Hello Kai Ludwig & others,
Info from AWR that Moosbrunn Tx was transmitting their program at 0200-0300
wrongly on 7430 instead of 7340 on the last 2 days! Hope that it will be
rectified tomorrow.

This transmission used to follow BBC Afghanistan 0030-0200 on 5930 (winter
frequency). Not so anymore, HFCC shows that this frequency is now run by
Vatican Radio and, apparently, Encompass has taken out anything else from
Moosbrunn as well.

Is this turns out to be a permanent cancellation it would mean that
Moosbrunn is now on air only between 0400 and 2100, if nothing else is
missing, too. Whatever the reasons may be – already for many years no
engineer was babysitting overnight there anymore, so it's not this kind of

At present quite a lot of gossip surrounds the Moosbrunn station, as in part
also discussed here. One rumour is that the Telefunken transmitters will no
longer be used after the end of this year and the operation be limited to
the two 100 kW Thomcast transmitters, installed in 2001 to replace old 60s
vintage gear. However, the AWR schedule, as issued just two weeks ago, shows
that the 300 kW slots continue to be booked until March.

Thus the source of the rumour should be asked if it knows the contracts
between AWR and ORS. If not a bit of restraint would not hurt, and
concentrating on confirmed facts, including of course monitoring
observations like this one.
