** CUBA. 7380, April 10 at 2200, new frequency for African service,
RHC opening in French, S9/+20. 2250 check still in Kriyol instead of
Portuguese from 2230; 2310 check in English, so that`s now at 23-24 on
7380 // 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, April 10 at 1926, RHC OC prior to 1930 broadcast, but
with spurious hash peaks approx. plus/minus 3 kHz, even with no
modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, April 11 at 0321, NO signal from R. Progreso, just some
CODAR swishing. Richard Langley, NB, agrees, who first noted RP absent
the night before during its entire 0030-0400 span. 5025 Rebelde is
still on and nominal. What`s with RP? Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.239, April 11 at 1327, RHC way off-frequency from
13740. As soon as I found new 13740 ex-13780 on April 7, I figured
same transmitter would eventually also get knocked off-frequency about
0.76 kHz below, and now it has been! Last measured March 25 on
13779.24. Considerably weaker than // 13700. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTEING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, April 11 at 1411, RHC is S9+10 but just barely
modulated; // 15140 better but still undermodulated. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 9435 // 11710, April 11 at 1317, VOK with
insufferable propaganda in stilted English accompanied by self-jamming
noise bleeding from adjacent transmitters. Almost identical signals,
S9+10 and S9 respectively. Have not heard these in some time, and
suspect one or both transmitters have been down; 13-14 is the prime
broadcast for North America, with a repeat on same at 15-16.

At least NK has the right idea about scheduling, while SK`s KBS World
Radio`s so-called N American service in English also at 13-14 UT
remains on 15575, inaudible almost yearound. At 1321 check I can
almost imagine a JBA carrier on 15575! If KBS put the same transmitter
on a clear 9 or 11 MHz frequency, it could be heard. In fact, 13-14
English is on // 9570, but 205 degrees and totally blocked here by
Habana relaying China (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1600, April 10 at 1933 UT, searching for some rare music
on the AM band, ``1600, The Cush, and 1600kush.com``, i.e. KUSH in oil
terminal Cushing OK, east of Stillwater. Cush is pronounced like in
cushion; then C&W or nostalgia, or ``Americana``.

[and non] This reminds me to enumerate the few stations around here on
daytime/groundwave listenable primarily with music, not including
foreign language, gospel huxters: 780 KSPI, 860 KKOW, 900 KSGL (split
with gospel huxters mornings), 1070v KFTI, 1280 KSOK, 1600 KUSH.
Everything else is talk or sportstalk (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Wed Apr 10 at 2201, REE thrice-weekly English already
amid interview with an author instead of a musician! About Nazi
concentration camps; OK, Justin, but how about some material
explicitly about SPAIN??? Even news? Interviewing some foreigner you
can catch visiting Madrid is a cop-out (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 9390, April 11 at 1316, English announcement introducing
Mandarin, S8-S4 with flutter. R. Thailand is back here for all
languages 1200-1430, beam changes between each from Udorn, including
the two English aimed 132 degrees at 1230-1300 & 1400-1430. Too bad
the English is not on 30 degrees USward like Mandarin now.

Other HSK9 English: 0000-0100 & 0200-0230 15590 to North America but
inaudible here until maybe midsummer?; 0530-0600 17640; 1900-2000 &
2030-2045 9920 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 10 at 2200, NO signal from VOT English to North
America, no RTTY either. Still nothing at 2209, but did not get around
to checking later in hour whether it ever came up. TRT'de her zaman
yanlış olan bir şeyler var.

In A-19 schedule, following frequencies are on earlier, probably one
of them prolonged, failing to QSY to 9830:
9460, 1600-2100 Turkish (someone already noted it on past 2100)
9620, 2030-2130 English
9635, 1930-2030 French
11615, 1930-2030 French
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1976 monitoring: NOT confirmed
Wednesday April 10 at 2100 on WRMI 9955 --- off the air past 2108+, as
I sometimes have to remark ``such are the risks of being the first
program in a transmission block`` (meanwhile 9395 WRMI is OK with RAE
Italian). However, WOR confirmed on WRMI webcast, and by recheck 2127,
9955 is on at S9-S6. Simultaneous 7490.17v WBCQ with WOR from 2100 is
JBA even with ECSS at 2105, a situation which is only going to worsen
as summer oncomes; also confirmed on webcast.

NOT confirmed, UT Thursday April 11 at 0000 on WRMI 7730, replaced by
Bible reading in Spanish. This is the fourth former WOR airing on WRMI
which has been canceled in the past 3 days! Quite a shakeup.

Whew, still confirmed UT Thursday April 11 at 0100 on WRMI 7780,
S9/S9+10. Next:
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
0130 UT Saturday WRMI 7780 [new; or 1977?]

** U S A. 7505v, April 11 at 0601, NO signal again tonight from WRNO
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15115-15120-15125, April 11 at 1412, cannot detect any
hybrid DRM from WINB; by 1431 now I can hear some weak tones on the
lower half, while any DRM noise on the upper half is indistinguishable
from band noise level. Maybe this works better toward Europe? 19m
propagation to here is pitiful except from Cuba. Presumably during
Unique Radio, Australia, program as now scheduled Wed/Thu/Fri 14-15

** CUBA. 9720, April 9 at 2112, NO signal from RHC, despite new sked
dated April 7 via Wolfgang Bueschel claiming English to Africa is now
here at 21-22. I quickly scan the 9, 11, 13 and even 15 MHz bands for
a replacement, including last year`s frequency 11880 --- zilch. I do
the same during the following two hours when 9720 continues absent, at
2245 and 2314, the latter when English continues on 5040.

I could not imagine RHC would be using 7 MHz band for this, so
unchecked, but Dave Kenny, UK found 7380! as new English-to-Africa
frequency, at 23-24, preceded 22-23 by French and Kriyol (instead of
Portuguese). Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11980, April 9 at 2315, CRI English relay at S9/S9+10. This
could easily be taken as a fundamental, but it`s really second
harmonic of 5990 which is only slightly stronger, S9+10/20; and
axually sounds better on 11980. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENINIG DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, UT Wed April 10 at 0033-0043, RHC English is S9+10/20
but just barely modulated, while // 6165 is undermodulated but
sufficient, during `DXers Unlimited` which Arnie introduces as the
``weekend edition``, so wrong show played? Some ham topic I zone out
from his mumbled presentation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, April 10 at 0101 I happen to catch tail of Spanish
frequency announcement claiming 5040 start at 0200 --- but here we
are! And 11760 to stop at 0300. Also plugs now 4 FM frequencies 24h
covering fraxions of Cuba. But all in Spanish? No, English also claims
to be on them, but what is the breakdown also with other languages?
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 9630, April 10 at 0612, RNZI is VG, but ~0.5
kHz het also audible from high side, i.e. R. Aparecida, Brasil (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 5980, April 10 at 1433, two VP signals a few
Hz apart beating, i.e. RNZI vs Shiokaze. The latter seems to go off
about 1435 as scheduled, but RNZI signal is still unstable, Doppler
fading? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 11680, April 9 at 1804, VP S4-S6 news in French; 1820 think I
hear RFI mentioned, but it`s really BBCWS per HFCC, 1800-1830, 300 kW,
152 degrees from Woofferton (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1976 monitoring: NOT confirmed Tuesday April
9 at 2055 the 2030 on WRMI 7780, which had been reliable for many
months; instead, sounds like synthetic Bible readings, but not //
TOMBS 9330v etc. WRMI websked still shows WOR, so a mistake or
permanent change?

WOR also NOT confirmed Wednesday April 10 at 1030 on WRMI 5950, as I
happen to awaken; instead: SMTV! See WRMI item below for expanded SMTV
sked. Next WORs unless further WRMI changes:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v
0000 UT Thursday WRMI 7730
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
0130 UT Saturday WRMI 7780 [new; or 1977?]

