Longwave-palooza 2200 UTC 15 Nov 2016
« on: November 15, 2016, 2208 UTC »
I decided to check out the Longwave BC band for fun, I have not done that in years. Wow!

162 France
171 Morocco
183 Europe 1
189 Just a carrier
198 BBC
207 I suspect Morocco based on the music
216 Monte Carlo
225 Just a carier
234 Luxembourg
252 Sounds like a mix, Algeria and Ireland?

Very strong signals, like MW stations. Amazing.

And now at 2217z, they are fading out. Maybe a brief opening close to the grayline here.

Lots of carriers on the 9 kHz medium wave channels, as well.

Update, now getting audio on 153 at 2248z.
