ALBANIA   7425  on Oct 29 at 0230 UT, R. Tirana audible but very poor;
about equal level to 7420 kHz Iran which has more fading but also more
modulation. Should Albania go to 49mb? 6100 and 6105 kHz appear to be
clear.

7425  on Oct 30 at 0244 UT, again very poor. Is something wrong at Shijak,
low-powered instead of 100 kW? Nearby Greece maintains good signal on
higher band, 9420 kHz. Romania on 7395 kHz also has a much better signal
than Tirana, but it's always superior with newer 300 kW Continentals and
high-gain antennas.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld Oct 30)

7465  Oct 31 at 0020 UT, I am now checking R. Tirana's Albanian hour to
North America. Very poor carrier, can't make anything out altho there is
no interference, so this is just as bad as the 0230 UT English sce
on 7425 kHz.

7425  Oct 31 at 0240 UT, again a very poor carrier, unreadable; adjacent
Iran in Spanish on 7420 kHz is better at poor level and can be heard with
concentration.

[later]  Re: More 7425, 7465 reports. It's not always poor here in CIRAF
7. This is much below normal. Let us hope propagation conditions will
improve, if Shijak is operating normally.

7464.982 kHz heard at 2030 UT on Oct 30th, R Tirana's German service, but
only far away in northern Europe U.K./IRL and Scandinavia. far behind the
national borders of the central European German-speaking countries.

Selection of 7 MHz channel towards Switzerland, Austria and Germany is far
too high tonight. R Tirana Shijak 7465 kHz transmission signal skips(!)
over our head in German speaking countries TONIGHT!
Comment: 6 MHz selection frequency usage would be the better choice
tonight.

7464.982 kHz exact frequency footprint logged at 2101 UT during the Radio
Tirana English sce to GB and Ireland.

And signal strength was much reliable of S=9+20dB or -49dBm strength
measured at 2107 UT.

News at 2106 UT heard, "students in Africa and Nigeria item...".
2108 UT end of news reading.
2108-21.11 UT review of news paper.
2111-2114 UT girl singer in Albanian flavor.
2114 UT "World Bank" analyse report comment on Albanians banks.
2117-2122 UT Landscape report feature on "Laguna Carrera(?)", greatest
and biggest lagoon in Albania.
2122 UT Flute music started, into girls singer pop music with
Albanian/Balcan area flavor.
2126:50 UT End of English program.
Radio Tirana interval signal jingle theme started.
2126:33 UT sudden cut-off Shijak transmitter, midst on IS theme music.

7 or 6 MHz frequency selection of Radio Tirana transmissions into central
European target zone ?

When using only a single frequency band for Radio Tirana broadcasts on
shortwave, such a question is occurs now and then. Therefore one must draw
for a few days the situation of large sunspots into consideration.

The unnecessary skipping the 7465 kHz signal in France, Italy and
German-speaking countries can be repeated in the coming weeks,
or not even occur again ?

7424.980  footprint of Radio Tirana Shijak transmission via Western Europe
1st hop, towards North America target zone 7-9, heard here from tune-in on
SDR unit at 0240 to 0259:00 UT on Oct 31.

Transmission was well powerful observed of S=9+30dB or -47dBm signal level
on North Sea coast of the Netherlands.
No QRM of adjacent 7420 kHz Iran channel on excellent SDR equipment.

Comment
on adjacent and nearby channel coverage at 0230-0300 UT.
Other free channel nearby was former Greece radio used channel
7475(also adjacent free 7470/7480) kHz too.

7420 IRIB Kamalabad in Spanish to Latin America at 259degr,
powerful S=9+40dB or -35dBm.

7460 Radio Payeme-Doost (Bahai) in Persian via Grigoriopol Moldova,
S=9+20dB or -53dBm strength. Splatter also on 7455 and 7465 kHz,

Checked also various remote receivers in Ireland, U.K., Netherlands,
Belgium, North Western Germany, noted with same signals.

0253 UT "Good Bye" from Radio Tirana, followed by Flute music and local
Albanian pop singer female/girl til 0257:36 UT.
Radio Tirana interval signal til 0258:40 UT, when DWL Kigali Rwanda
interval signal started/heard underneath.

0259:00 UT on Oct 31 switch OFF transmitter in Shijak.

I guess a 100 kW signal will only cover these three zones 9,4,8 in CAN and
USA properly, under fair propagation condition,

but will often poor in zone 7 mid-US in mid winter?

Even 500/250/100 kW DWL at 320/325degr azimuth had always difficulties to
reach TX and CA target propperly in western US. See my separate monitor
mail of tonight, Shijak signal was powerful from 1st down signal hop
location, approx. 1.600 kilometers distance in Netherlands Belgium and
northerly etc.

7389.979  footprint this Oct 31 at 0830-0850 UT morning, when checked for
short time slot piece, the Radio Tirana Shijak transmission in Albanian.
Endless interview talk of a lady in 08.30 - 08.40 UT slot.

Comment of steep angle antenna transmission on Oct 31:
Nothing real heard on Moscow, Scandinavia, Ireland and U.K. posts,
like greater 2000 kilometers distance.

Belgium     S=8 or -84dBm at Guido Schotmans' location unit.
Italy       S=9+25dB -51dBm near Bologna, Rimini, also at Verona,
            same signal strength between Naples, Apulia, Sicily.
Netherlands S=9+20dB -58dBm in all Holland places...
Poland      S=9+10dB -74dBm in Warsaw.
Germany, Switzerland, Austria S=9+15dB -64dBm, same level also here in
Stuttgart Germany.

ANTARCTIC   LRA 36 reception.

We cruised today off southern Chile, latitude 38 deg S. Noted LRA36
pinning the strength meter on my little Eton e100. Unfortunately missed
the sign on but monitored from 19:55 UTC on October 28, and hoped to hear
the sign off, but by 21:15 UT, they were still going strong.

Frankly, I found the programming quite amateurish and boring (sorry to
say). Single female announcer with extremely rapid diction often over or
under music made following the program rather difficult. No TOH ID or news
heard. I did record over an hour though which I'll listen to later without
the noise of the wind and seas. 5 meter seas tonight giving us a major
ride! 73, Walt Salmaniw

re: LRA 36 reception.
Walt, - Quite interesting ... the fascination with LRA-36 from Antarctica
is clearly a distance phenomena, not a programming orientation. It takes
good, clear reception to make the distinction.

9400  on Oct 29 at 0525 UT, singing presumably Kurdish from "Radyoya Denge
Kurdistane", fair with flutter and no QRM now; this block is via
Grigoriopol PRIDNESTROVYE-Moldova, ex-11510 kHz, where it's also ex-circa
1300 UT when we had just been enjoying good reception until end of A-14;
now 9400 kHz collides with FEBC Philippines in our mornings, no good.

BAHRAIN   9745  Radio Bahrain hrd Nov 3rd from Perseus site in Scotland
from 2251 UT tune with nice signal but hvy co-channel QRM from Han Sheng
Voice of Kuanghua - normally the Han Sheng xmtr is fading by 2200-2230 UT
but not so today - remained very much in play past 2300 while Bahrain was
fading between S2 and S4. Contemporary ME vocals with recorded program ID
by man at 2253 UT as "98.4" fol by short Arabic anmts and back into music.
Recorded anmt by man w/ echo at 2320.5 UT fol by man ancr in Arabic to
2321 UT. SINPO 3V4/3/5/3/3. The "98.4" I believe refers to a relay of the
Shabab (Youth) FM bcst which would explain the contemporary style music.

(Arnie Coro-CUB  CO2KK  RHC - Radio Havana Cuba, via /
and added "DXers Unlimited" + "En Contacto" hobby program items,
this I did inserted in the table to the best of conscience; transformed
from Excel into pure .txt format by wb. wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 31)

For example instead of 4 x 4 dipols, 0.8 at 340 degrees azimuth, the
schedule says "Chicago", because that is the center of the beam !!!

We are using the nice HR 4x4, 0.8 curtain of dipoles with passive wires
reflector antenna at the Bauta site that is aiming at Río de Janeiro
azimuth, BECAUSE it happens to provide a very good coverage to the
Antilles too, especially the islands like Martinique where both French and
or Creole are spoken !

Arnaldo Coro told me also, Creole and French on 11760 kHz channel at
Río de Janeiro mainlobe azimuth is meant mainly for French Antilles,
Caribbean French speaking countries, French Guiana etc. Transmission
originate from (older) Bauta, Cuba, site. Not from Quivican Titan site.

6070 is not going to be used by RHC at this B-14. Although, if you check
both HFBC of the ITU Geneva registration and HFCC ... 6070 kHz is NOT
registered by Canada, and the same holds for 6185 Mexico's Radio Educacion
and the leftover, of the real, now non existent HCJB in Ecuador for
6050 kHz ...

English ends at 0700 UTC, but we keep Spanish running via the Internet,
and the propagation analysis hinted me that 60 meters was going to be in
good shape during the winter season at that time ... So it was a good idea
to keep the 100 kW on 5040 kHz Tropical Band outlet on the air...

That will be from 2 to 3 AM Local Time in La Habana.

BTW, it seems likely that I will be able to test on 3365 kHz 90 meters
Tropical Band Frequency that we once registered for Radio Rebelde ... This
time when we do the test it is going to be with a 50 kW transmitter of the
same type used for Radio Progreso 4765 kHz in 60mb, that will stay on that
frequency all along the B-14 ITU period.

The timing of the 90 meters band test will be announced and a special QSL
is in the works...

Do not expect 3365 kHz tests until later this year, but they will be done,
as I am looking forward to a very bad tail end of solar cycle 24 and a
worst than ever in radio history cycle 25. So it is a good idea to have a
90 meters Tropical Band Frequency too.

At the request of many listeners, and despite the big workload I am
pleasing them by doing a 5 minutes segment on the EN CONTACTO program,
that deals with HF propagation and technical topics ... I used to do it,
but had to quit because of it requires a days in advance recording session
... Anyway I am doing the recording on Friday, so the HF propagation
update can be located closer to the day the program goes on the air.

DENMARK   243 LW  -  Visit to Kalundborg Radiostation.
On Oct 18, nine Danish members of the DSWCI and 3 wives visited Kalundborg
Radiostation and had an excellent presentation by our member Jens
Christian Seeberg. Jens and his Philippine wife Editha started with a
delicious lunch.

The transmitter site at Gisselore point west of Kalundborg was selected in
1925, because it has a central location in Denmark, is surrounded by
seawater and had good telephoneline connections to the studio's in
Copenhagen. Thus a LW transmitter on 245 (later 243) kHz and a MW
transmitter on 1061 (later 1062) kHz were built at Gisselore. The first
one was a 5 kW British transmitter which was inaugurated on Aug 29, 1927.
It was replaced by a 60 kW Standard Electric LW transmitter in 1934 which
could reach the Faroe Islands and Iceland, the latter was also Danish at
that time. It was manned by 25 employees. During the Nazi-German
occupation of Denmark in 1940-1945, it had the highest priority for the
Germans to control the Danish transmitters, so that only texts written or
approved by them were broadcast to the Danes.

In 1950 a new 300 kW Telefunken transmitter was purchased. In the same
decade an extensive FM-network was build in Denmark. In 2011 a modern
Canadian 50 kW LW transmitter took over. It mainly has an audience of
Danish maritime and Danes travelling in Europe. Today the transmitter is
unmanned and remotely controlled.

Reception reports on 243 kHz LW are welcomed by Jens Christian Seeberg,
Teracom, Banestroget 19-21, DK 2630 Taastrup, Denmark, or
<jens.seeberg -at- teracom.dk>
and verified by a beautiful QSL-card.

re Greece: ERT Open, 15650 at 20 UT on air tonight Nov 1st, but now at
2150 UT check, I heard ERT-Open on 15630 kHz instead, so frequency move
occured at 2100 UT Nov 1, on 105 degr or 285 degr on 15630 now ?

Rather international English language Hard Rock music from ERT-open Avlis
heard this UT morning at 0720 UT on Nov 2.

!9415! +4 Hz upperside
11645  +5 Hz upperside
15630 +17 Hz upperside.

all three channel transmissions suffer by bad audio in pause of rock music

SPAIN   Support our Platform in Defence of the Spanish Foreign Radio /
Radio Exterior de Espana (SFR/REE) short wave.

Dear WWDXC friends,
from the platform in defence of the Spanish Foreign Radio/Radio Exterior
de Espana (SFR/REE) short wave, we ask your to support us. So, you simply
need that you respond this mail (with copy to

<plataformaondacorta -at- gmail.com>

stating that you support our effort to achieve that they replaced the REE
shortwave broadcast and that you will share with all your collaborators,
partners, donors and volunteers the link to sign the change.org platform:

<http://www.change.org/p/a-los-ministros-de-educaci%C3%B3n-y-cultura-y-de-
asuntos-exteriores-queremos-que-radio-exterior-de-espa%C3%B1a-ree-vuelva-
a-emitir-en-onda-corta>

With your support by email, we can tell that you add to our efforts, so
that we will gain more weight that allows us to press more RTVE to restore
a public service which was the only channel of information which had aid
workers, sailors and Spaniards who perform their functions around the
world; as well as to all those interested in Spain, its people and
culture.

As you know that the REE online emission only is accessible in a few
cases, since our work lead us to places in the world where the technology
is still very precarious.

The platform is composed by the following organizations: FAPE, EPHF, AER,
ORPAGU, CEPESCA and multitude of regional coordinators of development
NGOs, associations of journalists, collective of guilds.

Yesterday, October 28, we create us the platform and we have now requested
audience with the Vice-President of the Government and the President of
Parliament and the President of RTVE.

Your support is essential to get us to listen.

For its part, the AER has created a miniblog on this issue:

USA   Glenn: If you have a chance, can you check our 11550 and 11580 kHz
frequencies, which are airing simultaneously from 1800 to 0000 UT? Here we
are hearing some audio mixing between the two. But it's impossible to get
a good idea here on the site; we need to have someone listen who's far
away to see if you hear any secondary audio in the background on either or
both of these frequencies. I realize they're not beamed in your direction,
but maybe audible anyway? Thanks

er zum Nordwestdeutschen Rundfunk (spaeter Sender Freies Berlin). 1958
wurde er in Koeln Chef vom Dienst in der Nachrichtenredaktion der
Deutschen Welle und 1968 bis zum Eintritt ins Rentenalter 1987 Leiter des
