Default 171KHZ / Morocco very strong tonight

Starting at 0100 GMT - I could hear Morocco on 171 KHZ long wave with good usable audio tonight (in AM mode) much stronger than any other recent time here in Florida.

Usually I check their frequency in SSB mode and get a carrier - zero beat and listen for any audio - usually very weak or non-existent but tonight there a easily listenable in AM mode.

By 0200 Zulu they were even stronger and armchair copy - in nearly 50 years to listening on the bands this is the best LW opening I've ever personally heard - if you have a LW radio - I hope you check it out!

0227 starting to fade - hope it's just temporary - will keep listening...

Default North Africa on Longwave

I'm also in Florida and both Algeria on 252 kHz and Medi 1 on 171 kHz were coming in well last week. I've been too busy lately but now I'm on vacation for a bit so I'll see how things are holding up.

Here's an iPhone video I made of Medi 1. Never heard longwave broadcast stations from across the Atlantic before last week. Hope conditions hold up this winter.

Great catches, have to see if any are coming into the East Coast. LF is an interesting band.

Have been hearing a few hams in QSO using CW around 472 kHz, mostly W4's.
