Ecco un esempio di cosa rappresentasse la radio nell’ultimo conflitto mondiale!

estratto dal DIARIO DI PRIGIONIA in Francia del Tenente Andrea Radosta

 2 Giugno 1945
La radio non si ascolta ormai le rare volte, anche le notizie dall’Italia sono venute ad annoiarci perché improntate su un tono diverso da quelli che sono i nostri desideri di ritorno, di tranquillità, di famiglia.

8 Giugno 1945
A sera qualche volta ascolto la radio le cui notizie dall’Italia incominciano a diventare poco interessanti non risolvendo per nulla la nostra situazione. Si giuoca anche a carte.

11 Giugno 1945
Notizie radio sempre le stesse, crisi ministeriale in Italia, questione di Trieste che sembra essere stata sistemata con un compromesso ed operazioni in estremo oriente.

20 Giugno 1945
Notizie radio di oggi. In Italia viene formato un nuovo governo e nominato Parri come primo ministro.

22 Giugno 1945
Le notizie radio di oggi dicono che il nuovo gabinetto italiano presieduto da Parri ha oggi giurato nelle mani del luogotenente del regno.

24 Luglio 1945
Radio Milano annuncia che il Colonnello Poletti ha dichiarato che i prigionieri di guerra italiani non saranno fatti rientrare ,se non verranno prima riattivate le industrie italiane.

27 Luglio 1945
Dopo diversi giorni di tremendo sconforto  dovuto al perdurare della nostra permanenza in Francia ecco giungere per radio la notizia (se vera) di un rientro delle unità Italiane entro il 17/9.

30 Luglio 1945
Notizie radio dicono stamane che entro i prossimi tre mesi l'America restituirà i prigionieri italiani, intanto continuano i concentramenti delle compagnie italiane a Nancy da dove incomincerebbero i rimpatri il 10 agosto.

1 Agosto 1945
In serata ascolto la radio. Insistente la voce di un prossimo rimpatrio delle Unità Servizi Italiane in Francia.

6 Agosto 1945

Apprendo che il Ministro della guerra italiano ha comunicato per radio il rientro, entro settembre, dei prigionieri italiani che saranno avviati alle loro case entro il breve tempo possibile con dure mesi di licenza e dopo essere stati liquidati dei loro assegni dovuti. Tale comunicazione del governo consona perfettamente con le voci già in giro da alcuni giorni. E' chiaro ormai che si rientrerà, la gioia è grande.

15 Agosto 1945

Istruzioni sono già arrivate perché ci si tenga pronti per uno spostamento di rimpatrio che dovrà avvenire entro 72 ore dall'avviso di partenza.

17 Agosto 1945
Primo controllo questa sera ai soldati del materiale in dotazione e che prelude la partenza per il nostro paese.

19 Agosto 1945
In serata altra notizia radio dice che si partirà il 25 per Marsiglia dove verremo imbarcati con destinazione Livorno per quelli del Nord; Napoli per quelli del Sud; Palermo per i Siciliani.

25 agosto 1945
Incomincia a subentrare, all’ottimismo del rimpatrio, una sfiducia per le numerose notizie radio che la nostra presenza in Italia aggraverebbe la già tanto triste situazione invernale che s’intravede grave; è di stasera l’opinione dell’ambasciatore Inglese a Roma di rimandare il rimpatrio per la prossima primavera. La reazione nostra è terribile e non mancano le imprecazioni contro tutto e tutti.

4 settembre 1945
Lo dicevo io, grida un palermitano, oggi è S. Rosalia, si doveva avere qualcosa di buono, difatti, radio Lussemburgo ha annunziato che si è iniziato il rimpatrio dei prigionieri di Francia, mentre radio Milano ha riferito stasera che, quanto prima, saranno imbarcati a Marsiglia 11 mila prigionieri. Vedremo cosa ci sarà di vero e se anche questa volta dovrò non essere fra questi fortunati.

5 settembre 1945
Anche alle 20,20 radio Genova conferma il rientro di 37 mila prigionieri dalla Francia. Attendiamo pazientemente nella speranza che arrivi presto il giorno della nostra partenza e non oltre la fine del mese.

11 settembre 1945
La radio comunica che sono già partite stamane le prime due compagnie italiane di Nancy, sembra che siano stati avviati a Marsiglia per lo smistamento. Noi si dovrebbe partire da un momento all’altro.

15 settembre 1945
Mercoledì della settimana entrante (siamo a sabato) si è in <<allerta>>, giovedì ispezione a tutto il corredo, venerdì partenza. Si partirà da Mirecourt. In camion si andrà a Nancy di lì dopo 24 ore di treno in un centro di smistamento di stanza tra Parigi e Reims e da quest’ultimo posto per Marsiglia ove raggiungeremo l’Italia per mare -Non ci si crede dopo 26 mesi di vere sofferenze morali e fisiche.

21 settembre 1945
Alle 12, ecco arrivare il cap.no Americano da Epinal, il quale annunzia che, a causa del pieno del posto di smistamento, la nostra partenza è ancora rimandata a martedì prossimo 25/9. E’ un colpo, non per altro ma perché bisognerà disfare e rifare tutto, moggi, moggi.

