ASCENSION ISL/U.K.   Results of a monitoring project on
'Radio Dandal Kura International'; on 25 and 26 November 2017, via remote
SDR station on University Enschede Twente, Netherlands.

<http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/>

Radio Dandal Kura International (Maiduguri, Borno State) was confirmed
with the following schedule from Ascension and Woofferton (UK):

0500-0700  5960 (ASC 250 kW,  55 degr) good
0700-0800 13810 (WOF 300 kW, 165 degr) fair
1800-2100 12050 (ASC 250 kW,  65 degr) weak at 1800 UT,
          but improving and strong towards 2100 UT

The USAID-funded programme was started in 2015 by the experienced radio
organiser David Smith, who has led, inter alia, Radio Okapi (Congo-
Kinshasa) and Radio Bar-Kulan (Somalia). The broadcasts are destined for
the area around Lake Chad, where the terrorist militia Boko Haram
originated. Kanuri has around nine million native speakers, who appear to
be increasingly diverging in the region.

The shortwave signal is significantly delayed compared to the
online stream at   <http://www.dandalkura.com>

The home page, which reports in English, French, Hausa and Kanuri, does
not seem to have a schedule for shortwave broadcasts. At the bottom, you
will find a reference to "Radio Programs", but no link.

B-17 Updated AWR Shortwave schedule V_09, of Nov 28.

Dear Monitors dear Listener,
due to a Thunderstorm accident in Sri Lanka, the transmitter site
Trincomalee is actually not operating.

Probably for all this b17 period we are not broadcasting via TRM.

We had to shift as good as possible many of our transmissions on
different sites.

The quality will partly suffer and in other cases improved.

This is the time where your reports are specially very appreciated.

Please see attached the actual Schedule b17awr09_pub.

We apologise for this inconvenient situation and hope the station in
Trincomalee Sri Lanka will be soon full operating again.

Greetings and God bless you all in listening AWR.

BOLIVIA   5580.23,  Nov 29 at 0019 UT, VP signal with a trace of music
modulation. Way out of band, certainly bringing to mind R. San Jose, de
Chiquitos, which as of a year ago in WRTH 2017 was listed as irregular,
0.25 kW at 21-02v UT, and 11-17 UT.

But I think it has not been heard in a long time. The last report I find
of it was in dxld 17-05, by Claudio Galaz, Chile, Jan 28 at 1036 UT on
5580 kHz. And before that another by him, tentatively, Oct 20, *2015* at
2350 UT. Back the last few years there have been a few other logs of it on
"5580" kHz, but I recall it really being off-frequency. Finally I find my
own log from 2014y which was:

"5580.3 kHz, May 18 [2014] at 0108 UT not only a carrier but some music
audible, from presumed R. San Jose, allegedly only 250 watts per WRTH
2014, with closing varying around 0200. I check for this most evenings,
but seldom anything detectable. There is still too much local line noise
to copy anything, but the carrier is still there at rechex 0119, 0132,
0141, 0153 UT"

This station also appeared in the latest Domestic Broadcasting Survey of
April 2017:

"B 5580.3kHz 0.25kW BOL R San Jose, S. Jose de Chiquitos 1100-1700 UT
2100v-0200v UT S catholic px, poor modulation JAN17"

B means irregular, as opposed to C sporadic; Jan 17 was the last known log
of it. The November issue of Anker Petersen's monthly updater, Tropical
Bands Monitor, still shows no logs of it since Jan 2017. These very useful
references are accessible free via  <http://dswci.org>

I also noted previously: "something on 5580 kHz could also be a MW
harmonic from 558, 620, 930, or 1395 kHz". Anyhow, it bears further
checking now!

mayor's office in Ibague has announced that the city will get a
new AM radio station on 670 kHz. It is hoped that the station will be

for the citizens of Ibague to take active part in the programming of
this new radio station.

MADAGASCAR   15420.016  BBC London En WS scheduled at 05-08 UT, via MGLOB
Talata Volonondry Madagascar relay facility, noted at 0657 UT on Nov 30.

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?!

PERU   {4810  OAW9A  1 kW in Aoki list, in dswci DBS#19 4810kHz 1kW
PRU Radio Logos, Chazuta, Tarapoto last heard in FEB16.
0900-0300 S/Vn, incl. Shuar. Sponsored by HCJB, wb.}

4810  OAW9A  On Monday Nov 27 I visited Radio Logos in Chazuta, about
90 minutes ride east of Tarapoto. The road is paved. For the last half of
the route the road is cut into the side of the steep hills flanking the
bank of the Huallaga River.

In several places the pavement has been washed away and in one place the
original road was covered by a landslide. A detour was plowed through the
debris.

The prosperity of Tarapoto has not reached the Chazuta area. There are
some eco-resorts nearby but the town of Chazuta is very poor. All the
streets I saw were dirt. The houses mostly unpainted wood or adobe, a few
with thatched roofs and most with rusting tin panels. In the 1800s and
early 1900s this was an important transit point on the Huallaga River.
(The book I am writing - an historical travelogue of northern Peru - will
tell of those times.)

