Nigeria frequency should be 7254.942, not typo 7354.942. Tnx to Wolfgang Bueschel for catching; fixed:

** ARGENTINA [non]. The expanded relays of RAE ATTW via WRMI did not start Monday May 22, but they did start Tuesday May 23.

11580, May 22 at 2025, RAE multilingual ID loop --- but it`s merely a clip within the Russian-language DX program `Padio Pinorama` which is now scheduled Mondays at 2000. The 20-21 block remains with variety of programming.

11580, May 22 at 2100, R. Slovakia International English is still here, for the last time (except will continue on weekends only). Intro mentions the current date May 22, which is something all relayed stations should do. This is to be replaced by RAE in German for the full hour.

11580, May 22 at 2200, RAE relay in Spanish, about Argentina with Argentine accent, as has already started a few weeks ago, presumably // 5950 --- yes, by 2247, 5950 is very poorly audible. New sked will split off 11580 for Italian instead.

7730, May 23 at 0030, WORLD OF RADIO is still airing instead of RAE in Spanish

9395, May 23 at 0100, the RAE English hour unrechecked tonight, and presumably still not duplicated on 11580 as originally planned.

5850 // 7730, May 23 at 0626, tango, and Japanese announcement, so the expanded RAE relay sked has now started: 06-07 Tue-Sat in Japanese; later hours not checked, but scheduled to be: 07-08 English on both; 08-09 Chinese & 09-10 Japanese on 5850 only. AdriÃn Korol tells me that the Japanese staff happen to be on vacation, so initially that service will play evergreen shows with no news. RAE has already had good response from Japan.

9955, May 23 at 1100, RAE poor in Portuguese, and also // slightly better 9455, which was not publicized, but maintaining the // hour as previously scheduled with variety of programming, ex WOR at 1100 Tuesdays.

11580, May 23 at 1300, RAE in French, fair, replacing WORLD OF RADIO on Tuesdays; recheck 1344, after Spanish song, more French about le football. RAE`s French program is only half an hour, so apparently running it twice (perhaps playing previous and current day`s show would seem less repetitive during a single consecutive hour?)

The transmission schedule at http://tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs has not been updated, but the programming grid below it has been, to show most of the RAE languages, not including 00-01 UT on 7730 which still has the old sked instead of expected RAE Spanish. The separate 9955 sked has also changed 1100 Mon-Fri to RAE in Portuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 5995, May 23 at 1258, JBA carrier, and nothing, not even jamming on 6003, so Echo of Hope has apparently returned to new 5995, after a brief resumption of old 6003. And another carrier on new 6350 instead of old 6348. RNZI remains safely on 6170, with bell-bird IS from 1258..

Chris Krug in Tulsa also reports this to the DXLD yg: ``Echo of Hope back on 5995 at 1045 UT (May 23) with nice copy (23322), 6003 still being jammed. Announcers talking and laughing. RHC crowds it a little at 1100 but still armchair copy. Chris KC5IIE, Tulsa, OK, SDRplay - 40m loop`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7354.942, May 23 at 0548, VON is already on, S9+20 with rappish Afromusic, dead air, and resumes. Warming up for the 0600 Hausa, presumably preceded by a few minutes of official drumming IS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, May 22 at 2333, no signal from R. Chaski, despite not cutting off until 2335:22* at previous catch May 20. Therefore it`s just off, or has already reset the autotimer closer to 2330.0. Further chex required (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1878 monitoring: confirmed Monday May 22 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.30v-CUSB, fair S7-S9. Also confirmed UT Tuesday May 23 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+20, which is expected to be replaced by Spanish hour from RAE, maybe from May 24? NOT confirmed Tue May 23 at 1100 on WRMI 9455 & 9955, which has now been replaced by RAE in Portuguese; nor Tue May 23 at 1300 on WRMI 11580, now replaced by RAE in French. Next WORs, including those still showing on WRMI sked:
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 9455 to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455 to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** BULGARIA. 9400, May 22 at 0234, lo-fi phone caller? about J. C., not // Overcomer 7730 etc., poor, and sounds like some other audio mixing. `End Times Coming` to the Mideast via Secretbrod is now scheduled at 0230-0300; much weaker than 9395 WRMI. ETC is treated as if it were a ``station`` on a par with BBCWS in the UK, on page 497 of the 2017 WRTH, altho inactive at the time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6754-USB & 15034-USB, May 21 & 22, various chex for ``Trenton Military``, CHR VOLMET find nothing on night or day frequencies. In fact I think I have not noticed them for several days before. Normally off the air from :00 to :10 past the hours, so make sure to check at othertimes.

