(Dan Ferguson-USA  K4VOA, DXplorer June 4)

For getting things right, I've asked the DRM-people regarding "their
broadcast" during the Jakarta conference. The answer is: It will all be in
AM.
(Harald Kuhl-D, DXplorer June 3)

Tuned in at 0200 UT tonight June 5 to just barely able to copy Radio
Australia mentioning, "Special broadcast". Can't really make anything else
out, though. All on 21840 kHz. 100 kW listed at 329 degrees. Poor
reception on 21840 kHz at 02:00 UT June 5. Nothing on 15650 kHz so far at
0233 UT.

[later]  At 0600 UT, fair to good reception from FEBC, Philippines.
FEBC IS, followed by ID and special program. Reasonably easy to follow.
Nothing heard before the TOH from Sri Lanka.
(Walt Salmaniw-BC-CAN, DXplorer June 5)

re: Presentation for Jakarta conference.
21480  Noted at 0158 UT the Interval Signal for "Waltzing Matilda" and
then sign-on at 0200 UT with a ID for Radio Australia, mention of the
21480 kHz frequency in use for this special broadcast, then into talks
with mention of over 5000 people effected by Global Disasters, and of
International organizations (at 02:03 hrs.) Also noted reference to
international Broadcasters and how signals where being used for relief at
02:06 hrs. The signal was marginal to poor and by 02:09 hrs. the signal
was bits of sudio. Surprizing that this frequency remained open for this
hour. Checked 15560 kHz and nothing not even a carrier.
(Edward Kusalik-Alb-CAN  VE6EFK, DXplorer June 5)

re 21840 Shepparton just audible.
BBC's same program scheduled from Nakhon Sawan on 15650 kHz at *0230 UT.
Heard here good and clear with some recorded interviews on disaster and
the role of communication, radio in emergency. Previous txn from
Shepparton heard same as Walt's report previously.
(Tony Ashar-INS, DXplorer June 5)

0530-0600 UT 15650 Trincomalee Sri Lanka SLBC.
Checked this outlet in remote units in southern Germany, SWE, SUI, POL,
RUS, JPN, CAN, USA all outlets just on threshold, only just barely able to
copy any details, heard English talking by male and female, but couldn't
tell any details.

Best heard in Moscow Russia on VERY ODD FREQUENCY from Trincomalee Sri
Lanka site on
15649.874 kHz mostly S=4 or -104.4 dBm level. I guess on 75 degrees, plus
some few degrees slewed azimuth.

[later]  0600-0700 15650 Bocaue Philippines First Response Radio,
via FEBC Manila.

15650  Even frequency from Bocaue, nil signal in Europe and Moscow Russia.
Just S=2 on threshold level in southern Germany, but just barely able to
copy any details.

Instead
S=6 or -92dBm well heard in Edmonton Alberta-CAN unit.

S=8 or -74dBm on Vancouver Island remote SDR post. At 0626 UT heard song
"... stay together ..." in Vernacular by local native folks.

S=6 or -89dBm level on remote unit in Queensland Australia.
S=9+10dB or -68dBm strength in Nara JPN, S=8 or -80dBm in Tokyo JPN at
0638 UT.

And downunder in Queensland AUS at 0640 UT: S=6 or -88dBm strength level,
not bad. Undoubtedly some interview to Japanese language people could be
identified.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 5)

15650 - {rather odd 15649.874 kHz, wb.}
Trincomalee at S3 but only fair readibility with moderate noise lvl from
Perseus site in Sydney - I could tell a man and woman were alternating
(in English) and discussing emergency preparedness and disaster response
issues but hard to discern actual topics. I assume topics were relevant to
Sri Lanka but could not tell for sure.

15650.0  From the same Sydney site the FEBC First Response Radio carrier
came on at 0558 UT about 130 Hertz higher than Trincomalee and started
it's IS at 0600. ID's for First Response Radio and FEBC and then into the
test bcst by man and woman ancrs (English). This signal looked about the
same strength as Trincomalee on the spectrum display but the readibility
was much better than the Sri Lanka site. From FEBC the disaster topics
centered on the Philippines (recent Typhoons) and Japan (earthquake).
Several audio segments in Japanese and Tagalog/English from actual bcsts
during the disasters in those countries.

