"RCW is an experiment born of a group of people who love the shortwave radio product facing the constant disappearance of many international broadcasters, including the former RNW which has been a point of inspiration and creation of this experiment".

Here is some carrier on 7290 kHz. But most probably this carrier belongs to the CNR1 (100 kW transmitter near Beijing).
LOC: Kyiv, Ukraine
RX1: Degen DE-1103 portable
RX2: Xhdata D-808 portable
RX3: Airspy Mini SDR + Spyverter
ANT1: 80 mb dipole
ANT2: Long wire (10 meters)
ANT3: Homemade M0AYF active loop
ACC: Homemade passive preselector & phasing device

I saw this too late to even try for the Chilean.  Darnit!  I love that they've taken inspiration from RNW, though.  Yo se exactamente que es esa inspiracion, porque me siento al mismo manera. 

I hope they test again, and use a frequency that isn't stomped on by China.  Good luck, eh?
