 Broadcasting from Germany and Sweden

On the 18th of June 2006 we linked up with MV Baltic Radio on 6045 KHz from Wertachtal and took the 3rd Sunday slot of 12.00

to 13.00 UTC and later that year on 5965 and 6140 KHz until December 18th 2011 when MV Baltic Radio set up there own 1 KW

Transmitting station in Gorhen, Germany on 9480 KHz (now on 9485 KHz) and later on 7265 and 6190 KHz.

Relays were also made via Radio 700 on 6005 KHz between March 18th 2012 until April 21st 2013 from there site in Kall-Krekel,

Germany, also relays were made via KBC on 6045, 11650 & 9475 KHz from Nauen, Germany and Radio Revival Sweden on 6 & 9 MHz.

We are currently Transmitting via MV Baltic Radio on 9485 KHz, Channel 292 on 6070 KHz and WBCQ on 7490 KHz to North America.


​​​​​​​​In November 2002 ​EMR changed from a "Pirate" Radio Station to a "Legal" Broadcaster, but remains a true free radio station.

EMR began it's Legal life on the 23rd of November 2002 via the Italian Radio Relay Service in Milan, Italy on 13840 KHz. 

From 50 watts to Kilowatts, the coverage over Europe became much greater with reports of good signals in most parts of Europe.

​Broadcasting from Latvia

​On the 9th of February 2003 EMR started Transmissions via KREBS TV in Ulbroka, Latvia with 100 KW and a directional antenna

beamed in to Western Europe on 5935, and later on 9290 KHz.         


Signals from the Latvian Transmitter were very powerful on 9290 KHz throughout Europe with a signal 5 on a small portable radio

with only a short telescopic aerial far away from the Transmitting site in Latvia, they were great days indeed!.

Many thanks go out to my wife Jan and Daughter Louise for all there help in answering listeners letters and QSL request's.
