Logs
** CUBA. 6100, Sept 11 at 0608, this RHC English is only S6-S8 and
undermodulated, very much inferior to the others, 6165, 6060 and 6000.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Sept 11 at 2005, Radio Martà in Spanish and
RHC in Brazuguese, about equal levels making slow SAH of less than 1
Hz, taking turns dominating over each other, and not much jamming
noise if any. If this is for Europe as scheduled, why are they
speaking with a pronounced Brazilian accent? Even the icon on homepage
leading to language sexions employs the flag of Portugal, not Brasil.

I have speculated about why this collision was authorized and
prolonged now for more than a month. Here`s another: skip distances.
Beyond short groundwave range from Bauta or wherever near Habana, most
of Cuba will not be getting much from RHC before the first hop comes
down toward the east end. So Martà can crash right into the ``dead
zone`` of RHC without Cubans hearing much of RHC anyway (unlike those
of us outside). Whether RHC may be getting side QRM from Greenville in
Portugal or Brasil targets is another matter; and the Cuban commies
remain faced with the choice of jamming themselves along with Martà or
letting it go.

Watch out whether Hurricane Florence affect any upcoming Greenville
transmissions! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 11 at 0615, JBA carrier from presumed R.
Kiribati, getting to be a regular. See also UNID 936 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICIO. 820, Sept 11 at 1217, canned ID amid romantic music with
heavy beat, as ``Canal ochocientos veinte, ABC Radio``. It`s been
making a SAH with WBAP of slightly under 1 Hz, about 55 fades per
minute, first noticed a few minutes earlier but peaking now with WBAP
nulled as much as possible.

It`s XEABCA, Mexicali BCN. WRTH 2018 shows 3.5/0.5 kW, named instead
Radio Frontera. IRCA Mexican Log of 2015 (will there ever be a new
one?) contains both names. Not bad at a kilomile, especially if on
night power as it should be, and non-direxional per NRC Pattern Book
of 2013 (a new edition of 2018 has just been published!). But not too
unusual here on SRS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 870, Sept 11 at 1202, XETAR, La Voz de la Sierra
Tarahumara, sign-on procedure with many IDs in Spanish and native
languages, also singing, mentions of CDI parent agency [concesionario:
COMISION NACIONAL PARA EL DESARROLLO DE LOS PUEBLOS INDÃGENAS]. On the
DX-398 it`s separable from WWL remnants. I`ve seen its website before,
but looking for it in the WRTH 2018, on page 281, 870 XETAR is keyed
as station CH18) in Chihuahua state -- but the referenced entry on
page 284 for CH18) is obviously some other station, in Cuauhtemoc! If
XETAR be somewhere else in the CH sexion, I haven`t found it, but I do
notice another likely typo: CH12) as ``readiocanon800@latinmail.com``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1947 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday September
11 at 2040, the 2030 on WRMI 7780, tho JBA on the PL-880 portable.
Supposedly also on 5950, but inaudible.

Supposedly also on both an hour later at 2130 Tuesday, but straining
to hear on the home rig vs. high local noise level, definitely on
neither: 7780 with talk in language, maybe German, which would be RAE
relay; JBA 5950 also talk but unseems //, maybe Spanish, not WOR.

The WRMI frequency grid shows #1 7780 indeed in RAE German at 21-22
(really M-F only) from System F, while the same hour on #5 5950 as
with System D. Consulting the System D program sked below: it still
shows two hours of variety programming 20-22 daily on both 5950 and
7780, NOT including any RAE, and, yes, including WOR at both 2030 and
2130 Tue.

The System F program schedule directly contradicts this with RAE
German at 21-22 on 7780, as we were hearing. With 14 transmitters (tho
not all of them in use) and 12(?) Systems, the operation must be just
too complex to manage 100% accurately.

WOR NOT confirmed Tuesday Sept 11 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.1, just BS,
altho new WOR has been available and notified some 23 hours earlier.

** U S A. 5830, Sept 11 at 0606, no signal from WTWW-1, no loss with
PPPP/SFAW, or is it propagation? No, neighbour 5935 WWCR is inbooming
at S9+40/50, so WTWW is OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, Sept 11 at 0611, S9+20 of dead air. Could WWCR-1 be on
the way to an overnight comeback? Program sked as of Sept 1 still
shows WWCR-1 totally off at 0400-1200 (Monday 0500-), including the
3215 span until 0900. Of course, 3215 is also a WWRB frequency, but
never at this hour unless a test (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 880-CUSB, Sept 11 at 1200 UT, partial ID for ``Western
Indian Network, Tuba City``, I.e. KTBA 760, the sibling station to the
one I am really hearing, KHAC, Tse Bonito NM, 10000/430 watts U1, the
perpetual day-power cheater.

