Fixing one of the times in this, 2346*, not 0046*

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, June 5 at 2343, raucous pirate music at S8, stops abruptly at 2346* I leave a receiver on this, and it resumes at 2351:30, mostly percussion and chatter; 2352 brief announcement missed; 2356 unexpected brief CW and off again. A few other logs of this as unID:

** ALASKA [non]. 89.3, June 5 at 1910 UT I happen to tune nearby KIEL Loyal OK, as Ron Myers is talking about the ``Mission Alaska`` project of Radio 74 Internationale, trying to raise money. I only hear the last part of it: To put a 50 kW AM station on the air before the CP expires next January. As if Alaskans have no gospel huxters on radio already. Needs to get work done on the antenna site this summer before everything freezes; but still raising funds of $ 150K to purchase the land. See http://www.radio74.net so I research further:

It`s for 50 kW on 1200 kHz from Chugiak AK. More about it here:
which talks about this to bring Adventist/3ABN programming to Alaska.

Yet this page, https://www.radio74.net/about-us
says ``RADIO 74 INTERNATIONALE is an independent Christian ministry and is not sponsored, regulated or controlled by any denomination or religious organization.``

More, if it will ever load:

NRC AM Log shows 1200 as ``K#8 Chugiak AK U1 50000/9600 new not on air ``. FCC AM Query says licensee is Steve King, and there was correspondence about this dating back to May of 2010. Is 74 trying to acquire the CP from King, or is he the front for 74 all along?

Where is Chugiak? 32 km NE of downtown Anchorage per Wikipedia. On a US map including Okie station, own website also shows they have two other stations in Alaska. The affiliate list can be found under the LISTEN drop-down, which is not a link to webcasts. The AK stations are on FM in Juneau and North Pole (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA. 11580, Monday June 5 at 1320, RAE French relay via WRMI is in DX program, so repeat of Friday show; content and clips seem the same as heard in English version. 1346 recheck, now the DX program is re-starting as the French semihour is aired twice in succession. 1400 into new Spanish relay time, previewing DX program by Arnaldo Slaen again contained in this Monday hour; no mention of this transmission they may not be aware of yet in Bs As, just 22-23 on 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 17875, June 5 at 2347, song at S1 --- so my local noise problem must have abated. Nothing anywhen on 17875 per HFCC, but Aoki reminds us this is the temporary May 17-June 30 frequency for the CNR10 program, at 2300-1300 UT (except 06-09 Tuesday siesta), 100 kW, 15 degrees from Dongfang, Hainan site, so a good azimuth onward for us, and a well-chosen opening. WRTH shows CNR10 is ``Voice of Old Age`` or ``Senior Citizen Radio`` originally on MW 1053 in Beijing, but on SW backup while that is off for maintenance. Glad to know millions of Chineniors must have SW radios!

Weak as it is, 17875 is the SSOB, with nothing but weaker JBA carriers on 17780 (also a temp Dongfang sub, for CNR16) and 17560 (VOA Chinese via Tinang, so likely a CNR1 jammer).

15570, June 5 at 2350, Chinese at S3, i.e. RFA via TINIAN, and I think there were some English inserts, so maybe really this instead of CNR1 jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, June 5 at 2343, raucous pirate music at S8, stops abruptly at 0046* I leave a receiver on this, and it resumes at 2351:30, mostly percussion and chatter; 2352 brief announcement missed; 2356 unexpected brief CW and off again. A few other logs of this as unID:

** PERU. 5980, June 5 at 2333, JJBA carrier from R. Chaski until autocutoff at 2334:11.5. Last catch was six days ago, May 30 until 2333:34.5*, so this is 37 seconds later, averaging 6.2 seconds later per noctem, well in line with the previous recession rate when sign- off was after 0100. Extremely weak signal fading in and out of the noise level makes it hard to be as precise as before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9495, Monday June 5 at 1314, VOA News until 1315 back to WRMI ID and Oldies. So I missed it again, presumably 5 minutes from 1310, but start times vary widely. A good way to get some credible American news on WRMI without cost (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1880 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday June 4 at 0333 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about CHU, so ~8 minutes into show which would have started circa 0325. Also confirmed at 1030 UT June 4 on HLR 9485-CUSB, Germany, by Ivo as weak in Bulgaria. Also confirmed Sunday June 4 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.08v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed here UT Monday June 5 starting at 0302 on Area 51 webcast and presumably WBCQ 5129.82-AM. Also confirmed UT Monday June 5 at 0345 the 0330 airing on WRMI 9955. First checked webcast which has changed URL for the 9955 stream to:
Also confirmed Monday June 5 at 2341, the 2330 airing on WBCQ 9330.12v-CUSB, fair to good. Also confirmed UT Tuesday June 6 after 0030 on the WRMI System D webcast at its new URL (formerly System B for 9955) of
which during this hour is feeding the 7730 transmitter. This also applies to other light-blue blox on 11580, 15770, 5850, depending on the time, but not all the time on any of them. Next WORs:
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 9455 to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455 to WNW
Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 12105 & 9930 & 9475 & 5830, June 4 at 1840, all three WTWWs are OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5810, June 5 at 0535, WEWN Spanish is OFF; while 11520 English is on as usual (and propagating in summer nightmiddle better than in winter). 12050, June 5 at 1427, however, WEWN Spanish is on. Altho only two frequencies at any one time, one Spanish, one English, I was told that different transmitters are used for hi and low bands.

12050, June 5 at 2355, WEWN Spanish QSY announcement, off at 2355.5, and 5810 comes up about 0.5 minute later, much stronger now with Salve Regina. Even if two different transmitters, takes a while to make the antenna switch (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17815, June 5 at 1924, WHRI with gospel huxter musing that he will still have SW ``if they take internet away from us``. Not BS, and not // other TOM stations, but TOM was scheduled this hour M-F on 21610, which this frequency replaced a few weeks ago, altho the WHR schedule still shows 21.610!
Might have been TOM anyway but separate programming from the others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1630, June 4 at 0611 UT, KKGM Fort Worth TX (street address in Dallas; QSL address in Lexington KY per NRC AM Log), is still diffusing dead air, atop KCJJ Iowa making a SAH of about 7 Hz with it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. UT June 6 the 6-m maps are showing Es DX paths into Oklahoma and MUFs into FM, so I start DXing from the porch:

88.1, at 0040 UT, interview about terrorism, soon evident as part of `The World`, and RDS shows: WRJA___, but also has some CCI besides the Okies. At 0058, still/again with same stable RDS ID as The World is outroducing. This is it per WTFDA FM Database: [WRJA-FM, 88.1, SUMTER SC, 98.0 kW H&V, 305 m HAAT, 33-52-52, 80-16-14, 8276, WRJA, PS} South Carolina ETV, Public, SOUTH CAROLINA PUBLIC RADIO, NEWS/TALK] 1617 km/1005 st mi

90.1, at 0047, Es talk CCI to KUCO OK

92.9, at 0048, singing ID as ``Eagle 92.9``, and RDS as _EAGLE__ This is: [WEGX, 92.9, DILLON SC, 100.0 kW H&V, 492.9 m HAAT, 34-22-04, 79-19-21, 5FEB, TODAY'S COUNTRY WEGX EAGLE 92.9, - Country, EAGLE 92.9 COUNTRY] 1691 km/1051 st mi

93.1, at 0050, ``Hot 95-5 and 93-1`` non-ID twice, CCI from baseball. It`s: [WCHZ-FM, //W238AU, 93.1, WARRENTON GA, 4.1 kW H&V, 122.0 m HAAT, 33-29-59, 82-37-09, 5ABF, HOT 95.5/93.1, CLASSIC HIP-HOP] 1427 km/887 st mi

97.1, at 0100, algo by Es briefly squeezed against local 96.9

94.1, at 0102, Es rock, vs over-modulation spikes from local KLGB-LP 94.3, also ruining 94.5, now playing nothing but raucous gospel rock

97.9, at 0104, rock briefly vs 98.1 OKC; 0107 different music CCI

But MUF drops out next few minutes and I quit for now. Finishing writing this report at 0300, I see the MUF is again heavy into FM (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 11700, June 4 at 1439, S Asian songs and talk around S7. HFCC shows Vatican Radio daily 1430 in Hindi via RVA Palauig, PHILIPPINES, followed by 1450 Tamil, 1510 Malayalam, and Saturdays only 1530-1600 English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, June 5 at 2358, ME music at S2, presumably Republic of Yemen Radio, which has not had a usable signal at any hour here since last winter. Keeps going with same thru 0000 hourtop without timesignal or announcement. Altho the Saudis aren`t saying, common assumption that most of this 24-hour service is from a spare transmitter at Jeddah, but there are audio overlaps indicating a site switch at certain times, such as just before 1800. So what is the other one? Nothing definite has come out in the two or three years this has been in service since the Yemeni government was ousted and the civil war enraged.

Another info source not often cited is ITU Monitoring. Large pdf files are posted and updated with rough reports in frequency order, so I consult the current April+ file, and the one before that. Here is what they show for this 11860.000 (always cited as exact, so I am removing the frequency field to save space here). The first and second entries are the monitoring site country and location. Then day/month, UT, field strength dB, ID if any (always misspelling Sana`a), country if any, type of transmission BC for broadcast omitted here, occupied bandwidth, mode of transmission, bearing from the transmitter at the receive site, and accuracy of the bearing (A being best). Coordinates (presumed rather than confirmed? Quite a variety of them, I haven`t traced; perhaps someone else will). Final number if any refers to a column which may be questionable, and comments if any. It`s all much clearer in the original table, once consulting the key to table at the top. I`ve condensed, not leaving blank spaces for fields unfilled.

Note the first entry, from Baldock, UK, which is slightly NE of London. The 122-degree azimuth from Baldock, crosses thru the middle of Yemen itself, only along the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia, which includes Jeddah, and certainly not Riyadh or the UAE, but this is the only entry guessing(?) that the site at the time monitored was UAE. An earlier entry below is the only one that specifies Jeddah transmitter site. I`m afraid a lot of this info is speculation: Another one from France says EGYpt! And one from Russia says ERItrea --- of course these could possibly be totally different stations, but also on 11860.

There could be lots of other gems about unIDs or incomplete IDs in the ITU files if one sift thru them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1820, June 4 at 0613, JBA AM carrier with trace of music. Not overload as still there with R75 preamps 1 and 2 switched off. Could be 2 x 910 harmonic from algo. OR, 2780 minus 960, i.e. mix of my two locals, 2 x 1390 KCRC minus KGWA (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9517.4-USB, June 6 at 0004, Spanish INTRUDERS 2-way at S3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

11734.98 BRAZIL R. Transmundial 1733 end of song then M anncr in
PT. Got ID and e-mail anmnt later. Getting a low level het with
slightly weaker Zanzibar above on 11735. Surprised to hear Transmundial
here as itâs not very common at this time. (Valko 26 May)

9620 AUSTRIA Requiem for Radio (pgm relay via Moosbrunn)
Didnât know it at the time but found the very strong signal at 2352
w/pgm of droning organ mx and other sounds, and gone at 0000 w/out
anmnts. Also hrd on 9690 (Nauen Germany) equally as strong. Youtube
video of reception can be found using this link
https://youtu.be/xByytGjxAXs (Valko 26 May)

6220.01 PIRATE (EUROPE) Laser Hot Hits 0044 Pop mx at t/in.
0046 M anncr tlk between songs. 0050 jingle. Short canned ID by M at
0053 and next song. Had a band of noise on the low side which ruined
reception. Otherwise the best itâs been heard in a long time. (Valko
27 May)

6930U PIRATE (NA) VORW (Voice of the Report of the Week) 0102
continuous chatter by M about fast food restaurants including Krispy
Kreme. 0107 said that that was the âreview of the latest uploadsâ and
mentioned âVORW radio showâ, then continued tlk abt Radio Shack and
shortwave listening. 0112 sound of airplane going overhead, and again
very loudly at 0116 (must have been recording the show at an airport).
0142 another ID. Still going at 0144 reading letters. Fair at best and
noisy. (Valko 27 May)

6850.5 PIRATE (NA) Requiem for Radio (pgm relay via Pirate
Radio Boston) Should have started at 2300 but didnât hear anything
until 2303, then got noticeably stronger a min. later. Pgm of same
droning organ mx and other sounds such as Gregorian chant-like vcls at
2305, and UTEs and number stns, etc. Hrd the other âtracksâ of the pgm
broadcast on 5129.8 (WBCQ), 9620 (Austria), 9690 (Germany), and 11580
(WRMI). WRMI was the best. There were never any anmnts and all went
off around 0000. Pulled out the R-388, NRD-535D, and E1 receivers to
tune in and record each freq. Strung up a temporary 40 foot +/- random
wire for 11580 on the E1. Had the Perseus recording 9620 and 9690 using
the Delta loop antenna, the R-388 tuned to 5129.8 with the Wellbrook
ALA1530S, and this freq on the NRD-535D also using the Wellbrook.
Combined pieces of all freqs/tracks at 2 different times to create the
complete pgm in mono. Here is the link to the combined recording (2313,
2347 UTC) https://app.box.com/s/joq1bs8ndct4168ln6owvioll8dzblxl
Despite the lower 2 freqs being a bit noisy, the final recording came
out pretty well. Here's a link to a recording of all 5 freqs separately
in order https://app.box.com/s/6av2x72fjmco6juc9n21xrsk9s5o4ona (Valko
27 May)

by Thomas Dolby until 0058. 0058 what sounded like a few words from
Statler & Waldorf from The Muppet Show, and ending with George Zeller
saying â"It was really about the worst station I ever heard on
shortwave. In fact it was so bad that it was actually entertaining in
that respect", and off the air. Good signal and 100% copy. Youtube

9810 IRAN V.O. the Islamic Rep. of Iran Fairly strong
signal but extremely weak modulation w/vcl song at 1922 t/in. 1923 EG
ID anmnt by M barely readable. (Valko 2 June)

5985 MYANMAR R. Myanmar Was surprised to find a signal here
at 2301. Nothing else is currently scheduled there at that time. W pgm
host in lang. mixed w/M singing in an almost talking tone and cadence
and also some traditional SE Asian instru. mx. Gradually faded to
inaudibility in abt half an hour and practically gone by 0000 as it
should as morning progressed there. Checked a web rx in Khimki Russia
and a decent signal there with the same pgming. Myanmar âlong pathâ is
very rare here, and especially so, being so close to the solstice.

reception here and in Khimki Russia with clips of reception here being
weaker, of course). (Valko 2 June)

11870 ALASKA KNLS (New Life Station) Caught the closing EG ID
by M w/sked for EG pgming at 1254, one last Pop song, some deadair, then

6924.4 PIRATE (NA) Recycle R. 2316 closing ID, âGlory Glory
We Adore Theeâ, then SSTV. Weak but SSTV fairly strong. Looked like he

before. (Valko 3 June)

6880U PIRATE (NA) Clever Name R. 2318 end of mx and ID

turned up here and did indeed hear mx at 0035 but couldnât recognize the

ID by YL âWRRI ??, WRRI, R. Random Int.â and immediately into R.
Australiaâs âWaltzing Matildaâ IS, then off. (Valko 4 June)

6925.28 PIRATE Ion R. Surprised to find this Pirate on the air
in the early morning w/Pop/Rock mx when I tuned in at 1223. 1225
apparent comedy skit ending w/live M voice ID sounding like âYouâve been
listening to Ion R. ionradioshortwave@gmail.com.â Then âBeautiful
Sundayâ by Daniel Boone and âLove is in the Air by John Paul Young, âIon
Radioâ Morse code ID at 1233, âMagicâ by Pilot, e-mail addr in code at
1240, âThunderstuckâ by AC/DC, and several Blues songs. 1254 e-mail in
code again, and ended w/SSTV scan. Poor w/quick QSB and a lot of lcl
QRM. Youtube video of reception can be found using this link
