** 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 …

** BIAFRA [non]. Quick check reconfirms V. of Biafra International still on 15665 via WHRI, Friday August 14 at 1927, in English mentioning Ibos.

Brasil Central always fun to hear when the MUF attains 12 MHz in the …

** CANADA. Still zero signal from CFRX 6070 at 1320 check August 11. Harold Sellers passes on word from Steve Canney that the transmitter has been damaged again and is back in New York for repairs, so no telling how long it will be off. When it does come back, don`t expect to hear Peter Anthony Holder any more after …

** CUBA. Surprised to hear RHC Spanish programming on 13740, Aug 9 at 1354, as it`s supposed to be a CRI-relay frequency only from 1400 in English, but usually on 10-15 minutes early with open carrier. That made it // RHC intentional frequencies 13680, 13760 and 13780, which with the mixing products on 13580 and 13880 make six // on …

** CHINA. Firedrake August 2: at 1310 audible on 9000, not 8400. At 1330, fair on 11300, none higher. August 3: not checked. August 4: at 1255, poor on 9000, not 8400; at 1258 good but with flutter on 11300; same at 1358. It`s not clear whether the lack of reception on 8400 and higher channels is due to poor …
