ALGERIA   891, 981 and 1422 kHz, the three frequencies transmitted from
Ouled Fayet near Algiers, are off since some days ago.
(Rafael Martínez, Barcelona, Catalonia - 10 Sept;
in MW Report, BrDXC-UK Communication magazine Oct 2015, page 29)

That's due of 891 kHz TX hard- and software replacement of the new solid
state TransRadio Berlin Germany made refurbishment work to TDA LW Tipaza
252 kHz {already finnished in Febr 2015}, MW Bechar 576 and Ouled Fayet
891 kHz, wb.

ARGENTINA   11710.69, on Oct 9 at 0050 UT, RAE Buenos Aires measured here
as it varies slightly, never to 11710.0 or 11711.0 kHz. Recheck at 0212 UT
to confirm it's in French, despite someone reporting English during this
hour, which was swapped several months ago with French ex-03.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld Oct 10)

Noted station ID announcement in various languages, but started at 0100 UT
on Oct 10th in Japanese language, gave station contact addresses, on

11710.766 kHz footprint at 0108 UT, S=9 in Germany,

but much weaker on northern hemisphere in FL, NJ, NY, and Edmonton Alberta
Canada,

11710.763 ... x.766 kHz, varying few Hertz up and down.

ASCENSION ISL/U.K.   7415  "Dandal Kura Radio", Babcock brokered African
language Kanuri service logged at 0511 UT on Oct 12, S=9+5dB audio level
here in southern Germany. But audio feed was NOT CLEAR, spill-over cross-
talk in background also to mention. Some undesired coupling heard so far.
Maybe sound mix in Babcock UK control room happened?

Despite next door ASC BBC 7445 kHz was totally 'clean' audio quality.

From July 2nd:
15480kHz 0700-0800UT to zone 46SE Babcock Woofferton site 250kW 165degr
Kanuri  G  BAB
(wb, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 12)

7415, on Oct 13 at 0537 UT, good signal in African language about Nigeria,
no doubt Kanuri from the US-sponsored Dandal Kura for the Boko-Haram
stronghold in the northeast. Aoki shows since July 1 this has been 250 kW,
55 degrees from ASCENSION at 05-07 UT.

Checking here since in Oct BrDXC-UK Communication magazine, Michael Ford
reported that the 05-07 UT 7415 kHz broadcast had been replaced by 07-08
UT on 15480 kHz Woofferton. I don't know about that emission, but it's
certainly still on 7415 kHz earlier.

re China Radio International direct channels off.
Yesterday report to Austrian newsgroup A-DX:

some high-power 500 kW units at both Kashgar and Urumqi were off
yesterday, but not all, they are much flexible in RTC facilities.

Similar observed today in 15-16 UT time slot,
when listened to the registered channels.

Maybe the Chinese maintain there high-power sites on some extended
4-6 weeks duration, before the strong winter in western China start.

see their CRI RTC A-15 afternoon registrations of 500 kW units at
Kashgar and Urumqi:

another recording from the top of the hour, but the station ended up
getting buried by ham QRM.

ISRAEL   As the Israel Broadcasting Authority approaches its end next
March, staffers at Israel Radio have been losing a war of attrition. A
station that once employed more than 20 professionals is now down to four,
and they are hurting.

"We get the feeling that from the prime minister down, no one wants us
around," says veteran broadcaster David Ze'ev.

It has not always been this way.

When public radio was first launched in pre-state Israel in 1936, the
broadcasts were in English, Hebrew and Arabic.

Established by the British Mandate authorities and modeled on the BBC, the
Palestine Broadcasting Service eventually evolved into the Voice of
Israel.

The first English-language broadcaster was Ruth Belkind, who in later
years as Ruth Connell Robertson was a highly respected copy editor at The
Jerusalem Post.

Belkind was originally from England, and many of the broadcasters who
followed her were also British expatriates. But there were also Americans,
South Africans, Canadians and Australians.

New immigrants from English-speaking countries, plus those from other
countries whose English was better than their Hebrew, and of course
foreign diplomats stationed in Israel, relied heavily on Voice of Israel
English language broadcasts to know what was going on in the country, and
perhaps even more people were listening to English language broadcasts
from Israel on short wave radio.

One of the listeners who was in Israel to study at a yeshiva in Jerusalem
was Ze'ev, who together with fellow students from the United States used
to listen to the radio in the dorm.

