ALBANIA   ALR Radio Tirana Shijak in period B-16 winter season,
uploaded B16alr change.

Hello Drita,
here below is our suggested frequency schedule for ALR in B-16 and we
suggest that you register frequency 7475 kHz as soon as possible.
As I mailed you previously, 7465 kHz is also registered by the BBC
at 0000-0100 UT and it would not be advisable for ALR to use this
frequency at the same time.

Glenn has been making checks on and around frequency 7475 kHz and he
reports that it is a clear channel. It is not registered by any other
broadcaster during the the times ALR would use it.

Therefore, to North America at 0000-0100 and also 0230-0300 UT we suggest
frequency 7475 kHz be used instead of 7465 kHz. By using this frequency
for both transmissions it would not be necessary for the engineer to
change frequency.

Of course, we also hope that the transmitter can soon be repaired and
restored to full power, and that the hum / buzz noise will be removed from
the audio.

Greetings from sunny Blackpool and Regards from ... Noel

ACENSION ISLAND   21715drm mode. Special DRM transmission celebrating
50th Anniversary of SW broadcast from Ascension Island.

Special DRM transmission from Ascension Island - Sunday 28th August 2016,
1155 to 1400 UTC.

DRM will be part of a big anniversary on a small island in the Atlantic
Ocean. On 28th of August at 1155 GMT/UTC Babcock International will ensure
a special BBC digital transmission from the BBC Atlantic Relay station on
21715 kHz, marking the fiftieth anniversary of the BBC's first short-wave
radio broadcast from Ascension Island.

Since 1966, the Atlantic Relay station has broadcast BBC World Service
programmes to Africa and South America, and to this day, continues to
broadcast over 250 programme hours every week to East and West Africa in
English, French, Hausa and Somali.

The two hour-transmission will start with the old, special sound of Bow
Church Bell in east London, the sound of which, even if in DRM this time,
will remind older listeners of the BBC broadcasts of many decades ago.

The 2-hour transmission will be the regular BBC programmes for West and
South Africa and will end at 1400 UT.

This special transmission will be sent with greetings from Ascension
Island's BBC and Babcock International staff and visitors, who will be
celebrating half a century of sterling broadcasting on August 28th.

Now the question is, if this was just an extended sesquiweek of scheduled

advance warning and assuring us when they would resume? As theorized, they
may well have also taken the opportunity to assess their undesirable
audience.

AUSTRALIA   Are people really listening to Radio Australia?

As you may have seen on radio related blogs and on radio related facebook
pages about Radio Australia being off air.
(They returned to SW at 2257 UTC on August 18th-UTC).

I'm starting to wonder how many people really listen to Radio Australia.
Two days before Shepparton was taken off air for a long overhaul.
A message was broadcast at the beginning of Pacific Beat informing 
listeners the alternative ways to listen to RA and ABC programs.

Messages like this or when there is a technical problem. Are not broadcast
from the master control room in Melbourne. These messages are out of the
control at Shepparton.

Pacific Beat is the only English language production at Radio Australia,
which goes out twice a day. The rest of the schedule is made up of ABC
News and ABC RN program. Either on a delay, except for AM, PM, and The
World Today that go out live. The ABC would have no idea what RA is doing
or anything about any of the work being done at Shepparton.

We relay Pacific Beat on our FM stations in Cambodia. Since Pacific Beat
goes out live the file the have on their FTP is the live recording.
The 40 second message was cut in before the top of the hour.

- - - Really not sure why there was concern. Shutting it's transmitters
it's something they do every 14 to 18 months, while the whole of
Shepperton is given the once over by Broadcast Australia. They have been
doing this for years.

GERMANY   Thementag Digitalradio von ARD und Deutschlandradio am 29. Aug.

Die Zukunft des Radios ist digital. Unter dem Motto "DAB+. Mehr Radio."
werden am 29. August alle Hoerfunkprogramme der ARD und des
Deutschlandradios ihre Kraefte buendeln und rund um die Uhr ueber die
Vorteile, die faszinierende Vielfalt und die neuen Moeglichkeiten des
digitalen Radios informieren. Unterstuetzt wird der Thementag auch in den
Fernsehprogrammen der ARD und im Online-Auftritt von ARD und
Deutschlandradio.

"Vor Beginn der IFA 2016 setzen wir hiermit ein starkes Signal, dass DAB+
ein Standard fuer einen modernen, zukunftsfaehigen Hoerfunk in Deutschland
und Europa ist", so die ARD-Vorsitzende Karola Wille: "Die stetig
steigenden Verkaufszahlen fuer DAB+-Geraete in Deutschland und der stark
forcierte Ausbau des Sendernetzes fuer terrestrisches Digitalradio zeigen,
dass wir hier auf dem richtigen Weg sind. Die Marktbeteiligten haben sich
in einer Koalition zusammengeschlossen, um die Roadmap auf dem Weg zum
Standard DAB+ zu beschreiben. Fuer den regulatorischen Rahmen auf diesem
Weg benoetigen wir aber auch die Hilfe der Politik."

Digitalradio ist Hoerfunk in klarer, rauschfreier Audioqualitaet. Schon
heute bietet DAB+ gegenueber UKW eine deutlich groessere Programmvielfalt,
die neuen Angebote werden von den Hoererinnen und Hoerern geschaetzt.
Digitalradio bietet auch die Moeglichkeit, zusaetzliche Informationen wie
Nachrichten, Eventvorschauen, aktuelle Wettergrafiken und Musiktitel
abzurufen.

DAB+ ist besonders fuer Autofahrer interessant - die Navigationssysteme
koennen bei DAB+ gegenueber UKW mit einem wesentlich aktuelleren und
praeziseren Verkehrsfunk von ARD und Deutschlandradio nach dem
internationalen TPEG-Standard versorgt werden.

DAB+ eroeffnet Radioanbietern zudem innovative Moeglichkeiten fuer
programmliche Entwicklung und neue Special-Interest-Angebote. Anders als
beim Webradio ist keine Internetverbindung noetig. Wer DAB+ hoert,
verbraucht keine Datenmengen, die Flatrate wird nicht angetastet. Es
entstehen also keine zusaetzlichen Kosten. Im Krisenfall, wenn das
Mobilfunknetz ueberlastet ist oder zusammenbricht, bleibt Digitalradio
weiterhin empfangbar.

DAB+-Radiogeraete sind in grosser Vielfalt bereits ab 20 Euro im Handel
erhaeltlich. Auch die Automobilindustrie setzt zunehmend auf DAB+ und
stattet Neufahrzeuge mit dieser Technik aus, zudem lassen sich viele
Autoradios einfach nachruesten.

DAB+ ist international. In Deutschland, der Schweiz, Italien, Daenemark,
Norwegen und Grossbritannien ist der Digitalradiostandard schon weit
verbreitet. Andere Laender haben begonnen, regulaer DAB+ zu senden oder
stehen kurz davor.

Der Thementag "DAB+. Mehr Radio." informiert mit redaktionellen
Beitraegen, und Verantwortliche aus Politik, Medien und Automobilindustrie
melden sich zu Wort.

Die Hoererinnen und Hoerer werden aktiv ins Programm eingebunden und haben
die Chance, DAB+-Geraete und DAB+-faehige Smartphones zu gewinnen.

GUAM/PORTUGAL   The KSDA Story from Wavescan Aug 2016 - Adrian Peterson

We Return to the Shortwave Scene on the Island of Guam:
The KSDA Story - part 1

It was during the year 1968 that the leadership of the Adventist
denomination, at their headquarters on the edge of Washington DC, began a
renewed interest in the development of a shortwave network for the
broadcast of Gospel programming. At the time, Dr. Walter Scragg, born in
New Zealand of Australian parents, was serving in the leadership of the
Communication Department.

