ANTARCTICA   After 1830 UT today Aug 8, LRA36 much improved as Base
Esperanza was nearing local sunset - in fact from TF4AH SDR in WeIceland
it was almost armchair level from 1916 to past 2005 UT, with less noise
than the Brazilian SDRs - so overall the best SDR site for today, anyway.
But - at 1735 UT it was barely audible in Iceland. Many LRA-36 ID's and at
1918 UT, the hi-speed CW you mentioned was hrd again. Argentinian folk
songs (could not ID any on Shazam) mixed with lots of chatter with a
female host.
(Bruce Churchill-CA-USA, wor Aug 8)

ANTARCTICA   15475.98-CUSB kHz, Sat Aug 8 at *1629 UT, LRA36 comes on with
fast CW message I am not prepared to copy or record, 1630 UT into song,
1633 UT ID for 'Corazon Antartico' Wed 11-13 LT show. This is the well-
publicized Saturday special supposedly starting at 1700 UT and staying on
for 24 hours. From previous experience we know to tune in at least half an
hour early for the runup, so I've been listening since 1617 UT via Brazil
remote which gets it at S2-S3.

The best one, Pardinho is not available, and Dan Robinson says it's now by
password only. Usual fill of mostly songs, 1645 UT another canned ID;
1656UT plays the Morse code again and this time believe I can copy "LRA36"
toward the end of it. Then voice IDs in Spanish, German, English and
Russian; "Nacional presenta: Corazon Antartico", starting a few minutes
early, into "live" mostly YLs, with G.C. of Esperanza Base, staff credits,
and more chatter. I have to switch to a different Brazilian KiwiSDR at
1717 UT, S1-S2 or S3 but more local noise. 1737 UT break for a song and
then more talk. Altho publicized as an SSB test as if that were something
new, it still has a residual reduced carrier, obvious when downtuned to
15475-USB.

ARMENIA  7500kHz 300kW Radio, Menschen und Geschichten am 16. August 2020

Werte Hoerende,
Kleider machen Leute, Ereignisse machen Sendungen. Nach laengerer Pause
treibt es das Rundfunkballett Eifel  wieder auf die Bretter, die die Welt
bedeuten. Da Ballett im Radio aehnlich spannend ist, wie Zeitunglesen
unter Wasser, verdingen sich die Prachtelf: Innen dieses Hoerfunkelaborats
sprechenderweise an kommenden Sonntag (16 Aug 2020)

Hier schon mal 2 der 3 geplanten Themen:

Liechtenstein.  Am 15. August 2020 wird Radio Liechtenstein 25 Jahre alt.
Damit ist Liechtenstein eines der Laender, die erst sehr spaet einen
eigenen Rundfunksender bekamen. Dabei reicht die Idee, in dem kleinen
Fleckchen Erde zwischen der Schweiz und Oesterreich ein eigenes Programm
auf die Beine zu stellen bis in die 1930er Jahre zurueck.

Wir haben in den Archiven gegraben und erzaehlen die Geschichte des
Rundfunks in Liechtenstein von den ersten Ideen, einer kurzen Sendeperiode
1938/1939 bis hin zu sehr ambitionierten Projekten in den 1970er Jahren,
die alle zum Scheitern verurteilt waren, bis das Land 1995 endlich seinen
Landessender bekam.

Andorra.  Vor fast 40 Jahren wurde das legendaere Radio Andorra von den
Behoerden geschlossen. Seit 1981 steht das imposante Sendergebaeude in
Encamp, etwas ausserhalb der Hauptstadt des Fuerstentums leer.
Die Restaurierungs- und Reinigungsarbeiten begannen vor 6 Jahren.

Das Nationalarchiv Andorras und Private Firmen haben versucht zu retten,
was noch an Substanz da war. Doch dann ein Rueckschlag: Asbest.
Wir sprechen unter anderem mit Mireia Garcia von RETOC restauracio, die an
den Arbeiten massgeblich beteiligt war ueber den Stand der Arbeiten.

