Re: KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1 - Ron Howard Mar 01, 2019 18:42 UTC No.3823
 
Sorry, I should have posted this earlier. Might be of interest?

KOREA SOUTH. 6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on Feb 24, at 1003.
As usual had some white noise jamming from N. Korea, but fortunately not
too strong today; was checking for the usual "KBS, Pops Freedom" show
that I have enjoyed for many years (since 2015), during the 1000-1100 time
period; during all the years was always hosted by Kwak Young Il, but today
clearly no "Pops Freedom" show from 1003+. What happened?

A check of their website shows the program has changed the broadcasting
time and per audio streaming there, no longer with Kwak Young Il, as the
announcer, but instead hosted by young woman
(http://program.kbs.co.kr/scr/radio/popsfreedom/pc/);
website shows program time of "3:00 - 4:00" (?).

I will certainly miss the program with Kwak Young Il, as he had such a
distinctive voice and had a fun time playing good pop songs in English.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on March 2, broadcasting somewhat later than normal;
1026-1045, usual segment with announcers (unreadable); 1045-1101, pop
music (John Lennon with "Imagine," etc.); 1101-1108, news in English
(unreadable); 1112-1120, back to music (Queen with "Crazy Little Thing
Called Love," etc.); 1120, a discussion of some type till hit with start up
of China (PBS Yunnan relay of FM99) at *1140, after which was not worth
listening to, as FM99 was stronger than BBS; so BBS was still on past
1140+.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1009,
March 2. NBC news in English; not // to NBC Madang (3260), which was
playing music; 1013, PSA from the Dept. of Health (mostly unreadable);
by 1143, noted NBC mixing badly with VOI here; a mess, not worth listening
to.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, on March 2 (Saturday), *0939-0955. Suddenly
on with the weekend "Focus on China" program already in progress (scheduled
for 0930-0955); started with very low modulation, then quickly up to full audio
and very readable; TV audio feed of program about Beijing's food and flower
markets regarding the Chinese New Year; presenter seemed to have an
Australian accent; SA at 0950 - "Fresh, dynamic, professional, profound,
explore Chinese culture . . . You are now listening to Focus on China"; pop
song till into Chinese at 0955, at which time became // to 4900, with the
Strait Fishery Meteorology (Channel fishery weather), till 0958 pop music;
after 1000 time pips, no longer //.

6035, FM99 relay via PBS Yunnan, *1140, March 2. Suddenly on; program
in progress; stronger than Bhutan (BBS) already here; mixing together rather
badly.

8806-USB, XSG Shanghai Coastal Radio, 0900-0908*, March 2. Fair reception
of marine info in Chinese; numerous mentions of "Shanghai"; CW QRM.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on March 3, another day of broadcasting somewhat 
later than normal; 1124-1135, very distinctive and often played here,
"Desolation Row," sung by Bob Dylan; a long song; another day with *1140
sudden start of PBS Yunnan, with FM99 relay, which was stronger than BBS.
So another day with BBS going past 1140+.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), March 3
(Sunday), 0947-1000, local Bougainville Christian sermon, in Pidgin; many
mentions of "Bougainville"; 1015, into segment with religious songs; 1030,
local time check ("half past nine"); very respectable reception and somewhat
readable; QRN (static); some CW QRM; no VOI QRM at this time. My audio
at http://bit.ly/2XwZH2B .

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, on March 3 (Sunday), identical reception as
yesterday; *0939+; repeat of the same "Focus on China" show.

INDONESIA. 3325, VOI via RRI Palangkaraya, 1047-1059, March 3. In English
till 1059, into Chinese; much stronger than NBC Bougainville, also on frequency;
later at 1307 (NBC no longer on the air), weekend segment "Highlights of the
Week," then "Today in History" (this date in 1994, crash of Turkish Airlines flight
981, etc.); a very good day for VOI.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on March 3, at 1155, another day of live coverage
(TV audio feed), in vernacular, of the women's (under 16) championship football/soccer
match between Myanmar and Philippines, held at Mandalar Thiri stadium, in Mandalay;
background sound of the fans there; preempted regular programs; cut away to a music
segment during the half-time break; 1230, back to live coverage. Unable to find YouTube
coverage today.

