Logs
** BOLIVIA [and non]. 5935.0, Oct 12 at 2344, JBA carrier, and still at 2356 before WWCR blasts on, and not on 5936 as some reports have it as announced(?), presumed R. Yura. Much weaker than Brasil on 5939.8 with enough signal to hear some Brazuguese. And nothing in between.

This on the NRD-545, after first checking the R75 at 2334, when I was instead hearing a JBA carrier on 5936.306: but I must conclude this one was out of a local device, as this receiver is closer to them, such as VCRs, cable TV boxes, set-top boxes, computers, etc., whether they are turned ``on`` or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 7470, Oct 13 at 1315, Firedragon musical jamming, poor S9 with flutter. Don`t hear a target. NDXC/Aoki shows the only 7470 victim is RFA Tibetan via Kuwait at 2200-2257 Tuesdays only, yet there is ``CNR1`` jamming on 7470 daily at 1100-1400 against nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9420, Oct 13 at 1322, non-Greek music, heavy flutter. NDXC/Aoki shows two at same time: CNR-13 at 1058-1805, Uyghur, 100 kW, 298 degrees from Lingshi 725 site; AND CNR-6 at 1100-1605, Chinese, 100 kW, 163 degrees from Beijing 491 site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 11930, Oct 12 at 2349, gospel huxter in Spanish --- can it be R. Martà or something else new following on frequency? Way atop wall-of-noise jamming. Also heavy jamming on 6030, 7365, 7435, 9565 altho RM can be using only two frequencies at once! ``Sermon`` soon ends as it was apparently merely a poetic recitation on a religious theme from the Concurso Internacional de PoesÃa, in(?) Catalunya; R. Martà ID in passing; a live(?) special transmission from a venue at Universidad de Miami, hosts continue chatting as `Star Spangled Banner` starts playing in background, letra en inglÃs, by amateur choir, and off-key piano accompaniment.

Occasion is `El DÃa de la Raza`, i.e. when ColÃn started massacring natives, and also the day Cubans, gusanos or not, celebrate patron saint ``Virgen de la Caridad``, but never mind if they`re not Roman Catholic. 2352 followed by Cuban NA, a very different version than heard on RHC, again amateur choir and off-key piano. Can`t tell, but I wonder if the pre- and post-revolutionary Cubans utter the same lyrix to it? Finally I can barely tell under jamming that the other RM frequency still running is 9565. Those taking over at 0000 are 7365 and 6030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CZECHIA [non]. 5850, Oct 12 at 2354, R. Prague via WRMI, unusually with humbuzz on the audio, talking about Esperanto, but really about the ``dream of a pan-Slavic language``, so everyone from Czex to Russkies could understand each other better. Esperanto really doesn`t cut it, altho with some Slavic elements, too much Romance. Tsk2, Zamenhof the Pole (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Oct 12 at 2330, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, until autocutoff at 2331:47*, which is 48.5 seconds later than last catch a week ago, Oct 5 until 2330:58.5, slippage averaging 6.9 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. I was rather taken aback by Laura Trevelyan`s assertion on BBC World News America, 2100 UT Oct 12 airing via OETA OKLA, that the entire city of Santa Rosa, California, had burned down. Certainly it`s devastated, but *all* of it, really? (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7457-USB, Oct 13 at 1315, AF MARS net, headed by AFS4NC, much stronger than any stations replying, as he called Florida, then Alabama. NC probably implies he`s in North Carolina. Searching on call only leads to top hit here of several logs of this also on 7457 and also around this hour, by someone in Maryland, but no info about name or location:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: NOT confirmed Thursday Oct 12 at 2230 on WRMI 5850, as displayed on their program schedule: instead, ``Shalom`` and introducing the `Yeshua` show (must be one of those Messianic ``Christian Jew`` things) which is supposed to be on Friday at same time; a mistake? So will WOR appear on Fri at 2230, or Yeshua again? Only monitoring will tell. Perhaps the WOR file did not get uploaded to System H for this block.

WOR 1899 is confirmed Thu Oct 12 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.043v-CUSB, poor-fair. Next:
Fri 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 9955, Oct 12 at 2030, WRMI-4 reconfirmed today back to BS, no diverse programming here any more.