http://www.dxinfocentre.com/volmet.htm

6.754 10 , CHR CAN QUINTE WEST TRENTON MILITARY 44 01 56 -77 31 01 2310-1100 Z
15.034 10 , CHR CAN QUINTE WEST TRENTON MILITARY 44 01 56 -77 31 01 1010-2400 Z
BTW, 15034 is the highest frequency on this list for any SW VOLMET.

For example, NOTHING: May 21 at 1311, 1343; (NY Radio is only poorly audible on 10051-USB at 1343 May 21). More nothing from CHR: May 22 at 0225; May 22 at 1148, 1325. Of course, propagation especially on 15 MHz has been pitiful, but at the latter logtime, there was sporadic E boosting 15825 WWCR, and by 1420 MUF has reached 103 MHz. Still no 15034 at 1646. So what has become of CHR? No more can one hear ``no report received`` over & over? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9700, May 21 at 1253, S6 talk in Chinese, not // much stronger 9680 CNR1 jammer; also a JBA carrier on 9700 at 1356 May 22; this turned out to be CNR16 on new SW frequency. Altho WRTH translates it as Voice of China Country, it`s not about music: ``Rural Voice`` is another version for this station originally on MW 720. Ron Howard forwards this info:

Google translation : Chinese to English
http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_7ae04bef0102xg57.html
----------------------------------------------------------------------
China's rural voice temporarily opened short-wave frequency broadcast.

Due to the launch pad for technical renovation, the Central People's Broadcasting Station China Rural Voice in the wave AM720 in May 17, 2017 02:05 to June 10 02:05 during the temporary shutdown, after the resumption of 10:05 on June 10 In the wave AM720 broadcast. Technical renovation overhaul period, the Chinese village voice program by the two short-wave frequency on behalf of the broadcast, the specific broadcast time:
(Beijing time) [UT]
04:55-06:30 9700 kHz 2055-2230
06:30-19:00 17780 kHz 2230-1100
19:00-00:05 9700 kHz 1100-1605
----------------------------------------------------------------------
A similar situation concerns the 1053 kHz station, Central People's Broadcasting Station Voice of the Elderly, until June 30 on 9620 at night, 17875 daytime. There have been a number of other changes concerning China domestic SW usage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 5995, May 22 at 1144, no signal from the Korean radio war, but noise jamming resumed on 6003, presumably also target Echo of Hope. So moved to 5995 for only a few days, meanwhile impulsing NZ to shift to 6170, where it might as well stay as who knows what the Koreans will do next (tho VOK could also reactivate 6170). At 1149 I check 75m for carriers besides Japan on 3925 & 3945: they are on 3910, 3930, 3985, 3990. Ron Howard agrees:

``Echo of Hope - VOH. What is happening? Were the new frequencies 5995 and 6350 just tests? May 22, at 1039, noted them back on former 6003 (ex 5995) // 6348 (ex 6350), as well as the usual // 3985 // 6250; all were jammed. At 1121 found all four frequencies in the clear, with no white noise jamming; 3985 fair reception; 6003 good; 6250 fair (the best I have ever heard then here!) and 6348 fair. Jamming resumed within a minute or two`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7585, May 22 at 0330, JBA carrier where there is no legal broadcasting. Walt Salmaniw confirms Station YHWH was on here again tonight, his latest favorite frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1020, May 21 at 2201 UT check, KOKP Perry is off the air for at least the second day in a row; and at 1646 UT check May 22, at least third day in a row (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1260, May 22 at 0242 UT tune-by, ``KWSH, Today`s Best Country``, from 1/1 kW U2 Wewoka station, better than I can hear it on daytime groundwave, and likely on ND day pattern instead of night with a notch toward Enid. NRC AM Log had slogan as `The station you grew up with`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non non]. 17815, Sunday May 21 at 1338, Brother Scare is S9 on new frequency of WHRI, ex-21610. Exact hours vary and maybe other gospel huxters here at certain times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sunday May 21 at 1948, no signal from REE`s North American frequency, but JBA carrier on 17715 to elsewhere, and more than that on 15520, 15390 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1878 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 21 at 2340 the 2330 airing on WBCQ 9330.35v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Monday May 22 at 0300:10 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.80-AM, immediately after JL`s ``The show is over, gotta go`` shtick, and no ID. Also confirmed UT Monday May 22 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, good but choppy.

Expanded RAE relays on WRMI will displace some following airings, but they had not started morning of May 22, so just in case:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW [to be canceled]
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 9455 to WNW [to be canceled]
Tue 1300 WRMI 11580 to NE [NEW; to be canceled]
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 9455 to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455 to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955 // stronger 9455, Monday May 22 at 1138, WRMI with `Antena DX`, greeted by Antonio Buitrago of REE`s media program. So not yet replaced by RAE Argentina ao Mundo in Portuguese. Adrian Korol tells me May 22 is the start date for all the languages via WRMI, so maybe from tomorrow, when WORLD OF RADIO would have aired at 1100 Tuesday. Also RAE French at 1300 on 11580 has not yet started, at 1317 with `Wavescan`, while 9955 also has another WS playback just started at 1315, 15 minutes out of synch. Furthermore, Ukraine relay still after 1330 on 11580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, May 22 at 1322, ``Be My Baby`` on WRMI Oldies, ID by Bob Biermann only for ``9395`` (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, May 22 at 1357, KVOH is already on at S9+20 and modulating English to boot with ID and IS? loop, ``This is Strategic Communications Group, Voice of Hope, KVOH, Los Angeles``. Who would guess that a name like S.C.G. is not secular? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 720, UT Monday May 22 at 0255, somestation here is playing music of somesort --- could it possibly be WGN? Yes, per sked at 9-11 pm CDT Sundays: ``After Hours with Rick Kogan: Chicago photographs, music, clocks and the making of Teddy Roosevelt --- Tonight on the program, Rick Kogan delved into the worlds of music, photography, clocks and history. To begin, publishers Richard Cahan and Michael Williams joined Rick in studio to talk about their new book, "Chicago: Classic Photographs." Then, Ben Montalbano from local band MatthÃus joined Rick and producer Lise to debut his bandâs brand new song, "To the Years," and talk about his upcoming EP. Jason Matthiesen from the Chicago Clock Company called in to talk about the businessâ 100thâ

** U S A. 780-CUSB, May 22 at 0253 UT, C&W music with no LSB, which is how KCEG Fountain CO transmits, why? Tuning LSB I hear only WBBM, while on USB they are mixing. As I said concerning KHAC 880, Sept 11, 2014, `` We are wondering if lacking LSB is a defect or deliberate employment of the Kahn Powerside System``. Here`s one thread about it:
http://www.broadcastengineering.info/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3124
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1020, UT Monday May 22 at 0249 UT, Spanish sermon dominant from KCKN Roswell NM, obviously high power, 50 kW, and not protecting Pittsburgh, also in the continuing absence of my nearby KOKP Perry OK. Understation has religion in English which fits for KDKA on Sunday night, EDT: ``9p-11p Amplify with Father Ron Lengwin`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, May 21 at 2201 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS is off the air for at least the second day in a row; and May 22 at 1646 UT, at least the third day in a row (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1700, May 22 at 0241 UT, KKLF Richardson TX with ``My Heart Is a Ghost Town`` rock song in English, 0243 UT ``al ritmo con â mÃsica, Banda 13``, into rock song in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9799.6, May 20 at 2216, dead air at S8, or maybe JBM, no doubt R. Cairo in ``English`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII. 6501-USB, May 20 at 0625, robotic marine weather with Pacific coordinates, distorted modulation. No self-respecting ham would allow his transmission to be so out of whack, but the USCG would: EiBi lists as NMO Honolulu at 0600-0635, time-shared with other USCG in Kodiak, Guam, Chesapeake (and not so shared with XSL Fuzhou Radio) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. RE: 5995 usurped by Korean radio war

Hi Glen[n], Thank you for the info, it is not good news for us. I have had a listen to reception in Cairns and Guam and the co-channel is serious. Keep a look out for us we may move to 6170 1300-1650 UTC. Regards (Adrian Sainsbury, RNZI, 0056 UT May 19, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

As I noted later May 19 at 1310, RNZI was still on 5995, but May 20 at 1340 check, it has indeed moved to 6170, in the clear. Aoki shows no problem there, only Romania at other times, and imaginary Philippines station, altho first Sat of month might appear minuscule Scandinavian Weekend Radio from Finland in the daytime. RNZI sked now includes:

12:59 - 18:58 6170 AM from 20 May Pacific Sat
12:59 - 16:50 6170 AM from 20 May Pacific Sun - Fri

I replied: ``Adrian, Good and clear on 6170 today at 1340 check. A few days ago your schedule implied two transmitters, one in DRM, one for cyclone warnings at certain hours. Was this correct, second transmitter temporarily reactivated? Carrying different programming??
Glenn`` And he replies May 20 at 2017 UT:

Hello Glen[n], Yes indeed 6170 sounded fine today. We still have the original Thomson transmitter which was retired last year. However it is useful to use it to cover maintenance down time on the newer main transmitter. It was also used recently to provide an AM service to the Cyclone hit Islands during the period we need the main TX for our DRM service. Regards, Adrian, RNZI Wellington`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1020, May 20 at 1817 UT, KOKP Perry, semi-local ``Triple Play Sports Radio`` is off, while its usually // sibling 1580 KOKB Blackwell is fine. If it keeps off, that will clear the way for KCKN Roswell at night with WWRV 1330 NYC relay. During my bandscan at the kite field, rest filed under USA (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 27185, May 20 at 1839 UT, some lofi CBer is relaying ``KJ103`` with Rianna, and // hifi 102.7 KJYO OKC. It`s strong and steady, likely local. On the BST-1 caradio which has a few major CB frequencies programmed in (which have also been stopping on short-skip openings full of hets and nonsense).

27184.65-AM, May 20 at 2233 on the home NRD-545, extremely strong S9+70? pinning the meter open carrier. Likely from a nearby neighbor, maybe the same one relaying KJYO earlier (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, May 20 at 1810 UT, KOSR Stillwater fill-in for // 91.7 KOSU, is audible with the BST-1 caradio turned off its feeder frequency, as Family Radio satellator in Enid is off again, K202BY. It has a lot of outages (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, KUCO, Edmond transmission back to normal signal levels later May 19 and 20. Saturday May 20 at 1345 UT during `Performance Oklahoma`, the OKC Philharmonic, Joel Levine conducting, is performing Chaikofsky`s Symphony No. 5 in e, Op. 64, recorded at the Civic Center Music Hall on April 15. I have heard countless recorded performances of that opus by major world orchestras, and this performance is also world-class. Non-Okies might never know how good the OKC Phil is, if it has no recording contract nor any regular radio broadcasts beyond KUCO, its satellites and Public Radio Tulsa (KWTU 88.7 playing PerfOkla UT Sunday 01-03; however at 0145 May 21, a playback mixup restarts the opening Roman Carnival Overture instead of Chai-5) (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, May 20 at 1842 UT, KAMG-LP, Enid, remains totally overmodulated/distorted, and furthermore is splattering at least out to 91.8 and 92.4 on the PL-880 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, May 20 at 2329, I`m having my first go at trying to hear R. Chaski at its sesquihour-earlier closedown time, and yes, there it is, a JBA carrier in the noise level, even more JBA than it usually was circa 0100. I stay with it, until it finally autocuts off at 2335:22* or so (with fading the timing is not so sharp). Next project is whether it recess ~6.7 seconds per noctem in a proximate recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9830, May 20 at 2215, VOT English opening a talk about culture, ruined by the exactly co-channel RTTY station. Sometimes it quits circa 2200, but not today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 28289.90, May 20 at 2227, a CW propagation beacon by sporadic E repeating IDs as WJ5O/B AL. Searching out a beacon list, guess what, he`s the guy providing a huge roster by frequency updated 19 May 2017:
http://www.qsl.net/wj5o/bcn.htm
including himself, a.k.a. William H. Hays, SMSgt, USAF, Ret.:
28.2893 WJ5O C TROY ALABAMA # 2W, VERTICAL New Frequency 25 Jan 14
The C means continuous. The # means confirmed active. But I am not hearing much else on 10m, just a weak and Es-deep-fading unID USB on 28409.90 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1878 CONTENTS: *DX and station news about: Argentina non, Australia, Bougainville, Burundi non, China, Cuba, Fiji, Kashmir non, Korea North, Korea South, Kosovo, Morocco, North America, PerÃ, Russia, Slovakia non, Taiwan, USA

