** CHINA. Firedrake check July 7: at 1255 fair on 8400, JBA on 9000. At 1313, good on 13970; at 1316 weaker not on 14420 but on 14430 as SOH had pulled a fast one. Neither heard at next check 1354. At 1328, FD on 17500 // 13970, but not on 18320 or vicinity. At 1343 audible on 9000 but …

** CHINA. I have kept trolling for Firedrake each morning, but none heard on the usual frequencies 8-19 MHz either July 5 or 6 around 1330. E Asian propagation has been rather poor, and expect they are still running (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA [non]. CRI relay via CUBA, 9570, missing July 6 at 1253 check, so …

** CUBA. Nightly check of RHC to see if they are still running more Spanish, less English tnx to the Honduran golpe. Yes, July 5 at 0545: 11760, 6140, 6120 and 6000 in Spanish; 6060 and 6010 in English with DXers Unlimited, but 6060 quite distorted, Arnie cutting out and in. At 0548 Spanish announcer plugged today`s Mesa Redonda Informativa …

** CHINA. Firedrake check July 4: at 1412, trace on 13970, poor on 14420, trace maybe on 17500, no others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. RHC still operating contrary to previous scheduling and currently published scheduling, UT July 4, presumably all prompted by obsession with the Honduran situation: At 0610, Spanish on 6140, 6120 and 6000; English …

** CHINA. Firedrake check July 3: at 1329 audible poorly on 9000, worse on 8400. At 1337 just barely audible on 13970 and at 1338 nothing on 14420. At 1340 better on 15150 // 9000. At 1343 best but fluttery on 17500 and 18320 // 9000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. RHC`s schedule is also upshaken in …

** AUSTRALIA. RA // 9580 and 9590, July 2 at 1318 in “Asia-Pacific“ item about China retaliating against US over dumping. The strange thing today is that as I was tuning halfway between them on 9585, could hear a slight reverb, then confirmed on two separate receivers. These two transmitters in the same hall at Shepparton should be synchronized, so …

** CANADA. Quick check of RCI on 9515, July 1 at 1422 found it in correct language, Russian for a change (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA [non]. Checking an erroneous report of weather info on LSB 15034, I reconfirmed that CHR Trenton is on USB: July 1 at 1333 giving weather not for Canada, but Europe, including …

  ** ASCENSION. After trolling 7100-7200 for violators, first signal I encountered was 7205, June 30 at 0556, tonal language, probably Hausa. What does PWBR `2009` say? Nothing listed. Off at 0559:30* but back on a few sex later, slightly weaker in French. Uplooked later online, it`s BBCWS, 250 kW as scheduled Hausa into French, also switching 65 to 70 …

** ALASKA. 9780 at 1256 June 29, KNLS concluding English hour with full schedule in that language, here mixing with Chinese, which is no surprise if you believe Aoki rather than HFCC, since the former includes Taiwan at 10-14 in Chinese, and consequently DentroChinese jamming. This frequency must be a total loss for KNLS in its E Asian target area, …

** CHINA. Firedrake check June 27: at 1319 just barely audible on 8400, 9000; at 1320 JBA on 14420; at 1321 poor on 13970, but significantly better than the others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. Hardly a day goes by without some self-inflicted discrepancy at RHC, and there were several June 27: at 1250 during PreLa`s week …

** CHINA. Firedrake check June 26: before 1300 barely audible on 9000; at 1305, very poor on 14420, nothing on 13500, 13970 or any others of the usuals (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** GABON [and non]. I often hear a weak station in French on 9580, which has to be the last SW frequency left from this country, …

** CANADA. 11850, YL in non-Mandarin Chinese dialect, June 25 at 1213, VG signal but with squeal – alternating 2 or 3 pitches, which almost seemed like exotic instrument musical accompaniment; it could be heard more clearly by tuning to the LSB, as the USB was bothered by BBC/GUF from 11860. It`s CRI in Cantonese as scheduled via Sackville during …
