Logs
** ARMENIA. 9975, August 6 at 2150 check, not even a JBA carrier detectable from the surprise 60th anniversary broadcast of Radio Luxembourg which was widely heard in Europe. EiBi shows scheduled only this date between 18 and 22. I am aware of no advance publicity for this in the DX press, tsk2. Huge splash here from bigsig 9980 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 13920, August 6 at 2346, very poor S1-S2 signal seems Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jammer against Sound of Hope, which Aoki shows on 13920 any/all the time from 2213 to 1420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, August 6 at 2330, JJJBBBA carrier, from R. Chaski. Best audible if tuned to 5979.65-USB. I stay on it amid the summer storm noise level until autocutoff at 2341:08.5* give or take. So they`ve let it slip more than 11 minutes past the nominal closing. Last timing here was July 20 until 2339:15*, which is 113.5 seconds over a 17-day period, or averaging 6.68 seconds per! Right on ``schedule`` within a few hundredths of a second. As usual I don`t compute this until afterwards, so am not aware of exactly when the carrier is going to drop. I love this precision in such an unintentional display from an otherwise boring gospel huxter station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120, August 1335, JBA carrier, presumably R. Hargeisa by longpath during English segment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1889 monitoring: confirmed Sunday August 6 at 2330 on WBCQ 9331.49v-CUSB, good S8.

UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Aug 7 at 0539 UT, JBA carrier even with R75 preamps off; perhaps pirate as reported sometimes, or TIS. I usually start/end MW bandscans here with nothing heard. There are also Australian and Argentine broadcasters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** ALASKA. 7355, August 6 at 1203, KNLS English with preview of hour`s segments; after song, first one at 1207 is Eye on Health & Medicine. Starts S9, fades to S6, soon degrading. Nothing audible on // 11870 (nor 11885)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIG DIGEST)

** BOUGAINVILLE [and non]. 3325, August 6 at 1155, music and BFO double-het implying two carriers; 1158 brief announcement, more music to cut off air mid-tune at 1200*, uncovering the weaker carrier. So first was NBC Bougainville, and second RRI Palangkaraya.

Ron Howard reports the same kind of thing on August 4 at 1201 as I also logged. However, on August 5 he says NBC was absent, leaving only RRI from 1139 to 1234 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, UT Sunday August 6 at 0555, RHC with some great deft classical/jazz piano playing, but Ed Newman does *not* back-announce what or by whom! Instead wraps up biweekly jazz show, piano transition to restart the English hour early at 0557, first off, this-day-in-history, topped by the death of Engels 122 years ago August 5. Whew, this might have gone unnoticed in the Free World (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 9575, August 6 at 1214 the haunting AIR IS, about S6, 1215 opening barely audible. It`s Tibetan until 1330, 500 kW, 102 degrees from Bengaluru per Aoki, and *jammed, but no sign of that yet from the ChiCom. 102, south of due east is not the direxion of Tibet from Bengaluru! No better antenna available, or error? HFCC shows 38 degrees --- that`s more like it! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, August 6 at 1214, RNZI is S9+20 with pop music, so still not aiming toward PNG. Barry Hartley explains what`s really going on, which is not made clear on the RNZI website.

I had said, ``7425, July 27 at 1247, RNZI obviously still on the Pacific rather than PNG antenna as nominally switched to only at 11-13 UT; consequently a good signal here when we normally must strain to hear it or give up. RNZI still claims, ``Bougainville/Papua New Guinea and Timor Transmission 1100-1300 UTC. From 1100-1300 UTC our programme is directed to the North Western Pacific and Asia``, at
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/listen

Barry replied August 1: ``Hi Glenn, Further to your comments in the NASWA Flashsheet, RNZI has an antenna switching problem at the transmitter site, which means the 325 degree antennas cannot be used at present. Repairs should happen soon. The 35 degree antennas are being used full time with 100 kW, which actually is the power always used by RNZI. It is usually split between two antennas, 50 kW each beamed 35 and 325 degrees. The transmitter NEVER runs at 50 kW! Regards, Barry Hartley``

On August 3 I replied: ``Barry, That explains it, but I am a bit confused by what you say. RNZI own skeds never show two headings at once, rather always Pacific except at 11-13, PNG, which is currently out of service. Do you mean when it`s working, the 325 antenna is still getting half the power even when PNG is not singled out as target? And only the other half on the 35? It did not seem that way to us, with a signal drop at 1100 on 7425.

HFCC registrations do show 50 kW each on both antennas almost all the time (except unspecified DRM 35 kW) along with many alternate frequencies not currently employed. I figured this was to cover possible contingency changes, rather than actual usage all the time.
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbyfmo.php?seas=A17&fmor=RNZ
RNZI is also handling the frequency management for Vanuatu and Solomon Islands``

And Barry responds August 6: ``Hi Glenn, Yes, both antennas, 35 degrees and 325 degrees are used most of the time. The 100 kW is split between them. The only exceptions are the DRM service, 1645-2050 UT, when 35 kW DRM is used (the 100 kW becomes 35 kW in DRM mode) and the PNG/Bougainville service, 1059-1258 UT, when 100 kW is beamed at 325 degrees. Contrary to what Ivo in Bulgaria says, RNZI ALWAYS runs at 100 kW!

By the way, RNZI is now officially called RNZ Pacific, since May, although the term RNZI is used as well. RNZ looks after Vanuatu and the Solomons` frequency assignments as favour to them. RNZ also looks after their transmitters occasionally when severe problems arise. It is part of New Zealand's Pacific aid program. I hope this explains things! Regards, Barry`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. OK tropo morning of August 6 propels some low-power OKCs to Enid. Decoding at 1452 UT are: 36 KUOK-CD; 42 KBZC-LD;

At 1505 UT, 21 KTOU-LD with its six subchannels:
21-1, HSN
21-2, SBN Live per bug UR
21-3, HSN-2
21-4, JTV HD
21-5, totally black screen and no audio!
21-6, ? another infomercial

Also in are full-powers on RF 26, KTEN ``10`` Ada; on RF 20, KQCW-HD ``19-1``, but exhibiting a KOTV 6 LR bug from Tulsa.

KOCB RF 33 OKC is not decoding, implying some DX QRM to it. Most likely probably KUVN Garland TX among lots of other Texans and a few Okies, Kansies.

Also BAD DTV signals not decoding on RF 19, 12 and 11 until 1500.

And once again the last living NTSC transmitter around here, A48, KOCY-LP with Estrella TV, weak but steady and NOT cutting off the air! snowy color signal. Ahhh, snow, about to become a past-thing on the TV screen. All gone by 1552 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1889 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday August 6 at 0340 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO --- but too much storm noise to figure out when it would have started, nominal 0315. Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW [lately 9331+]
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
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455 // 9395 // 7780, August 6 at 1323, three WRMIs with AWR Wavescan at secret time of Sunday 1300. The WRMI schedules show only 25 airings of WS per week, but we include a few more like this we have run across, on DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Correct frequency was 12060, not 12050; sigh. Fixed:

** ALGERIA [non]. 12060, August 5 at 2040, weak signal sounds like French altho RTA via FRANCE is supposed to be in Arabic during this hourpart per Aoki; also with het on low side, 12059.63, suspected as spur out of much stronger 12050 WEWN Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
