Special Events and High Power Broadcasts
Every now and then we do High Power (150 kW) Special Event shortwave broadcasts aimed at other continents such as Asia or the America's or the larger European area including Eastern Europe and Russia.
Examples of what we did in the past:
July 22 - 2016
We clearly touched the hearts of our listeners in true Free Radio spirit! During the show we received mails from literally all over Europe, and also from the USA, Canada, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Japan(!) the United Arab Emirates and many from deep into Russia and Siberia.
Thanks to everyone who responded so nicely, stay in touch!

X-MAS presents from Radio Mi Amigo International!
This Christmas we'll present you with 2 extra high power Special Event broadcasts that will cover a large part of the globe!
What better occasion than X-mas to celebrate the fact that in 2016 we became the fastest growing AM/Shortwave station in Europe -and possibly the world.
The large European continent and North America together hold 15% of the world’s population, over 1 billion people. Of course we know Shortwave is a niche but we’re convinced that this time more people than ever will tune in to our special broadcast.
Our special Event show will be presented live from Amsterdam in the Netherlands, with contributions from all involved with Radio Mi Amigo, directly from studio's in Holland, The UK, Germany, Spain and Equador. We'll introduce ourselves to hopefully many new listeners, celebrate with the current ones, look back at our 2016 highlights and play some very special music. You'll get updates of our plans for next year and we'll talk DX and Shortwave.
Please note the times and frequencies below and calculate UTC times to your timezone.
)* Note that in the U.S. the broadcast date is still December 25! 7 - 9 pm [EST], 6- 8 pm [CST] and 4 - 6 pm [PST]
Test transmission to Far East reached half the planet...
'Radio Mi Amigo World Service.'.. no joke!. This is how our Asian broadcast was received on the Indonesian Island of Bali today... :)
Our signal covered almost half the planet from Europe to Tasmania, the most southern part of Australia.

December 7 - 2016
Friday 9 December, 10 - 11 hrs UTC, on 11.730 kHz
As the fastest growing AM Radio Station in Europe, we are constantly on the move trying to find new ways to expand our coverage.
So far most of are broadcasts are aimed at Europe, but together with our broadcast partner Shortwaveservice in Germany we're exploring new ways of reaching other parts of the world as well, such as with recent high power test broadcasts directed towards North America.
This coming Friday, the 9th of December from 10 to 11 UTC, on 11.730 kHz, Radio Mi Amigo we will do a special broadcast aimed at larger Asia, Australia, China and Japan.
For this purpose we will use a transmitter located in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka (see picture) with a high power 125 kilowatts. Mi Amigo's own Lion Keezer is currently on the Indonesian Island of Bali and will monitor the signal first hand from there. But of course we're looking out for your reception reports from that huge part of the world!
This special broadcast will also be relayed on our regular 6085 kHz at the same time in Europe.
So please tune in: 11.730 kHz on Friday, December 9, from 10 to 11 UTC (that's 11 - 12 hrs Central European time)
As always you'll promptly receive our beautiful QSL-card and some Mi Amigo car stickers in the mail.
