** BANGLADESH. 4750, Feb 12 at 1345, talk and song I would say is S
Asian, so presumed Bangladesh Betar, rather than other possibility
CNR1 Hailar --- should have ruled that out by // check to another CNR1
frequency. CODAR QRM swishing from both sides. And QRM from non-
Spanish 2-way on 4751.8-USB. Anyhow 4750 is the best Asian signal on
60m along with many JBA carriers corresponding to Tibet, East
Turkistan, China, India and peripheries, such as 4760 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [non]. 6090, Feb 13 at 0001, I`m trying again to hear the
alleged Radio Bandeirantes: one weak signal here on the Icom, can`t
tell language; 0007 I`ve switched to the JRC and there are two signals
mixing, the stronger one sounding more and more like Chinese by 0015,
i.e. CNR2 from Golmud. (My closest streetlight ignites with a wideband
RF noise burst at 0016; mostly clear sky but some orange clouds on the
sunset horizon.) By 0032 the otherlang is atop, and I think it is
Spanish rather than Portuguese. The 6090 situation is somewhat
clarified:

Wolfgang Bueschel reports Iran already on with IS at 2345 Feb 12.
We`ve had contradictory info about when VIRI`s Spanish broadcast start
--- 2320, 2350 or 0020, but it appears that 2350 is the winner.

We`ve also wondered whether the Bandeirantes on 6090 heard in Brasil
be a pirate and not a reactivation of the real station. And whether
report of it as ``RÃdio Livre`` which means ``Free Radio`` refer to it
as a pirate, or the name of a real program on RB?

Daniel Wyllyans has just answered that on HCDX: ``6090 RÃdio Livre
Bandeirantes --- Yes and no. Yes, the program is officially from RÃdio
Bandeirantes. No, TX is not the 10 KW Bandeirantes. Is another person
with 30 watts in 6090 MG state. 73 Daniel Wyllyans``

So even if that be on air at this hour, we are certainly not going to
hear it in NAm with China, Iran and sometimes even Anguilla also on
6090 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12300, Feb 12 at 1350, RHC harmonic 2 x 6150 still here at
S2-S5. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [and non]. 6075, Feb 12 at 1352 open carrier at S7-S9,
except for a brief noise burst; 1400 one tone and lively Chinese
programming including song, i.e. RTI as scheduled starting Chinese at
1400 via Kouhu site; but now there is also a second station talking
and making a SAH, i.e. CNR1 jamming. Or vice versa (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAJIKISTAN. 4765.059, Feb 12 at 1345, VP signal from something,
presumed Tajik Radio, Dushanbe. Offset to 4765.06 has been reported
recently by Gianni Serra, Roma; Wolfgang Bueschel on 4765.070; Anker
Petersen, Denmark, had R. Progreso, Cuba on 4765.06! But that would
never be on the air at this hour and when I do hear it in the 0130-
0500 span, it`s never off-frequency. Tajik is sometimes logged as
merely ``4765`` apparently by those not paying attention to detail.
From DXLD 18-11: ``Tajik Radio, which was reported by Kouji Hashimoto
and Wolfgang BÃschel, in the Feb 19-26 period variously as 4765.06,
4765.054, 4765.057, as in DXLD 18-09`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 11570, Feb 12 at 1455, Korean is S9-S7, VOA jingle.
This 14-16 broadcast is the sole station anywhen on 11570, 21 degrees
via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, carrying right on USward (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Feb 12 at 1355, RCM ID and start ``Salve Regina``
chant quickly cut off; by 1358, same is running on stronger 12050. So
WEWN is successfully emanating both Spanish transmitters today (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Not that it matter much at all, but this log was on Feb
10, not 11 as in original report; fixed: 27185, Feb 10 at 1915 on
caradio, someone local is transmitting a big hum on this prime CB
frequency (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [non]. 6090, Feb 12 at 0005, VP signal with M&W talk; I try
to divine whether it`s Brazuguese, as Mark Coady, Ontario, has again
assumed it`s Radio Bandeirantes. No, it sounds more like Chinese. I am
never monitoring at the same time and date as Mark; his was Feb 8 at
0002 and he heard RB even underneath Anguilla, which is not on now.
Recheck at 0027: now a stronger S7-S9 dead air or maybe JB modulated.
Both these fit for Aoki listings:
2055-0300 CNR2 Golmud 916 site; close to grayline
0020-0320 Iran Sirjan site in Spanish

But it also maintains R. Bandeirantes, SÃo Paulo, as 24 hours --- like
so many other long-gone LA stations.

