GREECE   Toxic Time Bomb at former Kavalla site

<http://www.thrakitoday.com/2014/04/20_5.html>

Eco-bomb ready to explode in Xanthi - 20 tonnes of toxic clophen the
"Voice of America".

Ecological bomb ready to explode in Xanthi - 20 tonnes of toxic clophen
the "Voice of America".

-There are already reports that the toxic started leaking from machinery.

-Located within walking distance of the Nestos and the seas of the
municipality Topeirou,

An ecological bomb gigantic remains exposed and abandoned the premises of
"Voice of America" in the municipality Topeirou Xanthi, causing great
concern both to local residents and scientists about the risks that may be
preying.

It is a huge amount of toxic clophen, over 20 tonnes, which is currently
within the radio installations, known to literally abandoned. Noteworthy
that no other building in the country is not so much the banned toxic
clophen.

The clophen is both transformers and transmitters facilities while the
concern of residents and special compounded by the fact that today almost
everyone can enter the area of ??the "Voice of America". Recently also
recorded a series of thefts and vandalism in the area.

At the same time, the toxic that was used in the past as electrical
insulation and has now banned, located a stone's throw from the banks of
the river Nestos and the coastal area of ??the municipality Topeirou,
while there are reports that the clophen has already started to leak from
the machinery which controlled by officials.

As we know the clophen is carcinogenic to humans but dangerous for the
environment as it can completely disrupt the ecosystem, and can remain
active even if you spend hundreds of years.

Xanthi photovoltaic park area of the "Voice of America"!
Submitted by radiofono.gr on Thur, 15/09/2011.

The first priority for the installation of a large solar park is the
extent of the Voice of America, according to official government's
intentions. The area of ?8,000 acres in Dasochori with it in Prasochori
Rhodes are the first two to be given on rent to a 25 year old German
investors for installing large photovoltaic parks with the obvious aim to
deliver revenue anaxopoiites public areas.

This is the "Sun", announced by Germany Environment Minister George
Papaconstantinou in the context of a known interest from German side for
investment in the production of energy from RES in Greece. For the
selection of "loins" played the role clear ownership and is expected to be
named Special Investment Zones and licensing of specific business
processes will become a Fast Track.

SOLOMON ISLANDS   9545, SIBC. Thanks to Glenn's item in WOR 1724,
regarding Craig Seager reporting on the new sign off time here; checked
June 6 at 0400 UT, but only heard a weak carrier; by 0445 UT finally
hitting threshold level and slowly improving; EZL Pacific Island pop
songs; suddenly off at 0501* UT, just as Craig reported. So this is why we
no longer hear this frequency signing off at the former 1159* UT. Is
unfortunate that they go off so early, as one or two more hours on the air
would make a world of difference to their reception.

U.K.   60 kHz - MSF Outage - on 12 June 2014.

The MSF 60 kHz time and frequency signal broadcast from Anthorn Radio
Station will be shut down on
Thursday 12 June 2014 from 1000 to 1400 BST (0900 to 13:00 UT).

The MSF 60 kHz standard-frequency and time signal, broadcast by Babcock
International on behalf of The National Physical Laboratory (NPL), is
occasionally taken off-air to allow maintenance work on the masts and
antennas at Anthorn Radio Station to be carried out in safety. This means
that your radio-controlled clock will not be picking up the MSF signal, so
may not be working correctly.

The duration of each outage period will be kept to a minimum, and the
signal may be back on-air prior to the times given above.

More details:
<http://www.npl.co.uk/science-technology/time-frequency/products-and-services/time/msf-outages>

LF transmitter: National Physical Laboratory time signal:

NPL has installed three atomic clocks at Anthorn and on 27 February 2007
Britain's national time signal transmissions, retaining their original
call sign of MSF, were transferred there on a trial basis, moving formally
on 1 April 2007. Monitoring and logging of the clocks and control of the
transmissions is by Internet link from the NPL offices at Teddington,
using comparison with GPS signals at both locations. Signal monitoring is
by radio. To ensure accuracy, dynamic adjustment of the aerial according
to local conditions (such as wind distortion) is controlled from computers
on site. The signals, transmitted at 60 kHz, also provide a national
frequency standard. The effective radiated power is 17 kW.

USA   NASB annual meeting at VOA/IBB Greenville.

As part of the recent NASB annual meeting held at the VOA/IBB Edward R.
Murrow transmitting station just outside of Greenville, NC the attendees
were given a first class tour of the site. The meeting was fun, with
informative seminars, discussions and slide shows. And I, along with the
other hobbyists in attendance got to meet the people that do this for a
living. Our fondest dream.

