has made them available to the rest of us. Starting with last week`s
18-24, they have been posted as attachments to the WOR iog. He says it
takes about an hour to do this, once each issue is published. Merci,
Jacques!

** CUBA. 11880, June 27 at 2355, RHC dead air at S9+10 fading to S5, but cuts off by 2356*. How long was this English hour dead before tune-in? Nominally 2300-2400, so I quickly check // 5040, and find it still on with jazz, 2358 closing English announcement: so 11880 listeners were deprived of the whole hour broadcast. Maybe in a hurry to QSY that transmitter to whatever frequency be next, as unfortunately, RHC has never built in a frequency-change interval pause in programming for anything, causing numerous slipshod cuts off and on at odd times. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1936 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday June 27 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, good S9; but simulcast on WBCQ 7490 is a JBA carrier, confirmed however on webcast.

** U S A. 9455, June 28 at 0055, WRMI-8 at 355 degrees is on at full power S9+35/S9, with BS. Because it`s UT Thursday, when `Hal Turner` now airs weekly at 01-03. The program skedgrid claims Oldies accompanies him on 9455 at 00-01 & 03-04, but the transmission skedgrid shows System C = Overcomer, and that is in fact what I am now hearing. But that`s not all for 9455!

9455, June 28 at 0550, this is still/again on air, with music, and quickly Oldies-style ID (never mentions the word ``Oldies``, however). 9455 is much weaker now, S5-S7 and undermodulated, so is it merely nighttime fadedown or not same transmitter/antenna as earlier? This is much like the never acknowledged secret weak 24h Oldies I was hearing in May on 9455. Oldies is also on 5950 now, but not // 9455. And on 9395, which I think is // 5950, not 9455.

9455, June 28 at 1355, song at S9+10, and not // 9955 with `Viva Miami` mailbag: before the later shuffle, 9455 would duplicate 9955 at 11-14. While 9395 is BS at S9-S5. 9455 at 1356, canned Oldies-style WRMI ID, and could be // 5950 now but too weak JBA to tell for sure. At 1417, 9455 with another Oldies-style ID while 9395 is still BSing. However, 9455 is off at next check 1511, 9395 still BS. But:

9955, Thursday June 28 at 1512, still on the air, with Oldies on this transmitter, S7-S9, rather than stopping at 1400 daily except Saturday as still shown on sked. Which includes 9955 at 160 degrees both for XMTR 10, and XMTR 4, but with no entries (yet?) for the latter.

Final check at 1658 June 28: no signals on 11580, 9955, 9455. 9395 with BS; 7780 is on with a JBA carrier, as TOM/BS starts at 1700.

So WRMI scheduling is clearly in a state of flux, or experiment; no telling when it will settle down and/or the published schedules will be updated to match. We still hope for 11580 to resume in the daytime, but no sign of it yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15595-15600, June 27 at 2350, some DRMish noise but only 5 kHz wide; maybe from a local device. Not much else is on band by this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15667, June 27 at 1350, approx. center of some un-DRM-like noise, not above 15670 which is the publicized frequency for WINB DRM at 11-17 M-F. If this be it, quite lopsided, and not standard DRM transmission (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1717 UT June 28

** CUBA. 11975-12025, June 27 at 0213, RHC Spanish 12000 transmitter is overmodulated and splattering out to plus/minus 25 kHz, really bad closer to 12000. Not unusual for this one. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100.0, June 27 at 1056, RHC open carrier, ex-6099.238, back on frequency. I logged the same exact off-frequency thrice, June 21, 22 and 24 sometime in the 11-13 UT span, not checked on June 23, 25, 26, so could have been corrected by June 25. Something`s always wrong at RHC. I stay tuned for the sign-on frequency announcement at 1100:

``11-15: 17730, 11760, 9535, 7340
(11)-14: 17580, 13740, 6060, 6000
11-13: 6100
13-15: 13700`` plus the four FM frequencies 24 hours. NDXC/Aoki also shows 9640 at 12-14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13634 & 13766, June 27 at 1352, RHC FM spurblobs are back! Out of 13700 transmitter, first-orders strongest about 66 kHz above and below; also detectable in FM the weaker second-orders around 13833 & 13567, and barely a trace at third-orders, 13900 & 13500. It could be much worse! Despite virtually daily chex in the 13-15 UT span, the blobs were last heard June 9 as in DXLD 18-24. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. June 27 after only 4 hours sleep, I am wide awake by local sunrise, 1116 UT, so make the best of it and check out the lowband Mexican MW stations, for the first time in several weeks; mostly same ones usually audible, but there may have been some changes:

540, June 27 at 1111, timecheck for 5:11 = UT -6 zone. In summer, both Sinaloa and Chihuahua are synchronized. I am expecting to hear the usual La Ranchera de PaquimÃ, XETX in Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, which IDs every few minutes, but next check at 1122 ID sounds otherly, and FM frequency as 90.9 instead of 90.5 as listed for XETX; and then a string of federal PSAs, moslty Salud.

The // 90.9 station on 540 is instead ``La Mejor``, XEHS in Los Mochis, Sinaloa. I get Sinaloans on 610 & 650 easily, including again today, but not this one, last logged Oct 9, 2016 at 1226; could XETX be gone, migrated to FM-only? No, as in DXLD 17-48, XETX is in a list of only 5 Chihuahua stations that will stay on AM, as is XEHS among only 4 for Sinaloa.

610, June 27 at 1113, banda music is way dominant, from XEGS, Guasave, Sinaloa, 1115 `El Madrugador` program name (the early-morning man), DJ talk and back to music; by 1125 UT, KCSP Kansas City SPorts has taken over 610 for today. Not a matter of power or pattern change, as it`s one of those lucky grandfathered stations running 5/5 kW day and night, non-direxional, tho June marx its earliest sunrises of the year: 1045 UT. XEGS is on the list of Sinaloans which will stay on AM a while longer at least, but not XETNT.

650, June 27 at 1113, XETNT, Los Mochis, Sinaloa with music en `Buenos DÃas, Llarderos` show (or Yarderos? Neither spelling gets a hit searching the Grupo ChÃvez website), not // sibling station 610 XEGS until they hook up for `Noticiero Altavoz` news at 1200. 1118, long adstring mostly for food stores in Guasave anyway, such as tortillas, carnitas, mariscos; finally Radio 65 ID and something about a change concerning 106.5 FM ``en pocos dÃas``. Holds up longer than 610, with no WSM or anything else to bother 650.

Sharp at the odd time of 1130, XETNT plays choral national anthem, after which repeats the announcement about 106.5. I suspect it`s going to be their *only* frequency as the original 650 will have to quit AM, but it`s fading now and I can`t copy all the details. So later while compiling this report I bring up their webcast among all the other Grupo ChÃvez stations, via
http://grupochavezradio.com/radio/mochis-radio65.html

Finally at 1652, I get it: ``Radio 65, en pocos dÃas transmitirà en cien, 100.5, muy pronto``. But its ``65`` branding both for AM and FM frequencies will then be history, and if 650 goes off, what will they call it? Maybe the same like ``virtual`` long-gone TV channels?! This is explained in Wikipedia, which I believe Raymie Humbert says he writes and updates:

``XETNT migrated to FM in 2011 as XHTNT-FM 106.5. As part of the 2017 renewal of XHTNT's concession, it is slated to move to 100.5 MHz in the near future in order to clear 106-108 MHz as much as possible for community and indigenous radio stations.``

Getting back to yarderos, a search on ``llarderos`` leads to:
https://www.corregime.com/como-se-escribe/yardero-o-llardero

``Como se escribe Yardero o Llardero --- yardero. 1. m. Hond. Hombre que se encarga de cortar el cÃsped en los jardines, campos de golf o zonas urbanas. [does Hond. Mean it`s a Honduranism? Hardly now]

Palabra incorrecta: llardero
La palabra llardero està mal escrita, no figura en la Real Academia EspaÃola (RAE) y por lo tanto no existe en el idioma espaÃol.`` But some citations of wrong spelling are displayed.

and another orthographic authority agrees via:
https://www.buscapalabra.com/como-se-escribe.html

Of course it makes sense to have a pre-sunrise program for groundskeepers, getting an early start when the day is coolest; and unlikely to be well-educated about RAE spelling rules.

710, June 27 at 1112, long-heard low-key preacher in slightly accented Spanish, i.e. on XEDP, Ciudad CuauhtÃmoc, Chihuahua, the one who switches to Low German at times, but if he did it today, missed while checking other frequencies. This morning I am not hearing much if anything from the other Chihuahuans on 540, 700, 730. Fortunately I manage to get some more shut-eye circa 1200-1330, but still a deficit calling for another afternoon nap (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1936 monitoring: as I am unfortunately awake, confirmed Wednesday June 27 at 1030 on WRMI 5950, S9+10 on meter but poor in noise level. By 1058 no improvement. Next:

** U S A. 5010, June 27 at 1059, no signal from WRMI-14, now scheduled southward at 11-12 (Friday -1230), starting at 1100 with AWR-Cuba. Still nothing at 1104 when Rebelde neighbor 5025 manages S9+10. Only other transmission is 22-01 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, June 27 at 0610, WTWW-1 is missing, and not heard on day frequency 9475 either. Next check at 1025, now a JBA carrier on 5830, much like the level of neighbor 5935 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. See USA: WRMI below, RAE changes

** CANADA. 990, June 26 at 0650 UT, CBW Winnipeg is dominating the frequency, not unusual lacking any auroral suppression, ending `The World` from PRI, also carried in the afternoon on numerous USA public radio stations, and previewing next programming from The Monocle, a non-BBC British source, which I`ve yet to run across on any USA station, just CBC overnight. Apparently to be on in following hour after news, as now just some music, fill? `The World` is excellent and ought to be on some US SW station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, June 25 at 1412 check, RHC is off again, unlike all morning yesterday. 15230 is however on now, and maybe was missing yesterday, altho it`s scheduled only until 1500, while mistaken 15140 stayed on past 1730 into its nominal start after 1800. Punched up wrong frequency or memory? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6270, June 26 at 0636, the smooth speech of ``Ed Newman`` can be recognized at S6 about even with the noise level, i.e. leapfrog mixing product of RHC English 6060 over 6165 another 105 kHz higher. Why aren`t these longstanding spurs shown in frequency references? They are on the air. They exist. They make RHC a QRP DX target. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 12005, June 25 at 1413, presumed Farsi song at S8-S3 from R. Farda, as scheduled 13-18 via Woofferton UK, better than usual (also 11-13 via Lampertheim, Germany)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11910, June 25 at 1414, folk music and stilted German announcement, S7-S4 from RRI during this hour from Tsiganeshti site, also USward beyond. Note to editors: unless you can successfully produce a comma/cedilla under the first T and the S to properly render the name, please don`t ``correct`` to ``Tiganesti`` my correct phonetic transcription (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 11925, June 25 at 0622, African accented English with news about Central Africa, report from Durban, S9-S7. It`s Channel Africa this hour at 315 degrees also USward from Meyerton (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA, 15200, June 25 at 0644, JBA signal here is the OSOB in the nightmiddle, i.e. DW in Hausa via Meyerton (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1935 monitoring: confirmed June 25 at 0136 the 0130.5 UT Monday on WRMI, 5850 good, 7780 fair. Also confirmed UT Monday June 25 from 0301 on Area 51 webcast, also on WBCQ 5129.8 at 0328 check. Also confirmed at 0330 on WRMI 9955, fair-poor; also confirmed at 0422 check, the immediate repeat from 0400 on WRMI webcast only. Also confirmed UT Tuesday June 26 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, very good.

Since the WRMI schedules are self-contradictory, I`m struggling to monitor what is axually on in the noisy summer afternoon. Tuesday June 26 at 2054, is WORLD OF RADIO still on 7780 and 5950 from 2030? Yes, 7780 is JBA with what must be the last repeat of WOR 1935; 5950 seems to be // but can`t be positive.

WORLD OF RADIO 1936 contents: Antarctica non, Australia, Bhutan, Bolivia, Botswana, Bougainville, Canada, Chile, China, Cuba, France, India, Korea North non, Korea South, Kurdistan non, New Zealand, Nicaragua, North America, Philippines, Seychelles non, Spain, USA and non; propagation outlook.

WOR 1936 ready for first airing on WRMI, Tuesday June 26 at 2130: 7780 has definitely changed at 2140 check to RAE in Italian [see ARGENTINA [non]], and 5950 unseems // but just too weak in a large noise level to be positive it`s WOR 1936. Please, Jeff, can`t you put this and all other 5950 daytime programming on a 9 or even better, 11 MHz frequency? Altho it had been showing up Tuesdays if not otherdays at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v, today June 26, WOR does not, just more BS. Next:

** U S A. 9395, Monday June 25 at 1919, WRMI is JBA and 7780 is a JBA carrier. Skedgrid has been changed to delete RAE 1900 M-F relay in German, and 2000 in Italian from 9395, instead moved two hours later on 7780 (which was the original time when they began on 11580).

So what`s on 9395 now? Before and after 2000, 9395 is Brother Scare, 7780 too weak to be sure but maybe also BS. By 2126, 9395 is definitely Oldies with Beatles at S9+10, and 7780 JBA talk, BS?

9955 at 2126 June 25 with talk in Brazuguese, but it`s only a clip within `La Rosa de Tokio`, historical media show as scheduled Mondays 21-22, then back to Argentine Spanish, another episode in a series about Brazilian SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, June 24 at 2210, WRNO is on way early, S9+25 with music and dead air, bits of music on and off, so perhaps testing. Second time I`ve caught them on a Sunday afternoon, before nominal *0100 sign-on, which they have also been missing sporadically (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1936, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, June 26 at 0638, WWCR-1 is still off, altho the current transmitter schedule claims it runs straight thru from 01 to 09 UT. All dated June 1, will the program schedule be more accurate? Yes, shows 3215 only until 0300* except UT Monday to 0400* Furthermore, WWCR-1 has blank entries for next frequency 15795 at 09-12 daily, transmitter not back on air until *1200 on 15825. So much for the foreign language block in Russian, Arabic, which Ivo often reports. BTW, all frequencies are labeled in milliHertz instead of MegaHertz --- I don`t think so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report desptached at 0125 UT June 27

** CUBA. 6099.238, June 24 at 1248, RHC off-frequency from 6100 for the third straight morning, remeasured each time on exactly the same frequency to the Hz; at least they are consistent. It`s S8-S9 with het, about same level as 5970 WEWN. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, June 24 at 0635, RHC dead carrier is still on at S9+10/20. Should have turned off circa 0600* after English hour; wake up and save some pesos to feed undernourished Cubans. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, June 24 at 1455, astounded to find RHC Spanish on here, a frequency not supposed to start until 1800 in Arabic. It`s S9/S9+10, so much for OMAN! It`s the only significant 19m signal besides 15825 WWCR. At this time RHC also audible on 13700, 17730, and 11760, the latter the only one supposed to stay on after 1500 thru midday, but both are still going at 1529, 1605. Presumably 15140 retained as still going at 1730; and 1900 starting English. I should have checked 1500-1530 whether 15140 was in Esperanto like 11760 should have been on Sunday only. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, June 24 at 1458, China Plus relay in English is just barely modulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9799.70, June 23 at 2130 S5-S7 of dead air, presumably R. Cairo on signature off-frequency for English sesquihour from 2115. Maybe some modulation would be detectable if stronger signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 24 at 0607, no signal from VON; it was there 24 hours earlier as I tuned past (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TINIAN [non?]. 7435, June 23 at 2125, song and announcement at S6, briefly smothered by S9+20 uteblast. This early only other signal on band is 7330 Cuba. Altho something eastward ought to be more likely, only 7435 listee is RFA Chinese via TINIAN at 21-22 only, and/or CNR1 jamming. (Vietnam starts at 2145 per NDXC/Aoki) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1935 monitoring: confirmed Saturday June 23 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, fair; also UT Sunday June 24 at 0200 on WRMI 7780, JBA. Also UT Sunday June 24 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Missouri, about 9 minutes into show, so started circa 0318; would be good but vs heavy local storm noise. NOT confirmed Sunday June 24 at 1900 on WRMI 9395: Brother Scare, instead! WOR can no longer be found on the websked at this time, rather System G with Wavescan among Oldies on 9395, but that is also incorrect! Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE

** U S A. I continue to let the WRMI webcast-only play
http://wrmi.listen.creek.fm/stream
during midday silence of 9955, Saturday June 23 past 1900 UT and check it occasionally for what`s on it, lacking any schedule provision. At 1920: Slovakia in Spanish (initially talking about Argentina, confusingly); 1930: World Music; 2000: `Dub Politico`, slurry political commentary, can`t catch website or name, but says he is on Long Island, and spells email ejolipa111@hotmail.com, broadcasts at 4-4:30 and 5-5:30 pm EDT, and maybe will change to 11580 (presumably from 7780 and/or 9955) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, it`s Saturday June 23, so this reactivated WRMI frequency is supposed to appear at 21-23 UT. At 2121, S4 open carrier is on, JBM? Don`t think so; still dead air past 2132. 2141 recheck still so, but 2141.5 suddenly starts modulating rock music, not // 9395 Oldies. Suspect it`s VORW, 2144 cut to another tune, ``My Guy``, and don`t stay long enough to hear if John/VORW speaks. VORW supposedly is at 22-23, not 21-22. Next checks, more dead air --- 2300, still on at 2358 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9942.90 & 9917.10, June 23 at 2131, JBA spur carriers warn me that WTWW-2 is active on 9930, at S9+30. Ted had said he would be broadcasting for Field Day on this and 15810 in daytime, 5085 and 15810 at night, but now I am hearing classic rock music, banned from the real hambands.

15809.92, June 23 at 2133, soon however, canned ID in a non-Ted voice, for WTWW from an ``expansive field``, and back to music. 2134 Ted says it`s Field Day 2018, more music. Apparently he is not getting enough phone-ins. 15809.92 is S9+10 and distorted unlike 9930. I do not check these later into stormy evening here, so wonder if FD preÃmpted TOITO at 0104 UT June 24?

Field Day? It`s one day per year when hams set up outdoors for publicity and to prove they can operate as if there were an emergency; are they allowed to plug into AC if available?? I think so. Besides that, goal is to work as many other hams as possible, altho not a DX contest. (Strangely enough I did not receive any notice about what the Enid ARC is doing for FD this year. Last year I don`t recall any generators running.)

While WTWW was doing this, I checked the bands for real FD contacts, of which there were plenty on 20m, but nothing on 17 or 15, poor propagation, not even any Es in axion.

7270-LSB, Sunday June 24 at 1254, guess what, I hear W0ERH calling ``CQ Field Day``, so must really be *Days*. Exchanges a logging code as 4AKS, meaning he`s in Kansas, but what means 4A? At 1310 check, 14 MHz band is crammed with Field Dayers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, June 24 at 0602 with SFA ID, WTWW-1 is stuck on daytime frequency! Yet propagating OK in the nightmiddle at S9+10, 5830 silent. Ted must have been too distracted by Field Day stuff to remember to change frequency on the other transmitter after sundown. But 0636 recheck, 9475 is off, but so is 5830 still.

Furthermore, June 24 at 0634, no show of `Southern Talk in the Midnight` which had been appearing the past few weeks UT Sundays only at 05-07 on WTWWs 5085 & 15810v, both off the air tonight.

Further chex June 24 find *all* possible WTWW frequencies missing: at 1245, 1604, 1730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, June 24 at 0606, WRNO is back on tonight, S9+10 song in English, but with flutter! Indicating a propagation disturbance over this short, less than 1-megameter path. But WWV reported nothing unusual at 0600:

``Solar-terrestrial indices for 23 June follow.
Solar flux 77 and estimated planetary A-index 16.
The estimated planetary K-index at 0600 UTC on 24 June was 2.
No space weather storms were observed for the past 24 hours.
No space weather storms are predicted for the next 24 hours``

By 0900 the K-index was up to 3. Back to 2 at 1200 & 1500. Propagation remains suppressed daytime June 24, worsened here by slow-moving storms with exterior antenna mostly subjugated to interior random wire (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1957 UT June 24
