Atlantic Radio 6959.6 am on all night
« on: September 26, 2010, 0030 UTC »
been hearing Atlantic Radio from Ireland since 1950 tonight.  0026 now and still 34442.   Was just informed that it would be on all night, so here's a chance for you west coast guys.

Cheers, Terry


P.S.  Radio Marconi is on 6305 with a decent signal too.

update:  Marconi off at 0115. Atlantic still on.

Can't hear a thing at 0058Z. No carrier, nothing. Thought I heard a carrier a minute ago and some weak audio, but couldn't make out the audio and carrier is gone now.

0100z and still detecting carrier at 6959.6 or so kHz ... using narrow 250 Hz CW filter to do it though ...
