ALASKA   9550 kHz  KNLS religious broadcast in Russian, Febr 28, at 1524-

AUSTRALIA   5045 kHz Febr 26 at 0847 UT.

Bay Islands Radio, just missed their start up; tuned in at 0847UT, to hear
pop songs; random lis-tening; best ever reception since reactivation; had
only been hearing non-stop pop songs re-cently with no announcements at
all, which conforms to what others have been reporting.

But Febr 26, heard with positive YL DJ, so must be a relay of Island FM;
too much QRN (static) to hear positive ID; anomaly 0935-0942 UT, with just
open carrier / dead air / no music; 0942+ UT was fairly easy to ID songs
(The Troggs - "Wild Thing," Joan Jett - "I Love Rock 'n' Roll," Eric
Clapton - "I Shot The Sheriff," The Rolling Stones - "Honky Tonk Women,"
Fleetwood Mac - "Go Your Own Way," etc.), till 1120 UT tuned out. Very
respectable reception for a low powered station !

Hello, - For technical reasons, the ORS Moosbrunn transmitter will not be
able to broadcast the program "Carte Blanche a Sheila" this evening. We
just learned about it this morning. This issue will therefore be postponed

to us every month.

CANADA   CIDX Messenger magazine items, of March 2023.

In This Issue: We have 76 pages for you this month. We have the
"In Memoriam" presented at Winterfest 36.

Our Vintage receiver this month is the Sony ICF-2010.; World of Utilities
profiles U.K. utility stations. Chris Lobdell presents his final column as
editor of Pirate Radio Scene. Brian Penney takes over next month.

Not Just Listening has an update on the 2023 WRTH.

Technical Topics features listening aids; and News, Notes & Skeds.
The latest information on developments within CIDX from the CIDX Board
of Directors at CIDX Headquarters.

Welcome to the March 2023 CIDX Messenger, the post 36th annual
SWL Winterfest edition.

The NASWA 36th annual Winter SWL Festival is now in the books. Before any-
thing, on behalf of just over 250 people who participated in this year's
Zoom event, I'd like to thank "Festmeisters" Richard Cuff and
John Figliozzi whose tireless efforts pulled together another extremely
successful and smoothly run event, with an excellent array of presenters
and topics. Congratulations and thanks to both of you!

[...]  We had the opportunity to meet old friends and make some new ones,
with many people making it to their very first, and hopefully not their
last, Winterfest.  [...]  We were very pleased to see no less than
86 CIDXmembers participate in the Fest this year.

Once again this year, NASWA -the North American Shortwave Association, and
CIDX, agreed that those in attendance who are not CIDX members will re-
ceive a free sample copy of our Messenger. Those who are not NASWA members
will receive a free sample copy of NASWA's Journal, and those who are
members of neither organization will receive a free copy of each club's
bulletin. So, we welcome all of those 165 or so people who will be check-
ing out our March edition.

One feature each year at Winterfest that always draws a lot of attention
is my presentation of the "In Memoriam" tribute to those in our hobby and
in the radio broadcasting field that we have lost during the year. 

On the pages following this Board report, I'll reproduce the list and obi-
tuaries of those who have passed on since last year's Winterfest.
We honour and pay tribute to them.

Although based in Canada, CIDX membership is open to radio enthusiasts
anywhere in the world. We'd love for you to take a look at what we have
to offer.

In Memoriam 2022 at Winterfest 2023 by Sheldon Harvey.

One feature each year at Winterfest that always draws a lot of attention
is my presentation of the "In Memoriam" tribute to those in our hobby and
in the radio broadcasting field that we have lost during the year.

Richard Measham - March 22, 2022 - Via Chris Greenway on behalf of the
BDXC Board.

We regret to report the death on 22 March of Richard Measham, a long-time
friend of BrDXC-UK and a well-known figure to an older generation of DXers
and listeners. A professional radio monitor, Richard had a prominent
career at BBC Monitoring as head of its World Schedules Section and Editor
of the weekly BBCM publication World Broadcasting Information (WBI). [...]
Speaking Russian and German, he was a key part of BBCM in the latter part
of the Cold War, retiring in 1996, but maintaining his interest in the
world of global communications.

KAJ BREDAHL JØRGENSEN - April 15, 2022 - via Anker Petersen-DEN ex DSWCI :

Via Richard Cuff & Germaine Ledoux (spouse) - March 28, 2022
Thomas Alexander Ledoux of Chalfont, Pennsylvania passed away in his
home on April 18, 2022. He was 81 years old.  [...]

Pertti Ayras - May 23, 2022 via Risto Vahakainu-FIN.
One of the absolute top DXers of Finland, Pertti died at the age of 80. He
was fond of DXing the western hemisphere, first Latin America and later
also North America on mediumwave. And later FM DXing of the European sta-
tions. He was active from the 1950's up to the end reporting and QSLing
top radio stations in 8 decades !  He made his last DXpedition to the
Finnish Lapland in 2021 when he was 79.

Jerry "Doc" Plummer - July 24, 2022, via Robert James Finn.
Jerry passed away in Nashville at the age of 68. Doc's true passion was
short wave radio, and he was a very active member of the National Associa-
tion of Shortwave Broadcasters (NASB). Doc served many roles with NASB and
was elected President in 2022. He was Frequency Manager at WWCR Interna-
tional Shortwave Radio in Nashville since 2007. He hosted or cohosted over
400 ASK WWCR programs with his longtime friend and associate Brady Murray.
Doc was elected to the HFCC Steering Board and served in various roles for
many years.   [...]

Roberto Scaglione - August 1, 2022, via EDXC.
The well known and respected Italian DX'er was the presenter of
AWR's Italian DX Program for a few years. Here is a message from Roberto
Pavanello. "Have a good trip Roberto, I will always remember that meeting;
in Palermo with Giovanni Lorenzi and Dario Monferini, a visit to Radio
Margherita and a visit to Via D'Amelio. We will miss you, I will miss you
but I dare to imagine you talking about the radio with Marconi up there in
the ether where the radio waves are reflected. Ciao Roberto".  [...]

Dario Monferini - October 22, 2022 - Via Nexus-IBA.
Dario Monferini died after a long illness in Milano. He was best known for
being a DXer and editor of the PlayDX newsletter that he founded in 1975.
Dario suffered a few strokes since June 2020 and became isolated during
COVID. Unfortunately, his medical situation never improved as he spent
COVID isolated inside the rehabilitation centre and could not get back
onto his feet for the last two years. In late October 2020, Dario had a
second stroke, but his mind remained strong and active. [...]

Dario Monferini became a DXer and started listening to foreign Medium Wave
stations in 1970. After that, he upgraded his receiver and got passionate
about receiving DX signals on Shortwave from South America. [...] 

After that, Dario started collecting QSL cards, pennants and stickers from
stations broadcasting on Medium Wave and Shortwave worldwide, not only
stations broadcasting in Spanish as he did at the beginning of his career
as a DXer. He reputedly had over 30000 such items of memorabilia (hope-
fully someone in Italy will archive or preserve this).  [...]

Dario had been a member of the European DX Council for several years.
Dario Monferini has also been writing for the Italian magazine Monitor and
cooperated with the World Radio & TV Handbook (WRTH). Dario has also been
a radio producer. For some time he edited a radio edition of the Play DX
magazine that was broadcasted over IRRS-Shortwave on 9815 kHz back in 1989
and 1990.

Prof. Arnaldo de Jesus Coro Antich - CO2KK  -  January 8, 2023.
Known to listeners as Arnie Coro, he passed away at the age of 80. He was
well-known for his twice-weekly program "DXers Unlimited" on Radio Havana
Cuba, Cuba's English-language shortwave service.
His amateur callsign was CO2KK.

Coro became interested in radio as a child and at the age of 12 joined the
Radio Club de Cuba amateur radio association. In 1957, he began working as
a journalist at Canal 7 (CMBF-TV). During the Cuban Revolution, he was one
of the founders of Radio Havana Cuba in 1961, working to help set up the
station's first transmitter ahead of the Bay of Pigs Invasion.

In 2017, Coro was honored with the National Radio Award by state broad-
caster Radio Cubana. Over the years, Coro produced a number of science and
technology radio programs for Juventud Rebelde, Radio Progreso,
Radio Taino and Radio Metropolitana, as well as for the magazine Juventud
Tecnica. He also authored the 1984 book La Guerra Radial de Los Estados
Unidos de America Contra Cuba (The United States' Radio War Against Cuba).

