BENIN   Trans World Radio is raising money for a second transmitter
at their West Africa medium wave station.

"Northern Nigeria is a spiritual battleground. For 10 years or more,
radical religious movements have ravaged the land with horrific acts of
violence. But there is hope in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We now have an
opportunity to take the good news farther into Nigeria and strengthen the
Church there.

We're launching a powerful new 200,000-watt transmitter broadcasting hope
into all of Nigeria, as well as parts of the neighboring countries of
Cameroon, Benin and Niger.

We have already begun by faith, with a prayer goal of launching
programming with the new transmitter by the end of 2019. The total cost of
the project is $1.3 million for installation, upgraded power and antenna,
and the first year of operations to reach all of Nigeria and beyond. As of
Jan. 1, 2019, the remaining need for the project is $750,000.

Would you consider giving generously to the Oasis Transmitter Project
today? Your gift will provide a clear radio signal to bring more
evangelism programs for the lost, more discipleship programs to strengthen
the Church, and more effective ministry than we've ever been able to bring
to this region of Africa before.

CHINA   Voice of the South China Sea in B-18.

Listening to service in Malay on 11955 kHz and 11700 kHz at 1320 UT via
Hong Kong SDR. Not // to webstream which might be FM service. I could hear
IDs for CRI only, although I am not sure what "Voice of the South China
Sea" would sound like.

I can hear the listed Chinese service on 11895 kHz via a Hong Kong SDR
at 0920 UT, but I cannot match it up with Voice of the South China Sea
stream or some other CNR services I tried at
<http://www.surfmusic.de/country/china.html>

The shortwave broadcasts of this CRI service, with the exception of
programs in Filipino, were believed to be future planning. But I have
received this schedule which states that Voice of the South China Sea is
on shortwave in various languages.

The English service is past my bedtime and I have only been able to check
it once. I only heard CRI programming at that time, but I only caught the
last 15 minutes. I am not sure about the other language services yet.

CSR 1945-1948 / CSSR 1949-1991 / German-Boehmen und Maehren 1942-1945, VOA

A LOOK BACK AT SIX DECADES OF VOA BROADCASTING IN CZECH LANGUAGE.
by Brian Kenety 27-02-2019

Voice of America (VOA), today the largest U.S. government-funded
international broadcaster, ceased its Czech language broadcasts exactly
15 years ago today, on 27 February 2004, shortly ahead of the country's
accession to the European Union. The move followed budget cuts by the U.S.
Congress and, the Cold War long over, a shift to "new audiences and new
priorities". We look back at the station's local legacy.

VOA began broadcasting in the Czech language in 1942, the year it was
established, and continued to do so throughout the Cold War, when it was
for the most part less subject to jamming than its more famous
counterpart, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

"The Voice", as the station is also known, was born during the propaganda
battles of World War II. It was continued during peacetime under a special
act to combat Soviet propaganda and operated by the U.S. State Department.

In its early days, the Czech broadcast was best known to listeners for
shows featuring the comedic acting duo of Jiri Voskovec and Jan Werich,
who broadcast to their occupied country via VOA. In a 1945 piece airing on
the anniversary of Czechoslovakia's foundation, Werich, then in New York,
addressed listeners at home:

"Greetings friends, this is Voskovec minus Werich, at my American
eyepiece. Today we're celebrating our October freedom. After the first
October 28, in 1918, today is the most beautiful of all the twenty-seven
October 28s since then. Not just because after so many years we are
celebrating it freely again - this year as well as our October freedom we
also have our May freedom."

RFE/RL concentrated on the internal affairs of the Soviet Union and its
satellites. VOA, as the official spokesman of the American government, was
somewhat less provocative - its mission being to inform the world about
Washington's take on events, not to present a direct alternative source.
And so it was tolerated. In April 1964, for example, while Czechoslovakia
discontinued its jamming of VOA and the BBC, it still blocked RFE
transmissions. After the Warsaw Pact invasion, the USSR resumed massive
jamming of both, until 1973.

