Re: Bougainville, Indonesia and PNG Ron Howard - Jan 03, 2017 15:51 UTC No.2029
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1119-1205*,
Jan 3. DJ in Pidgin/Tok Pisin playing pop songs; too weak to
be readable.

Today was a first for me here, hearing a formal, offical sign off
format. For a long time now NBC normally ended about 1200+ by
just suddenly going off the air (pulled the plug), but instead today
at 1203 noted children singing the National Anthem and announcer
in English with what sounded like station SA/ID and frequencies (heard
"kilohertz" mentioned several times); very tough copy; off at 1205*.

The other change today was that they did not go to the usual Port
Moresby audio feed about 1201, for the "NBC News in Brief." In
the past, Bougainville normally started the news, but rarely got all
the way through it before going off the air, but instead today they
did their own sign off format. So today was a major change in their
closing.

In the past, I often heard this sign off format of children singing the
National Anthem on both NBC Madang (3260) and NBC New
Ireland (3905), so was a real treat for me to hear it again, as it
had been over a year since I last heard it.

Today's propagation did not favor RRI Palangkaraya, which was
not a factor at all in hearing NBC.

My poor quality audio at http://goo.gl/xaP33v .

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1212-1228, Jan 3.
Jakarta news relay already in progress, in Bahasa Indonesia;
ending the news at 1228 with patriotic song (too weak to ID song);
clearly // Pro 1 RRI Wamena (4869.88) till 1230. Unable to confirm
// to RRI Ternate, as only an open carrier on 3344.86.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1206-1207*, Jan 3.
Pop song till suddenly off. For a long time now, this has been their
closing format, to just pull the plug, with no formal sign off.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1109-1201*, Jan 9. 
Provincial news in Pidgin/Tok Pisin (item about "Department of
Education," etc.); DJ in Pidgin/Tok Pisin playing pop Pacific Islands
music; suddenly off without the recently heard formal sign off format;
unfortunately today's propagation favored both RRI Palangkaraya
and NBC, so they were mixing together for most of the time, with
NBC only slightly better at times.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice Shangri-la), Jan 8 running past
their normal sign off time of 1200*; at 1256 non-stop classical western
orchestra music; still on at 1303.

INDIA. 4896.0, AIR Kurseong, occasionally this off frequency anomaly
happens, as it did today (Jan 9), as noted at 1242; Dave Valko also noted
same about this time; normally, on most days, heard on 4895.0.

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1109, Jan 9. Ending
the local news with usual patriotic song 釘agimu Negeri・(For You Our
Country); NBC Bougainville QRM, which was slightly stronger at times.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1202-1237*, Jan 9.
Running later than usual (normally off about 1206 or so); 1202-1206
NBC news in English; promo; DJ in English playing pop songs in
English; several on air phone conversations; mostly unreadable;
suddenly off in mid-song.

KOREA NORTH[non]. On Jan 11, on 6145, again heard the 
same special Shiokaze programming as heard on Dec 29
and originally recorded Dec 10. Preempted regular Shiokaze
programming. 1331+ with nice segment of easy listening
orchestra music ("Moon River," etc.). I suppose we should
be thankful to N. Korea for not jamming this entertaining
show.

KOREA SOUTH. 9100, Echo of Hope - VOH, briefly heard
at 1403, Jan 11, Very surprised to find them on the air at this
time, as their schedule is supposedly 1800-2400 on this
frequency. Once it was heard (not jammed), went to check
for //; yes, definitely // 4885, which was well heard as usual
and not jammed, while // 3985 // 6003 and // 6348 were all
jammed; news in Korean; when I tuned back to 9100 at 1405,
found they had already gone off the air. A brief test of some
type? Thinking of expanding their schedule?

Re: The death of the Chief Minister of Sarawak Ron Howard - Jan 12, 2017 20:21 UTC No.2049
MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, via Kajang, 1537, Jan 12.
Chief Minister of Sarawak (Tan Sri Adenan Satem) passed
away yesterday; there will be seven days of mourning and
flags will be at half-mast, for this popular leader.

Heard mostly non-stop reciting from the Qur'an, with brief SA/IDs;
noted a recital by a woman, which is extremely rare, so I knew
something very unique was going on; certainly these recitals
are in honor of the late leader; still heard at 1629, with good
reception.

No other Malaysian stations were heard today, which has been
the case recently; no Asyik FM (6050) and no Wai FM (11665).

Re: The death of the Chief Minister of Sarawak Ron Howard - Jan 12, 2017 22:00 UTC No.2050
Thanks very much to Rob Wagner, who posted this to Facebook 
WRTH - "Thanks Ron. None of the usual FM music programming
noted at 2030 to past 2100. Just Qur'an recitations and no IDs
either. Jan 12."

Appreciate the feedback!

Now"); SA/IDs "You are now listening to Focus on China, in Voice of
Strait Broadcast Station"; fair.

INDIA. 4894.9, AIR Kurseong, 1531, Jan 14. Seemed to be
on low side of their normal 4895.0; New Delhi audio feed of the
news in English

// 4760 AIR Port Blair (ANDAMAN & NICOBAR ISLANDS).

// 4910 AIR Jaipur.

// 4920 AIR Chennai, almost fair with QRM (TIBET - PBS Xizang).

4950 AIR Radio Kashmir, Srinagar (presumed) - only an open
carrier; never reached the level of any audio.

// 4970 AIR Shillong.

// 5010 AIR Thiruvananthapuram.

// 5040 AIR Jeypore.

// 5050 AIR Aizawl, QRM from Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio (CHINA).

// 9380 AIR Aligarh.

5050, AIR Aizawl, 1230, Jan 14. Amazing propagation that
completely blocked out Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio (CHINA)
which normally dominates this frequency; also a rare day
with strong signal from Aizawl; news in English; mostly
readable. Daily I check here, but have never heard
anything like today's reception. Audio from today at
http://goo.gl/ry8d9E . China did indeed fade up here a
little later.

1612-1630*; after China signed off, subcontinent music program
"produced by AIR Shillong," in English; SA/ID 典his came to you from
the North Eastern Service of All India Radio broadcasting from
Shillong"; local Aizawl SA/ID and frequency at sign off.

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1402, Jan 14. Local
news in Bahasa Indonesia; unusually strong signal, but QRN (static)
sounded more like summertime QRN (heavy); 1416 ending news with
the normally played patriotic song ("Bagimu Negeri"); very unique
propagation today strongly favoring RRI & AIR stations.

3344.85, RRI Ternate, 1505*, Jan 14. Off with the usual "Pulau Ambon"
(Island of Ambon)/"Love Ambon"; better than average reception.

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, via Kajang, 1212, Jan 14. Continuing
with mostly Qur'an recitals in honor of the late Chief Minister of
Sarawak; 1300 & 1400 breaks for 10 minutes of news in vernacular;
still on at last check at 1548, still with Qur'an recitals.

Still no other Malaysian stations were heard today, which has been the
case recently; no Asyik FM (6050) and no Wai FM (11665).

TAJIKISTAN. 4790, BBC Uzbek, 1316, Jan 14. Mixing badly with the
jamming by CNR1 (// 6125); schedule 1300-1330.

through subsequent checking till 0503, on Jan 18, found
them still silent, with no hint of a carrier.

Update from Bill - Angola back on the air, at 1745, on Jan 18.
Good news!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1134-1202*, Jan 17.
DJ in Pidgin/Tok Pisin played EZL pop songs in English; 1201 start
of the NBC news in English; suddenly off. So today they did not
use their formal sign off format, but went back to business as
usual. RRI Palangkaraya not propagating, so no QRM.

CHINA. 6230, CNR1 jamming, 1231, Jan 17. There was a time
in the past when the PRC jammed almost all of Sound of Hope
programs, on a continual basis, but that is no longer the case.
Now it almost seems rare for them to bother to jam SOH. I daily
check this frequency and it is indeed very rare to hear SOH
jammed here, as it was today, with a very strong signal. Of
course also blocking VMW (Australia Weather West) also on
frequency here. Jan 18, back to normal, with no jamming of SOH.

RUSSIA. 7345 // 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, at 0349, on
Jan 18, with sound of horses neighing, sound of galloping horses
and some Jew's harp (khomus) music; usual SA/ID at 0350, followed
by series of ads.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020. Am no longer hearing any extended
broadcasts here (as of Jan 18), as I had noted late last year;
have been checking many days about 1230, but this year seems
no extended programming past 1200.

9545, SIBC, Jan 18, at 0438; DJ in Pijin playing pop songs and asking
a series of questions; "What is 60% of 300?"; read out list of people
who answered correctly; 0500 ABC news (RA: // 15240 [good] // 15415
[poor] // 17840 [very good]); SIBC suddenly off at 0501*, with RA
continuing.

Maybe after this month, this will be the only place to hear ABC news
on SW?

UNID. 3210-USB, on Jan 18, heard 1253-1256*. Daily I check here for
the return of the low powered Australian; a first for me today was to hear
Russian; thanks very much to Mauno Ritola, for listening to my audio clip

Hi Wolfie,

Could it be that Myanmar's exact frequency transmitter (5985.00)
is having problems now, as you noted them off the air on Jan 20?
Could they have reactivated the old mothballed off frequency
transmitter, to fill in while they repair the 5985.00 transmitter?
Just speculating!

Jan 21, heard on about 5985.15, at 1441, in vernacular with on air
phone chat; seemed not nearly as strong as the exact frequency
transmitter; by 1541, very weak signal. Needs more monitoring
to determine what is happening here.

Jan 24, heard SIBC, the Voice of the Nation, with extended 
schedule on 9545; 0500-0530 with ABC news & sports,
followed by RA's "Pacific Beat," with Bruce Hill (info about
2019 referendum to determine Bougainville's independence,
etc.); // RA on 15240, 15415 and 17840; at 0530 no longer //,
went to their own programs; DJ in Pijin playing pop songs
(Tina Turner with "I Don't Wanna Fight," etc.); series of
commercial announcements in English ("Back to school . . .
Telekom," etc.); several "SIBC, the Voice of the Nation" SA/IDs;
after one hour of listening, finally came up to mostly fair
reception; still on the air when tuned out at 0615. So this
extended broadcast was nothing out of the ordinary.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Asyik FM, via Kajang, 1452-1500, Jan 24.
With the usual Tuesday "Bollywood" show of pop songs in Hindi.
Had been off the air for a while.

At 1500, the start of Salam FM, till 1502*, Jan 24. Time pips
(1+1 and mixing with time pips of PBS Xizang [TIBET]); brief SA/ID
("Salam FM"); choral NA (Negaraku ・Lagu Kebangsaan Malaysia);
Islamic programming in vernacular; suddenly off, leaving TIBET
in the clear, with decent reception.

BTW - Now all the SW Malaysian stations are active; 9835 Sarawak
FM and also Wai FM on 11665. Has been a while since all three were
broadcasting at the same time.

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1510, Jan 24. Call-to-prayer
for the Islamic Maghrib prayer, just after sunset; their sunset today
was at 1506 UT (6:06 PM at Hargeisa), while my sunrise was at
1515 UT, so good greyline reception.

SUDAN. 9505, Voice of Africa, *1605, Jan 24. My three receptions
here have all been with different sign on times; today on with carrier
at decent level, but no audio; totally unlike yesterdays reception that
had good audio level for their clear French programming; today by
1621 had the impression there was some very faint audio, but so far
down within the open carrier that I could not guess at the language.

TAIWAN. 9100, Sound of Hope, 1445, Jan 24. Poor; not jammed;
// SOH on 6230 (also unjammed); in Chinese; clearly not Echo of
Hope - VOH, as it was not in Korean and not // 4885. As Glenn has

Re: Japan - low powered JG2XA HF-Doppler (HFD) Project Ron Howard - Jan 25, 2017 16:13 UTC No.2073
Have not checked on JG2XA for a long time, but Jan 25 could
not help but notice that one of their frequencies was clearly off
the air, that was 5006. At 1412 was in fact hearing CW on 8006,
but 5006 had no signal at all.

Last year I consistently heard a format of CW during a portion of
every minute, but not so today. Now there are many minutes (5?)
between their CW transmissions, with just an open carrier (dead
air) between the CW. A major change.

RUSSIA. 7345 // 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0401-0515+,
Jan 29. Preempted all regular programming to provide non-stop
coverage of the action at the Zarya Yakutsk vs Spartak Moscow
game; sounds of the loudspeaker and crowd in the background;
mostly fair; running past their normal 0500* sign off time; 7345
was stronger, but 7295 was clearly //.

CHINA. 5979, Gannan PBS, 1352, Jan 30. In Chinese, with
Chinese music; one of their best days so far since moving off
of ex: 5970. This indeed would seem to be a permanent change,
for whatever reason they did it.

ETHIOPIA. 7234.73v, Voice of Peace & Democracy (presumed),
0403-0415, Jan 30 (Monday). Very poor reception; seemed in
vernacular, with mostly monologues and a few brief selections
of non-descriptive music; by 0415 was totally unusable.

KOREA NORTH[non]. back to their former 5935, Shiokaze/Sea
Breeze via Yamata (Japan), ex: 6145. Jan 30, at 1315 (schedule
1300-1400); in stilted Chinese and no jamming; a check at 1343
had them in Korean for the second half of their broadcast; fair-
good reception, which now completely blocks reception of Tibet
(PBS Xizang), which can be faintly heard underneath Shiokaze.
Wish they would pick a clear frequency to move to!

RUSSIA. 7345 // 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0501*, Jan 30.
Very good reception; IS with Jew's harp, pips (4+1) and more Jew's
harp music; suddenly off. Back to normal after broadcasting
yesterday's extended "futsal" match. Frankly, I had never heard of
this game until checking on the web - http://goo.gl/4Vw8Ta and
also http://goo.gl/0LQpDK .

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC. Thanks to Bill Bingham (RSA)
for the alert they are back on the air again; Jan 30, at 0241 open
carrier with test tone; tone off a minute later; start of extremely
faint IS (African Fish Eagle); certainly not full power; 0244 very
dramatic and sudden improvement as they surely went to full
power; from very poor reception instantly up to fair; 0250 drums;
in vernacular and some African music; 0331* suddenly off the air.
Lusaka sunrise at 0356 UT (5:56 AM their time), so still with
electrical "load shedding," as only broadcasting for about an hour.
Nice to have this one back on the air again!

Re: Sikkim - AIR Gangtok Ron Howard - Jan 31, 2017 16:40 UTC No.2091
SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, Jan 31. Yes, with ABC gone, is
now possible to hear this station that was rarely reported in the
past. Today with positive reception; above threshold level, but
not quite readable. Ideal reception for me, as my local sunrise
was at 1510 UTC.

Highlights:

1437-1445: monologue.

1445-1450: subcontinent music/singing.

1450-1457: another monologue.

1457-1512: beautiful selection of sitar music; all instrumental, no
singing at all.

1512: tones to start the audio feed from New Delhi (commercial
announcements, 1515 news in Hindi and 1530 news in English).

1512+ // 4760, 4810, 4895, 4910 (still just open carrier), 4920, 4970,
5010, 5040, 5050, 9865 (as usual, AIR Bengaluru was heard with ads
and news in Hindi, but did not carry the 1530 news in English). Off the
air today were 4950 and 9380.

KOREA SOUTH. 5857.5, HLL2 Seoul. Thanks to Walt
Salmaniw, for the reminder about this station that I hear
daily, but rarely think to report on. Good signal, but audio
somewhat distorted.

Jan 31, at 1312, in English, with weather conditions at different
observatories around the country; providing wind direction, wind
speed in meters per second, air pressure in hectopascals and
temperature in Celsius; they have other segments in other
languages.

THAILAND. 8743-USB, Bangkok Meteorological Radio, 1341,
Jan 31. In English; marine weather for shipping; ending with their
address: "Telecommunication and Information Technology Bureau,
4353 Sukhumvit Road, Bangna District, Bangkok, Thailand 10260";
1342 played their IS; most days have fair reception; they have other
segments in other languages.

VIETNAM. 7906-USB // 8294-USB, Ho Chi Minh Radio Coast
Station, *1305-1310*, Jan 31. Starts and ends with the usual tones;
in Vietnamese; starts with ID and then marine conditions; both fair.
Has been a considerable amount of time since I last heard their
distress announcements in English, so assume there have been
no marine emergencies recently. Ho Chi Minh Radio is the most
powerful coastal station, so is usually well heard. Operated by
VISHIPEL (Vietnam Maritime Communications and Electronics
LLC).


Re: R. Pilipinas Ron Howard - Feb 02, 2017 06:21 UTC No.2095
PHILIPPINES. 15640 // 17700 // 17820, R. Pilipinas. Recently
these frequencies have had very poor reception (unusable), but
Feb 2, had excellent reception; close to 100% readable; 0235-0252;
programs heard - "DFA Online, news and events from different
Philippine embassies and consulates around the world," "Songs
and music from ASEAN," "Philippine Trivia," "It's More Fun in the
Philippines," etc.; promo for PBS, "70 years of broadcasting";
countless SA/IDs.

In my opinion, this station provides some of the best programming
on SW. Almost everything they broadcast deals locally with the
Philippines, which I find very entertaining. My four minute recording
of this exceptional broadcast is at http://goo.gl/mo3Qsr .

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (9) Ron Howard - Feb 18, 2017 23:19 UTC No.2142
AUSTRALIA. 3210, test of Unique Radio on Feb 18, at 1300,
seemed that I was hearing a JBA open carrier that was not there
minutes earlier; well below threshold level; totally unusable;
subsequent checking through 1450 had extreme challenge to
even tell for sure if the open carrier was still there or not. My
conclusion is that this will probably be mostly unusable for us
in the States.

Seemed today was not an issue with propagation, as most days
Korea, on 3219.9 (5 kW), is just an open carrier, but today had
definite singing at 1451, so generally good propagation and
Korea on 3320 (100 kW) had the usual good reception.

CHINA. 4900, VOS (Minnan language service), still remains
here on Feb 18, at 1456, with fair reception. Hard to tell if this will
turn out to be just a temporary move from ex: 6115?

4940, Voice of Strait, 1500-1530, Feb 18. Saturday only English
program "Focus on China"; a filler (anomaly) program; not their
standard news format at all; audio from the CCTV documentary
"A Bite of China," segment "Inspiration for Change," about making
tofu, rice wine and soy sauce; one continuous announcer (native
speaker of English); no breaks for IDs; 1530 SA/ID in English - "This
is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio"; mostly readable.

Believe some of the VOS staff must still be out on holiday, or would
assume they would have had their normal Saturday news format.

4990, PBS Hunan, 1402, Feb 17. Better than normal reception; "ni
hao," the standard Chinese phone greeting; many on air calls.

9575, CNR1 echo jamming of AIR, via Bengaluru, in Tibetan; Feb 17,
at 1247; scheduled 1215-1330.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1538, Feb 18. Segment in
English; "the weather" (outlook for the next two days); "End of the
news from Myanmar Radio"; 1540-1555 with the Saturday program
天oice of ASEAN, Beyond Boundaries"; seemed to be produced by
PBS (Philippines), as the announcer was Edward Santos, who I have
heard many times over Radio Pilipinas, talking about relationships
between Malaysia and the Philippines; 1556 "Welcome to our program,
ASEAN News"; item about Cambodia, etc.; covered at 1600 by China
(CRI); mostly readable.

It will be recalled that Myanmar and the Philippines signed a Memo of
Understanding (http://210.5.104.56/treaty/scanneddocs/616.pdf).

BTW - 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of
ASEAN.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, 1457-1515, Feb 17. Nicely above
threshold level audio; at most times able to make out the language
used; 1457-1512 alternating announcers in Hindi; 1512 the usual
tone to start the New Delhi audio feed, with commercial announcements
in Hindi, till news in Hindi at 1515. Certainly one of their better days.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC. In Dec, noted many days with
extended broadcasting post-1200*, but in Jan, did not hear any and
now in Feb am again hearing some, but certainly not on a daily basis.

Feb 18, tuned in at 1303 to hear SIBC with extended airing of non-stop
pop songs ("My Boyfriend's Back," etc.); no SA/IDs heard, so clearly not a
Wantok FM relay; 1314 audio ended and went to dead air (open carrier),
which was still on at 1608. Very unfortunate that they ended the audio
early, while still keeping the transmitter on for many hours after that. Why
not just keep the audio going?

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC, 1603, Feb 18. Via long path; mixing with
Myanmar(?); China (CRI) had already signed off; in vernacular; at times
almost fair.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay via SIBC, 1404-1448
& 1517-1537 and still on at 1550, Feb 19; being as it's Sunday, heard
with all contemporary worship songs in English (song "Broken Vessels -
Amazing Grace", etc.); only very brief SA/IDs - "Wantok FM 96.3. Good
times, great music" and "The hottest sounds . . . with the hottest DJs,
96.3"; mostly fair.

They must have read my comments yesterday - "Very unfortunate that
they ended the audio early, while still keeping the transmitter on for
many hours after that. Why not just keep the audio going?" Yes, was
very nice today to have audio! My recording of SA/ID and "Broken Vessels -

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, on Feb 21; well
above the norm; propagation favoring BB and not CNR1; 1251-1253
SA/ID and daily "weather forecast" in English; high today 31.2ーC, sunrise
at 6:27 AM and sunset at 5:56 PM.

INDIA. 6030, AIR Delhi (Kingsway - 250 kW), 1311, Feb 21. Unique
propagation here at this time preiod, as normally would have CNR1
mixing with Calgary (CFVP), not AIR; subcontinent music and
announcer in Hindi; underneath China.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, on Feb 21, with unusually good
propagation; the best reception I have had here since ABC went
silent; 1508 with subcontinent music; 1512 switch over to audio feed
from New Delhi, starting with tone; singing ads in Hindi; 1515 tone
before news in Hindi. My audio at http://goo.gl/BDcirm .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, via SIBC. Yes, Feb 21,
with yet another day of a long, extended broadcast; 1244, till past 1518;
strong signal during unique propagation; good reception at times; pop
songs (Bette Midler - "From a Distance [God Is Watching Us]," etc.);
short SA/IDs - "Listen non-stop, non-stop, 96.3," "This is Wantok FM 96.3.
Good times, great music" and "Listen to the hottest sounds . . . with the
hottest DJs, 96.3."

TAJIKISTAN. 4790, BBC Uzbek, 1302 and 1330* (almost 1331), Feb 21.
Poor, but about the best reception I have had here; good propagation, but
the usual heavy CODAR QRM; CNR1 jamming extremely faint; a long radio
drama; 1330 BBC SA/ID and pips. Not often I can actually make out the SA/ID.

INDONESIA. 4869.9, Pro 1 RRI Wamena, as it's Thursday (Feb 23),
time to check for "Kang Guru Indonesia." Yes, at 1239 the first "KGI" ID
and intro in Bahasa Indonesia, then on to English; KGI is "carried on
over 200 stations"; played a few pop songs; segment about rhyming
words; "Find a word that rhymes with soldier? . . . shoulder"; segment
"Good neighbors make good friends," about the importance of using
"Thank you and please" in Australia & Indonesia; about "cultural
differences"; better reception than usual, but still less than semi-
readable.

BTW - RRI Ternate (3344.87) not hear on Feb 23.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 5935, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze via Yamata (Japan),
1330, with Thursday (Feb 23) English. Intro to the repeated half hour show
that just aired; N. Korean jamming; both totally blocking reception of Tibet
(PBS Xizang).

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1415, Feb 23. Daily
heard with good reception and never jammed by N. Korea, as their
other frequencies are; as usual at 15 minutes after the hour, strong
"V O H" SA/ID.

6135, Voice of Freedom (clandestine). Normally blocked by strong white
noise jamming from N. Korea, but Feb 23, found VOF cutting through
the jamming fairly well at 1349, with a radio drama in Korean; so todays
propagation favored the south rather than the north. BTW - the KBS
station on 6015, was also well heard through the white noise jamming.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Salam FM, 1503, Feb 22. Islamic programming
(reciting from the Qur'an, etc.); in vernacular; many singing IDs; 1518
SA/ID with "shortwave" and "FM" frequencies; still on the air at 1524; fair-
good, with light QRM from Tibet.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Feb 22 (Wednesday), at
1545, with "VOA American Stories, Learning English," with a dramatic
presentation of the story 鄭 Princess of Mars,・by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Transcript and audio streaming at http://goo.gl/nxM1DU .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, via SIBC, 1309, Feb 23.
Yet another day of extended broadcasting (now daily?); non-stop songs
(Lionel Richie - "Stuck on you," Men At Work - "Who can it be now?," etc.);
frequent brief SA/IDs; not as strong as yesterday; still on at 1410. Yesterday,
Yoshiyuki Ohashi (formerly active in SWL as "Peace-J") was also hearing
this at 1321, with nice reception in Japan.

Wantok FM 96.3, was established in 1999, as a part of SIBC, to attract a
younger audience - http://goo.gl/TLliig .

USA. 7505v, WRNO, 0424, Thursday (Feb 23). In Chinese, with "Praise
for Today," already in progress; poor-fair.

ZAMBIA. 5915, ZNBC/Radio One, 0458, Feb 23. In English; promo
for the "Zambia Bureau of Standards"; music & call of fish eagle; "One
Zambia, one nation"; news & sports ("Bank of Zambia projects a 3.9%
economic growth rate this year," etc.); 0515 weather and repeat promo
for the "Zambia Bureau of Standards"; 0517 into vernacular; no "load
shedding" today, unlike yesterdays closing down at sunrise.

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, 0340, Feb 23. Normal format at this time;
brief chanting and mention of "Zanzibar"; almost fair; better than usual.

CHINA. 5979, Gannan PBS, 1344, Feb 27. In Chinese; ex: 5970 
still remains a clear frequency. This must be an intended permanent
change, as it has been about three months now since they moved
to this new frequency.

CONGO. 6115, Radio Congo (presumed), 0515-0518*, Feb 27.
Clearly hearing announcers in French underneath strong Japan
(SA/IDing as "RN2, Radio Nikkei"), but after 0518 certainly not on
the air through checking to 0545. Brazzaville local sunrise at
0505 UT. Seemed strange to me that they went off the air about
their sunrise. Perhaps I have been checking for them too late,
when I was looking closer to 0600 UT?

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005.0, RNGE, R. Bata (presumed),
on Feb 27, noted decent open carrier at 0522 and subsequent
checking; never made out any audio; decent level OC past 0546.
No, do not believe it was Madagascar.

INDIA. 4870.27, AIR (Delhi-Kingsway), at 1357, on Feb 27, with
subcontinent music/singing; scheduled to be in Nepali; best in USB
to get away from RRI Wamena on the low side.

4970, AIR Shillong, 1506, Feb 26 (Sunday), with Christian songs;
1510 local SA/ID and news headlines in English; "please stand by for
the news"; 1512 start of the New Delhi audio feed.

Shillong is a hill station in northeast India and capital of the state
of Meghalaya. Christianity is the dominant religion there. In fact
Christianity is the major religion in three northeastern states
(Nagaland, Mizoram, and Meghalaya).

INDONESIA. 3344.86, RRI Ternate, 1445-1504*, Feb 27. Off
with the usual "Pulau Ambon" (Island of Ambon)/"Love Ambon."

MALAYSIA. 6050, Salam FM, 1505 till past 1518, Feb 27. Strong
signal, with good reception; in vernacular; many SA/IDs.

11665, Wai FM, with the Sunday (Feb 26) "Country and Western"
show; at 1534 with American C&W songs (Kenny Rogers - "The
Gambler," etc.); DJ in vernacular giving title to songs; good
reception.

PHILIPPINES. 17820, R. Pilipinas, 0231-0241, Feb 26. Only this
frequency very readable; // 15640 // 17700 not so readable. News
about the activities of the president and of tourism in the Philippines;
擢rom the presidential palace Manila, Dateline Malacang,・which
of course is the name of the presidential palace.

