** CUBA. Feb 2 from 1452 I survey the galaxy of JBA wobblespurs out of
RHC 15140: quickly these are estimates based on approx. zero-beating,
rather than precise measurements: 15397.45, 15368.85, 15311.62,
15283.1, 15025.4, 14968.35, 14939.75, 14911.1, 14882.57=stronger,
14853.91, 14825.34, 14796.75, 14768.1.

Now the separations between them, skipping a few spots: 28.60, 57.23,
28.52, 257.7, 57.05, 28.60, 28.65, 28.53, 28.66, 28.57, 28.59, 28.65.
The lowest one heard, 14768.1, is 13 x 28.6077! Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370-AM, Feb 2 at 2056, RHC has resumed FM transmissions out
of this AM transmitter at multiple points across the 19m band. The
closests are quite strong S9 and broad about 10 kHz wide with almost
full quieting, so hard to pinpoint center carriers. 15505 noted first,
then 15435, 15304, 15235, 15167, 15102, 15037, 14968, 14898. The
intervals are somewhere between 65 and 70 kHz. All accompanied by
signature F# tone above Cmiddle, and the only giveaway for the very
weakest at the outer limits.

Service is in French and // 15140, which unlike in the morning with
multiple JBA spurs, is not the source of this bunch. At 2102 I search
for higher ones: approx. 15569, 15637, and measure the top two:
15703.41 and 15772.34. The last one is +402.34 kHz from 15370, and = 6
x 67.05, while the next one is 5 x 66.68 away.

Then at 2103 I notice that the strongest spurs are equally clear when
tuned in AM mode as in FM --- how do they do that? Notably 15435,
15505, 15305, 15235. At 2131, language has switched to Portuguese and
15140 has gone off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5990, Feb 3 at 0116, S9+10/20; obviously the sloppyrators at
RadioCuba have failed to turn off the CRI relay transmitter before
0100. Too bad that RHC English next door on 6000 is notably weaker,
only S9+10 but suptorted; while // 6165 is sufficient. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FINLAND [non]. 5980, Feb 2 at 1740, it`s the first Saturday and tnx
to a reminder from Manuel MÃndez, Spain, since I have UTwente running
about Nigeria/Spain clashing 9690, I also check for the monthly
Scandinavian Weekend Radio 100-watt broadcast when it is supposed to
be on 5980 and 11720: nothing heard on 11720, and 5980 fully occupied
by Turkey with a crazy-wild silly ballgame in Turkish (same one as on
Spain?). 6170 trace of a signal but that could be VOK; nothing heard
on 11690 either. SWR has previously been reported slightly off-
frequency which might be helpful in differentiating it from the
competition. But why in the world go head to head with 500 kW from
Turkey?? Schedule is subject to variation. Supposed to be 11720 & 5980
at 17-19, then switching to the other pair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255- and 9690-, Feb 2 at 0705, no signals from VON (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 9689.97, Sat Feb 2 from 1607: Wild & crazy silly
ballgame on `Tablero Deportivo` from REE 9690.00 has QRM from low het
to low side, just like Nigeria provides normally after 1900 weekdays.
By 1641, I`m listening via UTwente with enough audio in the huge
collision to tell it is in English. Maybe CRI? But no IS or ID break
noted at ToH 1700. At 1714: just heard a Voice of Nigeria ID in
passing, ending program credits. By 1725, VON is gaining, and/or REE
is fading a bit; outro for program `Women and Development` with Lagos
address; still going past 1730. WRTH shows no VON at all between 09
and 18 UT, and 9690 only as alternate to 7255. Nor EiBi between 08 and
18. Aoki shows VON Swahili/Yoruba/Igbo at 1600-1730. So VON has a new
English block, rather than African languages, at least on Saturday
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR iog via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Feb 1 at 2300, REE English service is playing
``Kisses, Sweeter than Wine``, by The Weavers. Again, what has such
music to do with Spain? This time I keep listening and when it ends
Justin Coe introduces a report about a visit to a tourist trade fair
and a bodega - winery (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3299-USB, UT Sun Feb 3 at 0120, AF MARS net with AFD4TN
``for net control``, contact with AFD4FL, while net designator is
4TX1, all fonetikaly. Completed rollcall at 0121, counting 40
checkins. I suspect suffices -TN and -FL stand for Tennessee and
Florida (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1967 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
February 2 at 1230 on WRMI 9955, VP S1 but readable. Before 2030 it
should have been on 5045-LSB, Unique Radio, NSW, as on alternate
weeks.

Sat Feb 2 after 1531 on HLR 9485-CUSB, inaudible here and at UTwente
SDR; but Alan Gale, England, reports: ``Hi Glenn, Still no sign of
World of Radio via HLR here at 1530 UT again, but a tune around
various webSDRs brought up a very good signal via the one in Italy at:
http://kiwisdr.briata.org:8073/
You might like to check this out; at least we now know that the
signal is propagating to the south at any rate. Alan``

Also confirmed Sat Feb 2 at 2200 on WRMI, 9955, S9+/S6 and no jamming
yet. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7520, UT Sun Feb 3 at 0350, S9+10/20 of drama in Russian.
It`s WHRI`s weekly one hour on this frequency, aimed at Russia, but
language disinformation, listed on own FBC sked as in English, and as
if on 7385, which is off now but presumably on air the other six
nights. Only other active WHRI frequency now is 5920 in English.

Hansjoerg Biener confirms QSLing WHRI a year ago, during Your Story
Hour really in Russian; and last week, John Dusek wondered where the
Russian on 7520 was coming from, Jan 27 at 0320, ``a radio sitcom or
play of some sort.``

Only HFCC admits this is in Russian/English, at 03-04 on Day 7 only =
Saturday, but this is about Day 1 = Sunday: usual confusion over local
vs UT days. WRTH 2019 pp 505-506 shows no 7520 nor any language but
English for WHRI! EiBi showed 7520 on air from WHRI only Saturdays 03
-04 and in English! More confusion about UT day. Aoki misses 7520 WHRI
completely.

I know WHRI briefly in Russian Saturday nights has been reported
before but even FBC`s own current sked does not produce it. Frequency
search includes 7.520 on dropdown as a possible one, but gets no hits.
Nor does searching all frequencies in language: Russian. Then I
inspected the program schedules for Angels 1, 2, 5 and 6. Nothing on
1, 5 or 6, but 2 is the one supposedly targeting Russia, and it
includes this entry at the time John was listening:

``0315-0300 10:15 PM-10:00 PM Su Messianic Word Pictures Tracy Still
7.385 Mhz``

[sic!] I guess they meant 0315-0330, 10:15-10:30 PM unless they get
time to flow in reverse. Google searches on keywords get no
significant results except back to the WHR sked. And:

``0330-0400 10:30 PM-11:00 PM Su Your Story Hour 7.385 Mhz``

And 0300-0315 occupied by IRN News presumably in English, then 10
minutes of LeSEA music (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6880, Feb 2 at 0238, S9-S6 carrier, seems JB modulated
with music; again at 0309 check. This happens to be 2 x 3440, a
sometimes active pirate channel, such as Wolverine Radio, but at best
there is a JBA carrier there. No reports at this time in HFUnderground
about either, but several have appeared on 6880 last year or two
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

A couple slight correxions:

Add that it was dead air:

obviously the sloppyrators at

CRI relay transmitter before

before 1230, not 2030:

Logs
** CUBA. 13671.718 & 13728.283, Jan 31 at 1457, JBA spurs from RHC
13700 detectable today at 28.282 or 28.283 kHz offsets, perfectly
matched within margin of error. How about further out? One more found
at 13756.567, while 2 x 28.2825 would be +56.565, close enough!

So this transmitter has the same kind of defect as 15140, but a
different offset vs 28.6 kHz. Next one up should be about 13785, but
too much splash from fundamental 13780 not off yet. It is off at 1534,
when I find a JBA carrier on 13784.859, which is 28.292 above the
previous one. Of course I did not bother to check whether fundamental
was on exactly 13700.000. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Wondering whether the 15140 and 13700 transmitters have been swapped,
then at 1534 I see if any spurs remain from 15140? It`s rather weaker
today by propagation, but one about 14882.56.

The last time I found one in this area, Jan 25 at 1324: ``14882.472,
that is minus 257.528 kHz, but that means separations would be 25.7528
kHz, less than about 28.6 otherwise indicated; so maybe 14882+ is
really unrelated to these``. However, I was dividing by 10; if I had
divided by 9, I would have found it did match: 28.614 kHz! Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Jan 31 at 1542, RHC Spanish is S9+10 but suptorted;
wiggle that patchcord! // 15140 is distorted but not suppressed.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Jan 31 at 2150, great Greek music from VOG is good at
S9/+10 as I tune over from SBC on 11820+ after it stops Qur`aning. No
ToH timesignal, but ID before 2201 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1170, Jan 31 at 2010 UT on caradio, KFAQ Tulsa IBOC noise
seems off; can`t hear any on 1160 or 1180, but nothing else to be
heard either. At night it really messes up KSL (which I suppose is
also still IBOC too, serving them right). Certainly no conclusions yet
about KFAQ IBOC (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1450, Jan 31 at 1959 UT on caradio, one station in CCI
also vs spur het from 1390 KCRC, partial ID as 100.9 FM, into network
news. NRC AM Log shows of the three Okies on 1450, the one with 100.9,
K265FE, is KGFF Shawnee (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.0+, Jan 31 at 1423, VOT sign-off English by YL
announcer for a change; only a few Hz off frequency today, not 700,
poor S5-S7. I keep listening to ascertain when it cut off. IS plays
for a while, by 1426 interspersed with IDs in Turkic if not Turkish
language.

Keeps going past 1430 with timesignal about a sesquisecond late, and
opening presumed Kazakh, which is the only VOT SW language scheduled
to start at 1430, and supposed to be on 9785. Wish I could remember
that, to swiftly check whether 9785, 9785, 9785, be absent and cut on
late, the next time this surely happen; for 12035+ is not chopped off
by the sloppyrator until 1430:39*.

Meanwhile TRT Turkish is also almost-on-frequency today, a few Hz
above 11815.0 rather than +700, neither measured; tomorrow is another
day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. I`m overdue for a complete bandscan of the local FM
scene, so undertake it on caradio from a parking lot on the west edge
of Enid, Jan 31 from 2013 UT, noting some significant items:

88.3, K202BY, Enid, FÃmily Radio translator is still on with dead air
after many months, altho I have not kept mentioning it. They later got
an STA to be off the air, not realizing the difference! Nothing in
WTFDA FM Database about it being off, or programming silence, or STA.

92.1, KAMG-LP Enid remains off the air for many months. It`s still in
the WTFDA FM Database with no notation that it`s silent. I am hearing
something else weakly, one of the three others Okies on frequency.

93.1, K226BR Enid remains off the air for *years*; it was last
translating 93.9 KIMY until it broke. Still in WTFDADB as if it exist.

95.1, strong dead air at 2012, still at 2028 UT, trace of Wichita or
Shawnee underneath. Apparently somecar`s unfed feeder elsewhere in the
Walmart parking lot, as it quickly fades when I drive away. Far too
far from the Pheasant Run Xmas sound & lite show, a mile or two, to be
that 95.1 Part 15 transmitter not turned off.

100.9, no sign yet of K265FL, translator of talker KGWA 960 Enid, tho
in WTFDA DB as if on the air. Anyhow, that supplants the CP for a
community LPFM.

101.5, new local-quality signal! Strong enough to ACI KS on 101.7.
2017 UT Jan 31 tune-in to tropical music; dumps off the air for a few
seconds and back on several times. Song is `Alza tus Ojos`, lyrix
about ``mi querida Venezuela``, mentioning most other Latin American
countries, apparently promoting political support for the opposition.
Alzar means raise or lift up. Automated timecheck at 2020 for ``Las 14
horas, 20 minutos``, so in UT-6 zone.

Promo for program `Tiempo de Alabanza` elsewhen. I am wondering if
this be a local pirate? Especially when I hear it ID as ``Radio
SalvaciÃn, 93.9 FM``; then promo FB something like radiosalvacionokc;

But at 2032 UT it`s ``SalvaciÃn Radio NÃtwork, ciento uno punto cinco,
transmitiendo vÃa tus sentidos``, a rather strange claim. I hear the
same canned ID a few more times before 2100 UT. 2042 UT song again
``Alza tus Ojos``, but this time it`s a praise hymn with non-
Venezuelan lyrix.

Finally at 2100 UT at home I hear a too-fast legal ID for something
with a W on 93.9 and KOCD 101.5 Okeene OK; into Torah lesson --- I
guess they are Messianic, certainly not Jewish Orthodox.

WTFDA DB info draws no connexion between these (93.9 not heard here):

KOCD 101.5 Okeene OK runs 14 kW horizontal only from 88 meters HAAT,
at 36-07-11 N, 98-15-45 W Spanish ``LIBERTAD EN CRISTO MINISTRIES``

KWDW-LP 93.9 OKLAHOMA CITY, 100 watts H only, 28 meters, 35-21-40 N,
97-34-55 W ``SPANISH RELIGIOUS``

Okeene is about 30 miles SW of Enid, best known for its annual
Rattlesnake Roundup. Search for it on FB finds

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Radio-Salvacion-Okc/402409696478831
Home church is an Assembly of God at SW 42 & Agnew, but most of the FB
stuff is from 2012-2015. So the original LP pipsqueak gets a relay by
a moderate-power non-LP. Yet the LP reaches a far larger market.

104.9, Jan 31 at 2022, lofi RCatholic advice talkshow, phone 833-388-
EWTN. So the new station in Ringwood OK, a few miles west of Enid,
with one grocery store and a cemetery, is now on air. WTFDA DB shows:

KEUC 104.9 RINGWOOD, 100 watts H&V, 21 meters H&V [sic] at 36-23-12 N,
98-14-47 W, ``RELIGIOUS TEACHING EWTN OKLAHOMA CATHOLIC BROADCASTING``
Further into central Enid I am already losing the signal (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820.042, Jan 31 at 2119, SRI/SBA is propagating
again, after a long winter break, so spring must be nigh! Lovely
Qur`an chanting with just the right amount of reverb, even if
artificially applied rather than from the mosque`s echoey halls;
perfect lullaby for my afternoon nap, S9+10 with fades to S9; always
slightly plus frequency, and // always weaker 11914.988, slightly
minus, S9-S6. But at 2138 stops cantoring and starts merely talking,
presumably sermon until 2150 tune/out. Recheck at 2201, back to
Qur`aning, but both greatly faded to S8-S6 and JBA carrier
respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.1, Jan 31 at 2115, WBCQ is DA except for fragments of
BS cutting in and out, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950 // much stronger 9395, Jan 31 at 2116, these WRMIs are
Oldies this hour; not // 7780 other music, and German? announcement,
RAE relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Jan 31 at 1546, WTWW-1 night frequency still running
with PPPP, not 9475; 5085, Jan 31 at 1546, WTWW-2 is S9+30 over 1-
megameter total daypath with rock. 5085 rock still/again heard at
2133, S9+20, and by now 9475 is on.

I remarked about how white-identity PPPP might not approve of amoral
multi-ethnic rock music on his #2 legacy transmitter, but is it
really? Someone much more familiar with the genre and listening to
5085 a lot more than I ever will, would have to evaluate whether
anything from non-white artists is allowed on air by Ted? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1470, Jan 31 at 1359 UT, Spanish fades in slightly above the
CCI, can`t catch ID if any, but YL DJ is giving 800 number(s); 1402
song ``El DÃa del Marmota``, which means groundhog as well as marmot
altho my Langenscheidt dixionary does not know that; getting a jump on
him. L dix also says the word is feminine, but what about male
marmots? I think the song sang del rather than de la. Again presumed
KWSL Sioux City IA, for which NNE DF fits, and there are no SS Texans
in the opposite SSW direxion. BTW, when I was monitoring the webstream
the other day, the legal IDer pronounced KWSL in English, then
attempted to pronounce the X in Sioux not realizing that it is plenty
silent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1520, Jan 31 at 2012 UT again I have that JBA ~1 kHz het
vs KOKC on caradio in western Enid; 1521 Saudi or something. Much
closer hi-end skywave certainly in play (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)
