Now that's what I call busy

I didn't get to the radio until around 2330 local time tonight (Saturday). Conditions the previous night had been pretty poor and I wasn't expecting to hear a great deal. However, in the space of only 30 minutes I heard Relmus, Moby Dick, Digitaal, Uniek, Spakenburg, Twentana, Polkaman, Monte Carlo, Dinkelland, Nachtzwerver, Jack Sparrow and Johan, all with signals that were perfectly listenable, and some very strong. 

I made a few recordings and put them together here:



I was listening to Barones on Thursday evening and he was saying how there had been lots of rain in the Netherlands which would be helping the ground part of his antenna system. The weather continues to be wet across the North Sea (and here too) and, given that a good earth is very important to the typical Dutch MW pirate antenna, it seems all the wet weather is helping with the signals. Long may it continue!

I haven't posted any logs for some time, so here's my list to bring everything up to date:

  1. Great log and thanks for confirming Jack Sparrow, 1628 Saturday 9th. Conditions were good as I listened to 23:00, so glad you followed up with a 'late shift' to make the most of it.

  2. Cheers Dave. 1628 was a tricky one, but it was confirmed when Mijnwerker came up with a report for him. All the best from here...
