Hauser
** CHINA. 13870, June 2 at 1349, CNR1 jammer with modern Western
classical music, `cello during the usual Sunday evening concert hour,
// reliable 11785 jammer. Then before 1400, I bandscan and find a
whole bunch more WOOB: 13890 fair; 14640; 14980, 12870 strong S9;
11120 JBA and 11100 stronger; JBA on 14700; JBA carrier on 10960.

Consulting Aoki/NDXC and Aoki I then find the above are known jammed
Sound of Hope frequencies, EXCEPT: the strongest, only EiBi has as
SOH on 12870.2; 10960 is SOH relaying RFA, per Aoki; EiBi says
10959.8 but nothing about RFA. 14700 not listed.

At 1358 I settle on 12870 where now there are super-hype voice actor
announcements, commercials? 5+1 timesignal and OFF at 1400*

[I also had to sort out some carriers mostly JBA which turned out to
be local KCRC overload mixtures with strong SW frequencies:
10490+1390 = 11880 CRI via Cuba; 10370+1390 = 11760 RHC;
8880-1390 = 7490 WWCR] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, June 1 at 2113, RHC dead Spanish air at tune-in, then
cuts on modulation. Had it been silent since *2100? Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, June 2 at 0518, RHC English is OFF; same has also been
missing earlier for several nights when scheduled in Spanish. That
leaves: 6000, 6100 and 6165 in English, all JBM = just barely
modulated; and well-modulated 5040 is still in Spanish instead of
English this hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12200, June 2 a 1341, RHC Spanish is S9+20/30! While it`s
2x6100, this time the transmitter has got to be tuned up on 12200
instead, to be this strong, rather than ``accidental`` harmonic
leakage. On 6100 all I have is a JBA carrier, maybe Urumqi eastward
from the concentration camps in Mongolian. // 6000 is still on and
audible at S7-8, but producing no 12000 harmonic. 12200 is equal to
fundamental 11760 at S9+20/30. Meanwhile, 13700 is off, but 13740.0
is on. At 1400 recheck, 12200 has gone off. 6100 was supposedly sked
only until 1300. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Now something`s also wrong about the programming. Arnie`s Spanish DX
program `En Contacto` is supposed to run at 1335-1350 Sundays, but at
1340 I am hearing slanted news. At 1346 starts `El Mundo de la
Filatélia` for the next 18 minutes. Per own sked
http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/programacion
that`s supposed to be at 7:10 & 10:10 am Sundays hora de Cuba,
misconverted as plus 5 for UTC = 1210 & 1510, rather than current
plus 4, 1110 and 1410 UT. So they are running either 2:36 late or
0:24 early! At 1422 on 11760, `Somos Jóvenes` is wrapping up. Only
morning time for it on above schedule is 1155-1215, UT conversion
corrected. So now it`s 2:07 late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 9860, June 2 at 0525 something VP in English; O, it`s
NHK`s 0500 broadcast via VATICAN southward. Also on 5975 via Austria,
11970 via France (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17549.638, June 1 at 2102, R. Kuwait, S1-S3 but best heard
yet this year, Arabic talk, and the OSOB = Only signal/station on
Band! That`s more like it, typically knocked way off-frequency,
rather than just a few Hz above or below 17550. The incredible
yearound 20-24 UT broadcast to C & W North America propagable only
around summer solstice.

15535-15540-15545, June 1 at 2105, DRM noise at S2-S3. Got to be R.
Kuwait, English to W Europe and USward scheduled only 1800-2100 but
late turning off. Sigh; remember when it used to be AM? OSOB except
for 15370.0 Cuba and 15825 JBA carrier trace of WWCR (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 11725, June 1 at 2108, RNZI in English, S4
-S1 and with a fast SAH, sure sign of co-channel QRM, which could
well be a more severe collision elsewhere. That could only be, per
HFCC, NHK in Japanese at 2000-2330, 300 kW due west from Yamata; not
a good share (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, June 2 at 0117, unID pirate with rock
music, SFX; 0124 seems off or faded out; 0136 beepery so SSTV? Also
unID by these loggers, altho at 2345 June 1 it had been Pee Wee.
Someone thought the SSTV looked like something seen previously on
Skippy Radio
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,54576.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1984 monitoring: confirmed
Saturday June 1 at 2100 on WRMI 9955; after IS & ID loop at 2059, S8
-S6, but again WOR playback is upcut, JIP in theme after my first
eleven words (if 19-84 count as three); still on at 2109 when it`s
S9.

