11 MHZ ....15 MHZ listening
« on: June 25, 2023, 2251 UTC »
I see a lot of interesting reports of steady strong signals on 11mhz ?? 15mhz on facebook People posting short clips of playback of really strong steady signals playing music. Any special interest of activity on these frequencies during the daytime?

I haven't heard anything, but maybe the Chinese have shipped the Cubans some modern HF transmitters as they're buddy-buddy now?

I don't do Facebook, stalkers lurk there.

Might have been a slight uptick in the propagation. There is music on 11780 most nights, that's Amazonia, from Brazil -- a station located near the capital that serves the Amazon region, Rondonia, Mato Grosso, and similar regions.

Without having any specific frequencies mentioned (or locations of the FB posters you refer to), that's the only obvious station I can think of that plays music on the 11 MHz broadcast band.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
