AUSTRIA    Liebe ADXB Rundmailbezieher!

Diesmal gibt es eine Programminformation zu einem Interview
mit Gert Hoeller und Harald Suess in OE1 -
Thema: Wer heute noch Kurzwelle hoert.

In einem lockeren Gespraech werden die verschiedenen Aspekte des
Kurzwellenhoerens angesprochen und analysiert, wo es heute noch
unverzichtbar geblieben ist, die Kurzwelle einzusetzen.

Hier der Hinweis dazu:

"Wer heute noch Kurzwelle hoert" in der OE1 Sendereihe
 - Moment - Leben heute -, Montag, den 29. Mai 2017.

Gespraech mit Gert Hoeller und Harald Suess zum Thema Kurzwelle

"...Moment - Leben heute
Die Welt am Drehknopf.
Kurzwellenradio als Hobby.

Die Kurzwelle ist die aelteste Radiowelle und die mit der groessten
Reichweite.

Die Signale koennen am ganzen Globus ueber sogenannte Weltempfaenger
gehoert werden. Besonders wichtig ist die Technologie fuer entlegene
Gebiete wie Pazifikinseln, die hohe See oder Wuesten, die anders kaum
erreichbar sind. Die meisten Laender strahlen Kurzwellenprogramme aus,
viele sogar in deutscher Sprache. Aus finanziellen Gruenden wurden in den
letzten 15 Jahren zahlreiche Sender eingestellt.

So auch der oesterreichische Auslandssender des ORF "Radio Oesterreich
International". Heute ist das Kurzwellenhoeren vor allem ein
vereinsmaessig organisiertes Hobby. Doch auch dort werden die Mitglieder

BONAIRE   "The Bonaire Power Up project will increase TWR's Latin America
broadcast signal from 100,000 to 450,000 watts. This will double the
potential listening audience in Latin America from 50 million to 100
million people and blanket Cuba with the Spanish programmes. Thanks to
many volunteers, much construction was completed in 2016. TWR hopes to
purchase the transmitter in 2017.

"After many months of upgrades and new construction at our Caribbean
station on the island of Bonaire [in 2016], we are preparing to install a
450,000-watt transmitter. With it, we will reach farther and stronger with
programs in Spanish and several other languages across not only the entire
nation of Cuba but also large portions of Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, and
other countries of the Caribbean and Latin America.

TWR will produce more programs in Cuba to give our Cuban listeners the
spiritual food they are hungry for. We will also have a strategic reach
into some of the world's remaining unreached people groups of the Amazon
region. God's provision through our generous donors has allowed us to come
very close to meeting our goal of $3.8 million."

It could be an interesting story what exactly they will purchase.
Already some years ago there had been hints that it could, like they
since then really did for Swaziland, buy used equipment from Germany
(Wachenbrunn or Burg would be possible origins).

By decision of the Directorate-General of the Bulgarian National Radio,
Radio Bulgaria's audio programs will be discontinued as from 1 June this
year. The individual daily contributions will appear as usual in the
respective headings in the coming weeks.

We would be pleased if you continue to show interest in the Bulgarian

Re: Bulgarian Radio re-broadcast in foreign langs via SW Kall Germany
on 6005 kHz end on May 30, - 25 years after communist eastern block
collapse.

Hi Wolfie...
I don't normally listen to external broadcasters via the internet, so I
wasn't aware that Bulgaria still had them. But it looks like they are
cutting back, and perhaps because people don't use them. It was so easy to
tune in a radio signal but not always so easy via a computer. Nearly all
of the German low power signals are hard to copy up here in the north of
England. They simply are not strong enough to overcome the local noise
levels. The best one used to be on 7310 kHz, but even that is now at poor
strength ... all of this in daytime, and I wouldn't expect much difference
at 'night' when bigger signals could cause problems.

I've been following the recent China alterations and additions, but
haven't knowlingly heard anything of them as yet.

It's interesting to read that Dongfang Hainan Island is being used to
replace some of the transmitters that are 'under maintenance' ... I wonder
what the power of these transmitters is. The one registered on 17800 kHz
for DRM is shown as 30 kW, but if in AM perhaps would operate at a higher
power ?  {100kW}

Maybe it's a coincidence that so many transmitters are undergoing
'maintenance' at the same time ...
(Noel R. Green-UK, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews June 2)

BULGARIA   In case it has not been reported in detail otherwise (in
English language): The production of Radio Bulgaria broadcasts ceased on
May 31. The general director of BNR gave low listener numbers as reason.
The foreign language webpages are still being updated at present, but this
is supposed to mostly stop within the next few weeks as well, only text
services in English and Russian will be kept. Radio Bulgaria hopes that
external institutions can save it from being wound up completely.

Remember how Ivo said "it's the beginning of the end" when they stopped
the shortwave (and a little bit later mediumwave, too) transmissions five
years ago? The last gasp of the Padarsko transmitters is still online:

CANADA   CHU's 3330 kHz Transmitter Back on the Air.

The CHU 3330 kHz transmitter went back on the air at about 1700 UT
yesterday (30 May 2017) according to the NRC technician. Transmission has
been intermittent since February and completely off since early March. The
problem was traced to a faulty underground antenna cable, which had to be
replaced.

When the cable was dug up, there was no obvious sign of damage according
to the technician. But the cable had been in the ground since before 1981.

He said
"The 7850 kHz cable is just as old so we will try and change it soon
before we have a similar problem."

After an alert from Ron Howard  that 3330 kHz was back on the air, I
checked the signal here in NB around 0200 UT last night and had a good
signal even indoors on the Field BT with its whip antenna. Signal level
was about the same as 7850 kHz.

CHINA   "EAST TURKISTAN, for which Dongfang subs":

I fear here are two different stories messed together. One are the
temporary shortwave transmissions of two CNR programs due to extensive
repairs on a transmission facility in Beijing, affecting their mediumwave
frequencies as well as various other CNR shortwave outlets. It turned out,
as reproduced in dxld 17-20, that the Dongfang facility is being used for
these shortwave substitutes (I think Ivo had in the meantime a slightly
different version, quoting them all as being 100 kW).

The other story is that CRI German service advised that some of its
shortwave frequencies, all from Hutubi (Urumqi), would be off for a few
days and had indeed been off {and other CRI languages from Urumqi Hutubi
on 500 kW power too, but not all entries on the schedule, depending of
repair overhoul need, wb}.

Thus all the HFCC excerpts and random mentions of other outlets being on
or off or probably coming from elsewhere. I don't think that Dongfang was
involved in substituting for Hutubi, if any took place at all.

GUAM   Unpacking Additional Savings - Guam Gets More Solar Panels.

The KTWR team on Guam recently received a large shipment - a solar array.

Now the digging, setting and pouring begins. The team will have to dig
post holes, set up the posts and pour concrete. The hardest part,
according to Mike Sabin, KTWR chief engineer.

This is the third and final phase of the project, which started in 2014
when the first solar array was installed.

The team started the project because the power bill continues to increase.

Running a radio station requires a lot of electricity. Broadcasting at up
to 500 kilowatts over thousands of kilometres during peak hours - from
Guam to China and other parts of Asia - tends to use quite a bit more
power than the average home. As a result, the largest line item in KTWR's
budget goes to paying the power bill.

After seeing a local church use solar panels, the team thought it would be
a good solution for the shortwave transmitting site.

With the current two phases in place since 2015, KTWR has been saving
6 percent on its electricity bill. These solar arrays generate 44 kWs of
electricity. "Our total capacity with phase three will be 82 kilowatts,"
Sabin said.

This additional capacity will bump the savings to 9 percent.

"It continues to help us use ministry funds to reach more people because
we don't have to spend it on the power bills," Sabin said.

The transmitting site broadcasts the gospel to countries throughout Asia,
including China, North Korea and Indonesia. The power of shortwave is its
ability to travel long distances and over mountain ranges into people's
homes.

Guam can get a lot of high winds and typhoons so the team is thankful that
the typhoons haven't done any damage to solar panels.

