ANTARCTICA ARGENTINE   RADIO NACIONAL ARC-NGEL SAN GABRIEL CELEBR+ UN
NUEVO ANIVERSARIO DE TRANSMISIONES DESDE LA ANT-RTIDA ARGENTINA,

by gruporadioescuchaargentino.

Por estos días se celebra un nuevo aniversario del comienzo de
transmisiones de otra emisora argentina de onda corta que, al igual que
nuestra RAE, pone en el aire una voz argentina para el mundo.En efecto, el
pasado 20 de Octubre se cumplieron treinta y cuatro años de la puesta en
operaciones de la primera y única radio que emite su programación desde el
continente blanco.

Se trata de LRA 36 Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel que comenzó con sus
emisiones en 1979, desde la Base Marambio, en la Antártida Argentina. Esta
radio está ubicada a los 62 24 S de latitud sur y 56 59 W de longitud
oeste, en la Bahía Esperanza, extremo norte de la Península Antártica.

Vivir en esa adversa geografía no es tarea sencilla, ya que se han llegado
a registrar sensaciones térmicas de 60 grados bajo cero y vientos que han
superado los 250 kilómetros por hora. La primera experiencia radial se
concretó en la Nochebuena de 1978, ocasión en la que se emitieron
villancicos y la misa de gallo ofrecida por el capellán de la Base
Esperanza. Esa transmisión fue captada por las estaciones antárticas
argentinas y extranjeras con una buena calidad de recepción. A partir de
entonces la actividad se intensificó hasta que, el 20 de octubre de 1979,
se realizó la primera transmisión oficial en la frecuencia de 6030
kilohertz.

Esta radio es una de las pocas emisoras de Argentina en Onda Corta y es
por ello que es tan querida por los diexistas de todo el mundo, quienes se
disputan por poseer su tarjeta QSL, por ser la única emisora en
operaciones en ese continente. LRA36 Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel
emite en la frecuencia de 15476 kHz en la banda de 19 metros y utiliza un
transmisor de 10 kilovatios. La emisora está a cargo de miembros del
personal militar de la base, dedicándose los mismos al control,
mantenimiento y operación técnica de la consola y equipos, y siendo sus
locutoras, esposas de distintos integrantes de la dotación. Previo a la
invernada, el personal que fue designado a formar parte de LRA36, asiste a
un curso dado en el gubernamental Instituto Superior de Enseñanza
Radiofónica (ISER).

Esta es la primera y única [sic] emisora del mundo ubicada el la Antártida
y desde su puesta al aire, quedó incorporada al Servicio Oficial de
Radiodifusión, siendo su primer operador el Sargento Primero Eduardo F. De
Carli, y en la locución la Señora Silvia Luca de Arnouil. Como decíamos
antes, LRA36 opera con una potencia de 10 kW, irradiando en la frecuencia
de 15476 kHz, en la banda de 19 metros, en amplitud. También posee un
transmisor en FM en la frecuencia de 97.6 MHz destinado a la retransmisión
de Radio Nacional e información para los habitantes de la base. Esta
emisora desde su fundación fue creando gran interés en sus transmisiones
de ondas cortas, no solo en quienes habitan la Base Esperanza, sino que
trascendió para ser escuchada en otras Bases Antárticas, todo nuestro
país, resto de América del Sur, Central, y Norte, Europa y Asia.

Actualmente, las transmisiones son diarias y van de lunes a viernes de
15:00 a 18:00 hora Argentina (1800 a 2100 UT). Además se emite en
frecuencia modulada (FM) 97.6 MHz con transmisiones diarias de 08:00 a
12:00 hs. (1100 a 1500 UT) frecuencia en la cual se irradia un programa
informativo y de interés general.

Día a día, por la onda corta de LRA36 se difunde un programa por la tarde,
que va de lunes a viernes de 15:00 a 18:00 hs.

LU llamado: "De Esperanza al Mundo" y como su nombre lo indica, es
escuchado en todo el Planeta. Así lo testimonian centenares de
notificaciones llegadas a la radio por Diexistas de todo el Planeta.

Para conectarse con la emisora Usted lo puede hacer por teléfono al:

BRAZIL   6160.06 More ...
6160.06  on 17 July, 1045 UT, Rádio Rio Mar, Manaus, Portuguese, news,
ID's, lengthy newscast, news from Amazonas, clear - fine reception,
nothing on 9695 kHz. 45333.
(Stig Hartvig Nielsen-DEN, hcdx Aug 8)

Well, all indications seem to point to R. Rio Mar in Manaus, Brazil.
Thanks to Ron Howard for passing along this logging from Stig from last
year. Freq matches up perfectly. Just checked sunrise in Manaus and its
0936 UT today. And since about 80% of the signal path is in darkness, that
could be it. None of the lists that I have show R. Rio Mar here anymore.
My last logging for R. Rio Mar was from 2011 on 31mb. I've never logged it
myself on 49mb. Still, a positive ID would be nice. Thanks Ron, and thanks
for everyones attention.
(Dave Valko-UK, hcdx Oct 31)

Could be. However, in Chile right now Claudio Galaz is picking up this
one:
<http://streema.com/radios/Super_Rede_Boa_Vontade_de_Radio_610_AM>

Both offer low key programming. If you want to compare with the actual
internet stream, here is the one from Manaus,
<www.rederiomar.com.br>  Both are OK right now.