25 settembre 1945
Ci si alza prestissimo, gli ultimi preparativi , si fanno i bagagli, alle 9 si parte alla volta di Nancy. Alle 10 si è alla stazione ove ci si fa salire su dei carri bestiame.

Si dovrà raggiungere il primo campo di smistamento ove saremo suddivisi, esso travasi a 130 km da Parigi. Saliti sul treno merci alle 10,30 si inizia il viaggio alle ore 14, lunghe le fermate, tormentoso il cammino per la scomodità di non poterci neanche sedere. A sera non si son fatti che appena un centinaio di chilometri, ci restano da farne altri 250-. Ci sistemammo per dormire, cercammo in 24 di occupare lo spazio ristretto del vagone stendendo le nostre  coperte per terra e ci coricammo alla meglio e malamente.

30 settembre 1945
Questa fine di settembre coincide con la partenza da questo centro di Romily per Marsiglia, alle 13 si esce, alle 15 si è pronti alla stazione. Per la fine della prossima settimana saremo alle nostre famiglie?

1° ottobre 1945
Il treno porta 1149 siciliani: gruppo che ha fatto parte a sé e che dovrebbe imbarcarsi a Marsiglia direttamente per Palermo.

9 ottobre 1945
E’ triste, snervante l’attesa, specie quando tutti sono già rimpatriati e la radio comunica che per questi 1800 ultimi il governo italiano è impotente a farci rientrare per mancanza di mezzi di trasporto.

21 ottobre 1945
Finalmente  per le 9 sui camion ci dirigiamo verso il porto di Marsiglia. Troviamo la “Città di Alessandria” su cui alle 10 ci imbarchiamo. Per le ore 13 la nave si muove. Si dice che saremo a Napoli mercoledì mattina 24 corrente.

24 ottobre 1945
Alle 9 del mattino siamo alle porte di Napoli, la nave getta la sua ancora innanzi al porto fermando la sua macchina. Un colonnello italiano e due ufficiali vengono a prenderci. Scesi dalla nave siamo liberi!”

Nessun commento. Il Ten. Andrea Radosta era il gemello di mio padre.

Mimmo Radosta

Glenn Hauser logs September 19-20, 2020

 ** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 20 at 0343 check on Bonaire SDR, no signal from anonymous missionary station; yet there is something JBA on the Warrenton MO SDR I had just retuned from 1860 for WOR check (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13806 & 13674, Sept 19 at 2114, FMish spurblobs with unreadable audio but signature F# tone, out of RHC Spanish 13740 at S9; 66 kHz intervals. Just traces at double distances, approx. 13608 & 13872. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But in the mornings, 13700 has been clean for quite a while (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960-, UT Sun Sept 20 at 0024, The Mighty KBC has heavy QRM from always-off-frequency-minus EAST TURKISTAN domestic service, as heard by UTwente SDR making a LAH = low audible heterodyne; but by the time it gets from GERMANY site to Maine SDR, loud and clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, Sept 20 at 0058, only pirate now with rock music, 0059 unreadable YL announcement; only S1-S2. Perhaps Ballsmacker Radio which was on this frequency last night, but much stronger then. Several logs of BSR: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,71863.0.html but lead to this last one, starting: ``This was NOT Ball Smacker. It was a parody show by The FOX. You guys have to listen more carefully to the IDs. The IDs were edited from originals. Neat trick to make a deep male voice sound like a lady. ;-)) Foxhole Productions, in conjunction with Sick Puppy Productions. COCK Smacker Radio at proTEIN mail dot com. Theme was "RADIO". 6960 AM  Time: 0044 IS (3x) to 0131* CSR outro. [...] Hear the show on Internet Archive search.  Lotsa other goodies, too. 73 from the Foxhole Reynard`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2052 monitoring: confirmed Saturday September 19 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, VG S9+20 into UTwente.

Also confirmed UT Sun Sept 20 at 0316 already in progress at Hungary item, on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO via nearby Warrenton SDR. Both this and afternoon airing have some slight skipping, playback problem or SDR problem? Tuned in direct at 0336 finds even stronger S9+20/30 and skipping also audible, finishing at 0336.8 so started early about 0307; next show, Ham-Sci also skipping. Next:

** U S A. (7490 webcast), UT Sun Sept 20 roughly 0007-0022 I catch part of `AAAWWW` on WBCQ repeat that I skipped yesterday at same time. Freddy is asking questions, so we get a bit more info about WHRI. Complains he can`t find many views of that facility online, but WBCQ will fix that once in charge. AW has visited Cypress Creek once, says the facility was well-built originally for the Christian Scientists (as WSHB); has three Diesel generators and as a peaking plant can sell excess power back to the utility. Antennas are curtains capable of handling 500 kW. About having been working on the WBCQ #1 transmitter for 6? weeks, says he hopes it will not burn up again --- oh, that one. It`s still confusing what`s #2 and what`s #3, and what number the ex-WRMI one is or will be; and is that the original Wilkinson from Radio Clarin, or not? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
 
