Thanks David - I can see the carrier, which is stronger than ESPN 1520, but splatter from 1602 means it's impossible to hear it. And I am using LSB with <2 kHz bandwidth. ESPN 1520 is audible. I've also got snatches of Bloomberg Radio on 1130 with sufficient to identify it. On 1560 I'm getting harmony singing which is probably Family Radio. There were quite few other carriers from across the pond as well.

In the late evening of the 9th CRI on 1521 was coming through quite nicely and I had "Chinese" on 1098.

My main issue is horrendous interference in the form of a saw-tooth wave form with a repetition interval of around 62.5 KHz - this is some 30 dB above the noise floor. I can knock a few dB of it by changing the loop direction. It started on the 7th Sept. It can be there many hours - but has, so far, been absent in the early hours of the morning. It vanished just in time for the Far East reception on the 9th, but blotted it out on the 8th.

Thanks for the tip David, would have been nice to get, but unfortunately, some idiot who has 14TB of hdd in his PC and countless others in a couple of NAS' allowed his primary AND secondary overnight recording discs to get full !

My primary became full too, if that's any consolation. Some very interesting conditions too with lots of decent signals. I need to conduct a band-wide Extended Scan around 0500.
