Previous report subject should have read January 6, 2018, not 2017! So far I have found only one minor typo in body of that.

** BRAZIL. 9665.011, Jan 7 at 0616, Voz MissionÃria with music is almost on-frequency, while most of the other 31m ZYs remain offset as much as 1 kHz, from 9565, 9675, 9725, 9820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15580, 15510, 15440, 15300, 15230 and weaker 15160, 15090, 15020, 15650, Jan 7 at 1540, filthy distorted spurblobs out of 15370 RHC are now at close to 70 kHz intervals, which mean they land more directly upon channels occupied by real stations, including RHC`s own other 19m frequency, 15230! And 15580 VOA. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6150, UT Sun Jan 7 at 0149, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY is S9+15, no het or other QRM, which Kraig Krist had complained of. Song ``Never Know What You`re Missing``; then 0151, Kraig`s own Forgotten Song segment, about Dave Matthews who moved from RSA to Charlottesville VA, formed a band in April 1995, and had a #16 hit in May 2005, title missed due to fade, plays it, and no back-announce (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15390, Jan 7 at 1540, REE is still distorted on this frequency, altho the carrier is stable; weaker but clearer on // 15500. BTW, 15390 for B-17 was announced as for S America, altho in A-17 it had been for Mideast. In fact, current HFCC claims both are on 110 degrees, surely not really (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1860-AM, Jan 7 at 0215, WA0RCR is S9+20 with a hamified version of `Twas the Night Before Xmas` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3245-USB, Jan 7 at 0210, MARS net, poor signal with abbr`d calls 5R7 and 5XF in contact, discussing 126 vs 127 formats, whatever that mean. Another call mentioned is AA5OAO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1911 monitoring: UT Sunday January 7 at 0200, I strain to hear me on WRMI 11580, which for weeks has been fading out by this hour: opening theme is barely recognizable, S3 at band noise level. At 0223 slightly better, I can recognize my voice with ECSS help, but still unreadable. From next week, all 11580 programming replaced by 7780, which will certainly be an improvement at this hour, altho not the best for us, as aimed NE toward Europe rather than NW across this continent. Also confirmed UT Sun Jan 7 at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, at the item about XEPPM, 14 minutes into show, so started circa 0414.

Manuel MÃndez, Friol, Spain reports: ``9485, Hamburger LokalRadio, GÃhren, 1055-1159, 07-01 [Sunday], German, comments, ID "Hamburger LokalRadio", at 1100 English, "This is Hamburger LokalRadio", comments, at 1130 Glenn Hauserâs program "World of Radio". 25432``

** U S A. 7489.931v, UT Sun Jan 7 at 0117, WBCQ playing back an `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, always a handy choice to fill an hour. Seems like the one right after the transmitter fire, familiar comments, about how Angela cleaned up the building, Terry vacuumed for three solid days. AW had also, on an AWW, publicly shamed `Mitch & Kathy` for being six months behind in paying their bills, may not be on much longer, and this was their slot, UT Sun 01-02 as still shown on the schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Jan 7 at 0204, WTWW-2 with Ted`s ad block including for Heil products, ID as ``9930``, 0205 finally starts `Theater Organ in the Ozarx``, with Bob Heil. Says his voice is ailing, so more music, less talk, until 0237. Normally a huge blasting signal, now it`s *only* S9+10 fading to S8, and decreasing during the semi-hour. For once, this is not enough to audiblize the parasite carriers near 5072 and 5098.

5830, Jan 7 at 0611, WTWW-1 is off, while neighbor WWCR is strong on 5890 & 5935. Could be stuck on day frequency 9475, but if so, not propagating. 9475 is ops normal at 1644 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3185, Jan 7 at 0605, WWRB is off as it has been all evening, close to the end of BS on this station? Irregular operation, so one can never be sure: it could even be stuck on day frequency 9370 but if so, not propagating at all. 9370 is also off at 1644 Jan 7, when it would certainly be heard if on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1067 & 1093 peaks, Jan 7 at 0232 UT, IBOC noise is back out of 1080 KRLD. Mark Sills in Dallas had welcomed its absence during December. DXers hope that CBS disposing of stations to Entercom would also lead to the end of IBOC upon them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1120, Jan 7 at 0227 UT, KMOX interviewing conductor Leonard Slatkin about the classical music world, surprisingly. Show is `KMOX Profiles` at 01-03 UT Sundays, followed by the classic rock show deviating from news/talk, `Route 66 on KMOX with Johnny Rabbitt`, UT Sundays 03-07 per sked:
http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/kmox-programming-schedule/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6935-LSB, Jan 7 at 0140, good signal 2-way talk in Brazuguese, with a much weaker contact, I encounter instead of any N American pirates on this band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1717 UT January 7

** AUSTRALIA. 5055 > 5045, Jan 6 at 1357, two JBA carriers, no doubt remnants of the new low-power private stations, 4KZ and OzyRadio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. 15110, Sat Jan 6 from 1800, no signal from the new IPOB/R Biafra program in Hausa which per Jan 4 publicity was supposed to start today at 18-19 UT, a ``liberation radio service``; via Alan Pennington, BDXC-UK yg:

http://www.247nigerianewsupdate.co/2018/01/biafra-ipob-launches-hausa-radio-service.html

``This announcement was contained in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful.

It said the maiden daily broadcast will hit the airwaves on Saturday, the 6th of January, 2018 at 7PM Nigerian time on Short Wave 15110 KHz 19 Meter Band.

The statement reads: "In keeping with our promise to facilitate the creation of an unbiased informative platform to take the message of liberation to the down trodden and oppressed indigenous populations of Northern Nigeria, we the family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide and itâs indomitable leadership, wish to happily announce the official launch of the much anticipated IPOB sponsored Radio Nigeria Hausa Service.

"The broadcast will have the widest coverage of any radio signal in Africa. It will be received all over West, East and Southern Africa. Every Hausa speaking community in Africa will be able to receive it. In our opinion, we feel it has become imperative to educate the poor masses of Northern Nigeria. The ruling class cleverly enslaved and impoverished ethnic populations of the North by keeping vital information and knowledge away from them. This information deficit is what Radio Nigeria Hausa Service has come to remedy..

"All the hitherto hidden history of the conquest of indigenous Hausa speaking populations of the North will be laid bare for the world to know. More importantly, enslaved minorities of Arewa North, brutally savaged by Fulani terrorist herdsmen, through this unbiased platform, will acquire the necessary education needed to liberate them from the suffocating stranglehold of the caliphate born to rule class.

"What we hope to demonstrate through the launch of this liberation radio station is to prove beyond every conceivable doubt that IPOB is not a selfish movement concerned only about the well-being of Biafrans, but are also genuinely concerned about the plight of all oppressed people in Nigeria as stated by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on countless occasions. Regardless of ethnicity, religion or creed, IPOB is pursuing an agenda of freedom for all. Our message is very simple, 2018 will be like no other in the history of Nigeria and will prove to be the year of liberation for those brave enough to confront the evil that Nigeria has become in the lives of millions of people.

"Our quest for the total and adulterated [sic] liberation of Biafraland is unstoppable; this we shall demonstrate in the coming months. Those deluding themselves with the laughable and perverse notion that IPOB has been weakened because of the absence of our leader is in for an almighty shock. This move today is the beginning of a mass revolution against our oppressors that will spread outside the borders of Biafraland.

"The coming of this new and revolutionary Radio Nigeria Hausa Service will expose centuries old dark secrets through education of the oppressed Hausa Fulani youths that IPOB and Biafra mean well for them contrary to the lies being peddled by their corrupt leadership. We will not fail to let all Northern youths understand that their political leaders, elders and fathers like those in Biafraland are the real oppressors that over the years have kept them in the dark through a carefully crafted and systematic regime of misinformation and propagation of falsehood. Every Hausa speaking Northerner is advised to tune into 15110 KHz every night at 7PM, starting from this Saturday 6 January 2018, to be educated in order to be liberated."``

The above appears to be a verbatim quotation from here:

Underlying this logo is not a facebook, but a complicated blogspot. Clicking on it only enlarges the logo.

DXLD monitors in Europe, South Africa, and via remotes could not hear it either. Ivo Ivanov is sure that the site will be Bulgaria, whenever it may really start.

Meanwhile at 1802-1806 Jan 6, I survey what little is audible on the 19m band, starting with 15115-15120-15125 where V. of Nigeria DRM noise in English is only a poor signal. The 19m band is hardly open, just with these: 15390 Spain VP, weaker 15500 JBA; 15580 VOA VP; 15610 WEWN poor, 15825 WWCR poor. Very poor on 15490 BBC French via Ascension; best of the lot is 15420, S4-S8, R. Itahuka via Madagascar on Saturdays only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Re: ``9776-9782 & 9798-9804 approx., strong spur noise fields out of the superstrong 9790 CRI Cantonese relay, 250 kW at 305 degrees. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba``

Something`s wrong here as I just noticed the time and date were missing: 0440 UT Dec 30. And no one else noticed or told me before now
(Glenn Hauser, OK, Jan 6, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Jan 6 at 0056, S9+20 open carrier except for hum. What`s left of the `Mesa Redonda` hour from RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Jan 6 at 0628, R. Verdad carrier still on with S9 of dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 4920, Jan 6 at 1355, hum-roar at S4-S5, as already established yesterday by Ron Howard, Wolfgang BÃschel and the other Jim Young as the AIR Chennai/Madras transmitter very out of order, not Tibet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Jan 6 at 0053, pirate music at S9 vs S8 noise level, off at 0059 recheck. Unidentified, and no logs of this at HFUnderground (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, Jan 6 at 0119, unID pirate rock music somewhat distorted around S7-S8. This may refer to it:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,39675.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1210, Jan 6 at 0104 UT, KGYN Guymon is blasting in obviously on day pattern failing to protect Philadelphia, ``The Big Talker, 1210 KGYN``. I try nulling it and from right angle can hear a list of stations in the Rio Grande Valley, obviously the network including KUBR San Juan whose night pattern is supposed to have tight major lobe toward its west; and cardioid null toward WPHT in daytime (??), per NRC Pattern Book. I thought these might be reversed, but confirmed as such in FCC AM Query. In any event, we should not be getting so much signal from either station; together they make a heavy 160/minute SAH = 2.67 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960, UT Sat Jan 6 at 0057, TRT IS at S9+20. This means the entire extra hour in German must have stayed on the air from 0000 instead of turning off after English before 2400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3272-USB, Jan 6 at 0109, MARS net hosted by YL NCS, AAR7EH; ``nothing heard, net is free``, asking for relays. This document

Army/Air Force MARS 2016 Region V Fall Conference
Date: October 15, 2016
Location: Minneapolis Emergency Operations Training Facility
identifies her as ``Joanne "Jodie" Rouse / AAR7EH``

https://afmars-nc-mil.us/.../USAF_MARS_2016_Minnesota_Fall_Conference_Agenda_1.7_Final.docx

It seems there is no way to display the complete URL replacing the three dots, but it`s the top hit in a google search on her callsign (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1911 monitoring: not confirmed Saturday Jan 6 at 1531 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 6190-CUSB via UTwente SDR. Checked several times during the 15-16 hour, also for `Media Network Plus`, nothing heard but two stations mixing in unknown language, no doubt the two from China, and both are DSB, audible same with LSB tuning.

Not confirmed Sat Jan 6 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB, which continues to be inaudible, even at a time it was scheduled to be on. Confirmed Sat Jan 6 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, S9+20, and 7780 is now off after a 2-hour stint. From next week, 11580 programming is to be on 7780 instead.

(the 2300 broadcast was preceded at 2259 by that saxophone tune, and ID by Keith Perron. BTW, it appears that the ID I recorded for WRMI is gone along with the Wed 1415.5 WOR airing, as before that at 1415.0 was the only time I ever heard it.)

Next:
Sun 0200 WRMI 11580 to NE [7780 from next week]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 & 9455 & 9955, Jan 6 at 0033, immediately after dispatching last report, I check the dials and find a blackout on the 9 MHz band, even low-latitude WRMIs not audible; 7730 is JBA; and 5850 is still S9+20. Other USA: 7385 WHRI S9+20 but unusually fadey; 7355 R. Martà GB JBA.

Yet WWV had reported nothing unusual as of 0000, still audible on 2500 at 0118, K index of 2, no storms. Ditto after 0300. I was hoping for some auroral conditions on MW or lower SW, but not really. It does also mean that high-latitude WBCQ on 5 and 7 MHz will be unreadable for Allan Weiner Worlwide, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Sat Jan 6 at 1359, PanAmerican, Radio Africa Network ID as ``21525`` like yesterday morning on these WRMIs. On the second day of this, I notify Jeff White directly at 1538 UT that R. Africa is on wrong frequencies, in case it`s a mistake he is not aware of. But same ID at 1559 check. Meanwhile 21525 direct is a JBA carrier at best, and inaudible at UTwente SDR. Maybe he got the message, as at 1758 closing some show about ``Gospel of the Kingdom``, but by 1809 recheck both 9s have resumed Oldies with Biermann ID for both frequencies. Further chex of these:

At 1951, 9395 not // 9455, different music. the former with harp probably World Music default fill, or could be rounding out the RAE German relay hour now showing on the skedgrid for 1900; but Saturday besides Monday-Friday? Not explicit. 1954 it`s definitely WM fill on 9395, familiar tunes including Greek; much stronger than 9455 with something else, which by 1958 I conclude is Oldies. Both keep going past 2000 with no ID break. 7780 is not on yet, and 11530 has just gone off after fill music after R. Herwa, which was quite strong, S9+10 at 1950. But inaudible via UTwente at 1935, when presumed // 9580 via France was VP with some music.

