LIBYA  Ein schönes klar gesprochenes Hörspiel-Radioplay in excellenter
professioneller Audioqualität hörte ich um 0045 UT am Dienstag 20. Oktober
im remote Netz in
Zakynthos Griechenland und in Kalabrien Süditalien.
Genau auf 1053.006 kHz,
und der Iraner auf exakt 1053.000 kHz.

SYRIA (presumed or non): Observations in period 5-12 October 2015 with tube
receiver and 1x1 loop antenna on eastern located slope and on Sony ICF2001D
with rod antenna:

at 0000-0300 UT
on  990 Radio Sawa Cyprus in Arabic plus noise jamming;
on 1431 Radio Sawa Djibouti in Arabic plus bubble jamming ;
on 1548 under Radio Gold, Radio Sawa Kuwait plus police alarm siren jamming;

at 0250-0330
on  630 under Romania, Turkey in Arabic plus noise jamming;
on 1062 Turkey in Kurdish plus motor boat jamming.

The primitive loop antenna gives Syria-Lebanon-Israel for all jammings.

Or they are some intermodulated sound on both receivers?
As usual there is Iran jamming (irregulary) on 1575 kHz.

GREECE   The following ERT medium wave stations are now on the air:
729 kHz Athens    150 kW     1314 kHz Tripolis 10 kW
1404 kHz Komotini 100 kW     1512 kHz Chania (Crete) 100 kW

All these stations are on air with ERA 1. But note that frequencies are
sometimes off air without notice.

The active state MW transmitters heard in Sofia Bulgaria now are 729 kHz
(Athens) with ERT1, 1404 kHz (Comotini) and 1512 kHz (Crete). Both 1404 and
1512 kHz relay different programmes like ERT1, ERT2, ERA Sport or Cosmos,
it's impossible to work out a schedule.

GREECE   On Oct 19 at 2340-2400 UT noted mostly Greek music programs on

FRANCE  162 kHz LW usual off Tuesday night 0005-0358 UT, but empty channel

LUXEMBOURG   234  RTL noted on rather low signal level in 23-24 UT slot
tonight Oct 19, heard in Sicily and Greece remote units, so I guess
decreased power on nighttime these days from Luxembourg.

I guess never 1500 kW at night anymore.
RTL MW 1440 kHz will be ceased MW sce for ever on Dec 31, 2015.

UNIDENTIFIED   When checked Algerian channels of Bechar 576 and Oulet Fayet
891 kHz, both seemingly STILL off due of refurbishing work by Transradio
Berlin TX and Ampegon Schifferstadt Germany antenna building team.

891  Heard an Arabic HQ prayer instead - from Sudan?, but distorted AM
signal like FM Azeri 9677 SW, had no carrier visible on screen. 0015 UT
Tuesday UT.
