Typo on header of previous report: April 4, 2024, not 2023

** CANADA. 15034 USB, April 5 at 1527, Trenton Military, ``no report
received`` several in a row. Other random acrosstunes lately, also
6754 USB at night, hit nothing received. Is it completely unfunxional
yet again? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5025, April 5 at 0709, S9+40 of dead air in Spanish; thus
can`t be positive whether it`s not R. Rebelde, not RHC, or even not
Habana Radio. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** KUWAIT. 15540, April 5 at 1820, checking for the alleged 18-21 UT
English from R. Kuwait: NO signal, AM nor DRM, into Kuwait SDR;
UTwente seems to have an S7 open carrier with het, synchlocking onto
15540.129, who knows what (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, April 5 at 0711, no signal from ORTM, not even noise
blob (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Friday April 5 at 2200, token English from SNR,
S9+20/40 direct, feature preview to be about World Health Day, but I
don`t have time to listen (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAJIKISTAN [and non]. 13809.917, April 5 at 1532, two stations
mixing making low audible heterodyne. Per Aoki A24, RFA Chinese via
Dushanbe at 15-17, but which one is the jammer? Into UTwente at 1647
same horrible mix but synchlox onto frequency as measured above.
Jammer off at 1700* after CNR1 timesignal, victim off a few seconds
later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 17815, April 5 at 1525, S9/+20 in Turkish, the SSOB >
17790, 17600. TRT now sked 13-16, 500 kW, 310 degrees for W Europe but
also USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, April 5 at 2200, VOT English S9+20/30 direct but
vs high local line noise level. At 2232 I`m on UTwente when measured,
S9+40, `Turkish Folk Tale` with a moral about doing good. 2237 music.
2241 `That`s Why`, the badax about greeting each other, salaam, music.
2250 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2252 s/off, 2253 IS to 2255* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Line noise level abated somewhat on SW, but still severe on
MW and worst on LW; yet a couple are JBA from the periphery, April 5
at 0701 UT, 305 kHz RO, ROswell NM; and 326 kHz, MA, MidlAnd TX; both
400 watts per RNA Signals List (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2237 monitoring: Confirmed Friday
April 5 at 2030 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1323 kHz, S8/S9 into UTwente,
with some ACI from 1314. Since this was off the air last week, I was
concerned so checked earlier at 1830 when it was on with timesignal,
IRRS ID and Feature Story News. Also before 2030 it was AWR
`Wavescan`.

Also confirmed first SW airing, Friday April 5 at 2200 on WRMI 9955,
under S9+20 line noise level direct.

Confirmed new time of Friday April 5 at 2230 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975.002, S9+10 into UTwente - except last week`s #2236 was still
replaying. I hope they will get the new one on ASAP henceforth. Next:

minutes or so all about the total solar eclipse; they are excited
because WBCQ is right in the path of totality. Then about nutrition,
from French fries to vegies. 0052 music. 0054 taking emails. Amazing
absence of delusional politix for a change. 0059 prayer running into
Hal Turner time as usual, JIP about a semiminute late (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** IRELAND. 8957 USB, April 4 at 0643, S2/S3, YL voice with flight
weather, mentioned Durban a few times? Must have been Dublin, because

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated April 4:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** ARGENTINA [non]. A Dario in Italy asked me whether RAE relay in
Italian is really airing at 12-13 M-F on 15770 as in WRMI skedgrid. I
try very hard to be asleep at that hour, but it shows another Italian
at 16-17 Mon-Thu on 15770, so I check that at 1610 Wed Apr 3: dead air
JBA into UTwente, and definitely dead air into Maine SDR. RAE relays
are extremely unreliable. There was also dead air at 1430 on 9955,
supposedly RAE in French. At best, there would be multilingual RAE IDs
over and over, but no programming. Note: ``dead air`` means a signal
transmitted but no modulation. If there is no signal at all, don`t
call it dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [and non]. 13650, April 2 at *2325, NHK IS starts, mixing
about equally into UTwente with CRI ``Portuguese`` fill music only
from 2300 on Cuban relay as has been the case for years. NHK
Vietnamese sked to start at 2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KUWAIT. 11970 & 15530, April 3 at 0502, and several chex past 0619,
NO signals from R. Kuwait into Kuwait SDR and UTwente. There used to
be two sesquihours of English at 05-08. At 0548 however, OTH radar was
hitting 11970. Yet WRTH A24 update also as of April 3:

``English Days Area kHz
0500-0800 daily Eu 15530kbd
0500-0800 daily SAs 11970kbd (D, i)
1800-2100 daily Eu 15540kbd (D, t)``
Does the 15540 broadcast exist, either? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed April 3 at 2200, SNR finally gets its new NAm
frequency going on 4th day of A24 season, sufficient on DX-398 with
reelout clipon, but some deep fades. Topic to be the only museum in
the world about the Spanish Civil War, which is not in Spain, but
Canada! But first the news, leading with Spain recognizing Palestine
in the UN as an independent country? 2208 A24 sked in future tense but
this is the future, again nothing specific about English. 2209 feature
interview with a founder of that museum. I listen to the whole thing
but they never mention *where* in Canada it be! FYI, Canada is almost
20X the area of Spain. They did mention a website, once toward the end
so I could not copy it. So I go to google.

There is a *virtual* SCWM based in Barcelona,
https://spanishcivilwarmuseum.com/
and three other cities in Spain have some kind of lead. I never heard
about it being virtual during the interview, but here`s one with a
Canadian URL, still hiding any physical location:
https://www.vscw.ca/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.007, April 3 at 2200 check into DX398 with clipon,
VOT English confirmed active but quite inferior direct to Spain 17855
so that`s what I mainly listen to. Via UTwente at 2253 when measured,
S9+45/50, s/off as if the 1230 on 17620, and IS. 2256 restart IS with
German IDs interspersed. 2300 timesignal and s/on German, possibly
correct times and frequencies of earlier non-extraneous German.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Wakes up and chops it off at
2311.7* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17690.000, April 3 at 1710, R. Martí in Spanish toward
Ukraine, ex-17680, audible at Maryland SDR but too close to NC.
S9+10/20 into UTwente --- also with ticking OTH radar ranging
17670-17710, suspiciously as if employed for jamming, but no bother on
center frequency at UTwente where measured. And radar gone by 1741
recheck.

Strangely enough, neither 17690 nor 17680 in latest HFCC April 3, the
only GB entries on 16m being VOA on 17530, 17850. Lower RMs for Cuba
do appear. Nor does 17865, if that still apply for R. Martisky on
weekends 13-17; no conflicts there. 17680 is out because now it`s NHK
via France at 17-19 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2236 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
April 2 at 2330 on WRMI 9395, S8/9+10 into UTwente, surprisingly good
since it`s aimed NNW.

Also confirmed new time of Tuesday April 2 at 2330 on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975.002, S9/+5 into UTwente - just as I am announcing the
SWR WOR times but before this additional one was known.

Not confirmed Wednesday April 3 at 1400 on WRMI 9955, secret time but
had been there for several months, rather finally running as per sked,
`Frecuencia al Día`, in Spanish, VP direct, confirmed as that via
webcast at 1427. WOR had been on sked Thursday at 1400 (1500 winter),
but never airing, and now that is off the sked anyway. Altho heard
this week, I also see that the WOR, UT Tue 0330 on 7780 has been
eliminated. 1430 M-F on 9955 is supposedly RAE, Argentina in French
but abnormally nothing but multilingual IDs over and over, yet today
it was silence with transmitter still on the air. Something`s odd at
Okeechobee. More at separate WRMI log below.

