Logs
** BANGLADESH. 15505, Aug 10 at 1355, JBA carrier already on, presumed BB prior to 1400 Urdu. I strain to hear any audio by 1400, but just too weak for the IS; can almost imagine a timesignal circa 1359. Would those who hear it well (not via web receivers) please provide the precise time the pips end (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [non]. 6180, Aug 10 at 0045, nothing here; by 0130 a JJBBA carrier, surely CRI East Turkistan. I`m trying to confirm Anker Petersen`s reports of RNA on the air at this hour. What I am getting on 6180 is even weaker than the JBA carrier on the low side of 6025, i.e. Bolivia. Nothing on 11780 either, of course (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 6230, Aug 10 at 0608, very poor mixture of something in English and intermittent 2-way on this maritime comms channel â i.e., leapfrog mixing product of RHC 6060 over 6145 another 85 kHz above. 6230 is also the home of VMW Wiluna, the Western Australia marine weather station, but not until 1000 per EiBi; and Sound of Hope, Taiwan at many hours plus ChiCom jamming; and like every frequency above 6200, Europirates (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUAM. 9610, August 10 at 1216, ``Onward Christian Soldiers`` hymn in Korean by YL soprano with piano, more than one verse, S9-S9 with flutter; 1218 announcement in Korean by OM. So it`s KSDA as scheduled this hour at 330 degrees. Sure to heighten tensions around North Korea and make Guam even more of a nuclear target, hi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9945, Aug 10, 2017 at 1210 rapid CW; no sign of a DE or ID in the next few minutes. 9945 happens to be a frequency currently unoccupied by broadcasters and this may be why. Searching the UDXF io group on frequency gets ONE hit from 8.5 years ago when it was a yg:

``9945, 7CJ: Navy Belawan INDONESIA, 1420z CW Morse plain txt in Indonesian, QSA 1, 6.Feb (FN) 2/6/09``. Wouldn`t it be nice if VOI could achieve such a signal level on 9525v- (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, Aug 10 at 1201, RNZI back to poor signal, must really be on the 325 degree antenna only. This also means that except at 11-13 UT, all the AM frequencies are back to only 50 kW ourway instead of 100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 8880, Aug 10 at 1223, MyPillow ad, fading up and down like a real signal, but this is an R75 receiver overload mixture of 7490 WWCR plus local 1390 KCRC, unheard since they are currently transmitting dead air instead of stupid sports talk! Goes away if I switch to Preamp 1 or Preamp off. I also get 1390 + mixtures with other bigsigs on 7 MHz such as 7570, 7730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 15528, August 10 at 1357, JBA carrier, surely V of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN as scheduled 1230-1300 & 1330-1400 in EiBi; and an equally weak JBAC on 15525, the ChiCom jammer, which I was getting 25 hours ago in Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1890 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 9 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490v-AM, very poor S5 to S3. Also confirmed Wed Aug 9 after 2330 on WBCQ 9331.487v-CUSB, fair (at this time I also measure 7489.917 during `Radio Alexandria`; usually it`s been on the plus side). Next:

** U S A. 9455, Wed Aug 9 at 2000, WRMI-5 cuts off Biermann canned ID before it finishes to join `Creciendo en Gracia` already in progress as on // WRMI-9 11580. It would be more alliterative in English, `Growing in Grace`. This hour only has 9455 // 11580, whatever the programming. At 21-22, 9455 duplicates 15770 instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, August 10 at 0042 check, WTWW-1 modulation is *still* totally broken up; see previous report. Includes brief bits of dead air. And WTWW-2 is already on 5085 with open carrier prior to 0100 ham show. By 0611 UT Aug 9, night frequency 5830 is back in whack, i.e. merely abnormal, suptorted but PPPP readable with some hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** AUSTRALIA. 9685, Wed August 9 at 1233, same OM is alternately speaking English with heavy accent and some other language, rising intonations at ends of words or phrases, Burmesish? Sermon or Bible translating, S9. It`s Reach Beyond, Australia. At 1242 says ``Amen``; 1243 Englishish schedule closing as Wed & Sat 5:45 pm IST, 6:45 pm BST = start time of 1215 UT. Then RBA full Oz English sign-off until tomorrow at 1115 UT, and off 1245*.

Aoki list, usually updated daily, still shows July 28 as latest, so I guess he`s on vacation: http://ndxc.16mb.com/bi/nxa17.txt
It shows 9685 is 100 kW, 315 degrees from Kununurra daily at 1115-1245 in a complex schedule of Burmese, English and five other languages, this one being: 1215-1245 1..4..7 Nagamese [sic], i.e. also on Sundays.

Via our Hitlist, we quickly reach RBA`s own A17 schedule:
http://www.reachbeyond.org.au/site/DefaultSite/filesystem/documents/publications/A17%20Schedule_Listener%20Edition.pdf
showing this sesquihour block is for Myanmar and northeast India, and the three transmissions in question are called ``From Darkness to Light`` in ``nag`` = Nagamese, yes, not Naganese. EiBi`s language list shows ``NAP Naga Pidgin / Bodo / Nagamese: India-Nagaland (30,000) [nag]``. Nagaland is already 90% Christian making it the state religion, and more Baptist than Mississippi, per Wikipedia. Capital Kohima, where AIR used to be on 4850 & 6065, gone for about a sesquiyear; nearest somewhat active AIR is 5050 Aizawl (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 15525, Aug 9 at 1251, S5-S3 Chinese from CNR1 like 11825, whose only reason to be here is to jam Voice of Tibet on 15527, per Aoki at 1236-1305 via Tajikistan, but no trace of that audible, not even a het. Not much else from Asia on 19m band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 12843-CW, Aug 9 at 1256, CQ marker from HLO, which is Seoul Radio. Not many of these left. Kept fading during the ID, but repetition soon allowed full copy. Not in EiBi (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, August 9 at 1220, RNZI is S9 to S7, not as solid as usual, so maybe the 325-azimuth antenna is back in service during the 11-13 bihour only when the 35 is off instead of both? Meanwhile, Barry Hartley answers my latest question:

``So during the 325 degree antenna downtime, are all the frequencies on the 35 antenna getting the full 100 kW instead of just 50, improving reception thisaway overall?``

``Hi Glenn, Yes, the 35 degrees antenna is receiving the full 100 kW. That should provide good reception in North America`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140, August 9 at 1421, Radio Sultanate (note spelling) of Oman with Arabic music and 1427 Arabic talk. RSO has attracted a lot of attention further east by jumbling its English and Arabic times. This hour was originally English, but lately has been an hour later and sometimes prolonged for hours and hours after that. Signal has been barely audible here most of time, but now S6 fading to S2. Recheck at 1735: Arabic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1890 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 9 after 1315 on WRMI 9955, fair. Next:

** U S A. 5830, August 9 at 1218, WTWW-1 modulation is breaking up badly. 9475, August 9 at 1424, S9+40 but severe modulation breakup. So Ted was awake enough to make the QSY, but not enough to notice there was a bit of a problem with the mod. STILL that way at 1735. That`s OK: reduces the listenership for SFAW racist programming from insignificant to nil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1370, August 9 at 1158 UT, ad for Coyote Tractors on highway 290, 1159 ID as Fox 1370, but 1200 UT into CBS News bong. This doesn`t quite compute, so my research finds: Google is smart enough to correct Coyote to Kioti! US 290 connects San Antonio to Austin to Houston TX. The only 1370 along this route is KJCE Rollingwood = Austin market, and it`s Talk 1370, not Fox 1370. Wikipedia and NRC AM Log of last year confirms it carries CBS news; and the find-a-Kioti-dealer website goes to this: Paige Tractors, 4409 Highway 290 East, Paige, TX, 78659, Distance: 46 miles from KJCE`s Austin zipdcode of 78746. Wiki also informs that call derives from a previous branding ``K-Juice``. It`s 5/0.5 kW U4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 91.7, August 9 at 1354, KOSU with NPR Morning Edition report about a girls` metal band in Indonesia, what a thing, but detracted by correspondent Ashley Westerman saying their native language is ``Sudanese``, rather than Sundanese (it`s a long way from Sudan), duh! Here`s the story with transcript
http://www.npr.org/2017/08/09/542238928/meet-voice-of-baceprot-the-all-girl-metal-band-making-waves-in-indonesia
which correctly spells Sundanese in first graf (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9780.23-USB, August 9 at 0611, 2-way INTRUDERS very poor in tonal language, Chinese? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CHINA. 15570, Aug 8 at 2315, very poor in Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jammer, typical pushy programming, probably propaganda, against VOA Mandarin via Tinian, this hour only per Aoki. Nothing else extra-continental audible on 19mb (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. A festival of `frogs on the 25m band tnx to RHC`s piling up high-power transmitters here, Aug 8 at 2307-2320 as I unravel these leapfrog mixing products:

11810, noted first with Spanish // 6000, the `Mesa Redonda` TV simulcast which this hour only is separate from the other RHC Spanish frequencies. 11810 is S5-S2 and quite readable, mixing with English underneath, i.e. 11950, the other M.R. channel, leaping over 11880 another 70 kHz lower. 11950 is S9+40, 11880 is S9+45 and somewhat distorted. Subject of M.R. is climate change, loss of species. 11810 is quite stronger than the 11840 parasites on 11830 & 11850.

12000, has a very poor weak mix of two programs. It might have been 2 x 6000 but not in this case, rather 11760 Spanish leaping over 11880 English another 120 kHz beyond. I should have checked for the reverse on 11640.

12019.95, at 2318 mainly English audio S3-S1 from 11880, leaping over 11950 to 70 kHz beyond, or almost. 11950 is axually a bit on the low side about 11949.97. There`s always something wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 7750, August 8 at 2158, JBA carrier, tnx to tip from Wolfgang BÃschel that today AIR Bengaluru punched the wrong frequency, instead of 7550 for the GOS, first caught by Patrick Robich, Austria (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 6224-USB, August 8 at 0603, marine weather in English, very poor, mostly numbers copiable, knots, barometer. It`s ZLM, Taupo Maritime Radio, in between scheduled broadcasts per EiBi, at 0533-0553 & 0803-0823. Last logged this in December of 2015 with similar observations when I also added: ``Taupo is in the middle of North Island, at the NE corner of lake of same name, as far from a coast as you can get, but at a good skip distance, and not far from RNZI`s Rangitaiki site, I think`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, August 8 at 2300, pirate with rap at S8, and annoying screaming over background music past 2303. These logs, with the wrong date on thread header as Aug 9 instead of really Aug 8
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,36596.0.html
say it was Clever Name Radio intermittently between 2152 and 0017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1889 monitoring: last repeat of this edition reported by Rick Barton, AZ: ``7730 UNITED STATES WRMI at 0030. Confirming GH`s W o R on the channel with armchair reception. August 8 most with R.S. SW-2000629 or Grundig Satellit 750 and indoor antennas``

WORLD OF RADIO 1890 contents: Australia, Biafra non, Bougainville, Bulgaria, Canal Zone, China, Cuba, Eritrea, Fiji, Germany, Guam, India, Indonesia, Isle of Man, Korea South, Kuwait, New Zealand, North America, Oman, Papua New Guinea, PerÃ, Spain, USA, Yemen non

WORLD OF RADIO 1890 monitoring: first airing less than an hour after completed, confirmed Tuesday August 8 at 2130 on WRMI, fair on 9455, very poor on 15770. Also confirmed Tue Aug 8, the 2330 on WBCQ, now drifted up to 9331.526v-CUSB, fair at 2353, just as I am mentioning the shift. Next:

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Aug 8 at 2258, both with WRMI Oldies, except at this moment wrapping up a VOA newscast relay insert.

7570 & 7730, Aug 8 at 2304, no signals from WRMIBS, but weakest 7780 is on. As I listen, 7730 at least cuts on about *2304:40, still no 7570. 7570 & 7730 are scheduled to start at 2300, 7780 from 2200. Currently none of them are switching immediately from a higher frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6180, August 8 at 0636, very weak signal from algo, which at 0607 would have been VOA French via SÃo TomÃ, but supposed to end at 0630 weekdays. Anker Petersen, Denmark, has twice reported RN AmazÃnia recently on 6180 around 0130 with no interference from CRI in English via Kashgar, which is all I`ve heard that early. So is RNA on, perhaps with low power and/or sporadically? No, 6180 does not work out to be a possible Cuban leapfrog on 49m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7520-USB, August 8 at 2305, 2-way in Spanish before becomes occupied by WWCR at 0000 or India at 0015, and after RFA Tibetan via Kuwait uses it twice a week until 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
