Skimmed the band tonight. Currently have 171KHz on my ground-level loop. I suppose Morocco or maybe Russia.

I am in a neighborhood environment, plus near the stormy tropics, so LW catches other than NDBs are somewhat rare here due to noise.

Hearing Iceland on 189 khz tonight with a decent signal.
New QTH, so I no longer have my long antennas.
Was hoping the Kaz would pull them in, but nothing on 153 or 171 except some local QRM.

Just an FYI. Conditions the last few days have been good to excellent. RV 189/kHz booming in right now as well as a few Euro stations (not as strong). So for those in areas not as prone to catching these broadcasters, tune up ;)
