New Colombian 4940  View Printable Version 
Sunday, September 13 2020

HCDX


Manuel, thanks for your info. Last night I heard two stations on 4940kHz
between 2330-0045UTC (Sep12/13). Both with very weak signals here in the
middle of Europe. One of them had an endless religious talk by a man in
Spanish, I supposed it was Radio San Antonio from Peru (but not closing at
2400 as listed). The second station was mostly playing music, no ann heard.
A frequency difference between the stations was about 20Hz, the talking
station was the higher one. I gave it up at 0045, signals were getting
weaker and weaker as it usually happens in this area after some peak
conditions between ...2300-2400... (to South America).

COLOMBIA (presumed), 4940, new station, 0450-0635, 13-09, Spanish,
religious comments, Colombian song, more religious comments. The same
formant and same announcers as La Voz de tu Conciencia or Alcaravan
Radio, it seems that relaying its programs, 1 hour 25 minutes non stop
Martin Stendal sermon, film advertisement "Ahora, la película La Montaña
disponible totalmente gratis, lamontañacolombia.com", "El Caballo y su
Muchacho". Curiously, at 0504 UTC they announced the time "La 1 y 4
minutos", when in Colombia it was 0 hours 4 minutes. No identification
heard. Very weak here in Reinante, 15321, fair to good via SDR Kiwi
remote receiver in Bonaire.

WNJC 1360 DX Test Sept 13 & 14th  View Printable Version 
Saturday, September 12 2020

HCDX
I figured as much but thought it would have been stronger given the 200 mile distance. Hope it was widely heard. The off the hook phone sounds and warbling tones cut through the mess.

Fun to have CPC tests again. G

I removed Paul from the Reply List, he will be happier.

George, if you were hearing those tones, you were hearing WNJC. I
think there should have been more "Station Identification Jingles"
broadcast, they were recognizable for exactly what they were and the
station call letters were quite readable.

But even with Morse code identification could be a problem, I was a
professional radiotelegrapher for many years and I had to have the
Morse repeated four times before I could be sure I copied the whole
thing - but what else could it be - but because of the error in
spacing
"D E" as two words, I wanted to be sure I could say "I heard WNJC" in
Morse when there was another error in that! There wasn't just the
incorrect spacing of "DE."

Best wishes,
David Ring

WNJC 1360 DX Test Sept 13 & 14th  View Printable Version 
Saturday, September 12 2020

HCDX
Les knows of what he speaks.. he and I have had some long conversations.. i
was initially a bit unsure and hesitant, but I will stand by him on
whatever he produces for test material.

Plus... a little error in morse code playback? So what, makes it more
noticeable. Who else is going to be running long form mrose code?
