** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Oct 15 at 0003, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY is mighty weak this week, very poor, less than the S8 nearby lightning crashes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15520 // 17855, Sunday Oct 15 at 1404, REE is good with SBG, 17715 poor, and 21620 detectable JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 11518, Oct 15 at 1319, JBA carrier with flutter, presumed Voice of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN on signature split frequency. Today`s NDXC/Aoki agrees: 11518 is in use only at 1315-1330 in Chinese, 100 kW, 95 degrees from Dushanbe-Yangiyul (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 14 at 2118, WJHR is on and in with good signal, always the same gospel huxter preaching. Had not been able to hear it for some weeks, usually checking around alleged *1402, so has it been off or just not propagating? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: confirmed Saturday Oct 14 at 2130 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, fair. (Tuned in earlier so caught *2125:30 with The Planet ID and IS loop; tuned in later to measure: 9330.14v-CUSB at 0009 during Blalock the Blaster.) Also confirmed Sat Oct 14 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, poor. Next airing at 0200 UT Sunday Oct 15 on 11580: JBA carrier, too weak to confirm. Confirmed UT Sunday Oct 15 at 0337 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, S9+30, about 26 minutes in so started circa 0311. Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW [NEW time; or maybe #1900]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Oct 15 at 1322, Republic of Yemen Radio is S9=S5 with flutter, but better than most signals except Cuba on 25m, as numerous FE frequencies are really weak today. Drumming and chanting, 1326 militant talk and music; presumably from SAUDI ARABIA, and now arriving by relatively low-latitude longpath? Sunset in Sana`a is currently 1443 UT, in case they should pause for Qur`anic vespers any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 5025, Oct 14 at 0627, R. Rebelde is S9+30 of dead air. Will they ever get their act together? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 7365, Oct 14 at 0620, R. Martà is playing one of my favorite tunes, ``Patricia`` by PÃrez Prado, which I haven`t heard in a LONG time. Unfortunately, DJs start talking over before it`s finished, more QRM than the jamming. It was #1 in 1958y and thus belongs to pre-revolutionary Cuba. Also something about 2018y being the 325th anniversary of Habana. Here`s the first version of ``Patricia`` I found, which is considerably different than the hit:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0A6KCLO_54
And while we`re at it, another of his greatest hits, ``Mambo #5``:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKuvJ7zG9LI
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. 17840, Sat Oct 14 at 1342, VP carrier where normally there is nothing. HFCC reveals it`s DW, 500 kW, 65 degrees from ASCENSION at 1325-1530 Saturdays only during these datespans only: Aug 18-26, Sept 9-20, Oct 14-28. Must be some stupid ballgames the Germans think the Hausans will be keen to hear. Searching on odd time 1325, I find the other frequency: 15195 Issoudun (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Oct 14 at 0557, R. Truth is S9 to S9+10 and now modulating OK, English sign-off with address, to return at 5 am GT, 11 UT. Modulation may have been fixed already last night when I did not check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Oct 14 at 1220 UT a few minutes before sunrise here at 1238, low-band XEs from the north/west are in well on 550, 610, 640, 650, 660, 700, 710, 720, 730, 760, 770, 800, 870 â same stations I have logged many times before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [and non]. 5850 // 5890 // 7570 // 7780, Oct 14 at 0623, Brother Scare via WRMI, WWCR, WRMI and WRMI, with standard ID and plea for reception reports; also on 5980 WWCR mixture with jamming. God forbid I should listen to him much, but can`t say I have ever heard what is referred to in this news via Mike Cooper:

Which DXLD yg members have already read in full. Kai Ludwig replies:

``The video in question:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odpwJv0LGhM

[9+ minutes; various women from the congregation come forward to be embraced by BS; the very first one has her breast grabbed, and again at 8+ minutes. There is no sound except by the exposer --- gh]

When randomly checking the radio broadcasts I often heard recordings of these gatherings, apparently used rather extensively, besides the studio monologues. So it's in theory possible that Stair even brought audio of these disgusting appearances on air himself.

** SPAIN. 15520, Sat Oct 14 at 1345, REE open carrier already, S9 to S6; by 1355 the IS is playing now // 17855 also VG, but NO signal this time on 17715, while 21620 bears a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: since WOR did not appear at the new time still shown on WRMI skedgrid, Thursday 2230 on 5850, but instead the ``Friday`` program `Yeshua`, I check again Friday October 13 at the same time, in case they have been swapped? No, there is `Yeshua` again. No reply from Jeff White about what is really intended, so we can only hope that WOR will show up next Thursday.

WOR 1899 confirmed Fri Oct 13 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.02v-CUSB, fair.

Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW [NEW; or maybe #1900]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), Oct 14 from 0003, I listen to a bit on WBCQ webcast of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`. Says is also on 5130, but not yet 3265 (ex-3250), as Timtron has not ground a new crystal yet and is currently at home in Skowhegan. AW will have to meet him around Bangor to pick it up. John Carver`s fuller report on this episode will appear in due course in DXLD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17600-18200 approx., Oct 13 at 2005, strange noise field all across this range. Seems to peak at 17775 KVOH, the strongest signal on band by far. This should make a very interesting spectrum display on an SDR! The swishy noise is undulating, rising and falling at the rate of about 48 times per minute. It also peaks and falls as one scans the band, somewhat like CRT TVs used to do with horizontal scanning at 15.75 kHz intervals, but I can`t determine the separation now; too fuzzy.

