Shortwave Stations with "Roosters"
« on: September 29, 2011, 2343 UTC »
Hi all:

The other morning I was tuning around the 9 Mhz band and heard a crowing rooster on I think they said Radio Marti, can't quite remember.  Anyway, it brought a smile to my face and got me moving for the morning.

This morning I tuned 5025 khz Radio Rebelde Cuba (~11:30 UTC) and again heard a crowing rooster, I turned it up for my 7 y.o. daughter and she really liked it.

Now I don't know if crowing roosters on the radio is a Cuban thing, a Spanish thing or a shortwave thing ;), but it sounds good to me first thing in the morning.

So, a fun thread, feel free to list any reports of crowing roosters on shortwave, including if anyone can confirm R. Marti's morning crowing rooster frequency.
