MARIANAS, ISLAS
[Saipan/Tinian] Is Saipan really back on with RFA ?
Hi Bill, Tnx for your reports on this. Since RFA is cagey about sites (other? Asia?), and since I have had no other reports about Saipan being in service again, I still have my doubts. What do you think? Are those broadcasts continuing post-summit?
(Glenn to Bill Harms, dxld March 6)
Hi Glenn, I am listening to RFA in Korean 9985 kHz from an SDR in Seoul
with a good signal. There is no signal on their alt frequency of 5885 kHz.
They were talking about the missile site activity that we have been hearing about in the news. Now they are talking about a British human rights group addressing women’s right in North Korea.
The signal is strong enough to be from Saipan, or anywhere else in the West Pacific, East Asia area. Hope this helps …
(Bill Harms, dxld March 8)
Meanwhile, March Australian DX News has several reports alleging that RFA Saipan is back on, all by Rob Wagner, Victoria:
9455 kHz RFA, Agignan Point. The first of the Saipan is now up and
running again after major repairs and reconstruction from the recent
cyclone. Mandarin to EaAS at 2030 UT, a good signal at first but
deteriorated by 2055 UT, with the usual Firedrake jamming, 22 Febr.
(Rob Wagner-Vic-AUS VK3BVW, March 9)
9985 kHz RFA, Agingan Point. This txer now back online after repairs, with s/on in Korean at 2100, very good signal at first and no jamming heard.
However, by 2145, the signal became pretty scratchy, which is typical of this band at this time of day here. S/off at 2200 UT on Febr 22.
(Rob Wagner-Vic-AUS VK3BVW, March 9)
17660 kHz RFA, Agignan Point. Mandarin to EAs at 0610 UT. Back up on air after the recent cyclone. Fair signal but heavy CNR jamming dominated until s/off 0700 UT on Febr 23. (Rob Wagner-Vic-AUS VK3BVW, March 9)
How do you KNOW these are Saipan rather than substitute site(s)?
RFA cannot be trusted to verify accurate info about their own clandestine broadcasts.
We need someone(s) to perform direxion-finding on these, such as TDOA.
{ TDOA not easy on long signal distances in Pacific area, wb.}

Re: Saipan
My observations on Febr 22 & 23 were made after I received advice from a USAGM monitor here in VK. He had received information that five freqs were in operation on Saipan island relay site. At that time, Tinian was still not on the air.
There may well be more Saipan freqs now in operation.
As of today, I am still not aware if Tinian is on air yet.
(Rob Wagner-Vic-AUS VK3BVW, March 9)
9985.036 kHz, March 10 at 1502 UT, Korean at S9, off-frequency, presumably RFA. Once again, Saipan more likely than Tinang to be askew, altho Thailand is capable of that too. This was not on before 1500 UT.
As for previous doubts that 9985 kHz was really reactivated Saipan,
Wolfgang Bueschel forwarded a bunch of IBB auto-monitoring captures labeled SAI for that, so apparently is, if we are willing to take their word for it. Maybe one transmitter was not so destroyed after all, retaining and resuming signature capability of offfrequenciness.
