** ANGUILLA. 11775, July 25 at 1736 check, CB is still off. Current situation appears to be active on night frequency 6090, not on day frequency (or 6090 could be running all day? Check whether it cut off circa 1000 or fade in before 2200) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, UT Wednesday July 26 at 0100, I happen to be on the road, so without the usual distraxions, listen to the entire RAE Argentina to the World hour. Usual good reception from WRMI on the BSR-1 caradio, but occasional fades and crosstalk from something else which attenuation would probably have ridded.

Fernando opens the broadcast claiming this is the Tuesday 0700 airing on 5850 and 7730. Must be playing the wrong file --- but does it really make any difference? Originally they pledged to update the news during the intervening 6 hours, which would hardly be worth the trouble overnight in Bs As. Are there any other changes?

Fernando says he is back on air after a week off visiting Uruguay with his family. In his always very informal style the news follows, and I do have the impression he is translating it from original Spanish on the fly, rather than prepared in advance. Annoying music bed continues to be played during the news, brief fade-ups between items.

Next show at 0116 is `Argentines with No Frontiers`, interviewing Lourdes Rivera, an Argentine lawyer in Manhattan after going to Cornell in Ithaca. 0138 final segment is by YL about ``RaÃl Carnota(?), Innovator``, self-taught musician and guitarist, with lots of music segments. The multi-lingual ID reel played only thrice, at 0105, 0115, 0155, finally followed by headlines, frequency announcement and a bit more music.

After 0200 I am still tuned to 9395 and hear Radio Prague in English. Yes, that now shows on the skedgrid, with 9395 Oldies not resuming until 0230, which is when Prague plays again on 11580, after Ukraine at 0200 --- but too weak to confirm that here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7585, July 25 at 0311, JBA carrier, tnx tip from Rick Barton, AZ, that anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH was back on the air, but very weak for him until off at 0312*. Had not been reported since June 30. Not heard by Ron Howard or Volodya Salmaniw then, but Walt had Josiah the next night July 26 at 0220 an hour before BC sunset with fair signal and good modulation; not rechecked here yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 24, July 25 at 1420 UT, KOKH ``25`` OKC megawatt is unusually breaking up as if suffering from CCI. Tropo map shows some enhancement in OK & KS, but no other channels are showing anything unusual. This happens on one of my antennas, but not the other, maybe a fluke.

Nearest other RF 24s are per W9WI.com: K24IW-D in Ardmore, close to same heading as OKC, 500 watts but CP for 15 kW; the KTUL Tulsa booster really in McAlester, 600 watts (and application for a 700-watt one in Bartlesville(?)) both listed as ``Tulsa``. Reversely there are four CPs in Kansas afar, Colby, Chapman, and Russell, obviously assigned in a row as K24LE, LF and LG; and Wichita CP anear, KGPT-CD with 15 kW.

BTW, KOKH on 25-2 is now Charge! for some time, not Grit as in W9WI.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1887 monitoring: confirmed Monday July 24 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.2v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Tuesday July 25 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, good.

Since we have lost any Thursday or Friday airtimes on WRMI, but there are plenty on Tuesday and Wednesday, I have decided from this week, July 25, to produce WORLD OF RADIO a day earlier on Tuesdays (subject to change if I just can`t get it done in time). So the first WRMI broadcast will be Tuesday at 2130 on 9455 & 15770, rather than having to wait until Saturday at 2300 on 11580. First on WBCQ also Tuesday at 2330 on 9330v-CUSB instead of Thursday. And the only 7490 WBCQ airing Wednesday at 2100 will be fresh instead of a week old (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Viz.:

Hi! Heard Worldofradio Tuesday [July 25] over WRMI, 2130 UT, 15770. SINPO 43233 (Jon Collins, Birmingham UK, Tecsun PL-660, telescopic whip, DX LISTENING DIGEST) What was the interference at 3-level?? (gh)

Also confirmed WOR 1888 first SW broadcast on new schedule, Tuesday July 25 at 2130 on WRMIs 9455 & 15770. At first 15770 was better, then faded, then roughly equal at fair. Also confirmed Tuesday July 25 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.20v-CUSB, good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11825, July 25 at 1257, WRMI run-up to 1300 opening Brother HyStairical, Bob Biermann with IDs and music, but can we call it an IS? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, July 25 at 1251, `The Power Hour` is still on this WWCR, but for the first hour only. At 1259, Brady announces the toll-free phone number for TPH, then switches right into the new gospel huxter which bumped TPH, Challenge Ministries International. TPH also on WRMI 9395, but 9455 is still // 9955 Eslovaquia in Spanish, until joining in at 1300 for VOA News in English relay, with mid-ID at 1302. The presumed still running WWCR // for TPH again from 1308, 13845, is a JBA carrier, as is the WRMI // 7780. By 1410 for the third hour, 9395, 9455 and 13845 are about equal at poor-fair level, and 7780 beamed out into the north Atlantic remains a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 9930 & 12105, July 25 at 1737 check, all three WTWW transmitters are OFF. 9475 might instead be on night frequency 5830 as has happened before while Ted dozes, but cannot detect it now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** COLOMBIA. 6010.103 varying slightly, July 24 at 0419, weak talk S9 but vs OK storm noise, and music splash from 6000 RHC, M&W alternating. Listening closely, I realize that the W is in English and the M in Spanish, so one is translating the other, presumably a sermon. Guess which is the originator? From La Voz de tu Conciencia. Meanwhile there is nothing circa 5910+ from the other HJDH, AlcaravÃn Radio, which I have not heard for some time beyond a sometimes JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11670 // more distorted over-modulated 11760, UT Monday July 24 at 0135, RHC opening `En Contacto` DX program. I`m catching its last airing this week, since the weekly automatic promos for it on the noticiasdx yg keep alleging that Manolo de la Rosa is hosting it, but I thought he had retired(?).

YL opens it without identifying herself, nor the `Profesor` who soon comes on from his home studio, but obviously Coro. He admits that his topic is based on something he already covered in English on DXers Unlimited. He calls her Marta, so indirectly we know them both. Ho hum, first topic of conversation back and forth is the 56th [? Or 58?] anniversary of RHC`s first major transmitter, from Switzerland, which went on air in late 1959 on 11760, a frequency which they have retained ever since. [No, I think that didn`t happen until 1961g, which would make 56 correct!]

Then she mentions a graphic about solar flux which Claudio GÃlaz forwarded from the GRA group. Claudio, who writes in very correct Spanish, never puts an accent on his first A, so I always pronounce him gah-LAHSS --- which is correct? Anyhow, it`s clear that Arnie, who thinks it`s fine that other DX programs should be jammed, is now the main voice of the Spanish as well as English RHC DX programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5965, July 24 at *1300, very poor signal starts with YL talking and Shiokaze music from JSR JAPAN. Ron Howard says it moved back here from 7215 on July 21, and North Korean jamming started the next day. Presumably English still on Thursdays only, but far too long after sunrise here a sesquihour earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PRIDNESTROVYE. 9900, July 24 at 0113 algo very poor talk. EiBi shows it must be TWR via ``Moldova``, 0045-0115 M-F in Hindi, to be followed by another 15 minutes in different languages, ``NE`` on Mondays, which probably means Nepali (other weekdays: Dzongka, Hindi, or Tibetan) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, July 24 at 0113:30, JBA carrier is already on from SLBC. I frequently check for this when around a radio at the right time, but it never gets any better than this. I strain to detect a mis-timesignal from 11 to 19 seconds past 0115 as used to be possible, but no luck yet, just too weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1887 monitoring: GERMANY Reception of HLR relays on 9485-CUSB, July 23: Hamburger Lokalradio
World of Radio#1886 [sic], 1030-1100 on 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2017/07/reception-of-hlr-relays-on-9485cusb_23.html
-- 73! (Ivo Ivanov, Sofia, Bulgaria, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)
Well I hope it was really latest 1887 (gh)

WOR 1887 also confirmed by gh, Sunday July 23 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.3v-CUSB, good! Also confirmed UT Monday July 24 at 0310 on Area 51 webcast about Ian McFarland, which is up to 7 minutes in, so started about 0303; also via WBCQ 5129.83v-AM still going at 0329 about Somalia, very poor in noise level. Also confirmed UT Monday July 24 from 0330 on WRMI 9955, fair. Next:

Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW, 15770 to NE
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455 to WNW
Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Monday July 24 at 1306, checking for `The Power Hour` on WWCR --- it`s gone! Replaced by some gospel huxter. This was and is a huge signal here, so TPH now must be sought on inferiors.

9395 // 9495, July 24 from 1305 adstring, via WRMIs and at 1308 TPH resumes with guest on the line, guess who, Jeff White! Apparently had been on the previous hour too. Now talking about a $ 3 SW radio in Nigeria for which he paid $ 10, not negotiating, but cheap! Host is named Daniel (what?). Taking lots of calls for this SW expert.

First one says he remembers Jeff White ``from the Glenn Hauser days``! Complains that 7780 and 9395 are not well received in Arizona, wants better frequency for there, and possibly nighttime repeat. Jeff says 7730 is beamed that way [285 degrees] but does not commit to it. Dan says they are looking into getting a repeat on WRMI. Caller says can listen to TPH via phone on 605-522-4092. At 1325 Dan says ``WWCR pulled the rug out from us``, meaning the cancellation of 7490.

WWCR pdf program schedule still dated July 1 and still shows TPH with Joyce Riley (! Will she continue to broadcast from the grave?) on both WWCR-2 7490 and WWCR-3 13845, M-F at 7-10 am Central and still misconverted to 13-16 UT.

So are they still on 13845? Can`t tell, not propagating yet, but indeed on new // 7780 from WRMI, but very poor. 9455, which often gets overlooked, and is still not shown with TPH on the WRMI grid, averages slightly better than 9395, but both are fading down in sunshine. 9455 interrupted at 1330 for canned WRMI ID, and adstring. At 1333, 13845 WWCR has temporarily faded in at S9+10, probably tnx sporadic E. Paranoid caller asks about feds having a black box at SW stations to take over their programming. Jeff says no, SW stations are exempt from EAS. At 1337, 13845 has faded down again. At 1339, Bob Biermann calls in from his north-Georgia pulpit, goes on for some time. At 1345 all frequencies are poor here, and I listen to KOSU/NPR rest of the hour.

At 1400, 9395 and best 9455 are cribbing VOA News. I should think TPH types would be horrified by government news; will it last? 7780 is a JBA carrier, 13845 inaudible; and 7490 is calling for hymn #824 to be sung. Always a 3-minute adstring at 5 past the hour, 1405-1408 until TPH resumes, Jeff still guest. At 1409 YL gives sked as 7-10 am [CDT] on 7780, 9395; 7-8 am on another(?), 7-10 am on 13845. I`m about to give up at 1411 when all are weak, but at 1412 find 7780 is suddenly in at good level. Did WRMI switch from a NE to NW antenna? Now shows on grid as TPH, 1200-1500*, still #1 at 44 degrees toward Europe. 6m Es map shows I am likely getting more temporary sporadic-E enhancement from FL. Next a caller with bad echo --- turn your radio down! He is not instructed. He recommends pre-selectors and DSP to improve reception. At 1420.5 another 4-minute ad break introduced. 1430.0 again interrupted for WRMI ID and ads. And so it goes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 5830, July 24 at 0121, WTWW-1 is absent from both possible frequencies. All other QRGs empty too: 5085, 9930, 12105.

5830 July 24 at 0416 check, now WTWW-1 is on here, as usual suptorted but S9+30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3185, July 24 at 0121, WWRB is dead air instead of Brother Stair --- quite an improvement. Means day frequency 9370 is already off. But WWRB`s only other frequency, 5050 is also off, if it had been on before 0100 this UT Monday? It`s other gospel huxters, UT Sun-Mon-Tue only starting circa 0000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1460, July 24 at 0132 UT, YL speaking calmly in Asian language really stands out --- not Mandarin, but seems tonal, maybe Cantonese, Vietnamese, Cambodian or even Myanmarianese? At the moment atop some CCI in Spanish, maybe still KZUE in OK. Loops about 170/350 degrees on the DX-398, so I bet it is something from the multi-ethnic Houston market. Also makes fast SAH circa 10 Hz with algo. At 0140 UT, language disappears, replaced by Home Depot, Lowe`s ads in English, then ``Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN-Radio at Wrigley Field`` (likely KXPN Kearney NE, 5000/56 watts U1).

Later checking NRC AM Log, the obvious answer: KBRZ, Missouri City TX, 5000/125 U1, but applied for 10000/125 U5. FCC AM Query now does not show any such app. However, KBRZ FCC sunset in July is 0130 UT, so they were a bit late dropping power; August: 0100* UT.

Physical address in Houston, ETHnic format, ``International Language Radio``, per NRC. Radio-locator instead calls it ``Sangeet Radio``,
http://www.sangeetradio.com/
which pretends 95.1 FM is its only frequency, but which is really just a measly translator, K236AR per NRC Log. A.k.a. on website ``No. 1 Desi Hit Music Station``.

Program sked for ``Weekend`` (so Sat & Sun are identical?) shows 6-9 pm [CDT = UT -5] `Zeeshan ON AIR` with the ``RJ``, Zeeshan Ishaq. She(?) is not among the RJs (which means?) in the ``Profiles`` photo gallery. We still don`t know what language this involves, no doubt obvious to the ethnix. ``About Us`` at
http://www.sangeetradio.com/?page_id=10
still does not enlighten us, but says KBRZ caters to all South Asians. So who is Zeeshan Ishaq? Searching on that seemingly unique name gets lots of hits, at least top-10 at linkedin. Adding KBRZ to search gets to this one:

http://zeeshanonair.com/schedule/
indicating it`s a guy who plays Bollywood music, far from what I was hearing. Also linx to his FB
https://www.facebook.com/Zeeshan-On-Air-951-FM-1460-AM-626258387450241/
where it`s clear he is a Pakistani Moslem, backing Azad Kashmir against Indian occupation. So maybe he had this woman guest talking on his show when I heard it, in Punjabi? Urdu? But those are not tonal, I think.

I don`t find any other ETH stations near here that I might have been hearing; altho there are plenty of SS on 1460 around the country, KBRZ is in fact the only ETH of the 69 North American stations on 1460 in the NRC AM Log 2016-2017. It seems I had not logged KBRZ since August and February 2012, also a bit iffy. Missouri City is on the SW corner of Houston beyond Loop 8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, July 23 at 1200, must be NBC, best signal here in a long time, S9 fading to S6 with rock song; 1201 YL & OM converse for a while, not like news, unseems Indonesian, but not English either, so Pidgin. 1206 song, 1210 YL announcement maybe English; 1216 rock with heavy beat, 1224 a familiar tune at last.

Initially it`s the SSOB; ignoring Korean outliers on 2850 & 3480, virtually the OSOB except for JBA carrier on 3260, Madang. 3325 rates SINPO 25432. It`s diminishing by 1224, and at 1230, S7 to S5; 1252 recheck, only a JBA carrier is left on 3325.

Never any sign of RRI Palangkaraya co-channel, altho Atsunori Ishida says it has been active every day thru July 22 until 1700v*. RRI is much further from here and always likely to be weaker if at all. Both nominally 10 kW per WRTH. RRI should switch to a nearby clear frequency like 3355 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11815.033, July 23 at 0529, poor signal with music, RÃdio Brasil Central, but really stands out with hardly anything else propagating on 25m. I look for other ZYs and find only 11934.938 also with music, RÃdio Evangelizar. On 31m, only 9819, 9675, 9665, 9630, not measured precisely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 650, July 23 at 1120, Mexican music from XETNT, Los Mochis, Sinaloa, the major lowband signal holding up as Enid sunrise 1131 is nigh. 1128 full ID as Radio 65, Radio Viva, noticias Altavoz.com, and into choral NA at this odd time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 740, Sunday July 23 at 1140 UT, distracted from SRS DXing by an interview on KRMG rather than far-right talkshows; with conductor of an orchestra about their upcoming 10-concert 2017-2018 season, seems like it`s quite creative. Some time references imply however this was recorded circa last February. I figure it`s the Tulsa Symphony --- but no, wrapping up at 1156 UT with AndrÃs Franco, conductor of the Signature Symphony, of which I had never heard, http://www.signaturesymphony.org
on the program `Oklahoma Perspective`. Season theme is ``"From the Heartland: Tulsa Music Connections" as explained:
http://signaturesymphony.org/signature-symphony-at-tcc-announces-2017-2018-season/
Quite affordable too, individual tickets $ 12, season $ 60. Makes me wish I were much closer to Tulsa.

The S.S. is part of Tulsa Community College. This motto appears twice on website: ``Cras justo odio, dapibus ac facilisis in, egestas eget quam.`` It looks like Latin, but maybe it`s nonsense? Google can`t translate it all. In segments, comes up with ``just hate tomorrow, protein and antioxidants in poverty and need`` --- huhhh???

Tulsa Symphony, OTOH, emphasizes that it`s ``professional``, now in its twelfth season following the demise of the Tulsa Philharmonic.
https://tulsasymphony.org/
It`s also broadcast on KWTU 88.7, the only one pending on current schedule: ``September 10, 4-6 pm [CDT Sunday = 21-23 UT], Classics Series: The Firebird, Symphony No.90 (Haydn), Hary Janos Suite (Kodaly), The Firebird Suite (Stravinsky)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, July 23 at 1206, SIBC must be off already, no signal in quick check amid 3325 Bougainville monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sunday July 23 at 1400, REE is still missing for the second day from its North American frequency, while 17715, 230 degrees to South America, is poorly audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, July 23 at 1200, must be NBC, best signal here in a long time, S9 fading to S6 with rock song; 1201 YL & OM converse for a while, not like news, unseems Indonesian, but not English either, so Pidgin. 1206 song, 1210 YL announcement maybe English; 1216 rock with heavy beat, 1224 a familiar tune at last.

Initially it`s the SSOB; ignoring Korean outliers on 2850 & 3480, virtually the OSOB except for JBA carrier on 3260, Madang. 3325 rates SINPO 25432. It`s diminishing by 1224, and at 1230, S7 to S5; 1252 recheck, only a JBA carrier is left on 3325.

Never any sign of RRI Palangkaraya co-channel, altho Atsunori Ishida says it has been active every day thru July 22 until 1700v*. RRI is much further from here and always likely to be weaker if at all. Both nominally 10 kW per WRTH. RRI should switch to a nearby clear frequency like 3355 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11815.033, July 23 at 0529, poor signal with music, RÃdio Brasil Central, but really stands out with hardly anything else propagating on 25m. I look for other ZYs and find only 11934.938 also with music, RÃdio Evangelizar. On 31m, only 9819, 9675, 9665, 9630, not measured precisely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 650, July 23 at 1120, Mexican music from XETNT, Los Mochis, Sinaloa, the major lowband signal holding up as Enid sunrise 1131 is nigh. 1128 full ID as Radio 65, Radio Viva, noticias Altavoz.com, and into choral NA at this odd time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 740, Sunday July 23 at 1140 UT, distracted from SRS DXing by an interview on KRMG rather than far-right talkshows; with conductor of an orchestra about their upcoming 10-concert 2017-2018 season, seems like it`s quite creative. Some time references imply however this was recorded circa last February. I figure it`s the Tulsa Symphony --- but no, wrapping up at 1156 UT with AndrÃs Franco, conductor of the Signature Symphony, of which I had never heard, http://www.signaturesymphony.org
on the program `Oklahoma Perspective`. Season theme is ``"From the Heartland: Tulsa Music Connections" as explained:
http://signaturesymphony.org/signature-symphony-at-tcc-announces-2017-2018-season/
Quite affordable too, individual tickets $ 12, season $ 60. Makes me wish I were much closer to Tulsa.

The S.S. is part of Tulsa Community College. This motto appears twice on website: ``Cras justo odio, dapibus ac facilisis in, egestas eget quam.`` It looks like Latin, but maybe it`s nonsense? Google can`t translate it all. In segments, comes up with ``just hate tomorrow, protein and antioxidants in poverty and need`` --- huhhh???

Tulsa Symphony, OTOH, emphasizes that it`s ``professional``, now in its twelfth season following the demise of the Tulsa Philharmonic.

It`s also broadcast on KWTU 88.7, the only one pending on current schedule: ``September 10, 4-6 pm [CDT Sunday = 21-23 UT], Classics Series: The Firebird, Symphony No.90 (Haydn), Hary Janos Suite (Kodaly), The Firebird Suite (Stravinsky)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, July 23 at 1206, SIBC must be off already, no signal in quick check amid 3325 Bougainville monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sunday July 23 at 1400, REE is still missing for the second day from its North American frequency, while 17715, 230 degrees to South America, is poorly audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
