further TA in Victoria 1 December  View Printable Version 
Sunday, December 02 2018

IRCA


A further scan through last night's TA files yielded the following

DEC 1


702 unID, man talking, sounded French 0240UT, into music from
plucked stringed instrument, then more talking. Algeria is listed
as R. Coran at this time, which I suspect would not be French, but
can't think who else this might be?

783 unID man talking, some sort of Arabic singing, poor at 0111UT,
just a brief fade up.

819 Arabic vocal music, poor, 0231UT Egypt?

864 EGYPT maxed out 0227-8UT strong and clear Koran recitation.

909 woman in recognizably British English 0203UT and also 0230UT;
fair strength, likely Five Live

1026 unID turned up at various times between 0130-0220UT, best was at
0153UT, with echoey male vocals. Iran?

1098 Arabic sounding vocal, poor 0226UT

1539 UAE? Although formally logged at 0239UT, was also noted with
man talking and Indian sounding music 0203, 0214,and 0234UT, never
more than poor strength

1575 tUAE. Fades in the buzz saw yielded male Middle Eastern
sounding vocals, poor, 0159UT and across the hour, but I think Farda
runs on Iranian time anyway. Male talk at 0130UT however was too
poor to get any ID'able material


best wishes,

Nick

702 : I have heard 702 Algeria in French at 0500 // 1089 and others several years ago.
819: since you say it is Arabic, the question mark next to Egypt can be removed. Iran is Farsi and I don't think 5 kW Sudan is more than a dream.
1026: Can't say given the description.

Spanish on 1570?  View Printable Version

A slight possibility is KTGE in Salinas, California. 500 watts at night and the pattern somewhat favors you. The slogan is Radio Tigre.

TP 1 Dec Victoria version.  View Printable Version 
Sunday, December 02 2018

IRCA
This morning wasn't a "deer in the headlights" morning at all. More like the deer lying down and having a good nap.

Oddly, there was a smattering of Chinese as the sun rose.


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

pretty darn unlikely


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

774 JOUB briefly with Portuguese news 1432UT


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

828 JOBB NHK mentions by woman, website address, 1425UT

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)

594 woman talking, Japanese intonation 1438UT

639 CNR1 //945, not much more than mumbling 1544UT

702 woman talking DU English intonation 1507UT

747 //828 1425UT; also noted weakly with music box s/off at 1543UT

756 man talking, DU English intonation 1428UT

891 woman talking, DU English intonation 1438UT

945 CNR1 //639 1544UT

1422 woman talking, Japanese intonation 1547UT


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

567 693 972 1098 1566 1575 1593 seemed to be Asian;
558 603 837 846 1017 1503 seemed to be DU

TAs, sigh, yet again  View Printable Version

It has been certainly a much poorer evening here
Barry, but the Iranian jammer is still making an
appearance, and quite a few TA carriers, though haven't managed any audio yet.

best wishes,

Nick

How quickly the 1575 jammer became part of the landscape, eh?

Next stop, Puyallup? Gary, I think that a
barefoot ultralight might hear it. After all,
didn't Guy Atkins hear Farda on an ultralight?
