Hauser
** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 6230-USB, May 20 at 1231, marine weather in English, i.e. VMW Wiluna WA. There is also some other USB CCI, seems Spanish; and a tone. This is also a Sound of Hope, Taiwan frequency, per EiBi, but no jammer shown there. Aoki/NDXC does have it *jammed, with SOH on 6229.941, while not covering a ute like VMW. Where is Wiluna, anyway? It`s far from the coast, 947 km NE of Perth:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiluna,_Western_Australia
Presumably situated there to be at an optimum skip distance from the WA coasts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11640, May 20 at 1321, fine performance of Dvorak`s New World Symphony, but a faster tempo than we are accustomed to, no doubt a Chinese orchestra thing, during the CNR1 Sunday-night serious-music hour featuring Western classical pieces. Ends at 1335 and Chinese announcement. Is it usually longer than 35 minutes? It`s surprisingly difficult to search out performance/recording durations. Also same on 9680 and 9660. Unfortunately, this great piece is being used by the ChiCom as a JAMMER vs inaudible victims: all three Radio Taiwan International in Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860, May 19 at 2230, RHC is off, while sometimes it`s on with Spanish at 21-23. Something`s always wrong at RHC. No Yemen [non] to be heard anyway.

9535, May 20 at 0112 check, RHC is back on original frequency, ex-9530 where it had jumped 24 hours earlier.

13700 & 13740, Sunday May 20 at 1335, RHC active on both with squeals, far-left-slanted, anti-imperio news headlines about Bolivia and Ecuador supporting Venezuelan ``elexions``; `En Contacto` starting late almost 1338, first item about a PEI lighthouse activated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, May 20 at 0538, YHWH is on and audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 530 kHz, May 19 circa 1930 UT, I am driving along Rupe street near Vance AFB, so try to hear K530AM on caradio --- not a bit of it vs high storm noise level. Back home with a BFO I can tell the carrier is still on, 1229 UT check May 20 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 338 kHz, May 20 at 1222 UT, ND beacon TU. I`ll bet it`s Tulsa --- yes, 30 watts per dxinfocentre. I don`t recall hearing this one before, yet a close one; is it always on? Post sunrise, after the storm noise has abated a bit, I am tuning for what I can pull through on LW. One other:

356 kHz, May 20 at 1225 UT, ND beacon PTT; let`s see, Pittsburg KS? NO, Pratt KS, 25 watts, heard before. I`m axually tuned to 354 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 7824.5-LSB, May 20 at 1237 UT, ham discussing 2m repeater frequencies, only one station audible, not his contacts. Must be another second harmonic from the 3.9 MHz band --- so check 3912.25 --- no, the same guy is really on 3912.50-LSB; why not an exact match? Evidently the NCS, but seldom mentions his own call. The other non-harmonicizing stations can be heard only on the fundamental.

Someone else, K5MRK, Mark, calls him W5AS, and finally his own ID at 1245. Refers to a store in Edmond, an event June 2, QCWA chapter 63 (but it sure sounded like they were saying QCWH). All about it here:
http://www.qcwa.org/qcwa063/index.html
Sunday at 7:30 am CT is the ``W5AS Memorial Net``, 3912.5 +/- 2 kHz
But I cannot find any individual name to go with call W5AS! ARRL/FCC:

CENTRAL OKLA CHAPTER 63 QCWA, W5AS (Club)
3509 PATTERSON DRIVE
EDMOND, OK 73013
ATTN: HOWARD O WISE JR
Trustee: WISE JR, HOWARD O, WD5IDB
Previous call sign: KC5QVX

However, the ch 63 website says: ``Sadly, Howard O. Wise, WD5IDB, former Net Manager became a SK on July 14, 2017``. The QRZ.com page for W5AS is even more out of date from September, 2015. So no telling who is now operating the harmonic-producing club station (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9380, May 20 at 1251, hymn in clear at S9-S7, no QRM, 1253 English outro as ``Fly Like an Eagle`` and into Chinese talk. We are counting the days until FEBC get around to moving to 9275 on May 27. Alok Dasgupta, Kolkata, explains on the dx_india yg, replying to my original report April 1:

``After several correspondence between 16th April and 27th April, Mr. Samuel E. Ponilas, Transmission Manager of FEBC in Manila informed that they're moving to 9275 effective 27th May 2018 at 1000-1600 in Chinese replacing 9380 as AIR is using this almost 24x7. FEBC moved to 9380 as 9430 is now reserved for IRDR project``

Ah, so: HFCC shows IRDR the only [non]-station officially on 9430: usual SMG CVA as placeholder, but only at 01-12, 13-14, 16-24 for all 85 CIRAF zones with 100 kW at 0 degrees (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1930 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, confirms: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, May 19:
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2018/05/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_19.html
0630-0700 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, poor signal``

Not confirmed on WBCQ 9330v, Sat May 19 at 2130 or 2330, as Brother HyStairical rages on. Confirmed Sat May 19 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, poor.

