Longwave Loggings / Radio Algeria Chaîne 3 on 252 khz at 210 UTC

Hearing OMs in what sounds like Arabic, not French, tonight (speaking rapidly) with minimal QRN for LW, and just an occasional beacon or similar intermittent beep from an adjacent frequency. Fades in an out, but relatively clear channel tonight.

Hearing two low power Canadian stations dueling on 1650 tonight. Sometimes its Jewish programming in French from CKZW (1 kw nighttime) and other times, even more clearly, it's South Asian (Hindi perhaps) programming, music and ads from CINA (0.68 kw nighttime).  Interesting finds on this top end of the MW band these days.

Longwave Loggings / BBC 4 on 198 khz
« on: October 11, 2020, 0300 UTC »
Hearing a news program from BBC on 198 khz tonight, which isn't common. Muffled audio under QRN, but can make out some details. Time pips just now at 300 UTC.

SINPO=24222 at peaks right now.

2018- Signal just peaking above noise with "Bluebird" by Paul McCartney and Wings.

Oblitterated shortly thereafter by UTE QRM, and then back stronger with spacey rock instrumental music.

2029- "I Can Hear Your Heartbeat" by Chris Rea. Signal improved considerably to SINPO=34333.


004- OM IDs with reverb, "coming from somewhere in the Great Lakes..." WWBR.
005- Into "Highway 61" but can't tell if it was Dylan or a cover version.
010- Same OM ID as at 004.
011- "Alive and Kicking" by Simple Minds.
016- OM IDs with reverb, "Pirate radio from somewhere in the Great Lakes, this is WWBR, World Wide Basement Radio."
016- "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder.
020- OM IDs, shorter, just "World Wide Basement Radio."
021- C&W song by OM, "I Don't Want No Part of It" presumed.
023- Same OM ID as at 020.
023- "Uncle Jack" by Spirit.

Still going strong, at SINPO= 44433.
146- "Everything She Wants" by Wham!
147- OM IDs, longer version.
147- "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" by The Spinners.
151- OM IDs and he IDs last song. "Hope you're having a good wind-down to your long weekend. Here's one we haven't heard for awhile." Then IDs again.
152- "No More Words" by Berlin.
155- OM IDs and then IDs last song. "Creeping up on 156 UTC." IDs next tune. IDs station again. "Having a good time here. Take care folks!"
156- "No Man's Land" by Bob Seeger. <<Fast but deep fades creeping in now>>
159- OM IDs with reverb, then brief burst of a bugle call (not reveille), and OFF.

Great, clear signal most of the time. Nicely done and thanks for the show!

235- Copycat YL (synthesized) Ball Smacker Radio ID.
235- Electronic instrumental music. SINPO=33232.

242- Copycat YL (synthesized) Ball Smacker Radio ID.

251- Electronic music with deep bass sound.

QSLs Received / Mystery eQSL Not Delivered
« on: July 07, 2020, 0015 UTC »
I received an email via Anonymousemail anonymizer service on Sunday at 7:08 pm, but there was no message or attachment (just a long string of alpha-numerics). Subject line was "eQSL" but there was no indication of station.

It seems like a much appreciated attempt to eQSL failed due to an email glitch at one end or the other. Just letting the relevant operator know, in case this happened with all attempts to eQSL for whatever transmission it relates to, and so they can re-send if possible.

Thanks and 73s!


0228- Rock music sung by OM I can't ID. Electric guitar and old school sounding (what we'd admiringly call a "garage band" in the 80s).
0235- After about three songs, seemingly from the same band, OFF.

Pls QSL, thanks.
