Re: Africa - Asia - Pacific DX log (13) Ron Howard - Oct 30, 2017 03:36 UTC No.2687
ANGOLA. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola, 0228-0405+, Oct 29.
Audio above threshold level, but heavy QRN (static). Highlights:

0228-0300: Pop songs.
0300-0302: Time pips; brief news headlines; several SAs.
0304-0400: Religious program; several segments of preaching,
but mostly non-stop religious songs. This on a Sunday.
0400: Time pips; news with several breaks for SAs.

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, on Oct 29. As usual the "Waltzing
Matilda" (WM) modulation was stronger than the rest of the broadcast.
WM noted at 1130, 1230, 1259, 1305 & 1359. At 1300 time pips; YL
with news, with several sound bites, but unreadable; break during the
news to play WM. At times was close to being readable, but needs
somewhat better propagation for that.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, Oct 29. Better than usual
due to no noticeable QRM from RRI Palangkaraya (just a carrier heard
after NBC went off); NBC cut off 1147*.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260) cut off at 1205*, on Oct 29, after what
sounded like religious songs (on a Sunday).

CHINA. 7260, CRI, in Japanese. Oct 29, with the start of the B17
schedule, Radio Vanuatu is now totally blocked 1100-1257 by this
powerhouse.

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, RNGE, R. Bata, with Oct 29 anomaly.
Definite carrier heard at 0415; checking on & off till 0531. Had a very
decent carrier the whole time and quiet conditions, but no audio detected.
This is the earliest I have ever heard their presumed signal.

Helpful feedback from Manuel M駭dez: "heard R Bata at 0459 UTC with
very very weak signal, songs and comments, barely audible." [Oct 29]

KOREA NORTH[non]. Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata, on Oct 29,
found ex 6040 silent; no jamming and no Shiokaze; went looking for
them 1300+, but unable to find them. Where did they move to?

U S A. 4875-USB, Air Force MARS net, 1206+, Oct 29. This is a
Sunday only net at this time period; net managed by the usual AFF4FL
and he had good reception, while the others in the net only faintly heard.

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, on Oct 29, during a few quick checks;
found they definitely lost the audio from time to time about 0345.




Re: Voice of Indonesia in Dutch Ron Howard - Oct 30, 2017 23:42 UTC No.2688
INDONESIA. 9524.94, VOI, on Oct 30, with anomaly. 1300-1400
no English, but instead in Dutch. Thanks very much to Wolfie, who
confirmed my audio clip is in fact Dutch. Today had pre-1300 with
the usual Japanese and post-1400 was the normal Indonesian. My
audio at http://goo.gl/YHiWPf . Reception much better than usual,
but with some audio hum.

Was this a one day anomaly or is it a real change to their language
schedule? What happened to their segment in English (ex: 13-14)?
Needs more monitoring!

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (13) Ron Howard - Oct 31, 2017 00:06 UTC No.2689

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1200-1210, on Oct 30. News/sports;
getting closer to being semi-readable.

CHINA. 6155, CNR2, on Oct 30, at 1337. For many years China
Business Radio (CNR2) had sole possession of this frequency, but
no longer so. Today heard very strong QRM from UNID. Is it the
new schedule of AIR here? Needs more time spent here to ID the
UNID.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Monday, Oct 30. This
weeks adventures of "Tom" found him at London airport looking for
parking at "terminal three," so he could pick up his "Aunt Jennifer,"
who was arriving from Sydney. The Monday and Wednesday saga
continues, hi. As usual, the "Say It In English" program was very
readable (1218-1231).

TIBET[non]. 6010, CNR-11 (Tibetan Service), via Baoji-Sifangshan,
1420, Oct 30. In Tibetan and // 7350, which was considerably stronger.
It was back in 2010 this service formerly carried the "Holy Tibet" show
in English. Wish they would bring it back again!


Re: Africa - Asia - Pacific DX log (13) Ron Howard - Oct 31, 2017 06:13 UTC No.2690
KOREA NORTH[non]. new 7410, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata.
On Oct 29 & 30 went looking for ex: 6040 (which was silent of both
Shiokaze and also the N. Korean jamming), at 1300+, but without any
success.

Hiroshi explains why - Shiokaze moved to 7410. This is the frequency
of the powerhouse CRI, so will be difficult to make out much, if anything,
from Shiokaze. A sad situation! They made the same mistake last year.
Hard to believe they did it again.

PHILIPPINES. new 17700, R. Pilipinas, ex:12010, at 0200, on Oct 31.
Choral anthem; time pip (about one minute late); SA; sound bites from
various past presidents; 0205 擢rom the presidential palace Manila,
Dateline Malacang,・info about the current activities of the government;
0220 "From the News Center of Radio Pilipinas. This is the PBS News":
// 15640 & 17820, with 17700 being the strongest. My audio at
http://goo.gl/6iQDoo .

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, 0301-0307, Oct 31, with reciting
from the Qur'an (good audio); 0307+ animated monologue. No
problems noted through 0310. Re-checked at 0402 to also find
good audio, with the news; better than normal reception, but heavy
QRN (static).

Interesting that Bill Bingham (RSA) found ZBC today at a time when
they were still having problems, so very much still a hit-or-miss operation
on this frequency. Thanks to Bill for his continuing monitoring!

"6015 Zanzibar, ZBC Radio, Dole. Oct 31, 2017 Tuesday. 0315-0357.
Swahili, OM talking at 0315. Mentioned 纏anzibar・at 0316. Lost audio
at about 0330, still not back as of 0357. Fair while it lasted. Jo'burg

KOREA NORTH. new 3945, Echo of Unification, ex: 5905, at
1350, Nov 2. Hearing two stations here; in past was only "RN2,
Radio Nikkei" (Japan) here; now QRMed by weaker EOU till RN2
signed off at 1401*, leaving EOU in the clear, but fairly weak signal;
in Korean; broadcasting from DPRK to ROK. The EOU website,
in Korean, at http://www.tongilvoice.com/ (seems not updated!).

Thanks very much to Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) for the timely
alert. He heard them first on Nov 1.

KOREA NORTH[non]. new 7295, via Taiwan. Thanks very much
to Ralph Perry, who at 1300+, on Oct 31, was hearing a new UNID

ANGOLA. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola, 0333-0406, Nov 3.
Nicely above threshold level audio, but again with QRN (static);
pop songs; several SAs. My audio at http://goo.gl/gPp8mZ .

ETHIOPIA. 6090, Amhara State Radio, 0250, Nov 3. Caribbean
Beacon, via Anguilla off the air. More strange happenings with the
interval signals here, as I have recently been reporting on. Today
tuned in to hear a decent level carrier; 0252 clearly the start of the
Radio Oromiya IS; at 0256 heard the start of the Amhara State
Radio IS, which was weak and mixing well underneath the Radio
Oromiya IS, which ended at 0259, leaving the Amhara State Radio
IS in the clear till 0300.

Certainly something strange is happening either at the studio or transmitter
site. See Glenn's insightful comments in DXLD 17-41. My audio of one
minute of Radio Oromiya IS in the clear and then Amhara State Radio IS
in the clear, at http://goo.gl/R6CUyX .

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, 0302-0330, Nov 3. Today noted no problem
with the audio or transmitter; usual format (reciting from the Qur'an, etc.);
better than usual reception. Jim Young was also listening at the same time
and noted reception was "extremely strong" in Southern Calif.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1141-1203*,
Nov 8. Discussion in Pidgin; pop songs; almost no RRI

BTW - NBC Madang, on 3260; noted NBC news in English
at 1204; at 1207, after the news, went straight to indigenous,
repetitive singing (not the usual pop songs); 1210* cut off;
poor.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1138+, Nov 8.
Only the VOF carrier (no audio at all), as well as the usual
North Korean jamming here.

Former VOF ex-frequencies today:

6020 - Only Vietnam.
6045 - Clear frequency.

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, on Nov 13, heard with
the strongest signal ever noted here, but unfortunately on
a day when there was very heavy OTH radar; 1133 & 1255.
Without the OTH radar, believe the news would have been
fairly readable, as the Ozy signal was that strong.

Nov 13. Nice English & Chinese SA - "S W liu(6) ling(0)

the Voice Shangri-la"; 1201*. No BBS/Bhutan here today.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. On Nov 13,
again found their programming out of sync from the normal
timing, for this one hour program that is repeated every hour;
instead of the usual bell/gong being rung slowly three times
at 1203, today was at 1210; OTH radar QRM (not N. Korea
jamming!).

5920, Voice of Freedom. On Nov 13, at 1203, almost fair,
even with the usual light North Korea jamming.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1212-1225, Nov 13.
English language lesson program "Say It In English" starts
and ends with same theme music; today Tom's Aunt Jennifer
and Kate go to the cinema to see "Monsters From Outer
Space"; Aunt Jennifer takes the wrong bus and calls Tom to
come and pick her up; the Monday and Wednesday tales
continue and are fairly readable.

minority languages service), via Dac Lac, 1241+, Nov 18.
Non-stop repetitive indigenous chanting; in vernacular.
VOV4 website (Google translation) http://goo.gl/j9p6e4 .
Reception stronger than normal.

Dac Lac province is located in the Central Highlands and
has many indigenous people there who are not ethnically
Vietnamese.

So it would seem that NBC Bougainville has for a long
time now discontinued the use of this frequency. I last
heard them here at 0642*, back on June 3, 2016. Don't
recall seeing any reported receptions of NBC after June,
2016, on 6020?

KOREA SOUTH. 5857.5-USB. For a long time
now I have checked here almost daily and always
hear HLL2 Seoul, with the weather in different
languages. Significant anomaly on Nov 22, with
what seemed to be a mix up of an audio feed?

1241-1300: Weak audio feed of OM & YL alternately
reading numbers (not the usual HLL2 Seoul weather
audio feed).

1300: In addition to the audio feed of numbers, the
start of the normal weather info given in Korean by
HLL2 Seoul, which was much stronger that the reading
of the numbers.

Checked 1308-1330 to hear only a carrier (dead air) with
no audio feed at all; normally should have had a segment
of weather (HLL2 Seoul).

Due to this unique frequency and subsequent dead air (no
audio at all), can I safely assume the numbers audio feed
was in fact transmitted via HLL2 Seoul?

Weak audio of numbers being read, at http://goo.gl/pY4JTY .

7181.52, VOBME 2 (presumed), 1421-1506, Dec 1. In vernacular
and with HOA music/singing; much stronger than 7140 (VOBME 1);
1502-1506 anomaly with the jamming transmitter only with a loud
test tone; normal jamming (white noise or DRM?) started at 1506.
Yesterday was a regular day, as jamming started right at *1502.
So the jamming on 7140 is the first to start. My audio of test tone
going into jamming at http://goo.gl/T1gRy4 .

KOREA NORTH[non]. new frequency 6085, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze,
via Yamata, ex: 7410, on Dec 1 at 1305. In Japanese; nice clear signal,
as North Korea jamming was still up on ex 7410. Scheduled 1300-1400.

Very unfortunate choice, as occasionally SIBC (Solomon Islands) is here

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1237-1315, Dec 3. The usual Sunday
"Country Roads" C&W music show with DJ in English playing "I
Never Promised You A Rose Garden," "Everybody's Somebody's
Fool," "End Of The World," "Crying in the Chapel," "My Special
Angel," etc.; SA - "the North Eastern Service of All India Radio
broadcasting from Shillong"; poor to almost fair.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. On Dec 3, again
found their programming out of sync with their normal timing, for
this one hour program that is repeated again-and-again every hour;
instead of the usual bell/gong being rung slowly three times at 1203
and 1403, today was heard at 1219 & 1419; fair-good.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1148-1203*, Dec 3,
Sunday. Religious preaching and religious singing; no break at ToH;
cut off in mid-song; poor, but a rare day with above threshold level
audio.

BTW - What has happened to NBC Bougainville (3325)? Have not
heard them recently during my usual monitoring times (1115+). Are
they signing off earlier than before, when they went off about 1200,
or are they completely off the air?

Also on Dec 3, RRI Palangkaraya (3325) was silent for a second day
in a row; 1139-1420. No signal at all on 3325.

U S A. 4875-USB, Air Force MARS net, 1320, Dec 3. The regular

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville. How ironic! Yesterday I 
questioned their recent absence and today (Dec 4) they are back
on the air again; 1140-1158*; DJ in Pidgin playing pop Pacific Islands
songs; suddenly cut off. They picked the perfect time to start up again,
as RRI Palangkaraya continues to be off the air here (third consecutive
day!), so no QRM. Frequency totally clear post-1158.

At 1159, checked for NBC Madang (3260), but they were already off
the air.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, 1235-1243,
Dec 4. The Monday only SAARC (The South Asian Association
for Regional Cooperation) news bulletin in English; almost readable,
but QRM from CODAR and CNR1 were just a little bit too strong.

CHINA. 9410, CNR5, 1207, Dec 4. In Chinese and // 5925. Recent
log in WRTH Facebook - "Fu Hsing BS in Chinese from Kuanyin
transmitters, with a weak signal with frequent fading in and out heard
at 12:04," is highly suspect; Hiroyuki-san was also listening today to
CNR5. Here in California, Fu Hsing BS (Taiwan) is impossible to hear
on 9410, due to this strong CNR5. The Fu Hsing BS frequency of 9774
has been silent for a long time now, as I still check it almost daily during
my monitoring.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6085, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata,
continues to be free of any N. Korea jamming, which is still up on
ex: 7410; Dec 4 at 1321.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. On Dec 4, at 1303,
programming back in sync with bell/gong being rung slowly three
times; yesterday was out-of-sync. As usual this frequency is never
jammed by N. Korea; good reception.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1218-1232, Dec 4. Monday edition
of "Say It In English"; "Mr. Harris," Tom's boss, talks to him about being
late for work (he overslept) and wants Tom to go on a business trip to
Geneva, Switzerland; fairly readable.

Thanks very much to an early alert by Hiroyuki Komatsubara,
on Dec 6, noted the return to this former frequency; not jammed
by North Korea, which was still jamming ex: 5920; very good

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1225-1310, Dec 6. Mostly
pop songs ("All Out of Love," by the Australian duo Air Supply,
etc.), except for news 1231-1241 & 1300-1305, both with many
reports from out-of-the-studio/sound bites (not readable); at 1305
the usual format of first a commercial announcement for radio
receivers ("range of shortwave, AM ..... radios"), followed by
"Waltzing Matilda," followed by full SA.

CANADA. 6030, Calgary - CFVP relaying CKMX (AM 1060), 1346,

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa. Thanks to recent reports by Glenn
and Dave Valko, of this having better than normal audio levels, tuned in
at 1331 and yes, definitely in English; 1336 Leo Sayer's pop song "More

Mostly non-stop religious (Christian) songs; in Pidgin; 1148 sounded like the
very distinctive promo for Stacy Rose's Sunday show "Island Praise", which
in the past started about 1201, but in promo unable to make out her current
schedule; her Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/ipraize/ . Suddenly

USA. 7505v, WRNO, 0354, Dec 11. Start of the one hour "multilingual"
show (mostly Chinese) called "Praise for Today" (have seen reports of this
as "Pray for Today"?); intro and exit briefly in English; for some reason, never
seems to start at ToH, but always before.

Re: RRI Palangkaraya back on SW again Ron Howard - Dec 12, 2017 13:19 UTC No.2839
INDONESIA. 3325, RRI Palangkaraya. Good news on Dec 12. 
Checking at 1128, found frequency clear (also no NBC Bougainville,
which has recently been silent); pleasantly surprised at 1216 to hear
the Jakarta news relay in Bahasa Indonesia, during which they also
ran a promo; longer than normal news segment; 1238-1239 ending
the news relay with the usual patriotic song 釘agimu Negeri・(For
You Our Country), followed by RRI jingle; poor.

Nice to have them back again! Several days ago I emailed the station
that I missed hearing them on SW and hoped they would return again
shortly. Today will write a follow up, thanking them for broadcasting
again via SW.

Re: China QRMing Zanzibar on 6015 kHz. Ron Howard - Dec 13, 2017 06:36 UTC No.2842
CHINA. 6015, CNR. On Dec 12, heard UNID station at 0253 till past
0302+; stronger than Zanzibar, which come on about 0300. At 0302
could hear reciting from the Qur'an (Zanzibar) underneath UNID. My
audio clip at http://goo.gl/Z8hr63 .

Thanks very much to Dave Valko for solving the identity of my UNID
that is now sadly causing QRM for Zanizibar from 0300 to 0345.
Email from Dave (Dec 13):

"I just downloaded Fergys lastest combined SW Skeds database posted
yesterday and CNR is listed on 6015 from 0000-0345 in Kazakh. In
HFCC. So that has to be it. Too bad it isn't anything more exotic. Yep,
6015 just went off at 0345. CNR."

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, Dec 12, come on about 0300. At 0302
could hear reciting from the Qur'an (Zanzibar) underneath CNR (China),
with CNR stronger than Zanzibar. This new development is unfortunate
for Zanzibar!

to date; 1128-1318; mostly pop songs; Australian rock 'n' roll band, the
Delltones, with "Get a Little Dirt On Your Hands," Australian pop band
Leonardo's Bride, with "Even When I'm Sleeping," the band originally
from New Zealand who moved to Australia, Split Enz, with "I Hope I
Never," etc.; many brief SAs ("Ozy Radio worldwide," etc.); news
segments (at 1204, 1239 & 1303 sound bites of Roy Moore, who lost
the Alabama election, saying "we also know that God is always in
control," etc.); several spots with commercial announcements for radio
receivers ("We have thousands of satisfied customers around the world.
So why not join them today?"), followed by laughing kookaburra, then
"Waltzing Matilda," followed by full ID; at 1316 heard my first Christmas
carol this year on SW ("Deck the Halls").

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1530-1559, Dec 15, Friday. In
English with the news (Myanmar's President meeting with Japanese
Prime Minister, in Japan, etc.) and the weather.

It was back in Dec 2014, at 1540, that I first heard Myanmar broadcasting
NKH's production of "Friends Around the World." Have enjoyed many such
programs over the years. Therefore was surprised this Friday, at 1540, to
hear instead the "Friday evening music program" with music from different
cultures (songs from Argentina) till 1553; then "Panoramic Myanmar" about
an ancient city; at 1559 covered by strong CRI sign on.

Was this just an anomaly or a permanent schedule change? Need to check
again next week.

Re: Monitoring Indonesia Ron Howard - Dec 17, 2017 15:28 UTC No.2857
INDONESIA. Atsunori Ishida's website (http://rri.jpn.org/) has
today (Dec 17) posted the following:

"This site will not be updated after December 31, 2017."

So he will no longer be doing his daily monitoring and posting
his results there. Would seem logical that his decision to do so
is due to the current lack of stations to report on.

At his site, note "Previous Results" that he started back in March
2010, a time that had a good number of stations to keep track of,
very much unlike the present situation today.

Certainly I will miss the excellent info that he has provided over the
years. A job very well done!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1025, Dec 17. Tuned
in to hear "The Twelve Days of Christmas"; 1036-1113, with Sunday

QRM; 1144-1157* pop songs and Xmas song "We Wish You a Merry

Usual recorded Chinese & English SA - "S W liu(6) ling(0) san(3) wu(5).

so an early BBS sign off today.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1238, Dec 17. Usual Sunday "Country
Roads" C&W music show with DJ in English; songs "Jolene" (Dolly
Parton), "Elusive Butterfly" (Bob Lind), Xmas song "I'll Be Home for
Christmas," etc.; DJ with modulation at a very low level, whereas the
music level was good; 1315 into Hindi.

It will be recalled that the northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya (means
"The Abode of Clouds") has a population of about 75% Christians, while
the capital city of Shillong (known as the "Scotland of the East"), has
close to 50% of the population being Christian. So Christmas is widely
celebrated. Today 1342-1358 with non-stop Xmas songs; "Winter
Wonderland," "Joy to the World," "The First Noel," "Jingle Bells," etc.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1114-1202*, Dec 19.
Better than the usual reception; various music; Pacific Islands songs,
The Rolling Stones "Brown Sugar," Xmas songs - "Deck the Hall,"
"We Wish You a Merry Christmas," "O Little Town Of Bethlehem,"
etc.; 1201 usual bird call and into the NBC news in English; suddenly
cut off. Unable to hear any RRI QRM.

INDIA. 5050, AIR Aizawl [non-log], checking here on Dec 18, after
Beibu Bay Radio signed off (1602*), to see if I could hear any carrier
at all from AIR, but the frequency was completely clear of any station;
AIR has been off the air here for a long time now.

Still off frequency 7555.62v, AIR via Delhi-Kingsway, 1211, Dec 19.
Daily I find them on a slightly different frequency; decent level carrier,

about today being International Migrants Day; mostly fair.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC (presumed), 1205 and random

pop songs, except for news 1231-1236, which had several sound
bites; very close to being readable.

5055, Radio 4KZ, 1433-1505, Dec 21. Much better reception than
yesterday; same format as yesterday; 1500 news (mentioned
"bomb threat"?); getting closer to being semi-readable, but still with
some SSB chatter in Spanish which blocks 4KZ reception. My best
reception here seems to start about 45 minutes before my local
sunrise and slowly improves a little.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1120-1202, Dec 21. DJ in
Pidgin playing pop Pacific Islands music and Xmas song - "Joy to the

given; audio ended 1202.

Anomaly today. Normally the transmitter would have gone off at 1202,
but today their carrier continued on past 1335. First time I have noted
this happening. Maybe they will be doing some holiday extended
broadcasts? (see Solomon Islands).

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1206*, Dec 21. Cut off
just after the NBC news in English; poor.

SIKKIM. new 4836.0, AIR Gangtok, ex: 4835.0, at 1329 & 1510, Dec 21.
Only hearing a carrier, but nothing on their former ex 4835.0, so presume
it was them.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, probably Wantok FM relay, during this
extended broadcast on Dec 21, at 1208+; pop hit songs and Xmas song
"The First Noel"; didn't stay on too long, as gone by a check at 1220.
Would like to think that maybe they will do more and longer extended

"if you like to join the conversation." My audio http://goo.gl/kQutXV .
Finally able to pull in some audio good enough to record, even though
it's poor quality!

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. Last Friday, noted the absence
of the usual NKH production of "Friends Around the World" at 1540.
Instead Myanmar carried their "Friday evening music program."

Dec 22 (Friday), checked again at 1540 and again found "Friday evening
music program." So after many years of running the NHK program, they
have decided to drop it from their schedule at this time?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1201*, Dec 22. Cut off
before they made it into the NBC news.

BTW - Dec 22, had no signal from NBC Bougainville (3325) from 1135+.

SIKKIM. 4835.0, AIR Gangtok. Dec 22, back on frequency again, after their

BHUTAN[non-log]. 6035, BBS. On Dec 27, checking 0112-0135,
noted they didn't sign on as they normally would have during this
time period, as has recently been heard.

BOTSWANA. 4930, VOA, continuing with their expanded schedule;
Dec 27, 0200-0205 VOA news; followed by music program SA as
"VOA 1" (http://www.voanews.com/t/92.html); fair.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1112, Dec 27.
Recently has been off the air.

** BRAZIL. 6011.736 (thanks to Dave Valko for this measurement), R疆io
Inconfid麩cia. Don't recall them being this far off frequency before? Thanks
to Dave's alert, heard faint audio with some music at 0144, on Dec 27; too
weak for any meaningful details.

ETHIOPIA[non][non-log]. 11600, Radio OMN (Oromia Media Network) via
IRRS (Kostinbrod [Sofia]). Not heard since my Dec 22 (Friday) reception,
checking through Dec 27 (Wednesday). Would certainly seem to confirm
Mauno Ritola idea that they were testing last week? So what is next for this
station? Will they actually start regular broadcasting?

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1241-1252, Dec 27. The Wednesday
edition of the English language lesson "Say It In English"; today about having
some film dropped off to be developed. A repeat of the Monday show.

transcript and audio streaming of today's show at http://goo.gl/UfeC7W .

PHILIPPINES. 17700, R. Pilipinas, 0206, Dec 27; 擢rom the presidential
palace Manila, Dateline Malacang,・info about Mindanao survey regarding
satisfaction with President Duterte; this frequency much better than // 15640

didn't sound like a Wantok FM relay, as there were no frequent SAs,

- - - - - - - Ron posted to DXLD yg:

** BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1057-1200*, June 24.
In Pidgin; segments of pop Pacific Islands music and talking; 1146
montage of pop songs along with "NBC Bougainville" [SA]ID; mentioned
"Saturday night" and just gave 95.5 FM frequency; 1155 another
montage of pop songs and another "NBC Bougainville" [SA]ID, but this
time with "3325 kilohertz, 90 meter band, shortwave one"; cut off at
1200*; poor.

BTW - After 1200, no trace of Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, which conforms
to Atsunori Ishida's website (http://rri.jpn.org/); so RRI last heard on
3325 was on June 16. Now am only hearing Indonesia via SW from
RRI Ternate (open carrier) and VOI (poor). A sad state of affairs! (Ron
Howard, oceanside at Pacific Grove, CA, Et E1, antenna: 100' long
wire, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 5037-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station), 1214 &
1240, June 24. Numbers in Chinese; poor. Thanks to info at Hiroyuki
Komatsubara's website, "Now On The Radio" (http://radio.chobi.net/DX/)
(Ron Howard, oceanside at Pacific Grove, CA, Et E1, antenna: 100' long
wire, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. On June 24:

Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1011 and subsequent checking till 1055:

5995, 6250, 6350, and 9100 were all in //.

VOH on 4885 clearly had different programming from the other
frequencies; was not a matter of being somewhat out of syn, but
had completely different programs; at 1055 confirmed 4885 was
still VOH, with a series of the usual "V O H" [SA]IDs. This conforms
to excellent info at Hiroyuki Komatsubara's website, "Now On The
Radio" (http://radio.chobi.net/DX/).

Voice of Freedom, now back on former 5920 (ex 5940), with strong
N. Korean jamming; 1005 and subsequent checking through 1252.
This also conforms to info at Hiroyuki Komatsubara's website,
which I find to be an excellent source for up-to-date info about
Asian SW activity (Ron Howard, oceanside at Pacific Grove, CA,
Et E1, antenna: 100' long wire, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1201-1206*, June 24
(Saturday). As it's the weekend, no news at ToH; pop songs; suddenly
off the air; poor.

3365, NBC Milne Bay, on June 24, at 1207 & 1217, was only hearing a
decent level open carrier with no audio; unusual for them to keep the
transmitter on after they end their audio (Ron Howard, oceanside at
Pacific Grove, CA, Et E1, antenna: 100' long wire, dxldyg via DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay via SIBC, 1227, June 24.
Extended broadcast, as Glenn also noted today; pop songs (Whitney
Houston - "I Will Always Love You," etc.); still on at 1242, but gone by
1255. My local sunrise was at 1250 UT (Ron Howard, oceanside at
Pacific Grove, CA, Et E1, antenna: 100' long wire, dxldyg via DX

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (11) Ron Howard - Jun 27, 2017 22:22 UTC No.2372
BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, 1235-1243,
June 26. The Monday only SAARC (The South Asian Association
for Regional Cooperation) news bulletin in English, starting with
鄭ssalamu alaikum. This is Bangladesh Betar・ clearly in English,
but not very readable due to usual CODAR and CNR1 QRM.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1203*, on June 26.
June 27, no trace off them; certainly off the air today. Palangkaraya
continues to be silent here, so June 27 a totally clear frequency.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. On June 26 (Monday), tuned
in at 1220 to heard an English language lesson, as well as in Burmese;
ended at 1229; some of the English heard - "Can you show me how
the machine works?", "No, no. Not like that", "Put money in, then dial
the number", "Could you please slow down?", "How do you play that?",
"How to slow down?", "How do you use the phone?", "Easy to drive",
"Where are you going to park it?", "Press the accelerator gently", "We
are going to hit that car", etc.; unable to ID brief program name, but
almost positive was not a Radio Australia production (in the past, RA
produced the English segments for Mon. & Wed.) Suspect this show
will be rebroadcast again on Wednesday?

VANUATU. 7259.96, R. Vanuatu, June 26. Poor with QRN (static);
0554-0608 interview in vernacular (no break at ToH); Pacific Islands
songs; 0629-0637 segment with intro and exit of drums; clear SA/ID
for "Radio Vanuatu."

BTW - As a point of interest, it should be noted that the President of
Vanuatu suddenly died on June 17. The electoral college will select
a new president on July 3, so assume there will be many segments on
SW about this activity.

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, on June 26, with sports coverage;
preempted regular programs; tuned in at 0347; probably the COSAFA
Castle Cup game between Tanzania & Malawi, held in RSA. No drums
as usual at 0359, but at 0401 time pips and sounded like the start of a
second audio feed with the news, mixing with the sports coverage audio.
Poor reception, so hard to be positive as to just what was happening. ZBC
was silent on June 25.

** KOREA SOUTH. 4885, "Radio Free Korea" - VOH - Echo of Hope,
1141-1241, June 29. At both 1141 & 1241 heard what for me was a
new [SA]ID in English - "Radio Free Korea." Per informative info from
Amano-san (Saitama, Japan), the same program is repeated
here on 4885 every hour; program is "Radio Broadcasting Guide,"
provided for by "Foreign Family Alliance"; program is different from
the other Echo of Hope VOH frequencies, hence 4885 is NOT // to
3985, 5995, 6250, 6350 nor 9100.

At 1203 gong/bell rung slowly three times, followed by full [SA]ID in Korean.
Thanks very much to Amano-san, here is the [SA]ID and his translation,
posted to Hiroyuki Komatsubara's website, "Now On The Radio"

Thanks to Chris Kadlec, an expert on matters relating to Korea, who 
posted the following to WRTH Facebook page, in response to my
posting there today. Helpful info!

"Ron, I basically posted this same news yesterday on this same page,
[I missed seeing his posting - Ron] minus the translations which I am
too busy to bother with honestly, though I have the full recording of
the 60-minute broadcast that is being looped as of a few days ago
(thanks for the more detailed post!).

4885 has gone rogue and is looping each hour with IDs about every
10 minutes. Just a correction on the Radio Free Korea mention:
RFK is a different station, AM 1143. However, of course, they're
basically all run by the same people at the NIS [National Intelligence
Service, the chief intelligence agency of South Korea - Ron] from the
same tower sites (which I've also posted photos of some times in the
past). This would be the equivalent of "stunting" I think. They're messing
around with their frequencies and programming and North Korea is doing
the same right now too. So who knows what they're up to with an RFK
[SA]ID in there...!!"

Re: Bhutan - BBS Ron Howard - Jul 01, 2017 15:30 UTC No.2385
BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, tuned in at 1330 till off just after 1400, on
July 1. Nowadays I do not often listen at this time period, so cannot
say if this was an anomaly extended broadcast or a new schedule,
but certainly was a pleasant surprise; poor reception. 1330-1354
with call-in program in vernacular; callers singing indigenous songs;
as it was via the phone, of course no accompanying music, just solo
singing; adults calling in, except for one rather young girl (please
listen to my audio) who also sang a song; 1354 end of program
and went to their unique indigenous music and singing till 1400.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (11) Ron Howard - Jul 04, 2017 04:01 UTC No.2387
BHUTAN[non-log]. 6035, BBS. Regarding my July 1 reception
till just after 1400: July 2 & 3 found no BBS, after starting to check
at 1230. So my reception would seem to have been a one day only
anomaly?

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville.

June 28, cut off at 1159*.

June 29, not broadcasting today; clearly off the air.

June 30, at 1154 pop song by Police - "Every Little Thing She
Does Is Magic"; 1200* suddenly off.

July 1, station jingle and SA/ID, then cut off at 1201*.

July 2 (Sunday), 1013-1206* mostly religious (Christian) songs in
English; DJ in Pidgin; PSAs in English regarding general election.

July 3, at 1201, SA/ID for "NBC Bougainville"; instrumental tune "My
Heart Will Go On"; PNG bird call and into the "NBC News in brief"
with sound bites; cut off at 1203*.

BTW - Through July 3, RRI Palangkaraya remains off the air on 3325.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope VOH. Regarding my recent
reporting of the "Radio Free Korea" SA/ID here: thanks to Amano-san for
explaining what I actually heard. The program's name that is looped
every hour is called "Radio Broadcasting Guide." As such it provides
a lot of info about Korean stations, with segments with many different
singing jingle IDs, as well as clips of different stations spoken SA/IDs, which
is what I heard with "Radio Free Korea." Recently at 1123 & 1223, am
hearing "V O A World News" SA/IDs in English, whereas most of the
program is in Korean. Thanks again to Amano-san for his helpful
assistance.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. Last June 26 (Monday) from 1220
to 1229, heard an English language lesson. Checked on Monday, July 3,
from 1215 to 1245, but no English heard. The 26th was an anomaly?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. Thanks to Timm Breyel (Malaysia) for posting
to WRTH Facebook page an official announcement from NBC (June 29),
titled "NBC increases coverage for the 2017 general election." NBC has
reactivated three medium wave transmitters. They are at Vanimo (Sandaun
Province), Lae (Morobe Province) and Kimbe (West New Britain Province),
all done with the help of aid from the Australian government. "He [NBC
Managing Director, Mr. Kora Nou] said people should have a clear radio
service on the 'AM' band" and also "He said NBC is continuing to examine
all its transmitters nationwide to see if it can also increase FM radio and TV
coverage elsewhere in the country."

Sad to say the announcement never once mentioned SW radio.

Re: Myanmar Radio with English lesson Ron Howard - Jul 05, 2017 14:16 UTC No.2393
On July 5 (Wednesday), at 1236, on 5985, tuned into an 
English language lesson ("Say It In English") already in
progress; continuing dialog about Tom's aunt learning to
drive and having an accident ("If only she has listened
to me . . . If only she had been more careful . . . If only
she had stopped in time," etc.); also in Burmese; closing
program SA/ID in English at 1247. My local sunrise was at
1253 UT, whereas Yangon sunset was at 1212 UT.

So clearly the "Say It In English" lesson is broadcast on
both Monday & Wednesday here, but the exact timing of
which is not known.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1122-1201*, 
July 5. Usual format of playing pop songs (Journey -
"Don't Stop Believing," etc.), but with anomaly of no DJ
today; just a minute of dead air between songs; 1200 SA/ID;
PNG bird call and start of NBC News till cut off.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, 1204-1210*, July 5. Non-stop
EZL music till suddenly cut off; BBS/Bhutan not on the air.

INDONESIA. 9525.95, VOI, on July 7, at 1033 through
subsequent checking till 1207, found only open carrier; no
modulation/audio at all.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1115, July 5.
Why do they stay on this jammed frequency, when their
ex 5940 is clear of any jamming? VOF signal often does
fairly well against the jamming, e.g. July 7, at 1120 almost
fair reception even with jamming. Ex 6135 is still jammed
with white noise.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1037, July 7.
Sounds of a large crowd; sounded like some interviews at
the event; strongly suspect this was coverage of Yakutsk's
Guinness World Records event with 16,620 people wearing
traditional Yakut clothing - http://goo.gl/xspMww .

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on July 9,
Sunday, with a second consecutive day of very decent,
above average reception.

1028-1125: Election coverage via "NBC National Radio"
audio feed, in English; many different reports giving the
vote count; "Stay with us for more election 2017 coverage,"
ad for mobile phone service, "Welcome back to election
2017 coverage"; promos and PSA about "building a great
nation" and for "NBC TV"; "NBC National Radio updates";
"NBC official broadcaster of the 2017 election."

1125-1201*: Local "NBC Bougainville" ID and into the usual
Sunday program of religious (Christian) songs mostly in
English; DJ in Pidgin; suddenly cut off.

A point of interest - PNG during this election has over 3,300
candidates running for office!

KOREA SOUTH. 4885. Echo of Hope VOH, on July 9
with anomaly of only hearing a strong open carrier the
whole time; no modulation at all; starting at tune in of
1054 through last check at 1230.

It will be recalled that 4885 has recently been running a
different program ("Radio Broadcasting Guide") than all
the other VOH frequencies (3985 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350
// 9100), which today were all on as usual with normal
audio at quick checks at 1131 & 1218.

5920, Voice of Freedom, July 9, brief check at 1135, found
them somewhat stronger than the jamming; propagation
must be currently favoring VOF, rather than N. Korea
jamming.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, noted after
Bougainville signed off on July 9; at 1205 giving vote count;
promo for NBC National Radio; pop song till suddenly cut off
at 1211*.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on July 11,
with special extended broadcast.

1028-1203: Continuing special election coverage; same
format as I reported July 9, with many different reports
giving election results; some breaks for ads, promos and
PSAs.

Extended broadcast 1203-1320+:

1203-1208: NBC News in English.

1208-1230: DJ in Pidgin, playing pop Pacific Islands songs.

1230-1245: "NBC Bougainville update," in Pidgin, with long
list of the voting results.

1245-1320+: more Pacific Islands songs.

July 10, noted 1201* cut off, so today was the first day of
their extended broadcasting.

My local sunrise was at 1257 UT. Wonderful to hear this NBC
station without any Indonesian (RRI Palangkaraya) QRM, as

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, tuned in at
1018 and still on the air at 1318, on July 12, with second
day of extended broadcasting well past the normal 1200*
cut off. Today with completely different format than heard
on July 9 and 11; didn't carry the "NBC National Radio"
audio feed in English; instead had local segments of
non-stop music (John Denver - "Take Me Home, Country
Roads," etc.) and segments with the election results in
Pidgin; a number of local SA/IDs.

CHINA. 7118-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station),
at 0957, on July 12. Numbers in Chinese. Strange they would
now be in the ham band! Thanks to tip from Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan). My audio at http://goo.gl/5EQ24m .

INDONESIA. 9525.95, VOI. Years ago, who would have
thought we would see the day that this country only had
one active SW station? Yes, now RRI Ternate (3344.86)
has been silent for several days. As I have been reporting
recently, RRI Palangkaraya (3325) has been absent and
still so through July 12.

VOI heard July 12, at 1001, with news in English; QRM from
OTH radar.

July 13, at 1117, heard NBC Bougainville reception, on 3325, with moderate QRM from RRI, which 
had been silent for a while. By 1150, mixing together at equal strength, producing a mess here.

Today NBC with DJ in Pidgin; playing pop songs; no election coverage noted and not running the
NBC National Radio audio feed; RRI signal improving the whole time. Suppose I should be glad
to hear the return of RRI, but in truth, I had very much been enjoying NBC with clear reception!

NBC at 1200 continued on with extended broadcast; no NBC news, just continuing DJ in Pidgin
and pop songs, while RRI went into the usual Jakarta news feed, which ended at 1225 with
patriotic song and then local SA/ID. Tuned out at 1235.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 0957-1016 &
1101-1110, July 14. Local programs in Pidgin; no "NBC
National Radio" audio feed today; local segments of
election results (vote count) and pop songs; by 1110
started to hear QRM from RRI, making reception of
NBC unpleasant, so will not be reporting this as much
as when NBC was QRM-free. Thanks to Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan), who today reported an extended
broadcast here at 1250, mixing with RRI.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1135-
1203*, July 14. In Chinese; some EZL songs; 1201 the
usual filler instrumental music till cut off; weak, but clear
frequency. No BBS/Bhutan heard today.

6060, Sichuan PBS-2, 1214, July 14. A quick check today
confirms again what I have recently been hearing - Cuba
is now here (1100-1400), mostly blocking the former clear
reception of PBS-2; now making a mess.

7118-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station), at 0950,
on July 14. Numbers in Chinese; still in the ham band where
they shouldn't be.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, on July 14,
at 1017, with just open carrier; by 1110 some faint audio;
unusable. Thanks to Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), who
today reported an extended broadcast here at 1250.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands[non-log]. July 14, continues
silent.

3365, NBC Milne Bay[non-log]. July 14, continues silent.

7324.95, Wantok Radio Light[non-log]. On July 14, did
one of my periodic checks here at 0948 (before the *1000
sign on of CRI) and found 7325 a clear frequency with no
stations present. Aoki now shows "7325" in red, with an "x"
("off the air").

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1025-1100,
July 14. Above average reception; music program (folk,
ballads, pop, etc.); 1050 usual SA/ID ("Radio Sakha") and
gave phone number; 1100 IS (Jew's harp - khomus) and
4+1 time pips; then at almost 1101 covered by strong
CRI sign on here. This is one of my favorite stations for
listening to their nice music. My audio http://goo.gl/XqY8gP .

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 0947-1041,
July 15. Local (non-NBC National Radio) segments with
the vote count in Pidgin and pop songs (Celine Dion -
"My Heart Will Go On," etc.); by 1041, had QRM from
RRI.

July 16 (Sunday), 0954-1106. Local (non-NBC National Radio)
segments with the vote count in Pidgin and religious (Christian)
songs as usual on Sunday; local SA/IDs; 1030 noted Indonesia
underneath with reciting from the Qur'an.

No extended broadcast today; instead an early sign off; gone
by 1156, leaving frequency clear for Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya,
which by 1211 was doing very well with the Jakarta news
audio feed.

CHINA. 7118-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers
station), 1112 & 1136, July 15. Numbers in Chinese; fair.
July 16, at 1150 & 1225; fair.

KOREA NORTH. 3277 (AM), V28 ("The Parrot"), 1232-
1240*, July 16. With Korean numbers; poor, but signal
improving.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, anomaly
on July 16, as not heard at usual checking of 0951, 1026
& 1042, but was on the air at tune in of 1158 till cut off at
1230*; giving vote count, saying the number and then
repeating with individual digits (e.g. 816, then 8 1 6); poor.
Madang come back on the air later, as Hiroyuki Komatsubara
today reports them on the air at 1340, so perhaps anomaly
due to some type of transmitter problem today?

3275, NBC Southern Highlands, at 0951, 1026 & 1042, on
July 16, heard a decent level open carrier here that I believe
was them; off the air by 1050; never any audio.

