** ALGERIA [non]. 7295, Oct 2 at 0455, TDF Issoudun, FRANCE, fakes me out, and relays RTA/TDA for a second date after first hearing in 6+ months on Oct 1. Good signal with Qur`an and louder than Tunisia 7275 but that`s undermodulated. Cut off air abruptly, Allah`ll get `em for that, at 0458* but back on 7295 at *0459 weaker …

** ALGERIA [non]. 7295, Oct 1 at 0527, Arabic talk and music alternating, maybe Qur`an included, with flutter, past 0530 where there is normally no such signal. Also on very poor // 9535.

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36: last apparent log was Oct 13, 2011 by Ron Howard. I kept looking for it for months, especially on allegedly most active Thursdays around 1400, and occasionally there was a weak carrier on 15475 instead, but never anything definite and finally gave up after 6+ months. However, almost every morning I tune across 15476 in bandscanning, …

** ALBANIA. 9590, Sept 29 at 0538, CRI Arabic via Cërrik is rather distorted, unlike // 9515. Not the first time I have noticed such a problem. I wonder if same transmitter is also distorting English earlier on another frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** AUSTRALIA. 11945, Sept 29 at 0534, R. Australia, fair signal is on early …

** BANGLADESH. 15105, Sept 27 at 1238, poor signal from BB in English, but at least it`s on today; 1259 very poor at “end of transmission“, usual brief tone and off 1300* and background noise gone too. Yet again no sign of the Nepali broadcast on 15105 at 1328 check. 15505, *1356.4 open carrier, tone peaking at S9+12, 1358.4 start …

** BANGLADESH. 15105, Sept 26 at 1256, weak signal with flutter, seems English, 1257 to dead air, presumed Bangladesh Betar. (Meanwhile DRM noise from India to Sri Lanka blasting in on 15045-15055). Looks like I did not miss much; Wolfgang Büschel reports: “VERY DISTORTED AUDIO FEED quality today noted, totally unintelligible, at 1230-1254 UT tune in, only English could be …

** BANGLADESH. 15105, Sept 25 at 1259, BB is back after missing since Sept 21, tune in very poor signal just in time to hear sign-off in English, brief tone test, and off at 1300. At 1316, 15105 is back on with presumed Nepali, S Asian music, slightly better at poor level now. At 1328 music with heavy flutter; 1344 …

** BANGLADESH. BB is missing for the third day in a row from previously known schedule; last heard Sept 21 until 1300* on 15105. Now no sign of it Sept 24 at 1237, nor 15105 at 1315, nor 15505 at 1400 (both frequencies checked at all times, just in case). Is anyone hearing it anywhen, including the 7250 transmissions later? …

** BANGLADESH. 15105, Sept 23 at 1252, no signal from Bangladesh Betar this Sunday, despite lots of ChiCom signals on the band; nor around 1335; nor on 15505 from 1359 past 1401. Also absent Saturday, so we wonder if BB just takes the weekends off, or is something else wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. 4940, Sept …

** CANADA. 6110, Sept 20 at 0523, Sackville has done it again! Dead air instead of NHK English relay. We are beginning to look forward to the switch to Guiana French for B-12 once Sackville is completely kaput. Not that they are perfect either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also KOREA SOUTH [non] ** CANADA [and non]. 11795, …
