** CUBA. 9580, August 5 at 0135, CRI relay is S9+20/30 but
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. 9570 Albania
relay is still OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, UT Monday August 5 at 0136, RHC `En Contacto` is
starting, undermodulated but sufficient, also on 11760. Arnie opens
with info that the average sunspot number in July was only 0.9.
Recheck at 0145, Pepe Bueno in Spain is concluding his monthly DX
report on behalf of AER, giving the schedule of Radio CANDIP, Congo DR
on 5066! Don`t you believe it. This station has been inactive for at
least two years. He is probably relying on ``A-19`` schedule info in
the June issue of El Dial-E:

``CONGO DEM.REP. Radio CANDIP Bunia: •
0300-0700 5066vBUN 001 kW / non-dir COD French •
1300-1900 5066vBUN 001 kW / non-dir COD French 5066v=5066,4``

Followed there immediately by another imaginary station long-gone:
``DJIBOUTI Radio Djibouti: • 0300-2200 4780 DBT 050 kW / non-dir EaAf

``B-18 schedules of African Stations`` also from AER were quoted in
Rus-DX of 20 January 2019, not only these but obviously(???) deleted
stations: Chad 6165, Malabo 6250, Hargeisa 7120, Uganda 4976 and

Last real log of CANDIP we had was from ****2017****, DXLD 17-14:

``CONGO DR. Also R. Candip better than before on 5066.4 till just
after 2000, and also stronger than usual (Thorsten Hallmann, Germany,
March 30, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

I try not to critique fellow DX program presenters despite hearing
erroneous info, but just can`t let this one pass. Some of them I
deliberately do not listen to, so can avoid such conflicts. But:
something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** OKLAHOMA. In last report as I was lamenting KROU/KGOU`s lack of
reception in Enid, you may wonder how then I was quoting it on KWOU:
the cited 88.1 KWOU relay of KGOU via Woodward is extremely marginal,
sometimes audible with a little morning tropo, often barely or blocked
by KMSI Moore; and/or rapid choppy peaks in Doppler fading reflected
via Vance airplane scatter, which are always buzzing over Enid
especially in morning flight training (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DXLD)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: not confirmed but
presumed still there, Sunday August 4 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, JBA
carrier vs HNL totaling S9+10.

Confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0130 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+20 following
0129 ID for ``Son-Power Radio from studios of WRMI on 5850, 7455
[abandoned years ago], 9395``. While // 7780 is S9+10 in high noise

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0258 just in time, the 0230 on
WRMI 7780, very poor.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0259 on Area 51 webcast, already
in progress during first item about Andorra [non] so started about 3
minutes early. WBCQ 5130.3v JBA at 0327 check when HRI has already
started; no trace vs HNL now nor earlier this evening of 6160v, unlike
last week.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+10/20,
following some scary music fill at 0328 and soothing music at 0329.
1816 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania*
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780
0800 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 3210-USB NSW [2 editions]*
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780

*NOTE: IRRS might be missing due to transmitter shortage in Romania;
and Aussie Tim Gaynor told us August 4 that Unique Radio is off TFN
for repairs.

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 830, August 5 at 0149 UT on E-W longwire, no WCCO, but a
station playing novelty tune, but modulation keeps cutting out, for
variable intervals such as on for 22 seconds, off for 5, on for 24,
off for 8, etc., etc. 0156 UT, ``Happy Trails to You``, barbershop
performance, maybe for a sign-off? No, then ``Fish Heads``, but this
is not Dr. Demento; Of course fades out around hourtop; 0202 UT
another novelty song with cutouts.

