DX Fanzine nr. 29 – January 2016

DX Fanzine, an electronic newsletter which was originally edited in 1999/2000, brings together tips and news as contributed by individual DXers or ascertained from different sources. We are interested in any change about frequencies, times, language-services, transmitters, programme contents, phone and fax-numbers, electronic and postal address, station personnel.
The purpose of DX Fanzine, which doesn’t pretend to be in competition with any other electronic DX newsletter, is to provide timely and topical news and information to shortwave enthusiasts worldwide.
It is available on the web at http://www.dxfanzine.com and updated as soon as loggings, DX news, frequency upadates as well as QSL notes are received from any SWL around the world.
Although the primary platform for delivery of DX FANZINE information remains its web site, it is turned into a pdf file, (where you can see the final version of it with loggings and information, just as they appear online), a couple of days after the end of each month and sent out FREE
to anyone who has subscribed. The current as well as the previous editions of DX Fanzine (including those of years 1999/2000!) can be accessed from its home page and are there almost indefinitely.

NB: All times, days and dates are day/month GMT-UTC, unless otherwise stated.

Logs are entered in frequency order. Reception quality abbreviations: P = Poor, F = Fair, G = Good, E = Excellent.

Language Abbreviations: AA=Arabic, CC=Chinese, CT=Catalan, DD=Dutch, EE=English, FF: French, GG= German, IT=Italian, JJ=Japanese, PP=Portoguese, RM=Romanian, RR=Russian, SS=Spanish, VV=Vernacular

Material from DX Fanzine may be redistributed, posted to any other location, published or used for broadcast, provided it be fully credited to DX Fanzine and the original and intermediate sources.

According to an announcement over the air the Italian programme of Radio Tunis International as from 4th January

CRI,  5985 kHz, verified an electronic report in 23 days with a F/D printed QSL card. The report was sent to:
kiswahili@cri.com.cn and crieng@cri.com.cn. Four days after having sent my electronic report I received an E-mail 
message from Xie of CRI's Swahili section. (Antonello Napolitano, Taranto-ITALY). ERRATUM
Dear colleagues, please take note that in our DX Fanzine nr. 29 of  December 2015 I included an item about Radio 
Congo on 5985 kHz, but I  made a significant mistake unintentionally. In fact, instead of Radio Congo I heard 
China Radio International’s Swahili service as they have confirmed (and QSLed) after they listened to my recording 
of what I heard on 5985 kHz, which includes an African music show presented by a male DJ. The programme,  was  
probably focused on the Zimbabwean musician Oliver Mtukudzi as  five of his songs were played during monitored 
time: Ndakuvara,  Wasakara,  Shanda, Hear Me Lord,  Todii. I thought it was unlikely that CRI could air a show 
featuring  a single artist from Zimbabwe, as that is a country in which Swahili is not spoken. But I was wrong. 
It was just CRI!  It should be also mentioned that  at 1744  I reported that CRI appeared on 5985 kHz, preventing
the clear reception of Radio  Congo. Probably I was  a little bit tired as it was simply a CRI programme that 
follows another. Thanks to Glen Hauser for his feedback who stimulated me to further investigate about reception 
of that station on 5985 kHz. I hope those of you that have subscribed to DX Fanzine will consider the total body 
of my work and passion for short wave listening and see my last log  about Radio Congo for what it was – a clumsy 
as well as bona-fide mistake. Again my apologies for any inconvenient. Antonello Napolitano.

Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces the release of our Year of the Monkey QSL. The Year of the Monkey begins 
February 8, 2016 and ends January 27, 2017. The design is used with permission from the United Nations Postal

first class postage stamp. Those born in a monkey year are said to be optimistic, adventurous, humorous, 
forthright and to-the-point, and intelligent. Monkeys have strong personalities and are witty, but also 
mischievous, clever and curious about the world around them. The Chinese New Year is celebrated in many countries 
around the world. This is RFA’s 60th QSL and is used to confirm all valid RFA reception reports from January-April 
2016.Created by Congress in 1994 and incorporated in 1996, RFA broadcasts in Burmese, Cantonese, Khmer, Korean to 
North Korea, Lao, Mandarin (including the Wu dialect), Vietnamese, Tibetan (Uke, Amdo, and Kham), and Uyghur. RFA
