A.) Potential interference introduced into your DXing system (not very

I know there's one or two DX'ers on this list I've specifically encouraged
and been able to help set up with more or less this same system. I'm not
saying what you're doing is wrong but if you dont record, you should.. it
makes it much easier for stations and in some cases, believeable when they

As I discovered a while ago in a different case, during the RNZI
maintenance period they may fire up each frequency briefly even outside
its normal hours. Glenn

Indeed, this could have been RNZI. There was a brief bit of English
language audio during the initial tune up and this could very well have
been Kiwis. So, just a test or has RNZI changed their schedule? Only one
transmitter still operational?
