A rather dull morning, carriers only.


pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker, at least briefly):

no


Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it understandable by a native speaker, though often battling w/splash or noise):


no

not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or noise could be understood by a native speaker:

the above passing through


Burbles in the splatter and noise (if lucky, language might be guessed at by cadence of talk, or parallel established by changes in talk or music)

even here, nothing


Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or ravaged by splatter)

594 774 828 1242 1287 seemed to be Asian;
702 738 891 1017 1098 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

Nick

594 man talking DU English intonation 1200UT, but no sign of ID on hour; talk had an upbeat commercial feel to it.

603 island vocals 1112UT, likely Waatea

1017 choral music 1155UT, within a minute of yesteday's peak; Tonga most likely


Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or ravaged by splatter)

Masset DXpedition 25 June - 1 July 2018  View Printable Version 
Monday, July 02 2018

IRCA
On the quiet side this time around, but still lots of activity. I did
spend a lot more time on the shortwave bands, though. Just a few
observations from the week:

AUSTRALIA 891, 1158-, Radio TAB Jun 28 Interesting propagation on the MW
band this morning. The top half has just dropped off (after being decent
30 minutes ago), leaving the bottom half solidly Down Under. Racing
commentary, without any TOH ID. There's a weak cochannel as well giving a
SAH. Also in English giving a phone number, but not sure whether still TAB
or another. I see ABC Adelaide is listed cochannel with 50 kW, and the
only other possible is Magic from Wellington NZ with 5 kW. Not sure. By
12:03, both are there, and TAB definitely sounds different than the
cochannel (that gave the phone #). At 12:04, weather report. I'm pretty
sure they said Adelaide. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

JAPAN 1440, 1225-, JOWF Jun 29 Solidly back to Asian conditions this
morning compared to DU the past couple of days. Good reception this
morning, well over anything domestic. Little evidence of anything DU
today. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

MARSHALL ISLANDS 1098, 1216-, V7AB Jun 28 Strong buzzy OC is all I've been
hearing since arriving in Masset several days ago. Particulary strong this
morning. (Salmaniw,Masset, BC)

The Asian conditions moved down from Haida Gwaii, with a few of the carriers near to audio (702, 747, 1287), but not quite there.


pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker, at least briefly):

no


Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it understandable by a native speaker, though often battling w/splash or noise):


774 JOUB woman in Japanese 1126UT

not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or noise could be understood by a native speaker:

the above passing through


Burbles in the splatter and noise (if lucky, language might be guessed at by cadence of talk, or parallel established by changes in talk or music)

828 JOBB man and woman talking 1113UT //774

891 man talking, Japanese intonation 1129UT

1017 choral music, religious feel to it? 1154UT, Tonga most likely


Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or ravaged by splatter)

594 702 747 864 1134 1287 seemed to be Asian;
756 seemed to be DU
