** 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 do not use quotation marks unless you want a lot of extraneous off-topic stories. Without them, by most recent this came right up: 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) …
