ALASKA   9655  at 1554- UT, KNLS Jun 18 Blasting in with an Elvis Presley
song, but sung by someone else. They then gave the address in Russian:
Station KNLS, Anchor Point, AK and later a POB in St Petersburg. Guess
there's no reason to give more information than that. Chinese also heard
on 9920 kHz with similarly overwhelming signal strength. Next morning
(19 June), 9920 kHz was not on the air, but back on the 20th.
Only 9655 kHz. Dead air at 15:59 UT, before repeating the program
at 16:00 UT. They do have a nice IS. Sure wish more stations still used
them regularly!.

Re: MiAmigo 11845 kHz jetzt On Air.

Christian, - gute Selektion das, 11845 kHz in Yerevan Gavar.
Weit weg nur die beiden 11825 und 11860 kHz Kanaele belegt.

Ueberwiegend in Europa S=9+15dB Signale, auf den Remote Installationen von
Italien bis Liverpool, in Ungarn, Bayern und OE.

Nur BEL/HOL etwas mehr S=9+20dB.

Dagegen in Moskau Russia, bzw. in Nordeuropa nur S=8, kann aber auch an
den genutzen Antennen dort liegen; die Perseusleute in Schweden und
Finnland fahren dort auf 'Holzreifen'-Antennen >passend<
zu dem 900 EURo SDR.

25. Juni 2017 - Sondersendung von Radio Mi Amigo fuer Ron O Quinn.

Spanien - Nach 57 Jahren im Radio haengt Ron O Quinn seine Rock n Roll
Schuhe an den Nagel. Radio Mi Amigo, das ihn im Programm hatte, sendet aus
diesem Anlass ein zweistuendiges Special. Die Sendung wird am 25. Juni von
1700-1900 Uhr UTC auf der Kurzwelle 11845 kHz und in webstreams.

Ron O'Quinn (* 4. Maerz 1943) begann seine Radiokarriere als 16-jaehriger
bei WMGA an seinem Wohnort in Moultrie, Georgia, USA. 1966 kam er nach
Europa, um als Programmdirektor von Swinging Radio England zu arbeiten,
doch das war aus arbeitsrechtlichen Gruenden nur von kurzer Dauer. In
spaeteren Jahren produzierte er Musiksendungen zur Verbreitung ueber viele
unterschiedliche Sender ("Syndication"). Ab 2010 war er durch solche
Programm auch wieder in Europa zu hoeren.

Zunaechst wurde er bei KBC-Projekten uebernommen, spaeter bei Radio Mi
Amigo International, das via Kall auch auf Kurzwelle aktiv wurde.

AUSTRALIA   5055  Australia about to activate. Some news from the north,
in case you were wondering where it's all up to ...

Hi Craig, just a note to advise that we hope to have 4KZ 5055 kHz on the
air by late next week from Innisfail with 1 kW and inverted V antenna. The
holdup has been due to constant rain preventing us putting the support
pole in.

We have had a special QSL card printed and  we do not require return
postage.

"Als Radiohoeren gefaehrlich war" - Satirisches aus Grossbritannien *

Special im Rahmen von 50 Jahre OE1 als Sommer-Serie die Wiederholung von
"Als Radiohoeren gefaehrlich war",

Teil 1 der Sendereihe aus dem Jahr 1989 von Franz Richard Reiter.

Die 1. Sendung der fuenfteiligen Sendereihe ist den Radioprogrammen aus
Grossbritannien in deutscher Sprache gewidmet. Sie bringt vor allem
Satirisches, gesungen oder gesprochen, in Originalaufnahmen aus der
Zeit, als Radiohoeren gefaehrlich war. "Lili Marleen" und "Es geht alles
vorueber, es geht alles vorbei" zaehlten unter den deutschen
Wehrmachtsoldaten zu den beliebtesten Schlagern. London erfand neue
Anti-Hitler-Texte. Gesungen hat sie Lucie Mannheim, die in Oesterreich
und Deutschland sehr bekannt war.

"Wir fahren immer hin und her, wir haben keine Heimat mehr" singt der
oesterreichische Fluechtling Peter Ihle, der spaeter unter dem Namen
Peter Illing ein sehr erfolgreicher Schauspieler war. Der prominente
Schauspieler Fritz Schrecker, ebenfalls Fluechtling aus Oesterreich, singt
das "Nachtwaechterlied" mit neuen Texten. Der oesterreichische Fluechtling
Martin Miller singt eine neue Zeitstrophe zu Nestroys "Kometenlied".

Georg Weidenfeld, spaeter Lord Georg Weidenfeld, der spaeter zu den
bedeutendsten Verlegern Europas zaehlte, berichtet ueber den britischen
Abhoerdienst, dem "Monitoring Service", bei dem er beschaeftigt war.
Ernst Gombrich, spaeter einer der bekanntesten Kunsthistoriker weltweit,
erinnert sich an seine Abhoertaetigkeit in der BBC. Sir Hugh Carleton
Greene, der Bruder des Schriftstellers Graham Greene, war Leiter der
deutschsprachigen Abteilung der BBC. Er erlaeutert die Prinzipien der
BBC-Programme.

BRAZIL   9724.869, at 0411- UT, Radio Evangelizar Curitiba
(ex Radio RB2*), on June 18.
Good reception here with minor static spashes. All heard very well
using my SW directed DKAZ antenna (better than a NW/SW ALA 100 and NW
directed BOG).

{RB2 - now Radio Evangelizar, Curitiba PR.
* acc Rudolfo Grimm in Brazil: now Radio Evangelizar, Curitiba PR.}

Lovely EZL Brazilian vocals. Not // to Radio Aparecida. Possibly an ID at
04:14:45 UT. Much stronger on // 11934.954 kHz with armchair copy (listed
with same power of 10 kW and 20 deg azimuth). Also heard on 6040.350 kHz
(10 kW/20 deg as well). This is fun! Opportune that Glenn Hauser mentioned
this in his June 17 - 18 logs that Radio RB2 is no more, and that these
frequencies are now occupied by this station's name.

11815.025, at 0443- UT, Radio Brasil Central, June 18. Fair to good
reception of EZL Brazilian vocals. Not sure whether conditions are
deteriorating as we're getting closer to LSS here in the far north. It's
9:45 PM and still bright out! The sun won't for at least another half
hour. I can actually hear their // frequency of 4985 kHz which is covered
smack on top with RTTY, but if I use side band and notch out the one end
of the RTTY, I can hear the same music. How's that for technical DXing !

11855.610, at 0334- UT, Radio Aparecida, June 18. Excellent reception with
a song, 'Moya Aparecida'. Not sure what that means in Portuguese, but
interesting that if it was in Ukrainian, it would mean 'My Aparecida'.
Many mentions of Aparecida as well during speech portions. There must be
quite the pipeline into Brazil from Masset, as that country is often very
well heard.

Parallel to weaker (but still well heard) 9630.021 kHz with listed 10 kW.
Vatican news at 03:45:45 UT. I think that I can also hear the 49 meter //
on 6135 kHz. Seems on channel, despite lists that suggest off channel.
Turning both Perseus receivers on, I'm 99% certain that it is the same
station, and on-frequency on 49 meters. 49 meters is listed with 25 kW and
an azimuth of 30 degrees.
(Walt Salmaniw-BC-CAN, on Masset-BC-CAN exp. via DXplorer June 3)

11764.573, at 0452- UT, Super Radio Deus e Amor on June 18. Fair to good
reception with ID at 04:54 UT by a male speaker in Portuguese, then on
with a woman. Not sure her topic. Note most Brazilians are off-channel,
making them easier to identify. No parallels noted.

Masset SW loggings from 18 June to 2 July 2017.

Having just returned from Masset, I'm happy to report that DX is alive and
well when one can get away from the noise. Although conditions were about
average for summertime, I nonetheless had a nice time DXing, taking
advantage of near zero noise levels. With the exceptionally long days,
I used it to advantage, replacing 3 coax runs with very high quality,
exceptionally durable and waterproof heavy military 50 ohm coax cable,
and what a difference it made!

The 6160 kHz relay of Radio 1 Goose Bay via transmitter at St. John's has
been missing for about 4 days. Please advise what the problem is, what
steps are being taken to restore it and when this is expected to be back

Please forward to the appropriate person if necessary.

Could it be that they have shut off the transmitter to see if anyone
complains (particularly from the target area)?

[also]  Hello: I'm writing to ask if the CKZN shortwave transmitter on
6160 kHz, which relays CBC Radio One Happy Valley - Goose Bay's CFGB-FM,
is off the air or operating with reduced power.

Reception is normally fairly good here in New Brunswick during darkness
hours but I have not heard CKZN in the past few days. Others elsewhere in
North America are also reporting no reception. Hoping to hear that the
problem with CKZN is only temporary. Thanks.

ERITREA/ETHIOPIA   I noticed as well that 7160 kHz from around 0310 UT is
carrying a programme as well. It is hard to get the language or an ID but
my guess it is Asmara ERI as well ... will keep an ear on that frequency
and keep you posted.
(Tarek Zeidan-EGY SU1TZ, dxld June 24)

Last night (June 23, 1630+ UT), Asmara ERI was definitely on 7160 kHz, but
not on 7180 kHz, weaker than usual/expectable and jammed. In the past, the
two transmitters often had significantly different signal strength in
Euro. Basically 7175v kHz being the stronger one and 7146etc kHz, the
weaker one.

VoBME heard on 7180 kHz again today June 25, not on 7160 kHz as a few days
ago. Fairly strong signal and jammed in the usual manner with "white
noise" until 1700 UT. On a Web-SDR in the Middle East I could make out a
schedule of roughly 0330-0700 UT, 0930-1100 UT, and from somewhat before
1400 until 1830 UT.

FALKLAND ISL/ISLAS MALVINAS   Newly released report on Radio Atlantico
del Sur.  19 May - 15 June 1982.

"Last week the Ministry of Defence released a further batch of
documents to the British National Archives relating to the Falkland
Islands Conflict (Operation Corporate). One document in this batch
covers the role of psychological operations. Although much has already
been written on this subject, the document provides new details
regarding the planning of psychological operations and the
difficulties experienced. Lessons learned are outlined in the paper
reproduced below."

A lot of the paper is about Radio Atlantico del Sur.
Station manager was 'Neil ffrench Blake>

As I've posted before Neil published a fascinating e-book based on his
work in psychological warfare, after Atlantico del Sur he went on to
run for several years Voice of Khmer for opposition groups to the
Vietnamese installed goverment of Cambodia covertly financed by the
CIA.

Accordingly a case was submitted on 28 April 1982 under the codeword
MOONSHINE to set up RAdS. It was proposed that a BBC transmitter should be
taken over in Ascension Island for the duration of the broadcasts (4 hours
daily) and that the broadcasts would be prepared in London and transmitted
live (via satellite and land line links to the transmitter). Eventually on
18 May 1982 the project was approved by the Cabinet and the first
broadcast made on 19 May 1982 between 2300 hrs - 0200 hrs Z. During the
period 28 April - 19 May, the initial broadcasting team was recruited and
trained.

Between 19 May - 15 June 1982 when the project ended, 47 broadcasts were
made, three hours each evening between 2300-0200 hrs Z and an hour in the
morning between 0830-0930 hrs Z.

[also]
Neil ffrench-Blake was a psychological warrior, working as a consultant
for the British and American Governments. As an expert in clandestine
radio stations he played an integral part in the CIA's ten year operation
to drive the Vietnamese out of Cambodia which is how he came to meet the
West's ally at the time, Pol Pot of the Khmer Rouge. Neil draws on all his
real-life experiences to tell a fictionalised story of suspicion,
corruption and duplicity, which culminates in a daring plot to kill the
leader of the Khmer Rouge.

Neil ffrench Blake is a former BBC producer and journalist who launched
and was Managing Director of Radio 210 ... He was also involved in
psychological warfare radio stations broadcasting to Aden, Afghanistan and
managed ones to the Falkland Islands and Cambodia.

Radio Atlantico del Sur was conceived as a grey propaganda station, that's
one that's not pretending to be something it is not as most of the wartime
ones were, but neither stating who was running the station. Neil ffrench
Blake deliberately chose frequencies close to Argentinian commercial
stations operating on the 31 metre shortwave band so conscripts could come
across it easily. However the British press soon published the fact that
it was being run by the Ministry of Defence using requisitioned
transmitters. Whether some/all of the conscripts were aware of this is not
known as there was no debriefing of POW's which Neil wanted. Some
transistor radios were confiscated from Argentinian troops occupying the
Falklands and the Argentinian chaplain on the island told his parishioners
it was a "mortal sin" to listen to it.

... Today I was visited by my former Chief Engineer, Paul Atkinson and his
wife Trisha, who was formerly a sweet receptionist at Radio 210, together
with engineer Jim Warrack, who helped me during the Falklands Campaign
(Radio Atlantico del Sur) and came out twice to Thailand to help me sort
out my three enormous transmitters (Radio Samleing Khmer) which we used
successfully to drive the Vietnamese out of Cambodia. ...

... One man's journey from the BBC and Radio 210 Berkshire to MI6,
the CIA and Pol Pot ...

... What we thought was special about "The Pol Pot Conspiracy" was that so
little has been written about British psychological warfare operations.

Thanks to Timm Breyel (Malaysia) for posting to WRTH F_B page an official
announcement from NBC (June 29), titled "NBC increases coverage for the
2017 general election."

NBC has reactivated three *medium wave* transmitters. They are at Vanimo
(Sandaun Province), Lae (Morobe Province) and Kimbe (West New Britain
Province), all done with the help of aid from the Australian government.

"He [NBC Managing Director, Mr. Kora Nou] said people should have a clear
radio service on the 'AM' band" and also "He said NBC is continuing to
examine all its transmitters nationwide to see if it can also increase FM
radio and TV coverage elsewhere in the country."

Sad to say the announcement never once mentioned SW radio.
