	           **** 26-30 MHz review ****
	      by Ary Boender (e-mail: ary@luna.nl)
			  
========================================================================

During the past few years I received quite a lot of requests for a
special about the "non standard" stations that are typical for the 
frequency range of 26 MHz and higher. I finally have compiled a list 
that includes the most often reported stations between 26 and 30 MHz.
I do however realize that the list is far from complete.

Except for the regular services as found in frequency guides (maritime,
fixed, amateur, CB and broadcasting stations), many other stations can 
be found between 26 and 30 MHz. Lots of fishing beacons, for instance. 
I have not listed them in this document but I do mention them from
time to time in the Utility Round-up column in the WUN newsletter. Also 
not listed are the pirate stations that pop up every now and then or 
the digital utility stations. So what did I list? You will find a large
transport selection, mainly taxi companies that are often observed in 
the 26 MHz band; further broadcasting station studio feeds; an item 
about Irish church transmissions on 27 MHz; and an Australian station 
overview.

As I already said, I did not have the intention to jot down the ultimate
High End HF frequency list but I hope that it contains enough info for
you to identify a number of these "non standard" stations that make this
part of the spectrum interesting. As this is a "living" list, it is 
quite possible that a number of the listed stations are no longer on
the air or that other stations occupy the frequencies. 

I really have to say THANKS!!! to all the dxers who have helped me with 
this list, especially Dave Crawford, Guido Schotmans, Max van Arnhem, 
Roger Caird and Dmitri. I couldn't have done it without you, guys. 

Comments and corrections are most welcome.

::: BROADCASTING STATIONS

Broadcast Auxiliary Stations. Studio links and cue stations explained 
by our Belgian friend Guido Schotmans. 

http://dxing.hypermart.net/

A special kind of usage of the high frequencies is found around 26 
MHz: the so-called Studio links and Cue stations (*). Especially in 
the United states this kind of station link is still in use. A couple
of them can also be found in Europe and Latin America. The number of 
these stations is small. Most of these stations are probably using much 
higher frequencies nowadays, because they are less affected by long 
distance propagation. 

The system of Cue links is mostly used for "pre-delay" monitoring by 
the stations' journalists and other personnel when doing remote 
broadcasts. The main broadcasting channel of the station is very often 
delayed for about seven seconds to allow the studio operator to remove 
anyone using profane language on call in shows. These feeds can also be 
interrupted by the studio operator to give ques and information to the 
personnel in the field. Stations using this kind of link usually use 
the narrow FM mode (NFM). For certain receivers used by hobbyists, this 
can be a problem, but a lot of modern tabletop receivers have this mode 
on board. It is also possible to tune to a station in NFM by using the 
AM mode and tune a little bit aside from the nominal frequency. In fact 
this is making use of an unintended side effect of this mode. Besides, 
there are also a few station links that make use of AM-mode. 

Of course you have to take the propagation rules into account when 
you'll try to hear these stations. Reception will only succeed when 
the reflection points in the ionosphere between transmitter and receiver 
will be in daylight. When you want to hear WFLA from Tampa, Florida on 
25870 kHz -the station that guarantees to be most successful- you'll 
better try in the late afternoon. That is, assumed you are listening in 
Western Europe. Stations coming from the east are better heard in the 
morning. 

Reception is usually not very stable, but every now and than the signal 
holds at a fair to good level. Especially around 1530 hours UTC you can 
expect the signals to rise out of the noise. It's also interesting that 
you don't need specialized antennas to receive these NFM-studio links. 
It costs a lot more of an effort to receive local US stations on the 
medium wave band. 

Details about these stations are very scarce. They are not found in 
publications like the World Radio and TV Handbook or in one of the 
Klingenfuss publications although these are in fact utility stations. 
During last year, there was a lot of discussion on the internet 
mailinglists. The list on the previous page was compiled from own 
observations and from messages that appeared in the Hardcore and A-DX 
mailinglists. This list of studio links and Cue stations is most 
probably not complete and maybe we can discover new stations according 
as the propagation conditions proceed.

