Hauser
** ARGENTINA [non]. 6060, UT Monday Nov 11 at 0136, something in
Spanish but not // 5040v RHC; yes, it`s RAE Spanish relay via WRMI
with its multi-lingual ID at 0138, despite its M-F only schedule, so I
guess playing back the Friday edition containing the DX program (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, UT Mon Nov 11 at 0140, RHC English is not on yet here,
but 6000 is at Item 1 in Arnie`s `DXers Unlimited`, suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST) see also ARGENTINA [non]

** CUBA. 9640.006, Nov 11 at 1334, RHC S9+10/20 with humbuzz and
slightly off frequency. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9335, Nov 11 at 1327, 1 kHz tone; 1328 Yankee Doodle,
1329 VOA sign-on from ``Washington DC``, JBA for a Cambodian hour via
Tinang, PHILIPPINES (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: since last Sunday
WOR was reported to have aired partially on IRRS, 7290 via Romania,
until 2000, I`m checking this week Nov 10 via UTwente SDR: NO, from
1940 music; 1951 starts `Between the Lines`, which is going to get cut
off after no more than 9 minutes. Obviously there is no point in
trying to predict when bits of WOR will appear on this transmission,
besides the committed full airing Mondays at 1900 (or 1859? from last
week). Otherwise IRRS programming is rather random as on continuous
webcast, much of it undefined on the program schedule. More: below

Confirmed Nov 10 after 2130 on WRMI 7780, poor S4-S7.

Also confirmed UT Monday Nov 11 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, good via
UTwente; had been // 9395 but something else now direct, mentions Xmas
already, so the Countdown 2 Xmas show? Not on sked.

Also confirmed UT Monday Nov 11 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair S9-S6.
Maybe the 9395 // has shifted an hour later? NO, at 0229 the usual
wrong `Son-Power` ID, into Afro/Indo percussive World Music. This is
where R. Tirana should now appear the others days of week, and I hope
WOR can be restored to fill this gap, as our only airing on 9395 and
NNW antenna.

Confirmed UT Monday Nov 11 starting at 0402 on Area 51 webcast; S9-S8
on WBCQ 5129.98 check just in time at 0429.

Also confirmed UT Monday Nov 11 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, S9+20/30! Other
weeks has been very poor to inaudible; you never know how the late MUF
will hold up. Also good audio this time on the webcast.

Confirmed Monday Nov 11 joined-in-progress (JIP) at 1900.5 on IRRS
7290 via ROMANIA, as I am going from Alaska to Argentina, which
happens at 1.6 minutes into the program, so as I calculated last week,
this playback is starting a bit before 1859! Trouble is, 7290
transmission does not bring it up that early, altho the carrier came
on at *1857.5 as heard via UTwente SDR, almost muscling aside the ACI
from CRI if bandwidth be narrowed. There was no modulation before WOR
JIP, no Triumphal March from Aïda, no sign-on, no ID. WOR was planned
to start at 1902 after some news, or maybe 1901.5 matching the
sesquiminute offset when official start was 1815. Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), Sun Nov 10 after 2300, I`m ready for `Uncle Bill`s
Melting Pot` on WBCQ webcast --- it`s running, but silent. I don`t
check 7490 itself, assuming it too be missing. Better luck if for the
third week he gets a filler repeat 25 hours later, UT Tue at 0000. But
the webcast comes to life at 2355 with IS & ID loop; 0000 UT Monday
Nov 11 into: `Radio TImTron Worldwide`! But that`s the show scheduled
on Area 51 and its webcast. He says the date is Nov 10 [belch], so
it`s a different one than yesterday at the same time; mostly music.

Then I compare the 7490 and 5130 webcasts, and find they are *both*
with TT, but a good many seconds apart. Somehow A51 stream has got
onto the 7490 stream! So we are also missing `Le Show`; at 0014 I
check 7490 itself and find it *is* running there as usual, as UBMP
probably did an hour earlier without the webcast backup.

At 0141 I check again for `Encore` classical music which now starts a
UT hour later at 0100 Monday, but the webcast is still from A51.
Encore *is* playing on 7490.072v, fair S9/+10 at first but fading down
by 0152 final announcement which I can`t copy. Brice always wraps up
early allowing last piece to ``play out``, but it`s likely to be cut
off when the hour be up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6060, Nov 11 at 0015, SMTV on WRMI is *still* double-audio
feed 4 seconds apart; no RHC back on 6060 yet. And *still* Nov 11 at
about 1320 when the frequency is 7570; citing animal attributes
alfabetically, koalas, llamas, lobsters, mice ---.

15770, Nov 11 at 1833, SMTV via WRMI *still* with two programs mixing
at once, but I can no longer match them 4, or any, seconds apart
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6115, Nov 11 at 0141, WWCR-1 with far-right talk, S9+30 with
squeal as always on this transmitter. Too bad they don`t put all that
signal to better use (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Monday Nov 11 at 1839, zero signal from KVOH leaving
absolutely nothing on 16m except the unIDs on 17783.78 and 17850,
qq.vv. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, November 11 at
1259-1308 UT as I am awake around local sunrise, 1305: 774-NW,
702-WSW, 612-WSW, 747-NW, 828-NW, 882-WSW, 972-NW, 1242-NW,
1503-both?, 1566-NW --- i.e. the usual suspects from Au/NZ and
Japan/Korea S. Most of these were at the very margin of inaudibility
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4102+, Nov 11 at 1310, JBA ``W`` and other Morse CW
letters or number, from that Weather beacon somewhere in the desert
SW. Still no sign of ``A`` beacon on 2097.3 which used to come in
stronger every dekasecond (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17783.78-USB approx., Mon Nov 11 at 1838, weak 2-way in
Spanish, ``cambio``, INTRUDERS but no problem from or to 17775 KVOH,
since it`s absent again. Surely not still Simi-fiery around there?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17850, Nov 11 at 1840, JBA carrier, presumed 3 x 5950
WRMI harmonic; with sporadic E boost since WRMI Radio Africa 21525 is
steady S9+10 with gospel huxter in English; rather than usual JBA
carrier or not at all on 13m. Since KVOH is AWOL, 17850 is the OSOB
and SSOB! Discounting the USB intruders on 17783.78 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** CUBA. 9630-9650, Nov 9 at 2301, RHC ID amid its 22-24 UT Spanish
newsmagazine, buzzfield over this range surrounding and out of 9640.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, Nov 10 at 0733, only RHC left, Spanish song but
presumably English service; so what will become of Esperanto now
rescheduled to 0800 UT Sundays on one 49mb frequency? Unfortunately, I
am still awake at 0801, when 6165 and all others are off. Something`s
always wrong at RHC.

However, wide-awake in Germany, Wolfgang Bueschel also monitored:
``Something's always wrong at RHC, on Sunday Nov 10th. In 0750-0800 UT
slot only a single RHC English transmission noted on 6165even, not
6000 6060, nor 6100 kHz outlet on air - 0750 UT S=9+10dB in remote SDR
at Edmonton, Alb-CAN. 6165 kHz was on duty til 0800:10 final piano
music theme, 0800:56 UT Bauta TX OFF switch.

When traced the 49 mb then, noted a short appearance on air, and an
empty carrier on 6100even little stronger S=9+20dB - than 6165,
seemingly RHC Bauta as empty carrier on air at single minute duration,
the technician at Bauta were real 0801:42 to 0802.43 ON AIR
on 6100 kHz in 49 mb positively; BOT NOT ON AIR RHC Bauta in Esperanto
special - nothing today on a single fq 6100 kHz``

Note: gh has removed redundant ``kHz`` after every frequency and
``UT`` after every time, just as wb inserts them into my reports to
make them explicit yet redundant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** IRELAND. 4651-USB, Nov 10 at 0718, Shanwick Radio with notice to
some flight about severe turbulence; some CODAR swish QRM. This is a
long-standing joint venture with Prestwick AP, Scotland near Glasgow,
the one scandalized by connexions with Trump`s failing golf course.
EiBi shows the transmitter site is Shannon (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Nov 10 at 0740, RNZI the SSOB and virtually the
OSOB during Sunday evening classic rock show, playing `Nights in White
Satin` by Moody Blues, with `I Love You`` refrain over and over, a
great tune keeping me awake a little longer; DJ announcement, and
0745, I don`t know, another love-song from `J.C. Super-Star` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, Sunday Nov 10 at 1414, finally a pirate
outside early evening prime-time. Hard rock music with screams at
S7-S8. 1418 DJ ID as ``Energy Radio, ERG``, offers QSL cards; fragment
of song with intelligible lyric, ``You`re gonna die``; 1419 a bit of
the screamsong again and cutoff 1420*. More detailed logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,60116.0.html
and on same board recently more logs of it on 6950, 6790, even 9417,
Please QSL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 930, Nov 10 at 1329 UT, WKY, OKC, with double audio!
Closing pubaffs show `Sunday Morning Magazine` about elexions in OK,
when to register for primary, etc.; and ID for WWLS 98.1 The Sports
Animal which is its normal programming source. No one paying attention
at station to suppress TSA at least during this breakaway! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 13, Nov 10 at 0128 UT, closing credits of excellent
OETA program `Gallery` flash ``Copywrite XXXX``, too quick to catch
the year let alone tape or photo it, but I am sure of how the Oklahoma
*Educational* TV Authority spelt Copyright. N.B., Sagebrush Bob! There
will be plenty more chances to see it about 27-28 minutes after these
Central start times = UT minus 6; and maybe even on demand:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5850, Nov 10 at 0722, Brother Scare via WRMI
remarking that He is ``confined to the house``, but is allowed to talk
on the radio and is wearing a wireless mike so He can walk around. Not
the first time I have run across this. So is He ``confined`` as in
house-arrest, maybe with an ankle monitor to keep Him away from the
girls? Or confined due to disability? Allan Weiner must know, having
visited Him recently. There has got to be a public document about His
legal status somewhere, if anyone could uncover it (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 6150, Nov 9 at 2241, S4-S8 news magazine in American
English, mentions Bloomberg, dangers of robots taking over jobs even
in the Press, 2244 another topic; 2254 about the Theremin. What`s
this, CRI? Before hourtop, Marco Werman closing `The World` joint
produxion of WBUR, PRI, and BBCWS, and indeed this is BBCWS on a
previously unknown transmission, from where? Unusual to get a readable
signal from them since they blew away their intentional North American
SW audience years ago. HFCC shows it is via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES!
I would never have guessed this were the site. 250 kW at 200 degrees
away from here for CIRAF 51W and 54, i.e. Indonesia and Malaysia, at
2200-2300 only. Something new? There is one more English hour at
2300-2400 on 11825 and three other Tinang relays in Burmese, Korean.

We get `The World` on KOSU M-F at 20-21 UT; also heard it on CBW 990
in the 06-07 hour. I once tried to convince WRMI to pick it up in
penance for all crap from Walterboro paying the bills. But we`ll have
to do with BBCWS.

When all is it scheduled there? I`ve avoided trying to pin down any
programming on BBCWS since there have been so many different SW
streams, zero for us. But I try, for Monday Nov 11 -- no such program
in the 22-23 hour or anywhen by that title! The specific time I heard
it, does lead to `Boston Calling` with the robot topic for Nov 9, so
that`s how it`s repackaged on BBCWS:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csy5vb
Clearly it`s only once a week for 27 minutes at 2232 UT Saturdays, one
earlier airing at 0432, and repeated at 0432 UT Sunday. Despite its
original title, BBCWS diminishes it as an American POV de Boston.

But there are a lot of clips, podcasts, a look at Marco and his bio:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00y7fqz
So the entire hour 5X a week would still be needed via WRMI (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7457-USB, Nov 10 at 1427, AF MARS net, two stations saying
``no traffic; net is now free; out``. Does free mean open for random
QSOs, or finished? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9619.9 approx., Nov 9 at 2256, het with weaker 9620.0,
one at least in Chinese; 2300 timesignal and one goes off, the other
by 2301*. VOA Chinese via Tinang, PHILIPPINES scheduled in the 22 hour
only, so the CNR1 jammer presumably a bit off-frequency to boot (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7545, Nov 10 at 1424, non-Standard Chinese translating brief
items in English mentioning Baltic States, Gorbachov, atop weaker
audio, i.e. VOA Cantonese via Tinang, PHILIPPINES and jammed at
1300-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday November
11 at 0426, 11 minutes into on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, so started circa
nominal 0415. Readable but marred by local high noise level between
1.7 and 2.4 MHz, and another narrow peak at 2.68 MHz, but fortunately
no problem higher. (I dread the Holiday Season with Xmas lighting all
over, altho 2 or 3 neighbors run Xmassy lighting yearound.) Next:

http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Nov 10 at 0727, SMTV via WRMI, and 4 seconds later the
same SMTV via WRMI, i.e. double audio feed, one of them slightly
softer than the other, ruining their own programming, partly in
English.

15770, Nov 10 at 1431 & 1548 chex, SMTV now on this WRMI, *still* with
double audio. Clearly nohuman at SMTV HQ nor WRMI is paying attention
to what is going out, so why should we? I wonder how this happen, Bob?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, Nov 9 at 2312, WWRB is already on this early for
Saturday evening, S9+20 and OK modulation! with what else, a gospel
huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday Nov 10, I`ve had WTWW-2 on a receiver in the
background for an hour or more of hamtalk, when finally at 0119 I
first detect some organ music, so `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` has
started after 7 pm local, not 8 pm as on the website. I bring up
$ tereo webcast of familiar tunes, finally `White Xmas`, abruptly
ending at 0143, no show outro, cut to ID and immediately back to rock
music, `The Wanderer`, which would have been neat to hear on the organ
too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 720, Nov 10 at 1335 UT, TexMexmx, break for super-hype voice
actor to proclaim, ``--- 104.1 y 720 AM, la estación de la raza``.
Null/separable from WGN, but soon outfading, is KSAH Universal City
(San Antonio) TX. NRC AM Log says the slogan is ``Norteña 104.1``
which is not a mere translator (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Sunday Nov 10 at 1339 UT, surprised to hear the tones
of Jim Bohannon in the light of day, guest author who is a
``Bible-believing Christian``. This is certainly my semi-local KQAM
Wichita KS, atop remnant of Vietnamese KNGO The Metroplex making a
slow SAH. But KQAM is not a JIMBO affiliate per:
http://www.jimbohannonshow.com/station-finder/
rather 3 other 1480s all at normal nighttimes or later repeats
pre-sunrise. But what do they know? Jimbo is among the Big Talkers at:
http://stecklinecommunications.com/kqam/
Sundays at 12-14 UT; and weeknights live at 03-06 UT (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, Nov 10 at 1352 UT, ``Cape Radio 100.3 News-Talk``,
1359 local PSAs for Cape Girardeau, caperadionews.com; rapid legal ID
I think fits in a 1550 mention, 1400 Fox ``news``. Is KAPE now on 5 kW
direxional day power. Lucky MO has two others 1550s. From ENE, I`m
really trying to null it and hear wanted KMAD, Madill on the south
side of OK, often silent but lately reported active (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Date for this omitted by mistake: it was November 4:
TA conditions must be VG, as earlier Mark Connelly in MA
reported Syria ``inbooming`` (where did he get that?) on 783 kHz. Too
late for that now, but at 0550-0600 I decide to perform a JBA MW
carrier search on the R-75 with E/W longwire, and find plenty of them:
531, 549, 558(2), 567, 585(2), 595.9, 621, 639, 684, 693(2), 711, 729,
738, 747, 756, 774(2: See SPAIN), 801, 837, 882, 909, 936(2), 954, 963
(both sides of my 960 local), 999, 1053, 1062, 1089, 1125(2), 1134,
1215, 1305, 1566 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1110, Nov 10 at 0753 UT, KFAB Omaha in C2CAM normally
owns this clear channel at night, but now has some musical QRM with
SAH, hard to DF with KFAB nulled. Of course, the only other 50 kW at
night 1110 station is WBT Charlotte NC, but it`s news/talk too; with
deep nulls toward each other. Suspect it`s one of the numerous
daytimers in between running at night. Or maybe KRDC Pasadena CA, all
20 kW supposedly WSW into the Pacific but C&W/Disney format (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6780-CW, Nov 10 at 1410, beeps like timesignals exactly
one second apart, except a prolonged one every 23 seconds, pause and
resuming 4 seconds later, over and over; not matching any real
timesignal. Very strange (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7850-USB, Nov 10 at 1422, VP 2-way in Spanish. CHU
better hurry up and reclaim its frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

SWL/DX/MEDIA PROGRAMS

Now fully updated for B-19 and non-DST seasons:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, Fri Nov 8 at 2030, WRMI with world music
fill, still no Radio Tirana relay; it`s Greekish, close enough?

9395, UT Sat Nov 9 at 0230, JBA music too, maybe Greekish and no RT. I
neglected to mention the expected frequency for this in last report
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7335, 7355, 7365, 7375, 6125, Nov 9 at 0657, all
with varying degrees of jamming against nothing, as now Radio Martí is
only on 7435 way atop jamming, 6030 & 5980? under jamming. Something`s
always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command, wasting its own
resources and causing untold harm to innocent bystations, who had
better avoid any frequency used anywhen by RM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA:WOR:WRMI

** CUBA. Correxion: I wrote that ``6165 continues`` while I meant to
say 6100 continues, after 6165 quits; fixed:

6165, Nov 8 at 0750 tune-in, just in time to hear modulation cut off
to dead air at S9+10; but 6100 continues S9+20/30 into `From the
Bookshelf`. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, 6100, 6000, Nov 9 at 0702, all three RHC English are
still on with good modulation, but unlikely all will last another full
hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Nov 9 at 1603, S9+20 of dead air, no hurry to turn off
after 1400-1600 CRI English relay, yet unknown how well modulated
today. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Nov 9 at 1605, RHC Spanish still on here, S9/+10,
unknown for how much longer but better than // 15140 only S9 and
undermodulated. Both 13s are off, but 11760 is also still on at S9+10.
Something`s always wrong? at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTTENING
DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1090, Nov 9 at 0553 UT, I finally tune in before local
midnight, Spanish with KAAY from right angle easily nulled, making a
slow SAH of exactly 1.0 Hz, advice on how to accomplish e-commerce;
0556 into choral multi-verse NA; 0600 a quick ID which dammit I cannot
copy, but seems to mention FM, presumably linked to this XEAU
Monterrey; mentions milenio.com, and into infomercial for lentes de
leer (reading glasses). Now there is a UK TA het QRMing from 1089,
which I can`t null as long as I do null KAAY.

IRCA Mexican log says of XEAU: ``5000/500 watts, FM Tu 103.7 [Zona
Urbana], 1200-0600 REG ORO //XHFMTU 103.7FM. Moved to FM? (Web stream
ID is FM only, but AM is still included in 6/19 IFT list)`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6929-USB, Nov 8 at 2305, S6-S8, finally a pirate
heard after not any since Oct 22; just in time for the FRW deadline:
novelty tune, 2306 DJ announcement, hard to understand, drunk?
something about a ``continuing problem, RF in there``, apologizes for
poor quality. Lots of background noise while talking, but the music
was OK. 2312 fades down markedly to S3-S4, music JBA; still at 2329
recheck, music S5-S6.

These say it was Argyle Radio; all reports from the north/east, even
England, but I doubt this was out of Scotland:

(During this semihour one might instead have been listening to the
first airing of WORLD OF RADIO 2007 on WRMI 9955; started out heavily
jammed, but then it quit and WRMI faded up.)
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 6170-6175-6180, Nov 9 at 0700, DRM noise, which at
0700-0730 only is RRI in German, 90 kW, 307 degrees from Ziganeschti;
coincidentally? 6175 is also in DRM later testing? from RFI FRANCE at
0900-1200 per HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, Friday Nov 8 at 2300 on WRMI 9955; tune-in at 2258 to hear
wall-of-noise jamming over WRMI! The Cuban jammers have not observed
the EST switch of gusano programming like everything else on 9955 to
one real hour later. The main time they *need* to jam it is now
0015-0100 UT Tue-Sat against Noticiero and Radio Libertad! However,
S/N ratio soon improves as WRMI fades up a bit just as I am talking
about RHC -- tnx a lot! By 2312 recheck, WRMI is S9+20 and the jamming
is off, amazing, as if they realized their mistake. WOR remains VG
complete to 2329 and not cut off making my ``standard disclaimer``
twice redundant.

Also confirmed UT Saturday November 9 at 0140 the 0130 on WRMIs 5850
VG >> weak 5010, but JBA carrier here on 7780. At 0150 I check UTwente
SDR where 7780 is still arriving well!

As usual, I sleep/forget past 1330 for the secret new 1300 Saturday
WOR airing on WRMI 15770, which would probably be JBA here; hope
someone can reconfirm it.

Hamburger Lokalradio has been off due to serious illness of Michael
Kittner, but it could come back without notice, so need to keep
checking. Sat Nov 9 before 1600, UTwente is not getting it on
9485-CUSB, but usually did not get it anyway when really operational.
Can`t get a connexion to the OH5AE SDR. Next:

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat Nov 9 I don`t remember to check AAAWWW until
about 0153 UT on WBCQ webcast, now outgoing a real hour later by EST,
0100+ UT, when music is playing so I know immediately that A&A must be
away again. Yes, soon hear the tones of TimTron with his *very*
different style of programming; reminiscing about the good ole days,
and soon joined by Jason. They mention that one other frequency is on
now experimentally, 6160, reports wanted, and he will leave it on a
few minutes more, but only a few due to electrical expenses in Maine.
I quickly check it at 0202, but all I get is a JBA carrier on 6161,
suspect something else like a local birdie. Fortunately, John Carver
heard the whole thing this week:

``Tonight's AAWWW --- Program started on time this evening on 7490
although a very poor signal. I checked 7490 a couple of hours earlier
and it was a much better signal. TimTron is hosting. Goes into music
immediately as he says nothing is right in the studio and he has to
fix it. When the music ends Jason slips into the studio to cohost with
Tim. Tim announced that they were also on 6160 and I immediately tune
there. Much better signal. Then Tim talks about the work he did on the
6160 transmitter. Jason mentions that the 7490 transmitter had gone
down today for a bit so Tim talks about getting that back on the air
and how he hopes it keeps going till after he leaves for home.

He also mentioned that the superstation transmitter was down again and
that Allan had insisted on Tim going to the station to get it going.
Tim was upset as he wasn't finished winterizing his home and he wanted
to go back and work on it instead. Said that when he got home he'd
have to chip ice off of things to work on them. He also said it had
snowed today at the station.

More clips and music and then Tim talking about his introduction to
and experience with computers. He mentioned that the transmitter
problem with the superstation will require a man from the transmitter
company [Continental] and him to tear it all apart and he's upset
about that as it's still under warranty. He's waiting there for the
other guy to show up and says the guy should be there sometime this
next week. Some more bits and music from Michael Ketter. Program was
off the air at 0159. John Mid-North Indiana``

Note that Tim`s home is far away in Skowhegan, central Maine, 140 air
miles away, 183 driving miles from Monticello. He also mentioned that
he used to bunk-in Monticello for a week or more at a time. As for the
superstation, at end of WOR 2007 I cite the latest imaginary 24-hour
schedule for it, all on 9330 with times, languages, azimuths, targets,
powers -- some halved to only 250 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 6060, Nov 8 at 2303, WRMI with SMTV, and no RHC; will they
dare to turn 6060 back on as long as WRMI be there? Not checked later
until -0200 WRMI/RAE span (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Nov 9 at 0453, WTWW-1 is on, S9+10/20 undermodulated
SFAW, weaker than neighbor 5935 WWCR PMS at +20/30. Dave Kenny points
out that the WTWW website now displays a much-abbreviated schedule: 8
pm-12 am Central on 5830 (= 0200-0600 UT), and only three hours a week
on 9475: Sunday 9 am-12 pm Central (=1500-1800 UT, i.e., church-goin`
hours; to be confirmed?) That would explain why we never hear 9475
anymore nor 5830 earlier or later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, Nov 9 at 0459-0500+, WRNO active with gospel huxtress
in English, S9/+20, a bit past 0500 but probably about to cut off the
0200-0500 remaining broadcast with no more Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sat Nov 9 at 1601, KVOH is S9+10/20, the SSOB by far
and would be the OSOB if not for 17830 JBA carrier from Ascension.
Suspect an HF sporadic E boost. Should have checked right away, but at
1830 the DXMap does show a lot of HF Es altho mostly over eastern USA.
1601:15 opening `Wavescan` edition #559 for Nov 10 but gets a
headstart on its sole KVOH airing. There are 28 more each week, mostly
on WRMI per new DX/SWL/Media Programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 12160, Sat Nov 9 at 1609, WWCR with old lo-fi music ending
with a wow; could it be Talking Machine Show? That`s not until two
hours later. Not solid signal, not getting any sporadic E help over
this path. Soon gospel huxter starts talking off-mike and can`t copy
details, but he spends a lot of time listing numerous affiliates, such
as 1000 and 1240 in Kentucky, KXEL 1540, at one-hour times mostly on
Sundays, and finally WWCR at 10 am Saturdays on 12.160, and two other
times which strike me as incorrect. Own churches are in Philadelphia,
Washington DC and western Kentucky. Finally at 1614 mentions full name
of ministry, ``Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of Apostolic Faith,
Inc.`` matching that in WWCR schedule, and introducing another
speaker, some late bishop who starts off singing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, Nov 9 at 0705 UT, ad for texting RANK to some number,
and another ad for something in northern Michigan, Petoskey. So it`s
certainly 50-kW ND daytimer cheating again, WJNL, Kingsley near
Traverse City. I`ve often checked for this but there has been too much
KGYN even nulled. Now I`m not even trying to do that, on the east-west
longwire which should favor KGYN. Its own adherence to legally nulling
toward Philadelphia at night is questionable, but maybe now they
really are (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Hauser
** ALBANIA [non]. 15770, Nov 6 at 2030, WRMI goes right into the polka
from World Music reel, filling instead of Radio Tirana as now
scheduled M-F during this semihour. Also music instead of RT for the
other transmission, UT Thu Nov 7 at 0230. Peter Hanson in FL also has
been hearing music instead of RT previous nights. Again Nov 7 at 2047
check of 15770, world music fill, not RT. I have notified WRMI about
this problem, so hope it will be fixed soon (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALGERIA [non]. 6060, Nov 8 at 0529, JBA Qur`an from RTA which is
now here at 04-06 via FRANCE to the Algerian Outback; and weaker //
6105 at 05-07. This 6060 will of course QRM Habana if and when it
resume across and beyond this same span --- will RTA ever get one or
both of their own new SW sites going?? HFCC B-19 continues to include
imaginary registrations for separate frequencies via ORG and BEC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Nov 6 at 2202, RAE in Italian, good via
WRMI, aimed NNW rather than toward Italy. About 6060: see USA: WRMI!
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. 326 kHz, Nov 8 at 0802, dash and YQK, which is
200 watts from Kenora, Ontario. Also on same frequency, different
pitch, MA, 400 watts from Midland, Texas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 7850-CUSB, Nov 8 at 1438, still no CHU. Richard Langley,
NB, replies to my previous reports of Nov 5-6:

``From: National Research Council Canada System status
https://nrc.canada.ca/en/chu-short-wave-station/
3.330 MHz: online
7.850 MHz: offline since [2019-10-28 at 17:00 UTC]
14.670 MHz: online

I'll try to find out why. I personally found them missing on 2
November when setting up to record WRMI. I try to start each recording
with a time signal from CHU or WWV as the recorder I typically use
does not time stamp the files.

[later:] From the NRC officer in charge of the transmitters:
"I have had a series of problems with both the main and backup 7850
kHz transmitters and now possibly with the antenna system. Due to
other commitments and bad weather that signal is still off the air.
"I will probably not get it back up this week, I am hoping for early
next week." -- Richard Langley`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO
2007, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 7435, Nov 8 at 1440, song at S9, first wondering if it could
be R. Martí, but not // 13820 music, and RM finishes 7435 at 1400.
Instead it`s CRI in Russian at 1400-1500, 500 kW, 37 degrees from SZG
site toward DVR but also USward (and co-channel 7435 in Nepali, 500 kW
at 283 degrees from Kunming, not audible here) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 6180, Nov 7 at 0051 no CRI relay signal yet nor on
9580, but at 0101, 6180 via CUBA is S9 yet JBM in CRI English; much
weaker than 6020 via ALBANIA, which during this hour is still listed
also on 9570. 6180 CRI English is scheduled to overlap with Kashgar,
East Turkistan site for S Asia, which could cause at least an echo.
RNA Brasil should beware of occasionally coming up on 6180 instead of
11780. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2007, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Nov 6 at 2027, RHC English S9/+10 but distorted and
splattering; unlike previous days, 15370 is not also in English,
instead now multi-lingual IDs as if signing on, 2029 Spanish intro of
Arabic ``por FM e internet`` (only), and indeed into Arabic.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. We are within two sesquiweeks of
confusion since B-19 began for everyone else, then the unDST shift,
and Arnie says his new sked won`t be in full effect until Nov 18
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 7380, Nov 6 at 2204, no signal from RHC English to Africa,
previously confirmed as having switched to an hour earlier on same
frequency; just as well, due to ACI from Radio Martí now on 7375 this
hour only. Any jamming of that could also bleed over into RHC, tsk2.
The ultimate B-19 schedule shows this transmission to be on 11880. But
next day Nov 7 at 2117, 7380 is back in Arabic, 2200 English into
voice-over translation of a speech in Spanish, but sometimes ahead of
it, must be from script. ACI from 7375 RM cuts on at *2200.5.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO
2007, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Nov 7 at 0100, RHC English is JBM and suptorted, S9;
6165 has even less modulation but more signal, S9+10. So English still
exists during this hour altho the ultimate B-19 sked via Wolfgang
Bueschel shows both not starting until 0200 and then running until
0800; joined at 0500-0700 by 6060 and 6100; at 0600-0700 by 5040 where
English has also shifted to 0000-0100. As of Nov 7 at 0711, 6000 is
JBM, 6100 still on and VG, 6165 undermodulated.

6165, Nov 8 at 0750 tune-in, just in time to hear modulation cut off
to dead air at S9+10; but 6165 continues S9+20/30 into `From the
Bookshelf`. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5980, 6125, 7375, Nov 8 at 0531, jamming against nothing:
5980 wall of noise, no RM until 0600; lighter pulse jamming on the
others: 6125 RM finished at 0400; 7375 RM uses only at 22-23.
Something`s always wrong at the DCJC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 11880, Nov 7 at 1412, CRI English at S3-S7 is still
here and one second ahead of the CUBA relay moved to 15700, S9+30. Now
11880 site is Kashgar, land of Uighur brainwashing (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 2007, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT [and non]. 9900, Nov 6 at 2227, JBA carrier with flutter.
Could it be Cairo? Trying to tell whether the sole (?) surviving
English sesquihour from 2115 really exist; registered as 125 kW, 325
degrees from Abis to W Europe but consequently USward. So would end at
2245. But could already be 500 kW from CNR DOF site in China at
2230-0030; and at 2328 recheck the 9900 is VP fluttering in Chinese.

I do find a long-delayed but just published log in Nov NZ DX Times:
``9900 2230 EGYPT R Cairo very weak in EE; CHINA, CNR1 fair in CC
jamming [sic] R Cairo, 13/9 (Ken Baird, Wainuiomata ** Using the
League’s Northland SDR)``

Only a few services are allegedly extant in B-19:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=B19&broadc=ERU
What about Latin American services? Scheduled: 2215-2330 9545
Portuguese, 2330-0045 Arabic 9620, 0045-0200 Spanish 9875???

9545 not checked yet, but at 0032 no 9620, at 0051 no 9875 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [and non]. 9800, Nov 8 at 0744, S9-S7 of rock music, 0745
Japanese announcement, traditional music, then `Autumn Leaves`; not
much else on band except two WRMI TOMBS, 9395 & 9455 and two other
Cuban jammers against nothing on 9565, 9955. NHK now runs here at
0700-0900, 300 kW, 85 degrees from Yamata to CIRAF 14 & 16, i.e.
Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, still in the middle of their nights before
5 or 6 am local. Or are they really aiming at Hawaii before 11 pm
there? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 3475, Nov 7 at 1359, JBA carrier and not on 3480 or
3485; today`s frequency for Voice of the People. Only 3475 is shown in
the latest Aoki/NDXC. No check for the rest of the jumparounds today
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 341 kHz, Nov 8 at 0803 UT, no signal from Enid`s
only beacon, EI; just OIN from Oberlin KS. Of course hardly any
flights would need it at this hour of our minor regional Woodring
airport. Still no EI at 1955 UT daytime Nov 8
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615+ and 17705, Nov 8 at 1356, SRI with separate
programming but not on 17895; usually 17705 is the odd one off. Only
significant signals on band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. On the noticiasdx yg José Bueno notifies that REE has
resumed its Spanish DX program, `Amigos de la Onda Corta` hosted by
Antonio Buitrago, with details of the ``Programa del 31 de Octubre
2019, Sábados a las 14.00 horas. Jueves a las 18.30 (rep.)``

For PROGRAMAS we are linked from REE`s website to:
http://www.rtve.es/radio/programas/
which is an exhaustive alfabetical roster of all? RTVE programs on all
networks including this one:
http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/audios/amigos-de-la-onda-corta/

with archive of 301 podcasts showing that it stopped in Nov 2014, did
one more in April 2017, and has just resumed with two new 2019
editions, the newer one dated Nov 7 about the World Radio Conference,
in Egypt. Durations vary widely, this one 46:30, last week`s 29:45.
The older ones just under 50 minutes, some 55. Must make it hard to
fit into SW schedules, but primarily as podcasts, duration does not
matter.

Antonio Buitrago was presenting AdlOC until he got top job to head
revived REE. Glad he has found time to resume it. But when? REE is NOT
on the SW air at 1400 UT! Or is that HNE? In that case UT would be
1300, even earlier during dark period. Maybe 1400 was the UT during
summer time, so now one hour later at 1500 UT, just as transmission
starts? And Thursday at 1730, 1830 or 1930 UT??

Then I find this more explicit header:

``Amigos de la onda corta Jueves a las 18.30 y 23.00 UTC. Sábados a
las 14.05 UTC`` [as if first airing imminent, and Sat be the repeat;
but again, are these summer timings really an hour later now?]

Then I find a current Nov 7 running program schedule, showing no such
program at 17:30, 18:30, 19:30, or any other Thursday time!

I try to find an REE listen-live link, but keep getting shunted to
their podcasts. Of course I can listen to the show that way, but why
not on SW or its own stream, of all programs?

Our Hitlist has a live audio link
http://radiolive-mp3-rtve.flumotion.com/rtve/radioexterior.mp3.m3u
but it does not work!

I have to turn on a radio and try to hear the North American frequency
9690 --- no reception. Instead the ME frequency 12030 works, poorly,
but at 1831 UT some show about the European economy, not AdlOC. Never
mind? (Glenn Hauser, Nov 7, WOR iog via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Alan Roe, compiler of the Hitlist, replies:

``Hi Glenn, The "REE live (alt)" link in the Hitlist, i.e.
http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/live_radio_PopUp/?id=&v=0.75&vp=&lang=es
is working or alternatively
http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/live_radio_PopUp/
also seems to work. It looks like the other link may have been
discontinued - I'll recheck in time for the next Hitlist update.
And have just found this link which seems to work OK:

** TURKEY [and non]. 15350.007, Nov 8 at 1350, TRT good with nice
Turkish music only slightly off-frequency; 1352 switch to IS prior to
closing. It`s the OSOB and SSOB from Hemisphere East --- is no one
else trying? Elsewhere on 19m, just Cuba and Miami.

11815.024, Nov 8 at 1401, TRT with Turkish news S7-S9, slightly more
off-frequency than predecessor 15350.007; hardly any NHK CCI, but a
SAH from there during 1433 music.

11540, Nov 8 at 1400, the Kurdo-Turco radio war continues it seems

** U S A. 521-MCW kHz, Nov 7 at 0720, NDBeacon ORC, 25 watts from

below AMBC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Nov 7 at 1410, K6FRC beacon in CA is JBA,
remaining the only one I ever hear on the 13550-13570 ISM HIFER band

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2006 monitoring: confirmed Wed Nov

Altho partially updated, the WRMI program skedgrid at
https://www.w4uvh.net/WRMIfqs
continues to show a System D block at 21-22 UT with variety of
programs including three airings of WOR! Except there are NO
frequencies for this hour. Just in case with a new season, I check
7780 again, Thu Nov 7 at 2100 when WOR has been imagined, and indeed
it`s really airing VORW as correctly shown on the System F grid (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 6060, Nov 6 at 2201, WRMI is on, S6-S9 with music
from SMTV as now scheduled from 2100, ex-5800 which is off, ex-4980.
6060 was chosen in tribute to the legacy frequency of RAE for WRMI`s
relay in Spanish also retimed to 0100, but again Nov 7 at that hour,
no RAE but music fill; and poor vs storm noise around here; 0138
recheck it`s rock music. At least RHC remains absent from 6060.

Oh2, Nov 7 at 2356 check of 6060, NOW RHC has come back in Spanish!
mixing with music which must be WRMI`s SMTV; and RHC // 11760 without
the music. So now there is a Miami/Habana collision, and Arnie`s
ultimate B-19 sked does show 6060 resumed all the way from 00 to 07
UT. I don`t check again until 0111 Nov 8, when by now RHC has gone
away, and WRMI is finally correctly airing RAE Argentina al Mundo in
Spanish on its legacy frequency, fair S7-S9+10 and a bit
undermodulated. So it remains to be heard how all this will shake out
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2007, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Nov 7 at 0713, WWCR is on again broadcasting nothing
but dead air at S9+20; the others modulate: 5935 PMS at S9+20/30; 4840
& 3215 TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1160, Nov 7 at 1401 UT, ``AM 1160 The Hope``, church info
for Naperville, soon losing to Spanish presumably Kansas City. WYLL
Chicago, U4 50/50 kW but seldom heard here and never well since day
pattern is circular tangent to SE, and night pattern tight to the
north (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1580, re my log of KQFN Tempe AZ, Rick Barton, AZ, replies:

``Hi Glenn, the KQFN story is about as confusing as it gets. KMIK did
transmit from Tempe/Mesa, but the rumor was, when KQFN came on, they
moved the transmissions from there to a site in SW Phoenix. I drove to
the site and confirmed it. The station is transmitting from a single
tower located just a cupla blocks south of 38th avenue and Indian
School Rd. The nearest address I could give you would be 3883 N. 38
Ave., Phoenix. The signal really loaded up my car radio at that
location. The tower can easily be seen from nearby Grand Avenue, just
to the east. regards from the southwest - rb`` (Glenn Hauser, DX

UNIDENTIFIED. 15022-LSB, November 8 at 1455, 2-way in colloquial
Spanish long contacts discussing women, full of puta-madres and even
coño. Which reminds me, we *never* hear any feminine voices on these
Spanish 2-ways; where are they? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)
