Similar observations here, though with mostly different freqs. Weak
carriers here on just after 0300 on 693, 1386,1413,1458.

As Colin described, a definite switch from Asia to Australia this morning, starting after 1300UT. Again, sure that much was missed.


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


576 2RN interview of man by woman 1357UT; paralleled with 846 a little later

612 4QR man being interviewed by woman //702 1425UT

702 2BL man and woman talking about crusades //738 1414UT

774 3LO man and woman //612 1426UT

828 3GI woman and mantaling //738 1412UT

828 JOBB English lessons 1325UT

873 JOGB English lessons 1411UT


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

531 man in DU English talking about student uniforms 1407-8UT; no idea.

558 island music 1423UT, likely Fiji

594 3WV man talking //612 1440UT

594 JOAK Japanese partying //567 1320UT

738 2NR man talking //747 1429UT

747 4QS man talking //738 and 774 1430UT

846 2RN woman talking //576 1407UT

972 HLCA man in Korean 1359UT, one of the few Asians to appear this late

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

567 JOIK man and woman //594 1320UT

567 4JK man and woman //594 1438UT

693 JOAB English lessons 1331UT

711 HLKA woman in Korean 1329UT

747 JOIB man in Japanese 1405UT

756 RNZ National woman talking //675 1415UT

792 4RN man talking, DU English 1407UT

891 news by woman in DU English 1432UT; at 1430UT, no sign of fanfare, or much else, but likely 5AN

1017 two women talking, one quite emotional island language? 1422UT, likely Tonga

1116 4BC two men DU English 1433UT

1323 CRI female ballad 1433-4 UT, then man in Chinese with flute music, then man in Russian? as it faded


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)

540 4QL checked Colin's supposition, and yes, man and woman //594 1424UT

567 RNZ National woman talking //675 1412UT

585 7RN fanfare at 1400UT, man saying "ABC news"

603 2RN ABC fanfare at 1400UT, nailed at 1417UT with woman talking //585

603 man talking, maybe Korean? single pip at 1400UT

603 R. Waatea man talking //765 1411UT

621 man DU English 1433UT assumed 3RN, no parallels just then

675 RNZ National piano music, then woman talking //756 1351UT

765 R. Kahungunu woman talking //603 1403UT

837 4RK man talking //828 1415UT

855 4QO/4QB man and woman //774 1425UT, piano music underneath?

909 relaxed femal pop music 1411UT Star?

936 woman talking, DU English intonation 1430UT

963 man talking DU English intonation not //909 1412UT

1008 man talking rapidly DU English intonation 1425UT, racing?

1107 man talking DU English intonation? another man on phone 1340UT

1287 woman and man in Japanese? 1334UT

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

657 873 1242 1566 1575 seemed to be Asian;
639 1026 seemed to be DU


best wishes,

Nick

October 21st - the Thunder from Down-under West Coast DU - Victoria  View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 21 2018

IRCA
Listened from 1315 on -- through to sunrise - and in an incredible
turn-around that took mere minutes, the dial flipped from the "Rising Sun"
to the "Outback" in a handful of heart-beats... around 1335 to be exact...

UTC KHZ STATION COMMENTS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
1321 585 JOPG Hokkaido // NHK1 // to 594 and 666 Khz with Japanese
1326 819 KCBS DPRK - Stirring Korean chorale followed by strident YL rant
1341 576 UNID - EE Murmurs - back at 1400 UTC with "5-6"-pips and
announcements
*1347 531 ABC? Bouncy and danceable music - felt // to 567 Khz (stress on
felt...) with Beatles "Let it be" at 1350 - back at 1406 with EE OM.*
1352 675 RNZ (t) - deeply earnest and husky YL whispers between Piano solo
tracks - quite good levels at times
1401 756 RNZ (t) - EE News by YL delivered in the most sincere style -
almost imagine her tapping ash from a thin cigarette into a brass ash tray
while she adjusts her horn rimmed glasses.
1403 774 3LO ABC Melbourne - EE News as read by OM - feeling somewhat // to
837 (might have been a flight of fancy...)
1407 567 EE YL lady with some mighty succinct diction - assuming RNZ by the
immediate flow of EE around adjacent split channels.
1408 594 3WV Horsham AUS (t) EE OM in Harris-tweed "At 'four-deen minutes
past the hour we'll..." pretty solidly // to 612 Khz. Ripper.
1410 585 UNID ABC - Deadly serious DU YL
1411 765 UNID DU sounding EE OM without the slightly hint of
disingenuousness... cannot say I've ever heard DU audio here.
1413 774 ABC 3LO Melbourne - EE YL/OM slightly more informal interview - at
really good levels.
1414 828 ABC (t) EE Chat during a couple of passes - easy // 774 Khz at
1417 UTC
*1420 540 ABC(t) EE Chat which "felt" (see note above about "Felt") // to
774 Khz - a very maybe - with very similar back/forth huffy-puffy OM-YL
cadence.*
1422 612 ABC 4QR Brisbane - "BrisVegas" wins the round this AM with the
level best belly busting signal - could have heard this on a crystal or
regenerative receiver. Boom!
1426 1017 A3Z (t) OM in Island language - the only really clear Island
signal this morning (if we discount the big open carrier on 1098 khz)

Technical Note: I have a really stubborn and annoying point-source
noise/buzz that ruins the bottom 50 khz of the medium wave band that I have
discovered my Misek|Lankford|Ratzlaff Phaser can handily notch out leaving
the DX a clear window - very, very helpful.

*DRAKE R8 - WEST FLAG - 80 to 10 ENDFED By MyAntennas.Com that is largely
Omni-directional BUT may influence my West Flag some.*
