** AUSTRALIA. Re: 3210-USB, Unique Radio: I meant to say between Sydney and Brisbane! Not Melbourne. Fixed:

** AUSTRALIA. 3210-USB, Unique Radio: see USA [non] WORLD OF RADIO. Unique was originally in Gunnedah NSW, and has been off the air for most of a year while being relocated to Manilla NSW. U.R. had been referred to as in “northwest NSW“ but both these are really in NE NSW. In fact they are only 51.5 km or 32 miles apart. They are about halfway between Sydney and Brisbane, but further inland; on Google map there is a nearby place called New Mexico! Settled by immigrants?

** CHINA. 10960, June 6 at 1359, S3-S4 Chinese music, CNR1 jammer. No others audible in the WOOB 11 or 13 MHz ranges (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, June 6 at 0603, this RHC English is off already; bodes ill for Sunday Esperanto supposedly at 0700. 6000 however is unusually still on after 0600. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13761 & 13639 approx., June 6 at 1352, weak spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM, plus/minus ~61 kHz; no further multiples audible. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI [non]. 5995, June 6 at 0603, ORTM is off again; while 6000 RHC is still on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. See USA, FM notes mixed in

** ROMANIA. See UGANDA [non]

** UGANDA [non]. Kai Ludwig replies on WOR iog to my 15170 report:

[WOR] Uganda broadcast 15170 kHz — Jun 5 at 11:26 PM

Some comments in the order of the points raised…

First, the way the transmissions start sound like cutting into a running web radio stream. So this does not appear to be a really new venture, just a limited shortwave relay being added to an already existing internet radio station. If only there would be any hints at what to search for… And indeed it really sounds like an effort by people with no previous experience in radio production whatsoever. The dedicated reference to CET could well be a hint at the location of these people. I would not be surprised if it turns out to be Germany.

I assume that on May 15 the Union of Oromo Evangelical Churches program audio appeared on 15170 kHz by mistake. Is this broadcast really cancelled? It could also continue on 15515 kHz as scheduled or at least shown at https://www.nexus.org/member-services/radio-and-tv/schedules/a21-schedule/

There is of course no point at all in discussing the HFCC registrations for 15170 kHz. And a huge signal far off the target area could also indicate a poor directionality of the antenna.

Armenia: Could be, at least years ago Spaceline had a partnership with the operator of the Gavar station. Still Kostinbrod would be the usual suspect. Or Romania, in spite of all the equipment faults (it would not hurt to check if perhaps a further RRI frequency is missing in the 1500-1600 hour). 19 metres is not too high to reach Central Europe from the Balkans under broad daylight. Romania uses it for German, Bulgaria used to do so as well. I think Finland, over a similar distance, too. And here in eastern Germany the best BBC frequency from late morning to afternoon used to be 15070 kHz… Kai Ludwig“

BUT Dave Kenny, UK, replies to that:

“On 24 May I heard world music between 1500-1529 on 15170, then at 1529 a single Radio Romania International interval signal before the transmitter went off air. This perhaps indicates the use of a transmitter in Romania for the Ugandan opposition broadcast? The Uganda broadcast seems to be on air mostly on Saturdays and Monday, perhaps also on Sundays. 73s Dave“

And Kai Ludwig again:

“Aaah, this of course nails it. Also the audio processing pretty much points at Romania, less at Kostinbrod and even less at Gavar. Just did still not mention it as first bet because of the equipment failures. (I understand the third transmitter at Tsiganeshti, originally installed there as aux and, I understand, used for IRRS broadcasts on earlier occasions, is written off for already some time?)

No transmissions of Radio Romania International are scheduled*) for Galbeni between 1500 and 1530. So it seems that they squeeze the 15170 kHz transmission into this gap. Could be the first time since the days of Radio Moldova International that this station transmits other programming than Radio Romania.

And there would be no connection between this and the Oromo Evangelical Churches transmission – unless it came from Romania instead of Kostinbrod, too. *) http://ab27.bplaced.net/rri.pdf Kai“

So much for the accuracy of TDOA DF, which must be viewed only as an approximation, or last resort lacking more substantial clues. The HFCC-registered 300 kW power also matches for Romanian transmitters.

15170, I monitor via UTwente again Sunday June 6: 1458 strong carrier is on; 1459 heavy rock music, almost sounds like played backwards. 1500 pip and pause, a bit more music, and then: “This is Comrade Reshide Kasato[?], fellow comrades“ — pays tribute to “all our comrades who have lost their lives fighting for freedom and independence…“ 1502 some deep fades, then off the air for a few seconds, back at S9+5/10. Somewhat eloquent, backs the “winner“ of elexion; stays in English until 1512 Luganda(?) except for some English terms mixed. I`m not recording but hope someone got this.

1514 a bit more English mixed in. 1517 “the president-elect will be making some speeches on this channel“. 1520 gives his name again, “thanks for listening to me — we really did it“. 1521 same guy starts over another speech. 1526 interrupts himself for a third but very similar speech. There are occasional squeaks/chirps in the background. 1527 cut to a fragment of music and chop off air early. But 1528 back on for the backwards? music only until off before 1529*

Web search on the name as I have spelt it + Uganda reaches only my own earlier report in HCDX, so it`s certainly wrong.

