BOLIVIA   3310  Radio Mosoj Chaski, Cochabamba 0900-0935 UT with yl
14 July.

4716.645  Radio Yura, Yura at 0900 UT on early as was CP Radio San Jose
14 July.

5580.2  Radio San Jose, San Jose de Chiquitos at 0900 to 1000 UT, first
time heard this early. Noted from 2330 UT recently.
(Robert Wilkner-FL-USA, DXplorer July 14)

5952.43  Radio Pío XII, Siglo Veinte. 0000 July 20, 2012. Nice signal with
not only Radio República via Costa Rica off, but no Cuba multi-shadow
jamming for some reason. Kiddie and male ID, flutes.
(Terry L Krueger-FL-USA, DXplorer July 20)

6154.94  R. Fides La Paz was hrd again on July 14 when AIR GOS 6155 kHz
was off the air for two days on July 14 and 15. In addition to AIR on this
channel from nominal 0015 (altho carrier is usually on from 0000) UT, R
Exterior Espana wipes this channel from 2300 to 0000 UT. On July 14, R.
Fides was tuned from 0119 UT using Perseus site in SE England with decent
S-3 signal and with moderate noise and adj channel QRM. Pgming was inst mx
(not typical Andean) and a man ancr, and continued to 0201.5 UT when pgm
ended. From 0158 to 0201.5 UT there was a man ancr mixed w/ inst mx,
presumably with closing anmts, although audio was too muffled for good
audibility. Carrier typically stays on for several min after pgm ends. On
July 16, AIR was again back on 6155 kHz w/ GOS news in English at 0000 UT
and R Fides was buried.

A nice signal from Pio Doce-5952.45 kHz tonight (from 0000 UT t/in) with
the usual summertime static. Santa Cruz-6134.84 kHz even better and Mosoj
Chaski-3310 kHz also in, but weaker.
(John Herkimer-NY-USA, DXplorer July 18)

Being further west, we're propagationally behind you. Sta Cruz doing
nicely. Pio Doce not too strong, but definitely there. Mosoj Chaski is
barely there but should improve. Presumed Fides just beginning to show its
face at 0030 UT on 6154.9 kHz. But yes, with all, summer static is a pain.

BULGARIA   11-JUL-2012 AUTHORIS.TXT REFERENCE TABLE
11-JUL-2012: Replace RBU by SPC Space Line OOD (BUL)

If there's still more on HF in Bulgaria instead of RBU, with brokered
radio programs by Spaceline? Does well be Kostinbrod site near Sofia.
Would be funny, even if IRRS Milano back here would return at the end.
And other relay broadcast outlets from Gavar, Armenia too?

CHAD/ZAMBIA   6164.957 / 6164.997   Chad or not?

Hi everyone, I would welcome opinions please. Since there seems to be some
doubt about whether Chad is back or not, I wonder if it really is a het,
or something else, that is currently spoiling ZNBC2 from Lusaka. I attach
.wav files just recorded around 1930 UT on 14 July, one from ZNBC1 on 5915
kHz, the other from ZNBC2 on 6165 kHz, both equal powered, both situated
in Lusaka, both received at about S=9+10dB, both recorded in Jo'burg.

Note the difference in quality from what used to be identical-sounding
stations. Any ideas what might be causing the whistling noise on ZNBC2?
Theoretically, at this time, so far as I can tell nothing but Chad can be
interfering. All suggestions welcome. Thanks.
(Bill Bingham-AFS, dxld July 14)

ZNBC2 Zambia seems to be heard in Europe now at 2135 UT July 14.
Exact Frequency is 6164.997 ... .996 kHz.

Footprint: Usually RNT Tchad is more 43 Hertz away varying on very odd
frequency, last heard on 6164.957 kHz. But after the coup officers were no
longer heard on shortwave.

"in mid-June we had our listeners in South America say that the programs
must be broadcast over the place in Chile is set for July 31.
Installations in Calera de Tango Santiago Chile are old, and so it
happened again and again in recent weeks to technical outages, so that a
regulated transmission mode can no longer be maintained.

