Logs
** BRAZIL [and non]. 11735-, August 8 at 1846, two very poor carriers slightly apart making a LAH = low audible heterodyne between them, and a double-pitch het with offset BFO, i.e. Zanzibar and RÃdio Transmundial. I have hastened to check following this via Daniel Wyllyans, HCDX:

``RTM OFF Shortwave 09 Ago 2018? --- "A RÃdio Trans Mundial encerrou suas transmissÃes em Ondas Curtas no dia 09/08/2018. Durante mais de 20 anos a RÃdio Trans Mundial investiu nesse meio com excelentes resultados em todo o Brasil. Devido, porÃm, aos avanÃos tecnolÃgicos na Ãrea de comunicaÃÃo e apÃs muita reflexÃo e oraÃÃo, entendemos que esta era a melhor decisÃo a tomar. Vocà pode nos acompanhar atravÃs de nosso site â Transmundial.org.br â aplicativo, e emissoras afiliadas, meios nos quais temos experimentado grande crescimento em audiÃncia nos Ãltimos anos. Agradecemos primeiramente a Deus pelo privilÃgio de comunicarmos a mensagem de salvaÃÃo em Jesus Cristo pelas Ondas Curtas. TambÃm agradecemos a vocà e todos os ouvintes que nos
acompanharam durante este tempo. Que Deus nos abenÃoe e nos ajude a avanÃarmos cada vez mais. Contamos com suas oraÃÃes e parceria". Grande abraÃo da RTM``

Google translation improved by gh:

``RTM OFF Shortwave 09 Aug 2018? --- "RÃdio Trans Mundial closed its broadcasts on SW on 09/08/2018 [Google changed this to 08/08!]. For more than 20 years, Trans World Radio invested in this medium with excellent results all over Brazil. But due to technological advances in communication, and after much reflection and prayer, we understand that this was the best decision to make. You can follow us through our website - Transmundial.org.br - app, and affiliated broadcasters, media through which we have experienced great growth in audience. We thank God first for the privilege of communicating the message of salvation in Jesus Christ through the Short Waves. We also thank you and all the listeners who accompanied us during this time. May God bless us and help us to advance more and more. We count on your prayers and partnership." RTM's Big Embrace``

To which I replied: ``Says RTM closed down SW permanently on August 9 [sic] in past tense even tho it is still August 8 in Brasil. No more QRM to Zanzibar on 11735!! But try today in case it still be on until 2100v* one last time. Other frequencies 5940v and 9530 were not so well heard``

11734.98 is approx. VP frequency of RTM; at 1857 Aug 8 it does sound like Brazilian intonation. Usual closedown of both is circa 2100, so I`m remonitoring at 2046, when both are stronger, but RTM atop, now measured on 11734.972. 2058 is talking about FM frequencies, website. By 2101, ZBC is off and RTM still on alone about FM, 2102 song, still past 2108. By 2229 no signal on 11735 (while much stronger 11780 RNA is still in well).

Meanwhile, Manuel MÃndez, Lugo, Spain informed the WOR iog at 2009 UT:

``Radio Transmundial, today still on air 11735 but announced will cease at 0000 Brazilian time --- 11735, Radio Transmundial, Santa MarÃa, 1940-2006 , 08-08, today still on air, religious program, male, ID "Transmundial", at 2150 they announced will cease short wave transmissions at 0000 hours 09 August. Slight interference from Zanzibar`` [which strangely had come back on]

I reply: That would be 0300 UT, presumably meaning UT August 9 altho it could mean August 10, as ``midnight`` is always ambiguous as to which day it pertain. Why don`t people realize this in any language??

By 0155 UT August 9, no signal detectable on 11735 (but 11780 RNA is still in well, altho doubtless higher powered; 11735 per WRTH is the second-highest powered ZY at 50 kW). It would normally be off after 2100 unless they prolong it for a finale. The lower frequencies would be nightlier. But can`t hear any carrier around 5940v with heavy splash from 5935 WWCR. 9530 a JBA carrier which could easily be 4765 x 2, Progreso Cuba. Glenn.

Jorge Freitas, Brasil replies to the WOR iog, here in my translation:

``Glenn, I heard them talking about this at 2036 on 11735. Broadcasts cease today 8 August. The programs will be presented by Bonaire on 800 kHz with 440 kW. They alleged that among the problems were adequate financing, low audience for SW programs compared to internet. Talked about the cost of electricity for radio and elevated cost of maintenance. One tube which burnt out cost 20 kiloreais. Lamented closing of broadcasts to DXers and said that if there were a much greater SW audience they would not close it. They get an average of 50 kiloconnexions daily for online radio. Their ANATEL license expired today and was not renewed``

So another SW station bites the dust, but look at the bright side: one less gospel-huxter. Manuel MÃndez laments it and says in Google translation, improved by gh:

``RÃdio Transmundial, for all the world to hear", as it used to be, every night, closed surprisingly at night, and treacherously. The emblematic Brazilian religious station left short wave on August 9 at 0000 hours in BrasÃlia, 0300 UT. Only a few hours earlier, on the afternoon of August 8, Brazilian DXer Daniel Wyllyans had informed, through Hard Core DX, that, according to the station's broadcast, it would stop broadcasting on the shortwave on the 9th day of August

The best time, here in Spain, to tune into RÃdio Transmundial was around 1900 UT at its usual frequency of 11735 kHz. Before that time, normally it used to be very interfered with by Zanzibar on the same frequency, but after 1900 the signal from Zanzibar tends to decrease a lot and the Brazilian increases, and at 2000 hours, many days only hear RÃdio Transmundial, and other days with slight interference from the African station.

The undersigned was listening, for the last time, to RÃdio Transmundial at 11735 kHz, between 1940 and 2020 hours on August 8, and, indeed, at 1950 they announced that at 0000 hours on August 9 they would leave short wave, giving thanks for our having accompanied them for more than 20 years and that, due to technological advances, it was the best decision they could make, because now many people listened to them through mobile devices and the internet.

From 2000 on, the signal was good here in Lugo, heard loud and clear, SINPO 34433.

"RÃdio Transmundial, para todo o mundo ouvir", that's what the identification slogan says, but from now on, it will be heard by many fewer listeners. This station had strong coverage through short wave all over Brazilian territory and in other countries, due to the good quality of the signal, in comparison to other Brazilian stations, and the good quality of its programs, besides religious programs, always with moderate talk, broadcast news, music and other programs.

Surely they will lose many listeners in many areas of Brazil and Latin America, especially in the immense rural areas where there is not easy access to the internet.

"RÃdio Transmundial, for all the world to hear", does not want us to hear it, as of now, at 11735 kHz, with its usual programs "Bom Dia RTM", "HistÃria das MissÃes" and many other programs, and follows the fashion by other stations to focus only on the internet, while shortwave, especially in many parts of the world, is still the most suitable means to reach a multitude of listeners.

Below is the postal address, email address and web page through which you can send a message via a form, for all those who want to complain about the closure of the short wave RÃdio Transmundial. I have already done so. Greetings. Manuel MÃndez.

** CHINA. 9680, August 9 at 1244, RTI is being jammed by the double-whammy of CNR1 // 11785, and Firedragon music mix.

9660, August 9 at 1244, this RTI is being jammed by two CNR1s echoing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also TAIWAN [and non]

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 11336-AM, Aug 9 at 1316, YL ATC at Gander Radio is on AM assigning primary and secondary comms frequencies to some flight as 10021 and 8879 (or was it 2879 upon second hearing?), and selcall tones. Yet simplex replies from flights are in USB.

11279-USB, Aug 9 at 1317, OM ATC also at Gander Radio, with a United flight, selcalls (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, Aug 9 at 1600 UT check, K202BY, Family Radio satellator in Enid is still dead air, ever since first noticed July 30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF channel 17, Aug 9 at 1415, K17JN-D satellator, Enid`s only local TV signal, has been partially restored from six black screens. 17-1 the only one showing those call letters, LR bug as 3ABN. 17-3 AmFacts [Am=Amazing], LR bug as AFTV. 17-4 3ABN-ES, LR bug 3ABN [+illegible, probably EspaÃol to match the audio]; 17-5 as Hope201, bug UR arms raised in praise, and Hope Channel. 17-2 is dark, and so is 17-6, which had been that way long before the latest crash. I haven`t followed it closely, but I believe the 3ABN multi-network subchannel lineups are not always the same depending on time of day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN. 9199.920, August 9 at 1241, JBA carrier, must be Sound of Hope escaping jamming. Aoki/NDXC has the frequency as 9199.907, pretty close. I wonder if all the .XXX exact measurements for SOH are from Wolfgang BÃschel`s exhaustive SDR survey now several months old? Just yesterday I had only CNR1 jamming on 9200, but an hour earlier at 1142.

