Logs
** ALGERIA [non]. 9655, April 21 at 2152, French, not Arabic and
certainly not Qur`an from RTA relay via FRANCE, contrary to this:

``SWLDXBulgaria News April 6-7 (publications â19126-â19150)
Reception of Telediffusion d'Algerie on April 6:
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/04/reception-of-telediffusion-dalgerie-ib.html
2100-2159 9655 ISS 500 kW / 160 deg to CEAf Arabic Holy Quran px``

About equal to another French signal on 9650, GUINEA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, April 21 at 2158, RHC Spanish, S9+40 but distorted,
more so than // 11760 with degraded program audio. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5900, April 22 at 0541, LA music poor S9, undermodulated.
Something new from Bulgaria? No! It`s a new leapfrog from RHC, // 6100
over 6000, which are S9+40 and S9+30 respectively, another 100 kHz
lower. This means that 6100 and 6000 now have to be from the same
transmitter site among the three employed by RHC. Contrary to Ivo:

0500-0600 on 5040 BAU 100 kW / 083&263 to Cuba English
0500-0600 on 6000 QVC 250 kW / 010 deg to ENAm English
0500-0600 on 6060 BAU 100 kW / 010 deg to ENAm English
0500-0600 on 6100 BAU 100 kW / 310 deg to WNAm English
0500-0600 on 6165 BAU 100 kW / 340 deg to WNAm English

Recently it had been clear that 6000 was the odd one out, often
closing earlier than the others, but now 6000 must be Bauta, or 6100
must have switched to QuivicÃn.

Another way to compare sites is whether there be an echo between
different frequencies, but I have been reluctant to draw such
conclusions as a slight delay could also occur between receivers due
to DSP. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15410, April 22 at 1419, Chinese at S5-S8 with
flutter, OOFSOB, stronger than similar signal on 15590, CRI English.
Aoki/NDXC shows 15410 this hour only is CRI Chinese via Kashi-Saiba
site. Per HFCC both are on 500 kW 308-degree beams, but 15590 is
Urumqi instead.

15110, April 22 at 1419, also Chinese at S7-S9, but not // 15410 since
this is CNR1 jamming or VOA Chinese this hour only via Philippines.

9180, April 22 at 1432, Chinese at S3-S6 seems // 15110 and not 15410,
i.e. CNR1 jammer here vs Sound of Hope, Taiwan. This is the only WOOB
jammer found in a 9.0-15.0 MHz bandscan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 13735, April 22 at 1417, S6-S8 of dead air --- HFCC shows it
has to be VIRI in Russian at 1320-1420, 500 kW, 336 degrees also
USward from Sirjan. Was the whole hour dead, or finished a bit early?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 9700, April 22 at 0534, VG S9+10/20, SSOB in
English, BBCWS programme relay about waste management. RNZI QSY from
9630 as I recommended due to Brasil 9630.50v het --- but which tonight
is a JBA carrier all by itself. Schedule now shows this as first day
of new frequency, 0459-0658, and no other changes:
https://www.radionz.co.nz/international/listen

For a fleeting moment at tune-in, I wondered if this were Romania,
which has been here in past. It`s still sked on 9700-AM for 0600-0630
German, which could well be a collision problem, unchecked here yet.
(RRI 0530 English is on 6015, 7325-DRM, 15410, 17760) (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN. 9560, April 22 at 1429, S3-S5 open carrier, soon starting
upbeat theme music and Japanese announcement. Aoki shows Furusato no
Kaze for North Korean abductees, from Tamsui district (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565-CW, April 22 at 1412, K6FRC beacon from Patterson,
California is JBA vs CODAR. I check the 13550-13570 HIFER band just
about every day, and this is the first time K6FRC or any other beacon
has been detected since Feb 20 and before that Dec 19. Notice how
close these are to two-month intervals, so I wonder if K6FRC be only
sporadically active. How about all the others listed --- on and not
propagating, or off? That other Californian, with 100 kW, KVOH would
surely be audible if on 13 MHz band now instead of stuck 4+ MHz higher
on 17775; but target is beyond OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1978 monitoring: confirmed Sunday April 21 at
2130 on WRMI 7780, very poor S7-S8.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 22 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+10/20;
preceded at 0129 by very outdated ID as ``Son-power Radio on 5850,
7475, 9395``!

Also confirmed UT Monday April 22 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair

Also confirmed UT Monday April 22 from 0302 on Area 51 webcast --- but
checking WBCQ 5130.42v at 0320, vs storm noise from Kansas, S9+10 of
dead air! Was entire WOR thus? Recheck webcast and still running OK
there.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 22 after 0330 on WRMI 9955, poor S6-S7.

freshest new airings are on weekends]

** U S A. 5085, April 22 at 0132, WTWW-2 with S9+40 of dead air;

Logs
** CHINA. 11640, April 21 at 1333, CNR1 with Sunday-evening cultural
show playing contemporary Western classical orchestral music, S7-S9
with flutter // 11785. Aoki/NDXC pinpoints site for this 11640 jamming
as Kashi-Saiba in EAST TURKISTAN, 10-14 scheduling matching that of
Radio Taiwan International in Chinese on 11640 (which I am not hearing
at all). Kashi/Kashgar of course also radiates countless
``legitimate`` CRI transmissions.

