Trying the AM broadcast band with the mini-whip antenna, HF upconvertor and the rtl-sdr stick with gqrx software. Reasonable reception of:
675 kHz Radio Maria 11km
747 kHz NPO Radio 5 38km
792 kHz France Info 742km
837 kHz France Info 364km
882 kHz BBC Radio Wales 594km
909 kHz BBC Radio 5 live 366km
1008 kHz Groot Nieuws Radio 38km
1053 kHz Talksport 494km
1089 kHz Talksport 366km
1377 kHz France Info 229km
1422 kHz Deutschlandfunk 329km
1440 kHz China radio international 236km
1458 kHz BBC Asian network 472km
1584 kHz Radio Paradijs 1km
Stations were fading and I 'cheated' by looking at the AM reception prediction at fmscan.org to confirm languages and service names where I also got the distances from.

I am trying to find out what I hear on 1557 kHz which can be either Vahon Hindustani Radio from 49km away or France Info from 937km away. There was a very interesting article about the transmitter setup for Vahon in the Electron magazine of the Veron radio amateur club. Constant fading makes it hard to understand but at one moment I heard music which I also heard on the livestream from Vahon and at another moment I heard speech in French.