Zu hoeren wird die Sendung wie immer als Podcast zu sein, aber auch auf
Kurzwelle mit leckeren - was soll der Geiz, so jung kommen wir nie wieder
zusammen - 300 kW Richtung Europa aus Armenien an einer
HR8/8/1 Richtantenne {aus Gavar Armenien}.

Das macht 'ne schnuffige Strahlungsleistung von approximativ 10 Megawatt
und ergibt 'ne schoene Braeunung. Optisch, wenn man zu nah am Radiator
steht, notabene, nicht inhaltlich, dafuer sind andere zustaendig.

So fern- so nah. Eine Kulturgeschichte der Telekommunikation

In der oesterreichischen Zeitschrift "Die Briefmarke" - 6/2020
ist eine Briefmarke aus der DDR / Wert10 / 125Jahre UIT mit dem Motiv
"Hughes-Apparat"abgebildet und der nachfolgenden Beschreibung:

"Anstelle einer Morsetaste besitzt der Hughes-Apparat eine Klaviatur mit
28 Tasten, die Buchstaben, Ziffern und Satzzeichen darstellen.
Ein Empfaenger konnte das Telegramm sogleich lesen".

Auch eine Abbildung von einem Morseapparat um 1905, der dem Empfang von
Nachrichten dient, findet sich bei der Information ueber eine Ausstellung
im Innsbrucker Zeughaus. Die zum Senden benoetigte Morsetaste wird hier
nicht gezeigt und konnte an das Geraet angeschlossen werden. - heist es

4750even kHz. Spoken part from radio studio is much overmodulated and
distorted audio to mention, but after switch to music record play the
distortion appeared on lower level.

The bandwidth is abouth 5.8 kHz, no QRM and no pre-amplifier switched on,
no 'peak' level clicked.

the audio signal is really so terrible, not a man-made mistake by Yours

CNR Hailar China at 16.18 UT is exact on 4749.987 kHz weak and tiny.
No INS audio string visible at this time anymore.

Stay safe & healthy.

CHINA   Chinese Terrestrial analog TV will be completely switched over to
digital.

According to Chinese information site Cahcn

<https://cahcn.github.io/posts/2020-04-10.html>     posted on July 30,

China National Radio and TV Administration ordered all terrestrial
analog TV stations to close and switch over to digital system from June
15, 2020, following the "Terrestrial Digital TV Development Plan" set in
2012.

(1)  National Network TV stations should close the analog service between
June 15 and August 31, 2020. Even those who are received special
approval of delay by National Radio and TV Administration should close
until December 31, 2020.

(2)  Local TV stations should close the analog service beginning from June
15. The time limit should be decided by the local Radio and TV
Administration, but the national limit is December 31, 2020. Even in
the regions where terrestrial digital TV is delayed, the last limit is
March 31, 2021.

Chinese own digital TV system DTMB (Digital Terrestrial Multimedia
Broadcast) is adopted for their terrestrial digital TV, using UHF
470-770 MHz.

This means TV-DX reception in Japan of Chinese terrestrial analog TV
stations on VHF band will soon be impossible. Mainly via E-sporadic
propagation (occasionally via F2, Spread F, or Troposphere propagation),
Chinese terrestrial analog TV stations have been often received by
Japanese DXers on C1 - C12 VHF channels, especially on lower channels:

C1 (49.75/56.25 MHz), C2 (57.75/64.25 MHz), C3 (65.75/72.25 MHz),
C4 (77.25/83.75 MHz), and C5 (85.25/91.75 MHz).

