Deutsche Welle QSL cards, programming schedules and tote bag received for June 31 and August 2 1700-1800UTC reception reports with audio recordings of 15275kHz and 17740kHz via Issoudun, France To Africa.

A QSL Card, sticker and program scheduled received from DZRP Radyo Pilipinas for a May 21, 2016 reception report

However, the QSL card is for the wrong frequency, referencing a report I sent them from a year ago. I heard 9910kHz and 1210kHz here in Alaska, not 15190kHz. The date and times are right though.

Audio of what I heard on 9901khz is here:

An audio recording of what I heard on 12120khz is here:

2 Radio Romania QSL cards and a station leaflet of info for reception reports to the French Service on 11900kHz and 11950kHz

Here's one piece of audio, 11950khz:

2 Radio Taiwan International QSL cards, a coaster and  a small pennant and a program schedule for May 22nd, 2016 11600kHz (English, beamed to Indoesia) and June 25, 2016 7445kHz (English, beamed to Southeast Asia) reception reports

I got two QSL cards from the English Department at The Voice of Iran.

They came one day apart and were for the same exact broadcast logging. One card had just the date, another card had the date and time but no frequency!

The next broadcast of The Classics Expirience with Paul Walker is going to be the biggest yet and IT HAPPENS TONIGHT!!

2 hours of rock n roll music with maybe a few country songs thrown in for good measure. The show is ALL about the music and providing something different on the shortwave bands, so all you'll get from the show is MUSIC. There will be NO rants, raves, personal opinions or political and religious rants. No commercials or sponsors either. I fund the broadcast out of my own pocket so I can pick whatever music I want and not have to answer to anyone but George D. Beagle!

Here's how the broadcast schedule looks

WRMI 7570kHz  Saturday August 27th 0400 to 0600UTC. Beaming at 315 degrees towards Vancouver. It should provide a good signal to the West Coast of the US and Canada and probably parts of the midwest and upper midwest along the way.

WRMI 11580kHz Friday August 26th 2100 UTC to 2300UTC., This signal target area is Eastern North America and Western Europe.

WINB 9265kHz Saturday August 27th 0330 to 0530UTC. This should provide good coverage into the Midwest, parts of southern Canada and into Mexico. It was also logged in parts of Europe as well. It was weakly heard in Australia and New Zeland during my last broadcast.

Channel 292 6070kHz Friday August 26th 2200 to 2400UTC. This should provide good coverage of central and parts of Western Europe.

There will be MFSK32 data and pictures during the broadcast.

For Sale / Wanted / Barter / WANTED: Lowe HF150E
« on: August 15, 2016, 2315 UTC »
I am in search of a Lowe HF150E/South Midlands Communications HF150E to buy. If it's a little dinged up or scratched on the case, I don't care as long as it's intact and works as designed without defects.

They are no longer made and I know most who have them don't want to give them up, but the people I know who have them don't want to let them go.

If you have one for sale at a reasonable price, please email me privately: walkerbroadcasting@gmail.com

Thanks,

Shortwave Broadcast / 977-kHz UN'ID
« on: August 15, 2016, 1941 UTC »
I had a station on 9770 kHz at 0858 UTC on August 15, 2016 with a fairly strong steady signal today playing back to back contemporary sounding music.  It faded out right near top of hour, one song starts, quickly stops and another one starts .... No liners or station ID.  Nothing was scheduled at the time. The closest, schedule-wise, was KBS World Radio but they don't play back to back music like this.  It sounded like it could've also been CRI but they would've had to be WAY off schedule.


Here is a recording of what I heard:

Shortwave Broadcast / More Rock & Roll Music On Shortwave!
« on: August 09, 2016, 1939 UTC »
Please read this whole post.


The next broadcast of The Classics Expierience with Paul Walker is going to be the biggest yet. It'll all take place in late August with 2 hours of rock n roll music with maybe a few country songs thrown in for good measure. The show is ALL about the music and providing something different on the shortwave bands, so all you'll get from the show is MUSIC. There will be NO rants, raves, personal opinions or political and religious rants. No commercials or sponsors either. I fund the broadcast out of my own pocket so I can pick whatever music I want and not have to answer to anyone but George D. Beagle!

