ANTARCTICA  [non, rather maritime connect Portugal, Madeira, Canaries,
Capo Verde, Antarctic station, Pt Stanley Malvinas Falkland Isl. ]

DP0POL/mm   EXPEDITION PROGRAMME  PS123 / Polarstern ship contact Dec 27.

Gerade in Radio DARC gemeldet:
14.238 kHz - plus 5 - 10 kHz input, DP0POL/mm,
die Station auf der Polarstern ist heute Sonntag um 16z Uhr auf 14.238 kHz
in SSB (USB) zugange.

Funk an Bord,
auch an Bord des FS Polarstern vor der portugiesischen Kueste haben wir
die Sendung "Gruss an Bord" des NDR zu Heiligabend auf 6080 und 6145 kHz
in hervorragender Qualitaet verfolgen und so auch die Gruesse der Kollegen
an uns empfangen koennen.

Wir haben einige Anfragen bekommen, ob das Schiff selbst auch mal auf
Kurzwelle zu hoeren ist. Auf den Amateurfunkbaendern sind wir zur Zeit
vor allen Dingen in Morsetelegraphie als DP0POL/mm aktiv.

Wer uns auch mal in Sprechfunk (SSB) hoeren moechten,
dem sei die morgige {Dec 27} Sendung von Radio DARC ans Herz gelegt.

Dort ist unter anderem die Polarforschung ein Thema, und es wird ein
Funk-Termin fuer die Hoerer von Radio DARC bekanntgegeben. Wir freuen uns
ueber Anrufe und Hoerberichte.

Viele Gruesse aus dem Atlantik,

Felix, z.Zt. an Bord von FS Polarstern (DBLK / DP0POL), Dec 26.

Liebe Hobbyfreunde!
Ist recht brauchbar ueber einen WebSDR in SW England zu hoeren.
Wer kennt die QSL-Info?

Danke fuer das grosse Interesse. Wir waren in Europa wohl recht brauchbar
zu hoeren. Es ist sicher nicht jeder Interessent zu einem Funkkontakt
gekommen, von den Hoerern gab es aber durchweg positive Rueckmeldungen.
Den Spass an der Sache konnten auch einzelne Stoerer auf unserer Sende-
frequenz uns nicht verderben.

Ueber Empfangsberichte freut sich unser

QSL-Manager DL5EBE
Dominik Weiel
Kirchweg 13
49356 Diepholz
Germany
(bitte mit Rueckporto / return postage oder ueber das QSL-Buero).

Die Neumayer-Station werden wir voraussichtlich am 18. Januar 2021
erreichen.
Viele Gruesse von Bord, Felix.

Thomas und Martina; {sowie Lother auch} hatten heute Kontakt auf 20m m mit
der Polarstern suedlich von EA8.

Mit dabei ist auch Theresa, DC1TH, war nicht am Mikro, aber im Interview
mit Rainer Englert auf Radio DARC.

Offenbar ist das Schiff auf der langen Reise in die Antarktis  ?!

Offenbar hat da jemand nicht "Radio DARC #306" gehoert ?! ;-)

Spass beiseite, ja, man ist in Richtung Neumayer III unterwegs.

AUSTRIA [ / GERMANY]  Reminder: today on 5960 kHz, 100 Years of Radio from
Funkerberg Koenigs Wusterhausen, SW via ORS Moosbrunn Austria on 5960 kHz.

A reminder, this special broadcast is scheduled today 1300-1400 UT on
5960 (via Moosbrunn), as well as locally on 810 kHz in Germany.

The website for the "100 Jahre Rundfunk" is:
<https://100jahrerundfunk.de/100-jahre-rundfunk/>

(it is also has an English language page) Dec 14.

The 5960 kHz shortwave frequency on 22nd December at 1300-1400 UT is via
Moosbrunn, Austria (100 kilowatts) re HFCC.org database.

There is a report on a visit to Koenigs-Wusterhausen museum and trans-
mitter site following the EDXC conference in Germany in 2012 on the BrDXC
website at:

<http://bdxc.org.uk/edxc12konigs.pdf>

- which includes the history of the site. This extract about the broadcast
on 22nd December 1920:

"After WW1, the radio station was taken over by the German Imperial Post
in 1919, for the transmission of commercial messages. On 22 December 1920
however, a Christmas concert of music was broadcast for the first time,
the brain child of Hans Bredow (who is considered the "Father of German
Radio"). The broadcasts, on 2700 metres longwave, resulted in letters from
listeners in England, Holland, Luxembourg and the Nordic countries, but
none from Germany, where radio listening was forbidden."
(Alan Pennington-UK, BrDXC-UK newsgroup Dec 14 / 22)

On the 22th December from 13 UTC to 14 UT will be a transmission on
MW 810 kHz* from Koenigs-Wusterhausen in Germany. As I know they will use
a T-antenna from freestanding towers, not the big mast.

<https://www.senderfotos.de/wp-
content/gallery/koenigs_wusterhausen/20120317_koenigswusterhausen_07.jpg>

The big mast contains a wire antenna for 177 kHz and was the backup of
Zehlendorf.

<https://www.senderfotos.de/senderfotos-national/brandenburg/konigs-
wusterhausen/>

It can also be heard on shortwave 5960 kHz.
I don't know anything about the power.
(Marco 2020-12-13; via Mike Terry-UK, BrDXC-UK newsgroup Dec 14)

Re:  100 Jahre Rundfunk (heute/today Dec 22)

I used the University Enschede Twente SDR rx to have a listen on both 810
kHz and 5960 kHz. Only BBC Radio Scotland heard on 810 kHz with perhaps a
weaker station underneath. 5960 kHz had a strong signal. However, both
frequencies had periodic pulse interference. This could have been a
receiver issue. There were over 900 users of the receiver at this time,
way above the typical number.

I used the U. Twente SDR receiver to have a listen on both 810 and
5960 kHz. Only BBC Radio Scotland heard on 810 kHz with perhaps a
weaker station underneath.

Here is the T-antenna for 810 kHz from a different perspective:

<https://100jahrerundfunk.de/weihnachtskonzert>

"... Lokal auf Mittelwelle 810 kHz - etwa 15 Kilometer im Umkreis des
Funkerberges"

"= Locally on medium wave 810 kHz - approximately 10 miles around the
"FUNKERBERG" [ ~ "Radio operator mountain"]

The LPAM transmitter on 810 KHz only has a nominal transmitter power
of 9 watts. Because from 10 watts upwards you need a so-called
"location certificate" because of the RF radiation, and that costs too
much for a small museum radio.

FRANCE/FINLAND   Re:  Wed and Sat 17545 kHz to Africa, 15.30-16.00 UT

Only "E" still exists {formerly 16 x txs, wb.}, the even older antennas
had been removed to clear the space for the 16{sic rather 12x, wb.} new
transmitter / antenna combinations when they have been built. It has
been repeatedly mentioned that the transmitters of these 16{12} new units
allow only 250 kW as reduced power option in routine operations.

I think 17545 kHz is specified as using antenna type "#227" rather than
"#217"?  This points at the old curtain antennas, too.

When the shortwave operations at Pori-Preiviiki Finland ceased it had been
reported that the transmitters have been taken away to Issoudun. So it
appears that these 150 kW transmissions are being run with one of the
ex-Pori 250 kW ABB/BBC transmitters. At least this appears to be more
likely than one of the meanwhile almost 50 years old 500 kW beasts.

Just speculation of course. No real information whatsoever about the state
of TDF shortwave operations surfaced anymore since ten years or so...

FRANCE/BULGARIA{?}  [to ERITREA ]  17545V kHz, Sat Dec 19 at 1535 UT,
presumed Bayto Yaikl is VP S7-S9, but with BFO can tell the frequency is
cycling up and down as usual. At one point I catch it on 17545.060 kHz.
This is Wed & Sat only.

Registered by RMI FMO broker in HFCC as Issoudun, FRANCE site, but this
strange behaviour brings that into question. A previous inquiry to Jeff
White got no answer as to the correct transmitter site.

Wolfgang Bueschel also heard it today and speculates that it's really
renting an old Soviet-era Kostinbrod, Bulgaria unit. Ivo Ivanov ought to
be able to discern whether it's his local transmitter, e.g. by hearing a
second harmonic on groundwave, which would be 35090VV.

The same applies to the next RMI transmission after 1600 UT daily on
15285V kHz, R. Manara International which I previously caught wobbling
likewise; and maybe to the next2 one, 1700 UT on 13660 kHz, Alameda Bible
Fellowship, per NDXC on Mon & Fri only - need to check whether that one
vary the same way.

HFCC shows that on days 135, meaning Sun/Tue/Thu, but surely a mistake for
246 Mon/Wed/Fri. The latter two second harmonix would be 30570VV, 27320VV.

Kai Ludwig speculates it could be Issoudun but via old Pori-FIN trans-
mitter moved in  {into TDF Issoudun section-E curtain mast area, wb.};

GERMANY   CDU will Reform des oeffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunks.

Nach dem vorlaeufigen Stopp fuer die Erhoehung des Rundfunkbeitrags werden
laut einem Medienbericht innerhalb der CDU die Stimmen noch einmal lauter,
die eine radikale Abkehr vom aktuellen System des oeffentlich-rechtlichen
Rundfunks fordern.

In einer internen Diskussionsgrundlage der Mittelstands- und Wirtschafts-
union (MIT) von CDU und CSU schlagen die Autoren laut einem Bericht der
"Welt am Sonntag" vor, saemtliche Unterhaltungsformate in ARD, ZDF und
Deutschlandradio zu streichen.

Sportberichterstattung solle zudem deutlich eingeschraenkt werden.
Die Sender sollten ausserdem fusionieren, so dass nur noch eine Anstalt am
Ende uebrig bleiben wuerde.

Die CDU-Vorschlaege wuerden quasi ein Ende der foederalen Struktur bei der
ARD bedeuten. Sollten solche Plaene umgesetzt werden, wuerden zahlreiche
Mitarbeiter bei den Sendern ihre Jobs verlieren.

GERMANY   WDR Zeit Zeichen am 24. Dec 2020.
Servus, ich wollte die Weihnachtsruhe bzw. den Genuss der neuzeitlichen
NDR Hamburg "Gruss an Bord-Sendung" nicht stoeren,aber ein rundfunk-
historisches interessantes Zeit Zeichen war im WDR Radio3 am 24. Dec. ein
paarmal zu hoeren.

24. Dezember 1940 - Die erste Weihnachtsringsendung wird im Rundfunk
ausgestrahlt - Von Martina Meissner,
Propagandaminister Joseph Goebbels hatte fuer das Weihnachtsprogramm 1940
angewiesen, dass der Rundfunk fuer die Volksgenossen "das Gefuehl des
gemeinsamen Erlebens der Feiertage ohne Ruehrseligkeit" vermitteln sollte.

Unter dem Titel: "Deutsche Weihnacht 1940 - 90 Millionen feiern gemeinsam
-
40 Mikrophone verbinden Front und Heimat" wurde die erste Weihnachtsring-
sendung am 24. Dezember 1940 von 16.00 bis 17.00 Uhr ausgestrahlt.

Die Sendung war eine Mischung aus Kriegspropaganda, NS-Ideologie und
weihnachtlichem Brauchtum. Auf dem Programm standen unter anderem Gruesse
von Soldaten an ihre Angehoerigen, Gespraeche mit einem deutschen
Zerstoerer im Atlantik und Berichte wie "Die Kohlengruben in Ost-Ober-
schlesien gehoeren wieder zu Deutschland".

