Hauser
** ALBANIA [non]. 9395 // 5950, Nov 9 at 0237, Great // good reception
of great music in WRMI World Music Fill --- instead of Radio Tirana as
now scheduled on both at 0230. Once again there has been a breakdown
in the convoluted automated routing of RT programming into WRMI;
previously caused by RT itself changing audio feed URL without notice.
In case there was any doubt, no RT announcements, but instead at 0245
WRMI own Spanish ID not by Rudy or Dino; and 0300 both into English
from Radio Prague. I`ll bet the Friday-only at 2300 Tirana on 5850 is
also a no-show. BTW, if and when restored, there would be no RT at
0230 UT Monday, just when WORLD OF RADIO has shown up on 5950, but
that was part of the WRN relay now curtailed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 5910, Nov 9 at 0345, bigsig about NHL teams and
pending games with their Beijing times! Suspect it`s CRI; yes, CUBA
relay for B-18 is down here ex-9790, which is prudent considering
plunging winter night + solar cycle minima MUFs; however, 9 MHz might
have worked tonight, judging from WRMI. Not a het from HJDH 5910.3v
which remains gone formonths, forever? Nor do I ever hear anycarrier
when frequency is clear before 0100 RRI, after 0500 CRI Cantonese
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 8 at 2030, RHC English is VP S7 and
undermodulated, much worse than usual. Something`s always wrong at
RHC. Partly due to degraded propagation altho K-index at 21 is only 2
and G1 storm not started yet. Arnie`s B-18 sked effective Nov 11, via
Wolfgang Bueschel shows 15140 to remain now and expand to continuously
1200-2130, but in three different segments of site, power, antenna;
take that, Oman:

1200-1600 15140 QVC 250 130 SoAm Spanish
1600-1900 15140 BAU 100 010 ENAm Spanish
1900-1930 15140 BAU 100 340 WNAm Arabic
1930-2000 15140 BAU 100 340 WNAm Creole
2000-2100 15140 BAU 100 340 WNAm English
2100-2130 15140 BAU 100 340 WNAm French
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Nov 9 at 0045, RHC English, but no // found, neither
old 11880 nor new 9720 as from Nov 11 (local or UT?) (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 5950, Nov 9 at 0051, WRMI in British English, VP S9-
S5, discussing French politicians, and Romania, somewhat more readable
with ECSS, but het de 5952.4 Bolivia must be avoided by PBT and narrow
bandwidth; anyhow presumably new RFI relay as just appeared on the
WRMI skedgrid. This will be helpful if it continue beyond Nov 18 when
RFI says it will cancel its morning English, retaining 1400, only? Ivo
Ivanov reports that the scheduled 06-07 English from Issoudun on 7235
is already absent, leaving only the 0600 WRN via WRMI relay on 5950.
Meanwhile, the new 00-01 RFI 5950 bumps off Japan and Israel via WRN
which we got for a week or two. Whatever else is on the WRN sked at
15-24 UT
http://babcock.media/world-radio-network/schedules/Schedule-English-North-America.pdf
should still be showing on 5950 if you can hear it, and until more
changes be made (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Nov 9 at 0056, absolutely no signal from XEPPM, as it
is getting quite sporadic. Yet Terry Krueger in Florida was hearing a
weak 6185 Nov 5 at 1103 // MW 1060. ~1100 is a very strange time for
it to be on; beware of North Korea on 6185, but which is in French at
11-12 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Nov 8 at 2042, no signal from R. Nigeria,
Kaduna, via WRMI, scheduled 2000-2300. Ivo Ivanov, back after more
than a month of silence, points out that besides WRMI relays, RN,K is
also scheduled via ISSoudun, France:
05-07 7335, 07-09 13840, 11-15 17690, 20-23 7235 (-21 CCI with
Romania). These cover same timespans as RMI 11580, also 05-09 & 11-15.

7335, Nov 9 at 0552 check, guess what: JBA carrier under heavy pulse
jamming by CUBA against an ex-Radio Martà frequency. Something`s
always wrong.

