BRAZIL   3355  R Educadora 6 de Agosto, Xapuri, AC, at 1012-1035 UT on
June 3, news, ID: "Por Difusora", news about countries with nuclear
capabilities, advts, ID: "Radio Difusora informando..", a public annmt
from Acre, ID: "Jornal Difusora, pela Agencia Publica de Comunicacao do
Acre", 33333. NB: I have used the station name from WRTH, but as you can
hear of my recording, they annmt "Difusora". We will continue to monitor
the case to get to the truth.

BRAZIL  4863.93  June 22, at 0026 UT.
UNID sounding religious, at 0256 UT noted on 4863.98 kHz. The next night,
June 23 at 0026 UT noted on 4863.92 and at 0256 on 4863.96 kHz. Judging
from changing directions of my antennas, the signal seems to come from LA.
Maybe Verdes Florestas has drifted down as there is no signal on their
normal frequency of 4865.03 kHz. Unfortunately too much noise from the
sweeper [CODAR] to be able to catch an ID.
(Thomas Nilsson-SWE, SW Bulletin June 23 via dxld)

re Brazilian on 4863.81 kHz.
Since neither Thomas nor Ralph's reply quotes anything back I am not sure
if these were provoked by my latest log and/or material in latest DXLD,
where the conosuristas are quite sure the 4864v kHz is R. Alvorada de
Londrina. Of course a definite ID of what's there now is desired, but here
is what they reported: (Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld June 29)

Re: yo me quede en 4863 kHz: No pierdas el tiempo. Es Alvorada. Desde las
08 UT entra como canon. Transmite las 24 horas.
(Arnaldo Slaen-ARG, UT June 23, condiglista yg via dxld)

Hay dos en esa frecuencia. La de 4864 es la que yo suelo escuchar mejor
dentro de la ensalada, y es Alvorada de Londrina, PR. Mis amigos japoneses
en Youtube a la que reportan hasta el cansancio en la misma frecuencia es
a Radio Verdes Florestas de Cruzeiro do Sul, estado de Acre (al norte de
Bolivia). Supongo que el heterodino es el producto de la sobremodulacion
de ambas. Nunca pude sacar a Acre con claridad por Montevideo.
(Rodolfo Tizzi-URG, ibid.)

4865. R. VERDES FLORESTAS. 25 de junio a las 0052 UT. ID de la emisora,
ademas de lectura de un pasaje biblico y rezo del Ave Maria en Portugues.
Senal estable con mucho QRN. Y con un poco de saturacion de modulacion.
SINPO: 43344.
(Claudio Galaz-CHL, condiglista yg via dxld)

Recorded again this night, June 29. The signal was stronger than preceding
nights. Henrik Klemetz listened to a piece of my recording at 0032z and
says "It seems you have recorded a piece of a relay from Com a Mae
Aparecida with TC for Brasilia."

I thought I heard R Clube da Bahia mentioned but not confirmed by HK, so
obviously something else. Thanks a lot Henrik for your assistance. I will
continue to record this one until I get a proper ID. None so far, not even
on TOH at 2200, 2300 or 0300z when I have recorded.

On 4865,028 R Verdes Florestas is back again after being absent a few Days
before June 25.
(Thomas Nilsson-SWE, dxld June 29)

re Brazilian on 4863,81 kHz. Yes! It is Radio Alvorada, from Londrina,
Parana State, Brazil. I can hear this station all nights, June 29.

signing off with "a kiss from Chris", which took our teenagers' fancies! I
also remember AFN's Christmas Eve specials with beautiful seasonal

GREECE/CHINA/FRANCE   Today July 1st noted no ERA3 transmission from
Thessaloniki. All 3 channels had same pop music program. At 15-16 UT Avlis
15630 kHz co-channel also underneath weak IBB-RFE-RL Tajik program from
Issoudun France.

Avlis 11645 kHz is the lower power level in western Europe, only tiny
sidelobe, compared to 9420 and 15 MHz. Suffers by co-channel Voice of
Korea, P.R. of Korea, Ar/En/Ar at 1500-1757 UT.

Avlis 9420 kHz suffers by 124 Hertz BUZZ / whistle tone from co-channel
CNR 13th Uyghur program from Lingshi Tibet China, on odd 9419.866 kHz.
But Mauno mentioned that buzz originate as a spurious from Avlis itself

ITALY   RAI Milan 900 kHz off air. RAI Siziano (Milano) on 900 kHz MW is
off air. Copper cables were stolen. Technicians are working to repair the
damage.
(Giampiero Bernardini-Italia, dxld July 2)

Re: RAI Milan 900 kHz off air.
Milano/Siziano is listed with 50 kW acc to well-informed sources. Let's
take a very sharp look at this and compare the, I think, first taken
pictures at
<http://www.mediasuk.org/archive/siziano.html>

with the presumably more recent
<http://the-antenna-site.eu/pictures/italy/lacchiarella-stazioneradio24.jpg>

First to note is that these transmitters have obviously been set up in the
place of a removed, larger transmitter.

Then in the days of the DRM euphoria the right one transmitter was not
there yet. I assume that at this time the Harris gear has only been used
for the DRM signal on 693 kHz while 900 kHz has still been operated with a
tube transmitter, and I seem to remember that the sound of the modulation
suggested this, too.

Now all the DRM gear is gone and another DX50 popped up where this desk
was. If I read it right the plate of the left one transmitter now reads
DX50, too. What's a "DXD100", is that a combiner to create a 100 kW block?

If so it appears that Siziano now has a 100 kW set-up for 900 kHz and no
higher powered tube transmitters are in regular use anymore, perhaps no
longer exist in operational condition there at all. So 100 kW now or,
maybe, just 50 kW if the quoted source is well aware of the current
operational practice.

Irregular 24hrs operation [and not] of txs listed is common.

But is it really irregular on 657 kHz? I think this frequency has been
used for nighttime service since Santa Palomba has first been forced off
air.

I suspect it may be a case of left hand not knowing what the right one is
doing. This substitute nighttime service was originally done by the
Neaples/Marcianise transmitter. Scenario: When the Marcianise transmitter
has been shut down the right hand decided to keep from now on Coltano on
air overnight instead while the left one still feeds this transmitter with
the studio output meant for the MW transmitters with the overnight break
(which as well could result in open carrier all the night would it not cut
back to the program feed soon after the elaborate ticking and beeping).

Btw, looking at the Harris pages also brought the explanation of the weird
55 kW power figure: That's what one gets when maxing out a 3DX50.
(Kai Ludwig-D, dxld July 2)

[later]  No carrier break or other change whatsoever around 2200 UT. And
I'd say the signal on 900 kHz sounds rather like 100 than 600 kW, at times
an Arab station becomes pretty obvious underneath (what else than Saudi
Arabia, but it's not // 1521 kHz as it should be). The audio is not only
distorted, it also has crackles on it; wiggle that patchcord!

And to what the grotesque non-closure of 657 kHz at midnight? I did not
pay attention to the announcement before midnight, obviously a canned
standard they play each day, but it seemed at if it stated that only FM
plus 900 and 1107 kHz are supposed to stay on air overnight. And so 657
kHz cut away at midnight, for a sequence of pulses and beeps I suspect of
not serving an engineering purpose at all. Then some open carrier, I wait
for it going off to reveal what's looming in the background (appeared to
be one of the FSU stations) but instead at 2202 it cut back to Radiouno
which it still transmits at 2230. I guess the transmitter (Pisa/Coltano,
the only remaining one now) will stay on air throughout the night, which
would be no new situation at all.

Btw, 657 and 900 kHz were tonight the only present Italian signals here in
eastern Germany at all ("present" means disregarding what may be embedded
in the jumble on other frequencies).
(Kai Ludwig-D, dxld July 2)

[later]  Again on air at 2130 UT, but with pretty unclean modulation.

Btw, are really still 600 kW in use at night, as stated here?

<http://the-antenna-site.eu/italy-lacchiarella-stazioneradio.html>

The only way to do this appears to be switching on an elder tube
transmitter. I assume the last picture on this page shows the complete
solid-state transmitter set-up at Siziano, and it are a DX 50, a DXD 100
and a DX 100. The DXD 100 could be the transmitter used for the DRM signal
on 693 kHz (if still on air, I can not detect any trace of DRM hiss on
this frequency right now, just the UK synchro network, producing a hollow
sounding BBC Five Live), the others for 900 kHz, which thus would be 100
or perhaps 150 kW now.
(Kai Ludwig-D, dxld July 2)

Re: RAI Milan 900 kHz off air.
Seems to be well in accordance with this on
<http://wrth.com/updates_national.html>

Many RAI medium wave transmitters have been closed and only the following
remain on the air: 657 kHz Pisa, 900 kHz Milano, 936 kHz Venezia, 981 kHz
Trieste, 999 kHz Torino, 1062 kHz Ancona/Cagliari/Catania/Trento, 1107 kHz
Roma, 1116 kHz Palermo, 1431 kHz Foggia, 1449 kHz Belluno and 1575 kHz
Genova.

Trieste and Trento are expected to close soon. The difference between
officially given and real powers seems to grow everywhere ...

Re: The demolition of the RAI Santa Palomba medium wave tower plant.

It seems that the big lattice tower was gone already in last August. I
think it should have been in frame here ...

The Thomcast (as the company was called at this point) solid-state gear,
which apparently boosted 846 kHz from the long-listed 540 to 1200 kW and
1332 kHz from 300 to 600 kW, must have been installed only a few years
before a bailiff shut it down in April 2000. As a substitute RAI leased
airtime on the Col de la Madone 702 kHz outlet and kept it until 2004.

In May 2000 RAI was allowed to put these transmitters back on air with
reduced power, only to get further closure orders in August 2000 and March
2002. After the last one they could restore the 846 kHz signal not before
April 2003, running 75 kW. It stayed on air this way with the usual
Radiodue programming until RAI took Radiodue and Radiotre off mediumwave
completely, effective 15 May 2004. That night Radiodue disappeared from
846 kHz at 23:58, then the transmitter carried for a few more minutes
Notturno Italiano until it has been switched off at about 00:10. 1332 kHz,
which had substituted for Notturno Italiano since 2002, carried it once
more and finally left the air for good at 06:00.

In January 2007 846 kHz has been brought back once more with low power and
from January 2008 used for DRM tests with a new TRAM 25 transmitter
(perhaps already used for the AM operation during 2007, the picture
inscription on the referenced page is ambiguous). At some point until
yearend 2011 this DRM signal disappeared again, this time obviously
marking the end of the transmitter site altogether.

MYANMAR   [and non-log]  6165, Thazin Radio. On June 28 checking their new
schedule, but clearly not broadcasting; 1230 UT found strong CNR6 with a
very weak VOV-4 underneath playing some indigenous music, which might
confuse people into thinking they are hearing Myanmar; at 1400 UT Vietnam
signed off (matching their schedule), leaving CNR6 in the clear, with no
trace of another station; checked again at 1430 UT looking for Myanmar's
English segment, but again only CNR6.

7200.06, Myanmar Radio, at 1431* UT on June 28. Running long past their
normal sign off time; played their indigenous theme music before going
off. As Wolfy has reported recently, their audio for a long time now had
been anywhere from terribly distorted to mildly garbled; am still hearing
the lower spur.

U.K.   BBC WS funding cut to be followed by increase next year The BBC
World Service is to have its funding cut by £2.22m this financial year,
the government has announced. BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten called the
news "disappointing", though the head of the World service said there
would be "no cuts to output". Funding for the World Service will transfer
from the Foreign Office to the BBC licence fee from next April. Lord
Patten said the BBC would increase the service's funding to £245m in 2014.
This figure is £6.5m more than the £238.5m currently being provided by the
Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

U.K. / JAPAN    MSF off partly on VLF 60 kHz.
MSF, the time signal transmitter located at Anthorn, Cumbria, England on
60 kHz is off-air all this week.

