Possibly KLOK in San Jose CA, which is mostly south Asian programming.

Aloha Craig,

Thanks for the extensive DU-DX report from Kona-- and you certainly are becoming a very prolific "Frequent Flyer!"

<<< I set up my portable shack, which is comprised of Gary DeBockâs superb hot-riffed Tecsun PL-380 with the also superb 5â FSL on a picnic table on the grounds of the Kona Isle Condominium complex. The picnic table is about 50 ft. From the water. I tried a limited session from the balcony of the 2nd story condo the night before with marginal results. The picnic table by the water is clearly the way to go! >>>

Yes, getting your Ultralight DXing gear into a noise free location as close as possible to the salt water is critical to success. Motels and condos typically generate enough RFI to take out weak DX signals, and you need to be ready, willing and able to "get out of Dodge" if necessary. In the Cook Islands last week my bungalow had S7 noise from 531-1701 kHz, but the lagoon beach 150' away was dead quiet. Any DXer booking an exotic Pacific vacation should practice a quick, mobile setup of both the radio and antenna. This is where Ultralight gear really shines-- tracking down awesome propagation with awesome portability. Good luck in Kona!

Gary

990-Fiji Gold Cyclone Information  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, April 17 2018

IRCA
For Kiwi transplant Tony Ward, this is one of hundreds of DU-DX recordings made on the ocean beach of Aitutaki in the Cook Islands. A cyclone was passing through Fiji waters on April 10th, affecting not only Fiji but Walt's nearby cruise ship. At 0812 UTC 990-Fiji Gold's announcer gives the current cyclone status, along with advice that if listeners' FM signal is knocked out by the cyclone, they should tune to the AM frequency of 990. As with almost every other DU-DX target in Aitutaki, Fiji Gold hits a thunderous S9 level during the recording, and shows no mercy to a weak ANZ co-channel. This MP3 was recorded on the hot-rodded (7.5" loopstick) C.Crane Skywave SSB Ultralight alone https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/b5may3rbr5kuuwbus18lr4hala57x1vb
