Logs
** BANGLADESH. 15505, March 17 at 1358, finally! A JBA carrier from Bangladesh Betar, a few days before equinox managing to propagate transpolarly. I have frequently sought this all winter. Then I strain to hear any modulation: yes, recognizable BB interval signal once at 1359:27.5, and JBA mis-timesignal I think ending at 1359:48.5 --- so they are *still* off-time, out of whack. And into Urdu.

I also frequently check for Sri Lanka`s mis-timesignal opening 11905 circa 0115, but still not making it at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6070, March 17 at 0544, not even a carrier from CFRX, while it is normally always there; must be off. K index only 2 and no storms as of 0600. Whew, March 17 at 1327, very poor signal but recognizably CFRX in English. BTW, in A-17 6070 will be hit by CCI from MWV Madagascar in Spanish at 0200-0300; CFRX gets no protexion from Canadian authorities at HFCC. Vatican, Austria, Germany will also continue on 6070 at other times, as well as not registered North Korea; but not the imaginary Jayapura, Indonesia which continues in HFCC. 6070 also an option for JIC, i.e. Sea Breeze at 13-15 UT but I think they have not used it yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 7850, March 17 at 0549, no signal from CHU, but maybe just not propagating, as 7490 WBCQBS is uncharacteristically JBA.

7850-CUSB & 14670-CUSB, March 17 at 1404, both are in well.

3330-CUSB, CHU was still off early March 17. Attention Comoro Islands, please reactivate your 3331 transmitter for a special DX test while this is possible. FM scheduled from *0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910+, March 17 at 0546, AlcaravÃn Radio is off now when it has been reliable lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, March 17 at 0548, RHC is still on, but 5025 Rebelde is off; contrarily, 5025 had been on earlier tonight circa 0200. You never know what`s next with these.

17580, March 17 at 1417, RHC is S9+20 of dead air except for some hum; while 17730 is off and 17750 is a JBA carrier. Suggestion: since 17580 is on, modulate at least it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 11560, March 17 at 1415, music and ``Salaam Aleikum`` at S3-S5. It`s AIR going from Dari to Pashto, listed as 500 kW, 280 degrees from GOA, but maybe moved elsewhere like Bengaluru (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5995, March 17 at 1323, RNZI still audible fairly on a Friday, in Dateline Pacific item about TONGA â possible closure or privatization of state broadcaster TBC. Then I find the whole story:
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/programmes/datelinepacific/audio/201836918/tonga-pm-threatens-state-broadcaster-with-closure
24 hours later, on Saturdays only, RNZI is scheduled to be back on 7355 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.1, March 17 circa 1345 UT, KGOU via KWOU Woodward with a report about International Crystal in OKC going out of business; location is valuable historic property on Film Row:
http://kgou.org/post/after-66-years-crystal-manufacturer-close-its-doors-film-row
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, March 17 at 1418, K6FRC CW beacon ID is JBA vs CODAR. What about all the other beacons listed on the 13550-13570 band; are they really ever active??

http://www.lwca.org/sitepage/part15/index.htm
Apparently yes, as all seem to have logs for 2016 or 2017. The only ones I ever hear are GNK, MTI and K6FRC.

The only 13 MHz one on this long list (sort by frequency):
http://www.on5ex.be/clipboard_view_unreg_freq.php

``KV4QT 2011-02-14 15:30:00 13557.540 HiFER Beacon; 5wpm CW ID=MTI @ 4.30mw into indoor folded dipole. (OldRef ID#397,KI4MTI-AB3MM)``

KV4QT is not in the USVI! But per ARRL lookup:
HOGAN, WILLIAM T, KV4QT
2161 Colonial Oak Way
Stone Mountain, GA 30087

