Hauser
** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, Nov 14 at 2030, still no R. Tirana relay as
scheduled via WRMI, rather right into World Music fill. I also try to
check 9395 Nov 15 at 0230, but can`t tell on the JBA carrier (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 5890, Nov 14 at 0011, JBA Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jamming against
VOA Tibetan via Kuwait, this hour only. Not WWCR which hardly
activates this frequency at all, much of it with dead air later at
night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 6100, Nov 14 at 0021, Chinese music, presumably CRI
Portuguese to Brasil, a long way direct from Beijing site; altho
co-channel 6100 CRI Sinhala via Kunming; and KCBS North Korea also
listed (Glen Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11820, Nov 14 at 0030, JBA talk, as 25m is almost dead: only
Cuban with any signal is 11950 at about S2; Brasil 11780 VP; so what`s
left stands out. HFCC shows CRI in Yue, 500 kW, 200 degrees via Xi`an,
this hour only. Yue = Cantonese, per EiBi readme, spoken by only 50
million in Guangdong, 6m in HK, and 1m in Malaysia --- but what about
the diaspora worldwide? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9955, Nov 14 at 0553, pulse jamming against nothing, since
WRMI always signs off at 0500, and only a fraxion of programming is
exile stuff elsewhen.

9490, Nov 14 at 0555, wall-of-noise jamming here, despite Radio
República via RMI via France no later than 0400* --- registered in 3
segments between 00 and 04 but I don`t think it start that early
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 4980, Nov 14 circa 0010 routine bandscan finds JBA
carrier here as not heard before since absence of WRMI; another like
it on 5060. Must be Xinjiang PBS, Urumqi. Then this report arrives
from Ron Howard:

``EAST TURKISTAN. 4850 & 4980 & 5060, Xinjiang PBS, 1327, Nov 12.
First day back again on these frequencies (different services), with
their winter schedule. As usual, Hiroshi (Japan) has all the excellent
details: "Xinjiang PBS Winter frequencies: effective from 1100 UT on
November 12, 2019. . .``

5060 is Chinese, 4980 is Uyghur; and I should also have heard the
other pair if I had tried, 4850 Kazakh and 4500 Mongolian, all from
Urumqi, land of Uyghur brainwashing.

24 hours later, Nov 15 at 0003, I do hear all four roughly equal JBA
carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2008, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 17825-DRM, Nov 14 at 1505, Mini-Transat still numerical
today, while S7-S9 17800 is not, this time with male announcer giving
marine weather in French with lots of numbers including coördinates
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 6090, Nov 14 at 0019, S9-S6 in Latin American Spanish about
Bolivia situation, i.e. VIRI Sirjan as scheduled 2350-0250; in the
absence of Anguilla but will collide when occasionally active. 6090 is
a very busy frequency; also in Aoki at various times: BBC Oman, CRI,
CNR2, NHK, Brasil [not], Romania, Ethiopia, KBS via UAE (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, Nov 14 at 0013, African music and language talk,
S9/+20. Must be Bamako on late past usual 2400*; 0016 YL ID in French
for Radio Mali on FM. Squeezed between two Cubans 5990 & 6000. Now
Aoki shows sked as 1800-0200 and 0600-0800! Is it regularly on until
0200 now? Sometimes I have also heard it early before 0600.

24 hours later, Nov 15 at 0002, music has played right thru hourtop,
but off by 0005 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2008, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 540, Nov 14 at 0731, two Mexicans to choose merely by
rotating my wrist-mounted DX-398, mutually nullable: XETX with
frequent full ID, La Ranchera de Paquimé, street address in Nuevo
Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, also mentioning FM XHTX 90.5.

And, 540, Los Cuarenta, making fast SAH, XEWA SLP SLP, indeed
off-frequency-minus; as Terry Krueger, FL, measured it Nov 1 at
539.966 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960, Nov 14 at 2341, VOT English is suptorted, just barely
modulated; something`s always wrong at Emirler. But at least no
extraneous German after 2400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday November 13 on WBCQ 7490+v, as usual starting at 2200:20;
fair.

Also confirmed UT Thursday November 14 wrapping up at 0127 on WRMI
7780, good via UTwente SDR, while direct at first check 0101, only a
JBA carrier.

http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490v, Nov 14 at 0034, NO signal from WBCQ, possibly
northerly path propped out but suspect off the air; nothing on any
other frequency: 9330, 6160v, 5130v, 3265v; except a JBA carrier
around 5130, probably a receiver birdie (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Nov 14 at 0605, WTWW-1 is on at S9+30/40 and good
modulation to boot! But with SFAW Christian identity PPPP nonsense. So
it can funxion properly and not only during Sunday morning
church-goin` time. But 9475 day frequency still mostly absent (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1530, Nov 14 at 0043 UT, ad mentioning Kentuckiana, then
Louisville Cardinals, but surely there is no KY station this close to
WCKY, which was originally in and named for Covington KY, not
trans-riverine Cincinnati. In fact, transmitter site is barely in KY.
Yes, shortly at 0046, ``home of the Cincinnati Bengals``. Plenty of
QRM: see KVDW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1530, Nov 14 at 0046 UT overcoming WCKY. ``KVDW 1530 and
V100.9 FM, VictoryFMRadio.com Little Rock``. Is 2500 watt daytimer
licensed to England AR, address in North L.R. NRC AM Log specifies *no
PSSA*, so for sure it`s on air illegally far after LSS, which in
November is FCC officially 2300 UT (same in December); or could be
only 270 watts if they are axually following their critical-hours
pre-sunset licensing.

