Saturday night fever!

For most of Saturday I was working, but I arrived home at around 2200 UTC and after watching a little TV, I switched on the radio at around 2300. With recent conditions on MW very poor for listening in the UK, it was a very nice surprise to hear some fine signals on 186 metres. Here are the stations we heard, together with some other recent logs . . .

Saturday observations

  • Listening to 1650 was interesting. Batavier was broadcasting a music programme with Relmus behind the microphone, but Radio Moby Dick was also on the channel. There was no hetrodyne, just two signals mixing and the stations taking it in turn to peak. One minute Batavier was coming though and the next it was Moby Dick.... much to the annoyance of Mr Relmus! Later in the evening, at around 0050 UTC, just Moby was on the frequency and he was coming in very well. Listen here
  • Very nice to hear Napoleon with some late-night music on 1657. The signal was very good and at first it sounded a little like Barones - and with some of his music as well! Click here for a short recording
  • Spakenburg was coming through with a very fine signal as usual, together with Monte Carlo, who tried a few different frequencies but was best of all on 1640
  • There was a well-known voice on 1636 but with a different name to usual! Radio Repower had some nice peaks on his signal. Click here for a listen
