The past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category (except Japan) as of Oct 7

Why don't we savor 'simple listening' on the sidelines of travel?

The following list is all past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category, only local radios – no long distance MW nor SW services (In my opinion, they're too obsolete) , except heard in Japan, amounts to no less than 27 countries/regions and six continents.

FM in July 2017 (in Maru-no-uchi, Tokyo, Japan)

In last July, I tried to do FM band-scan on the 35th floor of `Maru-no-uchi` building, in the central part of Tokyo.

Approximately 1 minute by foot from the Marunouchi South Exit of JR Tokyo Station.

Directly connected to Tokyo Station on the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line by underground passage.

(Marunouchi bldg. on GO TOKYO)

http://www.gotokyo.org/en/kanko/chiyoda/spot/40639.html

 

The receiver was my PL-380 with its telescopic antenna, the time was around 1pm.

The word ‘THP’ is a traditional high-powered regional FM station, including NHK,

‘NLP’ is a new style low-powered community FM station and ‘WFM’ is a new style complementary (supplementary) service by traditional MW broadcaster,

mainly aired between 90MHz and 94.9MHz, sometimes called ‘Wide-FM’.

FM in July 2017 (in Timor-Leste - East Timor)

A member of ARDXC, David Foster, based in VIC - Australia, kindly allow me to introduce his FM Radio Report in Timor-Leste. (East Timor)

 

(East Timor on Wiki)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Timor

 

His home has a friendship town in Timor-Leste, so he travels there every two years.

It gives a good opportunity for him to do some listening and do updates on what has changed on the radio bands.

He is the editor of the Timor-Leste section in the World Radio TV Handbook. (WRTH)

 

There is no more MW stations and of course no SW for many years.

The only way to hear Timor-Leste radio is to go there and tune in on FM, although you can always listen online if you really want to.

 

A part of Dili from Wiki 

Dili

 

He was back in Timor-Leste for last July.

He said the radio scene hasn’t changed a great deal since the last visit two years ago, but it was still fun to check it all out.

This report includes monitoring from 3 locations, Dili (D), Liquisa (L) and Venilale (V).

There was a grand FM opening to northern Australia on 22 July with nearly a dozen outlets coming through strongly.

A lesser opening on 13 July saw half a dozen Indonesian stations make it through.

Dili FM stations are still on air - 88.8 M3 R., 89.5 Voz FM, 90.0 R. Akademika, 91.2 R. Labeh, 91.7 R. Timor-Leste, 94.1 R. Comunidade Comoro, 94.7 R. Metro, 95.8 Liberdade FM, 97.0 STL R., 98.5 R. Timor Kmanek, 99.5 R. Rakambia, 99.9 R. Maubere, 100.5 R. Lorico Lian, 102.0 R. Klibur.

His receiver was a YB400, Grundig with its telescopic antenna.

 

88.2 MHz

R. Gardamor, Dili. New station. ID at 0715 3/7. RTV Gardamor is a media company with this FM outlet believed to have commenced in March 2017. The address is 2nd Floor, Gardamor Building, Fatuhada – Dili. Email is rtvgardamor@gmail.com and Director is Eduardo Belo Soares (his nom de guerre during the resistance was Gattot). Gardamor is part of the larger Baniuaga Group. Gardamor TV is on Channel 21 (D)

88.4

Unid Indonesian. Fading up and down 0830 13/7. This DX opening wound up around 0915 with other signals suffering similar fading to this one (L)

88.5

R. Na’i Feto, Laleia. Beaut ID 2330 19/7. This station is run from the Catholic church and its meaning is R. Our Lady. Includes religious programming of course. Laleia is a small town between Manatuto and Baucau (V)

88.9

Yolngu R., Darwin “This is Yolngu Radio, number one radio station in the nation” at 1040 22/7. It switched to FM by the end of June 2017 and said it would continue on 1530 MW for a few weeks to allow the audience to transition to FM, according to ards.com.au (V)

90.5

Unid Indonesian. Fading up and down at 0831 13/7 (L)

90.6 

R. Lian Dame, Dili. Unheard in July, presumed inactive (D)

91.5 

RRI Atambua (tent.). 1255 6/7. Likely to be them but heard just the once unlike 99.0 which was quite regular (V)

92.3 

R. Advent Suara Pengharapan, Dili. This Seventh Day Adventist station (The Voice of Hope) was unheard in July so presumed inactive (D)

92.3 

R. Comunidade Tokodede, Liquisa. On air at 0737 12/7 but has fairly limited hours (L)

93.1 

Unid Indonesian. Fading up and down at 0833 13/7 (L)

93.5

Jojo FM, Dili. Visited the Arte Moris (Living Art) gallery where this youth station’s studio is located and it looked permanently and sadly shut (D)