This isn't to say VOA was apolitical. For example, journalist Ivan Medek,
based in Vienna, regularly delivered news about the Charter 77 protest
movement. And by the second half of the 1980s, VOA was more openly
political, and the most listened to foreign station broadcasting in Czech.

It got its first Prague correspondent, the Czech-speaking US journalist
Jolyon Naegele - who interviewed dissidents and Charter 77 signatories
such as Vaclav Havel and Jiri Dienstbier.

But it may have been "soft power" - programmes dedicated to books, film
and music - that drew most listeners in. Writer Josef ?kvorecky, for
example, hosted a show reviewing books and interpreting literature.
Sometimes, broadcasters even explained the English-language lyrics - in
real time - such as to Louis Armstrong's "It's a Wonderful World".

As noted by the Prague-based Institute for the Study of Totalitarian
Regimes, the broadcasts of both RFE/RL and VOA reflect various phases in
Western policy over the decades, from "containing Communism" to "the
emancipation of subjugated countries" to gradualism (efforts to support
natural liberalisation within Eastern Bloc states), detente (relaxation
of relations after accepting the fixed status of the other side),
the New Cold War, and its conclusion.

GERMANY EAST   In the footsteps of "Voice of Russia"

Transmitting Medium Wave Center Wachenbrunn, East Germany, Thuringia.

Standing in the 50th years. twentieth century. Until 1993,
transmissions were conducted with a power of 250 kW, and later the
power was reduced to 20 kW. There were also several low-power
transmitters.

Since 1988, the radio center began broadcasting "Moscow Radio", and
later the Voice of Russia at a frequency of 1323 kHz. For this
purpose, a directional antenna was used, consisting of four mast frame
masts 125.1 meters high, isolated from the ground with a triangular
cross section. These masts, which were locally called the "Russian
Quartet", were located 800 meters from other parts of the facility to
avoid unwanted interference. Used power: 1000 kW.

In 2002-2003 The transmission equipment for the Voice of Russia was
modernized. The transmitter efficiency reached 84%. There is evidence
that the transmitter has become a transistor, which at a very decent
radiation power is amazing.

Broadcasting of the German radio company (MDR) was discontinued on
June 30, 2011. On July 14, the "German" site of the center was
demolished, the work of the Voice of Russia continued normally.

In December 2012, the management of the Russian foreign broker
announced intentions to stop using the radio center for financial
reasons. "Voice of Russia" was silent from Vakhenbrunnen on December
31, 2012 at 23.00. September 19, 2013 equipment was demolished.
In the history of the radio center set point.

By the way, this was not the only reduction in radio broadcasts.
After a year and a half, Russia's oldest broadcaster was liquidated.

GERMANY   Radio Sputnik ceases broadcasting in Berlin and Brandenburg -
Germany states. The press service of Sputnik reported. Until recently,
the media company was broadcasting under the brand SNA Radio.

"SNA Radio (as part of the international news agency Sputnik) has to stop
broadcasting in Berlin and the neighboring federal state of Brandenburg
since March 1" the media company press service reported, noting that "this
step was dictated by the rulings of the regional courts." Earlier, a local
court confirmed the legality of the decision of the media office not to
issue a permanent license for digital broadcasting of the station, which
included in its programming grid content prepared by Sputnik, noted in
Sputnik.

The radio station was broadcast in Berlin and Brandenburg with a temporary
license in force. At the end of last year, the radio station sent a
request for a permanent license, but this request was rejected. The
regulator explained the refusal, in particular, by the fact that the radio
station financially depends on the "Russia Today" MIA, broadcasting its
content on its air about 12 hours a day.

"The authorities also did not accept the fact that the owner of the
frequencies does not control the content of the channel." Attempts to
challenge the ruling in the courts were not successful, - noted in the
media company. Radio SNA will continue to broadcast on the Internet, as
well as broadcast in Hesse state, Vienna (Austria) and Bern (Switzerland).

MADAGASCAR   What to do with Madagascar World Voice ?
With the impending closure of Sentech's Meyerton, South Africa,
transmitter site you would think that World Christian Broadcasting
(parent company of KNLS in Alaska and Madagascar World Voice)
would try to attract some of the broadcast hours that will be looking
for a new home after Meyerton closes.

They have their own transmitter site in Madagascar roughly 3o north
and 1o degree west of the former Radio Netherlands site at
Talata Volonondry. This would give them some well deserved financial
support so their proposed cuts in their own program hours could
be avoided. It's not rocket science, just basic economics.
(Mark Coady  <odxa -at- groups.io ng>  Febr 28)

There are many hours a day when MWV is not on the air at all. That would
make too much sense. But WCB has never engaged in relays one way or
the other with other broadcasters, likewise KNLS.

WCB could have been on air years earlier via Madagascar if they had been
willing to get time on Talata, but it was more important to do their
own thing with 100% control.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld / odxa Febr 28)

My understanding is that they are not allowed to sell time to
other parties at this facility.
(Hans Johnson-FL-USA, March 1)

MALI   CRI Africa relay via Bamako Mali is on air again.

{maybe the Chinese technicians refurbished Bamako TX and antennas
in past months ?, wb}

Looks pretty much like a more or less thorough renovation,
including the installation of new transmitters:

MALI. Radio Mali, Bamako, was noted on 9635 kHz at 1110 UT on 3 Febr with
Malian kora music using a remote SDR in the Canary Islands. The signal and
audio modulation was surprisingly good, better than I have heard from Mali
for many years. The audio was cut at 1120 and the transmitter went off the
air shortly afterwards.
(Dave Kenny-UK, Febr BrDXC-UK  "Communication" printed magazine, dxld)

Both frequencies 5995 and 9635 kHz had been missing for months (gh, dxld)

And probably next 1930 UT in Portuguese and 2000-2127 UT in English on
11640 kHz, 2130-2227 UT in French, 2230-2357 UT in Chinese on 11975 kHz.
(Kai Ludwig-D, dxld March 3)

On Sat, 2 March, very good signal in Arabic at 1645 UT on 15125 kHz
probably via Bamako 085 degr. From 1700 UT on same 15125 kHz will be
in Swahili with different azimuth 111 deg.

From 1701 UT change frequency to 13645 kHz in Swahili, fair to good
signal, probably only one single tx is on air, instead of two.

From 1800 UT in Hausa on 11640 kHz, fair signal.
1830-1927 in Arabic on 11640, very good signal here
(Ivo Ivanov-BUL, hcdx & dxld via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews March 2)

11640 kHz  Thanks for the tip, in Arabic with world news at 1833 UT.
4 March via a KiwiSDR in South Africa. ID at 1835 UT.
(Hans Johnson-FL-USA, dxld March 4

MALI   13685, March 3 at 1509 UT, S5-S6 VP talk M&W conversation,
// about a second ahead of 15700 kHz CRI English via CUBA. BUT,
no 13685 kHz signal at 1536 UT. 13685 kHz has been scheduled as
CRI via Bamako, English at 14-16 UT, but this and all other
transmissions have been off the air for months.

Yesterday March 2, Ivo Ivanov reported some Bamako relays had
resumed, and then many others logged, but only one frequency /
transmitter at a time instead of two. Nothing audible here on
17630 kHz which would have been // 13685 kHz before 1600 UT, but even
if on, unlikely would propagate as nothing else audible on 16mb under
pathetic propagation conditions. 15125 kHz was first heard yesterday
during Arabic, but today at 1639 UT I have no signal there.
Now Ivo summarizes, but the resumption may well continue sporadic

MALTA   Radio Malta 999 kHz at reduced power, possible interruptions of
the transmissions in the next days.

Some shutdowns affected the 999 kHz of Radio Malta in the last hours, the
problems are this time due to some problems arose after the storm of bad
weather last weekend.