Three years later, the newly married American couple, Allen and Andrea
Steele, were invited to establish their home in Lisbon Portugal, where
they inaugurated the first official broadcast from what soon became
identified as Adventist World Radio.

Their first shortwave broadcast was inaugurated over the 250 kW
transmitter number 3 at Radio Trans Europe at Sines Portugal
on Friday evening October 1, 1971 in a service beamed to Eastern Europe
in the 31 metre band.

A Master Plan for world coverage on shortwave that was developed during
this era called for a network of four stations; located in Europe, Western
Pacific, Central America and Africa. A lengthy period of intense research
was entered into in an endeavour to obtain a suitable transmitter location
in the Pacific-Asian arena, and several different locations were given
serious consideration. Among the tentative locations under consideration
were Sri Lanka, Maldive Islands, Philippines, South Korea, Hawaii, Palau
and Guam.

Finally, Guam was chosen and the Steele family, now well experienced in
the international shortwave world, were invited to relocate on Guam. The
first temporary office for the new AWR shortwave station on Guam was in a
small section of the Adventist mission office in Agana.

In September 1984, the FCC in Washington DC issued a Construction Permit
for the new shortwave station that would be located on 40 acres of coastal
land at Facpi Point on the island's west coast. This property was on the
downward slope of Mt Lamlam, the highest mountain on the island of Guam.

Work began at the new property on Wednesday September 11, 1985 when a
bulldozer began to smooth a new access roadway, "Torres Adventista", off
of island Highway 2. One month later on Friday October 11, a Ground
Breaking Ceremony was held at the yet undeveloped property, with the
official participation of the island governor, His Excellency Ricardo
Bordallo.

At this stage, the Steeles transferred the office function of Adventist
World Radio to a house in Agat, the Pink House, one mile from the radio
station itself. In addition, the new Guam station was designated as AWR-
Asia, and the original AWR-Asia in Poona India was redesignated as AWR-
Southern Asia.

Two years later on January 18 (1987), the new radio station was dedicated
in an official ceremony in which the new island governor, His Excellency
Joseph Ada, participated. Nearly 500 people attended this gala function,
including several denominational leaders from the world headquarters on
the edge of Washington DC. Official visitors from the the city of Agana
arrived in a long motorcade that was escorted by local police on
motorcycles.

The parade ground in front of the gleaming white transmitter building was
adorned with the colorful fluttering flags from 22 countries, representing
the territories that would be in the main coverage area of this new
shortwave station. Among the grand musical items that were presented on
the Day of Dedication were renderings from the Voice of Prophecy Choir
that flew in from South Korea, and a Brass Ensemble from Agana. The Korean
Choir also performed in special ceremonies at Government House, and also
in the Korean Presbyterian Church in Agana.

The first two transmitters installed at AWR Facpi Point were manufactured
in France by Thomson-CSF; 100 kW Model TRE2311P. Transmitter No 1 was hard
wired into Antenna 1, a TCI Curtain Model 611; and Transmitter No 2 was
hard wired into a similar curtain, No 3. Many possible callsigns, mostly
some form of acronym, were given serious consideration but ultimately the
very obvious acronym KSDA , foe Seventh-day Adventist, was chosen and
approved by the FCC.

Transmitter KSDA1 was given its initial test transmission at 2:35 pm local
time on Thursday March 5, 1987, with a simple test announcement stating:

"This is Adventist World Radio-Asia, KSDA Agat Guam, broadcasting
on 11720 kHz. This is a test broadcast." This transmitter began a regular
schedule of program broadcasting next evening at 7:00 pm.

Transmitter KSDA2 began a week long series of test broadcasts later in the
year on October 24 (1987) and it was taken into regular service without
ceremony just one week later on November 1.

Several years went by, and two more shortwave transmitters at 100 kW were
obtained, this time from Continental in Dallas, Texas. These new units
were designated as Model 418E and 418F.

Dedication Day for KSDA3 was May 16, 1995, and the event was celebrated
with a live broadcast in both Chinese and English beamed to Asia.
Transmitter KSDA4 was taken into regular service in January of the next
year (1996), thus completing the original concept for AWR-Asia; four
transmitters at 100 kW and four curtain antennas.

INDIA   Re: Eve of India's Independence Day

4950 Srinagar - not heard; this also was a surprise, as on many days
recently I have been hearing a decent open carrier here which I believe to
be from AIR Radio Kashmir and seemed close to having audio, but clearly
completely off the air today. (1130-1740 UT registered, wb)

Best wishes to my friends in India for their Independence Day!  Ron

Aug 14, on the eve of India's Independence Day, the President of India
addresses the nation; 1330 ID in English followed by National Anthem;
President's address in English. Rather disappointing results this year,
as some AIR regional stations have ended their SW service.

4760 Leh - not heard
4760 Port Blair - JBA open carrier (no audio heard)
4775 Imphal - off the air
4800 Hyderabad - not heard due to strong CNR1
4810 Bhopal - JBA
4820 Kolkata - off the air (now only PBS Xizang)
4835 Gangtok - not heard; only ABC Alice Springs NT
4840 Mumbai - off the air
4850 Kohima - off the air
4860 Shimla - off the air
4880 Lucknow - off the air
4895 Kurseong - JBA
4910 Jaipur - JBA
4920 Chennai - heard through the Tibet QRM
4970 Shillong - JBA (not as strong as normally heard)
4990 Itanagar - off the air (now only PBS Hunan [China])

5010 Thiruvananthapuram - JBA
5040 Jeypore - JBA
5050 Aizawl - not heard; this was a surprise, as just as recently as
     Aug 12, had very decent reception at 1330, but nothing today.
6030 Delhi - not heard due to strong CNR1
9425 Delhi - not heard

9380 Aligarh - JBA
9870 Bangalore - good signal, but mixing with strong QRM (CRI in English).
Ron, listening in California, USA.

RUSSIA/exUSSR/FALKLAND ISLANDS/MALVINAS   Radio Amateur history 30 years
ago on the day of 15th anniversary of the RTRS.

August 13, 1986 in Leningrad{now St.P.} region my first and last time
managed to take the Falkland Islands Broadcasting Station on 2380 kHz, as
I remember, morning, P-250M2 receiver on the porch of the house, and in
the early hours, checking the range of 120 m, discover on 2380 kHz with a
good reception quality music program without any speaker announcements,
and the songs are slow and entirely English-language, ie, format is
clearly not normally received at this frequency the Brazilian Radio
Educadora (running at that frequency until now!). In general, having
waited an hour later, the ad YL and realizing that this is really the
Falklands, I almost fell off the chair ... of course, were sent to several
reports (including repeated), but, alas, the answer from the station have
not been received.

It took more than 20 years, and here in one of the directories WRTH my eye
catches an article on FIBS, which is, of course, no longer broadcasts on
HF, and is running an all-female team (servicing SW and FM-transmitters
and AFD help them British military signalers with the nearest base of the
royal Navy).

In general, the writing on the station, already on an email, stating the
above-described history and ask whether it is possible to receive the QSL
for receiving more than twenty years ago? And, almost fantastic, getting
response from Corinne Bishop (station manager), if briefly - "happy to
send send a report." End of story? Unfortunately no. Corina QSL sent to a
postcard "lost" on the way, perhaps, drowned in the waters of the
Atlantic, well not in our main post office as her "disappear". Re-connects
with Corina and she kindly send the card again, but already in the
envelope. The End.

SWEDEN   In Hoerby they had de-ice equipment by disconnecting the
transmitters and put on high voltage out in the antenna system.

You also had SW-transmissions from Varberg / Grimeton on SSB until early
1990's. I think the transmission ceased at the same time as from
Karlsborg.
(Chris S.-SWE, SW txsite Aug 11)

SWEDEN   [and non]  The ABB/Thales transmitter from Hoerby ended
also up at RNW's site at Madagascar. Maybe there is some connection?
(Chris Stoedberg-SWE, SWtxsites yg via dxld Aug 10)

There was the little known Karlsborg operation, overshadowed by the
co-located (V)LF and SW utility. But now there's at least this:

<https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b8/KarlsborgRadio.jpg>

Check out the photos on the wall. One of them clearly portrays the
Thomson transmitter (500 or 350 kW?), and the photo of the big LP to
its right probably means that this was the only antenna for the
broadcasting transmitter. At least the rhombics in the mock-up were,
as two recognizable labels reveal, only for PTP transmissions with
lower power.

By the way: What became of the Soelvesborg transmitter in the meantime?
(Kai Ludwig-D, Aug 4, SWtxsites yg via dxld Aug 10)

There was a curtain antenna at Karlsborg (maybe for LW), demolished in
2001. The transmitter at Soelvesborg is still present there together
with the antennas. Nothing has been done since the close down except
for draining the transmitter on cooling water.
(Chris Stoedberg-SWE, Skickat fran min iPhone, ibid.)

A curtain antenna for longwave? (J Lenamon, ibid.)

Re: Sackville equipment "to a radio facility in Madagascar".
In 1927 when the first nationwide radioprogram was to be aired from the
new longwave transmitter in Motala, it was actually from Karlsborg
since Motala wasn't really done yet.
Here's more about Karlsborg LW / SW, in Swedish:
<http://www.samlaren.org/kborgstn.htm>
(Chris Stoedberg-SWE, Skickat fran min iPhone, ibid.)

I may be able to shed some light on the 350 / 500 kW confusion.
I distinctly recall hearing (in an episode of "Sweden Calling DXers"
with George Wood from about 1979) that there were issues with running
500 kW power into the log-periodic antennas. Particularly when
humidity was very low as it often was in Winter, 500 kW was enough to
promote strong corona discharge from the tips of the LP Antenna
elements leading to damage.

George stated that they had Thomson CSF come back and "wind the
transmitters down" to 350 kW to avoid damaging the LP antennas.

I suspect the same situation would have still been the case when the
later BBC/ABB transmitters were installed (in 1993 if I recall
correctly) but most likely the later ABB units would have had
adjustable power output as a standard feature. The Thomson CSF units
from mid/late 70s probably didn't, hence the visit from Thomson
(Calvin Melen, Aug 6, ibid.)

Just looked up WRTH 1994:
It stated "Hoerby 2 x 350 kW,
Karlsborg 1 x 350 kW".
And the same in Norway: "Fredrikstad 350 kW".

This made me wonder if the nominal power of the transmitters was
really 500 kW. But apparently yes, the Issoudun ones,
always listed as 500 kW, had the same model number (2350).

Did they really need the help of the manufacturer to set up a lower
carrier power? Would quite surprise me. But perhaps one should not
weigh the description given back then too well, and the same may go
for Hoerby operational practices.

At least photos suggest that Karlsborg and Fredrikstad used not only
the same transmitter model but the same antenna model as well (and
shared also the circumstance that no other antenna than this LP was
available for the 500 kW rig). Thus it's of course no surprise that
the same set-up with 350 kW output has been used at both sites,
presumably suggested to both operators by Thomson-Houston.

Hallo Kai, die Nutzung der Sender und Antennen in Hoerby, Karlsborg
und Varberg in Schweden

hatte viel mehr Facetten, Variationen und Flexibilitaet.

Ich habe mal nur die 500 kW Tabelleneintraege
von PeaceWood / ILG - COPYRIGHT - heraus gezogen.
Die 350 kW Eintraege habe ich mir erspart, zu kopieren.

