CANADA/CUBA   6070  on Nov 9 at 0101 UT, news and traffic from CFRX
Toronto which finally has its frequency cleared, as RHC has moved off for
the season, effective tonight. It's still a bigsig on 6060, but a bother
only during hi-pitched news sounders. Now if only CFRX can keep its
transmitter on the air, or fix it ASAP, dissuading vultures like RHC from
usurping the frequency again!
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld Nov 9)

re 6070 kHz RHC/CFRX channel. -  Arnie Coro from RHC did comment recently

Frequencies that are NOT REGISTERED at the ITU HFBC Database in UN Geneva
are ILLEGALLY using the radio frequency spectrum, according to lawyers
specialized in international telecommunications law. Those lawyers also
are in favor of direct station to station contacts to deal with Frequency
incompatibilities, as a first step...

As you can check the Canadian government has not registered that station
to the ITU HFBC Database in UN Geneva either directly or by means of the
non official negotiating group known as the HFCC. I told someone from ODXA
in Canada that once CFRX Toronto had it back on the air I will move to
another frequency ASAP, as it has been done...

The B-14 schedule here is now fully implemented, and we are waiting for
honest reception reports from decent persons to find out how it is
working. The registration at the HFBC ITU Geneva of the 9535 kHz EX Radio
Exterior de España frequency from Noblejas to the Americas did not exist
for B-14 season, so it is obvious that the frequency managers at REE knew
well in advance about the closing down of the short wave broadcasts at
Noblejas.

We did register it after finding that the channel was empty, and also to
keep Spanish language on that frequency for the benefit of long time
listeners of now dead REE. Recent news say that the fate of the Noblejas
transmitting station has not yet been decided ... but it may follow the
same path as Radio Sweden, Bonaire relay of Radio Nederland, the Calera
del Tango in Chile and possibly in cue Sackville and Carriari del Potosi,
Costa Rica ... sites of Radio Canada and Radio Exterior de España... 73

Shortwave masts demolished. The DARC report a piece of radio history came
to an end on November 4 with the demolition of the Wertachtal shortwave
transmitter masts.

The shortwave station came into operation for the Munich Olympics in 1972.
At the time it was the largest shortwave transmitter in Europe with 29
masts up to 125m high. The first test transmissions began on April 10,
1972, using the 500 kW transmitters. The demolition of the facilities
started in May and the plant will be completely demolished by the end of
the year.

Deutscher Amateur Radio Club (DARC)

Once the largest short-wave transmission facility in Europe. KW-
broadcasting system Wertachtal is demolished.

A piece of radio history comes to an end: At the 1972 put into operation
shortwave transmitter Wertachtal at Buchloe extensive mast explosions were
carried out on 4 November. The demolition of the facilities had started
already in May. By the end of 2014, the plant will be completely
demolished.
Source: Peter Jenus, DJ8XW

Already since May 2013 by Media Broadcast GmbH (previously supported by
the Deutsche Bundespost) operated station has broadcast any program.
Installs were once 14 stations with 500 kW of power and two channels with
100 kW power. Accordingly, the antenna system had considerable
proportions: The total of 34 steel lattice towers reaching up to 125
meters. Through the night lighting the towers were still visible in more
than 20 kilometers away. The three star-shaped antenna streets had a
length of 1 km, 1.3 km and 1.9 km in length.

Parts of the plant have been moved to other locations. So the latest,
installed in 2003 transmitter was moved to the transmission system Nauen.

Some equipment took over the Austrian Broadcasting Services GmbH for its
transmission plant in ORS Moosbrunn, Austria.

Probably coming from IRIB Tehran, Iran, we had often to report of
INTERMODULATIONS on Iranian high power 500 kW transmission centers, on
days with excellent shortwave propagation though ...

Both Kamalabad next to Tehran and central Sirjan tx sites contain older
Telefunken 500 kW transmitter gear.

I GUESS that 21600 kHz Russian service and 21510 kHz Swahili service of
IRIB Tehran foreign service, did originate BOTH from Kamalabad site today.
So Intermodulation formula as usual

21510 x 2 = 43020 kHz minus 21600 = 21420 kHz.

Another intermodulation BC signal should be occur symetrically on 21690
kHz at same time - ... until one of the fundamentals switch-off.

Voice of Russia / Radio Sputnik, new branding.

Sputnik, a major new media brand with modern multimedia centers in dozens
of countries, will go live November 10. All of Sputnik's multimedia
centers located in major world capitals will maintain their own websites
and broadcast from local radio stations.

SPUTNIK AUDIENCE "Sputnik's audience includes billions of people around
the world, who, I'm sure, have had enough of the aggressive mainstream
propaganda on the air, in newspapers and on television in many countries,
sowing discord and trampling international law, common sense, the truth
and the facts," Kiselev said. "People are looking for an alternative, and
we are offering one by making Sputnik programming available worldwide. The
demand is clearly there."

LANGUAGES - Sputnik creates its own multimedia content in Russian, Abkhaz,
Azerbaijani, Arabic, Armenian, Chinese, Crimean Tatar, Dari, English,
Estonian, French, Finnish, German, Georgian, Hindi, Japanese, Kazakh,
Kyrgyz, Latvian, Moldovan, Ossetian, Polish, Portuguese, Pashto, Spanish,
Serbian, Tajik, Turkish, Uzbek, and Ukrainian.

SPUTNIK BROADCASTERS
Each of Sputnik's multimedia centers in London, Washington, D.C., New
Delhi, Cairo, Montevideo, Beijing, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Istanbul,
Paris, Buenos Aires, Belgrade, Helsinki, Minsk, Kiev, Tashkent, Astana,
Bishkek, Dushanbe, Sukhumi, Tskhinvali, Tbilisi, Yerevan, Baku and
Chisinau has anywhere from 30 to 100 staff, and all are local
professionals.

Voice of Russia on DAB (London) still displyas as VoR Voice of Russia
though IDs as Radio Sputnik. This announcement on the Voice of Russia
website this evening (10 Nov):

Voice of Russia becomes Sputnik.
Dear readers, we are excited to announce that the Voice of Russia is
changing its name and moving over to a new website. We will now be known
as Sputnik news agency and radio. You can find all the latest stories from
our London bureau here:

And these extracts from announcement on sputniknews.com (10 Nov):

Major New Media Brand 'Sputnik' Goes Live Nov 10

Sputnik, a major new media brand with modern multimedia centers in dozens
of countries, will go live November 10. All of Sputnik's multimedia
centers located in major world capitals will maintain their own websites
and broadcast from local radio stations.

In 2015, Sputnik will broadcast in 30 languages, with over 800 hours of
radio programming a day, covering over 130 cities and 34 countries.
Sputnik's exclusive content is designed for a global audience of billions
who are tired of aggressive propaganda promoting a unipolar world and want
a different perspective.
The flagship site is <www.sputniknews.com>
[...]
SPUTNIK STRATEGY

Sputnik's broadcasting is entirely geared toward local audiences.

"The agency has overhauled the underlying concept of its work," Kiselev
said. "Previously all radio stations in foreign languages were based in
Moscow, but almost all of our radio programs and websites will be
developed locally." [...]

"Sputnik's radio broadcasting will use modern formats, such as digital
DAB/DAB+ (Digital Radio Broadcasting), HD-Radio, as well as FM radio,
mobile phones and the Internet. In the medium term, the goal is to
broadcast around the clock.

"Many countries offered to let us broadcast Sputnik programs using local
FM radio stations," Simonyan said. "They are interested in having new
content in their media market and will include our programming in their
broadcasts. With the advent of this new brand and the improved quality of
our programming, we expect the regional Sputnik network in different
countries to grow as well."

Webcasting is also rapidly expanding. The goal is to update Sputnik-run
websites around the clock and deliver the most important information to
target audiences using social media.

