ALGERIA/IRELAND   252  RTÉ signal well down. Signal on 252 kHz hardly
readable right down in noise here (Leicestershire/Warks border) where as
normally very good on my HF 225 Lowe and 17 metres at 25ft going 1 degree
off south to north, balun, and RG58U coax in about 18 mtres. Even normally
get a good signal on my Fidelity Rad 21 - so what's going on or is this a
awfully badly timed transmitter failure ?
(Rog Parsons-UK, BrDXC-UK Oct 15)

At 2100 UT last night on the Twente receiver there was a mix of RTÉ and
French audio.

At 2200 UT on my Sony ICF7600G there was a RTÉ together with a 1 kHz tone,
also heard by two contributors to Digital Spy in Ireland, not far from the
transmitter and Bristol.

Tipaza Algeria co-channel on test?
(Mike Barraclough-UK, BrDXC-UK Oct 16)

re 252 kHz longwave.

I seem to recall the 300 kW LW transmitter at Clarkstown RTÉ Radio 1 was
originally allowed (ITU) 500 kW day but 300 kW in 'hours of darkness'
[variously claimed as 150 kW and 100 kW on various non-RTÉ web sites]
(ostensibly to avoid interference with Algeria certainly whilst the
Algeria mast(s?) were being repaired after 'storm damage' though WRTH 2014
only quotes 300 kW all times.

It seems some countries/stations loose out on these arrangements as I'm
told (depending on manufacture and type i.e. valve or semi-conductor) a
500 kW transmitter though not necessarily appreciably stronger would be
more reliable and less prone to interference than a 300 kW - though the
sitting (ground plain etc) would perhaps not substantiate this argument
where asl is important.

I understand the Algerian transmitter at Tipaza is now 1500 kW! but half
power from 1900 to 0600 UT. Though with 'Luxembourg Effect' this seems to
allow one co-channel mess to replace another. Obviously AM will not 'go
away' as some would like, so perhaps a revised frequency allocation
conference is required.

However I fear the wrong people at these radio broadcast companies are
deciding only digital - and therefore very limited range - transmissions
are the future, this coming at a time US President Obama says it is
communications with ordinary, but impressionable, folk need improving -
surely these AM radio stations could and should be used to help this.

ALGERIA   252  re TDA/RTA Tipaza Algeria 252 longwave
Just at 0030 UT on Oct 17th noted a powerhouse 1000 Hertz test tone on
longwave 252 kHz, just on remote SDR unit in southern Italy across the
Mediterranean.

S=9+45dB or -29dBm, tremendous powerful signal.

RTA Algerian longwave 252 kHz refurbished in past months, a new solid
state longwave unit of TransRadio/former Telefunken Berlin Germany unit
and rebuilt also longwave antenna by Ampegon Schifferstadt Germany

<http://www.transradio.de/index.php/fr/actualites/154-tda-tipaza>

signal peaks on browser visibile on 251, 252, and 253 kHz exact.

(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 17)

I also heard a very strong tone on 252 kHz early this morning (presumably
Algeria), at least as strong as RTÉ Radio 1. I could null out the tone to
hear just RTÉ R1 and conversely null out RTÉ R1 to just hear the tone
(rotating the Sony 7600GR with internal ferrite rod).

This was around 0430 UT, at the end of RTÉ R1's "Through the Night" and
start of Shay Byrne's "Risin' Time". Could also hear some muffled French
talk under the strong tone, which in retrospect could have been the
"Luxembourg Effect". Now, during daylight, RTÉ is fine and clear with no
trace of Algeria here on 252 kHz.

ALGERIA/IRELAND/GERMANY    TDA/RTA Tipaza Algeria on 252 kHz longwave ...

re Ireland 252 kHz.

RTÉ Raidió Teilifís Éireann decision rather to save main power money on
their anual budget, - as 150 kW and 100 kW on various non-RTÉ web sites, -
... is far enough to cover all Albion target.

Has nothing to do with long time planned renewing / refurbishing work at
TDA-RTA Tipaza Algeria site.

Algeria target is soooo far away of RTÉ Ireland LW tx propagation, for the
usual common listener.

re semi-conductor tx unit ... some technical details discussion.

I would not be surprised if TDA-RTA Algeria emits only with the power of
500 kW in near future. You are not forced to use once registered ITU plan
performance also in future ...