Vor allem in den europaeischen Wintermonaten Nov / Dec / Jan
wurde 'volle Kanne' 500 kW nach NoAM, SoAM, EaAS, AUS/PAC eingesetzt.

Hoerby location.
Erst zum Ende von Radio Sweden Service auf Kurzwelle ab 1993 und
den 2000-dern waren in Hoerby 3 x 500 kW Sender im Einsatz.
Vorher 1972 bis 1993 gab es nur zwei, 2 x 500 kW H1 und H2.

Mit den 6 Curtains in Hoerby wurden 500 kW
oder auch oekonomisch reduziert im europaeischen Nahbereich
auch nur 250 kW eingesetzt.
HRS/4/4/0.5 in direction 70, 250, 290 degr,
+/- 30degr slewed,
gain 19-23dBi,
beam width 20-40degr, - je nach curtain type/meterband.

Die 2 x rotatable log-periodics konnten nur mit maximal 350 kW gefahren
werden, wegen Strom-Ueberschlaegen,
current flashover lightning - strong corona discharge -
waren also nicht mit voller 500 kW Leistung nutzbar.
Manchmal reduziert oekonomisch 250 kW im Einsatz.
60 m and 20 m height, gain 12 - 14 dBi.  Beam width 60degr.

Fuer die Europaversorgung gab es mit 250 kW Nutzung ein spezielle
bi-directional Antenne,
mittig jeweils auf 140 und 240 degr,
mit ihrer +/- 30 degr Streuung deckte sie praktisch Europa und Nord Afrika
bis zu den Canary Islands, von 110 bis 270 degr azimuth ab.
Fuer die Seeleute wurden sogar noch die North Sea und der oestliche
NordAtlantik erreicht.

Karlsborg location.
1 x 500 kW TX, ab 1972 im Einsatz, gleicher Typ wie H1 und H2 tx.

1 x rotatable log-periodic konnte nur mit maximal 350 kW gefahren werden.
Height 30 m, gain 12 - 14 dBi.  Beam width 60degr.

Varberg location.
1 x 100 kW, in SSB Mode im Einsatz.

1 x rotatable log-periodic.
Height 40 m, gain 13dBi.  Beam width 60degr.

SWITZERLAND   Bundesrat lehnt Volksinitiative "Ja zur Abschaffung der
Radio- und Fernsehgebuehren" ab.

Der Schweizer Bundesrat hat sich mit der Volksinitiative "Ja zur
Abschaffung der Radio- und Fernsehgebuehren (Abschaffung der
Billag-Gebuehren)" befasst.
Diese fordert die Abschaffung der Radio- und Fernsehempfangsgebuehren
und der damit verbundenen Finanzierung von Radio und Fernsehen.

Der Bundesrat ist der Ansicht, dass eine Annahme der Volksinitiative
einschneidende Auswirkungen auf die Schweizer Medienlandschaft haette und
den Medienplatz Schweiz erheblich schwaechen wuerde. Die Meinungs- und
Angebotsvielfalt in den elektronischen Medien wuerde stark eingeschraenkt.
Dies widerspricht der medienpolitischen Haltung des Bundesrates
grundlegend, weshalb er die Volksinitiative ohne Gegenentwurf ablehnt.

Die Initiative "Ja zur Abschaffung der Radio- und Fernsehgebuehren
(Abschaffung der Billag-Gebuehren)" wurde am 11. Dezember 2015 mit 112.191
gueltigen Unterschriften eingereicht. Sie will erreichen, dass die
konzessionierten gebuehrenfinanzierten Radio- und Fernsehveranstalter
keine Beitraege aus den Empfangsgebuehren mehr erhalten.

