Are any other North American shortwave listeners hearing Chinese and North Korean stations in the 19, 16, and 13 meter bands in the dead of night? I heard plenty of regional stations plus North Korea on 15180 KHZ after 4:00 UT, February 13th. China Radio International was also broadcasting in English on 17730 KHZ with a program about Chinese New Year music. Most of the signals were quite strong on my CC Skywave SSB receiver with about 4 meters of random wire for an antenna..
Since nobody else I know knows as much as you and your blog readers, I’d like to ask you and them about this question.
Thank you for sharing your experience and question with us, Bruce. Lately, I’ve had very little in the way of late-night listening sessions so really can’t comment. With that said, I love openings like this. It’s amazing to be on a band that is dead quiet, yet have DX stations pop up from nowhere.
SWLing Post readers: Please comment if you, like Bruce, have been enjoying some late night, high band DX!
