QSL: Radio Glan Clwyd 1287


Last season’s DX trip to Lista was not a big success with in general mediocre to poor conditions. Listening through the recordings afterwards haven’t been very exciting either. Luckily, there were exceptions. One of the biggest surprises when reviewing the recordings was discovering the signal of a station I haven’t even heard about earlier: Radio Glan Clwyd broadcasting from Bodelwyddan in North Wales. The station faded up on 1287 kHz one afternoon playing pop music with some jingles in between the music played.

Radio Glan Clwyd is a hospital radio station broadcasting from Glan Clwyd Hospital (or Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in Welsh). Station Manager Chris Reeves, who is even a HAM with the call sign GW8FVI, confirmed my reception of the station and says the station broadcasts with a power of 4 watts ERP from a 10 metre vertical antenna.

  1. Hi Arild, I’d be nice to have a look at your 800 meter antenna. Would it be possible to post a picture of it? 73, Marco – italian living in Poland.

  2. Oh, I see, thank you. I use a Tecsun PL660 and a 34m. wire antenna, but I listen only outdoor, though in Poland it’s cold too 🙂 I have few a nice station in my log though. Keep posting! Jeg snakker ogsa litt norsk 🙂