There is Arabic station which can hear Radio Erena for one hour from March 4. On April 5th on
11575 kHz, but on the March 6th on 15140 kHz. It seems like Tigrinya when starting, Arabic in
the second half.
The station called Radio Erena already appears at 9720 kHz, it seems to be the same station.
The morning broadcast may have been added. Although 9720 kHz is Bulgarian transmission, 15140kHz
is highly likely to be a separate site.

At 15140 kHz on 6th, carriers continue to run after the end of 0400, BBC Persian language from
04:01:35. It stopped in a minute. If this time zone becomes 15MHz, it may be transmitted from
around Tashkent.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(20), (March/01/2019 ~) : - Ron Howard Mar 07 (Thu), 2019 04:24 UTC No.3849
Some of my recent logs:

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on March 6, from 1111 to 1140. Mostly playing
pop songs; several segments with no audio (just the DJ being
inattentive to the music?); *1140, the usual sudden start up of PBS
Yunnan, with FM99 relay

BBS, on March 4, noted cut off at 1134* and at *1140, the usual sudden
start up of PBS Yunnan, with FM99 relay.

CHINA. 6035, PBS Yunnan, relay of FM99, March 5, suddenly on at *1140;
BBS (Bhutan) already off the air.

6145 // 9780, Qinghai ("Qinghai News Comprehensive Broadcasting"), on
March 6, at 1122; clearly //.

7210, PBS Yunnan, *1036, on March 4. Suddenly on with their distinctive
IS of non-stop EZL loop of instrumental music; before 1036, was hearing
SOH (Taiwan) and VOV (Vietnam). After 1036, three stations here were
just too much to listen to.

CONGO. 6115, Radio Congo, *0540, March 5. Surprisingly good reception
(probably best ever?), due to extremely unusual propagation that greatly
favored the Congo, instead of the normal domination by Japan ("RN2:),
which was today only heard far underneath; all with announcers (no music
at all, as is normal for this time period); 0550 had Japan starting to get
slightly stronger, so greater QRM. My audio at http://bit.ly/2VKsG1t .

EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, RNGE, R. Bata, March 5, at 0514, yet again
with audio nicely above threshold level; in Spanish; mostly pop African
music/singing.

INDONESIA. 7289.92, Pro 1 RRI Nabire, 0809-0838*, on March 5. Not sure,
but might have been a phone in show; just talking in Bahasa Indonesia (no
music); cut off in mid-sentence.

KOREA SOUTH. 5995, Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (VOH), March 5, at 0659.
Still checking here for any sign of Mali, but clearly VOH, along with N. Korea
jamming.

LIBERIA, 6050, ELWA Radio, Monrovia, March 5, from 0703+. pop African
music/singing; certainly seemed to be in English, with African accent, but
unreadable for me.

First time I have heard them on this frequency; thanks very much to Dave Valko,
for his alert that he was hearing them with unusually good reception on March 3 -
"English sign off announcements at 2229 UTC, then played the instrumental
Liberian national anthem, this much stronger than in the past." Have indeed
listened to his surprisingly clear audio (very nice, Dave!!). Am very pleased to
have finally heard this myself.

MALI[and non-log]. 5995, ORTM, March 5, checking 0558-0605, no signal here;
later heard Korea.

On 9635, at 0840, on March 5, possibly Mali(?); very tentative; very weak (not the
signal strength I was expecting to hear if them).

NEPAL[non-log]. 5005, Radio Nepal. As of March 5, on most days I check here with
no results from 1050+; not heard since my last reception of assume their carrier on
Feb 3.

Re: Echo of Hope - VOH with English language lesson - Ron Howard Mar 07 (Thu), 2019 12:34 UTC No.3850

March 7, again heard VOH (4885 kHz.) with English language program,
but today 0952-0957 UTC; tuned in to program already in progress
(0945-0957?). At 0957, chimes and SA for "VOH."

