…and the A-index raised…
Seems that conditions are quite unstable right now. Yesterday evening the A-index raised to 24 and the mediumwave band was very quiet. Signal-wise, that is. Not QRM-wise, unfortunately. I was monitoring 1548 KHz between 1700-1815 UTC in hope for ABC Emerald to show up, but nothing from Australia this evening. Instead, Deutsche Welle / Trinconmalee, Sri Lanka was the dominant station on the frequency with programming in german until 1800 UTC. Co-channel Radio Sawa was surprinsingly weak the whole evening. Well, we’ll see what happens with the band tonight… If nothing interesting is to be heard, I will continue my “file work” and upload a few more audio-recordings.
Just ordered a bunch of clip-on ferrites. Going to make a really serious effort to cancel all noise/EMC when I’m coming back here again in October.