On the DX-398 it`s hard to DF, best audible with a slow SAH circa 1 Hz
in WCCO null which is ESE/WNW, but seems to peak a bit CCW from there,
i.e. close to E-W. I don`t see how this could be anything but WUMY
Memphis TN (address in Southaven MS suburb), which last year`s NRC AM
Log shows as: a 3 kW daytimer, but CP for U1 8 kW day, 2 WATTS night,
classic hits format in $ tereo; and of course this is way after sunset
which in August is officially 0045 UT. Also FCC AM Query no longer
shows any such CP, just daytimer license to GMF-Christian Media I LLC
[sic] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. BURT WOLF --- TRAVELS & TRADITIONS is an excellent program,
available here only once a week on OETA, Sundays at 2100-2128 UT. It`s
not just a travelogue but deals with a different subject each week. In
current Season 18, two of particular relevance here:

Short Guide To Cell Phone Safety

Description: Burt takes a quick look at the history of communication
from the cavemen to the alphorn, to the telephone and finally the
cellphone. He traces how the cellphone has changed his work and family
life as he travels around the world. He also tracks down a series of
stories in the United States and Europe that suggests that the
cellphone may not be as safe as most of us thought. He meets with
experts in England, Italy, France and the United States to find out
how we can deal with the problems that are emerging. And finally, Burt
follows an Apple developer's conference where they are working on apps
to limit your use of their own products.

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey, August 4 at 1325: 9255, 11100 and
11120 JBA carriers; 11440, 11460 audibly in Chinese. None further
found 12-15 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, Aug 4 at 1323, RHC is S7 on second harmonic of 6000,
S9+10, but higher one is less noisy during `Sonido Cubano` music.
Altho I`m always interested in harmonix, as long as they don`t QRM
anything, there are still something wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 15140, Aug 4 at 1337, and again at 1437 check, RHC is
extremely suptorted here but OK tho weaker on 15230. Wiggle that
patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun August 4 at 0028, The Mighty KBC is
VG this week via Germany, S9+20, with a plug from ``A proud
supporter``, http://hfradioreview.com/ --- but could not find a link
on the KBC website; finally searched it out for exact spelling. Lots
of stuff there but ham-oriented. Heard the same announcement once or
twice more during following hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** OKLAHOMA. 88.1, Aug 4 at 1339 UT, caught the tail of a KGOU
Manager`s Minute via KWOU Woodward about some KROU upgrade. To website
for text, and while we are at it, a couple previous ones:


``New Oklahoma City Transmitter Improves Sound
By Dick Pryor • Jul 29, 2019 KGOU --- This is the Manager’s Minute.

We’re pleased to announce installation is complete on the new KROU
transmitter, located on the Spencer/Oklahoma City tower that we lease
from our friends at KFOR Television.

We did this thanks to grant funding from the Anne & Henry Zarrow
Foundation and gifts to Karen’s Legacy Fund, in honor of former KGOU
general manager Karen Holp.

People who listen to KGOU on 105.7 will notice improved audio quality
and a more reliable signal.

The old transmitter, which served us since 1992, is now a backup.

KGOU's "Worldwide Transmitter"
By Dick Pryor • Jul 14, 2019 --- This is the Manager’s Minute.

KGOU broadcasts from five full power transmitters and four
translators, but we also serve listeners through our “worldwide
transmitter”: http://www.kgou.org

On our website, you can find news stories and resources, community
events, streaming audio, weather, the program schedule and information
about our programs.

You can donate online, and also find staff bios, station history,
awards, and job opportunities.

A New Look and a New Sound • May 6, 2019 Manager's Minute
Listen 0:59 === KGOU has a new look; Morning Edition has a new sound

This is the Manager’s Minute. Consistency is one of the most important
attributes of a successful organization. As broadcasters, we know our
listeners expect us to be consistently good and reliable, but also
willing to innovate and change.

This week NPR’s Morning Edition has a new sound. It’s a fresh take on
the traditional Morning Edition theme - warm, engaging, energetic and
modern. The new theme music was inspired by the work of BJ Leiderman
and is designed to be as engaging and ear-catching as possible to
reflect Morning Edition's dynamic mix of engaging, informative and
often surprising stories about today's world.

Also, we’ve freshened KGOU’s brand image. Our previous logo served us
well for 15 years, but now KGOU has a new look that you'll be seeing
online, on social media, in our newsletters and in our business and
promotional materials.

