Yes, I've actually done some DXing!  Lots of stuff heard but mostly the
"Usual Suspects" from last year.  New for me have been Syria-827 which was
first heard back in November, Spain-1053 which was searched for last year
but never heard and the low powered Virgin Radio-1197 also made it for a
early Christmas present.  Conditions have been pretty good and improving the
past week and peaked nicely on Christmas Eve.  At 2131 Talk Radio-1089 was
completely annihilating WBAL, many stations with very strong signals - I
listened to Belgium-927 for about 20 minutes while getting some chow between
2200-2230 with no fading, signal about 10 over and rock steady.  Going back
a bit DEC 16 seemed to favor West Africans with Senegal 765 loud and almost
certain Gambia-648 between 2300-2400.  Hope everyone heard the pirate last
night on 1620 kHz.  Left the air very abruptly at 0314z - wonder if the FCC
showed up?  This is all for now - hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and
all the best in 1997.

 594  SAUDI ARABIA Duba DEC 18 0315+ - AA chants by a man, loud and //1521.
       Probably also this at 0229 with 15/S9 open carrier. [Merriman-VA]
 612  IRELAND FM2, Athlone DEC 22 0235 - rock, man/woman briefly in EE and a
       promo with many mentions of "Christmas" and htmn "Joy To The World".
       Good and heard several other times this past week - 567 at times is
       like a local! [Merriman-VA]
 774  EGYPT Abis DEC 17 2322+, DEC 18 0115 and later - very strong with AA
       music way over Spain.  Presume this as not //1044 Morocco during
       earlier time and Morocco should have been off at 0115.  DEC 24 0021 -
       again very strong with AA music over Spain.  [Merriman-VA]
 819  SPAIN R. Euzkadi, San Sebastian DEC 17 2334+ - on top with man in SS,
       likely Egypt behind with AA music and also traces of a third station
       with a woman in ??, possibly Poland.  [Merriman-VA]
 827  SYRIA Deir-Ez-Zoor DEC 22 2141+ - man in AA, good and //783 which was
       booming.  Also noted with good signal NOV 26 during visit from Ron
       Bailey. No sign of Morocco but I suspect they are still here.
 963  UNID DEC 20 0441+ - someone good with 1 kHz TT.  Tunisia?
1035  ITALY Radiodue, Firenze/Milano et al DEC 22 2124 - excellent with easy
       listening instrumental music and //1116.
1053  SPAIN COPE Castellon/Zaragoza DEC 18 0150 - man/woman in SS, briefly
       good but quickly covered by Talk Radio.  New for me. [Merriman-VA]
1062  UNID DEC 22 2153+ - someone way under a booming Denmark with man in ??
       Italy or Turkey seem most likely. [Merriman-VA]
1114.9 ANGOLA EP do Kuanza-Sul DEC 24 2132+ - briefly excellent with two men
       in PP - either teletalk or telephone interview.  Best signal ever
       from this. [Merriman-VA]
1116  ITALY Radiodue, Bari et al, DEC 22 2124 - easy listening instrumental
       music, 2125 man/woman in II, loud and //1035, no sign of Spain.
       Think also had same program on 936 but not 100% sure. [Merriman-VA]
1125  CROATIA Deanovec DEC 25 0105 - good but fast QSB over Spain with
       "Silent Night", excellent 0123 with man in presumed Croatian with
       what sounded like sermon and all //1134. [Merriman-VA]
1197  UNITED KINGDOM Virgin Radio DEC 25 0001 - man/woman in EE, brief
       music, in the mess but definitely //1215.  New for me and a nice
       early Christmas present! Nothing over 1 kw listed. [Merriman-VA]


1351  UNID Someone is off freq here - don't know if LA or domestic.  Noted
       evening of DEC 24 with weak signals and only audio I could copy was
       bits and pieces of music - couldn't even tell what type but didn't
       really sound LA.  Ideas? [Merriman-VA]

2.  KIYU 0500 - 0530 29 Dec 96: Nothing heard.

VRC, DL-2 Delay Line Phasing Unit, MWT-3S Regen Preselector; 4-150' slopers
with noise reducing transformers, 2' air core loop, Kiwa Loop, Quantum Loop

DEC 25 & DEC 26 just did some very casual tuning around at various times
during the evening, nothing much noted, 25th poor, 26th a bit better but
nothing exciting.  DEC 27 late afternoon and evening signals much stronger,
not rare but at times Portugal-666 was com- pletely pushing aside the
660/670 domestics.  Felt a bit under the weather so didn't really DX.  DEC
28 WOW!!! 2150z absolutely no domestic skip yet and TAs on the bottom half
of the band were boom- ing.  Even 1 kHz splits such as 621, 639, 711 etc
were fully read- able with virtually no QRM with the selectivity on the R8A
in the 6 kHz position and passband offset tuned away from the domestic
channel.  Someone on 621 behind Canaries/Spain, strong and almost equal at
times and Belgium most likely.  Many TA freqs were just a jumble.
Ireland-729 was completely over Spain for a new one; 855 had a series of
short pips behind Spain at about 2208 - Romania? Syria-827 excellent and
stronger at times than 783.  Interestingly enough some of the regular
powerhouses, such as Croatia-1134 were extremely weak.  Also not so much as
a carrier on 846 from Rome. About 2315z things pretty much to normal with
some pretty good TA signals remaining but domestic skip now up to normal
levels.  Did have someone on 1116 at 2325 with a man in what certainly
sounded like EE but not in long enough to be sure.  Didn't come up with much
new but it was good hearing the incredible signal levels. DEC 29 0010z just
finished a bandscan with nothing real exciting noted, Syria-783 still in but
827 just a weak het, Holland-1008 running their wonderful allnite TT - bet
European DXers love that. DEC 29 was a carbon copy of last night but if
anything TA signals were even stronger.  The low het on Spain-585 was so
strong that I expected some Tunisian audio but not to be.  Someone was
tearing up Portugal-666, probably the Lithuanian heard here last year.
Probable Russian on 1089 at 2210z over BBC with cl music and again at 2240.
Strong AA on 774 again and not //1044.  Again absolutely no trace of Rome on
846 at 2145z and 1035/1116 Italians were booming in.  Again the great
conditions only extended up to about 1200 kHz with only a few strong signals
above that.  DEC 30 the excellent cx continue but now the top end is booming
also.  Was walking over on Assateague Island and when I got back to the
truck at 2110z I turned on the radio and did a quick bandscan and it was
covered with strong hets.  How long will it last?  We will see.  HAPPY NEW
YEAR to everyone and see you 1n 1997.

