Managed to sell some of our old household things here and buy another AM mediumwave transmitter
it's only 20 watts but will be heard by many people in KENT / ESSEX areas.

April tests continue. On for a few hours at a time during the days. FM and Mediumwave have feeds in
north-Kent and east-Essex areas. shortwave bands at weekends.

Tests at the end of March and through april will be using some of the older kit. The newer AM and
SSB transmitters were lost over the past coupleof months, so old-kit out of storage and back into use.

Our feb/march transmissions were ended early by an attack on the output site resulting in the loss
of the 1602 mediumwave transmitter it's link and the use of the site for any future broadcasts.

Sat 8th Feb. 6400 and 1602 rants against canadian government and R.C.M.P. About gas pipeline on
Wet'Suwet'en First-Nations teritory without the consent of the chiefs.

End of Jan start of Feb there have been engineering tests on 6400kHz AM using two of the old valve-
based transmitters and a replacement aerial-tuning-unit. Testing on 6400 and 6995 will continue 1/2 Jan.
The test on 31/1/2020 ended with an appeal for help replacing the shortwave SSB transmitter.

The transmissions on the 18th/19th of Jan were stopped once again by faults in the aerial system.
When the 42 Metre band (6995 kHz USB) transmitter was powered-up the aerial tuning unit failed to
match and destroyed the transmitter. This was the stations only high-power transmitter, and now only
a low-power (125 Watt) unit is available until it is repaired or replaced. Next transmissions will be
on the 48 Metre band on the original frequency of 6400kHz AM, until the transmitter is replaced.

If you have a 250 to 750watt marine/broadcast shortwave set we can have, please get in touch !

Sat 04 Jan 2020. Weekend transmission All Ok. Activity at output site cut sunday broadcasts short.

Saturday 21st (Winter Solstice) was spent in Ramsgate at a punk gig. and then back to base to set-up for
the transmissions 1602 and 6995USB. 6995kHz is now the staions main frequency and only occasionaly on the
48m band frequency of 6400kHz. Tones now precede transmissions.

Been doing some repairs on the 250 watt SSB transmitter, and testing the 1602 AM mediumwave kit.
in preperation for the broadcasts next weekend. (21/22 Dec 2019). Also Checking out the 45 foot mast.

Text for the Oct/Nov broadcasts is up. (see the text-files above) MP3 will follow shortly. This weekend
is on Six-Nine-Nine-Five USB. The main 48M band sender will be on again in December.
The next political broadcasts for December will be released Early December. Keep an ear out for it.

November transmissions (early-hours) are more on greed, and politics / voting / Anti-Fascism. These are
still on 6995kHz USB and locally on 1602 / VHF-FM.
Transmission on the 21st went all ok with 20Watts on 1602 and 80W on 6995USB. But on 22nd the antenna
refused to match to to the 48M (6400kHz) transmitter. and caused it to fail. The 6995USB was put on-air
while the reserve transmitter was set-up. This was used tor the remainder of the broadcast. The reserve
unit is a FET based 60 watt unit and doesn't sound as warm as the valve based main-TX (now being repaired).

Mediumwave transmitter has now been repaired and will be back in service for the next broadcasts.
(this was recovered from the output-site after a recent broadcast and rain had got into the power
supply. The FM and shortwave transmitters were all Ok.

The station has been on-air for a few hours a few times a month for the past few months.
Usually 6400 and 3945, (as well as FM and Mediumwave locally). Also, the ssb tests on 43metres have been
more regular for the past four broadcasts using our 250 watt transmitter (For Night broadcasts).

Feed is ONLY available via the "Harrys-Playground" maze at qq22.net Please don't ask for a link!

3945 in the 75M band, 6400 (and other) in the 48M band, also occasionally in the 43M band on SSB.
poss on other SW frequencies. Various VHF/FM worldwide, and locally on mediumwave at 1602kHz.

The equipment in use here at TOR-Radio is fairly basic. We make good use of ex-marine radio transcievers
and transmitters. SKANTI TRP series are very useful. The best are 750 and 400 watt versions. BUT the 250w
is also a good unit. The original valve based transmitters are still used, but later FET based units are far
more efficient, and make running from batteries or generators easier!
Recently the last of the SKANTI trp HF/SSB units and it's aerial-tuner failed, destroying both! And the attack
on the Kent mediumwave site et the end of Feb destroyed the 80watt transmitter and link. So there has been a
panic to get the mediumwave and the 6995kHz USB running again.
Our aerial systems often get damaged in high winds!, but vandals armed with clubs and metal-bars is getting nasty!
The studio is a shared facility also used for recording / editing for a soundscapes website, and used by us when
not being used. We can often only make use of this at weekends. We are looking to fund our own more permanant
studio and links sites to allow more regular broadcasts, and cover a greater area.

URGENT Fundraising Appeal...

Hello all TOR Radio listeners! I'm trying to fund the purchase of various things to keep the station on-air...
so if you wish to help out it would be very useful!

ALSO, I have a wish-list.... Studio-Parts. Audio-mixers, rackmount CD players, Turntables, Microphones and stands, Effects processors,
Compressors/limiters, STL-Linking eqp't.

Link and Transmitter site parts. fixed and portable aerial-masts, uhf YAGI antennas, microwave link gear,
