** CHINA. 9675, Dec 15 at 0631, M&W in Chinese, sounders. Nothing in HFCC, but Aoki has CNR1 at 2300-1000, 100 kW, 37 degrees USward from Beijing 572 site, and get this: it`s NOT jamming anything!!! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9775, Dec 15 at 1345, R. Free Chosun`s romantic musical prélude in English is on again, same songs for fourth day in a row, YM & YL duet, ``We`ll go thru life together``; 1357 ``At Seventeen``. Good signal comparable to 9800 VOA Korean Tinang (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11510-, Dec 15 at 1425, Denge Kurdistan, fair with music, ululating, and usual IADs; presumed PRIDNESTROVYE site at this hour. Frequency is slightly on lo side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5950, Dec 15 at 1337, RNZI is in well, interviewing a PhD in Maori studies, while missing 23 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9700, Dec 15 at 0618, VOT good signal with Turkish talk and music; one of best signals on band, besides 9650 DRM from Romania; no signal from 9420 Greece; no 9955 WRMI, but 9330 WBCQ, strange conditions. At 0632 TRT also on much weaker // 9820, as to be expected with only 250 kW, 138 degrees from Emirler, while 9700 is 500 kW, 310 degrees USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1699 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-1, 5830, UT Sunday Dec 15 at 0500:53, very good signal. Next: Tuesday 1200 on WRMI, 9955; Wednesday 0730 & 1530 on HLR, 7265-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17515, Dec 15 at 1349, 1 kHz tone test, poor with flutter, off at 1353.

21570, Dec 15 at 1434, same 1 kHz tone test, fair with flutter until 1458*.

Are these sporadic tests again of some new site or transmitters in the Middle East? HFCC on 21570 lists Spain at 08-17, but it`s certainly wooden, and nothing else after Romania at 12-13. 17515, nothing before Nauen at 16-1930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
