NIGERIA. 7254.923, Feb 18 at 0610, Voice of Nigeria in Hausa, as usual.
No further signs of // 9690- as I heard once lately, at least
after 0700 in French.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Yes, heard VoNIgeria in French today Febr 19 from 0700 UT,
noted on remote SDR unit across the Atlantic Ocean
via central Florida-US post.

7254.920 VoNigeria, drums music and woman shrill chorus performance,
from West Africa around 0658-0659 UT too.
S=6 or -86dBm signal strength.

But spill-over overflowing into the other channel area -
like high pitch
from Sunday program of Vatican Radio on 7250 kHz adjacent,
at 0657 UT on Febr 19, latter as S=9+20dB signal during
Latin mass liturgy language prayer from Santa Maria di Galeria SMG.


U S A. 5129.83-AM, UT Sat Feb 18 at 0129, WBCQ // 7490, but 5129.83 is
axually better by 0142, despite considerable storm noise; the only
Blitzortung around North America is off the coast of Louisiana. Allan
Weiner Worldwide and Timtron are discussing what an impressive facility
the other SW station in Maine was, WCSN. This sounds familiar, a repeat
from months ago? Someone says it was sold to Adventist World Radio --- no,
it went to Voice of Historic Adventism, WVHA for a while, a splinter sect
who would not appreciate being confused with mainstream Adventists.
(Whatever happened to them after they got out of the SW biz? I think the
single 500 kW transmitter in Maine wound up with WHRI after LeSEA took
over the WSHB site in South Carolina.)
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)


5129.840 WBCQ with relay of Brother Stair TOM sermon,
at 0604 UT S=9 signal in Detroit-MI remote SDR unit.
S=6 or-93dBm rather tiny in central Florida remote SDR,
at 0632 UT on Febr 19.


9330.00, meanwhile at 0134 check, the other WBCQ is close to on-frequency!
with Blalock the blaster. It was probably on OK for WOR at 0030.

9329.82v-CUSB, Feb 18 at 2157, Brother Scare in expanded WBCQ relay
schedule, 2159 cut to WBCQ ID and promo, 2200 to test broadcast from Radio
Mi Amigo International as publicized for this date and frequency. Sounds
like same opening disco tune as last week on 7490 but this one mentions
being on 9330 and requesting reports. Frequency is drifting up and down,
e.g. 9329.83 shortly; 9329.85 at 2243, mentioning oldies from the 70s. S9
to S7.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)


9329.782 WBCQ at 0707 UT, unstable fq, wanders up and down 10 - 12 Hertz,
S=9 sermon signal heard in central Florida-US remote SDR installation.



This report dispatched at 0332 UT February 19
_ Hard-Core-DX mailing list


btw. the both intermodulation signals of Bauta Cuba
originate of fundamentals 5025 and 5040 kHz,
occured on slightly odd signals on
5010.007 and 5054.998 kHz at 0600 - 0610 UT Febr 19.
S=5 or -88dBm signal strength observed on remote SDR unit in
Detroit-Michigan US.
5010v signal was seemingly stronger modulation ... and better to understand.


COLOMBIA excellent on 5910.166 kHz at 0618 UT Febr 19.
S=8 -76dBm in Detroit Michigan remote SDR unit,
S=9+10dB powerful in central Florida post.
20 kHz widespread signal in Florida unit !
Never seen before on that channel.
Great flute and harp, and Latin American singer music.

Also 6010 kHz both heard,
likely Brazilian tiny S=4 on 6010.038 kHz,
but stronger S=7 Colombian Latin AM mx signal on 6010.145 kHz
at 0645 UT heard in central Florida US.


CUBA only heard 5025 and 5040 in 60 mb, and RHC English 6000 and
6100 kHz in 49 mb at 0650 UT Febr 19.
Nothing of RHC noted on 6060 nor 6165 kHz.


CODAR scratches heard in 4499 - 4552, 4735 - 4792 kHz range at 0629 UT.


USA 5850 Thrilled me, heard via WRMI Okeechobee an Ukrainian/Russian ?
lang program at, talked about "Radio Sputnik" ID at 0638 UT. S=9+10dB signal
heard in central Florida-US. Mentioned a lot of FM radio station talk,
about Ukrainske Radio and Media.

nothing visible yet in detail on the shaded blue RMI schedule, System 'D'

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nEVwCMB9RSKowLzLXamyayVpCzjmPAw_SB1r3YOdzQc/edit?pref=2&pli=1#gid=0


CANADA/AUSTRIA 6159.972 CKZN St. Johns observed on remote
SDR FL-US station at 0653 UT, S=9 signal strength on Florida
east coast SDR. But reception suffer on lower flank, as a strong spill over
overflowing into the channel area of

6155even ORF1 Vienna radio program via ORS Moosbrunn broadcast center site,
S=9+10dB heard in FL-US remote post.
ORF1 program in progress at 0650-0655 UT on Febr 19 with a report on
pilgrims visit to Palestine. Social help from Austria towards poor
people living in Bethlehem and Nazareth.


