ALASKA   USCG DRM TRANSMISSIONS FROM KODIAK AK.

I'd like to acknowledge reception our your experimental DRM broadcasts
from Kodiak, AK. I'm located in Victoria, BC, Canada. Although I have
received the data transmissions here, they were much better received
while I was at my cottage located outside of Masset, Haida Gwaii, BC
located off the north west coast of my province of British Columbia,
and about 75 km due south of Ketchikan, AK. My equipment included a
Perseus Software Defined Radio, DREAM software, and an array of
antennas to choose from including a 750' Beverage on ground, aimed to
the NW, a 450' Beverage antenna aimed due north, and a large diameter
magnetic loop (Wellbrook ALA 100LN) aimed NE/SW. I've attached several
screen captures of the images:

These images happen to be from 5200 at 0133 UT on January 14, 2017,
2450 at 0431 and 0410 on January 10th, 2017. More recently, I noted it
in Masset on 2450 kHz at 0500 UTC on March 30, 2017, as well. I'd love
to hear from you, and perhaps receive a QSL to my email address, or by
hard copy to:

Here's an interesting email I received from the USCG concerning the
DRM test broadcasts from Kodiak. I note that the transmissions were
changed a bit from earlier this month. Let's see what that will do
with the reception.

Hi Dr. Walter Salmaniw, Thank you for taking the time to respond and
provide feedback to USCG. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

The Next Generation Arctic Navigational Safety Information System
(ANSIS) project is an ongoing U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Research and
Development Center (RDC) project that is attempting to meet the
challenge of disseminating Maritime Safety Information in the Arctic.

We selected DRM over HF as a means to disseminate this information.
Using DRM allows a data rate that supports detailed weather, ice edge
and maps, and notice to mariner's information, as well as electronic
chart updates. A one year field test is being conducted in Alaska. We
completed installation of the DRM transmitter equipment during the
Week of Oct 23, 2016. We have been working with RFMondial and
Fraunhofer. We are transmitting (at around 800 watts) from Kodiak and
our receive equipment is in Cordova (shore side - using a loop
antenna; and aboard the buoy tender - using a vertical whip).

Next week we are moving the shipboard receive equipment to the
CGC Healy for the summer. We have 10 authorized frequencies to use
between 2.45 and 29.9. But have reduced them to the 6 lowest
frequencies.

Initial research indicates that lower frequencies are best at least in
the winter months, so we developed the attached schedule for
transmissions. During the first six months of the test we transmitted
on a TCI 530 (high take off angle and horizontally polarized) and have
shifted to TCI 550 (lower take off angle and vertically polarized) on
April 7. Test will end in Oct 2017. The goal of the effort is for the
CG to gain some experience with DRM. This experience will be combined
with several other projects working on Iridium satellite, ALE, and
other HF testing. The ultimate goal is to develop a network combining
Iridium and HF to improve interoperability and compatibility between
CG assets and Arctic mariners for sharing maritime safety information.

Eventually, we would like to use the results of this work to be
included in an "Arctic Communications" annex to the ITU-R M.1789
document.

The 2nd channel data is AIS data. We are working with the Marine
Exchange Alaska (MXAK) to transmit AIS weather data via their network
of AIS transmitters using message 8 application specific message
(ASM). This data is also being transmitted via DRM/HF to extend
reception range and to demonstrate DRM capability to modulate a
variety of formats.

The 3rd channel is test data.

Again thank you for taking the time to report your receipt of the DRM
signal. Your write-up and screen captures will be very useful for our
final report. If you have any other thoughts, comments or questions,
please feel free to contact me. Hopefully this email works for a QSL!
Thanks. Reguards, Irene

ANTARCTICA  [non]   Radio Nacional lanza un programa desde la
Antartida 16 April 2017

<https://gruporadioescuchaargentino.wordpress.com/2017/04/16/radio-
nacional-lanza-un-programa-desde-la-antartida/>

Por primera vez en su historia, Radio Nacional emite un programa en
vivo para todo el pais realizado desde en la Base Esperanza de la
Antartida.

Centrado en el dia a dia de la base, el programa se podra escuchar a
traves de las 49 emisoras que Radio Nacional tiene en todo el pais los
sabados de 17 a 17:30.

La emisora antartica vio la luz el 29 de octubre de 1979, pero hasta
hoy se transmitia solo por onda corta, por lo que nunca habia sido
escuchada en todo el pais.

El programa sera conducido por Carla Fassio y Adriana Martinez, dos
esposas de trabajadores de la base que se capacitaron especialmente
para la ocasion en el Instituto Superior de Ensenanza Radiofonica
(ISER), al igual que el programador Guillermo Mamani.

Resultado de imagen para radio nacional arcangel san gabriel [capcion]

Durante el ano, en la Base Esperanza viven 55 personas, entre civiles,
cientificos y militares. Entre ellos hay una medica, dos enfermeras,
una odontologa, dos docentes, doce ninos, y un grupo de militares y
cientificos. Ahora sus historias podran ser conocidas en todo el pais.

