I’ve just learned that The Mighty KBC will broadcast The Giant Jukebox on Sunday from 00:00 – 01:00 UTC.
To be clear, that’s tonight in North America–and only four hours from time of this posting!
Frequency will be 9,925 kHz.
I’ll try to listen from here in Québec. I hope their 125,000 watts will punch through the local QRM!
KBC was weak here in Davis, CA about 70 miles NE of San Francisco. About 5,600 miles from Nauen. The signal got a little stronger after the top of the hour and started to weaken 45 minutes later. Not worth posting the recordings: mostly noise with a few words understandable. I could make out most of the songs but not pleasant listening. 106′ random wire on Hammarlund SP-600 and Sangean 909X. I’ll get armchair quality oldies later tonight from RNZI, 6,600 miles distant.
Here is a quick video. This is about as good as KBC got for me this evening.
Coming through weak, with fluttery QSB here in the SF Bay Area on The Sproutie MK II at 0010z. Would probably be better reception with a bit of carrier injection and it seems to be getting a bit stronger already. Would be keen to see how reception is near the end of the hour but, unfortunately, I have to go out to meet a friend who wants to go salsa dancing! I can’t dance, but she dances while I watch and take photos 🙂
73 for now,
Very strong signal here on the St Lawrence in Québec.
Thanks for the report, Dave.
S9+10dB into northeast Texas
Got it in South Carolina, Carrier is HUGMUGNuss 40 db over S 9 ! Playing some fifties rock
Just got a huge carrier on 9925 at about 2359 UTC.. no modulation
If propagation is poor just use one of the many SDR in western Europe. But 125 kw is tremendous power, it should blast in at less than 4000 miles path distance.
Looking forward to listening tonight