The transmitter is currently operating with 3 kW of power instead of the
5 kW used usually. David Mizzi told us that because of the work that will
be ongoing for a few days, more will be possible shutdowns, especially on
Monday 4 March. (tnx Giovanni Lorenzi)

Radio Malta article 999 kHz at reduced power, possible interruptions of

Radio Malta 999 kHz a potenza ridotta, possibili interruzioni delle

Alcuni spegnimenti hanno interessato i 999 kHz di Radio Malta nelle ultime

l'ondata di maltempo dello scorso fine settimana.

Il trasmettitore e al momento operativo con 3 kw di potenza al posto dei
5 kw utilizzati di solito. David Mizzi ci ha comunicato che a causa dei
lavori che saranno in corso ancora per qualche giorno, saranno possibili

MOROCCO/TANGIER  [and non] . TWR marks 65 years in ministry
Mission Network News By Beth Stolicker Febr 25, 2019

On Friday, Trans World Radio, who strives to share God's Word through
mixed media, marked 65 years in ministry. A 65-Year History:

TWR's first-ever broadcast aired from Tangier in Northern Africa on
February 22, 1954. In a press release, TWR says this first broadcast
reached across "the Strait of Gibraltar to Spain, where Protestants
were a vanishingly small minority" facing governmental bans on
evangelism and even discrimination.

Then, when Morocco gained its independence and Tangier was reunited
with the country, TWR was asked to leave. The organization moved to
Monte Carlo and shared a facility with Radio Monte Carlo. During the
day, Radio Monte Carlo when to work, and at night TWR took over. It
was here where TWR really began to have a global influence.

Ten years after the first broadcast, TWR was reaching most of Europe
and expanding further into the world. Through radio, the ministry
slipped into areas no Christian worker could, like the Iron Curtain.
Radio has a way of providing information regardless of governmental
regulations. It has been key in TWR sharing God's Word across the
globe, expanding to the ends of the earth.

Some clarification about TWR Tangier era.
In the 1950's there were three commercial broadcast stations licensed
by the International Zone of Tangier.

Those were (brand names) Radio Africa, Radio Tanger and Pan American [sic]
Radio. TWR (Voice of Tangier then) "hired airtime" from Radio Tanger.
The fourth broadcaster was VOA.

Morocco gained independence in 1956 and had then also control of Tangier.
The existing broadcasters were given time to operate until the
end of 1959. So, Voice of Tangier (TWR) stopped broadcasting
from Tangier in the end of 1959. As we all know, VOA was of course granted
permission to continue after that 1959 deadline.

U.K.  Radio host and journalist Seva Novgorodtsev about life on BBC Radio

Since the late 1970s, Seva Novgorodtsev has been "our voice in England."
His programs "Rock-sowing", "Swiveling" and "BibiSeva" were a window into
the world of rock music and a model of first-class radio journalism.
Although in 2015, Seva, who became a knight of the Order of the British
Empire, left his long-term post on the BBC, his works remain a living
history.

The radio legend will appear in the flesh at creative meetings on Febr 27
in the St. Petersburg Palace of Culture named after Gaza, on Febr 28
in the Moscow Central House of Artists and on March 2 in the Yekaterinburg
Yeltsin Center. In an interview with Max Hagen, Seva Novgorodtsev talks
about the specifics of working for the BBC, salutes John Peel and, of
course, recommends music ...

USA/HAWAII   Celebrating 100 years of WWV.

Welcome to the WWV Centennial Celebration!

We're glad you've joined us to help celebrate the World's oldest
continually broadcasting radio station, WWV, as it turns 100 this year.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Northern
Colorado Amateur Radio Club (NCARC) are working together to organize the
event.

NIST will focus on the plans for Tuesday, October 1, when they will host a
recognition ceremony and an open house at the radio station north of Fort
Collins.

NCARC will operate a special event amateur radio station, call sign
WW0WWV, on the WWV property starting September 28 and going 24-hours a day
through October 2. The goal is to make as many U.S. and world-wide
contacts during the 120-hour period as possible, using multiple bands and
multiple modes on at least 4 simultaneous transmitters. The effort will
require hundreds of volunteer operators.

