TP 16 Sep Victoria version.  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 18 2018

IRCA
FYI, Nick: Pyongyang Broadcasting and KCBS sometimes run parallel programming for special events or live broadcasts or live theater/cultural shows and/or political-related speeches, especially in the afternoon hours or into the evening hours (Korean time), sometimes later, such as the big New Years broadcast and other big events like the 70th anniversary celebration last week.

The rural stations, no matter what network they are listed as part of, often will broadcast Pyongyang instead of KCBS as a time-share, but 657 is the main Pyongyang Broadcasting signal and 819 is the main KCBS signal, no matter what. 855 does not stray from its listed network as it broadcasts in a more highly populated area, not a rural area like those areas east and north of Pyongyang or in the south near Pyonggang (not a typo), north of Cheorwon.

So if you ever hear any of them running parallel programming, there is a special event or something! I remember back in late 2015 when I was confirming which network each frequency was airing since a lot of info on the Internet was flat out wrong and every night I would go out at different times and listen and jot down who is parallel to who and I started finding half of them didnât match the listed network and then the next night, they would, but only half of them, etc., and it got ridiculous until I realized that they were time sharing and that whatever the schedule was, if there even was one, it was too complicated for me to figure out reliably.

So donât let it fool you. Itâs darn obvious when you hear a DPRK station usually, whatever itâs airing, and they only use certain frequencies. Iâm curious how many lately have heard any of the higher powered Pyongyang jammers, like 1467.

At some point, one has to throw in the towel, and let some of the DX get away, I'm afraid. What a snorter of a morning. I don't think anyone raised power, just the ionosphere letting its hair down, finally.

855 Pyongyang Bangsong; man in Korean 1301UT, snagged a N. Korean parallel later; this had 3 and one pips on the hour, sounding more sluggish than the usual NHK/KBS set.

657 Pyongyang Bangsong choral music //819 (though not listed as Pyongyang Bangsong) and 855 1318-9UT

 

Sept 17th - Video Highlights - West Coast TP's - What was on 1368 khz?  View Printable Version

Colin, it sounds like Nei Menggu. I canât confirm obviously, but the song has a very Chinese pop style to it, but not so much Japanese or Korean (there are no 1368s in Korea, by the way). Plus, Shazam is very quick to identify almost any Chinese tune you throw at it, as I have confirmed with many hundreds of song matches from my own Chinese DX, even very obscure songs that I canât even find MP3s of and not even a hint of them on YouTube or anywhere. However, it tends to be totally useless with Mongolian songs, even Mongolian-language songs released in China (i.e. Inner Mongolia), which always was a hint for me when I was hearing Inner Mongolia Es on FM when nothing at all was giving me a match. This is why I believe, without any proof since I canât identify the song, that it was Nei Menggu. At least itâs some idea of your signal origin...

One of the best signals this AM -- but from where?

interesting - music but no speaking...

Quick 6 minute video of morning highlights - it was a GOOD morning I
think...

Sept 17th - Video Highlights - West Coast TP's - What was on 1368 khz?  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 18 2018

IRCA
Iâd forgotten that we have an expert on the ground! Thank you so much. Iâm going to be âmentally bookmarkingâ this channel for daily checks.

My West Flag still needs some adjustments but itâs performing well with the Wellbrook FLG100 â Iâve got a VACTROL running all the time but (in my case) I just null down my local pest CFAX 1070 and run with that - and not play with the variable termination too much.

I think Nick would agree that the likes of the Philippines (and Indonesia...) are more likely a bit later in the season.

Things look good so far.

Thanks Chris!