Coro was always passionate about ham radio. He was an active member of the
Federacion de Radioaficionados de Cuba, and he worked tirelessly to help
other broadcasters overcome technical problems. He also was sought to
highlight the important role of amateur radio operators during emer-
gencies, and, at the time of his death, he served as emergency coordinator
for Area C of Region 2 of the International Amateur Radio Union.

He was an assistant professor at the Raul Roa Garcia Higher Institute of
International Relations and served as vice president of UNESCO's Cuban
Commission for the Preservation of Audiovisual Heritage.

VIOLET PETERSON - March 31, 2022 - via Adrian Peterson, AWR.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce the death of my dear wife Violet,
at the age of 88 in Martinsville Indiana state, March 31, 2022. Violet was
appointed as the Administrative Secretary for Adventist World Radio, and
she typed all 574 scripts for the original AWR DX program, Radio Monitors
International. In addition, she typed, and hand wrote, and sometimes
signed, several thousand QSLcards on behalf of AWR-Asia and Radio Monitors

Myra Oh - NZ - April 27, 2022 - via Adrian Sansbury, Radio New Zealand
& Mickey Delmage.
Adrian Sansbury of Radio New Zealand Pacific reported that Myra Oh, former
host of the Mailbag program passed away earlier this year. I often listen-
ed to her show answering listeners' letters, DX reports from Paul Ormandy
and of course updates about radio news in the Pacific with Adrian
Sansbury. She was loved by family members, friends and the Radio NZ Inter-
national community and listeners.

GARY BAUTELL - November 23, 2022.
Gary Bautell was an American military radio broadcaster living in Germany.
He broadcast for the American Forces Network (AFN), where he has worked
since 1962. Having worked in Germany for over 50 years, Bautell has become
involved in promoting German-American relations. Since 2010, he has served
as president of the Federation of German-American Clubs. A native of
Bay City, Michigan and alumnus of Michigan State University, Bautell join-
ed the American Forces Network in November 1962, when he held the rank of
private in the United States Army. He had previously been stationed in
Germany while working as an Army engineer, and re-enlisted after working
as a DJ in Houghton Lake, Michigan. He initially worked at AFN headquar-
ters in Hoechst Castle {AFN bcast house location since end of WW II in
1945y, Frankfurt/Main. wb.}
He most recently was AFN Europe's news director.

All the 49mb frequencies are off. Something's always wrong at RHC.

11760 kHz, Sunday March 12 at 0705 UT, RHC is still on here, and nowhere
on 6 MHz band, in Esperanto, now moved one hour earlier for the next
octomonth, since as a running dog of Yanqui Imperialism, Cuba has just
gone on EDT to match Miami. At 1458 UT recheck, 11760 kHz with a local

opening announcement, and to 15140 kHz which has really been // for years.
The clueless Esperantists claim it's Sunday at 0800 UT on 6100 kHz, where
it rarely appeared, and at 1600 UT on 11760 kHz, only. The third airing is
even more iffy, having shown up on different frequencies at 2130 UT in-
stead of 2230 or 2330 UT; will it now be 2030 UT ?

English broadcasts are expected to appear one UT hour earlier now, start-
ing with 1900 UT, on 15140 kHz at least. Except to "Africa" at 2200 UT in
winter normally changes backwards to 2300 UT in summer. Has been on 11880

"One year of war in Ukraine: a timeline of the Cuban regime's support for
its Russian ally - Havana has tried to ease the UN's pressure on Moscow
and has echoed Putin's disinformation in Latin America.
DDC Madrid 01 March 2023 - 01:47 CET

Russia's war in Ukraine is one year old. Since February 24, 2022, more
than 42,200 people have died and 14 million have been displaced in what
Vladimir Putin defined in his speech as a "special military operation"
in defense of the Donbas region. Beyond the human and material conse-
quences for Ukrainians, the first territorial invasion of a sovereign
state in Europe in 80 years has had international repercussions, from
food to energy.

What the western democracies condemned from the very first moment, and
continue to today, with heavy sanctions against the aggressor, was
justified by the Cuban regime, also from the beginning of the conflict.

