7420 kHz, 17.50-18.00 UTC on March 28, 2021. (reply of March 29).

The letter says that, on the whole, the test was unsuccessful - problems
with signal modulation on the transmitter itself + interference from a
Chinese station on the same frequency. Read more about the test results on
the RNEI website:

ARMENIA   We're having a test transmission from Armenia this Sunday at
17:30 UT (18:30UK, 19:30CEST) on 7420 kHz. We'll be trying different
processing methods on different songs too so would love your feedback on
which song has the best audio quality on your equipment.

Our full post on the website about the transmission mentions the full list
of countries expected to receive a strong signal and the ones expected to
receive a good signal during this test. I really hope you get to listen to
us and that this works well.

We are testing next month a group of 9670 kHz beam broadcasts too, listed
on our website, to Africa, Northern Europe and Asia so check those out if
you are able to!

ARMENIA   Re:  7350 oder 7420 kHz, was stimmt bei Radio Eriwan ?  wb.

Tja, Pech gehabt. 7350 kHz channel waere frei gewesen - auf 7420 kHz
hingegen kaempft das heute auch nicht besonders starke Signal aus
Armenien mit einem anderen Sender.
(Patrick Robic-AUT, A-DX groups.io March 28)

Da kommt eine Menge "Pech" zusammen, so wie sich das auch in der HF-Zone
liest.

- laut "Winterfahrplan" und MBR war die Frequenz frei in diesem Slot,
  aber da war doch 'was letzte Nacht...

meine Bemerkungen:
- Sendung war noch zu zeitig, in Westeuropa war es noch nicht richtig
  dunkel, bezogen auf Noratus.

- Sendung => 330 degr , das waere Baltikum, Osteuropa und Skandinavien.
  Fuer UK waere > 305 degr besser gewesen

- daher beste Signale bei KIWI SDRs in NOR, SWE, FIN......

- Roseanna experimentierte mit stark komprimiertem Audio, was bei WRMI
  funktioniert, aber nicht bei Noratus.

- der Audioeingang uebersteuerte durch die AF mit dem zu hohen
  Summenpegel voellig, hoerte sich dann wie ein Rauschjammer an.

Den MFSK-64 Daten hat es aber nicht geschadet.
Mal sehen, ob das QAM64 ueberlebt hat.

AUSTRIA/VATICAN STATE   Superb reception from AWR Austria, etc.

When I think of Austria, I only think of 6155 kHz. At 05:25 tonight, I'm
hearing a very loud S=9+10dB signal in Hausa on 9630 kHz via my Masset
Perseus SDR unit.

Mentions of AWR and Nigeria, then the AWR theme song. Listed at 300 kW
from ORS Moosbrunn at 190 degrees, so likely receiving off the back side.
The carrier cut at 05:29 UT. I noticed another strong signal on 9660 kHz
with a RRI IS, and at 05:30 UT into English programming to Europe, South
Asia, and the Pacific.

Again a strong S9 to S=9+10dB signal. Transmitter is also 300 kW beamed
307 degrees. Jumping up to 9745 kHz, an equally strong signal, once again
from ORS Moosbrunn, but this time it's the BBC in Hausa with 300 kW at
195 degrees. Lots of mentions of "Britaniya" and "Amnesty International",
"Algeria", "internet", etc. - "Hausa, BBC" at 05:35 UT.

9410 kHz superb S=9+20dB signal from an old friend, the BBC, but this time
via Santa Maria di Galeria site with 250kW beamed 206 degrees to WeAfrica,
but no problem hearing it here off the NoWe coast of BC!

It's such a treat to stare at my waterfall and see nice clean signals.
No noise, just station after station to hear! - Compare this to my urban
location which is plagued by all the noises of modern living!

CONGO  {Brazzaville}  Christoph Ratzer has received after many years and
countless mails a verification from Radio Congo from Brazzaville. What a
pleasure to have now confirmed broadcasting country No 202 with the
Republic of the Congo.

Unfortunately, the responsible technician also wrote:
"It was our old shortwave radio frequency, but with the advent of TNT
everything has become digital and this frequency is no longer used."
That explains why shortwave 6115 kHz has not been heard for the past few
months. TNT is the French name for DVB-T.

CUBA   RHC English left 9700 kHz channel for their 'old' channel

I bet it's back to 49 meters. Yes, there it is on reactivated 6165 kHz,
S=9+10/20dB, which will be a QRM problem for 6159.93 WBCQ; -70 Hz offset
won't help much; and still on // 6000 kHz.

RHC should really stay on 31m thru the summer for some frequency- and
noise-level diversity, tsk2.

my reports when quoting may have no idea what I'm talking about. Then
standard sign-on announcement with schedule, so I listen closely: yes,
still outdated as the Esperantists are clueless about their own SW
broadcasts:

claims Sundays at 0800 on 6100 kHz, but which wolfie just confirmed is
really at the summer timing of 0700 UT; 1600 UT for this one on 11760,
only, the more recent addition of 15140 kHz unknown to them; and 2230
UT on 15730 kHz, which maybe will chance to be correct, TBD.

6165 kHz, April 4 at 0537 UT, RHC English is back here after 6145 kHz
last night; can't decide which? Hard-soul music during 'Music with a
Message', concentrating on 1971 US anti-war era.

6100 kHz is S=9+30dB but now developing a squeal a la WWCR-1.
6060 kHz is S=9+10dB not buzzy for a change but distorted.
6000 kHz is S=9+30dB but lo-fi A/B comparing to audio bandwidth on 6060.
5040 kHz is back in English for a change, S=9+30dB.

Something's always wrong at RHC.

INDIA   About broadcasting from India - AIR.

Hello dear colleagues in the radio hobby!
I would like to draw your attention to the situation with All India Radio
in Russian.

After the suspension of broadcasting from Mar 2020 due to the coronavirus
pandemic, the editorial office went to work remotely. Since December 17,
the publication of news and comments on the official website of the
Russian service has been stopped. Many radio services have already resumed
their work in one format or another. Also in January, the resumption of
the broadcasting of the Russian service (and in the DRM format) was
announced, which in the end never took place.

A group of enthusiasts, who are not indifferent to Russian-language broad-
casting, proposed to write an appeal to the leadership of All India Radio
demanding the resumption of broadcasting, and in analogue format.
The attached file contains the text of the appeal.

It is proposed that an appeal to not indifferent listeners "sign" by
sending their name, surname, e-mail to the following e-mail:

<save-air-russian -at- yandex.ru>

p.s.
In the past, a similar case was successful (with a change in the broad-
casting frequency of the Russian service). [...]

Anatoly Klepov-RUS, RUSdx #1125 March 21)

Dear representatives of the AIR management!

A group of radio listeners from Russia and other countries appeals to you
the former Soviet Union. We are concerned about the fate of the unit
Russian service All India Radio, which was suspended in March 2020 at
the time of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many services have already resumed their work in one format or another.
The resumption of the Russian service of your radio station was also
announced. However, the return to the air did not take place (according to
some sources, due to for the shortage of employees in the state). It seems
to us that the leadership of AIR does not pay enough attention to the
Russian service, and we seriously fear that that in such conditions,
it may soon be closed. At the meetings of our politicians, the importance
of strengthening friendship and interstate cooperation of our countries.
[...]

We also ask you to take into account that the transfer of broadcasting to
the DRM format will sharply narrow the circle your listeners. The vast
majority of us listen to radio on shortwave in analog format (AM). The
reason is in the absence of affordable DRM receivers market. We mainly use
conventional radios, and they are designed only for analog signals.
[...]
Thank you! We attach the names and contacts of the listeners to this
letter, who expressed their support for this appeal.

is missing, supposed to begin at *1400 UT weekends; nor on ex-9690 kHz

No, should work over totally-insolated daypath, if not later into the
night. But only signal on 16m is JBA 17630 kHz CRI Bamako Mali. I check
various remotes: at 1533 UT, Maine is getting zero on 17855 & 9690 kHz;

USA    World Harvest Radio short wave no more ?

All short wave schedules and reference to World Harvest Radio have
now been deleted from the "Family Broadcasting Corporation" web site.

But there are links to World Harvest Television as well as to "Real Family
TV" and the other domestic US radio stations run by FBC.

However, I found a web page with a donation form for World Harvest Radio
short wave. I guess they forgot to remove this.

AS I had noted 5920 and 7385 vacant last night. Just in case, FCC A-21
<http://hfcc.org/data/schedbyfmo.php?seas=A21&fmorueC>

still has 50 LeSea entries. Search that and highlight all for further
frequencies to check. Of course the registrations already far exceeded
axual usage. Perhaps they have had it with SW even before the sale to WBCQ

USA   WMLK update WMLK Radio project is progressing nicely! This picture
shows a truckload of vacuum tubes from the BBC [Brown Boveri & Cie, Made
in Switzerland] shortwave unit that was severely damaged in the fire
[in 2017].

These tubes were in a separate room and were spared any damage. We are
sending these to a tube rebuilding company for evaluation and sale. We
will receive some cash for these tubes and it will be placed into the WMLK
Radio project for upkeep and maintenance. We are also now waiting for the
new Tx to be shipped from Europe. We are hoping to receive the new unit
around Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread.

The old Tx building that was condemned because of the fire, is being
gutted by the demolition expert that we have contracted to demolish and
remove the old Tx building. Salvageable items are being removed by WMLK
Radio staff for future use.

The new electrical connections supplied by our local power company has
been approved for the new building and new TX set. Everything is moving
along according to plan and purpose, Praise Almighty Yahweh! Thank you
everyone for your prayers and financial support!

VATICAN STATE   Vatican Radio Schedule in Russian (A-21).

Vatican News, excluding broadcast at 9 hrs 35 minutes, which is broadcast
on the first channel. Our programs can also listen to the recording:

USA   Brother Stair sk.

dies/
(Dan Robinson-CA-USA, wor April 4)

7730 kHz, April 5 at 0100 UT, right after World of Radio on WRMI,
Overcomer Ministry announces death of Brother Stair on April 3.

It's also on TOM website, and we have stories from Charleston TV
stations, forwarded by several DXers:

Ralph Stair, Colleton County preacher accused of sex crimes, passes
away by Matt Dillane Sunday, April 4th 2021

<https://abcnews4.com/news/crime-news/ralph-stair-colleton-county-
preacher-accused-of-sex-crimes-passes-away>

Colleton County pastor Ralph Stair dies

<https://www.live5news.com/2021/04/04/colleton-county-pastor-ralph-stair-
dies/>

How would you like your obit to be about your sex crimes?  Or merely
connected to some unknown county rather than worldwide impact as the
Last Day Prophet of God? I'm sure we've not heard the last of BS
most of his 24/7hrs/d stuff was already playbacks, sometimes decades old.

As long as deluded psychophants keep the $$$ flowing, he may live
forever like PPP, DGS and other broadcast gospel huxters. Stations
subsisting on that cash may be nervous and in for cutbacks - WRMI,
WWCR, WBCQ. TOM homepage lost its signature image of a boneyard years
ago.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, hcdx and wor April 4 - 5)

He was an older man, so it was inevitable. The question is how long will
his reruns continue on WRMI and elsewhere, and what happens when that
money runs out to those stations (especially WRMI and WBCQ)?
