Berlin's Teufelsberg listening station to be historical monument

        An abandoned Cold War listening station in the forests
        outside Berlin will now receive state protection. The site
        has become a popular destination for more adventurous
        tourists.

Alistair Walsk
3 November 2018

A former NSA spy station outside Berlin will receive state
protection as a historical monument, authorities confirmed on
Saturday.

The iconic buildings on the western edge of Berlin, as well as
the hill called Teufelsberg that they stand upon, will be placed
under a preservation order, state curator Christoph Rauhut
confirmed to the Tagesspiegel newspaper. A spokesman for the
Senate Cultural Administration also confirmed the news to the DPA
news agency.

The step was officially announced on Monday.

Authorities said the order does not mean the site will have to be
reconstructed as it once was but will instead ensure its
preservation in the current state.

What is Teufelsberg?

During the Cold War, US intelligence wanted to build a listening
station in West Berlin to intercept Soviet radio communications.
Testing throughout West Berlin revealed Teufelsberg, a manmade
hill in the Grunewald forest, had ideal conditions for such a
center.

In 1963, the Americans built Field Station Berlin atop the hill.
The station consisted of a series of white towers, buildings and
domes. What exactly happened inside is still classified — until
at least 2020 — but operations to intercept and jam Soviet
communications continued until the fall of the Berlin Wall in
1989. The station was then shut down and stripped of its
equipment.

Since then it has stood in ruin outside Berlin, becoming a
thriving hub for graffiti artists and an offbeat site for
tourists. Various efforts to redevelop the site have fallen
through. The current owner charges tourists to enter the site,
but in 2015 one of the prime drawcards of the site, the main
listening tower, was shut down for safety reasons.

The hill itself is of interest, too. When Hitler came to power,
he wanted to build a university faculty for military technology
on the site. It never came to fruition and was demolished during
the war. The area was then used as a dumping site for rubble from
the ruins of Berlin after the war. It eventually reached 120
meters (400 feet) and was covered with dirt and trees to give it
a more natural appearance.

From Radio France International:

New Caledonia votes to stay with France

4 November 2018

Voters in New Caledonia rejected independence for the Pacific
archipelago in a referendum on Sunday, with just over 56%
choosing to keep ties with the mainland in a closely-watched test
of support for France in one of its most remote territories.

On the final count, 56.4 percent of people had rejected the
proposition that New Caledonia become independent, in a clear but
smaller-than-expected victory for loyalists to the mainland.

As the results came in, French President Emmanuel Macron spoke of
his "immense pride" that the Pacific islanders had voted to
remain part of the French Republic.

"The majority of Caledonians have chosen France: it's a sign of
confidence in the French republic, in its future and its values,"
Macron said in a televised address from the Élysée Palace.

The landmark referendum had been promised as part of a deal
signed two decades ago to end a violent campaign by separatists
from the indigenous Kanak people.

It was seen as a test of the appeal of remaining part of France
for such far-flung territories, which are heavily dependent on
state handouts but where many feel overlooked by Paris.

Located some 18,000 kilometres (11,000 miles) from the French
mainland, New Caledonia is home to a quarter of the world's known
supplies of nickel -- a vital electronics component -- and is a
strategic foothold for France in the Pacific.

Some 175,000 people were eligible to vote, with officials
reporting turnout at over 80%.

Some polling stations in Noumea, the capital, closed about an
hour late because they had large lines of people still waiting to
vote at the planned closing time.

A previous referendum in 1987 was undermined after Kanak's
boycotted the vote claiming the terms of voter eligibility were
unfair. This time round only residents of 20 years or longer can
vote, excluding many white European migrants with a weak
connection to the territory.

The village of Farino was the first to declare, voting by a
margin of 9 to 1 against independence, with nearly 95% of
registered voters casting ballots.

But support for independence from France was much stronger in
areas with a large indigenous population, with the vote "playing
out largely along ethnic lines", said FRANCE 24's correspondent
Jack Hewson.

In his televised address, Macron said his government would be
meeting with Caledonian leaders in the coming weeks, with Prime
Minister Édouard Philippe and Overseas Minister Annick Girardin
due in Noumea on Monday.

There were fears the referendum could inflame tensions between
Kanaks, who tend to favour independence, and the white
population, which boiled over into deadly violence in the 1980s.