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on March 9, heard with modulation problems; 
1116, pop song with regular audio level; 1119, lost audio till sudden,
briefly heard announcer at 1134, but modulation quickly lost again;
the whole time decent level carrier noted; recently being heard through
strong, pulsating QRN; *1140, the usual sudden start up of PBS Yunnan,
with FM99 relay.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, on March 9, checking the
Jeonyeog Bangsong (evening program at Korean time [weekend]),
at 1000; heard the start of the "Bodo gwangjang" ("News plaza")
program (thanks very much to both Amano [Japan] and Chulus
[Korea] for their naming the various VOF programs); N. Korea
jamming as usual, but still not too bad a reception. My audio
at http://bit.ly/2XKIqDb .

UNIDENTIFIED. 5006, with an interesting development here; starting
on March 7, at 1236, noted a strong carrier; heard daily through today
(March 9); also heard by Jim Young (Calif.); became aware of this while
checking for Nepal (5005); on March 8, Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan),
was also hearing an open carrier on 5006, as well as on 8006; so he
made an observation that I had missed, mainly that 5006 // 8006, years
ago were the two frequencies broadcasting CW from Japan (low powered
JG2XA, with the HF-Doppler [HFD] Project), but that station has been
silent for a long time now. So yes, it was Hiroyuki who first noted that
8006 also had an open carrier, which I subsequently also heard.

So who is broadcasting these new, daily open carriers?

Re: NBC Bougainville - Ron Howard Mar 11 (Mon), 2019 18:53 UTC No.3864
Excellent propagation today (March 11), as there were a number 
of different stations heard with signals well above the norm,
including NBC Bougainville (3325).

Highlights of NBC reception:

0912-0920: With pop Pacific Islands music.

0933-1000: With English segment of the "National Radio" audio feed.

1000-1010: With NBC news and weather, in English.

1010-1020: "Regional News," in Pidgin.

1026: Pop song "Another Day In Paradise," but not sung be Phil Collins.

1031-1045: Two women chatting about "International Women's Day," in
Pidgin. ("Without women, there would be no human beings on the face
of this planet")

1102-1110: "Regional News," in English.

My audio at http://bit.ly/2F4h7fM

BTW - NBC Madang (3260) noted 1056-1102, with no audio, just a good
level carrier;
an unusual situation for them.

The Beatles with "Got To Get You Into My Life"; 0859, real estate commercial
announcement; "4 K Zed News . . National News"; "All operations regarding
Boeing's 7-3-7 Max planes in Australia have been suspended"; QRN (static);

"I Got You," sung by James Brown, The Four Preps with "26 Miles (Santa
Catalina)," The Jackson 5 with "ABC," Jimmy Buffett singing "Margaritaville,"
etc.; one of their better days. My audio at http://bit.ly/2XScexU .

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, March 12, at 1132, with pop songs ("Another One Bites
the Dust" sung by Queen, etc.); as usual at *1140, the sudden start of PBS
Yunnan (FM99 relay), which is as usual many times stronger than BBS. So
yet another day of BBS going past 1140+.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap - Voice
of the Sunrise), March 12, noted sudden 1200*; while NBC Madang (3260),
with sudden cut off at 1212*.

INDONESIA. 7289.92, Pro 1 RRI Nabire, on March 12, noted 0825-0840 with
unusual good signal strength, but very distorted audio; normally I would have
stayed with this till end of broadcast, but audio just too poor.

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM, on March 12. Others have recently reported hearing
this one again, but my daily monitoring has had no results until today; at 1052,
definite reception; in vernacular and playing pop songs. 9835 (Sarawak FM),
remains silent (no carrier or anything).

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, 0908-0942, on March 16. Playing all C&W
songs (Tim McGraw with "Back When," etc.); interview with C&W singer;
info about a "County Music Festival."

