AUSTRIA   Neues vom ORF Vienna Austria, Sept 19.

<https://orf.at/#/stories/3331611/>

Der ORF startet mit einer neuen Streamingplattform namens ORF ON ins Jahr
2024. Sie soll die ORF-TVthek abloesen und liefert ein neues Design,
laengere Abrufzeiten als bisher,manche Produktionen noch vor der Ausstrah-
lung im TV und zahlreiche Archivsendungen. Dort angesiedelt ist ein neuer
24-Stunden-Kinderkanal. Im linearen Fernsehen wird es mehr Publikums-
beteiligung, neue Magazine und Shows geben.

Das Programm firmiert unter dem Motto "Programm fuer dich und mich und
alle", wie Generaldirektor Roland Weissmann heute im ORF-Zentrum auf dem
Wiener Kueniglberg sagte. Die multimedialen Angebote des ORF wollen den
Fokus darauf legen, breit gefaechert und fuer alle Menschen in Oesterreich
der Ansprechpartner zu sein.

Die Einfuehrung der Haushaltsabgabe sei "kein Ruhekissen fuer uns - ganz
im Gegenteil. Sie ist Ansporn und Verpflichtung, unseren Auftrag noch
besser in Programmangebote zu giessen, die fuer moeglichst viele Menschen
in Oesterreich Identifikation und Anknuepfung bieten", so Weissmann. Ein
geringerer ORF-Beitrag pro Kopf bei gleichzeitig mehr Programm sei kein
Marketinggag, sondern Realitaet.

Im kommenden Jahr wird der ORF neben grossen Shows und der bekannt ver-
laesslichen Infoschiene neue Dokureihen, Diskussionsformate und Magazine
zeigen. Auch Krimis "made in Austria" kommen ins Programm.

Dazu kommen multimediale Storys in ORF Topos und neue Formate fuer das
junge Publikum: Zusaetzlich zum Okidoki-Kinderprogramm kommt der neue
digitale "Kids Screen" - es soll ein digitales, werbe- und gewaltfreies
Programmumfeld fuer die Generation Alpha werden. Eingebettet in die Video-
plattform ORF ON bieten ein durchgaengiger Livestreamingkanal fuer Kinder
und das begleitende On-Demand-Portal ein flexibel nutzbares Gesamtangebot.

Neue Debattenformate.
ORF1 zeigt 2024 neue Sendungen mit Publikumsteilnahme und startet Feed-
back-Formate wie "Frag das ganze Land", fuer das die OE3-Anrufsendung
fuer den TV-Bereich adaptiert wird. Debattiert wird auch in "Fightclub"
(Arbeitstitel), in der Sendung werden zwei unterschiedliche Menschen ueber
ein Thema kontrovers diskutieren und versuchen, das Publikum von ihrer
Ansicht zu ueberzeugen.

Ein neues Unternehmerformat "You are hired ... vielleicht" (Arbeitstitel),
das Rechtsberatungsformat "Kainz und Kamp" fuer junge Menschen sowie
Mirjam Weichselbraun in der Reihe "Ist das so?" gehen neue Wege im Sinne
der Debattenkultur.

Das neue Diskussionsformat "Brennpunkt live" geht als Spin-off der Repor-
tagereihe "Brennpunkt Oesterreich" Problemen im gesellschaftlichen Zusam-
menleben auf den Grund. Das neue "ZIB-Magazin XLarge" soll jungen Menschen
helfen, das aktuelle Zeitgeschehen einzuordnen, und widmet sich fuer sie
relevanten Themen wie Arbeit und Beziehung.

Ausserdem neu: eine multimediale Young-History-Leiste sowie eine True-
Crime-Reihe. Der Donnerstagabend wird in ORF1 umgestaltet. Sind dort der-
zeit US-Fiction und Fussball zu sehen, wird ab Jahresmitte eine "Factual"-
Reihe etabliert, die sich juengerer Zeitgeschichte widmet, so Programm-
direktorin Stefanie Groiss-Horowitz.

Neue Wege bei Information und Show.
ORF2 baut die Information mit einem neuen Korrespondentenmagazin aus.
Weiters werden die Mittags-ZIBs am Wochenende verlaengert, hinzu kommt ein
neues Samstag-Vorabendmagazin der Landesstudios. Grosse Sonderbericht-
erstattungsstrecken begleiten und erklaeren das Superwahljahr 2024 mit
fuenf nationalen und internationalen Entscheidungen. Weiters wird die ZIB
auf YouTube starten.

Im Showbereich wird im Fruehjahr auf "Die grosse Chance" gesetzt, waehrend
im Herbst ein TV-Casting fuer die "Dancing Stars"-Ausgabe im Jahr 2025
stattfindet. Dabei wird auch ein Taenzer aus der Riege der Fans und ein
Profitaenzer im Rahmen von vier Sendungen gesucht. "Wir sehen, dass viele
Menschen in diesem Land tanzbegeistert sind, und wollen uns einen eigenen
Promi basteln", sagte Groiss-Horowitz.

Plattform ORF ON startet.
Der ORF wartet 2024 auch mit zahlreichen Innovationen im Digitalbereich
auf und startet mit ORF ON eine neue Streamingplattform. In ORF ON sind
Videos kuenftig zumeist ein halbes Jahr, vielfach sogar zeitlich unbe-
grenzt abrufbar.

Der ORF oeffnet hierfuer sein Film- und Fernseharchiv und stellt Hunderte
Produktionen zum Abruf bereit, insbesondere aus dem Dokubereich. Ausge-
waehlte aktuelle Sendungen werden kuenftig bis zu 24 Stunden vor der regu-
laeren Ausstrahlung im linearen Programm in ORF ON veroeffentlicht.

Streamingplattform ORF ON.
Um allen Menschen in Oesterreich bereits mit Start der allgemeinen Haus-
haltsabgabe ein neues Streamingerlebnis bieten zu koennen, wird ORF ON
Anfang des Jahres zunaechst in einer Betaversion veroeffentlicht, im Web
vorerst // zur bestehenden ORF-TVthek. Im Laufe des Jahres wird ORF ON
schrittweise um weitere Features ergaenzt: Ein besonderes Highlight wird
ORF Live, das erstmals das gesamte ORF-TV-Programm lueckenlos im Live-
stream verfuegbar machen wird.

Mehr Barrierefreiheit:
In ORF III findet bereits zu Weihnachten der Auftakt zur 40-teiligen Doku-
reihe "Oesterreich - Die ganze Geschichte" statt. Die Reihe wird mit vier
Staffeln auf vier Jahre gestreckt.

Im Bereich Barrierefreiheit kuendigt der ORF die Untertitelung von allen
"Bundesland heute"-Sendungen kurz nach Ausstrahlung in der TVthek bzw. ORF
ON an. In weiteren Schritten sollen diese auch live im Fernsehen verfueg-
bar sein. In Oesterreichischer Gebaerdensprache (OeGS) wird die "ZIB Zack
Mini" 2024 online abrufbar sein.

95 Prozent nutzen ORF-Angebote.
"Mit unseren neuen Formaten sind wir ganz nah an den Lebenswelten der
Oesterreicherinnen und Oesterreicher und nutzen dabei gezielt die Moeg-
lichkeiten der neuen Mediathek", so Groiss-Horowitz. "Mit frischen und
multimedial gedachten Produktionen, grossen Events sowie bewaehrten und
beim Publikum beliebten Formaten bieten wir im ,ORF fuer alle' ein ab-
wechslungsreiches 'Programm fuer alle'."

*Der ORF wird kuenftig durch eine Haushaltsabgabe finanziert statt durch
die GIS. Die vielfaeltigen Leistungen der Sendergruppe werden von der
grossen Mehrheit der Bevoelkerung nachhaltig angenommen. 6,4 Millionen
Menschen nutzen jeden Tag zumindest ein ORF-Angebot im Fernsehen, im
Radio, online oder auf Social Media - das sind 95 Prozent der Bevoel-
kerung, die den ORF in ihren Lebensalltag integrieren - und das fuer
rund 50 Cent ORF-Beitrag pro Tag und Haushalt.

AUSTRIA   O R F - REPORTER CHRISTIAN WEHRSCHUETZ BEKOMMT AUFPASSER IN KIEW

Doublecheck - Offene Attacke gegen Wehrschuetz.

Dass der ORF in seiner Kampfsendung '#doubleckeck' viele Medien ueberaus
scharf und auch unfair kritisiert ist nicht ueberraschend. Dass sogar
eigene Mitarbeiter auf unglaubliche Art und Weise unter Beschuss genommen
werden duerfte es in diesem Ausmass noch nie gegeben haben.

