Logs
** CHINA [and non]. 6145, Dec 16 at 1437, CNR1 echoing at S9+10, plus
fast SAH as it double-jams RTI Chinese at 14-17, stronger than any
Asian signal on 49m; // single CNR1 on 6180 also jamming RTI at 10-16;
nevermind additional ChiCom stations also sked: 6145 PBS Qinghai; 6180
CNR-17 Kazakh via Lingshi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Sunday December 16 at 0713, RHC in undermodulated but
S9+10 Esperanto. ALL other RHC frequencies are off. So weekly Es`po
too has revered to summer timing of 0700 instead of 0800 as on Arnie`s
original B-18 schedules. Wolfgang Bueschel, via N American remotes,
also heard Esperanto on 6100 until 0730. Something`s always wrong(?)
at RHC. Other alleged Esperanto Sunday times are 1600 on 11760 (also
15140? Missed checking again); and 2330 on 15730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, Sun Dec 16 at 1442 during RHC `En Contacto`, Arnie
speaks so fast it`s almost like an artificial speedup; pause for co-
host Marta RÃos to read slowly and clearly enunciated, a break Arnie
wrote for her listing the meterbands in use, ending with ``29``, a
typo instead of 19, she does not even recognize as such. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15282.985, Dec 16 at 1554, VP S1 scratchy signal with trace
of music, likely a spur, but from what? Hardly anything of interest on
19m any more in the propagation doldrums. I soon make a match to 15230
RHC! But no match ~53 kHz below around 15177.

So could it be a spur out of the other RHC on 15140? Yes! There is a
match on 14996.930, i.e. ~143 kHz above and below. Both spurs are
really wobbly. These compensate nicely for lack of any FM spurs on 13
MHz band today. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 11629.76, Dec 16 at 1425, R. Kuwait Qur`an, pretty music
with no het at S9-S7, always off-frequency yet I see some logs of it
as ``11630`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 800, Dec 16 at 1413 UT, gospel-huxter in progress, so
KQCV OKC is already running unlike Dec 13 when it cut on at *1415
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.019, Dec 16 at 1423, VOT English finishing with IS,
measured almost on-frequency just in time before cutoff.

11815.800, Dec 16 at 1423, VOT Turkish is the one way off-frequency
here today during commentary with crowd noise, bursts of excitement,
perhaps a silly ballgame (aptal top oyunu), or wrestling? Better
signal than 12035.019 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1960 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday December 16 at 0426 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+20
but noisy, about 13 minutes into show so started circa 0413. Next:
2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 5950 to WNW, 9395 to NNW
0400vUT Monday WBCQ *5130v Area 51 to WSW
0430 UT Monday WRMI *9955 to SSE
0930 UT Monday Unique 5045 low-power NSW Australia
* also webcast; direct linx to these and many others at:
Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5850 & 7730, Sunday December 16 at 0712, no signals from
WRMIs; while 5950 is still RFI in Spanish. Latest skedgrid confirms
the pair are now running 0800-0900 UT Sundays only, with `Shortwave
Radiogram` and at 0830 WORLD OF RADIO (which I have yet to confirm,
myself; gotta sleep sometime).

So `Broad Spectrum Radio` is gone again, ex 0700-0800. For a while
there was another airing on WRMI, but nowhere on sked now. Quite
unclear what`s going on with James Branum, who apparently has been
changing hats; his BSR website remains unupdated since June, and his
disgraced FB too except for one entry dated Nov 18 when his latest
thing was the anti-war Objector Church, on their disgraced FB linking
to his intro of it recorded earlier in November in Oakland CA:
https://www.facebook.com/objector.church/videos/1939819562762773/
which is a 5-minute off-mike audio-only ``video``. in which he says he
is starting that up in OKC, see
https://objector.church
--- so is he no longer a Mennonite, pastor?

Another of his projects is part 15 in far NW OKC on 1610 and 88.7:
http://broadspectrumradio.com/sonador-radio/
but on my occasional visits to the area, have not been able to hear
it; suspended? Without permission, it`s auto-streaming anyway a sermon
of his from the website (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Dec 16 at 1552, trace of talk from WJHR, back
from 15550-USB, and a good idea too, as the Sudanese services occupy
15550-AM at 1500-1600; so is WJHR back to stay on 15555-USB at all
hours? I had them on 15550-USB Dec 5, 7 and 8, and no one else but Ivo
ever reported WJHR on 15550. Many other days inaudible on either, but
what would you expect from a 1 kW PEP ham transmitter pretending to be
an SWBC station? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 9645, Sunday December 16 at 0720, Catholic chanting, poor
but better than anything else from Europe on 31 m, i.e. VR`s weekly
liturgy in Ukrainian, sked 0705-0800, 250 kW at 50 degrees so way off
-beam thisaway, another SMG anomaly; to be followed by Romanian
liturgy at 0810-0920 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** BRAZIL [and non]. 9630.5, Dec 15 at 2345, R. Aparecida is
reactivated here, split frequency causing het with stronger 9630.0
Chinese, i.e. CRI Cantonese this hour via Jinhua 831 site (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 6100, Dec 16 at 0009, a whistling song. Probably CRI in
Portuguese aimed the long way NW from Beijing site to far Brasil; but
CRI in Sinhala via Kunming is also here. HFCC adds Korea South; EiBi
and NDXC/Aoki show instead, Korea North (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 7430, Dec 15 at 2340, YL in Special Chinese, probably
language lesson during this CRI Khmer service hour, 100 kW, 200
degrees from Nanning site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9535, Dec 15 at 2346, Chinese at S5-S9, rather than any
trace of RHCuba in Spanish, supposed to start here at 2200 --- Commies
vs Commies! As CNR1 has to jam RFA Tibetan via Kuwait until 2400 (and
incidentally, CRI English via Kunming also scheduled) (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545, Sat Dec 15 at 1502, JBA carrier, among only
three audible on band with 17615, 17700; 17545 is also JBA carrier
when checked at 1546 via UTwente SDR. This is the mysterious target
broadcast for Eritrea I discovered last week, and denominated only as
``Alsmood`` by Jeff White, RMI broker, Saturdays only at 1500-1600 via
Issoudun, FRANCE. Info collected so far is in DXLD 18-50.

