Edison Research, per gli americani al volante la radio tradizionale batte lo 
streaming 4 a 1

Il "grafico del giorno" del sito di data journalism Statista si basa su 
informazioni Edison e conferma il ruolo maggioritario che la piattaforma 
radiofonica analogica (più forse qualche decina di migliaia di apparecchi HD 
Radio, ma i dati non lo dicono) continua ad avere tra gli automobilisti 
americani. L'ascolto tradizionale della radio è in declino a fronte di una 
maggiore penetrazione dell'ascolto online, ma a bordo dell'auto, almeno negli 
Stati Uniti, funziona ancora benissimo. L'84% dei guidatori accende 
l'autoradio, a fronte di un modesto 21% che consuma contenuti streaming. Più o 
meno la stessa percentuale utilizza servizi satellitari, che tra parentesi 
registrano un record: l'operatore SiriusXM proprio oggi ha dichiarato il 
superamento della soglia di 30 milioni di abbonati dopo averne raccolti 465 
mila solo nel primo trimestre del 2016.
Probabilmente questo zoccolo duro a quattro ruote vale anche per l'Italia, 
anche se mi piacerebbe avere dei dati più precisi. La questione del consumo di 
servizi streaming come le Web radio anche in mobilità è fondamentalmente 
legata alla copertura offerte dalle reti mobili e al costo percepito da chi 
ascolta. Nell'ormai ultradecennale lotta tra modello tradizionale e 
piattaforme IP (broadcast versus broadbad), un aspetto non trascurabile 
continua a essere quello della sostanziale gratuità della radiofonia che 
abbiamo conosciuto finora e i costi che nel caso delle Webradio sono ripartiti 
tra chi trasmette e chi riceve (ok, chi riceve sul proprio telefonino deve 
considerare il fatto che questo dispositivo serve per un intero portafoglio di 
servizi - telefonate, messaggistica, navigazione, ascolto in streaming - che 
non può non avere un costo). Su bacini di ascolto molto estesi il modello 
broadcast è senza dubbio vincente, tanto da essere adottato anche da sistemi 
di distribuzione come LTE, con i protocolli MBMS, Multimedia Broadcast 
Multicast Service (a proposito, Fabrizio Mondo, inventore di Zeptle - 
http://www.zeptle.com/it/ -, la piattaforma di "orientamento" e accesso alle 
radio Web e tradizionali, ha meritoriamente tradotto la corrispondente voce 
per Wikipedia italiana - 
https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multimedia_Broadcast_Multicast_Service ).
Personalmente non vedo ragione di porre ostacoli all'adozione di modelli 
distributivi alternativi, ma nemmeno per credere che il futuro del broadcast, 
analogico o digitale che sia, debba necessariamente essere segnato, se non 
forse sul lunghissimo termine. In ogni caso è una discussione interessante, e 
l'online ha dalla sua un indubbio primato: quello della democratizzazione. 
Fare radio su Web è più che mai alla portata di tutto, mentre soprattutto in 
Italia, la radio convenzionale è ancora troppo ingabbiata in (non)regolamenti 
che favoriscono solo chi trasmette già. E si sta visibilmente annoiando, visti 
certi contenuti.
 
 
Ancora onde corte: World Christian Broadcasting inaugura il nuovo impianto in 
Madagascar.

