We get a lot of response, every transmission. Here you find some of those listeners emails which benefit our engineers and dj's, of some transmissions  ; 
The sound quality was great, plenty of power without sounding too punchy or distorted! 

Martin Davies, Welshpool, Wales.
Besides the fact that you play my type of music, you might be interested in another observation: your actual sound seems to be way above the standard for stations. First of all, your signal was stronger than I would expect, and indeed it was stronger here compared to other  stations on that band which I noticed on air at the time. And secondly, your audio quality was so much better than the other stations. Obviously you pay a lot of attention to the technical side? Vashek, Listening in tjech republic.
Hi Bart Steenman, fantastic signal and very good sound in Putka Finland. Glad to hear you. You are my favourite dj and radioman still! Its always a pleasure to listen to you, KEEP IT UP! Here is a request; Haloo Helsinki . Thanks ! DXguy Finland.

I have a nice DISCO Request for all Free Radio Freaks "Viola Wills - gonna get along without you now"

Listening to radio Monique since 10:28 utc on 6285 kHz (U2 " Where the
streets have no name", Simple Minds "Don't you" then The Blues Brothers
"Gimme some loving"), on my Tecsun receiver, but the reception is awful
So, i listen on Radio Monique with a SDR receiver in Germany with the
net: Your voice is a captivating voice, and the music is top!
And we wish to see the girls you were talking about a few minutes ago!
Go on spreading peace and love all over the world!
I keep in touch on Radio Monique!
Thanks keeping shortwaves alive!

Hi Bart, 


Briliant 54444 signal here in Dublin. Unlike Holland, the sun is blazing, listening to you in the garden on my Tecsun communications receiver with a longwire. 

Tuned in at 15.00 and heard Miami Sound Machine - Dr. Beat, Blondie - In The Sun, Frankie Laine and Ray Coniff - Midnight Gambler, Nick Kamen - I Promised Myself and Nik Kershaw - Wouldn't It Be Good. 

Were you on the Ross Revenge Monique? I worked for Radio Caroline as Stuart Clark and also read the International News on Monique. I wax on the shop with Ad Roberts, Dick Verheul and Herbert Visser. 

Fun times! 

Would appreciate a QSL,

Ahoy Bart -


We had your show on Ship's PA system this morning, and Crew enjoyed the songs you played.  We were tuned to a UK SDR with great reception.


Right now, we're located off the South Texas Coast in the Gulf of Mexico, about 100 km almost due South of Port Isabel, Texas.


We don't have a chance to hear you very often as our Sunday morning routine consists of arresting raiding and looting passenger vessels and taking hostages for ransom.  


Keep up the good work!

Hello Bart,
Nice to hear you on the air. I am listening on a Kiwi site in Parainen, south-west Finland. Signal is quite strong and stable. A joy to listen nice music and speech. I can hear you also here in Oulu with my Icom and MLA30+ loop antenna with fair signal. Parainen is better of course as it is 600 km’s closer to your transmitter. I am still suprised, that Monique can be heard and signal is readable here in the Northern Finland.

What about HIM and their song Wing of a Butterfly? From Finland, of course!

Nice Radio Monique signal in Iitti Kiwi SDR in Southern Finland. I am listening in Oulu, Northern Finland.

What about our local music from Oulu? Satellite Stories and ”Young Detectives”. They were under wings of Coldplay. They 

perhaps sound like Coldplay, too.


It has been nice radio day today. Radio Monique International!

Excellent signal. Overall SINPO 45444. I listened with my own private KiwiSDR in Lindome on the west coast of Sweden. My antenna is a Wellbrook ALA1530LN active loop direction north to south. 

I attach a small mp3 file. It would be great if you could confirm my reception by an eQSL.

Thanks in advance. Have a nice day!

Thanks, I'm still well. Yes, since our army destroyed russian troops
under Kyiv, there are no shellings at least. Many people have already
returned to the capital, however some danger of rocket attacks remains
in all cities of Ukraine. Most of battles are concentrated on the
southern and eastern part of the country now.

Hi there! 

Great signal and great music tonight! You are booming on 6305 kHz in Milano, Italy ! 

Keep up the good work and thank you for keeping the shortwaves alive.



____    ____    ____

To radio Monique,


Heard you last sunday evening (27-2) on 6325 khz with a signal of 3.5 on a scale from 0 to 5. Sinpo 35333.

For reception I use a Tecsun2000 with 40 meter longwire in the attick.

From other people in a Shortwaveapp I heard you are situated in Velsen NL witch is near my location. When I am on the beach I can see the Hoogovens.


It was a surprising mix of music and propaganda in favour of the Ukraine presently being invaded by the russian army.

Looking at the cold war era not the USA but Russia and China have to be considered to be the most imperialist in their behaviour.


I was in the Ukraine in october last year and saw the memorials of the great famine (1931-1932) leading to millions of dead people and the killing of people during th Maydan demonstrations in 2014. Ukrainian people have experienced life under russian rule and hate it.


I made some audio clips. On the video clip you can see freq, signal strength and hear the station name.

-1 Recording started 18:09 central european time. Music from the Simple Minds: Alive and kicking followed by Waterfront

-2 start 18:18 CET

-4 start 18:26 CET


Kind regards,


Kees Swaagman

btw I haven´t yet your QSL! :)


Greeting Radio Monique team!

