ALGERIA/IRELAND   {see whole story on previous BC-DX TopNews #1504}
re: LW 252 kHz Algeria/Ireland.

Mr. Mc Whinney's explanatiion is correct. However EBU is not the controll-
ing "regulator" - that is the purview of the ITU {Geneve}.

But it would be simpler for the Irish facility to change frequency than
the Algerian one, since the latter is (if I remember correctly) a direc-
tional array, while the Irish one is a simple non-DA. But although there
are certainly vacant long wave frequencies the allocation plan (GE-75 and
modifications subsequently) still contains those allocations, and so
changing frequency would have to be carefully analyzed and most likely
coordinated in some way with the existing albeit unused allocation holders
given the engineering standards contained in the GE-75 Agreement.

And I may be thinking of the other Algerian LW station as it may be the
one which is a directional. But even for a non-directional, changing
frequency is not a trivial task.

in 1904, the FIFA football association formed in Paris; this date in 1991,
Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in India; this date in 1998, Suharto resign-

fixed their former long standing problem here of low to no modulation.

ing with CNR1 and before 1300 UT, was also hearing a decent signal from

MOLDOVA  {Transnistria}  On 26 April and 3 May the medium wave station
Grigoriopol-Mayak made headlines as being attacked. The first attack even
made it into the main news ("Tagesschau") in Germany because of following
threats from Russian officials.

Unfortunately, I do not speak / read Russian and cannot really check the
current situation myself lacking knowledge of which radio sites to check.
I wonder whether the frequencies 621, 999, 1413 and 1548 kHz are still on
the air. Any information from actual listening or references to news sites
will be appreciated.

Some days ago all freqs were on air. Use the Dorohoi SDR to check.

1548 and 621 kHz are not on air all the time, check mwlist.org for the
transmission times.

A shortwave curtain antenna with 3 masts was destroyed on the northwestern
soil. The rotatable SW antenna shows burns, but still stands.

There are some other static SW dipole arrays there, some of them collapsed
years ago {icing on November 2006 year} and the rest is still there and
some people showed pictures of them. Tell me if you like more information.

Grigoriopol Mayac.
I have followed them fairly regularly and I have noticed only those two
longer outages for 1413 and 999 kHz. The first time the break was in the
morning and then also 621 kHz went off. The second time it started after
1700 UT and then also 1548 kHz was off.

They can be heard with good signal here in Finland during darkness hours
and even at daytime on carrier level. If there is any specific day in the
past that interests you, I can check TOH recordings. At the moment both
999 and 1413 kHz are on the air, 999 kHz stronger.

NEW ZEALAND    New shortwave transmitter for Radio New Zealand.

RNZ welcomes Pacific infrastructure investment.
RNZ Chief Executive and Editor-in-Chief Paul Thompson has welcomed the
budget investment in RNZ Pacific shortwave transmitters. In Budget 2022
the Government announced $4.4 million dollars capital funding for a new
transmitter for RNZ Pacific.

RNZ Pacific broadcasts into the wider Pacific on shortwave 24 hours a day,
collaborating with 22 broadcasting partners across the region. Its current
primary transmitter is nearing end of life, and its other transmitter has
in effect already been retired.

"The value of the RNZ Pacific service can't be underestimated. Our voice
reaches all parts of the Pacific, at times with critical information such
as cyclone warnings. During the Tonga eruption, when the undersea cable
was cut, RNZ Pacific short wave was a lifeline source of information,"
said Thompson.

This investment secures a productive future for our unique voice.
The attraction of the shortwave service is its robustness, and the ability
to have the signal travel great distances, and achieve good audiences," he
said.

RNZ Pacific broadcasts enhance the Government's Pacific strategy as we
share our history, culture, politics and demographics. The strategy is
underpinned by the building of deeper, more mature partnerships with
Pacific Island countries, and by supporting their independence and
sustainable social and economic resilience.

Since the ABC ceased its shortwave broadcasting the only other shortwave
broadcaster in the region is Radio China. Thompson says RNZ can now start
work on its infrastructure development with a new transmitter likely to
take approximately 12 months to get in place depending subject to further
project planning.

(Alan Pennington-UK, BrDXC-UK iogroup.news May 19)

I had wondered how the impending reorganization of NZBC would affect its
shortwave output, so this is positive news !  Probably means RNZP can re-
tire the worn out 1990year Thomson transmitter currently used as a backup.

Wonder if they will keep the 2006 Thomson going and run two frequencies
simultaneously? Might mean the return of a full DRM alternative. Curious
what the power of the new unit will be.

vanced age.

"We are absolutely delighted with the surprise news of funding for a new

voice on HF amongst a myriad of China Radio transmissions!"

In response to the question - Will this mean that more than one frequency
will be on air at the same time - Adrian responded:

"It improves the analogue transmission so it can be maintained 24/7 hrs/d.
Currently when in DRM mode there is no AM service. It will be possible to
run simultaneous DRM and AM frequencies."

For the past month have often been monitoring Fu Hsing BS (Taiwan). Am now

they have an extended one hour schedule then?

15375 (good signal in USB, with extremely weak LSB) is by far the best

VATICAN STATE/MADAGASCAR   Vatican Radio special broadcast of 10 times

During the canonization Mass, Pope Francis proclaims ten new saints in
St. Peter's Square.

<https://www.vaticannews.va/en.html>

Something seemingly wrong with the Vatican Radio program feed from Rome to
Madagascar Indian Ocean, only the pause signal of Vatican Radio heard over
and over again via MDG relay site, but no special 'Canonization' program
heard on that channel in 08.00-08.30 UT slot

15575 kHz  S=9+20dB strength in Germany, French to WeAfrica at 08.01 UT,
mentioned often Republique Democratique du Congo ... relig political
Canonization item.

MDG  -  Nothing heard on 17790 kHz here in Germany / EUR at 08.04 UT.

17760 kHz  Portuguese Church chorus sung at 08.05 UT, S=9 proper backlobe
signal in Germany and northern Europe, but some switch of different TX
units and antennas occured til 08.13 UT, when signal was lower of S=7-8
strength. Partly heard also same program outlet til 08.09 UT switch OFF on
nearby 17775 kHz channel, S=7-8.

In between also seemingly two TX units send out on 17760 kHz in parallel
too, with clearly recognizable echo sound reception, delay fluttery.

17790 kHz  checked in Delhi SoAS target at 08.20 UT, noted only fair S=5
signal from MGLOB Talata Volonondry Madagascar relay, only station pause
signature signal over and over again.

Further check at 08.32 UT revealed then Tamil language female presenter of
the LIVE coverage of special 'Canonization' program from Vatican City.
S=7 fair signal at 08.39 UT in Delhi India.

Well, by 0912 UTC they had sorted it out. At least a broadcast with some
sparse commentary, sparse in comparison to the waterfall of the other

Re:  Vatican Radio special on shortwave, Sunday May 15.

At first, I thought that the commentaries in French (Puducherry) and Por-
tuguese (Goa) might also have been directed to India. But then I found out
that several more Christians were canonized.

<https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2022-05/pope-francis-at-
canonization-mass.html>

Only the name of Charles de Foucauld rang a bell.

Charles Eugene de Foucauld (Viscount of Foucauld, 15 Sept 1858 - 1 Dec
1916) was a French soldier, explorer, geographer, Catholic priest and
hermit who lived among the Tuareg in the Sahara in Algeria. He was
assassinated in 1916 and is considered by the Catholic Church to be a
martyr. His inspiration and writings led to the founding of the Little
Brothers of Jesus among other religious congregations. [...]

This might justify a special commentary in French to Africa.
