Transpacific DX

kHz   Miles (km) 
 693  JAPAN JOAB, NHK2, Tokyo  18Oct2020 1000 - Clear NHK time marker, otherwise poor through 690 CKGM interference.6665 (10726)
 747  JAPAN JOIB, NHK2, Sapporo  18Oct2020 0959 - Fair, interference from 740 CFZM; announcement by woman over Japanese flute music bed, NHK time marker on the hour, parallel 693 and 774 kHz. Listen to mp3 audio clip.6178 (9942)
 756  SOUTH KOREA 756 AM, Yeoncheon  23Oct2020 1000 - Carrier observed with 693, 747, 774, 819, and 828 also observed. Initially presumed JOGK Japan, but there have been a few reports this week by fellow DX'ers of clandestine 756 AM Yeoncheon, South Korea, 100 kW, which Mauno Ritola at RealDX/mwoffsets confirmed is now on 24 hours.
 774  JAPAN JOUB, NHK2, Akita  18Oct2020 0900 - Poor; NHK time marker breaking through noise floor. At 0958 a much improved signal, interference from 770 WABC; man and woman in Japanese, then announcement by woman over Japanese flute music bed, NHK time marker on the hour.
 864  INDIA AIR Shillong  24Jan2015 1100 - Clearly visible signal but only 10 dB above the noise floor, not enough for audio. Measured 864.000 kHz. Not observed an hour earlier.  25Jan2015 1249 - Noted again this morning, still visible at this time. Faded out by 1320. Receiver sunrise 1208 UTC.  27Jan2015 1200 - Signal observed but not as strong. Research has narrowed it to either South Korea or Shillong, India. I'm leaning toward India via grayline enhancement arriving from the northeast transpolar path rather than the northwest. Shillong transmitter sunset and Nashua receiver sunrise line up almost too nicely. Also, South Korea is listed at 839.999 kHz, and no other South Korea signals such as 972 and 1566 were observed.  31Jan2015 1200 - Tentative. Weak signal at 864.000 kHz, still not strong enough for audio. Presumed Shillong, India, grayline enhancement arriving from the northeast rather than transpacific. Also found a weak 4970 Shillong signal. Shillong transmitter sunset 1135, Nashua receiver sunrise 1202 UTC. 4970 kHz faded out by 1315, while the 864 signal remained visible above the noise floor until 1430 UTC. Mauno Ritola confirmed 864.000 kHz measurement via remote subcontinental SDR.7616 (12257)
 972  SOUTH KOREA HLCA Dangjin  18Oct2020 1000 - Loud het against 970 WBGG ESPN; presumed HLCA with 1500 kW. Measured 972.000 kHz as listed. 23Oct2020 1000 - Carrier observed. 14Nov2020 1100 - Poor; time marker clearly heard through 970 WZAN interference. Listen to mp3 audio clip.
 981  TAIWAN Voice of Kuanghua, Hsinfeng  18Oct2020 1000 - Het against 980 WCAP; presumed this 250 kW signal. Measured 980.999 kHz as listed.
1188  SOUTH KOREA HLKX Seoul  14Nov2020 1100 - Poor, through 1180 WHAM interference; FEBC closing music, then announcement (unintelligible) leading up to the hour. Schedule listings indicate switch to VOA at this time.
1206  CHINA Yanbian RGD, Longjing  18Oct2020 1000 - Measured 1205.963 kHz, this the only signal listed with such a low offset, 200 kW. A much weaker signal observed at 1206 kHz.6402 (10303)
1548  AUSTRALIA 4QD Emerald  01Feb2015 1100 - Tentative. Het against 1550 CBEF and R.Rebelde. Measured 1548.010 kHz. Not there earlier at 1000 UTC. Per Tim Tromp in Michigan, offset frequency matches 4QD Emerald, also received there. 22Nov2020 1100 - Weak signals observed only on 1116 and 1548 kHz, these two are usually from Down Under.9821 (15805)
1566  SOUTH KOREA HLAZ Jeju  18Oct2020 1000 - Poor, interference primarily from 1570 CJLV; bits of music breaking through, most certainly HLAZ. Measured 1566.999 kHz as listed.