Stefan Kappacher - er ist so etwas wie ein Moechtegern-Armin-Wolf von OE1
- hat gemeinsam mit Rosanna Atzara einen Vernichtungsfeldzug gegen einen
der ganz wenigen wirklich kompetenten Mitarbeiter des ORF gestartet: Gegen
Christian Wehrschuetz, den Ukraine- und Balkan-Korrespondenten des ORF.

Wehrschuetz gilt in den deutschsprachigen Medien als der beste Kenner und
mutigste Berichterstatter ueber den tobenden Konflikt zwischen Vladimir
Putins Russland und der Ukraine und er kennt auch auf dem Balkan Gott und
die Welt. Nun wollen ihm seine redaktionsinternen Gegner einen Strick
daraus drehen, dass er sich - erstmals in mehreren Jahrzehnten - ein
russisches Fake-Video habe unterjubeln lassen.

Aehnliches duerfte schon unzaehligen anderen Sendungsmachern passiert
sein, ohne dass es jemals erkannt wurde. Schliesslich arbeiten in Laendern
wie Russland (und sehr wahrscheinlich auch in der Ukraine) kompetente
Spezialisten unentwegt daran, solche irrefuehrenden Propagandavideos zu
produzieren, um Stimmung fuer das eigene Land und gegen den politischen
Gegner zu machen. Viele davon sind so perfekt gemacht, dass kaum sie
jemand in Zweifel zieht und als Faelschung erkennt.

Nicht einmal den Grund fuer den offensichtlichen Hass der breit auf-
gestellten linken Gesinnungsgemeinschaft in der ORF-Redaktionsmannschaft
gegenueber Wehrschuetz hat '#doublecheck' verschwiegen. Woertlich hiess es
da: 'Wehrschuetz hat FPOE-Hintergrund.'  Allerdings erkennt man das als
neutraler Zuhoerer bei Christian Wehrschuetz nicht, im Gegensatz zu vielen
seiner Redaktionskollegen, die in Berichten und Interviews nie verbergen
koennen, wie sehr sie rot-gruen indoktriniert sind.

Man kann ziemlich sicher sein, dass der Angriff von '#doublecheck' gegen
Wehrschuetz erst den Auftakt zu einem ORF-internen Krieg gegenueber dem
erfolgreichsten Korrespondenten des Senders bildet. Das duerfte auch
Wehrschuetz bewusst sein, denn er hat ein Interview mit '#doublecheck'
verweigert.
Ein wirksames Rezept, dem auch viel mehr Politiker folgen sollten.

BULGARIA   Bulgarian National Radio and the Voice of Vietnam Radio agree
to cooperate with radio programs, etc.

"BNR and the Voice of Vietnam agree to cooperate in modern radio formats
(published on Sept 15 at 4:39 PM)

VOV delegation visits BNR.
<https://static.bnr.bg/gallery/cr/medium/

The Bulgarian National Radio and the Voice of Vietnam Radio will cooperate
in radio programs, podcasts and video-casts, as well as in exchange of
footage. This was agreed upon by the managements of the media during a
visit of a Vietnamese delegation to Sofia.

Voice of Vietnam Radio Vice President, Tran Minh Hung, has recalled the
"wonderful ties in the past" and expressed a desire to build on them.
"We are thinking about connections in the field of culture, for content
such as music and podcasts. We have things to share," he added.

Director General of BNR, Milen Mitev, pointed out that sharing of ex-
perience between such different countries, including by producing a
radio series about the culture, customs and sights of Bulgaria and
Vietnam, could expand the knowledge and experience of journalists."

COLOMBIA/VENEZUELA   Fwd: Venezuela or Colombia, Estacion 4940 kHz,
identification and email { ... }

Bill, you have perfectly summarized the state of our knowledge about the
activity on 4940kHz, at least as it existed up until this week. But every-
thing may have just changed.

Imagine how surprising it was to see in CADENA DX the report of a formal
eQSL received by Santiago San Gil from La Montana for 4940 kHz !

I am still trying to process this quite unexpected turn of events.
It seems there are only two possibilities. Either the 4940 kHz religious
broadcaster IS the reported "La Montana", as the QSL seems to assert, or
this is a very nicely executed hoax.

<https://www.facebook.com/groups/531629043622500/posts/6529749340477077/>

Re: Venezuela or Colombia, Estacion 4940 kHz, identification and email

From S_W_B on Sept 18, 2022:

"La Montana Colombia" was the name used to refer to an unidentified reli-
gious pirate operating on 4940 kHz AM. In September 2022 another TDoA was
run using a better selection of receivers and the station was found to be
in Venezuela (not Maico, Colombia). It is not known who operates the sta-
tion or where its exact location is. The name "La Montana Colombia" ori-
ginated when the station advertised a Colombian religious movie called "La
Montana" and this was mistaken as the identification. The station operates
24/7 h/d. It seems that it uses relatively high power and or an unusually
efficient antenna because it can be heard with a good signal nightly dur-
ing winter in North America.

Frequency is very stable and is close to 4940.00 kHz. It normally relays
the programs of Fuerza de Paz and has also been mistakenly identified as
such.

One listener contacted the QSL manager of Fuerza de Paz about the station
and received a reply stating that Fuerza de Paz does not operate the sta-
tion or know its identity and the programs are taken from a website. Music
played on the station is a mix of Colombian and Venezuelan origin. The
station appears to be operating from an area very close to the border bet-
ween those two countries. It has been heard giving the Venezuelan time,
originally causing people to think that it is located in that country.

No station identifications are ever given. Some have speculated that its
reason for not providing an identification or contact method is to prevent
DXers from bothering it with reception reports.

CUBA   11435 kHz  Unidentified Numbers Station at 1600 UT, with a new
twist. A typical "HM-01" numbers station, mixing data text transfer with
coded voice numbers in 5 digit blocks. But, at 1610 UT, heard what at
first seemed to be CCI from an OTHR radar system, but stayed on the
channel way too long. Seemed more likely to be coming from the numbers
tx itself. We tried checking 11530 kHz next hour and 11635 kHz after 1800
UT, but couldn't tell due to weak signal. Fair on Sept 7.
(Rick Barton-Sun City-AZ-USA, wor Sept 11)

CUBA   11530 kHz  Unidentified numbers station at 1700 UT.
{of Bejucal Cuba site ? wb.}  Usual mix of digital data text transfers
alternating with Spanish woman and 5 figure number groups, but it was all
RF and no AF. Normal HM-01 tx, no strange noises or tones. Was preceded by
the 1600 UT txion on 11435 kHz, and followed by the usual tx on 11635 kHz
(also poor signal and audio). Signal likely low due to poor condx across
the HF spectrum at the time. Poor Sept 10.
(Rick Barton-Sun City-AZ-USA, wor Sept 11)

CUBA   11635 kHz Unidentified numbers station {of Bejucal Cuba site ? wb.}
at 2110 UT (in progress at tune-in). Normal modulation and strong signal
with usual mix of digital data text transfers alternating with Spanish
woman and 5 figure number blox. Also: we noted none of the really far out
oddities reported by me recently on some other skeds. Very Good Sept 10.
(Rick Barton-Sun City-AZ-USA, wor Sept 11)

CUBA   11462 kHz  Unidentified numbers station at 0530 UT (in progress at
tune-in), typical HM-01 ##s station {of Bejucal Cuba site ? wb.}, mixing
digital mode and vox (5 digit numbers by woman in Spanish). Outstanding
signal, unlike earlier broadcasts at local morning with anemic audio and
signal level. Well over S9, strong modulation, first heard on random dial-
scan on Ross RE-1942 battery portable and whip. On-the-hour, the tx handed
off to 14375 kHz channel, where it was "Fair", and mixing with an RTTY
station. Excellent on Sept. 16.

E.U.   Russians were banned from entering the EU with personal smartphones

The European Commission confirmed the ban on Russian citizens entering EU
countries with personal smartphones, cars and cosmetics. RBC writes about
this

<https://www.rbc.ru/economics/10/09/2023/64fc726c9a79471818cd2333>

citing clarifications from the European Commission. It is noted that the
ban includes cars and other vehicles designed to transport less than ten
people. It does not matter whether they are used for private or commer-
cial transport. Trailers and semi-trailers are also banned.

In addition, Russians are prohibited from carrying personal items, such as
a laptop, smartphone, jewelry and even shampoo. Importing these items may
be considered prohibited imports.

FRANCE   Re:  TDF in DMR Mode. Test outlet for coming B-23 season ?

{Probably has something to do with present "Mini Transat 'La Boulangere',
sailing race from France to Caribean target. see next item below, wb}

Here in New Brunswick, noted TDF with a DRM transmission in French today
(20 September) on 7415 kHz tuning in at 01:35 UT. Wasn't getting much
audio initially but improved continuously to almost constant audio before
the transmitter left the air abruptly at 01:57 UT.

Didn't hear an ID so not sure of source of audio. There was also a line of
text transmitted: "Diffusion DRM assuree par l'operateur TDF". Also sub-
sequently found them in DRM with French on 6015 kHz at 02:20 UT but with
little audio decoding and transmitter off shortly before 02:30 UT. What I
heard sort of sounded like a domestic program rather than RFI but couldn't
be sure. Same text line decoded.

Is there any regular schedule of these TDF transmissions ?
(Richard Langley-NB-CAn, wor Sept 21)

Yes, TDF Issoudun is currently broadcasting on 7415 kHz at 0130-0200 UT
and on 6015 kHz at 0200-0230 UT the RFI program. They carry out towards
different zones, here St Pierre and Miquelon {NoEaCanada} (TDF)
(Jean-Michel Aubier-F, wor Sept 21)

Hi Richard
As far as I can find there is no published schedule of these transmissions

Some have been registered in HFCC in the past, but not this lot. If anyone
has a reliable source of information on these I'd like to know so I can
keep the schedule used by KiwiSDRs updated. At the moment I'm just going
on what people are logging at random, and deleting the entries when no-one
has reported it for a while.

I really think this should be something the DRM Consortium could be doing
rather than publishing the largely fictional schedule on their website.

Transmitter cutting on and off -at-0400z then silent until 0401z, then
off again. Again on/off three times -at-0402z. on/off twice -at-0403z.
-at-0404z on for several seconds then off, then on again with weaker
carrier. no modulation the entire time. -at-0405z modulation distorted
at first, finally arrives, just at the end of World News read by Danielle
Jalowiecka. Newsday begins -at-0406z, then the carrier drops again.
-at-0407z a much weaker signal arrives with clear modulation.

Then off again -at-0408z;
a stronger dead carrier arrives -at-0410z, then drops again -at-0411z,
returning 20 seconds later, still no modulation. Drops again -at-0412z.
Dead carrier returns much stronger -at-0413 for only a few seconds before
dropping again. Returns weaker, and still no modulation -at-0414z. Drops
again -at-0417z. On again for three short periods -at-0427z, still no
modulation, but carrier much stronger. -at-0429 on again, much weaker,
modulation fades in -at-0430z but never full volume.

Danielle Jalowiecka reading headlines but not strong enough to copy.
-at-0432z stronger modulation. I hear the tail end of a story about loot-
ing spree in Khartoum, Sudan. Australian National University researchers
find a rare palm cockatoo that crafts elaborately decorated drumsticks and
uses them musically. -at-0433z Newsday program continues but modulation
becomes weaker again. -at-0435z modulation improves carrier still weak.

Concerning Switzerland future FM sce, there seems to be a new development:

"Bakom is currently examining an extension of the VHF radio licences until
2026 and will prepare an amendment to the corresponding ordinance for this
purpose," Bakom spokesman Francis Meier told Keystone-SDA. The Federal
Council will probably decide by the end of 2023 whether to approve the
extension.

Switzerland is due to switch off all FM services on 31st December 2024.
Coverage is 99.5% of the population.

An advantage of DAB in hilly / mountainous areas, as there are in those
two countries, is that it doesn't suffer from multipath, something I no-
ticed when living 3 miles from Whitby in the Esk Valley halfway up a steep
hill with another higher one on the opposite side of the valley in the 60s
and early 70's. FM services in the UK are guaranteed until at least 2030.

U.K.    End of BBC R4 LongWave  -  unforeseen consequence (?)
From: Paul Crankshaw-UK
Date: Tue, 12 Sept 2023

BBC Radio 4 LW on 198 kHz currently supports the Radio Teleswitching
Service (RTS) which enables electricity suppliers to switch meters between
different energy tariffs such as Economy 7 or Economy 10 and helps deliver
specific savings for customers who use electricity for their heating and 
hot-water provision. It is used when customers don't have a smart meter.

The original plan was to fit a smart meter in every home in the UK by 2020
but this  was scrapped in 2019 when the UK Government realised there was
no chance of it being met. The new target date is 2025 but that won't
be met either.  BBC R4 LW is due to go off in 2024.

This article, written from a Scottish perspective, points out that in
Shetland, for example, only 7% of households have smart meters and only
4 of Scotland's 32 local authorities have 50%+uptake of smart meters.

U.K.   Langwelle weiterhin auf dem Rueckzug.

Unter dem Titel "LangwellenradioFans beklagen schwindende Frequenzen" ver-
oeffentlichte die britische BBC am 5. September einen laengeren Beitrag
auf ihrer Internetseite. Dem Bericht zufolge sendet die BBC weiterhin
Radio 4 auf Langwelle sowie ueber Digitalradio, UKW und online. Die ge-
trennte Ausstrahlung von BBC-Radioprogrammen auf Langwelle wird jedoch im
Maerz naechsten Jahres eingestellt. Die langfristige Zukunft der BBC-
Langwellenprogramme ist alles andere als sicher, so der Bericht.

Noch in den spaeten 70ern gab es Dutzende Langwellensender, die auf
Sendung waren - heute ist lediglich eine Handvoll geblieben. Der BBC-
ericht verweist auf verbliebene Sender in Rumaenien, Polen, Algerien,
Marokko und der Mongolei. Die BBC habe bisweilen noch nicht bestaetigt,
wann genau sie die Langwellenuebertragungen einstellen wird.

Das Privatunternehmen Arqiva sei Eigentuemer und Betreiber des Senders
Droitwich in Worcestershire sowie zweier weiterer Sender in Schottland.
Alle drei senden Radio 4 auf der Langwellenfrequenz von 198 kHz.

In einer Erklaerung von Arqiva heisst es: "Die derzeitigen Langwellennetze
sind seit 36 Jahren in Betrieb und sind sehr energieintensiv."

Zudem verweist man auf erhebliche Investitionen, die fuer einen weiteren
Betrieb noetig seien. Einigen Berichten zufolge sei der Unterhalt des
Langwellendienstes zu teuer geworden, vor allem angesichts der hohen
Energiepreise, so der BBC-Bericht.

RADIO FREE ASIA announces 27th anniversary QSL.

Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces its latest QSL card commemorating 27 years
of bringing the news to a weekly audience of nearly 60 million people in
Asia living under oppressive regimes or in media environments vulnerable
to authoritarian propaganda. Through journalism grounded in accuracy,
accountability and trust, RFA brings to light consequential developments
in China, North Korea, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, as well as
the Pacific Island region and Oceania. This is RFA QSL card number 83 and
will be used to confirm all valid RFA reception reports from September to
December 2023.

Created by Congress in 1994 and incorporated in 1996, Radio Free Asia
(RFA) broadcasts in Burmese, Cantonese, Cambodian, Korean to North Korea,
Lao, Mandarin (including the Wu dialect), Vietnamese, Tibetan (Uke, Amdo,
and Kham) and Uyghur.

RFA strives for accuracy, balance, and fairness in its editori-al content.
As a 'surrogate' broadcaster, RFA provides news and commentary specific to
each of its tar-get countries, acting as the free press these countries
lack. RFA broadcasts only in local languages and dialects, and most of its
broadcasts comprise news of specific local interest. More information
about Radio Free Asia, including our current broadcast frequency schedule,
is available at
<www.rfa.org>

RFA en-courages listeners to submit reception reports. Reception reports
are valuable to RFA as they help to evaluate the signal strength and
quality of the transmissions. RFA confirms all accurate reception reports
by mailing a detailed QSL card to the listener. RFA welcomes all reception
report submissions at

<http://techweb.rfa.org>
(follow the QSL REPORTS link) not only from DX'ers, but also from its ge-
neral listening audience. Upon request, RFA will also send a copy of the
current broadcast schedule and a station sticker. Reception reports are
also accepted by email to

{typical Tashkent-UZB fq oddity rough accuracy deviation, wb.}

on Sept 14 at 1523 UT, 'VOMK Maldives' service is way off-frequency,
first time ever noted such, as measured direct; after the Missouri SDR

WWV 10000.000 even; 1459 UT open carrier, 1500 UT s/on in English, 1501 UT

All the evidence points to RBA Kununurra Australia being the true site for
this. Reception inferior today into NothAmerica with geomag disturbance,
only S8/S9 but still no signs of transpolarity. Also, on HCDX, Craig Tyson
in Perth-AUS says, "Heard at very good strength signing on at 1500 UT on
11620 kHz in English on the Sep 12 here in Perth. Very likely this is from
KNX as the signal strength and fading patterns were very similar to 11825

As soon as we are more or less convinced it's the RBAustralia Kununurra

"re 11620 kHz  1500-1530 UT site - Sorry, wrong info, Reach Beyond Austra-
lia confirmed now, that it is  n o t  (any more?) via them. So maybe
TWN or TAC. Best regards, Mauno". I still say it's not Tashkent-UZB.
I also compare it to 11825 kHz, RBA in Burmese: weaker S9 HLNL, and slight
wobble of carrier, similar to 11620 kHz.

At 1527 UT I try one of the five KiwiSDRs on Taiwan, BM2KVV #1: 11620 kHz
is JBA and on-frequency. Of course that is inconclusive, as could be too
far for groundwave and too close for skywave. I wonder which of the five
may be real close to any of the three major SWBC sites on island ?

From my angle it's not Tashkent. But Wolfgang Bueschel says 11620 kHz

UZBEKISTAN/TURKEY   Denge Gel on 11510 kHz frequency.

Denge Gel (Voice of the People) has a new schedule according to their web-
site. The station was previously called Denge Welat.

Translated from denge-gel.org "Our radio, the Voice of the People, goes to
the winter frequency. From September 15 onwards, our radio will broadcast
on 2 frequencies. According to this, the new frequencies are as follows.

Diyarbakir time from 06.30 to 19.00 LT on frequency 11540 kHz. It is on
the frequency of 7460 kHz from 19.00 to 01.00 LT."

Converted to UTC this would be 0330-1600 UT on 11540 kHz and 1600-2200 UT
on 7460 kHz. Presumably this is via Tashkent-UZB.

However, I found them at 1115UT today (16 September) on 11510 kHz instead,
matching the live stream on their website.

They were previously on the 16 metre-band around 17450-17485 kHz, shadowed

UZBEKISTAN/TURKEY   Re:  Denge Gel on 11510 kHz ?
Denge Gel has started using alternate frequencies to avoid the Turkish
jammer. Noted today at 06:40 UT on 11540 kHz, with Erdogan speech on 11520
kHz. When Pridnestrovye was used in the past, signal strength here in the
U.K. was much stronger. Probably still via Tashkent.
(Alan Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K., wor Sept 20)

{ KURDISTAN [non] }  11540 kHz, on Sept 20 at 1500 UT, sounds like Turkish
music, i.e. jammer against and/or Denge Gel, which recently quit the
17 MHz band for 11510 kHz, but once jammer caught up, into the cat-and-
mouse jumparound. No other significant signals now below 11600 kHz such as
11510 kHz. Later 11540 kHz confirmed as I see this Sept 20 on the WOR iog.

re  KURDISTAN  (target radio to Kurdish national people in Near East 
target) nothing heard around 09.30 UT on Thursday Sept 21 in 25 meterband
remotedly in southern Germany, nor Athens Greece, nor Doha Qatar Perseus
SDR installation units.

TURKEY  - re 11540 kHz ... 25 meterband ... on the other hand, the Turkish
radio signal Jammer of the Turkish MIT intelligence service, as an instru-
ment of oppression of the Osmanic state against Kurdish people, has been
observed on the channel
11520.012 kHz
at 09.32 UT, part of Turkish oppression since the peace treaty of Lausanne
Suisse some 100 years ago / on the necessary establishment of a state of
Kurdistan in future, since the decline of the Osmanic Empire in Constanti-
nople in 1922 year.

11520.012 kHz  heard Near East Turkish style singer and string instrument
music of S=9+20dB strength in southern Germany, Greece and Qatar units.

13635.010  TUR   Another TRT Emirler broadcast in Turkish,
scheduled 06.00-12.57 UT noted at S=9+5dB level in Doha Qatar, 09.45 UT.

UZBEKISTAN  [non Australia origin towards MALDIVES target]
11620 kHz, Sept 20 cuts on late at *1500.5 UT, VOMK in unreadable English,
S6 / S=9+10dB signal; by 1503 UT changed to the YL in presumed Dhivehi.
Propagation degraded so not as strong as usual, but more than one could
expect from Uzbekistan site rather than Australia. Which is continuing to
be a matter of controversy; another possibility is that more than one site
may be in use on different days.

