Medium wave reception in Kazan     

 
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 season of autumn 2003 spring 2004. See bandscan data of current season here.

Usage of asterisks: *0500 denotes start of transmission, 2200* denotes end of transmission. Transmitter locations are given in parentheses. Double slash (//) refers to a parallel (usually a stronger one) frequency.
