Christchurch Radio Services Status

Christchurch [New Zealand]
Earthquake
Radio Services Status 2
__________________________ 

Access to the CBD radio studios of many Christchurch radio
broadcasters continues to be denied by the civil defence authorities
a week after the devasting earthquake hit this New Zealand city of
350,000.

Radio New Zealand, The Radio Network and Radioworks all have studios
within the cordoned off zone and engineers are still working through
city buildings to determine whether they are safe for temporary or
permanent access and use.

NewstalkZB is now carrying its news coverage across 1017,1098 and
1503 AM and 106.5 AM [replacing Hauraki Amp'd], RDU 98.5 has returned
to the air from temporary studios whilst Tahu 90.5 now refers to
Christchurch as Quake City and has been heard carrying iwi network
programs.

Local community access Plains FM has studios at the Christchurch
Polytech campus and is now using its transmitter to broadcast the BBC
World Service from London as an emergency measure.

Radio Ferrymead 1413AM in the badly hit Ferrymead area was silent

Christchurch Earthquake and NZ Radio DX League website

Hi

On the New Zealand Radio DX League website I've put up a Google 
Earthquake People Finder gadget which may assist people in finding 
friends/family displaced during the Earthquake.

I've also been having people from Overseas and around NZ email me 
webmaster@... asking about individual Christchurch DXers.

I have just started putting up a list of Christchurch DXers but only 
with their permission on the website   http://radiodx.com/nzrdxl/

If you have any concerns or queries about a Christchurch DXer who is 
not listed, please feel free to contact me at editor@... or 
webmaster@... and I will try to assist.

Regards
Mark Nicholls

Glenn Hauser logs February 28-March 1, 2011

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, still no signal detectable from LRA36, supposed to reactivate this week, checked
March 1 at 1439, 1522, 1536. At least nothing on 15475 to impede it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 15340, HCJB longpath making big het against Morocco 15341, March 1 at 1438; it`s
atop Morocco at 1455 in slow English, then at 1455 RTM dominates in Arabic until off at 1500:20*. We`re in
luck, Morocco QSYing at its nominal time instead of an hour late! Its 15345+ carrier was already on a minute
later. 

Meanwhile HCJB in the clear on 15340: suspected it was `Spotlight` show, stealth evangelism thru English
learning, and so it was, running a bit late, with outro contact info at 1501, plugging
http://www.radio.english.net and 1502 offering weekly texts by e-mail. Then Oz-accent, presumed
local break from Melbourne as I break for breakfast of raisin bread and unprocessed red grapes, from
Chile? [Who needs Twitter?] 1520 recheck, signal a lot weaker (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. Propagation conditions were quite disturbed morning of March 1, with 13m almost dead, many
signals fluttery, even trans-equatorial ones like Australia on 9590. Quite a contrast between two
Sackville frequencies at 1424: 9610, RCI strong and steady, aimed thisaway; 9625, CBCNQ weak and
fluttery plus Doppler causing frequency to wobble as it bounces off the auroral zone, aimed thataway
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake March 1:
 8400, fair with flutter at 1422; not audible at 1526
10300, fair with flutter at 1427; just barely audible at 1526
14700, good with flutter at 1434
In next hour did complete bandscan 8-22 MHz and only found this too:
13970, poor at 1532. Was not heard an hour earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 13725, March 1 at 1533, huge collision of Chinese vs Chinese, with flutter: CNR1 jamming
vs R. Free Asia, 1500-1700, 250 kW, 295 degrees via TINIAN, per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Re: [dxld] Glenn Hauser logs February 28-March 1, 2011

I apologize for continuing to make correxions after posting what should have been accurate in the first
place, but this is necessary in keeping with my policy of being correct later if not sooner! There were two
typos concerning times in these items, so replace them with:

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 15340, HCJB longpath making big het against Morocco 15341, March 1 at 1438; it`s
atop Morocco at 1455 in slow English, then at 1459 RTM dominates in Arabic until off at 1500:20*. We`re in
luck, Morocco QSYing at its nominal time instead of an hour late! Its 15345+ carrier was already on a minute
later. 

Meanwhile HCJB in the clear on 15340: suspected it was `Spotlight` show, stealth evangelism thru English
learning, and so it was, running a bit late, with outro contact info at 1501, plugging
http://www.radio.english.net and 1502 offering weekly texts by e-mail. Then Oz-accent, presumed
local break from Melbourne as I break for breakfast of raisin bread and unprocessed red grapes, from
Chile? [Who needs Twitter?] 1520 recheck, signal a lot weaker (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. Allan Weiner notified me Feb 28 that the 1900-1930 weekday slot on WBCQ 7415 has been sold,
so he is moving WORLD OF RADIO to Wednesdays at 2215, instead of Tue/Wed/Thu at 2000.

Being two hours closer to sunset should improve reception initially, altho sunset moves inexorably
later. CRI English via Kashgar to Europe is on 7415 at 2100-2200, which means that after DST starts here
March 13, WOR will be colliding with that at 2115 Wednesdays, so enjoy the clear frequency for two weeks at
least. This also means we must hustle to get WOR done by early UT Wednesdays instead of Thursdays, lest the
only WBCQ airing remaining be a week old by the time it appears.

`Frecuencia al Día`, which has been running Mondays at 2000 must also be moved or dropped. These changes
have not yet been made on

World of Radio new time on WBCQ

** U S A [and non]. Allan Weiner notified me Feb 28-March 1 that the 2000-2030 weekday slot on WBCQ 7415 has
been sold, so he is moving WORLD OF RADIO to Wednesdays at 2215, instead of Tue/Wed/Thu at 2000.

Being two hours closer to sunset should improve reception initially, altho sunset moves inexorably
later. CRI English via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, to Europe is on 7415 at 2100-2200, which means that after
DST starts here March 13, WOR will be colliding with that at 2115 Wednesdays, so enjoy the clear frequency
for two weeks at least. This also means we must hustle to get WOR done by early UT Wednesdays instead of
Thursdays, lest the only WBCQ airing remaining be a week old by the time it appears. New WOR 1554 is ready to
air March 2 at 2215 UT.

Please let us know how reception is in your area at this new time.

`Frecuencia al Día`, which has been running Mondays at 2000 must also be moved or dropped. These changes
have not yet been made on
http://schedule.wbcq.com/main.php?fn=sked&freq=7415

Another change to be noted: the WWRB airing of WORLD OF RADIO, UT Fridays at 0430, was on 2390 and 5050 last
week, and will probably continue to be on 2390 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
