DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated July 7:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, Saturday July 7 at 0240, surprised to hear R. Tirana via WRMI, which is supposed to be at 0200-0230, then Oldies. What happened? Change, or error? Press review in English about Albania, 0242 Albanian music break. VG S9+20/10 but with selective fading distortion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA [and non]. 6134.866V, July 6 at 0053, weak carrier waVering with music; at 0101, now it`s 6134.886V, or is it Aparecida, Brasil? No, ad yelled in Spanish, and not // 9630+.

6134.87V, July 7 at 0158 vocoder song, no het at first. 0202 there are two carriers very close, one definitely Andean music, so Radio Santa Cruz, not Aparecida. At 0208 no more modulation but still two carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11727 approx., July 6 at 2009, music on filthy distorted FM spur, so naturally first suspect 11760 Cuba [q.v.] but no match in French talk. How about 11860, RHC Portuguese? Not either. Fades up to S9 at 2015 making the FM more legible with less crackle, so I can tell it`s in Brazuguese talk about the weather. Now I bet it`s RNA, which has NO signal on 11780, but in the past has gone totally out of whack like this. It`s not a spur, per se, since there is no such fundamental, and if there were it might have a match on the hi side circa 11833. This expands roughly 11723-11730 but clearest tuned to 11727; mentions Amazonas, 2020 timecheck and song. Then I find a // blob circa 11700, almost as strong, more mentions of Amazonas and about program coming up at 6 [21 UT]; finally at 2029 definite ID for ``Radio Nacional da AmazÃnia`` in passing. If 11780 still has anything to do with it, there might have been another one 27 kHz away, circa 11754 obscured by Cuba. What next? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13768 & 13633 approx., July 6 at 1302, RHC 13700 has just come on and dragging with it parasitic FMish spurs, but not a whole bunch of them, only weaker second-orders recognizable circa 13836 and 13566. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, July 6 at 2009, RHC in French, I notice while checking out the 25mb for RNA Brasil blobs. But 11760 is supposed to be in a break between 18 and 21! I would not be surprised if RHC 19-20 English was also on 11760 as happened a few days ago, and/or 15140. Now RHC French is properly on 15140 and // 11760, or a reverb apart. 11760 suffers from a bit of a squeal, or is it QRM from another RNA blob? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 7215, July 6 at 1300, presumed Shiokaze via JSR, JAPAN, is very poor vs weak ham on 7215-LSB, and strong ham on 7218-LSB. Ron Howard says this is their new frequency, ex-6165 where I wasn`t sure I was hearing them yesterday. Says China is on 6165, but no broadcast QRM on 7215 now (Glen Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 4920.761, July 7 at 0122 past 0201, JBA carrier also vs storm noise, less than 4925 Brasil. I am checking out the unID/new Peruvian reported by Daniel Wyllyans as ``4920``, in HCDX:

``4920 kHz UNID (Banda Tropical) Passando mÃsica andina e salsa. No inicio do vÃdeo a mulher fala "Salsa" Ãs 0144 UT, 04 de Julho 2018/ Esperei atà hoje 05 Julho ficando na escuta porÃm nÃo houve nehuma ID, sÃmente tocando mÃsicas. Fiz um rÃpido estudo da banda tropical em 4920 kHz. Houve no passado a Radio Quito (Equador), Radio Caracas YVKR (Venezuela) e Radio RICA (Radio Informaciones de Centro America), (NicarÃgua). Chequei o streaming de Ãudio ao vivo dessas emissoras e nenhuma nÃo deu o mesmo resultado. Como tocam muita Salsa a suspeita vai para ColÃmbia. Talvez um pirata? Mas quem teria um transmissor de alta potÃncia? Porque aqui cobriu a PBS Xizang em boa parte dos horÃrios. Cuba tambÃm tem salsa mÃs acho que esse transmissor està em algum lugar dos Andes (AmÃrica do sul).

and the next day:

``Reportagem UNID 4920 kHz Suspeito (PerÃ) --- Hoje 05 de junho [sic = julho] fiquei na escuta na maior parte de 10 UT se [atÃ?] 14 UT. Novamente nÃo houve identificaÃÃo; o sinal à bem forte inclusive 11 da manhà em meu QTH. As 11 da manhà sÃmente estavam chegando em ondas tropicais de 60 metros as emissoras Brasileiras e Peruanas, sinal fraco.

