Reception report. Hello Drita,
I checked the English and German services on 7465 last evening (the 3rd)
and, as expected I heard a "big" signal on a clear channel with no
sidebands. This frequency is serving ALR very well.

My signal strength meter was peaking over 20dB over 9 and in SINPO
I estimate a reading of 55544. Fading was moderate, and not as much as
when monitoried earlier.

Modulation is very "harsh" sounding and with some distortion and it would
be nice if this could be improved upon. Maybe it's in the link from the
studio?

Greetings from sunny but cold Blackpool - only 5C temp and it's April !!!

I wonder: is it a coincidence that a new station - Voice of Talyshistan
(aka Talyshtan) - began broadcasting from Nagorno-Karabakh on 20 March,
targeting the Talysh minority in Azerbaijan. See:

<http://www.rferl.org/content/iran-radio-nagorno-karabakh-azerbaijan-armenia/24941249.html>

Complex strategic relationships at work here. Iran is more friendly with
Christian Armenia than with Muslim Azerbaijan. The Talysh people live in
both Azerbaijan and Iran. Azerbaijan and Iran have a long-running radio
war.
(Chris Greenway-UK, dxld March 29)

Re: New schedule for Voice of Justice / Voice of Talyshistan.

Many thanks to Patrick and Anker for these observations. YouTube user
"Tolishtoni Sado" is posting recordings of all the hour-long broadcasts
(nine so far) at:
<http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQd19cIhemEyfGx4b1da_LA/videos>
complete with a map of Azerbaijan highlighting the Talysh-speaking region,
and confirmation that the station is broadcasting on "AM-9677".

[later]  A Talysh-speaking colleague has now listened to the inaugural
broadcast (as on YouTube) of Voice of Talyshistan / Talyshtan / Talisistan
/ Toliston/etc, and reports that it announces that it broadcasts at "0800,
1200, 1300 and 1500". If this is UTC, the 1200 and 1500 times match what
was reported below.

This was last week, before the time changes. The situation is now
complicated by the fact that, while Azerbaijan (the target area, where
"Talyshistan" is located) observes DST, Nagorno-Karabakh (where this
station is based) does not.

The new station says it is based in Susa (aka Shusha, Shushi) in Nagorno-
Karabakh.

My colleague also reminds me that, in the chaos after the collapse of the
USSR, there was a short-lived "Talysh-Mughan Autonomous Republic" in 1993
before Azerbaijan asserted control over the region. The one-time
"president" of the Talysh-Mughan Autonomous Republic, Alikram Hummatov,
now lives in exile in the Netherlands.

Voice of Talyshistan: info.
Thanks to Victor Rutkovsky for linking to these Russian articles about the
new radio station "Voice of Talyshistan". The first one is an interview
with a Yerevan professor who seems to lead the students that produce the
programs. Unsurprisingly, the feel of the articles is quite different in
Armenia and Azerbaijan. Here is a translation of both articles:

<http://www.golosarmenii.am/ru/20384/world/25661>
(The "Voice of Armenia", a Yerevan newspaper)

March 20, 2013 - At 19:00 on the eve of the traditional Iranian holiday
Nowruz, which marks the beginning of the new year, the radio station
"Tolyshistoni Sado" - "Voice of Talyshistan" started broadcasting in
Shushi in the Talysh language, but also in Azeri. This is the world's
first daily radio program in the language of the Talysh people. Every day
at this time - and repeated several times a day - an hour of Talish
language, poetry and songs can be heard on AM 9677 kHz.

Judging by comments, the broadcast generated the a very positive reaction
both in the Talysh region (in southern Azerbaijan), as well as among the
Talysh living abroad. We asked the well-known Armenian orientalist
Professor Garnik Asatryan to comment on this important event. He is one of
the most respected experts on the history and culture of the Iranian
peoples in the region, which includes the Talysh people.

- Mr. Asatryan, how was the idea born for this interesting project?

- The creation of the Talysh radio broadcast should not be viewed as a
separate abstract fact, seen without the broader context. Previous events
have led to this. In interviews, I have repeatedly talked about the
Armenian humanitarian tradition that arose in ancient times, at the dawn
of the Armenian alphabet. Our ancestors have always had a characteristic
deep interest in the culture of their neighbours. This is reflected in the
monuments from Armenian ancient and medieval times, and later in the
academic tradition in the modern sense. Sufficient to say that several
peoples of the wider region were first mentioned and described in Armenian
chronicles.

