** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, Mon Nov 25 at 2044, Radio Tirana via WRMI is
ending `Albania in a Week`, unID song, VG on the caradio while 15770
is often rather weak here off the side of the Eurobeam. 2047.5
`Cultural Activities`, 2050 `Sports Roundup` takes only a minute for
scores of some unrecognizable teams (unless you`re Albanian?); 2051
``ending today`s broadcast`` but fills the rest with songs.

Today`s broadcast if possible should bring us news from the source
about the big 6.4 earthquake: 2030 on 15770; 0230 on 9395 --- UT Wed
but note that on UT Thu, 0230 is bumped by `This is a Music Show`
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 7850-CUSB, Nov 26 at 1554, CHU is back! I`ve been checking
every day and it was still off Nov 25. Much weaker than // 14670-CUSB
as normal for daytime. Ha! I got them even before NRC website:

https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/
System status - NRC short wave station broadcasts (CHU)

which shows 7.850 MHz had been off since:
2019-10-28 @ 17:00
and was back on as of:
2019-11-26 @ 16:00
Let`s hope CHU is back to stay this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9535, Nov 26 at 1510, RHC in dead air; then
just-barely-modulation // 15140. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Nov 25 at 2349, carrier audible under wall-of-noise
Cuban jamming against no Martí, presumed R. Chaski; and it disappears
about 2356* but I had dozed off and missed timing it exactly. Several
previous attempts could not even get the carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 6040, Nov 26 at 0001, poor-fair signal, suptorted talk
like RHC often provides; wiggle that patchcord! Which they do, 0004
suddenly Spanish modulation becomes normal, RRI ID.

6020, Nov 26 after 0400, RRI English is VG at 0415, much better than
simulEnglish from Turkey on 6125 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960-, Nov 25 at 2349, JBA carrier on the minus side,
no doubt PBS Xinjiang, land of Uighur brainwashing by the ChiCom. VOT
may have been missing again for 2300 English, or I just missed their
closing. BTW there is another station even more on the minus side of
5960 which comes on later, Kuwait scheduled from 0200 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2009 monitoring: on IRRS 7290 via
UTwente SDR, confirmed Monday November 25 cutting on in progress at
1900:23 as I am starting to recite the KNLS schedule, which occurs
about 1:20 into the program; therefore the playback started close to
1859! Altho the big carrier came on air at *1856, almost muscling
aside the CRI ACI, it remained silent, no Aïda, no ID, no IRRS
sign-on, no news, cutting on modulation with WOR already running, just
as has been happening for the past two or three weeks. Anyhow there is
no doubt it`s on the air today. Via Romania? Ivo Ivanov in neighboring
Bulgaria maintains it is; but does not refute Alexander Busneag`s
analysis that there is no spare transmitter available at that time in
Romania.

At 1928 I check 7290 here in OK, and detect a JBA carrier. But Harold
Frodge, Midland MI was able to get more last week: ``ROMANIA: 7290,
IRRS (presumed); 1902, 11/18; Glenn Hauser’s World of Radio. Poor with
occasional fair peak in the QRN + co-channel QRM. No co-channel
candidates in the List Log Lists, so probably hamsters`` (The 7290
area is prime hangout for American hams running AM instead of LSB.)

Also confirmed UT Tuesday Nov 26 at 0115 the 0100 on WRMI 7780, S9-S7.
Next:

2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW; 9330?
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

UNIDENTIFIED. 15151.5-USB, Nov 26, 2019 at 1440, 2-way in colloquial
Spanish INTRUDERS. Have also logged them numerous times on this
frequency before, dating back to 2006y! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 13770, 13841, 13629, 13558, Nov 25 at 1539, approx. spots of
spurblobs out of RHC 13700; not much program audio but easier to hear
in AM than in FM, along with trace of F# tones. The second-orders are
much weaker and no third-orders detectable another 69-71 kHz out.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. I don`t have a new SW log to attach this to, but
check out this from NPR Morning Edition as heard Nov 25 at 1435 UT via
KOSU:

``Leaked Documents Offer A Peek Inside China's Detention Of Uighurs
November 25, 2019 7:41 AM ET Heard on Morning Edition
Listen· 4:16 4-Minute Listen

https://www.npr.org/2019/11/25/782549071/leaked-documents-offer-a-peek-inside-chinas-detention-of-uighurs

NPR's Steve Inskeep talks to China expert Adrian Zenz about the
documents which provide a look at the Chinese government's crackdown
on ethnic minorities in the country's Xinjiang province.``

Think of this whenever you hear Xinjiang PBS or any CRI via Kashgar or
Urumqi. Or ANY CRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 4880, Nov 25 at 0738, JBA talk seems Korean as in Echo
of Hope, propagating already and thus avoiding the Brazilians on 4885.
Yes, still on 4880 at regular time of 1358; now intermittent RTTY or
something circa 4882. Ron Howard agrees and adds:

``3980 // 4880 // 5990 // 6245 // 6348 // 9095, Echo of Hope - VOH,
with the weekly change of frequencies that is done on Monday (today
Nov 25). All frequencies not jammed; 1129+, start of the daily English
language lesson. My audio at http://bit.ly/2rpFY9o
The language lesson will be repeated in three hours time (1429) (Ron
Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, Etón E1, antenna: 100' long wire,
WOR iog via DXLD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11540, Nov 25 at 1413, two stations mixing about
equally, medium SAH, Dengê Welat and maybe an Erdogan speech (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2009 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
November 24 at 2155 the 2130 on WRMI 7780, fair.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 25 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S7-S9, right after
Bob Zanotti attempts to ID but only gets his name out, squeezed in
after another full canned ID by someone else. I did not deliberately
interrupt him.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 25 at 0230 on reactivated WRMI 9395, S9+10
with some fades to S7; back on, our only airing via the NNW antenna,
and also on 7780 to the NE, S9+10 on meter, but sounds much softer.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 25 from 0359 on Area 51 webcast; and on WBCQ
5130 at 0427 check but JBA; 9330 is also JBA, probably with something
else.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 25 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, VP S9-S7 but JBA;
OK on webcast. Next:

1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW; 9330?
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Need to check whether 7290 can be heard at UTwente or other SDRs; and
whether transmission now start before WOR. Question mark after
Romania? That has been the assumed site, as IRRS does not comment on
transmitter sites they use. Alexander Busneag, Germany, has concluded
it can`t be Romania, also because bandwidth is 11 kHz, instead of only
10 for RRI broadcasts:
http://ab27.bplaced.net/irrs/7290-irrs.png

``IRRS 9510 kHz is transmitted via SAF (Săftica), 100 kW. SAF is 13 km
away from TIG (Țigănești). However, transmissions of RRI (Radio
Romania International) via SAF are also registered as TIG in the HFCC
database.

Nevertheless, IRRS 7290 kHz is apparently NOT transmitted via Romania.
RADIOCOM operates 6 SW transmitters of which 5 transmitters are needed
by RRI:
- 2 transmitters of 300 kW in GAL (Galbeni, Bacău county) -> both
transmitters are used by RRI at 1900-2000 for its Romanian language
broadcast
- 3 transmitters of 300 kW in TIG (Țigănești, Ilfov county) -> 2
transmitters [tx3 and tx1] are not functional at present: (tx3 is a
currently unfunctional "backup" transmitter; tx2 is used by RRI at
1900-2000 for its German language broadcast; tx1 is normally also used
by RRI and will soon be repaired)
- 1 transmitter of 100 kW in SAF (Săftica, Ilfov county) -> the
transmitter is used by RRI at 1900-1930 for its Italian language DRM
broadcast and 1930-2000 for its Aromanian language broadcast.
So there is no free capacity at 1900-2000 for IRRS via ROU.

