An Interesting Day On SW In Alaska....
« on: September 10, 2023, 2107 UTC »
WELLLLL.. it's been a VERY interesting day on Shortwave radio so far!

I heard World Music Radio on 15700khz from Denmark at 2002UTC playing a spanish merengue type song followed by a station jingle then a slower more laid back yet not a ballad type spanish song. Station is licensed for 2KW beaming at 180 degrees azimuth but only runs 300 watts! SINPO was 45344.

Then I had VOA Afrique with hit music on 9470khz via Botswana at 2024UTC, they switch to Hausa at 2030UTC also on 9470khz via Sao Tome & Principe. Well, STP signed on 2 minutes early with the french transmission still playing music and STP fired off the "This is the Voice Of America, Washington DC signing on" followed by Yankee Doodle.