The Tuba City AZ station I remember when I was in Navajoland several
years ago, was midband circa 1050? I guess they moved. Hunting for it
in the new NRC AM Log I checked the huge cross-reference by city and
found on page 246, Tse Bonito and Tuba City right next to each other
in alphabetical order. What are the chances of that?! Log also shows
both with the same address in Window Rock AZ. But I do not find a
Western Indian Network among Station Groups listed on page 301, nor
among the Networks on page 291 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 936, Sept 11 at 0620, I have been bandscanning up from
bottom of MW band, with east-west longwire on the R75 set at 9 kHz
steps, but minus 1 kHz from TA/TP channels, to hear any carriers on
USB tuning, besides 846 Kiritimati. Before dozing off at midband, I do
hit one on 936, in fact stronger than 846 but still JBA with no
modulation. It`s right-on frequency, so surely not a local artifact.

Consulting the WRTH TA and TP listings, I conclude it is most likely
SNRT, Agadir, Morocco, where sunrise today is right now: 0621 UT. Of
course, it`s post-sunrise in the rest of Africa and Europe except
maybe Spain with 3 x 20 kW Radio 5. I wonder if the F.Pl of two new
400 kW MW transmitters in Agadir has been consummated? It`s too early
for eastern Australia with 10 kW stations, much too early for China
with 200 KW, but sun set in Auckland NZ already at 0607 altho station
there is only 1 kW. So theoretically, 936 Agadir could be propagating
all the way to NZ now --- 11989 miles short path to Mangawhai, per
crowflies, not onward from here, but along the coasts of Brazil and
Argentina, around Cape Horn and the southern Pacific ocean. Has Bryan
Clark heard it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. This damn Word program I am now using keeps ``auto-
correcting`` my coinages, such as S U P T O R T E D, not ``supported``
as now fixed:

``11840, Sept 5 at 2216, this RHC Spanish frequency with suptorted
modulation == suppressed/distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC``.

Another typo? Correxion, from Sept 7 about 11860: ``at 2036 chocking
Arabic`` supposed to be choking. Something`s sometimes wrong with my
log reports (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 10 at 0603, RHC English is somewhat suptorted
asserting that ``The US is the threat to humankind`` --- which with
acting president Drumpf is no longer so far-fetched. // 6100 has
lowest mod level but not distorted; 6165 = 6060 both very good.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, Sept 9 at 1546 UT, Enid`s only local TV signal,
but with no local origination whatsoever, K17JN-D, the 3ABN Adventist
network, has semi-recovered after several days of black screens and
silence on all six subchannels: now only 2, 4 and 6, while usual
programming has resumed on 1, 3, and 5. Still the same at 0315 UT Sept
11 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Storm noise level has abated enough to worthwhilize tuning
for ND beacons, IDs per dxinfocentre.com:

281 kHz, Sept 10 at 0621 UT, DMO, best heard tuned to 280 or 282; is
25 watts from SeDalia MO, rather than my first guess Des Moines;

314 kHz, Sept 10 at 0625 UT, CVY, but tuned to 312, 25 watts from Fort
Riley-Cavalry KS; neither name appears in the most detailed large
scale road atlas. It is a real military reservation, not a regular
town, between Manhattan and Junxion City. Specializing in horses?

326 kHz, Sept 10 at 0627 UT, MA, tuned to 324, 400 watts from Midland
TX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1946 monitoring: confirmed on WA0RCR,
Wentzville MO, 1860-AM, UT Sunday Sept 9 at 0329 about 6 minutes into
show so started circa 0323, S9+20/30, quite good for under 1 kW. Try
this around central and eastern North America, especially as the storm
noise season diminishes. Before and after WOR there is lots and lots
of ham info.

WOR 1946 confirmed Sunday Sept 9 at 2150 the new 2130 WRMI broadcast
on 7780, gh voice JBA.

The UT Monday 0130.5 on WRMI 5850 & 7780, which had been one of our
best-coverage broadcasts, confirmed replaced by something else from
Sept 10 as shown on skedgrid.

WOR 1946 confirmed UT Monday Sept 10 at 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ
5129.8, poor. The following 0330 UT Monday on WRMI 9955 not checked,
but confirmed on webcast; before 0430 could not reconnect to webcast
to reconfirm the 0400 web-only repeat.

John Carver, mid-north Indiana reported at 0400 UT Sept 10: ``5130
worked well but I checked 9955 again this evening and again there was
nothing there. No sign of a signal. Adjusted the pre-selector and the
antenna tuner.``

Since WOR 1946 was a pre-produxion, this week I move ahead recording
of new 1947 to Monday afternoon instead of Tuesday, as I need to catch
up with almost two weeks of material to cram in. This also takes
better advantage of the remaining good WRMI broadcast across North
America, UT Tuesday at 0030 on 7730, which had been toward the tail
end of the repeat cycle. Now it`s the first SW airing.

WORLD OF RADIO 1947 contents: Australia non, Bahrain, Bangladesh,
Bulgaria, Cuba and non, Indonesia, Kiritimati, Madagascar, Nigeria,
Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Sudan non, Taiwan non, UK and non, USA
[from DXLD 18-36];
Australia, Brasil, China, Cuba and non, Germany, Korea South,
Maldives, North America, Saar, UK and non, USA, Vatican, Europirate 5005;
and the propagation outlook [to be in DXLD 18-37]

Confirmed UT Tue Sept 11 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG. Playback seems fine
altho I have had one complaint about sexions repeating within the
program, apparently on an audio link. Is anyone else having this
problem, or confirming not having it? Next:

** U S A. 5950, Sunday Sept 9 at 2332, WRMI 5950 has faded in enough
to tell it is in Spanish, but not // 7335 Radio Marti. Supposedly WRMI
is relaying RM during September Sundays at 2000-2400 on 5950 to carry
baseball games of interest to Cubans, but there is no BB on 7335,
rather music and IDs; whatever is on 5950 is not play-by-play either.
I suppose exact hours of games will vary depending on time zone of
venues. Per Jeff White at EDXC Bratislava, another RM relay on 5950 is
Tue/Wed at 2300-0200, presumably one 3-hour span rather than two. For
these WRMI employs #3 at 160 degrees, while the rest of the time 5950
is #5 transmitter at 285 degrees. Putting any exile or Marti
programming on a frequency other than 9955 runs the risk of drawing
jamming, which we certainly do not need on 5950, as it would no doubt
expand beyond the RM hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780 & 5950, Sept 10 at 2053, I am trying to figure out
what`s going out from these JBA WRMIs, as Brother Scare was on them
last week, contrary to skedgrid showing variety of programming on both
at 2000-2200. Now I am hearing some music on both, but not //; one of
them Oldies? Neither // 9330 WBCQ BS, even allowing for asynchrony
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday Sept 9 at 0623, WTWW-2 again with classic
rock rather than Southern Talk in the Midnight. You never know how
late this will stay on or whether it will be on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9450-USB, Sept 10 at 0612, very poor 2-way in Arabish,
Intruders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9892-USB, Sept 10 at 1440, poor 2-way in unID language,
perhaps Brazuguese, intruders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 5040, Sept 8 at 0648, RHC is still on with dead air at S9+10,
having failed to turn off transmitter at scheduled 0600, leaving
English repeats to continue one more hour on the other four of The
Cuban Five, on 49m. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Friday Sept 7 at 1950, RHC is still here,
colliding with Radio Marti, making that medium SAH from slightly
different frequencies. At 2005 I can tell that RHC is in proper
language Portuguese; at 2036 chocking Arabic; 12000, which came up
well before 2100 yesterday, is not on today at 2038.

11860, Sept 7 at 2128, now Radio Marti with a silly ballgame, and
still SAH from RHC.

11860, Sat Sept 8 at 2010, Radio Marti is off again for the weekend,
audiblizing RHC in Portuguese without CCI; not sure if some of the
background noise is still jamming against self (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 15535-15540-15545, Sept 8 at 1841, DRM noise averaging S8,
so R. Kuwait may have been semi-decodable in English; most of the
time, so little signal that it`s hard to tell if DRM or mere band
noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, UT Sun Sept 9 at 0020, The Mighty KBC on
reactivated Sept-May frequency, after a summer on 9925, via Nauen,
GERMANY. Classic rock, of course, S9+10/20, no QRM. Will be much less
subject to propagation disturbances than 9925; however, this week,
9925 should have been good like 9420 Greece (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. Adrian Sainsbury, RNZI, replied Sept 7 to my unID 9760
DRM, and 7425 running past 1300 as detailed in my last report:

``Hello Glenn, September 6 is the first Wednesday/Thursday in the
month and the day for RNZI transmitter maintenance. 2230 (Wed)-0600
(Thu) UT. It is routine to check all the frequencies in current use
and some due for future use.

The transmission past 1300 on 7425 was an operational error. The
transmitter was left not connected to the PC which drives the
frequency schedule. Regards Adrian`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11904.9, Sept 9 at *0031:17, SLBC offset carrier as
usual cuts on late, S4-S5 with some music JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1946 monitoring: confirmed Friday
September 7 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.1v; unfortunately, I was drowned
out by the cacophony of the Brother Scare vesper service which
normally occupies this hour --- WBCQ finally put me on, but neglected
to suppress the BS audio! This has happened before. I e-mailed
boardops and AW ASAP, but it continued until 2400 when AWWW took over
9330 without the self-QRM. I could not be sure it had been latest 1946
instead of 1945, until 2347 when I could detect the reading about
KYND.

Also confirmed Sat Sept 8 after 1230 on Unique Radio, Australia, via
WINB, Pennsylvania on 9265V, S7 with deep fading to S2 impairing
readability, and due to wobble one can`t even it out with SSB tuning.

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports:
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, Sept. 8:
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2018/09/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_8.html
0631-0700 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, fair signal
Wrong frequency announcement:"...HLR SWSce on 7265", instead of 6190``

Sat Sept 8 from 1431 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 6190-USB via Utwente
SDR, WOR inaudible, until a trace at 1456 recheck. Alan Gale, England,
reports: ``Hi Glenn, Very poor reception on 6190 today, HLR was
audible around 1300 UT, but then faded out completely and didn't
reappear again until around 1445 UT, when I could just about make out

** U S A. 9395, September 8 at 0629 on WRMI, I listen to the self-
absorbed Bob Biermann for a few minutes during his `Your Weekend
Show`, saying he is ``finishing up the last bit of my secular work``,
to concentrate on ministry as an Anglican, in which he got a promotion
5 years ago. One of his agenda is getting back to Nevis to help expand
that gospel FM station he talked about before, (since 820 AM Radio
Paradise of fake-news TruNews Rick Wiles is going nowhere). Also
setting up churches in needy communities. Another is a non-radio
station,
http://ancientwordradio.org
where we learn who he really is:

``Welcome to Ancient Word Radio. We are here to help you in your daily
Christian walk, with music and programs designed to uplift, encourage
and edify the Body of Christ. Ancient Word Radio is for those that are
looking for an alternative to much of what is found in the Internet
today, with an emphasis on traditional and liturgical faith
backgrounds.

Ancient Faith [sic] Radio was founded by the Rt. Rev. Robert S.
Biermann. Bishop Biermann has been a broadcaster since the early
1970âs, and has extensive experience in On-Air, Programming, Marketing
and Engineering. He has built a number of stations in his 46+ year
career.

Ancient Word Radio is a free online service that features a live
stream and a number of programs âon demand.â The station caters to
Traditional Anglicans, Lutherans and other traditional church
backgrounds. Though âmainlineâ in much of its content, Ancient Word
Radio has a heart for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and is very much
âevangelicalâ in nature.``

Altho I`ve never listened to a full `YWS` hour, I`ve yet to hear him
refer on the air to himself as a Right Reverend or as a Bishop. Too
off-putting for his neighborly demeanor?

I click on the Listen Live button at 2241 UT September 8 and instead I
hear, as labeled, First Movement, Allegro of Bach`s Brandenburg
Concerto No. 3! In full stereo; great! We`ll never hear that on YWS
nor probably anywhen on WRMI. Guess what: the BB Concerti are among
the most ``secular`` of Bach`s oeuvre.
http://www.classicalnotes.net/classics2/brandenburg.html
But by 2246 it`s over for a BBB announcement, and then somehymn.

The question is, what he means by ``finishing up secular work`` ---
quitting YWS; or even closing the WRMI Oldies channel which seems to
have been his idea from the outset? and its only DJ, who never IDs the
tunes. Altho extensive, it`s often interrupted for other programming.

9395, Sept 8 at 2018, WRMI with VOA News relay, which means this hour
is designated Oldies, as per sked Mon-Sat at 20-21, and a few minutes
earlier there was a Paul Simon tune (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.1, UT Sat Sept 8 from 0000, WBCQ switches from gh/WOR
vs. BS/TOM mixture to one audio, Allan Weiner Worldwide. Over to John
H Carver, Jr, to tell us about it:

``Listening on 7490 again. Allan, Angela and Tom in the studio this
evening. Celebrating the twenty year anniversary of WBCQ which
actually occurs tomorrow. Lots of nostalgia about events leading up to
the opening of the station. Allan stated that they built the entire
station for about fifty thousand dollars.

