** Personal First

September 1st was quite a special morning. I've only ever logged one Ecuadorian station on medium wave. Radio Sucre from Guayaquil on 700 kHz. I've actually heard this twice, so I am well aware how rare Ecuador is to hear. Then THREE new Ecuadorian stations come along within minutes of each other! Curiously, Radio Sucre wasn't heard at all at the time.

Videos of this DX being received can be seen on my YouTube channel:

Good DX!
