BHUTAN   6034.96  BBS Thimphu, at 1145-1310 UT on Sept 7. Heard daily with
poor reception. 1145-1205 UT mostly below threshold level; 1205-1213 UT
bits of talking heard; 1213-1229 UT indigenous music; 1230-1256 UT with a
cute BBS program I have often heard in past years with YL chatting on the
phone with young children and the kids also singing (no music - just
singing); clearly running past their normal sign off; fairly, sure still
on at 1310 UT, but unable to confirm just when they went off the air.

Thanks again to Gautam Sharma for his help

Today was able to finally measure BBS somewhat lower than PBS Yunnan-CHN.

Re: Greetings from San Francisco - BBS audio.
Thanks to D. Vijaya Krishna Bhat for providing that BBS suddenly went off
the air at 1312 UT today Sept 7. His signal was good, which he heard from
1230 UT. This confirms that BBS was indeed running past their usual sign
off of just before 1300 UT.

BONAIRE   BONAIRE - 50 YEARS OF SPEAKING HOPE TO LATIN AMERICA.

Bonaire was a magnet during the past weekend, drawing TWR leaders, alumni
staff members and ministry supporters to the little Caribbean island for a
special celebration.

From Aug. 9 to Aug. 11, 2014, the invading off-islanders joined with local
residents to mark the 50th anniversary of TWR broadcasting from a powerful
AM transmitter on the southern end of Bonaire to a sizable portion of
Latin America. That transmission footprint is slated to grow substantially
as the result of a power-upgrade campaign launched in tandem with the
yearlong anniversary commemoration. [PJB, 800 kHz]

"We are thankful for God's provision over the years, and it was wonderful
to celebrate the 50th anniversary with TWR staff, alumni and the Bonairean
people," said Joe Barker, station director of TWR Bonaire. "Everyone
enjoyed a great weekend of fellowship, reminiscing, and meeting old and
new friends as well as looking to the exciting future that God has in
store for TWR Bonaire."

The weekend celebration kicked off Saturday evening with a dinner,
followed by an insider update by TWR President Lauren Libby on the
international media ministry's outreach to Cuba and the rest of Latin
America. A celebratory worship service took place Sunday afternoon, and an
open house on Monday provided the opportunity for tours of the TWR Studio
Building in the island capital and for tours of the transmitter building
several miles away.

The celebration closed Monday evening with a dinner at the International
Bible Church. Wednesday, August 13, 2014, marks exactly 50 years since the
Bonaire transmitter officially went into action for the first time.

Among the special guests in attendance were Bill Mial, a semiretired TWR
missionary who was the transmitter facility's first director, and Tom
Lowell, who succeeded Mial in the director's position and now serves as
chairman of the ministry's international board of directors. Joining Mial,
Lowell and Libby in addressing the attendees were Tim Klingbeil, TWR
international director for the Americas; Ray Alary, director of TWR
Canada; and Lucy Totorici-Ellis, program producer of Women of Hope in
Papiamentu, the officially recognized regional language of Bonaire.

Although the main purpose of the weekend gathering was to look back and
praise the Lord for a half century of providential faithfulness, a sharp
focus on the future also pervaded the events as the project to boost the
transmitter's power from 100,000 watts to 450,000 watts was repeatedly
cited. The $3.8 million upgrade of the transmitter would enable a strong,
clear signal to carry Bible-based programming northward across all of Cuba
and southward deep into Brazil.

National partners of TWR in Latin America have already pledged $390,000 as
a challenge gift. TWR has issued a call for people who have a heart for
reaching this region to join the drive to reach millions more for Christ.

EUROPE   AFN Europe - video.

AFN with the US Hit Parade show was essential listening for me in the
early 60s even before offshore radio, so many amazing US records we had
not heard before in the UK.

Hans Knot has posted on Facebook a link to a black and white documentary
which was produced when AFN was 20 years old.