VANUATU   Radio Vanuatu back to the air on 3945 kHz.
Vanuatu today Sept 14, 0633 UT on 5040 kHz, heard via SDR Kiwi remote re-
ceivers in New Zealand, no signal here in Reinante, NoWe of Spain.

At 0659 UT closed on 5040 kHz and open on 3945 kHz.

VANUATU   3945 kHz  Radio Vanuatu, Port Vila, 0649-0708 UT on Sept 13,
only very weak carrier detected here in Reinante, NoWe of Spain. Checked
via SDR Kiwi remote receivers in New Zealand, on air with its usual
program, Bislama, English, Island songs, interval signal and identifica-
tion. Fair to good signal. It is a shame for me that Vanuatu does not re-
turn to 7260 kHz, because 3945 kHz is inaudible here and 7260 kHz could be
heard at dawn. It could be heard here before in the 3945 kHz harmonic of
11835 kHz, but now there is no such harmonic.

VANUATU   Radio Vanuatu schedule. I did some checks on Radio Vanuatu
yesterday and today (17 & 18 September) using the Brisbane KiwiSDR in
Australia and the current schedule appears to be as follows:

1830v-1958v on 3945 kHz
1959v-0658v on 7260 kHz  {see log above, likely 00.00-0659v, wb.}

I am open to correction.

VIETNAM   Voice of Vietnam absence ?
9840 and 12020 kHz Voice of Vietnam is missing this morning from these two
of its usual frequencies. Together with yesterday's absence from 11885kHz,
it has me concerned that they may be dropping their nonVietnamese language
services. Anyone have any info about it? They do seem to be on 11720 kHz
in Vietnamese, competing with CRI.

68. UKW-Tagung - Viele erlebten die "Freude am Hobby"

Ein bunter Mix aus hochkaraetigen Vortraegen, Haendlerbeteiligung, Floh-
markt, Camping und auch Geselligkeit zog viele Besucher aus Nah und Fern
zur 68. UKW-Tagung am Wochenende 8. bis 10. September nach Weinheim.

"Der Campingplatz ist um 40 % voller", freute sich Peter Wehrle, DL3PW,
von der Tagungsleitung. Und auch sonst hatte der veranstaltende FACW e.V.
mit dem OV Weinheim (A20) wieder gross aufgefahren: Drei Vortragssaele
waren am Samstag von morgens bis in den spaeten Nachmittag in der
Dietrich-Bonhoeffer-Schule Weinheim voll bestueckt.

DL3PW unterstrich im persoenlichen Gespraech, dass die Tagung bewusst kon-
ventionell auf den Praesenz-Charakter Wert lege, weil hierin der Mehrwert
der Veranstaltung laege. So gibt es keine YouTube-Aufzeichnung,sondern die
Tagungsgaeste konnten persoenlich auf dem Flohmarkt stoebern, bei IT-ler
Daniel Fett erfahren, was es mit Kuenstlicher Intelligenz auf sich hat,
bei Peter Welke DK1AA, lernen, wie man den besten DX-Standort fuers Eigen-
heim auswaehlt oder elektrotechnische Sicherheitsaspekte von Solaranlagen
bei Dirk Barthelmes, DL5IN, erlernen.

Nicht zu vergessen die Keynote von Andreas Spiess, HB9BLA, der schon zu
Tagungsbeginn feststellte, dass der Amateurfunk eigentlich schon seit
langem "digital" sei: die Morsetelegrafie als eine der ersten "digitalen
Betriebsarten", im Laufe der Zeit wurden die Filter digital(DSP), dann kam
die Software und nicht zuletzt wurden es die Amateurfunkgeraete dann auch
(SDR). Auch sprach er den "Dauerbrenner" FT8 an - das "kontroverse Stamm-
tischthema", so HB9BLA. Wichtig aber sei doch, dass man - egal wie - die
"Freude am Hobby" erleben koenne, so HB9BLA weiter.Alle Vortraege sind wie
ueblich im Tagungsband in Gaenze nachzulesen.

Die Freude war an vielen Orten der Tagung praesent,das naechste Mal wieder
in der letzten Ferienwoche von Baden-Wuerttemberg, vom 6. bis 8. September
2024 in Weinheim an gleicher Stelle.