[non] 9180, August 9 at 1241, today this is the SOH frequency obliterated by strong CNR1 jamming // 11785, while SOH is Aoki-listed on 9180.018 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CHINA

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1942 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 8 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490v, very poor, and like last week starting a semiminute later on much better WRMI 9955 from 2100.5. It had just come on with IS & ID loop at *2058. At 2123 measured WBCQ at 7490.028. 2330, not aired on WBCQ 9330v. Next:

** U S A. 9455, UT Thursday August 9 at 0155, WRMI is still on here with Hal Turner, much stronger than // 7490 WBCQ. Despite WRMI skedgrid showing System L for 9455, which was UT Thursday only at 00-04, as ``currently off air`` as of August 1! Maybe Hal belatedly renewed his contract for 01-03. VG signal on 355 azimuth. Too bad this is not employed for full time variety of programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10277.77-USB, Aug 9 at 1249, weak 2-way in unknown language, maybe Tagalog (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** AUSTRALIA. 5055, August 8 at 1146, JBA carrier from presumed 4KZ Queensland, despite storm noise level and switch to indoor longwire for safety. During July, Ron Howard had noted it cutting off the air by a timer, a few seconds earlier from one day to the next, reaching 1148:52* by July 31, so I am expecting carrier to vanish sometime during the 1148 or maybe 1147 minute --- but it does not! I am about to tire of listening to its JBA tone with BFO on 5054, when finally it stops at approx. 1157:11.5*, wouldn`t you know it, when I have glanced away from my watch. Perhaps Ron can confirm the new timing.

4835, that accomplished, still on the indoor longwire, I retune for the other low power Aussie, OzyRadio in NSW which Ron says had reactivated August 3 after a monthlong absence. 4840 WWCR has just closed at 1158, helping to audiblize the 4835 JBA carrier, but which here could also be Sikkim. Ozy normally stays on much later, far too long after sunrise here, so I am not going to log it by matching a cutoff time like with 4KZ. I shall be very lucky ever to hear something really identifiable from OzyR, such as the ex-RA version of ``Waltzing Matilda`` it plays at some set times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9200, Aug 8 at 1142, CNR1 jammer // echo jammer on 9660, and 9680. It`s here to block Sound of Hope, of course, per Aoki on 9199.907 but no het heard from that. I wonder how permanent, non-variable those exact SOH measurements may remain? CNR1 off after 1200 at 1205 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Aug 8 at 0605, RHC English is VP S9-S5 and also JBM; 6000 is S9+10 but JBM somewhat distorted; 6060 is S9+10/20 with good mod; 6165 S9+20/30 with good mod. 5040 is off by now, but 5025 Rebelde is also just barely modulated at S9+10 to S7. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Aug 8 at 1201, RHC is S9+10 but JBM; // 6100.00 has good mod at S9+20/30, but fails to radiate from off-frequency-minus. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

13660, Aug 8 at 1323, RHC is S4-S6 here and mostly readable, despite being a leapfrog mixing product another 40 kHz lower of squealy S9+10 13740 over normal S9+20 13700. But there is *no* matching leapfrog the other side on 13780; what`s not with that?? Nor are there any extremely distorted FM spurblobs today out of the 13700 transmitter. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 9790, Aug 8 at 0545, RFI in French with OK modulation rather than humbuzz; 7220, Dandal Kura via Issoudun is very poor, carrier seems a bit rough on BFO, but too weak to tell if humbuzzy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA [non]. 7290.00, Aug 8 at 1126, JBA carrier, not off-frequency, so not reactivated RRI Nabire, but rather after 1100, CNR1 Beijing site, per NDXC/Aoki. Window for Nabire is when I should stay in deep sleep. Aoki says it starts at 0500, but Ron Howard does not report it before 0742 and off as early as 0910 to as late as 1026*. FWIW, Nabire sunset is 0903 UT, varying little as almost equatorial. Would not hurt to check later the ex-night frequency 6125, which they stopped using long before 7289.92 quit a biyear ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550.00, August 6 at 2133, JBA carrier from presumed R. Kuwait in Arabic toward California, not way low as previously caught by me and Ivo. Need to keep an ear on this for English at 20-21 as happened at least once, per Ivo Ivanov:

``Strong signal of Radio Kuwait in English/Arabic on 17549.7, July 29
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2018/08/strong-signal-of-radio-kuwait-in.html
2000-2100 17549.7 KBD 250 kW / 350 deg ENAm English, instead of Arabic
2100-2400 17549.7 KBD 250 kW / 350 deg ENAm Arabic Gen Sce, as sched``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 650, Aug 8 at 1118, Radio 65 promo that it`s also ``en el cien --- 100.5 FM``. XETNT Los Mochis, still holding onto AM, and we hope for good, as Mexican AMers are dropping like flies, so we need to keep reconfirming the ones that remain.

