BBC Radio Scotland*
BBC Radio Scotland* via Burghead, Scotland was logged on 30 March 2019. The Billy Sloan SHow and BBC news was heard from 23.00 till 00.05 UTC (00.00 till 01.05 AM, Scotland time). Reception on the medium-wave frequency of 810 kHz at 23.00 UTC rated a SINPO of 33533 -- fair signal with co-frequency mixing from presumably a dominant Radio Makedonija, fading under Radio Makedonija every five to six minutes, otherwise occasionally clear and audible content. At 23.30 UTC, mixing with Radio Makedonija and later Radio Madrid, but still audible despite strong interference.
