** CUBA. 9620-9660 approx., Sept 27 at 1326 range of buzznoise out of
9640 transmitter which itself exhibits some humbuzz rather than clear
modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But today no 13 MHz FM
service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9490, Sept 27 at 1327, pulse jamming vs nothing, far outside
the Radio República hours of 01-05. Tough luck, many other users of
9490 including CRI in Bengali right now; also at various hours: AWR
Armenia, BVB via Germany, Bulgaria; NHK via Germany, Tibet, Romania,
Taiwan, VOA via Thailand, Kuwait, São Tomé, UAE, Ascension.
Something`s always wrong at the incompetent DentroCuban Jamming
Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 5129.976, Sept 27 at 0230, WBCQ now off-frequency-minus, but
closer after quite a spell circa 5130.38v. Can`t read the programming,
but scheduled UT Fridays 0200-0300 is Radio for Peace International,
i.e. in French; a new tongue for WBCQ? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 7505v, Sept 27 at 0236, WRNO is OFF; come to think of it,
have not heard in some time altho I have not been seeking it nightly
during the 01-04 UT window. Walt Salmaniw says it`s been a week or
two. So what`s wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 860, Sept 27 at 1312? UT, tune across Pittsburg KS` KKOW ID
``and 97.5 in Joplin`` MO, item to add to the NRC AM Log which shows
no FM. Per WTFDA FM Database, that`s K248DR, 250 watt translator,
ex-K258BF on 105.7. It has no other FM relays of KKOW, not even in
Pittsburg itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1160, Sept 27 at 1253 UT, Oom-pah Mexican music is dominant,
but there is only one XE left on 1160, way off in BC. 1254
announcement mentions ``La Doble K``, so slogan ID? Searching on that
leads no closer than to Lima, Perú. There are no Unitedstatesian 1160s
with KK in their calls. Among US SS stations, this is certainly KCTO
Cleveland MO (KC market), but all listings and own website call it
``La Mega``, nothing about double-K. 1256 fades and I tune elsewhere;
back to 1160 at 1300 it`s faded back up with more Mex music so maybe I
missed real ID. KSL is hardly a factor, as usual seeming weakened.
Belatedly I try to DF it, and NE/SW seems to fit. Soon a SAH develops
of 72/minute = 1.2 Hz, losing out to religion in English, perhaps KRDY
San Antonio altho listed as TLK, or a late remnant of WYLL Chicago

** U S A. 1210, Sept 27 at 0559 UT, rapid multi-station ID for the
Information Station group, including WJNL, and 0600 WJML News; so
Kingsley MI *50 kW daytimer is still cheating* as first noted here
over two sesquimonths ago --- obviously no one else cares, not even
the legal 1210 stations at night. I`m not aiming the DX-398 toward it,
just dominating KGYN et al., on the E-W longwire, at a
spur-of-the-moment check; and BTW at this time it`s much better than
1200 WOAI! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7457-USB, Sept 27 at 1322, MARS net 4TX2 with NCS AFA4WP
arranging relays in rollcall. No results searching for that call, but
we know it`s AF MARS region 4, and maybe TX refer to Texas (Glenn
