BRAZIL   Radio Nacional da Amazonia, electricity supply generator
transformer problem on shortwave.

EBC has until December to reinstate Radio Nacional da Amazonia shortwave
service to avoid losing shortwave license.

As reported previously on this blog, Radio Nacional da Amazonia went
silent on shortwave in March due to electricity supply issues. The station
hasn't been heard since (at the time of writing, a quick YouTube search
for 6180 kHz or 11780 kHz does not return any matching reception videos
newer than March 2017).

Recently I came across two online articles from Brazil that help to
clarify the ongoing situation. I have used Google Translate to reproduce
parts of both below (and tidied up the translations manually in a few
places to improve legibility). In short, after a widespread regional
outcry, EBC (the broadcaster currently using Radio Nacional da Amazonia's
transmitter facilities) has until December to reinstate the full service
to avoid losing its shortwave broadcasting license.

See full blog here
Radio Nacional da Amazonia outage: updates from the Brazilian blogosphere.

<http://blog.londonshortwave.com/2017/09/radio-nacional-da-amazonia-
updates-from.html>

Ribeirinhos and indigenous people reject the deactivation of the
Radio Nacional da Amazonia:

[...]  Radio Nacional da Amazonia has been suffering from maintenance
problems for many years, mainly with their short-wave transmitters on the
frequencies of 6180 and 11780 kHz, on 49 and 25 meter bands, respectively.
The full 250 kW capacity of each channel was already reduced to 180 kW a
long time ago. Often, one channel would be off the air, but at least the
other one was in operation.
However, the situation has never been as serious as it is now.

On March 20 of this year 2017, more than five months ago, a lightning
struck the substation that supplies electricity to Rodeador Park, 50
kilometers from the center of Brasilia, where the antennas are located in
the North Region of the country. So far, no practical action has been
taken to repair the damage. The transmission has since been maintained
only on the internet and via satellite, for those who own a satellite
dish. But the people in the heart of the Amazon [listen] via old battery
radios.

The listeners, feeling abandoned, started complaining on live shows over
the phone. In May, a statement of repudiation of the deactivation of the
station was sent by 15 riverine and indigenous leaderships to the EBC
directorate, with copies to the Social Communication Secretariat of the
Presidency of the Republic and to the radio team. However, EBC's direction
remains mute on the subject.

Check the list of entities whose leaders signed the letter to EBC:

Association of Residents of Riozinho do Anfrisio Extractive Reserve

Association of Residents of the Rio Iriri Extractive Reserve

Council of the Ribeirinho de Belo Monte - Altamira

Indigenous Association Pyjahyry Xipaya

Tukaya Indigenous Association of Xypaya

Forest Seeds Association

Arara People of the Cachoeira Seca

Xikrin People of Bacaja

Kuruaya people

Parakana of the Apyterewa Indigenous Land

Remaining Quilombola Association of Oriximina

Association for the Development of Family Agriculture of the Upper Xingu

Joint Alternative Cooperative of Small Producers of the Alto Xingu

Forestry and Agricultural Management and Certification Institute

Kabu Institute (Kayapo Mekrangnoti People)

Protected Forest Association (Kayapo People Kayapo Indigenous Land)

EBC may lose Radio Nacional da Amazonia's license after going off the air

Radio Nacional da Amazonia has been completely off the air and Radio
Nacional de Brasilia (AM) does not have sufficient power to reach states
beyond the Federal District during the night.

The accident completely altered the routine of thousands of people from
the Amazon, who have since contacted EBC, pleading for the return of the
only station that can be tuned into where they live.

[...]  This does not happen by chance.
Since its creation, Radio Nacional da Amazonia has played a fundamental
role in guaranteeing citizenship to the inhabitants of the northern region
of the country, through access to information. But this feeling of
belonging is lost every time an Amazonian tries to tune into the station
and is faced with the inhuman silence coming from their radio device.

Isolated communities in rural, riverside, indigenous and border areas,
located in places where access to the Internet and other communication
channels is difficult, are the ones that benefit most from the public
information services carried by the station, which broadcasts to such
communities, in addition to information, tips on how to seek solutions to
basic health problems, domestic violence and how to take documents.

It is also through the radio that the listeners communicate with
relatives, pass and return messages and reunite with missing relatives and
friends. It is no wonder that the station has earned the folklore nickname
"Amazon's payphone."

Historical programs like "Eu de Ca, Voce de La"; "Frankly speaking";
"Meeting point"; "Live nature"; "Viva Maria"; "Our land"; "Brazilian
Amazonia"; "National Evening"; "Mosaic"; "Em Conta" and "Amazon Reporter"
simply stopped reaching their audience, cutting off a decades-long
relationship with the forest peoples.

[...]  Not only does [the station] violate the right to information of
thousands of people living in the Brazilian states that make up the Legal
Amazon (Amazonas, Acre, Amapa, Maranhao, Mato Grosso, Rondonia, Para,
Roraima and Tocantins), [they run] the risk of losing the radio license.

This is because the sole paragraph of Article 55 of Decree 52795/1963
states that in case the interruption of the broadcasting service is more
than 30 (thirty) consecutive days, "except for reasons of unforeseeable
circumstances duly proven and recognized by CONTEL, permission shall be
revoked, without the licensee being entitled to any indemnity."

[...]  Now EBC has until December to reinstate the provision of the
Shortwave service of Radio Nacional da Amazonia, after authorization of
the extension of the legal term granted by the Ministry of Science,
Technology, Innovation and Communications (MCTIC). MCTIC also gave a
period of 120 days for the reestablishment of the Medium Wave service for
the return of the normal operation of Radio Nacional AM of Brasilia.

CUBA   STEADY ROCKIN' IN FIDEL'S BACKYARD.
Written by Army Spc. Emily R. Martin for JTF GTMO Public Affairs.
[May 26, 2017]

The Radio GTMO building sits on a secluded peninsula surrounded by large
radio dishes on U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. American Forces
Network Guantanamo Bay has called the same building home since 1964.

If you turn to a fellow seasoned Trooper and ask them about their
experiences with the American Forces Network, chances are they will
mention the corny Public Service Announcements or the over-the-top news
reporters. Anywhere there are American boots on the ground, AFN will be
there, always reminding Troopers and families, "Don't Shake the Baby!"

U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba has a radio branch of the Armed
Forces Network that is unique to here alone, and many know it as its more
popular title - Radio GTMO. "The thing that makes GTMO GTMO, especially to
the people here, is Radio GTMO. It is the sound of the island," said Petty
Officer 1st Class Monique Meeks, a mass communications specialist and the
manager at Radio GTMO. "We used to be the only thing here."

The radio station itself sits on a secluded peninsula surrounded by large
radio dishes and calm beaches. AFN Guantanamo Bay was founded in 1947 on a
different part of the island and went under the name WGBY. Since 1964,
Radio GTMO has called that building home. Within its doors sit two
important components; the U.S. Navy's Mass Communication Specialists who
are responsible for running the station and entertaining Troopers and the
largest record collection of all AFN radio stations in the world.

"We can either make or break Troopers' spirit and morale," said Meeks. "If
my Sailors are doing their job well, they're getting the word out about
events on the island and providing an entertainment value for the base."

Providing a morale boost and bringing a little piece of home to Troopers
here has been the goal of AFN, and especially Radio GTMO, since the
beginning. The station owns three tune-in radio signals in the area. There
is 102.1, NSGB's and Joint Task Force Guantanamo's specific talk radio;
103.1, the country music station; and AM 1340, a provided talk radio.
Being able to broadcast three separate signals is something only Radio
GTMO can do.

"We offer that extra moral boost, even if it's making fun of our cheesy
commercials we come up with," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Zachary
Anderson, a mass communication specialist. "One of our main missions is
command information. Radio is one of the best mediums in the fact that it
is immediate."

Radio GTMO is one of the oldest military radio stations and sits on the
oldest military base not on U.S. soil, so it is no surprise it has its
hidden treasures. The greatest treasure though is the 20,000 piece vinyl
record collection it protects within its walls.

"We have the only active record collection in the entire Department of
Defense," said Anderson. "The coolest thing is that we can still play
them. If I wanted I could go in the booth and throw a record on the
turntable and play it."

Radio GTMO almost faced the same fate as many AFN stations around the
world when digital music reared its head, destroying the outdated record
collection. Thanks to some determined MCs back in the day, the decision to
destroy them was halted and the records became a physical and permanent
part of GTMO history.

"It's history, musical history. One of the best things is when I bring a
tour group in. There are some people that just light up and get so excited
when they see our record collection, it is such a tangible medium. You can
pick a record up and just hold it, it's so tactile and it's great to see
people react to them so positively," said Anderson. The radio station is
not there to only provide audible entertainment, its doors are open to
whomever visits NSGB and wants to experience the unique history or maybe
just grab a Fidel Castro bobble head.

"You know we have the tag line 'Rocking in Fidel's Backyard,' it is
something iconic to Radio GTMO, people come here to be part of that
experience," said Anderson. "We are not just a radio station, we are a
part of the community and Guantanamo Bay history".

GEORGIA/RUSSIA   [AUSTRIA non]
 ORF: Radiostation Nummer 5 - ein georgisches Dorf ohne Namen.

Nach einem Hinweis von OM Paul Gager hier
<http://oe1.orf.at/player/20171006/492159>

auf der Abspielskala ab "18.38" noch einige Tage zum Nachhoeren:

"Radiostation Nummer 5 - ein georgisches Dorf ohne Namen"

Waehrend des Kalten Krieges wurde zwischen dem Westen und der Sowjetunion
ein heisser Informationskampf ausgefochten. Die Sowjetunion stoerten die
Radio-Sendungen der feindlichen westlichen Staaten, die auf Russisch bzw.
in den Sprachen der vielen Voelker der Sowjetunion uebertragen wurden:

"BBC", "The Voice of America", "Radio Liberty", "Radio Free Europe",
"Deutsche Welle", "Die Stimme Vatikans" und einige andere.

Fuer diese Stoer-Arbeit hat der Kreml kolossale Geldsummen ausgegeben. Auf
dem Gebiet der UdSSR wurden ganze Siedlungen gebaut, die nur dem Zwecke
dienten, die "westliche Propaganda" die Ohren der Sowjetbuerger nicht
erreichen zu lassen. Eine dieser geheimen Siedlungen, die so genannte
Radiostation Nummer 5, hat Tatjana Montik in Georgien ausfindig gemacht.

Dazu aehnlich passend von <RT Deutsch (Russia Today)>

<https://deutsch.rt.com/russland/55731-the-buzzer-russlands-
geheimnisvollste-radiostation/>

"Schon seit mehr als 40 Jahren existiert in Russland eine geheimnisvolle
Radiostation, die ein weisses Rauschen uebertraegt. Doch manchmal werden
zusaetzlich raetselhafte Signale uebertragen - Zahlen, Namen und Worte,
deren Zweck niemand versteht. Was koennte es damit auf sich haben? ..."

Ishida also reports "9526" first today from 1155 UT during Chinese, but
"9525" low modulation carrier had been on earlier at *0936-0949* UT.
So they gave up on that one, fired up the other one. Later I see that
Wolfgang Bueschel agrees on this precise frequency. After 1400 UT, no QRM
from 9525.0 kHz; this season we no longer have to cope with CRI, but HFCC
shows KBS at 14-16, wooden?

[...]  Ha ha! Still announcing imaginary frequencies, 15150, 9525,
and 11785 kHz !
There is also a pulsing/clicking noise; QRM or self imposed? (gh)

Thanks Mauno. I found some background information here:

GOVERNMENT ESTABLISHES MAUNGDAW RADIO STATION
Thursday, February 02, 2017

The government has begun operating a radio station that is available
exclusively in Maungdaw, northern Rakhine State, officials have told
Frontier.

Mayu FM, which first hit the airwaves on February 1, is available on
FM frequency 90.1 MHz in Maungdaw for eight hours a day, from 6 to 10 am
and from 4 to 8 pm. It broadcasts mainly news programs in three
languages: Myanmar, Rakhine and Rohingya, the latter which is a
dialect closely related to Chittagonian.

Access has been restricted to Maungdaw since early October, when the
government enforced a heavy security crackdown after three police
outposts were attacked. Reports have emerged of security forces using
disproportionate force in their operations, but the government and
military have dismissed them as false.

"The Union government informed us to transmit the program in Bengali
[Rohingya] language on FM this month," said San Nwe, spokesperson for
the Rakhine State Hluttaw.

Mayu FM is being transmitted from the head office of state-run Myanmar
Radio and Television in Nay Pyi Taw by staff who speak the three
languages, said San Nwe.

"[Myanmar language] newspapers cannot reach rural areas [in Maungdaw].
Even if they can, residents cannot read well. They can only speak
Bengali [Rohingya], so they only believe what their relatives [in
Bangladesh] say. They need to know what the Myanmar government is
doing there," San Nwe said.

But few residents in Maungdaw say they have heard of the station.
Ko Aung Myaing, a Muslim living in Taungpyo Letwel, a sub-township of
Maungdaw, said he had not heard of the station, asking if it was
available on YouTube.

Ko Nyi Tun, an ethnic Rakhine living in downtown Maungdaw, said,
"I have been watching Rakhine [language] programs.
I have never heard of Mayu."

NIGERIA   6089.905 kHz Kaduna?

Checking for 6090 kHz Amhara-ETH at 2000 UT Oct 9, I found a het there.
Zooming in, there's another signal on 6089.905 kHz. Noticed on other web
receivers in Europe, including the Canary Islands. I can't get any
definite audio on any receiver though. Just Amhara.

Could this be Kaduna back on??? Only Amhara was here yesterday.

NIGERIA   Thanks to a tip of Dave Valko in PA-US on Oct 9 at 20 UT

noted [probably] FRCN Kaduna Nigeria here in remote units
at Germany and Belgium on
6089.909 kHz S=5 at 2049 UT -94dBm tiny level,
but totally covered by Amhara ETH on 6090.001 kHz,

Kaduna transmission switch-off at 2130 UT on Oct 9 !

From 2105 UT I checked remotes in Liverpool, Greece, Qatar,
and various in Japan, and noted ahead
CNR2 program from Geermu site 6090.002 kHz, in // Beijing 6065 kHz.

Heard between 0525 and 0550 UT here in southern Germany:
a recording of 0548 UT on Oct 10 made. Distorted audio though.

Should be African FRCN Kaduna radio program.
Frequency wandered from
6089.915 kHz at 0525 UT S=6 or -86dBm on diverse Perseus units
here in Europe, to
6089.913 kHz at 0550 UT.
Grayline fade-out time signal around 06.10 UT on Oct 10,
S=5 or -98dBm decreased signal strength.  73 wolfie df5sx.

UNIDENTIFIED   15344.076, on Oct 2 at 1433 UT, JBA carrier. Such an off-
frequency immediately brings to mind RAE Argentina, and also Morocco, both
of which have been gone from SW for months and years respectively. Yet
NDXC/Aoki still lists a full schedule for RAE/Radio Nacional! No other
stations are on 15345 kHz at anyhour per that, HFCC and EiBi.

RAE was going to reactivate as soon as they could get replacement parts,
but if so, it's no better than it used to be. Seems to fade, but this
could also be from a local device, so others please check for anything
around 15344 kHz.

USA   All frequencies of WRMI OFF the air at 0632-0635 UT check Oct 3:

5850, 7570, 7730, 7780, 9395, 9455, 9955, 11580 kHz
all inaudible (tho 9 & 11 MHz might have faded out); Other US stations on
5, 6 and 7 MHz are still audible. Reawake at 1326 UT, they are all still
off except for very poor signals on 9395, 9455 kHz, not WRMI?

11825, on Oct 3 at 1329 UT, good dead air presumably WRMI about to come
back?
No, from 1330 UT it's KSDA GUAM signing on in Thai!

9455, on Oct 3 at 1342 UT, open carrier, so WRMI starting to come back,
then some music; others still off except JBA carrier on 9395 kHz.

9455 // weaker 9395 kHz, on Oct 3 at 1401 UT, now in 'The Power Hour' with
paranoid commentary about the Deep State, paedophilia, Trump in danger?
Still, no other frequencies.

Next check at 1427 UT on Oct 3, now // 7780 kHz is very poor as usual;
9955 kHz back with BS; 11580 kHz back with Argentina in Spanish, 11825 kHz
BS; 21525 kHz JBA with Radio Africa.

Then I check WRMI FB to find what Jeff is saying:

"WRMI Radio Miami International, at 1130 UTC on Tuesday October 3 -
WRMI is experiencing an unusual power outage, perhaps caused by the recent
Hurricane Irma damage in the area. All of our transmitters are off the air
except for 9395 kHz on low power. Florida Power & Light is investigating
and repairing the problem at this time and we hope to be back on the air
soon. Our live stream of 9955 kHz is online on our website, wrmi.net and
via services such as TuneIn.

1400 UTC Tuesday October 3 - OK, our power has just returned and we will
be bringing all of our transmitters back on the air within a few minutes.
Some overhead power lines in the area of our transmitter site, possibly
damaged by Hurricane Irma, fell to the ground. Florida Power & Light fixed
the lines just a few minutes ago"

He has also added dozens of photos from HFCC B-17 in Cape Town.

I pause in WOR 1898 produxion to check 9955 kHz, October 3 at 2054 UT to
discover what extra program is on at 2030 UT Tuesday: another gospel
huxter in English, unknown which.

USA   17775, on Sept 28 at 1442 UT, KVOH is S=9+30dB but heavy distortion,
sounds horrible; carrier also wobbling and splattering out to 17763-17877
kHz. When will they *ever* get their replacement transmitter going?

17775, on Sept 29 at 1402 UT, KVOH with distorted music and wobbling
carrier, but not quite as bad as yesterday; S8-S9 but faded way down
to S5 by 1419 UT.

9930, on Sat Sept 30 at 1807 UT, WTWW-2 is still AWOL from afternoon
frequency; and UT Sunday Oct 1 at 0105 UT, night frequency also AWOL,
so strike out for 'Theater Organ in the Ozarx'.

7520, on Oct 1 at 0057 UT, WWCR is S=9+50dB but only traces of scratch
modulation yet nevertheless splashing out plus/minus 20 kHz; including
sub/carrier/spurs such as 7125.2 kHz. Wiggle that patchcord!

21610, on Oct 1 at 1814 UT, VP carrier here, presumably WHRI, which was

VANUATU   7259.9595 ... but in 41mb Radio Vanuatu, Port Vila, on air
Live Player is at least 30 to 40 seconds behind SW signal which
heard in remote SDR at Australia.

<https://www.vbtc.vu/radio-vanuatu>

41 mb heard still at 12.45 UT on Oct 6,
despite of wrong Aoki database 0700-1015 UT 3945 kHz,
WRTH 2017 has 0400-2200 UT nighttime schedule though ...

in SDR in Brisbane Queensland
7259.9595 kHz S=9+5dB at Australia.

When the music end pause, and during female presenter voice,
a deep BUZZ tone of 50, 100 and 150 Hertz heard,
- via the Port Vila SW tx.

Another frequency stn of lower signal level is on 7259.990 kHz
is usually  PBS Xinjiang Urumqui China.

7259.9595  entgegen der Aoki Database // gehoert um 1245 UT
am 6. Oct im remote SDR in Brisbane Queensland auf
7259.9595 kHz, S=9+5dB signal dort in Australien.

Wenn das Musikstueck zuende ist, sowie waehrend der weiblichen
Stimmenansage hoert man einen 50, 100 und 150 Hertz tiefen Brumm,

Auf der Frequenz ist noch eine weitere Station 7259.990 kHz
das ist PBS Xinjiang Urumqui China.

Ein anderer Sender aus der Suedsee dessen Live-Streaming ich herein
bekomme ist Radio Vanuatu. So um 1845 UTC beim Wechsel vom Nachtprogramm
zur Morgenstartsendung kommt hier zumeist eine komplette ID mit
Frequenzansagen.
Es werden beide Kurzwellen angesagt 3945 und 7260 kHz.

Auf meinem PC lief gestern ueber meinen 1&1-Player der Stream von Radio
Cook Island in Studioqualitaet mit Suedseeklaenge, ab und zu eine ID und
QRG-Ansage 630 kHz. Im vorigen Jahrhundert sendete es auch auf
Kurzwelle u.a. auf 9695 kHz, ab 1981 sogar auf 11760 kHz, spaeter dann
nur im Tropenband bis dann in einem Brand des Rundfunkgebaeudes im Mai
1993 auch der Kurzwellensender zerstoert wurde.

Leider ist es mir zur gegeben Zeit nie gelungen diesen Sender auf
Kurzwelle zu empfangen. Wie ich in letzten Bulletins von ADXN und NZ-DXT
sah, war von einem Empfang selbst in der Region von der MW 630 kHz nichts
erwaehnt.
