re KNLS Alaska repariert.
Test am 18., seit gestern 20.8. regelmaessig mit 2 TX in der Luft ...

Ihr habt die heutige KNLS Nicht-Aussendung 9655 richtig geschildert,
seit 0755 UT habe ich 5x in Japan, Australien, Alberta und Moskau
gecheckt, heute NIL Aussendung im 31 mb, bisher um 08, 09, and 11 UT aus
Anchor Point.

In jedem Fall ist es aber die aktuelle Tabelle die KNLS requested
Kanalbelegung seit dem 18.8.2015. Das 11870 kHz Signal kommt sehr propper
und mit sauberem audio Signal in Nagoya und Tokyo an, damit deckt man
Kamchatka, Wladivostok, Ostchina, Korea, Japan, und noch Taiwan ab.

Wer je mit ITU CIRAF Zonen zu tun hatte,
die KNLS Ziel Ciraf Zonen lesen sich sehr exotisch.

Heute Aug 21 ist's nix 'on air' mit der 2. TX Einheit bei KNLS,
1100-1200 9610 NLS 100 kW 285 deg to Far East AS Chinese

seit 15 Minuten 'sieht' man zwar einen starken Traeger auf 9610 kHz, aber

ARGENTINA   6070v  RAE Buenos Aires. The severely distorted signal jumping
and drifting around this freq is indeed RAE. Found the signal came on at
0954:47 UT then mx started shortly later. Caught a M anncr giving an ID at
0959 UT, 5+1 long time ticks at 1000 UT, then usual multi-lingual ID
sequence for abt 2 min. It was just clear enough in AM mode with a width
bandwidth. Was way up on 6071.3 kHz (roughly) when the signal came on,
down to 6070.2 kHz at 1000 UT, and 6069.7 kHz by 1016 UTC on 21 August.

Tropical Bands Conditions expected to be very good for the next few weeks
as we enter into the equinoctial DX period ... Cuba has 4765 kHz Radio
Progreso, 5025 kHz Radio Rebelde, and 5040 kHz Radio Habana Cuba, and I am
still working with my colleagues at Radio Cuba to start broadcasting once
again on the 90 meters Tropical Band ... Suggested frequencies 3350 and
3365 kHz ... and you can send your suggestion to

<arnie -at- rhc dot cu>

This is an old SNIEG air cooled transmitter that we will run at around
30 kiloWatts into a NVIS dipole antenna ... operation planned for between
local sunset and about two o'clock in the morning local time.

Reports for RHC 5040 kHz can be sent to

CUBA/USA   Morning of Aug 14 at 1427 UT, the big US-flag-raising ceremony
is underway at the embassy in Habana. SOS Kerry is speaking on RHC 15730,
15370, 15230, 13740, 11950, 11860 kHz at least, and also on R. Marti,
13605 kHz well atop the jamming and 11930 kHz buried by it plus ca change.

Both stations are intent on converting what he is saying into Spanish
rather than the original English (but he does break into schoolboy-Spanish
for a portion).

RHC coverage is running 10 seconds ahead of MSNBC, and guess what, CNN is
NOT covering it live, instead an appearance by Jeb. It is also live on one
of the C-SPANs, but without the offset measured. Nice to hear the Star
Spangled Banner on RHC at 1437 UT; the band followed with Stars & Stripes
Forever, and God Bless America (but I was hearing those clearly only on
cable TV). Earlier the Cuban NA played in a much shorter version than we
are accustomed to on RHC.

9550.000 exact frequency. Unidentified Arabic music station, 2015-08-15,
tuned in 0902 UT, til bib tone at 0910 UT cl-down.

Weak tiny signal, hopefully signal will be better in Oct to Febr season.
Morning Arabic mx station heard often in the past in 9.40 ... 9.70 MHz

Listen attached ogg. format audio file, taken in remote SDR Perseus unit

Noted also on remote SDR in Moscow Russia.
Arabic mx lasted only 0900-0910 UT close down. Weak signal in Italy
and Russia too.

