A Few Recent Observations!
« on: January 30, 2014, 0522 UTC »
3330   CANADA. CHU - Ottawa. Putting in an unusually nice signal at 1015, good reception for a summer evening here when the local thunderstorm atmospherics were particularly quiet, Jan 28.

5024.95  PERU. R. Quillabamba - Cusco. Noted at 1050 causing headaches for Rebelde with quite a reasonable signal, although the Cuban was still the stronger signal. Years ago, the Peruvian was quite hard to hear, but over the past year it has become quite are regular signal. Perhaps it's getting stronger or Rebelde is operating on reduced power. Nice to hear the occasional Latin during our summer months! Jan 28.

9560   RUSSIA. Radio VR - Irkutsk. English to SEAs at 1110 with various commentaries, at a good strength and equal level to co-channel PBS Xinjiang's Uyghur service. This doesn't seem to be a wise choice of frequency, Jan 27.

9955  USA.  WRMI Wave Scan - Okeechobee. DX program for their Monday service at 1210. This was followed by the Viva Miami program at 1230. A fairly scratchy signal that was also degraded by noise on Jan 27.