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4980, April 10 at 0058, WRMI with Supreme Master TV, 0059.5
Zanotti ID and off, extended an hour. Also more SMTV April 10 at 1033
instead of WORLD OF RADIO on Wednesday. The WRMI frequency grid
websked has now been updated as of April 7 for 24 hours of SMTV, one
frequency at a time, presumably 7 dpw, thus blowing away that WOR and
all other programming in these blox, mainly Systems D and F:

01-03 5950, 03-04 9395, 04-08 5950, 08-10 9395, 10-11 5950,
11-14 7570, 14-20 15770, 20-21 9395, 21-01 4980.

But the program skedgrids below that have not been updated to
correspond! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5010, UT Wed April 10 at 0100, WRMI in English with Bible
readings; frequency grid shows extension 0100-0130 Tue-Sat on System
H, but the System H program grid does not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

At least the dates within it were correct - sigh

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.960, April 9 at 1401-1404+, JJBBA carrier, no
doubt LRA36 on again since it`s Tuesday, but slightly lower than
measured last week. Manuel Méndez, Spain, meanwhile got a reply from
RNASG March 30 that they do operate Tue & Thu at 1230-1400, but are
looking into adding an evening broadcast. With staff names:

``Señor Director de la Emisora Gustavo Ernesto QUIROGA
Encargado de la Emisora José Ramón CALPANCHAY (Operador Técnico)
Locutoras:
Sabrina ALANIS
Beatriz COSTILLA
Karina MUÑOZ
Nuestros medios de contactos son:
Por correo electrónico: lra36@...``

Last Tuesday April 2 they did stay on until 2059* mostly music as
monitored by Bruce Churchill via the remote in Brasil.

Wolfgang Bueschel replies today April 9: ``Nothing visible on SDR's in
Perseus server net, but noted KiwiSDR net on Brazil Rio de Janeiro
island, off coast SDR installation. S=3 or -113dBm music program at
1540 UT at April 9, AGC off, manual gain 97dB. 73 wb df5sx``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11850, April 8 at 2302, RHC Spanish again on new frequency,
and this time at S9+10/20 on fundamental, I can also detect the -10
kHz JBA spur on 11840. So the spur and fundamental have swapped
places. Jamming still running on 11860 but one or two carriers
underneath, no doubt the matching spur plus 10 from 11850. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, April 9 at 0607, another hour of RHC English is still
running here and on the rest of The Cuban Five: 6165, 6100, 6060 all
sufficient, except 6000 JBA, much softer than 5995 Mali. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 9 at 1314, RHC is VP and JBM, still ex-6150 but
no 2x audible on 12000, and // 9640 which Wolfgang Bueschel found
missing earlier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9465, April 9 at 1325, S4-S6 pop song stands out
from other E Asian programming; Aoki shows it`s Nippon no Kaze in
Korean via Paochung, TAIWAN at 1300-1330; followed immediately by FEBC
Bocaue in Yue, when I do have a much weaker signal (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. April 9 at 1420 UT, regional tropo DTV DX is
up; Hepburn map for 1500 UT shows Enid on the northern edge of level-1
enhancement, surrounding levels 2 and 3 in S Central OK. Most open UHF
and a few hi-VHF channels show BAD signals, but only one is decoding
solidly, from OKC:

RF 21, KUOT is the PSIP ID on all six of its subs, some with corner
bugs, some without or illegible. I later compare to rabbitears.info:

21-1, bug upper right Y in a circle and below that ctvn.org for
Cornerstone TV
21-2, no bug but r-e listed as IBN TV; what`s that?
21-3, 3ABN LR
21-4, AFTV, not 3ABN Latino as in r-e (AmFacts - Amazing Facts)
21-5, HopeChannel, UR below a logo - NO audio!! r-e says 3ABN Proclaim
21-6, unID; r-e has only 1 thru 5!

Rabbitears says this is really KUOT-CD, 15 kW ERP at 591 feet above
ground level; slightly direxional favoring NW. Digital channel 21,
display channel 19 --- no the display channel is also 21 now.

This holds up solid on both my broken rooftop antennas, over an hour
until about 1535 UT fade below threshold. Some of the channels are
same as on my local 3ABN translator K17JN-D which *still* is emitting
subs 1, 3, and 5 only, as per PSIPs except 17-1 only with callsign:
17-1, 3ABN bug LR
17-3, AmFacts and bug LR
17-5, Hope201 and HopeChannel bug UR

At 1601-1604 UT another bandscan finds Wichitans in from the north,
decoding or semi-decoding into my SSE/SE-facing antennas:

RF 45, KSNW DT 3-1 --- still not repacked to 15 where will collide
with KTBO OKC; also with: 3-2 Telemun[do]; 3-3 Ion; 3-4 Justice
RF 35, MyTV 36-1, i.e. KMTW Hutchinson
RF 31, KDCU-DT 31-1, Univision; too weak to explore -2, -3, -4
RF 26, FOX 24-1 [obviously KSAS --- and OKC`s Fox on RF 24, 25-1 KOKH,
also PSIP IDs only as FOX!]
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. Dead air from TOMBS: see USA: WRMI, WWCR

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1976 monitoring: just after
dispatching my last report, checking via UTWente SDR for WOR via IRRS
via ROMANIA, scheduled for 1800 (ex-1900) UT Mondays on 7290:

From 1758 UT Monday April 8, I am instead hearing Chinese music, 1800
timesignal, CNR1 theme. NO IRRS --- HFCC now has CNR Beijing scheduled
until 1805, and it does go off and/or is replaced by a strong tone,
presumably IRRS getting ready and then open carrier. Soon I find this
timely notice from IRRS:

``Hi Glenn, Due to a last minute schedule change, we are starting 15
min later on 7290 kHz (1815-1915 UT daily, Summer), so your program
goes on air at 1815 UT (20:15 CEST) on Monday. 73, Alfredo Cotroneo``

So that avoids the CNR overlap. But there is considerable splash from
7280 in Spanish, 7300 in German. 7280 is Vietnam direct; 7300 is Iran
until 1820. I notify the above change to the WOR iog just in time at
1812.

WOR does start promptly at 1815, good signal. Bruce Churchill, CA,
replies: ``Nice signal from IRRS at 1822 8 April from KiwiSDR in Bay
of Islands NZ (path length nearly 10,800 miles) - SINPO 3/4,3544. At
1836 a white noise source co-channel wiped out the program, but
fortunately switching modes to USB solved that issue. Switched back to
AMN mode at 1850.5 and the noise was gone. However CRI's 500 kW 7295
xmtr coming on at 1857 forced me to switch to LSB mode - again this
eliminated the QRM. World of Radio program from tune-in to 1844,
Feature Story News (FSN) news broadcast at 1844.5, then "Shortwave
Report" at 1849.5 with extracts of news & opinion from Deutsche Welle,
Radio Habana Cuba and Russian Radio. Carrier off promptly at 1915.
Bruce``

Next scheduled WOR broadcast is 0030 UT Tuesday April 9 on WRMI 7730
--- but checked at 0041 thru 0059, VG Wavescan is playing instead!
Mistake? WS is already scheduled immediately prior at 0000, so twice
in a row, or swapped with WOR at 0000? Anybody hear it then? Websked
still shows 0030 WOR.

WOR still confirmed UT Tue Apr 9 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S9+10.

