Many thanks to SRAA contributor, Tom Laskowski, who shares the following recording and notes:

New Year's Eve has always been a good night to stay home and play radio. This recording is one I won't ever have the chance to hear live again. Here are the last four minutes and forty seconds of the GMT year 1999 and the first 25 minutes twenty seconds of the year 2000. As a tradition I would always welcome the GMT New Year by tuning in to the BBC to hear the chimes from Big Ben (which I believe were heard live).

Starting time: 23:55:20
Frequency: 6.175 MHz

Many thanks to Shortwave Radio Audio Archive contributor, Colin Anderton, who shares a series of off-air recordings, originally made on reel-to-reel tape, of Radio Moscow in the late 1970s. This is the eighth recording in this collection. Colin notes:

As a space flight nut, I have many recordings from the 1970s from Radio Moscow. They used to broadcast on the medium wave, and I used to record the news bulletins during some of the space flights.
In particular, there was a period between December 1977 and March 1978 when Soviet cosmonauts first lived aboard the Salyut 6 space station. I recorded each days' news reports on the flights, and also some additional items about them. I have some other flights as well.
I received them all on 227 metres Medium Wave at 22.00 hrs GMT each night. I was in a village called Stetchworth, near Newmarket, Suffolk, England at the time.
In fact, an announcer gives the general daily broadcast details on this first recording.
I used a similar system with all the files, that is: where any edit takes place, I have placed a one-second break to identify the spot. No other editing of any kind has been done.

radio-rsa-1-logo.jpg

Many thanks to SRAA contributor, Tom Laskowski, who shares the following recording and notes:

Every Saturday night during the early 1980s [in South Bend, Indiana] I would regularly tune to 9580 kHz at 0200 to listen to Radio RSA (Channel Africa as it is now known) to hear DX Corner, their regular DX program. This episode from March 14, 1982 was a look at the brand new hot radio, the Sony ICF-2001. The audio isn't great but should be listenable. I think this was recorded using my new Realistic DX-302. Enjoy!

Radio Enciclopedia, logo 1.jpg

Live, off-air, one-and-a-half-hour excerpt of an almost four-hour recording of Radio Cubana's AM radio station CMBQ, Radio Enciclopedia, Havana, Cuba, on 8 August 2017 beginning at about 18:30 UTC. The station operates on an frequency of 530 kHz from a transmitter in the Villa MarĂ­a area of Havana with a power of 10 kW and an omnidirectional antenna.

The transmission was received on a Tecsun PL-880 receiver with its built-in ferrite-bar-loop antenna in Naples, Florida, in AM mode with 5 kHz RF filtering. Reception was fairly good although there was co-channel interference from a Radio Rebelde transmitter in Caribe on Isla de la Juventud, which is in the same direction as Havana as seen from Naples.

Radio Enciclopedia is an easy-listening music station with pieces interspersed with music descriptions and brief encyclopedic tidbits read by female announcers.

The recorded program is "La Tarde Contigo."