But2, there could be at times a R. Bandeirantes on 6090. Rudolf Grimm
in SP state reports it Jan 29 at 1742 UT in the local daytime with a
program `Radio Livre`. He could not hear RB on MW 840 or the other
former SW frequencies 9645, 11925, but the timechex were correct and
the info current. It could have been a unauthorized pirate relay from
FM or webcast, as ZY SW pirates are proliferating, so why not? He says
RB had not been on the 49m frequency for three years.

By 0150, Anguilla has come up on 6090, PMS S9+20 with hum and squeal.
I`m certainly not going to hear anything else under her (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 11 at 1438, CRI Plus English relay is S9+20,
overmodulated, distorted and splattering. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba.

5910, Feb 12 at 0310, this CRI English relay is S9+30 but suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 11 at 0720, VON is on tonight, S9+10/20.

9690-, Feb 11 at 1915, silly ballgame from SPAIN with a LAH, so VON is
also on again here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1968 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
February 10 at 2155 the 2130 on WRMI 7780, fair.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 11 at 0230 on WRMI 5950, S9+20; but not even
a JBA carrier on // 9395, off? (by 0352 during Slovakia mailbag, it`s
S9-S9+10, and stronger than 5950).

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 11 from 0401 on Area 51 webcast. Also
presumably on WBCQ 5139.48 which was a JBA carrier at 0351.

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 11 at 0430 on WRMI webcast; at 0458 check,
9955 VP at S6-S7; after 0500 this week, webcast plays World Music.

Also confirmed Mon Feb 11 at 2353 the 2330 on WRMI 9955, S9S5; by 2359
lite jamming has ramped up. Last couple words of WOR are upcut by
music fill, as WRMI automation seems set up to overlap deliberately

** U S A. 3264.573, Feb 12 at 0001, JBA carrier vs storm noise from
western OK, as WBCQ is finally testing this transmitter again, first
tipped by Alan Pennington, UK to the WOR iog:

``WBCQ Monticello, Maine, USA testing 3265 kHz at present: "3265 kHz
on now with test transmissions. Reception reports to wbcq at wbcq dot
com please. Free Radio supreme here at WBCQ. Frozen north." (Allan
Weiner, WBCQ on Twitter 2010 UT) --- Continuous pop, rock, oldies on
3264.6 from 2020 tune-in, many repeated IDs finally heard at 2055,
good signal on SDRs in Rockport Maine (at 2020) and Newton, New
Hampshire (2035). Then talk show from 2100 (Financial Survival? re
7490 schedule). But not audible across here in Caversham, UK. 73, Alan
Pennington``.

Wolfgang Bueschel was also hearing it via remotes near WBCQ, the
frequency varying considerably. At 0149 I find it still on 3264.573
but also still a JBA carrier. After 0200 a trace of music; 0240 still
JBA carrier. Wonder how much power this is axually running, and what
type of antenna, gain? That could be asked of all WBCQ frequencies. Of
course 90m would have been much more useful in the quiet winter of
minimum storm noise, and minimum MUFs.

