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 2005 spring 2006. See bandscan data of current season here.

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

After inclusion of regional Russian radio companies into VGRTK the current state of regional broadcasting is unclear. Try to listen at 0600-0800 or 1800-1900 (local time of each city). Radio station Mayak in many cities (Cheboksary, Saratov, etc.) can only be heard during the morning hours.

Nationwide networks of Russia (Radio Rossii, Mayak, Radiostantsiya Yunost, Radio Orfey) only broadcast in Russian. Regional stations may have minorities' languages broadcasts.