RUSSIA. 7345 // 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. Feb 26 (Sunday)
noted at 0246, with their weekend schedule (0000-0500), as opposed
to the weekday schedule 0300-0500; pop songs; 0250 usual SA/ID and ads;
covered at *0258 by strong RRI sign on (IS), which is often not so strong
as today.

7345 // 7295, on Feb 27 (Monday), 0450-0500*; usual SA/ID and ads; music;
0500 IS (Jew's harp - khomus) and 3 pips; 7295 with much better reception
than normal, with 7345 still stronger.

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1517, Feb 27. Call-to-prayer for the
Islamic Maghrib prayer, just after sunset; their sunset today was at 1514
UT (6:14 PM at Hargeisa), while my sunrise was at 1440 UT.

ZAMBIA. 5915, ZNBC/Radio One, 0500, Feb 27. In English with news,
sports, weather and government promo ending at 0512 and into vernacular.
Have found the length of the English segment varies daily, ending between
0512 to 0518.

at 1257.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, via SIBC. Feb 28 another

Me Like You Do," etc.); mostly fair reception; SA/IDs ("Listen non-stop, non-stop,
96.3," etc.); audio still there at 1326, but by 1340 only a strong open carrier till
past 1526+ (dead air).

Hello! Ron-san and Hiroyuki-san.
How are you today?
I'm feeling good because I just had a really good lunch in the morning after my grave-yard shift.

To Ron-san.
Regarding your audio KBS Hanminjok Bangsong on 6015 kHz from California, that sounds good! and nice catch & timing of not jammed!
The photograph of rainbow at Asilomar State Beach is very beautiful, too!

0700UTC time pips is 1600KST(JST) time pips. (4pm afternoon)
KST is Shoth Korean Standard Time, and it's same as Japanese Standard Time(JST).

I was able to confirm that SA/IDs in your audio.
The SA/IDs of Korean language is "KBS Hanminjok Bangsong e nyuseu ip nida." by male voice after the time pips.
This Korean language mean "This is KBS Hanminjok Bangsong's news."

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1057-1137*, March 9.
Pop Pacific Islands song; in Pidgin/Tok Pisin with info about "very
important document," "record of employment," "Bougainville Board
of Education"; 1126 PSA about the upcoming elections in June;
back to DJ with pop Pacific Islands songs till suddenly off in
mid-song, so they did not make it through to their normal 1200*;
better than semi-readable.

Only very light QRM from RRI Palangkaraya, which at 1113 played
the distinctive patriotic song 釘agimu Negeri・(For You Our Country),
but was far underneath NBC.

Seeing as PNG will be holding national and local government
elections this coming June, we can expect many more PSAs
and more info about the elections.

CHINA. March 9, a day with Voice of Strait anomalies. Timeline:

1212 - both 4900 (Minnan language service) and 4940 ("Voice of Taiwan
Strait News Radio") off the air. In the past, both had *1200 sign on times.

1248 - noted 6115 on the air (Minnan language service).

*1248-1249* - happened to briefly hear 4940 come on the air and go off.

1314 - found 6115 silent. So is the switch from 6115 to 4900 happening
now at 1300, instead of formerly at 1200?

1315 - heard both 4900 and 4940; both with strong OTH radar QRM.

5979, Gannan PBS, 1318, March 9. Sounded like Chinese and played
some EZL music; between 1401 and 1408, they went off the air.

7385, Firedragon (music jamming) & CNR1 jamming, 1413, March 9,
which were to block RTI.

INDONESIA. 9524.96, VOI, 1311, March 9. Very poor reception, but
was able to make out the start of "Today in History," during their English
segment; better reception after 1402, in Indonesian.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1149-1206*, March 9.
In Pidgin/Tok Pisin; pop songs (Dr Hook - "Sharing the Night Together,"
etc.); 1200 PNG bird call and NBC news/weather in English (Australian
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop gave an address at Lae School of Nursing,
etc.); promo for NBC; suddenly off; poor, but at times semi-readable.

Hi Glenn,

During my March 7 reception on 6015 (KBS Hanminjok Bangsong),
heard a phone report between a man and woman (00:21+ on my
audio), at 0714 UT. Thanks to input from Chulsu-san (Korean DXer),
via Amano-san and Hiroyuki-san, have learned the following about
that phone report:

"After 25 seconds [into my audio - Ron], female announcer says 'jayu
asia bangsong'. 'jayu asia bangsong' is Radio Free Asia (RFA).

After 29 seconds, female announcer says 'seoul jiguk gija'.
'seoul jiguk gija' is Seoul branch reporter.

After 31 seconds, female announcer says 'annyeong ha seyo'.
'annyeong ha seyo' is hello.

After 40 seconds, it is RFA Seoul branch reporter phone report.
He is male. He explained the fact that the US Trump regime began
full-fledged discussions on North Korea policy.

*KBS Hanminjok Bangsong has a cooperative relationship with UBS
National Unification Broadcast (formerly RFC), as well as RFA Korean

So very nice to receive such detailed analysis of my audio. Greatly
appreciate their kind assistance!

Thank you for reporting to DXLDyg, Ron-san.

6015 kHz cannot hear KBS Hanminjok Bangsong even in Japan hear because of influence of North Korean jamming.
This time it was a catch of nice timing from California!!!

Incidentally, with the medium wave of 972 kHz, there is no jamming from North Korea and you can listen KBS Hanminjok Bangsong clearly at night in Japan.

California is a beautiful city.
The rainbow of Asilomar State Beach in California was very beautiful too.

about "festivals"; briefly off for about a minute, but came back till
finally cut off at 1138*; very light RRI QRM. Another day with an

Hope this was a one day only event!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, cut off at 1201*,
March 15. Mixing with RRI. So the sign off time is just varying a

(3260) with 1206*.

CHINA. 6115 switching to 4900, Voice of Strait, 1259-1300,
March 14. New time for changing frequencies (ex: 1200); 6115,
there till 1259, closing just before time pips; then 4900 starts up
just after the time pips, so they were off the air during pips; fair.
Believe must be the same for VOS on 9505 moving to 4940,
now at 1300 (ex: 1200).

5050, "Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio," 1400, March 12. Pips;

background music); then in English "BBR Evening News" and

on frequency.

JAPAN. 774, JOUB Akita (NHK-2), 1245, March 15. Start of the

Mindanao; spot for ASEAN; closing SA/ID for "DZRP" (the only time
I have heard this callsign used in an SA/ID); choral National Anthem;
tones and off. Most days now am having decent reception on all
frequencies, so a nice change in propagation.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, 1227-1235, March 19. One of their
best days; recently had unusable signals, but today nicely above

HOA music/singing; clear of any jamming till *1505 start of

Last heard VOBME 2, on 7180 kHz., in late Dec. 2016.

No signal found today around 7146.55 (VOBME 1); to be sure
I checked after 1505 and heard no jamming, so safe to say only

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1414, March 26.
At the end of their local news, gave SA/ID and played the patriotic
song, "Bagimu Negeri," which was composed in 1942, by Koesbini;
followed by SA/ID "Programa Satu RRI Palangkaraya"; unusually good
propagation, providing decent reception. My audio http://goo.gl/KEs00J .

3344.86, RRI Ternate, March 26, with outstanding propagation;
1313-1324 & 1334-1406; coverage of some event; a lot of back-
ground sounds; EZL music. My audio at http://goo.gl/5EDzQ4 .

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6040, a new alternate frequency? Never used
before? Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata (Japan), ex: 5935, on Mar 26,
at 1328 was in Korean, but switched over to Japanese for the second
half of their schedule at 1330; good reception, with no jamming here,
as that was still down on ex 5935.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, March 26, a day with
outstanding propagation; at 1126 speeches and applause; in Pidgin/
Tok Pisin; preempted regular programs; "We come together to
celebrate ..."; 1154 back to regular programs; 1159 "NBC Madang"
SA/ID.

1205 - Stacy Rose SA/IDs her Sunday program: "You are listening to
Island Praise, right here on the Voice of Papua New Guinea, 90.7 FM";
started playing Caribbean gospel songs at 1203; suddenly off. Wish
they would air her entire program, but they never do! "Island Praise"
Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ipraize/ , with messages sent
in from PNG.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM 96.3 relay, via SIBC, 1250-
1310 and still on at 1420+, on March 26; another Sunday with non-stop
religious (Christian) songs; sung mostly in English, but some in Pijin;
"Amazing Grace," "Praise the Lord," etc; many SA/IDs ("This is Wantok
FM 96.3. Good times, great music," etc.); mostly fair, on a day with
outstanding propagation. My audio at http://goo.gl/ODMtq3 .

ANGOLA[non-log]. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola, on March 27,
another day this station was silent; 0300 and subsequent checking
till 0357, with no trace of a carrier.

ERITREA. 7175, VOBME 2 (presumed), on March 27. A long
phone conversation 1445-1501; into HOA music till hit at *1502
with the start of strong white noise (or DRM?) jamming, blocking
reception; weak; some ham QRM, but not much. Nothing heard
around their other frequency of 7146.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6040, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata,
continues to be free of N. Korea jamming on this new frequency,
on March 27, at 1331; scheduled 1300-1400.

6090, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, on March 27, at 1406. In Japanese
with the usual segment "A message from the Japanese Government";
into what I assume was the programming of "Furusato No Kaze"
("Wind of Hometown") program (per Hiroshi), still in Japanese;
fair-good with no jamming, but faint CNR2 QRM far underneath.

SIKKIM[non-log]. 4835, AIR Gangtok. March 27, had my local
sunrise at 1400 UT. Gangtok was unheard, not even a faint carrier,
at 1357, nor later at 1506, on March 27. Unusual for them to be
off the air!

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC format of extended program of
non-stop pop songs (The Angels - "My Boyfriend's Back," etc.), on
March 27, from 1333 till still there at 1505; started out fair, but slowly
went downhill; no SA/IDs or any announcements, so clearly unlike the
Wantok FM relay heard yesterday.


Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (9) Ron Howard - Mar 29, 2017 00:06 UTC No.2199
ERITREA. 7175, VOBME 2 (presumed), on March 28, from 1414
to 1500, heard with only open carrier; audio seemed to start at 1500;
HOA music till again hit at *1502 with the start of strong white noise
(or DRM?) jamming, blocking reception. Again nothing heard around
their other frequency of 7146.

INDONESIA. 9524.96, VOI, 1307, March 28. Surprisingly semi-
readable; end of "Commentary"; "Today in History" (2005 had 8.6
quake; 1979 had nuclear accident at Three Mile Island; 1999 had
146 killed in the Kosovo War); into "Focus." Not often that this is
heard so well.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1319-1322, March 28. Special
live coverage of the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) Asian Cup
qualification soccer match; in vernacular; Myanmar vs India, being
held in Yangon; usual background sounds for such an event (crowd
cheering, loudspeaker, etc.); preempted regular programming; fair.

PHILIPPINES[non-log]. 15640 // 17700 // 17820, R. Pilipinas.
Recently had been hearing them daily with decent reception 0200+,
but March 28 they were off the air; none of their frequencies heard
with any trace of a carrier. Do not believe it was poor propagation.
Probably power outage, due to Manila now having very high
temperatures.

ROMANIA. 6180, RRI, 0456*, March 28. Looking for Brazil (still
off the air), but instead heard this with their new schedule (0400-
0456); fairly strong, so when Brazil returns, this frequency will be
a mess for an hour.

SIKKIM[non-log]. 4835, AIR Gangtok. March 28, continues off
the air; also confirmed silent today by Mauno Ritola.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1146-1201, March 28. DJ in
Pijin reading many texted messages; pop songs; 1155 "Welcome
to our Evening Devotional"; "closing down" SA/ID & NA; much better
reception than normal.

1201, seamless change from SIBC programming over to the extended
broadcast of Wantok FM 96.3 relay of non-stop pop songs (Eagles -
"One of These Nights," Fleetwood Mac - "Landslide," etc.); frequent
SA/IDs ("Listen to the hottest sounds . . . with the hottest DJs, 96.3," "This
is Wantok FM 96.3. Good times, great music," etc.) and still heard at
1511+.

USA[non-log]. 7505v, WRNO was still silent 0244+, on March 28.

Hello! Ron-san,

I'm sorry for taking rather a while to reply to it.
Could you please forward this Answer for information on to Mauno-san?

Answer from Chulsu-san (Republic Korea):

Mr.Mauno and Mr.Ron, Thanks for your question.

I can hear bubble jamming in Seoul at 1584 kHz.
Meanwhile, the Chinese broadcasting station was also heard.
The following link is the received audio in Seoul.
Please listen to it.

2017/03/28 2309KST(1409UTC) MW 1584kHz Recevied in Seoul, Korea
http://k003.kiwi6.com/hotlink/3bckb0sedc/170328tue2309_Seoul_1584kHz.mp3
(03min15sec - 03min26sec 1575kHz, 03min29sec - 03min48sec 1593kHz)
I also recorded frequencies around 1584 kHz.
You can hear Chinese stations with 3 frequencies.

This is my personal opinion.
I certainly feel that North Korea is sending jamming waves at 1584 kHz.
But, there are few broadcasting stations targeted by North Korea to transmit jamming waves at 1584 kHz.
This frequency is used from South Korea is "KBS-1 Daejeon, Geumsan Relay Station" and "KBS-1 Jinju, Suncheong Relay Station" are two broadcasting stations.
Both broadcasters are 1 kW broadcasters, small power.
I think that North Korea is not sending jamming waves to these two stations.
Currently I think that it is difficult to identify where jamming is being sent from, and what the purpose is.

Best regards,

Chulsu

Re: Eritrea [non-log] Ron Howard - Mar 31, 2017 16:13 UTC No.2203
ERITREA[non-log]. 7175, VOBME 2, on March 31, checking 
from 1425 to past 1502+; looking for an open carrier or any audio,
but none heard; this was confirmed by the absence of any of the
usual white noise jamming, that recently had consistently been
starting at *1502, that is whenever VOBME was on the air. I
scanned this area 1502+ looking for any white noise jamming
(7146, 7175, 7180, 7185, etc.), but didn't hear any, so clearly
VOBME was off the air today.

