ANGUILLA   6090, on July 9 at 0040 UT, incredibly, decent modulation has
finally been restored at Caribbean Beacon after several months of extreme
distortion, PMS at S=9+35dB, an echo apart from // 5935 kHz WWCR. Downside
now is that it splatters more out to 6080-6100 kHz! Plus reaudiblizing the
boring content of The so-called University Network.

11775, July 9 at 1302 UT check, corresponding day frequency is also
finally back to normal, with DGS.

11775, July 10 at 2135 UT, Caribbean Beacon is AWOL, a few days after
finally fixing the modulation. Not audible on 6090 kHz either which
normally starts at 2200 UT. 11775 kHz still off at 1550 UT check July 11.

Anguilla 11775 kHz at 1830 UT on July 14 is empty channel in USA central
Florida and Detroit-MI, except CRI German program on air, heard in Europe.

ANGUILLA/NIGERIA-non   6090, July 14 at 0542 UT check, CB is off again,
but none of the other 6090s audible now. Are Ethiopia, Nigeria active?
Presumably not Brasil any more.

AUSTRIA   ORS Moosbrunn video.
Hi All, An interesting video showing a visit to the ORS Moosbrunn
transmitting site has been posted to YouTube by Max Berger, and although
the language is in German, it's still well worth a watch even for non-
German speakers, as it shows some great shots of the antennas,
transmitters and control room:

A recent radio fan visit at Moosbrunn. The walk through the
transmitter room that starts at 12:30 should be discussed in detail:

First come the two 100 kW Thomcast (as the company was called back
then) transmitters installed in 2000, also shown before with opening
the PA tube cabinet etc. Then to the left the 10 kW Continental
transmitter used until 1984 at ORS Innsbruck Aldrans Tyrol on 6000 kHz "to
serve deep valleys" as ORF put it back then, unable to just say that this
was for Southern Tyrol.

Then to the right the only remaining one of the four 100 kW Telefunken
transmitters from the 60s, the original equipment. Then behind the
gateway (into a building extension it seems) the two 500 kW Telefunken
transmitters from the 80s, used for all transmissions with 300 kW,
thus most of the remaining output, including the prominently shown BBC
in French.

BOLIVIA   6025 unID at 0023-0047 UT on 5 Dec. Waiting at the beach for the
lighting of our town Christmas tree, found an Spanish yakker just breaking

BULGARIA   [to ERITREA]   Radio Erena: a beacon of hope for Eritrea.

Long article published today on Radio Erena. Article includes "Making sure
it can be picked up in Eritrea, however, remains a constant struggle. In
2012, the government managed to block it - seemingly unbothered by the
fact that in doing so, it also blocked its own television channel (both
broadcast on one satellite frequency).

It has also successfully jammed it on shortwave, and on at least one
occasion has hacked into the Radio Erena website, destroying it
completely. "It's a nonstop challenge," he says. "We're constantly
fighting them, and it's getting harder and harder because they are now
employing new experts from China and Indonesia."

CANADA   Re: CKZN: Still Off the Air and Still Wanting Comments

Reply from Larry Wartman:
"Thanks for your comments on the CKZN shortwave service. CBC is currently
undertaking an evaluation of the sustainability of this shortwave service
and your comments will certainly be considered in the results."

He copied Victoria King
<victoria.king -at- cbc.ca>
on the message. This is what she says about herself on her LinkedIn page:
"As operations manager for the CBC in Newfoundland and Labrador, I look
after the technical operations and all CBC properties in the province.
Problem solving, budget planning, project management, industrial relations
are key skills for this position."

CHINA   [TIBET region]  PBS Xizang, on July 16, *back on the air again*
after being silent for several months. Heard 4920 kHz in Tibetan, causing
severe QRM for AIR Chennai at 1209 UT; also heard // 6200 kHz, at the same
time, which was in the clear before the sign on of Voice of Jinling
(China), which happens about *1230 UT, but fortunately VOJ is much
stronger than Tibet, so very light Tibet QRM after 1230 UT.

Maybe the others are also back today?

NETHERLANDS   Groot Nieuws Radio, AM 1008 kHz.
Mediumwave Flevoland - The Netherlands goes off-air.

The last powerful AM outlet 1008 kHz in The Netherlands will leave the
airways as from September the first this summer. The actual user, the
Christian broadcaster Groot Nieuws Radio, has lost in a adjudication to
keep the Flevoland transmitter in operation. Groot Nieuws Radio asked the
Dutch organisation Autoriteit Consument en Markt (ACM) - Authority For
Consumer And Marketing, to do a decision. Groot Nieuws Radio has a hiring
contract until September 2017. The broadcasting organisation says in a
statement to be disappointed in the decision of the ACM. Also AM should be
needed to reach the whole of the Netherlands, instead of distribution via
DAB+, internet, interactive television and the analog kabelnetworks,
according to the Christian broadcaster.

NOVEC, the owner and exploration company of the transmittersite near
Zeewolde - Flevoland, wants to dismantle the 207 m. high broadcasting
masts in favor of an electrical windmill power project. Also the company
says that maintenance of the masts is needed. After that an exploration
will be to expensive or will not have an effectiveness.

The transmitters site Flevoland is in use since 1980. It was the main
transmitter site of the Netherlands, consisting two transmitters with a
maximum output from 600 kW, to distribute the first two programs of the
Dutch public radio. Earlier two programs of the Dutch public radio.
Earlier called Hilversum 1 and 2, later Radio 1 and 2. In 1985 Radio 2 was
replaced by Radio 5. Frequencies are 1008 and 747 kHz. The last one was
switched off definitely September the first 2015.

Commercial users were hiring airtime on the 1008 kHz since 2004. Groot
Nieuws Radio is allowed to use 1008 until 2020. They will probably have to
look for a different possibility. But at last, a nationwide coverage of a
AM broadcasting location in The Netherlands will be ending at the end of
August this year.

reception in LSB to get away from moderate QRM from 7300 kHz. Several

1100 UT IS (Jew's harp - khomus) and 4+1 time pips.

At *1101 UT, CRI (7345 kHz) signed on and blocked the weak R. Sakha

Seems to be mainly aimed at school children, but it could be a chance to
learn more about their work.

I've never visited the station, but have driven past it many times over
the past decades. I've noticed big changes over the years, with new
buildings, satellite dishes, etc added to what looked in the 1980s like
a very modest-sized operation.

Now apparently they use drones - presumably carrying receivers.

USA   At 0100 UT I find that 5085 kHz, WTWW-2 has just come on, with rock
music and ham ad, 0102 UT opening 'Theater Organ from the Ozarx'.
Strangely: on the PL-880 this has an annoying big hum, but not so much on
the NRD-545. The Tecsun is on battery only of course, so I walk around the
house and even outside to find no change in hum level, so not picking up
some local device. {Nor do I get any such hum on other bigsigs.}

I conclude the hum is really being transmitted, but the NRD filters it
down and/or has less bass frequency response, especially to headphones or
external speaker, than the hi-fi speaker of the PL-880, which in this case
is a disadvantage. Hard for me to judge the pitch but maybe 120 Hz
2 x 60 Hz AC.
