Logs
** CUBA. 6000, April 16 at 0539, RHC English is suptorted just before
0600* turnoff, which seems to be intentional from this frequency/site
only. English continues on best 6060 with This Day In History,
concerning Bay of Pigs, Fidel speech declaring the Revolution is
socialist (-- gotcha!) and the founding of RHC in 1961y; also good
signal and modulation this time on 6100, slightly worse on 6165.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, April 16 at 1333, RHC is dead air here, but nominal on
15230. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 341 kHz, April 16 at 1315 UT check, beacon EI is on, our
very own in Enid. Some time ago I DXed two faraway beacons at night on
341 without any sign of EI, which despite proximity is quite weak, but
must have been off; not NSP? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1390, April 16 around 1830 UT, as I drive around north
side of Enid, it`s clear that the reactivated KCRC has an expanded
radius of desensitization as far as my caradio is concerned. Now I
can`t hear 1410 KGSO Wichita --- not that I should ever want to with
stupid ESPN sports talk! This close to KCRC`s 3 towers, desens extends
further but hard to evaluate its edges. This suggests that present
transmitter is running more than 1 kW and/or is broaderband. Still no
spurs on 1420 or 1360 but those OK & KS stations also inaudible; plus
the splatter out of 1390. Even at my home QTH further away, 1410 is
just starting to break thru, unlike with the old KCRC transmitter
(Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 16, April 15 at 1535 UT, KOCM-DT has now been repacked
here, ex RF 46, and still PSIP as 46-1 (and no other subs). Must have
just happened today or very recently. On 46 this had been a somewhat
marginal signal from the far side of OKC, but a little better on 16.
So now we have nothing but gospel huxters on 15-16-17 (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1977 monitoring: confirmed Monday
April 15 from 1817 on IRRS via Romania, 7290, via UTwente SDR good and
not too much splatter from 7280/7300. This week at 1813 tune-in there
is a tone, 1814 JIP tail end of Feature Story News, 1815 two minutes
of IRRS` ``Triumphal March from AÃda`` theme, before WOR finally
starts at 1817, so presumably running almost until 1846.

Also confirmed UT Tue Apr 16 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, F-G. Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
0130 UT Saturday WRMI 7780 [NEW; or 1978?]

[it appears we will now be running on a Saturday-to-Friday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends. Or maybe I can get 1978 done by
Thursday evening?]

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

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730, April 16 at 0000, WRMI switches from TOMBS to
synthetic Bible readings in Spanish, instead of Wavescan. And at 0030
Wavescan replacing WORLD OF RADIO, as first noted last week. Skedgrid
via http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs has been partially updated again
dated April 13 now explaining this: it`s Alameda Bible Fellowship,
which has been inserted in many new spots on several frequencies,
thrice weekly, mostly M/W/F, or in this case on 7730 at 0000, UT
Tue/Thu/Sat, which also displaced WOR on Thursday. And also 2030
Tuesday on 7780, in this case Mon/Tue/Fri. The Program page has no
portion about ABF, but as I recall, they have podcasts of Bible
readings in many languages. The one at 0000 April 16 had to be
interrupted abruptly before 0030 for WS, so apparently not packaged as
29-minute SW programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, John Carver fills out his report on AWWW 4-6-19 on
WBCQ: ``Tonight's show started more or less on time after a brief
period of dead air. Allan and Angela in the studio in FLA stating that
they are analog in a digital world. Talking about GFI plugs and
receptacles. Says they're all Chinese junk. Then talk about buying and
selling antique cars and how the bottom has dropped out of the market.
Talk of problems with the rebuild of his most recent old car. Auto
talk continues for most of the program.

Allan said that 3265 service would continue but this summer he will be
changing both transmitter and antenna. Reading of emails began at 0051
and the feed to Maine dropped, followed quickly by the station playing
some music fill. Feed restored in a minute or so. Reading of the Free
Radio Weekly. No closing prayer and program was off at 0100 followed
by some music. 7490 was off the air at 0102. John, Mid-North Indiana``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, April 16 at 0603, WWCR open carrier is on at S9+20 =
to 5935 modulating DGS. 4840 is also S9+20/30 of dead air, allowing
the adjacent bonker about 4843 to audiblize. Normally off, 3215 is
also emiting OC/DA at S9+10/20. I am beginning to see a pattern here:
Tuesdays --- same kind of thing I have logged before on April 2,
January 29, January 22, December 25; plus once on Thursday February
28.

Ethan Best, KC9YDN, also reports today April 16 to the WOR iog:
``Early this morning (6:30z) tuning across the bands I noted 3/4 of
WWCR's services are dead air. 3215, 4840, 5890. Only one with
modulation is PMS on 5935 kHz. Somethings always wrong at WWCR?``

Logs
** CUBA. 6100 & 6000, April 15 at 0541, RHC English just barely
modulated on these, slightly more on 6165, and good modulation on 6060
only. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 15 at 1406, VP signal with music, RHC running
late here, checked // 13740 just in time at 1407 before it dumps to
dead air and off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230 & 15140, April 15 at 1411, both RHC are open
carrier/dead air about S9. Usually one of them is funxional.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, April 15 at 0542, something here with music, presumably
ORTM turning on again earlier than 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. More on 1390 KCRC Enid: in original report I did not make
clear that it was totally off the air from 2030 UT April 13, rather
than open carrier like its related FM stations.

Shortly after filing that report, I find 1390 finally back on by 19 UT
April 14, after some 22.5 hours of silence; could it be they were
working on getting rid of the spurs? Ha! I am no longer hearing them
at 2235 UT, 1360 clear for KPHN El Dorado KS with EWTN, and 1420 for
KTJS Hobart OK, except now there is expanded splatter from 1390 even
beyond that +/- 30 kHz range. Rather I think KCRC had to switch to a
backup transmitter with different deficiencies.

April 15 at 1412 UT check, still no spurs circa 1360 & 1420, but the
splatter continues, obscuring 1410 Wichita which never suffered this
KCRC problem before (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1977 monitoring: confirmed Sunday April 14 at
2130 on WRMI 7780, poor.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 15 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+20.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 15 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair

Also confirmed UT Monday April 15 starting at 0301 on Area 51 webcast;
WBCQ 5130.42 checked earlier at 0238 was good S9/S9+10

Also confirmed UT Monday April 15 at 0330 on WRMI webcast --- this
time not interrupting ``Hallelujah`` but some other fill music out of
Radio Prague relay; 9955 checked at 0358 was only S2, JBA. Next:

1815 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania [ex-1800]
0030 UT Tuesday WRMI 7730 [canceled?]
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780
0800 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [2 editions]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), John Carver, IN, updates us April 15 on news from
the last two `Allan Weiner Worldwides` on WBCQ, Saturdays 00-01:

``Glenn, two episodes ago Allen said that 3265 would continue through
the summer, but once he was back in Maine, the antenna would be
changed and possibly the transmitter.

In the most recent program, he stated that the super station would be
energized this week for testing. They will be testing primarily on
9330 and some testing on 7490.

He will post detail on his twitter account. He will be in Florida at
least until the end of the month.

He has developed some health problems, and is seeing several doctors
to try and remedy the situation. He is having heart problems,
primarily a-fib. He doesn't believe it is terribly serious at the
moment. He said, that if he has to have a pace-maker installed, they
will have to put in some special shielding because of the RF energy at
the station. -John``

Now what is his Twit? NO link to it on the homepage
http://www.WBCQ.com --- The obvious guess, https://twitter.com/WBCQ is
axually Dr Scott Becker, not Allan. /weiner is an outdated 2015 Trump
for President troll. Finally found him:
https://twitter.com/allanwbcq?lang=en
A new photo with each post, and political propaganda (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+, UT Monday April 15 at 0000-0100, `Encore` classical
music show on WBCQ comes off without a hitch this week. I enjoy
listening to the first half on webcast for convenience at the
computer, and second half axually via 7490 with a good signal (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, April 15 at 0538, WRNO back on after missing a few
nights whenever I checked, S9/S9+20 gospel huxter in English (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, April 15 at 1409 and still 1445, WWCR-1 is S9+20/30
instead of JBA carrier, a sure sign that springtime HF sporadic E is
in play making this one-megameter path propagate; confirmed by 10m Es
DXmap which does show a few contacts across this area. 15555-USB WJHR
is also showing up weakly. And at 1415, 12050 WEWN is S7-S9, much
better than usual with an Es boost too. Still not a peep out of 17775
KVOH from the west this early (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
