Logs
** BRAZIL. 4894.925 approx., March 11 at 0224, music at S6 vs CODAR, so R. Novo Tempo is back; had not been able to detect it for a few nights, on signature off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 7850-CUSB, March 11 at 0212, CHU is JBA at S5 = the background noise level, in degraded MUF; 3330-CUSB at 0233: OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, March 11 at 0222, R. Rebelde is off again, and so are the leapfrogs on 5010 & 5055 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4027-USB, UT Sat March 11 at 0229, MARS net mostly weak signals, with truncated suffices fonetikaly: NCS is NC1, with stronger 4RO, discussing agenda for this evening, probably to be finished by hourtop. SC1 asks if AAR4DV is on the roster? No, but will be added, etc., etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.02-AM, UT Sat March 11 at 0204, I tune WBCQ in after the first hour of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, when he`s more likely getting down to business. Yes, mentions that the ``nifty 3250 transmitter is not ready yet, a spring project for 80 meters``, and that he`s now simulcasting on 5130. NO, I check 5129.8v-AM and some kind of drama with music is running. Among the anomalies of the online program schedule, this hour, 02-03 UT Sat on 5130 is unaccounted for, nothing shown, before 03-04 UT `Open Your Eyes [no comma] People`. (By 0206, no signal audible on 9330; in fact, 31m is almost dead, and even more so, 25m.)

Had I listened during the first hour, I would have noted something like this, per John H Carver, Jr., Mid-North Indiana: ``In what is becoming the norm lately, AWWW stopped in midsentence at approximately seventeen minutes past the top of the hour and went to music. Quick check of 5130 yielded Brother Scare. Approximately thirty-five minutes after the top of the hour AWWW appeared again in the middle of a sentence, not the sentence it ended with. 5130 check at that time revealed AWWW there also.``

Back to 7490.02, at 0213, AW rementions that he wrote The Donald offering to divest and serve as an FCC commissioner, his goal being to institute an ``amateur broadcast band`` at the top end of AM, for lowpower stations by individuals, i.e. sanxioned and not piratical. I was waiting for him to mention a reply from acting president Trump, but apparently he has not heard from him, much less appointed as yet.

At 0227 after benedixion, AWWW finishes with another playback tribute of the late Mike Scheidtmann (sp?), when he subbed for AWWW on ``Your Natural Station``, Friday November 11, 2005, opening and closing; canned WBCQ promo by AW before rejoining Brother Scare (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, March 1 at 0257, WRMI is good with R. Prague relay at S9+30, presumably // inaudible 11580, talking English about string theory, closing with a .cz website just in time for 0259.5 Spanish ID and 0300 into R. TaiwÃn Internacional relay. O o, David Goren and I were expecting a replay of last week`s `Shortwave Shindig`. RTI`s original frequency, 5985 presumably still //, unchecked now.

9395, March 1 at 0257, tune-in early for scheduled replay of `Shortwave Shindig`. Instead of Oldies music, it`s a gospel huxter in English, ``5 minutes left in this live broadcast``, but only S5 and not completely readable. I can tell he`s over-confident, referring to Psalms, but also pushing a catalog of survivalist gear, ``Redneck`` this & that; 0257 gospel song. What in the world is this? Not of course // TOM. Could be `Evangelical Holiness` as sked until 0300 UT Sat on inaudible 9955.

Unlike 6855, which stayed with TaiwÃn this week instead of David Goren`s show, 9395 does switch to that after an 0259.5 Bob Zanotti ID, 0300 fading down, but I eventually recognize some of the classic interval signals the Shindig show opened with. I`m afraid the repeat this week will not be of much audibility either, on only one frequency hit by MUF plunge, and since I heard the whole thing last week online, do not try any further (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** ASCENSION. 6005 & 7415, March 10 at 0550, two defective transmitters with different programming radiate exactly the same pitch hum: 6005 with BBCWS, 7415 with Dandal Kura for Nigeria; third one on 7445, much stronger BBCWS, is humless (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 3330 & 7850, March 10 at 0551, CHU missing from both frequencies again. Is being quite unreliable: Canadians may have to cross the border to find out what time it is, exactly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5055 & 5010, March 10 at 0556, the leapfrog mixing spurs are back, denoting that 5040 RHC and 5025 Radio Rebelde, both in Spanish, are both from the same site again. Presumably they are swapping around transmitters trying to get one to work reliably on 5025, which is often silent. Rebelde programming now sounds like bÃisbol, if live, a very late, multi-inning game? and with distorted modulation on 5025 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1-FM, March 10 circa 1850 UT on caradio, KAMG-LP Enid is on again, but still unmodulated; why bother? Still dead air on PL-880 at 0033 UT March 11 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 9550, March 10 at 0605, VOA news outro in English, S6. This frequency in use for one hour only, at 124 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4724-USB, March 10 at 0559, robotic but probably human YL voice with requisite heavy reverb says, ``This is Raincoat, out``, no doubt following one of those lengthy alfanumeric coded messages some US military agency sends out here periodically (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1868 monitoring: confirmed Thursday March 9 at 2130 on WRMI 11580, good with some deep fades. (Followed 2200 by `La Rosa de Tokio`, a program block still not accounted for on the grid, but apparently everything on 5950 at 2200-2300 is also on 11580.)

WOR also confirmed UT Fri Mar 10 after 0030 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, very poor. Also confirmed Fri Mar 10 at 2230 on WRMI 11580, S9+10, JBA // on 5950, and NOT // on 6855 but JBA music and undermodulated. Also confirmed UT Saturday March 11 at 0030 on WBCQ 9329.9v-CUSB, poor. Next:
Sat 0730 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW
Sat 1530 HLR 7265-CUSB to WSW
Sat 2030v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND

Sun 0410v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to SW

DST shifts one UT hour earlier start here for some but not all:

Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE

Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490) WBCQ via webcast, UT Friday March 10 at 0000, second episode of Bill Tilford`s `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot` of music, followed 0030 by a repeat of `Camp Constitution Radio`, far-right politix, replacing leftist `Broad Spectrum Radio`. `CCR` is originally scheduled Tue 0030. Last week, a repeat of its preceding `Furthermore 29-54` occupied 0030 UT Fri.

BSR has been off WBCQ for a few weeks. Homepage http://www.broadspectrumradio.com is devoted to fundraising in a variety of ways, in order to stay on the air, but I wonder if it`s still on the air anywhere. The KTLR 890 OKC spot has also been dropped; and Unique Radio NSW is totally off the air. No up to date info to be found on BSR scheduling, and the WBCQ time is still shown in CDT, which henceforth would have been correct again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330, March 10 at 0607, WBCQ inaudible if on with BS allegedly scheduled, while BS on 7490v-AM is poor, 5129.8v-AM very poor. Program schedule at http://schedule.wbcq.com/ *still* has not been updated to show all the extra BS which began weeks ago. From this you would not know he`s on 9330 at all, or more than the previous bihour on 5130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, March 10 at 1428, classic rock from WRMI-6 at 355 degrees. Schedule grid now labels this as Oldies, 24 hours (tho we heard Brother Scare now & then). And gray shading for this System G is now identified as `Oldies with Bob Biermann`, for more information see http://www.oldies.com --- don`t bother, that`s a music sales site with an AC 610 phone in Pennsylvania, no real connexion with Biermann? But possibly source of the music feed. I`ve yet to hear him identify any of the music played like a real DJ, just canned IDs and promos.

9395: reminder that per David Goren, another try UT Saturday March 11 at 0300-0600 // 6855 for WRMI to broadcast the complete `Shortwave Shindig` from last week`s SWL Fest, and then two hours of SW radio art from Wavefarm, which lost feed after 0435 last Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, new show on WRMI, `Las Noches con Mirka`, which I monitored last Friday March 3 at 2200-2300, colloquial Cuban exile chat, I now see has been added to the WRMI skedgrid, not only for this hour, henceforth 2100-2200 but also Mon & Wed at 2100-2200, plus Sundays at 2130-2230. Other weekdays at 5-6 pm EST/EDT, various other programs now shown rather than the never acknowledged prepeats of Radio Libertad in addition to two hours later. But it may take a while for the DentroCuban Jamming Command to quit jamming the earlier hour, if ever, since Tuesday programs are also Cuban if not overtly clandestine, Bajo el Sol de Miami, y Trova Libre (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1020, KMMQ Plattsmouth, NE: regarding my log of this station mentioning ESPN Deportes, Wayne Heinen, NRC AM Log Editor, checked with Andy Ruback of the NRG group in Omaha owning it, who says it is still same format as before, ``Regional Mexican``. Local DXers Carl Mann and Rick Dau agree. So what I heard must have been a fleeting reference for some reason (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1450, March 10 at 0619 UT bandscan on the E-W antenna, briefly atop the mush is an ad with an address in Portales, so it`s KSEL NM, which is only 950 instead of the usual 1000 graveyard watts. KSEL is on the ``second ring`` of 1450 stations from here beyond Woodward and Altus, along with KLMX Clayton NM. Portales distance 344 miles = 553 km (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [and non]. 13765 & 11625, March 10 at 1725-1727* weak carriers on frequencies where Vatican Radio is scheduled in French to Africa via SMG and Madagascar respectively. Checked following another confusing and erroneous press report that SW to Africa had already ceased as ``bishops are asking for it to resume``!! Also confirmed by Wolfgang BÃschel, Noel Green, Kai Ludwig (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11435-USB, March 10 at 1427, presumed Indonesian pirates somewhat melodic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** AUSTRALIA. 11980, March 9 at 1400, RBA is S9+10 despite aiming 310 degrees toward S Asia, with Irish reel, 1402 traditional Chinese instrumental tune, 1405 finally signing on with a hint of kookaburra from Kununurra, but surely not Jacko, and into proselytizing.

So the initial 1400-1405 with neat music is the best and only time to listen to RBA. In fact, Aoki shows the English span is 1405-1435, never mind the lead-up. Same every day? Long ago they emitted a different medley (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11855.46V, March 9 at 0510, ghostly R. Aparecida with its varying signal just barely modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 3330, 7850 & 14670, March 9 at 0537, CHU inaudible on any of its frequencies, but 0648 recheck, 7850-CUSB back on at S9+10, still no 3330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 4900, March 9 at 1350, Voice of Strait in Chinese music at S5-S8 on newish secondary frequency; same signal level in Chinese talk on 4940 original frequency; an hour after sunrise here, best Asian signals remaining on 60m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 6010.16v, March 9 at 0519, S9+15 tropical music, from The Voice of Thy Conscience. If it has a religious theme, not obvious.

5910.21, March 9 at 0519, S9+20 tropical music, very similar to 6010+ but not //, from AlcaravÃn Radio, sibling HJDH station, as usual stronger and sounding quite louder. This is enough to splash upon 5915, cf ZAMBIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, March 9 at 0512, R. Rebelde is S9+30 of dead air, still so at 0522. Meanwhile, 5040 RHC is nominal, but these two are no longer producing even a carrier on the 5010 & 5055 leapfrogs. Therefore, they are no longer from the same transmitter site, back to separate ones, as was the case until the spurs showed up again a few weeks ago. OR: they have managed to suppress the intermodulation, unlikely of any concern whatsoever, when they can`t even keep all their transmitters running and well-modulated where they are supposed to be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6270, March 9 at 0525, RHC English at S6, leapfrog mixing product of // 6060 over 6165 another 105 kHz higher. Hadn`t heard this for months despite frequent chex, perhaps because the three had not been from same transmitter site. Maybe still not before 0500 when 6060 is allegedly in Spanish, but often off, and sometimes English. The opposite `frog should land on 5955, yet to be heard tho sometimes there is remnant jamming vs long-gone R. RepÃblica, 5954 Costa Rica (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ECUADOR. 6050, March 9 at 0523, no signal from HCJB, so their 24-hour testing may be concluded (or during a 5-minute hiatus?). Ultimate operational schedule from new Pichincha transmitter as yet unknown, to be *0830-0500*, as originally, or less, as lately? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 5935, Thursday March 9 at 1259, rapid tone pulse jamming already vs S8-S6 open carrier, 1300 Sea Breeze opening in weekly English, with usual piano music and intensely earnest YL, so still not QSYed. As I understand it, only a handful of Japanese were allegedly abducted many years ago by DPRK, their offspring to become sleeper agents (even one is too many) but Japanese reaxion with all these broadcasts many years later seems to be overkill (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 730, March 9 at 1309, Spanish federal PSA for the CÃmara de Diputados, and another one, then full ID for XEHB AM 730, 50,000 watts y XHHB FM 102.1(?), 25,000 ERP ``en efectivo``, with street address in Hidalgo del Parral, Chihuahua, ``sÃlo Ãxitos en Fiesta EstÃreo``. WRTH 2017 still has the old ``Ke Buena`` slogan and no FM //. Or is it 107.1 as in IRCA Mexican Log 2015?

Yes, WTFDA FM Database, which now includes Mexico, shows 107.1 is really XHEHB-FM in nearby San Francisco del Oro, Chihuahua, Estereo Fiesta, but fails to show // 730 XEHB. The real XHHB FM is 94.7 in Hermosillo; the E`s are inserted to avoid duplication as AM stations are forced to start migrating to FM, but are easily missed in hearing or even speaking.

I started bandscan upward from 540 a few minutes earlier, already after our sunrise at 1251, and this is the first Mexican still audible, despite horrible splash from 740 KRMG on 50 kW day power (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 870, March 9 at 1313, XETAR hasn`t quite faded out yet, in indigenous language with some Spanish number-words, LV de la Sierra Tarahumara, Guachochi, Chihuahua, as long as WWL is nulled, still strong. Far from the border, this daytimer will keep signing on at 1300 UT until DST overtakes April 2 for *1200, when our sunrise will then be circa 1210 UT, maybe reaudiblizing XETAR for a bit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1000, March 9 at 1320 UT, KTOK OKC, mentions ``the late Mike McCarville``, who had a morning talkshow here. Yes, he just died yesterday. Another conservative I never listened to. Here`s a story:
http://www.allaccess.com/net-news/archive/story/163475/

``McCarville [portrait] --- Condolences to family and friends of longtime OKLAHOMA radio talk show host and political commentator MIKE MCCARVILLE, who died TODAY (3/8) at 76, according to a post at his website.
http://mccarvillereport.com/archives/43933

MCCARVILLE, most recently proprietor of "THE MCCARVILLE REPORT" political blog, was a host and PD at KTOK-A/OKLAHOMA CITY and a commentator for KOSU/STILLWATER and KGWA/ENID; he also filled in on NRANEWS.COM's talk shows online and on SIRIUSXM RADIO. He was a former reporter for THE OKLAHOMAN and THE TULSA TRIBUNE, among many other papers and publications. and an Assistant News Director for CBS affiliate KWTV/OKLAHOMA CITY.

In the post on THE MCCARVILLE REPORT, Contributing Editor JASON DOYLE ODEN wrote, "It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that our friend MIKE MCCARVILLE is no longer with us on Earth. After struggling with an illness, he has gone to his deserved rest. That familiar laugh and smile are now part of Heavenâs domain. It is the image of that twinkle in MIKEâs eyes and his quick offer of a cup of coffee that haunt me as I write this piece to stay [sic] goodbye to the man who was my boss, my mentor and best of all, my friend."``

Then weather by Emily Sutton, of KFOR-TV. Lots of TV weatherpersons have side deals with various radio stations, extra cash, or it is just part of the TV jobs for promotion? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 7285, March 9, S9+25 at 0528 tune-in, Radio Sonder Grense once again in English, woman being interviewed by man about gender discrimination (for Int`l Women`s Day?), 0529 interviewer switches to Afrikaans; she is Prof. Amanda something, and they continue alternating; 0530 Afrikaans with ``S-A-U-K`` ID in passing, music.

BTW, SAUK/SABC is a horrible place, as Bill Bingham keeps us updated with press about it, lately referenced in DXLD yg and WOR 1868:
https://www.techcentral.co.za/sabc-report-reads-like-a-horror-story/72338/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UKRAINE [non]. 11580, Thursday March 9 at 1352, presumed RUI relay as scheduled via WRMI, in a narrative story with classical music about an artist and a hand model, then about a bird. Turkishish music follows with no program outro or station ID until 1359.5 automation fires Bob Zanotti WRMI ID. If it is RUI, not properly packaged for a 29.5 minute slot.

I check the WRMI server, and find this is the ``Thursday`` broadcast uploaded March 3, last Friday, only one week out of date. Anyhow every day, all the news seems to be about Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine. `Reading Lounge` is the program which started at 1346:30. However, this file is exactly 30:00 long and the reading is still going when cut off, so the Turkishish music must have been WRMI fill a bit early (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1867 monitoring: confirmed first SW broadcast of 1230 UT Thursday March 9 on 9955, checked at 1250 good S9+10 and no jamming, while // 6855 is JBA. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, March 9 at 0526, WRMI with Brazilian music during World Music, but rather distorted modulation as this unit continues to have problems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505.0, March 9 at 0536, dead air at S9-S7, suspected WRNO transmitter still on. Unless it`s a ute; no other broadcaster scheduled. Before I can hear it long enough to witness continuous variation, it cuts off. WRNO sked continues to be quite erratic, including just when it`s in Chinese, as noted by Ron Howard. Aoki never got around to changing the nominal span for standard time to 0200-0500, rather than 0100-0400, which will soon be in vigor again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 910, March 9 at 1316 UT, loops WSW/ENE, listener comments on phone separated by beeps, turns out to be a promo for calling 623-9100, for ``Noalmark Broadcasting Group and 93.7 The Beep``. Opinion format culled from voice mails? Suspect it`s KKBE NM, soon confirmed by PSA for City of Roswell, other ads. (No sign of KVIS OK yet.)

WTFDA FM Database shows as to be expected, 93.7 is a mere 250 watt translator wagging this 5 kW dog: ``K229BV // KKBE 910 93.7 ROSWELL NM 0.0 0.25 0.0 5.3 33-23-55 104-31-18 `NEWS TALK 910` NEWS/TALK`` No such slogan listed, but ha2, it`s not really ``The Beep`` despite the beeps, but ``The Beat`` according to Wikipedia with ``rhythmic contemporary`` format, whatever that mean. 910 was originally KBIM, which led to KBIM-TV channel 10, and its original full-power KBIM-FM was 97.1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1020, March 9 at 1322 UT, with KOKP morning non-sports talkshow nulled, Spanish making slow SAH, and ``ESPN Deportes`` ID in passing, then Omaha traffic report and weather. It`s KMMQ Plattsmouth NE on 50 kW day power, last known as ``La EstaciÃn de la Raza`` in NRC AM Log 2016-2017. No sign of the other SS on 1020 now, 50 kW KCKN Roswell NM, despite just hearing 910 KKBE, so presumably that broke down again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, March 9 at 1407, Republic of Yemen Radio (via SAUDI ARABIA?), with pop music in Arabic, S9+10, better than usual; last few days was very poor. 1413 into triumphal music and some talk past 1425. (Meanwhile our other source of good ME music in the morning, Denge Kurdistane on 11600 just as good via Pridnestrovye, has only been talk in Kurdish.)

11860 was first reported Oct 20, 2015, and an extensive roundup of initial info and speculation about source was in
http://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1547.txt
And we still don`t know for sure which transmitter sites are involved, but surely more than one depending on time of day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 5915, March 9 at 0517, very poor carrier with some modulation, presumably ZNBC1, managing to stay on air an hour past sunrise, and not quite faded out yet. Only other listee at this time is Myanmar, but it`s midday there. Would you believe that even on USB tuning, this is bothered by splash from 5910.2 Colombian music?

** CUBA. 5025, March 7 at 0656, R. Rebelde is back on after absence at previous check 0102; also on is 6060 with RHC ending English, so much for my theory about transmitter swapping. 6060 and all the other English frequencies are soon in dead air well before 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 11868.4 & 11351.6, March 8 at 2130, spurblobs from MWV 11610 Chinese at plus/minus 258.4 kHz approx., still here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1868, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Tue Mar 7 at 2139, WRMI with clip of R. Santa Cruz, Bolivia, recorded last July, and a log of Radio EducaciÃn also from July. I guess these are part of `Frecuencia al DÃa` scheduled now; old episode? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9777.77-USB, March 8 at 1411, 2-way intruders in Spanish, one with ``engine noise`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11995, March 7 at 2141, hilife music, good signal, break at 2142, a little more, then cut off at 2143*. What`s this? Registered 19-22 is RFI Issoudun, French to Africa. Wasn`t this once an Africa Number One, Gabon frequency? Dream on (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12014.576. March 7 at 2147, open carrier at S9; O, it`s that pervasive RTTY intruder which resumes shortly, but whence? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
