The last days are still mostly stations from South America are heard, Peru is the last days the preferred direction of the received stations. Like the last weeks the signals are overall very weak. Due to the summer QRN listening is so often not the great joy. The most beautiful reception of the last days was Radio Candarave from Tacna near the border with Bolivia and Chile.

MW Logs.

Here are my MW logs for the last few days. The transatlantic signals are very weak and can currently only be heard from South America. Some signals on 1440, 1480 and 1490 kHz are too weak to be identified, but maybe I will be able to identify them in the next few days. Radio Nacional FM, Lima on 1320 kHz is a first reception I was quite happy about.

KJJR, Montana.

My report on the visibility of the DX Test signal from KJJR, Whitefish, Montana, on 880 kHz was mentioned by Les Reyburn in the DX Test report published today, July 6, 2022. I am happy about that! Almost 65 DXers were able to detect the signal, in Europe only a few Scandinavians. Thanks to a screenshot of Bjarne Mjelde from Kongsfjord, who was able to receive the test well, I compared both spectra and merged them into one picture.

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.

In addition to these logs, the following could be heard: 1500.017 kHz – possibly Dios es Amor from Huancayo and 1590 possibly the new station Radio Checca from Cusco province. From Bolivia – LaPaz, Bendita Trinidad was heard on 1540 kHz, also a very rare guest this season.

MW-Logs May 1-7, 2022.

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.

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.
