** CANADA. 2598-USB, Oct 15 at 0449, synthyl with marine weather in
English, S4-S5 vs storm crashes up to S9+10.

2749-USB, Oct 15 at 0450, same type of broadcast, weaker S3. Checking
the Canadian Coast Guard website schedule,
we find that these both originate with VCF, altho at many other times
there are separate stations, partly from NS or NL; so these may well
have been in //, not checked:

These are the last broadcasts of the night until resuming at 0847 on
both. But where are these places, exactly, in QuÃbec? Elsewhere in
sked, concerning VHF, coÃrdinates are shown:

La VerniÃre

is in the Magdalen Islands.


is on the north shore of St Lawrence in remote SE Quebec, on hwy 138;
far from Les Escoumins HQ for VCF, also on hwy 138 much further west
between Rimouski and Saguenay.

Above website shows many other DX possibilities on these two MF
channels, on a rotating time schedule; and several other 2 MHz banders
including 2582 and 2514 where I`ve yet to hear anything. Also higher
marine bands from some northern stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 13630 & 13770 approx., Oct 15 at 1348, FM spurs out of RHC
13700-AM, barely detectable with tell-tale F# tone but no readable
modulation; even less so around 13773, 13763, 13637, 13623, 13555, so
the main peaks are plus and minus 70 kHz, but now also elsewhere in
between. Need to tighten them up! Something`s always wrong at RHC

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Oct 14 at 2126, R. Nigeria, Kaduna, via WRMI,
in Hausa at S9, still going for this transmission. I wonder if there
is any English? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1952, DX LISTENING

WOR 1951 confirmed Sunday October 14 at 2130 on WRMI 7780 at S4-S6 AND
on WRMI 9955 at S9+10 but with pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! The
two frequencies are about one word apart, so separate playouts rather
than exactly // from same feed; just before at 2127 they were
different, 9955 with World Music and 7780 with `Wavescan`.

Also confirmed UT Monday Oct 15 after 0300 on Area 51 webcast, and via
WBCQ 5129.84, good S9 ending at 0330:29 so started circa 0301:40. The
0330 UT Mon Oct 15 on WRMI 9955 is a JBA carrier vs pulse jamming, but
audible on webcast.

WOR 1952 completed and uploaded by 2351 UT October 15, ready for first
airings on WRMI: confirmed UT Tuesday October 16 at 0030 on 7730, VG
S9+20/30. Also new immediate repeat confirmed UT Tue Oct 16 at 0100 on
9955, very poor S7 in pulse jamming; by 0114 has faded to JBA carrier
leaving nothing but jamming. Tnx a lot, Arnie! I sure hope 9955 has
held up into its South American target area. Next:

UNIDENTIFIED. 2960, Oct 15 at 0452, S2 bit of broadcast talking,
presumably a 2 x 1480 harmonic, and where WERM, Mobile AL, has been
heard before.

But I also have JBA carriers on many nearby frequencies: 2940, 2980,
3020, 3040, 3050, 3070, 3180, 3200. 2940 had HJNT, Cali, Colombia,
last April. All but 3070 could also be second harmonix. Some or all of
them could also be R75 receiver-produced; but I am only hearing such
in this area, not lower on 2 MHz band. If & when we get extremely
quiet no-storm winter conditions, maybe something else can be
identified (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
