Hauser
** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 4 at 0522, JBA carrier equivalent to 11580, so WRMI is on but too weak to tell if it`s R. Biafra or fill music. Trans-Atlantic monitors could not even hear either signal. At 0612 there is enough to match it to // 7570, i.e. Brother Scare; 0714 music and presumed Hausa from R. Herwa International.

Keep checking 11530 and 9580 via France for the 19-20 UT Biafra broadcast. O, I see Dec 4 at 1600 that the WRMI skedgrid updated Nov 28, now shows #10, 160 degrees toward S America, at 0500-0730 with algo, but no System D block at 19-20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ECUADOR [and non]. 6050, Dec 4 at 0158, HCJB weak S7-S9 but in the clear, no DRM noise unlike 24 hours ago. 0159 ID but no timesignal. As I said, Kuwait suspected tho scheduled on 6050 only at very different daypart and only in AM. To which Art Delibert, Bethesda, Maryland, replied on Dec 3:

``Glenn â Iâm hearing the digital racket around 6050 right now (1805 UT). Itâs comparable in strength to the few readable signals on the band, which (other than CFRX) are from the middle east â Turkey on 5980, Iran on 6025 and 6100, BBC Al Seela on 6195. Checked again at 1920 â the digital signal is gone. CRI is clearly audible from Cerrik in French on 6055`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 11725, here`s why I was not hearing RNZI last night. Website reveals an abrupt QSY, apparently only for this transmission: ``04:59-07:58 13730 Pacific Daily from 01 Dec``

13730, Dec 4 at 0613, JBA carrier as RNZI has moved here from 11725, and in fact the OSOB, but 2 MHz higher means it doesn`t make it to North America, while 11725 was usually the SSOB!

7355, Dec 4 at 1359 tune-in just in time to hear end of Radio Martà QSY announcement, 1400 dead air for a couple minutes, except for Cuban jamming which is already on it and slow to turn off. So this now blox the RNZI broadcast from 1259!

Thus, Dec 4 at 1521 UT I write to frequency manager Adrian Sainsbury:

``Hi Adrian, Very disappointed that you replaced 11725 with 13730. For us, 11725 was a great signal, usually the strongest on 25m during that span. Now 13 MHz is too high, last night a just-barely-audible carrier. No doubt you thought it necessary for your target area.

Now there is another problem. Last week, Radio Marti started using a third frequency in our evenings, 7355. This morning it was also on the air until 1400 UT, blocking RNZ, and furthermore with Cuban jamming, which continued a while longer. By 1500 you were in the clear, but signal weakening here.

You should get on IBB/OCB about this, and/or QSY immediately to a clear frequency before 1400. I don`t yet know when IBB restarts 7355, but surely no later than 1300 when you are on it.

BTW, there were already complaints about 7355 colliding with KNLS Alaska after 1400, tho here it is seldom much of a problem. 73, Glenn Hauser, OK`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1906 monitoring: Confirmed UT Monday Dec 4 at 0032 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, poor (still audible at 0157 during Blalock the Blaster, very poor on 9330.054). WOR also confirmed UT Monday Dec 4 from 0401 on Area 51 webcast, and fair at 0404 check via WBCQ 5129.840. Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 4 at 0430 on WRMI, 9955, S9+20 and no jamming. Next:
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW, 7780 to NE [or #1907?]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730, Monday Dec 4 at 0617, ME pop song on WRMI, VG S9+30. This is currently the best hour of the week reliably to hear World Music, a great variety of tunes, otherwise Argentina in Japanese Tue-Sat; `Radiogram` and `Radiopanorama` in Russian on Sundays. Probably repeated `Broad Spectrum Radio` at 07-08 after I zzz; by then also on 5850. A new edition is expected next week Dec 11 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9370, Dec 4 at 0012, WWRB continues to broadcast dead air at S9+20, and their only other scheduled broadcast, 3215 at this hour three nights a week, is absent. We continue to be concerned about Dave Frantz, who if on duty would surely have done something about this by now since last Thursday. After previous discussion on the DXLD yg, we got this reply from Stephen Michael Kellat, KC8BFI, at 0104 UT Dec 4:

``If anybody wants to proceed with calling for a "Welfare Check" by local law enforcement, it appears that the Warren County TN Sheriff's Department are the local LEOs concerned. Their website is found at
http://www.warrencountytn.gov/sheriff.asp
and their non-emergency number is 937-473-7863. If/When you call the local LEOs, tell them they need to loop in the nearest FCC office for technical support as the gentleman is the station operator who may be incapacitated. I hate when I have to do these sorts of referrals for my usual employing federal bureau when I'm an on-duty GS-0962-07 Contact Representative so that's why I'm not making the call myself. As of 0102 UT I attempted to call the station number but got voicemail``

9370 is still dead air of S9+20 at 1339 UT December 4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11520, Dec 4 at 0522, VP carrier, but means WEWN English remains reactivated; At 1340, 12065 also on at S9-S5, not a solid signal, but with usual redundant mass during this semihour. At 1501, very poor signal on next frequency all day, 15610 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9482.0-USB, Dec 4 at 1347, 2-way INTRUDERs in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1619 UT December 4

** ALGERIA [non]. 5940, Dec 2 at 2155, ME singing, S7-S5. It`s RTA via FRANCE now here at 20-22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 2 at 1900 and later, no signal today from WRMI for R. Biafra. Dec 3 at 0557, WRMI fill music at S9-S6, song in unknown language, but tuned in too late to tell if there was any R. Biafra earlier in this hour. 0600 to Brother Scare, 0635 Planet X stuff, and 0710 recheck sounds like Hausa, really Radio Herwa International (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Dec 3 at 0652, R. Rebelde is S9+20 but suptorted. Wiggle that patchcord. 5040 RHC is OK in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7355 // 7365, Dec 3 at 0137, R. Martà is over jamming on both, S9+45 but slightly stronger on 7355. At wideband AMS tuning the two signals blend together with no echo (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ECUADOR [and non]. 6050, Dec 3 at 0126, HCJB usual weak signal, but now amid what sounds like DRM noise from 6045 to 6055! Nothing else scheduled now, but Kuwait at 16-21 on 6050 supposedly in AM. Suspect they could be playing around with DRM here as they do on other frequencies, perhaps by mistake at this hour. Will it recur? Also suspected possibly spurs out of the dirty 6060 RHC transmitter, but doubt that. Still past 0200, when BTW I was listening for an automatic timesignal from HCJB, but none heard. Not doing that any more? Another unlikely possibility: the noise coming out of defective HCJB transmitter itself, but seems too strong for that. DRMish noise still audible around 6050 at 0645 Dec 3, when ELWA would be the victim. Now I wonder if it`s something local (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, UT Sunday Dec 3 at 0125, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY is good with rock music at S9-S6; 0131 check the Radiogram beeps; 0150 medley ending with `White Xmas`, plug T-shirts; 0152 Kraig W Krist`s ``Forgotten song`` this week is ``Out of the Question`` from March 1973 by Gilbert O`Sullivan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Dec 3 at 0636, no signal from RNZP, but too late to search for other frequencies. Propagation is otherwise normal from Hemisphere South with weak Brazilians (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7375, Dec 2 at 2149, RRI in English, but *2150 covered by open carrier from Greenville prior to R. Marti at 2200. A courteous station would have avoided colliding with RRI just for a warmup. At least RRI is // on clear 7310 at S9-S7 for E North America, while 7375 is for Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 11815, Dec 3 at 1415, VOT with rabble-rousing speech in Turkish, by the president/dictator? No sign of NHK or even a SAH. Meanwhile, VOT English with song on 12035.04 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7296-USB, Dec 2 at 0214, the contrarian net of hams on USB instead of LSB on 40m. Main one heard is K9WT discussing propagation, equipment work. Also with KJ5GT. ARRL/FCC lookup shows K9WT is VENDELY, JOHN A, Malabar, FL 32950-3603 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1906 monitoring: confirmed Saturday December 2 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9330.02, fair-good, and again audible not only on USB but also somewhat quieter on LSB, with carrier still reduced. Missed checking again the 2300 Sat on WRMI 11580. Next repeat, UT Sunday Dec 3 at 0200 on 11580 is very poorly audible at S3-S2.

Also confirmed UT Sunday Dec 3 at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, about 9 minutes into show, so started circa 0419. Also very heavy CW QRM during what must be a 160m contest, from at least two stations near 1860. WA0RCR always stands out in what is normally CW portion of the band. But without a contest, CW senders keep their distance.

