North Korean Shortwave Getting Stronger

The North Korean authorities are in the process of replacing their existing shortwave radio transmitters, Daily NK has learned. The measure appears designed to both allow better broadcasts targeting South Korea and stop outside shortwave broadcasts entering.

According to the Northeast Asian Broadcasting Institute (NABI), the authorities made their first move in March this year, replacing the shortwave transmission equipment at Kanggye Transmission Station in Jagang Province with modern equipment made by Beijing BBEF Electronics Group Co. Kanggye Transmission Station is one of three high output shortwave transmission facilities in North Korea, with the other two being at Pyongyang and in Gujang County, North Pyongan Province.

Last broadcast for Bonaire scheduled for Saturday

Radio Netherlands Worldwide and NHK Radio Japan leave Bonaire

Radio Netherlands World's last shortwave program via Bonaire was this morning from 0930 UTC on 6020 in Dutch. The station also closed the Spanish news program "La Matinal," which lasted for 23 years.

The Radio Netherlands shortwave broadcast in Spanish will be using World Harvest Radio (WHRI) transmitter in Cypress Creek, South Carolina.
The new program called "El Toque" ("The Touch") will be featured from October 29 on 9895 kHz, Monday to Friday from 0000-0030 UTC. Hopefully they were received by the listeners in Venezuela and the Caribbean, as emissions were practically inaudible in the morning, except Cuba, as indicated by a Venezuelan DXer.

The last broadcast for NHK/Radio Japan will be Saturday Ocobert 27, in Spanish, from 0400 to 0430 UTC, on 6195 and 6080 kHz from 0930 to 1000 UTC.

BBC announces drastic cuts

Short wave broadcasts of World Service Arabic will end by next April, while the Cyprus short wave relay station will close.World Service English short wave transmissions will be reduced to six hours a day, with 1.5m listeners likely to be lost as a result. Currently, there are between seven and 19 hours of short wave depending on region.
The distribution changes - which include cuts to medium wave transmissions - are designed to save £4.8m in 2013/14. It's a large chunk of the £12m savings the World Service is targetting in its third phase of cuts as a result of a 16% reduction to its grant-in-aid.
An estimated 3% of the Arabic audience is likely to be lost when the eight hours a day of Arabic short wave in the Middle East is halted. A short wave service will continue in troubled Sudan where there's a 'strong need' for humanitarian information and access to other platforms is limited.
Many Middle East viewers will be able to receive Arabic tv direct from satellite.

Medium wave

Another 1% of the audience will go when Middle East medium wave transmissions are reduced outside peak hours.

The Arabic medium wave service to Syria and Lebanon will be cut from 18 hours a day to eight, while the service to Egypt will drop to six hours from 17.5.
English medium wave to Israel, Lebanon and Jordan will also be slashed from 16-18 hours daily to four.
Cyprus station

The closure of the Cyprus short wave relay station will see the loss of 26 jobs.
These are Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Babcock employees who are funded by the World Service.
Peter Horrocks said that the changes reflected listening trends, as audiences increasingly embrace tv, mobiles and the internet over short wave radio.
'The changes are in line with our overall strategic aim of ensuring that we are able to respond to changing audience needs and invest in the way audiences consume news,' he said.
'Short wave audiences are declining as radio audiences come to rely increasingly on medium wave and FM, and there has been a rapid growth of television and digital media.'
The government's 2010 Comprehensive Spending Review set the World Service the target of saving £42m by April 2014. It has already achieved nearly £30m with the loss of five language services and around 480 jobs.

Monitoring Somaliland


All times UTC  * sign-on / sign-off*

Log edited for clarity

7120 kHz, Radio Hargaysa, 1310-1400* and *1501, Oct 25. Am now able to definitely confirm they have an English program, probably started in English at 1320, but I was unable to confirm English until 1328 with female announcer. After 1330, male announcer remains in English, 1336 announcement for the end of the program. Filler pop music played (not as Horn of Africa style)  until  1340. English segment with an interval signal type music that I have heard before on their English audio streaming at their website. At 1340 clearly switched over to what sounded like Somali language with local news (many mentions of “Somaliland”) and international news (several mentions of President “Obama”) to 1350, followed by Horn of Africa music. Station identification at 1359 for “Radio Hargaysa” (so no name change yet!). Signal began out poorly with intermittent interference from strong over-the-horizon radar and improved to almost fair by sign off. Another sign on noted at 1501 with Horn of Africa music. Signal weak. At 1504 a big boost to the audio output with reciting from the Qur’an (qira’ut). With better conditions it might be possible to actually hear some specific details of their English program.

Was interested to hear from Dave Valko from the east coast. He was also able to hear them today. His reception began at 1301, which tends to indicate they broadcast from 1300 to 1400 and again beginning at about 1500

Ancient DX Report 1900

During the year 1900, which many people would identify as the first year in the new century, multitudes of wireless signals in Morse Code were noted in many countries on five wide spread continents.  Long distance coverage for wireless transmissions began to increase quite rapidly; and in addition, wireless equipment was installed into a large numbers of ships, mainly naval vessels, though some cargo & passenger ships as well.

            In England for example, Marconi reported that his manufacturing company had supplied transmitting & receiving equipment for 26 ships and six coastal stations.  In addition Captain Jackson of the Royal Navy at Devonport on the south coast of England provided an additional 19 sets for navy usage during this same time period. 

            In October, Marconi commenced work on the construction of two major coastal wireless stations, a larger one at Poldhu and a smaller one at the Lizard, both on the Cornwall coast. The large Poldhu station was designed for international communication, and the smaller Lizard station was designed as a fill in for Poldhu as needed, and also to check on the actual performance of Poldhu.

            Germany opened its first permanent wireless station as a maritime coastal station on Borkum Island on February 19.  Then, half-a year later, two more wireless stations were opened in Germany for mutual communication, one at Kugalbake at the mouth of the River Elbe, and the other 30 miles distant on the island of Heligoland. 

            Russia also opened its first maritime wireless stations during the year 1900, one at Hogland Island and the other 25 miles distant at Kymi on the coast of Finland.  The Finnish station operated in Morse Code on 1155 kHz. 

            Over in the Americas, there were three successful attempts at wireless communication by voice.      In the Spring of the year 1900, the Canadian born Reginald Fessenden established a wireless station for the Weather Bureau on Cobb Island in the Potomac River some 50 miles south of Washington DC.  On December 23, he successfully transmitted the human voice over a distance of one mile from one end of the island to the other with the use of two wireless masts 50 feet tall.  Due to the fact that this transmission was via spark wireless, the voice comprehension was almost unintelligible.

            It is also claimed that Archie Collins successfully transmitted the human voice over a distance of one mile across the Delaware River in the United States during the year 1900.  For this event, he used the spark transmitter that he had developed during the previous year.

            Down in South America the Catholic priest Padre Landell de Moura made several successful voice transmissions on the edge of Sao Paulo in Brazil.  He conducted his experiments in the vicinity of the hill Santana; and on June 3, he made a successful transmission to the down town area, Avenida Paulista, a distance of 5 miles, and this was reported in the city newspaper.  

            De Moura had invented three different though related systems of transmission & reception and an examination of his circuitry reveals that he was at that time actually a little ahead of his fellow inventors in Europe and the United States.

            De Moura gave technical names to his inventions, which in English could be described as follows:-

                        1. Anematophone       A wireless telephone              

                        2. Teletition                  A wireless telegraph

                        3. Wavemeter             A wave transmitter

            Down in Australia, successful wireless experiments were independently conducted in three different states.  Mr. Henry W. Jenvey, Post Office Engineer for the state of Victoria, sent a telegram to a fellow experimenter on November 17, in which he mentions the success of some of his own wireless experiments.

            Early in the year 1900, Mr. W. P Hallam of Hobart, the capital city of the island state of Tasmania, conducted successful wireless transmissions between ship and shore; and up in Queensland, the navy conducted successful transmissions between the gunboat HMQS “Gayundah” and the shore based navy depot at Kangaroo Point, in suburban Brisbane, the state capital.

            Over in Europe, the Belgian passenger ship, “Princesse Clementine”, was fitted with Marconi wireless equipment which was called into action for several wireless experiments over progressively increasing distances, at 50 miles & 60 miles and then 90 miles.  The German luxury liner, “Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse” was the first passenger ship in the world to be fitted with wireless, on February 28, 1900, and their new equipment achieved a distance of 60 miles.

            The Russian navy vessel “General-Admiral Apraksin” carried personnel for the installation of the wireless station on the island of Hogland but it became stranded in the frozen waters of the Gulf of Bothnia at the end of April.  A rescue ship was summoned by wireless, the icebreaker “Yermak”, which came and freed the ice bound “Apraksin”.  

            Off the east coast of Africa, wireless equipment was installed into 5 vessels of the British navy.  This equipment was a blending of wireless equipment from English Marconi & German Siemens which had been imported into South Africa during the Boer War.  The 5 navy vessels established a new distance record for wireless, covering a distance of 250 miles from Delgoa Bay in Mozambique to Johannesburg in South Africa.  It should be mentioned though, that this accomplishment was made in a cascade relay, from one ship to another.    

            Next month, you will hear another bulletin of Ancient DX News, and this time it will cover the year 1901.

Pitcairn on the Air !

Back three years ago, we presented a series of topics here in Wavescan on the story of wireless and radio on lonely Pitcairn Island, way out there in the wide areas of the South Pacific.  That series of topics covered the entire spectrum of wireless and radio events on the island, beginning with the first attempt at the usage of wireless in 1921, and ending with the dismantling of the government wireless station in 1994.

            Interestingly, seven years later, that is during the year 2005, the government made an assessment study of the needs on Pitcairn and they recommended that a radio station should be installed on the island.  And that is exactly what has happened.  In fact, these days, the small population of residents on Pitcairn, numbering around fifty, can tune in to three broadcasting stations, two radio & one TV.

            Just one year after the government recommended that a radio station should be installed on the island, the first new radio broadcasting station was inaugurated.  In August 2006, this new, and we should say, very small radio broadcasting station was launched, with just a ½ watt power output on 100.4 MHz FM. 

