Trans Atlantic loggings: UTC FEBRUARY 2024
612 UNID TA 2/24/24 0250 to 0430 , 0630 to 0645, 0830 UTC. A signal on 612.0004 - 612.0006 intermittent to about 15 dB's over the 610 USB level. Still present @ 0645, gone @ 0830 recheck. This is most likely the Moroccan SNRT station running 24 hours. MWList's only recent post (4/29/23) has them @ 612.0021 which is not really a frequency match. TPK-WI
612 SPAIN,Vitoria 2/24/24 0250 to 0430 , 0630 to 0645, 0830 UTC. A signal on 612.0016 doing about 30 dBs over the 610 USB level when I tuned in @ 0250 UTC. This was the station causing the het against 610. It had a steady signal 10 to 15 dBs over most of the evening. Still present @ 0645 UTC, gone @ a 0830 recheck. By 0645 UTC the only listed stations on 612 that were pre-dawn were the 2 Spaniards and Morocco. MWList's latest freq. post (10/26/22) is 612.0017. TPK-WI
612 SPAIN, Lleida 2/24/24 0250 to 0430 , 0630 to 0645, 0830 UTC. A signal on 611.9887 waxing and waning from intermittent to about 15 dB's over. Present @ 0645, gone @ 0830 UTC. MWList has this station near 611.9896 to 611.9906 the last 3 years. TPK-WI
1089 UNITED KINGDOM, talkSPORT syncho 2/7/2024 0130 to 0300 UTC, 0620 to 0900 UTC. A signal on 1088.9997 that had a max peak about 10 dBs over the 1090 LSB level. Intermittent by 0749, gone by 0801 UTC. TPK-WI
1089 UNITED KINGDOM, talkSPORT syncho 2/7/2024 0130 to 0300 UTC, 0620 to 0900 UTC. A signal on 1089.0002 that was peaking @ 40 dBs over the 1090 LSB level. This was definitely strong enough to het 1090. It's also strong enough to have some audio but none was detected (too much QRM from both 1080 and 1090). It still had some peaks to 10 dBs over as late as 0847 UTC, It was still present but weak and intermittent @ 0858 UTC. I suspect this is the Westerglen, Scotland talkSPORT w/ a 0801 LSR and 125 KWs of power. TPK-WI
1089 UNITED KINGDOM, talkSPORT syncho 2/7/2024 2/7/2024 0130 to 0300 UTC, 0620 to 0900 UTC. A weak signal on 1089.0005 that never peaked above the 1090 LSB level. Gone by 0731 UTC. TPK-WI
1089 UNITED KINGDOM, talkSPORT syncho 2/7/2024 0130 to 0300 UTC, 0620 to 0900 UTC. A signal on 1089.0010 that several peaks to 40 db over the 1090 LSB level. No audio however. Mostly weak and intermittent after 0730 UTC,, peaking @ 15 dBs over @ 0813 UTC, and weakly hanging in intermittently to 0900. Possibly the Northern Ireland talkSPORT w/ a 0802 UTC LSR. TPK-WI
Trans Atlantic loggings: UTC October 2023
873 UNID TAs 10/18/23 0200 to 0340 UTC. 4 of the 6 total TA signals showing up during this time remain mysteries. They are 872.9964, 872.9990, 872.9997, and 873.0002. Two of these were most likely Santiago de Compostela, Spain and the Algerian. TPK-WI
873 SPAIN Zaragoza 10/18/23 0200 to 0340 UTC. Tentative. An intermittent weak signal buried in the 870 USB level. Its frequency was 873.0086 with the latest MWList post (3/30/2021) @ 873.0082. TPK-WI
873 MOZAMBIQUE Beira 10/18/23 0200 to 0340 UTC. A weak somewhat intermittent signal that never rose above the 870 USB level. This signal was seen coming on the air @ 0259 UTC and was faded and gone 13 minutes past its LSR of 0308 UTC. Its frequency was 872.9938 with the latest MWList post (12/26/2022) @ 872.994. MWList has their daily start time @ 0250 UTC. TPK-WI
1530 ROMANIA Nufaru 10/15/23 0145 to 0545 UTC. Tentative. A weak but steady signal came on air @ 0205 UTC and abruptly went off air @ 0310 UTC. It never came back on. The signal strength never rose above the base noise level. Its frequency @ the start was 1530.0107 and it had drifted upwards to 1530.0202 when it went off air. MWList's latest post (11/10/2021) was 1530.0108 w/ variable stability. Tentative cuz MWList has their daily start time @0350 UTC. TPK-WI
1530 SAO TOME e PRINCIPE Pinheira VOA 10/15/23 0145 to 0545 UTC. Came on the air @ 0255 UTC. It became a steady signal doing almost 10 dBs o/ the base noise level . (WCKY was pushing about 55 dBs over during this time.) It gradually started to fade around 0525 and was gone by 0534 UTC. The frequency was stable @ 1530.0005. A triple match. Pinheira VOA had a scheduled start time of 0300 UTC, MWList latest post (9/23/2021) was 1530.0006, and Pinheira VOA 's fade out occurred after its LSR of around 0515 UTC. TPK-WI
Trans Atlantic loggings: UTC September 2023
1116 unID TAs 9/11/23 0350 to 0430 UTC. 4 TA signals present upon tuning in @ 0350 UTC. 3 were unidentifiable, 1115.9950, 1115.9974, and 1116.0001. There were no frequency matches w/the /MWList website if you consider where the sun has risen across Europe. I am pretty sure 2 of them are the Spaniards. MWList has frequency posts for the Spaniards but the posts are too old (2015). TPK-WI
1116 GUERNSEY(UK) Saint Peter Port 9/11/23 0350 to 0430 UTC. A somewhat intermittent signal never rising above the 1110-1120 sideband level. It was still present @ 0430 when I tuned out cuz I couldn't stay awake, HI. Frequency was 1115.9996 with a recent MWList post(8/11/23) of 1115.9995. TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic loggings: UTC August 2023
1359 ETHIOPIA Mekelle 8/22/23 0230 to 0330 UTC. A weak somewhat intermittent signal in the 1360 LSB that first showed up @ 0255 and was gone by 0310 UTC. It had a brief peak @ 0306 to almost 10 dBs over the LSB level. The signal's frequency started @ 1358.9982 and drifted slightly upward to 1358.9986 at the end. A triple schedule/frequency/sunrise-fadeout match. Mekelle has a daily 0300 to 2000 schedule, a 309 UTC sunrise, and a MWList post(latest 2/20/22) at 1358.9990. Mekelle was the only TA signal present during this time. TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic loggings: UTC July 2023
657 SPAIN Madrid 7/9/23 0200 to 0500 UTC. A weak somewhat intermittent signal that never rose above the 650-660 sideband level. The signal first showed up @ 0205 UTC and was gone for good @ 0435 UTC. Its frequency was measured between 657.0051 and 657.0054 w/ a 1/9/23 MWList post of 657.0053. Madrid's sunrise was @ 0452 UTC. TPK-WI
657 SOUTH AFRICA Meyerton 0200 to 0500 UTC. A weak intermittent signal buried in the 650-660 sideband. The signal first showed up around 0355 UTC and lasted about 45 minutes until 0444 UTC. Its frequency was 657.0002 w/ a MWList post(12/31/20) of 657.0008. Meyerton's sunrise was @ 0456 UTC. With Madrid Spain accounted for, this is the only other TA station listed on 657 that would be coming in this late. TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic loggings: UTC June 2023
1107 unID 6/14/23 0349 UTC. A weak TA carrier came on the air @ 0349 UTC then was faded and gone within 7-8 minutes. Frequency was 1106.9998 . Possibly the Nigerian w/ a 0400 UTC start up time. MWList has nothing posted for a frequency offset for the Nigerian. TPK-WI
1107 unID 6/14/23 0230 to 0425 UTC. A TA signal waxing and waning from in the sideband din to 10 dBs over. Gone after 0425 UTC. Frequency was 1107.0088 w/ no frequency match @ MWList. Good chance it was one of 4 Spaniards. TPK-WI
711 WESTERN SAHARA Laayoune Jun8 0240 to 0615 UTC. The only TA present. A mostly steady signal running about 10 dBs over 710's USB level. There were a few peaks to about 20 dBs over and a few dips down into the muck. Frequency was very stable @ 710.9965. The signal started to weaken about 0551 and was quickly gone by 0556 UTC. Laayoune's sunrise was @ 0558 UTC and MWList's latest frequency post was 710.996 ( 5/30/2020 ). TPK-WI
