** CUBA. 6165, April 12 at 0428, RHC still back on old frequency, ex-6180, so apparently a deliberate reversion, and applicable before 0500. It`s just barely modulated, so what difference does it make? Recheck at 0615: 6165 S9/S9+10 and JBM; 6100 S8-S4 also JBM; 6060 S9/S9+10 with sufficient mod; 6000 S9+10/20 and suff. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, April 12 at 1358, RHC with clix, or rather intermittent carrier dropouts, weaker than // 13700 without dropouts. At 1400, 13740 goes to dead air, when the transition to CRI English relay is supposed to occur; no dropouts so transmitter change apparently succeeded; but cuts off the air at 1402:35*. *1404:25 cuts on with RHC music, undermodulated, not CRI English! It`s `Sonido Cubano`, good show of songs seemingly non-propagandistic respite, so I keep listening to detect when, if ever, CRI English come up.

13740, 1431:40, smooth transition from `Sonido` to CRI English just as `Roundtable` is starting, rather inane chat show. Transmission break at 1432:55*-*1433:15, as I quit listening.

9570, meanwhile, the CRI English relay supposed to end at 1400, is still going at 1408, S9-S6 and undermodulated with squeals on the sidebands; off by 1418. Somethings` always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7415, April 12 at 0620, S8-S9+10 talk in African language about Boku Haram. At 06-07 only, this is supposed to be R. Ndarason International, via ASCENSION, per NDXC/Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1925 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday April 11 at 2100 on WBCQ, 7490.05v, S7-S9. Should be at same time on WRMI 9955, but NOT on the air! Has come up at 2104 with WOR in progress and not synchronized with weaker WBCQ. Such are the risks of being the very first program on any given transmission. NOT confirmed Wed Apr 11 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, still off the air completely. Next, maybe:
Thu 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, Wed Apr 11 at 2100, WRMI with something in German! Could it be RAE? No, just a brief announcement in the otherwise English FG Radio, which has another travelogue episode, about England. At least this frequency is on the air, unlike 9955 not yet for WORLD OF RADIO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, April 12 at 0618, ``I Don`t Get No â Satisfaxion`` song is playing, hardly to be expected from the Radio Dandal Kura or Ethiopia! O, RDK is now supposed to be on 11910 via France. 0622, WRMI ID by Bob Biermann, claiming to be on 9395 only --- what does he know? So the Oldies service has shown up on this new frequency which is supposed to be off the air between 0200 and 1100! It`s S6-S7 as always weak here, aimed southward, but at this hour better than very poor 9395 & 9455 which are supposedly still Oldies. 5/6/7 MHz band is certainly needed if overnight broadcasts from Okee are to be audible with minimal MUFs. Will this show up on sked, or just an experiment or error? Not yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, April 12 at 1404, WTWW is still going with PPPP on night frequency, but cut off at 1406*. Day frequency 9475 still has not cut on by 1418 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALASKA [and non]. 6045, April 11 at 1222, KNLS English with heavy QRM from V. of Freedom, KOREA SOUTH, ex-5917.4v. At least one of them playing music. This single KNLS English hour has a second frequency:

7355, April 11 at 1223, moderate Cuban jamming against no Martà ever anymore, blocking weak carrier from presumed KNLS in English. Tnx a lot, Arnie! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910.354V, April 11 at 0631, AlcaravÃn Radio is back after absence several nights, now good S9-S7 with peppy troppy music not suitable for the nightmiddle. No sign of the other HJDH, La Voz de tu Conciencia, circa 6010v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, April 11 at 0635, guess what: RHC English back on here ex-6180 after three days. Maybe Arnie got our message about all the collisions on 6180; or maybe it`s a mistake, old habits dying hard by the RadioCuba sloppyrators. 6180 still shows on an ``updated`` sked via Wolfgang BÃschel today. Remains // 6000, 6100, about equally undermodulated, and 6060 more modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9535, April 11 at 1102, RHC is good already, just opening `Despertar con Cuba` with BÃrbara Betancourt for the next trihour. 7340 is JBA; 6100, 6060 and 6000 are good. Nothing audible on 11 or 13 MHz bands this early (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, April 11 at 1358, RHC Spanish, seems under S9+30 open carrier prior to CRI English relay via a different transmitter. Another transmitter with CRI on 9570 is not off quite yet. Better coordinated today on 13740: at 1400 RHC stops and CRI opening English news in the clear.