WRMI-13 is now on skedgrid starting at 2300 with TOMBS for an hour,
then System D from 0000 (see WOR monitoring); while 11 & 12, 7570 &

** BRAZIL. 9671.4 & 9657.7 approx., April 8 at 0548, RVM again tonight
putting out lots of spurious, peaking intermittently around here from
fundamental 9664.52, during gospel huxter preaching. Especially on the
plus side there is plenty of garbage in between. Displacements are
plus 6.88 and minus 6.82 kHz, averaging 6.85 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11850, April 7 at 2125, RHC Spanish surprises us on another
new frequency, revolutionary music // 11760. Apparently ex-11840 which
transmitter was always flanked by weak but readable spurs on 11830 &
11850, but this is no spur nor are there any audible 10 kHz above and
below it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, April 8 at 0624, RHC English is S9+20 of dead air here;
6100 S9+40 with mailbag, good modulation, as is 6060 only S9+20; 6000
also S9+20 but with some distortion. 5040 is off. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, April 8 at 1328, RHC here for second day ex-13780, and
off by 1400, so apparently deliberate; why? HFCC as of April 5 shows
no collision on 13780; Saudi adjacent 13775 & 13785 but not
significant; while 13740 already has Iran and Issoudun covering the
entire presumed RHC span 11-14 UT; altho neither noted here before RHC
glommed. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 8 at 1334, surprise, RHC is back here ex-6150 for
morning 49m broadcast, S7-S9 but just barely modulated. These are
happening a week after A-19 began for participating stations; what
next from Arnie? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1975 monitoring: while I was busy finishing

WRMI at 0130 with Glenn Hauser's “World of Radio” - Good Apr 6 [UT
Sat] – WRMI is finally showing “World of Radio” at this hour instead
of IBC Radio on their schedule spreadsheet``

WORLD OF RADIO 1976 monitoring: confirmed Sunday April 7 at 2130 on

Also confirmed UT Monday April 8 at 0130 on WRMI 9395 only, S9+10/20

Also confirmed UT Monday April 8 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair

Also confirmed UT Monday April 8 at 0300 on Area 51 webcast; and via

Also confirmed UT Monday April 8 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, S9+10 fading to

** U S A. 7490+, UT Monday April 8 at 0000, WBCQ starts playing
`Encore`, the new weekly classical music hour; just after I dispatch a
reminder to the WOR iog. At first I am listening on webcast for
convenience; but less than 2 minutes later, WBCQ switches to sign-off
announcement! (with classical music, anyway), and then to Town Hall
far-right network feed with commercials, and 0006 starting ``Common
Sense Show``. I confirm the same is happening on 7490, which has not
signed off.

Not checked again until 0015, now when `Encore` is back, with Brice
introducing only the second item on this week`s playlist,
https://www.tumbril.co.uk/playlists --- the Shostakovich, so may have
restarted from the beginning in the meantime. I notified the WOR iog
immediately of the problem and Brice also contacted WBCQ. I continue
to listen, after 0040 only to SW, which is S9+20 but not enough to
overcome some lightning crashes (from central TX?). Despite this, I
think I prefer hearing it on SW, which is shall we say, more
``dynamic`` than a webcast. A nice mixture of war horses and less
familiar contemporary music. Keeps playing past 0100 when the hour
should have finished, to 0113 when WBCQ makes an abrupt change to rock
music. Brice Avery says, ``I am listening on SDR in various parts of
the US and the quality is excellent`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 5800, April 8 at 0039, no signal from WRMI; checked after
John Figliozzi, Sarasota, reported: ``5800nf - USA - WRMI, Okeechobee
FL@0000w/Xmas mx & EE ann. ID on hr. //5950. SINPO - 35433. (4/8/19
Figliozzi, FL) John Figliozzi Sarasota FL Lowe HF-150 / BoniWhip
antenna``. So WRMI must have briefly powered up on 5800. `Countdown 2
Xmas` is on 5950 // 9395 already this hour even in April. WRMI skeds
have been revised dated April 7, but still don`t show 5800, and still
contain outdated System D material including some non-existent WOR
times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, April 8 at 0532, JBA talk, got to be WTWW-1 still on
day frequency since SFAW 5830 night frequency is AWOL. Ted does it
again! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15102-USB, April 8 at 1405, very poor 2-way INTRUDERS,
sounds like Brazilians; unstable with pitch varying by modulation
level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9671.3 & 9657.4, 0553 April 7, approx. spots where
intermittent spur carriers with same talk modulation are spewing out
of 9664.53, Voz Missionária, among others. These compute to plus 6.77
and minus 7.13 kHz from fundamental. First time noted any such
problems from ZYE890 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11855.7, Apr 6 at 2152, R. Aparecida S5-S7 and improving
gradually, but still too weak by 2221 to comprehend `Encontro DX`
scheduled at 2200 Sat including DX news from Célio Romais (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 6 at 0523, RHC English is S9+10 but just barely
modulated, like 6165; 6060 is VG S9+20, 6100 is S9+20/30 but
undermodulated; 5040 S9+30 with sufficient mod. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, April 6 at 0529, R. Rebelde modulation is cutting off
and on; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, April 7 at 0006, RHC attempt at an additional hour of
English fails as no signal here yet, while 6000 is S9+10 but suptorted
rating VP. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13728.296, April 7 at 1329, RHC very weak spur but with some
modulation // source 13700, and a matching one on the minus side,
unmeasured. I have continued hearing these any morning but not
relogged until now for the record. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, April 7 at 1331, RHC surprised here ex-13780, S9+10/20
always somewhat weaker than // 13700, S9+20/30. 13740 off by 1409
recheck. Accident or deliberate QSY? May or may not be wrong. Wonder
if this like 13780 will also occasionally get knocked off, to about
13739.25? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15590, April 7 at 1335, S5-S8 with flutter in
English, sounds like CRI, and yes, seems same as on 9570 via CUBA but
far out of synch. Still but poorer at 1406. HFCC shows ubiquitous 500
kW, 308 degrees toward W Europe from Urumqi site, English at 12-15.
OOFSOB = one of few signals on band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5980, April 6 at 1342, RNZI choral music at S9 so
today has switched from 5945 unlike yesterday after 1300.

Meanwhile I sent my earlier A-19 obs to Adrian Sainsbury, who replied:

``Hi Glenn, Thank you for the feedback. There is no change planned at
present. I am visiting Samoa and Tokelau Islands for the next 2 weeks.
It will give me the opportunity to do some monitoring and help decide
if any change is required for our target area. Re 5980 the 6 MHz band
is crowded and it is difficult finding a clear channel for the long
periods we require. Replacing 9630 will be an easier to achieve.
Regards, Adrian Sainsbury | RNZI Frequency Manager, RNZ | Level 2, 155
The Terrace | PO Box 123 | Wellington | New Zealand``

9630, April 7 at 0550, RNZI VG about eels, no Aparecida het tonight.
All RNZ National programs should now be appearing one UT hour later as
NZ is back on standard time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 9689.9+, April 6 at 1900, REE SPAIN 9690 with
deportes again vs that tell-tale het on the low side as Voice of
Nigeria is still colliding with its LAH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960.02-USB, April 7 at 0007, DJ glad we are
listening and playing soft rock, S6-S8 vs storm noise; 0011 ``This is
W-T-F Worldwide``, mentions music of ``golden years``; 0015 ``W-T-F
Radio Worldwide`` past 0019. He utters the WTF abbr., rather than
``what`s the frequency`` or something else. Many more reports covering
0008-0050+:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,52688.0.html
No one else mentions SSB music sounding best when tuned 20 Hz high
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. UNIDENTIFIED: 6990v-LSB, April 7 at 0202, the weird
guy uttering Japanese-sounding syllables, interspersed with long
``aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhs`` is back! Such as kawata, koto, ishinata.
During one aaahhh the tone shifts as he is tuning down to about
6989.92. Also some long pauses past 0209, then stops. My last log of
him was Jan 14 at 0552 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 102.3-WBFM, April 6 circa 1945 & 2045 UT chex on caradio,
hard rock station IDing only as ``Q102``, somewhat marginal but steady
signal. For some reason I am drawing a blank on it: WTFDA Database
says it`s KWDQ Woodward OK. Perhaps due to its isolation, this little
town has a dozen FM stations of which only 5 are translators or LP.
This and 100.1 a full 100 kW. Long gone are the days of 100.1 & 102.3
as Class A channels limited to 3 kW ERP. 2010y population 12K, in the
county only 20K. Woodward has two non-translator public radio relays,
of KGOU and KUCO, unlike 50K Enid with zero, not even translators
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030 & 11940 & 11670 & 9690, Sat Apr 6 at 2130, all four
REE transmitters are running and audible in Castilian, rather than
Arabic, which is evidently M-F on 12030 & 11670 only (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) see also NIGERIA [and non]

