IRAN, at 1503 KHz IRIB 1. I was stunned to hear it with such great signal. The S-AM of the Perseus also did a good job recovering audio quality. There was a steady fluttering on both AM and SSB mode. Thanks to the guys from RealDX for helping in ID. Great piano music followed by a low pitch man voice in Farsi - Here's another clip of the same station with Farsi talk - Now some woman talk with a quite good strength.

IRAN, IRIB 1 at 936 KHz. One of my great Iranian catch since the station is listed a 50 Kw. Thanks to Mauricio Molano and Dmitry Mezin on the RealDX list for language ID - Now listen to the following and also to this. Those are certainly so far, the best reception of Iran I ever had - Again, listen to this recording with chimes and full ID. With time, this frequency has certainly become some kind of beacon for Iran. Furthermore, the channel is extremely quiet here at my QTH - I couldn’t resist to add another sample from late September of 2013.

IRAN, Radio Iran on 1584 KHz with chant.

IRAN, IRIB 1 at 972 KHz with Farsi talk. This was recorded on February 22nd 2011 so Libya might have been off allowing Iran to sneak in.

IRAN, IRIB 1 on 666 KHz with man talk in Farsi quite fair here.

IRAN, IRIB WS on 702 KHz with Russian talk about Iran’s nuclear program. Tnx to Mike Shcherbakov for helping ID here. Funny that I was messing this one with Slovakia, overlooking Iran in Russian.

IRAN, IRIB on 945 KHz sneaking in nicely over France with YL comment + National Anthem.

IRAN, Radio Iran, Zabol at 1557.026 KHz (11-13-2016 22:01 UTC) Now that France have left the channel, I had the great surprise while digging out a wideband recording, to hear this 50 Kw station located near the Afghan border. Distance 10,150 km / 6305 mi. See its propagation path here.

ISRAEL, Reshet Bet at 657 KHz with a man in Hebrew. Thanks to Vlad and Jari at RealDX.

ISRAEL, Galai Zahal on 945 KHz from Tel Aviv. At least something to cheer about during this lackluster 2014-2015 DX season. It could pop up thanks to the recent departure of France from this channel. At one time during that same period, I could see up to eight carriers on 945!

JORDAN, 1494 KHz Jordan Radio with ID after time pips. Thanks to Henrik Klemetz for the hint.

OMAN, BBC World Service on 1413 KHz. I was stunned when I heard this station (at the end of May 2008) and it remained steady for about an half hour! I could hear a parallel on 7165 Khz - Now heard about fifteen minutes later, I couldn't resist in sharing this nice musical moment. At this particular period of the year and at this particular time, it happen that both transmitting and receiving antennas are around twilight, giving a propagation boost. According to WRTH and EMWG, that was a program in Dari language - Finally, another shot ten years later that worth mention, here with English program and BBC mentions. Heard on Christmas eve 2018 NEW.

OMAN, Radio Sultanate of Oman on 1278 KHz. That was a great surprise to hear something slightly different from what I’m used to hear coming from the Middle-East. This was during the transmitter dawn enhancement. Thanks to Tarek Zeidan for helping discard Egypt which leaves only Oman as the sole Arabic speaking station on that channel.

QATAR, QRTC Arabic from Al Arish at 954 KHz. Aparrently re-transmitting Al Jazeera TV at this hour. Thanks to Mauno Ritola and Dmitry Mezin at Realdx for their help. The woman voice in Arabic is mixing over Czech Repubic CR6 station.

SAUDI ARABIA, BSKSA on 1521 KHz. No surprise with his 2000 Kw that we hear it which such regularity - In the following clip, listen how those 2 Mw can serve well. One of my favorite clip - Added here is another great reception of the Saudi monster.

SAUDI ARABIA, BSKSA 1st program on 1071 KHz. Mixing with Iran here, a vey nice surprise for that 50 Kw from Bisha on a great opening to Middle-East in 09/2013. Under the same conditions, Syria usually lives there.

SAUDI ARABIA, BSKSA Idha'atu-i Jeddah on 1089 KHz from Qurayyat. A nice surprise in early December of 2013. The usuaally strong TalkSport was literally left behind at some moments by the 100 Kw Saudi station. Thanks to Tarek Zeidan for ID’ing the accent.

Now the following caught me by surprise because of lackloster conditions prevailing during these months. The Saudi station is heard here alone with no TalkSport at all (12-29-2015  2:02).

SAUDI ARABIA, BSKSA 1st program on 1449 KHz with a nice surprise during the same period as the log above. Its content was parallel with 1521.
