** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 21 at 1900-1906 check, R. Biafra via WRMI is off again, having come back yesterday. Propagation certainly OK, with big open carrier from 11760 Habana. But 11530 has new life as a diverse-programming channel at 20-21; see USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11885, Dec 22 at 0039, CRI English chat show has YL mentioning that ``Jesus Christ was born in a barn``, in discussion of Xmas festivities. Is this official ChiCom policy? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11950, Dec 22 at 0038, RHC `Mesa Redonda` TV soundtrack diversion hour is propagating tonight at S9+5, but undermodulated, not distorted. Only //, 6000 is S9+25 undermodulated and also distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. See USA: WRMI for cancellations of Brother HyStairical. Preliminary observations of other stations:

WWRB: BS still on 9370, S8 at 0030 Dec 22, and by 0104 has switched to very strong 3185. If it`s not BS himself speaking, need to listen a little longer to be sure it`s not some other gospel huxter program. But these two have been dedicated to nothing but BS.

WBCQ: 7490 too weak to copy for VORW before 0200 Dec 22 but confirmed on webcast, then after 0200 still with BS. Suspect WBCQ will be the last to go, as Allan Weiner has asserted that he ``loves`` that man. Times:
On 7490 only: M-F 23-24; Mon 01-04, Wed & Sun 02-05, Fri & Sat 02-04

WHRI: Not yet investigated the various BS scheduled times, not even the new 6040 before 2400.

WWCR: not checked much yet, but here is the complete Overcomer sked according to their online pdf program sked dated Dec 4, UT days!:

3215: M-F 06-10, Mon 02-03, Tue-Sat 05-06
5890: M-F 06-13, Tue-Sat 04-06, Sat 06-13, Sun 05-13, Mon 05-06
5935: Sat 2300-2430, M-F 23-24
6115: Wed 23-01 Thu
7490: Sun 15-16
7520: Mon 00-02
9350: Sat 21-23
9980: M-F 13-21, M-F 23-24, Sat 13-24, Sun 13-24
12160: Sun 18-20, Sat 19-21
15795: M-F 11-12

MW Stations: major ones with Overcomer were KAAY-1090 Little Rock AR, WCKY-1530 Cincinnati OH, and WWVA-1170 Wheeling WV, skeds as in my previous post. Harold Frodge says no longer heard on KAAY after 0300 UT Dec 22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1909 monitoring: confirmed Thursday December 21 at 2230.5 on WRMI, 5850, good. Not confirmed UT Fri Dec 22 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: once again, NO signal detectable (neighbors: 9265 WINB S9, 9370 WWRB poor S4-S8; 9395 WRMI fair; even the other more propagable WBCQ, 7489.8v is JBA carrier now).

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580 & 11825 & 7780, like 3+ hours earlier, Dec 21 at 1858, WRMIs which would have been carrying Overcomer, are still off the air. Power is still on and 9955 is still running with TOM, while 9395 & 9455 are audible with Oldies.

Not checked again until 2036 Dec 21, when 11580 is still off during an hour when it had been carrying diverse programming! 9955 with TOM // 9980 WWCR: not BS now but a British Voice, presumably TOM since it`s same on 9980.

NOW, the diverse programming: today Thu Dec 21 at 2036 being Voice of the Report of the Week, to be heard not on 11580 but on 11530 instead (which was OFF the air too at 1900-1930 when sometimes it carries Radio Biafra, like yesterday). VORW is also // on 9455, but another mostly-BS frequency, 7780, which this hour had been // 11580 & 9455, remains off. So is 11530 instead of 11580 a permanent change for the 20-21 diverse hour? Or possibly a mistake? If on same antennas as before, now 160 degrees on 11530, ex-44 on 11580.

Not checked again until 2230 when 11530 is off and 11580 is back on during the Argentina relay hour in Italian. 11825 and 7780 still off.

11825 & 7780, next check at 0024 UT Dec 22, still off, and so is 7570, the formerly all-BS XMTR 11 on the schedule from 2300 to 1400, via a 315 degree antenna right across North America with the biggest of the 7 MHz signals, even better than 7730 here, and which would be ideal for diverse programming. At this time all the other frequencies are nominal: 5850, 5950, 9955, 11580.

9395, WRMI had been carrying BS at certain hours, and it still is, at 0030 check Dec 22, // 9370 WWRB. An oversight to be deleted too?

