** CANADA. 7850-CUSB, Feb 5 at 1410, CHU is nominal, trace on 14670-CUSB, and inaudible but presumably active on 3330-CUSB. 7850 and 3330 had been missing Feb 4 at 0435/0452 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 4900, Feb 5 at 1405, music at S4 vs CODAR peaking S7, talk unseems Mandarin. Similar but not // programming and signal to 4940, V. of Strait, Fuzhou. Ron Howard replies to my previous unID 4900:

``FYI - UNID 4900 kHz.
http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:1707#2105

Note; MAUNO(Finland), Thanks very much for examining it together!

-1110-
6115 kHz Voice of Strait(tent.), fair to good signal
9505 kHz Voice of Strait(tent.), // 6115 kHz same program

Live stream : http://www.zuiaishiting.com/radio/fj/28.html
same program "News station" and "Minnan station".

Special schedule for Chinese New Year's Spring Festival ??
-1145- still no-signal both 4900 and 4940 kHz ...

1200- QSY both frequency;
4900 <--- 6115
4940 <--- 9505

It is not the same program but a separate program. Expected schedule:
*1000(?)- 1200 6115, 9505
1200 - 1600* 4900, Minnan program
1200 - 1600* 4940, News program

RE: Chinese New Year's Spring Festival/Holiday: Most employees in China have at least seven days off work, while students take one month absence from school. It's the longest Chinese holiday! Chinese New year was on January 28. Ron, San Francisco``

Well, Feb 5 is nine days after January 28, so is 4900 here to stay? Notably it`s in the local different language, Amoy, than 4940. And what does Minnan mean? It`s now in Aoki of Feb 5:

``4900 VOICE OF STRAIT 1200-1600 1234567 Amoy 50 140 Fuzhou CHN 2606N 11924E VOS Amoy b16

Meanwhile, the old frequency is listed as, from same coÃrdinates:
4940 VOICE OF STRAIT 1200-1600 1234567 Chinese 50 140 Fuzhou CHN
4940 VOICE OF STRAIT 1500-1530 ......7 English "Focus on China"
4940 VOICE OF STRAIT 2230-0400 1234567 Chinese 50 140 Fuzhou``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 5 at 0711, RHC only frequency still on, for weekly Esperanto, during song, S9+40. BTW, Claudio Galaz has confirmed by monitoring that the third airing on Sundays has been shifted an hour earlier to 2130 on 15370. Perhaps the French department complained about getting preÃmpted at 2230? This makes sense as there had been a one-hour break on 15370 between 21 and 22.

17580, Sunday Feb 5 at 1446, RHC is S9+20 of dead air; 17730 overmodulates Arnie at S9+20, while 17750 has lighter more pleasant modulation at S9+10. This is during `En Contacto` at 1435-1449. I`ve noticed that Arnie is speaking Spanish extremely rapidly now, altho I can still understand him, evidently hustling to cram as much info as possible into the 2 minutes or whatever allotted to him, a bit of this, a bit of that, propagation info (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 9900, Feb 5 at 1427, weak Qur`an and then talk at S5. Thought it might be Cairo, but at this hour it`s VIRI in Hindi, 1420-1520, 500 kW due east from Sirjan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 42, 20, 11, Feb 5 at 1702 UT, with fog this morning not yet burnt off, check for locally-enhanced tropo. Full UHF/VHF DTV bandscan finds Bad signals on these channels, all of which correlate with Tulsa/Muskogee, altho at least one other OK station is on each of them, mostly translators or LD.

FCC`s repacking will soon shake up the entire TV bands, eliminating everything above 36. Hedging bets, e.g. KWTV OKC ``9`` on RF 39 already owns KSBI RF 23, which is where I bet KWTV will wind up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA [and non]. 9775, Feb 5 at 1422, hymn by choir, unknown language but recognizable as ``Wonderful Words of Life``. Surely a missionary station, BUT per Aoki --- only thing on 9775 at any time, is CNR2, China Business Radio, at 0900-1605 & 2055-0200, 150 kW at 270 degrees from Beijing 491 site. A.k.a. Voice of the Economy, per WRTH 2017.

In this case, better info in HFCC: 9775 at 1330-1430, SLBC, Trincomalee, SRI LANKA, 125 kW at 345 degrees in Hindi. Must be one of their gospel-huxter clients, never such detail with HFCC. Let`s try EiBi:

Here we go: it`s FEBA India at 1400-1430 daily in a variety of languages, NOT including Hindi! Only English being Mondays 1415-1430.

Also with weak USB 2-way QRM at 9775.5. I`m always looking for a carrier on 9774, which if I ever hear it, will be Fu Hsing BS, Taiwan, per Aoki only 10 kW ND from Kuanyin, in Chinese at 04-06, 08-10, 11-13 and 23-01 --- but I believe Ron Howard has been reporting it inactive, and hardly active on its other frequency, 9410 at same hours, which clashes with China, and several other stations; and per Aoki from same transmitter also Chinese numbers at 0400-0430 daily, XingXing GBD2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9785+, Feb 5 at 1425, VOT IS, poor at S3-S5, so today TRT has failed to prolong wrong frequency 12035, which is off as it should be by now after English. Also a second 9785 signal slightly different frequency with SAH, double het with BFO. It could be triple: HFCC and Aoki show CRI Thai until 1427 from Kunming site; and also CNR8 in Korean until 1500 from Beijing site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1863 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday February 5 at 0030 on WBCQ 9329.84v-CUSB, very poor. Also confirmed Sun Feb 5 starting at 0428:10 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM: Vern introduces, WOR opening edited out the country list allowing as little music as possible. Good S9+30! And no CWQRM this week. Next:

Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15670, Sunday Feb 5 at 1411, S4-S2 open carrier. KSDA Guam finishes at 1400 daily, maybe that; OR VOA Greenville testing 62-kW transmitter in preparation for Radiogram, Sunday only at 1930. Such tests are often suspected after 14 UT, probably when day shift starts at GB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

A digit was dropped from the c/off time, fixed:

** PERU. 5980, Feb 4 at 0103, JBA carrier from R. Chaski detectable despite pointless Cuban pulse jamming, on R. Mart? frequency which doesn`t come on for another six hours! Until Chaski autocutoff at 0107:18.5*, which is 40.0 seconds later than last catch 6 nights ago, Jan 29 until 0106:38.5*, or averaging 6-2/3 seconds later per, right on slippage schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA [and non]. 6072-6108, Feb 4 at 0440, splash from still distorted University Network 6090 audible out this far, i.e., plus/minus 18 kHz, and really bothering 6080 V of Turkey attempting English to North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Feb 4 at 0454, YL robotic English marine weather, VP S7 at same level as noise.

2598-USB, Feb 4 at 0455, sounds like same YL with robotic marine weather, gale warning, mentions times in EST, and then AST; slow fades past 0458. Surprised to find this stronger than 2749, not usually the case with NS vs NL distances. Don`t have two receivers at hand to match them, but at this hour may well be // and both from QuÃbec as per Canadian CG listings, from most recent start times, and nothing further after these for a few hours:
0437, 2598, VCF Les Escoumins, site: Natashquan QC 50 08 40 -61 48 00
0437, 2749, VCF Les Escoumins, site: La VerniÃre QC 47 21 26 -61 55 36
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. 6754-USB, Feb 4 at 0435, CHR with Thule aviation weather, VG at S9+30, surprising since I just noticed 7850 CHU inaudible. What a difference a MHz of MUF makes. Or rather, CHU seems to be OFF, as at 0452, nothing audible on 3330 either! Yet 3485-USB New York Radio is in well (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 4 at 0445, R. Rebelde is still off, while 5040 RHC is on and so is 4765 R. Progreso. 5025 is back on at 1349 check, per typical behavior lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Feb 4 at 0440, RHC Spanish is AWOL; and so is RHC English at 0644 check.

[and non] 6165, Feb 4 at 0443, RHC is very strong at S9+50, better than usual, so the undermodulation is not so much of a drawback. Also splashing plus/minus 14 kHz to 6151-6179, so forget about pulling 6160 CKZN past this as used to be possible. (BTW, CKZU is still off and inquiry by Colin Newell to someone at CBC Vancouver gets no definite word about its status) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 4 at 0103, JBA carrier from R. Chaski detectable despite pointless Cuban pulse jamming, on R. Martà frequency which doesn`t come on for another six hours! Until Chaski autocutoff at 010:18.5*, which is 40.0 seconds later than last catch 6 nights ago, Jan 29 until 0106:38.5*, or averaging 6-2/3 seconds later per, right on slippage schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [and non]. 7315, Feb 4 at 0640, S9+30 halting robotic voice about Israel, attributed to Breaking Israel News. Not hoarse, and not emotional, which is a pleasant respite from Brother HyStairical himself, as this is merely the TOM disservice via WHRI, and // not synchro with 7570 WRMI, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240-, Sat Feb 4 at 1752, JBA carrier, presumed R. Munansi via WWRB. Slightly on low side as measured previously but not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 212 kHz, Feb 4 at 0521, NDB Morse ID repeating as CFV, which per
http://www.dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm
is Coffeyville KS. (Seems to me to be on 213, but listed at 212).

521 kHz, Feb 4 at 0525, beacon INE. (Seems to be on 520 but listed as 521). Location: Kona AP near Missoula, Montana. Well, that`s not bad.

But I have had zero luck hearing any European LWBC, not even carriers, when others are reporting them from various parts of North America. I guess the NRD-545 plus Wellbrook ALA-330S antenna are inadequate for them. But at least I log a few beacons during such descents (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 17895, Sat Feb 4 at 1745, VOA is good with discussion of early Mercury astronaut program; some deep fades, on BST-1 caradio. TG for SMG relaying VOA, violating Separation of Church & State. Sked 16-18 UT, 250 kW, 144 degrees toward ME/EAf, but plenty signal back to here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1863 monitoring: confirmed Friday February 3 at 2230, on 3 x WRMI: 11580 VG, 6855 good, 5950 JBA. Not confirmed the Sat 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, but a JBA carrier at 0055 (while 9265 WINB and 7490 WBCQ are audible). Not confirmed Sat Feb 4 at 1531 on HLR 7265-CUSB: via UTwente SDR, I strain to hear even a snatch of the WOR theme, but two other weak stations only, CRI Hindi via East Turkistan, and Azad Kashmir Radio? BUT, let it play and at 1556 recheck, now WOR is in well atop the QRM! Did HLR come on late, or was there a drastic change in propagation the last few minutes? However, my audio is looping and skipping. I HOPE that`s the UTwente or internet connexion fault to here, rather than transmitted that way. Only a few seconds overlap with crash start of CRI Russian at *1600.

** U S A. 15770, Fri Feb 3 at 2132, WRMI is re-re-re-re-re-playing the CDXA special yet again, 6 months after original airing! In Spanish but English ID at the moment; marked different anniversaries of club, of Ecos del Torbes, Venezuela, ex-4980, and of `AmÃrica en Antena` show. Guest English announcer manages to mispronounce CristÃbal and TÃchira. This bumps `Studio DX` in Italian, scheduled for Fri 2130 on 15770.

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.

[and non] Speaking of COLOMBIA, I haven`t heard 5910 in several weeks of bandscanning past it at various evening hours, altho I`ve seen a few reports of AlcaravÃn Radio. The only B16 blockage times are 01-03 Romania, 0430-0500 Lithuania (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Feb 4 at 0501, WRMI with `TruNews` discussing a CFR article by Rose Brooks in Foreign Policy about ``3 ways to get rid of Trump before 2020``, culminating in a military coup as last resort (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.1-AM, Feb 4 at 0428, WBCQ is VP at S6, and off-frequency to the high side recently rather than low. Should be `Financial Survival` [sic] at this time, but then more BS until 0800*. The WBCQ Program Guide *still* hasn`t been updated to show all the additional Overcomer hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7504.9, Feb 4 at 0428, WRNO is on at S7-S9, but just barely modulated. It`s often something (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4070.36, Feb 4 at 0448, slow JBA CW beacon repeating ID in Morse as ZN. I was checking for GT which I heard two nights ago on 4070.5, and surprised to hear this different one instead on slightly different frequency. Both remain unlisted here or anywhere at:
https://www.hfunderground.com/wiki/High_Frequency_Beacon
So something new? Whence? Second one I`ve heard in ages on this band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4739.0, Feb 4 at 0445, the strong open AM carrier heard several days and times is gone again. What was it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4900, Feb 4 at 1350, very poor signal with music vs CODAR swishes. 4900 strikes me as a non-reported broadcast frequency from Asia or anywhere. Also a carrier on 4895, so figure it`s not AIR off-frequency. 1358 intermittent interruptions by noise bursts sounding like DRM; definite 5- or 6-pip time signal to 1400.

