Carlos’ Shortwave Art and Recording of Okinawa Fishery Radio

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor and noted political cartoonist, Carlos Latuff, who shares yet another example of his radio log art, this time for Okinawa Fishery Radio. Carlos notes:

Okinawa Fishery Radio Station, Okinawa, #Japan, 8761 kHz (USB), broadcasting weather reports and navigation alerts to Japanese fishing boats.

Heard in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Feb 9, 2022, 08h59 (UTC).

    Incredibly cool! According to Google Maps, the distance from Porto Alegre, Brazil, to Okinawa Japan is 19,554 km or 12,150 miles. That’s a WOW!

    Heck, I might even be able to hear this. The distance from my QTH in SW Ohio (US) to Okinawa is 11,989 km or 7450 miles. I’ll have to get up early though, 0900 UTC for me is 4:00 am EST.