 My name is Christopher Bagge and I live in Springfield, Massachusetts in the USA. I am writing to report the reception of your September 21,  broadcast on 6280 kilohertz AM in the 48 meter shortwave band. I listened to your program from 2135-2202 UTC. I heard your program of music and DJ talk directly here on the East Coast of North America! I do not use online SDR's. My receiver is a JRC NRD-515 and my antenna is a 43 meter half wave dipole oriented for east-west reception, through an MFJ-949E Versa Tuner II, into a Grove SP-200 Sound Enhancer speaker. Reception was a bit of a challenge, but I was able to ID 2 songs from the show! I would rate the signal as SINPO-24222. I have included a reception report and a recording I made directly to my computer in hopes that it might be of interest to you! If the details of my report are correct, I would be very pleased to receive an email QSL confirmation of my reception. I look forward to your kind reply!


 I am 67 years old and have been a shortwave enthusiast on and off since 1965! I am particularly interested in hearing free radio station on both sides of "The Big Pond" as we call the Atlantic Ocean in the hobby! My first European free radio was Radio Dublin on 6900 AM back in the early 1980's! I still have the QSL and sticker they sent me! I logged a few European free radio stations during that decade, including World Music Radio, Radio Caroline, Voice of Peace, and Weekend Music Radio. I lost interest in shortwave from 1992-2013, when I returned to the hobby in August of that year. There was very little to hear on the bands due to the emergence of the internet, and I was disappointed, until one evening I heard Borderhunter Radio on the 48 meter band! I sent a report and in a few days received a nice reply from the operator. Since then I have heard many free radio stations on both sides of the big pond! 


 I am a Global Moderator on the HF Underground website using the name "Skipmuck". At one time I would log into Ianns' Chatroom, but sadly the XAT site was hacked and personal information was taken, so I haven't been there in a couple of years. I am also a moderator on the Discord "Pirate" Radio chatroom. I simply love pirate radio and now that I am retired, I spend a great deal of time tuning around the bands in search of those elusive free radio signals! I am also a fan of the old Offshore Radio era! I was born in 1955 and remember fondly the early rock and roll days, the "British Invasion", and the "San Francisco" sound. I came of age during the Woodstock era, and continued on into the 70's, 80's, and 90's. I have not followed much of the music in the past 20 years, but there sure have been some good songs during that time span! Below is a copy and paste of my HF Underground posting of my reception. It is not the best, but it is my first reception of Radio Monique! I have also attached a rather poor recording of my reception....I am hoping this is acceptable for a Radio Monique email QSL confirmation! Again, I look forward to your kind reply and hope that all is well on the other side of the Big Pond! Best regards,

Christopher Bagge (aka Skipmuck)

Hi there. In response on your talking on Radio Monique international about the spy stations;


I found interesting news about XPA2. This was the numbers station, which uses tones instead of numbers. 


The listeners group "" found out, that this transmissions have a fixed scheme.


Look here:


The older station, which is very similar to XPA2 is XPA1. This station is also active, but not so much, like XPA2.


Details about XPA1 can be found here: has a lot of information about these "new" numbers stations. I think the spies will use these digital versions more and more in the future. 


Until next time!

Good evening and greetings to the Netherlands,

I was just tuning once again my recently repaired old valve radio, which was built in 1972 (Telefunken Concertino) for testing purposes on shortwave and luckily I picked up Your station on the 49m-band (est. 6300 KHz), where You were transmitting a multilangual programm with very nice oldie pop music.

I am a fan of pirate stations since decades and love listening to them, wherever and whenever possible. Great stuff!! I also looked onto Your webside and loved especially the photos from the Ross Revenge, as well as all the reports from allover the world and recordings.

The reception quality here in Kaarst, Germany, was very good. As mentioned I used my old Telefunken Concertino with an active antenne DX-500, about 30 meters above ground and an antenna tuner Mizuho AT-200.

The quality of reception in details was:

Date 30.10.                              16.34 UTC- 17.08 UTC

Sound                           4

Interference               4

Noise                           3

Fading                         4

Overall                       4

Here are some programm-details, which I picked up:

16.34 UTC         pop music, a. o. "Light my fire", followed by Your station ID ansd listener greetings; a. o. to a Alex, Kees, Alexander, Claudio; followed by pop music "The WHO - Substitute"

16.59 UTC        Station Id, with details about Your homepage and E-Mailadress; information about the close down; announcement "Make love, not war"; intervall signal

I would be very grateful, if You could check my report and send me an e-QSL in return, in case it is correct.

Keep on transmitting.

Bleib Gesund


______      _______     ______

I heard you yesterday, 26th February 2023 from 16.30 to

 17.00utc on 6260 kHz. Reception was good with a SINPO

 of 45444. Frequency was clear of any interference with

 just some slight noise and fading at times.


heard you on my Eton satellit 750 receiver with telescopic whip antenna, at my home in the small town of Padiham in the county of Lancashire in the northwest of England.


Soon after I tuning in you featured a music track with heavy drum beats followed by a song from, I think, Kylie Minogue. Later at 16.45utc ABBA was heard with Voulez-Vous after which you spoke a little about the EU helping Ukraine and at 16.55utc there was a special request for a Dutch song.


It is always good to hear you helping to keep the sound of free radio alive. However, it was a shame that I was not able to stay tuned after 17.00utc due to other commitments hence the reason this report is a little late in being sent.


Once again, I hope my latest report is of interest and I would be grateful if you are able to spare the time to verify again by an e-qsl.


Many thanks

FRANCE     Hello Radio Monique International.


I heard your station on shortwave 6275 kHz saturday.

Unfortunately your station closed down only a few minutes later, around 17.30 UTC/18.30 CET.


I live in an apartment in Aalborg in the northern part of Denmark, and I have no room for an external antenna.


With my small XHDATA D-808 radio (see JPG-file) and the build-in telescopic antenna it was possible to hear your station with weak to fair signal - as you can hear on the included MP3-audiofile of the reception. SINPO: 2-33333.


I heard the DJ mentioned the e-mail-address  and said "we'reeaving the airwaves...thank you for listening and good bye. Loving awarenes is free and so are we".


Some facts about me: I'm 58 years old, live in Aalborg with my wife and our son. I work as journalist at a local newspaper.

I have been DXing/listening to foreign radiostations since 1979 and collect QSL-cards from the stations I hear. If possible - and you can recognize the few details in this receptionreport - I would be glad to receive an eQSL/mail confirming my reception of Radio Monique mentioning time, date, frequency, power etc. And perhaps some more information about your station.


I hope to hear Radio Monique again. Keep up the good work.


Best wishes and 73's from Peter Witten, Aalborg, Denmark

Your signal was strong enough to listen.
I'll attach a screenshot of the SDR.
I enjoyed variety of music in your program.
But it was the first time to listen to most of them.
Of course, I don't know those titles, so I checked the music by "Shazam"
and I found the title of some music.
And I could describe those to prove my reception of you.

If the details in this report are found to correspond with your station log,
I would appreciate very much to receive your verification card or a letter.
Such a document would also serve as a nice remembrance of contact with your
I trust that this report will be useful to your technical department.
I had sent a reception report dated 27,December,2020,but I couldn't get any
response from you.

Yours sincerely,

Hi Radio Monique,
Good to hear you on the air this afternoon on 6290KHz in north
Worcestershire, England. I'm
using a SDR RTL dongle & HD-SDR software for shortwave reception
plugged into a G5RV antenna.
Your signal peaked at S9 with periodic fading. I heard your station
announcement & station jingle ID at around 16.55 GMT, and then you
played 'The Bee Gees - Run to me' & then transmission ended.

Keep up the good work.

Dear Sir,
I am interested in listening to AM radio stations, so I was very pleased to be able to hear your station

Listening date: Sunday 1st of November 2020

Hello Monique crew,


I have much pleasure in informing you that I heard your stati­on on short wave  and I hope you will be intere­sted in the following detailed listeners reports :

·         To: Radio Monique

·         DATE: October 11, 

·         TIME:  15.24 – 16.00UTC

·         FREQUENCY: 6285 kHz


             Signal strength: 4

             Interference: 5

             Noise: 4

             Propagation disturbance: 3

             Overall merit : 3

From 15.40 to 15.50 I noted sinpo: 3- 2- 2/3 -3-2/3! I think then there was interference from a utility station on the same frequency!


  •        MY RECEIVER:  Perseus SDR
  •        ANTENNA:  Dipole 22.8 m long, 10 metre high

I heard a program presented by Bart Steeman:

At 15.24: “The song of joy”

At 15.33 the song “Celebration” van Kool & The Gang.

At 15.45 “I Got you Babe” from Sonny  & Cher.

At 15.56  The end of the show whit “ Man of action” from Les Reed.

In the attachment  is a short mp3 audio file. It’s a recording with some fragments from during the broadcast. You will also hear between 1’47 seconds and 3’ in the recording how the reception was during the broadcasts/interference of the (I think) utility station! It has an idea how the reception was here!


I'm 67 years old and I live in little village near Veur­ne, Belgium that’s about 10 Km from the France frontier and 10 Km from the North Sea coast. I am on pension and I am dx-er since 1978! More information of my hobby of radio listening can be found on my personal blog:


It was the first time I heard Radio Monique on the (Free) shortwave band! I am happy with my catch!

I heard good music… is ideal as a background during my activity in the shack hi! I like this genre!

I still remember very well the broadcasts of Radio Monique from the free North Sea. Nice time then!

I think I have read somewhere that Radio Monique will soon also be on medium wave. I will definitely try to hear your station here then ! I have already heard 36 low power stations from the Netherlands of which I also have a QSL!


If this report is found to be correct, I would appreciate it very much if you will send me your QSL- card, letter or just an e-mail with the confirmation that I actually listened to a Radio Monique  broadcast on that frequency, date and time.

If possible, please put my name on the QSL. I would be very happy with that. I find this more personal!


Thanking you in advance for your reply and good luck with this professional-sounding radio station and If you should, at any moment, want more information about reception over here, I will be glad supply it.

I hope to listen next time again to your station on the good old shortwave!.

