ALBANIA, China Radio International on 1458 KHz (1457.575) with a nice ID. Now listen to the very nice Interval signal of Radio Tirana.

ARMENIA, Voice of Russia at 1377 KHz. Normally France is so dominant that I'm not used to pay attention at this channel. It was a pleasant surprise to hear VOR Interval signal during a France Info weakness.

ESTONIA, Tartu Family Radio at 1035 KHz with Russian talk. Not an easy one here due to strong QRM.

FAROE ISLANDS, Kringvarp Føroya on 531 KHz. Music then TOH signal and probably newscast in Faroese.

IRELAND on LW at 252 KHz with ID "...RTE Radio One". Caught at transmitter sunrise hour. Signal strength was stronger than usual killing all surrounding NDBs.

There was that button on their web site "Email to the studio" what I did. I was just asking for an "Hi" and hoping that when the DJ will mention that I'm listening from Canada on 1395, unfortunately, when this happened, I was still recording but the reception was too poor. No such luck this time. After being off for some time, Big L is back on air. Here's another clip from that same station with ID followed by German song "Weil ich ein Mädchen bin". Thanks Jürgen Bartels for the song's info. Listen here to my best reception of the station so far.

ROMANIA, România Actualitati on 855 KHz. Not an easy one since Spain usually live there. Another problem is how 855 gets splattered here. Fortunately, this time signal level was good enough to break through in a good way.

ROMANIA, România Actualitati on 1404 KHz coming in nicely.

ROMANIA, SRR Radio România Actualitati on 1458 Khz from Constanţa. Thanks to Mauno Ritola at RealDX for ID. Here it is again mixing with UK.

SWITZERLAND, Radio Suisse Romande - Option Musique at 765 KHz. An early August catch. Radio was set on AM  and I had a very nice signal with very few QRM which normally prevail.

The mediumwave service of Option Musique aired its last program on December 5th of 2010 at 23:00 UTC. Then, a loop message was played until December 31st inviting listeners to syntonise from now on their FM broadcast. The transmitter was shut down definitely at 23:00 UTC. Karel Honzik kindly sent me recordings of each of those historical moments as he heard in the Czech Republic. First, the last minute of programming and second, transmitter shut down right on cue.

TURKEY, TRT 1-Radyo Bir, Antalya on 891 KHz (11-15-2016 4:32 UTC).

For about a week around Christmas of 2008, I had daily reception of this station. Ukrainian DXer Slava Loginov came across my website and kindly sent me photos of the 972 and 1431 KHz Ukrainian Radio site near Nikolaev. Check that one.