Beamed to Africa, this is the sole RFI program in English on

the French presidential election, which was held yesterday. The
transmitter signed off at 0658 cutting off the last bit of the

KOREA  D.P.R.  [target radio broadcast]   Monitoring project on some
Christian programmes to North Korea, of April 2017.

In the DX press, the following programmes aimed at secret Christians
in North Korea are often counted as "clandestine" programmes

1330-1530 7615 (Tashkent UZB 100 kW, 70 degr) Voice in the Wilderness
1530-1700 7510 (Tashkent UZB 100 kW, 76 degr) Voice of the Martyrs
1530-1630 9650 (Palauig PHL?) Tue-Thur, Living Water.

It should be remembered that there are more Christian shortwave programmes
in Korean that are not labelled this way because they are broadcast by
better known stations like Trans World Radio.

During a listening project
<http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/>
at the end of April) the programs from Uzbekistan were only barely
audible.

I would not have tried to compile "programme details" for a regular
reception report. On the other hand, the second programme also featured
segments in simple English with Christian reflections being translated
sentence by sentence into Korean.

{RED Telecom Tashkent uses small band Rhombic antenna type, hence the
signal strength at remote SDR installation at Netherlands Europe sidelobe
azimuth - is much limited, wb.}

The reception of Living Water Ministry is blocked by co-channel
interference from the Voice of the Islamic Republic of Iran, broadcasting
in Arabic from 1430-1730 hrs. Living Water Ministry rents its broadcasting
time via Alyx & Yeyi, which makes a secret about the location of the
transmitters and thus makes this programme look like a
conspirational/clandestine venture.

Following the example of other human rights indices, Christan advocacy
group Open Doors regularly publishes a world index of persecution. For the
15th time in a row, North Korea was ranked as top persecutor of
Christians...

LITHUANIA   Sitkunai 1386 kHz Final Sign-Off.

Occurred this morning Apr 21 at about 0501 UT as monitored/recorded using
the University Enschede Twente SDR receiver. A bit noisy as propagation is
starting to deteriorate as the sun comes up. Is that the Radio Baltic
Waves International interval signal that was played a few times just
before sign-off?

Recording attached. Where does that music come from? Name of tune?

Danke Christian, na dann ist das Teil ja noch fuer einige Jahre gut.
Mir tut es immer sehr weh die Bilder zusehen, wenn gute Technik, wie in
Wertachtal oder Sines mit Dynamit und Schweissbrenner den Bach 'runter
geht'.

Auch die fast neue 8fach gestockte Dipol-Antennenwand in Sitkunai,

in Sitkunai aus dem Jahr 1999/2000, ist bestimmt noch allererste Sahne.

An obscure service. Here's what WRTH 2017 says about it in the
target/clandestine sexion:

Radio Sedaye Bahar, based in USA
<http://sedayebahar.com>  or  <http://voiceofspring.com>

calls itself "Iran Prisoner Radio" and aims at inmates in Iranian
prisons. On SW since April 2016. No address, but phone number
+001 209 210 2072; AC 209 is around Stockton, California.
Had been 1900-1930 UT Thur & Fri on 7510 KCH.

We thought original name Voice of Spring referred to the Iranian new
year, but hardly applicable beyond then. Perhaps "spring" in the
sense of springing prisoners out.

NEW ZEALAND   Just for information - I noticed that the home page and
other pages of the RNZ international service now brands itself as "RNZ
Pacific" (although remnants of RNZI branding still appears). I checked
some on-air announcements (recent on-demand programmes) and find that the
on-air ID currently remains as "RNZI / Radio New Zealand International".
(Alan Roe-UK, dxld Apr 26)

To the extent that public broadcasting budgets are under some degree of
siege (and they are), branding becomes an important factor in explaining
to those not necessarily knowledgeable about such things (meaning the
politicians who approve and disapprove budget items) just what this
enterprise is about.  Rebranding RNZI (Radio New Zealand International) to
RNZ Pacific (to go with RNZ National and RNZ Concert) more clearly defines
the mission of that service by succinctly emphasizing its principal and,
at the same time, anticipates the real potential for casual
misunderstanding that today can spell the difference between continued
tolerance for its existence and an unceremonial demise.

SOMALIA   Monitoring project on some programmes for Somalia, April 2017.

Since the fall of the Siad Barre regime in 1991, Somalia has become the
prime example of a failed state. Somalia is still one of the major target
areas of Western foreign services such as BBC London and Voice of America,
while DXer prefer listening out for hard to hear Somali stations.

The internal problems were soon reflected by several short wave stations
of the different fractions. A last  echo of this are the three short wave
transmitters, which were only rarely or not reported at all in 2017:

 7120 kHz Radio Hargeysa (Somaliland),
 7750 kHz Warsan Radio Baidoa and
13800 kHz Puntland Radio Garowe (Puntland).

