Hauser
** ANGUILLA. 6090, Aug 27 at 0626, Caribbean Beacon is still off like earlier this evening, even tho it`s UT Monday when normally active running all night. But who needs it? 5935 WWCR is VG S9+20. Day frequency 11775 also off at 1404 check. 6090 still off Aug 28 circa 0045 when it is normally on for a few more hours into UT Tuesday. Still no sign of it here on MW 1610, nor has anyone else reported it to my knowledge (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 11686, Aug 27 at 1955, approx. center of big dirty distorted FM blob spanning some 10 kHz --- I bet it`s RNA/RNB way out of whack again, and indeed missing from 11780-AM (but there is a JBA carrier, presumed VOA Botswana until 2000). R75 reads 11686 S5-S6 in FM mode, S7-S8 in AM mode. Even in FM tuning, it`s very distorted but partially readable, improving at fade-ups.

At 2000 yes, it`s Brazuguese, mentions ``Nacional`` ID and news headlines; 2003 mentions RÃdio Nacional AmazÃnia, 2004 listing a number of kHz of outlets, but certainly not this one!! 11686 is 94 kHz down from 11780, so I wonder if there will be another FM blob 2 x 94 = 188 kHz down around 11592? There is a noise peak, but probably unrelated, and no others found in or around 25m. Recheck at 2054, still 11686 and gaining strength, and still no 11780.

11686-FM not rechecked again until 0020 UT August 28, and is still there at S9. This time I`m on the NRD-545 which seems to demodulate the FM distortion a bit more clearly. At 0038 the DJs are greeting Boa Vista, Roraima (now overflowing with Venezuelan refugees), and also to camioneros all over Brasil (truck drivers; they should all be equipped with MotobrÃs SW radios). 0056 talking about ParÃ. RNA will probably remain on 11686 until s/off, circa 0300*? But what about tomorrow? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Aug 27 at 0626, RHC English (presumed) is a JJBBA carrier, while 6165, 6060 and 6000 are merely JBA carriers, as major geomag storm has blacked out signals even as far south as 23 degrees north beyond the Tropic of Cancer, like all of Cuba. Not blaming RHC this time; or should I? TN signals on 5935 & 5830, further north and less than half as far, remain S9+10 to 20, while in some other less disturbed nightmiddles, they are losing out as Cuba remains (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Monday August 27 at 1404, Radio Martà is running atop jamming, after another weekend off, as it starts its third week on this new frequency honoring Fidel. Recheck 2055, it is also *still* colliding directly with RHC which started 11860 in April, the two making a SAH of about 6 Hz, and taking turns fading up & down vs the other, and now not much noise jamming audible. Yet there are plenty of open frequencies on 25m. How much longer will this go on? A battle to the death --- or no one at either service notices and/or cares? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11980, Aug 28 at 0035, JBA carrier with traces of talk, RHC spur? I try but just too weak, can`t make a modulation match to loud 12000; but I do compute that this could well be a leapfrog of RHC 11700 over 11840 (which are both confirmed on & strong), another 140 kHz higher; a new one for me. No fundamentals on 11980 are known at this hour to HFCC or Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 5040, Aug 28 at 0042, RHC is AWOL from this but 5025 Rebelde is VG with bÃisbol. Its only 5+ MHz companion is 5010 WRMI, always weak, as no US stations are to be heard on 5050 WWRB, 5085 WTWW, nor 5130 WBCQ! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6870, Aug 28 at 0027, weak AM carrier, off & on, up to S7-S8, off & on again, 0028 song starts; still at 0050 hard rock. Only two reports here,
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,45484.0.html
the first one saying it`s Mix Radio at 0125-0157+, no one having heard it earlier when I did --- if it`s the same one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1944 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday August 28 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+35. Next:
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1945?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1945?]

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Aug 27 at 0626, WTWW-1 is on at S9+10 despite blackout reaching Cuba; by 1405, has switched to 9475; by 0032 August 28, already back to 5830, in highly variable day/night QSY times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, UT Monday Aug 27 at 0048, no signal from Caribbean Beacon, which is normally active on UT Mondays and Tuesdays only. I think I did hear 11775 earlier during the day on Sunday Aug 26 as I tuned around, but not logged. That should also be on daytime Aug 27. See also USA: WWCR 5935 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9630.5, Aug 27 at 0051, very poor signal in Brazuguese, R. Aparecida, one of few signals on band during propagation disturbance, stronger than 9395 & 9955 WRMI degraded to JBA carriers, but less than 9570, CRI via Albania at S4-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 6173.92, Aug 27 at 0049, JBA carrier on the signature off-frequency of Radio Tawantinsuyo, which Anker Petersen recently confirmed active using a South American SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA [and non]. 11904.9, August 27 at 0055, SLBC is S1 but some S Asian music audible, better than I usually hear it from *0031v. It also cuts off early during song at 0058:09*. Strange trans-polar propagation as not yet recovered from major geomag storm. Not much else on 25m except 11780 Brasil the SSOB at S5-S7 but undermodulated, and stronger than any attenuated Cubans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1944 monitoring: confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485-CUSB, August 26:
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2018/08/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_26.html
1030-1100 on 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, weak to fair; Wrong frequency announcement:"...HLR SW Sce on 7265 kHz", instead of 9485!``

Major geomagnetic storm and aftermath made the already weak 7780 WRMI a JBA carrier or less, for the scheduled WOR times, so unconfirmed Sunday August 26 at 2130 and UT Monday August 27 at 0130.5; but the latter also on 5850, still propagating very well and confirmed there. (The normally inbooming other 7s from WRMIBS, 7570 & 7730 are also quite weakened.) WOR also confirmed UT Monday August 27 starting at 0302 on Area 51 webcast; 0327 check of 5129.8 WBCQ finds a JBA carrier. 9955 WRMI was JBA carrier too, virtually inaudible, so not checked further, but 0330 WOR confirmed during WRMI webcast at 0345, and also at 0427 for the immediate webcast-only playback from 0400 --- but the webcast audio is way low, barely registering but quite audible with volume all the way up. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1945?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1945?]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7570, Aug 26 at 2337, surprised to hear WRMI in Spanish here, gospel huxter. Supposed to be Overcomer from 2300, and has been only in English whenever on. Maybe FÃmily Radio which this hour is supposed to be on 5010 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5935, Aug 27 at 0045, WWCR with PMS from TUN, but mixed with crackling which splatters up to 10 kHz plus and minus. Meanwhile, Anguilla 6090 is missing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, Aug 27 at 0059, dead air, then YL opening gospel huxter show from North Carolina, but hard to understand very lofi modulation, then cutting out and in. S9+50 signal anyway from WWRB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 830, UT Monday Aug 27 at 0108 UT, Spanish tropi-rap (real term for particular genre unknown), 0111 YL ID as ``Fabulosa, 830 y 97.5``, which means it`s the expected WFNO Norco LA (address in Metairie), 5000/750 watts U4, and the FM is mere translator K248BB. Totally dominating channel, no sign of WCCO MN, too far into the subauroral zone with high K-index (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 840, UT Monday Aug 27 at 0106 UT, opening headlines teasing `Perspective` from ABC, YL anchor, stingers. Haven`t heard this weekly newsmagazine in ages. Must be WHAS Louisville KY, perhaps a reliable time for it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, re my unID jazz station August 26 at 0635 UT, Greg Hardison, CA, replies: ``Glenn, anything is possible from WAZX Smyrna, GA. Remote monitoring has shown this thing to be on one day, silent the next, then on again, et al. -- with programming in Spanish, Vietnamese, continuous Classic Rock, et al, et al. Nothing is keeping WAZX from trying its hand at Jazz (which would be a notable improvement to the highly religious/right wing Atlanta AM dial); the 50 kW daytime authorization does get out rather well. Just sayin'. - GREG HARDISON`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** CUBA. 7435, Aug 26 at 0026, pulse jamming against nothing, since R. Martà switches 7365 to this frequency only between 03 and 05. Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Aug 26 at 0628, again tonight modulation on this RHC English frequency is suptorted, as AC starts his science bit about Cuba being concerned over rising sea levels caused by polar melting. Something`s always wrong at RHC. // 6060 is best at S9+10/20 with good modulation; // 6100 and 6165 middling mod but not suptorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, Aug 26 at 0630, RNZ is S9+10/20 with heavy flutter! A rarity on this trans-equatorial signal, tnx to major geomag storm with K-index of 7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Aug 26 at 0629, again no signal from VON, still presumed off, altho current K index of 7 might be enough to take out even this low-latitude super signal aimed USward. But NZ is in one minute later, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Aug 26 at 1334, WRMI playing ``Up2 & Away``, part of the World Music fill loop, so the scheduled Sunday 1330 program, `Word for the World` has failed to fire (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday August 26 at 0626, WTWW-2 is on with weekly talkshow, but VP reception, barely registers S9, same as noise level. Normally this blasts in the nightmiddle. Other TN frequencies in the megameter range: 5830 WTWW JBA; 4840 & 5935 WWCR also VP. 3215 might still make it, except WWCR made it dispensable overnight and silenced it months ago. We are in a major geomagnetic storm, G3 level past and next 24 hours, WWV reported, a rare K-index reading of 7 at 0600!

5830, Aug 26 at 1422, WTWW-1 night frequency still running with SFAW; K index eased to 5 by 1500. Back up to 6 at 1800, but now 9475 is propagating, not much on higher bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Aug 26 at 0027, WHRI with hymn and free-Bible offer, inserted during VOV relay block; 0030, back to its stilted LVV Spanish. Strange bedfellows (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1550, Aug 26 at 0635 UT, continuous piano jazz amid the CCI. Not KUAZ AZ which is 50 kW but daytimer; unlikely WZUM PA which is 24h jazz format but only 4 watts at night! Last March 24 at 0607 UT I also had unID 1550 scat, and guessed maybe CBEF = CBC French Windsor Ont. Of all nights, nothing from north to be expected now with K index of 7. Unlikely any of the Mexicans. 1550 is full of Rebeldes all over Cuba (and a few Progresos) to block WRHC, so I should have compared to 5025. Any other ideas about US stations? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. Re my not finding the Unique Radio website, which is about to carry WOR via WINB on Saturdays at 1230 on 9265V, Tim Gaynor explains: ``My site is http://www.uniqueradio.podomatic.com or go to google and search uniqueradio + podomatic``. Thence you can play 2-hour podcasts of the latest and previous broadcasts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11856.9, Aug 26 at 0102, weak music vs stray pulse jamming, but tnx to OG&E AC power outage, blanking all household and area sources, noise level is low enough to make out some Brazuguese intonation, so presumed R. Aparecida now varied up to here on sporadic schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, PL-880 and interior reelout, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910+ & 6010v, Aug 25 at 0351, not even JBA carriers from the HJDH stations. AlcaravÃn Radio circa 5910.3 was better heard when sometimes on, early or late evening here. Last report of 5910.23 was July 23 from Bob Wilkner, FL as in DXLD 18-31.

Another check, Aug 26 at 0040, no carrier around 5910, but a JBA carrier circa 6010. That could be Brasil, which has been reported active. No other broadcasters scheduled now, despite Aoki/NDXC still including long-defunct XEOI MÃxico!

Just in time, as at 0042 neighborhood AC power failed; I immediately summoned OG&E and it was back on at 0155, so the full moon was nice but not required (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Aug 25 at 2156, wall-of-noise jamming atop somestation with fair carrier but undermodulated, Spanish, or? Of course, it`s Cuban jamming Cuban, since R. Martà is not on today Saturday, as confirmed after 1400 when it appears on weekdays. And the broadcast signal soon cuts off about 2157, as RHC would do but not RM. Yet EiBi says RHC 11860 is supposed to stay in Spanish from 2100 to 2300. Something`s always wrong at RHC and the DentroCuban Jamming Command.

11840, Aug 25 at 2157, RHC Spanish is equally undermodulated here, along with plus/minus 10 much weaker parasites. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But see below

11880, Aug 25 at 2158, RHC Spanish instead of English they sometimes utter before 2200 here when into scheduled French. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

11930, Aug 25 at 2159, meanwhile, R. Martà is really here and way atop the JBA jamming level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGST)

** CUBA. 11830 & 11850, Aug 26 at 0104, parasitic spurs out of RHC 11840 transmitter are each 100% readable during AC power outage, on PL-880 and interior reelout. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 13645-13650-13655, Aug 25 at 1714, DRM at S3 but shortly after I tune in, vanishes. R. Kuwait in Arabic supposedly from 1700 to 2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sunday August 26 at 0020, The Mighty KBC via Nauen, GERMANY, is missing! Oh, now I hear a JBA carrier, from that, or what? Might be propped out, except other Europeans are sufficient: 9420 Greece S5-S7; 9570 Albania S6-S8! Another check at 0136 during power outage, on DX-398 and internal reel-out: still JBA carrier.

It`s almost time for KBC`s traditional QSY to lower band in September; HFCC has alternates reserved: 5960, 6040, 6145; which will it be? Have heard nothing about this year`s plans. Or had they already moved this week? I did not check these (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6959.94, Aug 26 at 0022, JBA carrier here is only trace of a possible pirate this Saturday evening, nothing else 6770-7000. Many 6960 logs here, one on 6959.95, say it`s Radio Illuminati between 2358 and 0051*:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,45436.0.html

6935-USB, Aug 26 at 0107, soul music, pause and 0108 ``Wolverine Radio`` ID. Finally some pirate axion! During AC power outage, on PL-880 and interior reelout (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 15435, Aug 25 at 1710, BSKSA, S9 to S9+5 VG in Arabic talk; and 15205 Qur`an program at S7-S9; along with 15140 RHC extension they are the SSOB; quite a pipeline from SA. Also at 1714 on 13710 > // 15205 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1944 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday August 26 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, but too much storm noise to calculate presumed start time; also seems somewhat undermodulated. Next:
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE [NEWish]
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 0400 WRMI webcast only, non-direxional
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1945?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1945?]

** U S A. 9395, Saturday August 25 at 2200, WRMI opening VORW and // much weaker 7780, in this (still secret?) repeat (and 11580 remains off). Previously circa 2144, 9395 played Oldies, and 7780 VP sounded like Biermann with His Weekend Show; another gospel huxter on 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.9, 12105, 9930, 9475, 5830, 5085, Aug 25 at 1706, all possible WTWW frequencies are off. (This will be a problem for Mark Taylor, NASWA Flashsheet editor, who, when I start a report with a frequency missing, for that entry pulls out another frequency from inside the report which is not missing, hi). Thus I am reporting *nothing*, but that`s the point: it`s totally off the air now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Aug 25 at 2358, WTWW-2 as Bob Heil is wrapping up `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` really running at its new time I have almost forgotten again this week to check, 2330 Saturday. I wonder if he is keeping it to less than 30 minutes now? This early, strong signal is not enough to overcome storm noise from TX panhandle, NM, KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, Aug 25 at 1717, WEWN Spanish coverage of some live event with crowd applause, music in background, rather Irish --- of course, it`s the popal about-to visit, live coverage from the Croke stadium in Dublin. The anchors are pushing for listener e-mail response, plugging EWTN and Radio CatÃlica Mundial. Furthermore, WEWN is splattering roughly 12040-12080! Later I watch EWTN cable TV for a bit to see that a bro in a monk`s habit and a normally dressed gal are co-hosting, with Catholic reverence. Set aside that many millions are being spent on this PR event to celebrate the corrupt, disgraced RC church, rather than compensate its victims.

à propos, see this week`s lead editorial by William Falk, The Week:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5044/5056, UT Sunday Aug 26 at 0035, WWRB 5050 is putting noiseblob spurs peaking about plus/minus 6 from 5050 during anti-UN ranters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4810, Aug 26 at 0039, still getting a JBA carrier vs the huge utehash from the plus side. So is it Radio Logos, PerÃ? Please check in South America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 15745, Aug 25 at 1359, Chinese, S5-S8 with very heavy flutter, 5-pip timesignal and off 1400*. It`s CNR1 jammer vs RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan at 11-14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Aug 25 at 0251, RHC Spanish is suptorted here and likewise English on 6000; 5025 Rebelde is even more suptorted, while 6165 RHC English and 6060 RHC Spanish are OK. Presumably a problem with one of the studio-transmitter linx. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. At 0606 after 5040 is off, 6000 remains suptorted while 6060, 6100 and 6165 are OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860, Friday August 24 at 2202 check, nothing but wall-of-noise jamming, as Radio Martà and/or RHC must have just signed off --- but let`s keep jamming just in case!

11860, Saturday August 25 at 1409, still/again nothing but WON jamming, as Radio Martà is again absent this weekend. Or rather, any vestige of Saudi/Yemen is totally blocked instead. Tnx a lot, Arnie! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15410.000, Aug 25 at 1404, Chinese with flutter, right on frequency. Aoki/NDXC shows CRI this hour only, via Kashi-Saiba, a.k.a. Kashgar. Not // 15110 Chinese since that`s a CNR1 jammer against VOA Philippines (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Aug 25 at 0604, JJBBA carrier. As explained before, can`t be anything but Radio Kiribati. BTW, this is not in WRTH 2018 as its reactivation came after presstime. It could be audible eastward an hour or sesqui earlier with local sunset, making much further NZ even unlikelier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 15714.872, Aug 25 at 1400, S4-S5 with flutter, music and Chinese. Aoki/NDXC shows at 14-15 it`s AWR in Chinese via Trincomalee. And it`s way off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1944 monitoring: still not aired anyday at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v, including Friday Aug 24.

NOTE: Tim Gaynor of Unique Radio, NSW, has invited WORLD OF RADIO onto his relay block via WINB 9265, starting next Saturday, Sept 1, at 1230-1300. Thanks, Tim! That will finally give SW listeners a chance to hear us on Saturdays. See also USA: WINB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265V, Sat Aug 25 at 1254, hit soft rock tune of long ago, 1257 Tim Gaynor from NSW signing off Unique Radio relay. Carrier is *really* wobbling, must listen on AM, not SSB; but it averages out to 9265.00. I had been looking for current website, unfound, but he says it: http://www.uniqueradio.automatic.com --- or so I thought, but that goes nowhere; or is it automagic? Not either. See also WORLD OF RADIO! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Aug 24 at 1738, the BST-1 caradio memory scan stops on 5830 (why did I ever set it there?), i.e. WTWW-1 is *still* on night frequency at midday! I had previously noted it on late at 1419, instead of day frequency 9475. Ted must have failed to make the switch today, not that unusual. At 0254 UT August 25, neither 5830 nor 9475 is on, but 5085 WTWW-2 is with rock. At 0352, 5830 is on again, but 0601 off again, along with 5085; not due to propagation as neighbor 5935 WWCR is well audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6870-AM, Aug 25 at 0256 S9/S9+10 open carrier. Could WRMI be thinking of resuming this WOOB frequency? Not in Jeff`s HFCC. Or pirate? or ute? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1602 UT August 25
