Shortwave Receptions

Received today on shortwave:
  • R. Exterior de España, 3350 kHz, at 0425 UTC in Spanish with poor signal. A rare reception of a station on the 90 metre broadcast band. No ID heard but I've logged REE here before, and it's the only station on this frequency, except for one in North Korea. 100 kW. 
  • Radio Netherlands, 11615 kHz at 2010 UTC in English from Kigali, Rwanda relay station. Good solid signal. To Africa, with show "Africa in Progress". 250 kW.
  • BSKSA, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on 11820 kHz at 2012 UTC with fair signal. Tentative because no ID heard, but I've logged BSKSA here before, and it operates at 500 kW and is scheduled on at this time, so I think the ID is likely. No talk heard, just Arabic music.
  • Adventist World Radio, 11755 kHz, at 2014 UTC from relay station at Meyerton, South Africa in French with fair signal. Another tentative one, as no ID heard. AWR is scheduled on here at this time in French, and the announcer was speaking French with an African accent.
