Per distinguere tra ragione e retorica sul Web, "riaccendiamo" la radio della Guerra Fredda


La civiltà mediatica delle news in tempo reale ci sottopone a un autentico bombardamento di continui impulsi. Tanto che non sappiamo più distinguere tra
retorica e ragione. E se tornassimo a lezione di storia, in particolare quella, ricca di materiali d'archivio, della radiofonia internazionale? La sensata
proposta viene dai ricercatori della University of Bristol, che hanno dato vita al Connecting the Wireless World Project
(http://www.bristol.ac.uk/arts/research/global-radio-history/), una iniziativa che vuole analizzare la storia delle trasmissioni in onde corte, le antenate
della tv satellitare e di Internet, dal punto di vista del ruolo che l'emittenza internazionale ha avuto nel forgiare le relazioni tra le nazioni e la
politica domestica, in pace ma soprattutto durante nei lunghi anni del secondo conflitto mondiale prima e della Guerra fredda poi.
Il progetto mette insieme storici e massmediologi di Regno Unito, Germania, Olanda, Portogallo e Stati Uniti e come missione ha anche l'organizzazione di
eventi e seminari, l'ultimo dei quali ha avuto luogo il 15 settembre scorso presso la University of York sul tema "Knowing your enemy (and your friends):
Cultures of radio monitoring and surveillance" ( http://www.bristol.ac.uk/arts/research/global-radio-history/past-events/knowing-your-enemy-and-your-friends/#d.en.272614).

Al seminario ha dedicato un bellissimo post uno dei coordinatori di Connecting the wireless world, David Clayton: "Rhetoric versus
Reason: Why we need histories of radio surveillance and monitoring" (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/arts/research/global-radio-history/blog/2016/rhetoric-versus-reason.html)

Una buona parte dell'incontro era focalizzato sul ruolo storico degli uffici di monitoraggio delle trasmissioni internazionali e sugli archivi
di materiali generati sia dalle emittenti, sia dai governi che ne tracciavano le attività. Clayton cita in particolare Radio Free Europe, auspicando un
maggior sforzo di digitalizzazione e condivisione delle informazioni accumulate e archiviate in decenni di trasmissione.
Osservando il programma del seminario noto con grande piacere la presenza di una storica contemporanea italiana, Linda Risso, che dopo la laurea
all'Università di Genova è approdata a Cambridge per i suoi studi di dottorato e oggi è fellow di ricerca presso l'Institute of Historical Research di
Londra. La Risso, che a quanto leggo dai suoi tweet è stata recentemente accolta nel Comitato redazionale di "Cold War History"
(http://www.lse.ac.uk/IDEAS/Projects/CWSP/journal.aspx), è specializzata in storia delle relazioni tra paesi Nato e paesi dell'Est ed è intervenuta a York su
una questione decisamente attuale: "The role of radio
and Ukrainian/Russia dialogue in the 21st century". Sulla rivista Cold War History nel 2013 aveva pubblicato un articolo intitolato "Radio Wars,
broadcasting in the Cold War" che per nostra fortuna è disponibile online ( http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/fcwh20/13/2).

Latest Shortwave News:

B16 schedule change
Radio Afghanistan reactivated on shortwave
Broadcasters, Jammers Wreak Havoc on Amateur Radio Frequencies
Radio Romania does not support the cancellation of Romanian radio & TV license fee



B16 Schedule change

Coinciding with the end of Daylight saving in Europe on Sunday 30th
November, the B16 shortwave schedules also become active on this day.                                     <====== should be: Sunday, October 30th

This could lead to frequency or time changes for many shortwave
broadcasters as they adjust to conditions in the Northern hemisphere
winter or Southern hemisphere summer.

Most broadcasters schedules are included in the HFCC listings at
http://www.hfcc.org/data/b16/ however some stations like Radio Habana
Cuba or Radio Taiwan International are not members of the HFCC.

This episode of DigiDX includes a comparison of A16 vs B16 schedules for
several international broadcasters.
 