5130.49, UT Tue Feb 12 at 0156, WBCQ with `From the Isle of Music`
about to end, poor but better than // 7490.18. At 0157, 5130.49 cuts
to legal IDs by AW over and over, while FTIOM is still on 7490.18!
9330 is inaudible, off or propped out. At 0201-0202* sign-off
classical music on 5130.49 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7315 and much stronger 7385 are the active frequencies of
WHRI at 0308 and 0348 Feb 12, not 5920 or 7520 as on UT Sundays with
the Russian on the upper (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 27185, Feb 11 at 1915 on caradio, someone local is
transmitting a big hum on this prime CB frequency (Glenn Hauser, Enid
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 6020, Feb 10 at 0103, CRI English, 300 kW, 305 degrees
via ALBANIA has a LAH, and CCI from some other talk. Hard to make out
sounding similar but not synchronized, so wonder if CRI from another
site in English? It is prime-time for such self-QRM, as per HFCC, at
01-02 CRI is also via Kashgar, East Turkistan, 100 kW, 209 degrees but
supposed to be in Urdu, not English. There is such a double-English
CRI broadcast at this hour on 6180, via Habana and Kashgar. 6020 does
not work out as a possible leapfrog from Cuba at this hour (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6010, Feb 10 at 0058, weak music // 5990 CRI relay not quite
off yet, i.e. the leapfrog again over 6000 which this time is an open
carrier prior to 0100 English. By 0102 5990 is off, 6000 in suptorted
RHC English, 6010 also off. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 10 at 0655, RHC still AWOL from this frequency as
has been for several nights now, so what will happen with the
scheduled weekly Sunday Esperanto at 0700 on 6100? Still nothing: all
RHC 49m frequencies off. If Esp`o weren`t RHC`s least important,
lowest priority language, they could have put it on some other
transmitter and/or frequency, as has happened before contrary to
schedule. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15140, Sun Feb 10 at 1601, RHC Esperanto starting here on
unacknowledged frequency, as well as publicized 11760. Schedule
announcement at 1603 still claims first broadcast is at 0800 on 6100!
I seriously doubt they got 6100 back on the air just for that, but
zzzz unchecked. Previous weeks it has been at 0700 on 6100, contrary
to initial B-18 schedule, i.e. tacked on to end of English rotations.
During announcement of frequencies, deep fade at 1600 part, but I
think there was only one, i.e. not including 15140, which was added
months ago, other days only Spanish // 11760. Third broadcast to be
Sun 2330 on 15730, not confirmed lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 10 at 1514, CRI Plus relay in English is S9+30/40
but very suptorted; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15311, 15255, 14968, Feb 10 at 1521, only traces of a few of
the plus/minus 26.8 kHz spur multiples from RHC 15140. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690-, Feb 10 at 1650, no signal from VON QRMing SBG from
SPAIN, via UTwente SDR, so another Sunday without the new 1630-
English broadcast heard most other days of week, in clear on weekdays
when Spain does not start until 1900 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 6010.016, Feb 9 at 0710, JBA carrier, probably R.
InconfidÃncia, despite Aoki/NDXC listing as in a break 06-09 (and also
listing imaginary Mexico and probably same Colombia on 6010). See also
CUBA! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 6020, Feb 9 at 0025, CRI relay in English via ALBANIA
seems to be discussing how to say ``Get the show on the road`` in
Chinese; an idiom I assume cannot be translated literally.

There is also a LAH - low audible heterodyne on 6020. What could that
be? Only otherthing in EiBi is VOV-4 Vietnam. I suppose a trace could
be making it along grayline, and being off-frequency certainly fits
them. It`s 20 kW ND. DON`T YOU BELIEVE Brasil or Perà on 6020 still in
Aoki, both gone for YEARS! If RHC were on 6100 and 6060 at this hour,
a leapfrog of those could land on 6020 as I have previously heard
after 0500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non?]. 6080, Feb 9 at 0028, two weak carriers beating
from slightly different frequencies, one of them seeming Chinese.
Aoki/NDXC claims two within China are simulactive: until 0100, CNR1,
100 kW, 236 degrees via Golmud 916 site; and until 0530, PBS Hulun
Buir, 10 kW ND in Mongolian via Hailar. But also one other as 24h, R.
Marumby, Curitiba PR, Brasil, which may not be inactive, still in WRTH
2019 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Unlike English, RHC Spanish is still making SW frequency
announcements at certain hours, which don`t always mesh with reality
--- but what do those non-SWLs know back in the studio?

11760, Feb 9 at 0000 tune-in, onesuch is in progress; missed the first
part that I will try to catch again. `...13740, 11840, 9640, 5040. A
partir de las 0000: 13740, 11670, 11840, 11950, 11700, 9640, 6000`` -
-- but NOT the very frequency I am tuned to, 11760! 11670, 11700 and
11840 are all suptorted, plus weak 11830/11850 spurs, never announced.

