** BOLIVIA. 6134.8, June 8 at 0148 weak music audible here with heavy QRM from the TADIL-A bonker on the lo side, constant intruder into the exclusive 49m SWBC band, and lots of storm noise on the band. Is well-known off-frequency of R. Santa Cruz, and I have no doubt this is it. BFO did not help much; music ran …

** CANADA. 15235, June 6 at 1900, RCI in Arabic, very poor, while 17735 is much better in French. 17735 is the only scheduled Sackville frequency for French; I was misled by the HFCC schedule athttp://www.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A12&broadc=RCIwhich shows language “FrA“ at 1900-2000 on 15235, while RCI`s own schedule reminds us it`s really on the air only for the first half hour …

** CANADA [and non]. 6110, June 5 at 0500, strains of “Sakura“ raise faint hope that NHK World Radio Japan English relay is back in business — but it`s only faint overload from the NHK Spanish service starting on 6080 via BONAIRE, removed from 6110 by attenuation.

** BRAZIL. 15191.5, June 4 at 0536, Brazilian music is fading in and completely out, on giveaway offset frequency of R. Inconfidência, as I was looking for R. Africa, Equatorial Guinea, which is sometimes on the 15190 air this early, but no sign of it despite good African reception elsewhere on 19m. Bothered by splash from N. Korea in Spanish …

** AUSTRALIA. 21740, May 2 at 0028, RA English very good here on reactivated frequency we used to listen to years ago. Great to have this OSOB back for good evening listening in off-target NAm. This is even stronger than NF 19000 (AM but destined to be DRM), which in turn is much stronger than old 17795. Tnx to Rick …
