ZIMBABWE (non) 12105 Radio Dialogue (Talata-Volondry) *1600-1610+ 6-8 Nov. With WTWW off somewhere, RD came in quite nicely with slogan IDs ("Radio Dialogue-Giving You A Voice" & "Radio Dialogue-With The Community At Heart") + M/W DJs (the guy is the same one from last year who really rolls his "r"s in Ndebele/Shona)..still gives SW freq. as 12115--sked is 18-1900 Zimbabwe time..also gives phone/SMS #s, FB/Twitter info + website: www.radiodialogue.com..decent signal & a treat to hear them again. (Dan Sheedy, Swami's Beach, CA PL380/6m X wire)
NIGERIA 15120 VON 1514-36, 1553-57* 7 Nov. "60 Minutes" news-magazine program w/ items concerning livestock improvement schemes, financial new, family planning meeting in Addis Ababa.."You are listening to "60 Minutes" from Voice of Nigeria, Lagos.." @ BOH & then news headlines & more rpts on wildlife management/anti-poaching programs..@ :53 finishing up sports & then "Today In History", drums sounder, recap of top stories, closing pgm ID, website: www.voiceofnigeria.org & email address, more close-down chat, drums & off..the sked 15-16 EG broadcast is irregular, usually starting well past TOH, but their audio isn't all hummy/buzzy like last year, so that's a plus. (Dan Sheedy, Swami's Beach, CA PL380/6m X wire)
CHINA 4940 VoS 1500-1506+ 9 Nov. Thanks to Ron Howard's tips/audio clips, finally heard the VoS 1/2-hour EG program "Focus on China"..many IDs ("Voice of Strait Broadcasting Station" among others), gives FM/AM freq. (666 on BCB) + website: www.vos.com.cn then news headlines & more in depth reports (Chinese high-speed rail, econ. rpt, etc)..a little noisy on 60M here this late, but signal quite readable & the program is enjoyable.

KIRIBATI 21310U T33A (Banaba Isl. DXpedtion) 0030 9 Nov. Heard calling CQ w/ no takers (for a short while) then working JK4USW (Shunan City, Yamaguchi) + the pile-up began. Banaba Isl. is the western-most island in the Kiribati chain &, I think, counts as a separate DXCC "entity". (Dan Sheedy, Encinitas, CA G5/6m X wire)
NORTHERN IRELAND 21264U GI4NFH/GI4RKC (ops Ray & Seamus, both in Lisburn, NI) heard @ 1530 on 8 Nov. & also logged MI0SDR (Derek) in Londonderry, NI a few kHz down during the same time period. (Dan Sheedy, Swami's Beach, CA G5/6m X wire)

(Dan Sheedy, Encinitas, CA PL380/6m X wire)
AUSTRALIA 21260U VK2FBRG (Barry in Port Macquarie, NSW) chatting with AI0L on 9 Nov. @ 0020..the 4-letter suffix is an example of an Australian "foundation licence"..(Dan Sheedy, Swami's Beach, CA G5/6m X wire)

INDIA (non) 6260 CVC (via Tashkent) 1410-1440 1 Nov. Hindi programme sked 14-15 with usual CVC-style relaxed chat/mx as previously heard on the CVC broadcasts from Zambia/Chile..occ. EG phrases in the mix + jingle @ :34 "the best of Asian music, right (here?) on CVC.."
PAKISTAN 15725/11530 RP 1424-1500+ 31 Oct. The new B13 QRG for RP snuck thru this morning, weak but audible with Urdu chat/mx, horn sounder + 3 pips @ TOH, "ye..Pakistan he.." ID over music bed, then (p) news headlines readby M/W w/ sounder between items...NHKWR/Radio Japan-15720 (Talata-Volondry) opening @ 1430 in Hindi doesn't help the 19M reception much..
KURDISTAN (non) 11510 Denge Kurdistan (Grigoriopol) 1408-1500+ 1 Nov. Back safely here after sneaking away to 11600 for a few days..Kurdish chat/mx with occ. IADs..TOH brought horns/flutes sounder & "radyo..Denge Kurdistaniya..", another sounder, pips & W with another ID + maybe website info..(p) news headlines after 1500--if they switch from Grigoriopol to Kostinbrod @ 1500, I couldn't tell by the signal--no change in strength or break in transmission..
ZIMBABWE (non) 12105 Radio Dialogue (Talata-Volondry) *1600-05 6 Nov. WTWW apparently not on yet, leaving RD popping on @ TOH w/ "Radio Dialogue..giving you a voice" & sked of 18-19 hours (Zimbabwe is UT+2) on 12115 (sic) kHz, teaser for upcoming news bulletin, then phone/SMS #s, reggae bridge & website/email/Facebook/Twitter info, more reggae & opening news with "accurate &, more important, relevant"..since WTWW is supposed to have this freq. all-day/night for B13, it's nice to know they're occ. spacing out in Lebanon, TN & allowing RD to slide in..
CHINA 6080 Hulun Buir PBS (Hailar) (tent.) 1330-1405+ 23-31 Oct. Possibly this is HB PBS with Mongolian pgmme of local music (droning vocals + those neat MNG horns) & occasionally poetry/story readings (24, 30 Oct.)..maybe 5+1 @ TOH + ululating CH tune before "ID" by W, but difficult to tell cuz RTI/Firedrake open up @ 1400 on 6075 giving 6080 ultra-nasty ACI..Aoki has CNR1 (Geermu) here, also & heard occasionally u/ Hulun Buir (CNR1 //7305/9825, etc)
INDONESIA 3325 RRI-Palangkaraya 1400+ 21, 23-26 Oct. Don't know when it started, but they've been running an "IS" sort of tune (usually 3x) & 6+1 pips just after the RRI-P net ID & just before the local RRI-P ID & "warta berita lokal" for Palangkaraya/Kalimantan Tengah..(Dan Sheedy, Swami's Beach, CA G5/6m X wire)
NORTH AMERICA 3235 R/S Y-H-W-H 0131, 0247+ 26 Oct. Thanks to Ron Howard's tip, found that mellow-voiced guy with the same anti-whoever drone..not so good as WWCR-3215, but better (& more fun) than WWRB-3185. (Dan Sheedy, Encinitas, CA G5/6m X wire)

ITALY (non) 15190 Radio Santec/"Voz de Fulano de Tal"(via IRRS: Tiganeshti? Kostinbrod?) *1458-1600* 20/28 Oct. SU-only broadcast is always entertaining--Santec is a long relaxing chat by Gabriele, closing around 1527..then IRRS runs Motown/EG ads 'til closing info @ :30, then back with new programme (20 Oct. it was some very relaxing AR/Sudanese chat/sermon w/ "Music From The Hearts Of Space" style background..& Kenny Rogers' "You Decorated My Life" to lead into IRRS close-down info--the 27th brought a repeat of "The California Report" + NPR news from KQED (from Sept. 30th) 'til 1600 & IRRS' closing ID..)--excuse the "Voz de Fulano de Tal" mention above--since I never know what programme is going to be on @ 1530, it seemed a good idea to call it "Voice of Somebody" (Dan Sheedy, Swami's Beach, CA G5/6m X wire)
THAILAND 9390 HSK9 1420-1430* 29 Oct. Here for B13 with good signal & "UN Calling Asia", "Information Thailand", & "Take On Thailand"--off mid-chat during "Take On Thailand". (Dan Sheedy, Swami's Beach, CA G5/6m X wire)