Joseph Goebbels schrieb spaeter, dass die Weihnachtsringsendungen, die von
1940 bis 1943 jeweils an Heiligabend ausgestrahlt wurden, "wunderbar und
ergreifend" gewesen sind.

GREECE   Open carrier / dead air on 9420 kHz December 21, 22, 23.

Are back on the air again. Had me worried - I thought this was another SW
broadcaster consigned to history. I heard them again on 22 Dec from around
0730 UT until sign off at 0900 UT on their usual 9420 kHz with talk
programming in Greek. Hopefully they will be on again tonight. I listened
for them yesterday {Dec 21} evening around 1900 UT but heard nothing.

The ERT World Web site (Foni tis Elladas) still lists the inactive 11645
kHz for Central & South Africa, 9935 kHz for Europe & Central America,
as well as on air 9420 kHz for Europe & North America. No times given.

I wonder what has happened to the 2 x 100kW Marconi transmitters at Avlis,
not forgetting the remaining 4 x 250 kW which were donated by the
IBB US government from the RFE/RL Gloria, Portugal site back in 1997 year
but never installed. The latter were probably sold for scrap. I can't
imagine they are still lying around after all this time.

The antenna set up at Avlis is very impressive, covering a huge area.
There are 2 log periodics in addition to the curtain arrays, which seem to
be mostly single band, bi-directional and arranged in 3 lines.
The antennas cover frequencies as high as 26 MHz.

I believe that the single {ex US} 250 kW unit (working at 170 kW
{lowered one third to fit the antenna matching, wb.} )
can only be connected to the 323 degree antenna.

Google Earth shows the site very well at
<https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@38.3904139,23.6086517,3314m/data=!3m1!1e3>

By clicking on "Imagery" there are several still pictures of the antennas,
the station building and the antenna switching matrix.
On the date the pictures were taken, the site had a rather uncared for
appearance.

Alan Holder, G4ZBH
Isle of Wight, U.K. (Dec 23)

Many thanks for the archive info. Wolfie. I think I have the article
written by John Babbis in one of my files here.

I remember those good old days with the 50 minute broadcasts directed to
different target areas (and 10 minute breaks for tx/antenna changes).
I miss the Greek Radio newcasts in English. Now we only have the English
page on the Web site for all the latest news from Greece.

I remember even further back in time before 1972 (when the Avlis site was
contructed). In the 1960s, they had two low powered transmitterson fixed
frequencies with 7.5 kW on 15345 kHz and 5 kW on 11720 kHz. I do not know
what types of antennas were in use then {I guess, horizontal rhombics were
in use, wb.}. I have a QSL for 15345 kHz in my collection. I remember how
hard it was to get programme details for my report because we had
Radio Liberty + severe jamming always on 15340 kHz.

I remember the ERT units at Thessaloniki with the regional programme.
They used one or two frequencies in the 15005-15100 kHz range, allocated
for aircraft communications (but so did BBC on 15070 kHz for many years!)

VoA Munich on 3980 kHz was only broadcasting with 8 kW in the last few
years before 3980 kHz was transferred to Biblis with 100 kW, when
Ismaning closed down. The 8 kW was an old Gates transmitter I think.
It was never easy {in U.K. / Channel Isl, wb.} to receive this transmitter
here, with Switzerland on 3985 kHz.

Since you are interested in the broadcasters technical equipment, I found
this document from FCC in the U.S. It is interesting because it is listing
all the transmitters at the WBCQ station in Monticello Maine.

The new 500 kW Continental unit fis shown as Model 420 "Custom build".
Strangely, the single Thales Ampegon rotatable antenna is listed 22 times
(every time for the different azimuths). The TCI Log Periodic is used on
7490 kHz. The document does not say which antennas they have for 6160 kHz,
5130 and 3265 kHz. When I contact the station again, I will ask them to
give me the details. - Merry Christmas and hoping for a better 2021.