891 ALGERIA Ouled Fayet 6/22/23 0200 to 0230 UTC, 0400 to 0435 UTC. Algeria's signal started to become visible around 0205 UTC and became 10 dBs over WLS's USB by 0218 UTC. Retuning to 891 @ 0400, the signal was @ 20 dBs over the 890 USB but no audible het was noted against WLS. It quickly faded after 0405 UTC and was totally gone by 0420, 10 minutes before its LSR. The frequency was 890.9978 w/MWList's latest post (1/9/23) @ 890.9975. Ouled Fayet was the only TA present during the 2 time periods. TPK-WI
1107 SPAIN Santander 6/14/23 0230 to 0500 UTC. A TA signal w/ long duration peaks to 15 dBs o/ the sideband level and sometimes reaching 20 dBs over. Faded and gone by 0440 UTC. This signal may have had audio if WTAM had not been coming in @ almost local signal strength. Frequency was 1106.9970 with a MWList post (2/16/18) of also 1106.9970. Santander's sunrise time was 0433 UTC. TPK-WI
1422 ALGERIA Ouled Fayet 0400 to 0500 UTC 6/21/23. The only TA signal present during this time. Peaked for awhile @ about 10 dBs over the 1420 USB level but became very intermittent after around 0418 UTC. Finally gone @ 0432 UTC. Frequency was 1421.9967 w/ the latest MWList post (9/16/21) @ 1421.9971. Oulet Fayet's sunrise time was 0429 UTC. TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic loggings: May 2023
738 unID 5/29/23 0205 to 0357 UTC. Weak signal started to show up @ 0205 UTC. The carrier was sometimes very weak and intermittent, sometimes doing about 15 dBs o/ the sideband level. It was faded and gone for good by 0357 UTC. The frequency was very stable @ 738.0003. 3 stations had sunrises about 0425 UTC, Spain, Algeria, and Mozambique. MWList latest entries are 737.99990 for Spain,738.0006 for Mozambique, and nothing for Algeria. Most likely the signal was coming from Barcelona, Spain w/ its 150/100 kilowatts. TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic loggings: March 2023
1413 UNID 3/16-17/23 2345 to 0040 UTC. 3 TA signals were present upon tuning in @ 2345, 1412.9988, 1412.9981, and 1412.9953. 1412.9953 was weak and buried in the 1410 USB mud but the other 2 were peaking almost 20 dBs over the USB level. At 0002 UTC a wide smeared signal showed up about 1412.9970, quickly peaked at 20 dBs over, then started to fade and was gone by 0009 UTC. If this was a grey-line event, 2 of the 9 chinese stations listed on 1413 have sunrises near 0002-0009 UTC, Hami and Ruoqiang. Hami's sunrise was @ 2355 UTC and Ruoqiang was @ 0016 UTC. Comilla, Bangladesh on this frequency had a sunrise of 0002 but their listed schedule sez they were off air @ the time. My local sunset was 2358 UTC. The 3 TA signals were most likely the 3 Spaniards listed on this frequency. TPK-WI
1431 unID 3/13-14/23 2350 to 0024 UTC. A weak, widened, and smeared signal centered about 1431.0000 showed up around 2350, peaked quickly to 10-20 dB over the 1430 USB, drifting slowly higher in frequency while fading and was gone by 0024 UTC. A widen and smeared signal suggests a sunrise or sunset and there is one station listed on 1431 that qualifies, Bandarban, Bangladesh! Bandarban had a 0000 UTC sunrise. The 6 Chinese and 2 Thai stations on this frequency all had sunrises an hour or more before hand. The 0000 UTC sunrise and my 2355 UTC sunset also implies possible enhanced grey-line propagation. TPK-WI
1431 DJIBOUTI, Djibouti 3/13-14/23 2330 to 0330 UTC. Carrier signal present upon tuning in @ 2330 UTC, 25 minutes before my local sunset. The signal was running 10 to 20 dBs above the 1430 USB level until about 0130 then started a gradual fade. Intermittent by 0305, gone by 0314 UTC. The frequency was holding steady @ 1431.0014. A frequency/fadeout-sunrise match. Latest MWList post(4-2-21) is 1431.0008 . Djibouti's sunrise was @ 0315 UTC. Note: Djibouti is the only TA listed on this frequency with any power-600 kilowatts. The next strongest station has only 350 watts. TPK-WI
