1044 SPAIN San Sebastian Jan10 0715 to 0816 UTC. A steady signal barely rising @ times o/ the 1040-1050 sideband level. (It was doing 20 dBs over @ times about 4 hrs earlier). Started to become intermittent @ 0804, gone by 0816 UTC. Frequency was 1044.0021 which was close to the majority of the postings on MWList for this station. San Sebastian's sunrise was 0739 UTC. TPK-WI
1044 SPAIN Valladolid Jan10 0715 to 0730 UTC. An intermittent signal buried in the sideband that was gone for good by 0730. ( 4 hrs earlier this was a steady signal sometimes rising 5 dBs o/ the sideband level ). Frequency was 1043.9975 which was a few hertz higher than anything on MWList. With a Valladolid sunrise of 0745 UTC, the 0730 fade was somewhat premature. With San Sebastian on 1044.0021, Valladolid is the only other TA listed on MWList that could still be coming in this late.