NRC AM Log does not show any FM, but WTFDA FMDB already has 100.9 as
K265BO in England, paltry 250-watt translator of KVDW, Urban Gospel
format. England is SE of LR, about halfway to Pine Bluff. I`d think
they`d try to get an FM signal into the capital. Guess what: website
shows address in North Little Rock and a second unlettered FM on 95.3
--- but WTFDA has no match for it among the six AR 95.3s, three of
which are translators! But FCC FM Query has it: K237GW on 95.3 with
same owner Habibi`s Broadcasting LLC, relaying KVDW; but a CP for 93.7
which will have to get a new channel-number callsign. Back to WTFDA:
they already do have that, 93.7 K229DT in Little Rock, as ex-the 95.3
relay. Maybe CP on already, except KVDW website does not know about
it! See what a seemingly routine log can lead to? Each a potential
learning experience (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 90.1, KILI, Porcupine SD, the 100/100 kW Lakota Sioux
station, is featured with some studio and building shots about :44
minutes into the documentary `Red Power Energy` seen here on the
OETA/PBS World channel, Nov 14 starting at 1900 UT; check local
listings or the remaining repeats on OETA World: Sat Nov 16 at 1000
and 1800 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1203 kHz, Nov 14 at 0050 UT, IBOC ``HD`` noise peaking
here QRMing WOAI 1200, never noticed before; something new? Also
detect the other peak circa 1177, so it has to be coming from an 1190
station. Trouble is, there is not now any strong dominant AM signal on
1190 itself. NRC AM Log`s only ``I`` entries on 1190 are WLIB NYC and
WOWO Fort Wayne IN; latter would be the obvious choice altho seldom if
ever heard here since WLIB forced it into degradation. This
comprehensive website:
http://topazdesigns.com/iboc/station-list.html
rosters IBOC stations, most of them no longer, with WOWO the only
active 1190, last updated this July --- but also shows WOAI itself
active IBOC, which it has not been for a long time (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1053 kHz, since I notice a JBA carrier here, Nov 14 at
0053 UT, I perform a Trans-Atlantic MW carrier search until 0101,
finding these others on the NRD-545 with fixed antenna, rig I seldom
use for this purpose: 1044, 936, 909(2), 855, 711, 702, 693, 684, 657,
639(2), 621, 612, 531; and finally one on 1503 but nowhere else on top
half (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Nov 14 at
0612-0616 on the R75 with E-W longwire: I start at 846 which I always
assume even at this early hour is the one trans-Pacific, not Atlantic,
from Kiritimati; then, 837, 783, 774(2 with some audio - Spain),
756(2), 747(2), 711, 693, 684, 666, 657, 639(2), 612, 585, 558(2),
549, 531. Reminder that (2) means at least two carriers beating on
very slightly different frequencies.

At 0616 I resume upward: 882, 909, 954, 999, 1044, 1053, 1089, 1098,
1107 stronger, 1125, 1134, 1152, 1215, 1269, 1305, 1413, 1575, 1584.

At 0715 Nov 14 for good measure another scan this time on the DX-398
on altazimuth wrist mount: 558, 612, 684, 693, 747, 774(2), 846(TP
which has not weakened in the past hour like the Europeans), 882(2),
1134, 1413, 1485 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200-USB, Nov 14 at 0557, 2-way in colloquial Spanish
featuring some puta-madres. Or almost 1-way with a long monolog. Was
checking for that mystery open AM carrier still present sometimes but
not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, Nov 13 at 0229, WRMI S9+10/20 with Tecsun
Australia SW receiver ad (are they really trying to do business in
America?), but cut off at 0230 sharp for World Music fill instead of
Radio Tirana, which has still not been restored. Music could be Slavic
or Greek, or maybe even Albanian? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 6060, Nov 13 at 0100, dead air for a bit after
SMTV, then RAE opening relay in Spanish via WRMI, undermodulated
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 10000-CUSB, Nov 12 at 0653, PPE pips every dekasecond
mixing with WWV pips ever unisecond. Good nightmiddle trans-equatorial
propagation from Brazil also on 9665- (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Nov 12 at 1826, CHR Trenton Military still 61
minutes slow announcing ``time: 1725 zulu``, after no-reports-received
from MB and AB airports, but then received from those in BC
timestamped 1400. CHR should listen to CHU! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 9790, Nov 12 at 1537, Chinese vs Chinese making a
fast SAH, adding up to S9/+10. Scheduled here this hour only is RFA
Chinese via SAIPAN, consequently with CNR1 jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9330, Nov 13 at 0727, S9+10 of dead air --- not to be
confused with World`s Last Chance Radio via WBCQ as allegedly
scheduled 24 hours on 9330, but a long-standing hour for the Cuban spy
numbers station HM01, presumably talking and beeping during parts of
this hour alternate nights. If WLC ever get going, quite a collision
will result (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13560, Nov 13 at 1510, RHC FM spurblob at S9, only F# tone
audible, no program modulation like 13700-AM transmitter source of
this. Welcome back! Had not heard any of this for some weeks. That
means at approx. 70 kHz intervals from fundamental, so another one
soon located around 13630, with a trace of music. But much weaker on
the plus side, 13770; by 1513 all have weakened, being tweaked, or
just random? At 1531 I hear a trace of F# circa 13490 vs CODAR.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9640, Nov 12 at 1546, RHC music with a SAH from
something else --- South Korea scheduled in Aoki; HFCC adds Sa`udi
Arabia, perhaps wooden; note that per the delayed B-19 schedule from
Arnie via wb, this Antillas frequency is to be replaced with 7340 by
November 18, temprano at 12-16 UT, while 9640 will remain a tarde
frequency at 22-05 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 12 at 1824, RHC is off, but 11760 remains on in
Spanish. Per B-19 sked both are supposed to run in Spanish until 1900.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13820, Nov 12 at 1532, Radio Martí VG as usual but
some pulse jamming at last audible under; and also still pulse jamming
against nothing on ex-13605, just in case RM go back there, which it
never does until A-season (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 17800, Nov 12 at 1512, YL with weather info, lots of
numbers, in French, VP signal; at 1527 recheck now in English but with
very heavy French accent, S9-S7. // 17825 but on the latter the audio
is somewhat degraded, like ``chuffing``. This is for the special
Mini-Transat La Boulangère yacht race second leg from Gran Canaria to
Martinique. Boulangère means baker, but has nothing to do with baking
and should not be so translated. Why thus named?

