Logs
** ANGUILLA. 11775, March 18 at 1405, PMS is back on, and during this hour only // 7490 WWCR, q.v., a new frequency for her, filling a banned Brother Scare slot (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780, Sat March 17 at 2234, RNA is off during a time which it had been active, at least on weekdays for `A Voz do Brasil` hour, but previous weekends was also on with silly ballgames or whatever. Evidently same transmitter was attempting 6180, as Dave Valko was hearing it there instead plus spur around 6145 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11855.78, March 17 at 2231 R. Aparecida in Brazuguese, measured here. As Wolfgang BÃschel pointed out, my previous measurement was 1 kHz off as ``below`` 11855: I was paying too much attention to the Hz, too little to the kHz! At 1925-2005 March 17 he had it varying 11855.784 to .788..

So replace previous report with this one as corrected:

11855.792v, March 17 at 0250, R. Aparecida, S6-S9 Portuguese talk. I haven`t measured this one in some time, never right on 11855.000 but had recently been closer, I think (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. 392 kHz, March 18 at 0617, ND beacon ML and dash. Dxinfocenter.com shows it`s at Malbaie - Charlevoix, Quebec. But there is *another* ML on same frequency in Monroe LA! The dash distinguishes them, a Canadian thing. Neither QC place is in my Rand McNally atlas index. But the coÃrdinates lead to Malbaie on the north bank of the St. Lawrence, just SW of RiviÃre-du-Loup, a goodly distance from here, 2593 km = 1611 statute miles, 500 watts per classaxe.com. At same time on same frequency I am hearing another weaker NDB at a slightly different pitch, FMZ, which is much closer in Fairmont-Beklof, Nebraska (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9720, March 17 at 2244, RHC in English, oh2, another anomaly or change? No, just a passage merely awaiting traduxion into Kriyol; 5040 now is in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGST)

** CUBA. 15730, March 17 at 2253, weak VP music at S2, which is a VOA frequency earlier, but now per EiBi it`s RHC at 2200-2430 to South America (but nothing shown in the 2230-2300 period). Not in HFCC of course, but not in Aoki/NDXC either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, March 18 at 1336, RHC again missing the FMy spurblobs all over the 19m band, as `En Contacto` is underway, Arnie plugging the 60m frequencies, especially 4765, Radio Progreso. Both he and Marta assert that the 4765 schedule is 0130-0500! Oblivious of the EDT shift to one UT hour earlier, and this is a new produxion as they refer to the Equinox. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, March 18 at 0606, R. Verdad open carrier is still on after publicized earlier 0500 sign-off this date; for their magical Worldwide service to be evaluated? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935, poor Sunday March 18 at 1329, Shiokaze typical piano music bed and soft talk; with lite tone/pulse jamming on both sides, which I suppose means a modulated carrier centered on same frequency. JSR Sunday scheduled to transition from Korean to Japanese at 1330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 5917.605 or 5917.606, March 18 at 1325, S2-S4 music from the ever-diminishing frequency of Voice of Freedom. This correlates with Wolfgang BÃschel`s latest report:

``Voice of Freedom program on 5920v seemingly stopped wandering today. 5917.605_1/2 kHz measured on remote SDR unit at Seoul, S Korea, on March 18 at 08 and 13 UT, S=9+10dB signal strength. Light music noted. Nothing on the jamming front heard/visible on that channel, totally free at this hour`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, March 17 at 2221, S7-S8 vs S9 storm noise crashes, historical docu about Danzig, WWII, maybe narrated by Cronkite? Recheck at 2302, FDR`s famous Dec 7, 1941 ``infamy`` speech to the Senate. Yes, it`s ``WFDR`` pirate, per this thread:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,41116.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, March 17 at 2348, big band music at S9+10, VG, Billie Holiday? no doubt Wolverine Radio, and IDs at 2353, March 18 at 0016 with soul songs, peaking at S9+20 (much better than 6150 Farty KBC, 125 kW via Germany, so poor as to be unlistenable).

Wolverine has got to be at least 10 kW, and is really an international broadcaster: ``6935 kHz Wolverine Radio - United States of America received in Brazil. Music in 2355 UTC Day 17 March 2018, SINPO 24222

