Reception Report #27: May 27. Lesser Slave Lake, Alberta (11580 from Miami)

Subject: Requiem for Radio SW Broadcast, May 27, 2017

Message: Hello Amanda,

I found out about the Requiem for Radio project and SW broadcast schedule via the SWL.com site. I'm so glad I did- amazing creations! I caught the May 27th broadcast from WRMI 11580 kHz at 5-6pm MT (2300-2400 UTC).

It was a sublime listening experience.

I took a digital portable SW receiver (Tecsun PL880) to a beach on Lesser Slave Lake (north central Alberta) and ran a 30' wire to some scrubby bushes. There was zero noise because there was zero electrical devices for at least a km. I sat on a driftwood log, listening with noise cancelling headphones as the warm wind crashed waves to the shore. Without any RFI in the signal, it sounded as hi-fi as shortwave can get!