4KZ, on March 14, at 0921, heard Dionne Warwick with "That's What Friends
Are For"; decent reception till *0946 start of strong OTH radar (5030-5075 kHz.),
which was still on several hours later, making 4KZ reception impossible.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on March 14 & 16, heard with usual format (1108-1140);
what is different now is that there is strong jamming heard here, carrying over
from 6045, which was being used in blocking National Unity Radio; at *1140,
the usual sudden strong start up of PBS Yunnan, with FM99 relay.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap), 1012, on
March 16. Series of speeches about the importance of the October referendum
for independence (2019 the most important year since 1949 [the year the Territory
of New Guinea, including Bougainville, merged with the Australian Territory of
Papua, forming the Territory of Papua and New Guinea, a United Nations Trust
Territory under Australian administration]); pop Pacific Islands singing; clear NBC
Bougainville, Maus Blong Sankamap ID. My audio at http://bit.ly/2Oa4ySY

NBC, at 1056, on March 15. Sheryl Crow with "The First Cut Is The Deepest"; 1100,
indigenous drums intro to "Regional News" (not sure of language?); 1111, DJ playing
pop songs; some weak VOI QRM; as Steve McGreevy (via WOR iog) also noted today
at 1201*, suddenly cut off just after the start of the news in English.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, on March 16 (Saturday) & 17 (Sunday), at 0943, in English,
with the same weekend "Focus on China" program in English; about Chinese history; fairly
readable; not // VOS on 4900.

5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1000, March 16. No time pips; gave Beijing time in Chinese and
English ("6 PM"); singing station jingle; followed by SA in English ("This is Beibu Bay
Radio, the Voice of Guangxi, China"); 1002-1006, brief segment in English (unreadable).

6035, PBS Yunnan, with FM99 relay, on March 14 & 16. As usual, noted the good signal
for their sudden start *1140; mixing with BBS (Bhutan).

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, on March 17, at 1110. Clearly
in Chinese and slightly stronger than NBC Bougainville, which is normally stronger.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, March 14 & 16, at 0955. Briefly checked and
heard "Easy English" program, in English and Korean; very good reception; noted // 3985,
5995, 6250, 6350 and 9100. March 17, noted the start of "Easy English" at 0938; today with
"happy Isaac" announcer; very strong signal.

MONGOLIA. 7260, Mongolian Radio 3 (presumed), 1033-1058, on March 17. As usual during
this time period, non-stop pop western music (no announcements); no PBS Xinjiang QRM noted,
but blocked by CRI (Japanese) strong sign on at *1058.

NIGERIA. 7254.95, VON, at 0820, on March 16. Weak signal, but clearly in English.

National Radio") and one giving frequencies, during their English segment;

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, from 0912+, on March 19, with pop songs
(Bobby Goldboro with "Honey," Willie Nelson singing "On The Road Again,"
Carole King with "Sweet Seasons," etc.).

BTW - Ozy Radio (4835), as of March 22, remains unheard by me.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar (now not carrying their Home
Service as usual, but temporarily with only the External Service), at
1230, on March 22, noted in English till 1300 test tone; at 1309, test tone
off and start of assume Nepali programming; as usual, mixing with CNR1.
Thanks very much to info from Hans Johnson on Facebook WRTH. So are
all the former External Service frequencies down?

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on March 22, at 1136, with pop (western) songs; cut
off in mid-song at 1138*; then at *1140, the usual sudden start up of PBS
Yunnan, with FM99 relay, already in progress.

CHINA. 4900, Voice of Strait, on March 20, at *0953, start of their audio; program
already in progress.

4940, Voice of Strait, on March 20, at *0953, start of their IS; 0954, ID and into
classical western music.

LAOS. 6130, Lao National Radio, at 1200, checking on March 19 & 22, heard
unique gong/bell that they ring slowly 7 times (7:00 PM their local time), followed
by choral anthem. Was able to hear them faintly, but can confirm they still have
the usual format; otherwise unusable. For many people, 1200 is the best time
to confirm it is LNR.

On Facebook (UNION OF ASIAN DXERS), a comment by Victor Goonetilleke
about my LNR posting:

"yes they were off when we checked Dec Jan and heard they were repairing.
Great to have them back and for that matter any station back."

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1155+, on March 22, with live coverage (TV
audio feed), in vernacular, of the football/soccer match between Myanmar (under
23) and East Timor (aka: "Timor-Leste") U23; played at the Thuwunna Youth
Training Center Stadium (Yangon); musical interlude at half time and back to
live coverage at 1230.

