** ANGUILLA. 11775, March 25 at 1251, S9+20/30 open carrier/dead air with some hum, obviously Caribbean Beacon but no DGS to be heard. PMS is heard at 1306, managing to modulate, // 13845 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9800, March 25 at 1308, dramatic W&M dialog in English, with music, later singing, arguing; what`s this? Doesn`t seem to have religious angle, but hard to copy details. Keeps going until 1329 outro but missed title, to be continued tomorrow; and CRI ID, something about heritage.

Of course, it`s that dramatic program CRI has been running so much lately, rather than a gospel huxter. Absolutely American accents and I never heard any reference to anything Chinese. In B-17, 9800 was VOA Korean via Tinang, Philippines, but now for A-18 has ceded it at 13-14 only to CRI English, 135 degrees from Kunming. PHT still takes over 9800 at 1430 with Vatican Hindi, violating Separation of Church & State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, March 25 at 0607, RHC English is open carrier/dead air --- no, wait, it`s Just Barely Modulated, while 6165 is merely undermodulated, 6000 & 6100 sufficient. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

11760, Sunday March 25 at 1502, weekly RHC Esperanto is confirmed, tuned in too late to hear full schedule announcement, but ending with 07 hours on 6000, as already confirmed along with the other broadcast Sunday at 2230 on 15730. The 1500 emission was not on air the first date March 11, and not checked for on March 18 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7335 < // 7365, March 25 at 1236, and // 9805 at 1245, R. Martà on all three with no jamming. The incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command is still grinding away on: 7355, 7435, 5980, 11930, pulse jam on 6030. Noise on 5980 still going past 5980 vs NEW ZEALAND on new frequency, q.v.

At 1302 check, RM still VG on 7335 // 7365, jamming still on 7355 // 7435. (KNLS English is supposed to be on 7355 now at 12-13, no sign of it.) At 1405, RM now on 11930 under wall-of-noise jamming, but 13605 clear with the jamming still on ex-13820.

If anyCuban really has a hard time hearing Radio MartÃ, the first day(s) of a new season are great, as the DCJC is always behind in jamming the correct frequencies. Arnie won`t even avail themselves of what`s openly available from the boycotted HFCC.

Altho the A-18 season is underway March 25, the latest HFCC schedule is still dated March 23. Extracting all the GB entries for MartÃ:
5980 07-10
6030 00-12
7365 00-03
7365 05-07
7365 12-14
7435 03-05
9565 20-24
9805 10-13
11930 14-20
11930 20-24
13695 13-20
Note this is NOT complete! Unlisting 7335 which I was just hearing (and was not in B-17 HFCC either). How about all the other 7 MHz frequencies they had been using evenings? We may expect even more than three transmitters at once, once the ex-Sri Lankan units be installed and operational. But I think the Cubans will still have plenty of jamming capacity, if they can just get them on the correct frequencies! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 11705, March 25 at 1412, English conversation from Radio Japan, which was going to change its name, poor via PALAU, but incomparably better here than // 11935 Tashkent. Meanwhile, more English SW broadcasts have been deleted, leaving only these for A-18, which I extracted from HFCC:
0500-0530 5975 ND Austria
9710 184 Vatican [must be alternate to 9860]
9860 184 Vatican
11970 155 France
1100-1130 11695 0 Singapore [meaning north as opposed to ND?]
1400-1430 11705 270 Palau
11935 163 Uzbekistan

And per Alan Roe, March 25, WOR iog: ``R Japan (now announced as "Radio Japan of the NHK World Japan Network") heard at 0500 UT on 5975 kHz confirming A-18 frequencies in line with new published sked on
https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/resources/brochure/pdf/rj_frequency.pdf

0500-0530: 5975-Austria, 9860-Vatican, 11970-France
1100-1130: 11695-Singapore
1400-1430: 11705-Palau, 11935-Uzbekistan``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, March 25 at 0617, JBA carrier from presumed R. Kiribati (at 0618, WWV reports K index of 4, G1 storms expected). Confident that this split is not European, but I start a 9 kHz bandscan at 0619, hearing only the 531 JBA carrier before falling asleep (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 11725, March 25 at 0556, RNZP nice song in Spanish with guitar, S9+10/20, making it the SSOB by far; in fact the OSOB except for 11520 JBA carrier from WEWN. And BTW, hardly anything is propagating on lower 9 and 7 MHz bands either. Reactivated frequency, giving us a good two hours of reliable reception, now scheduled 0459-0658 daily. I was going to present the program lineup for that block, except NZ has one more week of DST UT+13, which means the domestic RNZ relay times, which are almost all of RNZP content, will be changing. Until then, RNZI is in its Week of Confusion. 0600 timesignal and ``RNZ News at 7``, top story being Aussie cricket scandal, yawn.