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EUx1UJyaeY>

"For twenty years one of the United States' largest radio networks has
been broadcasting news - information - music - sports - and dramatic
programs to an estimated audience of twenty million - yet has never been
heard in the United States. The American Forces Network, Europe (known to
its audience as AFN) has served the military community in Europe since it
began broadcasting from a basement studio in London, England, on July 4,
1943. This year marks its twentieth anniversary of broadcast operations.
THE BIG PICTURE captures on film the sight and sound of this unique radio
network as it goes about its daily business. Filmed in Frankfurt - Berlin
- Munich and Orleans, France - "The Story of AFN" is informative and
entertaining."

ETHIOPIA   EBC / Radio Ethiopia.

I've been listening to the online feed of Ethiopia's state broadcaster
(ertagov.com) for the past few days and noticed that in their vernacular
programmes they still identify as Radio Ethiopia, as well as EBC or
Ethiopia Broadcasting Corporation. I thought perhaps this was simply
because they hadn't got round to updating their canned announcements yet,
however in their English programme on the National Service at 1200 UT
today they ID'd throughout as "Radio Ethiopia", with no mention of
EBC/Ethiopia Broadcasting Corporation! So they haven't dropped their old
name altogether. Incidentally, the English programme wasn't on on Saturday
or Sunday, so presumably it's weekdays only.

EBC Radio 97.6 is a new service presented in English (at least partially)
"kicking off" on Ethiopian New Year Day (11 September) - both
'apparently', according to their website promo video (click on ERTATUBE).

GERMANY/all-EUROPE   153  Just been reading through the September edition

Longwave will be shut down on 31.12.2014 and Mediumwave is planned for
shutdown by 31.12.2015. On the recommendation of the KEF, the commission

Re: Deutschlandradio MW & LW to close.
A pity! DLF Aholming 207 kHz is audible in daytime in Bologna Italy too.

Italy on A22 Highway, so Deutschlandfunk really covers all German-speaking
countries on longwave.
(Stefano Valianti-ITA, BrDXC-UK Sept 14)

Re: Deutschlandradio MW & LW to close ...

The UK can use these vacant frequencies for such as BBC Radio 4 Extra
using the Droitwich masts - it would make sense as many of the programmes
on 'extra', such as older radio comedy or drama don't need stereo or
weren't made in stereo. An alternative would be use of these LW
frequencies by RTÉ in Eire (LW site Clarkstown, Co. Meath) or French
broadcasters but English language programmes would be better and more
internationally popular.

I can't somehow see Radio Normandie or Luxembourg coming back on LW as the
essentially high masts are gone. If I were a German I'd really regret no
German language heard on AM real radio - but if they want isolation so be
it!
(Rog Parsons-UK, BrDXC-UK ng Sept 14)

re > An alternative would be use of these LW frequencies by RTÉ in Eire...

Nice musing dreams ... to get a new or rather existing LW location move in
LW band - through approval and technical data consent process with
different other telecommunication authority and ITU board at Geneva, as
well as prepare tall LW masts on their small bandwidth alignement will
take months or rather two years time as noted in past decades ...

GERMANY   The German Deutsche Welle foreign radio service must continue to
manage money very sparingly. German wave separates from 230 employees,
dismissed from the employment relationship.

automatic translation:
"When German international broadcaster shaft there are further cuts for
the Employees. In Bonn, 170 freelance employees of larger affected savings
in Berlin received 60 freelancers at all no new orders more. According to
the Staff Council are mainly the German programming affected by the cuts.
The Employee representatives fear even a closure of the site in Bonn. The
German section of DWL must save money for years. Thus, among other things,
set down the German-language radio program two years ago."

Deutsche Welle trennt sich von Mitarbeitern.
Beim Auslandssender Deutsche Welle gibt es weitere Einschnitte fuer die
Mitarbeiter. Am Standort Bonn sind 170 freie Mitarbeiter von groesseren
Einsparungen betroffen, in Berlin erhalten 60 Freiberufler ueberhaupt
keine neuen Auftraege mehr. Nach Angaben des Personalrates sind vor allem
die deutschsprachigen Angebote von den Einschnitten betroffen. Die
Mitarbeiter-Vertreter befuerchten sogar eine Schliessung des Standortes in
Bonn. Die Deutsche Welle muss seit Jahren sparen. So wurde unter anderem
vor zwei Jahren das deutschsprachige Radioprogramm eingestellt.

