Redding AM Joins Ranks Going Off The Air  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, January 17 2018

I should add....not entirely a failure of the FCC that a market is over
radioed.. sure they allot the frequencies, but too many broadcasters
believe just because you CAN shove a frequency in, you SHOULD do it. Just
because there's spectrum space doesnt mean you should actually light it
up. KLXR had no website and a sparse social media presence as I recall.

I worked for a standalone 25,000 Watt FM in the market and WE STRUGGLED to
break even some months. I can't imagine how a 1kw standalone AM managed to
last this long

KLXR ran "The America's Best Music" soft adult oldies format from Westwood
One via satelitte feed.

TA carriers again  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, January 17 2018

Quite a few weak TA carriers appearing now in Victoria, usual British
suspects: 909, 1053, 1089, 1215 and (not so usual) 1341....others are
855, 1107, 1386, 1485,1566.

best wishes,

TP 16 Jan Victoria version  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, January 17 2018

Some improvement in conditions this morning, with HLAZ peaking well
after local sunrise, and apparent Chinese on 837. The occasionally
strong carrier on 846 was also noted, but no audio heard, so
presumably the transmitter had been left on after s/off?

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

774 JOUB woman in Japanese 1517UT

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

1566 HLAZ man in Russian 1640UT was the best strength heard on this
one; was at least at mumble level, and often better, between 1600UT
to after 1700UT

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

594 JOAK woman in Japanese, man on phone, 1540UT
693 JOAB woman in Japanese 1517UT //774
828 JOBB woman in Japanese 1501UT

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)

612 woman talking; English intonation, 1502UT
747 JOIB pop music //774 1458UT
837 man talking Chinese intonation 1517UT
972 HLCA, man and woman talking; Korean?.....heard as late as 1716UT
with man talking

1575 woman talking, Chinese intonation? 1510UT
1593 CNR1 faint female vocal music //6125 1610UT

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

567 603 639 738 918 1134 1188 1287 1314 1323 1386 1458
1539 seemed to be Asian;

846 seemed to be DU

Alberta TPs for 16 January 2018  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, January 17 2018

A bit of an improvement today, with the regulars reaching audio this

594 JOAK Tokyo, JAPAN Man speaking in Japanese at 1331.

693 JOAB Tokyo, JAPAN por, with man in Japanese at 1303.

747 JOIB Sapporo, JAPAN reached audio by 1334 with woman in Japanese, //774

774 JOUB Akita, JAPAN Woman with language lesson heard at 1319.

828 JOBB Osaka, JAPAN The strongest TP at 1320, with woman presenting
language lesson.

1116 4BC Brisbane, AUSTRALIA Very weak, but traces of talk programming
noted at 1357.

1566 HLAZ Jeju, S.KOREA Choir singing a hymn at 1328.

I also noticed that the Kiribati carrier stayed on past 1030 today, and
I had a decent carrier this morning on 846, which makes we wonder if it
was on all night.
