10 over S9 in KCMO.  Show seems to be about getting high.....indeed. I'm afraid I wouldn't know anything about that.

S9+10 in KCMO  Intuned at 1:33 (my lucky number) to song about bow legged women followed by "..time to get yer fuckin' ass home.." . Really great tunes & nice signal Thanx for the show.

1:40z might be another station underneath. Could be peskies. listening on Satellit 750 so no waterfall.

Is Disco Palace still on the air? I thought they had gone to an internet only thing & dropped shortwave in A14

S9+20 in KCMO. Intuned at 2:00 to ID & E-mail addy followed by swing tune. Really nice signal. Thanx for the show Mr Weed

Heard on Twente while pretending to work. 10255usb at 16:05 UTC.    V30 I think is the enigma designation for this one. If I am wrong I am sure one of the more knowledgeable number station followers will correct me.

Thanks to Z

Although it doesn't actually say that they are closing down shortwave, it is implied. Leasing the sites would entail closing the SW transmitters currently there I guess.

Shortwave Broadcast / Wavescan via WRMI 9955 Khz 3:20 UTC 4/18/14

Heard while dog walking with PL660. Constant CUbaRM on frequency but the program was still listenable.

I was listening to Uganda via Twente at the same time while I was at work, Glen. It did seem exceptionally strong.

Shortwave Broadcast / Re: Surprise catch; maybe now using relay?
« on: April 17, 2014, 1420 UTC »
Radio Romania is targeted at North America at 20:30 - 20:57. They don't use any relays that I know of. This broadcast is only 30 minutes long unlike the 3:00 - 4:00 one , also aimed at N America on 7350//9645.

17510      R.Romania Intl      2030      2057   English   Tiganesti   Romania   smtwtfs      ROR a14   300   307      4445N02606E

So...its 307 degrees from Romania with 300 KW. Easily propagatable.

I'm at work & cant use JAVA but I suspect this:


will show it comes right at us.

Shortwave Broadcast / Re: All India Radio 11670 KHz

Same here except AIR is pretty much on top of RHC. They sort of flip flop over & under each other. On Monday I could hear no AIR signal due to the strong RHC signal. Today they each seem to hold their own.

Havana was not on 11670 yesterday so maybe Arnie realized his error & moved or just dropped this frequency.

I always check around 11 meters when I am walking the dog in the afternoons & when the band is open I hear this kind of stuff above , below & in the CB band. Jerry Springer show is an apt description. the RF equivalent of throwing chairs at each other (or was that Phil Donahue's show...Geraldo Rivera,maybe).

I think only Radio Romania is on at this time. I listen to their English program on 7350 most evenings. Its English from 3:00-4:00 then Romanian from 4:00 to 5:00. I think the 40 meter ham band stops at 7300 KHz so I don't know what you were hearing.

General Radio Discussion / International SW Disaster Test

Save The Date: International SW Disaster Test

April 2, 2014 - Members of the shortwave listening community can pencil in their logbooks an extremely exciting upcoming date. On June 4-5, 2014, listeners can attempt to log an international test being organized by the High Frequency Coordination Commission of the International Radio for Disaster Relief project.

During these dates, the IRDR will be tested on the shortwave bands at the Media Summit on Climate Change, Information and Communication Technologies, and Disaster Risk Reduction in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The IRDR will simulate a major disaster occurring in Southeast Asia, and multiple international broadcasters will be cooperating to support coordinated humanitarian coverage for the impacted region.

Mr. Oldrich Cip of the HFCC graciously confirmed to ReliefAnalysis.com that the roster of broadcaster participants is being organized, and there could well be QSL opportunities for this historic occasion via those outlets.

Click here for a new Fact Sheet about the relevancy of shortwave broadcasting and the IRDR from the HFCC.

Click here my thoughts on how shortwave radio can cross the digital divide, literacy divide, and disaster divide. This piece recently ran on the web site of InterAction—a coalition of 300 international NGOs.

I’m going to be closely following this event as it gets closer. I’m very excited about what this test could mean for the evolution of humanitarian applications in the world of shortwave broadcasting.

If you’d like to receive additional updates, feel free to sign up for the Relief Analysis Radio newsletter in the box on the right—I’d be delighted to connect with you.
