In Communication of the British DX Club, Tony Rogers reported it Jan 29 from 1430 to 1445* clearly mentioning ``7.230 MHz`` [in English?] at sign-off, so maybe they are mis-punching the frequency, temporarily?

9595 INDIA. AIR GOS, 1612 UTC, Feb 13 2016. test tone to 1615 UTC Sign On in Russian. Very Good. (Delmage, AB)
9615 & 9655 ALASKA. Feb 8 at 1420, NO signals, not even carriers from KNLS as scheduled this hour in English, Chinese respectively; instead see ROMANIA. Off the air, or totally unpropagating? (Hauser, OK)
9630 BRAZIL. Radio Aparecida-Aparecida, at 0435, on 13 Feb. A male announcer was talking briefly. This was followed by a slow song being sung by a male singer. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
9655 ROMANIA. Feb 8 at 1420, S8 station in Romanian, safely assuming it`s RRI as scheduled. I was looking for KNLS Alaska as also scheduled in Chinese, but no trace of it here, nor on 9615 in English. 1422 plays ``Love Me, Tender`` song in English but not sure it`s Elvis; did anyone else dare sing it? 1424 back to Romanian announcement (Hauser, OK)
9660 CHINA. CNR 1 Jammer, 0107, 2/12/16, in Mandarin. Woman announcer, musical bridge, man announcer, fanfare to man and woman announcers alternating. Fair. Vs unheard Radio Free Asia in Uighur via KWT // 9670 vs Radio Free Asia in Uighur via TJK (Fair); 9690 (fair). (Taylor – WI)

9745 EGYPT. Radio Cairo-Avis, at 0440, on 13 Feb. A male announcer is speaking in Arabic as listed. There was a brief musical interlude followed by more talk. I am not hearing the usual hum from this transmitter tonight as bad as it usually is. It is there but barely perceptible. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
9765 SRI LANKA. Deewa Radio (VoA) – Iranawila, 0125, 2/10/15, in Pashto. Man with mention of Bernie Sanders and “VoA,” correspondent report apparently from New Hampshire primary with many mentions of Bernie Sanders including taking questions from the studio announcer. Good. (Taylor – WI)
9800 PHILIPPINES. VOA relay heard at 1339 on 2/8/16. the song "I'll be your man" by Richard Marx, followed by a woman speaking in listed Korean. Good. (Brossell, WI).
9819.4 BRAZIL. Radio Aparecida – Aparecida, 0129, 2/10/16, in Portuguese. Program of call ins with studio announcer. Fair. // 9630 also fair. (Taylor – WI)

9855 MADAGASCAR. NHK Radio Japan-Talata, at 2035, on 9 Feb. A male announcer is speaking in French as listed in what sounds like news headlines and stories. The program ended with a song sung by a male singer at 2100. Good. (Cooper, PA)
9860 CHINA. CRI Kashi heard at 2228 on 2/8/16. talks in listed Esperanto by a woman. Fair. (Brossell, WI).
9890 KUWAIT. Radio Free Asia relay heard at 2233 on 2/8/16. talks by a man and woman in listed Tibetan. Fair-to-poor. (Brossell, WI).
