Hauser
** BRAZIL. 11780, Feb 21 at 1457, Portuguese song, 1459 R. Nacional ID, S9 fading to S5; but gone by 1532 recheck. At least there was no ACI from 11775 Anguilla, off more than on. I wonder what the schedule of 11780 is, or is supposed to be? More or less daytime-only, and no use of 6180 at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 413 kHz, Feb 22 at 0728 UT, beacon YHD and dash, from Dryden, Ontario.
382 kHz, Feb 22 at 0731, beacon YPL and dash, from Pickle Lake, Ont
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 1610, Feb 22 at 1338 UT, strumming chords from NE/SW, 1340 UT Spanish and fading. There are no 1610 Americans except HAR/TIS. I have no luck with the Mexicans, but seems rather late for Toronto; yet CHHA ID in Spanish at 1401 UT, almost a bihour after its sunrise at 1205 UT, and almost a unihour after Enid`s at 1311 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA. 7170-7190 and 7130-7150, Feb 22 at 0355, very heavy DRM jamming spreading 20 rather than 10 kHz, centered about the Eritrean frequencies where not even carriers can be detected amid the noise. Jam peaks at S9 around 7140 and 7180 but the lower one unsounds quite as loud. All intruding messing up a lot of the worldwide exclusive ``40m`` hamband (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA. 7235.554, Feb 22 at 1408, JBA carrier, no doubt the widely variant R. Ethiopia by longpath; no jamming or Eritreans audible now below 7200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. 15215, Feb 21 at 1600, JBA carrier as I am checking for the yearly broadcast of Radio ÃÃmrang via FRANCE. Yet S9+ signals from 15620 dead air listed as VOA Somali via Woofferton; 15435 Saudi.

By 1607 I`m on UTwente, and there it is, rather off-mike conversations in Frisian? with background noise. Reminiscing presumably. Not a solid signal as UTwente is too close to Issoudun. Perhaps they are doing better into New York City target? 1615 switches to English, ``didn`t know anything about pregnancy...`` and back to (high?) German. Something about ``4 pm``, etc. Did not cut off until about 1702*.

Tnx to our reminder several hours earlier on the WOR iog, several others were tuning it, including John A Figliozzi in FL:

``Booming into southwest Florida with a rather relaxed program as if speakers are moving around a room (kitchen?) with people coming and going (doors opening and closing?). Radio Oomrang and its strictly once a year idiosyncratic program, mostly in German with a little English heard now and then and also presumably the Frisian dialect. Program is either a play of some sort or a very relaxed informal conversation among friends. Numerous sounds of boots walking, doors closing and chairs moving. Excellent signal heard from 1628 tune in - SIO 545. WRTH â18 says using Issoudun transmitter in France. (21 Feb.)
John Figliozzi, Sarasota, FL, Sony ICF-2010 (off whip)``

And also better into California, from Ron Howard:

``15215, Radio ÃÃmrang via Issoudun (France). Thanks to Glenn for the timely alert! Carrier on-off and on again at 1559; briefly on at 1600, then cut off, but came back on again; seemed to be in German, local language and English; "Hello. This is Radio ÃÃmrang, the freedom voice of ÃÃmrang," "this hour for New York ÃÃmrang inhabitants"; interview with a couple married 52 years.

Glenn - your "4 pm" was "4 o'clock pm. It's very cold. We are interviewing the young landlord"; several spots with just the sound of seagulls or with announcers talking over the sound of seagulls; some audio hum. My audio of mostly English posted at
http://app.box.com/s/f7slayi6nx6adlj6rmfuxrz9f6gc2tkq
Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, EtÃn E1, 100' long wire``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 7520, Feb 22 at 0354, poor S4-S6, presumed Kurdish music from Denge Welat via ARMENIA; if also on 7320, can`t hear vs 7315 WHRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Feb 22 at 1327 UT, KGYN Guymon now with VG signal during M-F poetry spot by Jim Thompson; then about an app for market info; ad for grocery in Northridge Mall, Top Value with the ``add 10 percent`` gimmick; Enid now has one of these, different name. Official Feb FCC sunrise for KGYN is not until 1330 UT, but don`t let that stop them already running ND 10 kW; March: 1300 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7780, Feb 22 at 0353, TOM via WRMI is poor S4-S6, // much stronger 7730. I haven`t heard unscheduled 7780 much later at night like Ivo once noted. WRMI skedgrid continues to unshow anything on #1, 7780 between 0300 and 1700 (except other religionism Sundays only 13-16) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WRMI