UAE the 4th Babcock TX unit at Al Dhabbaya-UAE always odd frequency,
noted at 0729 UT on Febr 19 here in Europe:

17640.132 kHz measured when BBC English progr heard, an interview report on
"British Design and Technology Museum" at London.
S=9+20dB signal, easy armchair listening.

SOUTH AFRICA 15399.978 also slightly odd frequency, S=8-9 signal.
BBC En from SenTec site at Meyerton-AFS/RSA, at 0735 UT on Febr 19.

17760 Nothing heard today Sunday only South African amateur radio program
of SARL, via SenTec Meyerton, 08-09 UT at 0845 UT.
They close often earlier.
Maybe finnished the px already at this time ?

Logs
** BRAZIL [non]. 11780, Feb 18 at 0142 check, RNA/RNB is still off.

6180, the other RNA/RNB frequency, Feb 18 at 0152 has algo on it other than Brasil, about S6, presumably CRI English southward via Kashgar at 00-02 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 7380.3, Feb 18 at 0148, carrier open averaging S6. This could be something interesting. Then searching my archive on that off-frequency I get ONE hit, from 11 years ago:

``Freqs changes for VOIROI / IRIB:
1930-1957 Italian NF 5910.0 (55544), ex 6100.0
1930-1957 Italian NF 7380.3 (55454), ex 7355.3
(R BULGARIA DX MIX News, Ivo Ivanov, via wwdxc BC-DX June 28 [2006] via RusDX)``

In current Aoki we have this starting less than half a sesquihour later:
7380 VO ISLAMIC REP.IRAN 0230-0530 1234567 Arabic "Al-Quds TV" 500 289 Zahedan

One other less likely possibility listed on 7380(.0) is AIR Chennai starting at 0300 with 50 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [and non]. 13650, Feb 17 at 2259, NHK IS prior to Thai direct from Yamata, under big open carrier from CUBA about to start Portuguese. On the BST-1 caradio whose memory scan would not have stopped here without the Cuban carrier. I had this frequency programmed from a previous season when Iran was on it in English to North America, nevermore (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 11868 & 11351, Feb 18 at 2155, seem to be some blobs here which soon disappear along with 11610, MWV Chinese until 2156*. Dave Valko had been hearing such spurs, but I tuned in too late to investigate them here today. How about after 2200 from another fundamental? Checked 9535 and found RHC Spanish with weak Chinese QRM. If same ~258 kHz separation, would land on 9277 and 9793. More likely would be from 11770 Arabic, circa 11512 & 12028, so look for those henceforth (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17720, Feb 18 at 1716, S9 in Swahili. That`s AWR via Talata at 1700-1728 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.923, Feb 18 at 0610, Voice of Nigeria in Hausa, as usual. No further signs of // 9690- as I heard once lately, at least after 0700 in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.927, Feb 18 at 2248, VP S4 carrier, presumably a pirate. One guess here is Liquid Radio on 6924.95, as early as 2018 and as late as 2325:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php?topic=32955.0
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 90.1, Sat Feb 18 at 1949 UT on caradio, open carrier/dead air. Still so quite a few minutes later. Apparently KUCO, which would be running Metropolitan Opera at this time. Occasional bits of the Met come thru the OC, from KHCC, also a Met carrier. KHCC, Hutchinson, Radio Kansas is always a CCI problem depending on tropo enhancement, antenna orientation, but KUCO normally stronger, i.e. the one with dead air. Earlier today KHCC was bothering KUCO more than usual, altho nothing special was showing on the tropo maps (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, Feb 18 at 1950 UT, open carrier/dead air from KAMG-LP Enid, not to be outdone by KUCO. But this could go on for days, judging from previous unattended behavior. It a Spanish gospel huxter satellator when funxional, not exactly a locally programmed station as originally envisioned (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Feb 18 at 1711, 1935 chex, no sign of WWRB with Radio Munansi clandestine. Neighbor WWCR managed a VP 15825 carrier at 1711. Is Munansi gone for good? Also look for it Sunday sometime between 16 and 22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7435-USB, Sat Feb 18 at 1728, MARS net at midday, 8TX1, with full call AFA8KX, 1729 says the net is now free without NCS supervision, secure at will, full callsigns are required. Notable that at night this is a Radio Martà broadcast frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1865 monitoring: confirmed Friday February 17 at 2230 on WRMI 11580, 6855 and 5950. Yes, 6855 is back on and not 6870 as I was hypothesizing earlier. Missed checking next airing, UT Sat 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB. Confirmed by Ivo in Bulgaria, 0630 UT Sat Feb 18 on HLR 6190-CUSB. I try to confirm Sat 1530 on HLR 7265, but once again via UTwente SDR can hear only two other stations mixing, one of them with S Asian music, CRI Hindi via Kashgar. I now think the understation is CNR2 from Baoji site, listed in Aoki until 1605. Recheck at the end, still no WOR/HLR audible, *1601 everything blotted by huge CRI Russian. WOR 1865 also confirmed Sat Feb 18 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.84v-CUSB, good. Next:
Sun 0410v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to SW
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW

Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.83-AM, UT Sat Feb 18 at 0129, WBCQ // 7490, but 5129.83 is axually better by 0142, despite considerable storm noise; the only Blitzortung around North America is off the coast of Louisiana. Allan Weiner Worldwide and Timtron are discussing what an impressive facility the other SW station in Maine was, WCSN. This sounds familiar, a repeat from months ago?

