DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated Feb 7:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Feb 7 at 1455, PMS is S9+20 but with squeal and
hum, not the clear signal someone else credited her with; at least on
the air at the moment, sporadically (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 7 at 0606, no signal from RHC English, so
apparently totally off from previous 05-07 UT sked. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12300, Feb 7 at 1239, RHC is suptorted at S7-S8, checking
second harmonic right after 6150 at 1238, equally suptorted at S9+10;
wiggle that patchcord! Still the same at 1304 but weakened to S4-S6 on
the double; 1355 S6-S7 before off circa 1400. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640 // 9535, Feb 7 at 1251, RHC in portunhol -- a Brazilian
trying to speak Spanish, among other interviewees about solidarity
issues such as the bloqueo (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9570, Feb 7 at 1301, CRI Plus English news relay is suptorted
but readable, S9+20. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Feb 7 at 1448, no 28.6 kHz spurgalaxy audible, but
close-in hash out to 3.5 kHz above and below; unlike // 15230.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Feb 7 at 0615, brief Spanish and English sign-off
announcements from Radio Verdad/Truth, into lengthy multiverse NA
until 0620 when open carrier remains on. S9+10/20 good signal now.
1232 recheck is S9+10, good with song, hymn vs lightning crashes from
central/eastern Oklahoma storms, which started yesterday after a quiet
winter, really impacting LW, MW and lower SW, but when close enough
within 2 miles, also audible against OKC FM stations (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 7 at 0602, VON is on for a change, Hausa.

9689.92 approx., Thu Feb 7 at 1727-1738+, VON in English with news
about Nigeria, fair via UTwente SDR, and since it`s a weekday, no QRM
yet from Spain. Apparently new transmission intends to be daily, altho
missing last Sunday. Via WOR Hitlist, website https://www.von.gov.ng/
has no obvious link to a plain old SW transmission or program schedule.

Dave Kenny, UK, bdxc-news iog has just reported: ``Voice of Nigeria
heard on 9690 kHz this afternoon via the Tenerife SDR as follows:

1600-1615 in Arabic
1615-1630 in a vernacular, possibly Igbo or Yoruba ?
1630 - Sign-on in English, announced as the start of "two and a half
hours of the English service" So English should continue until 1900.

It looks as though this is a revised schedule with the extra broadcast
between 1600-1800 UT. Further checking needed to establish the evening
schedule after 1900 - but reception is difficult with co-channel Spain
at that time.

At the moment (1645) the signal is weak here, much better on the Kiwi
SDR in Tenerife. Dave`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. UNIDENTIFIED. 6925-AM, Feb 7 at 1309, S4-S6 rock
music with heavy beat, screaming, or is it soul? First thought is RCW,
Radio CompaÃÃa Worldwide, the Chilean pirate mostly reported by
Claudio Galaz in Chile. But no, it`s too late for that, way after
sunrise there.

Must be North American, unusual activity in the morning or possibly
trans-Pacific. Still there at 1330 talk or rap? 1340 thumping. Still
JBA carrier at 1456. Two more unID logs of it between 1437 and 1641:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,50802.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 10035, Feb 7 at 1245, VP signal with music. Has to be
spurious from 31m SWBC band here in the aero band. First check for
Cuba, of course! but no match on 9640. Then start tuning down and soon
find // on 9965, good signal, 70 kHz away. Clinched with an equally
weak spur on 9895, 70 kHz below 9965, all with praise music in
English. 1259 `Onward Christian Soldiers` theme and 1300 chimes, into
Korean. Aoki shows T8WH with WHR music before 1300 M-F, then Nippon no
Kaze daily. HFCC shows HBN 9965 not the air before 1300, then
Encompass brokering something in Korean.