93.8

R. Maubere, Manatuto. 1300 6/7 (V)

94.5

Larrakia R., Darwin. “Larrakia Radio 94.5” ID 1042 22/7 (V)

94.8

Unid Indonesian. Fading up and down at 0834 13/7 (L)

94.8

R.Maubere, Viqueque. Active and well heard as at 1205 6/7 (V)

95.0

R. Timor-Leste, Manatuto. Overmodulated 1206 6/7 (V)

95.3

BBC, Dili. Relay has closed down (D)

95.9

Unid Indonesian. Fading up and down around 0835 13/7 (L)

96.0

R. Maubere, Baucau. Fine at 1207 6/7 (V)

96.1

R. Comunidade Illi Uai, Manatuto. Bit of a battle to separate it from much stronger 96.0 at 1207 6/7 (V)

97.6

Generation FM, Dili. This R. Timor-Leste youth

network appears to have closed down (D)

97.7  

Darwin. ID as “Darwin’s 97.7” at 1048 22/7 (V)

97.9

R. Maubere, Ainaro. Weak but consistent signal as at 1212 7/7. Its txer mast is high on a mountain to cover the towns of Ainaro, Same and Aileu which is why its signal makes its way across the mountains to Venilale (V)

97.9

R. Maubere, Liquisa. 1245 11/7. Shares the channel with the more widely heard Ainaro relay (L)

97.9

R. Povo, Viqueque. This community station was unheard. Not noticed two years ago either but hopefully it is temporarily inactive rather than defunct (V)

98.9

R. Kolejiu Fatumaka, Fatumaka. Located in a village halfway between Baucau and Venilale. ID at 1204 7/7 and putting out spurs on 94.5, 96.7 and 103.3.

First and last of those are spurs 4.4 MHz from the fundamental., the other 2.2 MHz. Australian Tony Jurd is a volunteer electronics expert who works at this Salesian technical college for a couple of months each year. Not on air in the second half of July as the novices (trainee priests) who run the studio were on holidays. They’re also operating an unlicensed TV station for the benefit of local people who can buy cheaply from the College yagi UHF antennas made from recycled bits and pieces (V)

98.9

R. Timor-Leste, Viqueque. Unheard in July so may be having some technical difficulties (V)

99.0

RRI Atambua (tent.). Carries ProTiga which is a national network so no local ID’s. Reasonably consistent in Venilale with at best a fair signal. Only listed nearby Pro3 RRI is at Atambua in Indonesian West Timor. Call to prayer or similar at 1056 21/7, ID 1059, warta berita 1100. See 91.5 above but other channels of 93.1 and 99.8 unheard. Atambua is at an altitude of 350 metres giving signals a better chance of propagating some distance (V)

99.1

R. Timor-Leste, Liquisa. Very strong just as it should be at 1305 11/7 (L)

99.9

R. Comunidade Lian Matebian, Baucau. On air inconsistently and seems to be running very low power.

Clear ID at 1005 27/7 but then faded out which is odd because it’s basically line of sight from Venilale to Baucau (32 km up by winding road to Venilale which is about 700 metres above sea level).

When it was off, R. Maubere in Dili was weakly audible also on 99.9 (V)

100.1

Hot 100 FM., Darwin. ID as such at 1025 22/7 then ad for a bar in Darwin (V)

100.3

Unid Indonesian. Fading up and down at 0836 13/7 (L)

100.9

SBS R., Darwin. Vietnamese 1015, unid language 1035 22/7 (V)

101.1

R. Nacional, Dili. Recent new station. ID as Nacional FM at 0730 3/7 (D)

102.5

ABC News R., Darwin. Carrying BBC World Service. BBC ID 1029 22/7 (V)

103.1

RTP Antena 1, Dili (relay from Portugal).

Two years ago this and 105.3 were inactive but according to Facebook RTP returned to Dili airwaves on 5 September 2016.

Gave Antena 1 ID at 0735 3/7 (D)

103.3

JJJ., Darwin. ID 1017 22/7 (V)

104.1

Territory R., Darwin. ID at 1034 22/7 as “Darwin’s greatest hits ......... FM”

but it didn’t mention Territory R. (V)

104.9

Mix FM, Darwin. Relaying AFL Swans vs Saints match descriptions from ABC 1018 22/7 (V)

105.3

RDP Internacional, Dili (relay from Portugal). Nice and loud at 0737 3/7. With R. Australia and the BBC gone, Portugal provides the only foreign relays in Timor-Leste now (D)

105.4

R. Timor-Leste, Baucau. Scratchy signal at 1215 7/7 (V)

105.7

ABC R. Darwin. Also with Swans vs Saints game //104.9 as at 1019 22/7 (V)

106.4

R. Australia, Dili. No surprise that it is no longer on the air. What a short-sighted, penny-pinching and arrogant decision (D)

107.3

ABC Classic FM, Darwin. 1020 22/7. This was the only weak Darwin signal, otherwise they were all good to very good during this opening (V)

107.9

R. Fini Lorosae, Baucau. Wasting power for days and days with a big fat carrier but finally got its audio on the go on 20/7 with Portuguese programming at 1030.

