Philippine DX News No.33
November 8, 2009
Hello everyone and welcome to the November edition of the Philippine DX News. This report No.33 and I’m Henry Umadhay in Antique, Philippines. Glad to be back and thank you for tuning by. In today’s program we have few items about FEBC new MW station, B09 Frequency Schedule and reception log.
First about FEBC AM Station DZMR
When the radio station -1143 AM DZMR Santiago, Isabela in Northern Philippines – begins its operation this year, there will be programs in Ilocano, Ibanag, Itawis and Kalanguya.
The goal is to broadcast in at least 14 local dialects and languages to reach more people groups especially in the mountainous areas of the Cagayan Valley and Cordillera regions including three people groups who were once headhunters.
Besides daily bible readings in Ilocano, 1143 DZMR Santiago will also produce original songs in all dialects that the broadcast reaches. When it is fully operational, the radio station will offer Christian programming to more people groups than any Christian radio station. This early, Back to the Bible- Philippines is planning to reach out to the Ilocano, Ibanag, Itawis and Kalanguya by producing radio programs which will be aired through DZMR Santiag 1143 Khz.
No More Printed Schedule or QSL Cards
With the start of the new transmission period for short and medium wave, as well as satellite, on October 25, Radio Sweden will only be publishing the broadcast schedule on the web.
This a logical consequence of the increasing importance of the internet as broadcast platform and because they stopped broadcasting their programs in Swedish.
At the same time they are simplifying their marketing and audience services.
At the same time they are discontinuing mailing QSL Cards to listeners in response to reception reports.
