** INDONESIA. VOI still on 9524.9, July 22 at 1336 check in English. Het with CRI after 1400 axually sounded like less than 100 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN. RTI Japanese, 9735, accompanied by buzzy spurs July 22 at 1338 around 9730, 9740; but not the day before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. A deafening silence from WEWN, July 22 around 1330 check: no signals on 11530, 11550 or 12050, scheduled during this hour and usually inbooming here. Another closedown for local lightning? No, weather summary shows there was a cold front approaching Birmingham, but local conditions were only “broken clouds and light rain“, nothing severe.
What`s the problem? Still absent at next check 1730 when supposed to be on 11550, 15610, 17510. Nominal schedule is at

** U S A [non]. 9760, VOA via PHILIPPINES, news item at 1403 July 22 from Brian Padden in Jakarta about ambushes in mining area concluded by saying “Papua is at the eastern end of New Guinea“ — Not Indonesia`s Papua — the western end! A search at voanews.com found only one `current` story by him, a different one from July 1. Instead I found the story by searching on Papua
“There has been an ongoing separatist insurgency in Papua, which is on the eastern end of New Guinea“
I hope he at least knows which way is up. Perhaps he meant “the eastern end of Indonesia“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
