Medium wave reception in Kazan

Last update: 07 May 2011

Below is a table of medium wave stations that are more or less regularly heard at my location in Kazan, Russia. It's known that distant reception in this band is only possible during the periods of darkness and dusk. All times are UTC.

The table stores my personal observations for the current broadcasting season (B10, autumn 2010 spring 2011). To see similar data collected during previous seasons, follow the links below:
B10: Autumn 2010 Spring 2011
B09: Autumn 2009 Spring 2010
 
 
 
B05: Autumn 2005 Spring 2006
B04: Autumn 2004 Spring 2005
B03: Autumn 2003 Spring 2004
B02: Autumn 2002 Spring 2003
 
A09: Spring 2009 Autumn 2009
A08: Spring 2008 Autumn 2008
 
A06: Spring 2006 Autumn 2006
A05: Spring 2005 Autumn 2005
A04: Spring 2004 Autumn 2004
A03: Spring 2003 Autumn 2003

Broadcasting hours are indicated for each station and frequency, but that doesn't mean that station is off the air in other times. Many distant stations simply are not heard in the daytime due to lack of propagation. And don't forget that I fill the list at my own pace; quite possible that I didn't explore some frequencies during some time periods yet.

Usage of asterisks: *0500 denotes transmitter sign-in, 2200* denotes transmitter sign-off. Transmitter locations (according to WRTH and/or EMWG) are given in parentheses. Double slash (//) refers to a parallel (usually a stronger one) frequency.

Nationwide networks of Russia (Radio Rossii, Mayak, Radio Orfey) only broadcast in Russian. Regional stations may have minorities' languages broadcasts. Radio Rossii transmissions are time-shifted in regions where time zone differs from Moscow by 2 hours or more. These versions are called Dubl-1 through Dubl-4. They all are from time to time joined together for the newscasts.
