** CHINA. 11540, July 14 at 1318, CNR1 jammer, as almost always. Vs
RFA Tibetan via Kuwait

12190, July 14 at 1319, CNR1 jammer at S5-S9. Vs Sound of Hope

12820, July 14 at 1320, CNR1 jammer at S5-S9. Vs Sound of Hope

13640, July 14 at 1321, CNR1 jammer at S4-S8. Vs Sound of Hope

14640, July 14 at 1342, JBA music, probably CNR1 jammer vs SOH

14900, July 14 at 1343, JBA music, Chinese talk, CNR1 jammer vs SOH
relaying RFA; all per Aoki/NDXC.

11785, July 14 at 1323, CNR1 jammer, but mixed with Firedragon, as I
was using this one to check // with the others. Vs VOA Chinese via
Philippines (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15120, July 14 at 0052, CRI Spanish relay is S9+10, much
stronger than // 5990, but 15120 is JBM, at least not crackling today.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, 9535, 9570, 9640, 15230, July 14 at 1315, all these
RHC/CRI frequencies are missing; while RHC is still running on 11760,
13700, 13740, 15140. Something`s always wrong at RHC/RadioCuba ---
maybe correlates with one of the transmitter sites offline. Quite a
different selexion from 24 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 17560, July 14 at 1345, `Auld Lang Syne` and
announcement in French, i.e. CRI via Kashgar where Uighurs are being
brainwashed. Strongest signal on band amid very few others (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, July 14 at 0035, pirate music, torchsong,
S9+20 but about = the high local noise level; in sporadic chex, no ID
caught, still 0100+. These say Wolverine Radio, keyword ``nothing``

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6879-USB, July 14 at 0037, piratemusic on odd
frequency, slightly weaker S9 than 6950, and thus even worse vs noise
level. These reports say Mix Radio International, earlier on 6876,
6877, 6878:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,55969.0.html

At 0057 I find it has shifted to 6881-USB, but stops without
announcement at 0100:25*; more reports including when on 6881:

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, WBFM, July 13 at 1902 UT, K202BY, Enid Family Radio
satellator which has been open carrier for months (altho it got an STA
to be ``off the air``), is now really totally off the air; in fact
first noticed a couple days ago. Thus opens up a good Es FM DX
channel, if the MUF will ever get up there! There are weak marginal
signals from KOSR Stillwater, the local low-power fill-in when major
KOSU 91.7 moved much closer to OKC; and some gospel huxter which I am
concentrating on IDing. It fades way up and down but tropospherically
over unstable hot path, rather than ionospherically. Bible reading is
in progress, finally outro 1910 as Psalms 81-87, to be resumed
tomorrow at 88 (only 10 minutes a day??), on ``Bible Broadcasting
Network``, and into hymnstring. That clinches it as the station I
suspected, next nearest from Wichita KS, KYFW, 17/17 kW, only 43m
height, and with BBN as in WTFDA database.

89.1, Oasis Enid translator is still blocking a much more desirable
Wichitan, KMUW public radio. 92.1, KAMG-LP Enid is still on with dead
air after one day of modulation in May to prove it wasn`t totally
dead. 88.3 free of K202BY also facilitates using 88.3 as RF feeder
frequency for SW radio in the car or even home (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 407 kHz, July 14 at 0545, ND beacon HRU, which is 25 watts
from Herington KS. Noise level has lowered enough to get a bit;
nearest lightning areas are in NM and off the LA coast. Also have
Okies 255, SW, 25 watts Stillwater, tuned to 253; and even 341, EI, 25
watts Enid. Once I can hear again any Y-beacon from Canada, I`ll know
we`re back in season (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1990 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
July 13 at 2100 on WRMI, 9955, fair S6-S8.

Also confirmed UT Sunday July 14 at 0130 on WRMI, 5850, good. As
sunset earlies, expect this one gradually to improve westward.

Also confirmed UT Sunday July 14 at 0342 midpoint via WA0RCR, 1860-AM,
MO, S9 to +10 vs high local noise level of S9; so started circa 0328,
must have been right after I first checked, hearing another.

None of the three Hamburger LokalRXadio airings confirmed yet. Next:

2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780

** U S A. 9330.00, July 14 at 0343 tune-in, WBCQ-6 in S9+20/30 dead
air, then hits WLC IS loop but brief cutoff at 0344:42. Must be having
problems rather than apocalypting at this hourpart. By 0600 recheck
only a JBA carrier, propagation dropout? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, UT Sun July 14 at 0041, WRMI-10 playing ME music, from
the World Music stash? Not what one would expect during ``Buscando la
Verdad`` scheduled now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, July 14 at 0555, WEWN with S9 of Spanish dead air
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, July 14 at 0459 UT, quick check immediately finds
mention of Traverse City, as WJNL 50 kW daytimer continues cheating
since at least June 24. QRM from more than one station KGYN, maybe
WPHT and/or KUBR; predominant SAH count now is 138/minute = 2.3 Hz
rather than 3+ Hz with KGYN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
