Logs
** CUBA. 9720, Jan 12 at 2210, RHC in Kriyol, not English! Which
supposedly had settled into the 22-23 UT slot. 2253 recheck, song in
Spanish, 2255 French announcement; a smidgin before 2300, RHC English
theme and opening by ``Ed Newman``, cut off the air after about 6
words! So the studio playout had their language tapes mixed up, and
the transmitter site wasn`t about to compensate for that. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000 // 6165, Jan 13 at 0137, RHC is S9+10/20 just barely
modulated with soul music, 0140 English announcement, also somewhat
suptorted. Meanwhile 6060 Spanish blasts in. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 5975-5980-5985, Jan 12 at 2313, DRM noise, not strong but
plenty to wipe out any carrier from R. Chaski, PerÃ, supposedly still
on air until 2400v*. Got to be RRI Galbeni, English to W Europe,
registered as analog, but has flipped to DRM before (or maybe is
really always DRM).

More evidence that failing DRM should *never* have been allowed to
pollute the analog SWBC bands. There are scads of open areas in the
nearby fixed utility bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 12 at 2310, no signal from VOT English to N
America, again. Is anyone hearing this any more? A couple times
before, I figured it were more of their frequent screwups. OTOH,
propagation is pitiful, hardly anything else on 49m from Eurasia, the
best being 6175 CRI Spanish, 280 degrees from CÃrrik, Albania ---
should be close enough to Emirler for both to propagate if on (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1964 monitoring: confirmed Saturday January
12 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair-good. Next:

0400vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0415], ND

* also webcast; direct linx to these and many others at:

Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.980v, Jan 12 at 2300, WBCQ starts with ``Welcome to the
second Good Time Oldies; who am I? West Virginia Paul``. Good S9+10,
then plays at least three songs seguÃ; editing seems a bit rough. Not
sure what he means by ``second`` as the show has been running for many
more weeks than that --- and it`s the one scheduled for an even one
hundred minutes. Beyond that nothing known about him or it. No sign of
the 7490.00 ChiCom CCI, but propagation is pitiful and we`re lucky to
get anything intra-continental, let alone extra-, but WBCQ unusually
so close to frequency on the low rather than high side would make a
heterodyne almost subaudible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Sat Jan 12 at 2313, WRMI with VORW, // stronger 9395.
The System G program grid claims it`s on 9395 only, just another
example of reality not matching the schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, UT Sun Jan 13 at 0130, I`m all set to hear the
`International Radio Report` via Unique Radio via WINB --- but it`s
only a JBA carrier! Little besides WRMI and Cuba are propagating on
31m. By 0153 I`ve brought up the WINB webcast at
http://winb.mntts.com:82/broadwave.mp3
and what do I hear? The song ``Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald``, which
is semi-Canadian, but not what I would expect to be played on IRR.
Finally at 0159 we hear Aussie Tim ID as Unique Radio, a bit more
music before cut off for WINB ID and 0200 ``FKB Radio Sermon Time`` -
-- he`s looking forward to worldwide coverage on 500 kW WBCQ 7490.

UT Fri Jan 11 at 0130 I was also all set to hear Unique`s other
primetime spot on 9265, till I realized it had been an hour earlier at
0030. But I expect what I heard this time was the ending of that show,
not the IRR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4980, Jan 12 at 2315, Supreme Master TV on WRMI has QRM from
weak RTTY about 4981.15, separate from the much stronger RTTY on 4985;
yet evitable by LSB tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Jan 13 at 0136, via WHRI, VOV in stilted
English, something about the Mekong Delta, S9+20/30 --- they`ve done
it again, mixed up languages as Spanish is supposed to air on the
half-hours. Also Larry Zamora received a colorful New Year card from
them, but accompanying schedule is slightly outdated, claiming VOV are
also on 6175 to North America. That was the relay via defunct RCI! And
6175 had replaced BBCWS relay which gave up on us even before that
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search earlier than I
usually try it, after not detecting any LWBC, Jan 12 from 2323 UT on
the R75 and E-W longwire: 531, 549, 558, 585, 603, 612, 621(2), 639,
684, 711, 729, 747, 774, 837, 855, 864, 882, 909*, 936, 954, 999,
1026(2), 1044(2), 1053, 1089*, 1107, 1152(2), 1179(2), 1215*, 1296,
1305(2), 1341, 1422, 1458(2), 1485, 1503, 1539. *the three strongest
ones all correlate with UK; (2) = at least two carriers beating; again
the most pronounced being 1305 likely Spain synchros (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9000, Jan 12 at 2212, S5-S9 of open carrier, still at
2250 and 2309 chex. Not a local device or receiver birdie since it`s
propagationally fading. Maybe some broadcast transmitter supposed to
be higher in the 9 MHz band, or utility lower in the 8 MHz band, but
slipped a finger or defaulted to even MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780, Jan 11 at 1938, RNA is reactivated here, Brazuguese
at S9-S6 (and no 11775 Anguilla to bother). First reported by Jorge
Freitas, Bahia, ``11780 RNA volta a transmitir. 11 Jan Ãs 0013, o
sinal à bom com leve QRM desde a CRI na mesma frequÃncia``. Then
Wolfgang Bueschel measured it at 0037 on 11780.008.
http://radios.ebc.com.br/nacionalamazonia

I hear 11780 again at 0002 Jan 12, S9+10/20 with TC for 10:03, ID only
for EBC, 300 kW on 980. Nothing on 6180 as RNA continues to employ
only one transmitter. This alleviates the collision with China-via-
Cuba.

11780 sked is probably about 10-02 UT, like 6180 had been, i.e. 8 am
to midnight in EBDST. 0159 recheck, 11780 still on good, but signing
off a program, 0200 ``meia-noite`` TC and into news of Bolsinaro
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13089-USB, Jan 12 at 1530 tune-in, synthetic OM voice says
W8CEN, so at first I think I have a hamspur, but on into marine
weather, the readout rather garbled. EiBi shows 13089 is timeshared
among USCG Guam, Honolulu, Point Reyes CA, and Chesapeake VA --- with
NMN at the latter scheduled 1530-1605, and nothing immediately before
it.

As I was tuning up several minutes prior, I kept hitting bits of
distorted FMish talk spurring around various frequencies such as
12192, 12222, 12262; all I could confirm was that they were not // RHC
but now I wonder if they were from NMN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 15580, Friday Jan 11 at 2120, VOA GB inbooming during weekly
`Music Time in Africa` with extremely repetitive tune, but fading way
down by 2130. May have been getting a sporadic E boost (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1964 monitoring:

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio
via HLR on 6190 CUSB, Jan 12:
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/01/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_12.html

As often, I sleep past the Unique Radio/WINB/WRMI Saturday morning

** U S A. 5950, Sat Jan 12 at 1517, WRMI with Blalock the Blaster
exploding into huxtergasms* (* credit Harold Frodge for this coinage),
as it is now // 9955 which extends for him past 1500 only on weekends
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.13v, UT Sat Jan 12 at 0109, WBCQ `Allan Weiner
Worldwide` is VP, something about The Wall; if // on 9330+, that`s a
JBA carrier. 5130+ is also VP with something else. Computer is not on
so I won`t be hearing webcast.

Recheck at 0151, now 7490 is fading up sporadically as AW is saying
the Superstation project is running about 5 months behind because of
vendor delays so maybe not on air until summer; but he is very
impressed with the transmitter itself, state-of-the-art like a
spacecraft. Since will be out of FLA by Feb, maybe will attend SW
Winterfest, and maybe also with others such as Tom. Sad news: we lost
Goddess Irena, who died January 3. Her program will still be running
Thursdays at 7:30 pm EST on 7490. (How about Wednesdays at 5:30 pm ET
= 2230 UT right after World of Radio, as we have been hearing her?
WBCQ sked shows her only then, with `Camp Constitution Radio` at the
time AW thought). Over to John H. Carver for a fuller report on AWWW:

``Show started this evening on 7490 after a period of dead air. No
signal that I could detect. Buzz words over the theme song had to do
with the Wall. Allan and Angela in the studio in FLA. Opening
statement from Allan musing about rigging a microphone in their
bedroom so they could do the show from their bed. Talk immediately
jumped to the wall and why congress should support it.

Phone call from Freddie at 0111 urging Allan to continue his rant and
talk to him later. Poor signal on 7490 this evening with a lot of
noise and some fading. 5130 was carrying other programming. Freddie
finally gets to speak and backs Trump on the wall. He was on the phone
for twenty-one minutes and the two of them fed off of each other as
the political talk grew and grew. Into another phone call immediately
after Freddie disconnected continued the discussion but eventually
morphed into a discussion about the antenna for the superstation.

Another phone call at 0147 from Tony Straka. He asked if Allan and
Angela were going to make an appearance at this year's Winterfest as
they would be up North this year during the fest. Allan couldn't
promise but did say that it might happen.

Allan announced that Goddess Irena had died at the age of eighty-five.
He said that are still running her program and will continue to do so
until her spot is sold to someone else. Closing prayer at 0158.
Program was off the air at 0200 as was 7490. 5130 was still on the air
running other programming. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 17775, Sat Jan 12 at 1608, KVOH is a JBA carrier when its
only airing of Wavescan is supposed to emanate. At solar-minimum,
stations may want to reconsider putting their only egg in the 16m
basket.

This is supposed to be one of the first airings of each new WS which
are dated Sundays; at least the program sked linx to podcasts, not
including Jan 13 yet:
