Hej!

TL (tips)
Välkomna till MVE:s julnummer. Efter förra numrets urladdning vad gäller t ex Mexiko-hörigheter,
”mañana mejicana” som någon skrev, har det nu lugnat ner sig till mera ”normala” nivåer, nåja några
mexare finns även i dag. Detta nummer går annars i QSL-ens och QSL-kopiornas tecken, av de senare har
vi dessutom sparat några till kommande nummer. Tack till alla som förser oss med detta material.
Även om ARC är mitt i säsongen, detta är nummer 11 av totalt 20, så stundar snart ett nytt år. Självklart
hoppas vi på god uppslutning kring klubben under det nya året. Vi hoppas att även de som varit helt tysta
hittills under säsongen hör av sig. Vi har ju, som alla vet, ett aktivitetskrav, ett mycket lågt ställt sådant.
Vi har i två nummer efterlyst medlemmarnas åsikter betr decimalernas placering i loggen. Intresset har varit
svagt, men de få som hört av sig i frågan vill hellre ha decimalerna redovisade i tipstexten och inte i
frekvenskolumnen. Reds anser då att dessa decimaler bör redovisas på ett speciellt ställe, nämligen strax
före signaturen, inom parentes och i kursiv stil. Kan vi få alla att följa detta? Senare får vi ändra tabbinställningarna, men det återkommer vi till, vi tar en sak i taget.
I detta nummer hittar du förutom de fasta avdelningarna:
* StoppTid – Radio Nord 1 år 1962 – TN/RFK
* Preliminär inbjudan till konvent 23-24 april 2016 – BE/HM/GL
QSL:

* Myanma RTV, Yangon-576 kHz – JM

* KOTA Rapid City SD-1380 kHz – HR

Alla medlemmar önskas en
God Jul och ett Gott Nytt År!

5.12 0700 WPNW, Zeeland MI med ”WPNW Zeeland, Holland, Grand Rapids” följt av ABCnews. TJ
26.11 1000 WOAI San Antonio TX stark och dominant. San Antonio är en fantastisk stad med
sin River Walk. SW
25.11 0300 CJYE Oakville ON med “Joy 1250”. Tillsammans med WHHQ SW
25.11 0300 WHHQ Bridgeport MI rel px. ”Catolic radio...WHHQ Bridgeport”. Sedan EWTN
om bl a aborter. Riktigt bra. SW
5.12 0800 KWSU Pullman WA “Northwestern Public Radio 1250 KWSU” SW
12.12 0700 BBN Hamilton. Har alltså inte upphört – som t ex AM Gold 1450 – trots att uppgifter
gjort gällande så. (1280,009). JE
27.11 0700 CFMB Montreal QC med engelskt ID. SW
25.11 0300 CKBK London ON “Newstalk 12-90 CKBK”. SW

5.12 0830 KFKA Greeley CO upp med ID. SW
2.12 0659 Dementi logg av WDTW i förra numret: Fick ett mail från BOS som säger: Har inte
börjat kolla Ekot förrän nu. Ser att du loggat WDTW? Stationen är nerlagd sedan
några år och antennmasten bortforslad. WCCW kanske? /BOS. Inte är det lätt att höra
en nerlagd station som dessutom har en bortforslad antenn. Att CIWW fanns där var
inte att ta miste på med mycket snack om Ottawa. Ytterligare en, ibland jämnstark, där
jag uppfattade Air America precis före anropet, vilket ledde mig på fel spår och tyckte
mig uppfatta ID som WTDW. Men BOS säger efter att ha lyssnat på min inspelning:
Vad gäller 1310 så hittar jag inget ID på jänkaren utan bara ett klent "CIWW" före
nyheterna. Sista W:et hörs bra och näst sista skapligt om man gör en kort slinga. Det
går bara få till CIWW, tycker jag, om man tar med alla bokstäverna i slingan./BOS
Så roligt slutade den loggningen .... Stort tack till BOS som var riktigt vaken. TN

8.12 0658 WPWC Dumfries-Triangle VA. Fick ett mail från Christoph Ratzer med en superfin
inspelning av denna station den 8/12. Christoph säger: Today are some fine signals
around 0530/06 UT. A new one for me: "Radio Zion 14-80 AM portadora de buenas
nuevas“ from Dumfries Triangle - Virginia with big signal for a 500 watt station!
Hope you also find this in your recording on 1480? Enclosed a longer clip with great
IDs. Så det var bara att leta fram inspelningen och först vid 0658 fanns stationen
också här men väldigt svagt. Hade aldrig hittat den utan hjälp av Christophs
inspelning, men det finns ett R Zion ID där i varje fall. På deras hemsida
http://www.radiozion1480am.com/ kan man läsa: Estamos agradecidos con el Señor
Jesús por que después de una pequeña ausencia, Radio Zion 1480 am, esta
nuevamente trasmitiendo el mensaje de salvación a toda el área de Washington DC.
Para la gloria y honra del Señor Jesús con alabanzas y adoración que fortalece la
vida del cristiano y predicaciones edificantes para el provecho de todo el pueblo de
Dios. Gloria a Dios! På Christophs andra inspelning anropar man vid 0600 både
med WPWC och R Zion. Christoph säger också att det finns ytterligare ett program
som körs från denna station som heter We Act Radio: We Act Radio is a media
corporation that combines broadcast and new media to deliver our shows in the
formats people use most. You can follow our shows by streaming them at
WeActRadio.com, listening on AM and FM radio stations around the country,
downloading them via podcast or on iTunes, or subscribing to our YouTube channel.

finns dom flesta x-bandare redan i pärmen. TJ

5.12 2330 HJCU Cadena Melodía, Bogotá med id – kändes ovanligt tidigt för denna station. JE
6.12 0303 OAX4G RPP, San Isidoro. Flera “lokala” id med frekvenser. JE
5.12 2330 YVKK RNV, Valencia – en till spansktalande under kändes intressantare... JE
6.12 0550 YVMN R Coro, Coro låg länge och “murrade”, men kom upp här med fin hörbarhet
under någon kvsart. JE
6.12 0559 LV9 R Salta, Salta. Hade inte alls väntat mig denna med rådande colombiakonditioner”, men HK bekräftar: "Están escuchando AM 8-40 LV9 Radio Salta. El
aire que respira Salta, tu radio le da la hora, 2 horas 59 minutos" (840,011). JE

6.12 0600 HCRF2 R Ecuantena, Guayaquil varvade med RCN Cali när splattret på denna svåra
frekvens inte var helt öronbedövande. Inget id men en promo som HK känner igen
och är unik för stationen. ”Stationen drivs av den brasilianska Igreja Universal
precis som Radio Ideal i Venezuela 1130 och Radio Buenos Aires 1350”, påpekar
Henrik Klemetz. JE

6.12 0526 HCDF2 UCSG, Guayaquil starkare “än vanligt” och med oväntat program –

“Denna station använder sig av en s k "espacio publicitario" ungefär som man gör i
Argentina. I Colombia, Venezuela gör man det inte.” JE
12.12 0700 HJCA Capital Radio, Bogotá ”Al servicio de deporte” RLH
6.12 0530 HJAR La Cariñosa, Cartagena.. Ytterligare två stationer som spelade musik här
också, men dem fick jag inte fram i splattret från DLF. (1270,029) JE
6.12 0558 OCX1Q RPP, Juliaca. Lokalt id med fm-frekvenser för Juliaca och El Altiplano

Från e-posten
Jan Edh 14.12.2015:
Det blev en natt klart över genomsnittet och bättre än förväntat i torpet, 5-6/12.
Huvudsakligen Colombia/Venezuela/Puerto Rico/Cuba, men också överraskningar i form av ett par Peruaner men också från Guayaquil. Allra bäst var det en timme mellan 05.30 och 06.30 UTC.
Den morgontopp som kan förväntas mot 08 UTC den här årstiden uteblev däremot helt nu också.
------En dålig natt, 11-12/12, följdes av en liten öppning på övre delen av bandet mot Västindien, men som helhet hade störningen som slagit till “förstört” ganska ordentligt. Signaler dök upp “från intet” men försvann
dessvärre i de flesta fall lika fort.
20.12.2015:
En riktigt God Jul och Gott Nytt År vill jag önska alla ARC-are och speciellt vill jag naturligtvis vända
mig till redaktörerna och tacka för ännu ett år av fantastiskt jobb för oss. Vare sig konditioner eller tiden har
givit anledning till någon lyssning senaste veckan, men jag hoppas jag ska hinna med ett besök i
Fredriksfors innan jul.
Stefan Wikander 18.12.2015:
Lite mera från stugan. Ibland stunder med många stationer men en stund senare är det bara dominanter och
knappt det och dessutom svåra splash. Oroligt i atmosfären får man skylla på. Ingen dagtidsdx alls utan allt
försvinner efter soluppgång och inget har kommit tillbaka fram på förmiddagen. Vi får önska en God Jul
och ett Gott Nytt År.
Jan Oscarsson 18.12.2015:
Bidraget denna gång är QSL-betonat men nu ska det faktiskt bli lite nytt DX av också under Jul- och Nyår
då jag och Rolf Åhman tröskar mellanvågen hos Bosse i Furuögrund. Vad månde höras när vi startar nu
19.12 med 2 inkommande CME och allt? En Iran-logg utlovas till nästa Eko om inte annat! God Jul och
Gott Nytt År till alla MV-freaks önskar JOB
-----20.12.2015:
Jag lägger till ett litet PS på mitt bidrag häromdan då det kom ett rasande trevligt QSL från KHAC-880 sent
igår, lördag kväll! Ett av de roligaste fynden hittills från PAX109. QSL-illu bifogas och till alla Eko-läsare
kan vi nu alltså även säga Ya’at’eeh Keshmish!
Hasse Mattisson 20.12.2015:
HM har fått en julhälsning från sin gode vän Tony Lopez, WVBF:
“HI HASSE, THINGS ARE GOING WELL AT 5,000 WATTS. SOON TO HAVE STRONGER NIGHT
TIME POWER. I THINK OF YOU AND ALL THE FINE MEN I MET IN SWEDEN 1 AND 1/2 YEARS
AGO, THAT WAS A GREAT 5 DAYS...
SENT YOU A HOLIDAY CARD 3 DAYS AGO AND I HOPE YOU LIKE IT. I WISH I COULD VISIT
YOU AGAIN OR GET YOU TO VISIT THE USA. PLEASE HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND ALL THE MEMBERS OF YOUR CLUB, YOUR FRIEND TONY
LOPES, WVBF 1530 AM”
Hans Östnell 20.12.2015:
Har ingen logg att bidra med denna gång, tyvärr. Har inte blivit någon lyssning alls i december, eftersom
vädret här uppe vid Barentskusten har gjort det omöjligt för mig att ta mig ner till husvagnen i Komagvær.
Istället har en hel del tid gått till att lyssna igenom gamla inspelningar, samt att skriva rapporter och followups. Det har renderat i en hel del trevligheter, såväl via e-post som via "snigelposten". OA har fått sig en
laddning att bita i. Största överraskningen är nog att KFBX Fairbanks AK på 970 kHz verkar ha börjat
svara igen. Har väl skickat sisådär femtielva rapporter och f/up's, och nu kom det minsann ett trevligt svar,
med ett fint PDF-kort på en rapport från 2012! Kan vara läge att skicka en ny rapport eller f/up för de som
fortfarande saknar KFBX i pärmen, således. Man vet ju aldrig hur länge svarsviljan varar, hi!
Ber att få tillönska redaktionen och alla ARC:are en synnerligen God Jul och ett Gott Nytt År!
Håkan Sundman 20.12.2015:
Bifogar igen en laddning logos för MV Eko. Fritt fram att förstora eller förminska för lämplig spaltfyllning.
Passar på att önska redaktionen och medlemmarna God Jul och Gott Nytt DX-år 2016!

Jorma Mäntylä 20.12.2015:
Översänder QSL-kopia från Myanmar. Kvinnan i den nedre bilden kanske tror att hon arbetar vid
Grönlands Radio eller KBRW Barrow? God Jul och Gott Nytt År!
Torolf Johnsson 20.12.2015:
Tack för det gångna året och för det utmärkta arbetet som ni redaktörer bidrar med. Inte bara bulletinen utan
även snabb hantering av t ex WRTH utgivningen. Toppen! God Jul och Gott Nytt År!
Rolf Larsson 21.12.2015:
Här kommer några tips från mig. Jag har lyssnat vid ett par tillfällen i december, men jag har inte haft så
mycket tid med efterarbetet. God Jul!
Kai Mauseth 21.12.2015:
Conds. har vært elendige og Smøla er delvis nede fortsatt, så derfor bare et par tips denne gangen. Håper på
snarlig reparasjon av Smøla SDR-ene og bedring i condsen i jula. Ønsker alle en riktig God Jul og Godt
Nyttår!

ARC-SWB konvent 2016
Till våren väntar ett nytt ARC/SWB-konvent, denna gång på Södra Vätterbygdens Folkhögskola i
Jönköping. Vår medlem GL har välvilligt ställt upp för att göra detta möjligt. En preliminär inbjudan till
konventet hittar du i detta nummer. Gör en notering i din agenda för helgen 23-24 april redan nu så kommer
inget annat emellan.
WRTH 2016
I tisdags i förra veckan skickades WRTH 2016 ut till alla ARC:s beställare. I de böcker som skall passera
flera postsorteringsanläggningar lade BE i ett äldre visitkort från Morokuliensändningarna om något skulle
hända paketet på vägen. Förra året försvann ett paket på sin väg och det tog 1 månad innan posten hittade
det. Nu kan de ringa mig direkt. Vi återkommer med alla uppgifter efter helgerna.
EDXC 2016 i Manchester, UK
Denna årliga konferens kommer nästa år att hållas i Manchester under tiden 9-12 september. Från ARC är
preliminära besökare BE och HM, kanske någon mer?
Lödpenna som inte kräver elektricitet
Har under många år haft behov av en lödpenna som
man kan använda på ställen utan elektricitet. Har
säkert haft 5 olika tidigare och alla har varit mer eller
mindre undermåliga.
Så hittade jag denna på Jula. I en elegant plåtlåda och
för lite drygt 400:-. Denna lödpenna är i en klass för
sig. Lätt att reglera, lätt att löda med. Precision i alla
reglage.
Ett tips vid användande av alla gaspennor, de blir
snabbare uppvärmda om man efter tändningen har
dem stående med spetsen uppåt. (Stefan Wikander)

Sergio mentioned, that RTÉ 252 kHz will close down on January 19th, 2016, but I am not sure that is
correct. My latest information concerning 252 kHz is, that the transmitter will be kept on air until at least
2017.

The LW service of RTE will continue until 2017, with reduced broadcast time. These are the latest news.
There has also been a survey about the listening of 252 kHz (the news about it and the survey link are on

Ofcom receive 27 applications for South/South East England …………….18 November, 2015
Ofcom has received 27 applications from community radio groups wanting to operate a station in the South/
South East, outside the M25. They had originally invited applications as follows:
“Ofcom is inviting applications for services operating on FM and AM throughout this region – we are not
excluding any areas from the applications process on the basis of frequency availability as we have done in
the past for other areas. We offer some guidance on availability of suitable frequencies in different parts of
the south east, explain the importance of the transmission site information given in the application, and set
out how we will assess spectrum availability on receipt of applications.”
None of the details published show whether applications have been made for the AM or FM band.
Some areas have more than one application, such as Andover, Brighton and Southampton. Amongst the
proposals are Wey Valley Radio, Gaydio Brighton, BFBS Brize Norton and Angel Radio.
Ofcom usually announces the winners within 12 months.

BBC World Service Receives £85m to Enhance Services ………………….23 November, 2015
The government is to invest £85 million a year in enhancing BBC services around the world including in
Russia, North Korea, the Middle East and Africa.
The money is to help "build the global reach of the World Service" to half a billion people and "increase
access to news and information". Director general Tony Hall said he "warmly welcomed" the
announcement.
The government will provide £34m between 2016-17 and £85m a year from 2017-18 for digital, TV and
radio. The next review of this funding will be in 2020.
"This new funding is the single biggest increase in the World Service budget ever committed by any
government," said Lord Hall. "The millions announced today will help the BBC deliver on our commitment
to uphold global democracy through accurate, impartial and independent news reporting. "The World
Service is one of the UK's most important cultural exports and one of our best sources of global influence.
We can now further build on that."
He added: "The funding will also help speed us on to our target of reaching half a billion people globally."
The BBC currently reaches 308 million people worldwide, and its goal is to reach 500 million people by
2022.
Announcing the new funding in its document the National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and
Security Review, the government said: "The BBC World Service reaches into some of the most remote
places in the world, providing a link to the UK for individuals and societies who would otherwise not have
this opportunity. (BBC News)

Government to review Commercial radio regulation ……………………...15 November, 2015
Ed Vaizey has proposed to review a number of key regulation areas for commercial radio. Commercial
radio body Radiocentre has welcomed the plans, which were communicated to CEO Siobhan Kenny this
week.
In the letter, the Minister highlights the first phase of this work that will be undertaken by Ofcom and
Government to consider the value of continuing with music formats and detailed localness requirements in
their current form.
This announcement comes as more digital radio stations arrive, which are not subject to the same range of
regulatory requirements as traditional radio services on FM or AM.
sid 16
Vaizey wants Ofcom to look at options for a simplified radio content regime that will work across analogue
and digital radio. He questions if there is a need/desire in the longer term to retain a regulatory distinction
between community radio and small-scale commercial radio if both types of service are going to be carried
on the same multiplexes.
Siobhan Kenny, CEO of Radiocentre says: “UK radio is a good shape with an unrivalled range of services
available for listeners. But it also faces an unprecedented challenge in the battle for listeners and
advertisers, particularly from online services that are largely unregulated.
“If commercial radio is to continue to support its fantastic mix of local stations and national brands, then it
is right to take a fresh look at the regulation. We look forward to working with Government and Ofcom to
try and help level the playing field so radio stations of all shapes and sizes have the flexibility they need in
a digital age
Following the completion of Ofcom’s work, DCMS will assess the options in detail ahead of a consultation,
which Ed Vaizey hopes to be in a position to publish in late-spring of 2016. (www.radiocentre.co.uk)
First football deal secured for talkSPORT 2 ……………………………….23 November, 2015
talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2 will broadcast live radio commentary on UEFA EURO 2016 and 2020
matches.The stations will broadcast all 51 matches live from the opening game on June 10 through to the
final on July 10, as it signs as an official radio station for the competitions in the UK.
Calum Macaulay, talkSPORT Managing Director, said: “UEFA EURO 2016 will be the first time that four
nations from the British Isles have been involved in a major tournament since 1958, so it’s a massive
opportunity for our commercial partners to engage with a mainly male audience next summer. Having
talkSPORT 2 up and running will allow us to broadcast the final group games across either station and give
listeners their choice of matches. Our coverage will include over 500 hours on location in France with the
best sports broadcasters in the business.
“As with our coverage for previous tournaments, we’ll be going wall to wall with our output, on air, on
line, digitally and in print. It is a major investment for us and to broadcast both the 2016 and 2020
tournaments signals our continued commitment to invest in live rights to grow audiences for our
commercial partners.”
talkSPORT 2 is due to launch in March 2016 and will be available on national DAB, online and through the
talkSPORT 2 app.(www.radiotoday.co.uk)

Community Radio 10 years old ……………………………………………..,27 November, 2015
Community radio, which offers thousands of volunteers the chance to get involved in broadcasting across
the UK, is now ten years old.
The last decade has seen the number of community radio stations increase from just a handful to more than
230 stations, each reflecting the local needs and interests of its audience.
Community radio is a not-for-profit sector, largely run by an army of 20,000 dedicated volunteers, who
collectively work for around 2.5 million hours1 every year to bring original programming and locally-made
content to listeners around the country.
sid 17
Stations usually broadcast to everyone in a geographical area, but around a third tailor their output to serve
a particular community– such as older people, or an ethnic or religious group.
Community radio stations typically cover a 5km radius, broadcasting on average 93 hours a week of
original output. Many reflect a diverse mix of cultures and interests in their region. Stations also work
within their community to offer a range of benefits such as training opportunities, work experience, local
news and information resources.
Susan Williams, Community Radio Manager at Ofcom, said: "Community Radio stations have deep-rooted
connections in their communities. Local people run these stations, producing content to inform and
entertain their local community and offering real benefits like radio training.
Ofcom launched the first phase of community radio licensing back in September 2004 and received 200
applications for the first licences. The first station to launch after this was The Eye in Melton Mowbray,
which was recently honoured for its long-standing contribution to its local community.
The Eye has doubled its workforce in 10 years, with all staff volunteering their time. Other stations
reaching their 10-year milestone in the coming weeks include Unity 101 in Southampton, Awaz FM in
Glasgow, Angel Radio in Havant, Cross Rhythms City Radio in Stoke on Trent, and GTFM in Pontypridd.
Community radio provides a voice for communities across the UK stretching from the Scilly Isles to the
north of Scotland. Ofcom remains committed to helping it grow into its second decade.
Earlier this year Ofcom began trialling a new technological approach which could provide a more
affordable way for smaller stations to broadcast on DAB digital radio, ensuring UK listeners could benefit
from hundreds more local and community radio stations in the future. (Ofcom web site)

BBC Radio 4 Extra UK’s biggest digital-only station ………………………..1 November 2015
The Station reports 12.6% rise as Radio 5 Live Sports Extra also posts record ratings.
Hancock’s Half Hour is one of the most popular shows on Radio 4 Extra, the BBC digital station reported a
12.6% rise in listeners in the third quarter of the year.
BBC Radio 4 Extra has passed 6 Music to become the biggest digital-only station in the UK.
The Radio 4 spin-off station reported a 12.6% rise in listeners to hit 2.2 million, surpassing 6 Music, which
also managed a record quarter, according to the latest official listening figures from Rajar.
“I am delighted that the programmes we’ve chosen are capturing the imagination of more and more
listeners – from comedy classics to the best and most exciting acts at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and
imaginative new hits from around the world such as the TED Radio Hour,” said Gwyneth Williams,
controller of Radio 4 and Radio 4 Extra.
BBC 6 Music, the first digital-only station to pass the 2 million weekly listeners mark, reported a record
audience of 2.18 million, up 6.5% quarter-on-quarter.
Radio 5 Live’s digital spin-off, Sports Extra, also achieved a record, with listeners rising 6.3% to 1.7
million in part thanks to the Ashes series between England and Australia.
Radio 1 spin-off 1Xtra also surged by 19.9% to 1.15 million, the second highest audience the station has
reported.
Absolute Radio 80s retained its position as the biggest commercial digital-only station, despite losing 2% of
listeners quarter on quarter to 1.57 million. There was less cheer for Kiss spin-off Kisstory, which saw its
audience fall by 10.4% in the third quarter to 1.3 million.
A total of 41.9% of all radio listening is now via digital platforms, up from 37.8% in the same quarter in
2014, the lion’s share on digital audio broadcasting (DAB) radio.
The majority, albeit only just, is still on analogue AM or FM, accounting for 50.4% of listening. A further
7.7% of listening is “unspecified” by respondents to the Rajar survey.