Here is a schedule of all RRI broadcasts in B-19:
http://ab27.bplaced.net/rri.pdf
(Alexander Busneag, Nov 20, WOR iog via DXLD)``

Someone might perform TDOA during the 7290 19-20 UT broadcast, if we
really want to know whence it`s via.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, Sunday Nov 24, WLC via WBCQ reported by Richard
Langley, NB, heard in Arabic at 2000. Circa 2155 I hear the menacing
WLC IS. But by 2207 it`s S9+40/30 simulcasting `Marion`s Attic` from
7490v which is S9-S6 and as usual running about a semi-minute ahead.
Same thing happened last Sunday, but presumably not any more after
handing over to fulltime WLC as of Nov 28. Stays with WBCQ
programming: at 2300 `UBMP`, 0000 Monday Nov 25 `Le Show`, 0100
`Encore`: by 0113, 9330 is S9+20/30 while 7490v is S5-S6 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1200, Nov 25 at 1357 UT, Spanish has overtaken WOAI, soon ID
for TUDN Radio, WRTO Chicago with the call letters pronounced in
English. More than an hour after Chicago sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200-USB, Nov 25 at 1435, 2-way colloquial Spanish, good
signal, or at least one-way monolog with puta expletives (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1720 UT Nov 25

** ASCENSION. 15685, Sat Nov 23 at 1907, unknown language with silly
ballgame coverage complete with crowd noise and hyper hosts, S9 to
S9+10 on a frequency usually vacant since WWCR moved to 15825 years
ago. Suspect DW which for some reason covers SBGs in Hausa ---- NO,
HFCC shows it`s BBC doing the same (potentially?) every Saturday in
B-19, 1700-1930, 250 kW, 65 degrees from ASC. Why is this? Some
player(s) from Hausaland on Euro football teams? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 6230, Nov 23 at 2222, Chinese JBA on this Sound of Hope
frequency subject to 24 hour CNR1 jamming.

6870, Nov 23 at 2334, ditto except this one is S7-S9 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 24 at 1448, RHC is S9 of dead air; 1454 maybe just
barely modulated; something`s always wrong at RHC.

13631, Nov 24 at 1450, RHC FM/AM spurblob; and at 1452 a much weaker
one with F# tone around 13562; but when I tune up to source 13700,
it`s just gone off along with the spurs before I can seek them on the
plus side. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15140, Nov 24 at 1454, this RHC is off while 15230 is on; recheck at
1540, 15140 is back on at S9+20, much stronger than 15230 S9.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7140, Nov 24 at 1531 JBA continuous AM carrier, at prime
evening time for VOBME to arrive via long-path; less of a trace on the
other frequency 7180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [and non]. 6220, Nov 23 at 2220, carrier with 1 kHz tone,
making it seem like 3 carriers 6219-6220-6221; presumably the Sirjan
jammer which started this week trying to block Iran International TV,
a satellite service from London which first appeared on 6210 in
response to Iran blocking internet access. USAGM and BBC also hastened
to step up SW to Iran. Much more about this summarized on WORLD OF
RADIO 2009. Later report from Ivo Ivanov:

``UZBEKISTAN, Iran International TV audio via RRTM Tashkent Nov 23
0400-1200 11570*TAC 100 kW / 236 deg Farsi, fair to good
1200-0400 6220 TAC 100 kW / 236 deg Farsi + STANAG (alt.6230/6270)

0400-1500 17695 unknown tx (UDO/PHT) to WeAs NO SIGNAL FROM NOV 21!
Iran International TV audio is under "NOR", according to AGM RMS
locations.
*from 12 UT 11570 PHT 250 kW / 021 deg Korean AGM Voice of America

https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/11/iran-international-tv-audio-via-rrtm.html
-- 73! Ivo Ivanov``

Ron Howard was again hearing intermittent tones on 6220 the next day
between 1225 and 1445. By 1730 Nov 24, Wolfgang Bueschel found Iran
International TV on 6230, still presumably Uzbekistan, but no
tone/jamming yet.