He knew even then that he wanted a career in journalism, and thought how
wonderful it could be if he could tell people about Israel from Israel. He
wasn't interested in propaganda. He wanted to report on news as it was
happening and to interview people who were in the news.

Some 30-plus years ago, the wish came true. Ze'ev came on aliya, there was
a vacant slot at the radio, and he was one of those fortunate immigrants
who was literally living the dream. At that time in 1981, there were two
departments - news and features and more than 20 people worked in them.

Over the years short wave radio broadcasts were eliminated, as was the
features department. The staff load was reduced to only four people, who
write, edit and anchor news broadcasts in addition to trying to keep on
top of ongoing developments and interviewing the relevant people.

The department is headed by Naomi Segal and the two other journalists,
Mark Weiss and Neal Sandler, are veterans like Ze'ev.

There was a fifth member, Jacqui Beecham. But she left on September 30
along with a couple of hundred other employees of the Israel Broadcasting
Authority, who had been offered a relatively attractive package to leave
voluntarily rather than wait to be dismissed. A sixth member of the team,
Idel Ross, left several months previously.

Whenever someone leaves they are not replaced, says Ze'ev, and those who
are still working have to shoulder an additional burden of responsibility.

No full-time person has been hired by the department since the early
1990s, he asserts.

The worst part is that no one in the higher echelons of the IBA respects
what the English team is doing. "At this point, we're led to believe that
we're parasites," says Ze'ev.

"We are hanging by a thread" he declares, explaining that three out of the
four do not live in Jerusalem. They all work two shifts, both early
morning and late night. If they are doing late night and then early
morning, it doesn't pay to go home, but the IBA does not provide them with
a hotel room. They either sleep in the studio or stay with friends.

There are days that he doesn't even know why he is doing what he is doing
in an environment in which he and his colleagues are so underappreciated.

Among his interviewers over the past week were MK Ahmad Tibi, talking
about the Temple Mount, Yigal Henkin, the brother of Eitam Henkin who
together with his wife, Naama, was murdered by terrorists, and settler
leaders who are camped around the corner from the Prime Minister's
Residence.

Ze'ev tries to the best of his ability to be up to date and to present
both sides of any story.

It's not always easy when you have a deadline, limited air time, and you
have to write news and anchor as well.

The IBA has never made any effort to publicize the English News, so Ze'ev
and his colleagues have no idea whether anyone is listening or not, or
even whether people are aware of the existence of the English-language
news service.

None of the four has been told whether there will be broadcasts in English
in the yet-to-be-established successor to the IBA, which is in the process
of liquidation. This is causing all four to give serious thought to their
best financial options. Should they stay in the hope that they will be
part of the new entity or should they leave now with whatever financial
package is being offered? Ze'ev is angry over the misreporting in the
print media over how much money IBA employees are allegedly earning.

He concedes that there may be a few people on very high salaries, but
overall salaries are barely above the basic wage and pensions. The extras
that crept into salaries over the years are not calculated into the
pension, and were introduced as compensation for the low salaries,
according to Ze'ev.

Despite the nightmare conditions under which he works, Ze'ev loves radio
as a communications medium, and would be prepared to last out the duration
if he were shown a concrete plan for English news and feature radio
broadcasts in the new public broadcasting entity and was given a concrete
guarantee of future employment.

"We're still working as if nothing is happening around us. It's been an
emotional hell!" says Ze'ev. "We are a public radio service, not
government radio, and we get the feeling that from the prime minister
down, no one wants us around. We feel like a sinking ship trying to do our
job and the government doesn't care. I don't want the government to
intervene, but I don't want them to destroy us."

Farewell Barry Williams(78)  ZL1ACZ, NZ DXer of 1951 to 2015.

With considerable sadness we record the passing of another senior member
of the DX League in New Zealand. Former National President and Life Member
Barry died in Auckland on 1 October 2015.

He was very keen on radio history and produced numerous competently
written articles, many of which grace the pages at  <radiodx.com>

NEW ZEALAND   Rusting Titahi Bay radio masts to be demolished after being
deemed safety risks.

The Titahi Bay radio mast - the second tallest structure in New Zealand.
ROSS GIBLIN / FAIRFAX NZ

New Zealand's second-tallest structure behind the Sky Tower is rusting and
must be demolished as a safety hazard.

The 220-metre Radio New Zealand transmission mast at Titahi Bay, Porirua,
is set for demolition, along with its 50m neighbour, after engineers
discovered significant corrosion. A third tower would remain.

RNZ chief executive Paul Thompson said on Wednesday that the 50m tower was
identified as the most at-risk in a report delivered on Monday.

