Hauser
** CHINA [non]. 13670, Nov 4 at 1431, classic rock? at S5-S9, then
sounds like praise music; what`s this? 1434 French talk about Chine.
Yes, of course, it`s only CRI via ALBANIA at 14-16 for West Africa.

BTW, per HFCC this overlaps an English sesquihour on KBSWR from 1330;
no sign of that here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 3 at 2037, open carrier/dead air, or JBM? RHC
still running after French finished at 2030 (during DST scheduling;
this hour should now be in English ex-19-20). Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860, Nov 3 at 2135, RHC Spanish about baseball, distorted
modulation and pulse-jamming itself, in the absence of any Martà on
weekends; similar distortion on weaker // 5040 at 2139. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Sunday Nov 4 at 1337, RHC with `Cuba Campesina` rustic
music show one hour later than before, and no `En Contacto` DX program
yet, reconfirming that as a running dog of Yanqui Imperialism, Cuba
makes its off-DST change date match the gusanos in Miami, moving most
of its Spanish and some of its otherlangs one real UT hour later.
13700 checked at 1436, now `En Contacto` is starting.

11760, Sunday Nov 4 at 1513, RHC still in Spanish rather than weekly
Esperanto, and still Spanish at 1601, but finally Esperanto starts at
1603, one real hour later than during DST. Times and frequencies for
its three Sunday airings always announced at outset, but I am not
listening closely enough to tell if they have been corrected. I do
confirm that the additional 15140 is also // Esperanto now; since mid
-season A-18 it was expanded to accompany 11760 as only active Spanish
midday frequencies, still surprising some monitors consulting old
skeds and not aware of my previous reports (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 5980, Nov 4 at 0607, Radio Martà is already running
and so is the jamming. Used to start at 0700, but B-18 HFCC shows 3
different antenna segments, why? 06-07 183, 07-11 172, 11-13 190
degrees from GB; all supposedly effective already from Oct 28, not Nov
4.

11860, Sunday Nov 4 at 1526, pulse jamming vs nothing except JBA
carrier from presumed Yemen [non], also victimized elsewhen Radio
Martà is absent from 11860. Something`s always wrong at the
DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Nov 3 at 2048, MWV APR in English hour is also
VG here ex-17640, like 13670 ex-17640 has been at 18-19. 11965
continues on air for next broadcast in Portuguese, aimed souther and
weaker at 2128 check, ending at 2157, then some dead air (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Radio Nigeria, Kaduna: see USA: WRMI

** OKLAHOMA. RF 39, Nov 4 at 1607 UT, KWTV during `Face the Nation` is
running a crawler saying that Nov 27 is the deadline for rescanning to
avoid losing KWTV and CBS programming. Not running it later during
Joel Osteen gospel huxter and NFL when there is plenty of other
clutter abottom.

But KWTV repack channel, RF 25, now displays this notice, snapped at
1640 UT November 4, but which flashes on for a few seconds at a time,
otherwise NO SIGNAL, even tho meter is steady on the BAD side:
http://www.w4uvh.net/KWTV25TEST1.jpg

``IF YOU HAVE RESCANNED AND ARE ABLE TO READ THIS, YOU HAVE
SUCCESSFULLY RESCANNED / DUE TO FCC CONSTRAINTS KWTV 9.1 AND 9.2
PROGRAMMING WILL BEGIN NOVEMBER 19TH ON THIS CHANNEL``

Why don`t the dates match? Will there in fact be duplication Nov 19-27
before 39 is finally QRT?

PSIP now labels RF 25 as 9-3, and 9-4 is also transmitting with same
screen. On both my external antennas, the RF25 signal remains markedly
weaker than RF 39, boding ill for the future of KWTV reception here in
the fringe, unless they still have upgrades to complete.

