Relaxing end to the day

After another day relaxing as my summer break from work nears an end, I spent a couple of hours with the radios to close Tuesday evening. 

There were seven different stations heard in the space of around 40 minutes from 2115 UTC with programmes from Napoleon (1611 kHz), Barones (1620) and Vrolijke Mijnwerker (1639).

A made a short video of reception here in England with the Lowe HF225 connected to the Wellbrook 1530 LN (above!), which you can view here:

And here are the logs:

  1. I've never snagged any pirates in the US on MW. Of course our bands are pretty full.

  2. Hi there. It's possible to hear some of the big stations when conditions are right. Relmus and Barones are heard over there regularly. I guess it helps when they are on a slightly odd channel and away from all your legal stations.
