** BOLIVIA. 5935.01, Sept 27 at 2356, finally I have a JBA carrier, after no-shows 24 and 48 hours earlier from presumed Radio Yura; slightly on hi side, with traces of modulation until blasted away by WWCR steel drums from *2358:50 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11785, Sept 27 at 2338, Firedragon music jamming over something in Chinese, S7 peaks with flutter. Can`t tell whether the Chinese is ours, RFA this hour only via Tinian, or theirs, CNR1 jamming to boot.

9830, Sept 27 at 2345, weak signal, at first suspected Turkey in German as sometimes by mistake, but it`s not off-frequency and it`s in Chinese, so scratch that; instead, CNR1 at 2025-0100, 100 kW, 175 degrees from Beijing 572 site, per NDXC, and not a jammer! There are lots of other weak Chinese signals scattered around 31mb now.

9765, Sept 27 at 2347, YL in Cambodian with piano music background. NDXC/Aoki shows it`s CRI this hour only in Khmer, 100 kW, 200 degrees from Nanning 954 site.

9535, Sept 27 at 2349, music under RHC music sounds like Firedragon: this hour only, jamming is required vs RFA Chinese via Kuwait. 9535 is always one of the weakest RHC channels here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 5960, Sept 28 at 0000, time-signal ending with last pip higher about half a second late, JBA signal, maybe Chinese. Per NDXC, only here is PBS Xinjiang, at 2300-0257, 100 kW ND from Urumqi. This is the station which could QRM The Mighty KBC on UT Sundays, and used to be off-frequency low when also heard in our mornings, but don`t notice that now. Got to hurry back to PBS for The Vietnam War (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, Sept 26 at various chex, Family Radio satellator in Enid, K202BY is back on air. I last logged it in mid-May but it was gone again by Mayend. Clearly a low priority, not unusual to be gone for months at a time, and glad it is, as otherwise 88.3 is my best lowband frequency for DX and for RF feeders in the car and house. Fortunately it`s weak enough for the feeders to overcome it in most circumstances (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Sept 27 at 2329 I`m tuned in earlier to catch R. Chaski cutoff since I missed it last night due to periodic reset of autotimer. Yes, JBA carrier now until 2330:06.5* approx.; unfortunately I glanced away from my watch when it vanished, so subtracted a couple of seconds. This is now the reference point for future slippage circa 6.7 seconds later per noctem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9395, Sept 27 at 2351, preview of Pope Francis` visit to Philadelphia coming up Sept 22-27, 2015, including Saturday Sept 26 and Sunday 27, for the World Meeting of Families; quite positive coverage, so wonder what this be: Overcomer, as soon confirmed by numerous //s on WRMI and other stations not synchronized such as 9370 WWRB. I thought BS is anti-Catholic? Maybe he is just playing this so as to denounce it following (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re 14336-USB, ``Frontier Red Willow``, Art Jackson, KA5DWI/7 in AZ replies in ABDX: ``That frequency is active for County Hunters. It has been for many many years. There are other frequencies used, but that is a common calling frequency by those out in rarer counties. The phonetics was a ham call, but he must have failed to give his prefix. It is a common practice to ask for relays when one side is weak. I use to do that when travelling through west, south and central Texas counties back in my younger days. I should do it now that I am retired. 73`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday September 27 at 1045 amid the 1030 broadcast on WRMI, 5850, S9+20, but JBA carrier only on presumed // 9455, weaker than some Asian on 9460 (however, circa 0610, I was surprised to find WRMIs 9395 & 9455 unusually still holding up with VG signals). 1897 also confirmed Wed Sept 27 at 1315 on WRMI, 9955, S9+10 but with pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! It worsened some by 1320.

WOR also confirmed at surprise new secret time, Wed Sept 27 at 2039 on WRMI, 9955! So we get the Wed 2030 slot in the expanded WRMI programming hour instead of BS; fair, but pulse jamming continues, and ramps up by 2100; tnx a lot, Arnie.

NOT confirmed Wed Sept 27 at 2100 on WBCQ, 7490: fair signal but dead air from first check 2041 past 2100 and 2129, yet the dulcet tones of Goddess Irina have resumed by 2146. WOR barely confirmed Wed Sept 27 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.95v-CUSB, S6 including noise level, much weaker than usual here. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Wed Sept 27 at 2131, VOA news relay during Oldies portion on WRMI, ends at 2133.5 for BB ID. AFAIK, these appear at random times, but worth checking whether circa 2130 UT be reliable. Meanwhile, 9455 has started `Frecuencia al DÃa`, adding on this hour only to original 15770 but which is still off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 700, Sept 27 at 2045 UT, groundwave to quiet spot in western Enid on caradio, end of `Despacito` song, prompt ID for KHSE 700, Wylie etc., and K281CS 104.1 attributed to 8 cities (but there are a lot more suburbs than that in The Metroplex), and still saying ``This station is for rent. Please contact John Harmon, 972-904-4904``, then rap song in English. I bet they play some S Asian tunes too. Day power is one sesquikW and day pattern has a lobe toward OKC, me too; but a notch due north:
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/patg?id=KHSE-AM&h=D
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM. 9839.8, Sept 27 at 2342, VOV in English, VP S7, as always off-frequency; maybe // 12019.1, but that signal just too weak to tell. There is nothing in NDXC to indicate these are not right on 9840 or 12020. EiBi rounds to 12019 and 9840 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search Sept 27 at 1227: nothing but 828, seems NW, and maybe two signals beating. LSR was 1224 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** BOLIVIA. 5935/5936, Sept 26 at 2315, again no trace of a signal from R. Yura, tho several off-frequency 49m ZY carriers are detectable, including the one below 5940, as well as Pio Doce on 5952.4+. I shall be interested whether the South Americans were still hearing it yesterday and today. (Some editors will hasten to throw out these non-logs, so far, despite my attempt to be helpful for others in publicizing this) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 12085, Sept 26 at 2315, poor signal with heavy flutter, uncertain language, a Russian word here and there? but EiBi shows this hour only is CRI in Mongolian via Xi`an site. That could be confusing, as 12085 used to be a VOM frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 26 at 0614 check of RHC English: this frequency`s music is suptorted, but all the others are better: 6060 OK; 6100 very good at S9+20, 6145 S9+20/30 with best mod of all for quite a change; tomorrow, who knows? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Sept 26 at 2320, 25m is full of hi-power RHC signals, diffusing three different programs, so I go looking for all the leapfrog mixing products as I previously uncovered --- but none are heard now! Have they filtered them out? Would not give RadioCuba that much credit; there must be some other explanation. Instead I read the S-meter on the fundamentals:
11950: S9+35 with Mesa Redonda
11880: S8, English, unusually weak, really
11840: S9+30, mainstream Spanish, with some hum like on all of them:
11830 & 11850, very weak parasites as always from 11840
11760: S9+25, ms Spanish
11670: S9+20, ms Spanish
11580 â WRMI with no QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 15449.884, Sept 26 at 1425, weak talk sounds like SW Asian language, some hum past 1430 brief music break, song with heavy beat. Way off frequency; to compensate for Turkey on plus side earlier? HFCC shows at 1400-1600 it`s IBB = Radio Liberty in Tajik, 100 kW, 105 degrees via Biblis. Is it unusual for this site to be so out of whack? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUINEA. 9650, Sept 26 at 0606, Qur`an at S9, reminding me that RTG has not been coming in this well lately; seemingly ecumenical, also reported elsewhen with Christian programming, but no promos heard for Ron Reagan`s Freedom From Religion Foundation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII. 6501-USB, Sept 26 at 0609, robotic masculine marine weather info, consisting of geo coordinates and millibar readings above 1000, conveying verbally a barometric map? But quite distorted modulation, which any SSB ham would be ashamed of, but not the USCG. Could not make out any locations mentioned, but EiBi`s schedule for 6501 shows NMO Honolulu at 0600-0635, time-shared with Chesapeake, Guam and Kodiak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 532.5 & 650.8, Sept 26 at 2335 UT, steady unmodulated carriers. On a hunch, I calculate the difference, 118.3 kHz, and check for some others at the same separation: there they are! On 769.1 and 887.4, at least. I don`t have any other radio encended but this NRD-545, so suspect these are internally generated, altho unnoticed before: Yes: starting with 118.3 kHz itself on the LW band; but wait: try switching from the Wellbrook to the notverylongwire, and they go away, so it`s really the ALA-330S producing them; but, why? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Sept 26 at 2314, JBA carrier from R. Chaski is already audible, but recheck at 2332 is already too late, as they must have reset the timer earlier. Next chance must start monitoring no later than 2330.0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 contents: Alaska, Anguilla, Armenia, Australia, Bolivia, Bougainville, Brazil, Chile, Cuba non, Czechia, Dominica, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Korea South & North, Marshall Islands, MÃxico, Mongolia, North America, Papua New Guinea, Puerto Rico, Sa`udi Arabia, Spain, Syria, Turkey, UK non, USA, Zambia, Zanzibar, unID 1650, and the propagation outlook

WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed first SW broadcast less than one semihour after completed, Tuesday September 26 at 2130 on WRMI 9455, S9 to S9+10 (and // 15770 remains the only still missing WRMI frequency). Also confirmed Tue Sept 26 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.98v-CUSB, S8-S9. Next:

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Sept 25 at 1806, CB is still off again. 6090 also still off Sept 25 at 2352 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA. 5935, Sept 25 at 2353, absolutely no carrier from R. Yura, on its reactivated new frequency, as reported by Claudio Galaz, Chile, as unID 0000-0213 Sept 21, when he was checking a tip from an Argentine YouTuber a couple weeks earlier. Rafael RodrÃguez, Colombia, got a full ID Sept 21 at 0213*. Arnaldo Slaen, Argentina, also had it around 1100 Sept 23.

They say it announced ``5936`` --- no carrier there either. In case it really be on 5936, we can at least listen for a het upon DGS & PMS, and hope for degraded propagaton from Nashville. Chances are it is not right smack dab on 5935.000.

No one has reported a precise frequency, but until 2015 it was off-frequency below 4717 which was off-frequency above nominal 4715 as in WRTH 2015.

The last report of it in the DSWCI DBS was:
4716.7 BOL R Yatun Ayllu Yura, San Antonio APR15

My own last log of it was: ``4716.7, Sept 12 [2014] at 0034, some music audible here from R. Yura, still at 0114 when I measure the yurnique frequency approx.``

Until 0000 UT should be our best chance to hear it, as WWCR occupies 5935 from just before 0000 until almost 1200, which should be too late for Bolivia. Propagation is not the best this evening, but I can still detect other Bolivians on 5952.4+, 6134.8, as well as Colombia on 5910.3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-AM, Sept 25 at 2355, music at S9+5; no pirates above 6.9 but no time to keep with it, just before `Vietnam War` episode 6 on PBS. It was unID for all these reporters too:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,37599.0.html
but the 2355 music was IDed as by RATM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15390, Sept 25 at 1807, REE very poor with wobbly carrier, but no signal at all on the three higher frequencies, 15520, 17715, 17855. Manuel MÃndez, Spain agrees that all were totally silent except 15390 very distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1896 monitoring: confirmed Monday September 25 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.95v-CUSB, very poor. Next WOR 1897 should be ready for first airing Tuesday September 26 at 2130 on WRMI 9455; 2330 on WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Monday Sept 25 at 2010, R. Prague in English again via WRMI, must be 7-daily at this secret time. R. Prague doesn`t know about it either, as their sked was outdated even before this started:
http://radio.cz/en/static/about-radio-prague/how-to-listen-to-radio-prague

What`s next? At 2040 check, a gospel huxter in English rather than a 2030 DX program repeat, also seems to be cut off incomplete at 2059.5 for BZ ID as jamming ramps up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA [and non]. 11775, Sept 24 at 2014, PMS is back, first time heard since Hurricane Irma. S7 with good modulation. But night frequency 6090 still missing Sept 25 at 0222 check; 0255, now on with open carrier. 11775 gone again at 1407 Sept 25, audiblizing VP carrier no doubt AIR GOA scheduled 1200-1430 in Tibetan, Nepali (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sept 24 at 2100, REE is gone again, inaudible not only here but no 17715, 15520; however, a very poor distorted signal on 15390, only one on air? Hardly any sigs on 19m now, except big OC on 15730 before Greenville turns off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Sept 24 at 2014, WRMI with song not // BS frequencies, presumably still R. Prague English relay during their Sunday music show. As of Sept 25, the WRMI 9955 skedgrid at
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMI9955
still claims it`s nothing but Overcomer Ministry 7-daily at +2000-2100, but for the past several days we`ve been hearing a strip of other programming. At 2055 it`s Roberto Scaglione in Italian, so Sunday at 2030 would be `Studio DX`. At 2030 there could be more DX program repeats, only to be revealed by monitoring each day.

11580, Sunday September 24 at 2015, Jeff White is intentionally recording and reporting from Qatar about media, where Al Jazeera is a local TV station, // stronger 9455; this is a `Viva Miami` slot, no doubt with many more chances to hear it. At 2055, beeps from Kim`s `Shortwave Radiogram` as scheduled from 2030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 14336-USB, Sept 24 at 2106, nothing on HWN 14325 frequency but I find a ham here, repeatedly IDing as ``Frontier Red Willow``, asking for relays, but don`t catch real callsign; some strange net? Search correlates those names to:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Willow_Dam
``Red Willow Dam (National ID # NE01076) is a dam in Frontier County, Nebraska, about ten miles northwest of McCook``. I suppose this is a county-working contest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1896 monitoring: confirmed Sunday September 24 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.8v-USB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday Sept 25 after 0300 on Area 51 webcast (and 5130.3v-AM WBCQ was also confirmed on a few minutes earlier); also confirmed UT Mon Sept 25 after 0330 on WRMI webcast (and also 9955 in well checked half a sesquihour earlier). Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 15430, Sept 25 at 1359, DW is cutting on and off, during a site/beam change? No, it`s supposed to be merely a language change from Dari to Pashto, 250 kW, 335 degrees from Trincomalee, SRI LANKA. One of the best signals on band, but far less than Cublaster 15370. Anyhow, during DW breaks until it stay on at 1401 with Merkel victory news rating S9+10/20, I am also hearing INTRUDERS, 2-way in Spanish on 15430-USB, who seem unconcerned about the TRM QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9664.77, Sept 24 at 0030, R. Voz MissionÃria, Camborià SC, has been knocked down below 9665 after a while almost attaining 9666, music and Brazuguese talk at S5, as measured on the JRC. Recheck at 0523 on the Icom, now I get 9664.790 during music, sermon, S2-S3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 1180, Sept 24 at 0045, vs sports station, Omaha? and KFAQ IBOC, music here is // 5025 Rebelde, but still can`t detect any talk in the mix // 7365 Radio MartÃ.

I am reliably informed that the R. Martà facility at Vaca Key survived
the recent atmospheric events with only minor damage, although not on
air as yet, but reportedly will be shortly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 24 at 0042, R. Progreso is back on at S9, but a great deal weaker than 5025, R. Rebelde at S9+35. NDXC says 4765 is 50 kW ND from Bejucal, while 5025 is 100 kW ND from Bauta (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CZECHIA [non]. 9955, Sat Sept 23 at 2000, poor signal as this WRMI goes from BS & ID to R. Prague in English, once again for at least the second day in a row at this secret time still shown on skedgrid as BS until 2100 (previous reports were filed under USA: WRMI). So RP at 20 could be 6 or even 7 days a week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 3925, Sunday September 24 at 1229, Radio Nikkei 1 is S9 in Japanese, back on air after some absence, and still better here than // 6055 or 9595; 1233 overlapping conversations, language lesson? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 770, Sept 24 at 1222, Suprema Corte de Justicia mandatory federal PSA, earthquake relief PSA, ``Grupo ChÃvez Radio``, loops SW and 1225 rock music, so that makes it XEREV Los Mochis, Sinaloa. Best XE signal holding up this late, our sunrise just now at 1221 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Sept 24 at 0018, Mighty KBC via GERMANY is S9+10/20, best yet on the third week of this new frequency; 0100 into `Giant Jukebox` half with Uncle Eric (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15390, Sept 23 at 2003, REE still on all four frequencies, this one weaker than // 15520 than // 17715 than // 17855, but 15390 is strong enough now to tell, as wb has been complaining, that the modulation is distorted and the carrier also wobbling, during a silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1896 monitoring: confirmed Saturday September 23 at 2230 on WBCQ 9330.00v-CUSB, fair-good. Also confirmed Sat Sept 23 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, very good. Not confirmed UT Sun Sept 24 at 0200 on WRMI 11580, since it`s a JBA carrier, but later discovered the R75 preamp 2 was not engaged (as I usually turn it off for MW tuning); 0229 recheck just too late to hear WOR end, but poorly audible. Also confirmed UT Sunday Sept 24 at 0330 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, fair at Somaliland item 19 minutes in, so started circa 0311.

Ivo Ivanov reports: GERMANY, World of Radio #1896 via Hamburger Lokalradio 9485-CUSB, Sept 24

** U S A. 3250, UT Sun Sept 24 at 0020 check, no signal from this WBCQ; seems it is running, sometimes, only on UT Sats during `Allan Weiner Worldwide` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Sept 24 at 1320, logs from some donwunderite, during secret Sunday 1300 airing of `Wavescan` on WRMI, not only here but also // on JBA 7780, all of which weekdays emit `The Power Hour` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5072.1 & 5097.9, UT Sun Sept 24 at 0135, WTWW-2 as always parasitic spurs much weaker but unmistakable, from 5085 fundamental, with `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` still running late, after still no 9930 transmission at 1800 or anytime in afternoon. 5085 still running at 0517 with C&W music (but most nights, not) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1310, Sept 24 at 0049 UT, Hilltopper Sports Network, ad for TNN(?) Mobile; interview with guy from US Bank supporting this game and United Way, before kickoff, mentions Mandalay (?) Bay, then clinched by ``southern Kentucky``, ``Hilltoppers`` team, ``Bowling Green area `` mentions; so it must be WTTL Madisonville, which is west of B.G., rather than the other KY in the far east. WTTL: 1500/40 watts U1 even tho it`s after sunset, breaking format from ``Classic Hits 103.5`` translator. The Hilltoppers are at WKU in Bowling Green (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540, Sept 24 at 0054 UT, UNI Panthers volleyball, pizza ad, other local ads, ``on the Panthers Sports Network``, dominating frequency is KXEL Waterloo IA as if it`s on 50 kW ND day pattern rather than night with a null to the south. Official September sunset was 0015 UT (October: 2330). Volleyball?! Imagine that; must not have been any football game they could diffuse this Saturday night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Sept 23 at 1956, again no carrier detectable from ZBC; nor RTM Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 24 at 1206-1215: 774 from NW, 702 from WSW = two making a beat, 594 from WSW, 756 from WSW, 828 both WSW and NW i.e. can`t get a null, 1098 west, 1512 WSW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Sept 24 at 0046 UT something in Spanish here with romantic music, rough DF ENE/WSW, avoiding KWKH game. Two Mexicans at that angle are XEHN Nogales, IRCA-listed as talk, and XEMOS Los Mochis, Ãxtasis Digital. Those fit better than any SS 1130 in NRC AM Log, in CA, GA, TN, TX. However, our sunset was only 0026 UT, so probably too early for the NW Mexicans. How about WYXE Gallatin (Nashville) TN, 2.3 kW daytimer, religious? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6925-LSB, Sept 24 at 0037, 2-way in language, expecting Spanish but don`t recognize words, maybe Greek. I log this in the absence of any North American pirates on the band.

6925 is worth checking for S Americans: Claudio Galaz, Chile, reported RCW (Radio CompaÃÃa Worldwide) on 6925, Sept 19 at 2301-2340 about the Mexican quake; also heard earlier in his afternoon testing on 7565, and unID music pirate on 6970. He does not specify if any of these were not in AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11802.0-USB, Sept 24 at 0035, S2 INTRUDERS, 2-way in colloquial Spanish, laughter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
