Colin and Walt,

Colin is quite right about the aurora-enhanced signal of 846-Kiribati tonight. The Puyallup valley is a notorious DU-dead zone, and the IBOC pest 850-KHHO is only 4 air miles away from my DXing spot. Despite this 846-Kiribati made it through with its best-ever audio here (fair) at 0720 UTC (26 minutes ago).

Definitely not up to Kona or even Victoria quality, but I'll take it

TP 19 Feb Victoria version  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, February 20 2018

IRCA
More blandness in this morning's DX, with a couple of DUs, and relatively
low signal strength overall. By sunrise, most of these had gone to bed.


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

not today

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

594 JOAK man in Japanese 1506UT
774 JOUB woman in Japanese 1435UT


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


747 JOIB man in Japanese //774 1515UT
828 JOBB man in Portuguese 1441UT //774
972 HLCA man in Korean 1438UT
1566 HLAZ man in Chinese briefly this level 1444UT

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 music //594, then woman talking 1435UT
576 woman talking, DU English intonation 1444UT, 2RN?
738 man talking DU English? 1439UT, 2NR?
891 JOHK woman talking //594 1513UT


Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or
ravaged by splatter)
558 585 603 693 864 1134 1143 1575 1593 seemed to be Asian;
531 612 675 756 846 855 1017 1116 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

Nick

Just got home from a delivery and at 06:11, 1017 fighting it out with 846
for supremacy, with 1017 winning out. Sounds like maybe RA news (or maybe
RNZI?) in English. 846 a little weaker here. 73,....Walt Salmaniw,

I slept in today and let the SDR record 1155-1510, which turned out to
be a smart move.

Conditions this morning were decidedly mediocre compared to the past two
days. The usual big guns were there: 594 693 747 774 828 972 and 1566.Â
They all had moments of good audio, but nothing spectacular. There was
something on 1593 trying unsuccessfully to get past my 1590 local, but
that was the only exception.
