** CUBA. 6000, Sunday March 17 at 0639, this RHC English is off, but
the other four of The Cuban Five are on, this time with good
modulation: 6165, 6100, 6060, 5040 with honky-tonk piano, ``Ain`t
Misbehavin``` as outroed. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Sunday March 17 at 1916, `DXers Unlimited` is just
starting on RHC, but VP S4-S4 with depressed MUF. At least is back to
usual time within the hour rather than near the start as one week ago.
Too poor to copy, but as usual Arnie is hurrying thru his script. You
should have heard him `En Contacto` at 1345 on several Spanish
frequencies, breakneck pace and very slurred speech. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 7285, Sunday March 17 at 0616, church choir and
organ, Afrikaans talk, sermon? S7-S9, from Radio Sonder Grense which
has only 10-14 days left as an SWBC station. It`s 100 kW at 275
degrees from Meyerton, not hard to hear here, nor is the night
frequency 3320 at 18-05 UT as the sun is setting; after 7285 at 05-08,
it`s 9650 at 08-18 with Guinea, Saudi and other QRM problems (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7490, March 17 at 1505, synthetic Spanish on
WWCR --- o, it`s TOMBS with choppy translation of Brother Scare`s
contact info, rendering his name as ``La Escalera del Hermano``, ha3;
at least they did not transform it into El Susto del Hermano! Then
other languages so garbled I can`t be sure of them, maybe Swedish,
etc. Can`t he get these voices to be hoarse? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, March 17 at 0625 or so, WRMI Oldies with ``Alice`s
Restaurant`` which goes on and on until 0637; a treat to hear but only
fair with some fadedowns; if // 9395, inaudible there. The canned
announcer has it easy, never identifying or saying anything about the
tunes which sing for themselves (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9380.422, March 17 at 1357-1401+, S3-S4 of fading open
carrier, vs much weaker JBA carrier on 9380.0. HFCC and EiBi have
nothing scheduled now on 9380, only AIR elsewhen, but Aoki/NDXC still
shows the AIR National Channel. Maybe the stronger carrier is a ute
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. Our prime beacon reference for North America,
http://dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm
now is headed by this note in red:

``Beacons are being decommissioned at such a rapid rate that many
listed here may already be off the air. By 2026, most of these beacons
will be gone with only a few left, __mainly in remote areas.``
More about this in WORLD OF RADIO 1973 and DXLD 19-11

401, March 16 at 0627, dash and YPO, NDBeacon of 500 watts at
Peawanuck, Ontario. I was tuned to 400.

366, March 16 at 0632, dash and YMW, NDB of 500 watts at Maniwaki,
Quebec

355, March 16 at 0634, dash and YWP, NDB of 200 watts at Webequie,
Ontario; a new one here

346, March 16 at 0636, dash and YXL, NDB of 500 watts at Sioux
Lookout, Ontario

341, March 16 at 0648, dash and YYU, NDB of 500 watts at Kapuskasing,
Ontario, mixed with but unblocked by local 25 watt EI in Enid (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, March 16 at 0620, RHC English this time is
overmodulated and splattering out to 15 kHz above and below. 6165 &
6060 are OK; 6000 & 5040 are off. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, March 16 at 1348, RHC is S9+20 here, but no spurs
detectable, shux, with WINB silent Saturday from DRM 13755-13760.
Other RHC, 13780, is only S8-S9 and JBM at 1349. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, March 16 at 2029, RHC starting Arabic; 15140, March 16
at 2030, RHC starting Brazuguese. Unknown if both were in French
during 2000 semihour today, like they were yesterday; then splitting.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9720, March 16 at 2039, just caught an open carrier and then
off, probably a pre-check by RHC. My next check at 2157 finds S9+30
OC, 2159.5 IS and theme, opening French (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 13630 // 11640, March 16 at 2033, CRI English, YL narration
about ``John Smith in China`` part of a literary series, fair-poor
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, March 16 at 2210, undermodulated Spanish? S5-S8,
announcement and music; presumed XEPPM as always on much earlier than
scheduled, but from when?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, March 16 at 2201, Irish music at S9, VG,
then announcement as ``Whiskey in the Jerk``(?), 2204 DJ says he`s
just testing in preparation for his St. Patrick`s Day broadcast
tomorrow. No proper ID, but he is ``The old Irishman, from the land of
the leprechaun`` -- an old man needs to go to bed, stayed up later
than he should; a bit more music and off at 2206*. Many logs here as
Irish Rose Radio, and it`s a jar the whiskey is in:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,51953.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, March 17 at 0032, VP music at S3-S4, not 5
X 1390 KCRC-AM local as I was hearing earlier at 2202 on the other
receiver. Many logs here say it was Moonlight Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,51963.0.html
And Wolverine came on same frequency a few minutes later (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNIDENTIFIED 6919-LSB

** TURKEY. 12035.713, Sat March 16 at 1350, VOT English is S5-S7 with
`Letterbox` but too poor to copy, also with weaker het from 12035.0
KSDA and stray Cuban pulse jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1973 monitoring: missed checking Sat March 16
at 1230 and 2100 on WRMI, 9955; anybody hear them?

