** CHINA [and non]. 14900, June 18 at 1333, Chinese at S3-S6, CNR1
jammer only, // 15165 heavy mix with VOA Chinese. Also JBA on 14700.
13130 & 13070 at 1346 JBA carriers; 12880 at 1351, big S8/S9+10 //
11785. All these are accounted for in EiBi and/or Aoki/NDXC as CNR1
jammers on Sound of Hope frequencies, except 14700. 12455 at 1352, JBA
carrier too but write this one off since it`s 1390 KCRC kHz below
13845 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, June 18 at 0546, RHC in English at S9+20 but again with
big hum --- wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RNC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, June 18 at 0545, TGAV Radio Verdad is back, VP
signal vs noise level; despite transmitter ``collapse``. It seems it
was just a blown fuse, but of course that could still indicate a
bigger problem. Manuel Méndez, Spain, received this early UT June 18
from Dr Madrid:

``I have good news: Radio Truth is on the air with full power. After
some checking, I decided to start transmitter. When I put power on,
there happened a strong explosion on Module B, but transmitter went on
the air with 300 watts power. Then I installed a spare Module, and it
came on the air with full power. I still need to get the 15 A, 600 V.
thermal fuse though. I adapted a regular 15 A, 250 V fuse for the mean
time. That`s a very difficult fuse to get in Guatemala. I will keep
you informed. May God bless you. Édgar Amílcar Madrid, Radio Truth``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 12923-CW, June 18 at 1346, a rare CQ marker: CQ CQ CQ
DE HLW2 HLW2 HLW2 QSX 12 MHZ K. That`s Seoul Radio as in EiBi, but
call shown as innumeric HLW only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 18 at 0551, VON on early again with song
accompanied by thumb piano, S9+10/20, but 0552 cut to humbuzz, off and
on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, June 18 at 0559, WBCQ-6 bigsig ending ``Dixie``, ID
and rock music; 0604 ``Heart of Gold`` song. 0606 replay another song
I remember hearing the previous afternoon; if only I could make out my
dozy scribbling of its title. Mauno Ritola says this ran until 1000
switch to old transmitter.

9330.124, June 18 at 1421, TOM music same as on 9395 WRMI so once
again in the mornings, back to classic transmitter, off the Super6.

9330.000, June 18 at 2108, WBCQ-6 on again at S9+10/20 with an AWWW
playback when he was talking about trains --- Monticello had a
passenger station until ~1953y; later a lengthy conversation with J.P.
On the phone about eroding privacy due to internet. Not checked again
until 0007 UT June 19 with rock music. More of that not checked again
until 0440 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, June 18 at 1353, WEWN Spanish is poor S7 but no FM
spurs on the high side, evidently fixed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0502 UT June 19

** CUBA. 6100, UT Monday June 17 at 0620, RHC English S9+20/30 but
suptorted; I can tell it`s Arnie but combined with his slurred speech
it`s really hard to understand what he is saying on `DXers Unlimited`.
// 6165 is weaker but a bit clearer. 6060 & 6000 are OFF. 5040 is
still on and in English, S9+20 but with a big hum --- and in a few
seconds, modulation stops except for the hum, as I guess the
sloppyrators are finally about to turn it off late. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, June 17 at 1350, RHC is VP only S6-S8, unusually much
weaker than // 13700 at S9+10/20. At least neither is off-frequency
nor putting out spurs. But something`s still always wrong at RHC. 1351
starts `Estampas de Cuba` show which is not about stamps --- altho run
across for years, appears nowhen on program sked
http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/programacion
nor via audio on demand archive:
http://www.radiohc.cu/audios
A truly secret show! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1986 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
June 16 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, JBA.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 17 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, good, following
the crazy ``SonPower Radio on 5850, 7455 and 9395`` ID.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 17 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, JBA.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 17 from 0302 on WBCQ-6, 9330.00, during
a SuperStation test carrying Area 51 programming; VG S9+30/40!! while
on original 5130.371 it`s JBA. Unfortunately there is no assurance or
expectation that any WOR on 9330 will become permanent.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 17 at 0330 on WRMI 9955; a few minutes
earlier it was S9+10.

Also confirmed Monday June 17 starting at 1816.30 on IRRS/NEXUS 7290
via Romania, VG via UTwente SDR, strong modulation, and no ACI or CCI.
Tuned in at 1814 to some talk about gout! And into Aïda theme before
WOR started, and ended at 1845:15; ID and 1846 Feature Story News from
London. After 1900 I noticed that Dan Roberts` Shortwave Report` was
playing, i.e. recordings of a few of his favorite stations; not a DX
show.

