** ALBANIA. 13625, R. Tirana, English to NAm, S9+10 April 23 at 1445 — but just open carrier. Straining to hear anything, there is a trace of music, just barely modulated. Assuring a clear frequency hardly matters when the station can`t maintain modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake April 23:10970, poor at 134014700, very poor at …

** ALGERIA [non]. 9535, RTA via FRANCE, April 22 at 0615 in Arabic with quick heavy echo, much like we sometimes hear on 7295 in the previous hour. Long/short path propagationally unlikely at this hour involving the dayside, so once again we suspect TDF at Issoudun have failed to turn off one transmitter before turning on another with a slightly …

** ALBANIA. 13735, R. Tirana confirmed on new frequency, April 20 at 1845, now in the clear but weak signal and modulation today; could barely make out that old 13640 was still being announced in the complete English schedule which takes up the first two minutes of every transmission. All India Radio now have 13640 to themselves, bullies. Also same …

** ALBANIA. R. Tirana is expected to change from 13640, usurped by INDIA, to 13735 as of April 20 for the Mon-Sat English broadcasts at 1845-1858 and 2000-2028 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36, April 20 at 1335 has very poor but detectable signal, on meter ranging S9 to S9+8 peaks, averaging S9+5. Music slightly better …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 19 at 1253, LRA36 very poor with some music audible; peaking around 1305, YL talk in Spanish, seems undermodulated. Caught a few words such as “Segunda Guerra Mundial“, “Varsovia“, and referred to many different years before and after, evidently a “Today in History“ feature. Stations which can`t do justice to News instead feature Olds (Glenn Hauser, …

** ALBANIA. 13625, April 18 at 1443, R. Tirana English to North America in the clear, fluxuating S7 to S9+5, but just barely modulated; useless (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 18 at 1229-1233+ music, very poor but enough to confirm LRA36 is on the air today; by 1432 no carrier detectable, supposed to run until …

** CHINA. Firedrake April 17: 7970, fair at 1237. Again nothing on 8400, replaced by this?10300, good at 1250, much stronger than 10965/10970; poor at 131610965, poor at 1248 // 10970 about equal level; poor at 1316; poor at 1333, obscured by stronger // 10970, also // 1698010970, poor at 1248 // 10965 about equal level; gone at 1316; back on …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 13640, April 16 at 2023 check, heavy collision at equal levels still between R. Tirana, rightful occupant, English to North America, and usurper All India Radio, French to Europe. RT is aware of the problem now ongoing for a semimonth, and being urged to move, but the bureaucracy takes its time; meanwhile it`s unlistenable (Glenn Hauser, …

** ALBANIA. 13625, April 16 at 0527 just after monitoring R. Dabanga on 13620 — see SUDAN [non], I notice that a station has appeared on 13625 which was vacant a few minutes earlier: playing jazz music, variations on “Hit the Road, Jack“. What in the world? YL then mentions Willie Nelson, Wynton Marsalis. Shortly, several IDs for Radio Tirana, …

** ANGUILLA. 6090, April 15 at 1008 UT, DGS is still pontificating past nominal 1000 switch to day frequency 11775, and even at 1019, but gone at next check 1031; by 1046, 11775 was on air with successor PMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ANTARCTICA. 15476, after LRA36`s official reactivation yesterday, I am listening again April 15 from …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 finally back in business, following sporadic logs of it past two days, and Roberto Scaglione`s news that they hoped to have all the problems solved by April 14 for 1230-1500 transmissions (presumably M-F only) — 1228 tune-in April 14 to open carrier, fading up from S6 to peaks of S9+10. 1229 YL says “Transmite LRA36 . …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 13 at 1257, 1325 and 1357, not even a carrier detectable from LRA36 — However, Bruce Winkelman in Tulsa was hearing it a bit earlier, at 1206-1215, and Lúcio Otávio Bobrowiec in Embu, SP, Brasil, the day before at 2035-2102 — so still testing, or what will their complete new schedule be?