GUAM   Has received two QSL from KSDA for reception on July, 30th (on a

KOREA's    Glenn Hauser log - June 1 - Korea.
Hi Glenn, June 1, noted VOHope on 9100 kHz, with their usual strong signal
and only a faint trace of Sound of Hope very far underneath. Daily I
usually check about four frequencies of SOH. Have noted for a long time
now it's extremely rare that China bothers to jam them with CNR1. Have not
kept a detail log, but seems to happen only a few times a month. Otherwise
SOH frequencies are clear.

KOREA's   On May 28 confirmed the following prgrs in Korean all plus so
called "tsunami jamming":

Voice/Echo of Hope at 1330-1856 UT 3985 4885 6003 6250 6348.5 and 9100 kHz

MOLDOVA  {RUSSIA}   Radio Vesti FM operating 24 hrs on MW 1413 kHz
Grigoriopol Maiac already more than month has two intermodulated spurs on
approx 1395.5 and 1430.5 kHz. In a dark part of the day wistling with
Iran(?) on 1395 kHz and with Italy, Sawa (Djibouti heard regulary here in
deep night) and Ukraine.

When I tuned on Ukraine at 1600-2000 UT in Russian on usual rx strong
whistle there was, so on Sony ICF2001D RUI was clear on 1431.1 kHz.
That's remind me on 60s when in Sofia there was a secret tx operating
on MW 809.1 kHz (maybe this .1) to jamming radio Skopje Macedonia
with whistle, later closed.

By the way now and today in the programmes of Bulgarian National Radio
when are included talks from people speaking in other languages than
Bulgarian always there is a translation into Bulgarian but when is
speaking someone in Macedonian there is not translation as boycott -
for Bulgarian authorities there is not such language like Macedonian.

PNG local songs. Very heavy atmospherics on this night making listening
difficult and anncts virtually unintelligible. Seemed to be a mix of
English and Tok Pisin. No clear ID on that occasion, but had to be Milne

SYRIA   [non] . A new Clandestine Syrian station testing on MW.

Hello DXers, Yesterday 29-May-2017 around 1930 UT I noticed a new radio
station on 1350 kHz. The station gave ID as Radio Al Kul (kul in Arabic
means All). Checked online and reached their web site
<http://www.radioalkul.com>

According to their web site they are a Syrian news radio with up to
the minute news about Syria and Syrians through a network of reports.

They transmit on FM 95.5 MHz in Aleppo and Idleb in Syria and on Nile
Sat satellite frequency 12562 Vertical 27500. Parts of Aleppo are
already under the control of ISIL. They have a live stream on their
website as well. I checked the programmes on 1350 kHz and it is matching
the online stream. They are transmitting from 1930 to 2100 UT; of course
the transmitting place is unknown but before they went on air, TWR from
Gavar was on with the usual programmes.

The program content is mainly music and news on top of the hour
and :30 of the hour as well. Here's a recording of part of
the transmission of 29-May-2017

<https://app.box.com/s/v2ytwv4hcz2d5pqca37j1hr5h66mc4x7>

I sent them a reception report but didn't get any reply. 73 from Egypt
(Tarek Zeidan-EGY, dxld yg May 30)

re Nile Sat satellite frequency 12562 Vertical 27500 ...

No such multiplex is shown in the usual lists.
Highest frequency listed for 7 degr West is 12.476 GHz.

The F_B profile  <https://www.facebook.com/Radio.Alkul>
allegedly exists since 2013. Certainly realistic, considerung that this
profile got 234.834 likes so far. So the operation itself is not new at
all, only their lease of mediumwave airtime in Armenia (unless this goes
on already for some time as well, just unnoticed until now).

[later]  Aha! So we have also their provider of the satellite
transmission. It's a company in Bahrain, using Eutelsat capacity.

<http://noorsat.com/page/about-noorsat>

At least one more detail that is not in the mud...
(Kai Ludwig-D, dxld yg May 31)

Yes, you are right they are actually transmitting on Eutelsat 8 West ...
but in this part of the world any satellite located on 7 West or near that
transponder it is Nile Sat.

As for transmitting on MW they just started that on 29 May 2017 to cover
all of Syria, but the FM broadcast has been there for sometime now.

SYRIA/LEBANON   Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as

The US-based Reform Party of Syria radio station Radio Free Syria started
Arabic-language broadcasts at 1800 UT on 20 June 2004, on 13650 kHz.

The station came on the air abruptly, "crash starting" at 1800 UT with mx
and slogans, identifing as Voice of Free Syria (Sawt al-Suriya al-Hurr).
This was followed by a 10-minute nx bulletin and commentary. The rest of
the programme consisted of a variety of Western and Arabic mx interspersed
with slogans by both male and female announcers. An Arabic-language
commentary was heard between 1838 and 1852 UT, with the station closing
abruptly at 1859 UT.

Bearings taken on this txion show that the broadcast may originate from
facilities near Koeln, Germany. In the minute before Radio Free Syria came
on the air, a brief clip of the opening of the Radio Free Syria / Sawt al-

several seconds of Deutsche Welle before the programme "crash started" at
1800 UTC.

My reception at 1800 UT Sunday night on 13650 kHz was similar to what I
hear on the two mp3 recordings. Their signal was peaking to about 5 on the
power meter and I didn't have too many problems with adjacent CRI
13640 kHz. In the annmts all I could pick out was a word sounding like
"Thowrah".

BTW - was the "echo" I heard on both recordings actual or due to computer
"processing" of the recordings? I didn't notice it.

"RADIO FREE SYRIA" GOES LIVE.
The Reform Party of Syria announced today that the first ever pro-
Democracy grassroots based "Radio Free Syria" (RFS) will go live on June
20 at 9:00pm Damascus time (1:00 EST Standard Time or 1800 UTC time) on
the Short Wave 13650 kHz. The radio will be heard in Syria, Lebanon,
Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Turkey, Yemen, Qatar, Kuwait,
Bahrain, UAE, and Oman.

RFS will concentrate on educational and entertainment programming as well
as programs about democracy and the rule of law. The station will be
managed by a team of Syrian broadcasters, journalists, and writers.

RFS hours of operations will vary. The intent is to build the content up
to 5 hours daily by December 2004. In August, RFS will be able to
broadcast live room discussions on the Internet on Short Wave radio to
provide democratic Syrians from all over the world the possibility of
addressing Syrians inside Syria with live talk shows.

Furthermore, the Reform Party of Syria intends to allocate part of the
programming to other democratic parties, human rights groups, and
organizations that promote civic societies and the rule of law. The Syrian
Democratic Coalition, made-up of 9 parties and organizations, will be able
to use RFS as a platform to call for harmony and tolerance amongst the
people of Syria and the Middle East.

Radio Free Syria to Break Assad's Media Monopoly.

Radio Free Syria will hit the airwaves this weekend, Clandestine Radio
Watch (CRW) has learned, marking the first phase of a sophisticated media
campaign to chip away at the Ba'ath Party regime in Damascus and to
promote democracy and tolerance.

The station's inaugural broadcast will occur on June 20, 2004, and air
thereafter on Sundays at 1800 UTC on 13650 kHz.

Sources within the Reform Party of Syria, which built the station, tell
CRW that the schedule is planned to expand after a period of testing.

Although the sources would not confirm the location of the tx reports in
the Israeli press point to a facility in Cyprus[sic] allegedly funded by
Washington. "We are not funded by anyone," one source close to the
station's operations said. "Radio Free Syria is being built independently
with the support of Syrian businessmen and women who want openess and
peace."

Radio Free Syria will be the first station run by Syrians, themselves,
that promotes democracy, freedom of conscience and respect for minority
and human rights. Its planners expect this message to serve as a burst of
fresh air for their target audience, which is subjected to state-run
propaganda that serves to bolster the ruling Ba'ath Party as well as
Islamist programming preaching intolerance broadcast by such outlets as
The Arabic Radio and Hezbollah's TV and radio stations. Live roundtable
discussions are planned as well as comedy and entertainment that all
listeners can enjoy - Muslims, Christians, Arabs, Kurds and Assyrians.

"This is just the first phase," a planner said. "The regime's feet is
about to be put into the fire."

Listeners are welcome to contact the station by e-mail

The station also has a Web site that contains programming that can be

Egyptian/French singer Dalida "Salma Ya Slama" which means we got back
again.

