RAE Deutsch Sondersendung!
Another addendum to Radio CAE (you might think that I hold a grudge):

There will be a mini edition of QSL cards, around 50 pieces.
First come, first serve.
But only with neat details and not "Male Talk, Female Talk, Music ".

QSL
RRs can be sent to   <info -at- shortwaveservice.com>

Noch ein Nachtrag zu Radio CAE:

Es wird eine Mini-Auflage QSL Karten geben, so ca. 50 Stueck. First come,
first serve. Aber nur mit ordentlichen Details und nicht "Male Talk,
Female Talk, Music". RRs koennen an
<info -at- shortwaveservice.com>
geschickt werden.

AUSTRIA   95.0 MHz - UKW-AUT, ORS-Sendeanlage Gratkorn.

<https://www.ors.at/de/tech-blog/blogartikel/neue-ors-sendeanlage-
gratkorn-fuer-radio-gruen-weiss-500/>

Auszug: Zusaetzliche ORS-Sendeanlage fuer Raum Graz, Steiermark.

Um die Versorgung von Radio Gruen Weiss im Raum Graz zu erweitern, wurde
im Herbst eine neue Sendeanlage der ORS am Standort Gratkorn-Gsollerkogel
fuer die UKW-Radioverbreitung realisiert. Da an diesem Senderstandort
bisher keine UKW-Programme uebertragen wurden, musste dazu ein neues
UKW-Antennensystem errichtet werden.

Am 13. Oktober erfolgte die Inbetriebnahme des neuen Senders durch die
ORS-Projektleiter Reinhold Leutgeb und Andreas Froeschl gemeinsam mit
Peter Petzner, dem Geschaeftsfuehrer von Radio Gruen Weiss.

Groesste Erweiterung des Sendegebietes fuer Radio Gruen Weiss

Radio Gruen Weiss ? dessen Programm unter anderem aus Schlager, Oldies
und volkstuemlicher Musik besteht ? wurde 1998 in Leoben gegruendet.
Bereits in den ersten Jahren wurde der steirische Sender ein wichtiger
Faktor fuer die Region und baute sein Sendegebiet mit den Jahren
kontinuierlich aus.

Mit der Errichtung des neuen ORS-Senders in Gratkorn hat sich die
technische Reichweite des Radiosenders auf rund 650.000 Personen erhoeht.
Das bedeutet, dass mittlerweile schon rund 50 Prozent der steirischen
Bevoelkerung Radio Gruen Weiss ueber UKW empfangen koennen. Die Frequenz
am Standort Gratkorn und Umgebung ist 95,00 MHz.

GERMANY    Mighty KBC - December 27 broadcast on 6095 kHz.

From a recent F_Book post by The Mighty KBC, they are planning a special
broadcast on 27 December on 6095 kHz via Nauen at 125 kW from 0900-1600
UTC. Full schedule not yet known, however Ron O'Quinn has posted on his
Facebook page that he will have a programme, time unconfirmed but probably
in the afternoon at 2pm European time (so that would be 1300 UTC).

GERMANY    Europe 1 Sendemasten in Berus werden bald gesprengt.
Bald ist es soweit, dass das Saarland ein Wahrzeichen - wenn ich das so
nennen darf - verliert: der Langwellensender Europe 1 wird gesprengt ??

Die Saarbruecker Zeitung hat heute einen halbseitigen Bericht dazu
gedruckt. Wer sich interessiert, findet unter folgendem Link den Text
(wenn ich nix falsch gemacht habe):

Re:  Europe 1 - 2 Sendemasten in Berus gesprengt.

Fuer's Geschichtsbuch und evtl. Interessenten:
Gestern 20. Oktober 2020 wurden 2 der 4 Sendemasten von Europe 1 in Berus
gesprengt. Der Rest soll spaeter ebenfalls umgelegt werden. Selber war ich
nicht vor Ort, haette mich zu sehr geaergert, diesen Sender niemals innen
besichtigt zu haben.

Einen ausfuehrlichen Bericht zur Sprengung brachte die Saarbruecker
Zeitung. Der Artikel sollte unter folgendem Link erscheinen (solange keine
Paywall vorgeschaltet wird):

SOUTH ASIA/CENTRAL ASIA/SOUTH EAST ASIA/ME
Listening neighbouring countries from North/East India:
Quick review of the current situation:

India is a vast country, spanning thousands of kilometres in all
directions. Radio-wave propagation, and therefore reception, naturally
varies widely in different regions. Radio broadcasts from other stations
often cause frequency overlap and severe interference, resulting
frustration for the listeners. Radio stations, even from the neighbouring
countries, may at times be difficult to hear. More difficult, often
impossible, is to get a sort of verification (QSL) from many of these
broadcasters.

