Yet a new one in the log…
Despite the fact that I was affected by a new QRM which more or less spoiled reception on frequencys above 1100 KHz yesterday evening (I will try to find the source of this new QRM tonight), I managed to get a new one in the log yesterday evening as well; AIR Najibabad, Uttar Pradesh was heard with pretty good signals on 954 KHz at 1733 UTC. I will keep looking for these Indian stations on mediumwave, since most of them have left shortwave years ago.
Most part of yesterday evening, I spent a couple of hours improving the feeding system for my two phased loops, and I found out that the best results was achived with open loops. The phasing bandwith decreased, but overall this was the favourable method. I will contunue the antenna works tonight. Maybe I will be able to find a method to phase out this new, and very annoying, QRM.
However, around midnight (local time) I turned on the SDR-IQ again, and immedeately found a HUGE signal in the waterfall on 882 KHz. Before tuning it in, I assumed that it was one of these giant (signal-strength-wise) IRIB stations, but no – It was TWR Puttalam, Sri Lanka carrying the service of TWR India! Same station as I logged the day before, but now with local strength! Fun!
Well, nothing from North America, yet, but I think I will try to get up early tomorrow morning to see if any signals are coming over the pole.
