INTERNATIONAL DX NEWS AUSTRIA At the end of April the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF) started a a new service which aim is to provide an informative and comprehensive programme for Austria and the entire region affected by the Yugoslav conflict. The programme includes world news and service information in Serbian, Albanian, Bosnian, German and English and can be heard daily from 18.00 to 23.00, on 1476 and 5945 kHz. This new service is an extension of an experimental medium wave service Radio 1476 which is being running for two years and which is already heard in the region. (Media Network). BELGIUM/GERMANY As from 3rd May, French speaking Belgium station RTBF has started a special French and Albanian language transmission under the name "Radio Balkans". It can be heard daily from 21.00 to 22.00 in the first national radio programme on FM and medium wave on 621 kHz and also on short waves via a Deutsche Telekom transmitter in Julich (Germany) on 7345 kHz. (Media Network on Radio Netherlands). BONAIRE The new "Trans World Radio" magazine says that TWR Bonaire will turn off their 500-kW 800kHz transmitter later this year. It will be replaced by a 100-kW solid-state XMTR (manufacturer unknown, but Continental likely) and a 4-tower directional array, to cover primary target areas of Cuba, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and the Amazon region. The reason is to reduce operating costs, as the 500-kW rig uses LOTS of electricity. (Glen Kippel via Hard-Core-DX) GERMANY/LUXEMBOURG Radio Tele Europa, which normally broadcasts on FM 100.8 MHz for the southern part of Luxembourg, has hired two hours of airtime on the Deutsche Telekom facility in Julich near the German/Dutch border. The station is on the air on Sundays only between 14.00 and 16.00 on 5975 kHz. (Media Network Radio Netherlands). LITHUANIA On May 7, 1999, Lithuanian Radio expanded its presence on shortwave by adding about an hour of broadcasts daily via Sitkunai shortwave station in Central Lithuania. Broadcasts are compiled of different program segments of the 1st and 2nd Home Service programs, and are on the air Monday to Friday 1330-1435 UTC, Saturdays and Sundays 1330-1325 UTC. The frequency is 9555 kHz which hasn't been used by the Sitkunai station for more than decade. Earlier this year, the station installed a new 100 kW Continental 418F transmitter which replaced the old 50 kW unit on April 1, 1999. The new transmitter is now used for all SW broadcasts originating from Sitkunai, i.e. daily 0900-1200 UTC (carrying Lithuanian Radio), Sat 1330-1325 UTC (Lithuanian Radio), and Sun 1200-1425 UTC (Universelles Leben and Lithuanian Radio). Broadcasts before 1330 UTC are beamed at 259 degrees via newly installed curtain antenna HR2/2/.5 (which is non-reversable), but after 1330 UTC they are routed to the old curtain antenna HR4/4/.5 and beamed at 79 degrees (the old antenna is reversable and can operate both at 79 and 259 degrees). Because the old antenna can not handle 100 kW of power, the output power of the transmitter is reduced to 50 kW after 1330 UTC. Broadcasts of Lithuanian Radio starting at 1330 UTC are meant for listeners in Russia and belarus, therefore the majority of the programming is not in Lithuanian. The schedule: Lithuanian: Mon-Fri 1330-1355, Sat-Sun 1330-1345 Russian: Mon-Fri 1355-1425, Sat-Sun 1345-1415; Belarusian: Mon-Fri 1425-1435, Sat-Sun 1415-1425 Lithuanian part is not a rebroadcast of the 1s/2nd Home Service program, but is a special program composed of features broadcast earlier on Lithuanian Radio's 1st program. Because of the new broadcasts, the morning block of 0900-1200 UTC has been reshaped and is now composed of: 0900-0930: Mon-Fri: relay of Lithuanian Radio 1st px (LR-1); Sat-Sun: selected programs from LR-1; 0930-1000: daily: LR Foreign Service in English; 1000-1030: daily: LR Foreign Service in Lithuanian; 1030-1100: daily: selected programs of LR-1 or LR-2; 1100-1200: Mon-Sat: relay of LR-1; 1100-1110: Sun: relay of LR-1; 1110-1200: Sun: selected programs of LR-2. The full time-frequency power-beam schedule is now: Daily: 0900-1200, 9710 kHz, 100 kW, 259 deg. Sundays: 1200-1330, 9710 kHz, 100 kW, 259 deg. Mon-Fri: 1330-1435, 9555 kHz, 50 kW, 79 deg. Sat-Sun: 1330-1425, 9555 kHz, 50 kW, 79 deg. (Sigitas Zilionis via Hard-Core-DX). DEE EX PISTOLS In the next weeks Alfa Lima International and Bandonica Radio will make a few test transmissions around 11.480 or 11.490 kHz. The transmissions will be carried first over a transmittere of Radio Bandonica and, if all goes well, also via Alfa Lima equipment.
