Shortwave Broadcast / Re: B13 New Frequency Lists
« on: November 03, 2013, 0001 UTC »
Good stuff, Rob.  I'm not the best at IDing DX and your lists help me out a lot, especially during these seasonal changes.  Thanks for doing all this work!

Thanks for the feedback. It's been fun playing with the frequency jigsaw puzzle!   :D

« on: November 02, 2013, 1112 UTC »
A long list of new frequencies noted over the past four days. The list has been broken up into three parts. Let me know if this has been of any interest to you guys. If so, I'll keep posting as more NFs are discovered.

73 and have a great weekend

Shortwave Broadcast / B13 New Frequencies
« on: October 30, 2013, 1132 UTC »
Many, many new frequencies noted since the start of B13. I'm getting quite a list together but it's way too long to include here. I'll put together the list of stations so far noted in a couple of days time on my blog at www.medxr.blogspot.com. But here's a small sample:

5930   ENGLAND.  VoV - Woofferton.  Vietnamese service to Eu s/on 2130, NF and only audible at s/on, gone by 2137, Oct 28.

5950   NEW ZEALAND.  RNZI - Rangitaiki. S/on 1300 with news, NF ex 6170 to Pacific, scheduled through to s/off 1700, Oct 28.

5955   AUSTRIA.  VoV - Moosbrunn. English to UK at 1816, into Vietnamese 1830, NF ex 9625 and one hour later for B13, fair on Oct 29.

6190   USA. KNLS - Anchor Pt. Surprised to hear this at 1637 in Russian under BBC-Meyerton with hymns and preaching. NF ex 9655 to Eastern Russia. Weak signal and no sign of China either! Oct 29.

9615 USA. KNLS - Anchor Pt. English on this NF ex 9655 for this time period. HFCC lists this as Mandarin, but apparently the station has other ideas! Would be a fair signal if not for severe QRM CNR 2 9620, Oct 30.

11770 SOUTH AFRICA. AWR - Meyerton. Preaching in the Masai service to EAf, NF ex 9600. Quagmire of a frequency due to PBS Xinjiang and some type of jamming noise. Both AWR and PBS s/off 1800 leaving just the jamming! Oct 29.

11785 UNITED ARAB EMIRATES. IBRA - Dhabayya. At 1751 with Afro style hymns in the Swahili service to EAf, NF ex 11875, nice signal to s/off 1800, Oct 29.

11820 GERMANY. VOA - Lampertheim. NF ex 11985 for Kurdish at 1747 and // 9655, Oct 29.



That's a pleasure, refmo. Glad you found it useful. I know it's Australia-centric (i.e. what's heard at my location), but it may be also helpful for others, too. There's been nearly 500 downloads since I published it several months ago! I'm planning to produce an update in 2014.

Clandestine Stations / Re: Radio Miraya FM 9940kHz *0300z 3/17/13

Might I say, respectfully, that I don't think MT know what they are talking about!  ;)

Yes, 11560 now. But as you saw from my article, for the new B13 transmission schedule there is a registration with HFCC as 9940 kHz 0300-0600. Once B13 gets underway, we'll be able to confirm if this is indeed the new freq.

Equipment / The Double Bazooka Antenna - A YouTube Review
« on: October 20, 2013, 0321 UTC »
Over the past few months, I have been experimenting with two new antennas: the 80 and 40 meter Double Bazookas. It's been a lot of fun trying out these and comparing them to my existing Par End Fed SWL antenna. AND.... I have been compiling a video that introduces this antenna design, looks at its construction and documents its results. I hope you enjoy the video…..and if you do, please share it with others!


73, Rob VK3BVW

I have compiled a new 9-page survey of Latin American broadcasters, as monitored here at Mount Evelyn, Victoria, AUS. It covers mainly domestic but also some international stations over the period between March and August this year. Also included are some tips on QSLing the Latins. The link for downloading is available at the MEDXR Blog. I hope you find it useful.


Best wishes, Rob VK3BVW

As I was researching material for an article I have written on Radio Miraya, I came across your HFU blog post of September 7. Could I respectfully point out that Radio Miraya is NOT a clandestine radio station. It has a well established network of 26 relays for its FM service throughout the Republic of South Sudan, as well as the shortwave relay of three hours of that service each day between 0300 and 0600 UTC. The station runs under the auspices of UNMISS - the United Nations Mission In South Sudan.

You may be interested in the article I have just published on Radio Miraya, which can be found at my blog - the Mount Evelyn DX Report (MEDXR):


Best 73,