Havana has been in charge of reducing pressure on Moscow exerted by the
United Nations, and has disseminated the disinformation spouted by Putin
across Latin America ..."

GREECE   ERT 1404 kHz Komotini on border to Turkey to reactivate ?

I am afraid not. I have not heard anything lately concerning ERT Komotini.
(Christos, PAOKth; MWmasts March 7)

Re: ERT 1404 Komotini to reactivate.

H Christos, has there been anything more about this ?
(Thanks, Mauno Ritola-FIN,  MWmasts March 7)

According to a post on ertnews.gr of 21 Febr 2022, ERT is planning on
refurbishing and reac-tivating the MW station at Komotini on 1404 kHz:


21 Febr 2022 - Google translation:

The Middle{mediumwave} of Komotini 1404 kHz again in the "air".

The management and the employees of the station express their gratitude to
those who contributed to the continuation of the transmitter of the Middle
Ages on the ERT radio in Komotini.

In their announcement, the journalists and the staff of ERT Komotini,
thank the Management of ERT, who understood the situation and gave the
green light for the complete upgrade of the transmitter with the purchase
of a new lamp [tube ?, wb], the local MPs of the Prefecture of Rodopi,
Evripidis Stylianidis, Dimitris Charitou, SYRIZA, PS-Ilhan Ahmet -KINAL-,
who "immediately responded to our request for support and activation for
the continuation of the operation of the transmitter of the Medium Waves
1404 Milliocycles / second", but also to the representative D of ERT,
Aristotelis Metaxa, "who provided us with support and documented it with
sound arguments".

They also thank the listeners "from Southern Bulgaria, from Asia Minor
coasts, from Eastern Attica, Evia and Peloponnese, as well as the Aegean
islands, but also Crete, who did not stop calling us and asking when they
will listen to the program of ERT from the Middle of Komotini", as stated
in the announcement.

According to the Management and the employees of ERT, "Each of them acted
in their own way, making it clear to everyone that the antenna of ERT in
Komotini, which is located at the eastern end of the border and spreads
the voice of Greece, in "In the Balkans, on the coasts of Asia Minor, but
also in all the Aegean islands, it had to continue to operate."

East type songs; the Shalawat Tarhim prayer (0909-0916 UT), which was
written and recited for the first time in 1959 and is given before the
call-to-prayers; followed 0916-0919 UT, with the Maghrib (sunset) Islamic
call-to-prayer; 0919+ UT, more EZL songs; 0929 UT, perhaps an ID (poor

JAPAN   The NHK World website has "The service provides broadcast in
18 languages. The live streaming service in Japanese will end
on April 2, 2023."


(Mike Terry-UK, wor March 10)

I just found this in the about NHK World page at:


(or via Google Translate at:


NHK World Radio Japan

Main domestic news, current affairs programs, sports broadcasts, music
programs, radio dramas, and other programs of Radio 1 Broadcasting will be
broadcast at the same time as in Japan, conveying a variety of information
about Japan. [.....]

Simultaneous distribution of NHK World R. Japan will end on April 2, 2023.

I'm not quite sure what is meant by "simultaneous distribution will end",
but I suspect that it's not good news.
(Alan Roe, Teddington-UK, wor March 10)

Re:  NHK World Radio Japan.
Well, what this machine translation gives as "simultaneous" is apparently
the term that in English goes "linear". So "linear distribution ends", and
this is a technocratic paraphrase for "radio will be turned off".

{The translation "linear streaming" reflects wishful thinking I fear.}
(Kai Ludwig-D, wor March 10)

JAPAN   Re:  NHK World Radio Japan SW news change from April 2023.

This might not be as bad as currently suspected;
? means "same time" aka simultaneous
and ? means broadcast or internet streaming (Distribute + Faithfully, it's
commonly used with computer terminology for sending / delivery failed etc.
...). NHK typically use ? for shortwave broadcasts as it only means
a broadcast or program (Emit + Send).

I have a few thoughts on this, especially as the date doesn't align with
the frequency changes:
Currently NHK World Japanese is relaying NHK Radio 1 during the night-time
with the ? music hours and talk hours show. Perhaps instead they will
broadcast repeats of the daytime shows during the night instead?

