*****I *may* have a DX test on 890 from SC set up for us - but right
now, that's in the planning stage. The engineer, a Powell E. Way,
requests that some DXers listen for a station he works at - WKDK-1240,
in Newberry, SC . He says he's there on Sunday mornings, like at 5am
ELT. He'd REALLY like to hear from DXers - the address I have is 3000
Hazel St. (or P.O. Box 753) Newberry, SC 29108, with a phone # of (864)
276-3337 - the phone # is from the '97 NRC log, so it may be out of
date. Please give it a listen if you can!
Also, if you hear a test, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know, via either e-mail
or in rec.radio.shortwave! And if you send a reception report to a
station, please remember to include return postage with your report...
Anker Petersen - anker.petersen@xxxxxxxxxx (via Pat Martin)
As friends to Jens Frost, it is my sad duty to inform you that Jens
suddenly passed away this Monday after a heart stroke.
I talked with him on phone last Friday where he confirmed his
participation in the small EDXC Conference on Nov 6 here in Copenhagen.
Yesterday I received a letter from him poststamped Monday with
contributions to the next ShortwaveNews. So for me it is hard to believe
that he is no longer, but his son-in-law, Per Soerensen told me so this
afternoon, and I promised to inform you.
Letters of condolences can be sent to his daughter and son-in-law,
Sonja Frost & Per Soerensen, Engvaenget 18, DK 2650 Hvidovre, Denmark.
In deep sorrow,

Does anyone know if KRVN-880 is still off frequency? One of one group
here is an ex-engineer from KRVN, back from the era when they moved from
1010 to 880 and went II-A.
I have a QSL card from them for 1010.
**Albert Lehr - Livermore CA - ALehr@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
KRVN is back within FCC limits at the moment. They were down on 879.962
kHz on 8/16/99. By 9/3/99 they had drifted down to 879.957. I found
them on 880.003 on 10/3/99. Tonight, 10/24/99 at 2130 PDT, they are on
880.012v kHz. If the trend continues, KRVN may be going astray on the
high side in the next few weeks.

Greetings to all. I'm looking for logging reports of longwave and
medium wave stations (150 to 2500 kHz) made between 8 and 25 October
1999. Stations outside the reporter's country are preferred (whether of
broadcast, utility, or 160-m amateur). Selected reports will be posted
under the Parallel DX Efforts heading on the Newfoundland DXpedition Web
Page: " http://members.xoom.com/MarkWA1ION/nfdxpage.htm "
Already reports from Germany, Brazil, and the United States ... both
coasts ... have been listed. Some additional European coverage as well
as DX from the Caribbean area (including south Florida), the Middle
East, South Africa, Japan, Hawaii, and the Australia / New Zealand
regions would round out the Parallel DX Efforts section nicely.
The National Radio Club book "Season of DXpeditions" gives a very
thorough treatment of the autumn 1996 period. Coverage includes the
legendary DXpeditions of DX teams in Cappahayden (Newfoundland), Sheigra
(Scotland), and Lemmenjoki (Finland) as well as many smaller, but still
significant, parallel efforts from around the world. See "
http://nrcdxas.org/catalog/ " for more information. Though the loggings
are 3 years old, some are still relevant. Always of value are the
discussions of operating techniques used on successful DXpeditions.
Jean Burnell, John Fisher, Neil Kazaross, and Al Merriman are still
working on the final version of the official 1999 Newfoundland
DXpedition report. It will be accessible from the Web page as soon as it
becomes available. Meanwhile, sit back and enjoy reading the reports
these guys have already provided.

NEWFOUNDLAND DXPEDITION VIII
I arrived back in Cappahayden long after sunset on 19 October, and
Neil Kazaross and Al Merriman wasted no time in telling me what I had
missed: excellent African signals! I didn't start DXing until after
0000 UTC, by which time the action was over for Africa. Nevertheless, I
found some good South American DX was available, so my quest for "new"
Brazilians and "deep-South Americans continued.
Yesterday (21 October) we found the European Beverage broken about
150 meters from the shack. I suspect this happened many days ago since
this wire had been giving sub par signals since the almost a week. This
was repaired and better, but not great, reception of Europe was once
again enjoyed, although conditions to Europe are not very good. I did
catch up a bit by logging Lesotho on 891 kHz, which the others had
bagged the previous night.
Correction first: It seems that there is indeed something wrong with
the number 13! I have been numbering this DXpedition Newfoundland XIII
when I mean VIII!
Now some logs (dates/times are UTC!). Sorry this is chronological,
I'm tight for time and this is easier!

The DXpedition is over. Al Merriman had said his goodbyes on
Saturday morning, and he started his long drive back to Virginia. Neil
Kazaross and I packed up the shack and brought in the antennas in the
fog and gentle drizzle of Sunday morning, 24 October. It was a welcome
change from the 100 km/h wind and the sheets of rain that had pounded us
the previous evening! I dropped Neil off at St. John's airport just
after noon, Newfoundland Time.
Conditions were auroral for the final two nights. In spite of having
a fully functional European antenna, it was largely ignored since the
action was from the south: Africa and South America. Again, I think we
landed some good ones!
The process of assembling a complete report is now beginning. I have
a lot of tapes to review, so modification of some of these logs is
inevitable. Also, I have a lot of possible IDs to listen to again, and
I have a number of more routine catches to include. I should stress
that the logs in these five reports are only my own, and the final
report should also contain material from the other three DXers, John
Fisher, Al Merriman, and Neil Kazaross. The final report will be
submitted for inclusion in the National Radio Club's "DX News," and
other clubs have expressed an interest in picking up this report, at
least in part. Also, the final report will be available on a new web
site, and it will include some Real Audio clips and, I hope, some
I thank the guys who make the trip up here to share in the DX. I
also wish to acknowledge the assistance of two virtual participants in
this DXpedition. I am very grateful to Werner Funkenhauser and Mark
Connelly, both veterans of previous Newfoundland DXpeditions, for
propagation forecasts, for parallel DX sessions, for their general
encouragement, and for posting these reports on their web sites.
Here are the logs. As always, comments and corrections would be much
appreciated! Dates/times are UTC, and the order is still chronological:

A couple of notes regarding local station happenings in the
Jacksonville, NC area.
530 and 1610 kHz: NC, Camp Lejeune. TISs appear to be on RS, with
simulcast of rebroadcast of NWS station in Newport, NC. First noted
10/20 at 0600 traveling to work. At SS, 1610 is hrd at a fair level
while 530 is covered by UNID Spanish - presumed R. Vision Cristiania on
535 as previously logged here. (MH-NC)
1580 WSMO? NC. Camp Lejeune? Noted an ad in local paper with reference
to a "WSMO 1580 AM" and "Classic Country Radio" as co-sponsor of
a local event. Ex-WWJV? Not hrd if on air - usually, I'm out of
the area from a bit before sunrise to after sunset. Didn't check
this weekend (10/23-24). Will f/up when on air and ID confirmed.
Nothing noted in FCC database. (MH-NC)