WRMI 7570kHz  Saturday August 27th 0400 to 0600UTC. Beaming at 315 degrees towards Vancouver. It should provide a good signal to the West Coast of the US and Canada and probably parts of the midwest and upper midwest along the way.

WRMI 11580kHz Friday August 26th 2100 UTC to 2300UTC., This signal target area is Eastern North America and Western Europe.

WRMI 11530kHz Saturday August 27th, 0200UTC to 0400UTC targetting South America with maybe a little spill over to extreme Western Africa.

WINB 9265kHz Saturday August 27th 0330 to 0530UTC. This should provide good coverage into the Midwest, parts of southern Canada, into Mexico along with parts of Central & Southern Europe it seemed.. It was weakly heard in Australia and New Zealand during my last broadcast.

Channel 292 6070kHz Friday August 26th 2200 to 2400UTC. This should provide good coverage of central and parts of Western Europe.

Shortwave Services 15195khz via Armenia Saturday August 27th 1200 to 1400UTC. Beaming at 65 degrees towards Japan.

I am going to suspend my request for $ to cover postage and QSL costs. I've been so lax in sending out QSL cards, I haven't gotten around to any of them from previous broadcasts and have gotten a few nastygrams about it. I feel bad, so I won't ask for any money to cover costs this time around.

Contact information for reception reports:
Paul B. Walker, Jr.
PO Box 353
Galena, Alaska 99741-0353 USA

There may be MFSK32 data and pictures during the broadcast. I will announce during the broadcast if and when that happens.

I will likely move to EQSL's only for future broadcasts to lessen the costs and time involved in getting this whole shebang taken care of. I've never meant to be so lacking in replying to QSL requests/reception reports. I have a 40+ hour a week full time job and my own SW listening hobby. I've gone months without sending out reception reports for stuff I log/catch.. I keep my word, always. If I say I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it. No need to get nasty.. and if you have a problem with me, contact me directly instead of complain to others where I can't see or respond. I'm glad to address any issues you may have with me.

I do this show as a hobby, out of my own pocket (Would you like to help pay the $250+ i spend on airtime?) This next broadcast is going to close me closer to $500. If you don't like it, don't listen. 

The people who complain about my lack of sending out QSL cards will write to CRI, not send any money and complain that they don't offer printed paper qsl cards anymore.

I listen for my own listening and logging enjoyment.. and if I get a QSL card, great...do I send money? Yes, if they ask for it... i especially don't get upset about not getting a QSL card if I haven't sent any money.

When I come up with a good prize that can be used worldwide, I will have a contest on the show too.

PLEASE, accept my sincerest apologies for being so lacking in replying to some reception reports. I didn't realize people were so upset about it to use foul language in discussing their disgust of me.

Shortwave Broadcast / Shortwave Logs From Alaska!
« on: August 05, 2016, 0822 UTC »
A few good loggings, including a new to me 3560 Voice of Korea frequency bringing my logging to 29 different North Korea shortwave frequencies heard here. Also a pretty strong signal from The Voice of Mongolia and some other good ones, including Zanzibar on 11735 and Vivdh Bharati.

No JBA's (Just Barley Audible carriers) here. Real audio with loggable, verifiable signals:)

Location: Galena, Alaska, USA in the central part of the state, 300 miles west of Fairbanks, 300 miles east of Nome. Using a Tecsun PL880, 225 foot long wire and EmTech ZM2 antenna tuner!

2850kHz, 3250kHz & 3320kHz, The Voice of Korea via Pyongyang to North Korea and the Far East in Korean on August 2, 2016 from 1623 to 1627UTC. The tropical band signals of VoK are somewhat rare and kind of weak during the summer but much more regular and stronger in the winter. This time around, 2850kHz is the strongest with a woman singing in Korean. The signal is weak but easy to understand despite the noise.  3250kHz and 3320kHz both featured a man talking, 3250 had a song shortly after my recording began. 3560khz wasn't heard on this date, but it was heard back on July 23, 2016 at 1502UTC with a pretty weak signal, full of noise, yet music was definately heard above the buzzing!  2850kHz audio here: https://soundcloud.com/onairdjpaulwalker/vok-2850-august-2-2016-8-23-35. 3250kHz audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2Fzy7bm_3A 3320khz audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEB0Qx9bZLg. 3560kHz audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djJIa4JLWow (Walker-AK)

4885kHz, Echo of Hope to North Korea in Korean on July 28, 2016 at 1623UTC. Their other frequencies always seem to be jammed but I've not heard this Anti North Korean station have it's 4885khz signal jammed. It's a pretty good signal, clean, clear, fairly steady with only some light fading. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgZUOjZaQPE (Walker-AK)

5020kHz, Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation via Honiara to the Solomon Islands on August 1, 2016 at 0953UTC. The SIBC is here just about nightly and at least very poor levels. The signal on this night with local music is fair but with a good amount of fading and noise. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A67vQd04Uj0 (Walker-AK)

5857khz "HLL Seoul" on July 28, 2016 at 1634UTC.  A weather broadcasting station from Seoul, South Korea often with digital data but does have voice from time to time, I've heard both but never this clear. The voice isn't usually this clear or loud. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5eICMqMCaQ (Walker-AK)

7280khz, The Voice of Vietnam in Russian via Hanoi to Europe on July 26, 2016 at 1639UTC. A poor signal with lots of fading, static and noise and possibly some interference as well. A man was heard talking in Russian. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7nt1J0QGWQ (Walker-AK)

9390kHz, Radio Thailand World Service in English via Udon Thani on July 23, 2016 at 1955UTC. Radio Thailand is here from time to time and while it may be strong sometimes, it's usually a pretty fade-y signal. This signal would be on the high side of fair if it wasn't for all the noise and fading.  The recording starts off with what sounds like ad's for a business marketed to english speaking ex pats and tourists. A sign off message then airs but the carrier doesn't drop as far as I can tell before the german service starts at 2000UTC. Audio here: https://soundcloud.com/onairdjpaulwalker/radio-thailand-9390-july-23 (Walker-AK)

9420kHz, The Voice of Greece via Avlis to Europe. on August 1, 2016 at 2326UTC.  The Voice of Greece is not heard here too often and when it is, it's often a noise, static and fade-y ridden signal like this is with a woman talking, but about what, I don't know.  Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul6kf5cdvho (Walker-AK)

9635kHz, The Voice of Turkey in French via Emirler to Western Europe on July 23, 2016 at 2021UTC. The Voice of Turkey is pretty rare here, I can't recall it paying a visit very often. The is about as good as I can recall hearing them here Despite the extreme noise, It is still a steady signal with a musical selection, a man talking and then a musical selection before the carrier is turned off. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMXlIHiDl7U (Walker-AK)

9735khz, Radio Taiwan International in Japanese via Paochung/Baujong to Japan on July 31, 2016 at 2258UTC. A man in Japanese mentioning Tapei, a short musical selection plays before a few beep tones and a carrier being cut. The signal is pretty steady and strong with some light fading, but still a listenable signal. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K6NVvrriwY (Walker-AK)

9790khz, Radio Romania International in English via Tiganesti to the Far East. The english service broadcast with a lady talking about a contest with the giveaway being a CD. Details are given how to enter the contest. The signal was somewhat weak but there was a moderate amount of nosie with some fading on the channel. I detected the 9760kHz in english to Western Europe and I could hear audio, but nothing worthy of recording or logging it "officially". 9790khz audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGiD1OHVWKw (Walker-AK)

9870kHz, All India Radio Vividh Bharati Service in Hindi via Bangalore to South Asia on July 27, 2016 at 1700UTC. They are here just about everyday, sometimes at poor levels but usually at least fair. However, some days like this time, they are good to excellent with great audio, steady signal and no real noise or fading. I love hearing the music they play! Audio here: https://soundcloud.com/onairdjpaulwalker/air-9870-july-27-2016-8-59-1 (Walker-AK)

9997kHz LSB, RWM  Moscow Russia on July 27, 2016 at 1643UTC. Every source I've seen places them on 3 frequencies, including 9996khz. I swear each time I've heard them, it is clearer on LSB and 9997khz then 9996khz! They are a fairly regular visitor here, not every day, but at least weekly but usually, they are buried in the noise between slop from WWV/H and atmospheric crud. Well, this today the beep from RWM was very very much in the clear.  Audio here: https://soundcloud.com/onairdjpaulwalker/rwm-9997lsb-july-27-2016-8 (Walker-AK)