From 1 July to 5 July they are off continuously, but from 6 July to 18
July they are off during the day, returning overnight.

Details at <www.npl.co.uk>

After nearly 2 days without a signal, several of my MSF digital clocks are
all reading a few seconds out and none of them agree!

Have noticed also that Naval station GBZ, 19.6 kHz, also from Anthorn, is
also silent. Will have an opportunity to listen for the Australian Naval
station on 19.8 kHz.

USA/U.K./LUXEMBOURG/GERMANY/NATO Europeanwide
AFN celebrates the 70th anniversary on on 4th July.

I have just found in the radio forum a reference to the 70 year old
anniversary of the AFN.

In the series "AFN Wide OPEN" a 30 minute movie on the history of the AFN
is shown.

A quick featured movie - the target audience is known quite young now -
with many historical film documents, and occasionally some technical

USA   WYFR Final Transmission 31 JUN 2013 on 6115 kHz at 2230 UT.
The final transmission from this station starts shortly to Canada from
2230-0300 UTC on 6115 kHz.   <www.familyradio.com>

Family Radio was established in 1958 under its official name:
Family Stations Inc.
It aired its first broadcast on February 4, 1959, over radio station KEAR
FM in San Francisco CA and has for a number of years been using a
shortwave tramsmitter site in Florida and also relaying Radio Taiwan
International.
(Nick via BrDXC-UK July 1)

15440  - on June 30 at *2158 UT, sometime before 2159 UT the WYFR carrier
cuts on, 2200 opening RTI relay for the *last* time, local quality signal,
with just enough lite selective fading once in a while to remind us this
is via the dynamic medium of international shortwave by ionospheric
propagation. I've usually listened to RTI on a hit-and-miss basis, but on
this momentous occasion I monitor the entire hour (as re-relayed from the
shack FRG-7 by feeder on 88.1 MHz thruout the house to several FM radios).

News starts with record heat wave in Taibei; 2205 'Week in Review'; 2208
plug 'new' website  <http://english.rti.org.tw>
and 'This Day in History': 1859y, Niagara Falls tightrope stunt; 1894,
Tower Bridge opens in London; 1990, E&W Germany merge economies with DM
for both; outro by Andrew Ryan

2210  - plug upcoming shows 'Chinese To Go', 'Soundwaves', but first:
'Here In Taiwan' for Monday, July 1: soft stories such as an ATM at a
supermarket which keeps shocking people, bad grounding?; huge lines of
people applying for flight attendant jobs, which may not be as glamourous
as they think; ghost sightings

2225  - 'Chinese to Go', learning to say "give up your seat", as in a
courtesy by younger people to older people on bus, not always willing

2231  - rock music, must be 'Soundwaves', or fill? 2247 Chinese performer,
songs titled "If" and at 2255 "Do You Know".

2258-2300  canned announcement of entire RTI English schedule including
the canceled WYFR relays as if they will still exist, and mixing in low-
power MW relays via US stations on 1210, 750, without saying where they
are!

There was NO mention during this broadcast that it would be the final one
on SW to North America! So much for historical perspective.

2300  WYFR ID in Chinese (no English) and right into a Chinese dialect.

[see USA: WYFR final log in the interim]

UT July 1 on 6115 kHz, reception is never as solid as on 15440 kHz, but
recheck after Family Radio's own finale at 0300 UT: this RTI relay is
obviously a repeat of the one 5 hours earlier, same news of heatwave, etc.
And spotchecked, not listening to whole thing again.

Concludes with "This is WYFR, Okeechobee, Florida" at 0400 UT and pulled
the big switch, off at 0400:04* UT July 1, 2013.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld / hcdx July 1)

6115 - monitoring the last few minutes of WYFR, UT July 1 from 0245 UT,
playing "Onward Christian Soldiers" and "Battle Hymn of the Republic",
other hymns by chorus and orchestra interspersed with brief Bible verses
by non-Harold Camping announcer as "Words to Live By" probably regular
programming; fade out at 0259 for "It's people just like you who
[illegible] at the ministry of Family Radio". Last words? Not quite, after
almost minute of dead air, "This is WYFR, Okeechobee, Florida" ID, and
opening RTI repeat see TAIWAN [non]

After that hour, another legal ID as above spanning 0400 and carrier cut
forever at 0400:04*. Nothing ever heard to the effect that this was the
end of an era on shortwave.