INDIA   AWR Wavescan - A Visit to AIR: Khampur site.
A Visit to All India Radio: Khampur on Shortwave.

All India Radio AIR is one of the world's largest radio broadcasting
stations. They have erected numerous shortwave transmitting sites
throughout the country for external service coverage as well as for
domestic broadcasting. Back in April 2010, a group of three well known
international radio monitors made a visit to the AIR shortwave
transmitting station at Khampur which is located on the swampy out skirts
of the city of Delhi. The external service of All India Radio at the time
of their visit was on the air via shortwave transmitting sites at:

Khampur near Delhi      7 x 250 kW
Kingsway  Delhi         2 x 100 & 3 x 50 kW
Malad  Mumbai           1 x 100 kW
Gorakhpur  Nepal        1 x  50 kW
Dhodballapur Bangalore  6 x 500 kW
Aligarh in North India  4 x 250 kW
Bambolim at Panaji Goa  2 x 250 kW
Guwahati  Assam         1 x  50 kW, 1 x 200 kW mediumwave

The visit to the station by three visitors, T. R. Rajeesh,
Alokesh Gupta and Anker Petersen from Denmark, was organized by the former
station Engineer of Delhi Khampur, Mr. V.Baleja.

After visiting the AIR headquarters on Parliament Street New Delhi, the
three visitors traveled by car for a little over half an hour to reach the
Khampur station which is located 25 kms from New Delhi. On the way to the
Khampur station, they saw the Delhi Kingsway transmitting site from the
road. This 256 acre site is used for transmitting programs on shortwave
for the national service as well as for the external services beamed to
India's South Asian neighbors. They also saw the self radiating mast of
the AIR New Delhi mediumwave station at Nangli which is capable of
broadcasting in the DRM mode.

The Delhi Khampur transmitting station is located on a large 630 acre site
in the swampy fields of Khampur village in outer Delhi, bordering on the
state of Haryana. While approaching the transmitting station they could
see the antenna towers and the curtain arrays from the road.

Several photos of the antenna masts were taken from the roadside as they
were aware that it is impossible to take photos inside where photography
is prohibited. On the way to the station office, they saw much wildlife in
the swampy field. The dancing peacocks, doves and storks welcomed them
without any official formalities!

The Station Engineer, Mrs. Sonilatha Saigalin welcomed the visitors to her
office and she was amazed that three international radio monitors would
travel so far to visit this transmitter site! Anker Petersen told her that
the broadcasts from this station can be heard quite well in Denmark and he
suggested that he could send monitoring reports to her. The Station
Engineer replied that such reports are forwarded to the Frequency
Management Division in New Delhi.

The Superintending Engineer, Mr. S. K. Aggarwal, who is the chief of the
station, directed the Station Engineer to show the visitors the
transmitters and antenna field. They observed the old and new transmitters
as well as a new DRM transmitter, and also the antenna towers and the vast
arrays of shortwave curtain antennas.

This Khampur station houses 7 x 250 kW shortwave transmitters and 36
antenna masts, and 49 curtain arrays. A special power substation provides
electricity to this transmitter station. At the time, the Delhi Khampur
station had a staff of around 200 employees, including 50 engineers and
technicians.

The Delhi Khampur transmitter site was opened on January 1, 1959 and the
first transmitter was a 100 kW Marconi, which was more recently sold as
scrap. Two AWA units from Australia at 20 kW each were installed in 1962.
During 1965 four more transmitters were installed, two at 50 kW and two at
100 kW, made by STC (Standard Telephones & Cables) of Australia.

A recent modernization plan was undertaken to transform Khampur into an
external services transmission facility. All of the new transmitters were
placed in an oblong but spacious antenna switching hall and all of the AWA
and STC transmitters were retired from service.

In 1989, two 250 kW Brown Boveri transmitters were commissioned
exclusively for the external services. Then, two new modern Continental
Electronics units were installed in June 2000. During the year 2002, three
new 250 kW Thomcast transmitters were commissioned for the external
services and this converted Khampur into the second largest transmitting
station of All India Radio, after Bangalore.

The Delhi Khampur transmitting station celebrated its 50th anniversary in
2009 with the participation of listeners and engineering staff.

Digital Radio Mondiale or DRM is the new trend in shortwave broadcasting,
particularly in India. Like many other major shortwave broadcasters, All
India Radio has also introduced DRM transmission on shortwave. It is from
this site, Delhi Khampur, that AIR has tested DRM transmissions for both
domestic and international audiences.

A 250 kW Thales/Thomcast transmitter was converted to DSB/DRM capability
with an output of 55 kW for domestic transmission on 6100 kHz, and on 9950
kHz for external service to Europe. The domestic transmission is monitored
inside the transmitter building with a Chinese manufactured Himalaya DRM
receiver.

During the evening after the informative visit to AIR Khampur, there was
an informal meeting with local international radio monitors in New Delhi.

For those who would like to do so, reception reports for AIR Delhi Khampur
may be addressed to:

INDIA   Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM)
Announces at IBC 2014 First DRM Receiver produced in India.

At IBC on Friday 12th September the DRM Consortium launched the first DRM
AM model receiver produced in India for India and for global use.

The AV-DR -1401 designed and produced by Communications Systems Inc under
the brand name Avion Electronics of India
<www.avionelectronics.in>
is a digital DRM SW, MW, as well as analogue AM and FM receiver with
stereo reception, offering some of the extra features that make digital
superior to analogue: more choice in perfect sound (MPEG audio),
multimedia applications and local interactive text and media (Journaline),
automatic tuning by station, not frequency, emergency alert capability
etc.

The receiver was unveiled at the first DRM 'Pit-stop' on Friday 12th
September at the Ampegon stand (Hall 8:D35). It was subsequently showcased
on Saturday 13th September at Thomson Broadcast, the second 'Pit stop'
event (Hall 8:C35) and  at the "tell and show" event organised by DRM
Consortium member Nautel Ltd (Hall 8:C49).

At their session 'Building to a Billion and Beyond', Nautel
representatives and other Consortium companies from India and around the
world gave an update on the digital project in India and participants
could sample the excellent sound of the new DRM receiver model.

Ankit Agrawal, Director of Communications Systems Inc which produced the
new model was thrilled with the interest created by the DRM radio: "Our
receiver performed very well and its audio quality, extra features and
ease of use received a lot of positive feedback.  IBC participants
particularly liked the extended battery life of the receiver and its
emergency warning capability.  With small adjustments we plan to make the
receiver available for order in the next few months."

Ruxandra Obreja, the Consortium Chairman, says that: "We are very pleased
with the exciting announcement on this new Indian receiver. With
sufficient orders and support it could do very well and start the receiver
ball rolling demonstrating that global, green and extremely cost-effective
DRM is not just the future of digital radio but a reality for listeners
now."

Other DRM members present at IBC are: Digidia, Fraunhofer IIs, GatesAir,
RFmondial and Transradio.

Re: UNID 677.5 kHz. Suspect it is Benghazi, Libya on 677.5 kHz. Nick, but
been unable to positively ID yet. No not a spurious. In Arabic, not helped
of course by strong Lopik, Netherlands on 675.0 kHz.

677.5 kHz closed at 2249 UT on Sept 13, preceded by long upbeat song
(anthem?) I remember hearing a lot during the Libyan Civil War in 2011.
So - definitely Libya.

MOROCCO   9575, Radio Medi Une - Nador, at 0426-0451 UT on Sept 1, popular
music program with ID at 0430 UT and news in French language. Man
announcer began hosting pop music program after the news at 0434 UT. Fair.
(Rich D'Angelo-PA-USA, DXplorer Sept 8)

MOROCCO    Medi 1 is a commercial station well heard in the Mediterranean
countries on SW 9575 kHz and LW 171 kHz, it offers a programming based on
current affairs, news and culture programmes along with a Western and
Arabic pop music mix formula, including some specialised music programmes.
This is the correct schedule after monitoring of some of, from my point of
view, most interesting music programmes offered by this station:

Ritmo Latino, modern Latin dance music presented by Layla Belarbi
(in French): Saturday 1503-1600 UT.

Jazz Session, jazz classics presented by Jawad (in French):
Sunday 2304-0000 UT.

