Re Albania CRI European relay site Cerrik broadcasts..

I don't believe that the Cerrik relay is on air again y e t !
These ADDITIONAL SCHEDULE outlets originate NOT FROM ALBANIA at present.

In past 14 days !!
I also observed these additional French (and others) on 7360 and 7385 kHz
from MAINLAND CHINA bcast center sites, propagate far away from eastern Asia
bcast center, according of Kiwi-Net direction finding TDoA Extension, not
from Kashgar, nor Urumqui in western China, <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

b u t C E N T E R E D o r i g i n a t e and propagate WELL from big
Beijing transmission site, CHN_Beijing Matoucun/Madicun, HuoxianTown,
Tongzhou_SW 150/350/500kW 33ant_12x100kW Beijing #572 site at 39 44 54 N
116 48 41 E

and likely also one ... two other additional bcasts more from either Xian
#925 site at G.C. 110degr East

or Shijiazhuang site near CHN_Shijiazhuang Huikou. Pingshan County, Station
#723 at G.C 114degr East location

7360 kHz in Western Europe S=9+10dB like at same time: Xian on 7285 and 7435
kHz.

7385 kHz in Western Europe S=9+5dB from Beijing site, like Shijiazhuang also
this level on 7255 kHz.

The CRI Kashgar outlets are much stronger - than Beijing / Xian - at
S=9+30dB level tonight, like Italian 7340 kHz, German 7395 kHz.


Okay, yes the additional 09-13 UT bcasts originate either from Urumqi or
Kashgar sites in western China on the Russia/Kazakhstan/Kyrghyz border area.

73 wolfie df5sx

ps. 15-23 UT additional bcasts need further more monitoring observation now.