RX: Yaesu FRG 8800 Antenna: Beverage simples DXer: Daniel Wyllyans - SÃtio Estrela do Araguaia - Nova Xavantina - Mato Grosso - Brazil
Hard-Core-DX mailing list`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 7590.00, March 17 at 2224, JBA carrier, something clandestine? No, per Aoki/NDXC at 2200-2230 it`s VOA Cambodian via Tinang since December 15. Only other 7590 entry is N Korea Reform Radio, 1430-1530 via Tashkent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND [and non]. 7120, March 18 at 1333, JBA carrier from R. Hargeisa, overcome by much stronger CQs DE KC9UNL on about 7118.5. KC9UNL is Gidding, Curtis E, in Savoy, IL 61874 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TINIAN. 9325, March 17 at 2229, S4-S6 open carrier, 2230 English opening Radio Free Asia, in ??? HFCC shows IBB in Khmer at 2230-2330, 250 kW, 272 degrees from Tinian since January 20, but still not in Aoki. EiBi has it: adds to another Khmer hour at 1230 on same (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15239.943 or 15239.944, Saturday March 17 at 1917, JBA carrier, presumably R. Munansi via WWRB on characteristic off-frequency-minus. Earlier check at 1650 could not hear it, nor via UTwente SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12695.5-CW, March 17 at 2238, ``VVV VVV VVV CQ DE KFS KFS KFS QSX ---``. Tnx to tip via Paul Dobosz, MARE, the Maritime Radio Historical Society publicized March 16 that KPH and KFS would be back on air Saturdays from today: ``The MRHS has completed repairs to their antenna farm and will be back on the air each weekend for your Dit-Dah listening pleasure.``

12808.5-CW, March 17 at 2235, tried KPH first, where faster CW was running and never caught an ID, but sending lots of numbers. Also something on 17016.8, another of its frequencies, but nothing on 8642. I also noticed that the .5 of 12695 was slightly lower than the .5 of 12808. Own website http://www.radiomarine.org/ says:

``KPH, KFS and K6KPH Return To The Air on Saturday 17 March (MRHS) - The crack MRHS Transmitter Department announced today that after a long absence from the air stations KPH, KFS and K6KPH will return, at least partially, on Saturday 17 March. On-air operations were suspended some months ago due to antenna maintenance issues. Some of those issues have now been resolved with the result that a partial return to operation is now possible. Listen for KPH, KFS and K6KPH on these Morse frequencies:

KPH 8642.0
KPH 12808.5
KPH 17016.8
KFS 12695.5
K6KPH 14050

We expect continued operation on these frequencies each Saturday with more to be added as additional antenna problems are resolved.`` Much more at the website. Location is Point Reyes National Seashore, California (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1921 monitoring: Altho I could not hear me at all via UTwente, Alan Gale, at his greater more favorable skip distance in England reports on the Sat March 17 HLR broadcast: ``Hi Glenn, A fair signal on 6190 today, the 1530 GMT broadcast was audible right the way through, with the Chinese station just audible in the background. World of Radio was the definite winner of today's frequency battle. 73 for now, Alan.``

WOR 1921 confirmed Saturday March 17 at 2130 on WBCQ 9330.264v-CUSB, S7-S8, ex-2230 during standard time on Saturdays only; Brother Scare interrupted for ID and this. As usual the frequency is slightly wavering. Also confirmed Sat Mar 17 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, but VP. Also confirmed UT Sun Mar 18 at 0200 on WRMI 7780, also VP. Also confirmed UT Sun Mar 18 starting at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, Good S9+20! Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE [no longer // 9455]
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1922?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1922?]

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

** U S A. 9395, March 17 at 2230, WRMI Oldies just starting VOA News, as if it were scheduled on the half-hour, but surely a random hit.

9395 // 9455, Sat Mar 17 at 2301, WRMI with `Your Weekend Show`. And 9395, UT Sun Mar 18 at 0201, AWR Wavescan, both with G-VG signals while WOR is JBA on 7780; o well.

7780 // 9395, Sun Mar 18 at 1401, another secret airing of `Your Weekend Show` as Bob is pleased with 9395 and 9455 reception reports (but 9395 now has RTTY QRM). 7780 on Sundays only this hour is supposed to air `Worship in Your Home`. Meanwhile, 9455 also continues secret airings of Radio Eslovaquia Internacional.

ALL these times for YWS, WS and REI cannot be found on any of the three versions of WRMI schedules! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Sunday March 18 at 1405, WWCR is now filling the vacated Brother Scare Sunday-only hour with: PMS! A new frequency for her, // almost synch with 11775 ANGUILLA which is back on at the moment (13845 WWCR-3 is too weak to tell). WWCR program guide dated March 1 still has not been updated to remove The Overcomer Ministry, at 9-10 am CST Sundays on WWCR-2, mis-converted to 15-16 UT, but 9-10 AM CDT Sunday is now equivalent to 14-15 UT! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9025, Sunday March 18 at 1422, no signal here. Dave Valko tipped at 1303 that something strange was being heard Friday and Sunday morning, a loop mentioning Michigan State University:

``Glenn, last Friday and from 1230 this morning, I've been hearing an UNID station on 9025. It's a 1:13 minute long loop and appears to be a promo for lectures by Michigan State University. The majority of the loop is an excerpt of one of the lectures. The high pitch (a la Ross Perot) of the man`s voice made it difficult to copy. A normal-voiced man ends the loop seemingly identifying that it's one in a series of lectures by Michigan State University. Here is what I could copy of the loop from Friday. Just listening this morning, I got a few things wrong. I'll update it later.