Replies to my previous post about this, Nov 1/2 on the WTFDA gg:

- Trip Ericson of www.rabbitears.info says about rescanoklahoma.com -
``That page looks like it was set up to encourage people to rescan
when KSBI added 52-2 through 52-5 [when was that?? gh]. I've been told
the simulcast on 25 is temporary as a part of testing, and will revert
to the color bars in another day or two until the transition date at
the end of November.``

Jim Thomas, Springfield MO: ``The idea about NOT simulcasting
programming on the repack channel is a BIG JOKE. KRBK 49 Springfield
Missouri just repacked to RF 22 on Wednesday of this week. The RF 22
transmitter had been on since Tuesday of last week. They turned off
the RF 49 transmitter at noon on Wednesday. The entire time both
channels were running live Fox programming. A color bars screen was
NEVER observed on RF 22. What is the FCC going to do about stations
doing this? Nothing, IMHO. I think the FCC has bigger things to
*worry* about`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Sunday Nov 4 at 1557, REE with silly ballgame, //
12030 about equal despite opposite direxions. Some had reported REE
missing the day before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.702, Nov 4 at 1331, VOT English news, S8/S9+10,
having decided to go way-off-frequency today, lite het de 12035.0 KSDA
Guam in Thai.

15350.0, Nov 4 at 1332, VOT Turkish remains on frequency, S5-S7.
11815.0, Nov 4 at 1422, VOT Turkish next frequency also remains not
offset, covering JBA Japan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXL ISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15580, Sat Nov 3 at 2158, VOA rock music is VG, backward
from Greenville, chopped off midsong at 2159:53* without any
announcement, sign off or Yankee Doodle. After publicizing it twice in
advance, I completely forgot to check this hour on Friday Nov 2 for
`Music Time in Africa`, hearing instead `Behaviour Night` on WBCQ
7490v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9975, Nov 3 at 2027, ``Blue Velvet``, another Oldies
channel? No, 2034 Korean announcement, so it`s VOA via THAILAND at 19
-21, 38 degrees from Udorn, also USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1954 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday November 4 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, fair-poor with
considerable storm noise level from somewhere, about 9 minutes into
show, so started circa 0318.

Manuel MÃndez, Lugo, Spain, Tecsun S-8800, cable antenna, 8 meters,
reports: ``GERMANY, 7265, Hambuerger LokalRadio, Goehren, 1130-1200,
04-11, English, Glenn Hauser's program "World of Radio". 15321`` Next:

2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 to SSE [ex-2130]
0230 UT Monday WRN 5950 via WRMI to WNW [? not last week]
0400vUT Monday Area 51 5130v via WBCQ to WSW [ex-0300v]
0430 UT Monday WRMI 9955 to SSE [ex-0330]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Sunday Nov 4 at 1336, WRMI with ``Bye, Bye, Love``
Oldies music instead of dead air Friday for at least a sesquihour,
instead of Radio Nigeria, Kaduna; 1358 song ``Cherish`` and Oldies-
style ID, but 1400 switch to another of three dozen weekly airings of
`Wavescan`! (meanwhile, 9395 is BS); 11580 off by 1500.

RN,K was still being heard on the afternoon/evening broadcast circa
2130 Nov 3 on 11580. All three are still alleged on the skedgrid, 05-
09, 11-15, 20-23. As usual, VG signal here in the daytime off the
back, JBA carrier at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Sunday Nov 4 at 1401, WRMI with the Japo-Mississippian
gospel huxtress; 1504 still on with Blalock the Blaster, who some
refer to as a Cajun. Skedgrid now shows 9955 extension on Sat/Sun is
at 1500-1700; and all programming on it has shifted one UT hour later
to seem to stay at the same local Eastern time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.1v, Nov 4 at 1512, NO signal from WBCQ, all-BS-all-the
-time. This had been running reliably 24/7. Not prop, as nearest other
SW, 9265V WINB is quite audible. At some point, surely not yet, old
9330 programming will have to go when the 500 kW superstation start
testing, if it really be only on 9330 as already registered 24h.
Surely the transmitter will be frequency-agile and potentially much
more effective propagationally (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 7365, Nov 3 at 2139, VR IS and off at 2140*. Scheduled
only until 2130 for Portuguese, 234 degrees from SMG to CIRAF 46W
where the only Portuguese-speaking country is Guinea-Bissau. Was there
a dekaminute of IS, or additional programming? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 620, the C&W station in Regina is CKRM, not CKCK ---
altho it used to be CKCK until 2001y. I realised this after seeing
CKRM recently reported from Europe (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1844 UT November 4

