DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated Dec 7:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** 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
final propaganda headlines, S9+20 but undermodulated here; // 15140 is
weaker S9+10 but fully modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** 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:
2030vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM
0400vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0415]
2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE

0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** 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)

This report dispatched at 1837 UT December 7

Hauser

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)

Hauser
** CANADA. 223 kHz, Dec 6 at 0728, dash and YYW, 1000 watt ND beacon
from Armstrong, Ontario. First one readable as I tune upward (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 6100, Dec 6 at 2307, VP music same as VG signal on CUBA
13650. I`m checking this just as some guy on WRMI is quoting Steve
McGreevy`s unID music on 6100; I researched the answer too late to say
on the WOR 2011 show: it`s CRI`s Portuguese service which for months
has been replaced by continuous Chinese music. 6100 is scheduled
2300-0100 direct from Beijing site, aimed NW across Asia, Europe,
Atlantic to Brasil. 13650 via Cuba is for only one hour; and the
second hour has another relay, Kashgar, East Turkistan (land of Uyghur
brainwashing by the ChiCom) on 9710, which here at 0001 Dec 7 check is
a JBA carrier, while the music on 6100 is still poorly audible. The
understation Steve also had on 6100 must have been CRI QRMing itself,
simulscheduled in Sinhala via Kunming at 2330-0030 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13767 & 13633 approx., Dec 6 at 1503, AM/FM/F# spurblobs from
RHC 13700-AM transmitter with music at S9; second order much weaker VP
circa 13567 & 13833, none further. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7140 & 7180, Dec 6 at 1427, JBA steady carriers vs QRhaM,
presumably the two VOBMEs by longpath (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Dec 6 at 0722, TGAV once again on air way past
usual 0610v*, but no modulation. Sometimes there may be, for the
holidays? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH. 2850, Dec 6 at 1408, choral music S7-9, KCBS
P`yongyang the common DPRK MW station here, only occupant of the
105-meter band, better than usual well after sunrise here.

3320, Dec 6 at 1413, Hamhung relay of KCBS P`yongyang also registers
S7-9, but just barely modulated. Still outshines 3325 Indonesia JBA
carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 1566, Dec 6 at 1343 I am concentrating on the JJBBA
carrier from FEBC Cheju Island, fading somewhat, but seems to begone
at about 1344.5, expected time for their beam change from Japan to
China. In another month this will be easier right at our own sunrise
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. Surveying Echo of Hope Korean talk
jumparounds and status of KN noise jamming, Dec 6 at 1414-1425: 3475
no jam; 3905 jam only; 3930 with jam; 3985 with jam; 4557 jam only;
4885 no jam; 5995 over jam; 6350 with jam (not 6348); 6520 jam; 6600
with jam. Quite a while later had JBA carrier on 9100.

6045, Dec 6 at 1422, open carrier with jamming too. This is a Voice of
Freedom frequency, per EiBi in a break 1406-1452 but evidently leaving
carrier on for the jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** 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 Fonógrago``, 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)

** MEXICO. 730, Dec 6 at 1341, VG signal with Mexican music, much
stronger than 720 or 700; 12 minutes after sunrise here as I start,
none of the XEs below 700 are audible. ``La Mexicana --- le gana``
partial slogan, plugging a program Sat & Sun at 22 horas; 1350 Suprema
Corte PSA (can you imagine the SCOTUS doing that, or needing to?),
``La Mexicana`` ID again. It`s XEHB, 50 kW at Hidalgo del Parral,
Chihuahua (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 770, Dec 6 at 1355, Gobierno de México PSA, loops SSW, so
XEACH Monterrey NL, almost a semihour after sunrise here when the
other still skywaving XEs are further west; yes, 1358 Grupo Fórmula
program promo; 1400 ID? mentions ``canal`` algo. Did not hear it a few
minutes earlier and KKOB Albuquerque should have popped on ND day
pattern at 1400 UT (January: 1415 UT)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 940, Dec 6 at 0707, multiple ID/promos for ``La Ke Buena --
en cadena``. Yes, that`s the way they spell it, altho XEQ should be
the ideal station to spell it correctly with a QU. Dominant signal
now, which is rarely the case any more for the major CDMX stations;
50/50 kW listed, and not noticeably off-frequency now. So slogan
implies it`s networked elsewhere? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 341 kHz, Dec 6 at 0732 UT, JBA ID with long pauses from
my local NDB, EI, at Woodring Airport. I often check for this day and
night and hear nothing at all, so appears to be sporadic and/or very
reduced power below nominal 25 watts. DXinfocentre.com lists 24 other
341s in the N American region, including the now decommissioned YYU in
Kapuskasing; and the only other one I have heard, OIN in Oberlin KS
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Dec 6 at 2353, standing by again for the Chaski cutoff
of its VP carrier audible under WON jamming, which occurs at 2355:07*,
i.e. 2.5 seconds earlier than 24 hours ago, 2355:09.5; of course I`m
just estimating the split seconds on my digital watch (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960, Dec 6 at 2301:30, VOT carrier and shortly modulation
cuts on late as English is already opening. Something`s always wrong
at Emirler, but today the modulation is good on S9+10 signal; 2350
recheck still on with interval signal loop, 2357 starts inserting
German IDs twice a minute, ``Die Stimme der Türkei``, and after
slightly late timesignal, 0000 UT Dec 7 opens German hour with
schedule including 19mb, i.e. 15270 at 1230 and there is only one
other German airing scheduled, 1830 on 5945, NOT NOW! If this phantom
German broadcast were to recur 24 hours later it would collide with
The Mighty Farty KBC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2011 monitoring: confirmed first SWBC at 2300
UT Friday December 6 on WRMI 9955: as usual, initially buried by heavy
wall-of-noise Cuban jamming even tho there is no exile programming
now, nor anything in Spanish. I can`t time the opening, but must have
started playout 10-15 seconds early judging by when I first utter
``standard disclaimer`` after the opening; was it upcut or everything
starting a bit early? This time the jamming persists longer, gradually
diminishing, WOR more or less readable by 2309, and clear by 2319.

Also confirmed UT Saturday December 7 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5010 S9-S7 and
not upcut; 7780 S9 but noisy; 5850 VG S9+20, the one aimed thisaway.
Next:

1300 UT Saturday WRMI 15770 to NE
2030vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490v, Dec 7 at 0100, WBCQ with a new `AAAWWW` -- I`m
listening mostly on webcast except when checking out the SW usage.
Only first few minutes politix, sidetracked by e-mail from SAQ, Sweden
about the Alexandersen Alternator Xmas eve broadcast on 17.2 kHz. He
talks a lot about SAQ and VLF in general both now and later in the
hour. Says he has heard it before in Monticello with a very longwire
antenna, but had to turn off all his own transmitters. SAQ is a museum
piece, last of its kind in the world. Except for the brand-new S-S,
WBCQ is also full of 60-70-year old museum piece transmitters and
other equipment.

0114 annoying Freddie calls in wanting to report reception. AW knows
they are on 7490 which he can hear/see in Fla, but not sure about
5130. Not the others: 3265 & 6160 off the air; and 9330 continues with
WLC. A bit of news about the SuperStation: due to high winds, an
insulator broke on the antenna, but they were able to isolate it and
stay on air; antenna crew came yesterday and fixed it.

At 0131, after confirming WOR on WRMI X 3, I find WBCQ 5130 is S9 but
noisy, and slightly better than 7490, also S9 and noisy. 0153 starts
to read latest FRW logs (oops, I missed their deadline with my one
catch), sidetracked by discussion of his and Angela`s musical
preferences; 0159 squeezes in that the WBCQ merchandise store is now
open on the website to raise some money, but at least on the webcast,
cut off at 0200 sharp before he can even pray.

Here`s John Carver`s version of same hour:

``Tonight's program started on time on 5130. 5130 is S9 and 7490 is
S1. Opening talk about plugs and sockets, male and female. Mini rant
about the 50 types of sexual orientation that are in vogue now. Then
into talk about longwave and a special event station that will be
broadcasting in December. First phone call at 0111 from Freddie
complaining that he could receive no WBCQ signal this evening and
could only hear WLC on 9330.

In talking about that, Allan mentioned that the big antenna on the
superstation had already suffered some weather related damage from a
broken insulator. They were able to bypass it with the computer and
continue to use the antenna until the weather broke and a crew was
able to replace the insulator.

After Freddie was off the phone the talk went back to longwave. Phone
call at 0138 from Freddie again with comments about the SAQ station
that Allan was talking about. Reading of Free Radio Weekly at 0153
interrupted at 0155 by nonstop station IDs until 0200 when they went
into a AAWWW rerun. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 560, Dec 6 at 1334 UT, news about Beaumont, ``KLVI News time
7:34``, weather next, local ads. Can anyone think of another MW
station with a call of frequency in Roman numerals? (56 = myriaHz).
Not often heard here; night pattern is tight almost due west; hmmm,
across Houston, but non-direxional daytime after 1300 in December
(1315 in January) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 830, Dec 6 at 1343 UT, Spanish religion seems to peak
WSW/ENE, maybe a Mexican; but 1347 several AC 901 phone numbers and
Memphis mentioned, so it`s from the east, 3 kW daytimer, WUMY Memphis
TN, 1348 also slogan ``Buenas Nuevas`` (never `Noticias` in the
Christian sense, nor vice versa). WCCO still in but nullable. Not to
be confused with the other mid-American Mississippi Valley USSS on
830, KGLA in Norco LA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, Dec 6 at 1402 UT, ID including ``Éxtasis -- El Paso``,
7:02 TC, i.e. KXPL, 10 kW ND daytimer. No sign of KIJN Farwell TX,
about halfway between us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, first on the R75
with E-W longwire, Dec 6 at 1324-1328 UT: 747, 774 both much stronger
than 828; 972, 1143.

Today`s sunrise 1329 UT, still latening by a minute every other day to
attain 1344 UT by Epiphany; OTOH our earliest sunset is just about now
at 2316 UT.

Then at 1328-1333 on the DX-398 hand held, all of them DFing NW from E
Asia, not Au/NZ: 693, 737, 774, 828, 873, 972, 1323, 1422, 1566 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also KOREA SOUTH

UNIDENTIFIED. 2484.13, Dec 6 at 1409, weak steady carrier, probably a
local artifact, but I`m checking for VANUATU which is supposed to
revive SW before yearend including new 2485 registered by Adrian
Sainsbury, NZ as 10 kW, 1000-1900 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 5800, Dec 5 at 0115, RAE ID in Spanish; relay via
WRMI still here after Cuba reclaimed 6060. Unfortunately, I have a
blob from a local device right on 5800. I could tell 5800 went off the
air at 0200 sharp Dec 6. I notified the condiglista about this ASAP
last night so everybody in Argentina should be aware of it, perhaps
even RAE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2011, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 7850-CUSB, Dec 5 at 2054, the middle frequency of CHU is
still off the air for another week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO
2011, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Dec 6 at 0201, R. Progreso music is suptorted, S9+20
with CODAR QRM too. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Dec 5 at 0707, this RHC is still on in English, VG
S9+20/30, // only 6145. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRELAND [non] [Fixing typo in portion of last report]: . . .by 1930
recheck some longer talk program. 1959 sign-off with the other theme,
and now with CRI English ACI from *both* sides 7285 & 7295 [not 7290
as I wrote originally]. Before 1900 it`s on 7285 only, after 1900 on
7295 only. . . (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non?]. 9890, Dec 5 at 2154, NHK Japanese is S9-S5, fair with
long/short path echo. I`m checking now becaus Rich D`Angelo on a
DX-pedition in Pennsylvania reported this going off the air at 2200.
But it`s scheduled until 2300, and around 2230 I have been hearing an
unreasonably strong signal for a broadcast aimed in the opposite
direxion; so could it be there is a secret site or azimuth shift at
2200? No, no break in transmission, no abrupt change in strength after
2159 ID, 2200 NHK timesignal and onward. However the signal steadily
grows to S9+10, and by 2231, S9+20/30. It appears there currently be a
``pipeline`` Yamata to Enido around this hour, perhaps graylinish
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11540, Dec 5 at 1435, two stations mixing about
equally including chanting. The Kurdo-Turco radio war is getting to be
rather routine, ``Radio Recep Erdogan`` vs Denge Welat. BTW it appears
that Pridnestrovye site has been ordered not to QSL or reply to
listeners, apparently to prevent site info about clandestines from
getting out to the public (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2011, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 5126-USB, Dec 5 at 0014, pirate with rock classics,
0020 ``Tutti Frutti``; 0027 ``Are You Lonesome Tonight`` by Elvis;
0027 quick YL ID as Mix Radio International. Still on at 0113 recheck,
fair and steady signal. Tnx to tip from Robert Butterfield, Maryland,
to the WOR iogroup, who was hearing it as early as 2205 Dec 4. Many
more logs here as early as 1931:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2011, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Dec 4 at 2353, JBA carrier under Cuban jamming, from R.
Chaski, this time until autocutoff at 2355:11.5.