Followed by an OM with the freq and time of txion.

1805 UT, Announcement "the Reform Party of Syria will grant a 100.000 USD
for any Syrian citizen who would help in locating the mass Weapon
destruction locations in Syria; all the details will be dealt with in
confidentiality! ID by YL

1810, a program called Urgent Message - reading what supposed to be a
message by a Syrian citizen to the Syrian President Dr. Bashaar Al Assad
critisizing the current situation in Syria.

1821, ID by a YL followed by a very famous song by a Syrian singer
Sabah Fakhry.

1823, ID by an OM followed by a report about the role of the opposition
parties in Syria time being, critisizing the Ba'ath party and its leaders,
also mentioning the opposition group The Islamic brotherhood, and the
dictatorship of the Syrian regime.

1827, a Musical break, followed by another ID by an OM. 1830 UT, a man
shouting "a very famous man" and a lady asking "who" it turned out to be a
program talking about the profile of "Jameel Al-Assad", the brother of
the late Syrian president Hafez Al-Assad and his role in the corruption
taking place now in Syria.

1840, an OM introducing an Assyrian lang song. 1845 UT, an OM with the
mail bag program called "Menkom wa Lakom", that's from/to you welcoming
the listeners and all their Q about the radio station and he promised to
increase the time of this within the coming weeks.

The listeners' Q were answered by Mr. Malek Assaf, the director of Radio
Free Syria, i.e., where is the HQ of the Reform party; a fax from a Syrian
who wants to work as a reporter for Radio Free Syria, a fax by a listener
who's criticizing the station and its goals and programs, and at last a

1859, a YL "with this we have come to the end of our txion"; OM "we hope
you enjoyed it and looking forward to meeting you again" with mx in the
back ground.

The tx went off the air. Well, it sounded like the other Syrian opposition
radio "Arabic radio" when it comes to the directing of the programs and
the usage of all these mxal breaks. They had the programs of this week's
txion and the previous ones on
<http://www.radiofreesyria.org/Programs/rfs_friends.htm>

I checked the first txion as I was away and couldn't hear it and I found

accept to publish it. That'd make her very happy. Her nickname is
X-Blue Berry as girls here don't like to reveal their real names culture

Here's her report:

18:13 OM was reading the interior Syrian news.

18:20 OM announced the start of a program, "More than one point of view"
("Akthar men wagehat nazar" in Arabic); He said it's going to be repeated
again next Friday at 9:00 Damascus local time!! Syrians living outside
Syria were discussing their points of views regarding the political
situation in Syria.

18:31 the same OM announced the end of the program (guess his name is Rami
Abd el Rahman)

18:32 OM announced the repetition of the program again next Friday!!!

18:33 YL said "Sout Soria el Hora" with a song at the background, then
"soria el Hora"

18:34 OM announced the start of another program called "lekaa el esboo"
that's "This Week's Meeting" this week the president of the Reform Party
in Syria, Mr. Faried El Ghaderi, was the guest. They were discussing some
questions sent to the program by Syrians living inside and outside Syria
about the current Syrian affairs

18:40 the fading and distortion increased.

18:56 the OM announced the end of the show, and Mr. Faried promised to
have another episode recorded to the station. Then another OM announced
end of txion with mx at the background.

Dear  xx,
hi, the test txion started and within a few days the audio stream on the

countries of Syria. will keep you posted with more nx later. B.rgds

so as you can see...no specific answer was given..but that part of "the
station is covering Syria and some of the neighboring country is a bit
interesting..does this mean that they have MW TX ?

....YES! but hope he replies soon.

Farid al-Ghadiri, leader of the US-based Syrian al-Islah [Reform] Party,
yesterday announced that Radio Free Syria will begin txions tomorrow,
31 March, at the latest, to both Syria and Lebanon. In a statement posted
on the party's web site, Al-Ghadiri said that the radio, "which is
funded by Syrian businessmen", will begin txion from Cyprus[sic ?].