Also confirmed at NEW time of UT Sunday June 2 at 0130 on WRMI 5850,
S9+30/20 yet with considerable fading and not enough to totally
override storm noise level; on NW beam same as 7570 with TOMBS, same
S reading but rock solid.

Also confirmed UT Sunday June 2 at 0327 on WA0RCR, MO, 1860-AM,
S9+20/30 including storm noise level which makes me JBA but can tell
it`s at end of mid-break, then Indonesia, so started circa 0313.

Ivo Ivanov, Observer, Bulgaria, reports:
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 7265 CUSB, June 2
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/06/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_2.html

** U S A. Delayed in the e-mail, here`s John Carver`s report on
WBCQ`s `Allan and Angela Wiener WorldWide` for UT June 1 at 0000:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490 this evening after some fill
music. Dead air after theme song. Checked 9330 and it has Brother
Stair yammering away. Back to dead air on 7490. Theme song starts
again at 0007. Allan, Angela and Tom in the studio. Dead air again at
0011 and then some music fill. I have the feeling that this will be a
repeat episode. Pirate Joe breaks into the music with the WHVW call
sign so I guess we're listening to one of his shows. A break at 0027
with Pirate Joe saying that the feeds have been crossed. Then he
starts begging for funds to keep 3265 on the air and tells people
about the PayPal link on the station's website. Says he doesn't know
how the AAWW theme got into his feed. Then he starts reading an
article from a magazine. Program was over at 0100 and 7490 was off
the air. John Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, June 2 at 0116, WRNO is OFF; seems it has been
whenever checked for a few days now; you never know, then it will be
back there as if nothing had happened (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1240, June 2 at 1301 UT, Wichita, ``Sports Radio KFH, 1240
AM, 97.5 FM`` and join ESPN. 97.5 is a mere translator, K248CY, per
NRC AM Log, yet misquotes ID as with 98.7 FM. WTFDA FM Database shows
98.7 as KNSS-FM, News/Talk, CoL Clearwater not Wichita, and not //
with 1330 AM altho that is now KNSS, since 1330 & 1240 swapped calls
several years ago. I slid up here after another attempt to ID
anything on non-WBBZ 1230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7555-LSB, June 2 at 1312, Spanish 2-way, exchanging a
lot of numbers; fishing poachers catch, or drug shipments? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1945 UT June 2

** CHINA [and non]. 15340, June 1 at 1244, soft song at S3-S6 with
flutter, 1246 Chinese talk. Aoki/NDXC shows jammed SOH relay of RFA.

9230, June 1 at 1319, Chinese and music // 11785, CNR1 jammer against
Sound of Hope. EiBi shows SOH on 9230.1 but not a jammer. Aoki/NDXC
shows both on 9230. No het audible here.

15165, June 1 at 1335, very heavy CCI in Chinese, i.e. VOA via
THAILAND this hour only, vs CNR1 jamming. The latter goes off at
1400* when VOA has already quit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, June 1 at 0438, RHC English is about S9 of dead air,
or maybe JBM? 6000 likewise but slightly audible; 6060 Spanish is
OFF. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, June 1 at 0440, surprised to find R. Progreso carrier
still on, after nominal 0400*; maybe a trace of modulation?
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, June 1 at 0448, RHC Spanish is S8 of dead air or maybe
JBM. Still on and the same at 0547, but S5-S7. Supposed to quit at
0400 per Aoki/NDXC, and nothing else scheduled afterwards.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, June 1 at 1335, RHC S9 but very undermodulated; much
louder on S9+20 15140. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 9370, June 1 at 0443, music and talk in uncertain
language, VP S2-S5 vs storm noise from TX; where I have not noticed
anything before. HFCC shows 0430-0630 IBB Lampertheim in Fas, i.e.
Radio Farda, as confirmed by Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Ever since OETA without notice abruptly terminated its
OKLA subchannel-2 at the end of 2018y, replacing it with the
yellowish WORLD channel from PBS, I have been looking for a recording
of its blue ID slide for posterity, since I don`t think I ever
captured it before. Finally found one on an old tape:

http://www.w4uvh.net/OETAOKLA.JPG

While we`re at it, some more DTV pixillated art. These are from KWTV
-25 breakup on rabbit ears/UHF loop antenna; not sharp due to camera
focusing problem and hand-held, but adding? to mystique:

(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1984 monitoring: confirmed first
US SW broadcast, Friday May 31 at 2207 the 2200 on WRMI 9955 --- very
poor on portable, but at 2225 good S9+10 to S8 on the R75.

Also confirmed UT Sat June 1 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 but poor vs
storm noise level.

Also confirmed Sat June 1 at 1145 the 1130 on WRMI 9955, fair-good.

Not confirmed Sat June 1 from 1431 on HLR 9485-CUSB; via UTwente not
a trace of even the reduced carrier vs huge splash from 9490 Romania;
nor when tried with LSB tuning as I have called for. Next:

** U S A. 7490+, UT Sat June 1, at 0000 sharp, WBCQ starts playing
``William Tell Overture`` theme to `Allan and Angela Wiener
Worldwide`, but without any interjexions, intact complete until 0003,
a bad sign that something may be wrong. Then dead air, while I
recheck 9330+ to find that one still BSing instead of // 7490+. At
0006:40, WTO starts all over! This time AW comments, ``no more
repeats, we`re here from Monticello, Maine`` and fades down theme
before it complete again. Hard to copy anything due to weak signal vs
nearby storm noise level. Not rechecked until 0043, when now it`s
Pirate Joe, J P Ferraro instead of AW but with similar voice and
accent; so I don`t know what happened in the meantime, and haven`t
heard yet from John Carver. Can anyone else infill us? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15770, May 31 at 2000, WRMI-9 is S6-S7 but dead air, still
so at 2019. This was when, Fridays only, a new hour broadcast of
`Radio for Peace International` was supposed to appear. As always,
poor signal here off the side of its 44-degree NE beam back toward
Europe.

9455, meanwhile, Fri May 31 at 2019, this WRMI-8 with music from the
also new APS Radio, M-F only 19-21; at 2051 modulation if not carrier
cuts off and on and off and on, hard to tell which on non-BFO
receiver. Only fair signal on 355 degree antenna, same as 9395 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6900-AM, June 1 at 0435, JBA carrier; could be a pirate
where there is not normally a carrier; even YHWH? Which I still have
not been able to detect on the 7 MHz band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10775, June 1 at 1316, open carrier as S1-S4 and then
off. Thought it might be Sound of Hope/jamming, but not listed on
this frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1638 UT June 1

** BRAZIL. 11856.763, May 31 at 0619, VP S4-S5 music, as R. Aparecida
has varied way up to here, not only above nominal 11855, but above
11856 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non?]. 11895, May 31 at 0617, poor signal, talk in Chinese?
HFCC, Aoki/NDXC and EiBi agree that during this hour we have CRI in
English via Kashgar, East Turkistan, 209 degrees for Pakistan; and
RFA in Mandarin, 78 degrees via Kuwait for C&E China; and except for
HFCC, which Sees No Evil, therefore jamming, which EiBi labels as
CNR1 or Firedrake. Anyhow, something from over there is midnightly
propagating solsticeally (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, May 31 at 0211, RHC English is OFF, leaving only 6000
which is S9+10/20 but as usually, undermodulated. 6060 Spanish is
also OFF. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12200, May 31 at 0612, RHC English good at S8-S9, just as
readable as its fundamental 6100, S9+10/20, a nice indicator that the
MUF is up, despite no RHC or WRMI fundamentals on 25m. Back on 49m,
6000 & 6060 are still AWOL, while 6165 is JBM at S9-S7. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860, May 31 at 0618, weak S1 residual noise jamming
audible, on a Radio Martí frequency active only in the daytime.
Something`s always excessive at the DentroCuban Jamming Command
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR [and non]. 5009.931, May 31 at 0332, JBA carrier,
presumed RNM on signature off-frequency; checking after Zanzibar
6015; then I tune 5915 for Zambia but nothing there (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, May 31 at 0251, XEPPM with good modulation for a
change in a song, S9/+10. This season there is no Vatican or anything
else to collide all evening here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7440-7615, May 31 at 0335 and later, nothing from
Station YHWH, which Ron Howard and Walt Salmaniw have heard
reactivated after many months on 7480, 7495 sporadically around this
time last few nights. I remember he once used 7615 too (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1230, May 31 at 0155 UT, looking for DX in absence of WBBZ
Ponca City, but now it`s after sunset when there is plenty of other
QRM: briefly atop is a Rangers silly baseball game, 0156 break for
ad, but if local cannot copy it. DF seems NNW/SSE.

Texas Rangers provides map and station list on one page as of
5.21.19!
https://content.mlb.com/documents/5/4/8/302771548/2019_Map_Rangers_Radio_Network_Coverage_Area.pdf

On 1230, there are two:
KSEY Haskell TX, near Wichita Falls, SSW of here, W of Arlington
KSST Sulphur Springs, in NE TX, SE of here, E of Arlington
(but in Waco not on KWTX), so KSST is more likely by DF. I am no
station-counter so less than 100% certainty is no problem. It is what
it is (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 6015, May 31 at 0328:50 tune-in, presumed ZBC is already
on, as I was hoping to catch its cut-on, which Ron Howard says is now
around 0330, JIP programming after official sign-on at 0300. S9 but I
can`t hear much modulation. Others report their other frequency 11735
active but weak; I used to hear it before 2100v* but not any more
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** CHINA [and non]. 15800, May 30 at 1335, CNR1 talk jammer is JBA
along with a second carrier beating, // 11785. Aoki/NDXC shows this
is a jammed Sound of Hope frequency. Then I hunt for others WOOB.

14920, May 30 at 1339, CNR1 is JBA, another SOH* as listed

13150, May 30 at 1340, JBA carrier, but not a listed SOH* frequency
between 13130 and 13160. Aha, that would be local mix KCRC 1390 + RHC
11760.

12100, May 30 at 1343, CNR1 JBA: but no jammee or jammer listed

11150, May 30 at 1345, JBA carrier, SOH frequency listed by EiBi but
not Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15369.24, May 29 at 2030, again today RHC way off-frequency,
this time with Arabic audible, VP S4-S6. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1984, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, May 30 circa 2225 UT, WBBZ Ponca City is still off
the air; due to flooding? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WORLD OF RADIO 1984,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, May 29 at 1925 UT, shortly after my previous
report, KOKB Blackwell has finally resumed modulating // 1020 KOKP
Perry, with Stillwater ad, whence both of them originate. Flooding
may be abating now if that was the cause of modulation loss, tho
carrier always stayed on (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WORLD OF RADIO 1984, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.1 WBFM, May 29 at 1923 UT, manipulating the PL-880
telescopic, I get NPR via KWOU Woodward as preferred, but in a
different position, carrier with dead air, which must be the station
it always confronts depending on which has a slight tropo advantage,
KMSI Moore OK. No significant tornadoes in Moore AFAIK this time. In
WTFDA Database, I see that KMSI is 50 kW Vertical polarization only,
while KWOU is 23.5 kW H&V and somewhat further. There are three Oasis
Network gospel-huxters in OK on 88.1, KMSI, KDIM 100/100 kW Coweta
and a translator in Miamuh (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, May 29 at 1923 UT check, KAMG-LP Enid is still on
with dead air and may remain so for months until something fails.
It`s beyond me why anystation will do this, paying the electricity
bill while it could be accomplishing something by resuming modulation
at virtually no additional cost; as it did for one day when it first
came back last week (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 15825, May 30 at 1751, WWCR-1 with Brother
Scare, as the creep creeps onto more and more frequencies. EiBi shows
him already M-F at 1700-1800. Now it`s // 13845, but at 1806, 15825
has split to some other g.h., while 13845 prolongs TOMBS (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1983 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday May 29 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, after 2.5 minutes of IS & ID
loop rating S7 with deep fades to S2; but WOR upcut more than usual,
missing my entire first phrase, ``This is Glenn Hauser, with WORLD OF
RADIO 19-83``; I keep an ear on it, and this week transmitter stays
on until at least 2129. On WBCQ 7490.2v, WOR is back to 2100 plus a
few seconds behind WRMI, but much weaker. at 2130 can barely make out
the late Goddess Irena I back to her old slot.

