** BRAZIL. Much of it currently on DST, they imagine that 2012 arrives at 0200 UT instead of 0300 or 0400, so I check out RNA 11780 at 0158 UT January 1: good signal with upbeat song, 0159:30 to legal ID for 980 kHz with 300 kW from EBC, but no mention of SW which has slightly greater reach, no …

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, went with R. Australia for 2012y arrival at the shifted time of 1300 UT (9590 had heavy CCI at 1255, presumably CRI Russian despite due NW from SZG site). At 1257 two guys with timecheck for 11:56. Seems they are on rooftop of the ABC building in Melbourne awaiting fireworx display; 1259, 1 minute to go. At …

** BRAZIL. 6150, Dec 30 at 2300, pop music atop one or two other weak stations with SAH, so I keep listening hoping for some Turkish from Northern Cyprus` R. Bayrak; but no, 2304 announcement definitely in Brazilian Portuguese, so R. Record (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BRAZIL. 4915.0, Dec 30 at 2315, pop music vs CODAR, 2317 …

** BRAZIL. 11780, Dec 30 at 0635, strong open carrier, and just about the OSOB, from RNA; 0645 finally starts modulating with Portuguese wake-up talk in progress (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 30: none found 18-7 MHz 1346-1350, except: 12500, good with flutter at 1349; another search at 1437+ lacked even this (Glenn Hauser, OK, …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, Thu Dec 29 at 1435 check, still nothing from LRA36 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA [non]. 9635, Dec 29 at 1506, “The Link“ introducing Lynn Desjardins with a report about North Korea (but I assume she remains in Montreal), fair signal but heavy flutter, so RCI, having abandoned its North American audience, may still …

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 28: 1350-1355, none found 7-18 MHz. Tnx to several other monitors who are still hearing it at various times, reports all collected in DXLD in date/time order (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA [and non]. 9885, 13750 and 15590, Dec 28 at 1345, all three VOA Spanish frequencies are free of jamming, during `Buenos …

** BOTSWANA. 15570, Dec 27 at *2058, my tune-up theory is confirmed, as I was waiting for VOA on both 15570 and 15580. The lower came on with carrier at 2058, by 2059 VOA Bonaire was off 15580, but 15570 Botswana did not cut to 15580 until a few notes of the VOA opening had played on 15570 at 2100. …

** BOTSWANA. Shortly after posting my last logs, under USA [non], the likely explanation for VOA appearing on 15570 instead of 15580 at 21-22 UT Dec 26 occurred to me: because 15580 is used right up until 2100 by another site (Bonaire), Botswana tunes up before 2100 on 15570 instead, and simply stayed on it that day instead of switching …

** CHINA. 11945, Dec 26 at 2124, huge signal in Chinese from CNR1; it really stands out, as there is nothing like it anywhere else on 11 MHz or higher bands. Not in schedules, so we have R. Free Asia to thank for this, since if it were not broadcasting Mandarin at 95 degrees from Tajikistan overnight, all the way …

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 26: 1430-1436, and 1555-1600, complete bandscans from 7 to 19 MHz found none at all. I was hoping for some, as at the earlier hour, CNR1 + jammers were all over the 6 and 7 MHz bands with VG signals. Dec 26 at the late hour of 1622, I tune the 6 MHz band to see …

** CHINA. Re my previous report recommending `China Horizon` with Xmas music in Chinese this week: Alan Roe, UK, had already done the same and found where it`s at on CRI website: “A very pleasant programme and worth tuning-in — or downloading at http://media.iphone.cri.cn/features/horizons/2011/1225horizons.mp3 China Horizons is scheduled from xx.30 to xx.55 on Sunday at 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 7425, still here Dec 25 at 0018, Albanian music from R. Tirana, marred by fast SAH and CCI from China underneath, while 7420 is vacant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA [non]. 5990, Dec 24 at 2337, CRI via CUBA is playing “Silent Night“ in Chinese by women`s choir with organ and chime accompaniment, …
