Same in Victoria so far Nigel; just carriers. The only odd one was
864, where Egypt has been tentatively heard in the past, but no audio
this time. That K=1 seems to be having an effect...


best wishes,

Nick

Puyallup, WA UltraLoud TP's for 10-19  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 20 2018

IRCA

    Victoria may have the TA's and DU's, but this inland valley didn't come away empty during the enhanced propagation overnight. Starting at 1030 UTC the Asian mainland TP's went on a rampage, with 603-HLSA, 657-Pyongyang and 738-BEL2 all hitting S9+ levels at some point during the extended session. They all had Asian co-channels, however, making the session really wacky. The Korean and Chinese signals were so strong that they were coming in at good levels on 7.5 inch loopsticks alone, while a 5" Frequent Flyer FSL antenna set up in the back yard ran wild tracking down extended S9 programming from 657-Pyongyang on a stock D-808.

     The first indication of a wild morning was an S7 signal from Pyongyang at 1030 UTC, a full three hours before daybreak. Both 603 and 738 were also in good audio at the time, as were the NHK big guns. The stock D-808 and 5" FSL were set up to record 657 for the next 4 hours in the back yard, and the humble duo delivered some awesome Pyongyang recordings (two of which are linked below). Meanwhile the main effort started at 1330, when a 15" FSL, another 5" Frequent Flyer FSL, a 7.5" CC Skywave SSB Ultralight, the 30" loopstick ICF-2010 spotting receiver and a PVC antenna base were set up at the local Peach Park to escape the neighbor's RFI noise. A photo of all this gear set up at the park this morning is posted at  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/vvaer3ezu6bsarbpf5m9mm0gm203vv1s

     Asian signals seemed fairly routine until just after 1400, when both 603-HLSA and 738-BEL2 started really going on the warpath. 756-CNR1, 936-Anhui and 963-CRI also came into audio, while the Chinese and Korean co-channels on 603, 657 and 738 started making some noise. Both HLSA and BEL2 hit their strongest levels ever here (S9+) around 1415, while 639-CNR1 came out of nowhere to pound in at S7 around 1418. A quick check was made of the Chinese on 1017, 1035, 1044 and 1053 about this time, but the audio on these frequencies was only touch and go. The 5" Frequent Flyer FSL was set up in place of the 15" monster at 1420, and it promptly tracked down 603, 639, 657, 738 and 972 at good levels, and 963-CRI's Russian at a fair level. At 1430 the Asian big gun signals were still fairly potent, but a park side neighbor let out his two barking dogs, who apparently figured that all my gear was highly subversive. Their constant barking quickly got the attention of their owner, who came out to give me the suspicious eye. It was time to call it a session, and get out of Dodge with all the gear. Overall it was an awesome session, with several legendary signals for this lackluster location.


603  HLSA   Hwaseong, S. Korea   S9+ with Korean pop music around 1415, but its Chinese co-channel (Hulun Buir?) made some noise in between songs  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/qdymbx6hp76zgxn6m11r8um8y2nicawv

639  CNR1   Chinese Synchros   Male and female Chinese speech coming out of nowhere to reach S7 level at 1418  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/iv415iap8gkk4m0jttlwivgnmwlzg1oc

657  Pyongyang BS   Pyongyang, N.Korea  S9+ orchestral music at 1337 (recorded on the D-808 and 5" FSL) over the Chinese co-channel  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/fl3xvezg3s3afqmmc32n73q3jwa0xjn7

Spooky-sounding female vocal music at S9 level at 1354-- maybe getting ready for Halloween?  (recorded on the D-808 and 5" FSL)  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/237ap42ibvpyyo25n8loli694kic5swf

738  BEL2   Penghu, Taiwan   Interval signal and male Chinese speech at S9+ level around 1410, but the Korean co-channel HLKG comes back with female speech at the end  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/2wjm5oat9ujs08mdxnt7xeyinhunbre7

963  CRI   Huaduan, China   CRI Russian service at fair level on the 5" FSL and CC Skywave at 1423  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/g56u2y5c9thociaziia2n6or6hs5lvt3

73 and Good DX,

Oct 20 - TA flirtation...  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 20 2018

Trust Friday nights to deliver endless flirtation with just scant hints of audio.

639, 882, 1089, 1215, 1458!?

The band is frustratingly coy.

0510 UTC

DRAKE R8 - WEST FLAG!

Tomorrow: putting up a N flag!

Picked up somewhat here too. Had audio from the Czech station on 639
the last several minutes, and traces of audio from the UK on 693 and 1215.

Well, correct that slightly. There were a couple of men struggling
through the splash on 1413 at 0352UT, and that's not a channel I've
heard audio on here. So, there may be hope.