** U S A. 410 kHz, Feb 22 at 0729, beacon EGQ, from Emmetsburg, Iowa.
392 kHz, Feb 22 at 0731 UT, beacon FMZ, from Fairmont - Beklof, Nebraska (note that Beklof spelt backwards is Folkeb), 25 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15620, Feb 21 at 1601, S9+10 of dead air; I can only assume it is as scheduled in HFCC: VOA Somali, 250 kW, 126 degrees from Woofferton UK at 1600-1800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1918 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday February 21 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490.05v, very good S9+10/20, and not #1917 which was not aired last week. Enjoy such reception while we can, as latening sunsets progressively degrade this propagation, and a drastic retiming to 2100 in three weeks due to the imposition of daylight shifting will worsen it even more. (BTW, add OK to the list of states with pending legislation to keep DST going all year!) Also confirmed UT Thu Feb 22 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB. Next:
Thu 2230.5 WRMI 5850 to NW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.320v-CUSB, Feb 22 at 1415, WBCQ fair with TOM, lately staying on the hi side in the .2s or .3s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

** U S A. 9395, Feb 21 at 1457, WRMI Oldies with VOA News in progress; before turning it Over to the Comer at 1500.

7780, Feb 22 at 1413, WRMI Oldies is on this Thursday, // much stronger 9395. Yet sked grid shows 7780 supposed to be off; see also SOUTH CAROLINA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, Feb 21 at 1418, WRMI, speaking Spanish with a Brazilian accent, too-quick SW sked info about Spain, Taiwan, Korea, Egypt, various Brazilians as on air 00 a 24; audio is also condensed with certain syllables skipped; via Skype?? Outro as someone from the DX Clube sem Fronteiras em Pernambuco, on `Frecuencia al DÃa` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Feb 21 at 0704, WTWW-1 is S3-S5 of dead air; no loss (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1190, Feb 22 at 1325 UT, 1190 Fort Wayne ``Wo-wo`` ID with FM 107.5, which is a mere translator W298BJ. 50000/9800 U2. I haven`t heard this one in ages. There are two MO stations in between and many others. Must now be on ND full day power since 1230 UT in Feb, 1200 UT in March. Night pattern is tight N/S in deference to WLIB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1290, Feb 22 at 1329 UT, outro `Focus on Agriculture` from CSP? radio network, Wichita Falls closings due to icy weather, Cinemark Theatres` new size restrixions on carry-in bags, (evidently to discourage dismantled rifles or large bombs) from News Channel 6 (KAUZ RF 22). (I also heard same story on 1330 KCKM Monahans, about Mid/Essa. Enid`s only movie theatre is no longer Cinemark, but AMC under ChiCom control, so guns OK?) KWFS is licensed 5000/73 U1, but noticeably weaker in daytime lately with STA renewed of reduced power to 60%, i.e. about 3 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 21 at 0309-0315: 531, 621, 711, 747, 855(2), 882, 909, 936*, 1116, 1152, 1215, 1431, 1575. *936 often has a bigger signal; what`s likely? Morocco 100 kW, tho there are equal or higher powers in Syria, Saudi, Iran; while in Europe nothing more than 3 x 20 kW in Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13564.316-CW, Feb 22 at 1444, HIFER beacon called RF, vs CODAR, but no K6FRC audible nearby yet. Probably east of here rather than west. LWCA roster has it on 13564.330, location still unknown more precisely than grid EM96 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15630.039, Feb 21 at 1534, weak wobbling carrier. If not a local device, HFCC shows imaginary wooden entry for RSOman at 1400-1730; even more likely Cairo which supposedly uses 15630 via Abis only at 1300-1400 in Persian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 88.1 MHz approx., Feb 21 at 1750, 1757, 1804, 1811 UT, very fast CW ID ending with R is firing like clockwork every 7 minutes. I notice this since I am trying to listen to my Part 15 FM feeder on 88.1 with input from some TV station I want to hear on a remote radio in the house. Presumably from a local ham repeater on 2 meters, or maybe 6? This has happened before, and I am not sure whether my feeder is involved in this or not, but I haven`t figured out how an IF mix or anything would wind up on this frequency. I haven`t heard it on any other radio tuned to 88.1. Maybe sometime I will be able to copy the ID (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780, Feb 19 at 2140, RNA is on with news about AmazÃnia rather than `A Voz do Brasil`; 2159 outro as `Reporte da AmazÃnia`, from the EBC studios in BrasÃlia, 2200 opening `A Voz do Brasil` --- just as I expected, back to normal non-DST timing of 22-23 weekdays, while last week it was still a real hour earlier at 2100-2200 and then off abruptly. Presumably stays on another hour now until 2300*. This shift also applies to countless other Brazilian stations which must carry the government`s program (altho some of them are allowed to delay it further to a more convenient time in their schedules) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 341 kHz, Feb 20 at 0732 UT, YYU and dash, 500-watt beacon from Kapuskasing, Ontario; vs local EI Enid.
362 kHz, Feb 20 at 0734 UT, SB and dash, 400-watt beacon from Sudbury, Ontario. CCI from OWP; see OKLAHOMA.
366 kHz, Feb 20 at 0735 UT, YMW and dash, 500-watt beacon from Maniwaki, Quebec (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, Feb 20 at 0717, RHC manages to get the right language, English on this frequency, unlike last night, but it`s just barely modulated at S7. 6100 is S9+20 also undermodulated with some hum and crackle; about same level is 6000. And 6060 also in correct language, also hum but less noticeable with more modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 362 kHz, Feb 20 at 0734 UT, beacon OWP from Sand Springs -- William Pogue, power unknown, mixed with SB and dash from Sudbury, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Feb 20 at 0724, JBA carrier, presumed SIBC already, vs intermittent ute pulses, sweeps, and ACI from 5025 Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1917 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday February 20 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, very good; also confirmed at same time on WBCQ 9330.25v-CUSB, only half as strong but still sufficient. And almost synchronized about 1 second apart.

