but only just about audible and soon lost. Russian scheduled here to
1800 UT badly mixing with co-channel BBC &Xinjiang PBS. Cannot remember
ever hearing them as low as 6 MHz.

ANTARCTIC  [Argentine]  LRA36 ha retornado al aire hoy, segun comentario
en mi blog.

15476.2  at 1258 UT Nov 15. "En LR36 Radio Arcangel San Gabriel es tiempo
de música ... Ident son las 1300 UT. Música folclorica"  35443.
(Hugo López, Santiago-CHL  CE3BBC, lista ConDig / DXplorer Nov 15)

A rather strange way to learn that LRA36 has resumed broadcasts today has
just happened:

Mirta, co-announcer of R Arcangel San Gabriel, during the 2012 Antarctic
Campaign has just commented in a post of my blog "La Galena del Sur"
featuring the station on Aug. 2012, that they are on the air from today

This is the message posted as a comment that I am roughly translating from

"My name is Mirta and I share the studio, during this year 2012 at Base
Esperanza station, with two more partners and the technical operator and
we are very excited because today we returned to convey to everyone after
the repair of equipment. We are proud to share this news with everyone!"

Original text in Spanish:
LRA36 ha retornado al aire hoy, segun comentario en mi blog.

ExtraNa manera de enterarme que LRA36 ha reiniciado sus trasmisiones en el
día de hoy.

Mirta, co-locutora de R Arcángel San Gabriel, durante la CampaNa antártica
2012 ha dejado un comentario en la publicación que hice oportunamente
sobre la emisora, en mi blog "La Galena del Sur".

Asi comenta:
"Mi nombre es Mirta y durante este año 2012 comparto el estudio de la
emisora en Base Esperanza junto a 2 compañeras más y el operador técnico y
estamos muy emocionados por que hoy volvimos a transmitir para todo el
mundo luego de la reparacion de los equipos. Es un orgullo poder compartir
esta noticia con todos!!!"

ARGENTINA   13363.6*  R. Rivad[av]ia (pres), estacao das F. A. Argentinas,
B. Aires, 2220-2242 UT, relatos e infos. futebolisticas; sinal em BLI;
35433. Tenho visto esta ser relatada em ~363.5, mas o facto e que, sem
possibilidade de fazer "batimento de freq.", por ser em BLU, a freq. em o
audio e melhor, mais natural, e em ~363.6, nao ~363.5.
(Carlos Goncalves-POR, dxld Nov 4)

13363.5-LSB  Sunday Nov 4, excited talk in Spanish, so the LTA army feeder
(to Antarctica?) is on again, as probability is highest on weekends. Not
play-by-play game, however. 2317 UT a long adstring mentioning such things
as Cataratas de Iguazu, Buenos Aires and Monte Grande addresses, and most
of them cite 0-800 phone numbers which I assume are the Argentine
equivalent of toll-free. Those and websites in .ar (pronounced as one
syllable), addresses are spewed so fast that I don't see how even native
speakers can retain or copy them but hey, gotta make the most of a 30-
second spot. One of them even has an even worse compressed-speech tag.

2322 UT mentions "Super-Monumental" is that an ID in passing, or the name
of a team? El Monumental is the name of the major futbol stadium in Buenos
Aires. Then resumes talking about some game involving a pelota (so it's
not ice hockey), replete with phony enthusiasm, also mentions Rioja, but
still no play-by-play. Never caught originating station ID, could be
Rivadavia or Continental, or ??? Signal sufficient in LSB mode, but *much*
weaker than 15345 kHz, q.v. At 0016 UT on Nov 5 recheck, still audible now
mentioning goals.

13363.5  LSB, unidentified Argentine Feeder, at 2310-2355 UT on Nov 4,
Spanish talk. Promos. Talk about futbol. Fair.
(Brian Alexander-PA-USA, dxld Nov 5)

Right now I'm listening to 13364 LSB, and they're broadcasting Metro 95.1
MHz, well-known FM station from Buenos Aires. At 0154 UT annmt by YL: "Fin
espacio publicitario", followed by canned OM anns and then into English
rap music at 0156 UT. Terrible, noisy quality.

ARMENIA  [to Myanmar]  7510 NF, Democratic Voice of Burma, at 2337-0030*
UT on Nov 4-5, New Frequency. ex-11595 kHz summer frequency. Tune-in to
Burmese talk. Many mentions of Myanmar. Short breaks of lite instrumental
music and some short breaks of local Burmese music. Good.

AUSTRALIA   19000  Nov 6 at 0128 UT, RAustralia VG with tail of an
interview with an Indian academic asserting that altho no longer
government-owned, All India Radio is not trusted by the people, who
consider it still a government mouthpiece, run by ex-bureaucrats; while
they do trust the Parliament Channel, which is funded directly from
parliament. Hmm, isn't that government too?

CANADA   6160.84  CKZN, St. Johns, NF - Heard this station yesterday
evening at 2220 UT with better than average signals. Tune in to feature on
the expected increase in heating costs this winter in Eastern Canada. Into
several program promos including one with a contest to win a trip to visit
the Hadrain Collider in Switzerland. I had not heard this in at least the

better than anything I had heard from them in quite awhile.