6165, Thazin Radio [non-log], 1420-1440, on March 18. Supposedly in scheduled
English 1430-1500, but only China heard here; no trace of any other station. Has
anyone heard their English segment recently?

SURINAME. 4989.98, R. Apintie (presumed), 0540, on March 22. Pop songs (Irene
Cara with "Flashdance What A Feeling," etc.); above threshold level audio, but rather
weak. Thanks very much to Arthur Delibert and Dave Valko for the alert that this is
doing so well.

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC1. Thanks to the original alert from Manuel Méndez and
follow up report from Jay Novello, in WOR iog, that this is reactivated, after being silent,
I believe, all of 2019. Of course I wanted to check this out, as it is one of my favorite
stations, so tuned in expecting the previous schedule/format to still be the same. Not so!
In past years 0240-0250 was always the IS of the call of the African fish eagle, but
March 22, tuned in at 0232, to hear repetitive, non-stop pop African music already here;
0253, cut off audio and only heard a loud hum, till 0257 hum off; African singing; 0300,
here is the IS of the African fish eagle, but played not for ten minutes, but only for about
one minute; in vernacular; 0401, brief IS and music before the news; later checked at 0420,
only to find they were off the air (earlier than their former sign off time). Clearly needs more
monitoring to tell what the regular schedule/format will be. Great to have them back again!

Seeing as 5915 is reactivated, wanted to see if there was any chance that Radio Two/ZNBC2,
which has been silent for a long time now, had also come back to life; checking 6165, from
0240+, but didn't hear anything underneath Cuba.

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio. It was back on Feb 17, that I reported "tuned in at 0250, waiting
for their sign on. A long wait! Suddenly come on at *0330"; on March 22, again checking for their
starting time and yes, it was also at *0330, with program already in progress; at times almost fair
reception. Is this really the new starting time? Formerly started about 0300.

mostly poor, with 17700 being the strongest.

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC1. On March 25, tuned in at 0141, to find them already broadcasting;
announcers in vernacular and a lot of repetitive African pop singing; after 0200, best in LSB, due to
strong 5920 sign on. My local sunset was at 0222 UT. So we sill don't know their new schedule.

ZANZIBAR. 6015, ZBC Radio. On March 25, suddenly on at *0327, with program already in progress;
so there is some variation with their starting time.

Re: Myanmar Radio English language lesson on 5985 kHz. - Ron Howard Mar 27 (Wed), 2019 18:28 UTC No.3886


MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. It has been a long time now since I last
heard the English language lesson on Wednesday, so was pleased today
(March 27) to indeed catch the 10 minute program (1242-1252). Poor
propagation today, so unable to catch the name of the program, but clearly
this is no longer the "Say It In English" language series about the adventures
of "Tom" (I liked hearing what "Tom" was up to, so I will miss him!); will need
better conditions to SA which language lesson this is. Today's show was
perhaps a repeat of the scheduled Monday show, as least in past years they
were on Monday & Wednesday?

KOREA NORTH[non]. 5920 // 6070, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, *1300-1400*, April 1.
Thanks to an alert at "Now On The Radio" website, for the very first time I heard
them broadcasting on two frequencies simultaneously; 5920 is a very poor
frequency assignment for them, due to a strong Voice of Freedom already being
on frequency, along with the usual N. Korea jamming of VOF; whereas 6070 is a
very good choice, as it is a clear frequency. My 5920 audio, with one minute of
Voice of Freedom, then Shiokaze QRM (sign on), at http://bit.ly/2OD4ifD . My
6070 audio is at http://bit.ly/2FOvLZ4 .

5980 // 6090, Shiokaze, *1405-1435*, April 1. With 5980 being rather a poor
frequency choice, due to New Zealand already being on frequency, so they
mix together; whereas 6090 is a much better choice, as only light CNR2 QRM.

April 3. What happened to Shiokaze today? No // frequencies!

5920, at 1316+, was their only frequency; very strong Voice of Freedom QRM. No 6070 today.

6090, at *1405, was their only frequency; mixing with CNR2. No 5980 today, so good reception of New Zealand.

What will happen tomorrow (Thursday), when they are in English?

