Shortwave Radio Recordings: Rádio Nacional da Amazônia

RadioNacionalDaAmazoniaThis past weekend, Radio Nacional da Amazonia had a booming signal into North America on 11,780 kHz. I recorded their broadcast throughout the night, assuming it would eventually fade; however, it did not.

So, if you’re in the mood for some Brazilian music and commentary today, this eight-hour recording of Radio Nacional da Amazonia should satisfy.

This was recorded on Sunday, January 6th–starting around 02:30 UTC–on 11.78 MHz. Click here to download the full recording as an MP3 file (276 MB!), or listen in the embedded player below:

Note to those subscribed to our podcast:
I was a bit reluctant to include a link to the podcast feed as this file is so large; I rarely make eight-hour recordings. I did offer it up, however, based on the fact that there are so many other podcasters who regularly serve up files in excess of 250 MB. If you believe this file is too large to be included as a podcast, please comment; I certainly don’t want to choke up your bandwidth or overwhelm your iPod!  But it’s wonderful listening.

    I did some shortwave radio listening for the first time last night with a newly purchased portable. This was one of the stations I was able to pull in from my home in north-central Colorado. I enjoyed the music and look forward to hearing more Brazilian music from Radio Nacional da Amazonia in the future.

      Peter, this is a great catch and not exactly a blow-torch station. I love Radio Nacional. As winter approaches, you’ll find that the lower bands will provide more Central/South American stations.
