I don’t normally listen to much on 41m, as usually during my listening periods, it’s full of CRI broadcasts. But my usual early evening fare, such as VOA on 15580, was inaudible due to the solar flare which has been hitting us today. 19m, 22m and 25m all very noisy. So I thought I would try 41m, and have been pleasantly surprised about the variety at this time of the day. The following logs are over just a half hour period, but just goes to show what can be heard, even when the K’s and A’s are high. As has been said many times, there is always something to listen to! A new one for me this evening was IBRA Radio from Armenia. I have on occasion copied TWR from there but not this one. A rather excitable young lady in the Silte (?) language along with, presumably, Armenian music. This QTH seems to enjoy a radio ‘tunnel’ to Thailand, as most stations from that area are received here very well. Very curious!