Jà està decidido, as mÃsicas sÃo Peruanas mesmo tendo a salsa. Mencionado pelo dexista do Chile, Claudio Galaz. O segundo motivo que me foi enviando uma foto pelo dexista Argentino Marcos Rodriguez que torna o Peru mais suspeito ainda... Veja no Link: http://www.dawnbible.com/es/anuncios.htm

The blogspot contains the same info, still not clear who says what?
A very rough translation appears on WRTH FB, sic:

``Reporting Units 4920 Khz suspect (Peru) Today June 05 I was listening for most of 10 UTC IF 14 UTC again there was no id the signal is very strong even 11 am in my qth.

73 Daniel Wyllyans``

Looking at it 0450 UT July 7, nothing additional in the blog. The YT audiovideo of the music shows the FRG-8800 tuned to 4920, but apparently in AM mode. My question is whether the precise frequency is where I was pulling the JBA carrier, 4920.761? If it`s on pre-sunrise, reception should be better then.

It`s not every day --- or every year! That a new SW station appears in Latin America --- or anywhere --- so this should be of extreme DX interest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5030, July 6 at 1228, JBA carrier, more than on 5040 & 5050 presumed India, so SIBC is still on air past 1200, but dead air or programming? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905v, July 7 at 0200, JBA carrier while there was none at 0158. SLBC now re-signs on at this time. Need a little more to discern how far off the timesignal be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, July 6 at 2000, VOA French with song in English, but why isn`t there news on the hour? VG S9+20/10. // 17530 weaker S9-S6. During this semihour only, both frequencies, so no problem trying to remember which. And both 250 kW, 94 degrees from GB, only difference being an 896 and an 883 antenna, respectively per HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1937 monitoring: not confirmed, Friday July 6 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330v, instead BS continues. So our two-week run at that day/time is over. So far the 2330 on 9330 slot contained WOR this week only on Wednesday. Next:

** U S A. 7490, UT Saturday July 7 at 0055, I`ve been out & about so only catch the last few minutes of `Allan Weiner Worldwide` on WBCQ, which runs slightly over until 0102 abrupt switch without missing a beat to Blalock the Blaster, quite jarring as always. John Carver heard it all:

``Listening on 7490 this evening. Program started just a few seconds early this evening. Allan and Angela in the studio this evening. Opening comments on the weather in Maine this week. Ninety-five yesterday and fifty-nine today. Which prompted talk about weather oddities in Northern Maine which got Allan talking about Maine in the mid eighteen hundreds. Then into the middle of the last century concerning railroads and highways which morphed into how automobiles work, especially ignition systems.

First and only phone call at 0018 from Pirate Joe. Talk quickly changed into a discussion of digital hacking. Referred to most things being digital today and how everything can be hacked now and that computers can take digital footage and create images of anyone saying anything which would destroy free speech as it would be impossible to tell what was true and what wasn't. Very long and interesting discussion. Quick prayer and the show was off the air at 0102. A much tamer show this week. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Saturday July 7 at 0211, WTWW-2 is S9+40 with `History of Rock & Roll` about 1954y, so apparently re-running the series first airing July 4. Also a JBA carrier on 15810, presumably // WTWW-3 not propagating. WTWW-1 is OFF again, neither 5830 nor 9475; but who cares about that SFAW nonsense? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, July 4 at 1900, RHC starting first English hour of the day on proper frequency, not 11760 where it was on July 2 with 15140 off. 15140 is strong but squealing, and now 11760 is off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9465, July 5 at 1259 pop song, what`s this? 1300 Korean talk in music, and catch a partial ID ``il bon ue``, as in Aoki/NDXC: 9465 1300-1329 TAIWAN Nippon no Kaze il bon ue Kor Tamsui District 1-7, i.e. one of the clandestines originating in Japan about North Korean abduxions. (At 1330, FEBC Philippines takes over 9465.)

