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.

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.

In fact it was so bad that it was actually entertaining in that respect", and off the air. Good signal and 100% copy.

(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.

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.

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.

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.
