** EGYPT. 9900.175 & 9895v, May 25 at 2059, 2120 and 2209 chex, no
signals at all from R. Cairo unlike yesterday. Richard Langley, NB,
to the WOR iog provides 100% confirmation of the precise frequency I
logged:

``I started listening to Radio Cairo on nominal 9895 kHz yesterday
(24 May) around 2040 UT using a Field BT portable with just its whip
antenna indoors. This is just before Glenn's report of yesterday. The
signal was good but heavily distorted as usual. It was difficult to
tell that accented French was being spoken. Music seemed slightly
less distorted. There was also a persistent whine (600 Hz). Checked
using the U. Twente SDR receiver where the signal was stronger but
equally distorted and the AMSync frequency was 9895.175 kHz. Audio
(except whine) was cut between about 2100:05 and 2108:47 UT and then
returned. Time pips (quite clear) at 2115 and then start of English
program but hard to tell at times it was English. The transmitter
stayed on this frequency until about 20:31 UTC [sic, must mean 2131]
when it switched within some seconds to 9900.175 kHz. Should have
been on this frequency since the start of the English program, I
believe. English program continued to about 2245. Transmitter stayed
on without audio (except whine) until about 2323! -- Richard
Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550.02v, May 25 at 2117, R. Kuwait JBA carrier is the
OSOB, in its foolish doomed Arabic transmission for C&W NAm.
Previously was on the minus side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.940, May 25 at 0550, VON is back after a few days
away, so I remeasure, about where it always parx, and on earlier than
usual with a prélude of African choral music at S9/+10 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13690.050, May 25 at 1338, JBA carrier,
confronting splash from 13700 Cuba; off at 1358. Scheduled is only
VOA Chinese via SAIPAN, this hour only. Likely also jammed, but even
before the typhoon, this site was known for offfrequenciness (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 89.1, K206CA, Oasis translator in Enid is back on not
only carrier but modulation, May 25 circa 2030; the other absentees
in last report remain so (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1983 monitoring: via UTwente SDR,
confirmed Saturday May 25 from 1431 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 9485-
CUSB, so propagating, sporadic E short-skip boost? But with horrific
splash from Romania 9490. Still has not flipped to LSB as I proposed,
which would have helped somewhat. HLR is dedicated to staying on 6190
& 7265 no matter what, since those are legacy W German regional
frequencies, SFB and SWF, but that does not apply to 9485, so they
could move completely, e.g. 9480. Was also audible at first check
1415 during MN+. Alan Gale, England, reports on his direct reception:

``Hi Glenn, I can confirm that World of Radio was on 9485 kHz on HLR
today, though thanks to the splatter from the station on 9490 it was
only possible to hear the odd word now and then. It was definitely
you though, and I did hear your 'Glenn Hauser concluding' message at
1459 UT when the other station went quiet. As you said, it would
definitely help if they were on the lower sideband, but at least the
IRRS broadcast [Monday 1815v] on 7290 kHz is very strong here at the
moment so I will continue to listen to that one instead. Alan``

WOR 1983 also confirmed Saturday May 25 at 2100 on WRMI 9955 after ID
& IS loop, but joining WOR 5.5 words late, upcut ``rld of Radio 1983
---``. I keep half an ear on it for the rest, hoping it stay on
unlike Wednesday. No, cuts off the air at 2111*, back on at 2119 or
maybe a minute earlier. Meanwhile 9395 kept going, and there were no
storms in Florida at this time. Next:

** U S A. 7505v, May 25 at 0554, NO signal at all from the very
undependable WRNO. Are the Chinese and other ministries paying for
lost airtime? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, May 25 at 2103, WTWW is AWOL, and also absent from
all other possible frequencies: 5085, 5830, 9930, 15810, even 12105.
Not a storm in TN at this time, and neighbor WWCR remains nominal on
15825, 13845, 9350. 5085 is on at 2311, in time for `Theatre Organ in
the Ozarx` [non?] nominal 2330- (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 13700, May 25 at 2109, gospel huxter in English, rather
weak and not domestic? VP at tune in, then surges S7 to max S9. About
Absalom vs Amnon who raped his sister, whew! At first sounds a bit
like a younger DGS, but no, and not // 13845 PMS. HFCC shows it`s
really WHRI on a NF since May 5, 2000-2200, 250 kW at 47 degrees, on
Day 1=Sunday only, but this is Saturday! So also or instead of on
Sunday? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, May 25 at 0556, mystery open carrier at S7-S3;
also May 25 at 2105 JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 2328 UT May 25

Hauser
** ALGERIA [non]. 6050, May 24 at 0435, fair ME songs and then Arabic
announcement, i.e. TDA via FRANCE as scheduled this hour only. But
certainly not the Qur`an service as listed.

HCJB is quite weak here until 0230, but extends two nights a week to
0500 when there will be a collision --- or rather Issoudun will wipe
out Pico Pichincha. HFCC says days 6 & 7 which mean Friday and
Saturday, but no sign of it now, so really UT Saturday and Sunday?
WRTH shows no such extension beyond 0230/0235 anynight, degraded to
only 1 kW. Nor does Aoki/NDXC, reminding us that Tibet is also on
6050 thruout, but it`s daytime there. EiBi does show HCJB at 0233-
0500 Fri & Sat only, in Spanish, not Kichwa. Need to check whether
HCJBe there just before 0400 on which nights. UT Saturday May 25 on
6050 I do have a JBA carrier 0232-0237+; kept thinking it cut off,
but merely fading to nothing and back up. Still there at 0328 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.97, May 24 at 1710-1815, tnx to tip from Dan
Robinson to the WOR iogroup, LRA36 on the air Friday and heard via
Pardinho SP SDR in Brasil, which seems to be the best one for this.
The entire hour+ was music, no IDs or any announcements: a tragic
loss of opportunity to diffuse Antarctic culture, politix, native
music, history, scientific achievements, etc. Also could discourage
QSL seeking with no significant program content to report. Bruce
Churchill also recommends the much further SDR in Iceland, a total-
water path like SP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. 5045-USB, May 24 at 0954 I happen to awaken so a rare
chance to check for WORLD OF RADIO on Unique Radio, now scheduled at
both 0930 & 1000 Fridays. Not surprisingly I get no trace of the low
-power signal here; but I do have a JBA carrier on 5055 from presumed
4KZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9570, May 24 at 1332, CRI relay S9 but just barely
modulated; much softer than 9640 RHC. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ECUADOR. See ALGERIA [non]

** EGYPT. 9900.175V, (meaning varying slightly, audible in real time)
May 24 at 2147, JBA talk by YL, 2153 ME music, 2201 talk; S5-S7 on
inside longwire due to storm; quick attach of outside LW boosts to
S8-S9 but still far too much storm noise. Surely the R. Cairo English
broadcast scheduled on 9900 at 2115-2245 but has been inactive as x-
ed in Aoki. HFCC shows 125 kW at 325 degrees from Abis to W Europe;
and the closest thing to a North American service by extension. I
don`t recall any previous reports of it so far off-frequency but
certainly a Cairo capability (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1 WBFM, May 24 circa 2030 UT and earlier, later chex,
KAMG-LP Enid in open carrier only. That was quick: As in previous
report, I had just found it reactivated after 21 months on May 22 as
``Radio Vivir``.

Suspect another cynical example of going on the air *only* to
preserve a license, but not interested enough to keep broadcasting,
yet preventing anyone else from getting the frequency. At FCC FM
Query, I do find that the original KAMG-LP was granted a license to
cover on February 27, 2007. and clicking on the pdf Authorization,
``This license expires 3:00 a.m. local time, June 01, 2013``. Another
six years would be a week from now! So at least the licensee is
paying attention to the calendar.

While I am at it, a quick check of other area FM stations with dead
air:

88.3, K202BY, Family Radio translator has been open carrier for many
many months, meanwhile getting an STA to be *off* the air, which is
not the same thing as on the air transmitting nothing! Perhaps they
can`t tell the difference back at KEBR-FM HQ in California?

89.1, K206CA, Oasis Network translator of KNYD(FM); often dead air
and this time has been for a few days at least.

90.3, KHEV Fairview, relay of KHYM seems on but dead air now. Maybe
caused by recent/current storms. With 490 watts, gets into west side
of Enid best.

101.5, KOCD Okeene, satellite of KWDW-LP 93.9 OKC is still out of air
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENINIG DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Friday May 24 at 2202, REE`s Justin Coe introducing a
4-movement serious music piece, sounded like ``In Memory of Tonal
Music`` by Strauss, but that does not compute. Podcast archive is
running a week behind, but per WOR Hitlist, should eventually show
at:
http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/audios/emision-en-ingles/
S9+10 but vs heavy storm noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1983 monitoring: [see also
AUSTRALIA]. Confirmed first NAm SWBC, Friday May 24 at 2200 on WRMI
9955, poor in storm noise but I listen to the whole thing until 2229
to be sure it`s intact with no transmitter failures.

Also confirmed UT Saturday May 25 starting at 0130 on WRMI 7780, fair
S9/+10 but still too much storm noise. Followed familiar bit of World
Music fill at 0129 and Ian McFarland ID at 0129.5, no WOR upcut.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.16v, UT Sat May 25 at 0000, WBCQ William Tell Overture
introducing `AAAWWW`; heavy storm noise so I copy only bits, not
necessarily correctly. 9330+ is a bit better for a while: crazy,
crazy country; the $ 15 special deal on 5130 is over; could get $ 200
an hour. Recheck 0048 with a caller discussing Iran; now down to
7490.14v. Thales has mailed out something today. Water and big tubes
don`t mix. That`s why there have been no tests the past week.
Everything is under warranty. Prayer, etc., runs over a bit to end of
AAAWWW at 0103. John Carver`s computer was out last week, but fills
in details this week:

``Tonight's show started a few seconds early on 7490 after a bit of
fill music. Allan and Angela in the studio. Tom is there also working
on the computers. Allan seems to be in a better mood this evening.
Allan begins with a strange musing on Memorial Day and wonders why we
need war and memorial days anymore. This quickly morphs into a one
sided dialog with god. Allan then stated that Angela had gotten a
Maine driver's license and is working on her US citizenship.

Said that there had been some setbacks with the transmitter for the
superstation and they were waiting on parts and a crew from the
transmitter manufacturer to install them. They had a water leak in
the water cooling system and the PA tube and its socket were damaged.
Tom mentioned that it would take four men to move the tube. Allan
said he wasn't impressed with the design of the new transmitter.

Phone call at 0045 from a woman with a reception report and it turned
out she had recently been in Iran so that was discussed for awhile.
Reading of emails began at 0056. Closing prayer at at 0100. Show was
off the air at 0103. Some dead air for a few seconds and then some
music. 7490 was off the air at 0107. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265V, UT Fri May 24 at 0400 tune-in to wobbly WINB playing
the Star Spangled Banner at S9+10/20, as if signing off; not quite:
then starts playing another version of SSB but talking over the first
part of it with sign-off message in anthem desecration. Plays to end
but at 0402: Dan Curtis wishes good day and wants to save me. ``Don`t
you want to go? I`m goin` to heaven ---`` and *then* cuts off the
air. Bye!! Seemed late hour for WINB, had been closing earlier, but
they are very flexible with schedule span depending on airtime sales.
Website shows now: daily except UT Sunday from 0300 is `Worship At
Home`, which we now know must be a full hour long. I think that`s
also on WRMI. Final WINB show UT Sunday starts at 0230, so probably
finishes an hour earlier at 0300. Annoyingly, WINB never publishes
its sign-off times, let alone true duration of programs. As for Dan
Curtis, he is not on the list at
http://winb.com/bypgmsch.htm
but he did not give any other title for his minis-try. Poor Dan! Or
was it Don. Off to heaven before he can even get started (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.971, May 23 at 1324, JJBBA carrier from LRA36 on
another active Thursday. All I am likely to get here, but one may
hear some programming via closer remotes such as Brasil (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1983, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 13870, May 23 at 1329, CNR1 jammer S8-S4 vs RTTY, // CNR1
jammer on 11785. At 1336 searched 10.9-14.0 MHz for more of them, but
none found; rather three just below 15.0:

14920, May 23 at 1336, CNR1 jammer strongest, // 11785 and also 9680
CNR1 jammers; 14900 and 14980, cannot make // so maybe really Sound
of Hope. Or // but not synchronized. Aoki shows 13870, 14920 and
14900 as jammed SOH from Miaoli, Taiwan; 14900 as SOH relaying Radio
Free Asia via Pingtung, Taiwan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. Correxion: exact frequency on May 13 was 13739.239 (like
other logs of it), not 13739.289, typo; fixed:

13739.239, May 13 at 1347, RHC S9+10 and auto-knocked off-frequency
again today. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12200, May 23 at 0615, RHC English at S6-S7, 2 x // 6100:
MUF holding up; no harmonics from other 6 MHz channels, but two of
them are OFF: 6000 and 6060, while 6165 is on but VP; also fighting
high local noise level of S9 on 49m band. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1983, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, May 23 at 1336, RHC Spanish is S7-S5 on 2 x 6000
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, May 23 at 2153, RHC dead air at S9+10 while weaker
11850 successfully Spanishes. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550-, May 22 at 2133, MOI is once again a JBA carrier
slightly on the low side, yet achieving OSOB status. Not audible 24
hours later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, May 22 at 2136, RNZI audible S2-S3 with
something about the Andes. Now getting into deep-winter conditions
onto lower frequencies, ex-13840. Sked today shows: 2059-2258 11725,
then from 2259 13840, which usually improves during the evening here,
now running until 0459 for an hour on 9700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 1983, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, May 23 at 0631 check, VON still absent (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1983, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1 WBFM, May 22 at 1830 UT on caradio, Spanish gospel
huxter, so KAMG-LP Enid is back on the air after 21 months! There
goes what would have been a prime frequency for the sporadic E DX
season. Altho a strong opening could override this.

Continuous preaching with praise music background, mentions Coahuila
several times, but phone 620-626-8282 for prayer petitions.

That would be KZQD-FM 105.1 in Liberal Kansas (not heard here, OK
station blox) which radio-locator.com claims is Radio Liberdad [sic],
in Spanish but not specifying gospel huxterism. WTFDA DB however says
it is Spanish religious, Radio Libertad. So the source of KAMG-LP?
But cannot be picking it up directly like a translator.

By 1900 UT in music only; 1902 ID in English as KAMG-LP, 92.1, Enid;
and in Spanish as ``Radio Vivir, 24 horas al aire``.

Yes Vivir, the infinitive, ``to live``, not Viva or Vida, as
confirmed by close listening May 23 at 0602 after praise music from
0557 UT tune-in; IDs a minute or two past top-of-hour, clock running
slow? Then plugs and seems to intro same Liberal, Kansas predicator
as 11 hours ago, but back to more praise songs.

WTFDA FM database does have it currently as 68 watts H and V of
silence from a horizontal-only height of 37 meters

No mention of Maranatha which it was previously affiliated with as
satellator:
http://www.maranatharadio.com/stations
now forwards to https://www.raybentley.com/
as Maranatha Radio with podcasts in English; stations include WRNO
7505 but no OK FM, and no times for any.

FCC and Radio-locator.com claim still owned by Maranatha Radio Corp.
Far from its roots as a real local station, but FCC approved sale.

Previous KAMG-LP info as in DXLD:
OFF as of 1/31/19, and before that as of 2/16/18
Last logged ON, but distorted as of 8/25/17 in DXLD 17-35
It was back after dead air for weeks, as of 8/20/17, in DXLD 17-34

Follow-up about ex-DXer John Broomall involvement, DXLD 17-30
John Broomall involvement, Community Christian Broadcasters,
discussion of FCC info listing address as 627 E Carrier Road, which I
visited without finding it, only residences, in DXLD 17-27 -- which
refers to earlier discussion in DXLD 13-41, q.v.

The original transmitter site I visited when first on the air is a
couple miles further west on the other side of US 81/60/64 (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Thu May 23 at 2157, REE music fill of that majestic

timesignal and `La Linterna Magica` about the cinema; podcast archive:
http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/audios/la-linterna-magica/

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1982 monitoring: a problem with
both stations Wednesday May 22 at 2100: WRMI-10 is still having big
problems on 9955: no signal before or after 2100, but I leave a
receiver on 9954-USB to notify me if it come on: which it does at
*2116, S8-S9 JIP WOR --- but cuts off again at 2124*. By 2130 it`s
back on for Wavescan.

WBCQ 7490.17v: WOR poorly audible at 2104 --- but it`s the previous
week`s 1981! With Ron`s Bhutan logs. 2129 music fill, and then, and
then, at 2130 --- WOR 1981 repeated! starting with QSL for
Antarctica. You may recall that last week, WBCQ did this: 2100
Goddess Irena, 2130 WOR 1981, swapping their previous times. If two
WORs are to play in a row, please make it the penultimate, and then
the ultimate. But who knows what may happen next week.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, May 23 at 1318, WRMI-10 is off again. Must be having
serious problems, supposed to last until 1400; also came on for only
8 minutes of WORLD OF RADIO yesterday. 9395 on and easily audible as
usual. 9955 was not always on the #10 transmitter, as shown on the
current skedgrid. Perhaps they can change to another, but not all
transmitters can be connected to any of the antennas, and this one is
supposed to stay at 160 degrees. #4 is currently off completely,
maybe out of order too? It had been on 9455 at 160 degrees. Several
other transmitters are much less than full-time and might be
available (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, May 23 at 0620, WWCR dead air at S9+10; 5935 with PMS
is OK, and 3215 with Brother Scare, but 4840 is also dead air (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, May 23 at 1335, WEWN Spanish is distorted and
splattering (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, May 23 at 1406, KVOH unusually propagating S9
already this early shortly after sign-on; but I don`t find any
significant sporadic-E activity on 6m or 10m maps --- so the Es MUF
could be as low as 18 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13152, May 23 at 1333, beeps = carrier cutting on and
off, at slightly uneven rate of about 24x per minute (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17590, May 23 at 1409, something JBA, the OSOB except
for 17775 KVOH. HFCC only lists Saudi Arabia in English at 1200-1500!
But *any* English from there is surely imaginary. Possibly a special
from Vatican Radio, which EiBi and Aoki show using 17590 at other
times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** ASCENSION. 7415, May 22 at 0614, JBA talk; HFCC shows it`s ENC in
Kau this hour only, but what is it, really? Aoki/NDXC shows R.
Ndarason International in Kan. WRTH 2019 page 511 shows Kanuri and
also Kanembu language as the only target broadcast for CHAD (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 15140, May 21 at 1432, RHC missing again today
while still on 15230 but VP. And no OMAN either. Need to check before
1400* to try to confirm whether it`s 2 x 7570 SMTV on WRMI. Which I
do, May 22 at 1355, but RHC is back on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, May 21 at 1437, CRI Plus English relay is distorted
and overmodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060 & 6000 & 5040, May 22 at 0610, all these RHC English
frequencies are off, while only 5040 is supposed to be; leaving only
6165, S9/+10 undermodulated; and 6100 S9+20/30
overmodulated/distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 5980, May 22 at 0158, TV Martí sound vs jamming, and
ROMANIA [q.v.] has just closed; not // 6030 Radio Martí, and nothing
on 6010, contrary to a report 23.5 hours earlier to the WOR iog:

``Noted here in NB this evening (21 May UT) at 0230 UT:
5980 kHz - TV Martí audio
6010 kHz - TV Martí audio
7335 kHz - Radio Martí
7365 kHz - Radio Martí
(nothing on 6030 kHz) -- Richard Langley``

He agrees back to normal tonight; but a sign of things to come? TVM
and jamming on 6010 will wipe out any chance for Brasil, or inactive
Colombia, Mexico, let alone the Cuban leapfrog before 0100 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15410, May 22 at 1430, S9-S5 in Chinese and a bit
of English. Aoki/NDXC shows it`s CRI Chinese this hour only from
Kashi-Saiba site, a.k.a. Kashgar (near the Uighur concentration
camps. Such does not disqualify from participating in HFCC!)
Specifically 500 kW at 300 degrees toward Europe, one of countless
transmissions thus, and often carrying on to central N America when
little else does; likewise routine CRI English on 15590 via Urumqi
(NOT ``Urumqui``) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17549.98, May 21 at 2119, JBA talk, the OSOB after KVOH
closed VG 17775 circa 2100. Got to be R. Kuwait`s very optimistic
central/western-USA target service in Arabic, scheduled all year at
2000-2400, 250 kW at 350 degrees, but just starting to propagate now
a month from Solstice with maximum, but only partial insolation on
the near-polar path. Note local time at takeoff ranges from 23 to 03;
who else would ever consider broadcasting on 16m at such hours, let
alone to the other worldside? I had just checked WWV at 2118 to hear
the K index as zero, which helped (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, May 22 at 0612, no signal from VON; believe it has
also been absent a few nights now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 27185.217-AM, May 21 at 2317, country ballads, lo-fi,
speaker-to-mike? Steady S9+10 and the OSOB with no skip, local Enid
CBer, would-be broadcaster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7420, May 22 at 0156*, RRI cutoff shortly after
tunein a bit early during music, as I am checking // to 5980 with JBA
music mixed with Cuban jamming and TV Martí sound; but it had been
producing a medium SAH which is gone as soon as I get back to 5980
whence RRI has also vanished (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Tue May 21 at 2055, WRMI is on with IS & ID loop, but
2116 recheck is OFF. #10 transmitter continues suffering from
irregularity. Let`s hope it`s on and stays on for WORLD OF RADIO 24
hours later on Wednesday. If not, check whether WBCQ 7490+ again run
WOR at 2130 instead of 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Wed May 22 at 0604, WWCR continues to run this
transmitter with nothing on it, OC/DA at S9+20; while 5935 DGS is
fadier, S9+10/20. Both 4840 & 3215 are now BSing (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, May 21 at 0608, mystery open carrier still, S1-
S3. No one else reports it, and might suspect local to here but it
does exhibit propagational fading and lots of variation in strength
from one log to the next. Who cares? The thing is, it might develop
into something significant or interesting if we keep after it.

9200, May 21 at 1438, JBA carrier at S6-S3 also audible this time.
Now could be CNR1 jammer/Sound of Hope, which Aoki spans 2151-1530,
but propagationally surely not what I am getting in the nightmiddle
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
