** CANADA. Radio Canada Immigration, 9515, Monday Sept 28 at 1444 once again in wrong language contrary to its own schedule for Russian until 1505: really Brazilian Portuguese, with French lesson for crianças, lecture about Québec folkloric traditions with occasional French words interjected by child`s voice, closing referring to http://www.rcinet.ca for more info. Recheck at 1452, more of same in …

** CANADA [non]. 13810, Sat Sept 26 at 1828 giving Toronto address in English to 1829*. Per HFCC this is DTK via the doomed Jülich site; per Aoki it is Bible Voice in Somali until 1830 on weekends only via Wertachtal. Surely GERMANY, anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 26 at 1305: poor on 8400, …

** ANTARCTICA. While LRA36 was at S9 level Sept 24 after 1800, not even a carrier detectable the next day, Sept 25 at 1802, 1830 and 2030 chex. Not much from LRA 15345 either. Nevertheless, solar flux for Sept 24 was still 75, and K index at 1800 Sept 25 was still 0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** …

** BRAZIL. 4885, romantic music and Brazilian announcements between songs, presumed R. Clube do Pará, the usual 24-hour dominant here, but a long time since it overcame noise level enough and CODAR, Sept 25 at 0523-0529+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 25: at 1340, equally poor but audible on 8400, 9000; nothing on 10210 or …

** ANTARCTICA. Maybe my best reception yet of LRA36, 15476, Sept 24 at 1835, with tango song, S9 peaks; 1839 clear timecheck for 3:39 as I rolled a semihour of tape and will report the results when I get around to listening to it. I did check the end of it at 1910 and the signal had weakened quite a …

** ANTARCTICA. LRA36, 15476 + a smidgin, again putting in respectable signal from so far and so lowpowered, Sept 23 at 1925 woman talking in Spanish, 1930 to man singing about corazón with guitar, 1936 ID. Continued alternating talk and music segments, and at 2005 noticed the noise level increase, presumably start of QRDRM from Greenville. However, Jeff White says …

** ALBANIA. Tuned in R. Tirana 13640 in English, just in time to hear them saying goodbye and brief theme music at 2026-2027* Sept 21, but not before I read the S-meter at 9+20, no QRM or QRN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BHUTAN [non]. Re 6035 at 1318-1330 Sept 22 which I tentatively logged as Bhutan, Ron …

** BRAZIL. 11735 with Brazilian Portuguese dominating over North Korea for a change, but making lo het with it, Sept 21 at 1401 full Rádio Transmundial ID, giving ZY- callsigns (ze-úpsilon-) for several frequencies including this and one on 50 m, but fading prevented detailed copy, peaking S9+12. 1403 opening program “Bom Dia, RTM“ tho it`s already 11 am there. …

Glenn Hauser logs: Egypt correxion (2)

Somehow I wrote 7260 once when I meant 7540 in this graf of my report about EGYPT: Now corrected: The 0200-0330 broadcast may be a `west coast service` in the sense that it is at a more convenient prime time in PDT, 7-8:30 pm and is he second of two English sesquihours to NAm, after 2300-2430 on 11590, but the …

** ANGUILLA. Caribbean Beacon silent again on 6090, Sept 20 at 0558, but maybe not for a week this time, as DGS was back on 11775 at 1300 check, never with any local ID at hourtop or anywhen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ARGENTINA. As an example of how feeble the “100 kW“ transmitter at General Pacheco is, …

** CANADA. Yet another Sackville leapfrog to add to the stable: 6045, Sept 19 at 0522 in Vietnamese, the 6175 VOV relay transmitter saulting over the 6110 transmitter carrying NHK at 0500-0530 only, another 65 kHz downward. The fundamentals were very strong, audiblizing the parasite. There should be another one on 6240 in the other direxion, this one with NHK …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 audible for second day at about same insufficient level, but incomparably better than nothing. If only my line noise level would abate! Sept 18 at 1902 with bits of music; still audible with more music at recheck 2035 when no QRDRM was to be heard, so has Greenville finally ended its test run without respect for …
