Logs
Yes, subject line on last report alleged it was still 2017, rest OK?

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, Jan 15 at 1929, WRMI S9+20 playing that neat Greek tune which is a well-worn part of the World Music default loop, i.e. for the second week, still no relay of RAE in German as now scheduled. Well, at least at 1945 any disappointed Germans are able to hear that jaunty beer-hall song in German. By 1958 the Qur`an ``song`` with reverb is playing from World Music, and it runs right thru hourtop past 2002, as RAE Italian is also AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 5040, Jan 16 at 0027, S9+35, RHC almost open carrier with some crackles, which seem like talk modulation spike peaks trying to break thru, but // 9720 is S9+15 in undermodulated music at the moment. Wiggle that patchcord! Same at 0041, when 9720 is in soft-spoken Valverde talk. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Meanwhile 5025 Rebelde exhibits OK modulation to the contrary. 9720 also has some CCCCCCI, i.e. CNR2 as scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Jan 15 at 1929, WRMI clear with prÃlude of IS and Biermann IDs prior to programming ``resuming at the top of the hour``, 1930 into Radio Herwa International, music and talk, but rather distorted. Apparently from their audio file rather than a transmitter problem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, Jan 15 at 1955 UT, WBBZ Ponca City VG by groundwave but dead air during Rush Limbaugh; within a minute, a casino ad fires; followed by a PSA (while 740 KRMG has Rush himself endorsing algo); 1958 UT ``News Talk 1230, WBBZ``, more dead air, 1959 UT local ad, 2000 UT CBS News (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 17800, Jan 15 at 1932, African drumming and chanting, 1933 announcement; Fulani as sked this semihour from AWR, 250 kW due northwest from Meyerton, S9 making it the SSOB by far, above the only other signal on band, 17775-, KVOH at S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15390, Jan 15 at 1937, REE distorted as usual // 15500 which is weaker but not distorted. I have to wonder about occasional logs of 15390 not mentioning any distortion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN. 9625, Jan 15 at 2250, fair signal of open carrier, from what? CBC NQ reactivated? Ha2. I keep listening and finally at 2300 timesignal several seconds late, ID for RTI and opening 2-hour Thai broadcast. Aoki shows 100 kW, 225 degrees from Paochung; backward would be 45 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 7445, Jan 15 at 1947, very poor algo with yelling, then calmer talk, maybe a sporting report from BBCWS as sked 1600-2000, 250 kW due northwest from Talata-Volonondry, MADAGASCAR; and per Aoki/NDXC *jammed by the ChiCom way off from the azimuth and target area, but no jamming audible here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1912 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue Jan 16 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, S9+40, but somewhat distorted, not enough to tune out. Distortion also applied to Rudy ID before 0030, and to `Wavescan` before then, so this time I think WRMI transmitter has a problem.

WOR 1912 almost confirmed UT Tue Jan 16 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9329.96v-CUSB, JBA carrier not enough to be sure it`s I. Next:

Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1913?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1913?]
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW [or #1913?]
Wed 1030 WRMI 9455 to NW [or #1913?]

Full updated WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, fair Jan 15 at 2302, I find Allan Weiner now on WRMI --- the current `Viva Miami` has him as guest, virtually a monolog of Planet promotion, but Jeff interjects a few questions. Seems to be in person, as AW is visiting Okeechobee, maybe to round up some spare parts to repair his transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also ARGENTINA [non]; NIGERIA [non]; WOR Monitoring

** U S A. 3215, Tue Jan 16 at 0021 and 0042 chex, no signal from WWRB when it used to be on UT Sun-Mon-Tue. Besides turning off 9370 & 3185 to be rid of Brother Scare, seems the other transmitter is also silent, 3215 before WWCR comes on there at 0200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 7305, Jan 16 at 0144, S9+30 open carrier from IBB Greenville becomes at 0145 the Vatican theme once, and opening Spanish, but I don`t catch exactly how it IDs, into papal news preview; so VR is still being relayed, violating Separation of Church and State, altho missing for a couple nights, feed input problem? However, at 0218 recheck it`s off, so maybe phasing out, shortened from the previous half-sesquihour until 0230? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Jan 16 at 0147, S9+20 including noise level, amounts to insufficient signal from VOV relay via WHRI --- except I am hearing rock music, probably praise, with VOV Spanish feed lost again. After a few years of this arrangement, you`d think all parties would have their act together, including backup routing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZIMBABWE [non]. 15580, Jan 15 at 1934, announcement in language says ``VOA Shona`` and times 6 am, 2 pm, 7 pm (but now it`s 9:34 pm), 1935 into news in English about Zimbabwe, status of foreign currency, etc. Aoki shows at 1930-2000 this VOA via Botswana is for ``Learning English``, while merely English before and after, not the Zimbabwe/Shona service per se, which is on 15460 and 13860, via SÃo Tomà and 4930 Botswana on a complicated earlier schedule mixed with Ndebele and English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Jan 16 at 0046 UT, normal sounding talk; ECSS helps a little, but not enough to be sure it`s in English; also a SAH. Besides the Spanish-screaming RLQT pirate in Louisiana, there`s also a new TIS station at Bandelier National Monument near Los Ãlamos NM, discovered by Tim Hall from his NV/UT Border Inn recordings. To be sought further (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4920, Jan 16 at 0029, het of rapidly varying pitch, I think meaning that Chennai and/or Lhasa employ an unstable transmitter. It`s AIR which was acting up lately with a buzz, supposedly repaired (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5900-, Jan 16 at 0018, JBA carrier, a smidgin on the low side perhaps. Claudio Galaz, Chile, forwarded news that Chilean pirate Radio CompaÃÃa Worldwide would be testing some new frequencies, one at a time, including 5899.55 last night until 0335, so I am checking this as well as 6925, 6155 and 6092. At 0033 recheck no signal here. As Chris Smolinski points out, however, 5900 is already occupied at 0000-0030 by IBRA radio in Bengali via Uzbekistan. I was also checking for more S American pirates Chris tipped about 6935 and 8000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** AUSTRALIA. 5045 & 5055, Jan 15 at 1354, JBA carriers presumably from Ozy Radio and 4KZ. Hours for these are quite flexible; concerning yesterday, Ron Howard in California reported:

``Jan 14 - Seems that Al Kirton (general manager of Radio 4KZ) has started some type of an abbreviated schedule. Today heard at 1136, but clearly off the air at 1307 check. Yes, 4KZ is in fact on a new schedule. This per Al, on Jan 14 (2320 UT): "We are running from 7 am to 10 pm Queensland time. Thatâs 2100 to 1200 GMT I think. We are happy to extend hours if there is a call for it. Cheers, Al" So 5055 kHz is currently on from 2100 to 1200 UT. Ron`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. (9955, 11530), Jan 15 at 0520 check, the main WRMI webcast labeled RAE, after 9955 is off with no BS to fill it, is again carrying R. Biafra during this semihour, music, then YL in Igbo with schedule announcement, numbers in English, mentioning 7240 (via France) and ``1153``, stumbling over 11530, ex-frequency via WRMI. Probably webcast every night at this time, but no longer on any WRMI SW frequency. Maybe feed to France? Is that still on air? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 14625, 14690, 14755, 14830, 14895, 14960, 15030, 15095, 15165, 15235, 15305, 15438, VERY approx., Jan 15 at 1427-1432, blobs from RHC 15370 at 65-70 kHz intervals. This time I am tuning 5-kHz steps in the FM mode, listening for the same-pitch whine which all of them emit, the lowest being 14625 which is of the eleventh order! Fortunately they miss CHU. Hardly any on the plus side of 15370; normally there are a few but always more on the minus side. Only the closer ones provide readable modulation, 15032 and up, clearly on 15305. Something`s always (VERY!) wrong at RHC. 15370 and its constellation are all gone by 1554 check, while separate weaker fundamental 15230 remains on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Jan 15 at 1353, no signal today from SIBC. About yesterday when I had it at 1446, Ron Howard replied on the DXLD yg, `` Hi Glenn, Jan 14 - Today with modulation problems! Noted 1154 with decent level carrier, but no trace of any audio; random checking up till 1326 found the same; 1334-1418 noted with audio, playing mostly Pacific Islands pop songs, along with a few hit songs in English; believe was not the Wantok FM relay, as clearly there were no frequent IDs, plus the fact it was Sunday and in the past Wantok FM normally would play mostly religious songs; so I conclude this was SIBC's own programming running well past their normal 1200* sign off; checked again at 1525 and found the audio was again totally silent, but with a decent level carrier still on. As you indicate - strange behavior in light of their budget concerns. Ron`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13354-USB, Jan 15 at 1450, New York ATC YL contacting numerous TA flights, referring to secondary/backup 11396, and for some referring to Santa Maria (AÃores) frequencies. ``Sel-call coming up``, she says to many of them, then two tones. I assume the exact pitches of these tones denote each particular aircraft/flight. Are they not permanently in effect, reassigned on the fly? Still no New York Radio VOLMET on 13270-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, Jan 15 at 1438, 1.8-milliwatt K6FRC HIFER beacon in California is JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1912 monitoring: confirmed, JBA, UT Monday January 15 after 0030 on WBCQ, 9329.973-CUSB. Confirmed, UT Mon Jan 15 from 0403 on Area 15 webcast, and presumably at 0413 on WBCQ 5129.82 JBA carrier. Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 15 at 0430 on WRMI 9955 and 9455, both good. 9455 to WNW now duplicates 9955 to SSE at 0430-0500 among certain other slots. Next:
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1913?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1913?]
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 9455 to NW [or #1913?]

** U S A. 17774.891v, Jan 15 at 1550, KVOH up from usual 17774.888, S7-S9 poor signal, but much better than JBA carrier sometimes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Jan 15 at 1349, WEWN, Radio CatÃlica Mundial with dead air except for rustling, coughing, during live morning mass in English, while the only axion is visual, not good for radio; finally says something in English, interrupted by voice-over in Spanish, but it`s *not* a translation of what was just said; out of synch, automated, or not paying attention, own agenda for order of the mass? Soon switches to studio Spanish only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 7305, Jan 15 at 0157, no signal from Greenville B, which had been relaying VR in Spanish at 0145-0230 (and carrier on as early as 0130, which is all I heard last night). So have VR via IBB relays been canceled? What about 1230-1300 on 9610 via GB?

There were also more via Philippines, etc., and considerable exchange relays of VOA via SMG site, which is allegedly being closed down. At least this will finally get the USG out of violating Separation of Church and State, altho obviously not the reason and of no concern to the ptb when initiating such a deal in the first place (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
