REVIEW: MIDXB #56, March 1997

(Time - UTC, Frequencies - kHz) This issue opens with Russian translation of the article "DX and the international community" by Charlie Coutts printed in the January edition of "Budapest International". Then the next part of our Russian language version of "Digital signals" by Stan Scalsci and Mike Chace is followed. In the "Russia's Air" this time: - many changes on 1044 in Moscow; - Voice of Russia new time schedule; - local stations from Russia on SW. "Band news: MW-LW" includes: - pirates from Greece; - local programs from Spain; - Radio Netherlands relays; - BSKSA on a new frequency; - new data from Ukraine. "Band news: SW" includes: - broadcasts from ABC Northern Territory Service; - changes in Radio Georgia minority service; - High Adventure Ministry broadcasts from Georgia; - English language programs from Congo; - changes in frequency schedule of Radio Veritas Asia. "Out of band news" is our new heading (we don't know if it will be regular) where we compiled new in general: - will Radio Australia continue to broadcast; - BBC sold their transmitting complex; - CBC has now stable financing for the near 5 years; - VOA has now its address in Russia. "Catches in the air" covers this time frequencies between 177 and 17570. "QSL-corner" as usual is full of useful information including this time addresses of VNG, Radio Ruaiba, Permskoye Radio, Gorno-Altaiskoye Radio. In "Technique of Reception" we examine our domestic communication receiver "R-326" and "R-326M01". "Schedules" presents Radio New Zealand International; Radio Tajikistan; CBS from Taiwan. In "Utility broadcasting" we began to publish table of prefixes, then a little bit information about Saint lys Radio (France). We welcome information, comments and suggestions on our bulletin.
