I'm very sorry to hear this, Colin. The memories of your close relationship with your Mom are very touching, and sooner or later we all need to face such a day. I hope that you and Andrea can find comfort and support from your friends and family at this difficult time.

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

IRCA
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!

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

IRCA
Around 0845 UTC (time approximate) on April 12th this 1170 kHz station was received on Aitutaki in the Cook Islands (4,600 miles distant from the west coast) broadcasting the "Coast to Coast" program with a "Radio 1170" ID at 32 seconds into the recording. Any ideas on the station identity would be appreciated-- thanks.