** U S A. (5085 webcast), UT Sun Sept 20 at 0022, WTWW-2 has already started TONITO in such music. This week are recordings performed by John Ferguson, January 1995, at Paramount, Indianapolis, immediately before that organ was dismantled and trucked off to storage, unknown where. 0048 outro, Bob Heil has finally come up with a new program name since he moved to Belleville IL, `Theatre Organ Under The Arch` --- so we have to retire `TONITO` for Theatre Organ Not In The Ozarx`, henceforth TOUTA. A different very noisy organ recording plays on until 0052 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13855, Sept 19 at 2113, S5-S7 of open carrier/dead air, much stronger than 13845 WWCR and 13840 RNZP. In our mornings CRI is there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

TEXAS RADIO SHORTWAVE ANNOUNCES PROGRAM LINEUP FOR REST OF 2020

 GULF OF MEXICO, September 19, 2020/ - Texas Radio Shortwave, an American free radio station, today announced its program lineup for October through December 2020.

Texas Radio Shortwave offers programs featuring music by Texas artists, except for some rebroadcasts of programs from its early days. The older programs are clearly identified during the broadcasts.

Programs will air on Channel 292 from Rohrbach, Germany with 10 kW of power. Frequencies and air times -- with one exception -- are 0200 UTC on 9670 kHz and 0900 UTC on 6070 kHz.

The exception is Christmas Day, with broadcasts at 0200 UTC on 9670 kHz and 1900 UTC on 6070 kHz.

The lineup for the rest of 2020 looks like this: October 17 - Ladies of Texas Music Special; November 21 - rebroadcast of Texas Radio Shortwave’s first program from 2019; December 19 - rebroadcast of the Pre-Christmas Music Special from 2019; and December 25 - the Texas Christmas Music Special.

Texas Radio Shortwave sends limited-edition commemorative electronic verifications to listeners sending correct, detailed reception reports. The email address is texasradiosw@gmail.com.

Reception reports should include times, song titles, the text of announcements, a SINPO/SIO signal rating, information on the listener’s receiver and antenna, and comments on the program content. Listeners using a remote software-defined radio (SDR) should mention that. Audio clips are welcomed.

Listeners worldwide may tune to Texas Radio Shortwave broadcasts using an SDR like the one at the University of Twente in The Netherlands. The URL is http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/.

Texas Radio Shortwave sails in international waters off the South Texas coast. Its programs are broadcast regularly in Europe and occasionally in North America.

According to a WhatsApp received from the station operator, today Saturday there won't be program. The operator has been in an Antarctic Chilean base for two weeks.

** U S A. Regarding the late Justice Ginsburg being treated as if she were a Christian: among the wall-to-wall TV coverage, the crowd spontaneously gathered outside the SCOTUS building broke into hymn, `Amazing Grace`. This is one of the best-known Christian hymns, not ecumenical, Judeo-Christian, from its very origins in a conversion. https://www.learnreligions.com/amazing-grace-701274  However, the original lyrix do not mention J.C. at all, and thus could be taken as more generic. But is it ever sung in synagogues? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA [non]. 600, VOA via R. Libertad, COLOMBIA: I have not monitored since its première UT Sept 16, but Don Moore now reports Sept 19:

``Colombia/Venezuela: There has been discussion in Cadena DX, the Latin American Facebook group, on the VOA programs via Radio Libertad 600 kHz in Barranquilla, Colombia. Santiago San Gil in Barinas wrote that normally Radio Libertad was received there with "acceptable signals" but that since the programs began there has been significant co-channel interference. Fernando Viloria in the coastal Venezuelan state of Carabobo says he has been hearing an unlisted station calling itself "Radio Verdad" and "La Emisora de la Alegría" on 600 kHz. The station has not announced a location. Several DXers wrote of tuning the Radio Libertad programs on the remote SDR in Bonaire. They report it is putting in a good signal to Bonaire. (Don Moore)``

A great many Venezuelan radio stations have gone off the air, tnx to government persecution and/or the economic situation. Was there ever a 600? Yes, first checking a WRTH 2014 at hand:

YVSW, 15 kW, R. Alto Llano, Sta Bárbara de Barinas. I wonder if SSG remembers that one? In fact only one of two MW stations in that state at that time.

YVSW also in WRTH 2005, when there was a second 600: YVQB, 10 kW, Radio Sucre, Cumaná, Sucre, whose address was in a building called Libertad.

In 2005 WRTH there were a number of stations around the country named Radio Alegría, or Radio Fe y Alegría, probably a group or network. Do not see any with Verdad in their names.