A logs made at the MARE DXpedition near Brighton Michigan. Receiver:
Sony ICF-2010. Antenna: Approximately 1000 foot beverage pointed south.
650 COLOMBIA, Antena Dos, Bogota 0228-0232 Ad for Cafe Sello Rojo,
sports, ID. Good. (Moore MI Oct 23)
720 Emisoras Unidas, Baranquilla 0233 String of ads mentioning
Barranquilla. Also heard at 0306 with an ad for the Loteria de
920.2 Emisora Fuentes, Cartagena 0145 ID and anmts. Fair in USB mode
to escape het and QRM. (Moore MI Oct 23)
1170 Caracol, Cartagena 0119-0123 Sports talk, ID, PSA by Corporacion
Nacional de Ahorro y Vivienda. Excellant and interference free
signal. (Moore MI Oct 23)
???? PANAMA Radio Reforma 0056-0105 Ads mentioning Chitre and definite
ID. Fair. Larry Russell had a better signal on his spiral loop
than I did on my 1000 foot southerly beverage! (Moore MI Oct 23)
750 VENEZUELA, Radio Caracas Radio 0245 Venezuelan baseball // 850
kHz. Fair. I've always wondered if Radio Caracas Radio has a
Department of Redundancy Department. (The reason for the
repitition is to distinguish it from Radio Caracas Television.)
(Moore MI Oct 23)
850 RV-850 Valencia 0040-0250+ Presumed the one with beisbol between
the Leones de Caracas and Aguilas de Zulia. The other YV on this
frequency is religous, so not likely to have this type of
programming. Noted usually on top with fair signals at various
times during this period. // 750 kHz. (Moore MI Oct 23)
940 UNID 0155 At three Latins mixing on this frequency. Heard one ad
giving prices in Bolivares (the Venezuelan currency). Punto Fijo
most likely. Poor. (Moore MI Oct 23)
1080 Radio Barcelona 0132-0135 ID given as I tuned in, then back to
baseball. // 1110. Fair. (Moore MI Oct 23)
1110 UNID 0123+ Venezuelan baseball // 1080 noted at various times.
Fair signal mixing with domestic station. Probably Carupano as it
is in the same net as Radio Barcelona. (Moore MI Oct 23)
920 COLOMBIA: Emisora Fuentes on 920.2v is one of the better heard
Colombians. BOGOTA, Colombia -- Gunmen dragged from his home and
shot to death a reporter who covered cock fights and town affairs
for a small radio station on the Caribbean coast, police said
Thursday. Rodolfo Flores, a 38-year-old reporter for Emisora
Fuentes radio, was shot three times in the head and discarded on
a rural highway, Lt. Col. Rodolfo Lopez, police commander in
northern Sucre state told The Associated Press. Police found the
body just after dawn Thursday near Flores' home town of San
Onofre - five hours after at least four men broke into the
journalist's residence, Lopez said in a telephone interview.
There was no immediate indication of motive in the second slaying
of a small-town journalist in just over a month in Colombia. On
Sept. 16, gunmen entered a bar and shot to death Guzman Quintero,
chief editor of a provincial newspaper in northern Valledupar
state, while he drank a beer with colleagues. With four
journalists killed in the line of duty last year and 47
assassinated since 1989, according to the New York-based
Committee to Protect Journalists, Colombia ranks among the
world's most dangerous places to practice the profession. Over
the years, threats and violence against the media have come from
a plethora of sources in the violent Andean nation-among them
drug traffickers, corrupt politicians, leftist rebels and right-
wing paramilitary groups. (The Associated Press Oct 22 via Ken

near the end, etc.) were played. Announcers mentioned that this
was the last test that this station was going to run. I got a

talk under WBZ, too late for much else. [Connelly*H-MA]

local WNSH during aurora. [Connelly*B-MA]

Once again this week I am substituting for Kim Elliott, on VOA
Communications World. There will be one 9-minute media news report on
the A-segment only, VOA News Now (not the half-hour version), UT
Saturday October 23, with four airings. I list the best frequency as
received here; there are many more, if you check http://www.trsc.com/cw
Hope you can listen. The script will be posted on the World of Radio

For those who've requested schematics of the Superphaser-1 antenna
phasing unit, go to the following URL: "
http://www.qsl.net/wa1ion/sph1/sph1.htm ". This brings up a page with a
link to a downloadable ZIP file. This file "superph1.zip" can then be
uncompressed to provide GIF diagrams of the Superphaser-1 circuitry.
Each drawing can be printed at the correct scaling to fit a standard
sheet of paper if a photo program such as Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft
Photo Editor is used.
I'm not presently building any of this hardware for sale. I always
encourage hams, SWL's, and other Dxers to build their own units.
Perhaps Kiwa or another manufacturer will make a good phasing unit
available in the USA and Canada. Europeans can buy products from
Wellbrook (UK). Modifying an MFJ-1026 (as noted on "
http://www.nordicdx.com/antenna/special/mfj1026.html") is another
Any serious DXer, especially medium wave types, shouldhave antenna
