NK : Regime intensifies signal jamming against foreign radio broadcasts XYZ - Mar 22, 2016 16:29 UTC No.1169

---------------------------------------------------------------------
"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.

nice segment, as the audio via phone was much stronger
than the studio audio. My audio at https://goo.gl/L6eSTx .

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

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.

7345-USB, Chinese number station, 0954-1005*, May 2. Poor.

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

"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.

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). . . . "

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.

FYI - Recent AIR Aizawl QSL card - https://goo.gl/I7ogY6 

QSL card via New Delhi in one month confirming
reception of AIR Aizawl; full data and with site as
"Aizawl." This in response to an emailed reception
report to spectrum-manager@air.org.in . Nice to
find they still QSL via Delhi. This is certainly one of
my better AIR QSLs, as this station is not often
reported in N. America.

Especially nice to be hearing the station again today!! Ron

least one week now.

"Definitely off (checked again 0725 today), Last logged here
30th April, but may have been active beyond that."

- - - - - Rob Wagner (June 3):

"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."

"I don't check them very regularly but Wantok last noted in my logbook
on 14 May at 0815 UTC."

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
to them today over on the east coast (USA).

PHILIPPINES. 7410, FEBC, 1151-1205, June 5. IS mixing with

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.

BHUTAN. 6035.0, BBS on June 24 noted PBS Yunnan again 
with non-stop classical western instrumental music 1207 till ending
audio at 1209, but seemed to leave transmitter on with open carrier;
BBS noted with usual format till off at 1217*, when I was still hearing
the PBS open carrier.

June 26 with BBS running much later than normal. PBS Yunnan
closed down about 1200, leaving BBS in the clear; 1227-1230
chanting/singing with indigenous music; 1230-1257 the normal
Sunday program with YL chatting on the phone with mostly young
girls; 1257-1300 indigenous music; 1300-1310 seemed to be news
in vernacular; 1310, 1313, 1315 usual brief indigenous instrumental
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
1328*. My local sunrise at 1251 and Thimphu sunset at 1300, so
some nice grayline reception.

MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, 1127-1130*, June 26. In vernacular;
start of their singing ID jingle, which was cut off early.

Recently have noted it takes a minute or less to switch frequencies from
9730 to 5985.

5985, Myanmar Radio, *1130, June 26.

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.

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,

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.

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.

AUSTRALIA. 4835, ABC Alice Springs NT, 1222-1316, July 5.
Talking about the late aboriginal singer Ruby Hunter; ID for "783
ABC Alice Springs, the talk of your town"; news & weather; Tony
Delroy's "Nightlife" show; promo for the upcoming July 31 "ABC
Alice Springs half marathon"; very readable; // 2325, ABC Tennant
Creek NT (poor) // 2485, ABC Katherine NT (fair). Today with
above average reception; rather good for summertime reception!

BANGLADESH[non-log]. 4750, Bangladesh Betar (Home
Service). On July 8, at 1236, had only one station here and
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"
ID; into NBC news in English; suddenly off; most of the time mixing
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
confirm BBS/Bhutan reception today due to extended presents of
PBS Yunnan.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1204-1208*, July 8.
NBC news in English till 1206; promo for NBC; suddenly off; poor.

announcer in vernacular; briefly played indigenous instrumental
music at 1210 and 1214; suddenly off. PBS Yunnan was already
off the air.

July 10. Same BBS format; 1201-1216*; announcer in vernacular;
briefly played indigenous instrumental music at 1201, 1213 and
1215; suddenly off; PBS Yunnan was already off the air. Interesting
to find two consecutive days with the same cut off time.

INDONESIA. 9525.89, VOI, 1301-1326, July 8. In English with
news, "Focus," "News in Brief," "Indonesia Wonders" (no segment
of "Today in History"); promo for "VOI's International Quiz 2016";
this quiz only has three questions to answer to possibly win a free
trip to Indonesia; poor, but semi-readable, which is certainly better
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*.

with a perfect match up: my local sunrise 1259 UT and Thimphu

the last two days BBS had 1216*, so today they broke the pattern.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1140, July 11. Pop
Pacific Islands music; DJ in Pidgin; 1153 start of Michael Jackson's

almost fair; no trace of RRI Palangkaraya at this time, but heard
later.

SOLOMON ISLANDS[non-log]. SIBC - Voice of the Nation was off

from 1232 to 1258 heard their language lesson, but too weak to
make out much, just a word here and there; played some pop
songs; sounded like Greg as usual with his Australian accent,

could make out their email address at the end of the program;
1258-1308 EZL music.

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?

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

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

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.

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!

 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?

Not necessarily being broadcast on a daily basis, is the broadcasting

(1210-1300UTC). Scheduled broadcast of the election program is up to
Sep 16. After that there is no plan.

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.

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

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

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.

>5020kHz
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.

>MWDX
In MW, it became the season that many of Alaska stations and
North American MW stations in Japan can be heard. Strong
signal is also even (1602kHz-1700kHz) in the EX band is coming.
Medium wave of the state seems to have gone up.

from Vientiane capital, the Lao People's Democratic Republic.
Our news in English program broadcasts at 2130 to 2200 hours

production of crops and the national agricultural department helping

At 1458 into French. The signal strength was decent, but tough
copying them through the adjacent QRM, but still I was very
pleased to be able to hear LNR even with this poor reception.

The best reception I had was of the indigenous music/singing, so

CHINA. 6155, CNR2/China Business Radio, 1241-1258, 
Sept 27, with the often heard, popular variety show (mostly
comedy, but also pop songs) "Haiyang Live"; in Chinese; many
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
the airwaves after being silent Sept 9 through 26. Heard again
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.

4750 UNIDENTIFIED.

A mystery to me! Checked today (July 22) at 1237 and clearly
only CNR1 on 4750 (no hint of RRI nor BB). Recently, including
today, have been hearing an UNID station mixing with CNR1 from
about 1300 to 1305. Yes, only on the air for about five minutes!
Who would be broadcasting here with such a brief transmission?

