I took the K-Po radio into the bathroom this evening while I had a bath and listened to Radio Barones on 1638 kHz. 
He played a range of old songs from the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Roxette and Tina Turner. It was really good to listen to a Dutch pirate on a small transistor radio using just the ferrite antenna.

The MW band opened well before nightfall today and there was some relatively short skip on SW before dark. Medium wave signals were good all evening at this location and many stations came on to take advantage of the conditions.
A sad finish to my notes: you may have heard about the sad passing of Jan of Radio Wadloper. A good radio friend. RIP, Jan
