Back from Wales

After a busy few weeks at work I spent last week on lots of family days out and a long weekend in North Wales. The radio and small loop antenna went with us, but there was not much time for listening. I did manage to hear Calimero, Havanna and Witte Tornado while I was tuning around but, despite being in a remote farm location, there was annoyingly plenty of noise to contend with.

I'm back at home now and I've been listening around tonight (Monday) when there were some nice catches. Boomerang isn't on MW too much these days, but he was on air on 1625 kHz tonight with a fine signal:



Paul McCartney and The Frog Chorus caught my attention towards the end of the evening on 1611 and it turned out to be Radio Daniel. I think he had been on the frequency for a few hours with a programme, but when I heard him he was qsoing with Amigo:



Earlier I heard some music coming through on 1668 kHz. After a few inquiries I found out it was Blue Star testing his audio with just 20 watts. He was peaking with a sinpo of around 35433 which was a great effort. He continues to be regularly active on 747 kHz as well, but I've yet to hear him or any other Dutch pirate on that part of the band. I will keep on trying!



Here are all of the logs for Monday night, plus some others to bring the record up to date:
