** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15476-, Sept 21 at 1357, JBA carrier direct
from LRA36; during their publicized special for arrival of spring
(really not until 0750 UT Monday Sept 23 --- about as late as it can
get on our calendar). Meanwhile, I know to have any chance of hearing
more than that, I need a remote receiver. I suspect many of them are
maxed out because of this. I finally find one in Brasil (not the main
Pardinho one) which connects at 1326, with W&W in Spanish talking
about Antártida, but not strong & clear enough to follow much. At 1335
I notice some ACI from 15470 in Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jamming against RFA
Tibetan via Tajikistan at 11-14.

I`m back on the SDR at 1408 when reception has improved, just in time
to hear a quick greeting by the well-known voice of Jeff White, and
some other voices. 1410 music starts and 1415 with lyrix maybe in
English. No more talk after that, and this SDR cuts me off at 1428.
The special is supposed to be repeated sometime later today.

At 1458 I try on UTwente, finding 15475 occupied by martial Chinese
vocal music, 1500 timesignal and CNR ID; and now noise jamming is
piled on. Aoki, EiBi, and HFCC do not show anything on 15475 at this
time, but the ChiCom must know better; a pox upon them.

Or this jamming is very outdated. Back on June 27-28, Observer,
Bulgaria reported about Radio Free Asia:
``1500-1600 NF 11675 SAI 100 kW / 300 deg EaAs Chinese,x 15475 BIB``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13500, 13565, 13635, 13765, 13830, 13900, 13965, 14030, Sept
21 at 1358, RHC-FM at 65-kHz intervals out of 13700-AM, but only the
inner ones have program modulation, extremely distorted, and with a
tone sounding lower than the usual F# above C-middle. The outer ones
get progressively weaker to only a trace at the margins. Hey, RHC, if
you`re going to broadcast in FM, at least make it clean and readable.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 15120, Fri Sept 20 at 2154, VOA in Bambara, via Grimesland
NC is very poor with carrier breakup/crackle, unlike // VG S9+25
13670. This is M-F only at 2130-2200. Why is Bambara so important to
VOA unlike countless other Afrolangs? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2000 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, Fri Sept 20 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S7 vs local noise level. After
``WNYW`` style ID, not upcut; unusually this time I utter my
introductory dekaword twice to compensate, but that usually happens to
the 2100 broadcasts; hear what happen Saturday. WRMI does not show it
on websked, but RFPI knows it is newly scheduled every Wed at 2100 to
South America; instead of WOR:
http://www.rfpi.eu/fr/nous-ecouter

Also confirmed UT Saturday Sept 22 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+20/30 but
some fading; 5010 fair; 7780 JBA carrier in HNL.

Also confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria:

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Sept 21 at 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`.
This week I do not check any of the SW frequencies, but AW says they
are all on except #4 on 6160v which ``flared out due to condensation``
when he tried to start it.

Says 5130v will start next week a ``good oldies program`` three nights
a week, Wed-Thu-Fri 7-9 pm [=23-01 into next UT days]; part of the
``loss leader`` $ 10/hour rate for two-hour minimum on that
transmitter. No politix this week, and Freddie is soon on the phone
with a lot of questions.

Frustratingly, SuperStation is still not operable, he thinx due to a
``design issue``. Two Continental engineers are up here today working
on it; this 500 kW #6 unit has been under construxion for three years.
He then goes into a very technical explanation, part of which I try to
follow: a driver issue. Output tube for 500 kW is a tetrode costing
$ 80K, and filament is water-cooled; 1000 amps at 19 volts. It takes 8
minutes to bring it up safely; runs on DC 3 phase. At 14 kv, 41 amps
to make 500 kW output. The antenna anyway now works nicely. Then he
gets into how bias is part of the electronic problem.

Here`s John Carver`s report on same: ``Tonight's show started on time
this evening on 7490. 5130 has the better signal but is cut off
promptly at 0100 so the next program can start. Voice over the theme
song says that 6160 is down this evening. Allan and Angela in the
studio. Opening remarks about families and compromise. Allan says 6160
transmitter is down because of condensation as the building it's in is
neither heated or air conditioned. Says it blew a lot of fuses and
such trying to start.

Next Allan states that they're having problems with the transmitter
for the superstation and there's been a couple engineers from the
company there for a week or two trying to work it all out. Problem is
with the huge water cooled tube and something about a bias. I'm a
spring maker by trade and not an electrician so am not up on all the
terminology. Allan believes it is a poor design and states that he and
Tim could probably do better but it's still under warranty so he's
letting the transmitter company handle it. He does say that the
antenna is working fine now.

First phone call at 0037 from Freddie. Talk about Allan's big
generators for the superstation, the generators used on the radio ship
and then locomotives. Reading of emails at 0055 and I can barely copy
the signal now. Lost the signal about 0102 and have no idea when the
program actually ended. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, Sept 20 at 1853 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS is OFF
again. Still off at 1705 UT check Sept 21. It had been on since August
26 after a long hiatus since at least May 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Sept 20 at 1853 UT check and Sept 21 at 1705, KSOK
Arkansas City KS still sounds much weaker than its usual 1 kW on
groundwave (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. A reply to my query, why isn`t 1590 KMIC flooded?

``Glenn, regarding KMIC: Although the transmitter site is near White
Oak Bayou in northwest Houston, that part of the metro area did not
get the same heavy rains as the eastern and southern parts. So the
water levels were up, but not enough to cause problems for KMIC.
Imelda was pretty much a non-event at my northwest Harris County QTH.

KMIC is listed as a U2 in WRTH and Radio-Locator also shows
non-directional daytime, so increased night coverage would indicate
they are not switching to the directional array.

KMIC is one of several sibling brokered time AM and FM stations in
greater Houston metro that runs Spanish language religion, sometimes
// depending on program bookings. Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas``

Stephen, glad you too are not flooded! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1680, Sept 21 at 0538 UT check, KRJO Monroe LA is back on
with rock music; had been AWOL the night before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANTARCTICA. Re 15476-CUSB, LRA36 special, Manuel Méndez, Lugo,
Spain, reports: ``Mail received from LRA 36. They say the special
program that will be on air tomorrow Saturday 1300-1415 UT, will be
repeated later in the evening: [sic] "hola Manuel como estas buenas
tarde este sabado 21 de septiembre vamos a trasmitir un programa
especial de onda corta con muchos saludos de radio aficionados del
mundo la hora es 13 a 1415 UT por onda corta, y lo vamos a retrasmir
por la tarde tambien."`` --- but no time specified for the replay
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 800, Sept 20 at 1111 UT, CKLW playing a clip from `The
Daily Show` about Trudeau`s brown-facing, W&M chat enjoying all the
attention Canada is getting as a result. KQCV OKC easily nulled (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13631, 13564, 13493, 13423, 13372 approx., Sept 20 at 1351,
RHC-FM service with F# tone out of 13700-AM. 13631 is S9+20, 13564 is
S9+10, 13493 is S5 vs CODAR; 13423 weak, and 13372 trace. As I then
move to the plus side at 1401 find 13700 has cut to dead air, and soon
off before I can find any more. Normally 13700 & FM galaxy stay on
another hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 760, Sept 20 at 1108 UT, `Hablando Claro` program or
segment with item about something that happened in Mexico 2+ years ago
on Sept 19, 2017; with WJR nulled. Of the four 760 Mexicans, most
likely XEABC, EdoMex, 70/10 kW with variety format, rather than
Chiapas or Jalisco, and surely not Sonora

Searching on that title and XEABC leads to a media directory at Radio
- Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México making such a connexion.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, Sept 20 at 1125, surprised to hear TOMBS morning
moanin` & groanin` hour, since WWCR-1 was supposed to stop The
Overcomer at 1100 and switch to 15825 with other programming (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re: why isn`t KMIC, 1590, address in Pasadena TX. flooded?
KMIC transmitter site is not around Pasadena = SE of Houston closer to
the coast, but NW of downtown Houston between Aldine and Spring Valley
and not far from White Oak Bayou, which is flood prone:

https://waterdata.usgs.gov/tx/nwis/uv?site_no=08074020

https://www.weatherforyou.com/reports/index.php?config=&place=houston&state=tx&forecast=riversobs&gauge=HGTT2
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1630 kHz, Sept 20 at 0256 UT, pop/disco music with very
heavy beat timed at 124/minute, surely not what KKGM Ft Worth would be
playing. 0257.5, KCJJ Iowa City ID and into ``CBS News on the Hour``
--- but 2.5 minutes BEFORE the hour!!

I thought KCJJ was a talk station, but NRC AM Log shows split format,
also AC. Per
https://www.1630kcjj.com/show/hit-music/
`Hit Music` plays from 9 pm to 5 am CDT [02-10 UT], even more on
Sundays. Some personalities elsewhen may be DJs rather than talkers,
unclear.

Was the early news an aberration? Check again ~3 hours later, this
time not until 0558.0 UT does it ID and run `CBS News on the Hour`
only 2 minutes early. Dirty little secret which apparently still
applies: some major network news ``on`` the hour is pre-recorded a few
minutes before for flexibility and to allow quick fixes if anything go
wrong. If a total disaster, they can always try again really live on
the hour. But you would think affiliates would not give this away by
airing it early, especially when it`s titled ``On The Hour``! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1680, Sept 20 at 0548 UT, NO signaL from KRJO Monroe LA,
music station which normally dominates; instead music and WPRR ID from
Ada MI northeast; nulling that should reveal KRJO from the southeast,
but nothing except some other very weak signal from one of the four
other more distant US 1680s. Still no KRJO at 1136 UT, just a fast SAH
from somethings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re my log of KDMT 1690 Denver market which still exists,
Paul Walker, Laramie, explains: ``Glenn, KDMT 1690 was one of the
Salem Media stations sold to Relevant radio. Closing in 60-90 days
after filing. So they could take over as early as mid October I think.
Paul`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 20 at

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.971, Sept 18 at 1811, JBA carrier measured from
LRA36, Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel, Base Esperanza. I
frequently seek this but first detexion in a long time.

Adrian Korol of RAE has notified me in Spanish that LRA36 will make a
special broadcast, Sat Sept 21 at 1300-1415 UT for the first day of
spring, and ahead of station`s 40th anniversary on Oct 20. Special
e-QSLs are offered for correct reports to lra36@hotmail.com Also
invites greetings, comments and suggestions to same address ahead of
the program to be read during it. He does not mention remote
receivers, so I guess those are acceptable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2000, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13566, 13632, 13768, weaker 13837 approx., Sept 18 at 1407,
RHC-FM blobs with F# tone, multiples of about 66-69 kHz out of RHC-AM
13700, but weaker than usual; and next order beyond circa 13500 &
13900 not detected. Recheck at 1447, the tone is still audible about
13769. So far that makes Sept 15, 16, and 18 in play; none on Sept 14,
17; and 19 when 13700 itself was AWOL at 1358. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2000, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Sept 18 at 1413, RHC is S9 but JBM, while 15230 with
more modulation is only S3. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15120, Sept 20 at 0004, S5-S7 of dead air, no doubt the CRI
Spanish relay as also on 5990 and even modulating. // 15120 was
scheduled in B-18, and has kept showing up in A-19 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 353 kHz, Sept 18 at 0648 UT, ND beacon LI, which is 400

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1999 monitoring: NOT confirmed, Wed

** U S A. 1590, Sept 19 at 0549 UT, Spanish music looping SSE, 0551
hymn ``El Señor es mi Pastor``. 0558 station address of ``15-90 AM``
in Pasadena, phone 713-586-13##, and tent. Radio Aleluya name, the
details correlating with KMIC, 5/5 kW U4. Supposedly beams into the
Gulf at night, but here we are oppositeward; swiveling the DX-398 on
my wrist-mount at 0559 also catch an ad from WCGO Evanston/Chicago,
which at night supposedly beams only to its northeast.

Why isn`t KMIC flooded? AM transmitter sites like swamps. Let`s see,
is the KMIC call a legacy of Radio Disney? Can we come up with a good
gospel slogan? Something better than ``Manantial Iesus Cristus``. This
DF is close but not the same as the due-south Spanish I previously had
from suspected KDAE Sinton/Corpus Christi. And certainly not KDAV
Lubbock to the SW, which Tim Hall thinx has also flipped to Spanish
based on an 806-AC phone number recorded by Paul Walker, WY (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1690, Sept 18 at 0553, ``KDMT, Denver`s Money Talk, 16-90

changing ownership and format, but can`t find it now (Glenn Hauser,

seemed to be repacked; but KSNW Wichita ``3`` apparently has not gone
to 15 yet where it will collide with KTBO OKC. Few other Bad DX

** CHINA. 9155, Sept 17 at 1329, Chinese VP from CNR1 jammer; none
audible in the 10s; 11460 & 11785 both JBA carriers at 1333; none in
the 12s or 13s; but 13855 is S3 in Chinese at 1351, CRI in Chinese
this hour only via Kashgar, East Turkistan, land of Uighur
brainwashing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Comparing the two RHC 19mb frequencies, Sept 16 at 2026:
15370 in Spanish song, not // 15140 in other music vamping. At 2030,
15140 goes into Portuguese but chops off at 2032.6* during This Day in
History; and 15370 continues, in choking Arabic. The foreign languages
don`t dare announce what times and frequencies they are on, since, you
never know when and where they will upshow. 15140 was supposed to stop
at 2030 after French, altho last check Sept 13 it was in Portuguese
before 2030.

