** CUBA. 6000, July 16 at 1314, RHC is still on in undermodulated Spanish, but not 6100, both nominally 1300*. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-USB, July 16 at 0131, S9+5 pirate music, OSOB; 0141, 0146, 0150, 0152, quick synthyl announcements, ID? I never catch it clearly, partly because I am simulscanning on another receiver. These say it was Mix Radio or Mix Radio International, including SSTV:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,44357.0.html

My nearest streetlite ignites at 0151 UT causing a wideband RF burst before it`s fully illuminated. Cloudy sky at sunset, so otherwise it would have been a few minutes later. Current SS/SR times at Enid are: 0149 & 1125 UT; per gaisma.com shifting less than one minute earlier/later per noctem/diem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, July 16 circa 1329 UT, surprised to hear KOSU instead of Family Radio translator for Enid, K202BY; axually it`s KOSR, the low-power KOSU 91.7 OKC relay back at nominal HQ Stillwater; not clear if K202BY off, or area tropo allowing it to overcome, but by 1400, it`s all K202BY.

Some Tulsa market TV stations are also in circa 1400 UT July 16, notably RF 20, KQCW-DT ``19`` Muskogee plugging parent station KOTV ``6``. No subchannels here, just 19-1 on CW net. It won`t have to repack, but KOTV RF 45 will go to RF 26, 19 and 30! Per rabbitears.info for Market 63: 19 and 30 will be 1 kW fill-ins, south and north of Tulsa respectively, while RF 26 will be the main channel for KOTV. All also carry KQCW-SD as 6-2 and News on Six as 6-3 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1938 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday July 16 from 0130.5 on WRMI 7780 S9-S7, and 5850 S9+45! I was expecting to hear an endsliver of `Rockphesy`, still on sked until 0130, but instead at 0129, there was BS on 5850 (// 7730), fortunately cutting to two canned IDs in time for WOR a semiminute past the semihour. 7780 had some music, fill?

Also confirmed UT Monday July 16 from 0300 on Area 51 webcast, and at 0327 check on WBCQ 5129.82v, poor. Also UT Monday July 16 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, good S9/+10, but as soon as WOR starts I hear some lite pulse jamming: tnx a lot, Arnie! Also confirmed after 0400 the immediate repeat on unjammed WRMI webcast only. Next:

Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1939?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1939?]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, July 16 at 0148, WTWW-1 is still on SFAW day frequency at S9+45; while last night at 0026 it was already on night frequency 5830.

15809.9, July 16 at 0154, WTWW-3 is on but JBA S1 with rock, ``Suzy Q``, // 5085 at S9+50. Yet it`s the 19m OSOB, and consequently the SSOB (for anyone still wondering: Only, and Strongest, Station On Band) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, July 16 at 1335 UT, KLEY Wellington KS with classic rock, normal. For some weeks now I have not caught it breaking up as it had been doing since February into June (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9450-USB, July 16 at 0605, 2-way at VP level INTRUDING, expressing ``over`` as ``cambio``, but rest of conversation unseems Spanish or even Portuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1548 UT July 16

** ANGUILLA. 11775, July 15 at 1242 no signal from CB/TUN/PMS/DGS even tho it`s Sunday morning --- but it is on by 1303, now // 13845 WWCR. Standard behavior has been to continue thru Sunday night/Monday morning on 6090, Monday day on 11775, after 2200 on 6090, but then gone again until next Sunday morning. Rick Barton, AZ, heard it turn off abruptly at 0305* UT Tuesday June 26. The transmitter is obviously working fine, but they no longer choose to run it 24/7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 11985, July 15 at 1244, Firedragon music jamming mixing with Chinese talk, i.e. RTI as scheduled this hour only. See also TAIWAN [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, July 14 at 0530, this RHC English frequency is off; 6000 undermodulated; 6100 good; 6165 best modulation and signal, slightly better than the fifth of The Cuban Five, 5040. At 0553 I rate 6000 as JBM = just barely modulated. The relative quality of these, and which may be missing, vary greatly from one night to the next. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, July 15 at 1806, MWV is back with good signal during English hour of African Pathways Radio, previews, first to ``Path to a happy home`` about family relations, domestic support should be reciprocal (duh!). Quite a while since this has been easily heard from the other worldside (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-AM, July 15 at 0024, rock music, S5 vs static crashes to S9, the OSOB with none in the 6.9s. Still going past 0046.
Many logs here say it`s a relay of X-FM, originally unID, between 2305 July 14 and 0133 July 15:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,44308.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, July 15 at 0127, S9+20 rap with swearing, then a novelty comedy song. Suspected Clever Name Radio, and so it is:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,44313.0.html
between *0058 and 0142* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11904.89, July 15 at *0029:36, JBA carrier on from SLBC, S0.5-S1, surprisingly off-frequency. 0030:28 imagination-level timesignal? Cuts off and on air, again from *0031:11 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN. 11440- & 11500-, July 14 at 1240, VP carriers, slightly on low side, maybe some Chinese. Hallmarx of Sound of Hope, and matching nicely with Aoki/NDXC showing them on 11439.956 and 11499.933. And evidently without jamming.