CHINA  [TAIWAN  tentat.]  5010 kHz  ?
Hearing something on 5010 kHz, beginning at 2235 t/in, still going as I
type this. Way down in the noise. Definitely not any MARS stations that
usually hang out around 5009.5 USB at night. Lots of talk by various
announcers & mx bits. My gut reaction has me thinking China. Anyone else
hearing this?
(Scott R. Barbour-NH-USA, DXplorer / dxld Oct 30)

I tried 5010 tonight (Nov 1). There was nothing at 2135 UT (except
Equatorial Guinea with a weak signal on 5005.02 kHz).

But on recheck at 2148-2155 UT I heard CNR-1 program on 5010.00 with a new
Chinese transmitter, maybe replacing 4750 kHz ?

It was clearly // CNR-1, Golmud, on 4800 kHz (heard with SINPO 45344), but
5010 kHz was about 2 seconds behind, so it must be a regional transmitter.
It was heard here with SINPO 34343 with slight CWQRM. A man and a woman
were talking in Mandarin, mentioning Shanghai.
(Anker Petersen-DEN, DXplorer Nov 1)

CNR1 could also be a jammer against Taiwan SOH on 60 meter band ?  wb.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Nov 3)

re 5010 kHz.
It seems, that RTI has started using 5010 kHz in B13 and China is jamming
them, typically with not just one transmitter.

At 2300 there seem to be two transmitters, the other delayed by about one
second. Also the other tx is on 5010.000 kHz exact, the other 5 Hz above.

COSTA RICA   Re: Cierre de Cariari Costa Rica relay closing.

Do any of our Spanish members have close contact with REE?

Would love to see some pictures of the Cariari SW transmitter site before
it closes or is demolished. Also, not firmly established are the Google
Earth coordinates of this shortwave transmitter site. Anyone who can
procure any material to preserve our memories of this SW transmitter site
would be much appreciated.

Thanks so much for the photographs José :-)

It is 'believed' that the REE Cariari shortwave transmission centre is
somewhere around these Google Earth coordinates:
10 25 12 N  83 43 12 W

Unfortunately there is no high or medium resolution satellite imagery
available that can resolve the location of the tx centre.
(Ian Baxter-AUS, SW TXsite / dxld Oct 17 / Nov 1)

I'm guessing that with the financial woes of the Spanish government it was
a choice between closing Cariari or making major cuts to overall output,
and the relay station lost. Wonder if anyone is interested in purchasing
the Cariari facility? Doubtful, considering the demise of other Western
Hemisphere sites in the past decade.

Will anything be left on SW from Central America other than Radio Verdad?
Haven't checked for the two Hondurans recently.

I'm not sure at all, but maybe the REE Cariari site is here:

locate Banco de Costa Rica, enlarge a bit and go somewhat west. At the
southern skirts of Barrio de Espana there is area marked Radio Espana.
Maybe that's the one or then not.

CUBA   Further chex of RHC on first day post-DST, Sunday Nov 3:

As expected, the first English broadcast at 1900-2000 UT has shifted an
hour later back to 2000-2100 UT, still on 11760 kHz; and with 'DXers
Unlimited' running at 2015 Sunday.

17720 kHz is still on with European service including Portuguese (or
rather Brazilian) at 2016 UT check, much stronger than 11760 kHz.

Like last B-season, the "African" broadcast has shifted a UT hour
*earlier* rather than later, 2200-2300 UT instead of 2300-2400 UT instead
of 0000-0100 UT, still on 11880 kHz.

That re-separates it from the 'Tropical' service, English one hour later
at 0000-0100 UT, instead of 2300-2400 UT, still on 5040 kHz.

After 0100 UT the English hours are still over and over on 6000, 6165,
including DXUL starting at 0212 UT Monday Nov 4. At 0350 UT near end of
Mailbag, "Ed Newman" answers inquiry about compañero "Langston Wright", "a
great journalist" [a.k.a. skyjacker Michael Finney] who passed away in
2005. Remains to check whether any changes after 0500 UT, but last night
already, 5040 kHz was still in Spanish, maybe English 0600 UT.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld Nov 4)

6060 // 6100 // 5040 kHz, Nov 3 at 0539 UT in Spanish, RHC has already
made un-DST one-hour timeshifts. At what exact time did it officially end
on the greatest of the Antilles? Seems a bit early to me; since Cuba
Revolucionaria is in lockstep with Yankee Imperialism, the end should be
at 2 am local = 0600 UT.

6100 kHz had previously closed by 0500 UT, and 6060 and 5040 kHz would be
in English after 0500 UT. RHC English is really on 6000 and 6125 kHz
(latter still mixed with Spain), but 6165 kHz is off the air;
unfortunately, nothing audible from CHAD or anything else. Remains to be
monitored how RHC's post-A-13 and post-DST scheduling shakes out in next
few days.

4765, Nov 3 at 0544, R. Progreso is still on too. It had been at 0000-
0400v UT, but this is almost two hours later than before; its full new
schedule also yet to be determined.

RHC frequencies and programming have also shifted one hour later in the
morning, Nov 3 at 1319 UT, 9850, and 9550 kHz are still on instead of
closing at 1300 UT, along with 9540, while 13780 and 15340 kHz are not yet
on. 9550 kHz now has heavy QRM from CRI Vietnamese. Also on: 11690, 11750,
11760, 11860, 15230, 17580 kHz. By 1416 UT on 13780 and 15340 kHz are on.

