** ANGUILLA. 6090, UT Monday Aug 27 at 0048, no signal from Caribbean Beacon, which is normally active on UT Mondays and Tuesdays only. I think I did hear 11775 earlier during the day on Sunday Aug 26 as I tuned around, but not logged. That should also be on daytime Aug 27. See also USA: WWCR 5935 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9630.5, Aug 27 at 0051, very poor signal in Brazuguese, R. Aparecida, one of few signals on band during propagation disturbance, stronger than 9395 & 9955 WRMI degraded to JBA carriers, but less than 9570, CRI via Albania at S4-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 6173.92, Aug 27 at 0049, JBA carrier on the signature off-frequency of Radio Tawantinsuyo, which Anker Petersen recently confirmed active using a South American SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA [and non]. 11904.9, August 27 at 0055, SLBC is S1 but some S Asian music audible, better than I usually hear it from *0031v. It also cuts off early during song at 0058:09*. Strange trans-polar propagation as not yet recovered from major geomag storm. Not much else on 25m except 11780 Brasil the SSOB at S5-S7 but undermodulated, and stronger than any attenuated Cubans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1944 monitoring: confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485-CUSB, August 26:
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2018/08/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_26.html
1030-1100 on 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, weak to fair; Wrong frequency announcement:"...HLR SW Sce on 7265 kHz", instead of 9485!``

Major geomagnetic storm and aftermath made the already weak 7780 WRMI a JBA carrier or less, for the scheduled WOR times, so unconfirmed Sunday August 26 at 2130 and UT Monday August 27 at 0130.5; but the latter also on 5850, still propagating very well and confirmed there. (The normally inbooming other 7s from WRMIBS, 7570 & 7730 are also quite weakened.) WOR also confirmed UT Monday August 27 starting at 0302 on Area 51 webcast; 0327 check of 5129.8 WBCQ finds a JBA carrier. 9955 WRMI was JBA carrier too, virtually inaudible, so not checked further, but 0330 WOR confirmed during WRMI webcast at 0345, and also at 0427 for the immediate webcast-only playback from 0400 --- but the webcast audio is way low, barely registering but quite audible with volume all the way up. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1945?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1945?]

** U S A. 7570, Aug 26 at 2337, surprised to hear WRMI in Spanish here, gospel huxter. Supposed to be Overcomer from 2300, and has been only in English whenever on. Maybe Fámily Radio which this hour is supposed to be on 5010 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5935, Aug 27 at 0045, WWCR with PMS from TUN, but mixed with crackling which splatters up to 10 kHz plus and minus. Meanwhile, Anguilla 6090 is missing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, Aug 27 at 0059, dead air, then YL opening gospel huxter show from North Carolina, but hard to understand very lofi modulation, then cutting out and in. S9+50 signal anyway from WWRB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 830, UT Monday Aug 27 at 0108 UT, Spanish tropi-rap (real term for particular genre unknown), 0111 YL ID as ``Fabulosa, 830 y 97.5``, which means it`s the expected WFNO Norco LA (address in Metairie), 5000/750 watts U4, and the FM is mere translator K248BB. Totally dominating channel, no sign of WCCO MN, too far into the subauroral zone with high K-index (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 840, UT Monday Aug 27 at 0106 UT, opening headlines teasing `Perspective` from ABC, YL anchor, stingers. Haven`t heard this weekly newsmagazine in ages. Must be WHAS Louisville KY, perhaps a reliable time for it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, re my unID jazz station August 26 at 0635 UT, Greg Hardison, CA, replies: ``Glenn, anything is possible from WAZX Smyrna, GA. Remote monitoring has shown this thing to be on one day, silent the next, then on again, et al. -- with programming in Spanish, Vietnamese, continuous Classic Rock, et al, et al. Nothing is keeping WAZX from trying its hand at Jazz (which would be a notable improvement to the highly religious/right wing Atlanta AM dial); the 50 kW daytime authorization does get out rather well. Just sayin'. - GREG HARDISON`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