In the 1960s Greece National Radio also used the typical US Made Collins
35 kW shortwave units at Thessaloniki, on the location of Voice of

ITALY/AUSTRIA   Suedtirol: Zwei weitere DAB+ Multiplexe am Huehnerspiel
in Betrieb.

Die Rundfunk Anstalt Suedtirol (RAS) hat am Huehnerspiel die neue DAB+
Sendeanlage mit den drei Sendebloecken 10B, 10C und 10D in Betrieb
genommen. Neben den beiden RAS-Muxen mit zugelieferten, oeffentlich-
rechtlichen Sendern aus Deutschland, Oesterreich und der Schweiz wird nun
auch das Bouquet DABMEDIA mit 13 Privatradios aus Suedtirol verbreitet.

Vom fast 2800 Meter hohen Senderstandort Huehnerspiel werden die Gebiete
Brenner, Pflersch, Jaufental und das nordtiroler Wipptal bis Innsbruck
besser versorgt. Ueber die drei Sendebloecke werden insgesamt
35 Hoerfunkprogramme ausgestrahlt.

Bemerkenswert: Erstmals sind die Programme des bisher gegenueber DAB+
kritisch eingestellten ORF von einer Menge Hoerer im Bundesland Tirol
digital-terrestrisch zu empfangen. So ist vielerorts in der Landeshaupt-
stadt Innsbruck ein Indoor-Empfang der RAS-Muxe moeglich, in denen unter
anderem die ORF_Programme rebroadcastst werden. In Innsbruck sind -
zusammen mit dem oesterreichweiten Multiplex - nun 46 Hoerfunkprogramme
ueber DAB+ zu hoeren.

Zuvor waren die ORF-Programme bereits in Teilen Osttirols ueber DAB+ zu
hoeren - im Drautal von der italienischen Grenze bis Lienz. Auch hierfuer
sind Sender der RAS in Suedtirol verantwortlich.

KOREA REP OF     KBS World Radio English Service announcement.

Cancellation of Programs.

We have recently learned that, unfortunately, one of the team members at
KBS WORLD Radio's English Service has tested positive for COVID-19.

In order to prevent the spread of infection, KBS WORLD Radio has taken
the preemptive measure of suspending all production of the programs
Korea24 and K-POP Connection.

Korea24: From December 28 to December 31, Korea24 will be replaced by
reruns of previous KBS WORLD Radio special programs. On January 1, a
special program marking the new year will be broadcast. Regular Korea24
programming will resume on January 4, 2021.

K-POP Connection: K-POP Connection will air reruns of previous episodes
from December 29, 2020 to January 7, 2021, except for January 1, when a
pre-recorded new-year special episode will air. Regular programming will
resume on January 8, 2021.

The English Service is striving for the safe and quick normalization of
all production. We ask for our listeners' understanding about this
inconvenience.

KOREA REP OF (SOUTH)  {some insights into another world for European DX
ears and eyes. wb. }

Some updates on the South Korean MW scene by Chris Kadlec:

630 KBS 1 Radio Suncheon is off the air. Transmission was scheduled to
cease for 6 months starting on May 23rd, 2020, but as of November 23rd,
the station remains off the air with no word when/if it will resume
broadcasting.

810 MBC Daegu transmission has been temporarily suspended as of Febr 1,
2020. It is off the air with no further details.

990 Changwon (MBC Gyeongnam) was taken off the air due to a new develop-
ment taking over its tower site. It was scheduled to go back on the air by
July 2018 in the Buk-myeon area (rural county to the north). As of last
month, correspondence to MBC Gyeongnam has given no answer as to when this
station will return or if it will be rebuilt. It is currently off the air.

1134 Seoul KBS 3R has been off the air since September 15th for replacing
transmitting equipment. It was scheduled to go back on the air Dec 4th.
As of the 5th, it has been confirmed that the station is still not on the
air.

