An old one, but wow! Asiatic MW DX 12-11-12.

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 18 Jul 2019 20:53

I recorded this SDR file at my first Skegness QTH on November 13th 2012 at 15:00. Although this file has 'been and gone', I decided to download it again and go through it. Wow! Am I glad I did.

Back in 2012, I would have had far less of a clue as to what I was listening to. Now I have a better idea and I realise that there were some great catches which I missed. Asian reception seems to be far better than anything I have had at this QTH. There were sooo many Chinese stations heard then.

It's also interesting to hear how many more European stations were on the air back then, yet I hear Japanese, Chinese all over the place and quite a few unidentified stations.

If anybody fancies reminiscing over the medium wave band from November 2012, then give this file a tune. It's an SDR wav file, recorded on the Perseus, but it plays perfectly on Jaguar, unlike some Perseus files.

I hope this will be of interest.

Thanks for that. It also plays fine in HDSDR.
LW has some nasty buzzing but MW is fine.

You're welcome Peter.

I remember now, this was recorded with a beverage at the old RAF Wainfleet site. The timing might be slightly out as my Windows clock was wrong.

Yes, long wave is shocking. The interference would have been from my mains inverter. Good job MW is untouched.

What is the ID on 1512 right at the end of the recording? It sounds like Linxia RGD from China, but I cannot be sure. I remember the child's voice before it. A Japanese type time signal is in there too. So much happening in that file. I guess 1476 is Lamphun, Thailand. What about 1350? The Philippines?

Thanks John. Very interesting.

Don't ask me to ID anything though !

It's nice to hear some of the interval signals that lasted that long.

1350 couldn't be whatever was on the Armenia transmitter back then could it ?

It could indeed.

I need to re-post some of these IDs to RealDX, especially the ID on 1512. That recording would have been amazing with the absence of the Europeans who have left the band now.

I might post a link to that file to RealDX, but I hope it doesn't seem like I am posting the file because I want everybody to DX it for me. Of course, I hope that some interesting DX comes from it.

you could check around that day for the PHL relay of VOA on 1170, suppose it was still on back then...regularly heard in 2010...

I used to get the VOA Philippines relay on 1170 occasionally. The Yankee Doodle theme would be at equal levels with the UK stations when conditions allowed.

In this recording, I hear a CNR1 outlet on 1170 which could well be the Ji'an transmitter, plus the long tone is probably HLSR from Gimje. No sign of VOA here.

1575 is interesting. no VOA there either but two Chinese time signals, one lagging slightly behind the other. (Headphones required!) I think there is also a late Oriental time signal at 40 seconds.
