Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 7995-USB, Dec 23 at 2303-2311, nothing heard from net of bases including McMurdo which were allegedly going to sing carols to each other from this time, per Ed Kusalik; source? Unknown for how long. Could be an interesting frequency to keep monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15164, 15233, 15301, 15439, 15508, 15577, Dec 23 at 1454, extremely distorted spurblobs out of S9+30 RHC 15370 where it sounds OK. Also weaker ones audible at the extremes, 15646, 15095, at ~69 kHz intervals. The 15233 one I hear first is QRMing another RHC fundamental, 15230! Something`s always wrong at RHC. But these occur some days, lack other days (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [non]. 11600, Sat Dec 23 at 1539, since I have UTwente running for WOR chex, try this for the new OMN, Oromiya Media Network, via Bulgaria, but nothing heard. Ivo Ivanov says it`s probably M-F only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 3325, Dec 23 at 1412, JBA carrier indicating RRI Palangkaraya, as NBC Bougainville is usually off by this time, a semihour after sunrise here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Dec 23 at 1415, Korean talk and bits of music, S9 to S9+20, Echo of Hope on the frequency it uses to publicize other broadcasts to North Korea. Never heard it so strong; way above fading 5025 Cuba, and SSOB except for WWV, and about equivalent to 4450 Voice of the People, hit by jamming and CODAR, but no jamming on 4885 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Sat Dec 23 at 1922, WRMI is on, not with R. Biafra, but with familiar steel drum piece in World Music fill, distorted modulation unusual for WRMI, at S9+20. By 1927 playing the canned IS & ID loop, saying programming resumes at the ``top of the hour`` --- oops, not in this case.

1930 opens Radio Herwa International in its new evening broadcast, VG in Hausa, and the other language; maybe some headlines separated by stingers, but mostly music alternating with schedule and contact info, judging from all the ``kHz`` and numbers mentioned, such as at 1952 when again the modulation is distorted, so is it an input or output problem? 11530 off at 2000* sharp after partial BZ ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120, Dec 23 at 1948, JBA steady carrier among the CW & SSB QRhaM, presumed INTRUDER, R. Hargeisa which is now reported on air until 2000* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 17800, Dec 23 at 1938, VG S9+10 signal here in some African language, the SSOB and the OSOB! on 16m, a band otherwise seemingly dead. Retune at 2000, sounds like a few words of French before cut off at 2001*. NDXC/Aoki shows it`s AWR in Fulfulde, at 1930-2000, 250 kW, 315 degrees from Meyerton, and overkill right on to Oklahoma`s Fulfulde speakers or DXers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 12160 // 9980, Dec 23 at 1934, WWCR still with Overcomer as scheduled Saturdays for both, but someone other than BS speaking; and followed 6 seconds later by 9370 WWRB, all VG.

15710, WHRI continues absent in daytime when had been BSing; 6040 however is back on Dec 23 at 2307 with YL gospel huxter, not TOM, usual het from Brasil.

9370 & 3185, Dec 23 at 2308, neither WWRBS frequency is on but presumably during a delayed switchover, as both have continued active earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. UNIDENTIFIED, 6221-USB, Dec 23 at 1422, coastal station KJM calling M/V Todd(?) â something; they agree to try 8104-USB instead. KJM is stronger there for me, but still no contact between them, nor anything heard back on 6221. No luck here searching for info about KJM. Not even any hits searching UDXF group.io. Maybe it was KJN? Call not given fonetikaly. Where is it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1909 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria reports: GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR 6190 CUSB, Dec 23, 0730-0759 on 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu Sat, fair
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2017/12/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr_23.html
His recordings indicate a subaudible heterodyne from something. The next broadcast has been moved from 7265 to 6190-CUSB as well, as Michael Kittner of HLR told us:

``Aktueller Sendeplan (22.12.2017)
Jeden Samstag:
08.00 - 11.00 Uhr CET 6190 kHz (1000 W) (3 h)
11.00 - 13.00 Uhr CET 7265 kHZ ( 250 W) (2 h)
13.00 - 17.00 Uhr CET 6190 kHz (1000 W) (4 h)
Jeden Sonntag:
11.00 - 14.00 Uhr CET 9485 kHz (1000 W) (3 h)``
However, there will be some holiday special pre-emptions.

