** CUBA. RHC, 11820 in Spanish, at 2222 check April 30, much stronger than // 11800, altho 11820 is for Europe. Little did I know that this was the farewell broadcast of RHC on 11820, as José Miguel Romero reports that per Arnie Coro, RHC moves May 1 to 11770 for this European transmission in Portuguese, Arabic and Spanish at …

** CHINA [and non]. Not only does the new Firedrake frequency 15600 block the newly discovered RHC mixing product in our mornings, Commies vs Commies, but at 2145 UT I was again hearing Firedrake on 15600, now underneath some religionist in Spanish, which would be WFYR 44 degrees to Europe at 1900-2245 including this hour in Spanish. Per Aoki, other …

** CHINA [and non]. 15635, at 0616 April 29, two programs in Chinese mixing. Per Aoki, this is a R. Free Asia Chinese frequency at 0300-0700, 500 kW, 152 degrees via Irkutsk, RUSSIA, plus ChiCom jamming. I cannot be sure whether I was hearing RFA at all or just double jamming. See also USA [non] 11605. Firedrake check April 29: …

** ALASKA. KNLS, 7355, April 28 at 1413 in English with Stories from the Bible in Contemporary English, ID; good signal.

** BIAFRA [non]. Only had time for a quick check on the portable of 17520, Friday April 24 at 1952, and could barely detect a signal there, presumably still V. of Biafra International for the third week in a row. Not on 15665 or 11885, anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake check April 25 at 1315: …

Per Aoki, this must be CVC Darwin, 250 kW, 340 degrees, 0400-1000 in Chinese. Also had RA weakly in English on 17750, 0601 April 24 with news from USA, // better 15240. 17750 is …

** CHINA. Firedrake, April 21 at 1325: on 8400 and weaker 9000. Firedrake, which is the name for the raucous music-only jamming, not any other audio source of Chinese jamming, is still being heard regularly here in the mornings: April 22 at 1307 on 8400, much stronger than on 9000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. The latest …

** BIAFRA [non]. As expected, this week V. of Biafra International via WHRI was on 17520, Friday April 10 at 1900 — as I was barely able to confirm by recognizing the oratorical style at 1945 on the DX-398 portable as I was out and about and paused to check it in a store parking lot. Under those circumstances, it …

** CANADA. 9515, RCI with the harmonica music filler we used to hear for a minute or two, but April 2 at 1744, this went on uninterrupted until cut back into French programming in progress at 1817. We enjoyed that CD when they would play different trax, but this was one single track in a loop over and over; I …

** ALBANIA. R. Tirana, English at 2005 UT April 1 on 13640. Good signal, some deep fades, peaking S9+18, discussing joining NATO. Fairly good modulation level for no strain listening even with computer noise. Not audible on // 7465 for Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** AUSTRALIA [and non]. I continue to be amazed by the VL8 stations …