At 0625 UT I switched to my home site in Southern CA and FEBC on 15650 kHz
was hrd better than from Sydney at S4 and very clear audio with much less
noise.
(Bruce W. Churchill-CA-USA, DXplorer June 5)

Could be that the Sydney SDR site was as good as it got for Trincomalee;
theoretically the Brisbane site should have been better but that site was
busy so couldn't check. Good signal presentation on the rcvr display but
not good audio quality and accompanied by higher noise lvls.

The FEBC xmtr had a better "punch" on their bcst. I could not see a
Trincomalee signal on my home site. Around 0520 UT tune in I could see a
weak signal from BBC Thailand on 15650 kHz and threshold audio.
(Bruce W. Churchill-CA-USA, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 5)

Hi dear Bruce in deep US night,
yes the remote unit at Brisbane has always better and cleaner signal, less
man made noise, compared to a litte bit suffering signal at Sydney, with
few local electricity noise and a less performing antenna connection.

Best less noise signal ratio EVER had Victor 4S7VK installation near
Colombo Ceylon island at -136dBm some 5 years ago, when he started Perseus
net given to the hobby community worldwide in that era.

Read my Disaster Radio action log - I put on DXplorer, dxld newsgroups
etc.

It's a pity, that remote units by Victor in 4S7 and Uwe at eastern
Thailand remote units were not on SDR network, I guess due of local
thunderstorm bad weather they switched off their units today. - I saw the
SouthAS and SoEaAS weather report on BBC TV yesterday night.

[later]  0730-0800 21840 Talata Volonondry Madagascar MGLOG Madagascar
250kW at 85degr.

21840  Signal noted in downunder Australia remote site,
fair S=7 signal or -84dBm around 0732 UT June 5th.

Poor S=5 or -90dBm signal strength observed in Nara and Tokyo JPN posts.

Very tiny poor also in Vancouver Isl. and Alberta CAN remote SDR unit
posts at 0743 UT.

At 0745 UT heard an example of "local Myanmar Radio weather report on
Tsunami disaster happen ...".

Best reception here in very southern Europe post on Sicily island remote
unit in Italy. S=8 or -76dBm fair signal. But nothing heard in northern
Europe, even tiny S=4 or -106dBm here in southern Germany. And in the
'middle between' S=6 or -92dBm in Switzerland and Moscow area too.

"New rule of radio on disaster ... Community radio, weather reports ..."
at 0752 UT, "Let's end Radio Emergency ..." followed by "come together"
song/music example at 0755 UT.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 5)

Well now on 15650 kHz at 0825 UT is a program that sounds like RFE/Radio
Liberty in a Slavik language - this from the Udorn site in Thailand? - but
at 0830 UT seemed to revert to the First response Radio from Palau site.
(Bruce W. Churchill-CA-USA, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 5)

re {non}  0800-0830 15650 Ban Dung, Udorn Thani Prov. Thailand IBB 250 156

Yes, I guess the US-IBB Ban Dung staff put the wrong satellite feed on
air. RL/RFE Belorussian service signal was weak even here in Moscow
Russia, so I guess, signal came really from Thailand relay site.

At 0830 UT rather clean audio of Palau came on air instead ?

[later]  0830-0900 15650 Medorn Palau NHK 270degr
15650  Even frequency from Medorn Palau, nice audio quality signal, at S=9
or -74dBm signal noted in Nara JPN at 0830 UT. At 0835 UT resident's
interview in English and from Japanese language translation.

Also S=9 or -73dBm signal in northern Tokyo area, interview about life and
school visit these days in temporary houses after the Tsunami disaster.

S=8-9 or -78dBm strength in Vancouver Isl.
S=7   or -87dBm signal in Alberta-CAN at 0841 UT.