7780 // 9395 // 9455, Oct 13 at 1307, WRMIs with survivalist ad, 1309 resume `The Power Hour`, and also on 13845 WWCR which is 23 seconds ahead. At 1400 re-opening TPH on all four, from GCN network, and still at 1428; so yesterday`s Oldies music on the three WRMIs was an anomaly, perhaps default due to lost feed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 990, Oct 13 at 1251 UT, ad mentioning phones with ACs 785 and 846, loops ENE/WSW?, then ad for ``your hometown bank, Bank of Aurora``. Those clues should nail it, but there is no 846, and AC 785 is northern Kansas, where 990 is KRSL Russell, but no such bank there, and it`s to the north. DF and proximity lead to very likely KRMO Cassville MO, address in Monett, and also near Aurora in southwest MO; 2500/47 watts U1. Trouble is, I can`t find a bank by that exact name, e.g. consulting
http://www.usbanklocations.com/aurora-banks-mo.htm
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1510, Oct 13 at 1259 UT, PSA for Puerto Rico aid, dead air hole instead of ID from 10 seconds just before 1300 UT, and into ESPN Radio with `Mike & Mike`; loops NE/SW, surely KCTE Independence MO, despite failure to legally ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM. 7906-USB, Oct 13 at 1312, very poor YL in Vietnamese? Presumed Ho Chi Minh Radio Coast Station, as reported periodically by Ron Howard, last time being July 30 at *1305-1310*, so would it still be on at 1312, or turned over to a sibling station? His previous report was May 5 at *1305-1311*, and before that Jan 31 at *1305-1310*, always starting and ending with tones, which I did not hear; could not remember the always // frequency but tuned the 8200-8300 range without finding it; 8294-USB per Ron, who also says, ``Ho Chi Minh Radio is the most powerful coastal station, so is usually well heard. Operated by VISHIPEL (Vietnam Maritime Communications and Electronics LLC``. IIRC this also used to be heard in English, maybe only for urgent safety news (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9494.0-USB, Oct 13 at 1325, INTRUDERS, 2-way in colloquial Spanish, laughter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** GUATEMALA. 4055, Oct 12 at 0554, R. Truth, S9 signal but JBM, enough to perceive that it`s an hymn in English as usual during the final hour. Listen for normal modulation level to be restored shortly by visiting engineer Ralph Borthwick, who has also assisted other missionary stations in Perà (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES [non]. 11630, Oct 11 at 1427, open carrier at S3-S6, 1430 trumpet IS and music, 1431 sign-on in S Asian language, mentioning several MHz and meter-bands, and a website ending in asia.org. HFCC shows it`s R. Veritas Asia, 250 kW, 98 degrees via VATICAN, 1430-1457 in Urdu. Apparently RVA relies on better signal into Pakistan/Gulf this way than direct from Palauig (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: Not confirmed at the new time of Wed 2030 on WRMI 9955, instead back to BS on October 11. Apparently the hour carved out of BS 20-21 UT as I have been monitoring on 9955, but never published on skedgrid, has been deleted: no more R. Prague English at 2000, and no more variety including DX programs at 2030. This WOR broadcast was first monitored Sept 27 but may have started Sept 20.

WOR 1899 confirmed Wed Oct 11 at 2100 on WBCQ, 7490, fair. Also confirmed Wed Oct 11 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.00-CUSB, very poor. Next:

** U S A. 9955, Thu Oct 12 at 1345, WRMI finally with a new edition of `Viva Miami`, and since it`s in Spanish should be called ``Long Live Miami``? Jeff and ThaÃs are conversing about their visit to Cape Town, South Africa, for HFCC in August (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Oct 12 at 0544, WRMI just ending VOA news relay, back to Oldies; S9+20 and S9+10 respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455 // 9395 // 7780, Thu Oct 12 at 1427, surprised to find WRMI back to Oldies tunes instead of `The Power Hour`. WRMI skedgrid http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
altho ``updated Sept 28`` still shows `The Power Hour` at 13-15 UT on 7780, 9395, and 14-15 on 9455 (which were of course M-F only).

Then I check WWCR: no signal audible on 13845 altho there is a very poor one on 15825, so suspect 13845 is off the air. Huge signal on 7490 now at 1434 Oct 12 sounds like Power Hour, pushing gold & silver, especially in view of what is happening with the Girl Scouts (??? Boy Scouts co-opting them?). But WWCR pdf sked now dated October 1:
7490, M-F 9-10 am still misconverted as 15-16 UT:
``Power Talks w/ Beth & Melody in the Morning``
Power Talk was mentioned at 1448.

So it`s one of the Cedarstrom shows, not TPH. This means that TPH is not heard on any frequency at this hour. WWCR still shows `Power Hour`, Central time:
7490, M-F 7- 8 am, still misconverted as 13-14 UT;
13845, M-F 7-10 am, still misconverted as 13-16 UT [but no signal]

What`s really happening earlier on WRMI as above remains to be checked.

`Power Talks` and `Financial Survival` and any other show sponsored by gold & silver pushers to the gullible, Answer me this: if G&S are such an essential investment vs the imminent apocalypse, or at least government takeover of everything, why aren`t those who have such coins hoarding them, instead of trying to sell them in virtual transaxions, or at best, for worthless paper money? Or maybe sax & sax of cupro/nickel/zinc coins? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Oct 12 at 1420, NO signal at all from KVOH, not even on 17775.115v where heard yesterday. Maybe off for repairs following my reports? Or just not propagating. Cuba is making it on 17730, and weak Saudis on 17895, 17705, 17615, but those are to the east. K-index 5 at 1500 after G1 storms.

17775.019, Oct 12 at 1607 recheck, now it`s on and blasting in at S9+20/30, only 19 Hz off-frequency, wobbling slightly, overmodulated distortion discussing marijuana en las escuelas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Oct 12 at 1439, WTWW-1 is still on with PPPP instead of day frequency 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15454.88, Oct 12 at 1422, JBA carrier, much weaker than Biblis 5 kHz lower, which I measured Sept 26 at 15449.884. I`m still hearing it too with stronger signal, and the strange thing is, the higher one is at exactly the same offset/pitch with BFO step tuning to 15454.00, as to 15449.00. EiBi, NDXC/Aoki and HFCC all list nothing at all at this time on ``15455``. BTW, HFCC A-17 has not been updated since Sept 27; presumably concentrating on B-17 planning instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