"They said 'Get it down immediately', so we fenced it off today ... no-one
will be able to go into the hazard zone, we'll get that down in the next
week or two."

Engineers recommended the 220m tower be demolished by next March, but RNZ
would instead look to bring it down this year.

"It's a really tough environment for metal structures, but you reach a
point where the advice is these things need to come down."

He said while the 50m mast was now fenced off, the bigger tower was not.
"It would take a lot of bad luck, including a catastrophic storm, to
create a problem there."

If it were to topple, it wouldn't fall "like a tree in the forest" rather
it would fall in on itself.

"Because it's partially a public area, and there are houses nearby, we
just want to get it down as soon as possible."

The 220m mast was opened in 1937 by prime minister Michael Joseph Savage,
allowing nationwide radio broadcasting for the first time.

It was not until Auckland's 328m Sky Tower was completed in 1996 that the
mast lost its title as tallest structure in New Zealand.

Titahi Bay Golf Club manager Tom Campbell said golfers would just have to
play around the safety fence cutting into three fairways: the seventh,
eighth and ninth holes.

"This is a quiet period of the year, so it won't matter that much."

He said RNZ contacted the club on Tuesday about the report, then fenced
off the danger area.

He said the 50m tower, which was on golf course land, was an obstacle and
was something players could do without anyway. "Our balls won't bounce off
it any more."

Thompson said the masts broadcast on the AM frequency, and all current
services could be run through the remaining tower.

He said RNZ might have to replace one of the masts eventually, but AM
broadcasting was not as important as it used to be.

A meeting open to the community would be held on Tuesday at the Titahi Bay
Golf Club from 7pm, he said.

ROMANIA   RADIO TIMISOARA A POWERFUL "MEDIUM" THAT SPEAKS TEN LANGUAGES
by Antonello Napolitano.

[NOTE: proper spelling of Timisoara is with a [,] sedilla under the S,
which makes it an sh- sound, as you will see in any good atlas. While this
is difficult to achieve in many fonts, such as this, in English one should
otherwise respell it Timishoara, which I have done here by find-and-
replace 24 times below; also in a couple other words.

No one else seems to care about preserving Romanian fonetix such as
Tziganeshti instead of Tiganesti. Altho displaying some accents over
vowels, WRTH does not do it either, e.g. "Iasi" instead of Iashi. This
intervention is not meant at all to criticise Antonello for a fine first-
person article   Glenn Hauser, dxld Sept 30]

During the first week of September I visited the city of Timishoara (in
the west part of Romania), the cradle of 1989 anticommunist revolution and
today candidate for the European capital of Culture 2021. I took that
occasion to stop by at Radio Timishoara. I was greeted by its director Mr.
Mihai Anghel, a true gentleman who speaks five languages. Although his
Italian was not fluent, due to the presence of my wife who doesn't
understand any foreign language, he insisted that we speak my mother
tongue rather than English.

Two interesting facts emerged: unlike, for example in France where all AM
frequencies will be shut down at the end of September, Radio Timishoara
still relies on its medium wave outlet and that broadcasts are made in ten
different languages, including Italian!

As is well known, the number of broadcasters which have ceased
transmissions on medium waves has increased significantly over the last
years. This led most to assume that medium wave band has no future. But in
some parts of Europe there are some who still rely on AM to reach their
listeners.

"The frequency of 630 kHz is important to us because it guarantees a large
audience" says Mihai Anghel, manager of Radio Timishoara, one of the nine
regional stations of country's public broadcasting organization, Radio
Romania.

The station studios are located in Timishoara and housed in a three-
storey building which, prior to 1989 Romanian revolution, was used as a
guest house for students of adjacent Communist Party's school. In the same
building is housed TVR Timishoara which however is a separate
organization. There is also an additional studio in the city of Arad.
Radio Timishoara is primarily funded through public television license
fees as well as advertising. All of studios, except for one which dates
back to 1990, are digitalized.

Timishoara, capital city of Timi? [sic, some accented letter lost in
copying] County, and the main social, economic and cultural centre in
western Romania, is considered the informal capital city of the historical
region of Banat which is currently divided among three countries: Romania,
Serbia and Hungary.