Nil signal - nothing in all European remote units, at 0845 UT.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 5)

15650 disaster test bcst from Palau (NHK-sponsored leased time) hrd in
Southern CA from 0832 UT in English, but switching to Indonesian at 0845
UT. From 0855 UT the IBB xmtr at Tinang PI started testing with carrier
and intermittent modulated tone on this channel. This impacted the Palau
signal but not fatally.

At 0900 UT Tinang-PHL started the disaster test bcst in English with no
station ID - program was similar to that hrd from FEBC Manila at Bocaue.
SINPO from Tinang-PHL was 45444, the best hrd of all bcsts.

From SDR site in Sydney did not hear sched Ban Dung (Udorn Thani) Thailand
bcst 0800-0830 UT but at 0825 UT tune there was a seemingly RFE/RL bcst in
Russian (normally this svc uses Ban Dung at times). This may have been
part of the test series but could not tell from the programming hrd.
(Bruce W. Churchill-CA-USA, DXplorer June 5)

[later]  0900-0930 15650 Tinang Philippines IBB 250 200

15650  Signal probably from Tinang PHL heard at 0900 UT,
underneath some 50 / 100 Hertz BUZZ audio. Even frequency.

Reception downunder in Sydney AUS was just on very tiny threshold level,
very noisy signal from antenna at this RX site. S=4-5 -94dBm.
Same signal on Brisbane site at 0915 UT.

Much better on backlobe of Tinang signal at Japan area net posts:
S=9+20dB or -56dBm at Nara JPN with cleaner powerful signal,

also in northern Tokyo JPN area post at S=9+5dB or -70dBm at 0901 UT,
bcast re-play of a bad distorted audio file of AIR India example to
explain shortwave bands to the wider crowd at 0905 UT June 5.

NIL reception, - not even a tiny string visible on SDR browser windows
here in Europe and Moscow Russia.

15650 Tinang PHL bcast "come together..." song ended at 0929 UT,
TX switch off at 09.30:13 UT on June 5th.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 5)

[later]  0930-1000 21840 Talata Volonondry Madagascar MGLOG Madagascar 250
85
alternate time for 0730-0800 UT bcast.
[MADAGASCAR  not ! ]  21840  Not on air at reserve time slot at 0930 UT.

[later]  1000-1030 15650 Bangalore India AIR 500 120

15650   International Radio for Disaster Relief bcast via Bangalore
AIR India bcast center on probably 132degr azimuth - towards Indonesia,
noted at best signal level around 1002 UT on June 5 with S=8 signal in
downunder Brisbane Queensland site.

Rather much weaker signals noted at Tokyo JPN
S=5-6 or -94dBm,
S=4-5 or -98dBm in Vancouver Isl,
S=3-4 or -102dBm weak and tiny on threshold level at Alberta-CAN, Moscow
Russia, and Italy remote units.

A little stronger here in Germany on backlobe signal S=6 or -90dBm in
southern Germany.

[later]  1030-1100 UT 21840 kHz Beijing China CRI.

21840  International Radio for Disaster Relief bcast
- totally in Mandarin Chinese language - started at 1030 UT.

Best signal heard so far in Alberta CAN site S=6 -94dBm signal.

S=8 -76dBm bcast from China noted in northern Tokyo area part,
as well as at Nagoya remote receiving post.

Weak on threshold noise level S=4 or -94dBm in Moscow Russia.
A lot weaker all over remaining European unit places.

Beijing center site towards Jakarta Indonesia likely at 193degr azimuth.

But is most likely "very questionable!" that this special bcast originate
from this given CRI/CNR site at Beijing area.

R Peking has been never bcasting REGULARLY on 21 MHz band in past 50
years,

except erected some new transmitting centers {and 13mb arrays} in past
decade, and bcasted Firedrake or CNR program repeat via the various
jamming stations on 21 MHz since then, against U.S. VOA / RFA etc.
services on this 13 meterband.

