Jiangxi News Radio 1350

Post by Brookman Spark » 21 Feb 2018 15:43

1350 Jiangxi Xinwen Guangbo (Jiangxi News Radio) has been heard this week on several UK/European remote receivers when the Italian station with irregular hours has been off air. 21:30UTC and hanging around till past 22:00.

I got a match to the running audio on a southern China receiver but of course at ID time the Euro SDRs didn't offer the goods.

This ID is recorded on that China receiver so I can't claim any DX for it. It's just here for the ID, maybe useful to some. At the start of the recording the male announcer's accented ID seems to be "AM 1215, FM 104.4". At 36sec the female announcer gives it in easier standard Chinese "FM 104.4 Xinwen Jiangxi Guangbo".

Why the "1215" on the ID? I don't know. 1215 and 1350 are broadcasting different content right now. Maybe Jiangxi Xinwen only uses 1350 at certain times of day. More listening work needed there.

According to http://www.asiawaves.net/mediumwave-1350.htm
they are operating two different transmitters on that frequency, broadcast at the same site. Don't ask me why:
1350 kHz
50 kW
Jiangxi Transmitting Station 802 {江西802台}
2200-1600 (off air Tues 0600-0900)
1350 kHz
1 kW
Jiangxi Transmitting Station 803 {江西803台}
2000-1730 (off air Tues 0600-0855)
FMLIST has 'em two, as well but misspelled one of them:
CHN Jiangxi RGD Nongcun Guangbo 2200-1600 zh Ji'an/JXTS802 * 50/10
CHN Jiangxi RGD Xinwen Guangbo 2000-1730 zh Jiujiang/JXTS803 1
Station's Website gives a "404 - not found".

Jiangxi News is easily audible now on a Belgian remote receiver but not on the Yeovil UK remote receiver where there is a multistation fuzz.

The two Arabics normally heard there are Egypt and "Al Kul" from Gavar Armenia beamed to Syria. Not hearing either at the moment.

Thanks for the tip about the Italian being off again.
