** PAPUA NEW GUINEA[and non-log]. 3260, NBC Madang, 1140 to off about
1218 (tuned away for a minute and missed the exact time), Oct 19. Reactivated
after being silent since early this year; unusable at tune in; slowly improved;
1200 seemed usual news in English; open carrier on both 3275 (NBC Southern
Highlands) and 3365 (NBC Milne Bay), so NBC Madang was the strongest NBC
station, with some audio. Thanks very much to Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) for
the alert. It's nice to have three NBC stations on the air again at the same time!

7324.96, Wantok Radio Light, 1407, Oct 19. A quick check here found a clear
frequency; no WRL. BTW - CRI is now back again on 7325; at 1222 in Japanese;

"Bad news for the only broadcaster on 4850, AIR Kohima and its big fan
Ron Howard, but has he noticed any QRDRM?"

Since PBS Xinjiang (East Turkistan) left this frequency earlier this summer
for their usual seasonal change, have not heard anything on 4850, except
like today (Oct 19) covered by OTH radar (4840 though 4900, at 1243 &
1331), but this is only occasionally heard. As happens every year, I hope

ID and usual "Love Ambon" theme music, a few seconds before 1501; poor/

6020 kHz.: Tuned in at 1237 to hear UNID station; announcer with

am I?" "What is the answer?"; gave two phone numbers to call in

adjacent QRM. Normally at this time I would only be hearing

3325 kHz: From 1306 to 1406; mostly fair with non-stop music (pop
Pacific Island songs, songs in English ["Sexual Healing"], etc.); 1357
announcer in Tok Pisin/Pidgin, but by then RRI Palangkaraya was
getting stronger; later check at 1432 found a mess here, as both
NBC & RRI mixing together equally. My audio of music at

The new SW transmitter is located at Kubu on Buka Island, 
about 80 miles (129 km) away from the site of the former
transmitter at Kieta. Believe Kieta was devastated by the
1990 civil uprising and that few people reside there now.

Here is a recent story (Jan 9).

Ron

http://goo.gl/IjeOpC


"The NBC Radio Bougainville Manager Official Residence at the
Transmitter site in Kubu on Buka Island was burnt to ashes just
after midday today.

Manageress, CHRISTINE TALEI a veteran Broadcaster is the current
boss of the station and resides in this house.

The cause of the fire is not known at this stage, but Technicians were
working on the new Shortwave Transmitter for the Station when the
fire was noticed.

The compound also shares houses with the Station Technician and the
shortwave Transmitter plus the satellite link that sends program signals
for Radio Bougainville and New Dawn FM to Central and South
Bougainville.

According to the Station Technicians equipments were switched off but
were switched on again after the fire died out.

Yesterday, New Dawn FM ran a story of the heat of the sun as unbearable
in the last two days in and around Buka town."

Feb 2 with NBC Bougainville testing on 3325 (1241-1403). 
A very good day for RRI Palangkaraya, therefor a very bad day for NBC
reception. By 1400 RRI, with their local news and many mentions of
"Palangkaraya," was stronger than NBC. Did manage to hear some of the
1301 "NBC News Roundup" in English, but that was mostly unusable.

My Jan 30 NBC reception on 3325 was much better, as RRI was very faint
underneath NBC that day. Completely different conditions today. We
can only hope for more days that RRI is not propagating well for us to
really hear NBC.

Whilst no specific figure known, NBC Madang & Alotau are running on
reduced power, perhaps something more akin to 3kW as the 10kW NEC
transmitters are at the end of their life. I haven't heard Alotau
for a while now.

NBC Bouganville was again on air tonight until 1055UT with same
weak signal as last night. Much weaker compared to Saturday evening,
not sure if it's propagation or something else at this stage.

RRI Palangkaraya with mostly music and IDs, while NBC
Bougainville was mostly talking (1327 phone chatting
in Pidgin); yet another day of RRI being much stronger;
by 1335 both station talking, with the result being a
mess, so tuned away; checked again at 1352 only to
find that NBC had gone off the air sometime between

DRM test transmissions from NBC-Bougainville - XYZ Feb 05, 2016 10:56 UTC No.896

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm officially informed that DRM SW test transmissions from NBC Bougainville have
occurred during the current testing phase to test linearity of the new 10kW transmitter.

I suspect Bryan Clark in NZ heard one such transmission on February 4th on 6020kHz
earlier in local evening. Further DRM testing will occur. Please don't ask when, as
there is no schedule. But you have been alerted to keep an ear out :-)

These DRM transmissions are the first such DRM transmissions to have occurred from PNG.

STATION NEWS

PAPUA NEW GUINEA.
Over the past week, many people around the world have monitored the test
transmissions of the NBC service from Radio Bougainville at the Kubu
transmitter site on Buka Island. Both 6020 and 3325 kHz have been in use
at various times of the day. Here at Mount Evelyn, a booming signal was
heard last night (Feb 7) at 1040 UTC with an interview program in Tok Pisin.
Then the religious song "Here I am Lord" at 1058. ID as "NBC Bougainville"
at 1102. However, nothing was heard on 3325 kHz at that time except for the
Indonesian RRI Palangkaraya. The station has also been heard in California
by Ron Howard and in Texas by Roland Richter between 1200 and 1400 on one
or both frequencies, as well as in Japan and Europe. In addition, Timm
Breyel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has today received an email verification
confirming the station's operations. Radio Bougainville is expected to
complete its tests and be on regular service by the end of this month.
Watch out for it!

Feb 17 tuned in to 3325 to find two stations here at 1237; both 
unusable; by 1305 only one station here - RRI Palangkaraya.

Ian (Australia) today says NBC Bougainville is now operating
on a "normal schedule," so will they normally be signing off
sometime about 1300? Certainly today was a much shorter
broadcast than I heard yesterday, which went past 1503.
Needs more monitoring now that they have a schedule.

Thanks to "The SWLing Post" : https://goo.gl/ZE4pyN


Post Courier Online : http://postcourier.com.pg/basil-revive-radio-station/
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
November 6, 2017

Minister for Communication, Information Technology and Energy Sam Basil wants all 22
provinces to have short wave frequency radio stations.

He said this during the Central Province assembly induction program last week Friday
in Port Moresby.

"My role as the minister is to make sure that we go back to all the 22 provinces to
make sure that we revive the radio stations" Mr Basil said.

He said most of the radio stations currently using frequency modulation (FM) face the
problem of signal loose in the rural settings as it is only powered by repeater and
could not be able to penetrate when it meets obstacles.

"This is to ensure that people are kept informed and in tuned with the government of
the day" Mr Basil said.

He said to achieve this he will need the assistance of each local PMs of the 22
provinces.

"We will also require the support of the provincial government and administration for
my department to roll out the program because I believe that the past decision made
by previous government that transfers the provincial radio assets back to the
provinces, the National Broadcasting Corporation and Department of Communication took
the step back because ther's no funding to make sure we maintain those asset.

"I want to go short wave and we want to bring back to all the provinces capital in
Papua New Guinea through National Broadcasting Corporation so that people in the
mountains can have excess to communication" Mr Basil said.
