China Radio International – 13590 kHz

My first station logged on Friday the 22nd day of October 2021 was China Radio International broadcasting in the English language on 13590 kHz. The broadcast audience was South East Asia.

The overall reception of CRI was excellent. There was some interference on the same frequency, likely to be SOH Xi Wang Zhi Sheng in CHINA in the Chinese language.


Below is a video of my reception of CRI on 13590 kHz as heard on my Yaesu FTdx101MP and dipole.

WEWN – 5970 kHz

My final station logged on Thursday 21st October 2021 was WEWN on 5970 kHz broadcasting in the Spanish language.

I tuned in at 1235 UTC.

WEWN is the shortwave radio outlet of the Eternal World Television Network (EWTN), a large Roman Catholic international broadcaster which is based in Irondale in Alabma in the USA. The station was launched by Mother Angelica on the 28th day of December 1992. WEWN broadcasts from the city of Vandiver, Alabama, in the vicinity of the Birmingham metro area. There are four transmitters capable of 500 kilowatts each, but are run no higher than 250 kW.

The overall reception of WEWEN was fair. There was a significant amount of interference from China National Radio on 5975 kHz