** ARMENIA. 9305, Nov 3 at 1311, TWR music-box IS, S1-S5 with flutter;
1316 S Asian talk. HFCC shows 1315-1445, 300 kW, 100 degrees from ERV.
But Aoki shows TWR India not until 1345-1445, variety of languages
depending on day of week, quarter of hour. Must have expanded (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BANGLADESH. 9455, Nov 3 at 1313, 1 kHz tone at S3-S5 with flutter,
1314, Bangladesh Betar IS, 1315 accurate! 5+1 timesignal and into
listed Nepali, starting at their hourtop. Now not blocked by WRMI`s
very limited usage of 9455. Next broadcast in Urdu at 1400 on 15505
isn`t making it beyond an imaginary-level JBA carrier. BB is another
station absent from HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4885, Nov 3 at 0159, R. Clube do Parà continues to be the
most outstanding ZY on 60m; in a multi-station ID for their network,
mostly on MW, which would be interesting to record and copy details;
as usual, CODAR QRM evitable with LSB tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 530, UT Sat Nov 3 at 0605 UT, song in strange language
mixing with EZL from Cuba, and annoying het from 531, presumably
Algeria. And I presume this is multi-cultural CIAO, Brampton/Toronto.
Generic program sked shows Hindi/Punjabi after local midnite. Link to
full pdf sked turns out to be dated Feb 2016!
https://www.am530.ca/AM-530-Program-Schedule-February2016.pdf
and no more specific, but those languages occupied most of the 24h,
with a few others in local evenings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9899.571, Nov 2 at 2208, dead air at S9 listening in SSB;
turning up volume in AM, a trace of just-barely modulated music. HFCC
shows R. Cairo now on ``9900`` in ``English`` at 2115-2245, 125 kW,
325 degrees from Abis to Europe, thus also USward beyond; and ditto
French at 2000-2115 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. 5950, Nov 2 at 2200, WRN via WRMI opening Deutsche
Welle hour in English --- thus, despite best efforts of DW to thwart
SW listenership in North America, they are overridden, perhaps without
even knowing it! Another time should be 07-08 UT, unconfirmed. At 2200
also subject to be overcome by Radio Martà programa diferido on
certain days, and also subject to jamming but none heard now. 5950 is
also among the weakest (modulation if not signal) of WRMI frequencies
despite being aimed WNW almost hereward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 570, Nov 3 at 0251, ranchera music dominates, ``en BJB, tu
mÃsica regional mexicana``, easily overcoming KLIF, DFW, which goes
out every which way but north; i.e. XEBJB, Monterrey NL, non-
direxional and looks like it will not abandon AM. ``Regional`` could
mean anything, depending on what region (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Nov 3 at 0201, NO signal from XEPPM; oh-oh. Already
on standard time, should now be running until s/off circa 0600* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 930, UT Sat Nov 3 at 0242 UT, silly ballgame in English;
on the E-W longwire, I wonder if it`s not WKY, until they mention HS
teams Irish vs Carl Albert, the latter being an Okie. Then DF on the
DX-398 confirms it`s merely WKY OKC, which is supposed to be ESPN-D in
Spanish. But these guys speak English without an accent (other than
Okie)! WKY doesn`t hesitate to run ads in English either, amid Spanish
programming. So don`t be fooled if you hear English on 930.

I remain amused by the coincidental fact that all three call letters
are the least-Spanish in the alfabet. Fortunately they are retaining
the legacy call rather than replacing it. E. K. Gaylord could never
have imagined how his pioneer station would wind up (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 9485-9490-9495, Nov 2 at 2205, DRM noise. HFCC shows RRI,
2200-2300 in Spanish, 90 kW, 247 degrees from Tsiganeshti to CIRAF 14.
Not to be confused with Cuban overrun jamming caused by Radio
RepÃblica (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690 // 11940, Fri Nov 2 at 2210, REE to the Americas, S9+30
and S9 resp., with Castilian discussion about sports. I keep missing
the M/W/F 2300 English broadcast, inconvenient time for me, and
Richard Langley confirms it signs off at 0300 before English can
repeat. Virtually inaudible by then, anyway.