Also confirmed UT Sun May 20 at 0200 on WRMI 7780, JBA --- so the revised program schedule is wrong for removing WOR from this airing. Also confirmed by Alan Gale, England: ``Hi Glenn, I can confirm that World of Radio 1930 is on 7780.0 kHz at 0200 UT on Sunday 20th of May; it's putting a very strong signal into the UK at the moment. 73 for now, Alan`` --- with a clip of exactly when I mention uncertainty about this emission. Glad to know it is doing well over there, even if in the middle of the night; get some sleep, Alan!

Also confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 kHz CUSB on May 20
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2018/05/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_20.html
1031-1100 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CEu Sun, poor/weak signal`` Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Correcting previous report which started with typo 7390.04:

7490.04 to 7490.03, UT Sat May 19 at 0001, WBCQ opening `Allan Weiner Worldwide` with ``William Tell Overture``, but soon apparent it`s another oldie playback, in fact the same one heard last night, despite AW claiming to be ``live`` --- should have edited that out; with girlfriend Angela and the WE mic; I thought that was from Feb, but at 0053 recheck he`s referring to Brother Scare having been arrested ``last month``, which was December. Unlike last week, this show is not duplicated on 9330 where BS continues. 5129.8 probably is // but a JBA carrier buried in the summer storm noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, May 19 at 2218, secret WRMI transmission is still on here, with Oldies music at S7-S4, better than before, but still much weaker than 9395 at S9-S9+5, which also sounds like Oldies music but *not* // 9455. 9455 with definite WRMI IDs at 2220 & 2221 before and after Dish Network commercial (their only spot advertiser??). Listened to 9395 past 2231 with no announcements, until a Biermann ID at 2234.

9455 recheck May 20 at 1254, a JBA carrier, presumably still WRMI, as Bangladesh is not starting its Nepali until 1315.

As of May 19, no recent posts on WRMI FB where sometimes there is station news not available anywhere else. As of May 20, still nothing on the WRMI skedgrids about 9455 really being on the air! Searching http://tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs for 9455 gets no hits in the transmission or program schedules. And still no reply to my inquiry (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, May 19 at 2225, rare bit in Portuguese on WRMI, predicating/preaching in Luso, not Brasilian accent. Sked shows ``Frank y [sic] Ernest (Port)`` at 2315-2330 Sats. Believe besides the RAE relay at 11-12 M-F, this is the only other PP item on WRMI sked (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat May 19 at 1830, WTWW-2 is active with Ted interviewing a YL who runs recnet and private FCC-info websites, fcc.today and fccdata.org --- thus she is an authority on FCC broadcast axions, not ham. Refers to Huntsville (AL, not TX!) hamfest, which was in August, maybe when/where this was recorded, rather than current Xenia hamfest. Never hear her name, as Ted doesn`t re-introduce guests in protracted chats, but must be Michelle Bradley per http://recnet.com/about --- Ends at 1906, and on to music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** CUBA. 11860, May 18 at 2134, RHC in Spanish, post-Castro president what`s-his-name remarx on plane crash, // 11760, 11840, 12000. Aoki lacks any 11860 entries for RHC! EiBi shows Spanish at 21-23 to Europe, following 1930-2100 French/Portuguese/Arabic. This must really mess up the Saudi/Yemen service. Neither that nor RHC in HFCC so they`re on their own (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9530, May 19 at 0102, RHC is S9+20 // 11760, ex-9535! A mistake, or QSY? Now it blox any trace of the Progreso 2 x 4765 harmonic, and 4765 music is certainly not // this. That leaves 14295 third harmonic possible (not to be confused with another third harmonicizer, Tajikistan). In the morning, however, RHC still on 9535 at 1350 check May 19 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6270, May 19 at 0627, RHC English is JBA on this leapfrog mixing product of 6060 over 6165 another 105 kHz higher. Also a weaker JBA carrier on 6230, which is 6100 over 6165 another 65 kHz higher. Since they exist, altho Arnie will never admit it, I must add them to DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS schedule after 0500 for DXers Unlimited. 6000 is not involved with these, since it`s from a different site, QuivicÃn, than 6060/6100/6165, all Bauta, per EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, May 19 at 1353, S9+30 open carrier except for a swishing sound, instead of RHC Spanish which is supposed to run here until 1400. Rather, that transmitter is off, and the CRI relay transmitter is on early, as ``China Plus Radio`` with ``CRI news`` starts undermodulatedly at 1400, and this time with no overlap. Aoki/NDXC says 13740 CRI at 1400 is QuivicÃn site, but doesn`t know about RHC until 1400. EiBi says the latter is Bejucal site. Meanwhile, RHC is nominal on 13700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550, May 18 at 2010, very weak Arabic, S0-S1, as R. Kuwait is scheduled at 20-24, and barely propagating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, May 19 at 1354, K6FRC beacon CW IDs repeating, JBA from Patterson, California. I tune the HIFER band at least once a day, but hearing any of them is a rarity. My last log was March 9 at 1524. LWCA list shows K6FRC on 13565.035 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13670, Friday May 18 at 2132, dead air at S9+20, and the SSOB! Too bad there`s no modulation from Greenville for the M-F 2130-2200 VOA Bambara service. Listed GB // is 15120, unheard; 9490 Ascension, 11900 Vatican, unchecked. (RHC also uses 13670 but only at 11-12 per Aoki). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1930 monitoring: not confirmed Friday May 18 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330v, as BS still playing at 2334. Since WBCQ won`t tell me what their intention is about this, how much longer need I keep checking for sporadic WOR playbax?

Not confirmed, Saturday May 19 at 1457 on 6190 HLR via UTwente, nothing audible. But Alan Gale, England, reports:

``Hi Glenn, Mixed conditions again today on 6190, Radio Tropical was weak but audible, but the signal went down again during Media Network. World of Radio started to fade up around 1446 UT and by 1451 the signal was quite good and stayed audible right until the HLR sign off at 1500. There was also a noticeable carrier on the channel earlier, and checking this on USB it should a zero beat at 6191 kHz, so if it comes from a BC station, then it's off frequency. I was able to remove this with a notch filter, though it wasn't noticeable after WoR came up in strength.`` Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7390.04 to 7490.03, UT Sat May 19 at 0001, WBCQ opening `Allan Weiner Worldwide` with ``William Tell Overture``, but soon apparent it`s another oldie playback, in fact the same one heard last night, despite AW claiming to be ``live`` --- should have edited that out; with girlfriend Angela and the WE mic; I thought that was from Feb, but at 0053 recheck he`s referring to Brother Scare having been arrested ``last month``, which was December. Unlike last week, this show is not duplicated on 9330 where BS continues. 5129.8 probably is // but a JBA carrier buried in the summer storm noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, May 18 at 2007, music at VP level, much weaker than S6 9395 WRMI relay of RAE in Italian. At 2135, 9455 is a JBA carrier, still much weaker than 9395 now with S4-S9 of Oldies. At 2325, JBA English talk, gospel huxter? Now I search for possible parallels --- not 9395, not 7780, not 7570=BS, not 9955, not 9475-WTWW, not 6115-WWCR. At 2340 there seem to be two audios on 9455, one of them Brother Scare; 2344, gospel music, no //s. 2348, another fadeup now sounds like Bob Biermann low-key preaching in `Your Weekend Show`, mixing with something else. 2359 no IDs audible.

Two audios is a symptom of a mixing product, but I cannot figure out any mathematical explanation, by the usual formulas, such as 2B-A, 2A-B, A+B, or B-A, for any combination of WRMI frequencies. I also try my two local overloaders, 1390 and 960, with no fits. If it`s two different transmitter sites, that means the mixture is resulting locally here. But what are the chances of such occurring on a frequency WRMI has just stopped using? Or as I suggested before, remotely possible somepirate is doing this to confuse us.

