Logs
** ALASKA. 7355, June 24 at 1212, KNLS English is here today, S7-S9 with parable(?), while // 11870 is JBA carrier. Much better heard sometimes when on 11885 instead sporadically, not today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 11580, Fri June 23 at 2218 check, RAE via WRMI is definitely in Italian hour today, discussing pasta.

11580, Saturday June 24 at 1400, WRMI opening RAE relay in Spanish, so it`s still here, altho missing yesterday, filled by World Music. Show is `primera ediciÃn` for Friday June 23, which would have been at 2200 on 5950; previewing `Actualidad DX` to be included this hour. The program grid at http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
now shows RAE Spanish Mon-Sat at 1400-1500, unlike the frequency grid above it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ASCENSION. 6135, June 24 at 0428, B-B-C- chimes at S9-S7, about to open 0430-0500 French. No het from Brasil, off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4885.02, June 24 at 0429, JBA carrier, same at 0526, presumably R. Clube do ParÃ. Propagation vs noise level is pitiful, but I still wonder if this is a remnant of their usual signal left on air while resolving legal problems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 6030, June 24 at 1207, YL in Chinese, CNR1, not a jammer per Aoki, but getting jammed by residual pulses from Cuba after Martà finished at 1200. Still plenty to block any hope of hearing CFVP. Same type of talk on other frequencies, presumed also CNR1, some of them jammers, without attempting to match: 6105, 6125, 6175, 6180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, June 24 at 0427, RHC English again AWOL from here, but still on 6000 only, undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, June 24 at 0527, R. Rebelde is S9+20 but JBM; still/again like that at 1203 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 6160-, June 24 at 0427 check, NO signal from CKZN. Chris Smolinski had tipped me earlier that it has been missing. O no, another Canadian SW gone? We hope only temporarily (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935.25-USB, June 24 at 0157, pirate music at S9. Dense music is such that it`s hard to zero in on frequency by the sound alone, lacking any residual carrier, but it seems `off` when tuned to 6935.00 exactly. Only during spoken bit can I approximate the frequency, about ``call the FCC``, and this not being respectable radio. ``You have been listening to Medicate [??] Radio`` and off at 0203* altho traces of tones or music were heard in following minute. These logs between 0120 and 0203* ID it properly as: Renegade Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,35662.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, June 24 at 1203, carrier still on here, weaker than 5025 Cuba, presumed SIBC. On 90m, only carrier is 3260, perhaps PNG. It`s already too late here past sunrise 1115 UT, but which is now inching slightly later per day; won`t reach 1200 until September (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1883 monitoring: confirmed Friday June 23 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.15v-CUSB, very good! Much better strength than usual here on this frequency (other signals are above average too this evening, e.g. 9420 Greece).

Not confirmed Saturday June 24 at 1431 on HLR 7265-CUSB: checked every few minutes between 1411 and 1500 via UTwente SDR, NO signal, just noise, so no Media Network Plus heard either before 1430 --- unlike last week when both were audible sufficiently, so off the air this week, or totally different propagation? The rather short skip distance from Germany to Netherlands may be enhanceable by sporadic E which as RSGB Propagation reminds us, unpredictably affects frequencies as low as 7 MHz (and I think, even lower). Next:

The latter expanded from 14 to 29 minutes some weeks ago, so would no longer fit into the 2315-2330 slot anyway. Please check this Saturday!]

** U S A. (9955), Friday June 23 at 2300, checking out what`s really on this unjammed WRMI webcast: Outdated `Ask WWCR` from May about NASB still running instead of `Viva Miami`. As I mentioned before, the sked shows an unID `Noticiero` at 2315. What I really hear is the opening of Radio Libertad, claiming it`s still on the air at 7-8 pm daily (no, weekdays only). This `news` gets right down to business, stuff about opositores cubanos. The official R. Libertad broadcast shows separately on the sked allegedly not starting until 2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Friday June 23 circa 1830 on caradio, WTWW-2 is back on the air after missing several days at random afternoon chex, `Dave Ramsey Show`. Maybe will be on Saturday at 1800+ for `Theater Organ from the Ozarx`?

9475 & 5830, Saturday June 24 at 0140 check, WTWW-1 is AWOL both from day and night frequencies. 5085, WTWW-2 however is on with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, June 24 at 0156 check, WRNO is gone again from its nominal 01-04 UT schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, June 24 at 1331, WWCR at S9+20 with gospel huxter: obviously enhanced by sporadic E from usual very weak signal. But nothing on VHF. Not checked Es MUF map until 1600 when it shows only 35 MHz halfway between here and Nashville.

