ANGUILLA   6090 kHz / 11775 kHz back?

I have been listening to Pastor Melissa Scott preaching on 6090 kHz since
2225 UTC on Dec 4. Her long sermon ended at 2307 UT. Then some music, a
phone number and then archived Gene Scott started at 2310 UT. Then another
request for reservations for upcoming Sunday service at 2312 UT. More
music and then more old Gene Scott ramblings.

No ID heard. Checked FCC HF listings and no USA based station has this
freq registered for this Winter season.

I heard Anguilla site was destroyed. If this isn't the Anguilla
transmitter, where is it coming from?
(Don Hosmer-MI-USA  W8SWL, dxld Dec 4)

6090  Caribbean Beacon Found back on w/old strong signal at 2320 UT
w/canned loop of mx and M giving phone # to call. Then back to The
University Network rel. pgming. Hrd again the next day at 2200 UT, but was
off again on recheck just 3 min. later, and came back on at 2205:35 UT.
Guess either the hurricane damage wasn't as bad as they said, or they got
new equipment installed quickly, or maybe they're even using a different
site.

ANGUILLA   6090.002  Re 6090 kHz, 2345-0015 UT, Dec 5 / 6.

Caribbean Beacon undoubtedly, heard on remote SDR at Florida state eastern
NoAM coast, at 0006 UT on Dec 6.

Full power S=9+30dB or -47dBm proper, 11.8 kHz wideband audio outlet.

Male prayer on Aids illness. But audio accompanied by own main power buzz
peaks on 60, 120, 180, 240, and 300 Hertz buzz, visible either sideband.

ANGUILLA   -  btw. few recipients were very happy.

QSL cards from Caribbean Beacon Anguilla received on this week in Austria
and Germany and other European countries ... issued on reception
confirmation between 2009 and 2014 year ...
{ Beautifully handwritten, and guaranteed NOT virtually }

Meine QSL hat von 2009 bis 2011 - also 2 Jahre gedauert bis ich sie bekam.
Scheint dort ueblich sein, mit oder ohne Hurricane.

Am 05.12.2017 um 10:19 schrieb W.G: Auch hier im Tiroler Mittelgebirge
traf (gestern) eine spaete QSL-Karte (wunderschoen handgeschrieben, und
garantiert NICHT virtuell) ein.

Der RR war vom Februar 2014, von der Frequenz 6.090 kHz.

Man betonte die -relative- Wichtigkeit der RRs, auf die Zerstoerung der
Sendeantenne wurde kein Bezug genommen, es gab somit auch keinen
indirekten Spendenaufruf.

Wie dem auch sei, meine Freude ist betraechtlich, hatte auch mit dieser
QSL in keiner Weise mehr gerechnet.

AUSTRALIA   5045 kHz {probably Ozy Radio Razorback NSW-AUS, wb.} on Nov 24
at 11 UT. A quick check this morning just after 1100 UT showed good audio
on 5045 kHz with local news items. Better than they have been the last few
days. Surprisingly there was no trace of any SIBC carrier on 5020 kHz,
checked again 1122 UT still no trace. The top of the 80m band was unusu-
ally full of strong BC stations - 3945 and 3925 kHz were loud, 3985 kHz
next best and then 3930 kHz // 3910 kHzwith what sounded like jamming
mixed in as well.

5045 kHz  Heard Ozy Radio, Razorback NSW-AUS, at 1226-1436 UT on Nov 30.
Heard O, but today had strong interference from OTH radar (via China?).
1302 UT heard the usual "Waltzing Matilda," but badly mixing with OTH
radar (brief audio attached). The Ozy Radio signal strength was the
strongest I have heard and without the interference of the OTH radar,
would have had fair reception and probably very readable. Can only hope
that tomorrow there will be no radar interference.

BELGIUM   1125  Re: Belgium. Michel Fremy just wrote on WRTH F_B group:

3 hrsBelgium: The 1125 kHz 10 kw medium wave transmitter RTBF in Houdeng
was put out of service for one week to allow the installation of DAB+
transmitters.

It has just been put back into service but should be cut definitively at
the end of the year. If you wish to maintain the medium waves, write to

RTBF Direction des Emetteurs et relais
Boulevard Auguste Reyers 52
B-1044 Schaerbeek, Belgium, Europe.

Via Mediumwave.info.
RTBF Radio VivaCite back on 1125 KHz. Heard them again 1 hour with a very
strong signal. On this list they are still marked as switched off:

<http://www.mwlist.org/mwlist_quick_and_easy.php?area=1&kHz=1125>

They might try to find out how many listeners are left on the medium wave
by switching the transmitter on and off and take note of the amount of
complaints they are getting.

"Glenn - I'm hearing the digital racket around 6050 kHz right now (1805

FRANCE   7240  Strange happened with Radio Biafra relay at TDF Issoudun
this morning, when monitored a little late.

Lasted til 0528 UT full power 100kW, but 'exiter' low level signal heard
later too, til approx. 0532 UT then.

My late tune-in around 0516 UT on Dec 4 showed Radio Biafra program in
progress, mostly WeAfrican music played and female voice ID "This is Radio
Biafra coming to you from London" or "... broadcasting from London".
Excellent audio quality feed from London to Issoudun to state.

S=9 in Germany, Belgium, and Liverpool UK remote SDR's at 0517 UT.
At 05.19:30 UT phone number given, schedule 05-06 UT / 06-07?LT? given.

Flute mx at 0520 UT. When tuned to greater distance from TDF Issoudun
bcast center location to northern Stockholm Sweden post at Olle's remote
SDR, I could heard stronger S=9+15dB signal there of 7.8 kHz wideband
block.

Nothing heard on 25 mb 11530 kHz / 11580 kHz from Florida, not in European
posts on Dec 4, neither in east coast North American remote SDR's so far.

Program Radio Biafra end on SW 7240 kHz at exact 05.28:40 UT.

But after that, noted a - probably - antenna move/switch or power increase
from 100 to 250/500 kW procedure ON AIR for half a minute from Issoudun
broadcast center site at 05.29 UT, signal increased to S=9+35dB signal.
Later on at 05.30:50 UT outlet decreased to an 'exciter' like signal level
of S=6-7, when set to smaller bandwidth, I could seen an EMPTY carrier
later with poor 5 peaks strings on it.

Two minutes heard African vernacular language program talk of - probably -
Yorba/Igbo langs, as given in latest Aoki Nagoya database list entry under
7240 ISS request ?  Who knows ...

Re: 7240 kHz - Radio Biafra Broadcasting from London.

Still on the air from Issoudun. Recorded 7240 kHz this morning (Dec 5)
using the University Enschede Twente SDR receiver. Transmitter came on at
04:59:48 UT with opening music beginning at 05.00:11 UT. Good to fair
signal. Same talk segments, at least in English, as we've heard before and
with frequent IDs, schedules, and text message contact number, and
interspersed musical selections. But programming started with a short
prayer in vernacular, presumably Igbo, introduced in English.
Only a half-hour program. Audio ended at 05.28:31 UT and transmitter
off at 05.30:02 UT. Timings based on start time of recording in recording

INDIA   All India Radio in Russian.

Dear colleagues on the radio hobby! I asked for your assistance and
feedback on the collective letter to the All-India Radio about the
frequency change.

A big thanks to those who answered, and also I propose to "sign" the
appeal to those who have not yet "signed up", but just want to hear
Russian speech more often in the square in their receiver.

I enclose a rough outline of the letter, I ASK YOUR ADDITIONS and
ADJUSTMENTS to send to my mail  <varzin-ne -at- yandex.ru>
so as not to "spam" the group, thanks to which, I have the opportunity to
apply to you. Mallika Gupta (announcer-presenter of All India Radio)
replied that, I quote "I offer my help in translation if it is needed".

Therefore, forget about the lines in English. Suggestions and remarks set
out in Russian. I would be glad if you post your comments before November
29 at 11:59 PM GMT (-3 UTC [sic]).

Below, you will find your FI, city, e-mail, email address or phone number
(as you wish), your blogs, if you are (specify the web address) and just
belonging to the dx-signatures to confirm the identity for the Hindus that
you - "a living person", you can simply "specify" as a listener.

For example, Victor Varzin, Leningrad region, Kommunar,
<varzin-ne -at- yandex.ru>
active listener, monitor of the directory Radio broadcasting in Russian
and KBS World Radio; subscriber deneb / opendx, member of the DX-Club SPB,
will be published as a table.

A collective appeal of radio listeners of the Russian service of All-
India Radio.

Hello, dear employees of the Russian edition of A.I.R., employees of the
Foreign Broadcasting Department A.I.R., as well as employees of the
technical department of A.I.R.!

We would like to draw your attention to the unsuccessfully chosen
frequency for broadcasting in the winter period for the Russian edition of
the All-India Radio - 15140 kHz from 1615 to 1715 UT. At this frequency,
on the territory of Russia, transmission at this time is not audible.

This is due to poor passage at frequencies above 12,000 kHz in the dark.
When drawing up the schedule for the winter season, it was apparently not
taken into account that in the winter in Russia it gets dark early,
accordingly, it is necessary to use other frequencies. It's a shame that
due to such omissions, many Russian-speaking listeners of the All-India
Radio remain without receiving the programs, and the corporation is
wasting money allocated from the budget.

It is interesting that, recently, the frequencies of some programs of the
All-India Radio of the following language services were changed: English,
Sinhalese, Dari and Pashto, to avoid interference from other stations. Why
not for the Russian service to change or allocate another frequency for
analogue broadcasting.

In this regard, the request to influence the situation and show
professionalism in solving the problem. Select another frequency for
analogue broadcasting of the Russian service or replace the current one.
In previous years, the passage in the winter period was observed at
frequencies of 11620 kHz and, especially, at 9595 kHz, which are not
currently used. Now the frequency of 9595 kHz is also not suitable,
because during 1615-1715 UT broadcasts the Voice of Turkey radio, using a
powerful transmitter. Ideally, it would be to conduct test transmissions
on several frequencies and choose the best of them, according to the radio
listeners. (on your own, try 7555 kHz, what do you think?)

All India Radio is one of the most important and important sources,
telling about modern India, political and public news, as well as a means
of promoting Indian culture in Russia. I note that this year marked the
70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between
India and Russia. I look forward to your cooperation and activity! 73!

MADAGASCAR/KOREAs    UNID on 6135 kHz - Madagascar?

Most likely RTM Antananarivo scheduled 05-15 UT in hfcc request entry. wb.

I guess it's worth checking that one again. Today I spotted a fair carrier
on a South African SDR on 6135 kHz around 1440 UT. Didn't observe the
exact sign-off time but it was not much after 1500 UT. As mid-summer is
approaching in the southern Hemisphere and still afternoon in South
Africa, I would not expect the signal emanating from so far away. For
example, there is (almost) no trace of the Koreans on 6250 and 6400 kHz
which are audible in Europe, being a candidate for 6135 kHz also.
(Thorsten Hallmann-D, dxld Dec 2)

For most of Nov, Voice of Freedom stayed on 5920 kHz. Has been a long time
since they were last heard on 6135 kHz. VOF, as of Dec 1, continues on
5920 kHz, with light jamming. Here in California, still hearing the daily
strong white noise jamming from North Korea, on 6135 kHz, the former
frequency of VOF.

Madagascar would seem a very likely candidate for the UNID, especially
with 1500 UT approximate sign off. Unfortunately for me, I think the
jamming is too strong for me to tell if there is anyone underneath.
(Ron Howard-CA-USA, dxld via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Dec 2)

{ UNIDENTIFIED }  6135 kHz, *Nov 10* at 1404 UT, very poor talk,
intonation reminds me of Jeff White, but surely not. Is Voice of Freedom
clandestine from South to North Korea back on this frequency today? Maybe
trace of noise jamming. As of Nov 8, Ron Howard said VOF carrier-only was
on 5920 kHz and not on 6135 kHz for a long time. Otherwise, how about
long-path from Madagascar, which also has not been reported in a long
time?!

"Hi Glenn, We moved to 13730 kHz from 05-08 UT to improve early evening

the co-channel on 7355 kHz and research is on to find a clear channel on
