DX Fanzine No. 64 – December 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.

Global Radio Guide (Winter 2018-2019) Now Available at Amazon

Older ham radio operators and radio listeners might remember a time when shortwave radio stations broadcast a nearly constant drumbeat of political propaganda during the Cold War years. Shortwave radio stations such as Radio Moscow, the Voice of America, and the BBC, to name a few, played an important ideological role during that confrontation between the East and West.

Once again, Global Radio broadcasters have moved to the front lines as the world’s major superpowers enter a new Cold War. As tensions heat up in the world’s hotspots such as eastern Europe, the Ukraine and Baltic States, the Middle East, and East Asia, you can follow international events on the radio, but you need an accurate and comprehensive radio guide to hear it.

Teak Publishing is pleased to announce the release of that important radio reference – the Global Radio Guide (GRG), 11th edition (Winter 2018-2019) ‘electronic’ book, by Amazon bestselling author Gayle Van Horn W4GVH. The book was formerly known as the International Shortwave Broadcast Guide.

If you want to get in on the action, then this Amazon ‘electronic’ book is your ticket to travel the Global Radio bands. The heart of this publication is a 24-hour station/frequency guide with Winter 2018-2019 schedules for selected medium wave and all known longwave/shortwave radio stations.

This unique resource is the only radio publication that has by-hour schedules that includes all language services, frequencies and world target areas for over 500 broadcast stations. It has a listing of DX radio programs and Internet websites addresses for many of the stations listed in the book. There are also listings for standard time and frequency stations, and even a few intriguing spy numbers station listings.

New in the 11th edition of the GRG is a feature, The Battle of the Airwaves in Cuba by Gayle (W4GVH) and Larry (N5FPW) Van Horn. This comprehensive feature covers the historic as well as an ongoing war over the airwaves between the U.S. and Cuba. Included are listings of AM/FM/Shortwave broadcast stations in Cuba, US stations beaming to Cuba and an extensive listing of Cuban Internet broadcast audio feeds.

Other authors with feature articles in this edition include The Spectrum Monitor’s Fred Waterer, from St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, with a feature on winter radio programming and shortwave broadcast authority Hans Johnson with an update on DRM broadcasting worldwide.

There is a fascinating feature by former VOA audience research analyst and producer of the Shortwave Radiogram, Dr. Kim Andrew Elliott, PhD. KD9XB, on how to monitor shortwave radiogram broadcasts. Veteran journalist (editor and writer for Popular Communications, WorldRadio Online, and CQ Amateur Radio magazines) Richard Fisher KI6SN, has penned a fascinating feature on hearing the World of Shortwave and Mediumwave Broadcast stations using Amazon Echo Dot devices.

Spectrum Monitor e-zine columnist and feature writer Larry Van Horn has a feature on Who’s Who in the Shortwave Radio Spectrum that will assist the reader in monitoring Global Radio activity outside the broadcast radio spectrum. This article also includes an updated Teak Publishing HF 1000+ non-broadcast frequency list.

The 11th edition of the Global Radio Guide e-Book (electronic book only, no print edition available) is available worldwide from Amazon and their various international websites at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L3RYTPG.

ANNOUNCEMENT: CLOSURE OF IBC – ITALIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION

It is with sadness that we must announce that due to financial situation and organizational reasons as well as the poor reception in Italy, IBC –Italian Broadcasting Corporation ceased operations in its current form as of 31 December 2018. Here is the official announcement in Italian and English (Ed: Antonello Napolitano).

Con grande dispiacere annunciamo la chiusura delle nostre trasmissioni in onde corte a partire da oggi, 31 dicembre 2018. I motivi sono molteplici: da quello economico, a quello organizzativo e non ultimo anche il fatto che già da qualche settimana non riusciamo ad avere un segnale che permetta la copertura con sufficiente comprensibilità delle nostre trasmissioni in Italia. Contiamo comunque di tornare al più presto in vostra compagnia. A tutti un augurio di un felice 2019!

With great regret we announce the closure of our shortwave transmissions starting today, 31 December 2018. The reasons are economic, organizational and not least also the bad coverage of our signal in Italy lately. However, we plan to return with you as soon as possible. To all HNY! IBC
