ALBANIA   Radio Tirana will leave Mediumwave and Shortwave.

Das Update von Astrit Ibro:
leider muss ich "Ja" sagen. Wir haben gestern eine Information aus dem
Generaldirektorium erhalten, in der es heisst, dass die Kurz- und
Mittelwellenanlagen in Shijak und Fllaka Albanien geschlossen werden, weil
sie alt, unwirtschaftlich sind und keine Sendequalitaet garantieren

Unter diesen Moeglichkeiten werden wir das Internet-Potential ausnutzen.
Bald sollen wir unsere Internet-Seite fuer alle 7 Fremdsprachen schaffen.

Zum Glueck werden wir in 7 Fremdsprachen weiter senden:
via Internet und via Satellit.
(via Christian Milling-D, A-DX March 22)

Radio Tirana will leave SW and MW end of March 2017.

Christian Milling wrote on the WRTH  F_B group:
Astrit Ibro confirmed: Radio Tirana will leave SW and MW end of March.

- - -

This is a real shame and another case of yet another station going out
with a whimper (well, to be technical, they can't even manage a whimper
nowadays on shortwave).

I think I have recently discussed on dxld how Radio Tirana was one of the
great reasons why I caught the SWL bug. In 1991, I heard RTSH loud and
clear in their final days of a dedicated broadcast to Australia and
received a large amount of correspondence for a number of years, such as
postcards, the famous pickaxe and rifle lapel badge, tourism brochures and
letters advertising the latest volumes of Enver Hoxha's and Ramiz Alia's
reflections.

Not long after that, communism fell and RT became gradually harder to hear
over the years. The unsolicited letters dried up too, which I kind of
missed to be honest! The civil emergencies of 1997 were well covered by
foreign news agencies but RT gave a local perspective on the troubled
situations in Albania at the time. Despite the anarchy, RT was only closed
for a couple of days.

Ahhh the memories! I might see if I can find that old RTSH pickaxe and
rifle badge and Albturist pamphlets!
(Brian Powell, Sydney Australia, dxld March 23)

BRAZIL   5969.96  New Brazilian station? heard via webSDR Radio Sao Paulo

Hola Manuel, esta emisora la he captado esta tarde, al parecer la emisora
que emite musca non-stop es Scalla FM, por lo menos me ha parecido
entender eso en la identificacion, de todas maneras he comprobado, con
Scalla FM, comprobando su emision on line y no estaban en paralelo, pero
el tipo de musica non stop era muy parecida y la identificacion
identica.Un saludo desde Pamplona-Espana, captando la emisora a traves de
SDR- Pardinho Sao Paulo (Brasil).

New station ? - a station is on air in the frequency that previously
occupied Radio Itatiaia, Belo Horizonte, 5969.96 kHz, this station is
transmitting music continuously, specially classic music, whit some
identification such as something like: "Cala FM", "94.9 Sao Paulo".

Perhaps is the same site and transmitter of Radio Itatiai, but the
programming is completely different to the Radio Itatiaia. Heard March 21
at many hours in the air. Signal 35433 to 25422.
"voce esta ouvindo a Radio Itatiaia" - "A Radio das Minas" (DBS 18)

Log 5066.4 - songs (African / Christian?)

... it took me a while to figure out some details at least ...

5066.4 kHz, 1830-2017* UT on March 23. No trace of modulation till about
1945 UT, songs since then, with only very short announcements (the last
one by female just before sign-off). Melodies let me think it's a West
African station, little instrumentation, gospel-like in parts - or just
"local music"?

Radio Candip not hear for how many months?
Maybe six, or more? Even approximate dates of stations' disappearances are
somewhat more difficult to find out (in one's mind or somewhere else) than
those of reappearances...

sprengung-berlin.html>

From someone who sneaked in particularly close:

It is especially remarkable that the FM transmitters had been turned off
only 27.5 hours before. I think that's a new record for Germany.

Hereby the transmitter station is now gone completely, after the 603/693
kHz antenna has been removed in 2015 and the longwave
Dreieckflaechenantenne already in 2004.

No word about the transmitter building, but the most likely scenario is
that it will simply left abandoned and slowly rot away now.

Here are some photos from 2003:

And some more from the FM equipment which sat in a container immediately
at the mast; I don't know how they dealt with this stuff now:

GERMANY   Shortwaveservice Newsletter 25. Maerz 2017

Morgen beginnt die Sommersendeperiode A17 und leider beginnt sie auch mit
schlechten Nachrichten fuer den internationalen Rundfunk:

Die Kurzwellensendeanlagen in Litauen und Albanien - in letzterem auch die
Mittelwelle - werden stillgelegt.

Heute wurde der tradionsreiche Sendestandort Zehlendorf Oranienburg Berlin
dem Erdboden gleich gemacht. Der 360m hohe Langwellensendeturm steht nicht
mehr.

Diese drei eher traurigen Ereignisse werden wir morgen in unserer
Maerzausgabe von "Radio. Menschen & Geschichten" behandeln.

Ausserdem schauen wir auf ein besonderes Projekt:
Die documenta ist die weltweit bedeutendste Reihe von Ausstellungen fuer
zeitgenoessische Kunst und wird in diesem Jahr ein begleitendes
Radioprogramm produzieren, das auch ueber Kurzwelle ausgestrahlt wird.

Abgerundet wird die Sendung wie immer mit "Vox Populi", der Hoererpost.

Als Besonderheit kommt diese Ausgabe von "Radio. Menschen & Geschichten"
nicht aus dem Studio in Euskirchen, sondern wurde in Vilnius mittels
mobilem Studio in einem Hotel produziert, daher ist der Sound der
Mikrofone anders als ueblich.

An den Sendezeiten hat sich nichts geaendert:
08 Uhr UTC 10 Uhr MESZ auf 6045 kHz via Nauen mit 100 kW
08 Uhr UTC 10 Uhr MESZ auf 7310 kHz via Kall mit 1 kW
10 Uhr UTC 12 Uhr MESZ auf 6005 kHz via Kall mit 1 kW
17 Uhr UTC 19 Uhr MESZ auf 3985 kHz via Kall mit 1 kW

Fuer das Osterwochenende haben wir eine einstuendige Sondersendung in
englischer Sprache unter dem Titel "Bye, Bye Sitkunai" in Vorbereitung.
Sie behandelt die Rundfunkgeschichte Litauens von den Anfaengen in den
1920er Jahren, ueber die Zeit der sowjetischen Besatzung bis hin zum
heutigen Tage, an dem die Kurzwellenanlage ein fuer alle mal still gelegt
wurde. Die genauen Sendezeiten werden wir in einem separaten Newsletter
bekannt geben.

Ansonsten aender sich bei den Sendungen aus Kall-Krekel im Vergleich zur
Normalzeit bezogen auf die Lokalzeit in Mitteleuropa nicht viel.
Hier der Ueberblick:

Sendezeit  6005 kHz: 09-22 MESZ
Sendezeit  6085 kHz: 09-19 MESZ

(via WWDXC Germany, March 21)

Re: 1287 kHz MW reception report.

Thank you, Costa. We are currently testing at 10 kW power with non-stop
music. Tomorrow the power should be increased to 30 kW, and by the end of
the week to 50 kW.

On-air presentation staff are currently being hired, and they will start
appearing with a full programming schedule over the next few weeks.

All programming will be in Arabic to begin with, but we will probably
introduce a few hours of English during the late evenings once the station
is established. As yet we do not have any QSL cards for this station, but
will be preparing some soon. Thank you for your report.

Kind regards,
Ray Robinson

KOREA D.P.R.   Stimme Koreas 70 Jahre - Voice of Korea 70 years.

Liebe Korea- und Hobby-Freunde!
Die Stimme Koreas, der offizielle Auslandsrundfunkdienst der DVR/DPR Korea
(Nord), beging am 16. Maerz 2017 seinen 70. Gruendungstag
(damals als Radio Pyongyang gegruendet).

Aus diesem Anlass habe ich eine Video-DVD mit Beitraegen in sechs Sprachen
erstellt, die gerne bei mir angefordert werden kann. Weiterhin habe ich
die Hoererbriefkastensendungen der letzten Jahre, soweit ich diese
herunterladen konnte, zur Verfuegung gestellt.

Alles kann man von meiner Web.de-Wolke herunterladen:

LITHUANIA    The next One:  Bye, bye Sitkunai bcast center Lithuania.

Erfahren wir dann morgen, ob die Tschuess-Sendung direkt aus Sitkunai
kommt oder doch einen Umweg ueber ein anderes Relais nehmen muss. Dafuer
sind zumindest schon mal ein paar Gespraeche im Kasten und auch ein paar
Fotos aus Sitkunai:

<http://bit.ly/2nNfJqx>   18 pictures from SW / MW bcast center Sitkunai.