CHINA. 5979, Gannan PBS, 1319, April 1. Has been close
to four months now since they moved from ex 5970 to this unique
frequency. It was Dec 3 that Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) first
noted the change. Heard today in Chinese, with a weak signal.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok. After being silent for some days,
heard their open carrier on April 1, at 1256; another day of OTH
radar strong QRM, but the carrier was strong enough to cut through
it.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, via SIBC, 1232,
April 1. Another day with an extended broadcast; non-stop pop
songs, with brief Wantok SA/IDs; still on at 1350, but gone by 1409.

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1326-1340, April 1. Definitely
in English; only able to make out a word here and there; seemed
news till 1331; went to non-HOA pop music; 1340 the usual HOA
theme music to end this 20 minute English segment. My local
sunrise was at 1353 UTC.

VANUATU. 7259.96, R. Vanuatu. April 1, with much better than
normal reception; various amounts of QRM (hams, etc.).

Highlights:

1139-1155: Interview in vernacular; few words in English
("employment information").

1155-1158: Indigenous pop song.

1158-1203: Preaching (Christian) in vernacular.

1203-1229: Non-stop Christian religious songs, many in English.

1229: Clear "Radio Vanuatu" SA/ID.

My edited audio at http://goo.gl/27xiGc .

Am still not hearing them on 3944.2.

Re: Radio Vanuatu Ron Howard - Apr 02, 2017 18:40 UTC No.2205
VANUATU. 7259.96, R. Vanuatu. April 2 (Sunday), with the 
second day of superior reception; found it hard to tune away,
as it's not often heard so well.

Highlights:

1134-1200: Syndicated Christian religious program in English -
"Tomorrow's World," talking about witchcraft, Halloween, the
occult, video games and Harry Potter.

1230-1300: Religious program in vernacular & religious music/
singing; nice organ music.

1300-1320: "Radio Vanuatu" SA/ID; drums & blowing of conch shell;
news in vernacular ("Vanuatu's foreign policy priorities"; cultural
exchange between Vanuatu & New Caledonia; Solomon Islands
government minister; etc.).

1320: "Sports News."

1332: Drums & blowing of conch shell.

1440-1453 & 1521-1528: EZL songs; strange they played several xmas
songs ("White Christmas," etc.). Surprised to be able to still hear them
this late.

CHINA. 9505, Voice of Strait (Minnan language service), 1300,

up a matter of seconds later. 6115 also switched over to 4940
("Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio," as SA/IDed on Saturdays after
"Focus on China" English program [1500-1530]), which started
audio at 1301.

After almost three months of being on 4900, guess we can call this a
permanent change of frequency.

LAOS. 6130, Lao National Radio, 1404, April 26. In Chinese till
1424 indigenous music; 1430 switched over to English; 典his is the

1501 French; poor; not very readable, but able to confirm languages.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1328, April 26. Usual BoH
(their local ToH) format of singing SA/ID, giving three different "kilohertz"
frequencies, followed by chimes; in vernacular; almost good. My
local sunrise was at 1319 UT and their local sunset was at 1223 UT.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1226-1240, April 26. Doing
fairly well, but mixing with CNR1; traditional songs; after 1230 started to
also hear R. Thazin (Myanmar) underneath; Russia lost out to the other
two stations about 1240. Unable to hear // 7295.

Somalia: Seven journalists quit Puntland State TV, coverage on the blink 
Aug 10, 2015 - Garowe Online

GAROWE, Somalia, August 10, 2015 (Garowe Online)-Seven journalists including editor and program producers ditched their jobs,
putting the coverage of Puntland State Television on the blink, Garowe Online reports.

In late September, state broadcaster staff members protested long overdue salaries, however.
Strikebreaking measures carried on by the presidency quelled the lag in the coverage.

Their broadcasting is irregular, day able to hear shortwave 13800kHz has become less.

Re: Puntland Radio 13800kHz SRI - Oct 13, 2015 06:21 UTC No.256
Puntland Radio was reactivated after short absense from October 8, 2015.


On October 12, It could be heard beyond 1830 (s/off until 1930).
On October 13, It can be already heard at 0535 under Radio Dabanga.
It inserted Radio program for short time in the middle of PLTV's relay.
It seems that their program for radio broadcast is still Somali music only.
We can be heard Puntland Radio's ID during this slot.

Fixed ID in Italian, English and Somali, were given at 1148 and 1211 on October 12, 0557 on October 13.

In Japan, it is difficult to hear Puntland Radio on 13800 kHz in this season.
We need the help of DXer and Remote Receiver in Europe for check it.

OK, but, but the QRM conditions may be entirely different by then.
Must we assume all these are direct, no relays? 2300 is also a new
time for any English broadcast, rather late for Africa; 1400 had
been only on 9640 for SE Asia in A-16. Times are not explicitly
labeled UT, but probably. Are they also carrying out such tests in
other languages? (Glenn Hauser, DXLD)

Re: Africa - ELWA on 4760 kHz. Ron Howard - Oct 12, 2016 16:47 UTC No.1770
Back from vacation :)

LIBERIA, 4760, ELWA (presumed), 1457-1529, Oct 12. Often
I check here for AIR Port Blair during my mornings, but today
was a first for me, hearing Africa via long path; no trace of AIR at
all; certainly sounded like an African vernacular language; some
religious songs; series of ads; seemed to be religious programs;
my local sunrise was at 1413 UT. Positive was not India. My weak
audio of preaching at http://goo.gl/Oecbc4

Re: Africa - not ELWA on 4760 kHz. Ron Howard - Oct 12, 2016 18:07 UTC No.1771
Oooops - Thanks to Jari Savolainen (Finland) for pointing
out my error. I must have in fact been hearing TWR,
scheduled in Shona at that time. Sorry for the mistake.

Appreciate the correction!

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (8) Ron Howard - Oct 12, 2016 20:09 UTC No.1772
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1156*, Oct 12. Before
going off, mixing with RRI Palangkaraya (which was later not on the
air at 1339, so RRI went off very early today).

INDONESIA. 9525.9, VOI, Oct 12 with anomaly; 1141 in English;
1221 still in English; 1304 normal English segment (news, "Commentary,"
"Focus," "News in Brief," "Indonesian Wonders," "Let's Speak Bahasa
Indonesia," but no "Today in History"); mostly fair and readable, but with
audio hum; 1402 still in English.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1203*, Oct 12. Did
not complete the "NBC News in Brief"; poor.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands (presumed), 1203, Oct 12. Just an
open carrier here, but below threshold level, so no audio; still on the
air at 1236

[non-log] 7324.95 Wantok Radio Light. Oct 12 checking at 1235
only to find the frequency completely clear; so CRI (7325.0) is
also silent at this time.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay via SIBC, 1204,
Oct 12. Playing the usual pop songs (Air Supply with "Even The
Nights Are Better," etc.); frequent IDs ("This is Wantok FM 96.3.
Good times, great music," etc.); off the air for several minutes
about 1222; still broadcasting at 1303.

UNID on 5020, with open carrier here today at 1436. Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan) has also been hearing this; the open
carrier (no audio) is much weaker than SIBC is normally heard.

TAJIKISTAN. 4790, BBC Uzbek, 1328-1330*, Oct 12. Another day
with no CNR1 programming jamming; poor/CODAR QRM; off after
time pips.

VANUATU. 7260 (slightly on the low side), R. Vanuatu (presumed),
1237, Oct 12. Playing pop songs ("Easy Like Sunday Morning" by
Lionel Richie, etc.); China QRM; checking 3944.2 after 1400 and
surprised to not even hear an open carrier from them.

Re: Myanmar - New program schedule Ron Howard - Oct 17, 2016 14:55 UTC No.1792
MYANMAR. New program schedule. Starting in
Feb 2014, through April 2016, I had enjoyed hearing
the Radio Australia language lessons on 9730
(Myanmar Radio), on Monday and Wednesday.
During April, I was no longer hearing this unique show.

Oct 17 (Monday), finally found their new schedule for
the R. Australia produced "English for Business," on
5985, from 1215 to 1235; "Lesson 16, A Presentation";
full transcript of today's show at http://goo.gl/RhAa0H ;
believe their schedule for this program will be sometime
during the 1200-1300 UT segment, on Monday and
Wednesday. In the past the exact timing of these
programs usually varied somewhat.

It will be recalled that back in Nov 2013, ABC signed an
agreement with Myanmar to share programming (full
2013 story at http://goo.gl/VVSOl8 ).

Based on some of my recent observations, Myanmar Radio,
on 5985, also has the following:

VOA's Special English on Wednesday, during a portion of
1530-1600.

NHK's "Friends Around the World" on Thursday and Friday,

NHK also produces a radio drama in the Burmese language
for Myanmar Radio, but am not sure of the schedule on 5985.

Appreciate any corrections or additions.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1137-1200*, Oct 19. Mixing with PBS 
Yunnan - Voice Shangri-la (today also 1200*); playing pop songs
(Nobel prize winner for literature Bob Dylan with "Just Like a
Woman," etc.).

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, on Oct 13, nice to hear English
SA/IDs (". . . Voice Shangri-la") at 1130 and again at 1139; mixing
with Bhutan/BBS; 1200*. Oct 15 with classical orchestra music
1205-1223*, with Bhutan/BBS already off the air. Oct 18 again
with classical music 1200-1206*; Oct 19 with 1200*.

7200, Firedragon (musical jamming), 1130, Oct 19; very strong
against RTI, along with the usual CNR1 jamming.

INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1114, Oct 13.
Tuning by, noted that they were playing the patriotic song
釘agimu Negeri・(For You Our Country) and local ID; this
song was composed by Indonesian musician and composer
Koesbini, in 1942; much stronger than NBC Bougainville;
http://goo.gl/XTawQP has a studio quality rendition of "Bagimu
Negeri."

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1235-1255, with the Wednesday
(Oct 19) language "Lesson 16, A Presentation," which was a repeat of
the Monday show (heard 1215-1235); strong N. Korea pulsating noise
jamming till 1251, which was warming up for Shiokaze; after jamming
off, almost fair; always starts and ends with the same theme music. As
often noted in the past when this was formerly on 9730, the Monday
show is on the air earlier than the Wednesday program.

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed), on Oct 14, 15 and 17, hear
at various times between *1100-1300*; mostly EZL music and in Chinese;
suddenly went off the air in mid-music. Oct 18 and 19 not on during 1100-
1300, but Oct 18 did find then with the usual 1000* (is off the air 1000-1100),
suddenly went off the air. Scheduling here is never what I would call regular.
9774 seems to only be on the air very rarely and I have not heard that in a
long time.

Start of the Thursday only edition of KGI (Kang Guru Indonesia);
clearly in English, but not very readable; able to make out Greg
Worrell's voice; 1253 contact info for KGI and thanking the
Australian government for support, in both English and in Bahasa

KYRGYZSTAN. 4009.8, Radio Birinchi via Kyrgyz. After a long
time of being off frequency, I noted on Sept 19 that they were
on exact frequency (confirmed by Wolfy) and subsequently heard
as such, but on Oct 19 & 20 they are now back to again being off
frequency. What happened?

MYANMAR/BURMA. 7200, Myanmar Radio. Oct 20, at 1300
noted both RTI and CNR1 jamming went off the air after the time
pips; expected to hear Myanmar, but not on the air; during
subsequent checking till 1350 and still off the air, but heard at
1421 with fair-good reception.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. Surprised to hear this on
Oct 20, at 0357. That would be about 4 hours before their sunset! At
0400 the usual IS (Jew's harp) and time pips; into the news; unable
to hear 7295 due to strong QRM there. This was a first for me, to hear
them at this time period.

MALAYSIA. 6050 (Asyik FM) // 9835 (Sarawak FM), 0946-
1027, Oct 21. Prime Minister Razak speaking before Parliament,
to deliver the 2017 budget; mostly in vernacular, but briefly "If
you want to reach the people, educate their children"; his speech
was interrupted by the opposition lawmakers who at one point
loudly protested and caused a ruckus till they finally walked out
on the PM's speech; preempted regular programming; after
1027 no longer //; mostly fair on 9835, while 6050 was poor.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, 1500, Oct 22. Saturday only English
program "Focus on China"; started with Air Supply singing "Making
Love Out of Nothing at All"; on Monday, China sent two "astronauts"
into space for 30 days (actually "taikonauts" would seem to be a more
accurate word); reviewed the history of China's space program; SA/ID
"You are now listening to Focus on China, Voice of Strait Broadcast
Station"; mostly fair.

[non-log] 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice Shangri-la), seemed to already be
off the air when first checked at 1142; only BBS/Bhutan heard till 1201*.

INDONESIA[non logs]. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, Oct 22 noted
off the air at 1203 and subsequent checking. RRI Wamena also silent
today on 4869.89, at 1332, leaving the frequency clear for AIR (Delhi-
Kingsway) on 4870.57, which has been off frequency since I first noticed
it on Sept 4.

MALAYSIA[non-log]. 11665, Wai FM. Oct 22 continues to be silent.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, Oct 21. Doing fairly well at start
of their English segment at 1530. Fairly clear audio of the theme music
and SA/ID at http://goo.gl/oHCX1Y , which goes something like:

"Hello listeners. Good evening. Here is our final transmission for today,
radiating on 5985 kHz., 50.13 meters, 576 kHz., 520 meters and 594 kHz,
505 meters. Now we start with the news."

BTW - My Box.com audio was delayed on Oct 21, as that site was
one that was hit with the distributed denial of service attack (DDoS).
Could not access their site for hours.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA[non-log]. 7324.96, Wantok Radio Light. Now
that Shiokaze has moved away for their *1405 (now down on 5985),
this frequency is once again clear to check for WRL, but not heard
at 1408, on Oct 22. Has been off the air for a long time now.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay, 1217-1302, Oct 21.
Yet another extended broadcast; pops songs; Wantok FM SA/IDs (very
different format than the SIBC extended broadcast of only Public
Service Announcements, commercial announcements and no SA/IDs);
audio ended at 1302, but open carrier with decent strength was
noted past 1337.

