Logs
** CUBA. 12000, Jan 5 at 2236, RHC in Spanish, S5 // 13740 & 9710. Altho has used this frequency in past, not lately, and seems too strong to be harmonic of 6000, where anyway there is only a JBA carrier. Possibly that transmitter tuned up by error onto its second harmonic instead of fundamental. Or another off-schedule experiment?

11880, Jan 5 at 2240, RHC Spanish here instead of English! So // 12000, 11840 & 11760, i.a. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, Jan 6 at 1500, Denge Kurdistane talk and music briefly with asynchronous double-audio, apparent overlap during site switch, at first S8-S9, then S7-S9 with more fading, but no break in the carrier(s). No dead air this time.

I`m awaiting Ivo Ivanov`s latest take on this. His Dec 30 issue of DX Re Mix News, showed Issoudun at 15-16 as of Dec 22, but also Pridnestsrovye at 13-16 on 11600. Bulgaria site was out of the picture, but he could tell if it came back due to local-range second harmonic on 23200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11825, Jan 6 at 1503, no signal, altho TOM per latest WRMI sked is supposed to start at 1300. See also USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, Jan 6 at 1520, K6FRC Part 15 beacon ID repeating, vs CODAR. Notably this bitsignal from California is better than the JBA carrier from 17775 KVOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1859 monitoring: confirmed UT Friday January 6 at 0030 on WBCQ 9329.894v-CUSB, just barely audible, but at least we know it`s on tonight. The frequency is varying slightly as I try to measure it. Maybe reception is better elsewhere: I had a report from a listener in California. Next:
Sat 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB
Sat 0730 HLR 6190-CUSB to SW [off for maintenance this week only]

Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW [NEW]
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Also check WRMI airings, especially 9955, for possible // on 6855.

Also allegedly at random times on WBCQ 5130v-AM during Radio Jennifer service expanded hours, altho not noted lately. Updated full WOR sked:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, Jan 5 at 2255, WRMI in Spanish about Cuba, turns out to be // 9955 during R. Libertad prepeat hour; no jamming yet on 6855, but there sure will be once the DentroCuban Jamming Command catches on (or Arnie reads this). At 2302, now it`s `La Rosa de Tokio`, as also scheduled now on 9955 Thursdays, historical media program playing clip of Radio AtlÃntico del Sur, 9710, British clandestine during the Falklands war, as that is this week`s topic, an episode they keep repeating over and over, altho the anniversary isn`t until our spring/their fall. LRT still refuses to concede the Malvinas to Britain.

Until now, I think, WRMI has not put any Cuban exile programming on any frequency but 9955, thus protecting all the others from jamming. (I had suggested to Jeff at the outset that all jammable programming, only, be put on some new frequency instead of 9955, thus freeing it from overrun jamming.)

Anyhow, 6855, which had been all-BS-all-the-time for 24/7, for 2017y has been converted to a variety of other programming, some of it // 9955, some of it not, but it has the same color coding on the grid as 9955. 9955, however, is shown with TOM during daytime and overnight hours, unlike 6855.

Supposedly on a 285-degree antenna now, 6855 remains quite weak here, especially in daytime, so hard to tell what`s on it, and no program schedule for it has yet been published! So, much more monitoring of it is required. 285 is the same bearing to the WNW as on 7730, which has a *much* stronger signal.

Note that WORLD OF RADIO and other DX programs on 9955, could well be showing up on // 6855, but can`t be sure unless confirmed by monitoring, or a true-new 6855 program schedule be provided.

6855, at 0229 UT Friday January 6 is playing `Sandunga` as brief fill during a break, not // 9955, and then the latter is running `Blues Radio International` as scheduled UT Fridays 0230, and has quite a good signal until fadedown/out around 0250. 6855 is too weak to tell what else is on it now, but could be R. Prague as on 11580 which is hardly propagating this late.

6855, at 0300 January 6 is starting Radio TaiwÃn Internacional, Spanish relay, which had been scheduled only on 5985 during this hour, and indeed can be detected //, both JBA.

6855, Fri Jan 6 at 1452, `Viva Miami` // 9955. It`s the same old episode which has been running for more than a month, the second part interviewing somewoman about promoting El Salvador tourism, the first part having been about the Everglades. At 1505, when 9955 has gone to BS, 6855 is playing some music, unseems familiar `World Music`.

5850 // 7730, Fri Jan 6 at 0658, WRMI with `World Music`, both former TOM frequencies, but I had long noted them // with WM or other programming after 0700. Now the skedgrid finally shows them // at 06-08, but the 06-07 part all blank except for Fri 0600-0630 `Sounding the Alarm`. Following at 07 UT Fri it claims `Media Network Plus` which I should have stayed tuned to confirm, as it had been a no-show the past weeks (but PCJ programming was appearing 24 hours earlier on UT Thursdays 07-08) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), UT Fri Jan 6 at 0030, `Broad Spectrum Radio` on WBCQ, reception so poor that I switch to the webcast. This week`s topic per advance publicity: ``Redtown Radio with Brenda Golden --- In this episode, recorded on Nov. 22, 2016, Brenda looks at institutionalized racism, through stereotypes in popular culture, sports, mass communications and other efforts to dehumanize and discriminate against Native Americans.`` Unfortunately, she is cut off just before 0100 for WBCQ ID, and into `Voice of the Report of the Week` as scheduled. On webcast, and no doubt the same happened on 7490. Got to keep your programs to under 29 minutes (or 29:54 if you dare). The automation is merciless (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 6070, Friday January 6 at 0701, Vatican Radio is on with Gregorian chant, nice, but overrides poor CFRX. VR even better on // 7250, abutting 7255- Nigeria. I guess this is a holy day special from 0630 for Epiphany, if not a tip of the miter to the Orthodoxies, as transmission is normally on Sundays only any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3245.0-USB, Jan 6 at 0235, MARS-like net discussing frequencies not by kHz but by secret number designators. One definite callsign fonetikaly is OH7, contact is 5R#, third character did not sound like any familiar letter fonetik, altho I was tempted to think it was Juliet to go with Romeo. Nothing further and `out` at 0238.

Is this really MARS or something else? Strange calls do not correlate with ham-like formats MARS used to employ, i.e. never ending in a number! My only other log of this was a sesquimonth ago:

``UNIDENTIFIED. 3245.0-USB, Nov 19 [2016] at 0107, another AF MARS net in primetime as I heard a weak ``AAF`` call go by. They won`t have to worry about QRM de WBCQ 3250v; I wonder if 3250 was cleared as not anybody`s MARS frequency?`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)


UNIDENTIFIED. 7635, Jan 5 at 1414, very poor talk, S8-S5 with flutter.
Nothing listed here in Aoki, HFCC or EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

UNIDENTIFIED. 7670, Jan 5 at 1415, JBA carrier, another unID broadcaster,
or something else? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** BOLIVIA [and non]. 5952.46, Jan 4 at 0113, Radio Pio Doce with Andean music at S9+5 --- and now no QRM from 5950 as WRMI schedule is drastically contracted. 6134.81, Radio Santa Cruz, Jan 4 at 0113 is S9+5 as well, but with usual het from Brasil 6135.2. Usually they are separable by LSB/USB tuning, tight selectivity (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11925.0, Jan 4 at 0135, JBA talk here, not 11925.2, presumed R. Bandeirantes switching again. However, if no Brazuguese recognizable, one must beware of other 11925 occupants: CNR1 Lingshi 725 site China, until 0200; BBC Pashto via Oman 0300-0330. Then nothing until 0700- Turkey.

11925.179, Jan 4 at 0650, now I do hear a Bandeirantes promo back on the off-frequency, S8-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, Jan 4 at 0108, RHC English is S9+5 but just barely modulated. // 6000 is S9+30 but suptorted modulation with strange intermittent talk QRM, as if relayed from mis-tuned studio-transmitter link rather than circa 6000 itself. It`s always something at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. 11670, Wed Jan 4 at 1503, R. Adal, in Arabic, with same electronic fanfare every few seconds, between headlines? S9+10 via FRANCE as scheduled Wed & Sat only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUINEA. 9650, Jan 5 at 0823, R. GuinÃe, W&M in French conversation, S9+10, better than I hear it at more waking hours, as I am finally about to QRT. No sign of CCI from North Korea in Japanese from 0730, which bothers listeners in South America, Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9524.940, Jan 4 at 1420, VOI VP carrier shifted down to here after a while around 9526.1. 24 hours earlier, at 1438 Jan 3, Wolfgang BÃschel measured it on 9524.939, within margin of error (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1859, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 9700, Jan 4 at 1429, S Asian language at S9; HFCC shows VIRI in Bengali at 1420-1520, 100 kW, 98 degrees from Sirjan. RNZI is also registered here but currently on 7355 instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, Jan 4 at 1501, dead air to 1501.5, Denge Kurdistane resuming at S9.

11600, Jan 5 at 1459 I`m paying closer attention. Kurdish music is S9 to S9+10 but stops at 1500:24, no carrier break but now it`s reading only S7 to S9, so slickly switched site? Resumes chanting at 1501:19 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.93, Jan 4 at 0658, VON percussion at S9+10, back on the air after missing 24 hours ago. When on, it`s the outstanding signal in the 7200-7300 range (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, Jan 4 at 0057, R. Chaski better than usual, S8 and some music audible, 0102 talk in Spanish, 0103 more music until autocutoff at 0103:53.5* which is 20 seconds later than last check Jan 1 until 0103:33.5*, averaging 6-2/3 seconds later per diem. Now there is no longer any splash from 5985 WRMI! Also no longer hearing any China on 5979, so back to 5970, or not propagating at all? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SLOVAKIA [non]. 11580, Jan 3 at 2100, RSI in English daily via WRMI is here, ex-13695, which due to Brother Scare`s drastic reduxions, is no longer on air at all. RSI on 11580 reconfirmed Jan 5 at 2100, and 13695 reconfirmed silent. More at USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 3 at 1859, for the fourth day in a row, no signal from REE opening to North America. JBA carriers on 15390 and 15500 for other targets.

9690, Jan 4 at 1911 check, again no signal here but JBA carriers on 15390, 15500.

9690, Jan 5 at 2126, still no signal here, and the 15s are not audible either.

Monitors in Spain confirm that the upper two are on, but they hear nothing on 9690. So the transmissions continue, except to North America; just a temporary issue? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1859, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 7600, Jan 5 at 1413, S Asian language, S9-S9+10 with flutter. Aoki shows it`s BBC Hindi via Nakhon Sawan at 1400-1430. Surprised to hear two more signals above 7600; see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1858 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday January 3 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, good. Not confirmed before 0100 UT Wed Jan 4 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB where there is no signal, while 9265 WINB is S4. Confirmed Wed Jan 4 after 1415.5 on WRMI 9955, good S9+10, no jamming. Also confirmed Wed Jan 4 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490v-AM, fair. Not confirmed UT Thu Jan 5 after 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, while 9265 WINB is S9.

WOR 1859 confirmed Thu Jan 5 at 2130 on NEW 11580, fair, ex-13695!

WORLD OF RADIO 1859 ready for first airings January 5:
Thu 1230 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Thu 2130 WRMI 11580 to NE
Fri 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB

Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Also allegedly at random times on WBCQ 5130v-AM during Radio Jennifer service expanded hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Tue Jan 3 at 2130, WRMI with `Frecuencia al DÃa`, instead of 13695, which still appears on the program grid. Wed Jan 4 ending at 2157 on 11580 is Wavescan, also ex-13695 at 2130. So it appears the 2130-2200 UT strip of programs on 13695 have been shifted to 11580, and includes WORLD OF RADIO on Thursdays.

11580, Wed Jan 4 at 2201, to my surprise, non-BS programming now continues on 11580, Keith Perron introducing the `Happy Station Xmas Show`, to include readings of ``Night Before Xmas`` and ``How the Grinch Stole Xmas`` --- so that explains what I was hearing two weeks in a row, Thursdays at 0733 on 5850 // 7730. But first, Tom Meijer sings and so do the Chipmunx; fading out by 2227. The unupdated WRMI program grid shows that `Media Network` is on 5950 Weds at 22-23, while the frequency grid above it shows Family Radio in Spanish during that hour daily. But Thu Jan 5 at 2200 on 11580, it`s `La Rosa de Tokio`, another one listed for 5950 only.

11580, Thu Jan 5 circa 1430, `World Music` is still playing during this hour (except Sundays), always enjoyable wide variety, some familiar tunes, some not. Ditto for the 21-22 UT hour on 9955.

15770, Wed Jan 4 at 2158, Brother Scare is already running; maybe switched early? Or not really carrying part of a RFI broadcast at 2115-2200 as scheduled only on Weds. I hope other non-BS programming continue at 2130 on 15770, including WOR on Tuesdays (which was confirmed this week). Thu Jan 5 at 2130 on 15770, I`m hearing R. Ukraine International as scheduled this day only. 2200 back to BS, for how long?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330, Jan 4 at 0132, no signal from WBCQ when Blalock should be blasting, yet nearest SWBC neighbor, 9265 WINB achieves S9+25 now. I am suspecting that 9330 transmitter is not only not propagating, but not on the air much of the time, including WOR scheduled at 0030 UT Mon-Sat, 2330 Sat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Jan 3 at 1900, KVOH English ID, into Spanish hymn, so maybe staying on later than scheduled sign-off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, Jan 4 at 2131, WMLK is still on and it`s a speaker other than DEJOM, quite a rarity. One monitor hearing Yahweh mentioned here, thought it was the YHWH pirate. Axually it would be clever for him to go on 9275 after WMLK finishes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1250.7, Jan 4 at 0140 UT, JBA het here from off-frequency carrier. I search my inbox and get one hit on the number, from 13 years ago on the NRC-AM list!

``Station on 1250.7, Sunday, November 14, 2004 11:56 PM --- I am listening to a station on 1250.7 (yes it is off freq). A man is talking about economic problems in Montgomery City and County (Bill Harms, Elkridge, MD`` Later:

I just IDed it as WAPZ Alabama. Here is the clip [no longer available].
http://mywebpages.comcast.net/billqsl/sounds/20041114-1900e-wapz-1250.7.mp3
They were indeed off frequency at 1250.7. Notice on the clip there is no co-channel interference, only side-channel slop. The het is gone now at 1915 [EST?], and I am listening to 1250 which sounds like a mess. Bill Harms, Elkridge, Maryland``

There are now two 1250s in AL. WRBZ is the one ex-WAPZ as of 3/15/11, from Wetumpka, 5000/80 watts U1, indeed not far from Montgomery. (BTW in OK we have a Wetumka (without the P), east of Seminole, both probably deriving from the same tribe, pre- and post-Trail of Tears) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3308.0-USB, Jan 4 at 0123, MARS? Net with weather reports. NCS is 5XF, one contact 5WK, fonetikaly, presumably skipping their prefices, AFA-?. Het from 3310 local 2 x 960 + 1390 mix rather than Mosoj Chaski (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3390.5-USB, Jan 4 at 0118, YL & OM in MARS(?) net, talking about propagation, upcoming hamfest, truncated or tactical calls fonetikaly as 07CE and the YL 82SS, mostly hearing her side only.

I had one previous log of this frequency: ``3390.5-USB, Jan 20, 2016 at 0120, yet another AF MARS net but too weak to copy much. Must be a favorite early-evening hour to get together`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7635, Jan 5 at 1414, very poor talk, S8-S5 with flutter. Nothing listed here in Aoki, HFCC or EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7670, Jan 5 at 1415, JBA carrier, another unID broadcaster, or something else? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