Sat March 16 at 1531 on HLR 9485-CUSB: inaudible via UTwente SDR, and
Alan Gale, England, could not hear it either.

Confirmed UT Sun March 17 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+30.

Also confirmed UT Sun Mar 17 starting at 0336 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO,

** U S A. 17775, Sat March 16 at 1805, no signal from KVOH if it`s on
for weekly English broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6917-LSB, March 17 at 0034, mixture of musix, crowd
sounds, song not in English, Brazilian talk, 0038 seems like QSOs. I`m
rather sure of the language; could this be all the way from Brasil?
But several logs here guess Spanish and others, no Portuguese:

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6180, March 16 at 0201, oh oh, horrible head-on
collision between RNA in Brazuguese ID, and CRI relay via CUBA in
Chinese, making a fast SAH; indeed no RNA on 11780 tonight; by 0226
it`s the one on top. No doubt messes up both CRI relay hours 0100-
0300. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba --- in the sense that they
should have known 6180 was the #1 Brazilian frequency subject to
renewal. But CRI is going back up to 9580 in A-19 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100 & 6060 & 5040, March 15 at 0637, these three RHC English
frequencies are on, and two are off: 6165 & 6000. Good modulation
level but 5040 a bit rough. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13643.406 & 13672.702 & 13728.296, March 15 at 1428, JBA
spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM at intervals of approx. 28.297 kHz,
while the fourth one on the plus side is again blocked by WINB 13755-
13760 QRDRM. Each is wobbling slightly by 1 or 2 Hz. Fortunately these
are too weak to threaten otherstations much, but nevertheless defects.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, March 15 at 1436 RHC jazz is distorted and crackling,
while // 15140 is slightly cleaner. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, March 15 at 2005, RHC is S9+10 in French but JBM. //
15140 also French at S9 but merely undermodulated, i.e. better than
15370. WRTH shows 15140 French to NAm at 2100, so it has shifted an
hour earlier; but 15370 French to Europe at 2030, so how did it wind
up at 2000? At least, today. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9720, March 15 at 2249, RHC in Haitian Kriyol again instead
of Portuguese, which I expect a lot more Africans would comprehend
altho it`s rather late beyond Bissau. The 23-24 hour again in English,
VG // much weaker 5040 at 2343 check. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11980, March 15 at 2253, S9 of dead air --- what`s this? O
yes, second harmonic of 5990 warming up for CRI English relay from
2300, which is also on at S9+10. Hard to believe there is any harmonic
suppression on this one. 2336 recheck, 11980 is S9 and suptorted now
much weaker than 5990 at S9+20/30.

But 25m is really propagating now with 11950 Mesa Redonda pre-IS at
S9+30; 11840`s plus/minus 10 spurs perfectly readable at S9 and also
with JBA carrier +/- 20 spurs on 11820 & amid still jamming on 11860.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, March 16 at 0200, RHC English is JBM, and with SAH
presumably Turkey, while the only // 6165 is merely undermodulated.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST) see also BRAZIL

** CUBA. 5040, March 16 at 0229, RHC Spanish is JBM, suptorted with
spikes, awful sounding but same as clearer music on 6060. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glen Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 9490, March 16 at 0232, Spanish about Venezuela, poor
S6-S8 but no jamming audible, against Radio RepÃblica via FRANCE,
unusual. Wonder if sked has shifted for this along with DST in Cuba.
Skip is long with Europe also audible on 31m, 9690 Spain, while JBA
carriers or nothing from WRMI 9395 & 9955, RHC on 9535 & 9640. So
jamming could still be rampant, just not propagating to here (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUAM. 12040, March 16 at 2259, as I am surveying RHC and Spain on
25m, just as I tune in, I hear what sounds like the last note of RHC
IS and cut off the air. But I can`t figure a formula to explain as a
mixing product. O, it`s really KSDA ending its 2230 Javanese service,
regularly well audible here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17570, March 15 at 2001, poor signal at S7-S9, maybe
sorta French? Found here as SSOB after JBA carrier from 17815 WHRI, no
signal from 17775 KVOH, nor anything else. So what is this? HFCC shows
AWR, daily 2000-2030 only, 250 kW, 295 degrees from Talata in mos
language. What does that abbr.? Consulting WRTH 2019, finally find it
filed under UK: AWR Africa on page 498, as Mossi to W Africa. That`s
the SIL language abbr., as in EiBi`s readme.txt: ``MOO Moore/MÃorÃ:
Burkina Faso (5m) [mos]`` --- note the lack of congruence, not even
one letter S in that version.

