DX Fanzine nr. 44 – April 2017

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, HA=Hausa, IT=Italian, JJ=Japanese, KK= Korean, 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.

Serbian: 17:30-17:45, 22:30-22:45, 02:15-02:30, 10:00-10:15.
But that is not all: Thanks to Christian Milling of shortwaveservice.com and Jeff White of WRMI, some 
transmissions of Radio Tirana are also relayed on shortwaves via Kall Krekel in Germany and Okeechobee in 
the USA. Here is the schedule (Times in UTC). Monday to Saturday to Europe, on 6005 kHz via Kall Krekel: 
1800-1830 in Italian, 1830-1900 in French, 1900-1930 in English, 1930-2000 in German (This also on 3985 kHz). 
Monday to Friday to North America, on 5950 kHz, via WRMI in Okechobee: 2300-2330 in English. 
(Antonello Napolitano, Taranto-ITALY).

CONGO: Radio Congo Chaine Nationale was observed on the Eutelsat/Hot Bird 13E satellite on 29 April 2017 
signing off at 0000 (0100 in Congo) with the National Anthem. The speaker mentioned that programmes restart at 
0500 hours (0400 UTC). This schedule is a little bit different from what you can see on WRTH 2017 (0420-2300). 
Programmes were in both, French and Vernacular. There was also an occasional station identification announcement
in Spanish a couple of minutes before the start of a Salsa music show. It should also be added that only the FM 
frequency is mentioned on the air! Radio Congo can be heard in Europe (See Log section) on 6115 kHz with a poor
signal, usually around 1800. (Antonello Napolitano, Taranto-ITALY).

ITALY: Here is the current schedule of Marconi Radio International (A-17 period), until 29 October 2017: 
On Tuesdays, from 17.00 to 20.00 UTC on 7700 kHz (Alternative 7690) USB Mode, with a power of 100 watts. Their 
schedule is liable to change and additional broadcasts can be aired occassionaly. As usual, when this occurs,  
a circular message is being sent to all listeners in their mailing list as wel as shortwave community. 
Their broadcasts include some kind of programmes now sadly missing from most shortwave radio stations: a weekly
old style DX show in English “Italian Short Wave Panorama” (there is also the Italian version called “Panorama 
Onde Corte”) with lot of recent logs  as well as a Mailbag show in Italian (“Casella Postale Elettronica”) on 
air on the first Tuesday of each month, with repeats during the following transmissions in the same month. 
Station identification announcements are not only in English and Italian but also in French, German, Japanese, 
Romanian, Spanish and Catalan. DX shows “Italian Short Wave Panorma” and “Panorama Onde Corte” can also be 
heard  throughout IBC, Italian Broadcasting Corporation, using transmitter facilities of WRMI, in Okeechobee 
(Florida) in the USA, Radio Channel 292, in Rohrbach Waal (6070 kHz) in Germany, and Radio Studio X (1584 kHz), 
in Pistoia, Italy. For more details, including times and frequencies, please visit the website of IBC, Italian 
Broadcasting Corporation, at: http://ibcradio.webs.com (MRI Facebook page). 
 
KUWAIT: Radio Kuwait after two years of absence is back to shortwaves with its English programme, heard 
with a quite good signal in both Europe and North America, from 1800 to 2100 on 15540 kHz. On 28th April the 
station annnounced on the air they wish to receive reception reports to this (unknown to me!) E-mail address: 
kwtfreq@hotmail.com  Surprisingly, I found that delivery of my report to this e-mail address failed 
permanently! The same occurred with the well known official E-mail address: Kwtfreq@media.gov.kw! However 
Radio Kuwait mentioned also the following postal address and fax number for reception reports: Ministry of 
Information, Engineering Affairs, Department of Frequencies, P.O. Box 967, Safat, 13010 Kuwait; Fax:
+965 22415498 (Antonello Napolitano, Taranto-ITALY).
