Logs
** CHINA. 13160, June 15 at 1251, Chinese is JBA and // 11825, i.e.
CNR1 jammers. Also 14700 JBA at 1253, and 14980 JBA carrier, all of
which are against Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, June 15 at 0546, RHC English service revived here
unlike Spanish last night, since music is now // 49m frequencies: 6000
& 6060 remain OFF; 6165 is JBM, leaving only 6100 with good signal and
modulation. Its X 2, 12200 is a JBA carrier now. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, June 15 at 1257, RHC is S9+10 but suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025V, June 16 at 0558, R. Rebelde carrier is wobbling
audibly with BFO; either that or CCI from another signal slightly
offset, but I can`t imagine R. Quillabamba could do that or even be on
air at this hour. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, June 15 at 0545, no signal from TGAV, Radio
Verdad, normally on air until about 0615*. That`s because the
transmitter ``collapsed`` per this from Dr. Madrid:

CC of a message to Ralph Wayne Borthwick, VA7GF, the engineer who has
repaired Radio Truth transmitter in the past:

``Last night by 8:30 pm (Guatemala time) [0230 UT June 14], Radio
Truth's Short Wave transmitter collapsed. It was not raining, neither
any other abnormal situation. I made the diagnose this morning, and am
attaching the results. The situation is not on my capacity, and we
need you to make the repairs. I still have to find a way to finance
your travel and repairs. I hope you are able to find a way to
Guatemala. Please unload the attachments with all details and
pictures. May God be with you. Yours in Christ.
Édgar Amílcar Madrid, Radio Truth, Chiquimula, Guatemala, C. A.``

On June 15, Dr Madrid replied to an inquiry from Manuel Mendez,
Spain:

``Yes, Radio Truth is off air from last night. Our transmitter was
burned out, and it is not on capacity to fix it. I have to wait until
Eng. Ralph Borthwick comes from Canada to fix it. I am trying to put
on the air a small anateur radio on on the meanwhile. I plan to
attempt that this afternoon. May God be with you, and keep tune.``

4055 again absent June 16 at 0557 check. Manuel forwards a further
reply on June 16:

``We may be off air for several weeks. I attempted to put on the air a
small transceiver today, but it didn´t work. We have to wait until
Ralph Borthwick is able to come to Guatemala.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550.563, June 15 at 2053, JBA carrier, probably R.
Kuwait`s Arabic to us, a widely variable/jumpable transmitter.
However, I can`t be 100% sure since computers in the house also
transmit such things all over the SW bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1986 monitoring: confirmed by Ivo
Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, June 15
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/06/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_15.html
0630-0659 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat, weak signal``

Noel R. Green in NW England replies on the WOR io group: ``Unlike
Ivo's reception, 6190 was better than usual strength this morning at
tune in towards the end of Glenn's WOR. The signal was reaching a S-9
level on my meter at times, but even so, it was a difficult to copy
signal due to the ever present local noise``

Not confirmed the next HLR broadcast, Sat June 16 at 1430 on
9485-CUSB; absolutely no trace audible via UTwente SDR, just huge
splash from 9490 Romania.

15770, June 15 at 2056, surprised to hear me in a routine bandscan.
Yes, now showing on the WRMI skedgrid is an additional WORLD OF RADIO
airing Saturdays at 2030 on 15770. First time on this frequency, I
think, aimed NE toward Europe, mostly with SMTV daytime, but
additional stuff tacked on before and after. Despite unfavorable
azimuth for us to the NW, has been coming in better with sporadic E
boosts. Not // 9395, the only other audible WRMI frequency; 7780 JBA
carrier.

WORLD OF RADIO 1986 further monitoring: immediately repeated Saturday
June 15 at 2100 on WRMI 9955 after IS & ID loop, but upcut JIP in
theme music, missing: ``This is Glenn Hauser, with WORLD OF RADIO
1986``. Fair-good but can also detect slight pulse jamming already.

Also confirmed, UT Sunday June 16 at 0140, the 0130 on WRMI 5850, very
good.

Due to severe storm noise could not confirm at 0330 UT Sunday June 16
on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, but probably my voice amid WOR.

cycle, so freshest new airings are on weekends]

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

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, UT Sunday June 16 at 0000, WRMI with new program
``Radio for Peace International``, opening with faux timepips, IDs in
French, English at least, then into woman lexuring only in French.
Checked here tnx to tip from Alan Gale, England earlier June 15 to the
WOR io group:

Hi All, I just saw this on the WRMI Facebook page: Alan.