Finally, don't think that everything that sounds like a broadcast 
station on this high end of the shortwave spectrum is a studio or Cue 
link. There are also a lot of harmonics (multiple of the transmitter's 
fundamental frequency) around there produced by transmitters mostly of 
an older generation. Furthermore, it appears also that the CB-folks 
relay local broadcasting stations. 

(*) A Cue is a prompt and the most likely to be heard in connection 
    with studio work i.e. 'Cue track 1' would mean get track one ready 
	to play. (Jim Watson, IBB Support Engineer, Sri Lanka)
    Correct English word is cue, but some Americans tend to use the
	word que
	
Wishing you a good Cue DX.

IRELAND  Irish church services have been heard in the 27 MHz range on
Sundays during the 1200 and 1300 UTC. The practice of broadcasting 
Irish Church services on CB frequencies has been going on for several
years now. Both the standard US Citizen Band channels and the UK CB
channels are used. Housebound parishioners (the sick or the elderly) 
are issued with pre-tuned CB capable receivers and can listen in to 
the Mass from home. In Dublin there are at least 27 channels in use
catering for about 45 churches, and churches in Cork, Limerick and
Galway are also jumping on the band-wagon.
"The details below only refer to Churches in the Dublin area. It is
quite possible that what you have been hearing are from other cities 
in Ireland, or even the UK. It can be quite difficult to identify 
which churches are using these frequencies. The only hints available 
are during the "church notices" read out during the Mass, where a
comment might give an idea of the area the church is in. Unfortunately,
they never identify themselves! Most activity is during the weekends:
Saturday evening, [Irish local time = UTC] Sunday morning 1000-1300
UTC and evening 1800-2000 and weekday evenings 1800-2000. Funerals
usually 1700 UTC and then 1000 UTC the following day & weddings can 
be at any time!"

On Sunday, January 13, I heard activity on four different frequencies.
Roger Caird had this to say about these different channels: 27730, 
1235, Church organ and chior. Prayer by Priest. "Frequency is actually
27.73125 NFM (UK CB channel 14). There are three churches in the Dublin
area on this frequency. The one I have logged most often at this time 
on a Sunday is actually quite close to my home. Drumcondra Corpus
Christi, Griffith Avenue Dublin, 9 Ireland."
27780, 1240, Church service, with CB QRM. "This frequency (27.78125
NFM, UK CB Channel 19) is also shared by 3 churches. This is probably 
a Roman Catholic church on the Navan Road, on the north side of Dublin.
27790, 1255, Chior then Priest. "27.79125 NFM (UK CB Channel 20). I'm
not too sure about this one. The frequency is shared by two churches
outside Dublin. The most likely, going by the time is: Roman Catholic
Church, Kill-o-the Grange, Dun Laoghaire, Co.Dublin."
27680, 1312, Prayer, Communion given by Priest. "27.68125 NFM (UK
Channel 09) This church is in the same general area as the one on
27.79125. The time of the Tx is a bit odd. I'm assuming you are using
UTC? Most Masses start at 1000, 1100, or 1200 or at 15 minute intervals
in the hours and 1312 would have been a very long Mass! I've noted that
this transmitter is a bit over modulated. There are several churches in
this suburb, but I think the most likely one is St.Michaels Church,
Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire." 
"I suppose they must be using something other than standard CB rigs,
I don't think an over-the-counter CB base station would stand up to
several hours of continuous TX several times a week. Some churches 
leave the TX live between masses! They do appear to use normal 27 MHz
1/2 wave whips in most cases. I'd suspect they use something around 
25W. Some frequencies are almost unusable on occasions with up to three
churches transmitting simultaneously. It probably doesn't affect the
listeners who will be within a mile or so of their church. My 1/2
wave GP picks them up from about 20 miles away. If you do try for a 
QSL, (I doubt that they are equipped with QSL cards!) that might be 
able to tell you what company set up the equipment for them. These
people might be able to give you more accurate details of what church
are on what frequencies. For your information, the UK CB frequencies 
are from 27.62125 to 27.99125 at 1 kHz spacing, i.e. 27.62125, 27.63125,
27.64125 etc. all NFM. Some of the Tx on the US CB frequencies use AM."
(Caird [Ireland] Jan 20/3 via Hodgson)
27225 is the frequency I heard on Jan 20 at 1225 [Johnson]. There is a
church in the Dublin area who transmits on this frequency but I haven't
identified it yet. Some transmissions can be very difficult to identify.
Sometimes you get a hint of the area of the city the church is located
in, by the comments of the priest. (Caird Jan 23 via Johnson).
Many Churches nationwide broadcast on the CB radio band (27-28 MHz)
during mass times. There are 80 channels used for CB. All churches
transmit using narrow FM NFM. All the churches use one of the 80
channels many nearby churches use different channels. I have personally
heard them in Dublin, Wicklow and Waterford. Some known frequencies are
given below: 
27.89125 Holy Name Church Beechwood Avenue
27.78125 Corpus Christie Drumcondra
27.73125 Mobhi Road Church
27.405 Three Patrons Rathgar
27.375 Westland Row Church