The Banat is populated by ethnic Romanians, Serbs, Hungarians, Romani,
Germans, Ukrainians, Slovaks, Bulgarians, Czechs, Croats, Jews and other
ethnicities. That explains why a regional station like Radio Timishoara
broadcasts in ten languages (only two less than Radio Romania
International!): Romanian, Serbian, Hungarian, German, Romi (the language
spoken by Romani people or Gypsies), Czech, Slovak, Ukrainian, Bulgarian
and, what a surprise, Italian, a language which, historically, has never
been spoken in the Banat region.

Asked why they broadcast in Italian, Mr. Mihail replies: "We have many
Italian friends. The Italian community is very large. About 18000 Italians
are here for work reasons".

It should be mentioned that there is a large presence of Italian investors
in Romania, but most of them are found in the west part of the country and
especially in Timishoara which in 2007 counted 420 Italian companies
registered with a capital of more than 2 million Euro.

Called "Spazio Italia", the Italian programme of Radio Timishoara can be
heard on the first Monday of each month from 19.00 to 20.00 (local time)
on the VHF-FM frequency of 105.90 MHz or from streaming audio on their
website http://www.radioTimishoara.ro

It consists of current affairs, art, culture, recipes and of course
Italian songs. The first edition of "Spazio Italia" was aired in June
2007. "Carlo Marchegiano, an Italian investor living in Timishoara, and
his wife Margherita Lenzini, were the initiators of the programme", says
Mr. Mihai Anghel. "There are three or four more Italians involved as well
as a colleague of Radio Timishoara who assembles the transmission".

A typical broadcast day includes news, current affairs, culture, sport and
different kinds of music, including pop and rock. The station also plays
from 08.00 to 09.00, on 630 kHz only, a show of Romania's folk music
accompanied by listener's dedications.

Daily programmes are in Romanian, German (13.00-14.00 only on MW),
Hungarian (14.00-15.00 only on MW) and Serbian (15.00-16.00 only on MW).
Similar to Italian, broadcasts in the remaining six foreign languages are
not transmitted daily.

Radio Timishoara in addition to its 630 kHz medium wave frequency has
three FM transmitters at Timishoara (105.90 MHz), Arad (102.90 MHz) and on
Mount Coseviza (103.60 MHz). According to Mr. Anghel, the same programmes
are carried on both FM and AM bands in the following time blocks: 00.00 to
08.00, 11.00 to 13.00 and 16.00 to 18.00.

Not all FM transmitters broadcast the same content simultaneously. For
example, from 19.00 to 22.00, on 102.90 MHz and 103.60 MHz, there is a
separate programme which is produced in the studio located in Arad. In the
same time block, a repeat of German (19.00-20.00), Hungarian (20.00-21.00)
and Serbian (21.00-22.00) morning broadcasts is aired over the 105.90 MHz
FM transmitter located in Timishoara.

According to Mr. Mihai Anghel, a 400 kW transmitter located at Ortishoara,
about 25 km from Timishoara, is used for broadcasting on 630 kHz. The
station has been heard in most parts of Europe, including Finland. "We
received many reception reports from listeners who are amateur radio
enthusiasts", says Mihai Angel. Do you verify reception reports? "Yes, our
chief engineer acknowledges reception reports by E- mail but in the past
we used to reply by snail-mail".

Sport is very important for listeners of Radio Timishoara. The manager of
Radio Timishoara explains that in the city there are two football teams:
ACS Poli, which plays in the first division and, despite it plays in Liga
III (the third level of the Romanian football league system), the most
loved Politehnica Timi?oara [sic   did this achieve a sedilla
originally?]. "Videos of this team (Politehnica) on our website -
comments Mr. Mihai Anghel - are among the most viewed by its Romanian fans
living abroad".

Among the other activities of Radio Timishoara are sponsorship of
traditional folk music festivals and production of CDs containing
traditional, folk, fanfare and classical music performed not only by
school or amateur orchestras, choirs or brass bands but also by well-
known composers like Gyoergy Kurtag. His composition "Colinda Balada" was
released on CD by Radio Timishoara and was first performed in 2009
Romania. Kurtag, who is Hungarian, wrote it for his birthplace, Lugos and
it was also a tribute to the Romanian language he learnt when he was
young.

The day of my visit to the station coincided with the "Iosif-Sivu shi
Cosmin Golban" International Folk Festival's final night which was
presented by Daniela Bacila, a nice music editor of Radio Timishoara. Mr.
Mihai Anghel was also there to deliver a metal plaque to the winner of a
400 RON (approx 90.00 Euro) Radio Timishoara prize.

