Ron-san, ARIGATOUGOZAIMASU !!

My location, international bands such as 25mb and 31mb, the propagation
is bad and it seems to be in winter.
Is it due to abnormality of solar flare?

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio. Sept 12, a day with very respectable
reception from this low powered station; 1156-1436; strongest feature
continues to be the old Radio Australia's "Waltzing Matilda," which
were always well heard at 1156, 1206 (end of news), 1218, 1240,
1249, 1305 (end of news), 1337, 1348 (end of news, which mentioned
"suburban Melbourne," etc.), 1357, 1406 (end of news - please listen
to my audio) and 1417; sometimes able to make out the Dacelo
novaeguineae; new email address - ozyradio@gmail.com given with
SAs; mostly playing pop songs ("Hooked On A Feeling," etc.); my local
sunrise was at 1347 UT.

With today's improved reception of Ozy Radio, also came improved
signal from China (Beibu Bay Radio) on 5050, which caused some
QRM for Ozy Radio, so was forced to listen in LSB for the best results.

Considerable QRN (static) and only bits & pieces readable on my audio
ending with Dacelo novaeguineae, Waltzing Matilda and "Ozy Radio" SA,
at http://goo.gl/2krPf9 .



Re: Email from Ozy Radio - Ron Howard Sep 12, 2017 22:41 UTC No.2551
Sent a report via email to ozyradio@gmail.com , telling Craig
(owner and operator of Ozy Radio) about my listening to Ozy
Radio today while parked at the beach. My "radio shack" picture
that I sent him - http://goo.gl/HJCSt2 , which is where I string
out my long wire antenna along the wooden fence that I park next to.

Craig's nice reply came back in just five hours.

Ron

"G'day, Ron

Thanks for the reception report. It is amazing what 500 watts does.
We now include the Australian Independent National news and also
a 10 minute world round up.

I bought a Pioneer shortwave car radio about 2 months ago, but I still
haven't installed it. Maybe today. Thanks for your report and next time
I'm in the state's we will have a beer and throw a shrimp on the BBQ.

Stay tuned,

Re: PNG power outage - Ron Howard Sep 13, 2017 12:55 UTC No.2554
BOUGAINVILLE/PNG[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville and 3260,
NBC Madang (PNG) were both off the air Sept 13, when checking
1018+; rare for both of them to be silent at the same time; this was
also confirmed by Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), earlier at 0940.

Probably due to the PNG Power Ltd痴 "Easipay" services, that crashed
on Monday, leaving thousands without power. So maybe NBC stations
were using that system to pre-pay for their power?

Re: Korea - Voice of Freedom now jammed on 5920 kHz. - Ron Howard Sep 23, 2017 15:02 UTC No.2576

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom. It was on Sept 7 that VOF
moved to this clear (non-jammed) frequency (ex: 6045); today (Sept 23)
is the first day North Korea moved the pulsating noise jamming away
from 6045 (now a clear frequency), down to this frequency; fortunately
the VOF signal is much stronger than the jamming, so reception was
mostly fair; first noted at 0941 and still jamming at 1414+.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on Sept 23 & 24,
from 1115+, certainly only RRI Palangkaraya here, with NBC silent,
but 3260 (NBC Madang) was on the air.

INDONESIA. 3325, RRI Palangkaraya, Sept 23 anomaly; 1203 without
the usual Jakarta news relay; instead almost sounded like a religious
program (Christian?), some slow tempo singing and what certainly sounded
like non-stop preaching till 1245; not the normal format at all; also the local
news coverage at 1400 was dropped today. Rare for them to cancel both
news segments!

BTW - Have been interested this year to read there is increased discussions
of moving the capital from Jakarta to Palangkaraya. Earlier news stories at
http://goo.gl/iM1r7R and http://goo.gl/4GPJ5V . Does this have anything to
do with this station being the last RRI station on SW?

Voice of Indonesia, 9524.95, continues to be silent through Sept 24.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, with first day of N. Korea
jamming here on Sept 23.

