Happiness is hearing semi-decent 4KZ reception!

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, 1005+, Aug 22, with cut off at 1155:54*. Yet another
day of better than the usual reception; at times semi-readable; nice SA - "now
operates on shortwave on 5-0-5-5 kilohertz in the 60 meter shortwave band,
. . . frequency once again 5-0-5-5 kilohertz"; 1100 national news items - review
of the conviction of Kathleen Megan Folbigg for killing her four children - a three
year old boy and his one year old brother survived for two days in wreckage of a
car crash that killed their mother, the older boy was found wandering along a road,
officers found the wreckage in a ravine - etc.; pop songs played today - Petula
Clark with "Downtown," Ray Charles with "Georgia On My Mind," Sheena Easton
with "For Your Eyes Only," Billy Joel with "Uptown Girl," etc.; would have been
decent reception without the usual QRN (static).

AUSTRALIA. 4835, Ozy Radio, 1211, Aug 23. Mostly pop songs; the Australian 
rock and roll band Rose Tattoo, with "Angry" Anderson - "Born To Be Wild," etc.;
frequent theme music ("Waltzing Matilda"), at 1214, 1219, 1228, 1240; weak with
QRN (static); some news and ads; no QRM from AIR Gangtok.

5055, Radio 4KZ, 0913, Aug 27. Usual pop songs; Tennessee Ernie Ford -
"16 Tons," 5th Dimension - "Last Night, I Didn't Get To Sleep At All," Donovan -
"Catch the Wind," White Plains - "My Baby Loves Lovin'," Olivia Newton-John
and Andy Gibb - "Suddenly," Andy Gibb & Bee Gees - "An Everlasting Love,"
etc.; 1000, with news item about assault on paramedics as the ambulance
officers were treating an unconscious patient and sports item about the Belgian
Grand Prix, along with marine conditions. Recently doing well and would call
this just about semi-readable now. My audio at http://goo.gl/3MmxR4 .

INDONESIA. 7289.92, Pro 1 RRI Nabire, 0824-0852*, Aug 27. Mostly pop
songs; suddenly cut off; their closing time varies a lot. Very listenable! My
audio at http://goo.gl/DqhG5A .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC. For a long time I have been checking
SIBC before 1200 UT and always found their carrier at a decent level, but
no modulation (no trace of any audio). Aug 26 for the first time in a very
long time, actually did have audio above threshold level. Wow! Heard with
Sunday religious programs 1114+, with reception slowly improving till 1148,
when audio dropped down a lot. Still some audio, but not nearly as good as
heard earlier. So seems they must have done some work on their transmitter?
Today noted with 1201*. Aug 27, again with audio as early as 0951, so really
doing better now.

early closing? (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, Etón E1, antenna: 100' long

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS. It will be recalled that last Sunday (Aug 26), this
was heard with a greatly extended broadcast (1340+), so was checking
again on Sept 2 (Sun.). 1139-1200: in English and playing pop songs in
English; 1200-1210*: usual announcer (vernacular) and brief breaks for
indigenous instrumental music at 1200, 1202 and 1209; suddenly off,
leaving China (FM99 relay via Yunnan) in the clear; before 1210 both
mixing together. My local sunrise was at 1339 UT, with Thimphu sunset
at 1221 UT.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap),
clearly off the air on Sept 2, from 0928+; instead note INDONESIA (VOI)
reception.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, per their new schedule
(http://www.vos.com.cn/public/2011-08/05/cms29450article.shtml), the
program in English ("Focus on China" - FOC) is indeed now on the air
Saturday and Sunday (formerly only on Sat.). Observed Sept 2 (Sun.),
at 0944, with an audio feed from a documentary; mostly unreadable;
0952 closing FOC announcement; music till 0955, when switched to
Chinese; FOC not // 4900, but 0955-1000 was //, which is scheduled
for Strait Fishery Meteorology (Channel fishery weather) (please see
http://radio.chobi.net/DX/DXNEWS/?res:32#58 , "Now On The Radio,"
full schedule for both 4900 and 4940); this Sunday didn't sound like a
weather report, as they were playing some music; after 1000 no longer
//. There is a possible new development, as 4940 was not heard when
checking about 0920, so perhaps a new sign on time? Needs more
monitoring.

