1170 Coast to Coast UnID from USA in Cook Islands  View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 19 2018

IRCA
Thanks Todd,

KFAQ sounds logical to me if it carries the Coast to Coast program.

Oddly enough almost all the USA signals received in the Cook Islands came from California, with the exception of 1160-KSL (which blasted in at an S9+++ level on one night). Since I was DXing in the DU area, maybe these signals should be called UA's (Up Above)?

Any ideas on the station identity would be appreciated-- thanks.

Gary:

KFAQ carries "Coast to Coastâ at 0500-0900 UTC, and their ID slogan is âTalk Radio 1170â.

Very good catch.

UnID Oz Pest on 693 kHz  View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 19 2018

Agree with Bruce and Chuck.... and there's also a commercial starting at
6:05 for a law firm (Morris and Associates?) with "four locations around
Melbin" at 6:31 plus indistinct dub-dub-dub address just before the jingle.

This prolific Australian pest station was the dominant performer on 693 KHz during the sunrise sessions in the Cook Islands, frequently pounding in at S9 levels but never seeming to provide any identity clues. It had a real talent for snarling Bangladesh at critical moments, although the latter did also break through at S9 levels occasionally. In this 7-minute MP3 recorded at 1653 UTC on April 10th Bangladesh starts off in an S9 snarl with the Yankee-accented Radio Sport in Dunedin (relaying Fox Sport Network from the USA), but the Oz pest station takes over at an S9 level around the 4 minute point. It carries numerous ads and public service announcements (all apparently useless for identity clues) until an ID at 7:12 into the recording at the 1700 TOH. https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/ltl5f8aeo5w2qm3bf2n02x06xsu9fb9r

Unfortunately my ability to decipher Oz English is limited-- any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

At 6"36 I hear a "Talkin' Melbourne" jingle.