Kai Ludwig replies to the WOR iog: ``So who is the financier of these
Issoudun transmissions? FRCN Kaduna itself is so short of money that
they can hardly operate their own Jaji transmitters anymore (so it was
probably not even an equipment failure that silenced 6090 kHz again
earlier this year):

https://www.dailytrust.com.ng/fgs-information-agencies-groan-under-poor-funding.html

Kai``. Viz.:

``FRCN Kaduna, which was hitherto a leading source of information to
many Hausa speakers in Nigeria and neighbouring countries, is now a
shadow of itself. The Radio Kaduna, as popularly called, does not
operate full hours because it cannot afford diesel to run its
transmitter in Jaji. âWhenever our transmitter in Jaji is off because
of power supply, the radio station goes off air. The transmitter
guzzles diesel that the stationâs meagre resources canât afford,â a
senior staff of the station said`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 5980, Nov 9 at 0055, pulse jamming already over
weak station, i.e. RRI Spanish now here at 00-01. No, no, DentroCuban
Jamming Command, this is not Radio MartÃ, not until its *0600! Commies
vs ex-Commies. RRI Galbeni also 5980 in English at 23-24: so much for
monitoring Radio Chaski, Perà sign-off circa 0000, which ought to be
detectable now without all the QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 6020, Nov 9 at 0351, CRI Chinese via ALBANIA has
considerable undercurrent of talk in Arabish? It`s Radio Tamazuj,
0330-0400, 250 kW, 327 degrees from MADAGASCAR so also USward. Both
stop about 0357 but still a carrier, taken over by RRI Galbeni IS for
0400 English to western North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 7580, Nov 9 at 0058, VP in Chinese? Likely CNR1 jammer
vs VOA Tibetan scheduled this hour only via Kuwait (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 5875, Nov 9 at 0049, very poor in English, is BBCWS, 250 kW
due east from Woofferton to S Asia at 00-01; more English: 05-06 due
south; 19-22 (Sat/Sun -21) also southerly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 11850, Nov 8 at 2044, S9-S7 of tonal African language,
music. It`s VOA Hausa via BOTSWANA, daily except Sunday 2030-2100
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7355 & 7365, Nov 9 at 0100, no signals from R.
Martà on the two frequencies scheduled this hour, just some jamming,
but still audible mixed jamming on 6030. Suspect the upper GBs are off
rather than a sharp MUF cutoff this early in evening. And later at
0341, 7355 & 7435 are VG over jamming, as usual much better than 6030
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.1+, Nov 9 at 0101, WBCQ with an `Allan Weiner
Worldwide` playback filling an Available Time Slot; over ``William
Tell Overture`` he queries, ``what the hell happened to radio? We`re
still trying, yes we are`` and then plugs americanradiohistory.com
site, into the early history of RCA. I wish he would announce at the
outset, the original YOOL airdate so we can keep better track of
episodes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780 // 5950 // 5850 // 9395, UT Fri Nov 9 at 0107, `Voice
of the Report of the Week` on all these WRMIs; maybe one reason he`s
not on WBCQ any more; the self-absorbed John musing about not making
many changes but maybe some reduxions in December. 5850 & 9395 are
*much* stronger than the others, and 9395 has surged up to S9+30/40.
Skedgrid shows he`s also on 7730 the previous hour UT Fri 00-01 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) WRMI: See also nons: ALBANIA, FRANCE,
NIGERIA

** U S A. 5970, Nov 9 at 0054, S9+20 dead air from presumed WEWN
Spanish. The QSY from 12050 was supposed to be at 0000 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS massively updated for post-DST and B-18 season:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

WORLD OF RADIO schedule totally updated:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html

** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 13860, Nov 7 at 1455, very poor ME talk; it`s R.
Ashna in Pashto at 1430-1500, then Dari 1500-1630, 300 kW, 75 degrees
from Woofferton UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Nov 8 at 1535, PMS is on and managing to modulate
without the spurspikes plus/minus 100 kHz range I was getting before
2200 on Nov 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BULGARIA. 11945, Nov 7 at 1503, S Asian song at S7-S5. It`s AWR in
Tamil, 250 kW, 111 degrees via Sofia, says HFCC, so I guess the music
is pro-Adventist, or at least pro-Christian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Nov 7 at 0701, this RHC is still on opening final hour
of English replays, but 0703 cut to dead air just before news can
start; supposed to run at 0600-0700 only. After 0700, 6000, 6060 and
6165 remain, while 6100 is a JBA carrier, presumably still RHC too.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, Nov 8 at 1542, RHC Spanish still on here, unlike Nov
6, but weak S9-S6, // others also going: 15230, 11760, 9535, 7340, two
of them soon to be dropped.

Wolfgang Bueschel has received the new B-18 sked to go into effect
November 11; here are the morning and midday blox:
1200-1500 6000 QVC 250 305 NCAm Spanish
1200-1600 9535 BEJ 100 230 CeAm Spanish
1200-1600 9640 BEJ 050 110 Antill Spanish

1200-1500 13780 BEJ 050 160 SoAm Spanish
1200-1600 15140 QVC 250 130 SoAm Spanish
1400-1600 13700 BAU 100 315 WNAm Spanish

1600-1630 11760 BAU 100 n-d NCAm Spanish Mon-Sat
1600-1630 11760 BAU 100 n-d NCAm Esperanto Sun only
1600-1900 15140 BAU 100 010 ENAm Spanish
1630-1900 11760 BAU 100 n-d NCAm Spanish

Note that last Sunday I heard Esperanto on both 11760 and 15140. Also
of note, the new English frequency for ``Africa`` at 00-01 will be
9720, // 5040 Antilles (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13820, 11860, Nov 8 at 1543, nothing but WON
jamming here, not even a carrier detectable from Greenville MartÃ. JBA
carrier amid on 11930. Is it VP prop or GB off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [and non]. See USA: WRMI

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Nov 7 at 2050, APR on MWV already signing off
with English schedule, and today`s outro song, ``A Place For Us``.
Usual good signal all the way from Mahajanga (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SINGAPORE. 7355, Nov 8 a 1550, poor signal in Asian language: BBC
Korean at 1530-1830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 12034.898, Nov 8 at 1536, JBA talk, from AWR Marathi at
1530-1600, 125 kW, 345 degrees from Trincomalee, always? off-frequency
now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1955 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday November 7 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, and about one second later
on WBCQ 7490+, both fair; and a fine example of coÃrdination, both
having latened exactly one hour post-DST. Next:

0729 UT Saturday HLR 6190-CUSB Germany to WSW
1200 UT Saturday Unique 9265 via WINB to WSW
1531 UT Saturday HLR 9485-CUSB Germany to WSW

Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Nov 7 at 1421 check, this WRMI with JBA music and not
// 9955. Usage of 5950 is constantly changing, and at one time would
duplicate the 9955 morning block.0

5950, UT Thu Nov 8 at 0147, trying to check whether this WRMI is now
// 9395 as on the skedgrid --- 5950 with Oldies music, 9395 only a JBA
carrier, so can`t be sure. 0151 ``Moon River``, 0152 Oldies-style ID
(the word Oldies is never heard), 0153 VOA news, 0158 ad for cheap
airline tickets with 800 number, 0200 opening RAE with multi-lingual
ID reel, prior to English-only.

5950, one more WRMI check at 0558 Nov 8; very poor music, and not //
9395 fair with other music. Presumably one or both about to pick up
RFI via WRN relay. Speaking of which, Mike Cooper in GA says Nov 7:

``RFI ENGLISH CUTBACK =-= At the end of today's 1400 RFI English
broadcast, there was an announcement that RFI English morning
broadcasts will be discontinued later this month. The 1400 "Paris
Live" program will continue.`` And on Nov 8:

``I heard the announcement again today at the end of the 1400 UT
English hour. It said that effective Sunday, November 18, RFI English
morning broadcasts will come to an end. The announcement encourages us
to join RFI for "new Paris Live programs" at 1400 from Monday through
Friday every week. This implies there will be no more weekend
broadcasts. No mention was made of the daily 1600 broadcast (which is
a repeat of the 1400 hour, with a fresh newscast). I have yet to find
any mention of these changes on RFI's web site``

The 0600 only has been on SW, 7245 direct, new frequency for B-18 I`ve
yet to check, and also on WRN via WRMI 5950. Maybe also at 1600, tho
WRN sked is self-contradictory also showing New Zealand that hour M-F.
Of course, 5950 at 1600 is audible only circumchobee.

