Another very successful evening into Europe  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, April 18 2023

Once again, I was very pleased to hear many low powered European hobby
stations tonight, as well as some DRM transmissions not often heard from
Masset, BC. My 450' Beverage, aimed due north once again produced great
results! 73, Walt

CHINA 17830, 0504-, CNR Apr 18 Some copy with frequent dropouts. // 17770
with near 100% copy. (Salmaniw, Masset, BC)

DENMARK 5930, 0518-, World Music Radio Apr 18 Well, here they are with pop
music, and a lot of splatter, of course, from 5935 WWCR. Fair otherwise.I
need to check the power level again. (Salmaniw, Masset, BC)

GERMANY 5920, 0515-, HCJB Apr 18 Poor to fair reception in German. I
suspect it would have been a bit stronger earlier in the evening for me.
Not clear whether they are using 1 or 10 kW. (Salmaniw, Masset, BC)

HOLLAND 5939.97, 0521-, Radio Peipzender Apr 18 I'm not 100% certain this
is the Dutch low powered station, or actually Radio Voz Missionaria.
Perhaps the later. Non-stop vocals, and sounding rather religious, so
quite possibly the later. Fair/good except for WWCR splatter. (Salmaniw,
Masset, BC)

HOLLAND 5955, 0511-, Sunlite Radio Apr 18 Even better tonight, especially
at and just before 05:00 UTC with Adele's Skyfall, then numerous ads in
Dutch at 04:59. Really impressive for 1 kW or less!. (Salmaniw, Masset, BC)

HOLLAND 5970, 0528-, Radio 208 Apr 18 Very weak, but in the clear hear, and
seemingly // to an Icelandic KiwiSDR with EZL music. Fair amount of static
crashes. Playing a Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum. Not clear on the
power either. Overall a most productive evening!. (Salmaniw, Masset, BC)

ROMANIA 11740, 0509-, Radio Romania International Apr 18 A really powerful
signal. I'm stymied that I can quite get any audio. French is listed at
this time. Pure red on my KiwiSDR waterfall in Masset. S9 + 10 to 20 as
well! So close!. (Salmaniw, Masset, BC)

UNITED KINGDOM 5875, 0502-, BBCWS Apr 18 100% copy with BBCWS news in
English. This is rare to have such perfect copy!. (Salmaniw, Masset, BC)

Excellent reception yesterday (15 April) for both the western European directed transmission at 22:00 UTC on 9740 and 11800 kHz and the eastern North American transmission at 00:00 UTC (technically, 16 April) on 9550 and 11620 kHz here in NB. Using a Belka-DX receiver in pseudo-synchronous mode, the recorded audio was very good with minimal selective fading. These hour-long broadcasts include some music selections, including "All That Jazz" today (Saturdays). The audio was almost as good as the DRM half-hour broadcasts, which typically don't feature music. The Saturday (Sunday UTC for North America) broadcasts supposedly include DX Mailbag/Listeners Letterbox but there wasn't one on 15/16 April. Is it only once per month? According to reports I have seen, there was one on 1/2 April.
