** BANGLADESH. 15505, June 27 at 1359, BB IS is JBA and so is the timesignal ending at 1359:43 as Urdu is opening (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [and non]. Firedrake [non] hunt June 27 at 1344 found nothing 12-18 MHz except poor signal on 15570 with CNR1 hetting KBS 15575, but 15570 cut off at 1344:45*; there was another circa 15545 but it too went off before I could nail the exact frequency, and unlike 15570 it did have a het from V. of Tibet, via TAJIKISTAN. Aoki as of June 28 shows *jammed VOT on 15568 until 1340 switching to 15562; and on 15543 until 1345 switching to 15542.
Firedrake June 28 before 1300:
13795, very poor at 1252
Very poor propagation brings no CNR1 jammers, 12-18 MHz except:
13830, very poor at 1252

** CHINA [non?]. 21680, Thursday June 27 at 0518, JBA signal vs noise level, talk from algo. HFCC shows IBB TINIAN, 250 kW, 313 degrees in Cmn = Chinese Mandarin during this hour only and only on Thursdays and Fridays; what luck! Too weak to tell whether RFA or ChiCom jamming, but propagationally Tinian is much more likely here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 15630, June 27 at 0515, open carrier dead air, tho good signal from VOG, but modulation resumes at 0516. Others report lots of disruptions to SW transmissions, not just in modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 9526-, June 28 at 1210, no signal detected from VOI. Reception has been so poor for weeks that I have not even been trying for it, but apparently really off the air now. Atsunori Ishida, http://rri.jpn.org/ shows no logs of it June 18-23, but not updated since; on vacation?
Meanwhile, at 1256, the other RRI, domestic transmitter next to it in Cimanggis continues to be obviously on and propagating, despite stupidly sticking to 9680 with the China radio war and making a LAH with them, maybe 40 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1570, June 28 at 1150 UT, XERF concluding a mañanitas song mentioning San Juan, and starting ``servicio social`` notices of missing persons (extraviadas) with phone numbers on both sides of border, including toll-free 877s. I assume a lot of these are about illegal immigration attempts which may have gone bad; or successful ones with the personas in hiding.
We`re over the hump of earliest sunrises here in Enid, 1116 UT today, latening about a semiminute per day, reaching 1135 in a month, per
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. More sporadic E analog TV DX, June 27, UT:
1428 on 2, fade-in Azteca net-7 news grafix, at first video only
1434 on 2, full-screen INFO on one line, 7 below it; quite steady but weak; 1439 some audio begins to appear as MUF inches up by 4.5 MHz
1445 on 2, interview about Los Tigres de Monterrey. If still Azteca—7, no doubt XHTAU Tampico, which in the mornings relays Monterrey studio rather than México DF, per Oglethorpe; altho Monterrey has own ch 2 station and another Regiomontanan on 34 is relayed on 2 in Saltillo, all of which have been frequently seen here
1506 on 4, Televisa net-5 with bugs, in and out
1519 on 2, Televisa net-2 star bug in UR; and large circle bug in LL: I think that is for the Hoy (Today) show
1550 on 2, CCI between net-2 bug UR, and Televisa net-4 with f bug in LR; XHY?
1559 on 2, Televisa net-5 bug in LR with toon, CCI
Opening peters out afterwards (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, June 28 at 0059, R. Chaski carrier JBA on the FRG-7 as storm front is approaching here, until cut off at 0103:47.5* which is 5 seconds later than yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. I won another intricately decorated pouch for answering Voice of Turkey`s Question of the Month, received in the P-mail June 27. Similar, but different design from the previous one which is visible here:
The new one is here:
Also enclosed another coaster with diffraxion(?) overlay; and a pocket calendar card with this illustration, which I assume is NOT of the latest park demonstrations:
And the calendar itself is interesting in showing that certain month names in Turkish are cognate to ours, while others are different:
And organized so that the first day of week is Monday, like Christians
Meanwhile, the 1230 English broadcast on 15450 continues to be inaudible to JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, June 28, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1675 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-1 9479, Thursday June 27 at 2100.5; also on WWRB 5050, UT Friday June 28 at 0333, preceded by about a minute of silence as Dave was getting the computer playback going, which followed big band music fill. 5050 stayed on until end of WOR at 0402, then some open carrier.
Next: UT Saturday 0130v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB; Saturday 0630 & 1430 on HLR Germany 7265-CUSB; Saturday 1500 & 1730 on WRMI 9955; Saturday & Sunday 2329v on WTWW-2 9930; UT Sunday 0400.5 on WTWW-1 5830.
Also, Hamburger Lokalradio for the next four Sundays is testing 15785-CUSB with 1 kW from Göhren, Germany, and is very interested in reports even from outside Europe. This will include WORLD OF RADIO at 0630, 1030, 1430 and 1830 amid two-hour blox in English and German starting half an hour before those times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1440, June 28 at 1146 UT, KTNO, Metroplex TX with local news in Spanish and timececk 6:46, but at 1147 bringing up ``their correspondent in México``, from notisistema.com confirming what I was hearing previously here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
