Just bogged down with 'stuff'. Very little time for radio. I wanted to keep myself busy though, and that's what I have been doing. Just not with radio. :(

Brazilian morning for me, but as usual with the Latins, I can't identify any. 1350 was particularly strong with announcements and 'noticias', but nothing that sounded like 'capital' or 'super' that I have heard here before. Also one on 1540 which would definitely be a new one for me, but although I hear 'radio...', I can't make it out.

Anybody still listening ? A few more interesting signals today.

I wonder if anybody got something coming above WWKB on 1520 for a short while around 0416 ? Unfortunately all I got was music with no announcements (either easy music, classics or religious - I didn't know the tracks - the main one was awful slow female warbling).

I am still recording!

I haven't been able to post for the last couple of weeks due to a computer re-install and then not being able to log into the forum for a couple of weeks.

Still receiving stations like CHIN 1540 quite regularly, but there's barely any audio from TA signals until 0100 at the very least.

I am testing new versions of Jaguar and so will still dabble over the summer months - I have never DXed MW in summer.

The noise is more of a problem recently, so I need to try to sort something out there if I can. Time to put a little plan into action.

If there is anybody recording who needs some Peruvians, Capital (1470) and (I presume) Bethel (1570) were booming in last night around 04:00. Capital with some nice IDs. There may be some more, but haven't had time to check yet.

I wonder if the Peruvian Navy have ever fought a battle ? At 04:05'48 there were pips with an announcement of "hora official peruana" from "la marina de guerra de Peru". Sorry we missed the battle, our clocks were 6 minutes slow !

I will be recording tonight. I just hope there isn't too much lightning around.

I managed to do a bit of careful re-positioning of the flag. Lifting the bass wire three feet at one end of the flag seemed to do the trick and I got the background noise down below -130 dB between 1400 - 1550. Noise levels across the rest of the band are around -120 dB. That's not too bad compared to recent weeks, so all but the very weakest of DX signals should get through now.

// Edit: Very weak Audio on 1470 and 1480 at 00:13.