RUSSIA   Radio "Mayak" gone from a rural road and air soon.

RTR decided to stop with January 1, 2013 broadcast on "Mayak / Lighthouse"
program in the long and medium waves, causing radio silent outside cities.

After January 1, 2013 of the "Lighthouse" will be broadcast only in FM and
These FM frequencies used for broadcasting in the cities because of the
small radius of the transmitter.

Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (RTR) last week
sent a letter to the state company RTRS notice of termination of funding
for services RTRS broadcasting radio "Mayak" on long (LW) and medium (SW)
waves across Russia. This "News" said a source close to the RTR. In
addition, since the beginning of the new year is significantly reduced and
foreign radio "Voice of Russia", and some of the country areas will stop
by broadcasting altogether.

Transmission is in LW and SW heard almost the entire populated area of
??the country, including remote and rural areas, as well as roads outside
built-up areas. Therefore, termination of broadcasting "Mayak" in these
bands will make it inaudible in rural, suburban areas and on the roads.

According to the source, "Izvestia", the cessation of broadcasts of
"Mayak" in the LW and MW due to economic factors:

RTR profitable to spend money on it because of the virtual absence of
broadcasting in non-urban air advertising revenue of the company. With the
departure of "Mayak" from LW and MW in most parts of Russia outside the
city the population will become available for the first in the USSR
laundry information and music radio, operating since 1964. In the
"provincial" air, so there will be only "Radio Rossii".

The decrease in broadcasting on January 1, take and Radio "Voice of
Russia", working in foreign countries. Deputy chair Alexander Shirokov Nov
8th informed the RTRS letter, the content of which acquainted "Izvestia".
Of the letter that reduced broadcasting company in all frequency bands
with transmitters located in Russia.

In particular, short wave (SW), total broadcasting reduced to about 26
hours a day compared to 50 hours in 2012. Also, in the letter of
broadcasting is defined only for the 1st quarter of 2013, whereas usually
the "Voice of Russia" RTRS agrees with the scope of services for the
broadcasting of their programs for at least six months, or even a year.

The decline in broadcasting "Voice of Russia" corresponds to a reduction
of financing services company RTRS. The notification "Voice of Russia"
states that it plans to submit in 2013 to pay for their broadcasts radio
center RTRS from Russia no more than 220 million rubles, compared to about
550 million rubles in 2012.

At the same time, according to informed sources in the industry, the
"Voice of Russia" in the coming year and will refuse to lease three of the
four foreign transmitters, which were conducted with the broadcasting
company. As a result of these factors, some of the country's "Voice of
Russia" does no longer broadcast. Among them, for example, Serbia,
Croatia, Spain, Portugal, Iran, Afghanistan, as well as Ukraine and

Official representative of the RTRS Igor Igor Stepanov confirmed a
downward trend in recent years of broadcasting "Voice of Russia". As for
the care of "Mayak" with LW and MW bands, at the moment he does not know
about the official notification to this effect.

Source "News" in the "Mayak" confirms plans to stop broadcasting on long
and medium waves and maintain the existing network broadcasting in FM and

IT specialists are concerned about the fate of the powerful broadcasting
due to the reduction of its use for an inclusive broadcasting in Russia
and other countries, because the public broadcasting station "Radio
Russia", "Mayak" and "Voice of Russia" today provide the main load of this
type of broadcast.

The corresponding reduction in pay for the powerful Russian broadcasting,
according to experts, is threatening to collapse. According to them, the
situation became critical after this June, the Russian government has
decided to stop funding the modernization of powerful broadcasting. Before
that, it was planned to allocate from the state budget 13.7 billion rubles
for the installation of new equipment and replacement of the existing,
worn which is 80-100%.

Chairman of the consortium, "Digital Broadcasting Technology Platform"
(CTPD) Andrew Bryksenkov believes that reducing the revenues from
broadcasting "Mayak" and "Voice of Russia" can lead to the complete
closure of some centers transmitting RTRS. Among these centers in St.
Petersburg, Krasnodar, Khabarovsk, Kamchatka and in the suburbs.

In turn, the disabling of a powerful radio broadcasting centers can lead
to negative consequences, including a reduction in the reliability of
systems alerting the public in emergency situations, and reduced levels of
security and defense. This is especially evident from the fact that now in
Russia there are only 65 transmitters, providing a powerful internal
national radio, against 624 in China and 637 in the United States - said
the expert.

Media specialists believe that the failure of "Mayak" from broadcasting on
long and medium waves may be associated with cost optimization.

This step is quite logical, because the "Lighthouse" thus concentrates its
listeners on shortwave. And those students who live in remote parts of the
country, can listen to "lighthouse" on the wired radio, which has not been
canceled - the president said Media Holding Alexander Shkolnik.

