Shortwave Review Conducted by Alan H. Graham

Review Of Conditions * Latest Overseas News ★ Reports From Observers ¥ Hourly Tuning Guide Summary of Present Conditions During the past month further indications of a gradual changeover to autumn and winter conditions have been noted, and have been confirmed by reports from official observers. Already indications are that 43 metres will provide some interesting DX later in the year. At the present time reception on this band is quite good during the mornings and late evenings, when any number of transmitters are to be heard when the noise level falls to reasonable proportions. The main interest here is th e new Albanian station , “Radio Tirana,” now testing on 49.4 m. in the early mornings. Also watch out for the following on the higher wavelengths:—-FK 8 A A, N oum ea, 49.02 m .; CFRX, Toronto, 49.42 m .; CHNX, Halifax, 48.94 m .; TGW B, Guatemala City, 46.2 m .; TGQA, Q uezaltenango, 46.56 m .; X ETW , Tam pico, 49.6 m.; CS2WD, Lisbon, 50.15 m .; and ZNB, M afeking, 50.84 m. Good reception is now being provided, both m orning and evening, on 31 metres; and day light reception on this band should improve steadily during th e com ing m onths. “ Radio Tirana ,” Albania, has also been testing on 30 metres, 9970 k.c., usually around 6 p.m. A stranger on 31.49 m. is believed to be “Radio Warsaw .” TGW A. LRX, CXA-8 and OZF are interesting stations to be h eard a t present-. On 25 metres night reception should soon become poor, but early morning and d ay light reception will improve. The Americans are still the best morning stations on this band. Unusual loggings this month include H V J, Vatican City; H IN ; and CB1190. Just below the regular 25-metre band XM HA, Shanghai; and HCJB, Quito, on 24.5 and 24.08 metres, respectively, are attracting a good deal of attention. Although 19 metres continues to provide som e really ex tra o rd in ary re ­ ception, it is a p p a re n t th a t early evening reception is stead ily declining, as the peak fo r reception on th is band moves tow ards m idnight. ZG0X, C hungking; TGW A and HAS-3 are reported. The la st m entioned statio n is very stro n g a t Sunday m idnight. Both th e 13 and 16 metre bands a re becom ing v ery e rra tic , w ith everincreasing periods of alm ost to ta l “black-out.” Ultra-High-Frequency Notes Conditions on 11 metres (now the outstanding UHF attraction) continue to be reasonably satisfacto ry . F rom 10 a.m . till 1 p.m . is th e period of b est reception, w ith a peak usually around 11.30 a.m . W 9X U P is the stead iest sig n al; w ith W 6XKG and W 9XA also strong. The 9.49-metre band seems to have suffered a tem p o rary (we hope) eclipse. On most occasions there was no trace of even the regulars. The 10-metre amateur band is im ­ proving as f a r as reception from North America is concerned. Very strong signals a re to be h eard around 11 a.m . Conditions on th is band were very good on March 1 when a number of stro n g R9 signals were logged.

A supply of wavelength frequency conversion charts has been received from Messrs. P h ilip s’ Lam ps (A ’sia ) Ltd. for free distribution am ong “Radio World” readers. This chart enables wavelength in metres to be instantly converted to fre quency in kilocycles, and conversely. Commencing at 100 k.c. the table progresses in single k.c.’s to 999 k.c. (3000 to 300.3 metres). However, unknowns applying to quantities th a t a re m ultiples or sub-m ultiples of those listed can easily be ascertained, and so th e ch art can be em ployed to cover the e n tire ran g e of frequencies used in rad io transm ission. F or ex ­ am ple, 500 metres is equal to 600 k.c. The corresponding fre ­ quency fo r five metres (onehu n d reth of 500) is obtained by m ultiplying the frequency q u o ted by 100; th u s it becomes 60,000 k.c., or 60 m.c.
