There’s been a few DX tests this season, and rather by coincidence I stumbled upon another one the other day. The IRCA and MW Circle reflectors reported that Mittelwellen-Sender Joe, transmitting from Erlangen in Germany on 1485 kHz, was sending periodic 1000-Hz tones – one second on, one second off.
Now, that sounded like a nice challenge. The first evening I tested I heard the transmission right away at the KONG HQ, and a very good signal at Smøla. DX-ers in Scotland and Ireland also reported the signal. The initial enthusiasm faded a bit when I later learned that the effect was in fact 100 watts, not 6.

Backyard AM from Zaandam has already handed in the LPAM frequency 1395 kHz and will return to 1116 kHz this weekend.
NOAA forecasters say there is a chance of minor (G1-class) geomagnetic storms on Jan. 6th when a double CME likely strikes Earth’s magnetic field. The impact could spark the first significant Arctic auroras of the New Year.

Syrian radio seems like off air since weeks on 783 kHz. I hear only the spanish, and a persian station underneath it. No trace of the Syrian signal. Usually it dominates the frequency over the Spanish in Hungary.