Radio Hargeysa broadcasts in the exclusive amateur radio band.
Therefore, an interesting alternative to

<http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/>

is

<http://www.websdr.in/40.html>

In the monitoring period in the late afternoon the station could be
received much better and with less amateur radio interference.
Puntland Radio was also active in April.

Radio ERGO is an international echo of a number of programmes on behalf of
the UN. The programme sponsored by a Danish NGO is broadcast
via al-Dhabayya UAE:

1200-1300 UT 17845 kHz, 250 kW, 225 degr.  {see also item under UAE}

The transmitter comes on the air at 1155 UT already, but the reception

UKRAINE   NATIONAL COUNCIL OF UKRAINE FINED 10 RADIO STATIONS FOR
VIOLATING LANGUAGE QUOTAS.

The National Council for Television and Radio Broadcasting obligated
the radio station to pay UAH 579390.4 for broadcasting a large number
of programs not in the state language.

"The National Council applied penal sanctions to 10 radio companies
that violated the norms of the law on quotas," - said in a message on
the page of the department in Facebook.

"Radio Vesti", "Glas", "104.FM", "Radio Chanson", "Kiss FM",
"Radio 106.6", "MFM", "Europe Plus Dnepr", "Irta" and "TRK Mayak"
Must pay 5% of the amount of the license fee for broadcasting programs and
songs in the Ukrainian language below the level established by law.

On the published infographics it is clear that Kiev, Kharkiv,
Dnipropetrovsk, Kirovograd, Odessa, Donetsk and Zaporizhzhya regions
became the penalty regions. The largest amount of penalties for
conducting programs not in Ukrainian was written out to Glas company
- 43.2 thousand Hryvnia, in second place - Radio Vesti
(39.6 thousand Hryvnia), on the third - radio 104 FM (17.6 thousand
Hryvnia). Most violations during the broadcast of songs recorded on the
radio
"Chanson" (125.7 thousand Hryvnia).

On March 16, the Ukrainian parliament passed a bill in the first
reading, providing that at least 75% of films and programs should be
broadcast in Ukrainian. The document allows a situation where the
presenter speaks the official language, and the guests respond to the
other. For regional TV companies, a cat is established - 50%. All
programs and films that are not their own product must be accompanied
by subtitles in Ukrainian, if speakers and actors speak other
languages. <Ukraina.ru>

USA / [ALBANIA]   Glenn, Thanks for putting Christian in touch re Tirana.
We have worked out the technical details. Do you think 2300 UT on 5850 kHz
would be good?
(Jeff White-FL-USA  WRMI, April 26, WoR, dxld April 27)

Jeff, If you can confirm a time and start date (daily except Sundays?),
I can mention it on upcoming WOR. So that would replace the AWR Cuba
broadcast?

5850 kHz should be good as far as here, but that early in the summer,
7570 kHz would reach further across the continent. I assume we are
talking about Tirana's English broadcast only.
(Glenn to Jeff, via dxld April 27)

Well, we could start with 5850 kHz at 2300 UT and then see what becomes
available. Yes, it would replace AWR Cuba at that hour. I don't know which
day we will start yet, but I will coordinate this with Christian. Maybe
May 1. Yes, English only, Monday-Saturday.
(Jeff White-FL-USA  WRMI, April 26 ibid.)

Since R. Tirana can no longer broadcast on SW direct from Albania, glad
that a relay via WRMI is being arranged, something I have been advocating
since last year.

USA   9265, Sat April 22 at 1328 UT on bandscan, I happen to hit WINB
playing Star Spangled Banner I periodically lament that no US SW station
ever plays it at s/on or s/off and this still doesn't count, and in fact
it's worse, as WINB merely uses it as background music, talking over it
with sign-on. A little more plays on, and I can tell the music is wowing
probably from a very old cartridge. Talking over our NA is tantamount to
flag desecration.

15555-USB, April 26 at 1822 UT, WJHR with usual gospel huxter, at S5
about the same as the line noise level. Many other times during the day
it's inaudible, hard to be sure if on air or not, but it's no 50 kW.

7259.998 kHz, Chinese - probably Xinjiang Urumqi China.

And in various Japanese SDR's noted another addit peak 7259.963 kHz.

I get Vanuatu on 7259.96 and Xinjiang 7259.99 kHz, and no Mongolia
at 1050 UT.

Re: 7260  Is this Radio Vanuatu?
It's already coming in very nicely into Alberta, well before 0600 UT.

For those with access to the Perseus remote system try my Perseus with the
antenna switch - ATT position "10db" switches in a 5 el yagi for
40mb pointed at Vanuatu.
Should be good for other potential Pacific and long Path African targets.

EXCELLENTE installation, Don !

The ATT 10dB switch option used now at 0945 UT on April 28,
gives a S=7-8 signal in Edmonton Alberta-CAN,
in peaks S=9+5dB signal from Radio Vanuatu in English talk
program, armchair listening 0930-1000 UT, on

7259.961 kHz (7259.9605...)
