Jun 28th, 2018 partial log , really partial ...

Frequency: +
Codec: + (assuming since I can't decode the broadcast)
Modulation: - ( ditto )

BTW, I didn't decode any audio despite indications otherwise.

Ampegon,

I'd certainly rather see the resumption of R. Kuwait on 13650 kHz with 16 QAM modulation, 350 degrees azimuth, and the xHE-AAC codec. Keep PS. Why do I want Ampegon to keep PS with 16 QAM modulation? Because, the implementation of PS in xHE-AAC is clearly superior to the one in HE-AAC.

For myself I believe that a codec that gets me no audio at all is a bad codec

Yes, the operation was a success but the patient died!

Thankfully, there's a cure, but it might require some money ... like everything in life.

Strong signal registered in southern Brazil yesterday and saturday (MER MAX 22dB). However I am with Morphy Richards only at my parents' house. Tomorrow I will go to my house, where I can count on my Avion receiver to be able to decode the audio. But it's great to see that Kuwait is back with great signal in Brazil. I know there are 3 people, besides me, with Avion receivers here in Brazil. As soon as I can decode, I want to broadcast in a DXista program that aired all over Brazil and around the world, in the shortwave of Radio Aparecida.

Fabulous idea ... Personally, I'm looking forward to your recordings.

I sent a couple of minutes of xHE-AAC audio to Per. Perhaps he will help me to upload it somewhere for you guys to listen to.

Yes, give this link a try:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/yoc8rn...E-AAC.zip/file

If you use Firefox as browser, right click on the link and then save link as.
This is the name of the file; 15540kHz_ 19-6-2018_19-37-37_xHE-AAC.zip

My pc W10 cannot open the zip file!
......Finally I found a way to decompress the zip file.

Use firefox: right click on URL and choose "open link in a new tab"...it opens "MediaFire"...click on download button, click open and extract the 2 "wav" files somewhere in your pc. That worked for me.

Interesting xHE-AAC file so thanks to everyone. The higher frequencies of SBR allow for a more open and airy sound. Again, if time and circumstances permit, I'd like to see a STEREO recording uploaded even if R. Kuwait doesn't use much discrete channel information in their broadcasts for xHE-AAC's PS encoder. Hopefully, some musical selections would be clearly defined in stereo. If so, please upload any files in a lossless format like WAV or FLAC as AAC+ will mangle those stereo files. R. Kuwait probably doesn't use much spatial information at all in their productions anyway. I'd love to hear the Doors' "Soul Kitchen" in PS.

Some signal registered today in Brazil. With the Avion receiver, I could see the name of the station, unlike the Morphy Richards that does not decode the name of the radio, because it is incompatible with the new xHE-AAC codec, although it is just an audio codec. This week I could not hear before, because I was at work. Today was cloudy, tomorrow is forecast to rain and maybe on Sunday, with the forecast of being sunny, it might be possible to make a good record here.

TIA for the effort. I'm looking forward to those recordings. BTW, how much does the DR-1401 cost in US dollars ... include the shipping cost to SA. An approximate figure would be just fine. Without shipping, at the current exchange rate, the retail price seems to be ~ $210.

At the beginning of the year I bought for about U$ 280, from a friend in Brazil who had bought the receiver but had difficulties tuning to DRM stations in his city. Well at the time I was having problems with Uniwave due to an update for it to work with xHE-AAC, but that did not work since it was a Diveemo receiver, according Alexander Zink, DRM vice chairman of DRM. Then I was able to rescue by getting in touch with the Uniwave servant. My old MR was also having trouble with the menu button. I sold and bought a new one later. Anyway today I have Uniwave, MR and Avion, and only Avion is compatible with xHE-AAC. I hope Titus will be marketed in 3 months, as a chinese told me on my Youtube channel.

Radio Kuwait 15540 kHz DRM, 07 JUL 2018

Good signal registered at 18:50 UTC, but I observed the old codec HE-AAC.
