    Hello all,

    Following a log made in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. I used only FM dipoles with very limited time to do radio.
    Nevertheless good cndx noted in MW (including on noise level). Unid in SS at 550, 590, 600, 800, 910, 1450, 1490 kHz and in EE at 560, 1160 kHz. Others on the log.

    The proximity to Cumberland Hill gave a lot of overload to FM and VHF TV bands, even using SDR and turned an analog receiver useless for DX.

    5 FM stations were active with RDS, while 1 with IBOC side carriers at night. Only 1 VEN detected in FM, but with appropriate time and antennas much more could be heard. The same for TEP, only 1 B received, but seems the first B fully registered from the Caribbean site (89.3 MHz, Gospel FM, Curitiba, 4226 km).

    The first part of the FM spectrum (before 90 MHz) is less occupied, therefore best for DX. Ch6A is active, despite being close to the FM BC band and low power, it could be used as a TEP/Es indicator.
