DX Fanzine No. 76 – December 2019

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 2019-2020) Now Available at Amazon

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

Teak Publishing is pleased to announce the release that all-important radio guide – the Global Radio Guide (GRG), 13th edition (Winter 2019-2020) e-book, by Amazon bestselling author Gayle Van Horn W4GVH. The book was formerly known as the International Shortwave Broadcast Guide.

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 all the latest Winter 2019-2020 schedules for selected AM band, longwave, and shortwave radio stations.

This unique resource is the only radio publication that lists by-hour schedules that include all language services, frequencies, and world target areas for over 500 stations. There are listings of DX radio programs and Internet websites addresses for many of the stations in the book. There are also entries for time and frequency stations and even a few other intriguing shortwave radio stations.

New in this 13th edition of the GRG is an introductory article: The Software Defined Radio – Bringing the World to Your Doorstep. It includes our first-ever SDR buyers guide. Gayle and Larry Van Horn have also joined forces again penning an in-depth equipment review on the new Airspy HF+Discovery SDR.

Other authors in this edition include Richard Fisher with a feature on WBCQ – The Most Powerful Shortwave Voice in North America, and The Spectrum Monitor’s Fred Waterer, with a feature on winter/holiday radio programming. The 2019-2020 winter propagation forecast is presented by international radio propagation expert, Tomas Hood NW7US. In addition to his propagation forecast, Tomas will also preview his thoughts on the new solar cycle 25.

There are also articles on Traveling the World via Shortwave Radio Broadcasts, Monitoring the Shortwave Action Bands, our exclusive Hot 1000+ shortwave frequency list, and new radio product announcements.

The 133h edition of the Global Radio Guide eBook (electronic book only, no print edition available) is available worldwide from Amazon and their various international websites at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B082DNSN4P.

The price for this latest edition is US$8.99.

If you have a shortwave radio receiver or Internet connection, and this unique radio resource, you will know when and where to listen to your favorite radio broadcast station.

This publication will have wide appeal to amateur radio operators, shortwave radio hobbyists, news agencies, news buffs, educators, foreign language students, expatriates, or anyone interested in listening to a global view of world news and major events as they happen.

The new edition of ILG Radio for the new Winter 2019/20 brodcasting season (B19) now available

The new edition of ILGRadio effective for the new Winter 2019/20 broadcasting season (B19), the first part of this season, as of December 28th 2019 is now available. Data effective until December 22nd deleted. This great ILGRadio “A” version database includes now 74589 data sets.

From now on the ILG contains again full bandscan records and nearly all broadcasting entries checked and when on air the monitoring date is given.

In the YEAR field you may find the following (YY MM) e.g.:
1909 = monitored during September 2019
1910 = monitored during October 2019
1911 = monitored since November 1st 2019
1912 = monitored since December 1st 2019 …etc

Further ILGRadio updates will follow a.s.p.

Daily monitoring for many hours is going on and nearly all broadcasting data entries were checked along with the UTILITY (non broadcasting) transmissions.
In most cases PERSEUS SDR receivers will be used for bandscans because the sensitivity and reception is much better than the KiwiSDR remote receivers.
If time is available here various locations will be checked by TDoA function of the KiwiSDR receivers if channels higher and lower of the checked frequencies are full clear and free. This function is not available with PERSEUS receivers.

If information about changes are available an update will follow a.s.p. on a weekly basis.

PLANNINGS FOR 2020:
– more bandscans around the clock
– if necessary more ILGRadio update releases
– general data check of transmitter site data (longitude/latitude)

SOFTWARE FOR RECEIVERS:
there are various files to receiver control available upon request I do not own or use such receivers/software (except PERSEUS SDR) If you need any version please sent detailed structure of requested file

RATES FOR ILGRADIO:
again in 2020 no changes for the low rate for one year but remember: If I get 17 Euro there are 10 Euro left for me equated to 2x of beer in the next pub. 7 Euro will be used for PayPal / Bank rates, office costs and the main part is used for the internet server. The used server is stand alone server and no other users may reduce the traffic speed. This guarantees a rather quick download of ILGRadio files.

There are a lot of software available to read the ILGRadio data. Here on this page are selected database readers: https://www.ilgradio.com/software/ With most of these software you can set index or filter functions and they are available for free or for a small amount.

LINK to the web pages: http://www.ilgradio.com/

These ILGRadio Databases are provided to promote and advance the hobby of Short
Wave Radio Listening and Monitoring with accurate details of stations broadcasting
between 2 to 30 MHz. ILGRadio is available for a very small amount of money as a
recognition for all the work for investigation and trouble. That’s why there is the wish that your access data were NOT given to other persons, who paid for nothing. Please accept this. If you would use ILGRadio for your professional job, please pay the higher price or more.

RADIO FREE ASIA RELEASES YEAR OF THE RAT QSL JANUARY 2020

Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces its Chinese Lunar Year QSL. The Year of the Rat begins January 25, 2020 and ends February 11, 2021. The rat is one of twelve animals used in the Chinese zodiac. Those born in a rat year are considered ambitious, meticulous, industrious and sociable. They are also are very focused, naturals at following their instincts, and they are highly attentive which supposedly makes them excellent in business. This is RFA’s 72nd QSL and is used to confirm all valid RFA reception reports January – April 2020. Created by Congress in 1994 and incorporated in 1996, RFA broadcasts in Burmese, Cantonese, Khmer, Korean to North Korea, Lao, Mandarin Chinese, Vietnamese, Tibetan (including Uke, Amdo, and Kham dialects), and Uyghur. RFA strives for accuracy, balance, and fairness in our editorial content. As a ‘surrogate’ broadcaster, RFA provides news and commentary specific to each of our target countries, acting as the free press these countries lack. RFA broadcasts only in local languages and dialects, and most of our broadcasts comprise news of specific local interest. More information about RFA, including our current broadcast frequency schedule, is always available at http://www.rfa.org.

RFA encourages listeners to submit reception reports. Reception reports are valuable to RFA as they help us evaluate the signal strength and quality of our transmissions. RFA confirms all accurate reception reports by mailing a QSL card to the listener. RFA welcomes all reception report submissions at http://techweb.rfa.org (follow the QSL REPORTS link) not only from DXers, but also from our general listening audience.

Reception reports are also accepted by email at qsl@rfa.org and by mail to:
Reception Reports, Radio Free Asia, 2025 M. Street NW, Suite 300, Washington DC 20036, United States of America.