6165, this reminds me to check for Shiokaze = Sea Breeze, which simultaneously should be starting weekly English Thursday July 5 at 1300, but JBA carrier at best, or have they QSYed again for a new month? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5980, July 5 at 1302, RNZI news with item about ABC journalists being banned from Nauru, quite a controversy; and TS Maria approaching the NMI, threatening to become a typhoon. So look out for missing Saipan and Tinian transmissions. As for Nauru, here are the stories:

PINA CALLS FOR NAURU AND ABC TO RESOLVE 'IMPASSE'
10:22 am on 5 July 2018
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/361130/pina-calls-for-nauru-and-abc-to-resolve-impasse

The Pacific Islands News Association is calling on Nauru and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation to use the "Pacific way" to resolve what it calls the impasse between them.

Solomons Media Association president Charles Kadamana, (left), congratulates Kora Nou. Kora Nou Photo: Solomon Fresh-Beat [caption]

This follows Nauru saying no ABC journalists will be allowed into the country to cover the Pacific Islands Forum summit in September.

The Nauru Government had accused the ABC of misreporting.

The ABC meanwhile has indicated it is still aiming to attend the summit.

The Pacific Islands News Association, or PINA, which is made up of most media bodies in the Pacific said it wants Nauru to rescind the decision.

The PINA president Kora Nou said he was confident that if both parties sat down and talked amicably the matter would resolved.

He said the Forum summit makes decisions that directly impact on the people of the Pacific and so it is imperative that Nauru, the ABC and the Forum try and resolve the matter.

Mr Nou also appealed to journalists to exercise responsibility in their coverage.

NAURU'S ABC STANCE CONDEMNED BY PACIFIC FREEDOM FORUM
7:17 pm on 5 July 2018
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/361154/nauru-s-abc-stance-condemned-by-pacific-freedom-forum

The Nauru government's refusal to allow journalists from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation to cover the Pacific Forum Leaders summit has been condemned by the Pacific media watchdog.

Nauru's President Baron Divavesi Waqa (L) shakes hands with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Nauru's President Baron Waqa Photo: Yomiuri

The Pacific Freedom Forum said the reasons Nauru had given did not justify the ban.

Its chair Monica Miller said the PFF was calling on the Nauru government to reconsider this stance, and use the public complaints mechanisms to raise its concerns.

Ms Miller said the summit gives the appearance of unity, but stopping journalists from one Forum member covering the summit is divisive.

The Nauru government claimed it is exercising a sovereign right, but Ms Miller said the summit is a regional event and the ABC is the public broadcaster of a Forum member.

The organisation also wants the Forum secretariat to appeal to the hosts to drop the ban.

A co-chair of the PFF, Bernadette Carreon, said small island nations which cannot send their reporters to regional events rely on the ABC for Pacific news.

She said journalists should be able to attend important regional events like the Pacific Islands Forum and selectively barring reporters from covering the summit is not acceptable.

Nauru ignores appeal from Australian PM

Nauru has ignored an appeal from Australia's prime minister to allow the ABC into the country for the upcoming Pacific Islands Forum.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Malcolm Turnbull's government had lobbied Nauru through diplomatic channels for weeks in the hope of securing the ABC a place at the summit.

But Nauru ignored the efforts, on Monday releasing an inflammatory statement banning the ABC from the island "under any circumstances," apparently for unfair coverage.

Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull Photo: AFP

The ABC - which has reported extensively on Nauru and Australia's detention centres there - was due to fill one of the positions in the three-person pool that will accompany Mr Turnbull in September.

In the wake of the announcement, the head of Australia's parliamentary press gallery has foreshadowed a boycott, although not every media outlet has shown support for the idea.

Meanwhile, the editor of the Samoa Observer said the Nauru government seemed to be going back on a promise made during last year's Forum by banning the ABC.

Mata'afa Keni Lesa said the ban was concerning and disappointing.

"I think any serious media organisation would be very concerned at what's happened. Now here at the Observer we had the Nauru President [Baron Waqa] I think he was here last year during the Pacific Islands Forum and he was asked a question about media access and he assured everyone that there shouldn't be any problems.

"All the media organisations will be welcome to Nauru for the Forum. Now the fact they have gone ahead and done that [the ban] - is very concerning."

Of course we have to hear about this from NZ, since we cannot hear Radio Australia!

