Hauser
** BRAZIL. 6180 & 11780, March 28 at 0620 check, RNA/RNB still absent for the eighth night in a row. There does not seem to be an uproar in Brasil over the vanishing of its greatest SW station by far. Maybe because it`s controlled by a discredited government (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 13740, March 28 at 1400, S9+30 of dead air, 1401:44 brings up CRI English modulation in progress, typical slipshod Cuban operation; for A-17 this is ex-15700, at 1400-1600 but sounds just like it with some hum and less than full modulation. CRI relays are the only HABana registrations allowed in HFCC. No change in the other CRI relays via CUBA.

Why move down one band for summer? Perhaps some MUF predixion calls for that with ever-declining solar activity, despite higher solar angle over full-day paths. Let`s look at the table of Most Suitable Frequencies on page 45 of the 2017 WRTH, no longer compiled by George Jacobs:

From transmitter in Eastern North America to North America (East), March-April 2017, at 11-15 UT: 13 MHz band. To NAm (West) at 12-16 UT: also 13. For May to August, 13 and 11 MHz respectively. Of course there is a margin of error of plus or minus one band. Similar figures for transmitter in Central/South America, but I think that`s less appropriate for Cuba on this table (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, March 27 at 2120 jamming here but no Radio MartÃ; at least they have found the frequency, and no longer jamming ex-13820. 9565 has wall-of-noise jamming over RM, much like 9955 Radio Libertad via WRMI. 11930 bears R. Martà at VG S9+20 level, no jamming audible, a Cuban interviewing a Castilian about Venezuela. Between 20 and 24 UT, the two RM frequencies scheduled are in fact 9565 and 11930, so the DentroCuban Jamming Command is still out of synch (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 11705, March 27 at 1427, NHK English relay via PALAU is good at S9-S7 way offbeam over here, wrapping up, and should be usable from 1400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, March 27 at 2115, REE to NAm is a JBA carrier, weaker than 15520 beamed elsewhere. Using remotes, Wolfgang BÃschel agrees that 15520 is best in eastern NAm at 2145, also 17715 JBA (but 15390 off?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1870 monitoring: confirmed Monday March 27 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB, poor. Also confirmed UT Tuesday March 28 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, S9+10 but undermodulated compared to e.g. 7570 at S9+20. I`m awake Tuesday March 28 at 1100 so check 9955, but can`t confirm on a JBA carrier; by 1127 a trace of audio, probably me. Meanwhile 6855 is playing music at S9+10 but not // 5950. Next:
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, UT Tue Mar 28 at 0059, I`m checking this WRMI for which Yahwuh gospel huxter has been showing up at 0100; playing Oldie ``Walk Right In``, quick ID, at 0101 back to more music. I guess he`s not daily and/or the 9395 scheduling is still in flux (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 11825, March 28 at 1429, JBA carrier rather than WRMIBS, which must be off, since 11580 on a less favorable 44-degree beam is S9 with Spanish song. For A17, 11825 registration at 355 degrees has been expanded to 13-03 UT, but WRMI skedgrid still stops it at 2400.

The JBA 11825 carrier I have now must be Iran in Bengali, per HFCC, 1420-1520, 500 kW due east from Sirjan. Other colliders: 1300-1330 FEBC Philippines in Khg (Kyrgyz?); 1620-1650 Iran in more Bengali from Kamalabad, but must be wooden from silent site; and 1700-1800 CRI in Croatian from Beijing site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1623 UT March 28

Hauser
** BRAZIL [non]. 6180 & 11780, March 27 at 0122, no signals from RNA/RNB for the seventh night in a row. Still awaiting any explanation from ZY DXers or officials at EBC.

6180, March 27 at 0417, VP signal in unID language talk, but HFCC shows it`s now RRI in Romanian, 04-05, 300 kW, 285 degrees from Galbeni to France. Other 6180 occupants at night, while not blocked by BrasÃlia: 00-02, CRI English via Kashgar; 0530-0630 M-F, VOA French via SÃo TomÃ. 0600-0630 10 kW Deutscher Wetterdienst. (Lotsa luck finding DWD in WRTH 2017, not international section with other SW stations, maybe buried somewhere in domestic section amongst all the FM info state-by-state?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6170.19, March 27 at 0418, as I am tuning down, I don`t have to go all the way to 6165.0 to hear Arnie in English on RHC. Here he is readable on an intermittent spur, gone at 0420, back at 0421. Fortunately do not hear a match on the low side, CKZN still in clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CZECHIA [non]. 9955, Monday March 27 at 1202, R. Prague via WRMI is VG at S9+10, no jamming, with classical guitar music! Starved for such on SW, I can`t tune away. Also on VP // 6855. It`s about LubomÃr Brabec, with extended clips of his performances, both solo and with other instruments, but pieces never named; he`s 63 but not retiring, also mountain-climber in spare time. This lasts until 1229 abrupt cut to a Bruce Baskind promo for WRMI sports coverage ``this fall`` (??), 1230 on to Eslovaquia en espaÃol (too bad they switched from English, as that had put Czecho-Slovakia back together). It`s here, with audio:
http://radio.cz/en/section/sunday-music-show/czech-guitar-virtuoso-lubomir-brabec-captivates-audiences-worldwide
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 6105, March 27 at 0431, NHK in excited Japanese with drumming; demonstration, or game? This is ex-5960, at 0300-0500, 500 kW, 290 degrees from FRANCE to Mexico, Central America and Caribbean, close enough for us, but shhh! Don`t tell anyone since Radio Japan deleted North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR [and non]. 11825, March 27 at 0435, very poor signal, but make out an ``11-825 MHz`` announcement in English, from MWV, which has stayed here in the A-17 season. Too bad they haven`t reverted to 9480 as in A-16 which was a good reliable signal here for African Pathways Radio (but the two repeats at 18 & 20 on 17640 remain amazingly reliable here far beyond). At 0435, the ONLY other signals on 25m are the equally weak Brazilians; but after 0500, 11725 RNZI is on and good (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6875.99-AM, March 27 at 0124 tune-in, dialog including ``dipshit doesn`t like my politix?`` Then to canned robotic YL ID as ``TCS shortwave at gmail.com`` a few times, S9+10 but fighting local noise level circa S9. Many more logs here of The Crystal Ship, starting as 6875.8:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,33716.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.88-AM, March 27 at 0109, all I hear is a heavy beat presumably from some rock music on a weak signal. What`s reported at HFU?
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,33722.0.html

Mark Taylor, WI says: ``6925.44 Gospel Radio Shortwave, 0053, 3.27.17. Listening in USB to avoid peskies on 6925.0 LSB. Barely audible music with clear ID at 0058. Somewhat better signal about 0110 with contemporary Christian music. Hard to separate from presumed Liquid Radio on 6925.0, occasional peskies on 6925.0 LSB and occasional ute on 6925.0 USB. Overall a challenge to hear.`` And shortly he adds:

``Liquid Radio, 6925.0, 0115, 3.27.17. Hearing the thump, thump and some music which seems like contemporary dance music, a pause with possible ID at one point. Not sure. Barely audible. Just below Gospel Radio Shortwave on 6925.44. Pretty sure it's Liquid Radio now ...`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7614.99-AM, March 27 at 0413, Station YHWH with same old screeds, but better than usual at S9+25, completely readable at R5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, March 27 at 0100, JBA carrier from R. Chaski until autocutoff at 0103:44.5*, which is 20.5 seconds later than 3 nights ago, March 24 until 0103:24*, averaging 6.8+ seconds later per. The slippage is so reliable around 6.7 seconds, and I really can`t measure it to tenths of a second, just estimate to half-seconds on my digital watch, always compared to WWV in the next minute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, March 26 at 2148, no signal from REE on reactivated A-17 frequency for NAm. Should have checked earlier from *1400 on weekends, but if still on until 2200*, not propagating at all today. For elsewhere, new 15520 ex-15500 is VP audible, and 15390 is a JBA carrier. Should have checked 17715, fourth frequency, in case 17855 was just off, but from 19m propagation, doubtful to hear it on 16. 17855 should be VG normally from *1800 on weekdays, but subject to fade-out before sign-off. If there can be only one frequency for a 4- or 8-hour span, it might be more prudent to employ 15 or even 13 MHz band in this case; or if two, 17 in our mornings, 15 afternoons (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, March 27 at 0112, SLBC carrier is already on, earlier than last A-season, but not even a few minutes earlier as now registered from 0000 to 0300, 125 kW, 345 degrees in Hindi from Trincomalee. S5 with Doppler flutter. PrÃlude music audible from 0114:48.5 or so, and yay, for the first time this year, I am able to clearly catch the mis-timesignal, 2 plus 1 pips, ending at 0115:06. Last year it was typically 17 or 18 seconds past, so getting closer, but we`ll see how much it still vary. That accomplished, then I refine the frequency measurement to 11904.99 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAJIKISTAN [and non]. 9350, March 27 at 0121, JBA carrier, or more like two of them. HFCC shows IBB in Uighur, 01-02, 200 kW, 60 degrees from Dushanbe; i.e. Radio Free Asia and/or ChiCom jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 26 at 2200, checking perpetual A-season frequency for VOT English to N America, nothing! But cuts on late at *2201:23.5, not with opening newscast but music on 9830.028, typical offset-plus from Emirler. Guess what, AGAIN hit by RTTY which has never encouraged VOT to get off this frequency. The RTTY is dead-on, so tuning LSB vs USB does not diminish it. Music indicates they must have the wrong program feed plugged in, to boot.

