** AUSTRALIA. 3210, Feb 17 at 1225, all set for the Unique Radio test publicized to start at 1259 and run about 6 hours, upon which the fate of it will be decided by Tim Gaynor --- and there is already a JBA carrier. I resume at 1256 past 1303 and the JBA carrier continues with no change at 1259, S4 level including noisy band. Tim could tell us if he had it on as early as 1225, but I doubt this was it. The R75 also gets JBA carriers on many other `even` 90mb frequencies, maybe receiver artifacts or traces of MW harmonix. I really didn`t expect to hear this low power over here, as I never have before. Note Aoki still lists Vintage FM on 3210, 24h with 100 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910.155, Feb 17 at 0659, HJDH is indeed still on late into the night after reactivating, first heard about 6 hours earlier, but frequency has drifted way up from 5910.06. Just music, including Mexican at 0702, no AlcaravÃn Radio ID or timecheck heard circa 0700. S8 including the rather high QRN level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.863, Feb 17 at 1318, about sunrise here, JBA carrier on frequency typical of WBCQ, presumably remnant of that still on, altho supposedly stopping at 1100 after a night of BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, Feb 17 at 1225, WRMI-5 is still off. I don`t think to tune around for a replacement until 1424 when I do find a JBA carrier on 6870, where IIRC WRMI started off, before being required to QSY, so back there now? I struggle to match traces of 6870 modulation with 9955, unseems so but it`s really too late into the dayside to be certain. If it has moved to 6870, this will affect several WORLD OF RADIO airings, starting with Friday 2230 // 11580 & 5950.

6870 could have been the RHC semiharmonic from 13740, except that fundamental is not on at this hour. If WRMI does run 24/7 on 6870, it will encounter some QRM from that when 13740 is on. I`ve asked Jeff White about this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Feb 17 circa 1300, hardly any signal from Republic of Yemen Radio, via SAUDI ARABIA? Recheck at 1505, very poor S5-S3 with Qur`an, interrupted by some brief non-musical Arabic announcements a few times at 1508, 1510, 1513. Has it resumed marking vespers at Sana`a? Current sunset is 1508, creeping a sesquiminute later per week. Or maybe it`s just because the Fribbath is about to finish. Seldom is any Qur`aning to be heard from this at random chex elsewhen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Feb 17 at 1305, carrier at S5-S8 level but can`t detect any modulation. I suppose RRI Palangkaraya more likely at this hour than NBC Bougainville. Anyhow, best signal on band when I was also seeking Unique Radio, NSW on 3210 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNIG DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4750, Feb 17 at 1313, YL talking at S7-S9 level vs CODAR, but unsure of language. Most likely is CNR1, Hailar, with Bangladesh Betar also listed, while RRI Makassar has been inactive for a long time now, last reported June 8, 2016 by Atsunori Ishida. At this time a few minutes before sunrise here, many carriers, mostly JBA on 60m from Tibetan, Indian, Chinese frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 6180 & 11780, Feb 17 at 0213 check, RNA/RNB is off again tonight. What`s wrong? A few months ago there were rumors that this SW station was endangered. There had not been any audible technical issues lately. How about it, LÃcio Haeser in BrasÃlia, or other radioescutas? First RAE gone from Argentina, now this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11854.99, Feb 17 At 0240, very weak R. Aparecida is almost sticking to nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. At 0130 UT Feb 17, I got this from my new contact in Colombia, LuÃs Hernando Cardozo, HK2MIZ: ``DXreport from BogotÃ, AlcaravÃn Radio loud and clear at 0120 today February 17th on 5910 kHz. No signal at the same time from La Voz de tu Conciencia (6010). SINPO 55555. Typical Colombian music and some religious messages``.

As I told him, until 0300 it`s blocked by Romania here, but there he reports no interference at all. So I make a point of checking during my next session: Feb 17 at 0206 there is a low het between them, adding up to S9+10, RRI in Romanian, and AlcaravÃn in Spanish talk is up about 5910.06. By 0252, RRI is weaker and/or HJDH is stronger so they are closer to equal levels; and with USB tuning I can also notch out the carrier/het from RRI if not its modulation. ``Running water`` ute interrupts briefly as often happens on this frequency. I`m busy after 0300, but quick check at 0345 finds the carrier from 5910.06 still evident. Maybe it will stay on late into this night? Only remaining obstacle on 5910 is NHK in Russian via Lithuania at 0430-0500.

