Some really nice catches!  So you just used a 80mb dipole, not an FM antenna?  Were the stations ID'd by RDS?

Thanks. Yes, I'm mostly interested in SW, LW and MW signals, so I have no special VHF antenna here. All the stations were received with 80 mb shortwave dipole, that's why there are predominantly the most powerful transmitters in the list. The results could be better with some VHF Yagi or so.

I highlighted the stations identified by RDS by red.

Спасибо! Now, if that's not an incentive to get my RTL-SDR radio up and running, then nothing will. This is certainly the other way to view Meteor Scatter, when you can not see the meteors due to cloud cover. Still, hearing scatter reflections on a vehicle's FM radio is a neat way to kill drive time. Did you also do the SDR waterfall from 25MHz - 30MHz? That should be interesting to view during Meteor Scatter.
I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

Hi ThaDood! You are welcome. No, I didn't check 25-30 MHz frequency range then. The signals are mostly quite weak at this type of propagation, so I'm not sure if I could catch something there in my QRMy location. You can see that most of received transmitters on FM band in my list have ERP ~60-100 kW, that's why they are relatively easy to catch with even my 80 mb shortwave dipole. The results could be much better with some VHF Yagi, indeed.
