Random Log for August

Since early August the following observations have been made on the medium-wave and short-wave bands, here in Malaysia. Aside from the stations listed in this log -- most internationally recognised stations -- All India Radio, BBC, China Radio International, Deutsche Welle, KBS World Radio, NHK Radio Japan (via Nauen, Issoudun and Yamata), Radio Taiwan etc. dominate the airwaves. RTM Sarawak FM and Wai FM (via Kajang) are the only Malaysian stations still broadcasting on short-wave. A few additional All India Radio medium-wave stations have been observed. A VOA affiliated medium-wave station, out Tajikistan, has been noted as well. Hopefully propagation is much better wherever you may be. Happy DXing!
