OCT'17 Trans Pacific/DU logs!
Trans Pacific DX:
594 AUSTRALIA 3WV Horsham Oct2 1145-55 P-F peaks with M&W talk and I could hear her say," On ABC Radio". Clearly the best I ever heard this one over 9700 miles away! Other common lowbanders in but not much more than threshold levels. NK-IL
1152 unID Oct20 2245 to 2248 GMT. Found a TA signal here about 8 hertz above nominal strong enough to have audio but no audio hrd. Gone after a power drop(sign off?) @ 2248, 12 minutes before LSS. TPK-WI
1152 unID Oct21 0015 to 0340 GMT. I monitored 1152 while watching the Yankees/Astros game on TV. A signal suddenly showed up @ 0034 ( sign on ?) about 11 hertz below nominal and strong enough to maybe have audio. By 0050 the signal stabilized strong and steady close to nominal. Garbled audio from 1150 and one of my local jammers made detecting any audio impossible. In the next 3 hrs weird things happened.There were 5-6 episodes of abrupt almost instantaneous 4 to 10 hertz frequency shifts before returning to the nominal. One 30 second event had 4-5 of these shifts including a shift of 20+ hertz that shot off the screen.( The engineer's kid must have been jiggling the frequency knob of the transmitter. HI ). At 0340 the steady signal showed a flare up which usual means a power drop/ ant. change. The signal quickly faded into the noise afterwards. TPK-WI
1548 AUSTRALIA 4QD Emerald Oct5 1200 P-F with big signal in heavy slop. ABC ToH fanfare into man with news. NK-IL
SEP'17 Trans Pacific/DU logs!
612 4QR AUSTRALIA Brisbane Sep29 1143-8 P peaks with interview sounding the same as 702 and 738. These 3 are the most common Aussies here. NK-IL
702 AUSTRALIA 2BL Sydney Sep29 1145-53 P-F on peaks with gal interviewing a collector of some sort. No real QRM from NZ's Magic at the time and their carrier which is slightly higher than 2BL's was considerably weaker. NK-IL
738 AUSTRALIA 2NR Grafton Sep29 1151 peaking up to P // 702 with interview. Quite a few other low band carriers/hets noted. NK-IL
1098 MARSHALL ISLANDS V7AB Majuro Sep24 1129-1134 Good peaks with choral song ending and fading as a man talks in island lang and peaking up for their NA with every note clearly audible! This has been audible at least weakly every morning that I've tried this Sept! NK-IL
1098 unID Sep23 1030 to 1210 GMT. A TP signal found hetting 1100. Some weak audio briefly in between 1100 and 1130 but there was too much 1100 splatter and lightning static to make anything out. Frequency measured @ 1098.0006. Signal lingered around to 1210 GMT, 30 minutes past LSR. Maybe V7AB Marshall Islands? A second weaker signal was sometimes around, close by @ 1098.0002. TPK-WI

SEPT'16 Trans Pacific/DU logs!
1098 MARSHALL ISLANDS V7AB Majuro Sep25 1128 P ending a song and then a man talking in Pacific type lang, and then into instrumental NA and faded. They recently have fixed their xmtr and will drop audio at about 1130 but leave OC on AN. Best I've ever heard them. NK-IL
