winter season started

Post by PFM907 » 02 Sep 2018 10:31

AM season is about to start quite early this year and I expect many interesting evenings until the end of 2018.
Korea has been heard the past few days as well as Sao Tome gave a stable signal. Taiwan + China were strong.

I am excited!

Already, there has been some excellent Asian reception here. HLAZ was BOOMING in on the evening of August 31st.

1413 JOIF is audible almost nightly. Sometimes audio can be heard instead of their familiar high-pitched time signal.

China has been good on 1098, 1359, 1377 and of course 1521.

Taiwan Fisheries is another nights catch on 1143.

Also, the lower-powered BCC News Network in Tainan has been heard here on 1296.

Wondering whether to build a KAZ antenna. Were it not for the dread of the construction, I would have already done so. I hate construction projects of any kind as they seldom work.

Yes, 31/08 was indeed good over here in GER. As well as yesterday (02/09) had good propagation towards SE Asia / China.

Remember, that DPRK (KRE) is now back again on South Korean time (invented by the Japanese) means +8 instead of +8.5 hours (+9 at the moment because Koreans don't switch over to summer time while Europe mostly does). I will have to keep that in mind while waiting for their TOTH ID which used to come along at the bottom of the hour. That brings me to a huge problem: Before, it was easy to record North Korea at :30 and South Korea / Taiwan / China at :00. Now it is all at the top. https://www.washingtonpost.com/gdpr-con ... zone%2f%3f
