I`m not ready for another full report with only two new logs, but spotting a big typo in previous one which needs to be corrected ASAP, not 21631.33-USB!:

** JAMAICA. 21261.33-USB, March 4 at 2107, rapid contest contacts by 6Y1LZ. I was expecting 6Y5, but it seems there are also 6Y1s now. His accent made it hard to tell 5 from 1. QRZ.com shows: ``6Y1LZ Jamaica, KRASSIMIR PETKOV, 4 MARC RD, Medway, MA 02053, USA, QSL: K1LZ``. Where in Jamaica? Wouldn`t that be more pertinent than his unoccupied home address? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See comment under CAYMAN

** BRAZIL. 11855.266, March 5 at 0739 check, R. Aparecida appears to be here, even further off-frequency and wobbling, with what else, rosary at S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025.02, March 5 at 0712, R. Rebelde is back on the air at S9+20. Measured as closely at possible, compared to WWV 5000.000, it does seem to be slightly off to the hi side like the JBA carrier I was hearing earlier at 0155 and presumed to be R. Quillabamba, PerÃ. Still inconclusive, another factor being possibility that more than one Cuban transmitter is employed on 5025. One of them could be on .02 and JB audible with exciter only. And as to why it`s been missing in the evenings but heard after 0700 --- that`s when numerous RHC transmitters become available; maybe the main Rebelde one is out of order (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1635 UT March 5

Logs
** CANADA. 3330-CUSB, March 5 at 0159 check, still no CHU, but OK on 7850-CUSB. Following my previous note, Richard Langley, NB, reported March 3 to the DXLD yg: ``I reached out to my contacts at NRC. Here is the reply: `Hello Richard, The 3330 kHz transmission system has been malfunctioning recently and is currently off. We hope to have it up and running next week. I will ask Bill Hoger from our team to give you a more detailed update. Thank you, Marina Gertsvolf` I'll pass along further info when I get it`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2748.99-CUSB, March 5 at 0202 UT, marine weather by French YL, including Madelaine, avis aux navigateurs. CCG website shows VCS Halifax via Chebogue NS site starting at 0140 in English, then French. S8, better signal than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 7420, March 5 at 0144, Southern Cone Spanish accent in discussion of Argentine national sovereignty; why, is there some threat to that? It`s VRII, 500 kW due west from Sirjan achieving S9+15 here. That beam is really centred on BelÃm, Cobija, Riberalta, Ayacucho, i.e. right across the middle of South America, mostly sparsely populated Amazonian Portuguese-speaking Brasil, missing Argentina as much as it is missing us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 5790 & 5792, March 5 between 0240 and 0244 I search for Station YHWH on two favorite frequencies, as well as the entire 7300-7700 range, with no signs of Martin K Elliott. Busted again? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5025.02, March 5 at 0155, JBA carrier, from presumed Radio Quillabamba, as R. Rebelde is still/again AWOL. 0240 recheck, even this is gone. I re-ask, can anyone confirm this off-frequency for Quillabamba, which used to be as far to the other side of 5025.00? Only other possibility I can think of is R. Rebelde on exciter only, but I had not noticed whether it was exactly on frequency before. Most Cubans are good about that if little else (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, March 5 at 0101, JBA carrier from R. Chaski until autocutoff at 0103:27.5*, which is 46 seconds later than last check a week ago, Feb 26 at 0102:41.5*, or averaging 6.57 seconds later per 24 hours, slippage right on the mark (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7325 // 5960, UT Sunday March 5 at 0140, RRI with `DX Mailbag` right on time per our DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS schedule, starting with a response from India (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 1521.0, March 5 at 0218, quite a het upon Kim Komando, 1520.0 KOKC. Loops NE/SW, not SE/NW, so surely it`s the 2-megawatt BSKSA, Duba, Saudi Arabia, rather than a ZNS spur. No other TA carriers noted in cursory check of a few frequencies on MW & LW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESET)

** U S A. 1860.00-AM, March 5 at 0208 UT, WA0RCR with ham news from ARRL, plugging book ``Ham Radio for Dummies``. Remarkable that ``for dummies`` is considered a successful marketing strategy. Axually, we don`t need any more dummies. I would immediately dismiss any such book since, well, I am not a dummy. From 15m logs earlier in the day I know there is some kind of DX contest in progress, but the 160m band is not chock-full of stations as usually happens. I do find one lonely guy calling CQ Contest on 1854-LSB, K3LR, but no one is answering from 0210 past 0213, not even after he slides up to 1855-LSB to get a bit of splash from WA0RCR-AM. Remarx, ``the band is terrible``. I tune around and hear no other contesters, just rag-chewers. Suspect the 160m band is off-limits for this contest? NO, it IS included:
http://www.arrl.org/arrl-dx
It`s for W/VE to work DX stations only and vice versa. See also WORLD OF RADIO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1867 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday March 5 at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, about 8 minutes into show so started circa 0420. Good S9+20 and no QRM from contesters, since foreign DX was evidently scarce, unlike 160-m-only domestic contests. Next:
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to SW
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW

Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.83-AM, UT Sunday March 5 at 0123, WBCQ with variations on ``Mr Tambourine Man`` by The Birds and Bill Shatner, seems before a live audience with cosmikdebris hosting `Lumpy Gravy Radio Show`, normally not starting until 0200, and so shown on this weekend`s worldmicroscope.com schedule, but Larry Will must have coÃpted time from Timtron, for this is occurring at the Winter SWL Fest. 0147 mentions that this ``Radio Free Mount Airy`` is in stereo at the Plymouth Meeting venue on approx. 87.9, and ``a good chance also on the Becker Broadcasting System, 106.7 in Kiowa, Kansas`` (Hmm, I`ve never heard that, 53 miles away; and WTFDA DB has no such station; the only Kiowan is KQZQ 98.3, 97 kW which I can hear. BTW, this evening there are no real pirates to be heard on the 43mb.) 0152 plugging Aussie Mark Fahey`s multi-media Guide to Propaganda and Media of North Korea which is about to be published as an Ibook in multiple parts; he was one of the speakers. See http://BehindtheCurtain.Asia

0227 still going mostly about old songs, 0232 Tiny Tim; 0240 commercial for Miller High-Life Beer --- wow! A modest SW show with a national advertiser --- or maybe not; seems this is just another classic from the past, recorded from a Jean Shepherd show in 1965. He also played it last night during the AWWW hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, UT Sunday March 5 at 0123, WWRB is extant, despite absence a week ago, S9+45 of gospel huxter. By 0201, QSY to 3195 has been accomplished to avoid collision with WWCR, as Exodus III: 14, 13 and 12 are being referenced (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1350, March 5 at 0222 UT and 0229 UT, partial IDs amid music as ``La Nueva 13-50 AM y la 97.9 FM, los Ãxitos``. That`s now a match in the WTFDA FM Database for KZTD in Cabot AR, for ``K250BT, 97.9, Jacksonville AR, 250 watt translator // KZTD-1350, FIESTA MEXICANA 1350, REGIONAL MEXICAN``. I logged this last September with very confusing FM connexions to 105.5 Baton Rouge LA, and 98.7 Wichita Falls TX. See
http://www.bclnews.it/2016/09/28/glenn-hauser-logs-september-27-28-2016/
BTW, power is allegedly 2500 watts day, 73 watts night and this is the latter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1630, March 5 at 0216 UT, ``La Mexicana, --- FM y 16-30 AM`` --- must be the name KRND Fox Farm WY is going by now. Numerous search hits show it`s really ``La Jota Mexicana, 94.7 FM y 16-30 AM``. 94.7 is of course, nothing but a translator (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 7410, March 5 at 0143, English in S Asian accent, about Adam & Eve, ~S8. Vatican Radio aimed due east from SMG, but still makes it over here to the NW, 0140-0200 being the English segment. Rumors keep flying that SW is on the verge of being abolished by the Holy C. And press recently implies that the very name ``Vatican Radio`` has already been deleted. I`ve yet to listen closely enough to confirm that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15476, Fri Mar 3 at some chex between 20 and 21 UT, no trace of LRA36 here. Hugo LÃpez in Chile, who first discovered it back March 1, confirmed it was on 15475.95 again March 2 until 2102*. Keep trying M-F 18-21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BARBADOS. 21383.3-USB, March 4 at 1925, ham with extremely quick contest contacts, ending with ``5-9-K``. I have a hard time copying his own call when he gives it. First sounds like ``yankee victor five alfa``, but later decide he`s saying ``thank you, eight peter five alfa``. If he`s in such a hurry, why not dispense with all the ``thank-yous`` which would add up to a lot more points in toto. One could easily assume everyone is thankful for each contact. So it`s Barbados, no longer able to start VP6- which has moved to Pitcairn. QRZ.com shows: ``8P5A Barbados flag, Tom Georgens, W2SC, QSL via NN1N, Bureau, direct, LoTW``. Strange on the split frequency, so you can`t demodulate him clearly in 1-kHz steps. See comment under JAMAICA. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11855.158, March 4 at 0716, R. Aparecida with rosary at S9-S4, audibly varying and quite higher than its previous landings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BURUNDI [non]. 15420, Saturday March 4 at 1857, the SSOB on 19m is this! Radio Itahuka on its weekly hour via MADAGASCAR --- S9+10 but just barely modulated in African language, presumably Kirundi. Refund from MBR? Itahuka is cut off still talking at 1900*. With 250 kW at 315 degrees from Talata, much stronger signal (but less modulated) than 15710 WHRIBS which normally inbooms but is now only S6-S4; than 15500 & 15390 Spain; than 15770 WRMIBS; than 15580 VOA; than 15825 WWCR. WWV reports: ``Solar-terrestrial indices for 03 March follow. Solar flux 78 and estimated planetary A-index 22. The estimated planetary K-index at 1800 UTC on 04 March was 3. Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor. Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CAYMAN ISLANDS. 21342.333-USB, March 4 at 2111, ZF2MJ, fonetikaly with contest contacts: QRZ.com shows ``ZF2MJ Cayman Islands, Daniel Craig, 200 Barcelona Cir, Fullerton, CA 92835, USA, QSL: Home call N6MJ``. So WHERE in the Caymans? Doesn`t even say which island. This is the third 15m station on a .3 split frequency --- is my R75 out of calibration? No, still within 3-6 Hz of WWV, a correxion factor I apply in measurements. With only the usual JBA carrier on 13m from 21675 WRMI, I wondered if 15m would be open from hams anywhere; 12m and 10m were dead. Also got BARBADOS, JAMAICA on 15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ECUADOR. 6050, here`s why I was hearing HCJB in Spanish circa 0630 March 3: Horst Rosiak, the German who runs HCJB in Quito, notified his mailing list, including EuroGermans and Rudolf Grimm in Brasil that a new transmitter had been activated on Mount Pichincha, testing 24 hours a day. He said the thin air at high altitude, 4 kilometers, was causing the thermal control to cut it off the air for 5 minutes at a time, but I didn`t hear any breaks during my monitorage. Also says German-language broadcasts may be resumed when audible in Europe. What`s the power, antenna? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAMAICA. 21631.33-USB, March 4 at 2107, rapid contest contacts by 6Y1LZ. I was expecting 6Y5, but it seems there are also 6Y1s now. His accent made it hard to tell 5 from 1. QRZ.com shows: ``6Y1LZ Jamaica, KRASSIMIR PETKOV, 4 MARC RD, Medway, MA 02053, USA, QSL: K1LZ``. Where in Jamaica? Wouldn`t that be more pertinent than his unoccupied home address? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See comment under CAYMAN

** MADAGASCAR. 11868.5 & 11351.5, March 3 at 2106, spurblobs from 11610 MWV in Chinese are still audible; trying FM mode on them is no help. Still haven`t found any similars around other MWV frequencies.

17640, March 4 at 1854, MWV with African music is the OSOB! Also a JBA carrier on 9570, which could be their other transmitter in Russian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also BURUNDI [non]

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6040, UT Sunday March 5 at 0026, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY, new experimental frequency in addition to // 6145. 6040 is a few dB stronger on the PL-880 meter, but has the lite Brazilian het I expected, yet 6145 sounds a bit louder: both with considerable fading and storm noise, but no other QRM. The QSY is unnecessary as long as the continuously-farting Brazilian blob circa 6145 and its source, the 6180 transmitter, remain off. However, Roger Thayer in Germany, too close, says 6145 has CCI there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, March 4 at 0718, RNZI back here, VG S9+10 with music, despite having been caught on 9700 two nights before. Noel Green in England says it was also back on 11725 March 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 22-9 MHz bandscan with special attention to 19m on 15530 and 15300 where I (alone) previously captured him, 2100-2109 UT March 3, still no trace of Station YHWH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1867 monitoring: confirmed Friday March 3 at 2230 on WRMI 11580, S9+10, JBA carrier on presumed // 5950 --- yes, by 2251 I can make out a poor // there. But not // on 6855 where it was originally, rather some music announced as ELO at 2251; maybe // the new rock fill on 9395? NO. Anyhow, Jeff tells me that 6855 may return in a week or two to the previous // pattern. Apparently it was disrupted last Friday by the KIYU relay and has yet to be restored.

WOR 1867 also confirmed UT Sat Mar 4 at 0030 on WBCQ 9329.9v-CUSB, JBA. NOT confirmed Sat Mar 4 after 1530 on HLR 7265-CUSB, via UTwente SDR --- only audible is S Asian music from CRI Kashgar, with CCI from something else, unme, presumably the other China station listed. Nor anything toward the end of the hour, 1557-1600 when CRI Russian blasts in as usual. Also confirmed Sat Mar 4 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.9v-CUSB, good. Next:

** U S A. 9955, Friday March 3 at 2201, checking WRMI for the new show `Las Noches con Mirka`, in case it is on at this UT and on this frequency, which were not specified in Mirka Pratts` publicity on WRMI FB, starting last Friday. Apparently that is she I am hearing mixed with wall-of-noise jamming, off to a great start, but what should she expect, at a time formerly occupied by a prepeat of Radio Libertad??

It`s extremely informal chat with some musicians for the next hour, just a bit of a music break around the half-hour. One topic was a Lecuona music festival coming up in April. Heavy Cuban accents and they talk and laugh over each other, even yell, in an echoey venue, all of which make it hard to understand, so I never hear the hostess nor any of the guests explicitly identified --- despite having soon switched to the webcast to evade the jamming, which at 2300 goes to Media Network Plus. Radio Libertad is still playing at its original jammed time of 0000 UT March 4 (but not weekends) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 & 6855, UT Sat March 4 at 0307, `Shortwave Shindig` special is underway via WRMI, live from the Winter SWL Fest, David Goren hosting with lots of guests, shout-outs and -ins. After confirming this, I admit to listening to the webcast direct from Plymouth Meeting, which was apparently the feed to WRMI. And then two hours of WaveFarm`s Short Waves / Long Distance, which was really a treat! If you missed it, look at all the radio art contained; maybe it will be availablized ondemand??
https://wavefarm.org/ta/calendar/vgckss

It was uninterrupted until 0600*, but Richard Langley in NB says the feed was lost to WRMI at 0435, and never came back, default to World Music; poor to no reception anyway in that direxion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, UT Sat Mar 4 from 0115 on WBCQ webcast since I`m at the computer, `Allan Weiner Worldwide` without AW. It`s soon obviously live from the 30th annual Winter Fest, hosted by Larry Will with Jane, and several other voices I don`t recognize, nor are they identified. Just informal and irreverent chat about what`s going on, some of the fora already. Seems AW himself is not in attendance, to the disappointment of someone who wanted him to autograph his book. Larry said there would be more from the Fest during his Saturday night show, i.e. `Lumpy Gravy` at 0200-0300 UT Sunday on 5130v-AM. I thought this might go on past 0200 tonight, but no, back to BS on 7490. There might be more from the Fest on Saturday/UT Sunday via 7490 or even 9330 but no info about that.

At 0010 UT March 5, John H Carver, Jr, in mid-north Indiana tells me,
``Broadcast live from the Fest on 5130 right now``. And at 0014: ``Now they are playing something taped at the Fest eleven years ago. Will be back live in about an hour.``

How about `Atlantic Oldies 2NG Radio`, which was appearing Saturdays in Feb at 2200-2300 on 7490? No more, per website http://2ngradio.com/
``2NG ON SHORTWAVE --- Our shortwave broadcasts for February have now concluded. We hope to [be] back in April or May. In the meantime please enjoy our internet stream by clicking to the left. eQSL acrds will be sent in the next few weeks. Thank You for all your feedback``. He might have got more had this ever appeared on the WBCQ schedule. I publicized it only because I ran across it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat Mar 4 at 1903, NO signal from WTWW-2, for `Theater Organ from the Ozarx`. 9475 is loud with QSO show; 12105 is on but VP. Maybe 9930 came on shortly, for at 1920 recheck it`s S9+20 as Bob Heil is introducing ``From Paris Skies`` --- same tune heard last week and before that, so seems Ted is playing same episode over & over! Ends at 1935, quick WTWW ID, and ANOTHER repeat episode we recognize from weeks ago, from the Lincoln Theatre in Belleville IL. Sometimes `Amateur Radio Newsline` plays after TOFTO instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, Sat March 4 at 1939, WINB in African language --- or is it English with heavy accent? I hear ``immortality for life`` [sic] more than once. Only S5-S4. WINB has already put up a schedule effective March 5! And with correct EST/UT time conversions for one more week. Shows 1930 Sat is `Gospel Distribution` with no further info --- not on the by-program list. I vaguely recall this may have been a multi-lingual thing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