1503 EGYPT, El-Arish 3/13/23 0345 to 0400 UTC. Found 3 signals on 1503 upon tuning in @ 0345 UTC, 1503.0003, 1502.9926, and 1502.9949. The 1503.0003 signal never rose above the 1500 USB level. It was faded and gone by 0354 UTC. A frequency/fadeout-sunrise match. El-Arish's sunrise was 0358 UTC w/ the latest(2-2-23) MWList posting @ 1503.0001. The other 2 signals were very likely the 2 Spaniards on this frequency. TPK-WI
Trans Atlantic loggings: March 2022
684 unID TA Mar3 0520 to 0618 UTC. A weak, steady carrier in the sideband noise that had one peak to 10 dBs over the noise. Faded and gone by 0618 UTC. Possibly the Damaturu, Nigeria station with a 0526 sunrise. The frequency measured was 684.0025 but MWList has no frequency postings for this station. This carrier was seen running hours before 0500 UTC several nights ago. MWList has the Nigerian starting @ 0500 UTC. Maybe Damaturu runs an OC during its early AM hours before coming on air. Another unsolved mystery. TPK-WI
684 SPAIN Sevilla Mar3 0520 to 0830 UTC. A carrier on 683.9992 that was running mostly 20-30 dBs o/ the sideband noise level. A persistent signal that was still @ 20 dBs over @ 0753, 1 hour past its sunrise of 0653 UTC. Faded and gone for good by 0830 UTC. MWList's latest frequency post (2/6/22) is 683.9990. Spain is the only station listed on 684 that could be coming in this late. TPK-WI
684 TUNISIA, Medenine Mar3 0520 to 0611 UTC. A signal on 683.9997 that was hanging in just above the 680-690 sideband level. The vertical waterfall line for this station was widened and smeared. The signal peaked @ 0556 UTC about 20 dBs over then faded and was gone by 0611 UTC. MWList's latest post(2/6/22) is 984.0001. Medenine's sunrise time was 0544 UTC. TPK-WI
801 SPAIN Castellon Mar12 0425 to 0630 UTC 0800 UTC Poor carrier mostly embedded in the 800's USB. Several peaks to 10 dBs o/ the USB level. The frequency was measured at 800.9441 w/ a MWList post(11/26/21) of 800.9461 . Faded and gone @ a 0800 recheck. Castellon's sunrise was 0617 UTC. TPK-WI
801 SPAIN cities undetermined Mar12 0425 to 0630 UTC, 0800 UTC. 6 TA carriers present during this time. Only western Europe was still in darkness and only the 6 Spaniards MWList had listed were not low powered. The frequencies measured were 800.9441, 800.9851, 800.9888, 800.9993, 801.0004, and 801.0007. The 800.9441 frequency was a close match for Castellon. The other 5 had no close matches w/ what MWList had. The 6 stations had sunrises in the range of 0605 to 0650 UTC and all six carriers were faded and gone @ a 0800 UTC recheck. 800.9993 was the strongest of them all with several peaks to 20 dBs o/ the 800 USB level. TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic loggings: February 2022
972 unID TA Feb10 0330 to 0400 UTC. Three TA carriers were present and being watched when a fourth one showed up @ 0345 UTC with a widened ,smeared vertical waterfall line. Briefly peaked then started to fade and was gone by 0358 UTC. Smearing indicates a possible sunrise/sunset or auroral event. Both the Ethiopian and the Iranian stations had sunrises about 0345 UTC. Botswana had a 0358 sunrise. The frequency was measured @ 972.0015 and didn't match anything MWList had. TPK-WI
954 TURKEY Trabzon-Deliktas Feb9 0230-0500 UTC. A carrier on 953.9974 came on air @ 0254 doing about 5 dBs o/ the 950-960 sideband level. Became a weak, intermittent signal soon afterwards until about 0400 UTC. Peaked @ 10 dBs over @ 0416 then started to fade and was gone for good by 0441 UTC. A schedule/frequency/sunrise-fadeout match. Trabzon has a scheduled sign on of 0300 UTC, MWList's latest post(1-15-22) for this station is 953.997, and Trabzon's sunrise time was 0423 UTC. NEW! TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic DX:January 2022 unIDs listed first
