I know. someone who hasnt heard WSM.. seems impossible huh? lol Well I

8pm.

** ALBANIA [and non].  15770, Tue Dec 17 at 2043, R. Tirana via WRMI
in mailbag reading reports from listeners. Is there a program sked? No
direct entry for that on the Hitlist.

Hoping for some info on missing CRI via Cërrik, I have renewed
correspondence with Drita Çiço, formerly with Radio Tirana:

``Hello Drita, A long time since we contacted. I hope you are doing
well. And that the quake did not affect you.

We have been noticing the absence of most of the CRI relay broadcasts
via Cerrik. We are wondering if this is because of earthquake damage?
Do you have any definite information about that?

Continue to enjoy the Radio Tirana broadcasts via WRMI. Best holiday
wishes, Glenn``

She replies:

``Hi Glenn, Yes, it is a long time. I retired last year. At present, I
work at the library of a private university. University Metropolitan
Tirana. A lot of problems with earthquake here. Thanks God, we had no
problems at home. Thanks for asking.

As for CRI, I now phoned to the Chinese CRI representative in Tirana.
She told me that they have technical problems, did not want to give
details about earthquake. She said they don't know anything yet
(meaning top management), when CRI will come back on the air.

How are you and the others? Especially Noel and Wolfy? Keep in touch.
All the best from sunny warm Tirana, Drita

** CANADA. 406 kHz, Dec 17 at 0731, dash and YLJ, 40-watt NDB at
Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, which is NW of Prince Albert on the way to
Cold Lake, Alberta. dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm shows this as the only
beacon on 406.

401 kHz, Dec 17 at 0732 UT, dash and ND beacon CPO as I copied it
dozing off, but must have been YPO, 500 watts at Peawanuck, Ontario
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 17 at 0352, RHC English is S9+30 but just a trace
of JB modulation; // 6145 is merely undermodulated but audible.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5910, Dec 17 at 0354, CRI music in Cantonese hour relay is
just barely modulated, like 6000 RHC itself. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba. Both supposed to be from Quivicán site and could
leapfrog unto 5820 but not audible there now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13768 approx., Dec 17 at 1539, spurblob best audible in AM
mode, out of 13700 RHC; much stronger than its opposite circa 13632.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SWAZILAND. Re 4760 TWR, conflicting info about languages at
0330-0415, Peter W Hansen provides another version:
``Hi Glenn, TWR website has 0400-0415 as Ndau language,
0330-0400 M-F as Shona
0345-0400 Sat as Shona
0330-0345 Sat as Ndebele
and 0330-0400 as Shona And Ndebele with different programs`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 412 kHz, Dec 17 at 0730 UT, ND beacon CMY, which is 30 watts
at Sparta - Fort McCoy, Wisconsin. I was tuned to 410-USB (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2012 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday
December 17 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S7-S9. Next:

0900 UT Wednesday Unique Radio NSW 5045-USB
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Aussie Tim Gaynor informs us that Unique Radio is currently active
with WOR also scheduled Fridays at 0900 on 5045-USB; Mondays 0900 &
0930 on 5045-USB or 3210-USB --- presumably latest and previous
episode with a frequency change in between?

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9425, Dec 17 at 2120, woman with heavy accent in English
rambling on about Buddhism, impossible to follow her point; sure
sounds like The Supreme Master, on new frequency. Yes, 2130 into some
music, outro as ``Treasured Jewel``, and SMTV website, announcements.
Got to be WRMI, which had been scheduled on 5800 starting at 2100 for
SMTV but no signal there, despite 5950 audible.

9425 sounds like one of WRMI`s undermodulated transmitters; it`s
S9/+10 but much softer and weaker than 9395 & 9455, halfway between
them with other programming. Still not shown at
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
So far *no* WRMI entry in Jeff`s HFCC on 9425, just updated today.
Must have been a tempting choice since nothing is registered on it
anywhen --- but HFCC omits all Voice of Korear usage, conveniently
finishing 9425 at 2057. Nothing about this on WRMI FB either. Nor at
https://suprememastertv.com/en1/worldwide/
There is no link to this on the Hitlist, not under WRMI. Now, how late
will 9425 last rather than 5800, previously scheduled until 0100 with
SMTV, plus another hour of RAE AAM in Spanish? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 13630 & 13770, Dec 16 at 1440, FMish/AM spurblobs from RHC
13700-AM about 70 kHz displaced today; and a much weaker double at
13840; if any at 13560, buried under local constant RF ID or some
other ISM transmission. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Dec 16 at 1554, big dead air from this RHC, while
15140 & weaker 15230 modulate. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11930 & 11860, Mon Dec 16 at 1506, Radio Martí well
atop wall-of-noise jammers opening `Revoltillo` show with host
greeting listeners around the world including Alemania, Houston,
several towns in Cuba including Bejucal = RHC/spy/jammer SW site;
interspersed with SFX such as rooster, sheep; nice weather in Miami,
25 grados. By 1622 recheck, both are below the jamming (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Dec 16 at 1435 VP music from Echo of Hope back
here this week ex-4890; Ron Howard will have surveyed all the latest
jumparounds as of Mondays; yes, already:

``Last Monday (Dec 9): 3985 // 4890 // 6000 // 6255 // 6355 // 9105
This Monday (Dec 16): 3990 // 4885 // 6000(?) // 6250 // 6355 //
9100`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, Dec 16 at 1452, Kurdish music with
chanting, only one station, Denge Welat, no Turkish jamming. Had been
on 11540 for several days whenever checked. Nothing there either now.
A few seconds before 1500, another carrier comes on, extremely smooth
site transition, presumably from PRIDNESTROVYE to FRANCE, as music
keeps playing; timesignal 38 seconds late, ID and YL talk interspersed
with news stingers. Before 1500 it was S6-S8 with flutter; afterwards,
only slightly steadier here, both aimed away from us, but Issoudun
crosses more below the auroral zone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Dec 15 at 2350, JBA carrier from R. Chaski vs Cuban
noise jamming against nothing else; until autocutoff at 2354:48.5*
My last check was Dec 10 until 2354:59*, i.e. now 10.5 seconds earlier
over a 5-day period, keeping up the average timer slippage slightly
over 2 seconds per noctem. At some eventuality, they will figure it`s
too early and will reset the timer closer to 2400; but they obviously
don`t care about abruptly interrupting whatever programming be
outgoing on SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SWAZILAND. 4760, Dec 16 at 0337, African language vs CODAR on both
sides, from TWR scheduled 0330-0415. EiBi and Aoki/NDXC do not agree
on the Zimbabwean language breakdown. EiBi: 0330-0345 Ndau, 0345-0415
Shona; Aoki: 0330-0400 Shona, 0400-0415 Ndau. Ndau has twice as many
speakers in Moçambique than in Zimbabwe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2012 monitoring: confirmed UT
Monday December 16 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S8-S9 after a 1-second
musical interlude to avoid any dead air after ID. I have added a
second of dead air at the end of WOR, so now there is no overlap by
the too-hasty WRMI automation.

Also confirmed UT Mon Dec 16 at 0230 on 7780 and 9395 vs hi noise
level here; both OK via UTwente SDR, 7780 thataway better than 9395
off the side.

Richard Langley, NB reports on his 7780 recording last Sunday evening,
15-16 December UT:

``21:30 World of Radio (#2012; no words cut off nor overridden this
week)
01:30 World of Radio (#2012; no words cut off nor overridden this
week)
02:30 World of Radio (#2012; no words cut off nor overridden this
week) -- Richard Langley``

WOR 2012 also confirmed by gh starting at 0402 UT Mon Dec 16 on Area
51 webcast; and VP S5-S6 on WBCQ 5130 at 0429 check.

Also confirmed at 0430 UT Mon Dec 16 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+20 atop some
lite pulse jamming before fading down a bit. Reception quality of this
airing is extremely variable here.

Also confirmed starting at 1901:12 Mon Dec 16 on IRRS 7290 Romania?
Huge -50 dbM signal at UTwente SDR (carrier already on at 1857 with
some hum, ACI from China; 1859:25 cut on modulation amid Aïda in
progress, quick IRRS sign-on; pause, 1900:30 four headlines from
Feature Story News, London, but American accent: India protests;
Schumer on impeachment; new MPs in parliament; Russia testing
transpolar nuclear missile system). Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Unique Radio, NSW website now says will be active Dec 25-26, and maybe
elsewhen, with WOR times as: Mon 0900 & 0930 on 5045-USB or 3210-USB?
Not clear. Wed and Fri 0900 on 5045-USB.

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VANUATU [and non]. 5040, Dec 16 at 0720, JBA carrier, presumably
VBTC which has just reactivated SW with its new transmitter as
anticipated before yearend, and reported heard elsewhere. It`s too
late for Cuba on 5040, and too early for India. Same time more JBA
carriers from fellow Pacificans, 5055 presumed 4KZ Queensland; and
5020 Solomon Islands. Reawake at 1046 for quick check, still only JBA
carriers on all. Missing is 5045 for Unique Radio, but that would be
USB, no carrier, currently suspended and/or on 3210-USB instead.

VBTC on FB Dec 15 about this in Bislama/Pidgin:

``VBTC blong yumi evriwan
https://www.facebook.com/vbtc.vu/
VBTC 21 hrs ·

Good morning VBTC Technical team wetem ol technician blong Kordia mo
Hanjin oli stap testem ol frequencies blong Short Wave Transmitters

1800-2200 5040 Khz
[local = UT + 11]
Sapose anyone i kasem ol frequencies ia plis contactem Radio Vanuatu
long 23026 or 22999``

So not 2485, and 5040 instead of 5055 as originally registered; relax,
4KZ. 5040: 07-11 UT & 22-01 UT. 2485 and 5055 are still shown in HFCC
as of Dec 16, but not updated since Dec 10, mixed in with NZ FMO info:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbyfmo.php?seas=B19&fmor=RNZ

Ron Howard reports to the WOR iog: ``5040, Radio Vanuatu, random
listening on Dec 16. Their signature song "You Are the Only One," sung
by the "Black Brothers," heard at 1105, 1123 and while mixing with AIR
Jeypore at 1223; reception blocked at 1128, with the start of AIR IS,
via Jeypore, which was stronger than Vanuatu; still mixing together at
1248, so seems to still be testing``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2887-USB & 3016-USB, Dec 16 at 0705 in bandscan, weak
intermittent aero contacts. EiBi shows 2887 is New York for Caribbean
routes; 3016 north Atlantic routes, any of NY, Gander, Shannon,
Azores. Santa Maria was mentioned = Azores but probably a handoff from
one of the others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5006, Dec 16 at 1434, JBA carrier; JG2XA propagation
studier? See previous discussion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5798, Dec 16 at 0724 and 1437 chex, JBA carrier here not
noticed before, and not at this time from WRMI 5800. Nothing in EiBi
or Aoki; could be ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13740, Dec 16 at 1554, fair signal with flutter, rough
guess Swahili? well after RHC is finished. Nothing in EiBi or Aoki,
before 1700 RFI in French; but HFCC shows HCJB via AUSTRIA
multilingual at 1530-1630 on Saturdays only. This is the
Russian/Chechen service, but now it`s Monday, so what? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
