Latest Shortwave News:

IBB Iranawila transmitting site closed
Radio Publique Africaine clandestine station starts broadcasts
Radio Republik Indonesia to increase power of broadcasts
VOA Burmese correction

IBB Iranawila transmitting site closed

The IBB transmitter site in Iranawila, Sri Lanka has been closed down as of the 6th of June 2016. The site which only opened in 1999 was used to broadcast Radio Liberty, Radio Free Asia, VOA,
Radio Mashaal and Radio Farda for around 47 hours of programming per day in the A16 season.

The reason for the closure is the cost to run the station and the fact that 1/4 of a million bolts on the antenna systems need to be replaced. The latest annual report from BBG/IBB suggested that
the Kuwait transmitter site would be expanded at the expense of other sites due to the low cost of electricity in the Arab state.

Glenn Hauser from DX Listening Digest and World of Radio who provided this news also has mentioned that a rumour is that one of the two IBB sites in Germany will also close this year - either Biblis
or Lampertheim.

Transmissions from Iranawila have be moved to other IBB stations in Thailand, Germany, Kuwait, the Philippines and the Northern Mariana Islands. Some transmissions have also been moved to
Woofferton, UK and Armenia, presumably via Babcock.  


Radio Publique Africaine clandestine station starts broadcasts

A clandestine station aimed at Burundi broadcasting in local languages and French has started daily from 1800-1900UTC on 15480kHz. Radio Publique Africaine was previously broadcast on FM in the
country but was closed down in the wake of an attempted coup in May 2015.

The broadcast is from the Issoudun transmitter in France.

Radio Republik Indonesia to increase power of broadcasts

Radio Republik Indonesia will increase transmitter power of its stations located in remote and border areas. According to the RRI director of new technologies and media this is to strengthen
nationalism. The German service of Voice of Indonesia reported that RRI will start by increasing the power of one station in West-Kalimantan province. From 5kW to 10kW in 2017.  This could be
RRI Palangkaraya which broadcasts on 3325kHz.

VOA Burmese correction

Last week DigiDX had a news story about VOA Burmese reducing hours on shortwave, however thanks to Kim Andrew Elliott it has been clarified that this story is not correct and was assumed due
to another false story about VOA Bangla re-starting on shortwave. VOA Burmese continues on its normal A16 schedule and VOA Bangla in the Bengali language will still only be on 1575kHz MW from
Thailand.

Upcoming relays and special broadcasts:

Alaska based SWL Paul Walker has a repeat of his latest Classic Experience broadcast via Shortwave Service in Germany this week. The  two hour broadcast also features some MFSK32 text (in the
2nd half hour of the broadcast) and an image (in the final half hour).

The schedule is as follows:

6005kHz Friday June 24th 1800-2000
3985kHz Saturday June 25th  0000-0200

Reception reports are only accepted by regular postal mail and $2 is appreciated to cover the costs of the QSL cards and return postage:

We conclude this broadcast with this weeks E-QSL card, sent as an MFSK32 image. The background image is the VOA Iranawila transmitter site.  Sorry for the issue on the 15770kHz broadcast via
WRMI which went off
air after 6 minutes due to a power cut in Okeechobee, Florida.  The image is sent first as a PNG file (89.7KB) and then as a JPEG file (39.9KB). This follows up on Merkouris from Greeces comments
regarding the larger
size of images when the decode has more errors in it.  

Merkouris also looked at the Olvia 4-125 text broadcast on the 0530/1830 transmissions on Channel 292 and observed:

The Olivia mode, which was centered at 1500 Hz, could also be decoded with the center frequency set anywhere between 1351 Hz and 1647 Hz! Please see the second attachment showing
again 3 running
instances of fldigi. A closer look at the screenshot reveals that fldigi reports the frequency offset at the bottom of each window: f/o +0.0 Hz when the decoder is centered at 1500 Hz and f/o
+125 Hz or -125 Hz for
the other two center frequencies. While the reported by fldigi frequency offsets are not very accurate, it seems that the software can decode the Olivia 4-125 mode even though the decoder's
center frequency is
not set on the spot. In fact, the center frequency can be set to the actual frequency plus/minus 145 Hz approximately.

DigiDX will carry out more tests in Olivia 4-125 and other modes in the coming episodes, including some on WRMI transmissions.

Equipment / Grounding coax braid on a folded dipole antenna?
« on: June 11, 2016, 1525 UTC »
....is it necessary? My receiver is grounded, about 6' from ground rod, and coax is connected to
the receiver by a PL259 connecter. Isn't the braid already grounded by the receiver?
This is just a little confusing with a folded dipole. Isn't  the center conductor and the
braid in continuity within the antenna? Seems if the braid was grounded you would lose
some signal to ground with a folded dipole. I'm having no noise or signal problems with
my folded dipole, just trying to understand the theory. I hope this makes sense!
 
Thanks for any input.