Dear Radio enthusiasts,


for more than 40 years it`s my hobby to listen to remote radio stations on short and medium wave. So I was very pleased to hear Radio Monique.Unfortunately I only catched the last few minutes of your programme, when I tuned in. Nevertheless I decided to sent this reception report. Please find the details of my reception below. My receiving equipment for shortwave-stations is Grundig Satellit 1400 SL shortwave-receiver with telescopic antenna. To verify that it really was your station I heard I made a short recording from the start of your program. Please find a MP3-file appended. This recording will confirm my data.


I would be very happy if you could confirm by your QSL-card or by eQSL that I have heard one of your transmissions.


Thank you in advance for your reply and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi guys,

Many thanks for the interesting and prompt response, and I much appreciate it that you assisted me with my hobby!

Had a look at Bart Steeman’s blog, very interesting indeed. Must be an exciting life indeed! As far as getting involved with Pirates for Peace is concerned, I will give it time and let the idea sink a bit more once I’m back in South Africa. I don’t know what expertise you think I have. As far as radio is concerned, my ONLY expertise is DXing, I have no technical knowledge of electronic, electricity etc. I’m an industrial chemist by profession. All I can do is connect as suitable length of antenna wire, switch on the radio and listen 😊 Also I’m still fully involved in my business and there is always shortage of time. I don’t think I have ever had more time for DXing than now, due to the circumstances of course.

I’m glad to hear that Bart has liked South Africa. I’ve lived here for over 50 years now and would really miss it if I ever moved anywhere else. It is a beautiful and fascinating country but it can be also harsh. The people here are very friendly indeed but they can also be quite violent. A bit of an old Wild West!

Anyway, thanks again, and the best wishes with your projects. Hopefully I’ll manage to hear your signal all the way in South Africa one day…

Dear friends,

I am a DXer normally living in Johannesburg, South Africa, and I often visit Czech Republic where I was born. At the moment I am “trapped” in Prague because of the Corona virus, and it will certainly be still a few weeks before it will be possible to fly home. So I decided to do something constructive: i.e. DXing from Prague, and especially to listen to radio stations, such as yours, which I have no chance of hearing in South Africa.

Like most DXers, I collect verifications (QSL’s) of my receptions of stations I have listened to, and I will appreciate it if you can send me yours. I hope my report below will be of some interest to you… I will be also very interested in anything regarding your station. I’m using WinRadio Excalibur Pro receiver with about 40 metre long-wire aerial and I’m located just west of Prague.

Besides the fact that you play my type of music, you might be interested in another observation: your actual sound seems to be way above the standard for hobby / pirate stations. First of all, your signal was stronger than I would expect, and indeed it was stronger here compared to other pirate stations which I noticed on air at the time. And secondly, your audio quality was so much better than the other stations. Obviously you pay a lot of attention to the technical side?

Under the circumstances it will be best if you reply via e-mail. I’ll be looking forward to your response.

Kindest regards,

Time:                    09h22 – 0944 GMT / UTC
Frequency:        6285 kHz
Signal:                  SINPO = 25433
Programme details:
09h22 – announcements with station ID and a song about radio by Robbie Williams
09h25 – station ID’s and announcements / a chat about the music, about being a DJ since 1985, “stay tuned” etc. (by a man – Steynman?) and “Where the streets have no name” by U2, dedicated to New York
09h32 – a chat about medical help for Italy etc. and a request to play the next song
09h35 – a sung station ID and “American Idiot” by Green Day

09h38 – comments on USA and their president, station ID, address etc., sung station ID and “your host” and a short announcement in German followed bya nice pop song.

You definitely need to keep going, there are so many people stuck at home with nothing to do and pirates on air is a positive thing. I also heard Radio Zona Rossa on air from Italy and IRRS doing the war room pandemic show. So many people are just ignoring it and it needs to be talked about. Keep up the good work !!!  Iain Cameron <>

Hello guys, just a quick email to let you know that I enjoyed listening to your special Corona virus show today – much appreciated.

I have my 83 year old mother in self isolation due to her age and having suppressed immunity.

Hi !

I was very happy to receive your station Radio Monique on this Sunday afternoon here in the south eastern part of Austria. The signal was weak, but without interference. I attached a mp3-recording I made of my reception.
I would be glad if you could send me your QSL.

Greetings from Austria,


Hearing you well in South UK!

If you want a full reception report I can send one but in general I'm getting you 35-40dB SNR with some fading and also getting you well on a D-808 standalone! (If you QSL I'd love to receive one!)

Hearing jailhouse rock currently!

Thanks for the broadcasts :)

Dear Sir,

My name is Arvid Husdal, and I am a 54 year old radioenthusiast from
Kristiansand, far south in Norway.

I am married to Bente, we have no kids.
My work is nursing, in the Kristiansand county "home nursing".
The reason for me writing this mail to you, is my hobby, dx-listening. My big interest is radio reception of far away signals from Europe and also around the globe. Pirate Radio on FM, MW and SW has always had a place in my heart for many years now :)

I have enclosed a recording of the signal received, here are the details of reception:

Date: 15.03.2020
Time: 16.00- NL Tijd

Frequency: 6285 kHz
Receiver: Sangean ATS909
Antenna: Longwire, 10m wire, "sloped", coax fed.

Great and varied music show, with lots of ear candy 🙂 Blues Brothers also I think !
Signal good to excellent.

