** BULGARIA. R. Bulgaria, 15700, peppy folk music at 1347 Friday April 3; good signal but occasional audio dropouts. One can expect a good variety of music from day to day on this transmission (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Haven`t heard Firedrake on 8400 lately, so I suppose Sound of Hope has moved. April 3 at 1305 there was FD on 9000 and 9300 with fair signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. Checked 9545 for R. República at 0103 April 3, but only jamming audible; however on 9810 a bit of talk was audible under the jamming there, so perhaps R.R. via Sackville is on 9545 at 23-01, and back to 9810 after 01? VOR originally planned to use French Guiana on 9810 to South America in Spanish at 00-02 in A-09, but apparently is not doing so.
We have the dentro- and fuera-Cubans to thank for messing up 9545, and also 9541.5 Solomon Islands, since the jamming runs long past the few hours R.R. is using it; April 3 at 0539 the jamming was still audible on 9545, plus much stronger phony-CW jammer on 9565, both against nothing. Worth noting that the 9565 signals were much stronger than RHC in between on 9550 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also JAPAN
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 6250, group singing hilife-like music, April 3 at 0543 with usual pulsing ute QRM on the side. Presumed RNGE, Malabo, as previously heard irregularly, the best time of day to catch it here when active (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ETHIOPIA. R. Ethiopia domestic service, presumed, on 7110 at 0541 April 3 HOA music, 0548 brief announcement in Amharic? More music. Fair signal with deep fades down to nothing and back up, still audible at 0600. I assume it must be this, lingering in the hamband; frequently reported from NAm around 0400. Aoki B-08 had this taking a break at 0500-0800 M-F (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST
** JAPAN [and non]. NHKWNRJ`s Russian service at 0530-0600 is now inbooming on 11715, 35 degrees from Yamata toward E Siberia, and onward to NAm, as noted April 3 at 0537, but also on weaker // 11760 at 330 degrees, and no trace of RHC which had been occupying the frequency until 0700 but not always propagating this late at night. RHC`s online schedule http://www.radiohc.cu/espanol/frecuencia/frecuencias-espanol.htm
as usual out of date, “hasta marzo“ does show 11760 in English at 0500-0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SWEDEN. 15735, R. Sweden, English with George Wood et al., fair signal at 1346 April 3. So on a good day we can still hear R. Sweden in the mornings, tho beamed elsewhere (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WWRB spurs from 9385 audible again April 3 at 1306 with Brother Scare on approx. 9317 and 9453 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 9945 with open carrier Friday April 3 at 1340, tone test at 1350. What`s this? 1400 VOA jingle and opening music show. It`s on the schedule for Indonesian via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, but may not be daily.
15725, good signal in S Asian language April 3 at 1432. Scheduled as VOA`s Urdu service a.k.a. Radio Aap ki Dunyaa, at 1400-1500 via KUWAIT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
