** CHINA. 17705, June 10 at 1308, Chinese opera on CNR1 (not Firedragon since there is vocalizing), // much stronger 15040. Both are jamming All India Radio`s only Chinese broadcast, 1145-1315. Saudi Arabia is also on 17705 at 1155-1457, and normally the signal heard here, but no sign of India or BSKSA now; maybe after 1315. These are only two frequencies listed for AIR in Chinese; if there were a third, it too would be jammed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13660, June 10 at 1312, RHC at S8-S9, leapfrog of 13740 over 13700, but no spurblobs out of 13700 today. Without embargo, something is always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 11830, Sunday June 10 at 0615, S7-S4 conversation in English about France, i.e. RFI`s only remaining English hour, via Issoudun to Africa, now propagating in summer conditions. One should especially try to listen on Fridays circa 0615 for listener contact show `Sound Kitchen` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 13580, June 10 at 0613, conversation in English, S7-S4 with deep fades, the OSOB. NDXC/Aoki shows BBCWS in English via Talata at 06-08 (following 05-06 via UAE and 04-05 via Oman) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 9370, June 10 at 1341 and 1710, still no WWRB with Radio Munansi. This could be another weekend off for maintenance, back next week? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9455, still not being heard from WRMI, but June 10 at 1340 a JBA carrier when two other stations are competing: Bangladesh in Nepali until 1345, and Furusato no Kaze, Taiwan from 1330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 15809.941, June 10 at 0604, WTWW-3 is on and propagating at S9+10! Tnx to sporadic E MUF of at least 16 MHz in the nightmiddle, if not to VHF, and // 5085 WTWW-2 which is S9+40. Music filler during ToH break in strange new talkshow, `Southern Talk at Midnight`, which resumes at 0606 on topic of satanic messages in songs played backwards, geez, with plenty of examples past 0623 doze.

It`s the 19m OSOB, except for a JBA signal on 15160 which per NDXC/Aoki is CRI in Chinese from Jinhua site. Still unknown how long the WTWW show lasts, but apparently 15810 not on all night, as nothing by 1240 check --- I think, altho neighbor 15825 achieves only a JBA carrier at this time.

15810-, by 1710 June 10, is back on, inbooming at S9+20, and now // WTWW-1, 9475 SFAW (and 15825 neighbor WWCR is equally S9+20. Now there is an extensive sporadic E opening, into VHF, but no FM DX heard here after 1700). By 1902, 15810- is off again, unlike 15825 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
