KLIV 1590  View Printable Version 
Monday, January 13 2020

HCDX
Legendary KLIV 1590 San Jose, CA isn't dead, it looks like it's going to
sputter back to life
KLIV will be getting an STA for 500 Watts from a wire antenna to be located
at 556 N. 16th Street, San Jose.. a residential neighborhood. One end will
be attached to a temporary portable tower, the other end is going to be
attached to a tree. This is to keep the license alive while a sale is in
the works to Pham Radio Communications which also owns KVVN 1430 Santa
Clarita, Ca.

6015 kHz. heard with three stations mixing together  View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 12 2020

HCDX
Hello and Greetings from Madagascar,

I noted underneath correspondence. I was aware of the interference.

So I plan to use 6005 kHz (10 kHz away) from tomorrow morning and see if this improves the situation.
According to band scans this should be a clear channel between 0330 and 0430 UTC in the horn of Africa.

I want to note that my reason to use 6015 kHz was to stay close to 6020 kHz, which I used in the B18 season.
However, since Tamazuj extended with half an hour extra starting A19, I could not use this anymore because or RRI from 0400 UTC onwards.
And at the start of the B19 season 6015 kHz was free to use with DOL with 50 kW in Swahili reported to be off air.

Considering the extreme low SSN I even consider to swap 6015 kHz and 7315 kHz between MDC and ISS. Not decided yet.

73’s de Rocus @ MDC

MADAGASCAR / HOLLAND / NETHERLANDS {R Tamazuj to South SUDAN}

the interference problem of R Tamazuj 6015 kHz in B-seasons
via MGLOB Talata Volonondry Madagascar relay facility
must be solved quite differently.

The guys here on the radio community should HEFTY complain direct to the
Dutch NGO Foundation frequency management organization to avoid such
co-channel clash at least in coming B-20 season from late October 2020.

This shortwave co-channel clash is a problem
because small domestic broadcaster send requests to ITU Geneve
with their 50 kW systems
are never included in the HFCC Conference database,
like for example Radio Habana Cuba, KCBS Pyongyang and similar ...

At least from the southern part of Africa, it is bad.

This morning (Jan 12) PBS Zinjiang was very poor, as usual. So poor that
I couldn't really tell when it went off air, but I would guess about
0257, unless that is when it finally faded out for good.

The other carrier(s) started at 0327, presumed R Tamazuj and/or
Zanzibar. Audio was very poor and did not sound like Zanzibar
programming, the music and songs sounded more African, so presumably
Radio Tamazuj from Madagascar. But there was a weak and continuous SAH,
and what I thought sounded like a Zanzibar jingle at 0342. Reception of
both stations was so poor they were both actually unreadable., I gave up
at 0353.

Like Ron, I feel sorry for Zanzibar, as this has been their patch for
years. This morning at least, it seems to me that PBS can't be blamed
for the lousy reception of Tamazuj and ZBC, but I can't be certain they
had already gone off air, their own reception was so bad earlier in the
day. Our local sunrise in Johannesburg was at 0327.