CHINA   11630 kHz, CNR17 on Aug 4 (Tuesday), from 1524 to 1534 UT. After
recently checking the weekend schedule for their half hour language
lessons (1230-1300 UT), finally got around to monitoring their later
weekday schedule; heard with the usual multi-language intro ("Hi, Hello,
Ni hao [Chinese for "Hello"], How are you?," etc.); then with only a
10 minute lesson in English ("This is the village ... This is the mountain
... This is the city where I went to university. This is where my mother
went to university," etc.); was only semi-readable; as usual was heard
with the signature background whistling/humming, which makes it very easy
to tell when their language lesson is on the air.

very nice music.
(Manuel Mendez-ESP, wor Aug 9)

Do you find the modulation on 15805 kHz to be very distorted? I hear this
on Brazilian SDRs at quite good levels but the signal is badly distorted
so the otherwise good music is not so good ? ...
(Bruce W. Churchill-CA-USA, wor Aug 8)

SHN made an issue of this some months ago. He knows it's distorted and
requires listening in AM mode instead of SSB.
Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, wor Aug 9)

Re: World Music Radio, 15805, very good signal here in Friol, Spain.

Glenn, That's true, and I only use either narrow AM (usually 4-5 kHz wide)
or SAM - the only USB listening I do is LRA-36 and Warsan Radio (unless
I'm using it to avoid QRM or to sharpen the audio as I had to do yesterday
with AIR Srinagar on 4950 kHz)...however I find the modulation distorted
in all modes of reception. My Brazilian receivers are usually Caruaru
(very near Recife on the horn of Brazil) or Atlantic Ocean Island near
Rio) - today I also tried W1NT in NH and all 3 rcvrs had distorted
modulation.

Channel 292 directional antenna plan.
From: Texas Radio Shortwave
Ahoy Matey Glenn -
On Thursday, Cap'n Ric received an email from Channel 292 with the subject
line "For all customers using 9670 kHz, or plan to do so."
The email reads as follows:

"We are on plan to build a directional beam with some gain for 9670 kHz.
It would be rotatable 360 degrees. This would enable you to reach your
target area with a stronger signal, while the other areas might get a
weaker one.

So, if we build this antenna:
Would you be interested to use it?
Or would you prefer to use the one with more or less non directional
character?

Any questions?

GERMANY   9670 kHz  'Channel 292' Waal Rohrbach Ingolstadt.

At 1650 this Fri Aug 7, I remember that Uncle Bill's shows are now
scheduled on 9670 kHz from Channel 292, Germany, 16-18 UT University
Enschede Twente and e.g. Lisbon SDR have nothing but JBA carriers. At
least there is no CCI or ACI. By 1742 UT some music audible at both,
better at UTwente, but vs lots of noise level. UTw improving, -75 to
-85 dBm. 1750 UT: at UTwente: Seems more splash from faroff 9685 kHz
Urumqi bigsig than from 9665 kHz Pyongyang. As I posted step by step on
the WOR iogroup. Bill Tilford replies:

"Thanks Glenn, We're going to give this one more try next week just to
exclude a bad day at ionosphere rock, if the results are similar we'll
then test a few hours later. We will be keeping our transmissions on
6070 kHz either way, this is a possible addition rather than a substitute.
Bill"

Just now saw this at 2220 checking 9670 on UTwente, nothin but
noise. Glenn, wor Aug 8.

INDONESIA   RRI KW Cimanggis nun endgueltig Geschichte.

Die grosse Vorhangantennenanlage in Jakarta ist seit einiger Zeit
ausser Betrieb, bzw. nach der Verschrottung verschwunden,
wie so viele Center in der westlichen Welt.

Ein grosses Aertztehaus / Hospital auf der Einfahrt errichtet.
Links am westlichen Rand von RRI Cimanggis Terrain
sieht man noch eine {letzte} Tropenband-Antenne ? von 90 mb Ausmassen ?

<https://goo.gl/maps/sbvVY5XPKLcyM9ZV8>

Die Immobilien-Gier Heuschrecken lecken sich die Finger nach solch freien
Flaechen.
Damals vor einem Jahrzehnt im 31 Meterband tagtaeglich zu hoeren:
9525 kHz variabel in internationalen Sprachen, und
9680 kHz variabel im BI Heimatdienst.  (wb, Aug 6)

Ich hatte vorgestern (5. Aug. 2020) folgende von mir recherchierte Infos
an die ADDX uebermittelt:

Der RRI KW-Senderstandort Cimanggis ist nun leider endgueltig Geschichte.

