Radio New Zealand and Radio Free Asia

Today's additions to the logbook are four shortwave broadcasters:
  • Radio New Zealand International on 11725 kHz at 0550-0603 UTC  broadcasting in English from the transmitter site at Rangitaiki, New Zealand. Signal was fair to good. 100 kW. Radio drama, music by Neil Young. ID on hour, and then New Zealand news and weather. Relog on this frequency.
  • WWCR from Nashville, TN, USA, on 12160 kHz at 1725-1744 UTC in English with excellent signal. Religious preaching. Relog of station but new frequency.
  • WTWW in Lebanon, TN, USA, on 12105 kHz in French at 1745-1815 UTC. Excellent signal. Religious sermon. 100 kW. Relog but new frequency.
  • Tentative logging of Radio Free Asia at 2123 UTC on 11945 kHz in Chinese with fair signal broadcasting from Dushanbe-Orzu, Tajikistan. No ID heard. Fluttery signal typical of signal passing through auroral region so I presume it's from the other side of the planet. Short-wave.info lists R. Free Asia on here at this time in Chinese. That's the tentative ID.