Dear Sirs, I would very much appreciate if you found the time to listen to
the attached sound file with the recording of your station ,
and I would happily receive an e-mail confirmation of my reception of yor station if you find the recording correct and of interest.

Best regards;

Mr. Arvid Husdal, Palladiumvn.  Kristiansand, Norway.

Hi Crew at Monique!

Good signal here in windy Edinburgh. 
I'm listening to your broadcast on my new portable radio xhdata d-808. It's quite good. Bit too light and it wants to take off :)
Nice music, Duran Duran, my favourite.

Thanks for reliving the airwaves, 

73s! Bike DXer <>

North West Germany

Dear RADIO MONIQUE operator! Dear friend Bart Steenman!
First of all: Thanks for the great chat and shout-out and playing my request!
It was a real pleasure to have you this afternoon.
Well, this is my very first reception report to your radio station since 2014!
I’m a radio listener (DXer) since the 1970s and know offshore Monique also,
and even received a QSL card from them in 1985!
Today I was lucky enough to catch your nice signals here in North West
of Germany between Hannover and Hamburg. What a great experience!
Now I hope you like my report and I hope you may be able to check
and answer it with any kind of verification!
An E-mail QSL would be great indeed! Thanks in advance!
I'm very curious about your site in the Netherlands, anyway, I'm very pleased
having heard another foreign station again here in Northern Germany!

Here is what I heard:

Unfortunately I was not able to pick up more proper details – reception
dropped and I had to leave also, but in fact heard your station there!

BTW, my receiver was a SONY ICF 2001D fed into a dipole antenna.
My location was about 50 km north of Hannover, Northern Germany.

Anyway, I hope my reported details were correct for any kind of QSL!
What was the current location of this transmission and what was the power
and antenna system? Can you send some promotion material like
a studio, transmitter and antenna picture, a schedule or pics of the hosts?

Thanks for all things in advance and take care!
Now I wish much success with your further activities and KEEP IN TOUCH!
Happy New Year 2019 again and all the very best in future transmitting!

Hi Radio Monique Intl,
I heard your broadcast yesterday from 2302 to approximately 2440 UTC.  I'm from the US state of New Mexico, but listened to you via an online SDR located in Wrexham.northeast Wales.  The operator uses a 200' dipole.  The band was noisy, but for this late in the day, the signal strength was unusually good.  I'd rate your signal a 322, due to noise and quite a bit of utility interference, especially after 2320.

I heard looped snippets of several songs, including the Stones' Sympathy for the Devil, I Was Made for Loving You by Kiss, Butterflyz by Alicia Keys.  You gave your ID and thanked listeners at 2314 UTC and gave your email address.  I thought I heard you say, "We are leaving the airwaves now, good bye."  I thought your carrier was off, but heard quite a bit afterward that I'm not sure was still you.  You or someone said something about "Belgium" and played another song I couldn't ID.  At 2325 I heard Go West by Pet Shop Boys and at 2329 "Well, well, ok", then later at 2336 "no, no", whistling sounds and chuckling. Something was said about the studio, and then "well, well" and then more of Go West.  Between the dropouts, noise, and utility interference, I couldn't find your signal and tuned away around 2340 UTC.

If my report is correct (and I'm not positive it is), and if you verify reception of online SDR listeners, I'd appreciate a confirmation.  If not, it's cool I understand.  I just want to let you know I was one of your listeners today.

Thank you for keeping radio free, and I'll listen for you again.

Hello to you Monique...heard your strong signal on 6285 khz this morning from 1415 utc with oldies and ID and test tones at 1422.
Thanks for the show and any eQSL appreciated! 


 Hi Radio Monique, Hello from Texas1DXer -

I’m writing to let you know that I enjoyed hearing the test transmission from Radio Monique, 6285 kHz, at 1432 UTC on October 15

I heard you on a KiwiSDR software-defined receiver, connected to a 22-meter-high vertical antenna, in Bjargtanger, Iceland.

I controlled the receiver from Austin, Texas using the Google Chrome browser on a 2018 Apple MacBook Air (13-inch Retina display, 1.6 GHz i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD) over a 1 GB cable internet connection with an Askey 801.11ac wireless router.

At about 1511 UTC, I rated your signal SINPO 35333 for the following reasons:

Signal Strength:  The signal strength was S5 on the SDR’s bar S-meter.  I rated the signal good = 3
Interference from other stations:  There was little to no interference from other stations.  I rated the signal excellent = 5
Noise from the atmosphere and other sources:  There was some atmospheric noise typical of the time of day and season.  I rated the signal good = 3
Propagational effects of ionospheric fading and other issues.  There were occasional shallow fades, otherwise the signal was very good .  I rated the signal good = 3
Overall quality of your signal:  I rated the signal good = 3.

I’m attaching a short .mp3 audio file from about 1511 UTC so you can hear your signal. 

Here are details about the songs I heard (times are approximate UTC because I timed them from my audio file; songs identified using Shazam):

1432 UTC – Tune in to “Joanna” by Kool & The Gang
1433 – “You and Me” by Crazy Kids (Benny Hill theme)
1438 – “Heal the World” by Michael Jackson
1444 – “London Calling” by The Clash
1448 – “Enola Gay” by McCluskey
1452 – “Enola Gay” by Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark
1456 – “Rip Her to Shreds” by Blondie
+++++ away from computer getting coffee +++++
1503 – “Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion
1509 – “Kayleigh” by Marillion
1510 – Tune Out.

There were frequent ID and mentions of email address and webpage.  At 1508 UTC, there was a shout-out to the pirate radio chat room.

I had a great time listening to the music.  All the songs were new to me.  I’m not a Michael Jackson fan so his song was wasted on me.
I’ve listened to shortwave and mediumwave radio off-and-on since 1959 and have heard 162 shortwave countries from Austin.  While there aren’t nearly as many stations on shortwave compared to even 30 years ago, there’re enough interesting broadcasts – free radio stations like yours -- to make up for it.  Keep up the good work!

On a more personal note, I’m 73 years old, married, retired from three separate careers, and spend some of my spare time rescuing stray dogs.

I hope the results of your test were to your liking.

If this report is correct and useful, I’d appreciate receiving an eQSL at  

Long Live Free Radio!

Hello Radio Monique International:

I am very pleased to report very good reception of your recent special broadcast for North America via Texas Radio Shortwave and WRMI-Radio Miami International. This was heard on 5,800 kHz from 02.00 to 03.00 hours UTC on Saturday, 24 July 

I received the program using my own equipment here at a point almost exactly between Chicago and Detroit in the Great Lakes region of the USA. I have summarized the program heard below and have attached a short MP3 audio file of the first part of the show. Also attached is a screenshot from the laptop I use for my software defined radio (SDR) receiver. I hope this information is interesting and useful. If my report is correct, I would very much like to receive your eQSL verifying it. Thank you very much in advance!

By way of some personal information about me: I began listening to shortwave at the age of 14 in 1970. In the early part of 1977, I had the great experience of listening to many European land-based free radio stations while I was on overseas study in the Republic of Ireland. I have been a professional radio broadcaster since 1974, mostly as a radio journalist. I am currently the news director of the noncommercial "public" radio station operated by the state university here (, however I will retire at the end of this year after 35 years with that station.

Thanks for the great program! I enjoyed the music as well as the insights into the history of the Netherlands, of Radio Monique, and of the way Europeans view us here in the USA.

Program Summary

02.00 - The Texas Radio Shortwave theme, "Yellow Rose of Texas" played on piano was followed by this announcement in a synthetic female voice: "Ahoy mateys, this is Third Mate Susan welcoming you on this special voyage of Texas Radio Shortwave. Today we're listening to a program produced by Dutch free radio station Radio Monique International. Reception verifications for this special voyage are available directly from Radio Monique International. Listen for the station's email address during the program. Sit back for an hour and listen to what the Europeans regularly hear on the shortwaves."

02.01 - Produced station identification with music and the sounds of seabirds, with the announcements in male voices: "It's Radio Monique...the American edition." That was followed by a sung ID jingle, "Radio Monique International," then the announcer, Bart Steenman, said, "Alright! This is a special edition transmitted all over the United States and the rest of America - North America, South America, yes baby! A European station, that's what you're hearing. And I'm going to tell you something: what we think of the USA and what's going on in Europe, and about the country of origin of Radio Monique, the Netherlands. How it started on a radioship - all of that in this transmission." That was followed again by the sung ID jingle.

02.04 - The ABBA song "Dancing Queen."

02.07 - The announcer spoke about the Eurovision song competition, which he said most Americans are not aware of. Also mentioned that about 1,500 words used in American English originated in the Netherlands, including "Yankee" and "dollar." Also mentioned that people from the Netherlands founded New York City, originally known as Nieuw Amsterdaam, among other historical items. This was followed by Frank Zappa's "Dancin' Fool."

02.14 - The announcer mentioned, "What do we think about the United States? Let's be frank..." and went on to talk about religious outcasts moving from Europe to the America hundreds of years ago, making the U.S. culture seem rather old fashioned in European eyes. He added that many in the U.S. haven't learned lessons about racism and social equity that Europeans have in the years after World War Two. He also said that Europeans think the USA has "crazy cowboy laws" about firearms, among other issues. On the positive side, he said Europeans think the American music and movie industries are great. The segment ended with "Dirty Pictures" by The Radio Stars.

02.22 - The announcer said Europeans tend to think that Americans are hypocritical about sex and politics. But he went on to talk about things that were not right in Europe, like the monopoly state-run broadcasters had in the 1980's, which led to the offshore radio stations like Radio Monique. The announcer said that he was a DJ on the Radio Monique radioship Ross Revenge during that time also, and that the vessel is now a museum. Then mentioned that, unlike in the USA, no one in Europe likes former U.S. president Donald Trump. The segment ended with "This Girl" by the Dolly Dots.

02.30 - Bart Steenman talked about discoveries by explorers from the Netherlands as well as overseas territories it once held. He also likes old shortwave radios in America that are often shown in movies about disasters. Steenman gave the email address for the station as "radio monique radio at Hotmail dot NL." The segment ended with Shocking Blue's "Venus."

02.36 - Bart Steenman spoke about his personal philosophy regarding racism ("there's only one human race") and that everyone all over the planet should work together. Mentioned Radio Monique's "Promo Girls." Then spoke about research about near-death experiences. He said that Radio Monique is a member of the group Pirates for Peace, which is planting stations near Russia, the Middle East, and China, among other places. The segment ended with "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley and the Wailers.

