    Amhara State Radio (presumed), 6090 kHz, 24 SEP 2017, 03:25 UTC
    MDK2



    Published on Sep 23, 2017
    Copied in Denver, CO, USA on a SDRplay RSP2pro software defined receiver running SDRuno, and a homebrewed magnetic loop antenna.
    Ordinarily this frequency is dominated by Caribbean Beacon, but the island of Anguilla, where the Tx is located, was devastated by Hurricane Maria recently, so it's off the air, allowing copy of other stations reported to be on at this time. There are two such stations on the Eibi schedule, Amhara State Radio of Ethiopia, and Rádio Bandeirantes of Brazil. Checking on various SDR's around the world leads me to believe it's Amhara, but all copies were as weak as this and nothing definitive could be heard.

    Preppers BEWARE #3-- your COMS need THESE ham radios
    Joe Lalumia



    Published on Sep 24, 2017

    TelescopeMan encourages preppers to review the low cost used ham radio equipment available on today's market. Lots of nice ham radios at great prices - including many HAM SHACKS IN A BOX! Radios that work on all amateur frequencies. 160-6 meters; and VHF UHF along with MARS frequencies (Military Auxiliary Radio System) if legally modified.

    See the comments for the several good websites selling used amateur radio equipment.

    Radio Aparecida 9630 kHz, Brazil: first indoor reception since January 2016
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Sep 30, 2017
    I can hardly believe it, but this is the first time I've copied Radio Aparecida at home on 9630 kHz since 05/01/16. That statistic and the very low strength of this signal demonstrates how difficult it is to hear them in Europe, particularly at home. Check out the link below for my most recent outdoor reception using the Eton Satellit and Boni Whip antenna.

    Recorded in Oxford UK on 18/09/17 at 21:29 hrs UTC using an Elad FDM DUO and Wellbrook ALA1530 magnetic loop antenna outdoors (well, in the garden shed).

    Best ever home reception of Rádio Clube do Pará, Brazil, 4885 kHz - with the brilliant Icom IC-R75
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Sep 25, 2017
    Hi there, I've been Dxing solidly lol for more than two years now, spending countless hours at home and outdoors listening to signals all over HF. I know what to expect when I'm in the shack and I know what's possible when I'm on a DXpedition. On that basis, this rock-solid SSB copy of Rádio Clube do Pará, at home, with the Wellbrook in the garden shed surprised me greatly. The Icom is clearly a very capable receiver and with time, I'll remember all the tips and tricks to squeeze the very best performance out of it. Thus far, however, the signs are very good indeed.

    Recorded in Oxford UK on 16/09/17 at 02:55 hrs UTC using a Wellbrook ALA1530 magnetic loop antenna. Thanks for watching.
