LWBC: 153 Romania into Michigan 27 Sept 2019
« on: October 02, 2019, 0040 UTC »
0002 UTC: I was doing a casual bandscan a few nights ago of the LWBC channels and came upon weak music on 153.  I've never heard anything on 153 before, not even a carrier, so this intrigued me.  I was able to match up this music with Romania's SRR Antena Satelor:

So..a new one for the log book!

Nice catch! I need to visit the LWBC band again.  The crossed parallel loop is very directional down there.

Hey guys, thanks!

Josh: Thanks!  Cosmetically, the RBL-5 was an eyesore when I brought it home but I'm happy with the way it turned out.  Not perfect but much better than before.  Before and after:
