ALASKA   3200 kHz  2120-2240 UT, HAARP Oct 22 Tuned in and sure enough,
there HAARP with sweep tones pretty much continuously to past 22:00 (they
were scheduled between 21:00 and 22:00 to run something called a VLF
Amplification) until off somewhere around 22:40. Fair, sometimes good
reception.

5400 kHz  0619- UT, HAARP on Oct 23 Listening to first night of Amanda
Dawn Christie's experiment via HAARP. Excellent level, following each
frequency, or combination of frequencies: 4.85, 4.80 (marred by CODAR),
5.4 MHz, 9.5 MHz, 3.3 MHz, Very strong into Masset, BC.

5800 kHz  0415- UT, HAARP on Oct 23 Following HAARP tonight. They started
this hour centered on 4800 kHz, with buzzy carriers every 20 kHz over a
span of about 400 kHz. As soon as they went off this channel, they jumped
to 5800 kHz. Very strong into Masset! Cut suddenly just before 04:20 UT,
and 30 seconds later, started up centered on 6800 kHz. Slightly weaker.

They then proceeded to move up as per their schedule to 7.35, 8.05 (7.35
center from 04:29:40 to 04:40 UT, and 8.05 MHz from a few seconds after
that to 04:50 UT, and then switching to centered on 9600 (actually 9595)
kHz and presumed they'll go to the top of the hour. This test is called
the satellite instrument calibration. Test ended, sure enough just before
05:00 UT.

9600 kHz  2345- UT, HAARP on Oct 22 Noted an open carrier with intermit-
tent on/off, lasting a few seconds at a time. This one was scheduled from
22:00 to 24:00 UT, and was called GIOS HF Ocean Scatter, and was very
strong into Masset. Then, near 00:00 UT, a very wide band buzz centered on
9600 kHz and 25 kHz on each side began continuously. I can only assume
it's them! Off at 00:05:40 UT, but back again at 00:06:09 UT. Off at
00:11:40 UT. Back at 00:12:05 UT. This test is called AERA Radar.
Scheduled from 00:00 to 01:30 UT.

ALASKA   11870 kHz  1637- UT, KNLS on Oct 18 Very strong in Mandarin, but
still less compared to KNLS in Russian at same time on 9580 kHz (S=9+30dB
to 40!). Clearly both transmitters are operational and seemingly at full.
(Walt / Volodya Salmaniw, Masset-BC-CAN, hcdx Oct 31)

ALASKA   On November 4, Konstantin Chernushenko (KNLS / MWV radio) finally
sent an e-QSL for receiving a transmission on Russian KNLS radio on July
27, at 15.00 UT at a frequency of 9800 kHz. In the cover letter, he apolo-
gized for the long delay in responding and confirmed that the US mail this
year (!) does not deliver mail to Russia and he is forced to send e-QSL.

In addition, I can report that I managed to receive this broadcast from
Alaska with great difficulty in the Moscow region and managed to hear it
for about 15 minutes in total

ALGERIA   7200 kHz  0506- UT, RTA Bechar / Radio Algerienne on Oct 19.
Excellent reception with modern Algerian vocal. Very nice signal and
modulation.

9450 kHz  0530- UT, Radio Algerienne on Oct 20. Unlike the other night,
nothing on 7200 kHz, but very strong, clean signal in Arabic with news at
05:30 UTC.

ARMENIA/AUSTRIA   2 x 6180 kHz special programs this weekend, Nov 4 / 5.

Listening to the history of Radio Terrassa in Spanish on 6180 kHz via
Gavar Armenia. Fair signal - clear channel, but moderate fading here in
Caversham so SINPO 35333 at best.
(Alan Pennington, Caversham-UK, via BrDXC-UK groups.io news Nov 4)

First one is the history of Radio Terrassa, an one hour program from
1978 about being 50 years on the air then. Spanish language program
from 1800-1900 UTC on Friday, 4th November. Via Yerevan Gavar towards
Europe 330 degree azimuth with 100 kW.

Second one is from the Radio Andorra archives. 90 minutes with Serge
Gainsbourg. Saturday, 5th November 1700-1830 UTC on 6180 kHz via
ORS Moosbrunn towards Europe 270 degree azimuth with 100 kW.
(Christian Milling-D, via BrDXC-UK groups.io news Nov 4 / 5)

ARMENIA  - sorry, sorry, - - so sorry - to give this report on Nov 4:

very very unusual weak like 20 kW tiny signal on 6180 kHz from Gavar-ARM,
very unlikely the use of 100 kW on a 270 / 305 / 330 degr 8 x dipol rows
curtain antenna, dipole-tipped, when compared to the other Oman, Kashgar
etc great signals in 49 meterband at this 18 UT hour this Nov 4th evening,
when checked all in western Europe, at Mauno Finland place, in Greece,
in Hungary, at Doha Qatar und Delhi India installations remotedly.

It is a pity for the great commitment that much appreciated all Christian
Milling always moves, I don't know what it was - about the 'thin signal'
tonight either.

Surfing the web I found this link that contains the bulletins of the
"Australian Radio World" in PDF, from 1936 to 1951, in total there are
about 180 bulletins, with articles of interest, many receivers ads, etc.
Some will already know it but others may not.

AUSTRALIA/INDONESIA/SOLOMON ISLS   Re:  It's Alive': Sunspot Explodes
Creating Huge Solar Flare, Radio Blackouts. - wor.

Here in California, on Nov 7, instead of a Pacific blackout, I had
amazingly good propagation !!

Radio 4KZ (5055 kHz from Australia) was actually readable with the weather
and sea conditions at 1005 UT given after the news; started listening at
0925+ UT; some type of promo for "Peter Frampton, Rock & Roll"; many pop
songs. (Gregory Abbott - "Shake You Down," etc.). Is not often I get such
good reception! Brief audio attached.

SIBC Honiara SLM (5020 kHz) was also fairly readable; certainly above the
norm; 0902-0915 UT; health program about the importance of personnel hy-
giene and frequently washing of hands, etc.; heard from 0835+ UT; DJ in
Pijin with dedications, playing pop songs (Tina Turner - "Missing You,"
etc.); many SIBC - Voice of the Nation IDs; 0852 UT, shipping schedule.
Wonderful to have this one fairly readable for a change!

RRI Nabire-INS (7289.93 kHz), the best reception since their reactivation;
0818 UT till suddenly cut off at 0831* UT; playing pop songs. Wish they
had stayed on longer !
(Ron Howard-CA-USA, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Nov 6 - 7)

AUSTRIA   6155 kHz  0553- UT,  OE1 Oesterreich Rundfunk via ORS Moosbrunn
Oct 20. Superb reception over the Pole in German. If Austria closes, I'll
miss this site for sure, with the diverse number of users. Let's hope it
doesn't happen!.

AUSTRIA   AWR via ORS Moosbrunn, Austria, 300 kW powerful unit towards
Pakistan scheduled at 0200-0230 UT on 7340 kHz in Urdu & 0230-0300 UT in
Punjabi in B22 season is not heard yesterday and today. Other AWR trans-
missions scheduled via ORS Moosbrunn 300 kW are heard.
(Jose Jacob-IND  VU2JOS  AWR Monitor, wor Oct 30)

AWR via ORS Moosbrunn SW 7430 kHz not heard. Info from AWR that
ORS Moosbrunn Tx was transmitting their program at 0200-0300 UT wrongly on
7430 instead of 7340 kHz on the last 2 days ! Hope that it will be rec-
tified tomorrow.
(Jose Jacob-IND  VU2JOS, AWR Monitor, wor Oct 31)

This transmission used to follow BBC Afghanistan 0030-0200 UT on 5930 kHz
(winter frequency). Not so anymore, HFCC shows that this frequency is now
run by Vatican Radio at Santa Maria di Galeria, and, apparently, Encompass
has taken out anything else from ORS Moosbrunn center as well.

Is this turns out to be a permanent cancellation it would mean that ORS
Moosbrunn is now on air only between 0400 and 2100 UT, if nothing else is
missing, too. Whatever the reasons may be - already for many years no
engineer was babysitting overnight there anymore, so it's not this kind
of savings.

At present quite a lot of gossip surrounds the ORS Moosbrunn station, as
in part also discussed here. One rumour is that the Telefunken trans-
mitters will no longer be used after the end of this year and the opera-
tion be limited to the two 100 kW Thomcast transmitters, installed in
2001 to replace old 60s vintage gear. However, the AWR schedule, as issued
just two weeks ago, shows that the 300 kW slots continue to be booked
until March.

Thus the source of the rumour should be asked if it knows the contracts
between AWR and ORS. If not a bit of restraint would not hurt, and concen-
trating on confirmed facts, including of course monitoring observations
like this one.

AUSTRIA/ARMENIA    Werte Hoerjunkies,
fuer den Konsum des folgenden Programmtipps empfehlen wir dringend ein
offenes Fenster, es wird Rauch geben (und das nicht nur von Zigaretten).
90 Minuten von und mit dem Enfant Terrible der franzoesischen Musik-
geschichte, Serge Gainsbourg, gibt es am Samstag, 05. November 2022 von
1700-1830 UTC auf 6180 kHz via ORS Moosbrunn.

Die aus dem Archiv von Radio Andorra gerettete Kassette aus dem Jahr 1978
wies einen nicht unerheblichen Anteil an THC auf - zumindest musikalisch.
Frei nach Oberstudienrat Dr. Taft: "Kiffen Sie? Rauchen Sie Haschisch?" -
es werden anderthalb ungewoehnliche Stunden, soviel sei versprochen. Damit
geht die Sendereihe "aus den Archiven von Radio Andorra" ins vorlaeufige
Finale, am 03. Dezember gibt es dann noch eine 3-stuendige Sendung mit dem
Saenger Herve Vilard.

Zwar liegen hier noch einige Archiv-Sendungen, die sich ueber eine Ueberar-
beitung freuen wuerden und wir haben auch jede Menge Ideen fuer andere
Andorra-Revival-Produktionen mit ehemaligen Moderatorinnen und Moderatoren,
aber mit den gestiegenen Kosten in allen Bereichen des Lebens wird das
schwierig in der Taktung und dem Umfang alleine aus Spass an der Freude zu
finanzieren. Falls sich die Crowd aber fuer solche Sendungen begeistert,
steht einer Fortsetzung nichts im Wege:  <https://gofund.me/6e460482> ist
der virtuelle Hut.

Einen Tag vorher gibt es was fuer unseren spanischsprachigen Rundfunk-
freunde: Am Freitag, 04. Nov 2022 laeuft von 18-19 Uhr UTC auf 6180 kHz
via Yerevan Gavar Richtung Europa die Geschichte von Radio Terrassa -
50 Jahre auf den Wellen. Diese Kassette stammt aus dem Jahr 1978 und be-
schreibt die Geschichte der Senders, der 1928 gegruendet wurde. Mit vielen
Audioausschnitten und einem Sprecher mit Hammerstimme auch sicherlich fuer
non-speaker ganz nett. Auf die Schnelle habe ich nur diesen katalanischen
Wiki-Eintrag gefunden.

<https://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A0dio_Terrassa_(EAJ-25)>

Subject: Radio Andorra and Radio Terrassa (EAJ-25)

Dear listeners,
for the consumption of the following programme tip we strongly recommend
an open window, there will be smoke (and not only from cigarettes).

