** CUBA. 6100, July 10 at 0602, RHC English is S9+40 and splashing out
to plus/minus 15 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 13740, July 11 at 0130, surprised that the BST-1 caradio
memory stops here at RHC Spanish. I think this frequency has been off
air evenings for a long time. It`s not in Aoki or EiBi, Aoki does not
even show the morning broadcast at 11-14. RHC`s own website
still shows the B-18 sked! When 13740 was for Buenos Aires at 22-05.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 7365 & 7335, July 11 at 0548, wall of noise jamming and
hardly a trace of Radios Martís; usually RM is way over jamming here,
but auroral conditions must be taking out Grimesland NC way up north

** CUBA. 6100, July 11 at 0550, RHC English is S9+30 but
undermodulated, and the carrier is cutting out rapidly and
irregularly. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6165 is S9 but JBM; 6000 is S9+10 and undermodulated; 5040 is
S9+20/30, good modulation except for some hum, but cuts off early at
0553*. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 15370.0, July 11 at 2222, RHC Spanish is S9 but JBM; at least
it`s not off-frequency today! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn

** MALI. 13640, July 11 at 2224, undermodulated weak S8-S9 talk,
presumably French as scheduled for sporadically active CRI Bamako
relay, and off at 2227* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1140, July 10 at 1255 UT, KRMP OKC with W&M talkshow, and
as I bandscan down, hear the same conversation a few seconds later on
1050, presumably KGTO Tulsa. Then they split for some different PSAs
and ads on 1050. Both are sloganned ``Heart & Soul`` apparently some
syndicated service, and so is the other 1050, KXCA Lawton, weaker and
further but which previously I have heard echoing against KGTO. By
1302 UT, 1140 & 1050 are // again but in music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1989 monitoring: missed confirming
the Wed July 10 at 2100 on WRMI & WBCQ, busy and tuned in a few
seconds too late at 2129! But at least on the portable PL-880, 9955

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 9330.00, July 9 at 2220, WLC Radio via WBCQ-6 toward the end
of its first UT day on air continues in Arabic, rather
strange-sounding compared to what we hear from genuine Arabs –
including mentions of Western names, and, Allah-forbid, never a bit of
Qur`aning! Much weaker signal during Arabic eastward compared to
English westward. Schedule we had from HFCC showed changing to English
at 2300, but there is no transmission break before then and indeed
after the ``IS``, looping slightly over one minute, heavy on the
dramatic cellos (could someone identify where this music came from?),
one more hour in Arabic after AW`s quick legal ID in English.

By 2354 has built up to only S8-S9; off at 2355* for antenna rotation,
back on at *2358:45 now S9+20 with IS; 0000 opening English, after YL
apocalyptic intro as via ``Montichello``, the two British guys
co-hosting with informal-sounding banter; one is Dave Wright, the
other Miles something. They don`t sound like they are looney tunes.
But starting with correct nomenclature advisory for deities, etc. At
0556 recheck, no signal at all, perhaps still on but not propagating.
Super-power cannot overcome uncooperative MUFs!

9330, July 10 at 2353, good but not super signal, off-mike Arabic
speech from echoey venue, distortion fades. 2356:25 change to IS and
WBCQ ID once,, off at 2357*, 2358:30 attempts to cut back on but off
again; finally back to stay at *2400:35, JIP bigsig English already in
progress as UT July 11 starts.

By 0553 recheck, down to a JBA carrier; 1326 rerecheck, no signal
detectable vs noise level of only S2. Others have now reported that it
went off just before 0800 when Arabic should have resumed, and further
reports find it missing from 9330 all day July 11. I check UTwente SDR
at 1818 and all I hear is OTH radar clicking(?). At 1820 on my own,
still no signal. By 2303 has finally come on with Arabic, poor
S9/S9+10. Finally at *2359:30 cuts on English bigsig again.

