189 khz Iceland 3-19-14 2:10 utc
« on: March 19, 2014, 0221 UTC »
I have a decent carrier and faint modulation on 189 khz  this evening.
2:10 utc Female announcer talking - I thought it sounded like Spanish or maybe Italian language.
into some music - Male singer fading sown into the noise.
2:18 utc I can hear her again, really sounds a bit like Spanish, still could be Italian.. Can't tell darn it...
.....
2:44 utc - signal getting much stronger right now - Playing Scorpions Winds of Change- Last time
same female announcer was talking - pretty sure now - sounds like Iceland, not Spanish or Italian language.
.....
Also have 'visible" modulation and good carrier on 162 khz now - too much static there for me, also what look like carriers on 153, 170, 177, 180 and 190 khz.
As usual on LW everything slowly fading in and out....
.....
3:01 utc  kicked in the "Noise blanker"  On 162 khz  Male then female announcer speaking in French....
.....
3:10 utc  189 khz two females talking, also shut down LED porch lights and ultrasonic humidifier, ahh that's better,  definitely Iceland...

LW was great here last night, but tonight there's some local RFI taking out the LW BC band rendering it useless.  >:(
