Best wishes and 73, Alan Roe

** ALGERIA. 17600, March 31 at 1445, fair signal, Ifrikya FM still
here in A24. Full sked, needlessly long, one hour at a time, with all
familiar frequencies, maybe no changes at all from B23:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98, March 30 at 2359, algo here into Argentine
SDR, gone at 0000* March 31 - normal closing time for LRA36: trouble
is, mostly absent during random chex previous sesquihour, as in
previous report, supposedly from *2200 on Saturdays only (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ASCENSION. 9440, March 31 at 0630, S8/9+20, African language
mentions Gaza, BBC. Hausa now sked 0629-0700, 250 kW, 65 degrees. See
also UKQOGBANI [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 5910-, March 31 at 0632, no signal from Alcaraván Radio.
Has anyone heard it lately? B23 had been blocked 03-05 by CRI via
Cuba, but that`s reverted to 9790 for A24. HFCC shows nothing else
entire night hours on 5910; but ``reserved`` 24 h for IRDR via Vatican
placeholder (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Re yesterday`s report: ``As mentioned several weeks ago, RHC
Arabic is Sundays only (French is Monday to Saturday). Temporary
situation? Right now (1808) [March 31] Arabic is aired on 15140.
Jean-Michel Aubier, France`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140 // better 11760, Sunday March 31 at 1520, weekly
Esperanto from RHC reconfirmed, both only poor to fair (Glenn Hauser,

** EAST TURKISTAN. 17735, March 31 at 1445, Chinese dramatic
narration, S8/S9 with flutter. HFCC A24 shows CRI in Chinese at 13-16,
500 kW, 308 degrees via Kashgar for western Europe, but carries on
well USward. From the land of imperialist ChiCom genocide against
Uyghurs and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 11590, March 31 at 1456, S6/S8 in Turkic language with
keyword ``Radiosa``, address partially pronounced in English but can`t
copy reveal. A24 HFCC shows KTWR in Kazakh, daily 1445-1500, 250 kW at
305 degrees. Beware, some `KTWR` broadcasts are really via Madagascar,
but apparently not this one (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, March 31 at 1520, NO signal from V of
Martyrs Korea; had been extremely reliable from secret site, must have
moved for A24. I have queried HQ, WTF,K, no point in even asking about
site. WRTH 2024 frequency page 722 shows TWN as if this were certain;
page 554 under KOREA SOUTH says 11620ust - which means Taiwan, exact
site unknown. However, header mentions only sites Kununurra and
Tashkent, but all other broadcasts tagged tac. Some continue to claim
this is Uzbekistan as in Aoki, not EiBi, but I say over and over, Uz
is unbelievable propagationally here in deep North America. Editors,
don`t you dare file this log under Uzbekistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 31 at 0634, S9+10 direct, noise blob is back. No
trace of any program audio if it were mixing by ORTM, nor externally
jammed. Last night there was nothing; sometimes ORTM alone OK (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13690, March 31 at 0645, English at S9+20/30, SSOB.
New frequency for RNZP, per HFCC at 06-10, 50 kW each at 325 and 35
degrees. But own sked shows Pacific only = 35 degrees, and at
0559-0858 only, preceded by 17675, proceeded by 11725 - and then from
1259, 7440 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Heavy tropo blob over OK and vicinity, March 31 at 1511
UT, so DTV bandscan finds lots of BAD signals on `empty` channels; RF
28 decoding with ION, so KTPX Okmulgee. RF14 not decoding but PSIP
label 8-1 ABC barely visible; and a BAD signal on RF19 which is
extremely unusual vs KAUT OKC, our only ATSC-3 signal which I can`t
see or even detect via the ATSC-1 STB. RF 22, KOKI ``23`` Tulsa also
in briefly.

RF 14, 8-1, ABC is surely KTUL Tulsa, which also has the same
5-channel lineup on RF 24 which is blocked here by KOKH ``25`` OKC.
Rabbitears.info shows 24 is axually a lowpower relay in McAlester,
which is roughly 75 miles to the south - so why in the world does it
not have its own callsign?? IIRC, KTUL used to be on RF10 but got rid
of yuk VHF.

RF 19 must be KOTV Tulsa, which we are much more likely to see on RF
26 --- NO! 19 KOTV is really a low-power relay also in McAlester: same
question as for KTUL. No way that is going to mess up KAUT OKC, but
there are no full-powers elsewhere in OK on RF 19, just a translator
in Altus. Beyond that would have to search/guess it`s from adjacent
KS, MO, AR or TX (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, March 31 at 1459, horrible roarer still here
in A24, S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SLOVAKIA [non]. 15769.96 approx., March 31 at 0650, RSI in Spanish,
S7/S9, off-frequency says my NRD, unusual for WRMI. But UTwente at
1652 check shows only 15769.997. Yes, WRMI-9 with System H daily at
0630-0700 RSI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, March 31 at 1447, REE Spanish, S9/+5, confirmed on
new NAm frequency for A24, ex-9690, which was totally useless over an
all-day path, they never seem to figure out, B-season after B-season.
Now we must hope that 17855 will hold up at least until 2230 over
partial night-path English M/W/F at 2200. Now only stronger signal on
band is Martisky on 17865. REE also on weaker 15520 for ME. For Af
registered alternatives 15360, 15385, 15390 none confirmed yet (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 13635, March 31 at 0643, S7/S9 of plaintive flutish music.
TRT Turkish now A24 sked 06-13, SSOB except for NZ. 500 kW, 310
degrees from Emirler for W Europe, but NAm is directly beyond. 13635
had been the 1330 English frequency in B23, now 1230 on 17620 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K Q O G B A N I [non]. 9915 & 9410, March 31 at 0626 & 0630,
BBCWS VG on reactivated traditional channels for A24, 9915 slightly
better at S8/9+5 direct, news headlines on halfhour. Nothing on 12095.
Latest HFCC as of March 31 at 1605, is still dated March 27! 9915 is
scheduled 06-07 only, half-power 125 kW, 65 degrees from ASCENSION. So
is 9410, but 27 degrees; and BBC English on 9410 also at 05-06; and
via PHT Philippines at 10-12, 250 kW at 200 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO SCHEDULE, now fully updated for

on WRMI 9955, S9/+15 into Maryland SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 31 from 0329 the 0315v on WA0RCR, 1860

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN. 15474.8 approx., March 31 at 1451, VP S5 algo. Such
offfrequenciness smax of Tashkent, and sure`nuff. HFCC shows `15475`
ENC with unspecified programs in Korean, Japanese, at 1300-1357,
1430-1500, 100 kW at 68 degrees from TAC. Aoki & EiBi had nothing on
15475 in B23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VATICAN. 9710, March 31 at 0628, S6/S9 liturgy in listed Ukrainian,
VR registered 0605-0700 Sundays only. At 0638 found same on 11815,
S4/S7. To my ear, the ``harmony`` sounds off-key. HFCC shows 9710 250
kW at 54 degrees; 11815 250 kW, 62 degrees from SMG (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. 21490, March 31 at 1442, JBA signal is the OSOB. Nothing
in A24 HFCC as of March 27. In B23, EiBi & Aoki had CNR1 jamming and
SOH at 23-15: of course would never be in any HFCC. Maybe, tho
propagation unlikely at this hour. Jammer site could well be western
`China` for skip distance into more populous east (Glenn Hauser, OK,