9910 GUAM. KTWR Guam-Agana, at 1435, on 12 Feb. A slow (P), religious sounding song was on with several female singers. This was followed by a quick station ID given by a female announcer. A male speaker came on and started talking in (P) Korean as listed. Poor. (Cooper, PA)
9915 UNITED KINGDOM. BBC-Wooferton, at 2030, on 9 Feb. A male BBC news announcer came on and gave a program ID followed by a female announcer giving news headlines with the leadoff story being the war in Syria. Good. (Cooper, PA)
9935 GREECE. Feb 9 at 0719, ERA is on here and putting out the humwhine, S5 [+] Feb 12 at 0037, ERA at S9+10, of whine, trace of program modulation underneath. 9420 is OK at S9 (Hauser, OK)
9955 U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1811 monitoring: confirmed the Tuesday 1200 on WRMI, tuned in just before ending at 1228, VG signal at S9+10 with no jamming audible. After 1230 on to `Angloparade`. [*][+] Wed Feb 11 at 1402, tune-in to WRMI for `FG Radio`, just hearing one news item about North Korea missile. FG Radio ID and 1403 into a couple songs, outroed as ``Comin` Inside So Strong``, a soulful protest; 1409 ``repeating the headlines`` for 4 minutes, a lot more than I heard at the top: NK satellite into space ``yesterday`` (it went up UT Sat Feb 6 circa 18 UT, so FG Radio is old news already); Turkey too full of refugees; someone killed in Cyprus fall; something up in UK; Zika virus risk; Dan Hicks dies. 1413 more music and no outro until 1415 gh ID preceding WORLD OF RADIO [+] Next check for the Feb 10 Wed 1415 airing on WRMI 9955: as usual gh ID fires about 1415, and WOR play starts at 1415:33, good. Also confirmed Wed Feb 10 at 2200 on WBCQ at about 7490.018-AM, and probably drifting slowly downward. Also barely confirmed at 0030 UT Thu Feb 11 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, but tonight it`s just barely audible, apparently at whims of the MUF, but overall should be improving as the sun sets later and later. WORLD OF RADIO 1812 monitoring: confirmed first SW broadcast underway at 1233 UT Thu Feb 11 check on WRMI 9955, good but with pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! How would you like it if the Yanquis jammed your DX program, either deliberately or thru negligence? The fortunate Cubans have never needed to worry about that, tnx to American ideals. Also confirmed Thu Feb 12 at 2100 on WRMI 7570, but only a poor signal (while 15770 with other programming is much better now, as we have crossed the threshold of LUHF trumping azimuth --- 7570 is aimed right at us but getting more and more absorbed, yet 15 MHz aimed sidewise overcomes by being closer to the MUF). [*] (Hauser, OK)
9965.30 EGYPT. Feb 12 at 0110, R. Cairo is S9+ but just barely modulated, and with Doppler flutter --- also applying to many other signals as the ionosphere is jittery (Hauser, OK)
11499.925 approx. TAIWAN. Feb 11 at 1435, very poor signal in Chinese, and listed by Aoki on 11500 only as one of countless Sound of Hope 100-watt nuisance transmitters available over very long hours, but it`s surely somewhat more than that. Yet being off-frequency, more likely this than a CNR1 jammer. At 1437 brief QRM from US-military sounding SSB, how copy? Probably closer to 11500, but nothing further heard from him (Hauser, OK)
11580 U S A. Feb 8 at 1441, WRMI in fill-music loop, with Qur`an-sounding singing at the moment, 1442 into some Afro-pop. It seems the 13-15 bihour is a good time to enjoy the WRMI FML without interruption by programming, except on Sundays when there is some religionism other than Overcomerism [+] Feb 11 at 1326, this WRMI frequency is in BS rather than fill-music which was being heard a few days ago in the 13-15 apparent gap in TOM usage (and of course, immediately outdating what I said about that on WOR 1812) [+] 11580, Fri Feb 12 at 1401, WRMI is back to fill-music loop instead of BS on this frequency, S9 but a bit of modulation distortion at peaks. At tune-in, sounds like Qur`an of all things, then to Afro pop, 1411 German, 1415 mbira, 1417 calypso, 1420 polka. I`ve asked Jeff to provide a playlist of the repetitive FML so we can identify the tunes more precisely, but I`m sure he has plenty to do without that task. At 1457 a bit of Arabic mentions Allah, 1500 sharp cut to BS who immodestly conceives of himself as a prophet superior even to Mohammed (Hauser, OK)
11600 BULGARIA. Bible Voice – Kostinbrod (P), 1702, 2/13/16, in Farsi. Man announcer at some length, musical bridge of Persian music to same man. Fair. (Taylor – WI)
11625 VATICAN CITY. Vatican Radio-Santa Maria di Galleria, at 2025, on 9 Feb. A male announcer is speaking in English about an election for president of the world soccer federation. This was followed by a station ID and then the interval music for VR. Good. (Cooper, PA)
