ANTARCTICA [NON !]  corrected version:

Tuesday 21 June, 2132-2200 UTC.
BBC World Service annual mid-winter broadcast to Antarctica for British
Antarctic Survey staff working on midwinter's day in Antarctica.

The British Antarctic Survey's Midwinter broadcast to staff based in
Antarctica will be going ahead as usual on {Tuesday} 21 June.

Frequencies unconfirmed as we go to press, last year's broadcast was
carried from 2130-2200 UT on 6035-dha 6170-asc 7305-wof and 9505-wof.

A slightly shorter version is likely to be aired from 2132-2200 UT on some
BBCWS streams including via DAB in the UK. The only regular BBCWS English
SW frequencies on the air at this time are 11810-wof and 12095-asc to West
Africa but it's not currently shown in the WS schedule to Africa.

In an email to Alan Pennington on 26 April, Emily Neville, Communications
and Engagement Manager with the British Antarctic Survey confirms that the
broadcast will go ahead this year. Richard Hollingham at Boffin Media who
produce the show also confirmed there will be a broadcast again. Details
will be circulated on the BrDXC-News U.K. list as soon as we have them.

Re: Scheduled ENC Woofferton frequencies available June 14 tests.
And the transmitter cut at 21:45 UT, so nothing special regarding the
upcoming "real" BBC Antarctic program next week, June 21.

At exactly 21:30:00 UT, 12065 kHz from ENC Woofferton came on at good
level with BBC news. No announcement as to the purpose of the test.
I wasn't expecting to hear 7305 or 6035 kHz, and sure enough, not a trace
from my Masset KiwiSDR. A lot of summer static noted across the bands ...
at least I hope it's nothing local!
(Walt Salmaniw-BC-CAN, wor June 14 - 15)

Re:  BBC Antarctic Mid-Winter broadcast test frequencies.

Reception in Marham, Norfolk, showed considerable variation with only
7305kHz being easy to hear. I rotated the frequencies between a
Tecsun PL-660 and an XHData on the same external long wire, a DX-R8 on a
discone and an ATS-803A on a loft random length wire with no marked
difference. 7305 kHz 444; 6035 kHz 231; 9505 kHz 333 and 12065 kHz 131.

2022) at 2130-2145 UT. The frequencies are the same as they were on
previous Tuesday June 14:

ASC    7305 kHz

Re: Scheduled ENC Woofferton frequencies available June 14 tests.

Yes, they never make special announcements during the test transmissions;
they just air whatever is currently going out on the BBC WS.
Here in N_B-CAN, the best signal was 12065 kHz, which was quite good, even
excellent, followed by 9505 kHz a bit weaker and 7305 kHz even weaker but
quite readable. No noticeable QRM. But some 10 or 20 minutes after the end
of the test, there was some digital utility QRM on 12065 kHz. 6035 kHz was
not heard.

Test transmisssion outlets checked on various remote SDR's at Sao Paulo

at New York state east coast of USA;
and at Athens Greece in southern Europe.

Compared to previous season years, reception in Johannesbourg RSA
was much limited down, except the balcony Ascension Island nearby signal.

In the overall view of the test transmissions, I was very surprised to
observe the negative transmission strength signal in the 31 metre band in
Brazil as well as in South Africa targets.

The same technical parameters were used on 9505 kHz as on 12065 kHz to-
night from Woofferton England site, see hfcc.org database entries.

wb to dp (Dave Passey M0MYA):
Dave, what's going on with the WOF antenna on 9505 kHz channel tonight?
Only sunspots/propagation matter ?

7305 and 12065 kHz channels will provide the best signal on Tuesday
in British Antarctica target.

{U.K.}  12065 kHz  via ENC Woofferton, 2130z, June 14, poor signal (S-3 to
S-5) for the test transmission for the Antarctic mid winter broadcast
scheduled for June 21. The lower test frequency from Woofferton (9505 kHz)
was not audible here in central Texas with the full daylight path and the
frequencies from ASC (7305 kHz) and DHA (6035 kHz) would also be too low
to propagate at this time of day.

However all three sites to Antarctica are full darkness. Central Texas is
112deg off the beam from Woofferton which is using an array #618 EHRS
4/4/1.0 aimed at 182degr (170 + 12 of slew).

