** AUSTRALIA. 12065, April 12 at 1354, RA VG with `On This Day` in history, but skipping 1945y! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** AUSTRIA. 15155, April 11 at 2048, “How Great Thou Art“ hymn, heavy flutter, French talk but accented almost Creolish. HFCC reveals it`s AWR via Moosbrunn to Africa, during this semihour only. BTW, replying to Joe …

** ALASKA. 7355, April 11 at 1224, nondescript music, 1226 `The English Express` about conversational English, this time explaining the expression “Take one for the team“, originating with baseball; fair signal, typical KNLS fare (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ALBANIA. 11710, April 11 at 0507, CRI English fair signal about virus chickens; whence? Did not realize the Cërrik …

** BANGLADESH. 15505, April 10 at 1358, Bangladesh Betar on with IS, crosstalk but not quite as bad as yesterday; fast timesignal to 1358:48.5, theme and opening Urdu mostly with hum, but also with those parasitic buzzes peaking about 4.4 kHz above and below (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)  ** CHINA [and non]. 17510, April 10 at 1306, CCI …

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 6150, April 9 at 1231, R. Australia`s new frequency is atop co-channel RHC, which will continue for another semi-hour or so. I told Nigel Holmes about this, but of no concern there as long as RHC does not QRM in SW Pacific target. Aoki assumes Cuba 6150 is on 160 degree antenna toward S America. Meanwhile, …

** AUSTRALIA. 6150, April 8 at 1316, R. Australia on new frequency so the A-13 changes are finally in effect. Good here initially, // 9580, and missing from 6020 and any other 49m channel as well as 11945, as expected. 1332 show about apps, and I notice there is some hum on 6150, unusual for Shepparton, but it`s synchro with …

** AUSTRALIA. 11945, April 7 at 1412, R. Australia English is still on here // much stronger 9580, and 11945 with CCI — contrary to the RA A-13 schedule supposedly effective today, from Nigel Holmes, quoted in DXLD 13-13 showing 11945 reduced to 1100-1300, and toward Asia instead of Pacific. The beam change I could believe. Something surely needs to …

** AUSTRALIA. 15400, April 6 at 1459, HCJB is playing Celtic music, what else, in a service from Oz to S Asia? Into `Focus on the Family` episode including topic “should your marriage put up with mediocre sex?“ Hmm, who would answer, yes? Is this appropriate for such an audience? I suspect there is plenty of sex of some kind …

** ALBANIA. 9850, April 5 at 0129, R. Tirana again with VG strength and no QRM, but with IS which is extremely distorted (does anyone have a better quality recording of it from the old days before RT`s own tape wore out?). 0130 Klara signs on with completely correct English schedule including UT days of week, but instead of program …

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 15340, April 4 at 1259, collision between HCJB and RHC, but only briefly as the two transmissions overlap. HCJB soon off and continues on 15400 at 1301 in S Asian language, now overriding Iran playing its NA, but we can only imagine the head-on collision in IndoPak. Meanwhile, nothing on 15300, IRIB`s //, but it comes …

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 15400, April 3 at 1352, HCJB strong in S Asian language, presumed Hindi as scheduled, ex-15340, but continues to clash with Iran which was already using 15400 in A-seasons, making a SAH. Didn`t HCJB know this? Having used the same frequency successfully at a totally different daypart does not mean it will work now. Smax of …

** AUSTRALIA. 15400, April 2 at 1309, HCJB is inbooming in S Asian language, altho something underneath, see IRAN! HFCC A-13 still has nothing but “OLD-A12“ info for KNX, so HCA has neglected to register current usage, but 15400 has obviously replaced 15340, now left to RHC, matching its nominal sign-on time of 1300 with HCJB sign-off. Peter Hansen sent …

** ALBANIA. 9850, UT Tuesday April 2 at 0125, our first chance to check A-13 English: song is playing, good strength and no QRM (WHRI is on 9860 but not a bother), with usual muffled modulation from R. Tirana, as Shijak has turned on the transmitter early with a prélude of unknown provenance for the re-timed and re-frequencied English to …
