** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed Dec 13 at 1356, Slovakia in Spanish via WRMI with considerable Cuban pulse jamming, but by 1400 it has abated, but not off, as `FG Radio` is starting its long-awaited new episode; the entire program, without any Beatles breaks, is a phone interview with author Gary Powers, Jr., ``Letters from a Soviet Prison``, his multi-year project to acquire and publish writings of his father, the U2 pilot who was shot down and imprisoned for a couple of years before being exchanged at the bridge in Potsdam for a Soviet spy. He kept a journal while in custody, and was able to communicate with family (not explained why this was allowed).

Very interesting; have not seen or heard him yet on the American book-tour circuit. Maybe why: the book is a private printing of only 500, which can be ordered direct from him while available, $ 25 plus postage from Gary Powers, Jr., P O Box 1356, Midlothian VA 23113, or gpowersjr@coldwar.org. Next year it will be published commercially and available from the usual sources. The host is presumably Nathan Morley, but modestly never names himself on the air.

Full WOR schedule via all media, and podcast access:

** U S A. 9455, Dec 13 at 1054, 1435 and 1640 chex, this WRMI #5 transmitter at 285 degrees is missing, when it should be audible like 9395 & 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Dec 13 at 0701, WEWN Spanish is continually breaking up with crackle, splattering plus/minus 10 kHz. Still scratchy at 1427.

12065, Dec 13 at 1418, WEWN English in Teresa`s RCC talkshow, S9+30 with squeals, and spurblob peaks approx. plus and minus 9 kHz, and double that weaker at 18 kHz --- just like we would hear whenever 15610 arrived with a very strong fundamental signal. I.e., circa 12047, 12056, 12074, 12083. The spur field range is detectable out to plus/minus 25 kHz, 12040-12090, bad news for innocent bystations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775.150, Dec 13 at 1526, KVOH playing `Feliz Navidad` tune, JosÃ? Distorted and considerably off-frequency. Splatter field only 17765-17785, not further into the 18068+ hamband at the moment, altho fundamental is quite strong.

(BTW, I have remeasured and refined the correxion factors on the R75 for precise frequency measurements to the Hz. Probably accurate to within 2 Hz) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 13 at 0705, WTWW-2 is still on with S9+20 of dead air. Wonder when the music stopped? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1700 UT December 13