17800, Nov 13 at 1506, better now, S9-S6 with French numerical info;
but this time no AM signal on 17825, rather traces of DRM noise.

Until now 17825 had always been heard in AM altho registered as DRM;
and always noticeably weaker than 17800; despite otherwise identical
parameters, 250 kW, 250 degrees, no slews, antenna type 217, and CIRAF
targets 11SE,36S,46NW,81S which convert to: 11SE = eastern Caribbean;
36S = north Atlantic Canary Islands westward; 46NW = north Atlantic
adjacent south of there; and 81S = central north Atlantic devoid of
land, otherwise a never-cited target area for anything.

When really in DRM, the power is presumably cut significantly. Now how
many contestants are listening in DRM rather than AM, or even have
portable DRM receivers aboard??? It`s unclear how much longer this
will continue, but available until November 30, presumably somewhat
beyond arrival of the winner, safely to serve the stragglers (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 6255, Nov 12 at 0708, JBA talk, presumed
Echo of Hope on its current frequency per Aoki/NDXC, already
propagating after 4 pm local somewhat before sunset. Also North Korean
noise jamming can be heard on 6350 and 6600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Nov 12 at 1929 UT, ``La Diferente 97.9 FM y 1120
AM``. 2000 UT ToH legal ID pronounces KETU in English, additional
slogan,``La estación latina de Tulsa, Oclajoma``. Their top-billed FM
is of course a mere 250-watt translator, K250BN with a tiny fraxion of
the 10 kW AM daytime coverage, but where it counts, I suppose, as 1120
CoL is really Catoosa. FCC map pins K250BN near US 169/64 and East
54th St., i.e. on the SE side of Tulsa, yet direxional favoring the
SE, not NW, quite a null at 290 degrees. ``La Diferente`` is a rather
weak slogan claim, if you ask me (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: since I was out at a
Veterans` Day event, could not check UT Tue Nov 12 at 0100 on WRMI
7780; did anyone hear it? Next:
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE
Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, USAF ret., OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15770, Nov 12 at 1822, SMTV via WRMI finally without extra
audio, during Vietnamese? music; had been double-audio whenever
checked on Nov 10 and 11. 6060, Nov 13 at 0043 still only one and
undermodulated at S9+10.

5800, Nov 13 at 0047, JBA carrier again, implying that despite
implementation of new 6060 ex-5800 temporarily, there is now another
weak WRMI transmitter holding the fort on 5800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+, UT Wed Nov 13, WBCQ William Tell Overture so `Allan
and Angela Weiner WorldWide` playback is starting: an oldie opening
with additional guests present, Larry & Jane Will, Tom, et al. (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, Tue Nov 12 at 1814 and 2258 chex, WTWW-1 is on with
SFAW, S9+20 but undermodulated. So much for the Sunday-only 15-18 sked
when website last checked, and heard by Dave Kenny. But 9475 remains
off most of the time, such as at 1636 check Nov 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UZBEKISTAN. 7630, Nov 12 at 1539, JBA carrier with flutter,
presumed clandestine to North Korea Voice of Martyrs, as scheduled
1530-1600 via Tashkent, per Aoki but absent from HFCC. This site is a
favorite for several other such services, bouncing across China (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Nov 13 at 0101 after absurdly off-topic
``Onward Christian Soldiers``, WHRI opening relay of Voice of Vietnam,
in Vietnamese. As Peter W Hansen reported already Nov 8 to the WOR
iog:

``It appears that Vietnam on 7315 WHRI has a new schedule:
0000-0027 English 25 degrees;
0030-0057 Spanish 173 degrees;
0100-0157 Vietnamese 260 degrees
(no break at 0130 went straight through)``
So no longer a chance to hear English again at 0100 on a better beam
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 6060, UT Monday Nov 11 at 0136, something in
Spanish but not // 5040v RHC; yes, it`s RAE Spanish relay via WRMI
with its multi-lingual ID at 0138, despite its M-F only schedule, so I
guess playing back the Friday edition containing the DX program (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, UT Mon Nov 11 at 0140, RHC English is not on yet here,
but 6000 is at Item 1 in Arnie`s `DXers Unlimited`, suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST) see also ARGENTINA [non]

** CUBA. 9640.006, Nov 11 at 1334, RHC S9+10/20 with humbuzz and
slightly off frequency. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9335, Nov 11 at 1327, 1 kHz tone; 1328 Yankee Doodle,
1329 VOA sign-on from ``Washington DC``, JBA for a Cambodian hour via
Tinang, PHILIPPINES (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: since last Sunday
WOR was reported to have aired partially on IRRS, 7290 via Romania,
until 2000, I`m checking this week Nov 10 via UTwente SDR: NO, from
1940 music; 1951 starts `Between the Lines`, which is going to get cut
off after no more than 9 minutes. Obviously there is no point in
trying to predict when bits of WOR will appear on this transmission,
besides the committed full airing Mondays at 1900 (or 1859? from last
week). Otherwise IRRS programming is rather random as on continuous
webcast, much of it undefined on the program schedule. More: below

Confirmed Nov 10 after 2130 on WRMI 7780, poor S4-S7.

Also confirmed UT Monday Nov 11 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, good via
UTwente; had been // 9395 but something else now direct, mentions Xmas
already, so the Countdown 2 Xmas show? Not on sked.

Also confirmed UT Monday Nov 11 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair S9-S6.
Maybe the 9395 // has shifted an hour later? NO, at 0229 the usual
wrong `Son-Power` ID, into Afro/Indo percussive World Music. This is
where R. Tirana should now appear the others days of week, and I hope
WOR can be restored to fill this gap, as our only airing on 9395 and
NNW antenna.

Confirmed UT Monday Nov 11 starting at 0402 on Area 51 webcast; S9-S8
on WBCQ 5129.98 check just in time at 0429.

Also confirmed UT Monday Nov 11 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, S9+20/30! Other
weeks has been very poor to inaudible; you never know how the late MUF
will hold up. Also good audio this time on the webcast.

Confirmed Monday Nov 11 joined-in-progress (JIP) at 1900.5 on IRRS
7290 via ROMANIA, as I am going from Alaska to Argentina, which
happens at 1.6 minutes into the program, so as I calculated last week,
this playback is starting a bit before 1859! Trouble is, 7290
transmission does not bring it up that early, altho the carrier came
on at *1857.5 as heard via UTwente SDR, almost muscling aside the ACI
from CRI if bandwidth be narrowed. There was no modulation before WOR
JIP, no Triumphal March from Aïda, no sign-on, no ID. WOR was planned
to start at 1902 after some news, or maybe 1901.5 matching the
sesquiminute offset when official start was 1815. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. (7490), Sun Nov 10 after 2300, I`m ready for `Uncle Bill`s
Melting Pot` on WBCQ webcast --- it`s running, but silent. I don`t
check 7490 itself, assuming it too be missing. Better luck if for the
third week he gets a filler repeat 25 hours later, UT Tue at 0000. But
the webcast comes to life at 2355 with IS & ID loop; 0000 UT Monday
Nov 11 into: `Radio TImTron Worldwide`! But that`s the show scheduled
on Area 51 and its webcast. He says the date is Nov 10 [belch], so
it`s a different one than yesterday at the same time; mostly music.

Then I compare the 7490 and 5130 webcasts, and find they are *both*
with TT, but a good many seconds apart. Somehow A51 stream has got
onto the 7490 stream! So we are also missing `Le Show`; at 0014 I
check 7490 itself and find it *is* running there as usual, as UBMP
probably did an hour earlier without the webcast backup.

At 0141 I check again for `Encore` classical music which now starts a
UT hour later at 0100 Monday, but the webcast is still from A51.
Encore *is* playing on 7490.072v, fair S9/+10 at first but fading down
by 0152 final announcement which I can`t copy. Brice always wraps up
early allowing last piece to ``play out``, but it`s likely to be cut
off when the hour be up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6060, Nov 11 at 0015, SMTV on WRMI is *still* double-audio
feed 4 seconds apart; no RHC back on 6060 yet. And *still* Nov 11 at
about 1320 when the frequency is 7570; citing animal attributes
alfabetically, koalas, llamas, lobsters, mice ---.

15770, Nov 11 at 1833, SMTV via WRMI *still* with two programs mixing
at once, but I can no longer match them 4, or any, seconds apart
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6115, Nov 11 at 0141, WWCR-1 with far-right talk, S9+30 with
squeal as always on this transmitter. Too bad they don`t put all that
signal to better use (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Monday Nov 11 at 1839, zero signal from KVOH leaving
absolutely nothing on 16m except the unIDs on 17783.78 and 17850,
qq.vv. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, November 11 at
1259-1308 UT as I am awake around local sunrise, 1305: 774-NW,
702-WSW, 612-WSW, 747-NW, 828-NW, 882-WSW, 972-NW, 1242-NW,
1503-both?, 1566-NW --- i.e. the usual suspects from Au/NZ and
Japan/Korea S. Most of these were at the very margin of inaudibility
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4102+, Nov 11 at 1310, JBA ``W`` and other Morse CW
letters or number, from that Weather beacon somewhere in the desert
SW. Still no sign of ``A`` beacon on 2097.3 which used to come in
stronger every dekasecond (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17783.78-USB approx., Mon Nov 11 at 1838, weak 2-way in
Spanish, ``cambio``, INTRUDERS but no problem from or to 17775 KVOH,
since it`s absent again. Surely not still Simi-fiery around there?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17850, Nov 11 at 1840, JBA carrier, presumed 3 x 5950
WRMI harmonic; with sporadic E boost since WRMI Radio Africa 21525 is
steady S9+10 with gospel huxter in English; rather than usual JBA
carrier or not at all on 13m. Since KVOH is AWOL, 17850 is the OSOB
and SSOB! Discounting the USB intruders on 17783.78 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 9630-9650, Nov 9 at 2301, RHC ID amid its 22-24 UT Spanish
newsmagazine, buzzfield over this range surrounding and out of 9640.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, Nov 10 at 0733, only RHC left, Spanish song but
presumably English service; so what will become of Esperanto now
rescheduled to 0800 UT Sundays on one 49mb frequency? Unfortunately, I
am still awake at 0801, when 6165 and all others are off. Something`s
always wrong at RHC.

However, wide-awake in Germany, Wolfgang Bueschel also monitored:
``Something's always wrong at RHC, on Sunday Nov 10th. In 0750-0800 UT
slot only a single RHC English transmission noted on 6165even, not
6000 6060, nor 6100 kHz outlet on air - 0750 UT S=9+10dB in remote SDR
at Edmonton, Alb-CAN. 6165 kHz was on duty til 0800:10 final piano
music theme, 0800:56 UT Bauta TX OFF switch.

When traced the 49 mb then, noted a short appearance on air, and an
empty carrier on 6100even little stronger S=9+20dB - than 6165,
seemingly RHC Bauta as empty carrier on air at single minute duration,
the technician at Bauta were real 0801:42 to 0802.43 ON AIR
on 6100 kHz in 49 mb positively; BOT NOT ON AIR RHC Bauta in Esperanto
special - nothing today on a single fq 6100 kHz``

Note: gh has removed redundant ``kHz`` after every frequency and
``UT`` after every time, just as wb inserts them into my reports to
make them explicit yet redundant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** IRELAND. 4651-USB, Nov 10 at 0718, Shanwick Radio with notice to
some flight about severe turbulence; some CODAR swish QRM. This is a
long-standing joint venture with Prestwick AP, Scotland near Glasgow,
the one scandalized by connexions with Trump`s failing golf course.
EiBi shows the transmitter site is Shannon (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Nov 10 at 0740, RNZI the SSOB and virtually the
OSOB during Sunday evening classic rock show, playing `Nights in White
Satin` by Moody Blues, with `I Love You`` refrain over and over, a
great tune keeping me awake a little longer; DJ announcement, and
0745, I don`t know, another love-song from `J.C. Super-Star` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, Sunday Nov 10 at 1414, finally a pirate
outside early evening prime-time. Hard rock music with screams at
S7-S8. 1418 DJ ID as ``Energy Radio, ERG``, offers QSL cards; fragment
of song with intelligible lyric, ``You`re gonna die``; 1419 a bit of
the screamsong again and cutoff 1420*. More detailed logs here:

** OKLAHOMA. 930, Nov 10 at 1329 UT, WKY, OKC, with double audio!
Closing pubaffs show `Sunday Morning Magazine` about elexions in OK,

Animal which is its normal programming source. No one paying attention
at station to suppress TSA at least during this breakaway! (Glenn

** OKLAHOMA. RF 13, Nov 10 at 0128 UT, closing credits of excellent
OETA program `Gallery` flash ``Copywrite XXXX``, too quick to catch
the year let alone tape or photo it, but I am sure of how the Oklahoma
*Educational* TV Authority spelt Copyright. N.B., Sagebrush Bob! There

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5850, Nov 10 at 0722, Brother Scare via WRMI
remarking that He is ``confined to the house``, but is allowed to talk
on the radio and is wearing a wireless mike so He can walk around. Not
the first time I have run across this. So is He ``confined`` as in
house-arrest, maybe with an ankle monitor to keep Him away from the
girls? Or confined due to disability? Allan Weiner must know, having
visited Him recently. There has got to be a public document about His
legal status somewhere, if anyone could uncover it (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 6150, Nov 9 at 2241, S4-S8 news magazine in American
English, mentions Bloomberg, dangers of robots taking over jobs even
in the Press, 2244 another topic; 2254 about the Theremin. What`s
this, CRI? Before hourtop, Marco Werman closing `The World` joint
produxion of WBUR, PRI, and BBCWS, and indeed this is BBCWS on a
previously unknown transmission, from where? Unusual to get a readable
signal from them since they blew away their intentional North American
SW audience years ago. HFCC shows it is via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES!
I would never have guessed this were the site. 250 kW at 200 degrees
away from here for CIRAF 51W and 54, i.e. Indonesia and Malaysia, at
2200-2300 only. Something new? There is one more English hour at
2300-2400 on 11825 and three other Tinang relays in Burmese, Korean.

We get `The World` on KOSU M-F at 20-21 UT; also heard it on CBW 990
in the 06-07 hour. I once tried to convince WRMI to pick it up in
penance for all crap from Walterboro paying the bills. But we`ll have
to do with BBCWS.

When all is it scheduled there? I`ve avoided trying to pin down any
programming on BBCWS since there have been so many different SW
streams, zero for us. But I try, for Monday Nov 11 -- no such program
in the 22-23 hour or anywhen by that title! The specific time I heard
it, does lead to `Boston Calling` with the robot topic for Nov 9, so
that`s how it`s repackaged on BBCWS:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csy5vb
Clearly it`s only once a week for 27 minutes at 2232 UT Saturdays, one
earlier airing at 0432, and repeated at 0432 UT Sunday. Despite its
original title, BBCWS diminishes it as an American POV de Boston.

But there are a lot of clips, podcasts, a look at Marco and his bio:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00y7fqz
So the entire hour 5X a week would still be needed via WRMI (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7457-USB, Nov 10 at 1427, AF MARS net, two stations saying
``no traffic; net is now free; out``. Does free mean open for random
QSOs, or finished? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9619.9 approx., Nov 9 at 2256, het with weaker 9620.0,
one at least in Chinese; 2300 timesignal and one goes off, the other
by 2301*. VOA Chinese via Tinang, PHILIPPINES scheduled in the 22 hour
only, so the CNR1 jammer presumably a bit off-frequency to boot (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7545, Nov 10 at 1424, non-Standard Chinese translating brief
items in English mentioning Baltic States, Gorbachov, atop weaker
audio, i.e. VOA Cantonese via Tinang, PHILIPPINES and jammed at
1300-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday November
11 at 0426, 11 minutes into on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, so started circa
nominal 0415. Readable but marred by local high noise level between
1.7 and 2.4 MHz, and another narrow peak at 2.68 MHz, but fortunately
no problem higher. (I dread the Holiday Season with Xmas lighting all
over, altho 2 or 3 neighbors run Xmassy lighting yearound.) Next:

** U S A. 5950, Nov 10 at 0727, SMTV via WRMI, and 4 seconds later the
same SMTV via WRMI, i.e. double audio feed, one of them slightly
softer than the other, ruining their own programming, partly in
English.

15770, Nov 10 at 1431 & 1548 chex, SMTV now on this WRMI, *still* with
double audio. Clearly nohuman at SMTV HQ nor WRMI is paying attention
to what is going out, so why should we? I wonder how this happen, Bob?

** U S A. 3215, Nov 9 at 2312, WWRB is already on this early for
Saturday evening, S9+20 and OK modulation! with what else, a gospel
huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday Nov 10, I`ve had WTWW-2 on a receiver in the
background for an hour or more of hamtalk, when finally at 0119 I
first detect some organ music, so `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` has
started after 7 pm local, not 8 pm as on the website. I bring up
$ tereo webcast of familiar tunes, finally `White Xmas`, abruptly
ending at 0143, no show outro, cut to ID and immediately back to rock
music, `The Wanderer`, which would have been neat to hear on the organ
too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 720, Nov 10 at 1335 UT, TexMexmx, break for super-hype voice
actor to proclaim, ``--- 104.1 y 720 AM, la estación de la raza``.
Null/separable from WGN, but soon outfading, is KSAH Universal City
(San Antonio) TX. NRC AM Log says the slogan is ``Norteña 104.1``
which is not a mere translator (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Sunday Nov 10 at 1339 UT, surprised to hear the tones
of Jim Bohannon in the light of day, guest author who is a
``Bible-believing Christian``. This is certainly my semi-local KQAM
Wichita KS, atop remnant of Vietnamese KNGO The Metroplex making a
slow SAH. But KQAM is not a JIMBO affiliate per:
http://www.jimbohannonshow.com/station-finder/
rather 3 other 1480s all at normal nighttimes or later repeats
pre-sunrise. But what do they know? Jimbo is among the Big Talkers at:
http://stecklinecommunications.com/kqam/
Sundays at 12-14 UT; and weeknights live at 03-06 UT (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, Nov 10 at 1352 UT, ``Cape Radio 100.3 News-Talk``,
1359 local PSAs for Cape Girardeau, caperadionews.com; rapid legal ID
I think fits in a 1550 mention, 1400 Fox ``news``. Is KAPE now on 5 kW
direxional day power. Lucky MO has two others 1550s. From ENE, I`m
really trying to null it and hear wanted KMAD, Madill on the south
side of OK, often silent but lately reported active (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Date for this omitted by mistake: it was November 4:
TA conditions must be VG, as earlier Mark Connelly in MA
reported Syria ``inbooming`` (where did he get that?) on 783 kHz. Too
late for that now, but at 0550-0600 I decide to perform a JBA MW
carrier search on the R-75 with E/W longwire, and find plenty of them:
531, 549, 558(2), 567, 585(2), 595.9, 621, 639, 684, 693(2), 711, 729,
738, 747, 756, 774(2: See SPAIN), 801, 837, 882, 909, 936(2), 954, 963
(both sides of my 960 local), 999, 1053, 1062, 1089, 1125(2), 1134,
1215, 1305, 1566 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1110, Nov 10 at 0753 UT, KFAB Omaha in C2CAM normally
owns this clear channel at night, but now has some musical QRM with
SAH, hard to DF with KFAB nulled. Of course, the only other 50 kW at
night 1110 station is WBT Charlotte NC, but it`s news/talk too; with
deep nulls toward each other. Suspect it`s one of the numerous
daytimers in between running at night. Or maybe KRDC Pasadena CA, all
20 kW supposedly WSW into the Pacific but C&W/Disney format (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6780-CW, Nov 10 at 1410, beeps like timesignals exactly
one second apart, except a prolonged one every 23 seconds, pause and
resuming 4 seconds later, over and over; not matching any real
timesignal. Very strange (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7850-USB, Nov 10 at 1422, VP 2-way in Spanish. CHU

** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, Fri Nov 8 at 2030, WRMI with world music
fill, still no Radio Tirana relay; it`s Greekish, close enough?

9395, UT Sat Nov 9 at 0230, JBA music too, maybe Greekish and no RT. I
neglected to mention the expected frequency for this in last report
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7335, 7355, 7365, 7375, 6125, Nov 9 at 0657, all
with varying degrees of jamming against nothing, as now Radio Martí is
only on 7435 way atop jamming, 6030 & 5980? under jamming. Something`s
always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command, wasting its own
resources and causing untold harm to innocent bystations, who had
better avoid any frequency used anywhen by RM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA:WOR:WRMI

** CUBA. Correxion: I wrote that ``6165 continues`` while I meant to
say 6100 continues, after 6165 quits; fixed:

6165, Nov 8 at 0750 tune-in, just in time to hear modulation cut off
to dead air at S9+10; but 6100 continues S9+20/30 into `From the
Bookshelf`. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, 6100, 6000, Nov 9 at 0702, all three RHC English are
still on with good modulation, but unlikely all will last another full
hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 9 at 1603, S9+20 of dead air, no hurry to turn off
after 1400-1600 CRI English relay, yet unknown how well modulated
today. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Nov 9 at 1605, RHC Spanish still on here, S9/+10,
unknown for how much longer but better than // 15140 only S9 and
undermodulated. Both 13s are off, but 11760 is also still on at S9+10.
Something`s always wrong? at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTTENING
DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1090, Nov 9 at 0553 UT, I finally tune in before local
midnight, Spanish with KAAY from right angle easily nulled, making a
slow SAH of exactly 1.0 Hz, advice on how to accomplish e-commerce;
0556 into choral multi-verse NA; 0600 a quick ID which dammit I cannot
copy, but seems to mention FM, presumably linked to this XEAU
Monterrey; mentions milenio.com, and into infomercial for lentes de
leer (reading glasses). Now there is a UK TA het QRMing from 1089,
which I can`t null as long as I do null KAAY.

IRCA Mexican log says of XEAU: ``5000/500 watts, FM Tu 103.7 [Zona
Urbana], 1200-0600 REG ORO //XHFMTU 103.7FM. Moved to FM? (Web stream
ID is FM only, but AM is still included in 6/19 IFT list)`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6929-USB, Nov 8 at 2305, S6-S8, finally a pirate
heard after not any since Oct 22; just in time for the FRW deadline:
novelty tune, 2306 DJ announcement, hard to understand, drunk?
something about a ``continuing problem, RF in there``, apologizes for
poor quality. Lots of background noise while talking, but the music
was OK. 2312 fades down markedly to S3-S4, music JBA; still at 2329
recheck, music S5-S6.

These say it was Argyle Radio; all reports from the north/east, even
England, but I doubt this was out of Scotland:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,60026.0.html
(During this semihour one might instead have been listening to the
first airing of WORLD OF RADIO 2007 on WRMI 9955; started out heavily
jammed, but then it quit and WRMI faded up.)
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 6170-6175-6180, Nov 9 at 0700, DRM noise, which at
0700-0730 only is RRI in German, 90 kW, 307 degrees from Ziganeschti;
coincidentally? 6175 is also in DRM later testing? from RFI FRANCE at
0900-1200 per HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, Friday Nov 8 at 2300 on WRMI 9955; tune-in at 2258 to hear
wall-of-noise jamming over WRMI! The Cuban jammers have not observed
the EST switch of gusano programming like everything else on 9955 to
one real hour later. The main time they *need* to jam it is now
0015-0100 UT Tue-Sat against Noticiero and Radio Libertad! However,
S/N ratio soon improves as WRMI fades up a bit just as I am talking
about RHC -- tnx a lot! By 2312 recheck, WRMI is S9+20 and the jamming
is off, amazing, as if they realized their mistake. WOR remains VG
complete to 2329 and not cut off making my ``standard disclaimer``
twice redundant.

Also confirmed UT Saturday November 9 at 0140 the 0130 on WRMIs 5850
VG >> weak 5010, but JBA carrier here on 7780. At 0150 I check UTwente
SDR where 7780 is still arriving well!

As usual, I sleep/forget past 1330 for the secret new 1300 Saturday
WOR airing on WRMI 15770, which would probably be JBA here; hope
someone can reconfirm it.

