ASCENSION ISL   21460drm  Live DRM SW transmission aimed at Southern

hour test scheduled today, weak signal only after 1040 UT ...

Live DRM SW transmission aimed at Southern Africa on July 19th on the
occasion of the SABA workshop.

The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium will use its strong presence
at this year's Southern African Broadcasting Association (SABA) Digital
Broadcasting Infrastructure and Platforms Event, during Mediatech
(Africa's biggest technology and trade show exhibition for the media and
entertainment industry) to demonstrate the possibilities of the DRM
standard. During its morning workshop on Friday 19th July DRM experts,
representing well-known Consortium members companies and organizations
such as Ampegon, Fraunhofer IIS, and Nautel, will make presentations and
be available to answer any questions.

To complement the workshop DRM is pleased to announce that it is planning
a live broadcast to South Africa which will be transmitted on 21460 kHz
during the Workshop. The two hour transmission will feature BBC programmes
in English and will be on air from 1000-1200 UT.

Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Chairperson, says: "This is an exciting opportunity
for delegates to not just hear about the technology but to listen to the
excellent audio quality that DRM can bring to radio lovers in Africa. DRM
is the only standard for all bands below and above 30 MHz that could offer
so much to listeners across the continent."

GH: Wolfy,
At five hours before sunset in Vancouver, you are not going to be
hearing/seeing CKZU on US remotes unless they are close to it. Did that
include the one on Bainbridge Island WA? And on that you would not be
getting CKZN.

[later]  As It Happens is at 6:30-7:30 pm local time, followed by As It
Happened -- archive edition at 7:30 pm. This fits for Vancouver
scheduling: 6:30 pm = 0130 UT, not Newfoundland. Were you really hearing
this on a west coast receiver?

WB: Thanks Glenn, excuse, in deep night - when sleepy - it is not easy for
European ears to be familiar with reality and entries in the various radio

GERMANY   15785  Hamburger Lokalradio will be on another test broadcast
via the transmitter of MVBR at Goehren/Schwerin in the 19m-band. The test
broadcast will run on the 14th of July at the following time:
06.00 to 20.00 UTC.

e-mail to <redaktion @ hamburger-lokalradio.de>

Re 15785 kHz.
And now at 8-9 UT July 14 reception from the European Perseus Remote
Front:

The guys at the Schwerin Goehren TX station calibrated release exactly on
15785.000 kHz.

To hear nothing on remote net unit in Moscow (though as an indicator Galei
Zahal army forces radio of Israel on 15850.006 kHz is fair to hear).

In Tampere Finland location peak 'is visible' well. Then words and song
scraps with poor S=2-3 just so over threshold signal level. Works best if
Y.T. completely turn off the AGC function to nil, and move the audio
volume entirely manually by hand.

For this, the Finns and Swedes have a web network problem, the locations
of
Perseus installations are mostly in rural areas, on inadequate speed level
to the connected worldwide WEB network, even in the neighborhood of
Stockholm capital, since Perseus net units also suffer by poor ADSL
connection.

At 0852 UT bard sings on a guitar with flute tones sprinklings.

Only a small peak is visible in England and Isle of Wight / Portsmouth
Perseus units.

Completely "dead propagation zone" on 19 meterband in Belgium, Germany,
Netherlands, and Switzerland, on short distances less than 1200
kilometers.

Only snatches of music 'to guess' 1200 kms south on the French/Italian
Riviera in San Remo / Genoa / Monte Carlo too.

Typical signal spread just on 19 mb.

Hi,  It is great honor for us, who work for ERT/ERA (Hellenic Radio and
Television). to hear from people that interested on AM.

As you may know, the Greek government, with a fascist decision, fired all
of us and removed the legal person of ERT S.A.

They say that they want to create a new Public radio and television fair
and clean, at the standards of BBC.

We still transmit here, until the things go to an end. Or waiting for some
person, from the government to give the keys of the radio station.

Your report, is correct. This is the Facebook page of ERA Chania. You can
see there photos of the 100 Kilowatt AM transmitter.

INDIA/SOUTH ASIA   Andy Sennitt posted on PCJ Media and PCJ Radio Facebook
group: July 18, 2013.

I'm pleased to announce that DXAsia, which has been unreachable since
early June, is now back online at a new URL - DXAsia.in. If you have
bookmarked this site, please update your bookmarks. Alok is busy updating
the pages. It's possible that some of you won't see it for a day or two if
your ISP is using a DNS server that is updated less frequently, but it's
already working here and in India. We only got the site back earlier
today.

The story of why the site went offline is a long one, but basically I
registered the old domain 10 years ago, changed my email address and
forgot to update the details with the company that held the registration,
so I never received a notification that it was due for renewal. They have
proved less than helpful in getting us back online, so we decided to
register the site with an Indian company that Alok can deal with more
easily. It continues to be hosted in the UK. Please spread the word that
the site is back.

