6070 The temerity of the ionosphere.  View Printable Version 
Monday, March 11 2019

IRCA
CFRX 6070 booming in at 0220 UTC -sunset give or take.

Goes to show that the âstandardâ old bands of 49 through 19 meters can be devoid of all but the raspy bible screamers all day long, then boom, up comes something you donât hear every day.

- here on the WCNA... the Worldâs SW fringe area... always.

XHDATA D-808  View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 10 2019

IRCA
I don't normally buy stuff from Ebay. But when I do, it's a XHDATA D-808 that
isn't legally sold in North America. Cost $ AUD 118 including shipping from
Australia via Singapore. It arrived by Canada Post on Friday, less than 2
weeks after I ordered it. It's a little bigger than the C Crane Skywave, so
the C Crane will still be my go-to radio for road trips and for travel
where every cubic millimeter of backpack space is crucial. The Skywave also
has the Weather band, which is good to have for traveling, and runs on AA
batteries, which are sold virtually everywhere. Jury is still out on the
D-808's lithium battery. I have no idea how long the it will last, how
often it will need to be recharged (so far, it doesn't seem like it will
need to be plugged in every night like my phone) and how many recharges it
can handle before it craps out and needs to be replaced. I don't think
lithium batteries like the one in the D-808 are easy to find or are even
sold in North America.

The D-808's user manual is written in pretty poor Chinglish. But this is
non unusual with many made-in-China products. It doesn't come with
headphones or a charger. Only a USB charging cable.

So far, after using it only a couple days, the D-808 has a slight edge over
the C Crane on AM, a bigger edge on SW. But neither will beat my 1978
Panasonic RF-2200.

TP 9 Mar Victoria version.  View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 10 2019

IRCA
As Craig mentioned, things started looking up this morning


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

567 JOIK //594 1349UT, brief peak

594 JOAK 1434UT

774 JOUB 1346UT

972 HLCA 1427UT


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


747 JOIB 1349UT

828 JOBB 1350UT

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

603 HLSA //558 on Korean SDR 1433UT; heard earlier also and //558 heard here

639 CNR1 man and woman in Chinese 1415UT

1566 HLAZ 1355UT man in Chinese


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)

558 HLQH //603 ballad 1345UT

612 man and woman DU English intonation 1439UT

666 JOBK //594 woman talking, 1435UT, much splash

702 NHK2 music //774 1435UT

711 man, rapid talk; Korean intonation? 1435UT

873 JOGB 1429UT //774


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

657 675 693 738 864 891 918 945 954 981 1098 1323 1593 seemed to be Asian;

738 seemed to be DU


best wishes,

Nick
