HCJB Technology Center to Host Special Event for Amateur Radio Operators

(Dec. 9, 2011 - by Harold Goerzen) Amateur radio operators who listened to shortwave broadcasts from Radio Station HCJB, the Voice of the Andes, in Quito, Ecuador, will have an opportunity to make contact with the mission during a special weeklong event beginning Saturday, Dec. 10.
“The purpose of this special event is to reconnect with countless thousands of shortwave radio enthusiasts who listened to those international broadcasts,” said David Russell, director of the HCJB Global Technology Center in Elkhart, Ind., that will host the event. “We have people lined up to operate the station that has been given the special call sign of W9H.”

Many amateur radio enthusiasts worldwide attribute their interest in the hobby to an enjoyable experience they had of tuning in to distant broadcasts from Radio Station HCJB’s shortwave transmission facility in Ecuador that ended broadcasts in November 2009 after 58 years.

“The special event ham radio station aims to spread goodwill among this group and to inform them of the existence of the Technology Center,” added Russell. “It’s appropriate that we do this on the eve of major milestones in the life of our organization—the 80th anniversary of HCJB’s initial broadcasts and the 25th anniversary of the mission’s technical services arm, the HCJB Global Technology Center.”

Participants will receive a special QSL (listener confirmation) card and brochure. For more information, visit http://www.arrl.org/Events/view/37794

This is the seventh QSL card commemorating 2011 as RFA’s 15th anniversary.
Ms. Libby Liu has been the president of Radio Free Asia since 2005. As president,
Ms. Liu provides strategic and operational direction to meet RFA’s mission of
providing balanced, objective news to listeners in East Asian countries where
such news is unavailable.
RFA’s first broadcast was in Mandarin Chinese on September 29, 1996 at 2100
UTC. Acting as a substitute for indigenous free media, RFA concentrates its
coverage on events occurring in and/or affecting the countries to which we
broadcast.

http://www.southgatearc.org/news/december2011/russian_woodpecker.htm
More on the Russian OTHR. I thought I'd been to some interesting radio places, until Mike
Barraclough pointed me in the direction of this video made in the Ukraine, the former home
of the Russian over-the-horizon radar system that plagued shortwave reception in the 1980's.
It was nicknamed the Woodpecker, which explains the jingle at the end of the video. The
giant curtain is still there, although because it is so close to the old Chernobyl nuclear power
station its within the exclusion zone.Standard rig : ICOM R75 / 2x16 V / m@h40 heads

Russia’s radio station, Voice of Russia, which airs in important capital cities and centers around the world has begun broadcasting from its newly opened office in ?stanbul.

The station, formerly named Moscow Radio during the Soviet Union, has been spreading Russia’s voice to whole world. The radio’s name was changed to Voice of Russia, when it was restructured following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The head of the radio station, Andrei Bystritskiy, mentioned in an interview with the Cihan news agency that the concept behind broadcasting had been mainly ideological during the Soviet Union, but people were no longer interested in ideologies. Bystritskiy came to ?stanbul to introduce Voice of Russia’s ?stanbul branch office and showed the radio station’s programming office located in the Güne?li district to the journalists at a press conference held at the radio station’s office.
Among the attendants at the press meeting were employees from the radio station and Dmitry Peskov, the press consultant of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
Answering questions posed by Cihan at the branch office, Bystritskiy stated that broadcasting in the Turkish language will be done in ?stanbul, while other programs will be broadcast from Russia. Bystritskiy noted that their radio broadcasts in Turkish are to be carried out in collaboration with their business partners in ?stanbul.
In response to a question on the state of affairs between Turkey and the Soviet Union during the Cold War, Bystritskiy responded, “Russia was part of a group, the Warsaw Pact, during the Cold War. On the other hand, Turkey was a member of NATO back then. Today, no hostility exists between Turkey and Russia. Both countries are very successful as partners and allies; they do collaborative business. They have collaborative economic projects. There is no serious opposition between the countries. Therefore, all this has paved the way for the radio station to broadcast in Turkish.”
As for the target audience of the radio station, he said, Voice of Russia aims to address the elites, influential people and the people in charge of making crucial decisions. “Our goal is to reach a very broad audience. However, the qualities of our main target audience vary according to the situation of countries and their regions. Our target audience consists of elites, influential people, decision makers and people who care about what is going on around them. However, that is a specific statement. In general, we aim to access a wide group of people. That is what we consider when doing our broadcasts. We consider everyone from different educational backgrounds, age groups, with different interests and occupations. In Turkey, we want educated and sensible people who care about what is going on around them to be among our audience,” Bystritskiy said.
To the question of whether there will be programs targeting Muslims and Christians living in Turkey, he responded: “Our radio station is not based on religion. However, information and news regarding religions are also addressed in our broadcasts.”
Bystritskiy pointed out that the radio stations’ Russia office covered issues regarding Muslims residing in Russia, and added that they could cover such issues in Turkey as well. “There are many Muslim citizens living in Russia. Therefore, we consider them with regards to our broadcasts and radio programs in Russia. Of course, in our Turkey office there will be similar programs related to the Muslim community. However, I would like to point out that our radio station is not a religious one. We only aim to inform people. For instance, we will cover information and news regarding different religions pertaining to different countries. However, supporting any kind of religious group, whether they are the Christians residing in Turkey or any other group, will not be what our programs will be about,” Bystritskiy asserted

Voice of Russia is on air seven days a week on FM 101.4, which Radio Kuzey also uses. Broadcasts start at 3.00 p.m. and end at 4.10 p.m. The broadcast stream consists of daily commentary on events in Russia and around the world, a Russian language course and news programs.
The Russian station is on air in critical regions such as Washington, New York, London, New Delhi, Baghdad and Kabul. The radio station aims to improve the content of the Turkish broadcasts and will also start playing music.

Voice of Russia, has been preparing programs aimed at foreign countries since Oct. 29, 1929. It was previously called Moscow Radio; however, its name changed to Voice of Russia following the fall dissolution of the Soviet Union.

The government covers all expenses of the station. The station’s audience exceeds 100 million.

VOA Croatian Service final broadcast
Washington, D.C. — November 23, 2011 — Voice of America’s Croatian Service signs off for the last time Wednesday, after 19 years of broadcast history that began during the bloody breakup of the former Yugoslavia, and ends with Croatia’s emergence as a democratic member of the European community.
VOA Director David Ensor called the service “a model of journalistic integrity that provided the people of Croatia with fair and impartial news during the dark days of civil war in the Balkans.” Ensor commended the service, which he said, “served as a vital source of independent reporting and insight into American policy.”
Voice of America established its Croatian Language Service on February 20, 1992, a time when the most brutal war since World War II was raging in the Balkans.

Spun off from the former Yugoslav Service which had been broadcasting to the area since 1943, VOA Croatian broadcasts began on radio, but were quickly expanded into television. The service was one of VOA’s first to establish an online presence.
VOA Croatian’s five-minute TV NewsFlashwas broadcast daily on eight affiliate stations and focused on American news of relevance to Croatian audiences, including business, science, American culture, and politics. The popular Breakfast Show, a roundup of US, Croatian and world news, aired on radio for 19 years, without a single day of interruption. An evening radio show aired on shortwave and ten affiliate FM stations in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
In addition to news coverage, VOA Croatian served as a source of entertainment and cultural programming for more than a decade. Nearly 700 episodes of Saturday’s American Cultural Magazine were aired, with stories on leading entertainers, from blues guitar legend B.B. King, to Los Lobos, the Grammy-winning Los Angeles band that performed in Zagreb in 2010.
VOA Croatian Service Chief Zorz Crmaric called going off the air a “bittersweet moment” that comes as the country begins a new chapter in European integration. He noted Croatia is now a NATO member and is scheduled to join the European Union in 2013.

Posts: 42 ... due to the bad luck, the DRM exciter has stuck and the transmitter remained on carrier only, that's the worse start of a new proejcet i could imagine. But thanks for monitoring, we hope we will get it fixed for the next transmission.

Many thanks for monitoring folks, every time the beggining is difficult, but let's hope it will lead to positive results in the future.

