DX, DX Y MAS DX`S....22 Octubre 2012.

PERU – 4826.60, tentatively Radio Sicuani, Sicuani, came across this during 10/15 morning bandscan of 60 meters, first noted at 1013.  Sig only poor-fair QSA, fading in and out, over and under a rushing static ambient noise level.   Minor QRM from soft, swishing CODAR.  Live ancr in SS talking with OA folklorico music.  Program mainly of him talking, interspersed with, or over, rustic huaynos music.  Seemed to possibly have been a program type which has become rare (overtaken by technology)  in this age of internet communication:  a morning ‘peticiones’ or ‘mensajes’ program directed to surrounding provinces – as heard him calling out ‘Atencion!’ and giving phone numbers and city names (again hrd mention of Huancavelica, as per previous logging.).  Fragments of speech readable at fade-in peaks, “ . . . sintonia al dia de hoy . . . en la calle de . . .numero telefono . . . .”  By 1025, signal had already deteriorated, tho OM could still be hrd with his rapid-fire talking.  (Perry – Illinois)
ECUADOR – 4814.98, tentatively Radio “El Buen Pastor”, Saraguro, noted 1038 on 10/15 with poor-fair signal, deep fades, had probably just signed-on as not noted on previous check of the fqy, a few minutes earlier.  Schlock pop ballad with organ, guitar backing.  1041 OM ancr, very low mod and station getting creamed by CODAR, believe SS but not totally sure. Have also heard indigenous vernacular lang on this station.  At 1054 noise level now coming up too high, so opted to leave this and go listen to the daily s/on by R Oriental on 4781.70 at 1058-1100a.   Still need a 100% ID on this one, this season, just to reconfirm that one of the few HCs continues to survive on 60 meters. (Perry – Illinois)

60-METER BANDSCAN 10/15:   A moderately okay morning for 60 meter propagation to LA, but a bit noisy/ . . .  many frequencies below are approximations, only did precision measurements on those few where info might be significant:

4700a – 0945 noting Radio San Miguel, Riberalta, Bolivia, with good signal but fadey.  Familiar OM with deep base voice and bottom-of-barrel sound quality, giving t/ck.

4717a – 0955 R Yura, Aillu Yura, Bolivia, with fair signal also fading in/out. Huainos, weak.

4785 -   R Caiari, Porto Velho, the Brazilian,  doing well at 0955.

4790 – Radio Vision, Chiclayo, Peru, strong signal and missing the usual technical mess from its xmtr or wherever .  Nice listening quality.

4865.02 – R Verdes Florestas, Cruzeiro do Sul, Brazil, with piledriving signal 0959, OM tlkg in Indian language with religious music in background.  Then at 1000, into pop hits with OM in what I think was PP.

4877.92 – Rdif. Roraima, Brazil, nice and strong w/OM PP live ads bring read.  Fine signal, no technical issues today.

4885 – R Clube do Pará, Belem, strong as usual, 1002.

4925.24 – ditto, R Educação Rural, Tefé, Brazilian booming at 1002.

5039.19 – R Libertad de Junin, Junin, Peru only poor signal under rushing noise at 1008 first check.  Recheck at 1031 and now strong signal, OM with echo ads (“Mas baratos!”) with quenas in background.  Also, “Las 5 de la manana . . . escuchande al program . . .ciudad de Junin . . .”

4747.09 – at 1012 recheck, R Huanta 2000, Huanta, Peru had now signed on, fairly good signal with huaynos pgm.  Again, probably nominal *1000.

4775a – Radio Tarma, Peru, usual great signal at 1012, folklorico.  Probably signed on shortly after 1000, not noted when on fqy a few minutes earlier.

4826.58 – tentatively Radio Sicuani, Peru, at 1013 when first noted folklorico mx here.  (See separate log report.)

4955 – Radio Cultural Amauta, huge signal nearly melting my speakers at 1030 check.

4814.98 – at 1038 noting station now here, tent. Radio “El Buen Pastor”, which had apparently just signed on.  Probably nominal *1030.  (See separate report). (Perry – Illinois)

INDONESIA – 4749.96, RRI Makassar, Sulawesi, hrd 10/18 and 10/20
during 1220 – 1258 period.  OM ancr in II hosting program of Indo pop
orchls and vocal selections;  lady ancr took over near the TOH.
Getting late for 60 meters, but by 1235 one of the best signals on the
band ( > 4835 Alice Springs, 4940 China, etc.) though only moderate
QSA at best.  Holding up to nearly 1300 amid ever-increasing noise
level as day breaks here in Chicagoland.  Lady ancr at 1258.  Can’t
copy anmts yet, but definitely Indonesian.  No ID but tnx to Ron
Howard for his on this precise fqy.   Since seemed a decent opening
both mornings, tried for RRI Wamena, which also might show up on 60
meters,  but “stesiun tidak ada”!   Very sad state of affairs, with
only a couple of Indo tropical band stations still active on shortwave
. . . a far cry from the hundreds which were on the air back in 1979,
when I was a young man motorbiking around Indonesia to visit RPDK
stations on Java, Sumatra and Bali! (Perry – Illinois)