"(Man with whiny high-pitched voice:) This ?? of the government pleases everybody. ?? everyone. ?? the design. In God everyone who works for ?? the government âof the government of this country stupendous God ?? 500 million dollars ?? 400 million dollars is ruled by the national government. And ?? our local government. But the ?? is difficult to comprehend. It represents all ?? of allâ.5 dollars a day, roughly 300 days of the year. If the governors could add 100 million dollars to be spent, it would represent more ??, small ?? of these actions. These are some of the âpublic expense. I urge people of America to be angry towards less to the governors and more to ?? (Man with normal voice:) This is one of 50 thousand âMichigan State University".

Friday, it went off at 1834:04. So you should have plenty of time to check it out, if it stays on as long as Friday. Reception around North America seems to indicate it's in the western Great Lakes region. At least it was strongest and most readable in the upper mid-west. It wasn't on yesterday. If you have any idea what this is, please let me know. Thanks. 73 Dave``

I told Dave I was not hearing it at 1422 and he replied at 1439: ``Yes, I have it now with audio, obviously on a peak. Very deep fades. Was best on a web receiver in Indiana earlier. The speech sounds like Hoover. This is just totally baffling. Brett Saylor came up with the best possible explanation so far.... "from an exhibit (like Hoover's birthplace, which is a National Park Service historic site in Iowa), sort of like that Old Time Radio station on 6770".``

Meanwhile I found lots more about it at this thread:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,41132.0.html

Dave replied at 1458: ``Thanks to Brett Saylor's great sleuthing, the loop recording airing on 9025 is taken from the Vincent Voice Library at Michigan State University. This recording exactly:
http://archive.lib.msu.edu/VVL/vincent/presidents/mp3/coolidge.mp3
Now, is the transmission coming directly from the MSU campus?? At least we know what the loop is`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11854.792v, March 17 at 0250, R. Aparecida, S6-S9 Portuguese talk. I haven`t measured this one in some time, never right on 11855.000 but had recently been closer, I think (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, March 17 at 1417, again no spurs all over the 19mb detected from RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. See UNIDENTIFIED 2070

** U S A. 15580, Friday March 16 at 2105, after news not via WRMI, VOA with `Afropop Worldwide` as always hostessed by Hyper Heather --- great music, tho, and great signal thanks to Greenville on this frequency only during this hour. May be benefiting from some sporadic E boost now. Enjoy it while we can, as from A-18 this frequency will be only via Botswana in our afternoons. Of course, in the skip zone from GB, that could be an improvement in eastern North America. Friday 2105-2200 is a secret airing of APWW, at least secret to Heather who never mentions it when giving the program times at endofshow. HFCC A-18 schedule shows the only possible English from GB will be 17530 at 1700-1830, which is mainly in Shona/Ndebele for `Studio 7` to Zimbabwe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1921 monitoring: confirmed Friday March 16 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.1v-CUSB, fair.

Not confirmed, Sat March 17, 1531-1600 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 6190-CUSB via UTwente SDR: not even a trace of the WOR theme at 1531, nor anything in further chex, just the two ChiComs rather weakly mixing, including language lesson at 1554. Not until March 31 will this WOR airing change to 1431 UT, but will it also revert to 7265-CUSB? HFCC A-18 shows 6190 available 24 hours, 7265 between 05 and 17. Next:
Sat 1930v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND

** U S A. 9455 // 9955, March 17 at 0252, R. Eslovaquia Internacional via WRMI on both at equal levels, good S9+10. It is interesting to observe how widely variable are the signals on these two at different times, not always equal either.

Current skedgrid shows 9455 duplicates 9955 at these hours: 02-03, 11-14, 22-23. See the 9955 sked at http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMI9955 for what programs get to be on both: At 02-03 it`s hardly anything but Praga and Bratislava in Spanish. 13-14 & 22-23 include some media shows (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+v: Tnx to WBCQ being beholden to DST clox, it now makes `Behaviour Night` compete with VOA`s `Afropop Worldwide` [q.v.] during this same real hour, Friday 2100-2200 on 15580 Greenville. I try 7490 too, but reception is already too noisy, so far into the dayside. At this distance, we may not expect good reception again until November when it revert to 2200-2300 UT, and also after sunset.