``New program in wrmi from Friday, June 14th

RADIO FOR PEACE INTERNATIONAL is being reactivated, although the new
RFPI is not related to the old one in Costa Rica. We will emit in
Short Wave on WRMI on frequencies of 15770 kHz on Friday at 2000-2100
UT for the Maghreb, 9395 kHz on Saturday at 2000-2100 hours Eastern
Time in North America (0000-0100 UT Sunday), and on 6070 kHz in Europe
and on our website http://www.rfpi.eu

You'll be able to listen to our podcast shows on i-tunes, youtube
podcasting platforms and on our facebook page.

The broadcasts will be structured around 45-50 minute conferences on
subjects that are related to peace, humanism, human rights,
sustainable development ...

The goal is not to impose a reality but to provide food for thought so
that everyone can walk in respect, listening, sharing in order to
build peace together``

Well, if it is unrelated to RFPI CR, this is not a ``reactivation``.
We were expecting this to start the week before, Friday June 7 at 2000
on 15770 when the air was dead instead.

Contrary to the above, Ivo Ivanov says these RFPI are monthly:
``2000-2100 15770 YFR 100 kW / 044 deg to WeEu French 2nd Fri
1900-2000 on 6070 ROB 010 kW / non-dir to CeEu French 2nd Sat
0000-0100 on 9395 YFR 100 kW / 355 deg to ENAm French 2nd Sun``

But, but, altho June 14 was the second Friday, June 15 and 16,
obviously? are the *third* Saturday and Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, June 16 at 1654, WBCQ-6 is on again, new
transmitter testing, with oldtime hymn, soon into Brother Scare
roarer; S9+10 with fading; much stronger than JBA 9265 WINB, 9395
WRMI, but even WBCQ cannot overcome the noise level. Recheck at 1754,
off again, neither 9330v transmitter detectable.

Manfred Korn in Stuttgart was also hearing AAAWWW June 16 between 04
and 05 on 9330, which must have been another #6 test (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12065-12120 approx., June 16 at 1348, WEWN Spanish with huge
loud spurblob audible over this range, best readable in FM mode (much
like the old RHC 13/15 MHz spurs which thankfully have not been heard
in months). Center is very approx. 12082-12083. There is also a very
weak S7-S9 AM signal on source 12050. Can`t even detect VOA Korean on
12080 until 1421 when a carrier is there under this mess.
Recheck at 1652: still readable only in Fm mode altho distorted, now
seems centered closer to 12078; 1755 recheck, same but weaker.

I notified Glen Tapley about this for the third time. This is very
like a previous report to the WOR io group by Jim Barrett:

``USA WEWN 12082 v 12085 11 Jun 2019 1400 UTC to 20:50 UTC --- Since
the 1400 scheduled sign-on of WEWN Spanish service on 12050, the
transmission has actually been centered on (approximately) 12082. The
audio is very distorted, and demodulates best in NBFM mode on my
KiwiSDR. No question that it is WEWN. In listening I have heard many
mentions of “Radio Católica Mundial”, and a dialog about Marian
devotions.

In the meantime, 12050 is completely in the clear, and I believe I am
hearing Radio Ndarason International from Tchad. Pop music and dialogs
in what sounds very much like an African language. Being received well
at 2058, though scheduled 2100 sign-off is fast approaching. Jim
Barrett, Elmira, NY``.

Meanwhile Jim has filed another report today at 1746 matching my obs,
which I forward to Tapley as his fourth notice:

``WEWN 12050, still major problems --- Sunday June 16 - WEWN is still
suffering major problems with distorted modulation on their 12050 kHz
Spanish service beginning at 1400 UT and continuing to the present
time (1745).

There is a weak carrier on 12050, with a very small amount of AM
modulation, but the bulk of the RF energy is concentrated in a broad,
highly distorted sideband centered (at this time) at about 12078,
though it drifts up and down somewhat. Even using very broad filters
on my RSP1A SDR, I can’t recover any useable audio in any mode - AM,
USB/LSB or FM.

I noted the transmitter was off air all day Wednesday and Thursday
June 12 and 13, and thought that station engineers might be working on
whatever technical problem might be causing this, but when it returned
to the air Friday, the same problem noted earlier in the week was
still present.

It’s possible that fixing the problem might require parts not
currently available, but I’m surprised that they continue running this
broadcast despite the obvious malfunction. They are certainly not in
compliance with FCC requirements for frequency stability or
modulation/spectral purity. This is not RHC. Jim Barrett - Elmira, NY
USA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 88.7 WBFM, June 15 circa 1730 UT on caradio, KLVV Ponca
City OK has CCI from something, very unusual. Dxmaps.com do not show
sporadic E MUF now anywhere near 88 MHz. It`s not KWTU Tulsa, only 5
kW, since the QRM is not classical music. In Kansas there are four
88.7s, all of them very low power and not near. That leaves the most
likely possibility per WTFDA FM Database:

Logs
** ANTARCTICA [non]. The annual BBCWS winter solstice special for the
British Antarctic Survey is coming up next Friday June 21, and we have
been expecting a dry-run frequency test sometime during the preceding
week. Ivo Ivanov got the details to the WOR iog several hours ahead,
to pick the best three out of four:

June 14 at 2130-2145, so I try all four frequencies here at 2135:
7360-Ascension, JBA carrier; 9455-Woofferton, JBA S4-S6 not WRMI;
5990-UAE, JBA carrier; 5875 Woofferton, JJBBA carrier. About as
expected here way off the target.

