China on MW in August!

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 07 Aug 2018 00:58

I don't know how likely this is, but I've never had anything from China or elsewhere in the Far East at this time of year. I know how difficult this is from past seasons when I have been looking for CRI 1521 from the end of August. CRI was in at 19:00. It was weak, but by 19:59 it was completely dominant over Saudi Arabia! Sign-off was on the dot at 20:00, as usual.

Then I checked other tohs.

972 HLCA KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, Dangjin. Only time pips heard. V weak at 21:00.
981 CNR1, multi-tx. Time pips, very weak
1098 CNR11, Golmud, fair at 21:00.
1143 BEL3 Taiwan Chü Yuyeh Kuangpo Tienta, Baisha. Clear ID 21:00. Weak.
1359 2 x CNR1 txs with time signal. Very weak.
1377 CNR1, Xingyang, good at 21:00! 100% copy.

I saw that there were some reports on MWLIST of Asia over the past few days.

Checking now, even I was getting China on 1377 last night Nothing on any of the others though.

That's excellent Simon. I wish I'd tried in July. Let's hope there aren't any unforseen upsets on the sun this winter.

Not forgetting the several Xinjiangs on 1494. Yes heard one of them in Belgium during July. But it's only this week that I've had the echo indicating that more than one of them is getting through. Sign on at 23:00 if I remember correctly.
