Jalisco Radio, a new one for me.  Their 6-note doorbell chime after the Mexican National Anthem gives this one away and really jumps out of the noise:

MW Loggings / Michigan auroral logs: Aug.26th, 2018
« on: August 27, 2018, 2336 UTC »
Instead of chasing Pacific carriers Sunday morning on the western BOGs, I found myself scrambling in the dark to get temporary feedlines setup from the shack to the South DKAZ to take advantage of the auroral conditions.  With just a few minutes to spare, I managed to kickoff a spectrum recording covering the 7am / 11:00 UTC TOH.  Later review exposed a pipeline into Texas including several new TX logs.

Receiver: Microtelecom Perseus SDR

0230 UTC: 1089 Talksport, UK fair at times with sports talk and slight echo heard on signal peaks (they run multiple transmitters on the channel).  Relog but interesting to hear Trans-Atlantic stuff during the summer months.

0924 UTC: 1550 KRPI Ferndale, WA. over/under CBEF with South Asian chanting.  This one really stands out and easy to parallel against their webstream.  Relog but nice to hear again, especially in early August!

Both heard while testing the remote terminated D-KAZ loop which I just rebuilt.  Looks like things are working!

Beach Boys "409" at 0155z.  Weaker signal tonight, S4-S5.  Seems to be same station that I've logged here before airing the same oldies playlist w/o announcements.

Someone with music causing interference to X-FM up on 4070.

AM carrier with some weak music under X-FM's upper sideband.  Guitar solo, but just barely there.

EDIT: disappeared seconds after I posted this.

RLQT being heard here, faint signal with Spanish preacher yelling.  Hints of W807 mixing underneath on the South antenna.

MW Loggings / November 2017 Michigan BCB logs, including China
« on: December 03, 2017, 1711 UTC »
November was a good month that kicked off with China being heard for the first time on medium wave.  Station #2,100 was logged with the totals currently standing at 2,109 stations logged since 2009 (I don't count call letter changes).  November had a little aurora that brought in a slew of new Southern stations and November also had a few good nights of Trans-Atlantic reception that included time pips on 1080 on the 27th @ 03:00 UTC matching those of Spain.  Aussie reception is long over from this suburban location and probably won't resurface again until the Spring Equinox approaches.

Receiver used: Microtelecom Perseus SDR
