** BRAZIL. 11780, Jan 13 at 0225, RNA/RNB is missing except for a noise blob, and furthermore there is a wideband noise level roughly 11.3 to 11.8 MHz, which I suspect is from the 11780 transmitter wildly manfunxioning (while 6180 is OK). The wideband noise on 25 m was first reported at 0150 by Gilles Letourneau, Montréal to the DXLD …

** AUSTRALIA. 2485, Jan 12 at 1352, some music is audible on very poor signal; has to be VL8K, which rarely surpasses a JBA carrier, still the case on 2325, VL8T; the other NT one still on 4835, much easier to hear, VL8A (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 11945, Jan 12 at 1522, R. Australia, …

** BANGLADESH [and non]. 4750, Jan 11 at 1333, pileup of two or three Asians, where they can`t figure out that shifting to different frequencies would help them all to be heard. If it`s this bad on the opposite worldside, it must be awful in Asia. Atop signal has M&W talking, not Chinese, and unseems Indonesian either, so that leaves …

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, Wed Jan 9 at 1420, fascinating show about color perception (dogs see no red; some rare humans have cones for four primary colors instead of three, and some shrimp species has 20! Why?). Turns out to be `Radio Lab` from WNYC as widely heard on public radio in the US, but for SW, we are indebted to …

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, Jan 8 circa 1350, RA is interviewing a bubbly Brit/Canuckess, Mysti Vine, lamenting that there are so few black burlesque artistes. Axually, I think she enjoys standing out; concluding with reference to her site, http://www.comicgoddess.com — “The World’s Only Black Burlesque, Variety & Striptease Comedic Artist…(probably)“. Checking the gallery, she may be sufficient, but not especially busty …

** CUBA. 5855, Jan 7 at 0537, YL 5-digit Spanish number group, “38500“ just one, and on to digital tones, etc., etc., alternating. Nothing unusual noted on RHC frequencies tonight. Dave Hughes replied to my previous report: “6165 numbers snafu last night — Hi Glenn, I saw your log of 6165 last night. I was perusing the recent Enigma newsletter …

** CUBA. 6165, Jan 6 at 0609, RHC English is instead open carrier/dead air in yet another SNAFU. Along with 6010 and 5040, this is its strongest frequency here; those and weaker // 6060, 6125, were unaffected. At 0626 on 6165, guess what, digital noises, interrupted by Spanish spy numbers! YL with one 5-digit group only, “45411“, then back to …

** CHINA. Firedrake Jan 4 before 2300:13970, very poor at 2255; none lower 1355-1400 Jan 5, none found 12-16 MHz(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** IRAN. 17550, Jan 5 at 1401, Arabic with good signal, but somewhat distorted modulation, typical of IRIB, yes, 1030-1630, 500 kW, 259 degrees via Kamalabad. IRIB modulation doesn`t get as bad as Cairo`s (Glenn …

** AUSTRALIA. 5995, Jan 4 at 1453, Elgar`s “Enigma Variations“, great classical music playing on RA, unusual for them, but most welcome! Until: faded out incomplete at 1459 for RA promo and then news, also on // 11945, while 9580 was already off at 1458, even more rudely. I suppose RA considered it merely fill music for some program missing …

** AUSTRALIA. 6007 & 6033, approx., distorted FMy spurblobs matching modulation on the RA Shepparton 6020 transmitter halfway between, Jan 2 at 1320. I was expecting this since the same transmitter is on 5995 after 1400 and sporadically spurblobbing 13 kHz above and below it. Jan 3 at 1348 check: no blobs around 6020 today. Not to be confused with …

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Jan 1 at 0650, Caribbean Beacon is off the air, but nothing much in its absence. Later after sunrise, 11775 is back as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BRAZIL. 11780 // 6180, Jan 1 at 0637, R. Nacional Rio de Janeiro ID after promos for EBC services, webcasts. Rio station is an anomaly, maybe …

** AUSTRIA. 9830, Dec 31 at 2118, African English accent about Jesus of Nazareth, with usual RTTY QRM, so another station ignoring that, or maybe it`s no problem in CIRAF 46, the W African target from Niger & Nigeria westward, of AWR, 2100-2130, 300 kW, 210 degrees from Moosbrunn. BTW, the latest `Wavescan` schedule from Adrian Peterson shows it`s not …