However, I drove home with almost as many questions as I had before the
tour. Not because of any shortcomings of the tour but because the place is
so big it's difficult to see everything, absorb everything and ask the
right questions. I'll write a bit about the site and some of the things I
learned. My photos are supplemented by photos taken by Zyg Skrobanski and
Christopher Rumbaugh, two of the other hobbyists in attendance.

The "B" site is located about 15 miles south-east of Greenville, NC and is
the only remaining active IBB transmitter site in the US. It was built in
the early '60s along with an identical transmitter facility ("A" site)
located about 15 miles north-east of Greenville and a receive only
facility ("C" site) about 5 miles west of Greenville.
{USA_IBB_VOA receiving station located at
35 37 56.76 N  77 29 01.21 W
<https://goo.gl/maps/M7pWa>  }
"A" and "C" are no longer in use by the IBB.

Currently Greenville broadcasts using 5 different transmitters. Any of the
transmitters can be routed to any of the antennas through a massive switch
matrix covering about 12,000 square feet. The matrix is designed to handle
as many as 11 transmitter inputs with 39 antenna outputs. One transmission
line feeds two adjacent antennas via a remotely operated switch.

Using GE and Bing, I've examined the 2700 acre antenna field. I count 40
separate shortwave antennas; 20 rhombics, 16 curtains, 2 log periodics,
one tuned dipole with a tuned reflector and one dipole without a
reflector. Eighteen different azimuths are covered. One terminated rhombic
apparently is reversible. Most of the antennas were part of the original
construction in the early '60s. However at least two TCI curtain antennas
were added later. The dipole with reflector may have been added because it
shares a feed line with an adjacent rhombic.

The two TCI AHR(S) 4/6/0.5 curtain antennas have a primary azimuth of 160
degrees, roughly crossing South America along a Caracas-Montevideo line.
In addition, the TCIs can be slewed plus or minus 12 or 24 degrees
horizontally with three different angles of fire so that near, medium or
distant targets can be selected. For example, Radio Marti selects 172 and
184 degree azimuths for many of their transmissions to Cuba. Marti also
uses rhombics at 183 and 205 degrees.

Since the end of the Cold War, broadcasts to Europe from Greenville have
been eliminated except for a few Radiogram transmissions using a 45 degree
curtain. Radiogram is also broadcast to North America using the bi-
directional folded dipole. In addition, there are several broadcasts to
Africa using a curtain at 91 degrees and a couple of rhombics at 94
degrees.

My heartfelt thanks to our gracious hosts at IBB Greenville, Rick, Macon
and Tom for their hospitality and to the members of the NASB for allowing
non professionals to attend their meeting.

VANUATU   3945  R. Vanuatu. It's Saturday (June 7), so "RN2" (Japan) signs
off early (0900 UT), so was possible to catch Vanuatu's sign off at 1216*
UT, just after instrumental National Anthem ("Yumi, Yumi, Yumi"); poor,
but the best heard in a long time on this frequency.

Segun se comenta por parte de DXistas venezolanos en la zona donde seria
la planta transmisora, hay arboles y vegetacion de sabana.

En enero de 2012, en el II ENCUENTRO DIEXISTA COLOMBO-VENEZOLANO celebrado
en San Cristobal, fue invitado el Coordinador de la Onda Corta y no fue
mucho lo que se informo del avance de la obra.

De tal manera que se desconoce si esta obra fue paralizada o por el
contrario esta mas avanzada de lo que en su debida oportunidad se ha
informado. Al parecer "es un secreto de Estado muy bien guardado pues hay
mucho hermetismo"

Una carta solicitando informacion se ha enviado a la emisora por parte de
Santiago San Gil Gonzalez, CDXA, Barinas, Venezuela, con el siguiente
tenor:

"Carta publica al Servicio Internacional de Radio Nacional de Venezuela,
solicitando informacion sobre el proyecto de el centro de ondas cortas
Simon Bolivar en el Estado Guarico.

Estimados amigos de RNV:

Reciban un cordial saludo, en nombre de los socios activos del club
diexistas de la amistad -C.DX.A -Internacional-, una institucion sin fines
de lucro que agrupa a nivel nacional e internacional a personas que
practican la aficion del diexismo, es decir la practica de sintonizar y
reportar estaciones de radios, las cuales por lo general operan en las
ondas cortas.

Precisamente por esta razon nos dirigimos a ustedes para solicitarles
informacion publica sobre el proyecto de su emisora para emitir en ondas
cortas desde su nuevo centro transmisor ubicado en el centro del pais.
A tal efecto nos preguntamos lo siguiente:

1) ?que paso con el proyecto "Centro de Ondas Cortas Simon Bolivar de
   Radio Nacional de Venezuela" en Las Mercedes, Estado Guarico?

2) ?como van las obras de infraestructura, antenas, instalacion de
   transmisores y equipos tecnicos?

3) finalmente, +cuando comienzan sus transmisiones?

En vista de que hay mucho interes a nivel nacional e internacional de
diexistas y radioescuchas de ondas cortas, por el desarrollo de este
proyecto y que, ante la falta de informacion, recurren a nuestro club DX
para saber como ha evolucionado esta iniciativa. Esta es la razon por la
cual muy respetuosamente acudimos a usted para tener de primera mano dicha
informacion.

Ademas, de ser posible, nos gustaria recibir: fotos, videos, etc, de como
van adelantados dichos trabajos o en su defecto ponernos en contacto con
la persona encargada, quien nos puede suministrar informacion al respecto
para darla a conocer a nuestros socios y otros clubes diexistas alrededor
del mundo que sabran valorar las buenas noticias que nos suministren.

Sin mas a que hacer referencia y a la espera de una pronta respuesta,
reciban nuestro mas cordial saludo

Atentamente:

VIETNAM   12019.117   Voice of Vietnam in Indonesian language section via
Son Tay center, Male BI reader on very odd frequency. Only poor signal in
Australia downunder S=6 or -90dBm signal. Vietnamese home sce from Son Tay
on 25 mb on even 11720.0 kHz heard also at 2322 UT.
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 6)

7210.000  Voice of Vietnam 1st domestic px from 'Daclac / Dak Lak - Buon
Me Thuot' site scheduled 2145-1700 UT, at 1100 UT June 8, S=9 or -73dBm
heard on remote SDR unit in southern Brisbane Australia. But also the Dak
Lak station produced two wider spurious signals of 4 kHz wide each, on
7196.305 and 7223.685 kHz.

7284.966  Voice of Vietnam older Hanoi Me Tri site outlet in English at
1100-1130 UT June 8, S=8 -80dB signal downunder on remote unit in
Australia.

7435.582  Odd signal of Son Tay site at 1115 UT June 8, Vo Vietnam VN1
program in Vietnamese language, hit by interference of nominal even 7435.0
Beijing CRI Mandarin service.

5983.0 and 5967.0 kHz. Vietnam - VOV1 Hanoi Me Tri site spur of 5975 kHz.

5967.000 and 5983.000 Unid Vietnamese sce. Please help, - noted VoVTN home
sce VR1 Vietnamese male reader on exact 5983.0 kHz next to Myanmar Radio
on exact 5985.0 kHz at 1125 UT June 8. But then checked 5975 kHz Hanoi Me
Tri outlet which is there ecact frequency more or less, also // 7210.0 kHz
Daclac / Dak Lak - Buon Me Thuot' site at same time, 7435.582 kHz and
strongest 9635 kHz Son Tay too. But not traced on 11720 kHz Son Tay
outlet.

So, traced now 5975 kHz Hanoi Me Tri outlet NOW ON BOTH SIDES:
SPURIOUS on 5967.000 and 5983.000 kHz, 8 kHz exact away distance. Much
stronger signal on SPURS than nominal 5975 kHz ! 5975 kHz Hanoi Me Tri has
male function !
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 8)

Thank you so much for your excellent info. We were both listening to VOV1
today on 5983.0 kHz. Re: dxld 14-13 (March 26, 2014):

John [Wilkins] and I have been monitoring a weak carrier on 5983.0, but
never any audio or anything that would be IDable. Just a curious little
carrier below threshold level.
(Ron Howard-CA-USA, dxld March 25)

June 8 finally had some decent audio on 5983.0 kHz; clearly in Vietnamese
language at 1255 UT, so went looking for // ; success finding it // 5975
(poor) // 7210 (poor) // 7435.57 (fair) // 9635.0 (the best), with Voice
of Vietnam-1 programs. The spur was almost as strong as 5975 kHz. Did not
think to check 5967.0 kHz.
(Ron Howard-CA-USA, wwdxc BC-DX TopNew June 8)

VIETNAM   6020  on June 7 at 2130 UT. Most likely Voice of Vietnam network
4 carrying a different program than on 6165 kHz as not in // . Very
peaceful music and no ID as expected at 2200 UT. Too much QRN to get any
ID later on. VoV on 6165 kHz was heard with very good signal and ID at
2150 UT.
(Thomas Nilsson-SWE, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 8)

Voice of Vietnam-1. Thanks to Wolfy's tip, on June 9 at 1109 UT was able
to hear the second spur on 5967.0 kHz which was // 5983.0 kHz spur, while
5975 kHz was covered by a strong CNR8; also // 7210 7435.57 9635.0 kHz.
