Pretty much the same conditions here this morning, very poor signal levels.

Alberta TPs for 9 November 2018  View Printable Version 
Saturday, November 10 2018


Listened this morning off and on from 1250 to 1410. In summary:

Australians on 549,576,612,774,1116
Japan on 567, 594, 693, 747,774, 828

In general Japanese were stronger earlier, with Australians coming in
after 1330. It was interesting though that 774 went from entirely
Japanese at 1300 to entirely Australian at 1400, while the Japanese on
747 improved after 1300, and was good by 1400.

Very similar to yesterday (when a volleyball tournament prevented me
from reporting.)

9 Nov Victoria version.  View Printable Version 
Saturday, November 10 2018

Because domestic splatter seemed quite subdued today for some reason, it was hard to judge which way overseas conditions were going, but suspect they are declining again, as nothing was strong for long. DUs also mostly disappeared again, and HLAZ was MIA.

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

558 HLQH usual soft music //603 1441UT, but apparent JOCR noted at other times

567 JOIK //594 1454UT

594 JOAK 1441UT

702 NHK2; out of the blue strong for a minute or so, stronger than //774, man in Japanese 1501UT

747 JOIB 1451UT

774 JOUB 1442UT

828 JOBB 1501UT

972 HLCA 1435UT; after this was often in the weeds

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

693 JOAB //774 1454UT, burst through the splatter from time to time

738 Taiwan Fisheries, pop music //1143 1458UT

873 JOGB //774 1445UT

1287 JOHR "HBC rajio" by man 1459UT, single pip on the hour

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

603 HLSA female ballad 1456UT //558; best strength this could do today

891 JOHK //594 1440UT

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)

531 man talking DU English intonation 1449UT

603 NHK1 woman talking //594 1441UT over HLSA

612 JOLK //594 1448UT

639 CNR1 man //981 1446UT

657 classical female vocal 1443UT, assumed N. Korea

837 JOQK //594 1444UT

909 JOCB man //828 1511UT

945 CNR1 //639 1450UT

954 woman talking Japanese intonation

981 CNR1 man //639 1446UT

1134 pop vocal 1503UT, no idea

1143 Taiwan Fisheries woman talking //738 1441UT

1206 man talking 1443UT

1386 NHK2 //774 1448UT

1422 man talking, Japanese intonation 1453UT

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

621 711 801 846 855 864 918 936 1188 1323 1566 seemed to be Asian;
567 612 891 1017 seemed to be DU

Coverage maps by frequency  View Printable Version 
Friday, November 09 2018


Hi Mark,

I've noticed it too. I think it's because the Google API that sites like
this one used, which used to be free, is now being charged for, and if
you don't pay the fee, you get that error. Either that, or the Google
API that's being used is being deprecated.

I don't know of any other places that show pattern maps though... sorry!

There was one other site I used for grayline maps, but that one had to
switch to another mapping software (which was inferior, sad to say) for
the same reason I think. For grayline maps, I ended up using the radio
maps here:


I also found another API that is still free. Don't know anything about
it, but I have seen talk of people switching to that who don't want to
pay the extortio-- I mean, fee, to Google:


Best regards,

The pattern reference maps on the site
http://radio-timetraveller.blogspot.com/ have been a great source of
information. However, lately, the pages show up with a mask that says

DEVELOPMENT PURPOSES ONLY...has anyone else noticed this?

...Do you know of any other sources of maps that show all the stations

each frequency? The NRC pattern book is great, but I'm looking for
something digital, for the classes I'm teaching.

Any thoughts are welcome!
