** CUBA. 1620, Dec 8 at 0039 UT as I tune in, Spanish, sounds like Raúl Castro, for the moment atop the US stations making slow SAH, i.e. R. Rebelde, probably the closest one, in Guanabacoa CH, 5 kW per WRTH 2013 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA [and non]. 11880, Dec 7 at 2132, open carrier from …

** ASCENSION. 21745-21750-21755, Dec 7 at 1443, DRM noise, fair signal but probably insufficient here. What`s this? Fortunately, “Ste Cooper“ had posted to the dxldyg:From the DRM Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/digitalradiomondiale.drm?fref=ts[It seems that FB no longer allows non-members to view anything?] “”On 7th December the BBC will run a DRM Short Wave transmission from the Ascension Island on 21750 kHz.

** GREECE. 7475, Dec 6 at 0626, R.

** CUBA. 11880, Dec 4 at 2102, RHC in French on new transmission to Africa, same YL `news` cast as on 11760, but I find that 11880 is 57 seconds behind 11760! i.e. quite separate playouts. At 2130, 11880 goes into Portuguese, and 11760 to open carrier about to close. At 2159, 11880 is switching to English for another hour. …

** ASCENSION [and non]. 17885, Dec 3 at 1955, BBCWS in Hausa with some hum typical of this site, generator signature? Good signal and the ONLY STATION ON BAND! Here it is mid-afternoon, the sun shining brightly, but nothing else from 17500 to 17900 to be heard. There is no blackout either, tho winter conditions could be keeping some eastern …

** AUSTRALIA. 5980 & 6010, Dec 3 at 1428, dirty distorted spurblobs from RA Shepparton 5995 are back, approx. frequency centres; last time they were closer to 5982 and 6008; during interesting `Big Ideas` discussion with author of a book about a people-smuggler, Ali, who was really a noble survivor of Iraqi/Saddam torture; she wrote it in the first person. …

** CHINA [and non]. Firedrake Dec 2: 7390, poor at 1419, underneath Chinese, i.e. VOA Cantonese via Tinang, PHILIPPINES. No other Firedrake found 12-18 MHz at 1450-1454 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. 15340, Dec 2 at 1405 and still at 1452, dead air from RHC, like last Sunday, as the incompetent operators again fail to modulate what …

** BOLIVIA. 6105.56 approx., Dec 1 at 2345, I am finally getting a very poor carrier near the off-frequency reported by others from R. Panamericana, La Paz. And there is even some Spanish audio, maybe religious talk, with words like “el señor“ and “la vida“. A much weaker carrier on 6105 which had usually been dominating, presumed China radio war …

** AUSTRALIA. 4835, Dec 1 at 1344, poor signal with English talk, no doubt VL8A not yet faded out.

** CHINA. Firedrake Nov 30: none found 18-12 MHz around 1355 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** FRANCE. 7295, Nov 30 at 0624, expecting to hear Algeria relay, but this is neither in Arabic nor French but a tonal African language, must be Hausa; assertive speech and rustic music, 0629 some RFI sounders and cut off at 0630* abruptly. …

** AUSTRALIA. 11650, Nov 29 at 0552 check, R. Australia is gone again from unscheduled frequency where it was heard 24 hours earlier; audible on 13630, and NZ 11725 is propagating OK. Wolfgang Büschel agrees that 11650 is not on now, and the frequencies scheduled to Asia at 0600 are 17750 and 21725; maybe one of those was missing (Glenn …