810, Aug 8 at 1110, dominant signal from south, ID between songs as ``Radio Rey, la mÃs [poderosa?], seis, nueve minutos``. Should not be claiming powerfulness, as IRCA Mex Log had it as only 1000/100 watts, XERI, Reynosa, Tamaulipas, and so does WRTH 2018. By now probably on hefty day power. On DX-398 vs heavy local storm noise. Our sunrise 1144 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.932, Aug 8 at 0532, VON is already on with song prÃlude, maybe in English? Cut off at 0557 for percussion IS runup to 0600 Hausa opening; VG S9+10/30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9794.98 approx., Aug 8 at 1133, ``O, Sole Mio`` in non-Italian language catches my ear; not CNR1 as not // 11785 jammer. EiBi shows FEBC Iba site this hour in Vietnamese, and indeed 1137 Viet announcement follows. So they probably turned the great tune into a hymn (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 15119.874, Aug 7 at 1314, JBA carrier, from what? Nothing scheduled on 15120 at this hour per NDXC/Aoki, unless Saudi Arabia in Bengali stayed on late after 0900-1157. Aha, EiBi, now updated to Aug 3, shows not only that but Riad [sic] further in Urdu at 1200-1600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1941 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday August 7 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG. While producing 1942, remaining two airings via WRMI not checked as normally JBA carriers or less, anyway: Tuesday 2030 on 5950, 7780; 2130 on 5950.

WORLD OF RADIO 1942 contents: Anguilla, Australia, Bougainville, Brasil, Cambodia, China, Cuba, France, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Japan and non, MoÃambique, New Zealand, Nigeria, Romania, Russia, Somalia, South Sudan non, Taiwan, USA, Zimbabwe non; and the propagation outlook

WORLD OF RADIO 1942 monitoring: confirmed first SW airing Tuesday Aug 7 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v; this is the one reliable 9330 airing if everything clix, and I had availablized it more than an hour earlier.

** U S A. 17775, Aug 8 at 1334, KVOH is already on way early before nominal *1400, with praise music in Spanish, S8 and building. Propagation varies widely; some days JBA after 1400. Websked at

still claims to start SW at 1400, but webstream is always running with Spanish or English available if they turn on transmitter elsewhen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 770, Aug 8 at 1113 UT, ``Newsradio 94.5 FM and AM 770 KKOB``, new ``Roswell`` movie to be made in Santa FÃ; 1116 anti-American commentary by Rush Limbaugh, making me want to puke. What a pity that NM`s #1 AM station purvey this crap (and also subordinates itself to an FM translator, which surely blox Duques from hearing 100 kW Gallup 94.5 line-of-sight at elevations in The Heights, 200 km/125 miles; now called KYAT with a Navajo name, and format/country).

KKOB relay is K233CG, on Sandia Crest, 3251 meters AMSL, with 250 watts direxional WSW across the city. KKOB already had its own full-power Cresttop FM on 93.3, but separately programmed.

Back to 770: I should not be hearing this big dominant signal at 5:13 am MDT, pre-sunrise, certainly not the 230-watt fill-in from Santa Fe, but the 50 kW main transmitter from the North Valley of ABQ, which is supposed to be nulling toward us and WABC, so either the pattern is way out of whack or they are just running non-direxional day pattern already. (BTW, no sign of TPs on 774, not in season yet, also edged by music from 780 KSPI Stillwater.)

