                SOME EXAMPLES OF RESPONSE VIA EMAIL;

We get a lot of response, every transmission. Here you find examples of listeners emails which benefit our engineers, of some transmissions in  2018; 
                                                    -----------

YOUR SHOWS ARE THE DOG'S BOLLOCK'S  (THE BEST BEST) DJ BART STEENMAN !   Jock Wilson , Teacher English, Hohhot city , China .

                               ----------------     

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 <iain.cameron594@btinternet.com>

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. My wife was on her shift working in Accident & Emergency Department in hospital dealing with Covid-19 patients so I sent them a clip of you playing You’ll Never Walk Alone and it was very much appreciated by both of them and they say thanks very much.
Listened  on 6285 KHz until you closed down at 17:50 UTC – short MP3 attached for you.

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,

Patrick                               
                                                          -------------------------
Hei,

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.
http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristiansand

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. 40F, N-4629 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 <lackovicmich@gmail.com>

Hello good afternoon,
With great pleasure I am sending you a report of reception of the broadcast heard this Sunday in the evening  on march 08, on windy day but with a very nice winter sun.
It has been a pleasant program that I have been listening to while I was near my house but already in a rural area right next to the Barcelona airport.
I've been in the SWL hobby for years, I think it's about 30, so I hope we keep listening for much longer.
I have recorded a short video clip that I have on my twitter, 
If you consider it correct please send me the eQSL to verify the listening
Thank you very much for your time and until another occasion.
Cordially
Tomás.

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!

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.
73,
Heath Hall (bubblova on HFU)

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,  2019.

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 tcolgan@outlook.com.  

Long Live Free Radio!

Regards.
