** CUBA. 13780, Feb 18 at 1435, RHC talk modulation is breaking up, but not the musical intervals. So problem is in the mike cord now?

Veritas Asia, Palauig, PHILIPPINES, is already on well before nominal …

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6135+, Feb 18 at 0056, big het, no doubt BOLIVIA on the lo side, and R. Aparecida on the hi side. Can make out some music on the upper, so compare it to 9630-; yes, sounds the same altho not with two receivers for exact //. Then at 0106 I can make out some Portuguese on …

** ARGENTINA. 15345v, Feb 16 at 0129, silly ballgame pauses a moment for R. Nacional ID; fair with flutter, and no attempt to pinpoint the frequency, but with BFO it`s fluxuating by Doppler, I think, rather than transmitted that way, like WINB. No sign of an LTA feeder with a game on 13363.5-LSB, nor 15820-LSB; nor Chile 12365-USB (Glenn Hauser, …

** AUSTRALIA. 21740, Feb 14 at 2117, huge signal from RA in English, and as always round this daypart, the OSOB! What a pity that countless other Pacifican, not to mention, Asian and American countries, have *no* interest in SW broadcasting on this band when it`s wide open to N America. 21740 is officially of course only for the Pacific …

** CANADA [and non]. 6070, Feb 14 at 0624, it`s still hard to hear CFRX during the sesquihour between RHC and Vatican, as the other RHC frequencies, and sometimes the Tennesseans, are overloading the FRG-7 on 49m, desensitizing weaker channels, and applying attenuation is not enough to clear them up vs weakening the desired signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING …

** BOLIVIA. 4717-, Feb 14 at 0058, R. Yura no doubt on characteristic off-frequency, very poor to poor but enough for some music to be heard. A month ago, Bob Wilkner measured it on 4716.65. Stig Hartvig Nielsen visiting Bolivia doesn`t split kHz, but said it`s just R. Yura, forget the Yatun etc., stuff as in listings (Glenn Hauser, OK, …

  ** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 11595, Feb 13 at 1448, SW Asian music, poor signal with deep fades, cut off at 1459* amid announcement. HFCC and Aoki shows this is VOA R. Ashna in Pashto 1430, then Dari 1500-1530, both 100 kW, 88 degrees from Biblis, GERMANY; but what happened to the second half? There should not have been any transmission …

Looking for FT5ZM Amsterdam Island, nominal 24955-USB on penultimate day on air, but Feb 11 at 2257 only hear a modest pileup on 24945-USB including KB1WH; and at 2307 someone working an HL5 on 24945-USB.

** CANADA. 6070, Feb 12 at 0642, CFRX is back! with talkshow, mostly YL, but heavy ACI this semihour from 6075 Vatican. That should lessen as spring approaches and disappear in A-14 with VR probably moving back up to 7250, at 0530. Tnx to Stephen Wood in MA for tip earlier Feb 12 that it was back on, but so …

** JAPAN. 9750, Feb 11 at 1453, NHK is playing a bit of “La Mer“, then some other classical music; with SAH, 1500 timesignal and strained Japanese talk, quite a contrast, sound effects, then “Higher Ground“ originally by Stevie Wonder, 1506 a cover of “Brick House“ originally by the Commodores. Seems the Radio Japanese let their hair down at midnight. …
