DX Fanzine No. 54 – February 2018

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 in 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 updates, 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.

ITALY ON MEDIUM WAVES

by Antonello Napolitano. Welcome to this first edition of “List of private MW stations in Italy”. Unlike other lists that you can find over the Internet, this publication only lists stations currently on the air or temporarily off-air. Also included is information on how to contact the stations (E-mail and Web sites), QSL policies and when known transmitter powers and future plans. I have compiled this list by assembling information received directly from the stations and my own research. I have done my best to keep mistakes to a minimum. Feedback from DXers with corrections and/or comments on the usefulness of this publication are always welcome. The majority of Italian MW stations are modest affairs, with limited technical know-how, small budgets and few trained personnel. These factors result in a lack of definitive information that is standard in most other countries of the world. Solid data on hours of transmission, programmes, frequencies, and contacts are difficult to obtain because station practices themselves change often. Transmitters are often homemade, limited to a power output in the range of 20-100 watts and connected to very simple antennas, so reception is generally restricted to city limits. Another point to be mentioned is the fact that frequencies sometimes change, and new ones or old ones appear or reappear. With a few exceptions, most stations go on the air during weekends and/or the frequencies rarely tend to be used all the day. Last but not least: most stations operate from the North of Italy (especially from the regions of Lombardia and Veneto), a few from the central part of the country (Toscana and Emilia Romagna) and, after the disappearance of Gold 1593 located in Sicily, virtually none from the South. In compiling this list I have been helped by the ideas and information from some DXers who have monitored the frequencies used by the Italian private medium wave stations. Special thanks to Roberto Scaglione, administrator of Facebook Group onde medie italia (www.ondemedieitalia.it) targeted at Medium Wave broadcasters and enthusiasts of Italy.

Logs from Dave Valko in Dunlo Pennsylvanya-USA

RX: Perseus SDR with Wellbrook ALA 1530S and 153 foot Delta loop.

5960 ASCENSION IS. R. Ndarason Int. (relay) NHK (Issoudun) went off here leaving R. Ndarason Int. already on with vcl song then exotic Afro mx at 0500. Same W anncr as hrd previous day w/opening anmnt mixed in w/ment of Nigeria, Hausa and ending w/ID at 0502:25. When a M anncr came on along with the W, I realized it was 2 diff. audio feeds. W continued w/pres. nx to 0511 (many ments of Nigeria, and Boko Haram) while the other had more exotic mx then M anncr at 0510. The first feed had all tlk segments (w/mx bridges), and the second had all exotic mx (sounding HoA style at 0513 and 0527) with the studio M anncr sev. times. Hrd the M on the second feed ment “International” at least twice, possibly Ndarason IDs, but the pace was too fast to be 100% certain. But presumably 2 diff. R. Ndarason Int. feeds mixing together. Was down to just the second feed only at 0620 recheck. Tnx Mauno Ritola and Dave Kernicks tip passed on by Ron Howard. A Youtube video of the reception can be found using this link: https://youtu.be/SWfNPDmIc74 (Valko 26 Feb.)

6115 CONGO (Brazzaville) R. Congo Nx pgm at 0549 t/in. Wasn’t there at 0540 check, so came on sometime w/in those 4 min. M pgm host in FR w/many many actualities and ments of Rwanda (or was it Luanda) and Congo. Nice ID ending rpt by M at 0554:15. Afro Pop mx bridge at 0602, then canned M and W at 0603, Afro Pop mx w/M voice-over tlk and ment of Congo at 0604. 0605 M anncr. More canned anmnts to pleasant Afro Pop mx after 0608. Tlk during mx at 0614-0615. Fading. Best hrd in many years. Stronger on the Delta Loop but a little noisy. Also getting blasted pulsing static noise from 6080. A Youtube video of the reception can be found using this link: https://youtu.be/4zv8UEbQExc (Valko 26 Feb.)

RX: Perseus SDR with Wellbrook ALA 1530S loop antenna.

4774.87 BRAZIL R. Sora “A Voz do Brasil” nx pgm from 2255. Full canned ID w/freqs by M at 2300. ID as R. Sora de Congonhas. Best signal in a long time but centered right on a CODAR. (Valko 26 Feb.)

6010.02 BRAZIL R. Inconfidencia 2301 singing ID jingle, then live studio M DJ starting w/nice clear ID, then same ID jingle again, and nx highlights w/separater fanfare between each and ment of “America”. Another ID at 2303 and list of network stns. Good signal and clear. (Valko 26 Feb.)

4747.36 PERU R. Huanta 2000 Nice signal at 2342 w/camposina mx. M anncr in SP at 2344 ending w/ID and TC, then back to campo mx. Ad block 2348-2353 w/many ments of Huanta. Canned shouted ID by M during campo song at 2358:30. Live M DJ returned at 0001 followed by another ad block to 0003 t/out. One of the rare times it stayed on throughout the evening. (Valko 26-27 Feb.)

4774.90 PERU R. Tarma Rapid SP tlk by M at 2353 w/ment of R. Santa Rosa. Tuned out briefly and canned anmnt on return at 2356 w/ment of Tarma, live M DJ w/TC and tlk by 2 men over ToH past 0003. Good signal. No CODAR QRM at this time but horrible het and QRM from R. Sora a hair below. (Valko 26-27 Feb.)

6173.95 PERU R. Tawantinsuyo Very surprised to find this audible at 0010 w/Huayno mx. Studio M anncr at 0012-0014. Phone ringing SFX during song at 0015 and 0016. M anncr didn’t take any calls on the air though. 0017 canned W anncr very briefly, no doubt a promo. M anncr returned mixing w/mx 0017-0019. All parallel to their web stream. Had a nice ID at 0017 but it was just a tad too weak to hear it here. No QRM. Nearly gone by 0030. One of the best Andean openings this Winter season here. (Valko 27 Feb.)

5952.46 BOLIVIA R. Pio Doce 0208 really nice signal w/nonstop rustic CP camposina mx. 0220 finally short canned ID anmnt by W, and more anmnts. 0225 men shouting “Pio Doce” twice, then alternating M and W anncrs over instru. mx w/ID. 0227 usual “Colonel Bogey march and long full canned ID anmnt by M w/QTH “Siglo XX, Municipio de Llallagua, Departmento de Potosi, Bolivia”, AM SW and FM freqs, website, and phone. Ended w/harp signature 3 times at 0229 and plug pulled at 0230:02. Had slight QRM from weak signal on 5950, but passband removed it. (Valko 27 Feb.)

4875.26 BRAZIL R. Difusora Roraima Tremendous signal w/long song 0256-0302, canned PT anmnt by W, tlk by M over mx, 0305 nice full canned PT ID by M w/freqs and QTH. Amazing strength but really poor the following morning. (Valko 27 Feb.)

4885.03 BRAZIL R. Clube do Para 0301 M anncr in PT w/ment of R. Clube, couple canned anmnts, and full canned ID anmnt w/freqs, and QTH by M at 0306. Strong but not quite as good as Roraima next door. (Valko 27 Feb.)

6925.05 PIRATE (NA) Yeah Man R. 2125 end of Jazz song, then M anncr w/ID and tlk abt HF Underground and greeted listeners by their site IDs. 2127 back to Jazz. 2130 another anmnt including IDs and into “track 2” w/sev. false starts. Still going to at least 2145. Fair signal w/slightly distorted audio and some heavy QSB. A Youtube video of this reception can be watched using this link: https://youtu.be/baBLZ3ombjc (Valko 21 Feb.)

9635 MALI R. Mali (pres.) Found very strong carrier here at 2148. Extremely weak modulation w/live lcl Afro. mx (mainly percussion and vcls) from 2152. Went right over 2200 ToH, although there was a M tlking presumably from the remote QTH. Absolutely nothing on 5995. Came back at 0000 and the signal left the air at 0004:36. So no doubt Mali, but I’ll still call it pres. as no official ID was hrd. (not hrd on this freq again over the next 3 days) A Youtube video of this reception (including nice IDs by 9650 R. Guinee) can be watched using this link: https://youtu.be/mpplkbrZFvE (Valko 21 Feb.)

1710.01 UNID. (PIRATE??) Hrd this one again from 2225 w/songs by Abba, Steelers Wheel, Michael Jackson, Bill Withers, Tom Jones, B.J. Thomas, and Brotherhood of Man. Hrd “Save Your Kisses For Me” by Brotherhood of Man right to the end at 2317. After that it seemed like deadair/OC. The signal was certainly strong enough for audio at times, but didn’t hear any. The signal went off at 2329:50. The Hudson Co. TIS was stronger and more dominant than usual tonight. (Valko 22 Feb.)

6954.98 PIRATE (NA) UNID. Still going from the evening before with the marathon broadcast at 0732 UTC with “Feel Like Makin’ Love” by Bad Company. Later, 0843 “Jesus is Just Alright” by The Doobie Brothers, 0846 “Roy Rogers” by Elton John, and 0851″Against the Wind” by Bob Seger Fair on peaks but generally poor here in SW PA. (Valko 24 Feb.)

2959.996 USA WABF, Mobile, AL Found on this 2 X 1480 harmonic at 0751. 0753 canned ID/promo by M, then song by what sounded like Aretha Franklin. 0759 another apparent ID/promo. A little more mx, then ID by W and more mx. Came back at 0835 and hrd “Muskrat Love” by Captain and Tennille, then nice ID w/website at 0837:35. 0859 Carpenters, then ToH ID w/freq by W at 0859:45. Poor and very fady but readable on peaks. (Valko 24 Feb.)

5952.45 BOLIVIA R. Pio Doce Back on and found at 2317 w/rustic Andean CP mx, but mostly animated SP/Quechua tlk by M anncr. Some shouting. “Muy buenos noches”. TC. Fairly good but absolutely horrible slop QRM from 5950 WRMI. In fact when there was mx on 5950, I couldn’t hear Pio Doce at all. Finally tuned out at 0000. (Valko 24 Feb.)

6150 PIRATE (NA) Channel Z Andy Walker doing a show. 0226 t/in. Songs by Episode 6 and The Squires. Song anmnts, ID, jingle ID. Andy giving greetings to Andy Yoder, Chris Lobdell, John Fisher, Ragnar, Harry Smith, Mike Rohde, George Zeller, Bill Finn, Kracker, and others. Good signal w/very quick fades. Signal was cutting out at times and finally went off in mid-pgm at 0233 (op said in an e-mail response because of poor conditions). A Youtube video of this reception can be watched using this link: https://youtu.be/hOBjKaud93w (Valko 25 Feb.)

3325 PAPUA NEW GUINEA NBC Bougainville 1113 press rpt by M w/ments of government and many ments of Bougainville. Went to at least 1138. Returned at 1148 and hrd end of anmnt by M, and into lively island mx. Recheck at 1207 and found w/NBC nx by M then signal suddenly gone at exactly 1207:54. Fair during peak. (Valko 22 Feb.)

For more details…you may order…registered ?? directorate…worldwide, all new positions…information…”, followed by another ad ending w/jingle. 1141 next song didn’t recog. (kind of sounded like INXS). 1146 1148 novelty song. 1148-1151 “After Midnight” by Eric Clapton. 1151-1154 sounded like Tom Jones “Love me Tonight”. 1157 sounded like Englebert Humperdinct. 1159:45 short ad by M followed by “…4-K-Z“ ID by M. 1200-1204 nx by W w/sev. actualities.