3365, NBC Milne Bay[non-log]. July 16, continues silent.

PERU. 4810, Radio Logos, 1113, July 16. Unusually good
signal, with religious songs. Rare for me to hear them at this
level! My audio at http://goo.gl/ZZncpr . Also heard at the
same time in Japan by DFS - http://goo.gl/K5eUqR .

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

Maybe the others are also back today? Needs confirmation!

Chinese : 4820, 5935, 6050, 7240, 7450 kHz.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, July 17, with
outstanding reception; 1012-1028*; in Pidgin; "regional"
voting results for "North Bougainville," with long list of
candidates and their vote count (one received 18 votes);
"total number of allowable ballot papers," etc.; fairly
readable; suddenly off, leaving a very weak RRI
Palangkaraya in the clear, with reciting from the Qur'an.

*1034 suddenly back on with music program of pop Pacific
Islands songs; still on the air at my last check at 1220. My
readable audio at http://goo.gl/C8kj14 .

KOREA SOUTH. On July 17:

Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1138:

3985 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350, but found 9100 clearly off the air
which is rare for them to be silent; leaving frequency clear for
faint SOH (Taiwan) reception, which is normally heard far
underneath VOH.

At the same time, VOH on 4885, as usual, with program
"Radio Broadcasting Guide," in Korean and not // to the
other frequencies.

Voice of Freedom, first day back on former 6135 (ex 5920),
at 1144. Both 6135 and ex 5920 both heavily jammed, while
former ex 5940 remains a clear frequency. I again wonder
why they don't go back to clear 5940?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, July 17, with
well above the normal reception; 1043 pop Pacific Islands
song; 1047, in Pidgin with election results; still on at 1220.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands, on July 17, with another day

RUSSIA. reactivated 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk,
1022-1104, July 18. Phone conversation; EZL music;
1051 usual "Radio Sakha" SA/ID; recently noticed they no
longer run a series of commercial announcements after
the ID as they did in the past; best reception in LSB to
get away from moderate QRM from 7300. Several times
stronger than // 7345, which was much weaker than usual;
1100 IS (Jew's harp - khomus) and 4+1 time pips.

At *1101, CRI (7345) signed on and blocked the weak R.
Sakha reception; certainly after 1101, no question that
7295 is the best frequency for me to hear them on. I last
heard them here on Feb 26, so very nice to again hear

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, still on at
1245+, July 19. Usual local programming in Pidgin;
election results and mostly pop songs with DJ.

The significance of today's broadcast is that there was no
trace of any RRI Palangkaraya signal; no carrier at any
time. A short lived reactivation?

CHINA. 7118-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers
station), 1134, July 19, with "ham jam," which is a ham
in CW jamming the Chinese numbers station. My audio
at http://goo.gl/At9G2L . Feedback from Lou (VK5EEE)
in Australia: "A pity when hams don't do this with their
call signs to be legal. Sending a test VVV is perfectly
legal so long as ID is given at required minimum periods.
It can encourage additional 'ham jammers' to test their
equipment, but a solitary VVV without callsign is likely
to end up being solitary and ineffective. CW QRM
especially Contest QRM sends our Indonesian pirates
off the 40m band, so it can be effective!"

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, at 1205, on July 19.
Special coverage of Myanmar vs Singapore soccer match;
in vernacular; usual background sounds for such an event
(crowd cheering, loudspeaker, etc.); preempted regular
programming; at half-time break, played indigenous music
till resuming coverage again.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1210-1223*, July 22. Announcer in vernacular;
usual short break for their unique indigenous instrumental music at 1215;
suddenly off; PBS Yunnan already off. BBS is not often heard.

BOUGAINVILLE. This Sunday (July 23), listening mostly from 1042 to
1325+. All local programming in Pidgin; frequent SA/IDs for "NBC
Bougainville"; music program (some Sunday religious songs, pop Pacific
Islands music and C&W songs [Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers - "Islands
In The Stream," etc.]); no election results today, but several mentions of
"regional seats"; yet another day with an extended broadcast past their
former 1200*. For a while (1042 to about 1130) did have some RRI
Palangkaraya light QRM underneath, but NBC was much stronger and
their signal improved to almost fair at times.

My report on July 19, for 1245+, with "no trace of any RRI Palangkaraya
signal" is now explained by Atsunori Ishida, who lists RRI that day at 1500,
so a very late sign on.

NBC Madang (3260), on July 23, also running past 1325+, but very different
format than NBC Bougainville; instead with a lot of info in Pidgin about the
vote count, but not very readable, unlike Bougainville. NBC on 3275 & 3365
continue silent.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, 1203-1216+, July 20. Extended broadcast
past normal 1200*; non-stop EZL instrumental music till suddenly cut off;
BBS/Bhutan off the air during this time today.

INDONESIA. 9525.95, VOI, 1040, July 21. In English with music program;
1056 in stilted Chinese; 1213 in Japanese.

KOREA NORTH[non]. back to former 5965, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via
Yamata, ex 7215. At 1300, on July 21; in Korean with no jamming yet;
fair-good.

July 22, first day of heavy N. Korea jamming, on 5965, at 1246; before
the *1300 of Shiokaze.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. Special coverage of Myanmar vs
Brunei, in the U23 soccer games (under age 23), on July 21, at 1139 and
still going at 1255; seemed to perhaps be a TV audio feed, as less than
full spoken coverage.

July 23, with coverage of the Myanmar vs Australia U23 soccer game;
these matches being held in Yangon; heard at 1239; fair.

For those that are interested, here is video of today's highlights of
the U23 soccer match between Myanmar and Australia, that was
held in Thuwunna Stadium, Yangon:

open carrier, but unable to pull in any audio. Cut off time
matches my positive BBS reception here on July 1, so believe it
was again them with an extended broadcast.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville.

July 24, listening on-and-off 1058-1249+; mostly non-stop pop hit songs
("Another Day in Paradise," "True Colors," etc.); very few announcers in
Pidgin, so no election results today, but still with extended broadcast past
1200. No RRI Palangkaraya QRM noted today, due to another late sign on
per Atsunori Ishida ("-1400-1702* LA.").

July 25, at 1140, again with music program noted till tuned out at 1302.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, at 1237, on July 25. Start of the usual Tuesday
滴eart to Heart・program; DJ in English playing EZL hit love songs ("Can't
Help Falling in Love," Celine Dion - "The Power of Love," etc.).

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1206-1224+, July 26. PBS Yunnan (China)
cut off at 1206*, leaving weak, but in the clear BBS; announcer in
vernacular with usual short breaks at 1213 and 1216 for the unique
indigenous instrumental music; 1224 into indigenous music and
singing. Found off the air at 1246 check, so did not go through to
1400 today. My local sunrise today was at 1309 UTC, while sunset
at Thimphu was 1253 UTC.

This is encouraging to find them running past PBS Yunnan going
off the air.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1058, July 26. A moment
of nostalgia here, with playing of the song "Waltzing Matilda," by a
heavily accented Australian singer. 1109 - Dire Straits with "Walk Of Life."
No extended broadcast today, but instead was off the air before 1152.
At which time I heard Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya in the clear with almost
fair reception; well above the norm for them, with time pips at 1200 and
Jakarta news audio feed at 1201.

Noted 3260 (NBC Madang - PNG), at 1254 and subsequent checking
through to 1325, with no modulation/audio at all, but decent level open
carrier.

AUSTRALIA[non-log]. 5055, the future 4KZ - While daily monitoring
for the activation of this low powered station, am finding more and more
USB chatter in Spanish. My audio at http://goo.gl/19yTQf . Seems I may
have some QRM to contend with whenever 4KZ starts up. At 1234, on
Aug 2.

BHUTAN[non-logs]. 6035, BBS. On Aug 1, noted PBS Yunnan (China)
till it cut off about 1208, with non-stop easy-listening filler music.
No Bhutan heard here today, unlike yesterdays BBS 1219*.

Aug 2, with PBS Yunnan (China) going off at 1200*, after being in Chinese,
with EZL song. No BBS today after PBS went off.

So BBS is only on after 1200 erratically!

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio. It was back in Sept. 2016, that during
the 1300-1400 time period they changed from being in Chinese, over to
Vietnamese, but Aug 3, at 1340 was clearly back again in Chinese; SA in
English - "Beibu Bay Radio"; 1400 time pips; time given in Chinese and
English ("Beijing time is now 10 PM,"); "Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio" SA
in English; briefly in English with "B B R Evening News" intro; into news
in Vietnamese. Have not heard AIR Aizawl (India) here for a while now.

So is 1300-1400 now completely back to Chinese? Is the former brief
English segment still at about 1320? New schedule? Needs more
monitoring!

INDONESIA. 3325, RRI Palangkaraya, 1406, Aug 3. Palangkaraya
local news; ending at 1413 with the playing of the patriotic/national
song 泥irgahayu Indonesiaku.・br>
It will be recalled that Aug 17th is Independence Day in Indonesia, so
all month long they will be playing 泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・at the end
of all their news programs.

Voice of Indonesia, back on the former 9524.95 (ex 9525.95), on Aug 2,
in Chinese at 1138; in Japanese at 1226; at 1315, SA & frequencies in
English; "Today in History," "Focus"; close to being readable, but not
quite. Aug 3, still on 9524.95.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 5965, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata, *1300,
Aug 3. As it's Thursday, checking for English; yes and also unjammed
today; 1330 repeat of first half hour. My audio http://goo.gl/jTVYdd (Ron
Howard, oceanside at Pacific Grove, CA)

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, on Aug 2, at 1246. Being
jammed with pulsating noise, but fortunately not the heavy white noise
jamming that is still up on ex 6135, so reception not so bad. My audio at
http://goo.gl/VNkyxw .

Aug 3, found VOF back on 6135 (ex 5920), at 1139 and subsequent
checking till 1425; very much blocked by white noise jamming, while
ex 5920 had the usual lighter pulsating noise jamming.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1119-1201*, Aug 4.
Reception above the norm, but with summertime QRN (static)
and light QRM from RRI Palangkaraya; fortunately for me, NBC
was much stronger; in English & Pidgin with many mentions of
"on the island"; 1123 Public Service Announcement in English
for benefits ("Bring your registration card and ID"); DJ in Pidgin
playing pop Pacific Islands songs; 1155 DJ with SA ("NBC
Bougainville broadcasting 95 point 5, FM band . . 3 point
3 2 5 kilohertz, 90 meter band, shortwave one"); "Friday night,
Friday number four." After 1201* cut off, RRI Palangkaraya
was in the clear with audio feed of the Jakarta news.

My audio at http://goo.gl/oowoyk .

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1300-1400, Aug 4. Yes, they
have reverted back to their pre-Sept. 2016 schedule; mostly in
Chinese, but now with no brief English segment. They continue
with the previous format of having a brief Thai language segment,
today heard 1331+, otherwise in Chinese.

6200, Voice of Jinling. This is a very cosmopolitan station! For over
a month now, just after sign on, have been hearing nice traditional
French songs (very entertaining!). Aug 4, at 1238 & 1247 with French
songs, otherwise in Chinese, with what sounded like many commercial
announcements; very light QRM from Xizang PBS (Tibet, via Lhasa),
also on frequency. My audio at http://goo.gl/9eY1GV .

KOREA SOUTH. 6135, Voice of Freedom (ex 5920). Aug 4, still
heard here with the usual white noise jamming, but today VOF with
about the best ever reception at 1021 and subsequent checking
till 1237.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang. Aug 4, running longer
than 3325; pop song (Little River Band - "Cool Changes"); on-air phone
calls in Pidgin; 1224* cut off. Since the end of the election results, note
Madang has had a good number of these call-in shows, which I assume
are callers commenting on the recent election. Not nearly as strong as
NBC Bougainville (3325).

3275, NBC Southern Highlands[non-log], on Aug 4, not heard.

3365, NBC Milne Bay[non-log], on Aug 4, continues silent.

Re: Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya Ron Howard - Aug 05, 2017 14:28 UTC No.2448
INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1139, Aug 5, with 
NBC Bougainville clearly off the air at this time. Almost fair reception
at 1232, with audio feed of the Jakarta news in Bahasa Indonesia,
with item about the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations)
meeting being held today in Manila; short sound bite in English of
Philippines Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano's ASEAN
speech - "We now enjoy peace, security and stability in the region.
More importantly . . ."; ending the news at 1234, by playing the
patriotic/national song 泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・ SA "Pro Satu RRI
Palangkaraya."

It will be recalled that this Aug 17th is Independence Day in Indonesia,
so all month long RRI will be playing 泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・at the

to hear the Monday edition of the English language lesson ("Say It

dialogue between "Mr. Harris" and "Tom," who wants Tom to take the
morning 7:00 train to Manchester; "The meeting is very important.
Don't miss the train"; Tom works for a company that "makes some
of the finest clocks and watches in the world," but he is "never on
time for anything"; he missed the train and then rushes to take a
taxi to the airport to catch the 8:00 plane to Manchester; 1227 end
of "Say It In English"; fairly readable, but background noise almost
like low level white noise jamming. My local sunrise was at 1318

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1255-1325, on Aug 7.
Surprisingly strong signal, but mixing with CRI; 1300 IS (Jew's harp -

heard before after ToH; non-stop traditional indigenous songs. My

Re: Echo of Hope - VOH anomaly on 4885 kHz. Ron Howard - Aug 08, 2017 15:22 UTC No.2451

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, on Aug 8, instead
of the normal starting and ending at the ToH for the
one hour program "Radio Broadcasting Guide," which is
repeated again every hour, today was far out of sync and
had some transmitter problems; 1303-1320*, *1322-1323*,
*1327+; at 1322 bell/gong rung slowly three times and regular
intro to the program; normally this would have been at 1303,
so today about 19 minutes out of sync; the next hour at 1420
and 1423, there was no transmitter problem, but still out of sync
by the same amount of time; good reception.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS. Aug 9, a very good day here! Heard PBS
Yunnan cut off at 1205*, leaving BBS 1205-1248*; various amounts
of adjacent QRM; 1205-1221 with the usual monologue in vernacular;
at 1214, 1216 & 1218 normal brief break for indigenous instrumental
music; 1221-1230 indigenous singing and music; 1230-1248* with two
announcers chatting in vernacular. My audio at http://goo.gl/SoeM1J .

My local sunrise today was at 1320 UT, while sunset at Thimphu, was
at 1244 UT.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, Aug 9, with normal format
of DJ in Pidgin playing pop songs till suddenly off at 1146*, at which time
had only a faint open carrier below threshold level from RRI Palangkaraya.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1306, Aug 9. Noted a surprising bad rap (or
hip hop?) song, filled with very strong language of mostly swear words.
Surely they could have picked a better song! DJ in English; 1315 promo
in Hindi for "headline"; usual local SA in English and into a discussion in
English. My audio at http://goo.gl/kiWzwK , without the rap song!

Re: Echo of Hope - VOH anomaly on 4885 kHz. Ron Howard - Aug 09, 2017 16:28 UTC No.2453
VOH on 4885 kHz. back to normal Aug 9. Programs starts and ends at top-of-the-hour.

Re: North Korea (DPRK) anomaly Ron Howard - Aug 10, 2017 21:21 UTC No.2454
KOREA SOUTH. What with all the current news stories about North
Korea (DPRK), was interesting to note that on Aug 10, there was a
major anomaly, with about one hour of no jamming at all from DPRK.
A very rare treat to hear ROK stations without the normally strong
interference from the north.

Echo of Hope - VOH:

6350, with their third program, not // to other VOH frequencies;
1219-1228 and subsequently till jamming started up between
1241-1248; heard with QRM from some type of pulsating noise
(believe not DPRK jamming).

3985 // 5995 // 6250 // 9100, heard in the clear 1211-1216 and
subsequently till jamming started up between 1241-1248. See
below for later 6250 UNID.

4885, with the regular "Radio Broadcasting Guide" program in Korean;
quick check at 1217 and subsequently till jamming started up between
1241-1248. Program being out of sync on the 8th proved to be a one
day only anomaly. Now back to program starting and ending at ToH.
This frequency is always free of jamming.

Voice of the People:

3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1230, all free from jamming till
it started up between 1241-1248, but 4450 did have strong QRM.

KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1 (6015). Free of jamming 1203-1210
and subsequently till jamming started up between 1241-1248; news
in Korean; ending each item with "K B S News" in English; some brief
sound bites in English; fair-good.

Voice of Freedom (6135). No jamming 1151-1200 and subsequently
till jamming started up between 1241-1248; fair-good.

UNID. 6250, perhaps Echo of Unification (via DPRK); at 1241; two
equally strong stations here; one clearly being VOH (// 3985, et al.).
UNID not noted earlier, so *1230 per Aoki? No DPRK jamming here
till sometime between 1241-1248.

Thanks to feedback from Dave Valko and Hiroyuki Komatsubara,
who were also hearing this, but they had faint audio that indicated
Mongolia and not India. Mongolia not on their other frequency of

coverage of the Myanmar U18 vs Inter Milan U18, with friendly soccer
match held at YTC Thuwunna Stadium (Yangon); 1221 noted half time
break with filler music, till coverage started up again; seemed to perhaps
be a TV audio feed, as less than full spoken coverage; usual background

List of AIR // stations heard on the eve of Independence Day; Aug 14, 
from 1330+ UTC; intro in English and Hindi; National Anthem,
which is rarely heard on SW, except for these special occasions;
president of India addressed the nation; first in Hindi and then
repeated again in English, which started at 1351; longer than
usual speech; for the past five years was first given in English,
then followed again in Hindi. The last time in Hindi, then English
was in 2011. Independence Day is tomorrow, the 15th.

4760 AIR Leh - not heard.
4760 AIR Port Blair - only an open carrier; no audio.
4800 AIR Hyderabad - only CNR1 heard.
4810 AIR Bhopal - heard.
4835 AIR Gangtok - heard with definite audio.
4895 AIR Kurseong - not on the air, nor was Mongolia present.
4910 AIR Jaipur - mostly open carrier and maybe faint audio?
4920 AIR Chennai - heard, but unusually weak underneath Tibet.
4950 AIR Radio Kashmir, Srinagar - heard with definite audio.
4970 AIR Shillong - heard.
5010 AIR Thiruvananthapuram - heard, but very weak audio.
5040 AIR Jeypore - heard; note audio link below.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1200-1201*,
Aug 20. ToH ends their regular programming; start of their EZL
filler music till suddenly off. No BBS/Bhutan today.

6155, CNR2/China Business Radio, 1212-1232, Aug 20. The often
heard, popular variety show "Haiyang Live"; mostly comedy with a
lot of canned laughter, but also pop songs; in Chinese, except for a
brief segment in English ("As many of you prepare to take the National
Higher Education Entrance Examination, I wish you success in your
endeavors . . . Whether you aim to be a doctor, teacher, scientist,
musician, engineer or writer . . . You are the next generation of
leaders for generations to come."); // 6065 // 7315.

The examination is given throughout China to high school students to
determine which university they can attend. A tremendous amount of
pressure on the students to do well, as it greatly affects their future.
Will always remember some years ago, I was in Shanghai during the
day of the exam. Needed to take a taxi someplace, which are normally
very easy to find, as there are so many of them in the city, but that day
all the taxis were occupied by students. Later found out that almost all
the taxis in the city had been reserved to take students to the exam.

7148-USB (ex: 7118-USB), VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station), on
Aug 20, heard at 1138, 1152, 1241 and 1259, with numbers in Chinese;
fair reception. Seems they now like the ham band!

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1250, Aug 20. The usual Sunday "Country
Roads" C&W music show with DJ in English; Kenny Rogers, "You
Decorated my Life," etc.

INDIA/MONGOLIA[non-log]. 4895, on Aug 20, at 1155 and subsequent
checking, found frequency free of either Mongolian Radio 2 nor AIR
Kurseong. The reactivation of Mongolia here was indeed very brief!

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio, at 1308, on Aug 20, found a greatly
improved reception of this station, that until today had recently been QRMed

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1124-1151*,
Aug 27. Sunday religious songs till 1130, when switched
over to pop hit songs (Linda Ronstadt - "When Will I Be
Loved," etc.); DJ in Pidgin; suddenly off at 1151*, leaving
a weak RRI in the clear.

On Aug 26, heard 1103-1203*; usual DJ in Pidgin ("Saturday
night . . last hour," etc.); playing pop Pacific Islands songs;
1154 SA with frequencies; entertaining reception, as was
stronger than normal and very light RRI QRM.

NBC Bougainville also heard Aug 25, at 1154; pop song Eric
Carmen - "Hungry Eyes"; suddenly off 1201*.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260), on Aug 26, with cut off at 1216*.

CHINA. 7148-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station),
on Aug 27; heard at 0937, 1033, 1122 & 1203, with numbers
in Chinese; fair reception. Also // 7564-LSB at 0937, 1033,
but off the air at 1122 & 1203.

7345-USB, V26, 1217, Aug 26. Numbers in Chinese; mixing
with equally strong CRI.

CHINA[and non-log]. 6065 & 6155, CNR2, Aug 27 at 1259+,
found both frequencies silent; whereas CNR2 was on the air
7265 // 7315.

