** BRAZIL. 9665.770, April 9 at 0043, surprised to find the ZY here, R. Voz MissionÃria, jumped way up to the hi side of 9665, rather than slightly on the lo side. Bit of a het from another carrier JBA on 9666.82, (and nothing on 9665.0). RVM carrier is wobbling a bit and at next check 0455 I put it on 9665.76, preacher in Brazuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6070, April 9 at 0051, CFRX talkshow with W&M, laughter, about bands and clubs (not meter bands, or radio clubs, but music & venues); 0056 mentions ``world of music`` and outro as `In the Studio`. I`m checking whether `Geeks & Beats` is still on air, as previously scheduled, peripherally apt for a listing in DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS. Had been 0004-0100 UT Sundays (and also 23 hours earlier, prepeat?). Still haven`t deconfirmed it then, and it could still be on the CFRB schedule, if there were one, somewhen else (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, UT Sunday April 9 at 0507, no signal from Radio Verdad, which normally runs until 0610v* except UT Mondays off two hours earlier. Dr Madrid has sent notifications of various problems with his video webcast, etc., but nothing lately about SW being off. Bob Wilkner, FL, did log it earlier this date at 0000-0035 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.92, April 9 at 0608, no signal from Voice of Nigeria, which had been quite reliable for the Hausa hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7615, April 9 at 0503, Station YHWH is on at S6-S7-S9, usual anti-Jesus screed playback probably starting circa 0300, and about to finish; frequently on air but not every night (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1872 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday April starting at 0322 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+10. Next:

** ALGERIA [non]. 13820, April 8 at 1821, ME Music, maybe Qur`an on S4 signal; some burbling, but unseems jamming, as RTA via FRANCE at 18-20 does not expect the Cubans to keep jamming Radio Martà here for old times` sake, that having moved to 13605 for the A-season (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780, April 8 at 0559, still no signal from RNA, but I check for the weakling ZYs on 25m. Not all of them are on either. Only carriers are: 11935-, 11815 which is S7 with Brazilian music from RBC, 11765-. The others which might have been on but are not: 11925+, 11895, 11856+, 11735-. Then 31m at 0604: 9630, 9665-, 9675-, 9819- have signals; 9725-, 9645+, 9565 do not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9955, April 7 at 0544, WRMI is JBA along with pulse jamming, at the rate of 4 times per second, which does match the pulsing I was hearing on 7852 next to CHU (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Friday April 7 at 0540, no signal from RNZI, which is supposed to start at 0459. Maybe it`s a maintenance break. 11725 back in biz when next checked Saturday April 8 at 0559, VG S9+10 as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RWANDA [non]. 15420, Saturday April 8 at 1812, very poor signal with some talk modulation, weekly hour broadcast of R. Itahuka via MADAGASCAR still scheduled here in A-17. Ivo is still showing the language as Kirundi instead of Kinyarwanda (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830+, April 7 at 2233, no RTTY, but JBA carrier offset, compared to nearby stations, slightly to the hi side, which is typical of TRT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15620, April 8 at 1815, African? language, poor S6, but stronger than 15610 WEWN, 15580 VOA Botswana. HFCC shows 15620 at 1800-1830 is IBB in Arabic via Vatican.

15630, April 8 at 1815, another African language, poor S7. This one is VOA Amharic via Woofferton UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 17530, April 8 at 1814, poor S3 signal in English, must be VOA Greenville to Africa at 1700-1830 in A17. VOA is on 17530 from 1300 to 2030 with Somali, Kirundi, English, Swahili and French, via sites Vatican, Botswana, SÃo TomÃ, Greenville. Aoki shows the English segments (also 1500-1600 via Botswana) are *jammed by the ChiCom, but not likely to be bothered by that back here. If the MUF improve a bit (a lot?), the Greenville segment could inboom here off the back. This sesquihour is now the ONLY English from Greenville, except for Radiograms (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1872 monitoring: confirmed Friday April 7 at 2230 on WRMI 11580, good, // 5950 barely audible; 6855 is a JBA carrier and presumably still with something else. WOR also confirmed Friday April 7 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.02v-CUSB. Not confirmed Saturday April 8 at 1430 on HLR 7265-CUSB via UTwente --- nothing audible but noise, no CRI either past 1500 (but HLR may have been on anyway). Also confirmed Saturday April 8 at 2230 on WBCQ 9329.2v-CUSB, fair. Next:

Sun 0310v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to SW

** U S A. 9930, Sat April 8 at 1823, WTWW-2 with `Theater Organ from the Ozarx``, ``Only Have Eyes for You``, Bob Heil then introducing showpiece ``What Are You Waiting for, Mary?``. Huge S9+40 signal and no complaints about the modulation/distortion this time, nor hardly any selective fading, so I can receive in AMS wideband mode on the NRD-545, something rarely appropriate for any SW signal. 1831, `Misty`; 1838 outro theme, 1839 finally ends with canned ID, into Amateur Radio Newsline #2056. So did TOFTO start way late at 1810 or was it an extended show? Still accompanied by parasitic spurs on 9942.9 & 9917.1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 6180, April 6 at 0659, JBA carrier presumably from SÃo TomÃ, and no signal on 11780 with RNA still silent. Here`s why, tnx to Ron Howard, April 5:

``FYI, Posted to WRTH Facebook page today by Uender Josà Silva Marques: La Radio Nacional de la AmazÃnia de BrasÃlia en Brasil que transmite em onda corta 6180 khz y 11780 khz, ya estÃn seleccionados que proporcionan energÃa pero les falta el dinero proveniente del gobierno para iniciar el proceso, las dos frecuencias estÃn por debajo de Lunes retrasado. Serà capaz de volver en unos dÃas asà que depende de federal gobierno proporcionar el dinero para contratar los servicios de generaciÃn de energÃa. La informaciÃn que viene da parte tÃcnica da emisora brasileÃa del senor Noe Santana Cesar, Un saludo desde Brasil y buenas escuchas 73!``

[gh`s translation:] RNA, BrasÃlia, on SW 6180 and 11780 kHz, have already been selected to be supplied power, but money from the government is lacking to start the process. The two frequencies have been delayed since Monday [sic]. It will be capable of resuming in a few days depending on the federal government providing the funding to contract for electricity generation. This information comes from Mr Noe Santana Cesar at the technical section of the station. Greetings from Brasil and good listening, 73!

Both are still off April 7 at 0053 check of 6180, JBA carrier from East Turkistan and would you believe that XEPPM is even splattering upon it a bit from 6185; and at 0059 nothing on 11780 (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1872, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, April 7 at 0100, I happen to catch RHC Spanish when it is making a frequency announcement, with a flub so may have been live: 15230, 13740, 11670, 11840, 9535, 9710, 6060; and from 03 to 06 UT: 5040; until 0400*: 11760 (yes, 11760 is already on now too; but no mention of 11830 & 11850 always accompanying 11840); and the three 24-hour FM frequencies, 91.7 Isla de Juventud, 102.5 La Habana, 103.1 Pinar del Rio, Mayabeque & Artemisa. Expect some changes as of April 9 when Arnie says his delayed A-17 schedule goes into effect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, April 7 at 0050, VP carrier from R. Chaski, but better than usual with some talk, music modulation, until autocutoff at 0104:58*, which is 47 seconds later than last catch one week ago, March 31 until 0104:11*, so averaging 6.7 seconds later per, slippage right on schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, April 7 at 0114.25, SLBC carrier on now, JBA; prÃlude music JB audible by 0114:54; and last pip of mis-timesignal at 0115:05, like last time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 11540, April 6 at 1253, talk in tonal language, fair S7, some deep fades, cut off at 1258*. HFCC shows it`s IBB in the ``bod`` dialect of Tibetan via TINIAN at 1200-1300, supposed to continue another hour until 1400 via Kuwait, but unheard before I tuned on. Was one of the better signals on band, and no sign of jamming, yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 6 at 2200, VP carrier presumably VOT still on correct frequency to North America. Mark Coady, Ontario, heard the April 4 broadcast better than I and says they introduced with the date as November 13! Apparently back to the future on April 5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7416.0-USB, UT Friday April 7 at 0111, net of ``Big Bend`` stations. Must be Texas Civil Air Patrol. Net control is Big Bend 20, calling for different check-ins, and getting few replies during minute-long pauses. First it`s Group 1? Only check-in heard is Big Bend 11, who has negative traffic; 0113, Group 2? Then Group 3? Retune at 0116, now asking for out-of-state check-ins to the ``Big Bend HF Net``: none; 0117 asking for ``any stations`` at all? Nothing further heard. BB20 makes a beep at end of each transmission; also hear some QRM? from regular noise bursts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1872 monitoring: NOT confirmed Thursday April 6 at 1155, the 1130 first airing on WRMI 9955, since that has been replaced by `Informativo G24`: see separate log. I hope to get some other time(s) on WRMI to replace it. Still confirmed the next broadcast, Thursday April 6 at 2130 on WRMI 11580, poor; and Thu Apr 6 at 2330 on WBCQ 9328.95v-CUSB, fair.

WOR 1872 Headlines: Alaska, Albania, Antarctica, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Cuba, Egypt, Ethiopia and non, Germany non, Indonesia, Korea North non, Kurdistan non, Lithuania non, Oklahoma, Paraguay, Romania, Russia, Sikkim, Solomon Islands, Somaliland, South Carolina non, Sri Lanka, Sudan & Sudan South nons, Thailand, Tibet non, Turkey, USA, Vanuatu

** U S A. 7730 // 5850, Thursday April 6 at 0705, WRMI is again airing a PCJ Radio International hour, and it is `The Happy Station` as Keith Perron mentions, for April 2, still celebrating April Fool`s Day by being silly --- but practical joxe should be played on other days when they are less expected.

6855 // 9955, Thursday April 6 at 1155 I am expecting to hear the first SW broadcast of WORLD OF RADIO 1872 back on two frequencies --- except this airing has been replaced without notice by something in Spanish, a news magazine called `Informativo G-24`, with reports concerning the Mocoa mudslide, and then the St. Pete subway bombing, but coming from ``Radio Internacional de EspaÃa``, not Radio Exterior. Seems to be a WRMI produxion as a canned ID for it by Dino is interspersed. Closing says it`s Wednesdays at 9 pm Miami time [only = 0100 UT Thursdays] on ``99.55 kHz``. ID at 1200 and over to Radio Prague in English. 6855 was clear but 9955 with some lite pulse jamming.

Later I recheck the WRMI sked grid and find it also shows at 1130 UT Thursdays. And there`s a new entry about it at the top of the Programming page:

``INFORMATIVO G24 se emite en Radio Miami International los MiÃrcoles a las 21 Horas Local, tambiÃn se emite en Colombia y Europa. Analiza las situaciones que ocurren en el mundo y en las AmÃricas, con un lenguaje descriptivo al oyente y las voces de los protagonistas de las noticias para que usted entienda el contexto geopolÃtico de la informaciÃn. Conduce y dirige la periodista Colombiana Sandra Valencia Especialista en estudios PolÃticos y MÃster en relaciones Internacionales. No competimos con la inmediatez nuestra apuesta es el anÃlisis porque queremos que usted sea su propio analista. Siga el INFORMATIVO G24 en redes sociales Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube http://www.CanalG24.TV ``

More at its own website, from which the above is edited, showing altho this is weekly on WRMI, in Colombia it`s M-F at noon local = 17 UT on Colmundo, 1440 (which is HJNZ, 5 kW in MedellÃn). One logo shows it means Global 24 Press --- any relation to the defunct program in English via WRMI, Global 24??? Seems unlikely, yet quite a coincidence in nomenclature.

6855, April 7 at 0126, now this WRMI is // 7570 with Overcomer Ministry. Latest sked shakeup for 6855 shows TOM at 01-03; also added Eslovaquia in Spanish at 0430-0500 // 9955.

BTW, I am hearing a lot of non-Brother Scare voices lately as I quickly tune across Overcomer frequencies; why? If he`s on vacation, ailing, or dead, there are endless old recordings of the Last Day Prophet of God to rerun into eternity; has there been a coup? Otherwise he would be gearing up for Eas-, I mean Passover (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7504.98v, April 7 at 0110, WRNO is already in Chinese within the first hour shortly after sign-on. Usually it`s been during the second or third hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, April 7 at 0122 UT, South Asian song is somewhat atop the QRM, so apparently KBXD Dallas is still on with R. Namaste. I was wondering, since haven`t heard it in some time. Best to check around sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7852, April 7 at 0108, steady pulse jamming too close to CHU, not noticed here before. Rate is 4 times per second. Sounds just like Cuban jamming against broadcasters, but is it, perhaps a stray? Need to clock the rate of that when there is only one at a time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. Correxion to this report: frequency logged was 7365, as implied in the body, not typo 7465; fixed:

7365, March 29 at 0546, R. Martà is loud & clear, no jamming, while 7435 is jammed against nothing. The DentroCuban Jamming Command still hasn`t figured out the new RM schedule, which is in HFCC for all to see, i.e. 7435 only at 03-05, preceded and succeeded by 7365 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.924, April 5 at 0547, VON is already on with pop music prÃlude, about 10 minutes before it will start its percussive identification signal prior to Hausa hour. Usual very good level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11590, April 5 at 1946, Overcomer Ministry on new frequency, but not Brother HyStairical himself at the moment, S4 but good modulation, and seems // but not synchro with 11580 WRMI next door and its // 11825, which are both much weaker! Ivo Ivanov says this moved off 11600 via BULGARIA due to a conflict with Denge Kurdistane which is only on 11600 now. The BS time started March 30 as 1600-2000, changed April 4 to 1800-2030 due to another conflict on 11590 with Radio Ashna via Thailand at 1600-1730! Not the first time there has been a pileup on 11600 involving ``Secretbrod``. 11590 is reported as 50 kW at 126 degrees, but sounds like it could be aimed reversely toward North America, as has been scheduled elsewhen from Bulgaria (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1872, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 4 at *2158, VOT on with IS prior to 2200 English to NAm, vs RTTY, which seems to stop at 2200, but not sure if in deference. VOT starts with a timesignal, but s/on announcement with frequency unreadable. Yesterday this transmission was on 9735, as Sheryl Paskiewicz, WI reported, but I suspected it was a mistake. She was also monitoring at the same time today and agrees I was right, it`s back on 9830. Too bad, as 9735 appears to be QRM-free (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1872, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1871 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday April 4 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, good with nearby storm noise. Missed checking April 4 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329v. Also confirmed Wednesday April 5 at 1340, the 1315.5 airing on WRMI 9955, good but occasional noise bursts which could be QRM (not jamming), or out of own transmitter? Also confirmed Wed April 5 at 2100 on WBCQ, 7490, poor; also confirmed Wed April 5 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.95v-CUSB, fair.

The WRMI schedule grid updated April 4 now shows 6855 at 11-13 UT is on System C = // 9955 again including WOR and other DX programs, rather than // System H Oldies on 9395. Assuming that is correct,

** U S A. Correxion to this report: 9328.934V-CUSB, not 9338.934v-CUSB; I am making too many mistaxe! But I must fix them ASAP:

9328.934V-CUSB, March 30 at 1420, Brother Scare via WBCQ is more than 1 kHz low now, and audibly varying as I try to measure it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, April 4 at before and after 1959 BZ ID, WRMI has been playing World Music instead of TOM as scheduled. Segments of WM have appeared unexpectedly before. However next day, April 5 at 2030 check, 9955 is back to TOM // 11825, but not BS himself at the moment, and with some pulse jamming. See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

11580, April 4 at 2000, WRMI is VP with jazz, i.e. `Jazz from the Left` as scheduled this hour on Tuesdays; and should also be on // 6855, too weak here to tell (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Tuesday April 4 at 1952, WTWW-2 with distorted country music. What`s become of Dave Ramsey, gone again?

9475, April 4 at 1953, then I check WTWW-1 and find SFAW with modulation and carrier breaking up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 9610, April 5 at 1156, Vatican Radio closing Spanish via Greenville USA, violating Separation of Church and State, 1158 playing IS as customary at the end of transmissions. Checking this because Mark Coady, Ontario had reported hearing RHC on 9610 // other RHC frequencies, April 3 at 1140. Maybe then, but if so, would be in a big collision. I do hear RHC on 9640 as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 11735, April 4 at 2052, ZBC is VP, but with BFO I hear two carriers slightly apart beating against each other. This correlates with Wolfgang BÃschel`s observation on March 23: ``Two program strings on TZA even 11735.0 kHz, and another string visible nearby on 11734.966 kHz. Heard a male announcer, but also a steady music played`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780, April 4 at 0124, no signal from RNA/RNB; ditto 6180 April 4 at 0136 tuneby (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9630.0, April 4 at 0120, VP signal with talk, seems same as on R. Aparecida, 11856.1, VP S5, but both too weak to make a // match. Seems like 9630 had been off for a while (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910, April 4 at 0138, poor signal in Spanish so AlcaravÃn Radio is back after missing a few nights. Also a VP signal on 6010+, probably its sibling Voice of Thy Conscience reactivated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, April 4 at 0121, VOG is S8 with music, instrumental version of ``Sounds of Silence``, while on 9935 there are really sounds of silence â no signal. Consulting HFCC, you would not expect either, as ERT neglects to register anything, encouraging some other stations to be on 9420, including Iran`s silent Kamalabad site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.89-AM, April 4 at 0132, pirate music at S8 but off at 0134*. One other log of this unID, by Joe Filipkowski, Warwick RI, on 6924.9 at 0055-0059, on HF Underground (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9735, April 4 at 0116, no signal from TRT as scheduled 00-02 east-northeastward in Turkish; VP signal on 9770 in Spanish, maybe no // 9870. However, 9420 Greece in quite well.

Checking 9735 since Sheryl Paszkiewicz, Wisconsin, tipped me that VOT English at 2230 April 3 was there ex-9830. I meant to check for that today, but didn`t get around to it. For years, I have been calling for VOT to get off 9830 with its RTTY, so maybe they have, but could also be another of their numerous mistakes, so check whether 9735 is still English subsequently from 2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4020-USB, UT Tue April 4 at 0141, Air Force MARS net, informal contact between two guys, both good signals, with no IDs, just overs, discussing how to check boxes on paperwork, and lamenting lack of manuals to explain it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7637-USB, UT Tue April 4 at 0126, Civil Air Patrol net giving a crypto series and then repeating it for a contact who could not copy it as well as I:

EYRGF PLCFB HSCGW GFSYT R46DE TGFES TGFYT GVSYE

First time, each Group twice, second time once, always purely fonetikaly and 100% copy here. The contact station was almost inaudible to both of us. So what are they really trying to say? Why all this cloak-and-dagger from a CIVILian agency which is mainly involved in rushing to plane crashes? I knew it was CAP because a ``Triblade 20`` ID ensued. Last October 4 at 0130 I had those on 7615, and also something similar on 7637 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1871 monitoring: confirmed Monday April 3 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.2v-CUSB, fair; also confirmed UT Tuesday April 4 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG. Next:

** U S A [and non]. 6855, April 4 at 0122, Cuban pulse jamming is here over WRMI music which still seems // 9395 Oldies channel. Has Jeff ever put an exile program on 6855 to provoke this? At this time, no jamming on 9955 during gospel huxter in English, but some lite pulsing audible under Spanish DX program at 0134 playing distorted 1956y recording in Chinese of a station on 9410, 9774 and 15375, i.e. Fu Hsing, Taiwan. That would be `Frecuencia al DÃa`, preceded by `Coming Home`.

Jeff White already replies: ``That's wild, Glenn. No, there has never been any Cuban exile programming on 6855. In fact, the only Cuban exile programming we have now is 7:30-8:00 pm Eastern Time on 9955 Monday-Friday. It's 7:00-8:00 pm this week, but going to 7:30-8:00 pm as of next week [2330-2400 UT]. That's it. Maybe the Cubans don't like Oldies? Jeff`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
