DX Fanzine No. 46 – June 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.

Logs from Dave Valko in Dunlo, Pennsylvania-USA

Below loggings from Dave Valko are also included, in the form of very brief log entry with less details than 
originally provided, in the Medium/Short Wave Tips section which is always on the top of DX FANZINE.  

7460 MOLDOVA R.Payam e-Doost (relay)  0228 signal already on w/tone going off and on. 0230 pgm 
start w/usual trumpet and percussion fanfare and dramatic mx w/opening by W. 0231 voice-over apparent pgm 
intro. By M, then diff. M w/ment of Payam e-Doost, and into pgm w/M host. Good signal and a little QRN.  
(Valko 26 May)

11734.98 BRAZIL R.Transmundial 1733 end of song then M anncr in PT.  Got ID and e-mail anmnt later. Getting 
a low level het with slightly weaker Zanzibar above on 11735.  Surprised to hear Transmundial here as it’s 
not very common at this time.  (Valko 26 May)
 
9620 AUSTRIA Requiem for Radio (pgm relay via Moosbrunn) Didn’t know it at the time but found the very strong 
signal at 2352 w/pgm of droning organ mx and other sounds, and gone at 0000 w/out anmnts. Also hrd on 9690 
(Nauen Germany) equally as strong. Youtube video of reception can be found using this link:
https://youtu.be/xByytGjxAXs  (Valko 26 May)

6220.01 PIRATE (EUROPE) Laser Hot Hits 0044 Pop mx at t/in. 0046 M anncr tlk between songs. 0050 jingle.
Short canned ID by M at 0053 and next song. Had a band of noise on the low side which ruined reception.  
Otherwise the best it’s been heard in a long time.  (Valko 27 May)

6930U PIRATE (NA) VORW (Voice of the Report of the Week)  0102 continuous chatter by M about fast food 
restaurants including Krispy Kreme.  0107 said that that was the “review of the latest uploads” and mentioned 
“VORW radio show”, then continued tlk abt Radio Shack and shortwave listening.  0112 sound of airplane going 
overhead, and again very loudly at 0116 (must have been recording the show at an airport). 0142 another ID.  
Still going at 0144 reading letters.  Fair at best and noisy.  (Valko 27 May)

6950.28 PIRATE (NA) He Man R.  0102 radio drama by M w/instru. mx.  0105-0107 song “One Chance”. 0119 canned 
“He Man R.” repeating jingle, then song “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In”. 1031 same 
type jingle ID as hrd at 0119. Deadair at 0132, and then going off and on, and gone. Came back on at 0137.
Strong. (Valko 27 May)

6850.5 PIRATE (NA) Requiem for Radio (pgm relay via Pirate Radio Boston)  Should have started at 2300 but
didn’t hear anything until 2303, then got noticeably stronger a min. later.  Pgm of same droning organ mx 
and other sounds such as Gregorian chant-like vcls at 2305, and UTEs and number stns, etc.  Hrd the other 
“tracks” of the pgm broadcast on 5129.8 (WBCQ), 9620 (Austria), 9690 (Germany), and 11580 (WRMI).  WRMI was 
the best. There were never any anmnts and all went off around 0000.  Pulled out the R-388, NRD-535D, and E1 
receivers to tune in and record each freq.  Strung up a temporary 40 foot +/- random wire for 11580 on the E1. 
Had the Perseus recording 9620 and 9690 using the Delta loop antenna, the R-388 tuned to 5129.8 with the 
Wellbrook ALA1530S, and this freq on the NRD-535D also using the Wellbrook.  Combined pieces of all 
freqs/tracks at 2 different times to create the complete pgm in mono.  Here is the link to the combined 
recording (2313, 2347 UTC)  https://app.box.com/s/joq1bs8ndct4168ln6owvioll8dzblxl  Despite the lower 2 freqs
being a bit noisy, the final recording came out pretty well.  Here's a link to a recording of all 5 freqs 
separately in order  https://app.box.com/s/6av2x72fjmco6juc9n21xrsk9s5o4ona  (Valko 27 May)

6870U PIRATE (NA) The Bangalore Poacher 0042 continuous pieces of soundbites and ads mostly in 
Indian-accented EG w/effect of occas. words rapidly repeated.  0048 CW ID as “This is The Bangalore Poacher”.  
0053 two short melodies repeated like an IS, then “Airhead” by Thomas Dolby until 0058.  0058 what sounded like 
a few words from Statler & Waldorf from The Muppet Show, and ending with George Zeller saying “"It was really 
about the worst station I ever heard on shortwave.  In fact it was so bad that it was actually entertaining in 
that respect", and off the air.  Good signal and 100% copy.  Youtube video of reception can be found using this 
link  https://youtu.be/pzxdAM34qDQ  (Valko 28 May)

15527 CLANDESTINE (TADZHIKISTAN) V.O. Tibet Weak at 1302 w/Tibetan tlk by M sounding like a phone-in report 
w/W studio anncr once or twice, then went off at 1305 at the exact same time 15522 came on. (Valko 2 June)

9810 IRAN V.O. the Islamic Rep. of Iran Fairly strong signal but extremely weak modulation w/vcl song at 1922 
t/in.  1923 EG ID anmnt by M barely readable.  (Valko 2 June)

5985 MYANMAR R. Myanmar  Was surprised to find a signal here at 2301. Nothing else is currently scheduled 
there at that time. W pgm host in lang. mixed w/M singing in an almost talking tone and cadence and also some 
traditional SE Asian instru. mx. Gradually faded to inaudibility in abt half an hour and practically gone by 
0000 as it should as morning progressed there.  Checked a web rx in Khimki Russia and a decent signal there 
with the same pgming.  Myanmar “long path” is very rare here, and especially so, being so close to the 
solstice. Audio recording at https://app.box.com/s/svyqgzllt4j9uynzi30dijucs0gjo4zv (includes both reception 
here and in Khimki Russia with clips of reception here being weaker, of course). (Valko 2 June)

11870 ALASKA KNLS (New Life Station) Caught the closing EG ID by M w/sked for EG pgming at 1254, one last 
Pop song, some deadair, then off. Kind of surprised it was so readable. Audio recording at  
https://app.box.com/s/4oplz5zkyscp5vxjtf0u05nc12m9b8q9  (Valko 3 June)

11885 ALASKA (USA) KNLS  Was recording 11870 to catch upcoming start of EG pgm and found 11885 on the air 
unscheduled in Mandarin w/Pop mx, M w/tlk including ID, deadair, then start of EG pgm w/ID anmnt by W and IS 
//11870. Both fairly strong but this freq slightly better. Is this a new transmission, an error, or testing??
Posted a Youtube video of the reception which can be viewed using this link:  https://youtu.be/AisW-DfKeXU  
Use 480p setting for best viewing. Was in Mandarin before 1200 UTC, and in English after.  
Went off at 1259 followed by 11870. (Valko 5 June)

3-4 June 2017:  Micro-DXpedition RX:  Perseus SDR ANT:  313 foot BOG at 185° Duration: 2245-0010 UTC.

5985 MYANMAR R.Myanmar Signal already on with 1 khz tone at 2345. 2255 tone off. Sounded like it started 
w/mx at 2300:06, and W anncr abt 40 sec. later. More mx and W again at 2302, then M. Wasn’t quite as good as 
at home yesterday. (Valko 3 June)

6924.4 PIRATE (NA) Recycle R. 2316 closing ID, “Glory Glory We Adore Thee”, then SSTV. Weak but SSTV fairly 
strong. Looked like he was back on 6899.98 by 2356, which is the freq where he’s been hrd before.(Valko 3 June)

6880U PIRATE (NA) Clever Name R. 2318 end of mx and ID w/e-mail, deadair, then canned network ID and e-mail 
addr, and canned ID jingle.  Strong. (Valko 3 June)

14680H CUBA RHC While checking for 14670 CHU, found this 2 X 7340 harmonic of R.Havana Cuba. Poor to fair and 
fady. (Valko 3 June)

6930U PIRATE (NA)  WRRI (R. Random Int.) “Cruel Summer” by Bananarama at 2357, deadair, and into “Safety Dance” 
at 0000. 0006 “Rock the Casbah”. Fairly good signal. Fady w/some QRN. Had moved to 9945 while I was driving   
home.(Valko 3-4 June)

9945U PIRATE WRRI Found out from HF Underground this had turned up here and did indeed hear mx at 0035 but 
couldn’t recognize the song.  0037 into REM song and faded badly in 2 min. 0045 able to hear ID by YL “WRRI ??, 
WRRI, R. Random Int.” and immediately into R. Australia’s “Waltzing Matilda” IS, then off.  (Valko 4 June)

6925.28 PIRATE Ion R. Surprised to find this Pirate on the air in the early morning w/Pop/Rock mx when I tuned 
in at 1223. 1225 apparent comedy skit ending w/live M voice ID sounding like “You’ve been listening to Ion R.  
ionradioshortwave@gmail.com.” Then “Beautiful Sunday” by Daniel Boone and “Love is in the Air by John Paul 
Young, “Ion Radio” Morse code ID at 1233, “Magic” by Pilot, e-mail addr in code at 1240, “Thunderstuck” by 
AC/DC, and several Blues songs.  1254 e-mail in code again, and ended w/SSTV scan. Poor w/quick QSB and a lot 
of lcl QRM. Youtube video of reception can be found using this link https://youtu.be/7rYHWGQFDhA (Valko 4 June)

9-11 June 2017: Perseus SDR with Wellbrook ALA1530S loop and 153 foot Delta loop antennas.

9685 AUSTRALIA Reach Beyond Australia 1117-1128 Somewhat slow and deliberate EG pgm abt Baseball rules and 
“Almost Perfect” segment of Armando Galarraga’s near perfect game. 1129 instru. mx, and into next pgm in Chin 
Hakha. No ID between pgms. Fair signal. (Valko, 9 June)
 
9799.61 EGYPT R.Cairo  2205 AR mx, 4+1 higher pitch time ticks at 2215, then W w/EG nx ending w/ID at 2217. 
2219 ID w/intro for “Egyptian Challenge” pgm, then off the air. Back on w/OC a min. later, and pgm already 
continuing. Good signal but audio over modulated. (Valko, 9 June)
 
9514.97 BRAZIL R.Marumby 2224-2300 “Voz do Brasil” // to other ZYs including 9665.87 Voz Missionaria, 9674.92 
Cancao Nova, 11856.02 Aparecida, and 15190.05 Inconfidencia. 2300 instru. mx, 2301 usual “Marumby” singing 
jingle by women, then canned ID/promo w/ment of Marumby, sev. more canned anmnts, and into next pgm at 2304.  
Fady w/some 9505 WHRI slop QRM, but stronger than usual and readable. (Valko, 9 June)
 
6940U PIRATE (NA) Seven Trees Radio Hard Rock, almost Metal mx then short final ID by M at 2300 as “Welcome to 
Seven Trees Radio, where we pull the plug every day”, and off. Came back on w/ID at 2304 and into current mx, 
then went off. Came back on again at 2314 with the same ID and played the song “Who Do You Love” by George 
Thorogood. Glad he came back w/IDs so I could get a recording. Youtube video of the reception can be found 
using this link: https://youtu.be/p4ZiFDbt1q4  (Valko, 10 June)
 
6930U PIRATE (NA) WEAK/Weak R. Noted after 0005 w/mostly Punk mx, although they also played “Ride Captain Ride” 
by Blues Image, and only novelty C&W song. Many IDs by W including “We are going crazy crazy, we are going  
crazy, very crazy, Weak R., going crazy” at 0013. Comedy ads. At 0015, someone came on overtop repeating 
“Welcome to Strong R.” which sounded like the anncr from Seven Trees R. When the bdcst ended at 0017, there 
were 3 SSTV images aired, but they didn’t seem to be from WEAK. In fact the last was from Pee Wee. Youtube 
video of the reception can be found using this link: https://youtu.be/xOJ8MImKht8  (Valko, 11 June)
 
6205.01 PIRATE (EUROPE) Laser Hot Hits 0128 Rock song then M w/Off Shore Echos ad, then back to mx. 0133 ID 
jingle, and another song. Thought this might be someone else as they weren’t on nominal 6220. (Valko, 11 June)
 
6925.2v PIRATE (NA) Ion R. Weak signal at 1204, coming up at 1208, then some sort of rumbling effect at 1209 
which turned out to be “ambient music” according to the op. Finally recognized “Ebony Eyes” by Bob Welch at 
1224, Simple ID by W at 1225, then “Love is in the Air” by John Paul Young. Best at 1228. SSTV and off at 1240. 
Seemed to be having xmtr trouble. No carrier present most of the time and drifting around. (Valko, 11 June)
 
7850 CANADA CHU 1230 nothing but an OC here. Strong signal. Same on 3330 but a much weaker signal. Must be 
having some technical difficulties. 14670 too weak to tell if there was only an OC there, and the web rxs 
didn’t have it any better. (Valko, 11 June)

11885 ALASKA (USA) KNLS 1457 M anncr sounded like Mandarin ending w/instru. signature, then 1458-1500 deadair, 
and 1500 IS twice and off. Came back on w/IS in progress and into Mandarin pgming. (Valko, 11 June)
 
14670 CANADA CHU Indeed, only an OC here at 1900 when the signal was much improved. Shortly thereafter, Ron 
Howard forwarded a quote that they had a suspect piece of equipment and they would be looking into the problem. 
By 2045, everything as back to normal on all freqs. Reception video of the OCs on all freqs can be found using 
this link: https://youtu.be/Ox78B0nWFbI  (Valko, 11 June)

6924.2 PIRATE (NA) Insane R. From 2343- Soundbites mixed w/mx. Radio story abt a “regular guy” who became a 
time anncr in Washington DC. Unrecognizable Rock songs. 0002 M whistling and saying he liked to whistle. 0005 
repeating “Insane R.” IDs. Another song. 0011 repeating IDs again, and Bluesy song. Went off at 0019. 
Massive S9+25 signal. (Valko, 11-12 June)