11950 also on, but *not* // the others because it`s the separate `Mesa
Redonda` TV soundtrack hour, // 6000 only --- something the announcer
does not comprehend by mixing those two in with the others. BTW, this
is UT Saturday, altho EiBi and NDXC/Aoki claim 00-01 6000 // 11950 are
on air Tue-Fri only. Maybe the UT Sat shows are irregular, or
confusion local vs UT days? Another frequency announcement is at 0400,
but just caught it ending at 0402 on 6060.

I then resolve two mysteries others have reported!

6010, Feb 9 at 0022, two carriers, so is Colombia really reactivated
along with Brasil? I barely make out some Spanish talk so the
assumption would be Colombia --- but NO, it`s // 5990 CRI relay! Now,
I get it: 6010 is a leapfrog mixing product of 5990 over 6000 (Cuba
can make broad jumps, but LFMPs are supposedly more apt between nearby
frequencies.) This is possible only between 00 and 01 when both are on
the air (unless they forget to turn at both of them off).

The other could still be Brasil, as no other broadcaster, major or
minor is known active during this hour (DON`T YOU BELIEVE Radio Mil,
Mexico, still in Aoki/NDXC, which has been gone for many YEARS). To
confuse matters further, RHC has some Brazilian trying to speak
Spanish, i.e. Portunhol, I have also heard at other times; maybe an
unusual temporary guest.

5990 is S9+20/30, and 6000 is S9+10. Since they leapfrog, the two must
be at the same site, despite Aoki showing different coÃrdinates: 5990
CRI as La Habana, and 6000 RHC as TitÃn-QuivicÃn. This is because only
the CRI relays are in HFCC as registered by the ChiCom, but not
specifying which of the three real sites. EiBi also reflects this.

Harold Frodge also reported RHC on an unlisted frequency: ``CUBA: 6090
Radio Habana Cuba; 0405, 2/4; W in EE reading list of phone #s &
addresses; 0407+ RHC ID. SIO=2+52+; no sign of robustly bountiful Rev.
Barbie or dead Dr. Gene (Frodge-MI)``

6090: so I am checking this out too: Feb 9 at 0401, no Anguilla, but
fast SAH of about 15 Hz, talk and music mixing. Now I get it! 6090 is
another leapfrog mixing product as confirmed by // audio: 5910 CRI
relay over 6000 RHC English, another 90 kHz higher. Both must be
TitÃn-QuivicÃn site here too. Leapfrogs do not make any SAH as the
result is a single ``transmission``, which however could be off-
frequency if either fundamental be; so what else is on 6090 now?
Surely R. Amhara, ETHIOPIA. The 6090 Cuban mix could be heard anytime
between 03 and 05, the 5910 CRI hours in English, Cantonese. Checked
at 0407 for reverse leap on 5820 but nothing audible there.

Let this be a lesson: before leaping to conclusions about something
exotic or reactivated, if you hear Spanish or any RHC language on a
band where Cuban transmitters also exist, consider a mixing product!
Something`s always wrong at RHC --- and fun for us (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Feb 9 at 0030, RHC English is open carrier/dead air
except for a bit of scratchiness. Wiggle that patchcord! Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, Feb 9 at 0725, S9+10/20 of dead air except for some
hum; also 9535 dead at S9+10. Obviously RHC transmitters left on far
beyond sign-off time. I wonder if they were modulating earlier in
English or Spanish. 9535 is always quite weaker than 9640 here.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15311, 15283, 15255, 14997, 14969 approx., Feb 9 at 1351, JBA
28.6x kHz spurs barely detectable from RHC 15140.

