Aussie shortwave signals continue to flourish

HF propagation into Melbourne, on our shortest day, continues to be represented by good signals from Europe, Africa, the Americas, and the Middle East during our late morning to mid afternoon periods on 6, 7, and 9 MHz.

I have included a summary of this propagation in episode 156 of the Australian DX Report audio magazine, which features news and information about shortwave broadcasting, propagation, monitoring notes, new schedules, extracts from schedules, and schedule updates.

There is also a special segment summarizing current reception here in Melbourne, of African signals in the 49 metre band, 2100 to 2300.

It's 15 minutes duration, and may be downloaded from the website of the Australian Internet Radio Service at: http://airm.edxp.org

The site allows you to listen to the ADXR and other audio features directly (streaming audio) via your MP3 player, or via the site's embedded mini-player. Podcasts, Mobile Telephone delivedry, iTunes capability, full RSS/XML/Atom feeds, and free subscriptions are supported - full details are at the site.

You can also hear the episodes on-air, via WWCR Nashville, every Sunday at 0200-0215 on 5070 and on Mondays 1145-1200 on 15825. The WWCR release is also available as streaming-audio, live, from http://wwwcr.com
Good listening to the Australian DX Report Episode No. 155!