This tradition by and large was never interrupted, and in recent history -
in the independent Republic of Armenia - it gained even more impetus. It's
no secret that the only Kurdish radio station in the USSR was located in
Armenia, as well as a Kurdish newspaper. In 1990, a radio station for the
Yezidi people started working, as well as a Yezidi newspaper. And this is
only the superficial level, a result of the Armenian tradition. Our
colleagues in different countries often emphasize the contribution of our
school for Iranian Studies in the preservation and development of the
cultures of many nations in the region, in particular of such nations
without a country of their own, including, for example, the people of
Zaza, the Tats, the Kurds and others. Thus, the radio program "Voice of
Talyshistan" is a natural continuation of the traditions that have emerged
in Armenia from ancient times.

- That is, the "Voice of Talyshistan" is part of such a program?

- Certainly. Back in May 2005, we organized the first international
conference on Talysh studies involving scientists from different
countries, as well as representatives of Talysh intellectuals. The result
of the conference was a collection of articles, "Essays on the history and
culture of the Talysh people". One of the goals mentioned in the final
communique of the forum was to continue Talysh studies and to prepare
activities aimed at preserving the unique culture of the Talysh. At the
same time, the possibility of a Talysh radio was considered.

Since then we have been actively working in this direction. At the
Department of Iranian Studies at Yerevan State University, a master's
program for Talysh studies was set up; the preparation of specialists
began. The result of years of research was a joint monograph of the
department published in 2011, "Introduction to the history and culture of
the Talysh people" which was, by the way, awarded the President's Award of
Iran "Book of the Year" in the category "Best foreign publications on the
history and culture of the Iranian people." The book was presented during
the Second International Conference on Talysh studies in 2011, jointly
with the center "Modus Vivendi".

The creation of a radio station was the logical result of the program to
preserve and promote the unique culture of the Talysh and to strengthen
the friendly relationship between our two nations, linked together for
centuries in history.

- A Talysh radio station raises many questions, everybody is interested in
the details ...

- That's why I decided to dot the i. I hope that our conversation does end
the time of understatement. In general, I expected that, like any pioneer
project, the Talysh radio would cause a lot of gossip - ranging from the
desire to politicize the event to attempts to cash in on its profits.
Already today there are people talking about this, not being informed on
the matter. Therefore, I would like to make clear what the scope of the
project is and who takes part in it. The Talysh radio is merely a cultural
project. If you will, is our gift to our Talysh brethren. It is part of
our academic humanitarian strategy for the conservation of the culture of
the peoples in the region. We believe in our roots and traditions, and we
will never give them up. I see this as a humanitarian mission of our
people in a large multi-ethnic region. At a recent conference on the
autochthonous peoples of the Caucasus-Caspian region in October 2011, a
coordinating council was formed with scientists and representatives of
indigenous peoples. The goals and objectives of the council are set out in
the final memorandum of the conference.

About the creators of "Voice of Talyshistan": It is a joint project of the
Caucasian Center for Iranian Studies and center "Modus Vivendi". Technical
support is provided by the radiostation "Impuls", for which we are very
grateful to its professional staff. The team of the "Voice of Talyshistan"
are Talysh people, speakers of different dialects, as well as employees of
our department of Iranian Studies at Yerevan State University, who work in
Talysh and Azeri studies. I am happy to say that my students, young and
talented scientists and graduate students, are doing an excellent job with
this new activity.

- Please comment on another aspect of what is happening: the inappropriate
response to the creation of the radio station in Azerbaijan. On
Azerbaijani web sites we can read that they supposedly will jam the
transmissions...

