ISRAEL  



The Israel Amateur Radio Club (I.A.R.C) is sponsoring a national award program entitled: Holyland Christianity On The Air (HOCOTA).
The activity starts during this year's Christmas period 23 to 25 December with four special event stations - 4X2XMAS, 4X3XMAS, 4X7XMAS and 4X9XMAS).

Program structure:

The program will include amateur radio operations from numerous sites in the holy land that hold major significance to every Christian that includes the following sections based on biblical citation, Christian tradition, beliefs and heritage as well as documented history, archeology and other research:

Section A: Locations associated with miracles performed by Jesus Christ (30-40)
Section B: Christian Forts/fortified cities (20-30)
Section C: Unique Christian Monasteries (10-20)
Section D: Highly significant Churches (10)
Section E: Locations of major Christian battle fields (10-15)
Section F: Locations along what is known as ‘Jesus’ trail’ (5-10)

Program/Section awards eligibility are as follows:
1. HOCOTA Section Award - At least 10 QSOs or 70% of sites worked (according to the lesser) with a station operating from a listed section location.
2. HOCOTA General Award - Any 50 QSOs with any station under the program, on condition that a minimum of one station from each of the above sections are included. Different awards (gold/premium) may apply for any additional 50 QSO`s.

Christmas Special 2016 Operation
Initiation of the HOCOTA Program activities will commence during Christmas 2016 (23-25 December) by four to five multi operator stations. The current sub-program is called the ‘Jesus Miracles Award’ since most of the operation is within the miracle block of the HOCOTA Program:

1. 4X9XMAS - Tabagha (the 2 fish and 5 loafs of bread miracle)
2. 4X2XMAS - Yarden it (Jordan River Baptism site - section B)
3. 4X7XMAS - Kursi (the ‘Pigs Miracle’)
4. 4X3XMAS - Mount of Beatitudes (Jesus’ famous speech and gathering of the Apostles-section B)
5. 4X0XMAS - Kapernaum - several miracles (optional)

Eligibility for an award in this specific operation is for working four QSO`s with two different stations (call signs) out of the active stations.
A QSO is a valid contact per band/mode but not more than two on the same day of operation with the same station.
Requests for certificate should be sent to 4Z4DX@iarc.org who will email the certificate to eligible hams.

General rules:  Duplicate radio contacts (SWL) can be conducted by different digital modes as on one band as well as on other bands. Spots in the Web cluster are welcomed. Contacts may be held by appointment (sked). We recommend schedules to use narrow-band protocols. Other digital contests may take place during Days of Activity, therefore we ask participants not to occupy for ordinary QSO those frequencies where other contesters are active. The radio contacts conducted in digital contests during Digital Activity Days are also counted for the participants.

For the contacts in the seldom-used digital modes the following schedule is suggested for the 10 days of January and May activity. This calendar is advisory in nature.

The exciting news is that for the first time in the history of OF9X, Old-Father-Nine-Christmas, the elves will step forward so that you can get to know them and their part in the Christmas scene. And better yet, you can make an effort to find them together with your young ones whether within your family or in your immediate neighborhood,

b. If you are outside of Europe your points are doubled (2).
c. Summing up the QSO points and multiplying them with contacted number of elves makes your Frozen Santa Bag, the final score.
d. Only 2016 QSOs are valid for the Bag. If you miss the elf identity for whatever reason no problem as you can send your QSO listing to Santa HQ and these elves would count them for you.
e. (santapoints@sral.fi ); you can also look for your QSOs at the Club Log and each slot may illustrate the elf you had contacted.

