yes Sir, - um 11.51 UT am Oct 19., schoene argentinische Tangoklaenge.
Die Musik ist gut ausgepegelt, aber die japanisch-sprachige Stimme der
Ansagerin war unter der Grasnarbe zu ahnen.

In Detroit Michigan, dem Nordamerika Ziel Azimuth 348 Grad
ueberhaupt nichts zu hoeren - so um die S=3-4 oder -104dBm, dagegen
im Perseus Netz in Kalabrien und bei der DARC Amberg Bavaria _8015 Unit
ein schoenes S=9 -71dB Signal,

auch Uni Enschede Twente SDR bringt auf 15345.050 kHz
noch ein ge-lockted ebensolches S=9 -73dB Signal.

Am besten aber in Kalabrien Italien, der Sender der RAE Buenos Aires
wandert leicht 4-5 Hertz up und down, im Range von

CUBA    Radio Habana Cuba Announces 2017 Pocket Calendar.

Radio Havana Cuba's 2017 pocket calendar is available already. It shows
the fourth and last portrait of Fidel Castro, which was made for his 70th
birthday in 1996, by Oswaldo Guayasamin, Painter of Iberoamerica.

The image entitled "Fidel with hands" carries the signature and a phrase
from the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, whose 90th birthday was
celebrated last August 13th.

That small work of art was edited by the Spanish Association of Culture
and International Cooperation in Madrid, and the Guayasamin Foundation
based in Quito, Ecuador.

ERITREA   7146.55  Voice of Broad Masses of Eritrea (presumed),

much weaker than 7185 kHz.

7185.0  Voice of Broad Masses of Eritrea (presumed), at 1336 UT on Oct 20.

FRANCE/ALBANIA   216 and 1467 kHz.
As far as I can tell the operation of both Roumoules and
Col de la Madone will cease on Saturday, 23 October 2016.

These are now marked on the online version. Still no change enabling
you to move from the "man at work" image on my webpage onto my
spreadsheets etc but I am told that it won't be too much longer until
that linkage will work.
(Dan Goldfarb-UK, mwmasts Oct 18)

Roumoules, France too?
And both 216 and 1467 kHz?
I don't think so, I just read from Vasily Gulyaev-RUS, that TWR Polish
should be moving from MW 1395{Fllake Albania site} to 1467 kHz at yearend.
(Mauno Ritola-FIN, mwmasts Oct 18)

FRANCE    ? Roumoules and Col de la Madone ?

Dear Christian,
how is the coming reality on LW 216 and MW 1467 kHz channels?
in Nov 2016, or rather from January 2017 ?

FRANCE/MONACO   1467 MW: One (bad) news: Radio Maria France will cease
its broadcasts from the Col de la Madone site, north of Monte Carlo,
on Oct 30.

To listen to Radio Maria will remain the FM frequency 88.2 MHz in Monaco
and especially the RNT DAB and from the Mont Agel. For the moment, I think
the 1467 kHz will remain silent, as the 702 kHz ...
(Ghibaudo-Nice-France; via
Anker Petersen-DEN, DXW #566 via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 19)

Re: France
I have kept the single entry for 1467 kHz daytime in the Inactive and
Closed spreadsheet but I have moved the entry for Roumoules on that
frequency back into the Active spreadsheet.

Within the entries for France Active now sit 5 entries including two
(Longwave and Mediumwave) for Roumoules.

It will be interesting to see how Roumoules serves Poland since all other
current TWR programmes are beamed at North Africa.
73 and 88 Dan (Goldfarb-UK, mwmasts Oct 18)

As far as I can tell the operation of both Roumoules and Col de la Madone
will cease on Saturday 23 October 2016.

It has already been clarified that Roumoules operations have nothing to do
with the cessation of Radio Maria France on 1467 kHz, but who says 23 Oct?

So far I saw only the Christian Ghibaudo item, as quoted at

<http://mediumwave.info/news.html>  which says 30 Oct.