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed), 1134, Oct 22. Very weak
signal, but certainly here with music.

VANUATU. 7260 (slightly on the low side), R. Vanuatu, 1205-1305,
Oct 22. Religious program in vernacular, along with some religious
songs; into program of non-stop pop songs (Elton John with "Can You
Feel the Love Tonight," etc.); 1304 drums and conch shell horn before
the news; some China QRM.

3944.2 has been unheard for a while now; not even a trace of a carrier.

ANGOLA. 4949.73, R. Nacional de Angola, 0312-0410, Oct 24.
Outstanding propagation; rarely heard at this level; numerous
clear SA/IDs ("Radio Nacional de Angola"); African and EZL pop
songs; 0400 time pips; news; as Wolfy has already reported
today, after 0410 there was intermittent digital noise (QRM); a
radio drama noted at 0438 with no QRM; still being heard at
0529. Enjoyed this unusual reception! Audio http://goo.gl/K7lPiF

BHUTAN. 6035.0, BBS, 1144-1200*, Oct 23. Pop songs and
announcer clearly in English; PBS Yunnan off the air before 1200.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1242-1314, Oct 23. The usual
Sunday program of American country & western songs ("You
Do Your Thing" by Montgomery Gentry, "Cups" by Anna
Kendrick, etc.); DJ in English; at times almost fair. Not my
favorite music, but knowing it was coming all the way from
Shillong, made it more palatable.

5040, AIR Jeypore, 1331, Oct 23. Fair signal with subcontinent
music. Many times during my local mornings, this is the strongest
AIR regional station that I hear.

5050, AIR Aizawl, 1220-1230, Oct 23. Local SA/ID; into some type of
news in English; 1225-1230 in Hindi; 1230 with the New Delhi audio
feed of the news in English, giving clear ID "This is All India Radio.
The news read by . ."; very respectable signal strength, even though
mixing with Beibu Bay Radio (CHINA).

KOREA NORTH. 3277.0 (AM), V28 ("The Parrot"), 1336-1339*,
Oct 23. Korean numbers station; poor.

TIBET. 4905, Xizang PBS (Tibetan Service) via Lhasa, 1139, Oct 23.
For several weeks now this frequency has been totally clear of the long
standing RTTY QRM, during my local mornings; fair-good and // 4920
(fair/light QRM). Wonderful not to hear the RTTY!

1532-1545*, Oct 25. News and "Commentary" in English; not
very readable with CNR1 QRM; during the news at 1536
"This is Bangladesh Betar with the news"; in another month
should have much better reception.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on Oct 25,
tuned in at 1017 and during subsequent checking till 1205, heard
only one station here - RRI Palangkaraya; no NBC at all here or
on 6020.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Salam FM, 1501, Oct 25. Islamic programming
(reciting from the Qur'an, etc.); in vernacular; many singing SA/IDs;
1515 SA/ID with "shortwave" and "FM" frequencies; still on the air at
1530, which is unusual, as they normally pull the plug shortly after
1500.

Probably stayed on longer than usual due to Asyik FM starting very
late today on 6050; Asyik not heard at 1040, 1220, 1234, 1305 nor
1330 (only Tibet heard). Finally at 1444 heard Asyik FM with very

BTW - 11665, Wai FM, on Oct 25, still silent.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1144-1202*, Oct 25.

before the start of the news.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands (presumed), 1203, 1218 & 1223,
Oct 25. Decent level open carrier, but no audio heard.

TIBET. 6200, Xizang PBS via Lhasa, 1600, Oct 25. The 滴oly Tibet・br>program in English; usual intro - 典his is Holy Tibet, presented to you
by China Tibet Broadcasting. Find out the history and reality on the
roof of the world and keep in touch with the developments and changes
in Tibet. This is Holy Tibet・ news items.

BTW - Voice of Jinling (CHINA), signed off here at 1501* today.

UNIDENTIFIED. 3210, after almost daily checking here, on Oct 25 had a
definite station for a brief time at 1426; announcer and faint music; not
very usable and too weak to get any meaningful details, but seemed to
be a positive sign of some activity here. My local sunrise at 1425 UTC.
Perhaps will have better results in the coming months? Of course hope
this will turn out to be Unique Radio, the low powered Australian station.

peace and prosperity, "Thank you for your hospitality"; thanks
given to the organizers of the event and a prayer given; another
speech in English by a young woman; 1157 into Pidgin and
mentioned "5:30 AM tomorrow morning"; unable to make just who
was giving the speech, but he must have been an important
official; off the air just after "NBC Bougainville" SA/ID; light
QRM from RRI Palangkaraya.

INDONESIA. 9525.9, VOI (Channel II program), Oct 26 anomaly
at 1316. Not the normal VOI Channel I English programs of news,
commentary, Today in History, Focus, etc.; today played a lot of EZL
music; 1321 talking about the Jakarta weather, in English; 1326 back

TAIWAN[non-log]. 9410, Fu Hsing BS. For a long time now it has been
possible for me to hear Taiwan (when they were broadcasting, which was
not daily) in the *1100-1300* time period. Unfortunately on Oct 30, the
B16 schedule started, resulting in my hearing CNR5 here (scheduled

New frequency of 7180.0, VOBME 2 (presumed),

singing; not // 7146.55; both almost fair reception.

KOREA NORTH[non]. New frequencies for Shiokaze/

New 6145. Finally moved away from ex: 7410, where they
had very strong QRM from CRI; now on 6145 they have
light QRM from PBS Qinghai; Shiokaze schedule 1300-
1400; noted closing info at 1356, in English; off at 1400*,
at which time I heard RTI start up, along with CNR1
jamming, which completely blocked PBS Qinghai after
1400.

New 5910. Ex: 7325; at *1405, all in Japanese; Shiokaze
intro; usual segment of "Message from the Japanese
Government"; assume into "Furusato No Kaze" ("Wind
of Hometown") program; fair, with no jamming from North
Korea yet.

AUSTRALIA. 4835, ABC Alice Springs NT, 1103-1123, Nov 24.
"Grandstand," with coverage of the cricket match between Australia
vs South Africa, played in Adelaide; interview with captain of the
RSA team; fair. Not carried by RA (9580, 12065 & 12085).

ERITREA. 7180.0, VOBME 2, brief check at 1428, Nov 24, found
them with fair reception; with 7146.55 (VOBME 1) being off the air.

INDONESIA. 4869.9, Pro 1 RRI Wamena, 1232-1302, Thursday,
Nov 24. Kang Guru Indonesia ("KGI") mostly in English, but a few
short segments in Bahasa Indonesia; intro by "Ana" & "Greg"; "Kang
Guru is here, helping you with English"; this was a repeat of the Aug
25 program that I heard here, in which the segment "Good neighbors
make good friends" talked about differences between walking or riding
in Australia and Indonesia; semi-readable; certainly one of their better
Thursday receptions.

KOREA SOUTH. 6135, Voice of Freedom (clandestine), 1556,
Nov 23. Scheduled to be off between 1500-1600; choral National
Anthem; time pips (3+1); into Korean programming; first time I
have heard their sign on; heard through the usual white noise.

MADAGASCAR. 5011.77, R. Madagasikara (presumed), 1519-
1542, Nov 23. Has been many years since I last heard them here;
variety of music; language sounded right to be them, but too weak
to catch an SA/ID. My local sunrise at 1455 UT, their sunset at 1510 UT,
so nice grayline reception.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1545-1554, Wednesday,
Nov 23. VOA Special English show about Christian singer Be
Be Winans and played some of his music; very readable; mostly
fair. Full transcript and audio streaming of today's show is at
http://goo.gl/givG6D .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1308-1426*, Nov 24. Today had
a SIBC extended broadcast; no SA/IDs, unlike the numerous IDs when
it's a Wantok FM relay; several PSA/promos ("a message from
National ..."); playing non-stop pop/rap songs and one beautiful
Pacific Islands song; one of their better days for listening to music,
but as usual, a hard time deciphering their Public Service
Announcement.

INDIA. 4896.0, AIR Kurseong, occasionally this off frequency
anomaly happens, as it did today (Nov 29), as noted at 1308;
normally, on most days, heard on 4895.0.

4970, AIR Shillong, at 1056, on Nov 29, with unique AIR IS.

JAPAN. 774, JOUB Akita (NHK-2), 1347, on Nov 29, with Chinese
language lesson and of course also in Japanese; confirming that
they still do have lessons in other than just English; almost fair and
certainly is the easiest Trans-Pacific for me to hear.

NEWFOUNDLAND. 6159.96, CKZN. The good news with Vancouver
(CKZU) currently off the air is that this station can now be heard in the
clear; Nov 29, heard 1035-1050 & 1129-1200; local times given, saying
was the "same for most of Labrador," but I note was not the time in St.
John's; local weather; school closures; sports scores; "part one" about
the documentary "Power of the Sweatlodge"; story of a man trying to get
help for his wife, but mental health facilities in "Labrador West" are not
good; reception poor-fair. Very nice to hear them at a decent level for a
change here on the west coast!

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC extended broadcast on Nov 29,
1310-1321, with non-stop pop songs (no SA/IDs), so not a Wantok FM
relay; at 1321 the music stopped and they just had dead air (open
carrier), which was still on the air at 1333 tuned out.

TAIWAN. 9774.0, Fu Hsing BS (presumed). Extremely rare to catch
them on this frequency! Nov 29, 1236-1300*; in Chinese with some
music; at times below threshold level audio (but still open carrier);
carrier went off at 1300*, conforming to their schedule. Their other
9410 blocked by CNR5, so unable to confirm //.

VANUATU. 7259.95, R. Vanuatu, 1403-1518, Nov 28. Announcers
in vernacular playing pop Pacific Islands songs and C&W songs
("Colder Weather" sung by Zac Brown Band, etc.); sounded like
promo for "Voice of Bong Yumi"; some ads; 1420 several clear
"Radio Vanuatu" SA/IDs; one of their better receptions; no China
QRM, but slight ham QRM; my sunrise was at 1459 UT.

3944.2, after 1401, not hearing Radio Vanuatu at all; not even a trace
of a carrier, which has been the case for a while now. "RN2, Radio
Nikkei" (Japan) signs off on 3945.0 at 1401* (during weekdays).

BTW - Guess I have not been paying enough attention to RN2 SA/IDs, as
for a long time in the past they just gave "RN2," but now am hearing
mostly "RN2, Radio Nikkei" SA/IDs, which are new to me.

CHINA. new frequency 5979 for Gannan PBS (ex: 5970).
Was first noted by Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) on Dec 3.
I observed them today (Dec 5), from 1314 till off sometime
between 1346-1349, which corresponds to Hiroyuki's recent
observations. Radio Marti (5980) is not much of a problem
for me while in LSB.

Expected to hear relay of CNR11 (per Aoki 1300-1400), but
in fact clearly not // to 7350 (CNR11); by 1340 was able to
confirm 7350 // 6010, due to unique Tibetan chanting being
heard; 6010 (CNR11) is between the strong jamming on
6003 & 6015, so extremely poor reception there.

Also unable to confirm Gannan PBS was // 3990, as there was
only an open carrier there (unable to get any audio).

6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice Shangri-la), Dec 5 noted running past
their normal sign off time 1200* by at least two hours; rare anomaly.
Thanks to an alert from Dave Valko on the east coast (USA), I tuned
in at 1254 to hear non-stop classical western orchestra music with
many one minute breaks (dead air) between selection; this is
normal for them when running past 1200; still on the air at 1402+.

CHINA. 5979.0, Gannan PBS (ex: 5970), 1324-1351*, Dec 7.
Better reception than yesterday; definitely not relaying CNR11
(per Aoki 1300-1400), as 7350 // 6010 (CNR11) had a lot of
unique Tibetan chanting/singing; while Gannan PBS was mostly
announcers in Chinese; heard best in LSB.

5900, CNR1 jamming of RTI (*1200-1400*), at 1256, on Dec 7.

9680, Firedragon music jamming of RTI (*1100-1400*), at 1258,

ERITREA. 7146.55, VOBME 1 (presumed), 1411, on Dec 7,

MONGOLIA. reactivated 4830, Mongolian Radio 2. Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan) first reported their return on Dec 2; only
weak audio heard on Dec 7, at 1311 and 1358-1400.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (presumed), 1410, Dec 7. Hearing
traces of subcontinent music, but very faint, under ABC (with "Night

one about being "morally upright" (today is International Anti-

VANUATU. 7259.95, R. Vanuatu, 0531-0634, Dec 10. Surprised to
hear them so early and with decent signal; 0531-0617 SA/ID and into long
interview in vernacular; pop songs; series of SA/IDs at 0621 (something
like - Monday and Saturday, Radio Vanuatu, Voice of Tomorrow); nice
Pacific Islands song and "Can't Help Falling in Love with You" by Elvis
Presley; a very good day for them.

AUSTRALIA. RA on Dec 17, found 9580 silent 1422 +
1448, when also unable to hear 12065 nor 12085, but at
1616 did hear 12065 (very faint) // 12085 (fair), with ABC
program of pop songs; program SA/ID "This is Double J";
9580 still off the air. 4835 ABC Alice Springs NT well
heard at 1422 with xmas songs.

RA still with one transmitter off on Dec 18; noted 17840
was off the air; 15240 // 15415, at 0300, with poor reception,
but by 0422 was readable; no RA SA/IDs, only "ABC Local
Radio" and many promos for "ABC news" & "ABC Grand-
stand"; 0513 interview with someone from "Double J."

So both 9580 & 17840 are silent, which normally would
be their strongest frequencies.

