Tirana IS starts and mixes; other station off after 2357 leaving RT more or less clear. HFCC shows what the ChiCom are doing: 23-24 is 500 kW, 177 degrees, CRI Chinese via Kunming, and 00-01 …

** FRANCE [non]. Despite RFI having canceled all its English broadcasts on SW, it joins some other ex-SW broadcasters, such as Prague and Slovakia and Israel, in being `preserved` thanks to WRMI relaying WRN: UT Tue-Sat 0500-0600 on 9955 according to the latest schedules (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 17745, Sunday Jan 8 at 1519, …

** ALBANIA. 7425, Jan 7 at 2358, R. Tirana IS before Albanian hour to NAm, 0003 Jan 8 presumed news; not much CCI from China now, as R. Tirana has declined to move to 7420 to avoid it completely. This does not necessarily mean the collision is over as conditions vary (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ARGENTINA. 13363.5-LSB, …

Firedrake Jan 5 before 1500: 11980, good at 1451; no others 18-7 MHz found in the 1448-1453 period.   The only explanation for FD on 11980 is in …

** ALGERIA [non]. Besides many RFI transmissions, see FRANCE, an RTA frequency via Issoudun is also missing: Jan 4 at 0610, nothing on 5865. See the HFCC schedule at but note that it mixes in imaginary transmissions by sites inside Algeria, and also includes dates not currently in effect. Removing all the chaff, the remaining current daily schedule is: …

** BOTSWANA [and non]. 15580, Jan 3 at 0629, surprisingly bigsig from VOA African service, with program promos for `Hip-Hop Connection` and then for `South Sudan in Focus` at 1630-1700 on “9675 on 31m, 121-5 on 24.9 m, and 13870 on 21.6 m“ 121-5??? That`s how the announcer, who obviously knows nothing about SW, pronounced 12150? The trouble is, none …

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Jan 2 at 0633, PMS was off, uncovering weak het, presumably between Nigeria and Brasil. I think it was on earlier that evening.

** BRAZIL. Much of it currently on DST, they imagine that 2012 arrives at 0200 UT instead of 0300 or 0400, so I check out RNA 11780 at 0158 UT January 1: good signal with upbeat song, 0159:30 to legal ID for 980 kHz with 300 kW from EBC, but no mention of SW which has slightly greater reach, no …

Bayrak; but no, 2304 announcement definitely in Brazilian Portuguese, so R. Record (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BRAZIL. 4915.0, Dec 30 at 2315, pop music vs CODAR, 2317 …
