Uninteresting topic on ham radio day  View Printable Version 
Monday, April 18 2022

HCDX

This is a open post for discussion. I wait your responses !

Ham radio day is today and the newscaster in a nationwide radio station rememberedthose older days on 80s when many people ….used their mini transmitter to broadcastmusic in medium waves!
The most known example was the station from Polytechnics in Athens that helped forthe resistance against the Junta
Just to remind you that today there are more than 500 unofficial radiooperators in MW
I have listened to their program and immediately sent them a message to clarify that this is not a ham radio station butonly unofficial radio transmissions in medium waves enjoying to play music and .This clearly separates between these legal ham operators  who transmit in specified bands in shortwavesand higher bands as like ole times using the BC or walkie talkie

The journalist by the way apologized for this mistake, something that she didn’tknow

My question:
What happens in your area? Do the journalists know what is the purpose of a radioham?

Ham radio day 18/4: Newscaster mistake Replies strongly appreciated  View Printable Version 
Monday, April 18 2022

HCDX

Today is ham radio day and the newscasterin a nationwide radio station remembered those older days on 70s-80s the time…. the medium wave band was filled with numerous home built unofficial radiostations airing music!

She is surely wrong. I sent her a message toshow the ham/radiocaster difference . She apologized saying she didnt know thedifference

 

My question:
Do you know the difference between a music radio caster and ham radio?
What happens in your city? Did any radio station in your area mentioned thisinternational day ? Did they know the purpose of amateur radio?

Replies strongly appreciated

HCDX


some comments included also by wb df5sx,
via RUSdx #1181 via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews April 17)

see below, see 4 x Mediumwave gear locations,
LW 234 and MW 549 kHz feeder/antenna gear scrapped in past 30 years now:


MOLDOVA Today April the 6th, Trans World Radio (prgrs in Ukrainian
language, Russian, Roma / Gipsy & Belarussian) was not on the air, re-
placed by prgr in Russian of Radio Rossii or as they say "Radio Rassii" on
MW 999 KHz at 1730-1935 UT. The prgrs in Roma, Hungarian, Romanian etc at
1830-2130 on 1548 kHz are still on the air.

Vesti Radio on 1413 kHz is with reduced power (earlier with 1000 kW).
BTW 10-20 years ago, Radio Rossii was named as "Radio of Yelzin" and
now Vesti as "Radio of Putin".

MOLDOVA/RUSSIA/UKRAINE For many years TWR in Ukrainian, Russian, Roma /
Gipsy & Belorusian was on the air on MW 999 KHz via Radioteletsentr (PRTC)
transmitter Grigoriopol Maiac site [Pridnestrovie break away], replaces
TWR with Radio Rossii and from yesterday [April 5] their bc time 1730-1935
UT was replaced by progr of Radio Rossii(Rassii) in Russian.

On April the 5th, four transmitters of Ukrainian Radio were on the air on
MW 657, 873, 1278 & 1404 kHz.
(Rumen Pankov-BUL, direct and via wor hcdx April 6)

MOLDOVA April 10, 2022. PMR frequencies: 999 kHz is definitely strongest
here, no more trace of Rai IT which used to be present here before. also
stronger than TWR has been in the past! probably 1000 kW for this?!

1413 kHz comes next, strong and clear most of the time but gets swamped
out by 500 watts UK station at certain point, presumed 500 kW from a di-
rectional system twrds east.

621 kHz only on air during the early morning hours with vy. weak and vy.
directional signal.

Checked the whole evening and no trace of TWR here. only Spain (10 kW)
heard! "TWR Ukrainian & Russian & Belarusian 1730-1935 UT? listed for 621
kHz but no single sign of this today. Forgot to check 1548 today but I'll
do tomorrow. Just a reminder: 621 kHz is only active on weekdays (Mon-Fri)
with the "Radio 1plus" oldie music in russian language, never heard on Sat
or Sun. Guess this is the old x-mitter.

Moldova 18:30 UTC 20:30 CEST on Sunday 10 April:
1548 kHz with TWR (interval signal heard) is audible in the clear.
Balkan style music, later preacher. UK Gold in the background (playing
Nutbush city). Not listed for this time.

