Now (1035 UTC) I hear Radio Rossii on 1143 (Exactly!) kHz at JN97ED, the program is the same as on 999 kHz. Both signals are weak and noisy now, because it’s the local noon. I’ll wait for the tests on 1089 kHz also.

Krasnodar 1089 kHz. Tests will start at 1st November.

передатчика 1089 кГц!”

Radio Rossii heard today Oct 14 on 1142 kHz with masses of Radio Rossii Kaliningrad identifications and advertising to Kaliningrad area.
The Bolshakovo radio station has been reactivated. Not without troubles, thus the 1 kHz drift 1143->1142. Stn closed down 1430z.

Radio Rossii was heard on 1143 kHz, probably testing and closed down at 1400. Does anyone know more?

it was probably test from Bolshakovo (near Kaliningrad). With a few seconds delay from 999 kHz.
Unfortunately there are no verified information about regular transmission on this freq at the moment. But I guess it makes sense. These transmissions could be directed to Baltic countries where access to Russian media is restricted. 

Igor to MWlist iog (2022-10-13)

Access to Russian media has been censored in the entire EU and Bolshakovo has 3 MW directional antennas each containing 8 ARRT antennas. They used 1.2 megawatts with them in the past. They can
easily cover entire Europe in the night. It would be nice to see them in operation again with 1.2 megawatts.

My colleague from Pskov (approx. 500 km from the Kaliningrad) specified 150 kW in the description of his video.
Another colleague in Yaroslavl region got strong signal on long wire (but it doesn’t look like 1.2 MW)

Igor to MWlist iog (2022-10-13)

People had already come out in favor of bringing Kaliningrad back to life.

New Zealand

On 30 August, MBIE have allocated the licence for AM frequency 1566 kHz in Wellington to Radio Tarana (NZ) Ltd for $16,906.35. This amount is less than the $22,000 paid by World TV Ltd in January 2015 for the licence, and the $26,664 in May 2019 with the licence being cancelled, presumably because broadcasts were not underway within 2 years of the licence being granted. (David Kaio, who says he doesn’t recall MBIE inviting expressions of interest for the licence before allocating it to Tarana.)

URY 1350 York.
This station should be returning to regular programming on 26 September according to online schedule on their website.
Perhaps they may be testing before hand this weekend?
