** ANGUILLA. Re my ham log missing one letter, Chuck W3ON replies:
``Glen[n], I just checked the K3LR DX cluster. The following stations
are currently operating. VP2ETE VP2EIH VP2EKG``

``Anguilla Island: I took another look at the K3LR DX cluster. Most
likely what you heard from Anguilla was VP2EIH. The station was
spotted on the K3LR DX cluster on October 20th on 18121 kHz
at 2133 UT`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Oct 22 at at 0623 UT, YL weather in English, gale
warning mentioned repeatedly; 0625 ``This is Halifax Coast Guard
Radio; out`` but immediately resumes briefly in French, back to
English. S6 vs an S5 noise level. Winterish conditions are looking up.
Maybe special broadcast as it`s 3:25 am in NS.

2598-USB also with a weaker YL voice at 0627, too weak. This frequency
covers NL and vicinity. There are a few other 2 MHz channels listed
further north and west which I have never managed to hear, if they
still exist (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 22 at 1354 check, Trenton Military, ditto
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Oct 22 at 1353, RHC S9+10/20 but suptorted while //
15140 is OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, Oct 22 at 1420, China Plus relay in English is S9+30
but extremely suptorted; wiggle that patchcord or render a refund to
the ChiCom! Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9620-9660, Oct 22 at 1425, the RHC 9640 transmitter is still
spewing a buzzfield at least plus/minus 20 kHz, worst peaks circa 9630
& 9650. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Oct 22 at 2146, RHC S7-S9 but only a trace of
modulation, unlike sufficient 11850. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 11561, Oct 22 at 1418, AIR 11560 with a song has a 1 kHz
het/carrier on the hi side; whence? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9095, Oct 22 at 1346, algo JBA, no doubt Echo of Hope,
clandestine on its latest shift as also heard yesterday, and nothing
on original 9100 nor interim 9105. The Oct 21 edition of Aoki has it
only on 9095, but what about tomorrow (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11520, Oct 22 at 1417, something new here, talk in
unID language, S4-S7, unused frequency per Aoki. Nothing now on 11530
and maybe some noise on 11540, so suspect another shift by Dengê
Welat. Or is it Turkey jamming? The situation could change from day to
day or even hour to hour. Ivo Ivanov indicates when I heard it, both
were on 11520:

Pro Erdogan Radio Recep & Denge Welat in 25mb, October 21:

Pro Erdogan Radio Recep & Denge Welat on new 11520 kHz, Oct. 22
0600-1300 Pro Erdogan Radio Recep & Denge Welat are on 11530, instead

https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/10/pro-erdogan-radio-recep-denge-welat-on.html

October 22 from 1600 UT Radio Denge Welat is on 11530 ISS and TRT
broadcast of Turkish secret services on 11520 EMR

Denge Welat on 11530 & Pro Erdogan Radio Recep on 11520, Oct. 22
from 1600 on 11530 ISS 250 kW/090 Kurdish R. Denge Welat, very strong
from 1600 on 11520 EMR 500 kW/105 Turkish TRT Radio Recep, very good

I assume ``Radio Recep`` is Ivo`s nickname for it, not a real ID
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6907-USB, Oct 22 at 2345, S9 pirate music, with
abrupt breaks in modulation = transmission, but YL ``CNR`` IDs at
2345, 2353, apparently stays off from 2357*. Many earlier logs here:

It`s not so Clever when Clever Name Radio be initialized (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 341 kHz, Oct 22 at 2153 UT, EI is back! EnId`s 25-watt
MCW ND beacon at Woodring airport. The manager and others I visited
yesterday had no direct knowledge of it or its status, referring me to
FAA; but maybe my inquiry led her to look into turning it back on?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Oct 22 at 1930 UT, KOKB Blackwell is cutting off
and on the air, and when on is weaker than normal, compared to other
stations and the noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, Oct 22 circa 2115 UT in a pledge break, KUCO says
it will be moving to ``beautiful new studios in downtown OKC`` ---
thus following in the footsteps of KOSU which could not resist the
allure of the Big City, both forsaking their original campi in Edmond
and Stillwater. At least KGOU remains at OU in Norman. If only KUCO
would spend some of that expense to attain a local-quality translator
signal into Enid. At least we may hope its recently refurbished
transmitter/site will remain on the north side (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2004 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday October
23 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA. Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 9330, Oct 22 at 2132, WBCQ-6 is off today; why? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) see UNID 12120.4

** U S A. 17850, Oct 22 at 2138, JBA carrier, presumed WRMI 5950 X 3,
but still too weak to audiblize a match of BS; would be OSOB & SSOB if
17775 KVOH were not running late. I always check too for any trace of
Kuwait to us on 17550 which propagates only at midsummer, but zilch
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17774.99 approx., Oct 22 at 2135, praise music in Spanish
registering only S1, as KVOH is still on past nominal 2100* on Tue &
Thu; remains slightly off-frequency and have never answered my query
whether this be the old or ``new`` transmitter. It`s the SSOB but not
the OSOB tnx to WRMI? on 17850, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** UZBEKISTAN. 12160, Oct 22 at 1415, S Asian language talk vs CODAR,
S9-S7. Amid the TWR India 1345-1545 broadcast via Tashkent in a
complex compendium of tongues; Aoki shows M-F at 1400-1430 it`s Sin
which per EiBi means Sinhalese, not Sindhi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1690, Oct 22 at 2156 UT, heavy SAH of about 2.5 Hz,
between WVON Chicago --- and?? Retén lo que Tienes, Bâton Rouge
pirate? There is certainly a second station to cause the SAH. This
long before sunset, possibly KDMT Arvada CO is already propagating
here at the Top End; WMLB further east could be if it`s no longer
silent in GA, but seldom/never heard here. I compare this SAH to
another one later at 0038 Oct 23 which is more like 2.8 Hz and
definitely between KDMT and WVON. MWOffsets had those 3.9 Hz apart so
it`s all inconclusive (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12120.4, Oct 22 at 2149, S4-S7 of open carrier; could it
be WBCQ-6, not on 9330 now? Surely not, so off-frequency, but
originally registered here for A-19 afternoons, with 11730 to be next
in B-19, should they attain higher-frequency capability. More likely
NAU Isabela PR RTTY idling (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15330-USB, Oct 22 at 1351, 2-way in colloquial Spanish
altho the other way inaudible, INTRUDERS upon the ex-AFRTS frequency
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
