Logs
** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, April 28 at 0221 tune-by, R. Tirana ID, music, reconfirmed via WRMI the 0200 UT Tue-Sun broadcast. The revamped skedgrid now shows R. Tirana relay in English also remains at 2300 on 5850, but Fridays alone, which is the only DOW it starts early any more at 2230; I have kept missing a confirmation check of that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9155, April 27 at 1335, CNR1 about S8, presumed the Chinese like on several 49mb frequencies, as jammer to Sound of Hope, which Aoki/NDXC shows on precisely ``9155.071 0000-2400 TWN * SOH Xi Wang Zhi Sheng Chi ? 1-7`` That was where Wolfgang BÃschel once measured it, but the * stands for the on-frequency CNR1 jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, April 27 at 0609 check, VON is AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, April 28 at 0235, S9 to +10 peaks, electronic music, then talkover repeatedly about ``young people``, voice rather like DGS, off at 0240*. Several logs here, all unID too:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,42106.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7296-USB, April 28 at 0234 quick check finds the USB hams are back, including KJ5GT (not KJ5GD as I wrote a trinight ago) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1927 monitoring: missing again Friday April 27 at 2331 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB --- still TOMBS in music bit. Next:

Full WOR sked on all outlets, podcast access:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730, April 28 at 0225, this WRMI is off, contrary to new sked showing until 0400 with TOMBS, which is still running on 7570 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), April 28 at 0009, WBCQ webcast without AW again, instead sounds like J P Ferraro (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, April 28 at 0243, this WWCR in an active hour, one of few left on air without BS, and just as I tune in, other gospel huxter mentions ``all the buzz`` --- which is really apropos, as his audio at S9+30 has a big buzz with it! Rather than a WWCR imposition, I think, but this means the 5980 leapfrog over 5935 PMS another 45 kHz beyond is also active at S7. His sermon topic has something to do with chickens (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, April 27 circa 1900 UT, KLEY Wellington KS, brief recording off the caradio showing the talking carrier cutting on and off beside the rapid click-click. Disregard too much background line noise along most Enid streets; will try again if I find a quiet spot:
http://www.w4uvh.net/KLEY1130SNAFU2.mp3
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4150-USB, April 28 at 0257, 2-way sounds like Russian, unfortunately semiblocked by a local device blob. Could be legit ship comms; 2002 Klingenfuss guidebook showed 4149-SSB as a worldwide simplex ship frequency, among many others nearby on band, but not 4150 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CANADA [and non]. 7852 approx., April 27 at 0027, bonker is QRMing CHU 7850! Something new, but believe I also noticed yesterday. Steady anvil bangs at rate of 96/minute, which conflicts with CHU at 60 pips per minute. Could avoid by tuning LSB for CHU, except it`s on USB only. Bonker, begone! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11980, April 26 at 1422, pulse jamming vs nothing, as often appears here for no historical reason, presumed +50 kHz stray/spur out of the 11930 pileup against R. MartÃ. The same thing happens at night with 6080, also 50 kHz above 6030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, April 26 at 1501, RHC opening special anniversary show as publicized yesterday, on only SW frequency normally active after 1500 and only one announced. Quick check of others on 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17 MHz finds none. 1504 introduces four panelists from management, not including minor figure Arnie, but we do hear him for a couple minutes at 1517 in a clip someone else produced, one of his multiple historical bits from `En Contacto`.

This show was promoted on website not only in Spanish but also English (at least), but the program is entirely in Spanish. They are prompting online paeans from fans, many of which are quoted, and some apparently in own voices. At 1520, someone refers to listening on 15230, but it must not be right now. 1523 mentions having relayed Voice of Vietnam during the War (a topic recently discussed in our WOR group, DXLD; that was in English for US).

1539 about plans to add three languages: Maya-QuichÃ, Aymara, and Suajili --- I do not catch whether this is a future plan or a long abandoned past plan. (BTW, what became of Italian, which was added a year or two ago to their website, but not to broadcasts? Oh oh, http://www.radiohc.cu/it is ``Errore: Manutenzione del sito`` -- at least the error message is in Italian; otherlang pages such as franÃais are fully funxional. Something`s always wrong at RHC).

