** BRAZIL. 11780, July 1 at 0555, RNA/RNB is very distorted on fundamental, unlistenable. The 11708/11744/11816 cracking spurs are also audible but weaker than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 18990, July 1 at 1312, CNR1 jammer, poor-fair, matching schedule of RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, Wed and Sat at 13-14.
17705, July 1 at 1313, CNR1 jammer poorly mixing with Saudi Arabia if not intended target AIR India in Chinese until 1315
No out-of-band CNR1 jammers heard 12-18 MHz, just poorly on 15115, 15265, 11785 circa 1315 July 1. Propagation is still degraded. Of course some of them may not have cut on until a few minutes later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE. 13725, July 1 at *0559, RFI cuts on in French, 0600 switches to English.
13750, July 1 at 0610, something in Hausa, per HFCC RFI Issoudun daily at 0600-0630; I didn`t notice this yesterday while checking out NIGERIA [non] via same site, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, July 1 at 0342, Kurdish music on fair signal, ex-11510, as expected QSY for Denge Kurdistane, initial *0300 bihour via FRANCE. Not clear why the change. July 1 Aoki still has it on 11510, and on 11600 nothing but Sound of Hope relaying RFA and drawing ChiCom jamming, but none of that heard here at 1317, nor D. K. on either frequency, which was the usual situation via Bulgaria after 1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 9690-, July 1 at 0558, open carrier starts drumming, very good signal as VON Hausa is about to start; but no signal on formerly // 7255 or 7255 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA [non]. 13725, July 1 at *0600, good signal from Issoudun, FRANCE, cuts on just before cacophony of modulation starts like yesterday, sign-on in English of ``Nigerian Armed Forces Radio; we bring you news, views and comment on matters of the moment``, announcing frequencies as 11825 and 13775, I think. (Yesterday it sounded like 11625, and the accent still makes it hard to distinguish ``eight`` from ``six``.)
11825 also audible better than yesterday, poor level now, also in English, but NOT // or not synchronized with 13775. At 0604, 11825 is announcing a long text message number for listeners. I could not copy all the digits for sure, but something like 2308148366886. At 0606 announcement by YL on 13775; while 11825 is repeating the OM announcement about texting. At 0640 I awaken to hear on 13775 the same sign-on announcement where the OM announcer stumbles over the 13775 frequency mention, repeats it. In between it`s just music on these tests arranged by RMI for a `week` starting June 30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, July 1 at 1203, SIBC carrier still on and barely detectable. Ron Howard says it stayed on now with Cyclone Raquel warnings instead of relaying Wantok FM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5000, June 30 at 2357 UT, I`m monitoring WWV for the Leap Second; to my surprise, I was getting *no* signal vs local noise level on 10000 which normally would be best here at this daypart. A weak one on 15000, but 5000 is better tho also weak. I count the seconds between 2359 and 2400 --- yes, there are 61 of them! Mission accomplished. I understand there is a movement to eliminate leap seconds, instead gradually adjust the clox over time? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
