Isn't this actually from Benin, on the opposite (Atlantic) side of the African continent? Or did I miss a 4,000-mile station move??

Logs
** CUBA. 9720, April 9 at 2112, NO signal from RHC, despite new sked
dated April 7 via Wolfgang Bueschel claiming English to Africa is now
here at 21-22. I quickly scan the 9, 11, 13 and even 15 MHz bands for
a replacement, including last year`s frequency 11880 --- zilch. I do
the same during the following two hours when 9720 continues absent, at
2245 and 2314, the latter when English continues on 5040.

I could not imagine RHC would be using 7 MHz band for this, so
unchecked, but Dave Kenny, UK found 7380! as new English-to-Africa
frequency, at 23-24, preceded 22-23 by French and Kriyol (instead of
Portuguese). Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11980, April 9 at 2315, CRI English relay at S9/S9+10. This
could easily be taken as a fundamental, but it`s really second
harmonic of 5990 which is only slightly stronger, S9+10/20; and
axually sounds better on 11980. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENINIG DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, UT Wed April 10 at 0033-0043, RHC English is S9+10/20
but just barely modulated, while // 6165 is undermodulated but
sufficient, during `DXers Unlimited` which Arnie introduces as the
``weekend edition``, so wrong show played? Some ham topic I zone out
from his mumbled presentation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, April 10 at 0101 I happen to catch tail of Spanish
frequency announcement claiming 5040 start at 0200 --- but here we
are! And 11760 to stop at 0300. Also plugs now 4 FM frequencies 24h
covering fraxions of Cuba. But all in Spanish? No, English also claims
to be on them, but what is the breakdown also with other languages?
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 9630, April 10 at 0612, RNZI is VG, but ~0.5
kHz het also audible from high side, i.e. R. Aparecida, Brasil (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 5980, April 10 at 1433, two VP signals a few
Hz apart beating, i.e. RNZI vs Shiokaze. The latter seems to go off
about 1435 as scheduled, but RNZI signal is still unstable, Doppler
fading? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 11680, April 9 at 1804, VP S4-S6 news in French; 1820 think I
hear RFI mentioned, but it`s really BBCWS per HFCC, 1800-1830, 300 kW,
152 degrees from Woofferton (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1976 monitoring: NOT confirmed Tuesday April
9 at 2055 the 2030 on WRMI 7780, which had been reliable for many
months; instead, sounds like synthetic Bible readings, but not //
TOMBS 9330v etc. WRMI websked still shows WOR, so a mistake or
permanent change?

WOR also NOT confirmed Wednesday April 10 at 1030 on WRMI 5950, as I
happen to awaken; instead: SMTV! See WRMI item below for expanded SMTV
sked. Next WORs unless further WRMI changes:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0000 UT Thursday WRMI 7730
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
0130 UT Saturday WRMI 7780 [new; or 1977?]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4980, April 10 at 0058, WRMI with Supreme Master TV, 0059.5
Zanotti ID and off, extended an hour. Also more SMTV April 10 at 1033
instead of WORLD OF RADIO on Wednesday. The WRMI frequency grid
websked has now been updated as of April 7 for 24 hours of SMTV, one
frequency at a time, presumably 7 dpw, thus blowing away that WOR and
all other programming in these blox, mainly Systems D and F:

01-03 5950, 03-04 9395, 04-08 5950, 08-10 9395, 10-11 5950,
11-14 7570, 14-20 15770, 20-21 9395, 21-01 4980.

But the program skedgrids below that have not been updated to
correspond! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5010, UT Wed April 10 at 0100, WRMI in English with Bible
readings; frequency grid shows extension 0100-0130 Tue-Sat on System
H, but the System H program grid does not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
Note: previous report should have been subjected as April 7-8! Not 8-9,
At least the dates within it were correct - sigh

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.960, April 9 at 1401-1404+, JJBBA carrier, no
doubt LRA36 on again since it`s Tuesday, but slightly lower than
measured last week. Manuel MÃndez, Spain, meanwhile got a reply from
RNASG March 30 that they do operate Tue & Thu at 1230-1400, but are
looking into adding an evening broadcast. With staff names:

``SeÃor Director de la Emisora Gustavo Ernesto QUIROGA
Encargado de la Emisora Josà RamÃn CALPANCHAY (Operador TÃcnico)
Locutoras:
Sabrina ALANIS
Beatriz COSTILLA
Karina MUÃOZ
Nuestros medios de contactos son:
Por correo electrÃnico: lra36@hotmail.com``

Last Tuesday April 2 they did stay on until 2059* mostly music as
monitored by Bruce Churchill via the remote in Brasil.

Wolfgang Bueschel replies today April 9: ``Nothing visible on SDR's in
Perseus server net, but noted KiwiSDR net on Brazil Rio de Janeiro
island, off coast SDR installation. S=3 or -113dBm music program at
1540 UT at April 9, AGC off, manual gain 97dB. 73 wb df5sx``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11850, April 8 at 2302, RHC Spanish again on new frequency,
and this time at S9+10/20 on fundamental, I can also detect the -10
kHz JBA spur on 11840. So the spur and fundamental have swapped
places. Jamming still running on 11860 but one or two carriers
underneath, no doubt the matching spur plus 10 from 11850. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, April 9 at 0607, another hour of RHC English is still
running here and on the rest of The Cuban Five: 6165, 6100, 6060 all
sufficient, except 6000 JBA, much softer than 5995 Mali. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 9 at 1314, RHC is VP and JBM, still ex-6150 but
no 2x audible on 12000, and // 9640 which Wolfgang Bueschel found
missing earlier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9465, April 9 at 1325, S4-S6 pop song stands out
from other E Asian programming; Aoki shows it`s Nippon no Kaze in
Korean via Paochung, TAIWAN at 1300-1330; followed immediately by FEBC
Bocaue in Yue, when I do have a much weaker signal (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. April 9 at 1420 UT, regional tropo DTV DX is
up; Hepburn map for 1500 UT shows Enid on the northern edge of level-1
enhancement, surrounding levels 2 and 3 in S Central OK. Most open UHF
and a few hi-VHF channels show BAD signals, but only one is decoding
solidly, from OKC:

RF 21, KUOT is the PSIP ID on all six of its subs, some with corner
bugs, some without or illegible. I later compare to rabbitears.info:

21-1, bug upper right Y in a circle and below that ctvn.org for
Cornerstone TV
21-2, no bug but r-e listed as IBN TV; what`s that?
21-3, 3ABN LR
21-4, AFTV, not 3ABN Latino as in r-e (AmFacts - Amazing Facts)
21-5, HopeChannel, UR below a logo - NO audio!! r-e says 3ABN Proclaim
21-6, unID; r-e has only 1 thru 5!

Rabbitears says this is really KUOT-CD, 15 kW ERP at 591 feet above
ground level; slightly direxional favoring NW. Digital channel 21,
display channel 19 --- no the display channel is also 21 now.

This holds up solid on both my broken rooftop antennas, over an hour
until about 1535 UT fade below threshold. Some of the channels are
same as on my local 3ABN translator K17JN-D which *still* is emitting
subs 1, 3, and 5 only, as per PSIPs except 17-1 only with callsign:
17-1, 3ABN bug LR
17-3, AmFacts and bug LR
17-5, Hope201 and HopeChannel bug UR

At 1601-1604 UT another bandscan finds Wichitans in from the north,
decoding or semi-decoding into my SSE/SE-facing antennas:

RF 45, KSNW DT 3-1 --- still not repacked to 15 where will collide
with KTBO OKC; also with: 3-2 Telemun[do]; 3-3 Ion; 3-4 Justice
RF 35, MyTV 36-1, i.e. KMTW Hutchinson
RF 31, KDCU-DT 31-1, Univision; too weak to explore -2, -3, -4
RF 26, FOX 24-1 [obviously KSAS --- and OKC`s Fox on RF 24, 25-1 KOKH,
also PSIP IDs only as FOX!]
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. Dead air from TOMBS: see USA: WRMI, WWCR

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1976 monitoring: just after
dispatching my last report, checking via UTWente SDR for WOR via IRRS
via ROMANIA, scheduled for 1800 (ex-1900) UT Mondays on 7290:

From 1758 UT Monday April 8, I am instead hearing Chinese music, 1800
timesignal, CNR1 theme. NO IRRS --- HFCC now has CNR Beijing scheduled
until 1805, and it does go off and/or is replaced by a strong tone,
presumably IRRS getting ready and then open carrier. Soon I find this
timely notice from IRRS:

``Hi Glenn, Due to a last minute schedule change, we are starting 15
min later on 7290 kHz (1815-1915 UT daily, Summer), so your program
goes on air at 1815 UT (20:15 CEST) on Monday. 73, Alfredo Cotroneo``

So that avoids the CNR overlap. But there is considerable splash from
7280 in Spanish, 7300 in German. 7280 is Vietnam direct; 7300 is Iran
until 1820. I notify the above change to the WOR iog just in time at
1812.

WOR does start promptly at 1815, good signal. Bruce Churchill, CA,
replies: ``Nice signal from IRRS at 1822 8 April from KiwiSDR in Bay
of Islands NZ (path length nearly 10,800 miles) - SINPO 3/4,3544. At
1836 a white noise source co-channel wiped out the program, but
fortunately switching modes to USB solved that issue. Switched back to
AMN mode at 1850.5 and the noise was gone. However CRI's 500 kW 7295
xmtr coming on at 1857 forced me to switch to LSB mode - again this
eliminated the QRM. World of Radio program from tune-in to 1844,
Feature Story News (FSN) news broadcast at 1844.5, then "Shortwave
Report" at 1849.5 with extracts of news & opinion from Deutsche Welle,
Radio Habana Cuba and Russian Radio. Carrier off promptly at 1915.
Bruce``

Next scheduled WOR broadcast is 0030 UT Tuesday April 9 on WRMI 7730
--- but checked at 0041 thru 0059, VG Wavescan is playing instead!
Mistake? WS is already scheduled immediately prior at 0000, so twice
in a row, or swapped with WOR at 0000? Anybody hear it then? Websked
still shows 0030 WOR.

WOR still confirmed UT Tue Apr 9 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S9+10.
Next:
2030 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5950
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0000 UT Thursday WRMI 7730
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
0130 UT Saturday WRMI 7780 [new; or 1977?]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730, April 8 at 2310, S9+10/20 of open carrier dead air, as
WRMI-13 is now on skedgrid starting at 2300 with TOMBS for an hour,
then System D from 0000 (see WOR monitoring); while 11 & 12, 7570 &
5850, also start BSing at 2300, where I should have checked for more
OCDA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, April 9 at 0604, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR-3, when
TOMBS is scheduled weekdays all the way from 06 to 12 UT. Must not be
minding the satellite uplink at Walterboro, as dead air has also been
showing on WRMI, 7730, earlier, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, April 9 at 0556, NO signal from WRNO in Chinese or
English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
