** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Oct 15 at 0003, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY is mighty weak this week, very poor, less than the S8 nearby lightning crashes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15520 // 17855, Sunday Oct 15 at 1404, REE is good with SBG, 17715 poor, and 21620 detectable JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 11518, Oct 15 at 1319, JBA carrier with flutter, presumed Voice of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN on signature split frequency. Today`s NDXC/Aoki agrees: 11518 is in use only at 1315-1330 in Chinese, 100 kW, 95 degrees from Dushanbe-Yangiyul (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 14 at 2118, WJHR is on and in with good signal, always the same gospel huxter preaching. Had not been able to hear it for some weeks, usually checking around alleged *1402, so has it been off or just not propagating? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: confirmed Saturday Oct 14 at 2130 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, fair. (Tuned in earlier so caught *2125:30 with The Planet ID and IS loop; tuned in later to measure: 9330.14v-CUSB at 0009 during Blalock the Blaster.) Also confirmed Sat Oct 14 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, poor. Next airing at 0200 UT Sunday Oct 15 on 11580: JBA carrier, too weak to confirm. Confirmed UT Sunday Oct 15 at 0337 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, S9+30, about 26 minutes in so started circa 0311. Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW [NEW time; or maybe #1900]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Oct 15 at 1322, Republic of Yemen Radio is S9=S5 with flutter, but better than most signals except Cuba on 25m, as numerous FE frequencies are really weak today. Drumming and chanting, 1326 militant talk and music; presumably from SAUDI ARABIA, and now arriving by relatively low-latitude longpath? Sunset in Sana`a is currently 1443 UT, in case they should pause for Qur`anic vespers any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1523 UT October 15

** CUBA. 5025, Oct 14 at 0627, R. Rebelde is S9+30 of dead air. Will they ever get their act together? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 7365, Oct 14 at 0620, R. Martà is playing one of my favorite tunes, ``Patricia`` by PÃrez Prado, which I haven`t heard in a LONG time. Unfortunately, DJs start talking over before it`s finished, more QRM than the jamming. It was #1 in 1958y and thus belongs to pre-revolutionary Cuba. Also something about 2018y being the 325th anniversary of Habana. Here`s the first version of ``Patricia`` I found, which is considerably different than the hit:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0A6KCLO_54
And while we`re at it, another of his greatest hits, ``Mambo #5``:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKuvJ7zG9LI
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. 17840, Sat Oct 14 at 1342, VP carrier where normally there is nothing. HFCC reveals it`s DW, 500 kW, 65 degrees from ASCENSION at 1325-1530 Saturdays only during these datespans only: Aug 18-26, Sept 9-20, Oct 14-28. Must be some stupid ballgames the Germans think the Hausans will be keen to hear. Searching on odd time 1325, I find the other frequency: 15195 Issoudun (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Oct 14 at 0557, R. Truth is S9 to S9+10 and now modulating OK, English sign-off with address, to return at 5 am GT, 11 UT. Modulation may have been fixed already last night when I did not check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Oct 14 at 1220 UT a few minutes before sunrise here at 1238, low-band XEs from the north/west are in well on 550, 610, 640, 650, 660, 700, 710, 720, 730, 760, 770, 800, 870 â same stations I have logged many times before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [and non]. 5850 // 5890 // 7570 // 7780, Oct 14 at 0623, Brother Scare via WRMI, WWCR, WRMI and WRMI, with standard ID and plea for reception reports; also on 5980 WWCR mixture with jamming. God forbid I should listen to him much, but can`t say I have ever heard what is referred to in this news via Mike Cooper:

AUTHORITIES INVESTIGATING COLLETON CO. PASTOR OVER VIDEO TAKEN IN CHURCH 2017-10-11 By Harve Jacobs, Reporter
http://www.live5news.com/story/36575210/authorities-investigating-colleton-co-pastor-over-video-taken-in-church

Which DXLD yg members have already read in full. Kai Ludwig replies:

``The video in question:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odpwJv0LGhM

[9+ minutes; various women from the congregation come forward to be embraced by BS; the very first one has her breast grabbed, and again at 8+ minutes. There is no sound except by the exposer --- gh]

When randomly checking the radio broadcasts I often heard recordings of these gatherings, apparently used rather extensively, besides the studio monologues. So it's in theory possible that Stair even brought audio of these disgusting appearances on air himself.

quoting and linking to another account of an incident in the very studio from which stations like WRMI, WWCR, WWRB and WBCQ get a very substantial amount of the programming they air. Kai`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15520, Sat Oct 14 at 1345, REE open carrier already, S9 to S6; by 1355 the IS is playing now // 17855 also VG, but NO signal this time on 17715, while 21620 bears a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: since WOR did not appear at the new time still shown on WRMI skedgrid, Thursday 2230 on 5850, but instead the ``Friday`` program `Yeshua`, I check again Friday October 13 at the same time, in case they have been swapped? No, there is `Yeshua` again. No reply from Jeff White about what is really intended, so we can only hope that WOR will show up next Thursday.

WOR 1899 confirmed Fri Oct 13 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.02v-CUSB, fair.

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria reports:
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR 6190-CUSB on Oct 14:

0629-0658 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, fair/good``

NOT confirmed Sat Oct 14 at 1440 the 1431 via UTwente on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB: only music, no doubt CRI Sinhala southward from East Turkistan, yet as usual dominating the channel even in western Europe. Next:

** U S A. (7490), Oct 14 from 0003, I listen to a bit on WBCQ webcast of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`. Says is also on 5130, but not yet 3265 (ex-3250), as Timtron has not ground a new crystal yet and is currently at home in Skowhegan. AW will have to meet him around Bangor to pick it up. John Carver`s fuller report on this episode will appear in due course in DXLD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17600-18200 approx., Oct 13 at 2005, strange noise field all across this range. Seems to peak at 17775 KVOH, the strongest signal on band by far. This should make a very interesting spectrum display on an SDR! The swishy noise is undulating, rising and falling at the rate of about 48 times per minute. It also peaks and falls as one scans the band, somewhat like CRT TVs used to do with horizontal scanning at 15.75 kHz intervals, but I can`t determine the separation now; too fuzzy.

This is the Thu/Fri extended broadcast which on Fridays is in English after 1900: now talking about Columbine 1999.

I can also hear the noise underneath the modulation on 17775 itself, and its huge signal of S9+40 peaks is also regularly fluxuating on the meter down to S9+20, which can hardly be attributed to propagation in this circumstance. I also hear the noise interfering with Spain on 17855, itself a very good signal. The 17775 carrier is also wobbling, as usually the case.

Everything points to KVOH as the source of this, but I want to be absolutely fair to them; after all, John Tayloe once accused me of ``making things up``, a tremendous insult to this journalist. Possibly it`s some external source, even a local device which I always have to consider.

Nominal sign-off is 2100, so just before that I`m back with two receivers: PL-880 on 17775, which hardly needs antenna extended to hear it; and NRD-545 on, pick a frequency, 17730, where the noise is clearly audible. At 2059:42* they both go off at exactly the same instant!

So now I am 100% (make that 1000%) certain that KVOH is the source of all this crap, a menace to the entire 16m band, and beyond! It`s beyond me how and why they can keep this POS transmitter on the air.

Note: I am not grinding an ax against KVOH in particular, despite their having canceled WORLD OF RADIO. But had they kept me on board and welcomed my input as an advisor, they might not have to read about their own problems first on a public forum. Like far too many other SW stations, they are self-destructive, and I am merely verifying and reporting the true situation.

One mitigating factor for KVOH: they have resisted the advances of Brother Stair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1010, Oct 14 at 1235 UT, Catholic talk in Spanish, into mass in English with voice-overs, just like // 5810 WEWN, but not synch, i.e. KTNZ Amarillo TX as we now know in its born-again format (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1030, Oct 14 at 0605 UT, open carrier overcomes most of the CCI when aiming N/S. Again strongly suspect it`s 50 kW ND daytimer KCTA Corpus Christi. WWJD? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055-USB, Oct 14 at 1241, 2-way in Spanish, voices raised as if they have a hard time hearing each other, mentioning ``MazatlÃn`` and ``305`` repeatedly; drug deals? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA [and non]. 5935.0, Oct 12 at 2344, JBA carrier, and still at 2356 before WWCR blasts on, and not on 5936 as some reports have it as announced(?), presumed R. Yura. Much weaker than Brasil on 5939.8 with enough signal to hear some Brazuguese. And nothing in between.

