** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, June 10 from 1327 as I am up earlier than usual. There is only one signal heard u.o.s., mostly presumably against Sound of Hope inaudible here. 15340 S8/9+10. No sign of scheduled Romania. I put that on the backup PL-880 to make // comparisons onward, u.o.s.

** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, June 10 at 1324, KBS World Radio so-called NAm service in English is nearing its solsticial peak, a hefty S4-S7 into deep North America, about COVID-19, vax stats in ROK; 1351 in a travelogue about hiking around Jeju Island at sunrise; now it`s S7-S9; 1400 into Korean hour. Most of the year this emission is a JBA carrier or less, because it`s far too high a band for a mostly-dark high-latutude path, but which is now getting max insolation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2090)
** SPAIN. 17855, June 10 after 2200, REE to NAm is holding up well; Thursday is a day skipping English, but what`s on in Spanish? `Amigos de la Onda Corta`, with the familiar voice of Antonio Buitrago, who got a promotion to run the station. I missed the first few minutes, but this edition is an interview about “derecho de acceso“ at RTVE itself. It seems this is an issue about various groups getting airtime at the domestic public broadcaster; and there is now a bureaucratic procedure for making their case via a form on the website.
With `shortwave` in its name, this has been classified as a `DX` program, and the outro does mention DX among other topix, but as much as I have been familiar with it, axual DXing and SW have seldom been covered, rather media in the broadest sense. There is a huge archive of podcasts like all their other programs, 371 of these here with titles for each, not about SW or DX in the first two pages inspected: https://www.rtve.es/alacarta/audios/amigos-de-la-onda-corta/ Most of them are a little too long to fit into 30-minute slots.
The page header shows airtimes, but altho in UT are obviously keyed for winter time, now one UT hour earlier than: “Amigos de la onda corta — Jueves a las 17.00 y 23.00 horas, viernes a las 02.00 horas y sábados a las 13.00 horas UTC“
I do notice that none of them including this one are to be found in the WWDXC A21 schedule of SWL/Media Programs in English, German, Spanish, https://www.wwdxc.de/swl.pdf (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** UGANDA [non]. 15170, Thu June 10 after 1500, NO signal from the strange unID target broadcast seemingly via Romania; it was scheduled in HFCC to skip Wednesday, which it did, but to resume Thursday. What`s next on Friday+? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2090)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2089 monitoring: confirmed UT Thu June 10 at 0130 on WRMI 50100, S9/+10 into Bonaire SDR. As usually happens, the preacher preceding is too long, gets cut off for ID at 0129.5 before he can give his contact info, tsk.
