GERMANY   6190  DLF Berlin Britz shortwave closure.
Service on shortwave 15 August 1951 til 26 April 2012.

Wolfy I see mentions in your latest BCDX mentions of 6190 DLF gone
forever. Thanks for all the references & material.

So the Berlin-Britz SW site has finally now gone dark, so to speak. Can
either of you kindly tell me the date of the final SW transmission? It's
not clear exactly when this happened.

Also thee appears several references to start date of transmissions
from the above site. I now have three.

1. 1949
2. April 1951, and
3. August 1951
Any enlightenment would be much appreciated.

"Weiss jemand ob der DLF Sender in Berlin Britz auf 6190 kHz abgeschaltet
wurde? Auf alle Faelle laeuft da nix mehr seit gestern {April 27, 2012}

D.h. am 27.04.2012 war schon off air, koennte also 26.04.2012 letzter
Sendetag gewesen sein.

Mein letzter Log von 6190 DLF war hier am 21.04.2012 im Rahmen eines

6005 / 6190 former RIAS Berlin, now DLF Berlin Britz 6190 kHz closure.

RIAS Berlin program SHORTWAVE outlets started ALREADY at VOA Munich
Ismaning site on 6080 kHz, used an rather 75 kW old CCR/CFT/Tesla Prague
TX unit. TX built up by German Reichspost at Ismaning late in WWII in
1944. On air Juli 1948 to April 1949.

RIAS Berlin stronger MW unit on 989 kHz started on July 20, 1949. This
100 kW Telefunken MW sender moved to German Technical Museum in 1993.
Communist Germany GDR started radio JAMMING against RIAS Berlin mediumwave
broadcasts in 1950.

Older RIAS Berlin Telefunken SW unit and steep angle antenna of 20 kW (at
present 17 kW on 6190 kHz), started service on 6005 kHz to communist
Germany GDR target on 15 August 1951, during nighttime.

At daytime GDR target served by old CCR/CFT/Tesla Prague TX unit by 75 kW
at VOA/RIAS TX site at Munich Ismaning also on 6005 kHz, later from the
70ties by 75/100 kW as noted at sightseeing tour to Ismaning in 1999, now
all HARDWARE dismanteled and scrapped.

After closure of LW Munich Erching 173 kHz, RIAS SW started again on
Febr 1, 1964, 20kW nighttime from 0500 hrs LT - til 0305 hrs LT from
Berlin Britz, 100kW daytime from Munich Ismaning, from 1975 acting
vice versa.

Since this solution was not very satisfied, a new 100 kW Telefunken tx
unit started regularly 24hrs sce at Berlin Britz on new non-directional
HQ Quadrant antenna, on Sept 1, 1983.

The 17-20kW old SW unit of 1951 kept as reserve unit, used on the older
folded HORIZONTAL dipole with favorite azimuth to North-East and South-
West direction.

From Febr 2, 1999 older 17 kW SW unit went in regular service again used
for DeutschlandFunk Berlin Britz on SW 6190 kHz, rather exact 10 Hertz low
side.

My very last Britz morning log
6189.990  DLF Berlin Britz, wie ueblich gutes S=9+35 dB mindestens Signal
          im Suedwesten. Gleiche Staerke wie WER 6095 kHz.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews April 8, 2012)

6190 Deutschlandradio.
Concerning the now dead shortwave operations at Berlin-Britz it should be
remembered that already for years they had been maintained as a mere
labour of love, hidden in the "maintenance mediumwave" budget because no
funds had been provided and shortwave was no official distribution
platform anymore. So now after the {telefunken} S4001 also the 1950
vintage transmitter could no longer be repaired under the circumstances,
and possible enquiries to Deutschlandradio could only have put further
nails into the coffin.

The outcome was predictable anyway, because the whole Berlin-Britz site is
meanwhile slated for closure. 990/855 kHz will simply go away while
89.6 MHz will move to the TV tower, it has already been checked that this
is feasible (filter configurations etc.).

The other Deutschlandradio AM transmitters except 1422 kHz are owned and
operated by Media Broadcast. Binding transmission contracts are in place
until 2016 after the facilities have been made DRM-capable with
substantial expenses, involving not only the installation of new solid-
state transmitters (Transradio TRAM series) but also modifications of the
antennas to ensure the required bandwith. This also applies to 1422 kHz,
owned and operated by Saarlaendischer Rundfunk which, if certain gossip
can be trusted, is a pretty expensive transmitter operator (on FM also for
various other broadcasters).

References to "the longwave transmitter" may refer in particular to
177 kHz, carrying Deutschlandradio Kultur when no specials and sea weather
forecasts are on air. Ironically it best serves the area where
Deutschlandradio Kultur has full FM coverage from one of the old GDR radio
networks because it is the product of a merger of Deutschlandsender (East
Berlin) and RIAS (West Berlin). Still in these very areas it has few
listeners, with market shares in some regions being at the fringe of being
detectable at all, specified as 0.1 percent.

This appears to be the result of Deutschlandradio Kultur broadcasting from
an ivory tower, to some degree having lost contact to the world outside
urban, hip Berlin. Now programming changes are looming at both
Deutschlandradio Kultur and Deutschlandfunk, of which so far the only
known detail is that Deutschlandfunk will at night replace its music
programmes (the ones mentioned in numerous 6190 kHz loggings from North
America) with unspecified talk content. I do not expect much good, and I
think it is the very ivory tower problem that leads to programming changes
almost always being a deterioration.

NETHERLANDS   Dutch International broadcaster RNW Wereldomroep 65 years in

In Dutch but worth watching...
(Horacio Nigro-URG, dxld May 30)

NETHERLANDS   Sad salutations from Sactown once again, Glenn.
Just heard on Radio Netherlands' English ITunes stream that Radio
Netherlands will end their English web streams, satellite, & shortwave
services June 29.

Due to funding cutbacks. What an ignoble end to what had been a crown
jewel amongst international broadcasters! Heard too late about RNW's Dutch
service termination, but doubt their Bonaire 13 meter band transmissions
would have been heard at QTH due to local digital RFI.

Have had to rely on ITunes feed since RNW abandoned shortwave
transmissions [except in Spanish] from Bonaire. Stereo feed is pristine.
But would love to hear just one more static plagued transmission from
Lopik or Flevo. Or even a back scatter Africa feed from Madagascar or
Bonaire.

BTW, RNW still has active, though silent, Dutch ITunes feed. Am extremely
saddened by RNW's passing! Long live Radio Nederland Wereldomroep!

<http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A12&broadc=RNW>

now reveals that RNW Indonesian will cease on June 29, too, with an
extended farewell transmission for which additional frequencies will be
used, via Trincomalee 15565 kHz 1000-1057 UT and 15300 1000-1155, via
Talata Volonondry 17840 and 21485 both 1000-1257.

For English and Spanish HFCC still shows Oct 28 as end date, but now it
appears to be pretty sure that on June 29 all foreign language radio at
RNW, at least via own program distribution (i.e. content for
rebroadcasters could still be produced), will cease like Dutch before.

One small question remains here: For one Dutch frequency in the HFCC data
the end date has not been corrected to May 12, 6020 Mon-Fri 0930-1000 via
Bonaire. It should be checked if perhaps it is really still on air, since
Dutch to the Carribean was an exception and, in the original plans as
reported last year, to be continued under a new arrangement, perhaps at
NPO. Thus it is possible that this 6020 entry is not a mistake. If so it
could become the only remaining RNW transmission as of June 30, of course
for not much longer.

If not RNW will apparently be gone from shortwave altogether by this date.
(However, this does not apply to the Free Press Unlimited broadcasts which
are already sponsored by the foreign office and produced in the RNW
studios as well.)

Another aspect is Radio Vatican which is about to loose its airtime
exchange arrangements with both RNW and RCI within the next few weeks.
What will become of their shortwave distribution in the western hemisphere
and in Africa?

Will there be replacements, which could only be slots paid in cash, or
only transmissions from their own SMG facilities remain?

finally heard the Pescador Preacher on 8989USB mode May 6 from tune in at

of Santiago. At 0013 UT into some two-way communications with his flock
but by 0016 UT or so, not much more traffic. About 0024 UT the preacher
seemingly facilitated a telephone link up between one of the fisherman and
someone ashore. This seemingly is a Nicaraguan evangelical preacher whose
"flock" is fishermen. It would be great to know the whole story about this
one. Signal was fair to good. Maybe a little iffy as to shortwave
broadcast status, though an argument might be made that it could be so
considered, rather than a utility.

USA   A Voice of America site once scheduled for closure was rededicated
May 2 in a ceremony featuring the son of broadcasting pioneer Edward R.
Murrow. Voice of America Site B, located 15 miles east of Greenville was
named for the legendary broadcaster when it opened in 1963. Murrow's name
was removed from the building as part of security measures taken after the
September 11 terrorist attacks. Murrow's name was returned during a 10
a.m. ceremony held at the site, 3919 VOA Site B Road. The event was open
to the public, and tours of the facility were available after the
ceremony. The event featured Murrow's son, Casey; Richard M. Lobo,
director of the International Broadcasting Bureau; Victor Ashe, member of
the Broadcasting Board of Governors; and Congressman Walter B. Jones Jr.
It was held in advance of World Press Freedom Day on May 4.

The Broadcasting Board of Governors announced in February 2010 it wanted
to close VOA Site B so it could save about $3.1 million annually and focus
on other broadcasting technologies. Jones, together with two other North
Carolina Congressmen worked to stop the closure. The closure never came
because Congress had difficulties finalizing its 2010-11 budget and
funding was included in continuation budgets. The broadcasting board
notified Jones in January 2011 that the administration wouldn't pursue the
site's closure.

By that time Victor Ashe, former mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee., and
former ambassador to Poland, joined the board and toured the VOA Site B
facility. Ashe said he was impressed by the facility's staff members and
their dedication to the organization's mission. "We believe free and
honest information is a prelude and a foundation of a democratic society,"
he said. Like other proponents of the site Ashe said it's important to
keep VOA Site B operating as it's the only short-wave VOA facility
operating under U.S. jurisdiction. Other short-wave locations can be shut
down at the insistence of its host nation. Other methods of broadcasting,
FM/MW relays, television, the Internet and social media, can be cut off or
blocked.

USA   Enders Wimbush, Author Of Plan To Make VOA Mandarin
Internet-ONLY, RESIGNS From BBG.

"S. Enders Wimbush has stepped down from the Broadcasting Board of
Governors. 'We extend our deepest thanks to Enders Wimbush for all he has
done, not only during nearly two years with the Board, but through many
years - including his leadership at RFE/RL during the collapse of
communism and the demise of the Soviet Union,' BBG Presiding Governor
Michael Lynton said today.

'Enders has brought quality, erudition and distinction to the mission of
U.S. nternational media; what's more, he put his heart and soul into it.
We will miss Enders' contributions and company at our meetings, but will
count on his continued involvement with our work.'

From 1987-93, Wimbush served as Director of Radio Liberty in Munich,
Germany. Wimbush recently became the Senior Director for Foreign Policy
and Civil Society at the German Marshall Fund of the United States."

BBG Watch, 23 May 2012: "Wimbush argued that moving resources from VOA
broadcasts, which he claimed had almost no audience on shortwave radio in
China, to develop stronger Internet presence, made good strategic sense.
... As a chairman of the [BBG's] Strategy and Budget Committee, S. Enders
Wimbush also initially supported ending VOA radio broadcasts to Tibet and
leaving only Radio Free Asia Tibetan shortwave radio transmissions and VOA
TV Tibetan broadcasts - which cannot be viewed easily in Tibet due to
restrictions on private satellite dishes.

He later reversed his stand by voting with other BBG members last month to
restore funding for VOA Tibetan radio, the VOA Cantonese Service, and some
Radio Free Asia radio transmissions." See previous post about same
subject.

New Fiji clandestine June 4 at 0830 UT.
Loud and clear here in Wisconsin with mentions of Fiji Freedom and
Democracy Movement otherwise all in Fijian so far/ Mention of Domo I Viti,
and also Soqospqp Duadua ni Lewenivanua, which is better know as SDL, a
major political party. Into recorded speech segments by presumed Laisania
Qarasa. leader of the SDL. Punctuated periodically by ringing bells and
anncr comments.
(Don Jensen-WI-USA, DXplorer June 4)

New Fiji clandestine June 4 at 0830 UT on 11565 kHz.
I monitored the full broadcast which was entirely in the Fijian language.
Frequent mentions of deposed Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase and the
current PM military leader Commodore Bainimarama, as well as the current
Constitutional Commission.

Excellent reception here in New Zealand from opening at 0831 UT until
abruptly cut around 0859 UT when I'd hoped there might be a contact given.
But have traced the organisation website at
<http://sites.google.com/site/fijidemocracyfreedommovement/>
which is promoting the shortwave broadcast of "FDFM Radio in its first
ever direct broadcast from Australia".
(Bryan Clark, Mangawhai NZL, dxld June 4)

FIJI [non]  As first reported exclusively on WoR and dxld:

HOT NEWS: A station for Fiji named Domo I Viti should start on 4 June at
0830-0900 UT on 11565 kHz via WRN from Palau. Not sure what its agenda is,
clandestine or at least political? Seems there are at least two
programs/stations by same name, in Auckland and Sydney by expatriates.
Related to either of them, originating where? E.g.:
<http://www.aucklandfiji.org.nz/community_features_view.asp?newsid=408>
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, Wor dxld May 9)

WRN confirms that this new clandestine starts June 4 at 0830-0900 UT on
11565 via PALAU site, and will be weekly on Mondays only. It's sponsored
by the Fiji Freedom and Democracy Movement, based in Adelaide, South
Australia.

If anyone can hear it, please note how much, if any, is in English, any
contact info, and if possible record an ID. I haven't found any Adelaide
office, altho searching on ABC News stories gets some hits which aren't
very productive.

Note that HFCC has WHRI rather than T8WH registered on 11565 at 08-09 UT.
WHR schedules show Angel 4, the most likely transmitter, on 17650 at that
time, and Angel 3 on 9930. 11565 was probably just a place-holder in HFCC.
Searching WHR program schedules is fruitless.

Re: New Fiji clandestine June 4 at 0830 UT.
The new station was well heard in Japan at 0830-0900 UT on 11565 kHz on
June 4. The programs were all in Fijian. IDs as "Domo I Viti" were
mentioned at the opening and the closing.
The URL of "Fiji Freedom and Democracy Movement
"was found at <http://sites.google.com/site/fijidemocracyfreedommovement/>

Mailing Address: 9 Florence Terrace, Rosewater, ADELAIDE 5014, Australia
E-mail: <fijidemocracy @ hotmail.com>  Telephone: +61488046249

This seems to be the clandestine station to Fuji, where China supported
military regime dominates.
(Takahito Akabayashi-JPN, dxld June 4)

Re: Fijian Clandestine - 11565 kHz.
Broadcast began just past 0830 UT on 11565 kHz with opening announcements
in presumed Fijian by man announcer mentioning "Domo I Viti" and "Fijian
Democracy"

Broadcast consited of talks interspersed by brief musical interludes,
followed by a song at 0855 UT which may have some significance to their
movement, then closing announcements by man at 0859 UT also mentioning
"Domo I Viti", pulled plug while man was still speaking at 0900 UT.

Seemingly via Cypress Creek which opened in English at 0800 UT.
(Steve Lare-MI-USA, dxld June 4)

FIJI [non]. 11565, June 4 at 0829 UT, I am alarmed to wake up and start
the tape on pre-tuned frequency for much-anticipated new clandestine, Domo
I Viti, which per WRN Broadcast would start today, Mondays only at
0830-0900 UT via Palau.

Amazingly strong signal to be Palau, immediately raising doubts about the
site.

Surely it's really WHRI in South Carolina, which after all is the station
registered in HFCC at this time, not WHR's T8WH.

First hearing closing of gospel huxter in English, Voice of Praise, from
Clinton TN, then PSA for WorldVision.org vis AIDS in Africa. 0830 tone
test, pause, and then Domo I Viti starts by 0831 UT.

Nothing is in English except several references to Fiji Freedom &
Democracy Movement, Australia. Presumably all Fijian, certainly nothing in
Hindi or Tamil! Opening has talk over music until 0834 then just talk,
0836 bringing in someone on phone; 0839 host talks with music; 0842
mentions FF & DM again; 0855 "South Seas" sounding song. Tape ran out at
0859 but the click woke me up so heard 11565 cut off the air at 0900 sharp
while the Fijian was still talking. It did start a minute late, after all.

Now, about the site: I researched all the antenna azimuths registered for
WHRI, and found one of them is 245 degrees, which on another transmission
is slewed +15 260, which happens to be the exact direxion of Suva from
Cypress Creek; and 245 was already the registered azimuth from WHRI at
08-09 on 11565, so that works out just right. WHRI is more than twice as
far from Suva, as Palau is, 7500 vs 3500 miles, but I expect this 250 kW
transmission is just as effective as 100 kW would have been from Palau.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld June 4)

Thanks to you Glenn, I was able to listen to the new Domo I Viti broadcast
from Palau on 11565 kHz. Reception was very noisy at first, but improved
later on. I could listen all the halfhour to telephone conversations and
interviews, mixed with short interval music. The identification ending the
programme was in the clear. I found a contact address, which is
<fijidemocracy @ hotmail.com>  and I hope they will confirm my reception.
