JULY'21 Trans Pacific/DU logs UTC
1008 AUSTRALIA Brisbane Jul26 0950 to 1050 UTC. Tentative. A weak signal in the noise that was not present from 0543 to 0600 UTC. Gone for good @ 1050 UTC. Brisbane, Australia @ 10 kW is the most likely. The only other 2 options are the 300 watt Canberra Aussie and the 5kW Launceston, Tasmania station. The frequency of 1007.9973 is a close match to an old MWList(12/30/16) post of 1007.9969. TPK-WI
1008 NEW ZEALAND Tauranga Jul26 0543 to 0600, 0950 to 1105 UTC. Tuned in @ 0543 and found a steady signal in the noise that peaked @ maybe a few dBs above the noise. The signal was still present @ 0950 and became faded and gone by 1105 UTC. The only TP this could be @ 0543 is the NZLander. Tauranga's sunset time was 0524 UTC. All the other TPs were still in the daylight. Frequency of 1008.0000 is a close match to the MWList 2/26/17 post of 1007.9997. TPK-WI

1017 unID TP Jun22 0945 to 1037 UTC. Signal w/o audio just above the noise. One brief peak to about 15 dBs above the noise. Faded and gone by 1037. Frequency was stable @ 1017.0012. The Australian 2KY in Sydney? TPK-WI
1053 2CA AUSTRALIA Canberra Jun15 0955 to 1022 Tentative. Weak TP signal w/ no audio alone on frequency. The signal peaked a few times about 5 dBs above the noise level .Of all the TP stations on 1053, only the 2 Australian locations in Canberra and Brisbane were past the sunset time. The frequency measured, 1053.0028 , was a very close match to a 2/14/18 post (1053.0027) on MWList for Canberra. Faded and gone for good by 1022 UTC. TPK-WI
1179 NEW ZEALAND Auckland Jun24 0526 to 0600 UTC 0900 to 1030 UTC. A lone, weak intermittent signal started showing up @ 0526 UTC. After napping, I came back @ 0900 to find the lone signal a little stronger and sometimes just above the noise. The freq. was stable @ 1178.9998. By 1030 UTC it was faded and gone for good. Auckland's sunset was 0512 UTC. The only other TP it could be with the early 0526 fade-in would be Radio Vanuatu but its sunset time was later, at 0630 UTC. TPK-WI
JUNE'19 Trans Pacific/DU logs UTC
1584 unID 6/26/19 0830 to 1050 UTC. A weak but steady signal was present w/o audio. The very possible TP signal was faded and gone for good by 1050 UTC. My LSR was 1013 UTC. Its frequency was measured @ 1584.0255 khz. By coincidence the MWLIST website has Radio Hauraki in New Zealand listed with a frequency range of 1584.025 to 1584.0266 khz. Was the unID the 1 kilowatt NZL!? TPK-WI
MAR'19 Trans Pacific/DU logs UTC
612 AUSTRALIA 4QR Brisbane 3/17 1202-4 VP just good enough to tell that the newscaster had Aussie inflections. Only DU I could claim audio on. NK-IL

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
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
