** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, Saturday July 7 at 0240, surprised to hear R. Tirana via WRMI, which is supposed to be at 0200-0230, then Oldies. What happened? Change, or error? Press review in English about Albania, 0242 Albanian music break. VG S9+20/10 but with selective fading distortion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA [and non]. 6134.866V, July 6 at 0053, weak carrier waVering with music; at 0101, now it`s 6134.886V, or is it Aparecida, Brasil? No, ad yelled in Spanish, and not // 9630+.

6134.87V, July 7 at 0158 vocoder song, no het at first. 0202 there are two carriers very close, one definitely Andean music, so Radio Santa Cruz, not Aparecida. At 0208 no more modulation but still two carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11727 approx., July 6 at 2009, music on filthy distorted FM spur, so naturally first suspect 11760 Cuba [q.v.] but no match in French talk. How about 11860, RHC Portuguese? Not either. Fades up to S9 at 2015 making the FM more legible with less crackle, so I can tell it`s in Brazuguese talk about the weather. Now I bet it`s RNA, which has NO signal on 11780, but in the past has gone totally out of whack like this. It`s not a spur, per se, since there is no such fundamental, and if there were it might have a match on the hi side circa 11833. This expands roughly 11723-11730 but clearest tuned to 11727; mentions Amazonas, 2020 timecheck and song. Then I find a // blob circa 11700, almost as strong, more mentions of Amazonas and about program coming up at 6 [21 UT]; finally at 2029 definite ID for ``Radio Nacional da Amazônia`` in passing. If 11780 still has anything to do with it, there might have been another one 27 kHz away, circa 11754 obscured by Cuba. What next? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13768 & 13633 approx., July 6 at 1302, RHC 13700 has just come on and dragging with it parasitic FMish spurs, but not a whole bunch of them, only weaker second-orders recognizable circa 13836 and 13566. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, July 6 at 2009, RHC in French, I notice while checking out the 25mb for RNA Brasil blobs. But 11760 is supposed to be in a break between 18 and 21! I would not be surprised if RHC 19-20 English was also on 11760 as happened a few days ago, and/or 15140. Now RHC French is properly on 15140 and // 11760, or a reverb apart. 11760 suffers from a bit of a squeal, or is it QRM from another RNA blob? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 7215, July 6 at 1300, presumed Shiokaze via JSR, JAPAN, is very poor vs weak ham on 7215-LSB, and strong ham on 7218-LSB. Ron Howard says this is their new frequency, ex-6165 where I wasn`t sure I was hearing them yesterday. Says China is on 6165, but no broadcast QRM on 7215 now (Glen Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 4920.761, July 7 at 0122 past 0201, JBA carrier also vs storm noise, less than 4925 Brasil. I am checking out the unID/new Peruvian reported by Daniel Wyllyans as ``4920``, in HCDX:

``4920 kHz UNID (Banda Tropical) Passando música andina e salsa. No inicio do vídeo a mulher fala "Salsa" às 0144 UT, 04 de Julho 2018/ Esperei até hoje 05 Julho ficando na escuta porém não houve nehuma ID, sòmente tocando músicas. Fiz um rápido estudo da banda tropical em 4920 kHz. Houve no passado a Radio Quito (Equador), Radio Caracas YVKR (Venezuela) e Radio RICA (Radio Informaciones de Centro America), (Nicarágua). Chequei o streaming de áudio ao vivo dessas emissoras e nenhuma não deu o mesmo resultado. Como tocam muita Salsa a suspeita vai para Colômbia. Talvez um pirata? Mas quem teria um transmissor de alta potência? Porque aqui cobriu a PBS Xizang em boa parte dos horários. Cuba também tem salsa más acho que esse transmissor está em algum lugar dos Andes (América do sul).

RX: Yaesu FRG 8800, Antena: Beverage simples. Daniel Wyllyans, Sítio Estrela do Araguaia, Nova Xavantina, MT, Brasil, 0450 UT July 5, Hard-Core-DX mailing list``

and the next day:

``Reportagem UNID 4920 kHz Suspeito (Perú) --- Hoje 05 de junho [sic = julho] fiquei na escuta na maior parte de 10 UT se [até?] 14 UT. Novamente não houve identificação; o sinal é bem forte inclusive 11 da manhã em meu QTH. As 11 da manhã sòmente estavam chegando em ondas tropicais de 60 metros as emissoras Brasileiras e Peruanas, sinal fraco.

