|Sunshine in the evening here in England|
- Our feature on Radio Astronaut went down well with several readers of the blog. Let's hope they were tuned in to hear his broadcast on Tuesday evening, when his signal was peaking even better than on his previous broadcast. And all with 40 watts
- Philadelphia has been busy for the last few evenings. I mentioned him on the blog recently, and I now have a little more information about this station. He is using a homebrew tx and, just like Astronaut, he uses the 807 valve - two of them, in fact. This gives around 65 watts. He can usually be heard on 1665 kHz. I often get other more distant stations coming in on the frequency, but on the peaks, Philadelphia has been received pretty well
- Interesting to hear Black Power on 1609 kHz on Monday evening. I guess with the imminent closure of Radio Waddenzee on 1602, pirates will be moving ever lower and inside the main MW band. Perhaps this will lead to more listeners?
- I haven't posted any recordings for a while, but here's a great one. Radio Electron is famous for his whispering voice late at night, and you can hear him particularly well here, recorded on Monday evening. Reception is so good and clear that you can even hear the fans in the background when the microphone is opened!
