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?

New Dutch Low Power Station Atlantis Radio 1395 khz

The Dutch government has legislated to license low power private MF stations – an initiative well beyond the wit or comprehension of Ofcom in the UK. Here’s how Atlantis Radio was sounding in London at midnight UTC. Atlantis is of course an old offshore pirate name from the past

1440 YNRM Radio Maranatha Managua Nicaragua heard in London

Been a while since I posted (yet again) and a very belated Happy New Year to whoever reads this…

MF has been rubbish for couple of months or so but with the Euro shut-down of France/Germany and Luxembourg MF stations some more DX becomes possible. The morning of 1 February had some very interesting conditions towards Latin America and I logged my first Nicaraguan: See how Radio Maranatha was sounding on this clip –

First time round with NR and second without. ID is “Rios de Agua Viva” – see http://moladx.blogspot.com.es/2013/04/yna3rm-1440-khz-radio-maranatha-managua.html¬†for more details and thanks to JF and MMS for the tip and ID.