I was astonished, to measure the 9550.000 exact fingerprint frequency.

some Insider told me:
"Well I have been following that music station for sometime now ... they
are on 9500/9550/9600 kHz varying from 09:00 to 12:00 UT, but can't make a
steady schedule. But I think this is the Egyptian station E25 which used
to transmit numbers on 9450 kHz around 1200-1300 UT. No ID given, just the
normal test tone of Egypt followed by songs varying from classic old
Egyptian songs to up to date songs released a few years back in Egypt."

INDONESIA   3904.981  RRI Marauke

9525.979   S=9 or -76dBm signal strength heard on remote SDR unit at
Brisbane downunder. Gamelan music played and explained by female Arabic
announcer at 1642 UT on Aug 20.

9525.980 kHz was even poorly logged at S=3 with carrier in 09.55 to 10.00
UT slot on Wed Aug 19, Voice of INS Jakarta Cimanggis pre-program 10 UT
procedure.

9525.980 kHz typical fingerprint carrier visible on Aug 18
at 09.56 UT, just before program schedule start at 10.00 UT.
Even noted in central Europe.

I checked the 9526v range at 10 UT tune-in on Aug 16, but heard nothing on
that channel. Despite a lot of other stations of that AS/PAC region heard
at same time.

Now when tuned-in around 1125 UT again, VoINS Jakarta Cimanggis in Chinese
language is ON AIR AGAIN today Aug 16.

Fingerprint measurement shows 9525.979 exact frequency, but at remote SDR
unit in Brisbane Queensland heard a S=8  M U F F L E D  BUZZY AUDIO signal
type.

I'll try Voice of Indonesia later that day, when propagation path works
fine from Indonesia to Europe approx. from 17 ... 21 UT.

... this Aug 19 morning, although R. Australia was booming on 9580kHz as
always, the rest of the 31 meter band was pretty dead at 1300z. So I
missed VOI signing on in english yet again. By 1330z it had improved

- recent QSL:
Gaweylon Tibetan Radio Program
26/2 Old Rajpur
P.O.Rajpur
Dehradun 248009, India.

Director Anil R. Alfred
1991 daily programme of 15 minutes via FEBA Radio Seychelles, magazine
type of programming with about 2-3 minutes explicit Christian content,
programme backed by Words of Hope (Reformed Church), targeted audience not
only Tibetans in Tibet, but also the Diaspora in neighbouring countries,
especially India.

1993 expansion to 30 minutes, expansion of Christian content response rate
in the nineties: several hundred letters per year.

1996 start of the Norwegian backed Voice of Tibet via FEBA Radio in direct
connection with Gaweylon. The opposition programmes were jammed by China
("Easy FM"), while the Christian programmes remained unharmed in line with
a long held "gentlemen agreement" between FEBC/FEBA and the Chinese
Government of "no politics-no jamming".

1997 Voice of Tibet on other stations, allegedly because of Chinese
pressure on the Government of the Seychelles.

2003 final close down of FEBA Radio Seychelles, Gaweylon now on brokered
time, any "secrecy" of sites, transmitters powers, azimuths to be blamed
on the broker.

2012 programme delivery via the internet, earlier tape or CD by mail which
meant up to six weeks delivery time to FEBA Radio Delhi.

2015 internet site  <http://gaweylon.com>
with an extensive programme archive, US partner Words of Hope

<https://woh.org/work/ministry/tibetan>

on a historical note:
While Protestant missions to Asia are a more recent phenomenon, there was
a much earlier presence of Christians in India, Tibet, Mongolia or China.

Much earlier Christian testimony to Tibet, by the Nestorian Church in the
8th century the latest, was wiped out by Buddhism. It must however also be
noted that Nestorianism was not recognised as orthodox by the Greek/Latin
Churches of Europe.

USA   7416-USB, UT Saturday Aug 15 at 0125 UT, some US paramilitary net,
with carefully foneticized traffic, some numbers, then AUG 15. From:
NHQ/DOKO; TO: Shiprock; Subject: W.T. [something]; break;
Text: each group twice: 523BD, DW7CB ...

This jargon leads right to Civil Air Patrol, e.g. in this document about
an exercise last May:

<http://mersar.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/CW15_final_updated.pdf>

but I don't see what DOKO stands for; NHQ is pretty obvious.

