Radio Algerie International 252 Khz
« on: January 01, 2018, 0007 UTC »
Good signal from Algeria this evening with pop music and French announcements.  S4 to S6 @ 0007.
0027 - Whitney Houston tune with OM announcer partying along, saying 'oh, baby' over the song, S6.  The auto-notch is busy with several NDB's in the passband.

My first check in several weeks (about 5 hours ago) showed 171 Morocco at -80 dBm.  It was nicely copiable.  That was about 45 minutes before local sunset here in northern Michigan.  Faded down and now seems to be climbing back up, though not as strong as earlier.

252 not making much of a show here, tonight.

Congrats to the first-time LWBC reception by myteaquinn.  What is your setup?

Looks like a repeat of last evening.  171 is big here in Michigan just before local SS.

What's different is 183 is there too, though weak, and BBC on 198 is present - a rarity as DIW usually dominates.

Nil 252.

Happy New Year.

Scott
