Logs
** BANGLADESH. 15505, Oct 3 at 1358, Bangladesh Betar carrier very poor at S2-S5, but stronger than usual, enough to perceive the IS starting at 1359:30, and the 5+1 pip mis-timesignal not ending until 1400:41.5! as Urdu service opens (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, Oct 3 at 0636, this RHC English is AWOL again, still on the others, 6100, 6060, 6000; ahh, redundancy! Something is always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 6170, Oct 3 at 1327, RNZI still here, not yet moved to 5980 as registered if that is really a plan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1898, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.93, Oct 3 at 0635, Voice of Nigeria is S9+10 but just barely modulated, presumably Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 9890, Oct 3 at 2359, B-B-C- chimes very poor. It`s SINGAPORE, 250 kW at 330 degrees, about to start a semihour in Myanmarianese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. All frequencies of WRMI OFF the air at 0632-0635 UT check October 3: 5850, 7570, 7730, 7780, 9395, 9455, 9955, 11580 all inaudible (tho 9 & 11 MHz might have faded out); Other US stations on 5, 6 and 7 MHz are still audible. Reawake at 1326, they are all still off except for very poor signals on 9395, 9455, not WRMI?

11825, Oct 3 at 1329, good dead air presumably WRMI about to come back? No, from 1330 it`s KSDA GUAM signing on in Thai!

9455, Oct 3 at 1342, open carrier, so WRMI starting to come back, then some music; others still off except JBA carrier on 9395.

9455 // weaker 9395, Oct 3 at 1401, now in `The Power Hour` with paranoid commentary about the Deep State, paedophilia, Trump in danger? Still, no other frequencies.

Next check at 1427 Oct 3, now // 7780 is very poor as usual; 9955 back with BS; 11580 back with Argentina in Spanish, 11825 BS; 21525 JBA with Radio Africa. Then I check WRMI FB to find what Jeff is saying:

``WRMI Radio Miami International --- 1130 UTC Tuesday October 3 - WRMI is experiencing an unusual power outage, perhaps caused by the recent Hurricane Irma damage in the area. All of our transmitters are off the air except for 9395 kHz on low power. Florida Power & Light is investigating and repairing the problem at this time and we hope to be back on the air soon. Our live stream of 9955 kHz is online on our website, wrmi.net and via services such as TuneIn.

1400 UTC Tuesday October 3 - OK, our power has just returned and we will be bringing all of our transmitters back on the air within a few minutes. Some overhead power lines in the area of our transmitter site, possibly damaged by Hurricane Irma, fell to the ground. Florida Power & Light fixed the lines just a few minutes ago``

He has also added dozens of photos from HFCC B-17 in Cape Town.

I pause in WOR 1898 produxion to check 9955, October 3 at 2054 to discover what extra program is on at 2030 Tuesday: another gospel huxter in English, unknown which (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** BOLIVIA [and non]. 5935, Oct 2 at 2336, cannot detect any carrier from R. Yura, altho noise level is not so bad tonight; nor at 2356 just before WWCR blasts on. Yet I am getting various S. American off-frequencies including 5952.46, Pio Doce, which was missing the last two nights. Colombia is but a JBA carrier on 5910.33. Have not seen any South American logs of Yura since Claudio Galaz` on Sept 22. On his clip, sounds like frequency is announced as ``6,236`` rather than 5936. What do you think:
https://archive.org/details/5935KhzR.Yura

It would be helpful if DXers down there would report non-logs of stations like this, i.e. when heard before and should be audible if on. Art Delibert in Maryland, however, tells me, ``Glenn â I heard a VERY weak het on 5935 in the period leading up to 0000 [presumably Oct 1 into Oct 2]. Itâs back again tonight (2348 Oct 2), but again very weak. Regards, Art Delibert`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA. 6024.98, Oct 2 at 2338, JBA carrier, suspected Red Patria Nueva (ex/a.k.a. Radio Illimani), and maybe an even weaker second carrier closer to 6025.00 --- that would be 100 kW from Tibet. RPN is tough here and I`ve never really heard it well. Also getting Cuban Commie jamming bleed from 6030. Valko had RPN on 6024.9 this July, in the morning. Also some more logs from 2015 & 2014 on 6024.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 17559.96, Oct 3 at 0009, Chinese could be VOA Tinang this hour only, or CNR1 jammer; I`m afraid that this VOA site would more likely be off-frequency; very poor but almost the OSOB except for a JBA carrier on 17490 which would be CRI Beijing site unjammed in Cantonese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9618 approx., Oct 2 at 2354, Cuban-style pulse jamming at the rate of 4 per second, against nothing, inexplicable and unseems unrelated to the walls of noise on 9565 and 9955; but jamming transmitters can also output spurs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12090, Oct 2 at 2344, JBA carrier, presumed RHC leapfrog of 11670 over 11880 another 210 kHz higher, as previously logged; nothing else scheduled on 12090. Also a trace of modulation on 12020, which would be 11880 over 11950 another 70 kHz beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Oct 2 at 2352, very poor music // bit stronger 9935, ERT back on both frequencies. No one else uses 9935, but China and Iran might be on 9420, such as China right now with CNR per HFCC; Iran at other times if Kamalabad were still operational, for a couple of imaginary English broadcasts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940.0-USB, Oct 2 at 2341 rock music, 2342 `Goin` up in Smoke` bluesy, 2343 percussive interlude, 2350 with some talkovers I can`t understand; still past hourtop into Oct 3, at 0003 YL plugs HFUnderground.com; 0009 ``Jihad Radio, your local radio staiton, Jihad Radio, to blow you sky-high``, Britishish accent, and off, or rather pause, 0010 siren, and off again. Started out as Clever Name Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,37733.0.html
also with more about the Jihad Radio parody program from 2013-2014y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, Oct 2 at 2325, JBA carrier from Radio Chaski until autocutoff at 2330:38* --- but then an even weaker carrier cuts back on, I think, rather than being uncovered. All A-season there has been nothing else on 5980 at this hour (not even a WWCR mixing product which online skeds fail to include later).

