Emission for syntony Valparaiso Playa Ancha Radio CBV

A better "tuning aid chart" received today. While this is better than the previous one, still needed image processing (slant fix) and it's not complete. It is obvious I got the final part of the transmitted "chart".

8678 kHz, 2247z

The following transmissions were noisy so I didn't uploaded any of them. Again it is a stormy day, we had 2 X-ray flares within 20 hours.

3-day Solar-Geophysical Forecast issued Dec 14 at 22:00UTC

Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be moderate to high. Isolated X-class flares from Region 930 remains a possibility.

Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to range from active to major storm levels for 15 December. This activity is due to the CME observed on 13 December. Unsettled to active conditions are expected for 16 and 17 December.

That's not a promising forecast... It really discourages me from hunting other HF-Fax transmission from distant places... But right now I have Louisiana... Stay tuned...

I just captured my first "emission for syntony" fax from Chile. On 17144.66 (17146.4).
I have the complete box but only 9 lines, you have more lines and not a complete box. Any ID why?

Probably they updated their chart or the chart is created "on the fly" and sometimes they let it run more. Since my chart is rather old, it's a nice idea to try again and see what I can get. What time did you received the chart?

2150z was the start.

Tell me a little bit about your majic transformer. I was going to E-M you about it.

OK I should sit down and write an article about if :-)

Stay tuned...
