Exotic-Sounding 693 UnID at 1652  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, April 11 2018

Heard this morning (April 10) at 1752 UTC, this station apparently features both a foreign language and exotic music. In a mix with an Australian commercial station (and possibly another co-channel) from 1645-1705. Any ideas or comments would be appreciated https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/94j756mjptm1fuaij381dw2wbsqkre91

630-Radio Cook Islands ID at 0957-Replaced By NZB at 0958  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, April 11 2018

Despite the Kiwi-dollar-swallowing Internet rates here I decided to upload some priority MP3 links. This is the extremely obscure Radio Cook Islands (Rarotonga) with an English ID at 0957, then abruptly switching to Newstalk ZB programming at 0958 on April 8th (which continued all night long until 0600 local (1600 UTC) https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/bqwt5lm0ezhdyqayqkfjj8j8fbirysar

Wednesday, April 11 2018

A demonstration of the wacky New Zealand propagation here in Aitutaki, as the 1 kW Chinese Voice in Auckland pounds in at an S9 level during Kiwi sunset skip https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/5ktyujbq4tvq292b0mbpe2s01jylcjad

This was on the 7.5" loopstick CC Skywave SSB Ultralight alone

Still almost all Asian, but the Chinese were gone. Not much lasted beyond local sunrise, at 1330UT, though both JOHR and HLAZ made a reprise of it well over an hour later.

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

594 JOAK man in Japanese1302UT

828 JOBB English lessons 1255UT

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

774 JOUB English lessons 1255UT //828

972 HLCA two men in Korean 1248UT

1566 HLAZ man in Japanese1308UT; a reprise at 1440UT yielded man talking, Chinese intonation

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

693 JOAB woman talking //828 1301UT

747 JOIB Chinese lessons 1307UT

873 JOGB Chinese lessons 1301UT

1287 JOHR woman in Japanese 1449-50UT, only appearance of this one this morning, long after sunrise

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)

531 JOQG woman talking //594 1302UT; possibly someone else nosing around there also

585 7RN faint ABC fanfare 1300UT

612 woman talking, DU English intonation 1303UT

666 JOBK man and woman talking //594 1304UT

954 woman talking Japnese intonation 1312UT

1116 man talking DU English intonation 1323UT

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

558 603 891 1008 1053 1098 1179 1206 1242 1332 1359 1386 1422 1503 1593 seemed to be Asian;
846 891 909 1017 seemed to be DU

I hear music I'd expect from Bangladesh and a mention of Bangladesh at :09.