- In general, we are used inadequate response from Azerbaijan to a number
of our projects. We have been accused of politicizing our conferences,
cultural events, publications, and so on. Of course, the same accusations
will be heard in connection with this new project. Mostly, Azerbaijan
cares an absurd question - why do we study the culture of a people who do
not even live within the territory of Armenia. Leaving aside the absurdity
of the question in an academic perspective - what else should we study in
Iranian studies, if not the Iranian peoples? I want to simply return the
question to those who ask it. Why are there no conferences on Talysh
studies, why is there no Talysh radio and television in the country where
representatives of this ancient Caspian people do live? I do not think it
makes sense to jam anything today. That will rather cause an even more
positive response among the Talysh people which would be very undesirable
for the Republic of Azerbaijan. First, the radio has a Web site, and each
new transmission is instantaneously made available on Youtube. So with the
current technical possibilities jamming of a radio station is a relic of
the Cold War.

And from Azerbaijan:
<http://www.vesti.az/news/152147>  (vesti "News")

A Talysh radio station started broadcasting in occupied Shusha.

In the Azeri city of Shusha, occupied by Armenia, a radio station "Tolishy
Syado" started broadcasting. It transmits news, social and political
messages in the Talysh language. modern.az reports that based on the
pronunciation of the speakers, the station's employees are Iranians. In
social networks, the news about this radio stations was met with
indigation by Azeri Talyshs.

I can't read Azeri, so I can't check what modern.az wrote. Note that
Shusha is the Azeri name of the same town in Nagorno-Karabakh that the
Armenians call Shushi. It had a joint Armenian-Azeri heritage and was
badly damages during the Armenian-Azeri conflict in 1988-1992. The Azeri
part of the population fled in 1992 when it was conquered by Armenian
forces. It is just 10 km (6 miles) from Stepanakert, the region's capital.

BNR "Horizont" was heard with good signal already yesterday, 6 April 2013,
on 963 kHz. Thanks to Georgi and Ivo for providing the details.

Until 2200 UT, BNR was behind CRI German from the doomed Pori sited (this
relay ends on 15 April for ever). After CRI's sign-off at 2201 UT,
Horizont's news and weather report for 'centralna Bulgaria' etc. was heard
with SINPO 53533 (Tunisia in the background), a clear ID jingle "Horizont"
at 2204 UT. I couldn't check the other frequencies because this was a
specific recording of 963 kHz. I had already heard Horizont on 576 kHz,
however, on 23 March 2013 at 1130 UT (very weak in Leipzig Germany, but a
decent signal on a remote Perseus in Austria).
(Eike Bierwirth-D, dxld Apr 7)

Bulgaria Horizont (Re: Dx Re Mix News #774)
It should be noted that 963 kHz is a different story due to the minority
broadcasts in Turkish which are on mediumwave only. Otherwise BNR would
perhaps have terminated these outlets, too.

Concerning 576 kHz: Last evening it had here in Germany the new
Vidin/Gramada/Vodna transmitter on top of other signals which should have
been Algeria and Spain, i.e. it was not completely clear here. Programming
of course // 261 kHz, here over/under Radio Rossii.

Btw, I understand that the last day of transmissions from CRI Pori Finland
will be April 14.

Received this reply:

"Thank you for your reception report! I have listened to the record. I

CYPRUS   BBC World Service's Cyprus shortwave relay station closed.

<http://www.cyprus-mail.com/bbc-world-service/bbc-world-service-s-cyprus-shortwave-relay-station-closed/20130406>

<http://iwohk.tumblr.com/>
By Peter Stevenson. Published on April 6, 2013.

THE BBC World Service's Cyprus shortwave relay station closed on April 1,
meaning listeners are no longer able to listen to the famous World Service
broadcasts.

Shortwave broadcasts of World Service Arabic will also end by the end of
April.

The closure of the Cyprus shortwave relay station will see the loss of 26
jobs. These are Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Babcock employees who
are funded by the World Service.

Peter Horrocks, director of the BBC World Service, said that the changes
reflected listening trends, as audiences increasingly embrace TV, mobiles
and the internet over shortwave radio.

"The changes are in line with our overall strategic aim of ensuring that
we are able to respond to changing audience needs and invest in the way
audiences consume news," he said.

"Shortwave audiences are declining as radio audiences come to rely
increasingly on medium wave and FM, and there has been a rapid growth of
television and digital media."

The UK government's 2010 Comprehensive Spending Review set the World
Service the target of saving £42m by April 2014. It has already achieved
nearly £30m with the loss of five language services and around 480 jobs.