90 minutes by and with the enfant terrible of French music history, Serge
Gainsbourg, will be available on Saturday, 05 November 2022 from 1700-1830
UT on 6180 kHz via Moosbrunn. The 1978 cassette rescued from the archives
of Radio Andorra had a not inconsiderable amount of THC - at least musi-
cally. Loosely based on Senior Counsellor Dr. Taft: "Do you smoke pot?
Do you smoke hashish?" - it's going to be an unusual hour and a half,
I can promise you that much.

With this, the series "from the archives of Radio Andorra" enters its pre-
liminary finale, on 3 December there will be another 3-hour programme with
the singer Herve Vilard. There are still a few archive programmes here
that would be happy to be reworked and we also have a lot of ideas for
other Andorra revival productions with former presenters, but with the
increased costs in all areas of life, it will be difficult to finance this
in the frequency and scope just for the fun of it. However, if the crowd
is enthusiastic about such programmes, nothing stands in the way of a con-
tinuation:

<https://gofund.me/6e460482>

is the virtual hat.

A day earlier, there's something for our Spanish-speaking radio friends:
on Friday, 04. Nov 2022, the story of Radio Terrassa - 50 years on the
airwaves will run from 18-19 UT on 6180 kHz via Gavar towards Europe.

This cassette dates from 1978 and describes the history of the station,
which was founded in 1928. With many audio excerpts and a speaker with
a hammer voice, it is certainly also quite nice for non-speakers. The
only thing I found quickly was this Catalan Wiki entry.

First noted on 13 October and regularly since, with poor, occasionally
fair signals, though reception suffers from adjacent channel interference,
particularly 6155 kHz ORF Vienna Austria / ORS Moosbrunn prior to 0700 UT,

CHINA   7345 kHz  Voice of the Greater Bay, CNR-7 program via Beijing,
on Nov 2, excellent signal 1145 UT with group conversation in Cantonese,
laughing and chatting. This is by far the most consistent and best channel
for listening to this slick programming targeting HK area. Too bad, was
kinda hoping B-22 period would find a shift away from this fqy, uncover-
ing a better shot at Myanmar's Thazin Radio, which shows up here later in
my local morning, from time to time.

CZECH REPUBLIC/GERMANY   Radio Prag International verabschiedet sich von
der Kurzwelle.

Radio Prag International hat seinen Auslandsdienst auf Kurzwelle 2011 ein-
gestellt. Seit 2013 wurde sein Programm dank dem shortwaveservice ueber
den KW-Sendemast Kall-Krekel ausgestrahlt. [...]

Mehr dazu erfahren Sie im Interview mit Christian Milling vom
shortwaveservice.

<https://deutsch.radio.cz/radio-prag-international-verabschiedet-sich-von-
kurzwelle-8765700>

Herr Milling, der Anlass fuer unser Gespraech ist ziemlich traurig. Die
Energiekrise mit den extrem gestiegenen Stromkosten hat alle moeglichen
Bereiche stark betroffen, darunter auch den shortwaveservice und das
Sendezentrum Kall-Krekel in der Eifel. Welche Folgen hat dies konkret?

"Wir werden unsere Sendetaetigkeiten aufs Minimale beschraenken, also auf
Kunden, die sagen, sie moechten noch bis Jahresende erstmal weitermachen.
Aber alles, was an Dienstleistungen darueber ist, auch Relay-Station fuer
andere Programme, muessen wir leider einstellen, weil die Preise sich so
drastisch entwickeln, dass sich das alles nicht mehr lohnen wuerde."

Kall-Krekel Sendeanlage - Foto: YouTube Kall-Krekel Sendeanlage -
Foto: YouTube

Dazu muss ich leider ergaenzen, dass Radio Prag International ueber keine
zusaetzlichen Mittel verfuegt, um die Kosten mittragen zu koennen.
Das bedeutet, dass wir ab dem 1. November nicht mehr in Ihrem Sendeplan
stehen koennen. Wie konkret sieht nun die Zukunft der Sendeanlage Kall-
Krekel aus ?  Wie wird das Programm ab dem 1. November gestaltet?

