[HCDX] Part 2 on new mystery PNG Station
OK the mystery is not so much a mystery.
Again I began monitroing 585 kHz at 0815 UTC last night and only NBC Port Moresby (which is audible all day here) was there // 4890 as per usual.
At 0824 UTC the second station on 585 kHz began to appear under NBC Port Moresby and again it was // 3205.
It clearly ID'd as Radio Sandaun during a fade up.
Out of interest I checked 1593 kHz to hear a station which from the language is probably the Micronesian but there wasn't an ID and the signal was almost on the noise floor. It certainly wasn't // 585 or 3205. I couldn't get an ID on this because by 0905 UTC the NHK2 outlet on this frequency carrying Portugese was causing intereference. I heard enough of the songs to recognise 70's C&W song titles in English, but the talk was muffled and during fade outs - as usual! Later in the evening CNR wipes 1593 out totally.
But back to 585. Again like previously evening they had their own programming until 0900 when they both carried NBC News with a slight echo delay. Then it was back to their own programming and Radio Sandaun on 585 and 3205 signed off at 1205.
So I'm convinvced that this is Radio Sandaun on new 585 kHz.
