It's me behind antenna of 350kW(max.1500kW) MW transmitter in Southern Poland
Hi! My name is Michal and nowadays I spend my free time on listening to radio. But not typical radio like most people. First of all I am interested in transmissions on HF frequencies. There are a lot of interesting transmission here like regular broadcasting stations but also HAM, pirate, spy, utility stations (avation, marine) and much more... It is connected with working with my hardware (eg. antenna system), but I like it too. Radio listening means also contacts with many nice people: radio operators and other listeners. Of course I check also what happens on higher frequencies (VHF, UHF).
My location and hardware infos are here.

And short story of one man... (how it started)
I started listening AM radio few months ago. One day when I
was swiching of my radio I accidentally turn it to MW band and I heard program
in Polish language. But it was Polish which sounded like Chinese. It was so
funny that I stayed tuned longer. It was Chinese Radio International programme.
Despite of distorted, funny language I started listenig this programm nearly
every day. But it was no easy to good receive MW and SW stations on typical
radios.So I soon bought Siemens RK661 and Degen DE1103 (it really was bought in
China and mail costed 40% of whole pice). I started listening comercial or
national stations from the world and it was very nice to receive station from
South America or New Zealand. Of course I must use external antenna. At start it
was few meters of wire, later I added the ground but main problem was (and is)
noises from TV set, chargers etc.
