** COLOMBIA. 5910, Oct 21 at 0612, Alcaraván Radio, nice signal with tropical music, in fact much better than degraded neighbors 5890 & 5935 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9955, Oct 21 at 0607, Brother Scare via WRMI is suffering heavy pulse jamming, altho not full-bore wall-of-noise.

** CUBA [and non]. 9490, Oct 21 at 0055, R. República is VG with ID, way over JBA jamming, talk about a XIX-XX century poet; via FRANCE. This is still registered for B-15, three separate hours at 00-03, 150 kW, 285 degrees from Issoudun, but presumably really using only two of them, covering DST changes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING …

** GREECE. 9935, Oct 20 at 0556, VOG is back on this frequency, and again with whine noise overriding Greek talk, only very poor signal now. This transmitter had not been heard for a few weeks, so we hoped it was being repaired! NOT. // 9420 is clear at 0558, but also very poor level. John Babbis, nightly monitor of …

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 9580, Oct 19 around 1240, I tune across R. Australia, and get stuck since the conversation is so interesting, “Learning from Nelson Mandela“ with John Carlin, third of three guests on today`s `Late Night Live`. Beware. At 1259 promo for `Daily Planet` coming up after the news, but NOT — RA should have suppressed that, as …

** CUBA [and non]. 7210-LSB, Oct 19 at 0102, music jamming in Spanish is louder than anti-Castro ranter N1NR; rather continuous (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. 9630, Oct 18 at 2238, Cuban-style pulse jamming, must be stray; victim would be R. Aparecida, Brasil, but unheard now, while later in evening I`ve not heard the jamming (Glenn Hauser, …

** CANADA. 2582-USB, Oct 18 at 0041, unID speech, JBA at S6 vs noise level; much weaker than 2749-USB, nothing on 2598-USB at the moment, nor 2514-USB. Canadian CG site says 2582 is used for 2-way comms, paired with 2206 kHz, from various sites in Arctic, N&L, Nova Scotia. The only marine weather broadcast we are likely to get on …

** BRAZIL [and non]. Oct 16 between 2219 and 2245, I measure a number of mostly quite weak ZY frequencies on the NRD-545 — not as precisely as I would like, as I have to adjust for a warmup (?) factor; at first it was dead on WWV, but then reading about 25 Hz low. So still consider the last …

** ALBANIA. 9849.95, Oct 16 at 0130, JBA carrier from R. Tirana, so at least we know it`s on, via off-frequency, just not propagating any more than that to North America Central (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BONAIRE. 800, Oct 16 at 0120, weak Spanish underneath KQCV OKC gospel huxter in English, making SAH of 2.53 Hz, presumed …

** ALBANIA. 9850, Oct 15 at 0138, no signal from R. Tirana. May well be on, but MUF is dropping at the end of the A-15 season. We can hardly wait until Oct 27 when English to N America moves to 7425, and to 0230-0300 UT Tue-Sun. (All RT broadcasts will be on 7 MHz band; other English at 2100-2130 …

** CUBA. 17730, Oct 12 at 2041, RHC`s (only?) Arabic announcer who speaks with extreme glottal-stopping, sounds like he`s choking. Now made even worse by rough modulation causing cut-outs, plus big hum. Wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** MEXICO. Still hearing nothing on 800 from XEROK, so I search out its website, which is the …

** BRAZIL. 4875.10, Oct 12 at 0235, Brazuguese talk at S7, the SBOB, certainly R. Roraima, Boa Vista, Rondônia on its fingerprint off-frequency.