I do hear MTI from time to time, but not right now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1869 monitoring: confirmed Thursday March 16 at 2130 on WRMI 11580, fair and improving. Missed checking 2330 Mar 16 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15770, March 17 at 1403, no signal from WRMI. #3 transmitter is now supposed to run 12-22 UT, nothing but BS except other programming for final hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 700, March 17 at 1257 UT with WLW still in but nulled, Texas ads including one in Sugarland, mentions an FM ID in passing, and ``Voice of Texas``. Therefore it is not my closer one, KHSE in The Metroplex, which is Spanish religion, but the farther one from Houston market, KSEV Tomball, 15/1 kW U4, with such a slogan in NRC AM Log. Day pattern has less of a null toward us than KHSE. Can`t find any FM for it listed, not even mentioned on own website, but clearly a far-right extremist outlet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 740, March 17 at 1258 UT, KTRH Houston with TX ads, I-45 mentions, is making 72/min SAH with KRMG Tulsa = 1.2 Hz; even tho 50 kW, day and night patterns are supposed to have deep nulls toward OK, so I again suspect they are out of whack (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 910, March 17 at 1301 UT, NPR News from Culver City, California, so has to be WSUI Iowa City IA --- a public radio station the Trumpsters would love to do away with (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1020, March 17 at 1303 UT, Mexmx, ``La EstaciÃn de la Raza`` by SHVA, i.e. KMMQ Plattsmouth NE (Omaha market), not to be construed as racist? What if Anglos were to slogan that way? With nearby KOKP OK nulled as much as possible, and no sign of KCKN Roswell now Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1260, March 17 at 1307 UT, ``Radio de la comunidad latina de Iowa``, many ads mentioning Des Moines, 515 area codes, ``La Reina, y nada mÃs``, mÃsica. 5 kW KDLF Boone IA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UZBEKISTAN. 15755, March 17 at 1402, S Asian music, presumed TWR Tashkent at 131 degrees as in HFCC --- as I previously logged Feb 19, but STILL no listing in EiBi or Aoki; wonder if they read my reports? As I researched previously, seems to be replacement for 7505 scheduled in Hindi at this time. How about own website of TWR India? Would you believe that they are still linking to 3.4 years out-of-date pdf sked?
http://radio882.com/schedule/TWR-I-Broadcast-Schedule-Oct2013.pdf
I was about to complain that it shows no frequencies, just meter bands! Another sked version says I am not authorized to see it on google drive with my only gmail ID!
http://twr.in/home/mass-media/radio/broadcast-schedule
``You need permission to access this published document``
Was this in the WRTH Feb pdf updater? NO! 7505 not audible now, but inconclusive; or is it? Weak S6-S7 talk on 7600, listed as BBC Tashkent in Hindi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4739.0, March 17 at 0213, open carrier showing up here again, S9 vs CODAR swishes peaking S9+10. Maybe idling RTTY transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5125.0, March 17 at 0212, big AM open carrier again here, S9+20; and still at 0547 recheck. Slight propagational fading so not something local (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search March 17: finally I awaken two minutes before sunrise here so check it out at 1237-1239:
774, 693 and 594 from NW, presumably Japan; and 702 from WSW, presumably Australia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** COLOMBIA. 5910.197, March 16 at 0703, AlcaravÃn Radio with tropical music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, March 15 at 0617, R. Rebelde is now on, having been absent at last check 0106 (however, then I had a JBA carrier a smidgen above 5025.000, and I now see that Dave Valko had measured R. Quillabamba 3 Hz high, just right). At 0617, 5040 RHC is off, I guess nominally finishing English at 0600 now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860, March 16 at 1308, RHC Spanish talk is audible since Yemen [non] is so weak, i.e. second-order spur from 11840, along with matching -20 kHz spur on 11820, and much stronger first-order spurs on 11850 & 11830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 17750, March 15 at 1403, only RHC on 16m is a carrier here, with 17580 and 17730 already off. One can never be quite sure which of the trio will be operational at any time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [and non]. 7175-LSB, March 15 at 0600, NY0V/MM approaching Howland Island, in contact with much stronger LA8QQ/portable W4 in SC who has a good American accent despite being Norwegian. NY0V refers us to his qrz.com page and to http://nauticos.com for more info about this maritime expedition. Turns out to be concerned with search for remains of Amelia Earhart, Howland being one of the destinations on her flight. QRZ.com info:

``NY0V USA flag
THOMAS N VINSON
31000 US 52 S.
Chatfield, MN 55923 USA
QSL: DIRECT, W0 BURO, LOTW

The Eustace Earhart Discovery Expedition:

NY0V/MM: From around Feb 20 through March 2017. Look for me from some rare grids as we sail from KH6 and be on station around the vicinity of KH1. (Sorry, no landing!) We will be conducting deep water SONAR surveys at 18,000 ft/5400 m below the surface as we search for Amelia Earhart's Lockheed L10E. Check out http://www.nauticos.com You can follow along on the expedition as we will be updating the expedition portal at: http://expeditionportal.nauticos.com/ I will add QSL info once I return.

You can listen to the story of my radio history on "QSO Today" podcast on Eric, 4Z1UG's site:
http://www.qsotoday.com/podcasts/NY0V
This is podcast #111``

After this contact, LA8QQ calls CQDX on same frequency. Checking again March 16 at 0655, I find NY0V/MM on 7178-LSB working a ZL, both very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1869, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935, March 16 at 1306, Sea Breeze from JSR Tokyo is still here another Thursday with English, typical sounders; weak but no jamming audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5995, Thu March 16 at 1302, RNZI on new frequency, ex-7355, good S9+10 shortly after sunrise here, but will deteriorate quicker than 7355 did --- which is still on their schedule for Saturdays only, why? Pacific news now about PNG, Vanuatu, where telephony went out and they had to call in an Australian expert to fix it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020.0, March 16 at 0706, carrier at S7 in splash of 5025 Cuba; presumed SIBC already, no modulation detectable, and could be dead air as recently reported for hours on 9545 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UKRAINE [non]. 11580, March 15 at 1330, RUI via WRMI, preview mentioning International Women`s Day which was March 8, so I conclude this file is from one week ago, not today. Then 1335 feature on an exhibition about 50 Ukrainian inventors, many of whom got mixed in with Russians during the Soviet era (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1868 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday March 15 at 1326, the 1315.5 airing on WRMI 9955, good; and // 6855, poor. Also confirmed Wed Mar 15 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490 webcast, but I was getting worried as Brother Scare was on just before instead of Financial Survival; and overlapped with the ID which overlapped with WOR starting. Also audible fairly on 7490 itself a few minutes later. Also confirmed Wed March 15 at 2355, the 2330 airing on WBCQ 9329.9v-CUSB, good.

WORLD OF RADIO 1869 ready for first airings March 16:
Thu 1130 WRMI 9955 to SSE

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855 // stronger 7730 // strongest 5850, Thursday March 16 at 0700, WRMI opening `Jazz for the Asking` hosted by Keith Perron.
The website http://www.pcjmedia.com dated March 8 now says:

``Stay tuned - We are rebuilding - PCJ Radio International twice weekly North American broadcasts --- We are rebuilding PCJ Media with an entirely new look for 2017 - In the meantime, Catch PCJ Radio International twice weekly to North America.
Wednesday - 0100 UT on 11580
Friday - 2200 UT on 9955``

So still overlooking the additional WRMI broadcasts I have already pointed out, notably this one, which on the WRMI grid still mistakenly Friday instead of Thursday, is labeled `Media Network Plus`, but all of them ought to be labeled PCJ, as one never knows exactly which PCJ program will be contained. The JFTA page http://www.pcjmedia.com/jfta does not mention carriage on WRMI or any SW station.

9580: note that WRMI has registered this ex-Radio Australia frequency for A-17, at exactly the same hours RA used it, 0900-2100 UT! When RA self-destructed at end of January, I suggested to Jeff White that WRMI should take over this frequency, either to preserve it for possible RA revival, or even to relay RA, whether ABC liked it or not. Would be very popular among North American SWLs and great PR for WRMI. But unknown yet what WRMI will really do with it: to become the daytime partner to 6855 transmitter at night on 285 azimuth, which has been running 24 hours, but pretty useless in the daytime, even more so in summer [WORLD OF RADIO 1869]

11580, March 16 at 1312, WRMI playing `Viva Miami` episode in Spanish with ThaÃs & Jeff discussing HFCC visit to Jordania. This is a secret airing, Thu at 1300, since the skedgrid shows nothing but World Music. I`ll add it to DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, March 16 at 0708, WWCR is dead air except for hum and lite whine of varying pitch and beating; S9+30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Replying to my previous remark that WRNO 7505VV is in Chinese daily at 0300-0400, Ron Howard says, ``Hi Glenn, Observed schedule for the Chinese language program ("Praise for Today"), after DST started, is daily 0200-0300 UT, noted on March 13 & 15. After 0302 back to English programming till about 0402* cut off. Ron``.

