over and over again, poor S=6 signal noted in 0530-0545 UT slot
in Doha Qatar / Delhi India much weaker,

Logs
** CANADA. 15034-USB, Jan 8 at 1416, Trenton Military still with 61-minute-slow local timechex, ``Time 1315 zulu``, after a bunch of terminal forecasts all ``missing``, then some successful current conditions at various airports timestamped 1400z. BTW, exactly the same robovoice comes out of New York Radio, and I suppose Gander, on 10051, 13270; haven`t yet determined whether it can tell time correctly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025 & 5040, Jan 8 at 0615, both 60m frequencies are off, but at this hour nothing else to be heard on or around them (e.g. Australia, Perà on 5025). Asleep before I could check out any other RHCs, but next check awake at 1353, 5025 is back on with music in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Jan 8 at 0103, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, until autocutoff at 0104:20* which slippage is 26.5 seconds later than last capture 4 nights before, Jan 4 until 0103:53.5*, or averaging 6 and 5/8 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Sunday January 8 at 1516, REE is still reactivated here, at very poor S3 to North America --- and for the early weekend broadcasts sorely needs to be on a higher band, as // 15500 is best at S8, but with some short/longpath echo: it`s at 110 degrees for Mideast, exactly the opposite bearing from 9690 at 290 degrees. Second best at S5 is 15390, which HFCC shows also at 110, but that can`t be correct, as it is really for South America, per EiBi. Also on 17755, 161 degrees across Africa, the one I detected first with a VP carrier aside much stronger 17750 Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sunday January 8 at 1702, S9+10 open carrier from WWRB; 1704, gradually fade-up lo-fi urgent presumed Luganda talk from Radio Munansi; 1720 audio feed loses out to whine. 1728 feed restoted, now two guys conversing, less urgent. Usually JBA, but now Dxmaps.com confirms there is a sporadic E MUF up to 27 MHz between TN and OK. The Es opening spreads geographically but not much upward MUF into VHF, by 1800 as WWRB signal remains good, now finally some music, until 1805 talk finally higher-fi than the previous hour. Still in well by 1845 with some deep fades, and never notice any English so far. After 1850 some interruptions, phone ringing and reconnecting, 1853 music, 1855 mentions Los Angeles, studio. Still going at final check 1909 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 5520-USB, Jan 8 at 0621, Cubana 444 flight in contact with New York Radio on Caribbean area ATC frequency. They have trouble talking over each other, as no-one likes to say ``over`` or ``cambio`` (rather, strictly English even for non-native pilots) but NY tries to inform 444 that his secondary frequency is 6586. Various selcall tones also interrupting. EiBi shows site for this is bg = Barnegat, NJ, 39N45, 74W23'30" --- that`s down the coast off the Garden State Parkway between Toms River and Tuckerton.

According to flightaware.com, Cubana 444 did not take off until 0626, way late after scheduled 0240 UT departure, for a 5-kilomile, 8-hour flight to Paris, which arrived at the Orly gate at 1426 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9329.964v-CUSB, UT Sunday January 8 at 0055, WBCQ with DJ ``rockin` `n` rollin```, 0058 outro exactly the same playback I heard exactly one week ago, with Mike Shiteman (sp?) filling in for `Allan Weiner Worldwide` when he was on the road at least a sesquidecade ago. A 1-hour AWWW repeat is scheduled UT Sundays 00-01 on 9330. This was in tribute to Mike who recently died. I still can`t find anything about Mike on the WBCQ website, guessing at alternative spellings of his surname. Two WBCQ ID jingles before 0100 and into Blalock the Blaster, who always seems to be JIP rather than even introducing his program, officially called `Full Gospel Hour`.

7490.03-AM, Jan 8 at 0100, other WBCQ measured here, presumably starting Mitch & Kathy show.

5129.81-AM, Jan 8 at 0100, other other WBCQ measured here, `Radio Timtron Worldwide`, at midpoint of his bihour. Next check at 0616 Jan 8, open carrier at S6 on 5129.82, when Radio Jennifer expansion might have been airing, perhaps earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Altho November 6 remains the effective date displayed on the WRMI 9955 skedgrid, changes keep appearing here and there. Now I notice there is a show called ``Bajo el sol de Miami`, Sat 2330-2400 [and probably also on 6855 now], which seems like it could be interesting, but of course there is nothing about it on the programming page where many others are explained, yet many more are still absent:
http://wrmi.net/index.php/programming/
Unfortunately, on Jan 7, I had just tuned out at 2328 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Jan 8 at 0105, WTWW-2 is still off, as it was from 9930 all afternoon Jan 7. By 0615, however, it is on now with a song mentioning Mad Magazine, wild laughter, modulation distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UZBEKISTAN. 7600, Jan 7 at 1353, open carrier at S7-S9, maybe JBM, 1400
talk and now also a weaker signal on 7635, as both were heard after 1400
Jan 5. Aoki listed 7600 as BBC Hindi via Thailand, but checking these out
Jan 6, Wolfgang BÃschel says per latest HFCC info, both are via Tashkent,
Uzbekistan, and both BBC Hindi, apparently testing 7635 (and he says also
7530; but nothing about my other unID carrier on 7670).

Logs
** AUSTRALIA. 4910, Jan 7 at 0816, VP carrier vs CODAR on both sides, VL8T, Tennant Creek still on day frequency before 0830 switch to 2325. At about the same level this early is 4835, VL8A Alice Springs, too close to 4840 WWCR, but will not QSY. The third station day frequency, 5025, VL8K Katherine, is of course blocked by Rebelde unless rarely AWOL, but normally audible later on 2485. All three stations on five frequencies are destined for extinxion at Janend, unless internal opposition to ABC plans succeed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 7 at 1904, undermodulated choking Arabic from RHC to Chicago, only S9; collides with irregular Oman also in Arabic as noted elsewhere, but no trace of that here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA. 7236.571, Jan 7 at 1358, poor carrier here, presumed the constantly varying R. Ethiopia by long path (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Jan 7 at 1838 check, no signal from MWV English, but it is on at 2048 during the repeat, discussion of Bible correspondence courses for Africans, now S4-S7 and the OSOB, its major competitor, 17790 WRMI having evacuated, and its other, 17775 KVOH being silent on Saturdays, or supposedly everyday after 1900 but sometimes runs later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15300, Jan 7 at 2054, a signal where normally there is none --- and it`s [Station YHWH], Martin Elliott with same old stuff on a new frequency, poor at S3-S5 but then surges up to S9, 2057 mentions ``California time, Universal time`` as if schedule info but can`t copy details in a fade; reads a short letter, then 2059 refers to his ``53-page document`` and apparently starts over reading it, about ``false God, Jesus``, ``Christianity, greatest hoax ever foisted upon Mankind``. Somewhat undermodulated and distorted but quite readable at fade-ups. I had just checked 9275 in case he showed up on competing Yahweh frequency of WMLK. Anyhow we know this Yahweh guy does not take Sabbathdays off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Jan 7 at 0814, JBA carrier in splash from 5025 Cuba, no doubt SIBC on night frequency and propagable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11825, Jan 7 at 1907, WRMIBS is back on after AWOL yesterday, also // 11580 and 15770. Altho sufficient, it`s a relief that the much stronger daytime blasters across North America, 13695 and 15440 (and 17790, not so much) are the ones BS gave up --- except that going with them from 13695 to much weaker 11580 are the 2100-2200 panoply of programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Sat Jan 7 at 1839, REE is still missing from North American frequency, which on Sat is scheduled to start at 1500, and fading up enough by now. 15390 & 15500 to elsewhere are fairly audible. Recheck 2102, however, 9690 is finally reactivated after at least a week, now good at S9+10 for REE`s most important show, `Tablero Deportivo`. 15390 & 15500 remain fairly audible at S9, and I can even detect the fourth transmitter on 11685, S5-S6 vs constant RTTY on its hi side from NAA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Jan 7 at 1903, poor signal S5 in presumed Luganda, from Radio Munansi via WWRB; no signal at 2054 recheck, as the exact schedule seems to remain flexible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1859 monitoring: confirmed Sat Jan 7 at 2332 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, when signal surged up after JBA carrier from 2330. Next:
Sun 0410v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to SW [off for maintenance this week only]
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW [NEW]
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Also check WRMI airings, especially 9955, for possible // on 6855.

Also allegedly at random times on WBCQ 5130v-AM during Radio Jennifer service expanded hours, altho not noted lately. Updated full WOR sked:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, Sat Jan 7 at 1401, WRMI is starting a gospel huxter, and // 9955. Seems reliably at this hour to be duplicating 9955; therefore I am expecting the Wed 1415.5 broadcast of WORLD OF RADIO also to be added on 6855. May also apply to the Tue 1200 and Thu 1230; but not the Mon 0430 WOR airings, when 6855 has been // 5985 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5810, Jan 7 at 0811, Spanish WEWN is off! Had been on as usual earlier in evening. I wonder if they always rest now in the nightmiddle when audience is minimal? I am normally fast asleep by this hour. Not propagational, as other US stations on 5830, 5850, 5890 are inbooming (which is not always the case as MUF plummets).

12010 & 12090 approx., Jan 7 at 1908, buzzy spurs with no specific carriers from the 12050 WEWN Spanish transmitter which itself has horrible buzz on it. Modulation peaks on the spurs match (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat Jan 7 at 1901 check, no signal from WTWW-2, so no `Theater Organ of the Ozarx` this week. Other WTWWs 9475 and 12105 are loud. 9930 is still off at 2103 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UZBEKISTAN. 7600, Jan 7 at 1353, open carrier at S7-S9, maybe JBM, 1400 talk and now also a weaker signal on 7635, as both were heard after 1400 Jan 5. Aoki listed 7600 as BBC Hindi via Thailand, but checking these out Jan 6, Wolfgang BÃschel says per latest HFCC info, both are via Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and both BBC Hindi, apparently testing 7635 (and he says also 7530; but nothing about my other unID carrier on 7670) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

ALAN ROE`s HITLIST
http://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

** ALBANIA. 5960, Jan 6 at 2117, W&M conversation in English, therefore must be CRI --- yes, // 7285 as scheduled this hour via CÃrrik to western Europe but America beyond. 5960 is in fact the SSOB! at S8-S9. One could not imagine R. Tirana itself like that; in fact its 7475 North American frequency at 0230 has been reported missing lately, even among Europeans and also among me Jan 7; and the webcast has been going and coming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALBANIA [and non?]. 6020, Jan 7 at 0334, CRI talking in Chinese via CÃrrik, with QRM from singing underneath. R. GaÃcha reactivated? Doubt it, rather self-imposed QRM as modulated talkover, not a good idea for SW programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARUBA. 18160-USB, Jan 6 at 2131, P49MR, QSO with unheard K8WIL by Martin who has to spell his name at least thrice in a barely contact. Spends winters on island, otherwise is Ontarian VE3MR. Almost the OSOB in phone, except a JBA on 18140. Fontetix used, just to confuse the uninformed: Portugal-4-9-Mexico-Radio. The P4- should be enough to get us to Aruba, so does the small island have at least 9 call areas within? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 5964.967, Jan 7 at 0238, JBA carrier, presumed usual R. Transmundial around this offset (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 1610, Jan 7 at 0349 UT, South Asian songs dominating at S9+20, no doubt CHHA Toronto during its Punjabi hour UT Tue-Sat, but hardly Latina! Skedgrid in ET, unchanged in 16 months?:
http://chha1610am.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/PostCard-CHHA-1610AM-2016.jpg
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Jan 6 at 2126.5, Trenton Military ID and ``time, 2025z``, so looks as if they forgot to reset their local clock two months ago when DST ended! The automaton cannot perceive the discrepancy when continuing to quote weather conditions in Comox and Vancouver timestamped 2100z. At least the modulation remains unscathed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CZECHIA [non]. 6855, Jan 7 at 0230, R. Prague opening daily English relay on new frequency via WRMI, added to or replacing inaudible 11580 which is still the only one shown on schedule; ex-Brother Scare all the time on 6855, following drastic reduxion in his WRMI hours. More under USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 6090, Jan 7 at 0332, PMS ANGUILLA S9+40, still distorted as always, but they don`t care in The Valley. With CCI talk underneath, at this hour, probably R. Amhara, and no het. It must be stronger than 6110 R. Fana to start with, since that is quite weak, very poor; but WRMI-less 5950 with HOA music is fair to poor hitting S9.

Wolfgang BÃschel was monitoring via Qatar remote a few minutes earlier, putting Tigray Revolution on 5949.999, Amhara on 6089.997, while Fana was on exactly 6110.000; nothing on 7236v, as I also noted, nor any Eritreans, while Somaliland carrier was there on 7120 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 6855, Jan 7 at 0402, Radio JapÃn as clear from second news item, following top news about Ft Lauderdale airport shootings, extremely indirectly via Toquio. WRMI relay at 0400-0430 on new frequency, still // 5985; replacing Hermano Asusto who has withdrawn to only four WRMI transmitters at a time. More at USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR [and non]. 5008v-5000, Jan 7 at 0316, haven`t heard RNM varying around here lately, but thought I had it now. Instead of back & forth, weak carrier kept running downward, hitting WWV by 0318. Maybe instead, one of those birdies the NRD-545 likes to produce, especially on lower bands.

WWV 5000 weak, so quick switch to 2500 for :18 prop info: SF=72, Ap=16, Kp at 03=4, no storms past or future. The other southern Africans on 90m, 3240, 3320 were in very well, but no Angola 4949.7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 5791.99, Jan 7 at 0314, Martin K. Elliott (as FCC identified him), with [Station YHWH] monolog at S9+5, soon fading to S8-S7, and by 0339 to JBA at S6. Resurged at 0403 to readable S9, enough to tell that the modulation is scratchy, about how Yahweh does not countenance sacrificing animals, not in the Ten-Coms, after all, therefore: ``Christianity, the greatest hoax ever``.

Getting to be a reliable time and frequency for him, facilitating his next bust. Ron Howard was also listening to 5792, Jan 6 from the earliest yet, 0232, past 0402. See also USA WMLK 9275 log (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 7158-LSB, Jan 7 at 0407, ZS6CCY working lots of US stations, RI, LA, IN, contest? Bit of a co-channel pileup but not severe. QTH.com shows: ZS6CCY WILLIAM (BILL) HUNTER, HOSIE SIBAYA RANCH, VAALWATER 0530, South Africa, while his QRZ.com lookup has lots of photos of his setup (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 7315, Jan 7 at 0340, WHRI colliding with R. Tamazuj via VATICAN as has been going on all season. Roughly equal levels here. WHRI registered for 250 kW at 152 degrees, likely bleeding into Sudan too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 6855, Jan 7 at 0311, RTI in Spanish via WRMI with ID and address info, S9+25 here added to // 5985 at S9+20; 0313 starting `Plaza PÃblica` programa in one-hour transmission. 6855 has been repurposed to // various other WRMI services rather than nada mÃs que Hermano HistÃrico. More at USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 6080, UT Sat Jan 7 at 0405, VOT ID amid English news, S9 over VOA SÃo Tomà collision, making a fast SAH with it. Need to check whether Letterbox appear UT Sunday, as Alan Roe heard it back on a Wednesday broadcast Jan 4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UKRAINE [non]. 6855, Jan 7 at 0214 mid-ID in RUI relay via WRMI on new frequency, S9+10, in addition to or replacing inaudible 11580 which is still the only one shown on WRMI schedule; ex nothing but Brother HyStairical on 6855 following his cutbacks. More under USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, further WRMI monitoring obs, lacking any published schedule:

6855, Fri Jan 6 at 2114, World Music // 9955, presumably for the full hour. (I previously found Radio Libertad on both after 2200.)

6855, UT Sat Jan 7 at 0214, ID amid R. Ukraine International in English, S9+10 here, and maybe still // inaudible 11580 where originally scheduled. 0229 fragment of Bob Zanotti ID cut off for 0230 R. Prague English relay, ditto. (7730 BS, allegedly on same 285-degree azimuth as 6855, is much stronger at S9+30)

6855, UT Sat Jan 7 at 0311, R. TaiwÃn Internacional ID in Spanish, address info, S9+25 now here, while // 5985 is only S9+20 (meanwhile, 9955 is S6 of jamming atop what`s left of WRMI).

6855, UT Sat Jan 7 at 0402, Spanish news all about the Ft Lauderdale airport shootings, finally some current Florida news from WRMI --- but via NHK Radio JapÃn, // 5985 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** U S A. 11825, Jan 7 at 2124, this WRMIBS frequency is still/again off the air as already noted 6+ hours earlier. It`s not one of the daytime frequencies deleted from the skedgrid, still shown as XMTR 8, from 1315 until 2400 at 355 degrees; while nighttime counterpart 5765 is delisted and unheard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat Jan 7 after 0100, WBCQ webcast since 7490 is hardly audible, for `Allan [spelt] Weiner Worldwide`. Mentions the full name of the former WBCQ guy that died before yearend, Michael Shiteman, which I can only guess to spell fonetikaly. Soon a call from some guy in NC who says summers are cooler than before and it`s very cold now, so climate change is nonsense --- hey, you`re missing the big picture about rising ocean temps overall, seriously disrupting the food chain, killing coral reefs, etc., etc., etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, Jan 6 at 2121, no signal from WMLK, unknown if on earlier today Friday, but nominally stops at 2100? Meanwhile, neighbor in more ways than one, 9265 WINB is well audible.

Keep checking in case the other YHWH show up on 9275 after hours. Bob Lazar reported Dec 28: ``I heard the Yahweh pirate on 9275 at 2050-2200 UTC. Decent S9 signal with severe fading and down to BA at the end``. I replied that it must have been WMLK, but not so sure now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Jan 7 at 0327, at S9+50, Devil/Georgia by Charlie Daniels Band, 0328 on to Alabama, as announced by Ted, disrespecting the music by talking over it (I know, all the ``pro`` DJs do it to show off, except never vs classical). I knew WTWW-2 would be on, as tuning up from 5025, 5040 Cuba, I first encountered the telltale spur parasites around 5059, 5072 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7385, Jan 7 at 0341, WHRI gospel huxter with squealing modulator cards, in dire need of replacement. S9+25 here, also QRMing MWV La Voz Alegre on 7390 which otherwise would have a clear S9 signal in Spanish. See also SUDAN SOUTH [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1220, Jan 7 at 0400 UT, local weather by YL but too much QRM to copy detail, ID almost certainly WSLM, i.e. Salem IN, the cheater dominating 1220 west of Cleveland despite licensed 5000/82 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1360, Jan 7 at 0358 UT, immediately at tune in, ``You are listening to WMOB Mobile, and WTOF Bay Minette``, into another gospel huxter before hourtop. Yes, the two are //, WTOF supposedly a 10 kW daytimer on 1110, and WMOB running only 200 watts at night, 9000 watts day. Contraindications explicable only as the Word of God thumping the Rules of Man (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1560.93, Jan 7 at 0351 UT, stepping down the MW band, I hear a weak het of almost 1 kHz above 1560, KKAA SD, Family Radio hymn // 920 KYFR IA. The het seems to peak roughly N/S too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2960, Jan 7 at 0320, stable JBA carrier with trace of modulation, but with QRN adding up to S9+10. Checking here since Tim Tromp had reported the night before to the harmonics yg,

``WERM Mobile AL, 2 x 1480 on 2960 with a decent signal and modulation during peaks with black gospel music. WERM calls clearly heard between songs making for an easy ID on 2960 but no luck logging them on their intended frequency of 1480 here. 73, Tim Tromp, West Michigan``.

It`s licensed for 4400 watts at night on 1480, so how much on 2960? A bit later I definitely did hear a Mobilian fundamental on 1360 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
