The past few weeks there has been an interesting (to me) opening that happens as the “regular” daytime skip is winding down. Once the skip starts to sound like it is bouncing in and out with sometimes a ringing sound I flip down to channel 4, and it sounds like a sea of Japanese language. I am far, far from a language expert mind you. I would be very interested to find out where this might be coming from? Has anyone else heard this at all?

Am it is on ch 4 - and coming from Japan. I have been using that ch. for my beacon into the Asia coast for many years.
Here is one I found this week: ch. 13 usb is used by many stations in Indonesia, there has been lots of traffic on there, just like ch 38. But of coarse their not speaking English.

Also might add; that ch 40 usb is a big talk ch. in the Philippines.
The only place that I have found SSB from Japan has been mostly around the .555 usb area.

Whoops - made a big mistake, I said ch 13 usb was used by stations in Indonesia, not so, it should read ch 33 usb. Sorry about that.

    There will be NO FT8 robots running unattended at Bouvet,:ROFLMAO:

    10M BAND.....>28400 SSB .... Always give your full callsign. Listening is the key so be sure we call you before replying. 3Y0J will always listen up (using split) so it will be useless to call us on our transmission frequency.

    I like these guys already. :cool: Sounds to me like ROBO callers in ANY Mode will be ignored!!!!(y)

    3Y0J: Update January 29, 2023: Ken estimates Marama should arrive at Bouvet on Monday evening just before sunset. He says he anticipates a good weather window for at least two days then. The team will attempt to move the equipment and supplies onto the island using the zodiac then. They have two zodiacs. They are hoping to accomplish it in those two days. :cool:
