ALASKA{non}/IRAN/KUWAIT/LITHUANIA   Alaska AM DX Audio.
Recorded in McGrath-ALS, with a CCrane Skywave & DeBock 5" FSL Antenna

 936 kHz IRN  IRIB Radio Azarbayjan Gharbi, Fesanduz, Iran on Sat Oct 16
at 1512 UTC with  woman talking, fair to weak signal. Match to stream!
300 kW via 5460 mile transpolar path.

1026 kHz IRN  IRIB Radio Tabriz, Azarshahr, Iran on Sat. Oct 16th at
1458 UTC with what sounds like a man talking on the phone. Fair signal.
Match to stream 200 kW via 5460 mile transpolar path.

1071 kHz IRN  IRIB Radio Ma'aref Tartus, Iran on Sat. Oct 16 at 1517 UT
with brief musical interlude followed by a man talking. Fair signal but
lots of atmospheric noises clutters the signal a bit. Match to stream
100 kW via 5460 mile transpolar path.

1386 kHz LTU  Radio Baltic Waves International, Viesintos, Lithuania on
Mon Oct 18 at 1549 UT woman talking in a Slavic language. I've heard them
much better than this before. 75 kW via 4239 mile transpolar path.

1413 kHz MDA  Vesti FM, Grigoriopol, Moldova Sat Oct 16 at 1616 UT. Man
talking in Russian  on phone and female host in studio. Poor to fair
signal, I've heard them much stronger than this before. 500 kW via 4825
mile transpolar path.

1449 kHz IRN  IRIB World Service, Bandar-e Torkaman, Iran in Turkmen on
Sat Oct 16 at 1510 UT. Signal is pretty decent with a bit of a het from
KLAM 1450 - 300 miles away but gets abundantly clear just a little over
into the recording. I'm guessing at the rate at which the guy is talking
and a few of the words I pick out, this is some kind of religious recita-
tion / speech. 400 kW via 5835 mile trans-polar path.

1512 kHz IRN  IRIB Radio Ardabil, Ardabill Iran on Fri Oct 15 at 1611 UT
with somewhat lively chat between two men. It was not the 1 megawatt Saudi
and I was able to confirm that because the content I heard on 1512 kHz
matched the Iran webstream. 50 kW via 5320 mile transpolar path.

1548 kHz KWT  Radio Sawa via al Kuwait, on Fri Oct 15 at 1623 UT with what
sounds like a promo announcement by a woman then a man begins talking.
Fair signal but some atmospheric noise. 600 kW via 5927 mile transpolar
path.

ANTARCTIC  ARGENTINA    LRA 36 new team in 2022 year.

"Four women will be in charge of LRA36 Radio Nacional in Antarctica.

Romina Zabalza is one of the three producers who, together with a techni-
cal operator, make up the team that in 2022 will be in charge of LRA36
Radio Nacional Arcangel San Gabriel, which operates in Antarctica Argen-
tina and broadcasts from Base Esperanza, on 15476 kHz 19-meter shortwave
band and 97.6 MHz FM.

Romina told us that she is a dentist, a native of Tucuman, that she be-
longs to the Navy and that she will travel next February with her family
to the Esperanza Base to join the 2022 work teams.

Together with the producers Maria Rodriguez, Claudia Albarracin and the
technical operator Mariela Churquina, she is undergoing the corresponding
training to take on the task during the summer and for the whole of next
year.

He expressed that it is "an enormous pride" to assume "with a lot of res-
ponsibility" the work in charge of Radio Nacional's radio station and told
details of the official presentation of the new staff held yesterday.

The ceremony was in charge of the Minister of Defense, Jorge Taiana; the
president of Radio y Television Argentina (RTA), Rosario Lufrano; the
vicepresident of RTA, Osvaldo Santoro, and the Director of Radio Nacional,
Alejandro Pont Lezica, among other authorities." Oct 15.

O=3.

TDoA measurement from a few minutes ago.
With 5 stations, the analysis of the samples takes a little longer, so
that the station was no longer in the air.
At DL6ECS in Jena Thuringia there was no sky wave, maybe a weak ground
wave, in any case something could be heard weakly.

KAZAKHSTAN   Kazakhstan Celebrates 100 Years of Radio History.

At the present time, the central Asian nation of Kazakhstan is celebrat-
ing the 100th anniversary of radio broadcasting in their country. It was
in October 1921 that the first radio broadcasting station was inaugurated
in the city of Orenburg, exactly one hundred years ago.

The independent nation of Kazakhstan is the world's largest landlocked
country with no direct access to the ocean, and it is the 9th largest
country in the world, with a population approaching twenty million.
Interestingly, a small section of Kazakhstan, about a hundred miles wide
on the western side of the Ural River, is actually located in Europe,
though the Asian section of their country extends across the territory of
the Great Steppes for perhaps nearly 2,000 miles.

Ancient Kazakhstan was populated by Asian peoples, and sections of the
historic trade route known as the Silk Road traversed through their
countryside. The Kazakh tourist industry is beginning to flourish and
in normal times seven million tourists flock into the country, mainly
from Russia itself.

It was during the mid 1800s that the Kazakh territory was absorbed into
the Russian Empire, and the city of Orenburg became their first, though
temporary, capital city. Interestingly, these days Orenburg is located in
Russia, not in Kazakhstan, though it has a large population of Kazakh
people. It takes a full day to travel by bus from Orenburg to the border
with Kazakhstan itself.

In 1929, Alma Ata (Almaty) became their capital city, and in 1997, a
modern and quite remarkable new capital city was designated, Astana,
which is located in the center of their country. We might also add that
the government announced six years ago (2015) the progressive implemen-
tation of a change over in their written Cyrillic Script to the English
Latin Script.

It was on September 29, 1921, that the Russian government in Moscow an-
nounced their plan to establish a radio broadcasting station for Kazakh-
stan, and it would be located in Orenburg, in southern Russia, and at
least 50 miles north of the border with Kazakhstan. This new radio station
was identified under the Russian callsign RA25, and programming was in the
Russian language. In 1929, this station was listed with 1 kW on longwave
468 kHz. 640 m band.

The Russian government installed a second radio station for Kazakhstan in
1926 and the chosen location was Petropavlovsk, this time within Kazakh-
stan itself, just 30 miles south of the border with Russia. This station
was identified under the Russian callsign system as RA64. The first broad-
casts in the Kazakh language went on the air during the following year on
March 23, 1927. In 1929, this station was listed with 45 kW on mediumwave
857 kHz.

In the middle of last century, a massive number of wired radio stations
were installed throughout the Soviet Union, a system that we would identi-
fy these days as cable radio. At the height of their usage, there were at
least 800 cable radio centers in Kazakhstan feeding a total of anywhere up
to a million radio speakers in public places and in the homes of the
people.

At the same time, a nationwide network of over-the-air-radio broadcasting
stations was also developed; longwave, mediumwave, shortwave, and ulti-
mately FM (European) Band 1 and (International) Band 2. It is known that
home service shortwave stations were established in at least nine dif-
ferent centers.

The first listing in the WR(TV)HB for shortwave transmitters in Kazakh-
stan is presented in the sixth annual edition, for the year 1952. A total
of five shortwave channels is shown, each rated at 10 kW.

It is known that there were two major shortwave stations in Kazakhstan,
both near the city of Alma Ata-Almaty in the southeast of the country,
almost on the border with Kyrgyzstan, another former Soviet republic.
These shortwave transmitters were in use for Home Service programming,
regional and international coverage, and also for the jamming of incoming
shortwave signals from other countries.

The usage of shortwave radio broadcasting for coverage within Kazakstan
began in the middle of the last century soon after the end of World War 2.
The known listings would suggest that shortwave broadcasting transmitters
were installed in about a dozen different regional locations, and that the
power levels varied from quite low up to around 20 kW.

The two major international shortwave transmitter stations were construct-
ed near Alma Ata, and both sites can still be seen on Google Earth. Their
first major shortwave station was constructed at Dmitriyevka north east
from Alma Ata around three quarters of a century ago during the 1950s and
it contained more than 30 transmitters. The shortwave transmitters ranged
in power from very low up to 200 kW, though fourteen of them were rated at
100 kW. At least nine of these transmitters were in use for program broad-
casting, on longwave, mediumwave and FM.

A second large transmitter station was constructed at Karaturk, and this
station contained four shortwave transmitters at 500 kW, and two at
1,000 kW. The Karaturk station was also located north east of Alma Ata,
just a few miles distant from the older station at Dmitriyevka. These two
very large shortwave broadcasting stations near Alma Ata in Kazakhstan
were closed, effective on March 1, 2012.

There were several occasions when the radio programming from Kazakhstan
was carried on other shortwave stations associated with the Russian Fede-
ration. For example in 2000, two shortwave transmitters in the Ukraine,
100 kW each, relayed programming from Kazakhstan for the benefit of
listeners in Europe. The Radio Moscow shortwave network also carried
regional Kazakh programming on many occasions.

For a period of about ten years, towards the end of the last century and
into this new century, several international shortwave stations took out
a relay from Alma Ata. Among these stations were Radio Netherlands, the
Voice of America, BBC London, Vatican Radio, Deutsche Welle, Radio Free
Asia and Trans World Radio. Interestingly, during the year 2001, Alma Ata
also carried a relay of programming on behalf of the independent shortwave
station WRNO in the United States.

We congratulate Radio Kazakhstan on the significant occasion of their
100th anniversary.

Re:  Kazakhstan Celebrates 100 Years of Radio History.

I believe that Almaty also relayed the Democratic Voice of Burma circa
2004 on the frequency of 5905 kHz, as one of several sites used by that
clandestine broadcaster. I made five trips to Kazakhstan from 2002-2005
years and a very large radio tower was quite visible from the Almaty
city center (don't believe this was either of the SW sites in the article
but more likely the domestic AM, FM and TV services).

POLAND   Here's an interesting new entry, not yet active?

SPW  Radio Warsaw - Transatlantic Radio Station Cul [sic].
10 kW ND from Babice, 07-10 UT on 7430 kHz, 07-13 UT on 7415 kHz.

<http://www.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=B21&broadc=SPW>

This station was first registered in 2020 when the friends of the historic
Babice station planned to revive the historic broadcasting site. Between
the First and Second World War Babice was home to the international com-
munications station of Poland and also the site of external broadcasts.
The call sign is reminiscent of the early shortwave station of Polskie
Radio.

ROMANIA   RRI Bucharest website matter.
For several days I get the following when attempting to "surf" to the
Radio Romania International website:

504 Gateway Time-out
nginx/1.15.5 (Ubuntu)

That's <www.rri.ro>

Anyone know what is going on?
Has the Radio Romania International website changed? Or, something else...

I tried just now ... it took about 45 seconds and finally loaded. Slow.
(Arthur Pozner, wor Oct 22)

Re: Radio Romania International Website.

<www.rri.ro>  is too slow; it requires around 15-20 seconds to load.

It is a well known fact, that the Romanian national radio lacks the money
to maintain their hardware and software properly, even less the general
infrastructure. This also concerns RRI where the server went down and had
to be replaced.

"It's been a mess since our website was moved to another server! Sometimes
the website opens far too slowly, sometimes we can't upload the posts,
sometimes the feedback form doesn't work."
From their German listeners' mailbag programme
<https://www.rri.ro/de_de/funkbriefkasten_10102021-2646325>

So the journalists are aware of the problems but can't fix them themselves

German speaking listeners were advised to use e-mail or terrestrial mail
but not the internet feedback form.

For many years its existence was classified, and the construction coincid-
ed with the most difficult period of the Great Patriotic War. Later the
veil of secrecy will be opened and in the 80s they will write:

"October 1942. A super-powerful radio broadcasting station, a giant of the
world radio engineering, has been put into operation".

With the advent of new technologies, VHF and FM broadcasting began to
develop, satellite and cellular communications appeared. The need for a
super-powerful radio station has disappeared.

On May 10, 2005, at midnight, the last transmitter of the radio center was
stopped, and the world's only ultra-powerful underground radio station
went down in history.

RUSSIA   Opening of the Broadcasting Alley in St. Petersburg.

On October 14, the vice-governor of St.Petersburg Boris Piotrovsky and the
director of the branch of the RTRS "St. Petersburg RC" Ruslan Evseev
opened the Broadcasting Alley in St. Petersburg.

The event was timed to coincide with several significant dates. October 1
celebrated 90 years of national television. In August, RTRS celebrated its
20th anniversary. October 14 marks exactly two years since the completion
of Russia's transition to digital television.

The head of the Petrogradsky District of St. Petersburg Ivan Gromov,
Chairman of the Press Committee of the Leningrad Region Konstantin
Viziryakin and representatives of the leading TV channels of
St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region took part in the creation of the
Broadcast Alley and planting trees in the Primorsky Victory Park.

The idea of creating an Alley in the Petrogradsky District of
St. Petersburg is not accidental. It is this area that is historically
considered the center of television and radio broadcasting of
St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region. It was here that the history of
Leningrad television began: in 1938, Gromov's wooden dacha was converted
into a television studio. It hosted the first experimental TV broadcast in
the USSR.

Later, the building of the television center and the main city television
tower were erected on the Aptekarsky Island. On the Petrogradskaya side
there are the first in Russia LETI Electrotechnical University and the
studios of the city's leading TV and radio companies, there is also
a monument to the inventor of radio and radio communications,
Alexander Popov.

