been on the frequency since before 0300z and now it's just started to get barely readable. I couldn't make a decent recording
of this. Sad Prop was not on our side tonight.

I was listening to a weak AM around 6950 for a while.  I got suspicious and found a loose coax, and it was an local MW station.  Since I fixed that....nothing seen here.  I usually have good luck with RTN.

If you have missed one of the program, visit our website: http://balkanradiointernational.blogspot.com ! Soon we'll have regular broadcasts to America with 500W on 19 and 11 meters band. Hope the propagation will be good and you'll be able to hear the whole broadcasts.

A quick check of the SDR recordings showed nothing at all on/near 6900, other than some pescadores on 6900 LSB.

True North was busy and couldn't relay my program, so try again this evening at 0300-0330UTC, I expect very good propagation. Enjoy the program!
