ACORES
828 Antena 1 Açores, Monte das Cruzes, Flores island, reactivated (after an antenna break down back in June last), 2236-..., 07/10, relaying Antena 1 Lisboa, comments on the f/ball match POR vs. ISL; 44433, QRM de E.  I had recently reported on its reactivation scheduled for Thursday, 06/10, and it seems things did run well for the RTP.  This small 1 kW tx served by a folded monopole with the VHF-FM antennae on top is back and with regular, strong signals.
Carlos Goncalves POR (10/10-2011)

ACORES
Antena 1 Açores status:
693 Santa Bárbara, Terceira island, is at just 3 kW, nominal 10 (Harris tx). Due to QRM, reception of this one here has always been very tough.

828 Monte das Cruzes, Flores island, 1 kW (solid stade Nautel tx). The weakest tx of the remaining 2 active on the archipelago, but the one providing the best signal here, regularly heard... but I haven´t logged it for a few month´s time for it´s off since June last, but it is estimated that a damaged insulator will be installed on 06 Oct next.  The Flores tower is a folded monopole meaning it can take the VHF-FM aerials on its top.

That particular part was not bought as [unofficial] instructions stipulate no further costs are to be dedicated to the RTP MW stns.  Their colleagues in Madeira simply removed an insulator from one of the idle towers (maybe the collapsed tower at Porto Santo island), and are despatching the item to Açores.

In my reports, I have once commented that small stations are usually the most unwilling one to disclose any information on their MW operation, I mean here in Portugal at least.
Nevertheless, they keep their MW permits by paying them annually, but it´s "strange" that the lack of activity doesn´t mean those licenses are simply revoked which is supposed to be the normal procedure by the radio authorities www.anacom.pt and www.erc.pt
But then there seems to be this interesting regulation stipulating stns operating on MW too get a higher subsidy for airing the so called political propaganda campaign prior to ellections.  I have not ascertained whether this is actually true, but suppose the RTP chap who provided me this piece of information knows what´s he talking about.

All stns, state owned and private, are (regrettably in my view) forced to provide time slots for airing the tapes, like for instance Brazilian stations have to air the natl. newz magazine A Voz do Brasil, i.e. if this situation hasn´t changed (at least not all do air that magazine at the same time, typically 2200-2300 UTC).

So if their MW fqs exist in the official lists because licenses are being paid, no wonder why some thereof aren´t keen in telling us about the actual situation... for, "officially" they do b/cast on MW...

Needless to say the b...dy subsidies I mentioned are at the expenses of the taxpayer.

I have just received my copy of the WRTH 2011, and unfortunately found some incorrect items:

RDP Antena 1 Açores
Pico da Barrosa 837 10 kW, São Miguel island, is no more.  The file with the RDP stns I have recently received from www.rtp.pt is the same RTP sends to the WRTH, and I'm sure the latter forwarded it to the Country Contributor, and 837 is no longer listed there.  I take it WRTH Country Contributors should perhaps keep in touch with their colleagues handling the MW sections so as to avoid such discrepancies.
History:
One of the reasons why this outlet was terminated is the collapse of the tower during a storm.

Commercial Stations
R. Club de Angra (909 kHz, inactive, tower collapsed years ago) and Estação Emissora do Club Asas do Atlântico (1566 kHz, inactive) are being listed separately instead of appearing under the "Other Stations" (VHF-FM only) list, but those two fqs are omitted.  The fact is that they're both licenced MW stns that are simply not active [on MW] for certain reasons, but both remain active on VHF-FM.  It is up to www.erc.pt ultimately to decide towards the removal of their MW licences, but then again this hasn't happened so far. On the other hand, ERC is usually swift in doing so regarding VHF-FM licences.
History:
As a matter of fact,
RCA 909 vanished when their monopole collapsed a number of years ago, and increasing competition from the VHF-FM-only local stns and revenue decrease paved the way for halting MW operation, and it is almost they will remain silent on MW for the years to come.
1566 is silent not due to technical reasons, but for the same financial motive that caused RCA to suspend MW.