La Bossa Nova, Bossa Nova hits presented by Sanae (in French): scheduled
Sunday 1815 UT but not noted at that time; shows can be heard anyway at
<http://www.medi1.com/musique/bossa/>

La Musique Soufie, Sufi music presented by Ahmed Lekhligh (in Arabic):
daily 1930-1958 repeated at 0300-0328 UT. This programme has become one of
my favorites; Wikipedia says "While all Muslims believe that they are on
the pathway to God and hope to become close to God in Paradise after death
and after the "Final Judgment" Sufis also believe that it is possible to
draw closer to God and to more fully embrace the Divine Presence in this
life. The chief aim of all Sufis is to seek the pleasing of God by working
to restore within themselves the primordial state of fitra described in
the Qur'an fitra is an Arabic word meaning "disposition", "constitution",
or "instinct". In a mystical context, it can connote intuition or insight
(...), in this state, nothing one does defies God, and all is undertaken
with the single motivation of love of God".

Some prominent Sufi musicians according to Wikipedia are Abida Parveen,
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Sanam Marvi, all from Pakistan. La Musique
Soufie is half hour of slow and smooth music, ideal for relaxing after a
workday.

MYANMAR   9730  Myanmar Radio with soccer matches, Myanmar Radio, at 1107-
1128* UT on Sept 9. Live coverage of the "U19" (under 19) ASEAN AFF soccer
game with Myanmar vs. Indonesia, played in Vietnam; match ended 1119 UT.
First time I have ever heard Myanmar with sports coverage. Possibly a TV
audio feed? Not much in the way of a running commentary. Certainly not
play by play coverage as would be expected for a radio audience.

Sept 10 (Wednesday), again with what sounded like live sports coverage
from tune in at 1048 UT till end of game at 1122 UT; today did sound more
like play by play coverage; unable to hear which teams were playing;
search of web found no Myanmar games scheduled for today (pre-recorded?).
This preempted the normal Wed. ABC/Radio Australia segment.

RUSSIA   New Zealand Radio DX League - Paul Ormandy:

Russian Independent SW Stations 1991-96.

Hi all, Have a last managed to compile the nucleus of an article I'd been
planning to do for some time. Winter is a great season for sitting in
front of the fire and catching up on articles, after all radio conditions
are poor in the evenings and its very cold in the shack! The article is
Russian Independent SW Stations 1991-1996. By going through the DXTimes
magazines conveniently and kindly scanned by Chris Mackerell, I have
created an outline which needs some filler. So if anyone would like to
contribute or correct the information, please use the Comments box below
the article or e-mail me directly

<ormandy -at- orcon.net.nz>

<http://www.radiodx.com/articles/station-profiles/europe/russian-independent-sw-stations-1991-96/>

Have a look around radiodx.com while you're there. Enjoy!. Cheers, Paul
(Paul Ormandy-NZL- New Zealand Radio DX League, RUSdx Aug 31)

With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, groups within the new
Russian "Commonwealth of Independent States" seized the opportunity to
have a global voice: enter shortwave. Few in the DX world could have
predicted the boom in independent shortwave broadcasting and it made good
sport for DXers, as most were using relatively low-powered transmitters,
some using former Cold War jammer transmitters.

Using the DX Times as a reference source, the first mention of the newly
deregulated Russian broadcasting scene appeared in the October 1991
magazine with a reference to radio station Ekho Moskvy (Echo of Moscow).
In the same issue Radio Vedo in Volgograd was reported signing on.

Soon after, another broadcaster appeared, with Radio Ala in St. Petersburg
(formerly Leningrad) playing traditional Russian folk music. The right-
wing Russian nationalist station, Radio Pamyat appeared in print early
1992, one of their programs was called "Fatherland, Memory & You". Around
the same time Radio Rezonans, a station aiming at the new Russian business
market signed on. Broadcasting from Ostankino, they carried ads in several
languages.

On February 23 1992, Radio Galaxy signed on from Moscow. This new
commercial station even carried 3 hours a day in English and in May were
palying Russian music and all announcements were in English.