Another more probable possibility is that they'll cease streaming
NHK World Japanese language online (A lot of it is not receivable out-
side of Japan currently due to licencing of the music so perhaps it has
low listenership in Japan online and isn't worth the upkeep).

Note that this is in the "?" "Japanese language radio" section and not
the "?" Foreign Language Radio" section where the information for NHK
World Japanese shortwave is labelled as "Japanese Service (?" in the fre-
quency schedule.

I'm holding out hope that this is unrelated to short-wave radio

PHILIPPINES   Bring back the Philippine megawatt ex-1143 kHz.

USAGM's megawatt medium wave transmitting station at Poro, in the Philip-
pines, reportedly produced excellent reception in Taiwan and the adjacent
coastal areas of mainland China. It was taken out of service just a few
years after its relocation on the peninsula to the area of the former
Wallace airbase.

The new facility was evidently well "mothballed" when it was turned off.
So why, given the U.S. government's recent moves toward reinforcing its
military facilities in the Philippines because of escalation of the
implicit threats to Taiwan by the Chinese government, hasn't USAGM brought
back into service this excellent vehicle for communication into China (and

Re:  Bring back the Philippine VoA megawatt unit ex-1143 kHz.
That interference came from new high power signals in mainland China. It
is understood, at least by those responsible in Washington, that these
signals had been put on 1170 kHz for that very purpose. The PRC had
effectively neutralized the transmitter, thus a decision was made to
abandon it.

I guess it wasn't brought back because it didn't perform too well.
I remember listening to 1143 kHz and later 1170 kHz in those day and I
could hear was 24/7 interference. (QTH Hong Kong)

RUSSIA   Radio centers in the Far East - in Razdolny and Tavrichanka.
In Russian.

A tender has been announced for the demolition of a complex of antennas,
communications and other structures in  the southern part of Radio Station
No. 1 in Tavrichanka, Primorsky Krai:


Earlier, at the end of 2022, a similar tender was held for the demolition
of the northern masts of the RVS-1. In both cases, the customer is RTRS.

Thus the Vladivostok broadcasting station near the village of Tavrichanka,
which operated from 1940 to 2016, will soon finally go down in history. In
Soviet times and after it, until 2014, state and international radio sta-
tions were broadcast from the radio center on long, medium and short waves
(for example, Mayak, Yunost and Voice of Russia).

In the 1990s and 2000s, commercial broadcasters also joined them:
"VBC" 612 kHz, "New Wave" 738 kHz, "Lemma" 783 kHz, "Studio OK" 1476 kHz
and some others. And from 2000 to 2016, FM broadcasting was carried out
from RVS-1 at 107.7 MHz ("O'Key Studio" / "Humor FM" / "Mayak").

In the late 2000s commercial stations finally went to FM (VHF-2 band, aka
VHF CCIR). And in 2013-2014, VGTRK and Voice of Russia, later renamed
Sputnik, abandoned medium-wave broadcasting. The radio center was soon
mothballed and disbanded.

but on archive of 3 July 2007 - an well-known contributor Lev Lytovchenko
wrote about the Razdolnoje bcast center among other things

Recently I read on the Shortwavesites SW Radio Transmitter Site Archive
704, 705 for April 2008 about some confusion with the names Vladivostok -
Razdolnoje transmitter site. Because you were involved in the debate of
this topic, I decided to write to you, though it's a bit late.

My sister in-law, who left Russia for Canada about 10 years ego, lived in
Ussurijsk quite a long time and she knows that region pretty well. And
here's what she told me:

Most of the place-names there still bear Ukrainian background -
Razdolnoje, Tavrichanka, Chernigovka, Poltavka - etc. - as a result of
Stalin's repression of the Ukrainian nation for the active resistance
against collectivization in the 30's when hundreds of thousands Ukrainians
were forcibly moved to the Far East and Siberia {and Kazakhstan}.

The name Tavrichanka comes from Tavria - an ancient name of Crimea, now !
Ukraine, and Ukrainian toponymic Razdolnoje could be translated like wide
open area. A big village, Razdolnoje is located between two cities of
Vladivostok and Ussurijsk about 50 km from each other and famous for being
the longest village.

