** BRAZIL. 11727, Saturday July 7 at 2037, no signal from RNA-FM, nor 11780 RNA-AM. Jorge Freitas, Feira de Santana, Bahia, had replied a few minutes earlier to my previous report: ``Sim, infelizmente de novo com problemas t├ęcnicos enchendo de sinais esp├║rios desde o dia 05/07`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, July 8 at 0111, RHC very undermodulated compared to // 6165 in English. Something`s always wrong at RHC; at least both are in correct language this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 7425, July 8 at 0126, 0131 and 0147, poor signal at S5-S6 with dead air, at least no modulation detectable. Only listee is VIRI`s multi-hour Arabic service, 1730-0230 via Zahedan 500 kW, 289 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, July 8 at 0107, rock music at S9+5/10, 0113 Wolverine Radio ID; 0128 SSTV, 0131 more music but it may be the next station. I have not been listening continuously.

Wolverine`s theme tonight was songs about sky. This thread combines Wolverine Radio and WDDR. No one seems to have drawn a line between them, so possibly same transmitter?,44123.0.html

6950-USB, July 8 at 0135, live DJ announcement completely unlike Wolverine, something about Sea of Joy. He will check for requests. Was setting up sponsors for some ads, not done yet. 0136 WDDR ID. Is S9+5, about same level as Wolverine had been, but frequency seems just a smidgen higher on the PL-880 for best USB resolution, no carrier from either to be precise. 0139 faux ad for ``Come on down to the Fungus-side`` (-site?, -cide?), another ID for ``WDDR, Drunken DJ Radio`` (he doesn`t sound drunk; and say, what`s the difference between drunk and drunken? Just a level of politeness?) 0145 another ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6927-USB, July 8 at 0137, irregular percussive tones, tuning up? 0141 now some hard rock music, S9+5. King Kong Radio per this thread, also on much earlier at 2241 July 7, intermittently,44114.0.html

** U S A. 15185, Saturday July 7 at 2038, VOA VG with language lesson for French, such as ``Where are you from?``; off at 2100*. This frequency in use only one hour a week, Sat & Sun 2030-2100 from GB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1937 monitoring: Alan Gale, England, reports on the Saturday July 7 at 1431 broadcast: ``Hi Glenn, World of Radio was again audible on HLR's 6190 kHz frequency today, but fairly weak up until around 1438 UT, when it then came up in strength again and was very listenable right through to the end. Alan.``

Confirmed Saturday July 7 at 2328 check just in time, the 2300 on WRMI 7780, very poor. Not confirmed UT Sunday July 8 at 0228, which would have been just in time for the 0200 repeat on 7780, but instead someone else in English, not sure what. Then checking the WRMI skedgrids, I see that 7780 at 0200-0230 is no longer on the System D or any other program schedule, altho the transmission grid still shows Radio Ukraine without specifying days of week; had been Tue-Sat only.

Also confirmed UT Sunday July 8 at 0336 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 16 minutes into show so started circa 0320, poor in noise level. Next:

Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 0400 WRMI webcast only, non-direxional
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1938?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1938?]

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

** U S A. 15809.937, Saturday July 7 at 2041, WTWW-3 with classic rock from 1956y, soon Ted announcement that due to popular demand, portions of `History of Rock & Roll` from July 4 are being repeated this weekend. // 5085, WTWW-2 is also on but VP S9 in daytime noise level. And this time, 9475, WTWW-1 is on air too with SFAW.

15809.9 // 5085 are still on at 0113 UT Sunday July 8, with History of Rock, Dick Cavett interviewing someone, instead of `Theatre Organ in the Ozarx`! Now 5085 is loud and clear, but so is 15809.9 at S9+20, in fact the OSOB! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, UT Sunday July 8, WWRB is S9+35 with horrible hum, distortion, and unstable carrier, spurs out to 5070, in some kind of talkshow; not rechecked until 0149 when it`s off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