9395 continues with World Music and 9455 starts a YL gospel huxter, as this is now a diverse-programming hour. After a Keith Perron canned ID, at 2100, 9395 with more music; while 9455 fires a Bob Zanotti canned ID half a minute later, starting, rather than ending, at hourtop. At 2100.5 starts `Dub Politico`; 7780 is now on but very poor, probably // 9395 music. At 2106-2111, 9395 with delayed VOA News relay. 11580 from 2100 is S9+20 with Slovakia in English as sked only on weekends, and certainly does not need to be replaced by 7780 this early. Next check at 2230: 7780 // 9395 with one gospel huxter; 9455 // 9955 with another. And something else on 11580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.80, very poor UT Sat Jan 6 at 0058, WBCQ The Planet ID & IS loop; 0101 music bits, while 7489.9 is a JBA carrier as `Allan Weiner Worldwide` should be starting, but can`t copy it, except at 0107 VP 5129.8, AW is ``just making sure we are on the air``, giving out phone numbers for reception reports. I`m away from the computer for rest of hour, so can`t listen to webcast either. John H Carver, Jr., mid-north Indiana, was able to hear it and reports:

``Everything frozen here. Snow on the ground. Last few nights have been 14 and 17 below zero. Haven't even gone out to check the mail this week. Listening to the radio and watching some TV is about all I can do :)

Music at 0100. Listening on 5130 again this evening. Program starts mid-sentence at 0105. Three feet of snow at the station and Allan doesn't know where anyone is up there. Angela is in the studio with Allan in FLA. Early phone call from Guatemala saying great reception there. The new program previous to AWWW which was supposed to start two weeks ago wasn't there this evening either as there was no one at the station to patch the phone call onto the air. Long talk about the dangers of portable electric heaters.

After that Allan started another long talk about making ice cream and the various experimenting that he's been doing with and what could be done with it. "Billions of options when making ice cream." [He also showed this on his twitter feed --- gh]. At 0138 Mr. Transistor Radio Norm called the station and spent the first part of his call talking about ice cream and then talked of MW propagation. Reading of emails began at 0149 interrupted by a quick check in by Tony Straka asking if Allan was going to the WinterFest this year in PA. Allan had previously announced a few weeks ago that they would be going but said this evening that he can't make it this year. Show was off the air at 0200`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330v-CUSB, Sat January 6 at several chex such as 1808, 2105 and 2230, no signal detectable from WBCQ, so the 24/7 test period may be over, perhaps curtailed by snowstorm. At 1808, neighbor 9265 WINB was S9-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4894.918, Jan 5 at 0331, VP signal with music vs CODAR on both sides; ditto exactly at 0639 recheck. Got to be R. Novo Tempo, Campo Grande MS, rather than Mongolia or India. Carlos GonÃalves reported it off-frequency last October: ``4894.9, R. Novo Tempo, Cap. Grande MS, 2041-2052, 17/10, prgr. de propag. relig.; 35332`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9665.000, Jan 5 at 0650, Voz MissionÃria has finally fixed its off-frequency, pop song in Portuguese, 0652 TC by YL over music as ``4 horas e 52 minutos``. Weaker second carrier is under, maybe a few Hz away, presumably North Korea (Glenn Hauser, OK,DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 382 kHz, Jan 5 at 0747 UT, beacon YPL and dash detectable. DX Info Centre says it is in Pickle Lake, Ontario; where`s that?
Wikipedia: ``Pickle Lake is a township in the Canadian province of Ontario, and is the most northerly community in the province that has year-round access by road. Located 530 kilometres (330 mi) north of Thunder Bay, highway access is via Highway 599, the only access road to the town from the south. Coordinates: 51Â28'N 90Â11'W`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 990, Jan 5 at 1346 UT, CBW with traffic report about the PÃmbina highway, ``on 89-3``. So CBC dismisses its 50 kW AM station as not worth mentioning. I guess North Dakotans commute into Winnipeg (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Jan 5 at 0644, RHC English is S9+20/30 but back to JBM, better on 6165 & 6000, better yet on 6060 but with het, and best by far in strength and modulation on 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15572.5, 15505, 15437.5, 15302.5, 15235.0, 15167.5, Jan 5 at 1504, main filthy distorted spurblobs out of 15370 RHC today at 67.5 kHz intervals, and weaker ones detectable out to 15100.0, 15032.5 (which will QRM CHR after its ToH dekaminute break), and 15640? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Jan 4 at 2144, VOG is on at S6-S8 with nice solo song in Greek; more music to top of hour with instrumental. Sorely needed something like this on dial for doze/naptime. Nothing on 9935. Had not heard 9420 for quite a while and assumed it sporadic sometimes on when I wasn`t checking; however, in the British DX Club, Peter J Arkless reported at this same time, ``Voice Of Greece coming in very strong now (21.50) on 9.420. Greek music. First time on air for several weeks. Maybe a New Year resolution for the station to broadcast more frequently! 73, Peter``

