DX Fanzine No. 56 – April 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.

11735 ZANZIBAR ZBC 1809 EG ID by W at end of nx as “This is the English news from Zanzibar Broadcasting Corporation. Thank you for listening”. Best signal during the EG nx in quite a while. (Valko 18 April)

6100 PIRATE (NA) “The Relay Station” Tnx John Herkimer tip, noted at 2205 w/end of anmnt w/ment of website welcomeradio.com, Dance mx w/DJ “Annie” giving pgm credits, name and “The General Store”, Blues mx, ID by little girl for WXNZ, Skowhegan, ME, cont. Blues song, then “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell. Very good signal. Here’s a link to a Youtube video of the reception: https://youtu.be/JTRfsX5LugM (Valko 18 April)

12255 PIRATE (EUROPE) Reflections Europe Surprised to find a visible signal abt 1808. Started getting a M tlking at 1817. Then womens choir mx plainly audible at 1825. Then M tlking again at 1838, 1839, 1848, 1855, 1900, and at 1902 suddenly shouted “Eternal!!”. Hrd M and W tlking 1904-1907 w/ments of Canada, New Zealand, Australia. 1907 gave US addr. Diff. pgm at 1911 w/M preaching and mentioning “…Jesus name we pray, amen”, and “…in the Bible…all their children…” at 1912. Gave scripture chapter and verse at 1914. Still same M preaching at 1920 and giving at least 3 “Hallelujah”s at 1925. Later, hrd womens choral group at 2105. 2115 contact info, and what sounded like Reflections Europe ID at 2117. Still a little audible when it suddenly went off at 2127:16. Really heavy QSB, sometimes fading out for long periods. But also audible on short peaks. Best hrd 1902-1907. (Valko 1 April)

5995 CLANDESTINE (SOUTH KOREA) Echo of Hope 1045 canned anmnt by W w/mx bed, then usual male chorus and W w/”V-O-H” ID at 1047. Audible over the jamming. All the Korean Clandestines in and around 49m doing better than usual at this time. (Valko 2 April)

6930L PIRATE (NA) KOOT 2311 final ID and said was DJ Koot. (Valko 2 April)

6374.63 PIRATE (EUROPE) R. Harmony Found this new Pirate while cruising down to 49m at 2319. A variety of MOR songs inlcuding an occasional Top 40. 2326 short anmnt by M. Recognized “Close to You” by The Carpenters at 2341. Sounded like a M anncr between songs at 2343. Indeed, found ID using a web rx in Austria mentioning “…beautiful music on Harmony”. Couldn’t find a European web rx that had a decent signal, only weak carriers. Finally got a good signal on the one in Austria. Was able to recognize “Dream a Little Dream of Me” by The Mamas and the Papas at 2351 here. Another M anncr at 2354. Back at 0029 to hear “I’m Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover”. Much better at this time. 0037 canned M between songs again. These short ID anmnts came abt after every 3rd song. Best one was at 0048, but still not readable. Voice audio too muffled. (Valko 2-3 April)

6319.86 PIRATE (EUROPE) Focus Int. NF here. Rock mx at 2320. 2325 M anncr w/UK accent. Finally up briefly at 2337. M anncr again at 2338. Too much rapid QSB, almost pulsing. Canned anmnt by M at 0030 w/ment of “free radio” sounding like an “Off-Shore Echoes” ad. Novelty-sounding song. 0034 live M DJ again. Just a bit too weak, way too much QSB, QRN, and also QRM from a huge UTE on 6319. IDed using an Austrian web rx. (Valko 2-3 April)

6210.01 PIRATE (EUROPE) Laser Hot Hits Pop mx at 0033, 0034 ID jingle by W, then nx headlines by M, ID, and back to mx. Fairly readable but not the best. (Valko 3 April)

