Well, at least they have an international service unlike Canada... which has little more than a time signal on SW.

And word has it that there is a proposed budget cut at NISTâ so WWV and WWVH might be on the chopping block...

Imagine 5, 10, and 15 MHz with a religious broadcaster holding court: âAt the tone, itâll be time for Jahweh!!!â

** CUBA. 6000, Aug 14 at 0552, this RHC English is dead air, while 6165 and 6100 have some modulation, 6060 with full modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Aug 15 at 0618, S9+10 of dead air as RHC has failed to close this transmitter down at scheduled 0600*. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, further chex of the Radio Martà vs Radio Habana Cuba collision, Aug 13: at 1907, RM alone not jammed yet; at 1926 the RHC carrier is on, making a SAH of about 8 Hz â wonder which of them is further off-frequency? They add up to S9+10. At 1929, the RM theme and promo, periodically fading way down and back up. 1931, RHC French modulation starts late, JIP without IS or sign-on. 2004, still mixing with SAH; 2128 RM amid newscast from TelevisiÃn Martà minus the video, and RHC seems JBA underneath. 2300 recheck, everything is off.

Ivo Ivanov says the new RM sked on 11860 is 14-23 & 07-10 UT, latter in the middle of the night, unconfirmed yet.

11860, next day May 14 at 1417, RM is on and now there is jamming, somewhat less than on // 11930. 2033, RHC is atop and no jamming; today they are much closer together than 8 Hz, making only a very slow SAH of less than 1 Hz. 2317 everything off except residual pulse jamming continuing vs nothing, also still at 0135 August 15.

1196-, May 15 at 2000 check now RM and RHC are equal strength and modulation making a horrible collision, without jamming, and SAH back to about 8 Hz. (SAHs in this range I estimate by counting the flutters over and over as each second tix away; could be plus or minus 1).

It remains to be heard which station will give in first and move, if ever. The question is whether IBB really knew RHC was already on 11860 and went there as a deliberate provocation, also forcing RHC to jam itself at the same time, or quit jamming. Meanwhile, both stations lose their audiences (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1943, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CZECHIA [non]. 9955, Aug 15 at 1214, still past 1219, open carrier/dead air from WRMI when R. Prague in English is supposed to be emanating. Not even default to some World Music fill (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 9865, Aug 14 at 1333, this is the only AIR frequency JB audible for the Independence Day specials, vs local thunder forcing use of indoor longwire.

11620, Aug 15 at 0135, of all the possible AIR Independence special frequencies provided by Jose Jacob, this is the only one somewhat audible, VP with flutter around S6-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 710, Aug 15 at 1143, full ID for La Ranchera de CuauhtÃmoc, 1144 TC as 5:43, in newscast. That`s XEDP in Chihuahua, not using its off-frequency transmitter today.

I`d rather be asleep but since I`m not, a quick scan of the lower band finds Spanish presumed usual Mexicans on all these frequencies: 540, 550, 560, 610, 650, 660, 700, 710, 720, 730, 740-, 750, 760, 780, 790-, 800 --â widely varying strengths and most are about to fade out.

740- is surely XEQH TorreÃn, previously IDed as the off-frequency one tearing up KRMG, R. FÃrmula. 790- is surely XENT, La Paz BCS, with LAH vs US stations, as heard in April, another R. FÃrmula --- coincidental lax engineering standards at this network? Soon losing out to Rogers AR 790.0. I get 780 briefly by tightly nulling nearby KSPI, clues in news that it is XESFT in Tamaulipas.

870, expect daytimer XETAR in Chihuahua to come on at 1200, but no sign of it by 1202; just too late for SRS, or has it evacuated for FM only? That would be quite a shame. Our sunrise today: 1149 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, August 13 at 2138, JBA carrier already, maybe trace of modulation, as XEPPM is suspected on air even earlier than skedgrid now acknowledges, from 2200 instead of 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, Aug 15 at 0331, JBA carrier as I have not closed down all local noise sources but presumed the anti-Christ, pro-Yahweh pirate, Station YHWH which at least Rick Barton, central Arizona keeps hearing almost every night around this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 9965, Aug 15 at 1214, T8WH praise music with IADs --- intermittent audio dropouts; S9 to S9+10 much louder than neighbor 9955 WRMI with dead Czech air. Aoki shows 12-14 M-F is scheduled by LeSEA only as News/Music. Is it satellite or internet feed that is defective? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1942 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday August 14 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG. Unchecked, presumed inaudible Tue Aug 14 at 2030 on WRMI 7780 & 5950.

WORLD OF RADIO 1943 contents: Antarctica, Australia and non, Bahamas, Brasil, Cuba and non, Indonesia, Korea South, Kuwait, MÃxico, PerÃ, Philippines non, Romania, South Carolina non, Tibet non, USA, convention, publication, and the propagation outlook

WORLD OF RADIO 1943 monitoring: ready for first airing Tuesday August 14 at 2130 on WRMI 5950, but inaudible except for a JBA carrier checked as late as possible, 2158. ``Probably``, I said for WBCQ 9330v at 2330 Tue Aug 14, but no show; maybe tomorrow.

We should be on for Wednesday and remain on"`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1943, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1700, Aug 15 at 1203 UT, hefty promo for ``Banda Trece, mÃs mÃsica, mÃs deportes`` --- seems to me more of one would logically require less of the other on one single station, i.e. KKLF Richardson TX (The Metroplex); I see its unusual X-band power is 5/1 kW --- why not 10 kW day like most of the others?

Logs
** BRAZIL. Reporting about the closure of RTM, August 9 at 0150, I said ``But can`t hear any carrier around 5940v with heavy splash from 5935 WWCR``. However, I was misremembering its 50mb frequency â 5965 for RTM, not 5940- Voz MissionÃria. I don`t think 5965 has been reported for some time, certainly not by me. However, via swlingpost, a lengthy translation of a discussion earlier in the day about quitting SW, said ``We had ended the 31 meters transmission, now weâre ending the 25 meters, 49 meters also, and we are so sorry about that.`` This seems to imply that 9530 had been terminated earlier, but 5965 was being turned off the same date as 11735.

The latest report I can find of 5965 was from Claudio Galaz, Chile, this year: ``** BRAZIL. 5965, R. TRANSMUNDIAL. Mayo 7. 1013-2028 UT. Hombre predica en portuguÃs. SINPO: 35343 con seÃal sin siseos de otra emisora. ÂEWTN, de 5970, fuera del aire?`` He probably meant until 1028 UT. Maybe they did not run it in the evenings when I am listening? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Aug 13 at 0545, this RHC English is S9+10 but JBM; the rest of the Cuban Five are better to varying degrees: 6165, 6060, 6000, 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. Happy birthday, dead Fidel! As promised, OCB has activated an additional Radio Martà frequency today August 13, 11860. It`s VG S9+10 at 1421, no jamming yet, nor at 1620 recheck, unlike // 11930 below wall-of-noise, and // 13605 atop wall-of noise. Goodbye to any chance of hearing Yemen [non] on 11860, but which has hardly been more than a JBA carrier here lately at any hour.

Probably started at 1400, but how long will it run? Will RM defer to RHC, which since April per EiBi has already been using 11860 at 1930-2300 for Europe? RHC is never in HFCC, so how could IBB know that? HFCC A-18 just updated today Aug 13, and NO registration showing yet for GB on 11860. However, the other 25m frequency, 11930, runs all the way until 2400.

If OCB were really serious about getting into Cuba on SW, they would employ multiple frequencies, diluting the jamming on any one of them. Besides more idle Greenvilles, they could buy lots of spare time on stations such as WRMI, WHRI --- not that I recommend it, which would lead to much greater collateral jampollution of our SW bands! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Aug 13 at 0105 & 0147, JBM music, at S9+5/10. Must be XEPPM, on air but with usual modulation problem. Nothing else scheduled in our evening, no longer even Vatican, nor China.

Henrik Klemetz reports in SW Bulletin Aug 12:

`` Radio EducaciÃn in Mexico has a new ID for their SW service, hitherto known as Radio EducaciÃn onda corta. SeÃal Cultura MÃxico, and/or Cultura MÃxico SeÃal Internacional is on the air on 6185, at 2300-0555. There are several web pages giving further info on this service, one of them being http://www.radioeducacion.gob.mx/culturamexico/index.php
The new slogan has been in use for about one year. They are interested in reports, which will be answered by online QSL, said Ms Pilar Cruz in the 24th Encuentro Diexista, held 27-28 July in San LuÃs PotosÃ, MÃxico. "SintonÃa libre" is a letterbox programme aired Tues., Thurs., and Sun. at times given at
http://www.radioeducacion.edu.mx/carta-programatica-del-mes
The international service can be heard online``

I.e.: martes 2100-2130; jueves 1915-1945; domingo 2245-2315 CDT/CST - now = UT: Wed 0200, Fri 0015, Mon 0345. That monthly program sked grid still dated July, shows span in UT as 2200-0455, not as above. Normally 6185 would quit around 0500 UT during DST.

** U S A. 5950 // much stronger 9395, Aug 13 at 0109, VOA news is starting at flexible time via WRMI Oldies stream, until 0113 (instead of Argentina To The World on weekdays). Includes two AP voice reports and only one from a VOA correspondent. Mike Cooper, Atlanta, August 6, opined in DXLD 18-32 and quoted on WOR 1942:

``VOA NEWS IS SECOND-HAND --- Voice of America seems to
have largely abdicated responsibility for original reporting in its hourly
newscasts, though there is now a new nondescript news sounder.
(Whoopee!) The lead story on the 1600 newscast today was verbatim
news copy from Reuters, followed by audio from a Reuters television
correspondent. After this report, there were three different Associated
Press audio reports on different topics. The amount of time devoted to
these Reuters and AP audio reports far outweighed the minimal
amount of news copy read by the news anchor.

It's hard to see how heavy reliance on audio reports from third-party
news services (which have multiple worldwide news outlets as their
clients) satisfies the requirement in VOA's charter that "VOA will
serve as a consistently reliable and authoritative source of news." By
regurgitating news reports airing on many other TV and radio outlets,
VOA is no longer a "source of news." The last vestiges of original VOA
reporting can be found in the half-hour news programs to Africa and
Asia and in "International Edition," but even these programs contain
their share of useless fluff.

How can VOA justify itself as distinguishable from commercial outlets
if it is going to use the same material they air?``

** U S A. 5050, UT Monday August 13 at 0120, WWRB is still on in non-daily broadcast, awful humbuzz louder than the gospel-huxter modulation. What a loss! May be totally the fault of the program provider, but Dave lets it run that way (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Aug 13 at 1418, the WJHR gospel huxter is audible only at S0-S2; not always audible at all, so it is erratically on air or just due to propagation?

Benn Kobb says, ``Hi Glenn, DXLD 1831 included a remark from WJHR, Milton FL (via Australian DX News) that "We just moved the station to a new location and installed a new directional Yagi antenna". Such changes typically require formal application to FCC. You asked: "So what is the new location and has the FCC authorized it or even been notified?" My inquiry to the FCC International Bureau, which licenses domestic SW stations, was answered on August 10, 2018 as copied below.
- - -
"Mr. Kobb, We have communicated with George Mock of WJHR and he states that they have not made any changes. Tom Lucey, FCC"``

Altho it was recently received as an e-QSL, the remark might have been written years ago, unspecified. It seems that FCC remains unconcerned that as is obvious to any casual monitor, WJHR cannot be running the required 50 kW minimum power (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15665-15670-15675, Mon Aug 13 at 1417, WINB DRM is certainly back on. The noise is very strange, however, a much different, ``rougher`` sound on the lower side than the upper side. Maybe has something to do with splitting/combining data and audio transmissions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Aug 13 at 0123, praise music in English instead of VOV relay via WHRI, which is supposed to run daily at 0000-0200; 0133 still music, instrumental (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6920-6947 approx., August 13 at 0126, DRMish noise again in middle of pirate band, and no pirates anywhere around. After my last report of it August 4-5, Mark Taylor, WI, replied: ``Your 6925 - 6935 - 6945 Unidentified from last night was also heard here and in several other places according to people on the HF Underground pirate chat. It sounded more like a utility than DRM here. No one I am aware of tried to decode it as DRM. It was there all evening, so you`re right that it wasn't local`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10570-USB, Aug 13 at 0134, 2-way in Spanish, poor & very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1723 UT August 13