Hamburger Lokalradio has been off due to serious illness of Michael
Kittner, but it could come back without notice, so need to keep
checking. Sat Nov 9 before 1600, UTwente is not getting it on
9485-CUSB, but usually did not get it anyway when really operational.

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat Nov 9 I don`t remember to check AAAWWW until
about 0153 UT on WBCQ webcast, now outgoing a real hour later by EST,
0100+ UT, when music is playing so I know immediately that A&A must be
away again. Yes, soon hear the tones of TimTron with his *very*
different style of programming; reminiscing about the good ole days,
and soon joined by Jason. They mention that one other frequency is on
now experimentally, 6160, reports wanted, and he will leave it on a
few minutes more, but only a few due to electrical expenses in Maine.
I quickly check it at 0202, but all I get is a JBA carrier on 6161,
suspect something else like a local birdie. Fortunately, John Carver
heard the whole thing this week:

``Tonight's AAWWW --- Program started on time this evening on 7490
although a very poor signal. I checked 7490 a couple of hours earlier
and it was a much better signal. TimTron is hosting. Goes into music
immediately as he says nothing is right in the studio and he has to
fix it. When the music ends Jason slips into the studio to cohost with
Tim. Tim announced that they were also on 6160 and I immediately tune
there. Much better signal. Then Tim talks about the work he did on the
6160 transmitter. Jason mentions that the 7490 transmitter had gone
down today for a bit so Tim talks about getting that back on the air
and how he hopes it keeps going till after he leaves for home.

He also mentioned that the superstation transmitter was down again and
that Allan had insisted on Tim going to the station to get it going.
Tim was upset as he wasn't finished winterizing his home and he wanted
to go back and work on it instead. Said that when he got home he'd
have to chip ice off of things to work on them. He also said it had
snowed today at the station.

More clips and music and then Tim talking about his introduction to
and experience with computers. He mentioned that the transmitter
problem with the superstation will require a man from the transmitter
company [Continental] and him to tear it all apart and he's upset
about that as it's still under warranty. He's waiting there for the
other guy to show up and says the guy should be there sometime this
next week. Some more bits and music from Michael Ketter. Program was
off the air at 0159. John Mid-North Indiana``

Note that Tim`s home is far away in Skowhegan, central Maine, 140 air
miles away, 183 driving miles from Monticello. He also mentioned that
he used to bunk-in Monticello for a week or more at a time. As for the
superstation, at end of WOR 2007 I cite the latest imaginary 24-hour
schedule for it, all on 9330 with times, languages, azimuths, targets,
powers -- some halved to only 250 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 6060, Nov 8 at 2303, WRMI with SMTV, and no RHC; will they
dare to turn 6060 back on as long as WRMI be there? Not checked later
until -0200 WRMI/RAE span (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Nov 9 at 0453, WTWW-1 is on, S9+10/20 undermodulated
SFAW, weaker than neighbor 5935 WWCR PMS at +20/30. Dave Kenny points
out that the WTWW website now displays a much-abbreviated schedule: 8
pm-12 am Central on 5830 (= 0200-0600 UT), and only three hours a week
on 9475: Sunday 9 am-12 pm Central (=1500-1800 UT, i.e., church-goin`
hours; to be confirmed?) That would explain why we never hear 9475
anymore nor 5830 earlier or later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 7505, Nov 9 at 0459-0500+, WRNO active with gospel huxtress
in English, S9/+20, a bit past 0500 but probably about to cut off the
0200-0500 remaining broadcast with no more Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sat Nov 9 at 1601, KVOH is S9+10/20, the SSOB by far
and would be the OSOB if not for 17830 JBA carrier from Ascension.
Suspect an HF sporadic E boost. Should have checked right away, but at
1830 the DXMap does show a lot of HF Es altho mostly over eastern USA.
1601:15 opening `Wavescan` edition #559 for Nov 10 but gets a
headstart on its sole KVOH airing. There are 28 more each week, mostly
on WRMI per new DX/SWL/Media Programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 12160, Sat Nov 9 at 1609, WWCR with old lo-fi music ending
with a wow; could it be Talking Machine Show? That`s not until two
hours later. Not solid signal, not getting any sporadic E help over
this path. Soon gospel huxter starts talking off-mike and can`t copy
details, but he spends a lot of time listing numerous affiliates, such
as 1000 and 1240 in Kentucky, KXEL 1540, at one-hour times mostly on
Sundays, and finally WWCR at 10 am Saturdays on 12.160, and two other
times which strike me as incorrect. Own churches are in Philadelphia,
Washington DC and western Kentucky. Finally at 1614 mentions full name
of ministry, ``Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of Apostolic Faith,
Inc.`` matching that in WWCR schedule, and introducing another
speaker, some late bishop who starts off singing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 1210, Nov 9 at 0705 UT, ad for texting RANK to some number,
and another ad for something in northern Michigan, Petoskey. So it`s
certainly 50-kW ND daytimer cheating again, WJNL, Kingsley near
Traverse City. I`ve often checked for this but there has been too much
KGYN even nulled. Now I`m not even trying to do that, on the east-west
longwire which should favor KGYN. Its own adherence to legally nulling
toward Philadelphia at night is questionable, but maybe now they
really are (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