The actual azimuth from Woofferton to the Halley VI research station is
187degr. What's puzzling to me is that there should be no one there. Press
reports seem to suggest that the Halley VI research station is unmanned in
the Southern winter.

AUSTRIA   Der OE1 Service hat auf Anfrage eines Hoerers am 10. Mai 2022
den Stellenwert der Kurzwelle fuer den Oesterreichischen Rundfunk wie
folgt erlaeutert:

Die Ausweitung des Kurzwellenangebotes richtet sich in erster Linie an
Auslandsoesterreicher/innen und alle Deutschsprechenden im Ausland.

Des Weiteren ist ein Segment des "OE1 Mittagsjournal" in englischer
Sprache gehalten, die somit auch ein internationaleres Publikum ansprechen
kann. Die Erhaltung und der Ausbau eines Nachrichtenkanals auf Kurzwelle
ist OE1 also sehr wichtig, aber der ORF widmet sich in seiner Digita-
lisierungsoffensive mit dem alle Sender umfassenden ORF-Player auch einem
verstaerkten online Angebot, um so alle Zielgruppen erreichen zu koennen.

Ausserdem stehen via Kurzwelle die OE1-Radio-Journale auch dann noch zur
Verfuegung, wenn lokale Mobilfunknetze und sonstige mediale Infra-
strukturen nicht mehr funktionieren, weshalb eine weitere Erhaltung eines
sicheren Kurzwellenangebotes uns sehr wichtig ist.

DARC on F_B says this about the station:

"Uncensored radio for Russia.
New short wave program for Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.

Under the name "Radio Prawda dlja Rossii" started on the 09th April 2022 a
new radio program specially for Russia. The targets of the broadcast are
serious and uncensored reporting as well as unfiltered news for the
Russian population.

Due to the increasing state censorship and administrative restrictions on
the Internet as well as the satellite broadcasts in reporting about
Russia, this program will be broadcasted again on short-term. It is avai-
lable nationwide throughout Eastern Europe and Siberia.

This program was founded by engineers and journalists in collaboration
with radio stations, which in part come from Russia and Ukraine. The
journalists already have years of experience in renowned public broad-
casting agencies.

That's about. The 40-minute program in the journal format is produced
voluntarily in the spare time and is funded entirely from private dona-
tions. Although the first test broadcasts were only aired with low
broadcast performance and were little known so far, the editorial office
received a large number of feedback from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.

The desire was expressed to continue the broadcasts and please repeat it
several times. The radio station considers this as a clear signal for the
need for such uncensored news."

requests from radio listeners and includes them in the program. John
kindly answered the question about station-ID in pure Russian at the
beginning of the program:

"... At the beginning of each broadcast - it is my intention to air a
Station Identification in Russian as a token of appreciation for my liste-
ners in Russia !  Originally a Russian speaking listener in the United
States had recorded a Station Identification in Russian but several months
ago I heard from a kind listener (his name is Artem) in Russia who let me
know there were some grammatical issues with the original ID, he explained
that he works professionally as a translator and it would be his pleasure
to rerecord the ID for my broadcast. That is how the Station Identifica-
tion at the start of the program came to be ! ..."  Blog:

GREECE   Summarizing VoGreeces final week's transmission on shortwave.

VoGreece new schedule on 9420 is on 12-17 UT  Mon-Fri since April 2022.
Their previous schedule was between 19-07v UT. It is notified since then
with several extensions that after mid-June they will cease broadcasting
favoring stream shortwave listening, zl.

June 15th, this was the final extension day as noticed by the news.

This is the last week that VoGRC was aired in shortwaves on the usual
frequency 9420 kHz. I have made many checks this week locally in the
Mr Olympus with auxiliary checks via University Enschede-Twente in various
times. In short

11-12 June is Sat-Sun, no transmissions !
13 June Mon / not aired due to Public holiday of Pentecostal / Holy Spirit
        I disagree with their policy.
14 June didn't report but as per the Twente chart they were operating
        1210-1323 and 1407-1705 UT.

15 June Aired after 1236 UT. I made three checks this day locally and via
        Twente. Ended as usual at 1705 UT.
This was the final extension day as noticed by the news.

16+17 June no transmission via Twente "as expected".
Bye bye Voice of Greece.