6035, FM99 relay via Yunnan, on Sept 2, at 1101, with the usual singing
station jingle; contemporary FM format playing some songs in English
(singers with Elton John's song "Your Song," etc.); 1138-1210 noted
mixing with Bhutan (BBS); 1201 again with the same singing station
song.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, 1259, Sept 2. Closing
announcement for the segment in Japanese; 1300 into English; "From
Jakarta, R R I World Service, Voice of Indonesia, English Service . . .
You can listen to our broadcast via shortwave on 9 5 2 5 kilohertz";
today's program schedule; news (Indonesian President and Australian
Prime Minister have reached an agreement on Indonesia-Australia
comprehensive economic partnership, etc.); commentary; congratulation
statement regarding the closing today of the Asian Games; 1318:
"Today in History," item about this date in 1945 (at the close of WWII),
Ho Chi Minh declared the independence for Vietnam, etc.; later an
item about the Voice of Vietnam celebrating their 73rd anniversary of
broadcasting and of the cooperation between RRI and VOV (a search
online produced an actual agreement -
http://pusdatin.rri.co.id/file/docs/1/1497405956Voice%20of%20Vietnam.pdf);
segment "Highlights of the week." This was also heard today by Mick
Delmage, in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada.

MALAYSIA[non-Sarawak]. 9835, Sarawak FM, via Kajang (on the west
coast of the Malaysia peninsular), 1046, Sept 2. Islamic call-to-prayer
broadcast to listeners in Sarawak, for the Maghrib prayer (soon after
sunset, which at Kuching [Sarawak] was at 1042); fair.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut).
1006+, Sept 2. Another Sunday with their usual format; long segment of
preaching in Pidgin and also religious songs.

In light of the item in WOR iog, about the possible reactivation of NBC
Western, I therefor checked on Sept 2, at 1006, all of the 90 meter band,
as well as 3905, with the result that NBC Madang today was the only
active PNG station. The often heard NBC Bougainville (3325) was silent
today. My last reception of NBC Western, was on 3305 kHz., back in
March, 2012 and heard with a positive SA for "N B C Western."

NBC Western is named for the "Western Province" in southwestern PNG.
Have to wonder what ever happened to the Radio Fly SW transmitters
(3915 & 5960 kHz.), at Kiunga, in the North Fly district, that were owned
and operated by the Ok Tedi Mining Ltd.? It was in Aug 2012, that I last
heard Radio Fly on 3915. They have been silent for many years now.
Would think NBC would look into the possibility of buying the transmitters
if they were still operational? Roseanne (“Rosie”) Kulupi (former Radio Fly
radio technician and announcer) left the station many years ago and I have
lost tract of what the current situation is with the Radio Fly transmitters. Nice
picture of Rosie up on Mt. Robinson, with some of the communications techs.
In the background are some of Ok Tedi's facilities to process the mine's gold
and copper - https://app.box.com/s/uhm382tbyzy84fhvss7q .

Radio Fly reception was often enjoyed here on the west coast, so must
have had very good reception throughout the Western Province. My 2012
audio clip - https://app.box.com/s/9206adc824dac8c36043 .

CHINA. Voice of Strait, on Sept 4, noted 4940 with new sign on time of *0940
(suddenly on); while 4900 had *0941 sign on. From 0955 to 1000, both // with
the report of the Strait Fishery Meteorology (Channel fishery weather), which
ended with a pop song at 0958; at 1000 the usual time pips and no longer //.

Again started // at 1055, again with the marine weather for the strait, with pop
song at 1058; at 1100 the usual time pips, but 1100+ continued on //.

Recently VOS has gone through several changes to their schedule, so probably
should be monitored for a while to confirm the changes. My audio of the five
minute segment (marine weather and song) at http://goo.gl/SFcCNh .

A native speaker of Mandarin Chinese listened to my audio and found "It's the
weather forecast about the strait in the next 18 hours. Talked about wind, waves,
temperature, and the weather for the next two days."

minute after the hour (1201 & 1301) and followed shortly by the
station slogan in English, which sounds to me like "traveling with
the sound of Shangri-la." BUT today heard with two different
audio feeds, both mixing very badly together; by 1300 feel
confident that the UNID audio sounded like Chinese, so strongly
suspect Yunnan with this double audio feed (each different and
one being FM99). I often monitor 6035, and today this was a first
for me. From 1200+, BBS (Bhutan), when they run past that time,
always has a completely different format than I heard today.

Interesting development.

Mauno Ritola, confirmed today: "Hi Ron, yes, duplicate feed still at 1400."

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, on Sept 6, heard with above threshold level
audio as early as 0750; at 1057 played Tom Jones with "Green, Green
Grass of Home"; into the news, sports, weather; not quite readable today;
1106 SA mentioning on AM, FM and SW.

Recently 4KZ has become a regular station that I enjoy, as they play many
songs I haven't heard in a long time. Sept 5, from 0948, pleasant listening to
Celine Dion - "How Do I Live Without You," The Alan Parsons Project - "Eye
In The Sky," Lionel Richie - "All Night Long," The Mamas & The Papas -
"Creeque Alley," Oak Ridge Boys - "Elvira," Enya - "Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)";
Elton John & Kiki Dee - "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," etc.