WOR 1986 also confirmed UT Tuesday June 18 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA.
Next:

0800 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [2 editions]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v [and/or 2130]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday
cycle, so freshest new airings are on weekends]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, June 16 at 2103, WBCQ-6 is back on testing, S9+25
with gospel huxter, ID, rock music; while 7490+ is JBA at the Sunday
hour scheduled for `Marion`s Attic` which is unlistenable most of the
year on that lower daytime frequency. Too bad it`s not appearing on
9330 --- retune at 2114, now old music, as `Attic` has been picked up,
late! Enough bigsig into the NRD-545 for AMS wideband listening ---
but in this case, it just boosts the scratches on the inherently lo-fi
music. VG except for some selective fading. Presumably well over 100
kW, but no news yet that WBCQ has run the new Continental at fullbore
500 kW.

No time here for continuous listening, so I wonder if the next 7490
program, `UBMP`, followed on 9330 at 2200? Harry Shearer`s `Le Show`
would be next at 2300, but must not have been as no such closing on
9330 before 2400.

At 0000 UT Monday June 17, 9330 starting `Johnny Lightning`, so now
it`s duplicating Area 51 programming fromo 5130+v. Spot chex during
next trihour show he`s live and aware he`s also on 9330 this week.

We were hoping A51 would stick past 0300, since that would put WORLD
OF RADIO on 9330 --- and so it did, starting slightly late at 0302;
and HRI followed, but at 0400 there is disco music for an hour (?).
After 0500 ID and old `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback from the era
when Angela was merely his girlfriend; but you never know if or when
he will mention the current YOOL date of the original live broadcast.

9330.00 at 0616 is still on with rock music at S9+20/30, strongest
signal on band.

9330.14, June 17 at 1305 next check, now back to the ``classic``
transmitter, off-frequency with Brother Scare. Which number applies to
it?

9330.00, June 17 at 2100 is next check, now on caradio, when #6 is
back on with another `AWWW` playback, but cosmikdebris and Jane
substituting, originally on March 29, 2019 as conveniently announced
at the outset. First topic is the HAARP tests by Amanda Dawn Christie,
then current. As usual, when Larry Will is doing it, he plays a good
deal of music during the hour, which AW never does. VG signal has no
trouble stopping the BST-1 memory scan.

Unchecked what appeared in the 22-23 hour, but at 2300, ``WTO`` again
and 2303 AW himself starting another WW playback, this time with date
April 4. 2019, ``didn`t want to get political, but ---`` initial rant
against income tax, which he says is illegal since the XVI Amendment
was never ratified by enough states. Really?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_protester_Sixteenth_Amendment_arguments

The hour before 0100 UT June 18 has more rock music; at 0100 yet
another `AWWW` playback, starting with cabinet resignations in Canada
some months ago, which Canadian Angela should have been following.
Concludes with `news` that Brother Stair is out of jail. 0200 back to
rock music.

AW`s twits and WBCQ website are not giving any info about 9330
programming during these tests. Program guide is even more out of date
than before, claiming e.g. that WOR is on 9330 almost daily at 2330,
which stopped well over a year ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 12060-12120 approx., June 16 at 2112, WEWN-FM still here
peaking around 12078 at S7-S5, Spanish, while correct AM frequency
12050 is only S1-S4. Most of the power is going out on this horrible
spur. Night frequency in Spanish 5970 has no such problems, a
different transmitter. Kai Ludwig says, ``I'd say the error pattern
points at the modulator as culprit``,

12065-12095 approx., June 17 at 1309, WEWN-FM centered a bit higher
around 12085, Spanish and music, vs VOA Korean 12080; while WEWN 12050
is JBA.

There has been a lot of discussion of this on the WOR iog, and I have
forwarded some of it to Glen Tapley at WEWN. Finally started getting
replies June 17, culminating at 1648 with:

``Glenn, Appreciate your info. Can your contacts take another look
this afternoon? I think we may have it under control but would
appreciate feedback. Thanks, Glen``

Such as this from Jim Barrett - Elmira, NY, who has been following
this major problem closely, to the WOR io group:

``At 1815 UT Jun 17, WEWN 12050 noted on my local SDR in the
northeastern US with clean modulation, though a somewhat weak signal.
Perhaps they had to cut back overall transmitter power to prevent the
distortion. Checked the KiwiSDR in Key West, FL where it is a bit
stronger`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

which are against Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

offset, but I can`t imagine R. Quillabamba could do that or even be on
air at this hour. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, June 15 at 0545, no signal from TGAV, Radio
Verdad, normally on air until about 0615*. That`s because the
transmitter ``collapsed`` per this from Dr. Madrid:

CC of a message to Ralph Wayne Borthwick, VA7GF, the engineer who has
repaired Radio Truth transmitter in the past:

``Last night by 8:30 pm (Guatemala time) [0230 UT June 14], Radio
Truth's Short Wave transmitter collapsed. It was not raining, neither
any other abnormal situation. I made the diagnose this morning, and am
attaching the results. The situation is not on my capacity, and we
need you to make the repairs. I still have to find a way to finance
your travel and repairs. I hope you are able to find a way to
Guatemala. Please unload the attachments with all details and
pictures. May God be with you. Yours in Christ.
Édgar Amílcar Madrid, Radio Truth, Chiquimula, Guatemala, C. A.``

On June 15, Dr Madrid replied to an inquiry from Manuel Mendez,
Spain:

``Yes, Radio Truth is off air from last night. Our transmitter was
burned out, and it is not on capacity to fix it. I have to wait until
Eng. Ralph Borthwick comes from Canada to fix it. I am trying to put
on the air a small anateur radio on on the meanwhile. I plan to
attempt that this afternoon. May God be with you, and keep tune.``

4055 again absent June 16 at 0557 check. Manuel forwards a further
reply on June 16:

``We may be off air for several weeks. I attempted to put on the air a
small transceiver today, but it didn´t work. We have to wait until
Ralph Borthwick is able to come to Guatemala.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** KUWAIT. 17550.563, June 15 at 2053, JBA carrier, probably R.
Kuwait`s Arabic to us, a widely variable/jumpable transmitter.
However, I can`t be 100% sure since computers in the house also
transmit such things all over the SW bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1986 monitoring: confirmed by Ivo
Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, June 15
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/06/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_15.html
0630-0659 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat, weak signal``

Noel R. Green in NW England replies on the WOR io group: ``Unlike
Ivo's reception, 6190 was better than usual strength this morning at
tune in towards the end of Glenn's WOR. The signal was reaching a S-9
level on my meter at times, but even so, it was a difficult to copy
signal due to the ever present local noise``

Not confirmed the next HLR broadcast, Sat June 16 at 1430 on
9485-CUSB; absolutely no trace audible via UTwente SDR, just huge
splash from 9490 Romania.

15770, June 15 at 2056, surprised to hear me in a routine bandscan.
Yes, now showing on the WRMI skedgrid is an additional WORLD OF RADIO
airing Saturdays at 2030 on 15770. First time on this frequency, I
think, aimed NE toward Europe, mostly with SMTV daytime, but
additional stuff tacked on before and after. Despite unfavorable
azimuth for us to the NW, has been coming in better with sporadic E
boosts. Not // 9395, the only other audible WRMI frequency; 7780 JBA
carrier.

WORLD OF RADIO 1986 further monitoring: immediately repeated Saturday
June 15 at 2100 on WRMI 9955 after IS & ID loop, but upcut JIP in
theme music, missing: ``This is Glenn Hauser, with WORLD OF RADIO
1986``. Fair-good but can also detect slight pulse jamming already.

Also confirmed, UT Sunday June 16 at 0140, the 0130 on WRMI 5850, very
good.

Due to severe storm noise could not confirm at 0330 UT Sunday June 16
on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, but probably my voice amid WOR.

** U S A. 9395, UT Sunday June 16 at 0000, WRMI with new program
``Radio for Peace International``, opening with faux timepips, IDs in
French, English at least, then into woman lexuring only in French.
Checked here tnx to tip from Alan Gale, England earlier June 15 to the
WOR io group:

Hi All, I just saw this on the WRMI Facebook page: Alan.

``New program in wrmi from Friday, June 14th

RADIO FOR PEACE INTERNATIONAL is being reactivated, although the new
RFPI is not related to the old one in Costa Rica. We will emit in
Short Wave on WRMI on frequencies of 15770 kHz on Friday at 2000-2100
UT for the Maghreb, 9395 kHz on Saturday at 2000-2100 hours Eastern
Time in North America (0000-0100 UT Sunday), and on 6070 kHz in Europe
and on our website http://www.rfpi.eu

You'll be able to listen to our podcast shows on i-tunes, youtube
podcasting platforms and on our facebook page.

