Comments: Yesterday I did a rough tally of all the weak TA and TP signals and frequencies I recorded since purchasing a SDR 4.5 years ago. It came out to about 215 TAs and 112 TPs. It is common to see these weak signals on any given night and even in summer. It's rare to have identifiable audio. Only 4 Algerians and one UK station have been identified so far ( and no TPs) in these 4.5 years. Some of these weak stations can be tentatively identified by finding a match between their sunrise(sunset) time and their fade out(fade in) time. Stations with uncommon frequencies offsets or having power downs(ups) @ certain times can sometimes be matched with what is being reported on the MWList website. But I still need audio confirmation before I will log any matches. Tom
1224 unID (no audio) TAs 8/8/20 0130 to 0245 UTC. 6 weak signals present rising @ times only a few dBs over the noise level. 2 were buried in the noise (ghosts) but still produced a faint vertical line on the waterfall. The signal w/ the highest frequency(1224.0142) had a waterfall display that became widened and smeared before it faded away and was gone by 0200 UTC. The waterfall behavior is consistent with a station experiencing a sunrise. The early TA fade out is consistent with the 0134 UTC sunrise in Kerman Iran. (IRIB Radio Iran) TPK-WI