The full set of 80 channels are available from CB radio Web Sites such
as http://www.radio.gov.uk/publication/press/1999/12feb99.htm  They are
the CEPT FM (Band D) and UK FM (27/81) frequencies. The local priests
recommend cheap radios which cover these frequencies to the old and
infirm who can't attend the masses. Normal radios cannot tune in to
these. [Incidentally, this problem also arose here in the UK as the
Radio Authority back in 1999 issued a press release confirming these
relays of church services were illegal in the UK: DTI Press Release -
12 February 1999. 

The Radiocommunications Agency confirmed today that it is illegal to 
use Citizen's Band Radio for broadcasting church services. The
announcement follows the discovery last year that a number of churches
were using CB Radio to broadcast church services to parishioners unable
to attend the service. Whilst the Radiocommunications Agency recognise
the value of broadcasting services to the elderly and housebound,
Citizen's Band radio is not an appropriate band for broadcasting. It 
is designed for short term social or business conversation and lengthy
services can jam the channels.] (Anon Aug 31 Irish Radiowaves message
board via Pennington BDXC Jan 21)

These are totally illegal as CB radio is only intended for personal
speech (no music allowed) two way communication. In addition many of
these Church broadcasters run far more than the permitted 4 watts.  
Here in Carrickfergus I can hear at least three church broadcasters on
27 MHz although I have yet to ascertain the location of these. (Mike
ibid.) Cheap radios that include the CB band are used to tune in. 
(David ibid.) I originally come from Ireland, so know just a little
about the situation there. I think, as you suggest, these Mass
Broadcasts probably are 'illegal' ones, I suspect, however that unless
there are serious complaints from CBers on 27 MHz that the Authorities
will turn a "blind eye", as they apparently do to long term "illegal"
Evangelical Broadcasts on 3.910Mhz etc, on Sunday Afternoons/Evenings.
So far as I am aware these have been left untouched in the recent
crack-down on Pirate Radio Activity in the Irish Republic. (Fletcher
BDXC Jan 22)
There certainly is a lot of such activity here. Only up the road there
is a church doing it every Sunday. (Murphy [County Cork, Ireland] WDXC
via Barraclough via Hauser DXLD) CB is widely used in remote parts of
Ireland as well as FM relays (Cashin ibid.) 
Finally, a tuning tip. Tune in sideband as it is easier to hear them 
in SSB, albeit a bit distorted at times. If the signal improves, try 
AM. If it continues to improve then try FM mode. (Johnson Jan 23)

With the help of Roger, I have made a compilation of the transmissions