02.44 - Steenman mentioned that Holland is only one part of the Netherlands, and that the country played a large part in global commerce over the centuries. He mentioned that soldiers from the U.S, Britain, the Soviet Union, and other countries helped people in the Netherlands to free themselves from Nazi Germany, "We're still grateful that they did..." Described Amsterdam as the world's "coziest" city and that attitudes are pretty liberal in the Netherlands today. The segment ended with "State of Shock" by The Jacksons.

02.54 - Steenman talked about some Dutch recipes, including pancakes (U.S. pancakes are smaller but thicker), and that "Santa Claus" originated in the Netherlands. The segment ended with "Radar Love" by Golden Earring.

02.58 - Steenman ended the show by mentioning Radio Monique's email address and webpage. 

Signal Strength and Quality

WRMI almost always provides a very strong signal at my location on this frequency at this time. On this occasion, the strength was generally S9 or higher with relatively little fading, some seasonal thunderstorm static, and no interference from other stations. The SINPO rating was 55444.

The odd "whistle" heard at some points in the recording is an apparent defect of this WRMI transmitter. It has been doing this for some time now but fortunately it was not loud enough to seriously interfere with enjoyment of the show.

Receiving Equipment

I use an Airspy HF+ "Dual-Port" SDR receiver with SDR Console v3 running on a Dell Inspiron laptop. The antenna was a 46-meter horizontal delta loop suspended 1.2 meters above ground level.

Thanks for a very enjoyable program! I hope to catch Radio Monique International again soon.

Hi to all at Radio Monique  International:
It is with much pleasure that I can report to you on the reception of your station Radio Monique International via WRMI on 5800 kHz on the 24 July  between 0200 and 0300 hours UTC. 

This is the first time that I have heard your station n

I have attached my reception report.

Would you please be kind enough to check my reception report and if it is found to be correct your verification of it with your eQSL would be very much appreciated. 

Normally I would also attach an audio mp3 file of my reception. However as I have just returned from lockdown in Sydney, Australia (due to the Covid virus) I am now in a 14 day quarantine period in Auckland, New Zealand and I do not have any facilities with me to be able to send you a digitized mp3 file of my reception. However I would be more than happy to send you an mp3 audio file on my return home.

I have therefore given as many program details as possible to help prove that I did indeed hear your station. 

Many thanks for taking the time to answer my report. I look forward to receiving a reply from you if my report is correct.

I enjoyed listening to your special relay broadcast through WRMI on Friday night!  It was a special treat to hear you!  The music was great, leading off with ABBA, my favorite group.  Unfortunately noise was high, so I didn’t hear all the discussion clearly.  But I did learn about the relationship between Holland and The Netherlands, that I did not know.  Also Hollands perspective on WWII.  I’m interested in anything about WWII, especially in Europe, so this was wonderful.  I look forward to hearing more of your broadcasts / relays, especially in the winter months when the noise is typically lower.  Please keep up the great programming with similar interesting and informative topics.

Please QSL if convenient.

Dear Radio Monique International,    
Greetings from Canada! I am very happy to report that I managed to receive your broadcast in English via Texas Radio Shortwave’s timeslot on WRMI, and I would like to send you this reception report.  
Station:  Radio Monique International  
Language:  English  
Date:  24 July   
Time:  0200-0300 UTC  
Frequency:  5800 kHz (via WRMI) 
Receiver:  Grundig Satellit 2400 SL with a 1.3 metre indoor whip antenna    
Receiver Location:  Nackawic, New Brunswick, Canada    
SINPO:  2 3 1 1 2 (Weak signal with a lot of noise and fading)    
Programme Details:    
Most WRMI frequencies come in fairly strong here in Nackawic. However, 5800 kHz is one of the frequencies difficult to receive clearly until after midnight local time. There was a lot of noise and fading throughout your show. Atmospheric conditions in this part of Canada haven’t been great lately. Even MW stations from the USA, which are easily audible late in the evenings, have been more difficult than usual lately.  
Anyway, I quite enjoyed the DJ commentary and music. I have attached 2 mp3 files, which will give you a good idea of the poor quality of the signal heard here in Nackawic:  
File 1: Recording at 0200 UTC, which includes Texas Radio Shortwave ID and the beginning of Radio Monique International. As can be heard, reception conditions at the start of the broadcast were not good.  
File 2: Recording at 0225 UTC. Signal strength has improved, though still far from ideal. 
I’m sure reception was better in other parts of North and South America. I hope the information provided is correct. If yes, could you kindly send me a QSL card? Thank you very much.   
Cyril MacDonald    


Hi this 24/8 from 0200 UTC to 0230 UTC at 5800khz I could listen to Radio Monique (first time in my life, of course!). 0203 Female song, later male voice (in english) 0210 Song 0214 male voice talking about "broadcasting", 0220 Another song (attached a video sample of that specifical song) 0226 Female rock song. I stopped listening at 0230 because the noise was unbearable at that point. 

SINPO of 45343 (with moments of NOISE 2, sadly...). Anyways, I could listen to your music! 

Attached an audio sample an a video clip.

