** AUSTRALIA. 7530, Dec 14 at 1501, RBA hint of Kookaburra, English
ID, a bit of Japanese? and then Korean, S7 to S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 278 kHz, Dec 14 at 0717, beacon NM and dash: 500 watts from
Matagami, Quebec. Matagami is in a remote off-road area near 78 W/50
N, NNE of Rouyn-Noranda.

332 kHz, Dec 14 at 0723, beacon QT and dash: 1000 watts from Thunder
Bay, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13765, Dec 14 at 1441, RHC-FM at S9+10, Spanish almost clear
with F# tone, first one found today out of 13700-AM transmitter. At
1454 after breakfast I hunt the others, approx.: 13830, 13892, 13952,
14020-trace, 13636, 13570, 13505, 13442-trace (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. The Enid market has two new FM stations run by Chisholm
Trail Broadcasting, and they are licensed to the next two towns down
the Trail.

106.3, Dec 13 at 1940 UT, ``The new 106-3, The Wolf, Certified True
Country`` and variations on that non-ID. Dec 14 at 1602 legal ID
``KWOF, Waukomis-Enid, the new 106-3, The Wolf, True Country``, etc.
This implies that country on parent station 107.1 KNID North Enid is
*not* ``true``!

FCC map shows the tower is axually in Waukomis, 36-12-59 N, 97-54-54
W, just west of speedtrap US 81, 6 kW ERP H&V at 100 meters HAAT; and
the 60 dbu contour reaches only unto mid-Enid, but it`s a local-
quality signal here, blocking a possible FM DX frequency. Original
call KWEO probably never made it on air, until they decided how to
brand this thing.

97.7, Dec 14 at 1551 UT, ``New classic rock station in town, kicks-ass
97-7, The Hawk``, etc. 1600 UT ``Soaring over Hennessey and Enid, 97-7
KHRK, The Hawk``. Original call for this was KHEO, probably never made
it to air. This is only 3.9 kW H&V at 100 m HAAT, 36-12-59 N, 97-54-54
W --- guess what, exactly the same coordinates as KWOF Waukomis! 60
dbu contour barely covers Enid, but local quality signal here.
Goodbye, any DX on 97.7.

Not sure exactly how long these have been on air, as there has been
absolutely no local publicity/advertising/newspaper coverage about
them. I expect all are automated out of the KCRC/KNID CTB building on
Willow in Enid next to the three 1390 towers in a row. Listening to
both the better part of an hour, *no* commercials heard, just music
and promotional non-IDs at every break (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130.48, UT Fri Dec 14 at 0000, WBCQ is on tonight, with
`Hour of the Time`, deceased Bill Cooper giving his earthly contact
info; good luck! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950 // 9395, Dec 14 at 0002, WRMI with Oldies music;
following the very brief stint Supreme Master TV had this hour on
5950; instead of resuming RFI English via WRN, its also too-brief
predecessor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505.056V, Dec 14 at 0222, WRNO in English, undermodulated
S9+10, frequency offer than usual, but as I measure it on BFO, slides
down closer to 7505.00 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Dec 14 from 0645:
531, 549, 576, 585, 612, 621, 639, 666, 738, 747, 774*, 801, 837, 846
(2 --- one of them Kiribati TP?), 882, 909, 936(2), 954(6 kHz from
local), 999, 1017, 1026, 1035, 1044*, 1053, 1089, 1098, 1125(2). (By
now it`s 0708 as I doze off and undoze:) 1134(2), 1305(2), 1314, 1413
(2), 1485(2), 1503*, 1521, 1539(2), 1575, 1584(2), 1602. *=stronger
ones; tried for audio on some but no go. (2)=at least two carriers
beating. Quite a haul.

Then at 0715 I check LW to find: 162, 180, 198(2), 216, but some of
those could be beaconish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, Dec 12 at 0657, JBA music // 6000, i.e. RHC English X
2. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13764 & 13636, Dec 12 at 1506, RHC-FM spurs out of 13700-AM;
also further pairs weaker outwards, all approx. circa 64 kHz
multiples: 13833 & 13572; 13897 & 13505; 13438-trace. At 1540 the
closest peak is now about 13769, still VG S9+10. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Dec 13 at 0133, RHC is S9+10/20 of dead air instead of
scheduled French. Toujours, quelque chose erronà à RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165 undermod // 6000 moremod, Dec 13 at 0134, RHC English
already running presumably from 0100 contrary to *0200 wintersked. You
never know what the configuration will be later: at 0526: 6000 & 6165
English, 6060 off, 6100 & 5040 & 11840 Spanish; 12000 JBA carrier;
11700 VP algo.

At 0627: 12000 JBA carrier; 6100 poor now in English; 6165 better,
6000 S9+20, 5040 all in English; and 6060 is still off. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13780, Dec 13 at 1429, RHC open carrier/dead air at S9+10 but
flanked by a panoply of raspy spur peaks approx. plus and minus 3 kHz
multiples between 13753 and 13802. No FM spurs out of 13700 at this
time. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 800, Dec 13 at 1407 UT, KQCV OKC is off! I hear
an ID in passing sounding like ``WBUL``; the closest fuzzy match in
the NRC AM Log is WVAL, Sauk Rapids MN, 2600/850 watts U4. Credible,
since 830 WCCO is still in. No sign of XEROK on 800 either.

Trying to pull more of WVAL or somethings in absence of KQCV, but it
cuts on at *1415 JIP gospel huxter, as if 1415 were its proper sunrise
in December, which is really 1330 UT (Jan: 1345 UT) --- but KQCV is
semi-local here day & night, 2500/1000, psra 38 watts (what`s the
point of a psra much lower than your night power?) IIRC, KQCV`s
pattern is out of whack with an STA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 11815.717, Dec 12 at 1543, VOT in Turkish talk, S5-S8
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1960 monitoring: confirmed Wed Dec
12 at 1055 the 1030 on WRMI 5950, fair. Also confirmed, Wed Dec 12
from 2200:01, S9-S7 on WRMI 9955 following IS & ID loop; same time on

Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, Dec 12 at 2100, WRMI with Supreme Master TV on
extended sked, discussing first-nations regalia, S9-S6. Sked grid
shows this and 7570 both new and extension of 15770:
11-14 7570 at 315 degrees
14-20 15770 at 44 degrees (ex-87; so much for sub-Saharan Africa)
21-24 9455 at 160 degrees
But no longer on 9395 at 23-24 M-F or 5950 at 00-01
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Dec 13 at 1510, hearing nothing on 9475, I check here
to find WTWW-1 still on night frequency with PPPP. But no WTWW-2
Xmasmx on 5085, which had been on late into the night (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5009.673, Dec 13 at 1512, JBA carrier, maybe trace of
music. Has Madagascar varied down to here, by long path, or am I
chasing a phantom? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11820-11840, Dec 13 at 1435, rapid clicking like OTH
radar (not DRM). Which reminds me, it`s been a very long time since I
have heard any such OTHR inband or outband (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** ALBANIA [and non]. 7210, Dec 11 at 2246, stilted Spanish from CRI
relay, including USB, QRM to ham QSO in English on LSB only, but
additional CCI of intermittent music which I think is naughty hamjam
on their favorite hangout. Other broadcasters listed now in Aoki/NDXC
are Sound of Hope, Taiwan plus jamming; Voice of Vietnam-1 from
Daclac; PBS Yunnan not restarting until 2255 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [non]. 9630.00, Dec 11 at 2304, Chinese, which NDXC/Aoki
shows as CRI in Cantonese via Jinhua 831 site this hour only, daily.
No sign of R. Aparecida, which has been about halfway between 9630.0
and 9631.0. It was also absent when I commonly would hear it circa
0630 UT Dec 11, when other off-frequency ZYs were there hetting 9565
and 9665 1-kHz BFO step-tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 7445, Dec 11 at 2244, two stations mixing in
Chinese; one with a clip in English to voice-over. That is certainly
VOA THAILAND as scheduled this hour only, the other CNR1 jamming
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, Dec 11 at 0542, RHC again on late in English, // 6000,
so second harmonic? 11840 is much stronger S9+10 in Spanish // 11700,
the latter with some distortion. 0624 recheck: 11700 & 11840 off,
12000 JBA carrier.

Is there anything to explain these on the RHC website schedule?
http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/frecuencias
The slow-loading pdf covering Spanish only, now shows 11840 & 11700 on
air until 0600, but both supposed to be in Spanish, for Chile and
Buenos Aires, respectively.

Let`s see if from the British-flag page we can get a different
frequency schedule?
http://www.radiohc.cu/en/interesantes/frecuencias
Yes, this one altho headed in Spanish, covers all the non-Spanish
languages, starting with English. Still claims the evening English
span is 02-08, instead of reality 01-07 generally, with the extra
frequencies starting at 06 instead of 05 when we have been hearing
them, just like in the summer. 12000 does not appear on either
schedule at any time. It was a Spanish fundamental in A-18.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Dec 11 at 1506, RHC is suptorted, // much better
15230. Would you believe that the current websked does not show 15230
ever? It`s always on at least in the mornings. There are two
suspicious blank spaces under Rio de Janeiro and San Francisco.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13560, Dec 11 at 1507, big RHC-FM blob right on the central
ISM frequency, i.e. separations of about 70-71 kHz from S9+40, 13700-
AM. The closer ones are quite readable in FM with the F# tone; further
out, only the tone may be detectable, as I then hunt the others and
note their strengths, put into order:

13334 trace
13418 S5
13489 S9
13560 S9+10
13630 S9+10
-----
13770 S9+10
13840 S9
13910 S9
13980 S5
14052 S3
14123 trace

Now that these spread into the 20m hamband, maybe the IARUMS will take
notice. However, by 1513, the spurs are diminishing greatly as if
someone is turning them down while the fundamental remains strong.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Dec 11 at 2257, RHC Spanish is S9+25 but suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** JAPAN [and non]. 9749.8 approx., Dec 11 at 1248, Japanese mixing
with another weak signal slightly below 9750.00 making a LAH. I would
not expect NHK to be off-frequency but that is surely the one in
Japanese, per Aoki, running 0755-1600.

Two others are listed at this time, PBS Nei Menggu, Hohhot, I.M.,
CHINA in Mongolian at 2150-1605; and the one most likely to be off-
frequency, R. Kuwait in Arabic at 1100-1600. In fact, that was
reported on 9749.8 as long ago as Nov 2, 2017 by Ivo Ivanov (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGST)

** JAPAN. 11665, Dec 11 at 2259, tune in to hear nothing but a 3+1
accurate timesignal to 2300:00* and off immediately. It`s NHK World
Radio Japan, direct in Japanese since 2055. Aoki/NDXC shows the only
other 11665 station, RTM Wai/Limbang FM, Kajang, Malaysia is supposed
to take over immediately from *2300, but no sign of it. If active, we
used to trace it in our mornings, allegedly straight thru until 1600*;
it`s either that or 9835 left for SW from Malaysia (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6045, Dec 11 at 1224 two stations mixing equally
making fast SAH circa 10 Hz, one YL talk in Korean?, the other music;
1228 both are in music, S8-S9. Per Aoki/NDXC, here`s what`s happening:
two clandestines are fighting each other, so Juche jamming hardly
needs to intervene! National Unity Radio via Dushanbe, TAJIKISTAN at
1100-1300; and V of Freedom from Hwaseong, Korea South at 0858-1406
(also at other very strange blox: 1452-2006, 2058-0206). 1348 recheck,
only one with piano music, i.e. VOF; and not // 6085 Shiokaze (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 739.95, Dec 11 at 1300, news/talkshow in Spanish, making
terrible low het against KRMG 740.00 Tulsa, which if carefully nulled,
partially audiblizes the Mexican, which we know is XEQN, R. FÃrmula,
TorreÃn, Coahuila. It has appeared on some official listings of
stations which are *not* migrating to FM, unfortunately. It`s been
off-frequency for years (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1570, Dec 11 at 2007 on caradio, Spanish here could be
groundwave from KTUZ Tulsa, but no, it`s already skywave from XERF,
``La Poderosa`` IDs associating that with FM 103.9 as much as with
1570, an IMER station in Ciudad AcuÃa, Coahuila. XERF really is
powerful, allegedly 100 kW, while several peanut-power outlets also
brand themselves as Poderosas; who`s to know any better? This is three
hours and ten minutes before our earliest sunset at 2317 UT (Glenn
Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES [and non]. 9450, Dec 11 at 2305, something in Chinese
mixing with a song in somelang. I would like to think the latter be
FEBC Bocaue as scheduled daily 2300-2330 in the Iu language; not a
good idea to confront RTI in Chinese and jamming at 2230-2430. The
only mention of Iu in EiBi`s README.TXT language list is:
``MIE Mien / Iu Mien: S China (0.4m), Vietnam (0.4m) [ium]``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11825, Dec 11 at 1255, RRI closing English hour, VG
S9+10/20. If also propagating this well from *1200, fine for ENAm and
maybe CNAm beyond intended target W Europe. Too bad it`s not an hour
later when more of us are awake, now a time when usually I am not
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3215, Dec 11 at 0635, TOMBS is still going at
S9+30 via WWCR, not off the air at 0600 as scheduled (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Dec 11 at 1218, VOA news, rather than RAE relay in
Portuguese which continues on 9955 only, vs pulse jamming; 1220
commercial for EZMedicare.com with a very long incomprehensible fast-
speed disclaimer which should drive away any customers who might have
been hooked; Oldies-style WRMI ID by BB claiming to be on 9395! Where
currently there is really a screaming gospel huxter rather like
Blalock the Blaster, but that is really from TOMBS and roughly //
9330+ WBCQ. Anyhow, 12-13 at least is an Oldies hour on 5950 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 11 at 1213, WTWW-2 with Xmasmx at S9+20/30, along
with parasite spurs 5072.1 & 5097.9. Has been running all night?

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Dec 11 at 0627-
0633, in the order checked: 747, 729, 693(2), 639, 621, 531, 1089,
*1215, 1575. *= strongest, Absolute R, UK; (2)= at least two carriers
beating. See also Trans-Pacific (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Dec 11 at 0627:
mainly Europeans, see Trans-Atlantic, but the first one I check is 846
which at this hour I expect to be from R. Kiribati, Kiritimati (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055, Dec 11 at 1212, JBA carrier, perhaps 4KZ in
Queensland, the only known broadcaster on this frequency. Nothing on
5045, where Unique Radio has supposed to have occupied the ex-Ozy
Radio channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 7178-LSB, Dec 11 at 2248, pileup here,
numerous hams talking over each other uttering nothing but their own
callsigns over & over & over & over as most of them never get a
contact; interspersed with pauses when everyone is listening, but on
another frequency? Must be a DX-pedition or contest.

Calls copied, not all 100% sure due to QRhaM, despite fonetix: W9BF,
K9RM, KP4S, N2OO, K4ZF, K0KB, KB2FM, W3RJW. Note how many are 1x2
format. At 2251 I sidetune looking for the DX station, and on 7175-LSB
hear WP4N say ``up 3`` but nothing further heard on 7175 in the next
biminute. The only one I look up at QRZ.com is WP4N in case he be the
object of their affexion: Carlos M Osorio, Carolina PR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7644.00-USB, Dec 11 at 2240, 2-way in Spanish; one has a
bad case of mike clatter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9992.35-USB, Dec 11 at 2304, 2-way in Spanish with heavy
engine noise which keeps the vox open even during speech pauses (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
