Should have sent that to the list. Folks in the area DF'd it to Ft.
Eustis later on, so Fort Rucker is no longer considered its location.

Some actual real audio this morning, all from Down Under, and down lower on the band; upper band Asian carriers only.

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


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

612 4QR woman on phone to man 1530UT; had noted ABC fanfare and news on 1500UT, but weaker.

702 2BL man in DU English 1509UT had been parallel with 612 earlier,

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

the above passing through

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)

576 woman talking, DU English intonation 1507UT

594 3WV man talking //612 1443UT

738 2NR teletalk //612 1522UT

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

1287 1458 1503 1566 1575 seemed to be Asian;
891 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

I recall the days in the 1970's when we had a couple of active foreign DX'ers in South Florida, it was often

the case that when we had good TA's up here, they didn't. At the time the thought was that their signal

paths were longer, and their location close to the tropics had a higher atmospheric noise level.

Great list Mark!

I found a Tech report somewhere of the TOP Kiwi WebSDR's on the Planet
based solely on average S/N ratio...
and oddly, one of the ugliest ones was either in Indonesia or India where
the environmental noise level
was between S9 and 10DB over S9.

One would ask: Why bother installing such an expensive piece of kit is such
a crappy listening environment?
