The log list

It's been a while since I posted any logs so, from a sultry England, here's what I've heard over the last couple of weeks. Receiving equipment here is the Lowe HF225 and outdoor Wellbrook loop antenna. As ever, all times are UTC

Observations

  • There were some big signals on the band tonight (Friday). Vrolijke Mijnwerker was the usual power-packed strength, and Mustang and Vloedgolf were doing a fine job with a very similar signal. Wilskracht was putting in one of the best signals I have ever heard from him and Professor Sickbok was sounding very powerful on 1640 - hitting the maximum 55555 sinpo - but with wide audio, splattering beyond 1650
  • As I write these words at 0050 UTC, Torpedojager is still going strong on 1620. During the winter I often hear him on a Thursday morning, so it makes a change to hear him at this time of the day
  • Great to hear Soerabaya tonight and with a super signal - again, possibly the best I have heard from him. It is only when you get a decent signal that it is possible to appreciate the quality of the modulation, and it sounded good here, with some nice bass but no distortion

  • Bluebird has been very busy during the last week or so, always on 1638 and always with a big signal here in England. His programmes often last for many hours. I have also heard him during the daytime on several occasions recently, using the SDR in Twente
  • Im always interested to hear stations in-band, and I am curious to know who it was testing on 1512 on Thursday, July 4. They were playing non-stop music by The Classics and coming in pretty well over here
  • Studio 69 has been using a different transmitter recently - the Skanti TRP5000, running at 50 watts. It looks like this . . .