** SWEDEN [non]. 15510, April 7 at 1808, OOFSOB, poor S4-S6 in African
language, French influence? HFCC and Aoki show it`s Radio Sama, via
IBRA Media via Woofferton UK in Fur at 1800-1830, flanked by 1730 Bej,
and 1830-1900 Ara languages. Fur? EiBi readme.txt says spoken by 0.5
mega in Darfur. WRTH had B-18 frequency as 9635 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 15450, April 7 at 1320, JBA carrier presumed from VOT
English starting at 1230 but not propagating beyond Europe? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1975 monitoring: Noel Green,
England reports: Hello Glenn, I'm very glad to see you active again
and I hope you're feeling much better. This is to confirm that WOR was
audible this morning April 6 from Hamburg on 6190 at fair strength.
They actually started just after 0630 UT. I could copy about 80%+ of
what was being said - you started by apologising for being away from
the radio due to illness - because of local noise problems, their 1 kW
is not sufficient to overcome this unfortunately. But none the less it
was good to hear you. Best 73 from Noel``.

That was last week`s 1975, as 1976 was not ready until 0140, too late
in the middle of the night for HLR to get it loaded for new time 0629,
understandably. Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria also reports:

``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, April 6
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/04/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_6.html
0631-0700 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, good signal``

WORLD OF RADIO 1976 monitoring: Next HLR airing should have been Sat
Apr 6 at 1431 on 9485-CUSB, but inaudible via UTwente SDR, and no
other reports received about it.

Confirmed Sat Apr 6 after 2100 on WRMI 9955, S4-S7.

Also confirmed UT Sun Apr 7 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG

Also confirmed UT Sun Apr 7 at 0344 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+10
including storm noise, about 15 minutes into, so started circa 0329

with low-power tests. However some later chex have not detected it

** AUSTRALIA. 9610, April 4 at 1325, S8-S9 in S Asian language saying
``@twr.in`` so it must be TWR-India, via?? NO, scheduled is Reach
Beyond Australia on 9610 in Hindi until 1330 Thursdays. Could RBA be
secretly carrying TWR programming, or did I mishear? A bit more S
Asian talk and music follows (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. 15120-15125, Thu April 4 at 1403, I can tell WINB
hybrid DRM is on, but VP S4 about = noise level. This must be the new
Unique Radio transmission at 14-15 Wed/Thu/Fri. Tim doesn`t say what
the program is --- his own `Sounds of Your Life`??

BTW, NIGERIA could also be DRMing circa 15119.9 as early as 1600 in
Arabic, as reported by Ivo Ivanov; while WINB is scheduled until 1700
M-F, so a head-on collision is possible. I wonder what will happen
then? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1976, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11855.693, April 4 at 0535 JBA carrier, no doubt an
apparition from Aparecida back on air this overnight, and the OSOB
except for weak 11520 WEWNglish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CANADA. 341 kHz, April 4 at 0549 UT, dash and YYU ND beacon, 500
watts from Kapuskasing, Ontario, one neat name. Town website says,
``Did you know? Kapuskasing means "Bend in the river" in Cree``. Also
logged a USA station on same frequency, different pitch, q.v. (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 4 at 0520, RHC is S9+20 of dead air in English;
6060 is S9+20/30 good modulation of music in Spanish; 6100 S9+20/30,
undermodulated but sufficient to hear; 6165 S9+10 undermodulated.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, April 4 at 1858, S9+10 open carrier from RHC about to
start algo at 1900? Nothing known before 1930 French to Europe. Is
this something wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 5 at 0534, RHC English S9+10 JBM here; 6060 S9+10
good mod; 6100 S9+20 undermodulated; 6165 S9+10 JBM; 5040 S9+20
distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Also suffering from local
high line noise level at S9 on this and lower bands! (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, April 5 at 1402, RHC is S8-S9 but just barely
modulated; while 15140 is only S7-S8 but sufficiently modulated. But
by 1651, 15140 is suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6070, Thursday April 4 at 1348, two carriers
making fast SAH, CFRX vs Sea Breeze, JAPAN, as I can almost recognize
its earnest YL in English; as Ron Howard reports, presumably // on
5920 vs Voice of Freedom, which are VP here. At 1405 I am hearing CFRX
only on 6070-minus (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1976, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 9630, April 4 at 0516, RNZI is much weaker
than usual, in fact about equal to the het from 9630.48 R. Aparecida,
Brasil. Due to local storms I am on the internal longwire, but don`t
think that should make much relative difference --- if anything,
Brasil should be weaker on it.

9630, April 5 at 0532, RNZI back up to S9+10 tonight, way atop the
still audible Aparecida het to the plus side.

5945, April 5 at 1330, RNZI still on here with music instead of 5980
after 1259, then 1332 YL about Solar System; S9+10 including local HNL
of S9, still detectable past 1400. Perhaps coping with the JSR clash
on 5980? But websked still shows 5980 from 1259 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. 4635, April 5 at 0137, notorious buzzer is barely audible;
seems not evenly spaced, occasionally a double-buzz, adding up to
approx. 64 times per minute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 9690, April 4 at 1853, REE is poor S4-S8 but
alone. Have not heard the tell-tale het from Nigeria-minus lately. Ivo
Ivanov says the other collision on 9690 with MWV Russian at 19-20 has
been resolved by its last-minute change to 9845 (where I get a JBA
carrier at best) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1976, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 15450, April 4 at 1320, no signal from VOT English to
Europe and USward from 1230 in A-19, nor have I been able to detect it
yet past few days; pitiful propagation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 341 kHz, April 4 at 0549 UT, as I am copying ND beacon YYU
from Kapuskasing, CANADA, another one on same frequency at higher
pitch, much weaker is OIN, 25 watts from relatively close Oberlin,
Kansas, new here. Wait a minute, what about my local on 341, Enid`s
own EI ---? Must be off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1975 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday April 3 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S8-S9; and 4 seconds later on
WBCQ 7490.15v, S3-S5.

Missed checking UT Thu April 4 at 0000 on WRMI 7730 while I was at a
planetarium show by Northern Oklahoma College; confirmed at 0125 UT

** U S A. 17774.990, April 4 at 1408, absolutely no signal from KVOH
if it opened at 1400, or totally not propagating, as usually inaudible
before noon here. By 1852 it`s S7-S8 poor in music, but the OSOB!
Built up to S9 of Spanish praise music by 1952 when I measure it: old
transmitter was put on 17774.989, so I suspect this is still it,
unless they have managed to tune replacement to the same offset? How
about that, Ray Robinson? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALBANIA. 9480, April 2 at 1956, something here cuts off at 1957* in
absence of 9475 WTWW on 5830 instead, and would have been blocked by
9475 splash. It`s only CRI French relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WRMI

** ARGENTINA [non]. See USA: WRMI

** BRAZIL. 4774.976, April 3 at 0624, weak music vs CODAR. Following
my previous report whether it`s Brasil, Perú or Swaziland, Manuel
Méndez, Spain, IDed Rádio Congonhas [NOT ``Radio Sora``]:

``Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, Log in Friol, Tecsun S-8800, cable
antenna, 8 meters: BRAZIL, 4775, Radio Congonhas, Congonhas, 0355-
0445, 02-04, after various months without heard it, now on air.
Brazilian songs, pop songs in English, at 0414: "Uma e quatorze", at
0424: "Radio Congonhas AM...", “Radio Congonhas a emissora do Bom
Jesus”. Weak. 15311`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9630.47 approx., April 3 at 0556, R. Aparecida reactivated
on split frequency as het way underneath RNZI which landed here for A
-19 in the 05-07 span. See NEW ZEALAND.