13700 is not off today for RHC, at 1400 starting 48 minutes of `Sonido Cubano`, ``mÃsica cubana de todos los tiempos``, first song titled ``Amor Prohibido``. 13670, yet another RHC transmitter at 1402 still on with S9+20 of dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7435, April 11 at 1227, jamming against no Martà anymore, instead blocking CRI in Chinese, eastward from Beijing site; Commies vs Commies! Also 7355 jamming against ALASKA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 5917.4v, April 11 at 1222, no signal from Voice of Freedom, since per Ron Howard, on April 10 it moved back to 6045.0.

6045, April 11 at 1222, at least two signals making fast SAH, music from one of them, i.e. Voice of Freedom colliding with KNLS ALASKA, q.v. Now will this VOF start drifting downward like 5920 did? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 550, April 11 at 1151, ``Amanecer Ranchero de la Super-EstaciÃn``, i.e. XEPL, Ciudad CuauhtÃmoc, Chihuahua (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 570, April 11 at 1126, ``BJB, mÃsica regional mexicana``, repeated, i.e. XEBJB, Monterrey NL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 610, April 11 at 1149, different music than 650, but at 1200, XEGS Guasave, Sinaloa, joins 650 for `Noticiero Altavoz`, and the pair are synchronized. 650 always with a bigger signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 650, April 11 at 1149, neat singing ID as ``Somos Grupo ChÃvez``, ``y Noticiero Altavoz``, UT -6 TC, but not yet, more music. News starts at 1200, from XETNT, Los Mochis, Sinaloa when sibling station XEGS 610 joins in (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 790-, April 11 at 1129, Radio FÃrmula ID in passing, makes rumbling het vs lots of CCI, primarily 790.0 KURM Rogers, Arkansas. From SW, presumed XENT, La Paz, BCS. John Wilkins, CO, reported to NRC IDXD, ``Tough copy and no ID but XENT has been on this off-frequency for years``, 789.96, which was his measurement, not mine, but I do not dispute it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 800-, April 11 at 1130, ad for Laboratorios Camacho en Fresno, California, 800#, presumably a medicine mill; full ID as ``800 AM, --- internacional, Radio CaÃÃn, (street address), Ciudad JuÃrez, Chihuahua, MÃxico, Grupo Siete!``. More plugs for Labs, 29:6 TC by autoYL, music. Nice to hear XEROK as often inaudible at night; near-local KQCV OKC nulled as much as possible, with which it makes a SAH of 104/minute on the low side = 1.73 Hz. Not long before KQCV takes over (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 830, April 11 at 1133, Spanish dominating from SSW, while WCCO is JBA to zero in auroral conditions (670 WSCR Chicago is also JBA to zero); 1134 mis-time-check thrice as 6:32 (UT -5 CDT zone), and 1135 UT as 6:33; 1137 WCCO gaining a little; 1143 I make sure the SS is NOT from SSE which would be Louisiana. At 1146 it`s alone with ID in passing as ``La Caliente`` which is XELN, Linares, Nuevo LeÃn. That town is closer to due S from here than SSW; SE of Monterrey on the railroad to Ciudad Victoria, intersecting Rio Conchos, near the Tamaulipas state line (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 5875, April 11 at 0628, African song, poor S3-S5. HFCC shows it`s BBC French, 27 degrees from ASCENSION. 0629 horns and African language, now converted to Hausa from same (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1925 monitoring: unfortunately awake Wed April 11 at 1051, I try 9455 WRMI where WOR is supposed to be getting its first SW airing this week at 1030: straining, only detect a JJBA carrier, and by 1058 still not enough signal to recognize if it`s I. Nothing at all audible on any other WRMI frequency including 9955. 31 mb is just about dead, EXCEPT: 9805, wall-of-noise S9+10 Cuban jamming against inaudible MartÃ; if Cuba is propagating, why not neighbor Okeechobee?

