Chuck, what you are hearing is almost certainly CNR 1 jammers of SOH, and
not the very low powered SOH transmissions....Walt

16100, 16160, 16300, 16600 kHz-Sound of Hope transmissions in Chinese.

Most are SIO 353, except 16600 kHz which is SIO 252 - weak but audible.

Pop Shop Radio - extra broadcast this Sunday 16 May 2021  View Printable Version 
Saturday, May 15 2021

Due to technical issues at Channel 292 Pop Shop Radio was not
transmitted on 9670 khz with the North America beam this past Wednesday.
As a result, an extra broadcast will take place at 1500 UTC on 9670 this
Sunday 16 May 2021 on the beam to North America. Our normal Saturday
broadcast to North America will go out as usual on 9670 at 2100 UTC on
Saturday 15 May.
Reception on this side of the Atlantic of 9670 has been particularly
good as of late. My monitoring via Kiwi SDRs has shown reception from
all along the east coast in North America and as far west as Chilliwack
BC. In addition there has been a fairly good signal in Brazil and the
Caribbean. A real treat this past week was a direct non-SDR reception
report from Cuba of 9670.

So -- reception reports most appreciated not only on 9670, but as well
as for 3955 -- and 6070. (3955 has been heard in the Caribbean as well
in Europe and North East Africa!)

OH -- BTW -- This show will be our special salute to the Eurovision Song
Contest and QSLs will have a Eurovision logo on them

RCI English section: goodbye  View Printable Version 
Saturday, May 15 2021


Radio Canada International

By Marc Montgomery
May 14, 2021
Canada’s international broadcast service from the English language team
of Radio Canada International has come to an end.RCI, (originally the
International Service, CBC-IS) was initially created towards the end of
the Second World War.

The purpose was to broadcast news and information from home via
shortwave to Canadian military personnel fighting in Europe. It also
began providing reliable news and information to recently liberated
countries and to Germans still in the war.

That reliable news and information was considered of great value during
the subsequent Cold War years, as several more languages were added to
the service.

This included for example Russian, Ukrainian, Czech, Hungarian and
Polish, along with such language sections as Brazilian Portuguese and

With 14 language sections in 1990, and some 200 staff, the full English
and French newsroom provided news of interest and importance for each
language section and specifically targeted to each of the various
broadcast regions around the world.

Following a major budget cut of some 80 per cent in 2012, the shortwave
and satellite service was terminated along with the majority of staff
including the newsroom and some language sections. In recent years, only
Chinese (Mandarin), Arabic, and Spanish remained along with English and

RCI was transformed into a much smaller internet-based operation
consisting of three people per language section.

In December 2020, the domestic public broadcaster CBC / Radio-Canada
announced that the English and French sections of RCI would close for
good in May.

In their place curated stories from the domestic English and French
public broadcaster will be provided.
A manager will now oversee the staff of eight who will adapt curated
stories from the CBC and Radio-Canada into Mandarin, Arabic, and
Spanish, along with Punjabi and Tagalog.

An effort was and is being made by the RCI Action Committee to preserve
and even expand the service which has garnered great support from a
former prime minister, former diplomats and many academics, but the end
date has come.

This is the last entry by the RCI English section.From the English
Section consisting of Lynn, Marc, and Levon, we thank you for having
shared our stories over these many years.
