Shortwave DX log for the afternoon of Sunday 15 October 2017

I’m unsure whether or not to classify this one a DXpedition – but maybe I should, as it was bad electrical interference at home that pushed me and my trusty Tecsun outside to Primrose Hill for a couple of enjoyable band scans. A nice bit of warm late autumn sunshine and a run capped off a good afternoon.

The increased elevation and distance from significant interference meant I got some quite distant copies, including an Australian evangelical station I’d not come across before: Reach Beyond Australia.


Logged via Tecsun PL-380 in NW London (currently UTC+1).

I’m still getting to grips with SINPO ratings and this Android app for logging; until now I’ve used a notebook and pen and rather fuzzier ratings like ‘fair but some interference’. But the app provides a decent, fast, offline schedule lookup, and the built-in logging function does 90% of what I would want it to.


Session #1 around 1145 UTC – at home in NW London. V poor signal with electrical interference.