China's jamming bcast centers in use are Urumchi, Kashgar, Xinjiezhen
Baoji, Shijiazhuang Pingshan Hebei, Xingyang, Qiqihar Heilongjiang,
and Hainan Island.

[later]  1100-1130 UT 15650 kHz Merizo Guam KTWR Agana.
15650.009  IRDR bcast via KTWR Guam site, very weak "NIL" under threshold
in all European remote SDR units, but in southern Germany and Switzerland
units very tiny S=4 or -104dBm at 1115 UT.

S=5-6 or -96dBm a bit better signal in Alberta and Vancouver-CAN at 1118
UT.

An "...animal boddy? disease ..." report at 1121 UT, heard in Nagoya JPN
at S=9+10dB or -61dBm signal strength.

KTWR Agana's interval signal observed around 1127 UT.

Followed by switch to one of the Mandarin services of KTWR?
of 9910 or 12120 kHz channels - at this time slot.
Time pip given at 1130 UT, and sudden TX off immediately.

Yes we covered this before. The short mast you show looks like a STL to
me, with UHF Yagi. I have this site (below) as:

Caged dipoles are seen with streetview.
Perhaps separate MW & SW sites (which is not common) or different
stations?

BRAZIL   6180.007 is the fundamental RNB/RNA Brasilia signal,
at 0130 UT on May 28 on S=9+20dB or -45dBm level.

But also heard here the spurious{sic} outlet on 5999.591 kHz at 0133 UT
at S=4-5 or -106dBm level.

And latter could only be heard with thin 1.6 kHz selected bandwidth on
lower side of adjacent RHC 6000 kHz. Arnie Coro started at 0138 UT to
0148 UT here on S=9+25dB or-46dBm powerful outlet. "... very low solar
flux activity ...".

RNB/RNA Brasilia also heard on
// 11780.003 kHz at 0154 UT much fluttery S=9+20dB or -58dBm.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews - hcdx May 28)

5999.6  is not spurious from 6180 kHz, but a separate transmitter,
originally supposedly for DRM testing. This was all discussed in
March/April when it was first being heard. It's on again tonight hetting
RHC. Glenn
(Glenn Hauser  <wghauser@yahoo.com>  May 28)

5999.6, on May 27 at 0116 UT, Radio Nacional Brasilia/Amazonia is
reactivated here after several weeks, made obvious by the absence of RHC
English! M&W laughing, music // much stronger 6180 and 11780 kHz. If RHC
were on, there would be a 400 Hz het, which in fact I do hear at 0623 UT
check when "Ed Newman" misasserts that it's "24 minutes past the hour".

Last time 5999.6 kHz was reported: April 11 as in dxld 2014-#16.
6060, another RHC English frequency, as usual also has a het from Brasil,
lower pitched than the one below 6000 kHz, May 27 at 0624 UT.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld May 27)

BRAZIL   5999.591  Nach mehrwoechiger Abwesenheit ist Radio Nacional
Brasilia / Amazonia zusaetzlich zu den Stammwellen 6180 und 11780 kHz auch
wieder auf 6000 ("5999.6 kHz") kHz zu hoeren. Der hier eingesetzte Sender
soll spaeter fuer digitale Testsendungen eingesetzt werden.

Hallo Hansjoerg, nachdem mich Glenn Hauser darauf aufmerksam gemacht hat,
dass dieses Signal kein - von mir angenommenes - Spurious Signal von 6180
kHz darstellt, habe ich mir mal meine Gedanken gemacht. Wer hat denn diese
Geschichte mit den DRM Aussendungen auf 6000 kHz mitgeteilt?

Das 5999v Signal ist so schwach, von mir geschaetzte 5 bis 10 kW
hoechstens.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 2)

Aufgekommen ist das Thema wohl von hier:

Leistung. Zuvor sollte der Sender in regulaerer Amplitudenmodulation
getestet werden.

Mittelfristig soll die fruehere Frequenz 5990 kHz von Radio Senado
eingesetzt werden.

