** 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, …

** ALBANIA. 13625, April 16 at 0527 just after monitoring R. Dabanga on 13620 — see SUDAN [non], I notice that a station has appeared on 13625 which was vacant a few minutes earlier: playing jazz music, variations on “Hit the Road, Jack“. What in the world? YL then mentions Willie Nelson, Wynton Marsalis. Shortly, several IDs for Radio Tirana, …

** ANGUILLA. 6090, April 15 at 1008 UT, DGS is still pontificating past nominal 1000 switch to day frequency 11775, and even at 1019, but gone at next check 1031; by 1046, 11775 was on air with successor PMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ANTARCTICA. 15476, after LRA36`s official reactivation yesterday, I am listening again April 15 from …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 finally back in business, following sporadic logs of it past two days, and Roberto Scaglione`s news that they hoped to have all the problems solved by April 14 for 1230-1500 transmissions (presumably M-F only) — 1228 tune-in April 14 to open carrier, fading up from S6 to peaks of S9+10. 1229 YL says “Transmite LRA36 . …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 13 at 1257, 1325 and 1357, not even a carrier detectable from LRA36 — However, Bruce Winkelman in Tulsa was hearing it a bit earlier, at 1206-1215, and Lúcio Otávio Bobrowiec in Embu, SP, Brasil, the day before at 2035-2102 — so still testing, or what will their complete new schedule be? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 12, guess what? Still no LRA36 carrier at 1255, 1407 chex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake April 12: nothing on 8400 at 1252, and with very poor EAs propagation today, only cursory check upband found no others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA [and non]. 17560, RHC continues to collide …

April 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** AUSTRALIA. THE DUMBING-DOWN OF RADIO AUSTRALIA: one of the few bright spots on the SW dial in our mornings (in English with a …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 13640, R. Tirana English to NAm and Europe, April 9 at 1845-1857:40*, typically ending at least two minutes before the hour/half hour, still has co-channel QRM from All India Radio, also causing a rippling SAH. Altho R. Tirana is slightly stronger here, an unacceptable collision. If AIR continues to be unresponsive about this usurpation, R. Tirana …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 13640, checking again April 8 the unexpected AIR interference to R. Tirana, English to North America at 2000-2030: At 1920, 13640 has poor signal mix of the two Arabic stations. 1958, India in French is very poor but reads S9+10 peaks. *1959, RT comes on with carrier at S9+15, but less modulation more than makes up …
