World Music Radio 5840 and 15805

For several weeks there has been a problem with the aerial for World Music Radio (WMR) 5840 kHz meaning that the power on 5840 had to be reduced to some 25-40 W, and more recently - after a lightning strike - WMR has been off air on 5840 during weekdays  due to problems with the audio feed. Thursday June 27 everything was fixed  and WMR is back on the air on 5840 kHz with full power (100 W) and again 24 hrs a day seven days a week 

The transmissions on 15805 have also suffered from some problems, but is now also back on the air as from today Saturday June 29. Power is 200 W into a half wave dipole. Transmissions on 15805 kHz are weekends only, and 15805 kHz will be on the air today Saturday until tomorrow Sunday at 1600 UTC. 

Right now at 1030 UTC 15805 is audible in many of Europe (except close to the transmitter site) including Ireland, western UK, Northern Scandinavia, Switzerland/Austria, Italy, Iceland and on the East coast of North America (New Hampshire).  Please note that modulation on 15805 kHz is not perfect; not good in LSB or USB, but fair in wide AM.  

WMR is also audible from
