** ANGUILLA. 11775, Oct 11 at 1329, PMS is on from TUN via CB; has
been quite sporadic, not heard here nor at night on 6090 for a week or
more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4885.024, Oct 11 at 0538, R. Clube do ParÃ, S9 with music
and Portuguese announcement, only slightly off-frequency. CODAR QRM
swishes from the plus side only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** BRAZIL. 9664.831, Oct 11 at 0605, R. Voz MissionÃria the best
Brazilian by far, S9 with music; quick check for others: no signals
circa 9675, 9725; weaker sigs circa 9565, 9630, 9819, 11857 (Glenn

** CHINA [non]. 13740, Oct 11 at 1405, China Plus via CUBA with higher
modulation level than usual, slightly distorted, and louder than RHC
on 13700; 1406 starting `Roundtable`, cleared up except for a light
squeal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Oct 10 at 0604, R. Rebelde with double audio, music and
talk, both undermodulated. Or is this intentional voice-over
programming? On SW it`s not so clear. One of them is not // 6000 RHC
English; but 5040 has not been turned off yet, dead air. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Oct 11 at 1410, S9+30 carrier and off --- got to be
RHC, obliterating any trace of Oman; back on at 1411, and to remove
any doubt, a bit of RHC modulation // 15230 before cutoff again. Must
be IBB-like, transmitter check for upcoming broadcast from 1500. Until
then, 15230 RHC is the SSOB at S9+20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Oct 11 at 0534, R. Truth with amateur hymnody,
still on as usual, altho Manuel MÃndez reported it signed off at 0500*
October 5; an anomaly in transmission or logging? Normally until
0610v* except two hours earlier on UT Mondays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** INDONESIA. 3325, Oct 11 at 1257, RRI Palangkaraya manages to
modulate today with song, S4-S5, 1300 talk, but still too weak to be
positive it`s English from VOI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6165, Thursday Oct 11 at 1303, Sea Breeze from
JSR Tokyo in weekly English broadcast; earnest YL with brief Daily NK
items between stingers; still no QSY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Oct 11 at 0603, VON unmodulated carrier cutting off
and on at S9+10/20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9330.133v, Oct 11 at 1413, S5-S7 of dead air
from WBCQ; and ALSO at 1418, S8-S9 of dead air from WRMI. Not a
coincidence, since both have lost feed from Walterboro. Neither is
prepared to fill with music or anything. 5950, another WRMI at S5-S6
also seems dead. This is about when H. Michael crosses SC; what? Can`t
Brother Scare pray it away?? Recheck at 1530, both are back for
Alternative Media TV synthetic soundtrack to inform us that ``The
Vatican controls all government agencies`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1951 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
October 9 at 2030 on WRMI 7780, very poor. Confirmed Wednesday October
10 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490v and WRMI 9955, both poor-fair and just about
synchronized. Next:

** U S A. 3215, Oct 11 at 0530, S9+20 of dead air from WWCR. If I were
a stockholder in this, I would be upset about management burning up
100+ kW for nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, October 10 from
1224 UT (just before LSR of 1234): 774-NW, 864-WSW, 594-NW, 612-WSW,
657-WSW, 675-WSW, 693-NW, 702-WSW, 738-WSW, 765-WSW, 828-WSW(2), 837
