** CANADA. 15235, June 6 at 1900, RCI in Arabic, very poor, while 17735 is much better in French. 17735 is the only scheduled Sackville frequency for French; I was misled by the HFCC schedule athttp://www.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A12&broadc=RCIwhich shows language “FrA“ at 1900-2000 on 15235, while RCI`s own schedule reminds us it`s really on the air only for the first half hour …

** CANADA [and non]. Since the NHK relay at 0500 on 6110 has been missing since May 31, still absent June 6, I check whether any of the RCI frequencies are missing too from Sackville, June 5: At 1957, 17735 is on in French making SAH with Tunisia in Arabic; but nothing on the only listed // 15235; however it …

** CANADA [and non]. 6110, June 5 at 0500, strains of “Sakura“ raise faint hope that NHK World Radio Japan English relay is back in business — but it`s only faint overload from the NHK Spanish service starting on 6080 via BONAIRE, removed from 6110 by attenuation. Need to check whether any scheduled Sackville frequencies are missing from other transmissions, …

** BRAZIL. 15191.5, June 4 at 0536, Brazilian music is fading in and completely out, on giveaway offset frequency of R. Inconfidência, as I was looking for R. Africa, Equatorial Guinea, which is sometimes on the 15190 air this early, but no sign of it despite good African reception elsewhere on 19m. Bothered by splash from N. Korea in Spanish …

** AUSTRALIA. 21740, May 2 at 0028, RA English very good here on reactivated frequency we used to listen to years ago. Great to have this OSOB back for good evening listening in off-target NAm. This is even stronger than NF 19000 (AM but destined to be DRM), which in turn is much stronger than old 17795. Tnx to Rick …

** AUSTRALIA. Further monitoring of R. Australia, lacking any new schedule following significant changes a week ago, no response to our direct request for one, nor on their own website, and of course, nothing at all registered with HFCC: 15160, May 1 at 0443, English is on here // 15515, about equal signals, and slightly weaker on 15240 in Indonesian, …

** CANADA. 17735, 15330, 15235, Sunday April 15 at 2003, `Maple Leaf Mailbag` again dedicated to reading letters of support for RCI. This week Terry Haig is joined by Marc Montgomery, and during the first half, Paloma Martínez of the Spanish department, for whom English is her third language.

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 15190, April 11 at 1853, R. Africa, with YL gospel huxter, and CCI making a SAH — likely Philippines which is also on 15190 at 1730-1930, but not usually audible here. Still the same at 1901. By next check 1953, guess who? Tony Alámo! The arrested, tried, convicted and imprisoned for 175 years child molester. It`s been …

** COSTA RICA. While waiting for RHC to put some modulation on 17750 carrier, April 1 at 1947, see CUBA, I amused myself by tracing spurs from the bigsig on 17850 from REE relay during stupid ballgame, distorted matching modulation. Found a lot of them at multiples of approx. 13.7 to 13.8 kHz up and down, so give or take …
