** CUBA. 5990, Feb 13 at 0101, CRI English via Habana is starting, having failed to cut off after Spanish hour, and splattering upon 5980 in my first Chaski-check; finally cuts off S9+45 at 0101:45* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6941.0-USB, Feb 13 at 0032, strong S9+25 pirate with bluegrass/gospel tune ``Circle Be Unbroken``; 0040 announcement as the Al Fansome Memorial Radio Show, since Al has lost his battle; then ``Amazing Grace`` by Evil Elvis. 0049 DJ is talking about Fansome being sympathetic to gay rights along with his life partner Jay Smilkstein; reading from obit: he was 89, died in Pittsboro, was bureaucrat at Foundation for Utter Slobbery, for 32 years. Enjoyed watching farm animals at the canal (corral?). Burial service at The Bog. 0051 news sounder turns into another song. 0055 intro Al`s favorite song to close out the show, and off at 0059* with no further announcement or ID. Many other logs of it here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,32849.0.html
some as Radio Bob, some as Radio Roast, and some that it was an old show from something else (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 13 circa 0030, JBA carrier from R. Chaski; retune at 0104.5 it`s already off, so autotimer must have undergone another reset earlier since last log. If not, it would have cut off at approx. 0108:18.5 since it`s already been nine days (x 6.67 seconds later each) from Feb 4 when it stopped at 0107:18.5* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sun Feb 12 at 1658 and 1825 chex, no signal at all from R. Munansi, thus WWRB seems off, especially since neighbor 15825 WWCR is fairly audible at 1825. So is R. Munansi gone for good or just troubled now? You never know, as WWRB has never acknowledged it on their website, altho it does show a `Global 2` transmission Sat & Sun 16-22 UT on 15240 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4000-USB, UT Mon Feb 13 at 0109, MARS net right on the shorter edge of 80m band. S9+25 monolog about Texas State `Guard; two-day training session available; participate on VHF net. Is reading from Admin notes: #6, some new members for Texas Army MARS are pending, applications sent to the fort, but got to have HF radios. #7 about ALE, a new version, will have to be installed. #8, online encryption. Abbr`d calls include 6YK, 6BG, need help for net control on some dates. TX7 will help with training. #8 about 2017 hamfests, starting 25 Feb at Orange. Concludes Admin notes, out at 0115. Then contact between TXX and TXL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1864 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday February 12 at 0425 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, 11 minutes into show about Elohim, El Salvador, so started circa 0414, S9+10/20. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 13 at 0037 the 0030 broadcast on WBCQ 9329.95v-CUSB, poor, but frequency has been adjusted closer to nominal after dropping to 9329.6 area. Next:
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.12, Sun Feb 12 at 2150, WBCQ is S9+10 with test transmission from Radio Mi Amigo International. Checked here after hearing first few minutes from 2100 on webcast. Nothing but disco, rock music, test announcements and requests for reports. Do we really need any more rock music??? During this hour I normally listen to `Wind & Rhythm, For Those Who Love Band Music`, on KUCO, and I soon switch over to that.

5130.10-AM, Feb 13 at 0022, WBCQ/Area 51 is very poor with music; so they have tweaked their frequencies since my last report of them further off. Later listened to Johnny Lightning online, but fear 5130 will also be VP for WOR at 0400.

7490.06, UT Mon Feb 13 at 0020, WBCQ with `Le Show`. Instead of his usual shticks, continuous interview until 0056, with unID author, of a book about America`s Wars in the Greater Middle East. Sounds sort of like Scheuer? And at 0056 wrapup I miss his name! Trying to listen to 6941-USB pirate at same time. I think Harry said this originally aired in April 2016. Signal is fading down by now. We can find all about it and hear Le Feb 12 Show again via http://harryshearer.com

Starting at 13:07 into hour: ``Interview with retired colonel, military historian, author: Professor Andrew Bacevich``

Preceded by ``Ralph the Talking Computer``, with a bit about the side effects of Propecia, which acting president Thump is on:
http://harryshearer.com/le-shows/february-12-2017/#t=05:58
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12015-12086, Feb 12 at 1432, approx. range of awful spurhash out of 12050 WEWN transmitter, which is very distorted and hummy on fundamental. Major peak is circa 12030. No doubt that would have ruined Turkey 12035 had I listened before 1425 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13656.0-USB, Feb 13 at 0117, very poor 2-way in unknown language, unseems English or Spanish. Not much else on band, except 13740 RHC, and trace of 13745 Thailand (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0353 UT February 13

Sigh, fixing a few typos (none concerning numbers)

** U S A. 3195, UT Sun Feb 12 at 0207, WWRB is on again after usual 4-night hiatus. After at least an hour of wacky conspiracies, now with bluegrass music, 0208 informal DJ, playing next ``Old Time Religion`` on Bluegrass Gospel (program or sub-program title?). I would enjoy that too, but timing collides with TOFTO on WTWW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3245-USB, UT Sun Feb 12 at 0149, that Saturday night MARS-like net. One guy is talking about ``blending three cultures``, i.e. AF, Navy and Army MARS with slightly different ways of doing things. Navy MARS was of course abolished a couple years ago; I`ve noticed that Air Force and Army seem to be mixed together now. But strive to make it `professional`, not just amateur. That said, may pat themselves on the back as ``no one else does it better``, unfortunately making others look bad, but that`s their problem. Mostly abbr`d calls dispensing with prefices, but including AAA5R5, AAA5RX1, AAA5RD. Net closing at 0201 but continues a few minutes more with informal QSO about what`s causing some fuses to blow (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Feb 12 at 0142 tune-in to dead air on Radio Progreso. Comes back at 0143 with song in English, ``I`ve Been Waiting So Long``! Not really, only one minute, but I don`t know how much dead aired before 0142. Do they have a self-deprecating sense of humor at RP? 5025 & 5040 on & nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 9700, Feb 12 at 0129, JBA music, what? HFCC shows IBB in Uighur this hour, presumably RFA, and subject to jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6145, UT Sun Feb 12 at 0130, The Mighty KBC, over to Kim for a sesquiminute Radiogram beepily celebrating World Radio Day, of which this is the Eve (a stretch, UTly). 0133 fulfilling a request for a Phil Harris novelty song with mystery bleeps never explicated. Got back to KBC just in time to hear sharp 0200* cutoff after final music. Never heard any farts/references from Uncle Eric, but must not have been listening at right times. Good signal via GERMANY this week. From 0000 sometimes this has been for only one hour, but lately two; depending on finances, I suppose (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-AM, Feb 11 at 2308, JBA carrier. Nothing at
this hour in HFUnderground, but earlier at 2050-2145 a station with dance music was thought to be Liquid Radio.
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,32804.0.html

6925.08-AM, Feb 12 at 0204, JBA pirate music at S6. Several logs here say it was KCPR - Cowboy Pirate Radio
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,32823.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, Feb 12 at 0122, soul music at S7-S8; 0136 unexpected talk under music said ``broadcasting from`` (?). 0137 pause for ID ``Wolverine Radio``, 0203 still music better at S9+5. Much better signal than the other 43mb pirates, as usual. Many more detailed logs, amounting to playlists:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,32817.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WBCQ

** SPAIN. 9690, Feb 11 at 2214, REE still AWOL from North American frequency, at least detectable on 11685, 15390, 15500 for elsewhere (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3245-USB, UT Sun Feb 12 at 0149, that Saturday night MARS-like net. One guy is talking about ``blending three cultures``, i.e. AF, Navy and Army MARS with slightly different ways of doing things. Navy MARS was of course abolished a couple years ago; I`ve noticed that Air Force and Army seem to be mixed together now. But strive to make it `professional`, not just amateur. That said, may pat themselves on the back as ``no one else does it better``, unfortunately making others look bad, but that`s their probllem. Mostly abbr`d calls dispensing with prefices, but including AAA5R5, AAA5RX1, AAA5RD. Net closing at 0201 but continues a few minutesmore with informal QSO about that`s causing some fuses to blow (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.05-AM, Feb 11at 2218 tune-in, WBCQ is already on with classic rock show, about Valens at the moment, being banned by the BBC, with British DJ host, soon refers to http://2ngradio.com where such music is available 24/7, ``from both sides of the Atlantic``. Good signal this early, and VG modulation and frequency response for the music, marred (enhanced?) only by some SW selective fading distortion (and if to eliminate that you switch to SSB tuning, it`s too narrow-band for good music). Listened to rest of hour instead of total napping. He`s rick@2ngradio.com Never heard of this before, and not European Music Radio this week which also might occupy this slot for non-weekly specials. Closes with 2ngradio.com jingle, WBCQ ID; 2300 into ``Ride of the Valkyries`` theme of Pirate Joe`s `Shortwave Saturday Night` show. He seems distracted, chops off theme abruptly, and is slow to get to any point; also signal is starting to fade down now, but fortunately no BBC/Thailand CCI or het. Meanwhile after 2300, 9330- is still in BS (and I forget to check at 2330 for WOR), while 5130- is not yet on. Later I look up the 2ng website to find this:

``2NG ON SHORTWAVE --- During the month of February, we will be transmitting around the globe on Shortwave. The next 2NG hour will be as follows.

