World Radio Day set for February 13


translated from original post in Spanish via Jose Bueno/playdx

Dear listeners
I would recall that on 13 February was established by UNESCO as World Radio Day (World Radio Day), a day to celebrate radio as a medium of communication and to promote access to information and freedom expression.

The theme of World Radio Day 2016 is "Radio in times of disaster and emergency," with which it is intended to celebrate the importance of radio in our lives, both in peacetime and in difficult circumstances.

We would be interested to know your views on this issue and, therefore, we invite you to send short written or recorded messages, email our span@rri.ro direction. The most interesting messages will be broadcast in a special program.

We also hope to send us personal photos free of copyright and referred to the role that radio plays in their lives, to upload them with your comments to the page RRI and our profiles in social networks.

Greetings from Italy!

On February 13, Marconi Radio International celebrates the  role of free shortwave radio on the occasion of World Radio Day. That's why we have produced, in cooperation with other two free radios of Italy, Radio Europe  and IBC – Italian Broadcasting Corporation, a special 1 hour show in Italian.

This day of celebration is also an opportunity to remember why we love free  radio, to highlight the power of this medium to bring people together and to share this with shortwave enthusiasts.

With this in mind, we invite SWLs  to listen  not only to Marconi Radio International on 11390 kHz but also Italian Broadcasting Corporation on 6970 kHz and Radio Europe on 6875 kHz. These shortwave stations  will in fact carry over the air, next Saturday at different times, that special programme which includes interviews with people behind the operation of the three free radios.

As usual MRI, which this Saturday, 13 February 2016,  will be on the air from 09.00 to 14.00 UTC on 11390 kHz with 30 watts, encourages reception reports from listeners. Audio clips (mp3-file) of our broadcasts  are welcome! We QSL 100%.

Southern Thailand Violence Raises Fears of Insurgent Escalation

(photo via VOA)

February 12, 2016 10:54 AM
BANGKOK—
Attacks across Thailand’s southern border provinces have raised fears of an escalation in insurgent violence, even as the Thai government has stepped up security operations and reports progress in its efforts to hold peace talks.  Human-rights advocates are calling for an investigation into claims of torture against detainees, including a death in custody.

Outbreak of violence
The outbreak of violence in Thailand’s southern provinces of Yala and Pattani on Friday included the roadside bombing of a military patrol providing security for local school teachers, drive-by shootings and arson attacks.

The insurgency in the largely Muslim-populated region, in its 12th year, has claimed over 6,200 lives, defying official efforts to end the bloodshed.

Panitan Wattanayagorn, a security adviser to the Thai defense minister, says the latest insurgent attacks are in response to security sweeps, including a raid Wednesday in Pattani Province that led to the seizure of a large quantity of bomb-making materials.

Solar cycle 24 activity continues to be lowest in nearly 200 years


by Anthony Watts

Ir has been a couple of months since WUWT has checked in on the progress of solar cycle 24. Right now, the sun is in “cue ball” mode, with no large visible sunspots as seen above the most recent Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) photo.

Since there is a new analysis out at Pierre Gosselin’s website by Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt, I thought it would be a good time to do an update. They write:
[The sun was] rather quiet in January. The determined solar sunspot number (SSN) was 56.6, which is 71% of the mean this far into the period, calculated using the 23 previously measured solar cycles.

Russia warns of 'new world war' starting in Syria


By Middle East Editor, Matthew Holehouse in Brussels and Louisa Loveluck in Gaziantep

Foreign and defence ministers of the leading international states are meeting in Munich and Brussels following the collapse of the latest round of peace talks. 

Russia warned of “a new world war" starting in Syria on Thursday after a dramatic day in which Gulf states threatened to send in ground forces.
Foreign and defence ministers of the leading international states backing different factions in the war-torn country met in separate meetings in Munich and Brussels following the collapse of the latest round of peace talks.
Both Russia and the United States demanded ceasefires in the long-running civil war so that the fight could be concentrated against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) - but each on their own, conflicting terms.

Senate passes bill to hit North Korea with harsher sanctions

(photo via The Guardian)
Seeking to derail North Korea's drive for nuclear weapons, Republican and Democratic senators set aside their partisan differences Wednesday to unanimously pass legislation aimed at starving Pyongyang of the money it needs to build an atomic arsenal.
The Senate approved the sanctions bill 96-0 after lawmakers repeatedly denounced Pyongyang for flouting international law by pursuing nuclear weapons.
Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., said for too long North Korea has been dismissed as a strange country run by irrational leaders. "It's time to take North Korea seriously," Menendez said.
The Senate bill, authored by Menendez and Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., targets North Korea's ability to finance the development of miniaturized nuclear warheads and the long-range missiles required to deliver them. The legislation also authorizes $50 million over the next five years to transmit radio broadcasts into North Korea, purchase communications equipment and support humanitarian assistance programs.

Credibility of Russian Media Lacking in Baltic Nations


Washington, D.C. - Russian speakers in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania rank Kremlin-backed media as the least trustworthy among international, Russian Federation and domestic news sources, according to research presented by the Broadcasting Board of Governors yesterday.
 
In addition, only those survey respondents who considered Russian-backed media to be credible showed a majority support for President Vladimir Putin's domestic and international policies. In the three Baltic nations and Moldova, consuming Russian-backed media did not correlate with support for Russia's policies.
 
The BBG data found that domestic media ranked first in trustworthiness in Estonia (80 percent) and Latvia (79 percent). International media took first in Lithuania (74 percent) and in Moldova there was a statistical tie between international media (45 percent), Russian-backed media (42 percent) and domestic media (42 percent).
 
The findings were unveiled at Thursday's research briefing conducted by the BBG and Gallup on the consumption and influence of Russian-language media in Russia's periphery.
Gallup's World Poll data, which was conducted in 2014 shortly after the Russian annexation of Crimea and hence over a year before the BBG data in the Baltics and Moldova was collected, examined how respondents in 12 former Soviet Union countries followed news about Russian actions in Ukraine and Crimea. Data showed the majority of respondents followed the events very closely and reported finding Russian media reliable. For some, that translated into support for some Russian policies. According to the 2014 Gallup findings, in seven of the 10 countries surveyed, the majority of respondents who consumed both "Western" and Russian media showed support for Russia's annexation of Crimea. "Western" media as defined in the Gallup World Poll survey did not specifically include or exclude U.S. international media, according to Gallup presenter Neli Esipova.
 
Since this survey was initiated, the BBG language services at Voice of America (VOA) and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) have added or expanded more than 35 new programs on multiple media platforms in Russian, Ukrainian, and other languages to reach new audiences in the former Soviet space and around the world.
 
Jeffrey Trimble, Deputy Director for the International Broadcasting Bureau, outlined the BBG's strategy in the region and highlighted the flag-ship program Current Time, a daily 30-minute Russian-language television news program produced by VOA and RFE/RL. Current Time is now on the air in nine countries via 25 media outlets. The European version airs in Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Lithuania, and Latvia, with segments of the program airing in Israel. A Central Asia version airs in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan. Weekend Current Time programs -- "Itogi" by VOA and "Nedelya" by RFE/RL -- are on the air as well. Current Time also reaches Russian-speaking news seekers worldwide via digital platforms curated by RFE/RL's DIGIM team, which was launched in September 2015 and which produces and disseminates innovative cross-platform digital content, promotes the Current Time brand in the digital space, and engages Russian-language audiences on social media.
Russian authorities do not allow placement of Current Time on domestic television stations.
Presenters at the research briefing cautioned that comparing the Gallup World Poll survey and the Gallup survey conducted for BBG was problematic, as the surveys targeted different countries, were conducted over a year apart and had several methodological differences, including question wording, context and sampling.

A video and briefing documents are available on the BBG website

Putin supports the idea of creating a single radio protocol

(via Twitter.Com)
Russian President Vladimir Putin has supported the idea of creating a single radio protocol used by departments. He stated this at a meeting with businessmen, members of club leaders, the correspondent of "Gazety.Ru".

As the president of one of the participants of the meeting, Russia buys various innovative radio equipment in all departments, "but no one will agree that they work in a single standard, a single protocol."

"I propose to create on the basis of the ASI (Agency for Strategic Initiatives), a working group to optimize the introduction of the single radio standard for the whole of Russia," he said.

Putin supported the idea. "There are good developments, and together with the special services and the concerned agencies to come to the result, I agree," said the head of state.