Other unblocked ZY frequencies as measured:

9664.626, April 3 at 0559, Voz Missionária the outstanding ZY signal
tonight, S9-S7, TC for 3 am at 0600.

9818.762, April 3 at 0603, R. Nove de Julho, JBA, presumably still 24h
relay of R. Aparecida.

11815.028, April 3 at 0606, JBA music presumed R. Brasil Central.

11856v, NO signal from R. Aparecida here.

6134.823, April 3 at 0617, R. Aparecida with song/hymn vs stray Cuban
pulse jamming, S7; 0620 flagship program ID ``Com a Mãe Aparecida``.

This measurement contradicts Anker Petersen who has been reporting it
as 6134.84, apparently needing receiver recalibration. (This is not
splitting hairs, as precise off-frequency measurements are a great aid
to identification, but they need to be accurate.)

Also regarding R. Aparecida, Célio Romais in Porto Alegre told me
March 26 that he is still doing a DX report, now only for `Encontro
DX` on this station, Saturdays at 2200 UT; example:
https://youtu.be/tsuvaslJOUA
Does not specify frequencies, but has been on irregular variables:
5035, 6135, 9630, 11855 and via 9 Julho 9820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9800, April 3 at 1354, story in English from CRI // 9570 via
CUBA; now here this hour only, 500 kW due SE from Kunming, instead of
VOA Korean heard during B-18 on 9800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 2940+, re my several recent logs of an harmonic here,
many tnx to Brett Saylor who has definitely IDed it as the same one
which was being heard a few years ago:

``Hi Glenn, Regarding the reports of a station on 2940.x, I heard HJNT
Huellas Radio, Cali, Colombia on approx. 2940.11 kHz (2 x 1470.x) with
impassioned Spanish preacher at 1030 UT on 2 April 2019 on my Perseus
SDR and south 16' x 36' Wellbrook broadband loop; confirmed this was
HJNT via comparison with the TWR kiwiSDR in Bonaire and the station's
own web stream at http://www.radios.com.co/huellas/ --- Best 73, Brett
Saylor W3SWL, State College, PA``

Huella means footprint, or vestige, apropos for harmonic, unlikely
chosen deliberately! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, April 2 at 1951, RHC in French, while 15140 is in
English. French must have shifted an hour earlier; still shown in
Aoki/NDXC not starting until 2030. Something`s always wrong? at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6150, April 3 at 1247, RHC still here as only 49mb morning
frequency, undermodulated, but inaudible on 12300 = x 2. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, April 3 at 1444, RHC is S9+10 of dead air. Also before
1400 I noticed that 13780 was much weaker by comparison. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, April 2 after 2000, VOG poor signal but almost
suffices for napmusic, until chopped off air abruptly at 2020*,
whenever they get around to it regardless of programming in progress
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, April 3 at 0629, S9+10 of open carrier which TGAV
has not yet turned off; why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6070, April 3 at 1302, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze
allegedly here via JAPAN, maybe the slight fast SAH on CFRX which is
always a few Hz to the low side. Ron Howard called 6070 a `clear`
frequency for Shiokaze, April 1, maybe in California but certainly not
here. And S/SB has started running a second frequency, 5920 clashing
with another clandestine for NK, Voice of Freedom! There I can`t make
out anything from one or two weakies. However, today April 3, Ron says
S/SB was *not* on 6070 at 1316, just colliding on 5920; what about
tomorrow with English? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 9630.47, April 3 at 0556, 9630.0 RNZI is
S9+10 but with a het just as I feared, obviously R. Aparecida, Brasil,
reactivated. NZ is way stronger but unnecessarily faces this QRM for
the 05-07 span while countless other 31m channels are vacant. Brasil
prop is up tonight, as I measure several others, q.v.

5945, April 3 at 1245, RNZI on `overnight` channel, S7-S9 fair with
flutter in Pidgin, ``blong Papua New Guinea``. Off before 1259:

5980, April 3 at *1259 RNZI s/on with bellbird, S7-S9 but less fadey,
more solid signal than 5945 had been, as to be expected also switching
from NNW-only to NNE antenna better for us. Initially some residual
Cuban pulse jamming underneath, tho Martí finished an hour earlier.
1300 timesignal and RNZ Pacific, news including case dropped against
Fiji MPs for sedition; Solomon polls have closed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, April 3 at 1255, S6-S9 open carrier with
flutter, decent signal from presumed SIBC, maybe still on for elexion
day, but hardly helpful if not modulated. Some ACI from 5025 Cuba
music; and much stronger than 5055 Australia carrier.

However, Ron Howard says 5020 was modulated: ``SIBC (presumed), 1244+,
on April 3. Another day of slightly above threshold level audio; pop
songs (many C&W songs); another day running past their usual 1200*
(Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, Etón E1, antenna: 100' long
wire, WOR iog via DXLD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Tue April 2 at 2130, REE splits this frequency from
the others to begin Arabic, ``Huna Madrid``, ex 2230- in B-season. Is
it M-F? Very smooth transition, as `Tablero Deportivo` had just
wrapped up on this and 11940, 9690 (but 11670 still AWOL). After time
pip, 11940 & 9690 continue in Castilian discussing animal languages on
`Vía Acústica``, interesting programming we are deprived of in English
tnx to Coe`s obsession with music. Manuel in Spain also reports Arabic
until 1700 April 3 on 12030, then M/W/F Russian, ex-1800 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, April 2 at 1950, S9 open carrier, Greenville-B
warming up for 2000 VOA French on same. Unlike B-18, in A-19 there is
no VOA broadcast from another site just before this, so no need for a
warmup on 15740 instead. Sked is now 2000-2030 daily in French, plus
2030-2100 Sun in French, Sat in Hausa. 17530 GB is already running in
French from 1930 daily until 2030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. At 0131 UT Tue April 2, Peter Hansen in FL reported to the
WOR io group: ``No Argentina on 9395 tonight --- Argentina not on
tonight, religion instead, Peace with God. No Albania at 0130 either,
more religion. Peter W Hansen``

Could the relay contract have expired? So I check the confusing WRMI
skedgrids. RAE English at 01 and all the other languages are still
showing as before. Further monitoring: April 2 at 2115, 7780 is poor
in RAE German; 9395 S9 with song in Spanish, 2118 sports report in RAE
Italian.

9395, UT Wed April 3 at 0059 tune-in, double-audio! from WRMI: gospel
huxter in English runs thru hourtop as `Hope for the Heart`, show
title? while audible underneath is WRMI ID and 0100 RAE multi-lingual
crutch filler, 0102 sign-on in English --- just as QRM stops since
it`s from a different transmitter! cutting off the air, clearing 9395
for RAE only; 0118 another multi-ling ID spiel. It`s hard to imagine
any other US station on 9395 by mistake, rather WRMI QRMing itself.
Searching WRMI skedgrids, no hits on Hope or Heart.

