1830- 5750- TAJIKISTAN- Tajik R.  1830  Here and on // 5800 with exotic
flute music and male vocals; man in Turkic language (no doubt Tajik or
Uzbek) at 1845, followed by woman at 1850. Resumed flute music, which
now sounded more Western (a la Zamfir), interspersed with comments by
man and woman. Both outlets off at 1900 as per sked. Weak/fair, with TV
oscillator birdies not helping reception. ---HILL, MA - USA, Nov. 14

1842- 6055- RWANDA- Radio Rwanda, Kigali   1842-1858   Male speaker in
French, frequent mention of Rwanda, "Boat on the River" by Boney M,

1915- 5951- YEMEN- Rep. of Yemen R.  1915-2210*  What I originally
thought might be Guyana here turns out to be a Middle Eastern station
with Arabic talk and vocal music typical of the region. Time pips are
given at 2030, but there is never any break on the hour. The most likely
candidate is Yemen's nominal 5950, seldom reported but still active per
overseas DXers. Although it's definitely not 9780v, both leave the air
within a few seconds of each other -- so a possibility is Sana'a with
two separate programs. What with the weak signal and splatter from
RFE/5955, it's been impossible to get anything resembling an ID. Once
WYFR comes on 5950 at 2200, all that's left of 5951 is a faint het
audible till 2210*.  ---HILL, MA - USA, Nov. 11+

1928- 5840- UNID- Unid  1928  On Nov. 11 and 12 only, high-energy man
and woman in Portuguese with pop vocals, rap crap, telephone interviews.
Long string of ads and/or promos just before 1930, then four high pips,
ID mentioning 24 hours, FM, and Africa; continued with more ads/promos
and several mentions of "Lisboa." Another ad string at 1945; cut off at
2000 in mid-sentence. Sounded much like the old VORGAN, but was not //
6220. Good signal with bright audio, but copy was hampered by loud
power-line noise. What makes this unusually baffling is that ever since
Nov. 12, the station here at *1900-2000* has been Polish R. in Russian ,
as totally different in content and sound from my unID as night is from
day. One possibility, unlikely as it might seem, is that Warsaw might
have been testing this transmitter for a few days using a signal from
some other source. Very strange.--- HILL, MA, USA

1942- 5060.2- UNID- Unid R.  1942  Somebody with Middle Eastern and
Balkan-sounding vocals segued till 2001, when audio was cut in mid-song
and the switch was pulled about 15 seconds later, leaving Tashkent in
the clear on 5060. ---HILL, MA - USA, Nov. 14

1946- 5060.2- UNID- Tashkent??, 1946-2001*, Nothing but mid-east type mx
w/wailing vcls right to abrupt s/off in mid-song. No anmnts. Tashkent is
sked here but the pgmming and freq doesn't sound quite like them.

2016- 7146.9- IRAQ- Mother of Battles R.  2016  Probably Baghdad

a faint het when rechecked just after 2100. Haven't noted this one for
perhaps a year or so:  recent reactivation? ---HILL, MA - USA, Nov. 15

2030- 6230-  GEORGIA- R. Georgia  *2030  After Tashkent s/off at 2024
and what seemed a gospel station closed at 2030, Tbilisi finally alone
on the channel opening Russian with several "Radiostantsiya Gruziya" IDs
and into news. Fuzzy audio characteristic of all Tbilisi transmitters
these days. This channel apparently replaces 11760. ---HILL, MA - USA,

2130- 7105- UZBEKISTAN- R Tashkent, IS 2130, then into English. News and
usual features with mostly woman announcers, music after 2145, frequent
Ids including address for reports at s/off 2159. Normally a morning
visitor here in NJ, this is a fairly decent signal on the high antenna
(must mean that it is arriving at a low angle). Wonder if this time slot
is new? Best tuned using a SSB filter to eliminate any USA radio amateur
packet and CW interference. At 2200, IS for Uzbek Radio and into unknown
language. ---SUNDSTROM,  NJ USA Nov 12

2150- 4777- GABON- RTV Gabonaise 11/10 2150 noted with African music and

sounding like "Veritas" and ment of "English broadcast" and wished
everyone "the very best". Canned anmnt by M beginning w/audience SFX and
echo: "...Liberian front, this is ? home of ? radio station...from our
studios in Monrovia Liberia on the beautiful west coast of Africa...".
Started Afro Reggae-like mx and suddenly off in mid-song. Decent signal

2357- 11940.4- CAMBODIA- National R. of Cambodia  2357  Carrier came on,
but then no audio whatsoever till 0030, when woman's voice could be only
faintly discerned. Too bad they had to pick this night for audio
problems, as the carrier was quite steady, without any of the choppy
flutter that's usually present. Signal must have been coming over a
skewed, rather than polar, path. ---HILL, MA - USA  Nov. 15-16
