Logs
** BRAZIL. Jorge Freitas, Bahia, replies to my survey of 25 & 31m ZYs:

``Hi Glenn,
11915, R GaÃcha, closed
11895, R LegiÃo da Boa Vontade, on
11780, RNA off (Without definition)
11765, closed
9550, R Boa Vontade, on
9515, off (I believe it closed)
9565, Super RÃdio Deus à Amor, on
9675, CanÃÃo Nova, off (I believe it closed)``
(Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165 & 6100, Jan 10 at 0636, both English RHCs are off, which
also explains why I had no JBA carriers as I tuned down past 6270 &
6230, normally leapfrogs of 6060 over 6165, and 6100 over 6165.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. 6060 is still on VG as usual, and so
is 6000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5039.943, Jan 10 at 0643, RHC English with a feature on JosÃ
Martà (named for the US radio service), way off-frequency again but
adequate modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13756.586, Jan 10 at 1429, JBA spur // 13700 RHC. This is not
one of the loud FM ones often heard circa 13765. Not clear if it`s out
of 13700 or 13780v which is also on. It`s 56.586 kHz from 13700 and
see next item. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13779.239, Jan 10 at 1433, RHC Spanish strong fundamental is
another way-off-frequency. (In case significant, note it is 22.653 kHz
from the 13756.586 spur.) Something`s always wrong at RHC.

13882.9, Jan 10 at 1440, JJBBA carrier, like another RHC spur but just
too weak to match any audio or add more digits. It`s 103.66 kHz from
13780- and 182.9 kHz from 13700. Does not match up as a multiple of
other spurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15139.831, Jan 10 at 1504, RHC VG but off-frequency again.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

14968.253v, Jan 10 at 1502, wobbly very weak RHC spur, matched by
15311.403v, i.e. out of 15140v transmitter; but the closer pair circa
14997 & 15283 are not to be heard today.

Since 15140v is yet another off-frequency fundamental, its spurs
should also be offset slightly below their `normal` positions. The
independently measured separations now are: minus 171.578 kHz below;
plus 171.572 above --- a very close match by 6 Hz, within margin of
error! Something`s always wrong at RHC.

But we are indebted to the engineering staff for providing all these
monitoring and mathematical exercises on otherwise dull bands (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Jan 10 at 1422, JBA AM carrier, presumed what`s
left of TGAV Radio Verdad, 38 minutes after sunrise here (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII. 6501-USB, Jan 10 at 0633, rough modulation of marine
weather info, mainly ``seas``, i.e. wave heights in feet, for various
Pacific Ocean coÃrdinates.

Per EiBi it`s USCG Honolulu, NMO, scheduled at 0600-0635 & 1200-1235
only; 6501 time-shared with Alaska, Guam, Chesapeake, and Fuzhou. IIRC
this and/or other USCG stations have long suffered from lousy SSB
modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 9680, Jan 10 at 1528, W&M conversation in Japanese, poor.
It`s NHK, in clear after the China Radio War ends at 1400. NHK also on
9750, both for Asia of course (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Jan 10 at 0635, undermodulated Spanish, S9-S7, as
XEPPM must be overrunning nominal 0600*; perhaps it`s still the RFI
news relay, cut off abruptly at 0638* during what may have been an ID.
For a long time now, earlier in evening, Radio EducaciÃn has been very
weak and also undermodulated, unusable. Clearly SW is the lowest
priority for them, as they are finally expanding into FM. We can only
hope they keep 6185 going as Mexico`s last SW station (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1964 monitoring: confirmed Wed Jan
9 at 2200 on WRMI 9955 and WBCQ 7490v, both good a few words apart.

Also confirmed new time of UT Thursday Jan 10 at 0100 on WRMI 7780,
poor S7-S9. Next:

UNIDENTIFIED. 6990-LSB, Jan 10 at 0628, there he is again, the guy
with long aaaaaahhhhhhs between seeming Japanese syllables. I try to
copy some of those, not necessarily accurately: inati, irata, nishida,
ishanata, oshito, kunitobo, ishado koto, ishina, kita, kata, shana,
koto, ikeda, isina, kata, kita, isoto, ishabata --- and finally,
koshira repeated 9 times in a row.

For kix, I paste these into Google Translate to see what come out.
Immediately detects language as Japanese, and into English:

``Pilgrimage, I needed, Nodai, Nagai, Oshita, Kuonbo, Oka, Okayama,
Ikeda, Kana, Kyoto, Ikeda, Ikebana, Ikeda, Katakana, Iwaso, Welcome``

Two more tries with slight changes get some different wild guesses:

``Pilgrimage, I needed, Nodai, Nagai, Oshita, Kuonbo, Oka, Okayama,
Ikeda, Kana, Kyoto, Ikeda, Ikebana, Ikeda, Katakana, Iwaso, Ishihara,
Kohra``

``Pilgrimage, I needed, Nodai, Nagai, Oshita, Kuonbo, Oka, Okayama,
Ikeda, Kana, Kyoto, Ikeda, Ikebana, Ikeda, Katakana, Iwaso, Buddy``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
