Getting better every day

As I write this on Tuesday evening, Radio Barones is booming out of the speakers here in the radio room. He was closing down at 2300, but that time has long since gone! I wonder what time he will close down now? Another hour or two maybe?! Take a listen to the reception and a nice, long recording by clicking here

Conditions on MW got steadily better throughout the evening and it's great to start hearing stations with a good strength again. Yesterday signals were arriving here from the Netherlands from around 2000, which is earlier than of late. Let's hope this trend continues. Here are the stations heard over the last few days . . .

Observations

  • Uniek was doing well on Tuesday evening with just 90 watts of power. He was competing with Batavier for a while and with some qso stations, but once the frequency was clear he started to come through much better
  • On Monday we heard a new station, perhaps called Radio Polderman, although we are not 100 per cent sure
  • Black Power was testing on Monday and was followed on the frequency by Utopia who gave a report and then followed up with a music programme
  • On Sunday, Golfbreker was coming through loud and clear. Take a listen to the reception here