Danke, sehr schoene Daten, hast Du die drei JPG Bilder gesehen, da sieht
man sehr klar, wie weit man mit diesen drei sehr niedrigen Leistungen in
AM/DRM ausbreitungsmaessig kommt.

Ich nehme mal an, ich habe den 4 kW Sender in NY-USA, Alberta und
Vancouver-CAN remote Units gehoert, staerker war das Signal - von mir
angenommen nicht -, immer verglichen mit dem RNA 250 kW Schaetzchen auf
6180 kHz.

Die Aussendung auf 6000v war in AM. Weitere DRM Aussendungen fallen der
Community eher NICHT auf und werden nicht gemeldet, weil die Frequenz eh'
von La Habana zugedeckt ist, und ohne ausgepraegten Carrier Interference
Pfeifton das DRM Signal im Ausland nicht auffaellt.

Man muesste entweder in Brasilien oder Ecuador naeher dran sitzen, um ein
solch geringes DRM Signal wirklich zu bemerken, bzw. eher im Perseus
Windows-Fenster am PC als Signal-Block "zu sehen" !

Originate from Bulgarian SpaceLine provider site at Sofia Kostinbrod. Bad
buzzy like audio quality, on Perseus browser window some 9 buzz peaks
visible, on each side 100 Hertz apart like a garden fence. S=9+20dB or
-49dBm strength here in Germany. OM addresses given, also the master
told, that over 40 transmitters are in use during the whole daily
operation period.

And additional interference heard also, on adjacent 11598 kHz annoying

GERMANY   Eisschlaggefahr - NDR laesst Sendemast im Harz stutzen.
Keine Bisambergung, aber Sendemast Torfhaus wird gekuerzt.
Kuerzung des Sendemasts um ca. 50 Meter:
<http://bit.ly/1pqMkMB>

Und daraus folgend:
<http://bit.ly/1tWaX3v>

Torfhaus. Der hoechste Punkt in Niedersachsen wird an der Spitze gestutzt.
Der 279 Meter hohe NDR-Sendemast von Torfhaus im Harz soll um knapp
50 Meter gekuerzt werden. Grund sei die Eisschlaggefahr, die fuer
touristische Einrichtungen zum Problem werden koenne, sagte ein NDR-
Sprecher.

Im Winter koenne sich am Sendemast Eis bilden, das in Brocken
herunterfallen koennte. Je hoeher der Mast ist, desto groesser sei die
Streuung der Eisstuecke. Die Demontage soll voraussichtlich im Juni
erfolgen.

Anschliessend erhaelt der Sendemast zudem eine neue, beheizbare
Antennenspitze. Der Mast, der auf einem 821 Meter hohen Huegel bei
Torfhaus fusst, erreicht an seiner Spitze derzeit 1100 Meter ueber
Meereshoehe und ist damit der hoechstgelegene Punkt Niedersachsens.

Eine sehr ausfuehrliche Diskussion gibt es auch hier:
<http://radioforum.foren.mysnip.de/read.php?8773,1226755>

Hier der Blick vom Brocken auf den NDR-Mast links (wird gekuerzt)

<http://radioforum.foren.mysnip.de/file.php?8773,file=3172>

und den niedrigeren DTAG-Mast rechts. Es wird gemunkelt, das die Privaten
von dort dann auf den NDR-Mast umziehen ... evtl. DTAG-Mast gebisambergt
wird...

Vor 30 Jahren hatte der NDR (TV/Radio) auch ausserhalb seines
Versorgungsgebietes (im Osten) sehr hohe terrestrische Einschaltquoten.
Das hat sich nun eruebrigt. "Notfalls" geht ja noch Satellit oder
Internet, wer Norddeutsches hoeren/sehen will.

Reporter ohne Grenzen wuerdigt PETER JOHN JABAN, der bei Radio Free
Malaysia den on-air-Namen Papa Orang Utan verwendet hat. Radio Free
Sarawak sendet seit 2010 mit Unterstuetzung einer Schweizer Stiftung fuer
den gleichnamigen Landesteil Malaysias auf Borneo. Das Projekt wurde
seinerzeit von Clare Rewcastle Brown angeschoben, die bis zu ihrem achten
Lebensjahr in Sarawak lebte und bei ihrem ersten Besuch 38 Jahre ihre
Kindheit abgeholzt fand.

