New stations heard from West Michigan during March, 2016 (with the exception of 1548 4QD). Antenna used is noted in the log. All dates and times UTC:
1431 Radio Sawa, Djibouti – 3/5/2016 0049-0053 UTC – Decent carrier noted several times here in past nights finally culminating with some audio on March 5th. Occasional strong peaks bursting into pop music lasting for several minutes. Parallel to a remote Perseus SDR located in the Mediterranean region that had a strong copy on Radio Sawa which provided a nice real-time comparison. 7,481 miles from my North D-KAZ antenna.
1548.01 4QD Emerald, QLD, Australia – 3/24/2016 1134 UTC – Carrier peaking to legible audio at 1134 UTC with aussie accented talk during long signal peaks but clobbered by heavy slop from 1540. Best on North D-KAZ antenna, just like last year in March at this time when 4QD was received surprisingly clear. 9,081 miles!
