WOR iog)

** CUBA [and non]. 13767, 13633 and 13564 approx., Dec 1 at 1451-1453,
spurblobs out of 13700 RHC, not much program audio but more of it on
AM than FM. The lower one is QRMing 13565 K6FRC beacon: I knew this
would happen sooner of later. The upper one is also QRMing something
on 13765: Radio Farda via Lampertheim, Germany. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760 & 15140, Sunday Dec 1 at 1602, RHC starting weekly
Esperanto late after protracted full ID in Spanish for these two SW
frequencies and the FMs. Esp`o eventually gives sked as Sunday 0800 on
6100; 1600 on 11760 (only!), 2230 on 15730 (I think). But Wolfgang
Bueschel keeps reporting including today that the 0800 broadcast is
not heard on 6100 or any other 49mb frequency. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. Something else wrong: the announcer can`t help but
pronounce politiko as polítiko as if it were Spanish, while Esperanto
is invariable on penultimate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Nov 30 at 2353, VP carrier under Cuban jamming; Radio
Chaski cutting off this time at 2355:17.5*. That`s 3.5 seconds earlier
than 24 hours ago Nov 29 until 2355:21*, almost twice the expected
slippage. What`s next? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. Re my Nov 30 log: ``UNIDENTIFIED. 1521, Nov 30 circa
1840 UT = local mean noon, ~1 kHz het upon 1520 KOKC, on caradio, but
it`s fleeting. IIRC last winter there were signs of this in broad
daylight, and it seemed not inconceivable that with low winter suns,
the two megawatts from Sa`udi Arabia could be skywaving such a trace
this far, this early. But then there`s that other off-frequency
American, much closer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

This report at almost exactly the same time is a nice correlation:

``Saudi on 1521 at 13:44 local time (EST) Nov 30 --- Fair Arabic talk
on 1521 at 13:44 local. Hoping for a promising afternoon! (Sylvain
Naud, Portneuf, QC, Perseus + 290m / 950ft @ 55 degrees, IRCA iog via
DXLD)``

Distancefromto Enid measures: 12,278 km = 7,629 stmi --- But looking
at the map, that`s to somewhere in central SA! NOT Duba near the NW
corner just down the coast from Aqaba. Maybe there is another Duba,
perhaps with a different Arabic spelling?

We have always thought the 1521 transmitter is at the NW corner Duba,
and indeed that`s the one linked from mwlist:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Duba+Saudi+Arabia/@27.3251367,35.6459635,12z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x15ac30ffe49c9adf:0xb3627ff4b721a662!8m2!3d27.346154!4d35.7247925

Or via Wikipedia: Coordinates of the town:
27°20′57.3″N 35°41′46.2″E / 
27.349250°N 35.696167°E /

The great circle path to Enid crosses UK and just south of Greenland,
across Labrador, distance 11,422 km = 7,097 st mi --- 175 watts per
km, or 281 watts per mile. Assuming 1521 really be running full
2,000,000 watts, which I could easily believe, but WRTH 2019 says not
all of them may be. In that case it would be even greater DX!

For comparison, with 10,000 watts ND, KOKC 1520, Moore OK to Enid, 122
km or 76 miles: 82 watts per km, or 132 watts per mile.

Anyhow, now`s the time for those in deep North America, perhaps even
beyond me, to check for that carrier on 1521.0 at midday (but beware
of something else not exactly 1 kHz above 1520 stations).

Quick chex for 1521 Dec 1 at 1849 & 1911 UT on homerig R75 with
longwire: not heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2010 monitoring: missed checking WA0RCR,
1860-AM, nominal 0415 UT Sunday December 1; but ham news at 0503 so
presumably WOR aired earlier; did anyone hear it? Next:

** U S A. 9330.00, Nov 30 at 2206, WBCQ-6 is still on with WLC IS loop
during maintenance hour, but off at 2212 recheck. Otherwise, random
chex seem to match published language/azimuth schedule. AW said WLC
sked would be on the WBCQ website, but I can`t find it there. Even the
9330 program schedule shows outdated 2030-0300 span only (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re: "UNIDENTIFIED. 1010, Nov 30 at 0659 UT just before full
ID for KBBW Waco TX, q.v., I hear another ID sounding like KGJO -- but
no such listing nor anything fuzzily similar to be found in NRC AM
Log, or FCC AM Query. Nor is there any such call on FM in case that
were a reference. Ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)"

Glenn, I would bet the ID you heard was for KDJW-1360, which often
simulcasts KTNZ-1010. Both stations seem to stay on day rig overnight
from time to time. Sample attached from last month's Border Inn
recordings. HTH, 73 (Tim Hall, CA, ibid.)

Tnx, Tim. Yes, I bet that`s it. Amarillos, KTNZ nothing unusual here
(Glenn Hauser, ibid.)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search December 1 at
0648-0656 UT: 621, 684, 693, 711, 747(2), 774(2), 837(2), 846[probably
TP Kiritimati], 936(2), 999, 1044, 1053, 1089, 1215, 1413, 1539. Some
of these were picked up on a second scan, not the first one as of
course fading and QRM are always variable. (2) means at least two
carriers beating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13634 & 13766 approx., Nov 30 at 1526, RHC 13700 is putting
out these not very strong spurblobs on FM/AM/F#, none audible beyond.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 9905.030, Nov 30 at 1609, S4-S5 Chinese
talk so I bet it`s SAIPAN, well-known for frequency laxness. Yes,
exactly, this hour only on weekends, Radio Free Asia (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. I hardly need antennaweb to show me which TV stations I
can pick up, but I decided to find out what they would say:

Ha ha, that is the only ``local`` signal (altho it claims to be on
channel 41 in faraway Ardmore); but Enid easily watches TV channels
from OKC with outside/rooftop antennas, or even carefully positioned
rabbit ears, distance roughly 65 miles. What do they know? If aim of
this site be to sell antennas, they are failing miserably. Seems to be
part of titantv listings (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, Nov 30, time not noted, one of the constantly
repeating promos for KOSU financial support mentions that, ahem, all
things considered, it costs $ 285 per hour for KOSU to operate. One
seldom hears such a figure from public -- or any -- radio stations, so
I wonder how it compare to others; and exactly how they computed it.
Presumably includes opcosts for relays KOSN, KOSR, translators (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 11655.116, Nov 30 at 1603, VP talk way off-frequency. Of
course, scheduled here at 1600-1630 only is IBRA Radio/Radio Ibrahim,
in Afar via dha where something is always wrong with their frequencies
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2010 monitoring: almost confirmed Saturday
November 30 at 2050 the 2030v on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO. I do
have a JBA signal with talk rather like my ``monotone``, but blocked
by heavy local line noise which still infests this part of the
spectrum. Next:

** U S A. 1010, Nov 30 at 0700 UT, ID for KBBW Waco and several FMs,
``Legendary 10-10 AM everywhere in central Texas``. KBBW night pattern
has two tight lobes at 160 and 290 degrees, hardly anything thisaway.
Day pattern not much better for us, very minor lobe at 350, broad
major lobe at 170. FCC info does not mention any translators or FM
affiliates. But website is headed:

``KBBW 1010 AM 105.7 FM 101.3 FM 100.3 FM - Life Changing .. kbbw.com
105.7 FM in Waco, 101.3 FM in Killeen-Temple,
100.3 FM in Georgetown-Round Rock-Cedar Park
and everywhere on the legendary 1010 AM.
Keep Boldly Believing the Word``
Yes, it`s 100% gospel huxtering. Website http://kbbw.com/ is nothing
but a program sked. See also unID 1010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 5930, Nov 30 at 1520, Asian language at S6-S9. Aoki
shows it`s VR via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES, in Malayalam; thus
violating Separation of Church and State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1010, Nov 30 at 0659 UT just before full ID for KBBW
Waco TX, q.v., I hear another ID sounding like KGJO -- but no such
listing nor anything fuzzily similar to be found in NRC AM Log, or FCC
AM Query. Nor is there any such call on FM in case that were a
reference. Ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1521, Nov 30 circa 1840 UT = local mean noon, ~1 kHz het

UNIDENTIFIED. 6030, Nov 30 at 1521, JBA carrier -- could it be CFVP

6030 1430-1530 IND AIR VOICE OF KASHMIR Kas Delhi (King 1-7
6030 0900-1805 CHN CNR 1 (DRM) 3FF Chi Beijing 572 1-7

** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 15640, in last report that`s Radio Azadi, not
typo Axadi (gh)

** CUBA. 9620-9660, Nov 29 at 2222, RHC Spanish 9640 with buzz noise
extending out to this range; worst peaks below plus/minus 13 kHz.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** INDIA. 9445, Nov 29 at 2220, English interview with Indian accents,
AIR as scheduled, partially readable at S5-S9; also DRM noise
7545-7550-7555 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9095, Nov 29 at 2217 weak talk presumed Korean from
Echo of Hope on this week`s jumparound frequency. Fortunately, since
right above it 9095 past 9100 is some kind of noise, perhaps jamming
if not DRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 33, Nov 29 at 2203 UT, exploring the OKC DTV
subchannels, I find that KOCB now runs Dabl on 34-4! Despite the fact
that RF 27 KFOR has already been carrying DABL on 4-4 from its outset
in September. Yes, now on two non-co-owned stations in the same city,
but one with PSIP all-CAPS, the other not. At this time both with
Martha Stewart show --- can never get enough of her! How can this
happen? Net`s own website
https://www.dabl.com/locations
still shows KFOR only! (And the search by zip code funxion goes
nowhere for 73101 or 73701; have to keep loading more till we get to
Oklahoma.) A quick look thru the list does not find another city with
two affiliates other than primary and translator. Rabbitears.info does
show Dabl correctly on both in OKC. IMHO, Dabling on just one is a
waste of spectrum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Nov 29 at 2353, R. Chaski carrier quite audible vs
Cuban wall-of-noise jamming against nothing else; and for the fourth
night in a row its autotimer cutoff has slipped another 2 seconds
earlier to: 2355:21* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 1521, Nov 29 at 2210, already hearing a +1 kHz het
upon 1520 KOKC; in fact two hets of different pitches, the other one
perhaps KRHW in MO as previously discussed. From 2229 I am listening
intently, isolating the 1521.0 carrier by tuning to 1520.8-USB. It
goes off sometime between 2231 and 2232, but can`t tell exactly when
as KOKC is splashing some music that minute; must be an ad during talk
format. Bruce Conti, NH, in NRC IDXD had timed the cutoff exactly
twice, which is what I am trying to match:

``1521 SAUDI ARABIA SBC R.Riyadh, Duba OCT 12 2215 - Good; talk and
music parallel 9555 and 9870 kHz. 1521 off at 2231:40 UTC after solemn
talk with soft orchestra music. OCT 19 2230 - Good; off at 2231:40.
[Conti-NH]`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11720, November 29 at 2150, I finally remember to tune in
VOA`s `Music Time in Africa` before it`s over, its only chance via
Grimesland NC during B-seasons Fridays at 2100-2200 now here instead
of 15580, and a VG signal almost directly off the back. The last
dekaminute at least: an archive segment of polyphony from the Pygmies
of Central African Republic. Hyper Heather Maxwell refers us to the
website for thousands of archived songs: voanews.commtia-archive ---
she says, yes, ``backslash`` instead of forwardslash, altho it makes
no difference and calling it ``slant`` as I do is far less menacing
and more euphonious. In fact that url autoconverts to:
https://www.voanews.com/mtia-archive
with a forwardslash. Her closing announcement still fails to mention
this very time among the several for her program. Yankee-Doodle-Dandy
sign-off is cut off before it can finish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2010 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, Friday November 29 at 2300 UT on WRMI 9955: exactly like the
previous weeks since standard time replaced 2200 UT, initially JBA
beneath heavy wall-of-noise Cuban jamming even tho there is no exile
programming now, let alone anything in Spanish. BUT noise steadily
abates as WRMI strength seems to simulgrow audiblizing me by the
middle of the intro, clear enough by 2303, and totally clear of
jamming in only a few more minutes. By 2326 it`s good S9+10, and I
notice concluding several seconds before 2329 implying that playout
started before 2300:00 when I could not hear whether anything was
upcut.

