BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1127-1142*,
Jan 12. DJ in Pidgin with pop Western songs and also Pacific Islands songs; cut
off in mid-song; after cut off, only a very weak Voice of Indonesia carrier heard
(unusable signal today).

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, 1430-1455, Jan 12 (Saturday), with the weekend 25
minute "Focus on China" program in English; started and ended with pop songs;
audio feed from CCTV documentary, with native speaker of English; fairly readable,
with interesting history of the Forbidden City, located in Beijing (the heavy stones
used to build the city in 1406, were hauled from distant quarries on wooden sledges
along ice roads); IDs ("You are now listening to Focus on China, in Voice of Strait
broadcast station").

6035, FM99 (Voice of Shangri-la) relay via PBS Yunnan, 1145-1204, Jan 12. Pop
songs; FM format, in Chinese; no hint of BBS (Bhutan); late time pips; station's
singing jingle (confirmed in the past via their on-line audio streaming); too weak
to hear the usual "traveling with the sound of Shangri-la" in English following the
jingle.

6135, CRI, brief check at 1510, Jan 12. Unusual to hear anything underneath the
constant non-stop jamming here by N.Korea, but today heard English, mixing with
jamming.

RE: DXLD 18-50: CNR3 on shortwave? - Jan 12, checking 1219 & 1307+, on 7470 &
9825, heard both with CNR1 jamming of other stations; noted // to the non-jamming
CNR1 frequency of 6125. In other words, the normal CNR1 jamming situation, so
nothing new.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6085, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata (Japan), 1339-1400*,
Jan 12. In Japanese with special rebroadcast of the international symposium's Dec 15
concert, with singers from a junior high school; jammed by N. Korea, but almost fair
reception. This was also heard today by Hiroshi, in Japan.

MADAGASCAR. 5009.9, R. Madagasikara (presumed), 1526-1536, Jan 12. Via long
path; music and announcers; believe I'm safe with "presumed," based on grayline
reception, low frequency and language heard; no AIR noted. My local sunrise today
at 1519 UT and Antananarivo sunset was at 1533 UT, making for nice grayline
reception.

TAIWAN. 9410 - H3E (USB+carrier), Fu Hsing BS, brief check at 1212, Jan 12. In
Chinese; weak. Their other frequency (9774) remains silent.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 0946-1046*, Jan 13. Well above the norm; level
of reception made for entertaining listening; all in English; 0946-1020
with mostly non-stop Western pop songs (Bruno Mars with "Marry You,"
etc.); 1020-1030 interview about women's issues ("and with that I would
like to wrap up this interview. Is there anything at all you would like to
say?"), but not very readable; 1033+ back to Western pop songs in
English; cut off in mid-song; early cut off; no PBS Yunnan QRM. Sample
of my reception today - https://app.box.com/s/7mm8lzkagq7bch1eyegsptdblfpqpyhx

MALAYSIA[non-log]. 9835 (Sarawak FM) & 11665 (Wai FM), on both
Jan 12 & 13, noted clearly off the air (1300+). When did this happen?
So there are no Malaysia SW stations now?

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (tentative), 1110, Jan 13. Not completely sure
what is happening here? Heard music and announcer (too weak for any
meaningful details) till about 1119, when the modulation started to break
up and after that was only able to hear a strong hum; later at 1204 check,
again with modulation breaking up and quickly back to only the strong hum
again. This would seem to fit the Gangtok transmitter problem they have had
for a long time now, but today's signal strength was much stronger that normal
for AIR. I believe there is no chance that this is Ozy Radio with the strong hum,
as I think Craig is still off the air.

Thanks to Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), who reported Jan 12, via his "Now On
The Radio" website: "1053 - 4835kHz Fair signal, who ? , -1059- OM talk but weak
modulation and heavy QRN, Music by whistle at -1100-".

TAIWAN. 9410, Fu Hsing BS (tentative), unlike yesterdays (Jan 12) reception heard
in H3E (USB+carrier), today at 1219, had a definite signal in LSB and only slightly
weaker than the USB output; in Chinese; H3E of course is the normal format here.



Re: Mongolia - 4895 kHz. - Ron Howard Jan 14, 2019 09:42 UTC No.3664
Jan 14, from 0740 to past 0900, noted prominent carrier on 4895,
but never any audio heard.

On 7260, at 0905, sounded like two stations mixing (China & Mongolia?),
but too weak to confirm.

Re: Bhutan - Ron Howard Jan 15, 2019 12:55 UTC No.3666
BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1023-1109*, Jan 15. All in English; 1023-1040 monologue; 
1040-1044 announcers; 1044-1100 non-stop Western pop songs; 1100 till cut off
at 1109*, with the news (went off just after the news ended); not quite readable.
Seems to go off rather early these days and at various times.



Re: Mongolia - 4895 kHz. - Ron Howard Jan 15, 2019 13:05 UTC No.3667

In one sense this reactivation is good news, but this will now cause a problem

Re: AIR Gangtok (4835 kHz.) transmitter problems - Ron Howard Jan 16, 2019 13:20 UTC No.3672
Thanks very much to Avijit Mondal (India) for his helpful posting to the
Facebook page UNION OF ASIAN DXERS on Jan 16:

"AIR Gangtok is having transmitter problem again. There was loud
electrical hum on 4835 khz (Their morning transmission frequency).
Called the station engineer of AIR GANGTOK this afternoon [Jan 16]
and informed him about the problem. He assured to look into the matter
immediately."

- - - - - - Here is my recent tentative log:

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (tentative), 1110 UTC, Jan 13. Not completely
sure what is happening here? Heard music and announcer (too weak for any
meaningful details) till about 1119, when the modulation started to break up
and after that was only able to hear a strong hum; later at 1204 check, again
with modulation breaking up and quickly back to only the strong hum again.
This would seem to fit the Gangtok transmitter problem they have had for a

AIR. I believe there is no chance that this is Ozy Radio with the strong hum,
as I think Craig is still off the air.

Greetings from wet Monterey, California!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1127-1156*,
Jan 17. DJ in Pidgin with all pop Western songs (George Michael - "I'm Never
Gonna Dance Again," "True Colors" sung by Joshua David Evans & Erin Elyse
Evans [not Cyndi Lauper], Elton John with "Daniel," etc.); 1152 local time check
("8 till 11") and full "NBC Bougainville" SA with frequencies; suddenly off the air in
mid-song, after which had very weak carrier from assume Voice of Indonesia
(totally unusable today and during NBC reception, caused no QRM).

CHINA. 6035, FM99 (Voice of Shangri-la) relay via PBS Yunnan, 1200, Jan 17.
Time pips (somewhat late); Beijing time check; station's singing "Radio" jingle;
followed by - "traveling with the sound of Shangri-la" in English; so this is the
usual canned recording for ToH. Today's audio at http://bit.ly/2CvbbtK .

INDIA[non-log]. 4970, AIR Shillong, random checking Jan 12 to 17, during my
mornings (1300+), have had no trace of this station, which formerly was one of
the stronger AIR regional stations (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

MALAYSIA[non-log]. 9835 (Sarawak FM) & 11665 (Wai FM), checking randomly
from Jan 12 to 17, noted clearly off the air (1300+). Same also noted recently by
Glenn.

Rob Wagner (Australia) emailed on Jan 13 - "RTM 11665 is currently on air (@
0530UT) playing some woeful pop ballads and occasional anncts. Interestingly,
anncts don't appear to be in Malay. Perhaps Iban or Kayah? Not sure! ToH
passed with continuous music, then news at 0502 for about 10 min. Nothing
heard on 9835 but that's because there's no propagation here right now. I'll
check that channel later in the day. Cheers, Rob."

That being the case, Malaysia has therefor dropped their 1300+ SW broadcasts
and with a major change to their schedule?

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1557-1559, Jan 16 (Wednesday). The
Wednesday only edition of "VOA Special English"; normally this starts earlier
(1545+); buried under very strong CRI sign on at *1559.

U S A. 7505v, WRNO, on Jan 17, at 1215, surprised to heard English programming
and not the usual Chinese; fair.