This era witnesses decaying number of radio stations; many of the existing
broadcasters are increasingly reluctant to use traditional shortwave (SW)
and mediumwave (MW) (AM) frequencies; and trying other modes to reach
their audience. Stations of our nearby countries are no exception.
The golden days of radiolistening / dxing will never return.

Here I share some information of a few radio stations (from our
neighbouring countries) worth trying for the serious listeners. Discussion
is limited to SW and MW (AM) only; other modes are beyond scope of this
article. Stations from China (PRC), one of the two big broadcasting
nations in this region, are also not discussed for obvious reasons.

Afghanistan
SW (irregular) on 6100 kHz, possibly now off-air. State run MW facilities
are at Kabul (1107 kHz), Kandahar (1305 kHz) and (possibly) {sic, real
US AGM RL Mashaal Pashto &  VoA Deewa Pashto, wb.} Khost (621 kHz).
No qsl activity in recent years. Email: <info -at- rta.org.af>

VOA (Radio Ashna/Azadi/Deewa/Mashaal) operates in MW from Kabul (1296 kHz)
& Khost (621 kHz). Reception is fairly good and they occasionally issue
e-qsl. Email: <qsl -at- usagm.gov>

A few low-power regional stations are also operating as reported in the
media.

Bangladesh
Domestic service SW frequency 4750 kHz is well audible beyond target area;
also uses 7250, 9455, 13580, 15105 & 15505 kHz frequencies for external
service of "Bangladesh Betar"; occasionally issues qsl-card & letter.
Email: <rrc -at- dhaka.net>  <serrc -at- betar.gov.bd>

Powerful MW stations are at Chattagram (873 kHz), Dhaka (630, 693 & 819
kHz), Khulna (558 kHz) & Rajshahi (846 kHz). Few less powerful MW stations
(963, 999, 1053, 1170, 1287, 1314, 1413 & 1431 kHz) are also audible,
particularly in Ea- & NoEa-India. Two more low-power MW frequencies
(1080 & 1161 kHz) are now temporarily suspended.

Bhutan
There is no MW broadcast from this country. SW transmission of state owned
"Bhutan Broadcasting Service" is regularly heard on 6035 kHz in local
morning and afternoon hours. Reception is good in Ea-, No-, & NoEa-India;
also audible in other areas. Verifies with qsl-letter.
Email: <request -at- bbs.com.bt>

Maldives
"Dhivehi Radio" introduced MW service (on 1449 kHz) from Thilafushi near
capital Male in recent years after a long gap. Almost regularly audible in
South-India and nearby countries; reception is also sporadically reported
from Ea- & NoEa-India. No qsl activity reported in recent time.
Email: <info -at- psm.mv>

Myanmar (Burma)
"Myanma Radio" is well audible in both SW (5985 & 9730 kHz) and MW (576 &
594 kHz); issues e-qsl regularly. Email (for english programme):
<nptradio.eng -at- gmail.co>

NHK(Japan) & VOA broadcast through 5985 & 9730 kHz SW outlets of
Myanma-Radio, mainly for local audience.

"Thazin Radio" run by Myanmar defence ministry uses MW 639 kHz and
SW 6030, 6165, 7345, 9460 & 9590 kHz facilities but does not respond to
listeners.
{what's about regular 5915v kHz service from new capital Nay Pyi Daw, wb.}

Nepal
"Radio Nepal" transmits in MW from multiple locations on 576 kHz Surkhet,
648 kHz Dhankuta, 684 kHz Pokhara, 792 kHz Bagmati, 810 kHz Dipayal
& 1143 kHz Bardibas. All are powerful and easily audible in No-, Ea- &
NoEa-India, may be in other areas too.
Unconfirmed SW activity on 5005 kHz was reported by a few listeners.
No qsl activity in recent years. Email: <info -at- radionepal.gov.np>

Pakistan
"Radio Pakistan" uses multiple MW frequencies, targeted mainly for its
domestic service. Most are easily audible at late evening when powerful
AIR stations sign-off.

