Skegness Log: 2016-09-26 (MW East Asia)

1377 2100 CHN CNR 1, Xingyang/SARFT554 (HE) Zhongguo Zhi Sheng IDs, thanks Jari Savolainen 
              at RealDX for spotting these.  Fair  8306 km
1422 2100 CHN Taiyuan RGD, Taiyuan (SX) TENTATIVE. Jari Savolainen at RealDX
              think this is 
possibly Taiyuan RGD but no IDs heard. Language is
              Mandarin Chinese - thanks 
to Tony Magon at RealDX for this.  Weak  7996 km

I am not including 1422 in my master log as there is some uncertainty about this. It looks like it's the same station reported by Jan Edh on the 23rd.

I am surprised to be hearing such good signals from East Asia with conditions being so disturbed. This must be how it is. I've never really studied Asia under these conditions. The South Korean regulars on 972, 1170 & 1566 were completely absent! The Taiwan Fisheries station on 738 and 1143 were both doing quite well this evening. So it seems there's always something of interest from Asia, no matter what the indices.

I haven't bothered with overnight recordings in view of the recent disturbance, but it's probably time to swing the flag towards South America now with this disturbance becoming more sustained.

Here are recordings of the above:
