** AUSTRALIA. 9580, Wed Jan 9 at 1420, fascinating show about color perception (dogs see no red; some rare humans have cones for four primary colors instead of three, and some shrimp species has 20! Why?). Turns out to be `Radio Lab` from WNYC as widely heard on public radio in the US, but for SW, we are indebted to …

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, Jan 8 circa 1350, RA is interviewing a bubbly Brit/Canuckess, Mysti Vine, lamenting that there are so few black burlesque artistes. Axually, I think she enjoys standing out; concluding with reference to her site, http://www.comicgoddess.com — “The World’s Only Black Burlesque, Variety & Striptease Comedic Artist…(probably)“. Checking the gallery, she may be sufficient, but not especially busty …

** CUBA. 5855, Jan 7 at 0537, YL 5-digit Spanish number group, “38500“ just one, and on to digital tones, etc., etc., alternating. Nothing unusual noted on RHC frequencies tonight.

** CUBA. 6165, Jan 6 at 0609, RHC English is instead open carrier/dead air in yet another SNAFU. Along with 6010 and 5040, this is its strongest frequency here; those and weaker // 6060, 6125, were unaffected. At 0626 on 6165, guess what, digital noises, interrupted by Spanish spy numbers! YL with one 5-digit group only, “45411“, then back to …

** AUSTRALIA. 5995, Jan 4 at 1453, Elgar`s “Enigma Variations“, great classical music playing on RA, unusual for them, but most welcome! Until: faded out incomplete at 1459 for RA promo and then news, also on // 11945, while 9580 was already off at 1458, even more rudely. I suppose RA considered it merely fill music for some program missing …

** AUSTRALIA. 6007 & 6033, approx., distorted FMy spurblobs matching modulation on the RA Shepparton 6020 transmitter halfway between, Jan 2 at 1320. I was expecting this since the same transmitter is on 5995 after 1400 and sporadically spurblobbing 13 kHz above and below it. Jan 3 at 1348 check: no blobs around 6020 today. Not to be confused with …

** AUSTRIA. 9830, Dec 31 at 2118, African English accent about Jesus of Nazareth, with usual RTTY QRM, so another station ignoring that, or maybe it`s no problem in CIRAF 46, the W African target from Niger & Nigeria westward, of AWR, 2100-2130, 300 kW, 210 degrees from Moosbrunn. BTW, the latest `Wavescan` schedule from Adrian Peterson shows it`s not …

** CUBA. 11840, Dec 30 at 0143 check, RHC Spanish is back on here unlike last night, and not on 11750 which is supposed to be mornings only. Not on 9810 either. Sunday Dec 30 at 1446, tail of `En Contacto` finishing enumerating the names of the “129 most active E.C. listeners in 2012“. The only known SW program to …