It`s too bad that excellent shows like this will not be put on the 500 kW transmitter. Maybe at least profits from that enterprise will allow incremental improvements to the other outlets? Or there may not be any profits, if it`s simply in service of whatever religious broadcaster is funding it. And since that will obviously come out when it`s all done, why keep it secret now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat March 17 from 0000, WBCQ webcast starts with almost dead air, but some talking I can`t make out, before `Allan Weiner Worldwide` ``William Tell Overture`` theme starts. This usually happens, I suppose a delay imposed by switching/cuing to Studio 9 feed from Deland of Fla. Allan starts by railing against midgets, huh?? Over to John Carver for the rest of the story:

``Listening on 5130 this evening. Theme music started about twenty seconds late. Over the theme music Allan's words for the week were such things as munchkins, midgets and dingbats. In studio 9 in FLA with Angela, Allan is outraged over a magazine article stating that midgets molested Judy Garland during the filming of the Wizard of Oz. Says it has made it impossible for him to ever enjoy watching the movie again. Blames it on the dingbats who want to besmirch everything in this country's past including the founding fathers, the civil war, TV and movie stars of today. Said they referred to the founding fathers as oversexed slave owners. He stated that the movie was a classic, an icon. Related the story about the first time he saw the movie on TV when he was young. He wonders when they're going to attack Gone With the Wind.

He announced that the station is out of money again and that donations are down. Says he has had to cancel the snow removal at the station as the guys running the plows keep raising their rates. Told Tom at the station to dig himself out as there will be no more snow plowing this year at the station. Commented that the snowfall is fifty-eight inches over last year's snow.

In a surprise statement, he referred to Angela as his beautiful mate instead of beautiful girlfriend.

Started reading of older emails at 0027. Read messages about the death of an AM station, news that Gates is ceasing production of AM transmitters and that iHeart Media has filed for bankruptcy.

After that, Allan announced that he's been granted a permit for an FM translator for his AM station along with descriptions of the AM and FM services he offers to the local area.

Reading of current emails began at 0055. Quick prayer at 0058. No phone calls this evening and program was off the air at 0100. John Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 690, March 17 at 0559 UT, dominant KGGF KS is still going, having abandoned its ~midnight signoff a few years ago; but fails to legal ID in the 10 second hole before 0600 UT, during which tnx to its dead air, I can clearly hear legal ID from the otherwise understation: ``KTSM, El Paso, is NewsRadio 690``. NRC AM Log says ``NewsTalk 690``; I suppose they could utter either informally. Of course, a few years ago, El Pasoans on 690 and 1380 exchanged stations with KHEY ending on the less desirable upper. KTSM is 10/10 kW U4; and the NRC Pattern Book as of 7/15/2013 showed 690 night pattern going strictly to the SSW! I am checking what`s on 690 after detecting a JBA carrier on 3 x 690 = 2070; see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 770, March 17 at 0605 UT, ``WABC Radio, New York, thanks for tuning in``, talk about Irish stuff for SP Day. Well, thanks for coming in! Not an easy catch out here 1300+ miles away from NJ, where we are at least as likely to hear night remnants of KKOB/KKOB. Has some IBOC noise from 780 WBBM, even here from its peak at 767. I switch between LSB and USB and get clearer reception on one or the other. I wonder if someother 770 is USB or LSB only? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, March 17 at 1650 UT check, it`s another SNAFU day for KLEY, Wellington KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search. March 17 from 0600, I first notice hets/carriers on 621, 711, 774, encouraging me to scan the whole band at 9-kHz offset intervals, starting at 0608:
549, 558, 567, 585, 603, 621, 639, 657, 666, 684 vs WSCR IBOC, 711, 747, 774* stronger, 783, 801, 855, 873, 882, 936(2), 1017, 1098, 1116, 1125, 1152 --- and I fall asleep, as later discovered (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2070, March 17 at 0556 UT, JBA carrier barely above noise level. Seems to be real as still there with preamps off. Could be 3 x something from 690. But off at 0557 UT. Could it be a station signing off around local midnight in the MDT zone? As with most frequencies, NRC AM Log shows everything on 690 either 24 hours or daytimer.

Mexicans are a different story. IRCA Log showed one match, XERG in Monterrey NL on a 1200-0600 UT schedule (and Mont`y is still on CST of UT-6 according to timeanddate.com, unlike ``northern NL`` --- but what does that mean? NL has only a few miles of border with USA/TX, unlike Tamaulipas and Coahuila whose border towns go along with USA DST calendar; NL includes a spur highway, just upriver from Nuevo Laredo).

IRCA Log is now at least 3 years old; we keep hoping for a new edition, but apparently delayed by trying to keep up with all the XEs which have closed down their MW. It had 8 XEs on 690, as did the final Cantà as of Feb 2015. Now, the WRTH 2018 lists *only 2*, XEN and XERG, but no attempt at schedule info in the by-frequency list; however, the NL04 station linked shows 12-07 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

recently been closer, I think.
