Some items omitted inadvertently from my previous report: ** CANADA [and non]. CFRX still suffers co-channel interference on 6070, from which it is inconceivable that it would ever move; equally inconceivable that RCI at HFCC would lift a finger to protect 6070. Wouldn`t do any good anyway in this case, as the culprit is an outlaw nation, which refuses to …

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Caribbean Beacon audio from 1610 still mixing with The University Network, June 4: at 1330 PMS had music underneath her, then undermodulated live announcement by OM announcer for a change, apologizing for audio difficulties (but I assume not this particular problem), program summary for the rest of the morning, back to gospel music QRMing the Bossette (Glenn …

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Caribbean Beacon local programming from 1610 kHz still mixing with The University Network, June 3 at 1203: PMS on the latter, an OM preacher on the former prompting responsive readings. At 1349 a hyper preacher was QRMing PMS. At least she is not a screamer, I`ll say that for her. At 1402, local YL announcer was sending …

** ALGERIA [non]. 7295 // 9535, June 2 at 0537, RTA with Qur`an; later in the hour sounded reverent but not Qur`an pe se. 7295 is 194 degrees from Issoudun, FRANCE, and 9535 is 162 degrees during this hour. 9535 was slightly better, tho with some flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ANGUILLA [and non]. How is the …

** ALBANIA. R. Tirana still doing well on 7425; checking English to North America UT Sunday May 31: at 0143 already on the air with music, then RT theme, 0144-0146 IS, 0146 theme again and opening English with full schedule. WBCQ 7415 was strong enough to cause a bit of splatter but no other QRM, and RT somewhat undermodulated as …

** ANGUILLA. Caribbean Beacon, 11775, still mixing local 1610 program audio with PMS, May 30 at 1308, at the moment gospel music from the former, and now much lower audio level than PMS, but still obviously there. An hour later a male preacher could be heard underneath her. The ChiCom co-channel jamming until 1330 was even weaker this date, but …

** ANGUILLA. It was `fixed` on May 28, but it`s unfixed again on May 29 at 1347 check: 11775 with two programs at once, PMS, and another YL preacher from the Caribbean Beacon local service, at a slightly lower audio level. As previously explained, this can happen between 1000 and 1600 when 1610 kHz carries separate programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, …

** ANGUILLA. 11775 fixed mix with local MW 1610 programming as heard the past two days: May 28 at 1311, Pastor Melissa Scott all by herself; even the ChiCom jamming was barely audible. A pity: 99% of SWLs would rather hear the Carib huxters along with live local Caribbean Beacon continuity announcements between 1000 and 1600. PMS and DGS should …

** ANGUILA [and non]. Re Caribbean Beacon local ID on SW 11775: George McClintock tells me the cause was RF from the MW 1610 transmitter getting into the SW audio processor. This has happened before. The reason it stopped at 1600 UT (1601 as Brandon Jordan observed May 26) is that the SW and MW become parallel at that time …

** ANGUILLA. I have accomplished the impossible: I have heard a local ID on the Caribbean Beacon! Normally it`s 24/7 DGS/PMS with no local breaks built in or ever exercised. Here`s how I did it: May 26 at 1329 tuned in 11775 to hear a hefty mix of three audio sources. On the bottom, something in Chinese, which disappeared at …

** CHINA. Firedrake survey May 24: barely caught a few bars of it on unusual 9390 until 1300*, but back on at 1308, poor; fortunately, no WWRB 9385 on yet. Against what? Per Aoki, at 12-13 on 9390 is R. Pakistan`s Chinese broadcast, so chalk up another neighbor to whom the ChiCom demonstrate their hostility. Aoki does not yet show …

** CHINA. Hunting for Firedrakes the morning of May 23: conditions depressed, and did not find any between 8 and 19 MHz except: 14420 at 1316, good signal, // weaker 15600. Note: some of these Firedrakes are likely coming from EAST TURKISTAN sites Kashi or Urumqi, but since SAFRT refuses to register their jammers with HFCC, we can`t be sure. …
