** BANGLADESH [and non]. 15105, as in previous report from Swopan Chakroborty that it was the Aug 12 test frequency from BB, not so by when I tuned in, BBC Ascension in Hausa at 1424 August 12 — since Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria soon reported that BB was on 15505, heard until 1545*. Several tried to hear it after then on …

** BANGLADESH. 15520, continued monitoring of Bangladesh Betar from previous report: Aug 10 at 1602: signal has declined to very poor, could be Qur`an in Arabic service; 1615 music audible. Nothing much left by 1630 when Turkey starts. (Evidently the Ethiopian DRM jamming is only around 1630-1645 per Wolfgang Büschel and Mauno Ritola). Not rechecked here until 1805 when frequency …

** BANGLADESH. 15520, new transmitter test of Bangladesh Betar external service is poorly audible Aug 10: 1322 tune-in to S Asian language, 1325 into singing, at first sounding Qur`anish, but probably not; tenor with lite drumming. There is also continuous noise along with it, and with BFO the carrier seems slightly unstable. It also seems the noise is coming out …

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, Thursday Aug 9 at 1345, RA is replaying the `Rear Vision` documentary heard earlier about the persecuted Hazara, now at the scheduled RV time. Seems they are subject to being killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan merely for looking “oriental“ as they are easily separated visually from S Asian ethnicities. They are also despised for being more progressive …

** BANGLADESH [and non]. 15520, Aug 8 at 1558, very weak signal with bits of modulation, presumably Bangladesh Betar, Dhaka, testing its brand-new transmitter toward Europe at 12-20 UT today, as tipped by Swopan Chakroborty? Instead of 7250 tested yesterday. 15520 is an old frequency of theirs, inactive for many years. In the meantime, other stations have been using 15520, …

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, August 7 at 1330, RA pulls away from Olympicism, for programming of significance, but not matching their own schedule! Online, both Pacific and Asian streams claim that this Tuesday at 1330 they were airing `Jazz Notes`, but instead I heard a program start about the Hazara, persecuted minority in Afghanistan, some of whom try to escape to …