Appreciate any comments or observations. Domo arigato! Ron

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville. July 22 was a
major news day for PNG, so some of their normal programs
where preempted due to coverage of Parliament's vote of
no confidence in Prime Minister O誰eill, which he survived.
1120-1157 with speeches from Parliament; 1159 choral anthem;
1203-1208 "NBC News in Brief"; off at 1230*, after which was
only hearing Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya.

BTW - 3260, NBC Madang, July 22, had news // 3325, but found
off the air by 1210.

Thanks to Mauno Ritola, who provides the following observation,

So maybe BB had some troubles yesterday?"

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar (Home Service),
*1252-1310*, July 24. Seems they have an erratic, abbreviated
schedule now; underneath a stronger CNR1, which had a lot
of singing, making BB reception difficult; 1305 tentative ID.
Thanks again to Mauno Ritola for his assistance with IDing
this short broadcast.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville. July 25 with a
very good day for PNG propagation; randomly 0904 till
off about 1205*; 0904 NBC news in English, with several
reports from "Port Moresby"; // 3260 (NBC Madang) till
end of news at 0914; pop hit songs ("The First Cut is the
Deepest" by Sheryl Crow, etc.); 0931-1000 in English,
taking about the government and with some speeches;
1003-1014 PNG bird call and NBC news (not // 3260);
1015 DJ in Pidgin with pop songs ("Free Fallin" by Tom
Petty, etc.); 1204 PNG bird call and news; gone by 1205
Very nice listening to PNG today!

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, 1200, July 24 ended their
regular programming; no ID at ToH, but went to non-stop
selections of classical western orchestra music; often with
one minute dead air between selections; no announcements
of any kind; still with classical music by 1223.

9545, CNR1. See TAIWAN.

KOREA NORTH[and non]. 5935 on July 24, they continue
to be jamming here at 1311, which causes heavy QRM for
Tibet and not for the intended Shiokaze, which was heard in
the clear on 5965, today in Korean with good signal.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang on July 25.
A day of very good PNG propagation; randomly 0904-1219*;
0904-0914 NBC news in English (// 3325 NBC Bougainville);
1003 did not carry the NBC News; 1110 local news in Pidgin;
1119 & 1130 "NBC Madang" IDs; 1120-1130 announcements
in Pidgin; pop Pacific Islands music; 1204-1208 PNG bird
call and news in English (item about "UN envoy," etc.) (news
// 3325); 1208-1219* relay of "NBC National Radio," with DJ
in English playing pop hit songs (Elton John's "Sacrifice," etc.);
caller on the phone asked some political questions (sounded
like a contest?); suddenly off in mid-sentence at 1219; poor,
but at times semi-readable. A uniquely good day for them!

[non-log] 7324.95, Wantok Radio Light. Quick checked at
0903, July 25, to only find a clear frequency; this on a day
with very good PNG propagation; has been off the air for
a while now.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. July 25, started
at 0900 without any IS or time pips; subsequent random
checking till 1025.

Seems clear, at least to me, that they have reversed their
transmitter assignments; now 7345 has the much stronger
signal, while // 7295 is much weaker and mostly unusable.
There are some days now when R. Sakha is slightly stronger
than CNR1 on 7345, after 1100.

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed), heard during
a quick check at 0952, with music; poor. No hint of 9774.
Rechecked 9410 at 1026, but no signal by then. So their
transmitter continues to have serious problems.

9545, non-log of RTI. July 25 tuned in at 1051 expecting to
hear CNR1 jamming RTI, but instead only found a strong
open carrier; 1057 start of CNR1 jamming, but listening till
after 1105 heard no RTI, only CNR1. At 1221 also heard
strong CNR1 jamming here and still with no RTI, but at
1222 CNR1 went to an open carrier. Seemed as if maybe
they were checking the frequency for the presents of RTI,
which was not here today. Has RTI already abandoned
9545, due to jamming? Thanks to Dan Sheedy in DXLD
yg for his report of RTI & CNR1 jamming on July 23.

CHINA[non-log]. 9545, CNR1. See TAIWAN.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. July 26 was
another day of starting at 0900 without any IS or time pips;
subsequent random checking till 1119.

7345 continues to be several times stronger than // 7295,
which for a while around 1042-1050 was off the air, but by
1104, was back broadcasting again and still much weaker
than 7345.

TAIWAN. 9545, non-log of RTI. My observations yesterday
must have been correct; China was listening and found, just
as I also observed, that RTI was not broadcasting on the 25th.
So on July 26, found this frequency complete free of either RTI
or CNR1, with random checking 1000-1121. So it is fine now for
SIBC (Solomon Islands) to again have extended use of this
frequency, which they sometimes do have long after their
normal 0500*.

MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, 1054-1131*, July 27
(Wed.). Recently have been checking here on Monday
(during 1030 to 1100) and Wednesday (during 1100 to
sign off), which in the past were the normal times I could
catch the Radio Australia programs in English ("English
for Business"), but they are no longer here. Instead just
normal programs in vernacular. Have they dropped RA
language lessons or simply changed the schedule?

BTW - 5985, Myanmar Radio, at 1133, July 27, with
coverage of a live sporting event (probably the Asian
Football Confederation match between Brunei and
Myanmar being held at this time); must have been a
TV audio feed, as there was very little coverage by
the announcer, who mostly only commented during
exciting happenings during the game.

RUSSIA. 7295 // 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk.
July 27 with anomaly reception; both frequencies doing
very well at 1050, with usual "Radio Sakha" ID and
chimes leading into series of ads; subsequent checking
continued to find them both with about equal signal
strength; this is a first for me, as normally only one or
the other is much stronger.

Received another email from "TV and Radio NVK Sakha"
<nvk-news @ mail.ru>) asking me
more about my shortwave receptions of their station and
indicating they want to interview me. Perhaps they think
I speak Russian, as I have corresponded with them in
that language. Am rather flattered that they would make
this offer to me!

promos in English just before the NBC news.

INDIA. 5050, AIR Aizawl, 1220, Aug 1. Am hearing this
just about daily now; into usual news in English; mixing
with and underneath a stronger Beibu Bay Radio (CHINA).

INDONESIA. 3344.84, RRI Ternate (presumed). Have
often been checking here for possible reactivation, but
until today had heard nothing. Aug 1, found positive open
carrier at 0949; random subsequent monitoring still had
clear open carrier till final check at 1234; never any trace
of any audio. Atsunori Ishida concurred RRI Ternate
active today! First time I have had a definite carrier here
this year. Now if we can just get some audio out of them!

Believe was Ternate, as NBC Northern, the Voice of Oro

MYANMAR. 5985 & 9730, Myanmar Radio. RE: My
June 26 posting: "Recently have noted it takes a minute
or less to switch frequencies from 9730 to 5985." Now I
find this is clearly wrong! Have recently been hearing
5985 already on the air minutes BEFORE 9730 goes off
the air, so impossible for both frequencies to use the
same transmitter.

9730, Myanmar Radio, 1005, July 31. Mixing badly with
Sound of Hope (TAIWAN); in vernacular and playing some
EZL music; 1019 cut off and came back between 1041-1046;
1126 started commentary from the women's Asian Football
Confederation match between Australia and Myanmar,
scheduled to start 1130, in Mandalay; suddenly off 1131*.

5985, Myanmar Radio, 1128, July 31. Already on the air while
9730 was about to close down; into live coverage of women's
Asian Football Confederation match between Australia and

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0944, July 31.
Mixing with V26 (CHINA) in USB, with Chinese numbers
(audio of the two stations - https://goo.gl/yqKl02 ) (audio of
just R. Sakha in LSB, with IS [Jew's harp] and time pips -

looks more promising now that we are hearing some audio.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang on Aug 3.
Almost non-stop reception 0924-1208*, plus they went off
the air 1042*, but found on again at 1132 check; mostly in
Tok Pisin/Pidgin; 0932 local news in English (items about
"high school," "police arrived on the scene," "hospital," etc.),
ending at 1000 with phone number and email address and
"same time tomorrow"; as usual Madang did not carry the

In Bangla; 1252 the usual daily brief spot in English with the weather,

continue with their very much abbreviated schedule; slightly stronger
than CNR1 on frequency.

Quick check today at 1235, for the Monday (weekly) SAARC news

1204-1205, mixing with CNR1. Maybe attempting for a more normal

VANUATU. 3944.2, R. Vanuatu (presumed). Sunday, Aug 14, 
as usual on the weekend, I checked this frequency to see if I can
hear the normal open carrier of RV that they leave on after usually
ending their audio programming about 1015* or so. On the weekend
Japan ("RN2") signs off at 0900*, leaving the frequency clear for RV.

Very surprised today when I tuned in at 1232 and heard definite audio;
YL announcer playing EZL music till 1300, when most likely news till
1311. Later checked at 1342 and had possible religious program and
religious music(?), but too weak to be sure; 1401-1407 seemed to be
news again. The whole time was not strong enough to make out
the language, but assume is RV based upon unique frequency and
clearly I was not hearing Japan. Extremely rare that I hear audio here
during this time period! My local sunrise was at 1325 UT.

Something new is happening with Radio Vanuatu. Seems
like a new schedule is now in place. Aug 15, on 7260, heard
them long after they recently had been ending their normal
programs, with audio stopping at about 1015. Second day
of their new extended schedule.

Today from 1326 to 1329, with C&W type songs; faint, but clear
ID for "Radio Vanuatu" at 1331; from 1335 to past 1400 seemed
like an OM being interviewed by YL, with him speaking at length;
poor, but positive is RV; QRM from China (PBS Xinjiang). Still
needs more monitoring to confirm just what
the new schedule is.

RE: Radio Vanuatu

Thanks to Mauno Ritola for his input via WRTH Facebook:

"Yes, both fqs heard also today [Aug 16] at 1200 via Brisbane
remote rx."

and later:

"... and still going on at 1450, on both fq's. Is there some
bad weather situation?"

http://goo.gl/VbhLXn shows no unusual weather activity for
Vanuatu. The programming I have heard recently seemed to
just be their normal programming (non-cyclone/tropical storm
weather warnings), which is why it seems to me to be an
actual schedule change, but time will tell if it's temporary
or not.

Had been silent for most of 2016; local Kajang sunset at 1119
UTC and my local sunrise was at 1331 UTC.

Heard 1327-1413, in vernacular; many phone conversations;
played pop songs; some adjacent QRM; light QRM from Tibet
(PBS Xizang) on frequency; mostly fair; singing IDs. My audio
at https://goo.gl/Cz4kL6 .

Surely this is back on the air for the upcoming Independence Day
celebrations. "Merdeka Day" (Hari Merdeka [Malaysian for
"Independence Day"]) - August 31, 1957 was the day that the
Federation of Malaya gained its independence from British
colonization; is a national holiday, with celebrations leading up
to September 16 - "Malaysia Day," which commemorates the
establishment of the Malaysian federation on the same date in
1963. It marked the joining together of Malaya, North Borneo,
Sarawak, and Singapore to form Malaysia.

9835, Sarawak FM, via Kajang. Quick check at 1324, Aug 22, to
catch ID and pop songs; fair.

11665, Limbang FM, via Wai FM, from Kajang. It's Monday (Aug 22),
so time for another Limbang FM relay; 1315 started with mention of
both "Limbang FM" and "Wai FM"; into the "Limbang FM" jingle; DJ
in vernacular with pop songs; good reception. My audio at

Fairly good day here, with only light RRI QRM; promo/montage
for "NBC Bougainville"; pop Pacific Islands music with DJ in
Tok Pisin/Pidgin; many time checks; suddenly off. My audio at
goo.gl/Sf8m7G .

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1236-1327*, Aug 24. Extended
long past their normal 1200*; they must have seen my recent comment:
"Wish they had stayed on longer!" when on Aug 19 they went off at
1210*. Today non-stop EZL songs; promo (once again time for St.
Joseph's Catholic Secondary School at Tenaru to stage their annual
grand bazaar this coming Saturday, at the Tenaru school grounds;
games for kids; selling raffle tickets; chances to win great prizes; also
with live entertainment), ad ("Mobile One") and health PSA, all in
English.

Not even one ID the whole time, so unable to confirm if SIBC program
or Wantok FM relay, but in the past Wantok FM always gave numerous
IDs, unlike today's total lack of any IDs. My audio at goo.gl/Al1w6a .

INDONESIA. 4869.88, Pro 1 RRI Wamena, 1207-1307, Aug 25
(Thursday). Jakarta news relay // 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya
and // 3344.86, RRI Ternate; ending at 1227 with patriotic song;
after which no longer //; 1229 "Programa Satu RRI Wamena" ID.

1235-1303, with the Thursday only edition of Kang Guru Indonesia
("KGI") in mostly English, but a few short segments in Bahasa
Indonesia; much stronger than normal reception; QRN (static);
still tough to make out a lot of what was said; many KGI IDs;
one listener told of collecting "KGI Magzines" since 2008;
segment "Good neighbors make good friends," discussing
differences between Australia and Indonesia as to whether
to walk or ride.

Recently it has become clear that a major change was happening
at KGI. Their extensive website was recently drastically downsized.
Seemed like the Indonesia Australia Language Foundation (IALF)
was taking over. At the KGI website, I see that KGI has now
completely stopped producing any new radio programs.
The final show was produced back in June. The program heard
today was an earlier production. We can only hope that RRI stations
will continue to recycle these older programs well into the future.

Have listened to these programs going back to when it was Kang
Guru Radio English ("KGRE") and even before that with "Kang Guru II
Radio English," in 1976, when Greg Clough was the original "Kaptain
Kang Guru." Am sad that they will no longer have any new shows.
Has been very entertaining listening to them over these past 40 years!

songs and some in English; several "NBC Madang" IDs; 1201
PNG bird call and "News in Brief" (logging story, with sound

item about a group working to end violence against women;
item about the upcoming sports games being held in Kimbe
this November); "That is the end of the news in brief" and
immediately off the air. My audio at goo.gl/wgDjMM .

Looks as if the Kimbe (West New Britain Province) sports games
being held from November 24 through December 10, will be an
important event, so we can perhaps expect major coverage via
the NBC stations. Website http://www.pnggames.org/ .

NBC Bougainville:

Aug 26 is a national public holiday in PNG, so special NBC
happenings for "Repentance Day," a religious holiday. Heard
3325 (NBC Bougainville) from 1151 to about 1239*, with a
double anomaly; first there was no "News in Brief" at 1201
(extremely rare!) and secondly running well past their usual
recent sign off time. https://anydayguide.com/calendar/2383

Highlights:

1151-1159: Interview in Tok Pisin/Pidgin.

1200: "11 o'clock"; ID; montage/promo for "NBC Bougainville";
another ID with frequencies; music.

1206-1239: Religious program in Tok Pisin/Pidgin; asked five
questions regarding the Bible (given in English, "#2 - In the
Bible, who is the oldest man?"); questions frequently repeated;
listeners told to write down the five answers and to call in to a
number that was given; several live on air calls from listeners
answering the questions; played religious music. Seemed to
go off at 1239*, as after that I seemed to just be hearing Pro 1
RRI Palangkaraya.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260) was off the air today at 1136 and
subsequent checking. Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) agrees,
as he found no signal at 1030, on 3260, but he was hearing
NBC Madang at 0945, with a good signal, so they went off very
early today.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, *1254-1307*,
Aug 26. Usual format; CNR1 QRM on frequency.

pips; in English with "Beijing time is now 10 PM," "Guangxi Beibu
Bay Radio" and "BBR Evening News"; into news in Vietnamese;
mixing badly with AIR Aizawl on frequency.

MALAYSIA. 6050, Asyik FM, via Kajang, on Aug 26 heard
open carrier, which would be consistent with the signal strength
for Asyik FM; at 1146 no audio at all; by 1352 heard very faint
audio; yes, was Asyik FM for sure, but signal was almost all
strong open carrier, very weak modulation.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay via SIBC, 1312-
1330*, Aug 26. Unlike my Aug 24 reception here with no IDs, today
no question as to who was providing the programming; frequent IDs
("This is Wantok FM 96.3. Good times, great music" and "The hottest
sounds with the hottest DJs, 96.3"; mostly pop songs ("Saturday Night"
by the Bay City Rollers, Dierks Bentley with "Drunk On A Plane," etc.).
I love it when they run past their usual 1200* sign off! My local sunrise
was at 1334 UT.

9545, SIBC. RE: Glenn's comment in DXLD yg: "Someone said the
normal schedule is until 0800 before switching to 5020, but I think
not, as usually no signal audible after 0500. No doubt they are
flexible as to QSY time (Glenn Hauser, OK)."

Glenn is correct, most times that I have checked, found similar to this:
Aug 22, heard 9545 doing better than usual 0400-0501*, mostly in Pijin
with pop songs; many ads in English for hardware supplies and general
contractor; 0500 start of news in English with sound bite from the Olympics;
suddenly off. Believe more often than not, sign off is about 0500.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020. Seems logical to conclude from
my recent observations that there are in fact two distinct formats
being used here during the extended scheduling that goes beyond
the usual 1200* sign off.

Today (Aug 27) and Aug 24, heard programming with no IDs at
all, none whatsoever, but have to believe was actually SIBC
programming and not a Wantok FM 96.3 relay. Today 1207-1245*,
with pop songs in English (Whitney Houston with "I Wanna Dance
With Somebody," etc.); series of ads ("Silentworld for shipping of
cargo, with dedicated shipping bay. Ship with the professionals
today, for transportation of passengers and cargo. All Silentworld
vessels are certified to stringent international standards" and their
website has a nice map at goo.gl/44nPtu showing their deliver
routes to the various islands that make up the Solomon Islands;
also ad for "Mobile One"; etc); suddenly off.

Whereas yesterday (Aug 26) heard a very different format 1312-1330*;
numerous IDs, usually between every (or every other) pop song played;
often with these IDs: "This is Wantok FM 96.3. Good times, great music"
and "The hottest sounds with the hottest DJs, 96.3", so no question this
format is in fact a Wantok FM relay; very different from the SIBC format.

Anyone else conclude the same? Appreciate any additional
comments, observations or corrections. Thanks.

Wonderful that they have recently been carrying more of these two types
of formats for their extended programming past 1200.

VANUATU. 3944.2, R. Vanuatu (presumed), 1250 on Aug 27 (Saturday),
noted decent level open carrier with audio just hovering at the threshold
level, with announcer and music; some ham QRM; so they are continuing
with their recently expanded schedule; by 1338 they had switched to
delayed sports coverage (assume delayed, as it would be 12:38 AM
their local time); strong background noise from the roar of the fans at
the game (very noticeable and not heard earlier), with announcer giving
coverage; poor; some slight improvement around my local sunrise at
1335 UT. ID'ing it solely on the basis of the unique frequency; never
strong enough to actually hear an ID.

This weekend reception only possible with the weekend schedule of
Japan ("RN2") signing off on 3945, at 0900*.

BBR with singing.

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, 1900-1940, Aug 28. In vernacular;

BTW - After the reactivation of Asyik FM on 6050, on Aug 22, have been
checking for other stations returning to SW, but as of Aug 28, both Radio
Klasik (5965) and Traxx FM (7295) both remain silent. Now 7295 has

PHILIPPINES. 9910 (fair-good) // 12120 (fair-poor/CODAR QRM) //

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, brief check at 1216,

this frequency was much stronger than clear, but unusable // 7295.

Have not been able to to hear the reported spur on 7395.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1201-1333*, Aug 28. Yet
another day of extended broadcasting; Sunday format of non-stop
religious (Christian) songs; almost all of them in English; "I'll Fly
Away," "Oh Happy Day," etc.; never an ID, so SIBC program; almost
fair.

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (presumed), 1143 & brief check at 1215,
Aug 28. This one continues to be off the air much more than they are on;
weak, but signal slowly improved. Dave Valko, via remote in Japan, was

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1139-1206, Aug 29.
A good day here; pop Pacific Islands music; 1200 PNG bird call and
"Good night. NBC News in Brief" ("Police in East New Britain have
arrested and charged a man with murder following the death of ...";
Australia seized 95 kilograms of cocaine aboard a cruise ship in
Sydney harbor; "forecast," showers and thunder showers). Always
nice to find semi-readable reception here.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, on Aug 29, with open
carrier at 0858; audio started 0900 with ID and into the news; did
not have IS nor time pips; today clearly this was the higher powered
transmitter.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1208 and subsequent checking
through 1238, Aug 29, heard strong open carrier with no audio at all;

Malaysia - Aug 30 "National Day Message"

Last year on Aug 30, I listened to a major speech given by the
Malaysian PM Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. Some of my audio
from last year at goo.gl/NB1j1C , with some English, but mostly
in vernacular.

This year he will again give a "National Day Message" at a
gathering at Merdeka Hall, Putra World Trade Centre, in Kuala
Lumpur. This important event will start at 1300 UT on Aug 30.
Last years coverage was via 6050 (Asyik FM) // 9835 (Sarawak FM)
// 11665 (Wai FM), all via Kajang. This years special broadcast
should also be via the same stations.

Full story at goo.gl/mHdS5H .

"He said leaders and public figures would be invited to attend
the event which would start from 9pm. [1300 UT]

Besides being broadcast live on local television as well as radio
be streamed live via the Bernama web, Zulkefli added.

He said the event would start with singing of the national anthem
'Negaraku', video clip display as well as recitation of prayers
by renowned speaker Datuk Kazim Elias....

The National Day Message was among the programmes being drawn
up for this year's National Day celebration..."

Re: Asia - Pacific : DX log (6) Ron Howard - Aug 30, 2016 16:22 UTC No.1546
Aug 30 - Yes, the PM did indeed address the nation of Malaysia.
Tuned in at 1311 to hear the speech already in progress on 9835
(Sarawak FM) // 11665 (Wai FM). Unfortunately 6050 (Asyik FM)
had another day of only strong open carrier (no audio from them,
but very faint audio underneath the carrier from probably Tibet).

Speech mostly in vernacular, with sprinkling of English words
("Global economy . . . global competition . . . Moments of Unity")
Briefly in English, goo.gl/yq41K5 . Speech ended at 1354
and stations then no longer //. News item - goo.gl/OnbGP3 .

RE: Shiokaze/Sea Breeze

Back to alternate frequency 5985, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze
via Yamata; ex: 5965; *1300-1400*, Sept 1. Another
Thursday in English; much stronger than Myanmar Radio
also on frequency; usual intro and into "Today's

surprised at 1356 to find Myanmar was off the air
(what happened?); after 1400 was a clear frequency.

Ex: 5965, heavily jammed by North Korea. Will take them

Shiokaze is the station broadcasting from Japan to North Korea
and dealing with the issue of Japanese citizens who have been
believed to be kidnapped by North Korea for the purpose of
teaching language there.

Now there is an interesting story of an American student that was
kidnapped by North Korea back in 2004 for that purpose. Full story
at http://goo.gl/uZL5oW .

"An American student reported missing during a 2004 hiking trip
in China was kidnapped and forced to teach English to North
Korean leader Kim Jong Un, authorities say.

David Sneddon, a Brigham Young student, disappeared at the
age of 24 in Yunnan Province in what Chinese police said was
likely a hiking accident.

But the body of Sneddon ・who spoke fluent Korean ・was
never found and his parents were suspicious....

According to Choi Sung-yong, head of South Korea痴 Abductees・
Family Union, Sneddon has been found living in the North Korean
capital of Pyongyang, where he works as a school teacher. He
reportedly is married and has two children.

North Korea has a long history of kidnapping foreign nationals,
and Sneddon痴 parents believe their son was targeted because
he served on a Mormon mission in South Korea, where his
language skills became known...."

INDIA. new off frequency 4870.57 (thanks to Dave Valko
for exact frequency), AIR (Delhi-Kingsway), 1350 with
subcontinent singing; of course best in USB to get away
from RRI Wamena, which I made out to be on about
4869.88, so the AIR off set is a help to their reception.
Do not recall AIR off frequency before?

RUSSIA. 5900, R. Rossii via ?, *1000, Sept 4. Transmitter
suddenly on, quickly followed by audio; news and ID; audio
was not very good, as there was some type of hum/noise;
not sure if just my local problem or not, so more monitoring
needed.

I confess I was expecting much better reception here, as I
often have very decent reception of Radio Sakha (via Yakutsk),
which is a pleasure to listen to. My R. Rossii audio at

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (presumed), 1345, Sept 4, again
only with open carrier and ABC totally silent.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1219-1224*, Sept 4. Normal
Sunday format of religious songs (no IDs) and briefly extended
schedule; heavy RTTY QRM, so unpleasant listening.

VANUATU. 7260, R. Vanuatu, 1127-1210 & 1233-1338, Sept 4.
Another outstanding day here; certainly one of their best receptions;
continuing with their recently extended schedule, which am happy
to say now seems to be their regular schedule; 1132-1201 non-stop
monologue in vernacular; ID "Radio Vanuatu, Port Vila"; into Pacific
Islands songs.

1308 "local news . . Vanuatu" in vernacular; regional news ("Minister
of Foreign Affairs from New Zealand, Murray McCully," about
improvement of Kiribati痴 waste management, water and sanitation,
as well as maritime safety; Prime Minister of Samoa about food
security and local markets; etc.); "sports news" (New Caledonia
beats Papua New Guinea 4-1, etc.); 1318 ends with main news
items again; "Radio Vanuatu" ID; news & sports surprising readable;

Hi Glenn,

March 17, out here on the coast, was only able to hear an open carrier
on 3210, randomly checking from about 1140 to 1340, but never at the
level to make out any audio. Imagine it will take an exceptional day
of very good propagation for any reception at my QTH.

Was checking due to Hiroyuki Komatsubara's alert that he heard "Unique
Radio" on March 15, via remote receiver in Australia at 1000.

3210 kHz shortwave 'Unique Radio' Halls Creek NSW Australia (Tim Gaynor)

Hi Glenn, A quick note to say I have activated a small low powered shortwave
facility from my QTH at Halls Creek, 50 km North East of Tamworth, NSW, Australia.

It's a licensed HF domestic station with a 1 kW day ERP and night time 100 watts
into the antenna. The antenna is a 35.5 metre vertical inverted wire with a 9:1
Unun and a ham antenna tuner on 3210 kHz.

I have had it on air quite a few weeknights from around 0800 till around 1300
UT although sometimes may go longer. Some weekends again from 0800 till around
1400 UT.

I would also like to air your superb show at random night times, if that's OK?
I've been airing a lot of my old net shows and also a mix of oldies. But would
like to have more DX style shows and maybe have them in programming blocks,
especially weekend nights.

So far I have received a few reception reports from The Gold Coast, Queensland,
and also Brisbane, Queensland.

Anyone hearing 'Unique radio 2SG' OR MAXIHITZ could let me know on email
nri3@... --- I will QSL for correct audio files and/or reports. Many thanks,
Glenn, and love your show. Best regards (Tim Gaynor, March 17, DX LISTENING

Hi Walt,

Here is some older info, for whatever it's worth.

RE: "This is Australia - Narrowband Radio Broadcasting"

http://members.boardhost.com/australiaradio/
(last updated August 30, 2015)

"Shortwave HF Domestic Broadcast Frequencies
2355, 2368.5, 3210, 5045, 5055 KHz in the 120,
90 and 60 meter (tropic) broadcast bands"

Today (March 18) again heard definite open carrier on 3210,
checking at 1215 & 1242. Even though stronger than yesterday,
still no audio detected.

Late last year occasionally checked 2355 kHz., but never heard
anything there.

Radio Symban (last heard by me on 2368.47) has been silent for
a long time now. Sent several emails to Tom Tsamouras at Radio
Symban asking about their status, but no response.

Regularly I check 5045 & 5055 for the return of Ozy Radio, but
nothing heard as of March 18. Last info I had from last year was:
Aug 24 - Craig Allen's comment: "hi Ron 5055 will be on air soon.
Currently building TX 1Kw." As is often the case with Craig, "soon"
takes a very long time, hi.

BTW - For a long time now there is no access to "Facebook Australia
Narrowband Broadcast Radio." Perhaps they took exception to my
disseminating their Facebook info outside Facebook?

I was listening to AWR's Wavescan for 27 December 2015 as I was riding my
bicycle to work today. Craig Allen of Ozzy Radio fame was interviewed and
I really wonder about the accuracy of the content. He mentioned low power
stations on 120, 90, 60 meters as well as plans for the X-band, as if they
are up and running. He only mentioned his own station, which he reported
moving from 5050 to 5055 kHz, as well as "the Greek station" on (sic) 2368 kHz.
Now my question is: are any low power Australian private SW stations actually
on the air today, or is it a lot of wishful thinking? He also mentioned that
his station was omni-directional, even though he went on to state that Ozzy
Radio was fed to a dipole antenna. Since when are dipoles omni-directional?
I have just read about 3210 as one that is now on the air, although not heard

THE PARROT PARROT BROADCAST TAPPING REPORTS AND SUMMARIZED
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
November 20 3277kHz structure of the Korean numbers station

1. Testing the microphone: 0 min 1 sec
Adjust the "One, two, three, two, one," repeated the phase of the signal and volume.
The syntax used in the ciphertext after a while the "ball two, ball, five, six balls,"
shouted several times to adjust.
At the end of the test the microphone, the buzzer ring of the oscillation start of the
transmission unit starts the transmission.
After the oscillation signal transmission puts a space of about two minutes. Whether
the microphone is on during blanks hear the sound of the voice or other radio chatter.

2. Digital signal transmission: 2 minutes 44 seconds
And it transmits the digital data generated by FSK modulation frequency. Usually
these digital transmission of syntax can be assumed that the communication made under
this government sponsored broadcasts is also due to take place primarily at the
national broadcasting password.
Modulation MFSK modulation is a favorite of Russian and Polish are used. Therefore,
the transmission would look at a subject that use the technology of Russia, it is
possible to speculate that North Korea is sending station. Western Europe and the US
is used as a wireless fax SSTV without these modulation.

3. Transfer the ciphertext
Down to read specialized in female voices.
Transmit the cipher text is accomplished in the following configuration.
<Country Notice -> recipient notices -> ciphertext sent "(repeated 9 times)

There passphrase has the following characteristics:
(1) attaches a number to distinguish a paragraph at the end of the password for the
password.
The numbers from 00 to 09 after play against random password ago, reading is a "ball
X". In other words, "01 01" "03" "07" thus read. This number is distinguished from the
paragraph of the password, and displays the number of iterations, and shows the
information of each code. In this report it will be referred to as <header number>.

(2) This is a unique way to read.
Read Numbers (aka artillery numbers) used in the Republic of Korea read the numbers in
different ways, not. For example, 4 is read as "neoyi" 8 reads as "yeodeup".


(3) it occupies a very large portion of the repeat.
In previous V24 (Republic of Korea) and V15 (North Korea) <recipient notices ->
ciphertext sent> is repeated and the difference between the first round and the second
round there almost two times (depending only way to read the numbers dropped).
The 3277kHz broadcast is repeated about nine times the ciphertext, and was attached to
the header number of "0 N" N times in the loop. It announces that the war and the
arrival of another new way.

The following is a ciphertext transmission structure written in chronological order.
Each loop shape is changed will be described in detail as possible.

3.1. Country notices first: 3 minutes 43 seconds
Country Notice is the act of informing the station's name and identity. Country notices
appear a total of five times during the passwords sent them announces the start of the
first notice is the first name of a country sending password.
"One, two, three. One, two, three, Doosan Rock Rock Rock Doosan Doosan"
Precise confirmed through forensic results were confirmed as "two mountain rock." D
pronunciation was definitely sounded early, "even" or "two" It was unclear whether the
3 minutes 47 seconds, "Rock-based" was confirmed to be "both."

3.2. The first recipient Notices (00 signals): 4 minutes 7 seconds
It indicates the recipient. A similar role or the shape and the number of the previous
V24 **** is different.
I recall a lot of random recipients jekki seems to yeoreomyeong in the last 00 fitted
with a "public".
This section requires you accurate tapping. I hear Bonnie "kilohertz" I think demand is
heard saying OK Green eoteuna Monde called.
4 minutes 43 "Please respond." Carbide and the completion notice from the receiver 00
and repeat the signal.

3.3. 01 ~ 03 Signal Signal: 5 minutes 2 seconds
5 min 10 Carbide 01 signal begins.
After calling several numbers denoted by the "balls 0, 1 single" Every time at the end
of each phrase.
5 minutes, 40 Carbide 02 signal starts.
After calling several numbers whenever the end of each statement puts the "02 ball
two."
6 min 24 03 Carbide signal is started.

4. The termination notice (the sun aboard 21 100 001 Parrot): 11 minutes 41 seconds
After all passwords broadcast ends the broadcast with "sun, Twenty One, hurricanes,

When initially estimated to capture the voice broadcasting dwaeteuna wear, catch the
broadcast voice is getting more wear out that is not the actual transmission of voice
is that woman. Is a sound one, sometimes hitting the microphone Took the grounds that
sounds or voices of men suddenly appeared and sends the "One, two, three. One, two,
three Rock Rock Doosan Doosan Doosan rock" that phrase. In addition, women's voices to
be heard around the rest of breath, or "Gee Darya" is seen as the play-by-play voice
faintly heard outside the microphone is likely to be.

Every time the broadcast is finished, "the sun, (number), typhoon, one hundred, one
public, parrot" and has sent a regular nature to end the broadcast. Because of these
characteristics broadcasting will have been nicknamed "parrot".

--------------------------------------------------------------
This is a possible new or previously unreported numbers station. I believe it is
Korean, but I am not sure. I have no idea if it is North or South Korea. This station
has been reported without great detail since early November.

The station cannot be received well at my location in the Mojave Desert of California,
so this recording was done on a remote SDR in Japan. Unfortunately the audio got muted
twice during the recording, so there are audio drops, but the majority of the
transmission is here.

Disclaimer: Many of the radio reception recordings on this Youtube channel pertain to
unusual, uncommon, unknown, or mystery signals that might be found on radio, both
shortwave and VHF / UHF. Among the subjects covered are numbers stations, utility
stations, military transmissions (both in the clear and encrypted / encoded), aviation,
maritime, ham radio, CB radio, radars, ionosodes, propagation beacons, ditters,
dashers, whistlers, and just about anything else that might transmit, in any mode, USB,
LSB, CW, Morse Code, FM, AM, FMCW, LFMCW, etc. Think of it as SIGINT (signals
intelligence) / COMINT (communications intelligence) / ELINT (electronic intelligence)
lite, the hobby version. All the recordings are made by me, most often at my home.
Although there are a few mysterious things to be found here, you will not find anything
paranormal, extraterrestrial, spiritual, or mystic. However, everyone can have their
own interpretations of the sounds heard, make of it what you will.

Certain points of the broadcast output weaker than the V24. Token posts could not reach
the Mojave Desert of California residents since the output is weak. So you use the SDR
receiver shapes in Japan.

in Aug. 2011 on 9000-USB; here is what they sounded like
back then https://app.box.com/s/vuz3sn373be28oeg6289 .
Keith Perron explained back then - "This is not the Taiwan
number station . . . This station comes from China . . . The
station is operated by the Chinese Navy and is very active
during military exercises. It's in no way a spy station . . . The
reason it sounds the way it does is because of the old
technology being used to generate the numbers. Back in
the 70s Taiwan's number station sounded the same until
there was an equipment upgrade in the late 70s or early 80s . . ."

"HAIKU" is the short fixed form poetry consisting of a 5-7-5 total of 17 sound,

It will entrust my thoughts and landscape to 17 characters.


Sample (by MATSUO BASHO) ** famous poet of Japan.

" AKI-HUKAKI TONARIWA-NANIO SURUHITOZO "

Season("KI-GO") : autumn = "AKI-HUKAKI" = "Autumn deepens"
Mean : Autumn deepens, hills and fields will miss is when comes to

Ron-san, ARIGATOUGOZAIMASU!

6225kHz,
I think that it is spurious to come out to be the winter period every year.

Mutual interference wave of 6125kHz and 6175kHz
6125 - (6175 - 6125) = 6075 kHz
6175 + (6175 - 6125) = 6225 kHz

However, there has come out strong UNID signal than this spurious wave in recent 6075kHz.

Thanks so much! Have heard the 6075 spur in the past, but 6225 is new to me.

My last log of - "MYANMAR. 7200.09, Myanmar Radio, 1300-1312*, 
Dec 28. In vernacular; pop songs; slowly improving till suddenly off.

Reception contingent upon both RTI and CNR1 (jamming) going off
together at 1300, but recently one or the other has often run late"

Today (Jan 2) a new development on 7200.00. Surprised to hear
MYANMAR mixing with CNR1 (China) at about equal strength;
1313-1400*. Myanmar Radio playing indigenous and pop music.
At 1400* CNR1 went off first, then a few seconds later Myanmar
went off.

Jan 4 - 4885, Echo of Hope VOH, noted 1310 UTC and subsequent checking.

I confess I assumed it was OTH radar that I was hearing today, but others
are reporting this as NOT OTH radar nor CODAR, but instead N. Korea jamming.
Sound very much like the usual OTH radar to me? Sorry I did not measure the
exact width.

What do Japanese DXers think?

Thanks for any feedback! Appreciate any comments or observations.

Myanmar:

Jan 4 on 7200.00 was another day of not only CNR1 (jamming) continuing on past
usual cut off time of 1300, but RTI also kept going. Myanmar was also noted
mixing with the other two. Assumed they would all close down at 1400, as I
recently noted, but not so. Myanmar Radio stayed on all alone till suddenly
off at 1437*; after 1400 was completely in the clear when I tuned in at 1406;
some ham QRM, but mostly fair/good reception.

"Kim Sat-gat Bang-rang-gi" is "Kim Sat-gat Wanderer's Notebook" in English, I guess.

"Many thanks for the tip. Great!

Just put on PERSEUS SDR in Japan and they are still there
at 1642 UTC. Looks for test...

I remember when I was at the HFCC conference at Dallas
we visited Continental. Here we saw a 100kw (or more)
transmitter(s) available for delivery to South Korea.
Maybe this is one of them because KBS is still using the
very old transmitters."

Appreciate his feedback.

Ron

4885kHz have come 6 hours: 1200-1800.
Frequency announcement every three hours 5 waves instead of 4 waves has been announced.
Broadcast time precisely shorter than the other 4 waves but it would be added.

Good evening! XYZ_san. I'm staying in Hokkaido, Japan right now.
I heared your Youtube audio.

Your Youtube audio(from 2m23s to 2m29s) is broadcast middle announcement.
This is not the end announcement.
Next program is "Today's News" in this station.
This station has been stopped in the middle of the theme music.

https://youtu.be/qR2lqpWdBGc
The Youtube audio of the above is cho_san's from Korea.
This Youtube audio has been recorded in Dec. 21 1300UTC before.
***Postscript start:correction
Oh! my goodnees! I made a mistake. I'm sorry.
cho_san's Youtube audio has been recorded in Dec. 21 1500UTC before.
This was not the audio at the time of the broadcast start.
***Postscript end

1300UTC is the transmission start time of 4885kHz.
But this is not the start announcement.
I think 4885kHz begins from the middle of the just before 1300UTC.

Announcement contains the following.
English:"This time of the broadcast is over. Continue to start the next regular broadcasting."
Korean:"isang-euloi sigan bangsong-eul machigo, god-ieo dasi jeong-gyu bangsong-eul bonae deuligessseubnida."
*** XYZ's audio(from 2m23s to 2m29s) and cho's audio(from 1m04s to 1m10s) are the same announcement.

Thank you so much for following me on ASIA DX BBS in Japanese! baido_san from Korea.

Echo of Hope has been added a new freq. - 4885kHz.
60mb might be contaminated with North Korea Jamming.
According to the baido's, this station is supposed to be being broadcast for foreign
by the Overseas Koreans Confederation.
However, the station will have been thought to be broadcast by the National Intelligence Service(NIS).

According to the Hiroshi's, frequency announcement will be broadcast every 3 hours.