Ozy Radio, on 4835, Sept 4, at 1016. Even with OTH radar, CODAR QRM
and QRN (static), was able to have no problem hearing the very distinctive
"Waltzing Matilda," otherwise unusable.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS. Sept 3, till 1157*, mixing with China (FM99 relay via
Yunnan) (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

CHINA. Voice of Strait, on Sept 6. Heard 4900, with *0942 and on 4940, with
*0941, so a new 4940 sign on time.

KOREA SOUTH. first day back to alternate frequency 6045, Voice of Freedom,
ex: 5920; Sept 6; Closing at 0805* (a few seconds before 06) with the very nice
song "aleumdaun nala" (Beautiful Country); carrier remained on till *0858, with
music "Frontier"; then singing station jingle; ToH time pips; fair, with no N. Korea
jamming here yet, so for the next few days this can be enjoyed without jamming.
My edited audio of one minute of the closing song, spliced together with the start
of next segment, at http://goo.gl/cs2ext .

TAIWAN. 9410-USB+carrier, Fu Hsing BS, off the air Sept 4, at 1223 check; however
Sept 3, heard 1209-1301*; in Chinese; various songs in Chinese, as well as from
"The Sound Of Music," the children reprise - "My favorite things"; heavy QRN (static).
As usual I find this is on much less than daily! My audio of closing, with "My Favorite
Things," at http://goo.gl/TNNDhA . Taiwan's other frequency (9774) remains with long
standing silence.

September 7th update:

AUSTRALIA. Radio 4KZ, on Sept 7, noted 1154:31* cut off; conditions today
not as good recently heard.

CHINA. 6035, FM99 (Voice of Shangri-la) relay via PBS Yunnan, on Sept 7,
at 1201, heard today with the normal single audio feed, unlike yesterday's
anomaly of double audio feed. Singing "Radio" jingle that is regularly heard
one minute after the top-of-the-hour, followed by the station's slogan in English,
which seems like "traveling with the sound of Shangri-la," audio of which is
posted at http://goo.gl/pt8MuP .

7210, PBS Yunnan, Sept 7, started at *1035, with the usual musical loop IS,
till 1100; mixing with VOV1 (Vietnam); both decent signals. Yunnan starting
times here vary.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, Sept 7. Second day here, so no
N. Korea yet (which was still very strong down on ex: 5920); the usual good
reception.

1000: "Bodo gwangjang" program ("News plaza"). My audio
at http://goo.gl/p57aPw

1100: "Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo" program ("Korean people, to unity, to the

INDONESIA. Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI) was founded on 11 September
1945, so that makes 73 years of broadcasting!

Voice of Indonesia, 3325, at 1300, Sept 9 (Sunday). Intro to the segment in
English; news; message of congratulations to RRI for their 73rd anniversary;
sports; "Today in History"; "Highlights of the week"; recently with somewhat
better reception than normally heard. On Sept 10, noted VOI with stronger
reception than NBC Bougainville, at 1143.

[non-log]. 7289.92, Pro 1 RRI Nabire, on Sept 8, started checking at 0744,
but nothing heard. Seems erratic?

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, through Sept 10, this frequency
is still clear of N. Korea jamming, which is still down on ex VOF frequency
of 5920. Will be very sorry to find that the N. Korea jamming has returned
to 6045, as the last time they were there, they produced a spur on 6035,

frequency!

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. The Monday (Sept 10) edition of "Say

"Tom" checks into a hotel in Manchester to get a good night's sleep, but

Here is an early reminder that this Sunday (Sept 16), will be Malaysia 
Day, an important date in Malaysian history. In the past was primarily
observed in Sarawak and Sabah, but currently pushing for a wider
celebration - http://goo.gl/ZPssVh . Every year RTM carries the
Prime Minister's address to the nation via 9835 (Sarawak FM) and
11665 (Wai FM), as these two stations are currently the only active
SW stations - please note my former log/audio below. YouTube has
a scenic 2018 Malaysia Day video at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJpQlr-Fb84 .

Although rather unlikely, I will be checking for any possible special
reactivations on SW, that might be covering the celebrations.
Checking former frequencies: 5965 (Radio Klasik, formerly Klasik
Nasional), 6050 (Asyik FM), 7295 (Traxx FM), etc.

Re: Nepal on 5005 kHz. - Ron Howard Sep 13, 2018 13:27 UTC No.3462
Thanks to Sarath Weerakoon (UADX) for the following item about Nepal reactivation 
on SW, on 5005 kHz. Wonderful news!