Also confirmed UT Sat Nov 30 at 0147, the 0130 on three WRMI
frequencies, 5850 VG >> 5010 fair >> 7780 VP. At this time I daresay
that I have better coverage than AW does on WBCQ: see separate report;
as I tuned over here to check me during his show. Note: it was not my
idea for us to be on simultaneously. Next:

1300 UT Saturday WRMI 15770 to NE

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330, 7490+, 5130-, Nov 30 at 0030, WBCQ is VP on all three,
and no signals on 6160+ or 3265-, so I don`t even try to hear `AAAWWW`
on SW, rather webcast. At 0100 transition to Studio 9 in DeLand of
FLA, there is again several seconds of noise/feedback? before WTO
theme start. First half hour is almost continuous monolog; first about
sharing one good mic from the 1930s instead of the no-good wireless
mics last time; then about chemtrails/contrails --- unlike Angela, it
seems Allan is not convinced by the conspiracy theories about them.

(Altho I do not allege serious health effects or government
malfeasance, I am concerned about all the jet exhaust over Enid from
Vance leading to a buildup of greasy dust even inside; and TG if two
of them had to crash recently, they were near the base runway instead
of within the city of Enid! -- gh)

Then AW rants about bikers refusing to muffle their noise, as some
kind of macho nonsense --- something else I can agree with him upon!
Not until about 0130 does he morph into insulting 535 members of
Congress and ``moonbats`` when I tune away; as many listeners could
then productively hear relatively apolitical WOR on WRMI, WRMI or
WRMI, q.v.

Checking WBCQ SW again at 0140, I find that 7490 has improved to P-F;
9330 is *not* carrying AAAWWW as expected but WLC gospel huxtering in
English; 5130 is now arriving even better than 7490 so I monitor there
for a while; not until 0141 does he timestamp this show as live, 29
November, YOOL 2019. He does not know if he`s on any frequency besides
7490 (what became of the othershow for weeks this hour on 5130?)

He says a bit about the S-S: now full 23 hpd sked (well, not this
morning, when off for a few hours), with break at 22-23 UT for
maintenance at discretion of operators. Will stick to 9330 only this
winter, go up to some higher frequencies with spring. Lauds his big
crew in Monticello by name, but still looking for more operators and
engineers knowledgeable about high-power/voltage, and is now hiring,
starting with job interviews, why in the world would they want to
live at the end of the world in winter? Says the output tube costs
$ 210,000 and takes 15 minutes for the filament to warm up.

No time is available on the S-S, WLC exclusive, but plenty time on the
other ``classic`` transmitters. 6160 reconditioned, would like to rent
it to some network for 4-8 hpd at a much reduced bulk rate. S-S at 500
kW output consumes like a million watts for a huge power bill more
than a classic would in 10 years (? not sure of that as 5130 is
fading). 0153 he`s reading some Free Radio Weekly pirate logs, just
received from cosmikdebris? At 0156 I switch back to webcast: talking
about tango music this Sunday on program #776 --- was that e-mail from
from `Marion`s Attic`? At 0200 sharp, canned AW ID cuts off live AW
still talking, making way for Hal Turner. Don`t know what ensued
exactly on the SW frequencies.

Here`s John Carver`s quite similar report:

Tonight's show started just a bit late. Could only find a signal on
5130 and wasn't sure if I was hearing a new show or not as the date
wasn't announced till nearly half way through the program. Program
opened with lots of moaning about microphones and how they were down
to just one mic in the Florida studio. Then Allan recounted a tale of
two wireless mics he bought from Ebay for forty some dollars apiece
and stated that they worked like forty dollar mics and had been
trashed. Then some talk from Angela about a conversation she had with
her father yesterday about chemtrails. Prompting Allan to read an
article from Wikipedia on the subject. Allan says they're harmless,
Angela said they're harmful. Then they were talking about motorcycles
without mufflers which started Allan talking about trying to run an
antique automobile without a muffler and how upset people would be if
they weren't muffled.

After a couple other topics, Allan announced that WLC had taken over
the superstation and their programming was now running twenty-three
hours a day. He stated that for most of the winter they would remain
on 9330 and try the other frequencies when it was closer to spring. He
again issued a plea for anyone with engineering experience that wanted
a job to contact him as they could use them for the superstation. He
also announced that they were broadcasting the program on 7490 and
that he didn't believe they were on any other frequency. I had no
signal on 7490, 6160 or 3265 and the only signal I could find was
5130. 9330 has WLC.

In station news he said there was lots of free time available on 7490.
Said they had lots of requests to lease time on 9330 but he would
lease no time on that frequency. He talked briefly about the work done
on the 6160 transmitter earlier this year and said he wanted a network
to take over that transmitter. Said that there was still lower prices
on 5130 and didn't mention 3265 at all. He also stated that the
superstation used as much power in a day as a normal home would use in
ten years or longer.

Started reading last week's Free Radio Weekly at 0154 and then went
into regular emails. Program was cut off in mid-sentence at 0200 and
5130 immediately went into a rerun of an earlier AAWWW. John,

** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 15640, Nov 29 at 1427, good signal sounds like
Farsi, cut off at 1430*. Aoki shows it`s Dari from Radio Axadi via
VATICAN at 1400-1430. Same service a.k.a. Radio Free Afghanistan at
0630-1400 alternating Dari and Pashto is via Kuwait, unlikely to serve
us so well (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALGERIA. 576, Nov 29 at 0445, JBA carrier with 1 kHz tone, also
detected as separate carriers on 575 and 577, presumed Béchar testing.
Have any Europeans triangulated this yet to be sure? Not specifically,
but just posted to bdxc-news iogroup at 1750 Nov 29:

``New Algerian MW Station on 576 kHz --- Hi, The tone tester heard
these latest days on 576 has become a new broadcasting service from
RTA (Algeria). Broadcasting started today 29th in the afternoon from
Kenadsa (Béchar) according to MW List details. The power listed is 400
kW. They were airing Radio Bechar program (not // with Chaîne 1), but
probably they will connect to RTA-Ch1, as other stations do with R.
Coran, R. Culture and so on.

According to some listeners in Murcia (Spanish southeastern coast), is
causing interferences to RNE-R5 Murcia on 567, from this evening.
Perhaps it will affect this station during the night and maybe also
576 kHz RNE-R5 Canaries (CNR). The station reaches now, here in
Northern Spain a 54444/5 SINPO. 73! -- Jorge Garzón. EB7EFA -

** CANADA. 401 kHz, Nov 29 at 0758 UT, dash and YHD, 500-watt NDB in
Peawanuck, Ontario. See also CAYMAN.

396 kHz, Nov 29 at 0759 UT, dash and YPH, 500 watt NDB at Inukjuak,
Quebec; a new one for me, so look up that place: it`s on the east
shore of Hudson Bay, 2845 km = 1768 statute miles from me. ``Inukjuak
is a northern village located on Hudson Bay at the mouth of the
Innuksuak River in Nunavik, in the Nord-du-Québec region of northern
Quebec, Canada. Its population is 1,757 as of the 2016 Canadian

** CAYMAN ISLANDS [and non]. 415 kHz, Nov 29 at 0758 UT, ND beacon CBC
from Cayman Brac, best way to hear this country rather than random
hams. 600 watts and I was tuned to 414-USB. Right next door to 413
dash and YHD, 250 watts in Dryden, Ontario, which are 3537 km apart
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 5040, Nov 29 at 0035, no signal from RHC but a JBA
carrier, presumably the only other known 5040, All India Radio,
Jeypore from 0025. Even weaker than the JBA carrier on 5060 from
presumed Xinjiang. 5040 RHC still off at 0521. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Nov 29 at 0743, S9+10 open carrier with hum,
surely TGAV Radio Verdad has failed to turn off its transmitter after
0610v closing, wasting watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Nov 28 at 2355:23* UT, carrier cut by Radio Chaski
under wall-of-noise Cuban jamming despite no OCB. Previous two nights
this happened 2 or 2.5 seconds later each, so a trend is developing of
slightly earlier cutoffs per 24 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2010, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9335, Nov 29 at 1513, clip of Drumpf pardoning turkey,
back to Myanmarianese once this vital news has been imparted, i.e. VOA
via Tinang at 1430-1630; no QRM from 9330 WBCQ Superstation which is
off again; in fact VOA is splattering down to 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

1517 Chinese from FEBC Iba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 684, Nov 29 at 0447, among all the JBA 9-kHz TA carriers,
some Castilian-sounding audio here from RNE Sevilla; and at 0448 also
on weaker 774 RNE synchros music, then talk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 6125, Nov 29 circa 0454 tuneby, no TRT after English but
lite Cuban pulse jamming now audible almost an hour after OCB
finished, so must have QRMed VOT. But tuning back across at 0456, VOT
is back on! with IS, 0458:15 & 0459:15 interspersed IDs as ``Suara
Radio Turki``. 0500 timesignal 3 seconds late! and opening Malay
service mentioning ``gelombang`` = wavelength.

