** CANADA [and non]. CHU, 7850, at 1413 Aug 24 time pips mixed with some hashy QRM, and also 2-way SSB slightly on the hi side, language not determined. The hashy QRM I would have assumed to be coming from my VCRs or TVs, but has been reported by others as a CHU transmitter defect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING …

** BIAFRA [non]. Sometime during the 19-20 UT Friday Aug 21 hour I tuned to 15665 for about four sesquiseconds to reconfirm VOBI still there via WHRI, and it was. BTW, James MacDonell in NW Nigeria tells me that as of Aug 23, R. Nigeria Enugu is gone again from 6025 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** U S …

** CANADA. CHU is rarely strong enough here to tell, but as Liz Cameron, MI, has been noting, there is some buzz mixing with the 7850 signal, Aug 22 at 1221. It`s more obvious with BFO on, and the transmitter seems slightly unstable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Searching every kHz between 8 and 19 MHz for …

** AUSTRALIA. RA is regular on 15240, 15160, but not often heard on 15415, as it was Aug 21 at 0517 with song, in English? Not // the others. 15415 is 329 degrees from Shep, alternating English and Indonesian and this was during a semi-hour in the latter service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** AUSTRALIA. 13635 and 13660 …

** CANADA. Big het between 6160.0/6160.9, Aug 20 at 0549 with CBC in English. As Carlos Gonçalves just reported from Portugal, CKZN is off-frequency, and here it clashes with CKZU, the two about equal level and inseparable [the only spelling accepted by MS Word]. Normally they are never zero-beat, but maybe 15 Hz apart producing a fast ripple SAH. Still …

** AUSTRIA. 15595, Aug 18 at 1506 hymn in English “I will trust in you“, into language talk. Umlauts reminded me of Hungarian, so I did not think it was Turkish, but so listed in Aoki as AWR at 1500-1530 only via Moosbrunn. Careful: at 1530 Vatican ecumenically takes over 15595 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA. 9625 …

T-storms kept developing right over Enid all evening, UT Aug 17, so computers and antennas unplugged, leaving us nothing else to do but monitor SW in primetime when we usually do not, with inside antennas only, pretty long wrapped around the ceiling several times, and presumably less direxional than the usual E-W longwire. T-storm noise was heavy, but less human-made …

** CHINA [and non]. No stand-alone Firedrake heard on usual frequencies Aug 16 around 1230. But at 1238 did hear it on 12040 mixing with CNR1 jamming and VOA target; and on 11710 // CNR1 jamming mixing with N Korean music, Commies vs Commies! But really targeting Taiwan, also producing subaudible heterodynes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** JAPAN …

** COLOMBIA. 5910, Marfil Estéreo ID as soon as I intuned, Aug 15 at 0545, then music. Frequent IDs certainly help. Modulation a bit distorted and carrier instability confirmed by switching on BFO. Believe this had been missing for a while, tho I have not tried to track it nightly. There were plans to somehow upgrade coverage of this frequency …

** BIAFRA [non]. Quick check reconfirms V. of Biafra International still on 15665 via WHRI, Friday August 14 at 1927, in English mentioning Ibos. WRTH predicts that 17520 will resume for this in September, Fridays at 1900-2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BRAZIL. R. Brasil Central always fun to hear when the MUF attains 12 MHz in the …

** CHINA. Firedrake August 12: at 1235 heard again on 8400, nothing on 9000. At 1250, JBA on 13970; at 1252 poor on 14430, fair at 1348. At 1435 FD weak and alone on 11990, but dominant and much stronger on // 12040 mixing with CNR1 and VOA Chinese, not // 14430. At 1440, 9845 // 12040 music with choral, …

** CANADA. Still zero signal from CFRX 6070 at 1320 check August 11. Harold Sellers passes on word from Steve Canney that the transmitter has been damaged again and is back in New York for repairs, so no telling how long it will be off. When it does come back, don`t expect to hear Peter Anthony Holder any more after …
