Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 3-25  View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 26 2017

IRCA
Thanks to Nick and Walt for their initial reports. I just finished a very enjoyable lunch with TP-DXer Craig Barnes from Colorado, during which we discussed all kinds of exciting subjects like antennas, propagation, and how to track down TP's with Ultralight radios and FSL antennas. Craig is an extremely fast learner, and he plans to try out his new 3.5 inch "Baby FSL" chasing TP's with his PL-310 and/ or ICF-2010 at Kalaloch, WA and Rockaway Beach, OR in the next few days. A photo of our meeting is posted at https://app.box.com/s/bgckffuk25nu2aajjik0co5bae9ol705

The Japanese and Korean big guns were setting the pace again this morning during a session from 1300-1400, with 594,693, 972 and 1566 especially potent. As reported previously 657-Pyongyang and its bizarre programming hung around for practically the entire hour, along with some fair peaks from 738-BEL2. 657-Pyongyang apparently has a somewhat reworked TOH routine, with a few seconds of soft female vocal music before the 3 +1 pips. As usual, the 3 + 1 pips seemed much stronger than the TOH routine before and after the pips, and of course North Korea's "TOH" is on the half hour (apparently by order of the "Eternal Leader"). All the previous DX was received on an "airport friendly" 5 inch FSL (which Craig and I plan to test out in Hawaii next month, TSA permitting).

657 Pyongyang BS Pyongyang, N. Korea 3 + 1 time pip TOH routine at a fair level at 1330

Incessant stern-voiced female tirade at 1353, dragging on until she was thankfully silenced by the propagation crash at 1358

693 JOAB Tokyo, Japan Very good strength female news at 1353; typical of Japanese big gun strength this morning

Gary, 657 was booming in to Masset as well and 1053 even was clearly
audible under cochannel Japan. 73, Walt

Hi Guys,

There was decent audio here from the Japanese and Korean big guns from 1300-1400, as well as a moderate but persistent signal from 657-Pyongyang. The latter stuck around for practically the entire hour, refusing to go away (or come up with better programming).

657 Pyongyang BS Pyongyang, North Korea Incessant female tirade at 1343; almost enough to make you miss the Korean Jammer

See you for lunch soon, Craig!

Post sunrise audio here in Victoria, Craig. Check 972 and 1566 if
you've gotten the radio working again. 1242, 1287 and 954 are also
possibilities...

best wishes,
Nick
