** ARMENIA. 9300, April 19 at 1328, JBA talk. Aoki/NDXC shows the
complex schedule of TWR India, via Yerevan-Gavar site, this 1315
quarter-hour on day 6 = Friday as in the Kur language, shared with
San, Mun and Kui depending on the DOW. Full name of language per WRTH
is Kurukh, which was on 9365 in B-18. EiBi language list shows: ``KUR
Kurukh/Kurux: India-Chhatisgarh, Jharkhand, W. Bengal (2m) [kru]``.
Recently this was on 9330 by punchup mistake; not a good idea with the
Superstation imminent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.240, April 19 at 1330, RHC knocked itself off-frequency
today, as you never know whether it will stick to 13740.00. // 13700
is still accompanied by weak parasitic spurs approx. 28.3 kHz above
and below. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

A couple of listeners have objected to my frequent remark. Many of the
wrongs result from sloppyration rather than worn-out equipment. All I
can say, as on WORLD OF RADIO 1978, is that if and when RHC stops
messing up, there will no longer be any reason to utter it (Glenn

** SUDAN. 7205, April 19 at 0320, singing and drumming at S9, 0329
Arabic talk mentioning Sudan, 0334 instrumental music. Sudan Radio,
domestic service frequency, no doubt under new management. Beware,
that Aoki shows an overlap of Sudan starting at 0210, and PBS
Xinjiang, Urumqi, East Turkistan, in Uyghur until 0257. EiBi, OTOH
shows only a 3-minute overlap, *0257- and -0300* respectively (Glenn

** U K [non]. 17640, April 19 at 1557, BST-1 caradio lands on B-B-C-
chimes, frequency still in memory for when MWV used it in B-18. Should
have been listenable for this 1-hour of BBCWS in English via ASCENSION
to Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1978 contents: Afghanistan, Antarctica,
China, Cuba, Denmark, Finland and non, France, Indonesia, Iran,
Malaysia, Oklahoma, Oman, Romania, Solomon Islands, Sudan, Ukraine,
UK, USA; publications; digital TV and radio; and the propagation

Completed a day earlier than before, at 0205 UT Friday April 19.
Hamburger Lokalradio will still run 1977 at 0630 Sat as they had not
aired it yet, and then 1978 for 1430 Sat & 1030 Sun.

2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 9330.14v, April 19 at 1327, WBCQ still with TOMBS, not the
500 kW Superstation, which per John Carver, Allan Weiner said on
`Worldwide` last Friday night, would start testing in the coming week
on 9330 or 7490, to be announced in his Twits. QRX. No doubt it will
be on 9330.000 and not with Brother HyStairical, we can only hope.
Bring on the flat-earthers! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, April 19 at 0504 UT on the R75 with E-W longwire,
Mexican music, not so eclectic as to be expected from XEEP CDMX but
the SW 6185 is already off. Switching to the DX-398 for DFing at 0544
UT, now it`s WSW/ENE so that rules out XEEP and points to KIJN Farwell
TX; now I am suspecting the songs are of praise, especially with
keywords Vida, Viva, Santo and Gloria.

Trouble is, KIJN is a 10-kW direxional daytimer! But it`s well-known
as a longtime cheater running at night, In Jesus` Name -- WWJD? SS but
not religious beyond in almost same direxion is KXPL El Paso TX,
another 10 kW daytimer ND, but not such a cheater. There are other USA
SS on 1060 in NRC AM Log, none of them likely here and none religious,

** U S A. 1420, April 19 at 0550 UT, super-hype voice actors (SHVA) in
Spanish with promos or ads, Mexican music, 0557 automated TC for 12,
56 = CDT. Something (else?) here in the mix is enough off-frequency to
produce a LAH. I am enjoying the perhaps temporary absence of loud
local KCRC Enid spur on 1420v, while on alternate transmitter
following power outage/surge?

Cannot copy ID at 0601 UT other than FM frequency 103.3 or 106.3.
Loops NW/SE so that rules out Mexico. No Coloradans on 1420, but the
closest likely is KBHS Hot Springs AR, more like ESE, in NRC AM Log as
U1 5000/87 watts, SS but its La Zeta FM as 105.5. Has there been a
change? Bingo! in the WTFDA FM Database:

``K292HG KBHS-1420 106.3 HOT SPRINGS AR USA 0.25 0.25 0.0 0.0 34-27-19
93-03-26 Silent //KZNG 1340. KBHS is silent`` -- silent no more.

Altho there could have been a format flip since it went to press 8+
months ago (and now sold out), NRC AM Log has only other SS on 1420 in
FL, FL, ID, none likelier here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1630, April 19 at 0605 UT, Mexican music loops NNW/SSE,
mutually nullable with KCJJ Iowa, making a medium SAH. The only such
Unitedstatesian is KRND, Fox Farm WY to the NW, confirmed by 0610 UT
with its known identity ``La Jota Mexicana`` IDs in passing.

But where is my closest 1630, KKGM Fort Worth TX? No sign of it in the
mix, off? It`s a gospel huxter in English, with a lot of music. I am
hearing such a format at 1323 UT recheck. Always helpful to tune LSB
to minimize local 1640 KZLS, especially on the way to FTW, and
oppositely to Fox Farm.

Fox Farm cannot be found on the regular Rand McNally atlas, and not
even on the 2013 large-scale version, nor in their indices! (There is a
Foxpark, SW of Laramie). Thus I am forced to seek its location online.
Fox Farm is a suburb of Cheyenne. Yet KRND address, per NRC AM Log, is
way off in Broomfield CO, between Boulder and Denver! Studio? (Glenn
