** KUWAIT. 11629.762, Oct 16 at 1450, Arabic, Qur`an from R. Kuwait,
typical off-frequenciness (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Oct 16 at 1449, strumming & singing at S9+10,
1458 music stops, bits of Qur`an bookending lively YL talk, cut to
WRMI canned ID too late, not enough time to finish it before cutoff
the air at precisely 1500:00*.

So Radio Nigeria, Kaduna is still running on this transmission,
despite World Music fill at this time on Oct 14, evidently defaulting
due to LOS from Kaduna. Is it a satellite feed, or what? Existing, or
set up especially to reach Okeechobee? Search shows it available here,
untried, among the usual other aggregators:
http://tunein.com/radio/FRCN-Kaduna-Hausa-Service-s214977

11580, Oct 17 at 1430, Hausa at S7-S9, so still going now.

Aside from the transmission grid, nothing found about the Kaduna relay
on the WRMI programming page nor WRMI FB.
No luck finding own website, but searching leads to:
https://www.facebook.com/RadioNigeriaKaduna/
but stalled since 2014y. That in turn leads to
http://www.radionigeriakaduna.net/
--- but this domain is now For Sale.
In the pattern of Ibadan in WRTH I find this also leads nowhere:
http://radionigeriakaduna.org.ng

Per WRTH 2018 page 306: 11580 must be Channel 1 in Hausa only, since
they have a separate Channel 2 in Hausa and several other minority
languages including English on MW 1107 only, and not on SW unlike 1
which had been on 6090. Wikipedia stub claims English on 4770, which I
hardly remember. Also there are two FM channels, one all-English, the
other all-Hausa.

Well, at least the Hausans have this, while VOA has been disgraced, as
Dan Robinson refers us to:
https://www.dailytrust.com.ng/how-governors-5000-gift-swept-away-15-voa-hausa-staff.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11950, Oct 16 at 1444, YL with chorus music like S Asian
rap has me going at S8-S4 until 1447 announcement in Romanian and RRI
ID. Tipoff is the frequent word pronounced ``shi`` which means
``and``, and a sprinkling of familiar Romance-language words similar
to Italian or Spanish. Also similar signal on 11910 in German, as both
are scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SWAZILAND [and non]. 9585, Oct 16 at 1458, African language, weak
with fast SAH just starting from an understation, past 1500+. HFCC
explains it: at 1455-1525 is TWR Manzini, 100 kW, 64 degrees in
Malgache/French, and from 1500, CRI in Japanese, 500 kW, 73 degrees
from Xi`an (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, Oct 16 at 1422, K6FRC CW beacon from Patterson,
California is JBA. The most often audible one, and over time only a
few others ever heard on this band altho quite a lot are supposedly
active (sporadically?) in the LWCA roster:
http://lwca.org/sitepage/part15/index.htm
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1952 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
October 16 at 2055 check the 2030 on WRMI 7780 --- JBA but sounds like
me. Also confirmed Wednesday October 17 at 1038 check the 1030 on WRMI
5950, poor. Next:

http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, Oct 17 at 0512, WRNO poor in English, not Chinese.
Ron Howard has also noticed Chinese missing at various times, but the
nominal schedule for that language has never been clear, if there were
one. In case of no Chinese at all any more, that would be noteworthy.
We need to recheck in the hour before 1300*.

Website now shows nothing about Chinese, and no program schedule at
all, just publicity for three main English ministries, headed by owner
Mawire:
http://www.wrnoworldwide.com/

Aoki/NDXC shows daily Chinese segments `Grace for Today` at 03-05, 08
-10, 11-13, and something else in Chinese at 10-11. Altho there is no
link from the homepage, this still exists without any specific
scheduling info:
http://www.wrnoworldwide.com/grace-for-today/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6195, Oct 17 at 0601, strong carrier, off 0602 before I
have a chance to read the S-meter. Nothing scheduled, but probably
WHRI with a transmitter test before the 09-10 NHK relay in Portuguese
& Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2598-USB, Oct 15 at 0449, synthyl with marine weather in
English, S4-S5 vs storm crashes up to S9+10.

2749-USB, Oct 15 at 0450, same type of broadcast, weaker S3. Checking
the Canadian Coast Guard website schedule,
http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Marine-Communications/RAMN-2018/Part2#21
we find that these both originate with VCF, altho at many other times
there are separate stations, partly from NS or NL; so these may well
have been in //, not checked:

``Table 2-8 - Les Escoumins MCTS/VCF - Broadcasts [starting at:] 04:37
Natashquan 2598J3E
La VerniÃre 2749J3E Radiotelephony
Technical marine synopsis and forecasts for marine areas 215 to 221 and 301 to 302.
Wave height forecasts for marine areas 215, 217, 219, 220, 221, 301 and 302..
Notices to Fish Harvesters (when available)``

These are the last broadcasts of the night until resuming at 0847 on
both. But where are these places, exactly, in QuÃbec? Elsewhere in
sked, concerning VHF, coÃrdinates are shown:

La VerniÃre
47Â21'28"N
061Â55'30"W

is in the Magdalen Islands.

Natashquan
50Â09'06"N
061Â47'42"W

is on the north shore of St Lawrence in remote SE Quebec, on hwy 138;
far from Les Escoumins HQ for VCF, also on hwy 138 much further west
between Rimouski and Saguenay.

Above website shows many other DX possibilities on these two MF
channels, on a rotating time schedule; and several other 2 MHz banders
including 2582 and 2514 where I`ve yet to hear anything. Also higher
marine bands from some northern stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13630 & 13770 approx., Oct 15 at 1348, FM spurs out of RHC
13700-AM, barely detectable with tell-tale F# tone but no readable
modulation; even less so around 13773, 13763, 13637, 13623, 13555, so
the main peaks are plus and minus 70 kHz, but now also elsewhere in
between. Need to tighten them up! Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1952, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Oct 14 at 2126, R. Nigeria, Kaduna, via WRMI,
in Hausa at S9, still going for this transmission. I wonder if there
is any English? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1952, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1951 monitoring: Manuel MÃndez,
Lugo, Spain, reports: 6190, Hamburger LokalRadio, GÃhren, *0603-0708,
13-10, after having been inactive last Saturday[s], today on air,

Hamburger LokalRadio has changed its 9485 kHz Sunday frequency for its
English program and now this program is on air on 7265 kHz. Logs in
Friol, Tecsun S-8800, cable antenna, 8 meters``

WOR 1951 confirmed Sunday October 14 at 2130 on WRMI 7780 at S4-S6 AND
on WRMI 9955 at S9+10 but with pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! The
two frequencies are about one word apart, so separate playouts rather
than exactly // from same feed; just before at 2127 they were
different, 9955 with World Music and 7780 with `Wavescan`.

Also confirmed UT Monday Oct 15 after 0300 on Area 51 webcast, and via
WBCQ 5129.84, good S9 ending at 0330:29 so started circa 0301:40. The
0330 UT Mon Oct 15 on WRMI 9955 is a JBA carrier vs pulse jamming, but
audible on webcast.

531, 549, 558, 612, 621, 639, 684, 693, 711, 729, 747, 774, 837, 855,

OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2960, Oct 15 at 0452, S2 bit of broadcast talking,
presumably a 2 x 1480 harmonic, and where WERM, Mobile AL, has been
heard before.

But I also have JBA carriers on many nearby frequencies: 2940, 2980,
3020, 3040, 3050, 3070, 3180, 3200. 2940 had HJNT, Cali, Colombia,
last April. All but 3070 could also be second harmonix. Some or all of
them could also be R75 receiver-produced; but I am only hearing such
in this area, not lower on 2 MHz band. If & when we get extremely
quiet no-storm winter conditions, maybe something else can be
identified (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13660, Oct 13 at 1332, RHC is S7 here, sufficient on leapfrog
mixing product of 13740 over 13700 another 40 kHz lower; but no
reverse audible on 13780. 13740 is S9+20, 13700 is S9+30 and no FM
spurfield from it today. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Sunday Oct 14 at 0701, RHC opening Esperanto, while all
the other frequencies are off. Unlike a week ago, when Esp`o showed up
at 0600 on a bunch of them. Something`s not wrong at RHC (Glenn

** CUBA [non]. 13820, Oct 14 at 1415, lite pulse jamming against no
Radio Martà ---- lest we forget, RM uses this in the B-seasons,
instead of 13605 in the A-seasons; why? HFCC B-18 now available
confirms 13820 GB at 14-20, nothing on 13605 (and new 11860 remains M
-F at 14-22) (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. More on Radio Nigeria, Kaduna, new relay via WRMI
11580. Further info from Jeff White, a bit too late for my last
report:

On Friday, October 12, 2018, Glenn Hauser wrote:
``Tnx. So what will be the regular schedule? Modulation was really
cutting off and on a lot today. Glenn``

Jeff: ``0500-0900, 1100-1500, 2000-2300. But it may change to just
2000-2300 in the near future. Sent from AOL Mobile Mail``

And I see these have already been entered on the WRMI skedgrid, XMTR
10 at 87 degrees, as System L in brown, but no further details.

This is the FRCN regional station, in Kaduna, formerly active on 6090.
Federal government, *not* clandestine this time.

Paul Walker received another reply from Jeff: ``That's us with Radio
Nigeria Kaduna in the Hausa language, on daily now at 0500-0900, 1100
-1500 and 2000-2300 UTC on 11580, till further notice. It's beamed to
West Africa``

My further monitoring of 11580: at 2022 Oct 12 VP S6-S8; better S9+10
with music at 2048. At 0611 Oct 13, JBA carrier, OSOB except for
slightly stronger Aparecida, Brasil on 11857-. Sure hope the night MUF
is holding up better eastward from Okee. At 1413, S9+10 in Hausa talk.
Oct 14 at 0630, JBA carrier again.

11580, Oct 14 at 1447, non-African music on good signal, 1449 canned
Biermann WRMI ID as in the Oldies stream, and indeed followed by an
obviously Oldies tune. (9395 currently with TOMBS); so this
transmission is already gone from Nigeria, but still on the air (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1951 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
October 13 at 1255 the 1231 on Unique Radio via WINB, 9265, S9+10.

Next WOR broadcast, at 1431 via Hamburger Lokalradio, has been missing
from 6190-CUSB the past three weeks with no info from station about
the status. But Alan Gale, England, found a new schedule effective
today on their website, with 9485-CUSB replacing 6190 for this
transmission, WOR at the same times as before:
http://hamburger-lokalradio.net/?page_id=2229

Samstag
06.00 â 11.00 UTC â 6190 kHz (49mB)
11.00 â 15.00 UTC â 9485 kHz (31mB)
Sonntag
09.00 â 12.00 UTC â 7265 kHz (41mB)

So 9485-CUSB, at 1430 via UTwente, gets a JBA carrier, with huge
splash, especially during music, from 9490 CRI Bengali, 150 kW, due
west from Kunming. HLR might have a chance if it were on LSB instead
of USB. Which HLR frequency is only 150 watts? As shown on website,
the other two 1 kW. 9485 means an even greater skip distance at 1431,
less likely reception as close as UTwente. But further in England,
Alan reports:

``Hi Glenn, HLR on 9485 at fair strength. I've been listening to HLR
since it came on 9485 at 1100 UT, not booming in, but fair and
listenable, though at around 1440 there is some QSB starting to build
up during the World of Radio slot. Nice to listen to it without the
usual PBS carrier, and to be able to use AM rather than CUSB. No
splatter noted here on either sideband, thankfully. Alan``

From Northern Ireland, Jordan Heyburn reports: ``World of Radio -
Glenn Hauser: 9485 kHz CUSB at 1435 UT good signal. Perseus SDR -
Beverage (Facing South) - Remote QTH Finland``.

WOR 1951 confirmed UT Sunday October 14 at 0328 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM,
Missouri, good signal about 11 minutes into show so started circa
0317.

Next HLR airing should be Sunday 1030, HLR on new 7265-CUSB, ex-9485.
Manuel MÃndez, Lugo, Spain, confirms during the previous program:
``7265-CUSB. Now on air 1005-1013, 14-10, with poor signal, program
"Media Network Plus"`` Next:
2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE, 9955 to SSE
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
0330 UT Monday WRMI 9955 to SSE

#1952 should be ready for first airing UT Tue 0030 on 7730 WRMI.

** U S A. 9265, Saturday Oct 13 at 1301, right after WOR finished on
Unique Radio via WINB, Tim Gaynor`s own `Sounds of Your Life` show
starting with ``Happiness`` song, nice (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490v), Oct 13 from 0004, `Al Weiner Worldwide` on WBCQ is
instead inhabited by CE Tom Barna, with Robert aside, since AW and
Angela are away at some hamfest. Takes a lot of phone calls, bits of
music, and mainly talks about Superstation progress. About 65 to 75%
complete now. Need to hook up antennas and transmission line. 500 kW
Continental transmitter expected to be delivered about November 5. Tom
will be working long hours 6 days a week for two months, installing it
along with TimTron and the rep from Continental. Tom has already moved
into the apartment in the new octagon building (seen on website) which
will house master control and the transmitter. Building has copper
faraday cage screening built in already. Hope that most of the RF out
of antenna will be directed away from the MCR.

Depending on whether the Ampegon antenna is ready, maybe start testing
(presumably meaning on the air), early December. To be installed, a
kilofoot of 9-inch transmission line. Tom says working on a 500 kW
unit will be new for him, only 50 kW previously. Maybe ready to go on
air in five months (which would be mid-March, already). One caller
asks if they have icing problems there in northern Maine --- not much,
he says; it`s either too cold or too hot for ice to build up. No e-
mail reading, since he can`t get into AW`s inbox (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6135-USB, Oct 13 at 0626, INTRUDER 2-way in Spanish
repeating digits 5-8-6-5, presumably a QSY notice. So I retune to 5865
at 0627 and do hear weaker JBA 2-way in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)