There may have been remnants of these outlets which could be pressed into jamming disservice in short order; or any MW transmitter could soon be retuned to 600. Connecting to a proper-wavelength antenna could be quite another matter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs September 18-19, 2020

 ** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 19 at 0245, good via TWR Bonaire SDR, anonymous missionary station with nice tropical music seemingly secular enough, but merely some relief as long-winded Spanish gospel huxter resumes at 0250 citing Ezekiel XL et al. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)


** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 9470, Sept 19 at 0122, American English discussion, must be CRI, S7-S9 with flutter, and // 9580 much stronger and steadier CUBA relay, of which 9470 is a few words ahead. Yes, it`s via Kashgar this hour only, land of ChiCom imperialist persecution, brainwashing/re-education of native Uyghurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Sept 19 at 0000, after a brief tone, some CW too weak to read but presumed Radio Nova ID, as per tip from FRN via Harold Frodge that it would broadcast now. http://www.frn.net/vines/read.php?13,8326,8326#msg-8326 I`m listening via a Rochester remote as on short notice I am just getting ready for AAAWWW on WBCQs. It`s really too weak to make much of, might have been better had I fished around other SDRs or even turned on an own radio; 0042 still going with music, slightly stronger, off by 0050. Several more logs with playlists: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,71791.0.html One more log says it was on 6930-USB by 0104 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, Sept 19 at 0125, piano jazz at S9/+10, a better signal here than I am getting from WRMI 7780 after 0130. 0131.5 YL ID as Ballsmacker Radio, tenpins SFX; mostly music but periodic IDs, 0143 something about ``good old - kHz AM``. Still going at 0205 as ``9 PM Eastern [sic]`` and ID; 0238 still on music down to S7-S8. Many more logs, all-Elton John, here from 0058 to 0252*: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,71797.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also UNIDENTIFIED 6970

** SPAIN. PS to previous report of 9690, REE English, Sept 18, starting Anton Rubinstein`s `Don Quixote` at 2313: Chopped off abruptly for 2230 timesignal, end of transmission; that`s 17 minutes: here`s that very performance, lasting over 21 minutes; come on, Alison! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFZmzHJiAWY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR}

** U S A. 7490, UT Sat Sept 19 at 0000, first monitoring webcast, WBCQ has A&A conversing before the WTO theme plays for `AAAWWW`; almost immediately interrupted by phone call from annoying Freddy, a good excuse to tune out. Recheck at 0022, Freddy is just now being let go! Whew. Allan then says he has been working on rebuilding #1 transmitter; the one donated by WRMI, just waiting for Tim Tron to come up from Skowhegan and put the finishing tuneups on it. TT seems putting off coming to Monticello, despite low COVID-19 rate there. I think AW said or implied it`s the #3 transmitter which is currently on 7490, but also mentioned a #2. I wish we had a clear roster of all six WBCQ SW transmitters, by number and which frequency they occupy. Has the ex-WRMI unit hauled from FL last year, ever been on the air yet at WBCQ? All except the 500 kW, i.e. ``classic WBCQ`` have to be rewired for single-phase power. At 0030 A&A get into discussing conspiracy theories, this week coming off a bit milder. Now I check the other frequencies at Rochester remotes: 5130 is S7-S8; 3265 nothing; 6159.9 is S9; 7490 no signal! 9330 WLCR in Portuguese is S6-S7. ``Biden can`t win since he`s partially demented``. O yeah? 0050 about an hour late, word arrives that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. On his best behavior AW does not denounce her as a socialist/communist, but ``may she be reunited with our lord and savior in heaven; RIP``. Wait a minute, she`s Jewish! But so was AW, originally, so he should know the difference. Before they finish at 0100, I check Alexandria VA SDR for 7490 and it`s OK there, S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6970-AM, Sept 19 at 0238, JBA carrier while I am still getting Ballsmacker on much stronger 6960; another pirate? None reported in HFU but is also a Sound of Hope frequency, so maybe CNR1 jamming but would have to be from far west China possibly to propagate. Seems there has also been a mixing product reported here, Cuba? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

 ** CANADA. 371-MCW kHz, Sept 18 at 0619 UT, JBA NDB dash and GW i.e.: ``371 GW CAN QC KUUJJUARAPIK 2000 55 17 5 -77 45 5`` - dxinfocentre. A new one on me; wow, what a name! I wonder if the French Canadians find it any more daunting than the English?
``Kuujjuarapik - Village in Québec, Canada --- Kuujjuarapik is the southernmost northern village at the mouth of the Great Whale River on the coast of Hudson Bay in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada. Almost 1000 people, mostly Cree, live in the adjacent village of Whapmagoostui. The community is only accessible by air, Kuujjuarapik Airport and, in late summer, by boat. Wikipedia`` Also seems the AP abbr is YGW, but not in this callsign, no Y; just GW as in Great Whale. Each DX log a potential learning experience.

``Frequencies are stated to be 9650, 11850, 13720 and 15450 kHz. Mode is listed as DRM with emission designator 10K0G7W (which is consistent with 10 kHz DRM).`` Depending on the timing, other WIPE frequencies could conflict with Romania, Turkey, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Propagation News – 20 September 2020

 We had another uninspiring week with zero sunspots. However, there was DX to be had, with many Chiltern DX Club members reporting openings on 17 and 15 metres for well-equipped stations. Clive, GM3POI reported hearing India, Japan, Lebanon and South Africa on 17 metres and South Africa, Kenya, Oman and Kuwait on 15 metres. This was no doubt due to seasonal changes in the ionosphere and a very low Kp index, reflecting settled conditions.
The sporadic E season in the Northern Hemisphere has now finished so 10 metre openings are now few and far between. Tony, G4CJC, in his 10 metre band report, said that it was an “appalling week” on 28MHz.

