shortwave scanning, august 2017

To get reacquainted with shortwave listening, I scanned some of the broadcast bands during daytime, assisted by short-wave.info for identification. These receptions were at home via my battery-powered Tecsun PL-310 connected to ceiling-mounted random wire antennas. I've provided quick impression SIO codes to describe the reception quality.