WORLD OF RADIO 1918 contents: Australia, Bougainville, Brasil, Canada, Cuba, Czechia and non, Ethiopia non, Europe, Germany, GuantÃnamo Bay, International Internet & Vacuum, Iran, Italy non, Korea South, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Romania, Russia, South Carolina non, Taiwan, Uganda non, USA and non; and the propagation outlook

WOR 1918 ready just in time for first airing Tuesday February 20 at 2030 on WRMIs, and confirmed, JBA on 7780, fair on 9455; again at 2130 on 9455 only, fair. I was hustling to get it done ASAP, as we are into an ice storm: no power outage here yet but some flickers. Light icing so far on utility lines and antennas. A second wave is expected on Feb 21 with no melting before then.

Altho 1918 was available 3 hours earlier, WOR 1917 still replayed on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, JBA UT Wed Feb 21 at 0030. (With WRMI it`s my responsibility to upload new show ASAP to its servers; with WBCQ I have to depend on someone there taking notice and downloading it.)

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1560, Feb 19 at 2100 UT, KEBC OKC sportstalk with an understation making a rippling fast SAH, and a 5+1 timesignal of the kind usually heard on foreign SW stations; then believe I heard ``Omaha`` mentioned, so that would be KLNG, 10 kW ND daytimer in Council Bluffs IA.

MWOffsets has no entry for KLNG, but KEBC and two other major 1560s:
http://www.mwlist.org/mwoffset.php?khz=1560
1560 1559.9302 USA KGOW (Bellaire (D), TX) 2010-08-29
1560 1559.9891 USA KEBC (Del City (D), OK) 2018-01-23
1560 1559.999 USA KKAA (Aberdeen, SD) 2007-03-03
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST

UNIDENTIFIED. 1590v, Feb 19 at 2059 UT on caradio, a medium het QRMing KVGB Great Bend KS, ID with translator. In DXLD 16-15, KWBG Boone IA (near Des Moines) was suggested as the off-frequency one; listed now as 1000/500 watts U2, and would be on ND day pattern this early, but skywave already coming in topend. Night pattern goes NW, bad for us, when I also have a bad 1590 het, but maybe else from something local.

Top ``1590`` entry at mwoffsets is in fact KWBG, i.e. the one furthest off to the low side, but it`s 8+ years old, i.e. a ~332 Hz het against KVGB if both still apply:
http://www.mwlist.org/mwoffset.php?khz=1590
1590 1589.664 USA KWBG (Boone, IA) 2009-09-27
compared to my two closest:
1590 1589.9957 USA KVGB (Great Bend, KS) 2017-10-01
1590 1589.9961 USA KWEY (Weatherford, OK) 2018-01-23 [direxional away]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5800, Feb 20 at 0722, JBA S2-S3 carrier, intriguing; nothing listed in Aoki, EiBi or HFCC. Does not compute as WWCR or RHC mixing product (latter does put a weakie on 6230 whenever 6100 & 6165 are both on). Maybe a ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 382 kHz, Feb 19 at 0704 UT, beacon YPL and dash, 1000 watts from Pickle Lake, Ont. Spring is nigh, and some lightning crashes are starting, worse on lower frequencies, which may curtail such DXing before long (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, UT Mon Feb 19 at 0246, RHC is undermodulated --- and in Spanish instead of English! In fact it`s `En Contacto` wrapping up early from nominal 0235 start, just the same as I had it 12 hours earlier. Only 6000 is on now in English, the others Spanish: 5040, 9535, 9640; 11760 VP dead air or something else?

Recheck at 0508, 6165 is still Spanish, not // 6000 music in English service. 6165 still Spanish, hum and undermodulated, at 0644. At 0646, 6060 is also Spanish with big hum, instead of English after 0600. Something`s always wrong at RHC. At least 6000 now has good modulation and lite hum during music in presumed solo English hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, UT Mon Feb 19 at 0512-0521, Arnie Coro confirmed reactivated `DXers Unlimited`, only 9 minutes long, mostly about propagation, citing WWV info without credit, and OK1HH, the propagation info from PIG I would quote on MN+. Except for canned open & close, he`s lo fi via phone as usual from home; deep fades impede 100% copy. Content is about the same as he uttered on Spanish DX program; convergence of the two to be expected with the same guy in charge (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370-AM, Feb 19 at 1425, no FM spurs detected today; something`s not wrong at RHC. Seems modulation has been decreased, maybe reducing the spewage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7236.280, Feb 19 at 1410, substantial carrier no doubt from R. Ethiopia long-path; keeps drifting upward as I try to measure it, but nailed here at 1416. Also weaker JBA carriers from the Eritreans not remeasured precisely, 7181.55, 7140.0+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA [and non]. 6155, Feb 19 at 0253, African music S9-S7, 0300 Channel Africa ID. I was not expecting to hear this before scheduled *0300, so a prÃlude? Or was it the otherstation scheduled 0200-0300, BBCWS in English via Oman? Did not notice any transmission transition (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESTE)

** U S A. 347 kHz, Feb 19 at 0704 UT, beacon AFK, which is Nebraska City, NE. Classaxe says power unknown and notes the ID is fast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1917 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria confirms:

``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 CUSB, Feb 18
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2018/02/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_18.html
1131-1200 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sun, weak/fair``

I confirmed UT Monday February 19 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9330.30v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed from 0400 UT Mon Feb 19 on Area 51 webcast, and via WBCQ, 5129.83, fair-good at 0414. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 19 at 0436 the 0430 on WRMI 9455 S9+10/20 and weaker // 9955 (just a semihour earlier both were JBA). Next:
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1918?]

** U S A. 9330.241v-CUSB, Feb 19 at 1553, WBCQ BS is poor; had been rather stable around 9330.3 the last few days (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 5830, Feb 19 at 1552, WTWW-1 is missing from both day and night frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, Feb 18 at 1911 UT and 2048 UT chex, KLEY Wellington KS is still totally SNAFU as described before, since first discovered Feb 14, but may have been that way much earlier; now I intend to reconfirm at least once a day: likewise Feb 19 at 1515 UT. Incredible that anystation would let this go on and on and on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1260, Feb 19 at 1521 UT, YL in Spanish is atop, presumably the one I have heard before, KDLF, Boone IA (Des Moines market = De Los Monjes). NRC AM Log shows the other SS 1260s are in: AR-silent, FL, ID, SC, TX, some of them religious. Now rather than Spanish from 1250 KS, 1270 TX which are more common (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 19 at 0648: conditions not as good as have been, but detect: 531, 558, 567, 585, 603, 693, 747, 837, 855, 882, 999, 1089, 1098, 1125(2), 1215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** ANGUILLA. 11775, Feb 18 at 1502, PMS is on again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 413 kHz, Feb 18 at 0738 UT, beacon YHD and dash. It`s 250 watts at Dryden, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15514, 15438, 15297 approx., Feb 18 at 1434-1441, traces of spurblobs out of 15370-AM RHC, but not demodulating in FM mode, only dead giveaway F# tones. Almost, but not totally suppressed yet.