In the April DXT, a list compiled by John Fisher of DX Ontario was
reprinted with many more broadcasters taking to air. They include Radio
Studia Dvizhenie ("Traffic Radio"), Radio Samara in Togliatti, Radio
Tartar in Kazan, Radio Kudymkar in Yekaterinburg, Marly Radio in Yoshkar
Ala, Radio Polis in St. Petersburg, Radio Perm in Yekaterinburg Radio
Dalny Vostok, Radiostansiya Novaya Volna ("New Wave") in Novisibirsk,
Adygey Radio in Maykop and Kabardino-Balkar Radio in Nalchik.

In the May DXT, Radio Space gets its first mention, the station's name was
given in English as were some of the program titles. In the same month
Radio Polyus entered the fray. The following month they were joined by
Radio Trekfrom Yekaterinburg and Radio Art.

June saw first reports of Russian orthodox sender Radio Stansiya Radonez
hand Radio Alef, ("alef" is the Hebrew pronunciation of the letter "A")
with announcements in Russian and Hebrew. Radio Yunost a youth-oriented
station had been on-air since 1962 before adding SW transmitters in
Murmansk and Samara. Another new SW broadcaster as was Radio SNC with
rock, pop and punk music, taking its name from the Stas Nanin Center,
(Stas Nanin was a famous Russian rock promoter). Radio Without Borders
International came to air with reportedly just 100W and may have been
unlicenced. Radio Shark (in Turkish, "Radio East") in Ufa, Bashkortostan
first appeared around the same time.

The following months saw Radio Yakutsk in the DX press and the launch of
one of the best-known stations, Radio Nadezhda (Radio Hope) whose target
audience were women, including programs on family issues. Radio Alpha &
Omega also commenced broadcasting around this time, one of the few
Christian religious stations from Russia.

In September, Radio Bereyzovo using a former jammer transmitter from
Kahnty-Mansyisk was first reported, along with Islamist voice Rukhi Meroc
(Tatar for "spiritual healing") and Radio Chita. Others noted were Radio
Maykop in Agydey language and Radio 101. Next month, Radio M and Radio N
appeared from Yekaterinberg sharing the same transmitter.

November saw Radio 7 using an ex-jammer transmitter from Samara along with
a real mouthful for non-Russian speakers Radiostansiya Russkogo
Patriotcheskogo Dvizheniya ("Radio Station of the Russian Patriotic
Movement"), also known as Radio Blagovest, from the city of Irkutsk. They
were joined by Radio Unis in Moscow and Russkoye Khristianskoye Radio
("Russian Christian Radio"). Soon after Radiostansiya Omega came to air
also with 15 kW from a presuem ex-jammer. In early 1993 Radio Diapazon
made its SW debut as did Radio Centr, hiring transmitter-time from Radio
Moscow made their SW debuts.

Then in May 1993, it was reported that Radio Art and Radio Ala had ceased
broadcasting, presaging then end of a hectic 18 months in the new history
of broadcasting in Russia.

Whilst some failed, some grew stronger. Radio Nadezhda had added more
broadcast hours from more sites and Radio Galaxy commenced a DX program,
hired time on a 250 kW transmitter and started international broadcasts to
Western Europe. During the year more new stations came on, Radio Mika M-4,
Radio Titan Kompani (part-relay Radio Shark) with another re-purposed 15
kW sender and Radio Raketa at Grozny on the shores of the Caspian Sea.

In September U Radio from Moscow was irregularly heard. More new stations
followed, like Radio Ves Irkutsk and Radiochannel Uralskiy Commercheskiy
Vestnik ("Ural Commercial Herald") along with Radio Mir ("Radio Peace").
In 1994, Islamic station Radio Al-Risalah commenced from Moscow, hiring
airtime from Radio Moscow and the Bolshakovo, Kaliningrad station.

Radiostantsiya Lena described as a music and informational station,
signed-on from Yakutsk. Late in the year, Radio Samorodinka in the Moscow
region, announcing itself as a "private non-commercial program of
authorised radio broadcasting" arrived on SW. Around this time, Radio
Moscow renamed itself as the Voice of Russia.

In June 1995, it was reported that Radio Nadezhda stopped broadcasting on
shortwave and only broadcasting around the local Moscow area. Nadezhda had
become the largest-scale independent broadcaster of the era. Then in May
1996, it was reported that they'd returned to SW on a single frequency.

