I had seen the 0300z entry in the schedule for ch292 beforehand. So I 
had already checked the situation at 0300z / 04.00CET on the 9670 kHz.
But, since there was no signal on various KIWI SDRs between Moscow and 
Kamschatka, not a trace of a transmitter carrier.

2.) An hour later, the situation as described by Glenn.
I was i.a. also back on the Novosibirsk SDR and saw another user from 
the USA, probably him.

3.) The midday broadcast from RNEI via ch292 also on 9670 kHz (on 
ordered 293° ===>   UK/IRL/US)   on yesterday, December 25th, at least 
The DRM QAM16 SNR (at the end of the show) reached a peak value of 17 dB 
in Carlow [IRL].