Meanwhile checked at 1750 UT Nov 8, Jeff White, logged into his WRMI
skedgrid spreadsheet flanked by anonymous moose, wombat, ferret and
hedgehog, has entered yet another change, now showing 5950 at 00-01
with Radio France International. Before that, in same bright green,
it`s generic WRN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 11650-11695, 11765-11790, 11850-11880, all very
approximate, Nov 6 at 2150, intermittent modulation spike spurs
matching PMS on 11775. I first noticed this when checking 11880 for
RHC, see CUBA. All disappear when 11775 goes off at 2156. Fortunately,
so-called Caribbean Beacon usage of 11775 is quite sporadic. Such
spurs had been reported previously:

``11775, Caribbean Beacon at 1726 with OC to 1729 when a sermon by the
late Dr. Gene Scott came on // 13845 (WWCR) to 1731 and OC to 1732 and
back to the late Dr. Gene Scott â Very Good Oct 13 â I guess Pastor
Melissa Scott's satellite feed was acting up as the carrier never
dropped dead but the still very dead Dr. Gene Scott kept dropping
dead. Also this one was noted later acting up by showing up plus and
minus 100 kHz (Mark Coady, Selwyn, Ontario, Kenwood TS440S or Ten-Tec
Argonaut II and 40 and 80 meter off centre-fed dipoles, ODXA iog via
DXLD) So spurs on 11675 & 11875? Seek those (gh)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 7780, Nov 6 at 2100, WRMI with disco-vamping theme
music from RAE, no opening in German until 2102.5.

7780 // much stronger 9395, Nov 6 at 2203, RAE via WRMI in Italian.

Above M-F only. Note that RAE English on 9395 UT Tue-Sat, is now
scheduled one hour later at 0200-0230, as yet unconfirmed by
monitoring. Nov 7 at 0200, 9395 is JBA!

And the one on 9955 has also shifted one UT hour later, RAE Portuguese
at 12-13 instead of 11-12 during the DST season, no doubt confusing to
Brazilians who have their own different DST changes to consider (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also GERMANY [non]; USA: WRMI

** CUBA. 6000 // 6165, UT Tue Nov 6 at 0200, RHC beginning 6-hour
English span of 1-hour shows repeated over & over & over & over &
over, previewing content including ``DXers Unlimited with Arnie Coro``
--- what? That`s supposed to be a Sunday+UT Monday show; has it moved,
an announcer slip, or playback of yesterday instead of today`s
produxion? Did not listen to any full hours following to deconfirm.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. The mitweek edition should now be
imminent on UT Wednesday Nov 7.

Not checked again until 0711 Nov 6, when 6165 & 6100 & 6060 & 6000 are
all on, plus 6020 VP leapfrog of 6100 over 6060 another 40 kHz below.
But tonight at 0716, 5040 is off, unlike last night when it
accompanied the others into the sixth hour. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740 // 13700, Nov 6 at 1452, RHC Spanish still on both,
starting `Estampas de Cuba` which is not about stamps but scenery; now
that the 1400 CRI English relay has moved to 15700, other transmitter
on 13740 can stay on without risking collision. But at 1504 recheck,
both of them are off. The exact nominal spans for each may not be
known until a sesquiweek or so when Arnie issue a new delayed B-18
schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX, LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 6 at 2200, no signal yet; RHC seems confused, or
undecided, about what to do with its second English hour of the day to
``Africa``. Had been at 2300 here during A-season, but in previous B-
season shifted *earlier* to 2200. Nov 5 it was sporadic after 0000
along with 5040. Recheck at 2350 Nov 6 finds 11880 on again with poor
-fair signal and barely modulated, distorted cutting in and out, like
before seemingly Kriyol, while 5040 is still in Spanish.

