DX Fanzine – February 2020

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.

SOLOMAN ISLANDS

SIBC, 5020 kHz: N/D E-mail statement after 5 years and many. Here the full story F/ups. “Received with thanks. SIBC”. With only those three words after several follow-ups, the Solomon Island Broadcasting Corporation “verified” my reception report dated back as 13th November 2015. Ironically the e-mail address of Patrick Tibaua, ptibaua-at-sibc.com.sb , Chief engineer, who sent in the past a number of QSLs, bounced. Not the same for the company e-mail address sibcnews-at-solomon.com.sb from which the short reply came one day after my last follow up sent on 9th February 2020. Of course, that is not a QSL but as a fellow Italian DXer, Roberto Pavanello, says it’s better than nothing. To be honest, QSLs today can’t be seen as proof that you really heard a DX station. We know that reception reports quite often in recent years were acknowledged with a QSL without really verifying that details coincide with the station logbook. For this reason QSL cards today must be seen as a souvenir from a station broadcasting from a remote place rather than the irrefutable proof that you really listened to a radio station.

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

MONITORING OBSERVATIONS:
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 during November 2019
1912 = monitored during December 2019
2001 = monitored during January 2020
2002 = monitored since February 1st 2020 …etc

SHORT STATISTIC (“A” Version) as of February 23rd 2020:
monitored during year 2015: 5670 data entries monitored during year 2016: 7861data entries monitored during year 2017: 6749 data entries monitored during year 2018: 11318 data entries monitored during year 2019: 13883 data entries monitored during year 2020: 9673 data entries (January/February 2020)

During the month approx. 3 – 4 or more update releases available, which means approx 40 updates during the year available.
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. During the month approx. 3 – 4 or more update releases available, which means approx 40 updates during the year available.

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.

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.

Coronavirus spreading within Italy: despite Internet radio has still much ro say in times of crisis

Codogno, is a small village in Lombardy with a population of 15,000, only 60 Kms South East from Milan, which until a few weeks ago was literally unknown to most of Italians. But after the outbreak of Coronavirus in Italy, as it was declared one of the worst affected area by Covid19, Codogno has become as famous as Rome, Venice or Milano.

After the spread of virus in our country 10 towns, including Codogno, were locked down and police are manning checkpoints around this area. In this context, with closed supermarkets, banks, restaurants and shops, surprisingly Radio Codogno, a small community radio owned by the Church, has emerged as one of the most important source of information for people living in quarantine. Here is a report from the Italian newspaper “il Giorno” which tells how this radio station, which airs a special programme called “Radio Zona Rossa” (Radio Red Zone), has become important for the local community.

For the sake of good order it should be mentioned that the report was adapted, shortened and translated into English by Antonello Napolitano, the editor of DX Fanzine.

Codogno (Lodi), 27 February 2020 – A voice from the airwaves yesterday at 11.00 hrs entered the homes of those forced into quarantine. “Buongiorno codognesi” (Good morning citizens of Codogno), says the host of “Radio Zona Rossa” (Radio Red Zone) a special broadcast carried over the frequencies of Radio Codogno (100.350 MHz), the historic religious radio station founded in 1983 which, in these days, after the outbreak of COVID19, has become two times a day a reference point especially for those who are forced to stay at home.

To provide updated news, official bulletins from authorithies and useful information is the main mission of the new program. In an era of social networking, live streaming and whatsapp messages, the radio is still a very effective bastion of one-to many information.
A piece of “analog” world that still has much to say, to encourage those who are afraid, to unite those who feel isolated. Headphones over the head, it was the famous radio speaker Pino Pagani who gave the green light to the show that was repeated yesterday at 17.00 hours. The program will continue until the emergency stops. Mainly it will provide the phone numbers of the Civil Protection that can be called, the eventual opening of supermarkets with timetables and all the official information from the local municipality. Yesterday, during the first broadcast in the morning, contacts had already skyrocketed with numbers not usual for Radio Codogno.

“It’s a clear signal that the citizens need reliable news, but also a simple contact, a friendly voice”, says the sound operator Francesco Dadda. A few minutes after 11.00 hrs, a call from an elderly, faithful listener arrives. She was worried and asked what to do to contact the service numbers that didn’t answer her calls. “It is an important voice as a point of reference for the territory and therefore we are happy to be able to carry out this task and expand the range of sharing for news that, at this stage,almost everyone needs,” said Massimo Scaglioni, the radio’s spokesman.

However, it is not excluded that “Radio Zona Rossa” can also be broadcast at other times of the day, at least three times a day. “We would need people, however, volunteers who are familiar with the radio work who could perhaps make themselves available,” explain the organizers. Because even in quarantine the need for volunteers does not diminish.