The good news is that NASA and NOAA reported that Solar Cycle 25 has begun. During a media teleconference on 15 September, an international panel of experts found that the sunspot number hit rock bottom in December 2019. Since then, it said sunspot counts have been “slowly increasing”, with solar maximum expected in 2025. Nevertheless, NOAA predicts that the solar flux index will remain pegged at 70 next week, with quiet geomagnetic conditions and a maximum Kp index of two. However, things become more unsettled next weekend when the Kp index may rise to four or five due to the return of a coronal hole and its associated high-speed solar wind stream.

VHF and up:

It seems that we are continuing to show a strong hand for tropo, since high pressure remains close by for much of the time until the end of the coming week. A small blemish this first weekend is the risk of some isolated showers over southern England with possible GHz bands rain scatter options. With similar results, we also have a weak cold front moving south midweek. Otherwise, it’s high pressure predominating in the second half of the week and offering further tropo opportunities.

With negative Moon declination, visibility windows will shorten as the week progresses, reaching a minimum on Thursday. Last Friday’s perigee means that path losses will steadily climb throughout the week. 144MHz sky temperatures are close to 3,000K on Wednesday and combined with the low Moon, EME conditions will be poor midweek. However it’s a good week to increase your satellite DXCC and square counts between the tropo events. There are plenty of LEO sats to choose from plus of course, QO-100 available 24/7.

There is one meteor shower this week—the daytime Sextantids. It has a radiant in the constellation of Sextans and is active until 9 October with the peak occurring on 27 September. The source of the meteor shower is asteroid 2005 UD.

The K7RA Solar Update

 Tad Cook, K7RA, Seattle, reports: Lots of news lately about the solar cycle, but no sunspots. Today, September 18, is the 29th consecutive day with no sunspots.
The news this week was about the Solar Cycle 24 minimum, announced recently as having occurred during December 2019 and indicating the start of Solar Cycle 25. The reason that announcement is just coming out now has to do with the nature of moving averages, which in this case is a smoothed sunspot number, derived from arithmetical averaging of sunspot numbers over a whole year, i.e., half before December and half, to derive a mid-point average.

Recent news stories offer predictions for Solar Cycle 25, such as this one from SpaceRef.

The reporting week of September 10 – 16 gave us an average daily solar flux of 69.2, no significant difference from the previous week’s 69.7. Average daily planetary A index was 5.3, up only a little from 4.4 the previous week. Average daily mid-latitude A index went from 4.9 to 5.4.

Predicted solar flux for the next 45 days (September 18 – November 1) is the same as reported in past recent bulletins, 70 on every day.

Predicted planetary A index is 5 on September 18 – 22; 8, 10, 15, 10, 25, 15, and 10 on September 23 – 29; 5 on September 30 – October 14; 8 on October 15 – 16; 5 on October 17 – 19; then, as in the earlier period, 8, 10, 15, 10, 25, 15, and 10 on October 20 – 26, then back to 5 on October 27 – November 1.

Here’s a geomagnetic activity forecast for September 18 – October 13 from F.K. Janda, OK1HH. The geomagnetic field will be:

quiet on September 21-22, October 6-8

quiet to unsettled on September 18, October 3-5, 9-10, 13

quiet to active on September 19-20, 23-24, 29-30, October 1-2

unsettled to active (September 25-28, October 11-12)

active to disturbed: not expected

Solar wind will intensify on September (19,) 22-23, 27-29, October (3-4,) 11-13

Note: Parentheses mean lower probability of activity enhancement. The predictability of changes remains lower because there are few unambiguous indications.

Steven Rudnick, W1KYB, Santa Fe, New Mexico, asked, “How did they come to the conclusion that we are in a new cycle when the sunspot number has been zero for 27 days now?”

Scientists probably looked at a couple of factors. One is the polarity of sunspots. As the sun transitions from one cycle to the next, the polarity of sunspots changes. It starts with a few sunspots having opposite polarity from sunspots in the recent cycle, then gradually it shifts so eventually the majority have the new cycle polarity.

The other factor is the smoothed sunspot number, which is an average based on an entire year of sunspot numbers. This reduces the noise in the numbers, so it is easier to see the trends.

The smoothed sunspot number for December 2019 would be based on the monthly sunspot numbers for approximately July 2019 through July 2020.

Here’s the data.

If you look at the monthly averages, they jump all over the place.

The monthly averages for September 2019 through March 2020 were 1.1, 0.40, 0.50, 1.5, 6.2, 0.20, and 1.5.

But the smoothed numbers for those same months were 3.1, 2.6, 2, 1.8, 2.2, 2.8, and currently undetermined for March, placing the lowest number in December.

At some point in the future, the current dearth of sunspots over the past month may just look like noise in retrospect. Or maybe not, should it continue. I hope it does not persist.

>From the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), predicted solar flux and sunspot numbers through December 2040.

Here’s NASA’s take on Solar Cycle 25.

