Tune-up noted at 0400z and rock music starting up in usb at 0408z, Saliva "Superstar" at 0412z, clear ID at 0415z, S7-S8

Just signing on right now..tripping the stereo pilot!  S7 over the typical summer static.  Looking forward to settling into the show tonight.

3 hour off-air C-QUAM stereo recording: 6965_khz_X-FM_C-QUAM_STEREO_0256-0556_UTC_06SE15.mp3

Video capture of the last 12 minutes leading up to the sign-off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAMGmtzfwtc

Big AM carrier noted at 2225 UTC then into electronic dance music at 2227 and a shout-out (thanks!).  Started out huge, S7 with wide audio, but the signal diminished quickly.  Just occasional audio now at 2239.

UNID just above the static with music.  SSTV @ 0349z.

MW Loggings / 1548.01 4QD Australia into Michigan this morning
« on: March 21, 2015, 1358 UTC »
I've been chasing this one for a while now as a carrier-only during morning DXing sessions.  Finally nailed some audio and an ID from 4QD Emerald, QLD. this morning a few minutes prior to my local sunrise.  Like the 120 meter domestic Aussie broadcasters, this too had the better signal using the North D-KAZ antenna.  When switching to my South-west phased BOGs which have done well before in picking out TP MW DX, it was only "barely there" as a weak het.  The D-KAZ wins again!  9,081 miles from Emerald to my receiver!  Here's a bit of the reception:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00ea9cVsboo

A nice opening this morning during sunrise enhancement brought good Aussie signals on 120 meters including big clear signals from V8LT Tennant Creek, NT. on 2325 kHz and VL8K Katherine, NT. on 2485 kHz.  The star of the morning was hearing flea powered Radio Symban on 2368.47 kHz from Leppington, NSW.  As far as I know these guys are 1kw max and this is only my second time hearing them here.  As before, they were just above the noise floor with Greek music which is much better than the almost imaginary carrier that I occasionally see on the waterfall during SRS DXing sessions.  I also caught a couple of new to me down under volmets on 2056u & 2201u.  I was hoping these conditions would trickle down to medium wave, but not so much...

All heard on the double kaz delta loop with stronger levels towards the north as opposed to the south, and almost non existent on the southwest aimed BOGs which I hardly use anymore for shortwave reception.

In tonight with audio and exotic African music.  Weak of course, but listenable at the same time.  Best on the North D-KAZ antenna, dancing between S4 and S6 at the moment.

MW Loggings / Great opening to the South yesterday....AT NOON!
« on: December 27, 2014, 1717 UTC »
I was dialing around the x-band yesterday around 12pm EST / 1700 UTC and noticed some stuff coming in that usually isn't there during the day.  1700 WEUP-AL was coming in well and tuning around more I noticed some other Southern stuff was skipping in as well between 1600-1700.  1600 WAOS-GA was dominating the channel with no sign of usual WAAM Ann Arbor.  With just a few minutes before noon TOH I decided to make a spectrum recording with the Perseus.  During recording I parked it on 1540 since I was hearing religious programming, and I was hoping for needed KTGG Spring Arbor, MI.  I was surprised when the station IDed as WTBI South Carolina, completely in the clear with a decent signal, at noon!  Seems I stumbled on a good opening to the South with a pipeline to NC/SC.  Highlights heard here at noon include these relogs:

1170 WCXN-NC
1290 WHKY-NC
1310 WISE-NC
1350 WZGM-NC
1360 WELP-SC
1520 WDSL-NC
1550 WKBA-VA

And these new logs:

880 WPIP-NC mixing with WRFD
1010 WKJW-NC
1210 WANB-PA
1400 WEOA-IN
1430 WEEF-IL under WION
1540 WTBI-SC
1600 WTZQ-NC during WAOS fade w/ no sign of usual WAAM

These were all heard using the South D-KAZ.

Listening again today at the same time revealed a mostly dead dial with a few things skipping in from 200-300 miles out.  In other words, typical daytime skywave this time of year for me.
