17xx kHz Roundup 3-4 April 2023
« on: April 04, 2023, 1221 UTC »
A few logs from last night, nothing I could ID, all weak:

1720 kHz: Weak carrier 2300-0100 UTC

1725 KHz: Weak carrier around 0200-0400. I did hear an OM speaking around 0310, followed by some music, all just barely above the noise floor.

1720 kHz: Weak carrier 0515-0523 UTC

Also a carrier noted on 1730 kHz much of the time, but this could have been the harmonic of a MW station, as with one on 1760 I regularly see that is WCBS 800 NYC (sometimes the audio gets strong enough I can verify it is them).