** U S A. 9330, Dec 5 at 1423, WBCQ-6 SuperStation is off again; must
be having further problems. Still absent at rechex: 1543, 1918, 2009;
finally on in Arabic at next check 2026, only S7-S9 beamed away toward
main target supposedly Morocco instead of Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 2011, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. [Fixing minor typo in portion of last report:] ...6060, Dec
3 at 2332, WRMI in accented English, presumably the Supreme Master
herself, weak and undermodulated but in the clear. After 2355 I am
standing by for RHC to come on and so it does at *2357:14 as in
separate log, blowing away WRMI: I can`t even tell if it`s still on. .
. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Dec 5 at 0711, S9/+10 of dead air from WEWN Spanish,
as frequently happens this time of night. Is no one paying attention
at Vandiver or Irondale? Of course not! Who would be listening to RCC
stuff at this ungodly hour? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Dec 5 at 0712, WWCR another station competing in the
dead-air sweepstakes, in this case not even supposed to be on air now
with modulation. S9+30, same as modulated 5935. Seems like UT Thursday
is a favorite DOW for this; why? Mis-programmed automation while they
snooze? 100 kW for nothing. Of course most of their modulated 100 kWs
are also for nothing but gospel huxters and far-right extremist nuts
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, Dec 6 at 0204, no signal yet from WRNO; but on at
0424, just as W&M prompt for contacts if we have tuned in by mistake;
something about haven in their names. S9+10 peaks but not a solid
signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12000-USB, Dec 5 at 1430, weak 2-way in Spanish about a
puta --- what else? Strangely, no trace of RHC harmonic even tho 6000
is still audibly on the air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, 15140, 15370, Dec 3 at 2108, all three RHC are in
Arabic. Own B-19 sked shows 11880 & 15140 are supposed to be in
French; 15370 in Portuguese at 2100-2130. Something`s always wrong at
RHC x 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 6060, Dec 3 at *2357:14 RHC carrier cuts on
S9+20/30 totally covering WRMI/SMTV [see USA], and a few seconds later
modulates with ``full`` frequency announcement, but failing to mention
6060! Summary translation: continues on 13740, 11760, 11850, 9535;
closing now on 15370, 9640, 5040; starting at *2400 [sic], 11670,
11700, 11950, 9640, 6000. Something`s always wrong at RHC: both
stopping and starting 9640 at same time? 11950 and 6000 may start now,
but with separate Mesa Redonda TV audio program.

6060 is still on in Spanish at 0455, S9+10/20 and at 0519 when it used
to have joined in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 6145, Dec 4 at 0519, RHC is off, instead something
in Romanian, i.e. RRI which is already scheduled this hour only. Has
not gone back to 6165 either. I think 6145 was on earlier in evening
English; so is Arnie axually taking a break to avoid colliding with
RRI? More likely accidental; anyway, by 0721, 6145 is back on, by when
it is the only RHC frequency remaining.

Back at 0519, a full survey for RHC English: 6100 best by far, S9+30
but undermodulated; 6000 slightly weaker S9+20/30 also undermod; no
6165 or 6145; and 6060, 5040 are still in Spanish. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Dec 4 at 2025, VOG only fair with folk music, hardly
soporific, drums and fluting and chanting, but will have to do for my
nap lullaby in the absence of Qur`an from Saudi Arabia on 11820. I
need to check whether that`s really on as far as UTwente (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRELAND [non]. 7290, Dec 4 via UTwente SDR, IRRS *1856:15 carrier,
and I keep listening on Wed, a non-WOR day. 1859:27 cut/on Aida theme
in progress and sign-on; 1900:05, FSN from London; 1903:05 FSN
Spotlight; 1905:05 news in brief from the United Nations; 1908:35 bit
of African music; 1911 bit of Qur`an with off-mike echo; 1911:25 rock
music but soon Arabic? lyrix; 1916:30 into country song in English; by
1930 recheck some longer talk program. 1959 sign-off with the other
theme, and now with CRI English ACI from *both* sides 7285 & 7290.
Before 1900 it`s on 7285 only, after 1900 on 7295 only. Aoki shows
7295 Urumqi, East Turkistan, land of Uighur brainwashing by the
ChiCom; 7285 is Xianyang site in Cha until 1857; Albania after 2000.
Now if we only knew the true site for 7290. My timings should be
accurate to a couple seconds; I thought there might be internet delay
via SDR but later tuning 3330-CUSB CHU, it`s only about one second
late. Also an unID timesignal on 5000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Dec 3 at 2350, no signal detectable from R. Chaski
under Cuban jamming against nothing, tho it has been during the past
week prior to slipping earlier 2355v*. Dec 4 at 2331, the signal is
back and cutoff time to be in next report (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 7325.032, Dec 4 at 0729, BBCWS in English way
off-frequency, S9/+10, 0730 headlines. Should not have been surprised
to find Pinheira is the site during this hour, also caught elsewhere
skewed; previous hour 06-07 is via Woofferton (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, Dec 4 at 0456, VP S1-S2 signal, JBM? Even at
that level there should be more audio than I can detect. Others have
been noting SIBC closing around 0500, and now so do I: cuts off at
0500:22*. Presumably comes right back on other frequency 5020, but not
propagating for an hour or so? It`s certainly there when I do check at
0722, a carrier in 5025 Cuba splash. So here`s another DX station
loggable mainly by carriers and when they go and come (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960, Dec 3 at 2332, VOT English is on with music at S9/+10
but just barely modulated. Something`s always wrong at Emirler. 5960,
Dec 4 at 2331, no signal except maybe a trace of East Turkistan.
Something`s always wrong at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2010 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday December
4 from 2200:20 on WBCQ 7490.06v, fair S9; always starting 20 seconds
late, but no problem. Next:
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6060, Dec 3 at 2332, WRMI in accented English, presumably
the Supreme Master herself, weak and undermodulated but in the clear.
After 2355 I am standing by for RHC to come on at so it does at
*2357:14 as in separate log, blowing away WRMI: I can`t even tell if
it`s still on.

There is also a JBA signal on 5800, which possibly will have to
replace 6060 for WRMI, concluding with the RAE Spanish relay at
0100-0200*. What next?

5800, Dec 4 at 2331, yes, WRMI is back here with SMTV, boosted to
S9+10/20 instead of placeholder carrier;

[non] 6060, Dec 4 at 2331, no RHC yet either, but an S5-S7 carrier
with Doppler flutter. Aoki shows that could be Iran in Arabic from
Zahedan; and/or PBS Sichuan 2 from Chengdu (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, Dec 4 at 0723, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR instead of
TOMBS, which continues modulating with squeal on 3215, S9+10/20.
Meanwhile, the only other WWCR, 5935 with music during TUN/DGS/PMS,
hits S9+50 on my generous meter after double-preamps (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA LW carrier search, Dec 4 at 0735: 189
and 198 kHz, i.e. Iceland and UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)
