Extremely strong signal coming into central England from Radio Uganda this evening - much stronger than any time over the past few weeks. 10kw from Kampala - sounds more like 100kw!!

Nice to hear!

Been looking for this over the winter, but just seeing an occasional carrier.  All in all a very disappointing African DX season this winter.

I was listening to Uganda via Twente at the same time while I was at work, Glen. It did seem exceptionally strong.