And Mike Bott replied, ``Making it here to central Ohio on 9420 also. Unfortunately, it has not been so these last couple of weeks. :(
-- Mike`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXL ISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Jan 5 at 0629, JBA carrier from presumed R. Kiribati. I was getting this almost every night initially, but not much lately in almost daily chex in the 06-07 UT period; figured it would be normal for it to appear, or has it been off the air a lot? Previous dates detected here were: Dec 7, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21. Those and many other reports of it starting with DXLD 17-49 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 6065, Jan 5 at 0315, poor-fair, YL speaking in unknown language; the intonation is sorta Spanish, but no words to recognize. HFCC shows it`s AWR in Malgache, 100 kW at 20 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 700, Jan 5 at 1323, during news, TC ``6:23 en la capital del mundo, Parral``. So XEGD, Chihuahua. More timechex for 6:24, 6:25, temp 4 grados. I am hearing this only by nulling much stronger XEETCH which is further west. By 1334 it`s gone while XEETCH is still in. Hidalgo del Parral sunrise not until 1353 per:
https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/@8583642
Enid LSR is now at its latest of the year, 1344 UT:
https://www.gaisma.com/en/location/enid-oklahoma.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 700, Jan 5 at 1323, always neat rustic fiddle & guitar music, good signal from WSW, 1326 pause for ad/PSA string including: Banco de MÃxico, SecretarÃa de Salud re vaccinations, Ricardo Anaya, PAN candidate; INE about independent candidates; full ID for XEETCH, Etchojoa, Sonora, location at km 27 on road from Navojoa, ``5 mil watts en 700 de AM e internet ---``, 1333 ``La Voz de los Tres RÃos``, and full ID again in native language, 1334 back to rustic music. Dominant signal, and can only hear closer XEGD Parral, Chihuahua by nulling XEETCH, from several degrees apart. Etchojoa sunrise 1408 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 13730, Jan 5 at 0702, RNZI is S7-S9 with news, almost the OSOB, except for a JBA carrier on 13750. HFCC shows that would be CRI in Chinese, southward form Kunming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SINGAPORE. 7485, Jan 4 at 1559, some weak Asian signal uncovered after WWCR 7460 QSY to 12160; it`s BBC Urdu via Singapore and it goes off at 1600* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. Brother HyStairical still on WWCR, WWRB, even WRMI: See logs under U S A

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1911 monitoring: confirmed Thursday January 4 at 2230.5 on WRMI, 5850, VG S9+20/30. Carrier was on by 2228, no modulation until 2230.0 with `Okeechobee River` song ID. Not confirmed UT Fri Jan 5 at 0055 check, the 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB â no signal. Next:

I`ve had a complaint that the WOR 1911 podcast stops 10 minutes into and loops repeating the first part. Is anyone else finding that, and from which source(s)? Can`t find anything wrong with my original file
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9330v-CUSB, further chex of the WBCQ 24/7 tests: Jan 4 at 2143, JBA carrier, while 9265 WINB is S9 to S9+10. No signal at 0055 Jan 5 for WOR. At 0301 a JBA carrier. At 0646, S2-S5 with music on 9330.131 --- but 0658 blotted out completely by Cuban spy numbers on its alternate-night schedule. 9330.116v-CUSB, Jan 5 at 1418, poor S5-S7 with music. 9329.984V-CUSB, Jan 5 at 2206, poor S3 generally below noise level, with an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback from a few weeks ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Jan 5 at 0304, this WRMI is VG S9 to S9+10 with R. Prague in English, while 9455 is R. Taiwan in Spanish // much weaker 5985; and also much stronger than 9955 which is now R. Praga in Spanish. 11580 unheard, presumed off.