LLE-4 Radio Northern Star – 1611 kHz
Your ref.:
Date: 14.12.15
Dear Bengt Ericson,
Thanks so much for your interesting reception report! This is highly appreciated! Congratulations on a fine catch!
This will verify your reception as correct of Radio Northern Star on December 13th, 2015, 2100z-.
You were listening to a transmitter test from LLE-4 Radio Northern Star over LKB LLE Bergen Broadcasting
Station, Erdal, Norway, on 1611 kHz, 186 metres in the MW band. Please take this letter as our QSL.
This site was formerly used by the NRK for National and Regional broadcasting over LKB on 890 Khz, and local
broadcasting over LLE, 1115 kHz. It now houses some refurbished vintage MW, SW and FM transmitters plus others
we hope to put on the air later.
The English and Norwegian announcements you heard were by two of our American announcers Howard and Susan,
and myself.
This is a licensed station and trial broadcast operation of our international broadcasting project which also has a web
station started in 2012 that may be found on www.northernstar.cc . We have simple studio facilities in Straume,
Norway.
The current license permits us to send out identifications and test tones. Next year our plan is to get a RSL (Restricted
Service License), but nevertheless full broadcasting license.
Our strategy is to promote our project on this “Top of the Dial” frequency and at a later stage take into use a lower
frequency already licensed to our site with higher power and better daytime coverage, although the skywave
capabilities of 1611 are wonderful!
We are looking for sponsors, and for franchisees to operate domestic versions of The Northern Star, such as in
Sweden, and on Norway’s new DAB+ muxes.
So far we have also been heard in the Shetland Islands, England, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Germany, and Austria.
The listening record at this moment is held by Bjarne Mjelde in Kongsfjord, Norway, 1574 kms from our tx-QTH
Grensedalen 59, Erdal, in Askøy Municipality, Northwest of Bergen, the capital of Western Norway. (Coordinates:
60°26 56,728 N 5°12 59,206 E)
We are using an ex-Marine Skanti TRP-8250 HF 250 Watts remotely controlled transmitter, able to operate at @65
watts in AM mode and 250 watts USB through an inverted "V" tuned to this frequency. We may also use our
refurbished “Comrod” antenna on the site which currently is used on and tuned to 1314 kHz. We are also occasionally
heard on LLE-3 5895 kHz.
Other transmitters on site Foreningen Bergen Kringkaster(FBK):
LLE-3 5895 kHz 200 watts USB 50 watt AM, Yaesu FT-950-tx. Antenna: Inverted V.(Different from the 1611 antenna.)
LLE-2 1314 kHz 250 watts, usually 150 watts Western Electric (WE 451A-1) tx from the late 40s, brought back into life
after it closed as LLU for NRK Odda 1466 kHz over 36 years ago. Antenna: Comrod-antenna. Presently inactive due to
tx fault.
LLE-FM 103,8 mHz FM 100 watts, Itelco-tx. Antenna: Omnidirectional.
The frequency of 1611.0 is now a Norwegian broadcasting frequency as the spectrum was formerly used by LGQ/LGB
for its LGF transmissions from Bore and later Vigrestad. As you know, it was also used by Vatican Radio. We hope
unlicensed transmissions on this channel will move away, although we recognize the skills and talents of many such
operators, and wish them well. We are in favour of “The X-band” being used for small-scale legal broadcasting.
Stay tuned for more tests from LLE-4 1611 in the near future, these may also be in USB mode.