The radio carries the same name as the Radio Free Iraq, which is funded by
the US Govt, though Al-Ghadiri insists he is innocent of receiving foreign
funds for the radio. US authorities declined to comment on Al-Ghadiri's
activities and denied any connection to the radio despite reports on a
meeting between Al-Ghadiri and a State Department official. Asked by
Al-Safir to comment on the report, Steve Sish [as transliterated], head
of the Syria, Lebanon Desk at the State Department, refused to comment.

On its web site on the Internet, Radio Free Syria says that one of its
objectives is to emphasize "the benefits of democracy and free
expression" and "to prove the honest intentions of US policy in the
Middle East and stress the importance of dispensing with the culture of
violence".

Hi, I got the following from the Reform Party of Syria:

Reform Party of Syria Press Release.
Reform Party Launches Radio Free Syria.
WASHINGTON, April 6, 2004 / Press Release/
The Reform Party of Syria announced today the start of its Radio Free
Syria cybercast in Arabic on a test basis. Real broadcast will air shortly
after the test period ends. One can listen to the programming on - failure
- and soon on - failure - .

The intent of Radio Free Syria is to educate the Syrian public on issues
of democracy, freedom, and cessation of violence. RFS will be entertaining
and educational to appeal to a large cross section of Syrians. According
to the CIA fact book, Syria boasts about 4.15 million radios by 1997
giving RFS the largest medium to communicate.

In the programming line-up, RFS will broadcast nx on Syria and Lebanon on
a daily basis. RFS will also air special cynical and humorous shows and a
new play, written by one of the foremost Syrian play writers, to start in
the real live broadcast. The "yet-to-be-named" play will address the
misery of the Syrian people in contrast with the corruption of the Assad
regime.

RFS is managed by a team of 32 people, some of whom are inside Syria
providing Cyprus{sic} operations with the latest news.

One of the missions of Radio Free Syria is to consolidate the reformists
inside Syria with the reformists pressuring the regime from outside and to
build on the concept of the Syrian Democratic Coalition that met in
Washington DC on September of 2003. The Syrian Democratic Coalition goals
are to build a "New Syria" with all Syrian parties and ideologies
represented in a decorum of non-violence under a real democracy.

I checked the site - failure - and as soon as you get there you'll hear an
ID of the station (Sout Syria Alhurra) - Voice of Free Syria repated bu an
OM and YL saying today and everyday around that time (no time mentioned)
you'll hear us Sout Syria Alhurra.

The content of the Page is prerecorded programs about some of the Ba'ath
Party members in MP3 format, one is talking about the ex Syrian president
Hafez Al Assad, and another one is about his brother ref'aat Al Assad that
program is called ID card, it's edited by Malek Assaf (I got an e mail
from him before in Arabic with a promise to send me more details about
RFS) and the program is presented by a YL called Dina Karam.

According to their text above the word Cyprus operations was a bit catchy
which means that the studios or the TX is going to be in Cyprus. and as
usual no freq giving yet.

hopefully more to come soon about that one.

USA   VoA News via WRMI. Just caught the end of VOA News on 9395 kHz at
about 02:15 UTC. Something new? How often? - Richard Langley

Again, last night (2 June UTC). Noticed it ending at about 0210 UT. VOA
News is typically only five minutes long, so when it's broadcast by WRMI,
I guess it can start (inconsistently) anytime after the start of the hour.

3185, June 2 at 0157 UT, WWRB reactivated on 90mb with Brother Scare, //
but not synch with 7570 kHz WRMI. This goes with resumed daytime frequency
9370 kHz heard earlier June 1; like previous operation these two likely
adding up to 24h/7d blather from brother. He's currently obsessed with
some event on June 4. 3185 kHz is registered 24h available for WWRB, but
no doubt used at night only, exact switchover times with 9370 kHz as yet
unknown, but the latter not supposed to start until 1300 UT despite my
hearing it as early as 1218 UT.

9395, UT Saturday June 3 at 0203 UT, instead of Oldies, WRMI is running
Ask WWCR, instead of Viva Miami, the one about NASB meeting discussing
DRM, etc. So there will be no VOA 5-minute news inserted this quarter-hour
as others have reported more than once. 0224 UT recheck "greatest music of
all time on 9395 and 9455 kHz, WRMI". So the second frequency has been
added, except during this hour it's BS.