The 100th anniversary is an occasion to celebrate radio and our
understanding of the EM spectrum, and an opportunity to help people
everywhere appreciate what radio does in their everyday lives.

Please check back here often for updates.
This website will have the most current news and information.

The following notes and summaries are in reverse chronological order,
newest near the top.

Korean Program_9985 kHz_1530 UT_Febr 23, 2019.
Correspondence Bill Harms to Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld March 2.

Hi Glenn, Now for the rest of the story. I reported the reception of RFA
in Korean on 9985 kHz on 23 February and got the first reply seen below.

I re-listened to the frequency and reported that I indeed hear them.
Ms. Ripley wrote back with the second reply. Hope this clears up things.
It looks like they are getting things back on line at some of
the transmitters. Bill

Hello Bill,
I was forwarded some updated information yesterday concerning a few
of the SAI sites are back up and running. I'm placing a QSL confirmation
card go out in today's mail.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Have a great weekend!

Korean Program_9985 kHz_1530 UTC_Febr 23, 2019

Good afternoon Bill Harms,
Greetings from all of us at Radio Free Asia.

It is a pleasure to receive your reception report.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your report of February 23 for
Korean program 9985 kHz at 1530 UT. Our Tinian and Saipan transmitter
sites went down on October 29th due to super typhoon Yutu, which affected
those two transmitter sites. At this time, there's no estimated date of
being back up and running.

So, it is possible you were able to monitor another station like Deutsche
Welle, BBC, or VOA. Do you have any further information to provide about
the report? If not, may we kindly ask you to submit a new reception
report?

By the way, you can always find our frequencies online at:
<http://www.rfa.org/english/about/help/frequencies.html>

We look forward to hearing from you again soon.
Best wishes from all of us at Radio Free Asia.

Hi Glenn, I thought the Korean service of RFA was supposed to be off the
air. I am hearing it loud and clear on 9985 kHz at 2100-2130 UT on three
SDRs located in Japan. Judging by the strength of the signal, I have to
wonder if the transmission isn't coming from NHK. The other frequencies
of 7485 kHz and 9860 kHz are dead, not even a carrier.

They have frequent IDs and the program was a special broadcast
of the Trump-Kim Summit Meeting in Vietnam. There is no doubt it is RFA.
(Bill Harms, Elkridge-ML-USA, dxld Febr 27)

RFA Korean was one of those services dispensed with on SW when NMI Saipan
& Tinian sites were destroyed. The schedule *was* per page 500 of WRTH
2019, which flagged all the SW frequencies as not operational due to
typhoon, and to be moved to other sites:

10-11 1566jej
15-17 9590s
15-19 1188seo 5885t 9985t
21-22 7485t 9860t 9985t

And nothing about this in the Updater.

Searching current Aoki has the same SW
info all x-ed out for same reason:
10-11 1566
15-17 9590s
15-19 1188 9985t 5885t
21-22 9985t 7485t 9860t

EiBi has deleted all RFA Korean listings on SW but retains Cheju Isl on
MW 1566 kHz at 10-11 and Seoul-KOR 1188 kHz at 15-17-19 UT.

IBB has not bothered to remove numerous TIN and SAI listings from the
latest HFCC as of today, including the above which had been off the
air since typhoon. In HFCC there is no distinxion between VOA and RFA.

There could well be more temporary RFA SW reactivations for the duration
of the "I love you" summit.

VOA Korean is quite a different matter, which has continued mostly
unscathed via Philippines or Thailand; the SW hours designed not to
conflict with RFA, i.e. 12-15 & 19-21 UT on other frequencies.

Horizontal log-periodic array
Log-periodic dipole arrays are tapered linear arrays of dipole elements of
varying lengths that operate over a wide frequency range.
Wide band operation is achieved by different groups of elements radiating
at different frequencies. The spacing between the elements is proportional
to their length and the system is fed using a transmission line.
As the frequency ratio varies, the elements that are at or near resonance,
couple energy from the transmission line.
The resulting radiation pattern is directional and has a broadly constant
radiation characteristic over the full operating frequency range.