1188 FEBC moved to a new tower site in the Daebu-do coastal area of
suburban Ansan from Siheung, turning on the new facilities on October 12,
2020. They have a nice new building beside it as well. The towers are
located at  37 13 14.3 N  126 33 29.1 E
in an area just west of the old Universal Studios theme park site.

1332 MBC Chungju went off the air on May 1, 2020. The station is scheduled
to be off the air for one year and return on May 1, 2021.

1350 MBC Samcheok was taken off the air in 2018 due to a new development
taking over its tower site. It moved up the road and constructed a new
building and new mast at  37 27 43.7 N  129 08 26.8 E  and has been on the
air for some time (perhaps seamlessly).

1440 Pyeongtaek (Camp Humphreys) AFN is - as already known - broadcasting
at 5 kW, confirmed by the fact that it is using the old AFN Yongsan 5 kW
transmitter that previously operated on 1530 kHz. All previously-used
equipment from US Forces Area I (Seoul and north) was moved to the new
military HQ at Camp Humphreys, with Camp Casey (1197 kHz) shutting down
February 15, 2018 (already widely reported) while staying on the air in
Kunsan and Daegu, leaving no remaining AFN stations in the suburbs between
Seoul and the border.

MYANMAR  checked Myanmar Radio SW last night, used the remote Perseus unit
at New Delhi India.

Myanmar on shortwave, tiny signals these days. My strong assumption
regarding the Myanmar signal strength these days is, that only part in use
of the former power 50 kW of 2010 year, for example now remaining 10 or
25 kilowatts, instead of 50 kW, is in use.

The radio signals from Nay Pyi Daw 5915 kHz
and Pyin U Lwin 6165 kHz are that 'thin' these days.

In Delhi India remote Perseus server access:
5914.982  MR  Nay Pyi Daw, S=4-5 poor -91.7dBm at 01.20 UT on Dec 20.
Similar tiny strength too on
6164.994 kHz from Pyin U Lwin at 01.24 UT on Dec 20.

Better 50 kW signal noted on MR broadcast center of British colonial era,
site at Yegu / Yangoon former capital, on 5985 kHz in UT afternoon, and
9730 kHz at 01.30-11.30 UT likely scheduled.

5985 kHz channel suffer by strong co-channel QRM of CRI Swahili African
sce powerhouse in B-season every year.

Hi Wolfie, Thanks for your observations!
Yes indeed, 5985 kHz (via Yangon) is the only Myanmar station seemingly
with full power and well heard at my QTH. Dec 22, at 1327 UT; my audio
with pop music for one minute, then singing station song/jingle with
three different "kilohertz" and ". .? . town Radio" and their usual BoH
format (local Myanmar ToH), at  <http://bit.ly/37ENFeC>

In the past, I was normally able to hear 9730 kHz, signing off at 1130 UT,
but recently not heard, so an obvious change on their part.
Thanks again. Happy Holidays!!

NEW ZEALAND   New SDR in Mangawhai - the SDR that was in Blenheim at
Bill Marsh's QTH ie being relocated to Tern Point in Mangawhai.

It has not been the great success that we, and Bill in particular, had
hoped. The Kiwi SDR is a low end receiver and thus is more susceptible to
local interference. In suburban Blenheim there is enough noise to spoil
the special nature of this receiver. It is hoped that at Tern Point, with
a relatively noise free environment, we may enjoy excellent reception of
those North American AM signals and SW in general. With the closure of the
Russell SDR later this year this will be the main northern online receiver

NEW ZEALAND/VANUATU    Acc to the DRM schedule RNZ Pacific is supposed to
be on air in digital mode on 11690 kHz. There is a signal there but no
audio. Tuning to 11725 kHz I find RNZ Pacific in AM mode relaying
RNZ National which is where they are supposed to be on a Saturday (Sunday
if they're using UTC time and date) I thought they were using only one
transmitter. Current time in 1954 UTC.
(Via dxdialog 19 Dec. Paul Rawdon; NZL DX Times, NZRDXL, Dec 29)

Reply from Adrian Sainsbury 'RNZ Pacific'.