11540kHz, VOA Radio Ashna in Pastho via Udon Thani to Iran on August 2, 2016 at 1654UTC. A very weak signal, barely above the static and fading with a man talking in the Pashto language. Audio here: https://soundcloud.com/onairdjpaulwalker/voa-ashna-11540-in-pashto-to (Walker-AK)

11800kHz, Radio Romania International in Romanian via Tiganesti to the Middle East on July 27, 2016 at 1647UTC. The signal was fair with a moderate amount of fading and atmospheric noise. I heard a romanian language tune followed by a man then a woman talking. Later on, I heard what may have sounded like feature report of some kind, I don't think it was a news broadcast. Audio here: https://soundcloud.com/onairdjpaulwalker/rri-11800-july-27-2016-8-47-16 (Walker-AK)

11735kHz, Zanzibar Broadcasting Corporation in Swahili via Dole, Zanzibar on July 28 at 1659UTC. They are only 50KW and while some sites list them as non directional, they aren't A Directional curtain antenna has been spotted on google maps, but I don't know what their beam is. That being said, I can count on them being here daily. Somedays it's poor, some days it's fair and other days it's somewhat good like this. There are even days when it's near excellent with a clear, steady signal and good audio. In this clip, the audio sounds like a cross between being full of digital artifacts and some propagation issues. The audio is not as good as usual, but still pretty listenable with not much fading and little noise or interference. There was a song, followed by a little dead air then a station promotional announcement and another song. ZBC, when playing music, is an enjoyable listen! Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSvyT-Do1cE (Walker-AK)

11950kHz, Radio Romania International in French via Galbeni to Southern Europe on August 1, 2016 at 1640UTC. The signal was fair but with a moderate amount of fading. Thankfully, no interference or too much atmospheric noise. A woman talking in french, presumably reading the news. Audio is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PioNenuF358(Walker-AK)

12019kHZ, The Voice of Vietnam in Chinese(?) via Hanoi to Indonesia on July 31, 2016 at 2236UTC. I can usually hear the Voice of Vietnam shortwave broadcasts in multiple languages from their Vietnam based transmitter sites across very frequencies. This signal is fairly weak with some nooise and fading. It sounds like a news broadcast or feature report to me. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5GRlWGQbBg (Walker-AK)

12035kHz, Voice of Mongolia via Ulaanbatar with 180 degree beam south from Mongolia On August 1, 2016 at 0900UTC, I had the best signal ever from time. If it wasn't for all the atmospheric noise and fading present, the signal would've been an incredibly pleasant listen. During this time, I happened to catch the DX'ers mailbox program in which they read out a letter from me. However, this is the second time the July 4th broadcast has been replayed. Still great to get them so well here, usually they are weak and barely above the noise floor. My Wellbrook ALA1530LNP was used here instead of the 225 foot longwire. The loop provided noise reduction and nulling/directional capabilities that really helped out! Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqTox0j8P3k (Here's a tip when looking for VOM on 12035 and trying to log in: I think the carrier is turned on several minutes before the 0900UTC broadcast in english. The interval tune starts just a little before 0859UTC and I think the program runs the entire 30 minutes till 0930UTC, unlike what I think some sites suggest) (Walker-AK)

12060kHz, Radio Algerienne via Issoudun to West Africa in French on July 26, 2016 at 2038UTC. none of Radio Algerienne's signals are regular visitors and pretty weak as I recall, like this one with lots of noise and buzzing. Music and chat barely detectable above the noise floor.  Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pqdQKRrG0E (Walker-AK)

12095khz, BBC World SErvice in English to East Africa via Meyerton on July 23, 2016 at 1625UTC. A news broadcast in english, two men are discussing sports then a news anchor comes on to read the top stories. Audio here: https://soundcloud.com/onairdjpaulwalker/12095-bbc-english-to-east (Walker-AK)

13660khz, Radio Romania International in Romanian via Tiganesti to the Middle East on July 28, 2016 at 1655UTC. This was a GOOD signal with only a light amount of fading and very little noise.  There was a woman talking for a bit then a man came on and mentioned the name of the station. A song played and the carrier was cut mid song without their usual interval tune.  Audio is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WR7p0537mbc (Walker-AK)

