[HCDX] VOA & AFN
I gave up with AFN and VOA, they never do answer emails.
The Diego Garcia base is not suprising to be strong as its quite a big
base for the military, the website says no other transmitter sites so
we seem to think the Diego base is back up and running.
Very suprised to pick up AFN here via the D/G freqs in the daytime
too, but when looking at the location its not suprising.
Do they only use 3KW?
