Transpacific DX

kHz   Miles (km) 
 864  INDIA AIR Shillong  24Jan15 1100 - Clearly visible signal but only 10 dB above the noise floor, not enough for audio. Measured 864.000 kHz. Not observed an hour earlier.  25Jan15 1249 - Noted again this morning, still visible at this time. Faded out by 1320. Receiver sunrise 1208 UTC.  27Jan15 1200 - Signal observed but not as strong. Research has narrowed it to either South Korea or Shillong, India. I'm leaning toward India via grayline enhancement arriving from the northeast transpolar path rather than the northwest. Shillong transmitter sunset and Nashua receiver sunrise line up almost too nicely. Also, South Korea is listed at 839.999 kHz, and no other South Korea signals such as 972 and 1566 were observed.  31Jan15 1200 - Tentative. Weak signal at 864.000 kHz, still not strong enough for audio. Presumed Shillong, India, grayline enhancement arriving from the northeast rather than transpacific. Also found a weak 4970 Shillong signal. Shillong transmitter sunset 1135, Nashua receiver sunrise 1202 UTC. 4970 kHz faded out by 1315, while the 864 signal remained visible above the noise floor until 1430 UTC. Mauno Ritola confirmed 864.000 kHz measurement via remote subcontinental SDR.7616 (12257)
1548  AUSTRALIA 4QD Emerald  1Feb15 1100 - Tentative. Het against 1550 CBEF and R.Rebelde. Measured 1548.010 kHz. Not there earlier at 1000 UTC. Per Tim Tromp in Michigan, offset frequency matches 4QD Emerald, also received there.9821 (15805)
