We have two 100 kW transmitters and two antennas in Anchor Point. Both
transmitters are from Continental Electronix. One is a model 418 F and
the other a 418 G. They are similar in design, but the 418 G is fully
automatic and uses digital control circuit and servo systems.

The 418 F is analog. Each cost about a million dollars.
Their cooling system is water. As for the antennas: they're made
by TCI Communications and are 4 x 4 x 4 curtain types, meaning each
has four dipole elements by four stax by four arrays.
All three have a horizontal polarization.
They're capable of 5 to 12 MHz only.

KNLS is powered by commercialpower.
In order to operate one 100 kW transmitter, the power should be
able to deliver at least twice the power, or 200 kW. The excess is
used for motor blowers, a water pump and other ancillary equipment

6035 kHz, BBS, on May 3, tuned in at 1309 UT and surprised to hear an
announcer underneath the usual FM99 (PBS Yunnan). Yes, BBS with a greatly
extended schedule today; able to ID at 1317 UT, with clearly heard unique
indigenous music and cut off at 1317* UT;
as usual bothered by jamming spur of 6045 kHz (National Unity Radio).
Only wish I had tuned in earlier
(Ron Howard-CA-USA, May 4)

May 4 - An unusually good day for BBS (6035 kHz), especially considering
the usual FM99 (PBS Yunnan) and the North Korea jamming spur QRM; second
day with much longer than normal broadcast; 1114-1300* kHz. Highlights:

1114-1200 UT: In English; mostly pop songs (Led Zeppelin with "Stairway To
Heaven," etc.), except announcers 1120-1138 UT and with *1139 UT start up
of FM99 (PBS Yunnan) and at *1145 UT start up of N. Korea jamming spur.

1230-1247 UT: Clearly in vernacular with interview.

1247-1300* UT: Unique indigenous music/chanting/singing.

Still a challenge to hear BBS, but here is my four minute audio

University Enschede Twente SDR in Holland, altho HFCC has something
brokered by RMI via ISS, FRANCE on days 1/3/5 Sun/Tue/Thu.

Ivo Ivanov assumes it's clandestine. But presumably a mistake, as Jeff
White says Alameda Bible Fellowship is running at 1700-1730 UT on
Mon/Wed/Fri.

Jeff White explains, so it's not really clandestine, and does not specify
language(s); and days of week contradict previous info (Glenn, April 25).

This is the same program we have to West Africa at 1930 UT Mon/Wed/Fri
on 11860 kHz. It goes out at 1700 UT on Mon/Wed/Fri on 13660 kHz to
East Africa. The program is Alameda Bible Fellowship, and the same program
is on various times per week from (WMRI) Okeechobee Florida to other
targets in English and Spanish.

INDONESIA   V of Indonesia during Ramadan, bad frequency 4750 kHz ...

Hi Ron, they are on 4749.943 kHz, so very probably Makassar.
(Mauno Ritola-FIN, wor May 2)

Hi Glenn, so is this why the Voice of Indonesia carrier was not heard on
May 2, when checking before 1210 UT, on 3325 kHz.?
If VOI is gone from 3325 kHz, why didn't they reactivate the local Pro 1
RRI Palangkaraya programming on 3325 kHz ?

Wonder what the exact frequency is for this new VOI frequency. In the
past Makassar was on the unique frequency of 4749.95 kHz ?
(Ron Howard-CA-USA, wor via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews May 02)

INDONESIA   On a follow-up on 04 May at 1323z (just a bit ago),
the 3325 kHz VOI via RRI Palangkaraya (on south Borneo Isl.) has a fine
carrier-level on peaks at sunrise today (far stronger than 3320 kHz KRE),
but just dead-air again on my Benmar Nav 555A. Careful nulling and
watching for minimal meter-readings/signals indicate a DF bearing of ~290
deg. azimuth, so it must be them... Days and days of 10 kW blasting into
nothingness and no modulation! Good they have cheap electricity... ;-) (or
else they are doing a signal phase-shift ionosphere study of HF prop.)

LITHUANIA   From the announcement on the website of the Belarusian
editorial board of Radio Liberty
(Google's translation into Russian and my correction :-):

"On April 30, 2019, at the mid-wave frequency of 1386 kHz, our signal will
last sound. Radio Liberty, after almost 65 years of daily broadcasting,
finally leaves the radio waves. The radio ends, but the spoken word and
music remain in Freedom's arsenal. From radio waves, we switch to other
channels of audio transmission. We will continue to be listened to on the
global Internet - and in streaming broadcasting, and on podcast platforms
- as well as via satellite."
<https://www.svaboda.org/p/7152.html>

As of 03.00 UT, on May 1, at the frequency of 1386 kHz, there was a
farewell transfer of the Belarusian edition (repeat of the previous day's
program).

612 kHz  The World Service for the Russian Orthodox Broadcasting Radio
Radonezh ceases medium wave (AM) 612 kHz broadcasting in Moscow from 24:00
on April 30, 2019.

This was reported by the Director General of Radio Radonezh, Yevgeny
Nikiforov, due to the dismantling of all powerful broadcasting in Russia,
which includes the long-wave, short-wave and mid-wave range. "It is a pity
to part with the audience with which we have been together for almost 
30 years on these Easter days.

After all, "Radonezh" - the first independent radio station in Russia,
aired also on Easter days in 1990. Thank God not so bad. We will stay on
the Moscow air on the frequency of UHF-FM 72.92 MHz. Where we broadcast
around the clock. However, for this you need to purchase receivers with an
extended range in any electrical goods store or at the Radonezh stand at
Orthodox fairs. You can also listen to us in excellent quality on your
phones in every corner of Moscow and cities around the world by
downloading the free Radio application Radonezh "."

Radonezh "will also continue to broadcast on medium wave 684 kHz
in St. Petersburg from 19.00 to 22.00 daily.

At this difficult time, we ask for prayers and the help of all to whom the
patristic heritage is dear, to which we have remained faithful throughout
our existence. HELP:

The Milcom Files - TSM Edition - Now Available on Amazon.

As it always seems to be the case, recent world events continue to draw
many radio listeners into their radio shacks to tune in on the action
using their shortwave radios, software defined radios, and programmable
VHF/UHF scanners.

In many cases monitoring the HF/VHF/UHF radiospectrum offers the radio
hobbyist an opportunity to hear what is really going on behind the scenes
without the filters imposed by news media outlets.

Most radio listeners quickly learn that when the world has a crisis,
disaster or tensions rise between countries, the military will usually be
the first organization called upon to intervene. It pays to monitor
military frequencies when international events heat up. Monitoring the
military can offer some of the most productive and rewarding listening you
will ever experience using your radio. The good news is you do not have to
live close to a military installation to hear these communications. But
you do need to learn where and when to tune in military communications.

Mention the words "Monitor the Military" and most radio hobbyists will
immediately think of military air shows, military aircraft flybys or a
whole host of other activities that can be heard via radio frequencies.
There is a big radio frequency spectrum out there to monitor if you know
where to listen, you can eavesdrop on some of the most fascinating radio
communications you will hear on a scanner or shortwave radio.

Larry Van Horn N5FPW, has been a radio hobbyist for more than 55 years
listening to world events and monitoring military radio communications. He
has spent over 33 years documenting activity in the military radio
spectrum in his monthly Satellite, Utility World, and Milcom (Military
Communications) columns in the pages of Monitoring Times, Satellite Times,
and The Spectrum Monitor magazines. During this time, he has published a
treasure trove of military communication monitoring information.

All his early MT columns have been published into two eBooks by his
company TeakPublishing. The first two books in the Milcom Files series
cover his columns published in Monitoring Times and have previously been
published at Amazon.

Book one of The Milcom Files covers the columns published from 1998 to
2006 and sells for US$5.99 at

<https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077NN7RQ5>

Book Two covers the period 2007 to 2013 and sells for US$6.99 at

<https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077NQXH3C>

Teak Publishing is pleased to announce the release of their latest
Kindle eBook - The Milcom Files - The Spectrum Monitor edition by this
Amazon bestselling author.

In 2017 Larry joined the Spectrum Monitor writing staff as he continues to
chronicle military monitoring in his new monthly TSM Milcom column. Now
for the first time, he is publishing all his monthly TSM Milcom columns at
Amazon.

This eBook incorporates the first two years of his TSM Milcom columns
written from September 2017 to the end of 2018. These columns have
documented HF military frequencies (both foreign and US), and VHF/UHF
spectrum military frequencies, mostly for U.S. based monitors. This third
book in the series has more than 53,400 plus words, and over 200 pages of
frequencies, callsigns, monitoring tips, and how-to style articles.

Information includes military satellite frequencies, U.S. FAA Air Route
Traffic Control Center frequencies, military base profiles, foreign
military HF frequencies, airshow frequencies and flight demonstration
teams, radio listening equipment, and antennas, and a lot more.

As an extra bonus to buyers of this new edition, they will get his
exclusive 2019 TSM Air Show Monitoring Guide published in the March 2019
edition of Spectrum Monitor as part of this new eBook.

This The Milcom Files - TSM Milcom edition eBook is available now on
Amazon at

<https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RN1ZGLJ/>

for US$4.99.

If you are interested in monitoring military communications and own a
scanner, shortwave radio,or have an Internet connection for web software
defined radio (SDR) monitoring, the MilcomFiles TSM 2017-2018 is a must
reference on your radio shack shelf.

This book is being released internationally. Amazon customers in the
United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan, India, Canada,
Brazil, Mexico and Australia can order the eBook from Amazon websites
directly servicing these countries.

Fine Tuning Proceedings

Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s several members of the Fine Tuning
group of DXers compiled collections of articles, written by DX experts,
and published them in a series of books, known as "Proceedings". There
were articles on receivers, antennas, propagation, peripheral equipment
and other topics.

These books have been difficult to obtain. DXers tend to keep them in
their libraries.

Now these articles are available as PDF documents, freely downlaodable
from the Ontario DX Association IO Group. Look under Files. The articles
are grouped into five folders: Receivers, Antennas, Propagation,
Peripheral Equipment and Features.

Spread the word, so others can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of
the writers of these excellent articles.