Saturday February 11th
North America WBCQ 7490 kHz 2200 UT 5 pm EST
North America WBCQ 9330 kHz 2400 UT (Su) 7 pm EST (Sa)

Sunday February 12th
Europe 292 6070 kHz 1300 UT 1400 CET
Feedback welcomed.

WELCOME

We play the finest memorable songs from the past and bring back more memories per hour than any other radio station. Not only do we play the ones that everyone else does! but we also delve deep into the charts and play those number 38's and one-hit wonders! [. . .]

THE HUMAN BIT

Somewhere in the Metropolitan Washington, DC area at a secure datacenter sits a rock-solid server, the hard drives keep whirring night & day pumping out great hits on Atlantic Oldies 2NG. So, what gives and why oldies from two countries?

Well, that is easy, let me introduce myself, I'm Gorby, although you may hear me "on-air" as Rick Ainley. Firstly I'm a Brit, who has lived in DC for the last 15Â years and isn't going anywhere just yet! I've always loved the music when I grew up, although the Seventies decade was the first I can honestly remember. . .``

I had no advance publicity about this, but pays to check 7490 Saturdays at 22-23, and Sundays at 21-22 for such specials. In fact, there is one coming up Sunday:

``Radio Mi Amigo International North American Tests
From an e-mail: "Radio Mi Amigo International will do some tests the next days to North America, here are the times and frequencys:
7490 kHz Sunday (Feb 12) 4-5 pm Eastern -> 9-10 pm UT [21-22 UT]
7490 kHz Wednesday (Feb 15) 8-9 pm Eastern -> Thu (Feb 16) [01-02 UT]
9330 kHz Saturday (Feb 18) 5-6 pm Eastern -> 10-11 pm UT" [22-23 UT]
That would be WBCQ -- Richard Langley, Feb 7, dxldyg via WORLD OF RADIO 1864`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.58-AM, Feb 12 at 0119, WBCQ is S9+5 here with joke in English about an Indian brave and his betrothed, modulation a bit rough, soon ID as Radio Azteca. That`s a pirate/show not on schedule now, subbing or within `Radio Timtron Worldwide`. No hits on Azteca searching the entire WBCQ website. Lots of logs of it as a true pirate from 2016, 2009y at HFUnderground. Name seems to have nothing to do with Mexico (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Feb 12 at 0207, WTWW-2 wasn`t on before 0200, but now starting late `Theatre Organ from the Ozarx` (oops, that would make it TOFTO not TOOTO), except this week Bob Heil is playing some tapes from his own archives of some other performer in Ohio(?), some more old favorites, partly on piano. Another enjoyable show at S9+40 but the spurs are not as strong as usual. Wraps up about half an hour later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3195, UT Sun Feb 12 at 0207, WWRB is on again after usual 4-night hiatus. After at least an hour of wacky conspiracies, now with bulegrass music, 0208 informal DJ, playing next ``Old Time Religion`` on Bluegrass Gospel (program or sub-program title?). I would enjoy that too, but timing collides with TOFTO on WTWW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Follow-up to a previous log:
``6855, Feb 4 at 0432, WRMI in Spanish with a fin-de-aÃo special, announcing it will also be repeated Jan 1 at 0500 on 9955, for ``Noche de San Silvestre``, mÃsica, S9+10, and // 5985 as usual at this hour, which is S9+35. Two guys in Colombia are hosting; 0439 the only ID they give is for Radio Miami Internacional. I had no advance notice of this whatsoever before NY Eve, but mitigates not hearing much of special interest at that time. Perhaps this too will keep repeating for six months? On the 5985 sked for Sat 0430 is Frecuencia al DÃa.``

Later, looking thru WRMI`s FB, I come upon this which seems like what I heard Feb 4 at 0430, `Angloparade`, altho not normally scheduled then:

``December 29, 2016 Â ESPECIAL DE ANO NUEVO - WRMI NEW YEAR SPECIAL
Despida el 2016 y reciba el 2017 en compaÃÃa del equipo de Angloparade y Las 15 con Chemas desde BogotÃ, Colombia en exclusivo para WRMI Radio Miami Internacional. EscÃchenos este 31 de diciembre y 01 de enero con una selecciÃn de tradiciones, saludos y mÃsica latinoamericana para celebrar esta nostÃlgica y alegre Ãpoca del calendario. Todos los informes serÃn verificados con QSL. DÃjenos su mensaje a info@angloparade.com o a nuestro WhatsApp +57 3014745658`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4070.45, Feb 12 at 0144, CW beacon GT, and frequency shifts a little as my tuner does not. Now-standard remark about, where is it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0424 UT February 12