Nauru is quite a teapot:

http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/nauru-population/

The current population of Nauru is 11,312 as of Wednesday, July 4, 2018, based on the latest United Nations estimates. Nauru population is equivalent to 0.00015% of the total world population. Nauru ranks number 225 in the list of countries (and dependencies) by population``. Does that figure include all those detainees? (via gh, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1937 monitoring: could not confirm the simulcast Wednesday July 4 at 2100, since I was at the Enid Symphony Orchestra`s dress rehearsal for their Fourth of July performance. I tried inside the ESO building (shared with Tyson), but even next to east-side windows on the fifth floor, the PL-880 could not detect the weak 9955 WRMI and 7490v WBCQ signals. I assume both aired, as they have been reliable. After the concert, July 4 at 2348, I can confirm the new WOR 1937 on WBCQ 9330.0, poor, from 2330 this Wednesday, as sometimes succeeds. Next:

** U S A. 15809.932V, July 4 at 1819, WTWW-3 is on with ``History of Rock & Roll``, syndicated produxion, not by Ted but with local ID breaks. 1859 recheck, now starting year 1958, apparently one by one, per hour? This could take a while. Is there any publicity about this special at http://wtww.us ? NO! Just old stuff about Field Day.

5085, meanwhile, July 4 at 1933 UT, midday! WTWW-2 can be detected with an S9 carrier vs high daytime noise level, but no modulation audible altho there could be some // 15810v. All other WTWWs are OFF, no signals on 9475, 5830, 9930. Not rechecked until 2348, and now 5085 is certainly on and strong with dead air! Way to go, Ted. 15810 still going with rock show. UT July 5 at 0006, 5085 still dead, others still off. Next check at 0225 July 5, 5085 is finally modulating with the rock show, while 15810v has dropped to a JBA carrier. 9475, 5830 and 9930 are still off. 0559 UT, still only 5085 music, 15810 inaudible. Next check 1255, all are OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALGERIA [non]. 9620, July 3 at 0610, Qur`an, poor S4-S5. RTA via FRANCE is here for one hour after moving from 9535 the previous hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 11900, July 4 at 1301, S5-S7 dead air with flutter, off at 1302 uncovering algo weaker S5-S4. It`s KNX RBA supposed to stop Hindi at 1300, over to KSDA Guam in Khmer from 1300, per HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, July 2 at 1930 on caradio, I`m hearing RHC amid English hour, so punch the code to read out the frequency in Morse --- 11760! Did it again, to be sure. Yes! It`s supposed to be on 15140, which I check a bit later with direct entry into the DX-375, and yes, that transmitter is OFF. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Missed checking what happened July 3; maybe July 4? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1937, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9554 & 9586 approx., July 3 at 1350, CRI relay`s distorted FMish spurs out of S9+20 9570 are closer to plus/minus 16 kHz than 15. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, July 3 at 2151, surprised to find RHC English underway at S9+20. There is NO English supposed to be on any frequency at this hour; on 11880 just at 23-24, still then as confirmed later. I suppose 11880 transmitter was turned on (how?) early before 2200 French, and plugged into a program feed line inhabited by English, maybe also on a webcast or FM network at 2100? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 7365 // 7335, July 4 at 0624, R. Martà promoting some programming changes as mandated by new OCB director TomÃs Regalado, including `Magdalena` from Monday July 9 at 9 pm EDT. To find the program schedule at
https://www.martinoticias.com/radio/schedule/4
you have to pretend you are about to listen to a webcast. Guess what: lunes 9 de julio a a las 21:05: `Puntos de Vista`, not Magdalena (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9799.7, July 2 at 2231, dead air here, can`t make out any modulation, vs high noise level; so R. Cairo English sesquihour is back on ``9800`` instead of ``9805`` = 9804.7 yesterday. Something`s always wrong at Radio Cairo too (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1937, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH. 11735, July 4 at 0618, VOK in French but very strange accent and staccato pace. Also fast SAH and CCI from an understation --- except it vanishes when I switch the R75 from Preamp2 to 1 or off. So it`s some kind of overload, certainly nothing stronger on the 25mb to cause that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, July 2 at 2008 UT, KOSU is already back on air in time for ATC, following downtime for antenna repair (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hi Kelly, Glad to hear KOSU back after not too much time lost for the repair. It would be very interesting to see some video or stills of the tower crew at work, or at least what the hole in the antenna looked like, if you could put that on your website. (I`ve looked but haven`t found it if there is anything about it.) Thanks, (Glenn Hauser, Enid, to KOSU, via DXLD)

