** ANTARCTICA [non]. The annual BBCWS winter solstice special for the
British Antarctic Survey is coming up next Friday June 21, and we have
been expecting a dry-run frequency test sometime during the preceding
week. Ivo Ivanov got the details to the WOR iog several hours ahead,
to pick the best three out of four:

June 14 at 2130-2145, so I try all four frequencies here at 2135:
7360-Ascension, JBA carrier; 9455-Woofferton, JBA S4-S6 not WRMI;
5990-UAE, JBA carrier; 5875 Woofferton, JJBBA carrier. About as
expected here way off the target.

Then at 2139 I check the same via UTwente SDR, and hear an interview
about football, maybe regular BBCWS programming at the moment: 7360
good but with pervasive Ascension hum --- Kai Ludwig wonders if that
would disqualify it? Not at all, one or two ASC transmitters remain in
full service this way, hums to Africa often audible. 9455 good with no
hum; 5875 very good; 5990 UAE however is VP, JBA back in Europe (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11500, 11460, 11440, 11120, June 14 at 1253, and 12800 at
1259, all CNR1 jammers JBA as on the Aoki/NDXC jammed Sound of Hope
roster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, June 14 at 0527, RHC in Spanish instead of English as
scheduled this hour --- maybe deliberately since there is no 49mb
Spanish all evening with 6060 transmitter gone for weeks. A breakdown,
or inexplicable scheduling change? As for what`s left of English, at
0522: 6165 S9+10 and JBM, 6100 best, 6000 undermodulated. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.240, June 14 at 1301, RHC self-knocked way
off-frequency again today after quite a normal spell on 13740.00,
while // 13700 remains .00. Something or other is always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 9860, June 14 at 0505, R. Japan ID amid news in
English, good S9+10 to S8, VATICAN relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7485, June 14 at 0429, anti-Christ pirate, Station
YHWH slid up to here probably to avoid ute QRM on 7480; S9+10 vs
considerable fading and noise. Still screeding past 0502, later than
usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1986 monitoring: confirmed first US
SWBC, Friday June 14 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, good S9+10/S9 and no
jamming. Also confirmed at 0150 the 0130 UT Saturday June 15 on WRMI
7780, fair in storm noise level. Next:

** U S A. 9330+, June 14 at 0428, Brother Scare on WBCQ, switched back
to the old off-frequency transmitter, after having been on the new
exact one when last checked at 0136, which was second night of testing
it, but briefer and boringer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.1, UT Sat June 15 at 0002, WBCQ with ``William Tell
Overture`` theme to `Allan and Angela Weiner WorldWide``, S9+10/20 but
plenty of storm noise; also on 9330.1 ``classic`` transmitter, S9-S7,
somewhat less noise but also less signal, so S/N is slightly better on
the lower. AW says on all four frequencies tonight, but nothing
audible vs noise level on 5130+ or 3265-.

Quickly interrupted by a caller somewhere who I think was saying not
heard on 5130. Allan says the new Continental transmitter issue has
been fixed. Thalès in France air-shipped a replacement tube ring,
which was the part that broke and leaked water. Now it has interlock
issues --- won`t operate if there is any HV danger, apparently false
positives? At this point, 0009 it`s time for me to leave for tonight`s
Enid Chautauqua performance by ``Che Guevara`` --- the actor needs
some more Spanish pronunciation instruxion.

Over to John Carver for his full report on tonight`s AAAWWW:

``Tonight's show started a few seconds early on 7490 after some fill
music. Comments over the theme said that they were broadcasting on all
frequencies this evening and there were issues with the new
transmitter. Allan and Angela in the studio. A phone call immediately
from Freddie with questions about the transmitter. Allan said that the
transmitter has been repaired after the water leak but antenna work
was ongoing.

He said that now there was a problem with the interlock mechanism on
the transmitter. Says he would like to have a transmitter that could
operate more than twelve hours before shutting down. Says it's all
damn digital crap. Way too many computers involved. He stated that for
three million dollars the damn thing should work.

He's still shooting for a start date of July 1 but says that if
antenna work isn't finished they will only be broadcasting at night so
the work on the antenna can continue during the day.

Phone call at 0029 from Canada with questions about receivers and
antennas in general. Phone call at 0039 from Ramsey commenting on the
signal strength during this past week's tests. Phone call at 0049 from
Bill Smith in prison. Says he's getting out of prison this next
Wednesday. Reading of emails at 0054 along with another phone call
from Freddie. Allan asks him to hold on so he can read the emails.
Closing prayer at 0100.

Allan mentions that 3265 will only be running Friday, Saturday and
Sundays because of operating expense. Program was off the air at 0104.
7490 was off the air at 0111 after some more music. John Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6230, June 12 at 0608, JBA carrier detectable from the RHC
leapfrog mixing product of 6100 over 6165 another 65 kHz beyond. Both
just barely modulated, but enough signal for leaping, S9+20 and S9+10
respectively. Meanwhile, the other scheduled English frequencies, 6060
and 6000 are both OFF. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, June 12 at 1409, this RHC sounds dead air, but by
straining, JBM; while // 15140 is OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550, June 12 at 2058, R. Kuwait, music, best heard yet
achieving S5, fading to S2. We should log this every day while we can
at midsummer, since the other 10-11 months will be totally inaudible,
hi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, June 12 at 0610, S9 of hilife music, as R. Mali is
sufficiently modulated and no RHC aside 6000 to bother it (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 12 at 0606, VON is on at S9+10/20 but
undermodulated; BTW, 24 hours earlier June 11, when I found it to be
off, Ivo Ivanov had it instead on 9689.9 where I did not check, but
has happened before. Also at this same time June 12, he reports the
DRM transmitter was also active with Hausa on 15119.9. Alan Roe
suggests it was for a special occasion, National Democracy Day (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, June 13 at 1302-1304*, S9+10 open carrier, typical
Greenville-B morning day shift transmitter test on a frequency
scheduled much later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1985 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday June 12 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S8-S3, not cutting on late.
Simulcast on WBCQ 7490+ is JBA such that I can`t calculate how many
seconds apart the playbax may be.

Also confirmed UT Thursday June 13 after 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair.

Also confirmed UT Thursday June 13 from 0205 on WBCQ Superstation test
on 9330.00, very good. Surprise airing thanks to Larry Will.

** U S A. 9329.999, June 12 at 2334, WBCQ superstation test is
on-frequency, maybe really 9330.000 within my margin of error, and
very strong S9+20/30 with rock music. Tnx to tip from Ethan Best who
first reported it to the WOR iog at 2225. Then it`s heard all over
North America with VG signals. Likewise at 0045 June 13 on our BST-1
caradio. Programming from Area 51 was being used for the test, so
Larry Will included WORLD OF RADIO 1985 at 0205, thanks! This
continued into the night with no loss of signal; 0511 check S9+20/30
with anti-fag comments, maybe a parody; 0614 an Allan Weiner Worldwide
playback. AW said power was 150 kW on antenna beam like the other
WBCQs, 250 degrees WSW toward TX and Mexico. The test was a surprise,
as on the latest AWWW he had foreseen testing not until last week of
June. And now planned to run it again the next day.

9330, however off the air when checked June 13 at 1255, and 2205, but
by 2240, 9330+ old transmitter on with Brother Scare. Sometime before
0100 switched TOMBS onto the big`un, as now it`s the VG on-frequency
signal continuing with Brother Scare past 0136 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 1986, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, June 14 at 0556, WWCR with S9+20/30 of dead air; 3215
with Brother Scare, and 5890 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. Re last report, this of course was about WEWN:
15610, June 11 at 2026 is S9-S7 in English, definitely on as
usual, tho Ivo said June 10 that it`s ``very rarely on the air``,
scheduled at 19-24 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 13530, June 11 at 1344 CNR1 jammer is JBA, but enough to
match // 11785. Also at 1351 stronger 13870 at S5-S7; 14900 at S7-S9;
and at 1352, 15970 at S3-S5. Aoki confirms all are SOH frequencies,
but 14900 SOH relaying RFA. No other WOOBs found 12-16 MHz (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, June 10 at 2205, RHC is distorted and crackling.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550, June 11 at 2028, R. Kuwait with woman in Arabic,
music, S0-S3 on C&W Nam service at seasonal audibility peak (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 11 at 0612, VON is again/still OFF (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1985 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
June 9 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, very poor thru summer daytime absorption
off side of the beam

Also confirmed UT Monday June 10 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, fair & fadey

Also confirmed UT Monday June 10 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair & fadey

Also confirmed UT Monday June 10 from 0259 on Area 51 webcast; and at
0326 on WBCQ 5130.37, S9+10 but noisy

Also confirmed UT Monday June 10 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, S9 but noisy
and not upcut

Richard Langley reports: ``Good reception on Monday, 10 June, on 7290
kHz using the U. Twente SDR receiver. Some lightning QRN. Transmitter
s/on at about 1811:30 UT. Dead air for a few minutes and then random
audio for a minute or so and then the Aïda Triumphal March theme. WoR
1985 began at about 1816:30 with no "upcut." Ran the full show with
IRRS ID at the end and then into the news report -- Richard Langley``

Also confirmed UT Tuesday June 11 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S9-S8.

** U S A. 7505v, June 11 at 0612, WRNO is still OFF. Have not heard a
sign of it for over a week; not that II miss it. Is there anything
about this at http://www.wrnoworldwide.com/ ? Of course not! But
webcast is running June 12 at 0440 in English, and headed by this
astounding claim: ``Today, one out of every six people in the world
owns a shortwave radio and another 40% have Internet access``. Sez
who? Ask six random people if they have SW and one will say yes?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15610, June 11 at 2026 is S9-S7 in English, definitely on as
usual, tho Ivo said June 10 that it`s ``very rarely on the air``,
scheduled at 19-24 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, June 11 at 2027, WWCR is S9+15/25, obvious sporadic E
boost above normal JBA signal; I keep an eye on the DXmaps MUF, but
remains way below 88 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.120V, June 12 at 0145, WBCQ with dead air instead of
Brother HyStairical, still so at 0217. Slighty varying, measured at
0154. First noticed on caradio scan. Offset frequency means NOT the
superstation, which it now seems won`t be on before July, maybe
testing late June. We can hardly wait for the flat-earthers to start
programming as the Super-stition.

5130.437, June 12 at 0157, WBCQ also on here, also dead air and still
at 0217 recheck; maybe modulated earlier for UT Wed ham show?

No signal on 7490v, normally off by now anyway; not a trace of 3265v
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
