Trans Atlantic loggings: UTC unIDs listed first
1197 unID TAs Sep24 0100 to 0330 UTC. 2 weak signals buried in the 1200 LSB that were gone after about 0330 UTC. Their frequencies were 1197.0002 and 1197.0008. There is not much on @ this time that this could be. Maybe low powered Absolute Radio synchros? Iran? TPK-WI
1368 unID TA Sep7 0505 to 0517 UTC. Weak signal popped in about 0505 and hung around until gone @ 0517. Nothing TA-wise on 1368 matches this. Frequency was 1367.9997. Possibly Napier, New Zealand (also on 1367.9997) coming in briefly 54 minutes before its sunset! Digging deeply, maybe it was the second harmonic of the Nigerian on 684 w/ its scheduled 0500 s/on and a 0501 UTC sunrise! TPK-WI
1368 ISLE OF MAN Douglas Sep7 0059 to 0537 UTC. Radio Manx. The only TA carrier present. A weak, transient signal in 1370's LSB before 0200, becoming steadily present after 0200, faded and gone for good after 0537 UTC. frequency/sunrise fade-out match. Its frequency was drifting slowly within a tight range of 1367.9981 to 1367.9985. MWList's has them in a range from 1367.9980 to 1367.9988. The Isle of Man is the only station on 1368 that could have this late 0537 fade-out. Douglas's sunrise was 0536 UTC. TPK-WI
594 SAUDI ARABIA, Duba Sep11 0223 to 0323 UTC. Came on the air @ 0223 as a steady signal in the 590-600 sideband noise. It was peaking around 5 to 10 dBs above the sideband noise before fading and gone @ 0323 UTC. A sign-on/frequency/sunrise-fadeout match. Duba was scheduled to come on the air @ 0230 UTC. The frequency was 594.0007 w/ a MWList post(3/31/21) of 594.0003. Duba's sunrise was 0320 UTC. TPK-WI
594 NIGERIA, Kaduna Sep11 0350 to 0410, 0445 to 0528 UTC. No signal present on 594 @ 0400 when they were scheduled to sign-on. Returned @ 0445 to find a weak steady carrier buried in the 590-600 sideband noise. It became intermittent after 0500, gone by 0528 UTC. A frequency/ sunrise-fadeout match. Frequency was 594.0002 w/ a MWList post(7/24/20) of 594.0000. Kaduna's sunrise was 0520 UTC. Nigeria is the only TA listed on this frequency that would be coming in this late. TPK-WI
596 MOROCCO, Oujda Sep11 0335 to 0553 UTC. Steady signal mostly just above the 590-600 sideband level. Peaked @ 15 dBs o/ the sideband level. Intermittent @ 0543, gone by 0553 UTC. The signal was already present @ 0335 about 25 minutes before a scheduled sign-on. The frequency of 595.8977 was way off the nominal frequency they should be at of 594. A frequency/sunrise-fadeout match. MWList has a 9/23/20 post of 595.898. Oujda's sunrise time was 0547 UTC. TPK-WI
657 SPAIN, Madrid Sep18 0017 to 0602 UTC. A weak signal buried in the 650-660 sideband noise showed up @ 0017 UTC. I was surprised to see a signal @ all considering the auroral cx @ the time. Gradually strengthened and was 20 dBs o/ the noise by 0435. Faded and gone by 0602. The late TA fade-out could only be Madrid for this frequency. Its frequency was 657.0050 w/ a MWList post(3/31/21) also of 657.0050. TPK-WI
837 CANARY ISLANDS Santa Brigida Sept5 0350 to 0651 UTC. A steady signal in the 840 LSB noise rising about 10 dBs o/ the noise. Frequency was 836.9961. Faded and gone by 0651 UTC. The only match this could be with the very late TA fade-out is the Canary Islands. Santa Brigida’s sunrise was 0644 UTC. TPK-WI
837 SPAIN (cities undetermined) Sept5 0350 to 0616 UTC. Three signals mostly in the 840 LSB noise. A few peaks maybe 5-15 dBs above this noise occurred. All 3 signals were faded and gone by 0554 to 0610 UTC. Frequencies were 837.0002, 837.0013, and 837.0016. The fade-out time range is consistent with Spain and Algeria. The one Algerian on this frequency is scheduled to sign on @ 0500 UTC however and would not have been on @ 0350. There are 3 Spaniards on this frequency. TPK-WI
945 ANGOLA, Mulenvos Sep24 0448 to 0509 UTC. Tuned in @ 0448 to find a weak signal in the 940-950 sideband that rose to 5 dBs over the sideband level before becoming intermittent and gone by 0509 UTC. A frequency/ sunrise-fadeout match. Mulenvos's sunrise was about 0457 UTC. Frequency was 945.0105 w/ a MWList post(12/18/20) of 945.0106. TPK-WI
945 NIGERIA, Birnin Kebbi Sep24 0530 to 0551 UTC. At 0530 found a steady signal rising just above the 940-950 sideband level. This signal was not present @ 0509 UTC. Faded and gone @ 0551. A frequency/sunrise-fadeout match. The frequency was measured @ 945.0004 w/ a MWList post (12/5/20) of 945.0007. Birnin Kebbi's sunrise was 0532 UTC. Another possibility would be Sao Tome e Principe but the frequency of 945.0004 is nowhere near a possible MWList frequency match. TPK-WI
1224 SPAIN, cities undetermined, Sept10 0100 to 0500, 0600 UTC. 3 weak signals present in the 1220-1230 sideband noise. 1224.0026 steady in the noise. 1224.0029 steady in the noise. 1224.0010 somewhat intermittent in the noise. All 3 were present @ 0500 and all 3 were gone when tuning back in @ 0600 UTC. For this frequency, only Spain and Nigeria can have this fade-out between 0500 and 0600. Nigeria has a 0500 sign/on however and would not be present @ 0100 to before 0500 UTC. MWList has 1224.0028(3/26/21) for Almeria and 1224.001( old 9/23/10) for Lleida. TPK-WI
1224 SPAIN, Huelva and/or Lugo, Sept9 0100 to 0500, 0600 to 0616 UTC. A steady carrier signal on 1223.9976 running mostly 10-15 dBs o/the 1220-1230 sideband slop. Around 0300 UTC the signal was briefly showing indications of actually being 2 separate signals. Faded and gone for good @ 0616. Spain is the only TA match for this late fade-out w/ the western cities of Huelva and Lugo being most likely. Both have equal sunrises of 0602 UTC. Lugo has a MWList post(3/27/17) of 1223.9979. TPK-WI
1305 SPAIN, cities undetermined Sep13 0000 to 0550 UTC. 4 carriers present upon tuning in @ 0000 UTC. The one on 1304.9966 was the strongest peaking @ about 20 dBs o/ the 1300-1310 sideband level. All 4 were still present @ 0550 when I fell asleep. The TAs that could be still coming in @ 0550 would be the 4 Spaniards all @ 10 kw or more of power or the less likely 3 UK stations all 500 watts or less. MWList has posts for 3 of the Spaniards but the ages of the posts make frequency-city matches kinda iffy. The frequencies measured were 1304.9941, 1304.9966, 1305.0007, and 1305.0011. The 4 Spanish cities are Ourense, Bilboa, Leon, and Ciudad Real. TPK-WI
1422 ALGERIA, Ouled Fayet Sep16 0325 to 0606 UTC. Found a lone TA carrier @ 0325 that was steady @ 10-20 dBs o/ the 1420 USB level. It became faded and gone by 0606 UTC. A frequency/sunrise-fadeout match. The frequency measured of 1421.9971 is an identical match to the MWList post(3/31/21) of 1421.9971. Ouled Fayet's sunrise was 0530 UTC. TPK-WI
1593 FRANCE, Saint Goueno Sep23 0230 to 0608 UTC. A steady signal on 1592.9973 @ times 10 dBs o/ the 1590-1600 sideband level. By 0545 the waterfall signal became widened and smeared and grew in strength to 15 dB over. By 0551 it looked like multiple signals had developed spread over 1592.9973 to 1592.9980. Everything was faded and gone by 0608 UTC. A frequency/sunrise-fadeout match. Saint Goueno's sunrise was 0557 UTC. MWList has a frequency post(8/14/21) of 1592.9972. NOTE: I misidentified this station on 7/9/21 as Egypt, not France. I was apparently fooled by a premature fadeout. TPK-WI
