** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6150, Dec 31 at 0001, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY has just started, rock music underway, VG S9+10/20 on new frequency, ex-5960 where there is nothing. No QRM ACI or CCI to affect 6150 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Dec 30 at 2229, martial music at S4-S6, sounds German; 2233 ID as ``Radio USA, with a Nazi holiday``, more lofi band music, maybe authentic from the era, instrumental and some choral; if Horst Wessel Lied is included, I do not recognize it. 2238 fading, losing to local HNL, but R75 noise blanker helps. 2247 ``Nazi Christmas on Radio USA`` but never heard any carols. 2252 says something about Ohio, ID again, and greeting to ``the Grand Wizard of the Missouri Ku Klux Klan, sieg-heil!`` and some more music; 2254 fading more, longer announcement mentioning ``500 hours``? Maybe another broadcast time? Brief rendition of ``Deutschland Ãber Alles``, and off just before 2257*. Then a few seconds of ``running water``, coincidental?
Now I look up what others have reported on HFU:
Classified as a parody; one guy IDed most of the music, and it was 500 dollars, not hours, for a T-shirt (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1910 monitoring. Alan Gale, England, says the Sat 1531 on HLR 6190-CUSB was not audible this week. Sat Dec 30 at 2230, WOR IS well audible, a good S9+10 on WBCQ 9329.970-CUSB, sounds like it could be running full power. By 2300 when Blalock starts blasting, has drifted to 9330.025 (9330 already had a music prÃlude at 2225 tune-in, before starting The Planet ID & IS runup loop). Also confirmed Sat Dec 30 at 2300 VG on WRMI 11580, S9+30 to S9+10, but by 2310 starting some deep fades. We will have to wait two more weeks until Jan 13 before the QSY to 7780 is supposed to go into effect. By 0200 UT Sun Dec 31 at 0200, 11580 is a JBA carrier for the next WOR repeat. Also confirmed UT Sun Dec 31 at 0437 about halfway thru, so started circa 0421 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+20/30 but with CW QRM, the lower/longer 160m band crammed with CW contesters. Next:
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW [not pre-empted]
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1911?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1911?]

** U S A. WRMI has now put up a new 9955 program schedule effective January 1, already.
Among other changes, the Wed 1415 broadcast of WORLD OF RADIO has been dropped. That leaves only UT Mon 0430 on 9955. So far the times on other frequencies are still shown.
Parallel frequency setups seem to be changing. Sat Dec 30 at 2213 I find that unlistenable now half-hour `Dub Politico` is not only on 9955 but also 11580, while on weekdays they would be different. Oldies music inhabits all three, 9455, 9395 and 7780, but 7780 is off by 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490.09v, Sat Dec 30 at 2302, WBCQ S9+20 with ``Ride of the Valkyries`` theme for `SW Saturday Night`; then J P Ferraro is relieved that there is no more terrible stuff to talk about this year with only one 30 hours left in 2017y; seems to have a rumble on his audio. WBCQ needs your help now more than ever after the transmitter fire, which he says is also what happened to its predecessor. And 3265 unit is the same kind of transmitter, so will not be activated until the air plenum which caused the fire on #1 is replaced on it, and with weather in northern Maine frightful, that won`t be completed until it warms up.
5129.807v, Dec 31 at 0002, WBCQ starting Radio Timtron Worldwide, S9+10.
9330v-CUSB, Dec 31 at 0004, sounds like Blalock is blasting for a second hour, but has faded to a JBA carrier after having been S9+10 when it started at 2230 with WORLD OF RADIO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
