In that section, along with "real" curiosities, you'll also find just good radio moments from various parts of the world not always with ID's, but just for radio pleasure. After all, we should all agree that radio... is radio.
Many of the following MP3 files are labelled with station details, UTC time and date of recording. Please make sure that your player is set to show this information. Also note that several stations listed bellow may have left the air since.
ALGERIA AND IRELAND, with both presumably on night power at 750 and 60 KW respectively. ALG dominates the frequency with a massive signal against I would say, a good performance from IRL nonetheless. NEW.
CANADA, CHLN 550, Trois-
COLOMBIA + CUBA + USA on 770 KHz during 2006 mid-
CUBA OVER WABC at 770 KHz. Interesting again here how strong Radio Rebelde is over WABC and how rapidly it fades under the New York station ending the clip.
ON NOVEMBER 24TH OF 2007,
..These days, the K index is not so favourable here for TAs neither for Latin Americans except around mid-
There is no treatment with phaser on these catches. All was done with the bidirectional 110 meters NE-
Listen to this other recording this time from April 7th 2010 where TWR wins again.
GERMANY, DCF77 Time signal. On longwave (VLF?) at 77,5 KHz. Jürgen Bartels invited me to give a try on that channel. At my very lucky first time, this is what I've heard. I started on 77 KHz USB then "zero beat" to 77,5 KHz and went back at 77 KHz. Here, another clip from September of 2008 with Perseus in CW and summer African 88° beverage.
GERMANY + ALGERIA, on 1422 Khz with an interesting mix of DLF and Radio Coran. This is amazing to hear how each station program are combining in a great signal strenght exchange. Here’s another example how both station are received at equal strenght while exchanging roles.
IRAN, Voice of the Islamic Republic of Iran at 7235 KHz. I decided to add it here in DX curiosities just for the ID "Voice of justice". In my opinion, you could easily compare this station with a couple of those US shortwave religious content oriented radios.
IRAN, IRIB World Service in Arabic on 1080 KHz exchanging seats with semi-
IRAN, Radio Iran / Iran jammer / UAE Radio Farda nicely mixed on 1575 KHz by Mother Nature. Iteresting to hear the Iranian jammer (11-
IRELAND, Shannon Airport Volmet at 8957 KHz announcing the arrival of a volcanic ash cloud. Now, we all know the whole story of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull Volcano causing that enormous flight chaos especially in Europe for weeks in the Spring of 2010. The clip was recorded in Germany by Olaf C.Haenssler; Thanks Olaf!
KUWAIT & MOLDOVA at 1548 KHz with an interesting fight between Radio Sawa and Voice of Russia.
LIBYA, on 1449 KHz now Voice of Free Libya with a special program aired shortly after Kadhafi’s death. You can feel the high level of enthusiasm by the speaker voice.
MOROCCO, Radio Méditerranée International on longwave 171 KHz. This one is heard with regularity here generally with good strength but not as good as this. I found interesting that right after an Arabic speaker, there was that energic "Western" pop song. I guess that in certain Islamic countries as Morocco it is easily accepted. However, it does sound odd to me. I may be too ignorant though...
ROMANIA on longwave at 153 KHz. Quite a seldom catch here. So here's a version with folk music. This a larger version of the clip found on the European dx files page.
SWEDEN & ROMANIA at 1179 KHz. Sweden was weaker than usual. Listen how Romania took advantage mixing in strong.
TURKEY (probable), when signing off around 23:05 UTC as stated (EMWG). I rarely notice a carrier on 180 KHz but for a few nights, in December of 2007, something showed up. The radio was set at 179,98 KHz to perceive something. You can hear in QRM background 183 KHz, Europe 1. I've logged this station much better with fair audio on September 2008. See bellow and at the European Audio Files page
TURKEY (most likely), 180 KHz. This time with audio. Longwave was strong on that late August night even with the African Beverage only as a TA antenna. Have a look at the Perseus window showing clearly a carrier on that frequency.
UNITED KINGDOM -
UNITED ARAB EMIRATES + IRAN, battling here on 1575 Khz during a massive opening on Halloween night of 2012 where 17 Iranian stations were logged here at my QTH.
VENEZUELA, YVMN Radio Coro, 780 KHz. At mid-
