** CANADA. 218 kHz, Jan 11 at 0657 UT, ND beacon RL and dash: 975
watts from Red Lake, Ontario.

223 kHz, Jan 11 at 0658 UT, beacon YYW and dash, 1000 watts from
Armstrong, Ontario.

233 kHz, Jan 11 at 0659, beacon QN and dash, 500 watts from Nakina,
Ontario; all per http://dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm

All three places are too insignificant to be indexed in my State Farm
Rand McNally atlas. Not surprising, since there is no complete map of
Ontario! cutting off the great north, all three too far into it.
Nakina and Armstrong are both not too far north of Thunder Bay and
Lake Superior. Red Lake is NNE of Kenora (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 11820, Jan 11 at 0330, CRI English news S8/S9+10 and 100%
readable on new frequency, whence? O, of course it`s CUBA, 2 x 5910
for the 03-05 transmission, where it`s S9+10/20. 11820 is transmitted,
not receiver-produced overload, since it`s still there with ATT on and
PreAmps off. RHC Spanish itself also on 25m now, strongest 11670 but
distorted, weaker 11700 and 11840 + weakest JBA spurs 11830 & 11850.

But nothing on 12000, 2 x 6000 English which we hear after 0500. Maybe
it`s the same harmonic-prone transmitter on 5910 & 11820 now.
Something`s always wrong at RHC/RadioCuba. 6000 now is suptorted with
CCI tho Turkish from Turkey is supposed to stop at 0300 (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 6140, Jan 11 at 0623, RHC English is JBA // 6165, and the
other three, 6000, 6060 and 6100. 6140 is produced by 6060 leaping
over 6100 another 40 kHz higher. Also are audible JBA carriers from
the usual other leapfrogs on 6230 & 6270. Something`s always wrong at

** CUBA. 5039.927, Jan 11 at 0631, RHC English way off-frequency
again, S9+20/30 with scratchy overmodulation. Rebelde 5025 is
similarly distorted at steadier S9+20. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba/RHC. 24 hours ago I measured it on 5039.943 = 16 Hz higher

** CUBA. 15139.781, Jan 11 at 1457, RHC is S9+30, off-frequency but
modulation OK today; traces of the usual spurpairs, 14997 & 15283,
14968 & 15311. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 24 hours ago I
measured it on 15139.831 = 50 Hz higher (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 13780.0, Jan 11 at 1459, RHC is off air already, but a few
minutes earlier I noticed it was not off-frequency today. Nor are
there any spurs de 13700 on band this time. Something`s not wrong at

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Jan 10 at 2104, no signal from MWV in
Portuguese. Have not checked specifically for the APR English hours,
18 on 13670 and 20 on 11965, but caradio memory scans have failed to
land on anything there for a day or two. That`s because, as Ivo Ivanov

``On Jan. 7 no signal of KNLS Madagascar World Voice MWV. From the
staff of Madagascar World Voice wrote: "We have a problem with
Madagascar here. Yesterday there was a storm and lightning struck the
station started a fire and the transformer burned out. So while
broadcasting of Madagascar will not. The exact date of repair is
unknown because the new transformer must be brought from the
mainland". Winter B18 of MWV:
(Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, WORLD OF RADIO 1964, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

Apparently this knocked both transmitters out. Does ``mainland`` here
refer to Africa or America? Keep an ear on all frequencies for any
resumption (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 4960, Jan 11 at 0634, S7-S9 of open carrier. Obviously
VOA relay, scheduled for an 0630-0700 break between French and Hausa
--- so do they just leave it on for a semihour? Might as well modulate
it with something, like English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** TAIWAN. 7290, Jan 11 at 1505, undermodulated S9+10 talk in Korean.
HFCC shows it`s Encompass via Taiwan at 1500-1600, 300 kW at 352
degrees, but what is it, really? Aoki/NDXC shows Nippon no Kaze via
Paochung (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1964 monitoring [non]: 7780 & 5950, Thursday
January 10 at 2100, I`m ready to find out if WOR is really now on
these WRMIs as surprisingly displayed for at least a week on the
program schedule grid -- and still as of 1554 UT Jan 11:

NO! 7780 has VORW (as contradictorily shown on the transmission grid
for Thursdays only instead of RAE German); and 5950 is // 9395 with
music, presumably Oldies stream. Wondering how well 7780 get into
Europe where it`s aimed 44 degrees, I check 7780 on UTwente SDR at
2142: fair with VORW, John ending the program already, but music keeps
on playing with one or two more announcement breaks.

BTW, the WRMI sked also shows VORW an hour earlier, Thursdays at 20-21
on 7780 & 5950. Also imaginary are other System D 21-22 UT listings as
on 5950 & 7780, such as WOR Tuesdays at 2130, gone for *months*! See

Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:

** U S A. 5970, Jan 11 at 0626 and 0635, dead air from WEWN Spanish;
while 11520 English is audible and nominal at 0640 when 5970 is still
dead. One wonders why a station bother to broadcast at all if it allow
this to happen again and again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9474.976, Jan 11 at 0628, weak talk at S3-S5 when normally
there is nothing. Checking the WTWW-1 day off-frequency, since 5830
night frequency is AWOL. More incompetence at SFAW; meanwhile, the
more important WTWW-2, 5085 is blasting rock at S9+30, plus parasite
JBA spurcarriers circa 5072.1 & 5097.9. Next chex 1502 & 1516, neither
9475- nor 5830 is on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.142v, Jan 11 at 1503, TOMBS via WBCQ on typical offset,
but I noticed yesterday it was much closer to 9330.00 --- and so it
goes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7200-LSB, Jan 11 at 1509, continuous C&W music jamming
by naughty ham, while others try to QSO through it, with denigrating
comments like the jammer`s IQ must be 75. They`d rather do this than
QSY out of it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
