** BRAZIL [non]. 11780, Feb 18 at 0142 check, RNA/RNB is still off.

6180, the other RNA/RNB frequency, Feb 18 at 0152 has algo on it other than Brasil, about S6, presumably CRI English southward via Kashgar at 00-02 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 7380.3, Feb 18 at 0148, carrier open averaging S6. This could be something interesting. Then searching my archive on that off-frequency I get ONE hit, from 11 years ago:

``Freqs changes for VOIROI / IRIB:
1930-1957 Italian NF 5910.0 (55544), ex 6100.0
1930-1957 Italian NF 7380.3 (55454), ex 7355.3
(R BULGARIA DX MIX News, Ivo Ivanov, via wwdxc BC-DX June 28 [2006] via RusDX)``

In current Aoki we have this starting less than half a sesquihour later:
7380 VO ISLAMIC REP.IRAN 0230-0530 1234567 Arabic "Al-Quds TV" 500 289 Zahedan

One other less likely possibility listed on 7380(.0) is AIR Chennai starting at 0300 with 50 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [and non]. 13650, Feb 17 at 2259, NHK IS prior to Thai direct from Yamata, under big open carrier from CUBA about to start Portuguese. On the BST-1 caradio whose memory scan would not have stopped here without the Cuban carrier. I had this frequency programmed from a previous season when Iran was on it in English to North America, nevermore (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 11868 & 11351, Feb 18 at 2155, seem to be some blobs here which soon disappear along with 11610, MWV Chinese until 2156*. Dave Valko had been hearing such spurs, but I tuned in too late to investigate them here today. How about after 2200 from another fundamental? Checked 9535 and found RHC Spanish with weak Chinese QRM. If same ~258 kHz separation, would land on 9277 and 9793. More likely would be from 11770 Arabic, circa 11512 & 12028, so look for those henceforth (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17720, Feb 18 at 1716, S9 in Swahili. That`s AWR via Talata at 1700-1728 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.923, Feb 18 at 0610, Voice of Nigeria in Hausa, as usual. No further signs of // 9690- as I heard once lately, at least after 0700 in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.927, Feb 18 at 2248, VP S4 carrier, presumably a pirate. One guess here is Liquid Radio on 6924.95, as early as 2018 and as late as 2325:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php?topic=32955.0
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 90.1, Sat Feb 18 at 1949 UT on caradio, open carrier/dead air. Still so quite a few minutes later. Apparently KUCO, which would be running Metropolitan Opera at this time. Occasional bits of the Met come thru the OC, from KHCC, also a Met carrier. KHCC, Hutchinson, Radio Kansas is always a CCI problem depending on tropo enhancement, antenna orientation, but KUCO normally stronger, i.e. the one with dead air. Earlier today KHCC was bothering KUCO more than usual, altho nothing special was showing on the tropo maps (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, Feb 18 at 1950 UT, open carrier/dead air from KAMG-LP Enid, not to be outdone by KUCO. But this could go on for days, judging from previous unattended behavior. It a Spanish gospel huxter satellator when funxional, not exactly a locally programmed station as originally envisioned (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Feb 18 at 1711, 1935 chex, no sign of WWRB with Radio Munansi clandestine. Neighbor WWCR managed a VP 15825 carrier at 1711. Is Munansi gone for good? Also look for it Sunday sometime between 16 and 22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7435-USB, Sat Feb 18 at 1728, MARS net at midday, 8TX1, with full call AFA8KX, 1729 says the net is now free without NCS supervision, secure at will, full callsigns are required. Notable that at night this is a Radio Martà broadcast frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1865 monitoring: confirmed Friday February 17 at 2230 on WRMI 11580, 6855 and 5950. Yes, 6855 is back on and not 6870 as I was hypothesizing earlier. Missed checking next airing, UT Sat 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB. Confirmed by Ivo in Bulgaria, 0630 UT Sat Feb 18 on HLR 6190-CUSB. I try to confirm Sat 1530 on HLR 7265, but once again via UTwente SDR can hear only two other stations mixing, one of them with S Asian music, CRI Hindi via Kashgar. I now think the understation is CNR2 from Baoji site, listed in Aoki until 1605. Recheck at the end, still no WOR/HLR audible, *1601 everything blotted by huge CRI Russian. WOR 1865 also confirmed Sat Feb 18 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.84v-CUSB, good. Next:
Sun 0410v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to SW

Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.83-AM, UT Sat Feb 18 at 0129, WBCQ // 7490, but 5129.83 is axually better by 0142, despite considerable storm noise; the only Blitzortung around North America is off the coast of Louisiana. Allan Weiner Worldwide and Timtron are discussing what an impressive facility the other SW station in Maine was, WCSN. This sounds familiar, a repeat from months ago? Someone says it was sold to Adventist World Radio --- no, it went to Voice of Historic Adventism, WVHA for a while, a splinter sect who would not appreciate being confused with mainstream Adventists. (Whatever happened to them after they got out of the SW biz? I think the single 500 kW transmitter in Maine wound up with WHRI after LeSEA took over the WSHB site in South Carolina.)

