** CUBA. 9535, June 5 at 0001, RHC frequency announcement, not the
whole SW list but just 6060 plus the 4 FM frequencies. What does she
know? NOT that 6060 is NOT coming on now and never does, totally absent
all evening both in Spanish and English. Something`s always wrong at

** CUBA. 6000, June 5 at 0002, RHC is S9/S9+30 but JBM in English;
while 6165, the only possible parallel, is off. Since CRI in Spanish is
also on 5990, S9+20/40 but very undermodulated, those two account for
the weak carrier on 6010, leapfrog mixing product. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, June 5 at 0012, music on RHC is splattering out at
least plus/minus 15 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 6165 & 6000, June 5 at 0348, both RHC English frequencies are
now on but both are JBM. 6060 Spanish is still OFF. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11980, June 5 at 2312 weak open carrier, presumnably second
harmonic of 5990 where CRI relay is JBM. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550.22 approx., June 5 at 2308, JBA carrier from R.
Kuwait`s Arabic to C&W N America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** NORTH AMERICA. 7480, June 5 at 0352, S7-S9 but JBA vs noise level,
soon hit by huge S9+10 ute buzz for several seconds. Can`t copy at
first, but sounds like the insistent intonations of Josiah on Station
YHWH. Peaks stronger at 0358 and no doubt it`s YHWH with usual screed.
Still going at 0413 recheck, but off at 0423.

I had notified the WOR iogroup ASAP, which got this reponse from Walt
Salmanniw: ``Thanks, Glenn! That indeed is YHWH, but at a very poor
level into Victoria, BC, unlike a few days ago. Very low modulation.
Interesting, that remote Perseus SDR in Aberdeen, NJ is about as strong
or better than my reception. Don Moman's SDR is occupied. Whatever
happened to the 3 SDRs there? Now down to one only for a few weeks now.
Playing the "Satanic" sounding song at 0418. And gone at 0422. 73,
Walt`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640, June 5 at 0520 UT, KZLS ``Enid``, really east of
Hennessey to put more signal into OKC with its NNW/SSE direxional
pattern, unusual for an inland X-bander, in dead air. So I try nulling
it for access to WTNI or anything else, but still too much KZLS, which
makes me wonder if it`s still on 10 kW instead of 1, while WTNI may be
on 1 kW instead of 10! By 0540 UT KZLS has resumed talkmod (Glenn

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1 WBFM, June 4 around 1430 UT, this frequency occupied
by KFXI Marlow, talking about stuff concerning its county, Stephens.
It`s due south of Enid on US 81 betwwen Chickasha and Duncan. 100 kW
but not normally audible, even when KAMG-LP was off. Now with some
tropo it overcomes the KAMG dead air easily (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, June 4 at 1440 UT, K17JN-D, the 3ABN satellator in
Enid, is off the air. The best it could do for some months was
subchannels 1, 3 and 5, while 2, 4, and 6 were black/blank, while
originally all six were funxional. June 5 at 2250 UT I find the
carrier(s) on but with weaker than normal signal bar, still no program
transmissions (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 42, KBZC-LD is still unrepacked. With some regional
tropo enhancement, barely decoding June 4 at 1445 UT. Believe I saw a
Get TV bug on -3; while -5, -6 and -7 are all some kind of shopping.
Don`t you believe this is in Enid as licensed, really in OKC.

RF 20, KQCW is the only DX decoding; there is also a Bad signal on RF
45, probably either KOTV Tulsa or KSNW Wichita, altho it could be the
15 kW KOHC-CD in OKC itself which I think I have never IDed (Glenn

** ROMANIA. 11990, June 5 at 2313, RRI in Spanish ID, surprised to find
here, // 11800, and I think still on 11700 under RHC where it`s been
colliding. I thought 11700 & 11800 were the only two frequencies. EiBi
does not show 11990, but Aoki/NDXC does. However, HFCC A-19 shows four
frequencies for Spanish at 2300, not including 11990! --- 9700, 9760,
11700 and 11800, all for the full A-19 season, altho half of them might
have been alternates, with two matching azimuths. EiBi, however, does
show 11990 as an RRI frequency Sundays only at 0800-0900 in Romanian

** TURKEY. 9830, June 5 at 2305, VOT still on S7 and in German,
spurious transmission since English was not turned off before 2300

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1984 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday June 5 at
2100 on WRMI 9955; after IS & ID loop, less upcut than usual, just
missing ``This is Glenn Hau----``; good signal still there at 2127
wrapup. But simultaneous schedule on WBCQ 7490+v unconfirmable on a JBA
carrier both at start and finish, now in the summer noise doldrums.
Missed checking the 0100 UT June 6 airing on WRMI 7780.

Note that 1985 may be delayed as I am in process of getting a new
computer, and way behind in processing info (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 5970, June 5 at 0351, no signal from RCM, WEWN Spanish. Had
been reliable here at night and 12050 at day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

UNIDENTIFIED. 1230, June 5 at 0017 UT, WBBZ Ponca City is still OFF, so
I try again to ID some DX on this graveyard. At the moment there is a
heavy 2.0 Hz SAH, between a music station, suspected my closest KADA
Ada, and some talk station (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1450, June 5 at 2035 UT near Perry OK on I-35, two
stations mixing, one of which is certainly closest KGFF Shawnee OK,
making a SAH of about 190/minute or slightly over 3 Hz. In Enid it`s
KGFF vs KSIW Woodward, but now we are out of range from Woodward, so
what could it be? No 1450s in eastern OK, but the next closest must be
KQYX Galena KS, named for the wonderful lead mines in this SE corner of
Kansas, but address in nearby Joplin MO. IIRC, call KQYX used to apply
to some genuine Joplin station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5980, June 5 at 0350, open carrier at S9/+10. Nothing at
all is scheduled, but suspect it`s Greenville B left on the air between
TV Marti ending at 0300 and Radio Marti starting at 0700. No jamming
audible now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
