Perfect day

At the end of a perfect day here in England it was nice to catch some activity on the top of the MW band. If the weather stays like this for a little while I think the speakers will be out in the garden during the evenings and we'll be listening to pirates from the Netherlands while enjoying a beer or three and watching the sun go down.


Here are the stations heard on Tuesday evening and some logs from last Wednesday as well . . .

Observations

  • There was a little static noise on the band on Tuesday night but some cracking signals as well. Top of the pile as usual were Calipso and Barcelona. Also doing very well was Witte Raaf and Noordzee. And Batavier sounded like a local station here on the peaks. Take a listen to my incredible recording by clicking here
  • After switching frequency from 1620 to 1654, Napoleon was coming in really well
  • There was a station playing non-stop music on 1659, including Man Of Action several times! Somebody testing by the sound of it
  • Last Wednesday there was some activity on 1476 kHz. Firstly, Poema was doing well with a low-power testing using a coil antenna, followed by Edelkampioen, who started off with a similar signal but got stronger, reaching around 44444 at the peak