No change in 9455 after 1100, but now 9955 is on and JBA S1-S2 with RAE in Portuguese. (NOT at 1200 any more, as RAE was quoted by Communication of the British DX Club); by 1145 recheck, both 9955 and // 9455 have built up to respectable signals, S8 on 9455. So was 9455 really on but not propagating before 1100?? But I digress; better luck, next WORs:
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 7505v, April 11 at 0626, very poor signal, in Chinese? WRNO still on at 1228, now S9+30 praise music in Chinese, somewhat distorted modulation and occasional bursts of noise or over-modulation; 1231 YL Chinese talk. Is the entire expanded overnight transmission in Chinese, 0300-1300? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, April 11 at 1056, WTWW is on at S9+30 of C&W music, Ted announcement as ``from a casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, at an ungodly hour``; why? Why not? Is gambling OK with passed-away Pastor Pete Peters whose heirs own this thing? Also with the weak parasitic spurs circa 5072.1 and 5097.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, April 11 at 1115-1123: 774(2)-NW & WSW, 756-WSW, 702(2)-WSW, 675-WSW, 612-WSW, 603-WSW, 594(2)-WSW & NW, 585-WSW; 828-NW, 846-WSW, 882-WSW; 1098-W (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860, April 9 at 2247, RHC Spanish on new frequency, tough luck Saudi/Yemen. Also on 11830, 11840, 11850 (two of them spurs), and Portuguese on 11880, Cuba plentiful within 50 kHz! Until now 11860 RHC was just a JBA second-order spur out of 11840. Now it`s full power, intentionally scheduled to Europe at 1930-2300 in French, Portuguese, Arabic and Spanish; but 11860 still on at 2338 S9+10 with JBM music, // 11840 which is now suptorted; wiggle that patchcord!

11880, which was on earlier, April 9 at 2338 is now off instead of English as confirmed the day before and the day after.

7330, April 9 at 2342, new for RHC Spanish, despite adjacency to 7335 jamming and Radio MartÃ, best tuned with LSB. How long will Arnie keep this and 7340 in the mornings? Normally stays at least 10 away from his jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, April 10 at 1400, CRI English relay, but ALSO RHC in Spanish making fast SAH --- so two separate transmitters, for RHC until 1400 and China after 1400. Roughly equal levels, but more modulation in Spanish. Collision lasts until about 1405, RHC off by 1406; something`s always incompetent at RadioCuba. Commies vs Commies, Cubans vs Cubans.

What else is happening after 1400?
13700 (ex-15370) is not on yet at 1401, supposed to start at 1300.
7340 is S9-S6 but undermodulated, sked until 1500, after Martà -1400.
6060 is still on at 1404, supposed to stop at 1400.
6100 is still on at 1405, with Asian CCI, supposed to stop at 1300.

12000, April 9 at 2210, no signal, new frequency scheduled 2100-0400.
11860, April 9 at 2210, now with het from 11856v Aparecida, Brasil; RHC off by 2330 today unlike yesterday
11700, April 9 at 2210, poor signal, new in Portuguese, plus 23-05 in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1925, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, April 9 at 1846, Denge Welat with Kurdish talk, interspersed with stingers, S5-S8; via FRANCE until 1900, then switches to Pridnestrovye. No more Herwa in the way at 1930-2000, 11530 canceled by WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, April 9 at 1842, no signal from MWV English hour, which normally is loud and clear here on the other worldside; off the air, or very depressed propagation? WWV reported at 1800 K index of 2, no storms yet, but G1 expected in next 24 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9330v-CUSB, April 9 at 2340, no signal from WBCQ for WOR 1924 at 2330; 5130v and 7490v are on and in OK. WOR 1924 confirmed April 10 at 0030 UT Tuesday on WRMI 7730, S9+20/30. Also confirmed Tuesday April 10 at 2030 & 2130 both on fair 9455, and poor in noise 7780. Again Tue Apr 10 at 2330, no signal from 9330 WBCQ (nor any earlier in the day at random chex).

