claim about this.(Gabriel Ivan Barrera, Argentina)

BELGIUM - Since I missed RVI's Radio World Sunday at 1237 on 15545, I
searched the RVI site where scripts of that have been posted, with
little publicity. There's nothing about it on the homepage of vrt, <
http://www.vrt.be > From there, you click on the RVI logo but still find
no direct link to it. Finally I found it under rvi rather than vrt: <
http://www.rvi.be/uk/hoeontvang/world/index.htm > but it was the Feb 8,
1998 script, after which they apparently quite posting them. BTW, I
object to "uk" being in the URL; in Europe, shorthand for "English
language" is far too often "uk" or even "gb" (Glenn Hauser, OK, R.I.B./
GH SW/DX Report 98-20, April 23)

BELGIUM - On at least two occasions, VRT in Dutch at 1800 has been heard
on 15720 instead of scheduled Wavre 15270, recurring punch-up error?

CANADA - Checking RCI for Inside Sports/Madly Off in All Direxions
Monday 1207-1300 on 9640, 11855, 13650, found instead THIS MORNING,
Monday, first hour, apparently live from the original Atlantic Zone
feed! And the second hour followed after RCI news at 1300; but no third
hour. So it seems RCI has finally decided to run TM live rather than As
It Happens and condensed TM the next day, but this also knocks out MOAID
repeat; contrary to published summer sked just received (Glenn Hauser,
OK, April 20/ GH SW/DX Report 98-20, April 23)

COSTA RICA/ECUADOR- HCJB has started using 21470 in Czech to Europe at
1830-1900, carrier on as early as 1814, interfering with RFPI on 21465+;
on Friday April 17 only, so far, HCJB expanded this to 2000 with
additional European languages. I' ve been corresponding with HCJB's
frequency manager, asking them  to shift to any one of numerous open
channels at this time on the 13 mb, or at least to 21475, but they
refuse to budge, insisting that they have prior rights to 21470, it
doesn't really bother 21465, and if RFPI has a problem, it should move.
HCJB has much more frequency flexibility than RFPI, as James Latham
explained on Mailbag, with the antenna tuning limited to about 21450 to
21500; until now 21465 has been a nice clear frequency for RFPI; BBC
Cyprus is on 21470 earlier in the day, but not much of a problem in NAm
compared to HCJB. RFPI is considering what to do next (Glenn Hauser,
April 20/ GH SW/DX Report 98-20, April 23)

CROATIA - Prezados Radioescutas, Eu sintonizara, na semana passada, uma
emissao em espanhol em 9.925 kHz, por volta de 0:00 UTC, com bom sinal,
que inicialmente pensei se tratar de uma emissao da Voz da Russia. Mas
desconfiei, pela voz da locutora, e pelo fato de a frequencia, segundo o
WRTH'97, ser utilizada apenas pela Radio Vlaanderen. Entao, por volta
das 0:05 UTC, a emissao em espanhol terminou, com a locutora
identificando-a como sendo da Radio Nacional da Croacia. Nos dias
seguintes, sintonizei a mesma frequencia outras vezes, para obter mais
detalhes desta emissao em espanhol da Radio Croacia, que eu desconhecia
existir (deve ter-se iniciado em abril, pois na homepage da emissora, em
<http://www.hrt.hr>, nao hah nenhuma mencao a qualquer emissao em
espanhol, tampouco no WRTH'97). Eu mesmo nunca ouvira falar de emissoes
em espanhol da Radio Croacia. Nao sei se os radioescutas da lista jah
sabiam disso, eu soh agora eh que soube. Ah sim, os detalhes da emissao
em espanhol: a Radio Nacional da Croacia (Hrvatski Radio) transmite
diariamente na frequencia de 9.925 kHz (30 metros) `as 23:00 UTC, com
reprise `as 0:00 UTC, um boletim de noticias em  espanhol com duracao
aproximada de cinco minutos. Estas emissoes em espanhol estao inseridas
na emissao em croata da emissora para a America do Sul, entre 23:00 e
01:00 UTC. (Lenildo C. Silva, Brazil via Elmer David Escoto, HONDURAS)
---- Amigos:  Un saludo. Esta emisión en español no es nueva, yo la
había sintonizado hace algún tiempo, y me dejó con la boca abierta, pues
nadie había sintonizado ésta emisora en Español recientemente.
Efectivamente, Croacia emite en español un boletín de noticias de 4 ó 5
minutos de duración. Es una buena oportunidad para conseguir otra QSL!
Saludos y 73 a todos. (Elmer David Escoto, HONDURAS)

KOREA, NORTH - R. Pyongyang, 2100 English to Europe on new 9335. Strong
signal in London but modulation almost as distorted as the ideology!
They have dropped "The Song of General Kim Il Sung" at the beginning of
transmission. Such changes usually have a political meaning. But the
"news" doesn't seem to have changed much -- the top story this week
being the 85th birth anniversary of the late "Great Leader" and the fact
that people throughout
the world have been holding meetings to mark the earth-shattering event
(Roger Tidy, England, April 21 via Hauser/ GH SW/DX Report 98-20, April

MADAGASCAR -  Adventist World Radio has begun transmitting from the
Radio Netherlands relay station at Talata-Volondry via a 7.5 kw
transmitter on 3215 kHz.  They are presently broadcasting at 0300-0330
and 1530-1600 UTC in the Malagasy language.  In North America, a 7.5 kw
signal from Madagascar is good DX.  Unfortunately, reception at the
otherwise feasible hour of 0300 UTC is almost impossible due to the very
strong signal from WWCR in Nashville, Tennessee, which uses the
frequency at that time. There is good news, however.  WWCR plans to
vacate the frequency for a half hour on two days for the specific
purpose of giving DXers a better chance to hear AWR-Madagascar.  WWCR
will turn off its transmitter on 3215 kHz. from 0300 to 0330 UTC on
Sunday, May 3, and again at the same time on Sunday, May 10, 1998. 
(Those are UTC dates, corresponding to Saturday night in North
America.)  Some traces of the AWR signal have been heard behind WWCR at
0300-0330 UTC in North America, so the chances of hearing AWR while WWCR
is off the air seem good.  For late information about this event, check
the "Ask WWCR" program that will be broadcast during the period April
24-May 7.  According to the WWCR website <http://www.wwcr.com/> the
program is broadcast as follows (times adjusted for U.S. summer time): 
Friday at 2000 UTC on 15685, Saturday at 0915 on 5070 and 2030 on 12160,
and Monday at 0430 on 5070 and 2100 on 9475.  It can also be heard via
RealAudio or True Speech on the WWCR website. Many thanks to WWCR for
their cooperation in this DX venture, specifically to George McClintock,
General Manager, and Adam W. Lock, Sr., Head of Operations.  If you
would like to express your thanks to them directly, you can contact them
at WWCR@xxxxxxx, or WWCR International, 1300 WWCR Avenue, Nashville, TN
37218, USA.  (Jerry Berg, MA, USA)

MADAGASCAR - WWCR is planning to shut down its 3215 transmitter UT Sun
May 3 and 10 at 0300-0330 so that it will be easier to hear the new AWR
transmission here. At least I think that is what was meant by "May 2 and
9". Don't expect something like this very often, but it happens to be
possible in this case, and George McClintock is interested in tropical
DX himself (Ask WWCR #38 via Glenn Hauser/ GH SW/DX Report 98-20, April

MADAGASCAR - 3287.7  Radio Madagasikara, Antanarivo  my tentative log of
April 12 is probably substantiated by Mahendra Vaghjee's report,
originating in DX Window #111 and NU #1471 to the effect that this
longtime 90mb freq  has also been hrd during local evenings with 5010
[ie. 5009.6] and 6135 being off-air since April 1st. Per Vaghjee's note
of 7155 & 9690 being active at 0500, I checked 7155 on April 13, found
the freq open prior to 0500, at which point a moderate carrier appeared
but too weak for audio  2 hrs past xmtr SR but this might have been
them. (Clark, Ontario, Canada)

MEXICO - Radio Educacion, Mexico was announcing last week that they're
using 5 kW on shortwave, "soon to be increased to 10 kW." (Al Quaglieri,

UKOGBANI - Once again Merlin/BBC can't get their act together on
17840--Saturday April 18 at 1712 check, there was a varying subaudible
heterodyne indicating two transmitters on the frequency, and a slight
audio reverb--fortunately, not an echo making listening impossible.
Apparently Antigua did not turn off their transmitter at 1700 when RCI
takes over. Or, I hope some ill-informed planner at BBC doesn't think a
deliberate overlap is a good idea (Glenn Hauser, OK/ GH SW/DX Report