And I would not proceed from the assumption that it is just "for the
moment", considering that the Fontbonne facilities had been dismantled the
year after their closure.

[later]  It will be interesting to see how Roumoules serves Poland
since all other current TWR programmes are beamed at North Africa.

Have they been so clever to strip the antenna of its beam-switching
capability after AM transmissions of TWR English ceased in March 2015,
leaving only the Maghreb stuff on 1467 kHz? That would be quite
surprising.

I think it is save to assume that the antenna pattern can still be
changed.

This takes a carrier break of less than ten seconds and had in the past
been done routinely between the individual language programs. It should be
very unlikely that they will use the Maghreb pattern (220 degr) for Polish
but rather again the old Germany pattern.
(Kai Ludwig-D, mwmasts, via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 18)

re TWR Poland mediumwave service,

azimuth of Roumoules to serve Poland
is in range 25 degr north-westerly corner near Usedom Germany
to 60 degrees on Ukraine / Slovakia border corner, south-easterly.

Capital Warsaw is in 45 degr azimuth direction,
see enclosed screenshot of 2008 year.

the 5 mast directional pattern TWR 1467 kHz antenna,
as well as the smaller 1467 kHz non-directional 40 kW single antenna.

5-mast directionals towards main lobe azimuth

GB & IRL 325 degr
Scandinavia / Eastern Germany 25 degr
Eastern Europe 85 degr
Greece / Albania / Italy 150 degr
Spain, Portugal, NoWeAfrica 241 degr

but directional antenna array extended by 6th favorite azimuth
at 175 degr towards Algeria, Tunisia, westernLibya and Sahara/Sahel zone,
in past decade.

FRANCE   Bretagne 5 of MW 1593 kHz silent.

French station Bretagne 5 has been silent on 1593 kHz for some weeks now
without explanation on their website it seems.

This explanation according to the 'Radio Informations' page of the Radio
Atlantic 2000 website

<http://radioatlantic2000.free.fr/infos>   (translated from French):

Bretagne 5.
Here is information transmitted by Jean-Luc Blanchet, who lives near
Nancy, France:

Bretagne Radio 5, which usually broadcasts on 1593 kHz medium wave, is
silent for several weeks. Musical stream is posted on the website of the
station. On the same site, no explanation concerning the stopping of
medium wave broadcasts.

Therefore Atlantic 2000 contacted Bretagne 5 by 'phone. Without being able
to give a date, our interlocutor told us that the station would return
soon on the air. She said maintenance operations are underway on the
transmitter, following the damage caused by lightning.

(Original in French language): Bretagne 5.
Voici une information transmise par Jean-Luc Blanchet, qui habite pres de
Nancy, en France:

La radio Bretagne 5, qui emet habituellement sur 1593 kHz en ondes
moyennes, est silencieuse depuis plusieurs semaines. Un fil musical est
diffuse sur le site Internet de la station. Sur ce meme site, aucune
explication concernant l'arret des emissions en ondes moyennes.

C'est pourquoi Atlantic 2000 a contacte Bretagne 5 par telephone. Sans
pouvoir donner de date, notre interlocutrice nous a affirme que la station
allait revenir bientot sur les ondes. Selon elle, des operations de
maintenance seraient en cours sur l'emetteur, suite a des degats provoques
par la foudre.

GERMANY   Eigenes Shortwaveservice Kurzwellenprogramm auf 7310 kHz
- nicht mehr Radio 700 Euskirchen ??

Das ist korrekt beobachtet.

RADIO700 war 2002 eine Erfindung des Vereins Buergerfunk fuer Euskirchen
e.V., spaeter umbenannt in Funkhaus Euskirchen e.V.
Der Verein ist 2007 an eine Kurzwellenlizenz gekommen.
Von dort an lief das Programm "RADIO 700" auf KW.

Parallel hat sich in Ostbelgien ein zweiter Verein gegruendet, die VOG
Privater Rundfunk in Ostbelgien, der mit dem Verein Funkhaus Euskirchen
e.V. zusammen das in Ostbelgien per UKW verbreitete gleichnamige Programm
"RADIO 700" (allerdings mit unterschiedlichem Content) produziert.

