AUG'13 Trans-Atlantic DX: ALL TIMES:GMT
783 MAURETANIA NOUAKCHOTT R.Mauretanie Aug18 0223 P-F peaks with typical overnight mx sounding like Arabic stringed mx but with an African flavor. Later at 0348 thx mx was more typical Arabic type. These guys have been running all night for at least 2 years now. They were the only TA noted this weekend with decent audio, although I had trace audio on 549,837, and 891. Phasing down WBBM helped here. NK-WI


FEB'11 Trans-Atlantic DX: ALL TIMES:GMT
531 ALGERIA F'kirina Wilaya d'Oum El Bouaghi, Chaine 1 Feb13 2324 VG easily past pest CIAO // 549. Weak SAH also noted. NK-WI
549 ALGERIA Les Trembles, Chaine 1 Feb13 2323 E (actually xlnt is an understatement !) absolutely blowing out WGR etc on 550 with mostly a man speaking AA and occ. musical interludes. If I spoke AA I could've understood every word. So strong it made 550 seem like it was the split. Could be hrd mixing with 550 on truck rx! // 531 (also in on truck rx but not as well). 15 minutes later these were much weaker. NK-WI
585 SPAIN Madrid, RNE Feb13 2327 P with man speaking SS // others. Normally this is stronger in even fair TA cx. NK-WI
666 PORTUGAL Antena 1 Syncros Feb13 2308 F-G peak presumed with a C&W song with WSCR phased but faded quickly. NK-WI
684 SPAIN Sevilla, RNE G/VG Feb13 2314 loud and clear with M&W in SS // a couple others, but soon faded to weak. NK-WI
693 ENGLAND Droitwich et al, BBC R.5 Feb13 2303 P but good enough to hear a few EE words. Usually this is better. Was bothered by WVCY. NK-WI
702 MONACO La Col de La Madonne, RMC-Info Feb13 2254 VP presumed just good enough to tell that she was speaking French. NK-WI
837 SPAIN/CANARY IS. COPE Feb13 2316 P with SS talk and no trace of France or Azores. Usually this one is stronger. NK-WI
855 SPAIN Murcia et al, RNE Feb13 2320 F in slop with man in SS. NK-WI
864 FRANCE Paris, France Bleu Feb13 2318 G for a couple of minutes pushing back CJBC slop (normally awful) with a gal speaking FF. Not a trace of Egypt noted under. NK-WI
873 SPAIN SER Syncros Feb13 2347 P with typical SER talk. NK-WI
972 LIBYA Sirt, Radio Jamahiriyah Feb13 2344 F peak with AA mx and then talk // weaker 1053.1. Hard to believe that this is only 50 kW. Big signal present but undermod audio. NK-WI
1053.1 LIBYA Tripoli, Radio Jamahiriyah Feb13 2345 P past low growl from 1053 // 972. Both noted on past 2400. NK-WI
1116 SPAIN SER Syncros Feb13 2349 VP with WISN IBOC phased. Typical SER talk // 873. Pontevedra was IDed here during a local break in Nov. NK-WI
1134 CROATIA Rasinovac, Glas Havratske F peak Feb13 2243 with woman speaking in a Slavic lang. Gone after 2300 s/off. WISN phased. NK-WI
1206 FRANCE Bordeaux, France Info Feb14 0004 P with gal speaking FF. Usually stronger, but high end TA's were very poor. NK-WI



AUG'10 Trans-Atlantic DX: ALL TIMES:GMT
693 SPAIN RNE Synchros Aug23 0327 F peaks o/u UK's Radio 5 Live which was often VG and clear to listen to. Overnight RNE programing in SS // 684/774 and others. Bits of mx from Azores occ. noted also underneath. Thanx to CINF being gone, NEW! NK-WI
1602 SPAIN SER Synchros Aug23 0343 P-F mostly under Euskadi from Vitoria which was decent with usual Spanish mx. The high end of the band seemed to peak nicely to Spain at this time. SER SS news/talk on 1602 was // 873(mixed with AFN) and 1116 (WISN IBOC phased). Rare. NK-WI

NOV'09 Trans-Atlantic DX: ALL TIMES:GMT

972 SPAIN RNE synchros Sept22 0250 F // many others during big low band Iberia opening. A very interesting channel here this month and often a big carrier from the undermod Libyan ( AA audio 9-4) and once NDR Germany was hrd around 0400 Sept3. NK-WI
1080 SPAINtER synchros Sept4 0300 and 0330 VP with only pips coming thru WTIC (KRLD/WNWI phased out). I thought I had Spain's pips at 0300 and was quite sure at 0330. Tentative since I could here no audio that I could // others. NK-WI

Clearly not Spain as not SS and not // the several RNE's that were in. Would be a new country but I'd like to hear it clearer before claiming it. Faded out with area sunrise. NK-WI

NK-WI 675 NETHERLANDS Lopik Sep1 0406 P-F with DD talk thru slop. NK-WI 684 SPAIN Seville RNE-1 Sep1 0023 F and the first audible TA of the night with SS talk. Later on this would fade up to a VG level at times and be readable using the 6 Khz filter. A very easy TA here. NK-WI 702 UNID TA Sep1 0408 VP and too weak to discern language. NK-WI 711 MOROCCO Addakla Sep1 0410 P-F with very poorly modulated AA talk into mx on huge carrier trashing 710. NK-IL 720 PORTUGAL RDP-1 synchros Sep1 0252 F u/phase nulled WGN w/a song with distinctive piano mx // 666. This had been strong enough at times earlier to call almost good, and I was certain the ancr was speaking PP but I couldn't raise a // due to slop on 666 and 693. About 2/3 of the time when a TA was audible u/WGN Portugal was the boss rather than Canaries. This plays lots but not all songs are EE soft rock and olders songs.

Still no Egypt for me on this                                 channel. NK-WI 891 ALGERIA Alger Chaine 1 Sep1 0353 G audio on a super strong but poorly modulated carrier w/AA mx, then talk //549. On the car                                     rx the het made listening to WLS rather unpleasant ! NK-WI 1485 SPAIN SER synchros Sep1 0417 VP just good enough to tell was SS talk //SER.

NK-WI 837 CANARY IS/SPAIN COPE synchros Aug31 0510 G peaks and almost 100% readable for 10 minutes // a couple others. No France                             noted at this time.