KYRGYZ REPUBLIC   I inform you that soon TWR will be installing a new
second MW transmitter to update the existing one and thus be able to
expand its greater broadcasting capacity and with a strong signal directed
to the Persian-speaking region or countries which will include parts of
the Middle East, and from Central Asia with a total of six (6) daily
broadcasts in Farsi languages and others from the Persian world.

At the moment it is known that said transmitter was donated by someone,
but its operating power or frequency has not yet been revealed if it will
be 612 kHz or 1467 kHz. You would probably think of 612 kHz (Silk Road) as
having only 200 kW.

LATVIA    The National Electronic Media Council (NEPLP) banned the broad-
casting of all Russian TV channels in Latvia. The corresponding measure
will come into force on June 9 and will be valid until the end of the
special operation in Ukraine and the return of Crimea to its composition.

"NEPLP today decided to ban distribution in Latvia and remove from the
list of programs rebroadcast in Latvia 80 TV channels registered in
Russia, including TV "MIR" and "Arms" ... The programs will disappear from
the information space of Latvia on June 9," wrote the head NEPLP Ivars
Abolins on Twitter.

He also noted that NEPLP decided to issue a broadcasting permit to the
Dozhd TV channel (recognized in Russia as a foreign media agent), which
will be Latvian from June 9.

According to the LETA agency, E TV, Illusion+, Kino24, Mir TV, Hunting and
Fishing, Pepper and Russian Illusion were among the channels to stop
broadcasting.

The department explained that they imposed a ban on television broad-
casting thanks to a new form of law that provides for the shutdown of the
media of those countries that "threaten the territorial integrity and
independence." The decision does not say what exactly the threat is.

Earlier in Latvia, they called on the European Union to impose sanctions
against TV channels from the Russian Federation.

Scheduled is MWV, but confusing contradixions about programming. EiBi list
says it's 'African Pathways Radio', to South Asia. But why would they be
doing that, rather than KNLS Alaska English hour which is Asian-orientated
?  HFCC agrees it's on 40 degree beam for CIRAFs 41 & 42S South Asia,
altho bigsig here implies it's really aimed this away across Africa.

Aoki does not decide, just English from WCB; and BTW, V of Korea [North]
is also listed on 13760 kHz at 03-04 in Spanish. Bulgarian DX Blog for A22
season shows 03-04 UT on 13760 kHz as KNLS English at 40 degrees from MWV;
while English from APR follows at 04-05 UT on 11825 kHz, also well heard

PHILIPPINES   One of AP's historical reviews:

AWR Wavescan - The Second VOA Relay Station in the Philippine.

In our brief mini-series of topics here in Wavescan about the VOA Voice of
America radio stations in the Philippines, we have presented the story
about their first relay station, which began as a submarine operation
under the callsign KZSO which subsequently morphed into a land based sta-
tion as KZFM in Manila city. We move on now to the story of their second
relay station in the Philippines which was located in the regional city of
Malolos on Luzon Island. Let's go back to the beginning.

{... parts ...}

Mediumwave radio station KSAI was located on Saipan in a set of quonset
huts, which was also the location of the AFRS mediumwave station WXLD.
KSAI was on the air on Saipan until the middle of the year 1946, when,
 according to some reports, it was simply abandoned.

However, that is not the case. VOA documents show that the transmitter was
subsequently removed from Saipan and re-installed in the Philippines at a
new VOA transmitter site at Malolos. This now historic mediumwave trans-
mitter that had functioned under the callsigns KSL, KRHO and KSAI was
inaugurated at its new location as VOA Manila A on March 7, 1948. By now,
that 16 year old Western Electric 7A transmitter, still rated at 50 kW,
was noted on 920 kHz with programming directed towards Asia.

Malolos is almost a coastal city some 25 mile north of Manila, and it is
almost a suburb of MetroManila, with a population of 1 quarter million
inhabitants. Malolos is a city of tourist interest, particularly in regard
to its historic backgrounds.

An agreement between the Philippines and the United States for the estab-
lishment of a Voice of America relay station at Malolos was signed on
September 4, 1947. This new VOA station would be installed in a leased
building at the Bulacan Trade School, an open field area, together with
four subsidiary buildings.

A photograph of the main building as printed in the American radio journal
Radio News shows that one section of the main building had just a single
level, and another part was at two storeys. A shielded receiver station
was installed into a Quonset Hut on the same property.

