I maybe got some news about MW in Russia (Moscow region).
There are 4 entries, 2 for Moscow and 2 for Noginsk (ногинск).

I don’t know what they exactly mean.
Noginsk is north of Elektrostal where another very old transmitter
was and it fits to the coordinates written in the document.
The transmitter in Noginsk is sometimes also referred as radio center
no. 9 (радиоцентр № 9) (that was Elektrostal), but is located different.
The antenna in Noginsk is almost new (as I know from 2006):
My language skills are too worse to understand what they’re talking, I
may find that out in some years.
As I know Noginsk got a new semiconductor based transmitter and has
been switched off in 2014.
The other location, Kurkino , fits to the other coordinates given.
It was already on air in 738 kHz, but for me it seems that this will be
switched to Noginsk.
I don’t know which location will be used.
Maybe our Russian users know about this topic? (Ed)
A minor G1-class geomagnetc storm is underway on Nov. 22nd as Earth passes through a fast-moving stream of solar wind. The gaseous material is flowing from a northern hole in the sun’s atmosphere. Arctic sky watchers should be alert for auroras especially during the hours around local midnight.

1170kHz 2CH (callsign) broadcasting as 1170 SEN Sydney (NOT as SENTrack as listed incorrectly in Dan’s active sheet) commenced using 7.5kW of power during the day only in July. The station is now trailing 10kW during the day (5kW night).
Also please note Crocmedia name was recently changed to Sports Entertainment Network.
The old ‘2CH’ music programming now only exists on DAB+ and as a Internet streaming radio station, owned by SEN.

Since the civil war began at the Tigray region of Ethiopia Voice of Tigray Revolution is off air on 5950 khz, but the transmitter on 1359 khz in Mekelle is on-air. I heard african music during local sunset under the mess of CNR and English stations, at the same time radio Dimtsi Hafash was audible on 840 kHz from Eritrea.