WORLD OF RADIO 1925 contents: Albania non, Algeria non, Australia, Bolivia, Brasil, Congo and non, Cuba, Egypt, India, International Waters and non, Korea South, Kurdistan non, Mali, Mongolia, New Zealand, Nigeria non, Oklahoma, Romania, Taiwan non, Turkey, Ukraine, USA; and the propagation outlook

** U S A. 9955 // < 9455, Tue April 10 at 1335, WRMI with a `new` `Viva Miami`, Jeff monolog in English instead of Spanish about HFCC in Malaysia three months ago, cuisine, resorts, extracurricular activities (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9487.9 & 9462.1, April 9 at 1850, plus and minus ~12.9 kHz parasitic spurs out of 9475.0 WTWW, again implying that it`s the #2 transmitter which flanx the same around 5085 at night, is now in use on the #1 frequency in the daytime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1925, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, April 9 at 1808 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS is now completely off the air, not off the air for a few seconds at a time. But at 1858 recheck, now it`s on continuously, 1859 UT ID plugging their FM 100.3 which is a translator (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7465.6-LSB approx., April 10 at 0615, intermittent talk soon obvious as one side of a ham contact, but the SSB pitch is unsteady depending on modulation level. To try to keep him sounding normal, I`m having to keep tuning between 7465.5 and 7465.7 or so.

Suspected a harmonic from 80m band, and then hear what sounds like the same guy on 3733.0-LSB, but no chance to match on two receivers. Altho weaker than x 2, fundamental frequency is steady, modulation OK. Several interchanges with no IDs before I doze (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, April 9 at 0615, DGS is on again after missing several nights (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, April 8 at 1940 check, the first hour of RHC English at 19-20 remains on this frequency for A18. Next English broadcast at 23-24 no longer on 9720 but still on 5040 at 2303 check; quickly found reactivated replacement, 11880 which is VG S9+20/30.

As already found last night, new 6180 ex-6165 is going at 0215 April 9 check, S9+10 but JBM, // 6000 also JBM, and the JBA voice right now is Arnie.

Meanwhile, the RHC Correspondence Department has sent out the new A-18 schedule, which has now reached all members of the WOR io group, tnx to forward by Ken Zichi.

Full English sked, in typical disorder:
New York 6060 0500-0700
San Francisco 6100 0500-0700
Chicago 15140 1900-2000
6180 0100-0700
Washington 6000 0100-0500
0500-0700
Banda Tropical 5040 2300-0000
0500-0600
Africa 11880 2300-2400

6000 & 6180, April 9 at 0329 are both JBM; while 6060 Spanish is OK. Whether modulated or not, RHC 6180 between 01 and 05 is bad for neighboring Mexico`s only SW station, 6185 XEPPM. By 0613, DXUL is starting on undermodulated 6180, with SAH and CCI from VOA French via SÃo Tomà at 0530-0630 M-F; while after 0500, 6165 would have been clear. // 6000 is suptorted; wiggle that patchcord! And 6060 is OK except for the ZY off-frequency het. At 0616, 6100 is JBM with hum.

New 6180 means new spots for leapfrog mixing products to land: Mix with 6100 would put it another 80 kHz higher on 6260, but nothing heard, maybe from different sites. Mix of 6060 with 6180, another 120 kHz beyond at 6300 does produce a JBA carrier, probably this. Yet another to seek: 6000 over 6180 at 6360.

