Sunday, October 21 2018

IRCA
Here in Alberta today wasn't up to yesterday's standard, but still
wasn't bad. The big guns from Japan really excelled today, but a lot of
other signals had solid carriers that never quite reached audio.

576 2RN Sydney, AUSTRALIA Man talking at 1342. Weak, but very little
splatter to deal with.

585 7RN Hobart, AUSTRALIA Talk by man and woman at 1339

594 JOAK Tokyo, JAPAN Man in Japanese at 1328

612 4QR Brisbane, AUSTRALIA Talk by a man at 1333

684 2KP Kempsey, AUSTRALIA ABC news fanfare at 1400

693 JOAB Tokyo, JAPAN Super signal at 1300 with time pips, then man in
Japanese

702 2BL Sydney, AUSTRALIA Woman talking with caller on the phone

738 2NR Grafton, AUSTRALIA Country vocal by a woman at 1341

747 JOIB Sapporo, JAPAN Man and woman presenting language lesson at 1322

774 JOUB Akita, JAPAN Not quite at 693's level with man in Japanese at 1258

792 4RN Brisbane, AUSTRALIA Talk by a woman at 1340

1548 4QD Emerald, AUSTRALIA End of vocal by a woman, then ABC news
fanfare at 1400

I gotta admit - I am stumped today -

I checked all the hardware on my WEST FLAG and my 80-10 end fed which does
feed me some good OMNI directional
signals --

I think if tonight shapes up as a GOOD TA Night, I am going to BUNDLE up
and grab a TSA Friendly
RSFSL and sit in the back yard with one of my ULR's

The other night the TA's were so HOT that I was hearing the HETS on a Sony
2010 BAREFOOT in the bedroom...

As others have noticed, it was a pleasantly lively morning at the dials
with a combination of stellar Japanese, Korean and Chinese reception -

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 10-20 (Conclusion)  View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 21 2018

IRCA
Beware of the subliminal sub-carriers on the 657 Organ music --
You will be saluting the great one as your brain is rinsed of all reason...
and depending on how you vote come mid-terms will determine the amount of
"conversion"
that has taken place.

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 10-20 (Conclusion)  View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 21 2018

IRCA
Thanks again to Colin for his extremely detailed TP assessment this morning. Here in Puyallup, China Vs. Korea was the main attraction around 1400, with the fight card covering three main matches-- 603, 657 and 738. All three of the frequencies ended up in wild snarls from 1400-1415, with 603-China, 657-China and 738-HLKG all significantly stronger than yesterday.

With such a wacky situation it was fascinating to park on one of the "fight frequencies" for a few minutes, and see which contestant could gain the upper hand. On 603 HLSA was clearly dominant until 1400, when China rose up to make the frequency a real battleground. In a similar way 657-Pyongyang was practically alone until 1400, when the talk-oriented 657-China (Henan?) gave its bizarre music some serious competition. 738-BEL2 was loud and alone until around 1400, when its KBS co-channel HLKG went on a serious romp, resulting in the most potent TP snarl of the entire fight card around 1410. Other Chinese stations dropped off somewhat in comparison to yesterday-- most notably 639-CNR1 (getting out of the LA splatter for only about a minute around 1415) and the CRI stations on 963, 1017 and 1044. The Japanese big guns were around, but as usual in this valley they weren't anything special. With the exception of another 5" Frequent Flyer FSL deployed in the back yard to receive 657 kHz from 1130 to 1430 (and once again coming away with some potent and wacky S9 signals from Pyongyang) all the DXing during the "main attraction" of this morning's fight card was done at the local Peach Park. Despite the slight propagation drop off in comparison to yesterday, it was definitely worth the price of admission (a few hours of lost sleep).


603 China-HLSA The soft-voiced Chinese lady manages to slowly gain the upper hand over KBS2's Korean pop music at 1404. China (Hulun Buir?) came out of nowhere around 1400 https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/yok042q4eu37a614tew8a17a5ouyldxy

738 BEL2-HLKG Taiwan's female Chinese speaker slowly has the frequency taken over by the Korean music at 1408 https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/0m8cvsofsxpfx97drire4hhzuse69ivm

73 and Good DX,

Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)
