Therefore read some of my loggings here: made in SW  the last week;: 
sent otiginally to SWL ist and in Thesaloniki at high QRN due to 
city's electicity etc. 

4925 10.8 	2338  	R Jambi at levels 		IN 1x1x1 
	 28.7	1705	same 					   12343
heared nearly always but at these very low sigs I can imagine it is 
DX , huh? 

4950 	2342  RN Angola msx			PO 2x2x2
the station  has been heared at somehow better signals  in Litohoron 
with only language IDable  , though others not 

6785 	0036	unIDabe on tremendously bad mod against Pakistan 3x1x2
(here if someone knows anything about it) 

15295 RTM for this year inThessaloniki : always abt 11241 howqever in 
Litohoron ( read MT Olympos ) at a place free of QRN signals are of 
levels 34433 (1530- ) 

NOtice that my system  is : 
Lowe HF 150 with a ATU of 'gain ' abt 10-15 dB and twoantennas 6m 
sloped /10m hor 

What do you think about these transmissions: DX or not ? 
However I can think  that R Europe  in 7300 LSB ( of only 500W ) 
at 11111 can be really  a DX catch! 
The most time I listen to SW ( and 99% of my raedio listening goes 
only to SW! ) goes  to freqs below 41 mb

NOe thi is what I can say : 
IN Thesaloniki 6900 of Turkish Meteo Station with ard 33333 is a easy 
catch. How is  received in your area?

BUt I can't  think that HArd core  can be only for active DXers with 
800 m beverage antennas  who try to listen to  very veery low WM/ LW 
antennas unlistenable otherwise in Europe who afterwards 'blame' the 
normal SW DXers as 'advanced' can't  be  the mean DX type 

I think that my friend Dario Monferini (of R EUrope ) is a true DXer 
sonce he could listen reatively clearly  to signals of 11111 ! 
If someone  has the issue 849 of Play DX can read abt me
