Normal service is resumed!

Well I'm very happy to report that conditions on the MW were something like back to normal this evening with plenty of signals arriving from the Netherlands with good strength. For the last week or so I had been thinking maybe the antenna here was not working properly - but no such problem this evening and even the old 1940s valve receiver was even able to pick up the pirates . . . 





And here are the stations heard at our location in England during the last few days

Observations

  • We have been listening late during the evening for the last three nights, and reception on Saturday was best of all, with some fine signals. Digitaal was doing really well and Mondeo was giving maybe the strongest signal we have heard from him
  • Zonneschijn was coming in very well during his qso and although we haven't heard this station before, the voice behind the microphone sounded very familiar. Click here for a recording
  • If you are up and around very late in the evening, try checking 1645 because Radio Pandora can often be heard. On Friday night he came on to play a few records and had a real powerhouse signal
  • Radio Polkaman has been busy for the last few nights, playing his favourite music into the early hours with some very long programmes. His transmitter power is not much but there can be some very nice peaks on his signal. Click here for an example from Friday evening
