Logs
** CHINA. 12500, June 8 at 1254, JBA signal, presumed CNR1 jammer vs
Sound of Hope as in Aoki/NDXC. No other WOOB ones noted now (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, June 9 at 0550, RHC English with big hum during jazz
song, yet better than any of the 49m //s: 6165 S9+10 JBM; 6100 S9+20
JBM; 6060 off as always now; 6000 S9+20/10 undermodulated for a poor
runner-up. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550.0, June 9 at 2103, R. Kuwait, Arabic from S0 to S3,
just for us in C&W USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 8 at 0614, VON is S9+10/20, but just barely
modulating! About like competitor for the JBM crown, 6165 RHC.

7255-, June 9 at 0558, VON is S9 to S9+10, but again JBM during
drumming IS, which is great to hear when possible (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, June 8 at 1545 UT, K17JN-D, the 3ABN satellator
constituting Enid`s only local TV signal, is on the air and back to
``normal``, i.e. active programming on -1, -3 and –5, black dead air
on -2, -4, and -6, which nevertheless display same full signal level
on the STB, yet ``NO SIGNAL`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9320 // 12080, June 8 at 1238, ``A Whiter Shade Of
Pale`` by Procol Harum, as soon outroed in otherwise Korean
announcement. VOA Korean plays a lot of great music from The American
Songbook, to which K-Pop does not hold a candle. Both these are 250
kW, 21 degrees from Tinang, PHILIPPINES, carrying on well back to the
USA far beyond Koreas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1985 monitoring: Manuel Méndez,
Spain, reports: ``6190, Hamburger LokalRadio, Goehren, 0610-0700,
08-06, English, program “Media Network Plus”, at 0629 ID “Hamburger
LokalRadio...”, and Glenn Hauser’s program “World of Radio”. 25322``

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports:
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, June 8:
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/06/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_8.html
0630-0659 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, weak to
fair``

Barely confirmed, theme detected, Saturday June 8 at 1430 already
(instead of 1431-) on Hamburger Lokalradio, 9485-CUSB, via Utwente
SDR; as usual huge splash from 9490 Romania. I find best audibility is
in AM with 3 kHz bandwidth, rather than USB.

Confirmed Sat June 8 from *2101:29 on WRMI 9955, cutting on the air
late and JIP WOR at S5-S1; such are the risks of being the very first
program on a given transmission. Still on air at 2108, 2123 chex.

Also confirmed UT Sun June 9 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG but with some
deep fading.

Also confirmed UT Sun June 9 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, vs high
noise level, more line than storms, and can`t tell where I am in the
show to compute variable start time, but an inserted WA0RCR ID is
clearer.

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports:
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 7265 CUSB, June 9
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/06/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_9.html
1030-1059 7265 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, very weak``

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. I missed checking most of `Allan and Angela Weiner
WorldWide`, UT Sat June 8 from 0000 on WBCQ 7490v et al.,
``quadri-casting``? allegedly on all four frequencies, but John Carver
reports:

``AAWW --- Tonight's show started on time on 7490 after a bit of fill
music. Allan and Angela in the studio. Talk about it finally warming
up in Maine and the black fly problem. Then into talk of the D Day
anniversary. Ramsey calls at 0020 and continues the discussion which
by now has morphed into the treatment of the Jews since the time of
the Romans. Some Trump talk and questions about what's wrong with the
Democrats in Congress. Another phone call at 0030 from a man who
visited Allan and Angela at the station last weekend.

Turning to the superstation, Allan says it should be on the air by
July 1. Parts for the transmitter have been received and the work on
the antenna is almost finished. All that's left on the antenna is to
tighten the reflector screen. Will be testing the last week of June.
Mentioned that the ERP of the antenna would be twenty megawatts.

Phone call at 0047 from Mr. Transistor Norm. Reading of emails at 0056
and closing prayer at 0058. Program was off the air at 0100 and 7490
was off the air at 0104. John, Mid-North Indiana``

Meanwhile, WBCQ has registered with FCC and HFCC a much different
schedule for 9330 than the original imaginary one of a wide variety of
languages and targets for the 24 hours, one hour each; instead:

9330 0300 0700 3,4 BCQ 500 280 0 216 1234567 240519 271019 D Eng
9330 0700 0800 27 BCQ 500 47 0 216 1234567 240519 271019 D Eng

9330 2300 0300 10 BCQ 500 255 0 216 1234567 240519 271019 D Eng
Note: I have all the columns lined up. I HATE wp programs which remove
intentional spaces (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Saturday June 8, WTWW-2 `Theater Organ in [sic] the
Ozarx` does not start until 2340 when I immediately bring up the
stereo webcast instead. And it lasts 34 minutes until 2414 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1310, June 8 at 0631 UT, Colorado Broadcasters Association
PSA, guess who? 0632 UT refers to KFKA.com, and Colo. Army National
Guard PSA. Last logged presumably on October 18, 2011. It`s U2 5/1 kW,
i.e. ND day, tight slightly clockwise from N/S night pattern not good
for here to the SE of Greeley CO, making me suspect they are now on 5
kW ND day pattern (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 91.7, KOSU, June 8 circa 1345 UT, NPR `Weekend Edition
Saturday` with 3-minute feature; transcript and audio link:

WHA, the oldest public radio station in the country, is digitizing
recordings dating to the 1920s as part of a project called "Preserving
Rural and Women's Programming on Wisconsin Public Radio."
https://www.npr.org/2019/06/08/730898450/university-of-wisconsin-aims-to-preserve-nearly-century-old-public-radio
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6170, June 8 at 1711, JBA talk via Utwente SDR. I`m
hoping by elimination this will be the almost-monthly broadcast of
100-watt Scandinavian Weekend Radio, FINLAND. NZ is on 6170 but
off at 1650 –-- except Saturdays to 1858! This is still well before
summer sunset in Europe, so who knows which it might be? Other SWR
frequencies 5980 and 11720 are empty, while 11690 is full of French,
i.e. CRI via East Turkistan. SWR is often found NOT to be adhering to
its own frequency schedule.

Let us NOTE what WRTH 2019 page 470 says about this: ``The station is
run as a series of temporary licences for 24h on the first Sat local
time for three consecutive months. No transmission in Jan, May, Sep as
required by law, before the club is entitled to a new series of
licences`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7989.6-LSB, approx., early UT June 9 but forgot to note
the time, very poor intermittent talk, can`t really resolve into clear
USB or LSB. Suspect it`s second harmonic of 80m ham, but nothing
audible in 3994-3995 area, less propagable vs summer noise level
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17550, June 8 at 1811, JBA carrier with Doppler flutter
--- could Kuwait be on earlier than 2000? Nothing else is scheduled;
but with BFO I detect multiple carriers, and seems high-speed RTTY
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Saturday, June 08 2019

Logs
** CUBA. 770, June 7 at 0535, YL song in Spanish has just faded up
replacing WABC which faded out [see USA]. Immediately matched to 5025,
so it`s Radio Rebelde, 10 kW in Las Tunas-Victoria (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9570, June 6 at 1351, CRI relay in music, distorted.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, June 7 at 0559, RHC English is JBM/suptorted; 6060 is
off as usual; 6100 undermodulated but sufficient at S9+30; 6165 S9/+10
but JBM. 5040 had been VG S9+20/30 but just now to dead air and off;
12200 at 0601 is a JBA carrier, 2 x 6100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. UNIDENTIFIED. 9155, June 7 at 1051, another mystery open
carrier, S9+10/20. 9200 is audible too but a JBA carrier now, probably
the SOH/CNR1 radio war. I try to be sound asleep during this
unfamiliar daypart. O, Aoki shows:

``9155 0955-1050 CUB Cuban Spy Numbers Spa Bejucal 1246`` – days =
Sun/Mon/Wed/Fri and this is Friday. We know these transmissions
include dead air, and this one is on a minute overtime (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 940, June 7 at 1112, tropical music from N/S, 1114 maybe ID
just at our earliest sunrise, but too much splash from local 960 KGWA.
There are no US SS along this axis, and very likely XERKS Reynosa,
Tamaulipas, 1/1 kW, with a romántica format. Some other 940s have left
for FM, per IRCA Mexican log, such as XEYJ in Coahuila, but not
including XEQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1310, June 7 at 1103, choral Mexican NA loops between S and
SSW; 1105 announcement by super-hype voice actor, probably full ID but
just too much QRM. From direxion, timezone and power, most likely is
XETIA in Guadalajara (as in tapatía), but lesser stations also in
Taxco, Monterrey and Puebla if not the CP in Querétaro. Then it`s
overcome by another SS from east/west, must be Unitedstatesian, i.e.
KZIP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, June 7 at 0031 UT, music segués on strong signal,
must be semi-local WBBZ Ponca City reactivated, as of UT June 6 since
it was certainly not on the day before. First noted off May 27
following storms and flooding so that`s 11 days lost, during which I
did not gain much luck definitely DXing on this graveyard. Yes, at
0048 UT, ``Thanks for staying with us, Sunny 104.7 moved to 1230, with
Delilah on the air every evening`` – that change happened quite a
while ago as I previously commented; while sibling station really on
104.7 is now something else. Continues with some PSAs (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9794.976, June 7 at 1055, JBA off-frequency stands out
in a USB 1-kHz-step bandscan (my usual method). Soon recognize ``Jesus
Saves`` IS of FEBC, interspersed with IDs? unreadable maybe English;
1100 switch to other theme music and tonal language. Aoki/NDXC shows
it`s an hour in Vietnamese from the Iba site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1985 contents: Antarctica,
Australia, Bhutan, Brasil, Canada, China, Congo DR, Cook Islands,
Cuba, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Grenada, Guinea, India,
Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, North America, Puerto Rico, Romania, USA;

WORLD OF RADIO 1985 monitoring: confirmed first US SWBC, Friday June 7
at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S4-S8; tsk, I myself intuned a few seconds too
late to evaluate any upcut.

