Some low band logging from 7th October 2014

I decided to hit the low bands this evening as a change from monitoring 31m/25m. Mainly European stations, but V.O. Armenia was a new one for the log. VOA from Botswana had it’s usual great eclectic mix of African music, just a shame conditions meant the signal wasn’t too good. Still, it’s good to see there is plenty to listen to out there. I am still trying to catch the elusive Latin American stations but with no luck as yet.
