** CANADA. 15365 // weaker 17790, Feb 3 at 1817, RCI has only these two frequencies left in English from Sackville for one hour a day, both 105 degrees for Africa, but well heard here off the back and beyond the skip zone. For once, the lingering focus on immigrants in Canada fits the big news lately about convicting three …

** BRAZIL [and non]. 11765, Feb 1 at 0626, SRDA Curitiba is the OSOB, with unmistakable wailing of David Miranda, but it`s very poor, // 9565. Lest one conclude all higher bands are dead, R. Australia is still better audible on its frequency hidden from HFCC, 15160 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BULGARIA [and non]. 7400, Jan 31 …

** BULGARIA. Missed the final 22 UT broadcast in English of R. Bulgaria Jan 30, and the final 00 broadcast UT Jan 31, so started to record the final final 03 broadcast, but reception too poor on 7400 and 5900. 7400 overridden by much stronger open carrier from 7395, i.e. MADAGASCAR already warming up for the 0315-0400 Swahili broadcast of …

** BELGIUM [non]. 17765, Sunday Jan 29 at 2021, RCI Portuguese service has VG signal on AM, but QRDRM noise clearly audible on 17765, 10 kHz away from “The Disco Palace“ TDP Radio in DRM via GUIANA FRENCH centered on 17755, which theoretically has a bandwidth of 10 kHz, i.e. 17750-17760 but is really more than 20 kHz.

** ALBANIA. 7530, Sat Jan 27 at 2130 I thought to check how R. Tirana is doing, but figured it was too late after the English broadcast at 2100 — but it was not. Still on the air with theme and opening Albanian, fair signal until cut off at 2130:12*. Altho there is no longer any SW transmission at 2130-2300, …

** BULGARIA [and non]. 15600, Jan 28 at 1453, doomed R. Bulgaria with traditional women`s choral music we shall greatly miss, as we did a minute later when most of the rest of the hour was Bulgarian talk. Good signal but as always marred by squishy spur of varying pitch around 15601 caused by the recalcitrant WEWN 15610. From Feb …

** ALBANIA. 7530, Jan 23 at 2100, R. Tirana opening English, barely audible in noise level. A month past shortest day, this transmission is losing out here, but should remain good for Europe, while we still have one other English broadcast, 0230 on 7420 (except UT Mondays) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BELGIUM [non]. 17755, Jan 23 at …

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 7240, Jan 23 at 1406, RA is interviewing an American pundit about the Republican primary race, who starts off by remarking that Santorum won Nebraska! Ooops, somewhere out there, but not close enough to Iowa. Voice sounds familiar but who is it? E. J. Dionne as outroed at 1414 on `Talking Point`. Such international outreach have …
