TP 7 Apr Victoria version  View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 08 2018

IRCA
Another unusual morning, with many hints on China, but only a few definite ones; Japan was hit and miss, a few Aussies, couple of New Zealanders. Pretty much done by 1330UT again


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


774 JOUB woman in Japanese 1255UT

972 HLCA woman in Korean after pop vocal 1337UT, but had been pretty strong several times in previous half hour

1566 HLAZ man and woman in Japanese 1319UT


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


1575 VoA assumed with man in SE Asian language 1357UT, gone by the hour of course


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


576 man in DU English, assumed 2RN 1316UT

612 4QR man in DU English mentioning ABC 1321UT

702 2BL end of weather by man, and "ABC news" 1304UT //612

747 JOIB woman in Japanese //774 1255UT

828 JOBB woman talking //774 1301UT

945 CNR1 likely, woman and man in Chinese 1313UT; had heard a pair of offset Chinese pips at 1300UT

1206 Yanbian, woman in Korean 1311UT

1323 CRI man in Russian, 1306UT; also noted //963 at 1323UT

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 man talking DU English intonation 1316UT, sounded parallel to scraps of talk on 675, so R. NZ National likely

567 JOIK,seconds later 1316UT, man talking //594

594 woman talking DU English intonation 1324UT; 3WV likely

594 JOAK man talking Japanese intonation 1258UT, never amounted to much, but ID'd through 567 parallel

693 JOAB woman talking //774 1257UT

819 female operatic singing 1310UT, presumed N. Korea

873 JOGB woman talking //747 1255UT

891 woman talking DU English 1324UT

918 man talking, Chinese intonation 1325UT

963 CRI, man talking, then music //1323 1323UT

1215 CNR 'X' man talking, Chinese intonation 1256UT; pips at 1300UT, cadence of Beijing time check by woman, and a bit of slow anthemic sort of music, which was not //945. A number of different CNR choices on this channel


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

603 855 864 936 981 1026 1035 1053 1098 1134 1143 1179 1188 1242 1251 1269 1287 1314 1359 1386 1422 1593 seemed to be Asian;
531 675 756 846 882 1116 1548 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

Nick

It was an odd morning. Nothing was very strong for any length of time even on the big guns, and a lot of weak audio was heard from smaller guns, also for short lengths of time. Audio from China through New Zealand was featured, without too much rhyme or reason as to what was being heard when. 1300 to 1330UT encompassed most of the action


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


not today


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

594 JOAK woman in Japanese 1301UT

774 3LO man and woman, DU English 1305UT //702; JOUB in the weeds

774 JOUB English lesson 1313UT

828 JOBB English news //693 1302UT

972 HLCA man and woman in Korean 1302UT, briefly at this level

1323 CRI woman in Russian, musical interlude, and more talk 1321UT //963 a moment later

1566 HLAZ man in Japanese 1304UT


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


576 2RN woman mentioning BBC World Service 1316; //846 and 621 at various times

747 JOIB English lessons 1313UT

891 5AN? man on phone, woman in studio, DU English, 1319UT

828 3GI man talking 1259UT, pips, fanfare, and ABC news.


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 man talking, DU English intonation 1305UT

585 7RN woman talking //576 1307UT

594 3WV under JOAK with fanfare 1300UT

603 light pop vocal, suspect HLSA, as ragged traces of something similar on 558; 1311UT

612 4QR old pop music //774 1309UT

621 3RN woman talking //576 1309UT; both low level, but quite clear

693 JOAB man and woman //828 1302UT

702 2BL woman talking //774 1305UT

738 2NR man and woman talking //612 1331UT

945 CNR1 man talking, interspersed with CNR news sounders 1303UT

963 CRI, pretty rough with woman talking then man, but definitely //1323 1322UT

1134 man and woman, high octane Japanese talk? 1301UT

1242 man talking Japanese intonation 1327UT

1287 man talking Japanese intonation 1321UT


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

558 891 918 936 1026 1035 1179 1269 1314 1422 1503 1575 seemed to be Asian;
531 603 765 837 1017 1098 1107 1116 1503 seemed to be DU

any audio. 4BC was top dog, as usual, but 4MK was surprisingly close at
times.

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 4-6  View Printable Version 
Friday, April 06 2018

IRCA
A quick band check in the predawn darkness at 1300 this morning showed fair to good audio peaks on 594, 693, 747, 972 and 1566, but with all the second tier Asian carriers anemic at best. With a trip to the Cook Islands planned tomorrow and with another big-gun-only session seemingly in store, the obvious decision was made to write the remainder of the session off, and be thankful for the chance to temporarily escape this lackluster propagation in favor of some serious ocean beach excitement in the center of Polynesia.


73 and Good DX,