FIJI[non-log]. 558, Radio Fiji One. Normally I daily hear
some type of signal from them, but Aug 27 had no trace of
any carrier here. Just very poor propagation or what?

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, on Aug 25,
26 & 27, 0941+. Continuing on this new frequency with
no hint of any North Korea jamming yet; very strong signal.

Aug 27, noted former VOF frequencies 6135 (still being
jammed), 5920 clear, 5940 clear and 6020 with Vietnam.

MONGOLIA. 4895, Mongolian Radio 2 (suspected), 1235
through subsequent checking till 1322, Aug 26. Only a definite
open carrier; never any modulation/audio; have been monitoring
here daily since their recent very brief reactivation. Also open
carrier on Aug 27; noted at 1051, 1211 & 1252; again with no
audio at all detected. Would like to think this is them, but will
take someone hearing some audio to confirm this!

On Aug 25, Hiroyuki Komatsubara reported "-0915- 4895kHz
UNID carrier, heavy QRM from 4885kHz," but when I checked
at 1130, the carrier was off. Worth keeping an eye on this
frequency.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0948-1030,
Aug 27. Usual SA at 0950 and series of ads; pop music;
1000 with IS (Jew's harp - khomus) and time pips; long
segment of on-air phone calls after the news; fair reception
as CNR1 doesn't sign on till about 1101. 7295 remains
silent. Guess I enjoy this so much as it is the only Russian
station that I hear now!

Re: "Ozy Radio" testing on 5045 kHz. Ron Howard - Aug 28, 2017 16:09 UTC No.2505
AUSTRALIA. 5045, "Ozy Radio." It was back on Jul 6,
2011, that I last heard Craig Allen's low powered "Ozy
Radio" on 5050. In 2015, Craig informed me "We will
be back soon on 5045 kHz. with more power, 1kw. Ozy
Radio." Has actually happened Aug 28. Dave Kernick,
et al., have confirmed the SA today for this test transmission.
Thanks fellows!

Thanks also to an emailed alert from Bruce Churchill, drove
to the beach and at 0927 heard a very weak open carrier.
Reception of any audio not possible here till my local sunrise,
which was at 1336 UTC. My most distinctive details were at
1334 & 1419, with hearing the unmistakable "Waltzing Matilda,"
as a brief instrumental. Ozy Radio IS? Noted a number of songs,
but not strong enough to be able to SA them. 1402-1411 OM &
YL with what seemed to be the news; 1411 into EZL older hit
songs, but again too weak to SA.

Am not disappointed by this poor reception today, as BBR
(China) on 5050 is normally well heard by me, but today
was extremely poor (unusable), which is rare. Believe
propagation today was rather unique, so on a day with
normal propagation, Ozy Radio could be just fine.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (11) Ron Howard - Aug 30, 2017 22:17 UTC No.2511

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio (presumed). Aug 30 had
much better overall propagation than my 28th reception,
but with that BBR (China) on 5050 was heard with a
decent signal; some of the BBR audio spilled over to
5045, so I had to listen in LSB.

Just like Glenn Hauser, I also noted the assumed utility signal
at 1205, on 5045.8, along with 5045 open carrier, but later
utility was not heard.

At my local sunrise (1337), thought I would start to catch
some audio here, as I did on 28th, but not so; no audio
checking through 1406; just an open carrier today, even
with the better propagation. Completely different reception
than on the 28th, when I had definite audio. Seems every
day will have different reception here. Can only hope Craig
will increase the power in the future.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1134-1138*, on
Aug 30. Above average reception (almost fair); pop songs,
with DJ in Pidgin. After suddenly going off, frequency was
clear (RRI Palangkaraya was very late signing on today!).

BTW - NBC Madang (3260), on Aug 30, cut off at 1149*. So
both these NBC stations cut off earlier than normal. NBC on
3275 & 3365 still remain silent.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), Aug 30,
noted cut off at 1201*. They never give a closing SA, but
instead usually give the last SA at about 1131; still with the
nice English & Chinese SA - "S W liu(6) ling(0) san(3) wu(5).
Yunnan Radio and Television International, the Voice Shangri-
la". No BBS/Bhutan here today.

INDONESIA. Aug 30, with a rare occurrence! For a period
of time there were no Indonesian stations on SW. None at all.

3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya. After NBC Bougainville cut
off at 1138*, no hint of RRI; subsequently still off the air, but
by 1232 heard them with fair reception; so came on the air
sometime between 1227-1232; at 1237 ended the Jakarta
news relay, in Bahasa Indonesia, with patriotic/national song
泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・(should be played throughout the
month of August); series of nice SAs for both "Pro Satu RRI
Palangkaraya" and the full "Pro Satu Radio Republik
Indonesia Palangkaraya"; many promos for "audio on
demand . . . audio streaming . . download," for RRI stations;
1400 several RRI Palangkaraya jingles; into their local news;
still with fair reception.

9524.95, VOI, off the air; checked 1215-1347.

KOREA SOUTH. 1566, HLAZ (Far Eastern Broadcasting
Company, FEBC), 1245, Aug 30. Best reception in USB; poor,
but clearly in Japanese (matches schedule); religious organ
music; some days only have an open carrier here.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1154, Aug 30. Start of
the usual "Evening Devotional" Christian spot in English; SA
in English, but cut off at 1159* before SA completed.

Amano-san - Thank you very much for the great Voice of Freedom info! Ron

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1153-1157*,
Aug 31. Pop song (Faith Hill - "Piece Of My Heart") till
suddenly cut off. RRI Palangkaraya off the air today,
checking 1157-1352.

BTW - NBC Madang, 3260, on Aug 31, cut off at 1204*,
while playing Elton John's song Lady Diana - Candle in the
wind (Goodbye England's rose).

INDIA. 4810 (AIR Bhopal) // 5010 (AIR Thiruvananthapuram)
// 5040 (AIR Jeypore), at 1238, on Aug 31; special live coverage
of the India vs Sri Lanka cricket match held at Colombo; many
ads; coverage in English and Hindi; at 1345 not // any more.
4920 (AIR Chennai) was never //.

INDONESIA[non-log]. Aug 31, noted Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya
(3325) and Voice of Indonesia (9524.95) both off the air from 1157
to 1352.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1159*, Aug 31. Cut off as
if on a timer, in the middle of the "Evening Devotional"; so today
off without SA or National Anthem.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (11) Ron Howard - Sep 01, 2017 19:31 UTC No.2515
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1159-1201*,
Sept 1. Montage of songs with several "NBC Bougainville"
SAs; 1200 another SA with frequencies; start of a promo in
English for "NBC Radio", but cut off before it finished. After
closing, RRI Palangkaraya in the clear with the Jakarta
news relay, so back on the air again.

CHINA. new schedule for Voice of Strait. Sept 1 heard
4900 & 4940 (different programs) at 1206, so tentatively:

6115 kHz. at 1200* (ex 1300*) switches to 4900 kHz. and
9505 kHz. at 1200* (ex 1300*) switches to 4940 kHz.

Needs to be actually observed to confirm.

6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1123-1145, Sept 1.
Pop song (Berlin - "Take My Breath Away"); 1133 with clear
"Yunnan Radio and Television International, the Voice Shangri-
la"; shortly after 1123 sounded like two stations here; other one
assumed to be BBS/Bhutan, but unable to tell when it went off
the air.

INDONESIA[and non-log]. Sept 1, with RRI Palangkaraya
(3325) back on the air after being silent for the Jakarta news at
1201 for the past two days. While Voice of Indonesia (9524.95)
continues silent at 1115+.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, Sept 1, with just a quick
check to confirm another day with sudden 1159* cut off. Is now
the consistent time for closing down.

Re: Ozy Radio Ron Howard - Sep 02, 2017 15:13 UTC No.2517
AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1132-1156, Sept 2.
Best reception so far! EZL pop songs; just a little bit
too weak to be able to SA them; fortunately the most
distinctive feature of the broadcast is the old Radio
Australia's "Waltzing Matilda" and that came through
loud and clear (my audio clip - http://goo.gl/jai54P),
which was heard at 1156, as well as at 1142, then
followed by "Ozy Radio" SA and email address (only
able to make out bits & pieces of announcement). After
1156, was unable to again hear any audio (none at all).
So seemed to just be a brief spot with unusually good
propagation?

Very pleased to be able to catch so nice a reception of the
Ozy Radio IS. Certainly makes it much easier for us listeners
in North America to positively SA this low powered station.

DJ in Pidgin; mix of pop, C&W and religious (Christian)
songs; Lionel Richie - "Jesus Is Love," Dolly Parton -
"When You Think About Love," Don Williams - "Shot Full
Of Love," etc.; many local time checks ("19 past 10"),
which would set it apart from local times given by NBC
Madang (PNG) on 3260, which happens to be one hour
behind Bougainville; decent reception, as very light QRM
from RRI Palangkaraya today.

BTW - Voice of Indonesia remains silent for yet another day

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC. Sept 3 anomaly; they kept

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom. Sept 4, what
happened here? Seemed as if VOF had strong carrier, but no
audio at all; also here was N. Korea jamming with pulsating
noise for the very first time since VOF moved to this frequency;
same type of jamming as formerly heard on 5920 when VOF
was there.

On former VOF frequencies: 6135, still being jammed with
strong white noise; 5920 clear; 5940 clear; 6020 with weak
Vietnam, but all without VOF.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1133, Sept 6.
Nice to hear a singing version of "Waltzing Matilda" here;
cut off at 1200*, revealing RRI Palangkaraya.

Sept 7, was a bad day here, with both NBC and RRI being
about equal strength, causing a mess; NBC cut off at 1203*,
leaving RRI in the clear. Normally NBC is considerably
stronger, making their station more listenable.

INDONESIA. 3325, RRI Palangkaraya. As August is
over, they are no longer playing the patriotic/national song
泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・to close the 1200 Jakarta news
relay.

Instead on Sept 6, at 1225, ended the news with the patriotic
song "Garuda Pancasila" (aka: "Mars Pancasila"), which was
composed by Sudharnoto, with lyrics about the loyalty of all
Indonesian people to Pancasila as the only ideology or
philosophy of the Indonesian nation.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom (ex: 6045).
After going three days without any VOF, they have
returned to this former frequency on Sept 7. Noted at
1119, plus subsequent checks. Thanks go to Hiroyuki
Komatsubara, who confirmed he was also hearing them
today at 0930.

On former VOF frequencies: 6135, still being jammed with
strong white noise; 5940 clear; 6020 with weak Vietnam and
6045 with pulsating noise jamming that has been here now
for four days (causing considerable QRM for Tibet on 6050).

MONGOLIA. 4895, Mongolian Radio 2. Has been on the
air here very erratically; back again Sept 7, with decent level
carrier, but am unable to catch any audio; 1131 and subsquent
checking. Thanks to Hiroyuki Komatsubara for reporting
"-1057- 4895kHz MONGOLIA Golden Radio, (Radio 2)."

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Wednesday (Sept 6),
heard repeat of the Monday program of "Say It In English" that
dealt with the "train to Manchester"; started later than the
Monday show, as it ended at 1247, instead of ending at 1232.

So I can confirm the English language lessons are only on
Monday and Wednesday!

Thank you for your information, Hiroyuki and Ron-san.
I also confirmed that VOF shifted from 6045 kHz to 5920 kHz.
There is no jammed on 5920 kHz from North Korea.

I confirmed the following at 5920 kHz.

6125, CNR1, 1209-1252+, Sept 8. Preempted regular programs
to provide live coverage of the closing ceremony of 13th National
Games of China, held in northeastern China (Tianjin); these
games started Aug 27; speeches and musical performers.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom (ex: 6045). Sept 8

EMBASSY OF THE STATE OF ERITREA
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dimtsi Hafash: (Voice of the Broad Masses) is a state owned media that
broadcasts from the capital Asmara. This national radio service begun
under the liberation front in 1979. The high illiteracy rate among
Eritreans, particularly in rural areas, make this medium the most
effective to educate and inform the general public. Its correspondents
are stationed throughout the country. With a transmission power of 100
kilowatts, Dimtsi Hafash covers all Eritrea and it also available via
satellite. It broadcasts in nine Eritrean ethnic languages, (Tigrinya,
Arabic, Tigre, Kunama, Saho, Afar, Bilen, Hedareb and Nara), Amharic,
Oromo and Somali languages and covers a wide range of subjects targeted
at general and specific audiences. Children and youth, for example,
broadcast their own shows each week.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://www.eritrean-embassy.se/press-release/media/



There are three radio stations in Eritrea.

Radio Bana is an educational radio broadcast in five languages.

CHINA. 4990, PBS Hunan, back on the air again on May 2, after 
being silent for a while; noted at 1101.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1315-1335, May 2. Much stronger
modulation than normal; almost fair; financial ad; 1318-1335 non-
stop chanting (no music); usual SA/ID in English; 典his is the North
Eastern Service of All India Radio broadcasting from Shillong on
shortwave 60.26 meters, corresponding to 4,970 kilohertz and an
additional FM 100.1 megahertz." My local sunrise at 1312 UT.

May 3, heard with amazingly good audio level; 1230 EZL jazz filler
music till start of the news from Delhi in English at 1232, already in
progress, with item about the supreme court ruling today; stock
market info and sports news. Great to have them with such good
modulation again!

INDONESIA. 4869.9, Pro 1 RRI Wamena [non-log], as of May 2,
continues silent.

9524.95, VOI, 1310, April 28. In English with promo for this years
quiz; "commentary"; "Today in History" (this date in 1949 Chairil
Anwar, Indonesian poet, died; this date 2001, Dennis Tito became
first paying [$20M] passenger to go into outer space); fairly readable.

April 30, VOI with usual language assignments, but out of syn with
normal timing; English already started by 1248, instead of 1300. Next
day back to normal.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, *1120, May 2. Suddenly on;
fair; in vernacular.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1137-1203*, April 30
(Sunday). In Pidgin/Tok Pisin with religious (Christian) program of
mostly songs; 1201 switched to different audio feed (TV?), to catch
the closing announcement in English for what sounded like a religious
show ("on every Sunday"); cut off before the start of the normal Sunday
"Island Praise" program; reception well above the norm.

[non-log]. 7324.95, Wantok Radio Light, 1402, May 1. Continuing
with their long absence. Off for about a year now? A clear frequency
at this time period.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, with no extended broadcast on
April 28 & 29; off about 1202*.

April 30 (Sunday), with extended broadcast of religious (Christian) songs
in English till 1244*, assume Wantok FM relay, but no SA/IDs as such.

May 1, at 1200 ended NA; dead air (open carrier) till 1203 start of assume
Wantok FM relay, but the brief, frequent announcements between every 2-3
pop songs never mentioned Wantok; seemed to be a new format for these
brief announcements; the IDs were certainly not anything like the usual
often heard Wantok FM SA/IDs; 1332*.

May 2, another extended broadcast; after NA, at 1202, a seamless
switch over to SIBC format programming of pop songs in English
("I Only Want To Be With You," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Take My
Breath Away," "Uptown Girl," "Old Time Rock n Roll," etc.); 1202-1308,
with 20 straight non-stop songs without even one announcement or SA/ID;
mostly fair. With these extended broadcasts, is now one of my favorite
stations to listen to!

May 3, no extended broadcast.

VANUATU. 7259.96, R. Vanuatu, 0604, May 1. In vernacular; clear
SA/ID at 0617.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1040-1101, May 4.
Chatting on the phone in assume Yakut; brief English: "We are
on the air"; 1056 SA/ID ("Radio Sakha") and ads in Russian; 1100
usual IS with Jew's harp (khomus); 3 time pips and into the
news till covered at 1101 by strong CNR1 (China) sign on.

They broadcast in Russian, Yakut and Evenki languages.
7295 remains unheard. Thanks to feedback from Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan), on May 3: "7295kHz RUSSIA Radio
Sakha, still off air," with "7345kHz RUSSIA Radio Sakha,
strong signal," both at 1057.

In the past they always gave their SA/ID religiously at
xx:50, but recently noted more often than not about
xx:55-xx:57.

INDIA. 4870.25, AIR (Delhi-Kingsway), on May 8, with open
carrier at 1322; started audio at 1326 with subcontinent music/
singing (not AIR IS); weak; scheduled to be in Nepali; RRI
Wamena (Indonesia) continues their month+ long silence,
which was last heard on 4869.88.

[non-log] 4895, AIR Kurseong, noted off the air both May 7 & 8.

4970, AIR Shillong, on May 8, with another day of strong audio,
but QRM from OTH radar (4920-4975); 1239 pop music show
with DJ in English talking about the bands/singers; 1315 ended
show with usual local ID.

[non-log] 5050, AIR Aizawl, as of May 8, has not been heard for
a while now.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1207*, May 8. Suddenly
off after the news in English and promo; poor.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands (presumed), 1208 to past 1318, May 8.
Only hearing an open carrier here; has not been heard for quite a while.
Dave Valko was also tentatively hearing them today at 1315, via remote
web receiver in Collie, Australia. He did have some weak audio, with
language and format sounding right to be NBC.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (10) Ron Howard - May 09, 2017 17:59 UTC No.2226
ANDAMAN & NICOBAR ISLANDS. 4760, AIR Port Blair (presumed).
Nicely above threshold level audio 1205, on May 9, with sub-continent
music/singing. Recently has been doing fairly well.

Wolfie's May 9 log:
"4759.999 IND AIR - probably Port Blair location, S=9+5dB signal
noted in Delhi India, at 1508, and male in Hindi at 1522 UT."

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1146-1201*, May 9.
A few brief announcements in Chinese; classical waltz music (Johann
Strauss II - An der sch&#246;nen blauen Donau, Op. 314 [aka: "The Blue
Danube Waltz"], etc.); much stronger signal than usual. Last year often
heard BBS (Bhutan) here till after 1200, but they have not been heard
for a while now, so assume with an earlier sign off time now?

EAST TURKISTAN[non-log]. 4850, 4980 and 5060, PBS Xinjiang,
on May 9, made their seasonal change away from these frequencies;
now these three frequencies are in the clear.

INDIA. 4895 [non-log], AIR Kurseong, off the air again May 9.

4970, AIR Shillong, on May 9, with yet another day of strong audio;
1230 news feed in English from Delhi. My five minute news audio
at http://goo.gl/JZf8WY . Fairly readable, which is a very nice change
from their past low modulation.

Wolfie's reception: "4970.017 IND AIR Shillong, S=9+20dB, female
presenter in progress at 1410 and 1425 UT on May 9."

RE: my "non-log" of AIR Aizawl: thanks to Wolfie, who provided this
info on May 9: "5050even IND AIR Aizawl, Mizoram, rather tiny signal
in Delhi remote SDR. S=7-8 at 1419 UT. "

So I am not hearing them underneath a strong Guangxi Beibu Bay
Radio (China). In the past I had no problem hearing AIR mixing with
BBR, so Aizawl must have come down significantly in power?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA[non-log]. 3260, NBC Madang and 3275,
NBC Southern Highlands both silent on May 9, at 1202; unlike
yesterdays receptions; today with unique conditions, as the lower
powered Korean station on 3220 was unusually strong today.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (presumed), 1240, May 9, during a brief
check here, was able to hear an announcer, so just above threshold
level audio; is rare that this gets up to this level, so an outstanding day
for subcontinent reception.

Wolfie's reception: "4835even IND AIR Gangtok, Sikkim, smooth sweet
music singer, S=8-9 fair 0441 UT on May 9."

Hi, XXX. I noticed you had changed your nickname. :)
Since Yesterday, Certain Korean DXer has checked 97.0 MHz, one of the frequencies of
Echo of Unification insists North Korea has been operating that at 'independent non-government
organization' is transmitting KCBS, which is known as a national broadcast. We didn't find
out what they want by sending KCBS yet. Now, 97.0 MHz on the night time has been received for
2 hours, from 21:30 to 23:30 like the time of Echo of Unification, so we guess it may be just
transmitting test. today I also turned 89.4 and 97.8 MHz, but they were EOH.

NOTE
89.4, 97.8 MHz: Echo of Unification
97.0 MHz: KCBS (We guess it is the test signal of EOH now.)

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (10) Kowalski - May 13, 2017 13:36 UTC No.2235
*NOTE

97.0 MHz changed into Echo of Unification again while it is sending KCBS time signal.

KOREA SOUTH. On a new frequency of 5920, Voice of Freedom
(clandestine) (presumed), ex: 6135. Thanks to the timely tip posted
to WRTH Facebook page by Mauno Ritola. May 15, seemed to sign
on about 1130(?), checked this new frequency on and off after 1107;
first noted at 1137; in Korean and playing easy listening pop songs;
an abbreviated transmission of about an hour; they went off close to
1238* and not heard after that. Ex: 6135, heard only white noise
jamming there as usual.

