Jan. 4: Best morning conditions that I have noticed recently. Ethiopian stations audible with strong signals around 04UTC on 49 mb. Cuban stations on 60 mb were very strong, Progreso have never been that clear. At 07 UTC mostly Brazilians audible on 49 mb: 5940, 5965, 6040, 6135. Probably the rest are inactive, because there was no sign from other B-stations on 49 mb. The news from Radio Capodistria verified, that we have had pretty much Middle European winter again here in Finland. The snow has arrived in Slovenia just in the end of students holiday season, in the same time when it arrived in Finland (of course Lapland is another story).
