Checked 9370 around 2100 UTC and found Overlander Ministry programming.

So frustrating. Station did not appear this weekend. Must be the freezing weather!

So, I'll wait another week.

Yeah, I got that one also. Big band music, Glen Miller etc.

Mystery. Let's tune in tomorrow.

I'm asking the dumbest of all dumb questions: Has anyone (or known of anyone) actually QSLed a number station? Letter to the Exterior Ministry of Cuba, etc.  Just askin'  ;)

As I have three Labradors I might try this novel approach to the hobby! Good DX. What portable RX were you using?

A sign of the times. One of the biggest costs in publishing (next to salaries which in MT's case were minimal due to mainly volunteer columnists and the Van Horn family) is hard printing. In a digital age these costs are rising more and more. Seems that people simply didn't flock to subscribe to MT Express in their droves as hoped for. The hard copy was still the most popular among the readership. Hence the collapse.  I understand that Pop Comm's digital magazine, delivered via Zinio, is proving a great success. That's how I read it on my tablet, saving money and printing out only when needed.

I am not sure either. The language was Pashto (or possibly Persian.) I'm definitely on the case!

Many thanks for sharing knowledge and experience! Your explanation sounds very plausible. I plan to return to that f and monitor some more.

Mine was a valve (U.S. tube) H.A.C. Kit back in the late 1960s. Simple but incredible receiver!

I am intrigued about these "assault toilets." Are they Upper Side Bowl, or Lower Side Bowl?

Hmm.  Not saying you are wrong, T!, but I did listen on for some twelve minutes. Even ran the tape in case I had to leave the room for anything. Nothing more was heard.

7/22/13 2205z 15360 KHZ  Folk Music.  Pashto language.  Male and Female announcers.  Needed to confirm, so....

7/23/13 2155z 15360 KHZ  No signal. Waiting!  2158z  Carrier wave for 20 seconds. Then folk music.  2200z Westminster chimes.  Male announcer with (I think) news headlines.  Interference from SS station started 2202z.

Female VX in SS.  Very poor signal with a lot of noise.  Signal ceased at 2200z.

Hmm. Pirate toilets. Whatever next? :D
