A myriad of different languages all muffled, depending on your location what you hear will vary While some people a...

Korea time pips 972 @1900utc

Thanks to John for the tip, I've done it, despite the hideous noise levels here. Previous attempts with the elad failed but the rdr54d1's extra gain and superior noise rejection did the trick So far its time pips only but it's a good start Channel is dominated by club Asia and rne 1 Aerial is random...