11685 // 12030, Fri Nov 2 at 2210, REE to ME/Africa, S1 and S6-7
resp., *separate* non-// talk from the other two frequencies, 2212
this about ``lo que suthede en Ãfrica``, story about bendithiÃn,
JesÃs, reporting from Guinea Ecuatorial (ex-colony of Spain), on
`Ãfrica Hoy` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9335, Nov 2 at 2202, Cambodian talk, 2203 VOA jingle
at S9-S5, i.e. 2200-2230, 250 kW due west from Tinang, PHILIPPINES
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15600, Nov 3 at 1431, S9+10 song, 1432 talk about
America, i.e. VOA Kurdish via Woofferton, 250 kW at 102 degrees.
Except for Cuba 15700, 15230, one of the SSOB along with 15300 VOA
Vatican relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15300, Sat Nov 3 at 1432, S9+10 VG song with heavy
beat, 1435 YL mixes English and French for lesson about how ``next``
is translated by a number of different words into French depending on
context, on ``Word of the Day``. This is the Sat & Sun-only VOA relay
hour via VATICAN supposedly in Kirundi, as also heard with VOA-Afrique
rock music last Sunday. Except for Cuba 15700 & 15230, along with
15600 via WOF, one of the SSOB via SMG`s excellent off-beam reach
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1954 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
November 3 at 1239 tune-in, the 1231 on Unique Radio via WINB, 9265V,
not too much wobble, S9-S6.

Barely confirmed Sat Nov 3 at new time 1531 on Hamburger Lokalradio,
9485-CUSB via UTwente SDR: huge splash from 9490 CRI, but recognizable
WOR theme with narrow 1.63 kHz bandwidth; no better toward the end at
1558. Alan Gale, NW England, reports: ``Hi Glenn, Annoyingly it faded
right out after about 5 minutes, I think the skip must have gone
longer, it would have been fine if it had been on at 1430. It will be
interesting to see if it does the same again next week. I actually
managed to get a recording of the fade out as it happened, copy
attached. Alan``.

Next airing confirmed at 1700 UT Sat Nov 3 on WRN North America
webcast, ex-1600, supposedly also via WRMI 5950, a JBA carrier here.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, UT Sat Nov 3 at 0205, WRMI with alternate Radio MartÃ
programming, YL promo, not // regular RM via Greenville on 6030, 7355,
7435. 5950 has some intermittent ute-blapp burst QRM; or are they in
the feed? not like jamming this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST) See also GERMANY [non]

** U S A. 15770, Nov 3, I have been meaning to recheck this WRMI
frequency reactivated a few weeks ago at midday, but the skedgrid now
shows all hours blank, for XMTR 9 at 44 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.1+, Fri Nov 2 at 2130-2200, enjoyed the last half of
`Behaviour Night` on WBCQ, really old music recordings; reminder that from now until early March, will be one UT hour later and one hour
more of improved nightish propagation, 2200-2300 Fridays, just like
allied show `Marion`s Attic` at same time Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX Listening Digest)

** U S A. (7490), Nov 3 at 00-01, I miss hearing Allan Weiner
Worldwide on WBCQ, but John Carver reports:

``Tonight's show started on time this evening but there was no sign of
7490 at all so listening on 5130. Allan and Angela in the studio.
Opening talk about the upcoming election. It seems that Allan is still
in FLA although he stated last week that he would be back in Maine at
the end of the month. All of the early talk is political drivel and
then morphs into a talk about religion.

