They certainly were on the Washington coast
around 0515UT this past week Neil, but by
supposed s/off at 1000UT, not really. Kirimati
local sunset is about that time, not too long after the northwest coast's.

Depending on your local interference, maybe
0500-0600UT might be a good time for you to
record? The Pacific islands often seem to have
enhancement at transmitter sunset when listening
on the northwest coast, as well as a little ways inland.

best wishes,

Nick

Tonga had a new transmitter installed about a year ago, which wouldÂ
explain why it's been heard so well lately.

There's a brief story about it at http://www.tonga-broadcasting.net/?p=7192

Yes, we were all amazed to hear 1017-Tonga at such a potent level. It showed up on all 9 days for me, usually with some extended S9 strength. Craig even had it at S9 level on his 3.5" Baby FSL

Despite the squatter issue we all had a lot of DU-DXing fun at the Cliff, and as far as I know, Craig, Tom, Nick and I are all booking our return trips for next August. Unfortunately those guys left without hearing Western Australia, but it certainly seemed like 558 was making a return appearance this morning around 1256 during my very last session (DU English female speech in between the Fiji music). Now comes the hard part-- matching the recorded content with ABC's byzantine, contradictory website.

For any carrier chasers out there, after calibration my SDR's software
reports their signal as 5.5 Hz on the high side of 1017. At least a couple
other station peaks were noted slightly lower than 1017.

Good DX,

Guy

Thanks for the information and link, Bruce.

It's obvious that something had dramatically changed with 1017-Tonga's signal in Oregon. Along with the revitalized 558-Fiji, North American DXers now have two powerful DU targets. The Japanese transmitter on 558 is still performing very well, and 990-Fiji Gold was a big gun in the Cooks.