The format certainly seemed correct for VOF; clearly not on their
normal 6135 (under the white noise). My audio http://goo.gl/uCblFP

Per Hiroshi's web site http://hiroshi.mediacat-blog.jp/e122168.html

registered with the HFCC. Thanks very much to Chulsu at

Re: Voice of Freedom on new 6020 kHz. Ron Howard - May 16, 2017 15:47 UTC No.2245
KOREA SOUTH. On a new frequency of 6020, Voice of Freedom
(clandestine) (presumed). May 16, at 1013, tuned in to hear
this new frequency; clearly not Vietnam (VOV4), which is also
on this frequency; suddenly off at 1017*; VOF's usual 6135,
only had the normal white noise jamming and the other new VOF
frequency that was heard yesterday on 5920, was silent all of
today.

At 1018, found VOF had switched to 6135, underneath the normal
white noise jamming; usual format of being in Korean and playing
EZL songs; still there at last check of 1240, with 5920 silent
and a weak VOV4 on 6020.

Seems therefore that they are randomly testing their two new frequencies
(5920 & 6020), as well as using their normal 6135. Certainly no pattern
yet established as to their testing schedule

Wonderful to hear this station again, after a considerable
absence. Not many SA/IDs given, but heard several "NBC
Bougainville" SA/IDs at 1022 and sign off announcement at
1156; segments in English and Pidgin/Tok Pisin. Mostly poor,
with heavy QRN (static). Highlights:

0904: New in English.

1011-1022: Sound bites from a series of speeches.

1022-1101: Pop songs.

1101-1111: News preempted by announcer (monologue).

1111: Pop songs; John Waite - "Missing You" (I ainエt missing you

1200*: Suddenly off.

My unedited audio of sign off announcement and pop song till cut off,

the OM with monologue. Needs more monitoring now that it might

Re: Thazin Radio (Myanmar) Ron Howard - May 25, 2017 16:13 UTC No.2297
MYANMAR. 6165, Thazin Radio via Pyin Oo Lwin. As has recently
been reported (thanks to Ivo Ivanov), CNR6 is currently off the air
here, leaving the frequency clear for Myanmar, which was normally
blocked by China; 1416, on May 25, heard in vernacular and playing
EZL songs; 1430 usual theme music intro to their English segment
of mostly playing pop songs; clearly in English, but mostly unreadable;
poor reception, but only one station here now.

Have to try to also remember to check on 7345 kHz., as CNR1 is
now off the air there, which should leave Thazin Radio with a much
better chance of being heard before 1200 (CRI signs on then), so
only Radio Sakha (Russia) QRM to contend with.

Re: Ramadan 2017 Ron Howard - May 26, 2017 03:00 UTC No.2298

On May 25, I was listening first to a very strong signal from Wai FM
(Malaysia), on 11665, at 1244 and heard an elegant reciting from
the Qur'an by a woman, which is extremely rare to hear on SW.
More than 99% of the time only done by men. Thought perhaps
something special was going on.

Later at 1255, tuned to Sarawak FM (Malaysia), on 9835, at 1255,
also with good reception, to hear a talk about Ramadan, which sent
me to the web to find out if we are close to the start of this yearly event.

Yes, I found that "Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, has announced
that the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan will begin on Saturday, state
media said on Thursday." So this coming weekend will in fact be the
start of Ramadan.

It is the time of year to now check SW for renewed activity from Islamic
countries; e.g. Indonesia, which in past years did reactivate dormant
stations, as well as other stations/countries running special programs.
Expect to hear a lot more reciting from the Qur'an during my morning
band scans.

BTW - In the past, the Monday & Thursday relay of Limbang FM, via Wai
FM, on 11665, during 1315-1400 UT, always had just SA/IDs for "Limbang FM,"
but this Thursday (May 25) noted their new SA/ID being used many times -
"Wai FM, Limbang." My audio at http://goo.gl/4lmnGd .

KOREA SOUTH. On May 26:

3985, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1144; jammed as usual with
white noise.

4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1147; QRM from strong OTH
radar (4845-4960); checked again at 1329 to find very strong VOH,
with no QRM at all. Have never heard this frequency jammed by
North Korea! [see 9100]

5920, Voice of Freedom, 1149 till past 1326; in the clear. Not on the
air here on May 25.

5995, Echo of Hope - VOH new frequency, but not used by VOH
today. For the first time jammed by N. Korea with white noise
at 1144. Very wise of New Zealand to leave here, after Glenn
alerted them to the problem!

6003, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1144; jammed as usual with white
noise.

6135, VOF down on 5920, not here, but usual white noise jamming was.

6250, Jammed as usual with white noise; unable to confirm VOH here,
at 1145; jamming too strong.

6348, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1145; jammed as usual with white
noise.

6350, Echo of Hope - VOH new frequency, but not used by VOH today.
White noise jamming is also now here, at 1145.

9100, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1211, good reception (not jammed); in
Korean with the news; 1215 their singing station jingle and nice
"V O H" SA/ID (audio at http://goo.gl/fDeUXm ; very light Sound

air the special activities of Prime Minister Modi, with an address to
the BJP's pan-India festival at Guwahati (Assam) and for the PM's
inauguration of India’s longest bridge, Dhola-Sadiya.

The speech was carried by most of the other AIR regional stations, but
clearly not by AIR Jeypore (5040). Unable to confirm // to 4835 (AIR

I'd not ever received 9100 kHz. 
But it seemed Taereung increased the power of 9100 kHz.
Finally, I could listen to EOH on 9100 kHz on May 27.
And since that day, 4885 and 9100 kHz have been sending contents like other frequencies.
Now all frequencies work from 15:00 to 09:00 for the same time.

North Korea feeling the dangerousness of propaganda has been transmitting Jammings 
not only Echo of Hope but also almost all propaganda including Shiokaze. By May 2017,
Frequencies are some changed among the standard of Short Wave broadcastings, 5 kHz,
even though 6348 kHz is one of the longest frequency keeping with the jamming, of
course, minor alternations such as 2 kHz don't influence on receiving the radio.
Anyway, North Korea also adjusted their jammers following them, and it showed the
fact they have always been monitoring Echo of Hope. Now, the jammers aiming at Echo
of Hope are 3985, 5995, 6003, 6250, 6348 and 9100 kHz, and 4885 and 9100 kHz, which
are new frequencies comparatively, don't have the jammers yet.
-In my blog...

I received EOH's Opening, Ending, and Shortly before the rerun on June 1st, and I
discovered them are changed. Maybe it will mean their test is all done, so their
frequencies will keep.

Annyeonghaseyo! and Konbanwa! Kowalski-san and XYZ-san.

Kowalski-san.
Thank you so much for your quick update on your VOH related blog.
When I check VOH, I always refer to your VOH related blog.

Wow! Certainly 6350 kHz exactly Jamming from North Korea has not appeared.
When receiving with No Sync mode by ICF-SW7600GR, side jamming of 6348 kHz is
worrisome, but it can avoid jamming when it receives with Sync on USB!

By the way, the start and end of the VOH broadcasting is 0600-0000 UTC(1500-0900 KST),
but the latest program of VOH (the base point of the latest program) is from 1500
UTC(0000 KST), isn't it?
I was taught by Chulsu-san about it.

format. For a long time now NBC normally ended about 1200+ by
just suddenly going off the air (pulled the plug), but instead today
at 1203 noted children singing the National Anthem and announcer
in English with what sounded like station SA/ID and frequencies (heard
"kilohertz" mentioned several times); very tough copy; off at 1205*.

The other change today was that they did not go to the usual Port
Moresby audio feed about 1201, for the "NBC News in Brief." In
the past, Bougainville normally started the news, but rarely got all
the way through it before going off the air, but instead today they
did their own sign off format. So today was a major change in their
closing.

In the past, I often heard this sign off format of children singing the
National Anthem on both NBC Madang (3260) and NBC New
Ireland (3905), so was a real treat for me to hear it again, as it
had been over a year since I last heard it.

Today's propagation did not favor RRI Palangkaraya, which was
not a factor at all in hearing NBC.

My poor quality audio at http://goo.gl/xaP33v .

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1212-1228, Jan 3.
Jakarta news relay already in progress, in Bahasa Indonesia;
ending the news at 1228 with patriotic song (too weak to ID song);
clearly // Pro 1 RRI Wamena (4869.88) till 1230. Unable to confirm
// to RRI Ternate, as only an open carrier on 3344.86.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1206-1207*, Jan 3.
Pop song till suddenly off. For a long time now, this has been their
closing format, to just pull the plug, with no formal sign off.

KOREA NORTH[non]. On Jan 11, on 6145, again heard the 
same special Shiokaze programming as heard on Dec 29
and originally recorded Dec 10. Preempted regular Shiokaze
programming. 1331+ with nice segment of easy listening
orchestra music ("Moon River," etc.). I suppose we should
be thankful to N. Korea for not jamming this entertaining
show.

KOREA SOUTH. 9100, Echo of Hope - VOH, briefly heard
at 1403, Jan 11, Very surprised to find them on the air at this
time, as their schedule is supposedly 1800-2400 on this
frequency. Once it was heard (not jammed), went to check
for //; yes, definitely // 4885, which was well heard as usual
and not jammed, while // 3985 // 6003 and // 6348 were all
jammed; news in Korean; when I tuned back to 9100 at 1405,
found they had already gone off the air. A brief test of some
type? Thinking of expanding their schedule?

Re: The death of the Chief Minister of Sarawak Ron Howard - Jan 12, 2017 20:21 UTC No.2049
MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, via Kajang, 1537, Jan 12.
Chief Minister of Sarawak (Tan Sri Adenan Satem) passed
away yesterday; there will be seven days of mourning and
flags will be at half-mast, for this popular leader.

Heard mostly non-stop reciting from the Qur'an, with brief SA/IDs;
noted a recital by a woman, which is extremely rare, so I knew
something very unique was going on; certainly these recitals
are in honor of the late leader; still heard at 1629, with good
reception.

No other Malaysian stations were heard today, which has been
the case recently; no Asyik FM (6050) and no Wai FM (11665).

Re: The death of the Chief Minister of Sarawak Ron Howard - Jan 12, 2017 22:00 UTC No.2050
Thanks very much to Rob Wagner, who posted this to Facebook 
WRTH - "Thanks Ron. None of the usual FM music programming
noted at 2030 to past 2100. Just Qur'an recitations and no IDs
either. Jan 12."

Appreciate the feedback!

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, 1507, Jan 14 (Saturday). English
program "Focus on China"; long item about winter fishing festival
in NE China; a break to play pop song ("Faded - Where Are You
Now"); SA/IDs "You are now listening to Focus on China, in Voice of
Strait Broadcast Station"; fair.

INDIA. 4894.9, AIR Kurseong, 1531, Jan 14. Seemed to be
on low side of their normal 4895.0; New Delhi audio feed of the
news in English

// 4760 AIR Port Blair (ANDAMAN & NICOBAR ISLANDS).

// 4910 AIR Jaipur.

// 4920 AIR Chennai, almost fair with QRM (TIBET - PBS Xizang).

// 4970 AIR Shillong.

// 5010 AIR Thiruvananthapuram.

// 5040 AIR Jeypore.

// 5050 AIR Aizawl, QRM from Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio (CHINA).

// 9380 AIR Aligarh.

5050, AIR Aizawl, 1230, Jan 14. Amazing propagation that
completely blocked out Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio (CHINA)
which normally dominates this frequency; also a rare day
with strong signal from Aizawl; news in English; mostly
readable. Daily I check here, but have never heard
anything like today's reception. Audio from today at
http://goo.gl/ry8d9E . China did indeed fade up here a
little later.

1612-1630*; after China signed off, subcontinent music program
"produced by AIR Shillong," in English; SA/ID 典his came to you from
the North Eastern Service of All India Radio broadcasting from
Shillong"; local Aizawl SA/ID and frequency at sign off.

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1402, Jan 14. Local
news in Bahasa Indonesia; unusually strong signal, but QRN (static)
sounded more like summertime QRN (heavy); 1416 ending news with
the normally played patriotic song ("Bagimu Negeri"); very unique
propagation today strongly favoring RRI & AIR stations.

3344.85, RRI Ternate, 1505*, Jan 14. Off with the usual "Pulau Ambon"
(Island of Ambon)/"Love Ambon"; better than average reception.

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, via Kajang, 1212, Jan 14. Continuing
with mostly Qur'an recitals in honor of the late Chief Minister of
Sarawak; 1300 & 1400 breaks for 10 minutes of news in vernacular;
still on at last check at 1548, still with Qur'an recitals.

Still no other Malaysian stations were heard today, which has been the
case recently; no Asyik FM (6050) and no Wai FM (11665).

TAJIKISTAN. 4790, BBC Uzbek, 1316, Jan 14. Mixing badly with the

(RSA) and I have recently reported their absence. At 0146,
through subsequent checking till 0503, on Jan 18, found
them still silent, with no hint of a carrier.

Update from Bill - Angola back on the air, at 1745, on Jan 18.
Good news!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1134-1202*, Jan 17.
DJ in Pidgin/Tok Pisin played EZL pop songs in English; 1201 start
of the NBC news in English; suddenly off. So today they did not
use their formal sign off format, but went back to business as
usual. RRI Palangkaraya not propagating, so no QRM.

CHINA. 6230, CNR1 jamming, 1231, Jan 17. There was a time
in the past when the PRC jammed almost all of Sound of Hope
programs, on a continual basis, but that is no longer the case.
Now it almost seems rare for them to bother to jam SOH. I daily
check this frequency and it is indeed very rare to hear SOH
jammed here, as it was today, with a very strong signal. Of
course also blocking VMW (Australia Weather West) also on
frequency here. Jan 18, back to normal, with no jamming of SOH.

RUSSIA. 7345 // 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, at 0349, on
Jan 18, with sound of horses neighing, sound of galloping horses
and some Jew's harp (khomus) music; usual SA/ID at 0350, followed
by series of ads.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020. Am no longer hearing any extended
broadcasts here (as of Jan 18), as I had noted late last year;
have been checking many days about 1230, but this year seems
no extended programming past 1200.

9545, SIBC, Jan 18, at 0438; DJ in Pijin playing pop songs and asking
a series of questions; "What is 60% of 300?"; read out list of people
who answered correctly; 0500 ABC news (RA: // 15240 [good] // 15415
[poor] // 17840 [very good]); SIBC suddenly off at 0501*, with RA
continuing.

Maybe after this month, this will be the only place to hear ABC news
on SW?

UNID. 3210-USB, on Jan 18, heard 1253-1256*. Daily I check here for
the return of the low powered Australian; a first for me today was to hear
Russian; thanks very much to Mauno Ritola, for listening to my audio clip
and confirming - "yes, it is Russian, sounds like they are swearing quite a

Could they have reactivated the old mothballed off frequency
transmitter, to fill in while they repair the 5985.00 transmitter?
Just speculating!

Jan 21, heard on about 5985.15, at 1441, in vernacular with on air
phone chat; seemed not nearly as strong as the exact frequency
transmitter; by 1541, very weak signal. Needs more monitoring
to determine what is happening here.

Thanks, Wolfie, for your alert that something different was going
on!

Jan 24, heard SIBC, the Voice of the Nation, with extended 
schedule on 9545; 0500-0530 with ABC news & sports,
followed by RA's "Pacific Beat," with Bruce Hill (info about
2019 referendum to determine Bougainville's independence,
etc.); // RA on 15240, 15415 and 17840; at 0530 no longer //,
went to their own programs; DJ in Pijin playing pop songs
(Tina Turner with "I Don't Wanna Fight," etc.); series of
commercial announcements in English ("Back to school . . .
Telekom," etc.); several "SIBC, the Voice of the Nation" SA/IDs;
after one hour of listening, finally came up to mostly fair
reception; still on the air when tuned out at 0615. So this
extended broadcast was nothing out of the ordinary.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Asyik FM, via Kajang, 1452-1500, Jan 24.
With the usual Tuesday "Bollywood" show of pop songs in Hindi.
Had been off the air for a while.

At 1500, the start of Salam FM, till 1502*, Jan 24. Time pips
(1+1 and mixing with time pips of PBS Xizang [TIBET]); brief SA/ID
("Salam FM"); choral NA (Negaraku ・Lagu Kebangsaan Malaysia);
Islamic programming in vernacular; suddenly off, leaving TIBET
in the clear, with decent reception.

BTW - Now all the SW Malaysian stations are active; 9835 Sarawak
FM and also Wai FM on 11665. Has been a while since all three were
broadcasting at the same time.

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1510, Jan 24. Call-to-prayer
for the Islamic Maghrib prayer, just after sunset; their sunset today
was at 1506 UT (6:06 PM at Hargeisa), while my sunrise was at
1515 UT, so good greyline reception.

SUDAN. 9505, Voice of Africa, *1605, Jan 24. My three receptions
here have all been with different sign on times; today on with carrier
at decent level, but no audio; totally unlike yesterdays reception that
had good audio level for their clear French programming; today by
1621 had the impression there was some very faint audio, but so far
down within the open carrier that I could not guess at the language.

TAIWAN. 9100, Sound of Hope, 1445, Jan 24. Poor; not jammed;
// SOH on 6230 (also unjammed); in Chinese; clearly not Echo of
Hope - VOH, as it was not in Korean and not // 4885. As Glenn has

Re: Japan - low powered JG2XA HF-Doppler (HFD) Project Ron Howard - Jan 25, 2017 16:13 UTC No.2073
Have not checked on JG2XA for a long time, but Jan 25 could
not help but notice that one of their frequencies was clearly off
the air, that was 5006. At 1412 was in fact hearing CW on 8006,
but 5006 had no signal at all.

Last year I consistently heard a format of CW during a portion of
every minute, but not so today. Now there are many minutes (5?)
between their CW transmissions, with just an open carrier (dead
air) between the CW. A major change.

somewhat distorted.

Jan 31, at 1312, in English, with weather conditions at different
observatories around the country; providing wind direction, wind
speed in meters per second, air pressure in hectopascals and
temperature in Celsius; they have other segments in other
languages.

THAILAND. 8743-USB, Bangkok Meteorological Radio, 1341,
Jan 31. In English; marine weather for shipping; ending with their
address: "Telecommunication and Information Technology Bureau,
4353 Sukhumvit Road, Bangna District, Bangkok, Thailand 10260";
1342 played their IS; most days have fair reception; they have other
segments in other languages.

VIETNAM. 7906-USB // 8294-USB, Ho Chi Minh Radio Coast
Station, *1305-1310*, Jan 31. Starts and ends with the usual tones;
in Vietnamese; starts with ID and then marine conditions; both fair.
Has been a considerable amount of time since I last heard their
distress announcements in English, so assume there have been
no marine emergencies recently. Ho Chi Minh Radio is the most
powerful coastal station, so is usually well heard. Operated by
VISHIPEL (Vietnam Maritime Communications and Electronics

Feb 14. After being off the air here for a month (or more?),
they are back; best in USB due to AIR on 5010.0; respectable
signal; about the best reception I have had here; some type of

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (9) Ron Howard - Feb 18, 2017 23:19 UTC No.2142
AUSTRALIA. 3210, test of Unique Radio on Feb 18, at 1300,
seemed that I was hearing a JBA open carrier that was not there
minutes earlier; well below threshold level; totally unusable;
subsequent checking through 1450 had extreme challenge to
even tell for sure if the open carrier was still there or not. My
conclusion is that this will probably be mostly unusable for us
in the States.

Seemed today was not an issue with propagation, as most days
Korea, on 3219.9 (5 kW), is just an open carrier, but today had
definite singing at 1451, so generally good propagation and
Korea on 3320 (100 kW) had the usual good reception.

CHINA. 4900, VOS (Minnan language service), still remains
here on Feb 18, at 1456, with fair reception. Hard to tell if this will
turn out to be just a temporary move from ex: 6115?

4940, Voice of Strait, 1500-1530, Feb 18. Saturday only English
program "Focus on China"; a filler (anomaly) program; not their
standard news format at all; audio from the CCTV documentary
"A Bite of China," segment "Inspiration for Change," about making
tofu, rice wine and soy sauce; one continuous announcer (native
speaker of English); no breaks for IDs; 1530 SA/ID in English - "This
is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio"; mostly readable.

Believe some of the VOS staff must still be out on holiday, or would
assume they would have had their normal Saturday news format.

4990, PBS Hunan, 1402, Feb 17. Better than normal reception; "ni
hao," the standard Chinese phone greeting; many on air calls.

9575, CNR1 echo jamming of AIR, via Bengaluru, in Tibetan; Feb 17,
at 1247; scheduled 1215-1330.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1538, Feb 18. Segment in
English; "the weather" (outlook for the next two days); "End of the
news from Myanmar Radio"; 1540-1555 with the Saturday program
天oice of ASEAN, Beyond Boundaries"; seemed to be produced by
PBS (Philippines), as the announcer was Edward Santos, who I have
heard many times over Radio Pilipinas, talking about relationships
between Malaysia and the Philippines; 1556 "Welcome to our program,
ASEAN News"; item about Cambodia, etc.; covered at 1600 by China
(CRI); mostly readable.

It will be recalled that Myanmar and the Philippines signed a Memo of
Understanding (http://210.5.104.56/treaty/scanneddocs/616.pdf).