First phone call is at 0025 from Freddie who chimes in with support of
Allan's opinions about politics and religion albeit peppered with four
letter words. Freddie calls back at 0035 to talk about Angela. Ramsey
calls at 0038 with his opinion about the caravan of people making
their way North to our border. Phone call at 0044 with another person
talking about the caravan of people and why they should be stopped.

Allan then comments about an article in the current online edition of
Spectrum Monitor about the new superstation entitled WBCQ rises from
the ashes or some such. Wasn't aware that it had burned down. He then
answers an email from Larry Will about Radio Sputnik. A scan of emails
begins at 0058. Program was cut off in the middle of a sentence as it
was last week at 0059 and a half by my clock. Didn't even get to the
closing prayer. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, S9+30 and parasite JBA spur carriers 5072.1 & 5097.9,
Nov 3 at 1242, WTWW-2 is on at this odd hour with ``Blue Velvet`` ---
has it been classic rock all night? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 660, Nov 3 at 1253 UT, political ad in English with Navajo
accent, then canned Ace Hardware jingle and ad, from KTNN Window Rock
AZ. Usual suspicions about this 50 kW failing to protect NYC when I
get it over night path; sunrise here 1257; FCC sunrise for KTNN in
Nov, 1345 UT (December: 1415). Also, Arizonans have noticed KTNN
missing sporadically, good for DX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 830, Nov 3 at 1255 UT, looping NW/SE, discussion of oil and
water produxion, soon lapsing into creationism and plug for ICR, and
more overt gospel-huxtering. DF and format make this have to be
nothing but KUYO Evansville (Casper market) WY; no sign of MN, TN or
LA 830s now at Enid sunrise. Trouble is, KUYO is supposed to be a 25
kW daytimer (CH: 9.2 kW) and no PSRA known. FCC shows not supposed to
be on air until 1400 UT (December: 1430). God`ll get`em for that?
Yeah, sure (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1040, Nov 3 at 1259 UT, super-hype voice-actor intones,
``live from studios in Colorado Springs, Colorado ---``, i.e. KCBR CoL
Monument CO, 15 kW hip-hop daytimer. You guessed it, another cheater
before official FCC November sunrise of 1345 (December: 1415). But
even so, CH of only 2 kW for two hours after legal sunrise (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 620, Nov 3 at 1249 UT, C&W music loops N/S, certainly
not biztalker KEXB Metroplex, but which begins to show a minute later
just in time to obscure an announcement from the other. Only
possibilities seem to be KMNS Sioux City IA, 1/1 kW U4 not favoring
the south, supposed to be sports; and CKCK Regina SK, with double
format of C&W and sports, 10/10 kW U4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 702, Nov 3 at 1237 on the R75, two carriers making a 1
Hz beat, so that doesn`t fit for 2BL NSW and Magic NZ, 3 or 6 Hz
apart. MWoffsets doesn`t offer something likely 1 Hz away from 2BL
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 882, Nov 3 at 0230, some music detectable, presumably
the 100+ kW BBC Wales synchros.

936, Nov 3 at 0230, two carriers beating, Morocco, and what? There are
3 x 20 kW Radio 5 in Spain. Much further there are hi-power ME
stations. This time I have skipped a full TA carrier bandscan and
honed in on some stronger ones into the R75 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 972, Nov 3 at 1242 UT, some talk modulation detectable
on the DX-398, presumably the bigsig from sesquimegawatt HLCA of KBS,
Korea South; 12 kHz from a local on 960 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [and non]. New scheduling for RFI English: see ISRAEL [non]

** ISRAEL [non]. 5950, Nov 2 at 0535-0540+, S9+10 but undermod, WRMI
with WRN relay; expecting to hear RFI, but all the discussion concerns
Israel, Pittsburgh. Yes, advance timeshift has now put Israel Radio in
the 05-06 hour instead of 04-05, with RFI back to 06-07, same time as
on their own SW which per B-18 HFCC has moved way down to 7245, but
from 3 Feb back up to 9735. And DW should now be at 07-08 on 5950
WRMI. Complete WRN B-18 sked including other times for Israel et al.,
partly also via 5950:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNID 17850!

