Hauser
** AUSTRALIA. 9580 // 12085 // 12065, Thu Dec 22 at 1405, Radio Australia on another Thursday opening the secret program `All in the Mind` from Radio National; this episode guest is yet another American, Steven Cole of UCLA about social genomix. This half-hour is still missing from the RA online program schedule until `Babytalk` at 1430 Thursday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 12045, Thu Dec 22 at 0752, surprised to find local KCRC silly sports talk here from 1390 --- surely caused by another overload mix on the R75 --- it goes away if I switch from Preamp2 to 1 or no preamp. 12045 minus 1390 = 10655, but nothing there. Half-asleep, I miscalculated the plus so did not check 13435, but that is a known HM01 spy numbers frequency as Ivo Ivanov reported last June:
``0655-0750 on 13435 secret/hidden site (Bejucal) Spanish Tu/Th/Sa``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7175, Dec 22 at 1357, S5-S7 HOA music from VOBME-2 intruder; also JBA carrier circa 7146.55 from VOBME-1, long path when I am getting 7120 SOMALILAND much better. 7175 JBA carrier still audible at 1515, 1543 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120, Dec 22 at 1356, S9-S6 carrier from R Hargeisa, unmodulated, or just-barely? QRM at 1359 from a KA5 calling CQ. Better signal now on long path than I was getting after 0330 short path. 7120 stays on until 1403:35*. Resumes circa 1500, so at 1515 recheck, JBA carrier and still at 1542 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TINIAN. 7195, Dec 22 at 1543, JBA carrier but much stronger than 7175 Eritrea. Must be RFA in Korean at 15-17, ex-7210. What`s IBB doing, invading the worldwide hamband? No doubt the IARU intruder-watchers are on the case (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.752-AM, Dec 22 at 0739, S6-S7 VP signal with talk, WBCQ on a backup transmitter? Usual one on ``5130`` has been on the high side lately. Pirates might try to fool us by going on a real station`s frequency after-hours, but at 0743 it`s an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback from before Thanksgiving, talking with Tom Medlin, plugging his `Amateur Radio Roundtable` Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on 9330. Allan refers to Tom as ``the Glenn Hauser of amateur radio``! Recheck at 0758, first seems off, no, still on as JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730 // 5850, Thu Dec 22 at 0733, WRMI in narration with music, apparently `How the Grinch Stole Xmas`. Is that Keith Perron? This hour continues to be unaccounted for on the schedule grid, other than `World Music` on 7730, supposedly TOM on 5850. Recheck 7730 at 0748 just as it dumps off the air, while 5850 continues with the ``rump-a-pump-pump`` carol. Quick check of all the other WRMI frequencies finds them still nominal, mostly BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Dec 22 at 0734, the S9+20 Dead Air Service of Scriptures for America Worldwide on WTWW-1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, Dec 22 at 1407, WEWN Spanish is instead open carrier, dead air except for big hum. Same at 1514. Not rechecked until 1721, when it is Spanishing but still humming. It`s really amazing and disheartening how many SW stations, including some in the USA, cannot achieve their basic mission of transmitting and modulating clearly and reliably at the same time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Dec 22 at 1509, KVOH is back on after a week off, Spanish preaching, S9+20 and stable rather than wobbly, different transmitter? No, I then find this reply from Ray Robinson to my previous report:

``KVOH had an elusive fault with the 17775 kHz transmitter. Now fixed. Should be back on Thursday with full 50 kW. Ray. Sent from my HTC One max on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network`` (Glen Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search December 22, UT:
666-NW at 1333. Altho it loops appropriately for Japan or China, also seems a bit unstable, so may be a birdie. No others in complete bandscan, not even 1566, except:

1098-W at 1336, surely the usual V7AB Marshall Islands, probably a bihour after programming ceased, carrier staying on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4775, Dec 22 at 0735, weak carrier with some talk audible, vs CODAR, still JBA at 0758. Either R. Tarma, PerÃ, or R. Congonhas, Brasil, both of which are active. Unless 24h, the latter more likely where it`s already 5:35 am BDT. I should have precised the frequency, as Carlos GonÃalves, Portugal has reported: ``4774.964 R. Congonhas, Congonhas MG, 2218-2228, 03/12, texto; 22331, QRM do PERU, em 4774.910`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6165, Dec 22 at 1351, a S Asian song by soprano, 1355 another song with male voice. Hoping for Myanmar, but per Aoki this is a VERY congested frequency in Asia: CNR6 in Chinese from Beijing; Vietnam-4 in Dao; Thazin Radio in Burmese; and AIR in Sindhi from Delhi-Khampur site. The last seems most likely. A better signal than many others on 49m from China (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1750 UT December 22

