** ANGUILLA. 6090, Dec 10 at 0205, Caribbean Beacon is gone again even from night frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 10 at 0549, JBA carrier from WRMI, not enough to tell whether with Radio Biafra. Zero signal on // 7240 via France (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 680, Dec 10 at 0700 UT, ``680 CJOB, Your News Station``, then news from Canadian Press starting with carbon monoxide in BC, and an ABC correspondent in Alabama. Dominant on my east-west longwire, even tho from the north. All 50 kW supposed to head NNE from Winnipeg at night, and most of it in daytime. And is CJOB really in $ tereo as in NRC AM Log? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5025, UT Sunday December 10 at 0148, R. Rebelde is OFF, but there is a JBA carrier on 5025.007, PerÃ? Q.v. Or maybe RR exciter. By 0201 it`s back on full strength with rock song in English, ``Tonight We All Unite``, and more in English; what`s with that? Perceptibly // vs QRM on 1180, 1620, 710 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 10 at 0548, can`t pull a JBA carrier from R. Kiribati, but I can get one at 0655. 24 hours earlier I could not hear it at all, but so marginal at best that I did not conclude it was off. However, concerning UT Dec 9, these reports in IRCA:
``Since I've been trying to hear Kiribati on 846 over the past couple of weeks I've always had a good carrier from 0530ish until when it goes off at variable times around 1000 UT. Last night I didn't hear a trace of it all night. Conditions wouldn't seemed to have changed enough to account for that, so was it perhaps off the air? I'm curious if anyone heard them on last night. 73, Nigel Pimblett, Dunmore, AB``
``The NZ Radio DX League's Bryan Clark located ~100 km north of Auckland asks the same question? He had been registering Kiribati's tx slightly offset to the low side of 846, along with someone exactly on 846.00 -- which he presumed to be Newstalk ZB from Masterton/Waingawa down near Wellington. His evening/NZ date 9 Dec or early hours of UT/9 Dec, only the exact 846.00 was showing, leading him to surmise Kiribati was not on air. Theo Donnelly``.
No reports yet of whether they were hearing it again on UT Dec 10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Dec 10 at 0211, S9 music, jazz piano, a few more tunes until 0219 Wolverine Radio ID as expected (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5025.007, Dec 10 at 0148, R. Rebelde is surprisngly off, but there is a JBA carrier here. Is it R. Quillabamba? IIRC it used to be slightly on the lo side; if not, maybe the Rebelde exciter. By 0201, RR is back on, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PHILIPPINES. 9335, Dec 9 at 2230, Yankee Doodle VP but audible, more so than 9330 WBCQ which I am trying to hear with zero success. VOA is closing a semihour in Cambodian due west from Tinang (and to resume at 2330 with a semihour in Myanmarianese) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1907 monitoring: ``Dear Glenn, How are you? I hope very well in this final of autumn. Here is my audio report of World Of Radio 1907 on SW for B17 period.

Marabello, http://acquamarina.blogspot.com``
Alan Gale, England, reports: ``Nothing on 7265 again today --- Hi Glenn, Nothing heard of HLR on 7265 kHz this afternoon [1531 UT Sat], even the Indian station [CRI East Turkistan] seemed weaker than usual. I can't work out if it is just propagation or if they're off air; they're usually at least audible here, even if they're very weak. I'll try and catch your programme on WRMI or WBCQ instead. Alan``
NOT confirmed, Sat Dec 9 at 2230 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: NO signal detectable, as I had hoped on the one day per week when scheduled two hours earlier. (Neighbors: 9265 WINB S9+5; 9350 WWCRBS S9+50; 9370 WWRBS S9+30; 9395 WRMI S9+20).
Confirmed, Sat Dec 9 after 2300 on WRMI 11580, fair. By repeat at 0200 UT Sun Dec 9, 11580 has faded to a JBA carrier.
Confirmed, UT Sunday Dec 10 at 0429 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+30, at the Shiokaze sked by Ivo, about 14 minutes in so started close to nominal 0415. Next:

** U S A. 5085, Dec 10 at 0147, WTWW-2 with Xmasmx, ``Merry Little Xmas``; more past 0204 and no `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` by 0207; while WTWW-1 continues to be AWOL now from 9475 and 5830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1250, Dec 9 at 1850 UT, good signal in Spanish, obviously KYYS, Kansas City KS, La Equis, La SÃper EstaciÃn, which makes it here only on skywave, 25 kW with major lobe to the WSW while we are SW of it.
I`m at the kite field in north-central Enid, away from power lines, but too close to 1390 & 960, undertaking a low-noon bandscan on the caradio, as local mean noon here is always 1832 UT. Nothing much on low band, not even 670 KLTT Denver, which normally barely reaches on groundwave. But lots of skywave CCI above 1100, e.g. 1130, presumably KS & LA. Further:
1270, Dec 9 at 1850 UT, Spanish also atop this frequency, i.e. KFLC, Benbrook (The Metroplex) TX which is now ESPN Deportes, updating the NRC AM Log. 50 kW almost ND, with groundwave just beyond Norman per radio-locator. Totally overcoming Tulsa/Claremore which is our normal daytime groundwave occupant. Benbrook? A 21K suburb, SW side of Fort Worth, now with a claim to fame; but radio-locator site pin is on the east side of FW. 1270 was the original KFJZ.
1540, Dec 9 at 1853 UT, KXEL Waterloo IA is skywaving in, with oldtime radio, drama also plugging the DAV. 1857 UT it`s `Classic Radio Theater` from USA Radio Network, fades for ID around hourtop, but matches KXEL sked for Sat:
``Noon-1:00 p.m. KXEL Classic Radio Matinee``
And KXEL IDs in passing at 1907 UT.
1560, Dec 9 at 1856 UT, gospel huxter in English atop sports from OKC, 1858 UT fading. I would have guessed KKAA Aberdeen SD, but it is supposedly off the air pending new owner, ex-Family Radio. Surely instead closer 10 kW ND, KLNG Council Bluffs IA. Also getting ``The Zone`` on 1620 from Omaha at 1855 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
