months of being on the unique frequency of 5979, they

EiBi says 1020-1410 in Tibetan via he site; Aoki says 1020-1230
Tibetan, 1230-1410 Chinese; but also 1300-1400 CNR11 in Tibetan, all
from Hezuo site. That would certainly account for the self-defeating
double audio. WRTH slick map page 55 shows Hezuo is in north central
China between Xining and Baoji (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
----------------------------------------------------------------------


As Gannan PBS changed most of morning and evening programs to Chinese,
it may be that it is relaying CNR-1 until the end time of 14:00 at night.
I appreciate valuable information. I will investigate as well.
I hope to be able to do 3990 kHz broadcasting and parallel check, but
at my location there is strong interference. (H.K.)

-2241- 5970kHz CHINA, Chinese, (not CNR-1), maybe Gannan PBS..?

Hi Mauno,

https://radio.chobi.net/bbs/?res:8554#8579
I have also asked questions on the Japanese site, but please wait a while.

5970kHz ?



BTW, 5970kHz Gannan PBS : Both EiBi and Aoki are mistaken for Gangnam's schedule.
Since around 2016, Tibetan language program changed to Chinese language program,
relaying General Broadcasting.

... (omitted the first half..)

Although I have not confirmed the SA/ID and the program name
of that, male Chinese heard on the back of CNR-1 is SOH's
"Nine criticism Communist Party" or "Dismantling the party culture"
(** program title) I think.

BTW, the program of CNR-1 will be "CNR news". CNR-1 may be
Jamming for SOH because it can hear multiple stations...?

Many years ago, Sichuan PBS-2 gave a nice SA in English, as
"This is the Voice of Golden Bridge." My audio recorded in 2008

--------------------------------------------------------------
The ABC NORTHERN TERRITORY SHORTWAVE SERVICE is back on air
this morning (Sept 12). Nothing was heard at 2145. But three
outlets have been noted around 2325. So they may have been
switched on after 2300. Noted are 4835 Alice Springs, 4910
Tennant Creek and 5025 kHz Katherine. All are weak signals
here, which is normal given that it is 9:25 am local now.
4835 is the strongest here (as always). So, I suspect we
will probably hear 2325 and 2485 kHz this evening.

AUSTRALIA. 5055, relay of 4KZ (presumed), 1428-1501, Dec 20.
Their first day on the air. Thanks to a timely alert by Rob Wagner!
Before about 1430 was mostly below threshold level, but by then able
to make out YL announcer; 1428-1458 seemed to be her chatting on
the phone; 1458 sounded like a commercial announcement; 1500
tentatively the news; poor and a lot of chatter on frequency in SSB,
in Spanish, which completely blocked 4KZ reception, as I was listening
in USB to get away from Beibu Bay Radio (China) QRM from 5050. On
a day with better conditions, believe this could be readable. My local
sunrise was at 1515 UT. Will be interesting to find out what power they
are running.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1039, with non-stop monitoring till cut off at 1201* UTC, 
Nov 4. One of their best receptions ever heard; at times semi-readable; in
English; many pop songs (Prince - "I Wanna Be Your Lover," etc.); clearest
audio from 1120+ with series of interviews about Youth Festival and youth
volunteerism; 1200, the usual brief indigenous stringed instrument; into
vernacular till suddenly cut off; a longer broadcast than recently heard.
An outstanding reception, at least for me! My three minute audio about

Re: Monitoring Indonesia website no longer available Ron Howard - Nov 04, 2018 20:56 UTC No.3566
Sorry to report that as of Nov 4, Atsunori Ishida's website (former 
http://rri.jpn.org/) is no longer available. Since mid-December last
year, he has been inactive. A great loss! Had been a wonderful
resource for the history of what Indonesian stations were currently
being heard and also for reporting on the date last heard, along
with some interesting audio clips. His site had been a boon to us
interested in SW stations in that country, even though there are
pitifully few of them on the air today.

Believe currently that RRI Ternate (3344.86 kHz.) is the most regularly
heard (seems daily), while Pro 1 RRI Nabire (7289.92 kHz.) is indeed
often heard, but certainly not daily.

Then there is also the Voice of Indonesia, now heard via RRI Palangkaraya
(3325 kHz.), with their various segments in different languages, but at times
with erratic broadcasting. Nov 3, at 1116 & 1150 and Nov 4, at 1206 & 1219,
noted VOI definitely off the air at these times.

It should be noted that Alan Davies, still maintains his website -
https://www.asiawaves.net/ , but the emphasis is on AM & FM stations.

Nov 5 - Another day of entertaining reception of BBS (6035 kHz.); 1043 till suddenly 
cut off at 1101* in mid-song; all pop songs; Steve Winwood - "Higher Love," Huey
Lewis - "Stuck With You" and Simply Red - "Holding Back The Years." This reception
made possible by the continued absence of PBS Yunnan (China). Sunset at Thimphu
was at 1115 UTC.

On the work of Mayak at 1377 kHz, the participant told the radioscanner.ru living in Sakhalin. I just wanted to know someone else hears this radio station.

FYI - This is my last posting for a while. Ron

BOTSWANA. 4930, VOA, 1514-1525, Nov 7. In English; surprised to hear the
relay of "in Ethiopia, on 102.1 FM"; usual FM format; announcer chatting
about "Make A Wish Foundation," etc. and playing pop songs; almost fair via
long path.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1102-1111*,
Nov 5. Cut off in mid-sentence, leaving a faint Voice of Indonesia here.

EAST TURKISTAN. 4850 & 4980 & 5060, Xinjiang PBS, 1219, Nov 6. First day
back again on these frequencies (different services), with their winter schedule.
Thanks to Hiroshi for the following details:

ERITREA. 7140, VOBME 1 (presumed), 1435-1510, Nov 7. In vernacular with
mostly HOA music/singing; in the past was always jammed with white noise
(or DRM?) a minute or two after 1500, but today that was not the case; still
in the clear at 1528; at times fairly heavy ham QRM, so best in USB. My local
sunrise at 1437 UTC.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, Maus Blong Garamut (Voice of
Indigenous Drums), 1140-1145, Nov 5. Segment of drums and chanting/
singing. Over the years I have often monitored this and recently noted they
are now giving full SAs ("NBC Madang, Maus Blong Garamut") more often
than they ever did before and also now playing more indigenous music.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1550-1554, Nov 7. The Wednesday only
"VOA Special English" program; today with "Refugee Artists Seek to Give
Back to Community"; program transcript at http://goo.gl/QsFrfJ , along with
video and audio streaming; fair and very readable.

PHILIPPINES. 15640 // 17700 // 17820, R. Pilipinas, 0227+, Nov 7. In English;
news; business news; "Provincial Report"; "DFA Online, news and events from
different Philippine embassies and consulates around the world"; poor-fair.

TURKEY. 6125.66, Voice of Turkey, 0401, Nov 7. Definitely off frequency, for
this broadcast in English.

Re: PBS Yunnan (China) again broadcasting on 6035 kHz. Ron Howard - Dec 01, 2018 19:32 UTC No.3605
Since September, both 6035 (PBS Yunnan relay of FM99 - Voice of Shangri-La) 
and 7210 (PBS Yunnan - ethnic minority broadcasting) have been silent. As a
result, I enjoyed some entertaining reception of BBS (Bhutan), on 6035, without
the normal QRM.

Dec 1, via WRTH Facebook - "Uwe Volk noticed, that Voice of Shangri-La is
back on 6035 kHz." Bad news for BBS reception!

I heard two stations from the end of November, but in my location the reception
condition was bad and could not be confirmed. It might be Bhutan and Yunnan, but
I could not confirm their language.

Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata, Japan, which currently is on 6085 kHz., 
from 1300 to 1400 UT, will shortly be broadcasting their annual special
mini-concert program. The concert will take place in Tokyo, on December
15. The mini-concert will be broadcast via Shiokaze and will often be
rebroadcast throughout December and January. It is always timed to
coordinate with “North Korean Human Rights Abuses Awareness Week"
and the international symposium held by the government of Japan. We
can expect a disruption of their schedule of languages, so perhaps
Thursdays will not be in English?

From KTWR Guam:
"Hi Everyone,
The staff at KTWR wanted to give listeners with DRM receivers a Christmas gift
this year. I have attached the schedule for our 2018 Christmas DRM broadcasts.
We will be doing stereo mode B 64 QAM to Japan and ANZ/SP and mono mode A 16QAM
to India. The latter set-up seems to be the best way to get decent audio and
reliable decoding with the poor propagation we have this time of year. Japan
and ANZ should get a very strong signal. (When we ran regular DRM broadcasts
to Japan, we only used 32kW.)
Have a great time enjoying this year’s celebration of Jesus’ earthly birthday.

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio. Sept 12, a day with very respectable
reception from this low powered station; 1156-1436; strongest feature
continues to be the old Radio Australia's "Waltzing Matilda," which
were always well heard at 1156, 1206 (end of news), 1218, 1240,
1249, 1305 (end of news), 1337, 1348 (end of news, which mentioned
"suburban Melbourne," etc.), 1357, 1406 (end of news - please listen
to my audio) and 1417; sometimes able to make out the Dacelo
novaeguineae; new email address - ozyradio@gmail.com given with
SAs; mostly playing pop songs ("Hooked On A Feeling," etc.); my local
sunrise was at 1347 UT.

With today's improved reception of Ozy Radio, also came improved
signal from China (Beibu Bay Radio) on 5050, which caused some
QRM for Ozy Radio, so was forced to listen in LSB for the best results.

Considerable QRN (static) and only bits & pieces readable on my audio
ending with Dacelo novaeguineae, Waltzing Matilda and "Ozy Radio" SA,

Craig's nice reply came back in just five hours.

"G'day, Ron

Thanks for the reception report. It is amazing what 500 watts does.
We now include the Australian Independent National news and also
a 10 minute world round up.

I bought a Pioneer shortwave car radio about 2 months ago, but I still
haven't installed it. Maybe today. Thanks for your report and next time
I'm in the state's we will have a beer and throw a shrimp on the BBQ.

BOUGAINVILLE/PNG[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville and 3260,
NBC Madang (PNG) were both off the air Sept 13, when checking
1018+; rare for both of them to be silent at the same time; this was
also confirmed by Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), earlier at 0940.

Probably due to the PNG Power Ltd痴 "Easipay" services, that crashed
on Monday, leaving thousands without power. So maybe NBC stations
were using that system to pre-pay for their power?

day so much; 1201-1420+; PBS Yunnan (China) cut off at 1201*,
leaving BBS in the clear; seemed to all be in vernacular; various
amounts of adjacent QRM, along with pulsating noise; 1216-1230

usual brief spots with indigenous instrumental music at 1201, 1211,

bad, as PBS was mostly just announcer in Chinese. Yesterday's

Re: Korea - Voice of Freedom now jammed on 5920 kHz. Ron Howard - Sep 23, 2017 15:02 UTC No.2576

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom. It was on Sept 7 that VOF
moved to this clear (non-jammed) frequency (ex: 6045); today (Sept 23)
is the first day North Korea moved the pulsating noise jamming away
from 6045 (now a clear frequency), down to this frequency; fortunately
the VOF signal is much stronger than the jamming, so reception was
mostly fair; first noted at 0941 and still jamming at 1414+.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on Sept 23 & 24,
from 1115+, certainly only RRI Palangkaraya here, with NBC silent,
but 3260 (NBC Madang) was on the air.

INDONESIA. 3325, RRI Palangkaraya, Sept 23 anomaly; 1203 without
the usual Jakarta news relay; instead almost sounded like a religious
program (Christian?), some slow tempo singing and what certainly sounded
like non-stop preaching till 1245; not the normal format at all; also the local
news coverage at 1400 was dropped today. Rare for them to cancel both
news segments!

BTW - Have been interested this year to read there is increased discussions
of moving the capital from Jakarta to Palangkaraya. Earlier news stories at
http://goo.gl/iM1r7R and http://goo.gl/4GPJ5V . Does this have anything to
do with this station being the last RRI station on SW?

Voice of Indonesia, 9524.95, continues to be silent through Sept 24.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, with first day of N. Korea
jamming here on Sept 23.

Sept 24, on 5920, at 1052, 1100 & 1143 heard VOF with no jamming,
but at 1148 the N. Korean jamming was here, just like yesterday; then
later at 1252 VOF was clear of any jamming. Seemed a problem today
in N. Korea with keeping this jamming on?

My audio at http://goo.gl/5XvUxh of "Bughan-e jjang" segment ("North
Korea's amazing") at 1100; audio with one minute of Sept 23 reception,
along with jamming and one minute of same segment Sept 24 without
the jamming. As always, am very grateful to Amano-san (Japan) for his
continuing support with the Korean stations.

during this time period, but Limbang FM must have been taken over by
Wai FM this year; in vernacular; played mostly pop songs; fair-good.

Sept 25 (Mon.) heard complete program 1220-1233; this weeks
adventures (dialogue) of "Tom," dealing with "Mr. Harris" wanting him
to take a business trip to "Guildford," so he drives there along with "Kate,"
but he is speeding and gets stopped by the police; very readable.

Voice of Freedom, on 5920, with another day (Sept 30) of just a strong
carrier and never any audio, but with the usual pulsating noise jamming
from N. Korea. The jamming is the same as was formerly on ex: 6045,
which since Sept 23 has been a clear frequency with no jamming at all.

To recap my recent interval signals (Ethiopian), as heard on 6090 kHz.;

Oct 3, from 0255 to 0300, finally heard the Radio Amhara IS.
http://goo.gl/9yN12V .

Oct 1, at 0254+, with Radio Oromiya IS. http://goo.gl/wjZFN3 .

Sept 29, at 0254+, with Radio Fana IS. http://goo.gl/3e1MXn .

Again, I am indebted to Dave Kernick (http://intervalsignals.net/index.htm)
for his continuing guidance.

