Logs
** ARMENIA. 9745, Mon Jan 29 at 1435, S8-S5, religious in English referring to frequency 9410, South Asian accent, explaining that the root of the word Bible means book! EiBi shows 9745 as TWR via Armenia, M-F at 1435 going from Hindi to English until 1450, and indeed off when rechecked at 1455.

Certainly not on 9410, nothing heard, altho both BBC English via Oman and Turkey in Russian are scheduled this hour. Guess what: per Aoki/NDXC, 9410 was the A-17 frequency for this service, and they are still announcing it! That should confuse listeners, no more so than TWR India itself. Why doesn`t a god intervene and set them straight in its own self-interest? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOUVET ISLAND [non]. 14195-USB, Jan 29 at 1502, W6HXW utters his callsign over and over, atop a pileup for some DX station, reminding us that the 3Y0Z visit to Bouvet is finally about to begin, ETA was today or tomorrow (plus some time to set up). 14185 was their nominal frequency on this band, but now I am hearing only DG7LAL on 14184-USB working USA stations. Keep an eye on:
https://dx-world.net/3y0z-bouvet-2018/
with daily reports on the voyage, which has encountered some very bad weather and rough seas, so they may be further behind schedule, but no new ETA mentioned:

``JANUARY 29 â We had another night of rocking and rolling. A strong southwesterly wind produced high following seas resulting in the stern of the ship rising on the approaching wave or swell, the ship surfing down the front of the wave, and the bow plunging into the wave ahead of it. The change in motion produced a change in the migratory pattern of gear and furniture, but the chaotic end results were similar to our last rough ride. Entropy exists.

Last evening, we met with the helicopter pilots to be sure we understood each other. Safety first, and then get everything ashore as quickly as possible with never more people than our infrastructure can support. We parted with the "one team" commitment.

We continue to bounce around, but for the soaring sea birds around us, it is just another day. Onward! [KÃIR]``

The same appears on
http://www.bouvetdx.org/
with this addition as of January 29: ``1605 UTC: Satellite navigation shows the ship 370 nautical miles from Bouvet``. So what is their average daily naumileage? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BULGARIA. 5900, Jan 29 at 0214, S9-S6 of open carrier, whence? HFCC shows only SOFia, Bulgaria, registered available at 0000-1730, 100 kW at 126 degrees. This frequency was formerly used for Brother Scare at certain times, nominally to N America. Nothing in EiBi, but Aoki/NDXC:

``5900 BIBLE VOICE BCN Radio Dardasha7 0216-0231 1234567 Arabic 50 126 Kostinbrod(Sofia) BUL 4240N 02320E BVBN b17 MBR Nov 23`` Unfortunately I didn`t recheck it after 0216 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6070, UT Mon Jan 29 at 0040 on caradio, CFRX coming back from an iHeart break to `Ted Talks` --- in America we would expect to hear this on NPR stations, or RNZI, but CBC must have passed on it in Canada. Program schedule at
http://www.iheartradio.ca/newstalk-1010/shows
seems to ignore weekend variations in the evenings but there is a sidebar link to Ted Talks:
http://www.iheartradio.ca/shows/ted-radio-hour-1.1761523
but time for `TED Radio Hour` as Sunday 12-1 am [05-06 UT], so maybe what I heard was only a promo. Drop-down ``select station`` shows it`s also on six other Canadian iHeart stations. Eventually a link to podcasts of recent episodes, this one for Jan 26 being ``Can We Trust the Numbers?``
https://www.iheart.com/podcast/7-TED-Radio-Hour-28457194/episode/can-we-trust-the-numbers-28874929/

Anyhow, I am pleased to be able to listen to CFRX while driving around Enid at night on the BST-1 SW caradio. That is, except when too close to noisy traffic lights/HF transmitters which block even stronger signals than this 1 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, UT Mon Jan 29 at 0215, RHC English with special about Josà Martà on some anniversary, instead of `DXers Unlimited` with Arnie Coro, who is recovering from surgery. So what better substitute? Also Martà stuff in the second half of English hours; at 0630 mailbag, 0633 ``special`` World of Stamps about --- JM.

9535, UT Mon Jan 29 at 0613, RHC is still on here and in English instead of turning off at 0600 after Spanish. Something`s always wrong at RHC. `DXers Unlimited` is supposed to be on now, but no mention heard of Arnie Coro, who is recovering from surgery. Instead, report about a duplicate of a Josà Martà statue in New York being installed in Habana --- about time! // The Cuban Five, 5040, 6000, 6060, 6100, 6165 with various levels of modulation. 9535 mod is OK but only fair signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 5920, Jan 29 at 1405, pop song sounds English, 1407 Korean YL; lite jamming from rapidly pulsing carrier on high side, about 5921.65. Must be Voice of Freedom from South to North.

6085, Jan 29 at 1412, Furusato no Kaze, via Shiokaze, JAPAN, this one with same kind of jamming but from the low side 6084 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13835-13840-13845, Jan 28 at 2016, DRM Noise weak abutting 13845-AM WWCR. Must be RNZP. After several changes here is their full schedule as of Jan 29, from
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/listen

``RNZ Pacific (RNZI) broadcasts at the following frequencies and times to different parts of the Pacific Region. Expect schedule changes from time to time to take account of propagation to our target audience.

NB: Every month on the first Wednesday is Maintenance day at our transmitter site from 2230 to 0600 UT (Thursdays 1030-1800 NZST [but is on DST of UT+13 until April --- gh]). During this period there may be interruptions to our programmes.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1914 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday January 29 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9329.96v-CUSB, S4-S5; also confirmed UT Mon Jan 29 from 0401 on Area 51 webcast, and on WBCQ 5129.83v, ~S7 at 0429 check. Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 29 at 0430 on WRMI 9455, S9+10, much stronger than // 9955 yet peaking S9. Next:

Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1915?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Jan 29 at 1456, WRMI `Viva Miami` vs pulse jamming, new episode in Spanish with Jeff & ThaÃs discussing fruit and other food, evidently after stopping in Hawai`i on their trip back from HFCC A-18 Malaysia. Yes, that event has already come and gone, Jan 22-26. Perhaps reports and photos of the conference will eventually be made public, at HFCC.org, or WRMI FB, like was done for HFCC B-17 in Cape Town. ``The B18 HFCC/ASBU Coordination Conference will be held from 27 to 31 August 2018 in Slovakia.`` I see that HFCC has a questionnaire, but not intended for mere listeners, who can see what concerns them:

Logs
** ANGUILLA. 11775, Jan 28 at 1509, CB is on again with PMS. Last night, 6090 was not heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Sunday Jan 28 at 0802, I had dozed off, but perceived RHC Esperanto sign-on just in time to hear this frequency cut off the air, while 6100 stayed on. Another typical example of the slipshod way RHC transmitters are made to go on and off without respect or coÃrdination to programming breaks. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

17580, Jan 28 at 1505, RHC Spanish still on air // much weaker 17730, but by 1508, 17580 has cut off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15577, 15508, 15439, 15301, 15232, 15163, 15094, 15025, 14956, 14887, Jan 28 at 1429, RHC-FM spur field at plus/minus 69 kHz intervals today out of 15370-AM transmitter. The closer ones have clear if weak audio when tuned in FM mode, all of them with the F# whine. Something`s always wrong (x10) at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370-AM, Sun Jan 38 at 1439 retune just a little too late for early start of `En Contacto`, as YL says about Arnie`s condition following surgery, ``sigue en total mejorÃa`` and will be back on air soon. Meanwhile filling with a 1990 interview by Ing. YnclÃn. I understand that his English version, `DXers Unlimited` instead skipped an episode. Recheck for its Sunday/UT Monday times. We wish Coro the best for a full recovery (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9955, Jan 28 at 1516, pulse jamming against nothing from the incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command. Take that, WRMI!! Despite never on the air now at 15-22, and when it was, full of BS, no Cuban exiles in this span (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII [and non]. 2500, Jan 28 at 0714, WWV with NWS notice about discontinuing marine weather, as also heard earlier on WWVH. Here`s the exact info from homepage
https://www.nist.gov/pml/time-and-frequency-division/radio-stations/wwv

``NOTICE: Proposed discontinuation of storm warning announcements on WWV and WWVH --- The National Weather Service is seeking comments on the proposed discontinuation of Atlantic and Pacific high seas storm warnings on the WWV and WWVH broadcasts. These announcements are heard on minutes 8, 9 and 10 of each hour on WWV, and minutes 48, 49, 50 and 51 of WWVH. Questions, comments or concerns about this proposed change should be emailed to nwws.issue@noaa.gov (link sends e-mail) with NIST MARINE WARNING in the subject line, no later than February 23, 2018``

IIRC, such a notice was also airing last year, but apparently nothing ensued, postponed and now being reconsidered (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, Jan 28 circa 1520 bandscan, no signal as usual from VOI which has been missing now for weeks. Michael Cunningham in Brisbane tells me,

``Hi Glen[n], VOI have notified listeners on their Facebook page today (Sun 28th Jan) that the 9525 kHz is under maintenance. No indication of when they expect to return. See attached for the notification``

his voice of indonesia-off.pdf says:
``Dear valued listeners, in the past several weeks our SW 9525 kHz transmitter has been under maintenance. We apologize for the inconvenience. But don`t worry, you are still able to listen to our programs via streaming on [sic]
Http://cdn.voinews.id/streaming_en/id.html
and
http://cdn2.voinews.id
Thank you very much for staying tuned to Voice of Indonesia`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Minor regional tropo morning of Jan 28 at 1541+ UT revisiblizes the last remaining NTSC signal in this area still vigent, channel A-48, KOCY OKC, infomercial in Spanish for Dermawand; 1600 lightly animated ID as KOCY 48.1 Estrella TV. Snowy but steady color pix. The 48.1 virtual refers to a subchannel of full-power RF 29 KTUZ Shawnee-OKC, which has the SS market tied up, also with Telemundo and UnivisiÃn, each on a totally different virtual channel.

Also numerous Bad DTV signals, none decoding, on: 47, 45, 42, 38, 36, 31, 22, 21, 20, 19. These correlate with OKC, Wichita markets, maybe Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 11675, Sun Jan 28 at 1511, S9-S7 gospel huxter in southern English; what`s this? T8WH (a.k.a. HBN to HFCC), registered daily 1430-1600 in English due west. In fact it`s on Sat & Sun only per NDXC/Aoki, which explains why I don`t hear it on weekday bandscans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1914 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday January 28 at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+30 but with heavy CW QRM from some 160m ham contest, at Kurdistan/Armenia item 13 minutes into show, so started circa ontime 0415. Next:
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 9455 to WNW
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1915?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // reactivated 7780, WRMI, Sunday Jan 28 at 1400, secret airtime of `AWR Wavescan` reconfirmed, new edition for this date (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2959.992, Jan 28 at 0709, JBA carrier here, from presumed WABF Mobile AL second harmonic as logged earlier, so now very close to on-frequency fundamental 1480 rather than 1479.958 as logged by Krueger on October 22. It`s notable that of the myriad of US AM stations, 2x harmonix are so rare; tnx, WABF! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11501.6-USB, Jan 28, 2-way in Spanish, whistling; QRM from rapid clicking bursts at two different pitches alternating, OTHR? Intruders if we consider 25m SWBC down to 11500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