Hauser
** BIAFRA [non]. 15325, Dec 21 at 1508, poor S4-S6 carrier, presumably R. Biafra`s latest channel, as now scheduled approx. 15-16 and 18-20 via BULGARIA but Ivo Ivanov says there was nothing but music fill on Dec 7 and 10. Now I do hear some talk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9490, Dec 21 at 0450, wall of noise jamming at S9+5 is still running, altho R. RepÃblica via France must be off by now, no carrier amid the noise. 9565 also has pulse jamming at S8, long after R. Martà is finished with this frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Dec 20 at 0458, RHC open carrier at S9+35, while English on 6165 is OK; shortly 6100 starts modulating in Spanish, not English but before 0500 has switched to English (0500 is the start time for 6100). 6060, meanwhile, at 0459 is S9+30 but JBM in English.

6060, Dec 21 0538, RHC English is S9+40 of dead air, or straining, just barely modulated.

6000, Dec 22 at 0258, RHC English is suptorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. 5950, Dec 20 at 0501, WRMIBS has some CCI weaker talk underneath. Must be V of Tigray Revolution, from ETHIOPIA, in Aoki until 0530 (but not in HFCC) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935, Dec 21 at 1427, music and YL talk in Japanese, S5-S9 until 1435*, new frequency for Shiokaze, ex-5910 where I found nothing, and QSY confirmed by Ivo Ivanov. Chris Greenway forwards a Japan Times story that the government will be increasing funding for Furusato no Kaze in order to add more frequencies next fiscal year (from April 1, presumably), no details yet. This 1405-1435 daily broadcast of Shiokaze is believed to be a relay of FnK, in addition to its original broadcasts (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1857, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 1566 kHz, Dec 20 at 1339 I`m chasing again FEBC, HLAZ Jeju Island, and there it is looping NW, 1342 music, and I am listening with offset BFO for a carrier break, which happens for a few seconds at 1344:34 as the beam is being changed from Japan to China. Distance from the 250 kW station is 10995 km or 6832 statute miles (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1857, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5007.952vv, Dec 21 at 0250, S6 RNM is varying audibly as I tune it with BFO, 0257 a song, gradually weakening as sun rises down there, to a JBA carrier by 0324. Best on LSB tuning to avoid 5015 WRMIBSplatter; maybe that`s why RNM is varying lower and lower from nominal 5010, hi, as it used to be up as high as 5013. Tnx to tip from Stephen Wood in MA who was hearing it tonight as early as 0210 varying 5007.98-5007.87. Also reported in this area last few days by Ron Howard in CA, Art Delibert in MD, Wolfgang BÃschel & Thorsten Hallmann in Germany. On much earlier than 0300 sign-on as in WRTH 2017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [and non]. 6185, Dec 21 at 0328, XEPPM music mixing with VATICAN. Clear at 0339 and sometimes the music modulation surges above usual low level. Checking because Terry Krueger, Clearwater FL, had asked me at 0029 UT, ``What`s with 6185? Blowing in with real modulation? Nice ancient Mexi-folk tunes`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 5792.00, Dec 21 at 0503, [Station YHWH] is here instead of 5790, S9 vs Xmas noise level of S8. Off at 0535 recheck.

5792.00, again Dec 22 at 0325, 0337, YHWH guy is JBA, at S9 = same level as noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1857, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120, Dec 22 at 0331, no signal yet from R. Hargeisa, but on at 0338 recheck, S6-S8 talk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035, Dec 20 at 1409, VOT English service is not in English, but Turkic language with stingers as if amid headlines, S4-S9; 1413 music, 1418 losing to 12050 WEWN splatter. Maybe discombobulated in aftermath of assassination right there in Ankara? Assuming crossed feeds, only other languages scheduled this hour in WRTH 2017 are Russian on 9410, Turkish on 11815, and Uighur on 13685.

12035.02, S3-S8, Dec 21 at 1405, Turkish songs so can`t tell yet if English, Uighur, Turkish or Russian service. Finally at 1423, news headlines indeed in English, less than one play of IS and off at 1425*.

11815.039, Dec 21 at 1530, Turkish talk at S9, as this is really TRT at 14-17 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7457-USB, Tue Dec 20 at 1406, AFA4LH calling Florida stations, lots of replies and relays, ``closing time 1445Z``.

I last logged this AF MARS frequency Tue Jan 12, 2016 at 1405, also involving Florida. Also 10 previous logs of 7457 going back to 2008.
Believe it or not, the only Google hit on call AFA4LH MARS is in the March 1993 issue of PopComm (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1856 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday December 20 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, VG S9+30; not confirmed at same time on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, no signal (while 9265 WINB is a JBA carrier). Also confirmed Tue Dec 21 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, good; also confirmed Tue Dec 20 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, fair more or less over jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! Not confirmed UT Wed Dec 21 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, no signal, (while 9265 WINB is JBA carrier; 7490 WBCQ is audible, and 9955 WRMI is now VP). Also confirmed Wed Dec 21 at 1415.5 on WRMI 9955, S9+10, no jamming. Also confirmed Wed Dec 21 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490 and webcast.

** U S A. 9955, Dec 21 at 2136, WRMI World Music hour is now confronting moderately heavy Cuban jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Wed Dec 21 at 1505, KVOH is still missing. 9975 evening English has been gone since last spring, so now KVOH is totally off the air. Maybe they are in final stages of activating long-delayed replacement transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Dec 21 at 2114, WTWW-2 again with distorted S9+30 Xmasmx instead of Dave Ramsey show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275.049, Dec 21 at 2114, WMLK is still on with DEJOM intoning, P-F S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1020, Dec 21 at 0528 UT, Spanish pentecostal gospel huxter overcoming KOKP Perry OK, especially if I null it, typical of what KCKN Roswell NM used to accomplish before it crashed. Making 3.5 Hz SAH = 210/minute. At 0531 UT, KDKA makes it thru with ID and CBS News Update. AM Switch in NRC DX News post-dated Dec 26 reports:

``STAs granted: 1020, KCKN NM Roswell â Granted STA with U4(?) 1000/1000; bad tubes in main transmitter`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1857, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, Dec 21 at 0524 UT, S9+40 signal in silly sports talk, overcoming KMOX IBOC circa 1133. Playing ``Spanish Flea`` song in background. Must be KWKH Shreveport LA on 50 kW ND day pattern, much more signal than we normally get at night when it`s supposed to be a wide blob centered on SSW, essentially nothing to the north (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1250, Dec 21 at 0519 UT, strange rappish song of syllables, including ``konichiwa`` a couple times, but not sure rest is Japanese; then songs in Spanish and English, but more than one station mixing. 0521 UT fades in strange language again, 0522 UT Spanish announcement re navidad, and English ad for tickets at Little Rock Center, a venue? Or Little Rock Central, referring to the notorious historic high school? So I will tentatively ID this one as KPZK, 2000/1200 watts U4, UC:AC format from Little Rock AR, per NRC AM Log (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Dec 20 at 1355 UT, KBXD Dallas, Radio Salam Namaste W&M chattering in Hinglish, something about banana chips (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1590, Dec 20 at 0513 UT, HPRN Sports report, including a Nazarene girls` team, forecast hi today 56, lo 29 (obviously stale from previous morning hours), fishing license PSA, 0515 UT High Plains Radio Network, AM 1590. Therefore it is KDAV Lubbock TX, 1000/1000 watts U4. Some QRM from S Asian music, KMIC Houston or WCGO Evanston IL? Also a low audible het (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 91.7, Dec 19 at 1428 UT on KOSU, Caught most of a report about a tiny diamond radio, on NPR Morning Edition, viz.:

This Christmas Song Brought To You By The World's Tiniest Radio Receiver 2:35 [with audio]
http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/12/19/506151375/this-christmas-song-brought-to-you-by-the-worlds-tiniest-radio-receiver
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search Dec 20, UT:
1098-west at 1336, presumed V7AB Marshall Islands; only other is 1566, see KOREA SOUTH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4863.97, Dec 20 at 0645, JBA carrier; Brasil? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4960, Dec 20 at 0643, open carrier at S5-S7. I guess it must be VOA SAO TOME, again failing to modulate. Sunrise there is circa 0530 UT, almost on the Equator, so could still be propagating, and nothing else audible on frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 0639 UT December 22

Hauser
** AUSTRALIA. 2485 & 2325, Dec 19 at 1349, S9 Oz talk from doomed VL8 Shower Service stations, and natch 4835.