Trouble is, the 0500 Malay service is supposed to be on 17530! which
might propagate over a day path unlike 6125 to W North America. How
lucky we are to hear this, if not the Malays. Recheck at 0512, 0525
still on 6125; frequent IDs as above, and at 0514 during the mandatory
multi-lingual ID reel. Something`s always wrong at Emirler (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Ulysses, Kansas. Yes; 25 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, Nov 29 at 1512, WBCQ-6 is off again, despite
nominal 23 hpd sked except 22-23 UT. Earlier I had tuned across poor
signal southward in Spanish but unlogged, circa 1330? Anyhow it`s back
on at 1828 poor during WLC German (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, Nov 29 at 0753, S9+10/20 of dead air except for some
hum and squeal from WWCR-1, much more pleasant listening than Brother
HyStairical. Does he get a refund? Is it Stair`s fault or theirs?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Nov 28 at 2230 UT as I am chasing the Sa`udi het from
1521 vs KOKC, other skywave QRM with partial ID mentioning two FM
frequencies, 92.3 and another in the 100s. Nonesuch listed at 1520 in
the NRC AM Log, but in the WTFDA FM Database, among all the USA 92.3
listings, searching on 1520 there is one hit which is quite
reasonable:

``W222BG, WHOW-1520, 92.3, CLINTON IL, 0.25, 62.0, 40-05-43 88-57-51,
NEWS/TALK/FARM NEWS RADIO 1520 //W293DJ 106.5``

Back to the NRC AM Log which does match WHOW with 106.5 but not 92.3,
and there is no Group cross-ref. WHOW is a D3 direxional daytimer of
5000 watts, rather only 1000 during Critical Hours: ``The Big 1520 AM
and 106.5 FM``.

But FCC AM Query shows it non-direxional both daytime and CH; and Nov
sunset is 2245 UT (Dec: 2230 UT). Thus the synergy of these three
major references (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3344.92, Nov 29 at 0750, no signal today unlike
ante-yesterday. Ron Howard replied: ``Hi Glenn, Your 3344.92 was a
utility, which just happened to be on the former Ternate and PNG
(NBC Northern, the Voice of Oro) frequency. On Nov 26, utility still
being heard with a good level carrier 1506+. Ron, California``. BTW,
Ternate is on the west coast of Sulawesi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** ALGERIA. 576, Nov 28 at 0052 UT, JBA carrier among many in TA
search, but this is of special interest. 1 kHz tone test has been
widely reported last few nights in eastern half of North America as
very strong unID. Now I also detect a ``carrier`` on 575, i.e. the
lower half of a 1 kHz tone, but too much slop from WIBW on 577. My
previous comments about this:

Maybe Bechar, Algeria, 400/200 kW. Altho listed in WRTH, it hasn`t
been reported much (any?) despite the common 531 and 549 Algies, so
maybe this one is just being reactivated? Bechar is also where they
are supposedly building a new SW site.

mwlist says: ``576 ALG Chaîne 1 24h Kenadsa (Béchar) * 400 reported
irregularly active in Mar 2016 // 153 198 891 909 1071``

Europeans, if not North Americans, could easily get a DF bearing on
this, even triangulate it by simply using handheld portables --- too
easy? 73, (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 326 kHz, Nov 28 at 0718 UT, dash and YQK ID from ND beacon,
which is 200 watts from Kenora, Ontario.

335 kHz, Nov 28 at 0721 UT, dash and YLD ID from ND beacon, which is
1000 watts from Chapleau, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIING
DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Nov 27 at 0814 UT, marine weather by YL in
French, VP. Per EiBi at 0810-0830 it`s VCS Halifax but in English via
sm site = Sambro NS.

2598-USB, Nov 27 at 0816 UT, YL too weak to detect language. EiBi says
at 0807-0833 it`s VOJ, Port aux Basques NL, English & French via sv
site = Stephenville NL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6030, follow-up Nov 27 from Harold Sellers about CFVP after
I asked him to check whether it`s off the air:

``[WOR] CFVP-6030 Calgary Canada off the air --- Recently listeners
had reported that CFVP seemed to be off the air. Normally I can hear
CFVP during daylight hours from my home in British Columbia, but I
wasn’t hearing it either. The mediumwave station, CKMX 1060, “Funny
1060”, has been audible here, so the problem was only with the
shortwave outlet.

Today I finally made contact with an engineer at BellMedia, who owns
the stations. This is what he said:

"I have just been informed the site was target of copper theft that
disabled CFVP. Transmitter underwent some repairs, and some work is in
progress on the site to restore the missing grounding. It should be
back in service within the next few days.”

Let’s keep listening for its return. Harold Sellers, Vernon, BC``

Tony VK2IC Magon replies, ``The best idea to replace the ground mat is
with barbed wire`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Nov 28 at 0714, RHC English is still on here, only //
6145 which normally lasts until 0800. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Nov 27 at 2355, carrier clearly under Cuban wall of
noise jamming not against OCB, until cuts off at 2355:25.5* which is 2
seconds earlier than yesterday. Further obs will determine whether a
steady slippage or random variation in Radio Chaski timer`s
auto-termination. Nothing else is known to be on 5980 at this time
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Thu Nov 28 at 1557, REE earworm IS is VG, but VP on
// 11685; the eastern-hemisphere frequencies start at 1600 weekdays;
no signals yet on 9690 & 11940 western-hemisphere which don`t start
until 1900 weekdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 9940, Nov 28 at 1301, HSK9, temporary(?) English segment,
I think but too poor to copy at S3-S5. I wanted to compare signal to
before 1300 as signal thisaway should have improved (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2887-USB, Nov 27 at 0812, New York ATC poor assigning flite
level, selcal tones. Per EiBi this is a Caribbean area frequency, from
site at Barnegat, New Jersey (which is way down the coast between Toms
River and Tuckerton) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2009 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday November
27 from 2200:20 on WBCQ 7490.06, S9-S7, but 9330 is off.

Also confirmed UT Thursday Nov 28 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, better than
usual at S9+20 but fading down somewhat by 0120. Preceded by Zorba
tune at 0059, Biermann ID at 0059.5 and a fragment of some other
intrusive audio as WOR playback starts.

WOR 2010 should be ready by early UT Nov 29, and start SWairing late
UT Fri Nov 29 at 2300 on WRMI 9955; UT Sat Nov 30 at 0130 on WRMI
5010, 5850 and 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, Nov 27 at 1853, World`s Last Chance via WBCQ-6
concluding German hour, only fair on caradio beamed away; piano IS
different than the usual, 1856 Arabic and off for swivel; *1859 back
on in Arabic seems slightly stronger, 1900 ``Huna WBCQ`` and
worldslastchance.com pronounced in English. Still in Arabic at next
check 2153, now S9+20/S6 the 500 kW much *weaker* now than 9350 WWCR
100 kW at S9+50. By 2157.5, 9330 reaches S9+25 in Arabic; 2200 WLC
theme music but cuts off the air by 2201* leaving splash from WWCR.
Rather than testing with WORLD OF RADIO as happened without notice
last week. 2356 recheck it`s back on in Brazilian, but VP S3-S6 here
to the WSW during this almost-south beaming. At 0120 Nov 28 back to
English, S9-S4 despite optimum azimuth of 245, with MUF declining.

It`s not TG target day yet, but the above matches already this info
Nov 26 from Alan Holder, Isle of Wight, UK:

``Hi Glenn, Re your post on Hard Core DX 25-11-19 about WBCQ and
World’s Last Chance. The “menacing” interval signal of World’s Last
Chance radio, as you call it, seemed familiar to me. Finally, I
remembered that it is based on the Christmas song called “Carol of the
Bells”. You can find many recordings of this on the Web. Apparently it
is of Ukrainian origin. I have also heard the WLC version of this
music during some episodes of a U.K. TV programme series called
“Impossible Engineering”. So it is not music which has been written
especially for WLC radio.

I note that WLC have amended the sked on their Web site. Presumably
this is the final version which will be used from November 28:

All on 9330 kHz:

0000-0100 Portuguese Brazil 175 deg.
0100-0300 English East USA 245 deg.
0300-0600 English Central USA 270 deg.
0600-0900 English West USA 280 deg.
0900-1000 Portuguese Europe 76 deg.
1000-1100 Spanish Europe 76 deg.

1400-1600 English W. Canada 300 deg.
1600-1800 English U.K. 57 deg.
1800-1900 German Germany 54 deg.
1900-2200 Arabic Morocco 70 deg.
2200-2300 OFF AIR (Maintenance?)
2300-2400 Portuguese Brazil 175 deg.

Regards, Alan Holder``

9330, Nov 28 at 1507, S9/+10 of gospel huxter in English, so WLC must
be officially underway. Allan Weiner indicated to Artie Bigley that
the only non-WLC programming on 9330 would be `Worldwide`, UT Saturday
at 0100-0200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9955, Wed Nov 27 at 2202, wall-of-noise Cuban
jamming vs WRMI with Radio For Peace International in French; still
same at 2237. Obviously Cuba is opposed to international peace (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Thu Nov 28 at 0710, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR
transmitter which is not supposed to be on at this hour; same level as
5935 with DGS modulation. Haven`t noted such for a while; holiday
special? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1203, Nov 27 at 2217 UT, IBOC noise bothering WRTO Chicago
1200 (not WOAI), and another peak about 1177. This time the 1190
source is WOWO: sports talk by W&M ``after 5 o`clock``, mention Fort
Wayne; dominant 1190 signal but plenty of QRM. WOWO is believed to be
the only 1190 running IBOC. Don`t usually hear that or 1190 itself and
wonder if their pattern be out of whack: U2 50/9.8 kW, i.e. ND day
which is OK since Nov sunset is 2230 UT (Dec: 2215 UT). NRC AM Log
shows format as NWS/TLK, not SPT per se (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1500, Nov 27 at 2215 UT, plenty skywave already, area code
317 mentioned, ``deliverance`` and gospel huxtering vs sports talk
presumably KSTP. 317 is Indianapolis, and the 1500 there is a fit, REL
format on the other WRN group, WBRI, a 5 kW direxional daytimer. Best
time to hear it as Nov official sunset is not until 2230* (Dec: 2215*)
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Nov 28 at

UNIDENTIFIED. 1520+, Nov 27 at 2226 UT, I`m straining to hear a
tell-tale het from 1521 upon 1520 KOKC, since Doha, Sa`udi Arabia 2000
kW is about to sign off at 2231* as noted by Bruce Conti, NH. It used
to be obvious when it ran all-night. I do detect a JBA carrier, but
sounds less than 1 kHz, so maybe KRHW Sikeston MO which has varied
before; and still there at 2233 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3344.924, Nov 27 at 0807, carrier fading S7-S5. Such a
frequency immediately brings to mind the mostly inactive RRI Ternate,
Indonesia, altho a bit early for it to propagate? Maybe not: sunset
0920 UT. A few hours earlier Wolfgang Bueschel independently measured
exactly the same frequency! and had the same idea about Ternate ---
but certainly not at noontime there, and apparently he was using USA
remotes like adjoining logs in that session: ``3344.924 ??? Strange
signal string, much vague - ? could it be carrier of RRI Ternate-INS ?
- at 0320 UT Nov 27 wb``. Last reported frequency for it was 3344.86
as in DXLD 19-22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6016-USB, Nov 28 at 0707, 2-way INTRUDERS, not Spanish
but some tonal language (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6810, Nov 27 at 0758, AM dead air at S9-S7; I also ran
across this sometime earlier but unlogged (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7969.0-CW, Nov 27 at 0751, CW seems handkeyed, repeating
after long pauses but may not be an identical marker. I do manage to
copy DE MRNQ as ID, altho I am not positive about the last letter.
MRNQ gets no significant google hits, nor at UDXF iog, but frequency
at UDXF leads to old logs mentioning a Russian military outstation
Morse net paired with 6988; but also an Algerian petroleum net. MRNQ
could also be an antique(?) British ship callsign, altho this is not a
marine band. More likely a tactical call (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