9395, UT Wed April 3 at 0142 check, R. Tirana relay, Klara confirmed
still on WRMI, S9+10, tho missing yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, April 2 at 1956, WTWW-1 night frequency with music
after found missing from day frequency 9475; no doubt Ted failed to
make the QSY yet again this morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, April 3 at 1441, piano hymn, music unusual on
WJHR Milton FL, but soon back to gospel huxtering. Poor signal, but
would you believe this 1 kW PEP is among the best on band, better than
100 kWs but JBA 15770 SMTV WRMI, and JBA carrier 15825 WWCR? Cubans
also very weak. WJHR rarely audible at all. Narrow HF sporadic E
boost? Maybe, but none showing on 10m DX map (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15115-15120-15125, April 3 at 1442, WINB hybrid DRM on new
frequency, ex-13750-13755-13760, but VP propagation. As always, DRM
noise on top half only, some kind of secret data beepery (HF trading?)
on bottom half. At least that distinguishes it from Voice of Nigeria,
which also uses 15120 for full DRM normally after 1800, but has also
shown up here much earlier in AM or DRM. I can hardly wait for a head
-on DRM collision (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5800, April 3 at 1305, JBA carrier, nothing listed.
Certainly not Europirate at this hour; something E Asian? Or WRMI?

** CANADA. 2749-USB, April 2 at 0637 UT, unusual to hear anything in
the nightmiddle, but marine weather info in French with English
accent; millibars and direxions mentioned, also Matane several times
which is a Québec city on the Gaspé coast NE of Rimouski. Stops at
0639* and nothing now on 2598-USB either. I cannot find a 2019
schedule on the Canadian Coast Guard site, just 2018:
http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Marine-Communications/RAMN-2018/Part2#21
which does not show anystation ending around 0640 UT; and it has never
been clear to me whether these stations stay on UT or make DST shifts!
CCG 2018 sked does show VCO Sydney NS *starting at 0740 UT via Port
Caledonia site, English only, which would now be *0640 if DST be
observed. Nor does this version:
http://dxinfocentre.com/mb.htm#O%20ATL

Bill Hepburn replies already to an advance copy of the above:

``Hi Glenn, That could've just been an unscheduled broadcast with a
marine warning or an amended forecast. Unscheduled broadcasts are not
that uncommon. I've heard lots of them over the years. They also
interrupt the VHF continuous marine broadcasts.

From the RAMN: "MCTS Centres broadcast marine safety information
through continuous, scheduled and unscheduled broadcasts to provide
mariners with information such as weather bulletins, ice information,
and notices to shipping (NOTSHIP) concerning the operational status of
navigational aids and dangers to navigation."

BTW, broadcast times noted in UT remain on UT regardless of ST/DT
status. The RAMN's are now updated on an ongoing basis - so it's
always the latest issue. You can check the amendment dates on the
Amendment Register on page i. The "year" changes in April, the
official annual issue time.

My guess is that you heard Escoumins Coast Guard Radio broadcasting
from its site on Grindstone Island, QC. Regards, Bill Hepburn``

** CUBA. 6000, Monday April 1 at 2302, no signal from RHC for `Mesa
Redonda` TV soundtrack, which is S9+30 on only // 11950. So no ACI
this side of 5995 Mali. By 2306, 6000 has come on too. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, April 2 at 0625, this RHC English is off; 6060 is loud
S9+30 with music; 6100 is S9+30 but undermodulated with hum; 6165 only
S7 and u/mod. At 0629, 5040 starts `Focus on Africa` with a song from
Sierra Leone, good S9+20. So English span is now more-or-less 23-07.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13820, April 2 at 1338, residual lite jamming on
ex-Martí frequency, while heavier jamming seems now under replacement
13605 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 13735, April 2 at 1340, YL speaking, S4 with flutter. HFCC
shows nothing but VIRI in Russian, 1320-1430, 500 kW, 336 degrees from
Sirjan. One of few signals on band besides Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 5980, April 2 at 1413, RNZI is S9-S6, poor
maybe with SAH; Ron Howard reports that Shiokaze/Sea Breeze has
started using two frequencies at once, including this one for the
daily 1405-1435 Japanese broadcast, // 6090 (and the 1300-1400
including Thursday English is on 5920 // 6070). JIC continues to
demonstrate incompetence in frequency management, as NZ is not the
only collision. Will Adrian keep it there? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Monday April 1 at 2201, REE in English, with what
else, music, in this case a blues band visiting and then Justin Coe
interviews a Jeff. So for A-18, English has shifted one UT hour
earlier to 2200-2230 M/W/F. Should also be on the other three, 12030,
11940, 11670. Come on, Justin, suppress your música-sobretodo-mania
and give us some news, even analysis of current events in Spain! Or
would that be too unsafe under circumstances? Secret REE Arabic should
now be at 2130, M-F? on 12030, 11670, unchecked yet (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830.05 approx., April 1 at 2228, VOT English to N America
for A-19, no RTTY QRM, only slightly off-frequency+plus, pending a
crash to 9830.7v one of these days. (I also must cope with a constant
local device JBA carrier slightly off 9830.000.) But something else is
already wrong: 2259 still on with IS, and 2300, 2-second-late, 6-pip
mis-timesignal and into GERMAN! still past 2305 check, just like
sloppyrators at Emiler would do in B-season after 0000 on 5960.
Fortunately now there are no legitimate broadcasters to collide on
9830 after 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Monday April 1 at 2140, Radio Free Grenada ID for
15105 kHz! It`s featured on `La Rosa de Tokio` this week via WRMI;
later discusses Radio Swan. This show and `Historias de Radio` provide
a *lot* of historical SW info with clips (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, April 2 at 0622, S9+40/50 of dead air, obviously WWCR
transmitter normally off at this time; equivalent level to 5935 with
DGS modulation. What of the other two? 4840 at 0630 is also dead air
of S9+30, instead of Alex Jones? (who has admitted he is psychotic) -
-- no, scheduled InfoWars until 0600, then TOMBS here too; 3215 at
0633 is S9+20 with double-audio! at about equal level: TOMBS and
something mentioning 1-800-VENUSLIVE (?). Both are on both LSB and
USB; the least WWCR could do would be to separate them sidebandedly.
Own WWCR program sked dated April 1 shows 3215 is supposed to be OFF
the air at 05-09! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4810, April 2 at 0630, steady weak carrier here, vs
utehash on plus side. Aoki thinx R. Logos, Perú runs 0900-2400 only;
EiBi B-18 shows 1000-1300 & 2300-0226. WRTH 2019 is noncommittal as to
hours. Could also be a ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5800, April 2 at 0623, OM solo song, VP S4-S5, need LSB
to avoid ute QRM plus. No legit broadcasters scheduled here except:
Guess what ---- now registered in Jeff`s A-19 HFCC is WRMI available
24 hours on 5800 via 181 degree Cuban antenna; but surely not this
now, far too weak. Nor is it a Cuban spur as one must always consider.

Checking full HFCC, 5800 and 11580 24h are the only RMI listings not
(yet?) in use, but most current frequencies are registered beyond
their axual hours.

