** AUSTRALIA [and non]. Tim Gaynor, Unique Radio, replies:

``Domestic HF Callsigns from Australia and Territories

Hi Glenn, I heard you mention during DXLD that HF Domestic Shortwave
stations in Australia (& territories), don't seem to have callsigns
in WRTH.

ACMA no longer issue callsigns for HF Domestic Shortwave stations in
Australia and territories and haven't for a while now. However, some
older licenses still do have callsigns.


If you enter either a full name or surname in there, you will find
licenses. If you enter - Hacko (Nickola) Radio DX, Gaynor (Timothy)
Unique Radio Australia, Tate (Peter) Station X, Schwartz (Kevin) Bay
Island Radio or Island FM 88 Shannon Shuttleworth (Also tech for K
Schwartz 5045 kHz)and Al Kirton 4KZ Innisfail QLD 5055 kHz. These are
the active ones or semi active.

You can also look up frequencies here in

ACMA main page: https://web.acma.gov.au/rrl/register_search.main_page

I hope that helps, Glenn, and I find this a valuable resource of
looking up licensed stations in Australia and its territories. Best
regards, Tim Gaynor. Unique Radio, Australia`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK,

** NORFOLK ISLAND. Re the 5045 tests of Radio DX:

``[WOR] That's all from Norfolk 5045 - at least for now
Apr 28 at 10:05 PM vk2dx <nick@clockmaker.com.au>

A quick report after two evenings of on-air tests. First, massive
thank you to all listeners who invested their time and tuned in. You
are a dedicated crowd, and I have an enormous respect for legends who
have been listening for 20, 40 or 70 years, and keep tuning the knob
to this day. Actually, the only reason even to attempt to get on air
from Norfolk is to serve you by 'giving you a chance to log a new
one'. Serving you is a pleasure and honour.

Another massive "thank you" goes to Glenn. There is nothing I can tell
you about Glenn and his devotion to radio that you already don't know.
To have him as an honorary station announcer was a thrill.

A word about Norfolk: my wife and I moved here in October last year.
We still travel to Sydney on regular basis, but Norfolk is now
(almost) a home. Life on island is complex and 'to get things done'
takes far more time and patience than on mainland. Transport of goods
to island is almost non existent, and people are still worried about
covid. Medical resources are very limited. Same apply to food. The
shops are empty and when fruit and vegetables are available, the
prices are simply unbelievable. A kilo of apples goes for $ 15;
potatoes are $ 10 and whole cabbage $ 50. Meat is reasonably affordable
thanks to local producers (there are two butchers on island). Wires,
tubing, timber, aluminium, steel, cement and building material appear
on island occasional - and disappears fast. We have brought with us so
far over 450 kg of various radio equipment and every piece was hand
carried between two of us. Internet is painfully slow and even local
phone calls are $ 1 per minute (and no one would dare to call overseas
on land line or mobile!).

The relationship between local population and Australian Government is
complex. There is a very strong desire for independence and self
governance. Clearly, as a newcomer I am trying to see both sides of
the story from unbiased standpoint, but there is no clean cut nor fast
solution to a complex problem.

On the other hand, the island itself is a pure magic and living here
is simply 'worth the trouble'. Playing radios is amazing; at our
location we have no man made noise and bands are open to somewhere 24
hours per day. Made 40,000 QSOs already! Norfolk is one of the best
places in world to enjoy Amateur radio, fishing and astronomy, and
probably one of few where you can enjoy all three.

To broadcasting: a steep learning curve. Quite frankly, I am
disappointed that my signal was rather 'amateurish' - it barely made
it to West Coast of USA and Canada and even reports from New Zealand
were rather modest. There are two reasons for this rather
below-average performance: unreliable transmitter which failed to
perform as per specs. The overheating protection was kicking in too
often. A KW rated transmitter was barely producing 200-300W and most
of the TXing was at 100W.

The second 'problem' are propagation on 60m which at this time of year
favour north rather than north east. As many have reported, the second
night was significantly worse than the first. The good news is that
the 14m vertical worked as expected. This is a home made 14m radiator
with 16 radials, tuned to 5045 with SWR 1:1 so no issues there.