15370, Sunday Feb 18 at 1435, RHC starting `En Contacto` DX program. S9+30 but undermodulated with hum. Arnie Coro is back on air via phone after surgery, sounds like before with extremely rapid Spanish speech as if there`s no tomorrow. Topix include winter propagation, no sunspots, geomag storm, Bouvet DX-pedition aborted, 24 Feb a few days away will celebrate anniversary of the first broadcast by `Onda Corta Experimental Cubana`` in 1961y on historic 11760 frequency; 1444 a letter from Gabriel GÃmez, CX2BI in Uruguay; 1446 wrapping up early, credit spiel including ``su locutora Marta RÃos``; fills with long version of theme music which includes Morse code, but next show, `En CÃa del Dr`, still starts early at 1447 instead of 1450. I guess Arnie may also be back in English `DXers Unlimited` on Sun & Tue plus following UT days (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7490, Feb 18 at 1544, Brother Hysterical is on this WWCR // 9980. Now scheduled on 7490 at 15-16 on Sundays only. WWCR must have had an open hour to fill with *something* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. Dave Frantz of WWRB writes me Feb 18: ``Greetings!! We are pleased to alert the listeners of shortwave radio that Radio Munasi [sic] will return on WWRB weekends on 15240. power will be 100 kW. during the day time in the afternoon Eastern time, exact times to be determined`` --- so I suppose not already today, but check:

15240, Feb 18 at 1643, no signal yet. However, previously it was usually weak, too close at one megameter for solid prop, just like 15825 WWCR; a bit of HF sporadic E can make all the difference for us, but Uganda? How well did it ever make it over there by multi-hop F2? Our South African monitor, Bill Bingham, was not hearing much of it.

WRTH 2017 listing said in the COTB sexion, page 517:

``Target: UGANDA (UGA) --- RADIO MUNANSI (Clan), 7035 Laurel Canyon Blvd # 15333, North Hollywood, CA 91615. Phone: 1 818 5348273 (Studio). W: radiomunansi.com. Webcast: L/P. kHz: 15240.
Winter schedule 2016/2017
Luganda/English 1600-1900 Sat/Sun UGA 15240wrb
Notes: Internet-based opposition radio station, on SW since May 2016``

I bet that address is a mail drop. It had been off the air for a year; my report from 2017: ``** U S A. 15240, Sunday February 26 at 1838, still *no* signal from WWRB, altho neighbor 15825 WWCR is detectable. Radio Munansi not heard since February 4, and assumed canceled. No further non-logs from here, until/unless it or something appear on 15240 from WWRB weekends``

IIRC the Munansi website never got around to mentioning the WWRB SW broadcasts, nor does it now; but a ``recent podcast`` is dated 15 Feb *2015*! Perhaps the latest political strife in Uganda has prompted them to resume. The aboutus page says:

``Radio Munansi is a community radio station that seek to stimulate, educate and entertain our audience, to reflect the diversity of the local and world community, and to provide a channel for individuals, groups, issues and music that have been overlooked, suppressed or under-represented by the current Ugandan government.

Radio Munansi advocates for peace, social and environmental justice through independent media and programming neglected by the mainstream. We embrace diversity, tolerance of others` opinions and freedom of expression. Radio Munansi celebrates and promotes the creative, cultural and political vitality of the local community`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 365 kHz, Feb 18 at 0752 UT, beacon ID as AA. Dxinfocentre says it`s at Fargo-Harwood ND, while classaxe adds ``Kenie, Fargo, axually just over the border in MN``. I was really tuned to 363 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1917 monitoring: confirmed by Alan Roe, Teddington UK: ``GERMANY: PCJ Media Network Plus followed by World of Radio heard with fair reception via Hamburger Lokal Radio on 9485 kHz from 1120 UT tune-in`` Sunday Feb 18. Next:
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 1460, Feb 18 at 1425 UT, nice rendition of ``Clair de Lune`` on piano, quite a relief from all the stupid sports / political / religious chatter on most MW frequencies, whence? 1430 UT promos for EWTN Radio, all with times in Eastern; 1431 UT `EWTN Bookmark` author interview. Should be easy to look up EWTN affiliates in NRC AM Log: certainly is not WQOP Jacksonville FL, nor WOPG Albany NY, nor WHIC Rochester NY, which are really in EST zone.

Must be KHOJ, Saint Charles MO, 12000/210 watts U4, ``Heart Of Jesus Radio`` despite being in CST zone. Why does EWTN, based in Alabama, also Central, insist on citing times in Eastern only? Perhaps God has annointed ET as supreme. Just another example of timezone imperialism which is even easier for east-coast-based networx (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 517 kHz, Feb 18 at 0735, mix of beacons, the best call I can pull out is HCW, but nonesuch or similar listed by classaxe or dxinfocentre. I`ve been trying to hear anything besides the two Okies on the 500 kHz band, PN Ponca City 515 which is quite strong here day and night, and HMY Lexington 512, south of OKC (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