9580 > 12085 >> 12065, Dec 19 at 1405, RA is back on all three doomed frequencies after AWOL last two days. 9580 is S9+10/20 with discussion of women and food, gingerbread, condiments. By 1420 it`s reminiscences of watching movies in the 1940s on shipboard, with lots of background noise. RA online program schedule continues to show nothing during the 14 UT hour, on Mondays (unless `Conversations with Richard Fidler` from 1300 is now two hours long). But that show has just gone into summer repeats until January 23.

Jerry Lenamon, Waco, calculates based on Victorian electricity documents, that power costs at Shepparton would have increased about 71% from 2006 to 2013, even more now, a possible factor in deciding to close it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9645.3, Dec 19 at 0614, no signal from R. Bandeirantes. This has been off for some weeks, but I may not have noted it. Meanwhile, numerous other off-frequency ZYs provide carriers at least now starting with 11925+ Bandeirantes; 11935+, 11855-, 11765-, 9819-, 9725-, 9665+, 9630, 9565, 5940- (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 5939.83, Dec 19 at 0627, Portuguese talk and music, from R. Voz MissionÃria, usually blasted away by 5935 WWCR but which is weakened at the moment, tho resurging later in the hour. BTW, this is the only ZY SW frequency in WRTH 2016 with a blank in the callsign column; why, and what is it, really? Maybe 2017 shows it. Reliable // 9665v is ZYE890 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Dec 19 at 1529, no signal from Trenton Military (nor did I hear it last night on 6754-USB). Must be off for repairs. Don Moman, Alberta, already replied Dec 18 to my original report:

``15034 was still very distorted at 1952 but seems back to normal at 2040 UT. I did send off a quick note at that time to our CFARS group (our equivalent to MARS) in case someone there might know someone in charge of that [to] forward it, but I suspect it was just coincidence that it was cleared up. Don VE6JY``