Sept 24, on 5920, at 1052, 1100 & 1143 heard VOF with no jamming,
but at 1148 the N. Korean jamming was here, just like yesterday; then
later at 1252 VOF was clear of any jamming. Seemed a problem today
in N. Korea with keeping this jamming on?

My audio at http://goo.gl/5XvUxh of "Bughan-e jjang" segment ("North
Korea's amazing") at 1100; audio with one minute of Sept 23 reception,
along with jamming and one minute of same segment Sept 24 without
the jamming. As always, am very grateful to Amano-san (Japan) for his
continuing support with the Korean stations.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, SIBC, 0431-0457*, Sept 22. DJ in Pijin;
pop Pacific Islands songs; again timer cut them off at 0457*.

Sept 25. Continuing to be off the air; only RRI Palangkaraya heard.

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM Limbang, via Kajang, 1315, Sept 25
(Monday). Many "Wai FM Limbang" SAs during this 1315-1400 Monday
and Thursday segment; in past years always SA just as "Limbang FM"
during this time period, but Limbang FM must have been taken over by
Wai FM this year; in vernacular; played mostly pop songs; fair-good.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. The Monday edition of "Say It In
English" always starts earlier than the Wednesday repeated show; on
Sept 25 (Mon.) heard complete program 1220-1233; this weeks
adventures (dialogue) of "Tom," dealing with "Mr. Harris" wanting him
to take a business trip to "Guildford," so he drives there along with "Kate,"
but he is speeding and gets stopped by the police; very readable.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1157*, Sept 25. So they have set
the timer on both frequencies to cut off at xx57* (9545, at 0457*).

4770-LSB, VC01 (Chinese military numbers station). On Sept 27, at

FIJI. 558, Radio Fiji One (presumed). Sept 27, at 1208 with soft
EZL Pacific Islands music/singing; 1215 announcer, but too weak to
make out language; the usual strong San Francisco QRM from 560
(KSFO).

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom. On Sept 27, with carrier
already on at 0850, as well as the North Korean jamming; 0857 start
of audio; 0859 distinctive station jingle (SJ) - "jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli,
jayu-e soli bangsong" (Voice of Truth, Voice of Hope, Voice of Freedom
Bangsong), followed by time pips. Thanks to Amano-san, this station
can now be fairly easily SA via this singing jingle; the jamming here
is rather ineffectual, with VOF coming through the jamming fairly well.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, Sept 29, at 1140. 
Pop songs played by DJ; 1200 news in English, followed by
"NBC Radio" promo; suddenly cut off at 1205*, leaving RRI
Palangkaraya nicely in the clear and was somewhat stronger
than NBC when they were mixing together. Glenn reported
in DXLD yg:

"INDONESIA. 3325, Sept 29 at 1205 news in Indonesian from
RRI Palangkaraya, apparently alone, altho 10 minutes earlier
Bougainville seemed still on too. 1233, YL with love song in
English, 1235 YL & OM dialog in Indonesian (Glenn Hauser,
OK)"

BTW - Today had no signal from NBC Madang (3260).

CHINA. 7325, CRI. Recently off the air 1050 to past 1230+, but
Sept 30 back again at 1211.

GOA. 15185, AIR via Panaji, 0333, Sept 29. Fair reception with nice
subcontinent music and singing; 0340 into Hindi. Didn't think to check
for // 15120 via Bengaluru.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, on Sept 30, found
program out of sync; instead of the normal bell/gong being rung
slowly three times at 1303, today was at 1311. Am hearing this daily
with good reception and never any N. Korea jamming, but occasionally
with OTH radar QRM.

VOH's three different programs in Korean:

4885 - "Radio Broadcasting Guide."

6350 - "Hope plaza of my brothers" or "Hope Plaza of my brothers who
have been defeated" (thanks very much to Amano-san for this info).

3985 // 5995 // 6250 // 9100 - Their main program.

Only 4885 and 9100 remain unjammed by N. Korea.

Voice of Freedom, on 5920, with another day (Sept 30) of just a strong
carrier and never any audio, but with the usual pulsating noise jamming
from N. Korea. The jamming is the same as was formerly on ex: 6045,
which since Sept 23 has been a clear frequency with no jamming at all.