1602 news headlines and resuming show, but tune-out. Could have lasted another bihour. I put up with overblown constant self-congratulation and swipes at Imperialism to glean the above tidbits (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, April 27 at 0018, RHC Spanish finally back in whack, almost, after several days of huge distorted crackling blobs. Now it`s S9+25, stronger than // 11840, merely lightly distorted and splattering plus/minus 13 or so. Something`s always wrong at RHC. I did not check previous night, but apparently already fixed then, per a report not mentioning any problem, from Luis H. Esquivel: ``Hello, spotted Radio Habana Cuba on 12000 kHz, 0310 UT 4.26.18 (35433) running their musical program La Trova Cubana, into Retratos De Jazz (musical program about international jazz) at 0330! Hmmm, a harmonic of their 6000 kHz? No, checking 6000 and the English programming was running at the time there. 73 de K6LHE`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11950, April 27 at 0020, S9+30 of dead air, as RadioCuba sloppyrators have failed to turn it off circa 0000 after `Mesa Redonda`. Lots of other RHC on same band now, 11670, 11700, 11760, 11830, 11840, 11850, 12000. Should produce some leapfrogs, so I check 12140, which would be 11760, another 190 kHz above 11950, but not even a JBA carrier to be heard on 12140; something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7210-LSB, April 27 at 0037, the Cuban/exile ham radio war is still raging here, same bit of Spanish music played repeatedly to jam other Spanish talkers, also other noises; meanwhile, ATM 7200-LSB is free of all-American naughtihams (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXL ISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, April 27 at 0041, pirate music at S5-S6, 0042 long pause, and more, past 0100 with no TOH ID when pirates should also be *required* to ID. Also unID for these:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,42080.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6905-AM, April 27 at 0042, weird sounds, 0051, country/rock song, 0055 Irish? song; past 0100 with no ID; 0104 ``Pinball Wizard`` cut short for some other song. Still going at 0133 with rock music at S9 to S9+10. Meter moves a bit with modulation, so carrier is slightly reduced. Is right between two LSB SS peskies on 6900 & 6910. Finally at 0143, ID twice as ``Welcome to Seven Trees Radio, 6-9-0-5`` with a hotmail address, and off at 0144:15*. Many more logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,42082.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 530, April 26 at 1945 UT check, K530AM Vance AFB still on with dead air; what a waste of 10? Watts (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, April 26 circa 0555 UT, I find KOSU OKC stuck in a loop of what sounds like a heavily processed voice in a couple of syllables, sometimes one, with slight variations from one to the next. This goes on and on with no breaks until 0613 when finally fires a standard canned KOSU/KOSN/KOSR cool ID by Jenifer Reynolds, who hasn`t been on staff for many years, and back to The Spy music:
http://www.w4uvh.net/KOSU-Spy-ID.mp3
This is not the first time I have heard something like this emitted by KOSU out of whack. No telling how long it was ongoing before I intuned this time (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7335, April 27 at 0035, Romanian QRM adds to the jamming and Radio MartÃ, but comes in third. Sounds the same as on clear but weaker // 9790, i.e. 0000-0200 RRI to North America. Simultaneous RRI English one-hour with classical music is on clear 7375 and weaker // 9730.

A monumental failure of coÃrdination to be blamed on IBB/OCB, which unexpectedly picked 7335. Current HFCC shows it 0000-0700 effective 25 March along with everything else, but 7335 was not in earlier HFCC versions. RRI should QSY for its own good. BTW, they`re lucky 7375 is not getting jammed by Cuba as an ex-Martà frequency, like 7355 still is (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9329.685v-CUSB, April 26 at 1428, TOMBS via WBCQ. Light het from presumed ARMENIA on 9330.0. Currently is residing considerably on the low side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, April 27 a few seconds before *0115, SLBC carrier cuts on weakly but enough to make out the 2+1 mis-timesignal ending at 0115:05 precisely. At least their offness seems now consistent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 7445, April 27 at 0033, kid voices singing and unison chanting in SW Asian language, S9 peaking at S9+25. HFCC shows it`s BBC in Prs, which means Dari, a recent addition 5 April, 0030-0100 eastward from Woofferton, then switching to OMAN for semihourly alternations with Pashto to 0330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6739-USB, April 26 at 0624, crypto alfanumeric fonetik message from US military, S9+20; a tone intrudes at each pause; ``This is Criteria, out``. 1625 resumes with ID and key of first six characters, ON5CAQ (or was it DN5CAQ, as I sleepily scribbled?). 0625 proceeds to repeat the entire sequence which I don`t bother to copy, zzz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1927 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday April 25 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, and two words behind on WBCQ 7490v. About equal levels, S9-S7. Not confirmed, Wed Apr 25 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, while TOMBS continues past 2331, and sounds // 5129.83 JBA. Once again, Thu Apr 26 at 2331, TOMBS music, no WOR.

