** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 27 at 1252 weak talk, building to S6 peaking at S9+10 by 1259, and stronger than UK 15480. Musical segués continue until 1306 announcement, just as the Greenville carrier comes on for pre-test; it goes back off at 1309 after brief tone test, and does not come back on until 1421:40 prior to scheduled R. Sawa …

** ALBANIA. 13735, April 25 at 1855, R. Tirana`s English to NAm from 1845 today has sufficient modulation, unlike yesterday, now easy to follow something about the European Parliament. Still totally in the clear from QRM, no other signals between 13720 and 13750. 13625, April 26 at 1442, R. Tirana English is poor with some music audible; both signal and …

** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15476, April 25 first checked at 1310, only to find strong open carrier and tone test on 15480 but thankfully off at 1311. That`s 250 kW from Greenville warming up for the new R. Sawa transmission at 1430-1600, which we hope will be abandoned as quickly in a few days as the previous one on 15470. …

** CANADA [non]. 17495, Sunday April 24 at 1449 gospel music, 1451 YL with North American accent about Jesus; closing with long PO Box number starting with 5- was cut off abruptly at 1459. Had not been hearing anything on this frequency, certainly not WBCQ as registered, which is only a wooden one, alternate to 15420. But HFCC explains the …

** 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 …

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, …
