Hi Allen,

re your Russian language on 1521 I can tell you that the only thing I hear in RR on that frequency is China. Have you ever heard CRI before?

I will keep an eye open in the coming days to see if CRI is still on at that time. Reception can be patchy here sometimes it completely dominates the channel while others times its in the mix with England and Saudi.

Hello Everyone,

Due to the windy and colder conditions today I was unable to complete all 3 DX sessions over the weekend as planned up at Ladie's Lookout near Signal Hill, Newfoundland. However, Friday and Saturday evening offered better weather conditions and 2 sessions were completed with the logs listed below.

Stations from Spain dominated the two day affair and 2 new stations were added to the Ultralight Log

Saturday's monitoring at 20:20 UT discovered a signal on 1521 khz under the Saudi station with a woman in Russian language. Not sure if this is Urumqi in China as no other details and the time seems a bit late for it.
Also an unidentified on 1296 khz at 19:52 UT with Drumbeat music and vocals, possibly Sudan, any ideas ?
