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!

Ron, listening at Asilomar State Beach, California



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
sunrise 0319."

Oct 31. Thanks to Rob Wagner SAing the station QRMing CNR2
on 6155. Today tuned in to hear a good signal from CNR2 in the
clear at 1251.

pop songs; 1204-1209 YL with the news (did not start at ToH);
still poor, but getting better; considerable QRN (static). Today
with a different format; after an hour on non-stop listening,
Craig never played "Waltzing Matilda," not even once. My

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
here. Appreciate his timely tip!

Nippon no Kaze, on Nov 1, tuned in at 1303; in Korean; fair reception;
schedule 1300-1330. Nov 2, checked at 1311; noted // 9465 // 9950.

Furusato no Kaze ("Wind of Hometown"), on Nov 1; started at 1330; in

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.

Nov 8. Discussion in Pidgin; pop songs; almost no RRI
QRM today, so reception above the norm.

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:

5940 - Clear frequency.
6020 - Only Vietnam.
6045 - Clear frequency.
6135 - Still with white noise N. Korea jamming, even though

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.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1130,
Nov 13. Nice English & Chinese SA - "S W liu(6) ling(0)

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.

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 .

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
reception 1059, per my audio at http://goo.gl/qYxhs7 . 1200-1400

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,
Dec 6. Their 100 watts doing well against 100kW of CNR1; SA "Funny
10-60 AM" and mentions of "Calgary."

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1326, Dec 6. Noticeably distorted audio.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1204-1213*, Dec 6. News
in English, followed by the audio feed of "NBC Radio" in English; suddenly
off; poor; running somewhat past their normal sign off time.

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
Than I Can Say"; 1339 into vernacular with series of three "Radio Hargeisa"
SAs; later playing HOA music; 1359 usual marching band National Anthem
till 1401*; poor; CW QRM. My audio http://goo.gl/eAgk3L . Rare for me to
hear them above threshold level for the English segment (1320-1340).

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

5985, Myanmar Radio, 1242-1250, Dec 13, Wednesday. Another English

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!

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1238, Dec 17. Usual Sunday "Country

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,
but today unable to hear the AIR IS at 1213.

about today being International Migrants Day; mostly fair.

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

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1225-1243, Dec 21. Mostly
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
World"; 1157, as usually happens at this time, a full ID and frequencies
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
holiday broadcasting? We will see! Also note Bougainville.

Merry Little Christmas," followed by SA of song and phone number
"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
one day anomaly yesterday.