About 10 years ego my sister in-law could see the huge radar complexes
installed there during the Cold War as part of the defence system to scan
the Pacific region [OTHR on HF, presumably gh]. Not so far from them there
are SW Broadcast transmitting antennas.

It's necessary to mention that this area always in Soviet times
chronically suffered from a shortage of energy (electricity particularly)
and even now little changed. But it was never for military objects like
radar. This is possibly why nowadays 19 out of 30 hours weekly
transmission come from Razdolnoje.

I think that the source of confusion with the names was because of the
geographical location of Razdolnoje just in between two cities. The minor
town of Razdolnoje may gravitate to the major city of Vladivostok rather
than to Ussurijsk just in the minds of Russian bureaucrats. In accordance
with Administrative Division both Razdolnoje and Tavrichanka neither
belong to Vladivostok nor to Ussurijsk. But Tavrichanka is closer to

That, I believe, was in the minds of the Russians who gave the registra-
tion data about their yearly transmissions. When I read, for example,
on the A09 season - 7330 kHz - 2 hours from Vladivostok - Razdolnoje and
2 from Ussurijsk - I'm sure that all 4 hours of transmissions are coming
from the same transmitter in Razdolnoje, despite that they put slightly
different coordinates.

The last could be explained by remains of former Soviet mentality to give
just false coordinates for the sites on official maps. So, I can give my
verdict: 'Vladivostok - Razdolnoje' and 'Ussurijsk' are synonyms for the
same transmitter site in Razdolnoje. I hope, this information would be
interesting to some DXers.

unlike other stations so could RNE fix that?

Justin implies don't hold your breath but passes on the info. Then he re-
trieves previous mail from long-time listener Greg as far back at 2011y
who was listening then on 6055 at 0000 UT. Justin says the SW receivers he
got were a Sony ICF-7601 and a Panasonic RFB-65. On Dec 1, 2012, the
English broadcast was cut without notice to the staff or listeners,
management's way of finding out whether anyone cared. Greg did, and it was

USA/HAWAII   DX Nostalgia column by RFK from Sweden on pages 11 to 14 in
SW Bulletin #2023:

Before we had the Internet many of used to tune in to this station to get
up to date information regarding solar activity which of course is very
interesting for a DX-er. These "geophysical alerts" were about to be dis-
continued in 2011 but this decision was retracted and these reports from
the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) kept on to be
broadcast on SW at 18 minutes past the hour.

WWV is located near Fort Collins, Colorado state and was established al-
ready in 1919 by the Bureau of Stand-ards in Washington, D.C. Originally
located in Maryland it moved to the present site in 1966. The services
provided by the station can be seen listed on the QSL card below received
by Lars Ryden LR in 1953. Both WWV and LR are still active on the bands.

Station WWVH in Kauai, Hawaii provides a similar service since 1948 and
shares the frequencies of 2500, 5000, 10000 and 15000 kHz with WWV. In
order to avoid interference between the two stations the anten-nas of
WWVH are beamed west but still it happens that due to ionospheric condi-
tions both stations can be received on the same frequency at same time.

This is especially common on the west coast of North America. In order to
avoid confusion the two stations use different voices for their announce-
ments. WWV uses a male voice and WWVH a female voice. The voice on WWVH is
that of voice actress and singer Jane Barbe (1928-2003). Her voice is
known from several commercials, voice-overs and voice mail systems.

situation on Vanuatu (?); the usual RV promo after the news; much weaker
than normal and mostly unreadable.

(WRTH via DX Magazine 3-2023, March 13)

das neue WRTH habe ich am 10. Maerz interessiert durchgeblaettert,

hatte aber wie am Wochenende ueblich, neben Funkerei,Lebensmittel shoppen,
wandern im Naturschutzgebiet, WWDXC  TopNews editieren - schon wieder
120.000 Bytes fuers DX Magazine wwdxc erarbeitet / selektiert, und deshalb
bisher keine Zeit zur tiefen Einschaetzung des Buchprodukts dazu erreicht.

Resumen WRTH 2023 auf den ersten Blick:

1. - grosse Leistung (!), in 6 Monaten mit neuem Team eine FACH - Buch-
     produktion zu erarbeiten, und deren Datenbanken mit 100%ig Zuordnung
     zu mischen !   Respekt dafuer.

