more TA hints  View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 18 2018

Quite a few TA carriers heard this evening in Victoria, but quite odd
ones: 603, 864, 954 1116, 1413 for examples. Although the "usual"
1215 was noted, it didn't develop into anything; 1386 was the star of
the show with a good enough carrier at times to show audio
traces. The carrier was cut at 0500UT, pointing to Lithuania, so
something to chase for another day.

best wishes,

TP 17 Jan Victoria version  View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 18 2018

Nothing much in post sunrise enhancements this morning, and except
for a number of carriers, this was mostly a "big gun" session.

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

594 JOAK jazzy clarinet solo, 1547UT (weaker Japanese talk earlier)
774 JOUB man in Japanese 1555UT; s/off anthem and chimes considerably
weaker 1600-1605UT

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

828 JOBB man in Japanese 1523UT

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

1566 HLAZ woman in Chinese 1458UT

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 weather report //594 1558UT
639 CNR1 man talking //6125 1526UT
693 JOAB man in Japanese 1535UT //774
972 woman talking, possibly Korean 1533UT

Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or
ravaged by splatter)

558 603 666 747 837 855 873 891 981 1134 1575 seemed to be Asian;
738 846 seemed to be DU

ZNS Nassau  View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 18 2018

During my Caribbean cruise (which I am writing up at a leisurely pace because of my scribbling), ZNS was not exactly overwhelming once you got out of the Bahamas. In addition, it throws out a lot of garbage at various places between 1500-1570kHz. Of particular note, it is responsible for a 1kHz tone around 1520 which on one evening clashed with the 1kHz het caused by the Saudi. I noted the same thing last year but at the time didnât relate it to ZNS.

> ZNS is using a two tower array with about 110 k watts going south and a null to the north to protect 1540 in Albany, NY. From time to time they will go non-d at half power. On a regular basis they have a .5 mv signal into Inagua, the southernmost island in the Bahamas. On any given day they get a fair copy during the day on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.
