Dan catches the Bhutan Broadcasting Service

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dan Robinson, who discovered that the Bhutan Broadcasting Service was on the air Friday with an uncharacteristically strong signal into Europe. Dan made the following screencast of his reception using the University Twente WebSDR on August 31, 2018 on 6,035 kHz starting around 2024 UTC:

Many thanks for sharing, Dan! I hope to hear them on the air again soon.

    Thanks for the screencast of this exotic station, Dan! BBS would make a good target for my next DXpedition to the Oregon coast. I see that their current schedule includes the 1200-1400 UTC time frame; that would work for possible reception.

    Since first word of Bhutan being heard at stronger levels emerged, via HF Underground, many others have heard it. It was audible literally all day on Saturday September 1st from morning eastern U.S. time well past 8 PM EDT. This is quite extraordinary . . . and one would hope that if the schedule remains the same, and we get somewhat improved conditions and sunlight changes in the new DX season, this might be audible using non-SDR radios.