The Radio Logos offices are located on a side street several blocks from
the plaza. There is a large open compound with a building along the
street. The name is painted prominently on the side. I arrived about 10:30
a.m. and the station was off the air until late afternoon. There was no
one there but a woman nearby walked me back through to the other side of
the compound. Pastor Jairo Sangama lives directly behind there. He was
resting in his hammock when I got there. He opened up the station building
and took me on a tour of the facilities. There isn't much. In front there
is a small control for the transmitter, which he says is on a hillside
east of town. Then there is a small studio. and a large mostly empty
workshop room.

At the moment they broadcast for four hours in the morning and the evening
only on 4810 kHz shortwave in twelve different indigenous languages. Most
of the programming is pre-recorded and comes on CDs but they sometimes do
live connections with jungle villages via cellphone. Pastor Jairo showed
me two different models of solar-powered fixed-frequency radios that they
give to leaders in the different jungle communities. They recently
received a license for an FM transmitter in Chazuta but are awaiting the
transmitter.

They have applied for a license for a new SW station in Pucallpa but are
still awaiting approval and so have not bought equipment yet. (I was told
elsewhere that the Ministry of Communications is no longer issuing
licenses for either medium wave or shortwave.)

Pastor Jairo said the station is fully funded from Peruvian sources but
they do have some outside contacts. He said he had recently been in
Dallas, Texas. Across the street the church was sponsoring a dentistry
workshop. Two American dentists, from Florida and Oklahoma, were teaching
basic dentistry.

ROMANIA [and non] 7345, on Nov 28 at 0649 UT, two stations, both in
English, about equal level. One is of course BBC via Ascension Isl relay,
from 0600 UT one of our better chances at it here in the abandoned target
area of North America, really aimed into Africa, natch. Surely the other
station is here by mistake at 0649 UT conveniently IDs as Radio Romania
International. But in HFCC we find that *both* are registered here, from
0630 UT, RRI Tiganesti 300 kW, 307 degrees toward W Europe, and here we
are directly beyond.

With widely diverse nominal target areas, they must have concluded this is
not a collision. But it sure is here, and would not be surprised if enough
ASC is making it into Europe to cause a problem there.
Both are off by 0701 UT.

International Shortwave Broadcast Guide - Winter 2017-2018. 9th Edition

Many long time shortwave radio listeners remember the bevy of shortwave
radio stations that broadcasted a constant drumbeat of political
propaganda from around the world during the old Cold War years. Shortwave
radio frequencies, played a very important role in promoting the then
ideological confrontation between the East and the West.

Once again shortwave radio has moved to the forefront of a new Cold War,
as tensions heat up around the various world hotspots. To follow the
action on shortwave radio, you need an accurate and comprehensive
broadcast guide.

Teak Publishing is pleased to announce the release of that important radio
reference -

Winter 2017-2018 International Shortwave Broadcast Guide (ISWBG)
electronic book by Amazon

bestselling author Gayle Van Horn, W4GVH. This all important semi-annual
information resource is your electronic guide to the world of shortwave
radio listening.

The release of this book is very timely for international radio monitors
given the recent outbreak of tensions in the world hotspots of Eastern
Europe, Middle East, East Asia and specifically, the Korean Peninsula.

Shortwave radio listeners are routinely entertained with unique
perspectives to events, music, culture, history, and news from other
countries that you won't see or hear on your local or national broadcast
channels. Shortwave radio broadcast is not restricted by country borders
or oceans, and can propagate thousands of miles, reaching millions of
listeners worldwide, in over 300 different languages and dialects. These
worldwide transmissions are monitored on internationally assigned radio
frequencies between 1700 kHz and 30 MHz.

There are even broadcasts from the dark side, transmitted from
broadcasters known as clandestine or clanny stations. Clandestine
broadcasters are wrapped in mystery and intrigue, and they usually exist
to bring about some sort of political change to the country they are
targeting. Programming may largely be half-truths or sometimes even
outright lies, but it is essentially propaganda for their cause.

Listeners who live in the United States can easily hear shortwave
broadcast stations from China, Cuba, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Iran,
Japan, New Zealand, North/South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey,
United Kingdom, United States, Vietnam, and many other counties if you
have an inexpensive shortwave radio receiver, and you know when and where
to listen!

If you want to get in on the action, then this Amazon electronic book is
your ticket the travel the world via radio. The ISWBG is our exclusive 24-
hour station/frequency guide to "all" of the known longwave, selected
mediumwave and shortwave radio stations currently broadcasting at time of

publication that has by-hour station schedules that include all language
services, frequencies and world target areas.

New in this ninth edition of the ISWBG is a feature, "Monitoring the

regime in Pyongyang. Other authors in this edition include The Spectrum