Kai Ludwig explains that ``NOR`` is code for Noratus, the Armenian
transmitter site a.k.a. ERV, a.k.a. Gavar, a.k.a. CJSC = Closed Joint
Stock Company, per WRTH 2019 which also claims the site has 3 x 100 kW
and 3 x 1000 kW SW transmitters! Altho there are plenty of nominal
500s, HFCC has not a single listing of 1000 kW anywhere (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 4775, Radio Tarma notified Manuel Méndez that today Nov 23
they would be testing their new 1.4 kW transmitter between 20 and 02
UT; and at 10-14, asking for reception reports. They were going to get
a 2 kW transmitter so maybe this is it but not at full power. Too
early to propagate here, but Mauno Ritola in Finland was seeing it by
2030 on 4775.04.

Tarma sunset is not until 2310 UT (And sunrise 1028) per gaisma.com.
Varies less than an hour during the year. Our sunset in Enid: 2319.

At 2330 I have two stations, the stronger on the minus side around
4774.95, presumably Congonhas, Brasil, with talking and even yelling,
vs CODAR on both sides. And making low het with the other. At least
now easier to separate them.

4775.041, Nov 24 at 0016, now the upper one dominates with music, vs
CODAR double swishes every second. At 0019 it`s recognizably
``Andean``, rather than Congonhan. Hearing same Andean music as on
their webstream via
https://www.radiotarma.com/
which is in $ tereo and no CODAR; various IDs every few minutes, one
for FM 90.9 only. Unfortunately the Programación page is blank (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 13590.060V, Nov 23 at 1909, DJ in English sounds like
VOA-1, but so far off frequency, and wavering slightly? Pinheira site
scheduled this hour only, 100 kW at 138 degrees. Kuwait and UAE both
use 13590 earlier and are more adept at offfrequenciness, but of
USAGM`s own sites, ST also has a record of this, e.g. 6080+ (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 6115, UT Sun Nov 24 at 0100, `Encore` classical
music from Radio Tumbril via WWCR again this week, near-perfect
reception except for constant squeal on WWCR-1; 0150 starts to fade a
bit and cut off at 0158 for QSY to 3215; not clear how much of the
``playout`` piece, La Péri, was lost. Website playlist is 2 weeks old.
Another chance at 0100 UT Monday on WBCQ 7490v, and maybe like last
week also on 500 kW 9330 as a testing bonus (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Nov 23 at 1916, no signal from REE which ought to be
propagating by now; nor at 2229 when certainly if it were on, while
the other 3 are OK, in increasing order of strength, 11685, 11940,
12030 still during silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2009 monitoring: WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, UT Sun
Nov 24 at 0427 is still in ham SSTV; by 0500 WOR 2009 is playing at
S9+30, 15-16 minutes into so started circa 0444-0445. Next:

2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE
0130 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 9395? to NNW
[9395, only airing on NNW antenna is supposed to be restored now]
0400vUT Monday WBCQ 5130v Area 51; 6160v? to WSW; 9330?
0430 UT Monday WRMI 9955 to SSE
1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday 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. 9330.00, Nov 23 at 1915, WBCQ-6 is on with WLC, averaging
only S9 so presumably aimed away from us now. At 0007 UT Nov 24, John
Carver notifies me, ``Area 51 is also broadcasting on 9330 this
evening.`` But when I check at 0215 it`s rather weak and noisy. UT
Sunday A51 programming is: 0000 Timtron; 0100 GRITS; 0200 Lumpy Gravy;
0300 Euphoria; 0400 Lost Discs. But at 0359 recheck it`s already back
to wacky WLC`s menacing `cello IS loop for the
end-of-hour/end-of-world (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