BRAZIL – 9665.03, Unid station but strongly suspect Radio Voz
Missionaria, Florianapolis, noted 10/19 with fair signal, fading in
and out and peaking by 0935 . . . best signal of the thin lot on 31
meters at this time.  0923-1000+, with program os segued mellow vocals
in PP with various different backgrounds, such as with xylo/accordion;
orchl backing;  guitar combo; other.  Fading by 0950 and vy weak
almost gone by 1000, when lady ancr finally hrd very low level, f/by
OM.   RVM has been reported here in the past and is the most likely
Brazilian candidate.  (Perry – Illinois)

PERU – 4955.00, Radio Cultural Amauta, Huanta, abrupt *1022 with
guitar music and YL vocalists, like a choir.  At 1027, usual
bassy-voiced OM with s/on anmt in SS including ID, t/ck and schedule
info for the day.  Kudos to these guys, technical they are executing
magnificently, and their early morning folklorico selections are
outstanding.  (Perry – Illinois)

1071 17/10 1735 AIR Rajkot, India, Urdu Service, songs and talks like reports, at 1738 good also with portable Degen 1103 & its inside ferrite antenna, better than on // 6155

4880 17/10 1810 SW Radio Africa, Meyerton, South Africa, interview in African language, fair

6210 17/10 2234 Voice of Greece, songs //9420 weak (this is reported as a mix product)


MEXICO – 6184.99, Radio Educacion, XEPPM, after being missing in
action for many months, noted back with usual enormous signal, but
slightly muffled modulation, at 0020 on 10/16.  Pgm of cultural and
historical commentary, interspersed with snippets of many varieties of
regional music from Mexico (mariachi, ranchera, boleros, etc.)  At
0026, OM mentioned, “Aqui esta ’Mexico Encantando,’ un programa de
Radio Educacion . . .”   Not hearing in mornings yet, during 1000-1100
checks.  (Perry – Illinois)

PAPUA NEW GUINEA – 3385.00, Radio East New Britain, Rabaul, fair
signal 1150 on 10/16 with pop music thumping away.  Nx at top of the
hour.  Also noting PNGs on 3205, 3235 and 3315 this morning, but not
3260, 3275, others.  Losing signal by 1210 or so, with rising noise
level. (Perry – Illinois)

UNID / LAOS / CHINA – 6130.00, 1215 to past 1230 on 10/16, looking for
Vientiane and believe it is likely one of the two stations being heard
here at fair level but well mixed up!   Noting 2 stations in exact
zero beat – no het – with one sounding very much like RNL did last
year (lady ancr, type of music), with the other possibly the listed
Chinese regional at Xizang.  Neither station doing all that well, but
should improve now as season progresses.  Using active //s for Xizang
(6200, 4920?) should be able to start ‘mentally unpiling’ these two
stations.  Vientiane always a sentimental and much-desired target for
me.  By the way, 7110 Thazin (Myanmar) also doing very well this
morning amid local noise,  at this same time, confirming 6-7 mHz
propagation indeed well open to SE Asia at this time.  (Perry –

PERU – 4789.90, Radio Vision, Chiclayo, 0940 on 10/17, appears to have
mainly fixed its xmtr problems as signal really blowing in, this
morning.  Only a little bit of the previous ‘buzzing’.  Armchair
signal as OM drones on in sermony SS, with YL popping in regularly
with a perky, brief t/cks (Perry – Illinois)

BRAZIL – 4865.02-.03, Radio Verdes Florestas, Cruzeiro do Sul, very
nice big signal 10/17 at 0943 with light pop songs, OM in PP vocals
with small combo.  At 0945, clear recorded ID by OM in light echo,
caught in part: “Radio Verdes Florestas . . . onda tropical . . . .
kilohertz . . . onda media . . . kilohertz . . . . a Cruz!”   Then
into live rlg program.  Still fine at 1014 recheck, big signal with
mushy modulation, and holding up past 1032.  (Perry – Illinois)

BOLIVIA – 3310.00, Radio Mosoj Chaski, Cochabamba, well heard 10/17 at
0950 t/in, nice plucked guitar and charango mx, YLs singing huaynos.
At 0958.30, segued to short instrumental Andes theme followed by
canned ID by OM in SS.  Very first words were “Mosoj Chaski” (did not
hear ‘Radio’) and “onda media”.  At 0959.30, live studio ancr in SS,
“Ahora, son las 6 de la manana” and then further SS tlk.  At 1002 came
high-voiced YL in Quechua, long talk, possibly a sermon.  Left at
1010. (Perry – Illinois)

PERU – 5039.18, Radio Libertad de Junin, nice signal 10/17 at 1015
when locutor in middle of ad string including for an ‘abogado’ and
‘supermercado’. At 1020, lamenting YL vocalist singing Peruvian
folklorico song with chorale of ladies yipping/whining in background.
At 1025, echo ad, plugging  ‘una margarina’.  Then YL en eco, “Las 5!
y 25 minutos!!”.  Then OM studio ancr rattles off some program info,
mentioning “… amigos . . . y los ninos . . . 5 – 26 . . . cada dia a
las 5 horas . . . el dia de hoy . . . peruano . . .”  Tuned out 1029.

Ciao Ecco qualche altro ascolto, da Bocca di Magra.
La propagazione non è buona. Stamani sulle medie non c'era nulla di interessante. E anche in onde corte mi pare che ci sia una certa scarsità di propagazione.