Speaking of future plans Mihai Anghel says: "We hope to have more
frequencies for covering our region. Our broadcasts attract lots of
listeners, 250,000 per day, but there is a big difference between AM and
FM which is not able to cover all of our region. With the introduction of
DRM, that difference will be bigger as listeners don't have receivers able
to pick up digital broadcasts. For that reason AM remains fundamental for
us"

On the average day, it's barely above the noise floor, but you can hear
the African music. Well, the last few days, it's been at pretty listenable

poor at only S8 in 'long' propagation beyond mere Metairie. Since the NRD-

some more precise frequencies, but caution the final digit may still be
approximate. How can I be more accurate with my little old receiver than a

USA   VOA Delano Transmitter Readied for Public Display
Ver en <www.radioworld.com>
Photos by James E. O'Neal

If you've been following the saga of the Voice of America's Delano,
Calif., transmitter plant since its closure in the fall of 2007, you know
that one of the big Collins Radio machines there - a 1960s-vintage 821A-
1 250,000-watt shortwave transmitter - was rescued through the combined
efforts of the Antique Wireless Association and the Collins Collectors
Association.

The Collins 821A-1 250,000-watt transmitter is shown after its reassembly
at the AWA Museum in Bloomfield.

The Antique Wireless Association decided to recreate the VOA's Delano
transmitter plant's control room. When the facility was active, operators
could keep tabs on the station's Collins and ASEA Brown Boveri quarter-
megawatt transmitters.

The organizations pooled their resources to create the Collins Radio
Heritage Group and funded the removal and shipping of 38,000 pounds of
heavy-metal transmitter some 2,700 miles to the small New York town of
Bloomfield.

During my visit in 2014, the Collins 821A-1 had arrived, but was still in
relatively small pieces occupying more than 100 packing boxes and pallets.
(The accumulation of big rig components was sometimes referred to as "the
world's largest Erector set" or "the Heathkit from hell" by those involved
in its relocation.)

Making things all the more challenging was a mandate attached to donated
transmitter by the General Services Administration, manager of the Delano
site after it was vacated by the VOA, that required the transmitter to be
reassembled and on display within 12 months of its acquisition.

TOGETHER AGAIN
I'm pleased to report that the 821A-1 transmitter - as well as the VOA's
Delano transmitting station control room where the facility's aggregation
of high-power quarter-megawatt rigs were monitored and controlled - are
both back together now, looking very much as they did in their California
location.

Everything was made ready in time for a viewing at this year's annual AWA
conference in mid-August, though according to the AWA's deputy director,
Bob Hobday, the official opening is still a couple of months away.

"We were rushing quite hard to have the transmitter available for the
conference members," said Hobday. "We still have to put up some displays
and walls around it. This needs to be done before we can open it to the
general public as part of the museum.

"Hobday said in late September, "Our hope is to have the grand opening in
early November. The construction is well underway. "He said that visitors
arriving at the museum prior to official opening would still be allowed to
view the new exhibit.

The Delano "big rig" now shares space in the AWA's new museum facility
with a range of yesteryear's communications equipment.

YOUR SUPPORT IS NEEDED.
Hobday stated that, while costs associated with relocating the VOA gear
- some $20,000 - had been covered by donations and other funding,
financial assistance is still needed."The fundraising effort is still
ongoing," said Hobday. "We've paid for the expenses [associated with the
move and reassembly]. However, to put the transmitter in a museum setting
we're incurring some additional expenses. If anyone wants to get in on the
support of the project, we sure would appreciate their help.

"Additional information about the VOA transmitter/control room project and
how readers can support it may be found at
<antiquewireless.org>

The AWA Museum was established more than 60 years ago, and in 2013 moved
from its previous home a few miles west of here to the present 10,000-
square-foot facility in Bloomfield, N.Y. In addition to the VOA
transmitter, the collection also includes early spark transmitters,
amateur radio gear, a wide range of consumer radio and television
receivers, military electronics and more. The AWA has some 1,800 members
worldwide.

USA/AFGHANISTAN  [non] VOA AFGHANISTAN SERVICE CELEBRATES 35 YEARS ON AIR

This week, Voice of America marks 35 years of broadcasts to Afghanistan,
with special tributes and programming dedicated to the history of the
service.

The Afghanistan service began broadcasting just months after the Soviet
invasion of the country in 1980, with a daily 15-minute Dari language
radio program. Two years later, the service launched a 30- minute Pashto
language radio broadcast into the region. Despite Soviet efforts to jam
VOA broadcasts, millions of Afghans tuned into the Voice of America for
the latest news and information. Following the attacks on September 11,
2001, VOA increased broadcasts into the region to a 24 hour stream and in
2006, launched a daily television newscast, known as Ashna TV.