Also ID’s as RFTL (V)

September 17, 2017

just returned from the US

I’d stayed in the US (CO and WY) for nearly two weeks on business, have just returned by the direct flight from Denver(DEN) to Tokyo-Narita(NRT).

It was the very very first travel to go through CO and WY, so really excited!

I brought my XDR-P1DBP for this travel, however mainly listened to K-Love radio (91.1MHz in Denver)

The past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category (in Japan) as of August 12

Why don't we savor 'simple listening' on the sidelines of travel?

Since I'd specialized in geography, travel with local radio listening (band-scan) is a very interesting hobby through a perspective of regional studies.

I assume that I'm the only person who can create such kinds of articles and columns both in English and in Japanese.

The following list is almost all past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category, heard in Japan, sorted them by ten geographical regions.

FM in July 2017 (in Yokohama, Japan)

Yokohama is the second largest city in Japan by population, after Tokyo, and the most populous municipality of Japan.

It is the capital city of Kanagawa Prefecture. It lies on Tokyo Bay, south of Tokyo, in the Kanto region of the main island of Honshu.

It is a major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area.

Yokohama's population of 3.7 million makes it Japan's largest city after the Special Wards of Tokyo.

I was born and brought up in near Yokohama, right now live in near Yokohama and commute to work in Tokyo.

So I pass Yokohama on a daily basis, however seldom to set down recently.

The Yokohama Landmark Tower is the second tallest building and 4th tallest structure in Japan, standing 296.3 meters high.

It is located in the Minato Mirai 21 district of Yokohama city, right next to Yokohama Museum of Art, work on the building was finished in 1993.

When built, it was the tallest building in Japan until it was surpassed by Abeno Harukas (in Osaka) in 2012. When opened.

On the 69th floor there is an observatory, named Sky Garden, from which one can see a 360-degree view of the city, and on clear days Mount Fuji.

The past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category (except Japan) as of Aug 10

 

Why don't we savor 'simple listening' on the sidelines of travel?

The following list is all past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category, only local radios – no long distance MW nor short wave services (In my opinion, they're too obsolete) , except heard in Japan, amounts to no less than 26 countries/regions and six continents.

In this travel, she had plenty of radio to listen, especially while driving between Vancouver Island, Vancouver and the Rocky Mountains.

She said the cities, scenery, lakeside and mountain walks were all spectacular.

The local radio was full of reports about the worst wildfires for many years, some of which we spotted.

There was some quality community radio, such as local music from CIMM Ukee Radio 99.5 MHz in Ucluelet and worldwide left of center news from CFRO Cooperative Radio in Vancouver.

She had a Sirius-XM satellite radio in the car; this gave us choices from well over 100 music and talk stations, including most of CBC, Canadian Indigenous People's Radio, NPR and BBC WS.

FM in June 2017 (in Nagoya. Aichi Japan)

In last May, I did FM band-scan on the top floor of the ‘Midland Square’ in Nagoya City.

Nagoya is a big city, the capital of Aichi prefecture and the fourth most populous city in Japan after Tokyo, Yokohama and Osaka.

And located in the Chubu (Central Japan) region, situated at the center of Japan's main island. It's the political, economic and industrial center of this region.

 

Midland Square houses offices of many companies including Toyota Motor Corporation, Towa Real Estate and Mainichi Shimbun.

It features a shopping center with 60 name-brand stores, two automobile showrooms and a cinema.

It also holds the record for the highest open-air observation deck in Japan.

Also of note are the unusual double-floored elevators, which take only 40 seconds to rise to the top.

MW in June 2017, (in Malaysia) -2

Paul’s comments of the reception locations across his travel.

 

Singapore:

Radio listening was impossible due to noise-levels in the hotel, think every room had a plasma TV!

 

WRT in Singapore, Koji tried to chase MW in a park , it was good location.

(long distance MW listening in SIN)

Melaka City in Malaysia:

Bands were full of Thai stations with a few Indonesians.

Noted that there was a lot of common programming at times, other than news so difficult to work out who was who!

Tanah Rata (Cameron Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia):

Mix of Thai, China, Taiwanese, Indonesian and a few Filipinos.

Penang in Malaysia:

Thai stations were all over the show.

Only one Japanese (RKB radio in Fukuoka), lots of Chinese and Taiwanese and better signals from the Philippines.

Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia:

Philippines all over the dial, a few from the subcontinent, strong Taiwanese and Chinese also.

Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei:

Their hotel was very noisy, a plonking great CRT in every room didn’t help and nothing new was heard.
