Re: Newfoundland Ultralight Radio Trans-Atlantics & Domestics Report April 8 - 9

Great DX list with plenty of new stations.

It's handy having English news on 1134-CROATIA. Even here with a perfect signal, it's nearly impossible to ID in the native language !

Keep listening to '702-Unidentified- French talk' It's most likely to be Monaco.

It took me a while to positively ID the Monaco transmission only last week. Chinese Radio International transmit at various times from this site, in french, but listen to the 'french with chinese accent' and snippets of Chinese music whilst waiting for the CRI identification !

Good Dx

Hello To All,

Trans-Atlantic propagation was once again at it's peak here in Bristol's Hope as many of the audible signals had tremendous strength. It is amazing how a short distance move to a more remote location can make such a difference. For lack of repetition we have included some of the most outstanding signals last evening. The usual Saudi station on 1521 and others commonly heard here not mentioned, also had very good signal strength. Six new stations were added to our ULR logs. There are a number of unidentified stations also throughout the logs listed.
