Hobart Radio International Verified

Hobart Radio International is a shortwave community service relayed across Europe, North America, South America and New Zealand and features the DX Extra and The Buzz shows! They are known as ‘The Voice for Tasmania’ among DXers and radio listeners the world over. They refer themselves as a radio station that’s “crossing the borders since 2004, telling the unknown and investigating on what's important.”  

I logged Hobart Radio International for the first time on 25.07.2015 (July 25, 2015) on 6070 kHz (via Channel 292) at 16:00 UTC - 16:30 UTC from my home in Kolkata, India via WebSDR at Univ of Twente, the Nederlands. I liked the unique mix of music, talk, comedy and DX news in their weekly show ‘The Buzz’. Reception report with audio clip of the recording was mailed to hriradio@gmail.com on Aug 01, 2015.


Rob Wise from Hobart Radio International replied with a full data eQSL on Aug 08, 2015 appreciating the effort and inviting me to listen to future shows and write to him again. The ‘DX Extra’ Show “which is about the shortwave and radio hobby featuring news, reviews, pirate radio and anything in-between” which airs from Hobart Radio International is one of the last remaining DX shows on the airwaves. I personally like their format and content. To know more about the station or to listen to their archived programs online visit: http://www.hriradio.org