"Wir werden noch die Sendungen von Radio Slowakei International in vier
Sprachen ausstrahlen. Und es wird noch das Programm von Radio Mi Amigo
International geben, das sendet auf einer separaten Frequenz den ganzen
Tag lang. Aber das war's dann im Wesentlichen."

Koennen Sie ein bisschen zurueckblicken ?
Wenn ich mich gute erinnere, wurden die Sendungen von RPI Radio Prague
International seit 2013 von Kall-Krekel in der Eifel aufgenommen.
Mit welchem Anliegen haben Sie damals das Ganze ins Leben gerufen?
Welche Sender waren daran beteiligt?

"Wir wollten ein Angebot schaffen, das Europa und die Welt ein bisschen
zusammenbringt. Es gibt ja viele deutschsprachige Angebote quer durch die
Welt, allerdings sind die ja teilweise so verstreut und auch nicht alle im
Internet auffindbar gewesen. Das war die Zeit, als sich Podcasts noch
langsam entwickelt haben. Wir wollten auf unseren Kurzwellenfrequenzen ein
durchgaengiges Informationsangebot aus verschiedenen Laendern anbieten.

Man muss aber auch sagen, in den letzten knapp zehn Jahren hat sich die
Welt extrem geaendert, die Digitalisierung ist fortgeschritten, die Sender
sind im Internet besser auffindbar. So hoffe ich, dass der Wegfall der
Kurzwelle nicht allzu schlimm ist, und die hervorragenden Sendungen von
Radio Prag International auch noch digital im Netz auffindbar sind."

Vielen unserer Hoerer bot Ihr Sendezentrum eine sehr willkommene Moeglich-
keit, Radio Prag International im Aether zu empfangen. Wir haben dazu
viele Briefe und Zuschriften bekommen, in denen sie darueber berichtet
haben. Die Abschaltung der Kurzwelle wird sicher eine sehr traurige Nach-
richt fuer unsere Hoerer sein. Denken Sie, dass es Hoffnung gibt auf eine
Rueckkehr auf die Kurzwelle irgendwann in der Zukunft?

"Wir werden unsere Anlagen nicht abreissen. Sie werden gewissermassen ein-
gemottet und auf kleiner Flamme weiter laufen. Und vielleicht sieht man
schon im naechsten Jahr, wohin der Trend geht - global, muss man natuer-
lich sagen. Digitales Radio wird immer wichtiger und findet grosse Ver-
breitung auch in Deutschland. DAB+, UKW werden ihren Teil dazu beitragen,
Global ist die Kurzwelle natuerlich immer mehr ein Nischenprodukt, und die
Verbreitung ueber digitale Medien wie Handys schreitet natuerlich voran.

Wer die Informationen hoeren moechte, findet natuerlich weiter Wege. Aber
ausschliessen, dass wir unseren Betrieb wieder erhoehen, will ich an
dieser Stelle nicht. Wir muessen erst einmal gucken, wie sich die Lage
entwickelt."

would only fix their transmitters !

9812.581 kHz  2058- UT, Radio Cairo on Oct 17. Distorted but strong signal
with hum. Was almost readable 20 minutes ago, but no longer. Listed in

before 21:39 UTC.

9902.519 kHz  1701- UT, Radio Cairo on Oct 18. Turkish is listed from

off-channel. I'm presuming this is Egypt. No audio otherwise heard today.

9902.56 kHz without any audio. At 18:36 UT on xx.574 kHz and perhaps some
really weak audio audible.

