** Personal First

This evening brought one of the best Asiatic sessions I can remember! Three clear Japanese stations, plus monstrous signals from South Koreans 972 HLCA, 1170 HLSR and 1566 HLAZ.

There were lots of unidentified Oriental signals too. I have an idea what some of these are, but until I hear an ID I will leave them alone. It's quite clear there are other Japanese stations in there.

NB: 1206 2059 CHN Shanxi RGD Nongcun Guangbo, Shuozhou added. 19-09-16 NB: 1143 1900 Radio Free Korea, unknown site added. 21-09-16 NB: 1440 1900 JOWF Sapporo added 10-10-16

Good DX!
