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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Logs
** ANGUILLA. 6090, July 22 at 0615, shux, DGS and Caribbean Beacon are back on with good modulation, explaining exactly what a beacon is --- wait, no, it`s Deacon; hmm, why not call it Caribbean Deacon??

11775, July 22 at 1701 check, CB is off again from daytime frequency.

6090, July 23 at 0045, CB is on again in music break, good modulation at S9+20 // 5935 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 7730, UT Saturday July 22 at 0621 via WRMI, RAE Argentina al Mundo (not sure how you say that in transliterated Japanese) finishes a tango, and Japanese YL introduces ``DX`` show starting with a log from Manuel MÃndez in Spain of KNLS. I suppose identical info is in the original Spanish version, translated to all the other languages (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, July 23 at 0043, surprised to find RHC in French here, instead of scheduled Spanish from 0000; // 5040 where French is only supposed to be. Both Bauta per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sunday July 23 at 0032 and further chex following hour, only a JBA carrier! Presumed The Mighty KBC via GERMANY. Yet Greece is good S9 on 9935, and better on 9420. Can a slightly more northerly path account for this disparity? WWV reported:

``Solar-terrestrial indices for 22 July follow.
Solar flux 70 and estimated planetary A-index 16.
The estimated planetary K-index at 0000 UTC on 23 July was 3.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred.``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, July 23 at 0120, rock song at S9, 0123 announcements but can`t copy due to high storm noise level. 0132 a jingle and ID with reverb as Radio Interlochen -- as in Michigan; or is it Interlaken, as in Switzerland? Neither: that`s what I am disposed to hear as a classical music aficionado, but godforbid any SW pirate should ever play any of that!!! Numerous logs here
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,36288.0.html
spell it as Radio Enterhaken --- which I guess is a known pirate of yore, but has anyone really seen it in print? Rafman cites announced e-mail address as enterhaken@gmx.net so that would clinch it, but did they spell it out? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, July 23 at 0152, another pirate with wild music while 6955 is still on. It`s unID for even more numerous loggers
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,36293.0.html
despite a number of SSTV captures showing PEE WEE under the slogan ``I do whatever my Rice Krispies tell me to do`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925, July 23 at 0153, JBA AM carrier slightly on lo side. No matches for this on HFU, tho earlier there was an unID on 6925.1. This hour I have been mainly attentive to CNN`s `Declassified` about Russian spies caught in the US, illustrated with a DX-440 SW radio just like mine (out of service); for real, or re-enactment? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Saturday July 22 at 1704, no signal from REE`s North American frequency which is supposed to start at 1400, mostly for silly ballgames. Propagation is sufficient, since very poor REE signals are audible on 17715 and 15520 for elsewhere. At 2133, still no 17855, while 17715 is fair, 15520 good and 15390 very poor. Ivo Ivanov often notes one of the four is missing, but you never know which one it will be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1887 monitoring: confirmed Friday July 21 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.12v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed Saturday July 22 at 2235 the 2230 on WBCQ 9330.32v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed Sat July 22 at 2300 on WRMI, 11580, fair; also confirmed UT Sunday July 23 at 0220 the 0200 on WRMI, 11580, very poor by now. Also confirmed me talking but no possible details, UT Sunday July 23 at 0323 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Missouri. Lots of lightning noise from west TX, NM, OK panhandle, closing in on OK proper. Next:
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW, 15770 to NE
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455 to WNW
Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, UT Sat July 22 at 0558, WRMIs with VOA news relay at inopportune time during Oldies channel, cut off at 0559:30 for ID, and 0600:00 immediately into `Your Weekend Show`. I listen for the first few minutes as Bob Biermann explains that he has left Florida and WRMI to take up a full-time position as the third pastor at a church in Sky Valley, Georgia. He loves being in the cool mountains, but remains fond of FL.

(This place is in the extreme NE corner of GA, population 250 and originally a ski resort, but not enough snow so now it`s a summer resort. Elevation is 1 km, which hardly qualifies as mountainous in the real West. The mountain it`s next to is Rabun Bald, peaking at 1431 m, which is like ground level in Santa Rosa NM; yet is the second-highest ``mountain`` in Georgia.)

Says he had been in semi-retirement in Jensen Beach FL, when he ``got the call`` to go back to ministering full-time. WRMI staff list at
http://wrmi.net/index.php/about/our-staff
still shows him as ``Bob Biermann - Transmitter and Studio Engineer``. Of course he was involved in getting the WRMI Oldies channel going, but it`s so automated he hardly needs to be there, nor does he of course, in order to continue with `YWS` if he wishes. His low-key style of preaching is appreciated, only in stark contrast to all the screaming gospel huxters elsewhere on SW and WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, July 22 at 0618, WTWW-1 is AWOL, and no trace on daytime frequency 9475 either; nor on 5085 WTWW-3. Further chex July 22 at 1706: still missing from 9475, 9930, and of course 12105. 1817 recheck in case still on night frequencies: but no traces either on 5830 or 5085 which might be detectable midday at 1 megameter. (A while ago, I heard Ted admit that sometimes he sleeps late, which explains anomalies in WTWW transmission? If his human intervention is required a few times a day for manual frequency changes, transmitters on/off).

Anyhow, no `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` this Saturday afternoon at 1800+ on 9930; no 9930 at all. By 2122 recheck, only 9475 is back on with suptorted SFAW. By 0044 UT Sunday July 23, 5085 has come on with rock music at S9+30, and TOITO is going by 0102 (Glen Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9370 & 3185, July 23 at 0028, both BS frequencies from WWRB are missing, maybe in the middle of a QSY, but which nominally occurs in the following hour. 5050, however is on with hateful gospel huxters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