 


Radio Afghanistan reactivated on shortwave

Over the last few days many shortwave listeners in Europe have heard
Radio Afghanistan on 6100kHz broadcasting in English.

This frequency has also been announced on the English Radio Kabul stream
on the Radio Afghanistan website http://www.rta.org.af/.

Broadcasting from a transmitter at Yakatut near Kabul, the station was
last heard in April 2012 and had the following schedule:

Times/UTC  Times/AFT  Days   Language  Freq/kHz
1530-1600  2000-2030  Daily  English   7200 (had earlier been on 6102)
1600-1630  2030-2100  Daily  Urdu      7200 (had earlier been on 6102)



This weeks broadcasts have been heard around 1530 - 1630 UTC.
 

 


Broadcasters, Jammers Wreak Havoc on Amateur Radio Frequencies
 

The ARRL reports the battle in the amateur radio 7 MHz band continues
between Radio Eritrea and Radio Ethiopia, which is said to be jamming
the Eritrean broadcaster with broadband white noise

The problem for radio amateurs is that the battle is taking place in the
40 meter phone band — 7.145 and 7.175 MHz — with the jamming signal
reported by the IARU Region 1 Monitoring System (IARUMS) to be 20 kHz
wide on each channel.

The on-air conflict has been going on for years; Ethiopia constructed
new transmitting sites in 2008 and is said to use two or three of them
for jamming purposes. The interfering signals can be heard in North
America after dark. According to IARUMS Region 1 Coordinator Wolf Hadel,
DK2OM, Radio Eritrea is airing separate programs on each frequency.

He said in the IARUMS September newsletter that telecommunications
regulators in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland have been informed, so
they could file official complaints.

Radio Romania does not support the cancellation of Romanian radio & TV license fee

Statement from the The Management Board of the Romanian Radio
Broadcasting Corporation:

The Management Board of the Romanian Radio Broadcasting Corporation
issued a unanimously adopted stand regarding the draft law on the
cancellation of the radio and TV license fee: As regards the draft law
on the cancellation of several charges and on amending and completing
several laws, which also provides for amending articles 40 and 41 of Law
no. 41/1994 on the organization and functioning of the Romanian Radio
Broadcasting Corporation and the Romanian Television, republished, with
subsequent amendments and additions, in the sense of eliminating the
license fee for the public radio service, we announce that the Romanian
Radio Broadcasting Corporation DOES NOT support the passing of this
draft law for the following reasons: The license fee for the public
radio service is the main source of funding for the Romanian Radio
Broadcasting Corporation and it has been paid by the citizens of Romania
since the public service was set up in 1928, no matter the political
regime. The amount of this fee (2.5 lei per household/ per month) is the
lowest in Europe - around 7 Euros per year, being 4 up to 5 times
smaller than in Serbia, Poland, Greece, Slovakia and 8 times smaller
than in the Czech Republic. Most of the public media services in Europe
are funded through the payment of fees/dues by citizens, and in those
countries where such fees do not exist, editorial independence is
affected. Some of the countries that have understood that this form of
funding helps provide correct and fair information to citizens on issues
of public interest are: Great Britain, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Sweden,
Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Poland, the Czech Republic,
Slovakia, Greece, Portugal, etc. In 2015, the revenues obtained from the
payment of the license fee for the public radio service stood at 207
million lei, accounting for 48% of the Corporation's total revenues. The
other own revenues (advertisement, sponsorships, concerts, the Gaudemus
book fair, services, etc.) amounted to almost 24 million lei, accounting
for almost 6% of the total revenues. The remaining revenues of 196
million lei represented allocations from the state budget meant for the
payment of the radio signal transmission services and for the
functioning of the Music Ensembles Department, of Radio Romania
International and of Radio Romania Chişinău.