KUWAIT   15530 kHz  0501- UT, Radio Kuwait on Oct 19. The MUF is sure
holding up with this solar cycle. English programming, pretty identical

a younger man listening to them on this same frequency during our after-

KYRGYZ REPUBLIC   The branch of the American radio "Azattyk" does not
agree with the closure in Kyrgyzstan. The Ministry of Culture of Kyrgyz-
stan suspended the work of Azattyk Media (Azattyk), a branch of the
American Radio Liberty (a foreign media outlet recognized as a foreign
agent) on the territory of the republic for two months due to incorrect
coverage of the fighting on the Kyrgyz-Tajik border on September 14-17,
2022 of the year, reports the press service of the radio on October 26.

On the air of the radio plot it was reported that the Kyrgyz side attack-
ed the Tajik side. "According to the Ministry of Culture of Kyrgyzstan,
the story titled "Heavy fighting on the border of Kyrgyzstan and
Tajikistan" contains "elements of hate speech, unconfirmed information
about an alleged attack by the Kyrgyz side on Tajikistan," the press
service reports.

The branch of the American Radio Liberty (a foreign media outlet recogniz-
ed as a foreign agent) Azattyk does not agree that it disseminated uncon-
firmed information and aggravated the situation in society. It is stated
that the radio did not disseminate hateful information and did not sow
division among citizens by covering the events on the Kyrgyz-Tajik border
in the Batken region.

Recall, on September 17, the Ministry of Culture of Kyrgyzstan sent a
letter to Azattyk demanding to strictly comply with the norms of the
current legislation in the field of mass media and protection from false
information in the Internet space. This letter remained unanswered.

On October 24, the Ministry of Culture of Kyrgyzstan sent another letter
to Radio Azattyk, demanding that the material on the events on the Kyrgyz-
Tajik border be removed immediately within 24 hours of the request.
However, the radio ignored the demand, citing technical work.

LITHUANIA   Radio Baltic Waves International: Ukrainian Radio Missing ?

I record UR1 via Radio Baltic Waves International on LRTC Viesientos LTU
1386 kHz automatically every day starting just before 00:00 UT using the
University Enschede Twente SDR receiver. The UR1 relay is scheduled on
this transmitter from 21:00 to 02:00 UT. Just after 00:00 UT, "Ukraine:
security issue" in English is usually broadcast. But starting on 26 Oct,
Radio Svoboda has been broadcast during this hour as well as the previous
and following hour instead. This has continued for the past four days.

So (I haven't checked), Radio Svoboda might now be being broadcast from
18:30 to 02:00 UT. Whither UR1? Its Internet stream is still going. But
perhaps RBWI was getting a feed via satellite or some other means and that
is no longer available. Anyone know what's actually going on?
(Richard Langley-NB-CAN, wor Oct 29)

Well, tonight it looked as if their automation run amuck over the end-of-
DST schedule changes and someone kept trying to avoid a complete break-
down... just every junction, if you at all want to use that term for their
hard source switches, went wrong and had been corrected only after a
couple of minutes. Best part were a full five minutes of silence until the
transmission finally at 1805 cut into the voice of Vladimir Putin ... this
very quickly turned out to be Deutsche Welle, by way of their next items:

Steinmeier statement, analysis of Steinmeier statement, ... (he's a repre-
sentative figure with few real competences, so don't be afraid if you
don't know who this is). Finally at 1830 for a change a switch went well,
to RFE/RL Russian - but it could be that this whole audio version of DW's
Youtube service is played out by RFE/RL in Prague.

So this part of the planned schedule now appears to be:
1630-1700 Polskie Radio, Polish (staying at same CET time),
1700-1730 Polskie Radio, English (instead of German, or was this a mistake
          throughout?),
1730-1800 NHK World (ceded the first half of this UTC hour),
1800-1830 Deutsche Welle, Russian (staying at same UTC/Moscow time),
1830-???? RFE/RL, Russian - so now expanded to 0200?

NHK still kills a full ten minutes before the hour with the interval
signal. Apparently they can't be bothered to play out something, be it
just music.