I`ve previously asked AW whether he intends to keep WOR on this daily schedule, but no response, other than it showing up occasionally, last time being Sunday April 22. Lacking that, there are no SW airings of WOR now on UT Thursday or Friday. Unless notified that 9330 is canceled for us, I`ll keep them on the roster with provisos:

Fri 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW [maybe]
Sat 0629 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW [to resume April 28]
Sat 1431 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW [to resume April 28]
Sat 1930v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sat 2130 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW [maybe]
Sat 2300 WRMI 7780 to NE [not last two weeks; canceled?]
Sun 0200 WRMI 7780 to NE
Sun 0310v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW [to resume April 29]
Sun 1900 WRMI 9395 to NNW [NEW]
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0130 WRMI 5850 to NW, 5950 to S [? not last week], 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 0400 WRMI webcast only
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1928?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1928?]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, UT Friday April 27 at 0031, WBCQ with a guy describing how to make different ice cream flavors, John on `Voice of the Report of the Week`? NO! It`s Allan Weiner. Must be replay of an AWWW I haven`t heard. VORW had been scheduled during this hour but now it`s an ``Available Time Slot``, typically filled FTTB by AWWW.

Thursday evening anyway is still the major launch of each VORW episode on multiple WRMI frequencies. I do hear the self-absorbed guy before 0100 on 7730, 9395 and 9455 --- and again after 0100 on 5850 and 7780. The WRMI transmission skedgrid now shows 5950 on air with VORW on UT Fridays only, but it`s not, nor was it during WOR UT Monday at 0130. The blue System D program schedule below contradictorily still claims all three frequencies in use at 0100-0200 daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, April 25 at 2009, a rare ``sighting`` of WJHR, gospel huxter with US accent audible, of course none other the eponymous John Hill, his deadself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9462.1 & 9487.9, April 26 at 1432, WTWW SFAW on 9475 putting out the usual weak minus/plus 12.9 kHz spur carriers which are associated with the #2 transmitter (5085/9930), now around a #1 frequency. Whenever 5085 is on at night, the same parasites infest it. 9930 is never on any more, and I don`t hear them around 5830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, April 27 at 1945 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS has reverted to SNAFU mode of carrier and modulation cutting on and off irregularly, mixed with steady faster noise bursts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1340, April 27 at 0102 UT, classic country music is dominating for a minute or two until silly baseball game takes over. Most of the 1340s around here are sports, including closest KGHM Midwest City = OKC, but I check them all in adjacent states to find three possibilities with C&W per the NRC AM Log: KAND Corsicana TX, KSMO Salem MO, KGKG Salida CO. FWIW, on the east-west antenna; a bit early for CO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs

** CUBA. 11985-12015 approx., {time and date omitted from original report: 2126 UT April 23} horrible distorted blob of S9+20/30, and this time enough modulation to match it by AM tuning to RHC Spanish on 11840, 11760, 11860. This is not a mixing product, but an attempt to broadcast normally on scheduled 12000. The blob seems to peak about 12002, but no specific center carrier. Cf my previous unID, which was certainly this. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1927, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

12002 approx., center of distorted blob with some program modulation, April 24 at 2134, RHC still totally out of whack. Can`t they tell this at the site or by any remote monitoring? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, April 25 at 1259, RHC remains spurless, with usual strange frequency announcement at this hour, that at 15 UT, 11760 will be added! Axually it`s already on. The point is, it will then be the *only* frequency still running during the early midday siesta. And also that 6100 on 49m is now closing. Nothing about all the frequencies really vigent now, such as 13740, which is NOT on yet nor at 1311, tho should have begun well before the 1300 start of 13700. Finally at 1333 recheck, 13740 has come on. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

But wait, first news at 1300 is that tomorrow at 15 UT, RHC on radio and webcast will air a special live forum celebrating its 57th anniversary, which is really on May 1, featuring some of the founders of the station (no doubt including Arnie). WTFK? Perhaps they will add some more besides the aforementioned 11760? Here`s info from website:
http://www.radiohc.cu/especiales/exclusivas/160641-realizara-radio-habana-cuba-foro-online-por-su-57-aniversario-(+podcast)

