Just a few excerpts from my logs, from September and early October, given that the schedules are going to change on October 25/26. Some or many of the frequencies listed here will not be affected by the changes though, as the trend for international shortwave stations to disappear seems to continue, and local broadcasters don’t necessarily care about long-distance propagation.
International Telecommunication Union letter codes used in the table underneath:
D – Germany; E – Spain; EQA – Ecuador; G – Great Britain; J – Japan; NIG – Nigeria; PHL – Philippines; SWZ – Swaziland; TWN – Taiwan; TZA – Tanzania; USA – USA.
C – Chinese; E – English; F – French; G – German; R – Russian; S – Spanish. The table underneath will appear messy unless you click the headline of this particular post. The table is broader than the two columns of the overall blog frontpage. However, it is more convenient to find with a search engine this way.

1) Some ordinary jamming which maybe affected reception in China itself seriously, but not here in norther Germany.
2) Göhren is a village near Schwerin, Mecklenburg-Pomerania, and the small transmission site there is privatly-owned.The broadcaster relayed when I listened was Hamburger Lokalradio which on Wednesday afternoons carries Deutsche-Welle-produced programs, plus Glenn Hauser‘s audiomagazine World of Radio. (Unfortunately, that’s only one day before there’s a new edition from Hauser anyway.)
3) Voice of Mongolia was relayed via the 1-kW transmitter in Kall-Krekel, not too far from former federal capital Bonn, in September and probably until October 5.Three times a day, usually good reception here in northern Germany.
4) The – now usual – jamming by Chinese radio stations.
5) Keith Perron’s special program Song of India, mainly with India as a target area via a medium wave transmitter from Sri Lanka (several times), but also via WRMI on this one occasion.
6) Pleasant surprise – probably heard HCJB right from Pico Pichincha on October 5 at 02:15, too, but as the language was vernacular and not Spanish, I didn’t even get the ID then. On Oct 12 at 04:00 UT, the broadcast was in Spanish. HCJB’s local shortwave station had been off-air in August and September.
