    On Saturday evening

    (9th October 2021) I did a little bit more short wave
    broadcast listening. The first station in my log on Saturday was China
    Radio International on 11760 kHz on the 25m band on short wave.
    China Radio International

    (CRI) is the state-owned international radio
    broadcaster of China. It was founded on the 3rd day of December 1941 as
    Radio Peking, and in 1983 changed its name to Radio Beijing. On the 1st
    day of January 1993 the station changed its name to China Radio

    Programs listened to were Selfie which had the story of the chrysanthemum
    in China, and Take Away Chinese a Chinese language learning program.
    Below is a short video of my reception of China Radio International.

    Last Friday night

    (8th October 2021) I decided to do some broadcast short
    wave listening. I used the Tecsun S-2000 and a Tecsun long wire which was
    only a few few off the ground.
    The first station I logged was 4KZ in Innisfail in Far North Queensland on
    5055 kHz on the 60m band short wave.