OK, not monitored at either time myself, but contradicts previous info he got from WRNO that it would stay at 10 pm Central, which was 0400 UT, and now 0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5125, March 15 at 0615, big buzz centered here, almost too close to WBCQ. March 16 at 0705, now an S9+30 open carrier on 5125.0. Much like the one on 5100.0 at 0105 March 15. What`s going on here? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11435-USB, March 16 at 1326, presumed Indonesian pirates singing and talking over each other; think I hear some English words, ``got you``, ``meet you`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs


logs of wb in Massachusetts-US and Alberta-Canada
remote SDR units.
Most of the middle US and east coast remote net SDR stations
have switched off tonight, due of the bad weather?, I guess.

BRAZIL. 6180, March 15 at 0132, RNA/RNB is on tonight at S=9+35dB,
while // 11780 is considerably weaker.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

6180.028 BRA RNA/RNB POWERHOUSE S=9+35dB at 0130 UT March 16.
9 kHz wide signal modulated. and
11780.007 S=9+10dB at 0141 UT, fluttery signal into Alberta CAN.
8 kHz wide signal,
b u t contain a noisy annoying 180 Hertz BUZZ tone,
visible on the Perseus screen.


BRAZIL. 9724v, March 15 at 0114, no signal from RÃdio RB2, yet the other
ZY variants are still detectable on 9818.86, R. Nove de Julho; 9674.9 with
het and 9664.9 clear.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

ZY domestic stn:
9818.870 BRA weak S=4 at 0203 UT March 16.
9674.914 same
9664.912 BRA poor S=5-6
9630.018 BRA Radio Aparecida at 0210 UT, weak S=4-5

compare 9580 CRI Chinese from TITAN Quivican CUB S=9+10dB at 0208 UT

BRAZIL 11856.12, March 15 at 0144, JBA carrier, and none closer to
11855, so presumed R. Aparecida has varied up to here. It was also on the hi
side of 11856 before, such as on October 23, 2015 at 11856.27.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

11764.622 BRA SRDA rather poor S=6 in Alberta CAN. female presenter 0141 UT
11856.111 BRA R Aparecida, with seldom AVE MARIA prayer at 0145 UT,
padre and nun prayer. S=6-7 signal in Alberta CAN.

CUBA [non]. 5025, March 15 at 0106, R. Rebelde is off again, but I still
get a JBA carrier ever so slightly on the + side, perhaps R. Quillabamba,
PerÃ.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Yes 5025 R Rebelde OFF air at 0100 UT,
comes on air, when an Bauta transmitter is available - free ,
they are short of txs there - or on repair work now the units ?
5025 R Rebelde at 1108 UT on March 15, S=9+10dB in Detroit Michigan US.

4765 CUB R Progreso from Bejucal on air, S=9+20dB in MA US at 0110 UT.
and some anoying CODAR QRM ranges: 4446-4594, 4735-4795, 4800-4836 kHz,
4887-4916 S=9+10dB strongest.

5040 CUB RHC Bauta in Spanish (not Creole/French), S=9+35dB in MA-US unit.
20 kHz wide audio signal. 0113 UT March 16.
6000 CUB RHC Quivican S=9+35dB sport event program, strong carrier,
but somewhat lower modulation.
6060 CUB RHC Bauta, DISTORTED audio Spanish at S=9+20dB level,
musica traditional cantando, 20 kHz wide audio at 0127 UT.
6165 CUB RHC Bauta - much BETTER modulation compared than 6060 kHz.
At 0129 UT rather powerful S=9+35dB signal into
Alberta-CAN remote unit. 9 kHz wide music modulation.
11760 CUB RHC nice modulation at 0138 UT S=9+10dB, 20 kHz wideband signal

