Date   

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 9-16

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

It was another exciting TP-DXing morning here, with several Asiatic mainland stations producing vibrant audio. I'm very happy that Nick was also able to receive a potent signal from the 603 kHz mystery Chinese station this morning-- here, it was dominating the frequency over a weak HLSA throughout sunrise enhancement. Maybe it has had a power increase, or antenna change? The 603 UnID Chinese station seems to have every intention of becoming another Chinese "big gun" TP, similar to the transformation of 936-Anhui a couple of years ago. Besides the 603 fireworks both 936-Anhui and 1575-VOA had their best audio of the new season so far, although the Japanese "big guns" didn't really boom in like yesterday.
 
Thanks to Chuck for his positive Hulun Buir ID on Nick's recording of the 603 kHz Mystery Chinese! At least now we know who this new "big gun" Chinese station is.

TP signals were slightly improved the past two mornings.

On Saturday morning (9/15) I was able to hear 747 JOIB and 774 JOUB with parallel NHK programme. Also heard was the 1053 ROK jammer, as well as hets on 828 and 972 kHz.

This morning (9/16), only 774 JOUB was heard with distorted unreadable audio fading in and out between 0949 and 1058 GMT. I fell asleep during the session and missed listening until LSR (1214 GMT).

The 702 kHz heterodyne of the past fortnight (most likely 2BL) wasn't heard. It will probably remain silent until there is an increase in solar activity.

Receiver: PL-310 with 7-inch FSL.

Good DX all.

Yup Gary...the Snowmobile Suit is Ready!! However...it's still very much like Summer around here right now. The Leaves are starting to Fall, and you can tell summer is pretty much Kaput.....but the Temps are still summer like....Maybe a Tad cooler. Heck, we may still get a bout of Indian Summer out of this!!

However...the past few nights I "Almost" hauled the FSL out onto the Deck...just to see what's going on with the ndb's!!! I think I logged some new Ones last September....so maybe I should be checking out the Band right now!!!! Not sure how much I would enjoy the hospitable temperatures though...HAAHHAHAHHA.......

Yeah.....I'm currently sitting at 271 ULR LW Stations....so cracking 300 should not be a problem this Season, unless things are really bad!!

I have been checking out the AM BCB nightly though....and have a couple of new ones so far....hopefully things will be hopping very soon......

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 9-15

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

The Asiatic TP conditions here seemed a little more wild than those reported by Dennis, Nick and Bruce. Chinese and Korean stations were unusually strong, and the big news was an obscure Chinese station on 603 kHz completely taking over the frequency at a very strong level around 1310. This Chinese station had been heard during previous seasons mixing with HLSA at a weak level, but this morning it completely hijacked the frequency. For the first time this season an Asiatic TP maxed out the PL-380's S/N readout at 25 (the 1053-Korean Jammer at 1318), and 972-HLCA came close to doing the same around 1335. Unfortunately the great conditions to Korea also boosted up the bizarre tirades and obsolete music on 657 kHz-- but at least this year's solar conditions are providing a few exciting TP-DXing sessions.

Little Radio... BIG Antenna !!

GaryT <kd1te@...>
 

As a youngster fascinated by radio, my dream was to connect a huge antenna to my radios. I was sure that would pull in the distant stations at local volume levels. Of course, big antennas are not always best for DXing; indeed, this Ultralight group is at the forefront of advanced small antennas. But nearly 50 years later, a chance to satisfy my childhood dream presented itself, and I had to take it.

A large area of conservation wetlands land near my home west of Boston is dotted with a number of old utility poles, many still strung with telephone wires. There's a spot where these wires cross a trail and have been cut by maintenance crews, since the poles have toppled into water on one side. But to the other side, wires aloft extend northward through the woods for a quarter mile or more.

What a perfect antenna, says my 11-year old mind! All I need to do is connect the northside wires to one side of a coupling loop, and use the swamp wire side as a ground counterpoise connected to the other side of the loop. This will couple wonderfully to a radio's ferrite antenna. Moreover, this is a location with zero QRM.