Receiver:  SONY TR-840 (1968)

Antenna: Long wire 1,5mm (Length: 17 meters - 52 feet) attached horizontally with pvc isolators, at six meters of height (to the ground) three meters of distance from my house roof.

Thank you very much! Very nice to hear you, guys!


Hello Radio Monique International! 

On Saturday, July 24,  I had the great pleasure of hearing your “American Edition” programming relayed by Texas Radio Shortwave via Radio Miami International from 0200 to 0259 UTC on 5800 kHz, from my home in Saint Albans, Vermont, United States of America.

I have attached two short audio files as proof of my reception.  The first file, “Monique-5800_210724_0210_Howe1.mp3”, is 38 seconds long and was recorded from 0209:51 to 0210:29 UTC.  The file begins with a “Radio Monique International” jingle, continues with DJ Bart Steenman mentioning his name, and ends with the beginning of the song “Dancing Fool” by Frank Zappa.

The second file, “Monique-5800_210724_0233_Howe2.mp3”, is 1 minutes, 12 seconds long and was recorded from 0232:31 to 0233:43 UTC.  The file begins with Bart Steenman announcing “… and if you’d like to drop us a line or send a letter, the email address is, that is”, continues with a different Radio Monique International jingle, and ends with the beginning of the song “Venus” by Shocking Blue.

The remainder of the program consisted of musical selections interspersed with commentary by Bart Steenman on a variety of topics, including information about Europe, the Netherlands, the United States, what Europeans think of Americans, broadcasting from the ‘Ross Revenge’, Donald Trump, shortwave radio, out-of-body near-death experiences, and food recipes.

Listed below are the times in UTC when the songs were played:

0203:47 — “Dancing Queen” by ABBA.

0210:10 — “Dancing Fool” by Frank Zappa.

0219:35 — “Dirty Pictures” by Radio Stars.

0226:17 — “This Girl” by Dolly Dots.

0232:55 — “Venus” by Shocking Blue.

0241:30 — “Every Little Thing Will Be Alright” by Bob Marley.

0249:46 — “State of Shock” by The Jacksons.

0256:33 — “When the Lady Smiles” by Golden Earring begins but the music switches to the song “Radar Love” at 0256:47 UTC.

SINPO:  55434.  Atmospheric noise was most noticeable when WRMI’s signal faded.  WRMI beams their signal on 5800 kHz in a direction almost directly opposite that of my location.

I used a Sony ICF-2010 receiver and its attached telescoping whip antenna extended to its full 46” length to receive your signal.

If the attached .mp3 files document my reception of Radio Monique International during this broadcast on 5800 kHz on Saturday, July 24, 2021 sufficiently, I would very much appreciate receiving an eQSL confirming my reception. 

I enjoyed the eclectic mix of music you played on this program, especially “Radar Love”, even if there wasn’t enough time at the end of the program for the song to finish.

Best regards,

Stephen Howe

Hello Radio Monique International, Hi Bart Steenman,
today I had the pleasure to receive Radio Monique International on shortwave.
I got an announcement from Texas Radio International. So I got up very early
and listened outside the house in the nearby garden to avoid the local interference 
from technical equipment. Unfortunately the reception was not as good as
I hoped for. My receiving equipment is rather basic and I had some problems 
with atmospheric noise this morning. I could not really follow your interesting 
thoughts of the broadcast so well. I regret it. But I heard some nice songs and I still 
enjoyed this special broadcast from a distance. Thanks a lot for bringing your 
free radio show on shortwave on the air. 
Herewith I send my reception report accompanied by short audio clips:

Date of reception: July 24th 
Frequency: 5.800KHz
Time of reception: 02:00-03:00UTC
SINPO: 3 / 5 / 2 / 4 / 2 (almost good signal, free of interference)
My receiver: Tecsun PL-880 (DSP PLL) 
                        with telescopic antenna + longwire Sangean AN-200              
Location: Sangerhausen, a small town in the East part of Germany.
Program: English show with Bart Steenman via WRMI in Florida USA
„Venus“ -Shocking Blue/ „Three Little Birds“ -Bob Markey & The Wailers

I add three typical short audio clips for a personal impression.
Of course it would be a great pleasure to get your verification by QSL 
as a memory to our contact. Any reactions from your side will be highly
appreciated. Thanks for your efforts in advance!
By the way I´m 65 years old but still a keen free radio listener.
And I like to remember Offshore Radio of the past. When I lived in 
the former „DDR“ I listened to Radio Caroline, RNI or Laser 558.  
I hope to hear Radio Monique International again very soon,
perhaps with better reception. 
Until the next time -all my best wishes

Interesting broadcast, thanks for making this available to us here in the states.  I have been SWLing since the late 60's and used to listen to radio netherlands

Here are my notes from the broadcast.  I would appreciate a QSL card, hard or electronic.

The American Edition
special Edition
What we think of the usa
From Netherlands
my name is what is my name then music
dancing queen

legend of liza

Language 1500 words of american language are from the netherlands
founded NY was new amsterdam
us is non social country with alot of racism
crazy cowboy laws
not allowed to have a gun in netherlands
Movie industry
Nature is great
Rado Monique started because things were not good in europe
In the 80's there was only state owned radio, and Radio Monique the station had to be operated covertly

Radar Love was the last song.