BTW - 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of
ASEAN.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, 1457-1515, Feb 17. Nicely above
threshold level audio; at most times able to make out the language
used; 1457-1512 alternating announcers in Hindi; 1512 the usual
tone to start the New Delhi audio feed, with commercial announcements
in Hindi, till news in Hindi at 1515. Certainly one of their better days.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC. In Dec, noted many days with
extended broadcasting post-1200*, but in Jan, did not hear any and
now in Feb am again hearing some, but certainly not on a daily basis.

Feb 18, tuned in at 1303 to hear SIBC with extended airing of non-stop
pop songs ("My Boyfriend's Back," etc.); no SA/IDs heard, so clearly not a
Wantok FM relay; 1314 audio ended and went to dead air (open carrier),
which was still on at 1608. Very unfortunate that they ended the audio
early, while still keeping the transmitter on for many hours after that. Why
not just keep the audio going?

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC, 1603, Feb 18. Via long path; mixing with
Myanmar(?); China (CRI) had already signed off; in vernacular; at times
almost fair.

INDIA. 6030, AIR Delhi (Kingsway - 250 kW), 1311, Feb 21. Unique
propagation here at this time preiod, as normally would have CNR1
mixing with Calgary (CFVP), not AIR; subcontinent music and
announcer in Hindi; underneath China.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, on Feb 21, with unusually good
propagation; the best reception I have had here since ABC went
silent; 1508 with subcontinent music; 1512 switch over to audio feed
from New Delhi, starting with tone; singing ads in Hindi; 1515 tone
before news in Hindi. My audio at http://goo.gl/BDcirm .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, via SIBC. Yes, Feb 21,
with yet another day of a long, extended broadcast; 1244, till past 1518;
strong signal during unique propagation; good reception at times; pop
songs (Bette Midler - "From a Distance [God Is Watching Us]," etc.);
short SA/IDs - "Listen non-stop, non-stop, 96.3," "This is Wantok FM 96.3.
Good times, great music" and "Listen to the hottest sounds . . . with the
hottest DJs, 96.3."

TAJIKISTAN. 4790, BBC Uzbek, 1302 and 1330* (almost 1331), Feb 21.
Poor, but about the best reception I have had here; good propagation, but
the usual heavy CODAR QRM; CNR1 jamming extremely faint; a long radio
drama; 1330 BBC SA/ID and pips. Not often I can actually make out the SA/ID.

INDONESIA. 4869.9, Pro 1 RRI Wamena, as it's Thursday (Feb 23),
time to check for "Kang Guru Indonesia." Yes, at 1239 the first "KGI" ID
and intro in Bahasa Indonesia, then on to English; KGI is "carried on
over 200 stations"; played a few pop songs; segment about rhyming
words; "Find a word that rhymes with soldier? . . . shoulder"; segment
"Good neighbors make good friends," about the importance of using
"Thank you and please" in Australia & Indonesia; about "cultural
differences"; better reception than usual, but still less than semi-
readable.

BTW - RRI Ternate (3344.87) not hear on Feb 23.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 5935, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze via Yamata (Japan),
1330, with Thursday (Feb 23) English. Intro to the repeated half hour show
that just aired; N. Korean jamming; both totally blocking reception of Tibet
(PBS Xizang).

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1415, Feb 23. Daily
heard with good reception and never jammed by N. Korea, as their
other frequencies are; as usual at 15 minutes after the hour, strong
"V O H" SA/ID.

6135, Voice of Freedom (clandestine). Normally blocked by strong white
noise jamming from N. Korea, but Feb 23, found VOF cutting through
the jamming fairly well at 1349, with a radio drama in Korean; so todays
propagation favored the south rather than the north. BTW - the KBS
station on 6015, was also well heard through the white noise jamming.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Salam FM, 1503, Feb 22. Islamic programming
(reciting from the Qur'an, etc.); in vernacular; many singing IDs; 1518
SA/ID with "shortwave" and "FM" frequencies; still on the air at 1524; fair-
good, with light QRM from Tibet.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Feb 22 (Wednesday), at
1545, with "VOA American Stories, Learning English," with a dramatic
presentation of the story 鄭 Princess of Mars,・by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Transcript and audio streaming at http://goo.gl/nxM1DU .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, via SIBC, 1309, Feb 23.
Yet another day of extended broadcasting (now daily?); non-stop songs
(Lionel Richie - "Stuck on you," Men At Work - "Who can it be now?," etc.);
frequent brief SA/IDs; not as strong as yesterday; still on at 1410. Yesterday,
Yoshiyuki Ohashi (formerly active in SWL as "Peace-J") was also hearing
this at 1321, with nice reception in Japan.

Wantok FM 96.3, was established in 1999, as a part of SIBC, to attract a
younger audience - http://goo.gl/TLliig .

USA. 7505v, WRNO, 0424, Thursday (Feb 23). In Chinese, with "Praise
for Today," already in progress; poor-fair.

ZAMBIA. 5915, ZNBC/Radio One, 0458, Feb 23. In English; promo
for the "Zambia Bureau of Standards"; music & call of fish eagle; "One
Zambia, one nation"; news & sports ("Bank of Zambia projects a 3.9%
economic growth rate this year," etc.); 0515 weather and repeat promo
for the "Zambia Bureau of Standards"; 0517 into vernacular; no "load
shedding" today, unlike yesterdays closing down at sunrise.

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, 0340, Feb 23. Normal format at this time;
brief chanting and mention of "Zanzibar"; almost fair; better than usual.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (9) Ron Howard - Feb 28, 2017 03:32 UTC No.2164
CHINA. 5979, Gannan PBS, 1344, Feb 27. In Chinese; ex: 5970 
still remains a clear frequency. This must be an intended permanent
change, as it has been about three months now since they moved
to this new frequency.

CONGO. 6115, Radio Congo (presumed), 0515-0518*, Feb 27.
Clearly hearing announcers in French underneath strong Japan
(SA/IDing as "RN2, Radio Nikkei"), but after 0518 certainly not on
the air through checking to 0545. Brazzaville local sunrise at
0505 UT. Seemed strange to me that they went off the air about
their sunrise. Perhaps I have been checking for them too late,
when I was looking closer to 0600 UT?

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005.0, RNGE, R. Bata (presumed),
on Feb 27, noted decent open carrier at 0522 and subsequent
checking; never made out any audio; decent level OC past 0546.
No, do not believe it was Madagascar.

INDIA. 4870.27, AIR (Delhi-Kingsway), at 1357, on Feb 27, with
subcontinent music/singing; scheduled to be in Nepali; best in USB
to get away from RRI Wamena on the low side.

4970, AIR Shillong, 1506, Feb 26 (Sunday), with Christian songs;
1510 local SA/ID and news headlines in English; "please stand by for
the news"; 1512 start of the New Delhi audio feed.

Shillong is a hill station in northeast India and capital of the state
of Meghalaya. Christianity is the dominant religion there. In fact
Christianity is the major religion in three northeastern states
(Nagaland, Mizoram, and Meghalaya).

INDONESIA. 3344.86, RRI Ternate, 1445-1504*, Feb 27. Off
with the usual "Pulau Ambon" (Island of Ambon)/"Love Ambon."

MALAYSIA. 6050, Salam FM, 1505 till past 1518, Feb 27. Strong
signal, with good reception; in vernacular; many SA/IDs.

11665, Wai FM, with the Sunday (Feb 26) "Country and Western"
show; at 1534 with American C&W songs (Kenny Rogers - "The
Gambler," etc.); DJ in vernacular giving title to songs; good
reception.

PHILIPPINES. 17820, R. Pilipinas, 0231-0241, Feb 26. Only this
frequency very readable; // 15640 // 17700 not so readable. News
about the activities of the president and of tourism in the Philippines;
擢rom the presidential palace Manila, Dateline Malacang,・which
of course is the name of the presidential palace.

RUSSIA. 7345 // 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. Feb 26 (Sunday)
noted at 0246, with their weekend schedule (0000-0500), as opposed
to the weekday schedule 0300-0500; pop songs; 0250 usual SA/ID and ads;
covered at *0258 by strong RRI sign on (IS), which is often not so strong
as today.

7345 // 7295, on Feb 27 (Monday), 0450-0500*; usual SA/ID and ads; music;
0500 IS (Jew's harp - khomus) and 3 pips; 7295 with much better reception
than normal, with 7345 still stronger.

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1517, Feb 27. Call-to-prayer for the
Islamic Maghrib prayer, just after sunset; their sunset today was at 1514
UT (6:14 PM at Hargeisa), while my sunrise was at 1440 UT.

ZAMBIA. 5915, ZNBC/Radio One, 0500, Feb 27. In English with news,
sports, weather and government promo ending at 0512 and into vernacular.
Have found the length of the English segment varies daily, ending between
0512 to 0518.

Hello! Ron-san and Hiroyuki-san.
How are you today?
I'm feeling good because I just had a really good lunch in the morning after my grave-yard shift.

To Ron-san.
Regarding your audio KBS Hanminjok Bangsong on 6015 kHz from California, that sounds good! and nice catch & timing of not jammed!
The photograph of rainbow at Asilomar State Beach is very beautiful, too!

0700UTC time pips is 1600KST(JST) time pips. (4pm afternoon)
KST is Shoth Korean Standard Time, and it's same as Japanese Standard Time(JST).

I was able to confirm that SA/IDs in your audio.
The SA/IDs of Korean language is "KBS Hanminjok Bangsong e nyuseu ip nida." by male voice after the time pips.
This Korean language mean "This is KBS Hanminjok Bangsong's news."

Pop Pacific Islands song; in Pidgin/Tok Pisin with info about "very
important document," "record of employment," "Bougainville Board
of Education"; 1126 PSA about the upcoming elections in June;
back to DJ with pop Pacific Islands songs till suddenly off in
mid-song, so they did not make it through to their normal 1200*;
better than semi-readable.

Only very light QRM from RRI Palangkaraya, which at 1113 played
the distinctive patriotic song 釘agimu Negeri・(For You Our Country),
but was far underneath NBC.

Seeing as PNG will be holding national and local government
elections this coming June, we can expect many more PSAs
and more info about the elections.

CHINA. March 9, a day with Voice of Strait anomalies. Timeline:

1212 - both 4900 (Minnan language service) and 4940 ("Voice of Taiwan
Strait News Radio") off the air. In the past, both had *1200 sign on times.

1248 - noted 6115 on the air (Minnan language service).

*1248-1249* - happened to briefly hear 4940 come on the air and go off.

1314 - found 6115 silent. So is the switch from 6115 to 4900 happening
now at 1300, instead of formerly at 1200?

1315 - heard both 4900 and 4940; both with strong OTH radar QRM.

5979, Gannan PBS, 1318, March 9. Sounded like Chinese and played

Hi Glenn,

During my March 7 reception on 6015 (KBS Hanminjok Bangsong),
heard a phone report between a man and woman (00:21+ on my
audio), at 0714 UT. Thanks to input from Chulsu-san (Korean DXer),
via Amano-san and Hiroyuki-san, have learned the following about
that phone report:

"After 25 seconds [into my audio - Ron], female announcer says 'jayu
asia bangsong'. 'jayu asia bangsong' is Radio Free Asia (RFA).

After 29 seconds, female announcer says 'seoul jiguk gija'.
'seoul jiguk gija' is Seoul branch reporter.

After 31 seconds, female announcer says 'annyeong ha seyo'.
'annyeong ha seyo' is hello.

After 40 seconds, it is RFA Seoul branch reporter phone report.
He is male. He explained the fact that the US Trump regime began
full-fledged discussions on North Korea policy.

*KBS Hanminjok Bangsong has a cooperative relationship with UBS
National Unification Broadcast (formerly RFC), as well as RFA Korean
broadcasting."

So very nice to receive such detailed analysis of my audio. Greatly
appreciate their kind assistance!

Thank you for reporting to DXLDyg, Ron-san.

6015 kHz cannot hear KBS Hanminjok Bangsong even in Japan hear because of influence of North Korean jamming.
This time it was a catch of nice timing from California!!!

Incidentally, with the medium wave of 972 kHz, there is no jamming from North Korea and you can listen KBS Hanminjok Bangsong clearly at night in Japan.

Postscript :
California is a beautiful city.
The rainbow of Asilomar State Beach in California was very beautiful too.
The following Youtube is Taiwanese pops music clip of 1991.
This song makes beautiful California lyrics.

KOREA SOUTH. 4925, Korean Numbers Station V24, 1431-1442*, 
on March 11; starting with classical music, followed by numbers

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1052-1134* & *1135-
1138*, March 14. Almost fair; in Pidgin/Tok Pisin; pop song (Journey
with "Don't Stop Believing"); long non-stop speech (political?); talk
about "festivals"; briefly off for about a minute, but came back till
finally cut off at 1138*; very light RRI QRM. Another day with an
early closing, so no long with 1200* sign off?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1141-1206*, March 14.
In Pidgin/Tok Pisin; DJ with pop songs (Air Supply with "Lost In Love,"
etc.); 1201 PNG bird call; "NBC News in Brief" (Solomon Islands Prime
Minister Sogavare in PNG for talks with Governor General, etc.; cricket
news; weather forecast); promo for "NBC Radio" and cut off; poor to
almost fair and semi-readable.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1029-1046, March 14. Fairly
readable; "This is the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation,
broadcasting from Honiara"; in Pijin about the official Solomon Islands
women organization for the western province.

RE: DXLD 17-01: Glenn's comment: "GSTQ? Well, they are in the
Commonwealth." At 1045 with PSA: "Nominations are hereby invited

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, on March 13
(Monday), with anomily. At 1235 would normally hear the news
in English (Monday only SAARC news), but today instead non-
stop subcontinent music; also no daily weather report at 1251.
Hope this was a one day only event!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, cut off at 1201*,
March 15. Mixing with RRI. So the sign off time is just varying a
great deal, as much as 20-30 minutes early. Today NBC Madang
(3260) with 1206*.

CHINA. 6115 switching to 4900, Voice of Strait, 1259-1300,
March 14. New time for changing frequencies (ex: 1200); 6115,
there till 1259, closing just before time pips; then 4900 starts up
just after the time pips, so they were off the air during pips; fair.
Believe must be the same for VOS on 9505 moving to 4940,
now at 1300 (ex: 1200).

5050, "Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio," 1400, March 12. Pips;
"The Beijing time is now 10 PM," followed by multi-language IDs
(English - "FM .?. Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio・ in the past was "FM
96.4," but hard to confirm that, as during the ID they play loud
background music); then in English "BBR Evening News" and
into the news in Vietnamese; fair with some AIR Aizawl QRM
on frequency.

JAPAN. 774, JOUB Akita (NHK-2), 1245, March 15. Start of the
"Rajio Eikaiwa" English language lesson, with "I'm Ken Toyama";
at times fair.

KOREA SOUTH. 4925, Korean Numbers Station V24, 1435,
on March 13. Tuned in to catch the end of classical music and
start of numbers in Korean; another day with good signal.

Hiroyuki-san continues to update V24 info at http://goo.gl/80GQFu .
Excellent!!

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, 1305-1326, March 14. Non-stop
speech about Sarawak, sounded like Prime Minister Razak; mostly
in vernacular, but with "No problem in Sarawak," "I believe in the
economy"; fair. Not // 11665 (Wai FM) and 6050 was silent (Asyik
FM); fair.

PHILIPPINES. 15640 // 17700 // 17820, R. Pilipinas, 0248, March 10.
"Singapore song from an ASEAN country," "Philippine Trivia"; mostly all
fair. During the winter, this normally was below threshold level, but am
now hearing them almost daily with readable signals.

Confirming the new time for changing frequencies (ex: 1200); 9505
going off just after the time pips; 4940 had carrier on and off a few
times till 1302 start of their audio.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1238, March 19. Strong signal; virtually
no modulation. Sad!

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1207-1210*, March 19.
Seeing as it's Sunday, was checking for the usual "Island Praise"
show presented by Stacy Rose, with her syndicated (USA) show,
with pop Caribbean gospel music (reggae, soca, calypso, hip hop
gospel, etc.) and yes, it started at 1207 (somewhat later than usual),
with her very distinctive voice; only three minutes of her show. Up till
1207, NBC with their usual local programming,

PHILIPPINES. 15640 // 17700 // 17820, R. Pilipinas, 0318-0329*.
March 19. Talk about President Duterte wanting country to change
from unitary to federalism form of government, especially for
Mindanao; spot for ASEAN; closing SA/ID for "DZRP" (the only time
I have heard this callsign used in an SA/ID); choral National Anthem;
tones and off. Most days now am having decent reception on all
frequencies, so a nice change in propagation.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, 1227-1235, March 19. One of their
best days; recently had unusable signals, but today nicely above
threshold level audio; subcontinent singing/chanting; 1230 news in
English and clearly // 5040 (AIR Jeypore); items about congress
and prime minister; cricket scores for India/Australia match; 1235
no longer //.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, SIBC (presumed), 0501*, March 19.
Very poor; just an open carrier; has been a while now since I last
heard this above threshold level audio at this closing time.

5020, SIBC, 1145-1201*, March 19. Christian hymn; ad for mobile
phone service in English; DJ in Pijin; evening devotional in English,
which was cut short at 1201*; recently no extended broadcasts.

ERITREA. 7175, VOBME 2 (presumed), on March 21. Thanks to
Thorsten Hallmann's alert in DXLD yg; 1438-1456 alternating
announcers (OM & YL); language seemed correct to be them;
HOA music/singing; clear of any jamming till *1505 start of
strong white noise (or DRM?) jamming, completely blocking
any usable reception; formerly the jamming always started
here about *1500-1501.

Last heard VOBME 2, on 7180 kHz., in late Dec. 2016.

No signal found today around 7146.55 (VOBME 1); to be sure
I checked after 1505 and heard no jamming, so safe to say only
one frequency in use today.

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, RNGE, R. Bata, on March 23,
the best reception I have had here in a long time! Open carrier
at 0516; suddenly at 0527 had African singing; Wolfie's "Hungarian
Gypsy violin Czardas music" and SA/ID at 0531; from 0533 to 0542
monologue in Spanish.

It was in DXLD 15-49, that Wolfie reported "at 0532 UT Hungarian
Gypsy violin Czardas music played," which I also happened to hear
at the same time back then, plus I also heard a "Radio Nacional" SA/ID
(my 2015 recording at http://goo.gl/hKlL8W of "Hungarian Gypsy violin
Czardas music" and SA/ID).

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1131-1201*, March 23. Pop
Pacific Islands songs; DJ in Pijin; ad in English with pricing for various
mobile phone data plans and also ad in Pijin for mobile phone service;
evening devotional in English, which was cut short at 1201*. Seems
they have again ended their extended broadcasts, at least for now.

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC, on March 23, start of IS at 0241;
0415-0419, the often heard GOtv promo in English & vernacular;
0500-0515, news/weather in English (long item about Zambia and the
"ICC" [International Criminal Court], Zambian Air Force officer killed by

ANGOLA[non-log]. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola. Thanks 
to Thorsten Hallmann for monitoring this, as well as Wolfie who
reported early on March 24 (UT), that Angola continues to be
silent.

Also thanks very much to Bill Bingham (RSA) for checking:

"... as you say, nothing heard from Angola. 4949.7 Angola, Radio
Nacional, Mulenvos. Mar 23, 2017 Thursday. 1840-1845. Nothing

0041-0045. Nothing heard, no carrier found. Jo'burg sunrise 0413.

Would have expected to hear something at both times, even if
unreadable here in Jo'burg. Bill" (March 24)

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville. March 24,
at 1125, only one station here and that was Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya,
in Bahasa Indonesia and with singing RRI jingle; NBC also not heard
earlier.

CHINA. 6060, Sichuan PBS-2. After recent monitoring, sorry to
report that this station has done away with the ToH SA/ID format that
they used for many years, that included the SA/ID in English ("Nationality
Channel. Sichuan, the People's Radio Station. SW 6060, 7225, FM
88.1"); first heard that English SA/ID back in May, 2013; the new format
is much more abbreviated than the old one. Checked a number of days
at ToH of 1100, 1200 & 1300. Will certainly miss their former distinctive
SA/IDs! (March 24)

KOREA SOUTH. 6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, 1000, March 24.
Time pips; in Korean; hosted by Kwak Young Il, who is easily recognized
by his distinctive voice; intro with SA/ID for the program "Pops Freedom, KBS"
and slow SA/ID for "K - B - S"; playing some pop songs (Cyndi Lauper -
"Girls Just Want to Have Fun," etc.); usual series of three nice SA/IDs; first
by native speaker of English, second in Korean and third in English by
Kwak Young Il - "Now you are listening to KBS, Pops Freedom"; regular
segment "Everyday English" language lesson; poor, but cutting through
the ever present white noise jamming from N. Korea, and at times semi-
readable. Happy to find that this program is still being aired! Website

At the end of their local news, gave SA/ID and played the patriotic

ANGOLA[non-log]. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola, on March 27,
another day this station was silent; 0300 and subsequent checking
till 0357, with no trace of a carrier.

