IRCA CARIBBEAN REPORT, Part 2  View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 21 2018

IRCA
890 - UNID 12/2 10am EST between the Cay and PR. Seemed to give calls, HIâ (I missed the last two letters). Would appear to have been R. 8-90, La Consentida, Mao, DR
900 - CBC St. Michael, Barbados poor level 12/3 9am from St. Thomas. Signal level increased as we headed south but didnât hold up that well as we headed west from Grenada. A per ads, CBC has a monopoly in the communications business. Reggae Christmas carols were fun!
920 - SS local-like in Grenada. Presumed YVOX Porlamar. 12/5 9am.
940 - WINZ Miami - best FL signal at Princess Cay. No Cuban under/over it. Interesting because WINZ has an STA for 25kw night because of Cuban interference.
1000 - Cuban bubble wobbler. Only here one night (11/30, 4 hours out of Ft. Lauderdale). It was also noted here last year.
1030 - Port-au-Prince, R. Ginen. Taped 12/2 10am (heading to PR) but no ID heard.
1060 - WIXC Titusville is back on relaying WWBA-820 and yes, they do give an ID a minute or two before the WWBA ID. Heard in Orlando, St. Thomas 9am 12/3, Martinique (very weak 12/4 11a) and also off of north central Cuba 11am 12/9.
1090 - Deportes, Caracas, one of the earlier YVs to boom in as we approached Grenada. Apparently YVSZ Caracas.
1130 - My hearing must be grim because just as I did while in Boston in Sept., I heard this as âRadio Cinco" 12/3 10:15pm from south of PR.
1150 - âCMX R. Guaymasâ is what I heard 11/30 9pm 4 hrs. out of Ft. Laudedale but that doesnât hold up in deference to WRTHâs R. Bayamo, Entronque Bueycito.
1160 - Caribbean Radio Lighthouse, St. Johnâs, Antigua & Barbuda fairly good in Grenada but not memorable from anywhere else.
1200 - It sounded like R. Pinto to me but more than likely was R. Tiempo, Caracas, 12/6, 9a, 40 miles E of Bonaire.
1240 - Radio Maria, Santo Domingo, DR. No âde la alta graciaâ ever heard. Good level between PR & St. Thomas, 10pm EST 12/2 and 12/3 9am AST in St. Thomas. It was heard quite a ways as we headed south. It was also surprisingly strong as we left Grenada for Bonaire. The web site says (essentially) variety programming but all I ever heard was religious chanting and hymns.
1260 - WISO Ponce relaying WAPA 12/8 9am between Haiti/Cuba
1260 - SS w/Christmas music around 9a 12/6 nearing Bonaire. Presumably Caracas.

Just the Japanese big guns along with Korea on 972 today:

594 JOAK Tokyo, JAPAN Man in Japanese at 1401.

693 JOAB Tokyo, JAPAN Woman in Japanese at 1404.

747 JOIB Sapporo, JAPAN Woman in Japanese at 1404, //693

774 JOUB Akita, JAPAN Woman in Japanese at 1402.

828 JOBB Osaka, JAPAN Very weak, but traces of man in Japanese at 1432.

972 HLCA Danjing, S.KOREA Man in Korean at 1402.

Rather unusually during mediocre conditions, 603 had a solid carrier
this morning, very close to audio at times. Also out of the norm - 1566
never reached audio today.

1330 WHGM Classic hits and call letters while in the car. Not a new
reception but I'd add it to my daytime records if I still maintained that
list.

WSPQ Springville NY is now off the air, so I've been watching this
channel. Dayime reception now is usually WEBO Owego NY. At sunset and at
night I've been hearing WBTM Danville VA, WESR Onley VA, WFNN Erie PA
(surprisingly poor during the day), WHBL Sheboygan WI, WWRV New York NY
(easy to spot with Spanish), WHAZ Troy NY, and most dominant at night has
been WYRD Greenville SC. I'm sure there's more to be found, especially if
I could find some time in the late afternoon to listen.

Seems to be a lot of enhanced daytime these days which makes it lots of fun
to dx.
Greenville SC was a semi-regular with KFH back in the early 80s in Cedar
Falls under KWWL.

TP 19 Jan Victoria version  View Printable Version 
Saturday, January 20 2018

IRCA
An odd morning, with mostly big guns, but a couple of Chinese as
well, plus a brief pre-sunrise lift, and HLAZ not showing its nose
until 40 minutes after sunrise.


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

594 JOAK woman in Japanese on phone, man in studio 15191UT


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

639 CNR1 man in Chinese //6125 1544UT
774 JOUB man and woman in Japanese 1541UT, during pre-sunrise lift
that lasted only a few moments


972 HLCA man and woman in Korean 1543UT


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

693 JOAB woman and man in Japanese //774 1503UT
747 JOIB man and woman in Japanese 1514UT //828
1566 HLAZ assumed. Man mumbling with Russian intonation from 1639UT
on, fading up and down, peaking 1702UT with solo male hymn. Not heard earlier

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)

567 JOIK woman talking //594 1501UT
828 JOBB man in Japanese //747 1531UT
837 woman and man talking, sounded like Chinese (definitely not //594), CNR5?
873 JOGB woman talking //774 1504UT

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

603 738 891 918 945 seemed to be Asian;
612 738 846 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

Nick
