Radio Nikkei is Japan’s nationwide free-to-air shortwave commercial radio station. The language is almost exclusively in Japanese, except for an English language learning program. The station is operated by Nikkei Radio Broadcasting Corporation and commenced broadcasting on the 27th day of August 1954.

The overall reception of Radio Nikkei was fair. The reception was severely impacted by severe static crashes due to storms in Australia.


Below is a short video of my reception of Radio Nikkei.
