** ALGERIA [non]. 9655, Sept 21 at 2156, romantic song in unknown
language at S7; scheduled is TDA via FRANCE at 20-22 (Glenn Hauser, OK
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, Sept 21 at 2159, RHC in suptorted Spanish, much weaker
than usual here, only S5, and plus/minus 10 parasites inaudiblized.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Sept 21 at 2159 music from Radio Martà is
S9+25, 2200 cut to dead air, audiblizing jamming noise underneath but
no RHC. RM and jamming still taking weekends off, no signals after
1400 Saturday Sept 22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 7550, Sept 21 at 2152, S Asian song S5 in AM, so another day
AIR GOS is not in DRM here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 22 at 0622, JBA carrier here presumed R.
Kiribati. During my initial bandscan at 0606, did not hear it but a
bunch of Europeans; see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1948 monitoring: NOT confirmed
Saturday Sept 22 from 1452 on 6190-CUSB Hamburger Lokalradio, the 1431
broadcast as monitored via UTwente SDR --- instead Chinese music, talk
for at least rest of hour; did not notice any change in signal later,
but some familiar CRI theme. Still going past 1530, conversation
intonation sounding like German, but not vocabulary, until 1534 ``auf
wiederhÃren``!? So there may have been some schedule change in China.

Alan Gale, England, reports at 1457: ``Hi Glenn, Well, I've been
checking 6190 since around 1200 UT and not heard anything that sounds
like them [HLR]. There is something on there at 1445, but it's very
weak and it sounds like a woman's voice and music, and it's in and in
AM only, so possibly PBS. Nothing at all on the Twente webSDR either,
so I suspect that they're off the air for some reason. Alan``

Recently it was either WOR or no WOR, rather than anything audible
from China altho PBS Xinjiang is scheduled in Mongolian long before
and after our time; and in HFCC I see that NHK direct in Chinese is
also on 6190 at 1430-1500, which I have also never heard via UTwente.

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Sept 22 at 0029, checked WBCQ webcast amid
`Alan Weiner Worldwide` at opportune moment since he was talking with
a caller about the hi-power project. The Continental 420-DM
transmitter has not arrived yet, undergoing tests at the factory.
Expected around November 1, and then will take another month to
install. The rotatable antenna external work is completed; now under
construxion are the ``internal`` dipole antennas within it. Some
photos of Angela and this are now at http://www.wbcq.com

Caller wonders how he can hear WBCQ in DRM. Since the transmitter will
be capable, Allan says they will experiment with it, but nothing
definite. Also says it will be ``compatible`` so can listen in AM at
same time! This is news to me as I have never heard or heard of DRM
being compatible with AM, i.e. both modes on same frequency at same
time. Maybe AW has it confused with hybrid IBOC?

John H Carver, Jr, in mid-north Indiana, monitored the whole show and
reports this week:

``Listening again on 7490 this evening and show started right on time.
Comments made during the opening theme suggested that the show would
be political this evening with the phrase ``moon bat socialists``
being used. Allan and Angela in the studio this evening. Storms in the
area and temps in the high forties in Northern Maine. Allan says
summer is over. Allan opened with the statement that he is very
disappointed with his generation and what they are doing in
Washington. Then switched to a discussion about religion which was
interrupted at 0006 with a phone call about Near Fest and looking for
headphones. After that back to the discussion of religion. Allan
states that there are two types of religion. One promotes peace and
love and one promotes war. Implies that Muslims are Satanists.

Phone call from Freddie at 0017 with comments on pictures he's just
seen of Angela. Says Allan has a beautiful wife. Talk of transmitters,
WRMI and Family Radio. Allan insists that the private shortwave
stations in this country are national assets. Says the transmitter for
the superstation is now expected in November.

Phone call from Dave in Indiana at 0036 with signal report and talk
about division in this country caused by congress. Urges that we vote
out the moon bat Democrats this next election. Says he's not in love
with the Republicans either but that they are better than the
Democrats. Mentioned socialist communists more than once. Then into a
mini rant about political and sexual correctness. Thinks the current
supreme court nominee should be approved and the allegations about him
ignored.

Phone call at 0050 from Ramsey. During this conversation Allan stated
that he knew that he and the superstation were being investigated by
the FBI. Said they were welcome to come to the station anytime they
wanted and look around. Says now that the superstation won't be on the
air till spring. March or May.

Reading of emails at 0056. Programming report from Robert stated that
Dead Frog Radio would premier next week after AWWW with a two hour
live show. A reception report from Mexico came in. Prayer at 0100.
Show was off the air at 0102 followed by some fill music and station
was off the air at 0105. A very subdued Angela this evening. John``

I didn`t quote John`s AWWW report last week in my own logs, but it`s
in DXLD 18-38 imminently (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search Sept 22 at 0602-
0616 UT: 855(2), 837, 783, 774, 729, 648, 621, 612, 585, 558(2), 531;

1224. *936 the strongest, presumed Agadir, Morocco; (2) = some have at
least two carriers beating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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)

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

** 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.

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.

** 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

** 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)

This report dispatched at 1606 UT September 18