9330.00, meanwhile at 0134 check, the other WBCQ is close to on-frequency! with Blalock the blaster. It was probably on OK for WOR at 0030.

9329.82v-CUSB, Feb 18 at 2157, Brother Scare in expanded WBCQ relay schedule, 2159 cut to WBCQ ID and promo, 2200 to test broadcast from Radio Mi Amigo International as publicized for this date and frequency. Sounds like same opening disco tune as last week on 7490 but this one mentions being on 9330 and requesting reports. Frequency is drifting up and down, e.g. 9329.83 shortly; 9329.85 at 2243, mentioning oldies from the 70s. S9 to S7.

7490.13, Sat Feb 18 at 2238, this WBCQ is also on an hour early with different rock music than Amigo on 9330v --- British DJ with oldies from the 60s, Beatles `Hold Your Hand`. Sounds like the guy heard exactly one week ago, so Atlantic Oldies 2NG, here to stay at 22-23 Sats? Anyway per http://2ngradio.com/ he is scheduled again for this Sat Feb 18 and also two hours later UT Sun Feb 19 at 0000 on 9330, unchecked.

Meanwhile the WBCQ combined program schedule http://schedule.wbcq.com/ still does not show any of these recent changes, nor even the greatly expanded Brother Scare hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Sat Feb 18 at 2330, this WRMI is starting yet another replay of the DSWCI tribute special (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Sat Feb 18 at 1725, WTWW-1 night frequency is on at midday! And not on 9475 where first noticed silence. Usual SFAW stuff, and surprisingly good signal S9+20, so this close, 9 MHz not really needed. Almost the OSOB on 49m at this time, just a trace of 6070 CFRX. Before 1900, 9475 is back on.

After 1900, WTWW-2 on 9930 with `Theater Organ from the Ozarx`, continuous organ/piano concert until 1933, over to `Amateur Radio Newsline`. An hour earlier, another good music program despite the title, `Talking Machine Show` was heard on WWCR 12160 until 1830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

faded badly, almost complete f/out, but came back up at 1027. Pgm
finally ended at 1043 w/outro, studio M anncr giving TC twice, then into
lively LA tropical mx. Went off the air suddenly in mid-song at
1111:30. (Valko 17 Feb.)

5875 THAILAND R.T. End of VT pgm at 1114. Usual bells IS,
M in EG w/ID and lang. pgm anmnt, and several more reps of the bells IS.
Good signal. (Valko 17 Feb.)

3325 PAPUA NEW GUINEA NBC Bougainville 1122-1143 long
speech by M w/ments of Bougainville. 1143 brief deadair, and into mx.
1151 reggae-like island Pop song. 1155 live W w/closing ID anmnt
"...broadcast on NBC Bougainville." and ment of SW and FM freq, another
ID, date, and ments of Papua New Guinea, "ogala night", Monday, and
suddenly off at 1156:55 before she could finish. Pretty nice signal.
Not as strong with the Delta Loop but quieter than the Wellbrook for
some reason. (Valko 17 Feb.)

5020 SOLOMON ISLANDS SIBC 1157 usual xmsn ending rel.
inspiritional segment. 1200 instru. mx and canned EG voice-over closing
ID anmnt by W "You've been listening to the Solomon Islands Broadcasting
Corporation, R. Happy Isles. We have been transmitting on 1035
kilohertz in the mediumwave band and the shortwave frequency of 5020
kHz, and 9545 kHz in the 60 and 31 meterbands. We're now closing down
for today but we resume transmissions tomorrow morning at 6 o'clock. So
until then, from all of us at SIBC, goodnight everyone", instru. NA, and
signal off at 1202:16. Despite Rebelde, this was the most readable
signal in a long time. (Valko 17 Feb.)

5008.3 MADAGASCAR R.M. Found way down on this freq at 0241
w/Afro Pop mx. 0245 M anncr. 0247 song sounded like a remake of "Last
Friday Night" by Katy Perry. Usually wobbly signal. Dropped down below
5008 briefly at 0247, and down to 5008.1 when next song started at 0355.
So the freq drops every time there's a change in audio (song to song,
anmnt to song, etc.). 0300 ment of Madagascar but couldn't tell if it
was an ID. Had to notch out the Rebelde mixing product on 5010. (Valko