The broadcasts will be structured around 45-50 minute conferences on
subjects that are related to peace, humanism, human rights,
sustainable development ...

The goal is not to impose a reality but to provide food for thought so
that everyone can walk in respect, listening, sharing in order to
build peace together``

Well, if it is unrelated to RFPI CR, this is not a ``reactivation``.
We were expecting this to start the week before, Friday June 7 at 2000
on 15770 when the air was dead instead.

Contrary to the above, Ivo Ivanov says these RFPI are monthly:
``2000-2100 15770 YFR 100 kW / 044 deg to WeEu French 2nd Fri
1900-2000 on 6070 ROB 010 kW / non-dir to CeEu French 2nd Sat
0000-0100 on 9395 YFR 100 kW / 355 deg to ENAm French 2nd Sun``

But, but, altho June 14 was the second Friday, June 15 and 16,
obviously? are the *third* Saturday and Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, June 16 at 1654, WBCQ-6 is on again, new
transmitter testing, with oldtime hymn, soon into Brother Scare
roarer; S9+10 with fading; much stronger than JBA 9265 WINB, 9395
WRMI, but even WBCQ cannot overcome the noise level. Recheck at 1754,
off again, neither 9330v transmitter detectable.

Manfred Korn in Stuttgart was also hearing AAAWWW June 16 between 04
and 05 on 9330, which must have been another #6 test (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12065-12120 approx., June 16 at 1348, WEWN Spanish with huge
loud spurblob audible over this range, best readable in FM mode (much
like the old RHC 13/15 MHz spurs which thankfully have not been heard
in months). Center is very approx. 12082-12083. There is also a very
weak S7-S9 AM signal on source 12050. Can`t even detect VOA Korean on
12080 until 1421 when a carrier is there under this mess.
Recheck at 1652: still readable only in Fm mode altho distorted, now
seems centered closer to 12078; 1755 recheck, same but weaker.

I notified Glen Tapley about this for the third time. This is very
like a previous report to the WOR io group by Jim Barrett:

``USA WEWN 12082 v 12085 11 Jun 2019 1400 UTC to 20:50 UTC --- Since
the 1400 scheduled sign-on of WEWN Spanish service on 12050, the
transmission has actually been centered on (approximately) 12082. The
audio is very distorted, and demodulates best in NBFM mode on my
KiwiSDR. No question that it is WEWN. In listening I have heard many
mentions of “Radio Católica Mundial”, and a dialog about Marian
devotions.

In the meantime, 12050 is completely in the clear, and I believe I am
hearing Radio Ndarason International from Tchad. Pop music and dialogs
in what sounds very much like an African language. Being received well
at 2058, though scheduled 2100 sign-off is fast approaching. Jim
Barrett, Elmira, NY``.

Meanwhile Jim has filed another report today at 1746 matching my obs,
which I forward to Tapley as his fourth notice:

``WEWN 12050, still major problems --- Sunday June 16 - WEWN is still
suffering major problems with distorted modulation on their 12050 kHz
Spanish service beginning at 1400 UT and continuing to the present
time (1745).

There is a weak carrier on 12050, with a very small amount of AM
modulation, but the bulk of the RF energy is concentrated in a broad,
highly distorted sideband centered (at this time) at about 12078,
though it drifts up and down somewhat. Even using very broad filters
on my RSP1A SDR, I can’t recover any useable audio in any mode - AM,
USB/LSB or FM.

I noted the transmitter was off air all day Wednesday and Thursday
June 12 and 13, and thought that station engineers might be working on
whatever technical problem might be causing this, but when it returned
to the air Friday, the same problem noted earlier in the week was
still present.

It’s possible that fixing the problem might require parts not
currently available, but I’m surprised that they continue running this
broadcast despite the obvious malfunction. They are certainly not in
compliance with FCC requirements for frequency stability or
modulation/spectral purity. This is not RHC. Jim Barrett - Elmira, NY

UNIDENTIFIED. 88.7 WBFM, June 15 circa 1730 UT on caradio, KLVV Ponca
City OK has CCI from something, very unusual. Dxmaps.com do not show
sporadic E MUF now anywhere near 88 MHz. It`s not KWTU Tulsa, only 5
kW, since the QRM is not classical music. In Kansas there are four
88.7s, all of them very low power and not near. That leaves the most
likely possibility per WTFDA FM Database:
