** CANADA. 1610, Oct 10 at 0634 UT, again at this hour YL in Luso Portuguese, mentions call CHHA in English pronunciation. Clearer with USB tuning, presumably due to relative ACI levels 1620 vis-Ã-vis 1600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, Oct 11 at 0100, RHC English is missing now at nominal start, so I guess it`s completely off as not heard for several nights after 0500 either. Ex-6165 not on either. Only other English, 6000 remains with OK signal; Spanish 6060 not very good & 5040 good. Absent 6145 also means there can be no leapfrog on 6230, shux (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 11650, Oct 11 at 0120, Chinese at S7-S4 with slight echo. NDXC/Aoki shows only thing is CRI in Chinese, 500 kW, 212 degrees from Urumqi, so not a jammer, and the echo should be about right for dual short/long path (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4054.988, Oct 11 at 0041, TGAV Radio Verdad must be back! S9 open carrier vs storm noise level a little higher. There`s lots of lightning over S/E Mexico and Guatemala itself, but in US none closer than Illinois or the TN-AL-MS tri-state area. Straining, I think there is a trace of modulation, but it`s useless. Later delayed into my inbox, I find this stamped 2339 UT Oct 10 in enlarged font but not in blue:

``RADIO VERDAD EN EL AIRE --- LES INFORMAMOS A TODOS QUE HOY A LAS 4:30 PM, HORA DE GUATEMALA [2230 UT Oct 10], LOGRAMOS SALIR AL AIRE, AUNQUE SEA CON MENOS AUDIO. AGRADECEREMOS A TODOS, ESPECIALMENTE A LOS DIEXISTAS, INFORMARNOS CÃMO ESTÃ LLEGANDO LA SEÃAL EN LOS 4055 KHZ. DIEXISTAS, DIVULGUEN LA INFORMACIÃN POR FAVOR. QUE DIOS LES BENDIGA. DR. ÃDGAR AMÃLCAR MADRID, RADIO VERDAD``

To which I replied:

Estimado Ãdgar, Sintonizo casi todas las noches a 4055 en espera de su renacer. Antes de recibir esta nota, estaba captando la seÃal en 4054.988 a las 0041 TU con nivel S9, contra ruido de tormentas cercanas un poco mÃs fuertes, pero casi inaudible el nivel de audio.

ÂEs el transmisor original, o de radioaficiÃn en su vez? ÂCon cuÃntos vatios? La potencia parece igual a la acostumbrada, pero no vale sin mucho mÃs audio. Saludos, Glenn Hauser, Oclajoma`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 11725, Oct 10 at 0616, RNZI is still on here instead of 9630, at poor level, yet the SSOB on 25m. It may not work so well for us now as in our summer. 9630 has a very poor signal as R. Aparecida has been re-uncovered. RNZI has made yet another schedule shakeup, eliminating 9630: 0359-0758 11725, 0759-1258 7425 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, Oct 11 at 0154, very poor carrier, which in evenings must be Station YHWH: Yes, I can barely make out the voice of Josiah, and still at 0220 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Oct 9 at 2016, typical Ungujan music as ZBC is reactivated after some weeks, as per numerous reports since October 7. Here it`s only S4 with deep fades to nothing. Has news in English some days at 1800-1810. Normal sign-off is 2100v, altho one report said as late as 2200. Look out for R. Transmundial, Brasil also on 11735 until 2100v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1030, Oct 11 at 0226 UT, good signal looping N/S or slightly clockwise from there, James Dobson program with 877 number, mentions `Family Talk` which is one of his numerous sub-shows.

Suspect 50 kW ND daytimer KCTA Corpus Christi TX, long after sunset, and even longer after WBZ sunset. Is it on his roster? Yes, but at another illegal time, presumably Central, no obstacle for gospel huxters above the Laws of Man!

Family Talk
http://drjamesdobson.org/Broadcasts/Stations
Corpus Christi KCTA-AM 1030 M-F 3:30 AM

Only other religious station on that bearing is 50/4 kW U4 WCTS Maplewood MN, but NOT on his list. Hoped for an hourbottom ID, but all I hear is a KAB/Ad Council PSA for recycling, then another g.h. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6130, Oct 11 at 0053, two very poor carriers making a low het with each other; 0100 I only hear one with talk too poor to copy. No Latin Americans known here, not even Cuban mixing products; NDXC/Aoki shows the only two 6130s at this hour are Tibet, 100 kW at 290 degrees from Lhasa, and Laos 50 KW ND. Certainly not a time I would expect to hear it; Vientiane sunrise today was 2302, almost two hours earlier, but conceivably a remnant, while Lhasa would still be good for grayline. As a matter of fact, Laos has been reported slightly off-frequency to low side, as Wolfgang logged these two but at an earlier hour, Laotian sunrise:

``LAOS / CHINA, 6129.964, LNR Vientiane, and co-channel equal signal level of S=9+5dB from 6130 kHz even from PBS Xizang Lhasa Tibet western China, at 2301 UT on Oct 2 [selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (Wolfgang BÃschel, Stuttgart, Germany, df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Oct 2, bclnews yg via DXLD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17900-USB, Oct 9 at 2018, 2-way in Spanish, one loud & clear, the other really broken up with squeaks & squeals (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0451 UT October 11
