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

IRCA
Thanks for the detailed DU-DX report, Colin. As is typical here at this Asian-favoring location, the band suddenly went silent when Korea, Japan and China tanked this morning around 1330. But with the Rockwork cliff file review still continuing from August, who misses the DU's?

<<< *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.* >>>
Most likely 4KZ, an ocean coast powerhouse with a soft rock oldie format. Once in a blue moon 531-PI plays music like this with an English announcer, but that's extremely rare.

<<< 1411 765 UNID DU sounding EE OM without the slightly hint of
disingenuousness... cannot say I've ever heard DU audio here. >>>
The Maori-format Radio Kahungunu is a real overachiever for 2.5 kW, easily capable of hitting S9 levels at the Rockwork cliff. I know that Nick sometimes receives it in Victoria. It's // 603-Radio Waatea during our sunrise enhancement (another Maori net station that shows up for Nick in Victoria).

Audio on 783  View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 21 2018

IRCA
Nigel,

I am just getting home from the 17th annual LBI DXpedition at the New
Jersey shore. We had Syria on 783, so maybe that's your Arabic sounding
station there. It was parallel to its webstream.

73,
Dave

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...
