New Religious Shortwave Broadcaster from Illinois to use DRM

The FCC accepted for filing on May 27 an application from Parable Broadcasting, LLC, a company based in Norfolk, Virginia, to build an international shortwave broadcasting station in Batavia, Illinois, specifically, “to serve areas of Europe that may be authorized by the Commission.

The planned broadcast content includes religious and educational programming as well as data content provided by third parties. The applicant is positioning the proposed station to take advantage of the recent push by the National Association of Shortwave Broadcasters to develop and provide content for the growing DRM [Digital Radio Mondiale] market.”

According to the filing, the station will use two 15 kW transmitters from Amplifier Systems, Inc. and utilize a two-section log-periodic antenna of 18.0 dBi gain, mounted 184 feet above ground. The transmission line, made by Comscope, will be 5-inch diameter 50-ohm coaxial cable 550 feet long. The document states that the station will broadcast only in DRM mode. The filing indicates the station will “operate between 5.9-15.8 MHz international shortwave bands coordinated with the FCC and HFCC [High Frequency coordinating Committee].”

According to drawings submitted by the engineering firm, the log-periodic antennas will be a wire configuration supported by two towers that will allow, a small area of land that replaces a rhombic antenna twice the size and achieves a low take-off angle while operating on a wide frequency bandwidth (4-30 MHz), achieving over 18 dBi power gain.

WORLD OF RADIO SCHEDULES
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

Both updated as of June 30

** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, June 30 at 2030 I happen to tune across here as the Radio Tirana IS plays via WRMI; soon canned sign on claiming it`s only on internet, as if this SW relay be inconsequential or even unknown at HQ! Well, it is just about, as the original 6-day-a-week schedule has been pared down and down to only one, on Tuesdays, presumably ceded to paying customers. Off the side here, this one anyway is unusable, S9-S7 but too much noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey June 30 at 1329: 14850 S9-S6 fluttery; 14400 JBA carrier algo; 15130; 12880 JBA; 12870 S9-S7; 12190 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7254.9v, June 30 at 0550, VON is on already with open carrier except for some hum; 0559 recheck in IS and sign-on Hausa; after missing a few nights. This does not deter a ham QSO on 7253-LSB at 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 11769.903V, June 30 at 2033, VON in unknown talk, Hausa scheduled, S9-S7 but noisy and undermodulated? Often detected in the afternoons here, always way off-frequency, but haven`t measured it in quite a while. Carrier slightly unstable too (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.3, June 30 circa 1430 UT on caradio, on the way to Primary poll to advance Sen. Inhofe`s opposition, Oklahoma news where normally only fringe remnants of somethings, KS dominant; non-ID as ``Z-92``, soon obviously the Woodward station which is only 10.5 kW H&V ERP, altho ``Z-92`` is not in the WTFDA DB:
``KMZE 92.3 WOODWARD OK 10.5 368.0 m 36-16-23 99-26-45 TALK/SPORTS TRI STATES NEWS TALK SPORTS``.
Searching 92.3 on ``Z-92`` (hyphen required) would lead instead to stations in FL, NE. Minor tropo enhancement westward (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5890, June 30 at 0552, WWCR-4 is off again, no Brother Scare here. Daytime channel 9980 also gone, June 30 at 1743 check. So maybe the transmitter be broken, or Overcomer`s virtually 24/7 buyout be over already in less than a full month? Had not paid attention to whether the previous few hours a weekday with otherhuxters remain on #4 air: 9980 M-F 20-21; 5890 Tu-Sa 02-04. But June 30 at 2025, 9980 is also OFF. Maybe we shall see a revised program schedule after July 1, mostly blank (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 30 at 2221, VOT is detectable, but very weak and unreadable vs no RTTY, but local persistent birdie, talk rather than music fill. Try UTwente, and find excellent reception, `Turkey`s Tourist Attraxions` about Mardin, ending into music at 2223 --- one of the talk programs still being aired if not produced, probably evergreens. Mardin is in the southeast, i.e. Kurdistan and has a majority-Kurdish population who spell it Mêrdin. I`ll bet TRT didn`t emphasize that or even mention it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2040 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue June 30 at
0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA here, good at UTwente SDR. Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts: http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

Thanks this week for financial support from Gerald T. Pollard, Raleigh NC, who sends a generous quarterly contribution marking Solstices & Equinoxes, by check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WRMI: see ALBANIA [non]

** U S A. WWCR: see SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

** U S A. 93.1, re my strange reception of KRVN 93.1 over a 319-mile path, there is of course a #3 possibility for propagation mode --- meteor scatter. I did not consider this at the time, since it lasted at least a minute and did not display any rapid fading, both of which are uncharacteristic of MS --- but the ``in-between`` distance is more appropriate, and a fireball might have lasted that long. I wonder if there is any reference of such events and their precise locations and timings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7755-USB, June 30 at 0544, weak 2-way with ``cambios``, but don`t recognize any other Spanish. Do they also say ``cambio`` in Tagalog or any other languages? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Oromia National Media - Arraata Biyyoolessa Oromiyaa organisation

Oromia National Media-Arraata Biyyoolessa Oromiyaa - which organisation behind the new Oromo language broadcast ?

two decades ago we had some similar veiled Oromia Independence Clandestine shortwave radios, one from USA brokered by Ludo Maes Belgium, Oromo Voice Radio, Raadiyoo Sagalee Oromoo, mostly via TDF Issoudun France;

also via DTK Julich / Wertachtal bcast center these days in 2004 - 2006 year 15650kHz  Voice of Oromia Independence (via Julich) via WRMI Jeff White Miami FL USA Broker.

The other from West Berlin-Germany location via DTK/MBR Julich / Wertachtal / Nauen Germany ... SBO Sagalee Bilisummaa Oromoo or Voice of Oromia Liberation Front


NO FACEBOOK video play access ... just negative try.

as no facebook member, tried the odyssey to get the imprint, location of Oromia Clandestine somewhere, but always pressured to went-into new Facebook account - as the only way.

so see the youtube video instead https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cllQFjP3txU

Keeping AM radio alive

World Music Radio (WMR) has been broadcasting on 5840 and 15805 kHz since 2018. Coming soon is 927 kHz.  And Radio208 has been broadcasting since December 2019 on 1440 kHz and since May 2020 also on shortwave 5805 kHz. It has cost a lot of time, energy and money – but it has been and still is great fun – keeping shortwave and mediumwave alive. The cost of the transmitters (some 15000 euro), aerials and transmitter sites is one thing. Another thing is the running cost. The two big expenses are: Music royalties: 450 euro each month; Power costs: 1300 euro each month (when all transmitters are on full power). If you could help keeping WMR and Radio208 on the air, your support would be highly appreciated. All amounts are welcome. Please use this link: paypal.me/worldmusicradio or make a bank transfer to Hartvig Media, Hovedvejen 17, DK 8920 Randers NV – IBAN DK1093310007162081 – SWIFT KRONDK22

All contributors donating at least 25 euro will receive a WMR mouse pad (23 x 18 cm). Please mention your street address.

Propagtion outlook from SWPC Boulder, June 29

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
22 - 28 June 2020

Solar activity was very low over the reporting period. Several areas
of plage with intermittent spots/pores were observed but none
persisted long enough to be assigned an active region number. No
Earth-directed CMEs were observed in available coronagraph imagery.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
normal background to moderate levels.

Geomagnetic field activity ranged from quiet to unsettled. On Jun
26-27, isolated periods of unsettled levels were observed around a
shift in phi angle, which suggested influence of a SSBC. The
remainder of the reporting period was quiet under ambient solar wind
conditions.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
29 June - 25 July 2020

Solar activity is expected to be very low over the outlook period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to be at normal background levels.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be quiet to unsettled.
Unsettled conditions are likely on 30 Jun - 01 Jul and 06-07 Jul in
response to multiple, recurrent CH HSSs. The remainder of the
outlook period is likely to observe quiet conditions.

Glenn Hauser logs June 29, 2020

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, June 29, I am checking unusually before 1300; at 1258, 13070, 12870 in Chinese; 1259, 12800 JBA carrier; 13550 with 5+1 timesignal to 1300*.

1302, 15130, which is vs VOA Mandarin via Philippines this hour only.

At 1354, 12870; 12190 vs CODAR; 11120, 10920, 10820 JBA; at 1358, 14400 JBA carrier; 1359, 9230 & 9215 music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, June 29 at 0614 check, VON AWOL from both. Must be disheartening for the program producers back in Abuja or Lagos; or do they even know or care about the weakest link, ultimate SW situation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, June 29 at 1650 and still at 1815 UT, KLGB-LP Enid in dead air, unusual. This would have been helpful if there were any DX on 94.1 or 94.5. Most of the time it`s just playing gospel rock, not even predicating. It started out from a local church and one can still see it on N Van Buren, but unseems anything else is going on in that building. LP tower also hosts 99.9 LPFM. Website provided by radio-locator is blocked by Firefox as security risk. Says ownership is now Covenant Life Ministries; searching for that leads to a different address in Enid. I think the station is just plugged into some satellite feed, except when it fail (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. Re my 9410 BBC via SAO TOME log, ``Followed at 0606 by one of their COVID-19 programmmes, but ID as BBC OS. What means that? ``OS Conversation```` --- Richard Langley replies:

"Outside Source": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_OS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28298-CW, June 29 at 0118, beacon in slow CW, including
K5TLL/B, EM51gg, good between fades. WJ5O roster shows:

``28.298 K5TLL C HATTIESBURG, MISSISSIPPI # 25W, VERTICAL New Freq 14 Dec 08``

No FM DX now, but from opposite direxion, Es MUF also provides WWV on 25000 at 0124 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28224.5, June 29 at 1402, at least enough sporadic E MUF to re-audiblize beacon K5GJR/B plus uncopied grid square. It is:
``28.2245 K5GJR C CORPUS CHRISTI, TX # 5W, VERTICAL``
``K5GJR USA flag USA Randy L Bates, Corpus Christi, TX 78415 USA``

28209+, June 29 at 1407, VVV VVV VVV DE K7EMX/B
``28.2093 K7EMX C KEARNS, UTAH # 3W,VERTICAL New 5 August 2016``
``K7EMX USA flag USA, PAUL R LARSON, KEARNS, UT 84118 USA``

Kearns is a SW suburb of SLC. He has the largest qrz.com page I`ve ever run across: huge supply of stills and videos, many political and/or funny: https://www.qrz.com/lookup/k7emx Several mentions of his 6m beacon but unfound anything about 10m  (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2040 monitoring: I was not aware of it at the time, but ``From, the desk of Richard’s listening Post,    Richard Lemke, City: St. Albert, Province: Alberta, Country: Canada Radio: JRC NRD-535 HF, Antenna: random long wires in the trees

Dear Glenn: heard World of Radio rescheduled now on 7730 kHz at 0030 June 29 UT (I don’t know if this was the first time heard or longer period this frequency I gave [up?] on monitoring),

USA, WRMI, 7730 kHz, 0030-0059 UTC, heard World of Radio #2040, 0031, 0044 signal S 7 (453), June 29 UTC (Lemke, Richard -AB)  Good Listening, June 29, 2020``

Yes, I see it now in the System D schedule for UT Mondays, without notice a significant change since last checked. (BTW it still shows imaginary WORings at 1030 on 5950, several times 21-22 on System D without freqencies, Wed 21 on 7780, Sat 1130 on 9955.)

I reconfirm: UT Mon June 29 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, JBA weak vs high storm noise level, but at 0143 good via UTwente, VG via Maine SDR; and also on WRN webcast.

Also confirmed UT Mon June 29 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, again JBA vs HSNL, but 0240 VG at Maine.

Also confirmed UT Mon June 29 from 0303 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5130, good at Rochester NY SDR; ``The Show Is Over`` intoned JL until 0301, then a couple minutes of A51 wildness, before WBCQ ID and WOR start.

5130 direct is useless; Blitzortung map shows lots of storms
including: SW NE to S MB; E AR; MN/WI; SC; VT/NH.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 29 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, good at TWR Bonaire KiwiSDR.

Also confirmed Monday June 29 from 1800:37 on IRRS 7290 Bulgaria as monitored via UTwente SDR; tuned in at 1757 to open carrier vs RTTY wobble on 7291, evitable on LSB, and inevitable splash from 7280 Vietnam, 7300 Iran; a few seconds before 1759 cut on modulation which I immediately recognize as within a `Wavescan` as Ray starts talking about Gough Island. IRRS also stix fragments of WOR on air as filler unpredictably. That`s chopped off a few sex before 1800 for IRRS sign-on, the n/a one recommending synch tuning to reduced carrier USB which this is not; FSN Washington very quick headlines and then WOR. Running OK past 1810; and 1820 recheck;

(but sudden thunder here thrice around 1824/1826/1828 despite none predicted, and no storms anywhere near per Blitzortung which does also detect them: popups, and hasten to close down antennas and computers.) Next:

0100 UT Tuesday   WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

Thanks this week for financial support from Gerald T. Pollard, Raleigh NC, who sends a generous quarterly contribution marking Solstices & Equinoxes, by check in US funds on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980, June 29 at 0227, JBA carrier, presumed still/again WRMI few watts of exciter only as marker, in case they want to resume 100 kW upon it. I can`t make out any modulation, nor at 0615, but Anker Petersen, Denmark, reported earlier to the NASWA Flashsheet:

``4980 USA. WRMI, Okeechobee, FL, 0150-0155, 25.6. English talk, music and song. 15231 // 5010 (25333). (Anker Petersen, Skovlunde, Denmark. Equipment: AOR AR7030Plus with 28 metres of longwire`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5050, June 29 at 0226, WWRB with gospel huxter at S9+30/40; only active frequency and only on weekends; the most underutilized of US SW stations, wonder why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5890, June 29 at 0620, WWCR-4 is OFF, so no TOM, sob! But he`s still on squealy 3215; 5935 DGS is on but weakish; 4840 VG with OTR drama, instead of scheduled Overcomer (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. I recently remarked that `Wavescan` did not have a regular themesong; in fact it does, as in script for June 21 edition, it`s: ``Opening Theme (00:00) Birthday Serenade: Willi Glahe``

But it was surprisingly replaced by something else when I listened June 27 at 1501 on KVOH 17775, probably first advance airing of June 28 edition: ``Opening Theme (00:00): Youtube: Quarantine Anthem`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7315, June 29 at 0128, horrible squeals coming out of WHRI during Voice of Vietnam relay, making own audio hard to follow; spreads 7305-7325 but somewhat elbowed by VOA/Vatican violating SOCAS on 7305. With BFO I try to zero beat the multiple peaks to approx.: 7309.4, 7313.2, 7313.7, 7316.3, 7317.5, 7319, 7321 as they beat against each other as well as the fundamental. Tuned directly to 7315.0, one can also tell modulation is distorted; first thought it was Spanish instead of scheduled Vietnamese. 7315 squealing still at 0225 during WHRI`s own gospel music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 93.1, June 29 at 1642 UT on caradio, I`ve been alert for Es, altho when I departed, DXMAPs were not showing MUFs 88+ MHz. Among several semi-open frequencies, My 93.1 in Hutchinson is getting CCI, which at this time totally overtakes it with PSAs about Nebraska, mentions Rural Radio Network (as on KRVN AM 880 et al.), then ``93.1 the River`` ID. So it is per WTFDA FM Database:

``KRVN-FM 93.1 LEXINGTON NE 100.0 kW H&V, 271.2 m HAAT, 40-41-48 99-47-18, COUNTRY 93.1 THE RIVER``

Trouble is, distance city-to-city is 514 km = 319 statute miles --- too close theoretically for sporadic E, at least without a huge high-MUF opening; yet far too far for groundwave lacking a tropo opening. A fluke of some sort or other, but which could it be? (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM [non]. See USA: WHRI for horrible squeals on 7315 relay

Trasmissione test da Woofferton

Questa mattina (29 Giugno 2020) alle 1047UTC (s/off alle 1055) ho ascoltato una trasmissione test con invito ad inviare il rapporto di ascolto a transmissiontest@gmail.com sui 9885kHz con SINPO 55555. In tempi brevissimi ho ricevuto la risposta: si tratta come già segnalato da altri in passato di prove sul tx di Woofferton. Qui un estratto della risposta:

----------

Hello Davide,

Thank you for your report and I confirm the details are correct. These transmissions were to fault-find on a 250/300 kW sender at the UK HF transmitter station at Woofferton.

These duration of these tests can be variable as the engineers can sometimes need a long time to establish a fault or they may interrupt the test, make an adjustment and resume. This is particularly so if the fault is of an intermittent nature.

Encompass Digital Media, Woofferton is the only remaining UK HF sender broadcast station and also is the only one with this transmission test audio and email address.

The audio is contained in a file play-out system and incorporates non-copyright music and voice announcements from one of the engineers, Martin 2E1EKX at the transmitter site.

Thanks for your interest.

(*) Quando ascolto questo programma di musica classica sulle onde corte mi ricordo del mio CD contenente una incisione del giovanissimo pianista Glenn Gould alle prese col Concerto in Re Minore di Bach registrata da suo padre alla radio il 29 marzo 1955: nella registrazione c'è anche una brevissima evanescenza... quasi del tutto corretta dalla masterizzazione (chi di analogico ferisce di fading perisce... ma almeno continua ad ascoltare... col DRM avremmo perso questa straordinaria performance, in cui Glenn sembra "bucare" con le note del suo pianoforte la (splendida) prestazione dell'orchestra!)

(**) s/on e s/off senza interval signal caratteristico di questa emittente. Un programma carino ed una bella iniziativa che dimostra quanto le onde corte siano ancora insostituibili.

(***) Degen DE1103 e stilo telescopico nel parcheggio della mia scuola prima di entrare per gli esami di stato

Glenn Hauser logs June +27-28, 2020

** ALGERIA [non]. 9620, June 28 at 0607, RTA Qur`an is S9 but with rapid beepery, this frequency the lucky one drawing the defective Issoudun, FRANCE transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, June 28 at 1334-1345, lots of them: 13530; 13160 & 13070 & 12820 all S7-S9; 12190 JBA; 14550 Open carrier, else?; 14850 S7-S9; 14980 S9/+10 and only one with a fast SAH implying other signal SOH being jammed; 15110 strangely a JBA carrier only today, maybe VOA not jammed? 11460, 11440, 11170, 11150 JBA; 11120 S4-S6; 10920 & 10820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9900, UT Sun June 28 at 0005, The Mighty [Farty] KBC found here with S9+20 VG signal presumably still via Nauen, GERMANY, since it`s missing from scheduled 9925! Mistake? No word of any planned QSY nor any need for it. Notified WOR iog immediately and a couple thanked me for the tip. Back on 9925 next week? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA [and non]. Another reply from Texas Radio Shortwave June 26:

``Ahoy Matey Glenn - There weren't any ships to raid and burn to the waterline last night so Cap'n Ric was catching up with your logs on the W4UVH website. (Actually, Cap'n can't read so Third Mate Susan was reading the best parts to him, you know, the mentions of TRSW.).

He was as pleased as pirate "punch" (i.e. rum) to see TRSW's Roy Orbison tribute eQSL on the site. Third Mate Susan downloaded WOR2040 to give Cap'n something to listen to while her voice recovers. Now we know why you sometimes sound hoarse on the programs.

First Mate Mr. Turkey said TRSW may curtail broadcasts to NAm in favor of its monthly programming over Channel 292 in Germany. Or at least until the Fall-Winter holidays. TRSW has a growing listener base in Europe and a relatively fixed group of DX enthusiast listeners in NAm, so the thought is to concentrate on Europe. Right now, based on listeners' feedback, TRSW programs music about Texas and lesser-known songs by Texas artists.

Second Mate Mr. Bunny sent his regards and seven already-issued TRSW pirate trading cards. The remaining three cards will be released later this year. Enjoy and collect 'em all. [were attached]

73 and Arrgghh.

P.S.  When raiding ships, Crew wears protective masks and practices social distancing.

Always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate. Then always be a pirate.

** TURKEY. 9830, June 27 at 2202 check, VOT is on today but poorly audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKOGBANI. 9410, UT Sun June 28 at 0604, BBCWS news mentions that Andrew Jackson was US president 1855-1859!? Really 1829-1837. Followed at 0606 by one of their COVID-19 programmmes, but ID as BBC OS. What means that? ``OS Conversation``: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3ct0vzd Barely sufficient reception, this bihour via USAGM SAO TOME, as BBC continues to ignore North American SWLs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Received a detailed reply, if not explicit QSL from anonymous Broadcast Manager at MARS to my June 26-27 monitoring of 11121-USB and 7324-USB fortnightly broadcasts. Here I will just post the ``red`` reply portions:

``Glenn: Thank you for your reception report. I am going to insert comments below in red. The red is only for ease of identification and infer no other meaning. Broadcast Manager

To: reception@xcvrs.com
Subject: 7324 and 11121 broadcasts monitored in Oklahoma

[11121-USB, Friday June 26 at 2300:]

``This broadcast was from Northern Virginia just southwest of the DC metroplex.``

[7324-USB, UT Sat June 27 at 0100:]

 ``This broadcast was transmitted from central Kentucky. The DoD and NATO standard for HF broadcasts is Upper Sideband regardless of frequency. USB applies to both voice and digital modes. (The arbitrary convention adopted by amateur radio worldwide of using Lower Sideband below 14 MHz is simply a convention with no reason based on science.)

Regarding the use of 7325 kHz, there was no interference 500 Hz below the center of the channel when we began using the channel. We have requested a small move of that channel based on long-term SDR logging of nearby activity. The change process is not simple. Because it is a DoD frequency it has to be coordinated up thru the Air Force and DoD. When DoD approves they make a request to The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) in the Department of Commerce for frequency coordination.

Here is a graphic of the complex spectrum management workload at NTIA.
https://www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publications/2003-allochrt.pdf

So, as you see, when a country decides to start transmitting on an interfering frequency it is not easily solved overnight.``

``The broadcasts are transmitted by the Air Force MARS Military Support Network which uses the on-air callsign of MARSCOMM. We do not transmit the callsign of the transmitting station in accordance with DoD directives regarding protecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII).``

``At 0100 we had simultaneous broadcasts on 11121 from Nevada and 7324 from South Dakota. Both of those stations are always very strong. From Oklahoma I copied both stations Loud & Clear on two different channels on an ICOM IC-7610.``

``At 0120 there was a single broadcast on 7324 from South Dakota. It too was Loud & Clear at all reporting stations.``

``Thank you for your signal report. We hope to hear from you again in the future. MARSCOMM Broadcast Manager`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28236.5-CW, June 27 at 2140, 10-meter beacon activity lacking any 3-meter FMDX, long message with ID finally copied as W0KIG/B, and --DO, but had to be this, missed a dit making it -Z instead of -G, from WJ5O roster:

``28.2365 WØKIZ C DENVER, COLORADO # 5W, 1/2 VERTICAL``

i.e. from https://www.qrz.com/lookup/w0kiz

``W0KIZ USA flag USA, ROBERT E GOLD, CASTLE ROCK, CO 80104 USA QSL: CORRECT ZIP CODE 80108 --- The second picture is my 10 meter beacon on 28.2365 mhz running about 9 watts with 5 watts to the antenna on my barn. The 5763 final tube is approaching 80,000 hours of continuous operation. Yes, properly designed equipment with the correct voltages running ccs operation can last as long as solid state. This beacon is never disconnected for lightning.``

At this time there was lots of activity on 10m, non-beacon CW at bandbottom, phone USB above 28.3; also lots on 11m CB. WWV in well on 25000, correlating with short-skip beacon also from CO, under 500 miles.

Yet even when this happen, find near/zero activity on 12 or 15 m. I look for any on the latter and do find one:

21363-USB, June 27 at 2200, YL K5RZA, YL participating in Field Day with quick QSOs:

``K5RZA DEBORAH S BOWEN, P O Box 2856, Fredericksburg, TX 78624 USA``

BTW, UT Sun June 28 circa 0600, 40m is crammed with LSB Fieldayers --- nighters? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNSOLICITED TESTIMONIALS

Many thanks to John Carver, Bringhurst IN, for a generous contribution to P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, with this touching hand-printed note sent June 23:

``Glenn, Finally got my plague check and am sharing a portion with you just as you have shared DX tips and your radio knowledge with me and everyone else for all these years ever since I subscribed to the print edition of RIB. As I recall, I answered an ad in the WRTH. I have been proud to contribute a few news items to you and hope to do so again in the future. Have not been able to contact my computer guy as of yet. Really miss the WOR group and the other mailing lists as my only source of information now is the WOR radio program. Feel very isolated and alone here. Been ill a couple of times and am going through a spell of physical problems, and my eyes are getting worse. Hope you`re doing well. Thanks, man. John``

When you can finally read this, John, we all wish you the best! (gh)

1980: Quando con l'SSB si voleva contrastare l'affollamento delle onde corte

Sono riuscito a trovare una vecchia copia del WRTH 1980, mi interessava la recensione dell'R-1000. Pur macchiata e ingiallita, contiene spunti interessanti. E' un paragone tra il tentativo di introdurre l'SSB (per alleggerire il sovraffollamento delle bande in quegli anni) nonostante il fatto che, a quel tempo, pochi ricevitori erano dotati di BFO; si stimava un periodo di 20 anni il tempo necessario alla diffusione di tali apparati in giro per il mondo. (mi ricordo che alcune emittenti, tra cui Radio Sweden International, avevano iniziato trasmissioni in SSB nei primi anni '80, le avevo anche ascoltate!). Ma come ben sappiamo, l'uso dell'SSB nelle bande broadcasting è tramontato definitivamente. Sembra di sentire le stesse problematiche del DRM: introdotto più di 10 anni fa, risente ancor oggi la mancanza di diffusione di ricevitori adatti, ed a parte qualche servizio ad uso professionale non suscita alcun interesse e neppure entusiasmo (per me il DRM viene usato soprattutto per i ponti radio con altre emittenti, vedi Radio New Zealand che lo usa per diffondere il suo segnale nel Pacifico dove poi è ritrasmesso, spesso in FM - penso sia lo stesso in Cina ed in India o anche in Russia). Per me il DRM farà la stessa ingloriosa fine dell'SSB. Almeno lo spero. Non è accessibile a tutti. E di digitalaccio ne abbiamo già abbastanza tra satellite e TV terrestre, internet e wifi. E poi in AM anche quando ascolti male ascolti sempre, in digitale in presenza di forti disturbi hai buchi tremendi. Ho però un rimpianto per l'uso della SSB: era una sperimentazione valida, che potrebbe essere tutt'ora ripresa dalle low-power attualmente in onde corte. I test in DRM sulle onde medie (BBC, Radio Vaticana) sono praticamente spariti. Per le onde corte il DRM resterà appunto, come servizio professionale (vedi sopra) con qualche appassionato radioascoltatore che si divertirà a decodificarlo, un po' una cosa di nicchia come l'ascolto delle utility. Non c'è mercato e nemmeno richiesta per ricevitori di questa ennesima tecnologia digitale. Non c'è nulla da fare: la radiodiffusione in onde corte, sin quando sopravviverà (e secondo me, avrà un nuovo futuro), sarà sempre in AM: la modulazione di ampiezza è semplice da ricevere, anche con rx autocostruiti. E questo la rende intramontabile. Ma di certo le onde corte diventeranno sempre più libere... e nasceranno tante low-power interessanti (come Ch292, WMR, SWradio, ecc.) che permetteranno a tante radio pirata di diventare legali. Non tutti avranno accesso al DAB (costo licenze, ecc) e quando spegneranno le FM (in Svizzera si pensa già ad uno switch-off anticipato al 2021 dalle FM al DAB) ci saranno spazi enormi per un ritorno di VERE radio libere (come negli anni '70) in FM, ed alcune saranno tentate anche dalle onde corte! E poi... internet è quasi alla frutta... sempre meno libera, sempre più commerciale. Ecco perchè voglio diffondere l'hobby del radioascolto tra i giovani.