In conclusion, we do not agree with the draft law on the elimination of
the radio license fee. Once applied, the measure will soon be followed
by a decrease in the quality of the editorial act, to the detriment of
the Romanian citizens, will level down the activity of the two public
media institutions, whose very existence will be threatened, in the name
of transparency and efficiency at a purely declarative level. It is
common knowledge that "he who pays the piper calls the tune"! Please, do
not cut off the sole link between the public radio and its audience.,
considers the Management Board of Radio Romania.

HFCC A16 vs B16 comparison

As mentioned in the news section, the HFCC A16 schedules are now
available via http://www.hfcc.org/ and DigiDX has compared the A16 and
B16 broadcast hours for each language and transmitter site for several
major international broadcasts to see where hours boradcast in each
language has changed for the new season.

The figure for hours is number broadcast hours per day e.g. if an
English language broadcast from 1600-1700 is on 6195kHz, 9915kHz and
15400kHz this would count as 3 hours.

Language codes are based on this file from the ITU -
http://goo.gl/guI2QM and transmitter site codes are from this ITU
document - http://goo.gl/tiOUl9. These are broadcaster registrations
with the HFCC and do not always resemble the actual transmitted hours,
languages or transmitter site.

Broadcasters included below are : BBC, IBB (VOA/Radio Marti, Radio Farda
etc.), DW, Radio France International, Radio New Zealand International,
KBS World and Radio Romania International.

US, China Silent on Space Talks, Except to Say There Will Be More

Li Bao
October 25, 2016

The United States and China appear to be keeping an unusually low
profile as they push for more dialogue and cooperation on space
exploration.

The State Department hosted a new round of space cooperation
talks in Washington last week with a delegation led by China's
National Space Administration (CNSA), but U.S. officials didn't
publicly announce the meeting until Monday, via a tersely worded
press release that said a third round of civil space dialogue
would be held in China next year.

CNSA has yet to make any public mention of the talks, which
included Pentagon officials and representatives from NASA, the
Federal Aviation Administration, the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Geological Survey.

In the United States, cooperation with China's space agencies is
a sensitive topic. U.S. law prohibits NASA from working with CNSA
on manned space programs, and the U.S. military is concerned that
cooperation with China's space sector would help China improve
its ability to threaten U.S. space assets.

NASA officials, however, have called on Congress to lift the ban,
calling U.S.-China space cooperation a logistical imperative.

Testifying on Capitol Hill last month, experts from four
Washington think tanks and research institutions warned that
China's space and military sectors are closely linked. They also
urged the U.S. space sector to be very careful in trying to
cooperate with China's aerospace agencies.

The State Department said Monday that U.S.-China space dialogue
and cooperation could promote responsible behavior in space by
the two countries and enhance transparency of human space
activities.

Asked to discuss the space cooperation talks in further detail,
neither State Department nor Pentagon officials had responded to
requests for comments by late Tuesday.

This report was produced in collaboration with VOA's Mandarin
service.

Planet Proxima B May be Habitable

VOA News
October 26, 2016

The planet orbiting the nearest star to Earth may be habitable,
according to NASA.

The rocky Proxima b, which orbits Proxima Centauri, appears to be
in the so-called Goldilocks zone, meaning the planet could have
liquid water on its surface.

A team of researchers from the Marseille Astrophysics Laboratory
goes even further, saying the planet could be an "ocean planet
with an ocean covering its entire surface." The dimensions and
properties of the planet "favor its habitability."

For example, the planet's core is likely similar to Mercury with
a metal core accounting for two-thirds of its mass. Researchers
think Proxima b has an overall mass similar to Earth.

According to their analysis, Proxima b may have water similar
what might be lurking in subsurface oceans on the icy moons of
Jupiter and Saturn.

While Proxima b is much closer to its star than Earth is to the
sun, that doesn't necessarily translate into high temperatures on
the planet's surface because Proxima Centauri is a red dwarf,
with a brightness 1,000 times less than the sun.

But astronomers don't know much about Proxima b for certain,
including what the radius of the planet is. This is normally done
during transit, when the planet passes in front of its star.
Proxima b "is not known to transit," researchers said.