At 1337 UT, RHC is ending a tribute to Andean nations with their music,
and starting 'Cuba Campesina' one hour later than during summer. As
expected, DX program 'En Contacto' is back to its winter timing of Sundays
1435 ex-1335 UT; starting with birthday greetings, brief salute to Radio
Enciclopedia, and then repeating on popular request due to poor
propagation last week, at 1439 UT, the 5-minute War of the Worlds segment
and reoffering special QSL card.

The Frecuencias page is currently blank, while they figure out what they
are going to do:
<http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/frecuencias>
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld Nov 3)

At 1409 UT Nov 5 I survey all the RHC frequencies on two radios, to find
which ones from the secondary site are an echo apart from the others:

11690, 17580, and JBA 9540 are the apart group, compared to 11750, 11760,
11860, 13780, 15230, 15340 kHz which are synchronized with each other.

FRANCE   Radio Orient 1350 kHz off air. From Ydun Ritz's Medium Wave Info
site:

Hello Ydun, some (bad) news about MW in France: since Friday 25th October
- RADIO ORIENT is no longer on 1350 kHz here in Nice. The station stop the
use of this frequency, as normally Radio Orient will be on Digital Radio
in Nice from December...
73's Christian Ghibaudo-F (29 Oct 2013)

<http://mediumwave.info/news.html>

Just checked 1350 and no sign of Radio Orient (10 kW Nice) which used to
be the strongest signal on the channel. Instead weak TWR interval signal
(via Gavar Armenia) at 1815 UTC co-channel weak (pres) Magyar R6, Gylor
judging by the style of music.

1350 kHz is of course a UK LPAM channel as well as an Americas frequency,
so be interesting to see what else comes through in the absence of Radio
Orient.
(Alan Pennington-UK, BrDXC-UK Nov 1)

C. GHIBAUDO: 1350 kHz RADIO ORIENT IS CLOSED. Our contact friend in Nice
report the 1350 kHz operated from Fontbonne has been closed down for
economic problems!

Bonsoir, Et bien voilà des nouvelles de Radio Orient: Aujourd`hui j`ai
téléphoné au centre émetteur de Fontbonne. Radio Orient a arrêté les
émissions sur 1350 kHz. Donc malheureusement Radio Orient à Nice en ondes
moyennes c`est FINI....

A partir du mois de décembre, normalement Radio Orient sera sur la Radio
Numérique Terrestre, mais pas encore de récepteurs dans les magasins. Et
voilà que la dernière station privée française à abandonné les ondes
moyennes.

Je ne sais pas si la fréquence de Nîmes 1602 kHz, est toujours utilisée;
je ne suis pas arrivé à avoir Radio Orient au téléphone !!!

A bientôt, 73`s Christian

FRANCE/ALGERIA   9535 kHz, on Oct 27 at 0526 UT is now REE in Spanish
running at least an hour longer instead of RTA via France; which is still
on 7295 kHz at 0531 UT and reactivated non-// 5865 kHz at 0534 UT. What
does HFCC say?

All these are dated for the entire B-13 season via ISSoudun, France site:
04-07   5865
05-06   7295
18-19  11955 (both transmitters)

20-2158 9395
21-23   9520, 7340, 7495 (really on only two of the three or four?)

Furthermore, searching HFCC file on TDA finds they are *still* registering
imaginary transmissions from the two sites within Algeria itself, ORG and
BEC on all these frequencies; if you ever hear RTA on any of them it will
be big news that those sites have finally been completed and put on the
air:

Greek police clear former broadcaster ERT's offices
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24847278>
(Robert Wilkner-FL-USA, DXplorer Nov 7)

Greek police have raided the headquarters of ERT, the occupied public
broadcaster which was officially closed by the government already in June
2013.

The police operation began at around 4am local time, when witnesses said
six police vans stationed themselves outside the entrance.

Social media accounts claim the sacked employees who have continued to
operate via internet and satellite were given a matter of minutes to
vacate the building.

ERT's headquarters have been the site of numerous protests in recent
months, not just against the shutdown of the broadcast company, but also
against the government and its austerity policies.

GUAM   15445drm   KTWR DRM tests.
Victor Goonetilleke shared on the PCJ Radio and PCJ Media Facebook group:

KTWR TESTS DRM Mike Sabin <msabin @ twr.org>

We have another DRM test next week. This will be the first official DRM
test for TX7, a Thomson TSW-2250D. On Nov 5-6, we will be on 15445 kHz
with 32 kW at 1500-1530 UTC. The beam heading will be 285 degrees. On Nov
7-8, time, power, and heading are the same, but we will use 13760 kHz. We
will use Mode C, 11Kb/s, MSC=16QAM again.

The previous test with TX6 was picked up well by remote monitoring systems
all over India, but we had very few human monitors there. Most reports
came from outside India (Japan, Taiwan, EU, Sri Lanka, etc...). If you
could get the word out to people you know in India, that would be a great
help. Of course, we still want to hear from people outside India, also...

Since we are using a different antenna for this test, the side-lobes will
be quite different from what we saw in the previous test. There is also
likely to be some coverage footprint differences between the two
frequencies. Another variable is that TX7 achieved an SNR of 31.7dB in the
22-meter band while only getting 30.4dB on 19 meters.

I'll be the shift operator again. If you e-mail or Skype me with problems
you note, maybe I can make corrections in real time.
(via Mike Terry-UK, dxld Nov 4)

re KTWR DRM 15445 kHz outlet.

Just checked, and as expected, nil from KTWR on the east coast. BSKSA on
15335 is very strong and splatters over to past 15440. Buzzy too, which is
not too unusual. Perhaps the lower frequency for later in the week might
propagate, but I still doubt it.

INDIA   11985, on Oct 24 at 0053 UT, yet another anomaly from All India
Radio, Delhi-Khampur site, which is supposed to be amid the 0045-0115
Sinhala service like // 11740 via Goa, and sometimes really is. But now on
11985, fair with flutter, is an interval signal I have never heard before
and nothing like the usual one from AIR. It's 36 or 37 notes on a piano,
mostly in higher register, repeating over and over between very brief
pauses. Also with hum. Meanwhile 11740 is totally separate with talk in
presumed Sinhala.

11985 IS keeps going past 0100 which of course is not hourtop in out-of-
step India, except it morphs into that out-of-whack webfeed or skipping-
tape sound I have heard before. Traces of the same melody can be heard
within it. 0102 it's improved, still breaking up; 0107 better with less
breakup. 0108.5 stops suddenly leaving just some hum on open carrier and
for the next minute or so till I quit. Wish I had a recorder handy for
this possibly unique IS transmission.

Another check UT Oct 26 for the circa 0100 AIR anomalies: This time I have
the recorder handy in case the unknown 36-37 note IS appear again on
11985, but there is not even any signal on 11985! Could be due to
disturbed propagation, except 11740 Goa is still there, altho with SAH
from CCI, poor with flutter. 9910, Oct 26 at 0055, tone test 1 kHz,
typical of what AIR sometimes runs on 11985 at this time, prior to
starting the wrong service Sindhi at 0100 --- AND there is NO signal on
11985, so suspect tonight it's doubly wrong.

Uplooked later, 9910 is supposed to be in a sesquihour break between two
Aligarh site transmissions, Tamil ending at 0045, and Pashto starting at
0215; while 11985 is listed as Khampur site for Sinhala at 0045-0115. At
0058 tone stops on 9910 and standard AIR IS starts; but other stuff to
check including Chaski and pirates around hourtop. When I return to 9910
at 0106, it's off, so somebody fixed that mistake, but still nothing
audible on 11985; 11740 is still on; and 9870 VBS from Bengaluru is in as
usual mixing Turkey with one more day to go of that collision. 11985, Oct
27 at 0052, AIR this time has a fair-good signal, but open carrier/dead
air with some flutter, instead of scheduled Sinhala service; while 11740
via GOA is poor with flutter, CCI.

Hoping for that 36-37 note IS on 11985 I heard once, but not even a tone
test today, and goes off the air sometime between 0059 and 0100. There is
some new ACI from 11980 China in B-13, i.e. +01-02 via Kunming. Nothing on
9910 tonight nor in B-13 schedule, altho AIR was on there last night. It
seems there are NO AIR registrations yet in HFCC B-13, so we have no idea
what their plans are, if any. They have been tardy or absent before.

11985, Oct 28 at 0051, the wild AIR transmitter is on and just barely
modulated with algo, stronger than 11740 which has CCI and I can't tell if
they match; at 0100 I find that 11985 has gone off and 11740 is now poor
with music, flutter. These are the two previously scheduled for the 0045-
0115 Sinhala service via Khampur and Goa respectively.

From Chris Kadlec (Korea):

"I don't do shortwave as FM is my thing, but MND is my local station,
boosting its power quite a bit in August, and broadcasts from Chuncheon.
The Ministry of National Defense operates plenty such stations, almost all
of which are my locals or rather nearby me. The MND either operates them
(the FM stations) or supports them (if they didn't, they would be gone
obviously), including Jayu FM and Jayuui Sori, which piggyback the
Pyongyang FM and Echoes of Unification (both North Korean) frequencies
along the border, especially from Haeju.

Both networks broadcast propaganda of varying degrees aimed at listeners
in the north. 97.7 Jayu FM in Paju, just to my north, is carefully
positioned beside 97.75, North Korea's new propaganda network (formerly
Pyongyang FM before last year's programming switch in which they even try
to speak with a more South Korean accent and use words they use here as
opposed to in the north, absolutelytargeting listeners here).

Both Jayu (94.5, 97.7, and 100.6, the latter being a frequency we don't
even use in this country!) and Jayuui Sori (101.7, 103.1, 107.3) have
staggered on-air hours as well as the Seoul FM jammers (92.5, 97.8, 103.7;
97.8 being a tad close to Jayu on 97.7 too). Jayu FM plays news, music,
and ads as well.

Finding the exact location of these frequencies has been a bitch, although
I finally nabbed 97.7 on Sunday after 4 years of wondering.A friend
brought a shortwave radio here from the US and all North Korean stations
are wide open here - no jamming at all by the south."

Thanks to Chris for this additional information!

KYRGYZ REP   1287 - ex-1467 -  new[?] TWR Bishkek outlet.

<http://www.twr.org/site_schedule/?site=Central%20Asia%20East>

Bisher wurden noch keine neuen TWR Programme Richtung Afghanistan/Pakistan
berichtet, und die TWR Central Asia Programme laufen jetzt auf 1287 statt
1467 kHz.

