Cuba 770 Update  View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 19 2017

Well, Mark, your one report on BCB has kept me really busy this trip to Burnt
River. No surefire ID yet but I know the station is Cuban so by default...
anyhow, still working thru clips. Really appreciate that post!

Thanks Mauno for that updated info. Both MWLIST & WRTH 2016 are still
listing 2000 Kw though. Maybe the WRTH 2017, which I'm waiting for my
copy to arrive, has the updated information?

Backing up Marc on his observation, I also feel that since those
changes, the overall reception of 183 Europe1 has declined on this side
of the pond.

But since 2015 they should have the same 2x750 kW Transradio system as
on 234 kHz in Luxembourg, so it should be 1500 kW, if both are in use
all the time.

Hi Marc,

About the 183 frequency, I know that a couple of years ago, the top
one of their four towers collapsed so they have to re-arrange the
antenna array. Based on this article (in German, use a translator)
http://www.saar-nostalgie.de/Europe1Unfall.htm , the power has also
been lowered to 1000 Kw along with a new tower arrangement.

Same result here with a signal decline since then.

Germany-183 (always in French!) was the most reliable here for over
10 years. But, in the last year or so, their signal has seriously
declined. Does anyone know why?

In general, this has been the worst year for LWBC since I began
monitoring it in 2002. Former reliable regulars like Poland-225 and
Luxembourg-234 have been rare. Czech Republic-270 not heard this
season.

The most reliable this year have been Morocco-171 and Iceland-189
and neither of them have been consistently strong.

I hope next year is better as I enjoy LWBC DX!

Best LWBC conditions in quite awhile; storm static low too for a nice
change. All first noted 0230 utc.

171 Morocco poor

189 Iceland poor

198 BBC very poor

252 Algeria poor/weak
