GREECE. 9420, June 14 at 0516, VOG is still on, and back to Greek music, at least for the moment; at 0521 checking 15630, now talk; both fair signals. There have been reports that the SW service, unlike the domestic services of ERT, have been ``spared the chop`` but it`s not clear whether this is a deliberate government policy or only from observations that the SW frequencies are still running, which could be just due to lack of control by the authorities.

** BANGLADESH. 15505, June 13, Bangladesh Betar carrier from *1355:45, 1356:54 tone starts, 1358:40 tone off and hum on, 1358:45 IS plays thrice, 1400:03 timesignal ends and opening Urdu; very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

 PERU. 5980, June 13 at 0100, R. Chaski carrier stays on until 0102:28.5* which is six seconds later than yesterday`s four seconds, maintaining an average of five (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TUNISIA [and non]. 17735, June 13 at 0512, open carrier; I can only assume it`s IWT which last time heard went off before 0500 when 7275 was starting up. Checking 7275 now, it`s audible poorly including modulation. 16m is certainly open as far as Wulumuchi in German on 17820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, June 8 at 0056, WWRB with that preacher whose screams like tics surpass the level of self-imposed distortion; unlike 24 hours earlier, no // on 3215 is on (nor 3195), but BS is already on 3185 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

 GUATEMALA. 4055, June 7 at 0457, TGAV is still on with hymns in Spanish; no word yet about their endangered license renewal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST

BRAZIL – 6104.79v-.76 Radio Cultura Filadelfia, Foz do Iguacu, rarely heard station noted several mornings this week, appears to be nominal *0945.   Very short reception window, as signal tends to peak before 1000 and then totally fade out by 1005-1010.  First hrd 6/3 at 0956 when tuning by,  signal strong enough to stop me in my tracks --  nice ZY sertanejo mx w/accordion and strummed acoustic guitar.  Canned ID PP anmt including fqys by OM and two time tones at the hour, then into PP religious inspirational pgm w/OM talking over musical bridges.   Faded into the mud soon thereafter.  Noted next day *0943 on 6/4, with technician seeming to just throw the xmtr switch and joining programming in midstream, with enthusiastic PP preacher and, again, sertanejo mx to ToH.    At 0958 began sequence of multiple IDs in both formats as “Radio Cultura Filadelfia” and “Radio Filadelfia”.  An inspirational morning religious show daily at 1000.  On 6/5, only an open carrier noted signing on at *0946 but couldn’t raise sufficient audio this morning.   Also found webstream running in parallel, with only a few seconds lag behind the SW fqy.   Big thanks to DXers Carlos Goncalves and Dave Valko for their assistance in pulling that initial ID from my recording of  the  6/3 reception.   ( Perry, Illinois)

CHINA/ TIBET – 7450 PBS Xizang, Lhasa, fair signal 6/2 1140-1232 with news/comment  program in CC presented by OM and YL in dialogue with Chinese orchestral mx bridges.   Program change at top of hour.   This one seems to show up only very erratically on this fqy.  (Perry, Illinois)

TAIWAN – 11549.84, Yuye Guangpo Diantai, Yuye Fishery Station, noted 5/22 with the Wednesday shortwave xmsn, *0859 with IS and YL, into 0900 programming with chantlike CC mx.  Mx and talks to abrupt carrier cut at 0928 and then back 10 seconds later. 0929 tuning signal again and YL ID, with program resuming.  Nice, modern Chinese vocals, OM and YL discussions and temporary carrier cut at 0941.  End of programming at 0958* with carrier cut mid-song.  A fun logging!  (Perry, Illinois)

MYANMAR  – 9730.83v-.86, Myanma Radio, presumed relaying Padauk Myay FM and running well past schedule, noted several recent mornings 1045-1135+ time frame.   Fades in and peaks around 1115 here.  Rather  nondescript programming, OM and YL talks in unid lang, orchestral music bursts, etc.  (Perry, Illinois)

THAILAND – 9390 Radio Thailand World Service hrd  6/1 *1200 with bells and chimes, good signal, English ID at s/on into Malay service to 1215*.  Back at *1230 for EE service, but change in beam resulted in poorer reception.  Many mornings.    (Perry, Illinois)

BRAZIL – 4774.99, Radio Difusora de Congonhas, 5/15 at 0023-0055*, an old friend station, reactivated, program of PP ballads with religious anmts and comments, etc.  At 0049 started the day’s shutdown sequence, contact info anmts including internet ( “w-w-w . . .” . ) At 0051, went into  “Oracion Final”  followed by a hymn accompanied by piano and then abruptly pulled the plug at 0055*.   Good signal and only light QRM, main problem the incessant static crashes from summer t-storms.  (Perry, Illinois)
