TP 6 Mar Victoria version.  View Printable Version 
Thursday, March 07 2019

IRCA
Shrinkage of signals is the best way of putting it.


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


nope


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

and nope


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


too much to ask for


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 2RN folky vocal music, barely there, but //585 with a slight offset, 1445UT

585 7RN vocal mx // with even weaker 576 1445UT

612 4QR woman talking //1548 on Brisbane KiwiSDR 1446UT; also note earlier and weaker, //702 at 1412UT

702 2BL man talking //612 1412UT

1566 woman and man talking, Chinese intonation 1354UT; reprise but weaker at 1426UT


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

594 747 774 1593 seemed to be Asian;

891 1017 1098 seemed to be DU


best wishes,

Steve,
I have had a lot of success with this email forum,
https://groups.io/g/swskeds
You will need to join the group to get access to the excel files which are
undated every week, this is by far the best around for current information
of stations on the air.
Try it...

Thanks

Steve, I'm not sure if there are any SWL equivalents to the ON4KST chat
pages...maybe someone knows but there are a lot of good online resources
that are kept up-to-date and will help you to figure out what SW stations
you may be hearing:

https://www.short-wave.info/

and

http://www.eibispace.de/ ...you can download or just keep this page open
while you listen...look for the eibi.txt file as well as the README.txt file

Yes, sounded like "SB Nation", so that's gotta be it. A relog. Thanks,
gents. I was trying to parallel Seattle and Tijuana to no avail. A huge
pile of noise on 1090, such that 1090 was better in LSB than USB, though
that left an ear piercing het from 1089. Talk Sport 1089 was better than
the signal on 1090. WBAL returned before 0300 EST. Jim Renfrew