KTMT Medford OR – 580 kHz
Hello Jan, Yes, that was indeed us!!! It was a thrill and a big surprise to receive your wonderful message, so thank you for reaching out. Amazing that you could hear us all the way from Sweden without going online, which seems to be the common way of doing it in this day and age! I could certainly identify our station tag for KTMT‐AM by hearing your recording, despite the static. We have since altered our station branding slightly, so now we have 96.1 FM/580 AM ESPN Radio as part of the main station ID. That effort was completed in mid‐November. It sounds a lot better since the change, and there were a ton of old imaging files that we were able to remove from our system. As a matter of fact, the person you heard on the station ID is no longer working here!!! Consequently, that station ID is no longer airing. I don’t know how long you were able to tune in for, but our station features a mixture of American sports talk programming as well as special broadcasts of American football, basketball, baseball, and even soccer (which of course, is your football). In the fall we started doing games for St. Mary’s High School, a small private school in Medford of about several hundred students ages 11‐18. Medford is a town in Oregon just north of Ashland, and our “Radio Medford” headquarters are located in Medford as well. We only have Ashland in the station ID because that’s where our transmitters are located! Again, very nice to hear from you. All of us from Radio Medford and our station wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas in turn. Hope you are able to hear more of us in the future so that we can build a following in Sweden! At the very least, with all of the craziness in the American news going on right now, it’s nice to have the opportunity to reach out past our borders. Feel free to contact me anytime with any future comments you might have. Happy holidays from the United States.

KHAC Tse Bonito NM – 880 kHz
Thanks so
much for sending us your report! That recording is in fact our
station and it is actually my voice that you are hearing. My name is Joe Cook. I am
the Station Manager at KHAC. The part of the Legal ID that was inaudible was “Tse
Bonito, Window Rock, Gallup”. We are located in Tse Bonito, New Mexico which
borders Window Rock, Arizona, the capital of the Navajo Nation. My wife, our 9
year old son and I moved out here from New Jersey this past March to serve as
missionaries with Western Indian Ministries in their Radio Department. Previously,
I spent many years working for Cruisin’ 92.1 WVLT, an Oldies station in Vineland,
New Jersey and prior to that I worked at 1360 WNJC in Washington Twp, NJ,
where I started out in radio back in May of 2006. I’m so glad that you were able to
tune in and get our signal! Must have been just the perfect conditions on that day! A
little background, KHAC went on the air in 1967 and has been serving the Navajo
Nation ever since! We also operate two other stations, KWIM 104.9 which is also
located in Tse Bonito, but licensed in Window Rock, and finally KTBA 760 AM in
Tuba City, Arizona. Tuba City is located about 2 ½ hours from here. Me and another
guy each drive there twice a month to broadcast live for a segment we call Tuesdays
in Tuba. There is also a live program on Saturday mornings, but otherwise that
station is a simulcast of KWIM. Once again, it was really great hearing from you
and I hope that you and your family have a very Merry Christmas or, as the Navajo
say, Ya’at’eeh Keshmish!
Take care,
Joe Cook

1230. Caliente is our slogan, and 98.9 is the translator that is
associated with that station. Bo Olofsson also received that
station in Sweden at almost the same time. Must have been an
interesting Ionosphere that night.
This is to confirm your reception of KLAV, AM
1230.
KLAV was running 1 KW at that time into a nondirectional single stick tower over a poor ground system. We
just recently moved it onto one tower of a triplexed array with
KWWN (1100) that has a far better ground system so should do
much better
I’m a 71 year old Certified Professional
Broadcast Engineer who is also an Extra Class Ham, WB0KSW. I
have been an occasional AM broadcast band DXer.

Hi Jan:
I am pleased to Verify your Reception of our WLEC 1450 based on your recording.
Our WLEC operates with 1000 Watts both Day and Night from a non-directional Antenna
located about one mile from the shore of Lake Erie at Sandusky, Ohio.
We use a BE AM1A transmitter into a 54 meter high tower.
WLEC began broadcasting in December 1947. We are owned by BAS Broadcasting which
operates 9 radio stations in north Ohio.
WLEC programs light Rock music called “Timeless” and many sporting events.
I have attached a Coverage Map and photos of the building we share with
WCPZ(FM) and WMJK(FM).