Seither ist die Familie von Taib Mahmud, mehr als 30 Jahre Chiefminister
von Sarawak und mittlerweile vielleicht reicher als der Sultan des
benachbarten Brunei, ihr Spezialgebiet. Bei investigativer Recherche traf
die Schwaegerin des frueheren Premierministers Gordon Brown, die ab 1983
fuer den BBC World Service gearbeitet hat, 2008 Peter John Jaban. Dieser
war beim Regierungsrundfunk gefeuert worden, nachdem einige
regierungskritische Hoereranrufe auf den Sender gegangen waren.

2010 kam Peter John Jaban nach London, um als Papa Orang Utan die Stimme
von Radio Free Sarawak zu werden. Aus Furcht vor Repressalien gegen
Freunde und Verwandte in Sarawak liess man die Urheberschaft der Sendungen
im Dunklen. Nach Todesdrohungen und einem mysterioesen Todesfall wurden
Produktionsort und die Identitaet zweier Mitarbeiter veroeffentlicht.

Peter John Jaban damals. "Ich vermisse meine vier Kinder, ich vermisse
mein Zuhause, aber ich bin bereit, fuer unsere Sache zu sterben. Zu
Lebzeiten meines Grossvaters musste man als Beweis der Maennlichkeit ein
paar Koepfe vorweisen, bevor man heiraten konnte. Die Zeiten haben sich
geaendert, aber es ist immer noch eine Zeit, in der man seine Tapferkeit
beweisen kann." Seit 2012 lebt Papa Orang Utan wieder in Sarawak. Jetzt
erklaerte er: "Ich weiss die Auszeichnung zu schaetzen, nicht zuletzt
hilft sie mir, wenn ich doch festgesetzt werde."

At least this version gives the frequency, 1260, but fails to mention that
US AID paid for it, as in the AAP story below; tnx a lot, Pakis! And what
does "digitized" really mean? Even with 400 kW, their audience will
plummet to near zero if it's really in DRM only. I suspect "digital" is
only a buzzword, for a modern transmitter's internal workings, and
possibly DRM *capable*, but it better be transmitting in analog AM.

Pakistan state radio inaugurates powerful transmitter in Peshawar.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor Sardar Mahtab Ahmad Khan formally launched the
newly-installed, 400-kW digitized transmitter of Pakistan Broadcasting
Corporation at its Peshawar station on Monday evening [26 May] enabling it
to spread its broadcasts to wider range of people. The project completed
at a cost of 442m rupees with the support of USAID.

Mohtrama Sameena Parvez, director-general and other senior officials of
PBC also attended the ceremony besides a large number of representative
figures from cross section of the society especially the writers, artists
and officials of the Peshawar radio station. Speaking on the occasion, the
governor while stressing on the importance of the broadcast of the PBC
said, "it [is] indeed a big gift from the donors and we must be thankful
to them". Though, he added, television telecasts and latest innovations in
the field of information technology based communication systems have been
overwhelmingly taking place on vast level, yet, the broadcasts of radio
are also enjoying attractions amongst their fans and listeners in a bigger
way.

The governor while referring to the prevailing situation in the province
and FATA especially referred to importance of brining normalization in
society and said that repatriation of displaced citizens at their home
places is a big challenge which demands collective role of the society as
a whole to fulfil this responsibility of great importance. Apart from
this, the governor said, keeping in view the crisis ridden circumstances
through which this entire region has gone through and still the situation
bears challenges on different counts, there is also the need to make more
hectic efforts to building our national image; prove ourselves a graceful
nation and develop the capability amongst our people in making all this
possible.