According to the BBC, World Service English shortwave transmissions will
be reduced to six hours a day, with 1.5m listeners likely to be lost as a
result. Currently, there are between seven and 19 hours of shortwave
depending on region.

The distribution changes - which include cuts to medium wave transmissions
- are designed to save £4.8m in 2013/14. It's a large chunk of the £12m
savings the World Service is targeting in its third phase of cuts as a
result of a 16% reduction to its grant-in-aid.

The World Service first set-up in Cyprus in 1957 when it established the
British East Mediterranean Relay Station (BEMRS) in Limassol, which was
one of the most powerful broadcasting stations on the island.

EGYPT   9720  Radio Cairo booming in to NoAmerica - April 1, at 0215 UT on
9720 kHz, in English: This is an excellent quality signal. The modulation
seems completely normal. I hope this is an indication that they've fixed
their transmitter problem, at least with this program to North America.
(Bruce Fisher-MA-USA, dxld April 4)

Bruce, we all hope that, but to be honest, Cairo has "forever" been
afflicted by this problem, so it's difficult to imagine that something
miraculous has occurred! I know that from time to time, I have also heard
good modulation from Cairo. That usually only lasts the day.

JAPAN   [to KOREA's]  6020 (ex-6135), Shiokaze/Sea Breeze/JSR via Yamata
(Japan), at *1330 UT on April 7; schedule 1330-1430 UT. I doubt that
COMJAN changed frequency due to my email telling them of 6135 kHz being
jammed by CNR1; more likely was time for them to make a move anyway.
Believe they have been on this frequency for several days now.

6020 kHz is a poor frequency choice due to long established broadcasting
till 1400 UT of both R. Australia and CNR8. In the past, after they signed
off, was able to hear Voice of Vietnam 4, but that will now be blocked by
Shiokaze till 1430 UT. Once N. Korea finds them and starts jamming, this
will be even a bigger mess!

The sound cut starts with the main signal on 7200.130v kHz, then 7185.950
and 7214.360 kHz. All are // . Sorry by the time, I came to the 3rd freq
program changed. This is just spuri up and down the main frequency. In the
evening you might hear two programs, just that the old Myanmar tx site has
poor screening and the audio creeps in from the other service.

Re: Myanmar 7200.1 kHz.
Hi Victor, Thanks for posting that nice recording!
On April 4 noted 7200.1 kHz signed off at 1331 UT, after their usual
indigenous theme music. Also heard the lower spur, but did not think to
check on the upper one. Is rare that I have heard it in the past, while
the lower one is often heard here in California.

On April 7 at 1225-1245 UT observed Myanmar Radio Rangoon again on remote
SDR units in Tokyo and Nagoya Japan.

7200.085 kHz fundamental frequency, S=6 just above threshold level, but
Burmese tonal lang could be noted easily.

But spurious today 14.241 kHz apart, on 7185.844 and 7214.326 kHz.

Hi dear Victor and Ron, Re Rangoon Myanmar outlet today.
Japanese remote rx are distance-wise too far away. I couldn't listen

two station peaks on 7200.085 and 7185.837 kHz, this is a spurious

15100 PAKISTAN  R. Pakistan - Txer presumed to be Islamabad. Nepalese at
1020 with the telltale crappy audio. Appears to have signed off around
1045 UT, and also appears to be NF ex 15105 kHz. (unid.)

PAKISTAN   Monitoring yesterday and today (the 4th and 5th) now reveals a
new Radio Pakistan schedule for A-13. This is for the two 250 kW units
API-5 & 6 only - nothing has been heard of the services to So. Asia,

Is this just from listings or do you really hear RRI interfering with
RRI? (Glenn Hauser, DXLD)

Well, SW is a worldwide medium, as one might know by now, and signals
cannot be restricted to one CIRAF or another. When there are plenty of
free channels, as is increasingly the case thanks to all the shutdowns,
there is NO reason not to avoid QRM completely; all it takes is more
astute frequency management, with knowledge of real spectrum occupancy.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld Apr 4)

Yes, right, requested at HFCC A-13 table too: French language service
to Western Europe, and Romanian to ME/NE/NoEaAF.
(Wolfgang Bueschel, ibid.)

