How good SW might sound like...

If you ever wanted a good example of how excellent music on shortwave can sound,
you are advised to turn on RFE/RL's farsi language programme "Radio Farda" on 12005 kHz.

This is probably the best audio signal (and also the best propagation) I have ever heard on SW.
Good old Woofferton tx :)

This transmitter seems to suffer from severe feeder interruption and goes off for seconds. Your chance now to catch a clear aud...

Re: 819 unid mixing with Egypt

Hint: DPRK (North Korea) does now give any ID with time signal at the top of the hour as the South does, since switching back from their un-even time zone (it's again +8 hours UK time). While IROI is stil at half an hour (+3,5 UK time) and does ID themself at :30 with a very special gong interval si...

Re: First MW DX of the season -CRI 1521kHz

Indeed, I have recognized the great 1521 signal on the 4th of September until the switch-off around 2000 UTC. They have been airing their traditional fill-up music for about 6 minutes after their Russiang language program. I thought, during winter season they broadcast longer with another repetition...

Yes, 31/08 was indeed good over here in GER. As well as yesterday (02/09) had good propagation towards SE Asia / China. Remember, that DPRK (KRE) is now back again on South Korean time (invented by the Japanese) means +8 instead of +8.5 hours (+9 at the moment because Koreans don't switch over to su...

Re: A long shot - French speakers needed please

correct. Mouv (before: le mouv) is not Rhythmic CHR but Urban Contemporary with Indie / Alternative ans electopop as well. Bands like Indochine, Télépopmusik or Starsailor are constantly aired but they are no hip hop at all.
