African medium wave: SRTC Al-Barnameg al-Aam, the state broadcaster from Sudan can also be heard in Salzburg via the Khartoum/Soba station at about 18.15 UT on 765 kHz. Caution, Saudi Arabia also broadcasts in Arabic here.

A visible note for outdoor antenna users: Use CMCCs! These Common-mode current choke are absolutely worth their money, especially with longer coax feed lines in receive mode. As an example here is a screen of the Solomon Islands on 5020 kHz at my Asia Beverage, to see and hear the signal from the Pacific Ocean only with S3/S5, but the noise floor below (!) – 140 dBm makes listening possible. I use CMCCs from remoteqth.com and Bonito.
QSL: Myanma, 594 kHz.
Southeast Asia! Myanma Radio from Naypyidaw confirmed today the mediumwave reception of the broadcast on 594 kHz with his QSL card. After many attempts in autumn last year, I was able to listen to the local morning broadcast from the “Republic of the Union of Myanmar” in mid-October around 23.25 UT here in Salzburg. Very happy about that QSL.
QSL: KRND, Wyoming.
In November I was able to hear a new US state in the mediumwave band with my Beverage Array, which is very rare in central Europe: KRND – Jota Mexicana from Cheyenne in Wyoming could be heard on the X-Band frequency 1630 kHz at 05:00 UT with Mexican music and several station announcements in Salzburg. After many attempts I managed to get an answer from the station and thus to have confirmed my 40th US state on mediumwave.
