** BRAZIL. 11749.875, March 13 at 0649, presumed RVM, VP S4/S6
measured direct. Yet same date, exactly same time, Wolfgang Bueschel
reported: ``11750 two bad signal mixture at 06.49 UT: CHN CNR
Shijazhuang and co-channel Brazilian Voz Missionaria (// 5940.024
kHz) on odd 11749.742 kHz - likely?`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Correxion to last report: the time 1610 should have read 1510
- as we struggle to adjust to stupid DST. Hope not many more!

13700, March 12 at 1500 UT ex-1600, the next repeat of Esperanto
confirmed also earlied an hour, including this extra frequency still
going at 1510 in addition to 11760, the only one on the imaginary
opening announcement, and to 15140 which has really been // for years
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13680, Sunday March 12 at 2144, RHC on here in Spanish, //
much stronger 11760. Not Esperanto. Unknown yet when and where the
third airing may really be. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, March 12 at 2239, RHC is suptorted = modulation
suppressed and distorted; think it`s Spanish but not positive.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 9700, March 13 at 0352, RHC music on new frequency,
S9+30/40 direct, not // 6000 English so presumed Spanish service. Was
about to match it to 6165 when that went off. 6060 is dead air at
0354, warmup? At 0357, 9700 closing RHC Spanish, mixing with VOTurkey
IS and IDs in English! Then off, clear for Turkey, q.v. (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 6060, UT Mon March 13 at 0644, RHC DX program `En Contacto`
underway with Morse/musical theme, S9+10/20, only 49m frequency on,
and // 11670, S9/+10 undermodulated. Website ProgramaciĆ³n page
displays outdated transmission sked! NO details of individual
programs. Maybe repeat of 0140? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475 AM, March 13 at 0403, anti-Christ pirate,
Station YHWH is S9/+10 but thinly undermodulated, overall VP.
Sometimes switches to 7470 depending on QRM. Per Aoki, VOA Deewa Radio
via Germany is on 7470 at 0100-0400, while 7475 is open except for
1400-1945 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9700, March 13 at 0357, TRT IS with IDs in English, audible
under RHC on new frequency, but it`s finished by 0358, clear for
Turkey, opening in Turkish as scheduled from 0400 timesignal, not
English. Meanwhile real English from VOT on 6125 but missing from
7285, one of the few frequencies they still announce at s/on/off.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.004, March 13 at 2329-2340, VOT English underway with
`New Day, New Choices` about ``world-famous Turkish breakfast``
starting with tea, eggs, many other ingredients. Main announcer of the
day is the heavy-accent woman; 2340 TRT-with-you-24h promo, 2341
music; 2345 `Did You Know That`, something about Gallipoli and the
Dardanelles in WWI until 1916y. So many bullets were flying that
despite the long odds, some bullets were found to have collided with
each other. 2349 music; 2353 s/off, IS to 2356* uncovering the CCCCCCI
which was JBA before. BTW, at 2350:45 my chair tremored a bit, but
does not make the USGS EQ registry of mag 2.5+ (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK,

** U S A. 26110 NB FM, Tnx to tip from Harold Frodge, MI, at 1614
March 13 on the WOR iog, the KOVR Stockton CA auxiliary is on the air,
``chit-chatty morning talk show``. I soon have it loud and clear, S7
into Missouri SDR at 1623. Off at 1628 after some sitcom theme. 1630
back on, so don`t give up if not there at first. Many more
interruptions. After a bit of dead air, transmitter autoturns off, it
seems. And cuts back on abruptly. Why don`t they just let it run? By
the way, NBFM is lo-fi, nothing like hi-fi WBFM.

Rough times of breaks included: 1628-1630, 1639-1641, 1649-1652,
1656-1658, 1727-1730, 1741-1744, 1754-1757. Mostly hyper hosts with
fluff, including 1738 remote about the art of drumming; 1744 gushing
about fashions at AcAwards.

Hour before and after 17 UT is ``Good Day``, local show not from KOVR
13 itself but CW31 on their 13.3 subchannel; see sked at 10-11 am PDT
so for another hour:

`Good Day` on & off lasted until 1800. Back on at 1803 with obviously
off-mike, not on air talk, then meteorologist Tracy Humphrey
rehearsing? Or doing more than one take of segment recording for later
on CBS13, ``try it again``. Heavy snowfall at higher elevations, then
flooding expected. For during the CBS13 Noon News at 1900-1930, when
26110 may be back on. Also audible direct at S7/S8 until another stop
at 1811* and during lunch I don`t monitor further. Still off at 1843+,
and never back on after 1900.

The substation audio of `13.3` heard before 1800 was KMAX-TV = CW 31
really on RF 24 per, but which shows KOVR 13-3
carrying Dabl instead. A few times both remotedly and directedly I
scanned 25.8-26.5 MHz without encountering any other such activity
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2181 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
March 12 at 2127 UT the 2100 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only,
S9+10/20 into nearby Noale SDR; lite musical CCI. 2130 into AWR
Wavescan for release March 5: always a week late here?

Also confirmed UT Monday March 13 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+15 into
Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed UT Monday March 13 at shifted time of 0300 UT on WBCQ
Area 51, S9+10 on 6160- into Maryland SDR. Next:

** U S A. 5130, UT Mar 13 at 0408, dead air from WBCQ Radio Angela;
operas now start at 0200 UT Mondays, finish segments before 0400
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5050, March 13 at 0640, S9+10/20 of dead air. WRMI Legends
is scheduled at 2200-0400 only on #4 5050, at top of grid showing
System C. But the C program sked below is totally inconsistent, no
5050 at all! But Legends at 04-05 on 15770. In fact, no 5050, nor
ex-4980 on ANY System. Also off the air rather than all-night, 5010.
Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, UT Mon Mar 13 at 0125-0148+, NO signal from KVOH
again. Were they on at all this weekend, UT Sat/Sun/Mon? Looks like
they need a new transmitter. IIRC a few years ago they did acquire a
second used one, but maybe never serviceable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 13 at 0704 & 0716, unreadable carrier S8/S9
presumed RV still here and of course no 7890 or 11835 harmonix of 3945
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 10125 USB, March 13 at 0657, Oz accent from presumed JBA
ham. I cannot find any phone contacts on 30m at (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