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar, on April 3, still carrying only the 
External Service, preempting the usual Home Service; 1227, test tone off
and start of IS; at 1230, started broadcasting in English, but with strong
CNR1 QRM.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, on April 3, at 1208. Live coverage (TV
audio feed), in vernacular, of the football/soccer match between Myanmar
and Nepal (Olympic games qualification for Asian women); 1225 music
provided for half time break, till match resumed; mostly fair.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, (Maus Blong Garamut - Voice of
Indigenous Drums), 1115-1205*, April 3. Mostly nice Pacific Islands pop songs;
DJ in Pidgin; local time checks ("10 to 10"); 1200 SA with frequency; into NBC
news in English (not very readable); cut off just after the weather forecast; one
of their better days.

[non-log] April 3, NBC Bougainville (3325) noted already off the air at 1102,
through last check at 1141; instead only heard the carrier of the Voice of
Indonesia (second day VOI with no audio!).

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC (presumed), 1244+, on April 3. Another day
of slightly above threshold level audio; pop songs (many C&W songs); another
day running past their usual 1200*.

"5020, April 3 at 1255, S6-S9 open carrier with flutter, decent signal from presumed
SIBC, maybe still on for elexion day, but hardly helpful if not modulated." So today
(April 4) I heard SIBC with the best audio level that I have heard here in over a year
of hearing extremely low modulation (mostly unusable); 1049-1200*, so no extended
broadcast today; 1059, the usual calliope music and into the SIBC News in English
(gave election result, etc.), but only bits and pieces readable; 1107, break in the news
for a clear SA; 1156, the usual evening devotional and prayer in English; SA and National
Anthem; heavy QRM (static).

news is that the recent jamming spur heard here from 6045, has ended, as National

Re: Myanmar with "Learning English with BBC, Burmese" - Ron Howard Apr 16 (Tue), 2019 18:54 UTC No.3929

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. First heard "Learning English with BBC, Burmese,"
on April 10 (Wednesday), from 1255 to 1305. Thought it might be a Wed. (and Monday?)
only program, but I was wrong.

April 16 (Tuesday), from 1440 to 1450, heard two separate 5 minute episodes of "Learning
English with BBC, Burmese," on 5985 kHz. Reception good today and very readable. I have
to wonder what days and times this is carried? Here is an audio of a typical sample program -

Re: Logs with no audio - Ron Howard Apr 16 (Tue), 2019 21:23 UTC No.3930
INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, on April 16, checking 
1330, 1404 & 1424, to only hear a decent level carrier with no audio at all; this has
been the situation here for quite a while now. With the general elections being held
tomorrow (April 17), thought perhaps the problem would have been corrected, but
not so. This year's election will be historic, in that the president, the vice president,
and the People's Consultative Assembly will all be voted for on the same day.
Looking for other RRI stations (Ternate, Merauke, etc.) had no results. Was too
late to check for RRI Nabire, which closes down much earlier. A sad state of affairs
for RRI SW.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC - the Voice of the Nation. For two days (April 4 & 5)
heard this station with decent audio, which was just after their elections, but since then
(through April 16), have only been able to hear a carrier with no audio at all, which had
been the situation here for over a year. Was very nice to catch two days of listenable
audio, but why could they not continue with it?

More than 30 years ago, we had held a pedition close to the broadcast tower.
It output is 500 KW !!, the band is full of spurious waves, and We have had to
wait until the end of the 1500 (UTC) broadcast and resume pedition.
I have nostalgic memories... :D

This transmitting station is located in the middle of the rice field,
Ogata Village, near the Sea of Japan.

Thanks to info provided by Dan Sheedy (Calif.):

"1st time for me: 6070 Shiokaze w/ usual NK pulse jammer yesterday [April 17]
@ 1303+, but a few minutes later, it was KCBS (//2850, etc.) on 6070 instead..
back to pulse jam by 1311 or so..those NK techs hitting the wrong button or what?"

On April 21, tuned in to 6070, at 1307, and heard the same as Dan did, even with
the jamming programming ending right at 1311, after which Shiokaze was free from
any jamming. Needs more monitoring! My audio at http://bit.ly/2VgfNPW .

