Stewart MacKenzie: please stop forwarding my log reports to other individuals 
and lists, especially those where I have already posted them myself.

** ALBANIA. 7420, Dec 7 at 0230 check, R. Tirana`s only remaining English to 
NAm is on this frequency tonight and also announcing it (Glenn Haauser, OK, DX 

** BRAZIL. 4885, Dec 7 at 0625-0645, mostly music is poorly heard, but enough 
signal to audiblize it past the high local noise level as sometimes happens, 
presumed R. Clube do Par?, one of few known 24-hour Brazilians left on 60m. 
Trying BFO to help it along, I find the carrier is slightly unstable, hard to 
zero-beat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 7:
9200, very poor at 1427; no others by 1439 up to 19 MHz 

** CUBA [and non]. 5955, Dec 7 at 0622, RNW Dutch now via VATICAN during this 
first hour, audible with NO jamming for a change! Has the DentroCuban Jamming 
Command finally agreed that R. Rep?blica is gone from near this frequency? Time 
will tell. RHC still propagating extremely strongly on its 6 MHz frequencies. 

BTW, Aoki lists 5954 Rep?blica as a 600-watt non-direxional transmitter in 
Lim?n, Costa Rica, i.e. the former facility of long-gone R. Casino, an 
unwarranted assumption as ELCOR may have acquired the frequency-license only. 
And Aoki no longer has it on 9965.

9540, Dec 7 at 1425, RHC missing from this unneeded frequency, still going 
strong on 9850 and all the 25m channels. 13670, Dec 7 at 1433, is on, having 
been missing 24 hours earlier. There`s always something a-missing at RHC, an 
endless source of anomalies to monitor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 7220, Dec 7 at 0615, RFI news in English instead of Hausa, repeating 
headlines (called ``main points`` in Euro-parlance), then at 0616 instead of 
sports reports, calling in correspondent in Congo DR about delay in reporting 
elexion results. Meanwhile 7390 French service was en musique.

MUF was again quite lo tonite, nothing above 10 MHz and only a few weak sigs on 
9 MHz, such as Gabon 9580; none of the US signals were audible, not even 9330 
WBCQ. Meanwhile, WWV reported at 0600 the K-index was 0 and the SF for Dec 6 
was 154, no space weather storms, so you would expect better propagation. Must 
be winter-night doldrums setting in despite the figures. 

In Enid we have just passed our earliest sunset of 2316 UT, now starting to 
stay lighter later, but it will be another month before we surpass our latest 
sunrise of 1344 (Glenn Hauser, OK, Dec 7, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 9870, Dec 7 at 1414, AIR VBS military band is playing that march tune 
often heard; is it news theme? Well atop CCCCI from Xian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX 

** IRAN. 11860, Dec 7 at 1429 piano music, 1430 ID in Russian as GIRI, choral 
anthem; fair with flutter, 500 kW, 320 degrees from Sirjan, so also USward 

** TAIWAN [non]. 6875, Dec 7 at 0620, RTI via WYFR still in German, but instead 
of usual big signal, only poor; wonder if they have started aiming at Europe 
instead of Mexico, making the best of the wrong-language situation? Nearby 
Cubans on 49m were extremely strong as usual. But Tennesseans on 5755, 5890, 
5935 were also poor instead of strong, skipping long, I suppose (Glenn Hauser, 

** U S A. 7490, Tue Dec 6 at 2229, WBCQ starts playing `Frecuencia al D?a`, its 
only Spanish program which is also a DX program, as usually happens per 
schedule, rather than WORLD OF RADIO which unexpectedly appeared here last 
Tuesday. Expect WOR at its usual WBCQ time of 2230 Thursdays (Glenn Hauser, OK,

Last  week  Google  made a second  minor  change in their reader in less  3 
weeks   after 
their redesign,  which now obstructs copying - pasting  more than 3 sequential  
feeds ,thus 
making  personal mass news printing /off-computer  reading  nearly impossible . 
This makes 
their news reader only for  screen viewing 

I was  based  very much on this reader in order to  collect my personal news 
from more than 
70  sites every day  from  5 years ago, including some Dxnews  offered via the 
email lists  . 
That makes me  a disaster.... 
The solution is now very complex . I need more than 3 reader programs to 
collect this info 
regarding on the structure of the feeds,and this ahppens also wit the radio  
news i post 

The logs below  are based as with previous lists , on the latest BCDX and DXMIX
