KG5JST Radio Listening Logs, March 25-28, 2018, UTC

Unless otherwise noted, all frequencies are in kilohertz, the transmission mode is AM, and all times and dates are in UTC.

And unless other noted, my QTH is EM15ep in the Deer Creek area of far Northwest Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, USA.

My listening equipment is most often a Tecsun PL-310 ET, but I also sometimes use my Yaesu FT-817, my TIVDIO V-115, my Radio Shack 2000669, as well as AM/FM car radios. My favorite antenna is my MFJ-1988-T multiband backpacker antenna, but many of my receptions are with the stock antenna only or an attached random long-wire.

Lots of discussion in comparing the trade relations of the US and Japan in the 1980’s to present situation, but also discussing how the situations are not analagous (given the US’s post WW2 occupation of Japan and its ongoing military presence). The commentator says the biggest problems is that the US isn’t producing enough goods that would be interest to Chinese consumers.
