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.

Re: Russia - Radio Sakha - Ron Howard May 04, 2017 14:18 UTC No.2223
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 schönen 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

-22:29-
97.0 MHz changed into Echo of Unification again while it is sending KCBS time signal.

hahaha Thanks Kowalski-san !!

Since my parents died, because I am subject to mourning (an event in Japan),
I am changing the nickname only during that period (until the end of May).

Re: Korea - Voice of Freedom on new 5920 kHz. - Ron Howard May 15, 2017 15:17 UTC No.2241
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



Re: Korea - Voice of Freedom on new 5920 kHz. - Ron Howard May 15, 2017 16:28 UTC No.2242
Seems I may have heard a test transmission of Voice of Freedom.

Per Hiroshi's web site http://hiroshi.mediacat-blog.jp/e122168.html
(in Japanese), there are a few new frequencies (5920 & 6020)
registered with the HFCC. Thanks very much to Chulsu at

for his feedback.

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

Re: Bougainville & PNG - Ron Howard May 17, 2017 13:58 UTC No.2248
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 0904-1200*, May 17.
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.

1000-1011: Usual PNG bird call; news 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
at all), etc.

1200*: Suddenly off.

My unedited audio of sign off announcement and pop song till cut off,
at http://goo.gl/42ZyaH .

Most of today's programs seemed to deal with the upcoming national
election being held in Bougainville and PNG, in late June. Imagine we
will be hearing more SW activity from them as the election approaches.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1203*, May 17. Cut off

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

Have to try to also remember to check on 7345 kHz., as CNR1 is

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 .

4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1147; QRM from strong OTH

with no QRM at all. Have never heard this frequency jammed by

White noise jamming is also now here, at 1145.

Nice catch! VOH sound jingle on 9100 kHz at 1215 UTC, Ron-san.

Your audio from 00:05 to the end, it's called SJ; "~ Radio, Huimang e meari.", and SA/ID; "Huimang e meari bangsong ip nida, V-O-H."

*"Huimang e meari" in Korean. = "Echo of Hope" in English.

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.

Where did the high frequency (6250, 6348, 9100) version go?
Is it different from day to day?

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (10) - Kowalski Jun 03, 2017 03:02 UTC No.2322
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.

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.

now have frequent, brief generic spots with no SA/IDs.

Re: Russia - Radio Sakha - Ron Howard Jun 08, 2017 15:15 UTC No.2336
RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. Recently had been 
observing them consistently going off the air 1200-1201*.

June 8, with anomaly of 1208-1300*; therefor blocking reception
of Thazin Radio (Myanmar); 1208-1245 with all traditional singing;
1245 changed to segment of pop songs; 1248 brief SA/ID (anomaly
to not have any commercial announcements following SA/ID) and pop
music continued; 1257 National Anthem (first time I have heard this!);
off with no IS nor time pips.

So a special one day only anomaly?

CHINA. 3990 // 5970, Gannan PBS, 1315, June 11. Finally able
to clearly hear them //; in Chinese; seems ex: 5979 has really been
abandoned.

KOREA SOUTH. 5940, Voice of Freedom (clandestine), through
June 12, at 1247, still unjammed here; jamming still going on at ex:
5920 and ex: 6135.

MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, 1229*, June 11. There has
been a recent change in sign off format here; for a long time they
always closed with their usual indigenous theme music, but now
is // to 5985 and both with singing SA/ID with their three different
"kilohertz" frequencies before going off the air, while 5985 continues
on.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, 1230, June 9. News/stock market report/
sports in English; clearly // AIR Chennai (4920, with PBS Xizang still off
the air) // AIR Shillong (4970) and // AIR Jeypore (5040). Certainly is not
every day that I can hear Gangtok so well.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM, via SIBC, 1200-1244*,
June 12. Extended broadcast; 1159 end of NA and deadair till start
of relay; almost fair; frequent generic spots ("Makes me happy. Turns
me on," etc.), but no Wantok FM SA/IDs as such; played all pop Pacific
Islands songs. My local sunrise was at 1248 UT.

June 11 (Sunday), 1230-1308*; extended broadcast; non-stop pop
songs (Tina Turner - "What's Love Got To Do With It," etc.), instead of
the usual all religious songs.

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1417, June 12. As they have done
in past years, they are now on the air 1400-1500, just during Ramadan;
their usual schedule is to be off the air during 14-15; heard with HOA
music and a call in program; weak.

ZAMBIA[non-log]. 5915, R. One/ZNBC1, through 0432, June 12. They
continue to be silent, as Bill Bingham (RSA) and I have both monitored
this past week; seems like a significant problem, unrelated to the former
"load shedding."



Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (10) - Ron Howard Jun 13, 2017 16:27 UTC No.2344

INDONESIA. Change of frequency to 9526.0, VOI, ex: 9524.95,
at 1358, on June 13, with full SA/ID in English; into Indonesian
segment.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6165, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata,
*1405-1435*, June 13. In Japanese; usual intro and closing for
Shiokaze, but main body of the program is "Furusato No Kaze"
("Wind of Hometown"), thanks to Hiroshi for this info; CNR6 has
returned to the air here, so some QRM.

KOREA SOUTH. On June 13:

Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1348:

3985 // 5995 // 6250, all were jammed;

// 4885 // 6350 // 9100, all with no jamming.

Voice of the People, at 1353:

3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, all were jammed.

Voice of Freedom, on 5940, with no jamming; strong signal today at 1331.

My last report for a while! 

Off to beautiful Canmore, Canada, for vacation (http://goo.gl/ocvldL).
My wife and I were there last June and we liked it so much we are
going back again.

Re: VOI frequency - Ron Howard Jun 13, 2017 19:13 UTC No.2346
Thanks very much to Wolfie, who today accurately measured the
new VOI frequency. He provides:

"Checked the Voice of Indonesia Cimanggis program on upper
channel flank, noted at 1752 UT in eastern Thailand at S=6 rather
weak signal on exact 9525.940 kHz."
