  • Geminids Ms - FM

    An interesting Geminids Ms run here in Burnt River ON. Helped that 89.9 CJKX-1 ON Sunderland, one of my closes semilocals, was off for about a week starting in the middle of the shower. Plus two other semis were also off afterwards for a whole overnight and early morning. I still have many clips to go through, and lots of unIDs to work on, but here is a report just to give a sense of what went on.

    Almost all of this was unattended, running three to five radios at a time. Listening to Ms live is like listening to paint dry. Better top be DXing AM, reading a good book, watching a movie, going for a long walk, etc. And letting MP3 recorders do the dirty work. I then run clips through Audacity and just listen to the spikes.

    Perhaps the most fun was on 92.7 hearing what sounded initially to me to be Russian. I checked the schedule of CKJS Winnipeg MB, the only multi-ethnic station on the channel. It recently moved from 810 to 92.7 so I have been anticipating it. I checked the schedule for two clear bursts of talk, and realized my receptions coincided with a Bulgarian and a Ukrainian show. I can't tell Ukrainian from Russian - they're too close for my ears, and I couldn't tell Bulgarian from many other surrounding languages. But with some expert help from people who aren't DXers I was able to determine these indeed match the language programmed at those times on CKJS.

    Anotrher highlight: A clear echo, with the second station delayed by a fraction of a second, on a Montreal Canadiens hockey game on 93.3. Actually had the game itself live once, and the post-game show twice, each time with two stations. A Quebec two-fer! Both are previously heard via Ms but fun to get both together, three times. With thanks to Quebec DXer Sylvain Naud for confirming various aspects of what was heard.

    Here is an initial log. I have more from Sept 15 onwards, and as you can see many unIDs to review.

    92.7 at 0925 one 12/13 should be WNUU Starview PA. Greenfield is in Dauphin Country as is Starview. 92.7 at 2058 on 12/14 is also likely WNUU.

      Thanks, Russ. I think these two 92.7 unIDs are more complicated than I realized. I've gone through the clips yet again. I am no longer sure Greenfield is such, nor am I sure if it's Furniture, Furnishings, or something else. And there is a Harrisburg basketball team that could possibly be in SD. I'll post a follow-up of those either here with a later update of the logs, or in the unIDs section if I continue to be at a loss as to their potential ID. But I appreciate your suggestions.
