Re: Logs : HLL2 Seoul - Korea - Ron Howard Mar 18, 2018 19:07 UTC No.26
KOREA SOUTH. 5857.5, HLL2 Seoul, 1009-1012, March 18. In English with weather conditions at different observatories around Asia (Shanghai, Hong Kong, etc.); providing wind direction, wind speed in meters per second, air pressure in hectopascals and
temperature in Celsius; audio better than normally heard (clearer).

Was very interested to note 1209-1212 they gave different weather info; for locations in Korea(?) for "this afternoon," "tomorrow afternoon" and "day after tomorrow"; first time I have actually observed they don't repeat the same info every hour.

Re: Logs : VMW Wiluna (Radiofax) - Australia - Amano Mar 20, 2018 13:21 UTC No.27
Hello! Ron-san and Hiroyuki.

AUSTRALIA. 15615, VMW Wiluna, 0845-0855, March 20.
It was noisy, but I made a picture.
The center is Australia for a drawn map, and the lower
right is New Zealand.
"Severe TC Marcus" exists on the northwest on a map.
The air pressure is 952hp. It seem to be going to the
west and It turn aside to Australia.
These weather maps are the Australian eastern hour,
5pm (17AEDT / 06UTC). Australia is daylight saving
time right now. By the way,it's expected to end on
Apr 1, 2018 Australian daylight saving time.
A schedule account on the map would change to AEST.

south more than Hokkaido.

There is a doubtful cloudy weather on the Philippine east side.
Is it a typhoon?

CHINA. 17398-USB, Guangzhou Coast Radio Station (presumed), on 
May 14, with 0406* and *0501-0506*; woman in Chinese, but poor signal,
with assume marine weather. Very happy to find they are still active, as I
had not checked for a long time. Find that their former website is gone.
Couldn't locate a current one for them.

This from their 2013 eQSL to me: "Guangzhou Coast Station was established
to participate in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea
(SOLAS) and to fulfill the responsibilities and obligations under the
International Maritime Organization (IMO). It provides safety information
to ships at sea on distress alert, safety, rescue communication, ship-to-shore
public communication, weather forecast on China marine waters, and
navigational warnings," from Mingbiao Luo.

Re: Logs : Zhoushan Marine Meteorological Radio Station - Ron Howard Jul 24, 2018 15:03 UTC No.39
CHINA. 3303-USB, Zhoushan Marine Meteorological Radio Station, 1113-1115*;
in Chinese. Last time I heard this station was back in Dec. 2008! Website -
Zhoushan Meteorological Bureau -

Google translation:

"Zhoushan Marine Meteorological Radio Station is located in Putuoshan Scenic
Area, Zhoushan City. It was established in November 1994. It is the earliest
professional radio station in the country to provide weather protection for fishing
vessels and other vessels at sea. After sea distance test, the effective listening
distance can reach 500. More than a kilometer. The radio station adopts sea
surface wave and sky wave synchronous transmission mode, and the antenna
is vertically polarized and transmitted; the signal transmission is transmitted by
a 2KW single sideband high power transmitter, which has the characteristics of
large power and long propagation distance. The transmission frequency of the
radio station is 3303KHZ. As long as the vessel operating at sea is equipped
with a short-wave single-sideband receiver, it will be able to listen to the
professional meteorological information released by the Zhoushan Marine
Meteorological Observatory four times a day in any sea area of China and the
three times a day issued by the Central Meteorological Observatory."
