World Music Radio

Sunday, May 19 2019

World Music Radio on 15805 kHz is probably the station on 19 m with the lowest power - and with the most simple aerial - so obviously that makes it a DX catch. It is not a signal you can rely on for regular listening - tuning in and then expecting a fine signal.

Most of the time the signal will be absent or barely audible - in the areas where the signal propagates into (Russia, Southern Europe, Northern Scandinavia, Brazil, North America - and even once in Thailand). I had imagined that that would have created more interest among DX'ers.

Right now 15805 kHz is audible in Northern Sweden http://sm2byc.ddns.net:8073/ and - and very weak in Romania http://kiwisdr.yo3iul.ro:8074/, Italy http://iw2nke.ddns.net:8073/, Iceland http://tangar.utvarp.com:8073/ and the USA http://w1nt.onthewifi.com:8073/ - but when you read this the situation may be different.

Sometimes the signal on 15805 kHz gets out quite well:

I have just purchased a new 3 element yagi for 15805 kHz, so hopefully soon there will be some improvement in signal strength :-)