DRM India discusses roll-out strategy at ABU GA
RnM Team 15 Nov 11 17:28 IST

MUMBAI: The DRM consortium organized a meeting in New Delhi recently, bringing together various stakeholders to discuss issues dealing with the roll-out of DRM Digital radio technology in India.
Senior representatives of more than 20 companies along with All India Radio's engineer-in-chief RK Jain attended the two-hour long meeting. Jain, explained at length the current status of DRM transmitter procurement and installation process. Among other things, the importance of marketing and increasing awareness about digital change was highlighted. The great need for good, inexpensive DRM receivers was also emphasized to the receiver manufacturers and distributors present at the table.
At the 48th General Assembly of the Asia Pacific Broadcasting Corporation (ABU) issues surrounding DRM around the world were also discussed. The meeting brought together ABU participants from countries like India, China, Turkey, Germany and DRM Consortium members representing transmitter manufacturers, broadcasters and, for the first time, DRM receiver manufacturers.

Representatives of All India Radio, currently in the process of a DRM roll-out, gave their vision - a mixture of simulcast, new content and new additional information to accompany audio.
AIR has increased its DRM SW transmission by 8.25 hours to a total of approximately 16 hours a day. AIR first started Digital Radio Transmission from Delhi in Short-Wave band by using DRM Technology on 16th January, 2009 with a target coverage area of the UK and West Europe. Its Vividh Bharti service on DRM (in NVIS mode) has an approx coverage area of 800 Kms. With the increase in transmission time, more language services have now been added to the External services transmission.

Moderated by the DRM chairperson Ruxandra Obreja and stimulated by the ABU TC director Sharad Sadhu, the last minutes of the workshop were devoted to the thorny issue of content. Besides taking part in the various sessions (where updates on DRM activity around the globe and the DRM+ trial in the UK were given), DRM also displayed new receivers.
Other DRM member companies attending ABU were: Fraunhofer IIS, RFmondial, Nautel, Thomson, Transradio, Analog Devices, BBC, Deutsche Welle and TDP.

The QSL Card Scanning Kit is practical digital solution to help hams and shortwave listeners manage their ever-growing QSL card collections. No more plastic wall holders, multiple photo albums or shoeboxes needed.
Akron, Ohio (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
DX Engineering has createde a practical solution to help hams and shortwave listeners manage their ever-growing QSL card collections. The new DXE QSL Scanning Kit stores your cards and displays them in rotation on an attractive, compact screen. It’s great way to prominently display your QSL cards in the hamshack, living room or office. Reminisce about past QSOs or show off your collection to your friends.
Up to 2,000 QSL card images can be stored on the included 2MB SD card—larger capacity memory cards will store even more card images.
The complete kit consists of a compact digital scanner, a seven-inch LCD digital picture frame screen, plug-in power supplies and the SD card.
Operation is simple. Feed the QSL cards individually through the scanner--they are stored on the SD memory card. To view, just plug the scanner into the digital screen to view.
A slider guide adjusts easily to accommodate non-standard QSL sizes. The scanner accepts card sizes from 2 x 2 inches to a maximum of 4 x 6 inches. The images are saved in standard JPEG format, so they can be viewed on other electronic devices as well. Unlike bulky flatbed scanners, a PC is not required for the scanning process.
Part Number: DXE-QSL-KIT
Introductory Price: $ 89.95

Edmonton Journal November 13, 2011 2:07 AM

Re: "Morse code's dots and dashes fade into history; Wartime operators watch language
dying," The Journal, Nov. 7.

The Journal's obituary to Morse code was a most interesting article, but I disagree with the
conclusion that the code is a "dying language."

I have been a licensed amateur radio operator for many years; when I passed my
examinations, proficiency in sending and receiving the international telegraph code at 18
words per minute was mandatory. Morse was only recently removed from the amateur
exams, but the use of Morse code, and the amateur radio hobby as a whole, is far from
extinct.

One has only to spin the dial on any shortwave radio to hear this "dying language."

Hundreds of thousands of radio amateurs worldwide use Morse code on a daily basis, and
proficiency in Morse is still a mark of special skill. Some novices transmit slowly, while more
expert operators converse faster in code than is possible using the spoken word.

In emergencies, radio amateurs use Morse code to send vital messages when voice
communications are impossible because of poor reception or improvised equipment. Often,
amateur radio operators have provided the first or the only communication with devastated
areas when satellite links and cellphones may be knocked out.

It is true the day of the professional radio operator expert in Morse has been overtaken by
technology. But, while I have the greatest respect for the veterans of the Morse Telegraph
Club, I think it's slightly premature to bid adieu to either Morse code or amateur radio. Both
will be with us for a good while yet.