7730, XMTR 13, which had been on before 0100 with VORW, is OFF at 0103, as it would have switched to BS all evening. Should be back at 06 for RAE in Japanese. Meanwhile VORW is playing again! As I see it was already scheduled:

9395 // 9455 // 5850, UT Fri Dec 22 at 0103, now all three are carrying the VORW hour (and so is 7490 WBCQ). 5850 is the new one here, replacing TOM which had started at 0100.

After 0200, 5850, XMTR 12, is now off along with all three 7 MHz channels! 5850 should be back at 07 for RAE in English. 11580 remains on for another hour with Ukraine and Prague, JBA, and off at 0300, no more BS there either.

A lot of WRMI diverse programming has been ``attached`` to TOM transmissions. Let us hope that they will not become collateral casualties of this affair, but chances are there could be some cutbacks, with not as much spare time available (nor spare cash!).

BS had been implying that his SW contracts were valid until yearend, so some other stations may be waiting until then to take him off, especially if they cease to be paid. But kudos to Jeff for not waiting, after depending so much on BS for the entire existence of multi-transmitter WRMI.

The WRMI skedgrid has still not been updated to show any of this, as of 0200 UT December 22. Nor is there anything on WRMI FB about Stair; last post there was Dec 16, about a special Dec 22:

``WRMI Radio Miami International, December 16 at 2:51pm  Las Noches con Mirka presenta un programa especial de Navidad y AÃo Nuevo el viernes 22 de diciembre de 5:00-6:30 pm hora de Miami (2200-2330 UTC) en 9955 kHz y streaming via www.wrmi.net. Feliz Navidad de todos nosotros en WRMI`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non] for preliminary observations of his other outlets

** U S A. 12105, Dec 21 at 1902, WTWW-3 with Xmasmx, and much louder on 9930 WTWW-2. 12105 still on at 0037 Dec 22, very poor Xmasmx, now much louder on 5085 WTWW-2 with unmodulated parasites (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540.12, Dec 22 at 0020 UT, KGBC Galveston TX off-frequency tonight with Houston ad, music, hetting 1540. Amid all the QRM I thought I was also hearing some Brazuguese, but if so, surely not from Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 21 at 0524, no signal from R. Biafra via WRMI. Hard to be sure if due to propagation or not, but it seems both transmissions on 11530, at 05 and 19, are sporadic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 1620, Dec 21 at 0118, R. Rebelde asserting thrice ``Armando y --- en Concierto!!``, good modulation and not // 5025 Rebelde. I suppose the MW outlet has switched to Rebelde FM feed as it often does (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Dec 21 at 0056, R. Rebelde is S9+30 but suppressed/distorted modulation. Wiggle that patchcord! Much like RHC 6000 right now. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 21 at 0052, RHC in Spanish is S9+30 but just barely modulated & suptorted. Wiggle that patchcord! This is the `Mesa Redonda` hour supposed to be // 11950 only, but the latter is a JBA carrier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Dec 21 at 1458, RHC is S9+20/30 but fails to cover the band with filthy spurs. Something`s sometimes right at RHC. Shows they can clean up their act if they want to; or is it all random? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 21 at 0528, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati, but not heard at next check 0611 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7390, Dec 21 at 1424, RNZI is still here, playing a song named/about the kiwi, including bird calls.
Male and female calls to each other included on this long roster:
http://www.doc.govt.nz/nature/native-animals/birds/bird-songs-and-calls/
They are not very musical and doubt what were in the song
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 13710.014, Dec 21 at 1528, BSKSA Qur`an with reverb at S9+10 to S9, beautiful haunting music, not // 15434.985 other program in ME music, no buzz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7570 // 7730, Dec 21 at 0109 via WRMI, I force myself to listen to TOM a few minutes for any reaxion to the latest developments. Still playing some very old clips of BS, and some voices so different I suspect they are someone else entirely. 0110 interrupted by the 84-year-old BS, raving about ``silencing this voice``, ``final judgment``, says 40 years since he started (broadcasting?), ``destruxion is being planned``. Seems he confuses his own self-destruxion with The End Times. Here`s another long story from the local press, via Mike Cooper:

WOMEN AT SOUTH CAROLINA RELIGIOUS COMPOUND SAY PREACHER SEXUALLY ASSAULTED THEM IN THE NAME OF GOD
https://www.postandcourier.com/news/women-at-south-carolina-religious-compound-say-preacher-sexually-assaulted/article_6aeb443e-da86-11e7-bf7a-2779c1133934.html

11825 & 11580, Dec 21 at 1536, two regular Brother Scare WRMI frequencies are off the air. Normally weak 7780 also seems absent, but BS is still to be heard on WRMI`s main frequency 9955. Is The Overgroper being phased out rather than cut out immediately? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1909 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday December 20 at 2200 on WBCQ 7489.878v, fair S9+10 to S8; by 2228 varied down to 7489.860. Modulation seems a little lower on this backup transmitter, but sufficient. Not confirmed UT Thu Dec 21 at 0037, the 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: no signal (while 9370 WWRB is S9+12; 9265 WINB JBA carrier, but unusually, so is 9395 WRMI). Next:

** U S A. 12105, Dec 21 at 0113, Xmasmx is S7 with ``OC,AYF``, so WTWW-3 is still on, now // 5085 WTWW-2, but 5085 is timed running 14 seconds behind 12105, why? My earlier figure of 11 seconds delay on 9930 after 12105 was just an estimate, but this time I am watching my watch. 12105 JBA carrier still at 0524 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17774.888, Dec 21 at 1524, JBA carrier from KVOH, off-frequency to low side for a change, about the same offset (112 Hz) as previously on the high side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540.12, Dec 21 at 0120 UT, KGBC Galveston is off-frequency again making big het with 1540.0 stations; sounds like Aretha, and shortly at 0123 UT, ``We`ve got you covered`` on 1540, naming three more suburbs. I wonder how many separate announcements they have like this? Houston has *lots* of suburbs, but how well 1540 & 1480 cover them, especially at night, is debatable, and Siga is obviously having a hard time drumming up business (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** AUSTRALIA. 5045, Dec 20 at 1417, JBA carrier, presumed Ozy Radio. Maybe if I listen earlier and continuously I could pull some audio, but seems a long shot from here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 20 at 1905, while checking all WRMI frequencies for Brother Scare, surprised to find this one back on, at least today, with R. Biafra, which had been missing for quite a while and presumed cancelled at this time unlike at 0500. Woman in Igbo mentions ``places to vote`` --- is there another elexion pending in Biafraland, or old program? Then usual request in English for reports on ``these numbers`` meaning strange strings denoting shortwave frequencies. VG signal now.

Concludes at 1929 but 11530 stays on air with hilife music, cuts off at 1934:17 but back on in less than a minute, more music (only?), so maybe fill coming from WRMI itself. This lasts until 1959 and WRMI Zanotti ID which is cut off slightly before finished at 2000*.

The latest Biafra file (under another name) on the WRMI server is dated Dec 16 (while R. Herwa is Dec 19). This hour continues to be blank on the WRMI frequency grid, http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs --- Not shown on either transmitter carrying 11530 at other times, #3 or #10, nor any of the other dozen.

I also check 9580 for France relay at 1929, but nothing; if audible may have already closed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 6043 approx., Dec 20 at 0128, FMy blob at S7-S8, much weaker than last night when IDed as LV de tu Conciencia. Again there is but a JBA carrier on 6010.0. Maybe that`s what`s left of HJDH on its proper frequency; or Brasil, but both were usually slightly off-frequency. No major broadcasters are scheduled at this hour on 6010, per NDXC/Aoki, which would you believe it, still also lists Radio Mil in MÃxico, despite gone for many years. I expect schedule aggregators which pull in, er copy, Aoki info re-propagate this misinfo, leading the unwary to misIDs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11845, Dec 20 at 1419, lite pulse jamming against nothing since Martà quit years ago, neatly nestled between RHC parasite on 11850 and RHC fundamental on 11840, a trifecta of cubanos.

11760, Dec 20 at 1424, like yesterday at 1410, RHC distorted and splattering out about 20 kHz, now a little less than 25 kHz then.