Same TransRadio/Telefunken Berlin TX unit type has been used at Radio
Moscow relay site Wachenbrunn in Germany on 1323 kHz once.

Efficiency of this TX type is 84%.

Designed of low power software combined moduls of 1.3 kW OUTPUT each,
interconnect many individual power modules of 1.3 kilowatt,
inductively coupled like
768 units x 1.3 kW output = 1000 kW in total,
divided in 2 separate blocks of 500 kW each.

In order for easier handling and outcoupling of blocks for repairs and
replace the modules, even during full operation of the remaining block on
air.

At TDA-RTA site in Tipaza Algeria new TransRadio units renewing
would design consist of 2 x 750 kW blocks,
which mean a 750 kW block is divided in 570 x 1.3 kW transmission moduls.

Each 19" insertion rack contain 48 transmission moduls.
Each 750 kW block would contain 12 x 19" insertion racks...

NF audio quality is in range 30 Hertz to 10 kHz, but I've my doubts,
rather itself of TDA-RTA Algiers feeder line signals, are not made in this
quality.

Algerian TDA Tipaza transmitter (2 x Tesla DRV 750, said to be using 750
kW
"only" at night) was built in year 1972 by CSSR firm Tesla, and powerhouse
LW 252 opened again after refurbishing work on Dec 12, 2001.

would check with Ron Howard to verify that. I logged Bhutan on the lower

CHINA MAINLAND  [and non]   JAMMING OF BBC THAILAND.

On Oct 1, at the height of the peaceful Hong Kong protests, I noted BBC -
Nakhon Sawan on 12010 kHz with heavy jamming of the English service to
East Asia at 2315 UTC. And, yes, jamming of BBC has been going on for a
long time now. But currently I suspect Beijing is most concerned that its
citizens might hear about those "naughty" Hong Kong residents getting too
uppity over their freedom and democracy.

Interestingly, I also checked the Kranji (Singapore) transmitter on 11850
kHz at the same time and found that, both here at Mount Evelyn and on the
Philippines remote receiver, this frequency was not jammed at all.
Although Kranji's 11850 kHz is targeted to SoEaAS and Indonesia, it would
be possible for any enthusiastic Chinese resident to tune into that
frequency and hear BBC unjammed.

At 0000 UT, 13725 kHz kicks in via the Thailand transmitter with a
continuation of the English service to EaAS. Again, jamming was heard but
the signal into the Hong Kong remote receiver was so strong that jamming
was well in the background and largely ineffective. However, at the same
time on 15650 kHz and also targeting China, no jamming could be heard at
all on neither the Hong Kong remote nor here at Mount Evelyn. On this day,
at least, it seemed that the Chinese administration was putting up only a
half-hearted effort in trying to stop transmissions into mainland China.

DENMARK   243 kHz longwave Kalundborg.
Teracom A/S. Thank you for your e-mail of 01.10.2014 with the reception
report. I can confirm, based on your program information, that you have
indeed heard DR's Longwave transmitter on 243 kHz from Kalundborg.

It's also interesting to read about your receiver type and the 41 meter
longwire antenna.

Your reception report break the record concerning the distance to our
transmitter. I guess the reason is that Russia do not anywhere use the
frequency 243 kHz more for broadcast.

It may perhaps surprise you that the RF transmitter power for the
Kalundborg LW TX is only 50 kW - but when you see the QSL card with the
photo, you can perhaps sense that the antenna efficiency are rather high.
The main reason is the seawater very close to the antenna system.

I have enclosed a QSL card with this letter- it's a photo which show the
transmitter site in Kalundborg.

Thank you again for the interest for DR's 243 kHz Long Wave broadcast from
Denmark. Best greetings and 73 - Jens Chr. Seeberg - Systems Specialist.

GERMANY Atlantic 2000 will be on the air this Sunday 12th of October from

HISTORY
<http://radioatlantic2000.free.fr/HISTORY.htm>

We transmitted for the first time on shortwave on June 6th, 1982 on 7325
kHz. But in fact, the name of "Atlantic 2000" is very much older. In 1956,
Radio Andorra is not received very well on the Atlantic coast. Its owner,
Jacques Tremoulet, decided to rent airtime to a Spanish station of the SER
network,

Radio San Sebastian. Thus was born Radio Atlantic, transmitting from Spain
to the French Atlantic coast. But due to a lack of advertising revenue,
the station closed down in 1960.