Hi Glenn, Here are three photos. Notice the small hole in the flange in middle photo. That was causing our issue.
http://www.w4uvh.net/KOSUantennahole.jpeg

My engineer tells me all but two of our lightning rods were still in place and that we just got unlucky. Glad it wasnât a bigger hole and I was really pleased with Top Hand Towerâs speed and efficiency on this project, allowing us to limit our service interruption at 91.7. Happy 4th (Kelly Burley, KOSU Station Director, via DXLD)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 13810, July 3 at 1540, still no show of new target broadcast allegedly starting July 1, 15-17 UT via BaBcoCk UAE, as checked via UTwene. Mauno Ritola, Finland, says still nothing July 4 at 1515 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 11980.034, July 4 at 0410, VOT good S9+20/10 with Turkish music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 9915, July 4 at 0403, BBCWS news is VG, S9+20/10, could almost pass for a North American service; it`s 250 kW, 315 degrees from MADAGASCAR this hour only for nearby Uganda, Tanzania but overkill USward. 0406 Newsday(?) starts out inviting texts from listeners. Come on, get down to business. 9915 continues at 05-06, but 158 degrees from Woofferton. Besides imaginary Greece at 19-24, BBC at 04-06 are the only 9915 HFCC listings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1936 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday July 3 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, very good. Final broadcast should be Tuesday July 3 at 2030 on WRMI, checked at 2054 when 7780 is JBA but sounds like it could be me, and 5950 is a JBA carrier.

** U S A [and non]. 5830, July 4 at 0628, WTWW-1 is AWOL; neighbor 5935 WWCR remains inbooming. Not heard on day frequency 9475 either. Next check at 1253, 5830 is on with SFAW past 1300, while at 1307, 9475 bears something VP in a tonal Asian language, i.e. KSDA Guam in Mandarin, 13-14 to the northwest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. CAPITOL STEPS --- Have some good laughs this Fourth with a one-hour special. Just heard it on KGOU, which repeats at 2300 UT:

UNIDENTIFIED. 9590, July 4 at 0401, open carrier/dead air at S9-S4. Nothing scheduled anywhere just before or after 0400, not even Myanmar, in a break. Possibly next occupant testing, CRI Arabic via Albania from 0500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5012-5035 approx., July 2 at 0121, R. Rebelde, 5025V is S9+30/45, distorted and splattering out at least to this range, the fundamental also waVering. WRMI`s limited use of 5010 to Cuba and beyond is prudent instead of former 5015; give Rebelde a wide berth! Even affects 5040 RHC which is blasted from the other side by 5050 WWRB during fortunately rare activation, and to make it worse, 5040 is undermodulated. So a toss-up whether to try 5040 on LSB or USB. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, UT Monday July 2 at 0136, RHC in wrong language! Spanish instead of English, which remains on 6000 only. All other Spanish frequencies checked are really SS, not exchanged with English: 5040, 6060, 7330, 9535, 11700, 11760, 11830, 11840, 11850, 12000. And this is about when some guy on 5850 & 7780 is saying ``Something`s always wrong at RHC``.