WOR 1983 also confirmed UT Thursday May 30 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair
S9 vs storm noise.

** U S A. 9455, May 29 at 2037, long mostly-dormant WRMI frequency is
back on, sounds like Oldies stream, S8-S9 (while 9395 music is
different, from SMTV); 2045 ``On Broadway``, segués, no
announcements; 2055-2057 several off/on transmitter breaks, seems
stronger after the last one, S9+20; 2059 WRMI ID by BB, 2100* off and
stays off.

It`s not Oldies, but a new programming source, as explained by
Richard Langley, to the WOR io group:

``Listening to 15770 kHz today (27 May) after 1200 UT, one might
think that it's the "Oldies" feature presented by Bob Biermann often
heard on 9395 kHz and other WRMI frequencies. But, no. It's APS
Radio, a new feature. It was announced yesterday on the WRMI Facebook
page:

"APS Radio begins on WRMI tomorrow, May 27, from 1200-1300 UTC
Monday-Friday on 15770 kHz to Europe, and from 1900-2100 UTC Monday-
Friday on 9455 kHz to North America.

APS Radio is internet radio which features five music channels and a
news & commentary channel. APS Radio is not only internet radio; it
is radio streaming, online radio internet broadcasting, music online
and online music.

It is internet radio & radio streaming with no commercials. APS Radio
is an internet radio consisting of aggregated channels. APS Radio is
online radio, internet broadcasting, internet radio, music online and
online music. APS Radio is music online, a radio streaming service, a
radio stream & streaming radio.

[OK already, we get it, redundant redundant redundant --- gh]

Internet radio has the capacity to span the world; internet radio and
radio streaming and online radio and internet broadcasting that can
be heard anywhere. APS Radio is an internet radio & radio streaming
that can be heard anywhere.

This is internet radio & radio streaming, commercial free. Internet
radio is free and worldwide. Internet radio and radio streaming can
be accessed from anyplace, commercial free.

APS Radio is an internet radio service that consists of music
channels and a news & commentary channel. Please enjoy the rich
sounds of Internet radio commercial free.
http://www.apsradio.com/home.html";

Heard this morning using the U. Twente SDR receiver. 15770.001 kHz
came up at about 1157 UT with "top-of hour" sign-on announcement.
Fairly good signal into Europe, averaging about S9. Almost non-stop
vintage pop music with occasional IDs. First ID heard at 1232 UT.
-- Richard Langley``

But who owns it, finances it, where is it and what does APS stand
for? Only this is found on website under Trademarks:

``The name APS Radio was created and registered as a trademark by the
owner of APS Radio. APS Radio is an acronym standing for Atlantic
Pacific Systems. APS Radio and Radio Orenovscotia are registered
trademarks.``

Where is it? ``45N`` appears all over the website; is that a
latitude? That happens to be the parallel across Nova Scotia, north
of Halifax!

Classical Track has a current playlist in EDT, another clew, not ADT.
But which of their multi streams will be on these 15 hours a week of
SW? Another obscure ``station`` on the web is taking the SW plunge.
Are there ever any APS Radio IDs?

Confirming on the WRMI skedgrid, I see another new one: ``Radio for
Peace International``, Fridays only at 2000-2100 on 15770 extended an
hour. That would be the new European program, no connexion with the
original and much-lamented RFPI Costa Rica (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 1984, DXLD)

** U S A. 1069.977, May 29 at 1925, shortly after my last report, I
find that KFTI Wichita KS has come back on air after several days;
why off, storm damage or flooding? ``Classic Country 10-70`` [sic].
Meanwhile did nothing to correct its off-frequency, re-measured as
above at 1535 UT May 30. MWOffsets had it:

1070 1069.9793 USA KFTI (Wichita, KS) [-1070.0045 range] 2018-01-02
which means an annoying 21.2 Hz SAH or LAH against KNX:
1070 1070.0005 USA KNX (Los Angeles/El Nido, CA) 2017-10-31 i IBOC
when both are audible, tho KFTI nightpower cuts from 10 kW to 1
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1984, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12124.50-USB, May 30 at 1410, 2-way JBA in colloquial
Spanish; not exactly intruders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)
