About SIO 222 reception improving slightly as the 1400 progresses (writing this at 1448z). Mostly Arabic music with OM vocals, occasional OM DJ speaking between songs.

They pound in here around 03-04 utc most nights

Recently only Peruvian into PA has been 4820 R Senda Cristiana but this morning Radio Tarma is pretty strong with only that weird swooping radar (?) noise. This is a nicer local reception for me because it's one of the historical ones while the other one wasn't around 40 years ago when I was really into this.  Of course, there were as many as 100 other Peruvians at that time but I prefer not to think about it, too depressing!

I've heard Radio Tarma up here in Alaska several times right around 0000UTC in the middle of winter. Soemtimes its been very good, despite getting the piss slapped outta it by CODAR.

Heres some audio.. it gets real good after 5 minutes in

Hi Paul- I meant that radar was competing with the actual Radio Tarma signal :)

Ah ok, I know what a great log that would be from State College, so I didn't want you thinking you had something you didn't

By the way, I lived in Ridgway PA for 4 years, just 90 minutes north of you... did the Afternoon drive show at 97.5 The Hound WDDH

That swooping radar noise isnt radio tarma..its coastal ocean dynamics application radar.

Shortwave Broadcast / Re: Reactivated Ethiopia 6090khz?
« on: February 22, 2024, 0354 UTC »
This past Saturday, I spotted an unknown 6090khz.. but after 3 days of listening, Im pretty sure i determined thats Amhara State Radio. Something I've NEVER heard, EVER.

Well, tonight, I spotted someone on 6110. I think ive heard them before a few times, but zero modulation.

Tonight, I have a good signal AND audio.. and it's Radio Fana ...very african continent sounding music and speech that seems to be the same language as i heard on 6090.. different programming, but the same language as both are in east africa.  amharic.

Shortwave Broadcast / Reactivated Ethiopia 6090khz?
« on: February 20, 2024, 0455 UTC »
I think Amhara State Radio in Ethiopia has reactivated/refurbished/repaired their 6090 khz transmitter. I absolutely scan the lower broadcast bands, 5800 to 6200 nightly here and havent heard even a carrier until this past Saturday.


My email to a  few friends on Saturday night

They’re listed with a 0356UTC sign on, I’ve never heard them.

You’d expect the transmitters sites there to be pretty ramshackle

Well today about 0330 I had music that was very decidedly African continent sounding. Just a long ass instrumental…. Signal was acutually pretty good.  Modulation wasn’t great but it was better than Iran, Cuba and Cairo.

The only Possible thing I heard would be Amhara state radio… but this sounded quality wise, too good to be them, but based on the music, it had to be them… I think


Notes from email on Mon Feb 19th

Almost positive this is Ethiopia now.

Heard music about 0305 tonight but it was the same long instrumental tune ….heard it fade out and start again.    Then around 0352 or so a guy talked…. Heard actual music with singing after him, then about 0401 a lady with what sounded like news.

Voice wasn’t as well modulated as music … signal peaked about 0330 for me and started getting worse by 0346

Going on right now as a test while they work on some modulation stuff and do tests with new gear. No idea how long this will last.

Just above noise floor with fades - the odd peak is good, better closer to sunset. English service.
http://mt-shortwave.blogspot.com/2024/01/ksko-to-broadcast-on-shortwave-for-one.html

2136 Lengthy conversation by OM, only can pick out a few words
2138 Music
2145 "Blackhorse and the Cherry Tree" KT Tunstall (better as we approach sunset, 2159 utc)
2147 OM talking
2149 "25 or 6 to 4" Chicago
2153 "Mountain of Love" Johnny Rivers
2155 "Up, Up, and Away" The 5th Dimension
2158 "98.6" Keith

Hi, I'm that OM that was talking.  The 2136 chat started about 4 minutes earlier and was our weather forecast.. and at 2147, thats our messages segment, the community bulletin board of the airwaves

We're on 5900 every friday 2100-2200

Fair reception - choppy, fades. Chinese service

2350 YL at length in Chinese
2357 OM talking with YL

On a side note at 1930 utc today on 9620, there was an English ID followed by 10 minutes of news in English before becoming French service.

Thats listed on Eibi, ive heard english on there at 2000 i think, in the middle of french.,.. and then they go right back to french.

theres never anything slight about Cairo.... as in its never slight over modulation or slight under modulation or slight distortion.. its always extreme