Mittlerweile liegt der inhaltliche Schwerpunkt auf der UKW Verbreitung in
Belgien. Ich habe im letzten Jahr meine Vorstandsposten in beiden Vereinen
geraeumt, da mir aufgrund eines neuen Jobs keine - fuer eine im
kommerziellen Umfeld noetige Zeit - zur Verfuegung steht.

Der Verein Funkhaus Euskirchen e.V. befindet sich in der Aufloesung, die
Kurzwellenlizenzen werden von mir unter "Shortwaveservice" in privater
Regie zusammen mit Burkhard aus Kall und unterstuetzt von Daniel K. und
Palina M. weitergefuehrt. Die Musikstrecken werden kuenftig mit weiterem
Content angereichert, da braucht's aber noch ein bisschen.

Liebe Gruesse

INDIA   4760/7390  AIR Port Blair is not heard by me for some time now.
I contacted the station today and was informed that they are TEMPORARILY
off air now due to shortage of spare parts.
Their MW and FM transmitters are on air as usual.

Then it is good time to check for clear signals from AIR Leh, which
also operates on 4760 kHz summer at 0130 UT  /
winter 0213-0430 & 1130-1630 UT.

MADAGASCAR   17640  Oct 18 at 1850 UT, irregular African Pathways Radio
is back again about a "hero of faith" in Zambia; 1852 UT African choral
music, ID with sked talkover only for the 04 and 18 UT broadcasts,
1853 UT open carrier, 1854* UT off. (So don't expect MWV to be on the
last 6 minutes of any hour.)
I proceed to check further languages scheduled:

13710, Oct 18 at 2010 UT, poor but definitely in Arabic, so MWV.

11615, Oct 18 at 2100 UT, good signal with KNLS IS and Chinese sign-on
including website clearly enunciated in English,  <www.smzg.org>
but really MWV, and on to praise music in - English!

11770, Oct 18 at 2200 UT, good signal in Arabic from MWV, which is really
called Radio Feda, but I have yet to copy. ACI until 2203* UT from
ANGUILLA 11775 kHz running overtime.

9455, Oct 18 after 2200 UT, JBA carrier, scheduled Chinese from MWV, but
no comparison to previous hour on 11615 kHz.

MALAYSIA   6050 kHz (Asyik FM) // 9835 kHz (Sarawak FM), at 0946-1027 UT
on Oct 21. Prime Minister Razak speaking before Parliament, to deliver the
2017 budget; mostly in vernacular, but briefly:

"If you want to reach the people, educate their children"; his speech was
interrupted by the opposition lawmakers who at one point loudly protested
and caused a ruckus till they finally walked out on the PM's speech;
preempted regular programming; after 1027 UT no longer // ; mostly fair on
9835 kHz, while 6050 kHz was poor. Believe Wai FM (11665 kHz) is currently
off the air (not heard today).

On Mon Oct 17, I found their new schedule for the Radio Australia produced
"English for Business" on 5985 kHz, from 1215 to 1235 UT,
"Lesson 16, A Presentation", full transcript of today's show at
<http://goo.gl/RhAa0H>

believe their schedule for this program will be sometime during the
1200-1300 UT segment, on Mons and Weds. In the past the exact timing
of these programs usually varied somewhat.

Based on some of my recent observations, Myanmar Radio on Yegu Yangoon
5985 kHz, also has the following:

VOA's Special English on Weds, during a portion of 1530-1600 UT.

NHK's "Friends Around the World" on Thurs and Fris, during a portion of
1530-1600 UT. NHK Radio Japan Tokyo also produces a radio drama in the
Burmese language for Myanma Radio , but am not sure of the schedule on
5985 kHz. Appreciate any corrections or additions.

