shortwave summary, oct 2006 (part 5)

I wanted to do some early-morning scanning to pick up broadcasts from Asia. I used my Eton E5 and the Degen DE31 active loop antenna, and I call this my breakfast scan.

This scan was done on 21 Oct 2006 during 1552-1726 UTC. My primary source for station identifications was the EiBi A06 shortwave schedule.