Di questi tempi, l'inaugurazione di un nuovo impianto emittente in onde corte
è una notizia al tempo stesso positiva e controcorrente. Il giorno di Pasqua,
hanno preso il via le trasmissioni del nuovo impianto che World Christian
Broadcasting ( http://www.worldchristian.org/ )ha costruito in Madagascar, nei
pressi della località di Mahajanga, sulla costa ovest della grande isola-
nazione africana. Siamo sulla costa opposta, e a oltre 500 km di distanza,
dagli storici impianti che Radio Nederland realizzò qui all'inizio degli anni
70.
La stazione è conosciuta come Madagascar World Voice e trasmette i programmi
religiosi dell'organizzazione religiosa no profit basata in Tennessee, la
stessa che dal 1983 gestisce, in Alaska, la stazione KNLS. Pur essendo di
ispirazione evangelica, World Christian Broadcasting non appartiene alla
categoria degli radio-predicatori aggressivi e integralisti, i suoi programmi
sono piuttosto animati da una visione spirituale dell'individuo e della
famiglia, ma senza le fiamme infernali e la generale chiusura rispetto alle
vanità del mondo (KNLS ha anche programmi musicali, per esempio) che rendono
insopportabili le trasmissioni millenaristiche di Brother Stair
(http://overcomerministry.org/ ). La caratteristica precipua di WCB è la
volontà di trasmettere in molte lingue, soprattutto verso l'Asia e la Russia
asiatica.
Raggiungere questo obiettivo trasmettendo dall'Alaska, con i limiti di potenza
imposti dalle regolamentazione americana, è oggettivamente complicato e da
anni l'organizzazione meditava di affiancare a KNLS un'altra stazione. Poi,
una quindicina d'anni fa, il governo locale mise a disposizione un'area non
lontana dalla costa e anche se la costruzione di Madagascar World Voice ha
richiesto dieci milioni di dollari di spesa (solo i due trasmettitori da 100
kW fabbricati ex novo costerebbero un milione l'uno) e il superamento di varie
difficoltà politiche e burocratiche, il lancio di oggi sembra essere un

successo. La trasmissione in cinese che ho ascoltato poco fa, alle 21:30 utc,
su 11615 kHz, è di rara intensità (considerando anche le condizioni di ascolto
in città e il basso costo del piccolo ricevitore cinese utilizzato), anche
considerando la buona posizione e la "freschezza" degli impianti. Per la
schedule completa http://www.worldchristian.org/MWV_Frequency_Schedule.htm .
Tra smantellamenti e chiusure, le onde corte dimostrano ancora una volta
l'efficacia di un medium che forse è il caso di riscoprire.

Latest Shortwave News:

BBC World Service Mid-Winter broadcast to Antarctica
SDRUno software to be released for SDRPlay
Euro 2016 on Shortwave
 

 


BBC World Service Mid-Winter broadcast to Antarctica


The BBC World Service’s yearly broadcast to Antarctica will take place
on the 21st of June from 2130-2200UTC. The broadcast is aimed at the
members of staff working at the four British bases on Antarctica with an
intended audience of just 44 people. The BBC explains how theses are
split across the bases:

“There are just eight among the seals and penguins of King Edward
Point on South Georgia and only four at nearby Bird Island. The biggest
base, Rothera, on the Antarctic Peninsula houses 19 winterers – the
population can reach 100 in the Summer. Furthest south still is Halley
VI on the Brant ice shelf where the Sun does not rise for many weeks and
temperatures of -30° C are made worse by bitter winds. But life is more
comfortable for the 13 lucky residents because they are in the
futuristic new modules of Halley VI – the previous five bases have
either been dismantled or even lost beneath the ice.”

The broadcast which is timed to fall on the winter solstice for the
Southern Hemisphere will be broadcast on the following shortwave
frequencies:

7360 kHz, from Ascension Island, 207 degrees
5985 kHz, from Woofferton UK, 184 degrees
6035 kHz, from Dhabayya UAE, 203 degrees

Thanks to Dejan Calovski from the BBC World Service audience relations
for confirming that these three frequencies will be used. A test took
place on the 16th of June at 2130 which used the above three frequencies
and also 9590 kHz from Woofferton at 182 degrees.
 

 

 

 


SDRUno software to be released for SDRPlay

The popular SDR Play software defined radio which has been discussed in
some of Akos Czermann’s articles included in past episodes of DigiDX
will soon have its own dedicated software with the imminent release of
SDRUno.

The software has come about after the high-end SDR software Studio1 was
purchased by the SDRPlay team earlier this year. Some features of Studio
1 included:

Multiple application instance and multiple virtual receiver concept
Modular user interface for multiple monitors Dual stage AGC Four Notch
Filters Versatile Synchronous AM mode

SDRUno will continue to work on any SDR’s using the ExtIO file
interface but some features will be exclusive to SDRPlay users. At time
of publication of DigiDX the re was no confirmed release date or
information on pricing but this should be available on
http://www.sdrplay.com/
in the coming days.

 

 

 

Euro 2016 on Shortwave

The Euro 2016 football tournament currently taking place in France has
lead to live commentary of matches on several shortwave stations.

Radio France International have been covering France matches in French
and from looking at schedules for the next week it seems one of the two
final group games each night at 1900UTC.

Radio Exterior Espana have covered several matches over the first week
of the tournament in Spanish and it is expected that this will continue
especially with matches involving Spain.

As part of the SportsWorld programme on BBC World Service there have
been several live matches commentaries in English as a simulcast of BBC
Radio 5 Live. It is expected that coverage will be expanded as the
tournament reaches the latter stages.



Upcoming relays and special broadcasts:

VOA Radiogram will be on air this weekend on the following frequencies,

Thanks to listener Merkouris for creating the special experimental
version of DigiDX 17 which has been broadcast since Thursday on 6070kHz
at 1830 and 0530. This episode will continue to be broadcast on 6070kHz
for the next few days, it starts in MFSK32 but also includes:

1500 Hz  -  Olivia 16-500 starts at 07:10 (no RxID)
1950 Hz  -  MFSK16 starts at 07:20 (RxID)
2350 Hz  -  Olivia 8-250 starts at 07:50 (no RxID)

He also made changes to the e-QSL cards image with the text colour
changed to black and the background image covers only behind the bottom
half of the QSL.

The image was also divided vertically into three parts  -  The text in the
left section is sharply anti-aliased, in the middle section is aliased
and in the right section is smoothly anti-aliased.

Last week we included the same image as a JPG and a PNG file, however
most reception reports showed no difference between the two images.
However Roger has pointed out “FLDIGI must transmit (in both cases)
image informationen with a resolution of 466x266 [the size of the image]
pixels. The compressions of the two source images plays (theoretically)
no role”

Mark Braunstein in Virginia, USA also wrote “I can't image that the
source image (JPG, PNG, etc.) matters all that much. The encoding used
during transmission is just analog FM (much like a weather FAX) with no
error correction so there's little that you can do to improve the image
during bursts of noise and fades.”

Frank from Pirna in Germany received DigiDX 17 experimental version.
Image he received at the beginng of transmission was very "puzzled". See:

http://www.rhci-online.net/radiogram/VoA_Radiogram_2016-06-11.htm#ANTIALIASING

He wrote to reports@digidx.uk
: "Image of DigiDX 17 I sent 2 days ago looked
like a puzzle. The reason of this might be, that I was working on PC while
receiving image (opening new instances of fldigi etc.) Todays image was
received in very good quality without working on PC during reception."

Regarding the fonts used in the e-QSL images, Mark Hirst from the UK has
wrote to say “Before we had gorgeous colour screens, simple bitmapped
fonts were the norm for computers, typified by Chicago on the first
Macs, and Fixedsys on early versions of Windows (I have first hand
experience of both!). Since they come from an age without anti-aliasing
and could be used on basic black and white LCD screens, would they work
better ?”

Using Mark’s idea for testing simple fonts to improve readability when
noise has made an image hard to read, this weeks e-QSL card will be
created in the Fixedsys font.

We conclude this broadcast with this weeks E-QSL card, sent as an MFSK32 image.

Bird Brain? Thanks for the Compliment

Smita Nordwall
June 14, 2016

Calling someone a "bird brain" used to be an insult. Not anymore.

A study published online Tuesday in the Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences found that birds have more densely
packed neurons in their brains than other animals, contributing
to cognitive ability on par with that of primates.

"For a long time, having a 'bird brain' was considered to be a
bad thing. Now it turns out that it should be a compliment," said
the study's senior author, Suzana Herculano-Houzel, a Vanderbilt
University neuroscientist.

Parrots and crows have cognitive abilities similar to those of
primates, the study found.

The birds can make tools and use them to obtain food and solve
other problems. They also can recognize themselves in mirrors and
plan for future needs  -  cognitive capabilities only primates were
previously thought to have possessed.

The findings contribute to the ongoing theory that, although
brain structures may be different in classes of animals, it is
not necessarily the size  -  or even the structure  -  that makes a
brain more advanced. It may be the contents.

An earlier study found that trained pigeons can detect malignant
tumors in mammograms with the pinpoint accuracy of human
radiologists.

Herculano-Houzel and her co-author, Pavel Nemec, a researcher at
Charles University in Prague, found that birds generally have
more neurons than some mammals, but parrots and songbirds packed
twice as many neurons on average than primate brains, "indicating
that avian brains have higher neuron-packing densities than
mammalian brains," the study said.

"That explains why they exhibit levels of cognition at least as
complex as primates."

Although the link between intelligence and the number of neurons
has not been firmly established, the scientists believe that the
brains of birds with the same number of neurons as much larger
mammal brains can potentially produce higher "cognitive power"
per kilogram.

Found: Missing Jupiters

JoEllen McBride
June 14, 2016

Two suns setting on the horizon conjures up images of Star Wars,
and Luke Skywalker on his home planet, in a galaxy far, far away.
And since the launch of NASA's Kepler mission in 2009, scientists
have discovered almost a dozen planets orbiting two stars right
here in our own galaxy.

But their recent discovery of a very large planet is of
particular interest.

Different from the rest

Researchers at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and San Diego
State University have discovered the first Jupiter-sized planet
orbiting in the habitable zone of a binary system. It is 3,700
light-years away and about the same age as Earth. "This one is
different from the others," William Welsh, co-investigator of the
project tells VOA. It's called Kepler-1647b and it's "telling us
there's a whole bunch of planets like this out there that we
haven't seen before."

Previous research has identified planets the size of Saturn and
Neptune orbiting very close to double stars. But there is a
noticeable lack of Jupiter-sized planets in close orbits. Richard
Nelson, Professor of Astronomy and Mathematics at Queen Mary
University of London, and a colleague did some research that
tells us why. Giant planets whose orbits are too close to the
central stars "would literally get kicked out of the system,"
Nelson explains. His simulations showed that if Jupiter-sized
planets were going to survive, they would need to be farther away
from the stars. So Kepler-1647b is exactly where it should be,
according to his calculations.

But astronomers weren't seeing them before now. Fifty percent of
stars like our Sun come in pairs and those solar systems are
expected to have planets of all sizes, just like single stars.
The Jupiter-sized planets are really hard to find due to their
long orbits, explains Welsh. "When it takes three years to get
one transit, you're not going to get many of them." The fact that
the planet is orbiting two stars instead of one doesn't make the
job any easier.

The Kepler spacecraft detects planets when they pass between us
and their star. With one star, it's simple enough: you wait until
the light from the star dims due to a planet passing in front of
it and you're done.

But two stars locked in orbit move like two ice skaters holding
hands and spinning. Their light output changes as they pass in
front of each another. Now throw in a third, much tinier skater,
like a mouse, sliding around the first two. There will be times
when the mouse seems to move in the same direction as our
skaters, and times when it looks like it's moving in the opposite
direction. In Kepler-1647b's case, when the planet moves between
the stars and us, it doesn't produce one single dip but many
different ones, long and short, deep and shallow, depending on
its position relative to the stars. Astronomers need lots of
measurements at different points in the three year orbit to
verify that the dips match what is expected when a Jupiter-sized
planet orbits two stars.

Warm Jupiter

Kepler-1647b orbits its two stars at a slightly farther distance
than Jupiter circles the Sun. Jupiter is hundreds of millions of
kilometers from the habitable zone in our solar system. But
having two stars similar to the Sun pushes the habitable zone
outwards, enveloping Kepler-1647b in its warmth.

Unfortunately, Kepler-1647b is a gas giant, so extraterrestrial
beings probably wouldn't be able to survive on the planet, much
less enjoy that double sunset. But any moons orbiting the planet
could be suitable for life. Current technology cannot detect
moons around planets outside the solar system but astronomers are
working on it, according to Welsh.

And that conjures up even more Star Wars imagery, in this case of
Endor, with its Ewok-populated moon. Something like it,
scientists predict, may in fact exist in our own galaxy.

North Dakota Voters Overturn Corporate Farming Allowances

VOA News
June 15, 2016

North Dakota voters overturned legislation Tuesday that loosened
Depression-era regulations on corporate farming in the midwestern
state.

A law colloquially known as the "ham and cheese law" was passed
last year, exempting pork and dairy operations from the state's
longtime ban on corporate farming.

Supporters of the law said that it would bring more money to the
state by boosting the two dwindling industries.

But opponents spoke up for family farming, arguing that local
farms would not be able to compete with corporations who would
have no stake in the local communities in which they would
operate. The North Dakota Farmers Union unanimously voted to
bring the legislature to referendum, just one week after it was
passed.

More than 70% of voters Tuesday voted to overturn the law,
keeping North Dakota free of corporate farms.
