I don’t often do much listening on the 41m, as a lot of frequencies are used by either CRI with their blow-torch signal, or the various flavours of CNR, which are the regional Chinese stations. Add to this Firedrake/CRI jammer jamming VOA, RFE and RFA broadcasts among others, it doesn’t leave much room for anything else. But with a bit of digging, and at times, switching to LSB to enable narrow filtering and use of Notch filters, other stations pop out of the noise.
This afternoon I decided to have a tune of the 41m band and found a surprising number of interesting stations. Yes, CRI caused some major ACI at times, but digging out the other stations is all part of the fun and skill of Shortwave! With the DSP filtering on the 450D, it is possible to do this reasonably easily.
And so to the logs:
