Holiday test broadcasts and schedules, 2013

We're officially into the season and I've started to receive e-mails about upcoming tests. If you want to announce a schedule in advance (remember, be safe about it), e-mail it to me and I'll list it here. With any luck, maybe a few stations will be heard by more people and in other continents.

With band crowding in Europe this time of year, expect more stations to operate outside of the typical 6200-6400 area. Here are some of out-of-band transmissions, just from the past week (thanks to Dr. Tim's Pirate News):

6450 Readymix 2300
6746.9 Radio Pioneer 0920
6795.7 Pink Panther 0840
6807.8 Sundown Radio 1115
6909.9L Baltic Sea Radio 0912
6910 Premier Radio 1945-2100
6930 Transeurope Radio 1324
6949.9 Coax Amateur 0830
6974.6 Ronalisa Amateur 1308

Pink Panther Radio marathon schedule
12/28 update: PPR e-mailed to say that he moved to 6798.5 kHz 
Pink Panther Radio from Holland is planning to broadcast for approximately five straight days, from Dec. 26-31 on 6798.5 kHz. The station has been heard by a few DXers in North America, so this should be a good opportunity for new listeners to tune in.

Fessenden Tribute Broadcast on 12/31 and 1/1
Brian Justin, WG2XFQ, will be broadcasting a tribute to to honor Reginald Fessenden’s Christmas Eve 1906 AM voice transmission. The tribute was also aired on 12/24 and 12/25, but I forgot to mention it here. Kilokat7 logged the station in Michigan on HFU, so there are possibilities for listeners in the Northeast to hear it. The schedule is 486 kHz (longwave) from 0001-2359 UTC. This was advertised by the ARRL, so I'm sure everything's legal, but I guess I need to take a look at the rules that allow someone to broadcast music on this frequency with 500 watts. Interesting possibilities! Much more info is available on the ARRL site.

Radio Geronimo Test on 12/22
Dear friends of shortwave radio, something is happening on 6070 kHz.
Last Sunday the tests of our new stand-by transmitter between 9 and 10 UTC were
successful. This weekend we will try to run the transmitter for the first time
with regular programming.
We hope, during nighttime, too; this should make reception possible in the U.S.
For this transmission we would be glad to get detailed reception reports, esp.
concerning modulation.
Furthermore we would like to draw your attention to a program of Radio Geronimo
Shortwave, that will be aired on Sunday 22nd, from 10 to 12 UTC.
