Hauser
** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 4835, April 15 at 1232, not even a JBA carrier from Ozy Radio: that`s because, as Johno Wright informs me: ``4835 kHz has suffered over heat issues with the power supply --- days on days of 100 F heat cooked the power supply. Off air till 15th May or more. So what SW station plays decent pop music? 11th April (Craig Allen via John Wright, Australian Radio DX Club, 0253 April 14)``

Nor is there a 4835 carrier here from AIR Sikkim, but we have another month to try to hear that. Some Indian carriers are making it such as 5010. And 5055 JBAC presumably 4KZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Sunday April 15 at 1227, RHC with Spanish mainstream programming, 1236 `Cuba Campesina` music with QRM here from China, but // clear 6060 and 6000. Wolfgang BÃschel`s schedule received from Arnie claims 6100 only carries the separate `Mesa Redonda` TV discussion show at 1100-1300 (daily, u.o.s.), in addition to live broadcast 23-24 UT Mon-Thu on 6000 & 11950, but I have my doubts; certainly, not today. The version sent out by the Correspondence Department also has 6100 at 11-13 under Mesa Redonda but I thought it was misplaced. Try it on weekdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13569-FM in the ISM band, April 15 at 1330, after a respite yesterday, RHC 13700-AM transmitter is back in force today spewing a dozen FM spurblobs all over the 22 mb, and even into the 20mb hamband, oh oh! Along with F# tone, VG almost fully quieted circa 13633, 13569, 13502; 13767, 13833; also detectable out to 13436, 13368, 13302; 13900, 13966, 14032, 14100; i.e. averaging ~67 kHz intervals. 1336 `En Contacto` starts. Hey, Arnie, this would be a great topic for your show, explaining how and why these occur; yeah, right. Anyway, I comprehend his lickety-split presentation on one of them rather than 13700-AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7140 & 7180, April 15 circa 0300, JBA AM carriers, INTRUDERS amid the LSB hams, from VOBME, both now sounding close to on-frequency judging from BFO het pitches, and no DRM noise jamming audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 5950, April 15 at 0311, V of Tigray Revolution with HOA music horribly mixing with Oldies (// L&C 9455) from WRMI`s greatly expanded new frequency, both weak and still a medium SAH. Leads me to believe that WRMI is the one slightly off-frequency, as same SAH was being heard earlier when nothing else is scheduled on 5950 to beat with it. Could that beat be caused by WRMI running two transmitters on 5950, by mistake? As of 1550 UT April 15, WRMI skedgrid http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs still has blank space for XMTR #14 between 0200 and 1100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 13720, April 14 at 1835, J-pop is the SSOB at S9+5, even stronger than 13605 jamming+MartÃ, and weaker 13845 WWCR. It`s NHK in Japanese at 17-19, 85 degrees from Yamata for CIRAF 14 & 16, which means the Southern Cone. Incidentally good for Hawaii on the way at 7-9 am local (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 12065, April 14 at 1839, pop song at S5-S3, yet stronger than 12050 WEWN, 1842 YL DJ in Russian; 1852 mentions I-phone, various gorods, cut off at 1859.5* mid-song. Make that K-pop. HFCC shows it`s KBSWR, 1800-1900, 250 kW, 58 degrees from Woofferton UK, since April 4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTEING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT [and non]. 15535-15540-15545, April 14 at 1833, R. Kuwait DRM in English is at imaginary level, slightly increased noise above background on band?

Alexander Busneag, Germany, has compiled this current DRM schedule showing DRM in use by only 5 stations on SW; truly a failing mode:
http://ab27.bplaced.net/drm.pdf
India suspended its DRM months ago for unclear reasons. HFCC also has some `N` DRM listings for Bulgaria, China, Germany, Russia, Singapore, most or all imaginary; not including DRM used for jamming by China, Ethiopia (are you cool with that, Ruxandra?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, April 14 at 1834, JBA carrier must be MWV APR in English here, instead of usual booming signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 700, April 15 at 1202, XEGD with full ID, still calling itself `La Poderosa`, which 5/1 kW is not --- gotta think big, in Hidalgo del Parral, Chihuahua. Most of the other lowband XEs are fading out by now after our sunrise 1158 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 640, Sunday April 15 at 1200 UT, KWPN Moore, with `Sunday Morning Magazine`, pubaffs interview about mosquitos infecting Oklahomans with West Nile endemic but not yet Zika. Divergence from stupid sports talk every week at this time when audience is assumed to be minimal. Same show is on 930 WKY, diverging from stupid sports talk in Spanish, and presumably other FM stations in cluster, probably not synchronized in separate playouts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 740, April 15 at 1200 UT as I tune across, no signal, a split second later, KRMG Tulsa pops on at full 50 kW day power. Day pattern has two major lobes about 10 degrees CCW from E/W, and 25 kW night pattern quite similar. Enid is a bit off but at 100 miles distance still mainly covered day and night. 1200 UT is correct KRMG FCC LSR time for April; May & July will be 1115 UT, and earliest 1100 UT during June (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15520, April 14 at 1850, no signal from REE on what is normally its best signal opposite from here, nor on 15390. 17855, the supposed North American frequency, is VP S1, and the other 16m, 17715 is also audible as a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1925 monitoring: not confirmed, still no signal Sat Apr 14 at 2130 on 9330 from WBCQ. Not confirmed next airing either, Sat Apr 14 at 2300 on 7780 WRMI: instead, yet another airing of VORW! That also blows away HRI at 2330. WRMI skedgrid still shows both of us this hour, but I see has also added another WOR airing, UT Monday 0130 on 5850 to NW, 5950 to S, 7780 to NE.