Sputnik news feeds in English, Spanish and Arabic are available around the

11665  QSL RTI fuer Direktsendung from Tamsui Taipei site.

Die Radio Taiwan International (RTI) QSL fuer die Direktsendungen aus
Tamsui (Taiwan) ist gestern nach einer Laufzeit von nur 28 Tagen hier in
FFM eingetroffen. Die QSL zeigt die Antennenanlage der Station Tamsui und
enthaelt alle detaillierten Bestaetigungsmerkmale. Der Tamsui QSL
beigelegt war ein RTI Kartenset zum Jub 100 von Taiwan mit sechs Motiven
von sehr schoenen Kindermalereien. Vielen herzlichen Dank fuer die schoene
Empfangsbestaetigung nach Taipei.

Die RTI-HK-Ottenau-Diplomaktion mit dem Empfang der RTI-Direktsendungen
aus Tamsui und dem Empfang von Radio Tirana war mit etwa 55 Teilnehmern
ein voller Erfolg. Bihui und Eva berichten im RTI HBF begeistert von
mehreren hundert Empfangsberichten fuer die RTI-Direktsendungen im Oktober
2014 ueber die 11665 kHz Tamsui. In AM wurde mit 300 kW gesendet. Die
Sendeleistung fuer DRM ist mir nicht bekannt. Der Empfang war in
Deutschland in mittlerer bis guter Qualitaet sowohl fuer die AM- als auch
fuer die DRM-Ausstrahlung moeglich. Bihui und Eva wollen nach Abschluss
der Aktion im RTI HBF eine Uebersicht / Statistik der Empfangsberichte
bekannt geben. Allen Beteiligten beim RTI-HK-Ottenau gilt unser
Dankeschoen fuer die gelungene Diplomaktion.

Die Radio Taiwan International Hoererklubs in Ottenau und Berlin feiern im
Jahre 2015 ihr zehnjaehriges Bestehen. Der RTI Intendant hat fuer die
Hoererklubmitglieder ein Jubilaeums-T-Shirt versprochen.

U.K.    Baldock - 13 November - Small-Scale DAB Tests.

A reminder - Ofcom will be holding a technical demonstration at Baldock in
Hertfordshire on the 13th November.

The U.K. Office of Communications ('Ofcom') is soliciting comments over a
proposed trial of 'small-scale DAB,' the aim of which is to provide small
commercial and community radio stations with a low-cost means to transmit
via DAB digital radio.

Many smaller broadcasters in the U.K. have avoided DAB due to the cost,
according to a516digital.com Ofcom is proposing low-cost, small scale
trials, to see if smaller stations can be persuaded to take part in the
new technology.

Ofcom has previously conducted a trial of a small-scale DAB service in
Brighton between September of 2012 and January of 2013. Commenting on the
Brighton trial, Ofcom said "the trial successfully demonstrated an
alternative approach to DAB broadcasting, relying on 'software defined'
techniques where software running on low-cost and readily-available
computer equipment is used instead of using bespoke broadcasting equipment
or 'hardware'.  Although the equipment used in Brighton was very much in
prototype form, it served to prove that the concept of much lower cost DAB
transmission is feasible, and this could potentially offer a path to the
DAB platform for smaller stations." Ofcom will be holding a technical
demonstration at Baldock in Hertfordshire on the 13th November.

Baldock radio monitoring station - Overview.

With the ever increasing demand for radio based services, monitoring of
the radio spectrum plays a vital role today in keeping the spectrum clean
for authorised users, particularly the emergency services. It is also an
essential and integral part of the spectrum management process, producing
and evaluating data to aid spectrum managers in their day to day work. The
radio monitoring station, located near Baldock in Hertfordshire is Ofcom's
"listening ear" on the radio spectrum.

The monitoring station today has a much broader spectrum monitoring
capability than when it began life in 1929. Its original role was to
monitor the international HF radio circuits operated by the General Post
Office (GPO), which followed on from historic first trans-Atlantic radio
telephony services received at the site from New Jersey, USA...
