** CANADA [and non]. 328-MCW kHz, April 2 at 0636 UT, ND beacon dash
and YTL, which is 1000 watts from Big Trout Lake, Ontario.

335-MCW kHz, April 2 at 0635 UT, NDB dash and YLD, 1000 watts from
Chapleau, Ontario; mixing with BV, 25 watts from Batesville, Arkansas
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, April 2 at 1251 UT, Trenton Military still
hasn`t reset its own clock, not 60, but 61 minutes slow announcing
``time: 1150``. But then wx condx timestamped 1200 from Calgary, Cold
Lake. I`ve often found CHR missing, not sure if bad propagation,
curtailed sked, or problems, tho it does take breaks during every
hour; 6754-USB also heard at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13795, April 2 at 1256, Chinesish music S2-S3, continues
right thru hourtop. It`s CRI Malay service via Kunming site at
1230-1330. Of course Malaysia is no longer on UT +7.5 but 8.0 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 11825, April 2 at 1257, big Chinese vs Chinese radio war
collision, i.e. CNR1 jammer vs VOA via Thailand this hour. Since this
is propagating, I am again encouraged to search for the WOOB CNR1
jammers mostly against Sound of Hope which used to occupy multiple
slots in the 10.8-11.2 and 12.8-13.2 MHz ranges --- not a one, except:
10960, VP only S1-S3. Aoki shows this one is vs SOH relaying RFA; but
I suspect SOH itself is no longer on multiple peanut-power channels,
at least not at these hours. Either that or no longer subject to
high-priority jamming, megawatts vs watts.

Now at 1338 April 2 there`s another inband collision making a SAH on
11785, which is VOA Chinese via Philippines (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13626 & 13774 approx., April 2 at 1327, weak spurblobs with
no readable Spanish program audio from RHC 13700 S9+20; notable for
the giveaway tones again close to F# above Cmiddle = 370 Hz, further
displaced than usual, about 74 kHz; so I also seek X2 = 148 away
second-orders, which are only traces circa 13492 and 13848. This time
the tone is more obvious in AM than FM tuning. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, April 2 at 1340, RHC Spanish is S9+10 but distorted/
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, April 2 at 1339, Kurdish? talk S4-S6; and
11540 at same time, Turkish? music S5-S7, as Dengê Welat and the TRT
jammer can`t seem to get together; or possibly vice versa (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 17880, April 2 at 1349, Chinese lesson in French, S9 the SSOB
by far beyond JBA Sa`udis, q.v. It`s CRI this hour via Bamako II per
Aoki/NDXC. In that, Bamako I refers only to R. Mali itself on 5995,
9635. However there are two CRI relay transmitters, none designated
Bamako III (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 710, April 2 at 1206, choral Mexican NA ends and full
sign-on? ID ONLY for XHDP, 89.7, 10 kW, La Ranchera de Cuauhtémoc,
Chihuahua, street address; no mention of this nonentity AM XEDP listed
as 7000/100 watts. Then live YL announcer with 6-past timecheck and
right into Low German laconic-sounding gospel huxter. This
out-of-place language is a regular on XEDP. Not as in IRCA Log, ``once
aired German programming at times``.

