CRI Japanese on 1044kHz has been on air again.
Japanese service of China Radio International announced on March 25 2022 that their medium wave transmission on 1044kHz at 1100-1600UT will be off the air due to the transmitter maintenance until September 25 2022. Actually the transmission has been again on air from October 2 2022. The transmission on 1044kHz is over NRTA Transmitting Station 623 in Henglin town, Wujin district, Changzhou City, Jangsu province, east of Nanjing, using Harris DX-1000 transmitter. Maximum power is 1000kW, but WRTH2022 lists as 600kW. The signal seems to be a little weaker than before. Might they further reduce the power?
