Re: Newfoundland Ultralight Trans-Atlantics Report Nov 12-13 Summary

Hi Allen / Mark,

WRTH 2010 lists Urumqi with Russian between 11 and 20 utc to Central Asia. I just checked after 2000 and no Russian noted. However they also have Russian from 0000 - 0200 (thats 0800 - 10 Xinjiang local time, so at least the first hour of that will be before local dawn)

On at least one occasion in the past I have heard them on their morning broadcast.

So for you Allen looks like you have a short window before your local sundown plus the hour later on. Should be doable - I check CRI every afternoon to see what conditions are like if there are any outstanding afternoons I will email and let you know.

Amazing to hear Urumqi has been heard in the Boston metro area Mark, it thrills me hearing it here so I can only imagine the multiplied effect on the other side of the Atlantic!

regards

Paul Logan,
Lisnaskea, N. Ireland

In the '70s/early '80s the Urumqi transmitter was on the unique channel of 1525 and it was logged several times in autumn around sunset in the Cape Cod and metro-Boston coastal areas. Since going to 1521 I think there was one tentative log at Chatham, MA but mostly the channel is owned by the Saudi, one of the strongest of all TA's. SER Spain is what is usually what's far off in the background.
