** BOLIVIA [and non]. 5935, Oct 2 at 2336, cannot detect any carrier from R. Yura, altho noise level is not so bad tonight; nor at 2356 just before WWCR blasts on. Yet I am getting various S. American off-frequencies including 5952.46, Pio Doce, which was missing the last two nights. Colombia is but a JBA carrier on 5910.33. Have not seen any South American logs of Yura since Claudio Galaz` on Sept 22. On his clip, sounds like frequency is announced as ``6,236`` rather than 5936. What do you think:
https://archive.org/details/5935KhzR.Yura

It would be helpful if DXers down there would report non-logs of stations like this, i.e. when heard before and should be audible if on. Art Delibert in Maryland, however, tells me, ``Glenn â I heard a VERY weak het on 5935 in the period leading up to 0000 [presumably Oct 1 into Oct 2]. Itâs back again tonight (2348 Oct 2), but again very weak. Regards, Art Delibert`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA. 6024.98, Oct 2 at 2338, JBA carrier, suspected Red Patria Nueva (ex/a.k.a. Radio Illimani), and maybe an even weaker second carrier closer to 6025.00 --- that would be 100 kW from Tibet. RPN is tough here and I`ve never really heard it well. Also getting Cuban Commie jamming bleed from 6030. Valko had RPN on 6024.9 this July, in the morning. Also some more logs from 2015 & 2014 on 6024.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 17559.96, Oct 3 at 0009, Chinese could be VOA Tinang this hour only, or CNR1 jammer; I`m afraid that this VOA site would more likely be off-frequency; very poor but almost the OSOB except for a JBA carrier on 17490 which would be CRI Beijing site unjammed in Cantonese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9618 approx., Oct 2 at 2354, Cuban-style pulse jamming at the rate of 4 per second, against nothing, inexplicable and unseems unrelated to the walls of noise on 9565 and 9955; but jamming transmitters can also output spurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12090, Oct 2 at 2344, JBA carrier, presumed RHC leapfrog of 11670 over 11880 another 210 kHz higher, as previously logged; nothing else scheduled on 12090. Also a trace of modulation on 12020, which would be 11880 over 11950 another 70 kHz beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Oct 2 at 2352, very poor music // bit stronger 9935, ERT back on both frequencies. No one else uses 9935, but China and Iran might be on 9420, such as China right now with CNR per HFCC; Iran at other times if Kamalabad were still operational, for a couple of imaginary English broadcasts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940.0-USB, Oct 2 at 2341 rock music, 2342 `Goin` up in Smoke` bluesy, 2343 percussive interlude, 2350 with some talkovers I can`t understand; still past hourtop into Oct 3, at 0003 YL plugs HFUnderground.com; 0009 ``Jihad Radio, your local radio staiton, Jihad Radio, to blow you sky-high``, Britishish accent, and off, or rather pause, 0010 siren, and off again. Started out as Clever Name Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,37733.0.html
also with more about the Jihad Radio parody program from 2013-2014y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, Oct 2 at 2325, JBA carrier from Radio Chaski until autocutoff at 2330:38* --- but then an even weaker carrier cuts back on, I think, rather than being uncovered. All A-season there has been nothing else on 5980 at this hour (not even a WWCR mixing product which online skeds fail to include later).

I`m suspecting R. Chaski`s transmitter has decided to keep its exciter going, perhaps unnoticed by the humans in charge (who don`t even need to notice the cutoffs when they happen). Still at 2351 check but not at 2359.

Or, has something else appeared there? Better check the latest HFCC, Aoki and EiBi. HFCC has nothing new at this hour; however, RNZI has registered 5980 starting at 1300, which would replace 6170; maybe backup, alt or wooden. Don`t think it has really happened yet.

No, nothing else in EiBi or NDXC/Aoki. However, unlike HFCC, they remind us that 5980 is one of the Scandinavian Weekend Radio frequencies from Finland on the first Saturdays, but not at this hour; Aoki also is outdated for the Chaski sign-off as 0103, which was earlied a sesquihour some months ago, as in EiBi until 2341, which is about the latest I ever got it before recessing autocutoff time.

Speaking of which, today`s time of 2330:38* is 7 seconds later than yesterday until 2330:31* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed Monday October 2 just after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.20v-CUSB, good S9+20. Also confirmed UT Tuesday October 3 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, VG S9+30. NEW WOR 1898 should be ready for first airings Tuesday Oct 3 at 2130 on WRMI 9455 if not 15770, 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Monday Oct 2 at 2030, filling in another blank in WRMI`s new schedule: `Reality [sic] in Jesus`, Denver PA, dedicated to the end-times mythology. Only other known time on sked is Saturday 1130 on 9955. Now to check Tuesday if I can pull away from WOR recording session (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11802.00-USB, Oct 2 at 2347, INTRUDERS, colloquial Spanish 2-way about ``14 kilos, puta-madre``, plus whistling, engine noise, ``no pescan allÃ``; ``cambio`` to much weaker contact. So is he talking about dope smuggling or fishing? You don`t fish from an airplane (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, Oct 2 at 0543, now it`s this RHC English frequency which is off, remaining on 6100, 6060, 6000 during music --- but the last of The Cuban Five, 5040 is in wrong language, Spanish! with sports report. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Oct 2 at 0539, RNZP/RNZI is here, despite online sked showing nothing during this hour. Starting at 0359, 11725 must be running two hours instead of one, before 9630 take over at 0559. As of 1515 UT October 2, ``How to Listen`` sked has still not been corrected (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [and non]. 6075.520, Oct 2 at 1420, VP signal in Chinese? talk, vs a weaker carrier on 6075.00. NDXC/Aoki, which refuses to bother with precise frequencies, shows RTI in Chinese on ``6075`` at 1400-1700, which is certainly being *jammed; more likely RTI is the one off-frequency, altho that hardly helps. NDXC/Aoki also lists an unID CNR station on ``6075`` at 2100-1500. I try to // 6075.520 to any of the numerous CNR frequencies on 49m and higher bands, many of them jammers, but all are just too weak to make a match on second receiver (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13564-CW, Oct 2 at 1429, GNK beacon is very poorly audible vs CODAR. This is in Madison WI, last logged Feb 16, despite almost daily random scans of the 13550-13570 band --- Just one day since I also heard K6FRC one kHz higher after a long break. LWCA roster shows:

13563.99, GNK, Madison WI, 10 wpm last reported in August
13565.035, K6FRC Patterson CA, 10 wpm last reported in July
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday October 2 at 0300 on Area 51 webcast, and also audible at 0327 before conclusion on WBCQ 5130.33, fair S9+10 (but not on 3250). Also confirmed after 0330 UT Monday Oct 2 on WRMI webcast, but 9955 is very poor in noise level. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1080, October 2 at 0235 UT, KRLD Dallas TX ending CBS TV `60 Minutes` segment I saw earlier about the Webb space telescope (lacking stunning visuals!); 5 minutes of local radio ads; 0240 UT resume next 60M story about a millionaire teen soccer star, in this crazy world of ours. Anyhow, CBS-owned radio station is playing audio track of the TV show at 0200 UT Mondays, 3 hours after nominal original telecast (but which was delayed a semihour due to a different stupid ballgame). IIRC some CBS radio stations used to run this closer to original airtime 6 pm CT Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, October 2 at 1317, KYND Cypress/Houston TX is still running the ``please buy time here`` loop like yesterday, beneath modulating KOKC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15344.076, Oct 2 at 1433, JBA carrier. Such an off-frequency immediately brings to mind RAE Argentina, and also Morocco, both of which have been gone from SW for months and years respectively. Yet NDXC/Aoki still lists a full schedule for RAE! No other stations are on 15345 at anyhour per that, HFCC and EiBi.

RAE was going to reactivate as soon as they could get replacement parts, but if so, it`s no better than it used to be. Seems to fade, but this could also be from a local device, so others please check for anything around 15344 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA [non]. 11775, Oct 1 at 1417, still no signal from Caribbean Beacon. Turns out that the Sept 24 reactivation when it sounded OK, was quite an anomaly; no more hurricanes, but not heard since. Now there is a JBA carrier on 11775, presumably AIR Nepali via GOA until 1430.

6090.0, Oct 1 at 2353, no AIA, but VP signal with music, not off frequency, not R. Bandeirantes, Brasil which is inactive anyway. What do you bet China has a transmitter on here, good for grayline? Yes, NDXC/Aoki and HFCC show CNR2, southward from Geermu until 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA. 5935, Oct 1 at 2337 and 2354, no carrier detectable from R. Yura, vs S9+ storm noise level from Nebraska (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA. 5952.4+, Oct 1 at 2337, still no signal from Radio Pio XII, like last night. Despite noise level, think I should have been able to detect it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Oct 1 at 2329, R. Chaski, JBA carrier vs very heavy storm noise level from Nebraska; can barely tell it goes off at 2330:31*, which is 24.5 seconds later than last catch four nights ago, Sept 27 until 2330:06.5*, so averaging 6.12 seconds later per. However, my previous timing was imprecise; if it were 1 second earlier, the average would be 6.37, still not up to the expected 6.7. We`ll see next time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Oct 1 at 1813, yup, REE is still dead air to North America, 4 hours after last check, while 17715 manages to modulate with news about Catalunya (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830+, slightly on the hi side, Oct 1 at 2341, German, so Emirler dozers have again neglected to turn off this VOT frequency before 2300; after 2200 English of less than an hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Oct 1 at 1419, can barely make out K6FRC beacon ID in noise level but not CODAR. Regular monitoring of the HIFER band finally pays off. Last time I heard this Californio was March 17 at: 1418! Consult
http://www.lwca.org/sitepage/part15/index.htm
Still months have gone by without hearing any of the other previous regulars (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7533.50-USB, Oct 1 at 2349, MARS net in some kind of roundtable or roster check-in, but rather disorganized causing a couple of double-transmission talkovers. Each one mentions two more suffices after his own call, e.g. AAR6UK, MB, XB; NCS seems to be AAR6TF, PL, WN; then back to AAR6MA, PL, RS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed Sunday October 1 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.16v-CUSB, S9 fading to S6. Next:
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW [also check 3250v-AM]
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.20-USB, Sunday October 1 at 2057, WBCQ is already on with rock prÃlude, but not on 7490. By 2059 it`s on too, 7490.110, at very poor level. No canned ID until 2102 and into `Marion`s Attic` special, with Marion and Christina live from Monticello (except for the music which is as ancient as ever, but apparently set up to play back the cylinders there. Seems to me that the thing to do would be dub them once onto digital media, and then put them back into museum for preservation and no further wear; but that would be blasphemy?)

Since reception is so poor this early on both SW frequencies I can get, and none at all on the ones I cannot, 3250 and 5130, I confess to listening to the rest of it via the 7490 online stream. A lot less music than usual, since the live show is an opportunity to take phone calls from fans, and there are quite a few to MA #686. At 2135 one from Tim (Hendel) in Huntsville AL, who adds plugs in Spanish, French and German (but not Albanian). 2146 Marion asserts that this is the first quadri-cast in WBCQ history. Final call is from Uncle Bill, but Marion doesn`t seem to know who he is, i.e. the next program which also starts late, at 2303, featuring folk music from the FYROM, which I continue to enjoy noise-free until 2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Sunday Oct 1 at 2056 check, WRMI with Roberto Scaglione in Italian, so `Studio DX` reconfirmed here for a second week in the 20-21 block which starts with Radio Prague daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, Sunday October 1 at 2344, WRMI Oldies service amid VOA News relay, items about Catalunya, Puerto Rico, Trump; meanwhile 9395 is BSing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 21610, Oct 1 at 1814, VP carrier here, presumably WHRI, which was registered to QSY here at 13-20 UT a month ago, Sept 3, from 17815, but that never happened. Now not on 17815; was mostly BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, Oct 1 at 2355, WWRB is already on, S9+25 with classic rock prÃlude (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6910-LSB, Oct 1 at 2334, Spanish lecture about allocation of Mexican ham radio calls, sounds like a broadcast, but finally at 2336, ``adelante``, over to virtually inaudible contact. No US pirates to be heard now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 15449.885, Oct 1 at 1414, still a JBA carrier, from off-frequency IBB Biblis scheduled for Radio Liberty in Tajik (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, Sunday October 1 at 1250, RNZI back on correct frequency instead of 6170 which was running before 1300 yesterday; 6170 not on yet but is at 1335 recheck.

RNZI how-to-listen schedule now shows some changes effective Oct 1, not including the 7425/6170 matter: dropping 13840, otherwise same frequencies but apparently adjusted hours, daily: 2259-0358 15720, 0359-0458 11725, [0459-0558 NOTHING! typo?], 0559-0758 9630, 0759-1058 7425, 1059-1258 7425, 1259-1650 6170 (except Sat to 1858), etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sunday October 1 at 1408, REE again today radiates S9+10 of dead air toward North America, just like the entire(?) broadcast on Saturday. Are they shooting for a full 16 hours of dead air this weekend? 17715 is almost as strong but with silly ballgame modulation, 15520 also audible.

Will they have any time for unbiased reporting about Catalunya secession referendum? REE has nothing to worry about as dozing Noblejas site is safely ensconced in Toledo, central EspaÃa, altho it`s missing from the map on page 59 of the 2017 WRTH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, B`lgariya, reports: ``GERMANY, No signal of World of Radio #1897 via HLR on 6190/9485 CUSB, Sept 30/Oct 1:

Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, October 1 at 1240 UT, immediately upon tune-in, KYND ID, and no KOKC modulation, dead air there making usual slow SAH. Turns out that KYND is running a 73-second loop over and over trying to promote some business. The points made include, summarizing, not verbatim: if you want to get your program widely heard in the #6 radio market, phone Joel Turner(?) 281-373-1520. Check the coverage map at Radio Locator. 25000 watts. Subject to FCC limitations. Cypress-Houston.

At 1255 UT some CCI from a third station. At 1301 UT, KOKC has started modulating with news, CBS? Never heard that mentioned. 1305 UT dead air. 1306 UT talk show starts, beginning with morning-wake-up bugle call, but KYND loop can still be heard mixing underneath. Are they running this all the time, or only during certain unsold hours? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1530, Oct 1 at 1246 UT, promo/PSA concerning wild animals, ID as ``107-3 and 15-30 Mountain Country``, from NW/SE. That`s KQSC, Colorado Springs, prioritizing its silly little translator, K297BQ; on 1530 supposed to be 15000/15 watts U1 with 1000 during critical hours. Official FCC October sunrise is not until 1315 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540, Sunday October 1 at 1248 UT, infomercial pushing vitamin D supplements, loops NE/SW, must be KXEL Waterloo, Iowa. This semihour used to be occupied by Defunct Elder Jacob O. Meyer of WMLK fame (whose own SW is still not funxional) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1010, Sunday October 1 around 1237 UT, preacher in Spanish with somewhat strange accent, but not exactly gringo. Loops E/W or slightly counterclockwise. #1 suspect is KXXT Tolleson AZ (PhÅnix market), Family Values Radio, 15000/250 watts U5. Official FCC October sunrise is not until 1330 UT. Day pattern is circle tangent eastward, good for us. Schedule is overwhelmingly in English, but the daily lineup has lots of gaps including now:
http://familyvaluesradio1010.com/programguidedaily/
There is a `ConexiÃn Cristiana` at unknown time, and even a woman holding up a Brazilian flag, so could emit some Brazuguese too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15081.8-USB, Oct 1 at 1411, very weak 2-way contact, unseems Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA. 5952.4, Oct 1 at 0023, no signal from Pio XII; must be off, as other Bol & SAm at least carriers are in on 5910.3, 6050.0, 6134.8, 6173.9. Do they close early on Saturday evenings instead of 0230? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Sept 30 at 0516, checking RHC English: this one is off, audiblizing the off-frequency ZY carrier; 6145 is good at S9+20; 6100 is S9+10 but undermodulated; 6000 is S9+10 and undermodulated but better than 6100.

15370, Sept 30 at 2035, S8 open carrier, must be RHC on between transmissions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Oct 1 at 0046, very poor S5 music, presumably VOG reactivated after a few weeks missing from this frequency, but much weaker than formerly, and now 9935 is off. Ivo reported earlier than 9420 was back (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Oct 1 at 0022, Mighty KBC with classic rock at S9 fading to S6 via GERMANY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Oct 1 at 0028, pirate music at S9+5; 0030 cuts off mid-music for most of a minute, resumes; 0038 after another long pause, drama excerpt, from OT radio? 0042 stops and nothing further heard. Lots more logs, all unID:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-LSB, Oct 1 at 0028, banjo music on LSB, 0029 missed announcement, distorted music; 0033 ID by YL once as ``--- Radio``; 0036 distorted YL says ``reports to Underground Radio will be answered by Chris Smolinski``. 0048 recheck, it`s off.

There were a bunch of logs of French music during the previous hour on 6950-LSB, but ended at 0008:

I don`t see any HFU logs of Underground or anything during my time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6965-USB, Oct 1 at 0048, S9+25 torch song, presumably Wolverine Radio with its bigsig; 0052 `Rock Around the Clock`, 0054 Wolverine Radio ID. Many more logs here:

** SPAIN. 17855, Sept 30 at 1805, REE is on at S9+10, but open carrier/dead air! 17715 is S9+10 with SBG modulation; 15520 also audible, and 15390 JBA carrier. Next check at 2036: 17855 is *still* OC/DA, at S8; wake up, Noblejans! 17715 OK at S7-S5; 15520 weaker; 15390 worst and distorted as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed Friday September 29 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.149v-CUSB, good S9+10. Not confirmed Sat Sept 30 at 1431 on HLR 7265-CUSB: via UTwente once again I cannot make about WOR at 1455 check, but some weak music, no doubt CRI.

``Greetings from WBCQ, FYI: Schedule change for WBCQ 9330 broadcast on Saturdays. Effective immediately (9/30/2017), "World of Radio" will be aired one hour earlier - at 5:30 pm Eastern (2130 UT Saturday) instead of at 6:30 pm Eastern (2230 UT Saturday). Our apologies for the short notice period. Thanks, Robert Ellis (WBCQ shortwave program director / board operations)``

Thanks for the advance notice, not something I can depend on from some other stations. Yes, confirmed Sat Sept 30 at 2130 on 9330.171v-CUSB, fair, just after sign-on. (Not sure what replaces at 2230, but I notice after 2300 Blalock the Blaster is playing instead of an AWWW repeat). Online sked not updated yet.

WOR 1897 confirmed Sat Sept 30 at 2300 on WRMI, 11580 (which finally shows on their skedgrid), poor. Also confirmed UT Sunday October 1 at 0200 on 11580, good S9+10/20. Also confirmed UT Sun Oct 1 at 0328 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, good S9+20, about R. Martà 1180, which is 9 minutes into program, so started circa 0319. Next:
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE

** U S A. 9955, September 29 at 2030, filling in the blanx, the Friday show gaining this semihour on WRMI is `Bajo el Sol de Miami` which I hadn`t really listened to before; apparently about the arts, but mostly music, some interviews. Sat Sept 30 at 2030, it`s `Blues Radio International`. Now solely by monitoring, I have almost completed a week`s schedule of 2030s on 9955:

Sat, Blues Radio International
Sun, Studio DX (Italian)
Mon, gospel huxter in English
Tue, unchecked yet
Wed, WORLD OF RADIO
Thu, Frecuencia al DÃa
Fri, Bajo el Sol de Miami

5985, September 29 at 0518, Brother Scare is VP here, new one-hour extension and new frequency for TOM from WRMI-2, 222 degrees to Central America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.94, UT Sat Sept 30 at 0000, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide` listening at first online, as AW talks about transmitter work, #1 on ``7415`` (oops), has been refurbished with two new 4CX35000 tubes, which he got second-hand at a big discount; #1 had a lot of glitches. Tonight also on 5130 and 3250, and just about everything is full power, all // with no delay, he says. I keep listening until the first call interrupts.

Not until 0141 do I tune in SW, as he is about to wrap up, and find that 5130 is not on, but 3249.98 is good at S9+10, and measure #1 as above (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.16v-CUSB, Sat Sept 30 at 1459, tune in to WBCQ ID JBA, 1500 music continues, fund-raiser promo, but cut off at 1501*. I had forgotten to check for the special broadcast from Universe Radio starting at 1000! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130.37-AM, UT Sun Oct 1 at 0039, WBCQ, Marion of Attic is heard guesting on `Radio Timtron Worldwide`, along with Cristina. It seems they are visiting Monticello to do their own show live tomorrow, not only on 7490 but all the other frequencies. Presumably at 21-22 UT Sunday, or expanded?

Now 3250.03 is also on, // 5130. 3250 is S9+20 fading to S7, while 5130 is S9+10 fading to S8. 9330.19v-CUSB at 0045 is running something else. At 0102, Timtron announces that the ``90 meter service will be leaving`` as `Lumpy Gravy` is opening, but 3250 stays on // 5130 until 0103* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat Sept 30 at 1807, WTWW-2 is still AWOL from afternoon frequency; and UT Sunday Oct 1 at 0105, night frequency also AWOL, so strike out for `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7520, Oct 1 at 0057, WWCR is S9+50 but only traces of scratch modulation yet nevertheless splashing out plus/minus 20 kHz; including sub/carrier/spurs such as 7125.2. Wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
