Re:  Gary Pence (Km5x) log's for September 14th,
to the BC tests of the TDA transmitter engineers at the new Ampegon unit
installations in Bechar and Quargla:

THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING in the 41 meterband on 7200 kHz.

re 7200 kHz channel use for BCstation services in AM/DSB format these days
is illegal, only USB-mode transmissions are allowed on 7200 kHz resp.
7300 kHz channels on upper side band flank.

acc UN / ITU bandplan
first AM BC / DSB mode channel in EUR/AS/AUS region 1 and 3, is 7205 kHz,

in ITU region 2 like AM_ericas is 7305 kHz channel and up:

ITU Radio Regulations of ITU 4.5 and Circular Letter of ITU Switzerland
CR/282  3.2

RR 4.5
The frequency assigned to a station of a given service shall be separated
from the limits of the band allocated to this service in such a way that,
taking account of the frequency band assigned to a station, no harmful
interference is caused to services to which frequency bands immediately
adjoining are allocated.

Yes, Radio208 from Hvidovre, Copenhagen, is still running a little under
100 Watt on 5970 kHz. And on the air 24/7.

Reception of Radio208 on KiwiSDR in NH, USA, however is not 'remarkable'.
This KiwiSDR is one of the few in the US which has low noise and has a
good aerial. I have checked reception here on numerous occasions, and
would say that reception is quite regular. Now at 0220 UT reception is
fine.

And now a little after 04 UT both Sunlite from the Netherlands on 5955 kHz
and Radio208 from Hvidovre, Denmark, on 5970 kHz are on completely clear
channels in NH, USA, with fairly good reception:

Good reception now in NH, USA,

ITALY   Video - Rai Way medium wave broadcasting center in Milan Siziano
tribute. Andrea Zamproni wrote on the WRTH  F_B group on 9 September 2022.

I would like to share my simple tribute to the Rai Way medium wave broad-
casting center in Milan Siziano, which will be shut down on 11 September
2022 and subsequently demolished.

Currently the transmitter (Harris DX600) and the antenna (148 meters) are
used for "Rai Radio 1" at 900 kHz with a power of 50 kW.

A second antenna (145 meters) is used for the private broadcaster
"Radio Zainet" (693 kHz, 2 kW).  73  Iw2nnv

Hi  -  Following the closure of the RAI transmitter on 1575 kHz from my
home (central France) Radio Seerah from Leicester is received with signals
from weak to good, I am always surprised at the quality of the signal with
such a small power, interesting frequency also for the relay of the VOA in
Thailand (1000 kW).  SDR Perseus + Loop ALA 1530

Re:  Italy - planned RAI medium wave switch off concerns expressed.

Actually Radio Trst A on SID 3454 has been there before. Perhaps they now
emphasize it to calm down the complaints*) about turning off the 10 kW MW
outlet which in this case already happened, at some point between 20:10
and 23:20 CET.

The SID 3452 feed has been there before as well. But until yesterday it
appeared as "Rai Radio 1 OM", so apparently carried the same program
output than at least 657, 900, 1107 kHz. Perhaps today they switched it to
the very soon ex-936 kHz program output while the other one will disappear
shortly.

PHILIPPINES    PBS Philippines on Shortwave.
During its more than three quarters of a century of on air shortwave
service, PBS, the Philippine Broadcasting Service has always been quite
tenuous, even at its very best. Radio Philippinas, the shortwave service
of the Voice of the Philippines, has at times been dependent upon bor-
rowed facilities and donated equipment, sometimes quite old, and some-
times no longer reliable.

On September 4, 1947, the United States government signed a document on
behalf of the Voice of America for a new and somewhat temporary relay
station at Malolos, some thirty miles north of the national capital
Manila. VOA took out a lease for five buildings at the Bulacan Trade
School, mainly imported Quonset Huts, and a total of five transmitters
were installed; two at 50 kW mediumwave, and three shortwave for inter-
national coverage. At one stage VOA operated a Manila address at
964 Taft Avenue.

The three shortwave transmitters at Malolos were two RCA units, Model
number M1733OA, at 50 kW each with dual channel operation. The RCA
serial numbers were No 524 & 527, and there was another RCA 7 a half kW
Model ETA MI725, No 4654. A total of ten rhombic antennas was installed,
and programming was beamed to China in Chinese and English.

When in use with the relay of VOA programming, the shortwave transmitters
were identified in VOA scheduling as Manila 1, Manila 2, and Manila 3.
When they were on air with PBS programming, they were identified on air as
PBS Malolos.

A set of temporary co-ordinating studios for PBS was installed in an
already available public building in Manila, on the fourth floor of the
Ramon Roces Building. Occasional additional programming was prepared in
the United States by United Nations Radio in New York.

In the era immediately following the end of World War 2, the shortwave
scene in the Philippines was so convoluted and mixed up, with so many
stations relaying the programming from other stations, and utilizing a
strange mixture of various designated callsigns, that it is almost im-
possible to trace who was who back at that time. (However in fairness to
the postwar Far East Broadcasting Company in Manila, it should be stated
that they generally operated their network of mediumwave and shortwave
stations in conformity with their registered callsigns.)

When conditions began to return to somewhat normal during the latter part
of the 1940s and into the 1950s, the registered callsigns for PBS short-
wave were listed in the DUH series. Consecutive callsigns identified
consecutive shortwave frequencies, as DUH2 on 6170 kHz, DUH3 on 9570 kHz,
DUH4 on 9615 kHz, and DUH5 on 11840 kHz.

These four DUH callsigns identified the usage of shortwave channels as was
the custom back then, not the usage of the specific shortwave transmitters

The change for the initial prefix for radio station callsigns in the
Philippines from the K prefix to the D prefix occurred unexpectedly and
without prior announcement on January 1, 1949. This sudden move caught the
international radio world as an unexpected surprise.

In 1954, the powerful new Voice of America relay station at Poro Point,
some 150miles north of the national capital Manila was taken into service,
on both mediumwave and shortwave. However at this stage, the VOA usage of
the six year old Malolos station, Manila VOA, was retained with its
regular scheduling of VOA programming. In addition, PBS programming on
shortwave continued from Malolos according to their prior scheduling.

However a huge new VOA shortwave relay station was taken into regular ser-
vice at Tinang, some 50 miles north of Manila in 1968, with ultimately
a dozen huge transmitters at 250 kW each. In addition a total of 31 cur-
tain antennas was installed. At that stage, the VOA usage of the now
twenty year old somewhat temporary station station at Malolos was discard-
ed, and whatever was left of its serviceable equipment was donated to PBS.

In 1967 for example, PBS was listed with two hours of daily programming
on callsign DUB4 with 5 kW on 3286 kHz. During the next year (1968),
PBS shortwave was shown with callsign DUB4 now on 3156 kHz together with
callsign DUH2 on 6170 kHz, maybe with 50 kW or whatever was available.
Two years later again (1970), after VOA Tinang was activated, PBS was
shown with 7 an a half kW on 9580 kHz, and maybe with 50 kW on 11950 kHz.

These days (2022), Radio Pilipinas PBS is listed with a nationwide network
of two dozen or more mediumwave and FM relay stations. Their programming
on shortwave is provided by VOA at their huge relay station at Tinang.

The current scheduling for PBS shortwave via Tinang is as follows:

Filipino Service, 17:30 - 19:30 local time, 01:30 - 03:30 UTC
9960  12120  15190 kHz  Japan, Russia, China, India, Southeast Asia,
Europe, Middle East and Northern Africa.
English Service,  02:00 - 03:30 local time, 10:00 - 11:30 UTC
12010  15640  17820 kHz.

Radyo Pilipina's programs can also be heard via live audio streaming
in the internet from 11:30 pm to 12:00 noon of the next day PST.

Yes, PBS Manila on shortwave issued many QSL cards, though at times
somewhat spasmodically. Their QSL was generally an oversized card, with
handwritten details confirming the reception of their programming.

Google Streetview for the Philippines appeared today Sept 16, 2015.

No coverage of Radio Veritas site at Lipay.

But there is close coverage of the old or inactive SW site at Marulas,
Valenzuela. (which still has plenty of MW masts & other antennas).

Looking around the street there might well be a vertical mast & a possible
SW dipole strung between two lattice masts. I attach a couple of photos.

fall 1952 Article About VOA Transmitter Sites:
<http://jandd.org/Okinawa/VOA%20Cathode%20Press%20Fall%201952.pdf>

re Early 1952 VOA publication.
According to my records, VOA inaugurated a relay station at Malolos,
Bulacan, on 11 Sept 1947. It consisted of a 50 kW transmitter on 920 kHz,
as well as a 7.5 kW, and two 50 kW SW txes.

In 1953 a second station was added at Poro La Union, with a 1000 kW trans-
mitter on 1140 kHz, and two 15 kW SW txes, and subsequently two 35 kW,
and two 100 kW SW txes.

In 1969 the Malolos facilities were acquired by Radio Veritas and Voice of
the Philippines, as the Tinang station had recently come on the air.
I hope this helps.

Construction plans for PBS (RADYO NG BAYAN) in 2004.

Construction of Transmitter Building for DZRK Radyo ng Bayan Tabuk. The
provincial govt of Tabuk, Kalinga provided the Philippine Broadcasting
Service with a two (2) hectare for our tx building. The construction of
the tx building will enable our stn to have a wider coverage area.

Construction of a satellite studio for DZAG Radyo ng Bayan Agoo in San
Fernando, La Union. The Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University
provided spaces for the studio/offices of Radyo ng Bayan Agoo.
San Fernando being the Regional center for Region 1 is the most ideal for
PBS to be able to serve its listener.

Repainting of Tower, Improvement of grounding system and Conversion into
folded unipole of DXRP Radyo ng Bayan Davao. Based on the frequency, the
stn is using the tower height of DXRP must be 369 ft instead of 240 ft.

Since the area is not adequate, the next best thing is converting the
tower into folded unipole. With this system our coverage area will defini-
tely widen. Construction of recording room for Radyo ng Bayan Davao.
The stn does not have its own recording studio, with a recording studio of
their own, they can produce their own plugs, dramas, etc.

Renovation of studio building of DWRB Radyo ng Bayan Naga. It had been ten
years since the stn was constructed. The roofing had to be totally
changed. The walls, studios had to be renovated and re-painted.

Re-roofing, Repainting, Construction of recording booth, construction of
storeroom and garage for DYOG Radyo ng Bayan Calbayog. No renovation had
been done since its initial operation. The sce vehicle is subjected to the
elements. Perimeter Fence for antenna tower of DYOG. To protect our tower
from people stealing our grounding system

Renovation of Studio and Transmitter building for DXDC Radyo ng Bayan Tawi
- Tawi. The ceilings had to be replaced. The doorjambs are dilapidated.
The whole building must have a make over.

Construction of generator house for DZEQ Radyo ng Bayan Baguio. Presently,
the generator of DZEQ has no housing and is subjected to the elements. 9.
Repainting of AM tower and re-tensioning of guy wires of DZEQ. The tower
is rusting so are the guy wires. Renovation of studio / Transmitter build-
ing for DWRM Palawan. Roofing and ceilings had to be replaced, and the
whole building had to be termites treated.

Repainting of tower, tx building and ATU housing for DWFR Radyo ng Bayan
Bontoc. The tower is rusting, the tx building needs renovation. Perimeter
Fence for Transmitter building DWFR Radyo ng Bayan Bontoc. Our tx building
is located on top of the mountain and has to be protected from intruders.

Perimeter Fence for DZAG studio/ Transmitter building. Since there are two
VSAT antennas in the area, fencing is necessary for the protection of the
equipment.

members include Lenovo, LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony or TP Vision ...

USA   KVOH Schedule Change.

Hi, Glenn. Here in California, our electricity supply continues to teeter
on the brink. Last week, there were rolling blackouts in many areas, in-
cluding in Simi Valley where our studios are located. In spite of this,
our electricity bill for KVOH has more than doubled in the past few months
- to a level which for us is unsustainable.

As a result, we have reluctantly taken the decision to scale back our
broadcasts to three nights per week, on Western Hemisphere Friday, Satur-
day & Sunday evenings only. This goes into effect from tonight (0000 UTC
Sat 17th Nov.)

So, the schedule for 9975 kHz is now 0000-0500 UTC Sat/Sun/Mon, all in
English apart from one 30-minute program in Spanish at 0000 UTC on Sun.

Our webstream continues to operate 24x7, and on these three nights offers
a repeat of the 0000-0500 programming from 0500-1000. From 1000-2400, the
webstream is in Spanish.

An updated schedule is on our website below, and is also attached to this
email.

The two programs we air for DXers and SWL's are now heard as follows:

Frecuencia al Dia - Sun 0000 UTC
AWR Wavescan      - Mon 0000 UTC (repeated at 0500 UTC on webstream only)

When North America reverts to Standard Time (at 0900 UTC on Sun 6th Nov),
the above broadcast hours will be adjusted to 0100-0600 UTC, and the web-
stream switch from English to Spanish will occur at 1100 UTC instead of
1000 UTC.

VANUATU   7932.056 kHz  Sept 6 at 0612 UT, NEW FREQUENCY for R. Vanuatu,
JBA music and talk vs CODAR. Therefore the fundamental 3945 kHz which used
to double on 7890 kHz, must have shifted to 3966 kHz !

May have been there for a while since much better heard X3 on 11835 kHz
has been missing. Many tnx to discovery by Ron Howard, who reported on the
WOR iog Sept 5: [...]

11898.086 kHz on Sept 6 at 0608 UT, JBA carrier, presumed RV 3 x 3966.03
kHz this is *much* weaker than it used to be on 11835 kHz. First I had
a very slightly stronger JBA carrier on 11897.538 kHz, no idea what, could
be local birdie. After that, I made 7932.056 kHz log. Note that 11895 kHz
is normally dominated by CRI English via EAST TURKISTAN, std denunciation,
at Sept 5, but not much from that tonight, with higher-latitude paths de-
graded. Nothing around 15864 either. [...]

- 7932.05 kHz on Sept 7 at 0647 UT, R. Vanuatu is JBA vs CODAR, not de-
tected on 11898+ kHz at first but yes, JBA carrier at 0653 UT. It seems
that frequency change time is now 0659/0700 UT, after which Ron Howard
found a totally different set of harmonically related frequencies !:

"Sept 7 - After 0659* UT on 7932 kHz, I went looking for Vanuatu. Not on
the usual frequencies. Found Radio Vanuatu on new 8620.22 kHz, as measur-
ed on my old Eton E1 (am sure someone can get a more accurate measure-
ment!); mostly fair; // 4310.11 kHz (poor) // 12930.33 kHz (very poor).

- 7932.055 kHz on Sept 8 at 0620 kHz, R. Vanuatu JBA direct vs CODAR; JBA
carrier on 11898+ kHz. Second and third harmonix of untried 3966+ kHz
ex-3945 kHz. At 0657 UT, 7932 kHz off already. By 0702 UT on Sept 8 after
another frequency change, JBA talk and music on 8620.381 kHz as discovered
last night by Ron Howard, which is 2nd harmonic of 4310.190 kHz, JBA
carrier at 0707 UT. Also on X3 12930.6 kHz approx. at 0705 UT, JBA carrier
vs high noise level. Nothing on X4 17241- kHz at 0709 UT.

- 7932.05 kHz on Sept 9 at 0558 UT past 0600 UT, R. Vanuatu still here vs
CODAR on 2 x 3966+ kHz; better at 0635 UT, inaudible on 3966 kHz; trace
JBA carrier 11898+ kHz vs huge Chinese on 11895 kHz. Cannot stay awake
past 0700 QSY, but Gary Pence and Wolfgang Bueschel reconfirm 4310+ kHz,
8620+ kHz, 12930+ kHz.

7932+ kHz on Sept 11 at 0623 UT, R. Vanuatu still audible here on 2x3966+
with music vs. CODAR. At 0659 UT it's already switched to the other set:
8620.377 kHz, S2/S4; 12960.567 kHz, S2/S3; 4310.189 kHz, JBA. Each measur-
ed independently but very close harmonic matches.

WRTH 2023

Article from Radio Reporter about WRTH future.

After seven decades of publication, the World Radio TV Handbook (WRTH)
will also be available as a web app. Listening enthusiasts from all over
the world can rejoice: the "Directory of Global Broadcasting" will also be
available on mobile phones. By consulting it, one can find out, for
example, which stations are broadcasting from the Amazon region and which
programmes are available in Korea, the Maldives or Switzerland.

Whether remote reception on shortwave, international services for foreign
countries, political propaganda broadcasts for crisis areas or commercial
stations on FM and DAB+ digital radio, the WRTH contains all the details
in a clear form.

The first edition of the yearbook was published in Denmark in 1947 and
WRTH Publications Limited managed it until 2022, when it transferred the
rights to Radio Data Center GmbH (RDC), based in Freising, Germany.
"The yearbook is an indispensable reference work for radio listeners and
everyone who moves professionally in the world of radio" said

Guenter Lorenz - German call sign DL3GLF  <glorenz -at- lorenzsoft.de>
Managing Director of Radio Data Center GmbH. Who added "we are very pleas-
ed to publish the 77th edition in December 2022 simultaneously as a book
and as a web app".

The WRTH is an indispensable reference for orientation in radio listening.
Initially, the book addressed DXers with an interest in shortwave and the
"tropical bands", as well as medium wave. The FM band, as used by the
national / public broadcasters, was also covered, but not completely: the
liberalisation of the airwaves, which began in Italy in 1975 and spread
throughout Europe, saw the emergence of thousands of stations in just a
few years, making it impossible to publish their tens of thousands of
frequencies in WRTH.

For reasons of space, WRTH was often limited to the major networks (12233
stations are active in the Old Continent alone, of which 8786 are
commercial).

Full data can be found on FMLIST (founded in 1986 by Guenter Lorenz),
which under the management of Radio Data Center has strengthened the
worldwide team of contributors, expanding the database to a professional
level, e.g by producing an identikit for each radio station.

Future editions for WRTH will make comprehensive use of data from FMLIST.
This synergy will make the WRTH also more attractive to professionals
interested in a global directory including FM and all variants of digital
broadcast (DRM, DAB, HD Radio).

The following news appears on several mailing lists dedicated to
radiolistening:

The next edition of the "world's most comprehensive and up-to-date guide
to broadcasting" will be published in December 2022 in both a print and
