Cook Islands (Aitutaki) Ultralight TP's for 4-11... Yikes!  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, April 11 2018

IRCA
It was Exotic City on the Aitutaki beach this morning as 693-Bangladesh made a return appearance at an S9 level, along with Cambodian-sounding speech on 918 blasting Shandong around 1640. As if that wasn't enough 1431 had an S9 program in Korean at 1430 that could well have been Mongolia (if the Adventist Radio schedule concurs) while 1566 had Hindu-sounding speech dominating over HLAZ's Chinese at 1655.


Unfortunately the "Blue Sky" Internet system here in the Cook Islands is outrageously overpriced, squeezing every possible Kiwi dollar out of any tourist desiring to communicate in any way. There is no real competition for them here, and uploading about 4 MP3's will cost you around 20 Kiwi dollars. Somebody in Wellington needs to investigate the racket!


73 and Good DX,

Tony:

You're showing your vintage by referring to "The National Programme".
That's so "1964", when it wuz launched. Are you the letter-writer to
the newspaper in Wellington who listens still to 2YA?!

It's long since morphed to the current "R-N-Z National"... not even
Radio New Zealand National... let alone National Radio, either. <g>

Kia ora.. . or kia orana as a nod to Gary on Aitutaki.

Next thing youâll be telling me Theo that 2YA has had both its mast and its power cut by 50 percent or so. (G) I confess to being old enough to miss 2XM Gisborneâs mighty 100 watts alsoâ And just about all ANZ stations closed down by midnight to let the DXers play for goodness sake!! Here I sit, near Toronto, listening to 2YC Wellington on the computerâ.although the confused announcer seems to think it is Concert Radio or something, and I bet she (she!) has forgotten its antenna is a cable strung from the top of 2YAâs mast! And viewed from the North side of Titahi Bay digs two years ago I could not for the life of me find the Radio NZ towers on the golf course, even with excellent binoculars. (G)

Tony,

With all of your history and background knowledge, we really need to get you to lead a DX'ers tour of New Zealand! When that happens, I will be among the first to sign up.


Cheers

Exotic-Sounding 693 UnID at 1652  View Printable Version

Gary

The music sounds south Asian, so I'm thinking it's Bangladesh. With a
megawatt of power, the station probably gets out pretty well (we heard
it a few years ago at Grayland during the sunspot minimum).

Heard this morning (April 10) at 1752 UTC, this station apparently features both a foreign language and exotic music. In a mix with an Australian commercial station (and possibly another co-channel) from 1645-1705. Any ideas or comments would be appreciated https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/94j756mjptm1fuaij381dw2wbsqkre91
