Very bad propagation from America at night

Last several nights there was very bad propagation from America. The loudest station heard was 6090 Caribbean Beacon, on 9 and 11 MHz signals were very bad. Audible are 9675 Cancao Nova, 11710 RAE and several others. The surprise for me was 4840 WWCR with a nice signal. Hope propagation would be better later...
Interesting that in daytime propagation from America is very good on HF (like 21600 WHRI, 15825 WWCR and others).

Tonight logs will be posted a bit later! Many interesting stations from Asia and not only received.

Again about MVBR, RGI and EMR in 2012


So, yesterday I published such info on my blog:
Due to Technical reasons the last transmission from MVBR on 6140 KHz will be on
the 25th of December 2011.  MVBR on 9480 KHz will continue in 2012 as normal.

Today I asked in dxld yahoo groop is anybody knows any more info on this matter.
Mike Terry replied:
Hi
Tom has replied to me as follows:
 "Yes, MVBR and EMR via 1 KW. Radio Gloria via 1KW and Radio
700 on 6005 khz. There maybe extra low power relays added in 2012."
Mike

A PS from Tom:
 
"EMR will Transmit every 3rd Sunday in 2012 on 9480, with a
repeat on the 4th Sunday. We may do 2 hour programmes from time to
time."

So you can see that these stations again become DX for non-Europeans (here I receive 1kW 9480 well).

Рубрика "Вещая поверх границ" (Russian text!)

Хотелось бы напомнить о сущестовании рубрики "Вещая поверх границ" в
рамках "Портала о странах и народах мира", которую ведёт Максим
Истомин. Рубрика посвящена истории иновещания, пропагандистских
баталиях в эфире, прошлом и настоящем трансляций различных стран мира
на Россию и СССР, современном многоязычном некоммерческом спутниковом
и Интернет-вещании. Выпуски сопровождаются интересными фото- и
аудиоматериалами.

Имхо, ничего подобного в рунете на данный момент не существует.
Большое спасибо автору. Предлагаю владельцам сайтов или блогов
разместить ссылку на рубрику у себя
(http://www.portalostranah.ru/page.php?id=page4)

Темы выпусков:

20. История Ватиканского радио. <<Слушайте все народы!>>
19. Вещание, связанное с Монако, на карте мира и спутниковой карте

войны. Кто такие <<токийские розы>>, и джаз как разменная монета в
радиовойне Японии и США
8. <<Золотой голос>> русского вещания <<Радио Ватикан>> и <<Радио Рим>>
7. Говорит и показывает Париж, или современный пейзаж с французами и

B-11

Maybe, all of you know that tomorrow (30.10) the B-11 season starts. 
You can find the Aoki B-11 xlsx file here: http://www.m2.mediacat.ne.jp/~binews/bib11.zip
Info there isn't fully new, there are many A-11 schedules and also there are many mistakes. For example, they deleted ITU "ATN" and all broadcasts from Bonaire wrote under ITU "HOL". Also there is schedule of new station from Madagascar (built by KNLS), but this station is to open in Feb-Mar 2012. So, be careful using this schedule!

Reminder: do not forget to push your clock an hour earlier (if your country has summer/winter times).

Some bad news: today there were last broadcasts from tx sites Sines (POR), Trincomalee (CLN), Rampisham (G) and Mon Agel (MCO). (info from Alexander Diadischev from open-dx yg)
I hope in B-11 wouldn't be so many closures of radio stations and transmitter sites...

So, I wish you a good season, lot of DX and lot of QSLs!
73s!