This on the NRD-545, after first checking the R75 at 2334, when I was instead hearing a JBA carrier on 5936.306: but I must conclude this one was out of a local device, as this receiver is closer to them, such as VCRs, cable TV boxes, set-top boxes, computers, etc., whether they are turned ``on`` or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 7470, Oct 13 at 1315, Firedragon musical jamming, poor S9 with flutter. Don`t hear a target. NDXC/Aoki shows the only 7470 victim is RFA Tibetan via Kuwait at 2200-2257 Tuesdays only, yet there is ``CNR1`` jamming on 7470 daily at 1100-1400 against nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9420, Oct 13 at 1322, non-Greek music, heavy flutter. NDXC/Aoki shows two at same time: CNR-13 at 1058-1805, Uyghur, 100 kW, 298 degrees from Lingshi 725 site; AND CNR-6 at 1100-1605, Chinese, 100 kW, 163 degrees from Beijing 491 site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 11930, Oct 12 at 2349, gospel huxter in Spanish --- can it be R. Martà or something else new following on frequency? Way atop wall-of-noise jamming. Also heavy jamming on 6030, 7365, 7435, 9565 altho RM can be using only two frequencies at once! ``Sermon`` soon ends as it was apparently merely a poetic recitation on a religious theme from the Concurso Internacional de PoesÃa, in(?) Catalunya; R. Martà ID in passing; a live(?) special transmission from a venue at Universidad de Miami, hosts continue chatting as `Star Spangled Banner` starts playing in background, letra en inglÃs, by amateur choir, and off-key piano accompaniment.

Occasion is `El DÃa de la Raza`, i.e. when ColÃn started massacring natives, and also the day Cubans, gusanos or not, celebrate patron saint ``Virgen de la Caridad``, but never mind if they`re not Roman Catholic. 2352 followed by Cuban NA, a very different version than heard on RHC, again amateur choir and off-key piano. Can`t tell, but I wonder if the pre- and post-revolutionary Cubans utter the same lyrix to it? Finally I can barely tell under jamming that the other RM frequency still running is 9565. Those taking over at 0000 are 7365 and 6030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CZECHIA [non]. 5850, Oct 12 at 2354, R. Prague via WRMI, unusually with humbuzz on the audio, talking about Esperanto, but really about the ``dream of a pan-Slavic language``, so everyone from Czex to Russkies could understand each other better. Esperanto really doesn`t cut it, altho with some Slavic elements, too much Romance. Tsk2, Zamenhof the Pole (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Oct 12 at 2330, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, until autocutoff at 2331:47*, which is 48.5 seconds later than last catch a week ago, Oct 5 until 2330:58.5, slippage averaging 6.9 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. I was rather taken aback by Laura Trevelyan`s assertion on BBC World News America, 2100 UT Oct 12 airing via OETA OKLA, that the entire city of Santa Rosa, California, had burned down. Certainly it`s devastated, but *all* of it, really? (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7457-USB, Oct 13 at 1315, AF MARS net, headed by AFS4NC, much stronger than any stations replying, as he called Florida, then Alabama. NC probably implies he`s in North Carolina. Searching on call only leads to top hit here of several logs of this also on 7457 and also around this hour, by someone in Maryland, but no info about name or location:

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: NOT confirmed Thursday Oct 12 at 2230 on WRMI 5850, as displayed on their program schedule: instead, ``Shalom`` and introducing the `Yeshua` show (must be one of those Messianic ``Christian Jew`` things) which is supposed to be on Friday at same time; a mistake? So will WOR appear on Fri at 2230, or Yeshua again? Only monitoring will tell. Perhaps the WOR file did not get uploaded to System H for this block.

WOR 1899 is confirmed Thu Oct 12 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.043v-CUSB, poor-fair. Next:

** U S A. 9955, Oct 12 at 2030, WRMI-4 reconfirmed today back to BS, no diverse programming here any more.

7780 // 9395 // 9455, Oct 13 at 1307, WRMIs with survivalist ad, 1309 resume `The Power Hour`, and also on 13845 WWCR which is 23 seconds ahead. At 1400 re-opening TPH on all four, from GCN network, and still at 1428; so yesterday`s Oldies music on the three WRMIs was an anomaly, perhaps default due to lost feed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 990, Oct 13 at 1251 UT, ad mentioning phones with ACs 785 and 846, loops ENE/WSW?, then ad for ``your hometown bank, Bank of Aurora``. Those clues should nail it, but there is no 846, and AC 785 is northern Kansas, where 990 is KRSL Russell, but no such bank there, and it`s to the north. DF and proximity lead to very likely KRMO Cassville MO, address in Monett, and also near Aurora in southwest MO; 2500/47 watts U1. Trouble is, I can`t find a bank by that exact name, e.g. consulting

** U S A. 1510, Oct 13 at 1259 UT, PSA for Puerto Rico aid, dead air hole instead of ID from 10 seconds just before 1300 UT, and into ESPN Radio with `Mike & Mike`; loops NE/SW, surely KCTE Independence MO, despite failure to legally ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM. 7906-USB, Oct 13 at 1312, very poor YL in Vietnamese? Presumed Ho Chi Minh Radio Coast Station, as reported periodically by Ron Howard, last time being July 30 at *1305-1310*, so would it still be on at 1312, or turned over to a sibling station? His previous report was May 5 at *1305-1311*, and before that Jan 31 at *1305-1310*, always starting and ending with tones, which I did not hear; could not remember the always // frequency but tuned the 8200-8300 range without finding it; 8294-USB per Ron, who also says, ``Ho Chi Minh Radio is the most powerful coastal station, so is usually well heard. Operated by VISHIPEL (Vietnam Maritime Communications and Electronics LLC``. IIRC this also used to be heard in English, maybe only for urgent safety news (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9494.0-USB, Oct 13 at 1325, INTRUDERS, 2-way in colloquial Spanish, laughter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Oct 12 at 0554, R. Truth, S9 signal but JBM, enough to perceive that it`s an hymn in English as usual during the final hour. Listen for normal modulation level to be restored shortly by visiting engineer Ralph Borthwick, who has also assisted other missionary stations in Perà (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES [non]. 11630, Oct 11 at 1427, open carrier at S3-S6, 1430 trumpet IS and music, 1431 sign-on in S Asian language, mentioning several MHz and meter-bands, and a website ending in asia.org. HFCC shows it`s R. Veritas Asia, 250 kW, 98 degrees via VATICAN, 1430-1457 in Urdu. Apparently RVA relies on better signal into Pakistan/Gulf this way than direct from Palauig (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: Not confirmed at the new time of Wed 2030 on WRMI 9955, instead back to BS on October 11. Apparently the hour carved out of BS 20-21 UT as I have been monitoring on 9955, but never published on skedgrid, has been deleted: no more R. Prague English at 2000, and no more variety including DX programs at 2030. This WOR broadcast was first monitored Sept 27 but may have started Sept 20.

WOR 1899 confirmed Wed Oct 11 at 2100 on WBCQ, 7490, fair. Also confirmed Wed Oct 11 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.00-CUSB, very poor. Next:

** U S A. 9955, Thu Oct 12 at 1345, WRMI finally with a new edition of `Viva Miami`, and since it`s in Spanish should be called ``Long Live Miami``? Jeff and ThaÃs are conversing about their visit to Cape Town, South Africa, for HFCC in August (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Oct 12 at 0544, WRMI just ending VOA news relay, back to Oldies; S9+20 and S9+10 respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455 // 9395 // 7780, Thu Oct 12 at 1427, surprised to find WRMI back to Oldies tunes instead of `The Power Hour`. WRMI skedgrid http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
altho ``updated Sept 28`` still shows `The Power Hour` at 13-15 UT on 7780, 9395, and 14-15 on 9455 (which were of course M-F only).

Then I check WWCR: no signal audible on 13845 altho there is a very poor one on 15825, so suspect 13845 is off the air. Huge signal on 7490 now at 1434 Oct 12 sounds like Power Hour, pushing gold & silver, especially in view of what is happening with the Girl Scouts (??? Boy Scouts co-opting them?). But WWCR pdf sked now dated October 1:
7490, M-F 9-10 am still misconverted as 15-16 UT:
``Power Talks w/ Beth & Melody in the Morning``
Power Talk was mentioned at 1448.

So it`s one of the Cedarstrom shows, not TPH. This means that TPH is not heard on any frequency at this hour. WWCR still shows `Power Hour`, Central time:
7490, M-F 7- 8 am, still misconverted as 13-14 UT;
13845, M-F 7-10 am, still misconverted as 13-16 UT [but no signal]

What`s really happening earlier on WRMI as above remains to be checked.

`Power Talks` and `Financial Survival` and any other show sponsored by gold & silver pushers to the gullible, Answer me this: if G&S are such an essential investment vs the imminent apocalypse, or at least government takeover of everything, why aren`t those who have such coins hoarding them, instead of trying to sell them in virtual transaxions, or at best, for worthless paper money? Or maybe sax & sax of cupro/nickel/zinc coins? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Oct 12 at 1420, NO signal at all from KVOH, not even on 17775.115v where heard yesterday. Maybe off for repairs following my reports? Or just not propagating. Cuba is making it on 17730, and weak Saudis on 17895, 17705, 17615, but those are to the east. K-index 5 at 1500 after G1 storms.

17775.019, Oct 12 at 1607 recheck, now it`s on and blasting in at S9+20/30, only 19 Hz off-frequency, wobbling slightly, overmodulated distortion discussing marijuana en las escuelas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Oct 12 at 1439, WTWW-1 is still on with PPPP instead of day frequency 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15454.88, Oct 12 at 1422, JBA carrier, much weaker than Biblis 5 kHz lower, which I measured Sept 26 at 15449.884. I`m still hearing it too with stronger signal, and the strange thing is, the higher one is at exactly the same offset/pitch with BFO step tuning to 15454.00, as to 15449.00. EiBi, NDXC/Aoki and HFCC all list nothing at all at this time on ``15455``. BTW, HFCC A-17 has not been updated since Sept 27; presumably concentrating on B-17 planning instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4865, Oct 11 at 1119, JBA carrier; nothing from Asia here, and the S American closest to the terminator is R. Verdes Florestas, Cruzeiro do Sul, Acre in the far west, where sunrise was 1030 UT per:
https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/brazil/cruzeiro-do-sul
(gaisma.com excludes CdS from its long roster of Brazilian cities!)
(and the other ZY nominal 4865, faraway R. Alvorada de Londrina habitually varies around 4862) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Oct 11 at 1121, R. Verdad has S9 signal, and less noise, so that I can detect that an hymn is undermodulatedly playing. Just before my last log report went out, this reply came in dated 0444 UT Oct 11:

``Gracias, Glenn, por su reporte. Ciertamente, estoy transmitiendo con el transmisor original, con 850 watts de potencia, pero hay un problema en la tarjeta de audio que no permite mayor volumen. El dÃa de maÃana vendrà el Ingeniero Ralph Borthwick de Canadà a reparar los daÃos en la tarjeta de audio. Creo que en esta semana saldremos al aire en forma normal, Dios mediante. Otra vez, gracias por su reporte. Ãdgar Madrid Radio Verdad``

It`s fortunate that Ralph is available to fly in and help, but strange there is no one in Guatemala to do it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KYRGYZSTAN. 4010.221, Oct 11 at 1124, JBA carrier vs MARS on 4011-USB, surely Bishkek on characteristic off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 760, Oct 11 at 1154, loops SSW, OEM promo, feature on progress in mamografÃa from UNAM called ``RadiÃsfera``. 1200 song, ID missed if any while checking other frequencies, 1201 M&W in morning show with national weather summary. Based on direxion and format, most likely XEABC, 70/10 kW in Los Reyes de la Paz, Estado de MÃxico.

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Oct 11 at 1119, no signal from SIBC which normally runs until 1157* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4027-USB, Wed Oct 11 at 1123, MARS net discussing decodifying, abbr`d calls as AL, WX or 4WX, AQG.

4011-USB, Oct 11 at 1124, another MARS net. May we assume these are in the UT-4 zone, after 7 am local, or early risers in the UT-5 zone after 6 am? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775.115v, Oct 11 at 1407, KVOH in Spanish is way off-frequency today and VP S3, too weak to evaluate modulation quality or hear splatter. Frequency is wavering slightly. Remeasured at 1451 I get 17775.113v, within margins of error so make it 17775.114v. Standard remarx (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UZBEKISTAN. 12160, Oct 11 at 1455, very poor Asian language vs CODAR. It`s TWR India, 100 kW, 131 degrees from Tashkent, 1445-1545 M-F in Punjabi. Per NDXC/Aoki, transmission in various lesser languages starts at 1345 and ends at 1430 Sat & Sun (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGSET)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Oct 11 at 1144-1149 UT: 774-WSW, 657-WSW, 612-WSW, 882-NW, 1098-W (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4050-USB, Oct 11 at 1122, 2-way in colloquial Spanish I can`t help but notice when checking 4055 GUATEMALA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10036.60-USB, Oct 11 at 1141, 2-way in tonal Asian language; may we assume it`s aeronautical? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15673.40-USB, Oct 11 at 1405, 2-way INTRUDERS in colloquial Spanish about pescados and puta-madres (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