7425, new March 25 at 1234, RNZP music is S9-S6, not solid since in the 11-13 block only, this one is aimed only NNW, not NNE.

5980, March 25 at 1241, pointless Cuban wall-of-noise jamming is still running against no MartÃ; at 1259, RNZI comes up on its new frequency, VG but jamming audible under. 1403 recheck, RNZI still good and no jamming. 1502 recheck, RNZI faded to a JBA carrier. If it were still on 7390, it would last longer into our daytime (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU [and non?]. 9965, March 25 at 1254, big mess here, S9 signal(s) of two gospel huxters in English mixing. World Harvest Radio could be running both T8WH and WHRI? Or T8WH is getting a double-audio satellite feed from South Bend. 1259 the weaker one outros as `Christ Gospel Broadcast`, from Jeffersonville IN; while the overstation advertises World Vision (frequently done by WHR at breaks), and then T8WH ID from this one. Can`t make out whether the LeSEA understation mentions WHRI. Another possibility is that whichever transmitter(s) be involved, ID for the wrong one, i.e. everything out of South Bend so even WHRI could be radiating a T8WH ID! See my yesterday`s report of 9965 so strong it could be WHRI instead of T8WH off the side. At 1302 only one gospel huxter is audible at S9+10. At 1415, praise music, VG S9+10. I never noticed any SAH which would be the case for two separate transmitters unless precisely synchronized in frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAIPAN. 12140.034, March 25 at 1324, S7-S5 of Khmer, which is IBB at 1230-1330 due west, plus 1330-1400 Myanmarianese. This site typically significantly off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, March 25 at 1408, JBA carrier from REE on reactivated for A-18 North American frequency, from earlied opening weekends at 1400 --- not really propagating, too high vs ex-9690 which was too low (at least India has no CCI from it now). Maybe conditions will improve during the day and during the season. Deep North Americans must listen instead to reactivated 15520, which is poor with music at S3-S5, but at 1414, fair-good S9-S8 in Spanish. It`s our best bet, on the 110-degree ME azimuth, directly opposite from 17855 at 290. At 1408 I also hear a rough carrier on 15390, which was REE`s defective transmitter for B-17, but now not supposed to start until 1800 on 161 degree beam across Africa, with 21620 instead at 14-18 weekends, and which if on, would be totally useless here. Yes, recheck at 1707 finds 17855 now in well, MUF has built up, much better than 15520. Now, will it hold up until 2200*? Sunset in Toledo (near Noblejas) is 1933 UT today. And will the carrier stay on all night like it did on 9690? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15239.93 approx., Sunday March 25 at 1410, very poor off-frequency carrier from R. Munansi via WWRB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9320, March 25 at 1253, S9+10/20 of English lesson for Koreans, obviously VOA, but NOT listed here in B-17 or A-18 HFCC schedules! Surely from Philippines or NMI site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1922 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday March 25 at 0200 on WRMI 7780, fair. Almost confirmed, UT Sun Mar 25 at 0343 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO. As `This Week in Amateur Radio` is starting, presumably right after WOR from 0314 or so. Next:

Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1923?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1923?]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12065, March 25 at 1247, weak English, pauses, choir, sure sounds like WEWN with a mass, despite this frequency being deleted from A-18 schedules. Builds up to S8 at 1303 with choral music, no spurs, but certainly still WEWN. Maybe just not caught up with A-18 changes yet? I`ve been referring to FCC/HFCC listings, but it`s about time I checked WEWN itself:
http://ewtn.org/radio/freq.htm
which does have lots of blanx now, with this A-18 schedule:
``English
10-13 9470 335 SE Asia
19-24 15610 85 Africa
00-10 11520 85 Africa
Spanish (both Central/S America, no azimuths given)
15-24 12050
00-15 5970``

I`ve yet to hear any sign of them on 9470! And 12065 still running, as above. 5970 not heard before or after 1300. At 1501 check, neither 12050 nor 5970 on the air, but 15610 still with JBA carrier, so that English not yet deleted!

