Hi all.....OK it wasn't 136kHz.... it was a Low Power MW BC transmission (1
watt EIRP to a 10m aerial) so the frequency was maybe a decade higher.
Against that the station was running AM and the signal was decoded and
recorded and extract from 3 songs, and a 'real audio' clip provided and
confirmed. The station was also on the East Coast of England,
Frinton-on-sea. This is reported on page 77 of the current Radcom, in George
Dobbs'  QRP page. I will check with Steve Whitt who is a MW enthusiast, and
an ex collegue of mine at BT, to see if I can find the time of the logging,
the date is given as 4th August 1999. It would also be interesting to know
what the rx set-up was. The distance is quoted as 3850kms.

Yes this is the March issue of Radcom not the April issue!