Australian Shortwave Callsigns VLG: The Mystery of the Missing Island

Maunganui (NZ Shipping)
Back one hundred and one years ago, the three letters VLG were listed in a wireless publication as the callsign for a wireless transmitter aboard the passenger/cargo ship Maunganui.  This ship was built in Glasgow Scotland for the Union Steamship Company of New Zealand in 1911, it was named in honor of a high hill in the North Island of New Zealand, and it was in service between North America and the South Pacific.
            During World War 1, the Maunganui served as a troop ship; and during World War 2, it served as a hospital ship.  This veritable liner was sold to Greece in 1948, and then just nine years later, it was broken up for scrap in Savonna, Italy.
            The callsign VLG was allotted to the Maunganui around the beginning of the First World War, and it was still in use thereon into the early 1920s.  However in 1924, this same callsign was then applied to a new wireless station that was installed onto the small island of Mangaia in the Cook Islands.
            The island called Mangaia, the most southerly in the Cook Island archipelago in the South Pacific, was discovered by the English Captain James Cook in 1777.  It is an almost circular island with a total area of around 20 square miles.  This island, with its central volcanic plateau, is ringed with a 200 ft high circle of fossilized coral and there is also a fresh water lake towards the south of the island.
            The total population these days is shown as less than 700; and their Polynesian language is very similar to the Maori of New Zealand.
            Quite near to the island of Mangaia was another island known as Tuanaki.  Back in the early 1840s, this mystery island was shown on some maps of the South Pacific, and it was located about one day of sailing, south from Mangaia.    
            It is reported that an English sailor visited Mangaia in 1842, and that he stayed on the island for almost a week.  The island was known and reported by European administrators who were serving on other Pacific islands.  Whalers during that period also reported their visits to the island.
            It was also reported historically that there was occasional trade between the two islands, Mangaia and Tuanaki, and that the languages of the two islands were almost identical.  However, Christian missionaries who made subsequent visits to the area were never able to relocate this mystery island.  There are some people living on Mangaia, and on other islands in the Cook archipelago also, who claim ancestry to Tuanaki, that at least one of their ancestors migrated from Tuanaki in earlier years.
            So what happened to the mystery island known as Tuanaki?  Did it really exist, or was it simply a matter of mis-identification of Mangaia itself, or of another island out there somewhere?  Geologists and historians consider that if the island did indeed exist a couple of hundred years ago, then it simply disappeared beneath the waters of the ocean in some unidentified cataclysmic event, maybe a seismic collapse with an underwater landslide.
            Going back to Mangaia itself, we find that the local wireless station installed in 1924, VLG, was operated for just a few years by local personnel who had an aptitude for practical workmanship.
            The next known usage of the callsign VLG was for a new 10 kW shortwave transmitter that was installed at the regional shortwave station located near Lyndhurst in Victoria, Australia.  At the time, the building in use at Lyndhurst was the second structure, dating from 1935.
            The new transmitter at Lyndhurst was originally intended for use as a replacement for the quite old and low powered VLR, with just 2 kW at the time.  However, because of wartime exigencies, the new unit was taken into service as an additional shortwave transmitter for both the ABC and Radio Australia.  
            The new VLG was inaugurated on June 21, 1941 under the callsign VLR.  However, because of confusion due to the fact that there were now two transmitters on the air under the same callsign, often simultaneously but with different programming, the new transmitter was allotted a new callsign, VLG.  Thus the new 10 kW VLR3 on 11880 kHz became VLG5, and the new VLR4 on 15230 kHz became VLG6; and the date for this change in callsign was August 24, (1941).
            On June 1, 1951, the numeric designator, the suffix number, was changed to identify the MHz band.  Thus for example, VLG2 on 9540 kHz was redesignated as VLG9.  Then ten years later again, Radio Australia discontinued the usage of callsigns and the callsign VLG, or just G, became a line callsign for the program feed from the studios in Melbourne to a transmitter at Lyndhurst.
            In the late 1950s, a new building was constructed over the old, and then the old was removed.  Three new transmitters were installed, one for each of the ABC program services VLR, VLG & VLH.  These three transmitters, manufactured by RCA in the United States, were originally intended for installation in battleships, but after the end of the war, they were declared surplus. 
            In 1966, eight new transmitters at 10 kW each were installed progressively at Lyndhurst, and any transmitter could be be activated for any of the broadcast services.  In this way a rolling daily schedule was maintained with usually six transmitters on the air at anyone time, on behalf of the ABC Home Services, Radio Australia, and the chonohertz VNG time signals.
            In 1970, the ABC dropped the usage of VLG as a shortwave program relay of their mediumwave programming, thus leaving VLG, or G, for sole use by Radio Australia.
            The Lyndhurst radio station was closed on June 12, 1987, and three of the youngest transmitters were removed and re-installed at the mediumwave transmitter site for 4QN at coastal Brandon in Queensland.  When the shortwave transmitters at Brandon were taken into service two years later in 1989, the VLG program feed from Melbourne was fed into one of the transmitters for coverage of New Guinea and the Pacific.
            Many are the varieties of QSLs that shortwave listeners received from VLG, the ABC Home Service and the Radio Australia Overseas Service at Lyndhurst, and also from VLG at Brandon.