The above receptions were made possible with the absence of the
Caribbean Beacon, via Anguilla. Is not clear why these were all
different, as certainly Radio Amhara is the only one scheduled to be
on 6090, during this time period.

Further monitoring needed while the Caribbean Beacon is off the air.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260) cut off at 1205*, on Oct 3.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. On Oct 3, again found
their programming well out of sync from the normal timing; instead of the
usual bell/gong being rung slowly three times at 1303, today was at 1244.

5920, Voice of Freedom. On Oct 3, continuing with only their carrier (no
audio at all), as well as the usual North Korean jamming.

Former VOF ex-frequencies today:

5940 - Clear frequency.
6020 - Decent signal from Vietnam, with indigenous music/chanting.
6045 - Clear frequency; former jamming here moved to 5920, on Sept 23.
6135 - Still with white noise N. Korea jamming, even though VOF has
not been here for a long time now.

MONGOLIA[and non-log]. 4895, Mongolian Radio. Off the air Oct 1; carrier

As Hiroyuki-san noted, SIBC today was on 9545. I noted their 
cut off there at 1152* (before they even got to the "Evening
Devotional"). Nothing on 5020 today (1018 to 1300+).

No Voice of Indonesia at all today on 9525.95.

Good news - as Hiroyuki-san has already reported - Voice
of Freedom, on 5920, today (Oct 11) again heard with strong
audio over the jamming (checking 1001 through 1322).

PBS Yunnan (6035) cut off at 1200*, with no BBS/Bhutan present.

Usual patriotic song 釘agimu Negeri・(For You Our Country -
http://goo.gl/hFdDwv), at 1229, to end the Jakarta news relay
via RRI Palangkaraya (3325).

The Wednesday edition (Oct 11) of "Say It In English" started at
1245 via Myanmar Radio, on 5985; a repeat of Monday's (heard
1218-1231) adventures (dialogue) of "Tom." Wed. program always
starts later than Monday's.

Yesterday (Oct 10), had definite Calgary (Canada) - CFVP relaying
CKMX (AM 1060), on 6030, at 1318, with clear mention of "Calgary
Stampede," underneath a strong CNR1 (China).

Also yesterday with AIR via Delhi-Kingsway on 7555.77, with nice exotic
Tibetan music/chanting/singing; yes, is scheduled to be in Tibetan, but
what I heard was non-stop music 1251+.

1500 distinctive station jingle ("jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom. Yesterday, on Oct 12,

So today (Oct 13) the jamming ended at 1506, leaving just the strong

U S A. 4875-USB, Air Force MARS net, 1211-1222*, Oct 15. Seems this

everything," etc.); 1212-1230 non-stop religious songs in English;
1230 montage of songs along with "Radio Vanuatu, Voice of (Bong

with "Daniel," Carpenters with "Top of the World," etc.); 1301 seemed
the news; started to get some China QRM. Checked for 3944.2 over

Re: Australia Ron Howard - Oct 25, 2017 18:10 UTC No.2664
AUSTRALIA. For many years 4835 kHz. was the frequency
of ABC Alice Springs NT, but that was shut down earlier this
year and is now extinct. Craig Allen (owner and operator of
the low powered "Ozy Radio," that was recently successfully
testing on 5045 kHz., till off the air since Sept 7), now has
the use of 4835 kHz.. He indicated to me "I was able to
acquire this frequency off the government."

http://goo.gl/tkBTEU and http://goo.gl/TmfoUS
"Status: Not Granted"

Craig inquired as to what the current situation for me was
regarding any 4835 reception. My reply:

"Here on the California coast the only station I occasionally
do hear now on 4835 kHz. is All India Radio - Gangtok
(Sikkim). Majority of days I can only hear their weak carrier,
but when there is very good propagation, I can hear some
faint audio. Here is a recording I made earlier this year -
http://goo.gl/Jw2yxo . They play nice subcontinent music.
As you can hear, even on a very good day, they have rather
poor reception via their 10 kW transmitter. AIR Gangtok
schedule: 0100-0415 UTC & 1030-1600 UTC.

Can only guess that Ozy Radio would have no real problem
on most days of being heard here in California over AIR
Gangtok. It is rare that reception of AIR Gangtok on 4835 kHz.
is reported in the SW listening press, unless from within India
or that general area."

Would indeed be wonderful to again have an Australian station
on 4835. Wish Craig good luck with his endeavors!

News of "Radio Sada-e Hurriyet Jammu Kashmir"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Internet radio launched by Sada-e-Hurriyet
Srinagar, September 03 (KMS): Radio Sada-e-Hurriyet-e Jammu Kashmir has
launched its round-the-clock Internet transmission featuring current news
after every hour, commentaries, reports, talk shows and revolutionary songs.

The radio has been working for the last twenty-four years broadcasting
programmes to strengthen the Kashmir liberation movement. It has been
effectively projecting the human rights violations by Indian troops in
occupied Kashmir. A link to the Internet radio of RSHK has been created
at the website of Kashmir Media Service.
http://goo.gl/N7yQjQ
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Anti-India internet radio broadcast starts in Kashmir
Posting the news about the launch of the anti-India internet radio on
its website, anti-India news portal Kashmir Media Service said on Thursday:
"Radio Sada-e-Hurriyet-e-Jammu Kashmir has launched its round-the-clock
internet transmission. It has been effectively projecting the human rights
violations by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir."

The launch of the internet radio assumes significance in the backdrop
of the cancellation of National Security Advisor-level talks between India
and Pakistan and the growing Line of Control (LoC) violations in Jammu
and Kashmir.

During the 1965 India-Pakistan war, an underground radio station - Radio
Sada-e-Kashmir - had started broadcast in September 1965 which used to
air news about the actions carried out by infiltrator in the Kashmir Valley.

The infiltration had finally forced India to carry out military strikes
against Pakistan on the LoC and the International Border in Jammu and
Kashmir and Punjab.

Although 'Radio Sada-e-Kashmir' claimed to be carrying out its broadcast
from the valley, it was later established that the broadcast was being
aired from across the LoC in Pakistan-occupied part of the state.

To counter the anti-India propaganda carried out by 'Radio Sada-e-Kashmir',
the local state-controlled Radio Kashmir also started highlighting the
successes of the Indian Army against the infiltrators and on the borders
against the Pakistan Army in 1965.

The latest anti-India internet radio broadcasts programmes in Kashmiri,
Urdu, English and Hindu.

Intelligence agencies here were tight-lipped on Thursday about the
broadcasts and on whether action was in the offing to block such broadcast.

I could check the broadcast between 0135-0600/0630 UTC, but the time after that
can not be known due to interference from the same frequency (7275kHz).

Re: CHINA : Guizhou PBS 7275kHz Mauno Ritola - Mar 13, 2018 11:16 UTC No.3123
But as you saw its carrier 25 Hz low, at least the carrier should be visible also later, so I think they do not broadcast on this fq after 0610v?

Hi MAUNO

Yes, I have not confirmed the broadcast after the end of 1600/1630.
I think Aoki gave me the old information as a reference with quotes
from old documents.

I am busy with work and I have not heard the radio at all these days :-(((

Happiness is hearing semi-decent 4KZ reception!

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

"Catch the Wind," White Plains - "My Baby Loves Lovin'," Olivia Newton-John
and Andy Gibb - "Suddenly," Andy Gibb & Bee Gees - "An Everlasting Love,"

officers were treating an unconscious patient and sports item about the Belgian
Grand Prix, along with marine conditions. Recently doing well and would call
this just about semi-readable now. My audio at http://goo.gl/3MmxR4 .

songs; suddenly cut off; their closing time varies a lot. Very listenable! My
audio at http://goo.gl/DqhG5A .

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NBC Western is named for the "Western Province" in southwestern PNG.
Have to wonder what ever happened to the Radio Fly SW transmitters
(3915 & 5960 kHz.), at Kiunga, in the North Fly district, that were owned
and operated by the Ok Tedi Mining Ltd.? It was in Aug 2012, that I last
heard Radio Fly on 3915. They have been silent for many years now.
Would think NBC would look into the possibility of buying the transmitters
if they were still operational? Roseanne (&#8220;Rosie&#8221;) Kulupi (former Radio Fly
radio technician and announcer) left the station many years ago and I have
lost tract of what the current situation is with the Radio Fly transmitters. Nice
picture of Rosie up on Mt. Robinson, with some of the communications techs.
In the background are some of Ok Tedi's facilities to process the mine's gold
and copper - https://app.box.com/s/uhm382tbyzy84fhvss7q .

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

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

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

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

A native speaker of Mandarin Chinese listened to my audio and found "It's the

Re: PBS Yunnan on 6035 kHz. with double audio feed Ron Howard - Sep 06, 2018 14:21 UTC No.3451
Sept 6, on 6035 kHz., 1200-1308+ UTC, had positive reception of 
FM99 relay per singing "Radio" jingle that is regularly heard one
minute after the hour (1201 & 1301) and followed shortly by the
station slogan in English, which sounds to me like "traveling with
the sound of Shangri-la." BUT today heard with two different
audio feeds, both mixing very badly together; by 1300 feel
confident that the UNID audio sounded like Chinese, so strongly
suspect Yunnan with this double audio feed (each different and
one being FM99). I often monitor 6035, and today this was a first
for me. From 1200+, BBS (Bhutan), when they run past that time,
always has a completely different format than I heard today.

Interesting development.

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

audio as early as 0750; at 1057 played Tom Jones with "Green, Green

1106 SA mentioning on AM, FM and SW.

Recently 4KZ has become a regular station that I enjoy, as they play many
songs I haven't heard in a long time. Sept 5, from 0948, pleasant listening to
Celine Dion - "How Do I Live Without You," The Alan Parsons Project - "Eye

"Creeque Alley," Oak Ridge Boys - "Elvira," Enya - "Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)";

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

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

As usual I find this is on much less than daily! My audio of closing, with "My Favorite

not as good recently heard.

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

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

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

1000: "Bodo gwangjang" program ("News plaza"). My audio

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

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

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

frequency!

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

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

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

Thanks to Sarath Weerakoon (UADX) for the following item about Nepal reactivation 
on SW, on 5005 kHz. Wonderful news!

Ron

- - - from WRTH Facebook (Sept 13):

Victor Goonetilleke&#8206; to UNION OF ASIAN DXERS

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

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

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

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

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

Sept 13. Carrier heard at decent level, but with no trace of any audio; this is not

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

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, *0940-0955, Sept 22 & 23 (Saturday & Sunday), 
with the "Focus on China" program. Both days suddenly on with program in
progress (identical program both days and also a repeat of what I heard last
Sat. - Sept 15); a readable audio feed from a CCTV9 documentary (they have
many video documentaries in English online at http://cctv.cntv.cn/documentary/);
this weekends interesting program was about the Shaolin monks and kung fu;
the Leshan Giant Buddha, a 233 feet tall stone statue; taking the worlds longest
cable ride on the Tianmen Mountain Cableway, then walking 999 steps up to the
Tianmen Cave (&#8220;Gateway to Heaven&#8221;).

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

Re: PBS Yunnan (China) off the air Ron Howard - Sep 24, 2018 14:15 UTC No.3489
Sept 24 - Both PBS Yunnan frequencies clearly off the air today (very rare!).

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

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

CHINA[non-log]. Sept 26 - PBS Yunnan off the air for third consecutive day.

7210 kHz., 1044+ UT, again only hearing VOV1 (Vietnam) in the clear; with
no PBS Yunnan present.

6035 kHz., Bhutan (BBS), with only QRM from N. Korea jamming of Voice of Freedom
on 6045 kHz.; from 1103 UT till suddenly cut off at 1144*; yesterdays observation
"announcers in English," I now believe to be incorrect; by 1140 today, am fairly sure
was in vernacular, not English, as couldn't make out any English words. A change
in their schedule? In the past 1100-1200 UT was always in English and also playing
some pop songs, whereas today was just a non-stop long winded discussion in
vernacular; reception today much better than yesterday; FM99 relay via PBS Yunnan
definitely silent again today. Needs more monitoring, especially now with Yunnan off
the air.

NEPAL[non-log]. On Sept 26, had 5005 kHz. silent of any carrier; 1051 to 1112 UT.

broadcasts of the public debates; per http://www.bbs.bt/na2018/ ,
"1st Debate Airing - 5.00 PM to 6.00 PM" (1100-1200 UTC); corresponding

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1053 till cut off at 1141*, Oct 7. Thanks very much to
Rob Shepherd (Australia), for the alert to BBS's change of schedule for the
segment in English; today confirmed English 1053-1100 (now must be in
English 1000-1100, whereas formerly was 1100-1200); mostly playing pop
songs (Lionel Richie - "Say You Say Me" and Berlin - "Take My Breath Away");
the change, which may just be temporary, is probably due to Bhutan's upcoming
elections and BBS's special pre-election coverage of the various debates; taking
the place of the former English from 1100+; today 1100-1141* was a debate in
vernacular between two candidates, along with a moderator (only the three voices
heard the whole time); today was one of their best receptions so far; PBS Yunnan

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, 1257, Oct 7

they have finally updated their announced frequency; now "3 3 2 5"; "From
Jakarta, R R I World Service, Voice of Indonesia, English Service, . . . You
can listen to us on shortwave, on frequency of 3 3 2 5," so no longer giving
"9 5 2 5 kilohertz"; news; 1312 "Today In History" (Oct 7, 2001, USA invaded
Afghanistan to fight al-Qaeda, etc.); weekend segment "Highlights of the Week";
"News in Brief"; "Indonesia Wonders"; at times semi-readable.

Oct 6, on 3325, I found no signal from VOI nor NBC Bougainville, from 1014 to

"Oct 6 at 1233, I try again and like yesterday hear no signal, but recheck at 1301
now there is S7-S8 of dead air again! Is Palangkaraya turning on the transmitter
in vain hope that there will be something from Jakarta to modulate it, like the
scheduled 1300 English, ex-9526v?" (Glenn Hauser, OK)

Yes, it's not uncommon now to hear a decent level carrier (dead air) on 3325,
after 1200, with no audio at all, that must be the VOI transmitter. Glenn must
be right, seems Palangkaraya routinely turns on their local transmitter without
checking as to whether there is actually any audio feed from Jakarta.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 1105, Oct 7
(Sunday). Usual religious programs of music and preaching; well above normal
reception; cut off at 1213*; as it was the weekend, no news coverage at ToH.

Oct 6 (Saturday), at 1015+ country & western songs; mostly sounded like
impassioned religious preaching and religious music; good number of SAs,
including one for "NBC Madang, Maus Blong Garamut"; noted cut off at 1206*;
well above the norm; as it was the weekend, no news at ToH.

TAIWAN[non-log]. 6280.15 and 7210, Sound of Hope, 1230, Oct 7. First day
that both frequencies clearly are without SOH; with 7210, now no longer being
a mess, as VOV1 (Vietnam) today had sole possession (PBS Yunnan continues
to be off the air here).

USA. 7505v, WRNO, on Oct 7, from 1004+, with no signal at all.

On Oct 6, surprisingly in English during checks at 0835, 0914, 1108 & 1137;
at 1144 finally in Chinese; recently well above the norm.

INDONESIA. 3325, VOI, via RRI Palangkaraya, 1336, 1428 & 1505, Oct 8. 
A day with only a carrier (dead air/no audio).

3344.86, RRI Ternate, 1338-1503*, Oct 8. At a time I normally do not listen,
heard the best reception since their reactivation; variety of music; segment
of phone conversations; nicely above threshold level audio; 1445 starting to
fade out; 1500-1503*, theme music, with assume a brief SA. My local sunrise
was at 1408 UTC.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1124-1150*, Oct 9. Change of schedule today. 
No pre-election public debate broadcast today, even though one was
scheduled to take place (http://www.bbs.bt/na2018/file/NA%20Debate%202018.pdf);
instead was mostly non-stop pop songs in English and announcers very
briefly in what seemed to be English.

Recently had been hearing the debates (in vernacular) on a daily basis
1100+ till cut off about 1140* or so. YouTube, with video of one of the BBS
public debates at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53dWwnCd6Qk . Yet
another day without PBS Yunnan relay of FM99 (China) here.

BOUGAINVILLE/PNG. Oct 9, noted 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong
Sankamap), at 1025 with the usual public service announcement in English
from the National Dept. of Health (PNG), World Health Organization and NBC,
that from Oct 1 to 14, all children under 15 must get vaccinated against polio;
this important PSA is frequently broadcast; today also heard the very same
polio PSA in English via NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), on 3260, at
1031.

INDONESIA[non-log]. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, at 1209,
Oct 9. No signal at all; a totally clear frequency.

ANDAMAN & NICOBAR ISLANDS. 4760, AIR Port Blair (presumed not to 
be AIR Leh [Kashmir]), 1404+, Oct 10. Per WRTH Facebook posting by
Pradip Kundu (India) - "Improved signal on 4760 kHz. indicates xmtr is
being used with full power," which conforms to my observation with today's
signal stronger than normally heard; audio above threshold level. Nice! My
local sunrise was at 1410 UT.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1118-1128*, Oct 10. No pre-election debate scheduled
today; EZL pop song; mostly announcer, but unable to confirm the language;
rather an early cut off time for them. Again no PBS Yunnan relay of FM99
(China). Will Yunnan ever return to SW again?

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, at 1131, on
Oct 10. In Chinese, without any QRM, as NBC Bougainville was not here
today; at 1259 closing announcement for Japanese segment; 1300, into
English, with news; "Today's Commentary," about an election; 1319, "Today
in History," during which went off the air for several seconds and then came
back again for some seconds, only to go off again and didn't come back
(1323*); so today's problem was at Palangkaraya, with a good audio feed
from Jakarta.

NEPAL. 5005, Radio Nepal (presumed), 1055-1116*, Oct 10. Since reactivation,
today had the strongest carrier heard so far; still no audio, but seemed improved
strength.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, 1347-1402, Oct 10. Clearly no Ozy Radio heard
here, conforming to info in ADXN-618 that Craig is currently off the air; AIR
audio hovering at threshold level, but slowly improving; subcontinent music/
singing. With Ozy off the air, now is an good time to try for Gangtok, which is
normally buried under the Australian. My local sunrise was at 1410 UT.

TAIWAN. 9410-USB+carrier, Fu Hsing BS, 1203, Oct 10. This was a post-BBC
sign off reception; not surprised to find this erratic station on the air today, as
it's National Day of the Republic of China (Double Ten) national holiday; in
Chinese with songs; problem with a different weaker secondary, over modulated,
audio underneath. Taiwan's other frequency (9774) remains silent.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1100 till cut off in mid-sentence at 1129*, Oct 12. Back
to the normal schedule; in English (unreadable) and pop songs; still with rather
an earlier than normal closing time; PBS Yunnan relay of FM99 (China) still
absent here, greatly helping BBS reception, which is now regularly heard.

LAOS. 6130, Lao National Radio (tentative), 0952-1000, Oct 12. The language
heard, from what I could make of it, certainly sounded right to be LNR; YL & OM
chatting (interview?) (via phone?); after 1000, always very much bothered by
adjacent QRM, but pre-1000 was in the clear. My audio at http://goo.gl/GFgwYZ .

MALAYSIA[non-Sarawak]. 11665, "Wai FM" and "Wai FM Limbang," via Kajang,
1311, Oct 11 (Thursday). In vernacular playing pop songs; several singing "Wai
FM" SAs; 1315-1400, the segment SAing as "Wai FM Limbang" (there is also a
Monday edition of this at the same time); pop songs and segment with a long
dialogue in vernacular; almost fair. So for the vast majority of the time this is
"Wai FM" and not "Wai FM Limbang."

Sorry, I should have followed up earlier regarding my item about Sept 16 being
"Malaysia Day." This was the first year that I can recall that RTM didn't broadcast,
via SW, the Prime Minister's address to the nation 1300+. Disappointed!

The RTM SW service has been in a steady decline for many years now. Was not
that long ago I could enjoy Radio Klasik (5965),Asik FM & Suara Islam/Voice of
Islam (6050), Traxx FM (7295) or Voice of Malaysia (6174.4, 6175.0 and 15295),
but they are all gone now. So they have put their emphasis now on their online
presences, as evidenced by the RTM audio streaming at
https://myklik.rtm.gov.my/radio/Wai_FM?r=regional .

USA. 7505v, WRNO, Oct 12, checking at 1005, 1140, 1205 & 1225, only to hear

Some interesting reception this morning! Ron

AUSTRALIA. Radio 4KZ, 0914, Oct 17. Fairly early reception here with
Dionne Warwick - "Walk On By" (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1101, Oct 17. In English, starting with what sounded
like the news (unreadable); followed at 1112 with pop songs, at a level easy
to ID (Tom Petty - "Free Fallin" and Michael Jackson - "Human Nature");
suddenly off at 1133*.

Bryan Clark (New Zealand) had very readable reception from his location
yesterday (Oct 16), till he also heard them cut off at 1133*; China (FM99
relay via Yunnan) still silent. I have been impressed recently by the daily
BBS signal, whereas in the past was not all that easy to hear. Now they
are very nice! (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1023,
Oct 17. Usual format; Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers with "Islands In The
Stream," etc. (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

CHINA. Voice of Strait, 4940, Voice of Strait, Oct 17, tuned in at 0947, to find
only a carrier at a decent level, but no audio. During my recent monitoring here,
always heard the sudden start of the transmitter with audio, about *0940, with
programming already in progress and then at 0955 went to being // with 4900
(which also started about *0940 with different programming also in progress),
with the Strait Fishery Meteorology (Channel fishery weather). Today a
completely different format and timing on 4940!

At 0953, had 4940 with their IS; believe in all my years of listening to VOS, this
is probably the first time I have heard it; at 0955 ID in Chinese followed by
Western classical orchestra music till ToH time pips.

4900, also noted at 0947 with just a carrier (no audio at all), till they started
different programming (not IS) about 0953. So today 4940 had a late start with
actual IS/SA and at 0955 not // to 4900. A one day anomaly or something new?
Will be interesting to hear what happens here in the future. My audio at
http://goo.gl/3pKSNb (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

MONGOLIA. 4895, Mongolian Radio, 0835+, on Oct 17. Heard definite carrier
(never any audio) thru last check of 1036, but gone by 1044. Hiroyuki Komatsubara
reported much better details today, via his "Now On The Radio" website:

-0828- 4895kHz UNID carrier, no modulation ??, (4830kHz No signal) 7260kHz

Similar format on Oct 15, as I heard a carrier (unable to detect any audio) 0904+,
on 4895; still on at 1044, but gone by 1058. So would seem 4895 has its own
schedule, different from 7260 and probably a relay of Radio 1 and not // 7260,
which is Radio 3 (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

TAIWAN. 6280, Sound of Hope, 1150, Oct 17. From 1150 to 1200, mixing badly
with slightly stronger jamming of CNR1 programming, which ended just after
their ToH time pips, leaving SOH in clear, with SA in Chinese at 1200 (Ron

with the news; after the news, two announcers gave list of the vote count of
ballots for the election; certainly one of their stronger days; today the few

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, relay of FM99, 1003-1030 UT, Oct 20. Heard
again here, after being absent since Sept 24; in Chinese and usual FM format;
many pop songs; about 1015 started to note some faint BBS/Bhutan QRM; by
the time I tuned out, BBS was improving and mixing badly with PBS Yunnan;
rechecked at 1057, and surprised to find a completely clear frequency (no
Bhutan, no Yunnan), so a very early closing down time for both stations.
Tomorrow I will need to also check 7210 for a possible PBS Yunnan return
there (should sign on before 1000 UT, with their distinctive easy listening
musical IS loop). Was wonderful to hear BBS in the clear since Sept 24,
but seems that will no longer be the case. This frequency and 7210, needs
more monitoring now.

On the one hand I'm very pleased to have Yunnan back here again, but on
the other hand I will certainly miss the clear BBS/Bhutan reception! After all
these years of conflict on 6035 kHz., why has one of them not moved to a
clear frequency? (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(17) Ron Howard - Oct 21, 2018 19:07 UTC No.3535
BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1039 till off close to 1122, Oct 21. 1039-1100, pop 
songs (nice "Stairway To Heaven" by Led Zeppelin, etc.); 1101-1107,
news in English (unreadable); 1109, back to pop songs (Aretha Franklin -
"Respect," etc.); no PBS Yunnan here during this time period (note later
reception under CHINA). Very nice to find BBS in the clear today, but
have to wonder what the Yunnan schedule will be?

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1129*,
Oct 21. Cut off during the Sunday religious songs; no VOI QRM.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, 0944-0955, Oct 21 (Sunday). The weekend
only edition of "Focus On China," with the audio feed from a CCTV9
documentary ("Along the Silk Road"); 0955 into Chinese. Seems China has
reorganized some of the former CCTV sites. Now am unable to access the
CCTV9 documentaries that I could just a few weeks ago. Now am directed
to China Global Television Network, or CGTN, which is China's new
international media organization - https://www.cgtn.com/ .

6035, PBS Yunnan, relay of FM99, 1209-1221+, Oct 21. In Chinese; usual
FM format; BBS/Bhutan not on the air at this time today (BBS off about 1122);
Yunnan not on the air here earlier (0955 and 1129+), so don't know just when
Yunnan started. Clearly Yunnan has not established a firm schedule yet.

[non-log] 7210, PBS Yunnan, on Oct 21, checking for their sign on IS at 0955+,
but clearly no Yunnan, just the normal mixing of Sound of Hope (Taiwan), which
was slightly stronger than VOV1 (Vietnam); checked again 1223 and still no
Yunnan, just SOH & VOV1 again mixing.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, briefly checking
at 1224 & 1234, on Oct 21. Another day with no Jakarta audio feed, but just the
Palangkaraya carrier.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 1130-1208*,
Oct 21. Sunday preaching in Pidgin, with religious songs, except 1206 started
religious show in English, with religious song in English, till suddenly off in mid-
song.

USA. 7505v, WRNO, heard at 1001, on Oct 21. Again with another program of
"A Time To Dream," in English; fair; no audio problems, as Glenn Hauser recently
noted.

off; PBS Yunnan off the air during this time period and also not heard at 1206.

KOREA SOUTH. First day back to alternate frequency 5920, Voice of Freedom, ex: 6045,
at 1140, on Oct 23. start of the "Aneun geos-I him-ida" program in Korean ("Knowing is

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 1149-1202, Oct 23.
DJ in Pidgin playing pop songs; 1202-1204* with news in English; cut off in mid-news;
stronger than normal signal.

THAILAND. 5875, R. Thailand, brief checks at 1134 & 1147, Oct 23. Yes, still in English;
good reception; seems a steady schedule now.

U S A. 7505v, WRNO, Oct 23, did in fact hear some of the very distorted audio that Glenn
Hauser has been reporting on; at 1127 in English and audio was fine; 1148 very poor audio
and also again distorted at 1210, in English. So the problem is intermittent.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 7324.94, Wantok Radio Light,
0740-0927, Jan 16. Started poor and slowly improved,
but never reached the level of steady readability; only
able to pick out a few words here and there. At times
hard to be positive of the language, due to Pidgin
using so many English words. The spoken modulation
seemed rather low, whereas the music was better.

0740-0800: DJ playing religious songs, along with messages & dedications.
0800-0810: News & weather in English (did not sound like NBC news?).
0810-0823: Religious songs (0815 ID).
0823: Announcer with brief religious spot in English.
0826-0835: More religious music (0829 ID).
0835-0855: Religious preaching in Pidgin/Tok Pisin.
0901-0903: Brief news in English; not the full NBC news that I often heard
in the past; followed my more music.
0934-0942: In English; unable to make out what he was talking about?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 7324.94, Wantok Radio Light. Jan 19 with decent signal strength 0813-0957, but with
moderately strong OTH radar QRM till that stopped at 0939*. Highlights:

0825-0845: Syndicated USA program "Fresh Touch"; preaching in English; ending the show with request for
listeners to write c/o "Wantok Radio Light, P.O. Box 1273, Port Moresby." http://www.freshtouch.org/ .

From 2011 till early 2015, this time slot was always taken by the programs of Dr. Tayo Adeyemi (New Wine
Church, England), but perhaps as he died in 2013, WRL finally decided to drop his shows and replace this time
period with the "Fresh Touch" program. Based upon my observations, believe the WRL website program schedule
has not been updated in a long time! http://www.wantokradio.org/radioprograms.html .

0845-0901: In Pidgin/Tok Pisin; ID, frequencies, time check, etc.

0901-0912: PNG bird call, into the NBC National News in English; item about mining in PNG.

0912: Sounded like the usual thank you announcement ("Wantok Radio Light Ministries thanks the National
Broadcasting Corporation for allowing us to relay the daily news bulletin. Join us at 7 AM for the next NBC
National News・.

0912-0913: advertisement for "NASFUND" savings, "Your Partner in Superannuation."

0933: In progress with the syndicated USA program "Focus on the Family"; interview with Mary Flo Ridley
about her books on parenting; presented with John Fuller and Jim Daly.

0954: Ending "Focus on the Family" with a promotional spot from their sponsor - "Ninety-Nine Ltd."

0957: CRI transmitter turned on, blocking WRL.

Sept 18 - Doing a pre-activation check for Wantok Radio Light (WRL). Yes, as 
usual CRI came on suddenly at *0957 UTC, on 7325 kHz., with a very strong
signal and went into Japanese. Here in California, WRL will need monitoring
before 0957, which was also the case in the past. Former WRL frequency
was 7324.94 kHz.

** INDONESIA. 4750, Pro 4 RRI Makassar, 1159, Sept 17. 
RRI jingle; ID sounded like ".. FM Programa Empat[4] RRI
Makassar"; two time pips (Time slightly off. Noted about
17 seconds after the last CNR1 time pip, as heard on
my audio clip); Jakarta news (item about quake in Chile,
etc.); 1223 patriotic song "Garuda Pancasila" (on audio
clip); again with RRI jingle and ".. FM Programa Empat
RRI Makassar"; only QRM at this time was faint CNR1.
This was sounding more like the decent reception we had
in past years from them.

** INDONESIA. Nov 14, a very good day for RRI reception!

3324.891 (Wolfy's recent measurement), RRI Palangkaraya, noted
off the air Nov 14, at 1300 and subsequent checking. Recently has
been on the air erratically.

3344.86 (Hiroyuki Komatsubara's measurement), RRI Ternate, as
he heard them on Nov 10, from 0930 on-and-off till 1500*, ending
with "Pulau Ambon." Not heard since by Hiroyuki, nor by myself
on Nov 13 &14. Looks like a one day event, but worth keeping an
eye on this frequency for a while.

3904.981 (Wolfy's recent measurement), Pro 1 RRI Merauke, 1441-1501*,
Nov 13. In Bahasa Indonesia; program pop hit songs in English (Celine
Dion "My Heart Will Go On," Diana Ross & Lionel Richie "Endless Love,"
etc.); 1459 RRI jingle, local ID and usual theme music "Love Ambon,"
which is also called "Pulau Ambon" (Island of Ambon), composed by
George de Fretes.

Nov 14, RRI Merauke, at 1304, with the Jakarta news till patriotic song
"Bagimu Negeri" at 1312; off at 1503*, ending with "Pulau Ambon"; ham
QRM, but almost fair.

4749.943 (Wolfy's recent measurement), Pro 4 RRI Makassar, 1317, Nov 14.
Above average reception; mostly phone conversations.

4869.914 (Wolfy's recent measurement), RRI Wamena. Nov 14, at 1303, with
music program; the best heard in a while. (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach,

to an inquire to me from Victor Goonetilleke about their sign off

normal. Thanks Victor! Is this a permanent change?

English program, 'People in America.' Today we tell about Katharine
Graham. She was the owner and publisher of The Washington Post

no QRM at all here. With my local sunrise at 1449 UT, I certainly would

1449-1524 checking, but heard only a clear frequency. So seems AFN

It is enough to allow confirmation of the signal.


Re: INDONESIA: Radio Republik Indonesia Ron Howard - Dec 07, 2015 16:48 UTC No.513
For me here in California, I listen to RRI-Palangkaraya in USB,
to get away from the light QRM from Korea on 3320. So my reception
perhaps is somewhat better.

Recently I have daily been checking 3344.85, but heard nothing until
today (Dec 9). First heard definite open carrier at 1349 through
subsequent monitoring till 1438, but never strong enough for any
audio, so reception in Japan was much better than here in California.

Re: INDONESIA: RRI Ternate XYZ - Dec 09, 2015 16:41 UTC No.532
Ron-san, ARIGATOUGOZAIMASU!

RRI-Ternate might are doing a broadcast by dropping the transmission output.
It was a much weaker signal than when it previously received. I was able to
confirm somehow the noise and interference was small.
Very poor(weak) signal...

INDONESIA. 7289.92, RRI Nabire, reactivated on SW. 0808-1026*,
Aug 2. Decent signal, but up against summertime QRN (static). Also
heard at the same time today by Dave Valko (PA - USA). My edited
audio at http://goo.gl/yu3ZNL .

Highlights:

0808-0900: Mostly non-stop songs; very few announcements.

0900-0910: Reciting from the Qur'an.

0910-1013: Mostly non-stop songs, with SA at 0931 (able to only hear
"Radio Republik Indonesia").

1013-1026*: Indigenous music, into monologue, till suddenly cut off.

There are probably two good reasons why this has been reactivated
now. It will be recalled that August 17 is Independence Day (Hari Merdeka)
in Indonesia.

Also Aug 18 through Sept 2, Jakarta and Palembang will host the 18th Asian
Games (https://en.asiangames2018.id/), which will hold major sporting events.
Worth checking for other re-activations this month.

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

7324.96, Wantok Radio Light, 1407, Oct 19. A quick check here found a clear

Since PBS Xinjiang (East Turkistan) left this frequency earlier this summer
for their usual seasonal change, have not heard anything on 4850, except
like today (Oct 19) covered by OTH radar (4840 though 4900, at 1243 &

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

announcer in Tok Pisin/Pidgin, but by then RRI Palangkaraya was
getting stronger; later check at 1432 found a mess here, as both

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

Here is a recent story (Jan 9).

Ron

http://goo.gl/IjeOpC


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NBC Bouganville was again on air tonight until 1055UT with same
weak signal as last night. Much weaker compared to Saturday evening,

RRI Palangkaraya with mostly music and IDs, while NBC
Bougainville was mostly talking (1327 phone chatting

by 1335 both station talking, with the result being a

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

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

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

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

STATION NEWS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on May 9, with special coverage 
(preempted regular programs); soccer/football game between English
championship team Leeds United vs Myanmar National League All
Stars, played in Yangon; was somewhat controversial, as a number
of people in England had urged the team to cancel the tour, due to
the situation with the Rohingya refugees; certainly sounded like a
TV audio feed, as it was not play-by-play coverage; noted at 1208
UTC. Game not on 5915 (Myanmar Radio) nor 7345 (Thazin Radio)
and unable to hear 6165 (Thazin Radio), due to QRM.

Excellent, full coverage via YouTube at http://goo.gl/LewACu .

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on May 10, with a second day of extended 
broadcasting; 1212 till past 1300+; in vernacular; conditions not
as good as yesterday, but clearly two stations mixing together
here; impossible to tell when BBS went off the air (about 1315?),
as today with strong adjacent QRM, as well as the usual QRM
from relay of FM99, via PBS Yunnan, in Chinese; by 1321 definitely
seemed to be only PBS Yunnan here.

BOUGAINVILLE/PNG. This was my May 7 observation for 3260 kHz.
(NBC Madang), "at times slightly better than Bougainville, which is
very rare." I had attributed the improvement to perhaps just better
propagation, but as of May 10, Madang continues to have an infinitely
stronger signal than formerly heard. Dave Valko, on the East Coast
(USA), has also noted the same significant improvement for 3260
and questions if something has in fact changed at NBC Madang to
cause this boost in reception (more power, etc.?). He is right to
question what is happening, as Madang had been very consistent
over the past few years with normally much weaker reception than
Bougainville. Wonder if any Asian DXers have noted similar recent
3260 kHz. reception?

May 10, from 1111 to 1134, with NBC Madang (3260) again better than
normal reception and about equal strength to NBC Bougainville; mostly
discussions in Pidgin; whereas 3325, NBC Bougainville, was mostly pop
songs.

CHINA. 6030, CNR12, noted on May 9, which was their last day here.
On May 10, as scheduled, went back to carrying CNR1 programs; heard
at 1054 and // 6125. Was a nice change to have daily reception of CNR12.

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (VOH), with new developments.
For almost a year, 4885 carried the separate and unique VOH program in Korean,
"Radio Broadcasting Guide," that was not // to any other VOH frequency. On May
10, suddenly found 4885 being // to the primary VOH program on 3985, 5995,
6250, 6350 and 9100. So they have finally dropped the program that consisted
of a series of IDs for all the different stations that were heard in Korea. Now all
the VOH frequencies carry the same program. Both 4885 and 9100 are
frequencies that are never jammed by N. Korea (why?), whereas all the others
are normally jammed.

May 10, noted 1138+, for about 15 minutes with no N. Korea jamming at all,
of any of the VOH frequencies (3985, 4885, 5995, 6250, 6350 and 9100). My
3985 kHz. audio clip at http://goo.gl/sMmqcp , with announcers chatting in
Korean.

May 10, at 1200+, heard 4885 (// to all the other VOH frequencies) with news
items in Korean ("Seoul," "Tokyo," etc.). My audio clip of "Tokyo" items at
http://goo.gl/NdMCuH and as usual with good reception.

ALGERIA [non]. 6050, "Qur'an Radio Algeria," via France. Update of my 
May 5 log noting English SA - On May 14 was able to record sign on intro;
*0358 choral National Anthem; 0400 time pips; several multi-language SAs,
including English, which are actually given as "Qur'an Radio Algeria."
My audio at http://goo.gl/F2fG2W , with the best ID at 02:06.

AUSTRALIA. May 13, had both 4KZ and Ozy Radio, with the best reception
that I have had in a long time. Some of the news segments close to readable.
Here are some random spots:

4835kHz. - Ozy Radio

1201 - usual series (ad+Waltzing Matilda+SA)

1224 - news & sports

1332 - news & sports

5055kHz. - 4KZ (from time-to-time SSB chatter)

1122 - Whitney Houston - "Greatest Love Of All"

1206 - weather (wind direct and speed)+SA

1213 - Patti Page - "Tennessee Waltz"

1242 - ad ("24/7 service")

1251 - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - "Teach Your Children"

1338 - Phil Collins hit song

1343 - promo for joining Australian Radio DX Club and gave John
Wright's email address (Happy to say I recently joined ARDXC)

1355* - cut off in mid-song (earlier than the usual 1356*).

On May 14, heard 4KZ (5055), 1339+ with ads (almost readable);
gave www site ("can order online"), followed by Lionel Richie -
"Say You Say Me."

BANGLADESH [non-log]. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS. On this Monday
(May 14), the 1235-1242 SAARC news bulletin was not heard, as it
certainly seemed BB was off the air; was only hearing CNR1.

CONGO[Republic of]. 6115, Radio Congo (presumed), on May 14, from
0540 to 0556; announcers in French (no music); amazed to find no QRM
from Japan, none at all from RN2, which is very rare. RN2 was on the air as
usual on 9760, but must not have been propagating on 6115?

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, RNGE, R. Bata, on May 14; nicely above
threshold level audio; 0518-0530 with repetitive African pop music; 0530
announcer (sounded Spanish) and more music till tuned out 0540; decent
audio the whole time, which is rare for me to hear.

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM Limbang, 1315, on May 14 (Monday). Start of
the Monday segment of the "Wai FM Limbang" portion of the RTM broadcast;
pop songs; frequent IDs. Believe these IDs are only used 1315-1400, on
Monday and Thursday, otherwise IDs are just "Wai FM."

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, on May 15, again noted 1355*, cut off in mid-song.

BANGLADESH [non-log]. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS. May 15, noted for a
second day that they were off the air; 1212+; only hearing the usual CNR1.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045.0, Voice of Freedom, on May 15, noted without the
normal strong 1200-1300 QRM from KNLS (Alaska); 1300 - "Huimang-ine jib"
program ("Hope-chan's house"). My audio at http://goo.gl/1FV1Zy and at
1310 - "Haengboghan Daehanmingug" program ("Happy Republic of Korea").
My audio at http://goo.gl/T37XVd . Decent reception even with pips jamming

MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, 1118-1131*, May 15. Phone in program
in vernacular; singing SA at 1130, then cut off; the whole time // 5985, with that
frequency continuing on 1131+.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC (presumed), on May 15, with greatly extended
broadcast; 1326-1350* suddenly off in mid-song; with the expanded anomaly, was
able to actually hear some audio above threshold level; non-stop EZL pop songs
with no announcers, so no SA heard.

TAIWAN. Sound of Hope. Hiroshi-san (Japan), has provided some very helpful
info regarding SOH, at his Japanese website that he updates daily
(http://hiroshi.mediacat-blog.jp/e128658.html). He observes that SOH probably
comes from Taiwan, but that has not been confirmed. Seems frequencies below
7 MHz are on 24 hours a day, while the other seems about 2100-1700. He makes
an interesting comment that he finds CNR1 jamming on about 30% of the SOH
frequencies, and even then is not continuous jamming. Here are the SOH
frequencies he heard May 13-14 and 15:

6230, 6280, 6370, 6730, 6870, 6900

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok, from 1240 to past 1305+, on May 20.

Thanks very much to Mick Delmage (Alberta, Canada) for the alert yesterday
(May 19) in WOR iog, that he noted the absence of Ozy Radio here on 4835.
Yes, I found the same absence today; clearly no Ozy Radio. Instead heard
definite audio of announcer with long monologue 1240-1257; sounded Hindi;
at 1257 the start of a very strong hum, that was still going past 1305+.
Fortunately there had been two independent earlier reports of the same
phenomenon. So this certainly is a continuing problem with the AIR
Gangtok transmitter.

First, Jim Young (Calif.) reported to me (April 21): "Concerning 4835 of late.....
Heard carrier (no audio) on 4835.00 at 1233....but at re-check at 1247, heard
more of a buzzing carrier that I suspected was a TX problem. Buzz sound
continued till 1253, when it went off the air. Normal sounding carrier (no
buzz) returned at 1256, and continued to well past 1335... I had heard this
buzzing sound here on previous days this week at about the same time, but
thought it was something other than a broadcast station with problems. AIR
Gangtok?" Appreciate Jim's observations that correspond exactly to the
following report in WRTH Facebook page, from GK, located at Abhayapuri,
Assam, India:

Gautam Kumar Sharma
". . . . An interesting observation on AIR-Gangtok on 4835kHz..sometimes
severe hum noise can be heard on that frequency..with distorted audio...and
then it goes off the air for sometime..and again back on air with no hum .but
after a few days..again the hum can be heard...& ...again back with good
strong signal . . . ."

Thanks very much to Jim and GK, for their most helpful comments.

SIKKIM & AUSTRALIA. 4835, AIR Gangtok, at 1315, June 5. Heard with 
a very prominent hum; their transmitter has had this problem for over six
weeks now; could just make out some faint audio underneath from Ozy
Radio, but Gangtok was blocking most of Ozy's signal. Gangtok local
sunset was at 1257 UTC and my local sunrise was at 1249 UTC, so

Re: PBS Yunnan, with no FM99 relay (anomaly) Ron Howard - Jun 09, 2018 13:36 UTC No.3286
CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, on June 9, very surprised to hear an
interesting anomaly; instead of the usual FM99 relay that has been
carried here since March, was instead hearing the former "Voice of
Shangri-la" format of non-stop music (no announcers at all), which in
the past was always played when PBS went past their former sign off
time of 1200*.

Today heard the same filler musical loop (instrumental), from 1141 to
past 1241+ UTC.

So perhaps today's anomaly was just the result of the FM99 audio feed
not being available? What will happen tomorrow? Recently the FM99
relay here had been running well past 1400+.

No hint of AIR Gangtok or their hum on 4835.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1125-1154*, June 13.
Series of speeches in Pidgin, about "Independence . . . our situation

which was almost as strong as NBC, along with summertime QRN
(static).

GREECE. 9420, VOG, 0255, June 13. Fair-good reception of their
SAs in Greek & English ("This is Athens. You are listening to the
Voice of Greece"), along with IS and assume National Anthem.
Seems to be a daily feature at this time.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut),
1200-1211*, June 13. Clearly a problem with the Port Moresby audio
feed of the news; a minute of dead air (carrier only), then EZL filler
music (no news at all); 1205 promo for "NBC Radio"; pop Pacific
Islands songs till suddenly cut off in mid-song; decent signal, almost
as strong as the NBC Bougainville signal; along with summertime
QRN (static).

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC (presumed), on June 13, with another
greatly extended broadcast; 1254 & 1335; strong carrier, but with no
modulation (no audio) at all; normally by 1335, I would be hearing some
definite music, but not so today.

UNIDENTIFIED. 3240, on June 13, noted at 1259-1306, with OM & YL
announcers; extremely poor, so unable to even guess at the language;
no music heard; most of the time was just hearing a carrier and once in
a while some faint audio. Could this be TWR Eswatini (formerly Swaziland)
via long path, with a new schedule? I scan by here almost daily and this is
the first time I have heard this. Still on the air at last check of 1335. Any
other ideas? Appreciate any feedback! Thanks.

Re - My UNID on 3240 kHz. Thanks very much to Bill Bingham (RSA) for
this input:

". . . seems unlikely to be TWR from Eswatini. At the time you were listening,
it would have been broad daylight in Southern Africa and unlikely to propagate
very far. I can't think who they might be targeting with that frequency in mid
afternoon (sunset here today was at 1523ut, and in Manzini it would have
been just a few minutes earlier. Come to think of it, I doubt I'll be able to hear
it in the afternoon either. Even Channel Africa from Meyerton is a stretch here
at that time and they are closer to 10MHz. . ." Very much appreciate Bill's input!

So it's a mystery! Definitely was a new signal there today.

June 16 - Rather surprised to find both 4900 kHz. (VOS Minnan program) 
and also 4940 kHz. (VOS News program), already on the air as early as
0947 UTC.

Mauno Ritola speculated (June 16) on WRTH Facebook page: "They are
in 60 mb already at 1015, so maybe 6115 and 9505 kHz has been dropped
altogether?"

Believe he is probably correct, as it would seem unlikely they would currently
be using 6115 kHz. or 9505 kHz., seeing as they are on the lower frequencies
so early.

On June 16, "Voice of Indonesia," via RRI Palangkaraya, on 3325 kHz., started 
sometime between 1030-1045 UTC, in English; 1101 switched to Chinese till
that ended at 1155; from 1155 till past 1308+, was only hearing dead air (decent
strength carrier, with no hint of any audio). Would seem there was an interruption
with whatever means they use to get the audio feed from Jakarta. Yet another
day with no trace at all of NBC Bougainville (3325 kHz.), which would normally
be considerably stronger than Indonesia.

Early sign off? Ozy Radio (4835) was broadcasting at that time.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, noted off the air June 15,
16 & 17, checking after 1000+. What has happened to them? Unusual for
them to be missing for so many days, but is a good chance to hear the
"Voice of Indonesia" language programs in the clear, also on 3325, now
via RRI Palangkaraya.

CHINA. 6035, "PBS" Yunnan, 1233, on June 16, with the usual relay of
FM99.

Not sure if appropriate any longer to call this "PBS"? Seems the name
"People's Broadcasting Station" is no longer in fashion, per DXLD 18-24,
(http://www.w4uvh.net/dxlatest.txt) and perhaps "Broadcasting Network"
will be the future correct title? This may help explain why last year
Sichuan PBS-2 stopped using their nice SAs in English - "Nationality
Channel. Sichuan, the People's Radio Station. SW 6060, 7225, FM 88.1."

FYI - On March 18, there was a reorganization. The new State Administration
of Radio and Television (SART), was formerly the State Administration of Radio,
Film, and Television (SARFT) and the State Administration of Press,
Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT). Website -

INDIA. 5040, AIR Jeypore, 1242, June 16. In Hindi and with subcontinent music.
Not bad for summertime listening, but of course with QRN (static). My music
audio at http://goo.gl/qQe3oR .

INDONESIA. 3325, "Voice of Indonesia" via RRI Palangkaraya, on June 17.
Started close to 1024; in English; 1124 noted in Chinese; 1223 in Japanese;
1300 VOI intro in English, saying something like - You can listen to our
broadcast on 9525 kilohertz; gave just the one frequency, so no longer
the "15150, 9525, 11785" frequencies given; 1316 segment "Today In
History"; not very readable.

Approximate language schedule per -
http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:133#3309 :

*0950-1000 (English) ??
1000-1100 (English) ?? [noted starting past 1000 and yes, in English - Ron]
1100-1200 Chinese
1200-1300 Japanese
1300-1400 English
1400-1500 Indonesian
1500-1600 (Dutch) ??

1700-1800 Spanish
1800-1900 German
1900-2000 (English)
2000-2100* (French)

Now that VOI seems to be staying on 3325 kHz. for a while, would be interesting
to know if they still broadcast the "Exotic Indonesia" programs, during some
weekdays, during the English language segments. In past years Glenn Hauser
and I often enjoyed hearing these joint programs of VOI-Jakarta and different
regional stations ("RRI Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan," or "97.2 FM Pro 2 RRI
Bukittinggi, West Sumatra" or "100.9 Paradise FM, RRI Denpasar," or "88.5 FM
world wide RRI Samarinda, East Kalimantan").

KOREA SOUTH. 6045.0, Voice of Freedom, June 17 (Sunday - weekend schedule),
with N. Korea jamming. 0930 - program "Namnam Bugnyeo" ("South man, North
woman"), with man announcing "Namnam" and woman with "Bugnyeo," then
together with "Namnam Bugnyeo"; presentation of a drama; 0940 - program
"Aneun geos-i him-ida" ("Knowing is power").

These programs still conform to the Amano (Japan) & Chulsu (S. Korea) schedule

except at 1135 they played "Blowin' In The Wind," which is usually
associated here in the USA with the civil rights movement and also
being a anti-war song (interesting selection); as it was the weekend, no
news at 1200; cut off at 1205*. As has recently been noted, heard with
reception considerable better than in past years. BTW - NBC Bougainville
(3325) silent on June 15-16 & 17.

RUSSIA[non-log]. Radio Sakha (7295 & 7345). Thanks to info passed along
by Anker Petersen, it is now confirmed that NVK Radio Sakha is presently off
the air on SW due to lack of funds. Hence they didn't respond to my mid-May
emails to them, in which I expressed the hope they would soon return to SW.

Per "RUS-DX," # 981 (June 17) - http://rusdx.narod.ru/bulletin/981.txt

Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)
--------------------------------------
The radio station broadcasting programs in Yakut and Russian languages on
HF frequencies of 7295 and 7345 kHz, prepared by NBC "Sakha Yakutia",
has ceased broadcasting since April 27. The project was funded by the
republican government, broadcasting was discontinued due to financial
problems. There is no information on the date of renewal of information
at this time. (Captain Flint / http://dxforum.ru/viewtopic.php?t=371).

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, 1307-1335, June 18. Decent reception for
this very nice summertime entertainment, even with QRN (static);
Bellamy Brothers - "Let Your Love Flow," Loretta Lynn - "He's Got
The Whole World In His Hands," Diana Ross - "Touch Me In The
Morning," Electric Light Orchestra - "Strange Magic," Anne Murray -
"Daydream Believer"; series of commercial announcements that
were almost readable ("quality eye care," etc.). My audio at
http://goo.gl/xyT9NR . My local sunrise was at 1248 UTC.

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, RNGE/R. Bata, on June 18, with an
early sign on; already on at 0516; music was above threshold level
audio; songs sounded religious; still with audio by 0530; not often
heard at this level.

INDONESIA. 3325, "Voice of Indonesia" via RRI Palangkaraya, on
June 18, at 1300. Start of segment in English; unlike yesterdays
announcement for just "9525," today sound like only "15150" was
given; whereas several Japanese DXers have been hearing all
three former frequencies (9525, 15150, and 11785) being given
for other language segments, but clearly not yet announcing 3325.

KOREA NORTH[non-logs]. June 18, at 1137. Briefly noted that many
S. Korea frequencies were clear of jamming; 5995, 6015, etc., but
didn't stay around to see how long this lasted.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut),
1138 till cut off at 1206*, June 18. DJ playing pop Pacific Islands songs
and some "messages"; 1157 full SA with frequencies ("Broadcasting on
3260 kHz. shortwave band and 90.4 MHz. FM band"); considering it's
summertime, reception was very enjoyable, even with QRN (static),
as the signal strength was good. My clear musical audio at
http://goo.gl/yhmRwv . Certainly one of their better days!

USA. 7505v, WRNO, 0434, June 18. Very strong signal; one of their best
receptions; in Chinese with the program called "Grace for Today"; in the
past I mistakenly called this "Praise for Today," but I was wrong; correct
name found on their website; have also seen others incorrectly call it
"Pray for Today"; still good at 0540.

playing pop Pacific Islands songs; public service announcement about the
election; local time checks (1124 UT with "24 past 10 o'clock," which is
different than the local times given on NBC Madang [3260]); summertime

extremely faint underneath. Glad to have them back, after being silent

Re: Bhutan BBS Ron Howard - Jun 20, 2018 14:51 UTC No.3315
BHUTAN. 6035, BBS (presumed), on June 20, with greatly extended 
broadcast; from tune in at 1147, still going through to when tuned out
at 1320; from 1147 to 1200, usual program of pop songs; 1200+
segments with announcers or segments with indigenous music/singing/
chanting; never strong enough to SA language, so SAing this solely on
the unique style of music; considerable QRM from the relay, in Chinese,
of FM99, via Yunnan. BBS did have some respectable reception,
especially about 1255 UTC, with Thimphu sunset at 1259 UTC and
my local sunrise at 1249 UTC, so nice grayline reception. My musical,

especial nice selection of solo indigenous stringed instrumental

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, intermittent listening 1115-1315, on June 21. Another
day with enjoyable reception; pop songs (Creedence Clearwater Revival - "Have

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1046+, June 21. Clearly off the
air today, so continuing to be rather erratic; only "Voice of Indonesia" heard here.

INDONESIA. 3325, "Voice of Indonesia," via RRI Palangkaraya, on June 21, at
1059. Full SA in English (ending the English segment); clearly giving just the 9525
frequency; at 1100 switched to Chinese. Again at 1300 started another segment in
English with SA and VOI news. NBC off the air today, so no QRM.

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (VOH), with new development.
In the past their 9100 frequency was always clear of N. Korea jamming, but on
June 21, at 1043, founded them jammed, along with the normally jammed
3985, 5995, 6250 and 6350. No jamming, as usual, on 4885.

This was also confirmed by Chulsu (Seoul, South Korea), per YouTube posting
today, which switched reception between jammed 9100 and unjammed 4885 -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRetOrY_btw&feature=youtu.be .

So now 4885 remains the only VOH frequency free of jamming or are their
days of clear reception numbered?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), on June 21,
noted 1210*, sudden cut off in mid-song; not as strong today as recently heard.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC (presumed), on June 21, at 1212, with strong

June 22 - Interesting happenings with Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (VOH). At 1105 
noted 4885 was off the air; very unusual for them to be off; while all the other VOH
frequencies were jammed by N. Korea (3985, 5995, 6250, 6350, and also 9100).
Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), at 0918, also found 4885 silent. Rechecking at
1148, I heard 4885 back on the air with their usual good signal and as normally
is the case with no jamming at all.

4885 (not jammed) // 9100 (jammed), had singing station jingle at 1157, along with
chimes and full SA in Korean; 1200 with "Onule Soshi" (Today's News), but then very
surprised to hear the jamming on 9100 ended at 1200, becoming as good as 4885.

on the air today; interview in Pidgin; promo for "NBC Radio" and separate
full SA for "NBC Bougainville," including SW & FM frequencies; 1128 till
suddenly cut off at 1159*, with pop songs.

The definition today of "frustrating," is having to listen to NBC and Voice
of Indonesia mixing together here rather badly, when the remainder of
the 90m band is virtually empty of stations. If only one of them would do
us a favor and move to a clear frequency! Both could then have decent
reception.

After 1159, VOI in the clear with Chinese till switching at 1200, over to
Japanese and later at 1300, switching over to English, with SA again only
given for "9525."

CHINA. 6035, FM99 relay via Yunnan, at 1220, on June 22. No Bhutan
(BBS) extended broadcast today; usual FM style format; Shakira singing

recently playing this song during the current World Cup games.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on June 24. As usual on Sunday,
was monitoring here and found anomaly; one of their longest, extended
broadcasts; 1103-1245*; religious (Christian) songs 1103-1110; then
preaching till 1145; followed mostly with non-stop religious songs till
suddenly off at 1245*, whereas they normally go off about 1200 or
somewhat earlier; most of the time with Voice of Indonesia QRM,
but with NBC stronger; after 1245, VOI was in the clear. My NBC
(religious music) & VOI (in Japanese & some music) audio, till NBC
ended, at http://goo.gl/xoc9ma . My local sunrise at 1248 UTC.

Today clearly proved NBC is no longer carrying the syndicated (USA)
program hosted by Stacy Rose ("Island Praise"), that formerly was only
on Sundays 1200+. I miss her unique music show!

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, on
June 24. In Chinese at 1103; into Japanese at 1200; into English at
1300; SA - "From Jakarta, R R I World Service, Voice of Indonesia,

also on frequency; 1100-1150, in Pidgin with long series of
interviews; 1130 one about the upcoming 2019 independence
referendum; mentions of "the government after 2019," "national
government," "local government," many mentions of "independence,"
etc.; 1150 nice Pacific Islands singing till cut off.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, on
June 26. At 1059, ending the English segment, again with clear
"9 5 2 5 kilohertz," mixing with NBC Bougainville.

Some of my recent logs here have incorrectly referenced "Pro 1
RRI Palangkaraya," which I guess I did just out of habit, but of
course that is no longer the case. Clearly they are not carrying
"Programa Satu." Instead is now 100% of the time with Voice
of Indonesia programming.

Last time Shiokaze used 7215, they were up against a 500kW CRI on

"Roll Over Beethoven," Seals & Crofts - "I'll Play For You," Lionel
Richie & Diana Ross - "My Endless Love," Jackie Wilson - "Higher
and Higher," etc.); commercial announcements; SA and promo for
joining Australian Radio DX Club; cut off in mid-song; summertime
QRN (static), but strong enough to easily SA songs; certainly not
their supposedly new 1000 sign off time.

BTW - Rob Shepherd (Australia), advised me on July 4 - "Ozy Radio
is currently off-air again with technical difficulties," so another chance
to check for AIR Gangtok. July 5, noted strong OTH radar blocked 4835
from about 1155+.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), on
July 5, with very good propagation; one of their best receptions; intermittent
listening 0941-1207*; some highlights:

0941-0959: News in English (long item about the 2019 referendum, etc.);
// 3260 (NBC Madang).

0959-1010: NBC national news, sports (one reporter from "NBC sports
Madang,") and weather, in English.

1010-1020: "Regional news in English," followed by the often heard SAs
for "NBC Bougainville," but also the not so common SA "Maus Blong
Sankamap," which is Pidgin for "Voice of the Sunrise," which is heard on
my audio clip http://goo.gl/awwTQn at 2:31; followed by commercial
announcement.

1039: In Pidgin, with comments about the government needs to support rugby.

1049: In Pidgin; segment about "Bougainville community government."

1155: Pop song - Jason Derulo - "Trumpets."

1159: SA, with frequencies; news in English; at 1205 noted was // again to
3260 (NBC Madang).

1207*: cut off in mid-song.

On my audio clip, nice Pacific Islands singing during the last minute of audio.
Today there was only some brief Voice of Indonesia QRM around 1103,
otherwise VOI was not heard or as later noted at 1215 & 1310, VOI with
decent level carrier, but no modulation at all (no audio!). Was most fortunate
that NBC was good today and VOI was having serious problems.

CANADA. 6030, Calgary - CFVP relaying CKMX (AM 1060), at 1223, on
July 5. Again found that CNR1 was off the air; series of comedians; at 1315
"10-60 traffic." So is CNR1 off for maintenance here?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), intermittent
listening 0941-1211*, July 5. I was mostly enjoying NBC Bougainville, but
Madang was equally well heard. It has been some months now since I first
noticed a marked improvement with Madang's reception, so seems not to be
just the result of propagation?

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap),
1021+, on July 6. A second day of well above average reception;
usual format of political discussions in Pidgin and playing of music;
QRM from Voice of Indonesia started sometime around 1100 and
continued mixing with NBC; spent most of today with NBC Madang
(3260), which was also above the norm.

CHINA[and non-logs]. 6030, at 1337, on July 6. Again found CNR1
absent here, leaving the frequency clear for reception of Calgary
(Canada). First noted CNR1 off the air on June 27.

6035, FM99 via Yunnan, on July 6. What has been going on here?
First noted by me on June 27 and now daily am hearing jamming
that sounds as if from N. Korea; today at 1337, totally blocking any
chance to enjoy reception of China. This must also be affecting
reception of Bhutan (BBS) at an earlier time. The jamming of nearby
Voice of Freedom on 6045, continues as before (no change). A most
unpleasant development! Also this from DXLD 18-27:
http://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1827.txt

"UNIDENTIFIED. 6035, 1214-, Jammer, Jun 28. Looking for Bhutan
45 minutes ago, and again now, no sign of BBS, but there is a powerful
pulse jammer. Who might this be? Not obvious from SW Sked information.
Cochannel China is audible. 73, (Walt Salmaniw, Masset, Haida Gwaii, BC,
July 1, WOR iog via DX LISTENING DIGEST)"

6165, CNR6, at 1337, July 6. N. Korea jamming continues here on this
ex-Shiokaze frequency. Will be good when the jamming moves up to 7215,
leaving CNR6 again in the clear.

[non-log] 7215, at 1337, on July 6, noted CRI is still absent here, leaving
the frequency clear for good Shiokaze reception, but is just a matter of time
before N. Korea jamming moves up here from 6165.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, on July 6, back
to normal operation after yesterday's 1215+ carrier only signal; today started
around 1100 (mixing with NBC Bougainville); at 1300, was fairly readable in
English, as NBC was gone by then; the usual "9-5-2-5 kilohertz" intro.

At 1301, the VOI news (interesting item about Argentine Ambassador to
Indonesia expressed his appreciation for the launch of Broadcast Program
Exchange with Radio Republik Indonesia today. According to him, radio is
one medium that is relied upon by the people of Argentina in obtaining
information. He said "Radio was an important tool in the past, but radio
may still be the strongest communication tool in my country. Radio programs
spread in Argentina. Everyone listens to radio, in the car, while working, you
hear people's comments." To date, four countries have signed cooperation
agreements with RRI regarding the sharing of information/programs, namely
Russia, Thailand, Brunei and Malaysia); followed by "Today's Commentary."

At 1314, "Today in History" (July 6, 1975, the Comoros Islands, off coast of
Africa, declared independence; this date in 1998, the Hong Kong Kai Tak
airport closed, and this date 2007, the IOC approved the creation of a youth
version of the Olympic Games). Very enjoyable to again hear the VOI in
English with decent reception!

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 1048,
July 6. Above the norm, even with summertime QRN (static); series of speeches
in Pidgin; 1136-1141 comedy skit in Pidgin, with a lot of laughing; 1151-1200
religious segment (preaching and singing); 1201 NBC news in English (item
about the execution of the Japanese cult leader responsible for Tokyo's Sarin
attack in 1994, etc.); 1204 into "NBC Radio" relay from Port Moresby, in English;
playing pop songs till cut off at 1222* in mid-song. John Wilkins (CO, USA) also
"Noticed the enhanced PNG sigs" today, as we were both listening at the same
time.

My three minute audio clip (one minute comedy, next minute nice Pacific Islands
singing and final minute with religious singing), at http://goo.gl/ijXXdf .

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(16) Ron Howard - Jul 08, 2018 03:04 UTC No.3342
AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, 1147, July 7. Commercial announcement;
sounded like Bob Dylan with "Blowin' In The Wind." Just as happened
on July 5, today cut off at 1151*, so must be on a timer? Need to check
a few more times to be sure.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1207, July 7. Announcer till 1212, then the normal
break for the very distinctive indigenous stringed instrumental till cut off at
1214*; mixing with relay of FM99, via Yunnan (China), that was in Chinese;
yet another day with the UNID jamming that has been heard here recently.
Without the jamming, this would have been an interesting reception!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1115,
July 7. Both NBC and Voice of Indonesia mixing together about equal strength,
causing a mess; not worth listening to.

CHINA. 6035, FM99 relay, via Yunnan, 1207+, on July 7. BBS (Bhutan) QRM
till 1214*; at 1209, with the usual song by Shakira ("Waka Waka" - This Time for
Africa); moderately strong jamming noted the whole time.

17398-USB, Guangzhou Coast Radio Station (presumed), on July 7, noted 1106*,
after YL in Chinese with assume marine weather; almost fair; one of their better
receptions.

MONGOLIA. 7260, Mongolian Radio 3 (presumed), at 1203, July 7. Pop songs;
much stronger than QRM from China far underneath; today definite carrier (no
audio) on 4895, which must have been them; nothing on 4830.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), July 7,
with yet another day of decent reception till cut off at 1202*; as it was Saturday,
there was no 1200 news on the weekend.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (presumed), 1223, July 7. Heard a carrier that I
think could be them, as it seems Ozy Radio is still off the air here. Yesterday
also noted a prominent carrier here at 1325 (not Ozy).

USA. 7505v, WRNO, 1114 & 1153, July 7. Not in the usual Chinese, but instead
religious program in English; later at 1207, found them in Chinese; fair.

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ. Recently had been hearing a 1151* cut
off time and speculated was on a timer. July 9, at 1118-1150* (very
close to 1151); playing Bobby Darin - "Dream Lover," Crowded
House - "Don't Dream It's Over," etc. On July 10, was close to
1150:43* and on July 11, off close to 1150:35*, so yes definitely
closing down via a timer.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, 1235-1242, July 9.
The Monday only SAARC (The South Asian Association for Regional
Cooperation) news bulletin in English; 鄭ssalamu alaikum. This is
Bangladesh Betar・ item - UN Secretary-General's visit to Bangladesh
regarding refugees, etc.; less than semi-readable due to CODAR and
CNR1 QRM; 1242 into Bangla.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on July 8, noted that Voice
of Indonesia started QRM at *1056, in English; mixing with NBC. On
July 9, at 1016 with local Bougainville news in English; today VOI *1116.
On July 10, NBC with 1204* cut off.

Almost daily I scan 90m for PNG stations (and 3905), but for a long time
now only 3260 & 3325 are active.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1218-1230, July 9. Monday edition of
"Say It In English"; more misadventures of "Tom" and his aunt "Jennifer,"
who was learning to drive, during which she hits another car in a parking
lot and "Tom" worries that the car hit belongs to his boss, "Mr. Harris."

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang ("Maus Blong Garamut" - voice
of indigenous drums), at 1108, July 9. Nice to hear the full SA for "NBC
Madang, Maus Blong Garamut." July 11, from 1156 till cut off at 1219*;
on the air slightly longer than normal.

TAIWAN. 9410-USB+carrier, Fu Hsing BS, 1222, July 11. While this isn't
exactly rare, it certainly is off the air most days; announcer in Chinese, playing
some music; one of their better receptions here; of course only possible as BBC's
(Singapore) strong reception ended here about 1200*; Taiwan's other frequency
(9774) remains silent.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(16) Ron Howard - Jul 17, 2018 05:38 UTC No.3354
AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, July 16, at 1111, played Eddie Floyd's song
"Knock On Wood"; cut off close to 1150:09*; on July 13, cut off close
to 1150:26*, so each day off a little earlier than before (previously -
July 11, close to 1150:35*, July 10, close to 1150:43*).

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on July 14, at 1110, noted mixing with FM99
relay via Yunnan and also with jamming here, BBS cut off at 1133*,
leaving just jamming and Yunnan.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on July 16, noted 1200*.
Unable to hear Voice of Indonesia till after 1200, as NBC was so much
stronger today than VOI.

CHINA. 9820, Beibu Bay Radio, 1136-1310, July 12. Mostly in Chinese
and Vietnamese; EZL pop songs; each ToH Chinese and English time
checks for Beijing time. Has been a long time since I last checked this
frequency, as in the past it was always found with stronger stations
blocking reception, but not so now; nice clear frequency and good signal;
occasional IDs in English; // 5050. July 13, with "Showtime"(?) music show,
playing top ten songs; fair.

6030, am not positive as to what is happening here? Still hearing Calgary
(CFVP), but sounds to me like it could also be DRM from China. On July 16,
at 1242, possibly a DRM signal; would seem rather late to be
hearing strong Cuban jamming. Needs more work.

6035, FM99 (Voice of Shangri-la) via Yunnan. On July 15, at 1300 with time
pips and singing ID (several clear mentions of "Radio"); usual FM format.
When I returned home, checked at 1500 for their live audio streaming at
http://www.wodt.net/play/2568-1-1.html and indeed heard the identical
singing ID jingle; also via on-line streaming an occasional mention of
"Shangri-la," as on the web it's shown as FM99 Voice of Shangri-la. Program
schedule (Chinese) - http://www.qingting.fm/radios/20139 . Still hearing an
UNID jammer here, that started about June 27. My audio clip at
http://goo.gl/ZB1u6m .

KOREA NORTH. 6165, on July 16, the Shiokaze jammer is still here (1300+),
even though Shiokaze moved to 7215 back on July 4. Am beginning to think
the DPRK Shiokaze jamming section must be on summer vacation? Do not
recall them being this late before in noting the change in frequency. Also noted
Voice of Hope (5995) non-jamming anomaly today. 7215, as of today was a nice
clear frequency for the strong Shiokaze signal.

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (VOH), on July 16.

4885, at 0930, mixing with equal strength Brazil (R. Clube do Para); as time
went by Brazil dropped down and VOH become good reception as usual.
VOH never with any N. Korea jamming here.

5995, with major anomaly today, as from 0934 till past 1324+, there was no
N. Korea jamming here at all (rare - don't recall this ever happened like this
before!); good reception. At 0959 the usual musical SA ("V-O-H") and
then the "Onule Soshi" (Today's News) program (items about "Singapore,"
"Washington," etc.) My audio clip at http://goo.gl/QVYHWn .

9100, had times of no jamming and other times with jamming.

All other VOH frequencies jammed as usual (3985 // 6250 // 6350), from
0934 to 1324+.

All VOH frequencies now only carrying the same program.

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM - Limbang, July 12, yet another Thursday with
their unique IDs for "Wai FM - Limbang"; scheduled 1315-1400. Surprised
today to hear this and also 9835 (Sarawak FM) go off the air at 1400*, just
as the news started. An anomaly? "Wai FM - Limbang" is also on Monday
at the same time.

TAIWAN. 9410-USB+carrier, Fu Hsing BS, 1250-1300*, July 16. In Chinese;
some nice music; last heard here on July 11. Their sign off time conforms to
their schedule. Taiwan's other frequency (9774) remains silent. My audio at

On The Family" movie review; into "Radio History for Beginners,"
about the broadcast of "War of the Worlds"; very good reception;
strong signal.

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, July 21, cut off close to 1149:45*; July 19,
with close to 1149:54* cut off (previously - July 16 with 1150:09*;
July 13, at 1150:26*; July 11, at 1150:35*, July 10, at 1150:43*).

CHINA. 5990 // 9850, Qinghai, at 1311, on July 21. Assume in scheduled
Tibetan; clearly // with their unique indigenous music.

6030, at 1246, on July 21, certainly sounded like a DRM signal (tentative),
mixing with Calgary (Canada); also noted at 1221, on July 22.

6035, FM99 relay, via Yunnan. Rather strange one day only anomaly on
July 20, from 1215 to 1353; heard with what I think must have been two
separate audio feeds from Yunnan; one was the normal FM99 format and
also the stronger audio, and a second weaker audio also in Chinese, with
EZL pop songs, along with the usual jamming; first time I have heard this,
after almost daily monitoring here. The second UNID audio clearly not
Bhutan (BBS). July 21, back to normal with just FM99 and the usual
jamming.

6145 // 9780, Qinghai ("Qinghai News Comprehensive Broadcasting" -
Google translation), 1317, July 22. In Chinese; playing EZL pop songs;
seemed a relay of their FM 98.9 & AM 666 stations; both frequencies
doing fairly well.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1309-1315, July 22. The usual "Country Roads"
Sunday music show with nice sounding YL DJ in English; songs -
"Tennessee Waltz," "Teach Your Children," and "Rhinestone Cowboy";
local IDs. Am not a fan of C&W music, but I have enjoyed this show for
many years now. At 1315 into Hindi.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, 1158
closing announcements for Chinese segment, till 1201 into Japanese,
on July 22; VOI the only station here; the last two days NBC Bougainville
has been off the air; 1301, SA in English; still with "9-5-2-5 kilohertz"
frequency; into the VOI news; less than semi-readable.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 7215, Shiokaze, at 1257, strong N. Korea jamming;
*1258 strong CRI sign on; *1300 sign on of Shiokaze, on July 21; very poor
under CRI and jamming. My audio http://goo.gl/UbXSRw .

July 17, at 1301. Heard with good reception; no jamming and no CRI, but
the next day (July 18), both Dan Sheedy (Calif., USA) and Hiroshi (Japan)
found that CRI had finally resumed using this frequency, with their usual
strong signal, so very heavy QRM against Shiokaze. On July 19 (Thursday),
I also noted the strong CRI signal at 1303, blocking any meaningful reception
in English of Shiokaze.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, on July 17, at 1058, pop song
(James Brown - "I Feel Good"); 1100 - "Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo" ("Korean
people, to unity, to the future"); closing 1403-1406* with song "Aleumdaun
Nala" ("Beautiful Country"); daily is jammed by N. Korea, but VOF signal is
strong, so reception is still fair.

LAOS. 6130, Lao National Radio, 1237-1255, July 22. Not often I get audio
here and also without a lot of adjacent QRM, but today it happened; seemed
to be in Laotian and with indigenous music; poor reception, but happy to have
even this. My poor audio at http://goo.gl/yN4H8G . My local sunrise was at
1305 UTC. Thanks to Steve McDonald (BC, Canada) for the reminder about
checking for this.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut). At 1208*,
on July 22. Cut off in mid-song after the normal Sunday religious programs;
preaching in Pidgin and religious songs.

On July 21 (Saturday), nice program of Pacific Islands pop songs; 1103-1214*
cut off in mid-song; weekend, so no news at 1200; DJ in Pidgin mentions
"Saturday night" many times.

July 20, at 1156, with pop song ("Iko Iko," per Youtube "performed by Pacific
Island sensation, Justin Wellington and Small Jam," he was born in PNG -
http://goo.gl/5qNNC7 . Last year heard this same song via Solomon Islands -
SIBC - on 9545); 1159 "The best in music now, on NBC Madang, right here";
1200-1203 PNG bird call and NBC news; followed by discussion about the
Bougainville 2019 referendum to determine independence; all receptions with
heavy summertime QRN (static).

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, July 24, at 1210. Clearly
back on the air today after yesterday's absence; mixing with CNR1 and
CODAR QRM.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap). After
three days of silence, on July 24, heard again; 1143, speech in English
(Bougainville Minister of Health, who today was launching a new medical
ship - "We are here to protect you. We are here to work with you." News
story at
http://bougainville.typepad.com/newdawn/2018/07/240718health-moving-services-new-dawn-fm-news-the-abg-minister-for-health-dennis-lokonai-says-that-the-health-sector-is-alrea.html);
followed by montage of songs, along with the "NBC Bougainville" SA. Nice
to have them back, but still some Voice of Indonesia QRM on frequency.

While NBC Madang (3260), at 1201, with news in English; cut off at 1205*;
about as strong as Bougainville.

CHINA. 3303-USB, Zhoushan Marine Meteorological Radio Station, 1113-1115*;
in Chinese. Last time I heard this station was back in Dec. 2008! Website -
Zhoushan Meteorological Bureau - http://zsqxj.zhoushan.gov.cn/

Google translation:

"Zhoushan Marine Meteorological Radio Station is located in Putuoshan Scenic
Area, Zhoushan City. It was established in November 1994. It is the earliest
professional radio station in the country to provide weather protection for fishing
vessels and other vessels at sea. After sea distance test, the effective listening
distance can reach 500. More than a kilometer. The radio station adopts sea
surface wave and sky wave synchronous transmission mode, and the antenna
is vertically polarized and transmitted; the signal transmission is transmitted by
a 2KW single sideband high power transmitter, which has the characteristics of
large power and long propagation distance. The transmission frequency of the
radio station is 3303KHZ. As long as the vessel operating at sea is equipped
with a short-wave single-sideband receiver, it will be able to listen to the
professional meteorological information released by the Zhoushan Marine
Meteorological Observatory four times a day in any sea area of China and the
three times a day issued by the Central Meteorological Observatory."

6035, FM99 (Voice of Shangri-la) via Yunnan, on July 24, found reception almost
impossible due to the new DRM (CNR1) signal on 6030, which was already
broadcasting today at 1059 tune in. Very unfortunate development! Also 6035 still
with pips jamming (N. Korea?).

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok. On July 23, I commented - "Recently the carrier, on
some days, was fairly good and sounded close to having some audio"; July 24,
definite above threshold level audio; yes, positive Gangtok reception; mostly
subcontinent music/singing 1224-1302 and in Hindi, except for the usual New
Delhi news relay in English 1230-1235, which was clearly // 5040 AIR Jeypore
(fair). So am able to confirm that Ozy Radio is for sure still off the air here.

USA. 7505v, WRNO, on July 24, checking at 1106, heard them back on the air
today, after yesterday's absence; in Chinese; fair.

KASHMIR. 4950, AIR Radio Kashmir, Srinagar (presumed), 1333-1350, July 25.
Audio just above threshold level, whereas normally I only hear a carrier (no audio);
in assume Hindi; nice segments of subcontinent music/singing and also indigenous
chanting/singing; weak. My audio of chanting at http://goo.gl/Rb5A2i . Srinagar
sunset was at 1407 UT, while my sunrise was at 1308 UT. Very respectable
reception for summertime!

LAOS. 6130, Lao National Radio, 1200, July 25. Heard their unique gong/bell that
they ring slowly 7 times (7:00 PM their local time); was almost a minute late starting
(1200:54); weak. Vientiane sunset was at 1146 UT, while my local sunrise was not
till later at 1308 UT.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok. On July 25, for the second consecutive day, heard with
audio above threshold level; 1259-1323; announcer (unable to make out language)
and subcontinent music. My local sunrise was at 1308 UT, while Gangtok sunset was
at 1258 UT, making for some nice grayline reception. Ozy Radio remains silent here.

Feels more like winter here in Monterey (California), than summer. 
Most days just about 15.5ー C and often with fog, which keeps it cool.
Heavy sweater weather!! As I don't like hot weather, am loving it :)

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1300, July 29. Time pips; Beijing time
in Chinese and English ("9 PM"); singing station jingle; mostly in
Vietnamese; // 9820, which was still mostly blocked by CNR2, whereas
5050 had clear and fair reception.

6035, FM99 relay (Voice of Shangri-la), via Yunnan, 1326, July 29. Pop
songs, with the normal FM format; still up against an UNID jamming (N.
Korea?); best in USB, to get away from strong CNR1 DRM signal on
6030.

6155, CNR2 (China Business Radio), 1225-1232, July 29. Good reception;
comedy/variety show "Haiyang Live," in Chinese; program is often heard
on CNR2.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1302-1315, July 29. Yet another edition of the
"Country Roads" Sunday music show; in English; songs - Dolly Parton -
"Jolene," Elton John - "Sacrifice" (C&W?), etc.; local station SA.

KOREA NORTH. 3219.85v // 3920, KCBS Pyongyang, 1221, July 29. Music
program; clearly //, but 3920 is not on the air daily, whereas 3219.85v is
regularly heard.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut). 1105-1203*,
July 29. The normal Sunday format; long segment of preaching in Pidgin and
also religious songs; was the weekend, so no news at ToH; usual summertime
heavy QRN (static).

Noted NBC Bougainville (3325) was silent during the same time period, July 29;
only VOI being heard.

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, 1148:52* cut off, on July 31.

BOUGAINVILLE/INDONESIA. 3325, NBC Bougainville & Voice of
Indonesia, on Aug 1, with a major anomaly. VOI very late starting
and NBC running much longer than normal.

Highlights:

1035-1120: NBC - Non-stop interviews and monologues in Pidgin (no VOI).

1120-1130: NBC - Pop songs (no VOI)

*1208: VOI suddenly started; in Japanese; about one hour later than their
normal time to start; mixing
with NBC till 1257.

1257*: NBC suddenly cut off; about one hour later than normal, leaving VOI
in the clear.

1259: VOI with closing contact info in Japanese; followed by the usual segment
in English.

CHINA. 4900 // 4940, Voice of Strait, 1058+, July 30. In // for about an hour;
both fair.

6035, FM99 (Voice of Shangri-la) via Yunnan, 1220, July 30. Many pop song
(YL singer with the Beatles song "Hey Jude," Idina Menzel - "Let It Go," etc.);
usual FM format; in Chinese; holding up well against the jamming here; best
in USB, due to 6030 DRM.

INDIA. 5040, AIR Jeypore, 1257, July 31. Indigenous music and subcontinent
music; unusually good signal for the summertime. My audio at http://goo.gl/k3phzt

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, 1300, July 30.
Intro to the hour in English; still with "9-5-2-5 kilohertz" frequency; news; 1319,
promo for the VOI 2018 quiz for free trip to Indonesia; "Commentary"; 1325-1328
"Today in History"; not very readable.

MONGOLIA. 7260, Mongolian Radio 3 (presumed), at 1303, Aug 1. Pop songs;
much stronger than QRM from China far underneath; today definite carrier (no
audio) on 4895, which was probably them; nothing on 4830. The 7260 frequency
is normally used daily, whereas 4895 is fairly rare.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Aug 1, from 1136 till past 1300+. Special
coverage (preempted regular programs); soccer/football game between Myanmar
vs South Korea, in the Alpine Cup (four-nation soccer/football tournament played
in Mandalay); TV audio feed; background sound of crowd and loudspeaker; mostly
fair; game not on 5915 (Myanmar Radio) nor 7345 (Thazin Radio) and unable to
hear 6165 (Thazin Radio), due to QRM. My audio at http://goo.gl/JGgWYd .

Full coverage via YouTube at https://goo.gl/AABti2 .

TAIWAN. 9410-USB+carrier, Fu Hsing BS, 1231, July 31. For the second

AUSTRALIA. 4835, Ozy Radio. Regarding my Aug 3 reception, I wrote
to Craig Allen (owner and operator of Ozy Radio), to congratulate him
for getting his station back on the air. His response: "Thanks Ron, Nice
to know I have one listener. Regards, Craig."

(non-log) Aug 5, found 4835 covered by OTH radar from 1040+. Mauno
Ritola noted in WRTH Facebook: "Here in Finland a buzzing carrier
blocking the frequency at 1430." To which I responded: "Back in May &
June, AIR Gangtok (4835) was clearly having transmitter problems,
producing a strong humming audio ("buzzing") on a daily basis. On
August 4, after 1230+ UTC, it seemed to me the same humming sound
had returned again, so perhaps Gangtok's problems returned?" and
Mauno clarified: "Hi Ron, yes, also AIR Gangtok has a similar buzz with
+/-50Hz side carriers, but it signed off at 1658 and this stronger buzz still
continues. I think it may be somewhere in Russia." Interesting development.

August 4, "Waltzing Matilda" theme music of Ozy Radio, heard at 1206, after
the news.

Station 4KZ, on 5055, from 0945+, Aug 5. Pop songs (Bobby McFerrin -
"Don't Worry Be Happy," also with seven minutes of Richard Harris -
"MacArthur Park," which I had not heard in a long time; nice!).

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, 1058, Aug 4.
Unusual propagation, with VOI many times stronger than very weak NBC
Bougainville; contact info in English; into Chinese; later at 1145 found both
mixing together about equal strength. Have yet to hear any "Exotic Indonesia"
programs, as noted via VOI in past years.

7289.92, Pro 1 RRI Nabire, 0742 till off around 0940 or thereabout, Aug 6
(Monday). Seems weekdays they are on the air longer (one hour?) than
weekends. Audio - http://goo.gl/rSSP6c ; with one minute of singing and
one minute of reciting from the Qur'an, along with summertime QRN/static.

Highlights:

0742-0800: Young children singing various songs; non-stop.

0800-0817: ID 撤rograma Satu, Radio Republik Indonesia Nabire・(seems
they never give the "R-R-I" abbreviation in their IDs, as Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya
did before VOI took over 3325), followed by the news. Ending news with patriotic
song 釘agimu Negeri,・which I find somewhat strange. In past years the RRI
stations in August normally played 泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・all month long, after
the news, instead of 釘agimu Negeri,・due to their Independence Day being this
month. Are they waiting till the 17th to play it?

0817-0900: Middle Eastern type music/singing.

0900-0910: Reciting from the Qur'an.

Thanks very much to Dave Valko for the alert about the abbreviated weekend
schedule for RRI Nabire. I tuned in Aug 4 (Sat.), at 0939+ and found them off
the air; Aug 5 (Sun.), checking 0848+, with the same results. Dave indicates
on Aug 5, he did heard RRI at 0824, but it was gone when recheck at 0846,
which is what I also noted a few minutes later.

Safe to say their cut off time varies a great deal.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1221, Aug 5. Their usual Sunday
religious (Christian) songs, with soloists; is their normal format. My 5 1/2 minute
audio at http://goo.gl/BGhsFW . Daily I hear this like a local station and is never
jammed by N. Korea!

6045.0, Voice of Freedom, *0858, Aug 5. Started with music; "Frontier" by Mr.
Yang Bang-ean (Japanese name: Liang Kunihiko); YouTube of "Frontier" at
https://youtu.be/vDd38LEu48Y ; singing station ID; time pips. My audio at
http://goo.gl/6dVAsw .

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, from 1152+, on Aug 5. Coverage of the
Alpine Cup soccer/football match; Myanmar vs Thailand; preempted regular
programs; TV audio feed; background sound of crowd and loudspeaker; fair
reception.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut),1207*
cut off, on Aug 5, after the usual Sunday religious programs.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok. See AUSTRALIA.

TAIWAN. 9410-USB+carrier, Fu Hsing BS, at 0940, on Aug 6 and at 1239,

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap),

relay via Sound of Hope, on Aug 7. Tuned in to hear IS at 0856, during

KOREA SOUTH. back on alternate frequency 5920.0 (stable), Voice of
Freedom, ex: 6045, on Aug 9. Good reception and not jammed (ex: 6045
still with heavy N. Korea jamming). Thanks again to Amano-san for his
excellent feedback as to the names of these various programs.

Highlights:

1000: "Bodo gwangjang" ("News plaza"). My audio at http://goo.gl/EcBP7G

6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, at 1009, Aug 8. Still with N. Korea
jamming, but somewhat readable; three SAs; first by native speaker of
English ("Now you are listening to KBS, Pops Freedom"), second in
Korean ("Yeoreobuneun jigeum, Daehanminguk Seoul-e seo bonaedeurineun
Pops Freedom eul mutgogyesip nida." English translation: "Now, you are
listening to Pops Freedom from Seoul, South Korea") and third again in
English, this time by the program's host Kwak Young il ("Now you are
listening to KBS, Pops Freedom"); mostly pop songs (Icona Pop - "I Love It -
I Don't Care," etc.); at 1020 the usual intro to "Everyday English"
("Yeongeodaejang Gwag-Yeong il gwa hamkkehaneun KBS Hanminjok
bangsong, Pops Freedom!" English translation "Together with English

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ. Re: Glenn's log:

"5055, August 8 at 1146, JBA carrier from presumed 4KZ Queensland,
despite storm noise level and switch to indoor longwire for safety. During
July, Ron Howard had noted it cutting off the air by a timer, a few seconds
earlier from one day to the next, reaching 1148:52* by July 31, so I am
expecting carrier to vanish sometime during the 1148 or maybe 1147 minute
--- but it does not! I am about to tire of listening to its JBA tone with BFO on
5054, when finally it stops at approx. 1157:11.5*, wouldn`t you know it, when
I have glanced away from my watch. Perhaps Ron can confirm the new timing. . .
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)."

Aug 17, thanks to Glenn's observations, able to confirm the change in the cut
off time for 4KZ, which was 1156:20* today, so definitely the timer was changed
from when I last heard 4KZ in July and is still continuing to daily cut off earlier
each day.

[non-log] 4835, Ozy Radio, on Aug 17, at 1203, heard humming/buzzing sound,
either from faulty AIR Gangtok (Sikkim) transmitter or, as Mauno Ritola
commented recently in WRTH Facebook about 4835: "Hi Ron, yes, also AIR
Gangtok has a similar buzz with +/-50Hz side carriers, but it signed off at
1658 and this stronger buzz still continues. I think it may be somewhere in
Russia" and also "There is another buzzer [4835] in Eastern Europe, though
not a problem in the target area," or am I hearing a combination of the two?
Craig Allen (owner and operator of Ozy Radio) commented: "I have no
buzz just perfect processed audio," but I'm unable today to make out Ozy
Radio under the humming/buzzing.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1000-1109,
Aug 17. News in English; drums; news in Pidgin; 1021 music segment with DJ
in Pidgin, giving phone number; 1031 interview; noted at 1047 with Voice of
Indonesia QRM (in English) underneath NBC; by 1100 badly mixing together.

CHINA. 6035, FM99 via Yunnan, at 1200, on Aug 14. Time pips; Beijing time
check; station singing jingle (as confirmed via their on-line audio streaming);
normal FM format; still heard with UNID jamming.

7345-USB, V26, at 0945-0952*, Aug 17. Numbers given in Chinese. My audio
at http://goo.gl/YoRXjU .

INDONESIA. 7289.92, Pro 1 RRI Nabire (tentative), 0902, Aug 17 (Independence
Day). Today only hearing a carrier; well below threshold level; was gone by 1013;
the poorest reception I have had so far.

RRI Nabire, on Aug 14, a disappointing no-show (0839+). Aug 13, also not heard
from 0828+.

Andy Robins had positive reception, via Bill Whitacre's temporary remote receiver,
at "Sans Souci" near Florence, Oregon, on Aug 12, from 0750+. While Dave Valko
on Aug 15, noted "It's now 1117, the sun is shining here, and 7289.92 RRI Nabire
is still showing up prominently on the Perseus display. I'm almost certain this is the
latest I've ever noticed it on the air" and he says RRI went off close to 1131. He of
course noted the strong CNR1 signal on 7290.

Clearly this station is very erratic and certainly the cut off time varies a great deal.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920.0, Voice of Freedom, 1140, Aug 14 (Tuesday - weekday
schedule). Good reception, with "Aneun geos-i him-ida" ("Knowing is power")
program; clear of any N. Korea jamming, which was still up on ex: 6045. My
audio at http://goo.gl/jiogyH . Aug 17 also found VOF still clear of jamming
and usual very good reception.

MONGOLIA. 7260, Mongolian Radio 3 (presumed), 1035, Aug 14. Segment
with on-air phone conversations; 1059 into pop music segment (Glenn Medeiros -
"Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You," etc.); stronger than China
underneath, which was mostly announcers talking in Chinese; heard here
daily and not difficult to tell them apart; nothing today on rare 4830 nor 4895.

Re: China - Voice of Strait - "Focus on China" program with new schedule? Ron Howard - Aug 18, 2018 20:17 UTC No.3410
CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, at 0941, on Aug 18. Tuned into the Saturday 
only "Focus on China" program already in progress; in English; formerly was
heard 1500-1530 (Sat.); seemed to be an audio feed from a documentary
about calligraphy; 0951 closing announcement, followed by EZL song;
0955 into Chinese.

Not sure if today was an anomaly or an actual schedule change? In summertime
I'm unable to check 1500+, as that is too far past my local sunrise, but at 0941,
I had almost semi-readable reception. At 0951 had positive program SA for FOC.
Interesting development, but needs more Saturday monitoring!
Website, in Chinese - http://www.vos.com.cn/ .

VOS, on 4940, signs on now around 0900, while VOS on 4900 doesn't start till
later (maybe about 0945?).

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, on Aug 21, from 1005+; wind conditions;
ads; promo for joining Australian Radio DX Club and gave John
Wright's email address; pop songs (Andy Gibb - "I Just Want to
Be Your Everything," the Beatles - "Got To Get You Into My Life,"
Minnie Riperton - "Lovin' You," etc.); very respectable signal even
with heavy QRN (static). The start of the DX season?

4KZ, on Aug 20, with cut off at 1156:04.7*. From 0950+, heard pop
songs; the Beatles - "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," the Lovin' Spoonful -
"Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind," the Doors - "Light
My Fire," the Seekers (Australian group) - "A World Of Our Own,"
etc."; better than the norm, but still with heavy QRN (static).

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, 1235-1242, Aug 20.
The Monday only SAARC (The South Asian Association for Regional
Cooperation) news bulletin in English; 鄭ssalamu alaikum. This is
Bangladesh Betar・ item - "India's armed services are stepping up
efforts to rescue thousands of people stranded by flooding in southern
Kerala state that has killed 324 people. Officials said hundreds of troops,
and dozens of boats and helicopters are helping to evacuate people.
Many people are still believed to be trapped on rooftops of flooded
homes. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that . . . " - Bangladesh
President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina sent
condolences on the death of former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari
Vajpayee - etc.; a very good day here, as well above the norm;
semi-readable due to CNR1 QRM; "SAARC" is pronounced as a
word and not spelled out; 1242 into Bangla. My audio at

BOUGAINVILLE/PNG. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap)
// 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 0832-0909, Aug 20. In
English the whole time; heavy QRN (static).

CHINA. 6035, FM99 relay via Yunnan, on Aug 21, at 1120; finally clear
of the UNID jamming that had recently been here. The jamming probably
was a spur from the 6045 N. Korea jamming against Voice of Freedom.
I conclude this, due to today being the first day that 6045 was free of
jamming (moved down to 5920).

KOREA SOUTH. 5920.0, Voice of Freedom, on Aug 21, at 1120; the first
day that N. Korean jamming is here; jamming finally moved away from ex:
6045.

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio, 1159-1200, Aug 20. Indigenous music

Was it in parallel with 9730 kHz? Yesterday at 1300 I think it was in // with 729 kHz, so Yangon prgr? Or is Yangon prgr. stopped? 

Re: MYANMAR : MRTV Myanmar Radio XYZ - Jan 11, 2018 10:23 UTC No.2923
Thanks to MAUNO ! 

Yes, maybe parallel with 729kHz. I do not know whether it is still
called "Yangon service" or not.

7200kHz not parallel with 9730kHz. 9730 kHz is a program of another
line of Burmese main subject. 7200 kHz are programs of minority
ethnic languages at night.

However, programs before 0930UTC have not been confirmed.

Maybe....

Yes Hiroyuki, now I could get to Uwe Volk's Perseus in Thailand and 7200 kHz 
is in parallel with 729 kHz and both 5985 and 5915 kHz. So this must be
Yangon prgr. and 5985 kHz is National and 5915 Minorities.

Thank you so much for solving a mystery that I had from last

on 7196.25, but never was able to pull in any audio. Finally
gave up on it, as it was just too weak to tell anything about it.

Now I know it must have been the VOV-1 spur from 7210.

In the past (as recently as June of this year) I often heard,
with fairly good audio, Voice of Vietnam-1 spurs on both
5967.0 & 5983.0, from their 5975 frequency, but have not
heard those for many months now. Interesting to now find