Trans Pacific loggings: UTC unIDs listed first
1368 unID TP? Sep7 1133 to 1146 UTC A weak TP? signal in the 1370 LSB noise showed up @ 1133 and was gone by 1146 UTC. Possibly a legit station signal. This time period has the sun setting across central China and Thailand. If China or Thailand, TP would stand for trans-polar and not trans-pacific TPK-WI
594 NEW ZEALAND, city undetermined Sep11 0638 to 0715 UTC. Weak carrier in the 590-600 sideband noise first detected @ 0638 UTC. Frequency was 594.0002. The early fade-in can only be NZL. The only TPs past their sunsets were the 2 NZLanders. The next TP sunset would be Horsham, Australia @ 0818 UTC. The 594.0002 frequency was less than a hertz away from what MWList had posted for the 2 NZL locales of Timaru and Wanganui. TPK-WI
657 NEW ZEALAND, cities undetermined Sep18 0550 to 0730, 1035 to 1157 UTC. A weak signal showed up inside the 650-660 sideband noise around 0550 while the Madrid TA was still present. It grew in strength and became a steady 15-20 dB signal over the noise. Faded and gone for good @ 1157 UTC. The very early TP fade-in can only be NZL. The frequency measured was 657.0001 which is within a few tenths of a hertz of what MWList has for the 2 NZLanders on this frequency, Tauranga and Wellington. The signal could be either of them, maybe both. TPK-WI
837 NEW ZEALAND (cities undetermined) Sept5 0600 to 0715, 1045 to 1140 UTC. Two weak signals first detected after 0600 mixing w/ the Spanish TAs . Both signals faded and gone by 1140 UTC. The frequencies were 837.0001 and 837.0004. The 2 NZLanders on this frequency have a sunset time around 0610 UTC and are the only TP matches for this early fade-in time of around 0600 UTC. TPK-WI
837 AUSTRALIA Rockhampton Sept5 0710 to 0715, 1045 to 1138 UTC. First showed up at 0710 as a weak, intermittent signal. Was peaking at 15 dBs o/ the 840 LSB noise after 1045. Faded and gone by 1138 UTC. The frequency was 836.9993 w/ a MWList post(3/22/21) of 836.999. The 0710 fade-in is consistent w/ Rockhampton's sunset time of 0748 UTC. TPK-WI
945 NEW ZEALAND, Gisborne Sep24 0530 to 0630,1000 to 1205 UTC. Only match. Steady signal in the 940-950 sideband sometimes rising 10 dBs above the sideband level. Already very weakly present @ 0530 UTC. This early fade-in has only one match - Gisborne NZL w/ a 0605 UTC sunset. Both the Aussies and the Solomon Islands have sunsets past 0728 UTC. Frequency was 945.0040 which differs from an old MWList post(2017) of 944.9923. Gone for good @ 1205 UTC. My LSR was 1140 UTC. TPK-WI
1224 AUSTRALIA, Melbourne and Sydney, Sept9 0745 to 1200 UTC. 2 weak signals present. 1224.0005 was first present @ 0750 buried in the 1220-1230 sideband noise. Stayed mostly in the noise but did peak 10 dB o/ the noise @ 1140. Gone for good @ 1149 UTC. 1223.9997 showed up @ 0809, stayed in the noise somewhat intermittent, and was gone @ 1144 UTC. Melbourne and Sydney are the only 2 TPs that would be fading in around 0800. Melbourne has a sunset of 0805 and Sydney a sunset of 0742. Sydney has a MWList frequency post of 1224.0010(2/14/18) and Melbourne a post of 1223.9994(3/20/17). TPK-WI
1368 NEW ZEALAND Napier Sep7 0551 to 0730, 1000 to 1152 UTC. Showed up @ 0551 as a weak intermittent in the 1370 LSB noise. Eventually became steady w/ a few peaks at 10 dBs o/ the 1370 LSB noise. Faded and gone for good by 1152 UTC. The only TP present until 1133 UTC. Frequency was steady @ 1367.9997. MWList had no frequency listing. Napier is the only TP this could be w/ the early 0551 fade-in. The other NZLander on this frequency is a 100 watt daytimer. Napier's sunset was 0554 UTC. TPK-WI