Aaaalso: Die letzte Sendung, die aus Sitkunai auf Kurzwelle laufen wird
ist die Sendung der NHK World Radio Japan Tokyo in Russian, morgen frueh
Saturday March 25, zwischen 0430 und 0500 UTC auf 5910 kHz.

Eine Extrawurst fuer uns Radiobekloppte wuerde man zwar gerne braten, aber
der Aufwand ist zu hoch und es ist bei Adhoc-Relays in der Vergangenheit
zuviel schief gegangen, dass es schade waere, wenn auch die Nummer in die
Binsen ginge.

Dennoch haben wir eine Sondersendung in englischer Sprache
zusammengeschustert, in der ein ehemaliger Mitarbeiter von Radio Vilnius
(englischer Service, heute Nachrichtenchef im TV) ueber seine Zeit
waehernd der Wende erzaehlt.

Sigitas Zilionis kommt zu Wort und berichtet ueber die Radiogeschichte
Litauens im allgemeinen und Sitkunai im speziellen und Rimantas Pleykis
berichtet ueber den ersten und einzigen Privatsender in der Sovjetunion
"Radio M-1", den er mitgebruendet hat und stellt sein aktuelles Projekt
"Radio Baltic Waves International" vor, dass auf Mittelwelle 1386 kHz noch
aus Sitkunai und spaeter im Laufe des Jahres von einem anderen Standort
gesendet werden wird. Dazu ein paar Audioextrakte aus vergangenen Zeiten
und litauische Musik.

Was noch fehlt sind Eure Hoerergeschichten; Erinnerungen an die Sendungen
"von hier". Gerne koennt Ihr die mir noch schicken und ich baue sie in die
Sendung rein, entweder per Textform oder als Audiodatei.

Die Sendung wird voraussichtlich am Osterwochenende laufen (also rund um
den 16. April). Es wird eine Sonder-QSL Karte geben (wenn mein MS-Paint
wieder funktioniert). Die Senderstandorte und Senderichtungen werde ich
kurzfristig zusammenkoordinieren, mal schauen, was das Portemonnai als
maximale Moeglichkeit hergibt. Wuensche an Sendezeit werden gerne
entgegengenommen.

Viele Gruesse - Christian

PAKISTAN    Re: 7265 / 7266 kHz ? Azad Kashmir Radio ?

Need to ask for your assistance again. Checking 7265 today (March 19) at
1224 UT (during the time with no QRM), found no signal at all on the usual
7265, but had an open carrier instead on *7266.0* kHz.

Any chance that could have been Azad Kashmir Radio?
Perhaps nothing, but will try to check again tomorrow.
As always, appreciate your help.

[later]  Will try to check all the Pakistan frequencies on Thursday
(March 23), as it's a National Holiday - "Pakistan Day"
or "Pakistan Resolution Day."

Re: Radio Pakistan A-17. ... as far as I am aware all of the Radio
Pakistan transmitters at Islamabad (Rewat) are off the air, and have been
for some time now. I have seen occasional reports about the clandestine
Voice of Jammu & Kashmir Freedom Movement being heard on 7265 kHz (see
page #512 for details in the WRTH), but not recently.

But this station has no connection with R. Pakistan, and is never listed
by them. Possibly the transmitter used is at Islamabad - as in the WRTH -
but I have no definite information.

Two new 100 kW SW transmitters were delivered to Karachi (Landhi) two or
three years ago* at the same original site first used by Radio Pakistan
which had two 50 kW and two 10 kW SW transmitters. These were stripped out
and the site made ready for the two new ones*, but they have not been put
on air. Last year I saw a quote from a Pakistan government minister asking
those involved with the site to 'hurry up, and get it on air'. I was also
informed last year by two sources that tests were planned, but if they
took place I didn't hear them.

Just two transmitters would not be enough to broadcast the schedule we
have seen, unless just one transmitter per service was operated on one
frequency at a time. Maybe the schedule has been issued in expectation.
It's a question of waiting to see.
(Noel R. Green-UK, dxld March 25)

* re Karachi Landhi subject; that connection and order to Thomcast/Thomson
and Ampegon happened in years 2004-2006, but  delivery of new equipment
never realized, except scrapped the two old txs and all the tall SW
antenna masts there after December 2005, accorind Google Earth images.