Another station with Islamic programming was reported in September 1996,
Islamskaya Volna ("Islamic Wave") from the Moscow Islamic Centre carried
broadcats in Russian, Arabic and Tatar and directed some broadcasts to the
Middle East.

There were no further reports on any independent broadcasters for the rest
of the year.

Most of the above stations only lasted a short time. Some closed
altogether, some moved to FM, some to the internet and a few are still on
the air. So ended another interesting chapter in the world of DXing.

Reader contributions, corrections, images and additional information on
these stations is very appreciated. In particular, what groups or
interests these stations represented and what happened to them.

SAUDI ARABIA   Ampegon delivers Shortwave Transmitters and Antenna Systems
to Saudi Broadcast Corporation.

Turgi, Switzerland, Sept 12, 2014.
audi Broadcast Corporation (SBC), Saudi's National Broadcaster, has
contracted Ampegon through undisputed Saudi market leader First Gulf
Company (FGC) for the renewal of their radio transmission site in Riyadh.

Ampegon will deliver four 500 kW shortwave transmitters, four shortwave
antennas HRS 4/4/0.5 and the BroadMaster broadcast control system. The new
systems will replace existing analog transmitters with four tubes by
modern analog/digital transmitters having single high power tube
amplification and hence a much better overall efficiency.

Saudi Broadcast Corporation has selected FGC proposal with Ampegon because
of the capability of FGC to handle large projects along with Ampegon's
expertise and the reliability of their systems well known since decades.
Ampegon had supplied several antenna and transmission systems in the past
and feels honored to once again show presence in Saudi Arabia.

The transmitters will be manufactured in Turgi, Switzerland. Factory tests
together with SBC engineers are planned for autumn and shipments before
end of 2014. Commissioning by an Ampegon engineer will start afterwards
and the new systems are expected to be on air within summer 2015.

Engineer Saleh A. Almeghaileeth, Vice-President for Engineering Affairs at
SBC, is extremely pleased to work together with Ampegon: "Ampegon offers a
complete solution approach including transmitters, antennas, broadcast
control systems and DRM integration. We trust on Ampegon's and FGC's
experience as they had delivered shortwave transmitters in the past that
still work to our full satisfaction."

"... Die Tages-Chroniken des KWD waren die ersten Informationsbulletins,

"... Es wird etwa aufgezeigt, wie sich die Schweiz gegenueber der Kritik
Grossbritanniens, sie arbeite fuer die Wirtschaft Hitler-Deutschlands,
gerechtfertigt hatte. Der KWD argumentierte, dass die Schweiz nicht am
Kriegsgeschehen beteiligt sei, weder auf der einen, noch auf der anderen
Seite, sondern dass sie nur einen "ausgewogenen und respektablen" Handel
mit den andern Maechten aufrecht erhalten wolle, um zu ueberleben ..."

Anscheinend wurde alles als Bild eingescannt, eine OCR durchgefuehrt und
indiziert. Die gefundenen downloadbaren Dokumente weisen allerdings keine
zusaetzliche Textebene auf, die PDFs werden augenscheinlich temporaer

VATICAN STATE   In the morning hours on Thursday 8 May 2014, Vatican Radio
medium wave antennas were demolished at Santa Maria di Galeria
Transmitting Centre. An unexpected event ends an extraordinary history of
radio broadcasting. Medium wave 1530 kHz ended broadcasting in 2011 but
the transmitting plant including a four-tower directional antenna system
had been saved until now for further use.

The demolition abruptly occurred 13 years after accusations of electro-
magnetic pollution were formulated. Vatican Radio medium wave covered
Europe and the Mediterranean with a very good signal at night. The end of
MW broadcasts deeply affected travellers as well as everyone not having
access to the internet but also dramatically reduced any opportunity to
make the Pope's message reach the world independently from other operators
and connections

Re: 21550 kHz - 0742 UT, wedding ceremony, 20 pairs mass wedding.
"Messa con Celebrazione del Sacramento del Matrimonio"

14/09/2014 - Pope presides at the marriage twenty couples during Mass in
St Peter's Basilica.

