Plenty of action

Another busy evening at the top of the MW band!

As usual, signals started arriving in England just before 2100 UTC and we heard a steady flow of stations . . .

1646       2325       Casablanca 34333-45444 music programme


  • One of the strongest stations of the evening was Spakenburg, who was playing some music and English tunes on 1655 and getting a good response with plenty of messages on the telephone. Click here for a short recording
  • There was an interesting station on 1629 playing non-stop music from from The Shadows, Hermans Hermits, The Searchers, Mamas and Papas, Tom Jones and much more. No ID was heard but the signal had some good peaks
  • Nachtzwerver was a nice catch around 1675 in qso with Digitaal, who you can listen to by clicking here
  • Jaknikker was busy on 1512. The signal was fair but there were the usual foreign stations on the frequency. Batavia also tried the channel with a test, but we were unable to hear him
  • As I write this at 0100 UTC, Barcelona and Casablanca are still going strong with their music programmes