[later]  9455, June 3 at 0226 UT, Brother Hysterical via WRMI has dredged
up yet again his rant of more than a year ago against yours truly,
asserting that he doesn't give a damn what Mr Glenn Hauser thinks; refers
to a date May 13, as I had merely reported the fact that some of his
frequencies were not appearing as scheduled; and also goes ballistic about
the issue of whether Napoleon ever ruled Michigan, which was something
Harold Frodge brought up, not me.
Whoopee!
Here we go again. In his extremely repetitive scheduling, could be this
will now be appearing regularly at approx :25 past various hours. But this
time he interrupts himself at 0228.5 UT to talk about imminent Pentecost,
but instead of June 4, the 2017 date he has been running into the ground,
he mentions live services we are invited to, the weekend of June 10-11-12!
I looked it up and the last year when Pentecost was on June 12 was 2011!!
That should surely confuse his already clueless psychophants.

USA   BBG FY 2018 budget request reflects key priorities amid spending
constraints.

This includes reducing, and in some cases, eliminating certain
language service capacities

I.e. reducing VOA Kinyarwanda/Kirundi, Kurdish, Dari/Pashto, Laotian,
Thai, Indonesian. Terminate Latin America (except Haiti) services
altogether, unless forces can be joined with OCB in whatever new
constellation. English programming is to be "consolidated", whatever
that means in practice (is anything besides African programming still
left anyway??)

Mandarin radio is to be reduced at both VOA and RFA in favour of
digital services.

RFE/RL: Belarusian radio and Radio Mashaal will be terminated, savings
are to be made in Russian radio. Radio Farda as a radio service is to
be reduced as well, as is VOA PNN, again in favour of digital
offerings.

Alhurra / Radio Sawa: Savings in nighttime news.
"Afia Darfur" to be terminated altogether.

Further reductions of SW and MW distribution. No further details
specified in the budget justification (that's indeed how they call it
now) document.

Repairs to be made at Greenville, Tinian, Tinang, collapsed Sao Tome
mediumwave mast to be replaced as well. Kuwait to be further expanded
to take over African and other services "for legacy shortwave
audiences", replacing third party facilities.

They project a decline of the weekly audience of VOA from 237 to 141
million, mostly by losing the 60 million Hispanic ones.

White House sheets show that they intend to keep the BBG funding at
these 680 million USD also during the coming years, i.e. no
compensation of rising costs anymore.

And no change of the plans for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting
and the National Endowment for the Arts: For 2018 a residual budget to
wind them up, then just " "
(Kai Ludwig-D, dxld May 24)

I got the word that all shortwave will be eliminated in the new
budget. Greenville may hang for a year due to OCB but I'm not holding
my breath. I will keep you informed as I'm a union official and the
information should be sent to me first, I hope.

I talked to my fellow union rep and he said we aren't going to fight
this this time. I guess everybody is tired and we can't fight the
stupidity. They wonder why the listenership drops when you play Katy
Perry records to the victims of the hurricane in Haiti and call it
special programming. I remember as a young man how good VOA
programming was.
73 (Glenn Swiderski-NC-USA, dxld May 25)

USA   BBG/VOA 2018, "I got the word that all shortwave will be eliminated
in the new budget":

No such hints at all in the related document, instead mentions of antenna
repairs at Greenville-NC-USA, Tinian-MRA and Tinang-PHL:

USA    Tour of VOA Greenville, NC

I took a brief vacation last week along the coast of North Carolina. It
was relaxing and fun to be sure. I was also aware of and slightly curious
about the Voice Of America shortwave site, a slight distance inland in
Grimesland, NC.

Thus, I made arrangements visit the facility on my way home. Chief
Engineer, Macon Dail, was gracious enough to give us the guided tour. The
facility is an engineering marvel. The scale and complexity is enormous.
The entire facility is scrupulously maintained. Many of the transmitters
and other equipment have been upgraded to make them more functional. I
tried to take meaningful pictures, but in many cases, they simply do not
to justice...

USA/[ARGENTINA non]  11580, on Friday June 2 at 1358 UT, WRMI with jazz
music fill after RAE French hour, 1359.5 UT WNYW-style ID, 1400 UT once
again RAE Spanish for the second day at this hour, opening with its usual
music downbeat, intro as "primera edicion del primero de junio", i.e.
repeat of the Thursday 2200 UT on 5950 kHz.

Now we see that the WRMI sked grid has been updated to show RAE Spanish at
1400-1500 UT Monday-Saturday on 11580 kHz. This presumably compensates for
the originally planned 0000-0100 UT on 7730 kHz, which has not been
implemented, to the relief of a variety of programs in that span.

Due to confusion last week about the timing for RAE's DX program in
English, I am listening continually UT Saturday June 3 from 0100 UT on
WRMI 9395 kHz, VG. This week it lasts from 0114 to 0125 UT. I seldom quote
from on-air DX programs since they hardly ever have any newsworthy
material not already published in DXLD/yg. But to get us started with this
show, here are my complete notes about it for the record:

Opening title seems to be "actualidaddx.com.ar". Asks for reception
reports with recordings [it's always loud and clear here]. DX news mostly
comes from Observer, Bulgaria but not credited. Clips of each item are
however added, perhaps from remote receivers or online if not receivable
in Argentina. Music bridges between each:

Deutscher Wetterdienst, 6180 kHz at 20 UT in German with 100 watts
[no, 10 kW per WRTH].
V. of Oromo Liberation from Nauen to Ethiopia, Wed/Fri/Sun 1700-1730 UT
on 15420 kHz with 100 kW, and "hamming" from Ethiopia.
Belarus on SW via Germany new sked, 22-24 UT on 3985 kHz, 1 kW.
R. Xoriyo in Somali via TDF ISS France at 1600-1630 on 17630 kHz, 500 kW,
Tue/Sat, with hamming
DP0? Seewetter, via Kall at 0730-0800 UT on 7310 kHz with 1 kW;
1200-1230 UT on 7310 kHz in German Mon-Fri.
Mexico, XEINFO 1560-AM full ID clip, to illustrate Grupo Radio Centro
which has closed its 790, 1150, and 1030 kHz stations, consolidating
programming on 690 and 1110 kHz.
CNN reports ISIS claims credit for attack on TV station in Jalalabad, east
Afghanistan, killing 6 [no clip]. VOV and Cuba meet at ICRT. Production by
Arnaldo Slaen, edited [translated?] by name uncopied, presented by
Fernando Farrias. Outro [only] refers to program as "DXers Special", every
Saturday. [Perhaps will be repeated on UT Tuesday again, regularly?]

After music break, 0129 UT plugs a new program "talking with listeners"
based on their comments to <rae -at- raeargentina.com> but doesn't say
when it airs. This time gives frequencies only as 5850 & 7730 kHz, which
apply to the 07-08 UT repeat, not now. 0131 next program is 'Stories
of the Bicentenary' about early racism, voiced by Mirian.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, hcdx and dxld June 2 / 3)

USA   9395  UT Saturday June 3 at 0203 UT, instead of Oldies, WRMI is
running Ask WWCR, instead of Viva Miami, the one about NASB meeting
discussing DRM, etc. So there will be no VOA 5-minute news inserted this
quarter-hour as others have reported more than once."

VOA News appeared later in the hour last night. Started just before
0245 UT running until about 0250 UT. The bulletin was identical to that
available for the hour on the VOA News website. Seems VOA News can show up
at anytime during at least this hour on 9395 kHz.

Meine 15560 kHz Erklaerung:
das ist eine Intermodulation die sich am Sendeplatz von Vatican Radio in
SMG Santa Maria di Galeria bildet, dabei moduliert sich das
VoA Somali Programm von 12055 kHz Kanal auf ein Mischsignal im 19
Meterband
auf 15560 kHz zusammen.

Etwas knifflich und signalmischungs-maessig fuer eine Intermodulation
unueblich.

4 besten SDR / Antennen remotes im Perseus Netz
in Liverpool, DARC Amberg-nur Port8015, Westungarn
und in Doha Qatar gehoert werden.

Von 16-17 UT sendet SMG auf