Neueste Aufnahmen von Google Earth vom 30. May und 24. June 2020 zeigen
eindeutig, dass die KW-Sendemasten abgebaut und entsorgt wurden. Das
Antennenfeld gliederte sich in zwei Haelften, eines noerdlich der beiden
Sendergebaeude, die noch stehen, und eines suedlich davon. In einer
Aufnahme vom 31. May 2019 sind die Antennenanlagen noch deutlich erkennbar

Einzig verblieben ist ein einsamer MW-Sendemast Lokation
( 06 23 17.98 S  106 51 36.42 E ) fuer die Programme RRI Pro-3 auf 999 kHz
(24hrs, 150 kW) und RRI Pro-4 auf 1332 kHz (2200-1700 UT, 10 kW).

Die noch sehr gut erhaltenen abgebauten Sendemasten wurden in Container
eingelagert und warten dort auf eine spaetere Verwendung. Das 150 ha
grosse Gelaende gehoert dem indonesischen Staat und wird vom
Informationsministerium fuer elektronische Massenmedien - Radio Republik
Indonesia - verwaltet.

Inzwischen wurden 142 ha davon an das Religionsministerium uebertragen,
damit die geplante Universitas Islam Internasional Indonesia (UIII)
Wirklichkeit werden kann. Damit verblieben gerade mal 8 ha beim
indonesischen Staat, 4,7 ha davon werden fuer digitale terrestrische
Verbreitungswege hergerichtet.

Die auf dem Restgelaende verbliebenen Hauseigentuemer koennen weiterhin
wohnen bleiben, wenn sie bisher schon ueber ein Nutzungsrecht verfuegten,
alle illegal dort Siedelnden muessen das Gelaende raeumen. Es ist nun auch
rege Bautaetigkeit fuer die UIII in Form von Strassenbau und der
Errichtung von Gebaeuden erkennbar.

heute Morgen habe ich mir noch mal die alten Koordinateneintraege

02 11 22.76 S  113 53 45.32 E

es gibt kein wirklich scharfes Imagebild in G.E., G.M. oder Bing Maps
bedingt durch die hohe Luftfeuchtigkeit auf Borneo bzw. den Wolken.

In Google Maps sieht es so aus, als wenn der Bildbearbeiter sogar
den Bereich hinter dem TX Haus 'dunkelgruen willentlich gedimmt' hat.

Das beste Google_Earth. Bildimage ist vom 19. Dezember 2015.

Das ist schon der 10 kW Sender, Anfang August gibt es ein gutes

20 Jahren einen Artikel darueber fuer unser 'weltweit hoeren' verfasst.

Wobei die Modulation seit Monaten alles andere als "gut" ist, da geht viel

Leider hat der Google Maps Mitarbeiter genau den Bereich der
Kurzwellenantenne und des Waeldchens in dunkel-gruener Farbe gedimmt.

Google Earth hat auch nicht gerade superscharfe Images zu bieten,
ist halt die hohe Luftfeuchtigkeit in den Tropen am Aequator geschuldet.

Nur der MW Mast ragt in Google Earth und Google Maps leicht einsehbar bei
heraus.

Und hier der KW Dipolaufhaengungsmast, nahe dem linken Kommunikationsmast
mit Langyagiantennen, die Communications Verbindung vom MW/KW Standort
hinein in die Stadt zum Buerohaus - oder vv.

JAPAN   Japan's NHK to reduce satellite TV and radio channels.

As for domestic radio broadcast, NHK says on August 4 that they will
broadcast 1 program on AM and 1 program on FM.

Now Program 1 (general) and Program 2 (cultural and educational) on AM,
NHK-FM on FM. This means Program 2 on AM will be suspended and the their
frequencies will be reduced. They say the exact date of the suspension
will be fixed in 2021 fiscal year (April 2021 - March 2022).
(Takahito Akabayashi, Tokyo-JPN, via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Aug 7)

With FM thrown into the mix in the NHK document, it could mean that a
combined station is simulcast over FM and AM.

