GERMANY/KUWAIT/TAJIKISTAN and CHINA jamming    Re: UNID ID on 15700 kHz

Good day.
I managed to hear at remote KiwiSDR in Russia today at 1615 UT and the
programming was not the same as what I was hearing via a German KiwiSDR at
the same time.

The station that I was hearing via Russian Kiwi at Izhevsk Russia
disappeared around 1620 UT when I was monitoring a Kiwi in Germany.
The short clip is at 1615 UT via Izhevsk on 15700 kHz.
The mystery continues.

By the way, 15700 kHz here in Alberta today is totally jammed.

GDR  [EASTERN GERMANY history]   Radio Berlin International

I wish to thank all concerned for making the complete Sabine Schereck
feature article on Radio Berlin International (RBI) available to read
on your website:

<http://bdxc.org.uk/rbi.pdf>

This is most interesting to me as among the many International SW
broadcast stations, RBI was one that I too was a listener of but only from
1988 onwards,
unfortunately. I was a member of the RBI DX Club but only achieved an H50
RBI diploma as time ran-out, with the station's closure.

I too have a small collection of RBI memorabilia - programme guides; DX
Bulletins; GDR Review magazines ; other fact booklets and magazines; stamp
sets; stickers; badges and pennant (as in Sabine's article); 1989 and 1990
large pictorial wall calendars and other calendars; a large wall poster;
New Year cards; letters from and copies of my correspondence to;
as I had received off-air cassette recordings and, of course, QSL cards.

Interestingly, the QSL card that I have, which is over- stamped "Last QSL"
and showing Broadcasting House, Berlin, is different to that featured in
Sabine's article. Anyway, just like you to know how much I appreciate the
article and Sabine's research work for it.

KOREA REP OF
MOST ACCURATE STANDARD TIME STATION IN SOUTH KOREA TO OPEN NEXT YEAR

Posted on April 30, 2018 by Korea Bizwire in Consumer Technology.

According to the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science
(KRISS), a new long-wave station will open early next year in Gyeonggi
Province.

DAEJEON, Apr. 30 (Korea Bizwire) - The most accurate standard time
station to date in South Korea will begin its test broadcasts sometime
next year. According to the Korea Research Institute of Standards and
Science (KRISS), a new long-wave station will open early next year in
Gyeonggi Province.

Using a frequency between 50 and 100 kHz
{mentioned 65 kHz fq longwave, despite Japan is on 60 kHz, wb.},
the new station will be able to transit electromagnetic waves over a
distance of more than 1,000 kilometers, which will enable one radio tower
to cover the entire country without having to rely on antennas [sic].

The most accurate standard time station to date in South Korea will
begin its test broadcasts sometime next year.

The new facility will allow people to check the standard time of Korea
across the Korean peninsula as long-wave stations can reach those
indoors and underground unlike GPS signals.

"With one long-wave station, we can broadcast the standard time for
the whole of Korea. Given the historical context of the unification of
weights and measures, we believe the facility will serve as a
strategic point that provides the standard time for the Korean
peninsula in the future," a senior official at the KRISS said.

WTFK? 50-100 kHz that narrows it down! "Most accurate"? Does
that mean they already have inaccurate ones? Well, there's HLA at
Daejon, 2 kW on 5000-AM, 24h, which has not been DX-reported in ages,
off?
Per WRTH 2018 which already has TFK! "65 kHz, KRISS planning test
transmissions from the KBS site at Yeoju". "Without having to rely on
antennas"?? Neat trick.
(gh, dxld May 1)

The article mentions a reception range of 1000 km. I wonder what power
that might equate to and what might be the odds to hear this station
in the Pacific Northwest [sic] (of the United States)? Regards,

"... On March 31, last year, a satellite navigation system (GPS) radio
wave attack, which is estimated to have been conducted by North Korea,
occurred.

As a result, domestic aircraft and 110 vessels were affected,
including the malfunction of GPS plotters (navigational devices such
as navigation systems) operating in the Yellow Sea.

When GPS radio disturbance occurs, obstacles occur in the mobile phone
base station, the airplane being operated, the ship, etc., to receive
GPS signals normally.

