Recording of Radio Havana Cuba

leave a comment »

This recording of Radio Havana Cuba on 6000 kHz was made at 0654 UTC on August 9, 2014. This was about 40 minutes before sunset here in eastern Australia (North NSW).

The signal was quite weak, S4 to S6 in strength. I recorded in LSB to minimise noise.

This 14,400 km path on the 49m BC band would have improved with darkness falling at my location – though RHC ceases transmission on this band before then.

RHC has given good signals in previous weeks in the 16m BC band at around 1130 UTC but conditions have not been favourable there in the past week.

[Please ignore the extra 3 minutes after the end of transmission – I think I was listening to the mis-switched Spanish language transmissions on one of the other three 49m band frequencies until it was cut].
