** CHINA. 7435, Nov 10 at 1408, Russian from CRI vs pulse jamming from Cuba against no Radio MartÃ, Commies vs Commies! Aoki/NDXC shows site Shijiazhuang, 500 kW, 37 degrees toward DVR, thus also USward; yet also shows CRI Nepali, westward from Kunming. And, even more Commies, Vietnam HS program 1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9570, Nov 10 at 1414, S9+20 open carrier, got to be CRI relay transmitter, still on after 1400* but this does not prevent the modulated CRI English relay to be underway from another transmitter on next frequency from *1400, 15700, S9+30. Maybe a trace of modulation on 9570, not enough to make a match (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 9 at 2252, RHC on with English translation of hoary old FCR speech; was not on a few minutes earlier, as English on this frequency has already moved to 0000 UT from 2300 --- but apparently studio is feeding English out during the 22 UT hour: didn`t get the message? Somewhat distorted, on to 2253 guitar and piano music, feature about El Morro castle. 11880 is to be replaced by 9720 officially from Nov 12: French 23, English 00 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6945-USB, Nov 9 at 2249, pirate music at S9. Only one other log of this here and also unID:

** OKLAHOMA. 1419.61 & 1360.39 approx., Nov 9 at 2258, the KCRC 1390 wavering spurs measured about here at the moment with sportstalk. It`s 1 kW U3 = three-towers-in-a-row direxional same day and night; somewhat oval with more to the west than elsewhere.
FCC says ``KCRC's first license was granted 08-19-1926`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 5980, Nov 9 at 2245, checking for any JBA carrier this early from R. Chaski, PerÃ, during one-hour gap of 5980 usage by major broadcasters, and just before Urubamba sunset: nothing. At 2300 there is a poor AM open carrier, that or RRI? 2302 changes to DRM noise, so RRI, and late switching. They are getting more and more slipshod in operations, uncertain whether to run this hour in AM or DRM, or both; perhaps leading up to abolition of SW as they were expecting to happen in the near future. Propagation from SAm is subnormal too, e.g.. 5952.45 Bolivia is a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 9695.039, Nov 10 at 1411, VP talk off-frequency. NDXC/Aoki shows BSKSA in Pashto, 1358-1558, 500 kW, 55 degrees from Riyadh (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1903 monitoring: confirmed Thursday November 9 at 2230 on WRMI, 5850, VG S9+25. Also confirmed UT Friday November 10 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9330.0v-CUSB, but JBA, much weaker than 9265, 9370, 7490, like previous nights, still auroral conditions, or QRP? Next:

Fully updated complete WOR schedule, including new affiliate WCSQ-LP 105.9 Cobleskill NY, http://radiocobleskill.org/ plus other FM, AM,
webcasters, satellite:

** U S A. 5970, Nov 10 at 0142, WEWN Spanish active here, S9+20. They have picked a pretty clear frequency; BBC English via Oman at 00-02 is no problem over here, and Aoki-listed R. Itatiaia, Brasil is long gone. WEWN still VG at 1402 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Nov 9 at 2257 UT, KYND Cypress TX stunting about programming on this 25 kW station is audible now pre-sunset, as has also been heard post-sunrise, about the same under KOKC. They have had no takers for a long time, but somehow manage to pay the electric (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1470, Nov 10 at 1351 UT, Spanish dialog, one voice childish, loops NE/SW. Unless there has been a more recent and closer flipper, among US SS stations in the NRC AM Log, most likely appears to be KMNQ Brooklyn Park MN (Minneapolis), ``La Raza``, 5/5 kW U4. It`s not quite too late for Mexico either, as XERF is still audible on 1570; two or three unlikely stations near the bearing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4876.65-USB, Nov 10 at 0708, 2-way in American English, regarding fishing? Something weighed 9996 pounds (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6135, Nov 10 at 1404, very poor talk, intonation reminds me of Jeff White, but surely not. Is Voice of Freedom clandestine from South to North Korea back on this frequency today? Maybe trace of noise jamming. As of Nov 8, Ron Howard said VOF carrier-only was on 5920 and not on 6135 for a long time. Otherwise, how about long-path from Madagascar, which also has not been reported in a long time?! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6250, Nov 10 at 0701, JBA carrier, probably not Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, too late; if it were on, the prime time to hear it would be around 0500/0600. It was widely heard for a few nights in July testing all-night, not since, except maybe for this:

``6250, Oct 28, 1915, R Nacional de Guinea Equatorial, Malabo (presumed), Spanish talk, CWQRM (AP-DNK) (Anker Petersen, Denmark, SW Bulletin Nov 6 via DXLD)``

Korean radio war of Echo of Hope vs Echo of Unification are also on 6250 but certainly not in Spanish. There are also scads of Europirates in this range (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