List of Elves!: Arto, OH2KW (ART); Arttu, OH2FB (ATU); Jyri, OH2KM (JYR); Martti, OH2BH (MAR); Niko, OH2GEK (NIK); Pauli, OH5BQ (PAU); Pekka, OH2TA (PEK); Pertti, OH2BEE (PER); Raimo, OH2BCI (RAI); Tom, OH6VDA (TOM); Pertti, OH2PM (SIM) and Erik, OH2LAK (LAK)

December 16th, his XYL Abbey flies home, and David will take the ferry
to St. Lucia (J6, [NA-108]) to stay with Frans, J69DS, until Thursday,
December 22nd. David states, "My operating schedule will pretty much
be limited to the early morning hours and the late afternoons." The best
way to find him is on PSK Automatic Propagation Reporter:
                    https://pskreporter.info/pskmap.html
Callsigns to look for are FG/W2LNX from Guadeloupe, FM/W2LNX from Martin-
ique and either J6/W2LNX or J68LNX in St. Lucia. He plans to operate
almost exclusively PSK31 or PSK63 using a KX2 QRP radio with a Buddipole
full size 20m vertical antenna. Also, he will bring two bobbins of wire
to make a 30m or 40m dipole or inverted Vee. For QRP work, David plans
to find some mountain tops. When he has electric power, he plans to use
a Hardrock-50 50 watt amplifier that Marc, N4DR, built for him. He does
mention, "I will be casually operating for no more than one or two hours
a day. I will be with the missus on Guadeloupe and Martinique and I don't
want to irritate her too much with my ham radio stuff. On St. Lucia, I
should have a bit more time. I still don't know my callsign is yet in
St. Lucia, but I received an invoice from the St. Lucia ministry. So
my application has been approved. The callsign will be J6/W2LNX or J68LNX,
probably J68LNX since it is a renewal application." David plans to use
LoTW as he did last year when he was on St. Lucia, but has to generate
certificates for Guadeloupe and Martinique.

  ALL QSLs will be handled by Herbie, G6XOU, and NOT the individual
operator. The I.S.W.L. is a member of the European PSK Club. All QSL
info is on  or  or via .
NO LoTW. I.S.W.L. Awards are available to all Hams and SWLs, see
 for full details. The eQSL.cc cards ARE welcomed for
their awards.


J6, ST. LUCIA (Buddipole DXpedition). Operators Budd/W3FF, Jeff/KO7M,
Mike/KI8R, Matt/K0BBC, Harold/WJ1B, Chris/W6HFP, Tom/W6LDX and Paul/W6PNG
will be active as J68FF, J6/KO7M, J6/KI8R, J6/K0BBC, J6/WJ1B, J68HF,
J6/W6PNG and J6/W6LDX, respectively, from Chateau Devaux on Saint Lucia
Island (NA-108) between December 4-12th. Activity will be on 160-6 meters
using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. Operations will be QRP or 100 watt
transceivers into Buddipole antennas. QSL via their home callsigns or LoTW.


J7, DOMINICA (J7 Operation Wrap-up). Dan, K1TO, informs OPDX, "We operated
J70BH for the CQ WW CW contest and made a little over 10,000 QSOs. Martti,
OH2BH, also operated for a few days before and afterward -- no idea what
his final QSO count is. I activated J70TO mostly on Monday evening after-
ward and made about 600 QSOs, mostly on 160 & 40M. I think that we will
be sending QSLs via the bureau to all who are in our log, but that is
not yet confirmed." 


KH6, HAWAII. Andy, VE7AHA, will once again be active as KH6/VE7AHA from
Big Island (OC-019) between January 14th and1 March 11th, 2017. Activity
will be on various HF bands, but he states, "I will do more low band radio
as the high bands are getting very fragile!!" QSL via his home callsign.


KP4/WP4, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS. The "Buddies of the Caribbean", operators
Tom/K4ZGB, Bryan/N8WD, Rick/AA4W and Robert/KE4AL, will be active as
WP2/K4ZGB, KP2/N8WD, KP2/AA4W and KP2/KE4AL, respectively, from Saint
Croix Island (NA-106) between December 6-14th. The location of their
DXpedition is from "My Mountain Breeze" which is the location of the
station NP2N . They
will also be operating from his station and will have a station in the
ARRL 10 meter Contest, NPOTA (Salt River Bay, Christiansted, and Buck
Island), QRP, and beach operations will also take place. Activity will
be on 160-6 meters using CW, SSB and the Digital modes. In addition,

OF9X UPDATE (Press Release) [edited]:
      SANTA HUNT -- OF9X ACTIVE FROM DECEMBER 01 THRU DECEMBER 31, 2016
      SANTA RADIO, OF9X IS INTRODUCING THE HARD WORKING TWELVE (12) ELVES
  As for many years Santa is now setting up for his world tour ­ including
Amateur Radio -- and will provide your family an added pleasure for this
Christmas. The exciting news is that for the first time in the history of
OF9X, Old-Father-Nine-Christmas, and the elves will step forward so that
you can get to know them and their part in the Christmas scene. And better
yet, you can make an effort to find them together with your young ones
whether within your family or in your immediate neighborhood.
  There are twelve elves operating OF9X and they indicate themselves with
the 3-letter identity thus your maximum elf-multiplier can be twelve (12).
  You should try to work them on all amateur bands and modes (CW/SSB/DIGI
from 630m to 70 cm) and each QSO would give you a one-point (1). If you
are outside of Europe your points are doubled (2). Summing up the QSO
points and multiplying them with contacted number of elves makes your
Frozen Santa Bag, the final score. Only 2016 QSOs are valid for the Bag.
  If you miss the elf identity for whatever reason no problem as you can
send your QSO listing to Santa HQ and these elves would count them for you.
; you can also look for your QSOs at the ClubLog and
each slot may illustrate the elf you had contacted. 
                         Here is your slate of elves:
           Arto, OH2KW (ART); Arttu, OH2FB (ATU); Jyri, OH2KM (JYR);
           Martti, OH2BH (MAR); Niko, OH2GEK (NIK); Pauli, OH5BQ (PAU);
           Pekka, OH2TA (PEK); Pertti, OH2BEE (PER); Raimo, OH2BCI (RAI);
           Tom, OH6VDA (TOM); Pertti, OH2PM (SIM) and Erik, OH2LAK (LAK)


  Your efforts will be rewarded by Santa Awards with the following awards:
   A:  SKC- Award (Santa is King of Christmas);       minimum of 50 points
   B:  WMC - Award (Warm and Memorable Christmas);    minimum of 35 points
   C:  RNS -Award (Remember those Red Nose Elves);    minimum of 20 points 


  The full-color awards will be sent by email if you send your log and your
point calculation to  by January 05, 2017 ­ please
also include the name to be printed on the award and the email address the
awards should be sent to. 
  High scoring stations with their children in each continent will be
offered an opportunity to have a two-way conversation with true and live
Santa during the Christmas week. More details on this will be presented
at  where Santa video/audio screening will take place.
    May this Christmas be a good one for all children of the world.
                        73 from Santa Claus and Elves

  REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE :
  The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
  (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
  Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
  benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
  and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
  dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
  new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
  which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

against a dreaded disease, even beating it back once, but in the end it
returned. (He was a valiant fighter as the Ham World knows in his efforts
& attainments in contesting.)" Steve was a Dxer and a Contester. OPDX and
its readers would like to send out our deepest sympathy to the family and

BULGARIA   Radio Bulgaria on mediumwave; new BNR regional station at
Kardzhali   Radio Bulgaria closed their shortwave service in early 2012,
switching most of their multilingual service to online streaming. Their
Turkish output however can still be heard through the ether on 576 kHz
from the country's high-powered and only remaining mediumwave transmitter
at Vidin, presumably intended mainly for Bulgaria's sizable Turkish
minority. These broadcasts are at 0600-0700 UT, 1300-1400 & 1830-1930 UT
[presumably an hour earlier in summer] and in contrast to the slick modern
presentation of the exclusively online Radio Bulgaria programming they
open with the same interval signal and signature tune Radio Sofia / Radio
Bulgaria has used since the 1960s, identifying as 'Bulgaristan Radyosu'.

These broadcasts can also be heard via Radio Kardzhali, which opened
on 9 May 2016 as the latest of nine regional stations of Bulgarian
National Radio (BNR). Kardzhali Province has an ethnic Turkish majority
and the station transmits on 90.0 MHz FM with its own programmes in
Bulgarian at 0900-1200 local time (currently 0700-1000 UT), the rest of
the time relaying either Horizont [BNR 1st Programme] or Radio Bulgaria
broadcasts in Turkish at the times given above. Radio Kardzhali and 
18 other BNR radio services are available on live web streams from the
organisation's multilingual website at
<http://www.bnr.bg>

Recent clips of Radio Kardzhali and Radio Bulgaria Turkish Service - the
latter complete with old-style interval signal and signature tune - can be
heard on the Interval Signals Online website at
<http://IntervalSignals.net>
(David Kernick-UK, Interval Signals Online, Nov 18, dxld)

Instead of possible satellite feed ...  Recent ideas on Foreign Office in
Berlin, are playing with an idea of offering strong medium-wave programms
from Bulgaria, Moldova or Armenia sites in order to spread a 'democratic'
Turkish-language program for Turkey. This in times during an quite
possible event internet blocking action to 22 million Kurds in Diyarbakir
Eastern Turkey area, by the Erdogan sultan stronghold.

During the Greek military dictatorship in the years 1967 to 1974 was the
'Deutsche Welle Cologne' program in Greek language, the language voice of
the Greek democratic opposition. (wb.)

CANADA   {NEWFOUNDLAND}   6159.96  CKZN St. Johns. The good news with
Vancouver (CKZU) currently off the air is that this station can now be
heard in the clear; Nov 29, heard 1035-1050 & 1129-1200 UT; local times
given, saying was the "same for most of Labrador," but I note was not the
time in St. John's; local weather; school closures; sports scores; "part
one" about the documentary "Power of the Sweatlodge"; story of a man
trying to get help for his wife, but mental health facilities in "Labrador
West" are not good; reception poor-fair. Very nice to hear them at a
decent level for a change here on the west coast!

11840, on Nov 27 at 0621 UT, RHC Spanish still on here and at S=9+10dB
level, yet no spur carriers detectable on 11830 & 11850 kHz, which ought
to be, with that fundamental signal level. Have they been eliminated, or
11840 kHz switched over to a different transmitter for this? Possible,
since fundamental now has suptorted modulation, not previously the case on
11840 kHz. At 1447 UT note that 11840 kHz is off; all my previous logs of
it during new morning transmission were during the 1300 hour, so apparent
intentional closing circa 1400 UT.

My 31 Oct logging of AIR Leh on 4760 kHz at 1548 UT (from Mauno's SDR

on Port Blair. This is a good time to log AIR Leh while the condx are good
and Port Blair is off!

MADAGASCAR   Noted also Radio Madagasikara Antananarivo with rather
poor S=4 signal around 2020 UT on Nov 25, probably stn closed at 2034 UT ?

Noted on 5011.952 kHz, but wandered speedy 10 - 20 Hertz up and down,
and settled at 2029 UT on 5012.010 kHz varying.

Often featured in DXpress:

Radio Madagasikara Antananarivo unit is
a 'present' of the German Public Broadcaster
SWR Baden-Baden (formerly SWF Suedwestfunk)
Rohrdorf Germany, formerly 7265 kHz 20 kW.

Original 100 kW {2 x 50 kW units} TX built up by Siemens Vienna branch,
Austria, delivered to SFB Berlin program on Radio Bremen relay site
- back - towards GDR audience on 6190 kHz frequency.
TX power necessity: decreased to 20 kW (consist two separate 20 kW units).

TX unit moved to SWF Rohrdorf in southern Germany after collapse of
communist GDR in the nineties,
a new Quadrant Cross Dipole antenna erected there in 1993 year ?

development assistance - foreign aid:

Approx. 2004-2005 dismanteled SWR Rohrdorf 7265 kHz installation,
the TX sent as 'foreign aid present' to Madagascar Madagasikara
Antananarivo, nominal requested 5010 kHz channel,
but always frequency varying,
wanders around in 5009 to 5013 kHz range.
(wb  df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Nov 25)

It seems to be still the same transmitter with typical pattern:
Quickly varying by som 20 or 30 Hertz up and down and slowly drifting
around between 5009 and 5013 kHz - but in a long-term perspective the
signal has significantly improved in the last few weeks. I don't think
it's just for seasonal or propagational reasons, but increased power,
better modulation or maybe another antenna.
(Thorsten Hallmann-D, dxld Nov 25)

SENEGAL   I came across this facility on GE at
14 45 37 N  17 16 25 W  in the
village of Rufisque near Dakar, Senegal.

According to
<http://www.defense.gouv.fr/ema/forces-
prepositionnees/senegal/dossier/les-elements-francais-au-senegal>

Rufisque is the location of the HF transmitter site of the French Navy
(Elements francais au Senegal), section DIRISI (direction interarmees
des reseaux d'infrastructure et des systemes d'information).

If it is the DIRISI facility, this would be the site of 6WW which is one
of the few remaining services putting Senegal on the SW bands.

Historical imagery goes back until 2002, with no significant changes
visible. No SV / photography nearby, also nothing noted here on Wikimapia.
(Eike Bierwirth-D, dxld Nov 26)

Rufisque 6WW?

Is very close to the former ORTV du Senegal sites you found earlier.

I understand that Senegal is on the Google SV list of upcoming
SV releases.
Expect to see some SV imagery from there within the next 12 months along
with Ghana & Nigeria.

TAJIKISTAN   Log of Nov 27 at 1330 to 1430 UT at remote Sri Lanka Perseus
SDR unit:

4765.800 distorted wobbled audio signal, probably wrong transmitter bcast
         from Dushanbe Yangi Yul site (noted for first time in past
         decade). Jumped at 3 peaks, also plus/minus 400 Hertz peaks seen,
         like RTTY data signal, hopping at 1404 UT on Nov 27.

4766.6 kHz distorted WHITE NOISE audio block ALSO visible. (Nov 27)

4765.1 to 4766.7 kHz distorted WOBBLING NOISE audio block ALSO visible,
also on New Delhi India remote SDR installation.

4765.069 TJK  Dushanbe Tajik Radio, Nov 30.
         Something must be technically wrong these past weeks there.
         On Nov 27-28 heard a much strong - technically distorted
         audio signal on odd fq of +68 to +69 Hertz fq oddity.
         Never observed before from this technically reliable bcast
         center. Dushanbe-TJK 7245 kHz seems even and in good audio
         condition these days. I guess only an older USSR era TX
         is in alternate use these days in 60 meterband on 4765v kHz.
         Only S=4-5 signal noted in eastern Thailand.

Some DX friends worldwide sent me their RRs in past 3-4 days, and report
about technical faulty transmissions of Dushanbe TJK, especially on 60 mb.

I guess one of their high-power modern TXs is now on repair work,

and an older USSR era alternate transmitter is NOW in use on 60 mb,
its odd frequency of +68 to 69 Hertz oddity, like a 50 kW unit ...

Signal strength today,
in South and SoEaAsia is much weaker than usual in past decades.

[later]  4766v  yes, this TX-ion seemingly is much wrong today, heard in
UTC afternoon distorted WOBBLING NOISE audio block on 4765.1 to 4766.7
kHz.

TJK 1st domestic px Yangi Yul TXion stopped, switch TX  OFF at 20.00:18 UT
Nov 27, as scheduled of Tajik Radio Dushanbe TJK on requested 4765 kHz.
(wb  df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Nov 27 / 30)

I wonder if this is also impacting Voice of Tajik on their 0200 xmsn on
7245 - I logged this from Mauno's Perseus site on Nov 30 with signal
strength noticeably weaker than I usually hear from this site. Sig lvl was
about 3 on 5-scale ... normally would be S4 or better. Bruce
(Bruce W. Churchill-CA-USA, DXplorer Dec 1)

re 4765 KHz Tajik offest.
At 0027 UT on Dec 2 only CNR2 Beijing on the 7245 kHz channel.

is from Dushanbe Yangi Yul site, but 7245 VoTJK seemingly from Orzu site
in the southern corner.