Anyhow this implies that MWV English at same hour would not be making
it if it had stayed on 17640 instead of always-audible 11965 in B-18.
And it plans to stay on 11965 in A-19, as well as 13670 for the other
English at 18 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, March 15 at 2336, no signal already from ORTM, if it
was on today, must have quit earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, March 15 at 0626 RNZI tune-in, PM Jacinda
Ardern is speaking, apparently live, condemning the mosque massacres,
and then taking questions from press. An increasingly rare instance of
getting breaking news direct from the source thanks to SW. As usual
during its sole hour on this band, RNZP is the SSOB by far, S9 fading
to S6; by 0631 weakening a bit, heard past 0635 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, March 15 at 2339, VP with song, no carrier
and sounds a little bit more on-key about 6924.96. 2349 fade up
slightly with wacko screaming, music, fade down again by 2359. First
pirate I have heard in a few weeks. Too late to get into this week`s
FRW deadline at 0000, except for Harold Frodge who was editing it.
Several reports here say it was Radio Gaga between 2339 and 2413*
closing with SSTV, and what I heard was probably Beavis & Butthead:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Friday March 15 at 2252, REE in Arabic, S9+20 on ME
frequency off-the-back here, 2258 still in Arabic. This language does
not appear in WRTH or other schedules, but the second time I`ve heard
it during this semihour. But // 11685 to Africa is still/again AWOL.

Also off is 11940 to S America, but VG 9690 to N America remains on in
Spanish, not Arabic. By 2301 the two remaining frequencies, 12030 &
9690 have joined for unCastilian song, by way of introducing an
English interview by Justin Coe with today`s guest, Xavier from
Galicia. So the mostly-music English semihour is back this Friday,
having been away on hembra-huelga last week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3264.9v, March 15 at 0641 JBA trace of music, as this WBCQ
is running all night, and probably all day, maybe by plugging into
HooseSkow Radio, Timtron`s 98.1 LPFM in Skowhegan.

Almost time for `AWWW`, March 15 at 2344 when I survey WBCQ
frequencies: 3264.9, JBA trace; 5130+v, NO signal; 7490.14v, good
S9+10 about praying; 9330.13v, TOMBS at S4-S7. Previous music switches
to WTO slightly after 0000 UT Sat March 16 on 7490+, as I move to the
webcast, with rather lo-fi audio. Is it a new live edition? From
Deland of FLA, temp is 84 --- inside the studio so Angela is half-
naked. Says they were away last weekend driving their 100-year-old
cars around Clearwater. 0054 recheck, reading some pirate logs from
the new Free Radio Weekly edition which just came out a few minutes
earlier, including the ARRL story about increased FCC pirate
enforcement which I had sent in. AW always takes the opportunity to
encourage pirates to get on WBCQ instead and avoid prosecution, and
offers special rates to them, especially when 3265 is no longer just
testing. A fuller report from John H Carver, Jr.:

``Tonight's show started on time with a good signal on 7490. Allan and
a half naked Angela in the studio in FLA. He said that they were gone
last weekend on another antique car rally. He also said that having
fun was an important thing to do. In passing he mentioned that it was
74 in Florida at the moment, down from the mid-eighties today. He said
that he had been in discussions with a man earlier this week who
wanted airtime in July for a one-time ten-to-twelve hour program
honoring pirate radio broadcasters. He said broadcasters from Colorado
but the man he talked to was from California.

Then a serious talk about AI. First phone call at 0025 from Ramsey
which continues the AI discussion. Another phone call at 0039
continuing the discussion and postulating about computers taking over
the government. Signal starts to degrade some at 0041.

Reading of emails at 0046. One email with a signal report of 3265
prompts Allan to mention that this spring 3265 will be getting a
different antenna. Nothing said about increasing power. Then a reading
of the Free Radio Weekly. Closing prayer at 0059. Show was off the air
at 0101 and 7490 was off the air about a minute after that. John, Mid
-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15770, March 15 at 2004, S6-S8 of dead air from WRMI.
Perhaps SMTV had kept modulating until 2000 when QSY to another
transmitter on inaudible 5950 scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, March 15 at 1442, WTWW-1 night frequency still
running, while IIRC yesterday 9475 day channel was already up before
this hour. Recheck at 2039, *still* on 5830, I assume never having
brought up 9475 today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