``Realizarà Radio Habana Cuba Foro Online por su 57 aniversario (+Podcast)
FORO ONLINE 26 DE ABRIL 2018 11:00 AM (HORA DE CUBA)
``57 AÃOS CON LA VERDAD DE #CUBA``

La Habana, 24 abr (RHC) Este 26 de abril Foro Online por el Aniversario 57 de Radio Habana Cuba. Nuestras ondas radiales y redes sociales transmitirÃn en vivo entrevistas a fundadores, testimonios de sus trabajadores y anÃcdotas relacionadas a esta voz amiga que recorre el mundo.

En la Revista Cuba Online y desde nuestros perfiles oficiales en Facebook y Twitter usted podrà interactuar con un panel que darà respuestas a sus inquietudes sobre esta emisora cubana.``

Well, I have plenty of well-known inquietudes; but I would hate to be a party-pooper (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Wasted jamming department: 13820, pulsing at 1307 UT April 25, vs abandoned B-season-only R. Martà frequency. Current channel 13605 is much more heavily jammed. Before 1255 I was also hearing jamming on 7355 covering what little signal KNLS English may have had, yet another ex-Martà frequency, in the tarde. Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, April 25 at 0519, no signal from TGAV, Radio Verdad, which on weeknights normally runs until about 0610* after multi-lingual sign-off, and lovely multi-stanza anthem, viz.:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_anthem_of_Guatemala

8 stanzas alternating with 4 choruses, not very bloodthirsty, but emphasizing not being enslaved, and topped by declaring the quetzal superior to the condor and royal eagle; take that!

4055 is on at next check, April 25 at 1138 with hymn.

Dr Madrid notified us April 24 that the Radio Truth webcast had been restored, via:
http://mixlr.com/radio-verdad-chiquimula-guatemala/
It worx, but there is a bit of hum, and it`s too loud with distortion on peax (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 530, April 24 at 2135 UT check, `K530AM` Vance AFB is still open carrier/dead air (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7296-USB, April 25 at 0219, contrarian net of hams on USB, NOT LSB as conventional on 40m, (and NOT AM, either where such modes also congregate close to bandedge; are there similar opposite spots on other bands, such as LSB on 20/15/10m?). KJ5GD, Al, with much stronger W5NQH, Dave; technical chats. ARRL says W5NQH is: Johnson, David J, Odessa, TX 79761.

Apparently a regular net, but have not caught its name or schedule. Searching my archive not on the frequency but on KJ5GD finds all these 40m logs in USB. Note all the times are in the 02+ UT hour, but different days of week:

``7296-USB, Dec 2 [2017] at 0214, the contrarian net of hams on USB instead of LSB on 40m. Main one heard is K9WT discussing propagation, equipment work. Also with KJ5GT. ARRL/FCC lookup shows K9WT is VENDELY, JOHN A, Malabar, FL 32950-3603.

7275.0-USB, May 16 [2016] at 0224, informal ham net on USB, yes, upper instead of lower sideband on 40m. Gabbing about previous Dayton Hamvention rainy, 17m band being almost dead for a week, how aeronautical equipment funxions on USB only, which maybe has something to do with this anomaly. KJ5GT is one call I am fairly sure of; less sure about WD0Z, W8IMC, KM4V, as no one bothers with fonetix, and they all slur calls or are too weak.

7269.0, Sept 7 [2015] at 0212, a net of hams on USB, not LSB. If it has a name, I have yet to hear it, and the exact frequency changes around here from night to night. KJ5GT, who is CHAVEZ, ALFRED A, in Albuquerque on his S9+25 signal says he went on a 50-mile bike ride today east of the mountains where the temp was a comfortable 77 degrees; also yesterday went ``200`` miles south (presumably by auto) to Alamogordo for a hamfest, but not much of interest in overpriced gear. At 0218 over to W9RAN portable 0 who is in Columbus NE about to fold up as a storm approaches. At 0220 I find another USB ham but weak on 7290.0.

7261.0-USB, August 1 [2015] at 0232, I am bandscanning thru the 40/41 mb in USB mode to find something besides hams, but here`s a ham in USB mode! Ragchewer finally IDs as KJ5GT, I think, no fonetix, and his Js sounds like his Gs; much weaker contact is also in USB mode. I guess LSB on 40m is a convention, not a requirement, so why not? ARRL shows: CHAVEZ, ALFRED A, KJ5GT, ALBUQUERQUE, NM 87110`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1927 contents: Antarctica, Azerbaijan, Bhutan, Biafra and non, Bougainville, Canary Islands, Chad non, China, Cuba, France, Germany, Greece, Iran, Kuwait, Mongolia, North America, Papua New Guinea, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia non, South Carolina non, Swaziland, Uganda non, UK, USA, Vietnam; Alexa; and the propagation outlook

Was ready for first airings April 24: confirmed Tue Apr 24 at 2030 on WRMI 7780, poor, but unusually stronger than // 9455 still in effect; also on both at 2130, with 9455 at S4-S6 vs noise level at S2, and 7780 at S5-S8 but 100% readable. Not confirmed at WBCQ`s first chance, Tue Apr 24 at 2330 on 9330v-CUSB â music playing at 2331, presumably from TOMBS; as WOR appearances have become sporadic, hit-and-miss.

Confirmed Wed Apr 25 at 1030 on WRMI 9455, as I am unfortunately awake, reconfirmed both on air and propagating well for a change.
Chris Krug in Tulsa agrees: ``GM Glenn, just wanted to let you know WOR is on loud and clear this morning on 9455. (I didnât tune in till 1043 actually), great copy, good to have you back! Chris KC5IIE Tulsa, OK SDRplay RSP1A 40m loop``. Next:

** U S A. 3215, April 25 at 0518, WWCR-1 is off again tonight; how come? #1 transmitter seems OK, JBA as usual in daytimes on 15825 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, April 25 at 1206 UT, self-promotion for jobs at Alpha Media; see alphamedia.com or contact a P O Box in Lebanon MO, into talk show. It`s KBNN Lebanon MO, 5 kW daytimer/500 watt PSRA. Need to aim E/W by nulling KMMJ Nebraska N/S. However, the website says Alpha Media is in Farmingdale NY, software developers. Not spelt; could it be Alfa Media? No, that is even further away, in Germany! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESET)

** U S A. 990, April 25 at 1158 UT, open carrier atop CCI, so I keep listening expecting a formal daytimer sign-on; dream on. Is making a SAH of 138/minute = 2.3 Hz. By 1159 UT, English ad for Missouri Soybean Growers, mosoy.org, and CBS News bong. Only MO on 990 is: KRMO Cassville, Farm+ format, 2500/47 watts U1, but not CBS per NRC AM Log; more likely that is from KWAM Memphis TN.

990, By 1201 UT April 25, Spanish as `La Voz del Evangelio`, but may be program name rather than station. Anyhow, I am quite sure the SS is the usual KFCD Farmersville TX (Metroplex) 7000/920 U4, not a daytimer, so whence the OC just before? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1000, April 25 at 1214 UT, just as I null KTOK OKC, slow SAH of less than 1 Hz, immediate ID in passing as ``KKIM AM 1000``, which is Albuquerque NM, 10000/53 watts U1 and also PSRA of 12.2 watts. Yeah, right, another cheater on day power already, ahead of official April FCC sunrise of 1230 UT. But what would you expect from a licensee called Wild West Radio Corporation, yet religionous? In May, LSR will be 1200 UT, so they`ll have to cheat earlier than that. At 1215 UT, Chicago mentioned, could be KKIM gospel program source rather than WMVP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, April 25 at 0545 UT, praise songs in Spanish, S9+10, deep fadeout and backup, with fast SAH, signature of KIJN Farwell TX, perpetually cheating 10 kW ``daytimer`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1090, April 25 at 1217 UT, sounds like Mother Angelica, true to her nunnish calling, advocating whacking children; this and more bad advice are greeted by roars of laughter from her audience (nulliparous females?). No WEWN in English mornings on SW anymore to compare, but by 1230 UT, EWTN mentioned in a call-in (long ago?). Loops NE/SW, i.e. KEXS Excelsior Springs (KC market) MO. By nulling, soon one may choose Protestants from KAAY Little Rock AR, rather than KMXA Aurora CO which is now secular Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, April 24 at 2135 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS is not SNAFU at the moment, back in whack (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1140, April 25 at 1203 UT, immediate ID at tune-in, KXRB and Sioux Falls SD news items. Not hard to overcome KRMP OKC. To me, 1140 will always be KSOO, like in the NRC AM Log 2017-2018 as the call swap with 1000 kHz came post-publication. But I hear two or three other stations on 1000. Whatever, still 10/5 kW U2 on 1140, no doubt (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, April 25 at 1143-1145: 756, 828, strongest 846(2?), 1098 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11810-USB, approx., April 25 at 0527, INTRUDERS, weak 2-way in tonal language. Band funxional with weak Brazilians, strong Enzedder on 11725 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11885, April 25 at 0528, pop songs, language unknown, S2-S5 past 0531 when sounds like praise song in English. Only thing in HFCC is CNR at 03-12, 50 kW, 230 degrees from Urumqi. More specifically from EiBi: PBS Xinjiang in Uighur. Likewise Aoki/NDXC. Could it be a test from KNLS? Scheduled on 11885 only at 08 for an hour in Mandarin (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13564.36 approx., April 25 at 1305, JBA beacon ID as RF continually. LWCA still has no location for this other than gridsquare EM96 which corresponds to WV or VA, but as of 4/18 log on 13564.330
http://www.lwca.org/sitepage/part15/index.htm