6070 GERMANY Channel 292 Surprised to find this plainly audible at 0549 w/”Band of Gold” by Freda Payne. 0552:30 canned ID and relay info w/ment of 6070 by alternating M and W in EG, then R. Caroline promo/ID starting w/”Here Comes the Sun”, and back to mx at 0554. 0603-0605 “Walk Like a Man” by Four Seasons, then 0605-0609 “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas. 0609 novelty Reggae-like song. Fady. QRM from a very low level het from CRFB, and some adjacent slop. Noisy too. (Valko 3 April)

5905 GERMANY Deutscher Wetterdienst Signal on at 0558:06, and pgmming start at 0600 w/usual robo-W anncr giving wx conditions. Some decent peaks and better than hrd the first time. And quite good when it went off at 0630:10. Some slop QRM from 5910.37 Alcaravan. 6180 blocked by VOA Sao Tome. (Valko 3 April)

6284.98 PIRATE (EUROPE) Coast FM Canned ID ending w/ment of 2018 by M, then ads at 0625, and ending w/simple ID by W and back to Pop mx. (Valko 3 April)

2940.13 UNID. Best hrd yet w/rapid-fire SP tlk by M from 0902. Had breaks for soft instru. mx abt every 10 min. at 0910, 0918, 0929. Thought hrd ments of “Gloria”, “universal”, “tarde”, and “manana”. Some decent short peaks at 0927, 0929, 0935, and 0937. Pgm ended at 0946. Came back later and hrd diff. M anncr/pgm at 0955. 0958 soft mx bridge. 0959:35 sounded like a signature and M anncr. 1000 mx and next pgm w/poss. intro by M. Check at 1038 found audible w/M in SP. Definitely appears to be a rel. stn, and am betting it’s somewhere out of the country. (Valko 4 April)

Is HJNT R. Huellas, Cali, Colombia, see below.

5917.40 CLANDESTINE (SOUTH KOREA) V.O. Freedom Audible w/M and W alternating in KR at 1044. Still on it’s very slow drift downward. (Valko 4 April)

11855.79 BRAZIL R. Aparecida Excellent signal w/”Voz do Brasil” pgm at 2256 // to massive 11780.01 Nac. Amazonia but it went off at 2359:50. 2300 full canned ID by M. (Have been noticing what I believe is Aparecida signing on daily at 1000 on 5035, but can’t get any useable audio.) (Valko 4 April)

5915 ZAMBIA ZNBC/R. One Found completely in the clear at 0247 w/Fish Eagle IS. Into choral NA at 0250. M w/opening anmnt at 0252. Sounded like some canned anmnts, then into lively Afro Pops at 0256 and studio M anncr came in at 0257 to ToH. Not a great signal and fady but always nice to hear in the clear. Best on the Delta Loop. (Valko 5 April)

7295 RUSSIA R. Sakha Ad/promo block at 1050 including one at 1052 using the old R. Moscow IS!! Into several Pop songs. 4 time ticks at 1100 w/first and last being a double tick, then anmnt by M anncr including nice ID, and into nx by diff. M. Good signal and a rare day w/very little Ham QRM and none at ToH. But did have some CNR1 7300 slop QRM. (Valko 5 April)

2940.13 COLOMBIA HJNT R. Huellas, Cali Barely had M preacher once after 0900. Brett Saylor mentioned someone hrd R. Huellas on 1470.07 and had a Youtube video, and suggested trying the R. Huellas webstream. Did so using the rx at TWR Bonaire, and found the exact same rapid-paced preacher I hrd 2 days ago 0902-0946. Also got the // 2940.13 harmonic very weakly. Amazing that this is only 1 kw and the 2nd harmonic can be hrd here. Would never have solved this mystery if not for Brett and the fact Huellas is off-freq. (Valko 6 April)

6300 PIRATE UNID. Found a good signal here at 2326 w/what sounded like a DT version of “Blowin in the Wind”. More nonstop apparent DT ballads and MOR songs. One or 2 more uptempo songs. Even one schlager. Not one anmnt. Song ended at 2346, then the signal left the air at 2347:14. Bet this was the same stn airing the satellite Netherlands program Sky Radio back on 24 March. (Valko 6 April)

6374.76 PIRATE (EUROPE) R. Harmony Old-time ballad at 2334 t/in. 2335 “These Boots Were Made for Walkin” by Nancy Sinatra. 2337 short prob. ID but someone whistling on the freq. Little better signal at 2340 and nice peak at 2341 w/Doris Day-like ballad. 2343-2345 “Gentle on My Mind” by Johnny Hartford. 2345-2347 “Que Sera Sera” by Doris Day. 2347 brief ID anmnt by M between songs. 2350-2354 lively Swing song w/fast beat. 2357-0000 sounded like The Platters. 0000 another ID anmnt by M. Fair on peaks but noisy conditions and a lot of lcl static bursts. (Valko 8 April)

6025 TIBET (CHINA) Xizang PBS Long Tibetan tlk by M over instru. mx 2345-2355, then exotic lcl choral singing. Very nice signal and abt the strongest ever hrd here, //6130 which was just slightly weaker. (Valko 9 April)

13710 GERMANY Missionswerk Friedensstimme (via Nauen) Mostly M tlking after 1218 t/in. Did hear a W once or twice. Soft rel.-like mx at 1229 s/off, then signal gone at 1230:06. Very weak and only audible (but not readable) on peaks. No sign of co-channel Turkey that was hrd on European web rxs. (Valko 14 April)

15360 CLANDESTINE V.O. Amara R. (via Issoudun) Signal on abt 10 sec. before 1700 s/on w/usual routine; ID by M, bell tolling and HoA mx, then full ID by M in apparent Amharic. Diff. bells at 1701 and W anncr. Feature w/M rpter at 1704. Fair and very fady. No jamming to at least 1706. (Valko 14 April)

6304.82 PIRATE (EUROPE) Cupid R. Rock song at 2305. 2311 “Crazy” by Aerosmith. Live long ID anmnt at 2316, into next Pop song at 2317. Abruptly off at 2320:22. Noticed another signal on 6305.07 while Cupid was on and found out it was R. Merlin using Iceland web rx after Cupid went off. Much too weak for audio here though. (Valko 14 April)

6905 PIRATE (NA) Seven Trees R. On at 0016. SSTV ID in not often used SC120 at 0101. Good signal. (Valko 15 April)

Good signal. (Valko 15 April)

6950U PIRATE (NA) Wolverine R. ID 0051 and 0104 ID. SSTV ID of Giraffes at closing 0120. Good. (Valko 15 April)

6935.63 PIRATE (NA) UNID Stn on for the Titanic anniversary at 0005 w/instru. mx, CW Mayday, and voice audio recreation all mixed together in various combinations. Went off and on a few times, and gone for good at 0016. Good signal. (Valko 15 April)

7260 MONGOLIA Mongolian Radio 3 (pres.) Noticed apparently slightly stronger Xinjiang on 7259.992 going off as scheduled at 1205:12 leaving this on 7260. Hrd a little bit of the mx on very brief peak at 1206 (mx and W in Mongolian alternating using South Korean web rx). Would have guessed Mongolia would be the one off-freq. (Valko 15 April)

5025.03 PERU R. Quillabamba Noticed Rebelde’s audio was way down at 1001. Just OC from Quillabamba to at least 1005 when I tuned away. Came back at 1021 and found Quillabamba audio up w/apparent bdcst from children’s classroom w/singing, a lot of tlking, and ending w/all children individually saying hello to “mama” & “papa”. No adult anncrs at all. 1029 pgm end and many nice canned promo IDs, one lifting the laser shooting SFX from the beginning of “Jungle Love” by The Steve Miller Band. Intro for next pgm at 1031, but Rebelde’s audio coming up stronger by then. Glad to see Quillabamba still there. (Valko 16 April)

7260 MONGOLIA Mongolian Radio 3 (pres.) Again here w/Xinjiang on 7259.99. Pretty certain I could hear the M and W tlking in Mongolian at 1052 mixing w/mx on Xinjiang, which was also hrd on a Korean web rx. Although both signals were equally strong, the Xinjiang audio was on top. (Valko 16 April)