I don't seem to have any recent logs on this frequency, but in October of
2011, CAP on 7416 kHz was cited as the reason WBCQ had to get off its long
established 7415 kHz (pirate heritage) and go to 7490 kHz, as in my log
report of that era:

"USA [and non]. Glenn, WBCQ has notified me that the FCC has given them
until Monday, October 24, 2011, to vacate their 7415 kHz frequency. The
new frequency will be 7490 kHz. I expect Al will address this in further
detail on his show this evening at 0000 UT on 7415 kHz. Regards,
(Larry Will, Area 51, 2036 UT Oct 22, 2011, dxld)

Yes, he did. Summary from first third of 'Allan Weiner Worldwide': FCC
says it is because the Civil Air Patrol has a new HF fixed communications
system on 7416 kHz. 7415 kHz was WBCQ's #1 frequency since it went on the
air Sept 8, 1998. A good run, but have always known that operating on an
out-of-band frequency is subject to getting bumped to another frequency if
the US government requires (gh)"

USA   Schedule changes for WBCQ The Planet, eff 13 August 2015

Good Friends Radio Network, was daily 0100-0400 UT on 9330 kHZ, is
discontinued; simulcast of Art Bell's Midnight In the Desert, was Monday-
Saturday 0400-0700 UT on 9330 kHz, is discontinued; Overcomer Ministry,
was Tuesday-Saturday 0000-0400 UT on 5110 kHz, is discontinued.

Art Bell's "Midnight In the Desert" will continue on 7490 kHz. The only
remaining programming on 9330 kHz is The Full Gospel Hour, Tuesday-
Saturday 0000-0100 UT on 9330 kHz.
(via Larry Will-USA, dxld Aug 15)

'Midnight [sic] in the Desert' presumably continues on CFRX 6070 kHz and
with some hum, on WTWW 5085 kHz, where it's probably a financial liability
rather than asset.

USA   7515.00  on August 14 at 0518 UT, surprise new frequency of WEWN
Spanish, ex-7555 kHz, which had that military hash from France on the hi
side - forever (well, at least for years, ever since WEWN started using
it, I think). They finally caught on that a change was necessary. FCC and
HFCC still show old listing:

7555 0500-1300 10,11 EWN 250 220 30 206 1234567 290315-251015 Spa EWN FCC

BTW, FCC still hasn't issued an updated version 2 of their A-15 schedule,
just version 1 from the outset:

<http://transition.fcc.gov/ib/sand/neg/hf_web/A15FCC01.TXT>

But that's better than WEWN's own website, with schedule expiring 29 March
2015!
<http://www.ewtn.com/spanish/Frequencias_radio.asp>

This complete schedule for three transmitters in two languages, however,
is for A-15, and guess what, it too still shows 7555 kHz:

<http://www.ewtn.com/radio/freq.htm>

So was 7515 kHz just a test, or even a mistake? I haven't yet caught an
on-air announcement, but there's a good chance that is outdated too.

7515 kHz looks like a good clear choice, at least as far as avoiding other
broadcasters in this fixed utility band: HFCC has nothing during those
hours on 7515 or 7510 kHz, and on 7520 kHz, only Delhi at 0645-1100 UT
toward ENE (if it's not wooden). Aoki lists that for Nepal and is already
on the ball with new 7515 kHz for WEWN, effective Aug 13, at 0500-1300 UT.

Re: 5055 pending from Australia, Vanuatu?

SHORTWAVE - HF - UPDATE (August 14)
"The ACMA recently opened up a new channel in the 60 meter "tropic band"
for HF Domestic broadcasting. The new frequency of 5055 kHz has now been
assigned bringing a total of 5 frequencies now allocated to HF / Shortwave
domestic broadcasting in Australia.

2355 kHz [who? - Ron], 2368.5 kHz [Radio Symban - Ron] (120 meter band),
3210 kHz [relay of Vintage FM? - Ron] (90 meter band), 5045 kHz, 5055 kHz
[both Ozy Radio? - Ron](60 meter band)."

It should be remember that this past February, Craig Allen wrote to me:
"We will be back soon on 5045 kHz. with more power, 1 kW. Ozy radio,"
which never happened. So when Craig now says "soon," we will have to wait
and see what happens. Almost daily I do check 5045, 5050, 5055 kHz, from
1130 to 1330 UT, just to see what is going on there. Hope the latest news
turns out to be timely.