12073 approx., March 25 at 1708, spurblob cutting on and off out of the 12050 undermodulated Spanish transmitter; cursory tunearound does not find any other spurs; this one only +23 kHz away (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1550, March 24 at 0607 UT, scat song, so I wonder if it`s CBEF, SRC`s ``Ici PremiÃre`` in Windsor, Ont. NRC AM Log has one JAZZ format on 1550, but it`s daytimer WZUM in PA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) {date correct, overlooked for previous report}

** BRAZIL. 11780, March 24 at 2247, peppy music from RNA, VG S9+20 so on the air here today rather than trying spur-laden 6180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 351 kHz, March 24 at 0555, YKQ and dash, ND beacon from FORT RUPERT - WASKAGANISH, Quebec. I am beginning to wonder why almost all my NDB logs randomly tuned late at night are out of the northeast quadrant from here --- not from western Canada or USA, or SE USA. E-W longwire antenna should not be especially favorable for the NE. See also USA: 329 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 1610 kHz, Saturday March 24 at 0605 UT, YL in Luso Portuguese, no doubt CHHA Vozes Latinas in Toronto --- but skedgrid as I recently linked has a blank block for 04-10 UT Sat & Sun; othernights it`s allegedly `All Night Music` --- does that mean all-English? (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA. 7130-7150 & 7170-7190, March 24 at 0357, S9+10 QRDRM jamming noise INTRUDERS obviously from Ethiopia against the two Eritrean frequencies, 7140+ and 7181+ but whose carriers cannot even be detected amid. Edges trail off but note these reach 20 kHz wide rather than the DRM standard of 10 kHz sharp (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU [non?]. 9965, March 24 at 1419, gospel huxtress referencing Hebrews XI:5-6, mostly in slow English, S9+10/20 plus some hum. This is so strong it should be domestic site, but only 9965 station listed is T8WH, and Aoki shows the 1415-1430 Saturday-only segment is Music, 100 kW at 318 degrees, not even remotely USward. Since it`s World Harvest Radio, conceivably they could have put a WHRI SC transmitter on 9965 instead, maybe backup if Angel 5 over there be down (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 5975-5980-5985, March 24 at 2302, weak DRM noise still here, i.e. RRI English hour. From A-18 tomorrow, changes to 2200 on 7315 and 9760; to western Europe but about the same azimuth as to North America east. Will one be in DRM? Neither listed as such, but 5980 was supposed to be in AM too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, March 24 at 2302, REE in sign-off routine with all that satellite info, 2303 earworm IS, 2305 to dead air ---- and stays open carrier past 2341, and still past 0051 March 25, somewhat weaker. Now I am quite sure the unID OC/DA I had all night early UT March 24 on 9690 was REE failing to turn off the transmitter! Glad I caught it now, since this was the last day for 9690, resuming 17855 for North America from March 25 at 1400-2200. REE has never caught on that for an 8-hour broadcast into our daytime, they should not do it all on one frequency band. Averagely, that will mean much better reception in our mornings, worse in afternoons, probably outfading by 2200 (at least until real summer), so if they forget and also leave 17855 on all night, it will be harder to detect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 24 at 2200 and later chex, no signal yet from VOT English to North America for A-18, in the last hours of B-17 (but it`s already March 25 in Turkey). After 2300 at the winter time I look for it on old 5960 and nothing there now either, nor on 9830. Did this broadcast get totally lost in the shuffle? Maybe they had changed time but not frequency, i.e. 2200 on 5960 which I am not sure I checked that early. Maybe by 0300 March 25 they`ll be on 9515, ex-0400 on 6125 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15239.93, Saturday March 24 at 1526 I check for R. Munansi via WWRB as I am tuning UTwente for WORLD OF RADIO, and there it is, poor offset signal with hilife music. At 1721 on my own receiver I measure it at 15239.935, but here it`s always a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 335 kHz, March 24 at 0348 and again at 0553, ND beacon BV. It`s an LOM at Batesville - Almond, Arkansas, per Dxinfocentre.com --- not to be confused with 336 kHz BV in Quebec - Champlain, which presumably includes a dash [see also CANADA]

326 kHz, March 24 at 0549, ND beacon MA. Listed as Midland TX, but I was tuned to 324. Nothing closer to frequency listed.

329 kHz, March 24 at 0551, ND beacon PMV, from Plattsmouth NE. Underneath is also YHN and dash, Hornepayne, Ontario. Both relogs.

353 kHz, March 24 at 0553, ND beacon LI, from Little Rock AR, but I was tuned to 351, also audible on 352.

356 kHz, March 24 at 0555, ND beacon ODX, from Ord NE, but I am tuned to 357. CCI from another beacon on exactly same frequency and pitch makes it hard to differentiate, but could not figure out its call. Closest 356 is PTT, Pratt KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1922 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov reports from B`lgariya: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, March 24
0730-0800 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat, weak to fair
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2018/03/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_24.html
0630-0700 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat from March 31``

Not confirmed by me, Saturday March 24 from 1531 on HLR 6190v-CUSB, via UTwente SDR --- nothing but weak ChiCom signals mixing, not even a trace of the WOR theme; nor gh at some further chex; but heavy ACI from algo on 6195. From next week this will be at 1431 instead, and unconfirmed whether staying on 6190 or back up to 7265? HFCC A-18 shows the new CC QRM situation will be: 6190, NHK direct in Chinese at 290 degrees; 7265, Kashgar in Sinhala and also Baoji in Chinese. But summer conditions should attenuate the extra-European signals, while low intra-Europeans will also be subject to increasing absorption.

But Alan Gale, England as usual was hearing it: ``Hi Glenn, A fair signal from World of Radio on HLR today at 1530 UT on 6190 kHz CUSB. The Chinese station was a bit stronger today and noticeable in the background, but WoR won and was fully readable in spite of the QRM. The HLR signal was barely audible at all 1500, so things had improved greatly towards the end and WoR was audible right up to the sign off at 1600. 73 for now, Alan``

Confirmed Saturday March 24 at 2130 on WBCQ 9330.2v-CUSB, fair; and Sat Mar 24 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, poor. Next:
Sun 0200 WRMI 7780 to NE
Sun 0310v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW [ex-1130 for DST]
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 9455 to WNW
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1923?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1923?]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12056 & 12074 approx., March 24 at 1348, WEWN English on last day usage of 12065 per FCC/HFCC schedules, S9+20 on central and with squealing spurblobs about 9 kHz plus and minus, just like happens around 15610 when that signal is strong enough (not lately here). They have lessened by 1418 recheck. This is unacceptable, but nothing compared to what the 12050 Spanish transmitter has been doing, as in my March 23 report.

Now, Ron Howard forwards this: ``Thanks to Dave Valko for this March 24 update: "Caught 12050 WEWN signing on at 1457 a little bit ago. And like yesterday, is blasting out FMing spurs all over the 25mb again. The strongest is 11981, S9+15 here. They all vary a little. They're downright horrendous when they're peaking."``

I don`t check out 12050 spurs all day until: 2250 March 24, 11985, huge spurblob S9+20, sounds good in FM mode and in fact louder and clearer than fundamental 12050-AM. Many more at intervals of about 65 kHz: 12115, just as good with Radio CatÃlica Mundial ID in passing; 12180 weaker but still good in FM; 12245 unreadable; 12310 & 12375 detectable. Not so many on the minus side beyond 11985: 11920 fair in FM; 11855 other Catholic station R. Aparecida has a little noise QRM, maybe this; but bisgig from Madagascar 11790 has no problem with another WEWN-FM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, March 24 at 1419, WWCR with a gospel huxter denouncing the King James Version, apparently for not using the proper name Yahweh. What a picky, picky deity this Yahweh must be! In fact the big deal of the Yahwists is merely nomenclature (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, March 23 at 2029, Bob Biermann musing, so must be `Your Weekend Show` instead of RAE in Italian --- aha, the WRMI sked grid
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
has now deleted the RAE German at 19 & Italian at 20 on 9395, showing both it and 9455 as System G `Oldies` at 18-20, and more Oldies on 9395 only at 20-22 M-F, while 9455 switches to System D at 20-22. This `YWS` is another secret opt-out from `Oldies` never shown on the schedules. Meanwhile from 2030, 9455 seeming // JBA 7780 in Italian `Studio DX`. The program grid still shows RAE German & Italian, M-F 21-23 on 11580 only, which has really been off the air since the first week of January, and not coming back until Maybe.

RAE relays in Portuguese, Spanish, French, English are still on the sked and heard recently; Chinese and Japanese allegedly at 08-10 on 9455 I continue to sleep thru (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15120, March 23 at 0022, CRI Spanish, with warbling squeals peaking about 2.5 kHz each side; // 5990 unsquealish but undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17570, March 23 at 2005, S9-S8 YL in tonal African language, occasional hints of French influence; 2007 choral music, 2008 ID in passing as Radio Mondiale Adventiste. On almost dead band it really stands out along with 17640 African Pathways Radio, from the other MAD site. As in my previous log Feb 25, language listed as Moore spoken in Burkina Faso. But Aoki/NDXC labels it Mossi(Moore). HFCC A-18 shows this only Mos language broadcast anywhere will then move to 9770, and to site from FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 9610, March 23 at 2025, operatic solo, soon Spanish announcement mentioning ``rumano``, so obviously RRI as scheduled 20-21 via Tsiganeshti.

5980, March 24 at 0024, I happen to hear the same music, i.e. the next RRI Spanish broadcast via Galbeni. Both of these have only one more day before the skedshuffle, or maybe zero days for 5980 depending on time of day UT March 25 they enact A-18 usage. I can hardly wait to again have a shot at Radio Chaski now until 0000v* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 9545, March 23 at 2027, very poor talk at S4, gone at 2031 recheck. Could it be Solomon Islands? HFCC registers SIBC as 20-07 UT, but until 2030 Fridays only in both seasons is also BBC Hausa via Woofferton, extended from -2000 otherdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1922 monitoring: confirmed Friday March 23 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.273v-CUSB, good S9. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11786 approx., March 23 at 2011, during routine check for Anguilla 11775 or maybe Brasil 11780, neither of which is on now, I find an S1-S3 extremely distorted spurblob; switching to FM mode I can tell it`s speaking Spanish, somewhat readable. It`s not RHC, and at this hour the only significant SS on band is 12050, WEWN --- sure enough, I make a match with the S9+10 fundamental which itself sounds OK. Then to search the band for more such spurs, and there they are, all quite broad and hard to pinpoint, some readable in FM mode, further ones not.

12116 at S8-S9, 12189-12192 at S5-S6, 12250-12247, 12390 & 12450 JBA; downward: 11984 at S9+15 and good in FM; 11918 almost as good but some noise; by now it`s 2021: 11852 at S3, 11721 at S1, 11664 JBA.

At 386 kHz below 12050, 11664 implies the average separation would be 64.3 kHz, out to the sixth order. 12450 at +400 kHz would divide out to 66.7 kHz each. But not all of them fit into this pattern. They could be fluxuating as I go along, besides being so broad each in FM.

This transmitter has gone out of whack before; it may always be to some extent, but extra strong fundamental signal today exacerbates them. Clearly, WEWN has some cleaning up to do.

5970, the night Spanish frequency, is clean around 0030 March 24. I understand that two separate transmitters are used for day and night services, even tho at any one time, only one English and one Spanish are on air.

And this is soon to diminish, if HFCC FCC A-18 registrations are complete, only 5 entries. WRTH reminds us they have 4 x 500 kW transmitters. They`ve been run with 250 (or 300?) for years now, but note that Spanish allegedly uses only 100, as in both A-18 and B-17. One could easily have believed 250 today, especially with the azimuths aimed away from us, yet supplying us with all those spurs.
CIRAF
5970 00-14 11,15 Spanish 160 100
12050 14-24 11,15 Spanish 155 100

11520 00-09 46,47 English 85 250
9470 09-13 43,44 English 335 250
15610 19-24 46,47 English 85 250

English no longer 21 hours a day, let alone 24, but only 14. 9470 was also scheduled in B-17 but never used, so there is no reason to expect it to be active in A-18, but we shall soon hear if so. And March 24 should be the last day for morning English on 12065 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, March 23 at 2030, WINB gospel huxter in English, with big ripple on carrier, obvious with BFO, but sounds OK in AM; still a sign of a very sick transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6905-LSB, March 23 at 2033, Spanish 2-way, good S9 signals rather than any North American pirates. One has good modulation, the slightly weaker contact, rough. Not clear from which side of border, but they are discussing SLPotosÃ, Huasteca, Ciudad Valle, products such as mango, caÃa, aluminio; QSL? So have a ham radio background (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9475, March 23 at 2028, algo weak S3 instead of WTWW-1; trouble is, nothing else is scheduled. Could be few-watt exciter only, as neighbor 9350 WWCR inblasts at S9+45! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