Anyway, people in rural and remote areas will have to forget the call sign
of "Mayak", since wire radio in these places, or never had, or has been
curtailed in recent years. Today, networks wired radio preserved mainly in
the big cities - Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, etc. In most regions
of Russia wire radio active retirement. For example, it turned out,
"News", outside Novosibirsk in wire radio all stopped working. Around the
Krasnodar region registered only about 100 thousand pixels wired radio,
and even in fairly large cities the number of users wired radio does not
exceed 1-2% of the population.

Radio Mayak abandons MW/LW, Voice of Russia cuts.

VGTRK terminated the transmission contracts for all LW/MW transmitters
still carrying Radio Mayak, effective Jan 1. The terrestrial service of
Radio Mayak will be limited to FM in larger towns, VGTRK considers it as
economically not viable to still do more.

Voice of Russia for its part notified the transmitter operator RTRS on Nov
8 of its intention to cut the use of RTRS shortwave transmitters by half
and to spend in 2013 not more than 220 million roubles (as opposed to 550
millions in 2012) for RTRS services. The use of transmitters abroad is
even supposed to be cut by three quarters. This may result in the closure
of Voice of Russia transmissions to the former Yugoslavia, Spain,
Portugal, Iran, Afghanistan as well as the Ukraine and Moldova.

All this results in a uncertain future for the AM transmitter network of
RTRS after a program, worth 13.7 billion roubles, to replace the old
equipment has already been terminated. Some observers think that the
situation could result in the closure of facilities in the regions of
Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Khabarovsk and Kamchatka.


On a related note: Any actual observations concerning 1044 from Kurkino,
which was supposed to be turned off on Nov 10? And what about co-located
738 and 810 which carry/carried WRN and VOA, respectively, both in
theory now outlawed as well for more than 48 percent of the shares of
these broadcasters being in foreign possession?

paritelnuyu executive cooling radio tubes. In order to heat recovery in
1988 by the operational staff in the cooling system was installed a couple
of steam heat exchanger and thus implemented the idea for water heating
boiler in the winter and hot water supply of the village through waste
heat transmitter.

In the late 90's and into the 2000's to the vacated area in terms of
reference connected transmitters were installed, detached for PC-3 (SMR-5,
RMB-20 "Lightning", "blizzard", P-140).

Along with the installation of radio transmitters was installed and put
into operation the equipment in between radio set antenna switch "Sage."

In 1952, at the site of the object #437 has been the construction of the
complex, there is a new tehzdanie - terms of reference TK-2, control
building, a school, a boiler house, 3 houses and treatment facilities. In
terms of reference were installed two shortwave broadcast transmitter VCR-
120 with a set of transmit antennas SG. A lot of energy and creativity
when the equipment is made of IS Azarov, Ershov, VS Bernstein.

During the existence of the transmitters have undergone several
renovations to the change components, increasing power output.

Cardinal reconstruction transmitters were in 1993-1994. Transmitters were
switched to paroisparitelnuyu cooling system instead of water, to allow
utilization of process heat and provide heating of the residential village
and hot water. In this paroisparitelnaya cooling system was built
according to the original scheme with the supply of steam to cool down
instead of the standard (up), allowing to do without the add tehzdaniya
and associated high costs.

QSLing the World - A How-to Guide,
is written by Gayle Van Horn, a Monitoring Times columnist and the
shortwave frequency manager for the magazine. It is a comprehensive
resource and reference ebook for any radio hobbyist who is interested in
acquiring a verification of reception from almost any type of radio
station, whether it is broadcast, utility, amateur radio, satellites, or

For many radio listeners who tune to shortwave, broadcast (AM/FM/TV),
VHF/UHF scanner spectrum, or the amateur radio bands, the main objective
of listening is to collect stations for the listener's logbook. While some
radio hobbyists are program listeners who just listen for the content
being broadcast, there is a large segment of the hobby who collect written
proof that they have monitored the stations they have received or talked

These participants in this portion of the radio hobby attempt to QSL or
verify the reception of the stations they hear or work. They do this by
sending them a report of reception or their verification card in the hope
that the station staff will return a card or letter (a.k.a. a QSL)
verifying the radio reception. Along with QSLs, some radio hobbyists also
collect station memorabilia that may include such items as frisbees,
bumper stickers, pennants, decals, T-shirts, or anything associated with
the station logo, slogan or call sign.

This new 140 plus page Kindle eBook covers the "how-to's" of QSLing, drawn
from Gayle's 30 plus years of experience in the radio hobby. This includes
best general practices in logging, reporting, and mailing a station
reception report.

Should you try to send a report in a language you don't speak? What
enclosure should you include with your reception report? How long should
you wait for a reply from the station? Should you send a second report?
This book answers these common questions and much more.

Finally, Gayle addresses an often-neglected question - what do you do with
your QSL cards and letters after they start to accumulate? This and more
is now available in this new edition of QSLing the World.

This second edition of QSLing the World, now in Kindle eBook format, is
the most comprehensive compilation of trends and tips on the art of QSLing
ever published for the radio listening hobby. It is a must-have reference
in any hobby radio shack if you want to QSL the stations you are hearing
on your radios.