** KUWAIT. 11629.757, Nov 2 at 1430, R. Kuwait with Qur`an --- but
also slightly weaker audio of something else in Arabic talk, music;
presumably a different RK program, obviously mixed into single off-
frequency transmitter modulation. Something`s always wrong --- (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Friday November 2 at 1350, WRMI with dead air
instead of Radio Nigeria, Kaduna, just when last week it was
Qur`aning. Monitored straight thru until 1500*, nothing but dead air,
except for truncated 10-second ToH WRMI Rudy legal IDs in English,
auto-firing just before 1400 and 1500. They were made as brief as
possible, since RNK allowed no time for US IDs to be inserted (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY [and non]. 15270, Nov 2 at 1324-1325.5*, IS ending VOT
German almost on-frequency, and today it takes only a minute for 12035
to come up by *1326.5, also near-frequency with IS and English IDs.
Turkish service continues on, close to 15350 at 1348 check, while
11815.0 is still clear for NHK in Japanese. At 1400, TRT has QSYed and
now the transmitter is way off, 11815.7, S9+10 with R. Japan making a
considerable het. So was it really the same transmitter which just
closed 15350 without being 0.7 kHz away? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 5975, Nov 2 at 0549, bits of English voiced-over into Hausa,
mentions Ghana, Exxon-Mobil, etc. S9+10 causing ACI to weaker 5970
WEWN. HFCC shows this is BBC at 0529-0600, 300 kW, 160 degrees from
Woofferton, and ``G BBC ENC 16148`` --- So BBC is the broadcaster,
and ENC is the Frequency Management Organisation --- what does that
mean? Encompass Digital Media Services, replacing Babcock --- tsk2, no
more fun embedding BBC into BaBcoCk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Nov 2 at 0534, VOA news via Oldies via WRMI, and now
the SSOB! You never know: sometimes this frequency is a JBA carrier
overnight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific just-barely-audible mediumwave carrier
search, Nov 2 at 1246-1304 UT, many from DU (WSW) and/or FE (NW). If
there is no direxion appended, probably both or just too weak to tell
on the DX-398: 558, 567-NW, 576-WSW, 585-NW, 594(2), 603-NW, 612(2),
657-NW, 675-NW, 693-NW, 702-WSW(2), 711-NW, 738(2), *747-NW, 756(2),
774(2), 819-NW, 828-NW, 864-NW, 873-NW(2), 945-NNW, *972-NW, 981,
1008, 1035-NW+(2), 1044-NW, 1053-NW, 1062-NW(2), 1071, 1098(2), 1134-
NW, 1143-NW, 1332-NW, *1566-NW.

Notes: * means stronger ones; (2) means at least two carriers beating.

Above 890 kHz, local noise level degrades until it stops at 1305; a
neighbor`s touch lamp? The 1300 UT mark comes by 1143 kHz. I switch
back to 972 just before 1300, but cannot hear any time pips, tho on
original scan at 1255 it was strong enough to push some audio,
presumed South Korean.

A medium SAH on 702, not from the NW, points to the offset between 2BL
Sydney and Magic, Auckland NZ, as Mauno Ritola and Neil Kazaross
recently discussed, i.e. 6 Hz apart: ``701.993 ABC Sydney, 701.999
Magic, Auckland`` However, MWOffsets shows 701.9960 for 2BL as of last
week, and 701.9991 for Magic as of 2017-02-26, i.e. only 3 Hz apart.
There are also some weaker Au/NZ stations on ``702``.

945 bearing NNW is a puzzle. Frequency is very close, so unlikely a
spur or birdie. That would put it at the longitude of western China,
but the big`un with 400 kW is in the east, Jilin province (Glenn
Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Re: ``17850-AM, Oct 31 at 2110, JBA carrier, and the
OSOB to boot; but nothing scheduled now in HFCC or Aoki/NDXC``

Light-bulb: could be third harmonic of 5950 WRMI! Harmonix from
Okeechobee are rare; once we had one from 7 MHz on 15 MHz band, but
generally well-suppressed and frequencies accurate (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