Já está decidido, as músicas são Peruanas mesmo tendo a salsa. Mencionado pelo dexista do Chile, Claudio Galaz. O segundo motivo que me foi enviando uma foto pelo dexista Argentino Marcos Rodriguez que torna o Peru mais suspeito ainda... Veja no Link:

*RADIO INTERNACIONAL "ECOS DEL ALBA" / OAZ9A / 4920 khz (60 metros)*

Mesmo sendo uma emissora gospel, eles podem sim tocar músicas de bom gosto Peruana. Enviei um email na esperança de confirmarem se
é a mesma emissora Peruana. Claudio Galaz

A musica é peruana. A musica é Huayno andino ou serrano?
Daniel Wyllyans PT9008SWL

Claudio Galaz, Muito obrigado para sua explanação e informação forte 73 e bons DX. MarcosDX

Buena pesquisa de Claudio. La cantante es Esvilda Avila. Peruana ella

Claudio Galaz
Marcos, aquella música es popular. En el norte de Chile suele escucharse por los migrantes peruanos, razón por la que ubico el genero.

Sí lo sé, y todo vale para ir filtrando. Los hermanos de Brasil al Sur
comparten con nosotros el Chamamé?

73 (Daniel Wyllyans,
0209 UT July 6, Hard-Core-DX mailing list``

The blogspot contains the same info, still not clear who says what?
A very rough translation appears on WRTH FB, sic:

``Reporting Units 4920 Khz suspect (Peru) Today June 05 I was listening for most of 10 UTC IF 14 UTC again there was no id the signal is very strong even 11 am in my qth. At 11 in the morning it was only arriving in tropical waves of 60 meters the Brazilian and Peruvian broadcasters. It's already decided the songs are Peruvian even having salsa. Mentioned by dexista of Chile Claudio Galaz. The second reason I was sending a photo by the Argentine Dexista Marcos Rodriguez that makes Peru more suspicious yet... see the link:
International Radio "Echoes of dawn" / OAZ 9 a 4,920 Khz (60 metres) Even being a gospel broadcaster they can play songs Good Peruvian taste. I sent an email hoping to confirm if It's the same Peruvian broadcaster. Claudio Galaz The music is Peruvian. The music is huayno Andean Or Serrano. Daniel Wyllyans Claudio Galaz many thanks for your explanation and strong information 73 and good dx. Marcosdx Good research of Claudio. The singer is esvilda Avila. Peruvian she
Claudio Galaz Marcos, that music is popular. In Northern Chile it is often heard by Peruvian migrants, which is why I place the genre. Marcosdx1 Yes I know and everything is worth filtering. The brothers from Brazil to the south share with us the chamamé. Other names to be mentioned by our report from 1 LISTEN: Pedro Freitas / round of dxers
73 Daniel Wyllyans``

Looking at it 0450 UT July 7, nothing additional in the blog. The YT audiovideo of the music shows the FRG-8800 tuned to 4920, but apparently in AM mode. My question is whether the precise frequency is where I was pulling the JBA carrier, 4920.761? If it`s on pre-sunrise, reception should be better then.

It`s not every day --- or every year! That a new SW station appears in Latin America --- or anywhere --- so this should be of extreme DX interest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5030, July 6 at 1228, JBA carrier, more than on 5040 & 5050 presumed India, so SIBC is still on air past 1200, but dead air or programming? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905v, July 7 at 0200, JBA carrier while there was none at 0158. SLBC now re-signs on at this time. Need a little more to discern how far off the timesignal be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, July 6 at 2000, VOA French with song in English, but why isn`t there news on the hour? VG S9+20/10. // 17530 weaker S9-S6. During this semihour only, both frequencies, so no problem trying to remember which. And both 250 kW, 94 degrees from GB, only difference being an 896 and an 883 antenna, respectively per HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1937 monitoring: not confirmed, Friday July 6 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330v, instead BS continues. So our two-week run at that day/time is over. So far the 2330 on 9330 slot contained WOR this week only on Wednesday. Next:

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 7490, UT Saturday July 7 at 0055, I`ve been out & about so only catch the last few minutes of `Allan Weiner Worldwide` on WBCQ, which runs slightly over until 0102 abrupt switch without missing a beat to Blalock the Blaster, quite jarring as always. John Carver heard it all:

``Listening on 7490 this evening. Program started just a few seconds early this evening. Allan and Angela in the studio this evening. Opening comments on the weather in Maine this week. Ninety-five yesterday and fifty-nine today. Which prompted talk about weather oddities in Northern Maine which got Allan talking about Maine in the mid eighteen hundreds. Then into the middle of the last century concerning railroads and highways which morphed into how automobiles work, especially ignition systems.

First and only phone call at 0018 from Pirate Joe. Talk quickly changed into a discussion of digital hacking. Referred to most things being digital today and how everything can be hacked now and that computers can take digital footage and create images of anyone saying anything which would destroy free speech as it would be impossible to tell what was true and what wasn't. Very long and interesting discussion. Quick prayer and the show was off the air at 0102. A much tamer show this week. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Saturday July 7 at 0211, WTWW-2 is S9+40 with `History of Rock & Roll` about 1954y, so apparently re-running the series first airing July 4. Also a JBA carrier on 15810, presumably // WTWW-3 not propagating. WTWW-1 is OFF again, neither 5830 nor 9475; but who cares about that SFAW nonsense? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
