** 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 …

** 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 …

** ALBANIA. 6100, Oct 31 at 0227, night two of the new time and frequency in English to NAm: R. Tirana IS, 0230 Klara`s sign-on announcement has been changed from the defunct A-12 one aired 24 hours earlier, but it`s wrong! She says the English schedule is to UK at 21-22 on 7465 Mon-Sat, and to USA, 02-03 on 6100 …

** CANADA. 6110, Oct 30 at 0508, Sackville keeps this frequency on but without NHK any more, which lasted thru Oct 29. Now playing novelty song in French, obviously local fill, as they had been earlier on 5960. See also JAPAN [non] 9555, Oct 30 at 0509 check, Sackville has finally turned off this ex-VOV frequency, like 6175 earlier. See …

** ALBANIA. 6100, Oct 30 at 0227, R. Tirana IS on new frequency for B-12, only fair signal but no jamming or other QRM. 0230 opening announcement still gives A-12 times and frequencies: seasonal changes always seem to take the studio by surprise. Program preview includes news, cultural activities of the week, sports. SINPO 35433 altho local noise level holds …

** BANGLADESH. 15105, Oct 29 at 1259, S Asian music, hum, Bangladesh Betar sign-off in English; poor. 15505, Oct 29 at 1359, very poor with hum, 1400 music to open Urdu, but so poor I cannot detect an inaccurate timesignal today, shux (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA [and non]. 6120, Oct 29 at 1227, NHK English relay …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 7465, Oct 29 at 0025, new frequency and time for R. Tirana, Albanian to NAm, 0000-0100, ex 2300-2400 on 7425. Fair signal and in the clear, as it would not have been if stayed on 7425, where CRI English from Kashgar is co-channel and indeed audible here on the opposite worldside; in B-11 they kept colliding. …

** ALBANIA. 7425, Oct 28 at 0233 open carrier, dead air, no doubt R. Tirana, one of many stations unable to coordinate a smooth transition from A- to B-season scheduling. English to NAm for B-12 is at 0230 on 6100, but not there. Instead they kept 7425 from A-12 on the air but moved it one hour later, and there …