Finally someone else reports these, Harold Frodge, Midland MI:
``15111.4, Radio Habana Cuba (presumed); 1545, 2/4; Just hints of
music; slightly drifty sig. 1942, still there & still on 15111.4; this
time with definite voice. Similar at 15168.8 so probably another 15140
RHC spur combo. âSomethingâs always wrong in Cuba.â Spurs, tornadoes &
meteor strikes. +++ 1933, 2/6; Same spur pair; distorted 15140 in
French; spur also on 15025 but not 15255`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Superfluous jamming discourtesy of the incompetent
DentroCuban Jamming Command, where something is always wrong:

5960, Feb 9 at 0713, pulse jamming vs nothing, maybe spur out of 5980s

6125, Feb 9 at 0404, intermittent pulse jamming stray vs Turkey
deadair

12035, Feb 9 at 1355, occasional pulse jamming stray QRM to Turkey

11915-11945, Feb 9 at 1420, Heavy jamming against 11930 Martà is
splattering out at least plus/minus 15 kHz, more than usual

11845, Feb 9 at 1424, residual pulse jamming still here against long-
abandoned Martà frequency; and also vs 11860 which is M-F only unlike
all other RM usage; DCJC had been turning off 11860 weekends, maybe
forgot today, but by 1757 the only jamming is around 11930 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 3950 & 3990, Feb 9 at 0034, JBA carriers vs QRhaM,
presumed PBS Xinjiang --- checking for these after hearing the usual
grayline quartet of higher carriers all correlating with same Urumqi
station, 4500, 4850, 4980, 5060. 3990 & 4980 are in Uighur, part of
the ChiCom brainwashing scheme. However, Aoki shows PBS Gannan also
running this hour on 3990.

7205, Feb 9 at 0036, is more than a carrier, Asian wailing at S5-S8.
This could also be Xinjiang in Uighur, but CRI Mongolian via Beijing
site also scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. See MALAYSIA [non]

** MALAYSIA [non]. 9835, Feb 9 at 1351, S8-S4 of Russian with flutter,
so definitely VIRIran, not VOM.

Ron Howard replied to my yesterday`s unID: ``Hi Glenn, On Feb 8,
checking at 1120, 1247 & 1347, noted clear frequencies for both 9835
and 11665; no hint of any station at all. In the past, I would have
been hearing decent Malaysian signals on both frequencies (9835
Sarawak FM & 11665 Wai FM). So per my recent monitoring, their
schedule has significantly changed during the period I normally
listen. Ron, California``

And Mauno Ritola, Finland, replied to that also on the WOR iog: ``Hi
Ron, I don't think it is a schedule change, but for some reason they
have difficulties in keeping the transmitters on the air. 9835 kHz has
been inactive for quite a while. 11665 kHz was in operation on
Thursday, but as you say not yesterday and also today off. Mauno``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 9 at 0718, VON S9+20 in African language about
Sierra Leone. Re my previous report of it missing, Dan Sheedy,
California replies:

Hi Glenn, just saw your 8 Feb 0653 non-log of VoN-7255. Oddly enough,
I was checking them out at 0623 8 Feb. & they were doing OK in Hausa,
so apparently their "doing OK" didn't last too long. Have a safe
weekend, good listening, & cheers from the beach. Dan`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 9965, Feb 9 at 1345, YL in Japanese, undermodulated with
some hum, i.e. Furusato no Kaze; just a trace today of +/- 70 kHz
spurs on 9895 & 10035 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 6125, Feb 9 at 0404, 0412 and 0428 chex, S9-S9+10 of dead
air vs some occasional pulse jamming strays. Voice of Turkey is
failing to modulate English to North America! Something`s always wrong
at Emirler but at least it`s not 0.7 kHz off-frequency.

Regarding my previous report of Turkey in German way past 0000 UT Feb
6: ``the sloppyrators sometimes don`t get 5960 turned off by 2355 when
English finishes, letting it run with the next language on the feed
which is not supposed to be on any SW frequency. If such lapses be
totally random, sooner or later it will happen on Saturday into UT
Sunday and clash with The Mighty KBC`` --- Jay Novello, Wake Forest
NC, replies Feb 6:

``Glenn, it already has, on several occasions, including this past
weekend when they didnât pull the plug until around 0050. I wrote to
Eric van Willegen at The Mighty KBC about it, and he replied:

`Yes, the VOT is not following perfectly the rules. The Germans will
contact them again; hopefully it will work this time. Fingers crossed
for Saturday. It's not that easy to find a clear frequency; in the
past we had Radio China and Cuba suddenly on top of us. Have a great
week and we see you Saturday```

Which is exactly why, when KBC was looking for a new 49mb frequency, I
strongly recommended against this one. There is more to frequency
management than looking for openings in HFCC.

12035+, Sat Feb 9 at 1353, VOT English is poor in `Letterbox` until
1401 right into `Turkish Cuisine`, S9-S5, but you would need perfect
reception and a recorder to copy the recipe. Occasional stray pulse
jamming QRM.

13685.704, Sat Feb 9 at 1424, VP music, gone at 1452 recheck. It`s VOT
eastward in Uighur at 1330-1426 per Aoki/NDXC; neither that nor EiBi
(nor HFCC of course) reveal it can be off-frequency from 13685. Might
not be noticeable on weekdays with WINB non-DRM carriers covering
13685-13690 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4724-USB // 8992-USB, Feb 9 at 0041, US military crypto
alfanumeric fonetik string with usual reverb and clix between
characters. EiBi calls these ``US Air Force Messages``, on six
frequencies all available 24 hours, the others being 6739, 11175,
13200 and 15016. But where are they, really? And are they significant
or mere exercise? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1968 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
February 9 at 1255 the 1230 on WRMI 9955, good S9. Not confirmed the
1531 Saturday via HLR 9485-CUSB, direct nor via UTwente. As Alan Gale
suggested, I also checked the Italy SDR during following semihour,
http://kiwisdr.briata.org:8073/
but not picked up there either. However, from England, Alan reports
this week:

``Hi Glenn, HLR was audible up until 1515 UT on 9485 kHz this
afternoon, but abruptly faded out here during Media Network Plus. I
switched to the Colle Sofia webSDR in Italy and World of Radio was
audible on there at 1530, though suffering a little splatter.

Interestingly though, it then faded in here again at 1550 UT and was
quite strong for the final 10 minutes. That was the first time that
I've heard it here on that frequency in weeks now, so that's a good
sign that propagation is improving as the days continue to lengthen.
I've attached a short mp3 of it. 73, Alan.`` Next:

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat Feb 9 circa 0105 when first checked, WBCQ
webcast, Allan Weiner political rant on `Worldwide`; At 0142 talking
about installing transmission line for the 500 kW, which is 9 inches
in diameter, looks like a pipe, to achieve 20 MW ERP out of the
pending #6 transmitter. Fuller report from John Carver:

``Tonight's show started I know not when. 7490 was nothing but noise
as was 9330. Waited a bit to see if something would start. Checked
5130 and the show was in progress. Found them in the middle of
political talk when I tuned in about 0105. A canned station ID is
broadcast every few minutes. Discussing the State of the Union address
at the moment. Harsh politics fade into the background and the talk
moves to the regular working man and the problems they have making a
living. Price of groceries. Price of non food items. States again to
never trust banks and get rid of one's credit cards. Also touches on
health care.

During a break Allan announces that they're broadcasting on 7490 and
9330. No mention of 5130 and no mention of what happened to the
militia program. Allan mentioned that they've started work on the new
transmitter so Allan and Angela are now in Maine. Mr. Transistor Norm
calls at 0135 chiding Allan for not being at the hamfest in FLA today.
Allan is excited about how well the transmitter project is coming
along. Some talk about fooling with the big transmission line to the
transmitter. Allan said that he and Angela would be back in FLA
sometime in March for awhile. He also predicted that radio will make a
comeback.

A dropped phone call prompts Allan to complain about getting a dozen
junk phone calls a day on his cellphone. Reading of emails at 0150
interrupted by a phone call from a gentlemen asking if there was an HD
shortwave radio available. Allan explained about DRM. Then into a
reading of the Free Radio News. Closing prayer at 0158. Program was
off the air at 0200. New program started then on 5130 and was not the
militia program. Didn't catch the name of the new program but it seems
to have something to do with professional wrestling. John, Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Feb 9 at 0407, WEWN Spanish is gone again. They must
be having horrible problems keeping this thing on the air, and
modulated.

12050, Feb 9 at 1354, WEWN is at least on the air but dead air, or
JBM? at S6-S2; 1405 fully modulating Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5005 & 5020, Feb 9 at 0715, JBA carriers, likely
EQUATORIAL GUINEA about to fade out, and SOLOMON ISLANDS starting to
fade in (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1850 UT February 9