We learned by the Ampegon Schifferstadt antenna technician, that the txs
and antennas erected on late Sines Portugal site instead, but latter
scrapped than few years later too. (wb)

SOLOMON ISLANDS   5020, SIBC Honiara, at 1131-1201* UT on March 23. Pop
Pacific Islands songs; DJ in Pijin; ad in English with pricing for various
mobile phone data plans and also ad in Pijin for mobile phone service;
evening devotional in English, which was cut short at 1201* UT. Seems they
have again ended their extended broadcasts, at least for now.
(Ron Howard-CA-USA, DXplorer via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews March 23)

5020, S.I.B.C. at 1146 UT, Island music, woman in Tok Pisin, 1153 UT
Christian devotional message and prayer, 1200 UT woman with ?You have been
listening to the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation, Radio Hapi
Isles.?, frequencies and meter bands. Closing with national anthem. Poor,
March 18.
(Harold Sellers-BC-CAN, dxld March 22)

SPAIN   17855, on March 26 at 2148 UT, no signal from REE on reactivated
A-17 frequency for North America. Should have checked earlier from *1400
UT on weekends, but if still on until 2200* UT, not propagating at all
today.

For elsewhere, new 15520 kHz ex-15500 is VP audible, and 15390 kHz is a
JBA carrier. Should have checked 17715 kHz, fourth frequency, in case
17855 kHz was just off, but from 19mb propagation, doubtful to hear it on
16.

17855 kHz should be VG normally from *1800 UT on weekdays, but subject to
fade-out before sign-off. If there can be only one frequency for a 4- or
8-hour span, it might be more prudent to employ 15 or even 13 MHz band in
this case; or if two, 17 in our mornings, 15 afternoons.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, hcdx and dxld March 26)

SPAIN   Tonight noted REE Noblejas on three channels on air, not strong
though, here in Europe or on remote SDR units in MA-US and Detroit-MI-US.

Best signal in east coast North America: on surprisingly 15520 kHz,
(backlobe of 110 degrees to NE/ME ??? )
S=8 nice Spanish music, at 2145-2200 UT on March 27.

17855 kHz S=7 or poor -89dBm, 290 degrees azimuth,
requested on ITU / HFCC database.

17715 kHz threshold very tiny poor, meant towards SoAM at 230 degrees.

Maybe powerhouse signal in Argentina and Chile ?  Comments please...

SUDAN   Omdurman Sudan 9505 kHz update.

For several weeks, French/English broadcasts from 1600 UT seemed to be
mostly heavily undermodulated or unmodulated. And I never caught any Hausa
presumably scheduled afterwards from 1800v UT. Currently it seems that
only Arabic is broadcast even before 1900 UT, rather than switching back
somewhat after 1900 UT to 7205 kHz in 41mb. Now at 2055 UT, still Arabic
service on 9505 kHz with strong signal, but modulation/audio level between
tune-in at 1830 UT and now greatly varied between very strong and not much
more than a hum of a few 100Hertz. Time pips at 2100 UT, very faint talk
afterwards.

grrr. Similar signal on 15380 kHz from Saudi Arabia, but Turkey off by
1358 UT.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, hcdx and dxld March 22) now 13635 kHz in A-17 season

TURKEY   9830, on March 26 at 2200 UT, checking perpetual A-season
frequency for VOT English to North America, nothing! But cuts on late at
*2201:23.5 UT, not with opening newscast but music on 9830.028 kHZ,
typical offset-plus from Emirler. [...]

9770, on March 27 at 0110 UT, music on poor signal; checking for VOT
Spanish as now scheduled which was also having transmitter problems
yesterday. Now seems to be // 9870 kHz, but when I go back to 9770 kHz at
0111 UT, it's off! Still problematic.

USA   KJES Deming NM SW plans update.  Press Release.

I wanted to give you a quick update about me and KJES. I thank everyone
for their concern. I have had several setbacks in my health and the
construction of KJES. I am doing better but it is a long road back. The
construction, or should I say the destruction of KJES has been delayed due
to the contractor performing other work on the Former KJES building.
Hopefully this will change soon. I hope to be back on the air from the new
site by this time next year. But that my be a bit short as the FCC and
other powers move at their own pace. I thank everyone for there concern
and good wishes and hope to make some progress in the next few weeks.

DXLD readers will not be surprised by this, altho the license-to-cover may
