** CUBA. 6100, Aug 16 at 0613 survey of RHC English frequencies: this one is S9+30 of dead air. 6145 & 6000 are equally undermodulated, at S9+10 and S9+20/10 respectively. 6060 is also S9+20/10 but with good modulation; and 5040 is off after 0600. Somethings are always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** GUATEMALA. 4055, Aug …

** BANGLADESH. 15505, August 15 at 1358:48.5 again like yesterday BB mis-timesignal ends more than a minute early on VP signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA [and non]. 6230, August 15 at 0149, no signal, so I expect on my downward bandscan I will find 6145 and/or 6060 missing from RHC, the co-conspirators producing the leapfrog mixing …

** BANGLADESH. 15505, August 14 at 1356, open carrier from Bangladesh Betar prior to 1400 Urdu service is on already, and S2, better than JBA so maybe today I can finally catch the mis-timesignal. Recognizable IS starts circa 1358:20, and yes! 5+1 pips end with a higher prolonged one at 1358:48.5* so they are *way* fast now (Glenn Hauser, OK, …

** CUBA. 11820, August 13 at 0058, JBA carrier which I think matches 11830, now a quite audible spur out of 11840 RHC Spanish. So 11820 would be a leapfrog mixing product of 11840 over its 11830 spur another 10 kHz lower (besides Saudi until 2257 on 11820+, only listee on 11820 in Aoki is CRI Cantonese via Xian until …

** BANGLADESH. 15505, August 12 at 1359, enough JBA signal from Bangladesh Betar to detect IS or opening music to Urdu service, and talk by 1359.5, but no timesignal audible by 1401. Perhaps they have prudently dispensed with it, since they could never get it right? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** JAPAN. 3945, Saturday August 12 at 1140, …

** GERMANY [non]. 21780, Aug 11 at 1646, weak English talk at S3, SSOB on 13m, compared to only other one, JBA 21525 WRMI Radio Africa. Might be taken for BBC, but it`s really Deutsche Welle`s only remaining English hour, from 1600, and probably our best frequency for it, 250 kW at 65 degrees from ASCENSION per Aoki; by comparison …

** BANGLADESH. 15505, Aug 10 at 1355, JBA carrier already on, presumed BB prior to 1400 Urdu. I strain to hear any audio by 1400, but just too weak for the IS; can almost imagine a timesignal circa 1359. Would those who hear it well (not via web receivers) please provide the precise time the pips end (Glenn Hauser, OK, …

** CHINA. 15570, Aug 8 at 2315, very poor in Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jammer, typical pushy programming, probably propaganda, against VOA Mandarin via Tinian, this hour only per Aoki. Nothing else extra-continental audible on 19mb (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. A festival of `frogs on the 25m band tnx to RHC`s piling up high-power transmitters here, Aug …

** ARMENIA. 9975, August 6 at 2150 check, not even a JBA carrier detectable from the surprise 60th anniversary broadcast of Radio Luxembourg which was widely heard in Europe. EiBi shows scheduled only this date between 18 and 22. I am aware of no advance publicity for this in the DX press, tsk2. Huge splash here from bigsig 9980 WWCR …