15034, Dec 19 at 1835, CHR, Trenton Military is back with good modulation, but as too often happens, defaulting to ``no report received`` from places like Thule. At 1836 UT gives own time as 1735 zulu! So still not fully funxional (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Dec 19 at 0253, RHC Spanish is S9 of open carrier/dead air! Just like it was last night, Dec 18 at 0655 check. So always? Yes, still OC/DA tonight Dec 19 at 0623 check just as `DXers Unlimited` is ending on all the other English frequencies; shux, missed it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 1566, Dec 19 at 1339, carrier looping NW on the DX-398 with internal antenna only, and at last I can pull some audio: talk, maybe Korean? and piano music. Could also get the carrier at 1343 but no audio on the R-75 with E-W longwire. At 1345 weaker, no audio audible. It`s FEBC, HLAZ from Jeju (Cheju) Island, 250 kW. WRTH 2016 shows 1345 is the time it transitions from Japanese to Chinese, no doubt also antenna change correlating with signal drop here, altho it`s already just after sunrise. Aoki also shows those times but no azimuth info. A few minutes earlier, I had sought TP carriers on lowband, 774 etc., but none audible. Then checked NK MW/low SW frequencies and found 2850 to be S7 at 1347, 3250 also audible, but nothing unusual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, Dec 19 at 1404, Denge Kurdistane is S7-S9 with Kurdish talk (steadier than 11860 Yemen [non] ranging S5-S9). At 1411 recheck, there is an echo, caused by 3 possibilities: 1) long/short path from one site; 2) two sites overlapping with slightly different satellite feeds; 3) deliberately imposed effect on original modulation. Ivo Ivanov continues to update the schedule, showing 11600 at 06-15 is all via PRIDNESTROVYE. At 15-16 he hears second harmonic on 23200, so concludes that hour is from his nearby BULGARIA site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Dec 19 at 1837, MWV is on but only poor carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035, Dec 19 at 1404, no signal from VOT English to Europe and USward, but 1408 recheck, it`s on, at S4-S6 with Turkish music. A very late switch from preceding German until 1325 on 15270? Or just being intermittent. 1418 modulation cuts off and on, dead air, then carrier off. 1422 it`s back on with closing IS, off again at 1426 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1856 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday December 19 from 0403 on Area 51 webcast, and also on WBCQ, 5130.079-AM as measured an hour earlier. Also confirmed Mon Dec 19 from 0430 on WRMI webcast, JBA carrier on 9955. Next:
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130.055-AM, UT Mon Dec 19 at 0632, Area 51 is still on! I often check frequency in case this happen, yet Dec 18 sked at
http://zappahead.tumblr.com/
shows nothing after 0500 as usual. Really off-the-wall scatter-brained stuff, like a pirate gone wild; talk mixed with music, mentions KPFA, Jeffrey Dahmer story, Bob, standing in line, hamburger. 0647 song ``Roll Out the Pork Barrel``, 0648 mentions WCSB(?) Cleveland, still going past 0700. A P O Box address I can`t copy at 0703. Confirmed not a pirate, by AW quick WBCQ ID inserted at 0705, still going at 0720 when I can`t stay awake any longer. Ad-hoc Hours of Slack? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730 // 5850, December 19 at 0708, WRMI in church service with choir and organ. Scheduled on 7730 at least on Mondays is `Your Weekend Show`, squeezed out of the TruNews disservice, but unseems to be that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, Dec 19 at 0645, WWCR is S9+40 of dead air, still at 0658. Can`t let WTWW and RHC get all the dead-air attention! 3215 is nominal with WWCRBS. Mon program missed at this hour is `Inspirations Across America`. Refund? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 17775, Dec 19 at 1526 and 1854, KVOH is still AWOL when it should be back on a weekday. Did however note without logging, VOH-Africa, ZAMBIA on 11680, poor circa 0630 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, Dec 19 at 0255, JBA carrier from WTWW-1, not yet switched to 5830 night frequency, but which has happened by 0302 recheck; yet propagation is such that even 5830 is very poor (like 5890 neighbor WWCR). WTWW.us website says transition time is 9 pm CDT on one page, merely 9 pm Central on another.

9475, Dec 19 at 1424, WTWW with frequent IADs during harangue by a pre-deceased Pastor Pete Peters, who is in no position to complain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, Dec 19 at 1837, WMLK is on with a very poor carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2520, Dec 19 at 1348 UT, S6 carrier with some fading to S5, no modulation audible which ought to be, if there be any; 1355-1402 UT monitored continuously in case about to sign-on. Likely a second harmonic, and Tim Tromp in West Michigan had just reported yesterday to the harmonics yg: ``WOCO on 2520 (2 x 1260), Strong signal right now on 2520 // to 1260 kHz (also heard here) and confirmed with a clear TOH ID at 1300 UT with local talk and Christmas music``. WOCO of course is close to him in Oconto, Wisconsin, 1000/29 watts U1 plus 500-watt PSRA. WOCO official sunrise is 1315 UT in Dec, 1330 in Jan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4864+, Dec 19 at 0645, open carrier at S4-S6, also past 0710. Slightly on the hi side but not measured. Maybe Brasil? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4940-USB, Dec 19 at 0643, intermittent 2-way, very poor in French? Maybe Canadian; only one side of contact audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4960, Dec 19 at 0642, open carrier ranging S5-S7, still past 0700, when I am alert for something to start. Weakening a bit by 0710. Another of these 60m mysteries (which is really a fixed utility band around here). I think it`s a bit late for VOA SÃo Tomà to be incoming, but it is indeed scheduled until 0730, switching from French to Hausa at 0700. There is certainly enough signal for modulation to be audible if there be any. 4960 is also a frequency used recently by [YHWH], but he would surely not leave transmitter on for no reason (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12182-12205, Dec 19 at 1415, approx. 23-kHz range of OTH radar clicking, with the upper boundary merging into CODAR swishes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 1935 UT December 19
