** CANADA. 2749-USB, April 2 at 0637 UT, unusual to hear anything in
the nightmiddle, but marine weather info in French with English
accent; millibars and direxions mentioned, also Matane several times
which is a QuÃbec city on the Gaspà coast NE of Rimouski. Stops at
0639* and nothing now on 2598-USB either. I cannot find a 2019
schedule on the Canadian Coast Guard site, just 2018:
http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Marine-Communications/RAMN-2018/Part2#21
which does not show anystation ending around 0640 UT; and it has never
been clear to me whether these stations stay on UT or make DST shifts!
CCG 2018 sked does show VCO Sydney NS *starting at 0740 UT via Port
Caledonia site, English only, which would now be *0640 if DST be
observed. Nor does this version:
http://dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm#O%20ATL

Bill Hepburn replies already to an advance copy of the above:

``Hi Glenn, That could've just been an unscheduled broadcast with a
marine warning or an amended forecast. Unscheduled broadcasts are not
that uncommon. I've heard lots of them over the years. They also
interrupt the VHF continuous marine broadcasts.

From the RAMN: "MCTS Centres broadcast marine safety information
through continuous, scheduled and unscheduled broadcasts to provide
mariners with information such as weather bulletins, ice information,
and notices to shipping (NOTSHIP) concerning the operational status of
navigational aids and dangers to navigation."

BTW, broadcast times noted in UT remain on UT regardless of ST/DT
status. The RAMN's are now updated on an ongoing basis - so it's
always the latest issue. You can check the amendment dates on the
Amendment Register on page i. The "year" changes in April, the
official annual issue time.

My guess is that you heard Escoumins Coast Guard Radio broadcasting
from its site on Grindstone Island, QC. Regards, Bill Hepburn``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Monday April 1 at 2302, no signal from RHC for `Mesa
Redonda` TV soundtrack, which is S9+30 on only // 11950. So no ACI
this side of 5995 Mali. By 2306, 6000 has come on too. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 2 at 0625, this RHC English is off; 6060 is loud
S9+30 with music; 6100 is S9+30 but undermodulated with hum; 6165 only
S7 and u/mod. At 0629, 5040 starts `Focus on Africa` with a song from
Sierra Leone, good S9+20. So English span is now more-or-less 23-07.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13820, April 2 at 1338, residual lite jamming on
ex-Martà frequency, while heavier jamming seems now under replacement
13605 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 13735, April 2 at 1340, YL speaking, S4 with flutter. HFCC
shows nothing but VIRI in Russian, 1320-1430, 500 kW, 336 degrees from
Sirjan. One of few signals on band besides Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 5980, April 2 at 1413, RNZI is S9-S6, poor
maybe with SAH; Ron Howard reports that Shiokaze/Sea Breeze has
started using two frequencies at once, including this one for the
daily 1405-1435 Japanese broadcast, // 6090 (and the 1300-1400
including Thursday English is on 5920 // 6070). JIC continues to
demonstrate incompetence in frequency management, as NZ is not the
only collision. Will Adrian keep it there? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Monday April 1 at 2201, REE in English, with what
else, music, in this case a blues band visiting and then Justin Coe
interviews a Jeff. So for A-18, English has shifted one UT hour
earlier to 2200-2230 M/W/F. Should also be on the other three, 12030,
11940, 11670. Come on, Justin, suppress your mÃsica-sobretodo-mania
and give us some news, even analysis of current events in Spain! Or
would that be too unsafe under circumstances? Secret REE Arabic should
now be at 2130, M-F? on 12030, 11670, unchecked yet (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830.05 approx., April 1 at 2228, VOT English to N America
for A-19, no RTTY QRM, only slightly off-frequency+plus, pending a
crash to 9830.7v one of these days. (I also must cope with a constant
local device JBA carrier slightly off 9830.000.) But something else is
already wrong: 2259 still on with IS, and 2300, 2-second-late, 6-pip
mis-timesignal and into GERMAN! still past 2305 check, just like
sloppyrators at Emiler would do in B-season after 0000 on 5960.
Fortunately now there are no legitimate broadcasters to collide on
9830 after 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1975 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday April 2 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG; also at 0100 on 7780,
S9/+10, F-G. Next:

** U S A. 9955, Monday April 1 at 2140, Radio Free Grenada ID for
15105 kHz! It`s featured on `La Rosa de Tokio` this week via WRMI;
later discusses Radio Swan. This show and `Historias de Radio` provide
a *lot* of historical SW info with clips (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, April 2 at 0622, S9+40/50 of dead air, obviously WWCR
transmitter normally off at this time; equivalent level to 5935 with
DGS modulation. What of the other two? 4840 at 0630 is also dead air
of S9+30, instead of Alex Jones? (who has admitted he is psychotic) -
-- no, scheduled InfoWars until 0600, then TOMBS here too; 3215 at
0633 is S9+20 with double-audio! at about equal level: TOMBS and
something mentioning 1-800-VENUSLIVE (?). Both are on both LSB and
USB; the least WWCR could do would be to separate them sidebandedly.
Own WWCR program sked dated April 1 shows 3215 is supposed to be OFF
the air at 05-09! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4810, April 2 at 0630, steady weak carrier here, vs
utehash on plus side. Aoki thinx R. Logos, Perà runs 0900-2400 only;
EiBi B-18 shows 1000-1300 & 2300-0226. WRTH 2019 is noncommittal as to
hours. Could also be a ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5800, April 2 at 0623, OM solo song, VP S4-S5, need LSB
to avoid ute QRM plus. No legit broadcasters scheduled here except:
Guess what ---- now registered in Jeff`s A-19 HFCC is WRMI available
24 hours on 5800 via 181 degree Cuban antenna; but surely not this
now, far too weak. Nor is it a Cuban spur as one must always consider.

Checking full HFCC, 5800 and 11580 24h are the only RMI listings not
(yet?) in use, but most current frequencies are registered beyond
their axual hours.

However, Free Radio Service Holland publicized activity as of March 31
on 5800 i.a., but not mentioned at this specific time. Here`s what
FRSH says:
http://www.frsholland.nl/20-latest-news/129-frs-holland-on-air-on-sunday-march-31st-2019.html
So it could well be some other Europirate now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

Note: there are still no April Fool items in this report, etc., etc., etc.

against no MartÃ, which seems jamfree on 7335 // 7365. Way to go,
incompetent DCJC on first day of new season! HFCC A-19 registrations
for IBB in Spanish from Greenville-B, which mean precisely nothing but
RM:
23-03 7365 00-07 7335 00-12 6030 03-05 7435 05-07 7365 07-10 5980
10-13 9805 10-14 7335 12-14 7365 13-20 13605 14-20 11860 M-F
14-24 11930 20-24 9565
We sincerely hope this non-classified info assist DCJC to jam correct
frequencies and no others! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, April 1 at 0049, RHC English is instead S9+20 of dead
air; while 6000 has undermodulated music at S9+10/20. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11670, April 1 at 0100, RHC news theme for Spanish is S9 but
JBM, much softer than 11700, 11760, 11840 and its 11830/11850 spurs.
Spain is now scheduled on 11670 until 2300 so will those ever collide?
Not sure when RHC start, where something always be wrong (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, April 1 at 0544, RHC English survey during music: this
one is S9-S6 and JBM; 6100 S9+10 suptorted; 6060 S9+20 slightly
distorted and Algerian Qur`anRM is gone! 6000 S9/+10 JBM and
distorted; 5040 S9+30 about like 6060.

Rechecking at 0606+, 6165 JBM; 6100 undermod; 6000 OFF; 6060 & 5040
both with CCI --- no it`s not, rather undercurrent during voice-over
translation, self-QRM! When will SW stations ever learn to fade the VO
down completely once briefly established?? Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4764.999, April 1 at 0327, R. Progreso VG signal measured
here with margin of error of 2 Hz at most. And it matches 5025 BFO
pitch. Anker Petersen, Denmark has been reporting this as 4765.02,
such as March 24 at 0330, but I have never noticed them that far off
in BFO 1-kHz-step bandscans. Some of his other logs such as Eritrea
and Mali appear to be measured +.01 or +.02 too high. Please check
receiver calibration vs WWV or the like (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7180.024, April 1 at 0325, JBA carrier, presumed VOBME,
but nothing on other channel 7140+; nor still inactive Somaliland 7120
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 12005, April 1 at 1418, SW Asian music S7-S8, from
Radio Farda, eastward from Woofferton at 13-18 (also Lampertheim at
11-13) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 9625, April 1 at 1420, Japanese lesson for English
with arpeggios, as NHK 1400-1430 is now here, due west from PALAU.
Ignore all the South Africa listings on 9625 still in HFCC A-18 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995.000V, April 1 at 0550, R. Mali is already on with song
of lament in French, S9 and best heard yet. 0556 apparent switch to IS
repeating; 0557 military-band NA, sign-on in French I copy partially
vs distraxions, including ``Ici l`Office de Radiodiffusion TÃlÃvision
du Mali, ÃmÃttant de Bamako,`` and decades-outdated frequency list
including 4783 and another on 60m! And 92 MHz FM (four-score and
twelve). With BFO, frequency wavers very slightly. By 0602 is in non-
French, probably Bambara. Anker Petersen, Denmark, has reported this
on 5995.02, such as March 25 at 2120, but again I think his
measurement is way off. Please calibrate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5980, April 1 at 1416, RNZI is poor S5-S7 on new
frequency, bad for us. Maybe usable somewhat from *1259 if the Cuban
jammers be turned off in time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6889-USB, March 31 at 2227, folk/rock song at S3-S4,
not rechecked until 0038 April 1 when it`s off. Already at 2232* per
several logs of this pirate as Evergreen Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,52472.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7420, April 1 at 0043, Balkan music, good S9+20; at first
imagined Greece ex-9420 or mistake? EPT is usually silent early UT
Mondays; in fact this is the RRI Romanian service now, as spoken at
0054 and // 9790.

7375, April 1 at 0044, RRI English now here giving schedule during a
mailbag, much stronger than // 6040 at 0048 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST) See also SAO TOME 6080

** SAO TOME [and non]. 6080+, April 1 at 0548, VOA news magazine in
English, S9+20 but with fast SAH CCI. We already know Pinheira is the
one off-frequency, but now the collider is RRI in English, 300 kW to W
Europe and USWard at 0530-0600, also French 0500-0530, while VOA runs
04-07. How is this acceptable to HFCC?? Surprised RRI be the
understation, but that may change with conditions (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 31 at 2225, VOT in English, S8-S9 with flutter,
back on always-A-season frequency to North America at 22 instead of
5960 at 23 in Bs. No RTTY now, but 9830 fully occupied earlier in day:
we can only hope it will always quit by 2158. Will Emirler knock this
one off to 9830.7 at times too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U K. 7300, April 1 at 0040, sounds like BBCWS in science magazine,
now about LEO satellites, S9/+10. 0058 wrap up `Science in Axion`,
0059.5* chop off. HFCC shows Woofferton eastward this hour only.
Offers a decent chance to hear in its long-abandoned N American target
area (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 245 kHz, April 1 at 0612 UT, ND beacon FS is JBA! Is at
Rock, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, 400 watts per dxinfocentre. LW storm
noise level is unusually low so I take advantage for some sleepytime
beepery.

293 kHz, April 1 at 0615 UT, ND beacon FBY, which is 25 watts from
Fairbury, Nebraska.

329 kHz, April 1 at 0618, ND beacon PMV, 25 watts from Plattsmouth,
Nebraska (a flood area, I think). Also logged one from CANADA, q.v.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1975 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov,
Bulgaria, reports: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on
7265 CUSB, March 31
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/04/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on.html
1031-1100 on 7265 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, weak``

Confirmed Sunday March 31 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, poor S5-S7.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 1 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+20 (and
still not on 5950).

Also confirmed UT Monday April 1 after 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair S9/+10.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 1 from 0301 on Area 51 webcast; and at
0323 on WBCQ 5130.41, VP and not // 3264.9.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 1 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, JBA. Next:

** U S A. 7490.15v, UT Mon April 1 at 0045, sacred choral music, S9+10
on `Encore` from Radio Tumbril via WBCQ. Brice Avery in Edinburgh is
disappointed in lack of listener response to his new WBCQ broadcasts,
in the form of QSL requests. Lack of any listing on the outdated WBCQ
program schedule, nor any publicity on its website, surely do not
help. Still showing for UT Mon 00-01 on 7490 is `Shoot the Darn
Messenger`. He welcomes music requests and has had much better
response to broadcasts via Channel 292 in Germany. Let`s show him some
support! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Area 51 webcast flowed on, UT Mon Apr 1 at 0400 after HRI
and WBCQ 5130v presumably closed down --- with `Church of the
Subgenius Hour of Slack`, reveling in how many F-bombs could be
exploded on internet only. I had thought that show was a bit more
erudite (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, April 1 at 0050, WWRB reactivated on A-frequency with
politico-gospel huxters at S9+40. Likely the only frequency in use, no
more 3185 or 3215; unless some Ugandans give it another try (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, April 1 at 0541, WRNO is S5-S9 of dead air; in
Chinese or English? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST
