** BRAZIL. 4875.254, Jan 3 at 0230, music into Brazuguese talk, from R. Roraima, off-frequency and varying slightly, S8-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Jan 1 at 2132, pirate with rock, S8-S9 vs local HNL, soon ID as Radio Free What-ever, only found this after tip about something on 6925, unfound; says he is pro-Yaesu, picks on Icoms; acknowledges posters on HFU. ``FCC knows where I am, locked & loaded``, 2135 music, doze, off at 2200*. Many other logs:
I need to tune for winterpirates even earlier in afternoon, but I wonder why none of them ever seem to operate later in the evening after 01 or 02? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1000, Jan 2 at 0700 UT as I tune past KTOK OKC, ToH ID says they are also on KXXY 96.1 HD2. Not shown in the NRC AM Log; in fact, seems it does not get into such details as FM subchannel duplicates of AM stations, just main channels, translators or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 27, Jan 2 at 2140 UT, I notice that KFOR-TV OKC now has a new subchannel, Justice, as 4.3. Logo is a J in a shield at lower-right. For a long time the only extra was Antenna TV on 4.2. Yes, Justice already shows in rabbitears.info for Market 50. If I wanted to get it on my Sanyo screen I would have to rescan the whole thing, while the Zenith STB finds it right away simply by tuning up from 4.2 on the way to 5.1 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9980, Jan 1 at 2001 check, WWCR is still airing Brother Scare, in fact as I tune in, synthetic voice announcement interrupts that there are no AM/FM or SW broadcasts as of January 1. O, yeah? And that`s not all.
9370, Jan 1 at 2205, WWRB still on with presumed TOM, as that`s all they ever put on this frequency. Ditto 3185 night frequency, BS still has gall to ask for ``sacrifices`` of 1, 10 or 100 thousand dollar donations to help him stay on the air. Spells out contact info as always for his ignorant psychophants.
Then cut to BS with a lead-in cue to next recording for ``Wednesday June 20 on the count of three --- one, two three``, and onward. Well, June 20, 2017 was a Tuesday, so which years were Weds? 2007, 2012 and 2018, but probably long before 2007, out of his huge ego-archive. I can`t stand to listen to his screaming, young or old for more than a few seconds, and IMHO, the man is and was *insane* (and so were everyone who followed him). But, not *too* insane for his current defense, let us hope.
3215 // 5890, Jan 2 at 0659, both WWCRs are still BSing too, almost // 3185 WWRB. Next check at 1453 Jan 2, 9980 WWCR BS and one second later on 9370 WWRB. At 1904, still BS on 9370 WWRB and 9980 WWCR. And still on the third UT day of perpetual? life, Jan 3 at 0238 on 3185.
Contrary to what some assumed, WRMI kept BS on the air till the end of 2017y, but only in three one-hour blox, as I previously reported. But the latest sked update as of January 1 has removed even those, altho I have not confirmed that by monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1911, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Not confirmed UT Wed Jan 3 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, inaudible, contrary to the middle of the night.

** U S A. 11580, Jan 2 at 2105, WRMI with RAE in German as usual; and what else? 7780 is off, but QRX to replace 11580 from Jan 8; instead of Power Hour, which is only on 9395; while 9455 is Wavescan: the skedgrid has finally replaced defunct `15770`` for this hour block.
Not confirmed by monitoring yet, but also now shows additional weekday prepeats of RAE to Europe: 1900 German and 2000 Italian on 9395, in addition to 2100 German & 2200 Italian on 11580. It also shows 0800 Japanese & 0900 Chinese on 9455 only, no more 5850, and no more 0600 Japanese & 0700 English, which have already been gone for a few weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1911, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330.130v-CUSB, Jan 2 at 0710, WBCQ with C&W music at S7-S9, from Kix-FM (sp?) = WBCQ-FM. Still on air all night, and very strangely, around this time it`s propagating well, while around 0030 with WOR it is JBA or NAAL. Maybe there are huge experimental variations in power, rather than propagation? Around this hour it`s bound to collide head-on with Cuban numbers station, but not this time since it is Tuesday. Bulgaria DX Blog shows schedule for that:
``xx55-xx20 broadcasts 25 minutes; xx20-xx25 open carrier/dead air;
xx25-xx50 broadcasts 25 minutes; xx50-xx55 change of frequencies.
0655-0750 9330 secret tx probably BEJ 50 kW Spanish Sun/Mon/Wed/Fri``
9330.15-CUSB seems steady spot during the day on Jan 2, at 1454 only S1-S5 with music, 1500 WBCQ-FM ID and Townhall news, not delayed. Even weaker at 1903, not music, could be Blalock? Or just news on hour. At 2110, jazzy music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17774.888, Jan 2 at 1905, KVOH still on its favorite offset, S9+10/20 in Spanish, undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, Jan 2 at 1904 and misc. other daytime chex, no signal from WTWW-3, so the Xmasmx fest is long over, and transmitter apparently dark again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ZANZIBAR. 6015, Jan 3 at 0338, YL in Swahili from ZBC, S7 to S9+10 and no CCI audible here from East Turkistan which is sked until 0345 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
