ESPN 1490 puzzle  View Printable Version

I checked this list
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ESPN_Radio_affiliates) and found
14 stations on 1490 and one on 102.9, but no burgs. Good luck!

Search the 'net for ESPN 102.9 and 1490. No luck determining whom I
heard.

Anyone?

1053 Korea (all) off the air  View Printable Version

I have been tuning the Japanese WebSDR's for weeks now -- no sign of any jamming on 1053.

Yanbian is pretty powerful and would usually come in strong in the absence of the other stations (when the jammers started turning off after 11:30pm instead of going 24 hours like they used to). They're probably your carrier if you see one, at least if you're talking East Asia. I personally never heard anything else on 1053.

OK Chris. 1053 was in this morning with music here, but I'll need
to check the recording to see if there was any talk, and to maybe
snag the offset(s) if I can. But the few times I've heard anything,
it's sounded Japanese, and the rest of the band conditions at the
time have been Japanese. Plus, this morning, the carrier didn't
sound outrageously loud compared with the audio.

best wishes,

Nick

Thanks Chris; I suspected that might be the case, as the beehive
jammer had been so regular here before 1400UT.

But...has anyone left a carrier on? I'm not hearing much audio here
(and usually it sounds like Japan if I do), but unless JOAR is really
undermodulated, someone still is putting out a good carrier.

Limited TP DX on the road in Pirt Townsend, WA  View Printable Version 
Saturday, March 25 2017

IRCA
Post sunrise audio here in Victoria, Craig. Check 972 and 1566 if
you've gotten the radio working again. 1242, 1287 and 954 are also
possibilities...

best wishes,
Nick

For this trip I brought a nearly new Erin E1 and a Quantum Loop to
do some TP dxing. This morning started out on a promising note from
within a ground floor hotel room facing east. JOUB was heard with
weak audio @1240. Man and woman speaking. EE lesson perhaps? Hets
were heard on 594, 693, 702, 747 and 828. Then the display on my E1
went totally blank. That put a damper on this mornings' dx session.
I also brought a Tecsun PL-310. It did not have the horsepower to
elicit any TP signals from within the hotel room. I will be staying
on the coast of WA and the coast of OR for a couple of days in each
location. Hopefully both my radio and dx conditions will improve!
