voice of russia's absence

I've been having a hard time receiving Voice of Russia's North American broadcasts around the 0200-0500 UTC timeframe lately. Here are the frequencies from primetimeshortwave.com:

0100-0200 UTC: 7250 / 9665 / 15555 / 15595 khz
0200-0300 UTC: 9665 / 9860 / 15555 / 15595 khz
0300-0400 UTC: 5990 / 9665 / 9860 / 15425 / 15555 / 15595 khz
0400-0500 UTC: 5990 / 9665 / 9860 / 15555 khz

Are any of you receiving Voice of Russia lately? If so, I'd be curious to know what they have been discussing. I miss it!

Hey Michael:
Thanks for visiting and for leaving your comments. I am very curious about your report that you're not receiving anything in the 9400-10000 khz range. Have you tried more than one radio? Is there a new source of interference in your listening location?

Glenn Hauser is a person who would be interested in receiving your report as well. You can find his contact info at www.worldofradio.com .

i have just become a blogger, somehow checked in with radio sweden, and then you folks came along. A very nice surprise. Yes, I am new to most of this. The things you are able to do with short wave radio sounds very exciting/interesting. Would you be able to give me one or two references to enable me to become a short wave radio operator, such as how to get started and what to avoid? thanks.

Thanks for reading. This weblog mostly focuses on listening to shortwave radio. Do you already have one, or did you listen to Radio Sweden some other way? I would recommend taking a look at my featured articles page - there's a link on the right side of my weblog layout to the featured articles page. If you're shopping for a shortwave radio, you can read my radio buying guide as an introduction to the types of radios available and the types of features at some of the different price points. From there, if you have more questions, you can leave another comment here and I'll try to help. Good luck!
