** CUBA. 770, June 7 at 0535, YL song in Spanish has just faded up
replacing WABC which faded out [see USA]. Immediately matched to 5025,
so it`s Radio Rebelde, 10 kW in Las Tunas-Victoria (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 9570, June 6 at 1351, CRI relay in music, distorted.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 6000, June 7 at 0559, RHC English is JBM/suptorted; 6060 is
off as usual; 6100 undermodulated but sufficient at S9+30; 6165 S9/+10
but JBM. 5040 had been VG S9+20/30 but just now to dead air and off;
12200 at 0601 is a JBA carrier, 2 x 6100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. UNIDENTIFIED. 9155, June 7 at 1051, another mystery open
carrier, S9+10/20. 9200 is audible too but a JBA carrier now, probably
the SOH/CNR1 radio war. I try to be sound asleep during this
unfamiliar daypart. O, Aoki shows:

``9155 0955-1050 CUB Cuban Spy Numbers Spa Bejucal 1246`` – days =
Sun/Mon/Wed/Fri and this is Friday. We know these transmissions
include dead air, and this one is on a minute overtime (Glenn Hauser,

** MEXICO. 940, June 7 at 1112, tropical music from N/S, 1114 maybe ID
just at our earliest sunrise, but too much splash from local 960 KGWA.
There are no US SS along this axis, and very likely XERKS Reynosa,
Tamaulipas, 1/1 kW, with a romántica format. Some other 940s have left
for FM, per IRCA Mexican log, such as XEYJ in Coahuila, but not
including XEQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1310, June 7 at 1103, choral Mexican NA loops between S and
SSW; 1105 announcement by super-hype voice actor, probably full ID but
just too much QRM. From direxion, timezone and power, most likely is
XETIA in Guadalajara (as in tapatía), but lesser stations also in
Taxco, Monterrey and Puebla if not the CP in Querétaro. Then it`s
overcome by another SS from east/west, must be Unitedstatesian, i.e.

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, June 7 at 0031 UT, music segués on strong signal,
must be semi-local WBBZ Ponca City reactivated, as of UT June 6 since
it was certainly not on the day before. First noted off May 27
following storms and flooding so that`s 11 days lost, during which I
did not gain much luck definitely DXing on this graveyard. Yes, at
0048 UT, ``Thanks for staying with us, Sunny 104.7 moved to 1230, with
Delilah on the air every evening`` – that change happened quite a
while ago as I previously commented; while sibling station really on
104.7 is now something else. Continues with some PSAs (Glenn Hauser,

** PHILIPPINES. 9794.976, June 7 at 1055, JBA off-frequency stands out
in a USB 1-kHz-step bandscan (my usual method). Soon recognize ``Jesus
Saves`` IS of FEBC, interspersed with IDs? unreadable maybe English;
1100 switch to other theme music and tonal language. Aoki/NDXC shows
it`s an hour in Vietnamese from the Iba site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1985 contents: Antarctica,
Australia, Bhutan, Brasil, Canada, China, Congo DR, Cook Islands,
Cuba, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Grenada, Guinea, India,
Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, North America, Puerto Rico, Romania, USA;

WORLD OF RADIO 1985 monitoring: confirmed first US SWBC, Friday June 7
at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S4-S8; tsk, I myself intuned a few seconds too
late to evaluate any upcut.

Also confirmed UT Saturday June 8 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 vs
storm/noise level, fair, no upcut following Ian ID (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 5890, June 6 at 0415, WWCR is S9+10 of dead air except for
some hum, about same level as modulated 5935; at 0453, 5890 is off and
5935 has declined to VP level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, June 7 at 1045, WTWW-1 is S9+10/20 of dead air instead
of SFAW; for quite a while now it had been merely undermodulated
(Glenn Hauser, OK, dx listening digest)

** U S A. 770, June 7 at 0533 UT, WABC ID in passing amid adstring.
Not often makes it here, 1300+ miles from NYC, with the KKOB Santa Fe
230-watt filler more likely. WABC soon fades out completely as music
fades up, matched to Rebelde, Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 1310, June 7 at 1106, noticias and La Caliente ID in
passing, looping E/W, just faded up over a real Mexican [q.v.]. NRC AM
Log shows it`s our closest to the west, KZIP Amarillo TX, U1
1000/88/500 watts psra, where they know how to spell hot (Glenn

UNIDENTIFIED. 9610-9630, June 7 at 0348, rapid clicking of OTH radar
right smack dab in the middle of the 31m broadcast band --- but
luckily(?) no broadcasters are audible in this range (Glenn Hauser,
