** ANGUILA [and non]. Re Caribbean Beacon local ID on SW 11775: George McClintock tells me the cause was RF from the MW 1610 transmitter getting into the SW audio processor. This has happened before. The reason it stopped at 1600 UT (1601 as Brandon Jordan observed May 26) is that the SW and MW become parallel at that time …

** ANGUILLA. I have accomplished the impossible: I have heard a local ID on the Caribbean Beacon! Normally it`s 24/7 DGS/PMS with no local breaks built in or ever exercised. Here`s how I did it: May 26 at 1329 tuned in 11775 to hear a hefty mix of three audio sources. On the bottom, something in Chinese, which disappeared at …

** CHINA. Firedrake survey May 24: barely caught a few bars of it on unusual 9390 until 1300*, but back on at 1308, poor; fortunately, no WWRB 9385 on yet. Against what? Per Aoki, at 12-13 on 9390 is R. Pakistan`s Chinese broadcast, so chalk up another neighbor to whom the ChiCom demonstrate their hostility. Aoki does not yet show …

** CHINA. Hunting for Firedrakes the morning of May 23: conditions depressed, and did not find any between 8 and 19 MHz except: 14420 at 1316, good signal, // weaker 15600. Note: some of these Firedrakes are likely coming from EAST TURKISTAN sites Kashi or Urumqi, but since SAFRT refuses to register their jammers with HFCC, we can`t be sure. …

** CANADA. Checked RCI 9515 again 24 hours later, May 20 at 2145 and no spurs in the 9.3 or 9.7 MHz area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1461, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake May 20 at 1319: best on 13970, next best 9000, and just barely audible on 8400, all // synchronized (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING …

** CANADA. May 19 at 2135 I was checking 9330 to see if I could get a signal there // 12085 Syria, q.v.. Instead I heard a big blob of extremely distorted talk, extending roughly 9320-9360, peaking around 9335. Figured it was most likely very strong WWRB 9385 which has done this before, or weaker but still spur-producing WTJC 9370 …

** AUSTRALIA. CVC 12000: see CUBA ** CHINA. 15375 at 1315 May 17 with Chinese talk, mixed with buzz; carrier also unstable; not // 12000 so not Russia, but // 15330 and 12040 so is CNR1 jamming. Victim is R Free Asia, Tibetan, 75 degrees via UAE at 11-14, inaudible. The buzz seems to be a defect in the ChiCom …

** CHINA. Firedrake May 16: not heard on 13970 before 1300, but at 1313 a good signal from it; became very good by 1340, and still audible at 1522 check. 15150 had FD weakly audible mixing with something else at 1315 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CROATIA [non]. Confirming that VOC via Germany has belatedly replaced 7375 with …

** CHINA. Firedrake observations May 15: at 1240, very poor, barely audible on 8400, while very good on 9000 and as has recently been the case, not // any more but from separate feeds. None audible today on 9400 under FEBC. Maybe they hit it by mistake previously, overzealously blocking anything heard in Chinese. At 1322 FD on 15150 fairly …

** ANGUILLA. After several days` absence, DGS was back on 11775, May 14 at 2132 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. As I was checking RFI on 17620 and 17630 before 2130 May 14, did not notice any RHC on 17660, scheduled in English until 2130. But at 2131 there it was, opening Kriyol as scheduled, distorted. …

** ANGUILLA [non]. Caribbean Beacon (as it never axually IDs) still missing from 11775 at 1228 May 13; could hear DCJC pulses QRMing weak Chinese signal, Commie jammer vs Commie jammer since the Chinese is on there to block All India Radio in Tibetan via Goa! Is 6090 also missing at night or are DGS/PMS stuck on that frequency also …
