Craig Barnes' TP-DXpedition to Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii (Part One)  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 29 2017

IRCA


No RTI on 603 kHz; they moved from 603 to 612 kHz and then closed it.

73, Mauno

549 is a straits-area dialect (Fujian, Guangdong area). Very likely
CNR-5.

603 Neither of these is KBS Happy FM in Hwaseong (Korea). There is a
lot of noise, so I can only say that much. You're dealing with a
Chinese station here. Likely CRI in Hainan, but could also be RTI. I'm
unsure if RTI is still on the air on 603. Their other station at this
site was knocked off permanently from typhoon damage. But absolutely
NOT Hwaseong.

657 Yes, this is Pyongyang.

693 This is Portuguese and it's Brazilian Portuguese. My cousin in
Brazil confirmed this fact, but no more specific than that.

765 CNR-5 news jingle (if you could call it that) is heard

783 Yes, same. Taiwanese dialect.

April 2017 Kona, Hawaii DXpedition Article  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 29 2017

IRCA
For those interested in exotic Pacific island DX or in the latest "airport-friendly" FSL antenna designs, a 7-page article describing the first long-range test of the new 5 inch (127mm) "Frequent Flyer" FSL model has been posted at http://www.mediafire.com/file/d793vhcvsi5v01r/April_2017_Kona.docx

Detailing a four day DXpedition conducted in a 6th floor oceanfront room in Kona, Hawaii, the article describes the design challenge of making "airport-friendly" FSL models, the three new classes of "Frequent Flyer" FSL antennas and the first model's performance in tracking down exotic Pacific island DX at S9 levels. Included are 37 transoceanic DX MP3 links, including the full sign-off routines of 621-Tuvalu and 1440-Kiribati, as well as multiple recordings of 540-Samoa, 1017-Tonga and 1098-Marshalls. Thanks to Colin Newell of Victoria, B.C. for introducing this DXing paradise!

73 and Good DX,
Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)

 

Craig Barnes' TP-DXpedition to Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii (Part One)  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 29 2017

Thanks for your comments, Chris.

Craig has recorded about 40 videos (on his iPhone) of TP-DX that he has received in Kauai, almost all of which is completely unfamiliar to him (he is a DXer from Colorado, where big guns like 774-JOUB and 1566-HLAZ might show up with weak audio on a good day). As time allows, I'm attempting to help him sort out all the unfamiliar languages and stations, as well as give him tips on using the new "Frequent Flyer" FSL antenna. The challenge at this point is to organize all the information into a format which will be useful to the other TP-DXpeditioners. Craig probably was hoping to receive a lot of TP-DX during his Hawaii vacation, but in this case it seems to remind one of the admonition "Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it." But I'm sure that he will catch on.

<<< 693 This is Portuguese and it's Brazilian Portuguese. My cousin in Brazil
confirmed this fact, but no more specific than that. >>>

Yes, that 693 video has already been run by European language experts in the Yahoo Real DX group, who have not only confirmed that the language is Brazilian Portuguese, but that the source was the all-too-common NHK2 (Japanese) big gun station JOAB in Tokyo. What better way to clutter up a high priority DX frequency?

Gary

I forgot to mention your 711. Your recorded song is in English, so this is
KBS 1R Seoul in Siheung as you presumed.