Uplooked later, indeed, no 4900 listings at all in Aoki or HFCC, but EiBi shows the V24 Korean Numbers Station, 1500-1510 UT only, from S Korean site g-Goyang, Gyeonggi-do / Kyonggi-do, 37N36-126E51, to Oceania (??). So could the S Korea numbers station be on at this hour playing music and timesignal, or what? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Feb 3 at 0215, Rebelde still AWOL at this hour (while 4765 Progreso is nominal, also 5040 RHC). But at next check 0716, 5025 is back on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9515.279, Feb 3 at 1535, poor signal with negligible modulation except for lite whine, presumably R. Cairo Albanian hour, from Abis NW also USward. I also detect even weaker JBA carriers about 9515.55 and 9514.95, suspected parasitic spurs from same transmitter. It is fitting that broadcasts TO Albania are as pointless as broadcasts FROM Albania (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INTERNATIONAL VACUUM [and non]. I`ve just watched a great documentary, which while not dealing directly with DXing, is extremely relevant. Should be currently playing on PBS stations. Check out your schedules. Here`s what OETA says about it:

Recommended to watch in HD, but getting up at 5 am on March 6 to do that would be rather inconvenient for me.

Aurora - Fire in the Sky
Premiered February 2017

In Earthâs polar regions, the aurora â a ghostly flicker and colorful glow â mysteriously brightens the night sky. One of the most incredible natural phenomena in the world, the array of colors of the aurora is a source of endless theory and wonder. What creates such beauty and spectacle?

And here`s link to full video:
http://www.pbs.org/video/2365941453/

The native Canadians are the Haida, so we get a good look at Walt Salmaniw`s remote DXing island! Also, about the Maori, we see Invercargill, New Zealand, home of Arthur Cushen.

The program mixes stunning photography of aurorae, scientific research with cultural material, legends about the aurora, explains how aurorae emit inaudible sounds (Glenn Hauser, OK, Feb 2, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UKRAINE [non]. 11580, UT Fri Feb 3 at 0210, RUI via WRMI, fading down but // 6855 is S9 to S9+20. About Russian aggression, too generic in a brief check to decide whether it`s a week old, but probably not at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1863 monitoring: confirmed Thursday February 2 at 2130 on WRMI 11580, good. Also confirmed UT Fri Feb 3 after 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, poor (strangely, stronger than 9265 WINB JBAC). Next:

** U S A. 9265, Feb 3 at 0034, JBA carrier presumed WINB, but usually it`s stronger than neighbor 9330 WBCQ, not tonight. Anyhow, no multi-het 660-Hz separated carriers ringing transmission (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Feb 3 at 0222+, very strange propagation from American SW signals. The WRMIs on 7 MHz are attenuated, 7570 at only S5-S7, and 7730 weaker, 7780 JBA. Yet these are much stronger, VG signals: 7520 WWCR, 7385 WHRI. Also good: 7505v WRNO. 7305 Vatican/Greenville poor; 7490 WBCQ inaudible, 7850 CHU inaudible.

9330 WBCQ inaudible. 9395 WRMI SPRN JBA, 9955 WRMI inaudible. 9475 WTWW good. 11520 WEWN good at S9+; By 0228, 12105 dead air from WTWW-3, S9-S6. By next check around 0700, conditions have normalized at least for the WRMI 7s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 770, Feb 3 at 0248 UT, plugs for ``promo code W-A-B-C`` to some 800 number, vs CCI, presumably including KKOB/KKOB. Unusual for WABC NJ to make it ~1315 miles out to here. In case you think it`s in New York, check this coverage map
http://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=WABC&service=AM&status=L&hours=N
which shows it not even reaching Scranton at night from just east of Clifton NJ; never mind skywave (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Feb 3 at 1437, Republic of Yemen Radio is back in at good S6-S9 level, after missing yesterday, triumphal music, but with some IADs, mixed with urgent exhortations about Yemen. Via SAUDI ARABIA? In case they should ever resume Qur`anic vespers, sunset in Sana`a is now 1503 UT, creeping later by 3 minutes per week.

At this time before 1500 we have a nice choice of exotic music on 25m, not only this but 11580 WRMI World Music, 11600 Kurdistan [non], 11815+ Turkey (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3272-USB, Feb 3 at 0231, MARS-like net, radiochex called for by JO7BG, call fonetikaly as if from Japan. I`ve had Army MARS here as in DXLDs 16-47 and 16-52. Googling on that call gets a wide variety of non-radio hits, including drugs, rappers, women`s turtlenecks, shipping, and several things in Vietnamese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4739.0, Feb 3 at 0213, open carrier again, S9+25 vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1721 UT February 3