The quasi-civil war claimed more than 70 lives. It led to the
1998 Noumea Accord which paved the way for the steady devolution
of powers as well as Sunday's referendum.

Under the 1998 deal, two further referendums on independence can
still be held before 2022.

From Radio Free Asia:

North Korean Supreme Guard Command Officer Purged for Listening
to RFA

7 November 2018

An officer of North Korea's elite Supreme Guard Command (also
known as Unit 963) was reportedly purged last month for having
listened to an RFA broadcast.

Sources say the officer, a member of the Command's signal corps,
was caught listening to RFA while on patrol. He was discovered by
another officer.

A source from Pyongyang told RFA's Korean Service on November 3
that "the officer was checking the communication center of a mine
site, specifically to test a radio transmitter and receiver."

"He tuned in to the specific frequency for RFA and was caught,"
said the source.

"The purged officer is from Pyongsong, South Pyongan province.
He's in his mid-20s and [prior to the incident] had been
recognized for his loyalty and exemplary adherence to
principles," the source said.

"He had been in charge of the Supreme Guard Command's
communications for quite a while, but after he was caught by his
colleague, it was reported and he just disappeared," the source
said.

The Washington-based RFA broadcasts in nine languages to six
countries seen as lacking free and independent media. Like most
of the six countries, North Korea bans the outlet.

Consequences

The consequences for this guard's illegal activity extended
beyond the individual himself. The whole command was punished.

"After the incident, the Supreme Guard Command was closely
investigated by the Organization and Guidance Department of the
[Korean] Workers' Party," the source said. "They were under close
surveillance for about a week and are still being reorganized,"
added the source.

As a result of the investigation other officers in the elite
fighting force have also gone missing.

"Some of the guys who were guarding the Workers' Party Committee
and Kumsusan Palace of the Sun were also purged, but there is no
confirmed information about how many and who they might be," the
source said.

The purge was conducted on direct orders from the top.

"On October 20, [Kim Jong Un] delivered a special directive to
the Organization and Guidance Department saying they were in
charge of investigating the Supreme Guard Command and if they
were to find anything, the directive suggested harsh punishment,"
the source said.

"[They] are in serious trouble right now," said the source.

Another source, also from Pyongyang briefly explained the history
of purges in Unit 963.

"Back in the days of Kim Il Sung, there were two divisions in the
Guard Command. The first division was charged with protecting Kim
Il Sung and the second, his son, Kim Jong Il," the source said.

"But once Kim Il Sung died, the first division was thoroughly
investigated and many of the guys were purged," said the source.

Soviet-groomed Kim Il Sung founded North Korea in 1948 and ruled
until his death in 1994, when his son, Kim Jong Il, took over and
ruled until his death in 2011. The latter Kim's son, Kim Jong Un
is the third generation of the family dynasty that rules
Pyongyang.

"The current Guard Command has near-absolute power, as they are
in charge of Kim Jong Un's security and protection, but now they
are being investigated [because of the incident]," the source
said. "But I doubt the officer listening to American radio is the
real reason for the investigation. It all seems fishy to me."

The source recalled how similar this was to previous purges under
Kim Jong Un.

"Since [he] took power, the Organization and Guidance Department
looked into the General Political Bureau. [Just as they did then]
they will reorganize the Guard Command's existing structure by
getting rid of people they don't like," the source said.

After the Korean-language version of this story was published,
South Korea's Ministry of National Defense told RFA Wednesday
that they would look into the impact of foreign broadcasting on
the North Korean military. Seoul's Ministry of Unification told
RFA that they are currently reviewing the matter.

Leejin Jun. Written in English by Eugene Whong.

Slow Scan Radio November 7, 2018, Episode 14

Last week there was a lot of confusion about the starting time of the show. That morning it became clear that a stations ORS, targetting an African audience would be in Slow Scan Radio's time slot on teh same frequency, causing heavy QRM to Slow Scan Radio.

After that it wasn't clear wether the show would (have to) be postponed half an hour or an hour. It turned out to be an hour. To add insult to injury this was the first time the show ran at winter time, so that made the confusion complete.

I really hope (and do my best) we will do better this time, and the next ones to come.
