** CYPRUS. CyBC, 9760, surely the source of unannounced Greek folk music, Sunday May 3 from 2240 to abrupt cutoff without a word of goodbye at 2244:30. How rude! Reception was good. This is the Fri-Sat-Sun-only 2215-2244:30 transmission via BBC relay station; per EiBi, // are 7210 and 5930, not checked, but surely best here on 9760 anyway. If there …

** CHINA. Firedrake May 3: at 1353 on 13970, but not heard on any higher frequencies. At 1415 also on 9000 somewhat stronger than 8400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. 6110, with lite DCJC pulsing against nothing at 0636 May 3. Must be totally uncalled-for leftover jamming from the one hour VOA Spanish uses 6110 at 2300, …

** BULGARIA. Just tuned in 9800 at 2229 May 2 to hear the Minute Waltz played on a wind instrument, weak signal off at 2230* without announcement. Since it`s an -00 frequency, the prime suspect is R. Bulgaria, and indeed nothing but it is scheduled there, at 2130-2230 in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ISRAEL. 15785, weak …

Despite reports in April that the Brazilian service of CVC, A Sua Voz, would cease SW at the end of the month, it was still there on 15410 May 1, at 1336 check, Portuguese mixing with Hausa from DW via Rwanda, 5 Hz away.

** CUBA. RHC, 11820 in Spanish, at 2222 check April 30, much stronger than // 11800, altho 11820 is for Europe.

** 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: …

** 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: …

** CHINA. Firedrake, April 21 at 1325: on 8400 and weaker 9000.