2. - Schriftauswahl in Art und Groesse - zum Ausdruck von 850 Seiten - ist
     teilweise eine Katastrophe,

3. - die 30 Seiten RX Produktebeschreibung am Buchanfang Seiten 11 bis 44
     werde ich trotz guten Sehvermoegens nicht lesen koennen,
     { warum wurde nicht Schriftgroessenauswahl von Seite 10 ? genutzt }
     weil mir persoenlich die Schriftauswahl/Groesse viel zu klein geraten
     ist, wie im Apothekerbeipackzettel.

     In einer Kalkulation von 850 Seitenumfang, sollte ein kleines Mehr
     fuer eine entsprechende lesbare Schriftgroesse, welche in den letzten
     60 Jahren gebraeuchlich war, weiterhin wuenschensert sein.

     {muessen die vielen FM fq Tabellendaten in dieser Datendichte sein,
     kann man nicht das Handbook auf 600 Seitenumfang kuerzen ?? }

4. - ?  Nutzen fuer DXer nicht allseits umfaenglich erkennbar - ?

     Das Buch ist praktisch ein 90 %ig Buch als UKW / FM-List aus deren
     Datenbank angereichert weltweit als erweitertes Buchprodukt zu sehen,
     das brauche ich als DX und MW-Nutzer bei auftretenden Fragen ueber-
     haupt nicht,
     ausserdem 'versteckt' es in den nationalen Frequenzdaten-Tabellen die
     eingestreuten wenigen LW,MW,SW Frequenzen, welche noch uebrig geblie-
     ben sind von den weltweit Broadcastaussendungen, diese muss man mit
     der Lupe suchen.

     Solche FM Frequenzen brauche ich nur bei FM - Ueberreichweiten im
     Juni/Juli aus England, Skandinavien oder Iberien, 
     oder gar im Urlaub auf Mallorca oder Kanaren um den lokalen Urlaubs-
     sender zu erkennen - oder auch für die Kreuzschiffahrt-DXer von TUI-
     oder Arosaschiffen vor der Anlandung im Zielhafen.

5.   Gewoehnungsbeduerftig ist die ITU-Laenderkennzeichnung, bei unter-
     schiedlichen Herkunftslaendern, wie BC-House Produktionsort, Einmie-
     tung oder von den Relaysites aus den eigenen Telecommunications-Netz,
     z.B. IBRA Schweden origin Dari Programm, fuer den TWR Sender im mus-
     limen Abstrahlungs-Umfeld, in Uzbekistan, Kyrghyzstan, Armenien,
     oder Taiwan Richtung KRE, statt lediglich 2-facher ITU Land-Angabe.

     IBRA Dari Zentagi aus Schweden, über 5130 kHz KGZ Bishkek site

     BBC  U.K., SNG, Kranji  usw.    
     oder aehnliche BBC oder US AGM relays Angaben weltweit.

6.   Diese spezielle Target-Zone Stationen Tabelle ab Seite 667 numeriert,
     vertauscht falsch innen im Buchbund plaziert / ausgedruckt (!)
     d.h. der Clandestine, Veiled stn. Inhalt mit Targetbezug,
     ist sehr gut geloest,
     da hat (?) Mauno Ritola-FIN (?) -- wahrscheinlich -- erstklassische
     zuordnende Routinearbeit geleistet.

deshalb - nochmals mein Eindruck zum Buch:

1. - grosse Leistung (!), in 6 Monaten mit neuem Team eine FACH - Buch-
     produktion zu erarbeiten, und deren Datenbanken mit 100%ig Zuordnung
     zu mischen !   Respekt dafuer.

und zum Schluss der Umschlag-Karton mit der neuesten ETON Werbung fuer den
neuen HD / DAB mode Receiver,

erinnert mich an das exzellente E1 Geraet, den Juergen Martens mir 2005 in
F'hafen zur HAM-radio verkaufte ...
in der Reihe Drake RX4 vom ss-Bauer Bamberg in 1975, der Barlow-Wadley rx
Made in RSA by Miramo of Gunter Langweige, der SONY 2010 von Universal
Radio in 1986, seligen Angedenkens.