This is the Thu/Fri extended broadcast which on Fridays is in English after 1900: now talking about Columbine 1999.

I can also hear the noise underneath the modulation on 17775 itself, and its huge signal of S9+40 peaks is also regularly fluxuating on the meter down to S9+20, which can hardly be attributed to propagation in this circumstance. I also hear the noise interfering with Spain on 17855, itself a very good signal. The 17775 carrier is also wobbling, as usually the case.

Everything points to KVOH as the source of this, but I want to be absolutely fair to them; after all, John Tayloe once accused me of ``making things up``, a tremendous insult to this journalist. Possibly it`s some external source, even a local device which I always have to consider.

Nominal sign-off is 2100, so just before that I`m back with two receivers: PL-880 on 17775, which hardly needs antenna extended to hear it; and NRD-545 on, pick a frequency, 17730, where the noise is clearly audible. At 2059:42* they both go off at exactly the same instant!

So now I am 100% (make that 1000%) certain that KVOH is the source of all this crap, a menace to the entire 16m band, and beyond! It`s beyond me how and why they can keep this POS transmitter on the air.

Note: I am not grinding an ax against KVOH in particular, despite their having canceled WORLD OF RADIO. But had they kept me on board and welcomed my input as an advisor, they might not have to read about their own problems first on a public forum. Like far too many other SW stations, they are self-destructive, and I am merely verifying and reporting the true situation.

One mitigating factor for KVOH: they have resisted the advances of Brother Stair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1010, Oct 14 at 1235 UT, Catholic talk in Spanish, into mass in English with voice-overs, just like // 5810 WEWN, but not synch, i.e. KTNZ Amarillo TX as we now know in its born-again format (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1030, Oct 14 at 0605 UT, open carrier overcomes most of the CCI when aiming N/S. Again strongly suspect it`s 50 kW ND daytimer KCTA Corpus Christi. WWJD? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055-USB, Oct 14 at 1241, 2-way in Spanish, voices raised as if they have a hard time hearing each other, mentioning ``MazatlÃn`` and ``305`` repeatedly; drug deals? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), Oct 14 from 0003, I listen to a bit on WBCQ webcast of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`. Says is also on 5130, but not yet 3265 (ex-3250), as Timtron has not ground a new crystal yet and is currently at home in Skowhegan. AW will have to meet him around Bangor to pick it up. John Carver`s fuller report on this episode will appear in due course in DXLD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17600-18200 approx., Oct 13 at 2005, strange noise field all across this range. Seems to peak at 17775 KVOH, the strongest signal on band by far. This should make a very interesting spectrum display on an SDR! The swishy noise is undulating, rising and falling at the rate of about 48 times per minute. It also peaks and falls as one scans the band, somewhat like CRT TVs used to do with horizontal scanning at 15.75 kHz intervals, but I can`t determine the separation now; too fuzzy.

This is the Thu/Fri extended broadcast which on Fridays is in English after 1900: now talking about Columbine 1999.

I can also hear the noise underneath the modulation on 17775 itself, and its huge signal of S9+40 peaks is also regularly fluxuating on the meter down to S9+20, which can hardly be attributed to propagation in this circumstance. I also hear the noise interfering with Spain on 17855, itself a very good signal. The 17775 carrier is also wobbling, as usually the case.

Everything points to KVOH as the source of this, but I want to be absolutely fair to them; after all, John Tayloe once accused me of ``making things up``, a tremendous insult to this journalist. Possibly it`s some external source, even a local device which I always have to consider.

Nominal sign-off is 2100, so just before that I`m back with two receivers: PL-880 on 17775, which hardly needs antenna extended to hear it; and NRD-545 on, pick a frequency, 17730, where the noise is clearly audible. At 2059:42* they both go off at exactly the same instant!

So now I am 100% (make that 1000%) certain that KVOH is the source of all this crap, a menace to the entire 16m band, and beyond! It`s beyond me how and why they can keep this POS transmitter on the air.

Note: I am not grinding an ax against KVOH in particular, despite their having canceled WORLD OF RADIO. But had they kept me on board and welcomed my input as an advisor, they might not have to read about their own problems first on a public forum. Like far too many other SW stations, they are self-destructive, and I am merely verifying and reporting the true situation.

One mitigating factor for KVOH: they have resisted the advances of Brother Stair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1010, Oct 14 at 1235 UT, Catholic talk in Spanish, into mass in English with voice-overs, just like // 5810 WEWN, but not synch, i.e. KTNZ Amarillo TX as we now know in its born-again format (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1030, Oct 14 at 0605 UT, open carrier overcomes most of the CCI when aiming N/S. Again strongly suspect it`s 50 kW ND daytimer KCTA Corpus Christi. WWJD? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055-USB, Oct 14 at 1241, 2-way in Spanish, voices raised as if they have a hard time hearing each other, mentioning ``MazatlÃn`` and ``305`` repeatedly; drug deals? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
