Logs
1710.01 PIRATE (NA) UNID. Came on at 2201:15 with "The One" by
Elton John already in progress. You could see the tell-tale sign of the
'hook' as the carrier came on. Started out on 1710.02 and drifted down.
The audio was brought up and lowered several times over the following 2
minutes or so. Definitely not QSB. Surprised to hear an anmnt at 2206
in which a M seemed to ment. "...free radio...". Too much Flight 93 TIS
QRM to copy more. Song by The Carpenters at 2209 followed by a EST TC
and song anmnt at 2210. 2218 another song anmnt and TC as "...going
home time is 5:18". So definitely live. All but 1 song changeover was
down in the mud. Finally went off at 2300:40. (Valko 29 Jan.)

6973 PIRATE (ARGENTINA) Lupo R. Found w/LA and Tango mx
again from 0223. 0231, 0234, 0244 same W anncr as hrd before, but too
weak to copy. Still going at 0246 t/out. (Valko 30 Jan.)

6540.79 PIRATE?? Weak signal w/Rock music w/an occasional Metal
and Punk song from 0804 t/in. Short apparent song anmnts by M in
(non-UK) EG at 0810 and 0820. Too weak to copy. Only recognized a
remake of "Green Tambourine" at 0844 and went off suddenly at 0847:03.
Was also getting audio on web rx in Uniontown PA, Alberta Canada, Miami,
FL, and Warrenton VA, the latter being the best. Also had the signal
w/out any audio in Washington state, and Michigan, and I believe 2
receivers in the UK. Thought at first it might be a EuroPirate, but it
shouldnât have been hrd w/audio as far west as Alberta. Then thought a
possible spur, but no //âs found anywhere. Only possibilities are a NA
Pirate or harmonic of 1090. If a NA Pirate, is a strange time/day for
one. Not hrd the next morning. (Valko 30 Jan.)

6024.96 BOLIVIA Red Patria Nueva From 1026 t/in w/M and W hosts
w/apparent âBolivia Informaâ nx pgm. Many remote phoned-in rpts.
1029-1035 ad/promo block including ID at 1032:25 several nice IDs in
promo at 1033:10. Fortunately the Cuban jammer went off at this time.
6030 OC came on 1045 causing some QRM. Then someone on 6020 blasted it
out at 1058. (Valko 30 Jan.)

4875.26 BRAZIL R. Difusora Roraima Tremendous signal like a local
at 0256 w/PT contemporary mx. 0259 jingle and TC, then full canned ID
by M, and into Claptonâs acoustic version of his âLaylaâ. (Valko 31
Jan.)

1710 PIRATE (NA) R. Reten que lo Tenes Agonizingly long
rel.-like song to 0830, then caught one of the SP IDs at 0830:40 when
the Hudson Co. TIS finally faded. On the web rx in Kingwood TX, there
were a ton of IDs in succession from 0830 past 0831, some giving their
website, and AM and FM freqs. When I checked back at 0841, they were
airing the usual live impassioned preaching. Hrd on the Wellbrook but
not on the Delta Loop oddly enough. (Valko 31 Jan.)

6215U HONG KONG VRC Marine Rescue R. (UTE) 1030 just caught
end of EG ID by M as I tuned in. Unfortunately I wasnât recording.
Readable signal much like VMW on 6230 above. Hrd another xmsn at
1233-1234 w/M sounding like wx w/ment of numbers and possibly
âvisibilityâ. Too weak at this time.(Valko 31 Jan.)

Logs
** ALBANIA [non]. 5850, Jan 30 at 2327, music ending R. Tirana relay via WRMI, then IS at 2328, so still funxioning from 2300, Mon-Sat; very good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Jan 30 at 2335 check, Caribbean Beacon is off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4875.251, Jan 31 at 0055, JBA carrier from presumed R. Roraima, Boa Vista, the northernmost ZY SW station. Always off-frequency but has been reported as high at 4875.3 and as low as 4874.9 lately; I`ve never caught it on the low side (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1915, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 7493, Jan 30 at 2328-2330+, JBA carrier, enough to make a het if one listen carefully against BS via WBCQ 7489.94. It`s Voice of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN, quite coincidentally here, as reported by Ivo Ivanov:
2300-2305 on 7493 DB 100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
2305-2330 on 7487 DB 100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
2330-2335 on 7493 DB 100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
2335-2345 on 7487 DB 100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
2345-2400 on 7488 DB 100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan

Very subject to change in the exact switchover times, as not on 7487 when first heard, or to a totally different group of frequencies. ChiCom jamming could stay on 7490 for these, but no close het heard to WBCQ; nor 7485, 7495, depending on proximity (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1915, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960.054, Jan 30 at 2337, Turkish music on VOT, S8 to S9+10. Habitually off-frequency, but more so than usual on this one. Off the air an hour later, so no bonus German (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1914 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue Jan 30 at 0038, the 0030 on WRMI 7730, very good; same time on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: nothing audible. Also confirmed Tue Jan 30 at 2030 on WRMI 7780, fair but better than somewhat stronger // 9455 which has Firedragon QRM. Not a good idea ever to share a frequency with Radio Free Asia! Also confirmed Tue Jan 30 at 2130 on WRMI 9455, now with less CCI.

WORLD OF RADIO 1915 contents: Albania non, Anguilla, Armenia, Bahrain, Bolivia, Bonaire, Bouvet, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cuba, Denmark, Ethiopia non, Germany, Hawaii and non, India, Indonesia, Korea North & South, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria non, Russia, Sikkim, South Africa, South Carolina, Tibet non, UK, USA, Zambia; and the propagation outlook.

WOR 1915 ready by 2230 UT Jan 30, too late for the WRMIs above, but in time for WBCQ, UT Wed Jan 31 at 0030, but as usually the case, no signal detectable. Next:

Wed 1030 WRMI 9455 to WNW

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 7780, Mon Jan 29 at 2115 check, once again WRMI is running Oldies music instead of scheduled `The Power Hour` at 21-23 weekdays. Didn`t check if TPH started off OK today at 2100, as it had the last several days only to find Oldies going later in same hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3185 & 3215, UT Tue Jan 30 at 0119 check, WWRB is on neither frequency, while it had been active Jan 29 at 0218 on 3185; and Jan 28 at 0138 on 3215.

Also received this from Dave Frantz of WWRB, Jan 29 at 1236 UT:

``Beacon experiments --- Hey Glenn, I run some beacon experiments on 475 kc, you should be able to copy. The beacon is carrier phase encoded for my experiment plus has the ID N/A every 15 seconds using space modulation. Experiment. You can hear it with regular AM radio. Let me know how copy.``

Dave, Tried last night but no go. Early evening and around 0700 UT. Would it also be audible, or better audible with SSB/BFO on??

Haven`t heard or heard about your 529 beacon for a long time. Is that off the air for good? (Glenn to Dave, Jan 30, via WORLD OF RADIO 1915, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

? what is ``space modulation``? Beacon was last reported in 2012y, from 2007y: ``529, TENNESSEE, Morrison, LYQ (WQHL966, NDB aero beacon)`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier searches, on the R75 with usual E-W longwire of about 100`, so no DFing, but better sensitivity than on the handheld DX-398 I often use for TPs around sunrise. Normally run full bore Preamp 2, but to reduce overload on MW for this, Preamp 1 or no preamp.

Method: USB, set to 9 kHz steps offset 1 kHz below the 9-kHz plan, so I can hear, or not, a 1 kHz het, sometimes even amid heavy QRM 1 or 2 kHz away. 10-kHz even channels where they coincide with 9-kHz spacing are not included, of course, and some 9 kHz channels are blocked by IBOC peaks from US stations. Many are JJJBA, but the strongest ones get a * even tho still not enough to pull any audio. Not necessarily logged in the order shown, but rearranged for convenient reference:

Jan 20 at 0143-0158 UT: 531, 621, 639, 648, 666, 684, 693, 729, 774, 837, 855, 882, 909, 936*, 1044, 1053, 1125, 1215, 1296, 1503, 1575.

Jan 20 at 0227-0230 UT: 531, 549, 558, 621, 639, 711(2 beating), 729, 774, 855, 864, 882, 909, 936, 1008, 1053*, 1089, 1098, 1116, 1125, 1161, 1215, 1341, 1413.

Jan 20 at 0720-0723 UT, some are still coming in, most likely from NW Europe: 558, 693, 846 [could be Kiritimati, which is what I have always assumed when checking only 846], 909, 936, 1044, 1053, 1116, 1197, 1215.

Jan 21 at 0058-0102 UT: 576, 693, 828, 837, 855, 882, 935, 999, 1044, 1053*, 1089, 1179, 1197, 1215*, 1575. No doubt experienced TA DXers on east coast can make good guesses about many of these (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
