    My lat station logged on Tuesday

    (12th October 2021) was the Voice of
    Indonesia on 3325 kHz on the 90m band.

    Overall reception of the Voice of Indonesia on this frequency was fair.
    The signal strength was fair with absolutely no interference from other stations, with moderate fading, and only slight noise.

    the Tecsun S-2000, and the Yaesu FTdx101MP.

    Radio Rebelde, CUBA

    Posted: 16 Oct 2021 08:56 PM PDT https://vk5pas.org/2021/10/17/radio-rebelde-cuba/

    My next station logged for Tuesday night

    (12th October 2021) was Radio
    Rebelde in CUBA.

    Radio Rebelde is a Cuban Spanish language station which broadcasts 24 hours
    a day with a varied program of national and international music hits of the moment, news reports and live sport events.
    The station was established in 1958 by Che Guevara in the Sierra Maestra region of eastern Cuba. It was designed to broadcast the aims of the 26th of July Movement led by Fidel Castro. It also broadcast the
    latest combat news, music and spoken literature to the people of Cuba
    during the Cuban Revolution.

    I was receiving Radio Rebelde very well. The signal strength was good and there was slight interference from other stations. However there was quite
    a lot of static crashes with an approaching storm here. Overall reception
    was good.

    Below is a short video showing my reception of Radio Rebelde.