During a serious Cyclone as happened this week is good reason to bring on
the old AM transmitter to cover the period when DRM service is also
required. Rangitaiki transmission base still hosts two 100 kW txs.

TX1 circa 1990 is mainly used for backup when TX2 is unwell. The DRM
service is scheduled only when individual stations use the platform to
relay RNZ Pacific News bulletins.

{VANUATU}   On another matter VBTC Port Vila HF services remain off air
awaiting spare parts. Covid related issues will certainly add to the delay
in repairs being carried out by overseas technical staff.

SLOVAK REPUBLIC   95 Years of Radio in SLOVAKIA, 22 Dec 2020.
95 Jahre Rundfunk in der Slowakei, 22 Dec 2020.

Dobry Den !   Guten Tag !
auch der slowakische Rundfunk feiert (Tagesthema - RSI Bratislava 21. Dec)
und Deutschland half kraeftig mit beim Aufbau:

Die Geschichte der ersten Rundfunksendung in der Slowakei begann vor
95 Jahren in der Naehe von Kosice. Vom 20. bis 22. Dezember 1925 haben
Techniker der Post im Dorf Haniska die ersten erfolgreichen Versuche
einer Rundfunkuebertragung in der Slowakei unternommen.

In der Ostslowakei gab es zu jener Zeit keine Radiostation. Die Techniker
der Post und Telegraphie in Kosice adaptierten deshalb einen Sender, der
zur Steuerung des Flugbetriebs auf der Linie Prag - Kosice - Moskau
vorgesehen war, fuer die Uebertragung von Rundfunksignalen. Ueber-
lieferungen der direkten Teilnehmer der ersten Versuchssendung zufolge
habe man damals einen deutschen Sender der Marke Telefunken mit einer
Leistung von 10 KW verwendet.

Dieser war eine sehr einfache Einrichtung, daher hatten die Techniker
keine grossen Schwierigkeiten, ihn zu adaptieren. Den Sender erhielt die
Tschechoslowakei von Deutschland im Rahmen der Entschaedigungen nach dem
Ersten Weltkrieg. Er wurde sogar von Monteuren aus Berlin aufgebaut, die
eigens dafuer nach Haniska gekommen waren.

Die Versuchssendung wurde schliesslich um 9.30 Uhr auf der Frequenz von
Budapest ausgestrahlt. Wie die damalige Presse berichtete, konnte man
schwach klingende Musik hoeren, die ab und zu durch die Meldungen "Hallo,
Radio Kosice - Haniska" unterbrochen wurde. Die Sendung war technisch
gesehen sehr schwach - man konnte etwa kaum unterscheiden, ob es sich um
eine Frauen- oder Maennerstimme handelt. In dem Aether erklang die
Operette "Fledermaus" von Johann Strauss sowie die Arien aus der Oper "Die
lustigen Weiber von Windsor".

Das waren die allerersten Anfaenge einer Radiosendung in der Slowakei.
1926 startete schliesslich mit dem "Radiojournal" der regelmaessige Sende-
betrieb in Bratislava und im darauffolgenden Jahr auch in Kosice.

Sri Lanka to sell airtime on ex-DW relay station to Encompass Digital
Media

Sri Lanka has agreed to sell airtime on a former Deutsche Welle relay
station in Trincomallee in the North East of the island to UK based
Encompass Digital Media Services, London.

Germany's DW built the relay station in Sri Lanka in 1980 for mainly for
international shortwave (HF) broadcasting. It also has a medium wave
transmitter on 1548 kHz for South Asia.

been sitting in a crate for ten years on 530 kHz and to reactivate the old
1570 kHz with 50 kW. Tower will be relocated to Providenciales, the
westernmost island in the Turks. Better power and air transportation.
