Trans-Atlantic MW 18 March 2014 0227Z
« on: March 18, 2014, 0330 UTC »
1206 kHz 0227Z 15411 S- About 30 seconds of music on 1206. Pink Panther theme. Confirmed that by also listening to the Twente WebSDR.

1215 kHz Also faded in & out. Heard music, but unable to ID it.
1089 kHz at 0313A Could hear a male & female talking. Same as via WebSDR.
A lot of other scattered hets around MW tonight. Some strong ones, but too close to domestic stations to hear anything useful.


First time hearing MW TA here.

Congrats, nice job!  1206 is usually France, 1215 usually Absolute Radio, UK and 1089 should be Talksport, also UK.  I used to enjoy listening to Absolute Radio via their webstream but they recently blocked US access for whatever reason.

I was quite thrilled. For a very long time wanted to catch Europe, but never heard 'em.

Found even stronger signals on LW from Europe and listened to those way past my bedtime. Got SDR recordings of the MW & LW stuff.

Part of me hopes for another great night, but part of me wants to go to bed early. :)