7200 [non-log], Myanmar Radio. Back on Nov 7, first noted that
they were no longer here after 1300, at which time the PRC

So Myanmar changed their schedule back in early November
and has not been heard on 7200 since, during frequent checks

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS,
suddenly on at *1235, on Dec 19, with the start of
the Monday only SAARC (The South Asian
Association for Regional Cooperation) news
bulletin in English; mixing with CNR1; item about
Friday's (Dec 16) national celebration of the 46th
"Victory Day" festivities, with President Hamid and
Prime Minister Hasina placing wreaths at the
"National Memorial" to pay tribute to the martyred
freedom fighters; 1242 "This is the end of the SAARC
news bulletin" (did not spell out SAARC, but pronounced
it as a word); into Bangla; at 1252 brief weather conditions
in English ("partly cloudy" and gave temperatures), which
is a daily feature.

Any Monday that I am able to make out specific SAARC
news items, is a very good day indeed!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1150-1156*,
Dec 19. Very nice to have them back on the air again,
after being off for awhile; DJ playing xmas song "Joy to
the World"; suddenly off; did not hear RRI Palangkaraya;
poor.

CHINA. 5979, Gannan PBS (ex: 5970). So for two weeks
now they have continued to use this new frequency; Dec 16,
1331, sounded Chinese; best in LSB, but Cuban jamming
of Radio Marti (5980) is a slight problem; ex: 5970 now a
clear frequency.

Dec 19, for the first time, able to make out 5979 // 3990, at
1317, in Chinese and playing EZL music.

7415, Firedragon (music jamming), 1636, Dec 18; fair-good
against R. Free Asia.

KOREA SOUTH. 5900, Numbers Station V24, 1606-
1608*, Dec 18. Numbers given in Korean.

MADAGASCAR. 5007.68-5007.75v, R. Madagasikara
(presumed), on Dec 18, with moderate drifting; 1457-1600*.

Thorsten Hallmann has recently noted *1700v, so it looks
like they are just off the air for an hour (1600-1700). Checked
if they went to another frequency, but 7105 was silent (last
heard during the 2010 World Cup football/soccer matches
on a regular basis, but not since then) and unable to hear
6135, due to the jamming by N. Korea and broadcast of
Voice of Freedom via S. Korea.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Salam FM, 1510-1602*, Dec 17. Nice
anomaly, as normally this is used as filler after 1500 till they
suddenly pull the plug shortly after that; in vernacular; played
a lot of EZL music; some phone calls; many SA/IDs; better than
fair.

ETHIOPIA. 6030, Radio Oromiya (presumed), 1540, Dec 27. Nice

poor, but not too bad.

7236.89v, R. Ethiopia (presumed), 1552, Dec 27. Thanks to Glenn

time pips; started with "Radio Sakha" ID; light RRI QRM, signing
on at 0300 (with IS before 0300); 0450 the usual time for them to
give "Radio Sakha" ID, followed by series of ads (one with rooster
crowing); off with IS (Jew's harp) and time pips (4+1) at 0500*; 7345
many times stronger than 7295, which after 0330 was unusable.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020 [non-log], on Dec 27 (and other days

broadcasting past 1200.

9545, SIBC, 0433-0448 & 0501*, Dec 28. Better than normal reception;
DJ in Pijin, but commercial announcements in English (Enterprises Ltd.

6145, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze via Yamata (Japan), on Dec 29 
(Thursday). Special year end program in Japanese, recorded
back on Dec 10 (Youtube at http://goo.gl/sMw2Id), preempted
the usual English on Thursday; *1300-1400*, with first half
announcers and monologues, with second half an orchestra
playing variety of music (Xmas song "Jingle Bells," etc.); nice
reception with no N. Korea jamming; SA/IDs "JSR Shiokaze";
program co-sponsored by "Furusato No Kaze" ("Wind of
Hometown").

After Shiokaze sign off at 1400*, clearly heard the start of RTI,
later joined by CNR1 jamming; both of which totally blocked
PBS Qinghai.

BTW - As always, very much appreciate Hiroshi's website

ANGOLA. 4949.73, R. Nacional de Angola, Dec 29, back on the
air after being silent yesterday; believe propagation was not a factor
in yesterdays non-reception, as there was not even a faint carrier
heard; today nicely above threshold level audio; very respectable
signal strength; 0243-0300 pop music; 0300 with time pips (4),
news with sound bite and ending with clear SA/ID; 0305 till tuned out
at 0350, with non-stop music, all of which sounded to me like soca/
calypso genre of Caribbean music; very entertaining.

ETHIOPIA. R. Ethiopia (presumed), continuing to drift around on
Dec 29. At 1443, seemed about 7236.25v, with HOA music, while at
1540, seemed about 7236.63v; much better reception today than on
on Dec 27.

INDONESIA. 4869.9, Pro 1 RRI Wamena, 1256, Thursday, Dec 29.
Tentatively with the Kang Guru Indonesia ("KGI") program, but with
very poor reception due to strong OTH radar.

MADAGASCAR[non-log]. 5007v, R. Madagasikara, at 1539 &
1550, Dec 29, not hear anywhere around 5010, only AIR on 5010.0.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1543, Thursday, Dec 29.
NHK's "Friends Around the World" with interview of Dr. Tomohiko
Sugishita about African medicine; repeat of a Sept program; very
readable; will be repeated again tomorrow (Friday); played AIDS
prevention song "Ndimakukonda" ("I Love You").

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, SIBC, 0402-0501*, Dec 29. Another
day with better than normal reception; DJ in Pijin playing pop and
C&W songs; commercial announcements in English (car rental,
general hardware supplies, etc.); several spots about "School is out";
0500 ABC news (death of Debbie Reynolds, etc.) till suddenly off.
Normally not heard so well, especially not this early! Winter propagation?

Re: Africa - Pacific DX log (8) Ron Howard - Dec 30, 2016 18:22 UTC No.2014
AUSTRALIA. 9580, RA, 1451-1524, Dec 30. Pop music show,
ABC's "Triple J Unearthed"; strong signal, but unable to hear
12065 nor 12085; program SA/IDs between every song; "Triple J
Unearthed. We love Australian music," "Triple J Unearthed,
the best sounds from your own backyard," "The best new
music from your own backyard, Triple J Unearthed," etc.
Break at 1500 for ABC news.

Triple J Unearthed was established in 1995, and clearly aiming for
the younger audience. Website - https://www.triplejunearthed.com/
which has audio streaming.

ZAMBIA. Dec 30, heard 5915 (R. One/ZNBC), 1607-1616, via long path;
in vernacular; under a strong Myanmar Radio also on 5915;
clearly Zambia, as they constantly were playing short snippets of
the Xmas song in English - "Happy Christmas, Happy New Year."
Have been hearing Zambia here most of this month at this time,
but today the first for positive confirmation of identification. So
from now till New Year's Eve, they will undoubtedly be playing
a lot of this song!

BTW - Seems Myanmar has a much later sign off time here, but
when is it? 1557* has CRI signing off here, leaving Myanmar to
dominate Zambia. My local sunrise was at 1520 UT.

"Regime intensifies signal jamming against foreign radio broadcasts"

North Korea has been from the beginning of March continually signal
jamming radio broadcasts on the shortwave frequency used by the South
Korean non-profit broadcaster Unification Media Group (UMG). Given
the present situation, in which North Korean residents might be
influenced by outside information condemning the regime and explaining
the purpose of the sanctions imposed by the United Nations, the
regime has showed the will to block sources of outside information
that might cause unrest.

The shortwave frequency band in question, 7515Khz, has been actively
jammed starting on March 1st making it extremely difficult for North
Korean listeners to tune in. On the 15, UMG organization began using
three receivers to test out reception at that and adjacent frequencies
on a daily basis and was able to confirm that the exact signal is
being jammed.

Re: A16 - 2016 Ron Howard - Mar 22, 2016 14:31 UTC No.1165
Have been interested to recently find that CRI is no longer
signing off at 1257* on 7325 kHz., as they normally had
done for a long time, but instead am finding a new sign
off time of 1253*.

Is this a permanent change?

This gives us a slightly longer window of opportunity to
check for Wantok Radio Light (7324.95) (PNG), which
was not heard at all on March 22.

VANUATU. 7260, R. Vanuatu on April 22, just at 1205*
heard PBS Xinjian go off the air here, leaving the frequency

ended at 1217, but they keep the transmitter on for a long

suddenly off the air at 1317 on April 24. Remarkable
reception! First: BBS was much stronger than PBS
Yunnan (China) also on frequency and second: BBS
ran about one hour past their usual cut off time (rare!).

1157-1202: EZL pop music.

1202-1221: Announcer in vernacular with the normal
breaks for brief indigenous instrumental music.

1221-1224: Indigenous music and singing.

1224-1256: Chatting on the phone in vernacular; mostly OM
(in the studio) talking with young girl; long conversation; very
nice segment, as the audio via phone was much stronger
than the studio audio. My audio at https://goo.gl/L6eSTx .

1240-1245: Musical break.

1256: BBS indigenous music mixing with PBS's music.

1300-1314: Announcer in vernacular.

1314: Indigenous instrumental music. 1317: Went off the air.

Thanks very much to Jim Young for the exact frequency, as

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, SIBC - Voice of the Nation.
Tuned in at 0507 to find them on the air past their normal
cut off time of 0500; started out very poorly and slowly
improved by the time they suddenly went off the air at
0759. Some of the highlights:

0533-0658: DJ in Pijin playing mostly pop USA hit songs
(Commodores with "Nightshift," etc.).

0658: Full ID with frequencies ("SIBC, Radio Happy Isles,
Voice of the Nation"); calliope music; into the news and
weather in English till 0715. Honiara sunset at 0712 UT.

0715-0730: Weekly program in English.

0730-0745: Pop USA hit songs (Starship with "Nothing's
Gonna Stop Us Now," etc.); 0733 SIBC schedule for today.

0745: Health program in Pijin with info about health
issues for new babies; intro and closing song in English
("Eat healthy, stay healthy"); followed by Solomon Airlines
flight schedule ("Are you flying Solomon Airlines today? . . .
International flights: Flight 701, 10 o'clock tomorrow morning
from Brisbane to Honiara . . . Domestic flights . . .") and
suddenly off at 0759.

Always nice to catch SIBC running well past their normal

KOREA NORTH[non]. new 5965, Shiokaze at 1303 
on April 27; first day on alternate frequency; in Korean;
ex: 5935; good reception with no jamming yet.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, suddenly
on at 1156 with singing jingle ending with "VOH" on April 27;
fair, but within an hour up to good reception. Since they first
went of the air here (Dec 21, 2015), have never heard any
jamming; whereas // 3985 // 6003 and // 6348 always seem
to have white noise jamming. This is still easy to ID with the
often heard "V O H" in English.

MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, on April 27 was checking
at 1102 for the Wednesday edition of R. Australia's "English for
Business" language lesson, but it was preempted by live sports
coverage (soccer?) in vernacular; good number of mentions of
"Myanmar"; coverage ended at 1122; filler music till the normal
singing jingle ID and suddenly cut off at 1130.

SARAWAK[non]. 15420, Radio Free Sarawak, per Aoki via
Palauig-Zambales (Philippines), 1231-1249, April 27. Normally
this band has a black out during their broadcast, but today was
a rare exception; usual chatting on the phone in vernacular, but
what was not usual was a conversation by announcer in the
studio in vernacular with candidate Simon Tiong on the phone,
who responded in English; talking about "All the people of
Sarawak" and about the duties of the Chief Minister to serve
all the the people.

Back in 2014, RFS often had to change frequencies to try to
evade the heavy jamming, which proved to be so persistent
that RFS took a long break (about a year?) from broadcasting
on SW. Since they returned in 2015, I have not once heard
them jammed or seen reports of any jamming. Why did the
jamming not start up again during the past year? A major
policy change by Malaysia? Anyone have any thoughts
about this? Thanks for any comments.

Hi Glenn,

Sent an inquiry directly to Timm Breyel, who resides in
Malaysia, asking if he had any insights regarding the RFS
and non-jamming issue. As always, Timm has a very
informative response:

"1) As you probably know Sabah and Sarawak are
autonomous states in East Malaysia. In the last
Malaysian General Election these two states helped
the ruling party retain power. The states are also rich
in natural resources, i.e. oil, natural gas, timber, and
mineral deposits. They need these states for political
and financial clout.

2) My guess is the ruling Malaysian government does
not wish to provoke and draw attention to RFS and the
opposition parties there. The ruling government needs
assistance from the people to keep pirates and Islamic
extremists at bay around the Sulu and South China seas,
near Sabah. In this way, the government can show their
is 'Freedom of Speech' (at least for now) and defend their
eastern borders.

3) Having said this, the Malaysian government last year
issued an arrest warrant for Clare Rewcastle Brown, the
founder of RFS. Interestingly the warrant had nothing to
do directly with RFS and their activities, but rather had
more to do with a report she published about the 1Malaysia
Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal. The Wall Street
Journal filled a similar report, and again the PM and ruling
government attempted to squelch it. Nothing came of either
charge: Interpol dropped Malaysia's request and the lawsuit
against WSJ will be tied up in the US courts for years. If
anything, the PM and Malaysia's financial image is
tarnished. So, the Malaysian government needs to put
up a good show to her eastern states.

4) You may have noticed RTM only relays Wai FM [11665],
Sarawak FM [9835] and possibly Asyik FM [6050] (all
indigenous-related) broadcasts on short-wave. Gone is
Klasik Nasional, TRAXX FM and a few others. Again, it
looks like the ruling government is demonstrating their
interest and commitment to the people in Sarawak and
Sabah.

In other news, I read the new NBC Bougainville station
was constructed partially to shore up the politics there,
especially after the separatist movement tried to take
control of the island.

Papua Barat, on Borneo, is another place to watch. Like
Sarawak and Sabah, there is talk of succession too. These
places are so far removed from their respective central
governments and the dominant cultures, they are flexing
their muscle. In Sabah alone, the government policies are
very flexible and arbitrary compared to the states in West
Malaysia (where I live)."