Four radio transmitters were installed into that new VOA relay station,
together with a bevy of shortwave antennas:

The 50 kW MW transmitter previously on the air consecutively as KSL, KRHO
& KSAI

- Two RCA 50 kW SW transmitters Model No M17330A,
  serial numbers 524 & 527.

- Five SW rhombic antennas strung from four towers 75 ft tall.

- One MW system on Blaw Knox towers 250 ft tall.

The first test broadcasts on shortwave 11840 kHz were noted in Australia
on September 1, 1947, and regular programming began ten days later, on
September 11. The 50 kW mediumwave transmitter was activated on 920 kHz
during the following year on March 7, 1948. The programming feed was
generally a relay on shortwave from the Hawaiian VOA station KRHO.

At the same time as VOA was on the air from the new Malolos station, so
also was PBS, the Philippine Broadcasting System with its own programming.
The Malolos station was identified on air as KZFM for the PBS programming,
and as the Voice of America for VOA programming. On January 1 of the
following year (1949), the American callsign KZFM was amended to the new
Philippine sequence as DZFM.

The Malolos VOA relay station was planned for interim usage only, while
construction work at two new and very large relay stations in the
Philippines was underway at Poro and Tinang. The Poro station was acti-
vated in 1954, though Malolos was still retained for continued on air
service.

However, the VOA usage of the 50 kW mediumwave unit on 920 kHz was not
terminated until June 30, 1967, more than 10 years after the superpower
one megawatt transmitter at Poro was taken into service. Quite often both
mediumwave transmitters carried the same programming, though the 50 kW at
Malolos was intended for local coverage of the Philippines, and the one
megawatt at Poro was intended for international coverage into Asia.

When the new VOA relay station at Tinang was activated in 1969, the VOA
usage of the Malolos relay station was closed, and the station was taken
over completely by PBS under a new callsign DZRP.

Initially, a few QSL letters were sent out from the VOA relay station
itself in Malolos, though regular VOA QSL cards were readily available
from VOA headquarters in Washington DC. The interim and temporary VOA
Malolos was on the air for a period of 21 years, stretching from 1948 to
1969.

RUSSIA   St. Petersburg and the region.

The Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation is considering the
possibility of transferring part of the frequency resource assigned to it
to the Russian Railways (RZD), which will be able to use the transferred
frequencies to launch private corporate LTE networks (Private LTE - pLTE)
at large marshalling yards.

According to the Deputy General Director of the Research and Design
Institute of Informatization, Automation and Communications in Railway
Transport (NIIAS) Pavel Popov, the transfer of the frequency resource
assigned to the Ministry of Transport in the range of 300-400 MHz with a
bandwidth of 20 MHz is being discussed. "The indicated frequency resource
allows us to solve several problems in railway transport.

There are tasks of interval regulation, traffic control, unmanned traffic,
remote control by video monitoring. The number of tasks is growing. There
are documents that define the ways of using communication on the railway,
of which there are many and each has its own requirements for delay,
transmission, reliability, "Popov told Telesputnik on the sidelines of the
CIPR forum in Nizhny Novgorod ...

RUSSIA   Editor's news.

Since 2013 the RUSdx newsletter has a page and a member of many radio
groups dedicated to radio on  F_B  facebook.com. Due to the blocking of
Facebook in Russia, unfortunately, participation in the project became
more difficult. Therefore, before the onset of better times, the exchange
of news on facebook.com stops.

The EU imposed sanctions against the head of Roskomnadzor.

The European Union has included the head of Roskomnadzor Andrey Lipov on
the sanctions list. This is stated in the list of restrictions included in
the sixth package of sanctions against Russia and Belarus published in the
official journal of the EU.

The "reasons" column states that "Roskomnadzor is the central instrument
for exercising censorship and suppressing free media in Russia." Lipov, as
the head of the department, "is responsible for the decisions that led to
the censorship and closure of independent Russian media," the document
says.

Lipov was appointed head of Roskomnadzor in March 2020, replacing
Alexander Zharov at this post. Prior to that, Lipov headed the presiden-
tial administration for the development of information and communication
technologies and communications infrastructure, which, in particular, was
responsible for developing bills on the "sovereign Internet" and on limit-
ing the share of foreign participation in companies that own significant
Russian sites. He also worked in the department of state policy in the
field of informatization and information technology of the Ministry of
Telecom and Mass Communications (now the Ministry of Digital Development),
in particular, he was the deputy head of the development programs depart-
ment, the head of the information technology department, and also the de-
puty director of the department.

