NEWISH! DX LISTENING DIGEST IN PDF, HTML VERSIONS

Jacques Champagne in Ville-Marie, QuÃbec, has developed programs to
convert DXLD .txt into PDF and HTML versions for his own use, and now
has made them available to the rest of us. Starting with 18-24, they have
been posted as attachments to the WOR iog. He says it takes about an
hour to do this, once each issue is published. Merci, Jacques!

[Thanks also to Jacques for helping us with a formatting problem which
delayed this issue]

NOTE: If you are a regular reader of DXLD, and a source of DX news but
have not been sending it directly to us, please consider yourself
obligated to do so. Thanks, Glenn

Hauser
** ANGUILLA [non]. 11775, Sept 2 at 1418, CB is OFF even tho it`s
Sunday, as their sporadic appearances continue. However, leaves 11780
RNA Brasil with no ACI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11980, Sept 2 at 0145, JBA carrier, probably RHC leapfrog as
IDed before, 11700 over 11840 another 140 kHz beyond. Also suffers
splash from huge dirty RHC fundamental on 12000. Something`s always
wrong at RHC.

12114.40, Sept 2 at 0146, JBA in Spanish, probably RHC, but I have
only one receiver handy at the moment so no // check. Then I find a
match on 11885.6, so that nails these down as spurs of 12000 RHC,
exactly plus and minus 114.4 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Sept 2 at 0125 JBA carrier, but not at
0143. Mighty KBC via GERMANY will move here next week at 0000-0200 UT
Sundays. Currently in Aoki/NDXC on 5960 is 100 kW from PBS Xinjiang,
Urumqi, East Turkistan at 2300-0257, tsk2. Current KBC frequency for
the last time this year, 9925, is also JBA carrier at 0143 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6959.95, Sept 2 at 0132, JBA AM carrier and still
at 0149 when I measure it. No logs in HFUnderground now, but a few
days ago Radio Illuminati was reported on this off-frequency (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1945 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday September 2 at 0336 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, 14
minutes into show so started circa 0322; poor in storm noise level.
Next:
Sun 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE

http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday September 2 at 0601, WTWW with classic rock
songs, S9+30, presumably in ToH pause/news hole during `Southern Talk
in the Midnight` which has been running for several weeks at 0500-
0700; so I keep listening for the second hour to resume, but it does
not! Instead at 0609 still music, solo rendition of ``America, the
Beautiful``, then pulls the plug at 0612* off the air! STITM must be
gone again from WTWW. Own website
http://www.tennhills-productions.com/
Still claims to be ``from Tennessee`` and ``the great south east``
but references to WTWW have been deleted. Still has a logo for KCAA
1050 +FMs in California, but labeled as a ``past affiliate`` --- that
leaves only the 13-watt KYAH 540, ``Utah`s Talk Authority``, where
the time is given as ``10PM - Saturday Nights PST - 12AM CST``! What
does that mean? PST and CST are not observed anywhere except
Saskatchewan. Meaning start times? Had been at 12 AM CDT = 0500 UT.
So was the first hour anyway on 5085? It`s not mentioned at wtww.us
but IIRC hadn`t been during the period it was really on the air.

BTW, Kenneth Vito Zichi has been raving about the sound quality
during WTWW rock music shows --- altho very strong and wideband, I
find the distortion level annoying (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Sept 2 at 0136, VOV relay via WHRI is in
stilted English! Not stilted Spanish as supposed to start at 0130.
It`s S9+40/50 with news of flooding, medals in Asian Games,
Indonesia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7299.5-CW, Sept 2 at 0138, contact not hand-keyed,
reply from a weaker station. What are hams doing with CW in this part
of band? Or intruders? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13623-USB, Sept 2 at 1349, JBA 2-way in Spanish,
INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15292-USB, Sept 2 at 1414, INTRUDERS, good signals in
2-way contact, colloquial Spanish, mixed with totally unrecognizable
words, native language? At least I can make out ``puta`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** ANGUILLA. 11775, Fri Aug 31 at 1357, CB is off again after sporadic
appearances this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. 9265V, Saturday Sept 1 at 1213, Hobart Radio
International, The Voice of Tasmania, via Unique Radio, NSW, via WINB,
Pennsylvania. S9 with carrier wobble listening in SSB but not heard in
AM; 1226 some 48m Europirate logs with SINPOs, fading here to S5; 1230
Andean music during Unique Radio contact info and intro WORLD OF RADIO
1945, new relay which starts at 1231:21, until 1300:03 when Tim Gaynor
resumes his own show `Sounds of Your Life` with mailbag as his WINB
block has been extended to 1330, a.k.a. ``World community radio from
Australia``. So now SOYL is 1100-1130 & 1300-1330, with three DX
programs in between: 1130 `International Radio Report` from CKUT, 1200
HRI, and 1230 WOR. Thanks, Tim!

Podcast of the whole thing is at:
https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/uniqueradio/episodes/2018-09-01T06_23_32-07_00
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BANGLADESH. 15505, Sept 1 at 1358, 1 kHz tone from JBA Bangladesh
Betar, 1358:31 IS, 1359:57.5 mis-timesignal ends 10.5 seconds earlier
than two days ago; opening Urdu (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 13740, Sept 1 at 1403, open carrier, dead air except
for perpetual squeal, from Cuban relay transmitter; even carrier break
for a few seconds at 1404:25; finally JIP China Plus in English under-
modulation from 1406:39, having missed the ``news`` completely. Thus
the ChiCom continue to be shortchanged by their Cuban lackeys
attempting the relays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13633 & 13767, Aug 31 at 1329, trace of distorted FM blobs
from RHC 13700-AM transmitter are all it can manage today; something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Fri Aug 31 at *1400:43, Greenville cuts on
carrier late vs. jamming already running, joining Radio MartÃ
modulation at 1401:15 but soon dumps off air; back on with carrier at
*1402:07, and modulation stays from 1402:49, well atop jamming.

Thus RM concludes its third week on 11860, colliding directly with RHC
after 1930. Saturday Sept 1 at 1403, no RM as it rests another
weekend, but wall-of-noise jamming continues anyway; something`s
always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 1 at 0612, R. Kiribati continues to put a JBA
carrier in here 7200 km = 4474 stmi = 3888 nmi away (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 870, Sept 1 at 1210, I hear a bit of the Mexican NA by a
solo voice, 1211 some YL talk maybe unSpanish, smacking of XETAR, La
Voz de la Sierra Tarahumara, Guachochi, Chihuahua, which I have been
trying to confirm still on the air, but unheard today or othermornings
from nominal *1200 for a daytimer in the summer; apparently flexible.
Today at 1200 I was getting otherSpanish, surely KLSQ Nevada [see
USA]. The only other western Mexican on 870 is XEFIL in MazatlÃn;
neither is on Tim Hall`s roster of stations he has confirmed to have
left AM for FM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sept 1 at 0607, VON is AWOL again (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, Sept 1 at 0437, YHWH is S9 but undermodulated,
in very strange conditions lacking anything extracontinental on the
band, stronger than weakened 7505 WRNO, about equal to attenuated 7570
WRMI and stronger than 7730.

Also vs. high local (line?) noise level at S7, but which peaks worst
at S9+10 in the 3.7-5.5 MHz range, rather wiping out any DX on the 60m
band. Below 3.7 it`s only S9, and by 9 MHz only S1. I can`t find any
household device causing it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 515 kHz, Aug 31 at 0623 UT, NDB PN in Ponca City, a semi-
local always audible day & night, has developed quite a chirp, i.e.
pitch of tone wobbles as each letter is keyed (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1945 monitoring: confirmed Thursday
August 30 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.15, fair --- first time heard on 9330V
irregular schedule since Tuesday August 7! But not 24 hours later.