EiBi agrees about 9965 before and after 1300, but also shows PLW on
9960 at 12-13 daily with Khmer Post Radio --- really, 5 kHz adjacent
from same site? I noticed nothing between 9965 and 9955 WRMI with RAE
in Brazuguese before 1255 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 4840, Feb 7 at 1235, TOMBS, creeping takeover
of more and more time on WWCR-3, now scheduled M-F 07-13 and Sat 10-
13. Guess what, at tune-in he`s pushing for phonecalls as he spends an
incredible amount of time doing --- but if even 1% of those give him
money, it`s worth it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Feb 6 at 2318, REE English segment, blues music,
then interview with musician Steve Groves (?), who has stopped over in
Spain to talk with Justin Coe, more music, 2323 ``All Trumped Up``.
Excellent reception S9+20/30 with no QRM or transmission problems.
2330 timesignal and into French which is M-F unlike English M/W/F. But
0101 Feb 7 recheck in Spanish, has faded to S9-S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1968 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday February
6 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, but opening is upcut after my first words with
the program number, S9 to S9+10; and 10 seconds later on WBCQ
7490.13v, S9 to S7. Also confirmed UT Thursday Feb 7 at 0100 on WRMI
7780, poor S7-S5. Next:

0930 UT Friday Unique 5045-LSB NSW ND

Complete WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM, podcast:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9387-9388 & 9402-9403, Feb 7 at 1255, wobbly distorted
spurblobs from 9395 WRMI transmitter during TOMBS. Very unusual for
any WRMI to have such a problem. Still so at 1451 recheck, at least
the lower one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9470, Feb 7 at 1253, WEWN in English poor with flutter S6-
S4. This obscure transmission at 09-13 is at 335 degrees polar route
to Asia. Doubt it is heard any better overthere (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 860, Feb 7 at 1412 UT, KKOW Pittsburg KS is unusually weak,
and nulling that I have anotherstation playing ``Hey Jude``; 1418
``Greatest Hits of the 60s & 70s on your smartphone --- Kono-land``,
so KONO San Antonio TX, 5000/900 watts U2, still rockin`. NRC AM Log
slogan reads ``70s & 80s`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Feb 7 at 1405 UT, lively W&M conversation in
Vietnamese, lots of laughter. Got to be KBXD Dallas, 50 kW direxional
day power, which easily overcomes KQAM Wichita while skywave lingers.
Its major daytime lobe aims right at us. Listed in NRC AM Log as
religious/brokered, Spanish, so how much of it is in Vietnamese or
otherlangs? Radio-locator claims it has no website. It`s not the only
Vietnamese in The Metroplex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. RE: KRZD-1550 mentioned in gh log of KAPE-1550 also in MO:
Hi Glenn. This still isn't on -- I drive by their tower site at Kansas
Expressway and Grand St. every day on my way to work [at KSMU] and
there is definitely no local signal here. As you would expect this
time of year, 1550 is a mess of skywave around 7:45 am and 5 pm
Central. 73, (Randy Stewart, Springfield (Battlefield) MO, Feb 4, DX
LISTENING DIGEST) Station is or was nothing but a continuous TIS-like
barker for the nearby Branson tourist trap (Glenn Hauser, DXLD)

** U S A. 1580, Feb 7 at 1358 UT, with KOKB Blackwell OK to the NE
nulled as much as possible, I have something else: Colorado Springs is
the largest city of the state in area (well, OK, but nevermind greater
Denver with all its surrounding suburbs). Missed ID but 1400 UT into
USA Radio News, 1403 Chuck Swindle show. So it`s KFCS The Trumpet as
the latest CO 1580 incarnation, 10 kW ND day power (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 9695, Feb 7 circa 1245, strong and steady open
carrier. O, of course, it`s Greenville-B, not turned off yet after
Vatican`s morning relay in Spanish curtailed to only 15 minutes from
1230; violating Separation of Church & State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 880, Feb 7 at 1408 UT, with KRVN nulled as much as
possible, Spanish M&W chat, bits of norteÃa music, mentions Nuevo
LeÃn, 1412 fading, 1417 back with ID mentioning 880. Loops approx.
SW/NE and my first thought is XEV Chihuahua2, but IRCA Mexican Log
says: XEV has finished moving to FM, but from 2017 there has been a CP
for another station there, XECHEP, 5000/250 watts, EscÃpate al
Paraiso. Unless that`s started up, the only other likely N/W Mexican
this late would be XEPNK, Los Mochis, Sinaloa.

Rather I suspect being faked out again by WIJR Highland IL, which per
NRC AM Log is 1700/160/500 U4 from an address in Overland MO (St Louis
market), as ``La Primera 880 AM, La Raza``. The only other USA SS
possibilities would be WMDB in Nashville TN, rather late for that
further east; and KJOZ Conroe TX but religious in the wrong direxion
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6159-USB, Feb 7 at 0604, 2-way in colloquial Spanish,
INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9354-USB, Feb 7 at 1259, VP 2-way in Spanish? vs carrier
on 9355, i.e. VOA Thailand about to start Deewa Radio to Afghanistan
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 6000, UT Wed Feb 6 at 0238, RHC S9+10 but just barely
modulated, enough to recognize it`s Arnie, during DXers Unlimited; the
sole // 6165, S9 is only slightly louder. Arnie is unwilling or unable
(or unknowledgeable?) to get RHC modulation fixed even when he himself
is trying to communicate. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15111.4, Feb 6 at 1430, JBA carrier, -28.6 kHz spur from
15140, S9+30 RHC, only one obvious today. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 7295, Feb 6 at 1434, usual mix with SAH of
Furusato no Kaze QRMing itself via JAPAN and TAIWAN; 1435 Japan goes
off clearing Taiwan. FnK is also scheduled from 1430 on 9960 via
PALAU, where there is soft YL talk at S9+10; splash from some
downunderite on 9955 evitable by USB tuning. Sounds the same as on
7295, but far from synchronized (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1300, Feb 6 at 1402, Spanish in the QRM with 7:02 TC,
mention Ciudad JuÃrez, temp in C; surely XEP but losing out to Tulsa.
ID not heard but it`s now ``Fiesta Mexicana`` per Tim Hall and WRTH.
No lower XEs being heard this long after LSR, 1329. Its 38 kW day
power helps.

Even earlier and at night I have been hearing zilch from XEROK 800,
with KQCV OKC nulled. XEROK must be back on QRP if on the air at all
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9689.918, Wednesday Feb 6 at 1732, VP carrier, no doubt
VON in English as Dave Kenny, BDXC-UK has just tipped hearing today. I
first heard it on Saturday, not on Sunday, not sure about Monday, but
not even on Tuesday later to het Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1170, Feb 6 at 1400 UT I notice that KFAQ Tulsa goes to
CBS News --- not a network for them in NRC AM Log; I`m sure Wayne will
tell us if that change has already been noted (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690V, Feb 6 at 0025, REE with music, but carrier is
wobbling a bit --- or is it CCI? Only competitor at this hour is KBS
in Vietnamese, doubtful to be heard here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960.003, Feb 6 at 0030, music at S9+10/S8, soon
recognizably Turkish as expected. Will it also be the sporadic German
hour from VOT? Yes, 0034 announcement in German. Very slightly offset
plus; I don`t recall this one ever being found on 5960.7 like so many
other Emirlerians. The point is, the sloppyrators sometimes don`t get
5960 turned off by 2355 when English finishes, letting it run with the
next language on the feed which is not supposed to be on any SW
frequency. If such lapses be totally random, sooner or later it will
happen on Saturday into UT Sunday and clash with The Mighty KBC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.7, Feb 6 at 1420, VOT English off-frequency today,
only VP S5-S6, while better Turkish is close to 11815.0 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 420 kHz, Feb 6 at 0705 I manage to pick out IDs of two NDBs,
each 25 watts: FQ, Fairmont MN; and PK, Olathe-Herbb KS (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7385, Feb 6 at 0333, this WHRI is off, while 7315 and 5920
are on; regarding the 7520 Russian during this hour UT Sundays only, I
had assumed missing 7385 would be on as scheduled the other days of
week, but it isn`t.

Peter Hansen had pointed out that in the B-18 season, WHRI has not
been running more than two transmitters at once, altho they allegedly
have 2 x 500 kW and 1 x 100 kW in SC per WRTH. What happened to the
other one? Note that ``Angels`` 1, 2, 5 and 6, are not individual
transmitters but rather programming streams (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Not that the ignorant, incompetent, corrupt, unqualified,
childish, vain, pink-eyed, minority-``elected`` anti-American, acting
president Drumpf deserve any more mouthpieces, but the State of the
Union address would normally lead to a number of pre-emptions on radio
stations.

So while he`s on TV, Feb 6 at 0244, I start hunting for him. How about
SW --- will any US SW station carry him, such as the vehemently pro-
Trump WBCQ? NO, 7490 is off as usual at this hour; 9330 a JBA carrier,
presumably still TOMBS. 5130.4+ is VP on with else, presumably the ham
show. 5085, WTWW-2 is also on with something else, presumably the
other ham show, but amazingly weak and even bothered by that ute on
5081 which normally it blasts away here. Nor found on any of the other
private US SW frequencies audible, WHRI, WWCR, WRMI, WINB.

Surely the USAGM outlets are Drumpfing, but of course VOA has no
English SW broadcasts at all between 22 and 03 UT! At 0304, however, I
find he is on 6030, Radio MartÃ, with translation. Supposed to be //
7435 but not heard there. BTW, RM is the very first station under USA
International, page 499 of WRTH 2019; why? In 2018 it was the sixth.
And why isn`t it in the clandestine pages, as Cuba would surely agree?

At 0252 I start scanning the MW band, compared to cable TV audio, and
most of the stations are running a good many seconds ahead; one must
pause to allow for the too-frequent applause breaks, which could be
confused with IBOC noise. I`m not digging deeply, as there would
surely be more in the QRM if I tried. Most of the stations are obvious
here without trying to DF or ID them: 570, 600, 700, 770, 780, 790,
820, 850, 870-D, 890-D, 1000, 1040, 1080, 1110, 1160, 1170, 1200,
1420, 1520, 1690. D means audio delayed behind cable TV on those
stations. But many major stations dumped Drumpf, kept with regular
format of talk, sports or music, such as WSM, WSCR, WGN, KRMG, WJR,
WHB, WCCO, WHAS, KOA, KKOW, KRVN, WTAM, KMOX, KWKH, KSTP,
WLAC, WCKY.

Finally before the blather is over, I survey FM: nowhere except on
public radio 88.1 KWOU Woodward, 91.7 KOSU OKC. Even the numerous
gospel huxters aren`t with him! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15196-USB, Feb 6 at 1507, VP 2-way in Spanish, INTRUDERS
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 15700, Feb 4 at 1440, CRI English relay is strong and
distorted: wiggle that patchcord. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15426.045, Feb 4 at 1506, RHC JBA squishyspur measured here,
and the next one about 15397.46, i.e. 28.585 kHz apart, i.e. tenth and
ninth multiples away from source 15140. One on the minus side about
14968.39, i.e. 171.61 kHz below 15140, the sixth multiple. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 4 at 0654, another night with no VON, nor on
9690-. 7255 heard only one night the past week (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 1968, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1967 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
February 3 at 2140, the 2130 on WRMI 7780; poor-fair.

Also confirmed UT Monday February 4 at 0230 on WRMI 5950, S9-S6, but
// 9395 a JBA carrier.

Not confirmed UT Mon Feb 4 circa 0400 on Area 51 webcast; instead the
Zombo music show keeps on playing past 0500; running way late, maybe
distracted by a SBG? At 0431, WBCQ 5130.47 is JBA. WOR must have
started about 0505 since at next check 0513 it`s 8 minutes in. So if
you don`t hear WOR at 0400, stay tuned! [WORLD OF RADIO 1968]

Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 4 at 0430 on WRMI 9955 JBA, but VG on
webcast, once again following ``Hallelujah`` song fill from 0425 and
not finished when I take over.

Also confirmed Mon Feb 4 at 2330 on WRMI 9955, F-G, no jamming yet.

Also confirmed UT Tue Feb 5 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, G-VG.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (5130.47), UT Mon Feb 4 at 0550, WBCQ presumably still on
late along with Area 51 webcast amid `Hobart Radio International`,
which must have started about 0534 instead of 0430, with ``Jordan`s
Corner``, featuring some old DX recordings including KULA, RENB, KYOY
[sic; KYOI]. Apparently Jordan Heyburn, UKOGBANI has moved his segment
here from suspended IBC Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, Feb 4 at 2250 on caradio, RAE relay in Italian; by
2255 it`s over, and Bob Biermann ID claims to be on 9395 (only)! into
gospel music fill until 2300 cut to Blalock the Blaster. It seems that
WRMI is no longer always trying to ID at :59 or :29, even if there is
a break between programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Correct date for the MW bandscan from 2015 UT was Jan 30,
not 20 as typo in original report (gh, DXLD)

** U S A. 770, Feb 4 at 1401 UT, KKOB Albuquerque in well with local
news and traffic, on 50 kW ND a quarter-hour earlier now in February.

660, Feb 4 at 1401 UT, not hearing KTNN at first vs TX/NE?, maybe late
switch to 50 kW ND day, but there it is at 1408 UT in Navajo with lots
of English inserted like ``Senate Indian Affairs Committee``, and 1411
would you believe a Homecare Solutions LLC commercial mostly in
Navajo. Fading out by 1413 while 770 KKOB is still in.

880-CUSB, Feb 4 at 1415 UT, finally getting some KHAC with gospel
huxter in English, KRVN nulled.

Re: "But the DB makes no connexion with KHAC 880, despite a blank
field for // source of programming! Likewise, the NRC AM Log entry for
880 KHAC makes no mention of any FM (nor the very significant fact
that 880 suppresses LSB)."

Wayne Heinen, Editor AM Radio Log, replies: ``Glenn, Addition of
slogan "Western Indian Network" was published in DX News in September
after the Log was completed. Also they are not totally in // with the
FM they have separate programming. The reports I received indicated
that KWIM is generally //KTBA-760``

``Wayne, O yes, I think we had a similar exchange previously. All I
know is that when I logged 880 they were jointly IDing with 104.9``

1000, Feb 4 at 1419 UT, gospel huxter in English making slow SAH with
KTOK OKC nulled as much as possible; i.e. KKIM Albuquerque now on 10
kW ND day power, standard SAH (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1968,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1140, re my report about KCXL, Liberty MO, Raymie Humbert,
AZ, replies Jan 27 on the WTFDA Forum: ``Worth noting that IHR and
Relevant Radio merged in 2017 to create a much larger Relevant Radio,
though Immaculate Heart survived as the licensee`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1270, Feb 4 at 1428 UT, looping NNE/SSW, `Unlocking the
Bible` is finishing (? I have several that are not locked), 1429
``Faith Radio`` ID and promos, ``Sioux Falls at AM 1270``; 1430
Keloland TV Weather Center forecasts highs and lows: +3/-4/+11 F. It`s
KNWC. I am trying to recall the original call of this but FCC AM Query
claims it has always been KNWC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1470, re my report about KWSL, Sioux City IA, Raymie
Humbert, AZ, replies Jan 27 on the WTFDA Forum: ``Alex "El Genio"
Lucas is a national syndicated show`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non?]. 15635, Feb 4 at 1456, here`s something new: speaker
in Arabic just as loud as the voice-over flying translation to
English, maybe live? Defends the Muslim world. Mentions ``holy
father`` and ``my brother the pope``, S9-S5, continues past 1500; 1504
announcer says ``you are listening to Grand Imam ----`` something, and
more. But off at 1510 recheck. Smax of an ad-hoc Vatican Radio
broadcast, but why?

Because pope is visiting UAE, so maybe a live event. Later I see this:

``Vatican Media is going to have two special broadcasts on occasion of
the Papal trip to UAE, namely:

Monday 4th February 2019, UT 1400-1515
15635 kHz, English, to the Gulf / Horn of Africa
11835 kHz, Arabic, to Middle East

Tuesday 5th February 2019, UT 0550-0800
15645 kHz, English, to the Gulf / Horn of Africa
11810 kHz, Arabic, to Middle East``
(Mauno Ritola on WRTH - World Radio Tv Handbook Facebook group,
3 Feb via Alan Pennington, bdxc-news iog)

Guess what: the only 15635 entry in the latest HFCC of Feb 1 is a
``reservation`` by Lviv, Ukraine at 06-08 UT! That`ll be the day.

So is this direct from SMG with typical huge backlobe, if aimed toward
the ME; or is it some other relay such as MADAGASCAR, which could also
provide such a good signal here, unlike much else from E Hemisphere on
19m now?

I suspect the latter, since known SMG site on nearby 15550, the Sudan
Service of FPU, even tho 250 kW at 150 degrees, is much weaker (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 4 at 0700-
0706, performed after noting a het upon 1000 KTOK this late;
presumably from the more westerly Europortions: 621, 747, 855, 908.83
[? local IF birdie?], 999, 1098, 1107(2), 1125(2), 1305 (Glenn Hauser,
