Logs for 26th May

Listening has had to take a back seat these last couple of weeks due to work and garden commitments. We have had a spate of fine weather so catching up on jobs in the garden after work has taken precedent. Longer evenings help! Tonight I managed to find some time and logged the following:


6130 Khz Swaziland TWR 19:10 UTC Barely audible under noise, but occasional improvement reveals male announcer plus african-style music. Assuming TWR as only station on 6130 at this time. Unknown language but sounds like one of the African languages. Signal a little better at 19:20  (22222). Language sounds like a switch to Portugese which would confirm TWR. SINPO: 21122 2014-05-26

7250 Khz Bangladesh Bangladesh Betar 19:50 UTC English. Male announcer but difficult to define broadcast content as too much interference from CRI on 7255. SINPO: 33333 2014-05-26

7275 Khz South Korea KBS 20:38 UTC English. Female announcer with news. Jingles followed by further news. Heavy ACI from CNR SINPO: 33333 2014-05-26

7325 Khz Sao Tome VOA 20:46 UTC Hausa. Male announcer. Jingles followed by announcement in English of Real Madrid’s victory in football, then back to Hausa. Interspersed with commentary in English from the match. Sao Tome relay. SINPO: 43344 2014-05-26

7585 Khz Sri Lanka R. Farda 20:53 UTC Pop music. ID at 20:55 .Iranwilla relay SINPO: 43333 2014-05-26

6050 Khz Tibet PBS Xizang 21:02 UTC Chinese Pop music. Lhasa relay. Lot of QSB SINPO: 33333 2014-05-26

With TWR in Swaziland, that’s a new country. That gives me a grand total of 76 since my time back listening on the broadcast bands (18 months). Logging Africa is getting better, its South America that eludes me. I am hoping over the next few weeks to get a new set of ladders and put up a longer antenna. i will keep you posted
