** CANADA. Yes, CFRX appears to be off the air again, after a good run of several months. No sign of it on 6070 May 29 at 0529 or at 1327. What`s the problem this time? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. The DentroCuban Jamming Command is still attacking WRMI 9955; Friday May 29 at 0519, Frecuencia al Día, the DX program had heavy buzz bursts on top of it during reports from Julio Pineda in Guatemala, and Tony Herrera in Spain.
RHC missing from recent new frequency 6010 May 29 at 0530, just weak Spanish talk from Mexico and/or Colombia, het. RHC still on 6000 as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also RUSSIA
** FRANCE [non]. RFI still on strike, renewed day after day by the union member votes. But the fill music is very enjoyable. Good reception here during 2100-2130 via Guiana French on 17630, supposed to be in Spanish; May 28 at 2119 surprised by RFI ID in Russian, then eclectic mix of songs in French, hilife, and English “Like a King“ until abrupt cutoff at 2130*. Meanwhile much weaker 17620 was not in // like it had been on previous days; other music and talk mixed in via Guiana French to Africa, so perhaps that service was not en grève at the moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RUSSIA [and non]. VOR Chinese service on 12000 via Khabarovsk the worst yet, May 29 at 1335, very strong, extremely distorted with buzz, unstable carrier; RHC theme music barely audible underneath at one point (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U K [non]. 11855 with heavy collision about equal levels from WYFR with Foro Abierto in Spanish and BBCWS in Luso Portuguese, May 28 at 2038-2058:30* when BBC quit but WYFR continued. WYFR is at 222 degrees for Central America, while BBC is 114 degrees from Ascension for Angola and Mozambique. There is really no need for such a clash, with plenty of open frequencies on 25m for the BBC semihour at 2030, but it must have been decided that neither causes significant interference in the other`s target area. It`s quite a different story in Oklahoma (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
