** ANGUILLA [non]. Caribbean Beacon missing from 6090, Sept 5 at 0513, but could not hear anything else, not even Brazil or Nigeria, just DRM from 6085. Should have tried earlier as Brian Alexander who first alerted us about this, heard both plus Ethiopia around 0300. CB also absent from 11775, Sept 5 at 1247, but again nothing else audible …

** CANADA [and non]. CFRX Toronto, back on the 6070 air as of Sept 3 around 0550, again with full modulation and good strength for only 1 kW. Had been off a few weeks for transmitter repairs, first reported by Steve Lare, MI, as reactivated the previous afternoon. No longer Peter Anthony Holder hosting talkshow at this hour, who in …

** ALBANIA. 13640, R. Tirana, Sept 2 at 2022, good signal and modulation with music, outro announcement, theme music and off at 2027:30*. Wish I had intuned at hourtop to hear the whole transmission starting with spoken material. This is the ONLY SW broadcast in English from Europe intentionally for North America at this hour, and R. Tirana deserves our …

** CANADA. Instead of Saturday mornings on webcasts, still seems strange to hear Stuart McLean storytelling on Vinyl Café in the middle of the night on SW, UT Wed Sept 2 at 0624 on CKZU 6160, fair signal, into a song. This is the repeat on the CBC Radio One schedule at 11:05 pm local Tuesdays; in fact, V.C. worx …

** AUSTRIA. It seems we may still refer to Radio Austria International, since that is exactly the ID in English, plus French, German and Spanish versions, mixed with Blue Danube IS heard at 0459 September 1 on 6155, rather than the cumbersome “Ö1“ or “OE1“; 0500 cut into that domestic relay in Austro-German (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** …

** CHINA. Firedrake check Aug 31 at 1331: poor on 9000, and barely audible/imagination level on 8400, nowhere else except in the 12040 mix (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** INDONESIA. VOI, 9524.9, already in English news when I tuned in at 1259 August 31; fair signal and weak modulation required straining to understand. Evidently their clock was a …

** BIAFRA [non]. VOBI via WHRI still on 15665, at quick check around 2015 UT Friday Aug 28; next week on 17520?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA.

** CHINA [and non]. Firedrake search Aug 28: at 1311 encountered on 15150, nowhere else except the usual mixture with CNR1 jamming on 12040. Aoki currently shows 15150 as one of many 1 kW SOH 24h frequencies from Taiwan, *jammed. Today`s variable het against DW Hausa 15410 via Rwanda, Aug 28 at 1347 was on 15412.0, no doubt V. of …

** CHINA. Unlike the day before, not a single Firedrake was heard in 8-19 MHz bandscanning Aug 26 between 1400 and 1500. Nothing much else from Asia above 12 MHz, but some signals below. Only Firedrakes audible Aug 27 at 1340-1343, 9000 and 10210, both poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. Seldom heard leapfrog from RHC on …

** CHINA. Firedrakes were back in force on August 25: at 1237, good on 9000; at 1249 on 10210, and in the usual mix on 12040. At 1255 on 13970 and 14420 (ex-14430); at 1257 poor on 15755; at 1300 listening to 10210 as it went to open carrier at TOH; at 1337 still on 13970 and 14420 but poor; …

** 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 …
