** BRAZIL. 9665.95v, Oct 9 at 0026, poor signal in Portuguese, as Voz MissionÃria continues to wander around. By 0536 next check it`s audibly wavering BFOly but still circa 9665.95v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 750, Oct 9 at 0558 UT thru houtop, classic rock in null of WSB, so roughly N/S, 0603 UT Geo ad, 0604 UT ID as `CK 750 Classic Hits``, i.e. CKJH, Melfort, Saskatchewan, 25/25 kW U4 (and in stereo per NRC AM Log). ND day, but the late Paul Swearingen`s NRC Pattern Book shows at night is supposed to be almost circular to north with a notch toward Atlanta (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, Oct 8 at 2125, RHC is S9 of dead air again, and also detectable on the parasitical 11830 & 11850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 15390, Oct 9 at 1405, very poor signal in unID language, but it can`t be REE, which starts at 1800, and weekends from 1400 uses 21620 instead. HFCC shows multilingual somethings, 250 kW, 85 degrees from MBR Nauen at 1330-1530 daily. NDXC Aoki reveals it`s GFA = Gospel for Asia, a.k.a. Athmeeya Yatra Radio; so exactly what occupies Monday at 1400-1415? Halam, also Tuesday. EiBi rosters the language thus:
``C-F Chin-Falam / Halam: Myanmar-Chin, Bangladesh, India (0.1m) [cfm]``

** KYRGYZSTAN. 4010.21, Oct 9 at 0020, JBA carrier, presumed Bishkek, along grayline, always off-frequency but less than before circa .23 or .22 as last month; could it be drifting steadily downward on the way to .00? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6770, Oct 9 at 0010, JBA carrier, presumed the old-time-radio museum, while there is no activity in the 6.9+/- pirate band. If you missed it, see DXLD 17-37 for background on this, not including location (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 42, Oct 8 around 1500 UT, KBZC-LD OKC is decoding with some regional tropo enhancement; also analog 48, KOCY-LP (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 15380, Oct 9 at 1326, BSKSA with Qur`an, amid horrible frying buzzroar again, S9+10 and also suffering splat from 15370 Cuba; off at 1405 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 17744.990, Oct 9 at 1359, S1 talk but with BFO I can tell the carrier is wobbling at approx. rate of 10 x per second. HFCC shows it`s BBCWS in Somali via DHA, 250 kW, daily at 1400-1500, 250 kW, 225 degrees (but on Saturdays the span may run from 1130 to 1600). This site is frequently if not always off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1898 monitoring: confirmed Sunday Oct 8 after 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.000v!-CUSB, good. confirmed UT Monday October 9 at 0305 on Area 51 webcast underway and also on WBCQ 5130.30, S9+10 until 0329:49, so started circa only 49 seconds late. Next airing UT Monday Oct 9, 0330 on WRMI 9955: JBA carrier but confirmed on webcast. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW

AND, as discovered last week by Harold Frodge, and now on the sked:
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW
Maybe I will have new 1899 ready by then, maybe not

AND, also added, by when 1899 will certainly be running this week:
Thu 2230 WRMI 5850 to NW
Thanks, Jeff! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 730, Oct 9 at 0605 UT, Augusta ad with 855-tollfree number; KLOE 730 ID and extended weather forecast, 0606 UT ``730 KLOE``, into talk show with YL, `America Tonight`, or ``ATN`` for short, previewing various topix including football. Guess what: KLOE, Goodland, NW corner of KS, 1 kW daytime is supposed to run 20 watts at night; now it`s dominant over everything, including 100 kW(?) XEX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 9 at 0035-0038, as DXers further east are reporting a good opening: 783-east (likely Mauritania), 756-seems southeast? (maybe 100 kW Nigeria, more like east), rest Europish: 1044-ENE, 1053-NE (2 carriers beating), 1215-NE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
