Medium Wave Adventures


China & Taiwan, Korea, Afghanistan – “That’s my desire” [studio take by Chuck Berry; November 19, 1958]

Eventually, I couldn’t resist the siren’s songs of Christoph, OE2CRM. These consist of breathtaking audio files of some marvels he received at his unique remote receiving station.

Throughout my DX life, I had been an addict more to HF than to medium wave. But Christoph’s results made the trick to convince me also trying this band. Still slowly groping forward in this band like a white sticker, I liked even the first results a bit. Please find below a hopefully growing collection of audio clips. They were received with my loop of 20 m circumference, mostly with Wellbrook’s active head ALA100LN for these large aperture loops. Receiver is mainly Perseus or Elad’s FDM-S2. They all were received in Northern Germany. Let’s go, and don’t forget to to click the READ MORE button for – listening to much more!

  • Nils,
    Try a K9AY. A nondirectional loop is too less for the lower Bands. See my results on
    73 from Giessen, Willi

    • … I know, Willi, and your results are quite impressive; congrats! Alas, it’s a Bit difficult to set up one in the garden here … Will see how my loop will work out this season. 73 Nils

  • Hi Nils,

    vielen Dank für die tollen Aufnahmen. Das macht Lust es selbst mal zu probieren. Deine Artikel haben mir immer gut gefallen. Weiter so!

    73 aus Kaltenkirchen, Norbert / DL8LAQ