The creation of the Alley was witnessed by representatives of specialized
committees of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region, LETI and St. prof.
M.A. Bonch-Bruevich and other organizations directly related to the orga-
nization of television and radio broadcasting in St. Petersburg and the
Leningrad region.

The creation of the alley was fixed by an act, which was signed by all the
participants in the event. He was transferred to the Central Museum of
Communications. A.S. Popov. In the future, it will take its place in the
exposition telling about the development of the TV and radio broadcasting
industry in Russia.

SLOVAK REP/POLAND-Lithuania/ALASKA   QSL
In early October, I received three letters with verification cards from
Slovakia, Poland/Lithuania and the United States.

<https://kolkeradio.blogspot.com/2021/10/qsl-radio-devin-polskie-radio-
knls.html>

The technical department of broadcasting of Radio Devin, which is part of
Rozhlas a televizia Slovenska, responded to my report on the reception of
the station in Moscow. The audition was carried out at a frequency of
1098 kHz on September 22, 2021, 20:00 UTC. Satisfactory, sometimes good
reception with IRIB QRM was noted.

Radio Devin positions itself as a cultural and artistic radio channel.
Music, literary programs, radio performances, etc. are broadcasted on the
air.

The report was sent to Bratislava on 24 September. Reply by regular mail
received on 8 October. In addition to the QSL card, the envelope also
contained a Slovak tourism magazine and a golf brochure.

Polskie Radio replied in Russian to the report dated August 22, 2021.
Reception in Moscow at a frequency of 1386 kHz {via Lithuania, wb.}.
At the end of August in the capital, more or less satisfactory reception
of this frequency had just begun. I assessed the quality of the signal
over SINPO - 35433. During the reception I heard a news release, an expert
comment on the consequences of the Taliban coming to power in Afghanistan
and a music program dedicated to the songwriting of Anna Dabrowska.

On October 7, I found a QSL card in the mailbox dedicated to the
85th anniversary of Polskie Radio. On the postcard there is an inscrip-
tion-motto in 6 languages of the broadcast of "Polish Radio" - "We broad-
cast to the whole world!". By the way, on the occasion of the anniversary,
a special website has been created

<https://www2.polskieradio.pl/85/>

- The Russian section of KNLS Alaska has sent a new QSL card with the
image of the Tracy Arm Fjord in Alaska and a quote from the Bible
(John 3:32 "And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you
free").

The reception was carried out in Moscow on August 9 at a frequency of
9800 kHz at 15.00 UT. The signal was bad, but it is unusual that at this
time of year it reached from Alaska to Moscow.

The answer came from the United States on October 7th. The envelope also
contained a small radio station pennant.

USA   7489.9v kHz, Oct 23 from 0000 UT, WBCQ webcast with 'AAAWWW'. Not as
overmodulated as before but still too much. Immediately equates Democrats
with communists, nazis and moonbats, another show railing against all
that's wrong with a non-Trump-controlled America. I don't need this, so
dip in only occasionally during the hour. Seems to start complaining about
Superman turning gay. 0019 interrupted by call from Mr. Rabishu, who says
he hasn't listened to news since 2019, instead monitors hams: some in
California about discouraging gas-powered tools such as chainsaws, setting
off A&A on another rant. "Build Back America Better" is BS, per Allan.

Servitude was accepted back then 200-300years ago by good people - so give
them a break? But we know now it was wrong. Last few minutes, skimming
a few FRW items, prayer and off. John Carver's version:

"Tonight's show started on time on 4790, 6160, and 7490 kHz this evening
with the best signal being 7490 kHz. Allan and Angela in the studio. Show
starts immediately with a rant from Allan about the changes to the Super-
man slogan. He refused to say what it had been changed to but I'm guess-
ing it no longer ends with Truth, Justice and the American way.

Then he asks about "woke" movement is all about and also asks about Criti-
cal Race Theory. Then into the price of fuel, inflation and politics.
Phone call at 0018 UT but I can't make out caller or the question as all
three frequencies have gotten terribly noisy. Then into vaccine talk after
the phone call. Another phone call at 0026 UT and then into talk about
statues being removed or destroyed.

Phone call at 0038UT that Allan calls Pastor. At this time the best signal
I can get out of the three frequencies is an S3. Then Allan plays some
sort of audio from the Pastor that had just been on the phone. Maybe a
sermon? Reading of emails at 0056 UT along with a very brief scan of the
new Free Radio Weekly. Closing prayer at 0059 UT and off air at 0101 UT.
John, Mid-North Indiana".
