** CUBA. 13770, 13841, 13629, 13558, Nov 25 at 1539, approx. spots of
spurblobs out of RHC 13700; not much program audio but easier to hear
in AM than in FM, along with trace of F# tones. The second-orders are
much weaker and no third-orders detectable another 69-71 kHz out.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. I don`t have a new SW log to attach this to, but
check out this from NPR Morning Edition as heard Nov 25 at 1435 UT via
KOSU:

``Leaked Documents Offer A Peek Inside China's Detention Of Uighurs
November 25, 2019 7:41 AM ET Heard on Morning Edition
Listen· 4:16 4-Minute Listen

https://www.npr.org/2019/11/25/782549071/leaked-documents-offer-a-peek-inside-chinas-detention-of-uighurs

NPR's Steve Inskeep talks to China expert Adrian Zenz about the
documents which provide a look at the Chinese government's crackdown
on ethnic minorities in the country's Xinjiang province.``

Think of this whenever you hear Xinjiang PBS or any CRI via Kashgar or
Urumqi. Or ANY CRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 4880, Nov 25 at 0738, JBA talk seems Korean as in Echo
of Hope, propagating already and thus avoiding the Brazilians on 4885.
Yes, still on 4880 at regular time of 1358; now intermittent RTTY or
something circa 4882. Ron Howard agrees and adds:

``3980 // 4880 // 5990 // 6245 // 6348 // 9095, Echo of Hope - VOH,
with the weekly change of frequencies that is done on Monday (today
Nov 25). All frequencies not jammed; 1129+, start of the daily English
language lesson. My audio at http://bit.ly/2rpFY9o
The language lesson will be repeated in three hours time (1429) (Ron
Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, Etón E1, antenna: 100' long wire,
WOR iog via DXLD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11540, Nov 25 at 1413, two stations mixing about
equally, medium SAH, Dengê Welat and maybe an Erdogan speech (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2009 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
November 24 at 2155 the 2130 on WRMI 7780, fair.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 25 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S7-S9, right after
Bob Zanotti attempts to ID but only gets his name out, squeezed in
after another full canned ID by someone else. I did not deliberately
interrupt him.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 25 at 0230 on reactivated WRMI 9395, S9+10
with some fades to S7; back on, our only airing via the NNW antenna,
and also on 7780 to the NE, S9+10 on meter, but sounds much softer.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 25 from 0359 on Area 51 webcast; and on WBCQ
5130 at 0427 check but JBA; 9330 is also JBA, probably with something
else.

Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 25 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, VP S9-S7 but JBA;
OK on webcast. Next:

1900vUT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW; 9330?
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Need to check whether 7290 can be heard at UTwente or other SDRs; and
whether transmission now start before WOR. Question mark after
Romania? That has been the assumed site, as IRRS does not comment on
transmitter sites they use. Alexander Busneag, Germany, has concluded
it can`t be Romania, also because bandwidth is 11 kHz, instead of only
10 for RRI broadcasts:
http://ab27.bplaced.net/irrs/7290-irrs.png

``IRRS 9510 kHz is transmitted via SAF (Săftica), 100 kW. SAF is 13 km
away from TIG (Țigănești). However, transmissions of RRI (Radio
Romania International) via SAF are also registered as TIG in the HFCC
database.

Nevertheless, IRRS 7290 kHz is apparently NOT transmitted via Romania.
RADIOCOM operates 6 SW transmitters of which 5 transmitters are needed
by RRI:
- 2 transmitters of 300 kW in GAL (Galbeni, Bacău county) -> both
transmitters are used by RRI at 1900-2000 for its Romanian language
broadcast
- 3 transmitters of 300 kW in TIG (Țigănești, Ilfov county) -> 2
transmitters [tx3 and tx1] are not functional at present: (tx3 is a
currently unfunctional "backup" transmitter; tx2 is used by RRI at
1900-2000 for its German language broadcast; tx1 is normally also used
by RRI and will soon be repaired)
- 1 transmitter of 100 kW in SAF (Săftica, Ilfov county) -> the
transmitter is used by RRI at 1900-1930 for its Italian language DRM
broadcast and 1930-2000 for its Aromanian language broadcast.
So there is no free capacity at 1900-2000 for IRRS via ROU.

Here is a schedule of all RRI broadcasts in B-19:
http://ab27.bplaced.net/rri.pdf
(Alexander Busneag, Nov 20, WOR iog via DXLD)``

Someone might perform TDOA during the 7290 19-20 UT broadcast, if we
really want to know whence it`s via.

** U S A. 9330.00, Sunday Nov 24, WLC via WBCQ reported by Richard
Langley, NB, heard in Arabic at 2000. Circa 2155 I hear the menacing
WLC IS. But by 2207 it`s S9+40/30 simulcasting `Marion`s Attic` from
7490v which is S9-S6 and as usual running about a semi-minute ahead.
Same thing happened last Sunday, but presumably not any more after
handing over to fulltime WLC as of Nov 28. Stays with WBCQ
programming: at 2300 `UBMP`, 0000 Monday Nov 25 `Le Show`, 0100
`Encore`: by 0113, 9330 is S9+20/30 while 7490v is S5-S6 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1200, Nov 25 at 1357 UT, Spanish has overtaken WOAI, soon ID
for TUDN Radio, WRTO Chicago with the call letters pronounced in
English. More than an hour after Chicago sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200-USB, Nov 25 at 1435, 2-way colloquial Spanish, good
signal, or at least one-way monolog with puta expletives (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1720 UT Nov 25

Hauser
** ASCENSION. 15685, Sat Nov 23 at 1907, unknown language with silly
ballgame coverage complete with crowd noise and hyper hosts, S9 to
S9+10 on a frequency usually vacant since WWCR moved to 15825 years
ago. Suspect DW which for some reason covers SBGs in Hausa ---- NO,
HFCC shows it`s BBC doing the same (potentially?) every Saturday in
B-19, 1700-1930, 250 kW, 65 degrees from ASC. Why is this? Some
player(s) from Hausaland on Euro football teams? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 6230, Nov 23 at 2222, Chinese JBA on this Sound of Hope
frequency subject to 24 hour CNR1 jamming.

6870, Nov 23 at 2334, ditto except this one is S7-S9 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 24 at 1448, RHC is S9 of dead air; 1454 maybe just
barely modulated; something`s always wrong at RHC.

13631, Nov 24 at 1450, RHC FM/AM spurblob; and at 1452 a much weaker
one with F# tone around 13562; but when I tune up to source 13700,
it`s just gone off along with the spurs before I can seek them on the
plus side. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15140, Nov 24 at 1454, this RHC is off while 15230 is on; recheck at
1540, 15140 is back on at S9+20, much stronger than 15230 S9.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7140, Nov 24 at 1531 JBA continuous AM carrier, at prime
evening time for VOBME to arrive via long-path; less of a trace on the
other frequency 7180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [and non]. 6220, Nov 23 at 2220, carrier with 1 kHz tone,
making it seem like 3 carriers 6219-6220-6221; presumably the Sirjan
jammer which started this week trying to block Iran International TV,
a satellite service from London which first appeared on 6210 in
response to Iran blocking internet access. USAGM and BBC also hastened
to step up SW to Iran. Much more about this summarized on WORLD OF
RADIO 2009. Later report from Ivo Ivanov:

``UZBEKISTAN, Iran International TV audio via RRTM Tashkent Nov 23
0400-1200 11570*TAC 100 kW / 236 deg Farsi, fair to good
1200-0400 6220 TAC 100 kW / 236 deg Farsi + STANAG (alt.6230/6270)

0400-1500 17695 unknown tx (UDO/PHT) to WeAs NO SIGNAL FROM NOV 21!
Iran International TV audio is under "NOR", according to AGM RMS
locations.
*from 12 UT 11570 PHT 250 kW / 021 deg Korean AGM Voice of America

https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/11/iran-international-tv-audio-via-rrtm.html
-- 73! Ivo Ivanov``

Ron Howard was again hearing intermittent tones on 6220 the next day
between 1225 and 1445. By 1730 Nov 24, Wolfgang Bueschel found Iran
International TV on 6230, still presumably Uzbekistan, but no
tone/jamming yet.

Kai Ludwig explains that ``NOR`` is code for Noratus, the Armenian
transmitter site a.k.a. ERV, a.k.a. Gavar, a.k.a. CJSC = Closed Joint
Stock Company, per WRTH 2019 which also claims the site has 3 x 100 kW
and 3 x 1000 kW SW transmitters! Altho there are plenty of nominal
500s, HFCC has not a single listing of 1000 kW anywhere (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 4775, Radio Tarma notified Manuel Méndez that today Nov 23
they would be testing their new 1.4 kW transmitter between 20 and 02
UT; and at 10-14, asking for reception reports. They were going to get
a 2 kW transmitter so maybe this is it but not at full power. Too
early to propagate here, but Mauno Ritola in Finland was seeing it by
2030 on 4775.04.

Tarma sunset is not until 2310 UT (And sunrise 1028) per gaisma.com.
Varies less than an hour during the year. Our sunset in Enid: 2319.

At 2330 I have two stations, the stronger on the minus side around
4774.95, presumably Congonhas, Brasil, with talking and even yelling,
vs CODAR on both sides. And making low het with the other. At least
now easier to separate them.

4775.041, Nov 24 at 0016, now the upper one dominates with music, vs
CODAR double swishes every second. At 0019 it`s recognizably
``Andean``, rather than Congonhan. Hearing same Andean music as on
their webstream via
https://www.radiotarma.com/
which is in $ tereo and no CODAR; various IDs every few minutes, one
for FM 90.9 only. Unfortunately the Programación page is blank (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 13590.060V, Nov 23 at 1909, DJ in English sounds like
VOA-1, but so far off frequency, and wavering slightly? Pinheira site
scheduled this hour only, 100 kW at 138 degrees. Kuwait and UAE both
use 13590 earlier and are more adept at offfrequenciness, but of
USAGM`s own sites, ST also has a record of this, e.g. 6080+ (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 6115, UT Sun Nov 24 at 0100, `Encore` classical
music from Radio Tumbril via WWCR again this week, near-perfect
reception except for constant squeal on WWCR-1; 0150 starts to fade a
bit and cut off at 0158 for QSY to 3215; not clear how much of the
``playout`` piece, La Péri, was lost. Website playlist is 2 weeks old.
Another chance at 0100 UT Monday on WBCQ 7490v, and maybe like last
week also on 500 kW 9330 as a testing bonus (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Nov 23 at 1916, no signal from REE which ought to be
propagating by now; nor at 2229 when certainly if it were on, while
the other 3 are OK, in increasing order of strength, 11685, 11940,
12030 still during silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2009 monitoring: WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, UT Sun
Nov 24 at 0427 is still in ham SSTV; by 0500 WOR 2009 is playing at
S9+30, 15-16 minutes into so started circa 0444-0445. Next:

2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, Nov 23 at 1915, WBCQ-6 is on with WLC, averaging
only S9 so presumably aimed away from us now. At 0007 UT Nov 24, John
Carver notifies me, ``Area 51 is also broadcasting on 9330 this
evening.`` But when I check at 0215 it`s rather weak and noisy. UT
Sunday A51 programming is: 0000 Timtron; 0100 GRITS; 0200 Lumpy Gravy;
0300 Euphoria; 0400 Lost Discs. But at 0359 recheck it`s already back
to wacky WLC`s menacing `cello IS loop for the
end-of-hour/end-of-world (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, Fri Nov 22 at 2030, good signal on caradio,
Radio Tirana relay via WRMI is *FINALLY* fixed. Good to hear Klara
again opening after IS, but she never mentions being on SW anymore,
just webcast address, since this relay was arranged by myself and
other RT fans, without any help from management, not even assuring the
stations get the right file. Radio360.eu must have reset its timer to
grasp the 6-daily English semihour at the correct time for forwarding
on to German and US SW stations. Almost a month after the time-change
in Europe. One hopes this SNAFU can be forestalled in future.

After news, press review including statistics of road accidents; 2045
folk music, never IDed nor explained; 2048 ID and `Profile` of Petro
Marko (sp?), writer born 25/11/1913; 2053 two more nice but unID
Albanian songs, no further announcements or sign-off; 2058.5 IS plays
for a minute, 2059.5 WRMI ID in Spanish by Jaime Báguena, 2100 cut to
a few words of other Spanish as if some such program intended, but
right away cut again to Brother HyStairical. Automation is
misaligned.

9395, UT Sat Nov 23 at 0132, this WRMI is in Oldies, not Tirana;
recheck 0230, *now* the other RT relay is also restored at S9/+10, no
doubt repeating the one 6 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11540, Nov 23 at 1609, one station at S9-S7 in
talk, unsounds Turkish so I guess Kurdish from Denge Welat. The radio
war with Turkey`s ``Radio Erdogan`` jamming may have abated. But
language alone is not sufficient to differentiate, as Rumen Pankov
repeatedly pointed out previously, D.K. would include long segments in
Turkish, not just Kurdish. Presumably via FRANCE at this hour rather
than Pridnestrovye (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 684, Nov 23 at 0537, best TA carrier here after first
checking weaker 774; and enough for some audio in Castilian. Quick
scan of the entire band at 9-kHz intervals finds nothing comparable,
nothing else breaking thru with modulation. 684 is a single RNE 200 kW
transmitter in Sevilla; and no other 684s in W Europe (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Sat Nov 23 at 1519, JBA carrier from so-called N
American service of REE which gets absorbed across the daypath
Atlantic; while 12030 aimed oppositeward to ME is doing well in
excited stupid-ballgame coverage; not `Amigos de la Onda Corta` as
1500 Saturday was one of the contradictory times listed for revived DX
program.

Rechecking all frequencies at 1610-1612 Nov 23: 9690 is now
propagating poorly at S3-S5 in music, NOT // the others! all // in
SBG: 11685 P-F S3-S5 vs 11687.5 RTTY; 11940 better and 12030 best.
Normally would expect 11940 to SAm to match 9690 to NAm when there is
separate programming on the Af/ME frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2009 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, Friday November 22 at 2300 on WRMI 9955 --- and exactly like the
last two weeks, starts off with heavy Cuban jamming, but it gradually
abates and is gone by 2310 except for a few beeps. This must be its
standard scheduled procedure, strangely enough.

Also confirmed UT Saturday November 23 at 0130 on WRMIs: checking 5010
first, Biblebot interrupted at 0129.5 for BB ID at S9/+10 and then
WOR. 5850 also at S9+20 but sounds much louder. 7780 only S9-S7. Then
I compare them on two radios: 5010 & 5850 are synchronized, but 1
second behind 7780 apparently in playouts from separate Systems.

Next airing is 1300 Saturday on WRMI 15770. Awake, I listen from 1320
to 1329 to the JBA carrier hoping for even a momentary surge enough to
recognize me but it never does; seems to be continuous talk by someone
such as myself. 15770 is S4-S5 vs ambient band noise level of S3-S4.

** U S A. 9330.00, Nov 22 at 2134, World`s Last Chance [sic] via
WBCQ-6 with ``daily mailbag``, questions always about their wacko
theology. So 9330 has indeed been turned over to WLC again, almost
only.

7490.1v, UT Sat Nov 23 at 0059, FKB gospel huxter via phoneline again
concludes claiming also to be later on ``9625`` from WINB, which he
must have never tried to verify or find it really on 9265V. Some
unexplained noise for a bit as WBCQ is switching sources to FLA.

0101 `AAAWWW` starts with WTO, and AW opens mentioning this time he is
also on 9330, where we easily continue listening off & on amid his
repeated ever-Trump screeds. Late at 0116, first call interrupting
from annoying ``wild Freddie`` who is getting this at 50 over 9. 0118
observes a 15-20 second delay between the two frequencies as running
thru computers; I now have 9330 at only S9+20/30 and time its delay
after fair 7490v as 32 seconds.

AW says they now have got most bugs out of the S-S, but it`s very
complex involving electronic, hydraulic and pneumatic systems all of
which have to funxion properly together. AW believes whatever Trump
says, and I tune out at 0126. 0153 I`m back listening to 7490 stream
as he says testing will finish next Wednesday on a noon-to-midnight
sked (17-05 UT), and officially on Thanksgiving Thursday turn it over
to WLC Radio only, 24/7. New sked will be on WBCQ and WLC websites ---
we wonder if they will finally be able to ascend beyond 9330 when
propagationally proper. Both HFCC and WLC web skeds have always been
imaginary, or shall we say, projexions. At 0159 trying to squeeze in
e-mail and prayers, tells master control in Montecello not to cut him
off --- but they do at 0200 sharp as Hal Turner must not be delayed.

Here`s John Carver`s version: ``Tonight's show started I know not when
on a very poor 7490. Couple of minutes in heard that they were also
broadcasting on 9330 so retuned the radio. Nice clear signal there.
Allan says testing on the superstation will end next Wednesday and WLC
will take over starting on Thanksgiving day. Some Trump talk and first
phone call at 0115 from Freddie who says he has 9330 at 50 over. Allan
tells him that he thinks they have most of the bugs worked out of the
transmitter now. Freddie off the phone and back to impeachment talk
and then utopia talk. Allan did say that they would be testing every
day from noon till midnight local time. Phone call from Tony Straka at
0155 with more talk of signal strength of 9330. Reading of emails at
0158 and program was cut off at 0200. John, mid-North Indiana.``

9330 must have resumed WLC; at spot chex continuing very strong as MUF
is cooperative this night unlike others; still a few minutes before
0500, but then gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sat Nov 23 at 1610, JBA carrier, presumably KVOH
attempting the first broadcast of Wavescan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** BOLIVIA [non]. Art Delibert replies to my last report:

``Glenn -- Regarding your report on the JBA on 6134.819 which you
assume is Radio Santa Cruz, Bolivia, I have found lately that Radio
Aparecida, Brazil, is sometimes on 6135.12 and sometimes on 6134.83.
Santa Cruz, when it's on, is on 6134.88. On 11/19, I had a very good
signal on 6134.83 from 0200, which was clearly in Portuguese. I went
to Radio Aparecida's website and listened in; it was the same
programming that I was hearing on 6134.83, except 15 seconds behind.

** MADAGASCAR. Re my log on 15155 of AWR, Peter W Hansen replies:

``Hi Glenn, This broadcast from AWR is from Madagascar Sun - Fri; and
from Trincomalee on Saturdays as per HFCC AWR file & the AWR web site.
The Saturday broadcast has been best heard in Brazil, and the Sun-Fri
has been best heard in South Africa and Bonaire.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,

I appreciate such correxions when necessary. And another:

** OKLAHOMA. Enid Earthquake follow-up: as usually happens, USGS
revised its earliest info, originally 4.0 and 15 km east. Now:

``3.6 magnitude, 15 km ESE of Enid, Oklahoma, 2019-11-22 05:44:36
(UTC), 8.8 km deep``

However, this remains greater than any of the other North American
region quaxe of the last 24 hours, multiples around PR and DR, CA and
NV. We Okies can remain proud.

I must also revise my `certain` timing of the shock arrival at our
place in Enid to: 0544:46 UT, i.e. 10 seconds later as would be
expected this far from the epicenter.

USGS adds an aftershock, which we did not feel: ``2.5 mag., 15 km E of
Enid, Oklahoma, 2019-11-22 06:14:19 (UTC), 8.8 km deep.`` (Glenn
Hauser, Enid,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 13830, Nov 22 at 1529, repeating orchestral IS of a few
notes, vaguely familiar, S9-S7; 1530 ``Laudetur Iesus Christus`` a
dead giveaway it`s VR, and into Amharic as scheduled direct from SMG
at 139 degrees; to be followed at 1600 by Swahili, rotated another 11
degrees clockwise. VR continues to serve well non-targets. Of course,
the IS is a version I had not noticed before of the old ``Christus
Vincit``, which is no longer mentioned by name or tune in the WRTH of
2019 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11802-USB, Nov 22 at 1404, 2-way in colloquial Spanish
