Sunday afternoon, 4 Nov 2018, UTC 1725, local time 1:55 pm, in downtown St John's, Newfoundland, I'm getting a 25%-audio signal from RRI in French on 9870 kHz. This is with an 8-metre wire aerial connected to my Morphy-Richards 27024. (By contrast, for some reason my Avion is seeing only about 6 dB MER at the best of times.)

EDIT ten minutes later: Reception has suddenly improved to something more like 65% decoding.

Frequency: +
Codec: -
Modulation: -

After reading Alex's explanation of RRI's signal, it's a good thing RRI is using a monophonic feed instead of stereo with the AAC+ codec which would manage a stereo signal pretty significantly. The 64 QAM 20.96 kpbs configuration is just nuts for a low quality, monophonic signal on shortwave. We desperately need more PRIVATE broadcasters.

BTW, I used my DX Engineering magnetic loop instead of my MMDs-31 for this log.