Greatly appreciate Timm taking the time to give me such
a detailed analysis of the situation. Very nice to be able to
get a local perspective.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS on May 2, tuned in at 1217 to hear 
the usual format: BBS indigenous music mixing with PBS
Yunnan (China); 1219 one of the stations went off the air;
as I have recently been reporting, this would fit the BBS
pattern, then leaving the frequency clear for PBS. Not
so today! It was PBS that went off the air; I continued to
listen and noted I was still hearing the BBS indigenous
music and was clearly not with PBS Vietnamese, but was
in vernacular; after 1230 had a long interview; 1300 an
often heard BBS theme music; announcer in vernacular
till suddenly off at 1307. Truly a unique reception for both
BBS and PBS. Rare to hear BBS without the normal PBS
QRM.

May 1, noted at 1212 & 1306 that PBS Yunnan was off the
air on 6035 (also no BBS), so seems PBS is having technical
difficulties now, so a good time to monitor Bhutan.

CHINA. 6155, CNR2/China Business Radio, 1214-1255,
May 1. The popular variety show (comedy, music, etc.) that
is fairly often heard here - "Haiyang Live Show"; in Chinese;
many program IDs with one in English; good reception.

BBS (Bhutan) and PBS Yunnan (China)

Believe I now have a better understanding of what has
been happening recently with BBS and PBS Yunnan
on 6035. Noted the following on May 5:

1121: PBS in Chinese with music show; no BBS yet.

1152: Finally hearing BBS with old Bob Dylan song
(sounded like "Just Like a Woman"?), underneath
stronger PBS with announcer in Chinese.

1200: PBS changed to Vietnamese and gave multi-
language ID ("SW liu[6] ling[0] san[3] wu[5]. Yunnan
Radio and Television International, the Voice Shangri-la");
went off the air 1201, leaving BBS in the clear. So
what has been happening recently is that PBS is no
longer going off the air at 1500 as they normally did,
but now end broadcasting sometime around 1200.
A major change and of course greatly helps with
reception of BBS after they are off.

1201: BBS with usual format with announcer and brief
spots with indigenous music.

1220-1225: Repetitive indigenous singing.

1228: BBS off the air.

Part of my 2013 eQSL(translated from Chinese):

"First of all, thank you for listening to our station's broadcast on
safety information at sea. We confirm you heard our station's
weather forecast at sea ...

Guangzhou Coast Station was established to participate in the
International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and
to fulfill the responsibilities and obligations under the International
Maritime Organization (IMO). It provides safety information to ships
at sea on distress alert, safety, rescue communication, ship-to-shore
public communication, weather forecast on China marine waters,
and navigational warnings.

Every year we receive reception reports from radio listeners around
the world. What makes us especially pleased is our signals are heard
as far as in the United States. We really appreciate you providing us
with this information. It is encouraging. We hope you will continue to
follow our broadcasts with interest. We will try to provide the best
services to ships at sea.

Guangzhou Coast Station is located in Guangzhou city, which is in
Guangdong Province of China. Guangzhou is a beautiful city. We
hope you will be able to visit Guangzhou some day.

Wish you great success and good health.

Here is the latest email (May 20) from Sylvia at PMA-The Cross Radio.

"Sorry Ron. We have not put the station back on the SW radio as it
doubles the price for power and we do not have an engineer in charge
of the station. We are one missionary pastor and wife on Pohnpei and
are grateful to be broadcasting to Pohnpei Island on 88.5 FM.

NBC Bougainville new, longer schedule.

May 30, on 3325, noted NBC from tune in at 1130 to tune out at
1315. Much better reception today than yesterday; mostly DJs in
Tok Pisin/Pidgin playing EZL pop songs & Pacific Island pop songs;
"What a Feeling" by Irene Cara and John Mellencamp with "It Hurts
so Good"; 1200-1205 "NBC Bougainville" ID and into the NBC news
in English; after 1225 varying levels of QRM from Pro 1 RRI
Palangkaraya (BTW - 3905, Pro 1 RRI Merauke remains silent). My
local sunrise was at 1251 UT.

KOREA NORTH[non]. new 5935, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze/
JSR via Yamata (Japan), 1301, May 31. Ex: 5965; the first
day on their alternate frequency; in Japanese; schedule
1300-1400; too early for N. Korea jamming to have noted
the change today; Shiokaze is now blocking Tibet (Xizang
PBS via Lhasa), which can be heard underneath.

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM via Kajang, 1316, May 31.
In vernacular; caught a long promo for upcoming "Wonderful
Indonesia Festival"; fair.

A check of the Web found - http://goo.gl/IaoIwB :

"KUCHING: The Indonesian Ministry of Tourism will be holding
the Wonderful Indonesia Festival from June 3 to 4, in an effort
to achieve its target of 12 million tourists・arrival globally,
including those from Malaysia and specifically Sarawak.

Indonesian Consul General for Sarawak Jahar Gultom said the
two-day festival would be organised in conjunction with 善ekan
Gawai Naik Dango・from June 1 to 4, which would introduce
Indonesian culture in the hope that its potential would be
recognised at the international level.

The event, to be held in Sambas, West Kalimantan, is part of the
Indonesian government痴 efforts through its Ministry of Tourism to
present the rich cultural arts of the country to attract more tourists
to Indonesia.

鉄ambas has the potential become the 組ateway・to attract Sarawakian
tourists as well as those from other states in Malaysia to come and
enjoy the various activities that are held there.

典his is also part of our government痴 efforts to balance the number
of tourists・arrivals to our country where in 2015, the number of
Sarawakian tourists was only 22,000 compared to Indonesian
tourists・arrivals to Sarawak, which was around 400,000.

展ith this festival, we hope that the number of tourists・arrivals from
these two countries could be balanced out,・he said, adding that
around 300 Malaysians are expected to visit the festival.

Speaking at a press conference held at a hotel here yesterday, Jahar
said visitors visiting Sambas for the Wonderful Indonesia Festival 2016
would have the opportunity to witness arts and cultural performances
by local Indonesian artistes, traditional Dayak arts, food and a bazaar
as well as blowpipe and top-spinning (gasing) competitions.

Meanwhile, Indonesian Tourism Ministry deputy marketing assistant Edi
Susilo said to ease the arrival of Sarawakians to Sambas, the Indonesian
government would give permits for Sarawakians to drive their own
vehicles to the festival ・on condition that they would obtain their
permits at the Indonesian border.

鄭t the border, Sarawakians can enter Indonesia in their own vehicles by
obtaining a car sticker. But they are only allowed to be in Sambas starting
from June 2 to June 5 (before 5pm). . . . "

BOUGAINVILLE. 6020, NBC Bougainville, 0634-0642*, June 3.
Pop American hit song and Pacific Island pop song; suddenly off;
poor.

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire, 0736-0812*, June 3. Started
with JBA music; after 0800 announcer till suddenly off, by which
time the signal had improved a lot; sign off time conforms to
Atsunori Ishida's info.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA[non-log]. 7324.95, Wantok Radio Light has
not been heard for a while now. Latest check on June 3 at 0905, with
clear frequency.

RUSSIA. 7295 // 7345, Radio Sakha. June 3 with open carrier at
tune in of 0855; audio at 0900, but no IS nor time pips; straight into
Russian programming; 7345, as usual the best reception when
compared to 7295.

Have to wonder about item in DXLD 16-21, reporting "presumed" R.
Sakha reception "0803+," as I have only observed a *0900 sign on.
All the schedules I have seen also indicate *0900, whether weekday
or weekend, with 0500* to *0900 being silent.

ZAMBIA. 9680, Voice of Hope Africa, 0504, June 3. In English; time
given as "7 0 4," which is their local Central Africa Time; "Breakfast Table"
program with preaching and songs; after 0530 same segment repeated
twice; good number of IDs; almost fair with QRN (static).

CHINA. 6035.0, PBS Yunnan (presumed), tuned in at 1235
till they went off the air close to 1308, June 4. It will be recalled
that recently they changed their sign off time from 1500+ to 1200*.
I have been monitoring their going off the air about 1200 (either
just after or just before their ID in both English and Chinese); at
that time they have been turning off the transmitter (often leaving
BBS/Bhutan to be heard in the clear).

Today PBS had a very different format; strong open carrier for a
minute before start of classical western orchestra music; non-stop
classical instrumental music, except for occasional one minute
breaks of dead air between selections; no announcements of
any kind; much stronger signal than usual from PBS. No
BBS/Bhutan noted today.

It will also be recalled that in the past when PBS Yunnan ended
their regular programming at 1500, they normally played classical
western orchestra music till closing down about 1505 or so. Today
then would seem to be an extension of their former format.

This extended sign off, if it continues, will be bad news for BBS/Bhutan,
which is also on 6035. In the past I often heard them after PBS 1200*.
Certainly this needs more monitoring!

INDIA. 5050, AIR Aizawl (presumed). It will be recalled that this briefly
reactivated back in April, but not heard again till today (June 4). At 1143
could tell there where two stations here, the other being the stronger
Beibu Bay Radio (China); AIR very faint underneath BBR; 1220 seemed
to go into their usual segment in English. Very nice to have them back.
Hope they stay on the air longer than their last reactivation.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, *1154, June 4. Suddenly
on in Korean; news; 1215 the usual clear "V O H" ID. Heard no jamming
nor OTH radar; nice clean signal.

Occasionally I still see reports of this being jammed, but I think not. Probably
what is being heard is the occasional OTH radar causing QRM. The vast
majority of days VOH is totally clear here of any QRM, unlike the almost
always jammed frequencies of // 3985 // 6003 and // 6348.

30th April, but may have been active beyond that."

"I checked for Wantok on June 1 and 3 around 1030 but heard
nothing under CRI (I can usually hear something from them even
though China is there and very strong). I was unsure if it was a
propagation issue or they were off air."

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1219-1255, June 5.
The third consecutive Sunday with a full edition of "Island Praise"
syndicated (Florida, USA) show of pop Caribbean gospel music
(reggae, soca, calypso, hip hop gospel, etc.); poor; very light
QRM from RRI Palangkaraya. My local sunrise at 1249 UT.

June 6, at 0930 clear "NBC Bougainville" ID; at 1101 station
promo/ID in English with 3 or 4 mentions of "NBC Bougainville"
and same promo/ID again at 1121; suddenly off 1202*, which
was very different from yesterdays Stacy Rose's "Island Praise"
Sunday show that I noted from 1219 to past 1255. June 6 with
very decent Bougainville reception!

INDONESIA. 3905, Pro 1 RRI Merauke, June 5 heard reciting
from the Qur'an at 1254, but June 6 not heard during checks at
1023 + 1133. Has been on and off the air erratically recently.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang on June 6 was
not heard at 0901 nor 1001, but was noted on the air by 1106;
by 1212 was off the air; so Madang had a very abbreviated
broadcast today.

3365, NBC Milne Bay on June 6 first noted at 0901, with // NBC
Bougainville, with the NBC news in English; still going after NBC
Madang (3260) went off the air. Dave Valko was also listening

BBS/Bhutan & PBS Yunnan/China

Since my anomaly reception of PBS Yunnan (6035) on June 4, they
have not had another day with extended sign off of non-stop
western classical music, so was only a one day event.

June 7, on 6035, at 1204 noted usual format for BBS/Bhutan;
announcer with brief indigenous instrumental music breaks at
1217, 1222 & 1224; at 1226 started indigenous singing; still on
the air at 1234. As Mauno Ritola today reported in Facebook
(WRTH - World Radio Tv Handbook), PBS went off the air at
1200, so BBS/Bhutan had sole possession of the frequency
after that.

June 26 with BBS running much later than normal. PBS Yunnan

music; 1315 back to chatting on the phone, but this segment with
adult caller and who sang over the phone (no music), so must have
been giving amateurs a chance to air their talent; suddenly off at

some nice grayline reception.

MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, 1127-1130*, June 26. In vernacular;

R. Sakha with major change.

RUSSIA. 7295, Radio Sakha on June 28 noted with clearly a major
change in transmitter assignments. Ever since I first heard R. Sakha
on May 7, the 7345 signal had been many times stronger than // 7295;
that had been the case until today; certainly now 7295 is the stronger
transmitter (250kW?) and // 7345 is the much weaker one (100kW?),
with 7345 mostly blocked by CNR1 after 1101.

1117-1300*: seemed in Russian; played some pop songs, but also
very nice segment (1215-1300) of traditional Russian music and
songs; 1200 & 1300 brief IS of Jew's harp and time pips. New sign
off time for weekdays?

My audio of a portion of today's programming at https://goo.gl/JUvBrH .

Would like to think my email to R. Sakha on May 16, which alerted
them to the reactivation of CNR1 (China) on 7345, had something to
do with their decision now to switch transmitter assignments.

Update - Radio Sakha

June 29 heard R. Sakha with extremely weak signal on 7345 at
0938, along with V26 (Chinese numbers station) on 7345-USB.

7295, just like yesterday, abnormally strong signal from R. Sakha,
with QRN (static); one of their favor times to give a station ID is at
about 50 minutes after the hour; today at 0949 with montage of
different pop songs and clear "Radio Sakha" ID; some ads. Audio
of ID and ads at https://goo.gl/CbcTGK . 1000 no IS or time pips;
went straight into the news(?).

Rechecked 7295 at 1056, only to find them off the air; no signal at
all and none during subsequent checking till 1112. Whereas 7345
seemed to still be on the air, but only open carrier heard till hit with
CNR1 sign on just before 1101.

RUSSIA. 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, on July 6 with special
live coverage from the opening ceremony of the 6th Children
of Asia International Sports Games now being held in Yakutsk;
all coverage translated into English 1248-1310; at 1310 went to
local announcers in just one language, with commentary, while the
opening ceremony continued on in the background; several speeches
by Russian officials welcoming boys and girls to the games and
declaring the games officially open; described the carrying in of the
various flags from Mongolia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, etc.; still
going at tune out of 1317, which was well past their normal weekday
1300*, so special extended coverage of the games.