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. TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic DX:December, 2021 unIDs listed first
585 UNID TPs Dec13 1250 Two weak signals buried in the sideband noise, 585.0002 and 585.0010. Down unders more likely than the western Pacific rim. TPK-WI
1521 UNID TAs Dec9,10 2230 to 0430 Three weak signals present. On 1520.9970, I thought it was maybe Bahrain but it never faded away after Bahrain's LSR of 0316 UTC. A signal on 1521.0000 was probably Slovakia. The third signal was first measured on 1521.0028 and eventually drifted up to 1521.0042. Spain? TPK-WI
585 SPAIN Madrid Dec12-13 2050 to 0758 A steady signal first appearing @ 2050 UTC, over an hour before my LSS. All alone on the frequency until 0343 UTC and mostly running about 10 dBs or so over the 580-590 sideband noise level. Started to weaken by 0730. Was faded and gone by 0758 UTC. The frequency was 585.0002 with a MWList (3/31/2021) entry of 584.9999. Madrid's LSR time was 0729 UTC. Madrid, Spain is the only TA listed on 585 that could have such a late fade out. TPK-WI
585 TUNISIA Gafsa Dec13 0343 to 0758 A weak, sometimes intermittent carrier that came on the air @ 0343 UTC. The signal never made it above the 580-590 sideband noise level. Faded and gone for good by 0648 UTC. This was a schedule/sunrise-fade out match. MWList has them signing on @ 0400 UTC. Gafsa's LSR was 0622 UTC. Their frequency was measured @ 585.0062 w/ no offsets listed at all on MWList. TPK-WI
999 SPAIN Madrid Dec22 0714 to 0804 UTC. Signal running about 10 dBs o/ the WMVP-1000 LSB level. Started fading around 0740, gone by 0804 UTC. Madrid(50 kw) w/ a 0734 UTC LSR is much more likely than the only other candidate, Nottingham, England(250 watt), with an 0815 UTC LSR. Madrid’s frequency was 998.9966 which is lower than the latest (3/21) MWList post of 998.9984. TPK-WI
1521 SAUDI ARABIA, Duba Dec9 1953 to 2231 A weak signal started to show up on 1520.9997 at 1953, over 2 hours before my LSS of 2216 UTC! By 2040, the signal was running 10 to 15 dBs over the 1520 USB level. It was peaking @ 25 dBs over by 2220 UTC. A secondary signal began showing up @ 2150 just below 1520.9997 at about the same strength but much more widened and smeared. Both 1520.9997 and the smear went off the air @ 2231 UTC. MWList has Radio Riyadh in the frequency range of 1520.999 to 1521.0015 with a daily schedule of 1500 to 2230 UTC. TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic DX:October 2021 unIDs listed first
1413 unID TAs Oct04 2250 to 2305 UTC. 5 signals present in the 1410 USB w/ only one (Vigo,Spain?) rising at times above the sideband level . 1412.9947, 1412.9950, 1412.9978(Vigo?), 1412.9989, and 1413.0000. TPK-WI
531 ALGERIA F'kirina Oct30-31 2250 to 0115 Tentative. Inaudible to poor. CHLO-530 and WAUK-540 QRM. Signal was peaking @ about 45 dBs o/ the sideband level. The only discernible audio were female and male voices w/ no mx. At 0100 UTC the Seville Spain kiwi sdr had a female and male chatting away in FF but I couldn’t match the voices w/ either the kiwi sdr or earlier AA chatter on the webstream. The frequency was 531.0008. TPK-WI
828 SOUTH AFRICA ,Klipheuwel ( near Cape Town) Oct13 0156 to 0435 UTC. Weak but steady signal embedded in WCCO's LSB. Peaked @ 10 dBs o/the LSB @ 0350 UTC, became faded and intermittent by 0420, gone for good by 0429 UTC. Frequency was exactly nominal @ 828.0000 with a MWList post( 1/26/21 ) of 828.000. Cape Town's sunrise time was 0407 UTC. TPK-WI