15437 & 15303, Dec 20 at 1426, RHC dirty spurblobs out of 15370; looking for further ones at 1549, I can detect much weakers around 15237, 15505, but no more. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed Dec 20 at 1400, WRMI starting `FG Radio`, another new episode with several subjects, about the situation in Syria, a 94-year-old diver, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 20 at 0704, reliable JBA but steady carrier from presumed R. Kiribati (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA. More and more press from the Charleston SC area is coming out about Brother Stair; tnx to Artie Bigley:

http://abcnews4.com/news/local/solicitor-says-multiple-victims-came-forward-with-accusations-against-stair

[excerpt:] With Stairâs arrest on Monday came the revelation that allegations of sexual abuse of girls in the commune dated back years before his 2002 arrest.

A juvenile victim said Stair had sexually assaulted her in his office in the winter of 1992, according to an affidavit signed on Monday.

Another affidavit reveals Stair forced another girl to have sex with him at least 35 times from 1998 to 1999.

WCIV spoke with a teen on Monday who said Stair had sexually assaulted her starting just before she turned 16.

"This was in his radio room," she said. "He calls it his radio room. That is where he was most of the time, and that is where I was molested at."

At least three of the arrest warrants served on Monday also state Stair sexually assaulted other victims inside his radio room.``

** TONGA. 1017, Dec 20 at 1134, JBA carrier vs 1020 splash, presumably R. Tonga now reported to be leaving its carrier on all night. But there are also Christchurch and Sydney stations on 1017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 5930, Dec 20 at 0131, VP S6-S8, sounds like Farsi. It`s ``Dari``, BBC, 300 kW, 95 degrees via AUSTRIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3269-USB, Dec 20 at 0140, MARS net, discussing messages, 6TG called by 6UK. Probably Air Force with truncated suffix-only calls; then a long silence. This strongly resembles the last log of mine on this frequency found in my archive earlier this year a dekamonth ago:

``3269-USB, UT Tue Feb 14 at 0138, another MARS net, this one with radiochex and/or relays among abbr`d calls 6VK, 6GE, 6RB and 6IN, calls fonetikaly`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1909 monitoring: NO signal UT Wednesday December 20 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB (closest other US SW station, 9265 WINB is now a JBA carrier; even 9370 WWRB is VP, but 9395 WRMI is good. So this may be due to or exacerbated by poor propagation; however, stations need to compensate for that by using lower bands in winter nights. All the 9330 programming could be moved with little disruption to 5130v which is mostly off the air weeknights; if not 3265 which must be kept in reserve for a major client?)

Confirmed Wed Dec 20 at 1058, woke up just in time to check the 1030 broadcast on WRMIs: 5850 very good, 9455 good. Also confirmed Wed Dec 20 at 1415.5 on WRMI 9955, fair-good S9, no jamming, slight ACI. Next:

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Dec 20 at 0702, WRMI Oldies is just ending VOA News relay, so it must have started at 0657 and run thru hourtop, and so also must have been downloaded at least an hour before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Wed Dec 20 at 1445, latest `Viva Miami`, still lacking the ``Miami Vice`` theme, just Jeff acknowledging reception reports, mostly only with name, location, frequency, but occasional additional comments in English or sometimes Spanish. Finished by 1456, back to fill music. He mentioned that 9455 is beamed to the southwest from Okeechobee, but it`s listed as 285 degrees which is closer to WNW.

9955, Dec 20 at 1543 and still at 1522, I notice that this WRMI frequency is now off when it normally carries Brother Scare, and so is another BS frequency, 11825; hmmm, could this be coincidence, following The Overgroper`s latest arrest on multiple charges? Other WRMIs are still running, 7780, 9395, 9455, 21525, so no power problem.

Via Artie Bigley, here`s another story about Brother Scare being pulled from some of his MW affiliates, but not (yet?) SW:

7780, 9955, 11580, 11825, Dec 20 at 1905 check, back to presumed TOM on all these WRMIs, altho someone else is preaching; Oldies on 9395 and 9455; and 11530 back with BIAFRA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SOUTH CAROLINA

** U S A. 12105, Dec 20 at 0648, JBA carrier, presumably WTWW-3 left to run all night minus propagation?

12105, Dec 20 at 1816, better but still very poor signal on here with talk; is it WTWW? 9930 has very good signal with Xmasmx, so not //. But shortly I hear the same thing delayed about 11 seconds (why?) asynchronously behind 12105 on 9930, and it is Ted`s voice with his ham radio commercials. On to a version of ``Carol of the Bells``. Furthermore, 9475 WTWW-1 is on with SFAW, so at last we have confirmation that all three transmitters are funxioning, two-thirds of them with the Xmasmx all-the-time (except for all the commercials)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Dec 20 at 1546, KVOH with Xmasmx in Spanish, S9+10 but very undermodulated (much like the only other significant 16m signal, Cuba 17730 at the moment). Maybe undermodulation reduces the spurrage, maybe not; but I have not been hearing the wideband noise lately, altho Ronnie Miller, K5WLT in SeguÃn TX continues to complain of ``white noise hiss`` from KVOH QRMing even the hamband above 18068 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. I have been filing my recent logs of JBA carriers from Pacific MW stations under their countries, since there is very little doubt about their source, and very unlikely I will ever get any audio. But anyone is free to consider them better headed UNID: so far, see KIRITIMATI, MARSHALL ISLANDS, TONGA. I don`t count countries logged, so I am not trying to push the limits to gain something I don`t deserve (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4100.124-CW, Dec 20 at 0143, ``ZN``, the Zebra beacon, sending nothing but ID about 14 x per minute, barely audible. Last time I heard November 1, it was on about 4066, and back in February on 4070. I frequently scan this region but rarely hear any of these (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11560-11570, peaking 11565, Dec 20 at 1421, some kind of loud noise jamming, unseems DRM, containing a slightly shifting tone. Guess what: Nothing is scheduled anywhen, anywhere on 11565 per current EiBi, Aoki/NDXC and HFCC. However, there is VOA Korean on 11570 via Saipan (and before 1400 from 1200, Philippines).

The last item found in our archive about 11565-CUSB, was August 30, 2017 at 0830-0834, from Ivo Ivanov, a Russian numbers station, S06s. He reports a lot of these, many inside SWBC bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** BRAZIL. 11780.007, Dec 19 at 2119, RNA is S8 to S9+10 but somewhat undermodulated, no spurs or distortion, almost on-frequency. Nothing on 6180 now but if 11780 be unheard before 2200, try it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11390, Dec 19 at 1357, JBA carrier. I am about to compare it to 11670 and 11950 as an RHC leapfrog, when 11390 goes off at 1358*; and 11670 is scheduled to close circa 1400 too. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Not to be confused with Marconi Radio International, low-power Italian, which sometimes publicizes 11390 on short notice (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1909, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11735-11785, Dec 19 at 1410, RHC 11760 transmitter is distorted and splattering out to plus/minus 25 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Dec 19 at 1338, TGAV is JBA with talk, as the sun is rising here (allegedly, behind the fog/clouds) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MARSHALL ISLANDS. 1098, Dec 19 at 1333, JBA carrier on the R75 with E-W longwire, no doubt V7AB, which leaves it on all night, after sign-off circa 1130(?). I was first checking 1017 kHz for Tonga which reportedly just started doing the same, but could not detect it. (846 Kiritimati signs off much earlier and does not leave carrier on, so no sunrise DX from it) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 7390, Dec 19 at 1348, RNZI is OK on second day of new frequency, but there is a huge S9+20/30 open carrier on adjacent 7385. As long as it`s not modulating, NZ is unmarred even with LSB tuning. 7385 is obviously WHRI, which FCC has registered here until 1400. WHR own site shows Angel 6 at 1300-1600 is OFF 7385 weekdays for maintenance, but ON with programming, Saturdays and Sundays. Ivo in Bulgaria from his vantage point says there is also ACI to NZ from China on both sides; so yet another QSY may be called for (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1909, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140, Dec 19 at 1416, pop music at S3-S7, poor but better than usual from RSO English hour; never in really well enough for entertainment (and who needs western pop from there?) Mark Taylor, WI in NASWA Flashsheet heard them announcing at end of English hour, 1459 Dec 16, that they ``will be suspending transmissions until 1/7/18, then will resume on another frequency``. I wonder if the QSY refer to FM 90.4 source rather than SW? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1909, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [and non]. 9455, Dec 19 at 0209, Brother Scare, but a much younger old recording; apparently from the late 80s, referring to the State of Israel starting 40 years ago. More of same, sometimes otherhuxters, on the usual TOM frequencies. Such as 3185 WWRB Dec 19 at 1335. Someone is still running the radio output.

In case you haven`t heard, BS has been arrested and charged again. Local newspapers are covering it. From
https://www.postandcourier.com/news/amid-state-and-federal-probe-walterboro-preacher-arrested-following-sexual/article_8545f2d6-e402-11e7-8550-3ba89e550f5c.html
Jay Novello found this on Dec 18, excerpt:

``Preacher Ralph Gordon Stair, 84, was arrested by Colleton County sheriff's deputies Monday morning, and State Law Enforcement Division agents were serving a search warrant at the Overcomer Ministry, which is located on a rural property tucked off S.C. Highway 61, said Lt. Tyger Benton.

Authorities said Stair is charged with three counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, one count of assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, one count of kidnapping, one count of burglary in the first degree, one count of second-degree assault and one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Following his arrest, Stair waived his right to appear before a magistrate for a bond hearing Monday afternoon.

The Post and Courier confirmed that Stair has been the subject of a wide-ranging state and federal criminal investigation â including the involvement of the FBI in the probe â since October. Benton said that the Department of Homeland Security, SLED and the Sheriff's Office were on scene during an early-morning raid of the premises.``

Both are expected to be updated. This is hardly surprising, since videos emerged a few weeks ago of Stair openly groping girls during Tabernacle services. Stair had been talking about going off the air at yearend, not due to prosecution, but funding and god`s will. If he does not quit, will US SW stations now have the courage/excuse to be rid of him once and for all? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1909, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WORLD OF RADIO 1909 monitoring: this week, as is my objective every week, I am finished early enough on Tuesday for the first, rather than last weekly broadcast to emanate at 2030 Dec 19 when WRMI is running three frequencies, 7780, better 9455, best 11580; also repeated at 2130 on 9455 only. By 2127, I notice that 9455 closing Wavescan, has a SAH, no doubt from ChiCom jamming and/or RFA in Chinese via Saipan; also more obvious when WRMI/WOR fades a bit during rest of hour, but still well readable and atop.

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Dec 19 at 0630, WRMI Oldies with Beach Boys? song about ``two girls for every boy``. I never listen to this for any length of time, just tune across, but am sure I have encountered this tune many times before, making me wonder just how limited their playlist may be? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Dec 19 at 0634, music VP S2-S4, must be WTWW still with Xmasmx all the time, and that includes the nightmiddle when hardly propagating. We were wondering why they weren`t running this on WTWW-2 9930 daytime frequency for better coverage; by 2122 Dec 19 check, 12105 is off, and indeed after AWOL for weeks, 9930 is on with Xmasmx at S9+30/40. 9475 also on with SFAW but we have still never heard all three transmitters on the air at once (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. A bit of area tropo UHF DTV DX here, having had hardly any earlier in the fall; today there is fog in the region, and unseasonably warm temps. Dec 19 at 1458 my UHF DTV bandscan, which I perform whenever there is even a slight chance of DX, finds BAD signals on RF 9, 11, 18, 22, 30, 34, 35, 36, 42, 47, and decodes on:

RF 26, KSAS 24, Wichita KS
RF 19, KQCW 20, Muskogee (Tulsa) OK
RF 28, KFDX-DT, 3, Wichita Falls TX
RF 31, KDCU-DT 32, Derby (Wichita) KS
RF 35, KMTW-DT, 36, Hutchinson (Wichita) KS
RF 45, KSNW-DT, 3, Wichita KS

Virtual channel 3 was especially interesting as the STB mixes in KFDX and KSNW from different RF channels:
3-2, KJBO-DT and Telemundo
3-3, Laff and Ion
Back in the analog era, of course, it was not unusual here to have KFDX and KSNW (nà KARD-TV) mixing on 3. WF is somewhat further than W (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Inserting date and tunein time for this one:

** COLOMBIA. 6034-6051 approx., peaking around 6042, Dec 19 at 0220, extremely distorted FMy blob of overmodulated music sounding Cuban, but can`t match it to RHC English or Spanish frequencies, nor anything on 49m, nor a twin spur, nor Cubans on 60m. Slightly more intelligible in JRC`s FM mode, so I keep listening. Quick YL announcement at 0222; another one between tunes at 0227 as La Voz de tu Conciencia! It`s S9+5 here, far more than it ever manages on proper 6010v when in AM. Now on that channel there`s a JBA carrier from algo, but it`s not off-frequency. Is HJDH just way out of whack or attempting something new? The other HJDH on 5910.3 is also on, in AM, almost holding its own against het from Romania 5910.0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