Hi Glenn, listen to the 9810 kHz recording here in Stuttgart Germany on
April 8. Both RRI French and Romanian services on equal signal strength
level,

HIT EACH OTHER TREMENDOUSLY.

noted 9690 and 9850 kHz totally free channels, also less adjacent signals

SOMALIA   7120  Radio Hargeisa, full data transmitter/studio card in 12
days for English report and US $5 return postage.  V/s Baldur Drobnica,
Consultant.  Address used: Radio Hargeisa, C/o Konsularische Vertretung of
the Republic of Somaliland, Zedernweg 6, D-50127 Bergheim, Germany.

I have also seen one or two reports where the station has email QSL'ed
directly.  If the Republic of Somaliland ever gets recognized by the rest
of the world, we may be able to send reports directly to the station.  As
it stands right now, I think anything sent directly to Somalia through the
post will disappear and never be seen again.

AM signal with the lower sideband suppressed. Both station had to be spot
on in frequency, as I detected no heterodyne audible or SAH. The WBCQ
signal was enough stronger than the BBC, that the program was listenable,
and all but covered the high side component of the BBC transmission.
During fades of the BBC signal, some audio from WBCQ is copyable, but is
well down from the upper side. Is this non-symmetrical transmission
intentional, or did I find an anomaly?

Carrier+USB from WBCQ (except full AM on 7490) is intentional in that they
are using converted military/commercial transmitters. If they really
wanted to avoid BBC they would go to a completely different frequency.

re 15420 kHz co-channel WBCQ / BBC.
Listen to the terrible co-channel signal here in Europe, noted on various
remote units. Taken a recording at Stuttgart, listen to mp3 file attached.
And see screenshot of WBCQ peak, 15420 minus 49-50 Hertz heterodyne today.

I checked the remaining 19 mb EMPTY channels on EUR target:

25 free channels on 19 mb

Nachruf Dr. Anton J. Kuchelmeister DK5TL

Im Alter von nur 62 Jahren ist der langjaehrige AGDX-Vorsitzende
Dr. Anton J. Kuchelmeister nach langer und schwerer Krankheit
am 18.03.2013 verstorben.
Mit ihm verliert nicht nur die AGDX, sondern viele Hobbyfreunde aus nah
und fern, einen hoch gebildeten, klug ueberlegenden und in seiner
Bescheidenheit grossen Menschen.

Geboren wurde er am 25.01.1951 in Oberschwaben. Er wuchs mit sieben
Geschwistern auf. Um die Jahre 1969 bis 1972 studierte er in Stuttgart und
erwarb 1969 die Amateurfunklizenz mit dem Rufzeichen DK5TL. Seit diesem
Jahr gehoerte er dem DARC Ortsverband Stuttgart P11 an. Massgebend war er
am auf Aufbau der Amateurfunk Klubstation an der Uni Stuttgart beteiligt
und der Gruendung des Uni AKAFUNK Funkerklub DK0SU im Jahre 1974. Anfang
1981 zog er berufsbedingt nach Muenchen um.

In die Assoziation junger DXer e.V. (adxb-DL) trat er im Jahre 1970 mit
der Mitgliedsnummer 096 ein. Seit 1992 gestaltete er als stellvertretender
Vorsitzender engagiert und mit seinem Wissen die Geschicke des Vereins
mit.

Mitte der 90er Jahre beteiligte er sich aktiv an der Betreuung des
Standdienstes auf der Messe HOBBY+FREIZEIT in Augsburg, an dem die adxb-DL
mit einem Stand vertreten war. Massgebend war Anton an der Erstellung des
adxb-DL Mitteilungsblattes "qso" beteiligt und wenn es noch weisse Flecken
gab, Anton schaffte es immer sie mit wertvollen Informationen zu fuellen.
Ihm war es stets wichtig, dass die adxb-DL ein eigenes vierteljaehrliches
Mitteilungsblatt an die Mitglieder herausgibt.

