Hauser
** CUBA. 13740, Sept 21 at 1418, China Plus relay in English is very undermodulated; must turn up the volume compared to e.g. 13700 RHC Spanish; at least the two are not producing spurs today. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 774, Sept 21 at 1200, I am interrupting a 9-kHz bandscan (see UNIDENTIFIED) just in time to hear the NHK top-of-hour final prolonged timesignal chime, from 500 kW NHK-2, JOUB, Akita, on the NW coast of Honshu, but remains the #1 MW TP signal here, and despite splash from nearby 780 KSPI Stillwater, worsened since that flipped to music format. Along with 693, 747 & 828, other superpower NHKs, 774 stronger than other carriers thruout my monitoring span today between 1150 and 1215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Sept 21 at 1417, K6FRC beacon from California barely audible enough to copy vs CODAR. Usually inaudible, and I wonder if it be on the air always or not? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.1, Thursday September 20 at 2124, WBCQ in an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback, with Angela and caller discussing texting replacing phoning or other human contact. Yes, Thu 21-22 is now on schedule
http://wbcq.com/schedule/
as Available Time Slot, among several others. It also still claims Glenn Hauser`s World of Radio airs on 9330 every day at 2330, except Saturdays 2130!!! NOT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455 & 7490, re Hal Turner show replaced by music Sept 20 after 0100 on WRMI & WBCQ, Richard Langley replies on the WOR iog:

``He had a power surge in the studio just before scheduled airtime and had to reboot everything. Details here: http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/3174-archive-hal-turner-show-sept-19
-- not that I'm interested in most of his drivel. I noticed the late airing on 9455 kHz when turning the bands around 0200 UT, hearing the "Star Spangled Banner" performed "cringeworthy" by Madison Rising. Looks like WRMI managed to transmit the second hour live. -- Richard Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search Sept 20 at 0605-0613 UT: 846 (this one only presumed TP Kiritimati); 855, 1044, 1116, 1125, 1215, 1413, 531, 558, 774, 828.

Sept 21 at 0246 while computers, TVs, etc. are also running: 1044-NE, 1215, 1503.

Sept 21 at 0600 with other devices off: 774, 747, 738, 639, 612, 558, 855, 882, [no 846], 936, 1017, 1098, 1107, 1125.

Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search Sept 21 at 1150-1159 on R75 with E-W longwire: 558, 594(2), 603, 612, 621, 657, 666, 675, *693, 702, 711, 747, 756, 765, *774, 792, 819, *828(2), 837, 846, 855, 873, 909, 927, 936, 972, 1035, 1044, 1098, 1134, 1287. I then hasten back to 774; see JAPAN. * here means strongest signals, surely also NHK; (2) means (at least) two carriers beating.

Sept 21 at 1202-1215 UT, another search this time on the rotatable DX-398 with DF notations for most: 558-NW, 594-SSE? (beware, probably the KZLS 1640 spur I tracked down a few years ago), 612-WSW, 675-NW, 684-WSW, *693-NW, 702(2)-WSW, 765-WSW, *774-NW, 792-NW, 828-NW, 846-NW, 882(2), 891-NW, 936-WSW, 972-NW, 1035(2)-NW, 1053-NW, 1098-W, 1134-NW. 828 is still in at 1218, almost sunrise 1219 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7466.75-USB, Sept 21 at 0552, strange net with multiple stations, including some Spanish words but otherwise unknown language; whistling (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1533 UT September 21

Correcting error in first item: RHC English on 6000 not 6060:

** CUBA. 6060, Sept 20 at 0136, this RHC Spanish frequency is off. 6000 English is suptorted, while 6165 is not distorted, but undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Sept 20 at 0136, this RHC Spanish frequency is off. 6060 English is suptorted, while 6165 is not distorted, but undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Sept 18 at 2052, hearing Radio Martà // 11930 over jamming, but no RHC --- until soon RHC Portuguese begins to emerge underneath, as Brazuguese also on 12000 at 2054, S7-S8 with squeal. 12000 is not supposed to start until 2100 in Spanish; 11860 is supposed to be in Arabic at 2030, Portuguese back at 2000. We observed the same anomalies recently. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 7550, Sept 18 at 2041, JBA carrier, presumed AIR GOS instead of in DRM. Others report this is sometimes DRM, sometimes not. Seems they have a lot of problems keeping it going (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Sept 18 at 1805, African Pathways Radio on MWV, with its usual condescending advice on how Africans should live their lives, treat their spouses; offering literature to convert Muslims. Notable only that this quasi-antipodal station is quite listenable on the G8 pocket portable with telescopic antenna only as I am dining at an Enid restaurant a meter from a south-facing window. The repeat at 2048 heard on the home rig is only a JBA carrier, like everything else on 16m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. In previous report I neglected to mention the center frequency, altho it would have been obvious:

15376 & 15384, Sept 17 at 1340, BSKSA Holy Qur`an is flanked by noisy spurs plus and minus approx. 4 kHz from 15380. Maybe related to the pitch of the singing? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9805, Sept 18 at 0620, open carrier at S4-S6, 0621 brief tone test, 0622 a few words of Spanish and off*; sounds like Radio MartÃ, and indeed similar talk continues as I quickly switch to 7335 which is S9+30/40. 9805 no doubt an advance tuneup test at Greenville for the RM transmission not really starting until 1000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1948 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday September 18 at 2042 the 2030 on WRMI 7780, very poor S7-S2. Listed // 5950 VP vs storm noise instead with Jeff White narrating another of the three dozen repeats of Wavescan. At 2155, no 2130 WOR either on 5950 or 7780; those and 9395 are all playing different music. WRMI program sked has still not been updated, showing WOR Tue at 2030 & 2130 both on 7780 & 5950. WOR not aired either at 2330 Tue Sept 18 nor Wed Sept 19 on WBCQ 9330, just BS.

Confirmed Wednesday Sept 19 at 2103 tune-in on WRMI 9955, equally very poor on WBCQ 7490v, first on portable, then on home rig where 9955 is better --- and virtually synchronized with 7490v, so this week 9955 playout must not have started one semi-minute later. Next:

2330 UT Thursday WBCQ 9330v [maybe] to WSW
2330 UT Friday WBCQ 9330v [maybe] to WSW
0629 UT Saturday HLR 6190-CUSB Germany to WSW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, UT Thu Sept 20 at 0108, WRMI with music rather than weekly Hal Turner talkshow; 9455 on air this night only and supposed to be // 7490v WBCQ, but music fill there too, different. Both must have lost feed or suddenly canceled? 0111 WRMI with Oldies-style ID, and the canned one about the Everglades, ``back to the music``. So Oldies gets a frequency while 9395 is occupied by Argentina in English. Rechecking 7490 at 0113, now Hal Turner is on WBCQ talking about Israel, but 9455 still music, ditto at 0122, and 0132 when 9395 has reverted to music too but not //.

Meanwhile I checked the other WRMI frequencies circa 0112: 5950 algo in Spanish, so not // 9395 with RAE English as still shown on sked. 5010 still on air with religion in Spanish, despite shown off after 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 19 at 0634: only 936, none lower (except 846 presumed TP Kiribati).

Regarding the stronger-than-others JBA TA carriers I have been getting on 936 kHz, here`s another report regarding that:

``MARROCOS, 936. Ago 26, 2018. 0010-0035, SNRT*-Al Idaà Al Amazighia, Agadir-MRC, em Berbere. ConversaÃÃo entre a locutora e uma ouvinte, ao telefone, provavelmente; Uma canÃÃo berbere, suponho. Apesar de estar entre duas emissoras brasileiras OM ativas (930 e 940 kHz, a saber: Radio Liberdade, AracajÃ-SE, filiada Band e Super Radio Brasil, Rio de Janeiro-RJ, respectivamente). Al Idaà tem recepÃÃo satisfatÃria por aqui, 34433. Minha primeira sintonia desta emissora.

936. Ago 27, 2018. 0154-0210, SNRT-Al Idaà Al Amazighia, Agadir, em Berbere. Locutora em conversaÃÃo com um senhor; 0200 CanÃÃes berberes,

That source gives power as 400 kW: ``400 Thomson S7HP tx, max 400 kW, la: Tamazight (Berber), Tachelhit, Rifain, ar // 711 1044`` JRX says he heard it for the first time August 26, which may also imply the power increase was recent (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 19 at 1126-1131 on the R75 with E-W longwire: 1098, 936, 891, 846, 828, 774, 747, 666, 612, 594.

Immediately repeating the search on the DX-398 which I can rotate for DF, Sept 19 at 1133-1142: 594-NW, 612-WSW, 747-NW, 774-NW, 846-W, 936-WSW, 972-NW, 1017-?, 1035-?, 1098-?, 1512-WSW. NW points to E Asia such as Japan, Korea; WSW to Australia or NZ; W to other Pacific islands. Sunrise at Enid 1217 UT. My neighbor Richard N Allen, with more antenna gain, was also active this morning with audio from Japan before and after 1200 on 594, 774, 828 and carrier maybe Korea on 972 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13780, Sept 17 at 1347, RHC at S3-S5, leapfrog of 13700 over
13740 another 40 kHz higher. Nothing on 13660, the reverse, where
previously heard [and DW in Dari/Pashto is also sked on 13660 at 1330
-1430 via UAE]. By 1415, 13780 is gone, as 13740 has switched to
another transmitter/site for the CRI English relay. Something`s always
wrong at RadioCuba. Al contrario, Sept 18 at 1321, 13660 is audible
with RHC at S5 = noise level, and there is JBA carrier on 13780 when
nothing else is listed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Sept 18 at 1359, noise jamming over JBA
carrier, presumably Yemen [non]; *1400:52 GB open carrier on (after a
false ping 6.5 seconds earlier); finally at 1401:20.5 brings up R.
Marti modulation in progress; S9+20/10 well atop the jamming. Seems
Greenville has not been affected by Florence (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 13730, Sept 17 at 1416, S9 signal but just barely modulated =
JBM. Aoki/NDXC shows it must be VIRI in Russian, 500 kW at 336 degrees
USward from Sirjan at 1320-1420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 15376 & 15384, Sept 17 at 1340, BSKSA Holy Qur`an is
flanked by noisy spurs plus and minus approx. 4 kHz. Maybe related to
the pitch of the singing? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1948 contents: Australia, Canada,
Cuba and non, Europe, France, India, Indonesia, International Waters
and non, Isle of Man and non, Korea South & North, Mexico, Morocco,
Nepal, Nigeria, Peru, Philippines, Russia, USA, Vatican, Vietnam non;
NRC Pattern Book; and the propagation outlook

WOR 1948 ready for first airing shortly after completion on one of our
best frequencies, 7730 WRMI at 0030 UT Tuesday September 18, confirmed
very good (heard intact, tho some downloaders report problems with
cutting/repeating. As far as I can tell, my audiofiles are OK, so try
a different player if this happen). Next:

** U S A. 15770, WRMI: my previous report mentioning that Richard
Langley had heard it was incorrect: it was Andy Robins [and not
Robinson, as I misspoke on WOR 1948 --- sorry!]:

``15770 USA WRMI, Okeechobee, Florida; 15 September 2018; 1905 UTC
reactivated frequency with English ID by Jeff White dropped into a
Russian religious (Protestant) program that consisted of a long
monologue by a woman followed by several choral hymns in English; very
good level (-80 dbm with -130 dbm noise floor). WRMI's webpage shows
this as Transmitter 10 beaming 87Â to Africa but there is no
programming listed for it. Carrier dropped 1930 UTC. Test? (Andy
Robins, Kalamazoo, Michigan, Airspy HF+ with SDR Console v.3 and a 45'
PAR EF-SWL end-fed wire at 20', WOR iog via DXLD)``

And Paul Walker, PA, also replied: ``Glen[n], I heard 15770 WRMI on
Saturday afternoon [Sept 15]. I scan the SW Dials almost hourly every
day and I hadn't noticed till then. An email to Jeff White revealed
the following, "Yes, we are using 15770khz on Transmitter 9 at 44
degrees from 1700-1945 UTC daily. But it may only be until October 12"
Paul``

Here is his original report from the NASWA yg: ``It appears this
signal is back on the air as of September 15th, a year or two after a
storm damaged the antenna this east coast daytime frequency uses. Here
in PA I had a SINPO 45554 signal from 15770 with religion in Italian
and German around 1740 UTC. I scan SW every day now and this is the
first I've heard 15770 back on, today. Paul``

15770, it was Sunday Sept 16, not 17, when I could not hear it at 1701
& 1756, possibly on vs. pitiful propagation, only a JBA carrier from
15825 WWCR. I do hear 15770, Monday Sept 17 at 1715, fair in French
only S8 here to the side, vying with the noise level; 1812 sounds
Italian; 1848 unRussian Slavic. So what are these programs? Probably
religious (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1948, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA carrier search, Sept 17 at 0629+:
801, 621, 936, 1413 --- and 846 which I assume is TP Kiritimati.

And Sept 18 at 0615-0621 UT: 846 TP; 882, 936, 837, 621, 531, 1044,
1098, 1269, 1413, 1503.

I do believe that 936 is the strongest of them, in keeping with my
Agadir, Morocco assumptions. Does anyone have official info about the
current power level? (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 17 at 0113, R. Progreso with rock music, S9+30
fading to S9 and modulation rather distorted. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5055, Sept 17 at 0110, JBA carrier, presumed leapfrog of 5025
over 5040 another 15 kHz higher; just too weak to hear any modulation
to match either. If there is a reverse leap onto 5010, it`s totally
blocked by WRMI fundamental, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, Sept 17 at 0115, RHC Spanish is S9+30 and over-
modulated; woah, this is supposed to be a morning frequency only, at
11-14. Also VG on 11760; 11840 and its plus/minus 10 parasites; weak
11700; JBA carrier on 11980 probably leap of 11700 over 11840 another
140 kHz beyond --- but AWOL is 12000 which is supposed to run from 21
to 04 UT. Maybe punched up the wrong memory button on transmitter?
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000 // 6165, Sept 17 at 0140, both RHC English frequencies
are dead air at S9+25 and still at 0146 recheck. Something`s always
wrong at RHC.

6060, Sept 17 at 0142, RHC Spanish is overmodulated and splattering
past 6050 HCJB and 6070 CFRX. // 13740 still on and I notice that `En
Contacto` DX program has been replaced by a string of RHC self-
promotions with hefty music, catch phrases, platitudes; plugging
reforma constitutional (like allowing free multi-party elexions?
Hahaha). Also anti-bloqueo propaganda, some event tomorrow at 10 am,
during a month-long observance. Etc., etc., so `En CompaÃÃa del
Doctor` also fails to appear at 0150. Also JBA carrier on 6270,
presumed leapfrog of 6060 over 6165 another 105 kHz beyond.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

Confirmed UT Monday September 17 at 0300 on Area 51 webcast; and fair
-good at 0328 check via WBCQ 5129.8 (0329 right into Hobart Radio

and 3210 Unique Radio!)

Also confirmed UT Monday September 17 at 0330 on WRMI webcast (and

** U S A. 15770, Sept 17 at 1701 & 1756 chex, no signal from WRMI,
which Richard Langley was hearing yesterday reactivated, perhaps
testing, at 1905-1930*. Its antenna was the one last year`s hurricane
destroyed. However, propagation now is pitiful, with 15825 WWCR
managing no more than a JBA carrier. 15770 would also be aimed
eastward if the empty skedgrid be anticipatory (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 5010, September 17 at 0110, WRMI with gospel huxter in
Spanish; one of several anomalies to follow, as this frequency is
supposedly scheduled only until 0100.

