Today's Receptions on Shortwave

Did a bit of listening today on shortwave and here's what I caught. The receiver was the JRC NRD-525 attached to the 20 metre amateur band mobile whip. Not an ideal match but it worked well enough:
  • WRMI, 15770 kHz, Okeechobee  FL USA, at 1945-1952 UTC with fair to good signal. Overcomer Ministry religious program hosted by Brother Stair.
  • Voice of America, 15580 kHz, from Selebi-Phikwe, Botswana relay transmitter site at 1955-2000 UTC. In English. ID at top of hour and then into program "Music Time in Africa". Fair signal.
  • WEWN, Vandiver AL USA, at 2000-2005 UTC on 15610 kHz. Good signal. In English. EWTN Catholic radio.
  • Voice of America, 15730 kHz, from Greenville NC USA, in French with good signal.
  • WWCR, 15825 kHz, Nashville TN USA, at 2010 UTC with good signal. English. Christian preaching.
