1840 UTC - very weak here in central Italy.
1928 UTC - no carrier.
1955 UTC - noting that the carrier is back on the air and there is music but still very weak. SINPO 14221. I also checked an SDR in Germany and signal is similar.
2018 UTC - signal has improved. SINPO 33333 now. Email address harmonyqrz AT gmail DOT com given.
2020 UTC - digital QRM starts on their USB.
2135 UTC - Very weak. SINPO 14311.

I do not know.

As many have noted over the history of Western Europe. :) However, I also checked some SDRs in northern Europe and the signal wasn't better than down here. You must be in just the correct place.

In my QTH, on the new FRQ you can hear them worse than it was on 6.3MHz.
In Finland there were 25322, I bet they broadcast from the Netherlands.
If there is the same transmitter and QTH, then the antenna is probably not optimal.
I have not yet tracked them through SDR in the EU. You have to look for the ground wave in the day.
The channel is clean. I expected it would be better.

From propagation day-night changes, I think to Ireland.

I was just a bit confused at the first comment, as we were switching with other stations.

The station that I can't locate is Charleston R.Int'l

To Rey - maybe you're right. A few months ago when listeners from the US were excited about the LHH reception, I did not write anything, because in my case the radio was loud as it from Hamburg. Then something changed (moving to Ireland, or a directional antenna on the US) and now LHH can barely hear the noise level. From this comparison, I reached the conclusion that Harmony is not sending from Ireland (they were better). But I can be wrong.
