680 kHz KBRW Barrow Alaska

Many dxers have been reporting this one during UK afternoons recently. This is how it was sounding just after local sunset in western coastal Wirral Sunday 17 January 2021. Note sideband shapes and notch on 684 kHz to enhance audio fidelity. Perseus SDR/native software/Wellbrook 1530LNP

Mystery on 927 kHz

Bit of a mystery on 927 kHz with English programming. Probably from Ireland – video shows how it is being received in western coastal Wirral this afternoon on Perseus SDR/Wellbrook 1530LNP. Also 846 and 981 kHz from Ireland to show comparative signal strengths.

More NA MF DX

5 January 2021 saw a solar blow-out which started impacting MF around 04.00z. However before that conditions became enhanced. Never heard Winnipeg’s CJOB as loud as this:

Couple of hours earlier there was a bit of a mystery on 1250 kHz. Is the first station CJYE/CJOY 1250? I can’t transcribe correctly the words after “I’m Dave Pike.” Then do we have a fade and another religious station comes up and goes through TOTH without ID?

NA MF DX Season

It’s the North American MF DX season of course and this morning saw some Prairies action with CFRY 920 kHz

While Newfoundland’s VOCM was very strong at midnight on 590 kHz.
