The K7RA Solar Update

Tad Cook, K7RA, Seattle, reports: Solar activity was lower this week, with the average daily sunspot number declining from 34.9 last week to 13.9 this week. This average was affected by the single day with no sunspots, Saturday, June 12.

Average daily solar flux dropped from 77.7 to 75.2. The Penticton observatory in British Columbia (the source for the 10.7-centimeter solar flux) did not report a noon reading on Wednesday, June 16, so we averaged the morning (76.9 at 1700 UTC) and afternoon readings (77.1 at 2300 UTC) to come up with 77 as a reasonable approximation.

Normally, the local noon reading (2000 UTC) is the official number for the day. You can get the three daily readings directly from the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory.

On Thursday, the noon flux reading was 85, higher than it’s been since May 26, when it was 88.

Predicted solar flux for the near term is 75 on June 18–20; 80 on June 21–25; 77 on June 26–28; 78 on June 29 – July 7; 79 on July 8–10; 77 on July 11–13; 76 on July 14–16; 78 on July 17; 80 on July 18–20; 78 on July 21, and 77 on July 22–25.

Predicted planetary A index is 12 on June 18; 5 on June 19–25; 7 on June 26; 5 on June 27 – July 4; 15, 10, and 8 on July 5–7; 5 on July 8; 8 on July 9–11; 10, 12, 20, and 12 on July 12–15; 5 on July 16–22, and 7 on July 23.

I am very excited about this forecast for the new Solar Cycle 25, which we are now seeing only its early stages. Forbes Magazine reported this.

Here’s the geomagnetic activity forecast for June 18 – July 15, from J.K. Janda, OK1HH:

The geomagnetic field will be:

quiet on June 20, 24, 27 – 28, July 1, 10, 15
quiet to unsettled on June 18 – 19, July 11, 14
quiet to active on June 21, 23, 25 – 26, 29 – 30, July 2, 6 – 9
unsettled to active (June 22, July 3 – 5, 12 – 13)
active to disturbed — nothing!
Solar wind will intensify on June (18 – 19,) 21, (22 – 24, 29,) 30, July (2,) 3, 5, 10 – 11

Remarks: Parentheses mean lower probability of activity enhancement.

F.K. Janda, OK1HH, of the Czech Propagation Interest Group, has been compiling this weekly geomagnetic activity forecast since January 1978.

Jeff, N8II, wrote: “On June 4 – 5, there was a very good 10 meter sporadic E opening to Europe, which started well before I did at 2200 UTC. Ian, MM0TFU, was the first one in the log on 10 SSB with 5/8 reports both ways. Andy, LZ2HM, was next on CW with a good signal; no other EU stations within 1000 kilometers were worked. Most all of my QSOs were with the UK and Ireland; I worked all four major UK DXCC entities. EI6JK and EI3EIB were both loud after 2400 UTC; last QSO was 0022 UTC with a total of about 20 EU contacts. Signal levels were very good from most stations.

“On June 11, 10 meters was open on Es to somewhere for most of the day. At 1900 UTC stations from Florida and the Gulf Coast were loud, including K4D on Dog Island IOTA NA-085 in the Big Bend area of the Gulf. Around 2000 UTC, I worked Missouri, Nebraska, and Michigan. Then at 2200 UTC 3 very loud VE3 stations from north-central Ontario. AC2CZ/VE2 in Montreal running 12 W into a dipole was next. Starting 2347 UTC I worked Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, and Illinois before two double-hop Es contacts after 2400 UTC with N7WWH near the coast of north Oregon, and KM6YSS in Canyon County, Idaho. At 0027 UTC, XE1XR in central Mexico was S-9+ and easily worked, followed by Luis, XE2B, at 0036 UTC. All contacts were on SSB.

“The ARRL June VHF Contest took place June 12 – 14, which found some sporadic E most of the time. On 6 meters SSB and CW, I made 130 QSOs with my poor-performing Yagi. The Es started around 2230 UTC with stations in Tennessee, Texas, and northern Florida. Sunday morning, Es started with W0WP in Iowa (EN42) and spread to other WØs, followed by an intense opening to the south and southwest, with my closest contact being with Ed, K3DNE, in EM94 SC. Many Georgia stations were very loud, as were many in Florida and some in Texas and Oklahoma. I also caught Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. At 1546 UTC, I found EA8BPX in the Canary Islands (IL18) and was able to get through. In the afternoon many local stations on FT8 were working EU stations mostly in Spain, France, and Portugal. I worked F4ARU in France at 1834 UTC on SSB. Late around 0100 UTC, the band was still open well to EM19 (NQ0P as loud as a nearby local), EM49, and EM18.

“Today, June 17, there was an opening to Spain on 10 meters at 1950 UTC to EA7HZ and EA3AR. My noise level was very high. MM0TFU was reporting hearing beacons near my location and farther up the east coast at 2200 – 2300 UTC. At 0012 UTC on the June 18, I worked VP9KD in Bermuda who was S-9+ for a new band slot on 10 meters SSB.”

Sunspot numbers for June 10 – 16 were 29, 13, 0, 22, 11, 11, and 11, with a mean of 13.9. The 10.7-centimeter flux was 73.3, 77.3, 77.6, 68.9, 76.8, 75.5, and 77, with a mean of 75.2. Estimated planetary A indices were 5, 10, 10, 7, 4, 17, and 14, with a mean of 9.6. Middle latitude A index was 5, 11, 8, 7, 7, 15, and 15, with a mean of 9.7.

** NEW ZEALAND [+ non]. 7245, June 17 at 0610, RNZP now here earlier, VG S9+20/30, tough luck Region 2 hams. Easily outshines neighbor 7255 Nigeria which altho happens to be on tonight, is S9+10/20 of just-barely modulation. Last night at same time I discovered NZ missing from 11725, yet Vanuatu harmonic detectable on 11835.

44 of 47 AM radio stations in Japan to switch to FM by 2028

TOKYO -- Forty-four of the 47 commercial AM radio stations across Japan plan to switch to FM broadcasting by fall 2028 to improve business performance by reducing the cost of operating both AM and FM broadcasting services, it was announced on June 15.

The move to FM broadcasting will be made by all AM radio stations except those in Hokkaido and Akita Prefecture in northern Japan. AM broadcasting services are scheduled to start being suspended as early as fall of 2023 as part of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications' test of switching to FM, meaning that AM broadcasting services will shrink in phases from 2023 onwards.

Though AM broadcasting has a longer range, it has faced challenges, such as requiring large-scale facilities including an antenna at least 100 meters tall and high maintenance costs as they age. Furthermore, AM and FM radio channels broadcast the same programs through FM complement broadcasting, known as Wide FM, as part of disaster prevention measures, causing overlapping facility costs.

As advertising revenue has been falling among commercial AM broadcasters, they requested the communications ministry in 2019 for system reform that would allow them to switch to lower-cost FM broadcasting, and the ministry has approved this reform.

Tokyo-based TBS Radio Inc., Nippon Cultural Broadcasting Inc. and Nippon Broadcasting System Inc. have announced they will halt AM broadcasting in fall 2028 at the earliest. Overall, 21 of the 47 AM broadcasters are set to participate in the ministry experiment, and of the 21, 14 will take part with their broadcast relay stations. Even after the transition to FM by fall 2028, some broadcasters will continue AM programming as a supplementary measure.

FM broadcasting is hard to receive in mountainous and other remote areas, and Wide FM radio requires a receiver corresponding to certain frequencies. A 2019 government survey showed, however, that the distribution rate of Wide FM receivers was only at 53%.

TBS Radio Chairman Kiyohiko Irie told a June 15 news conference, "We must quickly act to promote (Wide FM) receivers. We have decided to announce our plans soon to gain understanding from our listeners. While it's each broadcaster's decision whether to switch to FM, each of us are going to use this opportunity to address the challenges."

The broadcasters plan to release annual progress reports on the ministry-led experiment.

Glenn Hauser logs June 16, 2021

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Wed June 16 at 1450 UT tune-in via Pardinho, Brasil KiwiSDR, LRA36 in quite well, with song at S7. Side-tuning to 15475.00-USB, we can confirm there is a carrier, reduced, but in SAM mode not enough to register an exact frequency offset. Usual canned ID which says ``Nacional, Antártida Argentina, en todo el país, la radio pública``, song; 1456 contact info for QSL, then a long announcement about something? 1503 `NAA` ID, this week in world history, for dates June 14, 15, 17, 18. 1506 music. 1512 NAA ID, music; two quick QRMs of rapid clix overriding. 1522 quick weather info including today`s high of 2 grados (not bad for midwinter in Anta, above freezing!); contact info including whatsapp number, phone. 1524 reminds us of Saturday repeat, now fading down into noise level; 1525 Antártida song until 1526*.

Earlier I asked if anyone had the lyrix to it. Manuel Méndez, Spain replied with as much of it as he could copy. Some parts are missing as with [...], notably the opening stanza. No doubt there will be many more chances for native speakers to hear it, or examine old recordings.

``Hi Glenn, this is what I could understand from the Base Esperanza song:

"...Pero el amor a la patria es más fuerte en Base Esperanza, es por eso este homenaje, para que llene de gloria, a todos los corazones que llevan en la memoria. Lágrimas y pañuelos de adiós en la dársena norte dejó el Irízar*, ese día que partió.

Qué esté atenta y centinela, la base Belgrano 2, y la base Primavera....

También quiero yo nombrar, porque las llevó el mar, a Belgrano y Belgrano 3, y la ciencia que nos dió su obra, el amor por nuestro pueblo, el respeto a la bandera, por el Comando Antártico Vida, en el confín de la tierra. Con la fuerza de los vientos, ya salió de Palomar, con rumbo a Base Marambio, el Hércules, al sur de .... Lágrimas y pañuelos de adios, en la dársena norte dejó el Irízar, ese día que partió, que partió."

*El ARA Almirante Irízar (Q-5) (RHAI) es un rompehielos perteneciente a la Armada Argentina.```

And here is a Google translation I, gh, have slightly improved:

"... But the love of the country is stronger in Base Esperanza, that is why this tribute, so that it fills with glory, all the hearts that they carry in their memory. Tears and goodbye handkerchiefs in the north dock left by the Irízar *, that day it left.

Be vigilant and on guard, the Belgrano 2 base, and the Primavera base ....

I also want to name, because the sea took them, the bases Belgrano and Belgrano 3, and the science that their work gave us, love for our people, respect for the flag, by the Antarctic Life Command, at the end of the earth.

With the force of the winds, it has already left Palomar, Heading to Marambio Base, Hercules, south of ....

Tears and goodbye handkerchiefs in the north dock left by the Irízar *, that day it left."

* The ARA Almirante Irízar (Q-5) (RHAI) is an icebreaker belonging to the Argentine Navy.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 332-MCW kHz, June 16 at 0601 UT, ND beacon dash and QT from Thunder Bay is audible over nearby IC Wichita; the two with very different audio frequencies, IC higher. I still suffer high local noise level but the storm noise is not too bad tonight, nothing nearby. One other Canadian is copied, as these two high-power make it if any do:

248-MCW kHz, June 16 at 0612 UT, NDB dash and WG, from WinnipeG (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Wed June 16 at 1503 check via UTwente, no signal today from new clandestine as reported yesterday. Perhaps it will be on Tuesdays only. As for the language, Arthur Pozner said:

``This was confirmed today in several Asian countries, the language
used is Urdu. Target area is Kashmir. Another clandestine broadcast;
and the "Uganda" program was cancelled several days ago!`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255-MCW kHz, June 16 at 0613 UT, ND beacon SW in Stillwater is gone again. It had been regular whenever checked every night since it came back March 17 after a 5+ week absence. Still off at 1437 UT daytime check.

341-MCW kHz, June 16 at 1438 UT, ND beacon EI, Enid, is back! Can this be coincidental just when SW 255 has vanished? Had been gone since April 16. Checked every night. 25 watts only a few miles away, but a struggle to copy, tipped by presence of a carrier first (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, June 16 at 0559 UT, KUCO-FM Edmond/OKC amid restored music relayed from The Classical Station, WCPE, foregoes its own ID and lets the WCPE + satellites station IDs come thru after low-frequency cue tone clearly audible on my radio speaker into my ears; as KUCO`s device is out for repair.

** ANTARCTICA [non]. The annual BBCWS mid-winter special of greetings to inhabitants of British Antarctic stations occurs every year on June 21 at 2130-2200 UT --- AND planned frequencies are tried one week earlier at 2130-2145, i.e. Monday June 14. Dan Ferguson got the frequencies, so I was ready for them via Pardinho SP Brasil KiwiSDR, as there aren`t any in Antarctica; but this one gets LRA36 well.

7305, Woofferton cuts on at 2130 atop else? promo, news HL, 2132 The Connexion, i.e. testing with what`s on BBCWS now; S9+15/25
6170, Ascension, S9+15/25 equally good
9505, Woofferton, S9+20 but somewhat lower mod, splash de weak 9500?
6035, UAE no signal

Direct to OK, 9505 JBA carrier; 6170 & 6035 nil, 7305 nil or JBA carrier. They all went off circa 2145*. Something is still on 7305; Aoki shows CNR1. It was not a problem in SP while BBC was on. 9500 QRM would also be CNR1. 73, (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, June 15 at 0629, RHC English is S9+20/30 but JBM; 6100 is S9+10/20 and merely undermodulated. 6060, 6000 and 5040 are all off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13635 & 13765 approx., June 15 at 1417, F# FMish spurblobs, only VP today out of RHC 13700-AM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 11850, June 15 at 0633, African language S9 but high noise level. It`s DW in Hausa via FRANCE at 0630-0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. At 1513 UT June 15 posted to the WOR iog: ``[WOR] 15170 IRRS Kashmiri --- 15170, from 1459 June 15, new IRRS clandestine for Kashmir is huge signal into UTwente, low bass talker with noise, music background, occasional English terms mixed into Kashmiri? Now`s the time to hear it until 1530; Tuesdays only? Or precursor of regular broadcast. Glenn Hauser`` A reply:

``Recording using the U. Twente SDR receiver. I was in a Teams meeting but I could hear in the background what I think was the standard Muslim greeting at the start ("As-salamu alaikum"). If I can find the time, I'll review the recording to see what else might be gleaned. -- Richard Langley`` --- then my full report:

15170, Tue June 15 at *1457.5, carrier on, S9+10 into UTwente SDR. 1459 fragment of song, quick IRRS sign-on ID; 1500 drumming and talk in presumed Kashmiri, very deep bass voice, starting with Salaam aleikum. Now up to S9+25. Occasional English words/terms/names as I listen to the whole thing, such as: Hindustani, Kashmiri, Islamic majority, Islamabad; 1506 law & order. There is constant music background and mike noise, in the wind? Or being manhandled. 1510 Kashmiri Civitas -- as Kai Ludwig had suggested; with strumming. 1514 brief switch to a different voice with throat-clearings over and over, and different background music. Soon back to deep voice. 1524 switches to halting English but very hard to understand: social platforms, decide future, want to be independent, decide as a nation, should be part of Pakistan or independent state, people of Kashmir will decide, autonomy, house of parliament, shopkeepers donating, Islam ready for anything. 1526 back to Kashmiri; chopped off air at 1529*.

Tnx to Alfredo Cotroneo of IRRS for advance info June 14 about this broadcast as in my previous report; it had been registered with HFCC as starting last week on Tuesdays only, 79 degree azimuth from somewhere. Kai Ludwig had replied:

``Remember "Radio Free Kashmir", which appeared in May 2020 and was supposed to have a weekly broadcast on Sundays, 0330-0430 on 7355. This was a shortlived venture, in fact I'm not sure if it really made it on air at all. But it was reported as IRRS-brokered, too, and so the question at hand is obvious. These broadcasts in 2020 came (or were supposed to come) from https://kashmircivitas.com Kai`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. Altho heard Sunday June 13 for hours and hours on 9890, R. Yoruba via Woofferton was missing Mon June 14; and also Tue June 15 when checked via UTwente at 2329. Meanwhile, explained June 15 with more about it from Alan Pennington, UK, on the WOR iog:

``Re: [WOR] [bdxc-news] New station broadcasting to Nigeria? This station seems to use the name "Radio Ominira Yoruba" ("Radio Freedom Yoruba" in English) on its Facebook page, set up on 3rd June.

On their Facebook page (Radio/Tv Ominira Yoruba) they posted yesterday (14 June) that broadcasts will be every Saturdays and Sunday on 9890 (so not daily, despite HFCC registration?): "Tunein to Radio Ominira Yoruba on Shortwave Radio 9890KHz Frequency. Share this page with Yoruba citizens both Home and Diaspora. Listen to us every Saturday and Sunday from 20.00pm to 01.00am Nigeria time on (Shortwave Radio) Frequency 9890kHz SW."

So Saturday and Sundays 1900-0000 UT. https://www.facebook.com/RadioTv-Ominira-Yoruba-109579721340076 73, Alan Pennington, Caversham, UK`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475, June 15 at 0416, Station YHWH is S8/S9+5 into Corinne, northern Utah SDR; tnx to tip from Eric Fetters-Walp in WA on the WOR iog. Rick Barton, AZ, was also hearing it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. June 15 at 0510 UT I posted to the WTFDA gg:

``90.1 KUCO-FM OKC is stuck with legal IDs looping every 34 seconds, instead of WCPE overnight relay of classical music. First noted before 0540 UT June 15 and still going past 0600. A de facto MS DX test! Wake up, tune in if you have a clear channel, record, as this may go on all night. Also probably applies to satellites KBCW 91.9 and KCSC 95.9, all three mentioned in the ID. 73, Glenn Hauser, Enid`` --- a reply:

Neal [sic], Thanks for this tip on the impromptu FM DX Test! (Hey, wait—that’s MY gig!) I’m recording overnight on 90.1 and running RDS Spy as well, hoping to log this one. Really appreciate the heads up. Fingers crossed. Everyone bear in my mind that meteor scatter is often best in the early morning hours up till about 10 AM. So don’t stop rolling at sunrise. 73, Les Rayburn, N1LF, Maylene, AL 35114``

``Who`s Neal? This came from me, Glenn. KUCO tells me this ran until morning shift at 1000 UT. ``The tone controller has died``, i.e. low audio frequency cues from WCPE to insert local IDs. Will want to know if Les or anyone got it by MS. Glenn Hauser, OK``

And here`s my correspondence later with KUCO, Brad Ferguson, mgr.:

``Brad, Sorry to report that your automatic legal ID was looping every 34 seconds from before when I tuned in at 12:40 this morning, past 1:20 when I turned off. Had I awakened later I was set to check it again, but after 6:00 it was back to normal. I fear it ran like that most of the night. Obviously there is no one in downtown OKC overnight, but I would hope some of you had remote control access to take care of problems like that. Or a fail-safe to replace with local music, or something. Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid``

``Yes, I got us back when I came in a little after 5:00. Chris thinks the tone controller has died so we will run tonight without our IDs and he will come with his tester tomorrow. BF`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Radio208 and WMR Newsletter

Transmitter situation

World Music Radio (WMR) has now commenced broadcasting in the 11 metre band on 25800 kHz as of today, June 14th 2021 at 11 UTC. The power is 100 Watts – or some 250 Watts ERP – and the transmitter site is a 110 m tall mast in Mårslet in the southern outskirts of Aarhus, Denmark. The transmitter will be on the air 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing very good coverage to Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark. Occasionally the signal can also be heard much further afield when conditions are good. As the sunspot number is increasing – until the maximum is reached (probably) in the Summer of 2025 – long distance reception on 25800 kHz will improve.

After four years of struggle, WMR finally began broadcasting on MW 927 kHz from Hvidovre, Copenhagen, on April 14th 2021. Initially with 50 Watts only; power was gradually increased, and is now 250 Watts. Within the next few weeks the power will be increased to 500 Watts. The transmitter provides excellent reception in the larger Copenhagen area and in parts of Zealand and SW Sweden during daytime. Unfortunately a very powerful, Italian pirate station (supposedly from SW of Milan) began using 927 kHz a short while after WMR was launched on 927, making reception of WMR impossible in most parts of Europe, and even causing severe interference to WMR on 927 kHz in Denmark during evenings and night time.

WMR continues broadcasting on 5930 kHz with almost 200 Watts from Bramming in SW Denmark. The work on installing a 500 Watts PA, which was purchased 1½ years ago, has seen little progress but hasn’t been given up. Luckily 5930 kHz is a clear channel all day except 2100-2400 UTC.

WMR also continues using 15790 kHz with 200 Watts into a 3 element yagi beamed south. The transmitter site is north of Randers, and this transmitter is on the air regularly every Saturday and Sunday at 0700-2000 UTC. During the summer period the transmitter is often kept on the air continuously from Saturday morning at 0700 until Sunday at 2100 or 2200 UTC. The signal is mainly picked up in Southern Europe, but is also audible at times in Ireland, northern Scandinavia, Russia, the Middle East, Northern Africa and Brazil. This weekend will also see a prolonged schedule: WMR will be on the air on 15790 kHz from June 17th at 0700 UTC continuously till June 21st at 2200 UTC. Good opportunities for a great DX catch!

Radio208 continues 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on 1440 kHz from Ishøj, Copenhagen. The power is 500 Watts. Works very well and is extremely stable.

After some unlucky events with the shortwave transmitter, Radio208 has now been running very well on 5970 kHz since February 9th. Power is a little under 100 Watts. From March 28th the transmitter is on the air 24/7 but the frequency is suffering from interference during evenings and night time from other users of 5970 kHz. The old 250 Watts transmitter, which previously was used on 5805 kHz, has been repaired and it is hoped that this transmitter can be taken into use on 5970 within the next month or two.


QSLs

A new WMR QSL card has been printed and has been sent out to DX’ers. Please note that WMR has a new QSL policy: As of January 2021, WMR no longer issues a full detail eQSL. A printed full detail QSL card is available if you send your report by mail to World Music Radio, PO Box 112, DK-8960 Randers SØ, Denmark – and if possible enclose return postage (two duly stamped International Reply Coupons or a five euro note). A printed full detail QSL card is also available if you send your report by email, and at the same time make a donation of at least 50 DKK via PayPal to paypal.me/worldmusicradio

The QSL policy of Radio208 remains unchanged for the time being.


Please help keeping AM radio alive – and WMR and Radio208 on the air

Listeners of World Music Radio and Radio208 are kindly invited to send a donation to cover some of the costs involved with running these two, non-commercial radio stations. The running costs includes music royalties (450 euro per month) and electricity costs for the AM-transmitters. Funds are also needed for paying the huge bills for getting 927 kHz and 25800 kHz on the air; these projects did indeed cost an awful lot of money.

Your support is highly appreciated – and all amounts are welcome!!

Please use this link: paypal.me/worldmusicradio - or please make a bank transfer to Hartvig Media, Hovedvejen 17, DK 8920 Randers – IBAN DK1093310007162081 – SWIFT KRONDK22 (the bank is Sparekassen Kronjylland, Mariagervej 47, DK 8920 Randers, Denmark)

Thank you all so much for donations to WMR and Radio208 received in the past couple of months

** CUBA. 6060, June 14 at 0216, RHC humbuzz over music, presumably Spanish service at this hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. Alfredo Cotroneo of IRRS writes me June 14:

``Hi Glenn, These broadcasts to Africa have now been ended by requests of the sponsoring organisation.

However, we have a new broadcast on 15170 each Tuesday from 1500-1530 beamed to Kashmir. Any reception report will be welcome, and we will pass it on to the broadcaster for answer according to our privacy policy (GDPR applies to EU citizens) at https://nexus.org/privacy-policy/ We will also issue our own QSL card, but we have a huge backlog, so anyone please bear with us. Bests. Alfredo``

Tuesday only at 1500-1530 on 15170 is the HFCC registered one with 300 kW at 79 degrees from ``Milano``, while the Ugandan ones were allegedly at 149 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 9890, Radio Yoruba, 19-24 UT via Woofferton UK:

At 1958 UT June 13, Alan Pennington posted to BDXC-UK iog:

``There were a few tweets on Twitter last week about a test transmission Sun 6 June 2100-2200 on 9890 (or 98.90 kHz) with the tag #Yorubaradio e.g.
"We are now ready for the test transmission. It will take place this Sunday 6th June and will run from 2100-2200 UTC. The frequency of the transmission will be 9890 kHz and this is the frequency we would aim to use for the full broadcast. #YorubaRadio." (Yoruba Nation on Twitter June 5) This must be the same station on 9890 at the moment (1945 UTC). 73, Alan``

With a jpg attached, which I have transcribed into text:

``RADIO YORUBA 98.90 KHZ [sic] BROUGHT TO YOU BY: WHITE LION [emoji]
Comrade Olayomi Koiki

#Radio_Yoruba to be launched on 6/6/2021
Thanks to Comrade Olayomi Koiki
(AKA #White_Lion) 98.90 KHz

He made this possible. Now the gospel of Yoruba Nation liberation would continue to be preached for all to accept the message and bear us witness that Yoruba Nation must be free.

#SayNoNigeria

``God bless Oloye Sunday Igboho for volunteering himself to lead us out of this fraudulent contraption called Liegeria
God bless Yoruba Nation``.

5/6/2021``

I was wondering if any of the broadcast would be in English? I am not
listening to Yoruba hour after hour, but at 2322 check, 9890 is being
narrated in heavily accented English plus music background. Via
UTwente. At 2358 anthem? 2359 brief talk and music, off 2359.5* The
signal direct had been JBA (gh)

Some earlier discussion of this on the WOR iog:

``Thanks, Ron. Will listen out for them today. The desire of independence for Yorubaland is not dissimilar to that of the Igbos in Biafraland. Like many former British colonies, different ethnic groupings of people (some with long-standing animosities) were forced together to make a "new" country. Richard B. Langley``

``Hi Richard, Funny you should mention Biafra, as yesterday in London, they held a joint Yoruba/Biafra rally. Is a very active time for them!

``Thanks, Ron. And we remember that the Igbos had some clandestine transmissions not so long ago including Radio Biafra: https://shortwavearchive.com/archive/radio-biafra. You probably have similar recordings.

And a decent signal into the U. Twente SDR receiver. At 1945, noted mentions of Yoruba and snippets of the Yoruba National Anthem.

WMR on 25800 kHz

World Music Radio (WMR) has now commenced broadcasting in the 11 metre band on 25800 kHz as of today, June 14th 2021 at 11 UTC. The power is 100 Watts – or some 250 Watts ERP – and the transmitter site is a 110 m tall mast in Mårslet in the southern outskirts of Aarhus, Denmark. The transmitter will be on the air 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing very good coverage to Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark. Occasionally the signal can also be heard much further afield when conditions are good. As the sunspot number is increasing – until the maximum is reached (probably) in the Summer of 2025 – long distance reception on 25800 kHz will improve.

Best 73s and good listening,
Stig Hartvig Nielsen,