And with the reported further five hours of RFE/RL, if this turns out to
be permanent, it is no surprise that the 2100-2200 UT hour on 1395 kHz
from Yerevan Gavar Armenia has been cancelled. A few days ago it had been
observed that the transmitter now went off at 2100 UT, after the scheduled
two hours of quality programming from Walterboro, South Carolina.

This single hour in Armenia was not booked by USAGM/TSI but instead by the
"Shortwaves for Freedom" project that now appears to be limited to a
cooperation with WRMI. The transmissions from Kostinbrod went away already
a couple of weeks ago.

NEW ZEALAND    New Schedule for RNZ 05-09 UT 13730 kHz.

13730 kHz  Since Saturday, 5 Nov, at around 0800-0900 UT, I could hear
co-channel interference between RNZ Pacific and CNR1. I have checked my
own KiwiSDR in Hong Kong and other remote SDRs in Okinawa, Indonesia and
Brisbane can hear the QRM as well. It is rather concerning since RNZ have
programmes in Tok Pisin on that hour and that co-channel interference may
affect reception in PNG.

I also hear some fan/machine noise QRM too after 1000 UT. It can be pretty
bad after 1200 UT but I think none of the listeners in South Pacific are
affected by that.

Re: Tiganesti DRM ?  Hallo Wolfgang,
mit der RRI-Tabelle bin ich leider aktuell in Verzug, diese werde ich
aber so schnell wie moeglich erstellen (nachdem ich alle Frequenzen
geprueft haben werde)!

Wollte gestern Abend ein wenig RRI Rumaenisch hoeren, ohne mir die
neuen Frequenzen angeschaut zu haben. 49m-Band: nichts (insbesondere
nicht auf der gewohnten Winterfrequenz 5990 kHz). 41m-Band: nichts.
War dann doch recht erstaunt, als ich auf rri.ro die aktuellen Abend-
frequenzen fand:

<https://www.rri.ro/ro_ro/frecvente-262>

11.820 ; 15.160 kHz!  11820 kHz O=3-4; 15160 kHz O=2-3
An so hohe Abendfrequenzen (in der Wintersaison!) kann ich mich nicht
erinnern.

[later]  Zum Glueck ist der Hollaendische Kleinsender auf 5955 kHz nicht
mehr (wie letzte Wintersaison B-21) // zu RRI Bukarest via Saftica on air
- man hat die Sendezeiten entsprechend eingeschraenkt:

<http://hfcc.org/data/schedbyfmo.php?seas=B22&fmor=ICN>

RRI Rumaenisch kam heute Nachmittag sehr gut herein, auf den beiden
Frequenzen 15370 und 17790 kHz (O=4-5); Deutsch Programm ungewohnt schwach
(verglichen mit B-21) auf 6040 und 7330 kHz (O=3), die Verstaendlichkeit
jedoch unbeeintraechtigt.

Letzte Saison war es eher umgekehrt: RRI Rumaenisch nachmittags kam - vor
allem gegen Ende der Sendung - nur schwach herein; Deutsch am Nachmittag
allerdings hervorragend. Vielleicht sind in dieser Wintersaison
tatsaechlich die Bedingungen fuer hoehere Frequenzen - zumindest am Tage -
besser?

Bei den ganzen Frequenzwechseln hat RRI uebrigens leider folgende Frequenz
Kollision aus B-21 mitgenommen:

Werk war ? Alles etwas seltsame Frequenz-Wahl gegenueber den voraus
gehenden Jahren. Ich habe mit Erich schon die viel zu hohen morgendlichen

Re:  RADIO EXTERIOR DE ESPANA - Cambio de hora, cambio de frecuencias.

I recall that the Noblejas site had 7 x 100 kW transmitters, but only four
are in regular use for those weekday and weekend periods.
{since decades, only four of seven in service, wb.}

It is unfortunate that there could not be a period where a certain fre-
quency needs to be retuned for a change from the daytime to evening in
North America, say on weekdays at 2200 UT. I am sure many would wish that
would be helpful, having a higher frequency in day and then shift to lower
channel at night so it can be propagationally helpful for listeners.