I`m suspecting R. Chaski`s transmitter has decided to keep its exciter going, perhaps unnoticed by the humans in charge (who don`t even need to notice the cutoffs when they happen). Still at 2351 check but not at 2359.

Or, has something else appeared there? Better check the latest HFCC, Aoki and EiBi. HFCC has nothing new at this hour; however, RNZI has registered 5980 starting at 1300, which would replace 6170; maybe backup, alt or wooden. Don`t think it has really happened yet.

No, nothing else in EiBi or NDXC/Aoki. However, unlike HFCC, they remind us that 5980 is one of the Scandinavian Weekend Radio frequencies from Finland on the first Saturdays, but not at this hour; Aoki also is outdated for the Chaski sign-off as 0103, which was earlied a sesquihour some months ago, as in EiBi until 2341, which is about the latest I ever got it before recessing autocutoff time.

Speaking of which, today`s time of 2330:38* is 7 seconds later than yesterday until 2330:31* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed Monday October 2 just after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.20v-CUSB, good S9+20. Also confirmed UT Tuesday October 3 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, VG S9+30. NEW WOR 1898 should be ready for first airings Tuesday Oct 3 at 2130 on WRMI 9455 if not 15770, 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Monday Oct 2 at 2030, filling in another blank in WRMI`s new schedule: `Reality [sic] in Jesus`, Denver PA, dedicated to the end-times mythology. Only other known time on sked is Saturday 1130 on 9955. Now to check Tuesday if I can pull away from WOR recording session (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11802.00-USB, Oct 2 at 2347, INTRUDERS, colloquial Spanish 2-way about ``14 kilos, puta-madre``, plus whistling, engine noise, ``no pescan allÃ``; ``cambio`` to much weaker contact. So is he talking about dope smuggling or fishing? You don`t fish from an airplane (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 6145, Oct 2 at 0543, now it`s this RHC English frequency which is off, remaining on 6100, 6060, 6000 during music --- but the last of The Cuban Five, 5040 is in wrong language, Spanish! with sports report. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Oct 2 at 0539, RNZP/RNZI is here, despite online sked showing nothing during this hour. Starting at 0359, 11725 must be running two hours instead of one, before 9630 take over at 0559. As of 1515 UT October 2, ``How to Listen`` sked has still not been corrected (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [and non]. 6075.520, Oct 2 at 1420, VP signal in Chinese? talk, vs a weaker carrier on 6075.00. NDXC/Aoki, which refuses to bother with precise frequencies, shows RTI in Chinese on ``6075`` at 1400-1700, which is certainly being *jammed; more likely RTI is the one off-frequency, altho that hardly helps. NDXC/Aoki also lists an unID CNR station on ``6075`` at 2100-1500. I try to // 6075.520 to any of the numerous CNR frequencies on 49m and higher bands, many of them jammers, but all are just too weak to make a match on second receiver (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13564-CW, Oct 2 at 1429, GNK beacon is very poorly audible vs CODAR. This is in Madison WI, last logged Feb 16, despite almost daily random scans of the 13550-13570 band --- Just one day since I also heard K6FRC one kHz higher after a long break. LWCA roster shows:

13563.99, GNK, Madison WI, 10 wpm last reported in August
13565.035, K6FRC Patterson CA, 10 wpm last reported in July
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1897 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday October 2 at 0300 on Area 51 webcast, and also audible at 0327 before conclusion on WBCQ 5130.33, fair S9+10 (but not on 3250). Also confirmed after 0330 UT Monday Oct 2 on WRMI webcast, but 9955 is very poor in noise level. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1080, October 2 at 0235 UT, KRLD Dallas TX ending CBS TV `60 Minutes` segment I saw earlier about the Webb space telescope (lacking stunning visuals!); 5 minutes of local radio ads; 0240 UT resume next 60M story about a millionaire teen soccer star, in this crazy world of ours. Anyhow, CBS-owned radio station is playing audio track of the TV show at 0200 UT Mondays, 3 hours after nominal original telecast (but which was delayed a semihour due to a different stupid ballgame). IIRC some CBS radio stations used to run this closer to original airtime 6 pm CT Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, October 2 at 1317, KYND Cypress/Houston TX is still running the ``please buy time here`` loop like yesterday, beneath modulating KOKC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15344.076, Oct 2 at 1433, JBA carrier. Such an off-frequency immediately brings to mind RAE Argentina, and also Morocco, both of which have been gone from SW for months and years respectively. Yet NDXC/Aoki still lists a full schedule for RAE! No other stations are on 15345 at anyhour per that, HFCC and EiBi.

RAE was going to reactivate as soon as they could get replacement parts, but if so, it`s no better than it used to be. Seems to fade, but this could also be from a local device, so others please check for anything around 15344 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