Also confirmed Saturday May 20 at 1445 the 1431 broadcast on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB, via UTwente SDR, good vs noise level and no CCI; ends at 1500 sharp when the ChiCom timesignal is JBA. Also confirmed Saturday May 20 at 2230 on WBCQ 9330.34v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Sunday May 21 after 0200 on WRMI 11580, fair. Next:

** U S A. 15825, May 20 at 1841, WWCR is VG tnx to a sporadic E opening, rather than usual barely audible signal in the longer skip zone. 13845 WWCR also much better than usual here. A pilot for possible opening into VHF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, May 20 at 1848, WTWW-2 is OFF, instead of Amateur Radio Newsline, so was presumably also off for `Theater Organ from the Ozarx` preceding it (however, 5085 on with organ at 0132 check May 21). 12105, WTWW-3 is also off at 1848. But 9475, WTWW-1 is on, ham talk presumably live(?) from Dayton Hamvention (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. At the kite field of northern Enid, far from powerlines, a quick midday bandscan May 20 on the caradio finds:

560, May 20 at 1814 UT, fast SAH, One is certainly KWTO Springfield MO on its groundwave periphery, and only two possibilities for the other, KLVI Beaumont TX and KLZ Denver CO. More likely KLZ, slightly closer despite its tight N-S pattern. KLTT 670 Denver is weakly audible as always on daytime groundwave, with 10x the power of 560, but not KHOW 630, at least not with 640 OK splatter, but not IBOC.

760, May 20 at 1815 UT, KCCV Kansas City has a SAH from a second station. Here we have three possibilities by proximity: 50 kW KDSP Denver, 50 kW KTKR San Antonio, both with patterns bad for us, and 10 kW KMTL Sherwood AR, non-direxional and closer, but poor conductivity from AR, so I again have to prefer Denver. (KOA 850 BTW is not making it now, but maybe would if there were something to SAH).

Axually there is, KJON The Metroplex TX, but all very weak signals seem to be weaker than usual. I suspect there is some desensitization across the dial due to proximity of my two locals 960 KGWA and 1390 KCRC, whose splatter and spurs are also worse:

1040, May 20 at 1817 UT, KGWA talk audible here // fundamental 960.

1130, May 20 at 1818 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is OFF, audiblizing a very weak trace of something, maybe remnant of KWKH Shreveport. Also see OKLAHOMA for another OFF.

1190, May 20 at 1819 UT, fast SAH between two very weak stations, probably KFXR The Metroplex TX and KDMR Kansas City MO, tho there are also stations in KS and AR.

1610+, some lite line noise is still detectable on the vacant part of the X-band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