Now I pick out only the NEW Spanish and various languages frequencies:

7330 2100-0400 Spanish to Antillas
7340 1100-1500 Spanish to Antillas
11700 2200-2300 Portuguese to Buenos Aires [sic]
2300-0500 Spanish to Buenos Aires
11860 1930-2000 French to Europe
2000-2030 Portuguese to Europe
2030-2100 Arabic to Europe [sic]
2100-2300 Spanish to Europa
11880 2200-2230 French to Africa
2230-2300 Portuguese to Africa
12000 2100-0400 Spanish to Buenos Aires [not a pirate]
13700 1300-1500 Spanish to San Francisco
13740 1100-1400 Spanish to Buenos Aires

Way to go, Arnie, picking two 40 mb which are adjacent to your jamming and 7335 Radio MartÃ! But 7330 is NOT on at 0247 or 0325 April 9 chex.

7340, however, is on at 1246 April 9 check, fair signal but siderwhelmed, adjacent QRM from 7335 Martà and jamming. How long will this last? RHC would normally stay at least 10 kHz away from its jammers.

It`s notable that 15370 is gone in the mornings, which means its dozen filthy FM spurblobs across the 19mb are also gone, good riddance!! 22mb will now be subject to these, and it has happened at least once before at another daypart, now out of the 13700 or 13740 transmitter, but none yet.

6100, April 9 at 1256, RHC Spanish in bad mix with Chinese, i.e. CRI in Russian, Commies vs Commies! The latter off at 1257* leaving RHC until it goes off abruptly at 1257.6*; still on 6060 and 6000.

13700, April 9 at 1259, RHC open carrier, RaÃl speech continued from 49m cuts on and off; 13740 at 1300 with IS & ID, keeps modulating with frequency announcement, a prime time for full info about the QSYs; instead, YL only says that 11760 will be added at 1500 (it`s already on!), and 6100 is closing --- that`s it! Nothing about the 13s we are really listening to (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 5917.400, April 9 at 1251, music and Korean at S4-S6, as Voice of Freedom has drifted down to here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 15170, April 9 at 1409, VP S6-S4 tonal language, mention ``Jesus Christus``. It`s AWR in Sinhala this semihour only. Earlier AWR on 15170 is Guam; later via Germany (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 5850 & 7730, Monday April 9 at 0611, no signals yet from WRMI, despite 0600 time James Branum previously publicized for his `Broad Spectrum Radio`. Instead it`s still at 0700, after IS & ID loops as early as 0658. This edition is for the second week of April, about the Oklahoma teachers` walkout, but starts with music. Says this and all previous episodes are available on website, which are a bit more convenient than 2 in the Okie mornings, so I promptly go to sleep.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9515, April 9 at 0328, JBA carrier from presumed Voice of Turkey, English to North America. Maybe 6165 for Asia would have made it oppositely, now that RHC has evacuated that frequency? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1924 monitoring: confirmed Sunday April 8 at 2339 the 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, fair but somewhat weaker than 9265 WINB and 9395 WRMI. Also confirmed UT Monday April 9 from 0300 on Area 51 webcast; S9+10 at 0325 on WBCQ 5129.805. Also confirmed at 0330 UT Monday April 9 on WRMI 9955, S9 with slow deep fades to S6, much stronger than 9395 & 9455. The WRMI/RAE webcast-only is also again repeating WOR immediately at 0400 instead of Radio ZomBiafra. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1925?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1925?]

Full WOR sked on all outlets, podcast access:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 12050, April 8 at 1952, JBA carrier, much less than normal from WEWN Spanish, so is it off? Uncovering R. Ndarason International (ex-Dandal Kura?) via Ascension. Other WEWN, English on 15610 is very poor as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775.088, April 9 at 1405, I notice that KVOH VP carrier is now off to the plus side, so measure it thus (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6035, April 9 at 1254, S4-S7 music reminds me of the BaBcoCk IS, but surely not, rather PBS Yunnan, and 1256 Chinese? talk, rather than Bhutan. Aoki/NDXC shows Bhutan until 1200, Yunnan until 1300, but Ron Howard has observed wide variations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6280, April 9 at 0617, JBA trace of modulation as I am looking for RHC leapfrogs; Europirate here? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9500, April 9 at 0328, S9 carrier of dead air. Nothing listed in HFCC, except a 22-hpd CNR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1635 UT April 9
