** BRAZIL. 11727 approx., July 7 at 1342, RNA-FM is still/again on here for its morning broadcast, along with a weaker blob circa 11699 but with QRM from an AM on 11705. Not on proper frequency 11780-AM. Hyper Brazuguese at first thought maybe SBG, but then with music mixed; off already at 1400 recheck. Expect it back on by 2000, earlier if there still be any WC SBG worth broadcasting to brasileiros (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11845, July 7 at 1341, pulse jamming against nothing, a frequency Radio Martí abandoned several years ago. Something`s always wrong at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. Bryan Clark, NZ, now confirms my off-frequency reading of 4920.761 kHz for this one, but we still have no firm ID for Perú, OAZ9A, Ecos del Alba.

Bryan says on the WOR iog: ``Possible New Peruvian on SW --- This station observed here in New Zealand since 0410 UT tune in today (7 July) on 4920.78 kHz with non-stop Latin American vocals - have recorded it for analysis but no evident identifications heard as yet. Good clear signal past 0635. Bryan, Mangawhai, Northland, NZ``

Via HCDX there is more on this originating from Rafael Rodríguez in Colombia, via Daniel Wyllyans at 1512 UT July 7 (I have added some acute accents as RR employs grave ones except on his own name):

``Hola Daniel Wyllyans X Elizia Martins, ayer en la noche estuve escuchando la emisora hasta pasadas las 0400 UT, con música sin parar de varios ritmos: Ranchera, vallenatos, salsa, baladas y huaynos peruanos, sin identificaciones o dando la hora. Según la información que encontró el colega Marcos Rodríguez y revisando la página web del Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones del Perù, la frecuencia 4920 no estaría asignada, pero no significa nada ya que la información "oficial" siempre está desactualizada, pero el indicativo (OAZ9A) y en especial el nùmero 9 indicaría que la emisora está localizada en algún lugar de los departamentos de Amazonas o San Martín, aunque la direcciòn postal que aparece en el anuncio menciona la ciudad de Trujillo.

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. Correxion: SIBC frequency in last report should have read 5020, not 5030! Fixed:

5020, 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?

Tnx to Ron Howard on the WOR iog, who adds: ``July 6, also briefly noted extended SIBC (5020) broadcast; still on at 1332+, with extremely faint audio (music); earlier at 1225, had carrier, but not even any faint audio. Decent signal strength, but with little or no modulation, is really unusable for listening. Ron California`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, July 7 at 1400, WRMI Saturday-only extension containing Blalock the Blaster --- formerly on WBCQ only, the guy who says a few words in normal voice, then yells incomprehensibly every few seconds as if suffering from Tourette`s Syndrome. It`s beyond me why anystation would willingly pollute the airwaves thus --- must be the $$$. Formal name of show is `Full Gospel Hour`. Similar outbursts are heard on WRMI 9395 now from Brother HyStairical and his own diehard psychophants in live Sabbath morning service, but Terry Blalock is the masterblaster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
