** BRAZIL. 11856.763, May 31 at 0619, VP S4-S5 music, as R. Aparecida
has varied way up to here, not only above nominal 11855, but above
11856 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non?]. 11895, May 31 at 0617, poor signal, talk in Chinese?
HFCC, Aoki/NDXC and EiBi agree that during this hour we have CRI in
English via Kashgar, East Turkistan, 209 degrees for Pakistan; and
RFA in Mandarin, 78 degrees via Kuwait for C&E China; and except for
HFCC, which Sees No Evil, therefore jamming, which EiBi labels as
CNR1 or Firedrake. Anyhow, something from over there is midnightly
propagating solsticeally (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, May 31 at 0211, RHC English is OFF, leaving only 6000
which is S9+10/20 but as usually, undermodulated. 6060 Spanish is
also OFF. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 12200, May 31 at 0612, RHC English good at S8-S9, just as
readable as its fundamental 6100, S9+10/20, a nice indicator that the
MUF is up, despite no RHC or WRMI fundamentals on 25m. Back on 49m,
6000 & 6060 are still AWOL, while 6165 is JBM at S9-S7. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860, May 31 at 0618, weak S1 residual noise jamming
audible, on a Radio Martí frequency active only in the daytime.
Something`s always excessive at the DentroCuban Jamming Command

** MADAGASCAR [and non]. 5009.931, May 31 at 0332, JBA carrier,
presumed RNM on signature off-frequency; checking after Zanzibar
6015; then I tune 5915 for Zambia but nothing there (Glenn Hauser,

** MEXICO. 6185, May 31 at 0251, XEPPM with good modulation for a
change in a song, S9/+10. This season there is no Vatican or anything
else to collide all evening here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** NORTH AMERICA. 7440-7615, May 31 at 0335 and later, nothing from
Station YHWH, which Ron Howard and Walt Salmaniw have heard
reactivated after many months on 7480, 7495 sporadically around this
time last few nights. I remember he once used 7615 too (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 1230, May 31 at 0155 UT, looking for DX in absence of WBBZ
Ponca City, but now it`s after sunset when there is plenty of other
QRM: briefly atop is a Rangers silly baseball game, 0156 break for
ad, but if local cannot copy it. DF seems NNW/SSE.

Texas Rangers provides map and station list on one page as of

On 1230, there are two:
KSEY Haskell TX, near Wichita Falls, SSW of here, W of Arlington
KSST Sulphur Springs, in NE TX, SE of here, E of Arlington
(but in Waco not on KWTX), so KSST is more likely by DF. I am no
station-counter so less than 100% certainty is no problem. It is what
it is (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 6015, May 31 at 0328:50 tune-in, presumed ZBC is already
on, as I was hoping to catch its cut-on, which Ron Howard says is now
around 0330, JIP programming after official sign-on at 0300. S9 but I
can`t hear much modulation. Others report their other frequency 11735
active but weak; I used to hear it before 2100v* but not any more