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap - Voice of the Sunrise),
on April 27, with better than normal reception; 1008-1025 (first listening session); animated
political speech in Pidgin with some sentences in English ("Bougainville and Papua New
Guinea are members of a wider community. Members of all global society," "economy of
Bougainville," etc.); 1118-1154* (second session); discussion in English about women's
issues in Bougainville ("We need to do better," "Learn from other countries," etc.); 1130,
DJ in Pidgin with pop Pacific Islands songs; suddenly cut off.

April 28 (Sunday), at 1011, with the usual religious (Christian) programs; mostly songs in
English; re-checked at 1103, found them already off the air (so a very early cut off time
today!); 1103+, VOI carrier again heard with no audio at all.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, *0940-0955, April 27 (Saturday). Suddenly on with the
weekend only "Focus On China" show, in English; already in progress; sound tract from
documentary about Chinese history (Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of a unified China);
0951 program ID and music till into Chinese at 0955; fairly readable; this was a repeat
show that had been heard several times in the last month. Not // to VOS on 4900.

5285-USB, VC01 (Chinese Military numbers station), on April 27, at 1234. Numbers in
Chinese; fair reception; recently heard here on most days.

6125, CNR1, on April 28, at 1211. The opening ceremony of horticultural Expo 2019;
held in Beijing; theme this year is “Live Green, Live Better”; opening speech in English
by someone from the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), along
with Chinese comments/translation. My audio at http://bit.ly/2ZFTm67 .

6185, China Huayi Broadcast Co. (CHBC) (presumed), 1000, April 27. Recently heard
much stronger than in the past; time pips; in Chinese; before 1000, seemed to be sports
program. This is not often reported.

KOREA NORTH. 4628.5, V28 ("The Parrot"), on April 28, going off at 1009*, after YL
reading numbers in Korean; poor reception. Thanks very much to Hiroyuki Komatsubara,
for keeping up-to-date with all these number stations, at his "Now On The Radio DX"
website.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, (Maus Blong Garamut - Voice of Indigenous
Drums), 1156-1207*, on April 27. Pop songs (John Denver singing "Country Roads," etc.)
till suddenly cut off mid-song; as with NBC Bougainville today, well above normal reception.

April 28, noted Madang with 1204* cut off, after religious (Christian) songs in English (song
"You Raise Me Up," etc.).

7325, Wantok Radio Light (presumed), on April 28, at 0955. Heard only a carrier, far below
threshold level; this was pre-QRM from China. Must still be very low power!

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar, on April 29, still carrying only the External 
Service, preempting their Home Service. Is the HS ever coming back again, or will
the External Service be here permanently now? Are they following the example of
RRI Palangkaraya (3325), which seems to have permanently dropped their local
Pro 1 programming in favor of the Voice of Indonesia? VOI has been via
Palangkaraya since about June of last year.

At 1228, with the BB IS, mixing with stronger CNR1 also on frequency; 1230 into English
till 1300, when the BB test tone started again.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1149*, on April 30. At *1139, the usual sudden start up of PBS Yunnan,
with FM99 relay, which mostly covered up BBS, but was still able to hear BBS underneath till
BBS cut off. As Glenn Hauser has reported, National Unity Radio has again moved back to
6045 and with it heavy N. Korea jamming. 6035 has what seems to be a jamming spur from
6045, making reception of both BBS and FM99 more difficult.

BOUGAINVILLE[non-logs]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1027+, on April 29, found NBC off the air.
Later heard the VOI carrier, with yet another day of no audio.

April 30, from 0934+, again no NBC Bougainville on the air today.)

CHINA. 6185, China Huayi Broadcast Co. (CHBC) (presumed), 1053, April 29. Recently with
greatly improved reception; do not recall them ever being so strong in the past. In Chinese; pop
song till ToH, when time pips. Also well heard April 30.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, (Maus Blong Garamut - Voice of Indigenous Drums),
1143-1210*, April 29 (Monday). In Pidgin; playing pop songs; 1201, the usual PNG bird call before
the start of the news in English (unreadable); suddenly cut off, which varies on a daily basis, so not
on a timer as it was years ago. On the weekend there is no 1200 news.