Re: 6090 kHz. with different Ethiopian IS's - Ron Howard Oct 03, 2017 06:12 UTC No.2604
To recap my recent interval signals (Ethiopian), as heard on 6090 kHz.;

Oct 3, from 0255 to 0300, finally heard the Radio Amhara IS.
http://goo.gl/9yN12V .

Oct 1, at 0254+, with Radio Oromiya IS. http://goo.gl/wjZFN3 .

Sept 29, at 0254+, with Radio Fana IS. http://goo.gl/3e1MXn .

Again, I am indebted to Dave Kernick (http://intervalsignals.net/index.htm)
for his continuing guidance.

The above receptions were made possible with the absence of the
Caribbean Beacon, via Anguilla. Is not clear why these were all
different, as certainly Radio Amhara is the only one scheduled to be
on 6090, during this time period.

Further monitoring needed while the Caribbean Beacon is off the air.

AUSTRALIA[non-log]. 5045, Ozy Radio. Since Sept 17, has been
silent through Oct 3.

BHUTAN/CHINA. 6035, BBS & PBS Yunnan, on Oct 3:

BBS: 1125-1153* cut off; DJ clearly in English (slight accent)
playing pop songs in English; mixing with PBS, but BBS slightly
stronger today.

PBS Yunnan: 1122-1203* cut off; in Chinese; very poor underneath
BBS; in the clear after 1153.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1134-1148*, Oct 2. DJ with
pop songs; Beach Boys - "Surfin' USA" and John Denver - "Leaving On A
Jet Plane" (rather an ironic song, as John Denver died in a plane crash
here, just off the coast, in Monterey Bay, very close to where I park to do
my DXing). http://www.cnn.com/US/9710/13/denver.nc/ .

BTW - NBC Madang (3260) cut off at 1205*, on Oct 3.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. On Oct 3, again found
their programming well out of sync from the normal timing; instead of the
usual bell/gong being rung slowly three times at 1303, today was at 1244.

5920, Voice of Freedom. On Oct 3, continuing with only their carrier (no
audio at all), as well as the usual North Korean jamming.

Former VOF ex-frequencies today:

5940 - Clear frequency.
6020 - Decent signal from Vietnam, with indigenous music/chanting.
6045 - Clear frequency; former jamming here moved to 5920, on Sept 23.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (12) - Ron Howard Oct 11, 2017 15:03 UTC No.2621
As Hiroyuki-san noted, SIBC today was on 9545. I noted their 
cut off there at 1152* (before they even got to the "Evening
Devotional"). Nothing on 5020 today (1018 to 1300+).

No Voice of Indonesia at all today on 9525.95.

Good news - as Hiroyuki-san has already reported - Voice
of Freedom, on 5920, today (Oct 11) again heard with strong
audio over the jamming (checking 1001 through 1322).

PBS Yunnan (6035) cut off at 1200*, with no BBS/Bhutan present.

Usual patriotic song 釘agimu Negeri・(For You Our Country -
http://goo.gl/hFdDwv), at 1229, to end the Jakarta news relay
via RRI Palangkaraya (3325).

The Wednesday edition (Oct 11) of "Say It In English" started at
1245 via Myanmar Radio, on 5985; a repeat of Monday's (heard
1218-1231) adventures (dialogue) of "Tom." Wed. program always
starts later than Monday's.

Yesterday (Oct 10), had definite Calgary (Canada) - CFVP relaying
CKMX (AM 1060), on 6030, at 1318, with clear mention of "Calgary
Stampede," underneath a strong CNR1 (China).

Also yesterday with AIR via Delhi-Kingsway on 7555.77, with nice exotic
Tibetan music/chanting/singing; yes, is scheduled to be in Tibetan, but
what I heard was non-stop music 1251+.

Also noted SIBC (9545), on Oct 12, with cut off at 0509*, but
didn't stay around for their brief return. Certainly not the usual
SIBC format that I'm use to; 0445-0509* with non-stop discussion;
poor over here on the west coast. Distance from Honiara to
Monterey is about 9,587 km. Distance from Honiara to Mangawhai
is about 3,311 km. Running past their recently heard 0457*.

SIBC 9545 ran till 0509:15 UTC today - a very good signal with some
form of parliamentary discussion on law and order, till abruptly off.

I spoke too soon - at 0511:30 UTC, SIBC returned to the air on 9545.

Off again 0514:30 UTC.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom. On Oct 12, with
good signal strength to cut through the jamming by North Korea;
1500 distinctive station jingle ("jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e
soli bangsong" - Voice of Truth, Voice of Hope, Voice of Freedom
Bangsong); jamming ended about 1503, so N. Korea clearly knows
the VOF schedule; VOF ended their audio at 1506, after which there
was just a carrier (dead air) till past 1510+.

Nice catch from California, Ron-san!
Correctly this audio is VOF.
This audio sounds South Korean VOF with Pip Jamming of North Korea.
It continues with Female ending FREQ & SKD announcement, VOF SJ, Female ending NEXT
START HOUR announcemen and Ending music - "Beautiful Country" according to the reference article.

What a great audio!

CHINA. 5975, CNR8, 1458-1505*, Oct 13. In Korean till 1500,
then in Chinese till off; good reception.

ETHIOPIA. 7236.4-.6v, R. Ethiopia (presumed), 1414, Oct 13.
First just heard with carrier (no audio detected); by 1450 had
definite HOA music; poor; best in USB; as usual frequency drifted
upward.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom. Yesterday, on Oct 12,
had N. Korea jamming ending at 1503, with VOF audio ending at 1506.
So today (Oct 13) the jamming ended at 1506, leaving just the strong
carrier (dead air) of VOF (don't know when the VOF audio ended today).

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1352-1400*, Oct 13. HOA music;
went off with the usual marching band National Anthem; poor; ham QRM.

"Focus on China" program in English; started with pop song; ID &
singing "Voice of Strait, Focus on China" jingle; program consisted
of the audio feed from the CCTV 9 documentary ("part 8") about
Hangzhou's West Lake. Video at http://goo.gl/JzgN9m .

West Lake is my favorite place to visit in China. Have been there at
least a half a dozen times, as it's so beautiful. Is an easy trip from
Shanghai, especially via the high speed train.

ETHIOPIA. 7236.35-.47v, R. Ethiopia (presumed), 1412-1450, Oct 14.
Rather surprised to find this doing so well; via long path, with announcers,
various HOA music and an interview; poor; best in USB. My audio at

BHUTAN/CHINA. 6035, BBS & PBS Yunnan, on Oct 15:

BBS: 1140-1154* cut off; DJ in English (always on very brief);
pop songs. mixing with PBS.

PBS Yunnan: 1140-1154; in Chinese; underneath BBS; in the clear
after 1154.

ERITREA. 7140.0, VOBME 1 (presumed), 1437-1505, Oct 15.
Announcers and some HOA music; hit with strong white noise (or
DRM?) jamming at 1505, which was 5 minutes after the same type
jamming started on 7181.5.

7181.5, VOBME 2 (presumed), 1437-1500, Oct 15. Program of on-air
phone calls; hit with strong white noise (or DRM?) jamming at 1500.

what sounded to me like an interval signal? My audio http://goo.gl/zeUHYo .

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. Oct 15 heard about two
minutes out of sync from their normal programming, as bell/gong slowly
rung at 1305, not the normal 1303. Strong signal and no jamming here
as usual.

Voice of Freedom, 5920. On Oct 15, at 1432 heard one of my favorite
K-pop songs (Psy with "Gangnam Style"); light N. Korea jamming.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1159-1205*, Oct 15. Sunday
religious (Christian) songs till cut off. Seems they no longer carry the Stacy
Rose Sunday show ("Island Praise"), which in the past started about 1201.

U S A. 4875-USB, Air Force MARS net, 1211-1222*, Oct 15. Seems this
is a Sunday only net, as I note that last years logs by Glenn and myself on
Sept 4 & Oct 23 were both on Sun.; net managed by the usual AFF4FL,
asking for questions or comments, but I was unable to hear the other
people he was talking with; he said he would not be on next Sunday.

1139-1200 variety of songs; SA "Radio Vanuatu, Voice of (Bong
Yumi?)"; 1200-1212 religious (Christian) preaching ("God knows
everything," etc.); 1212-1230 non-stop religious songs in English;
1230 montage of songs along with "Radio Vanuatu, Voice of (Bong
Yumi?)" SA; 1231-1301 program of older EZL hit songs (Elton John
with "Daniel," Carpenters with "Top of the World," etc.); 1301 seemed
the news; started to get some China QRM. Checked for 3944.2 over
the weekend, but no trace of a carrier, so seems their long standing
silence there continues.

today Malaysia with no SW presence. So another country that has

So a change of transmitters.

KOREA SOUTH. Voice of Freedom - recently changing
frequencies:

6045 (ex: 5920), Oct 19-22; during all these days had jamming
from N. Korea (leaving ex: 5920 free of any jamming).

5920 (ex: 6045), Oct 23 & 24; VOF free of any jamming here;
0932+; jamming still up on 6045.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0945-1001,
Oct 23. Mostly chatting in vernacular; 0951 usual format of
commercial announcements and promos (believe in Russian);
1000 only time pips (very unusual not to have their distinctive

Re: Australia - Ron Howard Oct 25, 2017 18:10 UTC No.2664
AUSTRALIA. For many years 4835 kHz. was the frequency
of ABC Alice Springs NT, but that was shut down earlier this
year and is now extinct. Craig Allen (owner and operator of
the low powered "Ozy Radio," that was recently successfully
testing on 5045 kHz., till off the air since Sept 7), now has
the use of 4835 kHz.. He indicated to me "I was able to
acquire this frequency off the government."

http://goo.gl/tkBTEU and http://goo.gl/TmfoUS
"Status: Not Granted"

Craig inquired as to what the current situation for me was
regarding any 4835 reception. My reply:

"Here on the California coast the only station I occasionally
do hear now on 4835 kHz. is All India Radio - Gangtok
(Sikkim). Majority of days I can only hear their weak carrier,
but when there is very good propagation, I can hear some
faint audio. Here is a recording I made earlier this year -
http://goo.gl/Jw2yxo . They play nice subcontinent music.
As you can hear, even on a very good day, they have rather
poor reception via their 10 kW transmitter. AIR Gangtok
schedule: 0100-0415 UTC & 1030-1600 UTC.

Can only guess that Ozy Radio would have no real problem
on most days of being heard here in California over AIR
Gangtok. It is rare that reception of AIR Gangtok on 4835 kHz.
is reported in the SW listening press, unless from within India
or that general area."

Would indeed be wonderful to again have an Australian station
on 4835. Wish Craig good luck with his endeavors!

Thanks to Ian, who noted my typo! Should be - "Since 17 
September, have found 5045 kHz. (Ozy Radio) silent
through to today." Sorry.

Ian also noted "Licence Details" for 4835 kHz. already
updated to - "Status: Granted."

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (12) - Ron Howard Oct 26, 2017 20:34 UTC No.2673
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1136-1157*,
Oct 26. Long discussion in Pidgin about the "referendum";
mixing with RRI Palangkaraya, which was slightly stronger.

Recent news story regarding the Bougainville independence
referendum - http://goo.gl/6HrUQB , which may not happen in
June 2019, as planned.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260) cut off at 1202*, on Oct 26; just
as the news in English started; a better than average day for
them with above threshold level audio.

CHINA. 6185, China Huayi Broadcast Co. (CHBC) (very
tentative), 1248, Oct 26. Has been a long time since I last
checked on this; signal was mostly decent level carrier, but
very little audio; seemed to be them, but nothing like the
good modulation I heard in past years.

Audio of good reception in 2013 - http://goo.gl/rXmSug
Nice looking CHBC QSL card - http://goo.gl/90wg0F