621 kHz does not carry any signal at all !
[621 kHz is NOT on air Sat/Sun / Ed]

999 kHz is by far the strongest signal. 1413 and 1548 kHz might originate
from same antenna system {no, wb}. Slight detoriation on both.

MDA "Tsekh" transmitter site #3. ex LW 234 kHz, exMW 549 and 1467 kHz.

"Radio 1+" / "Radio PMR" - April 11, 2022
I did run a check this (very early) morning.
04:39 CEST / 02:39 UTC - 4x test tone on MW 621 kHz.
04:55 CEST / 02:55 UTC - start of the program
05:12 CEST / 03:12 UTC - clear jingle ID heard "Radio 1 Plus"
05:30 CEST / 03:30 UTC - another jingle aired "Radio 1 Plus"
The signal was there at least until 06:20 CEST, then slowly fading out.
No trace of TWR. Much weaker then it used to be 3 years ago.
The start up procedure is always the same:

PRIDNESTROVIE (TRANSNISTRIUM) / MOLDOVA
===========================

999 kHz. Retransmission of Radio Russii.
-
WRTH gives information about 500 kW at 999 kHz, also at 1413 kHz.
In my evenings, signals pass with the same level at both frequencies.
I think a twofold difference in power would be more noticeable.
(Dmitriy N.P. - "Radio reception" / Telegram)
-
On the radio scanner, the participant Griffon (he works at the r / center,
as I understand it) says about 1000 kW at 999 kHz.

It seems that TWR is on 621:
https://www.mwlist.org/mwlist_quick_and_easy.php?area=1&kHz=621
Rather interesting is that the maps link points to the directional antenna
(maybe the type заря). The link from 1548 also points there.Does anybody
know which is being used?
Marco (2022-04-08)

Moldova
April 8, 2022
I have recorded 621 kHz [PMR] from 2 until 9 AM last two nights to monitor
just in case there would be changes, Radio 1 Plus was audible with old
soviet schlager music and clear ID in the early morning. Very low audio and
short digital drop outs. however, NO trace of TWRs program on this frequency
before or after. Not even the very destinctive interval signal was heard
there.
Obviously using VERY directional antenna pattern towards East – or they were
just not on. Power of 621 is quite less then 1413/999. And feeder signal of
Radio 1 Plus certainly via webstream.
Robert, Germany (2022-04-08)

Moldova
April 8, 2022
According to the post from Robert, it seems that 621 comes from the
directional MW antenna (заря).
Does 1548 also come from that?
If it is a directional signal, it might come from the 4 mast ARRT array
(квадрат). These are quite interesting. 47.283198611248174,
29.4288938649112
Look at the feeder lines, they go further than the antenna. I don’t know the
reason for that yet. Radioens reports that Vesti FM (вести фм) 1413 kHz uses
this 4 mast ARRT directional antenna. mwlist points to an non-directional
mast without a ARRT cage antenna.
Marco (2022-04-08)

Moldova
April 9, 2022
The frequency 621 KHz was the suggestion of Grigoriopol to exchange/replace
999, but now at 18.15 h UTC on 621 are usual Arab/Iran and not TWR. TWR on
999 used 500 KW, but now 1413 is 1000 and 999 with just 500 KW, so for TWR
is only 150 KW used by Radio 1 from Tiraspol will be ?
Rumen Pankov to MWlist iog (2022-04-08)

April 9, 2022
There are rumors that 999 from Grigoriopol uses 1 Megawatt.

License for Vesti FM and Radio Rossii. There are rumors that both stations
do not have a license:
https://vcfm.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1416&p=157700#p157700
I don’t know about the laws n Russia nor Moldavia according to that.
But I remember that I read that people wrote letters to Vesti FM and they
wondered about that because it was unofficial that they use 1413 and didn’t
announce that.
Marco (2022-04-09)

Moldova
April 9, 2022
621 TWR was informed that their broadcast will be 1 h later, from 18.30 h
UTC( not as in A21, A20 etc when was from 17.30 h).

to the info from TWR they go on short waves.