Family Radio has not given any hint about what will become of the 14-
transmitter Okeechobee facility, but we hope it will live on with some
other identity, preferably secular. How about multiple NPR program
streams? Dream on.

From tomorrow we expect to hear WWCR on 6115 ex-6875, but only at 2100-
0100 UT.

USA   17775  KVOH, Los Angeles at 2043 UT tune-in to test broadcast,
playing Gospel songs, 2048 UT English ID followed by Spanish with numerous
IDs, address and mentions of what I assume were promos for themselves and
programs they will be carrying, such as "Voz de la Esperanza", ""La Voz de
la Victoria", "La biblia en las noticias"", "Radio Noticias, servicio
mundial".

2100 UT closing in English with "This is a test broadcast of K-V-O-H, the
Voice of Hope.", mention FCC authorization, final "This is a
test broadcast." and ID and off at 2100:50 UT. Ranged from poor to good,
noise high at times and deep fades, June 29.
(Harold Sellers-BC-CAN, editor of World English Survey and Target
Listening, available at <www.odxa.on.ca>  via DXplorer June 29)

Pretty much identical here in Victoria, Harold with a poor start with the
IS just above the noise floor, but improving to good at times, but with
deep fades as well to almost oblivion. Ended on a just barely audible
level in English, whereas the Spanish just before was much stronger. I
emailed a report to them, thanking them for actually returning to the air,
compared to so many stations these days that are abandoning SW in droves.

USA   QSL KVOH.  Off approx. 2000:30 UT after SP and EG IDs. An e-mail to
them promising a fuller rpt and MP3 tomorrow brought a quick reply:

"Thanks, Jerry. Very helpful. QSL will be sent.
Ray Robinson, KVOH - Voice of Hope, Los Angeles."

Which will be nice, as I never QSLed them when they were on before, depite
several rpts. {from John Herkimer:  e-mail address <mail @ kvoh.net>

Gave postal address of P.O.Box 102, Los Angeles, CA 90078 USA

USA   17775  KVOH Los Angeles test this Saturday June 29,
from Ray Robinson (California):

KVOH / Voice of Hope, Los Angeles is being reactivated this summer.
Currently the station is conducting a series of engineering test
transmissions on 17775 kHz. The next scheduled test will be this Saturday,
June 29th, for two hours from 1900-2100 hrs UTC. The power used will be 50
kW, primarily targeted at Cuba, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean,
but the signal should also be heard over a wide area of the U.S.A. (east
of the Rockies). There's even a slim chance it might be heard in Western
Europe before local sunset.

The test program will be bilingual, with announcements in both English and
Spanish. Reception reports will be very much appreciated to the mail
and/or email addresses given in the broadcast. All will be verified by
means of a new printed QSL card. Since the Voice of Hope is a non-for-
profit ministry, return U.S. postage would also be appreciated where
possible. : )

VATICAN STATE   21760 / 21740   Vatican Radio Special Broadcast.
Vatican Radio on air at 0845 UT on 21760 kHz in Port and 21740 kHz in
French with a live religious broadcast. Can anyone suggest which
transmitter they will be using? Based on the poor signal strength and
target area I am guessing it might be Talata Volondry but if anyone can
clarify that would be appreciated.

usually Rome-noon bcast on 21 MHz are from Vatican Radio tx site north of
Rome at SMG Santa Maria di Galeria. Azimuth lobe is southwards approx. 170
/ 185 / or 236 degr and only weak side-/backlobe reaches Albion.

Downunder is deep winter season propagation at present. Why they should
use 21 MHz from downunder up to NoAfrica on very long distances?

If there is a TX free access available from MDG at this time hour ?

Send a RR to the Vatican Radio engineering departement and ask for
explanation. They are nice guys overthere. 73 wb df5sx
