On Nov 9 replaced my primary antenna to the FRG-7, mostly E-W longwire, which had several splices, by a single piece of heavier gauge wire over same route, from tree to tree to tree and not more than 10 feet above ground, not quite as long, but axuallly measured as 160 feet = 49 meters. Notice a definite improvement in …

** ALBANIA. 6100, Nov 10 at 0227 tune-in, R. Tirana with pop music, and “end of our program for today; goodnight from Radio Tirana“ then switch to IS, 0230 opening English with usual B-12 schedule claiming this is on the air 7 nights a week instead of 6. So the only scheduled English at 0230 got a prepeat, but from …

** ASIA [non]. 11605, Nov 9 at 0027, “you have been listening to Radio Free Asia“ a bit of music, carrier cut but right back on. No I haven`t, I just tuned in! Strangely enough, no IBB transmissions are in latest HFCC B-12 on 11605. That`s because as in Aoki, it`s via detested Taiwan:11605 2330-0030 TWN R.FREE ASIA Vietnamese Tanshui …

** BIAFRA [non]. 11830, Nov 8 at 1917, JBA carrier here and not on 11870, maybe evidence that R. Biafra London matches HFCC B-12 on this new frequency and an hour earlier, Thursdays and Saturdays only at 19-20 via WRN, due south from Wertachtal, GERMANY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. 7220 & 7435, CRI Nepali service via …

** ALBANIA. 6100, Nov 7 at 0229, R. Tirana IS, about to open English to NAm, but quite poor signal tonight. Still clear of QRM, altho Anguilla inbooming 6090 might be a problem on non-selective receivers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA. 9625, Nov 7 at 1420, straining to reconfirm that CBCNQ still exists, must be source of …

** CUBA. 15340, Nov 6 at 2245, RHC Spanish has finally moved here from 17750, allegedly to Europe but very strong, enough to be aimed USward, and of course overshadowing 15345 Argentina, which I expected would get creamed by Cuba. At least RHC should be off 15340 by 0000 UT when on weekends R. Nacional stays on 15345 later (Glenn …

** CHINA. 7390, Nov 6 at 1327, Firedrake mixed with presumed CNR1 jamming, weaker than 7385 with CNR1 only. The target on 7390 must be IBB Cantonese via Philippines at 13-15; we thought the ChiCom were not bothering to jam incoming Cantonese. Hit or miss? 11970, Nov 6 at 1338, Firedrake also here, very poor, presumably against 100-watt Sound of …

** AUSTRALIA. 19000, Nov 6 at 0128, RA VG with tail of an interview with an Indian academic asserting that altho no longer government-owned, All India Radio is not trusted by the people, who consider it still a government mouthpiece, run by ex-bureaucrats; while they do trust the Parliament Channel, which is funded directly from parliament. Hmm, isn`t that government …

** 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 …