Then at 2139 I check the same via UTwente SDR, and hear an interview
about football, maybe regular BBCWS programming at the moment: 7360
good but with pervasive Ascension hum --- Kai Ludwig wonders if that
would disqualify it? Not at all, one or two ASC transmitters remain in
full service this way, hums to Africa often audible. 9455 good with no
hum; 5875 very good; 5990 UAE however is VP, JBA back in Europe (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11500, 11460, 11440, 11120, June 14 at 1253, and 12800 at
1259, all CNR1 jammers JBA as on the Aoki/NDXC jammed Sound of Hope
roster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, June 14 at 0527, RHC in Spanish instead of English as
scheduled this hour --- maybe deliberately since there is no 49mb
Spanish all evening with 6060 transmitter gone for weeks. A breakdown,
or inexplicable scheduling change? As for what`s left of English, at
0522: 6165 S9+10 and JBM, 6100 best, 6000 undermodulated. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.240, June 14 at 1301, RHC self-knocked way
off-frequency again today after quite a normal spell on 13740.00,
while // 13700 remains .00. Something or other is always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 9860, June 14 at 0505, R. Japan ID amid news in
English, good S9+10 to S8, VATICAN relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7485, June 14 at 0429, anti-Christ pirate, Station
YHWH slid up to here probably to avoid ute QRM on 7480; S9+10 vs
considerable fading and noise. Still screeding past 0502, later than
usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1986 monitoring: confirmed first US
SWBC, Friday June 14 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, good S9+10/S9 and no
jamming. Also confirmed at 0150 the 0130 UT Saturday June 15 on WRMI

** U S A. 9330+, June 14 at 0428, Brother Scare on WBCQ, switched back
to the old off-frequency transmitter, after having been on the new
exact one when last checked at 0136, which was second night of testing
it, but briefer and boringer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.1, UT Sat June 15 at 0002, WBCQ with ``William Tell
Overture`` theme to `Allan and Angela Weiner WorldWide``, S9+10/20 but
plenty of storm noise; also on 9330.1 ``classic`` transmitter, S9-S7,
somewhat less noise but also less signal, so S/N is slightly better on
the lower. AW says on all four frequencies tonight, but nothing
audible vs noise level on 5130+ or 3265-.

Quickly interrupted by a caller somewhere who I think was saying not
heard on 5130. Allan says the new Continental transmitter issue has
been fixed. Thalès in France air-shipped a replacement tube ring,
which was the part that broke and leaked water. Now it has interlock
issues --- won`t operate if there is any HV danger, apparently false
positives? At this point, 0009 it`s time for me to leave for tonight`s
Enid Chautauqua performance by ``Che Guevara`` --- the actor needs
some more Spanish pronunciation instruxion.

Over to John Carver for his full report on tonight`s AAAWWW:

``Tonight's show started a few seconds early on 7490 after some fill
music. Comments over the theme said that they were broadcasting on all
frequencies this evening and there were issues with the new
transmitter. Allan and Angela in the studio. A phone call immediately
from Freddie with questions about the transmitter. Allan said that the
transmitter has been repaired after the water leak but antenna work
was ongoing.

He said that now there was a problem with the interlock mechanism on
the transmitter. Says he would like to have a transmitter that could
operate more than twelve hours before shutting down. Says it's all
damn digital crap. Way too many computers involved. He stated that for
three million dollars the damn thing should work.

He's still shooting for a start date of July 1 but says that if
antenna work isn't finished they will only be broadcasting at night so
the work on the antenna can continue during the day.

Phone call at 0029 from Canada with questions about receivers and
antennas in general. Phone call at 0039 from Ramsey commenting on the
signal strength during this past week's tests. Phone call at 0049 from
Bill Smith in prison. Says he's getting out of prison this next
Wednesday. Reading of emails at 0054 along with another phone call
from Freddie. Allan asks him to hold on so he can read the emails.
Closing prayer at 0100.

Allan mentions that 3265 will only be running Friday, Saturday and
Sundays because of operating expense. Program was off the air at 0104.
7490 was off the air at 0111 after some more music. John Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