Da koennte man nur heftig spekulieren, ob vielleicht der 500 kW Sender
speziell fuer 1467 kHz geplant ist (und spaeter dort auf die neue 4-Mast
Sidefire Antenne geschaltet wird) und der 150 kW Sender auf 1287 kHz
parallel laufen soll, oder die 1287 Hz Aussendung sind bereits der 500 kW
Sender (nur via die alte Soviet-USSR non-directional Antenne fuer Central
Asia) ...

Das ist noch ein Stochern im Nebel, kann auch sein, dass Bishkek das alte
150 kW Soviet Schaetzchen von 1467 kHz nach 1287 kHz gemovt/frei gemacht
hat, der starke neue TWR Sender fuer AFG und PAK ueber die - im Google
Earth - sichtbare neu gebaute 4-Mast Sidefire Antenne in Bishkek dann auf
1467 kHz aufscheint.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Nov 1)

Ich bin nicht zuhause, und kann z.Zt. nicht auf Alan Davies' exzellente MW
Liste zugreifen, um mal die Moeglichkeiten fuer TWR Mittelwellen Empfang
in AFG und PAK auf 1287 und 1467 kHz abzuschaetzen.

Lassen wir uns mal ueberraschen. Die TWR CeAS Aussendungen via Bishkek und
Gavar sind seit einem Jahrzehnt schon immer etwas 'veiled' abgelaufen, --
das ist ein sehr, sehr schwieriges Feld fuer die evangelische
Missionierung.
(wb.)

Kirgisien, ex 1467. Passt auch wunderbar zu der IS um 1715 UT da auch auf
1467 kHz die IS alle 15 Minuten zum Start einer neuen Sprache gesendet
wurde. Und erklaert mir auch warum ich auf 1467 kHz in den letzten Wochen
kein TWR Signal mehr hoeren konnte. Handelt sich wohl um den neuen TWR
Sender nahe Bishkek.

Danke fuer deine Einschaetzung Wolfgang.
Die gewaltig umfangreiche Pacific Asian Log Liste meldet auf 1467 kHz
einen 100 kW Sender in Bangkok und einen in Jeypore, danach waere der 75
kW Sender in Bishkek schon der staerkste.

Auf 1287 nur AIR aus Goa mit 100 kW - und eben Bishkek mit gelisteten 150
kW, das sollte schon zu hoeren sein.
(Christoph Ratzer-AUT  OE2CRM, A-DX Nov 3)

Auf 1287 kHz nur AIR aus Goa mit 100 kW - und eben Bishkek mit gelisteten
150 kW, das sollte schon zu hoeren sein.

TWR hat doch einen 500 kW Sender in Kirgistan in Betrieb genommen, um
damit in den moslemischen Staaten wie Iran, Afghanistan und Pakistan so
richtig schoen zuendeln zu koennen. So richtig schoen Benzin ins Feuer
giessen.

Vergiss 150 kW, das auf 1287 kHz ist mit Sicherheit die brandneue 500 kW
Anlage. Uebrigens meine ich, nach dem unverkennbaren TWR-Pausenzeichen
eine ID als "Radio Diamant" vernommen zu haben.

PAKISTAN   11600 kHz, Radio Pakistan Islamabad, on Oct 28 at 1215-1231 UT,
34433, Chinese, Pakistan music, // 15730 kHz.
(Kouji Hashimoto-JPN, dxld Oct 30)

Radio Pakistan external service in Urdu observed in progress (via Global
Tuners remote rx in Germany) on 15800 kHz at 0845 UT on 29 October, with a
very weak 11580 kHz in parallel. It was untraced on either frequency at
0830 UT sign-on time. Signal on 15800 kHz was fair in strength, but
unlistenable due to atrocious modulation - it was only identifiable by
comparison with the online stream at
<radio.gov.pk>

Several references to "Sedayee Pakistan" [Voice of Pakistan] were noted,
which turned out to be the name of the programme. There was NO English
newscast at 0905 UT, only at 1100-1107 UT prior to the station signing off
with the national anthem at 1108 UT.

On 27 & 28 October I checked out the 1600 UT broadcast in English for
Europe listed in the B-13 schedule. Nil heard on 7510 kHz via several
Global Tuners remote receivers, nor was it streamed on the Radio Pakistan
website, so I doubt it exists. It would appear that the 1100 UT bulletin
is now the only English content aired by Radio Pakistan on shortwave.

Radio Pakistan's main domestic service is now the News and Current Affairs
Channel, and it identifies as such using the English phrase even within
Urdu programming. The "World Service", which was RP's term for their
Urdu/English service on shortwave, is now just part of their External
Service and identifies as such on air - again, the English phrase is used.
Defunct terms like National Broadcasting Service and World Service are
still found on the broadcaster's website, however they don't identify on
air as such.

During extensive monitoring over the past couple of weeks I noticed that
"The Typewriter" tune (composed by US composer Leroy Anderson), which used
to introduce some Radio Pakistan news bulletins, has now gone. For those
who need their memories jogging, here's a posh version:

Tatarstan Kazan Aussendungen in B-13 Saison.

