** ANGUILLA [and non]. 11775 missing at 1346 check May 11, and also at 1331 check May 12, tho some DentroCuban jamming pulses were audible against nothing since R. Martí uses 11775 only at 0000-0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BRAZIL. Radio Brasil Central, 11815 fair with deep fades, “Acontece na Madrugada“ mentioned as soon as I tuned …

** BIAFRA [non]. V. of Biafra International, via WHRI 17520, May 8 at 1941, another Friday on the same frequency. The Orator was talking about the differences between Islamic and Christian regions of Nigeria — emirs had divine rights, but during the period of military rule, a land use decree left eastern people landless, unlike the Yoruba and Hausa. Sufficient …

** 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 …
