Good news, EBC (the Brazilian public broadcaster) detailed their plans for the
SW trial.
They'll use a Continental Lensa tx at power levels of 4kW, 1kW and 250W with the
antenna at Brasilia beamed to Amazonia (beamed to the north).
They made reception prediction using Voacap and the expected coverage with be
the centre and part of the north of Brazil at 4kW.
They'll start testing the tx in AM mode in a few days at 6000kHz.
Also, as soon as possible, they'll change the tx crystal to 5990kHz (EBC's Radio
Senado frequency) and install the DRM30 exciter.
