A Few New Ones


Dennis Gibson <wb6tnb@...>
 

At first I was going to say that I'd like to have a couple of hours
with the power off. After I thought about it I decided I wouldn't. I'd
find out how many stations I can't hear due to high noise levels and
get frustrated because as an apartment dweller there's not much I can
do about it.

Congratulation on the new stations logged Kirk. Yes it was a windy
day, which resulted in a long power outage here. But it was a good
day for daytime DX of stations in Minnesota, Iowa and the Dakotas.
The best I've encountered since the 1980's.

Here are my logging for the 24-hours from 2200 UTC on 12/2/08:
1230 WHIR Danville KY 2302 UTC 12/2/08 SRF-T615
1230 KFPW Fort Smith AR 2306 UTC 12/2/08 E100
1230 KKPC Pueblo CO 2333 UTC 12/2/08 E100
1270 KFLC Fort Worth TX 0054 UTC 12/3/08 E100
1280 XEAW Monterrey NL MEX 0103 UTC 12/3/08 E100
680 KKYX San Antonio TX 1320 UTC 12/3/08 SRF-T615
710 KEEL Shreveport LA 1330 UTC 12/3/08 SRF-T615
810 KSWV Santa Fe NM 1407 UTC 12/3/08 SRF-T615
1250 KBRF Fergus Falls MN 1523 UTC SRF-T615
1270 KNWC Sioux Falls SD 1554 UTC 12/3/08 E100
1350 WCMP Pine City MN 1625 UTC 12/3/08 E100
1100 WZFG Dilworth MN 1723 UTC 12/3/08 E100

Heard a station on 880 kHz signing off in English at 2215 UTC (1715
EST), 12/2/08. I didn't catch the full call sign, but it began with
the letters "WR". I found a Spanish language station WRRZ, Clinton
NC, signs off at 2215. However, it might be WRFD, Columbus-
Worthington OH, but I don't when they close down for the day. Can
anyone help?

After six straight days of hearing JOAB 594 at local sunrise, the
frequency was silent this morning. All that was audible were hets on
783 and 972 kHz and they were silent by 1200 UTC.

Heard Glas Hrvatske 1134 at 0223 12/3/08, but didn't listen long
because of the KMOX HD noise. Also, heard the carrier on 1521 kHz
until it went silent at 0259:45 UTC.

I hope everyone has a good DXing night.

---Richard:
Your day time catches from Minnesota and South Dakota in the upper
half of the band are amazing!I have caught both of those states on
day time dx while i was in Oklahoma.But, they were in the lower half
of the band.I think your catches on the upper half of the band could
have been residual sky wave propagation.During late fall and early
winter, i am not sure that the d layer ever fully ionizes.This might
mean less absorbtion and allow some weak sky wave to sneak
through.Any comments on this from anyone ?

Kirk:

KRVA usually dominates 1600 kHz here at night. I'm afraid once I
logged it I've avoided it. Sometimes it's heard during the day QRMing
KUSH in Cushing.

Other than Japanese and Chinese, I'm terrible at identifying Asian
languages. The only way I know a language is from South Asian is
because of the accens. Also, my old ears are playing out.

1600, KRVA, Cockrell Hill, TX, 1422, 12/3, booming signal this
morning w/ chatter in what sounded like Vietnamese although I can't
say for sure. I'm really rusty on trying to identify East Asian
languages. I'm curious if any of you guys have hrd this one before.
It really shocked me the first time I logged it.

I'll shut up.

Since I don't weigh all that much, I better stay indoors today. The

1060, WQMV, Waverly, TN, 0205-0230, 12/3, THANKS to Richard's tip
yesterday, this sta was heard here w/ a decent signal. "Music from

accuracy of that since they were hrd so solidly here in OK.

1100, KNZZ, Grand Junction, CO, 1427, 12/3, ads promoting Christmas
shopping in that area of CO, W ancr discussed precautionary measures
