ALASKA   TWO ARRESTED IN GEORGIA FOR PLANNING TO ATTACK HAARP
FACILITY IN ALASKA ARRL November 2, 2016

Authorities in Georgia recently arrested two men who said they were
planning to attack the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program
(HAARP) facility near Gakona, Alaska. Michael Vickers, a detective
with the Coffee County Sheriff's Office, told Alaska Dispatch News
that the pair explained to authorities "that God told them to go and
blow this machine up that kept souls, so souls could be released."
"Yes, that news caused a bit of a stir," said Chris Fallen, KL3WX, a
faculty member at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks (UAF), which now
operates the HAARP facility. "I can also confirm that no souls are
stored at HAARP." ...

Alaska Dispatch News reports two people arrested last week in southern
Georgia were planning to attack the HF antenna farm of the HAARP
aurora research facility owned by the University of Alaska Fairbanks

Annie Zak writes: Television station WALB in Georgia first reported
Monday that investigators with the Coffee County Sheriff's Office
arrested Michael Mancil, 30, and James Dryden Jr., 22, on Thursday and
said "the massive amount of arsenal seized looked like something out
of a movie, one where a small army was headed to war."

Michael Vickers, a detective with the sheriff's office, told Alaska
Dispatch News that both men confessed "that God told them to go and
blow this machine up that kept souls, so souls could be released."

In 2008 the HAARP facility was used for amateur radio moonbounce (EME)
tests on 7 MHz; the signals were received by radio hams across the
world including the UK, see

you if you will be able to listen to the signal next Saturday or any
Saturday beyond and send us a report to

Radio Inyabutatu on 17870 kHz. See below.

That's obviously Radio Inyabutatu, on a so far not reported frequency, in
use instead of the earlier planned 15180 kHz.

Such a request for reception reports indicates that the programmer
considers cancelling shortwave due to lack of response. I have in my files
that the shortwave transmissions of Radio Inyabutatu had already been
suspended at least once, exactly a year ago.

INDIA   Go FM way, digital DRM too expensive, AIR told.

Laying out an action plan for AIR, an IIT-Bombay report says short wave
and medium wave services have few takers and must be scrapped

AIR should phase out short wave and medium wave services, accessed through
the once ubiquitous transistors and radio sets, and focus on FM instead,
recommends an IIT-Bombay report while giving a thumbs down to the digital
DRM technology that the public broadcaster is pushing.

With most people accessing radio on their mobiles or car stereos, only a
small fraction of listeners in urban areas use the difficult-to-buy
transistors and radio sets, says the technical audit report on All India
Radio's short wave and medium wave services.

Barely 10 per cent of people, mostly the elderly, in urban localities
listen to short wave or medium wave services, Girish Kumar, professor in
IIT-B's electrical engineering department who headed the team conducting
the audit for AIR's parent body Prasar Bharati, told DNA.

Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) receivers, pegged by AIR as a technology
replacement for Soviet-era worn-out short and medium wave transmitters,
are just too expensive, the report says. Though a DRM transmitter can give
higher range than others, installing a larger number of FM transmitters
can help cover the entire country.

However, AIR continues to replace short and medium wave transmitters in
the country with DRM transmitters even though the technology has few
takers in India, sources disclosed.

"During the audit, I visited prominent electronic stores of Mumbai to buy
a transistor. However, no transistor, radio set or even a DRM receiver was
available there. They are available only in some online sites. But some
people in rural areas are still using decade-old radio sets or handheld
transistors," Kumar said.

"That is why our report had strongly recommended shutting down short wave
and medium wave services for AIR and augment the number of FM towers
instead." This would help in rural areas too where mobile phones with FM
services are increasing.

DRM transmitters, Kumar explained, can offer good range but listeners have
to buy a receiver that could be as expensive as Rs.15,000. "Why would
people buy a DRM receiver to listen to radio when they can do the same on
their mobile phones or their cars?" he asked.

"Even for the newly installed DRM transmitter in Malad, there are barely
any takers, both because of expensive receivers and lack of awareness
about it," he said.

In the 11th Plan, Rs.9.29 billion has been earmarked for AIR to go
digital.

The new channel, AIR Maitree, that broadcasts programmes to Bangladesh is
transmitted through a digital transmitter even though most people in
Bangladesh avail FM radio services on their phones and hardly use DRM
receivers. There is no feedback gathering mechanism to check if AIR
Maitree programmes are being heard in Bangladesh at all, sources admitted.

Audit details:
The audit included field measurements at more than 13,000 locations and
above 9,000 people surveys. Most people do not have a good medium wave,
short wave radio receivers and the quality of medium wave reception is not
as good as FM radio.

In fact, most people interviewed are unaware of AIR's outdated short wave
and medium wave services, the report states.

Barring hilly and border areas, medium wave services should be shut in
metro and all major cities and the number of FM transmitters should be
increased, it says and suggests important programmes on medium wave and
short wave services be broadcast via FM radio.

At present, 145 medium wave and 48 short wave transmitters are located in
125 cities of India. Being from the Soviet era, most of the equipment is
now worn out. Non-availability of spare parts has added to the problem. As
a result, there is poor transmission of signals in most parts of the
country.

