** ASIA [non]. 11605, Nov 9 at 0027, “you have been listening to Radio Free Asia“ a bit of music, carrier cut but right back on. No I haven`t, I just tuned in! Strangely enough, no IBB transmissions are in latest HFCC B-12 on 11605. That`s because as in Aoki, it`s via detested Taiwan:11605 2330-0030 TWN R.FREE ASIA Vietnamese Tanshui …

** BIAFRA [non]. 11830, Nov 8 at 1917, JBA carrier here and not on 11870, maybe evidence that R. Biafra London matches HFCC B-12 on this new frequency and an hour earlier, Thursdays and Saturdays only at 19-20 via WRN, due south from Wertachtal, GERMANY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. 7220 & 7435, CRI Nepali service via …

** ALBANIA. 6100, Nov 7 at 0229, R. Tirana IS, about to open English to NAm, but quite poor signal tonight. Still clear of QRM, altho Anguilla inbooming 6090 might be a problem on non-selective receivers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA. 9625, Nov 7 at 1420, straining to reconfirm that CBCNQ still exists, must be source of …

** CUBA. 15340, Nov 6 at 2245, RHC Spanish has finally moved here from 17750, allegedly to Europe but very strong, enough to be aimed USward, and of course overshadowing 15345 Argentina, which I expected would get creamed by Cuba. At least RHC should be off 15340 by 0000 UT when on weekends R. Nacional stays on 15345 later (Glenn …

** CHINA. 7390, Nov 6 at 1327, Firedrake mixed with presumed CNR1 jamming, weaker than 7385 with CNR1 only. The target on 7390 must be IBB Cantonese via Philippines at 13-15; we thought the ChiCom were not bothering to jam incoming Cantonese. Hit or miss? 11970, Nov 6 at 1338, Firedrake also here, very poor, presumably against 100-watt Sound of …

** AUSTRALIA. 19000, Nov 6 at 0128, RA VG with tail of an interview with an Indian academic asserting that altho no longer government-owned, All India Radio is not trusted by the people, who consider it still a government mouthpiece, run by ex-bureaucrats; while they do trust the Parliament Channel, which is funded directly from parliament. Hmm, isn`t that government …

** ARGENTINA. 13363.5-LSB, Sunday Nov 4, excited talk in Spanish, so the LTA army feeder (to Antarctica?) is on again, as probability is highest on weekends. Not play-by-play game, however. 2317 a long adstring mentioning such things as Cataratas de Iguazú, Buenos Aires and Monte Grande addresses, and most of them cite 0-800 phone numbers which I assume are the …

** CUBA. 5025, Nov 4 at 0528, R. Rebelde has no RTTY QRM at the moment, but now its own modulation is distorted and suppressed, lacking the usual vigour. Substituting one of RHC`s defective transmitters? Next check at 1223, more or less back to normal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. Guess what: despite dis- or mis-information from …

** ALBANIA. 6100, Nov 4 at 0230, R. Tirana is barely audible, less so than the signal meter implies, because it`s undermodulated and weaker than usual vs the noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** GUIANA FRENCH. The dirty spurblobs of the last few nights are on again after 0200 UT Nov 4 circa 5994 and 6076, but …

** ALBANIA. 7465, Nov 2 at 2057, weak signal with talk rather than R. Tirana IS; must be tail of 2030 German service now scheduled just before English. 2100 opening English with correct times for both English broadcasts. 6100, Nov 2 at 0227 R. Tirana carrier is on, not earlier; 0228 IS, 0230 sign-on English with schedule of: to UK …

** ALBANIA. 6100, Nov 2 tuning in early in case R. Tirana is really starting at 0200 as per the new schedule announcements. No, nothing there at 0212, nor at 0225, but at 0227 a very poor carrier is going on and off, and continues to be JBA at 0230. Assuming this is really it, not a good night for …

Glenn Hauser logs October 31-November 1, 2012

** ALBANIA. 7465, Oct 31 at 2100 trying to hear R. Tirana`s sign-on announcement in English but still too weak here against the noise level. Should improve on the average as we approach Solstice, and also should be better further east. 6100, Nov 1 at 0224 tune-in, R. Tirana is already on the air with music, 0227 IS and 0230 …