Therefore, researchers had to try to ascertain its dimensions
through a different method.

To do this, researchers, because they are fairly certain about
Proxima b's mass, simulated "the behavior of constituent
materials" of the planet.

"With the help of a model of internal structure, they explored
compositions that could be associated with Proxima b and deduced
the corresponding values for the radius of the planet," according
to a news release. "They restricted their study to the case of
potentially habitable planets, simulating dense and solid
planets, formed with the metallic core and rocky mantle found in
terrestrial planets in our solar system. They also allowed the
incorporation of a large mass of water in their composition."

Based on the simulations, researchers determined the radius of
Proxima b to be .94 to 1.4 times the radius of Earth, so it has
to be a very dense planet, "consisting of a metal core with a
mass equal to 65 percent of the planet, the rest being rocky
mantle (formed of silicate)."

"With such a composition, Proxima b is very close to the planet
Mercury, which also has a very solid metal core," researcher
said. "This first case does not exclude the presence of water on
the surface of the planet, as on Earth where the water body does
not exceed 0.05 percent of the mass of the planet. In contrast,
Proxima b can also have a radius of 8,920 kilometers, provided
that it is composed of 50 percent rock surrounded by 50 percent
water. In this case, Proxima b would be covered by a single
liquid ocean 200 kilometers deep."

Broadcasters, Jammers Wreak Havoc on Amateur Radio Frequencies

10/25/2016

The battle continues between Radio Eritrea (Voice of the Broad
Masses) and Radio Ethiopia, which is said to be jamming the
Eritrean broadcaster with broadband white noise. The problem for
radio amateurs is that the battle is taking place in the 40 meter
phone band - 7.145 and 7.175 MHz - with the jamming signal
reported by the IARU Region 1 Monitoring System (IARUMS) to be 20
kHz wide on each channel. The on-air conflict has been going on
for years; Ethiopia constructed new transmitting sites in 2008
and is said to use two or three of them for jamming purposes. The
interfering signals can be heard in North America after dark.
According to IARUMS Region 1 Coordinator Wolf Hadel, DK2OM, Radio
Eritrea is airing separate programs on each frequency. He said in
the IARUMS September newsletter that telecommunications
regulators in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland have been
informed, so they could file official complaints.

Other AM broadcast intruders on 40 meters include Radio Hargeisa
in Somaliland on 7.120 MHz, which, Hadel said, is even audible in
Australia and Japan. He further reports that the Voice of Iran's
signal on 7.205 MHz is splattering up to 5 kHz on either side of
its channel, while Radio France International, which operates on
the same frequency, is splattering down to 7.185 MHz.

Other odds and ends on 40 meters include the so-called "V beacon"
on 7.091.5 MHz. The looped CW signal, which sends the letter "V"
over and over, is audible every day. Hadel said the signal
originates in Kazakhstan.

Hadel has reported HF radar signals from Russia on 40 and 20
meters, with "long-lasting transmissions, often with many
spurious emissions."

A Russian Air Force frequency-shift keyed signal identifying in
CW as "REA4," has been active on 7.117 MHz, while a Russian Navy
FSK signal "Sevastopol" has been observed on 14.180. Hadel said
Germany's telecommunications regulator has filed an official
complaint. Other Russian military signals have been heard on
7.016 MHz.

Chinese broadband OTH radars on 14 MHz generated some
"Woodpecker" complaints, "but this was not the Russian
‘Woodpecker,'" Hadel clarified. Mario Taeubel, DG0JBJ, observed
11 OTH radars on 40 meters, 40 on 20 meters, 13 on 15 meters and
2 on 10 meters during September.

Hadel reports that signals from Spanish and Portuguese, UK, and
Irish fishing operations, Indonesian and Philippine pirates, and
OTH radar signals are sprinkled throughout 80, 40, 20, and 15
meters, while signals from oceangoing sensor buoys are heard
widely on various discrete frequencies on 10 meters.
