IRCA


A few Asians followed by some New Zealanders. Not bad for summer solstice.


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

no

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

no


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


747 JOIB man talking Japanese 1108UT, quite a bit of weak audio on
this channel between 1105 and 1135UT. ID'd for sure by //774 at 1130UT

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 man talking, DU English inflection 1213UT
603 R. Waatea. island vocal music 1205UT, //765 a few minutes later
675 man talking DU English inflection 1204UT, RNZ National?
774 JOUB interval music //747 1130UT, then woman talking
765 R. Kahungunu. island vocals 1213UT, //603 which was fading away
at this time

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

828 seemed to be Asian;
756 774 882 891 909 963 1017 1035 1044 1098 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

Good luck with the new place Michael. For some reason the air (or
wine perhaps?) of northern Italy seems to inspire software defined
radios; perhaps you can join in during your spare time, if in fact,
there is any time to spare.

best wishes,

Nick

We will be close to the Boboli Gardens, however I think that they would take
a dim view of antenna erection there.

antennas.)


IN BOCCA AL LUPO and BUONA FORTUNA!

Hi all - many of you will have noted that I've been selling off some of my
gear, and I thought I'd let you know why. It seems that I'm on the move
again, I just can't seem to stay put.

So we sold our house and will be moving on August 1st to Florence in Italy
for several years at least. This will completely eliminate the opportunity
for a DKAZ as we will be in an apartment in the historic centre of the city.
We will be close to the Boboli Gardens, however I think that they would take
a dim view of antenna erection there.

I'm bringing the ELAD and will likely do some DXpeditioning in the Tuscan
countryside, but probably not for a little while as we adjust to our new
home. In the meantime I may try my hand at some FMDX since it's e-skip
season.

Anyway, I have to take down my DKAZ, the new owners of my property don't
want it, hard to imagine. So I have 2 sets of the wonderful termination
units that Colin Newell made for me about a year ago. One set is completely
unused, and 1 set has experienced a Nova Scotia winter outside and still
works perfectly - this set has had the BNC connectors replaced with banana
jacks, as I found it much easier to connect the DKAZ that way. If anyone is
interested in either of these, let me know and make me an offer. I can't
take them with me, so if it's at all reasonable I'll accept it.

It's been fun being here in Nova Scotia, we really love it , but it's time
to try our hand in another place. If you think it would be of interest I
will still post what I'm hearing on MW from my new location. It will be
interesting having stateside and Canadian stations being exotic DX rather
than those darn pests you have to null out.

Kind regards,

Michael