AlcaravÃn Radio had been missing for weeks, at least from my hearance. As for sibling station Conciencia, at 0254 Feb 17 I find a JBA carrier on about 6010.04, which could be that, or since LuÃs is not hearing it, Radio InconfidÃncia, Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5011.27, Feb 17 at 0249, JBA carrier varying as I listen, in much stronger sideband of the 5010 Cuban leapfrog spur. Another thing I wanted to check tonight, since Ron Howard was hearing R. Madagasikara ``Feb 15 on 5011.28v, at 0239, with announcer``; he first heard it reactivated by long path: ``5010.78v, R. Madagasikara, 1518-1532, Feb 14. After being off the air here for a month (or more?)``. No doubt that`s it, yet all I have to go on is the almost exact frequency match with Ron`s log, as it will be tough to separate any audio here as long as Cuba is on 5010, but all it will take is for 5025 or 5040 to be missing to get rid of 5010 too. During previous activity, Madagascar would vary well below 5010, and was always unstable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7615, Feb 17 at 0243, Station YHWH is now on with usual stuff, S5-S3. Was not on during previous tuneby earlier in this hour. I never catch him signing on, I suppose at no exact times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 17 at 0101, R. Chaski JBA carrier, standing by for autocutoff which happens at 0101:42*, i.e. 20 seconds later than last catch three nights earlier, Feb 14 until 0101:22*, averaging right on six and two-thirds seconds per noctem; ah, such precision, and total disregard for whatever programming is in progress, but hardly audible here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1865 monitoring: confirmed Thursday February 16 at 2130 on WRMI, 11580, S8-S9. Also confirmed UT Friday Feb 17 at 0040 the 0030 on WBCQ 9330.07v-CUSB, S9+10. As I listen, it drifts up from 9330.05 to 9330.09. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Feb 17 at 0046, checking for `Broad Spectrum Radio` on WBCQ, but find a much too strong signal for that, S9+50, and hardly left-wing: instead, ad for something by L Ron Hubbard and My Company Tis of Thee, with an address for CSC Talk Radio, California, Missouri, and back to a talk show with Beth Ann, a far-right, anti-American extremist. This is definitely not BSR. And James Branum is planning to cut back to non-weekly broadcasts.

OMG, it`s WWCR on the wrong frequency, nothing on 7520! And it`s blotting out WBCQ which is nothing but a JBA het, must be considerably off-frequency, so weak by comparison that at first I can`t tell if it`s plus or minus. Ad break at 0057 repeats same one heard a few minutes ago; 0100 WWCR ID, and into `Real Radio`.

Meanwhile other reports of this have come in, first as a ``tone`` on 7490, where the signals must have been closer to equal. Some were able to make out VORW = Voice of the Report of the Week, as newly scheduled this hour on WBCQ --- tough luck!

Here are the WWCR programs supposed to be on 7520, Central M-F and UT:
6:00P News/Commonsense Coalition Beth Ann 0000
7:00P Real Radio Jack Hibbs 0100
7:30P Truth for Life Alistair Begg 0130
8:00P Renewing Your Mind R.C. Sproul 0200
8:30P Focus on the Family Jim Delay 0230

WWCR still here past 0111+. So at 0121, I e-mail Allan Weiner and the Monticello boardops: ``Allan, You might want to raise hell with WWCR. They are on 7490 instead of 7520 tonight, blasting WBCQ away with S9+50, before and after 0100 (ID WWCR heard). Some reports say they were also doing it last night. 73, Glenn``

I resume monitoring at 0200, and at 0205 find WWCR is still blocking WBCQ, the latter carrier measured on 7489.17, and now I can barely recognize the dulcet tones of Brother HyStairical under the presumed WWCR program as above.

But next check at 0229, BS/WBCQ is in the clear on 7489.12v, and WWCR is finally properly back on 7520.

Then I check the other `BCQ frequencies: 5129.90-AM, at 0217 with Canadian political discussion show `Just Right`; 9330.1v-CUSB at 0232 with BS, while Blalock the blaster this hour is now on 9265 WINB instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, Feb 17 at 0214, WRMI-5 is off the air! Next three up, 7570, 7730 & 7780 are nominal. During this hour, 6855 has been duplicating programming on WRMI-1, 11580, which like tonight at 0247 check is faded to JBA S3 during presumed Radio Prague. Sure hope it`s temporary, as 6855 duplicating various other frequencies throughout the night and into the day, has been very helpful; altho it`s not as strong as we would like and expect, on listed 285-degree azimuth, same as 7730, which is much stronger here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 5915, Feb 17 at 0242, ZNBCR1 with Fish Eagle IS, usual splatter from both sides, Romania and WHRI; 0251 anthem is playing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