In 1968, Jacques Tremoulet came back on the Basque Coast. He rented
airtime to another Spanish station, named "La Voz de Guipuzcoa",
transmitting from the Ulia Mount, near San Sebastian. He launched Radio
Ocean. The station transmitted several hours per day in French language on
273 meters on medium wave.

Jacques Tremoulet passed away in 1971. His successors did not want to
continue Radio Ocean. The station came under the control of the French
newspaper Sud-Ouest, directed by Henri Amouroux, and became Atlantic 2000
in 1972.

During the following years, Atlantic 2000 continued to transmit on
273 meters [1098 kHz?], and became popular in the South West of France.

In 1974, Henri Amouroux leaves the newspaper Sud-Ouest. His successors are
not interested by Atlantic 2000, and the station had financial problems.

In 1975, due to the death of General Franco, a national bereavement forced
all Spanish stations to play classical music without advertising during
several weeks. Transmitting from Spain, Atlantic 2000 is concerned by this
decision. The management of the station used this pretext for close down
the station for good.

But in 1978, the listeners of the French Atlantic coast heard a new
station named Atlantic 2000, playing pop music on 101 MHz FM. In tribute
to the station disappeared 3 years earlier, our team relaunched Atlantic
2000. The new Atlantic 2000 began broadcasting at the end of 1978 on
101 MHz FM. A few weeks later, the station was switching on a second
transmitter on 95 MHz, broadcasting simultaneously on 101 and 95 MHz for a
short time.

The frequency of 101 MHz was abandoned on December 31st, 1978. Each
weekend, and during the summer, Atlantic 2000 continued its regular
broadcasts on 95 MHz until the end of summer 1981. The station produced
some new transmissions on 95 MHz in early 1982.

Atlantic 2000 International was broadcasting for the first time on short
wave on June 6th, 1982 on 7325 kHz. We were on the air usually every month
until July 1988.

Some frequencies were tested, on the 48, 41, 38 and 26 meter bands. The
best results were obtained on the 41 meter band.

After more 19 years of silence, Atlantic 2000 was back on the air on
October 28th, 2007 on 6280 and 6210 kHz.

From 2008 to 2010, we broadcasted from Italy, by using the transmitters of
Mystery Radio, and then, Radio Amica.

From December 2010, we broadcasted on 6005 kHz, from Kall-Krekel in
Germany, who is the transmitting site of Radio 700. From the same site, we
can also transmit on 7310 kHz.

Since October 2011, Atlantic 2000 is regularly transmitting on the 31
meter band, using the relay service of MV Baltic Radio, from Goehren in
Germany. The current frequency is 9485 kHz.

We received a lot of reception reports from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria,
Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India,
Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand,
Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain,
Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA and Ukraine.

Atlantic 2000 can be listened all around the world on the Internet. We
have a lot of connections. Many listeners are now interested by this new
transmission mode.

IRELAND   252  RTÉ to face Oireachtas grilling over ending of longwave
radio service.

RTÉ chiefs will appear before an Oireachtas committee today to address
concerns over ending the longwave radio service.

Chairman of the communications committee John O'Mahony said that the
broadcaster would be asked to explain the rationale for the closure, due
to come into effect in just 12 days.

"The committee is concerned about the impending closure of RTÉ's longwave
transmitter at Clarkstown, and particularly, its impact on the Irish
diaspora in the UK," said Mr O'Mahony.

"While low cost air travel and advances in digital communications has made
it easier for the Irish in Britain to keep in contact with home, older
emigrants have depended on the longwave radio service for news and sport
from Ireland.

"While cognisant of the financial challenges facing the national
broadcaster, the committee will wish to explore the rationale for the
decision to close this valued service to the Irish in Britain."

RTÉ Radio managing director Jim Jennings said the move was in line with a
European trend towards shutting down longwave and would save about
EUR_250,000 yearly. "Longwave has been in operation for the last 10 years
and we feel the time is right to move towards more online offering. We
have a lot of offerings at the moment to the UK in particular. We are in
15m households in the UK with Virgin media, Sky and Freesat. We also have
a radio player which is available online which is increasing its number of
streams to the UK. And we think the number of people accessing longwave is
very small."

Mr Jennings said the broadcaster switched off this service earlier in the
year for nearly two days and received just 37 complaints.