Speaking of ABQ, later this morning at 1350-1455 UT, I catch repeat of the new season premiÃre of `Better Call Saul` on AMC cable. I`ve never followed this nor its sequel `Breaking Bad` despite the ABQ locations, out of general distaste for the subject matter, no matter how great the acting be reviewed; but decided to give this a chance. Hmmm, I don`t think I`m hooked for any more episodes (Glenn Hauser, OK, ex-Albuquerque, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 9610, August 8 at 1140, VN relay via VOA Greenville, violating Separation of Church and State, is still running in Spanish. Finishes with VR theme/IS at 1145 and immediately off by 1145.5* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11460+, slightly on the plus side, JBA carrier, August 8 at 1128. Probably explained by Aoki as Sound of Hope and/or ChiCom *jamming, but SOH Taiwan had been measured on the minus side, 11459.844. I wonder how permanent, non-variable those exact SOH measurements may remain? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** BRAZIL. 11780, UT Monday August 6 at 0151, RNB/RNA is off, unlike most evenings at this time: maybe a Sunday thing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, August 6 at 0135, R. Rebelde is OFF, but detect a JBA carrier a bit high like 5025.01: R. Quillabamba, PerÃ, or exciter only from Cuba? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba.

4765, August 6 at 0138, R. Progreso music is S9+20 but modulation breaking up. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. At least the third 60m Cuban, RHC on 5040 is OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, August 6 at 0555, this RHC English air is dead tonight, while 6165, 6060 and 5040 are very good; 6000 merely good modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXL ISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9490, August 6 at 0148, heavy jamming against R. RepÃblica via FRANCE audible underneath. The jam has a higher pitch than usually heard from the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 9790, August 6 at 0552, RFI in French, S4-S5 with big humbuzz from defective TDF Issoudun transmitter; tonight another frequency from there, 7220 with Dandal Kura is S9 and clear. Some other night, it could be the bad one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6870-AM, August 6 at 0128, VP S9 pirate with jazz, still at 0153. These say it was Mix Radio at *2352-0159*:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 15410, fair August 6 at 1551, Eye Radio via FRANCE, YL in African accented English about mp3s, ID at 1554; fair via UTwente SDR; is M-F only at 15-16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E [and non]. 9840.1 approx., August 6 at 0146 JBA talk, unknown language. Wonder if it`s always off-frequency Vietnam? NO, that`s on ``9840`` only at 10-24 UT per NDXC/Aoki. At this hour 0100-0300, it is VOA Deewa Radio in Pashto via Dhabbiya, an habitually off-frequency site.

Indeed, presumed VOV JBA carrier measured on 9839.787, as usual on the minus side, August 6 at 1313. Aoki has room for three decimal places, but hit-and-miss, mostly missed except for Sounds of Hopes; and another VOV as 9635.789 at 2145-1600. Hmmm, notice the almost-match in offness, one plus, one minus. I claim no greater accuracy than plus/minus 2 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2097.3-CW, August 5 at 0613, despite heavy storm noise level of S9+10/20, I decide to check whether the A beacon from Quartzsite AZ can be heard --- and it can! Enough to copy .- once every dekasecond. 1519 km = 944 miles, almost to CA border. BTW is missing from this:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1941 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday August 6 from 0130.5 on WRMI 7780, S9/S7 and 5850, S9+45/25. Also confirmed on Area 51 webcast UT Mon Aug 6 starting late at 0309, after ``The B-Movie Bob Show at 6:30-7 pm Eastern``, presumably from an ancient archive, overfilling during an off-week for JL. Also confirmed via WBCQ 5130- at 0329 check, poor in noise level. Also confirmed from 0330 August 6 on WRMI 9955, good S9/S9+10; and also immediate playback at 0400 on WRMI webcast only. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1942?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1942?]

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 7780, August 5 at 1306, this WRMI is on morning as scheduled now on Sundays only, gospel huxter; still a JBA carrier at 1412. 9395, at 1306 check Sunday August 5 with Brother Scare, no longer a secret `Wavescan` time.

9955, August 6 at 0145, WRMI amid `Wavescan` about Shepparton, and with Cuban pulse jamming: tnx a lot, Arnie! 0130 Monday is one of dozens of WS times on WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday August 5 at 0614, despite omission from WTWW homepage and schedule, `Southern Talk in the Midnight` is still going, S9+20 but unsolid signal and combating storm noise level. If 15809.9 be // this time, is totally unpropagating. Presumably still starting at 0500 after rock music show.

15809.9 is however audible at 1413 August 5 with SFAW much weaker than // 9475. By 1920 recheck when should propagate better, is off; while 9475 is problematic, modulation cutting on & off & skipping (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, UT Monday August 6 at 0156, WWRB is S9+30 with screaming gospel huxtress; is only on UT Sun & Mon, or also UT Tue? Should always check for second harmonic 10100 as once logged, but not heard since July 15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6900-LSB, August 6 at 0143, peskie talx in Spanish, mixing with music in background or CCI from another one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
