Re: 15805 kHz World Music Radio - WMR.

Frequency 15805 kHz is also being heard on the coast in NW England at
1000 UT on July 6th. The signal is peaking to around S6 with fades down
to S1. After tuning the frequency many times this is the first time
I've been able to positively hear WMR.

Reception is best using my NRD 525 and a loop antenna, but is also audible
- but weaker - via my IC-R75 coupled to a random long wire.

DENMARK    WMR now on 15805 kHz.

World Music Radio is now broadcasting on short wave 15805 kHz with a
new 3 element yagi aerial. Currently the aerial is beamed north thus
providing coverage of WMR in northern Scandinavia - during daytime every
Saturday and Sunday (07-20 UT). Sometimes the signal can also be picked up
in central and southern Europe, in Ireland and western UK, in Russia and
eastern North America.

Meanwhile WMR can also be heard on short wave 5840 kHz 24 hours a day
7 days a week in parts of Europe.

And everywhere via
<www.wmr.radio>

Post and 7 photos of the antenna at this link, you should be able to view
the photos even if not a Facebook member, just check not now if a pop up
appears inviting you to sign up.

GERMANY   "... DAB+-Phantom-Hoerer sorgen fuer Raetsel.."

<https://www.teltarif.de/media-analyse-reichweite-dab-
plus/news/77262.html>

"... Doch sind diese Zahlen wirklich so zuverlaessig?
Ein naeherer Blick in die Auswertung laesst Zweifel zu. So generieren
Sender wie Antenne Niedersachsen, Radio 21 oder der Mantelprogrammanbieter
radio NRW einen Teil ihrer Reichweite ueber das digital-terrestrische
Radio DAB+.

Allerdings: Sie senden gar nicht ueber diesen Verbreitungsweg ..."

"... Fuer die DAB+-Reichweitenstudie, die jetzt in die Gesamtauswertung
integriert wurde, befragten die Reichweitenforscher ausschliesslich
Personen, die bereits ein Digitalradio besitzen. Hier liegt der Verdacht
nahe, dass viele Hoerer zwar denken, sie wuerden ihr Lieblingsprogramm
digital ueber DAB+ hoeren. In Wirklichkeit nutzen sie aber das analoge
UKW-Band."

"... Oft ist ihnen dabei gar nicht der Unterschied bewusst. Sie denken,
sie wuerden das Programm jetzt ueber DAB+ hoeren, weil sie ja nun ein
Digitalradio besitzen. Dabei gab es vor allem bei Multifunktionsgeraeten
mit Bluetooth und CD-Player Aussagen wie "FM ist doch das Radio". ..."

"... Dann gibt es auch Personen, die der Meinung sind, sie besaessen ein
Digitalradio, weil es UKW mit RDS-Anzeige bietet. Eine dritte Gruppe nutzt
anstelle von DAB+ den Verbreitungsweg Internet und kann nicht zwischen
beiden Wegen unterscheiden ..."

"... Neben mehr Aufklaerungsarbeit sollte jedoch auch die ag.ma, also
die Organisation, die fuer die Ermittlung der Reichweiten
verantwortlich ist, ihre Abfragemethoden ueberarbeiten und bei der
Nennung von Sendern pruefen, ob das Programm ueberhaupt auf DAB+
verbreitet wird...."

- - - Diese "Unklarheiten" bei vielen "normalen Radionutzern" kann ich so
bestaetigen, besonders die dritte Gruppe.

Immerhin kann man bei solch' einer Umfrage-Strategie definitiv
resuemieren: 100% aller Befragten besassen ein "Digitalradio".

GREECE   New Greek government and ERT future.

Curious what the new Greek government will do about ERT and whatever is
left of its shortwave operation. IIRC New Democracy was the same party
that attempted the big reorganization of ERT around 2013, resulting in the
rogue operation of ERT SW for several years. The government has proposed
privatizing services, so I would think there will be another attempt at
cutting ERT output.

Also have to wonder about the recent election results in India and the
continuing rumors of the impending demise of AIR on shortwave?

POLICY
The first Govt of the new government - Prime Minister EYP, ERT and RES

Thu, 09/07/2019 - 15:49 MORIASOU TO  19

Several changes to the government's structure bring the Govt deposited
on Monday July 8th night.

To this end, the Ministries of Citizenship and Migration Policy are merged
and the necessary transfer of responsibilities is carried out.

The Department of the Interior also passes the responsibilities of
Administrative Reconstruction, which is abolished. The former Ministry of
Digital Policy turns into a Digital Government ministry.

The former Ministry of Economy and Development becomes the Ministry of
Investment and Development, where the post of Secretary General of
Research and Technology, Gender equality is transferred to the Ministry of
Labor.

Directly to the oversight of the Prime Minister are the General
Secretariat of Information, which is responsible for both state radio and
television , as well as the Athenian and Macedonian News Agency , the
National Printing Office and the National Intelligence Agency .

* Kyriakos Mitsotakis
* New Democracy

NW has not lost time: New regime already in ERT

Fotis Kafarakis left the First Program radio journal and went down to the
political section, taking over with Giannis Troupis, a favorite journalist
of New Democracy that has the image of the observer, ... the management of
the ERT news section.

Indeed, the person responsible until now, Babis Papadakis, the one who
served as a Director in the Directorate-General for Information, did not
even appear in the radio-media.

Eugenia Paschalidou and Yannis Smyrlakis were today in their positions,
but now with trimmed wings.

And all the above without anything official yet.

Resignations to ERT and RES-EAP have begun.

Their resignations were submitted to their meetings with the Deputy
Minister along with the Prime Minister and Government Representative Mr.
Stelios Petsa, ERT Managing Director Yiannis Drosos and the President of
the APE-MPA Michalis Psylos. Mr. Petas thanked them and asked them to stay
in their positions until the procedure for replacing them was completed
and completed.

KOREA REP OF {SOUTH}   KBS - Test Transmission Notice for SW Listeners, -
on July 8th test transmissions at Kimje ended after four weeks improving
work on the various antennas.

KBS WORLD Radio, July 5, 2019

Hello Listeners,
We are delighted to announce that our shortwave transmission from Kimje,
South Korea will be normalized after a three week test transmission
starting at 0400 UTC on July 8th, 2019.
We thank you for your patience during the past year.

Our English programming on 9785 kHz that was initially moved to
1800-2100 UT due to a transmitter problem will be back on 1400-1700 UT
at a stronger output of 250 kW.

Listeners who tune into our programs on 11810 kHz and 15575 kHz can also
expect to enjoy better reception since the current 100 kW transmitter will
be replaced by a 250 kW transmitter.

Please be sure to tune into KBS World Radio during the test transmission
period and send us your reception reports.
Your feedback will help us find ways to improve your listening experience.

Thank you!

Hi Glenn, I hope all is well with you.
Today I received a message from KBS, informing of a test period for three
weeks starting on July 8.

Broadcasts in English towards India 1800-2100 UT on 9785 kHz will move
back to previous time of 1400-1700 UT and power increased
from 100 to 250 kW.

All transmissions on 11810 kHz to Europe & South America and on 15575 kHz
for North & South America will change from 100 kW back to 250 kW.

Apparently these broadcasts were on lower power starting from the end
of last August, quote: "due to an antenna problem". Since different
antennas are involved, it might have been trouble with antenna
switching, rather than a fault with the 250 kW unit.

Maybe we can expect a few dBs increase in signal strength (if the
signals get through to North America and Europe in the summer).
For such a technically advanced country as Korea, KBS frequency planning
and scheduling according to propagation conditions is woefully
inadequate. Reception reports on the test period are requested.

6185 kHz, on July 4 at 0135 UT, music from XEPPM, back on the air after
about a week out of air, S=9+10/20dB but that includes the high local line
noise level. Manuel Mendez, Spain, reported it earlier, and Ron Howard too
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, hcdx and dxld July 4)

I briefly summarize the followings: severe budget cuts at
IMER (not including XEPPM) threaten existence of some of their
stations; people worried about losing their jobs. Affects XERF 1570 kHz
and Radio Mexico International, once a SW station, now webcaster.

I've seen several posts on here recently regarding Radio Educacion Mexico.
I am glad to see they are still on, I haven't heard their signal in a long

here in south central Kentucky. Easy listening music in Spanish.
SINPO 44434.

MYANMAR   7345 kHz, Thazin Radio, via Pyin Oo Lwin, at 1215+ UT on July
6 & 7. Normally this frequency is totally covered by a strong CNR1,
but that has been off the air for two consecutive days; July 7,
from 1242 UT, call-in show in vernacular and pop songs; weak signal,
but now a clear frequency for them. When will CNR1 return,
again destroying Thazin's reception?

NIGERIA   Voice of Nigeria on 4 July.

I was home on 4 Jul (no, not because I was celebrating; we did that 3 days
earlier up here) so decided to record Voice of Nigeria on nominal
11770 kHz to catch the sign-on and sign-off and the program content.
The transmitter signed on at 16:40 UT and English audio started a
few seconds later with a program ("Africa Today") in progress.

Fair to poor reception at first but later on at times reception quality
was fairly good. Pretty well all talk programs such as "Beyond Bullets:
Roadmap to Peace." It was mentioned for that program in particular that
it is also carried on Armed Forces Radio, 107.7 FM in Abuja along with
another station whose identity I didn't catch.

Lots of public service announcements about Nigeria and Voice of Nigeria
between program segments with mention of the VoN website

<http://www.von.gov.ng>

and the availability of the VoN app. When signal quality was good, the
announcers were mostly understandable, with the accents not too heavy.

Some of the IDs were hard to make out at times but in one case the
frequency of 15120 kHz was mentioned. At 18:00 UTC, the ID given was
specifically for the English Service of the Voice of Nigeria.
It's at 18:00 UT that CRI starts up on 11775 kHz for its two-hour German
service to Europe. There was only slight QRM noticed from this
transmission.

Just before 19:00 UT, the English-speaking announcer said goodbye and
mentioned that the Hausa-based service was coming up next.

This turned out to be the Fulfulde or Fula service.
The ID in Fulfulde is "Radio Konngol Naajeeiya."

It sounded like "Radio Congo" to me so I had to look it up. At 20:00 UT,
the Hausa service began, which has the ID "Muryar Najeriya."

Both the Fulfulde and Hausa services were preceded by the drumming IS.
The transmitter went off at 20:58 UT a few seconds after the conclusion of
the Hausa service.

11769.901 kHz, on June 29 at 1734 UT, JBA carrier, presumably Voice of

theirs which had been disused for many years. The offset is in keeping
with all its other frequencies shifted circa 0.1 kHz to the low side.

Was unfortunate NBC reactivated on a day that VOI had a decent audio

ROMANIA   RRI Bucharest contest ...

<https://www.rri.ro/en_gb/iasi_historical_capital_of_romania-2601239>

Radio Romania International/ Contest / Iasi -
Historical Capital of Romania Iasi - Historical Capital of Romania
2019-July-01 - Eugen Cojocariu, Alecu Marciuc

Dear friends,
RRI invites you to participate in a new prize winning contest,
entitled "Iasi - Historical Capital of Romania", devoted to the city of
Iasi and Iasi County in northeastern Romania.

In 2018, the year of the Great Union Centennial, the city of Iasi was
declared under Law no. 361/2018 "Historical Capital of Romania".

Also last year Alba Iulia was proclaimed "Capital of the Great Union".
Iasi was the capital of the Principality of Moldavia between 1564-1859,
one of the two capitals of the United Romanian Principalities
(Moldavia and Wallachia) over 1859-1862, as well as the capital of the
Kingdom of Romania between 1916-1918, during the Great War, when Bucharest
was under German occupation.

Over May 2, 2019 and May 1, 2020 Iasi has been declared the Capital of
Youth in Romania, as part of a national programme devoted to young people.
On June 1, 2019 Iasi was visited by his Holy Father Pope Francis,
becoming for a few hours the world capital of religion. Iasi is a city of
culture and the arts, of high-quality education, history, religion
and tourism, but also the birthplace of scores of iconic Romanians.

We invite you to follow RRI's broadcasts, our site  <www.rri.ro>  and our
F_B and LinkedIn profiles and provide correct answers, in writing, to the
contest questions. The contest ends on August 31, 2019, mailing date
(August 31, at midnight, Romania's time, for online participants).

Two Grand Prizes will be offered to two RRI listeners, consisting of
an 8-day (7-night) trip, full-board, over October 10-17, 2019,
sponsored by Majestic Hotel in Iasi.

As usual, winners will be asked to cover personal transportation to
Romania as well as proceedings to obtain a visa for Romania, where
necessary. Additional prizes consisting in objects that promote the
culture of Iasi will be up for grabs.

The contest is co-organized by the Iasi City Hall, The Bishopric of
Moldavia and Bukovina, the Roman-Catholic Diocese of Iasi,
the Iasi National Museum Complex, the Federation of Youth NGOs
from Iasi, Radio Romania Iasi and other partners.

And now the questions:
- In what context was Iasi the capital of Romania?
- What was Iasi declared over 2019-2020?
- Which world leader visited Iasi early this summer?

Please tell us what prompted you to participate in the contest and why
you are listening to RRI's broadcasts and following RRI's content online.

Our address is:
Radio Romania International, 60-64 G-ral Berthelot Street, Sector 1,
Bucharest, P.O.Box 111, code 010165, Romania, Europe.

fax 00.40.21.319.05.62,  e-mail: <engl -at- rri.ro>

Please send your answers by August 31, 2019, mailing date

RUSSIA   I join in the condolences on the occasion of the death of our
esteemed colleague Mikhail Timofeev! I was not personally acquainted with
Michael, only by correspondence, but since the early 80s of the last
century, when he sent me his newsletter "Misha", which preceded the
"Exotic DH-News". He printed it on one of the very first then primitive
computers.

(Dmitry Kutuzov, Ryazan-RUS, "deneb-radio-dx"; via
Anatoly Klepov-RUS, RUSdx #1036 via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews July 7)

With regret I learned about the premature demise of Mikhail Timofeev, a
serious dieter amateur radio enthusiast, a distant radio enthusiast. His
Delta (or frame) 4x100m, coupled with the P-250 by the late 80s - early
90s of the last century, allowed him to take dozens of local stations in
Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Latin American countries!

I corresponded with Misha by mail and by e-mail, when I participated in
the work of the Leningrad DH-club, in the newsletter "Exotic DH-news", and
I always felt a sensitive and interested attitude to the interlocutor. It
is unfortunate that outstanding people leave so early! It seems that Misha
was a happy man, because He managed to work by profession in the industry
of his many years of hobby! Everlasting memory! Deep condolences to the
family of Mikhail Timofeev !
(Valentin Kolchanov, Tver-RUS; via
Anatoly Klepov-RUS, RUSdx #1036 via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews July 7)

Mikhail Timofeev is one of the most famous radio listeners in the world, a
specialist in radio stations of the tropical bands, a very responsive and
noble person, one of the HH group of students from St. Petersburg /

HH. - With deep regret.

Very annoying, with very inaccurate reading accuracy of the frequencies

it's almost "noon" when 51 meters is not usable. A pity for SFAW and PPPP.

Re: Worlds Last Chance opening day

It should not be necessary to cut the transmitter while the antenna is
being rotated (unlike other antenna switching), but there was a break at
0355:20 to 0356:55 UT during their music span.

It's pretty clearly not multilingual changing every hour as originally
planned; yet another group just posted that schedule as if it were correct
it's below from the Observer archive for your amusement.

So far since 0000 it's all been English, right? I haven't listened very
closely to their nonsense. I did hear a minute or two of hour opening and
wonder if they are playing the same English hour over and over?

Observer also has this which must have been about WLC, but did anyone ever
hear 9330 kHz in Arabic any time in June? Maybe now we will find them
going from English to Arabic at 0800 UT and all the way to 2300 UT ?

USA   9330 kHz WBCQ #6 transmitter.
At first it's just about AW's early pirate or "civil disobedience"
radio days. Among info gleaned from what AW said on this interview:

WBCQ=6 is not full 500 kW power yet, but almost. Will be in a couple
of days. (This contradicts previous info from WBCQ that it had been up
to 500 kW for several days now.) ERP is almost 20 megawatts at 9 MHz.

The 200-ton Ampegon antenna is precisely balanced and can be moved by
hand rather than two 3 hp motors, very quietly. 9330 is currently
aimed 270 degrees true, toward Mexico and Central America (no, that
would be 240 degrees or less). It takes 2.5 minutes for the antenna to
rotate 360 degrees. Has TimTron hooked his ham rig up to the Ampegon?
Not yet. Tom would like to do that when he visit Monticello.

The very large final tube cost $80K. Another one for standby is on order.
5130 transmitter is #2. WBCQ property occupies 200 acres (earlier he gave
a smaller figure over 100). The Weiners live in a house "down the road"
and there is no RF overload problem at ground level from the 500 kW.

Will have new QSL cards for the first time in 20 years. But AW hardly
has spare time to send them. Please include SASEs.
The entire interview lasted until 0200 UT.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, hcdx and dxld July 4)

9330 WBCQ #6 not.  Back at the dials at 04:40 UT July 7, I note that the
super station is not on the air but instead the old 50 kW on 9330.175 kHz
carrying the Overcomer Ministry. Why waste the wattage on Brother Stair!
I'll miss the eclectic programming carried the last few weeks on 9330.000!
73, (Walt Salmaniw-CAN, wor July 7)

Then you'll really love it as soon as they go 24h/7d  WLC ministry
programming in a week or two ;)

In the mean time I wish they would back off on the audio compression...
sounds like a CB station run by someone who needs to see the meters at
100 all the time. Or is this maybe part of the burn-in process?
Hard to listen to in any case.

Southwest Florida Online - Sunday Morning News
From LaBelle, Florida for Hendry and Glades County and the Lake
Okeechobee region. Don Browne, editor. Friday, June 28, 2019.

"The newly constructed high power shortwave station and gigantic fully
rotatable antenna system is funded by World's Last Chance, LLC, a
Wyoming corporation and religious ministry headed by Galal P. Doss,
a former Seventh-Day Adventist and wealthy cosmetics company owner
from Egypt."

More here:
<http://swflorida.blogspot.com/2019/06/flat-earth-programs-on-worlds-

"Galal Doss has a track record of making bizarre prophecies,
anti-Catholic videos, and claims the earth is flat (watch one of the
organization's "flat earth proof" videos above) and says calendars
should be lunar based on the moon phases and their interpretation of
the Bible. Posted by Don Browne at 2:41 PM "

After calling the charity verification hotline at IRS and looking
through the database hosted by the Wyoming Secretary of State, this
group appears to not be organized as if it were a church under Wyoming
law and they're not on the roster of organizations at IRS for tax
deductibility of donations. Comparing its organization papers against
those of more traditional churches show some big differences as
World's Last Chance has a general LLC incorporation as if you weren't
sure if you were going to open restaurant or start manufacturing
widgets. If you had any concerns about the group's tax situation, you
can always fill out Form 3949-A (Information Referral) found online at

<https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3949a.pdf>

and send it in to the Fresno processing campus for the triage team
there to review.
(Stephen Michael Kellat [an IRS employee], dxld ibid.)

Thanks for that. Considering the expense of this project one does
wonder about funding sources. As is often said try to follow the
money (John Figliozzi-FL-USA, dxld ibid.)

Really while it's nice to have a SW station on the air, it's
definitely not nice to see who gets on the air.

"The world's most powerful radio station, 500,000-watt WBCQ in northern
Maine" - interesting definition of "world": Anything east of the Atlantic,
like 500 kW facilities with the same antenna model (and groups of them,
not just a single one) in Germany, France and China, does not exist.

And when disregarding the antenna model it is only the most powerful
station in Maine, and even this only because the 500 kW transmitter near
Bangor, last known as WHRA, was closed and subsequently dismantled
in 2009 (any information about the current use, if any, of the station
building that is still there in the available images?). WHRI has also
500 kW transmitters and chances are that they could still run them at full
power would they want to do so. 500 kW transmitters in disrepair still
operational at WEWN, too.

It appears that Galal Doss remained in Egypt not so completely unnoticed
as elsewhere:

<http://www.orthodox-christian-comment.co.uk/curiosities-
seventhdayadventist&egyptchrstians.htm>

<https://atoday.org/is-the-new-president-of-egypt-an-adventist/>

And he not just calls the pope an antichrist, in 2005 he made a really
cute prophecy:
<http://www.remnantofgod.org/GalalDoss-FalseProphet.htm>

Someone with a bit more time to spend could also check if a first
impression is correct: That Doss could be a bad Antisemite.

By the way, it seems that Doss is a mere three years younger than Stair.

VENEZUELA   More AM Stations have left the air: Radio 2000 in
Cumana-1500 kHz and Radio Nueva Esparta-920 kHz appear to be the only
remaining AM stations in the east of Venezuela. I haven't been able to
hear Radio Centro, Cantaura-610 kHz for many days and there hasn't
been any news about Radio Cumana 680 kHz for months.