After 0000 UT November 7, 5040 is definitely in English, somewhat
suptorted still at 0030 check. By now 11880 is a JBA carrier, maybe
something else. RHC never used to run it after 2400 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. 5950, Nov 6 at 0713, WRN via WRMI, African-accented
interview in English so is it RFI or DW? 0715 ID in passing as DW-
Africa, as sked from WRN this hour. See also USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [and non]. 11815, Nov 6 a 1406, NHK World Radio in Japanese
is atop CCI from TRT, within a few Hz of each other today! By 1458,
however, near the end of this collision, Turkish music is dominant
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Nov 6 at 0600:26, XEPPM goes from othermusic without
a break right into choral Mexican NA, S9-S7 and then quick ID as a 100
kW station, i.e. their MW 1060 XEEP which is nominally only 20 kW at
night! And I do believe it is very night. SW supposedly signs off now,
but instead starts playing more music medley; what happened to the RFI
Spanish news relay which used to go on at 0600 at least on MW? Manuel
MÃndez, Spain has the answer to the WOR iogroup, since he was
listening at the exact same time, earlier and later:

``6185, Radio EducaciÃn, Ciudad de MÃxico, 0447-0619*, 06-11, Spanish
and Portuguese songs, at 0600 anthem, ID â1060 AM, medio siglo de
acompaÃar la transformaciÃn social, polÃtica y cultural de MÃxico,
100.000 watts de potencia, desde la Ciudad de MÃxico, Radio EducaciÃn,
una emisora del Servicio Nacional de ComunicaciÃn Cultural, crea,
colabora, comparteâ, classic music, at 0607 Radio France International
news in Spanish, âLas noticias de Radio Francia Internacionalâ, at
0619 close. At first 35433 and later 25422`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Nov 6 at 1408, Radio Nigeria, Kaduna, via
WRMI back to northern Nigeria, yet hefty S9+10 in reverse to OK; is
playing some really wild rustic music, great fun to listen to; but at
1450-1457+ recheck it`s crapped out to dead air, WRMI doing nothing
about it. This has happened before, or defaulting to fill music,
Oldies, or other programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690 // 11940 // 12030, Nov 6 at 2155, REE same Spanish
programming now, while a previous day after 2200, 9690 // 11940 had
split from 11685 // 12030 for separate shows, the latter `Africa Hoy`.
Also, circa 2030 I am still hearing that low het from off-frequency
Nigeria below 9690 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 11815.00, November 6 at 1406, TRT collision with NHK finds
Japan the winner, today only a few Hz apart rather than ~700. But by
1458 recheck, VOT music is atop as Japan is about to sign off. The
other TRT, English is also not askew, on 12035.0 with poor signal at
1406 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15580, Nov 6 at 2105, end VOA news and into ``VOA-One, all
the hits and more!``, rock music, blasting in, wideband; what a pity
they do not emit any classical music this way (or *any* way).

[non] 9485, Nov 6 at 2158, similar music but not // 15580, maybe way
out of sync? Much weaker. Unlike 15580, this one at 2200 plays the
standard ``VOA, Washington DC`` sign-off and Yankee Doodle Dandy, as
it is getting whished by DRM noise which has started centred on 9490.
9485 is really the 2130 VOA Bambara service via BOTSWANA, while 9490
is Romania starting its DRM Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 5935, Nov 6 at 2355, Brother Scare anticipating end of his
ministry since Jesus is almost recome. Yeah, sure; can hardly wait.
First noticed with bigsig on 11870 = 2 x 5935, as I am checking out
Cuba 11880 on the PL-880 with external antenna plugged in. Maybe
receiver overload, as soon on the R75 I am not hearing 11870 but 5935
is S9+40. WWCR of course, but own schedules are contradictory.
Transmitter sked effective Nov 4 shows WWCR-2 starting 5935 at 2300.
But program sked still dated Oct 1! Shows 5935 starting at 0000 UT = 7
pm CDT with DGS, not Scare, and no Scare anytime on 5935 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WRMI skedgrids via
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
have now been redated effective Nov 4 --- the individual System
program skeds, not really updated, still showing 5950 with various
outdated programming, while the frequency blox at the top now label
5950 as World Radio Network at 15-03 & 05-08 daily, 285 degrees from
XMTR 5, but no details. See also GERMANY [non]; and ARGENTINA [non].

Furthermore, Radio Martà is no longer mentioned anytime on 5950, so
maybe that different programming is over & done with, and we can also
only hope, the jamming it attracted even beyond its own hours (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
