Where did the 4810kHz, which is sending test transmissions with strong signals every day, come from ??
Judging from the strength of the signal, it seems to come from the Korean peninsula...???



Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(28) - Ron Howard Sep 25 (Sun), 2022 02:08 UTC No.5101
UNID. 4810 kHz., first noted the test tone Sept 20, with random checking 0835 UT till past 1050+; 
listened for a long time, thinking the UNID might sign on, but that never happened. Heard at a good
level the whole time.

Greetings from California! Very nice on your 4835 kHz. reception. At my location, I hear the station's carrier daily, 
but only with audio before my local sunrise (about 1300-1400 UT). Yes, also noted 4810 without the test tone today.
That is very exciting news about your RRI-Nabire reception!! I have not checked for them in a long time, as I thought
they were never going to reactivate. So thank you very much for the alert!!!  

On July 16, this reply was received to my reception report (4835 kHz.) to Dave Stuart, operator of "Shortwave Australia"
< vk3ase@yahoo.com >:

"Thanks for the report. When the ABC ran the station they had 50kw and I run 200w so no wonder you find it hard to
hear. It covers the south eastern part of Australia ok. Apart from any live input  I run an identification announcement
every 10 mins [which I never was able to hear - Ron] that should override the program material, At the moment the
indents are computer generated and of female voices from the Windows 10 read aloud library, I have them reading in
various English accents to make it more interesting so if you record more than 10 mins you should get one. I was in
Hawaii in 2016 and heard the ABC on 4835 booming in and 2310 was ok as well. I have seen a trace of my signals on US
sdr's but too weak to hear. What would be the best time for you to listen, last night I went off about 1am our time
[1500 UT - Ron]. For the last hour or so was playing a dream time program with relaxing electronic music and did make
an announcement when I closed. The content of the automatic announcements at the moment is: "This is Shortwave Australia broadcasting to the inland and the islands on 4835 kilocycles day time and evening as well as  2310 kilocycles night
time" or words to that effect. Let me know of any more results."

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, cut off about 1103:25* UT, on Sept 26.

COLOMBIA. 6017.0, pirate station - Organización Radial El Prado, 0553 UT, Sept 26. LA music with time checks(?).

CUBA. Anomaly due to hurricane Ian! 5025, RHC (not Radio Rebelde), at 0603 UT, Sept 27. In English
and // 6060; with 5040 being silent. RHC on 5025 made for stronger than usual QRM for SIBC (5020).

INDONESIA. 7289.93, Pro 1 RRI Nabire (presumed). Wonderful to hear this again; last heard by me back
in early 2019; I had not checked here for a long time, as I never thought they would be reactivating; thanks
very much to the timely alert by Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), who on Sept 26 logged: "0845 - 7290 kHz,
RRI-Nabire (Pro 1), INDONESIA, // http://streema.com/radios/play/RRI_Pro1_Nabire (-0919- No signal)."

Sept 27 - Heard Pro 1 RRI Nabire on about 7289.93 kHz., from 0804 till off at 0824* UT; program of easy listening
music and songs; very few announcements; no distinctive details heard. Seems the cut off time varies a lot; the
signal was slowly improving the whole time; assume if they had stayed on till about 0900 UT, the reception might
have been fairly decent. This is certainly worth monitoring during the upcoming DX season!

KIRITIMATI. 846, Radio Kiribati (presumed), 0658 UT, Sept 27. What I would call nice indigenous singing. Believe
this would seem to be consistent for their local music? Brief audio attached.

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, Sept 26 (Monday) frequency changes noted at 1035 UT; 3985 // 4880 //
5995 // 6245 // 6350.0 // 9095.

NEW ZEALAND. 7245, RNZP, 1233-1258* UT, Sept 26. ABC Australia Wantok program in vernacular with Sam Seke
and Hilda Wayne; interesting to hear many sound bites of Manasseh Sogavare, Prime Minister of Solomon Islands,
address to the 77th Session of the General Assembly of the UN ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVy68Hnh6tc );
frequent ABC Australia SAs; languages used are Tok Pisin, Pijin and Bislama.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, on Sept 26, at 1157 UT, with prayer in English ("Our heavenly father . ."); closing SA
in English; NA; 1200, immediately into non-stop pop songs; still on the air 1315+. Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) noted
SIBC still on the air at 1448 UT, on the same day.

Sept 29 observations:

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, from tune in at 0747 to 0850 & 0901 till cut off at 0959* UT; running rather
late today; as usual mostly EZL pop songs; no news segments; occasional announcers; very pleased to hear a RRI
singing jingle, which years ago was often heard.

SOLOMON ISLAND. 5020, SIBC - Voice of the Nation, 1027-1108 UT. Somewhat less than semi-readable; 1042
to 1052, with a rebroadcast of a speech given on the 23rd ("SIBC has been the voice of our people . . . celebrate
70 years . . . I wish you all a happy celebration"); 1052-1059, preaching in English; 1101, intro calliope music,
then news in English (soundbite of Manasseh Sogavare's [Prime Minister of Solomon Islands], address to
the General Assembly of the UN); 1108, SA mid-way through the news. Cuba continues to be silent on 5025!

TAIWAN. 9410 (signal almost all in USB), Fu Hsing BS, 0854-0900* UT. Confirming that their sign off time remains
the same; in Chinese and playing music; audio continues to be distorted; assume // 9774 (only a carrier heard).
No signal on 15375, but this is often the case at this time period, as I do hear it earlier, before the band closes
down.

RTM has been missing from both 9835 and 11665 for several days (checking around 1000 to 1100 hours UTC each day).
Does anyone know why? They've recently upgraded their signal on both frequencies, and they were heard well here
for a while. It seems unlikely they would have made that investment if they had planned to go off shortwave.

> Thanks.

- - - - - - Here is the reply to my email expressing concern for 9835 (Sarawak FM) & 11665 (Wai FM) being absent:

"Thank you for contacting me regarding this issue.

For your information, currently both SW transmitters are off the air due to medium voltage (MV) maintenance
works. It was shut off from 1st October 2022 until 8th October 2022 (based on our planning).

It will be on the air on 9 October 2022 as usual.

Thanks for your concern and also thanks for choosing our channel.

BTW - As Zach has already reported today in WOR iog, I also noted RRI Nabire off the air on Oct 4, for the
second consecutive day!

Radio Vanuatu - Listening to harmonic 11835, after *0659 UT, heard several items about tomorrow (5th) being
Constitution Day in Vanuatu; fair reception.

Re: RRI Nabire & R. Vanuatu (ex: 3rd harmonic?) - Ron Howard Oct 08 (Sat), 2022 14:16 UTC No.5119

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, from tune in at 0850 till cut off in mid-song at 0907* UT, Oct 8.
Am very grateful to Tony Ashar commenting on my reported "reciting from the Qur'an (seems to be a daily
segment about 0848-0858)," as I failed to note two distinctly separate things were happening; per Tony:
"Shalawat Tarhim is a prayer reading addressed to the prophet Muhammad's followers and echoed by mosques
or prayer rooms in Indonesia just before the call to prayer."
 
Oct 8 had the following Islamic call-to-prayer times for Nabire (per - http://bit.ly/3yrvbLM ):

Fajr - dawn            04:26 (1926 UT)
Dhuhr - after midday   11:49  (0249 UT)
Asr - afternoon        14:53 (0553 UT)
Maghrib - sunset       17:54  (0854 UT)
Isha'a - nighttime     19:02  (1002 UT)

Oct 8, I tuned into the Shalawat Tarhim prayer, followed by 0854-0857 UT, with the Maghrib (sunset)
call-to-prayer.

BTW - Today is a holiday in Indonesia, celebrating Maulid Nabi Muhammad, the anniversary of the birthday
of Prophet Muhammad.

VANUATU. New happenings for Radio Vanuatu? Oct 8, Marshall Reel, at 0747 UT, was having decent reception
on RV's 3rd harmonic of 11835 ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TATj_Y_zf6s ). But when I randomly listened
to RV from 0910 till off after the National Anthem at 1106* UT, I had no trace at all of RV on 11835 (nothing
there the whole time!). Fundamental frequency of 3945 was unusable (only a carrier) and nothing on 4th harmonic
of 15780. So only the 2nd harmonic on 7890 was heard with poor to fair reception. I find it hard to believe I
was unable to get any 11835 signal, as normally that is fairly good. Needs more monitoring!

Observations for Oct 15:

AUSTRALIA. 4835, "Shortwave Australia," a quick check at 1115 & 1214 UT; very weak signal with EZL music.

5055, Radio 4KZ, 1159 UT; still on the air well past their recently observed cut off time of a few minutes past 1100.
Is this the seasonal schedule change? Believe it went off the air just after 1200? Needs more monitoring.

CHINA. 4900 // 4940, Voice of Strait, at 0959 UT; both with EZL music; 1000, not // and 4940 with the usual ID in
English ("This is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio"), then into Chinese programming.

// to the long standing 6165 CNR6 frequency. Probably missed the sign on at around 1200, as it was not on the air

being held at the Great Hall of the People (YouTube full 2 hr. coverage - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XJlaGJ4ejY );
in Chinese, with translation into English.

7210, PBS Yunnan, 1047 UT; played their IS of Chinese songs; mixing with VCO1 (a numbers station run by the Chinese Air
Defense) that was in LSB; also present seemed to be SOH (Taiwan) on a slightly lower off-frequency. A royal mess here!
It is not uncommon for CNR1 to also be here to jam SOH, but not today.

MEXICO. 1700 AM, Heraldo Radio, 1101 UT; choral National Anthem; 1103, full SA in Spanish; then into pop songs (their
usual format). Interesting to note that on SW, the Mexican station on 6185, when closing down for the day, also plays the
choral NA at the same time.

VANUATU. 7890 (2nd harmonic), 1051 UT; religious songs till SA & usual list of frequencies in Bislama; followed by National
Anthem; audio ending at 1101. Normally I do not re-check after audio ends, but today at 1106, I found RV again with audio
(pop songs) till 1109* xmtr cut off. Wonder if this happens every day? 7890 was noted // 3945.

Thanks very much, Amano, for the excellent Wai FM audio. Very enjoyable!

Nov 16 - A different situation today at 1330 UT, with an open carrier on 9835 kHz., which I assume was Sarawak FM
testing their transmitter, while today found Wai FM (11665) to be off the air (normally sign off time for both
stations is 1400* UT, or a few minutes past.

Also heard Sound of Hope (Taiwan) with one of their better days, on 6214.90 // 6229.95, with 6280 absent today. On
my attached audio, as usual no time pips at ToH, but the normal ID ("Xiwang zhi sheng guoji guangbo diantai" -
translation: Sound of Hope international broadcast station) is at 01:03, given twice (once by a man and again by a

Hi Ron-san and Komatsubara
Thank you always for DXing information.

UNID Korean station on 9430 kHz sounds like "RBS 북한부흥통일방송 (北韓復興統一放送)" to me.
In Korean reading, “RBS Bughan buheung tong-il bangsong“.
In English, “RBS North Korean Revival Unification Broadcasting“.



Re: Korea - Ron Howard Nov 18 (Fri), 2022 14:26 UTC No.5180
Greetings, Amano, from California! Appreciate your excellent feedback regarding the UNID station. 
This is most helpful.

Online I noted the following interesting VOA article (Nov 17) - https://bit.ly/3GrKN6E .

"Experts: Information Campaign Key to Pressuring North Korea"

" . . . Sending North Korea "massive quantities of information from entertainment to news" could open people's
understanding about the outside world and their "inalienable and universal rights" as well as the "truth about
the Kim regime," Maxwell said. The outside information could even cover such educational topics as improving
crop yields, he added.

Getting information to North Koreans would include increasing the number of hours that defector groups broadcast
into North Korea, influencing North Korean elites overseas to bring information into the country, and to restart
loudspeaker broadcasts at the interKorean border, said Bruce Bennett, a senior defense analyst at the Rand Corp. . ."

Ron-san, ARIGATOUGOZAIMASU !

I'm rarely awake at this time of day, so it's refreshing.
When I start going to the hospital, I won't be able to listen to the radio again,
so I'll listen to it a lot now. :D:D

Re: Voice of Freedom - new pulsating tone QRN - Ron Howard Nov 30 (Wed), 2022 13:17 UTC No.5203
KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, on Nov 30, at 1157 UT; closing SA for the "Aneun geos-i him-ida"
(Knowledge Is Power) program; 1200, the usual single tone; then "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo bam 9 (ahob)
sileul allyeodeulibnida" (In English - Voice of Freedom has announced 9pm); nice singing station jingle -
"jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of Truth, Voice of Hope, Voice of Freedom
broadcast); then the "Bodo gwangjang" (News Plaza) segment.

For over six months this frequency had been bothered by a nuisance QRN. Was not N. Korean jamming, as
was here even when VOF was up on ex 6045 kHz. Today for the first time that former noise was absent,
instead there is now a pulsating tone QRM, which is not as bad as the former continuous noise.

Re:Voice of Freedom (6045) and R. Vanuatu (7260) - Ron Howard Dec 07 (Wed), 2022 12:13 UTC No.5211
Very pleased to find that we were listening to the same stations today!!

Voice of Freedom - Dec 7, back on the alternate frequency of 6045 kHz. (ex: 5920); for the first time ever, heard
with good reception due to the long-standing super jamming from N. Korea being recently off the air, as it was
today; ex 5920 still jammed.

0900 UT (6:00 PM JST) - the usual single tone; then  "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo ohu 6 (yeoseos) sileul
allyeodeulibnida" (In English - Voice of Freedom has announced 6pm); nice singing station jingle -
"jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of Truth, Voice of Hope, Voice of Freedom
broadcast); then the "Bodo gwangjang" (News Plaza) segment. My five minute audio at bit.ly/3F3EgNg .

Radio Vanuatu, on new 7260 kHz. (ex: 5040), 0632+ UT (3:32+ PM JST), on Dec 7. From 0632 to 0637,
the usual segment with announcements and messages, today partially in English and ending with the
normally heard indigenous drums; 0637, usual station jingle mentioning "Kingdom of Tonga, Solomon
Islands, Voice of Papua New Guinea and Radio Vanuatu"; at 0659 they did NOT change frequencies,
but was still on 7260 when last checked at 1035; at 0755, "The Little Drummer Boy" Xmas song. Het and
QRM seemed to be from a Chinese station slightly off frequency?

December 8 observations:

CHINA. 6185, CHBC, 0950-1001 UT; the only good thing about Mexico being silent here, is that now
this station is in the clear till 1001, when Voice of Korea, in English, starts to completely block them;
heard EZL Chinese instrumental music (their IS?) till time pips and into Chinese.

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, a brief check 0745-0754 UT; playing non-stop EZL pop songs;
checked again at 0807, only to find them off the air, so a very early cut off time today!

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, quick check at 0736 UT; heard N. Korean pulsating jamming here
even before VOF starts at *0753; so it only took them a day to realize the change of frequency (ex 5920).

MALAYSIA[non-log]. 9835, Sarawak FM, a quick check at 0850 UT; found them still silent; while Wai FM
on 11665, was heard as usual.

VANUATU. 7260, Radio Vanuatu, almost non-stop listening 0710-1020 UT. A very good day here, with enjoyable
listening due to reception being well above the norm; tuned into news/sports in Bislama, with sound bite of an
Aussie talking about providing Vanuatu with air medical evacuation services; heard several of the often heard
PSAs for mental health; 0731, "Special segment" regarding the Dept. of Labor, in Bislama; 0801, program in
Bislama about "agriculture and empowering of women"; 0821, PSA in Bislama for "tropical cyclone preparedness";
0902, long segment in Bislama about a "Music festival"; was fairly readable the whole time and of course played
a lot of nice island songs; today the Chinese het/QRM was not noted.
