Propagation and the weekend’s logs

Propagation has not been too bad this weekend. The Sun appears to have calmed down a bit, with no reported flares, although sun spot counts have been low. As we move into the winter season here in the Northern Hemisphere, we should see improved reception on the lower bands. Although, at this QTH, the local RFI hits the lower bands particularly hard, and of course, the interesting stations are usually low power, so it becomes a big challenge. I am primarily thinking about the myriad of stations in South America, who’s transmitter power rarely gets above 10 KW, as they are there for local coverage. But sometimes, when ‘the planets aline’, conditions can be that these stations come out of the noise. So of course, minimising the local noise becomes paramount, but again, a big challenge.

Anyway, enough waffling, here are the logs. It was nice to hear Voice of the Broad Masses from Eritrea, as it has been many months since I logged this one.

Weekend logs

Over this last weekend of 1/2 of October, I managed to get in some good listening sessions, amongst the chores! Propagation was good on Saturday, but decidedly worse on Sunday. However, there were still stations to hear and log. A new one for the log was R.Munansi, relayed from WWRB in the USA. From the Radio Munansi website comes the following info:

“Radio Munansi is a community radio station that seek to stimulate, educate and entertain our audience, to reflect the diversity of the local and world community, and to provide a channel for individuals, groups, issues and music that have been overlooked, suppressed or under-represented by the current Ugandan government.”

The transmission was in the Luganda language so no idea what was being discussed.

On Sunday, I managed to log Ethiopian BC Corp French transmission, not one I manage very often. So that was nice to get in the log.

It just goes to show that when conditions are marginal, don’t turn the radio off. Have a tune around, you never no what may make the trip!

And now for the logs.

Latest propagation and logs

Propagation over the last couple of weeks doesn’t seem to be particularly good. Maximum MUF during the day seems around about 12 Mhz. During the evening, the lower bands don’t appear to be performing too well either. My ability to copy either Radio Sonder Grense on 3320 or ABC Alice Springs on 4835 have been patchy to say the least. I am assuming these so-so conditions are what we can expect from this equinox part of the year. As the days here in the Northern Hemisphere become shorter, and the period of darkness is longer, then the lower bands will start to dominate. I would like to be able to get some of the rarer S American stations in the log, but in reality, this may be impossible living in a suburb with high levels of RF ‘mush’. An ‘dxpedition’ to the Lincolnshire Wolds may pay dividends here. I also keep promising myself to improve my antenna arrangements here, but other jobs around the house always seem to get priority! Maybe, just maybe, before the winter weather gets here it may happen!

And so to the logs. Mainly the usual ‘Big Guns’, but one or two other interesting ones.

Some afternoon listening

During the summer months I usually help out my XYL in her shop on Saturdays/Sunday afternoons, so most of my listening is confined to the evening hours. However, during the winter months when trade is, should we say, slack, I get the weekend ‘off’. So today, after doing some household chores I settled in to do some listening. A lot of stations are on during the afternoon which I don’t normally get to hear, so it makes a nice change. Or the ones I can hear in the evening may have a stronger signal earlier in the day as they may be beaming more toward the UK. Also, during the winter months, the higher bands (17m, 19m and 22m) have shut down by the evening. So within the space of an hour I logged the following.

My listening sessions are usually confined to hour chunks, as I use a laptop for logging and frequency reference. My laptop has an extremely noisy SMPS, so I can only run it on battery power whilst listening, otherwise unless I am listening to one of the high power stations, everything is swamped by hash. Unfortunately, as the laptop is about 7 years old, the battery only lasts for an hour before requiring re-charging. Hence the hour chunks.

The last one is a new one for me. Quite a good signal considering it is only a 50 KW transmitter.

Solar storms and this weeks logs

Well, that was a poor week for reception. With the K-index hitting 7 at times, and a large solar storm battering earth with 600 km/s winds, reception conditions could be described as less than ideal. Even the strong stations such as R. Thailand and V.O. Vietnam were down on their usual signal strengths. Both these stations can usually be received very well here in Lincoln during the early evening, but not this last week. The ‘difficult’ ones such as ABC from Alice Springs on 4835 Khz were just impossible at this QTH. I keep a close eye on Solarham, which gives regular K-index updates and details of which bands have the favourable propagation. I find it a very useful resource.

As of today, conditions have improved immensely, with a K-index of around 4. I noticed some noise still on 25 and 19 metres, but by this afternoon, that had died away. So lets hope it stays that way for a while longer!

Some recent logs

Time for listening has been limited just lately but I do get the odd moment! The last couple of days (14-17th August) has seen some poor propagation and MUF limits due to a quite large geomagnetic storm on the Sun. This knocked out all but the strongest stations on the 19, 22 and 25m bands. And even those like R. Thailand on its evening slot of 9390 was a lot strength than normal.

That being said, earlier in the month, propagation from S.E. Asia was very good with many of the stations such as V.O. Korea and R. Thailand coming in extremely strong. I also managed to log a new station, R. Dandal Kura, using the Babcock transmitters on Ascension.

So all is not lost with Shortwave. Yes, some of the ‘Big Guns’ have disappeared in recent years, but there is still lots of interesting stuff out there and some new stations appearing. And of course, there is all the utility, aero and ham band traffic. Lots to hear!

May logs

I thought I would post all my logs for May, as I haven’t had much time for individual posts. As mentioned in one of my posts, I am now using a homebrew pre-selector with the Tecsun Pl-600, and this has improved reception a lot. Not only does it peak up the signals well, but it removes all the image frequencies I was receiving previously. Well worth the effort and it was nice to do some homebrewing again.
