DX Fanzine No. 55 – March 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.

Taranto is a very long way from us so you have fairly good reception of us considering the distance. We are happy that you managed to hear us. Due to very bad utility on 6220 KHz we are now using 6205. As for development, well we have been on air since 1990 and on shortwave since 1993. We do have future plans to add some more relays on other bands and frequencies, but the main thing we are concentrating on is to keep on air daily on 6205. And keep online with our 4 streams, Laser Classic Hits, Laser Dance, and Laser Listen Again, Laser Soul Hits, which are all on the tune in app and on our website. Hope you can listen again soon”.

POLAND
Polskie Radio, 225 kHz: F/D QSL Card 10 days after F/UP. Total time: 33 months! V/S: Barbara Kiepas-Jelenska, manager w Dziale Serwisu Technicznego w firmie Polskie Radio S.A. A few weeks ago I found on the “QSL Chasers” Facebook Group that Claudio Tagliabue, a DXer from Italy, got a nice F/D QSL from Polskie Radio by sending his report by snail mail to: Polskie Radio S.A., Bjuro Technologii i Cyfryzacji, Al Niepodleglosci 77/85, 00 977 Warszawa, Poland. This was the first time I heard about the existence of “Bjuro Technologii i Cyfryzacji” (Technology and Digitization Department) so I started some research on the Internet with the aim of finding an E-mail address. My research was unsuccessful but I found the name of the head of “Bjuro Technologii i Cyfryzacji”: Mrs. Barbara Kiepas-Jelenska (She was given a promotion on 16th March 2018 see: http://www.wirtualnemedia.pl/artykul/jozef-wacnik-dyrektorem-technicznym-polskiego-radia-barbara-kiepas-jelenska-naczelnym-inzynierem ). The second step was to get in contact with her via Facebook and Linkedin, an online social network for business professionals. After a few days, she accepted my invitation to connect with me on Linkedin and I sent her my F/Up via this social network. Parallel to this, I tried to find her E-mail address by assembling many different combinations of her first name and surname with the most popular free Web-based e-mail domains like Gmail or Hotmail. To find, whether or not, my combination was right I used an online Email Checker which is a free tool for verifying an email address. Just enter the email address and hit check button. Then it tells you whether the email address is real or not. After dozens of attempts, I found one working. Honestly, I do not know if the e-mail address I found really belongs to the head of “Bjuro Technologii i Cyfryzacji” or some of her namesakes in Poland. All I can say is that after 8 days, surprise (!), I found a QSL inside my letterbox. Sorry but this time E-mail address is omitted as it is being used for private affairs.

A book in French that partly reveals an unknown history of radio in Guinea.

by Christian Ghibaudo (translation from Italian into English by Antonello Napolitano)

Christian Ghibaudo from Nice in France, recently accepted my suggestion to buy a book in French about radio in Guinea (West Africa): De la “Radio banane” à La Voix de la révolution”: L’expérience radiophonique en Guinée. (From “Radio Banana” to “The Voice of Revolution”: the experience of radio in Guinea). He commented that the book was very interesting with a description of the political action od President Sékou-Touré. Christian shared with us some contents of the book which focus on the role of the radio in Guinea.

Radio came to Guinea in the 50s. In 1947 Guinea was the major producer and exporter of bananas among the colonies of French West Africa. It all started when the producers of banana and citrus fruits, who were far from the capital Conakry, announced their interest to have a source of information about their activity. The main objective of this radio was to disseminate the latest news about the export of bananas to France and for this reason, Radio Conakry was nicknamed “Radio Banane” …

The first transmitter was installed in Conakry and its power was 300 watts. In 1954 a new transmitter arrived from France and the station started broadcasting on 1295 kHz with 1 kW. The music played consisted of contemporary French songs. Since 1956, all the French colonies obtained political autonomy and Radio Banane was being put at the service of the Guinean authorities. On 2 October 1958, Guinea proclaimed its independence.

January 1, 1959 marks the end of Radio Banane and the birth of Radio Guinea with the technical assistance of advisors from East Germany. (German Democratic Republic). With this change French songs disappeared from the air! Later, a new 100 kW transmitter was installed in Boullinet, this time with the help of West Germany (Federal Republic Germany) …

In 1964 Guinea’s President Sékou-Touré quickly aligned himself with the Soviet Union (USSR) and Radio Guinea became “The voice of revolution” with many shortwave frequencies (7125, 4910, 15310, 6155 e 9650 kHz). Its aim was to export the revolution in the neighbouring countries and fight the “White regimes” of Angola, Namibia, Rhodesia and South Africa …

The political climate changed after the death of President Sékou-Touré in 1984. Guinea abandoned the revolutionary program winning the confidence of the international community. In recent years, a new Broadcasting House for the RTG (Radio Television Guinéenne) was built and transmitters were revamped with the support of China.
