Oklahoma TP DX 2/25/17  View Printable Version 
Saturday, February 25 2017

IRCA
The TP DX drought continues here.
828 JOBB? carrier signal under WCCO at 1259.
1566 HLAZ? traces of signal at 1304-1306 (LSR 1305).

Even in the recent years of elevated sunspots the reception of high-powered Japanese stations was better than it has been here this winter. Normally JOUB was audible many mornings into early spring. It has been rarely heard this year. Although its carrier is often heard, I've yet to hear audio from JOBB this season. In the past it was frequently audible around sunrise. As the transoceanic DX season fades away thoughts already turning to the start of the next.

Good DX.

TP 24 Feb Victoria version  View Printable Version 
Saturday, February 25 2017

IRCA
A fairly wild morning between 1400 and about 1450UT, mostly above
1200 kHz, and a lot more hints of audio than I would have
liked....many carriers, so close.


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


594 JOAK,man in Japanese,1444UT
747 JOIB man in Japanese //774 1319UT, not nearly so good later,
though did barely hear the s/off music box at 1541UT


774 JOUB man in Japanese 1510UT; still around for s/off at 1540UT, but weak


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

1503 JOUK man in Japanese //594 1444UT


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

702 NHK2 woman and man tlaking, English lessons //774 1427UT
828 JOBB man in Japanese //747 1319UT
972 HLCA man in Korean 1432UT
1422 JORF assumed; man and woman in Japanese, erratic fading 1434UT
1566 HLAZ man in Korean 1651UT, violin music, faded slightly by
1700UT, delivered 3 and 1 pips, familiar theme music, bit of Korean
talk, then fading. Local sunrise nearly two hours before.


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)

954 man talking Japanese inflection 1410UT
1134 man talking Japanese inflection 1431UT
1215 slow vocal music 1433UT
1242 man talking, Japanese inflection 1439UT
1287 man mumbling, Japanese inflection 1649UT
1314 woman talking, Japanese inflection, 1424UT
1332 man talking Japanese?? 1436 and 1441 UT
1386 NHK2 woman talking //774 1441UT
1458 unID. Classical sounding music after man talking 1447UT,
possibly Japanese?


1539 NHK2 woman mumbling //774 1450UT
1593 NHK2 woman talking 1448UT //774

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

567 711 909 1017 1044 1089 1116 1179 1269 1431 1494 1512 1575
seemed to be Asian; no likely DU?

best wishes,

Quiet Colorado TP Morning  View Printable Version 
Friday, February 24 2017

IRCA
Elsewhere it is. I can no longer speak for Grayland (where things
presumably are fairly outrageous), but there was quite a nice upper
band lift in Victoria before 1450UT, with audio on 1458 at one point
(who?) for example.

1566 is still delivering weak audio from time to time at 1640UT.

best wishes,

Nick


I listened from 1314 to 1355. All I heard was a weak het from 1566,
presumably HLAZ from 1314 until 1345. That was it.