Auf der AGDX Delegiertenversammlung am 15. Juni 1996 in Bad Homburg
uebernahm er den Vorsitz der Arbeitsgemeinschaft DX e.V. (AGDX). Im
Positionspapier "Quo Vadis AGDX" wurden Weichen fuer die Zukunft gestellt,
an denen Anton massgebend beteiligt war. Durch sein zielstrebiges Wirken
war eine Aufbruchsstimmung spuerbar. Waehrend seiner Amtszeit zeigte er
Praesenz in seiner Eigenschaft als AGDX-Vorsitzender bei diversen
Veranstaltungen, wie der adxb-OE Mitgliederversammlung, dem SWLCS Camp in
Merchweiler, bei der Ham Radio in Friedrichshafen, usw. und war dort ein
beliebter Gespraechspartner. Dabei ging es ihm zu hundert Prozent um die
AGDX, seine Person stellte er dabei stets in den Hintergrund. Schnell
wurde klar, Anton war zur richtigen Zeit an der richtigen Stelle. Er lebte
die AGDX. Wuerde ohne sein Wirken die AGDX noch existieren?

Als im Dezember 1998 die AGDX-Zeitschrift "weltweit hoeren" nach 25 Jahren
das letzte Mal erschien, war Anton an den schwierigen Verhandlungen mit
der ADDX ueber die Herausgabe einer gemeinsamen Zeitung beteiligt. Mit
sein Verdienst war es, trotz des starken gegenseitigen Misstrauens, ein
Ergebnis zu erzielen, das einem Burgfrieden glich. Die Herausgabe von
"Radio-Kurier mit weltweit hoeren" ab 1999 war der Beginn einer engen
Kooperation zwischen ADDX und AGDX, die trotz anfaenglicher Bedenken und
auch kritischer Stimmen, seit 14 Jahren anhaelt. Anton, als verlaesslicher
Partner und Vorsitzender der AGDX, hat massgeblich zu dieser positiven
Entwicklung beigetragen. Ihm ist es verdanken, dass sich AGDX und ADDX bei
der Herausgabe von "Radio-Kurier weltweit hoeren" auf einer Ebene bewegen
und die AGDX ueber die Jahre als starker und zuverlaessiger Partner vom
Vorstand der ADDX geschaetzt wird.

Das gewinnen von neuen Mitgliedern lag ihm am Herzen. Ihm war wichtig, bei
einer Anfrage eines Interessenten es nicht nur bei einem Kontakt zu
belassen, sondern eine Mitgliedschaft in einem der AGDX Klubs schmackhaft
zu machen.

Auch innerhalb des EDXC, in dem die AGDX einen Beobachterstatus hat,
brachte sich Anton mit Ideen, Vorschlaegen, auch mit kritischen
Anmerkungen, ein.

Im letzten telefonischen Kontakt, waehrend seiner schweren Krankheit,
hatte Anton immer noch die Hoffnung, dass es ihm gesundheitlich wieder
besser geht und betonte immer wieder, dass wir weitermachen, immer weiter.
Es war sein ausdruecklicher Wunsch, seine Krankheit nicht nach aussen zu
tragen, da er die grosse Hoffnung hatte, wieder gesund zu werden.

Anton war sehr weltoffen und unternahm viele Fernreisen. In Haiti lernte
er seine Frau kennen. Er hat viele Fremdsprachen gelernt, u.a. Hebraeisch,
Indonesisch und (Haiti-) Kreolisch. In seiner Freizeit war er ein wahrer
Musikliebhaber, vor allem der Jazz hat es ihm sehr angetan. Der
Jazzmusiker Sun Ra und sein Arkestra, wie auch Miles Davis waren seine
liebsten Musiker. Aufgrund der Musik von Sun Ra fand er hier viele
Gleichgesinnte mit denen er im Raum Muenchen einen persoenlichen Kontakt
pflegte.

Die Trauerfeier fand am 25.03.2013 in Muenchen-Moosach beim Westfriedhof
statt. Die Beisetzung findet nach der Einaescherung einige Wochen spaeter
im engsten Familienkreis statt.

Anton hinterlaesst seine Ehefrau Colette, seine Kinder Isabelle und
Martial, seine Mutter und sieben Geschwister.

In der Trauerkarte steht es treffend
... ein Kaempfer warst Du alle mal ... im Leben, als AGDX Vorsitzender und
in der Zeit seiner schweren Krankheit.

Anton, Ruhe in Frieden, eine Bereicherung warst Du fuer uns.

Best regards,

Michael Bethge