As an alternative transmitter site, the HCJB-office in Brazil and we have
opted for Wertachtal in Germany after testing programs in the first days
of July, proceeded very successfully. What worries us are preparing to
higher costs. But we want to take it in faith and in the expectation that
the necessary funds for these items are donated. The HCJB longtime manager
and co-founder, Dr. Clarence W. Jones, said: "When God gives a company in
order, then it makes even more necessary for the donor."

Due to cost, we will reduce the transmission time for South America of a
half an hour. The programs are at the same time, sent it on a different
frequency, which promises even better reception.

Here are the dates, valid from 1 August:
Brasilia and Buenos Aires Time: 20:00 clock, Asuncion time: 19:00 clock
frequency: 11920 kHz in the 25 meter band. Fifteen minutes before being
sent on the frequency of the program in the Kulina Indian language. After
the German half-hour comes on the same frequency, the Portuguese Radio
HCJB-Brazil. "(Horst Rosiak-EQA, via hcjb Quito Ecuador)

Bandeirantes should disturb not really ...

"Mitte Juni mussten wir unseren Hoerern in Suedamerika mitteilen, dass die
Sendungen ueber die Sendestelle in Chile zum 31. Juli eingestellt werden
muessen. Die Anlagen in Chile sind alt, und so kam es in den letzten
Wochen immer wieder zu technischen Ausfaellen, so dass ein geregelter
Sendebetrieb nicht mehr aufrecht erhalten werden kann.

Als alternativen Sendestandort haben das HCJB-Buero in Brasilien und wir
uns fuer Wertachtal in Deutschland entschieden, nachdem Testsendungen in
den ersten Julitagen sehr erfolgreich verliefen. Was uns Sorge bereitet
sind die hoeheren Kosten. Aber wir wollen es im Glauben wagen und in der
Erwartung, dass die notwendigen Mittel fuer diese Sendungen gespendet
werden. Der HCJB Mit-begruender und langjaehrige Leiter Dr. Clarence W.
Jones sagte: "Wenn Gott ein Unternehmen in Auftrag gibt, dann sorgt er
auch immer fuer die noetigen Geber". Aus Kostengruenden werden wir die
Sendezeit fuer Suedamerika von einer auf eine halbe Stunde reduzieren. Die
Programme werden zur gleichen Uhrzeit, doch auf einer anderen Frequenz
gesendet, die auch einen besseren Empfang verspricht.

Hier nun die Daten, gueltig ab dem 1. August: Zeit Brasilia und Buenos
Aires: 20:00 Uhr, Zeit Asuncion: 19:00 Uhr Frequenz: 11920 kHz im 25

der Kulina-Indianersprache gesendet. Nach der deutschsprachigen halben

JAPAN   Upgrade likely for Japanese broadcaster's disaster warning system.

Japan's National Public Broadcaster NHK is looking seriously at upgrading
its disaster coverage domestically and globally.

According to Mr Takehiko Kusaba from the NHK newsroom, disaster coverage
and reporting has been a vital mission for NHK since 1923. He said as a
public broadcaster his organisation played an important role in providing
accurate messages and information to the public on time.

"We are not satisfied with our coverage of the earthquake and tsunami in
March last year," he said, "therefore we have a few logistic initiatives
to upgrade our coverage on disasters in the future".

"NHK has learnt lessons from the previous disaster and we came up with an
Automatic Disaster Warning System, an Automatic Script Generating System,
an NHK Helicopter Network and a Backup System which will help NHK with its
disaster coverage and reporting in the future. We are also improving our
announcements to urge people to evacuate by stressing a sense of crisis".

Currently NHK has 470 remote controlled cameras nationwide and 14
helicopters at 12 stations around the country.

Mr Kusaba was sharing NHK's experiences and lessons learned from the great
earthquake with ABU members from Asia-Pacific countries attending the ABU
News Group Workshop in Hanoi, Vietnam, hosted by Vietnam Television (VTV).

