Exotic Sunrise DX Targets in Hawaii- the Japanese "Cheat Sheet"  View Printable Version 
Friday, March 15 2019

IRCA
<<< Except for 990 (with an assumed strong null towards us), they've all (not just some) been heard in Newfoundland.
I'd add Saudi Arabia 1521 to the list. Perhaps UAE also. >>>
Chuck,
Yes, these are all fairly common in Newfoundland, but receiving any of them in Hawaii would be at ranges at least twice as great, with all of Asia (and the local Hawaii QRM) in play at the same time. I guess that's what makes it so challenging. 702-BBC in Oman was received at 8,400 miles, with 6 other transoceanic DX stations logged on the same 702 kHz frequency during the trip.
<<< Good luck with the Hong Kong QRM. I expect it will be tough. >>>
Well, Hong Kong is one of the worst possible DXing venues on the planet, with a wicked combination of severe overcrowding and the highest real estate prices on the planet. But since my Hong Kong Chinese wife insisted that we go there for a week, at least I should give DXing my best shot. Who knows-- maybe 567-Laos and 918-RNK will be daytimers?

Of course this is something that I should have done prior to the November Hawaii DXpedition-- but hindsight is always 20/20.

One of them (702-BBC) was actually received in Hawaii at good strength last November, but that was by blind luck.

> East coast TA-DXers will probably recognize several of these as big gun regulars, but the challenge of tracking them down in Hawaii during a "hit and run" DXpedition is likely to be a real thrill. Hawaii local QRM is tough, but that only adds to the thrill of the chase. At least we have a "master plan" of long range exotic targets-- the first step for DXing success. Having an experienced TA-DXer like Chris in our group is another plus. If and when we can track down a local Kauai island contact to store gear for us in between trips, the "Frequent Flyer" DXers could become quite a bit more ambitious and fanatical.
