Not FB, but twitter is where ADC has publicized Spectres of SW

https://twitter.com/magnet_mountain

As tipped by roger in germany.

Maybe she will have more to say about this SW broadcast.

Logs
** CUBA. 6000, April 24 at 0600, RHC English S9+10 but suptorted; 6100
S9+20 undermodulated; 6165 weak S8-S9 just barely modulated; while
only 6060 is any good, S9+20; and 5040 is off. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9580, April 24 at 0149, CRI English relay is
S9+10/20 but just barely modulated; // 9570 via ALBANIA is weaker but
louder, not unusually (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 5980, April 24 at 0152, TV Martà is already on after
finding it last night until 0300*, so is it a 2-hour span? The jammer
noise has already found it, underaudible. And yes, while this is
talking, the original Radio Martà frequencies are musicking and NOT
//: 6030, 7335 and 7365.

Then I go looking at the website and find this notice, affirming that
I had discovered the new TV-on-SW service on its first night, local
April 22; it`s 5 hours long, M-F 22-03 UT Tue-Sat, which means it
blots any chance of R. Chaski, Perà if it is still active until 00* or
01*? April 24 at 2308, there is TVM already but this early poor S5-S8.

https://www.radiotelevisionmarti.com/a/televisi%C3%B3n-mart%C3%AD-podr%C3%A1-escucharse-en-onda-corta/237060.html

``TelevisiÃn Martà podrà escucharse en onda corta --- abril 23, 2019
--- Noticiero Radio Martà logo - Compartir - Ver comentarios

La Oficina de Transmisiones a Cuba (OCB) estrenà el 22 de abril una
nueva alternativa para acceder desde la isla a la programaciÃn de
TelevisiÃn MartÃ.

Desde las seis de la tarde hasta las once de la noche, de lunes a
viernes, los noticieros de TelevisiÃn Martà podrÃn escucharse en la
radio por onda corta en la frecuencia de 5980 KHz.

TomÃs Regalado, director de OCB, dijo que se trata de una iniciativa
histÃrica que sirve para cumplir con la misiÃn de llegar a todas
partes de Cuba.

âEsto nos da una oportunidad de diseminar el mensaje de TelevisiÃn
Martà no solamente a travÃs de las ondas de satÃlite, de la Internet,
de âEl CaÃonazoâ y los DVDs que estamos enviando, sino tambiÃn a
travÃs del sonido. Las bandas sonoras de la televisiÃn se van a
escuchar en la onda cortaâ, dijo Regalado.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII. 5000, April 24 at 1250, WWVH with new hourly announcement
about some US military exercise, but JBA under WWV; I quickly switch
to 10000 where the two are about equal but can`t really copy it with
additional QRM from LSB intruder sounding Spanish. At 1252 WWVH is
still announcing its phone number, implying, why are you trying to
hear us on a SW radio?? BTW, many years ago, I offered to provide a
daily hot-DX tip during a WWV minute, but they weren`t interested!
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.9, April 24 at 1958 on caradio, ``KC`s rock
alternative`` non-ID with CCI. This is no doubt another translator in
OKC, per WTFDA FM Database, audiblizing the HD-2 of 92.5 KOMA, i.e.
K225BN, 200 watts at 267.7 meters HAAT, format Modern Rock, slogan
allegedly ``The Edge``: vs the only other Okie on 92.9, 100 kW KBEZ
Tulsa, ``The Drive``. This is an increasingly employed workaround to
get a subsidiary ``HD`` format onto a real open FM radio signal.

Per coordinates, K225BN is on exactly the same tower as 95.3 K237GE
making KOKC 1520 an FM station, also audible at same marginal level -
-- but how about in OKC itself where it`s adjacent to 95.1 100 kW
KQCV-FM gospel huxter also serving the OKC market, from Shawnee CoL?
Axually its site is beyond Shawnee, east of Seminole so it puts as
much signal into Tulsa as OKC, but is also easily heard in Enid vs
Wichita (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 23 at 2242, again no signal from VOT during
English hour to North America. Well, there`s always German in the next
hour? NO, none of that either today at 2302 and 2330 chex.

Do any other VOT broadcasts have this dismal track record, or is it
just a zzzzzzzzz middle-of-the-night thing at Emirler? Last year
someone suggested that instead of professional operators, TRT was
employing kids from the neighborhood for this task; no kidding?

9830, April 24 at 2228, VOT English is back on, but poor S6-S9. And no
German after 2300.

15450, April 24 at 1323, VOT English JBA at sign-off mentioning
correct frequency and maybe correct time too; and pulling the plug
immediately. Will this 1230 broadcast USward ever build up to
listenable level here? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1978 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday April 24
at 2100 on WRMI 9955: once again upcut from ID & IS runup, ``--- with
World of Radio 1978 ---`` I wonder who`s that talking? Good signal,
much better than simulcast by 7490v WBCQ, so weak on the PL-880 with
reelout, that I can`t determine how many seconds apart. Next:

0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [or 1979?]
2200 UT Friday WRMI 9955 [NEW; or 1979?]

I do plan to record next WOR 1979, late UT Thursday.

