TAIWAN: Keith Perron informa que PCJ Media esta construyendo un centro transmisor con 20 kw

Beginning last month PCJ starting building it's own SW relay station. It will be the first privately own shortwave relay station in Asia. The transmitter is a Continental 20kw. Now Continental only made 50kw and up transmitters. This was a special order for the Voice Of America from 1975 that was sold to Voice Of Free China (today Radio Taiwan International), the antenna is also a VOA design. Last year we bought the transmitter and antenna as the Government was going to close the site it was located at. They were closing it because they only broadcast a few hours a day and the those hours were moved to a new site 35kw from Taipei. So after taking apart the site and having everything transported to North Taiwan, we found a site and construction began in mid April.

The station will operate 23 hours a day 7 days a week targeting South East/East Asia and the Pacific. We will be using 2 frequencies 1 day (25MB) and 1 night (31MB). The station will also have an Orban Optimod.

Programming will be Radio Australia English and Chinese, Radio New Zealand International, Radio Free Asia and PCJ for 2 hours a day.

Tests will begin in mid August. Frequencies will be published 2 weeks in advance. I don't think we will be able to reach North America, but incase we do let me know. Radio Australia will be sending an engineer to work with the retired RTI engineer at the station.

Construction of PCJ's own relay station coming along slowly. In February I'm heading to Europe for a bit. One of my stops will be Croatia. RIZ Transmitters is supplying us with a 5kw auxiliary which we need by law to have at the site. Everything at the site will be build to withstand an earthquake of 8.0. Also confirmed that when we do start Radio Australia will be carried a few hours a day. RA's Chinese Service to China and English to South East Asia.

Programming revamp. I always found it amazing that in today's world of 2012 some stations have not revamped their programming. I also am surprised that many cold war stations are still around, but have almost no audience. Stations like Radio Prague, Polski Radio, Radio Romania, Radio Havana Cuba, Voice of Korea, Voice Of Vietnam and others. Estimates for these broadcasters on a good day is less than 1000 listeners per hour. On a bad day somewhere between 100 and 200 listeners.
