** CHINA. Firedrake check June 26: before 1300 barely audible on 9000; at 1305, very poor on 14420, nothing on 13500, 13970 or any others of the usuals (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** GABON [and non]. I often hear a weak station in French on 9580, which has to be the last SW frequency left from this country, …

** CANADA. 11850, YL in non-Mandarin Chinese dialect, June 25 at 1213, VG signal but with squeal – alternating 2 or 3 pitches, which almost seemed like exotic instrument musical accompaniment; it could be heard more clearly by tuning to the LSB, as the USB was bothered by BBC/GUF from 11860. It`s CRI in Cantonese as scheduled via Sackville during …

** AUSTRALIA. 15180, RA in Indonesian, June 24 at 0604 with Berita, ID; poor, weaker than RA English on 15160. 15180 is Darwin at 290 degrees, 0600-0630, in Indonesian M-F, English Sat/Sun per Aoki. Last time we heard RA in the morning with sport special, the four 31m frequencies were split 50-50, but June 24 at 1204 RA news in …

** CHINA. Firedrake check June 22: 1224 at `ramshorn` plus drumming segment, fair on 8400 // 9000. As bandscanned upward, did not come to another one until 1243 on 14420, very poor and nothing on 13970. Then another surprise at 1246: very poor on new 17470, // 9000. Nothing much on 16m, no Spain on 17595, Chile VP on 17680, …

** AUSTRALIA. VL8K, 2485, despite hi local line and storm noise level was audible June 20 at 1134 with enthusiastic Oz accent, sports? Around 9 pm local Saturday in NT. The others only detectable as carriers with BFO on, weaker 2325 and much weaker 2310. Of course it`s winter solstice there, which should boost the signals a little on the …

** BRAZIL. Missed checking last UT Sunday, a week after the first appearance of RNA on 6500 instead of 6185, but June 14 at 0513, it was back on 6185 as usual colliding with and atop XEPPM, nothing but the ute on 6500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake check June 14: around 1330 poor on 9400; …

** ANGUILLA. 11775, June 12 at 1330, PMS in the clear without crosstalk from 1610 programming. Also checked June 13: until 1330 sharp, could only hear DGS from this, but with SAH, Chinese mix from the jammer. Then DGS also in clear. I suspect the problem has not really been solved, but the power on 1610 during the morning reduced …

** ANGUILLA. June 11 seems to be a watershed date. Not only does VOI lose its modulation, but Pastor Melissa Scott is in the clear without the crosstalk from 1610 programming which has been heard daily for a couple of weeks in the mornings. June 11 at 1347 check. Defunct Gene Scott also in the clear at 1502 check (Glenn …

** CHILE [and non]. When I heard that CVC had moved Spanish to 11665 at 2300-0200, I assumed that replaced 6070 putting CFRX in the clear. Axually, 11665 replaces the last three hours on their other transmitter, 17680. June 9 at 2317, 11665 was VG with music, and on 6070 I could tell there were still two carriers with a …

** ALBANIA. R. Tirana, 13640, only and therefore best signal from Europe on 22m, S9+18, June 8 at 2025 with sports roundup in English, 2027:30 closing, theme, and off by 2028 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ARGENTINA [and non]. 15345, June 8 at 2036, fast SAH from two carriers, no doubt the usual collision between RAE and Morocco; …

** ASCENSION. BBC Hausa, 21630 at 1355 June 8 // 17780, with an echo between them making me suspect they were different sites, but listed as both Ascension, 65 and 55 degrees respectively. Deliberately offset modulation to even out power like at Tinian, or markedly different propagation paths? Nothing on 21470, the BBCWS English frequency which used to be the …

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Caribbean Beacon still mixing local MW and foreign SW programming on same frequency, June 7 at 1315 check, overblown dramatization, maybe Unshackled vs Pastor Melissa Scott. Was also still mixing on June 6 spotcheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA [and non]. 6100 at 1255 June 7 with Chinese traditional music, no doubt the postlude …
