Lots of carriers and more

In this neck of the woods Friday evening, there were more carriers than usual on the LW and the non-standard (USA/Canadian) 9-kc MW channels.

đŸ“¶   162 – Allouis, France, IPHA data, strong steady signal

đŸ“¶   183 – Sauberg, Germany, with a weak carrier

đŸ“¶   198 – BBC Radio 4, with very good audio

đŸ“¶   207 – Iceland or Morocco, with a weak carrier

đŸ“¶   252 – Radio Algerienne, Tipaza, Algeria, with varying audio, music was better than voice but the language barrier probably had something to do with my ear's interpretation of the audio

đŸ“¶   585 – Unknown station with a solid carrier

đŸ“¶   684 – Unknown station with a solid carrier and very weak, unintelligible audio

đŸ“¶   855 – Unknown station with a solid carrier

Saturday evening was similar, but with some differences in the line-up and no 9-kc channel carriers.

đŸ“¶   162 – Allouis, France, IPHA data, strong steady signal

đŸ“¶   183 – Sauberg, Germany, solid carrier but poor unintelligible audio

đŸ“¶   189 – Rikisutvarpid Ras 1+2 in Iceland, solid carrier, no audio

đŸ“¶   198 – BBC Radio 4, solid carrier, no audio

đŸ“¶   216 – Radio Monte Carlo in France, solid carrier, poor audio

đŸ“¶   252 – Solid carrier, poor or no audio

Equipment used was the ELAD FDM-S2/SW2 and an 80-meter inverted Vee antenna.
