** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Jan 30 at 2307, REE in English with Justin Coe introducing C&W music by Chisholm group (like from around here?), and song by Merle Haggard. OK, but WHAT has this got to do with Spain? With only one sesquihour of English per week, REE ought to cram it with 100% all-Spain content! Even if it`s a …

** BRAZIL. 9630.5, Jan 29 at 0154, R. Aparecida is back on signature split frequency. Still at 0655 with song, S4-S6. Seems to have shifted ever so slightly below 9630.500, but not measured.

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 27 at 2120 on caradio, RHC French is distorted; much weaker French on 15370 seems non-distorted.

** CUBA. 15197.2, Jan 27 at 1542, cursory check for spurs from RHC 15140 finds this one with enough squishy music sound to match, i.e. 2 x 28.6 kHz above, and signs of others above and below at those multiples. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** EAST TURKISTAN. See TURKEY [and non] ** NORTH …

** BRAZIL. 11780.010, Jan 25 at 1332, Brazilian talk and music but only S5-S8 as RNA is normally weak in our mornings. Recheck at 1425, no signal; at 1517 a JBA carrier which by now could be TWR SWAZILAND in Somali.

** CHINA. Mauno Ritola, Finland, replies Jan 24 to my 5970 log: “CNR1 heard with echo over Gannan PBS, at least two carriers. Probably started at 1200. Sounds like there is also noise jammer via Delhi receiver. This sounds like a normal jamming procedure, but for what? Is it possible that they think Gannan Tibetan is from RFA or is …

** CHINA. 5970, Jan 23 at 1342 in absence of WEWN Spanish, two Chinese mixing; echo jammer? At this hour EiBi and Aoki have only PBS Gannan: EiBi says 1020-1410 in Tibetan via he site; Aoki says 1020-1230 Tibetan, 1230-1410 Chinese; but also 1300-1400 CNR11 in Tibetan, all from Hezuo site. That would certainly account for the self-defeating double audio. …

** AUSTRIA. 6155, Jan 22 at 0641, classical piano music from Ö1, as they always play for a few minutes to gently wake up the Austrians, also here during their only SW service left. Reception usually too poor to enjoy, but almost succeeds today. We must treasure every precious moment of classical on SW, since there is so little of …