 549  ALGERIA Les Trenbles 12/28 2213 - woman in AA, excellent, louder than
       891 which was // along with 153.  Fully equal to the 550 domestics.
 639  CZECH REPUBLIC DEC 29 2153+ - likely this almost equal to Spain with a
       man in ??.  Strong but severe QSB.  [Merriman-VA]
 684  YUGOSLAVIA Belgrade DEC 29 2158+ - likely this over Spain with easl
       listening Jazz instrumental, 2200 man in ?? with likely news.
 693  AZORES/UK Dec 28 2218 - BBC running on the spot news from Lima about
       the release of some of the hostages, 10/S9 signal and Azores weaving
       in and out of them with Blues tyoe music and //837. [Merriman-VA]
 702  SLOVAKIA DEC 29 2227 - woman in presumes Slovak, semi-classical
       instrumental music, 2229:45 man briefly in Slovak and back to music
       and //1098. 2nd station behind with man in ??, didn't sound AA and
       Spain is supposed to have moved.  Slovakia is supposedly closing all
       MW outlets except 1089 so get this while you can. [Merriman-VA]
 711  SAHARA Laayoune (El Aaiun) DEC 28 2224 - fully as loud as WOR with
       upbeat AA music. [Merriman-VA]
 729  IRELAND Radio One, Cork DEC 28 2201 - woman with news, brief weather
       forecast with temps 0 to 4 C, into brief instrumental music then
       woman again and all way over Spain.  2225 romantic Irish music, male
       vocal, //567 but even stronger at this time.  New for me.
 801  SPAIN RNE1 (7 stations) DEC 29 2203 - man in SS, fair and /585 etc.
       2nd station behind, Jordan? [Merriman-VA]
 827  SYRIA Dier-Ez-Zoor DEC 28 2207+ - AA music, loud and //783 which was
       even louder.  2317 good with woman in AA and again //783.  DEC 29
       2232 - man in AA, excellent and //783.  [Merriman-VA]
1116  UNID Dec 28 2325 - someone one briefly on top with a man in what
       sounded like EE with mention of "...15 minutes until...".  Couple of
       low powered BBC locals here. [Merriman-VA]
1386  KALININGRAD Bolshakovo DEC 29 2233 - talk in EE about art, mentions of
       Museum of Fine Art in the Volga Region, strong. [Merriman-VA]
1458  ALBANIA Fllake DEC 30 2143 - woman in Albanian, good and //6170.

RX  AOR 7030
ANT spiral loop 0.9m

I have one query which I hope someone in the Eastern USA can solve.  On two
occasions - each time around 0330 New York time (0830 local and UTC) I have
heard a station on 790.  It has been largely ads that I have heard and every
one has had a New York City telephone code (212). I also heard "WLIR"
mentioned though it was not necessarily an ID.  I can find no station in or
near New York city on 790 yet the ads for restaurants etc suggest a local

Has anyone any ideas?  Is there a New York city station on 790 or is someone
relaying either WLIR or another New York city station?

Also an Unid on 1570 - not much to go on - any ideas?

The fifth Newfoundland DXpedition took place from November 2 to November 17,
1996, at Cappahayden, Newfoundland, which is about 90 km south of St.
John's.  Although many SW stations were received, this report covers only
the MW catches. The SW catches have appeared in some DX bulletins already
(ODXA's "DX Ontario" and "Fine Tuning," among others).  Our interest in MW
is limited almost exclusively to non-North American stations, so the logs
include only a few North American stations.  We heard approximately 125
countries on MW, and the stations are listed in five (5) subsequent
E-mailings in frequency order by continent.  Full details and some personal
"musings" by the participants will be published in a forthcoming issue(s) of
the NRC's "DX News" and in the IRCA's "DX Monitor."

The participants, their dates of participation (UTC) and their receivers were:

LOG.  The IRCA MEXICAN LOG log lists all AM stations in Mexico by frequency,

(listed by state, then city) includes frequency, call and day/night power.
The log has been completely updated from the 1994 edition and carefully
cross-checked by IRCA members in Mexico and the US.  This is an
indispensable reference for anyone who hears Mexican radio stations.  Size
is 8 1/2" x 11" and three hole punched for easy binding (optional).
