** AUSTRALIA. 21740, May 2 at 0028, RA English very good here on reactivated frequency we used to listen to years ago. Great to have this OSOB back for good evening listening in off-target NAm. This is even stronger than NF 19000 (AM but destined to be DRM), which in turn is much stronger than old 17795. Tnx to Rick …

** AUSTRALIA. Further monitoring of R. Australia, lacking any new schedule following significant changes a week ago, no response to our direct request for one, nor on their own website, and of course, nothing at all registered with HFCC: 15160, May 1 at 0443, English is on here // 15515, about equal signals, and slightly weaker on 15240 in Indonesian, …

** ASCENSION. 17640, April 30 at 1346, BBCWS in English with long/short path echo. This is helpfully aimed 114 degrees from English Bay, so the long path traverses S. Africa, exiting over East London (shouldn`t that be South London?), across Indian Ocean near Amsterdam Island, WA and NT Australia, PNG, north of Hawaii, entering N. America at San Francisco, as …

** AUSTRALIA. 15240, April 29 at 0517, RA still in Indonesian on the wrong frequency and/or antenna, aimed toward Pacific and US (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake April 29, after 1300, not a complete bandscan: 15485, fair at 1307 with het on hi side vs V. of Tibet, Tajikistan 15500, fair at 1317, het on lo …

** AUSTRALIA. April 28, another day reconfirming fragments of new schedule of R. Australia, which they have still failed to display on their own website: 13630 on from *0500 in English, still no 13690 or 15160. 15240 at 0501 is again in Indonesian, good signal here obviously still on one of the Pacific azimuths, *not* toward Indonesia. While the other …

** AUSTRALIA. Contrary to my assumption in last report, RA has just made major frequency schedule changes, a month after A-12 began for everyone else, rather than being on `wrong` frequencies. 13630, April 27 at 0505, RA fair here about PNG, // good 15515, but missing from 13690 and 15160. Previously, RA English had been reliable on four frequencies at …

** AUSTRALIA. 9590, April 26 at 1250 surprised to find this RA frequency absent, while 9580 had interview about lack of public toilets for women in India. Searching for stories via http://www.abc.net.au/ra do not use quotation marks unless you want a lot of extraneous off-topic stories. Without them, by most recent this came right up: http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/international/radio/program/connect-asia/indian-activists-campaign-for-womens-right-to-pee/933868 9890, April 26 at …

** CHINA. Firedrake April 25, not a complete scan today, just noted: 15500, poor at 1342, but gone a few minutes later 16100, fair at 1340 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 15190, April 24 at 1914, fair signal from R. Africa, sounds like Tony Alamo; far enough south not to be attenuated like Spain 15110, Nigeria …

** CHINA. Firedrake April 23: 13780, fair at 1727. Aoki shows target must be RFA in Chinese via Tajikistan at 17-20 (which also collides with RFI in French at 18-20, if really on). One would expect CNR1 jamming instead. No full bandscan at this time, but checked one other RFA frequency: 9455, poor at 1729, Firedrake here too. Following geomag …

** ASCENSION. 7305, April 23 at 0527, BBCWS with announcement loop, “no programmmes on this channel at present“, which just might encourage ordinary listeners to tune away, but not me — 0529 cuts to Hausa opening. Why don`t they use that biminute for something more entertaining, like B-B-C- chimes, Oranges & Lemons, or Lilliburlero? 21630, April 23 at 1212, French …

** CHINA. Firedrake April 22 after 1300: 11500, poor at 1315 with flutter, seems mixing with VOR Tajikistan which is not modulating much if at all 12230, fair at 1315; none in the 13s 14700, open carrier at 1319, one word of Chinese, then Firedrake music cutting on 15500, poor at 1323, het on lo side 15570, poor at 1323 …

** CANADA [non]. 15125, April 21 at 1458, good signal with Chinese music (not Firedrake!); has to be prélude to RCI relay via Wulumuchi, EAST TURKISTAN. 1500, English `news from Radio Canada International, with Rick Svoboda` right away without any IS or sign-on! Nor explanation of why they were playing Chinese music before it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) …
