General Pacheco pictures from Argentina. Bilder aus Argentinien.

Der argentinische Auslandsdienst hat eine tolle Webseite mit
hochaufgeloesten Bildern seiner Kurzwellensender veroeffentlicht.
Die Sendeanlage befindet sich in der Ortschaft General Pacheco in der
Provinz Buenos Aires und kann theoretisch mit bis zu 100 Kilowatt
betrieben werden, wird aber aufgrund ihres Alters nur mit verminderter
Sendeleistung eingesetzt.

Danke an Horacio Nigro Geolkiewsky-URG  CX3BZ fuer den Hinweis.

When checked the 11600-11800 kHz SW range, nothing of former Radio Belarus
11730 kHz spurious signals could be monitored anymore.

Then the protest against the strong SPURIOUS interference in the range
11700 and 11760 kHz of fundamental 17730 kHz bcast, has yet demonstrated
effectivness. The German FCC - FNA Bundesnetzagentur - Federal Network
Agency Berlin - protested to Broadcasting Service Dept. State Supervisory
Department for Telecomm. in Minsk Belarus recently in January. wb.

BOLIVIA   Ian Wells, Mosgiel has been helping a broadcast staffer
understand the hobby.

"I received an interesting response from Mary Hurst of Radio Mosoj Chaski
<mosojchaski -at- live.com>
which I will count as a verification for 3310 kHz after emailing a number
of follow-ups, and finally submitting my report on their 'contact us' page
on the website
<www.mosojchaski.com>

She admitted to not really knowing what a reception report was, and having
no idea of what a QSL card was all about or why anybody might want a
verification, but her email did indicate that my report provided details
that sounded 'accurate of our programming'. I replied, thanking her for
taking the time to respond and providing some background about the hobby -
hopefully reports they receive in future will get a better form of
verification."
(I wonder where she's located? It almost sounds like someone responding
from off-site.)

very light CNR1 QRM. Now is an excellent time to hear RRI without the
usually strong BB QRM.

NEW ZEALAND   The final historic Radio New Zealand transmission mast has
been removed from the Titahi Bay skyline near Wellington. The 220 metre
structure above Owhiti Street, north of Porirua, was demolished on Tuesday
16 February following months of preparation.

Though the weather was not ideal, Martin Wilson, managing director of
Abseil Access, the company that removed the mast, said the mast came down
as planned. "It was a big relief to have the job complete, with six months
of planning coming down to one button," Wilson said. "Nothing went wrong,
that's the main thing. The mast fell slowly north, although it didn't
quite land hit the target I marked for fun," he said.

The tower, along with another 50 metre mast demolished late last year,
transmitted five AM radio stations, including RNZ National and Newstalk
ZB. Built in 1937, it was New Zealand's tallest structure until Auckland's
Sky Tower was opened in the mid-1990s. It was opened by Prime Minister
Michael Joseph Savage and allowed nationwide radio broadcasting for the
first time. A 10-year-old 137 metre mast would now transmit all the radio
frequencies.

RNZ's Matthew Finn said it was definitely an end of an era but it was
always going to happen. "We had to establish future plans and this was one
of them," he said. Finn said the remaining mast also had an amount of rust
and would have to be replaced in the future. As the towers were quite an
iconic landmark, he said there could be a chance another mast would be
built on the same site as the 220-metre mast - just not quite as tall.

Last year, Justine Chalmers, a Dimock St resident, who had lived in the
same house below the mast for 34 years, said she had mixed feelings about
the demolitions. "You get used to them being there," she said. "As kids we
would get fluoro tubes and go up close to them and the tubes would light
up in your hands. It was pretty cool." Chalmers said she would miss them,
but it was about time they came down.
(The Dominion Post via Paul Rawdon in DX Dialog,
March NZ DX Times, direct and via dxld)

I've done that fluorescent tube trick too! The following photos of the
initial stages of the dismantling of the 567 AM antenna at Titahi Bay on
11 December were taken by my cousin Garry Clark, watching the activity
from Plimmerton.

NIGERIA   Having been unheard for several months, Voice of Nigeria - Lagos
has made a surprise reappearance on SW during February using 15120, 11770,
and 9690 kHz. Broadcasts from Voice of Nigeria - Abuja have continued on
SW but are not so easily heard in Europe.

Transmissions from Lagos have been very intermittent, some days on, some
days off, and sometimes on different frequencies, but it has been possible
to work out an approximate schedule for the two services as follows:

Abuja 0600-0700  7255 Hausa ( // 9690 currently unheard)
Abuja 0700-0730  7255 French
Abuja 0730-0800  7255 Fulfulde
Abuja 0800-0900  7255 English

Lagos 0900-1400  9690 English (alt 15120)
Lagos 1400-1530 15120 English (alt  9690)
Lagos 1530-1600 15120 French  (alt  9690)
Lagos 1600-1630  9690 Swahili
Lagos 1630-1700  9690 Yoruba  (alt 11770)
Lagos 1730-1800 11770 Arabic

Abuja 1800-1930  7255 + 15120-DRM English
                 (ex/alt. 9690, DRM transmission irregular)
Abuja 1930-2000  7255 Fulfulde
Abuja 2000-2100  7255 Hausa

It seems that Abuja operates the early morning and evening broadcasts,
with Lagos filling the gap in the daytime. The presenters on the two
English services are different and they always ID distinctly as "Voice of
Nigeria, Lagos" or "Voice of Nigeria, Abuja".

RUSSIA   Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on the calculation
of time, according to which in a number of regions of Russia will change
the time zone and time to translate them for an hour in advance.

The clock will be set forward one hour in the Ulyanovsk region, in the
Altai Territory, in the Altai Republic and in the Sakhalin region in the
framework of the Federal Law "On Amendments to Article 5 of the Federal
Law. On the Calculation of Time". It is reported by the press service of
the Russian president.

"Federal law provides for change of time zone of the Ulyanovsk region with
the 2nd (Moscow time, the UTC+3hrs) in the third (Moscow time plus 1:00,
the UTC+4hrs)."

Federal law provides for changing time zones of the Altai Republic with
the 5th (Moscow time plus 3 hours, the UTC+6hrs) to the 6th time zone
(Moscow time plus 4 hours, the UTC+7hrs).

Federal law provides for change of time zone of the Altai Territory from
the 5th (Moscow time plus 3 hours, the UTC+6hrs) to the 6th time zone
(4 Moscow time plus 4 hours, the UTC+7hrs).

Federal law amends the Federal Law "On the Calculation of Time", according
to which the entire territory of the Sakhalin Oblast will be the 10th time
zone (Moscow time plus 8 hours, the UTC+11hrs)."

The document was published on the official website of legal information on
Wednesday, March 9. Changes in the calculation of the time in these
regions of Russia will take effect March 27, 2016 at 02:00 Moscow time.

Actions on transfer time calculation for an hour ahead and install a
permanent summer time are called back historically in these regions
timezones.