Ausserdem sollen auch weitere direkte Subventionszahlungen an Radio- und
Fernsehveranstalter in Zukunft unterbleiben. Die Initiantinnen und
Initianten begruenden ihr Anliegen damit, dass die SRG ueber ein
"Quasi-Monopol" verfuege. Dieses sei aufzuheben und durch einen fairen
Medienwettbewerb zu ersetzen.

In seiner Sitzung hat sich der Bundesrat gegen die Initiative
ausgesprochen.

Er wird diese dem Parlament ohne Gegenentwurf zur Ablehnung empfehlen.
Damit bekraeftigt er seine Haltung, wie er sie im Bericht vom
17. Juni 2016 zum Service public im Medienbereich dargelegt hat.
Darin ist er zum Schluss gekommen, dass die Schweiz auch in Zukunft
eigenstaendige, in allen Sprachregionen vergleichbare, qualitativ gute,
unabhaengige und einforderbare Radio- und Fernsehangebote braucht und
dafuer die entsprechenden finanziellen Mittel bereitgestellt werden
muessen.

Die Annahme der Volksinitiative haette einschneidende Auswirkungen auf das
Angebot der elektronischen Medien in der Schweiz. Sie haette eine
drastische Reduktion des Leistungsangebots der konzessionierten, bislang
gebuehrenfinanzierten Radio- und Fernsehveranstalter zur Folge.
Besonders stark betroffen waeren die franzoesisch-, italienisch- und
raetoromanischsprachige Schweiz.

Der Bundesrat wird seine Botschaft zur Volksinitiative bis am
11. Dezember 2016 an das Parlament ueberweisen.

zumindest in HB9 ticken die Uhren noch richtig. Sehr gut!  wb, Aug 19

TAIWAN   9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed). On Aug 8 (Monday), it finally
dawned on me as to a possible pattern here. Aug 1 and July 25, both
Mondays, I had reception here. Is it possible they only broadcast on
Monday? Heard this Monday, 0949-1000* UT; in Chinese; was expecting them
to come back on at 1100, but they never were heard after 1100 UT;
still no sign of 9774 kHz. Needs more monitoring.

Aug 9 (Tuesday) - So much for my "Monday only" theory! Heard 9410 kHz
today at 1205 UT and subsequent checking; in Chinese with EZL songs; poor.
Still no 9774 kHz. So do they have any type of formal schedule, or is it
just hit or miss?
(Ron Howard-CA-USA, dxld Aug 10)

USA   WMLK is still off the air and I was curious if there have been any
updates on the status of its transmitter.

I found these entries on the WMLK F_B page
<https://www.facebook.com/www.wmlkradio.net/>

"WMLK Radio added 2 new photos. June 10.
We have been waiting patiently for replacement parts to arrive here at
WMLK Radio. The Engineers were trying to raise the plate voltage to a
higher level when a current limiting choke failed in the power supply for
the rectifier units. This caused an avalanche effect that shorted out
several components. The choke was sent for rebuild and just arrived from
the rebuilder today (10 June 2016).

Some of the diodes that failed were received and placed back into the
faulted circuitry. However, the larger diode replacements were ordered and
we have yet to receive them. The Engineers are currently working on a FiOS
designed power supply system to replace this older (42 yo) power supply.

When placing circuitry under high voltage the weaknesses are revealed.
Sorry that this update took so long to inform those who support this great
project of the progress! We are getting closer to returning to the air.
The choke before and after rebuild appears below."

"WMLK Radio July 27 at 12:56pm
The engineer is preparing to return to WMLK Radio in just over two weeks
time.

After visiting one of his former employers he will implement what he has
learned into the radio station upgrading process. After he returns more
information will be available and this will be posted, to keep our
listeners up to date!"

USA/AUSTRALIA   9265  UT Fri Aug 5 at 0300 UT sharp,
WINB starts new weekly program from Unique Radio. Aussie Tim Gaynor spends
the hour talking about his own 3210 kHz station (80 watts PEP),
acknowledging reception reports for that going back to March, many of them
using web SDRs as close as Brisbane. Including: David Martin, Mauno
Ritola, Ian Baxter, Bryan Clark, Bruce Churchill, Ian Wells.

