AUSTRALIA[non-logs]. On March 2:

5055 (4KZ), 5045 (Ozy Radio) and 4835 (future Ozy Radio) not heard
at all at 1038, till past 1248. AIR Gangtok also again silent on 4835.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1040-1201*, March 2.
Segments with speeches (in Parliment?) in Pidgin and English; also
segments with usual DJ in Pidgin playing mostly pop songs in English;
1100 no news; 1200 normal PNG bird call and into the NBC News in
English; suddenly cut off.

NBC Madang (3260) not broadcasting March 2, at the same time period.

CHINA. 6115 & 9505, Voice of Strait. March 2, another day of the
change in their schedule; these frequencies noted up till about 1300,
when they switched to 4900 & 4940.

KOREA SOUTH. 7275, KBS World Radio. Yesterdays QRM from UNID
Chinese station was in fact CNR1. March 2, confirmed CNR1 // 6125. At
*1255 the start of the KBS IS and ID, mixing equally with CNR1. So with
two major stations here, there is no possibility of my hearing the recently
reported PBS Guizhou, which has been heard by Japanese DXers about
0300 UT, when there is no CNR1.

KBS on 6015 kHz. - Ron-san's audio on Feb 27. Amano - Mar 04, 2018 13:09 UTC No.3102
Hello! Hiroyuki and Ron-san.

I heard the audio of KBS Hanminjok Bangsong
that Ron-san recorded on Feb 27 at 1218.

- - - - - Ron-san's log:

http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:3095

6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on Feb 27, at 1210, heard with
about a half an hour with no N. Korea jamming; news in Korean;
nice "KBS News" SAs in English after each news item; sound bites
in English; good reception. My audio at http://goo.gl/VUDaxm .

- - - - -

Nice catch, Ron-san!

This program is "KBS News 9".
At this time, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong is relaying KBS-1 TV.
I confirmed the same sound as Ron-san's audio on Youtube below!

ANDAMAN & NICOBAR ISLANDS. 4760, AIR Port Blair (presumed
not to be AIR Leh [Kashmir]). On March 1, reported above average
reception here; now on March 3, even better reception! Is this just
the result of improved Indian propagation? Heard above threshold
level as early as 1128; some ads and a lot of subcontinent music/
singing; was about as strong as AIR Shillong (4970) and AIR Jeypore
(5040), which is extremely rare; heard past 1300+. QRM as usual
from strong CODAR.

Jim Young in Southern Calif. was also hearing them at the same time
on March 3 - "Port Blair had strong signal and fair audio" (Thanks go
to Jim for his feedback!).

AUSTRALIA[and UNID]. March 4 heard:

5055 (4KZ), from 1341 till cut off at 1401*; ad; pop songs (The Mamas
& The Papas - "Monday Monday," etc.); cut off during the news; weak;
a full broadcasting day; apparently with no lightning around.

5045 (Ozy Radio), not heard, nor was anything on 4835 (no AIR
Gangtok).

March 3, both Jim Young and I noted a definite carrier (UNID) on 4835,
with extremely weak audio; couldn't pull in any details, so unable to
confirm if it was AIR Gangtok having transmitter problems, but whoever
it was went off the air at 1459*; this on a day with exceptional Indian
propagation. March 4, nothing at all heard on 4835, from 1210+. Jim
also noted March 4, at 0100, there was no sign on from AIR Gangtok.

INDIA. new frequency 7554.80, AIR via Delhi-Kingsway, ex: 7555.5v,
1314, March 4. Sounded like Tibetan indigenous music; 1315-1325 dead
air (only carrier on); 1325-1330 EZL music (not AIR IS); 1330 into assume
listed Napali and with subcontinent music/singing. Signal strength infinitely
stronger than recently heard on ex: 7555.5v. Is this therefor a different
Kingsway transmitter here now?

Perhaps Wolfie can provide a more accurate measurement? (Thanks Wolfie!).

Re: Voice of Freedom on 5919.65 kHz. Ron Howard - Mar 05, 2018 20:45 UTC No.3105
KOREA SOUTH. new frequency 5919.65, Voice of Freedom, ex: 6045.0, 
on March 5. Strong open carrier heard at 1540; start of easy-listening-
music at 1552; some distorted audio; choral anthem followed by SA and
station singing jingle; 1600 pips; program in Korean with mentions of
Olympics; no jamming; ex: 6045, now a clear frequency. In the past was
always on 5920.0, so a different transmitter now?

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1136-1203*, March 6.
DJ in Pidgin playing pop hit songs by Tina Turner, Cher, Dr. Hook,
etc.; 1200 normal PNG bird call and into the NBC News in English;
suddenly cut off.

NBC Madang (3260) not broadcasting March 6, at the same time
period.

INDIA. 7555.69v, AIR via Delhi-Kingsway, 1209-1227, March 6.
Transmitter problem; 1209 strong carrier; 1225 audio suddenly
started (no sign on at 1215 and no AIR IS at 1213); was unable
to keep a steady audio; cut in and out. On March 4 was on 7554.80v.
My audio at http://goo.gl/PuWJnF . Since March 4, with much stronger
signal than formerly heard.

Wolfie has already posted this - "INDIA 7555.690 kHz measured on
tune-in at 1245 UT on March 6, seemingly parked AIR transmitter on
that channel. CARRIER ONLY. Seemingly:

7555 100 Delhi Khampur 1215-1330 UT Tibetan(China), 1330-1430 UT

KOREA SOUTH. 5919.22v, Voice of Freedom, 1107, March 6.
Transmitter problem that started yesterday and continued today.
Steadily drifting down in frequency; at 1237 seemed about 5919.12v;
strong signal and no jamming. Yesterday on 5919.65.

Hello! Ron-san and Hiroyuki.

Thank you for frequency change information of VOF.
I heard the following Ron-san's audio.

> http://goo.gl/axpjcH
This is the beginning part of nighttime broadcasting in Korea time.
The last part of the Korean National Anthem, the start announcement,
the FM frequency announcement, the broadcast schedule,
and VOF SJ are clearly recorded.
The SW frequency is not announced.

** VOF FM frequency
101.7 (peak-il chong chil)
103.1 (peak-sam chong il)
107.3 (peak-chil chong sam) MHz

** VOF broadcast schedule
Yagan Bangsong 0100-0500KST (1600-2000UTC)
Ojeon Bangsong 0600-1100KST (2100-0200UTC)
Ohu Bangsong 1200-1700KST (0300-0800UTC)
Jeonyeog bangsong 1800-0000KST (0900-1500UTC)

Yagan = Nighttime
Ojeon = Morning
Ohu = Afternoon
Jeonyeog = Evening

After 1600 pips, the program "Bodo gwangjang" ("News plaza") starts.

After frequency change, I also received the VOF.

-------- Amano's log:

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1900-2006*, on March 6.
The frequency is shifted slightly downward.
I don't know if it changed to different transmitter.
North Korean pip jamming was heard until 1900, but then I could
not hear it.
1939-, 1988 Seoul Olympic theme song "Hand In Hand" played in
"Haengboghan Daehanmingug" program.
Including the program ending,
my 02:30 audio at http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/img/3108.mp3

Thanks again for your very helpful translation of my most recent VOF audio clip.
Your understanding of Korean is excellent and I am most fortunate that you take

March 7 - Voice of Freedom continues their downward spiral. Thanks to
input from Dave Valko (USA), who measured VOF at 1053, on 5918.91v, and
at 1103, as 5918.902v. My monitoring from 1117 to 1216 had them about
5918.91v, down to 5918.76v.

Re: Voice of Freedom on 5919.65 kHz. Ron Howard - Mar 07, 2018 18:25 UTC No.3111
After monitoring VOF's drifting downward frequency for several days, have 
contacted Jamie (via his Facebook page), who in 2014 constructed the
transmitters for VOF. Wanted to bring him up-to-date about the drifting
frequency on SW. Here is his quick response:

Jamie LaBadia "Hi Ron,....thank you so much for the update! I wonder
why the drift? The original exciter is a commercial D.D.S. I have been
home for a few weeks now,...but getting ready to head out again,....
either to Nashville,....or back to Indiana. Not totally sure yet. I'll have
to contact Korea and see what is up with the transmitters. Hard to
imagine both of the transmitters would become a "drift-o-matic." I'll
try to bring them up on one of the S.D.R.s in the area. For now,.....
I'm hunkering down for another blizzard here in the Catskills."

Re: Taiwan - Fu Hsing BS Ron Howard - Mar 08, 2018 14:00 UTC No.3112
TAIWAN. 9774.0, Fu Hsing BS (presumed), 1107, March 8. In 
Chinese and with some music; weak signal and best in LSB, but
definitely here; still on at 1154; hovering at threshold level
audio.

During my daily monitoring, this has not been heard by me for a
long time now, so definitely is a rare catch for me!

BTW - Their // 9410 was blocked by strong CNR5 (// 5925), so
unable to confirm //.

Re: Taiwan - Fu Hsing BS Ron Howard - Mar 09, 2018 18:25 UTC No.3113

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(15) Ron Howard - Mar 10, 2018 04:39 UTC No.3115
AUSTRALIA[and non-log]. 5055, 4KZ, heard on March 8 & 9;
reception is now below threshold level audio, about 1130+; back
in Dec/Jan was doing much better. Still not on full power?

5045, Ozy Radio, not heard March 8 & 9, nor was anyone on 4835,
so AIR Gangtok is again silent, just as Glenn reported on the 8th.

INDIA. 7555.69, AIR via Delhi-Kingsway, 1212, March 9. Already
on with carrier; 1213 AIR IS (normal audio); 1215 start of distorted
audio; unreadable; at 1255 heard with much better audio. Their
recently varying frequencies seem to have settled onto this
frequency, at least for the time being.

KOREA SOUTH. Voice of Freedom. Thanks to Wolfie for his
continued monitoring, which also corresponds to my daily checking
of VOF:

5918.351 kHz measured on monitoring at 1111 UT on March 9, on
remote Perseus SDR unit in Seoul Korea, S=9+10dB signal strength.
Hwaseong bcast transmission.

5918.368 kHz measured on monitoring at 2111 UT on March 8, on
remote Perseus SDR unit in Seoul Korea, S=9+10dB signal strength.
Hwaseong bcast transmission.

5918.388 kHz measured on monitoring at 1630 UT on March 8, on
remote Perseus SDR unit in Tokyo Japan, S=9+10dB signal strength.
73 wolfie (df5sx), via dxldyg.

TAIWAN[non-log]. 9774.0, Fu Hsing BS, at 1137 & 1240, March 9.
Off the air today, after being heard yesterday. So a one day only
transmission? Will still keep an eye out here for any more activity.

USA[non-log]. 5010, WRMI. After conducting a low powered test here
on March 7, has not been heard again on the 8th nor the 9th; am only
hearing AIR Thiruvananthapuram. Later this month, when WRMI starts
up with full power, will probably be impossible to hear India, at least here
on the west coast of USA.

Re: Voice of Freedom causing QRM now for China & Myanmar on 5915 kHz. Ron Howard - Mar 10, 2018 14:04 UTC No.3116
- - - - - -  posted to WOR iog:

Voice of Freedom, due to their daily slow downward spiral in frequency, is
now actively causing QRM for both China (CRI) and Myanmar (Myanmar
Radio), both on 5915. If VOF continues their downward trend, the QRM
will only get stronger. Here in California the VOF signal is daily strong,
with good reception, even with the light N. Korean jamming that is also
now present.

Re: Bhutan BBS Ron Howard - Mar 11, 2018 15:41 UTC No.3118
BHUTAN/CHINA. 6035, BBS & PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la).
On March 11, with the normal Sunday programs for BBS, but with
greatly extended broadcast (1338*); BBS not heard recently.

Highlights:

1123-1130 BBS announcers in English; mixing with PBS Yunnan,
in Chinese.

1131 Usual SA in English & Chinese; "S W liu(6) ling(0) san(3) wu(5).
Yunnan Radio and Television International, the Voice Shangri-la."

1130-1200 BBS playing pop songs in English; DJ in English; mixing
with PBS Yunnan in Chinese.

1201 PBS Yunnan started the usual loop of non-stop EZL instrumental
music, till cut off at 1213*.

1200 BBS announcer in vernacular; briefly played indigenous instrumental
music at 1216 & 1218; in the clear after 1213.

1230-1255 The normal Sunday children's call-in show (cute!), with kids briefly
chatting and then singing solo (no musical accompaniment).

1255-1300 Indigenous music/chanting/singing.

1300+ Announcer in vernacular.

1330 till suddenly off at 1338* - Call-in show for adults, with them briefly
chatting and then singing solo (no musical accompaniment).

Poor reception, with moderate to heavy adjacent QRM. Very nice to catch
this unusually long broadcast. Audio of solo singing at http://goo.gl/vvGGtZ

Re: R. Sakha reactivated their second SW frequency - 7295 kHz. Ron Howard - Mar 12, 2018 15:19 UTC No.3120
RUSSIA. 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1119-1200, March 12.
Thanks to Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), who reported hearing them
on March 2, at 0900. Have been monitoring this frequency since then,
but today is the first time to hear them; moderate adjacent QRM;
clearly // 7345, underneath a much stronger CNR1; music show;
1151-1155 usual series of commercial announcements; 1200 time pips;
they have definitely dropped using the nice Jew's harp (khomus) IS
that they formerly always played at the ToH. I certainly miss hearing
this unique instrument!

Nippon no Kaze signed on 7295, at 1300, in Korean, which blocked Russia
and caused a mess with the two mixing together, but R. Sakha went off the
air sometime after 1300, so when Furusato no Kaze ("Wind of Hometown")
started at 1330, on 7295, R. Sakha had already signed off.

Very nice to have a second frequency to listen to R. Sakha. Needs more
monitoring to determine if this frequency will be used regularly now.

March 8; stronger reception today and clearly // 9410, even with the usual
CNR5 QRM, so certainly is Taiwan on their usual unique frequency; in
Chinese and EZL songs. Would be very nice if they started to regularly
use this frequency again!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1003-1120 , March 13.
Reception well above the norm; 1003-1015 "regional news" in Pidgin
(voting results, etc.); 1020-1033 interview in English with Aussie OM,
talking about "video" and "documentary"; good number of SAs ("NBC
Bougainville, number one"); pop Pacific Islands music, as well as
western pop (Tina Turner, etc.). Entertaining reception!

KOREA SOUTH. Voice of Freedom, on March 13, no longer on
5918.22v; at 1127 noted a strong carrier on 6045.0, which I suspect
was VOF returning to their former frequency, but with no audio; N.
Korea jamming was also present on 6045.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, Maus Blong Garamut
(indigenous drums), 1134-1203*, March 13. Just as with Bougainville,
this station was also well above the norm; DJ in Pidgin and gave phone
numbers; segment started and ended with garamut (indigenous drums);
promo and public service announcement in English (info on surviving
a landslide, etc.); DJ in Pidgin playing pop Pacific Islands music; after
1201, in English (must be a Port Moresby audio feed); several promos
for "NBC Radio"; cut off 1203*. Another entertaining reception!

RUSSIA. 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0958, March 13. Traditional
indigenous singing, along with Jew's harp (khomus) music (very nice!);
// 7345 (underneath CNR1); in the clear till 1000, when CRI (7290) signed
on with very strong signal.

ANGOLA. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola, 0311, March 14. Decent reception 
with frequent clear SAs; earlier (about 0200) had het from AIR Radio Kashmir,
Srinagar on 4950.0.

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, 1105-1143, March 15. Finally a day with above threshold
level audio; pop hit songs by Queen, Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, etc. 1200-1205
news with many sound bites, but not quite readable; as usual, best in USB, due to
China QRM from 5050.

[non-log] 5045, Ozy Radio, still silent through March 15, at a quick 1111 check, while
4835 was covered by OTH radar.

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, RNGE, R. Bata, 0525 (justed missed the sign on), March 14.
Better than normal reception, as audio was slightly above threshold level; repetitive
African singing; by 0540 was unusable.

KOREA SOUTH. 5917.75v, Voice of Freedom, on March 15, after a few days off the air
here, again noted with very slow downward drifting; even though transmitter is drifting, excellent
signal strength and good reception at 1059; no jamming at all, as noted on my audio at
http://goo.gl/8VQYxV , but later by 1300 there was light jamming underneath and very
light hint of QRM from CRI on 5915. Thanks very much to Wolfie, who is also daily
monitoring this drifter, who reported earlier today:

"After a switch-off break on March 13 and 14, noted back on March 15. 'Voice of Freedom'
- Today down now on 5917.769 kHz measured on monitoring at 0530 UT on March 15,
on remote Perseus SDR unit in Seoul SoKorea, S=9+10dB signal strength. Hwaseong bcast
transmission. But suffered by severe jamming, both types, of scratching jammer, as wells as
ditter jamming signals too, broadband up to 5934 kHz."

PHILIPPINES. 17700, R. Pilipinas, 0210, March 14. Segment “From the presidential palace Manila, Dateline
Malacañang”; news from the "PBS News Center"; "Provincial Report" with regional news (joint maritime security
engagement activities conducted by Philippine Navy [units from Mindanao] and the Royal Australian Navy, etc.);
"DFA Online, news and events from different Philippine embassies and consulates around the world," about
overseas Filipino workers. Only this frequency was very readable, with 15640 // 17820 both poor and unreadable

RUSSIA. 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0350, March 14. Infinitely stronger than much weaker // 7345; series
of commercial announcements; ballad; time pips (again with no IS); 0422 start of a long interview; 0500* two time
pips and off the air. My audio at http://goo.gl/PnVbgx .

[non-log] 7295. What happened here? Found them already silent on March 15, from 1146+.

BOUGAINVILLE/INDONESIA. 3325, NBC Bougainville & Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1038-1112 & 1143-1230, March 17. Both stations taking turns fading up and down; at times about equal strength; 1100 RRI suddenly doing better with local SA and local news, followed as usual at 1108 with full rendition of patriotic song "Bagimu Negeri," which ended the news; NBC cut off at 1159*, leaving RRI in the clear; 1201 the normal Jakarta audio feed/relay of the news; 1222 very surprised to hear only about 20 seconds of the patriotic song "Bagimu Negeri" before they cut away for a series of commercial announcements (this is a new and never before heard format!), normally they play the full, long rendition of "Bagimu Negeri"; 1225 Barbra Streisand singing "The Way We
Were"; a number of "Programa Satu RRI Palangkaraya" SAs.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1124-1136; March 17. In Chinese; pop hit song by 10CC, with "I'm Not in Love"; 1132 English SA - "Yunnan Radio and Television International, the Voice Shangri-la." Bhutan (BBS) clearly not broadcasting today
at this time.

KOREA NORTH[non-logs]. March 17, at 1235, noted many S. Korea frequencies clear of jamming; 3910, 3930, 3985, 5995, 6015, 6135 (a clear frequency with no station here), 6250, (mixing of both Echo of Unification & Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope), 6350, etc.;
about 1253 jamming started up again; this is not uncommon now to find these free of jamming segments. The only exception that I found was the jamming of the Voice of Freedom (5917.56v) did not stop at any time.

BTW - March 17: for a long time now 3250 has been silent. Aoki lists with "x" ("off the air").

KOREA SOUTH. Voice of Freedom, on March 17, continuing their slow downward spiral; today about 5917.56v, at 1254, with heavy jamming, but still doing alright. Now definitely QRMing CRI on 5915. Thanks to Wolfie for his ongoing monitoring here.

6350, Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope, on March 17, at 1240; doing very well with N. Korea jamming being silent; 1246 clear "V O H" SA. My audio http://goo.gl/VC8bVr .

RUSSIA. 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. A change in scheduling! Recently observed no longer broadcasting 1000+, whereas they are still on the air here till 0500* (noted March 16); this frequency is very much stronger than // 7345.

AUSTRALIA[non-log]. 5045, 5055 & 4835, on March 18, all covered by strong OTH radar; 1120 through to last check at 1322; no possibility of any reception, if they were there.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1039, March 18 (Sunday). In Pidgin; all religious programming; 1102 the usual "NBC Bougainville" promo with musical montage; 1102+ mostly non-stop religious songs; cut off before 1200; at times mixing with Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, but NBC stronger than yesterday's reception.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), noted 1201*, on March 18; went off just as they started their usual musical loop; poor; Bhutan (BBS) again not on the air at this time.

6115 // 9505, Voice of Strait, during a brief check at 1142, on March 18; both with fair reception; only // for about an hour.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, March 18, with the usual Sunday program "Country Roads"; 1235-1315; playing C&W songs (Tom Jones, Dolly Parton, etc.); must have been a substitute DJ, as normally it's hosted by a young woman with a very pleasant sounding
voice, instead of today's male DJ; several local "The North Eastern Service of All India Radio broadcasting from Shillong" SAs; at times fair. This show has been carried now for many years.

KOREA SOUTH. 5857.5, HLL2 Seoul, 1009-1012, March 18. In English with weather conditions at different observatories around Asia (Shanghai, Hong Kong, etc.); providing wind direction, wind speed in meters per second, air pressure in hectopascals and temperature in Celsius; audio better than normally heard (clearer).

Was very interested to note 1209-1212 they gave different weather info; for locations in Korea(?) for "this afternoon," "tomorrow afternoon" and "day after tomorrow"; first time I have actually observed they don't repeat the same info every hour.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, Maus Blong Garamut, 1017-1033, March 18. As usual on Sunday, religious preaching and some religious songs; extremely early closing, as noted off the air at a 1122 check and subsequent checking was still silent.

RUSSIA[non-log]. 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk. A change in scheduling! Again on March 18, found them off the air 1014+ and also no 7345 heard underneath CNR1, so they have dropped this time period.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la). New happenings here! During my daily monitoring had often noted a very consistent format. Either cutting off at 1200* or if running somewhat past that, they always started the same musical loop (filler music) at 1201, until they turned off the transmitter. Now am hearing a very different format.

March 20 - No musical loop at 1201, but announcers, in Chinese, continued on till cut off at 1206*.

March 21 - No musical loop at 1201; program format not the usual PBS format, instead many short segments, with what sounded like a number of commercial announcements; format somewhat resembled a commercial station; all in Chinese; played some songs;
still on the air 1305+, long past their normal cut off time.

MADAGASCAR. 6135.0, Radio Madagasikara (presumed). Have been
following with interest Glenn Hauser's UNID on WOR iog, but until today
(March 22) have been of no help to him due to my daily having strong
N. Korea white noise jamming, which today was off the air. Tuned in at
1325 to hear very faint audio (unusable); signal slowly improved to the
level that the language indeed sounded correct to be them. At 1349
station went off the air for a bit, but noted again at 1352; some
commercial announcements; 1357 instrumental "Bridge Over Trouble
Water"; "presumed," as I heard no specific station SA, but am very
confident was them. Was wonderful to hear this again, as it has been
many years since I last heard them on this frequency! My audio at

March 22 - Again with no musical loop at 1201 UTC; again with greatly extended 
schedule; in Chinese; same format as reported yesterday; still on the air at my last
check of 1351+.

While it is of interest that PBS Yunnan is now on the air much longer than before,
is bad news for Bhutan/BBS (6035) reception. Now whenever they broadcast after
1200+, looks as if they will encounter significant China QRM that was never there
in the past at that time.

Making BBS even more of a challenge now!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 0958, March 25 (Sunday). 
Mostly religious preaching and a lot of religious songs, except for the
NBC news 1001-1011, in English; cut off at 1058* (an unusual time for
them to go off the air!); no RRI Palangkaraya QRM noted, but after NBC
left the air, was able to hear a weak RRI signal. NBC broadcasting here
again after being silent yesterday. Today also had NBC Madang (3260)
on the air with Sunday religious programs.

CHINA[non-log]. 9410, CNR5, 1143, March 25. Surprised to find no station
here; normally CNR5 would have fair reception and be // 5925, but not today;
also not present was the rarer Taiwan station - Fu Hsing BS. Perhaps just a
CNR5 anomaly today?

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1237, March 25. The Sunday "Country Roads"
show; this week the usual YL DJ was back again, after last week's substitute
OM DJ; Kenny Rogers "Lady," etc.; almost fair.

KOREA SOUTH. 5917.6, Voice of Freedom, 0957, March 25. Strong signal
with the usual light jamming; still heard at my last check at 1315, again with
fair reception and jamming. As Wolfie has been reporting, they finally stopped
drifting downward and seem to have settled on this frequency, which still
causes QRM for 5915.

6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, at 1012, March 21. Mostly in Korean; series
of three nice SAs; first by native speaker of English, second in Korean and third
in English by the host of the program (Kwak Young Il) - "Now you are listening
to KBS, Pop's Freedom"; pop songs (100 Proof Aged In Soul "Somebody's Been
Sleeping," etc.); "KBS" & "Pop's Freedom" IDs, then into "Everyday English";
"Tell your parents we miss them so," "What do you miss the most?", "My mother's
home cooking," etc.; fairly readable due to the normal strong N. Korea white noise
jamming not being on at this time, instead heard with a pulsating noise. Website in
Korean - http://goo.gl/ihRfFe .

TAIWAN. 6230, Sound of Hope, 1026, March 25. Recently has been doing well
here; in Chinese with very long monologue that went on for hours (very unusual!);
still being heard at 1313; listened in LSB, to get away from VMW (Australia Weather
West) in USB. Very rare that CNR1 jams SOH here, but does happen occasionally.

preaching; SA; religious songs.

CHINA. 6572-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station), on March 26,
at 1150. Numbers in Chinese; fair.

[non-log] 9410, CNR5, 1140, 1240 & 1325, March 26. Again with no station
at all here. Change in schedule? This is nice, so if Taiwan (Fu Hsing BS)
should again broadcast here, which they intermittently do, they will be in
the clear!

KOREA NORTH[non]. back to former alternate 6040 (ex: 5935), Shiokaze/
Sea Breeze, via Yamata (Japan), at 1316, on March 26. In Japanese; fair-good,
as the N. Korea jamming was still down on ex 5935 (along with Tibet). Also heard
today by Rick Barton (thanks Rick!). Will take N. Korea a few days to note the
change and start jamming 6040.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1217-1229, March 26 (Monday). Today's
edition of "Say It In English" was a repeat program, which was originally
reported by me back in 2017:

"5985, Myanmar Radio, on Sept 20, heard the start of the Wednesday edition

Craig's first day here; thanks to Fred Vos's timely alert in WOR iog,
started monitoring at 1009 UTC, only to find strong OTH radar (4810-
4885); OTHR still there at 1219; a check at 1236 had OTHR gone, but
seemed like a utility on the high side of 4835, blocked any reception;
by 1240 no longer with any QRM; weak Ozy signal fading in and out
(unusable); heard mostly music and occasional announcer (still unusable);
luckily my local sunrise today was at 1359 UTC, so I was able to catch a
positive "Waltzing Matilda" at 1406, after the news, which was the only
meaningful detail I could pull in. My brief WM audio at http://goo.gl/1SN6ve .

TAIWAN. 6230, Sound of Hope, 1411-1425+, March 28. News segment 
with brief musical bridges that are played between items; the same music
has been used for many years, which certainly helps ID SOH; 1421 clear
SA in English for "Sound of Hope," otherwise in Chinese; fair reception,
listening in LSB to get away from VMW (Australia Weather West), which
is in USB. Very rare to catch CNR1 (China) jamming SOH here.

Recently have been monitoring SOH here and find they occasionally give
these SAs in English, but are rather random and not at any set time, so it
may take considerable listening before one hears them. My audio clip at

Sent off a report of Craig's first day broadcasting on 4835 kHz. Below is the nice reply. 

John Wright <dxer1234@gmail.com>

"Hi Ron, Johno here mate. Okay I can eQSL your reception....OZY RADIO!
1401-1406 28th March 2018 on 4835 kHz.
I picked out the voice of AIR News and the Waltzing Matilda.
Your a first day listener for this frequency of Ozy Radio! So well done!
AIR= Australian independent Radio News.
1000 watts into the inverted V antennae at Razorback near Camden 25 NM SW of Sydney.
Yes Craig is testing this frequency!
Thank you for the information about the interference. Will pass onto Craig."

Hello! Hiroyuki and Ron-san.

Ron-san.
Always thank you from California.
Blue sky, blue sea and pure white waves.
What a beautiful picture this is!
Listening to SW while watching the beautiful scenery is the best!

I was challenged to WeatherFAX reception from California.

USA. 8682, NMC Point Reyes, California, 1400-1413, March 29.
My report at http://radio.chobi.net/DX/weatherBBS/?res:34

And, I was listening to your SOH reception audio.

Your audio clip at http://goo.gl/y5tvbP
0:40-0:48 "Ting-ting, Xiwang zhi sheng, Sound of Hope,
Quan shijie huaren de guoji guangbo diantai."
In English, "Let's listen, Xiwang zhi sheng, Sound of Hope,
International broadcasting for the Chinese people around the world."

Nice catch from California! Ron-san.
6230kHz, SOH is the output 1 kW in Aoki List.

ANGOLA. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola, March 30. Clearly off the air 
0218 through subsequent checking of 0357; noted on the air 0424+.

AUSTRALIA. 4835, Ozy Radio, March 30 was the best day so far; 1204
(after the news) the usual format of commercial announcement for radios
("We have thousands of satisfied customers around the world. So why
not join them today?"), followed by laughing kookaburra, then nice
"Waltzing Matilda"; followed by former Australian jazz-rock group,The
Southern Contemporary Rock Assembly (SCRA), with "Roly Poly."
Any day that this is strong enough for me to SA a song that I had never
heard before, well that's a good day, even if it's poor reception. My "Roly
Poly" audio clip at http://goo.gl/QvPTLH .

At 1220, started to notice a definite second audio that was mixing here
with Ozy Radio; assume was AIR Gangtok (Sikkim); by 1305 could only
make out a distinctive het (SAH [subaudible heterodyne]); Glenn Hauser
today reported 1229-1234 with SAH, along with Ozy Radio. Was perfect
timing to hear audio from AIR Gangtok, as their local sunset was at 1222 UT.
Today was the first time I have heard Gangtok since Craig started
broadcasting here. Gangtok had recently been broadcasting rather erratically,
as was not on the air every day.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1143-1156*, March 30. In English; playing pop songs in
English; mixing with PBS Yunnan, which fortunately was mostly announcers in
Chinese; clearly two stations on frequency; BBS with decent signal, but the PBS
QRM made Bhutan unreadable. Thimphu sunset was at 1218 UT. My audio of
them mixing at http://goo.gl/Fb52ig .

BOLIVIA. 5952.42, Radio Pio Doce, 0222, March 30. Start of whistling “Colonel
Bogey March,” with full SA and chimes; almost fair; 0224 end of audio; then just
carrier (dead air); stayed here till transmitter off at 0241.

CONGO[Republic of]. 6115, Radio Congo (presumed), on March 30, at 0555; had
just missed the sign on; announcers in French; mixing with stronger Japan ("RN2"),
which had mostly pop songs in Japanese or English; Congo with no music.
Brazzaville local sunrise was at 0501 UT, so by 0605 signal was unusable against
the more powerful RN2. My audio at http://goo.gl/k4kmhf .

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, RNGE, R. Bata, on March 30, at 0524; had just
missed the sign on; certainly one of my better receptions here; nicely above
threshold level audio with pop African songs; music 0524-0530, when the audio
suddenly ended; after that had decent level carrier (dead air), but never again with
any audio heard; tuned away at 0540. Station must have started close to the Bata
local sunrise of 0521 UT. My audio at http://goo.gl/KGtBCC . Wonderful to
finally get some decent audio here for a change.

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, with well above average reception, 1039-1107,
April 1. Mostly pop songs (Bee Gees "How Deep Is Your Love," Bobby
McFerrin "Don't Worry Be Happy," Eagles "One Of These Nights," etc.);
1100-1107 news & weather ("chance of thunderstorm"); best in USB due
to QRM from China (Beibu Bay Radio) on 5050.

4835, Ozy Radio, April 1, yet another day with improved reception; getting
better and better; 1017 sounded like a drama(?); pop songs; 1025 spot
mentioning "Melbourne"(?); Australian singer Olivia Newton-John with
"If You Love Me, Let Me Know." My audio at http://goo.gl/qy728L . Audio
contains the sweeping sounds of QRM from CODAR (article about Monterey
Bay, California, CODAR HF radar - http://goo.gl/m2ggBs); today no OTH
radar or utility QRM.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, April 1, above average conditions,
making for fairly readable reception; 0927 religious (Christian) song in English;
0932 start of Easter Sunday sermon in Pidgin, with good number of words in
English; "number one feast day on the Christian calendar," "victorious over sin
in the world, corruption, injustice, exploitation," "human solidarity," "we must
take control of our lives," etc.; noted 1202* cut off, leaving RRI Palangkaraya
in the clear. My audio at http://goo.gl/zRr42g .

INDIA. 7554.82, AIR via Delhi-Kingsway, 1219, April 1. Almost fair with good
audio. Seems to me Kingsway uses two transmitters(?) here on different days -
one about 7555.69 and the other one on the low side of 7555; have noted some
slight drifting, but not enough to account for the two frequencies.

KOREA NORTH. 6040, testing their jamming (pulsating noise) at *1210, on April 1,
as at 1300, Shiokaze will sign on; transmitter on-off-on. . .; this caused QRM for
both China (PBS Yunnan) on 6035 and for Alaska (KNLS) on 6045.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 1007, April 1.
Repetitive, long religious song; 1013 start of an Easter Sunday religious service;
perhaps from a church,as the audio was not very good.

Ron, listening at Asilomar State Beach (near Monterey), California


Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(15) Ron Howard - Apr 02, 2018 18:20 UTC No.3160

ALASKA. 6045 // 7355 , KNLS, on April 2, at 1227, both with excellent
(a term I rarely use!) reception; basic SW DXing info (my audio at
http://goo.gl/KfrX9R). Thanks very much to Glenn for "Other English at
12-13 now listed as 7355, unconfirmed yet here (Glenn Hauser, WORLD
OF RADIO 1923, ibid.)," in DXLD 18-13.

Interesting to compare my reception out here on the coast, compared to
Glenn's QTH - "7355, March 30 at 1248, trying to hear KNLS English hour
as now scheduled: only a JBA carrier under residual Cuban pulse jamming
against nothing else. // 6045 presumed KNLS with JBA signal... (Glenn
Hauser, OK)."

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, April 2, tuned in at 1016 to find strong OTH radar;
still strong QRM at last 1315 check, so no reception possible today.

4835, Ozy Radio, April 2. Day by day slightly improving; 1034 with Australian
duo, Air Supply, with "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All"; 1100 news ending
at 1106 with the usual commercial announcement for radios, laughing
kookaburra, "Waltzing Matilda" and brief SA; still with QRM from CODAR.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, April 2, at 1016, with "Unchained
Melody" by The Righteous Brothers; 1024 promo for "NBC Bougainville";
1125 in Pidgin, about next years independence referendum; 1130-1136
speech in English by Hon. Chief Dr. John Momis (President of the
Autonomous Bougainville Government) about independence issues for
Bougainville, need for adequate housing, critical of the national government
"sabotaging" the people of Bougainville, etc.; semi-readable.

CHINA[non-log]. 9410, CNR5. Clearly this has been dropped from the A18
schedule. April 2, still a totally clear frequency at 1206; also no Taiwan, but
on 9774, had definite weak carrier, so assume Fu Hsing BS.

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM Limbang, 1315, April 2 (Monday). Start of the
Monday segment of the "Wai FM Limbang" portion of RTM broadcasts; pop
songs; frequent SAs.

Note that Aoki lists "RTM Wai/Limbang FM" here, which perhaps has confused
some folks? Believe the "Wai FM Limbang" SA is only used on Monday &
Thursday from 1315 to 1400, otherwise is just the straight "Wai FM" SA, or
has someone actually heard a clear "Wai FM Limbang" SA at any other time/day?

Was very interested to learn that Timm Breyel, who lives in Malaysia, posted to
WRTH Facebook page, a log and audio clip for his 0410 UT reception on 11665;
SAing as "Radio Tawau" & "Limbang FM, Radio Tawau". I had never heard these
SAs before (not possible to hear them at 0410 at my QTH), so of course I very
much enjoyed hearing his clear audio clip! It certainly helps reception by living in
Malaysia! https://app.box.com/s/7skup8625aqmqmeoqxzu0o2e9umag72a Thanks
to Timm for passing this along, as well as his informing of this:

"With General Elections in Malaysia coming up in a few months, Sarawak FM and
Wai FM seem to be operating round-the-clock. A few days ago (26 March 2018),
I noticed Sarawak FM programming on both 9.835 kHz and 11.665 kHz after 18.00
UTC. Limbang FM - Radio Tawau (Sabah) was equally unusual; generally Wai FM
(Sabah) is heard. Transmission is from Kajang (Selangor) / studio programming
originates presumably in Limbang/Tawau (Sabah)." Dan Sheedy (Calif.) has also
heard the greatly extended current schedule.

Also RTM just celebrated their 72nd year of broadcasting on April 1.





Re: Malaysia Ron Howard - Apr 03, 2018 17:38 UTC No.3161
MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM via Kajang (on the west coast of the Malaysia 
peninsular), 1408-1448, April 3. In vernacular; coverage of the national competition
for recitations from the Qur'an (Majlis Tilawah Dan Menghafaz Al-Quran Peringkat
Kebangsaan), being held this year at the Putrajaya Islamic Complex; sponsored by
the Islamic Development Department of Malaysia; series of about 10 minutes of
reciting, with both men and women in the competition; very rare to hear women,
but they have a women's division in the competition; 1445 mentioned "RTM." This
could possibly be a TV audio feed? Being held from April 1-6, so there should be
more days with this coverage here; fair. 1500-1510 news in vernacular (not // 11665).

11665, Wai FM, 1500, April 3. Start of a program of uniquely indigenous music and
chanting; at 1503 the singular "Wai FM" SA; still chanting at 1511.

Re: Malaysia Ron Howard - Apr 04, 2018 23:52 UTC No.3162
On April 6 (Friday), I will be checking 9835 kHz, after 1200+ UT, as that 
will be the last day of this years Qur'an recital and memorization competitions.
Every year they announce the winners of the various categories on the last
day. Of special interest is the fact that the program is given in Malay, Arabic
and English (French had been used in past years, but not in 2015). Makes,
I think, for entertaining listening! BTW - This year I have not heard the
competition on 11665 kHz., but only 9835. Have also checked for possible
special reactivation on 5965 (Radio Klasik) and 6050 (Asyik FM), but both
are not on the air, so it's just 9835 this year.

My clear audio (edited to only English), is at http://goo.gl/HLcbvi of the 2015,
International Al Quran Recital and Memorization Assembly program; starting
with National Anthem and "Your Royal Highness, excellencies, distinguished
guests, ladies and gentlemen. Good evening and welcome to the closing night
and prize presentation ceremony . . . ."

- - - -  From WRTH Facebook page:

Mauno Ritola
As Ron Howard reported on WOR list, Mongolian Radio has reactivated 7260 kHz.
Let's see, for how long this time? Weak signal here in Finland, co-ch. Xinjiang-Ch
much stronger. Mongolia on nominal fq, Xinjiang 10 Hz below. Both 4895 and
4830 kHz remain off at 0915. Surprisingly this time not carrying either 1st or 2nd
prgr, but the third one! [link to program three - http://www.mnb.mn/live/radio3]

Ron Howard
April 8 - From 1130 to 1148 UTC, on 7260 kHz., non-stop pop songs by same YL
American singer; no announcements at all; assume Mongolia and clearly fits the
program three format of non-stop pop songs; stronger than China, which fortunately
was just talking till they started music at 1148, making for more of a challenge to
make out Mongolia. Thanks very much to Mauno for the positive confirmation and
link to program three. Very nice to have them active again! Today nothing on 4830
nor on 4895.

- - - - - Ron wrote in DXLDyg & WOR iog:

Hi Eduard,

Here in California, have recently been checking 7259.96 kHz. for the return of
Vanuatu. Last week heard a second station on 7260.0 kHz. (other than the
normal China heard there) and thought it could have been new activity from
Mongolia, during my early morning (1130+ UT). Due to this, I had carefully
been also checking 4830 kHz. and 4895 kHz. every morning, to see if they
switched to these lower frequencies. April 7, I was unable to check, but Jim
Young (also Calif.) did in fact hear carriers on both frequencies. So I think
there is an excellent chance Mongolia is active again. Am very sure Vanuatu
has not returned yet to their normal off frequency of 7259.96 kHz.

KOREA SOUTH. back to former 6045.0, Voice of Freedom, 1038+, April 10, 
ex: 5917.4v. In Korean and with pop songs; strong signal and good reception,
without any jamming, as it's their first day back here.

Look for serious QRM from Alaska (KNLS) from 1200 to 1300, which will also be
on frequency.

QRM from China on frequency. R. Vanuatu has not returned yet to the air.

April 10, at 1040+, noted carrier on 4895, which was Mongolian Radio 3, as confirmed

promo for "NBC Bougainville" (no news); DJ with pop songs; poor;
some RRI QRM; noted 1204* cut off. NBC Madang (3260) off the
air today.

KOREA NORTH[non-logs]. Noted 1004-1021, also 1119 to past 1150 &
1222-1236, on April 13, with no jamming of S. Korea frequencies; 3910,

pop songs (John Denver - "Annie's Song," etc.); series of SAs ("Now you are

Hiroyuki Okamura, can you hear this?

Hiroyuki Okamura
Weak Signal. Music Low Module.

Mauno Ritola
Thanks. Maybe it identifies at 1300?

Hiroyuki Okamura
Because it is in the HAM band, there are many interference.
The sound is also weak. Which broadcasting station is this?

Mauno Ritola
If we knew, we wouldn't ask :-)

Mauno Ritola
I have a weak signal via Akitaka remote rx, no problem with hams,
but the signal is too weak.

"Listening to this at 1257, with F voice talking No TS at TOH. F voice
continued to past 1304. I am biased, but sounds FF. Not strong, but
audio far better than AIR stations on 60-M.

Could this be the old irregular 30 KW station in Madagascar? I will stay
on this while she is talking still at 1307+. F Singing mx at 1311:30, and F
announcer back at 1315+. Talking still at 1320, but not sure if same
announcer now....maybe M." Jim left his home to go to a better remote
site near him, but when he arrived at 1333, he found this UNID had already
left the air.

ANDAMAN & NICOBAR ISLANDS. 4760, AIR Port Blair (presumed 
not to be AIR Leh [Kashmir]). On April 17, with better than normal
reception 1343-1353; my local sunrise was at 1330 UT; good signal
strength cutting through the QRN (static) and CODAR QRM.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1041-1132, April 17. In
Pidgin; pop and religious music; no news at ToH; seems to not be on
the air every day; some RRI QRM.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, 1210-1240 & 1329, April 17. Clearly a
permanent change in format and schedule since March 21; daily noted
many hours past former 1200*; still in the relay mode of a FM station;
in Chinese; many commercial announcements; seems no longer the
"Voice of Shangri-la" format; at 1329, with considerable N. Korean
jamming QRM from 6040 (Shiokaze) and that also causes QRM for
Voice of Freedom on 6045.

Suggest that if folks are hearing just a solo station here after 1200, that
it's Yunnan and not Bhutan, which when BBS is on the air, normally
would go off about 1200 and when they do run past 1200, their format
is very different than PBS and would in fact be mixing with Yunnan.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1316, April 17. A day with much stronger than
usual audio; in Hindi and subcontinent music; almost fair.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045.0, Voice of Freedom, April 15 (Sunday), at 0945,
with the start of the program in Korean called "Ingwon balo algi" ("Know
human rights correctly"); portion with radio drama; reception fair-good with
no jamming, which was still down on 5920. My audio of SA at http://goo.gl/VArjR5 .
The SAs I'm making here are only possible with the kind guidance of Amano-san
(Saitama, Japan). Not off frequency here and no drifting, so definitely a different
transmitter than was heard on 5917.4v.

MONGOLIA. 7260, Mongolian Radio 3 (presumed), on April 16, at 1032. Phone in
program; same program heard again on April 17; not bad reception, as China had
not propagated yet; both days not on 4830 nor 4895.

RUSSIA. 7295 // 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0950, April 15. Commercial
announcements ("on-line" service, etc.) and music; ToH time pips (still with no IS);
fair, with both frequencies doing well. My audio clip at http://goo.gl/CB3wXe .

UNIDENTIFIED. 7155.0, thanks to Jim Young, Mauno Ritola and Thorsten Hallmann
for their assistance with this one. April 17, both Mauno and I noted 1328*; very weak
reception; at times able to tell whether announcers or music, but reception otherwise
unusable. Mauno speculates that this is a VOV spur, which I certainly agree with, as
does Thorsten. Seems the most logical conclusion!

ALASKA. 6045, KNLS, 1229, April 20. Strong signal, but mixing with
equally strong Voice of Freedom (Korea). What was unusual was that
// 7355 was not on the air today (had recently been heard with good
signal).

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1019-1157*, April 20. DJ in
Pidgin playing pop Pacific Islands songs and pop hit songs in English
(Shania Twain - "From This Moment On," etc.); speech in English about
2019 referendum; 1102 sound affects and series of "NBC Bougainville"
SAs; no news at 1100; suddenly cut off in mid-song; stronger signal than
usual. Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya (3325) was clearly not broadcasting
during this time period, nor after 1157.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260), on April 20, also with above average reception;
1159-1212*, cut off in mid-song.

CHINA. 6115, Voice of Strait, 1220, April 20. Reception here well above the
norm, while the other VOS frequency on 9505 was silent; normally they are
both heard with fair reception.

MONGOLIA. 7260, Mongolian Radio 3 (presumed), on April 20, at 1217. Pop
music and announcers; clearly not in Chinese, but with China QRM. On 4895,
heard OTH radar blocking frequency 1216-1318, but by 1324 no radar and no
Mongolia; 4830 also silent.

So 7260 is on daily, with 4895 being on erratically.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (presumed), 1213, April 20. Had a definite, decent
strength carrier, but by 1318 off the air.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, on April 20, noted with extended broadcast;
at 1224, with decent level carrier, but no audio (has been a long time since I last
was able to make out any audio here); due to their being on the air longer than
usual, was in fact able to faintly hear some music and announcers by 1256; went
off the air sometime around 1319. In past years their audio level was fine.

BHUTAN/CHINA. 6035, on April 21:

BBS (Bhutan), mixing with relay of FM 99 (Kunming, Yunnan Province, China), from 1125, till BBS cut off at 1139*; certainly two stations mixing here; one with mostly non-stop music (believe FM 99 relay) and the other mostly with announcers (believe BBS); onward from 1139 to 1320, just FM 99 programming here, with various amounts of adjacent QRM (at times heavy QRM); overall reception was poor; format consisted of segments with either non-stop EZL pop songs or non-stop commercial announcements in Chinese; I presume this to be the relay of FM 99, as others have confirmed SA (see below), but I think it will be a challenge for me to actually make out an SA here due to poor reception and at the beach, I don't have access to FM 99 online audio streaming.

Thanks very much to Mauno Ritola and Hiroyuki Komatsubara for establishing the positive ID of the FM relay. Great work on their part!

From Mauno - "Yes, FM 99 relay 2300-1630 in Chinese as far as I have managed to check, also at 1000 and 1100. But there is still one Shangri-La segment in Vietnamese 1630-1700 and also SA in English." ["Yunnan Radio and Television International, the Voice of Shangri-La" - Ron]

BHUTAN/CHINA. 6035, on April 26, with BBS extended broadcast:

PBS Yunnan (assume FM99 relay), from 1141 to 1301+; in Chinese;
announcers and music.

BBS, mixing with PBS Yunnan, from 1141 till about 1255. From 1141
to 1202 seemed to be in English, with pop songs; 1202-1223 usual OM
monologue; normal brief breaks for indigenous instrumental music at 1217
and 1221; then 1221-1230 into segment with songs; after 1230 announcer
and later some more songs; still heard at 1250, but probably off about 1255
(too weak to be positive).

In the past was always nice when BBS went past 1200, as Yunnan would go
off about 1200, but no longer the case, with PBS running till at least 1600.

CANADA. 6030, Calgary - CFVP relaying CKMX (AM 1060), 1208+, on April 25;
mixing with stronger CNR12; comedians with lots of canned laughter; several
clear SAs; "Laugh your ass off to and from work with Calgary's all new funny
10-60 AM" and "share a laugh with us . . . Calgary's all new funny 10-60 AM.
Jerry Seinfeld"; Calgary and Monterey today with same sunrise time (1320 UT).
Surprising how well 100w was doing up against 100kW.

KOREA NORTH. 3320 // 6400, Pyongyang BS, 1244 & 1322, April 26, with 6400
much stronger, but this frequency certainly not on the air daily, while 3320 is every
day.

MONGOLIA. 4830, 4895 & 7260, Mongolian Radio 3 (presumed), on April 26, after
1114+; only carrier on 4830 & 4895, with audio on 7260 (QRM China); 7260 is noted
daily, while 4895 is on some days, while 4830 has not been used often. Jim Young
(Calif.) was also hearing these today.

USA. 7505v, WRNO, on April 26, from 1121 to 1138. Have monitored their Chinese
language programs a number of times, but today heard with a different format; native
speaker of English preaching, saying a few sentences, followed by another person
translating into Chinese; 1137 contact info in Chinese and English. My audio at

"Take Me Down," etc.); very slight RRI QRM. BTW - NBC Madang (3260)

local sunrise was at 0457 UT.

Re: Monitoring Korea Ron Howard - Apr 27, 2018 23:50 UTC No.3213
With all the current political activity going on in Korea, we should certainly 
be monitoring Korea for any new developments on SW.

- - - - April 27: Email from Martyn Williams:

"Hey Ron,

I'm closely monitoring the North/South propaganda radios with interest.

The declaration signed at the summit today said "South and North Korea
agreed to completely cease all hostile acts against each other in every
domain, including land, air and sea, that are the source of military tension
and conflict. In this vein, the two sides agreed to transform the demilitarized
zone into a peace zone in a genuine sense by ceasing as of May 1 this year
all hostile acts and eliminating their means, including broadcasting through
loudspeakers and distribution of leaflets, in the areas along the Military
Demarcation Line."

I have no idea if this means the radio stations will temporarily (permanently)
fall silent or just continue. The broadcasting mentioned above, that always
pisses off the North Koreans, is the loudspeaker stuff.

Let me know if you notice any changes.

It's all still on the air now with jamming, via remote SDR."

- - - WRTH Facebook page (April 27):

Chris Kadlec
Expect some major changes on the Korean radio dials starting on May 1st.
All propaganda stations on FM, MW, and SW are likely to go dark or change
programming. VOF and the others from Hwaseong, Taereung, and Goyang
are likely to go dark. With the loudspeakers being turned off on the 1st, expect
101.7, 103.1, and 107.3 (all run parallel to the speakers) to likely revert back
to their old format of military educational stations (formerly "DEBS" when I
first moved to Korea with English lessons, etc.), though no clue what will
become of Jayu FM (94.5, 96.1, 97.7, 100.6). V15 and V24 numbers
stations are likely to go dark as well, which they usually are 99% of the
day anyway. No information from the north on the fate of their stations,
naturally, but I'd expect 97.8 Haeju and its rebroadcasters outside Seoul
to turn off (as they are purely propaganda only), though the other AM and
FM networks are domestic-based. Jammers will likely continue due to this.
Or not? (Nobody knows anything).
[April 26, at 1020+, found VOF with their usual strong signal on 6045.0 kHz.
and again heard April 27 - Ron]

Re: Update - 4KZ on 5055 kHz. Ron Howard - Apr 28, 2018 23:44 UTC No.3214
Al Kirton (general manager of Radio 4KZ, on 5055 kHz.), sent a brief
video of the 4KZ studio, located at Innisfail (Queensland). The studio
has a nice view of the Johnstone River.

Video at http://goo.gl/8FCKWB .

John Wright (Australia) indicates that the 5055 kHz. station, as of April 26,
is now 1kW.

On April 28, I did in fact note a slight improvement and was almost able to
catch a song title, checking from 1119+. So is worth starting to monitor 4KZ
again, especially on days with good propagation. Thanks to Johno for this info.

ALASKA. 6045, KNLS, *1200, April 28. Voice of Freedom already on
frequency with good signal, along with N. Korea jamming; suddenly on
with SA & IS; // 7355. My audio at http://goo.gl/g5Hpsv .

AUSTRALIA. 5055, 4KZ, on April 29. Yes, all the evidence here points to
being 1kW now; 1214+ with mostly pop songs and some commercial
announcements; above threshold level audio; finally at 1315 was able to
SA a song (Dobie Gray - "Drift Away"), whereas the other songs played I
was not familiar with. My local sunrise was at 1316 UT.

This station started last year on Dec 20. Was doing fairly well for only 500w
back in Dec-Jan, but Feb-Apr found most days with below threshold level
audio (unusable), so was very nice today to be able to actually hear this at
a level that I could SA a song. Look forward to days with even better
propagation here.

[non-log] 4835, Ozy Radio, on April 29, continues to be silent here. Only
hearing some faint audio from AIR Gangtok (presumed), at 1257.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, 1235-1242, April 30. The
Monday only SAARC (The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation)
news bulletin in English; “Assalamu alaikum. This is Bangladesh Betar”; items -
three members of the UN Security Council delegation visiting Bangladesh held
news conference, loan agreement for railroad project signed Friday in Beijing
between Bangladesh & China, eleven children died Thursday due to train hitting
a school bus in India and Indian guru sentenced to life in prison for rape; very rare
that I can make out so many news items, as usually there is too much CODAR and
CNR1 QRM; at 1255 the end of the daily very brief segment with the weather in
English.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on April 29, with another Sunday of
religious (Christian) programs; impassioned preaching in Pidgin; religious/inspirational songs ("Keep On the Sunny Side," "Show Me The Way To A Brighter Day," etc.); above average reception; 0937-1054 & 1205*. Also this Sunday with the same format of religious programs was NBC Madang (3260), with even more preaching in Pidgin than on 3325.

1001-1010, on 3325, with NBC news/sports, but 3260 didn't carry the news, but instead
more preaching. A rare day with both stations well above the norm.

CHINA. 7345-USB, V26, at 0912, on April 30. Numbers given in Chinese; poor. For about
three days have not heard Russia (R. Sakha) here, nor on 7295.

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. April 30. So far all SW activity seems normal, with the usual S.
Korean stations being jammed. What will happen tomorrow?

MONGOLIA. 4830 and 7260, seemed the only active frequencies for Mongolian Radio 3
(presumed), on April 30, at 1205; 4830 with decent level carrier and 7260 the usual audio mixing with China; while 4895 was completely silent; both still noted at 1245, but 4830 was off the air by 1258, with 7260 still on.

RUSSIA[non-log]. 7295 & 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, on April 30. Has not been heard
for about three days now.

TAIWAN. 9774, Fu Hsing BS, 1115 & 1243, on April 28. Best in LSB; faint audio; nothing on clear frequency of 9410. Same noted again on April 30.

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. On May 1, looking for any of the expected 
changes that might have happened today. None noted; the status quo
has been maintained.

Checking the two frequencies I was most interested in, found 6015 with
KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1 blocked by the usual white noise jamming
from N. Korea and 6135 also had strong white noise jamming, when
monitoring from 1043 through 1358, so no chance to check for
Madagascar on 6135. Also 6045 with the normal good signal strength
from the Voice of Freedom, but also with the usual light jamming.

Can we still hope that the jamming may stop in the near future?

ALASKA. 6045, KNLS, 1208, May 2. Interesting anomaly. During 
my daily monitoring of the Voice of Freedom here from Korea, I
had recently been observing KNLS with strong *1200, in English,
but not so today; had Russian audio feed instead; normally would
have been // 7355, but not so today, as that frequency indeed was
carrying the correct schedule of English audio feed. Probably a one
day mix up?

BHUTAN/CHINA. 6035, on May 2, at 1135, with BBS (Bhutan), mixing
with relay of FM99 (Kunming, Yunnan Province, China), via PBS Yunnan;
BBS cut off at 1150*; after which FM99 was in the clear with their usual
FM type programming in Chinese, and was still being heard at 1440, long
past the former "Voice of Shangri-la" format that cut off about 1200*.

KOREA NORTH. 3320 // 6400, Pyongyang BS, 1124, May 2. With 6400
strong signal, but this frequency certainly not on the air daily, while 3320
is daily.

SINGAPORE. 9410, BBC, 1033-1101, May 2. As I daily check here for
Fu Hsing BS (Taiwan), was surprised today to find BBC for the first time
(ex: 9900), in English, with a good signal; interesting story about former
Soviet Union causing the drying up of the Aral Sea, located by Kazakhstan
and Uzbekistan. So 1000-1200 impossible to tell if Taiwan is here or not.
9774 (Fu Hsing BS ) was silent today.

Hello! Ron-san and Hiroyuki.
Thank you for always reporting.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, VOF Yagan Bangsong (Nighttime Program) ,
1800-1900, on May 3.
At this time, there was no North Korean Pip Jamming.
It seems that program composition of Yagan Bangsong has been
partially modified in May.

My audio at http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4211.mp3
1800-1900, a new Yagan Bangsong program
"Pyeon-an ttae deudneun eum-ag pyeonjib" appeared.
In English program name it is
"Music editing to listen when comfortable".

At 2100 on April 16, I have confirmed this program
on Ojeon bangsong (Morning program).
My report at http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/?res:4197

This program is 1 hour Less talk, More Korean music program.
The first song of this time was "Flower Road" by BIGBANG.

AUSTRALIA. 5055.0, 4KZ, on May 6, with one of their better days; 
1313-1356*; pop songs; the Drifters - "Under The Boardwalk," the
Box Tops - "The Letter," etc.; several tentative SAs and some
commercial announcements (almost readable); as usual cut off
by timer in mid-song; best in USB, to avoid China on 5050. Still
with some SSB chatter in Spanish.

May 5, from 1337 till cut off at 1356*; pop songs (Eagles - "Take
It Easy," etc.); 1346-1348 ads and/or promos.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, May 5, from 1252
to 1254, with weather ("rain & showers"), as well as the high & low
temps in the country, plus sunrise & sunset times in English during
these daily brief spots; CODAR and CNR1 QRM.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on May 6, from
1112+, clearly off the air today.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut),
1112-1206*, May 6. Another Sunday of religious programs; mostly
religious songs ("He Will Make Our Way," etc.); announcers in Pidgin;
suddenly cut off; above average reception; NBC Bougainville (3325)
silent this Sunday.

RUSSIA[non-log]. 7295 & 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, through
May 6, remains silent during my local evening & morning monitoring.

TAJIKISTAN[non-log]. 7245, checking for Voice of Tajik, in English, per
Ivo's April 28 log (scheduled 1300-1400); so tuned in at 1300, on May 5,
but at *1301, frequency covered by extremely strong signal of CNR2,
so impossible for me to hear any English; couldn't make out anything
1300-1301.

easy-listening music and some traditional Chinese music/singing, still
going at 1402+.

With the A18 schedule, have not heard CNR5 here at all, plus today's
format would not be them; Fu Hsing BS (Taiwan) is sometimes here,
but not past scheduled 1300* and not in USB + carrier. So who?

My audio of three minutes of monologue and one minute of music at

New Year's Greetings from California!

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1508, Jan 1. Always best in LSB
due to QRM from BBR (China) on 5050; John Paul Young, Scottish
born Australian pop singer with "Love Is In the Air," Australian pop

any sign on, but checking again at 0134, they were on the air; only
carrier heard. Jim Young, listening in Southern Calif., noted *0132.
My Dec 27 non-log perhaps due to late sign on?

BOLIVIA. 6134.82, R. Santa Cruz. Jan 2, with usual closing format
of the "Santa Cruz" song 0203-0205, then dead air for a long time
(0300+).

BTW - 5952.42, Radio Pio Doce, was already off the air by 0103, on
Jan 2, after their greatly extended schedule for New Year's Eve.

CHINA. 4990, PBS Hunan. Starting suddenly in Jan 2015, I found the
reception here had greatly improved and had been so till several months
ago; since then have mostly had below threshold level audio. Gone are
the days of decent reception!

ETHIOPIA. 6030, Radio Oromiya (presumed), on Jan 2. CNR1 the
strongest station here, with Calgary (Canada) with slow, deep fading in
and out at 1453, with comedy and canned laughter; by 1458 suddenly
realized I was also hearing definite HOA music/singing in the mix. Has
been a long time since I last heard this station!

INDONESIA[and non-log]. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1517+, on
Jan 2. Segment with all songs in English; Alphaville "Forever Young,"

KOREA NORTH. 6400, Pyongyang BS, 1450, on Jan 2. A very strong

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, Jan 2 running later than
usual (past normal 1200*); 1205 end of the "NBC News" in English; into
pop music show till suddenly off at 1230*.

AIR IS, which was later confirmed by Jim Young, listening in Southern
Calif.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1150-1203*, on Jan 2. Unique format
without the normally heard "Evening devotional," instead pop songs up till
the usual canned full SA; suddenly off after a few notes of the NA.

Hi Glenn,

The following posts are from WRTH Facebook. Craig Allen is the

M Breyel - This email also just in from Al Kirton [4KZ - 5055 kHz.]:
"In two or three weeks we should be up to 1.2 kilowatts." (posted

Craig Allen - "Both 5045Khz and 5055khz use Omnidirectional NVIS
antennas so the closer you are to each service the better the signal.
5055khz [4KZ] is covering the North of Australia and 5045khz [Ozy

Craig's future 5050 kHz., will of course go head to head with Beibu Bay
Radio, broadcasting from Nanning, in southern China (near Vietnam),
with 15 kW of power. Future 4835 kHz. will be unfortunate for continued
AIR Gangtok (Sikkim) reception, which here in the states is a challenge
to hear now without any QRM (once ABC Alice Springs NT closed down
it became possible to again hear Gangtok).

Jan 3, indeed found SIBC on 5020. At 1201, with the end of the
National Anthem; then just carrier (dead air); by 1240 could make
out pop music, but low modulation and significant dead air between
songs; 1345 played Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band's song
"Against the Wind"; still being heard with low modulation at final
check at 1610. Most of today was unusable! Only a few brief
announcements heard, so not the frequent SAs for "Wantok FM,"
so assume this was SIBC extended programming and not the
relay.

announcers with brief breaks for their distinctive indigenous
stringed instrumental music at 0112, 0114 and 0116; indigenous
music/singing/chanting 0116-0129. Sign on times here can vary

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1123, on Jan 4.
Recently has been off the air.

CANADA. 6030, Calgary - CFVP relaying CKMX (AM 1060), at 1338,
on Jan 4. Mixing with stronger CNR1, but could make out a definite
promo for the "Calgary Motorcycle Show," being held this Fri.-Sat.-Sun.

CHINA. 5112 USB, VC01 (Chinese military numbers station), with
numbers in Chinese; Jan 3, first noted at 1126 till past 1453+. Jan 4
from 1126 to past 1606+.

INDIA. 4920, AIR Chennai, 1600, Jan 3. What is happening here?
Recently hearing strong buzzing sound (assume a problem with
transmitter, but which one - India or Tibet?). Also noted strong buzzing
sound here on Jan 5, at 0109 and later at 1437.

6145, AIR (tentative) via Aligarh, 0135, on Jan 5. Tuning by noted
subcontinent chanting/singing, so a fair chance it was them.

7505.47, off frequency AIR, via New Delhi (Kingsway), 0216, on
Jan 5. Nice subcontinent music; my local sunset was at 0105 UT,
while Delhi sunrise was at 0145 UT. Of course this reception possible
with the absence of WRNO (USA). Last Jan also noted AIR here, but
was on 7505.0 and again with WRNO silent back then.

INDONESIA[non-logs]. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, recently off
the air, but on Jan 4, was hearing a decent level carrier here (dead air)
with no audio at all from 1222 to 1316, but by 1342 the carrier was gone;
so perhaps RRI working on their transmitter?

Voice of Indonesia (9525.95), continues silent; Jan 4 checking 1124-
1221.

There are a number of days now that this country has no presence
on SW at all.

KOREA NORTH. On Jan 4, from 1307 to 1312, there was no jamming
at all of the various South Korea stations (5995, 6015, 6135, etc.), but
started up again at *1312.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6085, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata, 1300
on Jan 4 (Thursday). Anomaly today, should have been in English, but not
so during 1300-1400; instead Japanese first half hour, followed by Korean.
A one time Thursday anomaly?

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, 1600, Jan 4. Choral National Anthem
(Negaraku ・Lagu Kebangsaan Malaysia); fair.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1231-1238, on Wednesday, Jan 3.
Language lesson "Say It In English"; "How do I pronounce this word?"
"How do I say that?"; more dialog with Tom and his aunt Jennifer; not as
readable as usual. Repeat of Monday's show.

Wednesday's (Jan 3) VOA program "The Benefits of Baby Talk," at 1542;
was a repeat of last Wednesday's show.

5985, on Thursday, Jan 4, with NHK's production of "Friends Around

(Elton John "Your Song," Steely Dan "Rikki Don't Lose That Number,"
etc.); several series of commercial announcements; 1400 news about
the fires, etc.

Radio 4KZ - Full data (500w) SW QSL card, in 17 days, for an emailed
reception report of their first day on the air; v/s Al Kirton - General
Manager. Al included a note indicating my report was "Our most distant

stamp on it. My QSL at http://goo.gl/fZFbsb

ERITREA. 7140.0, VOBME 1 (presumed), 1420, on Jan 6. Nice HOA
repetitive music/singing; ham QRM, but no white noise/DRM jamming.
Have never understood why the jamming only starts about 1502? Why
not start when Eritrea first comes on the air?

phone calls; some HOA music/singing; only ham QRM, with no white noise/

Very noticeable het due to AIR Radio Kashmir, Srinagar, on 4950.0;
after 0215 het was gone.

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1230-1310, Jan 7. Best in LSB;
1230-1235 news (close to being readable); pop songs; the Melbourne
duo of Globos (Wendy De Waal and Mark Trevorrow), with "The Beat
Goes On," etc.; 1259-1309 news; followed by commercial announcement

5055, Radio 4KZ, 1314, Jan 7. Best in USB; mostly pop songs; Elvis
with "Love Me Tender"; series of commercial announcements; poor.

The power output of 4KZ? There have been considerable comments
made at WRTH Facebook page regarding just what the power on 5055
kHz. is. Craig Allen's (Ozy Radio) input and info from Al Kirton (4KZ), et
al., are all rather contradictory (500w, 300w or 250w?). My 4KZ SW QSL
indicates 500w, but is that correct? Sent "thank you" email (Jan 7) to Al
regarding his QSL to me. His reply "We are still on 250 watts. I am sure
you will notice an improvement when we go to 1kW," so who can say for
sure?

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on Jan 8, with a late sign on; not on at 0132, but

music/singing; 0200 news (seemed in Hindi), followed by child with
commercial announcement; poor due to QRM.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6085, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata, 1334,
Jan 7, Sunday. Special rebroadcast of the joint Shiokaze & Furusato no

end international symposium that was held in Tokyo; jammed.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1134 till cut off at 1210*,
Jan 7. Their normal Sunday religious programs of preaching in Pidgin
and religious songs; poor. Clearly they have re-scheduled the syndicated
program hosted by Stacy Rose ("Island Praise"), which formerly would
have been here Sunday at about 1200. I miss her unique music show!

SIKKIM. 4835.0, AIR Gangtok, 0109, Jan 8. Subcontinent music; weak.

indigenous stringed instrumentals at 1213 & 1215; indigenous music/
singing from 1220 till suddenly off; mixing with PBS Yunnan (China) till

to have them back again!

Highlights:

0230: Test tone already on; mixing with CRI (China), in Russian.

0240: Test tone off; start of the distinctive call of the African Fish
Eagle (national bird of Zambia) IS, till Anthem at 0251; still mixing

drums and singing.

0359: Call of the African Fish Eagle, along with music.

0400-0404: News in vernacular, followed by rooster crowing & ads(?).

BOTSWANA. 4930, VOA, continuing with their expanded schedule;
Jan 13 at 0042; first time I have ever heard indigenous African music
here, usually only hearing Western style pop songs (The hit - VOA 1,
English language music network). Program called "African Music Mix";
this from their website:

"From North to South and East to West, African Music Mix plays only
the best. Tune in and enjoy the non-stop dance-party with your favorite
African artists. Drawing from an archive of over 15,000 African selections
of dance music styles such as N'dombolo, Benga, Hip-Life, Couper-Decaler,
Fuji, Mbalax, Rai, Kwaito, Hip Hop, and Desert Blues. Join the party and
listen to African Music Mix, the best variety of African dance music."
http://www.voanews.com/z/1437/about .

Later, after 0105, carried "The hit - VOA 1" music show.

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio. More and more I'm recently hearing
segments after 1500+ that are in English, as well as the normal Chinese.
Jan 13, at 1512, in English explaining about some pop song; into a comedy
skit that also had some English, but mostly in Chinese. More monitoring
is needed to determine just how prevalent this English is.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, at 1542, Jan 13, sports item in English about
today's South Africa vs India cricket match (see Jeypore); news headlines -
helicopter crash off Mumbai coast, etc.

5040, AIR Jeypore, 1431-1450, Jan 13. Live coverage from South Africa
of the India vs RSA cricket match; in English & Hindi; AIR promo to contact

etc. Thanks very much to Dave Valko for the early alert that this was on!

Public Service Announcement, along with SA; pop songs; Australian
folk group, The Seekers, with "A World of Our Own," etc.; best in LSB.

5055, Radio 4KZ. Best in USB; 1144-1205*, Jan 15. Checking for the
new sign off time; did go off the air, so tuned away, assuming they were
really off for good, but not so; a 1223 check, found them back on the air
again; still broadcasting 1357+; mostly pop songs ("I Want to Know What
Love Is" by Foreigner, etc.). Ozy Radio (5045) better today than 4KZ.

INDIA. 5040, AIR Jeypore, 1126, Jan 15. Third day of live coverage
from South Africa of the India vs RSA cricket match; in English & Hindi;
asking listeners to contact them at cricket @ allindiaradio.?; later back to
regular programming (subcontinent music/singing), as rain interrupted the
South Africa match.

INDONESIA[and non-log]. 9525.95, VOI, on Jan 14, still off the air; no
carrier at all at 1324. Jan 15, no carrier at 1138, 1307 & 1359 checking.
So 3325 (Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya) remains the only active SW Indonesian
station.

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. 6250, on Jan 15, at 1257, with a rare event;
instead of the normal heavy jamming from N. Korea, was able to hear two
stations mixing together with no jamming; from the south with the much
weaker Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (10 kW) and from the north with
Echo of Unification (100 kW); 1259 clear "V O H" SA underneath EOU.
Usually the jamming is so strong here it's impossible to tell what is going
on. My audio at http://goo.gl/sQQwKu .

KOREA NORTH. On Jan 14, at 1148, noted no jamming at all on
3910, 3930, 3985, 5995, 6015, 6135, etc. Again on Jan 15, at 1252,
all N. Korea jamming off the air on same frequencies. A daily event?


KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (VOH). Thanks very
much to Hiroyuki Komatsubara, who recently noted that VOH has
dropped their third program ("Hope plaza of my brothers" or "Hope
Plaza of my brothers who have been defeated"), which had been
exclusively on 6350.

Heard Jan 14, at 1131:

4885 - "Radio Broadcasting Guide" (not // to the other frequencies).
This one hour program is repeated every hour. Never jammed.

3985 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350 // 9100 - The main VOH program; all jammed
except for 9100.

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio, 1327, on Jan 15. Anomaly of CRI
being off the air; very rare; able to hear indigenous music/singing, but
strong QRM from 5920, with the N. Korea jamming of the Voice of Freedom
from S. Korea, so best in LSB.

7200.0, Myanmar Radio, 1230, Jan 14. Start of the lectures via Distance
Learning Service; mostly in vernacular; mentioned in English "long vowels"
and "short vowels"; fair. My frequency reference of .0, is due to the fact
that in past years this was often off frequency (7200.1), via a different
transmitter. Jan 15, off the air at 1341*, after theme music.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1201-1228*, Jan 14. Poor
reception during their normal Sunday religious music program.

BTW - NBC Bougainville (3325) continues silent through Jan 15.

tip that he tentatively was hearing NBC here on Jan 16 & 17. Interview
and monologues in Pidgin; 1120 into music segment with DJ in Pidgin;
several clear "NBC Bougainville" SAs. Very nice to have them back again!
Unable to hear any RRI QRM.

INDIA. 5040, AIR Jeypore. Jan 16, with day 4 of India vs RSA cricket
match being held in South Africa, at 1139+; seemed more English coverage
today than usual (nice!); still also with Hindi coverage.

No cricket Jan 17, from AIR Jeypore. Did hear test tone at 1126; 1127 tone
off; 1128 AIR IS; fair signal and at times good reception.

Jan 18, day 5 of cricket coverage, at 1220.

Still off frequency 7555.57v, AIR via Delhi-Kingsway, 1310, Jan 18.
Daily slightly different frequency; subcontinent singing/chanting.

KOREA NORTH[non]. first day back on former 5935, Shiokaze/Sea
Breeze, via Yamata, ex: 6085. After several non-English Thursdays,
noted Jan 18 (1300+) again with English; intro and "Today's Newsflash";
no N. Korea jamming yet; now totally blocking reception of Tibet (PBS
Xizang), which was heard underneath Shiokaze (moderate QRM).
Ex: 6085 still being jammed by N. Korea today.

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio. Since Jan 15, has been wonderful
to hear this station without the normally dominating strong CRI. Jan 18,
(1238 & 1307) still clear of CRI, but as usual QRM from 5920, with the
N. Korea jamming of the Voice of Freedom from S. Korea, so best in LSB.
So what happened to CRI?

7200.0, Myanmar Radio, 1230, Jan 17. Start of the lectures via Distance
Learning Service; in vernacular and a lot of English: lecture on nuclear
technology (applications in agriculture, industry, research, molecular biology,
etc.), English with heavy accent; lecture on "gravitational force," with many
equations; 1349* after theme music; fair-good.

Jan 18, exceptionally strong signal; 1230+; lecture about isotopes, molecules,
electrons, etc., with many different equations ("Find the different wavelengths
of an electron moving with a speed of . . . ," etc.); noticeable hum. My audio at
http://goo.gl/onNH5a .




Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (14) Ron Howard - Jan 20, 2018 22:52 UTC No.2957
AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ. Best in USB; random listening
1125 till off at 1405*, Jan 20. Mostly pop songs; Petula Clark
"Downtown," Roy Orbison(?) "Crying," Blue Swede "Hooked on
a Feeling," America "A Horse With No Name," etc.; 1400-1405
news before cut off. Any day that I can make out multi-song IDs,
is indeed a good day!

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio. On Jan 19, during 1500-1530,
with mostly Chinese, but also with what I would best describe as
an eclectic assortment of English (brief comedy skit and reading of
Lord Byron's "She Walks in Beauty," by Vincent Price); songs in
English (Mac Davis with "Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me," Augustana
with "Boston," Fiddler on the Roof (Broadway) song "To Life"; mostly
fair. My recording at http://goo.gl/iWA67s .

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. 6250, on Jan 20, at 1318, another day hearing
two stations mixing together with no N. Korea jamming; from the south with
a somewhat weaker Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (10 kW) and from the
north with Echo of Unification (100 kW); "V O H" SA underneath EOU; *1323
jamming started, totally covering both stations.

KOREA NORTH. On Jan 20, at 1318, noted no jamming at all on 3910,
3930, 3985, 5995, 6015, 6135, etc.; jamming started at *1323. Perhaps
giving the south a brief respite from the jamming due to upcoming Olympics?
Look for these daily breaks! Dave Valko on the East Coast also noted
"unjammed 1006 and again at 1209," with 6520 and 6600 in the clear.

MYANMAR. 7200.0, Myanmar Radio, 1230, Jan 20. Start of the lectures
via Distance Learning Service; trigonometry lesson with many equations.
Five minute audio at http://goo.gl/oXgRaj .

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1151-1226*, Jan 20. In Pidgin;
seemed to be interviews about the disputed 2017 Madang regional
election results (http://goo.gl/YGEyKG); first time I have heard
this Public Service Announcement - testing of their emergency
announcement system with series of tones followed in Pidgin and
tones again followed in English, that if there had been an emergency,
listeners should tune to NBC for announcements; suddenly cut off.

SUDAN. off frequency 7204.0, Sudan Radio (presumed), 0447, Jan 20.
Sounded to be in Arabic, but weak; nothing on 7205.0.

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC, at 0415, on Jan 20. 纏ambia National
Broadcasting Corporation" and "Radio One・ call of the African Fish Eagle
with music; "One Zambia, one nation"; news in vernacular; 0420 end of the
news with "Radio One" SA.

ETHIOPIA[non]. 11600, Radio OMN (Oromia Media Network) via
Kostinbrod/Sofia, testing on Jan 26; tuned in at 1554 to hear their carrier
already on; 1600 start of program; perhaps in the Oromo language, as
directed to the the Oromo people of Ethiopia; three minutes into the
broadcast hit with jamming. OMN is a U.S. based nonprofit organization,
located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Website https://www.oromiamedia.org/ .
Grayline reception, with my local sunrise at 1513 UT and Sofia sunset at
1531 UT. Also heard today at 1600, by Edward Kusalik via a remote in
Europe (HB9DC).

Thanks very much to Mauno Ritola (WRTH Facebook) for the tip that OMN
is again testing. I last heard them testing on Dec 22 (1524-1532), when they
were on the air 1500-1600; new testing time is an hour later. My five minute

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, on Jan 25, at 1408. Usual
commercial announcement for Tecsun radios, laughing kookaburra,
"Waltzing Matilda" and full SA; pop songs; Australian singer Kylie
Minogue with "Locomotion," etc.; 1431-1446 international news
(many items about US president, N. Korea, Russia, etc.); best in LSB.

5055, Radio 4KZ. Best in USB; 1359-1404*, Jan 25. Elton John song;
news till suddenly off the air.

INDIA. Regarding my eve of Republic Day reception (Jan 25) -
very much appreciate feedback from Gautam Kumar Sharma
(Abhayapuri, Assam, India), which confirms many of my observations:

"Thanks for your observations on reception quality of AIR Regional
Stations specially from the North East. Yes, AIR-Shillong is now
heard with low intensity audio level..(i.e.perhaps low modulation)
on 4970kHz...as I regularly aircheck in the morning 0030-0330 utc..
And also with slight rough audio. Both AIR-Aizawl on 5050kHz &
AIR-Kursong on 4895kHz are not heard here from a long time. As
posted by me in DX India Yahoo Groups..recently AIR-Gangtok on
4835kHz was heard with strong hum and as per my latest monitoring
now it was off the air. As reported earlier in DX Circles...AIR-Chennai
was noted with strong hum for a few days but it was rectified within
a very short time. Now the most consistence reception giving AIR
Regional Shortwave Station is AIR-Jeypore on 5040kHz.."

Jan 26, noted that AIR Gangtok (4835) seemed back to normal at 1307,
with faint audio, but no transmitter hum. Yesterday clearly off the air.

5040, AIR Jeypore, 1218, Jan 26. Yet another day of live coverage from
South Africa of the India vs RSA cricket match; in English; later with
coverage in Hindi.

INDONESIA[and non-log]. 9525.95, VOI, Jan 26. Still off the air through
1117. Only active Indonesian SW station is Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya (3325),
heard Jan 26, at 1537, with indigenous music/chanting; mostly fair (Ron
Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. 6250, on Jan 26, at 1228, with Echo of Hope -
Voice of Hope in the clear (no jamming) with good signal; at *1230 hit with
the strong sign on of Echo of Unification.

KOREA NORTH. Seems the Olympic diplomacy is really working? On
Jan 26, at 1106, found about a 20 minute segment of no jamming at all on
3910, 3930, 3985, 5995, 6015, 6135, 6250, etc.; most of the S. Korea
stations had fair to good reception; jamming started about 1127 for most
frequencies, but for some reason didn't jam 3910, 3930 nor 3985. Again
at 1228+ had no jamming at all till *1244. In the past was extremely rare
to find these segments with no jamming, but now is almost a daily happening!

BTW - Hope to someday find 6135 free of jamming before 1500, so I can
check on Glenn Hauser's UNID (perhaps Madagascar).

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio. Had been very nice recently to have CRI
off the air here, leaving Myanmar in the clear, but Jan 25, CRI returned to
cause heavy QRM 1300+.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1138-1208*, Jan 26. Pop
Pacific Islands songs; DJ in Pidgin; 1202 usual bird call and NBC news
in English till suddenly off.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC. Jan 25, starting at 1257 with only
a carrier (no audio at all) till last check at 1516, during which had periods
of faint audio; very low modulation; playing pop songs; mostly unusable;
greatly extended schedule today (past 1200*).

level audio; segment in English 1444-1459, with pop songs; REO
Speedwagon "Keep on Loving You," a Rolling Stones song, etc.;
several clear mentions of "All India Radio"; 1500-1512 non-stop
solo sitar instrumental music; 1512 start of the New Delhi audio
feed (tone, followed by commercial announcements); 1515 news
in Hindi. This past week there were days they were clearly not
broadcasting, while other days had strong hum from their transmitter,
so great to find them doing so well today.

Still a challenge to hear this, but today was one of their best days, as
normally they are well below threshold level audio. Details very similar
to these that Bruce Churchill reported in DXLD 16-36, during the same
time period:

" .... Surprised to hear English program at 1430 to 1459 with woman
announcer intro (滴ello all you beautiful people out there・his is・br>Gangtok・oday we will be talking about・) followed by intro instrumental/
vocal music piece. Talk on women痴 equality in education and society. Pop
vocal/instrumental music selections in between talk segments. Back to
vernacular at 1459.5 with man and local instrumental music. Commercials
at 1512-1515. Intermittent slight CWQRM on 4836. Have logged Sikkim
from this site before but in the Dec/Jan time frame and with QRM from
ABC. From this site Gangtok was one of the predominant carrier indications
on 60 mb." (via remote Perseus site in E. Finland, on Sept 1, 2016).

My audio today of faint SA and soft sitar music at http://goo.gl/Evp6dG

Nothing after 1300 on 7260 kHz. Maybe they try to run the transmitter in the morning, but it always fails?

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1101-1139*, on Jan 31.
Not on the air every day! Monologue in Pidgin and pop songs;
moderate RRI QRM; suddenly cut off.

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio. On Feb 1, from 1500 to 1525, with
Chinese and English; American mother talking about how she taught
her kids from an early age to learn Chinese; the movie "Greatest
Showman" being released today across China; sound bites from the
movie along with song from the movie "Never Enough."

Jan 30, BBR, 1505-1525. In Chinese, but playing Bobby Darin - "Mack
the Knife," Frank Sinatra - "Fly Me To The Moon," Ray Charles - "Georgia
On My Mind" and Chubby Checker - "Let's Twist Again"; fair; always ending
this segment with "See you next time."

6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1143-1200*, Jan 31. In Chinese.
Their normal format is playing a variety of music, not just Chinese songs;
most commonly cuts off at 1201*, as I have often reported. BBS (Bhutan)
on the other hand from 1100 to 1200 is in English and 1130+ normally plays
pop hit songs in English. No BBS heard today.

INDIA. 5010, AIR Thiruvananthapuram // 5040, AIR Jeypore, 1327+,
Feb 1. Again with live coverage of the India vs RSA cricket match from
South Africa; in English and Hindi; mostly fair reception both frequencies.

McCartney & Stevie Wonder - "Ebony and Ivory," Billy Joel - "Just the
Way You Are," Diana Ross & Lionel Richie - "Endless Love," Stevie
Wonder - "I Just Called To Say I Love You" (unusual segment!); in
Bahasa Indonesia; 1504 "RRI Palangkaraya" SA and ad for iPhone; fair.
Still is the only active Indonesian SW station.

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. 6250, on Jan 26, at 1229. More diplomacy
in action? No jamming from the north! Sign on of Echo of Unification with
distinctive IS; stronger than Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope. My audio at
http://goo.gl/xAx6SJ . Very nice to finally hear EOU's IS for the first time,
as normally the jamming from the north totally covers it!

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1506, Jan 31. Ends their
audio; keeps transmitter on till starting audio again about 1552; strong
carrier. This is their daily format of not turning off transmitter.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1253, on Wednesday, Jan 31.
Language lesson "Say It In English"; a nervous "Tom" meets his future
in-laws and knocks over a coffee table, etc.; mostly fair.

Also on Jan 31, VOA special English program "Top Technology Stories
of 2017," at 1544; audio streaming and transcript at http://goo.gl/kqKfFF .
A repeat of last Wed. show.

fair. Probably on the weekend they just run repeat shows 1500-1525

FIJI. 558, Radio Fiji One (presumed), 1211-1221, on Feb 3. A rare
day with audio above threshold level; was already Sunday in Suva, so
mostly religious songs with somechatting in language that sounded
right to be Fiji; poor due to the normally strong San Francisco QRM
from 560 (KSFO). My poor quality audio at http://goo.gl/sB62CK

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk.Feb3 (Saturday),noted on
the air before 0300; at 0500 time pips and ended audio, with transmitter off

JAPAN[non-log]. 5006, HFD Radio Station JG2XA. For a long time
now (since early last year?) this frequency has been silent of their CW
broadcasting. Recently noted 8006 is also silent now of CW. Must not
be on SW any longer? Seems their former website is also no longer
active. In the past these low powered stations (200 watts) carried out
the HF-Doppler (HFD) Project and were heard almost daily by me here
on the west coast. So the project has been completed or they ran out
of funds? (Feb 5)

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1212-1225, Feb 5. The Monday

meeting is very important. Don't miss the train"; Tom works for a company that

on time for anything"; he missed the train and then rushes to take a taxi to the
airport to catch the 8:00 plane to Manchester; 1227 end of "Say It In English";

Very nice, Ron-san.
eQSL from Russia is really rare, isn't it?
I think that it is amazing for that.

Amano

I'm coming to Hokkaido right now.
I will summarize the broadcast heard yesterday.

- - - - - Amano's log:

KOREA SOUTH. 9885, National Unified Broadcasting, *1200-, on Feb 7.
I confirmed that it moved from 7530 kHz to 9885 kHz.

KOREA NORTH. 3945, EOU, 1430-1431*, on Feb 7.
I heard EOU's end announcement and confirmed that I have not announced 3945 kHz yet.
My audio at http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4126.mp3

CHINA. 837, CCTV News Channel, 1645-1705, on Feb 7.
I confirmed the SA/ID of CCTV News Channel at 837 kHz at 1655 and 1700.
The SA/ID in Chinese of CCTV News Channel is "Zhongyang dianshitai Xinwen Pindao".
Is Harbin News Radio relaying CCTV-13 sound?
My audio at http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4127.mp3

KOREA NORTH. 819, KCBS, -1828*,on Feb 7.
KCBS of each SW band c/off after the end of the broadcast,
but the 819 kHz KCBS doesn't c/off and a mysterious signal is started.
Perhaps, I think that it is jamming after the end of the broadcast.
My audio at http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/img/3032.mp3

CHINA. 927, Liaoning Village Radio, 1845-1903,on Feb 7.

Hello! Ron-san and Hiroyuki.

I also heard the 2018 Winter Pyeongchang Olympics opening ceremony in the 972 kHz to 1200 UTC.
I have not confirmed, but I think probably that VOF relayed KBS.
972 kHz Since I was concerned about the Chinese language heard behind while receiving it, I checked it later.

- - - - - Amano's log:

CHINA. 972, Harbin Economic Radio, 1225-1235, on Feb 9.
I heard Chinese when KBS is null.
After listening for a while,
I was able to confirm
the SA/ID "Haerbin jingji guangbo FM ba-ba-jiu ni de caifu RADIO".

I could confirm by mmww(Chinese DXer)'s followers.

RUSSIA. 5940, Radio Rossii Kamchatka, assume via the Yelizovo transmitter site on
the Kamchatka peninsula; 0240-0300*, Feb 14. Very poor reception, with QRM from what
sounded like IBRA Media, Radio Sadaye Zindagi, via Al Dhabayya; OM & YL chatting

so I presume this was "Radio Rossii Kamchatka," as it fits their former schedule. The
0300* cut off happened in mid-sentence.

ETHIOPIA[non]. 11575, Radio OMN (Oromia Media Network),
on Feb 14. Was today a clever ploy to fool the folks jamming from
Ethiopia? If so, it worked! At *1600, instead of Radio OMN
programming, the jammers in Ethiopia instead heard Dr. Terry
Alan Cooper, a forensic psychologist, being interviewed in
English, about solitary confinement. So the jammers must have
assumed Radio OMN was not on today and left, whereas later
(by 1609), Radio OMN had in fact started up; in vernacular with
many SAs; fair. No jamming heard at all, up till I tuned away at
1618.

Hi Ron,

Indeed, at the very beginning the announcer says:
Kamchatka Radio will continue at (12? 13? 19?) hours 10 minutes, and
now please listen to Radio Rossii.

Looks like the activity is related to the 18 March presidential elections,
so it will be no more after that date.

next year on the Bougainville independence referendum, for autonomy;
comparing many different islands (Cook Islands, Solomon Islands, Puerto

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, on Feb 17 (Saturday), at 1107 with
Lulu - "To Sir With Love"; at 1112 with Cliff Richard - "We Don't Talk
Anymore"; noted many breaks for ads and seemed like station promos;
almost readable. The problem for me today was with improved signal
from Australia, I also had stronger than usual QRM from China (BBR)
on 5050, even in USB.

A new weekend schedule? Checking today (Feb 17), at 1255+, found
them off the air. Weekdays had recently noted 1405*, within a minute
or two either way.

CHINA. 4900 // 4940, Voice of Strait, 1302, Feb 16. Live annual coverage
of the Chinese New Year's Eve (Spring Festival) Gala; CCTV audio feed,
with comedy skits, musical selections, etc., from Beijing. The start of China's
most important holiday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeRi86DcfyA ,
video of gala starts about 37:30.

Checked almost all the Chinese SW stations for this gala coverage, but only
found these two VOS frequencies carrying it. A disappointment to me, as in
past years I enjoyed the gala on a wide variety of stations.

RUSSIA. 5940.0, Radio Rossii Kamchatka, heard again Feb 15 (Thursday).
0245-0248 & 0256 till end of audio at 0259, with musical segments; 0300-0303
with test tone going on and off till transmitter off at 0303. A different format
than I heard Feb 13, as tonight there was no ID nor time pips; seemed to
be in Russian; some QRM from Radio Sadaye Zindagi.

Conforming to their schedule of being off the air on the weekend, observed
no signal from Kamchatka, Saturday (Feb 17). Noted on 5940.0, from 0238
till cut off at 0259*, with assume IBRA Media, Radio Sadaye Zindagi, via Al
Dhabayya; language and music sounded correct to be them; some QRM
from Brazil on the low side.

ZAMBIA. 5915, ZNBC/Radio One, 0418, Feb 15. Nice "GOtv, live it, love it"
promo in English and vernacular. Always love hearing these ads in English!

no news at 1100, but at 1200 the start of the news before they cut

Thanks to Glenn for the timely alert! Carrier on-off and on again at

seemed to be in German, local language and English; "Hello. This

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, Feb 22, from 1105
to 1140, with talks in Pidgin; many mentions of "the people of
Bougainville," "leadership of Bougainville," "Prime Minister,"
"referendum," "Papua New Guinea," etc; 1140-1200 DJ in Pidgin
with music show; 1200 news and "NBC Radio" promos till 1207*
cut off.

Certainly this station is going all out to provide the citizens with
the necessary info to make an informed vote next year for the
Bougainville referendum to decide on independence. Now being
heard almost daily with segments dealing with the referendum,
either in English or Pidgin.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait. For several years now, I have found
it fairly common during the annual Spring (lunar new year) Festival
to find some Chinese SW stations with anomalies. During the long
holiday, many Chinese are off from work and like to travel, so unusual
things sometimes happen on SW.

Feb 24 (Saturday), would normally have the "Focus on China" English
program 1500-1530, but not so today; tuned in at 1438 to hear the audio
feed from the CCTV production about the Qinghai Tibet Plateau in English;
audio feed ended at 1455 and into just Chinese, so not the normal exit
English format for "Focus on China." Will probably be back to normal in
a few weeks time. Today 1500+ with Chinese music show.

BTW - Feb 24, found 1200-1300 not // for 4900 & 4940, as I had recently
heard VOS.

ETHIOPIA [non]. 11575, Radio OMN (Oromia Media Network). Feb 23
(Friday), heard the transmitter turned on at 1555; programming in vernacular
started at ToH; tuned away at 1610 and there was still no jamming at all;
fair-good reception. 11600 silent and didn't note what was happening on
11595, which was heard Feb 24 by Glenn Hauser, et al., as probably the
new // frequency (ex: 11600).

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1538, Feb 24 (Saturday). Segment
in English; "This is Myanmar Radio. Now you can hear the weather";
children singing "Let there be Peace on Earth"; 1543-1553 the usual
Sat program "Voice of ASEAN," telling some of the history of ASEAN
and of their various conferences held in ASEAN countries; played pop
songs (Fleetwood Mac - "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow," etc.).

Found the following info on-line, with very positive comments about the
use of radio (my emphasis):

"This new ASEAN in Action (AiA) spin-off project aims to sustain as well as
strengthen the knowledge of ASEAN in the target areas. It is the re-branding
of the twenty year old AiA radio project produced and broadcast by the radio
station of all the ASEAN Member States (AMS) but with enhanced features.
Taking into consideration that radio is the most efficient media, it has a
strategic and vast potential in helping the overall development of each
of the AMS. Thus, by means of combining traditional and new media in
enhancing the project, radio can play a more active and constructive role
in promoting the goals of ASEAN and continue promoting greater
awareness and understanding among the people of ASEAN and beyond.
Entitled 天oice of ASEAN ・Beyond Boundaries・(VoA-BB), this spin-off
project will comprise the annual production of one infotainment radio
programme each by all ten ASEAN member states (AMS) of 15 ・30
minute duration focusing on the 18 ・30 year age group for broadcast
first in its own country then exchanged for broadcast in the other AMS to
enhance awareness about ASEAN among ASEAN citizens and beyond
ASEAN boundaries. Radio is again the chosen medium of this project
because it is still generally considered fast, cheap and easily accessible
mean to disseminate information to the people."

so another abbreviated broadcast. Thunderstorms in the area?

5045 (Ozy Radio), not heard March 1, nor was anything on 4835 (AIR

recently on the air rather erratically.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1120-1201*, March 1. DJ

NBC Madang (3260) not broadcasting March 1, at the same time period.

CHINA. 6115 & 9505, Voice of Strait. Another anomaly or a possible
schedule change? Heard March 1, at 1204 & 1257. Normally, as recently
observed, they would have switched to 4900 & 4940 at about 1200, but
not today. Heard 4900 with *1304, while 4940 was already on at 1303.
Needs more monitoring to determine if this is a real time change of

Shortwave radio started in Yakutia. On the territory of today's 27 districts
will begin broadcasting on short wave. It will cover a total area of 2.5 million
square kilometers, an area that is 78% of the territory of Yakutia. On receipt
of the signal at the ceremony launching the transmitters have reported the head
of the Anabar, Olenek areas. Recall that in 2010, short-wave broadcasting in the
country has been suspended, and until now the signal is fed through fm transmitters
and acted only in towns. But with the launch of shortwave radio Yakut are now able
to listen to fishermen, hunters and people leading a nomadic life outside the
settlements.

May 7, heard R. Sakha on 7295 (very weak the whole
time) // 7345 which was many times stronger; 7345
had poor to almost fair reception. Heard with no QRM
on either frequency. Easy to ID with distinctive IS and
also "Radio Sakha" IDs. Here are today's highlights:

0852: Decent level open carrier.

0900: Brief IS (Jew's harp); 3 time pips ; announcers for
about 10 minutes (news?); assume in Russian (or at
times today in Yakut [a.k.a. Sakha]?).

0909-1000: Very nice music program (ballads, pop songs,
etc.). 0950 clear "Radio Sakha" ID; 0957-1000: musical
montage.

1000: time pips; announcer (news?)

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, 1056-1126 & 1151-1235 
on May 10. Sounded like Russian; 1100 brief IS
(Jew's harp); time pips; seemed to be the news being
read for 10 minutes; 1105 break for "Radio Sakha" ID
by different announcer; 1110 ad or promo and into
music show playing ballads. This station plays a lot
of nice music!

Did not sign off at 1200 as they recently had been
reported, but clearly continued on; same format as
after 1100 (seemed to be the news being read for
10 minutes; 1205 break for "Radio Sakha" ID by
different announcer; 1210 ad or promo and into
music show).

From 1151 to 1235 had increasing QRM from Thazin
Radio (Myanmar), but Radio Sakha was stronger. At
1158 had to go to LSB, to get away from V26 Chinese
numbers station that was on frequency in USB. Unable
to tell about 7295 due to OTH radar the few times I did
check.

Thanks very much to Mauno Ritola for the following:

"I also checked this today and they continued until 1400.
7345 kHz much stronger than 7295 kHz both here and via
Japan remote rx, so probably the reported powers should are
vice versa: 250 kW on 7345 kHz and 100 (or even 50 kW?)
on 7295 kHz."

Have to agree with him regarding the power. 7345 has always
been heard many times stronger than 7295.

7345, Radio Sakha, 1200-1235, May 13. Brief IS (Jew's harp);
five time pips; moderate QRM seemed to be from CRI(?), but
surprisingly they were off the air 1202-1219, leaving R. Sakha
with a nice signal in the clear. CNR1 continues silent here.

reception. My audio with Radio Sakha in the clear 0:00-02:00,

Re: RUSSIA : NBC Sakha - Yakutsk, 7295kHz, 7345kHz Ron Howard - May 13, 2016 19:38 UTC No.1354
Upon further reflection, after listening to more of my recordings
today and helpful input from Glenn and Wolfy, I can now say that
the station causing QRM for R. Sakha was clearly not CRI,
but was in fact Thazin Radio. My recording at 1235 had Thazin
Radio much stronger than R. Sakha and they played some
indigenous music that conformed to Myanmar music.

Thanks to Glenn and Wolfy for their kind assistance.

May 16, at 1224, found that a strong CNR1 has again returned

https://goo.gl/gmwRZz at 1:23 you can hear the audio starting for CNR1,

Re: RUSSIA : NBC Sakha - Yakutsk, 7295kHz, 7345kHz Ron Howard - Sep 07, 2016 14:45 UTC No.1600
RUSSIA. 7295, R. Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1026-1101, Sept 6. Pop 
songs; 1051 usual "Radio Sakha" ID, along with ads; ToH Jew's
Harp IS and time pips; almost fair. 7295 the stronger transmitter,
with // 7345 much weaker.

5900, Radio Rossii, via presumed Vladivostok, *1000, Sept 6.
Transmitter suddenly on and audio quickly followed; strong OTH
radar (later off); news in Russian with sound bites; 1010 usual
"Radio Rossii" ID; traditional Russian song; their national network.

1103 news (no OTH radar); 1110 usual "Radio Rossii" ID; pop hit
song (sounded like a Prince song); their national network.

Radio Rossii Primorye: by 1250 good signal strength but had
intermittent crackling (assume their transmitter); 1257 not the
usual Radio Rossii ID, but instead the unique ID of "Radio
Rossii Primorye"; ToH time pips and usual "Radio Rossii" ID;
1300 into their national network.

So 1210 to 1300 is indeed local programming (not the national
network), which conforms nicely with Sei-ichi Hasegawa (Japan)
posting (thanks very much Sei-ichi):

"Radio Rossii Premor'e Local Px at 1210-1300UT on 5900kHz
via ???(Khabarovsk). As ID "V efire Radio Rossii Primor'e".
It seems to be a special service of the flood damage by typhoon
"Lionrock"."

My audio of ID through ToH today at http://goo.gl/UEOJFj .

Special thanks to Mauno Ritola for his Russian linguistic assistance
yesterday. I never would have made the connect from my hearing
"radio companion Vladivostok" to the actual correct ID of
"Gosudarstvennaya Teleradiokompania Vladivostok". Well done!

Non-stop monologue 1231-1247; followed by pop songs; local
"Radio Rossii Primorye" SA/IDs at 1250, 1253 and 1257; fair-good.

Russian elections and Radio Rossii

Sept 18, elections held to vote in 450 seats of the
Russian lower chamber of the parliament and also
vote in many regional and municipal elections.

Full story: http://goo.gl/FcmcPf

"Special measures were also taken so elections could
be successfully held in the Russian Far East region of
Primorsky Krai [informally known as Primorye, with
administrative center at the city of Vladivostok - Ron],
which borders China. It was hit by severe flooding not
long before the elections and more than 20,000 people
were affected by the disaster. Ballots were delivered to the
settlements hit by the deluge by the Russian Emergency
Ministry (EMERCOM) in special vehicles along with
humanitarian aid."

Sept 17 & 18, during 1210-1300, was only hearing the
national network programs for "Radio Rossii" on 5900;
mostly music programs and many songs in English
(Queen with "Bohemian Rhapsody," etc.); many "Radio
Rossii" IDs. So no more local "Radio Rossii Primorye"
programs after Sept 15.

RTRS provided SW and SW broadcasting regions of Primorye,
which because of the typhoon was interrupted broadcasting
of television programs

09/19/2016
August 31, 2016 an emergency due to a typhoon was introduced
in the Primorsky Territory. According to the information of
the main emergency department in the Primorsky Territory, the
most affected by the typhoon settlements Kavalerovo,
Chuguevsky and Terneisky area.

Technological network RTRS in the Primorye Territory has
156 objects of digital terrestrial television. TV and
radio broadcasting coverage is more than 99% population
of the province. Automatic network monitoring system
allowed to respond quickly to emerging issues and to
monitor the effects of weather events on television
and radio broadcasting facilities. Key objects RTRS
ensure continuity of the broadcast media.

However, the power supply of a number of objects have
been interrupted as a result of the typhoon. Without
air television were 45 settlements or 33 thousand.
Residents (1.9% of the territory).

Less than a day RTRS branch "Seaside KRTPTS" reopen
powerful transmitters broadcasting, carried out
functional test engineering and technical systems.
From 18:00 (MSK) organized on September 2 broadcast
of the program "Radio of Russia" with inserts STRC
"Vladivostok" in the midrange. 03:00 (MSK) 3 September
began broadcasting in the HF band. MW and SW broadcasts
covered the entire territory of Primorsky Krai.

Information about this brought to the Emergency
Situations Ministry and the regional administration.

Works were carried out in close cooperation with
the Situation Centre Roskomnadzor.

To ensure power supply de-energized objects as
restore road communications branch RTRS mobilized
mobile diesel generator sets and emergency prevention
group. An additional measure was the transfer of
mobile complexes of the Khabarovsk Territory.

As of 4:00 am (MSK) 17th September 2016 the work
of all the objects RTRS network restored in full.
Broadcasting in MW and SW bands scheduled to continue
for another week.

Primorsky branch RTRS restore the broadcasting of all objects

09/21/2016
RTRS Branch "Primorsk KRTPTS" restored full operation of all
facilities-air television and radio broadcast, affected by the
typhoon "Layonrok". Employees seaside RTRS branch in emergency
situations conducted repair work and checked the signal parameters.
All transmission means working in normal mode, broadcast quality
meets the legal standards. At the moment, there is still no road
connection with 10 communication objects, according to the
satellite-based monitoring system, their work is not compromised
and is being broadcast teleradiosignala.

In this regard, RTRS stopped broadcasting "Radio Russia" programs
on medium and short waves on the night of 22 to 23 of September.

We recall that on 31 August, after the devastation inflicted by
the typhoon and the introduction of emergency in the region, less
than a day RTRS reopen powerful transmitters broadcasting, carried
out functional test engineering and technical systems and began
to broadcast "Radio Russia" in HF and SW bands in Primorye Territory.

RUSSIA. Radio Rossii via Vladivostok. Has been
great fun recently to be able to again hear "Radio
Rossii" on SW and a first for me, to hear the local
programs of "Radio Rossii Primorye."

This came about due to two events: cyclone "Lionrock,・
which battered the Primorye region and the national/
regional elections. As the elections are over, it is no
surprise they are now closing down the MW and SW
operations, but maybe now people in government will
take notice that there is still a vital use for SW.

5900, Radio Rossii, on Sept 21 (1110-1124); "Radio
Rossii" ID at the end of the news; pops songs (The
Beatles with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," etc.);
audio better and stronger than the last few days, but
still with audio hum.

Hiroyuki-san,

Years ago I often enjoyed listening to Radio Rossii - Kamchatka, from
0710+, with fairly good reception (per my 2013 audio http://goo.gl/E6duVA).

Jan 29 (Monday), at 0710+, I checked 5940, for possible reception, but
clearly not on the air at that time. In past years they were always not
broadcasting on Saturday or Sunday.

and thanks KONSU (Japan) !!
Our japanese website : http://radio.chobi.net/bbs/?res:8271#8321

SA at 2100 ( http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/img/2974.mp3 ) sounded like :
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Камчатская радио продолжить свою работу в 13:10.
А сейчас слушаете Радио России.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pronunciation:
Kamchatskaya radio prodolzhit' svoyu rabotu v 13:10.
A seychas slushayete Radio Rossii.

Mean :
Kamchatka radio to continue its work at 13:10.
And now you are listening to Radio of Russia.

RUSSIA. 5940, Radio Rossii Kamchatka, assume via the Yelizovo transmitter site on
the Kamchatka peninsula; 0240-0300*, Feb 14. Very poor reception, with QRM from what
sounded like IBRA Media, Radio Sadaye Zindagi, via Al Dhabayya; OM & YL chatting
(in Russian?); 0259 music. Positive "Radio Rossii" SAs before and after 0300 time pips,
so I presume this was "Radio Rossii Kamchatka," as it fits their former schedule. The
0300* cut off happened in mid-sentence.

Have been monitoring this due to recent reports of Kamchatka testing here, made by
Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) and Dave Valko (USA). Thanks also for the assistance
of Mauno Ritola (Finland).

It is likely to be broadcast at the following times :

1900-1930 * unconfirmed
2010-2100 ** Confirmed in January 2018.
(2100-2200 ** relay of Radio Rossii, Confirmed in January 2018)
0110-0300 ** Confirmed in January 2018.
0910-1000 * unconfirmed

... Radio Rossii 's central station may broadcast the broadcast at other times than the above.
(for example : 2100-2200)

765 kHz Russian station. --- Amano - Feb 11, 2018 10:21 UTC No.3042
RUSSIA. 765, Russian station, 1100-1200*, on Feb 10.
I heard Russian at this frequency.
I thought it was Radio Vostok Rossii and waited for SA/ID.
I heard "Radio ???" after 1100.
I could not hear "Radio Vostok Rossii".

What did he actually say?
I uploaded the recording below.
He says "Radio ???" after 00:12.

Please tell me if you can hear it.

USA. 850, KICY, 1002-1003, on Feb 10.
I received KICY with built-in bar antenna only using ICF-7600GR in Hokkaido.
Sync on USB firmly locked synchronous detection.
Radio waves in Alaska were received very well.
This time was a Russian program.
I recorded the SA/ID of "KICY, Nome".

Re: Africa - Asia - Pacific DX log (13) Ron Howard - Oct 30, 2017 03:36 UTC No.2687
ANGOLA. 4949.74, R. Nacional de Angola, 0228-0405+, Oct 29.
Audio above threshold level, but heavy QRN (static). Highlights:

0228-0300: Pop songs.
0300-0302: Time pips; brief news headlines; several SAs.
0304-0400: Religious program; several segments of preaching,
but mostly non-stop religious songs. This on a Sunday.
0400: Time pips; news with several breaks for SAs.

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, on Oct 29. As usual the "Waltzing
Matilda" (WM) modulation was stronger than the rest of the broadcast.
WM noted at 1130, 1230, 1259, 1305 & 1359. At 1300 time pips; YL
with news, with several sound bites, but unreadable; break during the
news to play WM. At times was close to being readable, but needs
somewhat better propagation for that.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, Oct 29. Better than usual
due to no noticeable QRM from RRI Palangkaraya (just a carrier heard
after NBC went off); NBC cut off 1147*.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260) cut off at 1205*, on Oct 29, after what
sounded like religious songs (on a Sunday).

CHINA. 7260, CRI, in Japanese. Oct 29, with the start of the B17
schedule, Radio Vanuatu is now totally blocked 1100-1257 by this
powerhouse.

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, RNGE, R. Bata, with Oct 29 anomaly.
Definite carrier heard at 0415; checking on & off till 0531. Had a very
decent carrier the whole time and quiet conditions, but no audio detected.
This is the earliest I have ever heard their presumed signal.

Helpful feedback from Manuel M駭dez: "heard R Bata at 0459 UTC with
very very weak signal, songs and comments, barely audible." [Oct 29]

KOREA NORTH[non]. Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata, on Oct 29,
found ex 6040 silent; no jamming and no Shiokaze; went looking for
them 1300+, but unable to find them. Where did they move to?

U S A. 4875-USB, Air Force MARS net, 1206+, Oct 29. This is a
Sunday only net at this time period; net managed by the usual AFF4FL
and he had good reception, while the others in the net only faintly heard.

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, on Oct 29, during a few quick checks;
found they definitely lost the audio from time to time about 0345.




Re: Voice of Indonesia in Dutch Ron Howard - Oct 30, 2017 23:42 UTC No.2688
INDONESIA. 9524.94, VOI, on Oct 30, with anomaly. 1300-1400
no English, but instead in Dutch. Thanks very much to Wolfie, who
confirmed my audio clip is in fact Dutch. Today had pre-1300 with
the usual Japanese and post-1400 was the normal Indonesian. My
audio at http://goo.gl/YHiWPf . Reception much better than usual,
but with some audio hum.

Was this a one day anomaly or is it a real change to their language
schedule? What happened to their segment in English (ex: 13-14)?
Needs more monitoring!

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (13) Ron Howard - Oct 31, 2017 00:06 UTC No.2689

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1200-1210, on Oct 30. News/sports;
getting closer to being semi-readable.

CHINA. 6155, CNR2, on Oct 30, at 1337. For many years China
Business Radio (CNR2) had sole possession of this frequency, but
no longer so. Today heard very strong QRM from UNID. Is it the
new schedule of AIR here? Needs more time spent here to ID the
UNID.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Monday, Oct 30. This
weeks adventures of "Tom" found him at London airport looking for
parking at "terminal three," so he could pick up his "Aunt Jennifer,"
who was arriving from Sydney. The Monday and Wednesday saga
continues, hi. As usual, the "Say It In English" program was very
readable (1218-1231).

TIBET[non]. 6010, CNR-11 (Tibetan Service), via Baoji-Sifangshan,
1420, Oct 30. In Tibetan and // 7350, which was considerably stronger.
It was back in 2010 this service formerly carried the "Holy Tibet" show
in English. Wish they would bring it back again!


Re: Africa - Asia - Pacific DX log (13) Ron Howard - Oct 31, 2017 06:13 UTC No.2690
KOREA NORTH[non]. new 7410, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata.
On Oct 29 & 30 went looking for ex: 6040 (which was silent of both
Shiokaze and also the N. Korean jamming), at 1300+, but without any
success.

Hiroshi explains why - Shiokaze moved to 7410. This is the frequency
of the powerhouse CRI, so will be difficult to make out much, if anything,
from Shiokaze. A sad situation! They made the same mistake last year.
Hard to believe they did it again.

PHILIPPINES. new 17700, R. Pilipinas, ex:12010, at 0200, on Oct 31.
Choral anthem; time pip (about one minute late); SA; sound bites from
various past presidents; 0205 擢rom the presidential palace Manila,
Dateline Malacang,・info about the current activities of the government;
0220 "From the News Center of Radio Pilipinas. This is the PBS News":
// 15640 & 17820, with 17700 being the strongest. My audio at
http://goo.gl/6iQDoo .

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, 0301-0307, Oct 31, with reciting
from the Qur'an (good audio); 0307+ animated monologue. No
problems noted through 0310. Re-checked at 0402 to also find
good audio, with the news; better than normal reception, but heavy
QRN (static).

Interesting that Bill Bingham (RSA) found ZBC today at a time when
they were still having problems, so very much still a hit-or-miss operation
on this frequency. Thanks to Bill for his continuing monitoring!

"6015 Zanzibar, ZBC Radio, Dole. Oct 31, 2017 Tuesday. 0315-0357.
Swahili, OM talking at 0315. Mentioned 纏anzibar・at 0316. Lost audio
at about 0330, still not back as of 0357. Fair while it lasted. Jo'burg

signed off at 1401*, leaving EOU in the clear, but fairly weak signal;
in Korean; broadcasting from DPRK to ROK. The EOU website,

ETHIOPIA. 6090, Amhara State Radio, 0250, Nov 3. Caribbean

Radio Oromiya IS; at 0256 heard the start of the Amhara State
Radio IS, which was weak and mixing well underneath the Radio
Oromiya IS, which ended at 0259, leaving the Amhara State Radio
IS in the clear till 0300.

Certainly something strange is happening either at the studio or transmitter
site. See Glenn's insightful comments in DXLD 17-41. My audio of one
minute of Radio Oromiya IS in the clear and then Amhara State Radio IS
in the clear, at http://goo.gl/R6CUyX .

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, 0302-0330, Nov 3. Today noted no problem

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1141-1203*,
Nov 8. Discussion in Pidgin; pop songs; almost no RRI
QRM today, so reception above the norm.

BTW - NBC Madang, on 3260; noted NBC news in English
at 1204; at 1207, after the news, went straight to indigenous,
repetitive singing (not the usual pop songs); 1210* cut off;
poor.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1138+, Nov 8.
Only the VOF carrier (no audio at all), as well as the usual
North Korean jamming here.

Former VOF ex-frequencies today:

5940 - Clear frequency.
6020 - Only Vietnam.
6045 - Clear frequency.
6135 - Still with white noise N. Korea jamming, even though
VOF has not been here for a long time now.

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, on Nov 13, heard with
the strongest signal ever noted here, but unfortunately on
a day when there was very heavy OTH radar; 1133 & 1255.
Without the OTH radar, believe the news would have been
fairly readable, as the Ozy signal was that strong.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1130,
Nov 13. Nice English & Chinese SA - "S W liu(6) ling(0)
san(3) wu(5). Yunnan Radio and Television International,
the Voice Shangri-la"; 1201*. No BBS/Bhutan here today.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. On Nov 13,
again found their programming out of sync from the normal
timing, for this one hour program that is repeated every hour;
instead of the usual bell/gong being rung slowly three times
at 1203, today was at 1210; OTH radar QRM (not N. Korea
jamming!).

5920, Voice of Freedom. On Nov 13, at 1203, almost fair,
even with the usual light North Korea jamming.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1212-1225, Nov 13.
English language lesson program "Say It In English" starts
and ends with same theme music; today Tom's Aunt Jennifer
and Kate go to the cinema to see "Monsters From Outer
Space"; Aunt Jennifer takes the wrong bus and calls Tom to
come and pick her up; the Monday and Wednesday tales
continue and are fairly readable.

Nov 17. Finally heard the program SA in English, after
looking for it for many weeks; 鏑adies and gentlemen,
Haiyang live show"; given during the comedy/variety
program in Chinese, which program is often heard.
Very pleased to find they still use this SA.

VIETNAM. 6020, Voice of Vietnam, program 4 (ethnic
minority languages service), via Dac Lac, 1241+, Nov 18.
Non-stop repetitive indigenous chanting; in vernacular.
VOV4 website (Google translation) http://goo.gl/j9p6e4 .
Reception stronger than normal.

Dac Lac province is located in the Central Highlands and
has many indigenous people there who are not ethnically
Vietnamese.

So it would seem that NBC Bougainville has for a long
time now discontinued the use of this frequency. I last
heard them here at 0642*, back on June 3, 2016. Don't
recall seeing any reported receptions of NBC after June,
2016, on 6020?

VOV, 9839.8 // 12019.2, at 1139, on Nov 18. In English;

KOREA SOUTH. 5857.5-USB. For a long time
now I have checked here almost daily and always
hear HLL2 Seoul, with the weather in different
languages. Significant anomaly on Nov 22, with
what seemed to be a mix up of an audio feed?

1241-1300: Weak audio feed of OM & YL alternately
reading numbers (not the usual HLL2 Seoul weather
audio feed).

1300: In addition to the audio feed of numbers, the
start of the normal weather info given in Korean by
HLL2 Seoul, which was much stronger that the reading
of the numbers.

Checked 1308-1330 to hear only a carrier (dead air) with
no audio feed at all; normally should have had a segment
of weather (HLL2 Seoul).

Due to this unique frequency and subsequent dead air (no
audio at all), can I safely assume the numbers audio feed
was in fact transmitted via HLL2 Seoul?

Weak audio of numbers being read, at http://goo.gl/pY4JTY .

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (13) Ron Howard - Dec 04, 2017 04:04 UTC No.2785
INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1237-1315, Dec 3. The usual Sunday
"Country Roads" C&W music show with DJ in English playing "I
Never Promised You A Rose Garden," "Everybody's Somebody's
Fool," "End Of The World," "Crying in the Chapel," "My Special
Angel," etc.; SA - "the North Eastern Service of All India Radio
broadcasting from Shillong"; poor to almost fair.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. On Dec 3, again
found their programming out of sync with their normal timing, for
this one hour program that is repeated again-and-again every hour;
instead of the usual bell/gong being rung slowly three times at 1203
and 1403, today was heard at 1219 & 1419; fair-good.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1148-1203*, Dec 3,
Sunday. Religious preaching and religious singing; no break at ToH;
cut off in mid-song; poor, but a rare day with above threshold level
audio.

BTW - What has happened to NBC Bougainville (3325)? Have not
heard them recently during my usual monitoring times (1115+). Are
they signing off earlier than before, when they went off about 1200,
or are they completely off the air?

Also on Dec 3, RRI Palangkaraya (3325) was silent for a second day
in a row; 1139-1420. No signal at all on 3325.

U S A. 4875-USB, Air Force MARS net, 1320, Dec 3. The regular
Sunday only net; managed by the usual AFF4FL, with a lot of traffic;
fair.

Re: NBC Bougainville Ron Howard - Dec 04, 2017 14:31 UTC No.2787
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville. How ironic! Yesterday I 
questioned their recent absence and today (Dec 4) they are back
on the air again; 1140-1158*; DJ in Pidgin playing pop Pacific Islands
songs; suddenly cut off. They picked the perfect time to start up again,
as RRI Palangkaraya continues to be off the air here (third consecutive
day!), so no QRM. Frequency totally clear post-1158.

At 1159, checked for NBC Madang (3260), but they were already off
the air.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, 1235-1243,
Dec 4. The Monday only SAARC (The South Asian Association
for Regional Cooperation) news bulletin in English; almost readable,
but QRM from CODAR and CNR1 were just a little bit too strong.

CHINA. 9410, CNR5, 1207, Dec 4. In Chinese and // 5925. Recent
log in WRTH Facebook - "Fu Hsing BS in Chinese from Kuanyin
transmitters, with a weak signal with frequent fading in and out heard
at 12:04," is highly suspect; Hiroyuki-san was also listening today to
CNR5. Here in California, Fu Hsing BS (Taiwan) is impossible to hear
on 9410, due to this strong CNR5. The Fu Hsing BS frequency of 9774
has been silent for a long time now, as I still check it almost daily during
my monitoring.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6085, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata,
continues to be free of any N. Korea jamming, which is still up on
ex: 7410; Dec 4 at 1321.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. On Dec 4, at 1303,
programming back in sync with bell/gong being rung slowly three
times; yesterday was out-of-sync. As usual this frequency is never
jammed by N. Korea; good reception.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1218-1232, Dec 4. Monday edition
of "Say It In English"; "Mr. Harris," Tom's boss, talks to him about being
late for work (he overslept) and wants Tom to go on a business trip to
Geneva, Switzerland; fairly readable.

Thanks very much to an early alert by Hiroyuki Komatsubara,
on Dec 6, noted the return to this former frequency; not jammed
by North Korea, which was still jamming ex: 5920; very good
reception 1059, per my audio at http://goo.gl/qYxhs7 . 1200-1400

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (13) Ron Howard - Dec 06, 2017 18:49 UTC No.2802
AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1225-1310, Dec 6. Mostly
pop songs ("All Out of Love," by the Australian duo Air Supply,
etc.), except for news 1231-1241 & 1300-1305, both with many
reports from out-of-the-studio/sound bites (not readable); at 1305
the usual format of first a commercial announcement for radio
receivers ("range of shortwave, AM ..... radios"), followed by
"Waltzing Matilda," followed by full SA.

CANADA. 6030, Calgary - CFVP relaying CKMX (AM 1060), 1346,
Dec 6. Their 100 watts doing well against 100kW of CNR1; SA "Funny
10-60 AM" and mentions of "Calgary."

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1326, Dec 6. Noticeably distorted audio.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1204-1213*, Dec 6. News
in English, followed by the audio feed of "NBC Radio" in English; suddenly
off; poor; running somewhat past their normal sign off time.

SOMALILAND. 7120, R. Hargeisa. Thanks to recent reports by Glenn
and Dave Valko, of this having better than normal audio levels, tuned in
at 1331 and yes, definitely in English; 1336 Leo Sayer's pop song "More
Than I Can Say"; 1339 into vernacular with series of three "Radio Hargeisa"
SAs; later playing HOA music; 1359 usual marching band National Anthem
till 1401*; poor; CW QRM. My audio http://goo.gl/eAgk3L . Rare for me to
hear them above threshold level for the English segment (1320-1340).

USA. 7505v, WRNO, 0354, Dec 11. Start of the one hour "multilingual"
show (mostly Chinese) called "Praise for Today" (have seen reports of this
as "Pray for Today"?); intro and exit briefly in English; for some reason, never
seems to start at ToH, but always before.

which has recently been silent); pleasantly surprised at 1216 to hear
the Jakarta news relay in Bahasa Indonesia, during which they also
ran a promo; longer than normal news segment; 1238-1239 ending
the news relay with the usual patriotic song 釘agimu Negeri・(For
You Our Country), followed by RRI jingle; poor.

Nice to have them back again! Several days ago I emailed the station
that I missed hearing them on SW and hoped they would return again
shortly. Today will write a follow up, thanking them for broadcasting
again via SW.

could hear reciting from the Qur'an (Zanzibar) underneath UNID. My
audio clip at http://goo.gl/Z8hr63 .

Thanks very much to Dave Valko for solving the identity of my UNID
that is now sadly causing QRM for Zanizibar from 0300 to 0345.
Email from Dave (Dec 13):

"I just downloaded Fergys lastest combined SW Skeds database posted
yesterday and CNR is listed on 6015 from 0000-0345 in Kazakh. In
HFCC. So that has to be it. Too bad it isn't anything more exotic. Yep,
6015 just went off at 0345. CNR."

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, Dec 12, come on about 0300. At 0302
could hear reciting from the Qur'an (Zanzibar) underneath CNR (China),

Re: Ozy Radio - best reception to date Ron Howard - Dec 13, 2017 15:43 UTC No.2844
AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio. On Dec 13, clearly the best reception
to date; 1128-1318; mostly pop songs; Australian rock 'n' roll band, the
Delltones, with "Get a Little Dirt On Your Hands," Australian pop band
Leonardo's Bride, with "Even When I'm Sleeping," the band originally
from New Zealand who moved to Australia, Split Enz, with "I Hope I
Never," etc.; many brief SAs ("Ozy Radio worldwide," etc.); news
segments (at 1204, 1239 & 1303 sound bites of Roy Moore, who lost
the Alabama election, saying "we also know that God is always in
control," etc.); several spots with commercial announcements for radio
receivers ("We have thousands of satisfied customers around the world.
So why not join them today?"), followed by laughing kookaburra, then
"Waltzing Matilda," followed by full ID; at 1316 heard my first Christmas
carol this year on SW ("Deck the Halls").

Am very pleased to have heard this very entertaining low powered station,
with such a good signal. My audio at http://goo.gl/ELrjYv .

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1530-1559, Dec 15, Friday. In
English with the news (Myanmar's President meeting with Japanese
Prime Minister, in Japan, etc.) and the weather.

It was back in Dec 2014, at 1540, that I first heard Myanmar broadcasting
NKH's production of "Friends Around the World." Have enjoyed many such
programs over the years. Therefore was surprised this Friday, at 1540, to
hear instead the "Friday evening music program" with music from different
cultures (songs from Argentina) till 1553; then "Panoramic Myanmar" about
an ancient city; at 1559 covered by strong CRI sign on.

Was this just an anomaly or a permanent schedule change? Need to check
again next week.

5985, Myanmar Radio, 1242-1250, Dec 13, Wednesday. Another English

in her flat.

TIBET. 4905 // 6200, Xizang PBS via Lhasa, 1600, Dec 15. The 滴oly
Tibet・program in English; "China Tibet Broadcasting"; news of Tibetan

Tibet" scheduled 1600-1700.

Re: Monitoring Indonesia Ron Howard - Dec 17, 2017 15:28 UTC No.2857
INDONESIA. Atsunori Ishida's website (http://rri.jpn.org/) has
today (Dec 17) posted the following:

"This site will not be updated after December 31, 2017."

So he will no longer be doing his daily monitoring and posting
his results there. Would seem logical that his decision to do so
is due to the current lack of stations to report on.

At his site, note "Previous Results" that he started back in March
2010, a time that had a good number of stations to keep track of,
very much unlike the present situation today.

Certainly I will miss the excellent info that he has provided over the
years. A job very well done!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1025, Dec 17. Tuned
in to hear "The Twelve Days of Christmas"; 1036-1113, with Sunday

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1238, Dec 17. Usual Sunday "Country
Roads" C&W music show with DJ in English; songs "Jolene" (Dolly
Parton), "Elusive Butterfly" (Bob Lind), Xmas song "I'll Be Home for
Christmas," etc.; DJ with modulation at a very low level, whereas the
music level was good; 1315 into Hindi.

It will be recalled that the northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya (means
"The Abode of Clouds") has a population of about 75% Christians, while
the capital city of Shillong (known as the "Scotland of the East"), has
close to 50% of the population being Christian. So Christmas is widely
celebrated. Today 1342-1358 with non-stop Xmas songs; "Winter
Wonderland," "Joy to the World," "The First Noel," "Jingle Bells," etc.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1114-1202*, Dec 19.
Better than the usual reception; various music; Pacific Islands songs,
The Rolling Stones "Brown Sugar," Xmas songs - "Deck the Hall,"
"We Wish You a Merry Christmas," "O Little Town Of Bethlehem,"
etc.; 1201 usual bird call and into the NBC news in English; suddenly
cut off. Unable to hear any RRI QRM.

INDIA. 5050, AIR Aizawl [non-log], checking here on Dec 18, after
Beibu Bay Radio signed off (1602*), to see if I could hear any carrier
at all from AIR, but the frequency was completely clear of any station;
AIR has been off the air here for a long time now.

Still off frequency 7555.62v, AIR via Delhi-Kingsway, 1211, Dec 19.
Daily I find them on a slightly different frequency; decent level carrier,

about today being International Migrants Day; mostly fair.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC (presumed), 1205 and random

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1225-1243, Dec 21. Mostly
pop songs, except for news 1231-1236, which had several sound
bites; very close to being readable.

5055, Radio 4KZ, 1433-1505, Dec 21. Much better reception than
yesterday; same format as yesterday; 1500 news (mentioned
"bomb threat"?); getting closer to being semi-readable, but still with
some SSB chatter in Spanish which blocks 4KZ reception. My best
reception here seems to start about 45 minutes before my local
sunrise and slowly improves a little.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1120-1202, Dec 21. DJ in
Pidgin playing pop Pacific Islands music and Xmas song - "Joy to the
World"; 1157, as usually happens at this time, a full ID and frequencies
given; audio ended 1202.

Anomaly today. Normally the transmitter would have gone off at 1202,
but today their carrier continued on past 1335. First time I have noted
this happening. Maybe they will be doing some holiday extended
broadcasts? (see Solomon Islands).

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1206*, Dec 21. Cut off
just after the NBC news in English; poor.

SIKKIM. new 4836.0, AIR Gangtok, ex: 4835.0, at 1329 & 1510, Dec 21.
Only hearing a carrier, but nothing on their former ex 4835.0, so presume
it was them.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, probably Wantok FM relay, during this
extended broadcast on Dec 21, at 1208+; pop hit songs and Xmas song
"The First Noel"; didn't stay on too long, as gone by a check at 1220.
Would like to think that maybe they will do more and longer extended
holiday broadcasting? We will see! Also note Bougainville.

Merry Little Christmas," followed by SA of song and phone number
"if you like to join the conversation." My audio http://goo.gl/kQutXV .
Finally able to pull in some audio good enough to record, even though
it's poor quality!

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. Last Friday, noted the absence
of the usual NKH production of "Friends Around the World" at 1540.
Instead Myanmar carried their "Friday evening music program."

Dec 22 (Friday), checked again at 1540 and again found "Friday evening
music program." So after many years of running the NHK program, they
have decided to drop it from their schedule at this time?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1201*, Dec 22. Cut off
before they made it into the NBC news.

BTW - Dec 22, had no signal from NBC Bougainville (3325) from 1135+.

SIKKIM. 4835.0, AIR Gangtok. Dec 22, back on frequency again, after their
one day anomaly yesterday.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC. Dec 29, with greatly extended
broadcast; 1427-1545+; non-stop pop songs (Rolling Stones with
"Honky Tonk Woman," etc.); only heard a few announcers very briefly;
didn't sound like a Wantok FM relay, as there were no frequent SAs,
so strongly suspect this was SIBC extended programming; weak.

Headed for broadcasting 24 hours today?

- - - - - - - Ron posted to DXLD yg:

** BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1057-1200*, June 24.
In Pidgin; segments of pop Pacific Islands music and talking; 1146
montage of pop songs along with "NBC Bougainville" [SA]ID; mentioned
"Saturday night" and just gave 95.5 FM frequency; 1155 another
montage of pop songs and another "NBC Bougainville" [SA]ID, but this
time with "3325 kilohertz, 90 meter band, shortwave one"; cut off at
1200*; poor.

BTW - After 1200, no trace of Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, which conforms
to Atsunori Ishida's website (http://rri.jpn.org/); so RRI last heard on
3325 was on June 16. Now am only hearing Indonesia via SW from
RRI Ternate (open carrier) and VOI (poor). A sad state of affairs! (Ron
Howard, oceanside at Pacific Grove, CA, Et E1, antenna: 100' long
wire, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 5037-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station), 1214 &
1240, June 24. Numbers in Chinese; poor. Thanks to info at Hiroyuki
Komatsubara's website, "Now On The Radio" (http://radio.chobi.net/DX/)
(Ron Howard, oceanside at Pacific Grove, CA, Et E1, antenna: 100' long
wire, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. On June 24:

Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1011 and subsequent checking till 1055:

5995, 6250, 6350, and 9100 were all in //.

VOH on 4885 clearly had different programming from the other
frequencies; was not a matter of being somewhat out of syn, but
had completely different programs; at 1055 confirmed 4885 was
still VOH, with a series of the usual "V O H" [SA]IDs. This conforms
to excellent info at Hiroyuki Komatsubara's website, "Now On The
Radio" (http://radio.chobi.net/DX/).

Voice of Freedom, now back on former 5920 (ex 5940), with strong
N. Korean jamming; 1005 and subsequent checking through 1252.
This also conforms to info at Hiroyuki Komatsubara's website,
which I find to be an excellent source for up-to-date info about
Asian SW activity (Ron Howard, oceanside at Pacific Grove, CA,
Et E1, antenna: 100' long wire, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1201-1206*, June 24
(Saturday). As it's the weekend, no news at ToH; pop songs; suddenly
off the air; poor.

3365, NBC Milne Bay, on June 24, at 1207 & 1217, was only hearing a
decent level open carrier with no audio; unusual for them to keep the
transmitter on after they end their audio (Ron Howard, oceanside at
Pacific Grove, CA, Et E1, antenna: 100' long wire, dxldyg via DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Wantok FM relay via SIBC, 1227, June 24.
Extended broadcast, as Glenn also noted today; pop songs (Whitney
Houston - "I Will Always Love You," etc.); still on at 1242, but gone by
1255. My local sunrise was at 1250 UT (Ron Howard, oceanside at

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - HS, 1235-1243,
June 26. The Monday only SAARC (The South Asian Association
for Regional Cooperation) news bulletin in English, starting with
鄭ssalamu alaikum. This is Bangladesh Betar・ clearly in English,
but not very readable due to usual CODAR and CNR1 QRM.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1203*, on June 26.
June 27, no trace off them; certainly off the air today. Palangkaraya
continues to be silent here, so June 27 a totally clear frequency.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. On June 26 (Monday), tuned
in at 1220 to heard an English language lesson, as well as in Burmese;
ended at 1229; some of the English heard - "Can you show me how
the machine works?", "No, no. Not like that", "Put money in, then dial
the number", "Could you please slow down?", "How do you play that?",
"How to slow down?", "How do you use the phone?", "Easy to drive",
"Where are you going to park it?", "Press the accelerator gently", "We
are going to hit that car", etc.; unable to ID brief program name, but
almost positive was not a Radio Australia production (in the past, RA
produced the English segments for Mon. & Wed.) Suspect this show
will be rebroadcast again on Wednesday?

VANUATU. 7259.96, R. Vanuatu, June 26. Poor with QRN (static);
0554-0608 interview in vernacular (no break at ToH); Pacific Islands
songs; 0629-0637 segment with intro and exit of drums; clear SA/ID
for "Radio Vanuatu."

BTW - As a point of interest, it should be noted that the President of
Vanuatu suddenly died on June 17. The electoral college will select
a new president on July 3, so assume there will be many segments on
SW about this activity.

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio, on June 26, with sports coverage;
preempted regular programs; tuned in at 0347; probably the COSAFA
Castle Cup game between Tanzania & Malawi, held in RSA. No drums
as usual at 0359, but at 0401 time pips and sounded like the start of a
second audio feed with the news, mixing with the sports coverage audio.
Poor reception, so hard to be positive as to just what was happening. ZBC
was silent on June 25.

Thanks to Chris Kadlec, an expert on matters relating to Korea, who 
posted the following to WRTH Facebook page, in response to my
posting there today. Helpful info!

"Ron, I basically posted this same news yesterday on this same page,
[I missed seeing his posting - Ron] minus the translations which I am
too busy to bother with honestly, though I have the full recording of
the 60-minute broadcast that is being looped as of a few days ago
(thanks for the more detailed post!).

4885 has gone rogue and is looping each hour with IDs about every
10 minutes. Just a correction on the Radio Free Korea mention:
RFK is a different station, AM 1143. However, of course, they're
basically all run by the same people at the NIS [National Intelligence
Service, the chief intelligence agency of South Korea - Ron] from the
same tower sites (which I've also posted photos of some times in the
past). This would be the equivalent of "stunting" I think. They're messing
around with their frequencies and programming and North Korea is doing
the same right now too. So who knows what they're up to with an RFK
[SA]ID in there...!!"

The ending time of the commentary varies depending upon the end of the match.

Many stations of AIR will relay these programs on MW/SW/FM by having extended

Re: Bhutan - BBS Ron Howard - Jul 01, 2017 15:30 UTC No.2385
BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, tuned in at 1330 till off just after 1400, on
July 1. Nowadays I do not often listen at this time period, so cannot
say if this was an anomaly extended broadcast or a new schedule,
but certainly was a pleasant surprise; poor reception. 1330-1354
with call-in program in vernacular; callers singing indigenous songs;
as it was via the phone, of course no accompanying music, just solo
singing; adults calling in, except for one rather young girl (please
listen to my audio) who also sang a song; 1354 end of program
and went to their unique indigenous music and singing till 1400.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (11) Ron Howard - Jul 04, 2017 04:01 UTC No.2387
BHUTAN[non-log]. 6035, BBS. Regarding my July 1 reception
till just after 1400: July 2 & 3 found no BBS, after starting to check
at 1230. So my reception would seem to have been a one day only
anomaly?

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville.

June 28, cut off at 1159*.

June 29, not broadcasting today; clearly off the air.

June 30, at 1154 pop song by Police - "Every Little Thing She
Does Is Magic"; 1200* suddenly off.

July 1, station jingle and SA/ID, then cut off at 1201*.

July 2 (Sunday), 1013-1206* mostly religious (Christian) songs in
English; DJ in Pidgin; PSAs in English regarding general election.

July 3, at 1201, SA/ID for "NBC Bougainville"; instrumental tune "My
Heart Will Go On"; PNG bird call and into the "NBC News in brief"
with sound bites; cut off at 1203*.

BTW - Through July 3, RRI Palangkaraya remains off the air on 3325.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope VOH. Regarding my recent
reporting of the "Radio Free Korea" SA/ID here: thanks to Amano-san for
explaining what I actually heard. The program's name that is looped
every hour is called "Radio Broadcasting Guide." As such it provides
a lot of info about Korean stations, with segments with many different
singing jingle IDs, as well as clips of different stations spoken SA/IDs, which
is what I heard with "Radio Free Korea." Recently at 1123 & 1223, am
hearing "V O A World News" SA/IDs in English, whereas most of the
program is in Korean. Thanks again to Amano-san for his helpful
assistance.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. Last June 26 (Monday) from 1220
to 1229, heard an English language lesson. Checked on Monday, July 3,
from 1215 to 1245, but no English heard. The 26th was an anomaly?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. Thanks to Timm Breyel (Malaysia) for posting
to WRTH Facebook page an official announcement from NBC (June 29),
titled "NBC increases coverage for the 2017 general election." NBC has
reactivated three medium wave transmitters. They are at Vanimo (Sandaun
Province), Lae (Morobe Province) and Kimbe (West New Britain Province),
all done with the help of aid from the Australian government. "He [NBC
Managing Director, Mr. Kora Nou] said people should have a clear radio
service on the 'AM' band" and also "He said NBC is continuing to examine
all its transmitters nationwide to see if it can also increase FM radio and TV
coverage elsewhere in the country."

Sad to say the announcement never once mentioned SW radio.

Re: Myanmar Radio with English lesson Ron Howard - Jul 05, 2017 14:16 UTC No.2393
On July 5 (Wednesday), at 1236, on 5985, tuned into an 
English language lesson ("Say It In English") already in
progress; continuing dialog about Tom's aunt learning to
drive and having an accident ("If only she has listened
to me . . . If only she had been more careful . . . If only
she had stopped in time," etc.); also in Burmese; closing
program SA/ID in English at 1247. My local sunrise was at
1253 UT, whereas Yangon sunset was at 1212 UT.

So clearly the "Say It In English" lesson is broadcast on
both Monday & Wednesday here, but the exact timing of
which is not known.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1122-1201*, 
July 5. Usual format of playing pop songs (Journey -
"Don't Stop Believing," etc.), but with anomaly of no DJ
today; just a minute of dead air between songs; 1200 SA/ID;
PNG bird call and start of NBC News till cut off.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, 1204-1210*, July 5. Non-stop
EZL music till suddenly cut off; BBS/Bhutan not on the air.

INDONESIA. 9525.95, VOI, on July 7, at 1033 through
subsequent checking till 1207, found only open carrier; no
modulation/audio at all.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1115, July 5.
Why do they stay on this jammed frequency, when their
ex 5940 is clear of any jamming? VOF signal often does
fairly well against the jamming, e.g. July 7, at 1120 almost
fair reception even with jamming. Ex 6135 is still jammed
with white noise.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1037, July 7.
Sounds of a large crowd; sounded like some interviews at
the event; strongly suspect this was coverage of Yakutsk's
Guinness World Records event with 16,620 people wearing
traditional Yakut clothing - http://goo.gl/xspMww .

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on July 9,
Sunday, with a second consecutive day of very decent,
above average reception.

1028-1125: Election coverage via "NBC National Radio"
audio feed, in English; many different reports giving the
vote count; "Stay with us for more election 2017 coverage,"
ad for mobile phone service, "Welcome back to election
2017 coverage"; promos and PSA about "building a great
nation" and for "NBC TV"; "NBC National Radio updates";
"NBC official broadcaster of the 2017 election."

1125-1201*: Local "NBC Bougainville" ID and into the usual
Sunday program of religious (Christian) songs mostly in
English; DJ in Pidgin; suddenly cut off.

A point of interest - PNG during this election has over 3,300
candidates running for office!

KOREA SOUTH. 4885. Echo of Hope VOH, on July 9
with anomaly of only hearing a strong open carrier the
whole time; no modulation at all; starting at tune in of
1054 through last check at 1230.

It will be recalled that 4885 has recently been running a
different program ("Radio Broadcasting Guide") than all
the other VOH frequencies (3985 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350
// 9100), which today were all on as usual with normal
audio at quick checks at 1131 & 1218.

5920, Voice of Freedom, July 9, brief check at 1135, found
them somewhat stronger than the jamming; propagation
must be currently favoring VOF, rather than N. Korea
jamming.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, noted after
Bougainville signed off on July 9; at 1205 giving vote count;
promo for NBC National Radio; pop song till suddenly cut off
at 1211*.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on July 11,
with special extended broadcast.

1028-1203: Continuing special election coverage; same
format as I reported July 9, with many different reports
giving election results; some breaks for ads, promos and
PSAs.

Extended broadcast 1203-1320+:

1203-1208: NBC News in English.

1208-1230: DJ in Pidgin, playing pop Pacific Islands songs.

1230-1245: "NBC Bougainville update," in Pidgin, with long
list of the voting results.

1245-1320+: more Pacific Islands songs.

July 10, noted 1201* cut off, so today was the first day of
their extended broadcasting.

My local sunrise was at 1257 UT. Wonderful to hear this NBC
station without any Indonesian (RRI Palangkaraya) QRM, as

day of extended broadcasting well past the normal 1200*
cut off. Today with completely different format than heard
on July 9 and 11; didn't carry the "NBC National Radio"
audio feed in English; instead had local segments of
non-stop music (John Denver - "Take Me Home, Country
Roads," etc.) and segments with the election results in
Pidgin; a number of local SA/IDs.

CHINA. 7118-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station),

thought we would see the day that this country only had
one active SW station? Yes, now RRI Ternate (3344.86)
has been silent for several days. As I have been reporting
recently, RRI Palangkaraya (3325) has been absent and
still so through July 12.

VOI heard July 12, at 1001, with news in English; QRM from

July 13, at 1117, heard NBC Bougainville reception, on 3325, with moderate QRM from RRI, which 
had been silent for a while. By 1150, mixing together at equal strength, producing a mess here.

Today NBC with DJ in Pidgin; playing pop songs; no election coverage noted and not running the
NBC National Radio audio feed; RRI signal improving the whole time. Suppose I should be glad
to hear the return of RRI, but in truth, I had very much been enjoying NBC with clear reception!

NBC at 1200 continued on with extended broadcast; no NBC news, just continuing DJ in Pidgin
and pop songs, while RRI went into the usual Jakarta news feed, which ended at 1225 with
patriotic song and then local SA/ID. Tuned out at 1235.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 0947-1041,
July 15. Local (non-NBC National Radio) segments with
the vote count in Pidgin and pop songs (Celine Dion -
"My Heart Will Go On," etc.); by 1041, had QRM from
RRI.

July 16 (Sunday), 0954-1106. Local (non-NBC National Radio)
segments with the vote count in Pidgin and religious (Christian)
songs as usual on Sunday; local SA/IDs; 1030 noted Indonesia
underneath with reciting from the Qur'an.

No extended broadcast today; instead an early sign off; gone
by 1156, leaving frequency clear for Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya,
which by 1211 was doing very well with the Jakarta news
audio feed.

CHINA. 7118-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers
station), 1112 & 1136, July 15. Numbers in Chinese; fair.
July 16, at 1150 & 1225; fair.

KOREA NORTH. 3277 (AM), V28 ("The Parrot"), 1232-
1240*, July 16. With Korean numbers; poor, but signal
improving.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, anomaly
on July 16, as not heard at usual checking of 0951, 1026
& 1042, but was on the air at tune in of 1158 till cut off at
1230*; giving vote count, saying the number and then
repeating with individual digits (e.g. 816, then 8 1 6); poor.
Madang come back on the air later, as Hiroyuki Komatsubara
today reports them on the air at 1340, so perhaps anomaly
due to some type of transmitter problem today?

3275, NBC Southern Highlands, at 0951, 1026 & 1042, on
July 16, heard a decent level open carrier here that I believe
was them; off the air by 1050; never any audio.

3365, NBC Milne Bay[non-log]. July 16, continues silent.

PERU. 4810, Radio Logos, 1113, July 16. Unusually good
signal, with religious songs. Rare for me to hear them at this
level! My audio at http://goo.gl/ZZncpr . Also heard at the
same time in Japan by DFS - http://goo.gl/K5eUqR .

TIBET. PBS Xizang. July 16, back on the air again after
being silent for several months. Heard 4920 in Tibetan,
causing severe QRM for AIR Chennai at 1209; also heard
// 6200, at the same time, which was in the clear before the
sign on of Voice of Jinling (China), which happens about
*1230, but fortunately VOJ is much stronger than Tibet,
so very light Tibet QRM after 1230.

Maybe the others are also back today? Needs confirmation!

Chinese : 4820, 5935, 6050, 7240, 7450 kHz.
Tibetan : 4905, 6025, 6110, 6130, 7255, 7385 kHz.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, July 17, with
outstanding reception; 1012-1028*; in Pidgin; "regional"
voting results for "North Bougainville," with long list of
candidates and their vote count (one received 18 votes);
"total number of allowable ballot papers," etc.; fairly
readable; suddenly off, leaving a very weak RRI
Palangkaraya in the clear, with reciting from the Qur'an.

*1034 suddenly back on with music program of pop Pacific
Islands songs; still on the air at my last check at 1220. My
readable audio at http://goo.gl/C8kj14 .

KOREA SOUTH. On July 17:

Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1138:

3985 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350, but found 9100 clearly off the air
which is rare for them to be silent; leaving frequency clear for
faint SOH (Taiwan) reception, which is normally heard far
underneath VOH.

At the same time, VOH on 4885, as usual, with program
"Radio Broadcasting Guide," in Korean and not // to the
other frequencies.

Voice of Freedom, first day back on former 6135 (ex 5920),
at 1144. Both 6135 and ex 5920 both heavily jammed, while
former ex 5940 remains a clear frequency. I again wonder
why they don't go back to clear 5940?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, July 17, with
well above the normal reception; 1043 pop Pacific Islands
song; 1047, in Pidgin with election results; still on at 1220.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands, on July 17, with another day
of just hearing an open carrier; still heard at last check of 1220.

3365, NBC Milne Bay[non-log]. July 17, continues silent.

RUSSIA. reactivated 7295, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk,
1022-1104, July 18. Phone conversation; EZL music;
1051 usual "Radio Sakha" SA/ID; recently noticed they no
longer run a series of commercial announcements after
the ID as they did in the past; best reception in LSB to
get away from moderate QRM from 7300. Several times
stronger than // 7345, which was much weaker than usual;
1100 IS (Jew's harp - khomus) and 4+1 time pips.

At *1101, CRI (7345) signed on and blocked the weak R.
Sakha reception; certainly after 1101, no question that
7295 is the best frequency for me to hear them on. I last
heard them here on Feb 26, so very nice to again hear
this former frequency active again!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, still on at
1245+, July 19. Usual local programming in Pidgin;
election results and mostly pop songs with DJ.

The significance of today's broadcast is that there was no
trace of any RRI Palangkaraya signal; no carrier at any
time. A short lived reactivation?

CHINA. 7118-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers
station), 1134, July 19, with "ham jam," which is a ham
in CW jamming the Chinese numbers station. My audio
at http://goo.gl/At9G2L . Feedback from Lou (VK5EEE)
in Australia: "A pity when hams don't do this with their
call signs to be legal. Sending a test VVV is perfectly
legal so long as ID is given at required minimum periods.
It can encourage additional 'ham jammers' to test their
equipment, but a solitary VVV without callsign is likely
to end up being solitary and ineffective. CW QRM
especially Contest QRM sends our Indonesian pirates
off the 40m band, so it can be effective!"

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, at 1205, on July 19.
Special coverage of Myanmar vs Singapore soccer match;
in vernacular; usual background sounds for such an event
(crowd cheering, loudspeaker, etc.); preempted regular
programming; at half-time break, played indigenous music
till resuming coverage again.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1210-1223*, July 22. Announcer in vernacular;
usual short break for their unique indigenous instrumental music at 1215;
suddenly off; PBS Yunnan already off. BBS is not often heard.

BOUGAINVILLE. This Sunday (July 23), listening mostly from 1042 to
1325+. All local programming in Pidgin; frequent SA/IDs for "NBC
Bougainville"; music program (some Sunday religious songs, pop Pacific
Islands music and C&W songs [Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers - "Islands
In The Stream," etc.]); no election results today, but several mentions of
"regional seats"; yet another day with an extended broadcast past their
former 1200*. For a while (1042 to about 1130) did have some RRI
Palangkaraya light QRM underneath, but NBC was much stronger and
their signal improved to almost fair at times.

My report on July 19, for 1245+, with "no trace of any RRI Palangkaraya
signal" is now explained by Atsunori Ishida, who lists RRI that day at 1500,
so a very late sign on.

NBC Madang (3260), on July 23, also running past 1325+, but very different
format than NBC Bougainville; instead with a lot of info in Pidgin about the
vote count, but not very readable, unlike Bougainville. NBC on 3275 & 3365
continue silent.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, 1203-1216+, July 20. Extended broadcast
past normal 1200*; non-stop EZL instrumental music till suddenly cut off;
BBS/Bhutan off the air during this time today.

INDONESIA. 9525.95, VOI, 1040, July 21. In English with music program;
1056 in stilted Chinese; 1213 in Japanese.

KOREA NORTH[non]. back to former 5965, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via
Yamata, ex 7215. At 1300, on July 21; in Korean with no jamming yet;
fair-good.

July 22, first day of heavy N. Korea jamming, on 5965, at 1246; before
the *1300 of Shiokaze.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. Special coverage of Myanmar vs
Brunei, in the U23 soccer games (under age 23), on July 21, at 1139 and
still going at 1255; seemed to perhaps be a TV audio feed, as less than
full spoken coverage.

July 23, with coverage of the Myanmar vs Australia U23 soccer game;
these matches being held in Yangon; heard at 1239; fair.

For those that are interested, here is video of today's highlights of
the U23 soccer match between Myanmar and Australia, that was
held in Thuwunna Stadium, Yangon:

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS (tentative), 1345-1400*, July 25. Noted definite
open carrier, but unable to pull in any audio. Cut off time
matches my positive BBS reception here on July 1, so believe it
was again them with an extended broadcast.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville.

July 24, listening on-and-off 1058-1249+; mostly non-stop pop hit songs
("Another Day in Paradise," "True Colors," etc.); very few announcers in
Pidgin, so no election results today, but still with extended broadcast past
1200. No RRI Palangkaraya QRM noted today, due to another late sign on
per Atsunori Ishida ("-1400-1702* LA.").

July 25, at 1140, again with music program noted till tuned out at 1302.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, at 1237, on July 25. Start of the usual Tuesday
滴eart to Heart・program; DJ in English playing EZL hit love songs ("Can't
Help Falling in Love," Celine Dion - "The Power of Love," etc.).

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1206-1224+, July 26. PBS Yunnan (China)
cut off at 1206*, leaving weak, but in the clear BBS; announcer in
vernacular with usual short breaks at 1213 and 1216 for the unique
indigenous instrumental music; 1224 into indigenous music and
singing. Found off the air at 1246 check, so did not go through to
1400 today. My local sunrise today was at 1309 UTC, while sunset
at Thimphu was 1253 UTC.

This is encouraging to find them running past PBS Yunnan going
off the air.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1058, July 26. A moment
of nostalgia here, with playing of the song "Waltzing Matilda," by a
heavily accented Australian singer. 1109 - Dire Straits with "Walk Of Life."
No extended broadcast today, but instead was off the air before 1152.
At which time I heard Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya in the clear with almost
fair reception; well above the norm for them, with time pips at 1200 and
Jakarta news audio feed at 1201.

Noted 3260 (NBC Madang - PNG), at 1254 and subsequent checking
through to 1325, with no modulation/audio at all, but decent level open
carrier.

only RRI here, whereas earlier (1030-1115) noted NBC Bougainville
with their usual Sunday religious programming, so no extended
broadcast and instead with an early sign off. From 1240 to 1301,
RRI in Bahasa Indonesia, with music program of pop songs in English
(Righteous Brothers - "Unchained Melody," Led Zeppelin - "All My
Love," etc.); many singing "Pro Satu RRI Palangkaraya" jingles;

no station there, as VOF was down on 5920, as usual), 6350. Whereas
on 5920, heard Voice of Freedom with no jamming at all today.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang 1218-1237, July 30.

open carrier still heard at 1326, but by then with no modulation/audio.

USB chatter in Spanish. My audio at http://goo.gl/19yTQf . Seems I may
have some QRM to contend with whenever 4KZ starts up. At 1234, on
Aug 2.

BHUTAN[non-logs]. 6035, BBS. On Aug 1, noted PBS Yunnan (China)
till it cut off about 1208, with non-stop easy-listening filler music.
No Bhutan heard here today, unlike yesterdays BBS 1219*.

Aug 2, with PBS Yunnan (China) going off at 1200*, after being in Chinese,
with EZL song. No BBS today after PBS went off.

So BBS is only on after 1200 erratically!

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio. It was back in Sept. 2016, that during
the 1300-1400 time period they changed from being in Chinese, over to
Vietnamese, but Aug 3, at 1340 was clearly back again in Chinese; SA in
English - "Beibu Bay Radio"; 1400 time pips; time given in Chinese and
English ("Beijing time is now 10 PM,"); "Guangxi Beibu Bay Radio" SA
in English; briefly in English with "B B R Evening News" intro; into news
in Vietnamese. Have not heard AIR Aizawl (India) here for a while now.

So is 1300-1400 now completely back to Chinese? Is the former brief
English segment still at about 1320? New schedule? Needs more
monitoring!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1119-1201*, Aug 4.
Reception above the norm, but with summertime QRN (static)
and light QRM from RRI Palangkaraya; fortunately for me, NBC
was much stronger; in English & Pidgin with many mentions of
"on the island"; 1123 Public Service Announcement in English
for benefits ("Bring your registration card and ID"); DJ in Pidgin
playing pop Pacific Islands songs; 1155 DJ with SA ("NBC
Bougainville broadcasting 95 point 5, FM band . . 3 point
3 2 5 kilohertz, 90 meter band, shortwave one"); "Friday night,
Friday number four." After 1201* cut off, RRI Palangkaraya
was in the clear with audio feed of the Jakarta news.

My audio at http://goo.gl/oowoyk .

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1300-1400, Aug 4. Yes, they
have reverted back to their pre-Sept. 2016 schedule; mostly in
Chinese, but now with no brief English segment. They continue
with the previous format of having a brief Thai language segment,
today heard 1331+, otherwise in Chinese.

6200, Voice of Jinling. This is a very cosmopolitan station! For over
a month now, just after sign on, have been hearing nice traditional
French songs (very entertaining!). Aug 4, at 1238 & 1247 with French
songs, otherwise in Chinese, with what sounded like many commercial
announcements; very light QRM from Xizang PBS (Tibet, via Lhasa),
also on frequency. My audio at http://goo.gl/9eY1GV .

KOREA SOUTH. 6135, Voice of Freedom (ex 5920). Aug 4, still
heard here with the usual white noise jamming, but today VOF with
about the best ever reception at 1021 and subsequent checking
till 1237.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang. Aug 4, running longer
than 3325; pop song (Little River Band - "Cool Changes"); on-air phone
calls in Pidgin; 1224* cut off. Since the end of the election results, note
Madang has had a good number of these call-in shows, which I assume
are callers commenting on the recent election. Not nearly as strong as
NBC Bougainville (3325).

3275, NBC Southern Highlands[non-log], on Aug 4, not heard.

3365, NBC Milne Bay[non-log], on Aug 4, continues silent.

Re: Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya Ron Howard - Aug 05, 2017 14:28 UTC No.2448
INDONESIA. 3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya, 1139, Aug 5, with 
NBC Bougainville clearly off the air at this time. Almost fair reception
at 1232, with audio feed of the Jakarta news in Bahasa Indonesia,
with item about the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations)
meeting being held today in Manila; short sound bite in English of
Philippines Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano's ASEAN
speech - "We now enjoy peace, security and stability in the region.
More importantly . . ."; ending the news at 1234, by playing the
patriotic/national song 泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・ SA "Pro Satu RRI
Palangkaraya."

It will be recalled that this Aug 17th is Independence Day in Indonesia,
so all month long RRI will be playing 泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・at the
end of their news programs.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Aug 7, tuned in at 1215,
to hear the Monday edition of the English language lesson ("Say It

dialogue between "Mr. Harris" and "Tom," who wants Tom to take the
morning 7:00 train to Manchester; "The meeting is very important.
Don't miss the train"; Tom works for a company that "makes some
of the finest clocks and watches in the world," but he is "never on
time for anything"; he missed the train and then rushes to take a
taxi to the airport to catch the 8:00 plane to Manchester; 1227 end
of "Say It In English"; fairly readable, but background noise almost
like low level white noise jamming. My local sunrise was at 1318
UTC, whereas Yangon sunset was at 1204 UTC.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1255-1325, on Aug 7.
Surprisingly strong signal, but mixing with CRI; 1300 IS (Jew's harp -
khomus) and time pips; 1300-1325 unusual format that I have never
heard before after ToH; non-stop traditional indigenous songs. My

briefly reactivated.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, on Aug 8, instead
of the normal starting and ending at the ToH for the
one hour program "Radio Broadcasting Guide," which is
repeated again every hour, today was far out of sync and
had some transmitter problems; 1303-1320*, *1322-1323*,
*1327+; at 1322 bell/gong rung slowly three times and regular
intro to the program; normally this would have been at 1303,
so today about 19 minutes out of sync; the next hour at 1420
and 1423, there was no transmitter problem, but still out of sync
by the same amount of time; good reception.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS. Aug 9, a very good day here! Heard PBS
Yunnan cut off at 1205*, leaving BBS 1205-1248*; various amounts
of adjacent QRM; 1205-1221 with the usual monologue in vernacular;
at 1214, 1216 & 1218 normal brief break for indigenous instrumental
music; 1221-1230 indigenous singing and music; 1230-1248* with two
announcers chatting in vernacular. My audio at http://goo.gl/SoeM1J .

My local sunrise today was at 1320 UT, while sunset at Thimphu, was
at 1244 UT.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, Aug 9, with normal format
of DJ in Pidgin playing pop songs till suddenly off at 1146*, at which time
had only a faint open carrier below threshold level from RRI Palangkaraya.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1306, Aug 9. Noted a surprising bad rap (or
hip hop?) song, filled with very strong language of mostly swear words.
Surely they could have picked a better song! DJ in English; 1315 promo
in Hindi for "headline"; usual local SA in English and into a discussion in
English. My audio at http://goo.gl/kiWzwK , without the rap song!

Re: Echo of Hope - VOH anomaly on 4885 kHz. Ron Howard - Aug 09, 2017 16:28 UTC No.2453
VOH on 4885 kHz. back to normal Aug 9. Programs starts and ends at top-of-the-hour.

Re: North Korea (DPRK) anomaly Ron Howard - Aug 10, 2017 21:21 UTC No.2454
KOREA SOUTH. What with all the current news stories about North
Korea (DPRK), was interesting to note that on Aug 10, there was a
major anomaly, with about one hour of no jamming at all from DPRK.
A very rare treat to hear ROK stations without the normally strong
interference from the north.

Echo of Hope - VOH:

6350, with their third program, not // to other VOH frequencies;
1219-1228 and subsequently till jamming started up between
1241-1248; heard with QRM from some type of pulsating noise
(believe not DPRK jamming).

3985 // 5995 // 6250 // 9100, heard in the clear 1211-1216 and
subsequently till jamming started up between 1241-1248. See
below for later 6250 UNID.

4885, with the regular "Radio Broadcasting Guide" program in Korean;
quick check at 1217 and subsequently till jamming started up between
1241-1248. Program being out of sync on the 8th proved to be a one
day only anomaly. Now back to program starting and ending at ToH.
This frequency is always free of jamming.

Voice of the People:

3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1230, all free from jamming till
it started up between 1241-1248, but 4450 did have strong QRM.

KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1 (6015). Free of jamming 1203-1210
and subsequently till jamming started up between 1241-1248; news
in Korean; ending each item with "K B S News" in English; some brief
sound bites in English; fair-good.

Voice of Freedom (6135). No jamming 1151-1200 and subsequently
till jamming started up between 1241-1248; fair-good.

UNID. 6250, perhaps Echo of Unification (via DPRK); at 1241; two
equally strong stations here; one clearly being VOH (// 3985, et al.).
UNID not noted earlier, so *1230 per Aoki? No DPRK jamming here
till sometime between 1241-1248.

non-stop religious singing and music; weak, but fairly clear. My

KASHMIR. 4950, AIR Radio Kashmir, Srinagar (presumed), 1341,

hear their open carrier!

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM, via RTM, from Kajang, 1404, Aug 11.
Unique singing SA in vernacular (one of my favorites!), just after the
news.

MONGOLIA. reactivated 4895, Mongolian Radio 2 (presumed),
1246, Aug 10 and again Aug 11, at 1131, through subsequent
checking till 1350; heard only an open carrier; unable to detect any
modulation/audio at my QTH.

Thanks to feedback from Dave Valko and Hiroyuki Komatsubara,
who were also hearing this, but they had faint audio that indicated
Mongolia and not India. Mongolia not on their other frequency of
4830; while 7260 is now being reported with a het from a third station,
which might also be Mongolia (plus China & Vanuatu). Needs more
monitoring! Website - http://www.mnb.mn/ .

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1211-1259, Aug 11. Special live
coverage of the Myanmar U18 vs Inter Milan U18, with friendly soccer
match held at YTC Thuwunna Stadium (Yangon); 1221 noted half time
break with filler music, till coverage started up again; seemed to perhaps
be a TV audio feed, as less than full spoken coverage; usual background
sounds of the fans. Highlights at Youtube - http://goo.gl/JDwjtn .

List of AIR // stations heard on the eve of Independence Day; Aug 14, 
from 1330+ UTC; intro in English and Hindi; National Anthem,
which is rarely heard on SW, except for these special occasions;
president of India addressed the nation; first in Hindi and then
repeated again in English, which started at 1351; longer than
usual speech; for the past five years was first given in English,
then followed again in Hindi. The last time in Hindi, then English
was in 2011. Independence Day is tomorrow, the 15th.

4760 AIR Leh - not heard.
4760 AIR Port Blair - only an open carrier; no audio.
4800 AIR Hyderabad - only CNR1 heard.
4810 AIR Bhopal - heard.
4835 AIR Gangtok - heard with definite audio.
4895 AIR Kurseong - not on the air, nor was Mongolia present.
4910 AIR Jaipur - mostly open carrier and maybe faint audio?
4920 AIR Chennai - heard, but unusually weak underneath Tibet.
4950 AIR Radio Kashmir, Srinagar - heard with definite audio.
4970 AIR Shillong - heard.
5010 AIR Thiruvananthapuram - heard, but very weak audio.
5040 AIR Jeypore - heard; note audio link below.
5050 AIR Aizawl - not heard; only Beibu Bay Radio (China) present.
9380 AIR, via Aligarh - only an open carrier. AIR?
9865 AIR, via Bangalore - well heard.

coverage of the Southeast Asian Games soccer/football match with
Myanmar vs Laos; pregame intro at 1240, with playing of the National
Anthems of both countries; 1245 start of coverage of the game (TV
audio feed); fair. Youtube - http://goo.gl/JuULYy , with intro anthems.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1335, Aug 16. Music by
a Jew's harp (khomus) and with singing. Certainly this unique musical
instrument is very popular in this region of Siberia; actually stronger
signal than the CNR1 QRM. 7295 remains silent.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1200-1201*,
Aug 20. ToH ends their regular programming; start of their EZL
filler music till suddenly off. No BBS/Bhutan today.

6155, CNR2/China Business Radio, 1212-1232, Aug 20. The often
heard, popular variety show "Haiyang Live"; mostly comedy with a
lot of canned laughter, but also pop songs; in Chinese, except for a
brief segment in English ("As many of you prepare to take the National
Higher Education Entrance Examination, I wish you success in your
endeavors . . . Whether you aim to be a doctor, teacher, scientist,
musician, engineer or writer . . . You are the next generation of
leaders for generations to come."); // 6065 // 7315.

The examination is given throughout China to high school students to
determine which university they can attend. A tremendous amount of
pressure on the students to do well, as it greatly affects their future.
Will always remember some years ago, I was in Shanghai during the
day of the exam. Needed to take a taxi someplace, which are normally
very easy to find, as there are so many of them in the city, but that day
all the taxis were occupied by students. Later found out that almost all
the taxis in the city had been reserved to take students to the exam.

7148-USB (ex: 7118-USB), VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station), on
Aug 20, heard at 1138, 1152, 1241 and 1259, with numbers in Chinese;
fair reception. Seems they now like the ham band!

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1250, Aug 20. The usual Sunday "Country
Roads" C&W music show with DJ in English; Kenny Rogers, "You
Decorated my Life," etc.

INDIA/MONGOLIA[non-log]. 4895, on Aug 20, at 1155 and subsequent

Kurseong. The reactivation of Mongolia here was indeed very brief!

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio, at 1308, on Aug 20, found a greatly
improved reception of this station, that until today had recently been QRMed
by the North Korea jamming of 5920 (against Voice of Freedom, which
sometimes used that frequency); usual QRM from CRI (Russian) on 5915.

TAIWAN. 5170-USB, Central Weather Bureau. Signal seemed stronger
than listed 250W? 1333-1340, Aug 24; assume in Cantonese, with marine
weather forecast. Website - http://www.cwb.gov.tw/eng/index.htm . Was //

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS. On Aug 22, heard PBS Yunnan (China) cut

Aug 23, at 1150, could make out two stations here; one with pop music
(BBS) and the other with announcers in Chinese (PBS Yunnan), which
cut off at 1200*, leaving BBS in the clear; in vernacular till BBS cut off
at 1207*. Disappointed they did not stay on the air longer! My local
sunrise today was at 1331 UT, while sunset at Thimphu was at 1230 UT.

Aug 24, at 1213, BBS with the normal monologue in vernacular; 1219
brief break for indigenous instrumental music; cut off at 1221*.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1314, August 21, with special live

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1124-1151*,
Aug 27. Sunday religious songs till 1130, when switched
over to pop hit songs (Linda Ronstadt - "When Will I Be
Loved," etc.); DJ in Pidgin; suddenly off at 1151*, leaving
a weak RRI in the clear.

On Aug 26, heard 1103-1203*; usual DJ in Pidgin ("Saturday
night . . last hour," etc.); playing pop Pacific Islands songs;
1154 SA with frequencies; entertaining reception, as was
stronger than normal and very light RRI QRM.

NBC Bougainville also heard Aug 25, at 1154; pop song Eric
Carmen - "Hungry Eyes"; suddenly off 1201*.

BTW - NBC Madang (3260), on Aug 26, with cut off at 1216*.

CHINA. 7148-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station),
on Aug 27; heard at 0937, 1033, 1122 & 1203, with numbers
in Chinese; fair reception. Also // 7564-LSB at 0937, 1033,
but off the air at 1122 & 1203.

7345-USB, V26, 1217, Aug 26. Numbers in Chinese; mixing
with equally strong CRI.

CHINA[and non-log]. 6065 & 6155, CNR2, Aug 27 at 1259+,
found both frequencies silent; whereas CNR2 was on the air
7265 // 7315.

FIJI[non-log]. 558, Radio Fiji One. Normally I daily hear
some type of signal from them, but Aug 27 had no trace of
any carrier here. Just very poor propagation or what?

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, on Aug 25,
26 & 27, 0941+. Continuing on this new frequency with
no hint of any North Korea jamming yet; very strong signal.

Aug 27, noted former VOF frequencies 6135 (still being
jammed), 5920 clear, 5940 clear and 6020 with Vietnam.

MONGOLIA. 4895, Mongolian Radio 2 (suspected), 1235
through subsequent checking till 1322, Aug 26. Only a definite
open carrier; never any modulation/audio; have been monitoring
here daily since their recent very brief reactivation. Also open
carrier on Aug 27; noted at 1051, 1211 & 1252; again with no
audio at all detected. Would like to think this is them, but will
take someone hearing some audio to confirm this!

On Aug 25, Hiroyuki Komatsubara reported "-0915- 4895kHz
UNID carrier, heavy QRM from 4885kHz," but when I checked
at 1130, the carrier was off. Worth keeping an eye on this
frequency.

RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 0948-1030,
Aug 27. Usual SA at 0950 and series of ads; pop music;
1000 with IS (Jew's harp - khomus) and time pips; long
segment of on-air phone calls after the news; fair reception
as CNR1 doesn't sign on till about 1101. 7295 remains
silent. Guess I enjoy this so much as it is the only Russian
station that I hear now!

Re: "Ozy Radio" testing on 5045 kHz. Ron Howard - Aug 28, 2017 16:09 UTC No.2505
AUSTRALIA. 5045, "Ozy Radio." It was back on Jul 6,
2011, that I last heard Craig Allen's low powered "Ozy
Radio" on 5050. In 2015, Craig informed me "We will
be back soon on 5045 kHz. with more power, 1kw. Ozy
Radio." Has actually happened Aug 28. Dave Kernick,
et al., have confirmed the SA today for this test transmission.
Thanks fellows!

Thanks also to an emailed alert from Bruce Churchill, drove
to the beach and at 0927 heard a very weak open carrier.
Reception of any audio not possible here till my local sunrise,
which was at 1336 UTC. My most distinctive details were at
1334 & 1419, with hearing the unmistakable "Waltzing Matilda,"
as a brief instrumental. Ozy Radio IS? Noted a number of songs,
but not strong enough to be able to SA them. 1402-1411 OM &
YL with what seemed to be the news; 1411 into EZL older hit
songs, but again too weak to SA.

Am not disappointed by this poor reception today, as BBR
(China) on 5050 is normally well heard by me, but today
was extremely poor (unusable), which is rare. Believe
propagation today was rather unique, so on a day with
normal propagation, Ozy Radio could be just fine.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (11) Ron Howard - Aug 30, 2017 22:17 UTC No.2511

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio (presumed). Aug 30 had
much better overall propagation than my 28th reception,
but with that BBR (China) on 5050 was heard with a
decent signal; some of the BBR audio spilled over to
5045, so I had to listen in LSB.

Just like Glenn Hauser, I also noted the assumed utility signal
at 1205, on 5045.8, along with 5045 open carrier, but later
utility was not heard.

At my local sunrise (1337), thought I would start to catch
some audio here, as I did on 28th, but not so; no audio
checking through 1406; just an open carrier today, even
with the better propagation. Completely different reception
than on the 28th, when I had definite audio. Seems every
day will have different reception here. Can only hope Craig
will increase the power in the future.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1134-1138*, on
Aug 30. Above average reception (almost fair); pop songs,
with DJ in Pidgin. After suddenly going off, frequency was
clear (RRI Palangkaraya was very late signing on today!).

BTW - NBC Madang (3260), on Aug 30, cut off at 1149*. So
both these NBC stations cut off earlier than normal. NBC on
3275 & 3365 still remain silent.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), Aug 30,
noted cut off at 1201*. They never give a closing SA, but
instead usually give the last SA at about 1131; still with the
nice English & Chinese SA - "S W liu(6) ling(0) san(3) wu(5).
Yunnan Radio and Television International, the Voice Shangri-
la". No BBS/Bhutan here today.

INDONESIA. Aug 30, with a rare occurrence! For a period
of time there were no Indonesian stations on SW. None at all.

3325, Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya. After NBC Bougainville cut
off at 1138*, no hint of RRI; subsequently still off the air, but
by 1232 heard them with fair reception; so came on the air
sometime between 1227-1232; at 1237 ended the Jakarta
news relay, in Bahasa Indonesia, with patriotic/national song
泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・(should be played throughout the
month of August); series of nice SAs for both "Pro Satu RRI
Palangkaraya" and the full "Pro Satu Radio Republik
Indonesia Palangkaraya"; many promos for "audio on
demand . . . audio streaming . . download," for RRI stations;
1400 several RRI Palangkaraya jingles; into their local news;
still with fair reception.

9524.95, VOI, off the air; checked 1215-1347.

KOREA SOUTH. 1566, HLAZ (Far Eastern Broadcasting
Company, FEBC), 1245, Aug 30. Best reception in USB; poor,
but clearly in Japanese (matches schedule); religious organ
music; some days only have an open carrier here.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1154, Aug 30. Start of
the usual "Evening Devotional" Christian spot in English; SA
in English, but cut off at 1159* before SA completed.

Amano-san - Thank you very much for the great Voice of Freedom info! Ron

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1153-1157*,
Aug 31. Pop song (Faith Hill - "Piece Of My Heart") till
suddenly cut off. RRI Palangkaraya off the air today,
checking 1157-1352.

BTW - NBC Madang, 3260, on Aug 31, cut off at 1204*,
while playing Elton John's song Lady Diana - Candle in the
wind (Goodbye England's rose).

INDIA. 4810 (AIR Bhopal) // 5010 (AIR Thiruvananthapuram)
// 5040 (AIR Jeypore), at 1238, on Aug 31; special live coverage
of the India vs Sri Lanka cricket match held at Colombo; many
ads; coverage in English and Hindi; at 1345 not // any more.
4920 (AIR Chennai) was never //.

INDONESIA[non-log]. Aug 31, noted Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya
(3325) and Voice of Indonesia (9524.95) both off the air from 1157
to 1352.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1159*, Aug 31. Cut off as
if on a timer, in the middle of the "Evening Devotional"; so today
off without SA or National Anthem.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (11) Ron Howard - Sep 01, 2017 19:31 UTC No.2515
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1159-1201*,
Sept 1. Montage of songs with several "NBC Bougainville"
SAs; 1200 another SA with frequencies; start of a promo in
English for "NBC Radio", but cut off before it finished. After
closing, RRI Palangkaraya in the clear with the Jakarta
news relay, so back on the air again.

CHINA. new schedule for Voice of Strait. Sept 1 heard
4900 & 4940 (different programs) at 1206, so tentatively:

6115 kHz. at 1200* (ex 1300*) switches to 4900 kHz. and
9505 kHz. at 1200* (ex 1300*) switches to 4940 kHz.

Needs to be actually observed to confirm.

6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1123-1145, Sept 1.
Pop song (Berlin - "Take My Breath Away"); 1133 with clear
"Yunnan Radio and Television International, the Voice Shangri-
la"; shortly after 1123 sounded like two stations here; other one
assumed to be BBS/Bhutan, but unable to tell when it went off
the air.

INDONESIA[and non-log]. Sept 1, with RRI Palangkaraya
(3325) back on the air after being silent for the Jakarta news at
1201 for the past two days. While Voice of Indonesia (9524.95)
continues silent at 1115+.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, Sept 1, with just a quick
check to confirm another day with sudden 1159* cut off. Is now
the consistent time for closing down.

Re: Ozy Radio Ron Howard - Sep 02, 2017 15:13 UTC No.2517
AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio, 1132-1156, Sept 2.
Best reception so far! EZL pop songs; just a little bit
too weak to be able to SA them; fortunately the most
distinctive feature of the broadcast is the old Radio
Australia's "Waltzing Matilda" and that came through
loud and clear (my audio clip - http://goo.gl/jai54P),
which was heard at 1156, as well as at 1142, then
followed by "Ozy Radio" SA and email address (only
able to make out bits & pieces of announcement). After
1156, was unable to again hear any audio (none at all).
So seemed to just be a brief spot with unusually good
propagation?

Very pleased to be able to catch so nice a reception of the
Ozy Radio IS. Certainly makes it much easier for us listeners
in North America to positively SA this low powered station.

DJ in Pidgin; mix of pop, C&W and religious (Christian)
songs; Lionel Richie - "Jesus Is Love," Dolly Parton -
"When You Think About Love," Don Williams - "Shot Full
Of Love," etc.; many local time checks ("19 past 10"),
which would set it apart from local times given by NBC
Madang (PNG) on 3260, which happens to be one hour
behind Bougainville; decent reception, as very light QRM
from RRI Palangkaraya today.

BTW - Voice of Indonesia remains silent for yet another day

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom. Sept 4, what
happened here? Seemed as if VOF had strong carrier, but no
audio at all; also here was N. Korea jamming with pulsating
noise for the very first time since VOF moved to this frequency;
same type of jamming as formerly heard on 5920 when VOF
was there.

On former VOF frequencies: 6135, still being jammed with

Vietnam, but all without VOF.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Sept 4, tuned in at

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1133, Sept 6.
Nice to hear a singing version of "Waltzing Matilda" here;
cut off at 1200*, revealing RRI Palangkaraya.

Sept 7, was a bad day here, with both NBC and RRI being
about equal strength, causing a mess; NBC cut off at 1203*,
leaving RRI in the clear. Normally NBC is considerably
stronger, making their station more listenable.

INDONESIA. 3325, RRI Palangkaraya. As August is
over, they are no longer playing the patriotic/national song
泥irgahayu Indonesiaku・to close the 1200 Jakarta news
relay.

Instead on Sept 6, at 1225, ended the news with the patriotic
song "Garuda Pancasila" (aka: "Mars Pancasila"), which was
composed by Sudharnoto, with lyrics about the loyalty of all
Indonesian people to Pancasila as the only ideology or
philosophy of the Indonesian nation.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom (ex: 6045).
After going three days without any VOF, they have
returned to this former frequency on Sept 7. Noted at
1119, plus subsequent checks. Thanks go to Hiroyuki
Komatsubara, who confirmed he was also hearing them
today at 0930.

On former VOF frequencies: 6135, still being jammed with
strong white noise; 5940 clear; 6020 with weak Vietnam and
6045 with pulsating noise jamming that has been here now
for four days (causing considerable QRM for Tibet on 6050).

MONGOLIA. 4895, Mongolian Radio 2. Has been on the
air here very erratically; back again Sept 7, with decent level
carrier, but am unable to catch any audio; 1131 and subsquent
checking. Thanks to Hiroyuki Komatsubara for reporting
"-1057- 4895kHz MONGOLIA Golden Radio, (Radio 2)."

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on Wednesday (Sept 6),
heard repeat of the Monday program of "Say It In English" that
dealt with the "train to Manchester"; started later than the
Monday show, as it ended at 1247, instead of ending at 1232.

So I can confirm the English language lessons are only on

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1159-1201, Sept 8.

Thank you for your information, Hiroyuki and Ron-san.
I also confirmed that VOF shifted from 6045 kHz to 5920 kHz.
There is no jammed on 5920 kHz from North Korea.

I confirmed the following at 5920 kHz.
-1159- Ending : "Ssaesalm-eul Chaj-eun Salamdeul" ("People who found a new life")
-1200- Opening : "i bam-eul Minji-wa hamkke" ("This night with Minji")

EMBASSY OF THE STATE OF ERITREA
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dimtsi Hafash: (Voice of the Broad Masses) is a state owned media that
broadcasts from the capital Asmara. This national radio service begun
under the liberation front in 1979. The high illiteracy rate among
Eritreans, particularly in rural areas, make this medium the most
effective to educate and inform the general public. Its correspondents
are stationed throughout the country. With a transmission power of 100
kilowatts, Dimtsi Hafash covers all Eritrea and it also available via
satellite. It broadcasts in nine Eritrean ethnic languages, (Tigrinya,
Arabic, Tigre, Kunama, Saho, Afar, Bilen, Hedareb and Nara), Amharic,
Oromo and Somali languages and covers a wide range of subjects targeted
at general and specific audiences. Children and youth, for example,
broadcast their own shows each week.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://www.eritrean-embassy.se/press-release/media/



There are three radio stations in Eritrea.

Radio Bana is an educational radio broadcast in five languages.

CHINA. 4990, PBS Hunan, back on the air again on May 2, after 
being silent for a while; noted at 1101.

INDIA. 4970, AIR Shillong, 1315-1335, May 2. Much stronger
modulation than normal; almost fair; financial ad; 1318-1335 non-
stop chanting (no music); usual SA/ID in English; 典his is the North
Eastern Service of All India Radio broadcasting from Shillong on
shortwave 60.26 meters, corresponding to 4,970 kilohertz and an
additional FM 100.1 megahertz." My local sunrise at 1312 UT.

May 3, heard with amazingly good audio level; 1230 EZL jazz filler
music till start of the news from Delhi in English at 1232, already in
progress, with item about the supreme court ruling today; stock
market info and sports news. Great to have them with such good
modulation again!

INDONESIA. 4869.9, Pro 1 RRI Wamena [non-log], as of May 2,
continues silent.

9524.95, VOI, 1310, April 28. In English with promo for this years
quiz; "commentary"; "Today in History" (this date in 1949 Chairil
Anwar, Indonesian poet, died; this date 2001, Dennis Tito became
first paying [$20M] passenger to go into outer space); fairly readable.

April 30, VOI with usual language assignments, but out of syn with
normal timing; English already started by 1248, instead of 1300. Next
day back to normal.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, *1120, May 2. Suddenly on;
fair; in vernacular.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1137-1203*, April 30
(Sunday). In Pidgin/Tok Pisin with religious (Christian) program of
mostly songs; 1201 switched to different audio feed (TV?), to catch
the closing announcement in English for what sounded like a religious
show ("on every Sunday"); cut off before the start of the normal Sunday
"Island Praise" program; reception well above the norm.

[non-log]. 7324.95, Wantok Radio Light, 1402, May 1. Continuing
with their long absence. Off for about a year now? A clear frequency
at this time period.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, with no extended broadcast on
April 28 & 29; off about 1202*.

April 30 (Sunday), with extended broadcast of religious (Christian) songs
in English till 1244*, assume Wantok FM relay, but no SA/IDs as such.

May 1, at 1200 ended NA; dead air (open carrier) till 1203 start of assume
Wantok FM relay, but the brief, frequent announcements between every 2-3
pop songs never mentioned Wantok; seemed to be a new format for these
brief announcements; the IDs were certainly not anything like the usual
often heard Wantok FM SA/IDs; 1332*.

May 2, another extended broadcast; after NA, at 1202, a seamless
switch over to SIBC format programming of pop songs in English
("I Only Want To Be With You," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Take My
Breath Away," "Uptown Girl," "Old Time Rock n Roll," etc.); 1202-1308,
with 20 straight non-stop songs without even one announcement or SA/ID;
mostly fair. With these extended broadcasts, is now one of my favorite
stations to listen to!

May 3, no extended broadcast.

VANUATU. 7259.96, R. Vanuatu, 0604, May 1. In vernacular; clear
SA/ID at 0617.

Re: Russia - Radio Sakha Ron Howard - May 04, 2017 14:18 UTC No.2223
RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, via Yakutsk, 1040-1101, May 4.
Chatting on the phone in assume Yakut; brief English: "We are
on the air"; 1056 SA/ID ("Radio Sakha") and ads in Russian; 1100
usual IS with Jew's harp (khomus); 3 time pips and into the
news till covered at 1101 by strong CNR1 (China) sign on.

They broadcast in Russian, Yakut and Evenki languages.
7295 remains unheard. Thanks to feedback from Hiroyuki
Komatsubara (Japan), on May 3: "7295kHz RUSSIA Radio
Sakha, still off air," with "7345kHz RUSSIA Radio Sakha,
strong signal," both at 1057.

In the past they always gave their SA/ID religiously at
xx:50, but recently noted more often than not about
xx:55-xx:57.

INDIA. 4870.25, AIR (Delhi-Kingsway), on May 8, with open
carrier at 1322; started audio at 1326 with subcontinent music/
singing (not AIR IS); weak; scheduled to be in Nepali; RRI
Wamena (Indonesia) continues their month+ long silence,
which was last heard on 4869.88.

[non-log] 4895, AIR Kurseong, noted off the air both May 7 & 8.

4970, AIR Shillong, on May 8, with another day of strong audio,
but QRM from OTH radar (4920-4975); 1239 pop music show
with DJ in English talking about the bands/singers; 1315 ended
show with usual local ID.

[non-log] 5050, AIR Aizawl, as of May 8, has not been heard for
a while now.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1207*, May 8. Suddenly
off after the news in English and promo; poor.

3275, NBC Southern Highlands (presumed), 1208 to past 1318, May 8.
Only hearing an open carrier here; has not been heard for quite a while.
Dave Valko was also tentatively hearing them today at 1315, via remote
web receiver in Collie, Australia. He did have some weak audio, with
language and format sounding right to be NBC.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log (10) Ron Howard - May 09, 2017 17:59 UTC No.2226
ANDAMAN & NICOBAR ISLANDS. 4760, AIR Port Blair (presumed).
Nicely above threshold level audio 1205, on May 9, with sub-continent
music/singing. Recently has been doing fairly well.

Wolfie's May 9 log:
"4759.999 IND AIR - probably Port Blair location, S=9+5dB signal
noted in Delhi India, at 1508, and male in Hindi at 1522 UT."

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan (Voice of Shangri-la), 1146-1201*, May 9.
A few brief announcements in Chinese; classical waltz music (Johann
Strauss II - An der sch&#246;nen blauen Donau, Op. 314 [aka: "The Blue
Danube Waltz"], etc.); much stronger signal than usual. Last year often
heard BBS (Bhutan) here till after 1200, but they have not been heard
for a while now, so assume with an earlier sign off time now?

EAST TURKISTAN[non-log]. 4850, 4980 and 5060, PBS Xinjiang,
on May 9, made their seasonal change away from these frequencies;
now these three frequencies are in the clear.

INDIA. 4895 [non-log], AIR Kurseong, off the air again May 9.

4970, AIR Shillong, on May 9, with yet another day of strong audio;
1230 news feed in English from Delhi. My five minute news audio
at http://goo.gl/JZf8WY . Fairly readable, which is a very nice change
from their past low modulation.

Wolfie's reception: "4970.017 IND AIR Shillong, S=9+20dB, female
presenter in progress at 1410 and 1425 UT on May 9."

RE: my "non-log" of AIR Aizawl: thanks to Wolfie, who provided this
info on May 9: "5050even IND AIR Aizawl, Mizoram, rather tiny signal
in Delhi remote SDR. S=7-8 at 1419 UT. "

So I am not hearing them underneath a strong Guangxi Beibu Bay
Radio (China). In the past I had no problem hearing AIR mixing with
BBR, so Aizawl must have come down significantly in power?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA[non-log]. 3260, NBC Madang and 3275,
NBC Southern Highlands both silent on May 9, at 1202; unlike
yesterdays receptions; today with unique conditions, as the lower
powered Korean station on 3220 was unusually strong today.

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (presumed), 1240, May 9, during a brief
check here, was able to hear an announcer, so just above threshold
level audio; is rare that this gets up to this level, so an outstanding day
for subcontinent reception.

Wolfie's reception: "4835even IND AIR Gangtok, Sikkim, smooth sweet
music singer, S=8-9 fair 0441 UT on May 9."

Hi, XXX. I noticed you had changed your nickname. :)
Since Yesterday, Certain Korean DXer has checked 97.0 MHz, one of the frequencies of
Echo of Unification insists North Korea has been operating that at 'independent non-government
organization' is transmitting KCBS, which is known as a national broadcast. We didn't find
out what they want by sending KCBS yet. Now, 97.0 MHz on the night time has been received for
2 hours, from 21:30 to 23:30 like the time of Echo of Unification, so we guess it may be just
transmitting test. today I also turned 89.4 and 97.8 MHz, but they were EOH.

NOTE
89.4, 97.8 MHz: Echo of Unification
97.0 MHz: KCBS (We guess it is the test signal of EOH now.)

*NOTE

-22:29-
97.0 MHz changed into Echo of Unification again while it is sending KCBS time signal.

hahaha Thanks Kowalski-san !!

Since my parents died, because I am subject to mourning (an event in Japan),
I am changing the nickname only during that period (until the end of May).

I hope you will have good things.

Re: Korea - Voice of Freedom on new 5920 kHz. Ron Howard - May 15, 2017 15:17 UTC No.2241
KOREA SOUTH. On a new frequency of 5920, Voice of Freedom
(clandestine) (presumed), ex: 6135. Thanks to the timely tip posted
to WRTH Facebook page by Mauno Ritola. May 15, seemed to sign
on about 1130(?), checked this new frequency on and off after 1107;
first noted at 1137; in Korean and playing easy listening pop songs;
an abbreviated transmission of about an hour; they went off close to
1238* and not heard after that. Ex: 6135, heard only white noise
jamming there as usual.

The format certainly seemed correct for VOF; clearly not on their
normal 6135 (under the white noise). My audio http://goo.gl/uCblFP

Seems I may have heard a test transmission of Voice of Freedom.

Per Hiroshi's web site http://hiroshi.mediacat-blog.jp/e122168.html
(in Japanese), there are a few new frequencies (5920 & 6020)
registered with the HFCC. Thanks very much to Chulsu at

Re: Voice of Freedom on new 6020 kHz. Ron Howard - May 16, 2017 15:47 UTC No.2245
KOREA SOUTH. On a new frequency of 6020, Voice of Freedom
(clandestine) (presumed). May 16, at 1013, tuned in to hear
this new frequency; clearly not Vietnam (VOV4), which is also
on this frequency; suddenly off at 1017*; VOF's usual 6135,
only had the normal white noise jamming and the other new VOF
frequency that was heard yesterday on 5920, was silent all of
today.

At 1018, found VOF had switched to 6135, underneath the normal
white noise jamming; usual format of being in Korean and playing
EZL songs; still there at last check of 1240, with 5920 silent
and a weak VOV4 on 6020.

Seems therefore that they are randomly testing their two new frequencies
(5920 & 6020), as well as using their normal 6135. Certainly no pattern
yet established as to their testing schedule

Wonderful to hear this station again, after a considerable
absence. Not many SA/IDs given, but heard several "NBC
Bougainville" SA/IDs at 1022 and sign off announcement at
1156; segments in English and Pidgin/Tok Pisin. Mostly poor,
with heavy QRN (static). Highlights:

1011-1022: Sound bites from a series of speeches.

1022-1101: Pop songs.

1101-1111: News preempted by announcer (monologue).

1111: Pop songs; John Waite - "Missing You" (I ainエt missing you

poor reception, but only one station here now.

Have to try to also remember to check on 7345 kHz., as CNR1 is
now off the air there, which should leave Thazin Radio with a much
better chance of being heard before 1200 (CRI signs on then), so
only Radio Sakha (Russia) QRM to contend with.

Re: Ramadan 2017 Ron Howard - May 26, 2017 03:00 UTC No.2298

On May 25, I was listening first to a very strong signal from Wai FM
(Malaysia), on 11665, at 1244 and heard an elegant reciting from
the Qur'an by a woman, which is extremely rare to hear on SW.
More than 99% of the time only done by men. Thought perhaps
something special was going on.

Later at 1255, tuned to Sarawak FM (Malaysia), on 9835, at 1255,
also with good reception, to hear a talk about Ramadan, which sent
me to the web to find out if we are close to the start of this yearly event.

Yes, I found that "Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, has announced
that the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan will begin on Saturday, state
media said on Thursday." So this coming weekend will in fact be the
start of Ramadan.

It is the time of year to now check SW for renewed activity from Islamic
countries; e.g. Indonesia, which in past years did reactivate dormant
stations, as well as other stations/countries running special programs.
Expect to hear a lot more reciting from the Qur'an during my morning
band scans.

BTW - In the past, the Monday & Thursday relay of Limbang FM, via Wai
FM, on 11665, during 1315-1400 UT, always had just SA/IDs for "Limbang FM,"
but this Thursday (May 25) noted their new SA/ID being used many times -
"Wai FM, Limbang." My audio at http://goo.gl/4lmnGd .

Amano - Please note 9100 kHz. reception. Thanks for your info! Ron

KOREA SOUTH. On May 26:

3985, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1144; jammed as usual with
white noise.

4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1147; QRM from strong OTH
radar (4845-4960); checked again at 1329 to find very strong VOH,
with no QRM at all. Have never heard this frequency jammed by
North Korea! [see 9100]

5920, Voice of Freedom, 1149 till past 1326; in the clear. Not on the
air here on May 25.

5995, Echo of Hope - VOH new frequency, but not used by VOH
today. For the first time jammed by N. Korea with white noise
at 1144. Very wise of New Zealand to leave here, after Glenn
alerted them to the problem!

6003, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1144; jammed as usual with white
noise.

6135, VOF down on 5920, not here, but usual white noise jamming was.

6250, Jammed as usual with white noise; unable to confirm VOH here,
at 1145; jamming too strong.

6348, Echo of Hope - VOH, heard at 1145; jammed as usual with white
noise.

6350, Echo of Hope - VOH new frequency, but not used by VOH today.
White noise jamming is also now here, at 1145.

9100, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1211, good reception (not jammed); in
Korean with the news; 1215 their singing station jingle and nice
"V O H" SA/ID (audio at http://goo.gl/fDeUXm ; very light Sound
of Hope (Taiwan) QRM far underneath, which was playing EZL music
and was // 6230 // 6730 // 7310 // 11960.

So both 4885 & 9100 where the only good frequencies today for Echo of
Hope - VOH.

Re: India Ron Howard - May 26, 2017 17:06 UTC No.2301
ANDAMAN & NICOBAR ISLANDS and INDIA.

4760, AIR Port Blair, 1227-1325, May 26. Surprisingly good reception;
fairly readable, which is very rare; preempted regular programs to
air the special activities of Prime Minister Modi, with an address to
the BJP's pan-India festival at Guwahati (Assam) and for the PM's
inauguration of India’s longest bridge, Dhola-Sadiya.

1227-1247: Pre-speech report from the festival; background sounds;
seemed to be in mostly Hindi, but some English spots; // 4920, AIR
Chennai, which now has beautiful reception due to PBS Xizang being
temporarily off the air, and also // 5010, AIR Thiruvananthapuram.

1247: Start of the PM's impassioned speech in Hindi to the crowd at the
festival; still being given when tuned out at 1325.

The speech was carried by most of the other AIR regional stations, but
clearly not by AIR Jeypore (5040). Unable to confirm // to 4835 (AIR
Gangtok) and the same for AIR Radio Kashmir, Srinagar (4950), as
both just heard with open carriers; not strong enough for audio.

AIR Kurseong (4895) and AIR Aizawl (5050) continue to be silent.

Nice catch! VOH sound jingle on 9100 kHz at 1215 UTC, Ron-san.

Your audio from 00:05 to the end, it's called SJ; "~ Radio, Huimang e meari.", and SA/ID; "Huimang e meari bangsong ip nida, V-O-H."

*"Huimang e meari" in Korean. = "Echo of Hope" in English.

May 26, at 1745 UTC:
Echo of Hope - VOH
4885 // 9100; all were not jammed.
3985 // 6003 // 6250 // 6348; all were jammd.

North Korean Super Jamming
3930 // 5995; all were not broadcasting.

Amano, listening my home at Saitama, Japan.

*I forgot to confirm VOH on 9100 kHz at 1430 UTC. I'm sorry.