ERITREA. 7175, VOBME 2 (presumed), on March 27. A long
phone conversation 1445-1501; into HOA music till hit at *1502
with the start of strong white noise (or DRM?) jamming, blocking
reception; weak; some ham QRM, but not much. Nothing heard
around their other frequency of 7146.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6040, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata,
continues to be free of N. Korea jamming on this new frequency,
on March 27, at 1331; scheduled 1300-1400.

6090, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, on March 27, at 1406. In Japanese
with the usual segment "A message from the Japanese Government";
into what I assume was the programming of "Furusato No Kaze"
("Wind of Hometown") program (per Hiroshi), still in Japanese;
fair-good with no jamming, but faint CNR2 QRM far underneath.

SIKKIM[non-log]. 4835, AIR Gangtok. March 27, had my local
sunrise at 1400 UT. Gangtok was unheard, not even a faint carrier,
at 1357, nor later at 1506, on March 27. Unusual for them to be
off the air!

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC format of extended program of
non-stop pop songs (The Angels - "My Boyfriend's Back," etc.), on
March 27, from 1333 till still there at 1505; started out fair, but slowly
went downhill; no SA/IDs or any announcements, so clearly unlike the
Wantok FM relay heard yesterday.

HOA music till again hit at *1502 with the start of strong white noise
(or DRM?) jamming, blocking reception. Again nothing heard around
their other frequency of 7146.

INDONESIA. 9524.96, VOI, 1307, March 28. Surprisingly semi-
readable; end of "Commentary"; "Today in History" (2005 had 8.6
quake; 1979 had nuclear accident at Three Mile Island; 1999 had
146 killed in the Kosovo War); into "Focus." Not often that this is
heard so well.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1319-1322, March 28. Special
live coverage of the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) Asian Cup
qualification soccer match; in vernacular; Myanmar vs India, being
held in Yangon; usual background sounds for such an event (crowd
cheering, loudspeaker, etc.); preempted regular programming; fair.

PHILIPPINES[non-log]. 15640 // 17700 // 17820, R. Pilipinas.
Recently had been hearing them daily with decent reception 0200+,
but March 28 they were off the air; none of their frequencies heard
with any trace of a carrier. Do not believe it was poor propagation.
Probably power outage, due to Manila now having very high
temperatures.

ROMANIA. 6180, RRI, 0456*, March 28. Looking for Brazil (still
off the air), but instead heard this with their new schedule (0400-
0456); fairly strong, so when Brazil returns, this frequency will be
a mess for an hour.

SIKKIM[non-log]. 4835, AIR Gangtok. March 28, continues off
the air; also confirmed silent today by Mauno Ritola.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1146-1201, March 28. DJ in
Pijin reading many texted messages; pop songs; 1155 "Welcome
to our Evening Devotional"; "closing down" SA/ID & NA; much better
reception than normal.

1201, seamless change from SIBC programming over to the extended
broadcast of Wantok FM 96.3 relay of non-stop pop songs (Eagles -
"One of These Nights," Fleetwood Mac - "Landslide," etc.); frequent
SA/IDs ("Listen to the hottest sounds . . . with the hottest DJs, 96.3," "This

Mr.Mauno and Mr.Ron, Thanks for your question.

I can hear bubble jamming in Seoul at 1584 kHz.
Meanwhile, the Chinese broadcasting station was also heard.
The following link is the received audio in Seoul.
Please listen to it.

2017/03/28 2309KST(1409UTC) MW 1584kHz Recevied in Seoul, Korea
http://k003.kiwi6.com/hotlink/3bckb0sedc/170328tue2309_Seoul_1584kHz.mp3
(03min15sec - 03min26sec 1575kHz, 03min29sec - 03min48sec 1593kHz)
I also recorded frequencies around 1584 kHz.
You can hear Chinese stations with 3 frequencies.

This is my personal opinion.
I certainly feel that North Korea is sending jamming waves at 1584 kHz.
But, there are few broadcasting stations targeted by North Korea to transmit jamming waves at 1584 kHz.
This frequency is used from South Korea is "KBS-1 Daejeon, Geumsan Relay Station" and "KBS-1 Jinju, Suncheong Relay Station" are two broadcasting stations.
Both broadcasters are 1 kW broadcasters, small power.
I think that North Korea is not sending jamming waves to these two stations.
Currently I think that it is difficult to identify where jamming is being sent from, and what the purpose is.

Best regards,

Chulsu

ERITREA[non-log]. 7175, VOBME 2, on March 31, checking 
from 1425 to past 1502+; looking for an open carrier or any audio,
but none heard; this was confirmed by the absence of any of the
usual white noise jamming, that recently had consistently been
starting at *1502, that is whenever VOBME was on the air. I
scanned this area 1502+ looking for any white noise jamming
(7146, 7175, 7180, 7185, etc.), but didn't hear any, so clearly
VOBME was off the air today.

CHINA. 5979, Gannan PBS, 1319, April 1. Has been close
to four months now since they moved from ex 5970 to this unique
frequency. It was Dec 3 that Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) first
noted the change. Heard today in Chinese, with a weak signal.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok. After being silent for some days,
heard their open carrier on April 1, at 1256; another day of OTH
radar strong QRM, but the carrier was strong enough to cut through
it.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, via SIBC, 1232,
April 1. Another day with an extended broadcast; non-stop pop
songs, with brief Wantok SA/IDs; still on at 1350, but gone by 1409.

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1326-1340, April 1. Definitely
in English; only able to make out a word here and there; seemed
news till 1331; went to non-HOA pop music; 1340 the usual HOA
theme music to end this 20 minute English segment. My local
sunrise was at 1353 UTC.

VANUATU. 7259.96, R. Vanuatu. April 1, with much better than
normal reception; various amounts of QRM (hams, etc.).

Highlights:

1139-1155: Interview in vernacular; few words in English
("employment information").

1155-1158: Indigenous pop song.

1158-1203: Preaching (Christian) in vernacular.

1203-1229: Non-stop Christian religious songs, many in English.

1229: Clear "Radio Vanuatu" SA/ID.

My edited audio at http://goo.gl/27xiGc .

Am still not hearing them on 3944.2.

Re: Radio Vanuatu Ron Howard - Apr 02, 2017 18:40 UTC No.2205
VANUATU. 7259.96, R. Vanuatu. April 2 (Sunday), with the 
second day of superior reception; found it hard to tune away,
as it's not often heard so well.

Highlights:

1134-1200: Syndicated Christian religious program in English -
"Tomorrow's World," talking about witchcraft, Halloween, the
occult, video games and Harry Potter.

1230-1300: Religious program in vernacular & religious music/
singing; nice organ music.

1300-1320: "Radio Vanuatu" SA/ID; drums & blowing of conch shell;
news in vernacular ("Vanuatu's foreign policy priorities"; cultural
exchange between Vanuatu & New Caledonia; Solomon Islands
government minister; etc.).

1320: "Sports News."

1332: Drums & blowing of conch shell.

1440-1453 & 1521-1528: EZL songs; strange they played several xmas
songs ("White Christmas," etc.). Surprised to be able to still hear them
this late.

for Regional Cooperation) news bulletin in English; 鄭ssalamu

chief visting Bangladesh, China plays a vital role in economic
development of the region, terrorist bomb blast in Pakistan at
Friday prayers, etc.; poor, with usual CODAR and CNR1 QRM,
but able to make out bits and pieces.

INDONESIA. 9524.95, VOI, 1358, April 3. Ending the segment
in English with clear SA/ID. Recently several stations have been heard
well above their normal reception, this one and Radio Vanuatu. Due
to propagation? My audio of SA/ID at http://goo.gl/maJ8fB .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1153, April 3. Christian song
before the start of "Evening Devotional"; "closing down" SA/ID & NA.

pop hit songs (Cher - "Love Hurts," etc.); normal Wantok SA/IDs; still
doing well at last check, at 1402.

average reception; 1244-1302 with pop songs; followed by drums and
blowing of conch shell; SA/ID and news in vernacular.

CHINA. 9505, Voice of Strait (Minnan language service), 1300,
April 26. Off just after the time pips; switched to 4900, which started
up a matter of seconds later. 6115 also switched over to 4940
("Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio," as SA/IDed on Saturdays after
"Focus on China" English program [1500-1530]), which started
audio at 1301.

After almost three months of being on 4900, guess we can call this a
permanent change of frequency.

LAOS. 6130, Lao National Radio, 1404, April 26. In Chinese till
1424 indigenous music; 1430 switched over to English; 典his is the
Lao National Radio"; news; 1450-1500 a different segment in English;
1501 French; poor; not very readable, but able to confirm languages.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1328, April 26. Usual BoH
(their local ToH) format of singing SA/ID, giving three different "kilohertz"
frequencies, followed by chimes; in vernacular; almost good. My
local sunrise was at 1319 UT and their local sunset was at 1223 UT.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1226-1240, April 26. Doing
fairly well, but mixing with CNR1; traditional songs; after 1230 started to
also hear R. Thazin (Myanmar) underneath; Russia lost out to the other
two stations about 1240. Unable to hear // 7295.

Somalia: Seven journalists quit Puntland State TV, coverage on the blink 
Aug 10, 2015 - Garowe Online

GAROWE, Somalia, August 10, 2015 (Garowe Online)-Seven journalists including editor and program producers ditched their jobs,
putting the coverage of Puntland State Television on the blink, Garowe Online reports.

In late September, state broadcaster staff members protested long overdue salaries, however.
Strikebreaking measures carried on by the presidency quelled the lag in the coverage.

Puntland Radio in September SRI - Oct 01, 2015 07:01 UTC No.234
I had been monitor to Puntland Radio on 13800 kHz after 0530 via remote tuner or WebSDR in Europe until 1200, 
because could not be heard it in Japan.
In Japan, it is audible after 1200.
Interference came from R.Dabanga until 0557, and there was due to CNR1 and RFA from 1000 to 1100.

TNX! HIHARA.
Their broadcasting is irregular, day able to hear shortwave 13800kHz has become less.

Re: Puntland Radio 13800kHz SRI - Oct 13, 2015 06:21 UTC No.256
Puntland Radio was reactivated after short absense from October 8, 2015.


On October 12, It could be heard beyond 1830 (s/off until 1930).
On October 13, It can be already heard at 0535 under Radio Dabanga.
It inserted Radio program for short time in the middle of PLTV's relay.
It seems that their program for radio broadcast is still Somali music only.
We can be heard Puntland Radio's ID during this slot.

Fixed ID in Italian, English and Somali, were given at 1148 and 1211 on October 12, 0557 on October 13.

In Japan, it is difficult to hear Puntland Radio on 13800 kHz in this season.
We need the help of DXer and Remote Receiver in Europe for check it.
Thanks.

OK, but, but the QRM conditions may be entirely different by then.
Must we assume all these are direct, no relays? 2300 is also a new
time for any English broadcast, rather late for Africa; 1400 had
been only on 9640 for SE Asia in A-16. Times are not explicitly

Re: Africa - ELWA on 4760 kHz. Ron Howard - Oct 12, 2016 16:47 UTC No.1770
Back from vacation :)

LIBERIA, 4760, ELWA (presumed), 1457-1529, Oct 12. Often
I check here for AIR Port Blair during my mornings, but today
was a first for me, hearing Africa via long path; no trace of AIR at
all; certainly sounded like an African vernacular language; some
religious songs; series of ads; seemed to be religious programs;
my local sunrise was at 1413 UT. Positive was not India. My weak
audio of preaching at http://goo.gl/Oecbc4

Oooops - Thanks to Jari Savolainen (Finland) for pointing
out my error. I must have in fact been hearing TWR,
scheduled in Shona at that time. Sorry for the mistake.

Appreciate the correction!

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (8) Ron Howard - Oct 12, 2016 20:09 UTC No.1772
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1156*, Oct 12. Before
going off, mixing with RRI Palangkaraya (which was later not on the
air at 1339, so RRI went off very early today).

INDONESIA. 9525.9, VOI, Oct 12 with anomaly; 1141 in English;
1221 still in English; 1304 normal English segment (news, "Commentary,"
"Focus," "News in Brief," "Indonesian Wonders," "Let's Speak Bahasa
Indonesia," but no "Today in History"); mostly fair and readable, but with
audio hum; 1402 still in English.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1203*, Oct 12. Did
not complete the "NBC News in Brief"; poor.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands (presumed), 1203, Oct 12. Just an
open carrier here, but below threshold level, so no audio; still on the
air at 1236

[non-log] 7324.95 Wantok Radio Light. Oct 12 checking at 1235
only to find the frequency completely clear; so CRI (7325.0) is
also silent at this time.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay via SIBC, 1204,
Oct 12. Playing the usual pop songs (Air Supply with "Even The
Nights Are Better," etc.); frequent IDs ("This is Wantok FM 96.3.
Good times, great music," etc.); off the air for several minutes
about 1222; still broadcasting at 1303.

UNID on 5020, with open carrier here today at 1436. Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan) has also been hearing this; the open
carrier (no audio) is much weaker than SIBC is normally heard.

TAJIKISTAN. 4790, BBC Uzbek, 1328-1330*, Oct 12. Another day
with no CNR1 programming jamming; poor/CODAR QRM; off after
time pips.

VANUATU. 7260 (slightly on the low side), R. Vanuatu (presumed),
1237, Oct 12. Playing pop songs ("Easy Like Sunday Morning" by
Lionel Richie, etc.); China QRM; checking 3944.2 after 1400 and
surprised to not even hear an open carrier from them.

Re: Myanmar - New program schedule Ron Howard - Oct 17, 2016 14:55 UTC No.1792
MYANMAR. New program schedule. Starting in
Feb 2014, through April 2016, I had enjoyed hearing
the Radio Australia language lessons on 9730
(Myanmar Radio), on Monday and Wednesday.
During April, I was no longer hearing this unique show.

Oct 17 (Monday), finally found their new schedule for
the R. Australia produced "English for Business," on
5985, from 1215 to 1235; "Lesson 16, A Presentation";
full transcript of today's show at http://goo.gl/RhAa0H ;
believe their schedule for this program will be sometime
during the 1200-1300 UT segment, on Monday and
Wednesday. In the past the exact timing of these
programs usually varied somewhat.

It will be recalled that back in Nov 2013, ABC signed an
agreement with Myanmar to share programming (full
2013 story at http://goo.gl/VVSOl8 ).

Based on some of my recent observations, Myanmar Radio,
on 5985, also has the following:

VOA's Special English on Wednesday, during a portion of
1530-1600.

NHK's "Friends Around the World" on Thursday and Friday,
during a portion of 1530-1600.

NHK also produces a radio drama in the Burmese language
for Myanmar Radio, but am not sure of the schedule on 5985.

Appreciate any corrections or additions.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1137-1200*, Oct 19. Mixing with PBS 
Yunnan - Voice Shangri-la (today also 1200*); playing pop songs
(Nobel prize winner for literature Bob Dylan with "Just Like a
Woman," etc.).

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, on Oct 13, nice to hear English
SA/IDs (". . . Voice Shangri-la") at 1130 and again at 1139; mixing
with Bhutan/BBS; 1200*. Oct 15 with classical orchestra music
1205-1223*, with Bhutan/BBS already off the air. Oct 18 again
with classical music 1200-1206*; Oct 19 with 1200*.

7200, Firedragon (musical jamming), 1130, Oct 19; very strong
against RTI, along with the usual CNR1 jamming.

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1114, Oct 13.
Tuning by, noted that they were playing the patriotic song
釘agimu Negeri・(For You Our Country) and local ID; this
song was composed by Indonesian musician and composer
Koesbini, in 1942; much stronger than NBC Bougainville;
http://goo.gl/XTawQP has a studio quality rendition of "Bagimu
Negeri."

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1235-1255, with the Wednesday
(Oct 19) language "Lesson 16, A Presentation," which was a repeat of
the Monday show (heard 1215-1235); strong N. Korea pulsating noise
jamming till 1251, which was warming up for Shiokaze; after jamming
off, almost fair; always starts and ends with the same theme music. As
often noted in the past when this was formerly on 9730, the Monday
show is on the air earlier than the Wednesday program.

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed), on Oct 14, 15 and 17, hear
at various times between *1100-1300*; mostly EZL music and in Chinese;
suddenly went off the air in mid-music. Oct 18 and 19 not on during 1100-
1300, but Oct 18 did find then with the usual 1000* (is off the air 1000-1100),
suddenly went off the air. Scheduling here is never what I would call regular.
9774 seems to only be on the air very rarely and I have not heard that in a
long time.

time of being off frequency, I noted on Sept 19 that they were
on exact frequency (confirmed by Wolfy) and subsequently heard
as such, but on Oct 19 & 20 they are now back to again being off
frequency. What happened?

MYANMAR/BURMA. 7200, Myanmar Radio. Oct 20, at 1300
noted both RTI and CNR1 jamming went off the air after the time
pips; expected to hear Myanmar, but not on the air; during
subsequent checking till 1350 and still off the air, but heard at
1421 with fair-good reception.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. Surprised to hear this on
Oct 20, at 0357. That would be about 4 hours before their sunset! At
0400 the usual IS (Jew's harp) and time pips; into the news; unable

loudly protested and caused a ruckus till they finally walked out
on the PM's speech; preempted regular programming; after

program "Focus on China"; started with Air Supply singing "Making
Love Out of Nothing at All"; on Monday, China sent two "astronauts"
into space for 30 days (actually "taikonauts" would seem to be a more
accurate word); reviewed the history of China's space program; SA/ID
"You are now listening to Focus on China, Voice of Strait Broadcast

[non-log] 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice Shangri-la), seemed to already be
off the air when first checked at 1142; only BBS/Bhutan heard till 1201*.

INDONESIA[non logs]. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, Oct 22 noted
off the air at 1203 and subsequent checking. RRI Wamena also silent
today on 4869.89, at 1332, leaving the frequency clear for AIR (Delhi-
Kingsway) on 4870.57, which has been off frequency since I first noticed
it on Sept 4.

MALAYSIA[non-log]. 11665, Wai FM. Oct 22 continues to be silent.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, Oct 21. Doing fairly well at start
of their English segment at 1530. Fairly clear audio of the theme music
and SA/ID at http://goo.gl/oHCX1Y , which goes something like:

"Hello listeners. Good evening. Here is our final transmission for today,
radiating on 5985 kHz., 50.13 meters, 576 kHz., 520 meters and 594 kHz,
505 meters. Now we start with the news."

BTW - My Box.com audio was delayed on Oct 21, as that site was
one that was hit with the distributed denial of service attack (DDoS).
Could not access their site for hours.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA[non-log]. 7324.96, Wantok Radio Light. Now
that Shiokaze has moved away for their *1405 (now down on 5985),
this frequency is once again clear to check for WRL, but not heard
at 1408, on Oct 22. Has been off the air for a long time now.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, 1217-1302, Oct 21.
Yet another extended broadcast; pops songs; Wantok FM SA/IDs (very
different format than the SIBC extended broadcast of only Public
Service Announcements, commercial announcements and no SA/IDs);
audio ended at 1302, but open carrier with decent strength was
noted past 1337.

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed), 1134, Oct 22. Very weak
signal, but certainly here with music.

VANUATU. 7260 (slightly on the low side), R. Vanuatu, 1205-1305,
Oct 22. Religious program in vernacular, along with some religious
songs; into program of non-stop pop songs (Elton John with "Can You
Feel the Love Tonight," etc.); 1304 drums and conch shell horn before
the news; some China QRM.

3944.2 has been unheard for a while now; not even a trace of a carrier.

ANGOLA. 4949.73, R. Nacional de Angola, 0312-0410, Oct 24.
Outstanding propagation; rarely heard at this level; numerous
clear SA/IDs ("Radio Nacional de Angola"); African and EZL pop
songs; 0400 time pips; news; as Wolfy has already reported
today, after 0410 there was intermittent digital noise (QRM); a
radio drama noted at 0438 with no QRM; still being heard at
0529. Enjoyed this unusual reception! Audio http://goo.gl/K7lPiF

BHUTAN. 6035.0, BBS, 1144-1200*, Oct 23. Pop songs and
announcer clearly in English; PBS Yunnan off the air before 1200.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1242-1314, Oct 23. The usual
Sunday program of American country & western songs ("You
Do Your Thing" by Montgomery Gentry, "Cups" by Anna
Kendrick, etc.); DJ in English; at times almost fair. Not my
favorite music, but knowing it was coming all the way from
Shillong, made it more palatable.

5040, AIR Jeypore, 1331, Oct 23. Fair signal with subcontinent
music. Many times during my local mornings, this is the strongest
AIR regional station that I hear.

5050, AIR Aizawl, 1220-1230, Oct 23. Local SA/ID; into some type of
news in English; 1225-1230 in Hindi; 1230 with the New Delhi audio
feed of the news in English, giving clear ID "This is All India Radio.
The news read by . ."; very respectable signal strength, even though
mixing with Beibu Bay Radio (CHINA).

KOREA NORTH. 3277.0 (AM), V28 ("The Parrot"), 1336-1339*,
Oct 23. Korean numbers station; poor.