Global Tuners remote rx in Johannesburg, most days this signal is
dominated (if not obliterated) by co-channel AIR, but reception was fair

Rare Good News - RNW Madagascar site.
I've just learned the good news that the RNW Madagascar relay will
continue operating beyond the end of 2012, as the employees there have
formed a private company. That means there will be no need for any of the
current clients to move to other facilities. I have just received the
draft documents that will be sent out to existing and prospective clients
as I have been asked to check that the English is correct. I was always
confident that the facility would not be closed, given the recent
acquisition of transmitters formerly used at Hoerby in Sweden. The only
question was who would operate it.

6040  Port Moresby was recorded here from 1100 to 1300 UT on July 15 with
good results. Also recorded from 0800 to 1000 and from 1057 to 1215 UT on
July 13. Signals were a steady S-3+ at these dates and times with decent
readability by using USB. At this QTH, 6040 kHz starts to become S-2
around 0800 UT, improving to S-3 after 0815 UT and then significantly
drops off after 1300 UT. Generally programming was man and woman ancrs
with continuing election coverage. There were also frequent remote reports
from the "field".

PNG election result figures.

(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews July 16)

A follow-up to David Ricquish's recent posts on 6040 kHz, but mostly a
confirmation of his posts (from another source).

"NBC have put the Radio Central 10 kW NEC on 6040 kHz (ex-Alotau
frequency) for the election period."

It is located at the usual Port Moresby MW/SW site. The signal is usually
weak here in Australia & even reported weak in Port Moresby today. My
reception of the 10 kW NBC Northern txer on 3345 kHz is MUCH stronger. Log
6040 kHz whilst you can, it won't be around for long.

NBC 4890 kHz Future Plan - Rare good news.

My thanks to one of our very busy members for forwarding this info today.

In 2013 the NBC of PNG in Port Moresby will be looking for a new 25 kW SW
TXer to replace the aging & dilapidated 100 kW txer that operated NBC
National Radio on 4890 & 9675 kHz. I'm pleased to hear that news. If all
goes to plan I'm guessing NBC Port Moresby could possibly return to SW in
late 2013/2014??

From my recollection of events the 100 kW txer operated at 50 kW for a
good number of years & the power output reduced to 25 kW in the last years
of regular usage. So it would appear that their management are happy with
the coverage offered by a 25 kW SW txer.

If any of our members think they can assist the NBC in their quest for an
attractively priced 25 kW SW txer please drop me a line.

RUSSIA   Murmanskaya oblast. Murmansk.
The Murmansk regional radio started tests of the modern digital equipment,
which is on the order of the Russian of the media holding VGTRK was
brought and helped establish the specialists from St. Petersburg. All
equipment from the microphone to the remote control and powerful server -
new, therefore it is not easy to master. Each button should check many
times that during a live broadcast of bringing the process to automatism.
In order to avoid failures. This is very important.

As noted by the leading engineer of the service broadcasting GTRK "Murman"
Vladimir Kazakov: "It is, perhaps, can be compared with the supervision of
the flight of the comet - waiting for her 20 years, here it comes, you're
watching her as exciting phenomenon, and then live with the impression of
the incident. And this is happening here - we're waiting for changes".

And change, of course, will be. Analog signal replaced by digital. This
will improve the quality of the sound, and the audience will appreciate it
after the fact, how will a digital cables, decoders, receivers. This will
be the next step. And they ?????????????????????+ - feel changes much
earlier. Firstly, the computers take on many of the technical functions,
freeing time for creativity. Secondly, increase the storage of records
that you can copy and reproduce an infinite number of times, while
preserving for posterity. The first live broadcast of the new format of
the Murmansk regional radio - already in August.

x.518 kHz, which is usually QRT sign-off around 0455 UT QRT, but 9705er
still further on bcast service, even you then set the notch filter to

switched off at 9500.064 kHz at 0343 UT which leave the channel and
replaced to 9565v kHz.

All this against BBC Persian program broadcast 9500 kHz at 0230-0330 UT
Woofferton-UK, also against AWR and Persian 9505 kHz with 300 kW Moosbrunn
powerhouse at 100 degrees in azimuth. 9505 AWR Persian from Moosbrunn-AUT
is 0330-0430 UT on air.

9565v  BBC Persian then from Zyyi site in Cyprus, S=9+10 dB here in

ZAMBIA   6165.000 exact signal from Zambia by NBC, hear at 0408 UT, S=6,
something very tiny signal up to here northwards to Europe, but still good
reception in the southern winter. Bongo beautiful music, but certainly not
of RNT N'Djamena from Chad, they send irregularly since the last coup
officer.

frequency: Voice of Broad Masses 2nd program in Arabic and Amharic from
Eritrea at 0415 UT July 17, S=6 thin morning. Long gone when the ETH
neighbors jammed, this is probably the Ethiopians discovered these

INDIA   15209.982 as always AIR Panaji from Goa is not exactly on the
frequency. Arabic at 0430-0530 UT, S=6 fair heard in Europe. Today lacked
the sweet Indian music, just endless talks on politics.

latter is only S=4-5 from Al Dhabbaya UAE.

NIGERIA   6089.843 kHz from approx 0500 UT, more than likely heard FRCN
Radio Nigeria Kaduna, and a tiny signal of Dr. Gene Scott on 6090 kHz in

Newstar DR111.
Keith Perron did a review of Newstar DR111 standalone DRM receiver for
Media Network Plus and posted on

Media Network Plus
Victor Goonetilleke in Facebook PCJ Media & PCJ Radio Group
<http://www.facebook.com/groups/48638249355/>  adds to it -

My observations: very similar. Tuning around is very bad and and you have
to stop on a freq and wait 2 seconds for the audio to come thru, as if the
processor is VERY slow. The punch in ..at least closest to it, is a
disaster where you have to change each digit by up or down buttons. eg.
you are tuned to 15235 kHz. To change to 7190 kHz you have to 0 the 1,
then change 5, 2,3,5 and then go to normal position to get the audio. In
all it takes about a minute to do that. If you use the tuning knob, first
you push it in to get to tuing position, select slow, its darn slow other
than to fine tune, push fast tuning, if you tune too fast it will move a
MHz and you have no control over it, good for finger exercises, and you
have to come back and finally when you come to your frequency you see it
on the display but no audio, for which you have to push the tuining/volume
knob back to get the audio.

It is a great radio not for listening pleasure, but to build patience!!!!
DRM: my strongest signal here whether on a DRM rx or analog S-metre is BBC
5845 kHz from Nakon Thailand. On the whip antenna the DR111 had say 70%
with drop out 30%. With a long wire, (not very long overloading,) I get
100% with an occasional palpitation!! All in all as a Stand alone DRM rx
or to be fair by the receiver, even if it is a poorly shaped plastic box
I can't have even full reception with an external antenna of the AIR,
BBC, Vatican transmissions beamed to me. I don't know whether the problem
is with DRM itself or the DR111.

DRM is great when it comes in but to deliver that signal to a $100 or less
rx is DRMs main hurdle. However, even if the DR111 is a failure, it IS
great that a manufacturer even thought of coming out with a DRM
standalone. For $35 I say go for it because you can experience DRM albeit
with dropouts and it has a fairly good MP3 playing input for a USB stick
and FM is quite ok to have in your bathroom or pantry not to miss the news
or have a little mx while you chop the onions. FINAL decision? Still a
long way to go, don't waste $135. My price tag is $25. PS: immaculate
white for the cabinet i a poor choice too.

Japan Radio Co. and Drake.

The NRD-545 listserv has noted that JRC has just announced that it will
not be supporting the receiver with parts or service after Dec. 15, 2017.

(Though with the way stations are leaving the air, a 545 probably will
have little practical use other than as a large paperweight by that date,
five years out.)

The DrakeR8 list notes some ambiguity concerning whether Drake (now owned
by Blonder-Tongue) is still supporting the R8/A/B series. The consensus
seems to be that officially, Drake no longer is supporting the rx, but
that one or more of their service techs still do on their own, more or
less as before. In this case, Drake's discontinuance is probably more
significant in terms of any unusual parts availability, rather than actual
servicing.