Korrekt waere dieser Sendeplan:
04.10-05.00 11790 NVS (towards Siberia, Russian Far East)
06.10-07.00  9895 NVS (towards Ural / Tyumen area)
08.10-09.00 12095 ARM (towards West Russia/Moscow/St.Petersburg)

Ich sehe das Ganze unter dem technischen Aspekt:

Auch eine Aussendung aus Armavir hoert nicht in West Russland auf, wird
jeweils rechts und links 30 Grad von der Hauptkeule in Norwegen, Island
und evtl. Groenland, Nova Scotia gehoert ....

Dagegen scheint das NVS Signal garnicht Moskau zu erreichen, sondern ist
Richtung Westen im Ural zentriert, und in Richtung Osten im Raum Irkutsk.
Daher wohl der Einsatz von Krasnodar Armavir.

Bei genauerem Studium der Strahl-Zentrierungen entsprechen die jetzigen
Ziele aus NVS/ARM tatsaechlich noch verblueffend exakt den in den 90ern
fuer die Samara-RUS Programmbloecke angesagten.

Digital broadcasting in Russia.

Ministry of Communications gave up the idea introduction of digital
broadcasting in Russia in the near future. This was announced at the
International Congress of Russian-language broadcasters Deputy Minister of
Communications and Mass Media Alexei Volin.

He noted that "despite all the obvious advantages of moving to digital -
new and tremendous additional opportunities to deliver information to the
listener, and the ability to expand the number of radio stations - we have
decided to Russia until the move to digital."

Wolin explained that " this is due to the fact that the world is not yet
an established format for digital radio because that was originally
developed, it was decided only in India and so far in any other
countries."

"But the main thing for us - it is economic criteria. And when we all
figured out, come to the conclusion that the Russian market is not ready
for the transition to digital broadcasting," - said the deputy minister.
According to him, "that the amount of radio advertising market, which
today is in Russia, does not allow to feed the growing number of radio
stations than there are today, so the transition to digital and
precipitous increase in the number of radio stations will lead to the
death of the market." "In this regard, while in Russia in the immediate
plans of the transition to digital broadcasting, we decided to give up," -
said Wolin.

RUSSIA   Radio Rossii Moscow. 250 kW, azimuth: 267 degrees towards Russian
nationals in central Europe.

(via www.dxing.ru via RUSdx Nov 3)

Radio Rossii replaced its traditional frequency 9840 kHz at 6095 kHz in
0400-0700 UT. So in the morning they should be heard without starting
failures in passing. The rest of the winter frequency seems to be
unchanged.
(Alexander Egorov-UKR, "deneb-radio-dx" & "open_dx, RUSdx Oct 27)

Transfer to 171 kHz (Krasnodar Armavir Tbilliskaya) disagree with the
schedule of Voice of Russia, as for example between 1200 and 1500 UT
transmitted news Voice of Russia in Russian every half hour, and in the
rest of the time is RCC / Radio Channel Caucasus / in Russian and other
languages.

And after the 27th October 2013 were marked by programs of Radio Rossii,
except for 6095 / 5905 kHz, but also at 5930, 6160, 567, 945 / European
program; 6085, 6100 and 6195 West Siberia; / and 7230 Eastern Siberian;
and on reports from the U.S. and the Far East on 5930, 5940, and 7320 kHz.

SOLOMON ISLANDS   Many thanks to David Ricquish of the Radio Heritage
Foundation for this tip. David writes:
"Solomon Islands Broadcasting has reactivated its daytime shortwave
transmitter on 9545 kHz from 2000 to 0500 UT daily for those who like to
chase rare shortwave radio stations.

"Indeed, this will be challenging DX for much of the world. I imagine the
maximum output power will "only" be 10 kilowatts or so - enough power to
cover the Solomon Islands, but not enough for reliable global coverage.
Still, this is the type of DX station I love to chase.

Good, but what co-channel QRM will it confront? RNZ on behalf of SIBC duly

WOF - Woofferton shortwave transmitting site - 70th anniversary Audio
Recordings & more. From David Porter - WOF 70th Anniversary.

Pleased to report that Mart has got together the audio recordings made by
the local BBC station BBC Radio Shropshire. These were taken by BBC
Hereford and Worcester as well. Mart has some more video coming from a
presentation that was running on the day.

There were about 90 invited guests from Babcock, BBC and WOF staff
including two who started there in 1943 Bob Painter, G3BPF aged 89 and
Gerry Griffiths, 86 who retired in 1984. The others were those who had
worked there since the last 60th celebration and were retired or still
working there.

"I have finally located the interviews. Apologies if the quality isn't
great I will try and get a better copy. They broadcast two interviews at
separate times between 8am & 9am on 17th October.

U.K./UAE/VATICAN STATE  [SUDAN non]   15535  on Nov 4 at 1457 UT, S9+20
open carrier with hi-pitched tone; 1459:10 UT Arabic sign-on of Radio
Tamazuj. Site on this service designated only PNW in HFCC is SMG VATICAN,
250 kW, 150 degrees, so nicely off the back for us, to be followed by
Radio Dabanga at 1530-1630 UT.

BTW, these stations may gain some listeners, as the Sudan Radio Service
ran out of funding and closed down Oct 31, as found on their website by
Alan Roe:

<http://www.sudanradio.org/index.php/using-joomla/extensions/modules/content-modules/6341-srs-ends-broadcasts-today>

"The Sudan Radio Service's last broadcast goes out today at 7:30 PM. The
current Sudan Radio Service started out as the Darfur News and Information
Service (DNIS). Its first broadcast was in January 2009. Over the years,
the demand for fair and balanced programming in Sudan grew and in
September 2012, under funding from the U.S Department of State's Bureau of
Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, the service expanded to other regions
of Sudan. Its name changed to Sudan Radio Service.

