** CANADA. 6175 at tune-in 0528 May 8, VTC fill-music loop, non-`cello, until 0529* RCI IS and ID once and off, following Vietnam relay which I think always runs short (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA [and non]. Yet another mixing product from RHC transmitters, this time on 11520 fading in and out, at 1348 May 7. This …

** INDONESIA. Looking for VOI on reactivated 11785, May 6 at 1300 in English, but could not unearth it below the barrage of at least two ChiCom echoing jammers starting with a 5+1 timesignal, and VOA Chinese. Tried for a few more minutes and again later in the hour but no trace of VOI, so either totally buried, not propagating …

** AUSTRALIA. 13660, May 5 at 1351 with heavily produced lively programming in Chinese, caught “bodiantai“ fragment of an ID; music had that gospel-rock sound, so suspect CVC. Announcer did say “CVC“ and immediately cut carrier at 1400*. Indeed looked up later in Aoki, it`s CVC via Darwin, 250 kW, 340 degrees, 1000-1400 in Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING …

** CYPRUS. CyBC, 9760, surely the source of unannounced Greek folk music, Sunday May 3 from 2240 to abrupt cutoff without a word of goodbye at 2244:30. How rude! Reception was good. This is the Fri-Sat-Sun-only 2215-2244:30 transmission via BBC relay station; per EiBi, // are 7210 and 5930, not checked, but surely best here on 9760 anyway. If there …

** CHINA. Firedrake May 3: at 1353 on 13970, but not heard on any higher frequencies. At 1415 also on 9000 somewhat stronger than 8400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. 6110, with lite DCJC pulsing against nothing at 0636 May 3. Must be totally uncalled-for leftover jamming from the one hour VOA Spanish uses 6110 at 2300, …

** BULGARIA. Just tuned in 9800 at 2229 May 2 to hear the Minute Waltz played on a wind instrument, weak signal off at 2230* without announcement. Since it`s an -00 frequency, the prime suspect is R. Bulgaria, and indeed nothing but it is scheduled there, at 2130-2230 in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ISRAEL. 15785, weak …

** BIAFRA [non]. V. of Biafra International, 17520 via WHRI, routine weekly check Friday May 1 sometime during the 19-20 UT hour reconfirmed it is still airing there, sufficient reception (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHILE. CVC still running on 15410 in Portuguese, May 2 at 1344 check with SAH, two days after projected closedown of Brazilian service …

** CHILE. Despite reports in April that the Brazilian service of CVC, A Sua Voz, would cease SW at the end of the month, it was still there on 15410 May 1, at 1336 check, Portuguese mixing with Hausa from DW via Rwanda, 5 Hz away. Other collisions are 15-17 Radio Farda via Lampertheim, 1730-1900 VOA English via Greenville, but …

** CUBA. RHC, 11820 in Spanish, at 2222 check April 30, much stronger than // 11800, altho 11820 is for Europe. Little did I know that this was the farewell broadcast of RHC on 11820, as José Miguel Romero reports that per Arnie Coro, RHC moves May 1 to 11770 for this European transmission in Portuguese, Arabic and Spanish at …

** CHINA [and non]. Not only does the new Firedrake frequency 15600 block the newly discovered RHC mixing product in our mornings, Commies vs Commies, but at 2145 UT I was again hearing Firedrake on 15600, now underneath some religionist in Spanish, which would be WFYR 44 degrees to Europe at 1900-2245 including this hour in Spanish. Per Aoki, other …

** CHINA [and non]. 15635, at 0616 April 29, two programs in Chinese mixing. Per Aoki, this is a R. Free Asia Chinese frequency at 0300-0700, 500 kW, 152 degrees via Irkutsk, RUSSIA, plus ChiCom jamming. I cannot be sure whether I was hearing RFA at all or just double jamming. See also USA [non] 11605. Firedrake check April 29: …

** ALASKA. KNLS, 7355, April 28 at 1413 in English with Stories from the Bible in Contemporary English, ID; good signal. Could not hear the other transmitter in Chinese on 9795 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake, very good, and equal level on 8400 and 9000, April 27 [not 24 as in DXLD 9-036] at 1321 check, …
