DX, DX, Y MAS DX´S ...desde diferentes partes del mundo !

BOLIVIA – 6154.95, Radio Fides, La Paz, 11/19 fair signal clear of QRM
and static at 0959 tune in, with morning news program already in
progress, hosted by YL.   Included national, local and international
items (hrd items for Santa Cruz, Bolivia; La Paz; Peru; and the Middle
East  -- “un nuevo bombardeo en Gaza, el dia de hoy”).  Musical
stingers between items and very precise time checks regularly provided
by the YL, e.g. “Las 6 de la manana, 6 minutos y 42 segundos . . .”.
CP folkloric musical burst at 1008 during ads, then more news,
regional items for Bolivia.   Het and other QRM building toward bottom
of the hour, as Fides began fading down and Asian QRMer fading up.  By
1030, entire fqy was a mess and left the station.   According to
station’s website,  signs on *0945 and this first show runs to 1030,
called “Saratasiñani” and the host is Felipa Peña. (Perry, Illinois)

BOLIVIA – 6105.52, Radio Panamericana, La Paz, 11/19 monitored fqy for
s/on, from 0945 but nothing noted until 1036, when weak signal finally
noted and flute + guitar Bolivian folkloric music in progress.
Probably running to a nominal *1030 these days rather than the
reported *1000, as nothing there when checked a few minutes earlier.
Poor reception and only readable in ECSS.  Het QRM from Asian on fqy
and at best could pick out the musical bits.  Could not hold for long.
By 1045, all but lost.  (Perry, Illinois)

BOLIVIA – 6105.52, Radio Panamericana, La Paz, indeed the one heard
here  2344-0111* on 11/18 (shutdown date).  Very poor signal at first
but faded in to a decent level 0000 and just about peaked around 0025
and maintained moderate signal thru to the s/off.  Best in ECSS with
notch, but never a great signal.  Broadcast of futbol game featuring
famous Bolivian team, “Club Bolivar” (El Mejor Club de Bolivia).
Mentions during xmsn of “cadena Boliviana” at 2345 and possible
“Rrrrrradio Panamericana” at 0002 (was not certain at that point,
tho).  Was much later able to finally determine that the webstream was
a couple minutes behind the 49 mb signal, from a replay of a
“gooooooooal!” and also a specific ad (for Banco Los Andes) at 0110,
just before the shortwave abruptly closed down.  Mentions of
“Panamericana Deportivo”.  Some initial confusion due to webstream
having different studio ancr interjecting comments, from time to time,
which were not on the shortwave xmsn.  Fqy briefly wobbled on down
from 6105.52 to 6105.49 at 0109 and then back up to .52 a minute
later.  At 0102 OM said, “ . . . de La Paz, Bolivia . . .” and 0109,
mentions “…la voz de la capital”.  Very happy to confirm that these
guys are still on the air (or back), but what a crappy signal,
compared to the way they used to bomb in on 6035, back in the day . .
. Perhaps their engineers can tweak the xmtr a bit.  (Perry, Illinois)

CHINA – 3280, Voice of Pujiang, Shanghai, noted 1225 OM in dialect on
11/17, parallel to better fqy of 5075.  No 4850 // noted, tho. (Perry,

UNID/LAOS – 6130, Unid possibly Lao National Radio, Vientiane, the one
noted here 11/17 1230 [ast 1250, weak at tune in but fading up to fair
level by 1245.  OM and YL tlks in Asian lang, lots of trouble from
ticking ute and static.   Not // Xizang 7385.  If old patterns hold,
this will improve over the next month and if Vientiane, we’ll be
hearing it quite well during our morning Asian opening in the Midwest.
(Perry, Illinois)

MYANMAR – 5915, Myanmar Radio with nice signal 1244 check, mellow SE
Asian instrumentals on 11/17.  But only 1/3 the signal of its fellow
Burmese station, 7110 Thazin, absolutely blowing in at same time,
pinning the S-meter.  (Perry, Illinois)

NID / BOLIVIA – 6105, unid Andes station, very probably Radio
Panamericana, La Paz, recently reported here by a S American DXer.
Noted 11/16 at 1040 tune-in with unmistakable Andes folklorica program
underway.  Echo anmts in between several songs by bassy OM, very slick
“big city” pro sound to anmts.  Several folkloric selections heard and
thought mention at 1041 of “Bolivia” but not 100% sure.  Rather bad
het, tuff to effectively notch, from Asian on same channel and only
fair signal at best.  This first day, found signal too late since, by
1041, already getting to end of La Paz propagation window into the
Central US.  Could only hold signal till about 1052, when co-channel
Asian station had faded-in enough to overpower my target stn.   After
this first morning’s reception (on a Friday), tried again the next
morning, but only the Asian station there.  According to R
Panamericana’s website schedule, they do sign on at *1000 on weekdays
but *1100 on weekends, so this fits . . . and next chance for me is
Monday morning.  No luck yet in local evenings, when they stay on to
0300* on local weekdays (and to 0100* on local Sat and Sun nites in La
Paz).  Hope this indeed is Panamericana, as would be very nice to have
this great old La Paz station still on the air.  First logged and
QSLed these guys on 6035 kHz back in the late 1970s.  (Perry,

PERU – 4747.10, Radio Huanta 2000, fair/good reception 11/16, strong
signal but a noisy morning.  1018 YL with lengthy PSA or commercial
for “productos cubanos”, then followed by both OM and YL in discussion
about these imports.   At 1023, more normal programming resumed with
locutor annoucing  “ . . . esta programacion llega Uds. a traves de
Radio Huanta,  en la ciudad de Huanta . . .” with a 5:23 a.m. t/ck and
then into pgm of peppy folkloric music on electric guitar –
interesting fusion!  (Perry, Illinois)