828 AZORES, Monte das Cruzes Oct13 0156 to 0435 UTC. Tentative. Very weak intermittent signal in WCCO's LSB until about 0300, weak but steady afterwards. Frequency of 828.0156 is a close match to MWList's 12/3/20 post of 828.0154. The frequency match with an offset 15 hertz+ that far away from nominal strongly suggests it is the Azores. I couldn't find a fadeout-sunrise match around 0800 UTC cuz WCCO(and its LSB) was coming in @ almost local signal strength . TPK-WI
1377 TANZANIA, Mwanza Oct03 0105 to 0345 UTC. A weak but steady carrier embedded in 1380's LSB @ 1377. A few peaks to 10dBs o/ the LSB level were observed. This was the only TA signal seen on 1377 during this whole time. Faded and gone for good @ 12 minutes past Mwanza's sunrise of 0333 UTC. Its frequency of 1376.9905 was a close match to MWList's 7/1/21 posting of 1376.9912 and the 4/23/21 posting of 1376.9906. Tanzania! TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic DX:September 2021 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
747 CANARY ISLANDS, Mesas de Galaz Sept28 0550 to 0656 UTC. Signal that was mostly buried in the 740-750 sideband level. Faded and gone by 0656. Frequency was 746.9988. One of 2 TA signals present @ the time and the second to fade out. With a Cadiz, Spain sunrise @ 0617 and a Canary Islands sunrise about 0656 UTC, the Canary Islands are the better match. MWList's most recent post was 746.9982 on 2/26/17. TPK-WI
747 SPAIN, Cadiz Sept28 0550 to 0646 UTC. Signal that was mostly running 10 dBs above the 740-750 sideband level. Faded then lingered and gone by 0646. Frequency was 747.0001. One of 2 TA signals present @ the time and the first to fade out. With a Cadiz sunrise @ 0617 and a Canary Islands sunrise about 0656 UTC, Cadiz is the better match. No recent matches found for the frequency. 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 Atlantic DX:AUGUST 2021
Pan-AM loggings (GMT):
1017 SPAIN Burgos Aug26 0330 to 0540 UTC. Signal weak and intermittent to 10 dBs o/ 1020's LSB noise. Faded and gone by 0540. Frequency measured @ 1016.9886. A frequency/fade-out match. The late TA fade-out of 0540 UTC suggest Spain. MWList has Burgos in the range from 1016.99 to 1016.9926. Burgos' sunrise was about 0535 UTC. TPK-WI
1017 SPAIN Granada Aug26 0330 to 0540 UTC. Signal weak and intermittent to 10 dBs o/ 1020's LSB noise. Faded and gone by 0540. There is not much on 1017 that could fade out @ 0540 UTC except the 2 Spaniards. With Burgos present on 1016.9886, Granada is the only match. Frequency was 1017.0007 w/ a MWList post(2/16/19) of 1016.999. Granada's LSR was about 0540 UTC. TPK-WI
1017 TONGA A3Z Nuku'alofa Aug26 0446 to 0600, 0930 to 1143 UTC. A weak signal that first showed up @ 0446 w/ the 2 Spaniard TAs present! The signal became about 10-15 dBs above the 1020 LSB noise most of the time before it faded and was gone for good @ 1143 UTC. Its frequency was drifting in the range of 1017.0008 to 1017.0031. Nuku'alofa's LSS was 0530 UTC. TPK-WI
1269 SPAIN Badajoz Aug2 0123 to 0235, 0435 to 0518 UTC. Weak signal mostly in the noise. One peak @ 10 dB above the noise. Gone for good by 0518 UTC. A close frequency and sunrise/fadeout match. Frequency was 1269.0029 w/ a MWList post(3/5/17) of 1269.0024. Badajoz's sunrise was 0529 UTC. TPK-WI
1269 SPAIN Zamora Aug2 0123 to 0235, 0435 to 0518 UTC. Weak signal mostly in the noise. One peak @ 10 dB above the noise. Intermittent by 0500, gone by 0518. A close frequency and sunrise/fadeout match. Frequency was 1269.0000 w/ a MWList post(5/16/20) of 1268.9995. Zamora's sunrise was 0518 UTC. TPK-WI
1269 NIGERIA Jalingo Aug2 0435 to 0500 UTC. Not present @ 0235 UTC. Weak signal in the noise. Intermittent by 0455, gone by 0500. Another close frequency and sunrise/fadeout match. Frequency was 1268.9981 w/ a MWList post(5/16/20) of 1268.9984. Jalingo's sunrise was 0505 UTC. Nigeria!! TPK-WI

Trans Atlantic DX:JULY 2021
