DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS update March 10:
including many DST changes for Cuba, USA

** BRAZIL. 9666.720, March 10 at 0713, RVM with S4-S7 of secularish
music, representing ZY on 31m, altho sometimes I have a JBA carrier
9819+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, March 10 at 0716, RHC only S4-S7 of dead air while all
other frequencies are off already. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.617v, March 9 at 2142, today`s R Cairo check via
UTwente: very strong but extremely suptorted with hum, awful, can`t
even be positive it`s in English. Something`s always egregious in
Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2129)

** ETHIOPIA. 7110, March 10 at 0400, another check for anything but
the INTRUDER, R. Ethiopia which has been here for months, but Robin
Harwood, Tasmania, had reported something European in French. All I
hear now is incomprehensible African language, presumably Amharic,
with the ID, ``Yeh ---`` something, as in WRTH. No French or Slavic.
No second station, no QRM except occasional adjacent SSB QRhaM; fading
down a lot by 0445 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2129)

** TURKEY. 5960, March 9 at 2316, VOT VG signal and mod unto UTwente
this time, with `Feeling Supreme` about natural remedies against pain
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2128 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday March 9
at 2200 on (7490.1v) webcast -- BUT NO SIGNAL on 7490 direct or to
Virginia, Missouri SDRs; yet 9330 VG and even 6160- could be
detected. From next Wednesday at 2100, even more daysorbtion.

Also confirmed UT Thursday March 10 after 0130 on WRMI 5010 VP, 9395
S9/S7 directs.

Note: imposition of useless DST March 13 will force several WRMI
airings to one UT hour earlier, viz.:
Fri 1430 9955
Sat 0130 9395
Sun 2230 5950
Tue 0030 9395 - and 9455?
Tue 2230 9955
Thu 0030 9395 - and 9455?
All other airings on 5010, 5850, 7730, 7780 stay at the same UTs

All airings on WBCQ will shift: Sat 0400 4790, Mon 0300 6160-, Wed
2100 7490+, we hope.

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7780, March 10 at 0200, WRMI has replaced Argentina relay
with Radio Svoboda = R Liberty in Russian of the USAGM, which refuses
to put it on any of our SW transmitters closer to Russia, e.g. ideally
situated in Germany. Continues for the hour all-talk, S9 into UTwente;
JBA S4-S6 into Pskov, Russia, SDR, next to Estonia near the western
border; someone in Arlington VA is already monitoring same, so I camp
on him. Meanwhile, Argentina remained on 5800. This deal was prompted
by crowdfunding campaign, like VOA at 2105 on 15770, but Jeff
indicates he`ll keep doing it no matter what.

0259 WRMI ID, 0300 into surprise beepery, seems unlike SW Radiogram
but only going by ear. I never hear any voice announcements, but the
sound changed at 0313; 0329 cut to music and WRMI ID; 0330 into a
gospel huxter with a heavy accent from Brampton, Ontario. That would
be Soteriah International Ministry, daily except UT Sunday. The
beepery came about without any notice or publicity that I am aware of.
I ask Jeff White and Kim Elliot about this, and they reply:

``Glenn: Actually it's a test that Kim prepared in four different
modes. The content is an article in Russian about the 75th anniversary
of the Russian service of the VOA. Jeff``

``Testing text modes in Russian. Via SDR in Russia, signal is too weak
to understand more than the occasional voice word. But our slower text
modes are decoding 100%. Screenshot attached. Kim``

I check again next night UT March 11 on 7780: again R. Svoboda opening
with its long-unheard interval signal. Not another beepery at 0300,
back to R. Slovakia International, in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2129)

** U S A. 9390-9400, March 10 at 0709, heavy wideband noise at S8-S9,
almost blotting out TOMBS on WRMI 9395; almost as if deliberate
jamming, and not the sound of DRM nor Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9517-USB, March 10 at 0711, weak 2-way, in Spanish?,
intruding (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0356 UT March 11