The games are being held till July 17, with the closing ceremony being
on July 16. Hope we can hear more coverage of the games, as they are
being held locally in Yakutsk. Very interesting coverage, as it was live
and in English.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, on July 7 with special 
extended broadcast to celebrate their 38 anniversary of
idependence; 1203 (after a long National Anthem), continued
on with non-stop Pacific Islands music and songs, except for
occasional announcements sending out congratulations to the
good people of Solomon Islands and to the government; never
any station IDs, so not sure if just an extension of special SIBC
programming or a special relay of Wantok FM; commercial
announcements from Solomon Islands Airlines and a IT service
who "wish to convey to the government and people of our beloved
nation, Solomon Islands, a happy 38 anniversary of independence
. . . God bless the Solomon Islands"; still being heard at tune out
of 1318. My local sunrise was at 1256 UTC.

BANGLADESH[non-log]. 4750, Bangladesh Betar (Home

that was just CNR1. RRI Makassar (4749.95) continues
silent. Clearly no BB today, as overall conditions were good.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1149-1202*, July 8.
Pop songs; 1200 time check ("11 o'clock") & "NBC Bougainville"

badly with Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, which after 1202 was in the
clear with fair reception, relaying the Jakarta news.

CHINA. 6035.0, PBS Yunnan (presumed). July 8 again had
them running long past their usual 1200 sign off. As occasionally
noted recently, today playing non-stop classical western orchestra
music, with about one minute of dead air between selections; tuned
in at 1212 and still being heard at my last check at 1251. Unable to

July 10. Same BBS format; 1201-1216*; announcer in vernacular;

to find two consecutive days with the same cut off time.

this quiz only has three questions to answer to possibly win a free

than the norm here. In the past VOI carried "Exotic Indonesia" on
Friday, but clearly was not on today and has been a long time now
since I last heard that program. My audio https://goo.gl/JX4WvM .

July 9 & 10, VOI was off the air during my usual monitoring times.

RUSSIA. 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, on July 10 special
coverage from the Children of Asia Sports Games preempted
regular programming; 0949-1040 with coverage of the games
by local announcer with strong background sounds of the crowd
and also loudspeaker announcements; 1040-1110 had no sports
coverage, but talked about the games and interviews with some
kids; no breaks at ToH for the normal IS and time pips, but had
non-stop coverage; almost fair with summertime QRN (static).
Muffled background loudspeaker announcements possibly bilingual?
This Sunday noted 1200*, after usual IS and time pips; yesterday
noted they were off the air by 1220, when I checked.

So the normal weekend schedule is 1200*, with weekdays 1300*.

A reminder about Radio Sakha (Yakutsk, Russia):

- - - - - posted to DXLD yg:

Hi Glenn,

A reminder that on July 16 (Saturday), at 1100 UT, there probably
will be live coverage of the closing ceremony of the Children of
Asia International Sports Games. Seeing as the opening ceremony
was presented with a complete translation of the event in English,
I assume the same will hold true for the closing ceremony. Look
for the coverage to go well beyond their normal weekend 1200*
sign off time.

Per the downloadable schedule at the games website,
http://www.yakutsk2016.com/ :

July 16:
Official Closing Ceremony of the 6th CAISG 20:00 [1100 UT - Ron]
Tuymada [aka: Tuymaada - Ron] Stadium.

BTW - This past week both Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) and I
have observed Radio Sakha on the air earlier than their normal
*0900, with Hiroyuki hearing them as early as 0830. Perhaps
just related to the special coverage this past week for the children's
sports games?

Rather a nice video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB5ArmqTEN4 .

At 1:10 looks like the making of a Jew's harp (Radio Sakha's IS is
the sound of a Jew's harp) and at 1:11 a girl is playing one.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS on July 15 with 1226*; off in mid-sentence;
above the norm reception.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville on July 16, with a
quick check, found 1149*; suddenly off; QRN (static).

July 15, with NBC heard 1147-1223*; pop songs (Marvin Gaye
with "Sexual Healing," etc.); promo for "NBC Bougainville";
1201 PNG bird call and "NBC news in brief" (at the airport,
most of Air Niugini flights have been cancelled, etc.); PSA in
Pidgin.

Seeing as there is a lot of political unrest now in PNG regarding
Parliaments attempt to take a vote of no confidence in Prime
Minister O誰eill, NBC had a segment where they asked five
political questions; repeated questions again and then gave
the answers; off suddenly in mid-song; semi-readable in QRN
(static).

RUSSIA. 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1150-1300*, July 16
(Saturday). Extended special broadcast past their normal 1200*;
local announcers commenting on the games; 1205 anthem; start
of the trilingual coverage (English, Russian and local language);
"Ladies and gentlemen, we begin the closing ceremony of the 6th
Children of Asia International Sports Games" (CAISG); parade of
athletes.

CAISG will next be held in Mongolia, in four years. Naturally there
was an official (State Secretary of the Ministry of Health and Sports)
from there who gave a speech; "On behalf of the government of
Mongolia, Mongolian people and Mongolian athletes, let me express
gratitude to the government and people of . . ."; several other speeches
given; acknowledgment of many "appreciation letters" that were received
from government officials; lowering of the CAISG flag; QRM from 7290.
All in all a very enjoyable listening experience.

TAIWAN. 9410, [non-log] Fu Hsing BS. Seems I was premature in
saying their transmitter was fixed when I heard them on July 13. Have

5020, SIBC? or Wantok FM 96.3 relay? Dec 29, 1348-1602; unable to 
determine if it was SIBC programming or Wantok FM relay programming;
certainly was not the normal format for Wantok FM, which in the past
was always non-stop pop songs and some brief canned IDs; today
playing pop songs, but with a live DJ and announcements; too weak
to make out the language; if SIBC programming, I would have expected
breaks at the top of the hour for ID, etc., but there were none.

Whichever it was, they are on another extended schedule.

Re: SOLOMON ISLANDS : Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation (SIBC) Ron Howard - Dec 29, 2015 20:39 UTC No.647
Thanks very much to Christoph Ratzer (Austria) for sending me a 
recording he made today at 1758 UTC on 5020. The announcer in Pijin
that he recorded sound like the same one I was hearing earlier.
Christoph's audio had weather alerts for heavy rains and flooding,
so that is the reason SIBC did not sign off today at 1200, but
continued on and must have been giving weather advisers during
their usual off time of 1200-1900, but was too weak for me to make
them out. So clearly NOT Wantok FM relay today, but the whole
time was SIBC programming. Appreciate Christoph's assistance!

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1435-1514, Dec 31. Very enjoyable
reception with nice signal; in Pijin with special broadcast for New Year's
with two announcers; read out many texted messages; many phone calls;
1500 - "exactly 2 hours into 2016"; many IDs. Of their recent extended
receptions here, today was by far the very best.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1846-1849, Dec 31. I was able to listen
to "Auld Lang Syne". After that, I was able to hear New Year's song,
a New Year message on the phone. (Saitama, Japan, ICF-SW7600GR & AN-12)

 KOREA SOUTH. 5900, Numbers Station V24, 1600,
Sept 15. Pop song in Korean, followed by numbers
given in Korean; fair. Not often I listen at this time
period and has been a while since I last heard V24.

BTW - Noted NA here at 1456, on Sept 15, as Radio
Rossii (via Vladivostok) went off the air just after the
1500 time pips.

MALAYSIA. 9835 (Sarawak FM) // 11665 (Wai FM),
1302-1314, Sept 16. Major address to the nation on
Malaysia Day (national holiday to observe founding
of the Malaysian Federation); Prime Minister Datuk
Seri Najib Tun Razak impassioned speech, delivered
from Sarawak; mostly in vernacular, but some English
("We are greater because we are together. We will
rise to the challenge and we will succeed because
we are together . . . moments of leadership"); loud
sound of the crowd in background; after 1314 not //.

MYANMAR. 5985.0, Myanmar Radio, 1530-1600,
Sept 15 (Thursday); English segment; full ID; news
and "the weather" ("outlook for the next two days");
"end of the news from Myanmar Radio"; 1540-1600
"NHK's Friends Around the World" presented by
Risa Shimizu and Fumiko Konoye; reading haiku
poems; emails from listeners; poor, but in a few
months this reception should be fairly good.
Program to be repeated again tomorrow (Friday),
as announced in the program intro.

RUSSIA. 5900, Radio Rossii via Vladivostok, 1210-1300,
Sept 16. Rather surprised to not hear local "Radio Rossii
Primorye" programming today, as recently they were here
during this time period, but not today; was all "Radio Rossii"
IDs with national network program of wonderful traditional
Russian songs and ballads; 1258 interesting ID/promo(?)
for Radio Rossii along with sound of crows; fair to almost
good.

An anomaly or change in schedule?

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC on Sunday, Sept 18,
they must be headed for a 24 hour broadcast. First noted
1240 and still going at 1415. Today was the SIBC format
(never any IDs, but 1303 & 1336 PSAs in English - certainly
not a Wantok FM relay); non-stop religious songs, which
mostly seemed to be in English. Had times when I was
only hearing an open carrier; seemed they were having a
problem keeping a steady audio going.

This is the longest broadcast I have heard with their
extended programming here running past their former
1200*. Jim Young (Calif.) was still hearing them at 1432.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1119-1200*,
Sept 19. DJ in Pidgin playing pop songs ("When Will I Be
Loved," etc.) and many time checks ("19 past 10"); full ID
with frequencies at 1132, into the often heard program
about schools and education, in Pidgin; 1137 "NBC
Bougainville" promo; suddenly off before the news. On
Sept 18 not heard at all.

KOREA NORTH. 3277.0 (AM), V28 ("The Parrot"),
1232-1239*, Sept 19. Korean numbers station; poor.

RUSSIA. 5900, Radio Rossii via Vladivostok, 1210 and
subsequent checking through 1300; poor audio/strong
audio hum/weak modulation; clearly a problem with their
transmitter, as also noted today by Hiroyuki Komatsubara;
National Network programs of "Radio Rossii"; many IDs
before 1300. So another day without local "Radio Rossii
Primorye" programming.

Thanks to the Facebook page (WRTH) posting of Vasily
Gulyaev: (Google translation of the last paragraph)

"As of 4:00 am (MSK) 17th September 2016 the
work of all the objects RTRS network restored in

scheduled to continue for another week."

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1203-1207*, Sept 19.
Ending the NA; open carrier; 1204 start of pop songs; good
audio; off in mid-song.

TAJIKISTAN. 4790, BBC Uzbek, 1310-1329*, Sept 19.
An anomaly today; surprised to find no CNR1 programming
jamming here today (very rare!); poor/CODAR QRM.

BHUTAN. 6035.0, BBS, 1139, Sept 21. Segment in
English; DJ playing pop hit songs; a very rare day indeed
that I'm able to actually SA/ID any song, but today the signal
was good enough to enjoy the distinctive song "Stairway
To Heaven" by Led Zeppelin; went off the air shortly after
1200; fortunately PBS Yunnan during this whole time period
was just with an announcer (no music).

selections of classical western orchestra music; a lot of dead
air (just open carrier) between musical selections; suddenly
off the air; no announcements at any time; poor-fair; long past
their normal 1200*.

This anomaly of their extended sign off format happens about
once a month and is always a pleasure to listen to. My audio

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1209*, Sept 22. Pop
songs and clearly turned off the transmitter.

UNID on 5020, with open carrier here at 1231. Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan) has also noted this recently and I
agree with his observation, it does not seem to be the
SIBC transmitter, but then who?

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed), 1130, Sept 22.
Very surprised to hear this, especially at this time, as this
month Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) has been hearing
their new schedule of:

"0800-1000 9410kHz(irregular), very extremely occasionally
9774kHz
(1100-1300 nothing)"

Until today, I also noted nothing post-1100. Today also noted
at 1252, but off the air by 1320 check, so seems to actually
be *1100-1300*; their 9774 remains silent.

This is because it was speculated by the strength comparison
of the signal, I think that there is the possibility of when
it was doing a reduced force transmission If Solomon.

In MW, it became the season that many of Alaska stations and
North American MW stations in Japan can be heard. Strong

At 1458 into French. The signal strength was decent, but tough
copying them through the adjacent QRM, but still I was very

program IDs in Chinese; fair-good.

INDONESIA. 9525.9, VOI, 1345, Sept 27. Segment in English
(Channel I program); fair-good; recently a vast improvement in
their signal strength (just better propagation?).

The Sept 25th anomaly of airing all Channel II exclusive English
programming was a one-day-event; back to normal Channel I
programs both Sept 26 and 27. The 25th was an interesting
change of pace, with a very different format than 1300-1400
Channel I programming!

MALAYSIA. 6050, Asyik FM, via Kajang, Sept 27 returned to

with strong signal; randomly 1138-1445; in vernacular; 1302 to
tuned out 1445 with their usual Tuesday "Bollywood" show of
pop songs in Hindi. How long will they stay on this time?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang with anomaly on
Sept 27. Normally they suddenly go off the air about 1200 or so;
today audio ended at 1201, but transmitter stayed on past 1222
with just an open carrier heard. A shame they didn't keep the
audio going!

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed). With my Sept 25th log,
I indicated "Being heard now daily (*1100-1300*)," but Sept 26 and
27 found off the air at that time. They did it to just prove me wrong?

VANUATU. 7260 (slightly on the low side), R. Vanuatu, 1311-1340,
Sept 27. Recently having almost decent reception; today slightly
better than China on frequency; after 1412 (Japan gone by then)
could confirm was // 3944.2. Glad to see they have maintained their
extended schedule.

UNIDENTIFIED. 5020, open carrier on Sept 27, noted 1406 & 1423.
Seemed too weak to be SIBC. Believe if SIBC were on the air they
would have audio. Normally SIBC, when they run past 1200, usually
will just suddenly turn off their transmitter; they do not keep
going with an open carrier. Still a mystery.

The broadcast was followed by a non-modulated every day, 
but seems to have repaired.

*0953- Opening music, program start

The test transmission was going in 6185kHz around 07:30 today.
It has come up with a sound properly in today's broadcasting !
But it might still modulation is weak ...


-1135-
6185kHz very weak modulation again .......