Sat Dec 23 I spot-check 6190 via UTwente during the entire 15-16 UT hour, the first half being `Media Network Plus`, but no trace of HLR, just two stations mixing, seemingly the ChiComs in Mongolian and Vietnamese, altho I also thought I heard some Korean. Also rechecking 7265 in case HLR were still there: nothing but CRI to Sri Lanka.

However, Alan Gale in England reports: ``Hi Glenn, I'm pleased to say that HLR's switch from 7265 to 6190 seems to have worked, as World of Radio was coming in well here at 1530 UT today. It wasn't thundering in, but it was definitely stronger than it was on 7265 when I last heard it there, and it was fully readable all the way through the programme I'm pleased to say. [His recording atop slight QRM]

I was recording KBC on my other receiver when your programme was on, but I found the attached short clip from when I briefly switched over.
I just made a screen shot of the path between here and GÃhren, and it is almost directly east from here about 644 miles away. Twente is almost right in between us, so it looks like the signal is going right over it and they are in the 'dead zone' at that time. Looks like I'm just in the right place for them at that time of day! :-) Alan``

WOR 1909 confirmed, barely, Sat Dec 23 after 2230 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB. At first a JBA carrier, while neighbors 9265, 9350, 9370 and 9395 are all good to very good. Then I start to hear a trace of me, and by 2255 definitely, but still too weak to copy. Fortunately, I already know exactly what I said. (Also have a high local noise level around S8, Xmas dex?)

Also confirmed Sat Dec 23 after 2300 on WRMI 11580, S9 but deep fades to S3; by 2309 at peaks S9+25 it`s the strongest of all WRMI frequencies, and VG modulation level emphasizing my glitches. Next:
Sun 0200 WRMI 11580 to NE
Sun 0410v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW [probably preÃmpted this week & next]
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1910?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1910?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, and podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Sat Dec 23 at 1452, WRMI with Oldies; 11580 is off instead of RAE Spanish; 9955 with the Japo-Mississippian gospel huxtress.

11580 // 9455, Sat Dec 23 at 2000, YL introducing Jesus music on WRMI.

9395 & 9455, Dec 23 at 2308, WRMI Oldies with floating delayed VOA News relay; announcer has similar voice to Jeff. See also NIGERIA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.08, Dec 23 at 2256, WBCQ not on early this Saturday; but S9-S6 at 2258 playing rock music rather than IS & ID loop, past ToH, no ID until 2301.4, then ``Valkyries`` theme of `SW Saturday Night`. 5130 not on yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Dec 23 at 1453, WTWW Xmasmx is already S9+20, still distorted and carrier wobbling slightly.

9942.9, Dec 23 at 1941, S6-S7 carrier matched by another on 9917.1, the plus/minus 12.9 parasites of S9+40 WTWW-2 which I know I will find as I tune down to 9930. No modulation on the spurs, just Xmasmx on 9930, which is also splattering out across them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7200-LSB, Dec 23 at 1946 hamwars are still going on here, music jamming, tone/carrier jamming, threats to ``break your *u*k*n* neck``, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 0107 UT December 24

** CUBA. 15140, Dec 22 at 1909, RHC in Arabic, distorted, squealing, and splattering out to 15120/15160. Squeal problem much like that of WEWN. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 15115-15120-15125, Dec 22 at 1908, DRM noise at S8, as VON has been active here lately. Topside confronts splat from 15140 Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Dec 22 at 1940, WRMI is back on with African music, 1943 ID in Hausa(?) for Radio Herwa International, and schedule announcement. Rest of hour seems to be hilife music alternating with such info rather than any substantial programming. So RHI at last has an evening broadcast, after starting some weeks ago at 0700-0730 only on same WRMI frequency.

Radio Biafra shows up sporadically on 11530 at 1900, but not today, nothing there at 1900-1902. Since Biafra contracted from an hour to a semihour if it`s on at all, filling the rest of the hour with RHI certainly makes sense, but it could be one or the other, both or neither from one day to the next, either at 05-06 or 19-20. Today 11530 goes off at 2000 unlike yesterday when it carried other WRMI programming instead of 11580. More, See USA WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [and non]. 9980, Dec 22 at 1913, WWCR is still carrying the Overcomer, and so is 9370, WWRB, 4.5 seconds later.

11600, Dec 22 at 1918, poor S8-S6 BS, this one via BULGARIA. Aoki shows 1805-2000, 100 kW, 306 degrees back USward. (BTW 11600 Bulgaria is also carrying a new US-based clandestine for Ethiopia at 15-16, OMN, Oromiya Media Network, as reported by Ron Howard.)