9770, March 27 at 0110, music on poor signal; checking for VOT Spanish as now scheduled which was also having transmitter problems yesterday. Now seems to be // 9870, but when I go back to 9770 at 0111, it`s off! Still problematic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1870 monitoring: confirmed Sunday March 26 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.93v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Monday March 27 starting late at 0304 on Area 51 webcast, also audible on WBCQ 5129.8 at 0327. Next repeat at 0330 on WRMI 9955 is only a JBA carrier, but confirmed on webcast. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, March 27 at 0112, the ``Yahwuh`` gospel huxter again on this WRMI, not Biermann nor // Brother Scare. Will have to catch an open or close to ID the program as no schedule is published for this frequency other than `Oldies`` allegedly 24/7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5850 // 7730, Monday March 27 at 0606, WRMI with a discussion in an echoey venue, and everybody is off-mike! Like someone in the audience recorded it, not intended for professional broadcast. Despite very strong signals, S9+40 on 7730, but usually stronger 5850 fading a bit, it`s mostly unreadable, even adjusting passband for best audio; someone about visiting Thailand; ``I was a Santa Claus at a party``. I give up at 0610. O, it`s the new `Teachers Corner` about EFL as now scheduled this hour and a few other times as I previously pulled from WRMI website. Well, someone needs to teach them how to produce a radio broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 730, March 27 at 0446 UT, unusual to hear something in English rather than Korean or Spanish on 730; talk show with weird subject, guest mentions Archimedes, radio-telemetry, Noah`s Ark, higher dimensions, harmonic transmitters (? I could use some of those!). Looking for // I finally find one on 1170 KFAQ which is running 30 seconds ahead of 730. No SS CCI until something fades up at 0454 UT, and talkshow is C2CAM with George Noory, guest David Sereda, 0457 UT wrapup, apparent music fill, but no ID in QRM by 0500 UT. (Sereda had been a wacko guest numerous times, but not scheduled for 3/26; an old rerun, I suppose.)

My first guess is KDAZ Albuquerque, but not on the C2C affiliate list, just 1600 there. C2CAM website, and NRC AM Log show the *only* 730 affil is: WWTK Lake Placid FL, address in Sebring, which is U4 500/340 watts. Day and night patterns are NNW/SSE, not favorable for here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, March 27 at 1330, Rep. of Yemen Radio (via SAUDI ARABIA?) is fair S7-S9, enough to enjoy some of its music thanks to the civil war (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1550, March 27 at 0441 UT, Spanish, child`s voice, mentions ``mexicana``, peppy music. Having realized nothing logged on 1550 recently, I am paying more attention to it. There are four Mexicans listed, closest being XENU in Nuevo Laredo but only 250 watts night. Have none of those migrated to FM yet? Could be Unitedstatesian, two in FL, two in CA and one in GA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** AUSTRALIA. 9720, March 26 at 1325, gospel huxtress in English, outro plugging http://samanthalandy.com and a P O Box in St George UT. Nothing on her homepage about radio broadcasts, but this is now Reach Beyond, per HFCC, A-17 in English at 1300-1435, 100 kW, 305 degrees from KNX; evidently replacing the 1400-1435 on 11980 which is no longer listed, but until yesterday put a good signal into here. Will there still be a tune-up medley at 1400-1405, or now at 1300-1305? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. 9580, March 26 at 1305 check and later, no signal from WRMI as now HFCC-registered at 09-21 UT; nor does it show on the WRMI grid, now dated effective March 26, with 6855 still running 24 hours. Without any explanation from Jeff, we assume the 9580 entry is to block some other station from taking over Radio Australia`s legacy frequency, or we hope, the possibility that WRMI might eventually start a relay of RA, which we suggested as soon as RA self-destructed at the end of January. Watch that space. See also USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, March 26 at 1315, Radio Martà is VG S9+20 with no jamming audible, while the wall of noise remains on 13820. It`s the same old pattern for RM: 13605 in A-seasons, 13820 in B-seasons, but the DentroCuban Jamming Command never anticipates this, but will likely glom on to 13605 before too much longer. Also at 1332 March 26, jamming is still on 7435, while RM is now on 7405. At 1432, both RM and jamming are on 11930.