Where do we go from here? Clearly, an investment in a professional
grade transmitter is a must. My license allows me to run 1 KW and this
is what is the power level required to produce a decent signal. If you
have any suggestion to make or model, please do let me know. Of
course, this is not-for-profit radio setup so money is a factor, but I
am really looking for transmitter which will be turn on, and left
alone, capable of transmitting 24/7 if required.

I will be also reaching out to Tim who is on this mailing list with
request for mentoring. There is fair bit to learn about broadcasting -
and if I am to put a signal on air, then I do need to do it right and
in a professional way. I remain open to all suggestions, especially
from fellow members who have been through similar process themselves.

Also, my plan is to apply for secondary frequency as well. It is yet
to be seen how ACMA will deal with application, but in my opinion
co-sharing a channel is less then ideal solution.

Finally, the bit that probably interest you the most: when is the next
transmission? At this stage, assuming than new equipment could be
obtained and delivered relatively fast, the next 'proper' transmission
should be in September.

Best regards to all, thank you for your support and happy listening!

PS: yes, QSL cards will be printed and mailed out to all who have
submitted listening report. No money is required, just make sure I
have your mailing address. Unfortunately Norfolk Island stamps are no
longer in circulation, sorry. Nick Hacko VK9DX``

``The 28 April transmission from Radio DX commenced at 0552:20 and
concluded at 0738:34 UT. Frequency right on 5045.000. Island FM on the
other hand is on 5044.997 - its transmissions are heard later and, as
Bruce says, were on air at 1300 UT 28 April. I've noticed them
breaking from their continuous music format just after the hour to
carry a commercial or public service announcement plus station
identification. Regards, Bryan Clark, Mangawhai - NZ`` (all from WOR

``Michael C. Lewis, Alexander City, Alabama 35010. April 17, 2022

Dear Glenn,

I have been an on-and-off World of Radio listener since the late
1970’s when I was first introduced to international broadcasting via
shortwave at the age of 17 (by borrowing my grandmother’s shiny new GE
8-Band radio). In addition to quickly becoming addicted to the SWL
hobby, I obtained my Novice Ham license in 1980 and remain on the air
today (KA4JGP).

While spending lots of time and money on too many radios and
associated listening books over the years (like we all do in this
hobby), I regret that I have utterly neglected the most valuable and
thankfully still enduring radio resource, World of Radio!

This point finally hit home last night when I stumbled upon the
shortwave radio archive website and listened to a tape of RCI’s final
edition of the Shortwave Listener’s Digest with Ian McFarland. If it
was not poignant enough, I caught your last DX report on that show in
which you both exchanged hopes that you would meet up again.

It then registered with me that I should support your noble efforts.
I bumped into Ian at one of the Winter SWL Festivals in Kulpsville, PA
in the mid 90’s after he had left RCI. He was selling coffee mugs from
his show noting it began about same time I became an active SWL (June,
1977). I really miss Ian and his show and of course your regular
contributions to it. Fortunately, World of Radio is still with us.

That said, I am finally doing the right thing and offering a
contribution, and plan to do more in the future. I’m near retirement
from more than 30 years in local broadcasting and government work and
have more time to tune in. Thanks for staying with us SWL’s and long
life and good health to you. 73’s Mike Lewis``

planning for weeks but so far all in English --- until yesterday when
I did not check, but Paul Walker, AK, says it was not English on April

Despite my earlier findings, he thinx it`s via Vatican which follows
immediately in Arabic at 1530. BUT, today via that remote the two
stations axually *overlap* as VOMKM is still signing off, the English
announcement not starting until 1530 for maybe a semi-minute, then VR

nothing on the waterfall and not even 5000 WWVH.

carrier, in heavy splash from 5040 Cuba. The Cuban JBA leapfrog on
5055 is stronger than 5045, and not the other Aussie.

Salmaniw, BC; Don Moman, AB; Ed Kusalik, AB; Matt Francis, NSW; Chris
Mackerell, NZ; Tim Gaynor, NSW of Unique Radio who suggests a move to
