« on: November 04, 2018, 0036 UTC »
I tuned in around 0:20z and they're still sounding nice and clear! 750 KW is a lot...I pick up IRAN on SW a lot they're only bout 6,500 miles away from me...I don't recall ever hearing them on MW tho.

Great Catch! I've caught Iran three times on MW in my life and each time it was pure luck. Then I had to check against their SW service to make sure it was them.

With E-W props being off the past couple of nights, it might be a good time to point those antennas N-S? The Cuban and Mexican stations were battling it out with the clear channel flamethrowers at times last night.