In particular, since the present time synchronization network receives
GPS signals and operates, if GPS satellites fail or GPS jamming (radio
disturbance) attacks occur, there is a possibility that various
communication devices may fail. For this reason, there is a need to
establish a self-sustained time synchronization network that is not
affected even if GPS is disabled.

The Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science said on February
19 that it plans to establish a broadcasting station for long-range
standard time with the aim of trial broadcasting in February 2019.

Standardization is currently testing long-wave standard time trial
broadcasting with the goal of transmitting a 200 km radius from
the KBS Yeoju AM Transmitter site, which is now closed, using the
vacant frequency of 65 kHz band. The construction is scheduled for
September.

Additional information can be added to Korea Standard Time to be used
in various applications such as smart home appliance, smart grid, and
intelligent transportation system (ITS), and it is expected to be
applied to disaster situations such as weather, earthquake, and
radiation.

In Japan, long-wave broadcasting is also used to automatically adjust
the traffic signal system or insert a chip into a taxi meter to
prevent the late night rate premium.

"The long-wave broadcasting will become a radio infrastructure for the
people's public interest." In Korea, too, it is essential to provide
long-term standard time to reach the rank of "time advanced country."

KUWAIT   Around 2015 UT I am getting a JBA signal on 17550 kHz, sounds
like Arabic music. Seems R. Kuwait has finally activated and/or started to
propagate this long-dormant broadcast to Central & Western North America,
per HFCC database:

"17550 kHz 2000-2400 UT zones 6,7 KBD 250kW 350deg 0 216 daily
250318-281018 Arabis KWT RKW MOI"

Could be better further east, altho aimed further west.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld May 4)

Soon replies mentioning "17750", I hope typos for correct 17550 kHz:

At 2117 UT Nothing 'seen' heard on 17750 kHz unfortunately on my access
points, not in Europe, - nor in NY state.

15540 kHz Radio Kuwait. DRM signal just for nothing, 20.30 UT on May 4
R Kuwait En scheduled, heard S=9+20dB in NY state USA remote site.
(Wolfgang Bueschel, hcdx May 4 / 5)

Nothing here at 2323 UT? 73 (Mick Delmage, Alberta, ibid.)

Just after I mentioned they were still good at 2315 UT and clicked send,
they went off (or way down) around 2318 UT May 5.
Still a weak carrier but could be anyone
(Moman Edmonton-Alb-CAN, ibid.)

KUWAIT   Okay Glenn, sorry, checked the wrong fq yesterday night.

Now 17550 kHz ist a S=9+20dB signal here in western Europe / southern
Germany, Radio Kuwait in Arabic, female presenter etc. At 2031 UT May 05.

Excellent audio, now refurbished transmitters and antennas, and replaced
of mid 90ties SW gear units now. 20 kHz wideband signal.

The meeting to discuss Transmitter location and other very important

Pictured from the left clockwise is Dr Simon Keens,
Deacon G.E. MacAvin, TE Elder Jonathan S Meyer, Deacon Nathaniel A Meyer
and Heinz Gugger, planning engineer.

The meeting was very productive and the requirements of Ampegon and the
WMLK representatives were answered.

Progress. The required operating tubes for the Ampegon 300 kW set were
ordered this week by our builder in Switzerland. Electrical operating
parameters have been provided from WMLK for the HV input powers
necessary for the assorted parts required in building the new set,
such as the transformers.

The building measurements were also reviewed to allocate room for the
new set. Originally the building was designed to accommodate two
Ampegon 300 kW sets. Ampegon requested a larger space from us if
possible. Almost two-thirds of the new building has now been allocated
for the new transmitter.

The office/Control room has now been completed. The TX room is being
wired for current and future requirements such as air compressor, work
bench, electronics repair module etc.

By His grace progress continues to be realized at the new WMLK
building. More to come when the weather breaks. We will keep you
updated. Thank you for your encouragement and support!

The book is compiled by Gayle van Horn who used to write for the
US magazine 'Monitoring Times'.
I reviewed the previous edition in Radio User, March 2018.

You get over 400 pages of listings, radio articles and updates for the
cost of a magazine. Although it is written mainly for a US market
I think British and European DXers would find it useful.
