** ARGENTINA. 15344, June 8 at 2144, RAE must be on, as its off-frequency carrier is detectable, altho some have reported it missing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRALIA. 2485, June 9 at 1125, VL8K is barely audible, better than 2325 and of course weaker than 4835 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BURUNDI [non]. 15480, June 8 at 1818, attempting to hear Radio Publique Africaine, new target broadcast which started a week ago, as reported by Ivo Ivanov, but no signal at all in awful daytime propagation from Europe. This appears in HFCC registrations as
``15480 1800 1900 53NW ISS 250 145 0 217 1234567 010616 291016 D 17400 RunSwaFra F NEW MGB 16675``
which means the site is Issoudun, France, but the MGB means the frequency management organization for this entry is the Madagascar station --- the only HFCC entry for it in such a rôle (so why don`t they broadcast it themselves?). In Kirundi, Swahili and French.
Reception seems to be good in Europe. Patrick Robic, Austria, A-DX via Wolfgang Büschel reported June 5, `` Web: http://www.rpa.bi --- Radio Publique Africaine (RPA) mit dem Programm "Humura Burundi" in Vn zu hören um 1800 UTC auf 15480 kHz``
José Miguel Romero2, Spain posted a recording from June 6:
At 4 minutes into 6-minute clip, sounds like slogan ``La Voix de Sang-froid`` ??
From their website I gather that RPA has been around for a while with several FM frequencies inside Burundi; it apparently opposes the efforts of the present regime to stay in power.
Who are they?
Program grid as of 27 months ago included relays of VOA and DW.
RPA is in WRTH 2016 as one of the Other Stations in Burundi on FM, spelt ``Public`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1829, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 16100, June 9 at 1345, CNR1 jammer, at S6-S9; and 16300 much stronger S9 to S9+10, but not in synch, both vs unheard Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CUBA [non]; KURDISTAN [non]; TIBET [non]
** CUBA [non]. 6000, June 9 at 1157, no signal from RHC, scheduled 11-13 UT, while 5025 Rebelde is still audible. Instead on 6000 something Asian, which would be a non-jammer CNR1 from Beijing 572 site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ITALY. 13960-USB, June 8 at 1818, no signal from Marconi Radio International, very low-power station which has scheduled USB broadcasts on Wednesdays in June: 1730-1830 on 13960, 1915-2015 on 15070, 2045-2145 on 7700. Another check during the 15070 hour is unproductive. Publicized dates are June 8, 15, 22 and 30, i.e. the last one being Thursday instead of Wednesday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1829, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH. 3920, June 8 at 1128, JBA AM carrier, (if not a ham) presumed the KCBS 5 kW transmitter in Hyesan, which was inactive as of WRTH 2016, but reported to the DXLD yg by Eduard Korsakov, Moskva, at 1700 April 7 as presumed to be that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, June 9 at 1149, trying to hear Denge Kurdistanye, but only get Chinese past 1201 with CNR jingle. Last report on this from Ivo Ivanov was May 29 when he said the 0500-1300 segment via PRIDNESTROVYE was off the air between 0530 and 1230. Is it still normally operative daily at 03-05 via France, 05-13 Pridnestrovye, 13-17 Bulgaria, 17-21 Pridnestrovye, as in current Aoki?
As for Chinese on 11600, RTI is on here at 10-13, but not in Mandarin so not jammed; Sound of Hope could also be on 11600.225 thruout between 00 and 16 with RFA relays, drawing jamming onto 11600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MADAGASCAR. 17640, June 8 at 1819, MWV is still missing from this originally scheduled African Pathways Radio hour in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MALAYSIA. 11665, June 8 at 1235, no signal from RTM, probably off, while 9835 at 1238 is audible with music at S6-S9. Next day June 9 at 1148, 11665 is on with pop music, while 9835 is Qur`aning past 1200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 780, June 9 at 1133 UT, open carrier/dead air from KSPI Stillwater. In June & July, official sunrise for this 250-watt daytimer is 1115 UT, but programming doesn`t start until 1200 UT with local talkshow (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, June 9 at 1126, R. Madang is S2 with some music audible; 3325 is S4, maybe Bougainville; 3365 JBA carrier and also one on 3240 which is still mystifying. We are at our earliest sunrise now in Enid of 1113 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, June 8 at 0536, SIBC is on late again after nominal 0500*, talk at S4-S5, still at 0602 but music on this hourtop rather than news as at 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1829, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 17855, June 7 at 1939, no signal from REE which is supposed to start at 1800 weekdays. This North American beam must be off since // 17715 is weakly detectable, propagable, and also 15500. There is something on 17885, so could it be a mispunch? No, from 1930 that`s BBC Hausa via Ascension. Another try next day:
17855, June 8 at 1820, no signal, while 15500 and 17715 are JBA but no 15390, which is always weak but may also be AWOL. 2144 recheck, same situation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1829, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 15522, June 9 at 1342, very poor carrier. Any split frequency in this area has got to be Voice of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN, and indeed so listed by current Aoki at 1340-1400 in Chinese. No jammer carrier audible on 15520 or 15525. Next check at 1412, I find one on 15558, also listed as same, 1407-1430 in Tibetan, and there is also something on 15560, which would be co-channel jamming and/or VOT in Tibetan via Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, June 8 at 1822, WMLK is still AWOL awaiting repairs, as neighbor 9265 WINB is only JBA itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17775, June 8 at 1820, KVOH is still active here in weekday Spanish service, during hymn, but is now only poor at S5. Other frequency 9975, English evenings remains silent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1480, June 9 at 1143-1146+ UT, KBXD Dallas TX is *still* stunting with classic country segués, making ~208/minute SAH = 3.47 Hz with KQAM Wichita KS talker (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11415-USB, June 8 at 1237, presumed Indonesian QSO pirate net audible here poorly.
11435-USB, June 9 at 1151, pileup of Indonesian QSO pirates, some musical. Also one on 11410-USB and another on 11460-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. RF NTSC Channel A4, 67.25/71.75 MHz plus/minus 10 kHz, June 8 at 1530 UT bits of video joined by a bit of audio, pretty sure it`s Spanish. Most of the time I leave my analog TV on snowy channel 2, and the 6m map is now showing sporadic E up to 106 MHz, centered over Kentucky, but maybe something is attempting to skip in from Cuba or Latin America beyond. Otherwise, nothing analog on any channel 2-6, nor any FM DX here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
