2x Bolivia!

Two more nice logs: This time Bolivia, Radio Bendita Trinidad from La Paz was heard on 1540 kHz on May 12, 2022, another signal from Radio Bendita Trinidad from Cochabamba was also heard on 1480 kHz in Salzburg the same day around 03.20 UT. Thanks to Thomas Nilsson for his log!

MW-Logs: Peru.

On 8 May 2022, excellent signals from Peru could be heard in Salzburg at sunrise. One of the rare band openings this spring that brought well audible medium wave signals.

Here are my logs from the last few days. Large signals are currently not offered in the medium wave band, transatlantic reception is limited to a short window at sunrise around 0330 UT. The signals are almost exclusively from South America, the signal strengths are rather low.

Worth mentioning is the Peru reception of Radio Onda Cero from Lima on 1160 kHz and RPP Noticias from Pilcomayo on 1140.25 kHz, this signal I could only identify by the identical very weak RPP programme on 1430 kHz from Cusco.

MW-Logs, April 5, 2022

This morning “thin” but nice signals on my K9AY antenna. Outstanding: Radio Municipal La Voz del Campesino, from Ayabaca, the capital of the province of Ayabaca and the district of the same name in the northeast of the Piura region, situated at over 2,700 metres.

QSL-Infos.

In the last two weeks, 8 DXers, all from Central Europe, have written to me asking for some mostly rare “QSL address”. I tried to answer them all, despite my accident. Not one of them found it worth the trouble to thank me. I spend a lot of time getting short replies from stations, they are just nice souvenirs that add value to my DX receptions for myself. In future, however, I will no longer answer any queries from DXers.

Asia on Mediumwave!

As I continue to be plagued with interference on my USA antenna, I have been visiting Asia for the last few days. The propagation is very different, on some days at fade/in around 15.00 UT almost nothing can be heard from the East, but on some days excellent signals from Asia, like on 21 January 2022.

It is remarkable that the US station Ashna from Afghanistan can still be heard on 1296 kHz. Nice receptions also from Pakistan with stations from Faqirabad, Multan, Peshawar and Bahawalpur. And China is always good for a surprise with its small stations in Xinjiang but also on 1539 kHz with the CNR programme via the transmitter in Golmud on the Lhasa railway.