{Still pending site change: present one has mountain range blocking
reception toward Sydney; new one will be on flat land, should get out
better.}

Alternates with pop tunes from the 60s and 70s, frequent IDs for WINB.
Started listening on 9265 kHz, fair with deep fades, so I confess to
switching to the steady WINB webcast for the rest of it after a few
minutes.

Finished at 0400 UT, WINB signs off 9265 kHz, talking over our National
Anthem, the "Star Spangled Banner", which is equivalent to flag
desecration; treating it like a station themesong (why not talk over:
"Advance, Australia Fair"?) The webcast however continues with music,
"Old Rugged Cross", not to be confused with WJHR.

USA   Miami-Dade Mayoral Candidate to Open International Radio Conference
{B-16 season HFCC requests, wb.}  Co-Sponsored by WRMI.

Jeff White posted the following item on the WRMI Facebook page yesterday.
Note the last paragraph in particular.

Miami-Dade County mayoral candidate Alfred Santamaria will officially open
an international radio conference taking place at the Hilton Downtown
Miami hotel August 22-26.

Nearly 100 engineers, frequency managers and other personnel from
international radio stations in around 30 countries from Australia to
Madagascar and Belarus to Hong Kong will convene in Miami for a week to
coordinate shortwave frequency schedules in order to avoid mutual
interference problems. The meeting is known as the High Frequency
Coordination Conference (HFCC), and it takes place twice each year in
different locations around the world. This is only the second time in the
organization's 26-year history that it has met in the United States, and
the first time in Miami.

Stations participating in the HFCC Conference include government-owned
broadcasters such as the Voice of America, Radio France International and
Radio Japan. They also include religious broadcasters like Trans World
Radio, EWTN Global Catholic Network and Adventist World Radio.
Representatives of government regulatory agencies such as the FCC will
also be in attendance. The conference is being co-organized by locally-
based commercial station Radio Miami International and Broadcast Belgium.

"We think it's significant that a worldwide radio conference like the HFCC
is taking place in a world-class city like Miami which has so many
international ties," said Jeff White, General Manager of Radio Miami
International and Chairman of the HFCC.

Among the items on the agenda for the HFCC Conference is the first-ever
presentation of a new digital shortwave receiver capable of picking up
stations from around the world in crystal-clear quality.

VANUATU   3944.2  R. Vanuatu (pres.), Sunday Aug 14, as usual on the
weekend, I checked this frequency to see if I can hear the normal open
carrier of RV that they leave on after usually ending their audio
programming about 1015* UT or so. On the weekend Japan ("RN2") signs off
at 0900* UT, leaving the frequency clear for RV.

Very surprised today when I tuned in at 1232 UT and heard definite audio;
YL announcer playing EZL music till 1300 UT, when most likely news till
1311 UT. Later checked at 1342 UT and had possible religious program and
religious music(?), but too weak to be sure; 1401-1407 UT seemed to be
news again.

The whole time was not strong enough to make out the language, but assume
is RV based upon unique frequency and clearly I was not hearing Japan.
Extremely rare that I hear audio here during this time period! My local
sunrise was at 1325 UT.

[later]
Something new is happening with Radio Vanuatu.

Seems like a new schedule is now in place. Aug 15, on 7260 kHz, heard them
long after they recently had been ending their normal programs, with audio
stopping at about 1015 UT. Second day of their new extended schedule.

Today from 1326 to 1329 UT, with C&W type songs; faint, but clear ID for
"Radio Vanuatu" at 1331 UT (brief audio clip attached); 1335 to past 1400
UT seemed like an OM being interviewed by YL, with him speaking at length;
poor, but positive is RV; QRM from China (PBS Xinjiang). Still needs more
monitoring to confirm just what the new schedule is.