WOR still confirmed UT Sunday April 15 at 0200 on WRMI 7780, fair. Also confirmed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, UT Sunday Apr 15 0329 at India/International Waters, i.e. 13 minutes in, so started circa 0316. Next, maybe:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0130 WRMI 5850 to NW, 5950 to S, 7780 to NE [NEW]
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 0400 WRMI webcast only
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1926?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1926?]

Full WOR sked on all outlets, podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330v, April 14 at 1829, this WBCQ is still AWOL, no signal. Also random later chex April 15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9462.1 & 9487.9, Sat April 14 at 1830, JBA plus/minus 12.9 kHz spur carriers out of 9475.0 WTWW with ham program at S9+25; still nothing on 9930, which used to carry `Theatre Organ in the Ozarx` at this time; signature spurs indicate the #2 transmitter for 9930 is axually radiating on the #1 frequency, 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7504.981V, Sunday April 15 at 1304, WRNO is still on but playing English sign-off by Mr Duncan asserting it`s now 4 AM GMT! Schedule as 1-4 AM only, and good night! Not only is it not night, but resumes huxtering in Chinese at S9+20/30, still going past 1325 but off at 1410 check. Modulation is slightly distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, April 14 at 1848 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS has resumed its totally wacko transmission consisting of rapid constant noise bursts, at the rate of 300/minute or 5/second, and separately, bits of modulation as carrier cuts on and off at slower irregular intervals. Furthermore, for the first time I find it off-frequency: at 1130.5, drifting down steadily to 1129.8 by 1849 UT! What a piece of crap this station is; yet sometimes it manages to funxion normally or is off air completely. It`s licensed for 250/1 watt U3, and direxional north semicircle. When I hear it to the SW, unseems direxional either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1714 UT April 15

Saturday, April 14 2018

Hauser
** CHAD [non]. 5960, April 14 at 0459, carrier at S9-S8, soon African music, and announcement in *French*, which I can`t copy fully, including, ``Vous Ãtes à l`ecoute de --- internationale``, ``six heures, samedi quatorze avril``, frÃquences and program summary for the hour to follow; 0503 hilife music.

Since it starts in French rather than English, I assume this is the one originating from Ndjamena rather than Maiduguri, whether it is really appelling itself Ndarason rather than Dandal Kura yet. This hour only is now registered as 250 kW, 65 degrees from ASCENSION, something BaBcoCkian in Kanuri (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 7330, April 14 at 0054, no signal from RHC, supposedly scheduled 21-04 UT. Nor anything on 7340, the other side of jamming and Radio MartÃ, which is supposedly scheduled mornings only, 11-15 UT. But at 0455, 7340 is on with RHC Spanish, S9, undermodulated and USB necessary vs 7335 jamming and MartÃ; off by 0505 recheck. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, April 14 at 0504, RHC English missing from this one, still nothing at 0514. The rest of The Cuban Five are on: best on 5040 and 6060 as usual; 6000 suptorted --- wiggle that patchcord; 6165 is S9 to S9+20/30 with old news obviously pre-Drumpf strike on Syria (if there is any ``breaking news`` after 0100 UT, RHC won`t get around to it until tomorrow; or maybe not even after 1900 UT when the English hour airs first, to be repeated seven times). Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, April 14 at 1457, RHC is on but no spurs today, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9490, April 14 at 0059, only jamming heard past 0100 as jamming builds up, but soon JBA carrier detectable amid from Radio RepÃblica. HFCC A-18 claims RMI has some Spanish broadcast, 150 kW, 285 degrees from Issoudun, FRANCE at 0200-0300 & 0300-0400; also days 1 & 7 only at 0400-0500. And duplicate registrations on 7350, where nothing is heard, after CRI English via Kashgar until <0100.

