** BRAZIL. 11749 & 11811, Aug 6 at 0554 check, distorted spurs from 11780 RNA are audible but weak, having been inaudible at 0144. Looks like some progress is being made.
11780, Aug 7 at 0154 check I am not hearing any spurs, altho my household noise level has not been suppressed as much as possible.
11750 weak, and 11810 weaker, distorted RNA spurs still audible especially at modulation peaks of 11780, Aug 7 at 0524, but no further ones (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammers morning of August 6:
13530, August 6 at 1253, CNR1 jammer, fair-good with flutter; MUF about 14 MHz, nothing audible higher at this hour. It turns out this one is running a few seconds behind all the others then heard. 13530 also at 1337, good with flutter
12560, August 6 at 1255, CNR1 jammer, poor, ahead of 13530; 12560 is almost synch with 11785, echo apart, and off at 1300* after timesignal
12980, August 6 at 1255, CNR1 jammer, very poor, // 12560; 12980 also at 1335 August 6, now good level
13970, August 6 at 1338, CNR1 jammer, poor with het
14870, August 6 at 1338, CNR1 jammer, good with flutter
15115, 15195, 15265, August 6 at 1339, CNR1 jammers, fair, but MUF is about 16 MHz, nothing at all on 17 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [and non]. 13790, Aug 7 at 0529, poor signal in Chinese, could be either RFA via Saipan at 04-07, or CNR1 jamming.
11615, Aug 7 at 1358. Tone test goes to VOA Yankee-Doodle-Dandy formal sign-on from ``Washington DC``, very poor with flutter; 1400 maybe adding CNR1 jamming. This one is really via Tinang, Philippines at 14-15 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 11710, Aug 7 at 0154, R. Cairo is JBM with LRA het
12070, Aug 7 at 0154, R. Cairo very distorted but not spreading much
9315, Aug 7 at 0155, R. Cairo is fair with some modulation
9965, Aug 7 at 0155, R. Cairo, JBM with music, whine
13850, Aug 7 at 0230, R. Cairo, suppressed and distorted modulation
13850, Aug 7 at 0527, R. Cairo, now with talk breaking up

** GREECE. 9935, Aug 7 at 0156, ERTOpen is on but only fair signal compared to good // 9420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN [non]. 13786, Aug 7 at 0530, not much signal from VIRI Arabic on 13785 but the carrier/het is there, as it has been at other hours beyond the VIRI span 0530-1430; and also hearing similar pitches at various other spots on the 13 MHz band, so I must conclude it is of local origin and not jamming or their own transmitter problem; never mind my previous speculation, also on WOR 1733 that Israel might be jamming it, however apropos that might be. No one replied to my query whether anyone else was hearing it; a ``no`` would have sufficed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. 17675, Aug 7 at 0231, DRM from RNZI is not on, tho AM audible on 15720 as well as Australia on 17795, 17840; I had been hearing DRM during the previous hour on previous days, but not clear if it had been staying on until published start at 0250 or breaking (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA [and non]. 7325-7330-7335, Aug 7 at 0519, DRM noise, i.e. as scheduled, RRI French via Galbeni (followed by English at 0530 also in DRM but switching to Tiganeshti site, why? Both are for Europe but carrying on to NAm). Not to be confused with R. Andernach, Germany, already IDed on 7320-7325-7330 a trihour earlier.
BTW, Lou Johnson in Atlanta has been complaining about unscheduled QRDRM to WWCR on 9350 until 0000, sometimes audible after WWCR closes. Is that really DRM, and Andernach too? Andernach should at least register its transmissions within the SWBC bands even if the public is not privy to them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA [and non]. 1521, Aug 7 at 0333, het upon KOKC OKC, no doubt the 2-megawatt BSKSA heralding start of season?? Tnx to Brandon Jordan tip from Memphis, who was getting this and many other TA carriers above 1000 kHz during the previous hour, including 1215 UK, which I also detected in a quick check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1732 monitoring: confirmed on WRMI 9955, Wednesday August 6 at 1315, poor signal, but clear.
Also confirmed on WBCQ 7490 webcast, August 6 from 2100
WORLD OF RADIO 1733 monitoring: confirmed first airing on WRMI 9955, UT Thursday August 7 at 0330; sufficient signal, but the Cairene mess on 9965 is causing some second-adjacent channel interference. Also confirmed after 1230 UT Thursday August 7 on 9955, atop the CCCCI from France via Taiwan. Next:
Thursday 2100 on WBCQ 7490v
UT Friday 0326v on WWRB 3185
UT Saturday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI 9495 (probably 1732)
UT Sunday 0131 on KVOH 9975
UT Monday 0300v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2100 on WRMI 15770, etc.

** UZBEKISTAN. 9670, August 6 at 1308, very poor signal, much weaker than CRI Russian 9675, as I am rechecking for CVC The Voice Asia, believed to have shifted from 9660, where I am only hearing the China radio war.
9670, Aug 7 at 1244, poor signal in Asian language, presumed CVC The Voice Asia, ex-9660, as 9670 is an alternate frequency for this on same Tashkent parameters, 11-14 in Hindi; no ACI from 9675 CRI Russian before 1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