However, avenues for securing further funding for sustaining the service
have diminished. As a result, the Sudan Radio Service will cease operating
from October 31, 2013.

"We express our gratitude to our funders and our listeners for giving us
the energy to offer the kind of programming at the Sudan Radio Service. It
has been a great run," says Deputy Chief of Party Brian Adeba."

[SUDAN non]   Sudan Radio Service eingestellt.
Mitteilung zur Einstellung des Sudan Radio Service.

Der Sudan Radio Service hat seine Sendungen am 31. Oktober eingestellt.
Zur Begruendung hiess es, die Moeglichkeiten zur Finanzierung der
Programme seien weitgehend verschwunden.

Beim Sudan Radio Service handelte es sich um ein Projekt der US-
amerikanischen Entwicklungshilfe, das von Nairobi aus operierte und mit
Unterbrechungen sowie zwischenzeitlichen Umbenennungen seit 2003 sendete;
zuletzt im Umfang von jeweils anderthalb Stunden am Morgen und Abend.

Als technischer Dienstleister beauftragt war dabei der privatisierte
Senderbetrieb des BBC World Service. Neben Sendeanlagen in England und Abu
Dhabi nutzte er fuer den Sudan Radio Service zeitweise auch die inzwischen
abgerissene Sendestation der Deutschen Welle in Portugal.

Die speziell fuer den Sudan bestimmten Sendungen des offiziellen US-
Auslandsfunks in Washington bzw. dessen Vorort Springfield bleiben vom
"Aus" dieses Entwicklungshilfeprojektes unberuehrt. Auch der BBC World
Service und die niederlaendische Organisation Free Press Unlimited (mit
Finanzierung des Aussenministeriums, faktisch an Stelle des zu grossen
Teilen abgewickelten Radio Nederland Wereldomroep) senden weiterhin in
groesserem Umfang fuer den Sudan.

SRS Ends Broadcasts.
The current Sudan Radio Service started out as the Darfur News and
Information Service (DNIS). Its first broadcast was in January 2009. Over
the years, the demand for fair and balanced programming in Sudan grew and
in September 2012, under funding from the U.S Department of State's Bureau
of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, the service expanded to other
regions of Sudan. Its name changed to Sudan Radio Service. However,
avenues for securing further funding for sustaining the service have
diminished. As a result, the Sudan Radio Service will cease operating from
October 31, 2013. "We express our gratitude to our funders and our
listeners for giving us the energy to offer the kind of programming at the
Sudan Radio Service. It has been a great run," says Deputy Chief of Party
Brian Adeba.

USA   9930  on Nov 6 at 0030 UT, WTWW-2 is still on here instead of 5085;
9479 kHz, Nov 6 at 0030 UT, WTWW-1 is still on here instead of 5830 kHz.
Both have shifted to 5 MHz after 0100 UT. George McClintock tells me that
within a few days, the night changeover time will be 0000 UT for both (and
the wtww.us website already shows this, along with morning QSYs at 1400).
Then at 1333 Nov 6, 5085 kHz is on, but both 5830 and 9479 kHz are off.
Furthermore, 9479 kHz will be standardized by Nov 8 to 9475 kHz, on
request of VOA to avoid interference to 9480 kHz. I see in Aoki (not HFCC,
of course) that 9475 kHz is also in use by R. Australia from 1100 to 1900
UT, but I think it`s toward Asia, never much signal here.

3215  on Nov 6 at 0037 UT, WWRB has Dave in a rant again, making mocking
voices, about 99% of Christians being lip-service full of crap, and 1%
true Christians: prove which you are by calling 931-728-6087 and booking
airtime on WWRB. Then 0039 UT dead air for at least a minute as maybe he`s
answering the phone or cooling off.

15550-USB, on Nov 6 at 1406 UT, "Rock of Ages" theme on keyboard/banjo,
and WJHR signing on; 1409 UT pause and bring up gospel huxter introducing
his tape #4, that there is "no evidence whatsoever for evolution",
apparently aimed at kids but also connecting this with the New World
Order; choppy modulation. Now we know how really wacko this mono-huxter
station is. Clock may be 6 minutes slow as previous sign-off was well
after 2200 UT.

USA   WRMI takes over WYFR Facility in Florida, USA.

News Release - Boletín de Prensa, Nov. 6, 2013

WYFR Facility to Return to Shortwave as WRMI.

Legendary shortwave station WYFR in Okeechobee, Florida, which ceased
transmissions on June 30, 2013, will resume broadcasting in December as a
result of an agreement between Family Stations, Inc, and Radio Miami
International, Inc.

According to the agreement, Family Radio will sell the WYFR facility to
Radio Miami International. Family Radio programming for the Caribbean and
South America will return to shortwave via the Okeechobee site, and Radio
Miami's programming currently aired on WRMI in Miami will switch over to
the Okeechobee facility. The station will also carry programs for other
international broadcasters, including Pan American Broadcasting's Radio
Africa network. A target date of December 1, 2013 has been set for the
resumption of broadcasts. The current WRMI transmission site in Miami will
be closed, and the WRMI call letters will be transferred to Okeechobee.

