Fwd: Loggings 20-30 December 2016

I see that the weather cooperated enough to let you back into the great outdoors for several DXpeditions.  Some nice loggings to end the year.  I have one quick question about the Zanzibar log.  Was the ZBC English news on 20 December at 1700 UTC or 1800 UTC.  The time check for 9 o'clock fits 1800 (UTC + 3 hours) although the flow of the log seemed to imply 1700 UTC for the English news.  I have tuned several times for the 1800 UTC the English news feed only to hear Swahili news instead.

20 December 2016 Micro-DXpedition: 

6200           UNID.  Something here at the start 1600.  Rock mx coming up at 1603, and recognized "Shadow Dancing" by Andy Gibb at 1606.  Distorted.  Suddenly blasted for abt 5 seconds at 1608:40 and went off.  Pirate testing a xmtr??  (Valko 20 Dec.)

7465           SINGAPORE   BBC (relay)  1620 feature w/actualities in EG, //7445 Madagascar.  Both weak but partially readable.  (Valko 20 Dec.)

22 DECEMBER 2016 Micro-DXpedition: 

7120             SOMALIA   R. Hargeisa  M anncr from 1316 but modulation way to low.  If the modulation would be at 100%, this would be nice.  (Valko 22 Dec.)

7175             ERITREA   V.O. the Broad Masses of Eritrea  1337 HoA mx, then M anncr at 1339, mx bridge, and M again.  More HoA mx at 1342 briefly and cont. tlk.  Not as strong as Hargeisa.  No sign of 7146.56 as Jim Young observed independently as well.  (Valko 22 Dec.)

 (Valko 22 Dec.)

15140         OMAN  R. Sultanate of Oman  Signal on at 1359:11.  Audio up at 1402:18 but not 100% and sounding as though a mic was placed up against a telephone receiver.  M w/EG nx.  Audio gradually cleared up in 5 min. but still weak.  1408 fanfare mx, then ad for Omantel and long slick promo w/list of FM stns ending w/ID for 90.4, then live M DJ in EG  at 1411.  (Valko 22 Dec.)

6115           CONGO  R. Congo (tent.)  Signal came on at 0535:45 and almost immediately tlk by M in progress sounding like a remote.  Diff. M briefly at 0540.  Sounded like an interview.  Just a little too weak to tell the lang.  Sign on time suggests Congo.  Gradually faded.  (Valko 24 Dec.)

4894.92      BRAZIL??  R. Novo Tempo??  Found a signal here at 0856.  Nowhere near enough for audio, but did find R. Novo Tempo on the exact same freq using Artur Nogueiras SDR.hu web rx.  Nice ID at 0901.  (Valko 24 Dec.)

4835           AUSTRALIA   ABC, Alice Spring  1419 "2000 Miles" Christmas song by The Pretenders, usual W host.  1430 fanfare and ID by M leading into the nx.  1440 "I'll Be Home for Christmas" by W vclist.  Most audible yet.  Still able to hear the mx at 1457 but not good enough to recognize songs.  Last remnants of audio at 1501.  (Valko 24 Dec.)

4920           UNID.   Hearing this again at home like at the SGLs.  Thought for sure it was // 5015 w/Bro. Stair at 1430, but definitely not at 1458 as it had mx and 5015 still had Stair.  (Valko 24 Dec.)

9800           FRANCE  Norddeutscher Rundfunk (via Issoudun)  Signal on 1859:48 and audio up at 1900 w/W anncr in GM w/ment of NDR and pres. nx, then Christmas Eve pgm for sailors at sea w/men and W hosts.  1906 "The Christmas Song" in EG.  Poor signal and fady but did improve.  Found // to 6125 (Nauen) at 1923 w/"Oh Holy Night".  (Valko 24 Dec.)

 (Valko 24 Dec.)

3325           INDONESIA   RRI Palangkaraya (pres.)  Could just barely hear mx when found at 2209.  Too weak to tell what kind.  M anncr at 2215.  Tried to confirm using SDR.hu web rxs but one in Japan was tied up and the one in South Korea wasn't on line.  Australia was already into daylight.  This is a near perfect grayline the whole way.  The quick fade indicates it's Palangkaraya.  Would be the first evening Indo in years.  (Valko 24 Dec.)

9664.92      BRAZIL   R. Voz Missionaria  Tuned in at 2325 and was surprised to hear the end of a full EG ID by M "…(freqs and meterbands) RVM radio, Brazil".  Beautiful signal too.  Of course by the time I started recording, the ID ended.  Will have to keep this in mind and hope they air this ID at this time again in the future.  (Valko 24 Dec.)

4920           UNID.   Around 1215, found it was indeed //5015 WRMI which had 2 or 3 programs running simultaneously.  A real mess.  Fixed at 1230 and only Bro. Stair was on.  But oddly, 4920 was 10 seconds behind 5015.  Checked and found on sev. SDR.hu rxs on the east coast.  After 1300, this had another pgm not carried on any other freq.  Not hrd the next 3 days.  (Valko 25 Dec.)

2520           USA   WOCO, Onconto, WI (2nd harmonic)  Was on the freq and waiting for s/on.  Did indeed come on at 1156:51, deadair, then audio up w/live W DJ at 1159 giving ID, ment of AM and FM stereo, QTH, date, nx intro, and into US Radio News.  Strong and clear.  For a Youtube video of the reception, use this link  https://youtu.be/blGtK-rW6nw  (use 480p quality setting for best viewing)  (Valko 26 Dec.)

5005           EQUATORIAL GUINEA   R. Bata (tent.)  0556-0616, decent signal here and thought hrd bits of audio at times.  Until they fix their audio, this will be imposs.  (Valko 29 Dec.)