If REE could have made any change during A22, a 25mb channel would have
worked after 0000 UT instead of letting 16 meters (17855 kHz) fade out
after that time !

Simply put, frequency adjustments from daylight to evening are very
important to serve the area you want to reach.

UKRAINE   {occupied territories by Tsar Vladimir Putin war ...}

Branches of the All-Russian State Television & Radio Broadcasting Company
will be opened in the annexed territories.

The All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company will open
its branches in the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, Kherson and
Zaporozhye regions. This was reported by TASS with reference to the Prime
Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Chernyshenko.

It is planned to start broadcasting 26 Russian channels and more than
20 radio channels in the annexed {Ukrainian} territories of Russia. Also
ensure free broadcasting of regional and municipal channels and prefe-
rential access to Russian video services. "The most important thing is
that we are transferring ready-made IT solutions, IT technologies so that
new territories can be connected to the public services portal and state
information systems," TASS quotes Chernyshenko.

the radio station continues to expand the broadcasting area. On Oct 25,
2022, Alushta, Sudak and Dzhankoy joined the federal network of Russkoe
Radio.

This year, Russkoe Radio celebrated its 27th anniversary. According to
Mediascope, Radio Index, the station has a monthly reach of over
23 million people. Now more than 85,000 people, residents of Crimean
cities, as well as a huge number of tourists visiting these beautiful
resort regions, have the opportunity to tune their receivers to their
favorite radio station.

"Russkoe Radio" will sound in Alushta at a frequency of 102.9 MHz, in
Sudak - at a frequency of 104.7 MHz, in Dzhankoy - at a frequency of

Hi Walt, These are tests for a one-off broadcast he his doing on Nov 4.
There's a bit about it on his Facebook page:

(Chris Mackerell, wor Nov 1)

Looks like an AM signal came on for about 5 seconds, followed by a DRM
mode signal. I believe this is from Woofferton to India South Asia.
I'm getting some audio, with the following information: XHE_AAC (E1C123)
C.M. Obrecht EEP Data 10.26 kbps. Music when decoding from Masset-BC-CAN.
(Walter Salmaniw-CAN, wor Nov 2)

U.K.   Swiss C.M. Obrecht music program from ENC Woofferton site.

I rechecked my recording and the signal on 11710 kHz into Bengaluru (W6LVP
antenna) became solid after 1918 until sign off at 2000 UT. Prior to that
it was non-existent or spotty at best. After 1918.5 UT the SNR increased
gradually from 10.0 to as high as 22.2 db. Closing announcements in German
and English from 1958 to 2000 UT. Interesting music! Overall I would say a
very successful test of the DRM path.

Yes, sorry I left out the frequency of 11710 kHz ! Still well heard in
Bengaluru India at SNR up to 22.2 db at 1950 UT. Once the xmtr got squared
away at 1916 UT or so the signal has been solid here.

[...] The C.M. Obrecht music transmission from Wooferton to India coming
in nicely at the Bengaluru SDR after about 1916 with SNR up to 18.5 db.
Prior to that (from 1902 UT tune) reception was spotty to non-existent.
Electronic music and occasional male announcer in German.

At the moment they only broadcast on 9275 kHz in AM (daily except Satur-
days, 1300 ... 1800 local time). They are testing a bit with various
settings (DCC, power, etc). In the next few months, the 15150 kHz will
also be put into operation. At the moment the antenna does not allow that.

Probably more work will be done in October 2022 (when all the material is

A reminder of the importance of AM car radios.

According to recent reports, Ford will remove the AM radio from one of
its soon-to-be-released truck models. Tesla similarly removed AM and FM
from some of its vehicles last year.

Former administrators of the Federal Emergency Management Association
have been clear: Eliminating the radio from cars will hamper America's
rescue and recovery operations to a considerable degree.
