This week's theme is Long Wave DXing. Long wave signals usually do not travel very far, even at night, so I am quite pleased with both of these catches, particularly with Antena Satelor, whose transmitter is five times less powerful than Jedynka's whilst being almost twice as far.

Polskie Radio Jedynka: December 25, 2013



Polskie Radio Jedynka recorded in London, UK on December 25, 2013 at 0004 UTC on the frequency of 225 kHz using a Lowe HF-150 radio with a Lowe PR-150 preselector and a Wellbrook ALA1530S+ antenna (positioned indoors). The transmitter is located in Solec Kujawski, Poland and has a power rating of 1000 kW. This is a local service targeted at the domestic audience. The recording is of the Polish Christmas service that was broadcast nationally.
