Logs for May 2017

01.05. 15690 1115 D: Radio Farda, Biblis. Lähettää tässä 05.30-16.00 UTC
01.05. 17755 1230 ROU: RRI Tiganesti. Romanialaista musiikkia, mutta juonto kiinaksi yllätti.
02.05. 17615 1310 ARS: BSKSA Riyadh. Koraanikanavan releointia vahvasti 16 metrin aaltoalueella. Taajuus voi olla myös 17625 kHz. SW.infon mukaan asema on tähän aikaan äänessä molemmilla taajuuksilla, ja tarkkaa taajuutta onkin mahdoton päätellä jälkikäteen nettitietojen avulla. Nämä vihjetason asemat on nimittäin kuunneltu roskalavalta löydetyllä analogisella Hitachi TRK-5030E:llä, joka tuli varsin vähällä vaivalla kuntoon. Radio on 1970-luvun puolivälin matkaradio, ja sentyyppisillä ovat monet varmaan DX-nousukaudella ahkerasti harrastaneet.
02.05. 15370 1615 CVA: Radio Vaticana, Santa Maria di Galeria. Paavillisia asioita venäjäksi.
02.05. 11810 1710 ROU: RRI Tiganesti. Häirikköaseman kainalossa englanniksi mm. Ukrainan euroviisuista.
02.05. 918 1957 E: Radio Inter, Madrid. Probably with ERTU in Arabic. SVN off air tonight!
05.05. 15220 1007 CHN: CRI Kashi-Saibagh. Kiinan terveydenhuollosta ohjelmassa “Mai Kina” unkariksi.

05.05. 15390 1330 D: Athmeeya Yatra Radio, Nauen. Tangkhulinkielistä rukoilua.
05.05 15160 1347 ROU: RRI Tiganesti. Venäjäksi. “Vy efire Inter Radio Romania”.
05.05. 11910 1425 ROU: RRI Tiganesti. “Europäischen presseschau” (eurotopics.net) & “Volksmusik”.
05.05. 11790 1500 CHN: CRI Urumqi. Venäjänkielisen ohjelman aloitus uutisin.
05.05. 11700 1503 PHL: Vatican Radio, Palauig-Zambales. Tamilinkielinen lähetys pienen nopean feidin kera.
06.05. 6135 0155 BOL: Radio Santa Cruz. “Radio Santa Cruz, desde Santa Cruz de la Sierra”. QRM UNID carrier.
06.05. 514 0220 EST: GO Ämari.
06.05. 432 0225 EST: G Ämari.

22.05. 13635 0813 TUR: TRT Emirler. Turkinkielistä ohjelmaa, ID “Türkiyenin Sesi Radyosu”. Demokratia oli tapetilla. Kuului täällä puhtaammin kuin 25 metrillä (3-4).

Another kind of loggings will follow… Aside of DX catches, I like to give an idea to our international readers, where (in which kind of country) these catches are maden! So here it comes – just a quick view to some of our colourful birds seen this spring in my QTH garden.

An European Robin (Erithacus rubecula) has stayed here all winter long, which is pretty rare here in 62.5 degrees North. At the moment they are more numerous, because Southern European tourists have arrived!

Instead these guys (Turdus philomelos) have been probably in Iberian peninsula all winter long! A song thrush was identified on April 30, 2017 in the garden, unfortunately only passing-by.

The common chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) is said to be second most common bird in Finland (must be millions!). The male is brightly coloured with a blue-grey cap and rust-red underparts. Some of them can be seen in Central Finland all year around, but usually they fly to Southern Scandinavia or Western Europe for the coldest season. “Old people” use to say it takes “half a month to the summer” after seeing first chaffinch of the year. Since female chaffinchs arrive a bit after the males, and I have seen already a week ago a female chaffinch in the garden, we can say that summer 2017 has officially begun in the dacha!

Eurasian blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus, syn. Parus caeruleus) is easily recognisable by its blue and yellow plumage and its size. Central Finland belongs to the northernmost regions, where it lives regularly.

Blackbird (Turdus merula) is a common guest in dacha!

The great tit (Parus major) is a distinctive bird with a black head and neck, prominent white cheeks, olive upperparts and yellow underparts. It lives here all around the year.