At the same time a TBS-led initiative of commercial broadcasters seeks to
get rid of the mandatory mediumwave distribution, stating that it is not
feasible to invest in a digital future while still having to spend money
on this legacy platform although both listeners numbers and advertisement
revenues dwindle. This was reported by Japan Times on 28 March 2019
(article is no longer online).

Against this background it would be surprising if NHK will keep both
mediumwave chains and use the second one to duplicate its FM program in
future. I don't know if perhaps some of the low power outlets share
infrastructure with ISDB-T, but this network of about 300 transmitters
must cost a fortune to run and maintain.
(Kai Ludwig-D, wor Aug 6)

Thank Kai, I hadn't seen that.

When I was in Japan, TBS and the other commercial broadcasters only had AM
outlets. The expansion of the FM band with the end of analog TV has since
allowed them to all jump onto FM frequencies.

The NHK press release did mention the Internet, so it might be an
indication they are planning to shutter an AM network in favor of
increased reliance on the Internet for distribution.

NHK of course has a legal obligation to provide emergency and disaster
programming that the commercial broadcasters don't, and AM is the only
thing that can reliably reach into all of the valleys across the country,
but they only need one AM network to accomplish that.

Re:  Radio Liberty back on 1386 kHz for Belarus.

Isnt it in fact the complete program production that hereby resumes today?
I understand, but have not looked for a confirmation, that in April 2019,
when RFE/RL considerably cut back their use of Viesintos (after they only
in 2017 provided the former AFN Weisskirchen transmitter for keeping the
Lithuanian mediumwave operation alive), linear radio from their Belarus
department ceased altogether, with no terrestrial outlets left.

The new move does not include booking more airtime. It are still just the
three hours between 1800 and 2100 UT they kept last year, until now used
for Russian which is hereby curtailed to 1900-2000 UT.

By the way, just on Monday there had been another change: Polskie Radio
moved German from a pointless (in the absence of any skywave propagation)
noon slot to 1630-1700 UT. It remains to be seen what will happen on
Oct 25, when this slot would move to 1730-1800 UT (Polskie Radio keeps its
foreign broadcasts always at the same local times) but NHK Russian is
already booked at this time...

USA   "WRMI Radio Miami International - July 14

Longtime listeners to WYFR shortwave (the station that was here before
WRMI took over in 2013) may remember Evelyn Marcy, who was for many years
the assistant to Dan Elyea, the WYFR Station Manager. We are sorry to
report that Evelyn passed away this morning due to complications from an
operation.

A number of Marcy family members have worked at WYFR and/or WRMI,
including Evelyn's husband Ed and her sons Scott and Todd. Scott currently
works as a control room operator at WRMI. Below is a photo of Scott and

USA   WRMI Weather Related Damage at Okeechobee, FL state USA.

Interesting because I'm hearing 7780 kHz tonight but not 7730 kHz.

This appeared on F_B  Short Wave Listening Group today.

Dear WRMI Listeners:  Earlier this week we experienced a severe
thunderstorm in the area of our transmitter site in Okeechobee (just after
Hurricane Isaias passed by). Our power lines were affected by the storm.
We did not lose power fortunately, but there was a power surge which blew
out some lights in our building and also blew out some parts in our
Transmitter #1 which operates on 7780 kHz.

Our engineers have been working on this for a few days now and have
replaced a number of components in the transmitter, but it still needs
more work to get it back on the air. In the meantime, we are
broadcasting all of our programs that are normally on 7780 kHz from
2000-0200 UT on the alternate frequency of 15770 kHz. (This is another one
of our regular frequencies.) Both of these frequencies are on antennas
directed at 44 degrees. We will air these programs on 15770 kHz until we
get the 7780 kHz transmitter back on the air, which we hope will be
tomorrow Friday August 7.

