1530 VOA Sao Tome at sign-on and sign-off  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, January 16 2018

IRCA
I was wondering the same thing about listenership back in December while
cruising in the western Injun Ocean.  909 (and 4930) from Botswana
thumped in at night on a stock PL380 while on a circuit
Mauritius/Seychelles/Zanzibar/Comoros/Reunion/Mauritius.

Then '60 Minutes' on CBS a week or so back were tut-tutting about
'RT/Russia Today' complete with 'Larry King Live' being available on
cable...

I get a kick out of those anmts. The guy who recorded them LONG ago is no longer with us - Frank Oliver. The U. S. Information Service is long gone as are 'cultural centers.' And the zip on the address given - 20547 - hasn't been used in decades.

Oh well, it's not like anybody's actually listening ... except us DXers. ;-)

A couple of days earlier I had the other end of VOA 1530's broadcast day. WJDM (NJ) sign-off announcement in English, mention of Cantico Nuevo program. VOA Sao Tome then is audible with its sign-off announcement right after. 13 JAN at 2200 UTC / 5 p.m. EST.

774 Japan was caught with several seconds of very poor audio, female
speaking at 1428 utc. Otherwise just traces of audio on 693 Japan and
972 S Korea between 1407-1440 utc. Hets faded earlier today, mostly all
gone after 1440. Sunrise 1424 utc.

weak TA carriers  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, January 16 2018

IRCA
This wouldn't be newsworthy except that there's recently been some
geomagnetic activity which one would expect would shut down paths
from northern Europe to western Canada.

Not entirely so, as carriers have been heard this evening on 909 1089
and 1215kHz from about 0400UT....erratic and weak to be sure, but
definitely there.

best wishes,

Nick