Usage of 9395 & 9455 in particular has been very confusing and not always matching published schedules. January 5 at 0648, both have a sermon but it`s not Bob Biermann of `Your Weekend Show`, which has been a regular diversion at times from Oldies.

Jan 5 at 1419, 9455 is not // 9955 as supposed to be both System C per the WRMI sked grid at 11-15. Two different gospel huxters. But 9455 is // 9395. 7780 much weaker has different talk, apparently the only one remaining with `The Power Hour` playback from yesterday afternoon. However it is not // 13845 WWCR nor 7490 WWCR with ads. At the odd time of 1454, 7780 interrupts with a WRMI Bob Biermann ID, and then music. Still music at 1501, presumably back to Oldies. 7780 at 2213 is poor, seeming `Power Hour` talk, and not on the nines.

9395 // 9455, Jan 5 at 1459.5, ID as ``21525, Radio Africa Network``! and continues past 1500. Apparently things are all mixed up with the wrong feeds going into transmitters. 21525 is as usual here, a JBA carrier at best. Maybe RAN continued all day on these two, not checked again until 2213 when // with an unknown gospel huxter who sorta sings his sermon, continues past 2215. But soon at 2216 cut to different music and next show, `Be Healed in the Name of Jesus Broadcast`. Now, 9455 has some talk CCI, presumably IBB SAIPAN in Chinese.

9395, Jan 5 at 2216 unusually has transmitted Spanish crosstalk underneath, which does not go away with attenuation. I then match it to much weaker 5950 WRMI, which is the Spanish hour from RAE!

9955, WRMI is still off the air after 1500 Jan 5.

11530, Jan 5 at 0657, surprised to find this WRMI back on air with Brother Scare! and S9+20/30 in the nightmiddle. Yes, it`s TOM since // 5890 WWCR and 3185 WWRB but not exactly synchronized. 0659 cut to Biermann ID, 0700 opening R. Herwa International, and it`s the SSOB, much stronger than 11520 WEWN at S6-S8. I guess WRMI may have just turned 11530 on a few minutes early and failed to suppress the former occupant of the 06-07 fill-block. Nothing audible on 7240 via France.

Not always, but I must say somethings now are wrong at WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Dec 4 at 1848, WWCR-4 is *still* on night frequency with Overcomer, VG signal right after local mean noon here at 1832. Next check at 2216 during other programming, finally changed to 9980.

9980 at 2216, `Will MartÃnez Live`, with timecheck as ``14 minutes before the top of the hour`` --- either he is in some unAmerican half-hour timezone, Or he is *not* live!

Next day Dec 5 at 1417 check, 9980 is already up with BS singing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9370, Jan 5 at 1457, WWRB Overcomer is running 6 seconds behind WWCR 9980, with Bible reading not by Scourby. Still waiting for WWRB to dump him, as Dave has implied he plans to open up the transmitter to other programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1067 & 1093, Jan 5 at 1344 UT check, no IBOC noise detectable from 1080 KRLD Dallas TX. Mark Sills, Dallas, told me Dec 28, ``Starting around December 5, I noticed 1080 KRLD has dropped iboc. I hope they keep the damn thing off. It makes so much noise it makes DXing impossible. You'd be surprised what I was able to pick up with that noise gaughan``.

1157 & 1183, Jan 5 at 1351 UT check, our worst IBOC noise around here is still from 1170 KFAQ Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1110, Jan 5 at 1346 UT, under KFAB am hearing high-pitched singing in South Asian style, surely KVTT, updating/contradicting this: ``1110 KVTT TX Mineral Wells â Reported silent`` (Bill Hale, TX, update to NRC AM Log, AM Switch, NRC DX News Jan 8, published Dec 31)

It`s a 50 kW daytimer, or 39 kW critical hours, with Asian format; really stood out around SR/SS vs KFAB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1200, Jan 5 at 1353 UT, not much signal from WOAI, but Spanish phone interview about Mexican politix, from external POV, mentioning ``su paÃs``, and ``Buenos DÃas, AmÃrica``. Could it originate from VOA, which used to call its morning Spanish show that, long gone from SW? Does it still exist via satellite-webcast-affiliates? By 1400 UT, Chicago mentions and ``deportes radio`` so must be WRTO which is with UnivisiÃn Deportes, but not 100% sports (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4070.186, Jan 5 at 0634, ZN beacon is JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