Pope Francis: Marriage is not fiction, Christ's love sustains couples.
Pope Francis celebrates Mass on the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy
Cross, in a ceremony that included the marriage of 20 couples from the
Diocese of Rome.

To the simple strains of a harp, twenty grooms made their way up the
central nave of St Peter's Basilica with their mothers, followed by twenty
brides dressed in white accompanied by their fathers. All of the couples

British DX Club - 40th Anniversary

A copy of the special 40th anniversary edition for September 2014 of the
club's monthly bulletin "Communication" can be found via the link at

<http://www.bdxc.org.uk/>

"This special 40th anniversary issue looks through members' eyes at the
DXing scene back in the 1970s, both on land and at sea. There is a healthy
dose of nostalgia, looking back into the rich heritage of radio and the
club itself. But as ever, we look at the present and the future too, with
the latest news and events, logs and observations. It is very difficult to
predict what might be written here in another 40 years; 2054 looks like a
date from science fiction, but there will surely still be radio
broadcasters out there, and DXers of the future, to listen, log and
enthuse on our shared love of radio.

Congratulations to the BDXC and Good Listening!"

TAIWAN     RTI-Hoererklub Ottenau Kontest 03.-17. Okt. 2014

Vielleicht von Interesse und noch nicht bekannt?

Hier noch der Hinweis auf den naechsten Hoererklubkontest:

Am 10.10.1986, (dem Nationalfeiertag der Republik China) begann die
Ausstrahlung deutscher Sendungen der "Stimme des Freien China", heute
"Radio Taiwan International", kurz RTI.

Wie jedes Jahr zu diesem Anlass veranstaltet der RTI-Hoererklub Ottenau
eine Diplomaktion fuer alle interessierten Kurzwellenhoerer.
Partnerstation ist diesmal Radio Tirana, das vor nunmehr 50 Jahren, genau
am 22. November 1964, mit regelmaessigen Sendungen in Deutsch begann.

Einzusenden ist jeweils ein Empfangsbericht ueber Sendungen beider
Stationen ueber Kurzwelle, Kontestzeitraum ist der 3. bis 17. Oktober
2014. Zu hoeren ist nach Moeglichkeit ein "Hoererbriefkasten" von RTI, der
jeweils am Freitag gesendet wird, sowie eine der Hoererpostsendungen von
Radio Tirana, die immer am Mittwoch und Freitag auf dem Programm stehen.
Aber auch die geplanten Direktsendungen im Kontestzeitraum aus Taiwan
haben ihren besonderen Anreiz.

Das gewohnte elektronische Email-Diplom gibt es kostenlos gegen die
Einsendung der Kontestberichrichte an die Adresse:

<bernhard.seiser -at- daimler.com>

oder auch bei Einsendung an diese private Emailadresse von Bernd Seiser.

Wer ein gedrucktes Diplom per Post erhalten moechte, schickt bitte seine
Empfangsberichte (nur Kopien, Originale bitte direkt an die beiden
Stationen, die diese mit QSL-Karten bestaetigen!), an:

Werner Schubert, Poststr. 8/I, 85567 Grafing, Deutschland.

Fuer Mitglieder der beiden RTI-Hoererklubs sowie des
Radio-Tirana-Hoererklubs sind Diplom und Versand kostenlos, andere
Teilnehmer bitten wir um Beilage von 1,45 Euro in Briefmarken (Inland)
bzw. zwei IRCs (Ausland). Die Diplome werden voraussichtlich Anfang
November verschickt.

Unter allen Teilnehmern werden zusaetzlich kleine Souvenirs aus und ueber
Albanien verlost.

Der RTI-Hoererklub Ottenau und der Radio-Tirana-Hoererklub freuen sich auf
Eure Teilnahme!

Vermutlich testet RTI am Montag 15.09.2014 von 16-17 UT auf 11665 kHz
direkt aus Taiwan. Die Kontestdirektsendungen sind fuer 3, 4, 5, 10, 11
und 12 Oktober analog und am 18 und 19 Oktober in DRM Modus vorgesehen,
falls es zu keinen aktuellen Aenderungen kommt.