Menschen? Selbstverstaendlich gibt es jaehrliche Ranglisten oder
Meinungsbarometer unter anderem ueber die gluecklichsten Laender oder die

Dabei verwendet man oft Bewertungskriterien wie Grosszuegigkeit, soziale
Beziehungen, Entscheidungsfreiheit, Lebenserwartung, Gesundheitssystem,
Kultur, Bildungssystem, Infrastruktur.

Und doch: Sind die Bewohner der hoechstplatzierten Laender oder Staedte
wirklich die gluecklichsten Menschen der Welt? Oder haengt vielleicht das
"Gluecklichsein" von so vielen individuellen Faktoren ab, dass die Antwort
nicht anders als individuell sein koennte? Wir laden Sie ein, uns Ihre
Meinung dazu mitzuteilen! Wo leben die zufriedensten, die gluecklichsten
Menschen?

Wo und wie moechten Sie selbst leben? Welche sind die perfekten "Zutaten",
die Sie brauchen, um sich irgendwo auf der Welt wohl zu fuehlen? Fuer den
Hoerertag 2016 bei Radio Rumaenien International erwarten wir mit grossem
Interesse Ihre Antworten auf die Frage "Wo leben die gluecklichsten
Menschen?".

Selbstverstaendlich koennen Sie uns auch wahre Geschichten von
gluecklichen Menschen, die Sie kennengelernt haben, mitteilen. Ihre
Antworten koennen Sie uns schriftlich per Post, E-Mail, Fax, im
Internetformular oder via F_B zusenden. Wenn Sie uns Ihre Meinung
muendlich mitteilen moechten, koennen Sie uns auch im Vorfeld

RUSSIA   [exUSSR / former WDXC-UK club]
Radio Moscow Great Britain and Ireland English service 1976 recordings

KSN Tech Topics has uploaded two reel to reel recordings of Radio Moscow's
English service to Great Britain and Ireland recorded in 1976. First is a
21 minute recording of Moscow Mailbag hosted by Doris Maxina and Edward
Diablov. Doris Maxina is on the on air name of Doris Maxin Hart. Put that
into Google and a passage from the book Kremlin Wives says that Doris Hart
was a well heeled English girl who had fallen in love with Communism in
the 1930's. She met Alexei Maxin, chauffeur to the Soviet ambassador, they
fell in love and he took her back to Russia. She recalls giving English
lessons to Svetlana Molotov and Svetlana Stalin.

Listeners mentioned on the programme include John Singleton who edited
the Logbook column in World DX Club Contact for many years.

The second video is a recording of Radio Moscow DX Club followed by
details of evening programmes. This deals solely with amateur radio.

In Garowe hat sich in den letzten Tagen auch jemand dran gemacht, den

Wochen trotz vieler Versuche bestenfalls einen verdaechtigen Traeger
ausmachen konnte, waren gestern (Sonntag, Oct 23) und heute Oct 24 wieder
Sendungen etwa im Zeitraum 0600-0730 UT und heute auch gegen 1400 UT (dann

SRI LANKA   Economic development zone ends the VOA saga in Sri Lanka.

An economic and tourism development zone is to come up
at the 410 acre-Voice of America (VOA) broadcasting facility site
at Iranawila, which caused a major local and international problem
for Sri Lanka during the 1990s, official sources revealed.

The US Information Agency has agreed to return the land to the present
government even before the expiry date of the lease agreement, a
memorandum submitted by the Ministry of National Policies and Economic
Affairs said.

missing from both Spanish frequencies after 0100 UT on Oct 23, and I meant
to check 9515 kHz later that night.

BTW, Alan Roe found that the DX Letterbox show got out of synch again from
its bi-weekly scheduling, confirmed ON this Sat/UT Sun Oct 23-24, so next
one should be Nov 5/6.

But by then, the new B-16 schedule (same as A-16 *) will be in effect, for

RICH McVICAR's QSL COLLEXION.

Fellow connoisseur of the QSL: Although I'd love to have you over for
dinner, after which we'd retire to the den for brandy & QSLs, chances are
that won't happen anytime soon. So, in lieu of that, I've been scanning my
QSL collection and uploading them to Flickr. I'm really happy with how
they're looking. Some of them look better there than in real life! So,
feel free to browse! But you'll have to supply your own brandy.

