** MEXICO. 800, Jan 16 at 0700, choral NA is playing, multi-verse until 0705 full XEROK Radio Cañón ID “desde la frontera norte“, full, but not including any assertion of current power level, presumably 50 kW once again after a long QRP hiatus — equipment problem, or deliberate downgrade? It seemed the latter, like with co-Juárez station XEJ 970. No …

** ALBANIA. 7464.98, Jan 16 at 0253, I check R. Tirana just in time to find it`s now made my recommended frequency change to “7465“ from 7470, since IBB Kuwait usurped that frequency. Poor signal, just music fill now at end of the 0230 English to North America (except UT Mondays), but nothing audible on 7470, and RT IS is …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 7470, Jan 15 at 0223, R. Tirana IS is playing, poor signal, but at least nothing much from IBB Kuwait underneath, which had been a JBA carrier earlier. I understand the co-channel is much worse in eastern North America, so another frequency change for Tirana is contemplated. I suggest a minor shift back to 7465, but …

** GREECE. 9420.01, Jan 14 at 0653, VOG now almost on-frequency and good audio without the whine, so got the original transmitter going again? Conversation in Greek (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5910, Jan 14 at 1353, Shiokaze is still here and still propagating a few minutes after our sunrise, no obvious jamming but may …

** BOLIVIA. 6134.81, Jan 13 at 0121, Spanish no longer in the clear but with reactivated het from 6135.2 Brasil, q.v. However, I can get rid of that by LSB tuning, PBS of 0.25 and BWC of 2.50, to use NRD-545 terminology; soon rewarded at 0122 by IDs for Radio Santa Cruz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BRAZIL. …

** EGYPT. 9745.05, Jan 11 at 0637, R. Cairo manages some suptorted modulation in Arabic this time, talk and music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** GERMANY. 15205, Jan 11 at 1431, S9 open carrier/dead air; 1433 gospel huxter in English cuts on, rough modulation at first, praying for a very happy Christmas, a bit late now; The People`s …

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated: http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html ** CUBA. 6100, Sunday Jan 10 at 0715 or so, Esperanto confirmed from RHC, but by 0725 it`s already off, replaced by undermodulated Spanish which is not supposed to be on any frequency at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** INDONESIA. 4749.95 approx., Jan 10 at 1415, very poor talk vs CODAR on …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 7470, Jan 10 at 0149, very poor S4 carrier, no doubt the usurping IBB Kuwait transmitter. How will it compare to R. Tirana when it comes on? Recheck 0216, RT IS is already on, S5 with fast SAH from Kuwait since Shijak is always slightly off-frequency to the low side. Over here, Tirana can overcome it, …

** BRAZIL. 11855.02, Jan 8 at 0557, R. Aparecida edging ever-closer to its nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** EGYPT. 9964.55, Jan 8 at 0113, R. Cairo Arabic service is open carrier/dead air, slight whine unlike 9420 Greece. At least it`s 1 kHz closer to 9965 than last check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** GREECE. 9420, …

** BIAFRA [non]. Re this log: “11599.98, Jan 2 at 1916, VP S5 signal with traces of modulation, presumably R. Biafra via BULGARIA“ Oops, I jumped the gun as Biafra doesn`t start until 2000. Nothing is known on 11600 in the previous hour, altho BULGARIA had registered it as available starting at 1700. Something else via Secretbrod? (Glenn Hauser, OK, …

** ALBANIA. Tim Hendel in Alabama says he was hearing no programming on the Albanian hour to North America at 00-01 UT Jan 6, on 7465, or on webcast — just interval signal for 60 minutes. So we make a point of checking the English broadcast at 0230 on 7470. I find a poor carrier at 0227 but no IS …

** CUBA. 6000, Jan 4 at 0658, RHC in Spanish instead of English, with efemérides for 4 de enero, suptorted modulation; while the other ex-English frequencies, 6165, 6100, 6060 and 5040 are on open carrier for a bit longer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. 17730, Jan 4 at 1509, RHC is AWOL from this frequency supposed to …