However, Free Radio Service Holland publicized activity as of March 31
on 5800 i.a., but not mentioned at this specific time. Here`s what
FRSH says:
http://www.frsholland.nl/20-latest-news/129-frs-holland-on-air-on-sunday-march-31st-2019.html
So it could well be some other Europirate now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** ANGOLA. 4949.732, April 1 at 0132, JBA carrier, presumed RNA on
signature off-frequency - checked just as I am mentioning on 9395
during WOR that Ron Howard had found them missing. Also an even weaker
carrier close to 4950.0, likely AIR Srinagar, Kashmir --- neither in
HFCC but in Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 328 kHz, April 1 at 0617, dash and YTL from NDB beacon at
Big Trout Lake, Ont., 1000 watts. Really remote, fly-in only in NW
Ont., beyond Pickle Lake, almost 90 west, 54 north. 2031 km = 1262
miles from here. Also got three de USA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7355, April 1 at 0042, wall-of-noise jamming
against no Martí, which seems jamfree on 7335 // 7365. Way to go,
incompetent DCJC on first day of new season! HFCC A-19 registrations
for IBB in Spanish from Greenville-B, which mean precisely nothing but
RM:
23-03 7365 00-07 7335 00-12 6030 03-05 7435 05-07 7365 07-10 5980

14-24 11930 20-24 9565
We sincerely hope this non-classified info assist DCJC to jam correct
frequencies and no others! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, April 1 at 0049, RHC English is instead S9+20 of dead
air; while 6000 has undermodulated music at S9+10/20. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11670, April 1 at 0100, RHC news theme for Spanish is S9 but
JBM, much softer than 11700, 11760, 11840 and its 11830/11850 spurs.
Spain is now scheduled on 11670 until 2300 so will those ever collide?
Not sure when RHC start, where something always be wrong (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, April 1 at 0544, RHC English survey during music: this
one is S9-S6 and JBM; 6100 S9+10 suptorted; 6060 S9+20 slightly
distorted and Algerian Qur`anRM is gone! 6000 S9/+10 JBM and
distorted; 5040 S9+30 about like 6060.

Rechecking at 0606+, 6165 JBM; 6100 undermod; 6000 OFF; 6060 & 5040
both with CCI --- no it`s not, rather undercurrent during voice-over
translation, self-QRM! When will SW stations ever learn to fade the VO
down completely once briefly established?? Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4764.999, April 1 at 0327, R. Progreso VG signal measured
here with margin of error of 2 Hz at most. And it matches 5025 BFO
pitch. Anker Petersen, Denmark has been reporting this as 4765.02,
such as March 24 at 0330, but I have never noticed them that far off
in BFO 1-kHz-step bandscans. Some of his other logs such as Eritrea
and Mali appear to be measured +.01 or +.02 too high. Please check
receiver calibration vs WWV or the like (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7180.024, April 1 at 0325, JBA carrier, presumed VOBME,
but nothing on other channel 7140+; nor still inactive Somaliland 7120
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 12005, April 1 at 1418, SW Asian music S7-S8, from
Radio Farda, eastward from Woofferton at 13-18 (also Lampertheim at
11-13) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 9625, April 1 at 1420, Japanese lesson for English
with arpeggios, as NHK 1400-1430 is now here, due west from PALAU.
Ignore all the South Africa listings on 9625 still in HFCC A-18 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995.000V, April 1 at 0550, R. Mali is already on with song
of lament in French, S9 and best heard yet. 0556 apparent switch to IS
repeating; 0557 military-band NA, sign-on in French I copy partially
vs distraxions, including ``Ici l`Office de Radiodiffusion Télévision
du Mali, éméttant de Bamako,`` and decades-outdated frequency list
including 4783 and another on 60m! And 92 MHz FM (four-score and
twelve). With BFO, frequency wavers very slightly. By 0602 is in non-
French, probably Bambara. Anker Petersen, Denmark, has reported this
on 5995.02, such as March 25 at 2120, but again I think his
measurement is way off. Please calibrate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5980, April 1 at 1416, RNZI is poor S5-S7 on new
frequency, bad for us. Maybe usable somewhat from *1259 if the Cuban
jammers be turned off in time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6889-USB, March 31 at 2227, folk/rock song at S3-S4,
not rechecked until 0038 April 1 when it`s off. Already at 2232* per
several logs of this pirate as Evergreen Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,52472.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7420, April 1 at 0043, Balkan music, good S9+20; at first
imagined Greece ex-9420 or mistake? EPT is usually silent early UT
Mondays; in fact this is the RRI Romanian service now, as spoken at
0054 and // 9790.

7375, April 1 at 0044, RRI English now here giving schedule during a
mailbag, much stronger than // 6040 at 0048 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST) See also SAO TOME 6080

** SAO TOME [and non]. 6080+, April 1 at 0548, VOA news magazine in
English, S9+20 but with fast SAH CCI. We already know Pinheira is the
one off-frequency, but now the collider is RRI in English, 300 kW to W
Europe and USWard at 0530-0600, also French 0500-0530, while VOA runs
04-07. How is this acceptable to HFCC?? Surprised RRI be the
understation, but that may change with conditions (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 31 at 2225, VOT in English, S8-S9 with flutter,
back on always-A-season frequency to North America at 22 instead of
5960 at 23 in Bs. No RTTY now, but 9830 fully occupied earlier in day:
we can only hope it will always quit by 2158. Will Emirler knock this
one off to 9830.7 at times too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U K. 7300, April 1 at 0040, sounds like BBCWS in science magazine,
now about LEO satellites, S9/+10. 0058 wrap up `Science in Axion`,
0059.5* chop off. HFCC shows Woofferton eastward this hour only.
Offers a decent chance to hear in its long-abandoned N American target
area (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 245 kHz, April 1 at 0612 UT, ND beacon FS is JBA! Is at
Rock, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, 400 watts per dxinfocentre. LW storm
noise level is unusually low so I take advantage for some sleepytime
beepery.

293 kHz, April 1 at 0615 UT, ND beacon FBY, which is 25 watts from
Fairbury, Nebraska.

329 kHz, April 1 at 0618, ND beacon PMV, 25 watts from Plattsmouth,
Nebraska (a flood area, I think). Also logged one from CANADA, q.v.

** U S A. 7490.15v, UT Mon April 1 at 0045, sacred choral music, S9+10
on `Encore` from Radio Tumbril via WBCQ. Brice Avery in Edinburgh is
disappointed in lack of listener response to his new WBCQ broadcasts,
in the form of QSL requests. Lack of any listing on the outdated WBCQ
program schedule, nor any publicity on its website, surely do not
help. Still showing for UT Mon 00-01 on 7490 is `Shoot the Darn

Tom Taylor, RIP.
7) Update to UT offset notations for Croatia, Germany, Greece,

Unless there's a major change anywhere, the next update will be in
late April. Best wishes and 73 (Alan Roe, March 30, DXLD)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, March 31 at 1401, Radio Martí is S9+20
unjammed, having just made the totally predictable A-season switch
from 13820, where the wall of noise remains. Something`s always wrong
at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, March 31 at 1425, China Plus relay in English on NF
for A-19, ex-15700; S9+20 and somewhat undermodulated as required.
Earlier, Wolfgang Bueschel had accumulated the A-19 sked for these
relays, via Quivicán site:

** NEW ZEALAND. 9630, March 31 at 0553, RNZI with C&W music on NF for
A-19, S9+10, the SSOB by fair, virtually the OSOB, and ex-25m is
essentially dead. No het, as R. Aparecida, Brasil, has been missing
from 9630.5v lately, but it`ll be a hetmess should it resume! A bad
pick for RNZI, now sked daily 0459-0658; then 5945, and from 1259 on
5980 as yet unchecked here. RNZ National program times within will
shift one UT hour later on April 7 when NZ go off wacky DST of UT +13.
At least that match DST offdate in Australiaparts now (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640, March 31 at 0610 UT, KZLS ``Enid`` is dead air; by
next check at 1400 UT has added a big hum, but still no programod
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 27185-AM, March 30 at 1731 on caradio, loop of ``Happy
Birthday to You`` by amateur pianist, occasionally interrupted, but
still/again going at 1930. Our local Enid CB pirate (Glenn Hauser, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7320-7325-7330, March 30 at 0551, DRM noise at S5, now RRI
as scheduled 0530-0600 in English, plus 0600-0630 German. (WINB is
also registered for same DRM frequency span at 07-09 M-F, 07-10
Sat/Sun) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA [non]. 7285-LSB, March 31 at 0441, VA5AA calling CQ
contest, before Radio Sonder Grense would be on here anyway, but still
no RSG at 0550, RSA SW gone for good. Others noted its finale on 3320
a few hours earlier. So NAmhams get a frequency back. QRZ.com shows
VA5AA is: Mason John Hnatiw in REGINA, SK S4V 1V2 Canada --- that`s
Witanh spelt backwards (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9515, March 31 at 0306, VOT English to N America at S9-S7.
I had no luck for the earlier broadcast March 30 at 22 or 23 on 9830
or 5960, so this is my first A-19 QSY confirmation. Surely this will
sidekick to 9515.7 at times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15180, March 31 at 1430, YL in SW/C Asian service? at

