TP's For Saturday, October 21, 2017 Victoria B.C.  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 21 2017

Full report to follow - listened from 1350 until 1430 (even when the band was still rocking...) audio on no less than 40+ channels - lots of 2nd/3rd tier JJ, Koreans and Chinese aplenty...
I would have called it a low average September morning at best... and this is October.

558-Radio Fiji One English ID  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 21 2017

Still going through the file review for the August Rockwork 4 DXpedition, and still coming up with a few surprises. Most TP-DXers know that 558-Radio Fiji One is the native language program in Fiji, while 900-Radio Fiji Gold is the English program (which Theo recently assured me is being heard very well in NZ, despite the fact that it apparently never showed up for us on the Oregon cliff).

With the rejuvenated 558-Radio Fiji One pounding in on most days with potent-level island music it was already a great improvement over past DXpeditions, but while reviewing the August 8th recording I was able to come up with a Radio Fiji One English ID for the first time in 9 years of TP-DXing (at a near S9 level to boot) at 1315 UTC on that exceptional morning, at the 27 second point
This was the first English that I have ever heard on RF1 (after about 18 receptions), so it was quite a surprise.

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