A segment dedicated to the service's broadcasting history aired on AshnaTV
and included reactions from officials and citizens in Afghanistan and in
the U.S. on the impact of VOA's broadcasts over the years. Special guests
were live on set, including a former broadcaster of the service, who is
now the Afghan Minister of Culture.

"We're extremely proud of what we're celebrating: 35 years of accurate,
objective and comprehensive broadcasts to Afghanistan. We're grateful to
the millions of Afghans who have chosen VOA as their No. 1 source of news
and information and are committed to serving them in the years to come"
says VOA Afghanistan Service Chief Masood Farivar.

In addition to news from Afghanistan and the region, VOA's Ashna
programming reports on U.S. and international developments, current
affairs, U.S. policies, health, science, entertainment, sports, and
women's rights. In 2014, the service extensively covered Afghanistan's
historic elections and newly elected Afghan leaders' visit to Washington.
The service has also been known to provide high profile interviews, such
as an exclusive with former President Hamid Karzai, which was shared with
and aired by major media outlets in Afghanistan.

In a special congratulatory message to the service, Mohammad Ashraf Ghani,
President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, said "As an active media
outlet, VOA's Afghan Service continues to contribute to the culture of
democracy, human dignity, and pluralism. VOA Radio Ashna, through its
programming, reporting, news, and interviews, helps Afghanistan by
spreading the voices of Afghans for peace, justice, freedom and human
rights. Congratulations on the 35th anniversary, and wishing further
success to its colleagues."

VOA reaches nearly 40% of Afghanistan's adult population weekly on radio,
television and multiple digital platforms, including two web sites, five
Facebook pages and three twitter accounts. The service's Ashna TV program
airs on the affiliate station, RTA, Afghanistan's state broadcaster with
the country's largest television coverage. Radio Ashna broadcasts eight
hours of daily programming on AM, FM, and shortwave, and just recently,
RTA agreed to air two daily news bulletins in Dari and Pashto.

With its popular hosts and reporters in Afghanistan and in the US, VOA is
one of the leading sources of daily news and information for the country's
population of nearly 30 million, as well as a large Afghan diaspora around
the world.

New Klingenfuss products for 2016:
Continuous high solar activity provides good HF conditions!

Dear friends,

we're now working on our new products

- 2016 Shortwave Frequency Guide
- 2016 Super Frequency List on CD
- 2016 Frequency Database for the Perseus LF-HF Software-Defined Receiver
- Supplement January 2016 to the 2015/2016 Guide to Utility Radio Stations

to be published on 10 December 2015.

Full-resolution title page graphics can be found at
<www.klingenfuss.org/r_2016.jpg>  and  <www.klingenfuss.org/r_2016.pdf>
<www.klingenfuss.org/s_2016.gif>  and  <www.klingenfuss.org/s_2016.pdf>

If you are able to supply additional new frequencies and stations,
your cooperation would be highly appreciated.
Please let us have your data by 20 October 2015.

Our article "Shortwave Reception via Web-SDR", as far as HF utility
radio stations are concerned, is available at

<www.klingenfuss.org/websdr.pdf>

This fascinating technique with new sample screenshots of professional
digital data stations worldwide will be integrated in the new 2016
editions of our products.

The printed Supplement, with 600+ new frequencies and stations
monitored throughout 2015, will be attached free to all copies of the
2015/2016 Guide to Utility Radio Stations sold after 1 January 2016.

Those customers that did acquire the 2015/2016 Guide to Utility Radio
Stations before that date may download the pertinent .PDF file free
from our website, after 1 January 2016.

The continuously updated product Digital Data Decoder Screenshots on
USB Stick is highly successful and now covers more than 10,500
(ten thousand five hundred!) screenshots from 1997 to today.
Feed your PC or Tablet with this data, and the "slide show" will keep
you busy for a few days - or weeks!

After a relatively "weak" solar cycle maximum with a hefty
210+ sunspots in May 2015, we still have sunspot numbers around 80,
with some more considerable peaks expected such as - only recently!
- 154 on 27 September 2015. HF propagation conditions and long-distance
communication continue to be pretty good. New HF e-mail services,
stations, networks and frequencies continue to emerge on a regular
basis. HF e-mail booms and service providers continue to expand. No
other publisher considers this revolutionary development accordingly.
