** CHINA [and non]. 15340, June 1 at 1244, soft song at S3-S6 with
flutter, 1246 Chinese talk. Aoki/NDXC shows jammed SOH relay of RFA.

9230, June 1 at 1319, Chinese and music // 11785, CNR1 jammer against
Sound of Hope. EiBi shows SOH on 9230.1 but not a jammer. Aoki/NDXC
shows both on 9230. No het audible here.

15165, June 1 at 1335, very heavy CCI in Chinese, i.e. VOA via
THAILAND this hour only, vs CNR1 jamming. The latter goes off at
1400* when VOA has already quit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 6165, June 1 at 0438, RHC English is about S9 of dead air,
or maybe JBM? 6000 likewise but slightly audible; 6060 Spanish is
OFF. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 4765, June 1 at 0440, surprised to find R. Progreso carrier
still on, after nominal 0400*; maybe a trace of modulation?
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 9640, June 1 at 0448, RHC Spanish is S8 of dead air or maybe
JBM. Still on and the same at 0547, but S5-S7. Supposed to quit at
0400 per Aoki/NDXC, and nothing else scheduled afterwards.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 15230, June 1 at 1335, RHC S9 but very undermodulated; much
louder on S9+20 15140. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,

** GERMANY. 9370, June 1 at 0443, music and talk in uncertain
language, VP S2-S5 vs storm noise from TX; where I have not noticed
anything before. HFCC shows 0430-0630 IBB Lampertheim in Fas, i.e.
Radio Farda, as confirmed by Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** OKLAHOMA. Ever since OETA without notice abruptly terminated its
OKLA subchannel-2 at the end of 2018y, replacing it with the
yellowish WORLD channel from PBS, I have been looking for a recording
of its blue ID slide for posterity, since I don`t think I ever
captured it before. Finally found one on an old tape:


While we`re at it, some more DTV pixillated art. These are from KWTV
-25 breakup on rabbit ears/UHF loop antenna; not sharp due to camera
focusing problem and hand-held, but adding? to mystique:
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1984 monitoring: confirmed first
US SW broadcast, Friday May 31 at 2207 the 2200 on WRMI 9955 --- very
poor on portable, but at 2225 good S9+10 to S8 on the R75.

Also confirmed UT Sat June 1 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 but poor vs
storm noise level.

Also confirmed Sat June 1 at 1145 the 1130 on WRMI 9955, fair-good.

Not confirmed Sat June 1 from 1431 on HLR 9485-CUSB; via UTwente not
a trace of even the reduced carrier vs huge splash from 9490 Romania;
nor when tried with LSB tuning as I have called for. Next:

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

** U S A. 7490+, UT Sat June 1, at 0000 sharp, WBCQ starts playing
``William Tell Overture`` theme to `Allan and Angela Wiener
Worldwide`, but without any interjexions, intact complete until 0003,
a bad sign that something may be wrong. Then dead air, while I
recheck 9330+ to find that one still BSing instead of // 7490+. At
0006:40, WTO starts all over! This time AW comments, ``no more
repeats, we`re here from Monticello, Maine`` and fades down theme
before it complete again. Hard to copy anything due to weak signal vs
nearby storm noise level. Not rechecked until 0043, when now it`s
Pirate Joe, J P Ferraro instead of AW but with similar voice and
accent; so I don`t know what happened in the meantime, and haven`t
heard yet from John Carver. Can anyone else infill us? (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 15770, May 31 at 2000, WRMI-9 is S6-S7 but dead air, still
so at 2019. This was when, Fridays only, a new hour broadcast of
`Radio for Peace International` was supposed to appear. As always,
poor signal here off the side of its 44-degree NE beam back toward

9455, meanwhile, Fri May 31 at 2019, this WRMI-8 with music from the
also new APS Radio, M-F only 19-21; at 2051 modulation if not carrier
cuts off and on and off and on, hard to tell which on non-BFO
receiver. Only fair signal on 355 degree antenna, same as 9395 (Glenn

UNIDENTIFIED. 6900-AM, June 1 at 0435, JBA carrier; could be a pirate
where there is not normally a carrier; even YHWH? Which I still have
not been able to detect on the 7 MHz band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

UNIDENTIFIED. 10775, June 1 at 1316, open carrier as S1-S4 and then
off. Thought it might be Sound of Hope/jamming, but not listed on
this frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