"We need to make correct presentation of the face of our nation and the
people through media; especially those with a capability of spreading
their broadcasts and telecasts to a wider range of people which indeed can
contribute more effectively in making all this possible", he said. While
pointing towards, Mohtrama Sameena Parvez, the governor said, being
director-general of this most prestigious institution; having largest
network in the country, she needed to run this institution professionally;
effectively and efficiently. We as nation, he remarked, have been
rendering unmatchable sacrifices for stability and security of our
motherland and there is also the need that the people realized about the
great sacrifices which the people of FATA in particular have been
rendering for quite some time.

Earlier, Mohtrama Sameena Parvez while welcoming the governor said,
Peshawar station of PBC bears unique history of having been gifted by its
creator "Markoni" himself to great educationist, Sir Sahibzada Abdul
Qayyum at his request.

Apart from this, she said, the PBC DIKhan Station is also being further
developed and modernized, besides development of many studios in other
parts of the country. The launching ceremony was followed by a colourful
peace cultural show and a mobile theatre drama "Armaan" organized by Kadam
Pa Padam, a project of the USAID.

RUSSIA   Der russische Sicherheitsrat hat am 19. Mai eine Initiative zur
Sicherstellung einer AM-Grundversorgung in russischer Sprache sowohl in
der russischen Foederation als auch im Ausland gestartet. Seit 2013 ist
das Radioprogramm Mayak nicht mehr flaechendeckend auf seinen klassischen
Wellen zu empfangen, seit 2014 Radio Rossii. Die Stimme Russlands gibt es
nicht mehr.

Wie verlautet soll womoeglich beim Verteidigungsministerium ein
entsprechendes Budget eingerichtet werden. Das Militaer hatte sich bereits
zuvor gegen die Abschaltung gewendet, aber keine Finanzhoheit ueber die
Sender. Die Ukraine-Krise, bei der gleich drei grosse Mittelwellensender
fuer Sendungen in die Ukraine wieder/neu eingesetzt wurden, macht den
strategischen Nutzen einer "Begleitung" russischsprachiger Minderheiten im
benachbarten Ausland erkennbar. Die Frage ist, welche Infrastruktur fuer
eine eventuelle Wiederbelebung 2016 noch zur Verfuegung stehen wird.

U.K./ASCENSION ISLS   BAS June Christmas broadcast.

The British Antarctic Survey had a Christmas dinner broadcast via the BBC
on SW last year to its bases down there. The tradition is that Christmas
for the bases is 21 June, i.e. the longest of their 24-hour nights. Some
of you may have heard it in 2013.

I don't know if the broadcast is going to be an annual tradition from now
on, but there will be another one on 21 June this year. The BAS people in
England don't know the details yet; they should be hearing about this
soon.

I talked yesterday to the person most concerned with BAS publicity in
general. He quite likes the idea of spreading the word about this to DXers
and SWLs as soon as he knows what the schedule is. I suggested sending the
information to DX clubs with Web sites and good-sized followings, as a way
of maximising the publicity. I also said that I'd ask my expert friends
about what they think are the best clubs/sites for this purpose.

The ones that come to mind immediately are NASWA, DSWCI, New Zealand Radio
DX League and Benelux DX Club, but how about others that you think ought
to have the information at the same time so that the word gets out widely.
Suggestions, anyone and everyone?

USA/CUBA   Analyzing the updated June 1 WRMI graphic frequency schedule,
we find significant changes affecting WORLD OF RADIO. WOR airtimes have
not changed, but there is no longer a NW beam part of the time on 9955 kHz
the entire 24 hours are on the 160 degree beam, away from the rest of
North America. Previously, one WOR airing was during the 315-degree beam,
Wednesdays at 1315 UT. That and other times remain: Thu 0330, 1230, Tue
1100 UT.

9495, that curious extra frequency carrying WRMI programming, mostly DX
shows, at 00-01 UT, has been dropped. Officially labeled as a FSI (Family
Radio) channel, it's replaced by 5015 kHz, presumably still with WORLD OF
RADIO UT Sundays at 0030 uT, but usually the previous edition.