[non] 15740, July 15 at 0047, S1 JBA talk, in Chinese? Except for CRI/Cuba 15120, it`s the OSOB. Aoki shows only Sound of Hope on 15740.232, but *jammed and I am probably hearing the latter, CNR1, since the signal was not noticeably off-frequency. See also CHINA [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 7345, July 14 at 0458, Bow Bells from BBCWS, 0500 news. I thought this would be Ascension, but that`s not until 0600. The 05-06 hour is 170 degrees from Woofferton. Much weaker than, and with some splat de, neighbor 7335 MartÃ.

I`ve fired up my Grundig Mini World PE pocket radio! I`m afraid it had been disused for several years, a decade? once I had direct-entry digital portables. It`s a neat little radio, 4 x 3 by less than 1 inch. Seems heavier than expected. In a tight pouch where the dust accumulated, keeping the radio pristine. To my surprise it came right on, the 2xAA batteries still good, and not leaking, maybe originals? Maxell Alkaline Ace, ``no mercury/cadmium added``, dated 12-2004!

I`m impressed with its sensitivity, if not the selectivity, using only the telescopic rod antenna which extends to only 14.5 inches. Reception depends a lot on its orientation, whether it`s being touched, or near metal objects. Tried clipping on the inside longwire, but not surprisingly causing overload.

Tiny analog ``slide-rule`` dial is backwards, the highest frequencies of each band on the left. Tuning wheel is hard to move and land on exactly the center frequency. Also exhibits some drift? Besides FM and AM, six SW bands: 49, 41, 31, 25, 19 and 16m, mostly with a good overrun around the edges, but not quite enough now --- barely reaches WRNO but not WOOB WRMIs.

Tiny speaker sounds tinny, better with hi-fi stereo headphones plugged in, not mere buds. Does receive stereo on FM only, visually indicated by a red light. Has a plastic belt clip, I would be very careful not to break, and the non-swiveling antenna is a drawback. Better put it in a breast pocket instead. (This is the only log reported on this receiver.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 14179-USB, July 14 at 1253, NU1AW/portable 9 ``IARU HQ Station``, making quick contacts, mostly 5&9, as if in a contest, such as with N3XZ, YV4MT. Evidently simplex but all others are much weaker or inaudible. How can it be at IARU HQ with such a call? ARRL shows NU1AW is axually club at ARRL itself, Newington CT, David Sumner. Is it he? Now somewhere in the /9 call area (IL/IN/WI), never specified, nor does he even mention his own call with every contact (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1938 monitoring: confirmed Saturday July 14 at 1431 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 6190-CUSB, mostly sufficient to 1500* via UTwente SDR. NOT confirmed Saturday July 14 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, instead Blalock the Blaster! Skedgrid now shows `Full Gospel Hour[sic]` daily at 2300-2330. NOT confirmed UT Sunday July 15 at 0200 on WRMI 7780 either, instead Radio Prague in English (in addition to 0300 on 9395).

Confirmed UT Sunday July 15 at 0345 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Missouri, about 9 minutes in, so started late circa 0336; fair vs storm crashes.

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, confirms this one:
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 CUSB, July 15:
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2018/07/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_15.html
1030-1100 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sun, weak to fair``
Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 0400 WRMI webcast only, non-direxional
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1939?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1939?]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.953v, as of early July 15, WTWW-3 transmitter not heard lately at random day and night chex. In fact last time logged for sure was July 1, tho there was a JBA carrier July 7. Definitely off Saturday July 14 at 1950, while 9475 has defaulted to ham show. Also off UT Sunday July 15 at 0026 check (when 5830 is already on instead of 9475), and still off after 0100 when 5085 has come up.

Until --- final check at 1803 UT July 15, now 15810- is back on with PPPP // 9475 SFAW about his reluctance to be interviewed by the WSJ,

5085, UT Sunday July 15 at 0101, WTWW-2 has just come on the air, with classic country, then a long string of rambling ham commercials by Ted, ending with Heil Sound, to intro `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` which does not really start until 0111! Bob is airing 40-50-year-old recordings originally on 4-track tape, when he was playing a modified Hammond organ in a restaurant. NO signal on 15810v to // it any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 10100, July 15 at 0027, WWRB is JBA but enough to match this second harmonic to VG S9+25 fundamental 5050 with weekend-only over-wrought gospel huxters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
