** CHINA. 11500, May 16 at 1348, Chinese S5-S8 with flutter, CNR1 jammer, same talk as on 11785; 11500 is a Sound of Hope frequency any time from 2030 to 1700, and *jammed per NDXC/Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, May 16 at 2053, surprised to find Portuguese on here from RHC. No, I`m not --- something`s always wrong at RHC. 11760 is not scheduled to start until 2100 in Spanish. But there is no Portuguese on any frequency at this time, the closest being 2000-2030 on 11860 to Europe. So far, 11760 is the Only Cuban On Band (OCOB) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA [and non] WRMI 9955

** ECUADOR. 6050, May 16 at 0603, Spanish preaching on VP signal vs heavy splash from 6060 Cuba. Must be HCJB, way past normal 0230+*. (I never have any luck with ELWA, but co-channel co-religionists running overtime certainly won`t help) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 530, May 16 at 2004 UT, ``K530AM``, Vance AFB has again crashed to dead air. Still so May 17 at 1555 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1930 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday May 16 at 2100 on WRMI 9955; it only cut on air about a semiminute earlier with tail of IS & ID loop, but just in time, S7-S4.

WBCQ 7490.1 is already on, and also starts WOR 1930 at S6-S3, about 3 words behind WRMI. Not confirmed Wed May 16 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v, as TOMBS continues --- and it sounds very familiar as if the same recording is being played during this hour from one day to next. It goes from moanin` `n` groanin` to comments by BS at 2331. Next WORs:

** U S A [and non]. 9955, May 17 at 0249, WRMI in Spanish with heavy multiple-pulse jamming (but not full-bore wall of noise), why? 0230-0300 daily is R. Eslovaquia Internacional. Either total incompetence, or the Cuban Commies still have it in for those who have overthrown the yoke of dictatorship. Same jamming still going on 9955 vs nothing at 0610, since WRMI quits at 0400* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, May 16 at 0600, WWCR is on again with S9+30 of dead air; why? A great way to waste expenses (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, May 16 at 2054 check, WTWW-2 is off again, after having made a surprise rare showup all(?)-day yesterday. Simultaneously, 9475 is on with WTWW-1 SFAW, and no +/- 12.9 kHz spurs, so this time it`s the original #1 transmitter instead of #2 sometimes employed on #1 frequency. 9930 still off at 1555 check May 17 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 7505, May 17 at 0251, JBA carrier with WRNO off (or maybe exciter only?). Rather the only other 7505 station, per NDXC/Aoki: AIR Delhi, 0230-0300 in Hindi via Khampur site (also 0130-0230 Nepali via Kingsway). Recheck 0600, still nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, May 17 at 0604, WEWN Spanish is AWOL; but 11520 English at 0614 is on, VP vs S9+10 ute bursts every few seconds. 12050, May 17 at 1559, Spanish is on but very weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, May 17 at 1555 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS is back to SNAFU mode as described countless times before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1609 UT May 17