WOR iogroup reply from the UK: “The speaker on the broadcasts I’ve heard is Rashid Kasaato, who also mentions the Ugandan opposition leader Bobi Wine. Dr Rashid Kasaato has been on (internet station?) People Power Radio. 73, Alan Pennington“

To which roger, Germany replies with this live music stream, which interrupts itself for a State Farm/Enid! ad at 1717:

Wolfgang Bueschel also reports at 1604 UT June 6: “ROMANIA IRRS Milano etc. Uganda broadcast 15170 kHz. Noted S=9+30 or -48dBm signal on first hop from RadioCom Romania into Zakynthos, Athens, and Cyprus KIWI-Net SDR units, listen to attached recording 1500 til 1527:45 UT CUT OFF FEED stream; suddenly scratch switch off. And 2nd recording, start at 1529:10 again, 40 seconds M U S I C feed again to 1530 STOP finally.

At all the time heard an heavy OTHR splatter on adjacent 15180 kHz broadband on 15170 to 15190 kHz.

Tiganesti / Saftica: at same 1500-1530 time slot noted also 5910 kHz RRI Ukrainian via 100 kW Saftica site on air. 9580 kHz RRI Russian in DRM mode via 90 kW Tiganesti tx #2 on air. 11810 kHz was O F F air Tiganesti tx #1“

In my yesterday`s recording, roger had identified the fill music:

“”1522 nice Mideastern-sounding songs until off at 1529*”

!!! Western Celtic 😉

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary support: thanks this week to Doug Brown, London, Ontario, for a generous cheque on a US bank to Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA; and comments:

** U S A. June 6 at 1620-1701 UT, a caradio-in-the-garage FMDX session spurred by a 103 MHz Es MUF spike on the DXMAP, continuous bandscanning at least the lower half; and the clearest shots into the vertical antenna are from north and east; at least in the visible spectrum vs metal door to the south. Concentrating on the few `open` or semi-open channels. Turns out, not a bit of Es logged but I get to explore the KS & OK fringe signals.

92.1, June 6 at 1620, $ pilot during sermon; may well be live as it`s The Church Hour on Sunday. KFXI Marlowe OK, country station to the south with 100 kW is normally dominant over BA/Tulsa weaker if slightly closer station. At 1658 the preacher finishes and turns it over to a layperson for some event announcements, who says they need beef- or rabbit-jerky for Fathers` Day; but then outro as from FBaptist Church of Marlowe, on KFXI!

However, I`ve also heard gospel-huxtering on 92.1 at various other times in the week. Per WTFDA FM Database the most likely is this just across the OK border: “KCCA-LP 92.1 ANTHONY KS RELIGIOUS TEACHING 0.1 0.0 kW -2.0 0.0 m HAAT 37-09-12 98-01-51“

104.9, June 6 circa 1628 UT, trace of gospel huxter, but it`s Sunday morning. I continue to doubt that the new station in Ringwood, a few miles west of Enid, is really on the air: it`s EWTN`s KEUC, 100 watts. Then there`s Protestant 5/5 kW KREK in Bristow OK.

97.3, June 6 at 1631 UT, ID as KK#Q, Q-97, country. No hits searching on Q97 or Q-97; got to be Q 97 —
“KKJQ 97.3 GARDEN CITY KS COUNTRY Q 97 FM 100.0 kW ERP 244.0 m HAAT 37-46-48 100-27-36 2B62 KKJQ THE DAWG -“

90.9 & 91.1 both have solid Air-One signals in Enid, as if a twice-as-broad single station. 90.9 is axually 13.5 kW KOKF Edmond, while 91.1 is 450-watt KKRD Enid. Shifting between them they seem synchro; but with second radio DX-398 on one of them, I can tell that they are an echo apart, 91.1 leading! DB shows KKRD relays 92.7 KYRA, huh? No such station around here. It`s in Thousand Oaks CA, must be flagship of Air One. But does not show KOKF as relaying it, tho it surely does too.

KKRD site is still downtown Enid; as original KBVV it was atop the now-decrepit and uninhabited skyscraper Broadway Tower. A local church started it with some local programming, plugged into Moody, I think, ultimately sold it off to the so-called Educational Media Foundation a.k.a. Air One, mostly gospel music. But now the blown-up FCC map puts a pin several blox NE of BT, just SE of the intersexion of East Oak and North Third, west of RR trax. I must go have a look there sometime.

94.9, June 6 at 1638 UT, “music from the 80s and 90s, NCK 94-9“: 100/100 kW KNCK Concordia KS. A brief fadeup, normally nothing.

96.3, June 6 at 1643 UT, suddenly a VG signal, normally nothing; could it be Es? NO! semi-local adstring for Harry`s Razor Blades; Roger Haskins Insurance; news brief from some national net; 1647 United States Mortgage ending with a long rapid condensed tag impossible to understand, but CYA! Buylewis.com (?), finally FNB of Spearville, 385-2636 and ad for National Beef of Dodge City. 1701 UT “The Country Leader, Garden City“. So it`s this one, CoL midway between Garden and Dodge Cities: “KERP 96.3 INGALLS KS COUNTRY 96.3 THE MARSHALL 100.0 kW H&V 213.0 m HAAT 37-56-30 100-18-44“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, June 6 from *0559:37, R. Vanuatu cuts on 3 x 3945, but JBA in HNL. A few minutes earlier, 7260 = 2 x 3945 was likewise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
