TP 8 Jul Victoria version.  View Printable Version 
Monday, July 09 2018

IRCA
Mostly Asian this morning.

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

JOUB came close


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

774 JOUB man in Japanese 1135-8UT, would have been very readable without the 770 splatter.

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

747 JOIB man in Japanese 1142UT, //774 at 1144UT, but weaker then

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)

774 woman talking, DU English intonation 1225UT

972 man talking, possibly Korean? 1128UT

1566 slow male vocal 1125-27UT; likely HLAZ?

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

594 828 891 1188 1197 1287 seemed to be Asian;
756 1017 1098 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

Nick

KAILUA KONA RECEPTION IN MARCH  View Printable Version 
Sunday, July 08 2018

IRCA
Pete,

Thanks for posting the Pacific Island MP3's from your recent trip to Kona, on Hawaii's big island.
Kona has always provided favorable Pacific island results for Colin, Craig and me, probably because of its location on the southwest coast of the island, relatively far away from the RF zoo of Honolulu. For a DXer primarily interested in TP-DX from Asia and the Pacific, it also has the advantage of a relatively high ridge of volcanoes running from north to south on the island, which tends to reduce transoceanic signals from the east.
Honolulu QRM still can rear its noisy head, though. It wasn't until I went to the Cook Islands (2600 miles due south) that I was able to fully escape the splatter from 650-KPRP and 690-KHNR, and hear stations like 657-AIR and 693-Bangladesh.

RFC - NCC-1 or NCC-2  View Printable Version 
Sunday, July 08 2018

IRCA
I have the DX NCC-1 and have used for several years. It is well built. It
is large, much larger than say a Quantum phasor. I have had good results
with it. I have phased beverages, DHDL, D-KAZ, K9AY array with 4 square,
and most recently using it with dx engineering arrv verticals. The NCC-2
allow for optimized performance with specific filters for different bands.