The major change is more and more WRMI airtime for Brother Scare get him
while the getting i$ good! I've added up all the 'C' blox (ugly olive-
green color-coded), and guess what, they total exactly 700 hours per week,
surely no coincidence 100 transmitter-hours per day, or on the average 4+
transmitters at once. But this does not include another 112 hours per week
of BS on the beautiful blue 9955 kHz RMI frequency itself (84 hours a week
12 hours per day), and via Radio Africa Network, 28 hpw 4 hpd for a grand
total of 812 hours per week via Okeechobee, or averaging almost 5
transmitters at once.

The major additions are 5950 and 11825 kHz which are with BS for 24 hours
a day each! Here's the condensed schedule

kHz UT xmtr-azimuth
 5015 05-22  3-160
 5950 00-24 14-181
 7570 01-11 11-315
 7730 22-02  1- 44
 9955 05-10 10-160
 9955 14-21 10-160
11565 22-06  9-151
11730 00-05  4-160
11825 00-24 12-315
15190 04-08  7- 87
15770 12-21  9- 44

The 5 MHz frequencies are for the Caribbean, where presumably they hold up
during the daytime at a certain close range. They are inaudible here, not
even a carrier, e.g. at 1946 UT June 2. (Nor is Cuba audible on 5025 kHz
or any 6 MHz frequency in the daytime.) BTW, all 14 transmitters are in
use at one time or another now except: 5 and 6. IIRC, #6 was the one out
of service, permanently?

The big sig toward us on 11825 kHz means a major clash with ChiCom CNR1
jamming and VOA Chinese via Philippines at 09-13 UT: we could still hear
that underneath WRMI at 1205 June 2. Also bothered is NHK Japanese only 10
kHz away on 11815 kHz. We'll no longer be able to hear the Holy Qur'an
music service from Riyadh on 11820 kHz  at 18-23 UT, nor probably without
QRM the Kazakh service of Iran on 11820 kHz at 0120-0220 UT.

Some good news is that WRMI has dropped 9690 kHz for the BS service,
reaudiblizing All India Radio GOS in English at 1330-1500 UT. I'm urging
Jeff not to resume 9690 in another season.

I guess Jeff White will not always happy with his 'radio war' coup to

Anyway make allowance for this 160degr southwards signal, which will be a
terrible mixture on simple performance receiver in the Carribean target.

9495 is NOT Family Radio at 00-01 UT, but "various RMI programs" as
before, and as I monitored June 5 with Viva Miami at 0030 UT, Acontecer
Venezolano at 0045 UT. No doubt partly in English. For reasons unknown
this block continues to be shown as FR/FSI on the WRMI grid schedules.

VANUATU   3945  R. Vanuatu, Port Vila. Believed to be this. Poor signal
during an early morning with high atmospheric noise making listening
almost impossible at 1945 UT. Persevered for 30 min until it faded (past
sunrise at 7:15am in Port Vila). Vastly different listening conditions
compared with my last logging of this station on March 21. Tried the //
7260 kHz, but there was too much RFA and Firedrake covering that freq.

VIETNAM   6020  VoV, Buon Ma Thuot, Dac Lac. The VoV network 4 programming
for minorities with charming Asian flute music at 1045 UT and anncts in
local languages. Weak signal and flattened by China's own Voice of
Minorities, a.k.a Ethnic Minority Radio at s/on 1057 UT in Korean on May
28. China also runs // 5975 kHz which is also a good signal.

DSWCI DBS-16 Review. This is a very well-done YouTube review of the DSWCI
Domestic Broadcasting Survey. Worth watching.
(Jerry Berg-MA-USA, DXplorer May 30)

DBS-16 Domestic Broadcasting Survey, dswci - YouTube REVIEW.

Published by the Danish Shortwave Club International, the Domestic
Broadcasting Survey is an invaluable resource focussing on domestic
shortwave broadcasters in the tropical and international shortwave bands.
This edition was published in April 2014, but due to a few interruptions
here at home, I was unable to review immediately.

However, I have now reviewed it at the Mount Evelyn DX Report and it's in
the form of a YouTube video.
