KG5JST Radio Reception Logs, May 21-23, 2018

Introduction: Unless other noted, all times/dates below are in UTC, all frequencies are in kilohertz, the mode is AM, and my QTH is in EM15ep in far Northwest Oklahoma City

Most of my listening is done via ultralight shortwave radio receivers (my favorite of late is my CCrane Skywave), but I also sometimes use my Yaesu FT-817 or a standard car radio. I use a variety of antennas when at home but often use only the stock antenna when walking or bike riding outdoors.

Editing note from May 23, 2018: Thanks to comments sent by Glenn Hauser of World of Radio, I have corrected some times that I wrote down as Central time rather than UTC.
