Cambodia, 918 kHz.

Radio National Kampuchea can sometimes be heard from the station in Phnom Penh – Kandal Stueng after 22.00 UT under interference on the mediumwave 918 kHz. September 21, the station announcement at 21.58 UT at the beginning of the transmission was easy to follow here in Salzburg. WinRadio G33 Excaibur PRO/CSO, 100 mt. Beverage.

Polish balloon experiment on 14.2 kHz

The operator of the Polish balloon experiment on 14.2 kHz on September 12, 2020 replied today to the screenshot of my reception experiment. As Tomasz A. Miś from the Babice Transatlantic Radio Station explained, the radiation pattern of the antenna changed due to the changing distance between the radiator and the conducting plane, furthermore the gain in height also played a big role for reception – at the moment it looks very promising and yes, that is most likely the balloon. Again a nice example of how we amateurs with our limited possibilities today can receive and display even the smallest signals. The proHFT KNA-6DX Whip antenna has once again excelled itself.

World Music Radio

World Music Radio is asking its listeners for support – and for this, a donation of 25 Euros or more will get you a real WMR mousepad. (And maybe a nice pennant) World Music Radio (WMR) broadcasts on 5840 and 15805 kHz since 2018. Soon it will be broadcast on 927 kHz. And Radio208 has been broadcasting on 1440 kHz since December 2019 and on shortwave 5805 kHz since May 2020. It took a lot of time, energy and money – but it was and still is great fun to keep the short and medium wave alive.The costs for the transmitters (around 15,000 euros), the antennas and the transmitter locations are one thing. Another thing are the running costs. The two big expenses are:
Royalties for music: 450 Euro per month
Electricity costs: 1.300 Euro per month
If you could help to keep WMR and Radio208 on air, we would be very grateful for your support. All contributions are welcome. For more information, contact Stig Hartvig Nielsen – shn “at” wmr.dk

All in all very summery, a nice opening to Argentina, today a little bit USA, but actually too much QRM.