First program on the air was AWWW and shortly after that LeShow
appeared and then Bill Cooper's Hour of the Time. Started with one
transmitter and one antenna and Allan put up the tower for the antenna
himself.

First phone call at 0020 with congratulations. As a result of the
phone call it came out that Dead Frog Radio will be returning to the
radio in the near future. Next phone call at 0030 from a caller with
memories of traveling to the station and sitting in with TimTron for
one of his shows. Phone call at 0037 with congratulations to Allan and
support for John Lightning who started on WBCQ two days after the
first AWWW.

Some talk about the superstation and the future of shortwave. Reading
of emails began at 0055 followed by a longer prayer this evening and
show was off the air at 0101. The promised clips from the first AWWW
did not make an appearance. John, mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 9700, Sept 9 at 0024, praise music harmonies in unknown
Asian language, Chinese? 0027 switch to rustic music tonal language
announcement and off 0028*. Something new; what`s this? Nothing listed
anywhere near this time in latest HFCC or EiBi. But Aoki/NDXC of Sept
5 shows:
9700 0000-0027 PHL R. VERITAS ASIA Kac Palauig-Zam 1-7

We all know that RVA closed down on June 30, don`t we?? Not SE Asia,
but Europe is inbooming now on 31m as exemplified by 9420 Greece. I
conclude this is very likely another of RVA`s languages which has
switched without notice to SMG VATICAN site, amazingly adept at
reaching North America when supposedly broadcasting eastward toward
Asia. This is in the Kachin language.

Sound familiar? Yes, as in DXLD 18-33, on Aug 10 & 11 we came to the
same conclusion about a broadcast heard on 9645, which had been the B
-17 frequency for Kachin from RVA at 0000. How is 9645 listed now? Not
in Aoki. Not in EiBi. HFCC still has it as RVA PUG thru 28 October

Logs
** CHINA. 7810, Sept 7 at 1251, JBA carrier, maybe trace of Chinese?
As suspected, a CNR1 jammer against a 24-hour Sound of Hope frequency,
7810.04 per Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13605, Sept 5 at 2214, low level WON jamming despite Marti
having finished at 2000 --- and also variety pitches of beeps, one at
a time every few seconds; really carriers at slightly different
offsets from center frequency, audiblized with BFO.

Then Sept 5 at 2217, same thing is happening on 11860. I have caught
this strange behavior some previous times on Cuban jammer frequencies.

11860, Sept 6 at 2040, only Radio Marti and jamming to be heard, no
RHC, 3 weeks after the collision started. RHC was normally starting
own programming at 1930, so merely an outage, or have they moved?
Search of 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17 MHz bands does not find any
replacement.

12000 was not on the air during that search, but it is on at 2052, in
Portuguese, S9 with squeal, rough modulation, the usual situation
after 2100 in Spanish. Previous 11860 schedule for Europe, per
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2018/04/radio-habana-cubaradio-rebelderadio.html
showed 2000-2030 Portuguese, 2030-2100 Arabic! So was 12000 merely
turned on early with wrong language, or becoming the earlier
replacement for 11860 with languages jumbled? Further chex needed.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Well2, what do you know? RHC has *finally* updated its web frequency
schedule for current Abril-Octubre 2018 season, instead of 2016!
http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/frecuencias
But this embedded PDF page 1 of 2 is only for Spanish. Clicking on
Next Page arrow for presumed other languages, goes nowhere.

How about starting with the Portuguese page, then under Interessantes
the drop-down lead to Frequencias? Here too, page 2 below page 1 never
loads. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, Sept 5 at 2216, this RHC Spanish frequency with
supported modulation == suppressed/distorted. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 9490, Sept 5 at 2210, poor S3-S5 with Chinese ID
including ``guangbo diantai``. O, it`s just MWV, unlike the previous
hour in Chinese on 11610, which is usually well heard here at 325
degrees for Europe, while 9490 is aimed 55 degrees for China (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, Sept 7 at 1249, RNZI is S7-S9, but poor and not
-solid, presumably back on the NNW antenna only since 1100. At 1257,
QSY announcement to 5980 and off; 5980 comes on a few seconds before
*1259, now much better S9+10/20 with bellbird chirps. Still audible at
1346 faded to fair S9/S9+10. Checking today since I got this about
yesterday Sept 6:

``Hi Glenn, I made a mental note this morning of RNZ Pacific remaining
on the overnight frequency 7425 after the frequency shift cart fired.
I heard the announcement saying to retune to 5.9__ ??? and the Bell
Bird sang a complete cycle of refrains only to go back into time pips
and news, Dateline Pacific on 7425. It was well past 9:00 am CDT [1400
UT] when I tuned out due to fading and time constraints. Today's
(Sept. 6th) glitch was lucky for us in North America. As the days get
shorter perhaps the other lower frequency might be useful in a few
more weeks until the winter frequencies kick in. All this with a
Realistic DX-160. Best Regards, David Tymoshchuk, Winnipeg, Manitoba``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNIDENTIFIED 9760

** NIGERIA. 9689.92, Sept 6 at 2048, African language at S3-S6, as VON
has reactivated here, first reported Sept 2 by Mark Coady, Ontario,
and since then by several others, some putting it on 9689.91. Watch
out for France in Hausa at 2000-2030 on 9690.0. 9689.91 has also been
carrying VON English until 1930, then Fulfulde, then from 2000 its own
Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, Sept 7 at 1444 and still 1748 UT check, Enid`s
only local TV station, 3ABN`s K17JN-D, is on the air with very strong
signal, but all six sub channels are black and silent. Again.

With big storms between here and OKC, several signals from there are
degraded to the point of invisibility around 1445 UT: RF 50, 46, 33,
29; nothing on 23; while others like 39, 27 are nominal; even the low
-power on 42 is showing some signal. OKC metro has suffered several
days of flooding now (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 15450, Sept 7 at 1310, VOT English best heard in months on
frequent morning chex, S7 to S9+10; maybe a hint of equinoxial
conditions, tho little else on 19m now: much weaker than 15230 Cuba,
much stronger than 15380 Saudi. In `Letterbox` reading reception
reports, several from India; also Japan, Sharjah, France, Allan Wyllie
in Newfoundland, Canada; maybe one USA. Everyone wants a QSL card, and
everyone is promised one. 1317 outro, back in two weeks (tho has been
reported every week, repeat?), and ``Good-bye!!``, into program
intro=outro theme, a bit more music. 1322 headlines, 1323 IS, 1324
Turkish or Turkic language IDs interspersed, off at 1326*. Was on
15450.00, not offset as so many TRT frequencies have been.

[non] 15450 at 1434, JBA carrier. After 1400 that would be R Liberty
in Tajik via Lampertheim, Germany per HFCC, missing from Aoki/NDXC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 8137-USB, Sept 7 at 1304, WCY Lakeland FL, advising a client
about weather off the Caribbean coast of Colombia, also on weaker //
12350-USB, both VP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Sept 7 at 1437, K6FRC beacon is VP but 100%
copiable, with CODAR QRM; even so it`s better than fellow Californian
17775 KVOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1946 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday September 5 from 2100.5 on WRMI 9955, very poor, but at
least on the air in time. 9955 open carrier came on at 2058:20 without
IS & ID loop, 2100.0 canned ID.

But VP simulcast on 7490+v WBCQ from 2100.0 is instead last week`s
1945, despite 1946 having been available and notified 17 hours ago.
WBCQ might have caught up with 1946 at 2330 Wed Sept 5 or Thu Sep 6,
but no, BS played on. Next:

** U S A. 7780, Wed Sept 5 at 2055 check, this WRMI-1 is again in
Brother HyStairical, JBA but // 9395, instead of variety of
programming scheduled at 20-21 on 7780. In fact, System D sked now
shows both 7780 & 5950 with a bihour of diverse programming at 20-22
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9755-9760-9765, Sept 6 at 0542, S9+20 of DRM noise, in
fact the SSOB! But it cuts off at 0545* leaving a JBA AM carrier.
What`s this? HFCC has nothing in any mode at this hour (except JIC
Japan wooden).

Would you believe that both Romania and NZ are HFCC registered in DRM
on 9760 elsewhen and overlapping? RRI at 1700-1800, and RNZ at 1745-
2000.

Propagation-wise, 31m is almost dead, but 10000 WWVH is audible; I
suspect NZ with a test, as AM on 11725 is still VG and the OSOB at
S9+10. RNZI had been limping along with one transmitter for several
weeks, as its newer DRM-capable one was awaiting replacement part, so
there was no DRM at all from it. The current RNZI websked does show
DRM on 9760 but only at 1951-2050 Sunday-Friday.