TIBET. 4905, Xizang PBS (Tibetan Service) via Lhasa, 1139, Oct 23.
For several weeks now this frequency has been totally clear of the long
standing RTTY QRM, during my local mornings; fair-good and // 4920
(fair/light QRM). Wonderful not to hear the RTTY!

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar (Home Service),
1532-1545*, Oct 25. News and "Commentary" in English; not
very readable with CNR1 QRM; during the news at 1536
"This is Bangladesh Betar with the news"; in another month
should have much better reception.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on Oct 25,
tuned in at 1017 and during subsequent checking till 1205, heard
only one station here - RRI Palangkaraya; no NBC at all here or
on 6020.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Salam FM, 1501, Oct 25. Islamic programming
(reciting from the Qur'an, etc.); in vernacular; many singing SA/IDs;
1515 SA/ID with "shortwave" and "FM" frequencies; still on the air at
1530, which is unusual, as they normally pull the plug shortly after
1500.

Probably stayed on longer than usual due to Asyik FM starting very
late today on 6050; Asyik not heard at 1040, 1220, 1234, 1305 nor
1330 (only Tibet heard). Finally at 1444 heard Asyik FM with very
good reception.

BTW - 11665, Wai FM, on Oct 25, still silent.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1144-1202*, Oct 25.
DJ in Tok Pisin/Pidgin, playing pop Pacific Islands music; religious
song at 1158, in Pidgin, with "hallelujah, hallelujah"; suddenly off
before the start of the news.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands (presumed), 1203, 1218 & 1223,
Oct 25. Decent level open carrier, but no audio heard.

TIBET. 6200, Xizang PBS via Lhasa, 1600, Oct 25. The 滴oly Tibet・br>program in English; usual intro - 典his is Holy Tibet, presented to you
by China Tibet Broadcasting. Find out the history and reality on the
roof of the world and keep in touch with the developments and changes
in Tibet. This is Holy Tibet・ news items.

BTW - Voice of Jinling (CHINA), signed off here at 1501* today.

UNIDENTIFIED. 3210, after almost daily checking here, on Oct 25 had a
definite station for a brief time at 1426; announcer and faint music; not
very usable and too weak to get any meaningful details, but seemed to
be a positive sign of some activity here. My local sunrise at 1425 UTC.
Perhaps will have better results in the coming months? Of course hope
this will turn out to be Unique Radio, the low powered Australian station.

Special program which preempted regular shows; farewell speech
by an Australian (official?) who was returning home; thanked many
people; mentioned Australian government support, alliance for
peace and prosperity, "Thank you for your hospitality"; thanks
given to the organizers of the event and a prayer given; another
speech in English by a young woman; 1157 into Pidgin and
mentioned "5:30 AM tomorrow morning"; unable to make just who
was giving the speech, but he must have been an important
official; off the air just after "NBC Bougainville" SA/ID; light
QRM from RRI Palangkaraya.

INDONESIA. 9525.9, VOI (Channel II program), Oct 26 anomaly
at 1316. Not the normal VOI Channel I English programs of news,
commentary, Today in History, Focus, etc.; today played a lot of EZL
music; 1321 talking about the Jakarta weather, in English; 1326 back
to music. It was on Sept 25 that VOI also had this anomaly of playing

Several weeks without the usual RTTY QRM were nice, but today the

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1110-1113*, Nov 6. In English; mixing with 
PBS Yunnan (Voice Shangri-la); suddenly off leaving PBS in the clear
till past 1202; an early cut off for BBS.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, 1504, Nov 5. Saturday only English
program "Focus on China"; items about the Confucius Institutes in
China and about the Waldorf alternative educational system; IDs
("You are now listening to Focus on China, Voice of Strait Broadcast
Station"); fair.

INDIA. 6165, AIR (New Delhi), 1402, Nov 5. The strongest station here;
others probably China & Myanmar, but too weak to tell; had hoped for
Myanmar with English at 1430, but not even close to being able to make
them out; subcontinent music/singing till tuned out at 1450.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0500*, Nov 4. Off with the
usual IS (Jew's harp) and time pips; QRN (static).

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1212, Nov 5. Extended SIBC
programming of non-stop pop songs (Cyndi Lauper, etc.); never an ID
(clearly not a Wantok FM relay); off the air shortly before 1347.

5020, Wantok FM relay, Nov 6 (Sunday), 1223-1339*. The Sunday show
of Christian religious songs in English; frequent IDs (1234, 1241, 1248,
1257, 1300, 1309, 1317, 1327 and 1334); almost fair when sudden cut off.

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio, at 1317, on Nov 7 found a 
rare occasion with Myanmar actually stronger than the normally
stronger CRI (Russian). Must be due to propagation.

5985, Myanmar Radio, on Nov 7 with a series of false starts (briefly
on and then off the air), *1123-1124*, *1126-1127*, *1128-1129* and
finally back on to stay at *1129; usual singing SA/ID jingle with three
frequencies at 1130 (Myanmar local ToH); all in vernacular till 1215
"English for Business," "Lesson 19, Negotiating" (full transcript at
http://goo.gl/HSoH47), with the start of their 20 minute Monday
edition of Radio Australia's language lesson in English and Burmese,
with a business dialog in English. This program will be repeated
again this Wednesday (Nov 9), but at a slightly later time, between
1230-1300.

7200 [non-log], Myanmar Radio, recently have found them not here
after 1300, per their past observed schedule; at 1300 the PRC jamming
of Taiwan (RTI) ends. Change in the Myanmar schedule? Noted so
today (Nov 7). BTW - before 1300 today, heard Firedragon (music
jamming) here, as well as the usual CNR1 jamming.

ERITREA. 7180.0, VOBME 2, brief check at 1428, Nov 24, found

Nov 24. Kang Guru Indonesia ("KGI") mostly in English, but a few
short segments in Bahasa Indonesia; intro by "Ana" & "Greg"; "Kang
Guru is here, helping you with English"; this was a repeat of the Aug

Pacific Islands song; one of their better days for listening to music,

(CKZU) currently off the air is that this station can now be heard in the
clear; Nov 29, heard 1035-1050 & 1129-1200; local times given, saying
was the "same for most of Labrador," but I note was not the time in St.
John's; local weather; school closures; sports scores; "part one" about
the documentary "Power of the Sweatlodge"; story of a man trying to get
help for his wife, but mental health facilities in "Labrador West" are not
good; reception poor-fair. Very nice to hear them at a decent level for a
change here on the west coast!

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC extended broadcast on Nov 29,
1310-1321, with non-stop pop songs (no SA/IDs), so not a Wantok FM
relay; at 1321 the music stopped and they just had dead air (open
carrier), which was still on the air at 1333 tuned out.

TAIWAN. 9774.0, Fu Hsing BS (presumed). Extremely rare to catch
them on this frequency! Nov 29, 1236-1300*; in Chinese with some
music; at times below threshold level audio (but still open carrier);
carrier went off at 1300*, conforming to their schedule. Their other
9410 blocked by CNR5, so unable to confirm //.

VANUATU. 7259.95, R. Vanuatu, 1403-1518, Nov 28. Announcers
in vernacular playing pop Pacific Islands songs and C&W songs
("Colder Weather" sung by Zac Brown Band, etc.); sounded like
promo for "Voice of Bong Yumi"; some ads; 1420 several clear
"Radio Vanuatu" SA/IDs; one of their better receptions; no China
QRM, but slight ham QRM; my sunrise was at 1459 UT.

3944.2, after 1401, not hearing Radio Vanuatu at all; not even a trace
of a carrier, which has been the case for a while now. "RN2, Radio
Nikkei" (Japan) signs off on 3945.0 at 1401* (during weekdays).

BTW - Guess I have not been paying enough attention to RN2 SA/IDs, as
for a long time in the past they just gave "RN2," but now am hearing
mostly "RN2, Radio Nikkei" SA/IDs, which are new to me.

ANGOLA. 4949.73, R. Nacional de Angola, 0207-0413 UTC, Nov 30.
Very nicely above threshold level audio; one of their best days;
0300-0304 brief news; African pop songs and indigenous chanting;

CHINA. new frequency 5979 for Gannan PBS (ex: 5970).
Was first noted by Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) on Dec 3.
I observed them today (Dec 5), from 1314 till off sometime
between 1346-1349, which corresponds to Hiroyuki's recent
observations. Radio Marti (5980) is not much of a problem
for me while in LSB.

Expected to hear relay of CNR11 (per Aoki 1300-1400), but
in fact clearly not // to 7350 (CNR11); by 1340 was able to
confirm 7350 // 6010, due to unique Tibetan chanting being
heard; 6010 (CNR11) is between the strong jamming on
6003 & 6015, so extremely poor reception there.

Also unable to confirm Gannan PBS was // 3990, as there was
only an open carrier there (unable to get any audio).

6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice Shangri-la), Dec 5 noted running past
their normal sign off time 1200* by at least two hours; rare anomaly.
Thanks to an alert from Dave Valko on the east coast (USA), I tuned
in at 1254 to hear non-stop classical western orchestra music with
many one minute breaks (dead air) between selection; this is
normal for them when running past 1200; still on the air at 1402+.

CHINA. 5979.0, Gannan PBS (ex: 5970), 1324-1351*, Dec 7.
Better reception than yesterday; definitely not relaying CNR11
(per Aoki 1300-1400), as 7350 // 6010 (CNR11) had a lot of
unique Tibetan chanting/singing; while Gannan PBS was mostly
announcers in Chinese; heard best in LSB.

5900, CNR1 jamming of RTI (*1200-1400*), at 1256, on Dec 7.

9680, Firedragon music jamming of RTI (*1100-1400*), at 1258,
Dec 7.

ERITREA. 7146.55, VOBME 1 (presumed), 1411, on Dec 7,
with HOA music/singing; not // 7175.0; both almost fair.

7175.0, VOBME 2 (presumed), 1411, on Dec 7, with announcers
in vernacular; not // 7146.55; both almost fair.

MONGOLIA. reactivated 4830, Mongolian Radio 2. Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan) first reported their return on Dec 2; only
weak audio heard on Dec 7, at 1311 and 1358-1400.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (presumed), 1410, Dec 7. Hearing
traces of subcontinent music, but very faint, under ABC (with "Night
Life" national weather). So on Jan 31, we should be able to finally
have a chance daily to catch for this rarely reported station, in the clear.

Re: R. Madagasikara & SIBC Ron Howard - Dec 08, 2016 17:47 UTC No.1955
MADAGASCAR. 5011.92v, R. Madagasikara (presumed),
1502-1536, Dec 8. Poor with QRN (static); decent signal
strength, but still no positive ID; best in USB to get away
from AIR (5010); very light drifting today; African pop songs
and calypso rhythm xmas song "Mary's Boy Child," in English.
My local sunrise was at 1508 UT. My audio, with brief talking
and then xmas song, at http://goo.gl/0s8moJ .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, with very long extended
broadcast on Dec 8. Well past the sometimes heard 1200*; first
noted at 1437 and still on at 1603+; usual SIBC format (not a
Wantok FM relay); no IDs; non-stop pop songs; commercial
announcement with promo for "Low Price Enterprises," in English;
mostly fair.

Re: AIR Aizawl & Wantok FM 96.3 relay Ron Howard - Dec 09, 2016 18:32 UTC No.1956
INDIA. 5050, AIR Aizawl, 1604-1630*, on Dec 9, with a special
program in English about a festival in "Nagaland" (must be about
the Hornbill Festival going on now in Kohima); several speeches;
one about being "morally upright" (today is International Anti-
corruption Day); one speaker was from "Nagaland University";
announcer taking about the "Naga culture and customs"; played
some indigenous Naga music/chanting; not very readable, but in
the clear, as China (Beibu Bay Radio) had already signed off. My
audio of Naga music at http://goo.gl/QUDus7 .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM 96.3 relay, 1453-1528,
Dec 9. Yet another extended broadcast of playing non-stop pop
songs in English, except for the usual frequent SA/IDs; mostly fair.
Seems the earthquake there was not too bad, as I have not heard
any special programming about it.

day with better than normal reception; pop songs (Ellie Goulding with
"Love Me Like You Do," etc.); had been wondering if they had any
coverage of their earthquakes - YES, 0446-0454 info about what
"NGOs and the government" were doing to aid people after yesterday's
big quake, and info about today's quake, in Pijin; back to pop songs
(Eric Prydz with "Call On Me"); 0500-0505 ABC news & weather (aid
being sent to Indonesia after this weeks quake there, Solomon Islands
hit with another quake today, etc.); after 0505 no longer // to RA, instead
went to their own music program till suddenly off at 0511*.

VANUATU. 7259.95, R. Vanuatu, 0531-0634, Dec 10. Surprised to
hear them so early and with decent signal; 0531-0617 SA/ID and into long
interview in vernacular; pop songs; series of SA/IDs at 0621 (something
like - Monday and Saturday, Radio Vanuatu, Voice of Tomorrow); nice
Pacific Islands song and "Can't Help Falling in Love with You" by Elvis
Presley; a very good day for them.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS,
suddenly on at *1235, on Dec 19, with the start of
the Monday only SAARC (The South Asian
Association for Regional Cooperation) news
bulletin in English; mixing with CNR1; item about
Friday's (Dec 16) national celebration of the 46th
"Victory Day" festivities, with President Hamid and
Prime Minister Hasina placing wreaths at the
"National Memorial" to pay tribute to the martyred
freedom fighters; 1242 "This is the end of the SAARC
news bulletin" (did not spell out SAARC, but pronounced
it as a word); into Bangla; at 1252 brief weather conditions
in English ("partly cloudy" and gave temperatures), which
is a daily feature.

Any Monday that I am able to make out specific SAARC

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1150-1156*,
Dec 19. Very nice to have them back on the air again,
after being off for awhile; DJ playing xmas song "Joy to

Dec 19, for the first time, able to make out 5979 // 3990, at
1317, in Chinese and playing EZL music.

7415, Firedragon (music jamming), 1636, Dec 18; fair-good
against R. Free Asia.

KOREA SOUTH. 5900, Numbers Station V24, 1606-
1608*, Dec 18. Numbers given in Korean.

MADAGASCAR. 5007.68-5007.75v, R. Madagasikara
(presumed), on Dec 18, with moderate drifting; 1457-1600*.

Thorsten Hallmann has recently noted *1700v, so it looks
like they are just off the air for an hour (1600-1700). Checked
if they went to another frequency, but 7105 was silent (last
heard during the 2010 World Cup football/soccer matches
on a regular basis, but not since then) and unable to hear
6135, due to the jamming by N. Korea and broadcast of
Voice of Freedom via S. Korea.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Salam FM, 1510-1602*, Dec 17. Nice
anomaly, as normally this is used as filler after 1500 till they
suddenly pull the plug shortly after that; in vernacular; played
a lot of EZL music; some phone calls; many SA/IDs; better than
fair.

nice African accents. It's almost like a theme song for
them, as they play it so often. My audio of the Xmas
song, recorded in 2015, at http://goo.gl/vmeGn0 . This
is the third year in a row that I have heard Zambia playing
this special song. Noted 0346*, going off suddenly in

ANGOLA[non-log]. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola, on Dec
28, as Glenn has already reported, they were clearly off the air
at 0310 & 0344.

ETHIOPIA. 6030, Radio Oromiya (presumed), 1540, Dec 27. Nice
surprise to find definite HOA music here underneath the usual CNR1;
poor, but not too bad.

7236.89v, R. Ethiopia (presumed), 1552, Dec 27. Thanks to Glenn
Hauser's tip, heard a station here with frequent drifting; best in USB;
JBA.

INDIA[non-log]. 4970, AIR Shillong, on Dec 27 was off the air at
1321 & 1356, which was a good day for other Indian propagation.

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1522, Dec 27.
Xmas song "Jingle Bells" in English; fair; still on at 1634.

4869.9, Pro 1 RRI Wamena, 1235-1310, Thursday, Dec 22. Checked
for the Kang Guru Indonesia ("KGI") program, but clearly not on at
this time. Last reported on Thursday, Nov 24 (1232-1302) by myself
and by Atsunori Ishida (http://rri.jpn.org/). Needs more Thursday
monitoring.

MADAGASCAR[non-log]. 5007v, R. Madagasikara, at 1445 and
subsequent checking around 5010, on Dec 27, found them off the air.
Only heard AIR on 5010.0.

NEW ZEALAND. 7355, RNZI, 1333 + 1440, Dec 27, heard with
QRM that sounded like stilted Chinese. Assume might be KNLS
(Alaska)? Badly mixing together.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA[non-log]. 7324.95 Wantok Radio Light.
Dec 27, at 1408, when a clear frequency on 7325, still no signal
from WRL; has been a long time now since I last heard them.

RUSSIA. 7345 // 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, at 0251, on
Dec 28, with good strength open carrier; at 0300, no IS and no
time pips; started with "Radio Sakha" ID; light RRI QRM, signing
on at 0300 (with IS before 0300); 0450 the usual time for them to
give "Radio Sakha" ID, followed by series of ads (one with rooster
crowing); off with IS (Jew's harp) and time pips (4+1) at 0500*; 7345
many times stronger than 7295, which after 0330 was unusable.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020 [non-log], on Dec 27 (and other days
recently), at 1247, noted off the air, so not as often with extended
broadcasting past 1200.

9545, SIBC, 0433-0448 & 0501*, Dec 28. Better than normal reception;
DJ in Pijin, but commercial announcements in English (Enterprises Ltd.
for general hardware and construction supplies - "Your right choice for
the right quality"); playing pop Pacific Islands music; many time checks;
suddenly off during the ABC news in English, which was very readable
and // RA on 15240 // 15415 // 17840.

6145, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze via Yamata (Japan), on Dec 29 
(Thursday). Special year end program in Japanese, recorded
back on Dec 10 (Youtube at http://goo.gl/sMw2Id), preempted
the usual English on Thursday; *1300-1400*, with first half
announcers and monologues, with second half an orchestra
playing variety of music (Xmas song "Jingle Bells," etc.); nice
reception with no N. Korea jamming; SA/IDs "JSR Shiokaze";
program co-sponsored by "Furusato No Kaze" ("Wind of
Hometown").

After Shiokaze sign off at 1400*, clearly heard the start of RTI,
later joined by CNR1 jamming; both of which totally blocked
PBS Qinghai.

BTW - As always, very much appreciate Hiroshi's website

ANGOLA. 4949.73, R. Nacional de Angola, Dec 29, back on the
air after being silent yesterday; believe propagation was not a factor
in yesterdays non-reception, as there was not even a faint carrier
heard; today nicely above threshold level audio; very respectable
signal strength; 0243-0300 pop music; 0300 with time pips (4),
news with sound bite and ending with clear SA/ID; 0305 till tuned out
at 0350, with non-stop music, all of which sounded to me like soca/
calypso genre of Caribbean music; very entertaining.

ETHIOPIA. R. Ethiopia (presumed), continuing to drift around on
Dec 29. At 1443, seemed about 7236.25v, with HOA music, while at
1540, seemed about 7236.63v; much better reception today than on
on Dec 27.

INDONESIA. 4869.9, Pro 1 RRI Wamena, 1256, Thursday, Dec 29.
Tentatively with the Kang Guru Indonesia ("KGI") program, but with
very poor reception due to strong OTH radar.

MADAGASCAR[non-log]. 5007v, R. Madagasikara, at 1539 &
1550, Dec 29, not hear anywhere around 5010, only AIR on 5010.0.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1543, Thursday, Dec 29.
NHK's "Friends Around the World" with interview of Dr. Tomohiko
Sugishita about African medicine; repeat of a Sept program; very
readable; will be repeated again tomorrow (Friday); played AIDS
prevention song "Ndimakukonda" ("I Love You").

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, SIBC, 0402-0501*, Dec 29. Another
day with better than normal reception; DJ in Pijin playing pop and
C&W songs; commercial announcements in English (car rental,
general hardware supplies, etc.); several spots about "School is out";
0500 ABC news (death of Debbie Reynolds, etc.) till suddenly off.
Normally not heard so well, especially not this early! Winter propagation?

ABC's "Triple J Unearthed"; strong signal, but unable to hear

Unearthed. We love Australian music," "Triple J Unearthed,
the best sounds from your own backyard," "The best new
music from your own backyard, Triple J Unearthed," etc.
Break at 1500 for ABC news.

Triple J Unearthed was established in 1995, and clearly aiming for
the younger audience. Website - https://www.triplejunearthed.com/
which has audio streaming.

ZAMBIA. Dec 30, heard 5915 (R. One/ZNBC), 1607-1616, via long path;
in vernacular; under a strong Myanmar Radio also on 5915;
clearly Zambia, as they constantly were playing short snippets of
the Xmas song in English - "Happy Christmas, Happy New Year."
Have been hearing Zambia here most of this month at this time,
but today the first for positive confirmation of identification. So
from now till New Year's Eve, they will undoubtedly be playing
a lot of this song!

BTW - Seems Myanmar has a much later sign off time here, but
when is it? 1557* has CRI signing off here, leaving Myanmar to
dominate Zambia. My local sunrise was at 1520 UT.
