    We regret to announce that the scheduled transmissions on Alexanderson Day, July 2nd 2017, with the old Alexanderson alternator SAQ on VLF17.2 kHz, at the World Heritage Grimeton Radio Station, Sweden has been cancelled, due to ongoing maintenance work.

    The Alexanderson Day will offer an exiting range of activities (details will follow), including two startups of the Alexanderson alternator, including a local, not aired transmission at the following times:
    – Startup @10.30 (08.30 UTC) with a local message @11.00 (09.00 UTC).
    – Startup @13.30 (11.30 UTC) with a local message @14.00 (12.00 UTC).

    Both of these startups will be streamed on our YouTube Channel. No QSL-cards will be given this time and no list of Reports will be constructed but we look forward to your comments and stories (images appreciated) to info@alexander.n.se.

    Please also feel free to share you thoughts and comments here in the forum.

    I’ve been listening twice every year with my home-made tuned loop-antenna, together with SPECLAB running on the PC.
    Input from the loop straight to the soundcard.
    I t was always a cristalclear transmission.
    Let’s hope the transmission on Xmas eve will happen.

    Dear Laszlo,
    Yes, this is correct. Unfortunately, on this year ‘s Alexanderson Day, we are unable to air any transmission, due to maintenance. There will be start-ups of the Alexanderson alternator which can be monitored live on our YouTube channel. See more information on http://www.alexander.n.se

    Regards,
