Some MF DX amongst the HF Wipe-Out

HF conditions have been dire the past week or so due to an active sun. However there has been some interesting MF DX available.

I assume either Family Radio WFME New York was off this particular morning or strange propagation conditions as KGOW Houston Yahoo Sports Radio was coming through on 1560 kHz at 0500 UTC 8 September 2015:

Later that evening I had some Brazilian reception on 940 kHz from Radio Super Rede Boa Vontade Rio do Janeiro. Brazil is unusual at this QTH due to southern UK location and Flag beam width not optimal for 220 degrees (Flag points at 300 degrees).

Kit was Perseus SDR with 10×4 m flag antenna and Wellbrook FLG100LN pre-amp/balun.