Another check Sept 17 at 2008: 15140 OK in proper French; 15370 in
proper Portuguese but undermodulated with crackle on the modulation
and carrier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Sept 16 at 2024 tuning across MWV hour in
English, I hear two words: ``vomiting, diarrhea`` ---- and keep right
on tuning! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, Sept 16 at 2026, VOA French with pronounced
long/short path echo, off by 2030. Also detected Sept 17 at 2007.
Haven`t heard any like this in a long time, as propagation in general
is so degraded against anything coming the long way around.
Calculating the delay as I have no way of measuring it: Grimesland NC
is only 1860 km from here short path, so would be 38215 km long path,
using 40075 km as the equatorial circumference of Earth. At speed of
light, SP takes only 0.006 second to get here, while LP takes .1275
second, so .1215 is the difference or about one eighth of a second.
The azimuth toward Africa is 94 degrees, so the bulk of the 250 kW
signal is radiating very close to opposite of here where we are almost
due west. Normally we get only a fraxion off the back of the beam,
while the LP peters out long before reaching here from the west. For
this to happen of course, it also takes a frequency/band which will
propagate both day and night. And the closer the source, the longer
the LP echo delay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1999 monitoring: I missed it, but confirmed
by Mark Coady, Selwyn, Ontario, ODXA: ``7780, USA, WRMI at 0102 with
Glenn Hauser's “World of Radio” - Fair to Good at first but largely
lost to deep fading by 0111 Sept 17 – The bands pretty well died off
at this time with absolutely nothing from WRMI or any of the other
North American broadcasters and there were only a few weak
transmissions on the 80 meter ham band around 3755``.

Next we shall hear if WOR has really been canceled Wed at 2100 on WRMI
9955; last week it was replaced by `RFPI` in French, but the websked
still shows WOR. Also:

** U S A. 9455, Tue Sept 17 at 2125, S9/+10 of dead air, WRMI-8 must
not have turned off after scheduled APS Radio music at 1900-2100 M-F.
9395 & 9955 are modulating OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sept 17 at 2121, praise music in Spanish at S9/+10,
so KVOH is running overtime, supposed to close SW at 2100 Tue & Thu
per own sked revised Sept. 1;

It`s the OSOB & SSOB, not even Kuwait on 17550, unless that`t the JBA
carrier circa 17550.6 rather than something local (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1590, Sept 17 at 0632 UT I find a strong dominant signal
with promo for Dave Ramsey on ``Smart Talk 1590, WCGO and 95-9 FM``,
0634 UT back to C2CAM. WCGO CoL is Evanston but tries to attach itself
to Chicago as the name implies. It`s U2 10/2.5 kW, with night pattern
aimed only NE! So for it to inboom here to the SW, it`s got to be on
day pattern ND and maybe day power too. Recheck next night, Sept 18 at
0350 UT, plug a website with chicago in it, but not as dominant,
losing to some Spanish from the south, see UNID.

NRC AM Log gives WCGO slogan ``The Talker`` instead and no FM. Per
WTFDA FMDB, 95.9 is, you guessed it, a mere 250-watt translator,
W240EH in Evanston, ``Chicago`s Smart Talk``. At least 1590 still gets
top billing as heard. And would you believe there is *another* 95.9
translator licensed to Evanston, W240DE relaying WKTA-1330. It is
however, only 80 watts, located 7 minutes, 1 second further north; 10
minutes, 29 seconds further west (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1590, Sept 18 at 0351 UT, as I just remonitored WCGO
from the NE, Spanish music upfades, romantic, then tropical. I get a
pretty sharp DF as due south/north, which per NRC AM Log points to
KDAE Sinton TX (Corpus Christi), Radio Aleluya, U4 1000/500 with
virtually no signal to the north. Other SS in TX is KMIC Houston, U2
5000/5000, Radio Libertad, at night Gulfward. Both listed as
Spanish/Religious. Of course, fade down if there were any ToH ID, then
back up while WCGO is in network news in English. One more
possibility, XEVOZ in CDMX, which is somewhat west of south, but 20/10
kW with POP E/S format per IRCA Mexican Log. The only Mexican left on
1590. Fred Cantú`s final 2015y roster still had four (Glenn Hauser,