11670.008 odd frequency at 0101 UT in MA-US. 11760 S=8 in MA !,
11840 S=8 in MA, but S=9+5dB in Alberta, latter up to 30 kHz
wideband in peaks.
13740 CUB RHC Bauta, S=9+10dB in MA-US at 0104 UT March 16, 20 kHz
wide signal, strong 100% modulation, but light distorted rough
voice audio.
9535.004 CUB RHC Bejucal, Spanish news read on Venezuela matter. 0112UT

wb


CUBA [and non]. 9490, March 15 at 0118, Radio RepÃblica inbooming at
S9+40 over wall of noise jamming, making me suspect it`s no longer via
Issoudun, FRANCE; an RMI brokered broadcast moved to WRMI itself? Its known
frequencies on different azimuths are weaker, 9395 S9+30, and 9955 only
S8-S5. But Europrop is up, with 9420 Greece in at S9+25, so could really be
France on 9490. Anyhow, DST must have forced the sign-on an hour earlier to
*0100, ex *0200 as Richard Langley confirmed by nightly monitoring before
DST began. By 0142, has weakened to only S9+25 and by comparison the jamming
is worse (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

9490 CUB/F___ Only poor jamming signal heard in Alberta CAN remote unit,
S=6 signal. At 0150 UT nothing propagate as Radio RepÃblica
from Issoudun into western Canada on this channel. March 16.


USA 9330v-CUSB, March 15 0124, this WBCQ is now BSing, not // the voice on
7730 WRMI, but the same voice as on 9400, Bulgaria? altho content not
matching either. I don`t have the patience to try to match them with a
considerable time offset, as this will axually require listening to what he
says, at least keywords. BS may now be on 9330 from 0100 Wednesdays since
`Amateur Radio Roundtdable` is on 5129.81 instead; and Brother Scare
presumably runs 9330 all night whether audible or not, and all day, until
WORLD OF RADIO at 2330.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

U S A. 9330v-CUSB, March 15 at 0103, WBCQ presumably the JBA carrier,
altho before 0100, Blalock was blasting; recheck at 0124, now it`s Brother
Scare, who will presumably continue all night whether propagating or not,
and all day until 2330 another WORLD OF RADIO time. But the BS on 9330 is
NOT // 9400 Bulgaria or 7730 et al. WRMIs
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTEING DIGEST)

9329.879 USA WBCQ in USB-mode (!), poor S=4 signal heard in
Alberta CAN remote SDR unit.
Female prayer read in Bible at 0155 UT on March 16.


U S A. 5129.81-AM, UT Wed March 15 at 0104, `Amateur Radio Roundtable` is
underway on this WBCQ, which replaced 9330 on December 14, as I had urged
due to low winter MUFs. Should get back up on 9 if not 7 MHz in a few weeks
for spring/summer conditions. Time has shifted one UT hour earlier now,
ex-0200. WBCQ schedule still shows 9330, altho the time conversions have
been updated for 4 hours difference between UT and ET, but still labeled EST
instead of EDT.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

5129.809 USA WBCQ male presenter at 0157 UT on March 16. S=8-9 signal,
radio listener talk.


U S A. 6855 // 11580, UT Wed March 15 at 0147, WRMI with Keith Perron
introducing a John Lennon song, on `Media Network Plus`, as scheduled on
11580 only, but duplicated this hour on stronger 6855.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

6855 USA Talk about AWR QSL card, address given, at 0158 UT, Not BS/TOM.
S=9 fluttery signal, and 11580 kHz, latter suffer by
'like CHN mainland jam of broadband noise' across the Pacific
in 11568 to 11584 kHz range, TWN SOH around 11570 kHz ?

log on MA-US remote unit:
5085 USA WTWW powerful S=9+35dB signal heard on east coast.
Talk on hams, at 0120 UT amateur radio newsline, talk on
echolink connection. In peaks 20 kHz wide signal,
talk on hurrican year 1992.
Two UNID spurs visible symmetrically on 5097.910 and 5072.090
