Quite surprised to be hearing RN da Amazonia with S9+, SINPO 55555, on 11780 at 01:00UTC. Looks like their transmitter power was upgraded but then again they are showing beaming 0 degrees, mainly playing music (Cumbia) and referencing Cuba, hence why signal is booming to my QTH.
I read that they has tested DRM and was in the process of getting ready to broadcast in DRM. Waterfall shows a wide bandwidth but no DRM of of this monitoring. Mix of Portuguese and Spanish Cumbia music.
Talk in Portuguese about Miami, so service is beamed to us here.

Conditions was good from the US to Northern Europe this evening. I was logging Iceland HFDL and Canarias HFDL quite clearly.

I have to tune below listed channel to be close to carrier, hence why freq is listed at 12585.5 but I'm tuned at 12583.8.
Generally I get good results in USB mode, bandwidth 3000 khz, and tuned 1.7 Hz below listed freq.

Getting solid copy of Sitor B/Navtex from KHP , San Francisco Radio, CA on 12585.5 USB at 00:30UTC. Great reception from Florida to West Coast using my MLA30+, 4 ft off the ground in front of my ground floor against my building.
FLDigi is a great freeware and decodes lots of digital modes really good with my SDR.

Currently hearing Radio Adventist broadcasting from Moosbrunn, Austria on 15.355 at 20:55 UTC in French. Appears to be broadcasting to Africa specifically Senegal. French spoken but Senegal dialect music being played in Wolof, Pulaar, Serer, Diola and Mandingo.
Currently religious musical theme on top of the hour.
Signal is S9+ with SINPO 55555. Wide bandwidth and excellent fidelity as shown on waterfall display on Airspy. Appears transmission ends at 21:00 UTC as of this typing.

In December Brazilian public broadcaster Empresa Brasil de Comunicação (EBC), assisted by Brazilian DRM Platform chair Rafael Diniz, transmitted 60mW of DRM at 6.180kHz (Rádio Nacional da Amazônia’s lower frequency) via a 20db gain SW antenna from Brasilia. The signal was heard on a Morphy Richards receiver at Ariquemes, 1,700km away.

Ahead of the official digital radio SW trial in Brazil, EBC engineers have been working hard to adapt their SW transmission equipment for DRM, already approved and much anticipated by the ministry and government. After this short transmission the plan is to purchase a 100W amplifier to boost transmission power.


As of this posting I can hear Radio Nacional da Amazonia on 6180 am, S9  but not DRM at 0104UTC in Portuguese broadcasting from Brasilia DF.

Looking at https://www.short-wave.info/index.php?                                                                               
11910    EBC (Digital)   00:00   00:00   1234567   Portuguese      Brasilia DF   
I can hear 11910 during the day but no DRM so far.