Founder of GlobalIrish.ie Noreen Bowden hit out at the decision saying
there had been no consultation and RTÉ did not know how many people would
be impacted. "This is a community of 400,000 Irish emigrants, Irish-born
people. About a third of them are over 65. There is likely to be a very
high proportion of people who will not be able to move on to internet."

RTÉ postpones LW transmitter closedown.

Bishops welcome additional time ahead of closure to enable listeners
switch to religious programmes on digital service.

The Catholic Communications Office on behalf of the Irish Catholic
Bishops' Conference has welcomed RTÉ 's announcement that it will postpone
the closure of its long wave transmitter for three months.

Earlier this month the national broadcaster decided to close the
transmitter as of 27 October 2014.

This shutdown will result in the station's one and a half hours of
religious services currently broadcast on long wave being transferred to
digital radio.

The Catholic bishops appealed for a longer lead in time saying the "short-
notice given by RTÉ will result in a net loss of listenership".

They were concerned that the audience affected would be mostly rural,
older, less well-off, living in the North of Ireland, as well as the
elderly Irish in Britain.

Yesterday the Managing Director of RTÉ Radio told the Joint Committee on
Transport and Communications that the closure would be postponed three
months until 19 January 2015.

Jim Jennings said what was evident was that more time was needed to engage
with groups affected. He and an RTÉ delegation will travel to the UK next
week to meet organisations and see if there is a better solution to the
long wave issue.

Mr Jennings assured the Oireachtas Committee that RTÉ was doing all it
could "to engage with community groups" and he accepted that the original
window given for closure was too short.

The bishops' communications office said the decision was welcome "as this
will give more time to prepare and plan for the consequences of this
significant broadcasting decision".

In their original communique to RTÉ the bishops asked the station to
undertake an audience survey in order to determine the actual number of
listeners to its LW broadcasts of religious programmes; they also
questioned how prepared this radio audience is for a digital switchover;
and suggested RTÉ determine which areas of the country (north and south)
will be affected by the decision.

They also appealed to RTÉ to improve FM broadcasting across the North as
"good listening reception is inconsistent."

RTÉ has been broadcasting on Longwave 252 since 2004. The signal covers
the island of Ireland and reaches Britain. Now, however, only 2% of its
listenership is on longwave. Most modern radios do not have longwave, and
the quality is poor.

According to Tom McGuire, Head of RTÉ Radio 1, the availability of the
radio service through new digital platforms provides a much improved sound
quality and broader access for all programmes.
( <www.catholicireland.net>  By Susan_Gately - 16 Oct, 2014)

LW 252  The imminent closure of the Irish public broadcaster's longwave
service we reported last week has been postponed until January 19, 2015.
Its original shut down date was next week, October 27.

The Managing Director of RTÉ Radio Jim Jennings plans to travel to the UK
to meet with community groups affected by the loss of service to see what
other solutions might be found for them. Longwave is the only RTÉ radio
service that reaches the UK, though the global Irish diaspora can also
listen online.

The outcry over the closure was greater than expected, but Jennings says
the longwave service is still set to be shuttered.

The loss of RTÉ longwave is part of a global trend of national
broadcasters cutting back or eliminating international-serving longwave
and shortwave transmissions, especially those oriented towards countries
with significant internet penetration. For instance, the BBC dropped
shortwave service to North American more than a decade ago, in response to
declining shortwave listenership and the availability of the World Service
online and via public radio stations in the US and Canada.

Still, listeners in cars, older audiences and those without reliable home
internet are left out as these services sunset. It will be interesting to
learn what results from Jennings' discussions with the UK-based community
groups. Will he convince them to take up internet listening, or will there
be a creative third-way solution?

re: Last day of REE on SW.

Tuned in for the last moments of REE SW around 2145 UT Oct 14. Fair signal
in Spanish on 17850 kHz, also fair in Portuguese on 17595 kHz. Both
carriers off at 2155 UT. Other listed frequencies just a flutter or not
heard.

Earlier in the day: At 1630 UT good signal in Spanish on 17715 kHZ, fair
in Spanish on 21610 kHz. Between 1700 and 1900 UT somewhat improved signal
in Arabic on 21610 kHz, still good in Spanish on 17715 kHz. Poor on
17755 kHz. Other listed frequencies also just a flutter or unheard.

I first heard REE in the mid 1960's. In those days the three English
broadcasts to North America on 49 and 31 meters had rather mediocre
reception in Texas, but I best recall Spanish on 9360 kHz which would be
on all evening with a solid signal, along with good reception on 25 meters
(11800? kHz) The inauguration of more powerful transmitters at Noblejas in
the early 1970's greatly improved reception I recall some blockbuster
signals didn't they have the ability to combine two 350kW units to get
700kW?

{I can only remember combined 2 x 500 kW = 1000 kW net at Russian language
US Radio Liberty Playa de Pals relay site in northeastern Spain. wb.}

Goodbye to REE on SW, and thank you. That leaves Albania and Romania as
the last Europeans with English to NoAM. Who is next on the chopping
block?

USA   9330v-CUSB // weaker but sufficient and synchronized 7490v kHz,
UT Sat Oct 18 at 0118 UT, WBCQ with 'Allan Weiner Worldwide' running well
over an hour from 0000 UT, as AW is reading e-mail from Jason that he will
be imitating Wolfman Jack on a Hallowe'en special tribute Friday night Oct
31 [UT Sat Nov 1], to be on 94.7, i.e. WBCQ FM, which is apparently now
known as Kixx FM, as per contact e-mail kixxfm@gmail.com and will also
"take over some SW frequencies" at the same time as AWWW, which means
after 0000 UT, but not specified which will be which.

Back to the present: tonight, unusually, 5110v-CUSB is not // the others
for AWWW which normally occupies all three or four transmitters, but with
some other music.

AW next answers an inquiry about how is Dr. Scott Becker doing? He's fine
but back in Kansas following death of his father 6 days ago; expected to
return to Florida (is Allan already there for the winter?)

AWWW finally wrapping up at 0129 UT after his prayer; while 5110 kHz
unknown show is talking graphically about stripteasing. By 0131 they are
all split: 9330 kHz with a pseudo-Amos & Andy montage mixed with
discussion of where to put chickens, music, a typical Area 51 filler bit;
7490 kHz playing some unknown music, still on at 0153 UT recheck by when
9330 kHz is off, and 5110 kHz music is swing. No sign of any 15420-CUSB
kHz.

No attempt by me to measure all these variants, but the latest from
Wolfgang Bueschel: "Here are some logs of tonight 23-24 UT Oct 17, via
remote access to SDR unit at Massachusetts near Boston on eastern coast of
US North America. USA WBCQ shortwave outlet footprints:

by Bulgarian National Radio.

Oldrich Cip (...) welcomed other distinguished guests, namely Nedialko
Miltchev from the Broadcasting Division of the ITU, and Georgi Kolev from
the Bulgarian Communications Regulation Commission. Oldrich said it was a
great pleasure to welcome Salim Al Nomani, who was representing the Arab
States Broadcasting Union.

Horst Scholz began by quoting some sentences from the original minutes of
the first HFCC meeting held in Pamporovo in 1990. (...) then announced the
retirement of two colleagues who had been involved with the work of HFCC
for many years. The HFCC wished Russell Erickson (IBB) and Walter
Brodowsky (MBR) good luck and a long and happy retirement. (...)

Public Authority for Radio and TV, and the Arab States Broadcasting Union.
The date of this A-15 conference was confirmed as 1st-5th February 2015.
(...) B-15 Conference. Horst confirmed that the B-15 conference would take
place in Brisbane, Australia, 24th-28th August 2015. (...) B16 Conference.
Jeff said that the HFCC Steering Board had received an offer and proposal
from Broadcast Belgium to host the B-16 conference in Miami, Florida.

New HFCC Members/Changes: new applications for membership of the
Association. Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT),
Bangladesh Network for Radio and Communication (BNNRC); State Committee
for Radio Frequencies of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

The first applicant was the Ministry of Communication and Information
Technology of Indonesia (MCIT). MCIT attended the Paris conference as an
Observer and they have requested full membership of the HFCC. The second
applicant was the Bangladesh Network for Radio and Communication (BNNRC).
BNNRC had been interested in the Jakarta IRDR Trial, and they were now
seeking full membership of the HFCC.

Finally, Oldrich reported that HFCC had received a letter from the State
Committee for Radio Frequencies of the Republic of Uzbekistan (SCR). The
letter stated that SCR had undergone an internal reorganisation. The full
title of the authority was now the State Committee for Communications,
Informatization and Telecommunication Technologies of the Republic of
Uzbekistan.