Designed by KGOU listener J.D. Reeves, our new logo is clean, bold and
smart, with a distinctive shape and the hint of a retro feel.

We think it communicates strength, stability and creativity. And, of
course, it reminds everyone KGOU is still Your NPR Source.

Take a look online and email manager@kgou.org to let us know what our
new KGOU logo says to you. Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute,
I’m Dick Pryor.``

Well, I miss the old Morning Edition sound. As for KROU, it`s still
licensed for only 1.6 kW ERP, and impossible in Enid next to local
105.5 translator, not to mention stronger Alva on 105.7; however, we
do get KROU on caradio not too far east or south from Enid, which
remains a larger OKcity with no local public radio signal, unlike many
smaller towns with translators or satellites of KGOU or KUCO. After
expressing some interest in serving 50K Enid, when I greeted him as
new GM, he later said it was not going to happen. So we are stuck with
KOSU only at non-local strength, iffy to receive inside buildings
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DXLD)

** U K [and non]. 12005, Aug 4 at 1757, VP signal in SW Asian
language, 1800 time pips a few sex late, and more. Aoki shows first
it`s Radio Farda at 1300-1800 via Woofferton; but then BBC in French
via ASCENSION - I did not note any site or language switch, it was so
poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: Not confirmed Sat
August 3 before 1500 on HLR GERMANY, 9485-CUSB via UTwente SDR: as
usual, nothing except huge splash from 9490 Romania. But Alan Gale,
England reports at 1454:

``Hi Glenn, No luck hearing World of Radio on 9485 kHz here again
today, but I decided to check out a few webSDRs and see if I could
find it. Most just showed the loud signal on 9490 with the exception
of this one in Finland, I could hear you on there at 1450 UT, not
great, but definitely recognisable:

The SDRs to the south, even the ones in Germany, seem to be dominated
by the Romanian station, but thankfully this one at least picks up
something. Alan``

And at 1504: ``Hi Glenn, Thought I'd check out a few more of the
Scandinavian webSDRs; this one is run by OH5AE and has you readable, a
short mp3 is attached. Still lots of splatter, but much better. At
least we know where the signal is going to now:

WOR 1993 confirmed here Sat Aug 3 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, which was on a
few minutes earlier with IS/ID loop, but WOR joined only slightly
late, just in time to hear me say in intro ``1993``; fair.

Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 4 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG S9+10/20.

Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 4 at 0340 on WA0RCR, Wentzville MO, 1860-AM,
as I am quoting Bob Biermann, about 23 minutes into, so started circa
0317; good S9+10 including noise level. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780

*NOTE: IRRS might be missing due to transmitter shortage in Romania;
and Aussie Tim Gaynor tells us August 4:

``Unique Radio off air till further notice due to technical issues ---
Hi, Unique Radio 5045 and 3210 kHz, Gunnedah NSW, will be off air due
to several technical issues. Faults in the antenna and also a fault in
the DC power supply to the transmitter have made it necessary to go
off air for a while. These will be fixed as time permits and also will
let you know when coming back on air. WINB broadcasts as per usual and
podcasts.also continue.
Best regards, Tim Gaynor, Unique Radio, Gunnedah NSW, Australia``

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 7490.1v, UT Sun Aug 4 at 0023, WBCQ unreadable vs noise
level; also detectable on 6160.1v, but not on 5130.4v vs even higher
NL, so suspect Area 51 is missing unless it`s now Area 61 (Glenn

** U S A. 9395, UT Sun Aug 4 at 0008, S9+20 YL in French on WRMI,
quelle? O, it`s RFPI as now sked this hour, allegedly also on 5950,
both emitting System G. It`s rather puzzling how some European
broadcasters would rather relay via WRMI to N America in non-English,
e.g. also Italians (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 1160, August 3 at 0612 UT, KSL Salt Lake City is
unusually weak; normally the dominant night signal, as to be expected
for a 50/50 kW U1 = non-direxional clear channel station at only ~800
miles. Now it`s bothered by SAH and some station with Mexican music.
If Unitedstatesian, besides two weak Floridians, per year-old NRC AM
Log (new one soon to be published), that could only be KCTO Cleveland
MO, 230 watts at night direxional. WRTH shows only a single possible
Mexican, 10 kW XEQIN, San Quintín BCN. IRCA Mexican Log says night
power unknown, and four other 1160s have evidently defected to FM.

Getting back to KSL, suspect it is ailing, running low power. Another
check Aug 4 at 0520 UT, music unlikely KSL, but a SAH at 168/minute =
2.8 Hz probably caused by KSL against the otherstation. KSL is
somewhat northerly; attenuated aurorally? Possibly, but similar
latitude altho closer 850 KOA Denver seems normal (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 1190, August 3 at 0611 UT, Catholic talk is dominating with
some fades, as usual at night. KDMR Kansas City with EWTN is supposed
to be 500 watts direxional at night, but I suspect may be on 5000 watt
day power, and/or: KDMR night pattern has a notch at 205 degrees, but
we are somewhat beyond that, close to due SW = 225; FCC pattern map
shows major broad lobe centered about 260 degrees

** CHINA. Local line noise level up to S9+20 has been unrelenting,
worst between 3 and 9 MHz, so what little DX there might be on the
summer tropical bands is blotted; ergo I amuse myself by surveying
once again, CNR1 jammers above 9 MHz; never the same assortment from
one day to the next, or even one hour to the next, thanks, presumably
to the unpredictability of Sound of Hope frequency selexions among its
known scores of choices, keeping the Jamming Department at CNR on
their toes. August 2 at 1245 I start hearing CNR1 talk in Chinese,
u.o.s., at a wide variety of levels:

9230, S7-S8
10160, S6-S3
10920, S4-S6
11100, S5-S7
11120, S3-S5
11430, JBA music? else?
11460, S2-S3
11540, S4
11580, S4-S5 vs CCI target
11640, S4-S6 vs CCI target
11785, S5-S6
11825, S6-S8 vs CCI target
12190, S3; now at 1256 with music from CNR1
12880, S2-S3
13070, S3-S5
13150, JBA carrier
13550, S3-S4
13890, timesignal to 1300*
Then no others found up to 16 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13690.049, August 2 at 1304, sorethumbly
off-frequency carrier while surveying CNR1 jammers before the hour,
now back to measure it in Chinese talk; from VOA this hour only via
SAIPAN, typical inaccuracy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2097.3, August 2 at 0620 UT, CW beacon A every ten seconds,
audible despite storm noise level worse than line noise at this
frequency; from anywhere *but* Quartzsite AZ. Again audible same
August 3 at 0353 check. Have not been able to hear the W weather
beacon around 4102+ kHz, however (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 18120-USB, Aug 2 at 1842, at least one hamsig on this band,
tnx to sporadic E, ragchew QSO but can`t hear his contact. Talking
about activity in AM on 7293, mainly by old-timers dying off and using
antique equipment, including him with a 1953 xtal-controlled unit;
finally ID at cambio sounds like W7YM, without fonetix. If so, it`s
Henry G. Laughlin in Lewistown MT.

18140-USB, then I hear another, Aug 2 at 1844, saying temp is a hot
33C = 89F despite his 5,200-foot elevation in north central part of
state implying it`s AZ where Phœnixians escape their heat. Contact
unheard but called Steve, HP9SAM as in Panamá; own call sounds like
KW6J/7; if so, he is from Corona del Mar, CA, Brian C. Stapleton.

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday
cycle, so freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 7490.1v, August 3 at 0000, music unseems William Tell
Overture as I try to hear Angela And Allan Weiner WorldWide on WBCQ,
but buried in local hi line noise level. By 0004 I`m on the webcast,
now with W.T.O. but sounds slightly different and runs late until
0005, when it`s The TimTron hosting instead of A&AW. Says now
quadricasting on 3265, 5130, 6160 and 7490 (but if I can`t get 7490,
forget the rest!). He doesn`t have AW`s proper theme music so he found
another W.T.O. performance on YT.

People are wondering about Superstation 9330? It`s not 100% complete
yet, even tho it was on the air for a while. Transmitter is
water-cooled, but additional air conditioning is needed to be
upgraded. Antenna system is not 100% complete either; and not sure how
properly it funxion: so shut down until these questions be answered.

Sounds like he opens a beer -- no, he says it`s cold H2O as doctor
forbids him any alcohol. On the mend from Lyme disease, tapering off

Glad to be on new 49mb frequency, and reminisces how, long ago, he and
other hams in Massachusetts wanted to play music so did it there
instead of 40m. 0013 music break with a Leon Russell song. 0021 two
belches; imitates how SSB sounds off-tuned plus and minus, as he
prefers AM mode. Is going to tweak the 6160v transmitter for better
power. ``Nifty`` 6160 is better than 5130 until band ``goes long``
when 5130 still holds up over shorter distances.

0032 another W.T.O. version, jazzed up! Ha. 0038 another song break,
``Ring of Fire`` by Social Distortion. [0042 do I feel a quick
earthquake tremor in Enid??] Another song until 0047 outroed as ``See
My Way``. 0049 talking about Tesla coils, belch. 0050 a cough and 7490
webcast stops! Must be delicate connexion there; at first suspected
problem at my end. 0053 I think to try the Area 51 webcast and it is
still running with TTT playing yet another version of W.T.O, from a
video he says is worth seeing. 0056 talking about feeding and adopting
a stray chat [sic]; belch, and SFX, woman talking briefly presumably
Mrs. Tron. Over without an outro or goodbye at 0100. Said he kept
computer off so no e-mail; and no phone calls either.

John Carver also monitored the hour on an axual radio:

``Tonight's show started a bit late this evening on 7490 with TimTron
as the host. He says they are broadcasting on 3265, 5130, 6160 and
7490. He repeats what Allan previously said about the cooling problems
with the new transmitter and the continuing antenna work. He also
states that his Lyme disease seems to be on the run and he is feeling
better and they are cutting his medication back some. Then into some

Some talk about 49 meters and why he prefers AM for ham work. He also
said that in general 6160 was doing better than 5130 at getting out to
people. Evidently he hasn't listened to it from my QTH. Then more
music. Some more talk about 6160. He must really like it. Some talk
about Tesla coils and how he modified one to play music. Then he
played a recording of two Tesla coils playing the William Tell

Program was off the air at 0100. Some dead air for a bit on 7490 then
into Brother Stair. A minute or two after that music started and we
had both music and Brother Stair at the same time. John Mid-North

6160v, Aug 3 at 0131, I manage to detect a JBA carrier from this WBCQ
on the air after nothing for several weekdays, vs local HNL (Glenn

** U S A. 9475, August 2 at 1835, no signal from WTWW-1, nor on night
frequency 5830, but could be on below noise level. Let alone 5085
WTWW-2. 31m propagation is OK with audibles: 9395 TOMBS via WRMI; 9265
JBA WINB carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, August 3 at 0355 UT, heavy SAH typical of KGYN vs WJNL
as previously measured, this time about 168/minute, or 2.8 Hz;
national commercial, but then ``94.5 WJNL`` ID and back to Jim
Bohannon show live. So 50 kW daytimer in Kingsley MI, Traverse City
market is still cheating as first noted here a sesquimonth ago. 94.5
would be their FM affiliate in Mackinaw City (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

UNIDENTIFIED. Correxion: this should have started with 9320-9340, not
9320-9330; fixed:

9320-9340, August 2 at 0042, wideband weak whine centered about 9330,
making me wonder if it`s something leaking out of WBCQ-6 Superstation,
which has been off the air for further antenna work. On
AWWW last week, AW said it would not resume until late August, but a
twit from him August 1 via Artie Bigley said it would be ``soon``...
