Hi there, I thought some of the readers of SWLing post might be interested in my reception of Mayanmar Radio, Yangon, during a late-night DX’pedition in Oxfordshire, UK. I managed to catch them on 5985 and 7200 kHz; the latter was a personal first and perhaps further confirmation that my 200 metre longwire is contributing in a positive way to my mobile listening post. Subscribers and regular visitors to Oxford Shortwave Log on YouTube will know that I am forever trying to push the performance of my vintage portables to the limit of what’s possible, in the hope that I might hear something very exotic. it’s happened once or twice and thus worth all the effort in the small hours. Thanks for watching/ listening.

Thank you very much Dean. There are bigger gains to be had by simply DXing somewhere quiet than purchasing the more expensive/ sophisticated receiver you can afford. It’s a lot of fun too!
I enjoy very much reading your posts about your extraordinary listening conditions in rural Oxfordshire. Your robust antenna in an RF-quite location is truly paying off with excellent weak-signal results, as demonstrated in your video series. I am certain this will inspire others who are plagued with high levels of man-made noise to go on occasional trips to the countryside with trusty portables and experiment with antennas, as you have.
Keep on sharing your results!