So I biked to this special spot, and spent an hour after sunset earlier this week, crouched at the edge of a swamp with my Grundig G8, listening and recording MW and LW NDBs on my "found antenna". This setup delivered a lot of signal into the G8. While I identified nothing remarkable on MW, the antenna functioned much like a Beverage, strongly favoring signals from the north. CBT 540 (Newfoundland) and CKAT 600 (North Bay Ontario) were like locals. The G8 is not very good on LW, but with all this signal funneling into it, when I pored through the LW recordings at home, many Canadian NDBs emerged. A sampling of what I heard is below. Also, two photos of my simple setup (before heading to the swamp) are at:

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 9-14

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

As reported by other west coast DXers, the band seemed to be in a transition from the dreary TP conditions of yesterday to something more promising. The Japanese "big guns" had some good audio at times, along with 972-HLCA and 1566-HLAZ. One bright spot was the first appearance of decent audio from the 639-CNR1 Chinese synchros, which usually are stong here in September (along with other Chinese stations like 936-Anhui, which has yet to manage good audio in this active solar year).

594-JOAK  Tokyo, Japan  Good strength with Japanese male-female interview at 1333
603-HLSA  Namyang, S. Korea  Fair music at 1307
639-CNR1  Chinese Synchros  Fair-good with YL in Chinese at 1330
                     http://www.mediafire.com/?utdzkcm658cei1f 
648-VOR  Razdolnoye, Russia  Poor-fair music through Vancouver splatter at 1327
657-Pyongyang  N. Korea  Obsolete music thankfully weak at 1335
747-JOIB  Sapporo, Japan  Good Japanese male speech at 1306
774-JOUB  Akita, Japan  Good strength but heavy 770-Seattle splatter at 1318
828-JOBB  Osaka, Japan  Poor-Fair with apparent weather report at 1305
936-Anhui, China  Poor strength Chinese around 1315
972-HLCA  Dangjin, S. Korea  Male-female Korean conversation strong at 1322

Trick: use the 100khz step to go down.

set the radio on 1700 khz, in sw,

then go down to 1600

!! that s it: now you go down in steps to 0 khz...

And the antenna is the whip, not the ferrite.

That means am is more sensitive (outside).

Today wasn't so good for DU's here in IL. 702 and 738 were several dB lower than they were a week ago when they were audible. CA stns and west coast Mexicans were also much worse than a week ago, whereas Colorado stuff was very good. So perhaps the 2nd need to get the coast wasn't very good.

Is your PL-310 stock, or have the filters been modified for better selectivity?

The 702 kHz het, most likely from 2BL, was the stronger of the two. Sadly no audio was heard. The receiver was a PL-310 with a 7.5-inch ferrite loop.

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 9-13 (or lack thereof)

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

Asiatic signals suffered a major drop off here this morning as even the "big gun" TP regulars struggled to produce any audio. 594-JOAK was one of the few to be heard with poor Japanese talk at 1310, but even 747-JOIB and 774-JOUB stayed at carrier levels. 657-Pyongyang and the 1053-Korean Jammer (both with equally interesting programming) managed a few ghostly traces of audio at times, but 1566-HLAZ (which was so vibrant yesterday) also stayed at the carrier level. I suspect that some kind of solar flare put the skids on TP propagation, at least for the 1300-1340 UTC period.

Re: Oklahoma DX 9/12/12

Richard,
 
Your current DXing setup seems to be close to providing you some audio from the South Pacific on your PL-310 Ultralight.
 
The good news is that unlike signals from the Asiatic TP's, signals from the South Pacific should not drop off in strength as the current solar cycle goes into its lean years (according to local expert Chuck Hutton). The summer DU-DX on the Oregon cliffs was the best that I ever experienced, and the recent reception of 738-Tahiti audio in Michigan and Illinois follows the same trend. I'm sure that you will have your own chance eventually.