Here’s the latest report from Space Weather Woman Tamitha Skov, WX6SWW.

Sunspot numbers for September 10 through 16, 2020 were 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, and 0, with a mean of 0. The 10.7-centimeter flux was 69.3, 68.7, 69.3, 69.8, 68.9, 68.8, and 69.5, with a mean of 69.2. Estimated planetary A indices were 2, 3, 5, 6, 11, 7, and 3, with a mean of 5.3. Middle latitude A index was 2, 2, 6, 7, 10, 8, and 3 with a mean of 5.4.

Riattivati i 963 kHz di Radio Tunisi Internazionale

 Sono stati riattivati nel tardo pomeriggio i 963 khz di Radio Tunisi Internazionale, la frequenza era inattiva dalla mattinata di lunedì quando si è abbattuto un'ondata di maltempo che ha interessato buona parte del Mediterraneo. Il segnale però risulterebbe molto più debole del solito, tanto da far prevalere anche in Sicilia le trasmissioni di Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation in isofrequenza. Ancora inattivi i 999 kHz da Malta il cui ripristino, secondo fonti interne all'emittente, richiederebbe almeno una settimana di lavoro. (G. Lorenzi)

``Hi, Glenn, despite the religious station on 4940 mentioning a lot of times "Colombia", and it has programs like "Lecciones de la Historia Colombiana", always announcing UT -4 time, instead of UT -5. Years ago a Venezuelan station transmitted on 4940 kHz, Radio Amazonas, Puerto Ayacucho. It is possible this religious station is using the Radio Amazonas transmitter? The religious station is heard every day here in Reinante, Lugo, North West of Spain with weak to very weak signal. This weekend I will be in Friol and there I will have better conditions to hear it. Best 73,s``

Puerto Ayacucho is right on the border with Colombia, near the NE corner of that country, and not too far from one of the TDoA results, Marahuaca national park, Amazonas, Venezuela (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4980, Sept 17 at 0623, not just a JBA carrier, but VP S8-S9 of music, presumed WRMI extra frequency/transmitter, maybe on more than exciter power, or a fluke propagational pipeline. Not // any other WRMI frequency, mostly TOMBS. Still nothing whatsoever about this on WRMI skedgrids --- at this hour half the 14 transmitters are not scheduled: #2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10, 14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Report on the Special “Mahalaya” program

Report on the Special “Mahalaya” program broadcast early this morning 17 Sept 2020 IST:

Like the previous years, I got up early in the morning to listen to the Special “ Mahalaya” program broadcast by different stations of AIR which ushers in the famous Durga Pooja festival of the people West Bengal and other places. Here is my detailed report of reception (indicating sign on timings)

(DXSWLs please note that 3.30 am is 2200 UTC)Sign on (IST) kHz

3.30 am : 666 New Delhi,
3.35 am : 819 New Delhi
3.48 am : 657 Kolkata, 1008 Kolkata
3.54 am : 675 Chhatarpur, 747 Lucknow, 774 Shimla, 956, 1260 Ambikapur, 1395 Bikaner
3.57 am : 756 Jagdalpur, 1125 Udaipur

4.20 am: 1179 Rewa, 1242 Varanasi
4.25 am: 648 Indore, 801 Jabalpur. 981 Raipur, 1593 Bhopal

The following frequencies reported in previous years were not heard:

792 Pune, 990 Jammu, 1044 Mumbai

Receiver: Yaesu FT 757 GX II
Antenna: Icom AH 710 (Folded Dipole)

This year I checked the “Live Streaming” of all AIR stations and heard 44 stations / channels like many FM Rainbow stations & FM stations including

4.35 am Guwahati sign on MW & FM.

Stations in South India carried this broadcast on FM Rainbow channels only, not on MW.Live streaming was not there of AIR Agartala, Bhuj, Jammu, Patna, Pune, Rajkot, FM Rainbow Visakhapatanam at that time.

No SW channels were observed this year, may be due to skip conditions

It is nice to see reports showing that many Dxers in India were awake early this morning to monitor the different AIR stations carrying the special Mahalaya programs.

Glenn Hauser logs September 16-17, 2020

 ** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Wed Sept 16 at 1551, no signal from LRA36 to Brasil remote, despite nominal weekly 14-16 UT schedule. Big RAE special in Spanish, German and English is planned for Saturday Sept 19 at 1500-2200, weather permitting (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 395-MCW kHz, Sept 16 at 0624 UT, NDB dash and YL, which is 1600 watts from Lynn Lake, and which appears to be at the end of the road in NW Manitoba.

401-MCW kHz, Sept 16 at 0621 UT, ND beacon dash and YPO, which is 500 watts from Peawanuck, Ontario. Must be this but had copied as YWO, missing a dit (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 16 before 2400 UT, anonymous missionary station is on with good signal into TWR Bonaire SDR, so since no one else is doing it, I try TDoA direxion-finding for the first time. I am not impressed, but maybe I am insufficiently expert in application. To get to it, find TDoA under extensions on the player. Get the map zoomed appropriately. Enter up to six SDRs to employ. Run it as each tries GPS for one minute. Then algorithm gets to work.

First try comes up with -10.50, -134.50, i.e. somewhere in the S Pacific; I think not. It seems I can`t use Bonaire itself since that one of the three SDRs for TDoA is ``all busy`` including by me. Another try with Vilhena western Brasil participating, comes up with 12.40, -64.60 which is Caribbean between Grenada and Curacao; Getting warm??

Bogotá SDR is receiving a poor signal on 4940, so now I start from there, and can bring up three closest TWRs, Bonaire, Boa Vista and DR to do the TDoA. At 2350 these come up with 3.80, -65.60, which is Marahuaca National Park, Amazonas, in remote S Central Venezuela! This  might be believable, not too far from Boa Vista, Brasil. But almost an hour later at 0045 UT Sept 16, I retry with exactly same parameters still entered, and this time it finds ``most likely`` 18.60, -63.80 which is between BVI and Anguilla.

I`m afraid Timed-Delay-of-Arrival is so unreliable, self-contradictory, as to be useless. Anyhow, none of these tries came up with anywhere inside Colombia. For giggles, I finally enter some known frequencies as picked up in Bogotá: 5800 WRMI it places at 9.40, -70.80, in Trujillo, Venezuela! 9955 WRMI at 16.20, -71.00, asea south of DR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sept 16 at 1428, RHC is S9+10 but extremely suptorted as usual, ruining the music of `Sonido Cubano`; // 15230 is only S5-S6, undermodulated but not distorted; // 13700 is loud and clear, lacking spurs. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 7, KOCO-TV ``5``, Sept 16 at 2205 UT, surprised to find besides local news on 5-1, its only extra channel, 5-2 is running an acting-president Drumpf, Liar-in-Chief press conference apparently live, instead of MeTV which per onscreen guide is supposed to be in The Flintstones; o, if only! KOCO is Hearst-owned. Have not noticed them putting any other live or Breaking ``news`` on 5-2 except for an extra hour-early local news at 9 pm CT, before 5-1 does so at 10 pm (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Wed Sept 16 at 2215, VOT and NSS RTTY add up to S9/+20, but already in music fill, no Letterbox; 2219 ID and more music. Cannot notch out the RTTY CCI, but I can notch out the VOT carrier itself. Something`s always awry at Ankara, i.e. in frequency management; and programming failures (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 395-MCW kHz, Sept 16 at 1421 UT, ND beacon CA, which is 25 watts from Newton - Harvs KS north of Wichita; still tuned here after YL from Manitoba 8 hours earlier; not then, but now there is very weak CCI, probably from ULS, 395, Ulysses in western KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2051 monitoring: confirmed, JBA in HNL, Wed Sept 16 at 2127 the 2100 on WBCQ 7490v.

Also confirmed UT Thu Sept 17 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair at UTwente.

Next WOR 2052 should be ready by early UT Fri Sept 18 for first broadcast at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 5010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search Sept 16 at 0614 UT: 621, 684, 711, 774(2), 837, 936, 1107, 1413, 1503 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Bbc News, "sforbiciata" da 80 milioni: tagliati 450 posti di lavoro

La crisi nel mondo dell'informazione non risparmia neanche i giganti del settore. Bbc News ha appena annunciato la decisione di tagliare ben 450 posti di lavoro, l'unica strada percorribile per raggiungere l'obiettivo di un risparmio di 80 milioni di sterline entro il 2022.

Ad annunciare la profonda “sforbiciata” di lavoratori è stata la stessa emittente sul proprio sito web. Bbc News impiega attualmente circa 6.000 persone, di cui 1.700 al di fuori del Regno Unito. Il suo budget dopo l'entrata in vigore delle modifiche sarà di circa 480 milioni di sterline all'anno. 

Il capo della Bbc News Fran Unsworth ha dichiarato: "La Bbc deve affrontare le nuove modalità con cui gli utenti si interfacciano con noi modo. Dobbiamo rimodellare Bbc News per i prossimi cinque o dieci anni in un modo che consenta di risparmiare ingenti somme di denaro. Stiamo spendendo troppe risorse per la trasmissione tradizionale e non abbastanza per il digitale".

Glenn Hauser logs September 15-16, 2020

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Sept 15 at 2131, RAE via WRMI is listed as Italian this hour, but since COVID-19 hit, each language hour could be filled by bits in any or all of their 8 languages, which explains why they are in English now talking about the 100th anniversary of the first radio broadcast on August 27, which presented Wagner`s `Parsifal` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. New VOA relay via HJHJ 600: see separate post headed VENEZUELA [non]

** COLOMBIA. 4940, Sept 16 at 0115, quick check for anonymous new missionary station, via TWR Bonaire SDR, after concentrating on 600, finds a JBA signal here, probably only the Peruvian. No TDOA tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sept 15 at 2112, RHC Spanish is suptorted/JBM; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC. I am beginning to suspect sabotage somewhere along the line from studio to STL to transmitter to monitoring; someone preventing clear distribution of Commie propaganda. Or maybe just low morale, don`t-give-a-damn attitude. All it takes is one weakest link (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY. 14222-USB, Sept 15 at 2115, IZ0GYR, Antonio in Rome, CQ 20, working N1EW, and being repeatedly called by WA7TEN. Sometimes under an open carrier. Look at his profusely illustrated website as he is an artist and famous? actor:

IZ0GYR Italy flag Italy
Antonino Iuorio
Viale dei Quattro Venti 10
Rome 00152
Italy

https://www.qrz.com/lookup/iz0gyr
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 13630, Sept 15 at 2121, dead air at S7-S8; then bits of talk breaking thru in American English, so must be CRI relay, altho now supposed to be toward end of sesquihour in Arabic. Wiggle that patchcord (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 15 at 2220, via UTwente, VOT is VG with music, 2222 COVID PSA; while at 2248 direct to here I find it S5-S6 poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [non]. 9740, Tue Sept 15 at 2128, too-well-e-nun-ci-a-ted Q&A about where`s the A-mer-i-can room in a mu-se-um, i.e. a language lesson, S7-S9 in English only: ``Go down-stairs, then turn right...`` and chopped off the air at 2129.5*, leaving us hanging. It`s VOA French via Woofferton UK, supposedly at 2100-2130 M-F only. Don`t blame Encompass for the chop, but VOA where it no longer matters to match programming to SW transmission times (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0414 UT September 16

Glenn Hauser logs: new VOA via Colombia 600 to Venezuela

** VENEZUELA [non]. You may recall that VOA has been trying to get into Venezuela via a MW transmitter in an adjacent country. Guyana was approached some 6 months ago about using a 560 kHz relay, but VOA was turned down. TWR Bonaire, which owes the USA something for licensing KTWR Guam, would seem the obvious choice, but they must have higher priorities for 800 kHz, at least during prime time.


On September 11, Don Moore informed me: ``COLOMBIA - Starting next week VOA Spanish programs for Venezuela will be relayed on 600 kHz (listed 50 kW) via Radio Libertad in Barranquilla, Colombia. The broadcasts are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. on September 15th, or 0000 UTC September 16th. The schedule I received shows the relays as being three hours long Monday to Friday (local days) and two hours long on Saturday and Sunday. (VOA via Don Moore)``

So I`m all set to monitor this début via remotes in the area. Before 0000, none of them are any good for 600 kHz except TWR Bonaire, where I noticed there is also someone in Barinas, Venezuela tuned to 600:

600 kHz, Sept 15 at 2353 UT, sounds like a preacher in Spanish, with QRM. But at 0000 Sept 16, Radio Rebelde is mostly dominant, no VOA heard yet. There are basically two stations mixing. On the Key West SDR I compare to 5025, distorted Rebelde, and find no match at first, but then I can hear a match in the background of 600, and the foreground talk is about Venezuela.

600 would not seem a very good choice, but at least there are no YVs on it -- yet; there may not have been (m)any other options, and R. Libertad is a good 50 kW. Nearest major competitor may be 40 kW in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Barranquilla is 863 km = 536 statute miles from Caracas, with Maracaibo about midway. At distancefromto.net if you enter Caracas, Venezuela, looking closely at the map, that merely reaches the west end of Caracas? province, near where the map is labeled Carabobo. You have to enter ``Caracas, Caracas, Venezuela`` to get to the capital city. The path is unfortunately all over-land since Bqa is on the NW coast. But this will be relying on skywave.

How does that compare to the CubaRM? R. Rebelde on 600 is in the east, San Germán, Holguín, at 1494 km = 928 statute miles = 807 nautical miles from Caracas; and its bearing is NW from there. Venzies with direxional radios may be able to null it and get mostly HJHJ/VOA. Is it not convenient that this ``opposition`` service is already named Radio Libertad, but that`s coincidental as it goes way back deriving from the Bqa newspaper La Libertad: https://cadenaradiallalibertad.com.co/sitio/

Guess what, I don`t see anything about hooking up with VOA on its website, nor is there any specific program schedule to be seen.

Resuming what I am axually able to hear on 600: at 0016, Rebelde is dominant // 5025 as VOA fades; 0022 RR music // 5025 via KW. 0027 ``VOA Noticias`` definitely heard, 0028 again concerning Venezuela; 0031 VOA ID, ``una producción de La Voz de America``.

At 0049 I`ve brought up the ``listen live`` link here, first of seven stations https://cadenaradiallalibertad.com.co/sitio/radios/ and there is the VOA relay loud & clear, with program ID ``Buenos Dias, America`` --- so it`s anything but live! Rather played back from the morning some 12 hours ago. 0101 concluding that program, with ID again, and now also for ``600 AM, en Barranquilla, emsisora afiliada con sistema de noticias de la VOA``; Then own callsign ID as ``HJHJ, 50 mil vatios...`; at 0114 another joint ID. Perhaps they have now switched to the less stale tarde VOA program, `El Mundo al Día`, also available as a 32-minute podcast, but archive shows M-F only, as nothing ever happens on weekends.

VOA website does not say anything about this either that I can find, but you can get their program audios --- are there any others left in Spanish?
