King´s Village DX Station February: DXAB Davao 1296 kHz
Well, once again a Philippines MW station has been announced as a station of the month. This station has been very hard to hear earlier, but this winter I realized that it is a bit higher than other stations (mainly China, Taiwan, Japan NHK and later Afghanistan) on this crowded channel 1296 kHz. It is good the European stations are not interfering durin the afternoon hours. DXAB could be heard only in the beginning of February and it seems not be able to be heard now in March as it is closing down around 14 utc. At the picture is an SDR-Radio IQ-analysis of the signals on 1296 (6th Dec 2010)showing the DXAB signal before it´s close down, it is measured about 30 Hz above the others. DXAB (1296 kHz Davao City) "Radyo Patrol" is an AM station of ABS-CBN in the Philippines. The station's studio is located at ABS-CBN Broadcast Complex, Broadcast Avenue, Matina hills, Davao City and it's transmitter is located at Km 4 McArthur Highway, Matina in Davao City,DXAB Davao also simulcasts ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs programs such as TV Patrol Southern Mindanao and TV Patrol (Wikipedia).
The slogan of the station is "UNA sa Balita, UNA sa Public Service".