Meanwhile, HFCC as of July 11 shows quite a different 500 kW schedule
for WBCQ, still Arabic and English only, but times jumbled, and even
some new frequencies as yet unconfirmed; it`s backdated as from 24
May, obviously imaginary:

15180 07-10 Arabic 75 degrees
11705 10-12 Arabic 75 degrees
9330 12-16 English 255 degrees
9330 16-18 English 300 degrees
9330 18-20 English 57 degrees
9330 20-07 Arabic 75 degrees
what: languages are 12 hours displaced from original schedule: bet
someone mixedup am and pm! (gh)

** U S A. 5085, July 10 at 0603, WTWW-2 poor S8-S9 with flutter in
music, so is the Pete Santilli far-right talk show gone again?

Propagation is degraded: 5830 WTWW-1 and 5935 WWCR are JBA carriers at
0604 July 10, also displaying Doppler flutter. 4840 WWCR is slightly
better, merely poor, also with Doppler; while 3215 WWCR remains OK, VG
at S9+10. Lowest band holds up when highers do not.

24 hours later, July 11 at 0553, propagation is still disturbed: Now
5085 is a JBA carrier as well as 5830 and 5935; 4840 is S9+10/20 but
not solid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, July 11 at 1330, WEWN carrier is cutting off the air
quite accurately once per second. So we hear Spanish talk only in bits
when it`s on, but JBA at S7. By 1402 has become OK (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 1130, July 10 at 2258 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is still off
the air as it has been since at least May 3; have checked it maybe
once or twice a week since then. Its 250 watts daytime used to make it
just fine to Enid, despite direxional-north pattern. Now there is no
doubt whatsoever, since I am driving right by KLEY a few miles south
of Wellington, circa 60th street SE, on the east side of US 81. Now
all signage has been removed and no cars or indication of any
habitation. There are still two towers of different heights for its
ex-direxional day pattern; and about half a dozen big ugly dishes on
the south side of the small whitewashed building.

So I tune to 100.3 and there it is! With rock music and late 2302 UT
ID as ``KLEY 1130-AM and K262CQ 100.3 FM, Wellington``; plenty of
local ads, and 2304 UT, ``The Wave, 100.3 and 1130, from the Wheat
Capital of the World``, and some music by Prince. But, but, how can a
silent AM station have an FM translator??? Announcing 1130 does not
make it so, duh. And I`ve already explained how Enid is the Wheat
Capital, not little Wellington.

Perhaps FCC has not been notified? There is nothing at AM Query about
Facility 31895 being silent. At night it might as well be, with 0.001
kW power. Long live KWKH! (Glenn Hauser, KS, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9380+, July 11 at 1321, very poor RTTY; one peak seems
about 9380.9; maybe the same OC mystery previously on minus side of
9380 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, July 9 at 0606, RHC English with VG modulation, and
signal S9+20; while only // left, 6165, is incomparably worse, S8-S3
and undermodulated, unreadable. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, July 9 at 0602, VON is back here and big S9+10/20
in Hausa. Wolfgang Bueschel says this rotatable antenna is stuck aimed
toward North America, lucky us.

11769.9, July 9 at 2041, JBA carrier, signature off-frequency of VON,
presumably running until about 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING

** OKLAHOMA. RF 13-2, July 9 at 1616 UT, PBS World via KETA, during
Christiane Amanpour & Co., blasting interruption for EAS test ``as
required``, but before program audio resumes, we hear a minute of a
horribly modulated commercial for Capital One! The system is relaying
some station which is *not* doing the test, or maybe already finished
it (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, I have left a receiver on here most of the day July
8, the target date for World`s Last Chance to take over WBCQ-6, but
nothing heard except occasional traces of Brother Scare on the old
9330.1v transmitter.

Finally #6 cuts on abruptly at *2322 with AW`s quick canned ID, and
into praise? music in Spanish; more music with ID at 2335. Is this WLC
yet? Not quite.

WLC just started at 0000 UT July 9, British accents, not Egyptian.

It should not be necessary to cut the transmitter while the antenna is
being rotated (unlike other antenna switching), but there was a break
at 0355:20 to 0356:55 during their music span.