Someone called Finman started it last November, explained here with lots of responses, 3 pages so far:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,38588.0.html
Nothing about location of course, but ``glad it`s making it to the west coast``, where it must not be. BTW, HFU pages periodically display an ad for such cheap Part 15 mini-transmitters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA [and non]. 15140, April 23 at 1758 on caradio, RHC is already on in tail of Spanish, tnx to sloppyraters; and with a SAH of about 2 Hz; 1800 opening RHC Arabic vs music from understation Radio Sultanate of Oman, a long-standing collision. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11985-12015 approx., horrible distorted blob of S9+20/30, and this time enough modulation to match it by AM tuning to RHC Spanish on 11840, 11760, 11860. This is not a mixing product, but an attempt to broadcast normally on scheduled 12000. The blob seems to peak about 12002, but no specific center carrier. Cf my previous unID, which was certainly this. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 410 kHz, April 23 at 0534 UT, ND beacon EGQ, which is 25 watts from Emmetsburg, Iowa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1926 monitoring: gone again from WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, Monday April 23 at 2330, instead Brother keeps Scaring // 5130v. I suppose WOR is the last left variation from all-BS-all-the-time on 9330, since Blalock was moved to 7490; so it`s hit-and-miss, whether anyop will break away for a semihour of WOR, which did occur again 24 hours earlier. WOR confirmed UT Tuesday April 24 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, good.

This week I plan to start WOR 1927 at its earliest possible time, unless some unforseen delay intervene:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7570, April 23 at 0521, WRMIBS is off this night, in keeping with scheduled closure at 0500 on new sked, despite running way past that the night before.

5985, April 23 at 0524, American English gospel huxter at S9 --- it`s WRMI, which per transmission skedgrid is airing only at 0330-0430 daily, but Mondays only like this, extended to 0600. There is no System A yellow program schedule below it to tell us who this is. HFCC as of April 11 does not account for the extension, but does show CRI in Arabic via Albania starting at 0500 daily, bit of which we can normally hear without WRMI.

9455 // 9955, Monday April 23 at 1348, WRMI in a new episode of `Viva Miami`, Jeff interviewing someone in English at a Ft Lauderdale event about the cruise industry around Japan. Jeff has quite a sideline(?) as a cruise promoter. Tuesday at this block it`s Famagusta instead.

7570 and 5950, April 24 at 0603 are both off now as scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, April 23 at 0521, WRNO is on with low modulation, altho was not on by 0100+. Must have started late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, April 23 at 0532, WWCR-1 is off, despite scheduling 0100-0900. And it`s not because of deleted BS either, variety of programming on the outdated program sked, as of March 1, still showing 6-hour difference between UT and CT. 4840 and 5935 are still on and audible despite degraded propagation. If on, 3215 should remain inbooming, best of all overnight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055.978, April 24 at 1241, JBA carrier. Could 4KZ Australia be off-frequency? Nothing on 5055.0 and this trace is about what I used to hear there. Also noticed yesterday but not logged or measured. Could be local device, but not here previously (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15054.5-USB, April 24 at 1313, big racket of background engine noise, on colloquial Spanish 2-way; first words recognized, ``puta madre``, en contacto with much weaker ``Juanito, cambio``. Still something there at 1353 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