9955, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0120, WRMI with YL strumming guitar and
talking about a song, then singing ``Frankie & Albert`` (not Johnny?).
This must be `Blues Radio International` at 0100-0130, which come to
think of it, I have not run across for quite some time on air, webcast
or schedule; was it gone and then resumed? Anyhow, 9955 now shows it
also Wed 0330, Fri 0130; and on 5950 Tue at 1000.

7570, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0126, WRMI, OM in Japanese! Could it be a
RAE playback at wrong time? Nothing about Argentina, but mentions
karaoke, Israel more than once, Babyron, Kuristo, and ``no thank
you``; 0129 gives a www. web address, the rest non-understandable.
0130 switches to YL in Korean without missing a beat, also sounds
Koristian. Recheck at 0150 now it`s a YL in Chinese. This is totally
contrary to the skedgrid which still claims 7570 at 01-02 among many
other times, is Overcomer daily. Some new ministry thinx it`s reaching
East Asia at this hour before noon over there??

5950, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0137, WRMI with Jeff ending a Wavescan at
this odd hour, QSL address, etc., music fill; 0141 start over with
opening theme, and WS #493 for the week of August 5! Maybe not the
same one which just finished. On the contrary, skedgrid claims 5950 at
01-02 daily is Oldies, and // 9395.

7730, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0151, WRMI has Scourby pontificating Bible
readings, presumably out of The Overcomer (is HQ flooded???). At 0130
it was // 5850 with the ministry replacing WORLD OF RADIO, and it`s
still going at 0151 while 7730 has defaulted(?) away from him.

9395, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0152, WRMI running Blalock the Blaster,
i.e. `Full Gospel Hour [sic]` as scheduled 0130-0200 UT Sat/Sun/Mon
and also on 5950, but NOT there: see above.

9955, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0153, toward the end of the 0130 Wavescan,
Jeff reading some logs by Harold Sellers, a regular feature. Not //
5950 with the way out-of-synch playback. BTW, for last update of
DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS, I found *three dozen* scheduled weekly airings
of WS on WRMI, some on two frequencies.

With all these anomalies tonight, I am wondering if the clox are wrong
on some of the WRMI automation. RHCuba is also way off-schedule, q.v.

** U S A. Missing stations early UT Monday September 17 at 0131 check:
7505 WRNO, 5050 WWRB, 7490 WBCQ (but 5129.8 & 9330.1 are on) (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7385, Sept 17 at 0132, blasted signal from WHRI is
splattering over both much weakened RRI frequencies! 7375 in French,
7395 in Romanian, even when I tune to the opposite sideband. See also
VIETNAM [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Sept 17 at 0134, Voice of Vietnam via WHRI in
wrong language, English instead of Spanish; giving 900# for flight
info during newscast; was there a crash or some other disruption?
Missed full item. Bigsig with some squeal, and splattering past 7305
where VOA GB carrier for 0145 Vatican relay is already on to violate
Separation of Church & State. Anyhow, GB apparently far enough off the
Florence track not to be flooded or blown off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA carrier search, Sept 16 at 0612: 837,
621, 855, 936, 1089, 1431. Also one on 846 which I always check first
around this hour and assume to be trans-Pacific, Kiritimati.

It seems that 936 Agadir, Morocco, is a ``normal`` catch on the east
coast, along with many others, but I don`t see any remarx about it
being stronger than before/usual. If it continue to show up beyond in
deep North America while little else is TA, that might be a clue it
has upped power as planned (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4810, Sept 17 at 0112, JBA carrier vs. weak CODAR on the
low side, usual huge utehash on the high side. I renew my request for
anyone in South America to check whether Radio Logos, Peru be active,
or not, as no replies have come to my last three inquiries --- I might
do better if I posted this as an individual item, but should not have
to (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
