Alberta TPs for 24 March 2017  View Printable Version 
Saturday, March 25 2017

The audio from HLAZ was pretty distinctive at that time,
Niget....considerably more of a hellfire and damnation preacher than
is usually heard on the Japanese program.....so audio traces might
have conveyed a man insistently asking for your attention.

best wishes,

Another morning of very minimal signals, and all from DU.

702 2BL Sydney, AUSTRALIA Poor, with woman talking at 1259, then time
pips and ABC news fanfare.

1566 unID Traces of talk at 1258

Traces of music at 1201

1701.03 unID Islamic Voice Radio Melbourne, AUSTRALIA
Man talking at 1202. Another brief spike at 1301 with Koran recitations.

Interestingly 1701 provided the clearest audio, albeit only briefly.
Several other of the most common DUs close to audio (612,774,1116).
Asia was again missing (though 1566 could have been HLAZ).

Synchronous AM Boosters Could Help Revive Senior Band  View Printable Version 
Friday, March 24 2017

It should probably be noted in this discussion that synchronous AM
transmitters have been in use in Europe for decades on the AM band. There
were and are various mixes of low power and low and high power AM's
operating on the same channel with the same programming. Back in the 1970's
there were a greater number of groupings of low power ( 250-1000 watt )
stations in the UK and Spain in particular utilizing this method, and in
many cases those signals would be audible under good TA conditions here in

Usually, these sounded very much like a single transmitter here. Whether
this was because we heard only one station ( the most powerful the highest
antenna or the most favorable tx location could be debated ) or whether the
synchronization was that good is impossible to know some 40 years on.

Based on this, plus the ( unmentioned in the article ) synchronous WBZ/WBZA
experiement with newer technology which remained into the 1960's, as well
as the KOB/KKOB setup in NM, plus a few others, there shouldn't be any
reason why this wouldn't be a viable option technically.

That said however, the low cost of erecting and maintaining an FM
translator is probably a momre cost-effective solution.