We are very sorry for this situation, but our engineers are working as
quickly as possible to get 7780 kHz back on the air. This transmitter is
normally on the air 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and has been on
this schedule for over a year now, so it really needs a bit of downtime
for technical maintenance. Thanks for your understanding.
(WRMI, C Gessner <w3on -at- comcast.net>  wor Aug 7)

Good news! 7780 kHz is back on the air. Our engineers Don Frish and Harry
Robbins have been working on this for a few days now, and it's back in

USA   UNID religious station on 17510 kHz at 2200 UT.

Via Cypress Creek 250 kW 152 degr. This broadcast is from WHRI according
to HFCC, only 1st day of the week & with 250 kW.

I can't find anyone listed on 17510 kHz except China and India in either
the EIBI or short-wave.info listings, but I heard a religious program,
probably broadcast from the U.S., at 2220-2258 UT Aug 9 on that frequency.

Man preaching in English, also religious songs performed, Bible reading,
prayer, etc. I didn't catch the program's name, and then the signal signed
off suddenly without an ID. Very good signal, but deep fades at times;
SINPO 45333 from my site near Seattle.

Any idea who this might be up there in the 16-meter band?

The VOA Relay That Never Was (Via MARE Don Moore and former MARE Bill
Whitacre and Guy Atkins) The photo below, of Voice of America Road was
taken by Guy Atkins (we have permission to pass it along). It was taken at
a county park a few miles east of Port Angeles on the Olympic Peninsula in
Washington state.

The explanation behind it comes from Bill Whitacre at the VOA, (and recent
MARE member hey Bill you didn't renew at the beginning of the year when
you expired! what's up!?) who years ago found out about it and asked
George Jacobs, the famous VOA engineer. It turns out that this park was
supposed to be VOA's Pacific Coast transmitter site *back in the early
1950s*.

But that was the era when Senator Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin was claiming
that there were tens of thousands of secret Communists in the government.
VOA was one of his targets and he also accused them of financial
mismanagement in the purchase of this property. McCarthy's infamous witch
hunts were going on at the time and VOA just decided to drop the whole
thing and turn the property over to the local government for a park.
(Which, of course, Uncle Sam had bought.)

*Eventually VOA would go on to build west coast stations at Delano and
Dixon in California.* [Now both decommissioned kvz]

(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, hcdx and wor Aug 7)

While the story is interesting, there is an inconsistency in the
timeline which should be cleared:
As far as I know the stations in Dixon (1944-1979, 1983-1988) and Delano
(1944-2007) were built in the 1940s by the big US networks for use by the
Voice of America. It would seem that the station in the North of
Washington was supposed to replace the WW2 installations.

USA   VOA/USAGM / Acting VOA Director Says VOA Urdu Incident Cast Shadow
on Credibility.

<https://bbgwatch.com/bbgwatch/voice-of-america-acting-director-condemns-
biased-voa-election-coverage/>

Acting Voice of America (VOA) Director Elez Biberaj, a longtime VOA
manager with links to Democratic Party politicians selected by new Trump-
appointed U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) CEO Michael Pack for a
temporary assignment until a new director is recruited, called the recent
VOA Urdu Service partisan Joe Biden video incident

<https://bbgwatch.com/bbgwatch/sara-carter-voice-of-america-promoted-a-
pro-biden-muslim-political-campaign-ad-then-removed-it/>

"serious breach of our journalistic standards and a violation of the VOA
Charter..." that "implied VOA's endorsement of a partisan election
message."

The Voice of America Urdu Service enhanced and posted under the VOA logo a
political campaign ad asking the Muslim community both in the United
States and abroad to support Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The ad remained on the official VOA Urdu Service website and social media
platforms for several days. VOA language service and regional division
managers only took action to remove the ad when USAGM leadership asked
about it after receiving outside protests.

Biberaj said in a memo sent to Voice of America staff on August 7 that an
internal investigation is still underway, adding that "appropriate
corrective action is being taken and the editorial approval process in the
Urdu Service has been reviewed and strengthened." He provided no further
details, but USAGM Watch has learned that changes in personnel are
expected.