I was not expecting to hear it any better this week, so an hour ahead,
I reminded members of the WOR, BDXC-UK and HCDX groups:

``Please check 17545, 1500-1600 Saturday only via France, as
discovered last week. Little is known about it except it is weekly for
Eritrea. What is the ID exactly? How is Alsmood pronounced? Is it
definitely in Tigrinya, and/or some other language(s)? Is any contact
info announced, website or e-mail? Any further clues to its source?
73, Glenn Hauser``

Thanks to everyone who participated! Their full replies will be
rounded up in DXLD 18-51. Some significant bits:

``Recording of three Arabic IDs here:
http://www.intervalsignals.net/17545kHz.mp3
Somewhat noisy, the last one is a bit clearer though.
David Kernick, Interval Signals Online``

``It wasn't audible here but I had a weak to fair signal on an SDR rx
in South Africa from tune-in at 1535. Typical Horn of Africa music,
followed by talks in Arabic, including several IDs in Arabic. Time
pips at 1555 and what sounds like news headlines in Arabic, over
music. Off at 1600. The IDs sounded like "Huna sawt al samood" or
"idaat al samood". Google translates al-samood (or al-smood) as
"Stability" so could its translated name perhaps be "Voice of
Stability" or something like that? 73s Dave Kenny``

``I also see it translated into "steadfastness", a variant that looks
more apt in this context. Such a name further raises the question
about origin and agenda of these broadcasts, because it suggests
something else than yet another project by exiled journalists like
Radio Erena and Radio Assenna. And this after the latest developments
in Eritrea, with Afwerki having lost the war with Ethiopia as excuse
for anything. Kai Ludwig`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [and non]. 6090.00, Dec 15 at 2329, Anguilla is off leaving a
JBA carrier on-frequency, presumably VIRI`s Spanish service from 2320.
But at 0007 Dec 16, double-Chinese is atop barely recognizable
Spanish. It appears that at 0000 something came on 6090 requiring
jamming, but nothing accounting for that in the skeds. However, CNR2
via Golmud 916 site at about 96-east is registered for 2055-0300.

0224 next check I have one undermodulated S6-S8 signal on 6090.00. I
have been trying to match reports of R. Bandeirantes, Brasil being
heard on 6090 at 0220 in Portuguese, but if this is it now, should
have been audible earlier and likely off-frequency like its former
9645 and 11925 channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.931, Dec 16 at 0226, VP carrier from presumed
Radio Madagasikara, just where I usually measure it, following a lower
deviation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1570, Dec 15 at 2009, once again I am checking for early
skywave from XERF, like the past two afternoons, 3+ hours before
sunset --- but listening until 2023, it does not emerge from the
jumble. Shows how variable conditions can be even for daytime MW DX
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 5980, Dec 16 at 0010, poor signal in Spanish about a
balneario, so RRI probably plugging a travel contest. EiBi says this
hour is for Venezuela in particular; whence a lot of subjects would be
glad to get to refuge in Romania (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. See USA: 1520 KSIB

** U S A. 7296-USB, Sat Dec 15 at 1455, NOT LSB (and not AM), some ham
net. Control station seldom gives his call and then not clearly, but
some participants include KC9INK, K9WT, AB5GG. At 1500 another ham,
something like KZ0SB, tries to open the same net: some
confusion/dispute about whichone has rotating NCS duties this week.
``We don`t need both``. W9RAN also mentioned, and the guy who tried to
start the net before 1500 was Dennis. Says this caters to USB on 40m,
low power, mobiles, and net name is: ``Midwest Military Radio
Collectors Group``, Saturdays at 9 am Central; and on the first
Saturday of months they do it in AM mode; see: http://mmrcg.org/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15580, Dec 14 at 2141, VOA is a JBA carrier, during `Music
Time in Africa` on Friday, rather than inbooming. Assuming Greenville
-B is still the site, propagation has really dropped out, shux (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1960 monitoring: Not confirmed the
Saturday Dec 15 at 1531 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 9485-CUSB: No signal
detected at UTwente SDR at the start or end, much less in OK. This
week I do my best to confirm the Saturday 1700 on WRN via WRMI 5950 -
-- but even with ECSS, the JBA carrier is not enough to recognize the
WOR opening theme, let alone some guy talking with my voice. Next:

0400vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0415], ND
0830 UT Sunday WRMI 5850 to NW, 5950 to WNW, 7730 to WNW
1130 UT Sunday HLR 7265-CUSB Germany to WSW
2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 5950 to WNW, 9395 to NNW
0400vUT Monday WBCQ *5130v Area 51 to WSW
0430 UT Monday WRMI *9955 to SSE
0930 UT Monday Unique 5045 low-power NSW Australia
* also webcast; direct linx to these and many others at:

Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Dec 14 at 2210, WRMI with `VORW`, John musing on how
many major SW stations have vanished in the last few years even since
2014y; still past 2230, when one of the three dozen weekly `Wavescam`
airings on WRMI had been scheduled; but now it`s another VORW, Fridays
at 2200-2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST0

** U S A. 9330.008, Dec 15 at 1435, surprised to find TOMBS on WBCQ,
S7-S5, almost on-frequency; had been way higher for a few weeks. Next
check at 2002, climbed up to 9330.051. Transmitter wavers slightly,
difficultizing pinpoint measurements, but there they were at one
particular instant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.0, Dec 15 at 2334 JBA carrier, presumed the Chinese
this hour only, yet to appear even in Aoki/NDXC, as there is no trace
of WBCQ on 7490+, nor on 9330+, nor on 5130+. But it may not be
propagating, as not even 7850-CUSB CHU is audible now (but OK on 3330
-CUSB). By 2337, however, `BCQ appears to be on causing a het between
two JBA carriers. Another check at 0006 Dec 16: NO signals at all on
7490, but WBCQ 5130.49 is there, VP with music.

WBCQ was having tech problems last night, as John Carver reported at
0120 about `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, from 0100 UT Saturday Dec 15:

``Very poor signal on 7490 this evening. Another program on 5130 and
no copy on 9330 tonight either. No dead air to start, just sitar
music. It does sound like the transmitter goes down several times.
Music moves into the theme from Peter Gunn then into some music that I
don't recognize. Theme song for AWWW comes up at 0106. Signal is
bouncing between S1 and S3. Tom Barna interrupts at 0110 and announces
that all the internet feeds at the station are down and that there is
no streaming of anything at the station. Says that Larry Will is
working on the problem and hopes to have things fixed by tomorrow.
Announces that tonight's AWWW will be a rerun of an earlier show and
indeed when the show finally starts it is one from October. With the
poor signal and a repeat to boot my report ends here. John, Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, Dec 15 at 2335, WWRB is already on this Saturday with
gospel huxter at S9+25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Dec 16 at 0032, WTWW-2 playing inorganic
Xmasmx; must have just signed on, as vacant around 0000. 0035 `Theater
Organ in the Ozarx` starts only a bit late, so I bring up the webcast
for stereo. Well, sorta stereo, but Bob Heil is playing all Xmasmx
from really scratchy records, which at first I took to be audio
breakup. Improves later, but the $ tereo is somewhat unbalanced, ends
about 0104 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1070, Dec 16 at 0000 UT plug for a ``whatwebelieve``
website, ID mentioning Pensacola and vanishes. It`s WNVY Cantonment
FL, address in Pensacola, U1 15000/28 watts, Critical Hours 2300
watts, which must have just ended. On E-W antenna, no problem from
off-frequency KFTI Wichita at right angle, already cut from 10 to 1 kW
and U2 cut to N/S night pattern. Cantonment is NW of Pensacola, lost
only a few miles from Alabama across the Perdido River border (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1450, Dec 14 at 2207 UT, Missouri Net News outro, and ``Good
Time Oldies, 1450, K-O-K-O, ko-ko``, dominating for now is this 1 kW
graveyarder from Warrensburg MO, pre-sunset (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 1520, Dec 14 at 2153 UT on R75 with E-W longwire,
nearby KOKC OKC talk is hardly dominant; by 2155 sports talker is
atop, so is it KOLM Minnesota? 2159 Fox Sports net ID, and then
``1520, KSIB, Creston, Iowa``, which is a 1 kW ND daytimer.

There has also been a JBA 1 kHz het which at 2204 I pinpoint to 1521,
not 1519, ergo a bit of the 2,000,000 watts out of Saudi Arabia, more
than an hour pre-sunset here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM. 9839.77, Dec 15 at 2342, VOV S9 in English,
historico/politico talk, then into a Vietnamese song segment
introduced by a few notes of Scott Joplin! Is a perpetual off-
frequency, but Aoki/NDXC and EiBi just say ``9840``, in use 1000-1530
& 2200-2400 including English at 1000, 1130, 1230, 1330, 1500 and 2330
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