So Madagascar World Voice is back on the air. I had not checked the 18 UT

subsequent transmissions on Nov 9. The MWV signal, which is the second

good, equivalent to 17775 kHz KVOH at one tenth the distance, sharing SSOB

NEW ZEALAND   Rangitaiki site, Wavescan #403 by Adrian Peterson-USA.

Radio New Zealand International closes its old analog shortwave
transmitter.

At the end of June, Radio New Zealand International closed its quarter
century old analog transmitter located at Rangitaiki in the center of the
North Island of New Zealand. But first, we go back in time.

It was time for change. The shortwave transmitters in the radio
broadcasting station at Titahi Bay, out from Wellington in the North
Island of New Zealand, were vey old and quite low powered.
Over the years several different locations had been suggested as
a possibility for erecting a new shortwave station that could speak
to the Pacific Islands with a louder voice.

In fact, one specific location that had been given serious consideration
by the New Zealand cabinet was at Waiouru towards the center of the North
Island. The large transmitter complex at Waiouru was operated by the New
Zealand navy and it was suggested that this would be a suitable location
for an additional transmitter installation for the new shortwave voice for
New Zealand. The projected plan for this new location in 1981 called for
four transmitters at 50 kW each.

However, nine more years went by before the new station became an
electronic reality. The location was changed from Waiouru to Rangitaiki, a
change in distance of some 50 miles; and the transmitter complement was
changed from four at 50 kW to just one at 100 kW. A long range plan called
for an additional 100 kW transmitter and a total of four curtain antennas.

The dominion government approved the new shortwave station for Rangitaiki
with two immediate purposes in mind: Growing political instability in some
of the small Pacific Island nations, and the need for adequate media
coverage during the forthcoming Commonwealth Games. The new shortwave
station was readied, and test transmissions went on the air at the end of
the year 1989, and into January of the new year 1990.

According to the well known New Zealander, Arthur Cushen, the new 100 kW
Thomson transmitter Model 2315 from France was officially taken over at
Rangitaiki by the New Zealand authorities on December 6 (1989). At that
stage, there were just two antennas, both TCI high band curtains from
California, and the original concept indicated that the transmitter output
could be split and fed into both antennas simultaneously as needed, thus
giving a wider area of coverage.

The studios for Radio New Zealand International are located in Radio House
in Wellington. The unmanned distant transmitter at Rangitaiki is remotely
operated from Wellington; and there is a digital program feed from studio
to transmitter, a distance of nearly 200 miles.

The brand new transmitter station was officially opened at 0400 UTC,
Sunday afternoon locally, on January 24, 1990, at the commencement
ceremony for the Commonwealth Games, by His Excellency Governor
General Sir Paul Reeves. The inaugural broadcast was beamed to
the Pacific on 17680 kHz and it was reported widely. RNZI printed
a limited edition QSL card of just 100 copies for the occasion.

The Commonwealth Games are similar to the international Olympic
Games, though participants are limited to only the countries that form the
British Commonwealth of Nations, the former British Empire. The 1980 games
were staged in Auckland at the top of the North Island, the largest city
in New Zealand with a current population of 1.3 million people.

Programming for RNZI shortwave is taken from the regular Radio New Zealand
mediumwave services in the YA and ZB networks, and regular daily programs
also are produced by the shortwave staff, which numbers no more then half
a dozen people. In addition, regular daily news bulletins are broadcast in
the local Polynesian languages of the South Pacific Islands.

Just nine months later, beginning on September 12 (1990), the new
transmitter began a month long period of non-stop operation in an attempt
to stabilize its operation. During that time period, this new transmitter
had malfunctioned a total of 89 times since it was taken into service.

A couple of years later, two low band antenna systems were installed;
seven years later again, the transmitter was stuck on 17675 kHz due to a
switching malfunction. There were times when the transmitter was run at
50 kW as an economy measure; and on several occasions the station has
operated overnight as well during cyclone emergencies in the South Pacific.

One astute international radio monitor noted that RNZI ended its daily
transmission on 9885 kHz at 1310 UTC, and then it switched to 6095 kHz for
a brief transmission lasting no more than 5 minutes, as a preparation for
the opening broadcast next day.

On a couple of occasions in November 2001, RNZI conducted a brief series
of test broadcasts during the day on frequencies in the 6 & 7 & 9 MHz
bands, in order to ascertain whether nationwide coverage could be
obtained from a single location in the event of a nationwide emergency.
The experimental frequencies were 6095 kHz & 7205 kHz & 9700 kHz.

A lightning strike on August 30, 2003 put the station off the air for
three months, and during this time Radio New Zealand International was
noted on relay via Radio Australia in Shepparton Victoria.

A new second transmitter, a Thomson digital DRM ready unit Model TSW2100D,
was installed in 2006, and this enabled RNZI to broadcast simultaneously
via the two transmitters in both the analog and digital modes. Several
local FM stations located on South Pacific Islands were thus granted the
opportunity to relay locally the programming in good quality from New
Zealand.

This 10 year old analog-digital DRM transmitter is currently the only unit
on air at Rangitaiki and it is switched from one mode to another, digital
and analog, as is required out in the distant islands. The original
quarter century old analog transmitter was finally switched off for the
last time, on June 30 earlier this year.

However, this may not be the end of the story. The WRTVHB for each year
running from 2013 up to the present time states that a future plan for
RNZI is the installation of a 300 kW analog-digital DRM capable shortwave
transmitter. Let the future tell its own story.