WRTH 2018 pp 512-513 shows two websites:
http://www.directorio.org
which linx in turn to this for the broadcasts in particular:
http://directorio.wildapricot.org/radiorepublica
Wild Apricot? What`s that about? It shows:

``CUBA: Onda Corta 9490 kHz
lunes a viernes 9pm-11pm
sabados y domingos 9pm-12am``

i.e. EST/EDT, so during Yanqui-mandated DST, it`s one UT hour earlier than registered, starting at 0100 UT! And the weekend extension in UT days should be in HFCC as 1 & 2, not 7 & 1. ABOUT:

``Radio RepÃblica is an International radio station run by the Cuban Democratic Directorate "Directorio" transmitting uncensored news and information to the Cuban people.

It`s always seemed strange to me that RR, which originally broadcast via WRMI when it was 9955 only, altho brokered by RMI, keeps using France now that multiple much closer 100 kW Okeechobee transmitters are available, which ought to put a stronger signal into Cuba vs the jamming. From over here, the 9490 signal from France varies greatly in level and S/N ratio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6905-AM, April 14 at 0009, JBA carrier; 0052 electronic music S9+10 vs storm noise east of here, past 0107, with long pauses of dead air. These logs say it was Cool AM Radio:

** UGANDA [non]. 15239.935, April 14 at 1454, S2-S3 African music, i.e. Radio Munansi via WWRB. If it`s anything like last Saturday, could be continuous music for hours before getting down to business (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, April 14 at 0458, WRMI `Oldies` channel is S8-S5 while there are no signals from // 9395 & 9455; 5950 for at least the third night now, and still unshown on the skedgrid for WRMI-14, off the air from 0200 to 1100, so now may be filling all those hours? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330, April 14 at 1500 and 2330 chex, no signal detectable from this WBCQ. Wonder what happened to main transmitter, which was doing so well last week? Larry Will reported to the WOR iog:

``WBCQ 9330 noted Friday April 13, 2018, 1800-1815 UT after seemingly off for several days. Talk by some doomsday/prepper nut for several minutes, and then Brother Scare with commentary. Fair to good signal on the PL-880 despite overall noisy conditions. The transmission appears to be in AM mode; new exciter? (Larry Will, Mount Airy, MD)``

Evidently nothing about 9330 on `Allan Weiner Worldwide``; John Carver`s reportage of AWWW this week, UT Sat Apr 14:

``Listening on 7490 this evening as the signal is greater than 20 over. Theme song started at 0001 after some fill music. Over the theme Allan stated that there would be a real mailbag this evening. Allan and Angela in studio 9 in FLA. Allan commented on Angela's tan and said she looked like a pretzel.

Opening talk about how AM and SW are very similar except for channel spacing, frequency range and antennas. Then talked about antennas and stated that 5130 was back on the thousand foot rhombic. Talked very briefly about the rotating curtain antenna that would be used on the new super station. This mutated into a talk about radio waves which are light waves and then talked about all the different waves until he got to cosmic waves.

Reading of actual QSL letters began at 0031. Reading of emails began at 0049. Allan dodged two questions about who was behind the new super station and talked about the power consumption of the new transmitter and said that the electric service at the station was being upgraded. He mentioned some numbers for electrical consumption which I didn't catch but I know the last number mentioned was over a million watts.

Program was off the air at 0100. No phone calls or politics this evening. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, 9930, 9475, 5830, 5085, April 14 at 1459, WTWW is missing from all possible frequencies; natch, including the spurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, April 13 at 2119 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS back to normal for now, presumably the station with unbroken carrier talking instead of musicking on right bearing vs heavy storm noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA. A18 schedule for RAE Argentina to the World via WRMI from 1 April:
English 0100-0200 Tue-Sat 9395 NAm (also // on 9455-ed)
Japanese 0800-0900 Mon-Fri 9455 WNAm & Asia
Chinese 0900-1000 Mon-Fri 9455 WNAm & Asia
Portuguese 1200-1300 Mon-Fri 9955 LAm
German 1900-2000 Mon-Fri 9395 NAm & Eu
Italian 2000-2100 Mon-Fri 9395 NAm & Eu
Spanish 2300-0000 Mon-Fri 5950 LAm
French 2330-0000 Mon-Fri 7780 NAm & Eu (RAE on Twitter via Alan Pennington, April BDXC-UK Communication via DXLD)

Don`t you believe it! As I have been reporting [but not on this list, of course --- bdxc-news], some of these are incorrect! Even if they don`t know it in Bs. As.

Portuguese has timeshifted for Miami DST to 1100-1200, also on 9455.
German was missing for a while, but eventually came back.
Italian has been failing to appear at all, but need to check again.

Spanish has been at 2200-2300 and still shown on WRMI sked and why should it have changed? April 12 I check circa 2230 when it`s too weak to be sure, and there is also a SAH from something else on 5950. At 2330, however, I can tell WRMI is running FÃmily Radio as scheduled; and still the SAH. Nothing but WRMI is scheduled in Aoki, EiBi and HFCC. RAE Chinese & Japanese are difficult to confirm due to sleeping and lack of propagation, if really on the air. Should be on 5850 in the middle of our nights (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST; also to bdxc-news io group)

Mauno Ritola, Finland, replied April 13: ``Nothing on either 9455 or 5850 kHz at 0820. And one more correction: 9455 kHz is on the air in Japanese at 0850 and continues in Chinese at 0900 with RAE ID`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9675, April 13 at 1342, S6-S7 classic rock music; 1411 Russian. CRI Russian at 13-15, 500 kW, 37 degrees from SZG site for DVR, and consequently also USward. 500 kW from Saudi Arabia is also listed here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 13 at 0059, no signal from RHC past 0100 when English is supposed to start, as it is already underway on 6165 with `This Day in History`. A JBA carrier on 6000, however, inexplicable unless R. GuaÃba, Brasil has come back after years to match the listing in Aoki/NDXC.

(Meanwhile, at 0059.5 my nearest streetlite ignites with an RF noise burst, vs orange sky at 0103 sunset tnx to huge wildfires in western OK.)

7330, April 13 at 0105, RHC Spanish is still adjacent to jamming and R. Martà on 7335; huge splash unless tuned in LSB (the other Martà on 7365 requires this BBC Pashto listener via AUSTRIA 7360 also to employ LSB). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, April 13 at 1304, RHC Spanish not on yet, supposed to start at 1300; but 13740 is going from its earlier sign-on.

I knew it! 13700 is on by 1333 recheck, heard first around 13565 impinging on the Part 15 HIFER band, among constellation of filthy FMish spurblobs, just like the same transmitter used to spew all over the 19mb from 15370 in B-17, frequently but not every day. The F# above Cmiddle tone is there too and also audible in AM on fundamental 13700. The closer spurs are best audible in FM mode, but not fully quieted. The further ones only a trace of the blob or tone, all quite approx. around 67 kHz intervals: 13565, 13633, 13767, 13834, 13901, 13968, 14038? 13499, 13432, 13366, 13300? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, April 13 at 0546, JBA carrier, presumed R. Kiribati sporadically active (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PANAMA [non]. 9955, WRMI, April 13 at 0049, `Antena DX` with postal address, as the only media program originating in PanamÃ; sked UT Fridays 0030-0100. And luckily, NO jamming right now. BTW, home station La Chispa EstÃreo is applying for a 49mb SW frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1925 monitoring: still NO signal from WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, Thursday April 12 at 2330 (while 5130v and 7490v are on and well audible). However, on and detectable at next check UT Friday April 13 at 0053 during Brother Scare --- JBA S3, and very wobbly frequency. As I am measuring it about 9329.9 it abruptly jumps down to about 9329.65. Maybe backup transmitter finally getting this frequency back on air after several days` silence whenever checked. Next WORs:
Fri 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Sat 0629 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW [suspended until April 28]
Sat 1431 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW [suspended until April 28]

** U S A. 7490.05v, April 13 at 0107, WBCQ with Blalock the Blaster, Tourette Syndrome gospel huxter, instead of 0000 on 9330, a change made a few weeks ago, but still not on the program schedule, which continues to show `Full Gospel Hour` on 9330 every night at 00-01, and 7490 off the air after 0100 except UT Thursdays Hal Turner.

The 00-01 hour on 9330V was extended to Brother Scare who was already on 9330V most of the days and nights. Transmitter was off this week until weak wobbly resumption April 13 by 0053. But inaudible and/or off again at 0601 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, April 13 at 0553, again tonight, WRMI active on this unacknowledged frequency with `Oldies`, very poor, but better than 9395 & 9455. However, at 0559, 9455 has surged up for definite ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, April 13 at 0558 check, WRNO gospel huxter in English only, S9-S5, so not all the extended time 0400-1300 is in Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, April 12 at 1943 check, NO signal from WTWW-1. I think the #1 transmitter needs some new parts, explaining why the #2 unit is sometimes heard on this #1 frequency.

5085, April 13 at 0101, Ted pushing ham product, and his plus/minus 12.9 kHz spurs from WTWW-2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1521.0, April 13 at 0125, definite +1 kHz het upon KOKC OKC 1520, just like old times when it was surely from the 2-megawatt Duba, Saudi Arabia transmitter running all night. Several months ago it stopped AN, off before sunset here, but suspect it is back, as can`t imagine this would be anything else. ZNS 1540 Bahamas had put spur circa 1521 but nothing to match now circa 1559. Nor any other lower-powered TA signals in cursory check of 1575 and major channels below 800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055, April 13 at 0547, JBA carrier. Seems a bit early for 4KZ, Australia, so maybe the Cuban leapfrog of 5025 over 5040 another 15 kHz higher; however, no reverse match audible on 5010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
