Hauser
** ALGERIA [and non]. 531, Dec 10 at 0332, Jil-FM quite separable from
weak 530 signals, and some talk modulation, presumably ``Algerian
Arabic`` as in WRTH which also shows F`kirina is location, 600 kW, 24
hours, and BTW this is in AM, not FM! Could this be the grandest AM
station in the world which has lost its identity to FM? 30X the power
of WSB. Weaker het tho same power on 549 I can`t separate so well from
550s; BTW, nothing much on 576 which was an Algerian sensation a
couple weeks ago; is it off again? Usual set of other JBA TA MW
carriers at least on bottom half of band, I relent and don`t enumerate
this time, but also note some music on 774 at 0334 from the RNE1 Spain
synchros (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11150, 10870, 10845 JBA carriers, stronger 10820 in Chinese,
Dec 10 at 0022, presumed all CNR1 jammers against SOH. More WOOB ones
not found higher or lower (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11885 // 11790, Dec 10 at 0015, CRI English good on both:
Xian 500 kW at 200 and 190 degrees respectively.

11820, Dec 10 at 0016, CRI in Cantonese, good at same parameters as
11885.

11770, Dec 10 at 0016, CRI in Vietnamese, resembling 11820 Yue, this
one 500 kW, 193 degrees from Beijing site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Dec 10 at 0028, RHC English is distorted and squealing;
and no parallel alternative at this hour. Something`s always wrong at
RHC.

BTW, to mark Human Rights Day, Dec 10, RHC English has mailed out a
quotation from Fidel Castro Ruz, huge violator of human rights as
multi-sesquidecade Commie dictator (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 6000, Dec 10 at 0353, RHC English JBM/suptorted,
while only // 6145 is merely undermodulated; also with splash from
6150 Romania in Spanish with full schedule about to sign-off; yet its
signal is hardly stronger. Somethings always wrong at RHC.

Aoki shows 6000 is Quivicán site; 6060, 6100 and 6165 [sic: still
haven`t QSYed it to 6145!] all Bauta site. So the possible Bauta
leapfrog mixing product spots would now be:

From 6060 & 6100: 6020 and 6120
From 6060 & 6145: 5975 and 6230
From 6100 & 6145: 6055 and 6190
But I haven`t heard any of these lately; are they being
suppressed/filtered better now, or one of the fundamentals too weak?
You might hear Spanish and/or English, depending (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9105, Dec 9 at 2025, JBA carrier from presumed Echo of
Hope. Ron Howard agrees and provides all the other landings this week,
the lower ones mostly audible in our mornings: ``Today (Dec 9): 3985
// 4890 // 6000 // 6255 // 6355 // 9105`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 13630, Dec 9 at 2021, W&M drama in rather slow English,
S9-S7. What`s this? CRI via Bamako as scheduled eastward, but not
noticed here lately and suspect it`s sporadically active (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 475.1 kHz, Dec 10 at 0319-0328 UT, very slow CW beacon, JBA
but as previously reported it is indeed the one Dave Frantz runs at
WWRB, Manchester TN. The message roughly twice a minute is: WWW WA4SZE
COM WA4SZE/BEACON K. Not sure what the COM mean amid. And WWW, not
VVV?

Here`s an interesting discussion about this from 2+ years ago:
https://www.eham.net/forum/view?id=topic=117878.0

I wonder if this beacon be recently reactivated? Can`t say I pay much
attention to ``630 meters``, but ran across this on the way to or from
the NDB band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, Dec 9 at 2019, VOA Grimesland in French with big
short/long path echo. See my Sept 16 log where I explained how this
worx and calculated the delay as one-eighth of a second (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2011 monitoring: confirmed Monday
December 9 from 1900:36 on IRRS, 7290, as monitored via UTwente SDR;
now WOR starts at the beginning, preceded by: 1858 tune-in big OC
already on; 1859:27 cut on modulation with Aïda theme joined in
progress, very brief IRRS sign-on announcement; 1900:05 FSN news
headlines: eruption in NZ, Russia banned for doping, UK supermarket
sold in China, taking only 31 seconds before WOR. After a bit of
music, 1930 FSN same stories in more detail; 1933 FSN Spotlight about
WTO vs Trump; 1935 pause and music; 1951 recheck DJ talking about
`Sounds Irish`. Alexander Busneag says all Romanian SW transmitters
are back in service, but this still sounds the same bigsig as before.

Also confirmed UT Tue Dec 10 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, VP S9 which = the
noise level when tuned to open 7770 etc. But good clear signal at 0107
when checked via UTwente where it`s aimed. Hello to all our 1/2/3 am
listeners in Europe. Next:

2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5800, Dec 10 at 0026, no signal from WRMI, which a week ago
moved here once RHC reclaimed 6060 where nothing but RHC is audible.
By 0157, maybe JBA carrier on 5800, while 5850 and 5950 are nominally
very good and poor-fair. Skedgrid now shows XMTR 3 on 5800 at 00-01
SMTV, 01-02 RAE Spanish (but what about weekends?), while at the
bottom inserts old 6060 as if still in use for SMTV at 2100-2400
before RHC cuts on.

Say, if this be the new reality and you still want to honor RAE by
reviving its legacy frequency 6060, why not move their hour to 2300
UT, which is prime time in Argentina, anyway? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13845, Dec 9 at 2023, no signal from WWCR-3. Since 15825 is
audible poorly and 12160 fairly, I conclude 13845 must be off the air
amid its very long 13-01 UT span (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 560 [non]. Replying to my query about Roman-numeral
frequency calls other than KLVI Beaumont: Carl Dabelstein: ``At one
time, the station in Phoenix on 1400 had the call KXIV.``

Rick Dau: ``Glenn, at least one other example comes to my mind
immediately -- WXVI-1600 in Montgomery, Alabama. The "XVI" portion, of
course, is the Roman numeral for "16", an affectionate reference to
WXVI's position on the AM dial. This is a station for which I have a
soft spot -- it was the very first to which I ever sent a reception
report. On February 13, 1988, while I was a student at the University
of Iowa (in what would turn out to be my final semester there), I did
a report on WXVI, which was airing Alabama State University men's
basketball that evening and identifying as "Sunshine 16". Being
somewhat new to serious DXing (my Iowa City AM logbook was just a
month old at that point and NRC member and Iowa City resident Earl
Higgins was still helping me get my feet wet), I was rather naive
about reporting pertinent (and verifiable) details of their
programming. In fact, my letter to them simply stated that I had heard
their broadcast of ASU basketball and IDs as "Sunshine 16", but it
included nothing solid, like local ads. As you can imagine, I did not
get a QSL for the report, but WXVI was at least kind enough to send me
a "Sunshine 16" bumpersticker. Fortunately, my 2nd report mailed, this
one for a reception of WOWO-1190 two weeks later, DID include mentions
of commercials, and I did get a nice QSL card in early March signed by
then-CE Eric Culp for QSL #1. 73, Rick Dau, South Omaha, Nebraska``

Well, well, I also got an earlier QSL when it was WAPX; call changed
to WXVI in the mid-1970s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Survey of CNR1 jammers, some only carriers on known
frequencies vs SOH, Dec 8 at 2318: 9180, 9215, stronger 9230.

At 2325, 9970, 10160; at 2328, 10820, 11070, 11000, 11120, 11170,
stronger 11440 & 11460.

At 2335, 7540 good with flutter, echo; this one vs RFA Tibetan via
Kuwait this hour only, unheard.

9900, Dec 8 at 2324, Firedragon music jamming mixing with something in
Chinese, this one against RTI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Dec 8 at 2309, R. Rebelde modulation during music is
cutting off and on, S9+25/30. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, Dec 9 at 0712, new? announcer at RHC concluding,
Charles McKeely(?), then 0713-0722 `DXers Unlimited` Arnie mumbling
something about no sunspots; 0722 opening `Mailbag`. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTEING DIGEST

** CUBA [and non]. 13700, Dec 9 at 1500, RHC much weaker than usual
here, S8-S9, vs much stronger OC on 13740 just before it turns off.
13700 is also too weak to produce any spurs, tsk2. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. 13700 eclipsed by 13710 Sa`udi Qur`aning at S9/+10,
normally much weaker by comparison (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9105, Dec 9 at 0708, JBA with flutter, presumed Echo
of Hope on this week`s jumparound frequency, nothing on 9100 or 9095.
Aoki of today agrees 9105 at 0600-0200. As of Dec 7 at 1128, Wolfgang
Bueschel remotely had this on 9099.993; the rest unresurveyed yet
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2011 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
December 8 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair S7-S9.

Also confirmed UT Monday December 9 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, fair S9-S8
but fading down/out by 0140.

Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 9 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, improved to better
S8-S9, and this time // 9395 is worse at only S4-S6, lowered MUF
tr*mping azimuth.

Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 9 from 0400 on Area 51 webcast; by 0429
check, closing via WBCQ 5130v is good S9+10.

Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 9 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, good S9/+10 with no
jamming. Next:

1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+, Sunday Dec 8 at 2314, WBCQ amid `Uncle Bill`s Melting
Pot` seems to be in a comedy routine, so not always music, promoted as
being Hawaiian this week. Poor reception. At 2335 & still 2355 rechex,
I notice that 7490 is in dead air! The 2330-2400 segment on Sundays
has long been an orphan slot, without even an entry on the schedule as
``available time slot``; but usually filled with music from
somesource. Would be nice if UBMP could occupy a full hour.

BTW, while checking UBMP at 2316, RF noise burst from my nearest
streetlight igniting right at local sunset, earliest of the year, but
would be a few minutes later were it not cloudy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 475 kHz, Dec 9 at 0715 UT, continuous weak CW as I am
dozing off; did not notice any DE definite ID, but could be this as
logged 11 months ago: ``U S A. 475 kHz, Jan 13 at 0701, WA4SZE/BEACON
on CW from Dave Frantz, of WWRB, Manchester TN`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5010-, Dec 8 at 2308, again unexplained LAH on the minus
side of WRMI; see yesterday`s speculation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13624.74 approx., Dec 9 at 1458, 2-way in Spanish
INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 300 kHz, Dec 8 at 0727 UT, dash and YIV, 500 watt ND beacon
from Island Lake, Manitoba; logged once before on Sept 16, when I
described its location.

340 kHz, Dec 8 at 0729 UT, dash and YY, 500 watt ND beacon from Mont
Joli, Quebec. I was tuned to 341 where it mixed with local EI, and
first thought it could be an attempt by YYU Kapuskasing to come back
from the dead. Mont-Joli is on the Gaspé coast, just NE of Rimouski,
2761 km from here = 1715 stmi.

352 kHz, Dec 8 at 0732, dash and YKQ, 500 watt NDB from Fort
Rupert-Waskaganish, Quebec. It`s a remote Cree community on James Bay,
but only 2250 km from here = 1403 stmi, atcf (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 5050, Dec 7 at 2314, Chinese talk, VP vs splash from 5040
RHC --- Commies vs Commies! Aoki/NDXC shows:
``5050 2300-0102 CHN Voice of Beibu Bay Radio Chi Nanning 954 1-7``
Their only morning broadcast; have several others in Thai, Vietnamese,
Cantonese, Mandarin. HFCC shows 100 kW at 232 degrees. WWRB is OFF
5050 for the B-season (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 6105, Dec 8 at 1355, Firedrake jamming atop a weaker
station, i.e. RTI. Besides showing RTI *jammed, separate entries for
CNR1 Jamming from Qiqihar 202 site, probably but not necessarily same
when employing Firedrake audio. BTW, don`t you believe! that XEQM
Mexico still exist on 6105 as in Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 7470, Dec 7 at 2325, Chinese with echo, i.e. CNR1 jammers
against RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan at 2200-2400. This used to be the
YHWH pirate frequency around 0300-0530 as in Aoki, but quit several
weeks ago. Worth further checking, as Rick Barton, AZ, just reported
YHWH again! on 11650 at 2000-2010* Dec 7; me too Dec 8 at 1900, q.v.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13767 approx., Dec 8 at 1416, weak spurblob from RHC 13700,
and even weaker JBA match circa 13633. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 9680, Dec 8 at 1445, Japanese alone on frequency. Aoki shows
NHK not starting until 1455, but HFCC shows 1400-, due west (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6145, Dec 8 at 1357, Korean talk and piano music
from Shiokaze via JAPAN; good and clear here, no jamming audible; the
latest frequency change reported by Ron Howard. The other one listed
by Aoki at 1300-1400, 7245 not checked (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970-USB, Dec 7 at 2201, `Hearts of Space` type soft
music, S7-S8, off by 2215, unID pirate, and strangely enough, zero
reports of it on HF Underground (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Dec 7 at 2202, FDR speech about Japan`s
attax on several Pacific islands, S8-S9 with background noise
apparently from crowd on original recording. 2206 the famous part
about Pearl Harbor; and then ``Remember Pearl Harbor`` song; 2210
another song, ``Mister Jap``; 2213 song ``I`m Off to Yokohama``; 2216
repeat the FDR ``infamy`` speech; 2224 ID as ``W-F-D-R, New York ---
Good Night`` as if closing down. But soon another? weaker station on
same frequency. Many more logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,61017.0.html
By 2300, WFDR resumed, on 6940-USB:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,61023.0.html
WFDR pirate broadcasts are an annual tradition on Dec 7
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Dec 7 at 2225, weak music shortly after
WFDR closed; 2232 maybe announcement, unreadable; 2310 still on with
some whoops and chimes. Other reports say WENO, Voice of Brian Eno:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,61020.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11650, Dec 8 at 1900, here`s the reactivated YHWH
guy, anti-Christ Josiah with usual earnest evangelism, poor S7. Tnx to
tip yesterday until 2010* by Rick Barton, AZ. Also check 40m evenings,
formerly in 03/05v span on 7470 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 341 kHz, Dec 8 at 0729 UT, Enid ND beacon EI is on again
in the nightmiddle, vs 340 YY in Quebec, see CANADA (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 6115, UT Sun Dec 8 at 0100, WWCR-1 opening `Encore`
classical music hour, VG except for usual squeal on the #1
transmitter. Playlist on website is still from last week ``1/12``.
Brice Avery says from next week, this moves to 9350 at 2100-2200
Saturdays, i.e. WWCR-2 without the squeal. 9350 has a super signal
here and there is much less conflict with other programming at that
time; and could also reach awake Europeans, altho nominally 85 degrees
toward Africa. That hour has been for Brother HyStairical, only on
Saturdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7490+, Dec 7 at 2200, Brother Scare
interrupted for WBCQ ID, then dead air instead of resuming. Scheduled
until 2300 on Saturdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 774, Dec 7 at 0708, starting TA carrier search here to find
this one strong enough for some audio, RNE1 synchros (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2011 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday December 8 starting at 0423 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, VG but with
some CW QRM from hams too close during huge 160m contest up to 1887
kHz. Next:

** U S A. 7780, Dec 8 at 1412, SMTV VP // 15770 WRMI; a rare instance
of two SMTV frequencies at once, 7780 only Sundays at 14-15 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Sat Dec 7 at 2313, WTWW-2 already on with ham talk
about 160m; S9+40 but overmodulated/distorted as it would be for
hours! By 0106 UT Sunday Dec 8 I notice that `Theater Organ in the
Ozarx` is underway as sometimes happens around this time, Xmasmx awful
with the distortion; also emitting intermittent huge noise bursts
ranging 5050-5110. At first I suspected some new Xmas lights in the
neighborhood, until found this confined to the 5085 area! 0402
recheck, still distorted with rock music. Doesn`t Ted know nor any of
his listeners tell him about this? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 3185, UT Sun Dec 8 at 0410, gospel huxtress S9 but
undermodulated; not // TOMBS frequencies. So WWRB now using 3185
instead of 3195 when on after 0200, UT Sun and maybe Mon (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5010-, Dec 7 at 2316, WRMI in Spanish vs a LAH = low
audible heterodyne from the minus side. Brings to mind Madagascar
offset, but not supposed to be on between 1500 and 0200 as per
Aoki/NDXC. Don`t you believe! that Honduras or Dominican Republic
exist on 5010 as shown there; they`ve been gone for years. OTOH, India
is NOT listed, but has been reported sometimes; not aware of it being
frequency-low. VU2JOS shows latest AIR info: ``5010 50
Thiruvananthapuram Kerala Malayalam S=zone 0020-0205 1130-1745
(Irregular)`` and 2316 should also be too early for it; unless
something special is going on there or in Madagascar. The two Bauta,
Cuba transmitters on 5040 & 5025 could also leapfrog to 5010, but at
least one of them would have to be off-frequency slightly, which does
not seem to be the case now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Dec 8 from 0709,
after hearing audio from 774 Spain synchros: 531, 549, 558, 567(2),
576, 585, 612, 621, 684, 693, 747, 765, 774(2), 837, 846(TP), 882,
909, 936, 999, 1089, 1107(2), 1116, 1125(2), 1134, 1152, 1179, 1215,
1413 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Dec 8 at 1330-1339
UT just at sunrise here, on the R75 with E-W LW, so no DFing but
probably E Asian more than DU: 558, 594, 612, 621, 657, 693, 702, 738,
747, 756, 774, 828, 873, 972, 1017, 1035, 1044, 1053, 1098, 1206,
1566, 1575 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6919.9-AM, Dec 7 at 2311, open carrier and off instead
of developing into a pirate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Dec 7 at 0715, Radio Rebelde music is overmodulated,
distorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba; 5040 RHC is off by
now this date (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Dec 7 at 1455, `Despertar con Cuba` wrapping with

** CUBA. 13766 & weaker 13633 approx., Dec 7 at 1502, spurblobs from
13700-AM, no others heard at multiple displacements of 66-67 kHz.
Better audible in AM than FM, mush in SSB. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 6220, Dec 7 at 0343 past 0409, S9 JBM maybe Arabic?
Presumably the jammer against Iran International TV, which however is
nowhere to be found in the 6.2s. Today`s Aoki/NDXC shows 6230 for
VOIRI in Arabic at 1200-0400; and 6270 for IITV via Armenia over
exactly the same timespan; without making the connexion that one is
trying but failing to jam the other. Iran is upset, cracking down on
IITV people inside the police state (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** IRELAND. 13264-USB, Dec 7 at 1456 VP VOLMET, i.e. Shannon,
scheduled 1200-1800 on here per EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 7525, Dec 7 at 1325 VP carrier, 1329 beeps, 1330 music
JBA. This would be the publicized special 40th anniversary broadcast
of the Asian Broadcasting Institute, site not specified but believed
to be UZBEKISTAN. An auspicious date --- no, not *that* one. I hardly
expected to hear this any better without a remote. It`s airing thrice,
yesterday, today and tomorrow. Ron Howard recorded the first one,
including a greeting in English from American Forces Network, Taiwan
--- not mentioning ABI and probably generic out of the archives. Show
is mainly in Japanese, anyway. ABI is a grandiose name for a DX club,
which I think back in the day did carry out useful research (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. Ron Howard clarifies my last report:

``Hi Glenn, A few minor points, regarding your nice survey of Korean
stations: 1) Frequencies listed would be "Surveying Echo of Hope - VOH
and Voice of the People." 2) 4557 is neither VOH nor VOP? Ron
California``

4557 was a Voice of the People frequency for many years, as in WRTH
2014 which I have at hand, but has been gone for some time while the
jammer persists just in case (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 13270-USB, Dec 7 at 1457, ``Sondrestrom --- no report
received``, says the same guy who worx for Trenton Military, where
NRRs are often replete, but this is Gander VOLMET. That`s the US base
on the SW coast of Greenland just north of Nuuk, tropical compared to
Thule. Gander still scheduled at hours plus :20-30 and :50-60, rest of
the time off in deference to defunct New York Radio. Gander might as
well expand to continuous, except that would triple its power
consumption (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 5995.095, Dec 7 at 0337, JBA carrier way off-frequency. Of
course! It`s the Al-Dhabbiya site, scheduled this hour only with BBC
Arabic, which apparently are not embarrassed to be associated with
such incompetence.

BTW, there is no entry for UAE at all on page 496 of WRTH 2019 in the
International department, where there should be at least for info
about the relay station. Is there in the 2020? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2011 monitoring: barely confirmed Saturday
December 7 at 1326 the secret 1300 airing on WRMI 15770, VP here but
hopefully much better NE of Okee toward Europe. Next:

** U S A. 5950, Dec 7 at 0712, dead air from WRMI during an SMTV
block, 0100-0800 per Aoki/NDXC. Which also claims WORLD OF RADIO is on
5950 at 0830-0900 Sundays --- I am never awake to check this myself,
but I think this has been gone for months replaced by Alameda Bible
Fellowship as on WRMI skedgrid --- but which also continues to show
WOR Wed at 1030 on 5950 System F programming; yet frequency sked above
shows another SMTV hour, presumably daily. Wouldn`t it be great if
everyone got their skeds updated/corrected to mesh with reality? If
anyone really hear WOR at this zzz time either, please let me know
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, Dec 7 at 0330, no signal from WRNO, one of our most
unreliable stations: but nothing of interest anyway, just
gospel-huxtering. Remember when they used to throw in newscasts from
DW? Just think: the original WRNO pioneered WORLD OF RADIO on SW, and
even rock music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1110, Dec 7 at 0704 UT, dead air from KFAB Omaha for at
least a minute; 0705 comes to life with KFAB Weather-Watch. I hasten
to null open carrier and try for WBT or anything else, but nothing
IDable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13653.6-USB approx., Dec 7 at 1459, 2-way INTRUDERS in
colloquial Spanish; one with engine noise addresses the other as
``capitán``.

13751-USB, Dec 7 at 1503, 2-way in Spanish INTRUDERS with good
signals, one with engine noise; no swearing immediately heard (Glenn
Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Correxion, it`s ``El Fonógrafo`` not ``El Fonógrago``


** MEXICO. 720, Dec 6 at 1351 UT, Spanish timecheck twice as ``7-48``,
presumably automated; ad repeating toll-free phone number 800-110-3130
--- I don`t think a US number could have 1 as the fourth digit; anyhow
it`s an ad for something costing 629 pesos ``sin gastos de envío``.
1354 another timecheck, for 7:50, and temp 8 grados centígrados; then
mentions ``El Fonógrafo``, the network 25 kW XEJCC Juárez sometimes
relays (but now during talk, not music), with a couple? frequencies,
one of them sounding like 650, which does not compute, must have been
690, XEN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
