ALBANIA. 7475, Feb 14 at 0056, no signal at all from R. Tirana near end of
Albanian hour to North America. Yet Romania on 7410 is S9 and 7445 BBC
Dari from Woofferton is S9+25! The next broadcast is 0230 in English on
7475, so I check that at 0232: nothing. Wolfgang BÃschel has been
monitoring more R. Tirana SW broadcasts and concludes Shijak site has been
completely off the air for a few days now (but they are experimenting with
more MW, to Europe, not us of course). Altho we are advisors to RTSH, we
have no info on the status or plans for SW broadcasts.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Nothing ON AIR, today Febr 14, around 0930-0950 UT:
not SW 7390v kHz from Shijak Albania.

But heard some three co-channels on mediumwave 1395 kHz:

strongest 1394.974, that could be probably Fllaka RT outlet
at much central Europe 'fade-out time' 0950 UT
here in southern Germany.

Others weaker some poor 'dim light' radio hobby players from Holland or UK ?
1394.992 and 13095.008 kHz at 0950 UT.


ARGENTINA. 6060, Feb 14 at 0112, Cuba missing, leaving very poor signal
with music, RAE? And het on lo side about 6059.75, Brasil? Again, NO
signal on RAE ATTW frequency which had long been varying a bit around
11710.6. There is however, a JBA carrier on 11712.0 but could be a
receiver birdie. I also had zero signal around 15345v before 2400 Feb 13
nor recent afternoons, so still suspect RAE is off the air except possibly
6060, which is too weak to be of any use here. Could Argentine or other
South American DXers please confirm whether or not RAE is active on any of
these frequencies?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Checked 6060 kHz channel last night Febr 13, at 2314 UT on remote unit in
central Florida, NoAMerican east coast:

6060.002 strongest VoIRIB Zahedan in Arabic at S=9+20dB level.
Underneath Brazilian SRDA on 6059.763 kHz very odd fq channel.
Nothing could be traced like RAE Buenos Aires at this hour so far.

Could Argentine or other South American DXers please confirm whether or not RAE is active on any of these frequencies?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 13 at 1427, CRI English relay is S9+10 but just barely modulated. That`s the rule rather than exception, but sometimes worse than others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 17730, Feb 13 at 2234, RHC in French, while 15370 is in Spanish. So the 2230 Sunday Esperanto before moving to 2130 on 15370, would have been on 17730 rather than 15370 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Feb 14 at 0112, RHC is off, but maybe ARGENTINA q.v. is on.

6000 // 6165, Feb 14 at 0119-0122, RHC English, Juan is interviewing Prof. Arnie Coro on the phone, ``a leaving radio legend`` ---- oops, he`s not leaving, he`s living! And congratulating him, apparently because it`s World Radio Day. Fidel allegedly visited RHC four times, and made the original announcement to the world in April 1961 that RHC was on the air. This and other historic recordings are being preserved in the RHC archives. Modulation on both frequencies is decent for a change (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 9490, Feb 14 at 0134, no Radio RepÃblica via FRANCE and hardly any jamming either, so the DentroCuban Jamming Command must not be hearing it either. What`s happened? Maybe funding hiatus. Europe is propagating e.g. from 9420 Greece at S7-S5, 9570 Albania at S9-S7. R.R. may have been gone for a while without my noticing. Nominal schedule per WRTH and EiBi is 01-03 UT. Then I check HFCC B-16 registrations, which rather strangely show 00-01 & 01-02 separately for entire season, plus 0200-0259 starting 12 February. 12 Feb is the date for several other schedule changes by ISSoudun transmitters, notably RFI itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 5060, Feb 14 at 0106, Chinese at S8, from PBS Xinjiang. Therefore I seek the three other 60+ mb frequencies from Urumqi`s other domestic service languages, and there they are but JBA carriers only: 4980, 4850, 4500, as Chinese is appropriately first-among-equals, ha2. 4800 carrier also, presumably Geermu, China. 4765 also carrier, trace of modulation at 0110, suspect Tajikistan before Cuba signs on, rather than Brasil â is either ZY listed there active? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690-, Feb 13 at 0643, again no show of second VON frequency during Hausa hour, but S9+20 on 7255-. Propagating from Africarea on 31m are: 9650 Guinea, 9915 Ascension (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7615, Feb 14 at 0233, JBA signal here, and I think I hear the calm but strident tones of Mr YHWH, on a frequency where I previously found him. Another one to check is 7550, where Dave Valko recently caught him (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 14 at 0057, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, vs lite pulse jamming, and splatter from 5990 Cuba. Since I found last night that their autotimer had been reset earlier, tonight my ears are monitoring continuously while my eyes are glued to the watch, to find it does cut off at new earlier time of 0101:22*, so that will be the starting marker for a brand-new cycle of ~6.7 second latening per noctem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7340, Feb 14 at 0129, surprised to find RRI English here at S9+25, since this frequency is supposed to be in Romanian. // English properly on 7325 at S9+35, also // 5960 at S9+30, concluding sports roundup. Fourth frequency to N America is 5910 Romanian, which I should have tried for sure, but I think I noticed it was in Romanian earlier when making another futile check for any trace of Colombia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA [and non]. 17895 & 17705 & 17615, Feb 13 at 1429, the three 16m BSKSA frequencies are poor-fair, i.e. propagation is improving, and in fact they are better than CUBA on 17580, 17730, 17750. By 1505 the SA triad are off, and RHC is much stronger than before, S9+20 on 17750 but JBM, also 17730; and 17580 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3269-USB, UT Tue Feb 14 at 0138, another MARS net, this one with radiochex and/or relays among abbr`d calls 6VK, 6GE, 6RB and 6IN, calls fonetikaly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4041-USB, UT Tue Feb 14 at 0104, MARS net with radiochex among AFA7FA > AAR7JT < AFA7BG, calls fonetikaly, indicating relative strengths (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1864 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday February 13 from 0401 on Area 51 webcast; at 0417 check on WBCQ 5130+, poor but listenable. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 13 after 0430 on WRMI webcast, while 9955 is but a JBA carrier. Also confirmed UT Tue Feb 14 at 0043, the 0030 broadcast on WRMI 7730: S9+20/30 but undermodulated. Strangely, this airing is habitually so, unlike other 7730 programs, and unlike other WRMI/WOR airings. Also confirmed at 0055, the 0030 UT Tue broadcast on WBCQ 9330.06v-CUSB, very poor S4. Next:
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Monday Feb 13 at 2235, WRMI with `Christian New Age Radio`, sounds like same episode I have heard two or three recent Mondays at this time altho not on schedule. Also on much weaker // 6855 & 5950. I write to Rev. Frederick Moe about it, which will constitute the rest of this log:

``Still on WRMI --- Hello Rev. Frederick,

I`ve run across your Christian New Age Radio show a few times, but it seems to be the same episode #2 (as you refer to previous pilot #1). Nor is it on the WRMI schedule the last time I checked, but the time I hear it is 2230 UT on Mondays, when three frequencies are carrying the same program (including mine, World of Radio, at the same time on Fridays.) 11580 is by far the best, with a good signal and no interference altho it is supposedly aimed NE from FL and I am NW of there. Also on much weaker 6855 to the WNW and 5950 to the south.

I normally don`t spend time on religious shows, but yours is a refreshing respite from the screaming preachers infesting so much of shortwave, including much of the time on WRMI. Also enjoy the pleasant music.

Your name caught my attention immediately, since years ago we used to hear from a SW/DXer named Fred Moe, and wonder if you are the same person??

Your outro also mentioned that the music just played had been Failing Dream; and the homily came from The Liturgy. At the end, 2258 UT today February 13, you mention QSL, so I would appreciate one, either to this e-mail address or by postal to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702. I was listening on my Icom R75 with about 100 feet of east-west longwire.

I see in the WRMI server that your file is dated November 2, 2016, so apparently you have not uploaded any further episodes. I wonder what happened --- and if you are aware that #2 is still being played every week? Best wishes, Glenn Hauser``

No reply yet (Glenn Hauser, UT Feb 14, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.06-AM, UT Tue Feb 14 at 0126, I remember that `From the Isle of Music` is on WBCQ, good S9+30 signal now and no need to listen on webcast. I enjoy the rest of the music via the good speaker of the PL-880 with reelout antenna, while I continue bandscanning into the other ear on the NRD-545 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11815-12250, Feb 13 at 1415, at least this far extends the spuriouscrap out of 12050 WEWN. So I send another note to Glen Tapley of WEWN:

``RE: 12050 causing severe interference

Glen, Again, lately it`s been even worse. This morning around 1415 UT, the spurious blobnoise from 12050 could be heard as far down as 11815 and as far up as 12250. Worst closer to 12050 of course, blocking Turkey on 12035. Also QRMing Yemen on 11860. And many weaker signals in the area. Generally increases the background noise level in much of the 25m band. With a second receiver I could match the modulation peaks on 12050 with the spurious.

If you can`t get this transmitter back in order to transmit only within its authorized 10 kHz bandwidth, it`s another one you should take off the air permanently!

Did you have a good time in Jordan? Regards, Glenn Hauser``

His reply at 1744 UT: ``Glenn, Thanks for the info Glenn. Vandiver working on it. Jordan was fruitful. Always great to engage with great friends and colleagues. Glen Tapley | Engineering, Affiliate Relations | EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network``

11860, YEMEN [non] much was fighting the WEWN hash at 1442. WEWN and its spurs somewhat weaker at 1505. I didn`t get around to rechecking whether 12050 improved immediately or was taken off. But:

5810, Feb 14 at *0122 as I tune in, WEWN cuts carrier on the air, and Spanish modulation some 30 seconds later, but cuts off and back on without modulation at first. Presumably same transmitter as daytime on 12050, altho fortunately it had not been blasting its band with spurs, but obviously having problems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESET)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1590, Feb 14 at 0147 UT, earnest YL preaching Christian stuff in Spanish, dominating frequency for a while and slightly stronger on N/S than on E/W antenna. Her ministerio is named Cristo Te Llama Hoy, and says it`s on FB by that name. 0154 UT gives contact info including a P O Box somewhere in Tejas, and her apellido is Herrera. 0155 UT to music and fadeout; 0159 UT fade-in a bit, but no ID; 0200 UT fade in better with norteÃa song, maybe hymn, cut off at 0202 UT to intro next program, maybe mentioning Alma Viva, phone number, and fade into QRM as I have to QRT, without getting a DF on the DX-398. Also a persistent het on low side, maybe KWBG IA as in DXLD 16-15.

First thought is KMIC Houston, but as we discovered a few months ago, it flipped from R Aleluya to Asian. The only other Texan Spanish religionist in NRC AM Log is: KDAE Sinton 1000/500 U4, address Corpus Christi and // Radio Libertad.

Now for the research. The main FB page by that name says it`s in El Salvador, with nothing much on it, but URL automatically inserts a dot: /cristotellama.hoy

Searching on KDAE leads to this:
http://www.radiolibertad.net/spanish/radioschedule.htm
of which 1590 is the only AM station, plus a bunch of Texas FMs, but program sked does not match what I heard, tho it has a female pastora. This may well require further monitoring.

Adding Herrera to search on "Cristo te llama hoy" leads to someone named Hna. Madai Herrera:

https://es-la.facebook.com/herrera.madai/
which guess what, is on R. Aleluya, so that takes us back to KMIC Houston, including this item from a week ago at the SAME time:

``Cristo Te Llama Hoy/Hna.Madai Herrera 7 de febrero a las 5:15 Â
#BuenosDias ??
Este es el tema que compartà ayer en la radio. Es mi deseo que pueda ser de bendiciÃn a sus vidas. Y si lo es por favor compÃrtelo con alguien que no ha entregado su vida a Cristo. Hubo Cambio, Madai Herrera, Radio Aleluya 88.1FM - Programa Cristo Te Llama Hoy, 6 de Febrero del 2017, Lunes 7:30pm, PO Box 3262, Pasadena, TX 77501``

So is KMIC still Radio Dabang, or not, or partly that and partly Aleluya?? The latter still claims to be on 980 and 88.1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7340, Feb 14 at 0129, surprised to find RRI English here at S9+25, since this frequency is supposed to be in Romanian. // English properly on 7325 at S9+35, also // 5960 at S9+30, concluding sports roundup. Fourth frequency to N America is 5910 Romanian, which I should have tried for sure, but I think I noticed it was in Romanian earlier when making another futile check for any trace of Colombia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA [and non]. 17895 & 17705 & 17615, Feb 13 at 1429, the three 16m BSKSA frequencies are poor-fair, i.e. propagation is improving, and in fact they are better than CUBA on 17580, 17730, 17750. By 1505 the SA triad are off, and RHC is much stronger than before, S9+20 on 17750 but JBM, also 17730; and 17580 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3269-USB, UT Tue Feb 14 at 0138, another MARS net, this one with radiochex and/or relays among abbr`d calls 6VK, 6GE, 6RB and 6IN, calls fonetikaly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4041-USB, UT Tue Feb 14 at 0104, MARS net with radiochex among AFA7FA > AAR7JT < AFA7BG, calls fonetikaly, indicating relative strengths (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1864 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday February 13 from 0401 on Area 51 webcast; at 0417 check on WBCQ 5130+, poor but listenable. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 13 after 0430 on WRMI webcast, while 9955 is but a JBA carrier. Also confirmed UT Tue Feb 14 at 0043, the 0030 broadcast on WRMI 7730: S9+20/30 but undermodulated. Strangely, this airing is habitually so, unlike other 7730 programs, and unlike other WRMI/WOR airings. Also confirmed at 0055, the 0030 UT Tue broadcast on WBCQ 9330.06v-CUSB, very poor S4. Next:
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Monday Feb 13 at 2235, WRMI with `Christian New Age Radio`, sounds like same episode I have heard two or three recent Mondays at this time altho not on schedule. Also on much weaker // 6855 & 5950. I write to Rev. Frederick Moe about it, which will constitute the rest of this log:

``Still on WRMI --- Hello Rev. Frederick,

I`ve run across your Christian New Age Radio show a few times, but it seems to be the same episode #2 (as you refer to previous pilot #1). Nor is it on the WRMI schedule the last time I checked, but the time I hear it is 2230 UT on Mondays, when three frequencies are carrying the same program (including mine, World of Radio, at the same time on Fridays.) 11580 is by far the best, with a good signal and no interference altho it is supposedly aimed NE from FL and I am NW of there. Also on much weaker 6855 to the WNW and 5950 to the south.

I normally don`t spend time on religious shows, but yours is a refreshing respite from the screaming preachers infesting so much of shortwave, including much of the time on WRMI. Also enjoy the pleasant music.

Your name caught my attention immediately, since years ago we used to hear from a SW/DXer named Fred Moe, and wonder if you are the same person??

Your outro also mentioned that the music just played had been Failing Dream; and the homily came from The Liturgy. At the end, 2258 UT today February 13, you mention QSL, so I would appreciate one, either to this e-mail address or by postal to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702. I was listening on my Icom R75 with about 100 feet of east-west longwire.

I see in the WRMI server that your file is dated November 2, 2016, so apparently you have not uploaded any further episodes. I wonder what happened --- and if you are aware that #2 is still being played every week? Best wishes, Glenn Hauser``

No reply yet (Glenn Hauser, UT Feb 14, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.06-AM, UT Tue Feb 14 at 0126, I remember that `From the Isle of Music` is on WBCQ, good S9+30 signal now and no need to listen on webcast. I enjoy the rest of the music via the good speaker of the PL-880 with reelout antenna, while I continue bandscanning into the other ear on the NRD-545 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11815-12250, Feb 13 at 1415, at least this far extends the spuriouscrap out of 12050 WEWN. So I send another note to Glen Tapley of WEWN:

``RE: 12050 causing severe interference

Glen, Again, lately it`s been even worse. This morning around 1415 UT, the spurious blobnoise from 12050 could be heard as far down as 11815 and as far up as 12250. Worst closer to 12050 of course, blocking Turkey on 12035. Also QRMing Yemen on 11860. And many weaker signals in the area. Generally increases the background noise level in much of the 25m band. With a second receiver I could match the modulation peaks on 12050 with the spurious.

If you can`t get this transmitter back in order to transmit only within its authorized 10 kHz bandwidth, it`s another one you should take off the air permanently!

Did you have a good time in Jordan? Regards, Glenn Hauser``

His reply at 1744 UT: ``Glenn, Thanks for the info Glenn. Vandiver working on it. Jordan was fruitful. Always great to engage with great friends and colleagues. Glen Tapley | Engineering, Affiliate Relations | EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network``

11860, YEMEN [non] much was fighting the WEWN hash at 1442. WEWN and its spurs somewhat weaker at 1505. I didn`t get around to rechecking whether 12050 improved immediately or was taken off. But:

5810, Feb 14 at *0122 as I tune in, WEWN cuts carrier on the air, and Spanish modulation some 30 seconds later, but cuts off and back on without modulation at first. Presumably same transmitter as daytime on 12050, altho fortunately it had not been blasting its band with spurs, but obviously having problems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESET)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1590, Feb 14 at 0147 UT, earnest YL preaching Christian stuff in Spanish, dominating frequency for a while and slightly stronger on N/S than on E/W antenna. Her ministerio is named Cristo Te Llama Hoy, and says it`s on FB by that name. 0154 UT gives contact info including a P O Box somewhere in Tejas, and her apellido is Herrera. 0155 UT to music and fadeout; 0159 UT fade-in a bit, but no ID; 0200 UT fade in better with norteÃa song, maybe hymn, cut off at 0202 UT to intro next program, maybe mentioning Alma Viva, phone number, and fade into QRM as I have to QRT, without getting a DF on the DX-398. Also a persistent het on low side, maybe KWBG IA as in DXLD 16-15.

First thought is KMIC Houston, but as we discovered a few months ago, it flipped from R Aleluya to Asian. The only other Texan Spanish religionist in NRC AM Log is: KDAE Sinton 1000/500 U4, address Corpus Christi and // Radio Libertad.

Now for the research. The main FB page by that name says it`s in El Salvador, with nothing much on it, but URL automatically inserts a dot: /cristotellama.hoy

Searching on KDAE leads to this:
http://www.radiolibertad.net/spanish/radioschedule.htm
of which 1590 is the only AM station, plus a bunch of Texas FMs, but program sked does not match what I heard, tho it has a female pastora. This may well require further monitoring.

Adding Herrera to search on "Cristo te llama hoy" leads to someone named Hna. Madai Herrera:

https://es-la.facebook.com/herrera.madai/
which guess what, is on R. Aleluya, so that takes us back to KMIC Houston, including this item from a week ago at the SAME time:

``Cristo Te Llama Hoy/Hna.Madai Herrera 7 de febrero a las 5:15 Â
#BuenosDias ??
Este es el tema que compartà ayer en la radio. Es mi deseo que pueda ser de bendiciÃn a sus vidas. Y si lo es por favor compÃrtelo con alguien que no ha entregado su vida a Cristo. Hubo Cambio, Madai Herrera, Radio Aleluya 88.1FM - Programa Cristo Te Llama Hoy, 6 de Febrero del 2017, Lunes 7:30pm, PO Box 3262, Pasadena, TX 77501``

So is KMIC still Radio Dabang, or not, or partly that and partly Aleluya?? The latter still claims to be on 980 and 88.1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 5990, Feb 13 at 0101, CRI English via Habana is starting, having failed to cut off after Spanish hour, and splattering upon 5980 in my first Chaski-check; finally cuts off S9+45 at 0101:45* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6941.0-USB, Feb 13 at 0032, strong S9+25 pirate with bluegrass/gospel tune ``Circle Be Unbroken``; 0040 announcement as the Al Fansome Memorial Radio Show, since Al has lost his battle; then ``Amazing Grace`` by Evil Elvis. 0049 DJ is talking about Fansome being sympathetic to gay rights along with his life partner Jay Smilkstein; reading from obit: he was 89, died in Pittsboro, was bureaucrat at Foundation for Utter Slobbery, for 32 years. Enjoyed watching farm animals at the canal (corral?). Burial service at The Bog. 0051 news sounder turns into another song. 0055 intro Al`s favorite song to close out the show, and off at 0059* with no further announcement or ID. Many other logs of it here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,32849.0.html
some as Radio Bob, some as Radio Roast, and some that it was an old show from something else (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 13 circa 0030, JBA carrier from R. Chaski; retune at 0104.5 it`s already off, so autotimer must have undergone another reset earlier since last log. If not, it would have cut off at approx. 0108:18.5 since it`s already been nine days (x 6.67 seconds later each) from Feb 4 when it stopped at 0107:18.5* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sun Feb 12 at 1658 and 1825 chex, no signal at all from R. Munansi, thus WWRB seems off, especially since neighbor 15825 WWCR is fairly audible at 1825. So is R. Munansi gone for good or just troubled now? You never know, as WWRB has never acknowledged it on their website, altho it does show a `Global 2` transmission Sat & Sun 16-22 UT on 15240 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4000-USB, UT Mon Feb 13 at 0109, MARS net right on the shorter edge of 80m band. S9+25 monolog about Texas State `Guard; two-day training session available; participate on VHF net. Is reading from Admin notes: #6, some new members for Texas Army MARS are pending, applications sent to the fort, but got to have HF radios. #7 about ALE, a new version, will have to be installed. #8, online encryption. Abbr`d calls include 6YK, 6BG, need help for net control on some dates. TX7 will help with training. #8 about 2017 hamfests, starting 25 Feb at Orange. Concludes Admin notes, out at 0115. Then contact between TXX and TXL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1864 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday February 12 at 0425 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, 11 minutes into show about Elohim, El Salvador, so started circa 0414, S9+10/20. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 13 at 0037 the 0030 broadcast on WBCQ 9329.95v-CUSB, poor, but frequency has been adjusted closer to nominal after dropping to 9329.6 area. Next:
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.12, Sun Feb 12 at 2150, WBCQ is S9+10 with test transmission from Radio Mi Amigo International. Checked here after hearing first few minutes from 2100 on webcast. Nothing but disco, rock music, test announcements and requests for reports. Do we really need any more rock music??? During this hour I normally listen to `Wind & Rhythm, For Those Who Love Band Music`, on KUCO, and I soon switch over to that.

5130.10-AM, Feb 13 at 0022, WBCQ/Area 51 is very poor with music; so they have tweaked their frequencies since my last report of them further off. Later listened to Johnny Lightning online, but fear 5130 will also be VP for WOR at 0400.

7490.06, UT Mon Feb 13 at 0020, WBCQ with `Le Show`. Instead of his usual shticks, continuous interview until 0056, with unID author, of a book about America`s Wars in the Greater Middle East. Sounds sort of like Scheuer? And at 0056 wrapup I miss his name! Trying to listen to 6941-USB pirate at same time. I think Harry said this originally aired in April 2016. Signal is fading down by now. We can find all about it and hear Le Feb 12 Show again via http://harryshearer.com

Starting at 13:07 into hour: ``Interview with retired colonel, military historian, author: Professor Andrew Bacevich``

Preceded by ``Ralph the Talking Computer``, with a bit about the side effects of Propecia, which acting president Thump is on:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12015-12086, Feb 12 at 1432, approx. range of awful spurhash out of 12050 WEWN transmitter, which is very distorted and hummy on fundamental. Major peak is circa 12030. No doubt that would have ruined Turkey 12035 had I listened before 1425 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13656.0-USB, Feb 13 at 0117, very poor 2-way in unknown language, unseems English or Spanish. Not much else on band, except 13740 RHC, and trace of 13745 Thailand (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
