Re: India - AIR Aizawl reactivated on 5050 kHz. - Ron Howard Jan 03 (Fri), 2020 13:00 UTC No.4295
INDIA. 5050, AIR Aizawl, Jan 3. Exciting news for the New Year! Today had positive reception 
of this station that had been off the air for several years; yesterday had a faint hint that another
station might be here besides the usual Beibu Bay Radio, so monitored this frequency again
today; 1120-1127, prominent test tone; went off for a minute till start of the distinctive AIR IS;
1130-1135, possibly news in Hindi(?); then at 1135 could make out, "This is All India Radio with
the news read by . ."; items not very readable due to BBR QRM; 1140, "and that was the end of
the news bulletin." Wonderful to have this station active again!

Re: India - AIR Aizawl reactivated on 5050 kHz. - Ron Howard Jan 03 (Fri), 2020 17:14 UTC No.4296
Thanks very much to Jose Jacob (Hyderabad, India), for the following very helpful feedback (Jan 3):

"I have contacted AIR Aizawl just now. They are using only 2 kW now (instead of 10 kW) !!!!
Tomorrow they will increase the power some more. 7295 kHz is also on air.

Sked: 5050 0025-0400 1130-1630
7295 0700-1000"

Greatly appreciate this additional information!

Re: UNID on 6280 kHz. - Ron Howard Jan 04 (Sat), 2020 13:25 UTC No.4297

Jan 4, checking SOH, found 6215 // 6230 as usual; clear SOH SA at 1200.

Had an UNID station on 6280, clearly NOT // and no SA at 1200; seemed to
be in Chinese. Who? SOH now with other programming?

Thanks for any help with this.

Sorry, I should have said the UNID was about the same signal strength as SOH. Was clearly not CNR1 jamming. I check almost daily on 6215, 6230 and 6280 and don't often find any CNR1 jamming there, which of course is many times stronger than the SOH signals. The UNID sounded similar to SOH programming, but was certainly not //, as it normally is. Nor was it just out of sync with 6215 and 6230, but had completely different program timing. A mystery :)

INDIA. 5050, AIR Aizawl, 1135+, Jan 8. Active again after being silent yesterday; very poor reception, but able to tell there was news in English as usual 1135-1140; mostly unusable till sudden improvement 1220-1225, for segment in English; in past years this was the daily five minute segment "Now will hear comments from the press"; today was too poor to confirm what program it was, except clearly in English; 1230-1235, usual New Delhi audio feed with the news in English, which was // AIR Jeypore (5040).
  
MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio. It's Jan 8, time to check for the Wednesday edition of "Learning English with BBC, Burmese" language lesson; yes, back-to-back 5 minute shows 1242-1252; "I have changed my diet," "I stopped drinking so much coffee," "Picnics are great, but have you seen the weather forecast for tomorrow? It is going to rain all day." Better than semi-readable. Program will be repeated again on Friday.        

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1029+, Jan 7. Recently better than average reception; DJ in Pidgin playing pop songs (Bee Gees - "To Love Somebody," Dwight Yoakam - "Honky Tonk Man," etc.). BTW - NBC Bougainville (3325) remains silent thru Jan 8.

Hello! Ron-san and Komatsubara.

Nice catch! Ron-san.
http://bit.ly/37TTNgo
The five minutes program in your audio is below.
The program ID is between 00:09 - 00:12 of your audio.

Korean : “마음의 쉼표“
Korean reading : “Ma-eum-e swimpyo“
In English : “Rest of the mind“
In Japanese : “心の休止符“

I could not confirm the program ID between 05:00 - 06:00.
The program ID may have appeared after that.

Hello Amano,

Very interesting to hear your recording! So very different from my reception

with very strong N. Korea jamming still up on ex: 6045 kHz.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1254-1304, Jan 17 (Friday). "Learning English with BBC,

farmers for flooding due to soil erosion and in London, they have flood barriers); second program
about road safety (many accidents caused by speeding). My audio http://bit.ly/30xwMNK .  

TAIWAN. 6215, Sound of Hope, 1100+, Jan 18. Usual SA by OM and YL with "Xiwang zhi sheng

most of today by CNR1 (// 6125), while 6230 was clear and // 6215. My audio at http://bit.ly/2RsBFnn .

Hello! Ron-san and Komatsubara.

Ron-san
That's really interesting.
I listened to the recording of Ron-san and thought so.
How you hear depends on the location.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, Jan. 19,
1400 UTC - I can't hear anything.
I can't confirm my career.

Akita, Japan. Komatsubara.
California. Ron-san.
Can you confirm VOF on 5920kHz this time?
I cannot be confirmed in Saitama, Japan.

http://bit.ly/30w9gkq
The program name of this audio is as follows.
Program ID is between 01:00 - 01:02.

Korean : “매일 그대와 김수희입니다“
Korean reading : “Maeil geudaewa Gim Suhui ibnida“
In English : “I’m with you every day. I am Kim Soo Hee“
In Japanese : “毎日あなたと キム・スヒです“

http://bit.ly/37TTNgo
05:00 after this sound, the program name is the same.

http://bit.ly/2NDdktZ
What a beautiful picture location!
The clouds over the sun are very beautiful.
Ron-san’s audio from this location is also very clear and wonderful.
