Published by early UT Thursday each week, the original complete logs
in one merged alfabetical file:
The April 30-May 5 edition:

** CUBA. 6087-6113, May 6 at 0610, RHC English splashing out over ~26
kHz range from 6100 which is S9+20/30. 6165 at S9+10/20 is almost as
bad, 6153-6177 ~24 kHz. 5040 & 6000 are off, 6060 is OK. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. About Bayto Yaikl mentioning PBS Frontline: it`s
this week`s new edition, `Escaping Eritrea`, which was not yet on PBS
website when I checked.

It seems they do not utter the word ``Bayto`` on the air, as Ivo
Ivanov reports: ``FRANCE Reception of Dimtse (Bayto) Yiakl, USA at new
time and on new frequency on May 5:
1630-1700 on 11760 ISS 250 kW / 125 deg to EaAf Tigrinya Wed/Sat, very
good via SDR Tambov, RUS
Announced on the first video at 00.47 sec. Azi Dimtse Yiakl America
and then time and frequency`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, May 6 at 0627, JBA carrier from presumed R.
Kiribati; none others noted, not even 1098 Marshalls (Glenn Hauser,

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 11710, May 6 at 0612, no sign of stilted
French from VOK like heard on May 3, so maybe back on correct
frequencies. The weak 11680 signal both then and now could be VOHA
Zambia as well as P`yongyang. At 1409 May 6, however, 11710 VOK with
scheduled stilted French is S9-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring: Richard Lemke,
Alberta, confirms Wed May 5 at 1030 on WRMI 5850; as well as many
other airings. I confirm final repeat on WRMI: UT Thu May 6 at 0130 on
5010, S9/+10 into Bonaire SDR.

A NEW time starts this week on WRMI, UT Saturday 0130 on 9395; that`s
8:30 pm CDT Friday. WRMI-6 is on 355 degree antenna, NNW. New WOR 2085
should be ready by early UT Friday May 7 for first broadcasts on WRMIs
5850 & 7780, expected not to be pre-empted this week (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 7730, May 6 at 0615, WRMI is back on after missing two
overnights; TOMBS music but modulation keeps cutting off and on. Same
problem on 5850 & 5950, but 5890 WWCR intact. 5850 unusually has a SAH
as if two transmitters be competing. Also, Jeff White says 7570 will
be back on next week, mostly Brother Stair (Glenn Hauser, OK)

** U S A. Re NPR at 50: Rodney Johnson, Plymouth, replies on WOR iog:
``Greetings From Minnesota! I heard the NPR treatment of the event via
podcast. It was well worth the almost hour in length.
73s --Rodney`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, May 6 at 0611, NO signal from R. Vanuatu X 3.
Conditions seem normal with 11725 NZ, and 11895 presumed RFA Saipan
the other significant 25mb signals. Some editors throw out my non-logs
like this as if they were not newsworthy! China not audible either on
11835 -- Ron Howard indicates it too is irregular (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. 9385, May 6 at 1412, open carrier S9+10/S9; likely WEWN
night frequency not turned off; testing? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11523-CW, May 6 at 1331, long JBA automated CW message,
eventually restarting with VVVs, but too weak to detect any DE ID. Not
in EiBi; UDXF iog has numerous recent 11523 logs without specific ID,
some as QSX sent on other frequencies by Russian Navy, or earlier as
ALE by British Army from Muscat, Oman (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
