** ANGUILLA. 11775, June 3 at 1426, PMS of TUN is on CB, as consistently Sundays, while quite sporadic the rest of the week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, June 3 at 0556, RHC in wrong language, Spanish instead of English, and better modulated than the remaining English on 6100, 6060, 6000, 5040 --- where the program repeat cycle is running early, already `This Day in History`, news headlines, and news in detail at 0557. I wonder if whole show was like 59 minutes, thus repeating earlier and earlier, hour by hour? As expected, 5040 is off by 0602, despite having misled listeners to think another hour on it would ensue. Programming out of synch with transmission. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, June 3 at 0551, Radio Verdad on with hymn at S9, despite absence 5 hours earlier.

Also, Stephen Luce in Houston TX: ``Glenn, regarding your non-log of TGAV: At a check around 0510 UT June 3, Radio Verdad was almost booming into Houston, as strong a signal as I've ever heard from the station. Transmitter at full power or a slight increase? Or just very favorable propagation? Either way, quite surprising. Chiquimula is 1,115 miles from my QTH`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 9370, Sunday June 3 at 1417, WWRB S9+20 with African music, so much of the time Radio Munansi has bought occupied by this. Much later in the next ~6 hours, they`ll get down to Luganda business. But at 1749, still/again African choral music at S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 CUSB, June 3

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday June 3 at 0552, WTWW-2 is back on with that weekly talk show, guest Michael from California looking for Moonies (Lunar life). 0558 host name sounds like Dave Flooie (?), on `Southern Talk at Midnight`. Unlike 168 hours ago when ToH break included commercials, this time filled with songs, ``Good Morning Sunshine`` running past 0600, then another with no ID or ads, modulation cutting off and on. 0607 resumes with phone 615-680-8028, main subject to be chemtrail conspiracies; acknowledges late Art Bell for pioneering such talk radio. 0609 audio suddenly cuts off, dead air; and I turn it off. Is this networked to any other station? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 570, June 2 at 1800 UT on caradio, pronounced SAH of 200/minute, or three-and-one-third Hz, between KLIF Dallas and always-there-by-groundwave understation, WNAX Yankton SD.

Per the MW Offset list at
http://www.mwlist.org/mwoffset.php?khz=570
570 569,9970 USA KLIF (Dallas, TX) 2010-08-29
570 570,00078 USA WNAX (Yankton, SD) 2018-03-22

i.e. KLIF 3 Hz low as of almost 8 years ago, and WNAX recently 0.78 Hz high, so a fairly good match to my measurement. City-to-city distance Yankton-Enid: 722 km = 449 statute miles; from the SE corner, the only SD station making it here on daytime GW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 15565, June 3 at 1753, S3-S5 in E African language. HFCC confirms it`s VR, SMG, in Amharic this semihour, amid a bunch of African languages with variable azimuths at 1530-1830. 15570 used to be the VR frequency around here, but not any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
