Radio Nacional de Brasilia: April 20, 2014

Many thanks to SRAA contributor, Greg Shoom, for this recording of Radio Nacional de Brasilia.

Greg made this recording on April 20, 2014 at 03:03 UTC on 6,180 kHz. Greg used his Kaito KA1103 portable radio with built in telescopic antenna to capture this broadcast.

Greg comments:

"This recording has the distinctive sound of shortwave - distortion of the signal from its passage through the Earth's ionosphere, interference from a station on an adjacent frequency, the sound of natural static, and the whine of a heterodyne in the background. Stations like this from Latin America used to be much more common. It's good to hear that Brazil still has a presence on shortwave."