"We are very grateful to Family Radio for entrusting us with this
magnificent station," said Jeff White, WRMI General Manager. "WYFR is an
important part of the heritage of shortwave broadcasting, and we are very
happy that it will continue to serve shortwave listeners around the
world." The station first went on the air from Okeechobee in 1977,
although the origins of the station and its predecessors go back to 1927.
WYFR/WRMI is the largest shortwave station in the United States in number
of transmitters and antennas. The facility is comprised of 13 transmitters
-- twelve 100-kilowatt and one 50-kilowatt -- and 23 antennas beamed to
all of the Americas, Europe and Africa.

White, who is also Secretary-Treasurer of the National Association of
Shortwave Broadcasters (NASB), said that "many people made this transition
a reality, not the least of whom was our former Secretary-Treasurer and
current board member, Dan Elyea, who had been the WYFR Station Manager
from the time it was built in the late 1970's until his recent retirement.
Dan presented us to Family Radio Vice President Tom Evans. Tom and the
Family Radio Board have given us their confidence, and we will do our best
to keep this station going for many years to come."

WYFR Regresará a la Onda Corta como WRMI.

La emisora legendaria de onda corta WYFR en Okeechobee, Florida que cesó
sus transmisiones el 30 de junio de 2013 transmitirá de nuevo como
resultado de un acuerdo entre Family Stations, Inc. y Radio Miami
International, Inc.

Según el acuerdo, Family Radio venderá la planta de WYFR a Radio Miami
International. La programación de Family Radio para el Caribe y Sudamérica
regresará a la onda corta via el sitio de Okeechobee, y la programación de
Radio Miami que actualmente se transmite vía WRMI en Miami se trasladará a
la facilidad de Okeechobee. La emisora transmitirá también programas para
otras radiodifusoras internacionales, incluyendo la cadena Radio Africa de
Pan American Broadcasting. La fecha del 1 de diciembre de 2013 ha sido
fijada para el reinicio de transmisiones. La planta actual de WRMI en
Miami será cerrada, y las siglas de WRMI serán transferidas a Okeechobee.

"Somos muy agradecidos a Family Radio por encargarnos de esta emisora
magnífica," dijo Jeff White, Gerente General de WRMI. "WYFR es una parte
importante del patrimonio de la radio de onda corta, y estamos muy
contentos que seguirá sirviendo a los oyentes de onda corta alrededor del
mundo." La emisora salió al aire de Okeechobee en 1977, aunque los
orígenes de la estación y sus predecesores provienen de 1927. WYFR/WRMI es
la emisora de onda corta mas grande de los EEUU en cuanto al número de
transmisores y antenas. La facilidad está compuesta de 13 transmisores --
12 de 100 kilovatios y uno de 50 kilovatios -- y 23 antenas dirigidas a
todas las Américas, Europa y Africa.

White, quien también se desempeña como Secretario-Tesorero de la
Asociación Nacional de Radiodifusoras de Onda Corta (NASB), dijo que
"muchas personas han hecho esta transición una realidad, especialmente
nuestro ex-Secretario-Tesorero Dan Elyea, quien fue el gerente de la
planta de WYFR desde que fue construída al final de los años 70 hasta su
reciente retiro. Dan nos presentó al Vice Presidente de Family Radio, Tom
Evans. Tom y la junta directiva de Family Radio nos han dado su confianza,
y haremos todo lo posible para mantener esta emisora funcionando por
muchos años mas."

Special "Wavescan" QSLs for WYFR-WRMI change.

International news media are carrying the news regarding the transfer of
WYFR, the large shortwave station in lower central Florida, to WRMI Radio
Miami International in Miami in the United States, at the end of this
month. Due to this remarkable radio development, the international DX
program, "Wavescan", will interrupt the flow of its regular programming to
honor the occasion. The final broadcasts of "Wavescan" over WRMI Miami
will be on the air during the last complete week in the month of November,
and during the first complete week in December, "Wavescan" will be aired
for the first occasion over the large new WRMI which is located a little
north of Lake Okeechobee in lower central Florida.

The DX program, "Wavescan" is written in Indianapolis by Dr. Adrian
Peterson, DX editor for Adventist World Radio, and it has been produced
over the past several years by Jeff White at WRMI Radio Miami
International in Miami. This program is on the air from WRMI in Florida,
KSDA on the island of Guam, and seasonally by several of the shortwave
relay stations in the AWR network, and also over WWCR and WINB in the
United States.

All reception reports to "Wavescan" for the last week in November will be
QSLed with a special "Last Week" endorsement for WRMI Miami, and all
reception reports to "Wavescan" during the first week in December will be
QSLed with a "First Week" endorsement for the new WRMI at Okeechobee.
These special endorsements will be applied to all QSL cards issued for
these special editions of "Wavescan" as heard on any of these stations
that carry the program, though, where possible direct broadcast from the
old and the new WRMI would also be appreciated. "Wavescan" may also be
heard via numerous electronic deliveries, including station websites and
iPod deliveries.

Listeners are encouraged to send their reception reports for these
broadcasts to the Wavescan address in Indianapolis with address label and
return postage, and also to the station that is carrying the programming,
and also to the address for the new WRMI. The last edition of "Wavescan"
via the old WRMI will be a special tribute to this station, and the first
broadcast from the new WRMI will honor this new development.
