** CUBA. 13728.284, Jan 15 at 1424, JBA spur // 13700 RHC, i.e. 28.28
kHz displaced, so how about 2 X at 13756.568? Yes! a similar sound at
13756.6 or so. What of the minus side? Audible at 13671.7, 13643.3.
They all fit for first- and second-orders, new ones, and quite unlike
the huge FM spurs sometimes spewing from 13700, not lately. Next day
Jan 16 at 1417, there`s again a spur about 13728.29 Something`s always
wrong at RHC. Also a possibly unrelated carrier which doesn`t compute,
on 13882.92 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15168.4, Jan 15 at 1430, wobbly JBA carrier, which is 28.6
kHz from 15140- RHC, still off-minus, measured at 1504 on 15139.790.
Almost the same spur displacement as just measured from 13700!
Checking the other side, 15111.187, Jan 15 at 1504, JBA carrier, which
is 28.603 kHz below the fundamental, perfect match. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15368.833, Jan 16 at 1423, a new wobbly weak spur // 15230
RHC, but probably out of the other frequency, which is not so offset
now, 15139.993, i.e. +228.84 kHz.

14911.172, Jan 16 at 1430, similar wobbly weak spur, which is 228.821
kHz below, a close match.

15311.521, Jan 16 at 1426, one of the older wobblespurs, which is
171.528 kHz above the fundamental, but I don`t hear the match around

15283 approx., yet another of the older spurs from 15140, is audible
at plus 143 kHz, but not its match circa 14997. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, 6100, 6060, 6000, 5040-, Jan 16 at 0702, The Cuban
Five, all RHC English frequencies are VG and still on with dead air:
apparently not a one of them will now emit another hour of modulation.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** KOREA SOUTH. 1566, Jan 16 at 1341 I start continuous monitoring of
the NW carrier here, until it cut off at 1344:31.5*, i.e. FEBC Jeju,
250 kW HLAZ switching from Japan to China beams. LSR here is 1342.

** MEXICO. 820, Jan 15 at 1344, ``Canal ocho-veinte, A-B-C Radio``
canned ID between tunes, like at almost every break; with WBAP nulled,
which can be very weak here, as XEABCA Mexicali hops in by SRS; just
before, the only SS propagating lower were on 660, 720. Our LSR is
inching earlier, 1342 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 4960, Jan 15 at 0648, VOA relay indeed with dead air
halfway+ thru the semihour break between French and Hausa. Another
example of USG waste of taxpayer money. Or is their juice maybe free
from own hydro? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.735, Jan 16 at 1358-1404, VOT English with `Media
Analysis` editorial amid music breaks; poor copy but about
``Irrational US Mideast policy`` in wake of acting president Drumpf`s
latest threats (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 198 kHz, Jan 15 at 0709, beacon DIW which is 2 kW from Dixon
NC (not DIX); instead of BBC Radio 4. I am having no luck with Euro
LWBC DX, unlike my neighbor Richard Allen with his setup. Dixon is too
insignificant to make the Rand McNally atlas, but coÃrdinates place it
around Jaxonvil/Camp Lejeune near the coast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 2097.3-CW, Jan 16 at 1349 UT, beacon A every dekasecond is
quite audible from Quartzsite AZ, and reliable; checked after the
2263-USB unID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1964 monitoring: confirmed Monday
Jan 14 at 2330 on WRMI 9955, fair; also UT Tuesday Jan 15 at 0030 on
WRMI 7730, very good. Again this week, produxion of WOR 1965 is
delayed until early UT Wednesday, so the next airing Tue Jan 15 at
2030 on WRMI 7780 should have replayed 1964 one more time ---- but
it`s off the air! (5950 & 9395 are on and audible). 7780 back on in

UNIDENTIFIED. 1140, Jan 15 at 1348 UT, plugs for a Relevant Radio app,
interview someone about March for Life, and many more mentions of
Relevant Radio, which is a Catholic network. Loops roughly NE/SW, but
mainly need to null KRMP OKC which is SSE. NRC AM Log has no R.R. on
1140, but that`s because it is not a network covered in the book at
all, not on the list page 291.

Own website has two lists of R.R. stations, neither with any 1140!

The latter being O&Os. Too bad Relevant HQ is unaware of all their
outlets. So:

NRC AM Log does not have many possibilities, i.e. Christian if not
necessarily Catholic, in English. Of course, Protestants and Catholix
are unlikely to coÃxist on same station. One is WVEL Pekin IL, 5 kW
daytimer, ``Central Illinois Christian Voice`` but sked does not
mention R.R.:
Could certainly be propagating as WHAS & WLW are still in at 1400 UT.

Second possibility is WVHF, Kentwood MI, 5 kW direxional daytimer,
with EWTN. That makes it Catholic, but a competitor to Relevant,
unless there has been a flip. WVHF is ``Holy Family Radio`` and its
program this hour is `Catholic Connexion`, from Ave Maria Radio, yet
another Catholic competitor.
Maybe someone know which 1140 around here be really Relevant?

UNIDENTIFIED. 2263-USB, Jan 16 at 1348, JBA 2-way, unknown language.
The 2-3 MHz band is a hugely underutilized resource since most
maritime traffic has quit it, so any such signal is significant. My
old Klingenfuss 2002 Guide did not show anything on this exact
frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

BRAZIL. I am surveying the ZYs on 9 and 11 MHz in the nightmiddle:

11815.014, Jan 9 at 0613, VP assumed R. Brasil Central. This one is
the winner for closeness to nominal frequency.

11855.915 and audibly wobbling, Jan 9 at 0614, some Portuguese talk
from R. Aparecida, S3-S6. This one varies a lot, sometimes above

Only other signals on 25 mb are JBACs from N Korea 11680, 11710,
11735; Cuban jamming or RHC on 11860, 11930, 12000.

9664.686, Jan 9 at 0618, R. Voz MissionÃria is S5-S7. But many other
31m stations are inaudible, presumed off, approx.:

9819-, 9725+, 9675-, 9630+. Maybe SRDA 9565- is still there under the
stupid Cuban jamming. 9725 and 9675 have been gone for some weeks, but
9819 was heard not long ago, and 9630.5 is usually there.

The other ZYs listed in WRTH 2019 without daggers or double-daggers, I
never hear; perhaps some still active at more limited dayparts, not
overnight: 11935, 11915, 11895, 11780, 11765, 9550, 9515; most likely
off-frequency if ever running (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

BRAZIL. Jorge Freitas, Bahia, replies to my survey of 25 & 31m ZYs:

``Hi Glenn,
11915, R GaÃcha, closed
11895, R LegiÃo da Boa Vontade, on
11780, RNA off (Without definition)
11765, closed
9550, R Boa Vontade, on
9515, off (I believe it closed)
9565, Super RÃdio Deus à Amor, on
9675, CanÃÃo Nova, off (I believe it closed)``

BRAZIL. 11780, Jan 11 at 1938, RNA is reactivated here, Brazuguese
at S9-S6 (and no 11775 Anguilla to bother). First reported by Jorge
Freitas, Bahia, ``11780 RNA volta a transmitir. 11 Jan Ãs 0013, o
sinal à bom com leve QRM desde a CRI na mesma frequÃncia``. Then
Wolfgang Bueschel measured it at 0037 on 11780.008.

I hear 11780 again at 0002 Jan 12, S9+10/20 with TC for 10:03, ID only
for EBC, 300 kW on 980. Nothing on 6180 as RNA continues to employ
only one transmitter. This alleviates the collision with China-via-

11780 sked is probably about 10-02 UT, like 6180 had been, i.e. 8 am
to midnight in EBDST. 0159 recheck, 11780 still on good, but signing
off a program, 0200 ``meia-noite`` TC and into news of Bolsinaro

** CHINA [non]. 5910, Jan 14 at 0258, CRI *0300 relay in English via
CUBA is already on, in Chinese. Second harmonic 11820 is a JBA carrier
correlating with RHC 25m fundamentals being weakened. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

140 degrees to ME. Something`s always wrong at RHC -- like not
registering in HFCC so lazy frequency managers elsewhere know about it

** CUBA. 15140-, Jan 14 at 1518, RHC Spanish throwing out lots of
spurs, circa 15311, 15283, 14997, 14968 --- these are the usual two
pairs, at plus/minus 171 and 143 kHz. But also: 15197 & 15083 which
are plus/minus 57 kHz, and another suspicious blob at 14882, which is
258 kHz away from 15140 --- possibly the sum of 143 + 57 + 57?
Something`s always wrong at RHC. Think of all the grist Arnie could
call upon to liven up DXers Unlimited if he would try to explain

OETA will be conducting mandatory maintenance work on our Oklahoma
City tower. Because of this, we are required to reduce power
significantly between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. beginning 8 a.m.,
Jan. 10 to 4 p.m., Jan. 11. This will result in a loss of signal to
viewers watching OETA via antenna.

Weather permitting, power will be restored Jan. 12 and 13. Work will
resume at 8 a.m., Tuesday, Jan. 15 and is scheduled to be completed at
4 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 17. Weâd like to thank everyone viewing OETA

Also an update on the Foundation situation:


``FAQs about OETA and the OETA Foundation
Posted by Aaron Morvan on Jan 11, 2019 at 11:06 pm

Q. Whatâs going on?

A. The Foundationâs Board of Trustees authorized a lawsuit to be filed
against OETA. The Foundation has failed to provide proper oversight
over their organization and allowed it to ignite this controversy by
denying access to parts of the shared facility, changing the locks,
hacking into OETAâs system, withholding funds, and ultimately suing us
in a blatant power grab.

In response, OETAâs governing Board has terminated OETAâs agreement
with the Foundation in order to protect donor funds, information, and
OETAâs integrity. OETA employees and governing Board members are
focused on continued delivery of quality, life-enriching public media
to Oklahomans. We are proud to carry on the six decades of work that
have made OETA the most-watched PBS station in America. Programming
and operations are ongoing and not presently impacted by OETAâs
termination of its agreement with the Foundation.

Q. What happened to the relationship between OETA and its foundation?

A. This is an interesting story.

More than 30 years ago the state legislature passed a law that allowed
OETA to set up a charitable foundation to support OETA.

For most of those 30 years the relationship between OETA and the
Foundation worked well.

Within the last five years dissention arose between the two and the
Foundation began repeatedly attempting to interfere with OETA
operations and to unduly influence OETAâs state governing Board. OETA
tried to correct the problems through repeated meetings but the
problems only grew worse.

The Foundation today refuses to give OETA access to our donor funds
and how they have been used. The Foundation has locked OETA employees
out of multiple areas within the OETA building. OETA is the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) licensee and responsible for its
operations, programming and donor finances. The Foundation is a
fundraising auxiliary and should not be attempting to also function as
public television station.

Last month the Foundation sued OETA to try and seize even more
control. OETA countered the suit in the courts asking the judge to
drop the frivolous claims made in the Foundation lawsuit.

As a last resort, the OETA Board, accountable to the State of Oklahoma
and charged with ensuring OETAâs viability and compliance with laws
and regulations, officially terminated the agreement with the
Foundation and began the process of identifying a new charitable
organization to responsibly oversee donor funds and to retrieve the
donor money already raised, putting it to proper use as required by
the FCC and Corporation for Public Broadcasting and, most importantly,
as intended by our donors.

Q. Is the money Iâve already given to OETA safe?

A. OETA has advised the Foundation that we consider all funds, assets,
property, and information they possess to be held solely and
exclusively for the benefit of OETA. The Foundation has affirmed this
on multiple occasions. We are confident, once the Foundationâs lawsuit
is resolved, those generous gifts will be honored as the donors
intended and used to support OETA.

Q. Can I still give money to OETA?

A. OETA has temporarily suspended accepting new donations as we
finalize negotiating a relationship with the Friends of OETA, Inc.
charitable organization. We are moving as quickly as possible to
resume donations and fundraising but we take seriously the charge to
shepherd funds given and funds that will be given in a manner that is
transparent and ethical.

Q. Is a state agency (OETA) trying to take over the Foundation?

A. No. The Foundation was originally created by a diverse group of
philanthropic Oklahomans to serve OETA and unfortunately has since
become a rogue organization. They have refused to provide basic
information crucial to the operation of OETA. Donor funds, given in
good faith, have been misappropriated for unauthorized programming and
unsolicited content creation and production. Donors have been lied to
about the collection and use of their well-intended donations. OETA, a
state agency, is simply choosing to select a new, more responsible
charity to cooperate with in order to protect its donors and their

Q. Who is leading OETA and how did they get there?

Dr. Richard Beck, Provost Rogers State University
Terri Cornett, Civic Volunteer
Dr. Cheryl Evans, President Northern Oklahoma College
Mr. James Gallogly, OU President
Mr. Burns Hargis, OSU President
Ms. Joy Hofmeister, Oklahoma Superintendent
Mr. Reese "Cody" Inman, Civic Volunteer
Dr. Glen D. Johnson, Chancellor Oklahoma State Regents
Mr. Garrett King - Board Chair
Ms. Suzanne Lair, Principal Jenks Public Schools
Dr. Larry Rice, President Rogers State University
Mr. Clarke Stroud, Director OU Football Operations

Public media veteran Polly Andersonâs leadership as Executive
Director has been an outstanding asset to OETA since her hiring just
over one year ago. She continues to have the full support of the OETA
Board of Directors.

Q. Has OETA really refused a legislative meeting with the Foundation?

A. OETA has met with state legislative and executive officials
regarding our ongoing efforts over a multi-year period, including as
recently as Monday, January 7, 2019. At Mondayâs meeting, OETA
clearly outlined the reasons it believes that, short of decisive
action by the few remaining members of the Foundationâs Board of
Trustees, termination of the relationship is the only remaining option
to protect public television in Oklahoma. Additionally, OETA leaders
met repeatedly with the Foundation to resolve these issues outside of
the courts. The Foundation staff continued to overstep the authority
granted to them by state law and continued to willfully mislead
donors, withholding funds and duplicating the functions of the state
agencyâthey even went so far as to defy the direct orders of the
Foundationâs governing board, leading to multiple resignations from
that body in 2018 of longtime OETA supporters.

Q. Why did OETA evict the Foundation from the building they formally

A. The Foundation has used the OETA facility as a guest of OETA.
Recently, the Foundation staff restricted access to OETA personnel
within the OETA headquarters, changed the locks on the building,
hacked OETAâs state computer network, and recently reported to OETA
that they installed an unauthorized video surveillance system. The
responsible action on the part of OETA as a state agency to protect
state employees and state assets was clear.

The Foundation had become a totally unaccountable organization â
operating outside its intended statutory and fiscal boundaries and
acting in defiance of its earlier earlier governing board members,
leading to the resignation of several longtime Foundation Trustees and
OETA supporters. Despite over two years of negotiations and good
faith efforts on the part of OETA to bring our Foundation back to its
intended role, the Foundation recklessly and maliciously resisted all
civil efforts and refused to negotiate multiple proposed reforms.
Therefore, it is necessary and prudent to clearly separate our
operational functions at this time and to prevent the Foundation from
further undermining of the state agency it was established to serve.

Q. Why wonât OETA cash checks amounting to over $ 1.2 million provided
by the Foundation?

A. OETA conducts the stewardship of all funds with the utmost caution
and integrity. OETA is working with our federal and state regulators,
including the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Oklahoma
Attorney Generalâs office, to ensure proper accounting and handling of
these funds.

Q. How does OETA fit into PBS/Corporation for Public Broadcasting?

A. OETA is a PBS member station and a CPB grantee. Although the
Foundation has repeatedly attempted to misrepresent OETA to our
federal regulators and partners, the Foundation has no relationship
with PBS or the CPB outside of OETA. OETA has a very positive
relationship with both PBS and CPB and has kept both entities advised
of the ongoing issues with the Foundation.

Q. Where does OETA go from here?

A. OETA is working through this complex situation in consultation with
state legislative and executive officials and our federal regulators.
We are committed to the outstanding programming that has made it the
most-watched PBS-station in America. We are diligently working to
secure all past and present donor funds with a new and responsible
charitable foundation that will be governed by an independent board of
philanthropic and ethical individuals who can cooperate with OETAâs
governing board in a mutually-beneficial relationship.``

I then wrote to OETA:

``I am sure everyone is concentrating on the terrible Foundation
situation, and thanks for explaining that on website. I don`t see any
names of individuals at the F who must be responsible for this. Is it
a few people in a power struggle?

But a couple of things:

How about some explanation of the reason for abruptly disposing of
OKLA and replacing it with World?? Interesting stuff, I am not
necessarily objecting. Is this in any way related to the Foundation

However some programming seems to have got lost in the shuffle; surely
you could still find some places for it on one channel or another:

Ray Stevens
Bluegrass Underground
(maybe the last two have run their course; we can`t know)

I am glad to see Amanpour out of 10 pm to a more convenient time, 11
am, as I had requested some time ago. Thanks and good luck!``


``We hope that you are enjoying OETA World! Our programming department
has been working on this for some time and it debuted this past
Monday, January 7th. I believe that they promoted it on the OETA
channels for a while beforehand thruout the day before World
premiered. Nothing whatsoever tied to the Foundation matters was a
part of debuting World, as OETA World can be found in over 150 some
odd television markets out of the 160 some odd markets across the
country. Our viewers were asking for new programs and this is what
OETA World does â it allows us to re-air our local content on Saturday
evenings and on Sunday mornings early until noon we re-air our British
dramas, including Masterpiece Theater. And beyond that, thru the week
there are many new programs to discover plus all of the shows you are
familiar with like Frontline, Independent Lens, POV, Nature, NOVA,

Well, with any type of lawsuit or even police investigations -
information has to be limited due to the nature of it all until it has
concluded. Hopefully what has been provided does help our viewers at
this time and when we can update information for them it will be
provided I'm sure. In the meantime, enjoy all of the good viewing on
OETA and have a great day. Respectfully, Kristi Wren, Receptionist``

Follow up: ``We will air BLUEGRASS UNDERGROUND sometime on HD (13-1)
but RAY STEVENS doesnât have a date at this time. As soon as I know
even more info Iâll advise or it may even be promoted on air between
current programming. Respectfully, Kristi Wren, Receptionist``

I am also having to re-convince OETA that there is a totally separate
and new PBS NEWSHOUR WEEKEND edition on Sundays, after Saturdays

until Tuesday at the earliest, probably like last week, not even by
the 2030 airing on WRMI 7780; this is only due to my running so far
behind in processing info, also causing DXLDs to appear almost a week
after closing dates.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6990-LSB, Jan 14 at 0552, the aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh-guy is
back uttering Japanesish syllables with long vocalized pauses,

what some of them sound like: kinata, kita, katana, noto, nata, itati,
atata, kinata, itawa, ishotu, kata, kunoto, sijimata, hanata, kata,
hotokono, pinata, isashana, ishaba, koshodo, ishiba - and then stops
abruptly at 0555*. Since he is on LSB, only 10 kHz out of the 40m

** CUBA. 6165 // 6000, Jan 13 at 0649, RHC English remains
undermodulated on both, S9+20, somewhat louder on 6100 and loudest on
6060. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 15139.825, Jan 13 at 1524, RHC seems off-frequency all the
time now; also with JBA spurs circa 14968 & 15311 at earlier 1441
check, but not on 14997 & 15283. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But
nothing`s wrong on 13 MHz band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH. 5923, Jan 13 a 1527 narrow-band noise centered here,
rather like DRM, but must be jamming against the JBA carrier on 5920
of V of Freedom, Korea South (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

and comes unpredictably (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) But:

Arabish talk starts, S8-S5. Aoki shows R. Dabanga via Meyerton is
supposed to run 1529-1600; must be getting a headstart. HFCC shows FPU
from 1530-, 250 kW at 5 degrees after a hefty 25 degree slew. Axually
the FPU program feed until 1529 is probably Radio Tamazuj, not
supposed to be on 15350 at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 6125.0, Jan 13 at 0421, VP signal from algo, presumably V
of Turkey English to N America as scheduled, altho can`t be positive
since it`s not on 6125.7 tonight; at least this transmission exist,
after hearing nothing at 2300 on 5960. You might assume the 0400 is on
a more westerly beam than at 2300 for E NAm, but you would be wrong;
per HFCC, both are the same 310 degrees, which crosses USA from NYC to
Pensacola --- so beyond that the signal gets worse and worse. WNAm is
not even a CIRAF-6 target for either.

BTW, Alan Roe reports: ``The Voice of Turkey "Letterbox Programme" is
now being aired weekly on the Saturday programme (rather than Friday),

UNIDENTIFIED. 9000, Jan 13 at 1517, the open carrier I was hearing
yesterday afternoon is still here, S9-S7. Art Delibert replies Jan 13
to my previous report:

``Glenn -- I'm noticing the same het [carrier] on 9 MHz at 1218 hours.
Running the SAL12 antenna around the compass, it's strongest (S9) in
the SE direction, but pretty good in just about every direction.
Doesn't seem to be any propagation fading. Not much is making it
through on 31 meters at the moment, except some of the big CRI xmtrs,
mostly with my antenna pointed SW. So I'm thinking this thing on 9 MHz
is located somewhere along the southern portion of the mid-Atlantic
coast, like maybe the Norfolk area -- Art Delibert, N. Bethesda, MD``
