Earlier today, I was able to catch the end of the GAA All-Ireland Football Final (Kerry v Donegal) on RTE 17,495 kHz, starting around 15:50 UTC, with my WinRadio Excalibur receiver and sky loop antenna. 

I enjoy hearing sporting events broadcast over shortwave–perhaps it’s my imagination filling in the gaps from the live coverage or the washy sound of the crowds roaring.  Regardless, RTÉ has a long-standing track record of broadcasting the GAA finals on every medium possible.

I recorded the last few minutes of the game and nearly an hour of commentary afterward. Enjoy:
