In the interests of sharing arcane information here's the current RA hf
schedule.

Changes relate to the off-shore relays from UAE, Singapore & Palau has

AUSTRIA   18910  ORF/ORS Moosbrunn service to Australia at 0900-0935 UT is
planned.

18910 I heard the ORF / ORS emission from Moosbrunn inside today morning
at UT 0900-0930 UT on remote unit downunder in Australia.

At first I was not quite clear whether the release also has the usual long
path via Azores, Colombia and Easter Island, from behind after NZL / AUS,
as was - blissfully - at Engineer's Herbert Kuhnle work was scheduled from
Hoeflein in past 30 years til his sudden dead on christmas 2000.

Direction ITU Zones 58 to 60, azimuth 255 degrees out of Europe via
Azores, Colombia Easter Isl, southern Pacific.

Signal was a little something fluttery, I would have expected more punch.
Only about S 7 signal level. But you have to go watch out some time, which
may in the southern summer season get MUCH bettersignal.

A report by the ORF Vienna from NY or DC of the elections in the U.S.,
about President Obama and the US/China economy / stock market, the wars in
AFG, IRQ, SYR and north-eastern African clashes, but the Atlantic storm /
hurricane tornado etc. 'now go before ...'.

At the same time, on 19010 kHz the U.S. propaganda signal from Kuwait was
in Pashto language for Afghanistan, even weaker, only S=4 but
understandable content. Depends also of antenna used in Australia. 0900-
0935 UT Oct 29.

BULGARIA   Der bulgarische Rundfunk hat vier fuer den 30. September 2012
angekuendigten Senderschliessungen auf den 1. Januar 2013 verschoben.
Offenbar wurde nur Radio Sumen auf 963 kHz auch tatsaechlich abgeschaltet,
waehrend die auf selber Frequenz die beiden Horizont-Sender, von denen
einer auch das tuerkischsprachige Minderheitenprogramm uebertraegt, auf
Sendung blieben.

Vorerst weiter zu hoeren bleiben folgende Mittelwellen:
774 kHz (Varna-1    75 kW) Radio Varna
963 kHz (Dragoman-4 40 kW) Horizont
963 kHz (Kardzali-2 50 kW) Horizont + tuerkisches Minderheitenprogramm
873 kHz (Stara Zagora-2 60 kW) Radio Stara Zagora+Hristo Botev.

Seit 2010 sind grosse Teile des Mittelwellensendernetzes stillgelegt
worden. Ab 2013 sollen nach derzeitigem Stand nur noch fuenf Mittelwellen-
und ein Langwellensender in Betrieb bleiben. In Mitteleuropa zu hoeren
sind davon vor allem der Langwellensender Vakarel bei Sofia auf 261 kHz
(75 kW) sowie die Mittelwellensender Dulovo und Targoviste auf 1161 kHz
(je 10 kW), die sich oft mit einem Echoeffekt bemerkbar machen.

Powerhouse Polish Radio now on 9755 kHz from Sofia S=9+40dB, intended to
Eastern Europe. Every day new surprise from Kostinbrod Bulgaria. ID at
1836 UT.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 30)

Polskie Radio replaces Woofferton by Kostinbrod.

Cf. <http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.de/2012/10/observations_30.html>

Checking shortly after 1300 UT I could not trace any signal 15560 or
17860 kHz, as still shown at
<http://www.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=B12&broadc=PRW>

So apparently those who market the revived Kostinbrod facility have taken
away that customer from Babcock. It should be no wild guess that they
proactively approached Polskie Radio and sell the 50 kW from Kostinbrod
cheaper than Babcock did with the now lost 125 kW business from
Woofferton. Clear signs for a meanwhile predatory type of competition I'd
say.

[later]  Realized after posting this that the existing HFCC coordinations
are apparently an UT hour too early, perhaps proceeding from the
assumption that Polskie Radio would avoid changes in regard to local time
in Russia and Belarus. But that's not the case.

So another check at 1400 UT. But no, also now no trace of any carrier
15560 while 17860 kHz has something very faint which is not // ,
presumably DW to 'stans from Al-Dhabbaya.

At the same time 12095 kHz is pretty strong here. Modulation uncut at 1359
into music fill after whatever other preceeding broadcast Polskie Radio
distributes only via Hotbird and webstream anymore. At 1400 UT programme
in Russian opened, with quite bombastic on-air design. And I have no doubt
that this is indeed Kostinbrod.
(Kai Ludwig-D, dxld Oct 31)

12095 since 1351 UT Tune In a carrier is vissible from Sofia Kostinbrod at
S=9+20dB in target Minsk, Kiev, StP and Moscow. No measurement tone, pure
air..., now at 13.55:40 UT crash start into Polish Radio in Russian
opening, then News.

But underneath is still BBWS Meyerton service co-channel til 15 UT,
followed by Seychelles from 1600 UT.

Inuit language(?), popular song, talk (CBC... Canada...), 44444.
(Wagai, dswci DXW)

Also heard at 1316-1318 UT on Oct 18, better than usual, which is nice
since, this is doomed to oblivion in about 10 days. Discussion about
suicide, in English but with Inuit(?) accent, call-in number 888-896-3135,
1318 interview. It was also better than usual before 0500 UT, holding its
own against REE/CR 9630 kHz. Still heard at 1332 UT, Oct 28, with "The
Sunday Edition" on plot to overthrow Mossadeq, but very poor. Also heard
at 0224 UT, Oct 29, jazz piano. Also at 1240 UT, Oct 29 in apparent
Inuktituk, very poor signal.

CBC Northern Service still on the air on 9625 kHz as we speak, nice signal
here into NC. Since they no longer have a license are they now the world's
most powerful pirate? Now that I think of it, VOA doesn't have a license
either.
(Glenn Swiderski-NC-USA, dxld Nov 1)

Mark Coady: "It's November 1st, Hallowe'en is over, and the CBC Northern
Quebec service is STILL ON on 9625 kHz in the Cree language at 1230 UTC.
So, what gives with this? It would be nice if, after closing Sackville,
the CBC were to relocate a transmitter for the service but I doubt it.
Perhaps the Sackville employees are doing this in spite of CBC
management."

Final transmission from Sackville, Canada. Recording of the last few
minutes from Sackville:

Good reception here in Leipzig-Germany, also better than normal. PC and
Perseus ran overnight to save the record.

GUATEMALA    Radio Verdad wurde mit aussergewoehnlich fruehem Sendebeginn
0930 UT = 0330 LT Uhr guatemaltekischer Ortszeit beobachtet. Wie Dr. Edgar
Amilcar Madrid auf Anfrage mitteilte, hat man eine neue Mitarbeiterin, die
so frueh anfangen wollte. Damit sendet Radio Verdad jetzt 0330-2405 Uhr LT
Ortszeit auf 4055 kHz. Ausserdem ist die Station im Internet
<www.radioverdad.org> mit zwei Programmen praesent.

2010 brachte der kanadische Ingenieur Wayne Ralph Borthwick die Station,
die seit einem Blitzschlag im September 2008 ausser Betrieb war, wieder
auf Sendung. Neben der Reparatur des Senders arbeitete er auch an einer
neuen Antennenanlage, so dass die Station nun viel effektiver arbeitet. Da
Edgar Amilcar Madrid die Kurzwelle liebt, freut er sich ueber
internationale Empfangsberichte. Aktuell arbeitet der Stationsdirektor an
der Verlaengerung des Senderechts.

KOREA  D.P.R.  NOTICE ON  -  We had WISPERING yesterday night on A-DX
newsgroup of Christoph Ratzer. Only half of the INTERNATIONAL txs of
VoKorea Pyongyang Kujang DIDN'T heard - were OFF LATELY. Today 14 UT
checked: today ONLY 1400-1450 UT French 7570 11710 kHz and Korean 6185 and
9850 kHz.

Installation of the Korean service new TX equipment from China took 10
months from May 2011 til March 2012, after training of engineers in China
firm branch.

Maybe Koreans bought some more new TXs again in China, and are at present
under construction work at the station Kujang for the international
service?

hier meist nicht, ist 90 Grad abweisender Azimuth ...

Vielleicht haben sie jetzt auch neue Sender fuer den internationalen
Dienst eingekauft. Seit Mai 2011 waren die Ingenieure ja mit dem
koreanischen Programm-Schaetzchen aus China beschaeftigt. Letztere spielen
seit Maerz 2012 in Kanggye sehr gut audio- und stabil frequenzmaessig !
Nur Kujang hat noch die schweizerischen Gebrauchtsender on air.

Test procedure of a 1026 Hertz test tone noted at 0620-0635 UT on both
7260 and 7295 kHz, S=9+45 powerhouse. Both channels normaly used by
VoRussia via Grigoriopol Maiac site at nighttime 23-03 and 23-04 UT
towards Americas.

What happens at Friday UTC/Saturday EET time at 2300-0000 - only silent
carrier?

What happens at Saturday UTC/Sunday EET time at 2300-0000 - only silent
carrier? Usually these RUS/CIS tx need 12 to 10 minutes warming up start
procedure...
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 30)

On Fri/Sat the 7290 tx does not come on the air until just before 2300 for
Voice of Russia (maybe 2250 with carrier/tones).

Radio PMR broadcasts from 2000-0100 local PMR time Monday to Friday by
their local clock, but the 0000-0100 portion becomes Thursday to Sunday by
UTC.

The same pattern has been observed for some years, but every season there
is confusion about this !
(Dave Kenny-UK, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 30)

Thanks Dave Kenny, that seems likely a WARMING UP HOUR EVEN ON SUNDAYS,
for the main purpose of five hours VoRussia sce 7290 kHz on 2300 til 0400
UT hours.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 30)

Radio PMR B12 (++). Speaking of confusion If local midnight is at 2200 UT:

What I have observed from numerous monitoring reports in past seasons is
that they start the week's broadcasts at 2200 UT Sunday, and end them at
2200 UT Friday. (If on UT+2 hrs).

So on Sundays there are no broadcasts before 2200 and on Fridays no
broadcasts after 2200, while Mon-Thu they are on for the entire span
continuously.

(Or if on UT+3hrs, change both to 2100 UT local midnight. Thus the 21-23
portion is Sun-Thu (not Thu-Sun) and the 18-21 portion M-F both in terms
of UT and locally.)

This does not really affect the VOR relays on the same frequency, which
start after PMR is finished, on the days it is really on the air.

As to which day's programs are heard in the incomplete transmissions, it
hardly matters as they are repetitious propaganda. Does anyone ever hear
any timely news?

I agree it's stupid, but it is what it is.

You will see in WRTH 2012 page 464 that the 2200-2230 and 2230-2300 UT
broadcasts for B-11 are shown as Sun-Thu while the earlier ones are M-F,
as I have been describing.

In other words, they start their broadcast week just as Monday starts
local time, even tho there is only one hour of the cycle left to transmit.
And end the week just as Friday is ending local time, dispensing with the
last hour on that day.

This is complicated by what "local PMR time" really is, whether they go
with Russia's DST changes (and whether or not to observe double DST), or
go with Ukraine and the rest of Moldova.

Timeanddate.com currently shows Moldova on UT+2hrs and Moscow still on
UT+4hrs.

I see that the schedule page originally linked at the bottom of these
replies, does imply that there are continuous 5-hour broadcasts all five
weekdays, all in EET without explaining its correct and current relation
to UT. But we are assuming it's +2 hours.

Apparently UT+2 is correct, as at 2214 UT Monday I am hearing English on
7290, which corresponds to the 0000 EET listing with the wrong summer
frequency 9665 kHz.

Possibly they have now done away with the anomalies I have been
describing, so monitor what really happen on 7290, Friday and Sunday
before and after 2200 UT.

RUSSIA   Taking a look at the B-12 VOR schedule which J-M Aubier pointed
to
<http://english.ruvr.ru/engradio/>

I am surprised to see 15 and 17 MHz frequencies in the evening to North
America higher than in the summer, and must be hitting us from EaAsia, not
Europe. Will they work? They sure do tonight, Oct 30 at 0237 UT check with
'In Between' conversation: 17665 and 15630 kHz are very good, in fact the
SSOBs!

And 17690 is there but considerably weaker. What are the HFCC shows
15630 0200-0600 1,2,6 P.K  250 67 0 288
17665 0200-0400 1,2,6 P.K  250 61 0 288
17690 0200-0400 1,2,6 VLD  500 50 0 218

Pet/Kam always does better here than Vladivostok for some reason,
considerably further away, despite twice the power {and much bigger
antennas in 8 rows}.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld Oct 30)

15630 kHz at 0520 UT Oct 30 from P-K works well into Europe. S=8 echo like
two way signal getting from different paths ... around the world.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 30)

5940 in B-11 and seasons before was VoRUS in Portuguese language, now in
B-12 VoRUS English service 21-22 UT on powerhouse Samara 250 kW, S=9+35dB
here in Germany.

6160  Radio Rossii via Arkhangelsk-Murmansk in Russian at 0412 UT. S=9+5dB

SWITZERLAND/RUSSIA   Voice of Russia abandons 558 kHz soon.

Voice of Russia will apparently cancel its use of 558 kHz in Switzerland
after less than two years.
<http://german.ruvr.ru/frequenzen/>
shows for this frequency now an end date of 31 Dec 2012, mentioned in on-
air announcements as well.

These transmissions started on 1 April 2011 after Voice of Russia was the
only broadcasting organization interested in mediumwave frequencies in
Switzerland at all. They originate with a power of 200 kW from the Cima di
Dentro facility, abandoned by SRG in 2008.

<http://www.giangrandi.ch/electronics/broadcast/ceneri.html>

Note how the equipment is installed in an underground shelter here as
well, like it was the case at Sarnen and Lenk, too. Wonder if it is still
the transmitter inaugurated in 1979, guess it is indeed. Note also the aux
antenna, which I already saw confused for a dipole for 1566 kHz, which it
not is. (Hammock-type antennas are often confused for dipoles.)

TAJIKISTAN   4950.067  Voice of Russia gone from 4975 kHz.

Checking on 4975 kHz today (Oct 29) I noticed Voice of Russia in English
(TX Dushanbe-Yangiyul) is no more on that frequency. VoR website says the
new frequency is 4780 kHz, and indeed at 1608 UT I can hear the same
buzzing I used to hear on 4975 (probably an old TX malfunction) but only a
faint trace of modulation.
(Tudor Vedeanu-ROU, dxld Oct 29)

Voice of Russia gone from 4975 kHz.
But checking last night 1700 UT and later observe VOR English on 4950 kHz,
and nothing on 4975 kHz. I suppose this is Dushanbe ex 4975? Nothing for
4950 kHz in HFCC. Yes, HFCC lists 4780 but only DJI heard there.

Noisy signal on 7243 to 7257 kHz range from Asia?

Das hoert sich nach einem 14 kHz breiten UTE Signal an, beginnt bei 7243
und endet bei 7257 kHz. Stort jetzt ab 1900 UT auch die CRI
Tuerkischsendung aus Kunming.

Auch nach oben hin gibt es solch ein seitenbandiges Kratzsignal, wird nur
durch die 7255 Aussendung CRI Shijiazhuang in Russisch bis 1857 UT
ueberdeckt, ist aber im Browser auch sichtbar.

Empfang heute Abend Oct 30 im Perseus Netz:
Das wird in den diversen remote SDR Geraeten in Mitteleuropa,
Griechenland, Ukraine, in Maunos rx in Ost-Finnland, sowie in 4 Geraeten -
waehrend der Dunkelheit zwischen Irland und Japan - auch in Japan gehoert.

Ursachen:
14 MHz sind auch OTHR Signale breit, die Jungs in Asien entwickeln noch ?
Funkamateure in Hong Kong, Japan bis nach AUS/NZL berichten oft von
solchen Signalen in den schmalen Afu-Baendern.

Koennte ein spuriouses Seitensignal der Jammer aus dem Bereich 6.2 bis 7
MHz sein.

     Germany, but hit occasionaly by UTE STANAG signal next door
     on 10345 kHz.
11725 NZLInternat S=9+10dB via long path Pacific, Colombia, Azores into
      Germany, S=9+10dB
11740 GUF NHK Radio Japan via Montsinery have got the wrong feed line the
      first day in B-12.
      Instead of scheduled of En service heard the Spanish sce at S=9+15db
      level, // Cypress Creek Furman-SC relay 6195 kHz proper signal on
      S=9+25 dB level.
      NHK English heard instaed at 0509 UT via 9770ISS and 17660UAE loud
      and clear.

19-20 UT 9835 kHz. Bad mixture, both Wertachtal and Issoudun at 19-20 UT.
Issoudun in Russian towards RUS/CIS states, but Brother Stair or something
like US religious mission roarer towards NE/ME/NoEaAF and East Africa
underneath. BOTH 500 kW.

B-12 logs on very first day.

At 0300: BBCWS 6140 Meyerton poor, 7255 Ascension fair to poor with
slopover from VOR 5 kHz down. 9410 Cyprus very poor, 5940 Cyrpus
unlistenable. However 7435 Ascension actually quite good, but some other
station underneath, not identified.

Also at 0300: On 5960 TWO transmitters with NHK in Japanese, equally
decent strength, audios about a second apart. Old Sackville A-12 and new
Montsinery B-12 on at the same time? I suppose this will clear up in 24
hours. Also NHK Radio Japan interval signal looping endlessly on 11935,
very poor signal, last gasp from Bonaire on wrong feed?

After 0400: BBCWS 7255 Ascension slightly better than an hour ago, with
VOR gone from 7250. 12015 Meyerton quite good, but 12035 Cyprus and 12095
Seychelles unheard.

NHK on 5960 around 0425, now just one signal, audio processing sounds like
Sackville; presumably Montsinery closed at 0400.

Nothing heard on 6195 at 0420 check, so appears NHK Spanish via Bonaire
now gone.
