** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 6249.995, July 27 at 0314, after originally hearing it before 2400 UT, another check for reactivated after 6 years and 4 months, RNGE Malabo, and as expected by now over all-dark path, the signal is much better, S9-S7, so I measure the frequency more accurately. Nothing but African pop music heard past 0344, altho others were reporting some periodic IDs in Spanish and the same music repeating on a loop.

My next2 check at 0610: still audible, but now talk definitely in Spanish, noticias, vs storm noise from TX Panhandle, and the NR on the R75 certainly helps (not the NB). Many more reports of it followed from Europe and North America, one from South America, including still testing and asking for reports the following evening; none seen yet from Africa, Asia or Pacific (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, July 27 at 1247, RNZI obviously still on the Pacific rather than PNG antenna as nominally switched to only at 11-13 UT; consequently a good signal here when we normally must strain to hear it or give up. RNZI still claims, ``Bougainville/Papua New Guinea and Timor Transmission 1100-1300 UTC. From 1100-1300 UTC our programme is directed to the North Western Pacific and Asia``, at
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/listen

Dan Slevin is reviewing several films in `At the Movies`, including ``Baby Driver``, with a bad ending; ``Paris Can Wait``, directed by 80-year-old Eleanor Coppola. Includes lots of brief clips. 1254 wraps up with music from Baby Driver, Dave Brubeck jazz from 1961y. 1255 YL with other music fill; 1257 Adrian Sainsbury announces QSY to 6170, one tweet of the Bellbird, off at 1258* and 6170 on at *1259, S9+10 to S9, a bit weaker than 7425 had been, S9+20 to S9+10.

RNZI sked shows nothing but `RNZ News` for the full hour at midnight Friday``, so we have to go to the detailed RNZ National schedule at
http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/schedules
for ``Ramere 28 Hongoingoi 2017`` which is Maori for Friday 28 July 2017 (kudos to them for coming up with their own original names while yet accepting the CE calendar imposed by the Aryan invaders), showing the `All Night Programme` including ``12:30 At the Movies with Simon Morris (RNZ)``. Not the name I heard, twice. Or was that the monicker of a filmaker?

Richard Langley noted the same on 7425 yesterday July 26: ``Fair signal indoors with just whip antenna on the Eton/Grundig Field BT this morning at 1058 UT here in NB. NO BEAM CHANGE AT 1100 UT (and no announcement about it nor IS)!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15085, July 27 at 2018, bandscan hits JBA carrier here. Listening further, BA talk occasionally perceptible with the inimitable intonations by Josiah, of the anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH; so now he is back to earlier broadcasts in the daytime on higher bands than 7585 circa 0200-0500. I had noticed a JBA carrier on 15085 a week or two ago but not logged it. Of course, no legit station is ever using it now, not even Iran. Still past 2033, with brief slight fadeups of his talk. Not that we care to hear what he says in his well-worn diatribes, which are from just another wacky religionist, but with a slightly different angle than most of them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, July 27 at 1728 UT on the G8 at a restaurant in western Enid, promo/sponsorhip of something by ``Tulsa`s Channel 8``, and can`t hear any carrier from local KAMG-LP, nominal 68 watts, so is it finally off? No, just too weak, for back home at 2007 I am again getting the dead air and no 27 kW KTBT Broken Arrow.

BTW, Tulsa is in the confusing position of the original channel 2, KJRH now being on DTV channel 8, while KTUL, the original channel 8 which is still its identity, is really on DTV channel 10; why didn`t they just keep 8? Furthermore, W9WI.com guesses the KTUL extra-citic boosters on RF 24 are also virtually 24, while I would guess they must be ``8`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13845, July 27 at 1237, WWCR is VG for `The Power Hour`, no doubt sporadic E enhancement, and still // blasting 7490 during first hour only. Same via WRMI 26 seconds later on 7780 // 9395, now about equal fair levels. No chance yet to check today at 1400 whether 7780 switch transmitters and azimuths for a signal boost this way as suspected (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, July 27 at 2009, no signal from this WRMI which is scheduled 24 hours; must be off, while S6-S7 on 9395, S5-S6 on 9955, so 31 m propagation is sufficient; also audible on 11580, 11825, 15770 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, July 27 at 2025, KVOH is still on in Thursday extension, with music, presumably Spanish, S9 and wobbling. Their engineering staff must be taking their sweet time to get the `new` transmitter going. Reminder that on Fridays only, they are allegedly back in English at 1900-2100, first quarter gospel music, rest huxterism, not even `Wavescan`. Should they also run overtime on Mondays, as is possible, `Frecuencia al DÃa` is on the schedule at 2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 11775, July 26 at 2052, Caribbean Beacon is still off day frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 5850 // weaker 7730, UT Wed July 26 at 0716, I happen to be awake so check briefly the RAE relay in English via WRMI. It`s *not* the same episode I monitored completely 6 hours earlier on 9395 and which was announced as ``Tuesday``. Now there is an interview with a guest from Wales about the milonga. Unless there was a mixup, does this mean that the first airing of each is at 07 and the repeat next UT day at 01? In that case a news update would also be called for (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 11734.94, July 26 at 2053, very poor signal with song, probably hymn from RÃdio Transmundial, Santa Maria. WRTH kW column shows it`s nominally the most powerful ZY SW station, at 50 kW --- all others less, 250 kW RNA defunct. With BFO I can tell there is a second even weaker carrier, presumably Zanzibar, closer to 11735.0. At 2059 I am only hearing one JBA carrier, and at 2100 none. So seems both of them sign off about 2100*. Aoki shows RTM until 1859*, and nothing else until North Korea from *0330. RTM would do much better on a free channel if it ran on into the night, duh! This one is never heard in our evenings, when a few other 25m Brazilians make it; let alone overnight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed July 26 at 1314, FG Radio via WRMI is closing after some music, as travelgazette.com. Also run across it Wed at 2104 on 9455 saying they are currently focusing on travel, such as violent crime in the Caribbean (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 6250, slightly on the low side: Tnx for tips from Alan Pennington, BDXC-UK of a test transmission heard at 2305, by a reactivated Radio Malabo, and also found by reactivated Brandon Jordan, west Tennessee, at 2323, I quickly check July 26 at 2351 to find very poor level music on 6250, S8 vs S7 noise level, still going past 2403+. If they stay on all night, should improve considerably. Best time for it used to be around 0500-0600 after their sign-on.

This old Malabo frequency, 6250, was last heard in May 2011 per DSWCI DBS, but that appeared to be a mistake, as at that time Bonaire was producing a leapfrog mixing product of 6080 over 6165 another 85 kHz higher on 6250 during the NHK Spanish relay until 0527*. No more chance of that!

The latest real log of Malabo in DXLD appeared to be from me a bimonth earlier in 2011y as in DXLD 11-12: ``6250, RNGE, March 17 at 0543, Spanish talking about events the last few years in Malabo. Fair with usual ute bursts on low side``.

In the DXLD yg now, Rich Ray near Chicago was still hearing it: ``Very very good signal & audio here at 0107z tune in with music then OM with talk (ID?) at 0110z then back to music. Overall 43434 SINPO and S9. Ten Tec RX340 and Wellbrook A330s at 28'``

And Brandon Jordan: ``Radio Malabo is definitely playing a loop; this is the same song after Mariaroza that I heard earlier. Verified with the next song at 0052, this is a musical loop they are playing for the test. Hopefully they ID after it finishes again around 0128 UT if the loop plays out. 73, Brandon Jordan, KM4PBQ, Fayette County, TN EM55

** KUWAIT. 15535-15540-15545, July 26 at 2050, DRM noise detectable at S1, peaking circa 15537 and 15543, and no AM carrier in the middle, of course, from R. Kuwait in English, now inaudible to us even if it were stronger (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, July 26 at 2052, still NO signal from REE`s North American frequency, while sufficient propagation is still verified by the S3 signal on 17715 to South America. I wonder if, like certain other stations, they are turning off deliberately to see if anyone cares? 15520 is S1 and 15390 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1888 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday July 26 at 1315.5 after the only time WRMI ever plays the gh WRMI ID, at 1315.0. It`s fair-good at S8-S9, fading to S7. Also confirmed Wednesday July 26 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490.03-AM, S4-S2 but surely better further east, and now only one day old rather than seven. Also confirmed Wed July 26 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.3v-CUSB, poor, and on 9330.2v by 2355 check. Next:

** U S A. 7780, July 26 at 1302, no signal from WRMI for `The Power Hour`, so is it really off? Originally had been closing at 1200* after TOM, earlier than the other 7 MHz channels, then extended to 1500 for TPH. VOA news is running on 9395 > 9455, and 13845 WWCR is not yet // but seemingly with TPH TOH filler segment. 7490 WWCR remains with replacement gospel huxterism. 1305-1308 different adblox on the two stations until they join for TPH at 1308.

Recheck at 1418, now 7780 is amazingly good at S9+10/20, even better than the two niners. No significant sporadic E this morning, so this makes no sense propagationally, making me again suspect that at some point WRMI is (experimentally?) switching from the NE to a more favorable antenna on 7780, tho still shown as 44 degrees on their grid. Transmitters, 11, 12 and 13, which are normally connected to 315, 315 and 285 azimuth antennas, respectively, on 7570, 5850 and 7730, are all finished with Brother Scare at 1400 so then available for 7780. 285 was used for 7780 previously at other dayparts, and this would also comply with Arizona listener complaint to Jeff on Monday`s show that they need a better signal that way. Since the final hour at 14 UT is only 7 am MST, it matters more than 5-7 am (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, Wed July 26 at 0719, as I am unfortunately awake, I check for `The Power Hour` as long scheduled on this WWCR at 2-5 am CT weekdays (07-10 UT, not 08-11 UT currently as they claim) --- no, it`s gone, instead playing country/maybe gospel song, probably `Worldwide Country Radio` filler. So is `TPH` now struggling to survive beyond the death of Joyce Riley, having to cut costs? Or is WWCR taking the opportunity to get rid of most of it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930 & 12105, July 26 at 2052, two-thirds of WTWWs are AWOL, while 9475 is on with SFAW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 11775, July 25 at 1736 check, CB is still off. Current situation appears to be active on night frequency 6090, not on day frequency (or 6090 could be running all day? Check whether it cut off circa 1000 or fade in before 2200) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, UT Wednesday July 26 at 0100, I happen to be on the road, so without the usual distraxions, listen to the entire RAE Argentina to the World hour. Usual good reception from WRMI on the BSR-1 caradio, but occasional fades and crosstalk from something else which attenuation would probably have ridded.

Fernando opens the broadcast claiming this is the Tuesday 0700 airing on 5850 and 7730. Must be playing the wrong file --- but does it really make any difference? Originally they pledged to update the news during the intervening 6 hours, which would hardly be worth the trouble overnight in Bs As. Are there any other changes?

Fernando says he is back on air after a week off visiting Uruguay with his family. In his always very informal style the news follows, and I do have the impression he is translating it from original Spanish on the fly, rather than prepared in advance. Annoying music bed continues to be played during the news, brief fade-ups between items.

Next show at 0116 is `Argentines with No Frontiers`, interviewing Lourdes Rivera, an Argentine lawyer in Manhattan after going to Cornell in Ithaca. 0138 final segment is by YL about ``RaÃl Carnota(?), Innovator``, self-taught musician and guitarist, with lots of music segments. The multi-lingual ID reel played only thrice, at 0105, 0115, 0155, finally followed by headlines, frequency announcement and a bit more music.

After 0200 I am still tuned to 9395 and hear Radio Prague in English. Yes, that now shows on the skedgrid, with 9395 Oldies not resuming until 0230, which is when Prague plays again on 11580, after Ukraine at 0200 --- but too weak to confirm that here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7585, July 25 at 0311, JBA carrier, tnx tip from Rick Barton, AZ, that anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH was back on the air, but very weak for him until off at 0312*. Had not been reported since June 30. Not heard by Ron Howard or Volodya Salmaniw then, but Walt had Josiah the next night July 26 at 0220 an hour before BC sunset with fair signal and good modulation; not rechecked here yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 24, July 25 at 1420 UT, KOKH ``25`` OKC megawatt is unusually breaking up as if suffering from CCI. Tropo map shows some enhancement in OK & KS, but no other channels are showing anything unusual. This happens on one of my antennas, but not the other, maybe a fluke.

Nearest other RF 24s are per W9WI.com: K24IW-D in Ardmore, close to same heading as OKC, 500 watts but CP for 15 kW; the KTUL Tulsa booster really in McAlester, 600 watts (and application for a 700-watt one in Bartlesville(?)) both listed as ``Tulsa``. Reversely there are four CPs in Kansas afar, Colby, Chapman, and Russell, obviously assigned in a row as K24LE, LF and LG; and Wichita CP anear, KGPT-CD with 15 kW.

BTW, KOKH on 25-2 is now Charge! for some time, not Grit as in W9WI.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1887 monitoring: confirmed Monday July 24 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.2v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Tuesday July 25 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, good.

Since we have lost any Thursday or Friday airtimes on WRMI, but there are plenty on Tuesday and Wednesday, I have decided from this week, July 25, to produce WORLD OF RADIO a day earlier on Tuesdays (subject to change if I just can`t get it done in time). So the first WRMI broadcast will be Tuesday at 2130 on 9455 & 15770, rather than having to wait until Saturday at 2300 on 11580. First on WBCQ also Tuesday at 2330 on 9330v-CUSB instead of Thursday. And the only 7490 WBCQ airing Wednesday at 2100 will be fresh instead of a week old (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Viz.:

Hi! Heard Worldofradio Tuesday [July 25] over WRMI, 2130 UT, 15770. SINPO 43233 (Jon Collins, Birmingham UK, Tecsun PL-660, telescopic whip, DX LISTENING DIGEST) What was the interference at 3-level?? (gh)

Also confirmed WOR 1888 first SW broadcast on new schedule, Tuesday July 25 at 2130 on WRMIs 9455 & 15770. At first 15770 was better, then faded, then roughly equal at fair. Also confirmed Tuesday July 25 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.20v-CUSB, good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11825, July 25 at 1257, WRMI run-up to 1300 opening Brother HyStairical, Bob Biermann with IDs and music, but can we call it an IS? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, July 25 at 1251, `The Power Hour` is still on this WWCR, but for the first hour only. At 1259, Brady announces the toll-free phone number for TPH, then switches right into the new gospel huxter which bumped TPH, Challenge Ministries International. TPH also on WRMI 9395, but 9455 is still // 9955 Eslovaquia in Spanish, until joining in at 1300 for VOA News in English relay, with mid-ID at 1302. The presumed still running WWCR // for TPH again from 1308, 13845, is a JBA carrier, as is the WRMI // 7780. By 1410 for the third hour, 9395, 9455 and 13845 are about equal at poor-fair level, and 7780 beamed out into the north Atlantic remains a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 9930 & 12105, July 25 at 1737 check, all three WTWW transmitters are OFF. 9475 might instead be on night frequency 5830 as has happened before while Ted dozes, but cannot detect it now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