15710, Dec 22 at 1914, no signal from WHRI which had been a big blasting block of BS, per Aoki from 18 to 22.

6040, Dec 22 at 2317 check, this WHRIBS is also off. Probably they have pulled all Overcomer broadcasts. This one only started a few weeks ago, at 22-24 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WBCQ

** SPAIN. 15390, Dec 22 at 1906, REE about Catalunya, S9+10 and distorted, but almost tolerable, in AM mode, not SSB; stronger than S9-S6 // but clear 15500. Program ID at 1942 as `Thinko Continentes`, but what about the other two? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15740, Dec 22 at 1916, big S9+20/10 open carrier, obviously VOA Greenville warming up for French broadcast on 15730 from 1930, by when 15740 has gone off. That`s to avoid overlapping the previous hour of VOA French already on 15730 via Vatican, violating Separation of Church and State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** U S A. Tracking WRMI frequencies Friday December 22 after 1900:

11530, 11580 and 9955 are off at 1902. 11825, 7780 always off.
9395, 9455 and 21525 are on at 1902, the latter JBA as usual

11530, at 1940 recheck is now ON with African music: it`s Radio Herwa International. See NIGERIA [non]

11530 is off again at 2000 unlike yesterday, and 11580 is still off.
9455 at 2000 with gospel huxter, as per schedule, `Walking in Power` from a Miami church; 9395 continues with Oldies this hour

11580 at 2042 recheck is now on with `Wavescan`, routine loggings from some downunderite. Must have come on at *2030, and // 9455. Former third frequency at this time 7780 remains totally off.

9455 at 2100 now airs `Walking in Power` again from an hour earlier, this time substituting for 15770. 11580 with RAE in German. 11530 still off. 9395 with `The Power Hour` but no // 7780 or anything.

9455 at 2130 with `Studio DX` in Italian, also as if on 15770.

11580 at 2212 music in Spanish, but presumably RAE in Italian service.
During this hour 9395 is joined by 9455 for `The Power Hour`.

11580 at 2305 with `Viva Miami` mailbag as sked M/W/F. 9395 // 9455 sound like Biermann with `Your Weekend Show`, but not on sked, just Oldies. 9955 with `Noches con Mirka` Xmas special, not jammed?? It would have started at 2200 for a sesquihour until 2330, pushing back start of PCJ`s `Happy Station` Xmas show until 2330 (scheduled as `Media Network Plus` --- NOT, normally at 23-24 Fridays). 5850 after 2300 with Radio Tirana. 5950 weak Spanish, presumed AWR altho HQ does not acknowledge this service exists.

UT Sat Dec 23: 7730 is back on at 0017 with normal non-BS programming; and 5850 continues, both off again after 0200.

MUF is plunging, and by 0018, 9395 & 9455 & 9955 & 11580 are JBA carriers. 11530 also supposed to be on now. From 0030, 7730 still VG with `Wavescan`; 5850 VG with Slovakia.

9395 at 0219, JBA carrier, so can`t confirm if it`s still RAE in English, but probably. 5850, 7570, 7730, 7780 all off now, and 11580 inaudible but maybe on another hour like last night.

Jeff, the stuff on 11580 and/or on the 9 MHz channels after 2300 or 0000 should be put on available 7570 which will still propagate in the evenings! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.76, Dec 23 at 0056, WBCQ is on and fair with The Planet IS & ID loop. Sked still shows `The Smart Money Guy` on 5130 at 0045-0100 UT Saturdays, but it must be gone. I might have been able to follow `Allan Weiner Worldwide` here after 0100, unlike 7490 which was already a JBA carrier by 0038, but instead I listen on webcast as he is sure to talk about the arrest of Brother Scare.

More than the first half is a monolog about that, except for occasional supportive comments from Angela. Says he has been a friend of BS for 25 years. Tells a somewhat different story about what happened Monday morning Dec 18, than we have seen from the local press. At 7 am, more than a hundred police, with armored vehicles and helicopters descended on the compound, pointing guns at them, terrifying 50-60 friendly and peaceful mostly elderly residents, some of whom are using walkers or wheelchairs.

All just to arrest one 84-year-old-man. Says BS had offered to turn himself in, earlier, to avoid such disruption, but no, they had to use Gestapo tactix. They took away everyone`s computers, laptops, cellphones, and ministry financial records. They want to get it off the air. Says the timing of this raid was because they knew courts and magistrates would be on holiday for two weeks, so no bail hearings possible, causing him to remain in jail.

Likens this to the Salem witch trials, not only BS but others accused of sex crimes being convicted by public opinion rather than a trial by jury of peers. But he is well-represented by attorneys and hopes for the best. Allan is withholding judgment whether his old friend is guilty of any of the eight charges, but concedes if convicted should pay the penalty.

As a result, Allan says that TOM has canceled all radio broadcasts. The ones on WBCQ 7490 will end Dec 31, except per a promise Allan made to him long ago, will keep him on the air gratis, M-F at 23-24, replaying old broadcasts. The 3-4 hours later in the evening will then be for sale to other programmers.

Rest of hour discusses the WBCQ transmitter fire of Dec 10. $ 2-3 K has been raised so far, applied to paying three people to clean up the transmitter building, which is just about complete. There were three 50 kW transmitters in that building: #1 for 7490 which burned; #2 for 5130; and #3 the backup which is now on 7490. Says it costs more to operate than #1, but has better modulation (I thought it sounds somewhat lower). #3 used to be on 9330, but had already moved 9330 to #4 in another building. The replacement transmitter he wants weighs 20,000 pounds, which means cost of shipping it alone is a major expense (from California as before?). Has not raised airtime rates since WBCQ started (not even for inflation?), but has had to cancel all discounts.

Throughout his hours, AW frequently refers piously to `Our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ`, etc. Yet some commenters think he is still Jewish. After only a bit of e-mail, benedixion, finishes at 0207 dead air, 0208 rock music, 0209 jingle IDs about 6 in a row, more DA; 0210 joins BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775-, by 1904 Dec 22, KVOH signal has built up to S9, but just barely modulated. Can`t they tell this at the station? Why not just turn it off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Dec 22 at 1910, Xmasmx from WTWW, ID, and repeated 27 seconds later on 9930; why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** ARGENTINA [non]. Some of the RAE relays via WRMI are gone, coinciding with dumping Brother Scare, altho it is not clear why this should coincide! Were they somehow a bonus from TOM money?

7730 and 5850 are no longer on air in evenings with BS, and by 0614 UT Dec 21 had not come back on as I anticipated. Reawake at 0945, I find them still off, so assume all these are gone, weekdays: 06-07 Japanese & 07-08 English on 7730; 07-08 English & 08-09 Chinese & 09-10 Japanese on 5850.

9955 // 9455 at 1257 Dec 22 with music fill, presumably indicating the 12-13 RAE Portuguese is still running.

11580 still carries French at 1300-1330 and 1330-1400, but off at 1400* Dec 22, instead of Spanish at 14-15.

The others, all of which need to be reconfirmed, and considering that some have been appearing on Saturdays, some not: 21-22 German 11580, 22-23 Italian 11580, 22-23 Spanish 5950, 02-03 English 9395. See also USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 5055 & 5045, Dec 22 at 1302, JJBA carriers, now that there are two low-power Aussies active, 5055 being 4KZ from northern Queensland, as Ron Howard has been reporting, along with Ozyradio from NSW on 5045. And like Ron, I find 5055 QRMed by much stronger 2-way in Spanish, at 1325. DU conditions are subnormal today with 7390 NZ only fair S7-S9 and fluttery (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 6045, Dec 22 at 1313, CNR1 echo jamming like not echoing on 6125 and other 49m channels, here mixing with something else, i.e. VOA Chinese via Thailand at 12-14, but 6045 is also the current frequency of Voice of Freedom, clandestine from South to North Korea since Dec 6 at 09-15, so there could be double jamming. When will VOF wise up? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. RHC English check at 0605 Dec 22, in increasing order of reception quality, among the Cuban Five:
6165, VP S5-S8, JBM
6000, S9+20, suptorted
6100, S9/S9+10, very undermodulated
5040, S9+10/20, undermodulated
6060, S9+10, full modulation, but het from Brasil. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11830 & 11850, Dec 22 at 1417, RHC parasites of 11840 are suffering from 11840 splatter out to approx. 11822/11858. 11840 is S9+30. Usually its parasitical spurs are in the clear, but now QRMed by their own fundamental! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13340, Dec 22 at 1423, RHC Spanish JBA mixing with something: i.e. strong local 1390 KCRC, adding to 11950 bigsig from RHC; only with Preamp 2 on the R75, so probably receiver-produced; RHC not to blame in this case (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 17430, Dec 22 at 1501, RHC JBA // 17580, as 17730 is still on air, leaping over 17580 to land 150 kHz further down. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 11629.775, Dec 22 at 1414, very poor with flutter, sounds like Qur`an. Ivo Ivanov has IDed this as R. Kuwait, clashing after 1430 with RCC RVA via Vatican on 11630.0. A battle of faiths (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Dec 22 at 0602 check, no signal from VON, which is normally VG here aimed USward across W Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140, Dec 22 at 1428, music poor with flutter, so Radio Sultanate of Oman is still on air contrary to what someone heard them announce, but unknown if English or Arabic now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SIKKIM. 4835, Dec 22 at 1325, JBA carrier, presumed Gangtok. Was checking for 4836.0, where Ron Howard presumed to hear its carrier yesterday (a low-power private broadcaster in Australia also has his eye on using 4835) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7637-USB, Dec 22 at 1405, CAP, ``Triblade 55 Net One``, with NCS much stronger than stations contacted, but many colorful calls heard followed by numbers: Capstone, Red Dragon, Mudbug, Shiprock, Oilwell, Big Ben(d?), etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1909 monitoring: news from Hamburger Lokalradio is that the Saturday broadcast at 1531 has been moved from 7265-CUSB to 6190-CUSB (same as at 0730). That will escape ChiCom CCI from East Turkistan --- but Aoki shows TWO ChiComs at same time on 6190, hopefully less of a factor in Europe: CRI Vietnamese, 500 kW, 193 degrees from Beijing site; and PBS Xinjiang in Mongolian, 50 kW ND from Urumqi.

HLR also has special holiday programming on Dec 24-25-26-31-Jan 1, including Sundays on 6190 instead of 9485, apparently pre-empting WOR at 1130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Drastic cutbacks at WRMI as Brother HyStairical, the Overfondler, is being eliminated at last, also impacting other programming, as further observed UT Dec 22, continued from last report:

5850 & 7730 remained off during the previously scheduled Argentina relays [q.v.], at 0614 & 0945 chex. Still off at 1008, but 9455, which had duplicated 5850 during this diverse hour, is back on with `Viva Miami`.

7780 remains completely off; had been 24h with BS or `Power Hour`, or diverse at 20-21. Off at 1317 check.

At 0945, all frequencies off except 9395 & 9455 Oldies. At 1008, 9395 Oldies, and 9455 diverse.

9395 at 1257 open carrier, so had been off for a while? 1300 starting `The Power Hour` replay from 21-23 yesterday. Speaker immediately refers to this being ``after the break`` so this must be in the middle of the 2-hour show, rather than the beginning: conspiracy nonsense, electing Drumpf is reclaiming science and the country from Atheist control to Christianity, ha2. Now also on 9455. Surprisingly at 1504, 9395 // 9455 are still on with `Power Hour`, alleging elexion fraud and Xmas takeover, so there are 3 hours of repeats of 2-hour show.

11580 at 1257 open carrier, so about to resume, 1300 RAE in French. But off at 1400* already instead of continuing an hour in Spanish. By 1410 I am noticing an OTH radar(?) blob slowly drifting downward from 11600, across 11580 by 1413.

9955 // 9455, Dec 22 at 1313, usual R. Prague in English, and no doubt the further diverse programming, but 9955 closes at 1500* sharp after ID giving the phonecasting number. But what would anyone hear on that now with BS gone?

Friday afternoon need to confirm what`s happening on all frequencies 1900-2200, partially monitored yesterday. WRMI skedgrid still not updated about any of this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Dec 22 at 1421, VP S3-S5 but can recognize a Ted ad, so WTWW-3 with Xmasmx not-all-the-time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17774.888, Dec 22 at 1529, JBA carrier from KVOH, but barely enough to remeasure it to the same off-spot as yesterday. Some slight strength surges, from the transmitter rather than ionosphere? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1710 kHz, Dec 22 at 1310 UT, screaming gospel huxter in Spanish, so presumed RetÃn lo que Tienes, pirate from BÃton Rouge LA, very poor signal. But I am not the only one sometimes hearing some other pirate here, from where?

On the NRC gg, David Yocis posted an FCC NOUO dated Dec 19 about RlqT`s FM 107.7 being busted Nov 21 ---- but no mention of the AM 1710, as if the FCC were completely unaware of it (check the website!). The full notice will appear in DXLD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