ANTENNA ATTIVA LOOP MLA-30: POCA SPESA.... TANTA RESA

 Da qualche tempo la mia attenzione è attirata dalle antenne loop, ne ho già tante ma continuo a dire  a me stesso che questa è l'ultima poi basta... invece non è proprio cosi. Capitato su ebay con l'intenzione di cercare qualche articolo la ricerca s'è subito fermata su di una antenna loop da esterno dal look molto accattivante la  MLA-30, acronimo di mega loop antenna. Quest'antenna dal costo veramente irrisorio  di circa 43 euro spedizione inclusa copre lo spettro delle HF da 1 fino a 30 mhz con buone prestazioni (purtroppo ad acquisto effettuato ho costatato che NON è per nulla adatta all'ascolto delle onde medie!) incuriosito dall'articolo ho subito cliccato su "acquista ora" e dopo circa 15 giorni d'attesa l'ho trovata nella cassetta delle lettere. Scartata dall'involucro ben protettivo l'antenna e accessori si presentano come in figura: 


Il set  è cosi composto: loop di 60 cm  in fil di ferro ,il controller da esterno con amplificatore entrocontenuto e circa 5 m di sottile cavo RG con connettore sma maschio, due viti di fissaggio,controller da interno con presa usb piu' cavo dedicato e due connettori sma femmina ( da antenna verso controller) e 30 cm di sottile RG con connettori sma maschio per il collegamenento al  rx ,( consiglio d'avere a disposizione un adattatore sma femmina- PL maschio per la connessione  al ricevitore), ATTENZIONE, purtroppo nella confezione NON E' INCLUSO L'ALIMENTATORE  220Volt-5Volt  facilmente reperibile in quanto trattasi di un semplice caricatore del tipo usato  per smartphones e tablets! una volta aggiunto il caricatore  sono passato subito alla prova vera e propria: l'antenna risulta ben fatta e robusta, il controller esterno è stagno mentre quello da interno è di piccole dimensioni  e poco ingombrante dove sono presenti i connettori sma femmina  per il collegamento dell'antenna e ricevitore, un led bianco segnala il corretto funzionamento,presa usb da 5Volt per l'alimentazione  e cavo dedicato. Il loop di ca. 60 cm di diametro è composto da un sottile fil di ferro ca 0.50  mm già pre-modellato da fissare tramite viti a galletto fornite nella confezione .


Spendo due parole sul loop che a mio modesto parere risulta molto fragile e non adatto a esposizioni prolungate ad intemperie o vento forte come tipico di questi  ultimi anni; sicuramente lo deformerebbe oppure danneggerebbe seriamente, il problema è presto risolvibile realizzando un loop  più robusto con fil di ferro da 2 o più mm, io l'ho realizzato con del cavo di rame smaltato da 4mm normalmente  usato per la messa a terra , già che avevo l'opportunità l'ho anche ingrandito portandolo a 90 cm di diametro. L'alimentazione dell'antenna avviene tramite caricatore usb come gia' detto, purtroppo questo genera parecchi e fastidiosi ronzii di sottofondo che qualche volta vanno a coprire i segnali più deboli  (sarebbe da provare ad usare un cavo usb caricatore -controller dotato di ferriti e verificare se si ottiene un risultato migliore purtroppo al momento non lo ho disponibile!)per il resto le ricezioni dei segnali nello spettro di 1-30 mhz sono più che soddisfacenti e le belle sorprese non mancheranno,il rapporto S/N è più che discreto , questa loop nonostante li ridotte dimensioni ha un  "buon orecchio fino "nel ricevere  segnali "puliti" come quelli in DRM ( Digital Radio Mondiale )oppure "fugaci" come in modo HFDL per intenderci . L'antenna può essere anche usata in portatile semplicemente alimentandola con un comune powerbank da 5000mah o superiore,  NON ASPETTATEVI GRANDI SEGNALONI PULITI essendo una antenna attiva lo "strascico" del disturbo è di casa!, non contento l'ho anche messa alla prova come antenna da interno semplicemente appoggiandola vicino alla finestra o in posizione verticale ( come da immagine)  e le buone impressioni e buoni segnali non si sono fatte attendere, al momento continuo ad usarla  "in configurazione " da interno.

In conclusione posso affermare che l'acquisto fatto mi ha veramente soddisfatto, poi diciamolo chiaramente 43 euro non sono una grande spesa!, le prestazioni sono discrete e le possibilità d'utilizzo sono molteplici; in altre parole il divertimento è assicurato con poca spesa.. e tanta resa  a MIO PERSONALE PARERE l'antenna è promossa! ENJOY THE ANTENNA AND HAVE A NICE LISTENING WITH  MLA-30.

Glenn Hauser logs June 27, 2020

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey June 27: 12820 & 12190 at 1325 vs high local line noise level; at 1432 still 12190 but not 12820.

At 1435, 12835 and stronger 12880, both confirmed // 15110. (Almost?) all Sound of Hope frequencies end in -0, consequently also the jammers; so 12835 is unusual, and not in the Aoki/NDXC schedules.

At 1437, 13070 in Chinese, S3-S5; at 1440, 9200 JBA //; 1442, 10920 is JBA and 11170, no others in the area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12200, June 27 at 0541, RHC English at S9+10/20, undermodulated but sufficient. Could easily be a fundamental! But really 2 x 6100, which is S9+30/40. Harmonic leakage must be combining with enhanced propagation, such as sporadic E. Not a trace of RHC on 12000 or 12290, tho the other two 49mb frequencies are also still on the air, 6000 & 6145. Stronger than anything else on 25m. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ETHIOPIA [non]. 11990, Sat June 27 from 1626 I am monitoring via UTwente, tuned to 11989.0-USB so I will hear a 1-kHz het when the carrier come on. It does, at 1631, but only for a split/second and off again. The same thing happens repeatedly for the next semihour, as I note the times, once or twice a minute, but may have missed some as I was simulistening online to `The Score` on KUCO-FM! Many repeated attempts to turn on the transmitter but it goes right back off again:

1631, 1633, 1635, 1635, 1636, 1638, 1639, 1640, ... 1643, 1643, 1644, 1644, 1644, 1645, 1647, 1647, 1648, 1649, 1650, 1651, 1652, 1654, 1656, 1657, 1657 1658, 1659, 1700... That`s enough for me, so I quit.

This is a new IRRS broadcast in Oromo for East Africa, which Ron Norton publicized June 24 without a name or transmitter site as:

``11990 kHz (250 kW) from 1630-1730 UTC on Mon, Wed & Sat to East
Africa in Oromo language``

Meanwhile, Ivo Ivanov, very near the ``Secretbrod`` = Kostinbrod transmitter site of Spaceline in Bulgaria, reported:

``NO SIGNAL at 1630 & 1634 UT on 11990, only QRM from 11985 Radio Free Asia in Korean via Saipan. And nothing at 1656, congratulations for SPL Secretbrod. Fair signal at 1707, but unknown broadcaster.``

So I resumed via UTwente at 1714. Now fairly good signal with Horn-of-Africa music and talk in presumed Oromo. Listening closely to sign-off at 1728, sounds like they mention Kenya, but maybe some other word, and quick ID in passing something like ``Radio Otzutaki`` [or Opuzaki??]. Fortunately Ivo posted a clip including that at 1:38 into; what do you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXRlgX4_7s4&feature=youtu.be along with two clips earlier via: https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2020/06/irrs-unknown-broadcaster-on-11990-khz.html

Meanwhile2, I sent my earlier obs of nothing but carrier attempts to Ron Norton of NEXUS-IBA/IRRS and got this reply from Alfredo Cotroneo in Ireland at 1736:

``Hi Glenn, We are on 11990 with 250 kW. Propagation is crazy today, but we got reports from Russia. Antennas are pointing away from Twente. Alfredo``

To whom I replied:

``Alfredo, I`m sure the signal failed before 1700 as described. Retuned at 1714, then it was on steadily and sufficiently audible until 1729*. Could you reveal the name of this broadcaster, maybe website and/or contact info? Glenn`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, June 27 at 0544 presumed Kurdish music, S5-S7, long pause, and more music. Denge Welat via FRANCE until 0600 switches to Pridnestrovye site per Aoki/NDXC. Also could be Turkish jammer ``Radio Recep Erdogan``, but only one signal heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, June 27 at 0601, another day off for VON, no signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2040 monitoring: confirmed Saturday June 27 at 1325 the 1300 on WRMI 15770, JBA but sounds like my intonation. Next:

One may also contribute via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, Saturday June 27 at *1453, KVOH carrier on as I have been waiting for it; 1455 music; 1458 English ID & IS; 1500 sign-on; 1501 hymn so no Wavescan? No, that`s the way WS starts this week, a DX program without a constant themesong for sesquidecades. Signal is S6-S9 and somewhat undermodulated. I want to check how it sound closer to Carib target, but little or no signal at TWR Key West, Bonaire, DR remotes, nor the one at Alexandria VA.

Therefore KVOH is failing to reach its intended audience. There is plenty of single-hop HF sporadic E between Simi and here, MUF beyond 18 MHz, getting it here, but would require improbable double hop to Carib, if not non-sporadic F2 prop which obviously is not funxional (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

IRRS Nexus: pessimo servizio e pessima comunicazione

Ennesimo strafalcione dell'associazione italo-americana operante, con trasmettitori altrui, sulle onde corte: anche l'ultimo annuncio di una trasmissione loro commissionata era errato, una trasmissione in afan oromo sugli 11990 è stata oggi effettivamente ascoltata, mo non non all'orario da loro comunicato bensì alle 17.30 UTC, il sito dovrebbe essere quello bulgaro di Kostinbrod

Ya hemos contado aquí la historia de las emisoras mineras en Bolivia, en el proceso de la nacionalización de las minas y la lucha obrera en un difícil contexto histórico. Entre las iniciativas del movimiento obrero minero se destaca la instalación de emisoras sindicales en los distritos mas importantes. Fue así que en la década de 1950, comienzan a transmitir tres emisoras…