Also confirmed UT Saturday June 8 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 vs
storm/noise level, fair, no upcut following Ian ID (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, June 6 at 0415, WWCR is S9+10 of dead air except for
some hum, about same level as modulated 5935; at 0453, 5890 is off and
5935 has declined to VP level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, June 7 at 1045, WTWW-1 is S9+10/20 of dead air instead
of SFAW; for quite a while now it had been merely undermodulated
(Glenn Hauser, OK, dx listening digest)

** U S A. 770, June 7 at 0533 UT, WABC ID in passing amid adstring.
Not often makes it here, 1300+ miles from NYC, with the KKOB Santa Fe
230-watt filler more likely. WABC soon fades out completely as music
fades up, matched to Rebelde, Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1310, June 7 at 1106, noticias and La Caliente ID in
passing, looping E/W, just faded up over a real Mexican [q.v.]. NRC AM
Log shows it`s our closest to the west, KZIP Amarillo TX, U1
1000/88/500 watts psra, where they know how to spell hot (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9610-9630, June 7 at 0348, rapid clicking of OTH radar
right smack dab in the middle of the 31m broadcast band --- but
luckily(?) no broadcasters are audible in this range (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

carrier, S9+10/20. 9200 is audible too but a JBA carrier now, probably
the SOH/CNR1 radio war. I try to be sound asleep during this
unfamiliar daypart. O, Aoki shows:

``9155 0955-1050 CUB Cuban Spy Numbers Spa Bejucal 1246`` – days =
Sun/Mon/Wed/Fri and this is Friday. We know these transmissions
include dead air, and this one is on a minute overtime (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 940, June 7 at 1112, tropical music from N/S, 1114 maybe ID
just at our earliest sunrise, but too much splash from local 960 KGWA.
There are no US SS along this axis, and very likely XERKS Reynosa,
Tamaulipas, 1/1 kW, with a romántica format. Some other 940s have left
for FM, per IRCA Mexican log, such as XEYJ in Coahuila, but not
including XEQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1310, June 7 at 1103, choral Mexican NA loops between S and
SSW; 1105 announcement by super-hype voice actor, probably full ID but
just too much QRM. From direxion, timezone and power, most likely is
XETIA in Guadalajara (as in tapatía), but lesser stations also in
Taxco, Monterrey and Puebla if not the CP in Querétaro. Then it`s
overcome by another SS from east/west, must be Unitedstatesian, i.e.
KZIP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, June 7 at 0031 UT, music segués on strong signal,
must be semi-local WBBZ Ponca City reactivated, as of UT June 6 since
it was certainly not on the day before. First noted off May 27
following storms and flooding so that`s 11 days lost, during which I
did not gain much luck definitely DXing on this graveyard. Yes, at
0048 UT, ``Thanks for staying with us, Sunny 104.7 moved to 1230, with
Delilah on the air every evening`` – that change happened quite a
while ago as I previously commented; while sibling station really on
104.7 is now something else. Continues with some PSAs (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9794.976, June 7 at 1055, JBA off-frequency stands out
in a USB 1-kHz-step bandscan (my usual method). Soon recognize ``Jesus
Saves`` IS of FEBC, interspersed with IDs? unreadable maybe English;
1100 switch to other theme music and tonal language. Aoki/NDXC shows
it`s an hour in Vietnamese from the Iba site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

WORLD OF RADIO 1985 monitoring: confirmed first US SWBC, Friday June 7
at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S4-S8; tsk, I myself intuned a few seconds too
late to evaluate any upcut.

Also confirmed UT Saturday June 8 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 vs
storm/noise level, fair, no upcut following Ian ID (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, June 6 at 0415, WWCR is S9+10 of dead air except for
some hum, about same level as modulated 5935; at 0453, 5890 is off and
5935 has declined to VP level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, June 7 at 1045, WTWW-1 is S9+10/20 of dead air instead
of SFAW; for quite a while now it had been merely undermodulated
(Glenn Hauser, OK, dx listening digest)

** U S A. 770, June 7 at 0533 UT, WABC ID in passing amid adstring.
Not often makes it here, 1300+ miles from NYC, with the KKOB Santa Fe
230-watt filler more likely. WABC soon fades out completely as music
fades up, matched to Rebelde, Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1310, June 7 at 1106, noticias and La Caliente ID in
passing, looping E/W, just faded up over a real Mexican [q.v.]. NRC AM
Log shows it`s our closest to the west, KZIP Amarillo TX, U1
1000/88/500 watts psra, where they know how to spell hot (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9610-9630, June 7 at 0348, rapid clicking of OTH radar
right smack dab in the middle of the 31m broadcast band --- but
luckily(?) no broadcasters are audible in this range (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