9330.00, meanwhile at 0134 check, the other WBCQ is close to on-frequency! with Blalock the blaster. It was probably on OK for WOR at 0030.

9329.82v-CUSB, Feb 18 at 2157, Brother Scare in expanded WBCQ relay schedule, 2159 cut to WBCQ ID and promo, 2200 to test broadcast from Radio Mi Amigo International as publicized for this date and frequency. Sounds like same opening disco tune as last week on 7490 but this one mentions being on 9330 and requesting reports. Frequency is drifting up and down, e.g. 9329.83 shortly; 9329.85 at 2243, mentioning oldies from the 70s. S9 to S7.

7490.13, Sat Feb 18 at 2238, this WBCQ is also on an hour early with different rock music than Amigo on 9330v --- British DJ with oldies from the 60s, Beatles `Hold Your Hand`. Sounds like the guy heard exactly one week ago, so Atlantic Oldies 2NG, here to stay at 22-23 Sats? Anyway per http://2ngradio.com/ he is scheduled again for this Sat Feb 18 and also two hours later UT Sun Feb 19 at 0000 on 9330, unchecked.

Meanwhile the WBCQ combined program schedule http://schedule.wbcq.com/ still does not show any of these recent changes, nor even the greatly expanded Brother Scare hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Sat Feb 18 at 2330, this WRMI is starting yet another replay of the DSWCI tribute special (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Sat Feb 18 at 1725, WTWW-1 night frequency is on at midday! And not on 9475 where first noticed silence. Usual SFAW stuff, and surprisingly good signal S9+20, so this close, 9 MHz not really needed. Almost the OSOB on 49m at this time, just a trace of 6070 CFRX. Before 1900, 9475 is back on.

After 1900, WTWW-2 on 9930 with `Theater Organ from the Ozarx`, continuous organ/piano concert until 1933, over to `Amateur Radio Newsline`. An hour earlier, another good music program despite the title, `Talking Machine Show` was heard on WWCR 12160 until 1830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. 3210, Feb 17 at 1225, all set for the Unique Radio test publicized to start at 1259 and run about 6 hours, upon which the fate of it will be decided by Tim Gaynor --- and there is already a JBA carrier. I resume at 1256 past 1303 and the JBA carrier continues with no change at 1259, S4 level including noisy band. Tim could tell us if he had it on as early as 1225, but I doubt this was it. The R75 also gets JBA carriers on many other `even` 90mb frequencies, maybe receiver artifacts or traces of MW harmonix. I really didn`t expect to hear this low power over here, as I never have before. Note Aoki still lists Vintage FM on 3210, 24h with 100 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910.155, Feb 17 at 0659, HJDH is indeed still on late into the night after reactivating, first heard about 6 hours earlier, but frequency has drifted way up from 5910.06. Just music, including Mexican at 0702, no AlcaravÃn Radio ID or timecheck heard circa 0700. S8 including the rather high QRN level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.863, Feb 17 at 1318, about sunrise here, JBA carrier on frequency typical of WBCQ, presumably remnant of that still on, altho supposedly stopping at 1100 after a night of BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, Feb 17 at 1225, WRMI-5 is still off. I don`t think to tune around for a replacement until 1424 when I do find a JBA carrier on 6870, where IIRC WRMI started off, before being required to QSY, so back there now? I struggle to match traces of 6870 modulation with 9955, unseems so but it`s really too late into the dayside to be certain. If it has moved to 6870, this will affect several WORLD OF RADIO airings, starting with Friday 2230 // 11580 & 5950.

6870 could have been the RHC semiharmonic from 13740, except that fundamental is not on at this hour. If WRMI does run 24/7 on 6870, it will encounter some QRM from that when 13740 is on. I`ve asked Jeff White about this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Feb 17 circa 1300, hardly any signal from Republic of Yemen Radio, via SAUDI ARABIA? Recheck at 1505, very poor S5-S3 with Qur`an, interrupted by some brief non-musical Arabic announcements a few times at 1508, 1510, 1513. Has it resumed marking vespers at Sana`a? Current sunset is 1508, creeping a sesquiminute later per week. Or maybe it`s just because the Fribbath is about to finish. Seldom is any Qur`aning to be heard from this at random chex elsewhen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Feb 17 at 1305, carrier at S5-S8 level but can`t detect any modulation. I suppose RRI Palangkaraya more likely at this hour than NBC Bougainville. Anyhow, best signal on band when I was also seeking Unique Radio, NSW on 3210 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNIG DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4750, Feb 17 at 1313, YL talking at S7-S9 level vs CODAR, but unsure of language. Most likely is CNR1, Hailar, with Bangladesh Betar also listed, while RRI Makassar has been inactive for a long time now, last reported June 8, 2016 by Atsunori Ishida. At this time a few minutes before sunrise here, many carriers, mostly JBA on 60m from Tibetan, Indian, Chinese frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** BRAZIL. 6180 & 11780, Feb 17 at 0213 check, RNA/RNB is off again tonight. What`s wrong? A few months ago there were rumors that this SW station was endangered. There had not been any audible technical issues lately. How about it, LÃcio Haeser in BrasÃlia, or other radioescutas? First RAE gone from Argentina, now this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11854.99, Feb 17 At 0240, very weak R. Aparecida is almost sticking to nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. At 0130 UT Feb 17, I got this from my new contact in Colombia, LuÃs Hernando Cardozo, HK2MIZ: ``DXreport from BogotÃ, AlcaravÃn Radio loud and clear at 0120 today February 17th on 5910 kHz. No signal at the same time from La Voz de tu Conciencia (6010). SINPO 55555. Typical Colombian music and some religious messages``.

As I told him, until 0300 it`s blocked by Romania here, but there he reports no interference at all. So I make a point of checking during my next session: Feb 17 at 0206 there is a low het between them, adding up to S9+10, RRI in Romanian, and AlcaravÃn in Spanish talk is up about 5910.06. By 0252, RRI is weaker and/or HJDH is stronger so they are closer to equal levels; and with USB tuning I can also notch out the carrier/het from RRI if not its modulation. ``Running water`` ute interrupts briefly as often happens on this frequency. I`m busy after 0300, but quick check at 0345 finds the carrier from 5910.06 still evident. Maybe it will stay on late into this night? Only remaining obstacle on 5910 is NHK in Russian via Lithuania at 0430-0500.

AlcaravÃn Radio had been missing for weeks, at least from my hearance. As for sibling station Conciencia, at 0254 Feb 17 I find a JBA carrier on about 6010.04, which could be that, or since LuÃs is not hearing it, Radio InconfidÃncia, Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5011.27, Feb 17 at 0249, JBA carrier varying as I listen, in much stronger sideband of the 5010 Cuban leapfrog spur. Another thing I wanted to check tonight, since Ron Howard was hearing R. Madagasikara ``Feb 15 on 5011.28v, at 0239, with announcer``; he first heard it reactivated by long path: ``5010.78v, R. Madagasikara, 1518-1532, Feb 14. After being off the air here for a month (or more?)``. No doubt that`s it, yet all I have to go on is the almost exact frequency match with Ron`s log, as it will be tough to separate any audio here as long as Cuba is on 5010, but all it will take is for 5025 or 5040 to be missing to get rid of 5010 too. During previous activity, Madagascar would vary well below 5010, and was always unstable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7615, Feb 17 at 0243, Station YHWH is now on with usual stuff, S5-S3. Was not on during previous tuneby earlier in this hour. I never catch him signing on, I suppose at no exact times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 17 at 0101, R. Chaski JBA carrier, standing by for autocutoff which happens at 0101:42*, i.e. 20 seconds later than last catch three nights earlier, Feb 14 until 0101:22*, averaging right on six and two-thirds seconds per noctem; ah, such precision, and total disregard for whatever programming is in progress, but hardly audible here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1865 monitoring: confirmed Thursday February 16 at 2130 on WRMI, 11580, S8-S9. Also confirmed UT Friday Feb 17 at 0040 the 0030 on WBCQ 9330.07v-CUSB, S9+10. As I listen, it drifts up from 9330.05 to 9330.09. Next:
Fri 2230 WRMI 11580 to NE, 6855 to WNW, 5950 to S

Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Feb 17 at 0046, checking for `Broad Spectrum Radio` on WBCQ, but find a much too strong signal for that, S9+50, and hardly left-wing: instead, ad for something by L Ron Hubbard and My Company Tis of Thee, with an address for CSC Talk Radio, California, Missouri, and back to a talk show with Beth Ann, a far-right, anti-American extremist. This is definitely not BSR. And James Branum is planning to cut back to non-weekly broadcasts.