At earlier check 0201, `Newsline` on 1860-AM had lots of CW QRM, including very rapid CQs from an N4, obviously not hand-keyed, so why bother? Everything from 1800 to 1872 is crammed, erupting with CW; the first phone LSB signal at 1877.5. And from 1880 to 2000 hardly any phone activity: I guess normal phone ops are doing the CW contest instead.

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports:
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio on 9485-CUSB via HLR, Dec 3:
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2017/12/reception-of-world-of-radio-on-9485cusb.html
1131-1200 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, very weak
0731-0800 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu Sat Dec 2 - NO SIGNAL!``

Alan Gale, England, reports: ``Hi Glenn, No sign of HLR here on Saturday [1531 UT on 7265-USB], just the more distant station. It seemed to be the case with all of the German stations at that time though, as I wasn't hearing Channel 292 either, which is most unusual. Probably a very long skip or something similar to blame as the solar activity was showing normal at that time. Alan``

Next:
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW, 7780 to NE [or #1907?]

** U S A. 7489.95, Sat Dec 2 at 2158, WBCQ `The Planet` IS & ID loop, so again about to sign on an hour earlier than usual. 2200 to `Tom Call Theater` repeating exactly same episode from a week ago, ``Dead Horse Beach`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Sat Dec 2 at 2205, incredibly boring and amateurish political rant, on `Dub Politico`. The guy coughs on the air, fumbles with script? reads it with stumbles, pauses, as if he couldn`t care less to convey his message. Something about violent anti-government/union demonstrations in France years ago. WRMI sked shows this as 2200-2230, so really half an hour of Dub now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Sunday Dec 3 at 1410, WRMI with Oldies music, while 9455 & 7780 are in `Wavescan`. Previously, so was 9395 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9370, Dec 2 at 2202, open carrier dead air from WWRB instead of Brother Scare. Also Dec 3 at 0638, JBA carrier on 9370, nothing on 3185. Also at 1410, S9+10 of dead air on 9370. Now I wonder if the other transmitter ever showed up around 00-01 Dec 3 on 3215?? WWRB may not have a ``dead man`s switch`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Since at least Thursday evening, WWRB has been stuck on 9370 all night and all day with no modulation, still so at 1616 UT today Sunday December 3.

This is unusual even for WWRB, so I am getting concerned that something may have happened to Dave Frantz.

Someone should check at the station or try to contact him. WRTH info:

6755 Shady Grove Road, Morrison TN 37355 (transmitter and studio)
Phone 931-728-6087
dfrantz@wwrb.org
http://www.wwrb.org
(Glenn Hauser, 1622 UT Dec 3, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11520, Dec 3 at 0148, WEWN English is finally back after missing several days, now S9+10 to S8, strong enough to hear the squeals this transmitter suffers from, pitch varying with the modulation which is a talk show about women, `Encounter Radio``. Still detectable at 0635, but very poor. Gone again, no 12065 at 1409 unless it`s the JBA carrier; no 15610 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, UT Sunday Dec 3 at 0210, WWCR with `Talking Machine Show`, mostly music, but now a comedy routine from a Chautauqua in 1919y, poor quality and hard to follow: comedian supplies his own laughs. Competes with `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` on 5085 WTWW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1734 UT December 3

Hauser
** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 1 at 1903, no signal from R. Biafra, via WRMI --- this has become quite irregular/unreliable.

11530, Dec 2 at 0552, WRMI is on, but instead of R. Biafra, well-worn World Music fill from WRMI, `Sandunga` on marimba (but always enjoy hearing it); initially fair, quickly fades to very poor; while 7240 France is inaudible..

11530, Dec 2 at 0627, still on with the Brother Scare fill hour // 7570, but unknown whether R. Herwa International would really ensue at 0700, zzzz (Ivo confirmed that on Nov 30, anyway, but Dec 2 it was Wavescan!) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4924.98, Dec 2 at 0106, JBA carrier again, as previous unID noting that R. EducaÃÃo Rural, TefÃ, Amazonas, had been on 4925.2. Ron Howard replied: ``Hi Glenn, On Nov 28, Ralph Perry noted that R. EducaÃÃo Rural was indeed on 4925.00, after having been off frequency for many years. Finally adjusted the transmitter! Dave Valko measured 4924.982. Ron, California`` Tnx, Ron, as these guys do not share their logs directly with us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 9825, Dec 2 at 1457, Firedragon jamming at about equal level to Chinese, which is per Aoki/NDXC: VOA at 11-15 via Saipan, also 10-11 via Tinang (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5990, Dec 2 at 0055, CRI music relay is not off the air today but undermodulated as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 7355, Dec 1 at 2135, new R. Martà frequency is not yet on, nor at 2200 when 7375 has started. Missed checking in the 2300 hour, but by 0030 Dec 2, 7355 is on again, not as dominant as yesterday but still S9+20, fair over the noise jammers which have now found it. RM also on somewhat stronger 7435 and weaker 6030, all jammed. Likewise at 0050 recheck.

7435, at 0113 Dec 2, no RM and no jamming! 7365 and 7355 are both on and jammed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also ROMANIA

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Dec 2 at 0633, R. Verdad transmitter is still on at S9 in dead air. With tight budget, surprised they don`t try to save on the electricity bills. OTOH if leaving it on, might as well modulate it with something at no additional cost. Has some ACI from utehash on hi side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6085, Dec 2 at 1347, poor signal from Shiokaze on new frequency as discovered by Ron Howard yesterday, just as I suspected they would QSY for a new month after wasting their watts on 7410 under China in Japanese. Too weak to discern whether in Chinese, Japanese of Korean, but Aoki/NDXC says Korean and started 6085 already on Nov 30 when the hour was in English. Certainly better here, but there is some hash around 6087, which Wolfgang BÃschel lately noted:

``UNIDENTIFIED. Re: Unidentified 6087.497 kHz --- Noted on Japan remote SDR post: HIGH SPEED ute data transmission at 1025 UT on Nov 15: two data PAIR string peaks visible, HIGHSPEED DATA on 6086.500 and
6087.500 kHz, S=8-9 in Hiroshima and Tokyo, Japan, but weak S=5-6 in
Seoul South Korea. 73 wb (Wolfgang BÃschel, dxldyg via DX LISTENING
DIGEST)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9345, Dec 2 at 1454, forlorn wind music, Chinese announcement at S9-S7. Aoki/NDXC shows the only 9345 anywhen is FEBC, 1400-1600, 100 kW, 300 degrees from Iba. Not worth jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 5980, Dec 2 at 0054, RRI closing non-DRM Spanish hour with schedule, not mentioning the fact that this frequency is subject to jamming as heard now, and likely for anystation foolish enough to pick a Radio Martà frequency, which will then be subject to jamming at any hour beyond those really used by RM (from 0700). But why should Cuba do any favors for countries which have overthrown the yoke of communist repression decades ago? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7345, Dec 2 at 0640, RRI is still colliding at about equal level with BBC WS Ascension, both English this semihour and both totally unlistenable. How about making one LSB, other USB? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 9690, Dec 2 at 1456, REE IS mixing with last few minutes of AIR GOS in English. A courteous station might suppress the unnecessary IS in such an overlap. REE is of course a poor signal this early to North America on weekends only. At 1502, 15500 aimed oppositeward is best, altho with dual-path echo; and 15390 is anechoic but continues to be transmitted distortedly for those unlucky South Americans. Nothing audible from a fourth frequency on 16 or 13m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035, Sat Dec 2 at 1352, VOT Turkish music on poor signal, 1355 to talk feature something about living together. Confirming this is an off-week of the fortnightly `Letterbox`, back Dec 9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1906 monitoring: confirmed UT Saturday December 2 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9329.989. Carrier is still reduced, but like yesterday audible both on USB and somewhat weaker LSB. Initially good but by 0048 faded(?) to JBA carrier (9265 WINB is still S5, 9370 WWRB dead air S9, 9395 WRMIBS S9-S5). Not confirmed, Saturday Dec 2 at 1531 on HLR 7265-CUSB via UTwente: as usual, nothing but S Asian music and talk audible from CRI Sinhala via East Turkistan. At 1557, CRI pause but still hear some weaker music, and no me until 1600 CRI blasts back on. Next:
Sat 2030v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND

** U S A. 7780, Friday Dec 1 at 2027 checking what WRMI will do; currently with Brother Scare as scheduled, but at 2030 sharp, abrupt cut to AWR Wavescan // better 9455 & // best 11580 --- but it`s not the latest edition #457 starting Nov 26, but #454 starting Nov 5, with opening feature on KDKA. This opens up untold possibilities for which episode may really be appearing at the dozens of scheduled and unscheduled WS times on WRMI!

9395 // 9455 // 7780, Sat Dec 2 at 1455, WRMI Oldies continues with ``Rollin` on the River``, ``Both Sides Now`` until 1505 ID. So will delete this entry from DX/SWL/MEDIA programs of a previously monitored/discovered secret airing of Wavescan:
``Sat 1455-1525V WRMI: AWR WAVESCAN 9395``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490-, UT Sat Dec 2 from 0100.5, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, opening rant about overdone sexual molestation charges, re which current ``Angela, beautiful girlfriend of two months`` with him in the Land of Fla studio #9 (really, there are at least 8 others?) seems to agree, but hardly a word is heard from her. Also on weaker 5130-, delayed about 28 seconds. At 0123 he says the #1 transmitter (7490) was rebuilt and back in service about 3 weeks ago, has ERP of 220-230 kW in direxional beam toward Mexico City and South America (axually if registered 245 degrees, is toward Nuevo Laredo, missing CDMX exactly and certainly not S America). Adds that 3265 is not in use without a major customer, since that converted MW 50 kW transmitter is AM only and consumes more power than the reduced carrier/SSB ones. Price for 3265 can`t be discounted much. Here`s John Carver`s resumà of more AWWW this week:

``Show began at unknown time as I can barely copy 7490 this evening. Allan and Angela holding court this evening. Opening rant is about the number of sexual harassment charges flying around out there all of a sudden. Comments made on the fact that a lot of these things allegedly happened twenty or thirty years ago.

Moved to 5130 at 0112. Much better signal there, 20 over. Allan urges all men to be gentlemen. Next is a State of the Station report. 7490 transmitter is doing well. Says ERP is about two hundred and thirty thousand watts. Says 5130 is doing well. Still trying to sell time on 3265 without much luck. Says 3265 is well matched to the rhombic antenna. Explains how he tries to run the station without debt. First phone call at 0135. The subject of taxes comes up again briefly with that phone call. Signal on 5130 starts to fade some as it gets near 0200. At 0200 they cut the feed to 5130 and it goes off the air. I go back to 7490 and can't understand a damn thing there so this is where the report ends as I have no idea what happened after 0200. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9370, Dec 2 at 0049, WWRB is S9 of dead air past 0102, as it has been whenever checked recently, instead of Brother HyStairical on his exclusive day frequency. Also at 0630, still 9370 with JBA carrier, no signal on night frequency 3185. Apparently running on auto-pilot, while Dave is flying away somewhere else? Just turned on the transmitter to 9370 and forgot it.

9370, Dec 2 at 1452, STILL S9+20 of dead air, past 1500, the most important hour of the week for BS, his live Sabbath disservice from The Tabernacle, which can yet diffuse on 9840 WHRI, 9955 WRMI, etc., etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5059.2 & 5110.8, Dec 2 at 0635, WTWW-2 second-order spurblobs are detectable, much weaker than first-orders 5072.1 & 5097.9 which attain S9 but no modulation, out of huge S9+50 fundamental 5085 with Xmasmx, ``In excelsis`` medley. Math: 12.9 kHz separations and double that at plus/minus 25.8. Shall we go for 3x? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 880-CUSB, Dec 2 at 1328 UT, `Creation Moment` nonsense, 1330 UT no ID and into `Parenting Today`s Teens`, neither in Navajo, but obviously KHAC Tse Bonito NM, right across from Window Rock AZ, as E/W DF also fits, and totally overcomes KRVN from the N. (Also just had C&W from E/W on 660-DSB, no doubt weaker neighbor, 50 kW ND KTNN). KHAC obviously on 10 kW ND day power as usual (always?), not 430 watts ND night. Them cheatin` Indians, or rather Anglo missionary impositions by Western Indian Ministries. FCC shows KHAC`s legal SR/SS times for December are 1415 and 2400 UT. And, standard remark about noting the very few SSB US MW stations! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
