Longwave Loggings / 189 khz AM Iceland? 3:34 utc Dec 1 2014

189 khz AM S 2.5 - S3

3:34 utc getting some audio of soft rock or easy listening music, whatever,  nice base line,
can't hear the male vocals enough to ID language but may be in english.
3:35 utc  did not hear any talking or Id - into another similar sounding tune - similar vocals as well.
Just one more S units and this would be decent copy for 189 khz..
3:46 utc S2 - carrier almost gone, audio all gone..
3:46 utc back up to S 2.5 - S3  female vocals
Looking around - I see DIW 198 khz - NDB beacon out of Dixon North Carolina, good sign for me that
I'm getting long wave propagation from the East, just don't see how I'll ever ID any  AM above 200 khz
with all the beacons I have above 200 khz? Guess I will need a direction setup of some kind.

MW Loggings / KFSG 1690 khz AM 0305-0325 utc Oct 25 14
« on: October 25, 2014, 0342 UTC »
3:05 3:25 utc listening to Russian language programming  1690 khz AM  S9+30
On occasion KDDZ Radio Disney in Arvada Colorado comes up above this signal then fades back and KFSG rises up back to S9+30
3:30 utc English language public service advertisement then dead air to 3:34 utc then back into Russian language tune??

During the dead air time the strong carrier continued but KDDZ could only be heard very weak at best.

No Id's heard by me but a search for Russian language broadcast on 1690 khz brought up information from several sources
including Wikipedia on KFSG 1690 khz AM  Roseville California, 1 kw night  10 kw day - I have to wonder if they forgot to go to night time power levels tonight?

After the last Russian sounding tune program switched to  "elevator music"  This stations programming definitely sounds like it is on "auto pilot"

4:01 utc Lots of public service announcements then KFSG ID - sort of - as part of a disclaimer "The views expressed blah blah blah", back into Russian language program.