Ron

- - - from WRTH Facebook (Sept 13):

Victor Goonetilleke‎ to UNION OF ASIAN DXERS

"BREAKING NEWS
Radio Nepal is back on short-wave after six years by adding 5005 kHz to augment
its national transmission grid broadcasting on MW and FM. According to a station
official, Radio Nepal resumed short wave broadcasts from 02.00 – 5.00 p m Nepali
time using a 10 kw transmitter at Khumaltar, Lalitpur in Kathmandu . The same
source said the station is applying very low power. By all accounts, 5005 kHz is a
difficult Dx catch for listeners outside of Nepal. Nepal is 5 hours and 45 minutes
ahead of UTC. [ Sarath Weerakoon, 11 Sep 2018 ]

Picking up on this both Sarath and I (GVG) started looking for it and here in Sri
Lanka on my Perseus SDR there is a faint line and further checking with the
IBB/VOA Run Perseus SDR in Delhi, there is even a stronger line which left
at 1120 UTC more or less confirming. Even though the station is running its
old 10kW power cant be more than a 1 kw or so.

But the greater news is that Nepal is now available on Short Wave for DXers
and it took UADX to tell the DX community. Sarath thanks again
for your Investigative DX Journalism. This is what UADX is all about."

Ron Howard
Here in California [Sept 13], tuned in at 1050, to hear a positive carrier on
5005 kHz., went off about 1108 or 1109. Questionable if I will be able to get
any audio, but at least have a definite carrier. Maybe by December the
reception will be better?

Mauno Ritola
Yes, greyline almost reaches Kathmandu at that time in December.

I asked them and they say, that they are now just testing with 15-20 kW power

schedule.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia (presumed), via RRI Palangkaraya, 1208, 
Sept 13. Carrier heard at decent level, but with no trace of any audio; this is not
the first time recently that I have noted the same thing.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, quick check at 1052, Sept 13. Finally
heard them heavily jammed by N. Korea (ex 5920 now a clear frequency); also
heard the jamming spur on 6035, which is serious QRM for both the PBS Yunnan
relay of FM99 (China) and also BBS (Bhutan). It will be extremely difficult to now
confirm BBS on 6035, at least as long as VOF stays on 6045. A frustrating
situation!

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 1135-1207*,

Voice of Indonesia; 1113-1120, discussion about Bougainville; 1120-1140, DJ

1140-1202*, DJ in Pidgin playing Pacific Islands pop songs; suddenly cut off,
leaving VOI in the clear.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260), suddenly went off the air at 1213*, Sept 14. Not
nearly as strong as NBC on 3325.

CHINA. 7210, PBS Yunnan (ethnic minority broadcasting), at 1049, on Sept 14.
Again heard with the usual distinctive IS of non-stop musical loop of all EZL

INDIA[non-log]. 5040, AIR Jeypore, at 1214, Sept 14. Currently off the air; also
recently reported being silent by Pradip Kundu (India) via WRTH Facebook.

NEPAL[non-log]. 5005, R. Nepal, at 1100, Sept 14. Clearly no carrier being heard

Sat. - Sept 15); a readable audio feed from a CCTV9 documentary (they have
many video documentaries in English online at http://cctv.cntv.cn/documentary/);
this weekends interesting program was about the Shaolin monks and kung fu;
the Leshan Giant Buddha, a 233 feet tall stone statue; taking the worlds longest
cable ride on the Tianmen Mountain Cableway, then walking 999 steps up to the
Tianmen Cave (“Gateway to Heaven”).

From my observations, due to their starting time, have recently not heard the
beginning of the 25 minute "Focus on China" program. Program ends at 0955.
"Focus on China" is not // to the other VOS frequency of 4900, which is their

Sept 24 - Both PBS Yunnan frequencies clearly off the air today (very rare!).

7210 kHz., at 1055 UTC, should have had a much stronger signal from PBS
Yunnan, above a much weaker VOV1 (Vietnam) underneath, but today found
only VOV1, with definitely no PBS being present; checking till 1223 UTC and
still no PBS.

1105 UTC, went down to 6035 kHz., checking for the PBS Yunnan relay of FM99,
that had been well heard on a daily basis, but today only heard the N. Korea
jamming spur on 6035 (from jamming on 6045, against Voice of Freedom [Korea]),
with positively no FM99 today, also checking through 1223 UTC. Very unusual for
them both to be off the air!

wind, and temperature."

USA. 7505v, WRNO, on Sept 24, at 1254. Roy Rogers and Dale Evans singing
"Happy Trails; followed by station SA ("75-05") and contact info; then program SA
for "Grace for Today" in both English and Chinese; cut off in mid-sentence at 1304*;
fair.

VIETNAM. 7210, VOV1, 1059, Sept 24. Normally this is buried underneath a much
stronger PBS Yunnan, but that was silent today, so VOV1 heard in the clear; IS; time
pips; anthem; in Vietnamese. Poor reception, but much better than usually heard. My
audio at http://goo.gl/YmBwox .
