...sleeping in bed with CNR13 !!! (pictypo&adds )  View Printable Version 
Sunday, November 20 2022



As you can see in the photo and you surelyknow the correct freq of CNR13 is 9420


There fore the story is written this way:

9420 at 1330 with a long political program on CNR13 mentioning Chinese Europeanrelations [Zhongguo Europa mentioned  ] witha  more than 10 minutes  talk then referred to Nigerian Chineserelations  . China was also mentioned as “Hǝlk” whle theregion was pronounced as ‘Sinzang’ continued with various other talks that bypassthe ToH at 1400. In th meantime  CNR17 on9630 aired some operas with short song identifications

I was continuing to listen to the talks onCNR 13 when  finally was sleeping until1530 when the Chinese program was aired They were Identified as  “Yīshī Guangbo Jiemu”.  

Signal was nearly steady and clear in the mosttime  at 1330 with minimal fading whileat 1530 QSB was deeper and medium-fast…

This is one f the very few stations that transmitcontinuously in shortwave with limited sign off times!  20/11/22

[ A true story. DXing sometimes helps for   sleeping. Reception  system as in the attachedphoto https://app.box.com/s/vy42lojguymlyoywa0er9j44a6wpjtkx ]


to add: (1)this station is on of my beacons in shortwaves with nearly alwaysgood signal.
(2) the Antenna part shown is a bundle by 11+ 15 m with a balun and connects intothe SDR. Alternatively there is a wire-wounded carton cylinder that covers the radio’santenna .   The wires ends are connected into the doubleantenna system.

9395 kHz 02.30-03.00 UT WRMI AWR Wavescan with 1985 year interview by Jonathan Marks and Victor Goonetilleke 4S7VK on R Neth  View Printable Version 
Sunday, November 20 2022


Surprise, surprise, very very emotional memories came to my mind.

USA 9395 kHz WRMI Sun Nov 20 at 02.30 UT S=9+35dB powerhouse signal heard
in Alberta-CAN:

AWR Wavescan program. Old SWL memories of 1974 / 1975 came back into my
mind. On 9395 kHz I listened to today's AWR Wavescan program, with contain
of Jonathan Marks and Victor Goonetilleke interview recording for
Radio Netherlands Media Network DX px of 1985 year.

A decade earlier in 1975 I had visited Victor 4S7VK in Piliyandala / Mount
Lavinia beach on his wedding party with Niromi and also exchanged DX hobby
information about the Philips(?) 10x100 kW and 100 kW transmitter units
of SLBC Colombo in Ekala site and small 35 kW Collins unit of Voice of
America tx unit at the Ceylon island.

Victor's voice in the interview was also as clear and present as I met
him 48 years ago and could later accompany him on some of his European
trips to Basel, Vatican, Salzburg, Dusseldorf, Hilversum and DSWCI
club conventions in Denmark.

9395even kHz WRMI relay of Adrian's AWR Wavescan hobby program noted
22 kHz broad wideband audio at 02.47 UT, Jonathan/Victor interview of 1985
Tamil war conflict in 1985, bigger Tamil audience content: Talk on
Tamil, Sinhala, Hindi, Urdu different language family history.

Dutch colonial era history on Ceylon island centuries back.

SLBC studio move in WW II in 1941 to avoid the Japanese power.
Jonathan's e-mail address given at 02.55 UT, then followed French
Carribean Martinique music piece played in AWR Wavescan program end.

Not bad prop condition this Saturday Nov 19 in 19, 16, and 13 meterband
at 16.40 to 17.35 UT, checked in Edmonton-Alb-CAN, Greece, Hungary and
Doha Qatar SDRs remotedly:

21630even ASC - aligned against new time signal standard 20.000 MHz fq
of WWV Fort Collins in Colorado state USA.

Live time 'Sports World' program report on BBC London En WS via 6x relays
at 16 - 18 UT via ASC and WOF ENC relays
- likely originate from Canberra AUS mentioned ?
- S=9+25dB at 16.40 UT on Sat Nov 19.

17640 kHz BBC En via ASC,

15359.878 kHz much odd fq, - surprise, surprise AWR Swahili service
