Glad to be of help.

WHTK is listed with 5kW day and night, but I am guessing that the antenna patter is different at night and they were probably using their daytime pattern. Other than that, it was super rare with only two previous loggings in the north-west of Scotland.

I tried for the FL station on 1570 but my beverage wire had snapped that morning and 1570 was drowned in splatter. After repairing, 1570 returned to the usual French Canadian.

No recording this morning as I was back at home briefly, collecting more radio gear! The beverage will come down in a week or two and I'll put up a temporary flag to test, probably double sized. Before that happens, I want to try reversing the beverage and point to Africa. Wonder if I will.

Ken, I've been puzzling over the 1570 station. Is this an ID at 05:44 ? It's the only speech that I have found/
