** CHILE. 17680, Aug 17 I monitor CVC La Voz more than I ever have before, on the last day ever of broadcasts from the Calera de Tango site: it`s all in Spanish, pushing gospel with rock, neither of which appeal to me at all. 1925, mentions 14 years on SW, started in 1998y; interview about future plans reaching listeners …

** BANGLADESH [and non]. 15105, August 17 at 1345-1349* a weak carrier here, maybe following BB`s Nepali service as allegedly scheduled 1315-1345. I keep tuned to rehear their IS at 1358 before Urdu as on previous days. But from *1358 instead on 15105 it`s B-B-C- chimes from Ascension, about to start Hausa. Not until 1401 do I try Bangladesh Betar`s …

** AUSTRALIA. 5990-5995-6000, August 16 at 1215, DRM noise audible here from R. Australia, Brandon. I was wondering if that were still vigent, as RA has been stymied from adding DRM from Shepparton as long planned. Aoki shows 5995: DRM Brandon with only 5 kW at 12-14, preceded by AM from Brandon with 10 kW at 08-12, and followed by …

** BANGLADESH. 15105, August 15 at 1240, no signal from Bangladesh Betar when supposedly on in English, nor on alternates 15505, 15520. Nothing on 15105 at 1339 (there should be a Nepali service in here at 1315-1345, as heard Aug 13 on 15105 by Partha Sarathi Goswami, West Bengal). Before 1400 I am standing by on 15105, and yes, again …

** ARGENTINA. 11710.9, Aug 14 at 0121-0123+, RAE must be another station competing in the dead-air sweepstakes; characteristic off-frequency gives it away, instead of Japanese during this hour (when it has little chance of reaching Japan anyway) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BANGLADESH. Swopan Chakroborty in West Bengal, who seems to be in contact with Bangladesh Betar, reported …

** BANGLADESH [and non]. 15105, as in previous report from Swopan Chakroborty that it was the Aug 12 test frequency from BB, not so by when I tuned in, BBC Ascension in Hausa at 1424 August 12 — since Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria soon reported that BB was on 15505, heard until 1545*. Several tried to hear it after then on …

** BANGLADESH [non?]. 15520, Aug 12 at 1348, no signal at all, so is Bangladesh Betar somewhere else today? Yes! Just in from Swopan Chakroborty that today`s test frequency is 15105 at 12-20, reports eagerly awaited at rrc @ about reception and to betar.external @ about programming. 15105, Aug 12 1424, very poor signal with talk, probably Urdu …

** ARGENTINA. 15345.1, Aug 12 at 0142, R. Nacional exceptionally good at S9+20 in Spanish discussion, soon playing “This Land Is Your Land“ in English. No RAE on 11711v since it`s a weekend; transmitter stays on 15 MHz much later. Tried 13363 for LTA but nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BANGLADESH. 15520, Aug 11 at 1820, very …

** BANGLADESH. 15520, continued monitoring of Bangladesh Betar from previous report: Aug 10 at 1602: signal has declined to very poor, could be Qur`an in Arabic service; 1615 music audible. Nothing much left by 1630 when Turkey starts. (Evidently the Ethiopian DRM jamming is only around 1630-1645 per Wolfgang Büschel and Mauno Ritola). Not rechecked here until 1805 when frequency …

Vatican Radio leaving SW and MW, somewhat

Glenn, I get a newsletter from DICI and they had the following link within the most recent issue: (Jack Smith, Stulti rident linguam Latinam, Aug 10, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Viz.: 10-08-2012 Filed under From Rome, News 3-vatican_radio_ On July 1, 2012, the Santa Maria di Galeria Transmission Centre, located near Rome, suspended its shortwave and medium-wave transmissions to Europe …

** BANGLADESH. 15520, new transmitter test of Bangladesh Betar external service is poorly audible Aug 10: 1322 tune-in to S Asian language, 1325 into singing, at first sounding Qur`anish, but probably not; tenor with lite drumming. There is also continuous noise along with it, and with BFO the carrier seems slightly unstable. It also seems the noise is coming out …

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, Thursday Aug 9 at 1345, RA is replaying the `Rear Vision` documentary heard earlier about the persecuted Hazara, now at the scheduled RV time. Seems they are subject to being killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan merely for looking “oriental“ as they are easily separated visually from S Asian ethnicities. They are also despised for being more progressive …
