Exotic reception 67.04 MHz - 19 July 2017

Post by daveB » 29 Jul 2017 22:19

I'm gradually clearing my recorded files - and found a small batch on 66-74 MHZ from 19 July I hadn't listened to. This is what I found on 67.04 MHz

The dominant station is UKR Kultura - but coming and going is another station which sounds vaguely arabic. There are a few patches where the Ukraine station fades right out and hopefully someone can identify the language - but given that the Ukraine was coming on a bearing of 83 - 86 deg - the station from Turkmenistan is the strong candidate at 4896 km on a bearing of 86 deg.

There also appear to be a couple of Russian stations present during the period - which can only be double hop - but I need to do a bit more checking.

Hello Dave,
it sounds vaguely Turkish, I think. ;)
Turkmen language comes from the same origins of Turkish.... (you can try to contact Kurt Tscherp into the yahoo group to ask him if he recognise this language).

Sounds like a Turkic language to me as well with some Russian words such as "Respublika", so if it wasn't Turkmenistan, GTRK Dagestan from Russia should be a likely candidate.

I would also like to mention KTRK Kyrgyz Radiosu, RFE/RL Radio Azattyk from Balykchy, Kirgisthan - 20 kW ERP estimated.
And Qazaq Radyosi Karaganda, Kazhakstan - 17 kWP ERP which seems to be the most logical solution.
I have heard Qazaq Radyosi (or Kazahk Radio) online a few times, and this language has definitelty the most similarity with Turkish (next to Azerbaidjan but they do not seem to operate this frequency any longer).
They also have the "Radyosi" (turkish word for radio network) on their name! Kyrgyz Radiosu does, too.
But be careful Qazaq Radyosi or Kazahk Radio has many hours of native Russian language programme as all of them were a former USSR republic and forced to speak Russian.

all in all, a very interesting catch on a spectacular frequency being used up to Novosibirsk.

I wonder if they have such languages on Rossii Kuzzbass , Rossii Irtysh or (most likely) Rossii Bashkortostan as well???

I have looked up the distances on 67.04 MHz , multi hop seems possible on these (for QTH London)

Dagestan - 3498km
Bashkortostan - 3702km
Turkmenistan - 4717km
Irtysh Ust-Ishim - 4427km
Kuzbass - 5420km
Kazahkstan - 4941km
Kirgistan - 5592km


regarding the distances I would say it was TR Watan or Qazaq Radyosi. If not so, Dagestan or Bashkortostan could be alternatives.

I keep my fingers cross for you to find out maybe it was either Ashgabat, Turkmenistan or (obviously rather) Kazahkstan.
maybe you can find a native speaker as there are many Kazhak-Russians in Central Europe. good luck and good DX


I am waiting for some other nation than RUS, UKR, BLR or MDA on OIRT to appear, even Moldova is extremely happy in GER.
but no luck so far with GEO, ARM, AZE, KAZ, KGZ, TRM or so

I have been advised that the reception was R Rossii from Kochubey (GKTR Dagestan). I also received other double hop signals on other frequencies including a "turkish sounding" station on 70.31. This was a different program to the one on 67.04 - and identified as R Rossii from Cherkessk at 3142 km.

The other stations were on 66.20, 68.36, 68.51, 69.53. These had a voice id at around 0930 UTC and were located close to the Caspian Sea

Here is a link to the FMList log http://www.fmlist.org/fm_logmap.php?dat ... &omid=2414

The Dagestan region has 14 official languages
