** ANTARCTICA. 15476-, Thu July 4 at 1416, JJBBA carrier slightly on
the low side, signature of LRA36 on the air; as confirmed by Manuel
Méndez, Spain, later, extremely weak around 1900. I cannot detect it
at 1915 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 7730, July 4 at 1248, VP in Chinese; and a JBA carrier on
7570. Better known as WRMI frequencies, but now surely CNR1 jammers.

WRMI 7570 is apparently still off the air like it was last night,
instead of with SMTV as scheduled 11-14 UT. However, CNR1 jamming
would not be expected until 1300 VOA Mandarin hour via Thailand
start.

7730 is a Sound of Hope, Taiwan frequency 23 hours a day and thus
subject to continuous jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, July 4 at 0132, RHC English in mailbag, suptorted; //
6165 is on now JBM but less suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11670, July 4 at 0138, RHC Spanish is JBM, much softer than
// 11700, 11760, 11850 --- it`s more like the JBA spurs on 11840 &
11860. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9535, July 4 at 0541, RHC Spanish is still running
now colliding with Algeria in Arabic via FRANCE, which is on 9535 at
05-06 only, expecting it to be clear! Sometimes RHC past 0500 on 9535
has switched to English feed, not this time. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, July 4 at 0135, music from XEPPM, back on the air
after about a week out of air, S9+10/20 but that includes the high
local line noise level. Manuel Méndez, Spain, reported it earlier, and
Ron Howard too, who forwards this: ``from Facebook (WRTH), from Luis
Alejandro Vallebueno: "Radio Educación XEEP, 6185 kHz has been
reactivated today [July 2] at 18:00 GMT with 1.5 kW. Information via
Julián Santiago Díez de Bonilla and Pilar Cruz"``. Original rated
power as in WRTH 2019 was 10 kW. We used to hear directly from JSDB
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1989, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 11769.9, July 4 at 1923, S5-S7 carrier, no doubt VON maybe
still in English but can`t hear any (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 11980, July 4 at 0545, ME music, VP S5-S7. HFCC shows it`s
VOT Turkish at 04-06, 500 kW at 310 degrees toward W Europe and also
USward. In previous years this transmission was listenable here for
the music, but not with solar flux below 70 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1988 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday July 3 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, and finally *not* upcut,
automation back in alignment after IS & ID loop, S7 vs S6 noise level
when tuned to next vacant frequency. However, *no* signal, not even a
carrier audible from simulcast on WBCQ 7490+v, and despite HNL,
generally VP summer reception, think that transmitter is not on air.
However2, WOR confirmed on webcast check at 2128, again followed by
the variable-key singing of the late Goddess Irina I at 2130.

WOR 1988 also confirmed UT Thu July 4 at 0116 the 0100 on WRMI 7780,
JBA vs S9+10 local noise level, seems from nearby powerline; worst on
the lower SW bands and also peaking amid the MW band around 1200 kHz.

** U S A. 9330.00, July 3 at 2100, WBCQ-6 is on at S9+25, opening
another `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback from when it was ``live`` on
7490 and 5130, sometime last year when Angela was just a girlfriend,
`half-nekkid`, as it was 85 degrees (in Fla) and they were just back
from a Caribbean cruise – I remember hearing that the first time.
Meanwhile, cannot detect any signal at all on 7490+v when World of
Radio should be airing.

9330.00, UT Thu July 4 at next check 0117, a very mean-sounding talk
host must be Hal Turner as scheduled weekly, 01-03 on WBCQ 7490+v, and
which frequency is still undetectable here; confirmed as such by same
thing // if not synchronized on 9455 WRMI, which activates this
frequency only on Wednesday night for Turner, flanked by an hour
before and after of BS.

9330.00, UT Thu July 4 at 0330, VORW gets a chance on WBCQ-6 500 kW,
John in a mailbag acknowledging first-name-only reports mostly of 9395
(WRMI). May not know he`s on 9330 right now; then music requests
3-in-a-row. Don`t expect anything but World`s Last Chance ministry on
9330 starting July 8 unless that target date slip again (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7570, July 4 at 0125, this WRMI is unusually off the air
while 7730, 7780 are still going; and 9455 with Hal Turner // 9330
WBCQ but not 7490 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, July 4 at 0124, WRNO is on again with gospel music at
S9/+10. Strangely with regular fading about once per second, like a
subaudible het --- in this case I can`t imagine from what, as HFCC
shows nothing else scheduled now; Goa and Dushanbe are on 7505 at
other dayparts. Self-imposed transmitter problem? 0327 recheck now
WRNO in Chinese, so still some `Grace for Today` even if not all-night
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1989, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, Wed July 3 at 2105, WWCR gets sporadic E boost to
S9+5, nice flamenco classical guitar music, ``olé`` and 2106 starting
``Luz para las Rosas`` by the ``ministerio Hermana Rosa de Hierro``
(Sister Iron Rose), what a name. Perhaps that is a subset of what`s on
the program sked Wed at 2100-2130 on WWCR-1: `La Voz Alegre` with Rex
Morgan. That would be same as the Spanish service from Madagascar
World Voice, which axually originates in nearby Franklin TN (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Wed July 4 at 0325, WTWW-2 is off, no rock DJ
tonight, altho 5830 WTWW-1 remains on with undermodulated SFAW. Next
check at 0535, 5085 still off and could easily overcome the S9+10 line
noise level if it were on; while 5830 is S9+20/30 of dead air. So no
Pete Santilli far-right talk show tonight on 5085. Altho he said he
was on 3 hours a night UT Tue-Sat, he might be on SW only two nights a
week, as I heard UT Tue & Wed on WTWW.

5085, next2 check, UT Fri July 5 at 0105, plug for a ``pray for me``
circle at WTWW, 0107 a Ted ham ad, 0108 hymn, so no more rock DJ even
when on? No, 0119 Ted intro Motown music; at 0200 ``Greatest Hits of
All Time``, Ted`s night to DJ, 0203 Herman`s Hermits. Modulation now
is annoyingly distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, July 4 at 1921, again today, WTWW-1 stays on night
frequency all day – S9 but high noise level, at first seems dead air,
then JBM; nothing on 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9470, July 4 at 1256, ``Salve Regina`` from WEWN
but also a fast SAH from something in Chinese. Altho WEWN targets the
FE in English about to close at 1300, 9470 is a very busy frequency,
with CNR1 jamming RTI at 12-13. I`ll bet no one hears EWTN over there
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10550, July 4 at 1259-1300+, S2-S4 carrier open except
for some clix about once per second; what? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11825, July 4 at 1305, open carrier/dead air. Maybe VOA
Mandarin via Thailand not turned off at 1300 or CNR1 jamming of same.
If it were off-frequency 11825.5, per EiBi at 1300-1330 it would be
FEBC Hong Kong via Bocaue, Philippines in the KHA dialect of Tibetan.
This signal much stronger than the CNR1 jammer still running on 11785
vs VOA Philippines (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