PERU – 4775, Radio Tarma, great signal on 11/16 at 1026 t/in, OM
deejay rapidly talking over OA folkloric mx in background, “… todos
Uds. amigos . . . ARRIBA!!! “   Then into huaynos featuring YLs
singing, accompanied by arpa and plucked guitar bass.  At 1029, our
over-caffeinated locutor again, this time yelling about “ . . . ahora,
aqui la musica de Cusco !!  . .”   At 1030, OM with clear “Radio
Tarma” ID and, for those just awakening, “..Amigos, el dia de hoy esta
Viernes, diez y seis.  Viernes, diez y seis!  Arriba!  Radio Tarma
presenta ‘musica folklorica nacional’."  At 1034, nice rustic
accordion music and at 1035, OM and YL yelling en eco, mentioning
“Radio Tarma” over start of next song.  (Perry, Illinois)

** KUWAIT. 15540, Nov 16 at 1803 check, nothing audible from R. Kuwait`s two-sesquihour English service, nor has it been for weeks. MOI is woefully ignorant of basic SW propagation, staying on this too-high frequency every winter season. I doubt it is even making it to Europe on the way to North America, with the MUF usually falling below that frequency as it is starting 3-4 hours after sunset at the origination, maybe 2-3 hours after sunset at the critical first reflexion point. It might still appear on an exceptional occasion. Dave Valko in Pennsylvania reported it Nov 13 at 1937, ``not very strong``. As for the Arabic service to W NAm which is still scheduled 2000-2400 on 17550, and was quite good in the summer --- forget it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

"This morning I spoke to the Base Esperanza and I talked with Mirta, a station announcer. She told me that the transmissions are sporadic and they are performing maintenance on the station to put it on air in early 2013.

I left her with the feeling that even the shortwave broadcasts will not be regular, as broadcasters and technicians aregetting ready to leave the ice continent, and budge up a new staff that will be working in the coming month of February in LRA36. The idea is to leave the radio in perfect condition for the next Antarctic campaign. He also mentioned that the station would come out with a power of 1 kW and they currently broadcast in the FM band for the inhabitants of the base and its surroundings."

Asunto: Re: [Lista ConDig] Antartida: LRA36 ha retornado al aire hoy, segun comentario en mi blog.

Esta mañana hablé a la Base Esperanza y me conecté con Mirta, una locutora de la emisora, me comentó que las transmisiones son esporádicas y que se encuentran realizando mantenimiento en la estación, a fin de colocarla al aire a principios del 2013. 

Me dejó la sensación de que todavía las emisiones en Onda Corta no serán regulares, ya que locutores y técnicos están aprontándose para abandonar el contienente helado, y dar paso a una nueva dotación que estarán trabajando en el mes de febrero en la querida LRA36. La idea es dejar la radio en perfecto estado para la próxima campaña antártica. También mencionó que la estación saldría con una potencia de 1 Kw y por el momento emite su programación en la banda de FM para los habitantes de la base y sus alrededores.

Así que habrá que esperar un "poquitín" de tiempo para practicar DX con una de las pocas estaciones argentinas que transmite por ondas decamétricas.

A rather strange way to learn that LRA36 has resumed broadcasts today has just happened:

Mirta, co-announcer of R Arcángel San Gabriel, during the 2012 Antarctic Campaign has just commented in a post of my blog "La Galena del Sur" featuring the station on Aug. 2012,  that they are on the air from today on.

This is the message posted as a comment that I am roughly translating from Spanish:

"My name is Mirta and I share the studio, during this year 2012 at Base Esperanza stationwith two more partners and the technical operator and we are very excited because today we returned to convey to everyone after the repair of equipment. We are proud to share this news with everyone!"

Original text in Spanish:

"Mi nombre es Mirta y durante este año 2012 comparto el estudio de la emisora en base Esperanza junto a 2 compañeras más y el operador técnico y estamos muy emocionados por que hoy volvimos a transmitir para todo el mundo luego de la reparacion de los equipos. Es un orgullo  poder compartir esta noticia con todos!!!"

GUAM. 15260, UT Sunday Nov 11 at 2207, bits of gamelan music mixed with disjointed Indonesish talk. HFCC and Aoki show it`s KSDA which at 2200-2230 shares Javanese and Sundanese depending on day of week: Javanese on Sun/Tue/Thu, Sundanese on Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat. I would have guessed Javanese already, presumably closer to standard Indonesian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Se apaga un mito de la radio en Rusia. Radio Liberty, la voz de Estados Unidos que susurró al oído de los disidentes soviéticos durante la guerra fría, ha dejado de emitir con la entrada en vigor de la ley que prohíbe las emisiones de radios controladas por extranjeros. A partir de ahora, sólo podrá escucharse a través de internet, lo que limitará drásticamente su ya reducida audencia:

- "Hay muchos nostálgicos, y entre estos, hay muchos que siguen escuchando "radio libertad", explica el veterano periodista ucraniano Savik Shuster, que comenzó su carrera en Radio Liberty. "Son personas acostumbradas a afrontar todo tipo de dificultades, interrupciones en la emisión y problemas para captar la onda media". 

"El objetivo siempre ha sido informar. Porque no hay un libre acceso a la información, porque no hay libertad de prensa, porque todo está controlado por el Kremlin. La gente necesita diferentes fuentes de información. Y ese es el papel y el propósito de "radio libertad".

Considerada un instrumento de Washington, Radio Liberty ha sido blanco de numerosos ataques del Kremlin. La ley que este sábado ha entrado en vigor, la ha forzado a despedir a más de 40 de su medio centenar de empleados.