As of May 19, the WRMI skedgrid claims that not one of the 14 transmitters is on 9455 at any time. I continue to suspect for some reason WRMI is experimenting with an exciter running on 9455, and/or some antenna angle bad for us resulting in such a weak signal. Or it could be something unintentional. I`ve asked WRMI about it, but no reply yet. Should this go away, that may imply they got the message and fixed it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, May 18 at 2007, WTWW-2 is on again, gospel/C&W music at S9+50, flanked by the plus/minus 12.9 kHz spur carriers. Perhaps there will be a lot more unusual activity from WTWW during the Xenia Hamvention this weekend? But 2035 and 2130 rechex, 9930`s air is dead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6014.5 approx., May 19 at 0629, extremely distorted music and talk in Spanish at S5-S3 â at first I suspect Conciencia, Colombia out of 6010v transmitter as it has done before, but then at 0637 I find a match on 5925.5 at S9, call-in show, stronger than the upper one, so both are squeezed out of the 5970 WEWN transmitter which itself is just barely modulated! 5925.5 demodulates much better, almost quiet, when tuned in FM mode! Way out of whack, plus and minus 44.5 kHz. But by 1345 recheck, 5970 is back in whack with normal amplitude modulation level and no spurs audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15670, May 19 at 1359, no sign of DRM noise, as WINB is supposed to be testing at 11-17 UT with 15 kW. Ooops, this is Saturday and it`s Monday-Friday only per this from Hans Johnson via Alokesh Gupta:

``A new ASI transmitter, a CE-50000WS, is on the following test schedule: Monday-Friday 1100-1700 UT on 15670 kHz. The transmitter is rated at 15 kW and is using a rhombic antenna at 62 degrees. At times when the ASI transmitter is not being tested, WINB will be testing in DRM via its existing Continental 417B transmitter on 9265 kHz via a rhombic antenna beamed 242 degrees. Programming is from WINB's Internet audio stream and is in English and Spanish``.

On the WOR io group, Tim Gaynor in Australia wondered, ``Any ideas on what bitrate they will be using? A common problem with other DRM transmissions is they use a too high bitrate which makes DXing DRM difficult``

Alokesh replied with a screenshot, which Alexander Busneag, Germany interprets: ``8.28 kbps --- seems good. But wait: It's MSC 64-QAM, and only 5 kHz wide - so it has the same robustness like a 10 kHz wide DRM transmission with 17.5 kbps! Visit page 21 of the "DRM Handbook 2018":
http://www.drm.org/DRM_Handbook_2018.pdf
for more information on DRM system bitrates``.

15670 is in fact registered those hours in HFCC, but as 50 kW in D = NOT DRM, rather regular analog. It will be interesting to observe how the wobbly old 9265 transmitter handle DRM! A third WINB on the books is 7325 at 07-09 M-F, 50 kW analog at 62 degrees.

Stephen Luce, Houston TX, asks, ``What is an "ASI" transmitter? Nothing about that and the "CE-50000WS" on a quick Google search. What company is this?`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, May 18 at 0200, no signal yet from Station YHWH, anti-Jesus, pro-Yahweh pirate. Recheck at 0520, there he is, S9-S7 including the storm noise level. Rich Ray, IL, had reported May 17: ``The last 4 broadcasts have all started at 0158z and off at 0420z``.

These logs the same day say he did not come up until *0302:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,42640.0.html
including this comment from ``The Relay Station``

``I can imagine this guy inside an RV motor home someplace at a campground, sitting down and talking into a desktop amateur radio microphone with a subtle light overhead because it sure sounds that way - almost similar to the scene in the movie "2012"

0506Z - talking about Jewish people and Christian people
0508Z - "perpetual war for perpetual peace"
0511Z - "hybrid man-God"
0515Z - "obey YaWeh, paradise will be restored"
0520Z - cant listen to this anymore, off to bed :D``

As for location, Ron Howard, Monterey CA, says in the WOR iog, ``After he received his citation from FCC, while in southern California, I heard he moved out of state, but on May 5, while listening to a live segment of YHWH, he said he was "8,000 feet up in the Sierras"
http://goo.gl/usWXx6
Just a few nights ago he again said he was "in California" and gave the local "California" time here. Recently his reception has been so good (very readable) here on the coast, that I think it probably is true`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7395, May 18 at 0002, Romanian very poor here, but in the clear, RRI having moved out from under the Cuban radio war on 7335, for the two-hour broadcast to North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, May 17 at 2322, that didn`t take long, WRMI reactivating this frequency, but very weak S4-S6 in storm noise level. At first I think it`s TOMBS // much stronger 7570, but soon not // with music, which I conclude is the Oldies stream. Different programming is on 9395 // 7780.

9455 had been replaced by 5950 as of May 14, moving everything 24 hours down two bands, despite summer propagation conditions. 5950 is still on, with different talk at first check 2322. By 2358, 9455 again sounds more like Brother Scare; maybe they are switching Systems around experimentally? Further chex:

9455, May 18 at 0118, now sounds like Oldies, with Beatles, etc., still past 0202 with no top-of-hour break. Still heard past 0300, but not at 0500. This is extremely weak, compared to 9395. Cannot any longer be at full power and/or on the 285 degree beam as previously; compared to 355 on 9395, and we are between them, closer to 285 than 355, with usually comparable signal levels.

Further chex of 9455 are certainly called for. The current WRMI skedgrid does not show any broadcasts on 9455, but they have plenty of spare transmitters and antennas.

Another remote possibility, some otherstation, or a pirate, decided to glom onto WRMI`s ex-frequency? So far unable to catch any definite ID, so buried in storm noise level from SW Oklahoma. (The frequent Maystorms keep missing Enid, little precip here which we need, but not tornado threats!)

The only known users of 9455 per NDXC/Aoki are: 1315-1345 Bangladesh in Nepali; 1330-1357 Furusato no Kaze in Japanese via Taiwan; 1500-1557 CRI in Chinese via Kunming. EiBi lacks Taiwan, but still shows all the WRMI ex-programming. HFCC lacks Bangladesh but adds Saudi in Arabic at 06-09, probably imaginary (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, UT Friday May 18 at 0002, WBCQ with ``William Tell Overture``, so an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback is starting. Soon it`s obviously an oldie, Angela referred to merely as girlfriend on an antique Western Electric mic, and opening remarks about Parkland mass-shooting, which must have just happened.

BTW, the benefactor for the superpower 9330 setup has come out, per Don Hosmer on the WOR iog: ``The mystery of who is financing WBCQ's multi-million $ $ $ expansion due on the air this fall may be solved. I am at the NASB conference in Elkhart IN and learned that an obscure religious group is behind the fancy new high-powered xmtr and super expensive rotatable antenna. On the web, go to: http://www.worldslastchance.com
After you bring up their home page, click the "WLC Radio" in the upper right corner. You'll hear audio of an English accented lass ID as WBCQ and introduce the new WLC broadcasts. Their schedule on the website matches the one listed a week ago on WOR. I don't know much about this organization, but from their website they appear to be end-time believers and also believe in the so-called flat earth theory. This could be a hoax, but if it is, it's very elaborate``.

Kai Ludwig replied on the WOR iog: ``This could be a hoax, but if it is --- then it is one spread by Allan Weiner himself, since he, according to:
https://swling.com/blog/2018/05/wbcq-reveals-organization-behind-their-new-500-kw-transmitter/
released this information in his radio show.

What I like in particular are the beamer maps, centered on the North Pole, with inscriptions citing completely differing degree numbers as a matter of course. As one comment from Germany said: This is more ridiculous than one could ever think up.

Concerning the question who they are: They have broken away from the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Anything else is, it seems, kept as a secret, including the main question: The source of all the money they burn up.

My concern here is that such things could considerably accelerate the decline of shortwave broadcasting, because they make a complete mockery of the distribution platform --- Kai`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, May 18 at 0141, WEWN Spanish is back on air after missing last night; vs heavy storm noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, May 18 at 1401, WWCR is S9+30 with HF sporadic E boost, and modulation somewhat distorted as usual on this frequency (but not noticed on lower WWCR-1 channels elsewhen). 6m Es map shows lots of activity across the US, but not much into VHF yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1370, May 18 at 1202 UT, adstring, and then station promos for ``Talk 13-70`` and talk1370.com, never any local references, but that leads to Austin TX, officially KJCE Rollingwood, 5/0.5 kW U4 rather than slogan merely as ``Talk Radio`` in NRC AM Log. The true call letters are nowhere to be seen on the homepage, but some hits by searching further, including this helpful:
http://www.talk1370.com/improving-am-signal-reception
which also tries to lead listeners to an HD2 FM simulcast

Why am I hearing this instead of 5 kW ND KGNO 1370 in much closer Dodge City KS? Because it`s gone, or maybe QRP. KJCE pattern does push broadly northward, not southward.

Then to `America`s First News` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6925-6945 approx., May 18 at 0146, DRM-like noise centered about 6935, but twice the usual bandwidth. A piratical experiment? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15449, May 18 at 1404, big S9+10 burbling carrier when tuned in AM mode, but silent in FM mode. During next hour drifts down to 15447/15446. I can`t trace it to any local device, and still hear it when walking around the block on the PL-880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