Checking Saturday Sept 1 after 1431 on Utwente SDR for WOR on
Hamburger Lokalradio, 6190-CUSB, nothing heard until a trace by 1457.

Alan Gale, England, reports: ``Hi Glenn, Very odd propagation from HLR
on 6190 kHz today. It was coming in well here from around 1230 UT,
even good in the AM mode, but typically dropped down in strength at
around 1425 and was then up and down in QSB right till the end of your
programme, with just a couple of peaks in strength at around 1440 and
1450. I had to switch to CUSB to hear the rest of the info. I guess
that now we are into September we'll see the propagation on 6 MHz
changing a lot in the coming weeks.`` Next:

Sat 1930v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, UT Fri Aug 31 at 0322 on BST-1 caradio, Chinese music
I was sure coming from a CRI relay, until I heard in Morse code the
memory frequency tuned. After WRMI ID, 0330 on to `Sounding the Alarm`
gospel huxter. Announced date of original broadcast which was May 17,
2016; so here we are 27.5 months later as the world keeps turning.
Scheduled at 0315 UT Tue-Sat is `Moments in Bible Prophecy` --- so
that failed to default music fill (but not the usual variety of World
Music), or maybe the Moments occupy much less than the 14 minute slot?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 870, Sept 1 at 1200 UT, Spanish loops E/W, only catch
``870`` in ToH ID, into sports talk, making SAH of about 9 Hz with WWL
remnant to 1207 UT fadeout. This all points to KLSQ Whitney NV (Las
Vegas), 5000/430 watts U2, ESPN-D. Official FCC September sunrise is
1315 UT, so should have been on 430-watt night power and direxional to
the NW --- but I bet it`s really 5 kW ND day pattern. No PSRA for it
is known to the new NRC AM Log. Of course I was looking for XETAR;
see MEXICO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** ANGUILLA. 11775, Wed Aug 29 at 1259, CB is on with PMS on TUN. Evidently has gone back to irregular schedule anyday, after a spell on local Sun & Mon only. But 11775 is off again at 1842 check. 6090 is off again at 0437 UT Thu Aug 30 check. 11775 is on again at 1353 Aug 30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BANGLADESH. 15505, Aug 30 at 1356, Bangladesh Betar is already on with 1 kHz tone --- best I`ve heard it in ages. Tone stops at 1358:15 and lovely haunting interval signal starts a few seconds later, repeating multiply until 5+1 mis-timesignal ending at 1400:08, and announcement starting Urdu service to the former west wing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRIA. 11880, Aug 29 at 2109, very poor talk at S0-S1, maybe French? No, AWR English via Moosbrunn is scheduled until 2130; before RHC takes over circa 2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 5035, Aug 29 at 0627, JBA carrier with fades. I suppose it has to be one of the ZYs, more likely R. Aparecida. By now the ACI splash from 5040 Cuba is off, allowing at least this much to be detected (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, Aug 29 at 1301, RHC cuts on and off during attempt at frequency announcement; by 1308 stays on, but fails to accompany with panoply of FM signals across the band. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6000, UT Thu Aug 30 at 0637, RHC English is again suptorted here; 6100 = 6165 undermodulated but not distorted; only 6060 is VG as `Arts Roundup` is starting. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 7435, Aug 30 at 0423, R. Martà with electronic/keyboard music, no announcements, pauses between trax, only during which some jamming is audible vs S9+25. Same on // 7335, and 6030. I keep listening the rest of the hour to this very strange ``programming`` for RM. Including repeats of some of the same tunes! Now I`m convinced Greenville has lost program feed from Miami studio and is filling with this, which continues even past 0500, altho 7435 to 7365 QSY happens on time with a 28-second break before 7365 cuts back on at *0500:00 sharp with carrier, rejoining others with music at 0500:27. By 0641 final check, both 7 MHz signals have faded way down below the jamming level, but 6030 is back to programming with talk and clips of music videos. For fun at 0453 I also tried 1180 to // the music, but the only QRM to the echoey Rebeldeblast was English, probably WHAM.

11860, the new Martà frequency at 14-22, colliding head-on with RHC after 1930, is also supposedly employed in the nightmiddle at 07-10 according to Ivo. During awake chex at 0704 & 0915 Aug 30, it is inaudible, but hardly expected to propagate here or there. OCB has still failed to register it at all in the latest HFCC files as of 29 August. At those hours, something even below 6 MHz band would be much more effective: propagation 101 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Aug 29 at 0632, carrier still on and seemingly open, from R. Truth (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Aug 29 at 0629, JBA carrier yet audible thru storm noise, from R. Kiribati no doubt. Also August 30 as early as 0456. Gaisma.com claims sunset at Ronton (London), Xmas Island is 19:34 local minus 12 for UT = 0734! But
https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/kiribati/kiritimati
shows this part of Kiribati is on UT +14 (which = Hawaii UT -10 on other side of dateline!), sunset at 18:34 local minus 14 = 0434 UT! So gaisma is all wrong about this one. And so is WRTH 2018, implying it`s all UT+12; at presstime there was no 846 but there was FM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Aug 30 at 0431, S9+20 Spanish quite undermodulated, but turning up volume with ECSS helps, drama mentioning UNAM, and 0436 Radio EducaciÃn ID which XEPPM is still using on Mexico`s only SWBC station left standing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Aug 29 at 0630, JBA carrier presumed SIBC where it`s almost Honiara sunset at 0718. Nothing yet from 4835 Queensland, which Manuel MÃndez says he detected in Spain this early, longpath. We have 4840 WWCR with which to contend, but sometimes MUF falling below (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 11620, Aug 30 at 0415, Eye Radio via MADAGASCAR this hour M-F, YL in heavily African-accented English very hard to understand, news mentioning Juba, S5 with deep fades. (Since there are multiple mutually incomprehensible native African languages influencing how English be spoken, one would assume various other Africans would also have a hard time understanding a different ESL version, right? Everyone should strive for an American accent as compromise, hi) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 7375, Aug 30 at 0424, VOA via BOTSWANA talking about an ECOWAS radio station in English, French, Portuguese, something new, maybe on SW?? But soon on to another topic about domestic violence against women in SÃnÃgal.

Searching finds news that the Economic Community of West African States got a radio station in Monrovia, Liberia, in March 2018. It had been a UN station, then transferred to ECOWAS. WTFK, FM only? WRTH had UNMIL Radio on 91.5 in Monrovia, plus three others elsewhere. Searching voanews.com on ecowas radio gets no recent hits (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1945 monitoring: barely confirmed, Wed Aug 29 at 2103 on WBCQ 7490+, VP in noise level, gh voice recognized but only presumed it`s the latest edition --- until 2114 when my rotating mid-show catchprase is the one I utter this week, ``the media magazine you monitor with your mind``!

But once again this week, 9955 WRMI is OFF past 2100, until *2102 Wed Aug 29, JIP WOR a sesquiminute late; could they start turning on this transmitter a few minutes earlier?? At S6-S7; 9395 was already on at S7-S8. Next:

** U S A. 9455, UT Thu Aug 30 at 0058, WRMI is on with weekly BS emission on this frequency, ID, at 0100 over to weekly `Hal Turner` 2-hour talkshow starting with wacky disclaimer, and now // 7490 WBCQ staying on late this night only. He announces these two SW stations and ONE other affiliate: 540 KYAH in Delta UT --- the same one carrying WTWW`s UT Sunday midnight show, 13 watts at night. But KYAH can legally run day power 1 kW until 0230 UT in August; only -0145 in September (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730, Aug 30 at 0420, WRMI in Spanish so colloquial I wonder if it`s really Spanish, or Italian? No, heavy porteÃo accent as someone is being interviewed about Radio Mitre, during `La Rosa de Tokio` as now scheduled this hour on UT Thursdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15610 & 12050, Aug 29 at 2108, no signals from WEWN English or Spanish. Possibly propagation? Maybe on the higher one, but I don`t think so. Something`s frequently wrong at WEWN; or could be closedown during storm or mowing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 92.7, Aug 29 at 1512 UT, ``The New 92-7, The Blast``, i.e. KWME Wellington KS, as already listed by WTFDA DB with 14 kW H&V, 130m HAAT, so how ``new`` is it? Format designation as ``rhythmic oldies``. (Show me an Oldie, or any pop music, without rhythm?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4170-USB, Aug 30 at 0446, surprised to hear some 2-way, maybe Greek or Spanish, atop my local third harmonic of KCRC 1390. It`s within a marine comms band, but is 4170 for anything in particular? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4810, Aug 30 at 0443, JBA carrier again sideswiped by huge utehash on the upper side. I`ve reported this at least twice recently and no one has replied to my inquiry whether it could be Radio Logos, PerÃ, the only likely broadcaster at this hour, if it`s active, rather than Armenia or India (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7581.40, Aug 30 at 0422, open carrier at S9, some fades. Maybe ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14018-LSB, Aug 29 at 1253, very poor 2-way, unknown language. Presumably INTRUDERS as hams would not be in phone here in the CW portion of 20m band, nor would they not be in USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, UT Wed Aug 29 at 0141, CariBeacon is back on with PMS, having missed its 2-day-a-week broadcasts on UT Mon & Tue, so making up for that? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780 RF, Aug 29 at 0133, RNA is back in whack in AM here, ex-11686-FM all afternoon and evening yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Aug 28 at 0607, RHC English is very undermodulated here and somewhat distorted, while 6165 is as soft but not distorted; 6100 is JBA, and 6060 is very good strength and modulation. So at least one of them is working. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6000, UT Wed Aug 29 at 0142, just as Arnie is ending mit-week edition of `DXers Unlimited`, RHC English is just barely modulated here, somewhat louder on // 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Aug 29 at 0143, R. Progreso is off, while 5025 & 5040 remain on; by 0349, 4765 is back on but undermodulated, S9+10/20 about same level as 5025 Rebelde, but which is better modulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13899, 13831, 13766, 13634, 13567, 13501, 13434, approx. frequencies of extremely distorted FM spurblobs out of the 13700-AM transmitter, August 28 at 1328, so RHC-FM has been reactivated at ~67 kHz intervals, first time heard in about a month. Helps that fundamental is extremely strong at S9+30/40. All including 13700 still have that F# tone above C middle, and only the tone can be detected at the furthest ones out. The four closest and very strong ones are quite readable with FM tuning. Recheck at 1320, just a trace at 13634 & 13766, tho 13700 is still S9+30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1945, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Aug 28 at 0605, VON is finally back on, with the bigsig Hausa hour, S9+20; had not been heard for at least a dekaday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1945, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1944 monitoring: presumed final play on WRMI, Tuesday August 28 at 2030 on 5950 and 7780 not checked here, but Mark Coady in Ontario says 7780 was ``extremely weak``.

** U S A. 7490v, UT Wed Aug 29 at 0140, WBCQ is off, as apparently since at least August 25, Blalock the Blaster is no longer running daily at 0100. Except UT Thu will probably still run Hal Turner instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.83, UT Wed Aug 29 at 0146, this WBCQ has been turned on for presumed `Amateur Radio Roundtable` with W5KUB, but too far down in the noise to copy; while 5085, WTWW-2 is inbooming with another ham show. It`s no accident, as when W5KUB pulled off WTWW, Ted retaliated by putting his own QSO show on at the same time ~45 kHz away. Unfortunately, QSO wins by strength, but ARR also has a video webcast. Otherwise, 5130- is now off most of the time with no more BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
