** CHINA. Unlike the day before, not a single Firedrake was heard in 8-19 MHz bandscanning Aug 26 between 1400 and 1500. Nothing much else from Asia above 12 MHz, but some signals below. Only Firedrakes audible Aug 27 at 1340-1343, 9000 and 10210, both poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. Seldom heard leapfrog from RHC on …

** ECUADOR [non]. Monitored the Aug 22 DX Partyline via WRMI, 9955, Wed Aug 26 at 1429-1444 atop the DentroCuban Jamming Command`s pulsing [see also USA]. This edition produced from Loja consisted of the monthly JSWC DX report; some items from Sheldon Harvey`s Radio HF Internet Newsletter; and some logs of Aug 18 from Stewart MacKenzie. It seems that Allen …

** CHINA. Firedrakes were back in force on August 25: at 1237, good on 9000; at 1249 on 10210, and in the usual mix on 12040. At 1255 on 13970 and 14420 (ex-14430); at 1257 poor on 15755; at 1300 listening to 10210 as it went to open carrier at TOH; at 1337 still on 13970 and 14420 but poor; …

** CANADA [and non]. CHU, 7850, at 1413 Aug 24 time pips mixed with some hashy QRM, and also 2-way SSB slightly on the hi side, language not determined. The hashy QRM I would have assumed to be coming from my VCRs or TVs, but has been reported by others as a CHU transmitter defect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING …

** BIAFRA [non]. Sometime during the 19-20 UT Friday Aug 21 hour I tuned to 15665 for about four sesquiseconds to reconfirm VOBI still there via WHRI, and it was. BTW, James MacDonell in NW Nigeria tells me that as of Aug 23, R. Nigeria Enugu is gone again from 6025 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** U S …

** CANADA. CHU is rarely strong enough here to tell, but as Liz Cameron, MI, has been noting, there is some buzz mixing with the 7850 signal, Aug 22 at 1221. It`s more obvious with BFO on, and the transmitter seems slightly unstable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Searching every kHz between 8 and 19 MHz for …

** AUSTRALIA. RA is regular on 15240, 15160, but not often heard on 15415, as it was Aug 21 at 0517 with song, in English? Not // the others. 15415 is 329 degrees from Shep, alternating English and Indonesian and this was during a semi-hour in the latter service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** AUSTRALIA. 13635 and 13660 …

** CANADA. Big het between 6160.0/6160.9, Aug 20 at 0549 with CBC in English. As Carlos Gonçalves just reported from Portugal, CKZN is off-frequency, and here it clashes with CKZU, the two about equal level and inseparable [the only spelling accepted by MS Word]. Normally they are never zero-beat, but maybe 15 Hz apart producing a fast ripple SAH. Still …

** AUSTRIA. 15595, Aug 18 at 1506 hymn in English “I will trust in you“, into language talk. Umlauts reminded me of Hungarian, so I did not think it was Turkish, but so listed in Aoki as AWR at 1500-1530 only via Moosbrunn. Careful: at 1530 Vatican ecumenically takes over 15595 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA. 9625 …

T-storms kept developing right over Enid all evening, UT Aug 17, so computers and antennas unplugged, leaving us nothing else to do but monitor SW in primetime when we usually do not, with inside antennas only, pretty long wrapped around the ceiling several times, and presumably less direxional than the usual E-W longwire. T-storm noise was heavy, but less human-made …

** CHINA [and non]. No stand-alone Firedrake heard on usual frequencies Aug 16 around 1230. But at 1238 did hear it on 12040 mixing with CNR1 jamming and VOA target; and on 11710 // CNR1 jamming mixing with N Korean music, Commies vs Commies! But really targeting Taiwan, also producing subaudible heterodynes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** JAPAN …

** COLOMBIA. 5910, Marfil Estéreo ID as soon as I intuned, Aug 15 at 0545, then music. Frequent IDs certainly help. Modulation a bit distorted and carrier instability confirmed by switching on BFO. Believe this had been missing for a while, tho I have not tried to track it nightly. There were plans to somehow upgrade coverage of this frequency …