Uzbek this hour, 300 kW, 80 degrees from Woofferton UK, i.e. Radio

UNIDENTIFIED. 4774.975, March 31 after 0600, romantic? song at S7 vs
double-CODAR swooshes. I seldom pull any modulation here. First
thought is Brasil or Perú which insist on colliding with each other;
but if you believe Aoki sked, neither would be on between 04 & 07.
Instead, TWR English is on 4775 until 0700 --- but Manzini sunrise was
already at 0403 today, surely too late for them. So I refine the
frequency (and maybe there is a second carrier almost the same), which
points to S America. I found one report of TWR only 8 Hz low, while
here`s a typical comparison of Brasil and Perú by Carlos Gonçalves
from June 2016y: ``PERU 4774.946 R. Tarma, Tarma, 2232-2240, 02/6,
canções índias; 34433, QRM do Brasil [Congonhas] em 4774.914`` (Glenn

UNIDENTIFIED. 12031, March 30 at 1606 check, the extremely distorted

** CUBA. 15700, March 27 at 1431, China Plus relay is S9+30 but
suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13661.5 & 13738.8 approx., March 28 at 1443, buzzes centered
about 13700, more spurs out of that RHC in addition to the bigger ones
plus/minus 28.3 kHz. Then I have some modulation about 13634.7 during
apparent asymmetrical multiple spur carrier peaks. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, March 29 at 0530, RHC English S9+10 but JBM; 6060 is
S9+20/30 with good modulation but CCI and SAH from Algerian Qur`an via
FRANCE; 6100 S9+10/20 undermodulated; 6165 S9 but JBM; 5040 S9+20/30
loud; talk is about slavery. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, March 29 at 1415, China Plus relay is JBA S5-S7,
fadey, maybe also undermodulated. Usually this inbooms whatever the
modprob. Cuba is about all one can hear in the morns on 19m: 15825
WWCR & 15770 WRMI being JBA to JBA carriers. How about the RHCs? 15140
is steady S9 but suptorted; 15230 weaker S5-S6 and not distorted.
Can`t have everything. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, March 27 at 0612, R. Mali finally audible in this

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 9985, March 27 at 1534, RFA Korean is S9
-S5, from now confirmed refurbished Saipan antenna. I don`t hear any
jamming on this; does DPRK try? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, March 27 at 1500 UT, Classical KUCO-FM manager Brad
Ferguson, after Stardate, in pledge drive, says this is the first full
day they are on full power from new transmitter, 100 kW ERP, new
processor and antennas; and want reports about improved reception. He
asked me directly how it is in Enid. Transmitter power is 38 kW.

I checked around 19-20 UT as I was driving around. Altho the signal
seemed somewhat stronger overall, I had to tell him:

still picket-fencing
still subject to Vance aircraft multipath Doppler flutter
still blocked by noise at traffic signals
still not breaching stereo threshold, tho caradio shows ST; it blends
rather than separates
unlike 91.7 KOSU, 92.5 KOMA and many other OKC stations rock-solid

Later he explained that KUCO had been running only 20 kW ERP from old
transmitter; that side-mounting antenna on mast has been positioned
for max lobes up I-44 to the NE and down I-35 to the S. No doubt that
makes sense demographically. So away they go! That explains why there
is not much improvement here to the NNW, still a need for a
translator, if it could get a perfect signal input, perhaps from the
feedline to KBCW and KCSC relays.

EARLIER as installation was underway, Chris Stevens of RFSolutions
wrote, ``Once this is complete it will be pretty much the top of the
line radio site in terms of power, efficiency and technology. We are
running the best processors you can get into the best transmitter you
can want. Add in the efficiency of liquid cooled and it’s a perfect
combination with remote control capabilities that Captain Kirk would
be jealous of`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WORLD OF RADIO 1975, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 7490.15, UT Sat March 30 at 0050, WBCQ is playing a lot of
music, DJ Larry Will, Jane, et al., so is it really called Allan
Weiner Worldwide? Live timechex, said would go off at 0100 and
continue on 3265 ---- but 7490 did not cut off until 0113* after more
music. John Carver files his fuller report:

``Tonight's show started at 0001 after an audio clip from One Flew
Over the Cuckoos Nest. No voice overs during the theme song, then a
clip of Allan flying off the handle about moonbats then into music
which told me that Larry and Jane Will were doing the show this
evening. Larry said that Allan and Angela were off on super, secret
business for the station. Some talk of this week's special HAARP
broadcasts, then a short description of what HAARP was and consisted
of. Then a synopsis of all of the conspiracy theories involving HAARP.
Some more music.

Then some talk of Ken Nordine and playing one of his bits from the
record collection from the old WXM. A refreshing change from last
week`s Gloom and Doom show. A brief rundown about 3265 and the birth
of the Falling Star Network. Said that Monday thru Friday 0100 to 0500
the programming came from Area 51 and Area 51 programmers. Said they
are still running low power during this testing period and are still
experimenting with different antenna systems though no technical
details included.

Phone call at 0049 from Ramsey then into more music. Program was off
the air at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, March 28 at 0100, WRNO is back on after a few nights?
off, S9 but just barely modulated. March 29 at 0125, now it`s VG
S9+10/20 with fully modulated gospel huxter; 0522 hymn at S9+20 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2940.14, March 28 at 0540, harmonic with the most
modulation yet but still too weak, seems YL talking but can`t tell
language. At 0548 an OM instead. Have been presuming it`s 2 x
1470.07v, but since 2+9+4 = 15, a multiple of 3, this could also be a
third harmonic of 980+.
http://mwlist.org/mwoffset.php?khz=980
shows a few remote possibilities (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12031, March 27 at 1437, approx. peak of extremely
distorted blob at S5-S6; ``modulation`` cadence of some talk but
totally unreadable; compared to RHC and Martí frequencies, but NO
match. 12050 is a JBA carrier, presumably WEWN Spanish which unseems
source, but if so is putting most of its power out here.

12031 blob is still there at 2024 March 27 and now QRMing 12030 Spain
when tuned to LSB. 12050 has two weak signals presumably WEWN and
Ascension. So it`s on long hours and propagating, but not heard later

As you may have noticed, I have been producing these every week now
for many years without a break. It`s been my pleasure and passion to
do so. But I have been rather ill the past week, as some medical
issues are catching up with me, cutting into the very long hours I
needed to spend editing and typing at the desktop (in the long run,
this may be a good thing...)
I was already running about a week behind in completing a DXLD issue
after it was used as content for a WOR edition, while ideally, as once
was possible, it would be complete or almost complete by recording
time.
As of early UT March 27: DXLD 19-12 material as on WOR 1974 is still
in raw unedited form, not ready for publication.
I have been gathering material for DXLD 19-13 and WOR 1975, but that
process is not caught up yet. 1975 will not likely be ready for
broadcast even later on Wed Mar 27.
If I don`t lose too much more editing time, I am thinking of finishing
19-13 first to avoid falling further behind; and working on completing
19-12 later on the side when possible.
I know stations and listeners depend on and expect a new edition every
week but for the time being, I must ask people to stand by. Stations
please just repeat 1974 until 1975 is notified or uploaded.
One thing I can still do is DX, as I was already DXing while on the
bed most of the time! I will try to keep producing my log reports
without too much delay.
Thanks for your understanding --- Glenn