HFCC A-17 shows this schedule for IBB in Spanish from Greenville B, i.e. Radio MartÃ:
00-12 6030, 12-14 7405, 14-24 11930
00-03 7365, 03-05 7435, 05-07 7365, 07-10 5980, 10-13 9805,
13-20 13605, 20-24 9565 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 12005, March 26 at 1319, song at S7. This is now Radio Farda, 300 kW due east from Woofferton UK at 13-18 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 11705, March 26 at 1317, NHK World is VG in Indonesian. HFCC shows it`s 100 kW due west from PALAU at 1315-1400. But here we are far to the northeast. Should be just as good for the 1400-1430 English broadcast on same parameters, unchecked yet (while // 11935 Tashkent is NG for us.) BTW, HFCC has triplicate 11705 registrations for both, one each by FCC, BaBcoCk, and NHK itself. That should cover it! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAKISTAN [and non]. 9835, March 26 at 1324, music presumably from MALAYSIA, but there is a second weak signal QRMing underneath. Could it be R. Pakistan? If we were to believe A-17 HFCC, it`s ONLY PAK on 9835 at 1045-1330 in Hindi, Gujrati, Sinhala and Tamil, as Malaysia doesn`t bother to register its frequencies, despite KL hosting a future HFCC meeting! At least they have some SW on the air, unlike Jordan for the latest HFCC. But our best info is that PBC does not have any usable active SW transmitters, altho they are supposedly trying to get them going, proudly displaying a full imaginary A-17 schedule on website as well as in HFCC. At 1540 UT March 26, longtime R. Pakistan monitor Noel Green in England says, ``And re PAK - there is no trace of them on air today as was to be expected`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 12035, March 26 at 1320, weak talk around S3. Now registered is IBB in Pashto via THAILAND, 250 kW, 305 degrees from Udorn at 13-15; no more Turkey in English, presumably the JBA carrier on 15450 now ending circa 1320.

12045, March 26 at 1320, VOA Korean weak, and still at 1433, with no ACI from WEWN 12050 which hasn`t built up to daytime blasting yet. VOA here is 250 kW, 333 degrees from TINIAN at 1300-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, Sunday March 26 at 1305, WRMI-5 is still on with Japanese-accented Mississippian Mieko Namihira `Living the Bible`, and // 9955. A-17 HFCC has an alternative registration to 6855 for the 09-21 UT span, on 9580, but nothing there yet; see AUSTRALIA. And 6855 supposedly at 21-09 only, but curtailment not yet implemented. If 9580 were to activate with same programming as 6855 has had in the mornings, it would be // 9955 at 12-14, rather pointless.

There seems to be no significant change in WRMI frequency usage from B-16 to A-17, except on 13m: 21525 replacing 21675. Circa 14 UT March 26, I cannot detect either, but finally a JBA carrier on 21525 at 1600. That`s for the Radio Africa service which is ``excited`` about the frequency change, why? There is no need for it at all in the wide-open 13m band, altho it is less than 1% lower, a very slight edge vs the MUF struggling to reach 22 MHz; 21525 anyway is a legacy WYFR channel which WRMI might as well honor in this way. At 1400 all I can get on 13m is a JBA carrier on 21505 which would be Saudi Arabia at 12-15.

BTW, HFCC shows another WOOB, 6875 again registered for WWCR-1 at 21-02 but their own website does not, still 15825/6115/3215 at least thru Mayend (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, March 26 at 1320, no signal yet from R. CatÃlica Mundial, but WEWN is still S9+10 on 5810. A-17 schedule shows 14-24 on 12050, 00-14 on 5810. 12050 is on at 1433, but fortunately not strong enough yet to blast even 12045 with spurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1632 UT March 26