15170kHz, Radio Romania International in Spanish via Tiganesti to South America on August 1st, 2016 at 2101UTC. This signal was pretty weak with only a light amount of fading but plenty of atmospheric noise. It was hard to understand the woman talking, but you could clear make out the RRI news sounder noise part of the way through my recording. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzYQ3l4iPWE (Walker-AK)

15205khz, BSKSA Holy Quran in Arabic via Ryadh on August 2, 2016 at 1704UTC. A fair to good signal but with a moderate amount of nosie and fading while a man chants. Audio here: https://soundcloud.com/onairdjpaulwalker/bsksa-holy-quran-15205-august (Walker-AK)

15235khz, Channel Africa in English via Meyerton to Western South Africa on August 2, 2016 at 1708UTC.  Channel Africa is somewhat of a regular visitor up here as of late when conditions are good. They broadcast an hour long news segment in French from 1600 to 1700UTC followed by an hour long english broadcast. The signal this time around is fair but there's alot of fading. The signal can be weak at times, but is usually steadier then this.  Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k0-lx8aLXM (Walker-AK)

15275kHz & 11740kHz, Deutsche Welle via Issoudun in French to Africa (17740kHz) and West Africa (15275kHz)on July 31, 2016 and August 2, 2016 bewteen 1700 and 1730UTC. 15275khz french service to Africa was heard on July 31 and August 1st. July 31st produced a fair to good signal with moderate fading but still very listenable. The August 1st broadcast proved a bit harder, it was weaker and with a fairly high amount of fading and noise.  The 17740khz was heard on July 31st and was fair but with LOTS of noise and fading which made it hard to understand. 15275khz audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNBfkK4-UT4 (July 31) and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhcZ6ZLLDP8 (August 2). 17740khz audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fdirw8RxKs (Walker-AK)

15400kHz, Radio Romania International in Spanish via Tiganesti to South America on August 1, 2016 at 2259UTC. There is a fair amount of noise in the signal and it's somewhat weak, but still fairly listenable. The signal starts off with the usual and easily identified interval signal followed the opening of the broadcast, introducing it in spanish and continuing on with the news. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzYQ3l4iPWE (Walker-AK)

15770kHz, DigiDX via WRMI Okeechobee, Florida on July 31, 2016 at 2149UTC. It is a very weak signal plagued with lots of noise and fading but I did get plenty of MFSK32 text to decode and a picture to come through on FLDigi. It wasn't error free, but it was pretty good considering what the signal sounded like. Audio is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFMxYTrGA6Q (Bring up FLDigi on your comptuer and play this video in the background, and you'll see, stuff DOES decode!) (Walker-AK)

Shortwave Broadcast / North Korea On Shortwave
« on: July 21, 2016, 2326 UTC »
I have logged 28 or 29 of North Korea's various shortwave signals from my location, many of them at very listenable levels. They are most listenable and strongest in the late night hours, but here is a short "band scan" of shortwave signals broadcasting from North Korea heard rural central Alaska on July 20, 2016 at 1654UTC while using a Tecsun PL880, 225 foot long wire and EmTech ZM2 Tuner

In the order in which they are seen in the video:
KCBS Pyongyang on 6100khz, 9665khz and 11680 in Korean, all targeting Korea.

The Voice of Korea in Russian on 9435khz targeting Europe, 11710khz targeting Latin America and 13760 targeting Europe

Utility / Russian Channel MArker 5835khz/10871khz
« on: July 17, 2016, 2237 UTC »
5835khz AM(July 15, 1621UTC, 10871.70khz USB (July 12 249UTC) & 10871.90KHZ USB(2052UTC). Russian Channel Marker. I'm not really sure where in Russia these come from or what their purpose is, as i am not very "up" on the utility type broadcasts on HF. The 5835khz beeping is pretty clear and evident, but it sounds like there's a little interference coming from somewhere or someone else. The signal from the 10871khz signals is pretty weak but the beeps do make it above the fading/noise,  5835khz audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEZMo5DziCI. 10871.70khz usb audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIhn7MIHMR4 and 10871.90khz USB audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ9BeqosLtc
