ASIAN AUDIO FILES

All  the following MP3 files are labelled with station details, UTC time and date of recording. Please make sure that your player is set to show this information.


ARMENIA, Voice of Russia at 1377 KHz. Normally France is so dominant that I'm not used to pay attention at this channel. It was a pleasant surprise to hear VOR Interval signal during a France Info weakness.


ARMENIA on 864 KHz with Radio Liberty airing a program in Turkmen language. Thanks to Dmitry Mezin at RealDX for ID UPDATED - Now listen this other clip of of Radio Liberty also in Turkmen language. Thanks again to Dmitry Mezin for ID.


ARMENIA, Voice of Russia on 1395 at nominal just above the  strong Albanian offset at 1394.850. Using USB mode.


ARMENIA, Denge Kurdistan from the Gavar relay at 1395 KHz. According to DX reports, their signal went on the air from December 2017 to April 2018, so this might be considered as a rare catch. Heard on February 8, 2018 at around 21:50 UTC, just prior sign-off at 22:03. NEW.


CHINA, on 1521 KHZ with CRI-Radio Kitaya in Russian. Full ID given with CRI web address. The DX gods were with me! Just by chance, I was tuning 1521 normally invaded by Saudi Arabia but the 35° beverage really bumped BSKSA leaving CRI alone. That was a pure transmitter dawn enhancement effect with short but good peaks - Here it is again after a long wait in late 2012 - Thanks to some DX Alerts coming from many Dxers of the Northeast NA, it could be heard again here with a good signal in Nov 2017. NEW.


CHINA, on 1098 KHz with CNR likely from the high powered transmitter in Golmud. This one caught me by surprise at my sunset - Here's the ToH annoucement with time pips heard  minutes before at weaker strength. Thanks to Bruce Portzer, Chuck Hutton and Nigel Pimblett at RealDX for the ID - A year after (Jan 2012), it came back. The following clip is divided in 2 parts when the signal strength was at its best on the Perseus file - Probably my best shot here from Nov 2017, alongside 1521. NEW - Again here, and quite decent from Jan 19, 2018. NEW.

  

CHINA, on 1143 KHz with multiple offset carriers. The capture bellow is from November 9th 2010 around 11:30 UTC. Signals were too weak for some readable audio. The Perseus was hearing the 35° Beverage.











INDIA, All India Radio on 1071 KHz with their 800 Kw transmitter located in Rajkot in the Northwest of the country. I have been waiting for this one. I finally heard it for the first time in January 2013. Signal popped in great thanks to some transmitter dawn enhancement. A pity that the program aired has a muffled sound - Here’s another shot this time at the end of October of the same year. Thanks to Alokesh Gupta at RealDX for the confirmation - Here’s a freshest cut from November 6, 2017 at 00:54 UTC. It was confirmed to be Urtu language by Sudipta Ghose. NEW.


JAPAN, 747 KHz  JOIB NHK2 Sapporo. I was lucky to get something at my first attempt. Fortunately, I've got a parallel with Akita 774 KHz where I could barely distinguish the same musical segment. Signal was caught around 10:30 UTC on October 27th of 2008 with the 35° te rminated beverage. Thanks to Bruce Portzer and Brent Taylor on the MWDX YG for IDing woman's Japanese language at the end of the clip. Also, please have a look at the waterfall display on the Perseus while the music was playing. Compare the 747 carrier with others nearby including that horrible IBOC sideband at the right of the screen.


JAPAN, (probable) 693 KHz  JOAB NHK2, Tokyo with a weak male voice in Japanese. Thanks to Tatu Shinzo for having a listen to my clip. He wrote me that it sounds like Japanese pronunciation but is unable to catch a word.


RUSSIA, Radio Rossii on 225 Khz, a West-Siberian outlet from Surgut mixing here with Poland. That was the same night of my first ever listen of Norway 153 in 01/2013. No Luxembourg effect here but just enough of a dawn enhancement from the transmitter side, this added to tremendous LF propagation.
