Newfoundland Ultralight Trans-Atlantics Report Nov 12-13 Summary


Allen Willie
 

Hello Everyone,

Due to the windy and colder conditions today I was unable to complete all 3 DX sessions over the weekend as planned up at Ladie's Lookout near Signal Hill, Newfoundland. However, Friday and Saturday evening offered better weather conditions and 2 sessions were completed with the logs listed below.

Stations from Spain dominated the two day affair and 2 new stations were added to the Ultralight Log

Saturday's monitoring at 20:20 UT discovered a signal on 1521 khz under the Saudi station with a woman in Russian language. Not sure if this is Urumqi in China as no other details and the time seems a bit late for it.
Also an unidentified on 1296 khz at 19:52 UT with Drumbeat music and vocals, possibly Sudan, any ideas ?

Hi Allen,

re your Russian language on 1521 I can tell you that the only thing I hear in RR on that frequency is China. Have you ever heard CRI before?

I will keep an eye open in the coming days to see if CRI is still on at that time. Reception can be patchy here sometimes it completely dominates the channel while others times its in the mix with England and Saudi.

regards

Paul Logan,

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.

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,

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.
