firedrake logs, aug-sep 2012

Firedrake, that trusty source of smashing orchestral music from the far east, has turned up once again on my shortwave receivers. Here are some recent logs. Eton E5, indoors with random wire antenna. Although I could use the DX Listening Digest as a guide for recent Firedrake frequencies, I've decided to only use manual scanning for this set of logs. My usual range of manual scanning while generating these logs was 7 - 17 MHz.
