** CHINA. 11100, Oct 11 at 1328 JBA Chinese; 10920 JBA carrier. Both
are Aoki-listed CNR-1 *jammed Sound of Hope frequencies. No exhaustive
bandscan for more today, so these will have to suffice (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 5040, Oct 11 at 0611, RHC is still on at S9+20 but dead air.
Other English frequencies: 6000 still on but undermodulated; 6100
S9+30/40 somewhat suptorted; 6165 off. Something`s always wrong at RHC

** CUBA. 13700, Oct 11 at 1320, RHC is off while 13740 is on, so no
spurs today --- wait, at 1324, 13700 is on late or after a break,
producing FMish spurblobs circa 13767, JBA on 13838, trace on 13637.
The F# tone is best heard in FM mode only. 13700 itself is
undermodulated and only S9+10 while 13740 is fully modulated at S9+30.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 9570, Oct 11 at 1401, CRI plus English relay is still on
late; so what about 11880? Also on but dead air until brings up
modulation at 1404; then I check 9570 again and it has gone off.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CUBA. 9615-9670, Oct 11 at 1406, approx. buzz field range out of
9640 RHC; worst peaks circa 9631 and 9649. Something`s always wrong at

** MEXICO. 710.00, Oct 11 at 1157, W&M in Spanish discussing crime
news in Chihuahua; no ID or break at ToH, 6:02 timecheck at 1202 UT.
Nor any national anthem which most XEs play around 6 am local. It`s
XEDP, Ciudad Cuauhtémoc. Same W still audible at 1242 with 6:43 TC.
IRCA Log says has been off-frequency -185 Hz for years, but not now,
nor has it been lately. Very close to the QRM, KGNC/KCMO. Believe this
is one I researched a few years ago in FCC database as having two
different transmitter sites, so presumed one of them is seldom-used
off-frequency, backup? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING IIGEST)

** U S A. Remember, first SW airings of new WORLD OF RADIO 2003 should
be on RMI Friday at 2200 on 9955; UT Saturday 0130 on 5010, 5850, 7780

** U S A. 9455, Oct 11 at 0608, WRMI-8 is still on with Brother Scare.
As part of great expansion of BS hours on WRMI, #8 is now running 24
hours with BS at all times except previously active: 19-21 M-F APS
Radio; and 01-03 UT Thu only with Hal Turner. This disregards other
stations` usage of 9455: as of Oct 11, HFCC still shows WRMI only at
01-05; other times Saudi Arabia, Guam, Taiwan, China, Japan.
9455 also Oct 11 at 1355 with instrumental gospel music, something
else? No, // 9395 and soon BS resumes speaking. Both are on 355 degree
antennas, wasteful but BS has money to burn for WRMI.

7780, WRMI-1 is now also scheduled 24 hours, including TOMBS at 03-14
and 17-20. VP at 1409 sounds like BS, probably also this hour on
weekdays since SMTV runs on Sat, Sun only. BTW, We also see where
RAE`s missing German broadcast has gone: 7780 at 16-17, not specified
but presumably M-F only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1110, Oct 11 at 1250 UT, talk in S Asian language, best with
KFAB nulled. Of course, it`s KVTT Mineral Wells (The Metroplex) TX,
listed merely as ``Asian`` format. Don`t hear this often; is 50 kW
daytimer but now would be reduced to only 39 kW Critical Hours. D4 in
NRC AM Log means different antenna pattern during CH than in daytime

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Oct 11 before LSR
of 1235 UT; first check at 1158 on 774 finds a good one from the NW.

At 1204-1223, bandscan on the DX-398, so I can DF whether NW from E
Asia or WSW from Australia/New Zealand+. Some without an angle were
too weak to tell, or more likely an even mix of both. In some cases a
beat could be heard between stations a few Hz apart (2).

594-NW, 603, 612-NW, 657, 693-NW, 702(2)-WSW>NW, 747-NW, 756-NW,
774-NW, 792(2)-WSW, 828-NW, 837, 864-NW, 873-NW, 882(2)-WSW>NW,
945-NW, 972-NW, 1035-WSW, 1044-NW, 1053-NW, 1098-W, 1116-NW,
1125(2)-WSW>NW, 1134-NW, 1143-NW>WSW, 1197-NW, 1287-NW, 1314-NW,
1332-NW, 1422-WSW, 1557-NW, 1566-NW. There could have been even more,
obscured by splash from North Americans 1 or 2 kHz away.

At 1232 I switch to the R75 with E-W longwire, so no DFing but a bit
more gain: 774 has trace of Japanese audio. Then sweep at 1234-1240,
JBA carriers on: 891, 882, 873, 864, 846, 837, 828, 774, 756, 747,
738, 729, 702(2), 693, 666, 657, 612, 594, 567, 558; this spanned LSR
1235, until 1238. Also after sunrise: 1125, 1134, 1143, 1566 at 1240
Oct 11 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9345-9350-9355, Oct 11 at 1356-1400+, sounds like DRM
noise, S9-S7 with some fading. At first suspected NF for WINB as not
heard on 15115-15120-15125, but this is full 10-kHz, not WINB`s hybrid
5+5 with data on lower half. Nothing in HFCC or Aoki to account for
this in DRM or AM. Later at 1505, I do detect WINB DRM around 15117;
and by now maybe a trace left on 9350. Wonder if it`s one of the DVR
(Far East Russia) experiments? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
