I decided to concentrate on the 49m band this evening for my listening. Quite a noisy band and seems to suffer more than most from local QRM. However, with the a Datong FL1 filter connected to my Tecsun PL-600, this cuts out a lot of the noise to make listening that much more pleasant and less fatiguing. Although the FL1 is in excess of 30 years old, it still does a good job of digging out signals from the QRM. It is better suited to SSB and CW signal resolving rather than AM, but it is still effective.
Europa 24 was a new one I haven’t logged before. Seems to be just a music station with the likes of Elton John, Bee Gees etc. I shall have to listen further to see if this is the only format of the station.