Military Stations
Rádio Lajes - Voz da FAP
No mention of the [continuously postponed] planned reactivation on MW
1530[formerly thought was 1584] (ex-648), no VHF-FM [93.5 MHz 150 watt] fq listed, stn director's name [currently, Lt.Colonel Carlos Mendes] also omitted.  As a matter of fact, Lt.Col. Carlos Mendes' name should have been mentioned in the WRTH 2009 & 2010 editions.

828 Antena 1 Açores, Monte das Cruzes, Flores, is "back in business" as obs'ed. on 15 April:
2225-22422, 15 Apr, songs prgr; 45343, adj. QRM, so maybe the fault on the site was not that serious after all.

ACORES
828 Antena 1 Açores, Monte das Cruzes, Ilha das Flores, Flores island, has been off due to a tx break down; it is estimated that the repair crew arrived on the island today, 12 Apr, so as to solve the problem and reactivate this 1 kW that serves both this island and that of Corvo.   This is actually my best AZR channel here despite [often avoidable] QRM de E.

AÇORES
909 R.Club de Angra
1566 Estação Emissora do Club Asas do Atlântico.
These two (plus R.Altitude, Guarda, here on mainland) will most probably loose their MW permits, i.e. if the decision hasn't been taken into force, on grounds of non-use of their fqs.

Rádio Lajes - A Voz da Força Aérea Portuguesa, will hopefully be back on MW soon, though neither on its previous, inactive, outlet on 648 kHz (was 650 kHz at least in the mid~late 70s) nor on the one shown in their website, i.e. 1530 kHz, which was the fq. they originally planned to move to. It's going to be on 1584 kHz, a frq. where the stn seemed to have operated in the past too. Power will again be 1 kW via the old, idle tx.
Part of their future plans include DRM operation on MW via a new tx and VHF-FM power increase from the current 0.150 kW PEP to 0.5 kW PEP. Besides that, split operation will be an option, i.e. VHF-FM, internet and MW all carrying different channels albeit incl. some relays of R.Renascença, and with sport being carried via MW.
R. Lajes' audience is not confined to the Lajes airbase personel, nor to Lajes or even Praia da Vitória, the nearest town, but to the whole island of Terceira at least. [http://www.radiolajes.com/lajes

Algerian broadcaster Télédiffusion d'Algérie has enlisted Switzerland-based company Ampegon to install shortwave transmission systems at two sites in Bechar and Ouargla. These new transmitters will enable TDA to broadcast shortwave without utilizing third-party vendors, says the company.

Ampegon will develop turnkey solutions at both sites inclusing two 300 kW shortwave transmitters, two shortwave antenna systems and civil works. The project is estimated to be completed at the end of 2016.

Ampegon, in cooperation with Transradio, previously installed a 1.5 MW longwave transmission system in Algeria near Tipaza, and is presently modernizing two medium-wave transmsitter stations in Bechar and Oulet Fayed.

Re. "ALGERIA 1550 khz ALG Saharawi Arab Dem.Rep.Nat. Radio: Since a few days ago this station is inactive. Sergio Sarabia (21/4-2015)",
I confirm they were off the air not just in the evening but also during the morning period; their "alternative" fq of 700/702 was not used either. I checked 1550 a few mins. prior to 2200 today, and they were off, then a carrier emerged, and power was clearly being increased till the signal reached almost the normal - high - level I get from them; announcements, incl. webpage preceded the 2201 TS followed by the newscast.  I cannot say that coincided with the resume of operations or was some break in the transmission.

Today morning I switched to JilFM on 531 khz and realised that they diverted from their usual pop-music programmes to a condolence format.
The cause can be read in the following announcement by Algerie Presse Service:

23 January 2015
Algeria: Death of Saudi King Abdullah - President of the Republic Abdelaziz Bouteflika has declared on Friday a three-day national mourning throughout the national territory, following the passing of Saudi Arabia King Abdullah Ibn Abdelaziz Al Saud, said a communiqué of the presidency of the Republic.
"After having learnt with deep sorrow the death of his majesty King Abdullah Ibn Abdelaziz of Saudi Arabia, President of the Republic Abdelaziz Bouteflika sent on his behalf and on behalf of the Algerian people and government his sincerest condolences to King Salman Ibn
Abdelaziz, new king of Saudi Arabia and Servant of the two Holy Places: Mecca and Medina, as well as to the Saudi brother people," the communiqué added.
"The Head of the State has also designated an important delegation led by Abdelkader Bensalah, Speaker of the Council of Nation, to represent Algeria to the funerals of the deceased king," the source added.

Clandestine 1550 Polisario Front, Rabouni, started their evening prgr as usual, with
prayer right after s/on, then some Koranic talks followed by the 45 min. segment in Castilian at 1715, with "curiosidades", curiosities, and a no less curious fq announcement reading "193 m/1550 kHz, 49 km/6300 kHz", , yes km, then music and "informativo" at 1737.

Surely, 6300 kHz is "wrong", and no wonder why we can't receive their signal
besides the one via 1550 kHz - they are on 49 *k*m!!! Well, they sure have
plenty of desert space for antenna working on 49 km...

BTW, the Castilian prgr ended at 1800, and the b/cast resumed the Arabic segment, which lasts until 2330.

Dear Friends,
In the morning of 14th this month i monitored Algeria on 531 and 549 khz. The condolence has been ended in the event of the death of Chadli Bendjedid, former president of Algeria. Regular programming of Jil Fm has been returned onto the mediumwave frequencies of 531 and 549 khz.

In Recent day's i have received both 531KHz & 549 KHz Jil FM, and signal very strong in south Devon UK at night. Certain times do have some 90's music playing, mixed with arabic pop. This morning on 19/06/12 at 04.45 BST the signal on 531 KHZ dissapeared, although on 549 KHz it didn't fade completly till 05.10 BST

Monday late afternoon and most of evening while listening to RTE 1 on 252 LW i heard a noise like a test tone in the background. By nightime it got stronger and i think it was the algerian channel that the noise came from as probably the algerian channel could of broadcasting on 254 KHz instaed of 252 KHz as an temporary fault or something.

ALGERIA
700 kHz Polisario Front, Tindouf (?), 01 SEP, 1820 (fade in)-..., Arabic, folk songs, talks; 25442, but only poor~fair performance till late in the evening.  Today (02 SEP, 1835) for instance, it's barely detected, with most of the QRM coming from ALG 702.    
Having said that, I must conclude the obvious: reception up here in the capital is worse than down on Algarve's west coast, even comparing almost equal K9AY antennae: an elevated or
raised 25 m / loop one here in Lisbon vs. an on the ground 2x25 m / loop on the coastal place.
1550 Polisario Front, Tindouf (?), remains off.

On 13 November 2015, Radio Nacional Iguazú was renamed Radio Nacional Iguazú "Horacio Quiroga" [http://www.nacionaliguazu.com.ar/?p=18527] in homage to the Uruguayan writer of Argentinian descent who lived in Misiones. Obviously it was a life surrounded by death, cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horacio_Quiroga. The imposition of the name of Horacio Quiroga on the station was accompanied by the placement of a plaque to President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, the management of RTS SE and National Radio Argentina for the decision to recover public media. Another plaque honors the employees for their commitment to this major overhaul, which included new transmitters for AM 710 kHz (25 kW) and FM 99.1 MHz (10 kW).

Dear Ydun M Ritz,
Since a couple of days I have noted a SS station on
1650 AM believed to be Argentina! My first obs. on 14 May at UTC 0253.
Playing mostly non stop mx, and just this part of identification I have noted ".... 16-50 la emisora de familia" by a male voice. Lonely on the X-band!! this morning 16 May at UTC 0244.
At UTC 0255 a compostion played similar the style of a national anthmem. At UTC 0300 midnight is in Arg.
Before this hour little more popular mx even tangos!! But after very soft and like serious mx, when night starts down there?
I have checked the latest info on the Arg site of DX-ing Info, and find a note that RDB is inactive. The two mentioned stns  in WRTHB 2008 R Renacer and R Reivir are not listed on your site.May I ask you for the latest news?
My best regards

I have made an audioclip. Time UTC 0254, with -3 for ARG, 6 mins before local midnight. The clip starts with ID "La Estacion Esperanza" with lot of ??? abt frq and later also the "La Emisora de la Familia". At last - 5 mins before ARG midnight - something sounded like NA.
I have eliminated Radio Revivir by checking their live stream on the web.
Have suspected CP in DOM (Radeco), but then again eliminated because of the mx mix and the NA.

Hasse has heard the same station almost every morning since May 14th. Does anybody have an idea of which station, this could be?