It`s pretty clearly not multilingual changing every hour as originally
planned and on the WLC website; yet, another group just posted that
schedule as if it were correct.

So far since 0000 it`s all been English, right? I did hear a minute or
two of openings and wonder if they are playing the same English hour
over and over? I have paid very little attention to their nonsense,
but they want to be sure we are prepared, for ``the end is near``!
They also make a big deal of the ``correct`` names for their god and

Observer has this which must have been about WLC, but did anyone ever
hear 9330 in Arabic any time in June? Maybe now we will find them
going from English to Arabic at 0800 and all the way to 2300? This
came out of HFCC.

``WBCQ-6 The Planet, Monticello, TEST in June 2019
0300-0700 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 280 deg to WNAm English
0700-0800 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 047 deg to WeEu English
0800-1500 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 060 deg to N/ME Arabic
1500-2300 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 090 deg to NoAf Arabic
2300-0300 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 255 deg to MEXI English``

Also, is 7490 now running 24 hours with BS at ``all unsold time`` as
AW promised? I really meant ``all-night`` except for the WWCR hours. I
would not expect any change there. Anyhow, 7490 WBCQ was not on late
at night with BS or anything, as of 0600, nor during the daytime when
it`s JBA if at all.

Assuming now 9330.00 be always 500 kW as WLC requires, signal weakens
greatly --- super-power cannot overcome propagation! By 0600 July 9, I
can tell it`s still 9300.00 but JBA! At 0625 up a little at S1-S5 to
tell it`s WLC English.

Probably did switch to Arabic at 0800; my next check at 1232 finds it
now in Arabic, S8-S3, nowhere near the signal we used to get during
tests aimed thisaway, so the rotating direxional antenna must be very
effective, i.e. not wasting signal off the back. After 1440 and
various daytime chex, it remains VP here in Arabic; at 2034, rating
only S3-S5, while nearest neighbor SW station 9265 WINB is slightly
better S4-S6, and no comparison to WWCR blasting on 9350 and 9980.
Maybe WBCQ-6 will blast again itself changing back to English thisaway
at 2300?

Meanwhile, Kai Ludwig in the WOR iog has found more interesting
background about World`s Last Chance and its founder:

``It appears that Galal Doss remained in Egypt not so completely
unnoticed as elsewhere:


And he not just calls the pope an antichrist, in 2005 he made a really
cute prophecy:

Someone with a bit more time to spend could also check if a first
impression is correct: That Doss could be a bad Antisemite. By the
way, it seems that Doss is a mere three years younger than Stair. Kai
Ludwig`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7570, July 9 at 2043, JBA carrier vs S9 local line noise
level, and no signals on 7730 or 7780. Must be WRMI: yes, websked
revised to show it with APS Radio, 14-23 UT Tuesday and Thursday only!
How odd. Aimed right at us 315 degrees, but useless in summer daytime.
Maybe makes it to Mississippi? 9455 is also on with VP signal and that
too is sked as APS, in this case M-F 2000-2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 5830 & 5935, July 9 at 0608, both Nashvillians WTWW and WWCR
are inaudible, so both off the air? How about lower? 4840 WWCR is
still S9+20/30 with BS and so is // 3215. Maybe a very sharp MUF
cutoff around 5 MHz? (Glenn Hauser, OK, D LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9470, July 9 at 1355, WEWN into ``Salve Regina``
with heavy CCI in Chinese, soon uncovered completely as WEWN is
finished with English until the afternoon. CNR1 jamming/RTI (Glenn

** U S A. 1210, July 9 at 0559 UT, tune in just in time to hear ToH
break, from ``Reality Radio`` to multi-AM/FM station ID including WJNL
and mention of Mackinaw City, as the 50 kW daytimer in Kingsley MI
continues its all-night cheating since first heard here June 24. At
first dominant, must have been during a KGYN fade which soon comes
back up during sportstalk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9379.577, July 9 at 1235, open carrier fading S4-S2, so
not a local device. Probably the same one Rick Barton, AZ reported as