If I had been listening to 15825 between 1345 and 1356, unlikely would have been able to hear the co-channel USB E11 Oblique English numbers station from an unknown secret transmitter site that Ivo Ivanov reported in Bulgaria today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** ALASKA. 11885, June 22 at 1230, no signal from KNLS, and JBA carrier on 11870 during English hour. Some days 11885 is in use instead of 7355, some not; you never know which it will be, and from so far north there are wide variations in propagation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1883, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANTARCTICA [non]. 5985, June 21 at 2150 check, VG signal from BBCWS mid-winter special, Woofferton site as heard via UTwente SDR in Netherlands, family greeting. Didn`t even try for it direct here on any of three frequencies. Richard Langley, NB, will be archiving his recording of the whole thing, accessible to DXLD yg members (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1883, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 11580, June 22 at 2210 check, RAE in Spanish instead of Italian --- but at least speaking with an Italian accent. 5950 which is announced as the only Spanish frequency, far too weak JBA carrier here to compare. Later I`m wondering if it was really Italian service as supposed to be, but with bits in Spanish?

7730, June 23 at 0602, RAE via WRMI already playing tango music rather than news, 0605 Japanese announcement.

11580, June 23 at 1425 check past 1448, WRMI is playing World Music, including familiar ME tunes, no announcements, rather than RAE in Spanish. This hour on the WRMI skedgrid never got labeled RAE Spanish, but had been such whenever checked all month, Monday-Saturday. Presumably a bonus, and maybe defaulted to WM which occupied this hour previously, if there was a missing file for today; or canceled? Only time will tell (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BENIN. 1566, June 23 at 0446, JBA carrier still at 0502, presumed TWR. Even weaker than when I heard it June 21 at 0353-0412. On globe I refine the true bearing to 76 degrees; Parakou is slightly north of central Benin. If this carrier is audible in Oklahoma and AB/BC, it may well be heard all over North America; go for it! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4885.02, June 23 at 0206, JBA carrier vs hi QRN level; also at 0451 when I measure it slightly on hi side, and still at 0558.

RÃdio Clube do ParÃ, BelÃm, had been the strongest and most reliable ZY on 60m, and usually on all night, but on June 19 there were reports in the radioescutas group that station had been off the air since June 16 as it was facing fines of 50 kiloreais per day, in some kind of complicated political dispute about who really controls the station.

4885 is one of those frequencies with more than one Brazilian tropical station, the other being Rdif. Acreana, Rio Branco, with nominal sked in WRTH 2017 as 0900-0400, but both were double-daggered as inactive. So am I hearing its carrier now, or is Parà coming back? Suspect the latter, as both Dave Valko and Anker Petersen had previously reported Parà on 4885.02 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11857.39vv, June 22 at 0551, JBM signal presumed R. Aparecida, which is varying more widely now, and won`t settle down as I try to measure it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11934.930, June 22 at 0553, soft music, 0555 full ID with SW frequencies, claiming 24-hour service, except I can`t catch the name. Rudolf Grimm, Brasil, says it`s no longer called RÃdio RB2, but RÃdio Evangelizar. Also applies to 9725- and 6040+ from Curitiba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, June 23 at 0449, VP robotic talk, can`t even be sure of language in noise level, but could well be French. Same audible slightly weaker on 2598-USB. Canadian Coastguard schedule as in DXLD 16-43 shows both as VCF Les Escoumins, QC, from two different QC transmitter sites, Natashquan on 2598 and La VerniÃre on 2749, both with their final transmissions starting at 0437, not resuming until 0847 (tho other stations are back from 0737/0740) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, June 23 at 0453, R. Rebelde is on at S9+30 but just barely modulated. By 0600 still undermodulated but better, with resounding timesignal ending 32 seconds late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, WRMI, Thu June 22 at 2213, `Voice of the Report of the Week`, talking about his reception on 7730. Thu 22-23 airing now shows on the WRMI 9955 skedgrid, but of more interest I notice some changes despite effective date at top not touched since March 26.

`Radio Libertad` is now only at 2330-2400 M-F and sure to be jammed. But preceding it now at 2315-2330 M-F is a `Noticiero`, but from what source? Will need to try to hear it, probably on unjammed webcast. Some other local produxions on 9955, presumably by Cuban exiles:

`Bajo el Sol de Miami`, Tue 2200-2230, Sat 2230-2300
`Michael MÃndez Show`, Sun 2200-2230 & `Trova Libre` 2300-2330
`Las Noches con Mirka`, Wed & Fri 2100-2200

** U S A. 9475, June 22 at 2215, WTWW-1 SFAW is S9+40 but suptorted modulation. -2 & -3 continue to be absent afternoons from 9930 and 12105. 5085, WTWW-2, however is on with music circa 0200 UT Fri June 23, but not late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6055, June 22 at 0056, another check for the unID VP signal I had previously; now there are sporadic carriers spuriously out of the very strong 6060 Habana transmitter, in addition to its incessant splash. But the first unID was quite different, continuous: ``6055, June 18 at 0048, JBA signal with talk, where there is normally nothing. What could it be?`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
