10th June

No label today (Sunday) either. Or it popped up just when I was not sitting near the computer. Anyway, a short log. Despite severe QRN from thunderstorms 10 km away.

11th June

Two logs today: First segment at 1603 - 17000 UTC, the 2nd at 1739 - 1820. A total of 6 minutes of sound got trapped in the wave file. Actually, I was unaware of the second pop-up. When I came in, I noted that the maximum SNR had been about 24-25 dB around 1725 UTC.

12th June

Periods with quite a strong signal compared to other days.
The modulaton level was far too high. Even the languages I do understand I could not make out what they said because of the extreme distortion.

Nothing at all in the afternoon today. Faint traces of DRM at 20-2030 UTC, still fizzling, but not enough for more than the occasional Frame Sync LED to light up in Dream. Even less reaction when tried the DRM Software Radio.

Today until 1820 UTC nothing at all. But that corresponds to the predictions for June with VOACAP.

Today's catch started before I noticed it.
Another treat at 1725 - 1800 UT, but very weak.

Hi Bernd!

Looks like nobody at DW in Bonn knows about this transmission.
I asked them several times about this.

When I tried to receive your transmission some days ago there was a
v e r y weak signal.
Could you tell us a bit about the background of this transmission (special event etc.)?

Hi Bernd in Kigali and all,

On 5th May DW in Germany confirmed in a e-mail:
"die Senderleistung betraegt 80 Watt eff. Die Antenne ist eine Viertelwellen-Ground-Plane ca. 10 m ueber Grund.
MfG, DEUTSCHE WELLE"

I put a GoogleEarth bookmark on my DRM home page, if you would want to have a look at the site:

http://www.omnirep.ch/drm/dumps.html

It seems like the transmitter was assembled in Switzerland?

I mentioned in a post # 1 here with thanks to DW who informed me that the transmitter against my wildest expectations really is located in Rwanda.

With some further help from x-fielder, we found out with VOACAP that it was / is theoretically possible to receive a transmission at this QRG in the afternoons over two F2 hops.

We'll see what today brings.

Best regards to Africa

Hi Douglas,
hi Digger,

our DRM station is really located in Rwanda at our relaystation.
The transmission beginns whit the start of the first panafrican DRM Conference last year in Kigali. It should be a demonstration for the members of this conference, where a lot of Himalaya DRM 2009 Recievers were given to then conference members. Now it is running for Orinfor, the national radio.
As Digger posted, we are running about 80 Watts in a Groundplane antenna.

So, all the best from Kigali

73 de Bernd
