After a couple of weeks of not having time to fit in some listening, I managed some time today. I started off with the 25m band and the highlight of this was R. Australia. As can be seen from the SINPO rating, it was booming in to the UK this afternoon. Just a shame I missed the Bill Bryson interview as I have read most of his very amusing books. It was also good to hear R. Japan as I haven’t been able to pick them up for a while. It was also interesting listening to a football match, which was being played in the UK, but received from the BBC via Madagascar!
Next was the 31m band and a couple stations from Africa, V.O. Africa from Sudan being a new one for the log. Listening to this particular station, my Datong FL1 filter proved useful, as switching the Notch filter in removed some of the interference from TWR.