OMG, it`s WWCR on the wrong frequency, nothing on 7520! And it`s blotting out WBCQ which is nothing but a JBA het, must be considerably off-frequency, so weak by comparison that at first I can`t tell if it`s plus or minus. Ad break at 0057 repeats same one heard a few minutes ago; 0100 WWCR ID, and into `Real Radio`.

Meanwhile other reports of this have come in, first as a ``tone`` on 7490, where the signals must have been closer to equal. Some were able to make out VORW = Voice of the Report of the Week, as newly scheduled this hour on WBCQ --- tough luck!

Here are the WWCR programs supposed to be on 7520, Central M-F and UT:
6:00P News/Commonsense Coalition Beth Ann 0000
7:00P Real Radio Jack Hibbs 0100
7:30P Truth for Life Alistair Begg 0130
8:00P Renewing Your Mind R.C. Sproul 0200
8:30P Focus on the Family Jim Delay 0230

WWCR still here past 0111+. So at 0121, I e-mail Allan Weiner and the Monticello boardops: ``Allan, You might want to raise hell with WWCR. They are on 7490 instead of 7520 tonight, blasting WBCQ away with S9+50, before and after 0100 (ID WWCR heard). Some reports say they were also doing it last night. 73, Glenn``

I resume monitoring at 0200, and at 0205 find WWCR is still blocking WBCQ, the latter carrier measured on 7489.17, and now I can barely recognize the dulcet tones of Brother HyStairical under the presumed WWCR program as above.

But next check at 0229, BS/WBCQ is in the clear on 7489.12v, and WWCR is finally properly back on 7520.

Then I check the other `BCQ frequencies: 5129.90-AM, at 0217 with Canadian political discussion show `Just Right`; 9330.1v-CUSB at 0232 with BS, while Blalock the blaster this hour is now on 9265 WINB instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, Feb 17 at 0214, WRMI-5 is off the air! Next three up, 7570, 7730 & 7780 are nominal. During this hour, 6855 has been duplicating programming on WRMI-1, 11580, which like tonight at 0247 check is faded to JBA S3 during presumed Radio Prague. Sure hope it`s temporary, as 6855 duplicating various other frequencies throughout the night and into the day, has been very helpful; altho it`s not as strong as we would like and expect, on listed 285-degree azimuth, same as 7730, which is much stronger here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 5915, Feb 17 at 0242, ZNBCR1 with Fish Eagle IS, usual splatter from both sides, Romania and WHRI; 0251 anthem is playing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 0512 UT February 17

** BRAZIL. 11780, Feb 16 at 0706, NO signal from RNA/RNB. It`s normally one of the best on 25m at this hour, after RNZI 11725. Yet weakie Brazies` carriers are detectable on 11854.9+, 11764.62. Then I check RNA`s other frequency 6180 and find only a JBA carrier. Nothing else scheduled at this hour, so maybe it`s RNA on exciter only, drastically reduced power; 6180 normally blasts in as it is less subject to propagational variations than 11780.

11780 also checked at 1544 Feb 16, no signal either, altho at this time of day it`s normally weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615.069v, Feb 16 at 1457, Qur`an from BSKSA, poor signal and off-frequency; recheck at 1523, now measured on 17615.005v, and audibly drifting as I listen with BFO. This one is 190 degrees from Riyadh, not good for us.

13710.015, Feb 16 at 1534, dead air; no, wait, there`s some Qur`aning, with very long pauses, BSKSA with flutter from S9 to S6. 295 degrees from Riyadh, better for us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5129.840-AM, Feb 16 at 0712, Brother Scare is audible poorly on this WBCQ; and also on 7490.046-AM. Supposed to be on 9330 too, inaudible, maybe transmitting but totally unpropagating. No Cuban spy numbers now on 9330 but there should be, four other nights of the week circa 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 7157-LSB, Feb 16 at 0723, ZL1HX in contact with EA3BOX, calls copied at 0725. I had found 40m almost devoid of any ham signals so started hunting for anything. It is the middle of our night, but still, skip must be really long, so we don`t hear much from within North America if any be active. ZL1HX is Bowden Ashton (BOW), in Wellsford NZ per qrz.com. EA3BOX is a Catalonian separatist at least for DXCC purposes, Joan Solà Vilaseca, 17220 Sant Feliu de Guixols, Catalunya, Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 12035, Feb 16 at 1543, JBA talk with flutter. HFCC shows it`s AWR in Marathi via Trincomalee this semihour only; after a one-hour buffer following Turkey in case VOT runs over. 345-degree azimuth is favorable for us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 7730 > 5850 > 6855, Thursday Feb 16 at 0710, here`s Keith Perron from PCJ on three WRMI frequencies, once again appearing 24 hours before the Friday hour shown on the WRMI skedgrid (when we axually hear `Viva Miami` to start the hour, then `World Music`). The PCJ homepage http://www.pcjmedia.com/ still doesn`t show this regular broadcast of `Media Network Plus`; tho it may be an unofficial bonus, might as well publicize it. Another one is Wed at 22-23 on 5950 (and also 11580, 6855, still not displayed on the WRMI schedule --- better monitor for that to be sure). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11560, Feb 16 at 1547, 1 kHz tone at S7-S5 with heavy flutter. HFCC shows Islamabad, Pakistan, and Panaji, Goa, India on 11560 but both only until 1530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11742, Feb 16 at 1546, bonker INTRUDER at S9 centred approximately here. No sign of a CNR transmitter on 11740 scheduled until 1605 per HFCC; Vatican is finished with 11740 at 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12255, Feb 16 at 1542, JBA carrier here which instantly brings to mind this pirate in Aoki, but it`s supposedly Sundays only:
12255 ReflectionsEurope 1400-2230 1...... English 0.2 ND IRL //6295. And then it`s gone, so probably something else (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 13710, Feb 15 at 1443, VG S9+20 signal of CRI English but with flutter; much better than undermodulated // 15700 via CUBA running about 4 words behind 13710, which is 500 kW, 308 degrees from Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN for Europe --- and totally blocking AIR GOS in English, another 500 kW, at 120 degrees out of Bengaluru, if it`s still colliding on there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 17730, Feb 15 at 1435, RHC AWOL here, remaining on VP 17750 and fair 17580; once again, the remaining RHC signals are inferior to the trio from SAUDI ARABIA on 17895, 17705, 17615 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.019, Feb 15 at 0649, WBCQ is not BSing, not // 7570 WRMI nor other TOM frequencies, where there is a-moanin` & a-groanin`, but playing rock music instead. Quick legal WBCQ ID and chime at 0700, then joining Brother Scare. Not the first time I`ve noticed this happening, unexplained as supposedly BS is on 7490 before and after 0700, and there was nothing else scheduled before 0700. Nothing audible on 5130 or 9330 at this time, both of which are supposedly also BSing all night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Wed Feb 15 at 1410, FG Radio is playing on WRMI, with a few news headlines about Turkey et al., but don`t strike me as breaking news, rather from a few days ago; then playing ``New York Mining Disaster 1941``, by the Bee Gees, which would appear to be off-topic for Cyprus, but I believe they`ve played it before, maybe a theme? I get this if I tune in a bit early for a WORLD OF RADIO check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1020, Feb 15 at 1337 UT, Spanish alabanzas QRMing semi-local KOKP Perry OK, with a 68/minute SAH = 1.13+ Hz, so KCKN Roswell NM must be back on air. Loops for there rather than the other 50 kW SS, KMMQ Omaha market, which anyhow is areligious. It`s tough to keep up with KCKN`s comings & goings, as the latest NRC DX News dated Feb 20 but published Feb 12, reported in AM Switch, ``Stations informing the FCC that they are silent: KCKN NM Roswell â Silent Jan. 26; transmitter was operating erratically`` --- at least they are keeping FCC informed, with an understandable delay in getting the info out. The thing is, KCKN has no business QRMing KOKP, since it`s pre-sunrise there and should be on night pattern with null toward us, and mainly KDKA. But that`s SOP for KCKN. Are they telling FCC about that? (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Feb 15 at 1343 UT, just as I tune in, non-ID for ``103-3 The Mix``, i.e. KSOK Arkansas City KS, before it`s solid on daytime groundwave; and the FM is of course nothing but a translator but better than 100 watts night power on AM? Or rather, ``The Mixx`` per NRC AM Log. I couldn`t hear the second X; classic rock ensues (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans Pacific JBA MW carrier search February 15, UT:
Unlike neighbor Richard Allen, I had all these on the DX-398 when I awoke just after sunrise at 1319 UT:

At 1323, 774 from NW
At 1326, 1134 from NW, 1422 from NW
At 1328, 1548 from WSW
At 1320, 1557 from NW, stronger 1566 from NW