11630 CHINA. CNR 17 – Lingshi (P), 0138, 2/10/15, in Kazakh. Man talking at some length. Poor. (Taylor – WI)
11635 TAIWAN. Radio Taiwan International heard at 2244 on 2/8/16. a man speaking in Mandarin. Poor. (Brossell, WI).
11670 INDIA. AIR, 1845 UTC, Feb 13 2016. English programming of songs. Excellent until Radio Havana Cuba came on at 1900 UTC. // 13695 kHz and 9950 kHz both weak. (Delmage, AB)
11695 CHINA & KUWAIT. Both CNR 1 jammer and Radio Free Asia target, 0141, 2/10/16, CNR in Mandarin, RFA in Tibetan. CNR jammer on top with woman announcer // 11600 jammer. Music with male announcer under from RFA. A mess. (Taylor – WI)
11719.70 ARGENTINA. RAE-General Pacheco, at 0325, on 9 Feb. A female announcer is talking in (P) English as listed. The audio is very poor and I am unable to identify the language at this time. JBA. (Cooper, PA)
11735 TANZANIA. ZBC Radio Zanzibar-Dole, at 2007, on 9 Feb. An instrumental song is playing with drums, flutes, and an African beat. The same song is still on 30 minutes later which leads me to believe the station is not transmitting regular programming but is just playing (P) interval music on a loop. Poor. (Cooper, PA)
11765 BRAZIL. Super Radio deus e Amor, 0501, Feb 8 2016. full station ID in Portuguese followed by religious songs. Fair (Delmage, AB)
11764.70 BRAZIL. Super Radio Deus e Amor-Curitiba, at 0320, on 9 Feb. A male announcer was talking in a loud voice. This was followed by a new male speaker talking. Poor. (Cooper, PA)
11780 BRAZIL. Radio Nacional Brazilia-Brazilia, at 0315, on 9 Feb. A song with a male singer was playing with two male announcers speaking over the music. There were several station ID’s given by a male announcer. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
11810 SOUTH KOREA. KBS World Radio – Kimje (P), 0142, 2/13/16, in Spanish. Program of mellow vocal music with woman announcer. Fair. (Taylor – WI)
11860 OPPOSITION. Feb 9 at 1430, very weak signal from R. Sana`a! Not rechecked until 1455, as during this semihour the Tuesday following the first Wednesday of the month is KOSU`s `The Living Room` interview, this time with the OKC police chief and a subordinate. Then I realize this doesn`t sound like R. Sana`a at all --- none of the familiar music bits and exhortations, not even sure it`s Arabic, ergo, R. Sana`a is gone and I`m getting the station it normally covers up starting at 1430, VOA Radio Ashna, in Pashto, 250 kW, 70 degrees via KUWAIT (and switching to Dari at 1500). I quickly scan the entire 11 and 13 MHz bands for a new Sana`a frequency, but none found. Propagation seems to be normal or even above normal judging from other signals heard. Finally circa 1512, Sana`a cuts back on 11860 with Arabic talk, so it was just an outage. It`s at usual level of S9+10, still at 1535. [+] Feb 8 at 1445 I start monitoring R. Sana`a continuously in case some Call To Prayer should appear. First, heavy music and exhortations, bit of a distressed child`s voice; 1454 the vamping music with ``mission statement``; song past 1502, finally talk at 1506 past 1508, so it seems the CTP exercise in piety is a past-thing. I wonder if the Sunni and Shia disagree too about the importance of broadcasting them. By now the gaisma.com <http://gaisma.com> calculated sunsets have progressed to 1504 UT in Sana`a and Aden; the change is slowing so that it will take another month to laten by 6-8 minutes [+] Feb 10 at 1417, R. Sana`a with loud ME music at S9+20; 1424 ``Allahu Akhbar``, and a brief speech with echo effect, background music, mentions Adan; 1425 back to music, song. Feb 11 at 1410, R. Sana`a, very good S9+20 in Arabic, mostly talk instead of music today, M&M studio conversation past 1424. From *1430 lite QRM from IBB KUWAIT underneath, which has stuck to its original frequency for Afghanistan despite this Yemeni business nearby. By 1456, now martial music, 1501 talk and still no call-to-prayer in next few minutes. [*][+] Feb 12 at 1356, Republic of Yemen Radio (which seems to be more like the ID in Arabic), is unusually weak today at S3-6. By 1458 it`s up to usual S9+10, but deep fades to S8, with its familiar theme music, 1501 switch to YL in Arabic talk. Today it`s equal S9+10 to 11825 WRMI, but that has less fading. Trying to explain how I get such a strong signal here, Wolfgang Büschel is also suggesting now that it could be a narrow long-path route from Saudi Arabia across the Indian Ocean, Antarctica, Pacific. Expanse and quality of this opening should be gradually shifting with the seasons and there are signs of that already (Hauser, OK)
11860 CLANDESTINE to Yemen. Radio Sana’a, (via SAUDI ARABIA (P), at 1410, on 12 Feb. The station has a male speaker talking. Later in the BC it sounded like a (P) new male speaker came on. Although there are other anecdotal reports in the mid-Western USA about this stations location, and its signal strength being high, it is not coming in to good at this QTH when checked on multiple days. Poor. (Cooper, PA)
11865 THAILAND. BBC-Nakhon Sawan, at 1245, on 12 Feb. A male announcer is talking in English about news stories from Russia and Ukraine. A female announcer came on and started talking about England. A male announcer came on and talked about a web address but the audio was poor so I could not copy it. A female announcer came on and talked about England again with an interview of Ozzie Osborne from Black Sabbath. A male speaker came on and said that was all from the “Horror Hour?” A BBC WS station ID was given by the female announcer with the station going off the air at 1300. There was no scheduled transmission on this frequency that I saw with BBC Thailand being the closest frequency that was listed for 11895 from 1200-1300 UTC which was not broadcasting. Fair-Poor. (Cooper, PA)
11915 GERMANY. Bible Voice, 1706, 13/13/16, in Arabic. Man talking at length. Fair. (Taylor – WI)
11935 BRAZIL. RB2-Curituba, at 0230, on 9 Feb. A male announcer gave two station ID’s along with a female speaker, and a male announcer speaking. This was followed by a male announcer talking and then a song playing with a male singer. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
12015 NORTH KOREA. Voice of Korea-Kujang, at 2000, on 9 Feb. A song with a female choir is singing an operatic sounding song. A male announcer came on and spoke in Spanish as listed, followed by a new song. Fair-Poor. (Cooper, PA)
12025 INDIA (GOA). AIR – GOS – Panji (P), 1708, 2/13/16, in Hindi. Program of South Asian music with woman announcer. Fair. (Taylor – WI)
12035.025 TURKEY. Feb 8 at 1428, V. of Turkey IS, ID in unknown language but probably Kazakh, and stays on 12035+ thru accurate timesignal at 1430 and opening in presumed Kazakh. Still on 12035+ past 1437, so the poor Kazakhs are missing their service on 9785, as yet again the Emirler operator has been asleep at the switch, failing to make the change to 9785 a few minutes before 1430. When they are really on 9785, VOT should announce that listeners should check 12035 if they don`t hear anything on 9785; yeah, right [+] 12035, Feb 11 at 1425, TRT IS is only S5-S9, as I`m comparing it unfavorably to Yemen (non) on 11860, so I stay tuned a while to see if they make the QSY in time today. 1426 ID in presumed Kazakh, the next language after 1330 English; off at 1427* so I retune to 9785 to find a very weak algo, until *1428 VOT cuts on about a minute after leaving 12035, resuming IS at only S4-S8, with SAH from the understation, which per Aoki is CNR8 Korean service, 100 kW, 63 degrees from Beijing site 12035, Feb 14 at 1427, VOT IS at S5-7, then periodic IDs in unknown language, presumably Kazakh which is next on the schedule after 1330 English, but not on this frequency. 12035 keeps going past 1430 accurate timesignal and opening Kazakh, until chopped off at 1430:33*. Meanwhile, the poor Kazakh audience is only hearing China on 9785, like I am; until VOT cuts on with stronger but still inadequate signal here, at *1432:43. It`s slightly offset from China, starting a double het against the BFO. The tardiness could be, and has been worse by the sloppyrators at Emirler (Hauser, OK)
12035 TURKEY. Voice of Turkey-Emirler, at 1400, on 12 Feb. A song sung in Turkish was playing. This was followed by a Voice of Turkey station ID by a male announcer in English as listed. A new song sung in Turkish came on next. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
12060 CUBA. Feb 12 at 0039, pulse jamming is very poor but obvious, second harmonic bleeding out of the pileup on 6030 against Martí (Hauser, OK) See also PERU [and non]
12075 VATICAN CITY. VOA Radio Ashna-Santa Maria di Galleria, at 1540, on 14 Feb. A male and a female announcer were talking to another male as if they were interviewing him. The listed language is Dari. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
12075 KUWAIT. Radio Azadi (Radio Free Afghanistan), at 1400, on 12 Feb. A male announcer is presenting news headlines along with news clips in English that are translated into (P) Dari as listed. A female speaker came on and spoke followed by the male announcer again. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
12085 AUSTRALIA. Radio Australia-Shepparton, at 1350, on 12 Feb. A male announcer is interviewing a female speaker about her career as a Psychologist. This was followed by an ABC Radio promo for the station. Good. (Cooper, PA)
13590 SAO TOME. VOA-Pinheira, at 1950, on 9 Feb. A female announcer is talking in very slow annunciated English about a Saturday Night Live skit in reference to the Republican debate recently. A male announcer than came on and talked about travel to Cuba by Americans. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
13590 SRI LANKA. VOA-Iranawila, at 1345, on 12 Feb. A male announcer is talking to another male speaker in (P) Pashto as listed. A VOA station ID was given followed by a musical interlude and then back to talking. Poor. (Cooper, PA)
13640 INDIA. AIR-Bengaluru, at 1947, on 9 Feb. An instrumental song is playing with several sitars playing. This was followed by a female announcer speaking in French as listed. Fair. (Cooper, PA)

13695 FRANCE. Radio France International-Issoudun, at 1940, on 9 Feb. Two female announcers are talking back and forth with each other. You can hear AIR underneath with a song playing and then a male announcer speaking in English before the sign off at 1945. A male announcer came on RFI and spoke in French as listed. Fair. (Cooper, PA)
13745 THAILAND. Radio Thailand-Udon, at 0040, on 10 Feb. A female announcer is talking about Thailand as being a tropical paradise and to come visit. There is heavy QRM from 13740 RHC, so I am using USB setting. Several Thai nationals are being interviewed on what they would like to see in their country. The female announcer stated that Thailand is ranked 26th in the world as a popular country. Fair-Poor. (Cooper, PA)
13830 IRAN. VOIRI, Ahwaz, 1411-1414. Talk in Dari by a woman, occasionally joined by a man. Weak signal with minor fading. 2/7/2016 (Evans - TN)

21675 U S A. Feb 8 circa 1443, WRMI is barely audible, but sure sounds like Brother Scare; 1719 UT recheck, now 21675 is good, much better than synchronized // 15770 and 11825. So what`s become of Radio Africa Network? RAN was also carrying BS but supposedly from 1000 until stopping at 1400. So did WRMI or RAN fail to make the switch, or is RAN gone? [+] Feb 8 circa 1443 UT check, very poor WRMI signal, but sounds like Brother Scare instead of Radio Africa Network. RAN supposedly carries BS until 1400, then own programming. Ivo Ivanov later confirms it`s still BS on 21675 past 1500 and 1600. Mistake or replacement? By the time I check Feb 9 at 1947, 21675 is back to non-BS programming. BTW, some days after 2200 they run old-time-radio secular episodes (Hauser, OK)