WOR confirmed Wednesday April 3 from 1931 on SW Radio, Germany,
6160.001, S9+10 and 3975.001, S9+5/15, into UTwente.

Confirmed Wednesday April 3 at 2109 the 2100 on WBCQ, 7490-, S7/S9
into Maryland SDR. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
1630 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 6160

** CUBA [and non]. 15140, April 2 at 2222, RHC Spanish running way
late, S9+10/20 in Spanish; 15230 S9/+10 but JBM and not //,
probably Portuguese. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 11760 at
2225 with Chinese! music, S9+10/20. HFCC shows that`s CRI
``Portuguese`` via Xi`an to Europe, i.e. fill music instead just like
the Cuba relay at 23-24 on 13650, which is still running at 2310
check, and all other ``Portuguese`` from CRI. Anyhow, at this hour RHC
is OFF 11760 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT [non]. 9440, April 2 at 2227, S9+10/20 in English, but not
Cairo which if it ever reactivate at 2115-2245 will have a problem.
BBCWS now sked this hour only, 200 degrees via USAGM Tinang,
PHILIPPINES, yet sufficient way back here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, April 2 at 0705 UT, SW, ND beacon at
StillWater! First time heard since Nov 24, 2023. Local line noise
level abated a bit, and red noise limiter on NRD545 helps; despite
storm noise now from eastern OK. But I should have been able to detect
at least a carrier on nightly/daily LW bandscans, so presumed just
reactivated after another protracted outage. I wonder if tornadoes in
the area prompted a turn-on? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11800, April 2 at 2218. RRI English S9+10/20 direct, an
alternative to Turkey 11785 (Glenn Hauser, oK, WOR0

** SPAIN. 17855, April 2 at 2219, still no signal from REE`s NAm
transmitter, but only Spanish on Tue. 17715 for SAm certainly
propagating, better than usual, S9+10/20 direct about equal to ME
channel 15520. Something`s notright at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785.009, April 2 at 2216, S9+20/30 direct, VOT
English with multi-lingual ID filler reel; 11780 RNA Brasil also on
today at S9+10/20 but not a problem. 2248 into UTwente when measured,
VG but strength not noted, promo for TRT World, music; 2250 new promo
for TRTEnglish.com; 2251 s/off by the badax as if this were the
``twelve-dirty to dirteen-dirty`` on 17620 only, plus satellite
parameters, and IS until off at 2255.5*. Something`s always awry at
Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Some NDBs JBA, April 2 after 0705 UT, with local
line noise slightly abated and red noise limiter engaged on NRD545,
and despite storm noise from eastern OK: 293, FBY FairBurY NE; 326, MA
MidlAnd TX; 332, QT Thunder Bay ON; 353, LI, LIttle Rock AR; 379, RU
RUssellville AR - really RUE but for longtime dropping the E. See also
OKLAHOMA for 255, SW. Several more carriers only, I could make likely
guesses from experience. Nothing ``new``, which would require
near-eliminating the line noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2236 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday April 2 at 0339 the 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9+5/12 into Durango2
SDR. This time plays to completion 0359. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW
2330 UT Tuesday SW Radio, Germany 3975 [NEW]
1200 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1230 UT Wednesday Unique R, NSW 5035-USB or 3210-USB

1400 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [also web-, phonecast; jammed?]

** YEMEN [non].11935, horrible noise finally replaced by Arabic,
modulation a bit choppy, S6/S8 into UTwente at 1913 April 2 == and at
1916, Republic of Yemen Radio ID in Arabic! 1918 militaristic song.
That confirms what we have been following around from 11860 to 11820
to 11915 to 11935, via Riyadh, Sa`udi Arabia. I keep listening
continuously, lots of good music and no transmission breaks, but *2030
edged by 11940 ACI of CRI fanfare, i.e. Bulgarian via Kunming. Could
still listen on 11935 LSB. Recheck direct at 2226: no signal on 11935;
nor into UTwente at 2246 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