Notable MW frequencies are 540 kHz (reportedly 300 kW but doubtful),
585 kHz (500 kW), 630, 711, 1008, 1035, 1053, 1134, 1152, 1170, 1260 kHz
(400 kW) & 1332 kHz. No qsl activity reported in recent years.

"FEBA Radio Pakistan" uses 6070 kHz in local morning hours only.

Interestingly, they broadcast from transmitter located in Al-Dhabbiya
(UAE) and not from Pakistan.
Email: <feba74 -at- gmail.com>

Sri Lanka
"SLBC", state run radio of Sri Lanka, uses SW frequencies 9695, 11750 &
11905 kHz; some are regular and audible fairly well. Difficult to get qsl.
Email: <victorg.broadcaster -at- gmail.com>
<chmnslbc -at- slbc.lk>

TWR Asia uses Puttalem 882 kHz MW frequency {half power 200 kW?, wb.},
with regular and powerful reception in So-India. Issues qsl regularly.
Email: <asiafeedback -at- twr.org>
BBC and FEBA use 9580 kHz SW and 1125 kHz MW Trincomalee respectively.

AWR uses 1548 kHz MW Trincomalee and several SW frequencies (9470, 9740,
9810, 11755, 11790, 11805, 11870, 11925, 15150, 15305, 15410, 15430,15530,

TAIWAN/FRANCE   Rebroadcasts of RFI programms halt in Taiwan.

<https://en.rti.org.tw/news/view/id/2004195>

Rebroadcasts of RFI programms halt over alleged "pro China" stance.

Taiwan's National Education Radio has decided to stop domestic
rebroadcasts of Radio France Internationale&rsquo;s programs. That's
after receiving listener complaints that the station's news programs
repeated Chinese talking points that praised Beijing, belittled Taiwan,
and criticized the US.

National Education Radio had rebroadcast Radio France Internationale's
French and Chinese programs for Taiwanese audiences during two daily time
slots under an agreement arranged by RTI. During a meeting of the
Legislature's culture and education committee Wednesday, KMT lawmakers
said that the education ministry should investigate whether the listener
complaints were justified or not.

They also expressed concern about what pulling the plug of the
rebroadcasts might mean for freedom of speech and the press in Taiwan.

kritisierten.

Taiwans National Education Radio hatte die franzoesischen und chinesischen
Programme von Radio France Internationale, kurz RFI, fuer das taiwanische
Publikum bisher zweimal taeglich ausgestrahlt. Diese Vereinbarung mit RFI
war in Zusammenarbeit mit Radio Taiwan International zustande gekommen.

TAJIKISTAN   9896  OPPOSITION. Voice of Tibet via Dushanbe, 1331, Oct 13.
poor-fair signal with YL in lang at 1331 on this VOT-listed fqy at this
time. Exotic-sounding musical breakers between items. 1335 cut carrier on
this fqy to move elsewhere, as is their pattern to escape Chinese jammers.
Only stays on one fqy five or ten mins at most.

LATER: Found her! Moved to 9876 at 1335, and a much better signal here,
same YL reading items and nice Tibetan shortie mx bursts. 1340 carrier cut
again, off to hunt down her new fqy . . .Got her - at 1340 VOT moved to
9814, same YL, mx and then a taped OM with speech. This is kinda fun, like
a treasure hunt. VOT is on the air 1300-1400 daily,and moves after five to
ten minutes on any one fqy. Good thing is that at any given time, there is
a limited number of fqys they will be using. For now here they are: 9899,
9896, 9894, 9886, 9884, 9876, 9874, 9864, 9814, 7496, 7494, 7486, 7476.

Not too hard to check them until you find their next temp fqy. They are
always on exact split fqy, too, like 9814.00. And now, 1355, I've lost em
again ....

- 9864, Voice of Tibet, via Dushanbe, 1302, Oct 15. starting out here
today, found at 1302 with poor signal, OM and YL in pres Tibetan,
narrating items with short mx burst separators, mushy audio. Jumped to new
fqy at 1305, easily located as 9876. Orchl break 1307, then different OM
takes over. Jumped to nf at 1310 which was found to be 9886. They are
staying put on 9886, still there at 1324. Perhaps their theory is the
first couple five minute switches will serve to shake the pursuing
jammers?

But fairly amazing how the Dushanbe relay station requires their engineers
to play this game for VOT, a series of 5-minute xmsns on off-fqys, with
the pattern frequently shifting. Must be a bit irritating for the
technical staff. But maybe it's worth it to them perhaps they all just
enjoy sticking it to China?

- 9864 Voice of Tibet, Dushanbe, launching at 1300 on this fqy for today's
hide-and-go-seek match. Always fun finding 'em. Poor signal.

TURKMENISTAN   Interesting information on LW 279 kHz Watan Radio
(Turkmenistan)

279 kHz
The transmitter in Turkmenistan is working, but modulation (sound),
judging by the posts on the forums, is very rare (or very quiet).
Personally, in two years I heard modulation only three times, and then
more than a year ago.

Judging by the sound quality, somewhere in the sound channel there is a
device like a noise suppressor, whose settings have drifted away over
time, and it began to completely crush not only the noise, but also the
useful signal. Why the workers of the radio station for several years have
not been able to find a fault and have wasted heating the air is a
mystery.

The transmitter most often turns on at about 2 am UTC (5 am Kyiv time),
then turns off during the day. The work schedule is irregular, but a 4-day
period can be traced. It seems that the duty shifts work in a "day after
three" mode, and each has its own work schedule, which is also unstable.
One of the shifts often leaves the transmitter on overnight. Today is just
such a night, the next - from 16 to 17 October.

<https://forum.ukrtvr.org/index.php?topic=678.msg140754#msg140754>

I don't know how true this is, but it may well be. I wonder why they won't
eliminate it? If there really is a squelch, then adjust, replace or remove
it altogether.

TURKMENISTAN   Last night I was checking Turkmenistan 279 and 5015, and
found that despite that both are located at Ashgabat, 279 has a very long
satellite delay compared to 5015, so apparently there are two different
sites.

279   The "Iney" LW site at Pervomayskiy (First of May) village was opened
in 1966 {alternate 198 kHz longwave} and is located 10 kms south of
Ashgabat. It has a 257 m antenna mast, 150 kW. The first SW txer was
opened in 1946, and the first high power (50 kW) SW txer in 1961
(encyclopedia info via Bernd Trutenau).

5015   The SW site is likely to be located in the outskirts of Ashgabat,
just like other older SW sites in the former USSR. 6 x SW curtain antns.

The LW 257 m mast is the standard for ARRT-1 antennas used on low freqs.

The ARRT antenna, consisting of a supporting mast and a cage of vertical
radiator wires, is supposed to suppress the skywave. ARRT means antenna
with controlled current feed and the type was widely used for key LW-MW
txs in the former USSR.

USA   WMLK Update
WMLK has posted an update on their F_Book page on 19 October, as follows:

"Ampegon report from the contracted builder!
Thank you very much for your email. It is good to hear that you are
surviving the pandemic - although this does not sound very optimistic.

In Europe the second wave is fully striking us. In Switzerland we don't
feel it so badly. But there are a lot of restrictions which make us
feeling that it is not over yet by far.

Regarding your transmitter I can give you the following information on
the completion situation:

1. PSM cabinet: fully assembled, tested, packed, ready for shipping

2. Auxiliary transformer, HV cables: packed and ready for shipping

3. Balun: 90% assembled

4. RF-transmitter: 40% assembled

5. PSM transformer: ordered, delivery confirmation according to schedule

6. Testload: 35%
   (delivery of a lot of material delayed because of Covid-19)

7. Medium voltage switchgear: offers from suppliers are in.
   Procurement will soon follow. In schedule.

We target to complete the transmitter to be completed
by end of October 2020 to be ready for wiring test & functional tests.

We will take some pictures next week and send them to you.

Sorry I didn't post this sooner some difficulties occurred!
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and your support!
Yahweh Bless you, each and everyone! Shalom!"

WRMI Transmitter 6 (9395 kHz) off-air.
"1915 UTC Tuesday October 20 - WRMI's Transmitter 6 (9395 kHz) is
temporarily off the air due to a blown capacitor and some other minor
damage. Our engineers are working to get it back on the air, but we may
need some parts, so it could be tomorrow before it gets back on the air.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience."

USA   Re:  WRMI Transmitter 6 (9395 kHz) off-air.

Last I heard from the site was that part of the problem is fixed, but
there are still issues. Maybe tomorrow. There is only ONE engineer on
site for 14 transmitters and 23 antenna systems, and he is only part-time
and semi-retired. The engineering situation is getting grim in this
business, as we are all aging out. If I was in Florida I could help, but
we are at out Mountain Home until after Christmas.
