Radio Happy Isles – Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation

5020 kHz. Received in Niigata, Japan.

04-Oct-2015, Local Time – 04:00 AM (1900 UTC)     Language: English

Receiver: Microtelecom Perseus

Antenna: BCL-LOOP 11

A strong signal was received in the early morning in Japan.  The recording includes signing-on, opening announcement, followed by the national anthem of Solomon Islands (very nice song!).  It is assumed that this reception was based on the gray-line path, as the signal was gradually getting weaker after sunrise at Solomon Islands area.

Using the data-logging function of Perseus, I plotted the signal strength (in dBm) into a graph, which clearly indicates the propagation getting worse after 0430 JST.