11440, April 21 at 1330, very poor mix of two carriers, seems matching
11785, i.e. CNR1 jamming as per Aoki/NDXC, vs Sound of Hope via Maoli
site, Taiwan.

10960, April 21 at 1336, JBA music. Aoki/NDXC has this as a Sound of
Hope relay of RFA during long hours in Chinese, from Pingtung, Taiwan
site, rather than Maoli for many others of SOH iself; but this could
more likely also be CNR1 jammer.

In a complete bandscan from 10.9 to 15.0 MHz, these two are the only
WOOB jam frequencies found (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, April 21 at 1314, RHC music at S4-S5 on this second
harmonic of 6000 which is S9/S9+10. Wolfgang Bueschel points out that
when 11700 and 11850 are both on the air, 2200-0500, they can produce
a leapfrog mixing product on 12000. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
In the past, 12000 has also been an intentional fundamental of RHC,
but not currently (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, April 21 at 1317, RHC is JBM here, while 15140 is OK.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6965-USB, April 21 at 0030, songs at S9+10, and at
0032 as expected, ``Wolverine Radio`` ID, still going past 0100+. Many
more logs here covering 0015-0121:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,53129.0.html
Not so obvious theme tonight seems to be ``vocal expression``, ending
with SSTV image of girl whispering into another`s ear (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UKRAINE [non]. Answer to my query about the RUI announcer: ``Hi
Glenn, The male announcer you refer to is, I believe, Andrew Bondar
http://www.nrcu.gov.ua/en/prog-presenter.html?id=183
(Alan Roe, Teddington, UK, WOR iog via DXLD)``

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1978 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday April 21 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+30. Also confirmed UT Sun
Apr 21 at 0327 about 4 minutes into, so started circa 0323 on WA0RCR,
1860-AM, S9+20. Next:

** U S A. I missed this week`s AWWW on WBCQ, UT Sat Apr 20 at 0000 UT,
but John Carver fills us in:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490 after some dead air and fill
music. Allan and Angela in the studio talking about the IRS. First
phone call at 0005 followed immediately by a call from Dave in Indiana
at 0007 continuing the discussion about the IRS. Allan maintains that
the IRS is illegal and wasn't ratified by all the states. Allan is a
little riled up this evening and goes into a rant. At the height of
the rant while he's waving his arms he manages to hit Angela who's
sitting next to him. Phone calls are hot and heavy this evening.
Ramsey calls at 0031. He gets Allan to state that he's been seeing
doctors this week and he's doing fine. reading of emails at 0053.
Closing prayer at 0059. Show was off the air at 0101 with no talk of
the station this evening. 7490 was off the air at 0102 after a bit of
music. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+, UT Sun Apr 21 at 0100, Pirate Joe opening his
`Shortwave Saturday Night` on WBCQ, previewing topix in next three
hours, says he is on 7490 & 3265, the latter, as always, barely
audible here. Much needed left-wing counterpoint to AW; at 0125 he`s
finishing the ``14 points of fascism``, alluding to how much those
apply to Drumpf`s America.

5130.443, UT Sun Apr 21 at 0108, WBCQ S9+10/20, better than usual on
this frequency; Larry Will & Jane with `Lumpy Gravy Show`, also
claiming to be on 3265! But this was ``live April 19 on 3265`` i.e.
the night before, UT Saturday, according to further comments altho not
on the WBCQ program schedule other than now, his regular spot on
5130v; also makes left-wing comments.

Too much going on as usual on Saturday nights: not only these two, but
Mighty KBC, Wolverine Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VENEZUELA [non]. 9955, UT Sun Apr 21 at 0115, WRMI cutting off `Ask
WWCR` [sic], before it quite finishes in order to start `Acontecer
Venezolano`, which is incredibly the only ``clandestine`` broadcast
concerning this country. Host starts making the case that there is a
schism between the Maduro faxion and the harder-line Chavistas about
how to proceed; and that US & Russia together are trying to organize
some kind of transition. Is he imagining all this?

Altho this show has been on WRMI for a long time, there is no mention
of it on the Programming page! At least not to be found by searching
the text, rather than images. Only two scheduled times on the grid, UT
Friday 0000-0015 & UT Sunday 0115-0130, both on 9955. I`ve not caught
name of the guy who does it, but obviously safely in exile (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** ARMENIA. 9300, April 19 at 1328, JBA talk. Aoki/NDXC shows the
complex schedule of TWR India, via Yerevan-Gavar site, this 1315
quarter-hour on day 6 = Friday as in the Kur language, shared with
San, Mun and Kui depending on the DOW. Full name of language per WRTH
is Kurukh, which was on 9365 in B-18. EiBi language list shows: ``KUR
Kurukh/Kurux: India-Chhatisgarh, Jharkhand, W. Bengal (2m) [kru]``.
Recently this was on 9330 by punchup mistake; not a good idea with the
Superstation imminent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.240, April 19 at 1330, RHC knocked itself off-frequency
today, as you never know whether it will stick to 13740.00. // 13700
is still accompanied by weak parasitic spurs approx. 28.3 kHz above
and below. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

A couple of listeners have objected to my frequent remark. Many of the
wrongs result from sloppyration rather than worn-out equipment. All I
can say, as on WORLD OF RADIO 1978, is that if and when RHC stops
messing up, there will no longer be any reason to utter it (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN. 7205, April 19 at 0320, singing and drumming at S9, 0329
Arabic talk mentioning Sudan, 0334 instrumental music. Sudan Radio,
domestic service frequency, no doubt under new management. Beware,
that Aoki shows an overlap of Sudan starting at 0210, and PBS
Xinjiang, Urumqi, East Turkistan, in Uyghur until 0257. EiBi, OTOH
shows only a 3-minute overlap, *0257- and -0300* respectively (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 17640, April 19 at 1557, BST-1 caradio lands on B-B-C-
chimes, frequency still in memory for when MWV used it in B-18. Should
have been listenable for this 1-hour of BBCWS in English via ASCENSION
to Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1978 contents: Afghanistan, Antarctica,
China, Cuba, Denmark, Finland and non, France, Indonesia, Iran,
Malaysia, Oklahoma, Oman, Romania, Solomon Islands, Sudan, Ukraine,
UK, USA; publications; digital TV and radio; and the propagation
outlook.

Completed a day earlier than before, at 0205 UT Friday April 19.
Hamburger Lokalradio will still run 1977 at 0630 Sat as they had not
aired it yet, and then 1978 for 1430 Sat & 1030 Sun.

The shortwave broadcasts should be:

0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
0130 UT Saturday WRMI 7780
0629 UT Saturday HLR 6190-CUSB Germany [1977]

** U S A. 9330.14v, April 19 at 1327, WBCQ still with TOMBS, not the
500 kW Superstation, which per John Carver, Allan Weiner said on
`Worldwide` last Friday night, would start testing in the coming week
on 9330 or 7490, to be announced in his Twits. QRX. No doubt it will
be on 9330.000 and not with Brother HyStairical, we can only hope.
Bring on the flat-earthers! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, April 19 at 0504 UT on the R75 with E-W longwire,
Mexican music, not so eclectic as to be expected from XEEP CDMX but
the SW 6185 is already off. Switching to the DX-398 for DFing at 0544
UT, now it`s WSW/ENE so that rules out XEEP and points to KIJN Farwell
TX; now I am suspecting the songs are of praise, especially with
keywords Vida, Viva, Santo and Gloria.

Trouble is, KIJN is a 10-kW direxional daytimer! But it`s well-known
as a longtime cheater running at night, In Jesus` Name -- WWJD? SS but
not religious beyond in almost same direxion is KXPL El Paso TX,
another 10 kW daytimer ND, but not such a cheater. There are other USA
SS on 1060 in NRC AM Log, none of them likely here and none religious,
in CA, NV, NC, NC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1420, April 19 at 0550 UT, super-hype voice actors (SHVA) in
Spanish with promos or ads, Mexican music, 0557 automated TC for 12,
56 = CDT. Something (else?) here in the mix is enough off-frequency to
produce a LAH. I am enjoying the perhaps temporary absence of loud
local KCRC Enid spur on 1420v, while on alternate transmitter
following power outage/surge?

Cannot copy ID at 0601 UT other than FM frequency 103.3 or 106.3.
Loops NW/SE so that rules out Mexico. No Coloradans on 1420, but the
closest likely is KBHS Hot Springs AR, more like ESE, in NRC AM Log as
U1 5000/87 watts, SS but its La Zeta FM as 105.5. Has there been a
change? Bingo! in the WTFDA FM Database:

``K292HG KBHS-1420 106.3 HOT SPRINGS AR USA 0.25 0.25 0.0 0.0 34-27-19
93-03-26 Silent //KZNG 1340. KBHS is silent`` -- silent no more.

Altho there could have been a format flip since it went to press 8+
months ago (and now sold out), NRC AM Log has only other SS on 1420 in
FL, FL, ID, none likelier here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1630, April 19 at 0605 UT, Mexican music loops NNW/SSE,
mutually nullable with KCJJ Iowa, making a medium SAH. The only such
Unitedstatesian is KRND, Fox Farm WY to the NW, confirmed by 0610 UT
with its known identity ``La Jota Mexicana`` IDs in passing.

But where is my closest 1630, KKGM Fort Worth TX? No sign of it in the
mix, off? It`s a gospel huxter in English, with a lot of music. I am
hearing such a format at 1323 UT recheck. Always helpful to tune LSB
to minimize local 1640 KZLS, especially on the way to FTW, and
oppositely to Fox Farm.

Fox Farm cannot be found on the regular Rand McNally atlas, and not
even on the 2013 large-scale version, nor in their indices! (There is a
Foxpark, SW of Laramie). Thus I am forced to seek its location online.
Fox Farm is a suburb of Cheyenne. Yet KRND address, per NRC AM Log, is
way off in Broomfield CO, between Boulder and Denver! Studio? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