The website  <http://dxasia.in/>  states:

DXAsia was "invented" over a meal in a Dutch restaurant, which seems a
rather unlikely place to discuss a Web site focusing on radio in South
Asia. But some of the best ideas are conceived in strange places. The idea
behind the site couldn't be simpler: to create a place on the Web where
the latest schedules, news and information about radio broadcasts from and
to South Asia can always be found. The aim is not to be exclusive or first
with the news, but to be accurate. We believe we can achieve that with the
help and support from Andy Sennitt, our advisor and the main editors,
Alok Dasgupta and Victor Goonetilleke, who live in the region. DXasia is
now fully automated, thanks to the hard work of Abhishek Dasgupta.

DXAsia is updated from a central database using scripts hosted on the
server. It is hosted in the UK on servers in London's Docklands. Recently
we have made major improvements to the site. The site is now fully
database-driven, and the editors are able to update the schedules
remotely.You, the user, will be able to see the South Asian schedules by
station and language. A recent addition to the Home Page is the option to
display all the transmissions currently on the air, including all the
frequencies, in UTC time with one click of the mouse. We have also added
transmitter sites for each frequency, which will be a big help to DXers.

A new search facility has been added using Structured Query Language (SQL)
which permits the user to perform complex queries and see the results from
all the data on the site. This facility is still being developed and
improved, and your feedback is welcome. Our contact details are at the top
of every page.

The longtime shortwave listeners may remember they used to broadcast
overseas programs in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Georgian,
Persian, Hungarian, Romanian, Russian, as well as a home service program
in Hebrew and external service in other Jewish languages:

Yiddish, Bucharian, Ladino, Mograbit. They also had a DX-Program in
English, hosted by Ben Dalfen, aired on Sundays. Their broadcasts in
Russian, Hungarian and Georgian were a subject to jamming.

[also]  fall 1952 Article About VOA Transmitter Sites:

<http://jandd.org/Okinawa/VOA%20Cathode%20Press%20Fall%201952.pdf>

re Early 1952 VOA publication.
According to my records, VOA inaugurated a relay station at Malolos,
Bulacan, on 11 Sept 1947. It consisted of a 50 kW transmitter on 920 kHz,
as well as a 7.5 kW, and two 50 kW SW txes.

In 1953 a second station was added at Poro, La Union, with a 1000 kW
transmitter on 1140 kHz, and two 15 kW SW txes, and subsequently
two 35 kW, and two 100 kW SW txes.

In 1969 the Malolos facilities were acquired by Radio Veritas and Voice of
the Philippines, as the Tinang station had recently come on the air.

I hope this helps.

MOROCCO   New Information about old Morocco SW sites (Ref IBB & RCA sites)

WB: from great <http://coldwar-c4i.net/index.html>

The older VOA TXing site is of interest to me.
Finally the coordinates revealed :-)  ... as of May 2013.

On the older GE maps you can see visible rhombic antennas to the south &
to the east of the building & elsewhere a whole field of masts, the
configuration or type of antennas employed isn't clear at all.

I'm naming the old Tangier site as: Dayedaate  (per Google Earth)
(Ian Baxter-AUS, SW TXsite July 18)

The Tangier RCA site is virtually invisible now, with all the development
in the area, according to my contacts in Tangier and looking at the
current Google Earth shot, remnants of the old receiver site are visible.
The TX site is gone.

If you go back to earlier Google Earth photos, say, back to 2003, the RCA
operational complex is very visible.

The RCA transmitter building complex is at:
35 41 12.74 N  05 57 09.37 W

The RCA receiver building complex is at:
35 41 32.05 N  05 57 00.52 W

VOA was in the neighborhood, for pretty much the same reason as RCA,
a decent HF propagation path from the US.

The old VOA Tangier receiving site is at:
35 43 22.88 N  05 52 01.14 W

The old VOA Tangier transmitter site is at:
35 38 42.16 N  05 54 49.25 W

The two VOA sites look pretty much the same in the latest Google Earth
shots as they did in the earliest Google Earth shots. Guess that comes
from not have beachfront property.

Tooting my own horn, here is a link to a number of photos I took at the
RCA sites in 2008:

OMAN   15140  Radio Sultanate de Oman, 2043-2200* July 13, man announcer

woman hosting program of talks and more music. At 2200 UT the usual array
of bells and chimes followed by a man with ID prior to carrier being

{* I have my doubts, but BBEF unit rather in the 50 kW power range,
due of main power limitation. Chinese made tx in Somalia is a 50 kW one,
the previous unit til 2011 year was 10 kW on this horizontal dipole, so I
guess present power is in the 50 kW range, to match the 7120 fix frequency
antenna.

Maybe in reality less, depending of the stored power gain, see
installations on Baldur's website, photo images seen on his 2009y visit
report.

TAIWAN   RTI Transmission Site Developments.
Reports about Tainan SW transmissions having permanently ended are false.

Tainan site is/has undergone repairs to the existing transmission
antennas. Why? Well this site will be used until current development work
at RTI Paochung site has completed (new antennas / building) or until
Paochung has reached full capacity. Currently the expected end date for
SW transmissions from Tainan is expected to be around the end of 2013.

Disassembly work of some antennas at Huwei has most likely started by now.
Transmissions from this site will close very shortly.

Danshui SW txer site recently (last week) conducted new test
transmissions.

No specific freq/site info is available my end sorry.