Earlier from 1200 were Mex NAs on 770, 730, 720, 700, 690 at least.
It`s been months since I`ve been up to check these at sunrise which
here today would be at 1216 UT. Most of Mexico not already on DST will
suffer from it from April 4, pushing these events one real UT hour
earlier. Except Sonora which stays on MST UT -7 yearound to match alta
Sonora, a.k.a. Arizona, EUA (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11880, April 2 at 1402, S7-S9 German in strange accent,
but mentions Bukarescht and Rumänien, so obviously RRI as sked this
hour, 300 kW at 300 degrees from Ziganeschti, also USward far beyond
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615 & 17705, April 2 at 1348 JBA carriers, the only
ones on band besides much stronger 17880, see MALI. The pair of course
correlate with Riyadh which per WRTH is now known as SRI = Saudi Radio
International, or SBA = Saudi Broadcasting Authority, no longer the
legacy BSKSA = Broadcasting Service of the Kingdom of Sa`udi Arabia.
And there are no longer any RIY entries in HFCC as they have
withdrawn; something to hide? Aoki/NDXC shows these frequencies: 17615
at 0855-1157 & 1250-1557; 17705 at 1155-1457. Also 17895 but unheard
today: 0255-0800 & 1155-1457. BTW this 17615 does not seem to be
offset plus as had been for ages (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 7570, April 2 at 1353, really cute song in Chinese,
loud & clear WRMI at S9+20. It`s Supreme Master TV audiotrack, of
course; wish they would play more music; applause at end, evidently
from a live event, English announcement, more traditional music with
percussion, but chopped off at 1359 for ``Everglades`` ID and off the
air; how rude. It would be helpful to announce what frequency be next,
as SMTV is 24h on a variety of channels, one at a time. Current
skedgrid shows:
0100-0700 9455
0700-1000 9395
1000-1100 9455
1100-1400 7570
1400-2000 15770
2000-2200 9395
2200-0100 5800
Indeed I figured 15770 would be next but this early, and often much
later, it`s JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 13635, April 2 at 1254, Turkish talk good S9, SSOB except
for 13740 Cuba, but cuts off at 1256*; sked until 1258 per Aoki. What
frequency follows? No longer on 11815. Uplooked later, it`s 9840 from
1300, both on 310 degree beam to W Europe but same beyond toward us.
Not checked yet but 9840 is also registered all-day but more so on
weekends, for WHRI, which however may have closed down: see USA. TRT
13635 *much* better than 15450 JBA carrier for English on same 500 kW
beam at 1230-1320v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on
voluntary support: thanks this week to Benn Kobb, Arlington VA,
for a check to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702

One may also contribute, not necessarily in US funds,
via PayPal to woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. As noted last night in my ZAMBIA 5915 log, WHRI absent tho
scheduled on 5920, ditto 7385, making us wonder if WHRI have shut down
totally at end of B-20; after all, the KBS relay moved to Greenville.
WHRI sale to WBCQ still pending FCC approval? Maybe WHR have had it
with SW.

Alan Holder also notes to the WOR iog today: ``World Harvest Radio
short wave no more? All short wave schedules and reference to World
Harvest Radio have now been deleted from the "Family Broadcasting
Corporation" web site. But there are links to World Harvest Television
as well as to "Real Family TV" and the other domestic US radio
stations run by FBC. However, I found a web page with a donation form
for World Harvest Radio short wave. I guess they forgot to remove
this. Alan Holder, G4ZBH, Isle of Wight, U.K.``

Just in case, FCC A-21
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbyfmo.php?seas=A21&fmor=FCC
still has 50 LeSea! entries. Search on that and highlight all for
further frequencies to check. Of course the registrations already far
exceeded axual usage. Much of it had been in use only on weekends, so
check Saturday and Sunday. It`s complex, but here are all the possible
frequencies in first time order without the details: 5920, 7315, 7385,
9505, 9825, 9710, 9840, 9605, 17815, 21610, 11750, 13785, 17510. The
lower ones allegedly resume later in the UT days (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. For the first time in months since last fall, I`m awake
pre-sunrise and instead of trying to resleep, turn on and tune in for
trans-Pacific JBA MW carriers, April 2 at 1156, finding only 774, 747
and 828 from strongest to weakest, obviously the NHK2 big guns from
Japan, i.e. 500 kW from Akita and Sapporo, only 300 kW from Osaka,
respectively. But file as unID, since no modulation detected; and on
R75 longwire, so no DFing. Tried for ToH timechimes at 1200 on 774,
but too much splash from 780 KSPI Stillwater OK and/or an XE on 770.
Today`s Enid sunrise 1216 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