Oh, yeah, here are the links.

Sender & Frequenzen Nachtragsheft und Bestellung.

Auf der Seite des ADDX-Verlags gibt es seit einigen Tagen ein 46 Seiten
starkes Nachtragsheft mit vielen nuetzlichen Informationen als PDF zum
kostenlosen Download:

<http://www.addx-verlag.de>

Auch kann man dort die 2017er "Bibel" bereits vorbestellen, als Bonus wird
unter allen Hobbyfreunden die ihre Jahrbuch-Ausgabe bereits im Oktober
oder November 2016 bestellen und bezahlen, 10 CDs aus dem Reprint-Programm
der ADDX verlost.

Zusaetzlich werden die direkt ueber den ADDX Verlag bestellten Buecher mit
Briefpost versendet, somit extrem schnell nach Erscheinen bei den Hoerern
eintreffen.

Ich werde wie die Jahre zuvor auch eine Bestellmoeglichkeit via Amazon auf
meiner Webseite anbieten, moechte aber allen A-DXern zur Bestellung ueber
den ADDX Verlag raten, da hier erstmalig direkt die Leute hinter dem
Projekt etwas verdienen und nicht irgendwelche Distributoren und ein
Verlag welcher sich seit vielen Jahren ueberhaupt nicht um dieses tolle
Projekt gekuemmert hat und nur die Namensrechte hatte - inklusive "Wolf
Siebel" der ja schon seit Ewigkeiten nichts mehr damit zu tun hat.

Wer also das Projekt Sender&Frequenzen unterstuetzen moechte
findet hier die beste Bestellmoeglichkeit:

DENMARK   On October 08 the DSWCI had a very successfull
last Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the city of Kalundborg.

39 DX-friends representing 14 nations attended, incl. the following from
abroad:

Victor Goonetilleke (Sri Lanka), Jawahar Almeida (Goa, India), Aleksander
and Valentina Beryozkin (Russia), Risto Vaehaekainu, Arto Mujunen, Heikki
Puranen, Juha and Virpi Tuominen and Henri Ekman (all from Finland), Tibor
(born in Hungary) and Barbro Szilagyi and Per Eriksson (Sweden), Andreas
and Gertrud Schmid, Robert Kipp (born in U.S.A.), Joachim Kornek, Bernhard
Hein, Simon-Peter Liehr, Hella and Karl Helt, Uwe and Suree (born in
Thailand) Volk (all from Germany), Jonathan Marks (Media Network, The
Netherlands), Marcel Rommerts (Belgium), Dave Kenny and Alan Pennington
(United Kingdom).

After the AGM with its reduced agenda, which was excellently chaired by
Tibor Szilagyi, the manager of the Longwave station Jens Christian Seeberg
and his Philippine wife Editha served coffee and tea with specially
designed cakes celebrating the 60 years of the DSWCI!

After an outdoor Group photo, Niels Dreijer gave a lecture about "The
future of the AM bands" and Jens Chr. Seeberg showed us around
on the 89 years old station with a modern transmitter. In the evening
we enjoyed the 60 years Jubilee in the 600 years old Bistro Bispegaarden,
which served delicious local dishes.

Due to the coming dissolvement of the DSWCI, Jaroslav Bohac's annual
contest "The Grand Tour across all Continents" has been taken over by the
Czechoslovak DX Club. But we encourage our members to take part in this
contest 18-27 October 2016. More details in Miscellaneous below.

Thank you for your contributions from all parts of the world to this DX-
Window. Our Russian member Alexander Beryozkin sent tips on October 17 and
wrote:

"Herewith my contribution for the next DW Window.
It's only 12 minutes beyond deadline, so I hope it's not too late.

Thank you very much for the excellent AGM of DSWCI, which we really
enjoyed". When Alexander said Goodbye to me in Kalundborg, he added:
"The DSWCI is a good model for all other DX-Clubs!"