963 TUNISIA Tunis Jul4 0149 to 0420 Signal w/o audio peaking about 15 dBs above the noise. Showed up @ 0149, became intermittent around <0400, gone by 0420. Tunis’s LSR was 0405. Frequency measured @ 963.0000 w/ a MWList (1/19/20 ) post of 962.9996. TPK-WI
1053 UNITED KINGDOM Droitwich Jul26 0300 to 0435 UTC. A signal w/o audio peaking about 12 dBs above the noise level. Faded and gone by 0435 UTC. The frequency of 1052.9982 closely matches the 4/3/21 MWList post of 1052.9979. Droitwich's LSR was 0420 UTC. TPK-WI
1215 SAUDI ARABIA Hafar al-Batin Jul12 0050 to 0240 Only sunrise/fade-out match. Steady weak signal in the noise became intermittent by 0156. Lingered then gone by 0240 UTC. Hafar al-Batin's sunrise was 0207 UTC. Frequency was 1214.9670. TPK-WI
1215 UNITED KINGDOM Absolute Radio synchros, Jul12 0135 to 0410 A signal w/ no audio running 10-20 dBs above the noise. Started to fade and smear by 0327, intermittent by 0345, gone by 0410 UTC. Frequency of 1215.0001 was a close match to all the synchros. The fade-out time favors the eastern UK. London's sunrise was 0357 UTC. TPK-WI
1593 EGYPT Matruh Jul9 0150 to 0349 UTC. Only sunrise/fade-out match. Weak signal in the noise upon tuning in @ 0150 but about 12-20 dBs above the noise most of the time afterwards. Started to fade by 0310, gone by 0349 UTC. Matruh's LSR was 0313 UTC. Frequency steady @ 1592.9972. TPK-WI
1602 SPAIN city undetermined Jul30 0153 to 0524 UTC. A weak signal in the noise @ 0153 but peaked @ 20 dBs o/ the noise by 0450. Faded and gone by 0524.The 4 Spaniards on this frequency were the only stations left on 1602 that hadn't experiencing sunrises by 0400. The problem is that all 4 have sunrises in the range of 0502 to 0515 UTC. The station's frequency was drifting a little in the range of 1601.9936 to 1601.9939. MWList's 10 year old post for Linares, Spain @ 1601.994 was helpful but untrustworthy. There were also signs that a possible 2nd station was present within the same frequency range. TPK-WI
1602 SPAIN Onteniente Jul30 0228 to 0501 UTC. A weak signal that never rose above the noise. Faded and gone by 0501. A frequency and sunrise match. Onteniente's sunrise was 0502 UTC with a MWList(7/23/20) offset of 1601.991. The frequency was drifting in the range from 1601.9910 to 1601.9913. TPK-WI
1602 SPAIN city undetermined Jul30 0400 to 0505 UTC. A weak signal that never rose above the noise. Faded and gone by 0505. Frequency was 1602.0071. Maybe Segovia Spain? TPK-WI

JUNE 2021 Trans Atlantic DX:
1179 unID TA Jun24 0330 to 0356 UTC A weak intermittent signal not rising above the noise. Faded and gone by 0356 UTC. Frequency was 1178.9960. A big mystery cuz nothing matches up. The 100 watt Holland station? TPK-WI
1017 A3Z TONGA Nuku'alofa Jun22 0945 to 1046 UTC. Tentative. Found a signal w/o audio riding about 10dBs above the noise level. It briefly peaked almost 30 dB above the noise but still w/o audio. Gradually faded to a lingering residual signal until finally gone by 1046. My LSR was 1012 UTC. The signal was a slow drifter. It started @ 1017.0028 and ended @ 1017.0032. TPK-WI
1143 EAK40 SPAIN Jaen Jun19 0050 to 0440 UTC. A weak signal w/o audio showed up about 0050 UTC. After 0350 the signal became noticeably stronger and the waterfall line started to widen and became smeared. The signal faded out and was gone for good by 0440 UTC. Jaen's sunrise was 0453 UTC. The frequency, 1143.0049, is a close match to MWList's listing of 1143.0045. TPK-WI
1143 EAK59 SPAIN Ourense Jun19 0104 to 0444 UTC. Tentative but the only fit. A very weak ghost like signal became present around 0104 UTC. The signal was coming and going intermittently until it was gone for good by 0444 UTC. Ourense's sunrise was 0456 UTC. MWList has only Iran and possibly Greece listed besides the 2 Spaniards for this frequency . The Iranian and Greek sunrises don't correspond very well with the 0444 fade out. The signal would have faded out long before 0444 UTC. The frequency was 1142.9997. TPK-WI
1179 MOZAMBIQUE Quelimane Jun24 0330 to 0356 UTC A weak intermittent signal not rising above the noise. Mozambique seems really far fetched but things matched up. The frequency measured of 1178.9992 was almost the same as a 12/31/20 MWList post of 1178.9990. The signal was gone for good by 0356 . The Quelimane sunrise time was 0402 UTC. MWList has a sign on time of 0250 UTC. TPK-WI
1179 SPAIN Jun24 0330 to 0435 UTC A signal sometimes 10 dBs above the noise was faded and gone by 0435 UTC. Frequency was 1178.9984. This could be either of the 2 SER network Spaniards, maybe both. Valencia was listed as 1178.9981 (3/30/21) and had a sunrise of 0436 UTC. Logrono was listed as 1178.998 (3/27/20) and had a sunrise of 0433 UTC. TPK-WI
1179 CANARY ISLANDS Santa Cruz de Tenerife Jun24 0330 to 0556 UTC The signal was mostly in the noise and intermittent before 0426. After 0426 it strengthened to a few dBs above the noise before fading and gone by 0556 UTC. Santa Cruz de Tenerife's sunrise was 0608 UTC. The frequency was 1178.9935 w/ a MWList 2/26/17 post of 1178.9949. The late TA fade-out of 0556 can only be the Canary Islands. Every thing else is way past its sunrise time. TPK-WI

162 France, Allouis 1/5/21 0230 UTC. Tentative. No intelligent audio present. A steady carrier w/ very cluttered +/- 45 hertz sidebands. I'm uncertain that this is the French digital time signal station but this is the only thing listed for this frequency. They are supposedly running 800 kilowatts. TPK-WI
171 Morocco, Nador 1/5/21 0245 to 0330 UTC . Assumed. Mostly inaudible to very poor. Male and female chatter and what sounded like Arabic pop mx.

1431 unID (no audio) TA Jan8 2110 to 2200 A weak intermittent het started to show up against 1430 more than an hour before my LSS. The only thing w/ any power on this frequency is the 600 kW VOA station in Djibouti. Its schedule is 1530 to 0330 UTC. So I came back to it 6 hours later and, surprisingly, saw it go off the air promptly @ 0330 UTC (1/9/20). Djibouti?!! Frequency measured @ 1431.0013. TPK-WI

DECEMBER'19 Trans Atlantic loggings: GMT
891 unIDed TA 12/18/19 2345 UTC. Strong signal during the evening giving WLS-890 a nasty het. No voice or mx audio could be detected but there was a signal on 892 giving 891 a weak het. The MWList website has Algeria Chaine 1 listed as testing during this month. This could be Algeria running a 1 khz. test tone. 891 measured @ 890.9990 and 892 measured @ 891.9989 khz. TPK-WI
1278 unID TA 12/14/19 0145 to 0415 UTC. A lone signal no more than 5 to 10 dBs at most above the noise floor. Too weak to have audio or cause a het on 1280. There’s not much on 1278 listed w/ much power except Egypt, Oman, and Iran. The frequency was measured @ 1278.0073 which is within the range of frequencies the MWList website has for IRIB Radio Kermanshah in Iran. The signal was faded and gone for good by 0409 UTC. An Internet search found Kermanshah to have a sunrise of 0349 UTC. This definitely makes Iran the most likely. TPK-WI
1521 unIDed TA 12/27/19 2045 to 2230 UTC. Found a signal on 1521 giving 1520 a het @ 2045 UTC, more than 1 and ½ hrs before my local sunset! Local WRRD-1510 in a null. Poor but steady signal hetting 1520 until a power drop occurred @ 2230 UTC. No audio was ever detected. Its frequency was measured @ 1520.9998. The frequency and power drop is consistent w/ the frequency offset and schedule the MWList website has for Radio Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. TPK-WI

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
