KG5JST Radio Reception Logs, June 5-16, 2018

Introduction: Unless other noted, all times/dates below are in UTC, all frequencies are in kilohertz, the mode is AM, and my QTH isĀ 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.

      • Radio Havana Cuba 6165 on June 10, 03:29. SIO 555! — Caught just the tail-end of an episode of break through hosted by Arnie Coro, discussing efforts to modernize the Cuban national railroad. I hope they replay this one as it sounds very interesting… one important note is that Arnie mentioned that the railroad is the most economical method of transportation for both freight and passengers. — At 03:30 started The Jazz Place with Gerwin Jones. Smoking hot trumpets and sax, but didn’t catch the band’s name. — Later on I find out it is the Yosvany Terry Sextet, which blends Cuban traditions and US American jazz. I will be looking for more of Terry’s work. I’m impressed.