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 5130.5, April 24 at 2310, JBA carrier yet stronger
than the JJBBA carrier on 3264.9 which is about equal to the JBA
carrier on 7595 from UZBEKISTAN. These WBCQ and Tashkent frequencies
are the ones indirectly publicized on disgraced FB by Amanda Dawn

scenario? The other `BCQs on 7490+ and 9330+ are quite stronger but
tied up with other programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, April 24 at 1837, JBA carrier from WTWW-1 at midday,
checked here after finding 9475 AWOL --- good news for Swaziland, but
not for the dead racist in Laporte. Ted does it again! But surely not
sabotage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5990, April 24 at 0559-0602*, S9+10 open carrier.
Nothing scheduled now but reminiscent of China-via-Cuba on 5990 at 23
-01. If one were foolish enough to believe HFCC, it could be RRI
Menado, Indonesia in English! Or CNR in Tibetan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** BRAZIL. 11780, April 23 at 1427, RNA with YL hosting call-in, 11:27
timecheck, S9+10. Unusual to be so audible at this daypart rather than
afternoon/evening. I check for other ZYs on 25m: 11815 has a het, one
of which is likely RBC, vs Yamata and/or Urumqi; 11855.7, JBA carrier
is certainly R. Aparecida.

AFAIK, the only other Brazilian still active on this band is 11895,
Super Rede Boa Vontade (RBV), Porto Alegre, often reported in European
evenings, but I *never* hear it when I`m tuning earlier or later
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BULGARIA. 5900, April 23 at 0249, TOMBS at S9/+10, and not on 6055
new frequency as Ivo Ivanov had reported April 22 for 2000-0300, altho
I have a JBA carrier on 6055 from unknown source, nothing listed and
far too early for Japan at noon.

Ivo reaffirms that Brother HyStairical was on new 6055 earlier by
2100, and Stephen Wood in New England had him yesterday April 21 at
2130 on 6055. So unknown yet what time they really switch to 5900
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 2940.132, April 23 at 0556 UT, music detectable on ~S9
signal better than usual, but storm noise level peaks S9+20. Of
course, it`s HJNT, Radio Huellas, Cali, long-running second harmonic
of 1470.066 as already identified elsewhere, but I would still like to
hear an ID, myself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 23 at 0601, this RHC English is off again, like
5040, while 6060 continues VG; 6100 & 6165 are sufficient but
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 5980, April 23 at 0250, surprised to find strong S9+20
signal in Spanish here, discussing baseball, a staple of Radio MartÃ
--- but it`s *not* // 6030, 7335, 7365! Could it be RHC or WRMI on a
new frequency? No //s there either. 0253 topic changes to Cannes Film
Festival; something from Europe? Surely not Spain, or even France.

0256 plugs noticiero lunes a viernes from Radio TelevisiÃn MartÃ, and
more IDs for RTVM, including a secure web address for access anywhere
in world (i.e. Cuba) if you erase your history when finished. Sure
wish I could have copied that; what is it? 0259 once again mentions
`Noticiero TV Marti` and cuts off at 0300.

So we have a secret? new transmission from Greenville not of RM but of
TVM soundtrack, starting when, and regular, or experiment? NO jamming,
altho Cuba does ramp up 5980 noise well before nominal *0700 of RM.

Such an adjacency to 5985 would be unacceptable if WRMI were on there
from 0200 as registered available, rather than really not until *0330
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, April 23 at 0601, no signal from ORTM, which some days
has been running well before 0600. So continues unreliably. Also
reports indicate that the two CRI relay transmitters are off again
after their revival a few weeks ago. Is anyone hearing those? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9700, April 23 at 0604, RNZI L&C in news, and no CCI
audible from Romania in German this semihour only. Of course for us,
propagation from S Pacific is much superior than from Europe (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, April 22 at 2201, 2218, REE is still in Castilian
instead of English even tho it`s Monday. I guess they haven`t got over
Easter yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 22 at 2207, NO signal from VOT English to North
America, yet another failure. This time I check the three frequencies
scheduled in previous hours in case its transmitter be stuck overtime
elsewhere ---- 9620, 9635, 11615 --- but nothing on those either.

9830, recheck April 22 at 2343, NOW it`s on with Turkish songs,
S9+10/20, and as expected 2351 GERMAN very brief headline(s), sign off
giving two phone numbers, nothing about frequencies! and 2352 into IS
music; 2356 stops and restarts, shortly ID in another language,
Portuguese? music and cut off 2358* --- just as if this were a
completely normal transmission.

Now I`m guessing the sloppyrator at Emirler thinx they are supposed to
run 9830 at 23-24 UT with whatever program come over the feed from
Ankara, instead of 22-23 UT; confused about summer timing? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. Re WORLD OF RADIO at 0300 UT Monday April 22 on
WBCQ, John Carver replies: ``Glenn. Yes. 5130 was dead air for WOR and
Hobart Radio. Nothing after John Lightning ended his show. John``

WORLD OF RADIO 1978 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday April 23 at 0100
on WRMI 7780, fair. Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [or 1979?]
2200 UT Friday WRMI 9955 [NEW; or 1979?]

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475-, April 23 at 0248, WTWW-1 still on day frequency as
well it might be, still blasting in at S9+40, while night frequency
5830 is vacant. But by 0558, 5830 is still off and 9475 has faded to
JBA carrier, still at 0623 final check. At 1404, 9475 is the one,
probably having run all night. SAWA WTWW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, April 23 at 0553, dead air at S9-S6: it`s Tuesday,
time for the weekly anomalies from WWCR; this time 5890 is quite
weaker than 5935 with DGS modulation at S9+10/20. What about the other
two transmitters? 4840 is also modulating with something, S9+20; while
3215, supposedly silent at this hour, is S9+20 of open carrier. Is
WWCR doing this deliberately for some reason, wasting hundreds of kW,
or some glitch in automation programming, turning on two extra
transmitters when they are not supposed to be running? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