            Programming for the new Pitcairn Radio consisted mainly of Country & Western, recorded music, with Christian music during the hours of Saturday. The station was on the air full time, 24 hours a day.

            However, on Pitcairn, they quickly realized that many of their FM receivers automatically defaulted and retuned to 87.5 MHz when the power went off.  Consequently, the transmission frequency of their new radio station was adjusted accordingly to 87.5 MHz, so that when power came on again, the radio receivers would already be adjusted to that FM channel.

            The power of the transmitter has been increased to 2½ watts, and the station is now on the air only when the island power generator is running, that is for about 10 hours daily.  This neat little radio station is operated by local resident, Paul Warren.

            Five years after the first little FM station was inaugurated, two more broadcasting stations were installed; one TV and another FM.

            On August 1 last year, Pitcairn TV took to the air, with 3½ watts on the UHF channel 29.  Programming for this broadcast outlet is provided via satellite from the Hope TV building, which is adjacent to the world headquarters of the Adventist church on the edge of suburban Washington DC.  The TV signal from the Hope Channel is provided by the satellite NSS9, and the downlink relay in English via Pitcairn TV is on the air daily from 8:30 am till 10:00 pm.

            The programming source, Hope TV from Silver Spring Maryland is on the air worldwide with a dozen different program channels in many European & Asian languages.

            At the same time as the new TV station was inaugurated last year, an additional FM station was launched also.  This new relay station carries the programming from Life Talk Radio in California and it is down linked from the same satellite that delivers the TV programming.  Life Talk Radio on Pitcairn is found at 107.0 MHz FM, and the transmitter power is just 1 watt.

            Life Talk Radio, from its studios in Simi Valley California, is on the air via more than 100 downlink relay stations throughout the United States and the Caribbean, as well as in several countries of the Pacific & in England.  Life Talk programming is made up of educational & health topics, as well as easy listening Christian music and Gospel messages.

We are indebted to David Ricquish, with Radio Heritage in Wellington New Zealand for all of the information on the 3 new radio & TV stations on Pitcairn Island.  As David stated in the information he provided to Wavescan, the man who was responsible for establishing these 3 fascinating little radio & TV stations on Pitcairn Island was fellow New Zealander, Pastor Ray Codling.  For a period of 6 years, Pastor Codling served as a missionary to the small population on Pitcairn Island, though his term of service ended quite recently.
            Now, as far as QSLs from the new radio & TV stations on Pitcairn are concerned, we would suggest that you would need to hear the stations first.  Now, the only place you would be able to hear the stations is either on the island itself, or else on a ship that is passing nearby.  If you have a few thousand dollars of spare money, that would help to get you into the area! 
            However, it would be so nice if the programming from one or all of these 3 stations was relayed on shortwave as a special event by one of the already established amateur stations on the island.  Way back half a century ago, that really did happen when amateur station VR6AC ran a few programs on shortwave.  That took place way back in 1966, but these days it would be necessary to obtain a special license for a special event radio broadcasting station on Pitcairn.

#                Weekly Highlights and Forecasts
Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 15 - 21 October 2012
Solar activity ranged from low to high levels. Activity was low during 15 - 19 October due to mostly low-level C-class flares. The largest flare of this interval was a C7 at 17/0802 UTC from Region
1596 (N07, L=150, class/area Eho/460 on 21 October) which displayed a beta-gamma magnetic configuration during most of its transit. Activity increased to high levels on 20 October due to an impulsive M9 x-ray flare at 20/1814 UTC from Region 1598 (S12, L=113, class/area Dhi/270 on 21 October) as it crossed the east limb. The M9 flare was associated with a Type II radio sweep (estimated shock speed 516 km/s) and a non-Earth-directed coronal mass ejection (CME). Activity decreased to moderate levels on 21 October due to an M1/Sf flare at 21/2003 UTC from Region 1598, which was also associated with a non-Earth-directed CME.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at high levels during most of the period.

Geomagnetic field activity was at unsettled levels early on 15 October, then decreased to quiet levels for the rest of the period.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 22 October - 17 November 2012
Solar activity is expected to be at low to moderate levels during 22 October - 02 November with M-class flare activity likely from Region 1598. Activity is expected to decrease to low levels during 03 - 17 November. However, there will be a chance for M-class flare activity beginning 15 November as (old) Region 1598 returns to the visible disk.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is expected to be at mostly high levels during 22 - 24 October. A decrease to normal to moderate flux levels is expected during 25 October - 04 November. An increase to mostly high flux levels is expected during 05 - 17 November.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels during 22 - 23 October with a slight chance for active levels due to a coronal hole high-speed stream (CH HSS). Quiet levels are
expected during 24 October - 07 November. An increase to unsettled levels is expected on 08 November due to a solar sector boundary passage followed by a co-rotating interaction region in advance of a CH HSS. A further increase to active to minor storm levels is expected on 09 November due to the onset of a CH HSS. Activity is expected to decrease to quiet to active levels on 10 November as CH HSS effects subside. A further decrease to quiet levels is expected during 11 - 17 November.
