My apology, first try omitted subject line. No change in content:

** BRAZIL. 9664.404, Dec 15 at 0714, Voz MissionÃria with whistling, ID? Has been fairly stable lately around this off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 7415, Dec 15 at 1537, Firedragon jamming is S9 vs inaudible target, RFA Chinese via Tinian at 15-19 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Dec 15 at 0707, R. Rebelde is S9 but music is just barely modulated (JBM). Something is always wrong at RadioCuba. Wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15438, Dec 15 at 1526, extremely distorted spurblob from RHC 15370 which is S9+30, no specific carrier to measure, so I go looking for more at 67-68 kHz intervals, approx.: 15302 at S9+10; weaker 15235 causing ACI to intentional other RHC channel 15230; also circa 15167, 15100, 15504. Another further could be light QRM to Trenton 15034-USB. Somethings are always wrong at Radio Habana Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Dec 15 at 1531, CRI English relay is S9+20 but overmodulated/distorted instead of usual undermodulation. Trying too hard? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15700, Dec 14 at 2040, S9+20 open carrier. I`m quite sure it`s VOA Greenville-B, warming up for the only-one-hour 2100 broadcast on 15580, which usually is done on nearby 15570 to avoid overlapping with Botswana on 15580 until 2100, but not now. 15700 cuts off at 2048* and I immediately retune to 15570 where the same level OC is now running there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1908 monitoring: confirmed Thursday December 14 at 2230.5 on WRMI 5850, S9+20; carrier did not come on until *2228.5. Not confirmed UT Fri Dec 15 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, tho there may be an imagination-level JJBA carrier at times (neighbor 9265 WINB is very poor now too). Next:
Sat 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW, 7780 to NE
Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1909?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, and podcast access:

** U S A. 9455, Dec 15 at 0710, WRMI-5 is back on the air, S9+10 with Oldies // 9395. 9455 had been AWOL since at least 1054 Dec 13 when first noticed. Still on at 1428 with `The Power Hour`; 1520 back to Oldies // 9395 & >> 7780, as TPH replay only lasts two hours now at 13-15 weekdays. It would make more sense for the replay of Friday afternoon to go out on Saturday morning rather than Monday; unsure which without checking yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775.149, Dec 15 at 1521, KVOH is S9+30 and distorted in Spanish, but no spur field audible, still off-frequency like Dec 13 at same time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1700, Dec 15 at 1422 UT, dead air from stronger station, presumably KKLF Richardson TX, DF seems to fit, while English talk audible from understation, presumably KBGG Des Moines IA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1500+, Dec 15 at 1416 UT, het on the plus side to KSTP, roughly NNW/SSE. Doubt it`s my closest KJIM Sherman, often audible and on-frequency; there are three other Texans, closest to the bearing being KANI Wharton; or from LA, KCLF New Roads (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Dec 15 at 0724 UT, music is JBA but S9 on the meter, sounds like pop and then English? announcer. In that case probably not RetÃn lo que Tienes, Baton Rouge pirate which typically aired screaming gospel huxter in Spanish, not heard for some weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1736 UT December 15
