** CUBA. 6020, Oct 5 at 0547, RHC music and English, leapfrog mixing
product of 6100 over 6060 another 40 kHz lower, attains S8, very poor,
but axually more audible than JBM and suptorted fundamental 6000 at
S9+10! The rest: 6165 S9+10 & 6100 S8 very poor both undermod. 6060 is
VG S9+20. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 13740, Oct 5 at 1400, RHC Spanish opening `Sonido Cubano`
music show, in clear until *1401:30 other transmitter cuts on with
China Plus CRI English relay in progress, now collaborating to make a
SAH just over 1 Hz of 64 fades per minute. These two very strong
signals take turns dominating as each fades slightly and independently
from two different sites. Finally RHC signal and modulation disappear
at 1406:40 after more than 5 minutes` collision, Commies vs Commies!
Typical; something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** INDONESIA. 3325, Oct 5 at 1250, open carrier at S6-S8, enough
signal that I could axually hear programming if there were any, from
NBC Bougainville, or VOI via RRI Palangkaraya. But continues dead air
1300-1302, 1309. More likely the latter as Ron Howard has observed:

``3325, Voice of Indonesia (presumed), via RRI Palangkaraya, 1208,
Sept 13. Carrier heard at decent level, but with no trace of any
audio; this is not the first time recently that I have noted the same
thing (Ron Howard, Ocean Beach [San Francisco], CA, EtÃn E1, antenna:
100' long wire, WOR iog via DXLD)``

However, Ron`s report for today Oct 5 has now arrived, saying he heard
NBC at 1035, but it was off by 1137, when there was nothing either
from RRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT [and non]. 15105-15110-15115, Oct 5 at 1312, again today DRM
noise from R. Kuwait in Arabic, but fluttery AM CCI in Chinese, i.e.
CNR1 jammer and/or VOA Thailand this hour only. R. Kuwait has not
diligently chosen a clear frequency: CRI is also on 15110 at 11-13
100/500 kW via Urumqi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1950 monitoring: I have quit
checking 9330 everyday at 2330 as originally promised by WBCQ, but
since I`m bandscanning anyway, Friday October 5 at 2337, I run across
it: Yes, there I am and there is Brother Scare too mixing in with me,
both at the same time. This is the third or fourth occasion WBCQ has
done this to us; are they having a little fun at our expense, since BS
and I are not exactly friendly??? Enough, already. Next:

Also plugs Pirate Joe (who is on hold on phone, no time left), to be
heard Saturday at 9 pm ET on 7490. That must be a change, as he used
to be at 7-9 pm. Now the online sked shows, EST sic:
7490 Sa 2200 2340 UTC Sa 06:00PM 07:40PM EST Good Sounding Oldies
7490 Su 0100 0400 UTC Sa 09:00PM 12:00AM EST Shortwave Saturday Night

John Carver files his summary of the whole AWWW this week:

``I believe the show started on time this evening although a power
anomaly blew the clock on my radio last night. Listening on 7490.
Allan, Angela, Tom and Robert in the studio this evening. Opening talk
about the golden age of radio, the history of radio and RCA. First
phone call at 0012 from Freddie. More talk about the superstation then
talk shifted to a discussion about WLW and their experiments with high
power and then back to the new antenna for the superstation.

Phone call at 0031 with talk of noise on new radios and the danger of
electrical shock when using old radios. Pirate Joe called at 0035 and
moved the discussion back to the golden age or radio. Some more talk
about the atrocious noise floor full of digital filth. Signal on 7490
starts to degrade around 0050.

Allan announces a new fall special offer for 5130 Monday thru Friday
for fifteen dollars per hour. Welcomes pirate operators.

Reading of emails at 0055. Quick prayer at 0057. Show was off the air
at 0100 and 7490 went into Dead Frog Radio. John, Mid-North Indiana``

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, October 5 at 1221-

WSW. 747 & 774 were strongest at outset; and when finishing at 1240 I
recheck 774 and find it still audible, but much weakened. LSR: 1230 UT

UNIDENTIFIED. 11610, Oct 5 at 1318, open carrier at S9+10, off* in