And this is also when `En Contacto``s final repeat is starting, first topic, seÃales digitales. At 0145-0148 concludes with a monthly DX report voiced by Pedro Sedano of AER in Spain. He spends much of his precious triminute spelling out postal and e-mail addresses (not in Spanish, of course) for QSL attempts, having time to deal with external schedules for only two stations, Afghanistan and Mongolia, plus a quick mention of RVA closing SW this coming June 30 (like, yesterday) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9570, July 2 at 1229, JBA carrier, certainly not CRI via CUBA, which is inexplicably AWOL, along with its filthy spurs circa 9555 & 9585. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. The uncoveree would be KBSWR in Indonesian (also English at 13 should Cuba still be off) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, July 2 at 1302, RHC fails to provide 15 FM spurs today across the 20, 21 and 22 meter bands; just the 13660 leapfrog with 13740. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9804.70, July 1 at 2125, open carrier/dead air or JBM? With lite pulse jamming on 9805 against no Radio Martà except in the mornings. Everything points to this being Radio Cairo, English sesquihour, which is supposed to be on 9800, but is habitually under/non-modulated, off-frequency to 9799.7, where there is nothing now nor on 9800.0. So not only is it minus 0.3 kHz off, but starting out, off at 5 kHz plus, doubly mistaken. BTW, Aoki/NDXC shows RBAustralia is also on 9805 in English and/or Korean depending on DOW, at 2115-2145 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII [and non]. 10000, July 2 at 0603, WWVH announcing its 808- phone number, no WWV audible, but switching to 5000, July 2 at 0604, WWV does the same for its 303 number. I hope they aren`t thinking of leaving SW too! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. From the KOSU mailing list: ``On Friday, June 22nd, our 91.7 FM broadcast tower was struck by lightning and damaged. A tower crew will be climbing 1,100 feet Monday morning (July 2nd) to repair the hole in our antenna caused by lightning. The process is expected to last throughout the morning and into the late afternoon. This outage will also affect 94.9 in Ponca City, since it rebroadcasts the 91.7 signal, but it will not affect 88.3 in Stillwater or 107.5 and 107.3 in Tulsa and northeastern Oklahoma. KOSU can still be heard at kosu.org as well. Thank you for your patience``

Had noticed 91.7 intermittent during `Weekend Edition Sunday` before 1400 July 1. During `Morning Edition`, July 2 it vanishes at 1318* UT, but rechecked at 1457 is already back on, maybe temporarily. Yes, off again at 1757 UT. Be safe, tower crew! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 9665, July 2 at 0445, no signal via UTwente SDR of the new clandestine via Woofferton. Nor 13810 via UAE, July 2 at 1541 via UTwente, nor direct here at 1520 check. The schedule hours, 04-06 & 15-17 resemble those of Eye Radio, as on page 518 of WRTH 2018 the B-17 schedule at 04-05 & 18-19, then via Issoudun other frequencies. Eye Radio was the successor to Sudan Radio Service. Anything about resuming SW at

** U K [non]. 15285, July 2 at 1258, BBCWS discussing a silly ballgame, fair-poor, 1259 plug news coming up, and I knew it! Cuts off the air at 1300*. This is one-hour only via SINGAPORE at 1200-1300. The geniuses at BBCWS frequency planning cut up their emissions into smaller blox rather than sticking to fewer good frequencies for longer spans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, July 1 at 2124, WRMI with a commercial for galcom.org --- the gospel huxters who market anti-DX, fixed-frequency radios, but apparently expanding to other products. Sked grid shows at 2100-2130 Sundays is `Impact Radio`, whatever that be, an infomercial? It is not mentioned on
http://wrmi.net/index.php/programming/
but one may explore many other programs, such as now at the top, `Reserve Military Retirement` --- and US SW is supposedly for audiences abroad? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.9, July 1 at 2118, JBA carrier, presumably WTWW-3 on signature off-frequency, but lacking any sporadic-E enhancement at the moment, just like neighbor 15825 WWCR in the 1-megameter too-close range (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, UT Monday July 2 at 0123, WWRB is on with OM gospel huxter at S9+45/50 and splattering at least plus/minus 10, impinging poor 5040 RHC which is also undermodulated. 5050 transmissions are very limited but exact spans uncertain, UT Sunday and Monday only? 5050 still going at 0150 with YL g.h. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11530, July 2 at 0144 open carrier/dead air at S0 to S3, off at 0149 recheck. Wonder if it`s WRMI testing? Aoki/NDXC would have us believe it`s WRMI-3 with Family Radio this hour, but that was replaced some time ago by 0200-0300 on 5950 WRMI-5, per current schedule which has 24 hours of blanx for 11530. Aoki does show Sound of Hope at 2000-1600 on 11529.811, also *jammed, so possibly CNR1, as I would likely have noticed if the carrier were that far off-channel. Of course 11530 is also a Denge Welat, Kurdistan-non frequency, but not until 0500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
