update for non-DST in Europe;
non-DST in North America will be Nov 5


Hi Glenn, My latest Hitlist update.

1) Updated UTC offset details for start of DST (24 September) in New
Zealand (RNZ)
2) Updated UTC offset details for end of DST (29 October) in Germany
(HCJB Deutsch), Greece (V of Greece), Romania (R Romania Int), Spain
3) Canada - BVB: Updated link to new B23 frequencies.
4) Germany - R Elektra: removed entire entry, domain no longer exists
5) Netherlands - R Delta Int: Updated links to RDI frequency and
programme pages
6) Spain - REE: Updated link to frequency page for new B23 schedule
7) USA - WRMI: removed link to an old (no longer updated) Facebook

The next update is scheduled for early November (for end of DST in
Americas) Best wishes and 73, Alan Roe

** ALGERIA. 6040, Oct 29 at 0622, JBA something new here for B23.
Latest HFCC dated Oct 27 shows TDA Ouargla at 03-07, 300 kW at 210

21550 nor any other 13m channel B23 for TDA in HFCC, and indeed
nothing there Oct 29 at 1505, tho JBA carrier 21551.2 probably
receiver birdie (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, UT Sunday October 29 the Saturday
broadcast from circa 1800 is *still* on the air at further chex of
Argentine SDRs, at 0023; 0103 about Oct 29 being an anniversary of
Base Marambio; and how they had a special broadcast on Friday Oct 20
for the 44th anniversary of LRA36. May I suggest it is rather lame to
rely so much on anniversary dates for programming ideas, especially if
they not be multiples of 5 or even 10? Still at 0110 but any further
monitoring here is interrupted by a series of thunderstorms. As in
last report, LRA36 had ``re-signed-on`` at 2306, presumably playing
back the 1800 broadcast, but until?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749 USB, Oct 29 at 0314 UT, S9 marine weather by YL voice
in French, my first log this season of Canadian Coast Guard MW
broadcasts. https://dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm shows the latest
transmission on 2749 starts at 0240 from VCS-21, 1500 watts, Halifax
NS, but not flagged as bilingual. DST is still in effect, but never
clear to me whether these stay at same local clock time or same real Z
time. Nothing heard now or yet on 2598 USB, from the further
Newfoundland area (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Oct 29 at 0642, RHC overtime, S3/S5 about bloqueo,
tiresome Spanish blaming that for their own incompetent Commie
government. Maybe Sunday Esperanto followed at 0700? Something`s
always wrong at RHC; zzz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, Oct 29 at 1459, still pulse jamming here on
R. Martí A23 frequency just vacated; while B23 channel, 13820 is in
dead air until 1500+ some music and ID, way atop jamming if any which
was never turned off completely during A-season (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 11760, Oct 29 at 1500, RHC in Esperanto, but 15140 is weak
with no modulation audible. Opening sked recitation still imagines at
1600 on 11760 only, which may become true next week when as a running
dog of Yanqui imperialism, Cuba goes off DST same date. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21485, Oct 29 at 1504, JBA carrier as I check for B23
newness. HFCC shows 1430-1600 it`s ISS 250 kW 135 degrees in Apd
language by JRC; is that unclear? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 21640, Oct 29 at 1505, something JBA. HFCC of Oct 27 for
B23 shows new frequencies for the TA boatrace!

21640 1500 1600 11SE,36S,46NW,81S ISS 250 240 0 207 1234567 291023
131123 D 17400 Fra F TDF TDF 4328 MiniTra
but rotating 17 degrees further clockwise for final week:
21640 1500 1600 11SE,36S,46NW,81S ISS 250 257 0 217 1234567 141123
201123 D 17400 Fra F TDF TDF 4329 MiniTra

Plus another hour and frequency for the first biweek+:
17800 1700 1800 11SE,36S,46NW,81S ISS 150 250 0 217 1234567 291023
151123 N 17400 Fra F TDF TDF 4086 MiniTra

No more listings for 15300 & 13735 where I routinely unheard them
today after 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13755, Oct 29 at 0639, RNZP on new frequency, only
S6/S7, ex-11725 which was always a blaster. Now sked 0559-1258,
preceded by 17675 from 2259, followed by 7390 until 1650 of which I
have a JBA carrier at 1507 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17755, Oct 29 at 1509, JBA presumed REE for Africa and
nothing on 17775 for B23; also still 17715 for S America slightly
better; but 9690 this early useless for N America. Propagation 101:
they don`t get the need for at least two bands, higher and lower for a
long timespan partly all day, partly mostly night. That leaves 12030
best for us in the morning, S6/S7 despite off the back toward ME;
dispensable sports report now from Fórmula 1 to baloncesto (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 13635, Oct 29 at 1417, VOT English is JBA on new frequency
for B23 from 1330, ex-1230 A23 on 15450; ex-1330 last B-years on 12035
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2214 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday October 29 at 0000 on WRMI 9955, S9/+10 over lite Cuban pulse
jamming into Maine SDR.

Not confirmed UT Sunday October 29 between 0300 and 0605 on WA0RCR,
1860 AM, MO into nearby SDR; nominal time 0315. This Week in Amateur
Radio seemed to go on forever; I should catch WOR if I check at least
once every 25 minutes. One ham radio news item was about the SAQ
upcoming Oct 24 transmission.

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

** VANUATU. 9960, Oct 29 at 0633, no signal detected from RV; but I`m
on interior randomwire due to T-storms. Manuel Méndez, Spain, was
getting it direct presumably longpath this date at 0552-0658* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 6195, Oct 29 at 0624, S6/S7 in French. B23 HFCC shows BBC
via SMG at 0600-0629, 250 kW at 234 degrees; also English at 05-06,
195 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 29 from 0302
UT, vs hi storm noise level, on the R75 with loop: 531, 774-2, 855-2,
891, 1098, 1107, 1116, 1125, 1134 ---

AND 1548 kHz at 0309, much stronger than the others but no audio-ible;
slight fades unlike something local. Right on 1548.00 to my ear. The
only two bigsigs on 1548 in Eurasia are R. Farda, 600 kW via Kuwait;
and TWR Europe, 500 kW via Pridnestrovye, but mwlist, WRTH Update and
EiBi show both on air only in local evenings, not mornings.
Nevertheless possibly one of them testing, and no signal at next check
circa 0325.

Another TA bandscan at 0321: 585, *684, 693, 774-2, 837, 855-2, 891,
1008, 1098, 1107, 1305; and something offset below 1494, nothing
listed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9700, Oct 29 at 0635, S2/S3 jazz? HFCC B23 shows both
Turkey and Japan; or Cuba never in HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1956 UT October 29