"Any breach of our journalistic standards has a lasting adverse impact and
it endangers the entire VOA and its mission. This incident has not only
tarnished the work of VOA's Urdu Service, but it has cast a shadow on the
credibility of hundreds of dedicated journalists," acting VOA Director
said in his message to staff.

"In light of this unfortunate incident, we are taking immediate measures
to strengthen our editorial oversight procedures and quality controls
throughout the organization to ensure that all content produced on VOA's
multiple platforms adheres to the principles of our Charter. Every member
of the VOA staff should redouble efforts to ensure strict adherence to our
standards and to the Charter. Only by working together at every level of
VOA can we ensure that our coverage is fact-based, balanced, unbiased and
comprehensive. One incident like this is one incident too many. We must
all be vigilant and proactive in our efforts to prevent anything like this
from happening again."

SW ID. Some CNR2 QRM on my attached brief audio.

0605 UT. A few highlight:

0355-0427 UT: In English; pop songs (Elton John, etc.); 0401-0405 UT, news
(Solomon Islands police strengthening security at the Solomon Islands /
Papua New Guinea common border to prevent the spread of COVID-19, etc.);
0417 UT, telling the story of the life of women's activist Yasmine.

On Aug 8 & 9 (Sat-Sun), there was no English hour (0330-0430 UT), but
instead was in Bislama; on Aug 10-11-12, there was no "Pacific Beat"
program during the English hour.

0427+ UT: In Bislama; 0500 UT, "News Update"; 0509 UT, local Vanuatu
weather; 0600 UT, repeat of a "home schooling" educational program that
was heard last week.

3945 kHz, RV continues to keep broadcasting with non-stop EZL pop songs
after 1100+ UT; heard as late as 1413 UT, on Aug 9, with the usual Black
Brothers song, "You Are The Only One." So it would seem that RV has for a

AUSTRALIA   DRM radio

Tecsun Radios Australia is selling a desk-top DRM receiver: what looks
like a rebadged Gospell GR 216 (The Tecsun Radios Australia Q-3061) for
AUD500 (around GBP285!).

No reviews on their site but a lot of detail and a link to the manual at:

<https://www.tecsunradios.com.au/store/product/tecsun-drm-radio/>

Note they say "This DRM radio has no association with Tecsun of China
and is an exclusive initiative and product of Tecsun Radios Australia"
so presumably not available as a Tecsun elsewhere.

I agree with Simon that the DRM consortium over-hypes the take-up of
DRM. China Radio International (CRI) has been running tests recently in
DRM to Oceania from Kunming, but who is listening?

73, Alan Pennington-UK, BrDXC-UK newsgroup Aug 8

DRM radio.
Hi Paul and group,
I believe that the only DRM Radios in the market today are the GOSPELL DRM
Radios which you can import from China.

I had a Morphy Richards but it was not very good as a receiver and really
I am not sure if the Gospell ones are any better.

The Titus II project that was going to be some sort of RTL SDR build in
the same box as an Android Tablet and promised to sell for less than
100 US Dollars, never materialised.

It is a pity that there are no cheap DMR radios in the market even after
many years of DRM Broadcasts taking place on Shortwaves. Perhaps this is
the reason why DRM is still not so popular among broadcasters. There are
just not many DRM Radios around.

I would like to buy a GOSPELL GR-228BP which is more modern and much
cheaper than the Desktop GR-216 and I hope it will be more sensitive as
well, although I have not read any reviews about it yet. I have read in
some review or discussion about the GOSPELL GR-216 not being a good
receiver. TECSUN Australia sells the GOSPELL GR-216 under another name,
but it is the same DRM radio, like the not very sensitive GOSPELL GR-216.

After all China is one huge factory and probably whatever DRM Receiver
you will ever see from them is going to be GOSPELL. Hi hi hi!!!

It is great pity that all Radio manufacturing factories from the West have
either closed down or they have moved to China and everything is made by
one factory nowadays!
