Hi Mike,
Thanks for this interesting report. Glad to find someone
else regularly tuning into 5985.

Fortunately for me today, it did not affect my Monday
(1216-1229), reception of Myanmar Radio. Was enjoying
this weeks amusing dialogue by "Tom," on the "Say It In
English" program. Today he was talking on the phone to
his aunt Jennifer in Australia, who will soon be flying to
London, so he gets all her flight info; later talks to his boss
"Mr. Harris" about getting time off to pick up his aunt at the
airport; at 1230 usual singing station ID in vernacular with
three "kilohertz" mentioned. Very readable.

Re: RNZ - Glenn already predicted in DXLD 17-41: ". . .
recent HFCC registrations for *new 5980*, at 1300-1645 . . .
We can only assume these were wooden alternatives but
which still *might go into effect at any time *. . ."

Well after reporting yesterday how well I was receiving
Myanma Radio on 5985 from past 1500 UTC Radio
New Zealand decides to switch to 5980 during that
time giving Myanmar all sorts of problems this morning
October 23rd. With B17 schedules due to take effect
on October 28th we will see if RNZI stays on 5980 kHz.

My Ever Evolving Radio Listening Post  View Printable Version 
Monday, October 23 2017

My Shortwave listening set up continues to evolve and I thought some people
would like to see what I've been up to . Here's a collage look at pictures
I took today. (Click the imgur.com link nelow)


I have honestly had a few people ask what I do/use/how I do it, so I
thought I'd share this.

Let me say this then explain the set up with a few comments..Except for the
Wellbrook antenna amplifier/controller, all the antenna pieces were bought
on amazon. Then me, who is not a handy, patient, instruction reading type
of person put this all together in about 30 minutes the first day I got it.

Thanks to Colin Newell in Victoria, BC, Canada.. Thomas Witherspoon at
SWLing.com and Andy at Wellbrook for answering my incessant quesitons which
encouraged me and propelled me to put this all together.

Considering my location which is 50 feet from a major intersection in town
and just a few blocks from downtown, I do pretty darn good noise and
reception wise.. plus, this has certianly made a HUGE difference in my
reception over the average Wellbrook premade magnetic loop, the W6LVP and
Doxytronics loops.

Top left picture is my radio listening table. The radio is an Icom
IC-746Pro. Om top of it is a Zoom H1 handheld digital recorder with an
audio in port that gets audio from the ICOM's audio out jack.

The small box/speaking looking thing is an Tecsun ICR100 that functions as
an external speaker. On the brown chair is an EmTech ZM 2 antenna tuner. A
DXEngineering HF PreAmp(boosts the signal about 15db) is next to it on the

The DXEngineerinf HF Preamp isn't really needed as the Icom radio has it's
own 2 stage amplifier you can select manually, but I sometimes still use it
on weak signals. As well, the Icom also has it's own built in tuner you
manually activate but I still use the EmTech ZM2 antenna tuner as it still
does help a bit on tuning up a signal to be stronger and less fade-y.

The top right picture is my antenna. Single conductor 22 gauge electrical
hook up wire runs up the side of a speaker stand with 1 1/4 inch pvc pipe
jhammed on top for extra height. The antenna wire runs to the top of the
pvc pipe, and goes 25 feet out to another pvc pipe/speaker stand and down
the side..... then two ends of the wire meet in the middle.

The two ends of the wire connect to a Wellbrook ALA100LN antenna amplifier
and then to a antenna/radio interface box.

The bottom left picture is a close up view of my radio listening gear

The bottom right picture is a view of the 30 amp power supply the radio

The radio and power supply each weigh about 20 pounds. My gear is outside
and is not permanent. I must carry it out when I want to use it and back in
when I am done.

Radio Aparecida, 5035 kHz  View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 22 2017

Brazil, R. Aparecida, 5035 kHz, 2240 - 2302 Iâve been hearing a het here in the evenings for several weeks. This is the first time Iâve gotten any usable audio. Pop vocals and male and female announcers, some IDs, lots of mentions of Sao Paulo. At TOH, time beeps were a minute late. Parallel to 9630 and 11855. Fair signal initially, eventually fading to poor; good modulation, lots of splatter from Cuba on 5040. (Art Delibert, Maryland, 10/22/17)
