** BRAZIL. 9633.99, June 27 at 0035, Brazuguese talk from R. Voz
Missionária, which has sunk to a new low. Nominal 9665, for months has
been about halfway down to 9664, or circa 9664.4, but now below 9664.0
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 11100, June 27 at 1349, Chinese JBA, CNR1 jammer.
11120, June 27 at at 1349, CNR1 jammer, S2-S3 quite stronger than
11460, June 27 at 1349, CNR1 jammer much stronger still at S7-S9.
12190, June 27 at 1350, JBA carrier, another SOH frequency jammed by
the ChiCom (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, June 27 at 0020, CRI Spanish relay is here on wrong
frequency instead of vacant 5990! Talking about China, obviously not
RHC, later music and 0032 Chinese lesson for Spanish. // 15120 is JBA.
Second harmonic on 12000 is a bit better with // music JBA at 0047.
But that`s not all ---
6000, June 27 at 0020, a much softer-sounding signal under CRI but not
that much weaker since it`s making a heavy SAH of 288/minute = 4.8 Hz.
Hard to make out its audio which should be RHC English; that // 6165
is off so no way to compare. It really sounds more like Spanish but
not // 11760; of course an English broadcast would include some
Spanish words and/or accents. Something`s always wrong at RHC: they
are running two transmitters and two different programs on the same
frequency! But not so on 12000, only CRI heard. Kudos for coming up
for something new to be wrong about. 6000 self-imposed collision still
going at 0050 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 4765, June 27 at 0046, R. Progreso is still/again missing. Is
the transmitter permanently broken? Somethng`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 7255- & 9690-, June 27 at 0620, VON on neither its primary
nor alternate frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 23, June 26 at 1453 UT, KSBI OKC at the margins of
breakup as usual with no tropo enhancement, so I photo an example:
Between breakups I detected PSIP IDs for most of the extra channels:
52-2 Bounce, 52-3 Laff, 52-4 ???, 52-5 Escape (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1987 monitoring: NOT confirmed Wednesday June
27 at 2100 on WRMI, since yet again, 9955 is not on the air. Other
WRMI 9395 is good with RAE; 9455 not on either. At 2102:40 a couple
split-second pips as if 9955 trying to turn on. I`ve listened to
enough noise by 2106, but leave a receiver on 9954-USB from which by
2124 I notice the carrier has come on and with WOR VP.
7490+, Wed June 27 at 2100 simulcast on WBCQ is apparently on with WOR
but JBA in summer noise; too bad it`s not // on super 9330 this
NOT confirmed, UT Thursday June 27 at 0114 the 0100 WOR, since WRMI is
still absent from 7780 as it was at earlier 0015 check. Next:
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
Also check 9330 WBCQ for unscheduled airings during testing phase.
Next WORLD OF RADIO 1988 should start airing Friday at 2200 on WRMI
[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. 7780, June 27 at 0015 & 0114 chex, this WRMI is off, while
7730 & 7570 are nominal.
BTW, I often still find a JBA carrier on 5800 such as at 0030 June 27,
presumably a low-power test from WRMI which has registered this
frequency available 24 hours at 100 kW to a 181-degree antenna; but
Jeff doesn`t want to tell us any more about it. On other occasions
there has been definite WRMI audio on it, such as // 5950 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330.00, June 26 at 2058, WBCQ-6 is on with music at S9+10
past 2100, not // 7490+ where WOR is outgoing but hardly incoming.
9330.00, June 27 at 0026, an old `AWWW` I recall with Tom Barna
hosting phone calls with hum, including someone who, then, said 9330
was ``inaudible in the Catskills``. Here and now, 9330 is S9+40/50+
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LLSTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1190, June 26 at 0607, RCC talk dominating at S9+20, then
fades. Got to be KDMR Kansas City MO, U2 5000/500 watts, EWTN
affiliate, but NOT // 11610 WEWN. The only other Catholic/EWTN on 1190
is in WV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1210, June 26 at 0606 UT, `Beyond Reality Radio` starting
for another night, i.e. 50 kW daytimer WJNL Kingsley (Traverse City)
MI, and with usual SAH of about 3 Hz vs KGYN or WPHT. The third night
in a row I have caught this cheater at my bedtime --- of course, if
it`s doing it at 0606 UT, it`s also doing it all night.
Official FCC SS/SR times for WJNL in June are: 0030-0900 UT. In July
extended to -0915. Still have not seen anyone else reporting this,
after my two previous logs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