Roskomnadzor told RBC that the imposition of sanctions "will not affect
Lipov and the department in any way."

In the past two years, Roskomnadzor began to slow down the traffic of
foreign social networks, in particular Twitter, blocked the largest plat-
forms Instagram and Facebook (their owner, Meta, was recognized as extre-
mist and banned in Russia), as well as the websites of a number of Russian
media. Also, the implementation of the so-called landing law has begun,
according to which foreign IT companies with a daily audience of more than
500 thousand users are required to open a branch, an authorized legal en-
tity or a representative office in Russia.

The department explained the blocking of both social networks and the
media by the requirements of the Prosecutor General's Office and the cur-
rent legislation. For example, the former head of Roskomnadzor, Alexander
Zharov, spoke about restrictions on the dissemination of extremist infor-
mation: "Roskomnadzor, at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office,
is obliged to ensure the blocking of such resources and pages on social
networks and take measures to remove illegal information. And do it imme-
diately."

RUSSIA   Hackers hacked into the website of the Kommersant FM radio
station and included Ukrainian songs.

In the editorial office of the radio publication "Rise"
<https://pdmnews.ru/26880/>
they said that they were working on fixing the problem.

"About 10-15 minutes ago we were hacked. Not fixed yet, we are investigat-
ing this issue. It is not yet clear how this happened." After the Ukrai-
nian patriotic songs, the air on the radio station's website continued
with the composition of the group "Nogu Svelo", because of which the
soloist of the group Maxim Pokrovsky was brought under an administrative
case under the article on "discrediting the Armed Forces of the Russian

RUSSIA   The European Union is working on another package of sanctions
against Russia. One of its points may be a ban on the provision of cloud
services to Russian customers.

The representative of the EU noted that it would be difficult to implement
such a measure from the technical side, writes Reuters. It is difficult to
predict exactly how this will affect Russia, because the leading cloud
service providers in Europe are the American companies Amazon, Microsoft
and Google.

SWITZERLAND    Swiss lower chamber of parliament rejects delay to VHF
radio switch-off

The Swiss National Council, or lower house of the Federal Assembly, has
opposed a delay to the end of VHF audio broadcasting, according to the
CE Today portal. The Federal Council and the Council of States had sup-
ported keeping VHF radio until DAB uptake reaches 90 percent. The National
Council rejected the motion by 79 votes to 73, with 24, and the proposal
is now off the table.

The National Council Commission for Transport and Telecommunications found
that it was up to the radio sector rather than the federal government to
decide when to phase out VHF. A minority on the commission objected that
DAB reception is difficult in places such as emergency shelters. In Decem-
ber 2021, about 12 percent of Switzerland's listeners still used VHF ex-
clusive.

USA   WMLK Radio

Posted on their F_B yesterday, 11 June 2022. I found this post somewhat
surprising from a technical point of view.

Another productive day, praise Yahweh!
The engineers ran the transmitter up to 300 kW into the Test Load and con-
tinued to tune the set. Upon successful trials, they then increased the
output to 450 kW in order to stress every aspect of the equipment, running
it to 150% of optimum operating parameters. After repairs and adjustments
and verifying the efficacy of the system under 100% modulation, decided to
do on-air testing.

They tuned the set to 9275 kHz and then activated the antenna switch to
apply RF to the antenna using a 10k carrier tone. As we visually verified
the operation of the antenna the engineers came out and said it was broad-
casting at 60 kW (Which is the highest the original RCA transmitter trans-
mitted). They then came out and said they increased the power to to 175 kW
(Which is the highest the BBC transmitted). He then pushed the antenna to
300 kW, the rated output of the new transmitter. While we were talking
about how well everything was working, the engineer came out and said he
was pushing it as hard as he could, 450 kW at 100% modulation. He also
said that the antenna is super-stable at that power!

Next week we will be fine tuning the station and will be training. There
will be times that we will be on the air, either on 9275 or 15150 kHz, but
the times and duration will be sporadic.

We anticipate assuming a regular broadcast schedule on June 20.

We are so humbled, thankful and thrilled that Yahweh has brought us to
this point. Let our prayers unite that His will be done and that Yahshua
will return soon. On to the Kingdom!
