re being off-frequency ...
... Thailand, Germany, Kuwait, the others presumably closer to nominal.

re IBB Udorn Thani Thailand:
Yes it was a surprise in this Dec / January 2019
when measured the IBB BBG Udorn Thani eastern Thailand relay fq channels,
someone of the Thai technicians had started an action and UDO frequencies
were aligned nearly to x.000 even accurate,
after some odd fq difference of mostly minus 60-90 Hertz ore more
traced on this Udorn Thani site, in past decade or so.

Now most used fq of these high power bcast centers are
accurate x.000, like

Encompass Digital Media Services, replacing Babcock, at
Woofferton England, Oman{BBC and R Oman}, Singapore, Ascension Island.

IBB BBG Lampertheim, Kuwait al-Dschahra suburb, Udorn Thani Thailand,
{but not Greenville, Botswana, nor STP ... }

Radiotelecentr (PRTC) transmitter Grigoriopol Maiac.

MWV New Life Station, Mahajanga, MDG, Madagascar.

Tajik Radio site Orzu TJK.

RRTM RED Telecom Tashkent Uzbekistan bcast center

CJSC Yerevan Gavar

Vatican Radio Santa Maria di Galeria, Vatican State

TDF Issoudun France,

Japan Yamata site,

Romania RadioCom RRI Galbeni, Tighanesti, and Saftica too.

Sudan Radio Omdurman.

CRI Albania Cerrik Europe relay always excellent eoperation.

Also some 95% of the China mainland transmitters are accurate even fq these
days.

U S A [non]. 13590.056, Feb 16 a 1943, JBA carrier with talk
catches my ear not only for being off-frequency, but the OSOB except
for 13820 Cuban radio war. I hardly expected it to be VOA English via
SAO TOME, as listed in Aoki. 13590 used by a number of IBB sites

Logs
** ANGUILLA. 11775, Feb 17 at 1426, 1528, no signal from CB despite it
being prime Sunday-morning time --- or not so prime yet in LACA; by
1553, dead-air carrier is on, maybe about to start at 1600, but not
tracked further. Its transmissions are extremely irregular (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHAD [non]. 12050, Feb 16 at 2045, weak African music surely isn`t
WEWN Spanish, rather that`s off again, opening up for R. Ndarason
International via ASCENSION at 19-21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100 & 6000, Sunday February 17 at 0657, RHC English
frequencies are distorted, while 6060, 6165 and 5040 are already off.
But did not get back to 6100 after 0700 before outzonking to tell
whether Esperanto resumed. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13779.241, Feb 17 at 1428, this RHC has again knocked way off
nominal 13780. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But no spurs found on
the 13 or 15 MHz bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 17 at 1430 and 1538 chex, CRI English relay very
strong as usual, but extremely suptorted, i.e. only modulation spikes
audible, completely unreadable. Wiggle that patchcord! Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Feb 17 at 0002, The Mighty Farty KBC with
hard rock VG S9+20, but with a SAH --- oh2, there is CCI and I bet
it`s TURKEY again overrunning after English supposed to end before
2400 (when I did not tune in in time to check before Nauen came on).
Only when music diminishes and DJ talks at 0003 can I hear the
understation, and yes, it`s in German, i.e. a VOT SWBC which is not
supposed to exist on anyfrequency. Don`t know how long it lasted again
this week, but by 0100 S9+10/20 when KBC switches to `The Giant
Jukebox` with super-hyped intro, there is no QRM. Uncle Eric had said
the Germans were going to get with the Turx about this after last
week`s debacle. Sometimes all you can do is get away from the
incompetent interferers ASAP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9765, Feb 17 at 0710, RNZI VG as usual, but on this
frequency for only one hour now; at 0759-1258 since Feb 12 per sked is
on 7330 to Solomon Islands and PNG, rather than general ``Pacific``
for all other non-DRM transmissions, i.e. implying that the NNW-only
antenna has been expanded from 2 to 5 hours a night, bad news for
North America resulting in weakened 7330 signal thisaway (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 17 at 0605, VON is already on tonight in Hausa
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4095-AM, Feb 17 at 0423 weak music S6-S8, 0449 still
on with DJ live TC as ``11 before 5 o`clock`` and ID ``X-FM
Shortwave``, offering QSL for e-reports. Off by next check 0556.
Earlier in eve I had patrolled the three main pirate bands and found
nothing: 3.4-3.5, 4.0-4.1 and 6.8-7.0 MHz. Tnx for tip on 4095 from
Mike Newland in KY at 0235, then reported from across North America.
Many more logs of this between 0127 and 0511*:

** U S A [non]. 13590.056, Feb 16 a 1943, JBA carrier with talk
catches my ear not only for being off-frequency, but the OSOB except
for 13820 Cuban radio war. I hardly expected it to be VOA English via
SAO TOME, as listed in Aoki. 13590 used by a number of IBB sites
between 13 and 20 for various services: Thailand, Germany, Kuwait, the
others presumably closer to nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1969 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov,
Bulgaria, confirmed: ``World of Radio 1530-1600 on 9485 GOH 001 kW /
230 deg to CeEu English Sat as scheduled B18`` (but at 1200-1400 were
on 6190 instead).

Confirmed Saturday February 16 after 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair.

Also confirmed UT Sun Feb 17 at 0449 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO with some
CW QRhaM, about 14 minutes into, so started circa 0435. Next:

** U S A. 3264.9, Feb 17 at 0013, WBCQ song not // 7490+, 5130+ or
9330+. 0058 enough signal to be sure it`s not // any of the others
such as TimTron on 5. I wonder if the 24/7 ``burn-in`` initiation of
3265v is just plugged in to WHVW relay as others have noted at various
times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775-, Feb 16 at 1940, no signal from KVOH; surely would
propagate at least a trace by this hour if on; Saturday-only English
is scheduled 1600-2100. Maybe downtime due to work on `new`
transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENINIG DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Feb 17 at 0655, WEWN dead air again at S9/S9+10 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Feb 17 at 1547, gospel huxter is JBA, a notable
event for WJHR to be on and propagating with its pretend-SWBC
transmitter. WRTH 2019 still says it`s 250-watts run at 1 kW PEP. Last
time I logged was Jan 20, altho Wolfgang Bueschel heard it Feb 1
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.977, Feb 17 at 1548, S9+10 fading to S7, WTWW-3 is on
after long silence, with gospel huxter // still much stronger 5085
WTWW-2 instead of rock or ham stuff, unusual, and so not // 9475-
WTWW-1 SFAW. Tree of Life church, Woodland TN is finishing, 1550 odd
time for WTWW ID and address break by Ted. Last time I heard it was
Jan 6, on .983, and also reported by Ivo Ivanov. Today too he reports
it from 1343, weak/fair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5780.000 & 5840, Feb 17 at 0005, JBA carriers while KBC
5960 is inbooming from Germany, so I wonder if QRP Europeans are
showing? 5780 could be Irish pirate Radio Harmony, and 5840 Danish
non-pirate World Music Radio; nothing however on 5825, the other Dane

Logs
** AUSTRALIA. 5055, Feb 16 at 1225, JBA carrier presumed 4KZ, but as
usual nothing detectable on 5045-LSB, where WORLD OF RADIO should be
running on Unique Radio this alternate Saturday; next: March 2 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4885, Feb 16 at 0702, R. Clube do Parà is S9+10, as the
best ZY signal on 60m is even better than usual; hyper DJ and music on
``Madrugada`` show, NOT for the dozing at 4+ am local. With BFO there
always seems to be a second slightly offset undersignal, presumably
the other ZY if not later Korea South.

DST in Brasil ends Feb 17; not including Parà which is on UT-3
yearound. Here`s a useful map showing DST/non-DST areas. DST observed
roughly in the southern (not eastern) half:
https://www.timeanddate.com/time/change/brazil
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5910, Feb 16 at 0357, Chinese/English les from CRI relay,
S9+20 but suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 16 at 0700, S9+10/20 of dead air, implying that
this frequency missing for a couple of weeks may have been back for
the 05-07 English bihour. Maybe 6100 will also succeed for Esperanto
24 hours later? 6000 carrier also still on with samehum, while 6165 &
6060 are already off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Feb 16 at 1400, I copy the complete RHC frequency
announcement: now closing 11950 and 6150 (but 11950 was already off as
I tuned by it); continuing until 1600 on: 15140, 11760, 9535, 9640,
13700. In that disorder, and that`s all, NOT mentioning 13780 and
15230 where it is also still running past 1506! Nor mentioning the FM
and non-FM spurs out of 13700 and 15140, but not much of them today,
only traces circa 14969, 15168, 15311. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. 9540, Sat Feb 16 at 0500, no signal in OK, from the
new clandestine/target broadcast Radio Sinit for Eritrea, as first
reported in WRTH Update, but I am getting it well via UTWente SDR, all
talk so far at 0507; I remind WOR iog that it`s time for their only
weekly broadcast, as first reported here:

``RADIO SINIT ERITREA (NEW ENTRY)

(WRTH Update Feb 4 via WORLD OF RADIO 1969, DXLD) Sinit --- first news
of this one (gh)

FRANCE, New clandestine via TDF Issoudun - Radio Sinit Eritrea
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/02/new-clandestine-broadcast-via-tdf.html
(Ivo Ivanov, SWLDXBulgaria News Feb.7, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Viz.:

0500-0600 on 9540 ISS 250 kW / 139 deg to EaAf Tigrinya/Arabic Sat
ÐÑÐÐÐÐÑÐÐÐÐ ÐÑ Observer Ð 4:26 PM (via DXLD)``

But no one replies as having monitored it directly or indirectly, just
me for the rest of the hour:

0508 OM speech; 0511 mention al-Qa`ida; 0515 HOA music and YL talk;
0517 vocal HOA music; 0525 OM talk; 0527 instrumental music; 0529 YL
announcement, music, mention of Eritrea; 0530 switch to Arabic, ID,
long speech; 0545 mix including several long YL IDs, 0547 song, 0551
ID and more speech; 0556 mentions Phoenix, Arizona, and many mentions
of Amerikiya; 0558* cuts off air incomplete.

I could not make out any ID during the Tigrinya half; more familiar
Arabic, something like ``huna idhaat al watan eritrea`` which google
approx. translates as ``Here are the sermons of the homeland of
Eritrea``; and some longer YL IDs with more words in them.

Meanwhile I try to find out more about it. Google translate does not
extend to Tigrinya or even Oromo, so in case it`s similar I try
Amharic for Sinit. It comes up with some words similar to sinit, but
probably misleading: meaning drunkenness, seduxion, or stingy. No hits
for Sinit in Arabic.

Then to the website WRTH provided. It has some English, and audio
going back to their first broadcast on Dec 1, 2018, but no leads as to
who`s behind it or what their mission may be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545, Sat Feb 16 at 1509, JBA music, HOA? Except
for JBA 17615+ Saudi Arabia, it`s the OSOB: station I discovered a few
weeks ago and rendered thus in Feb 4 WRTH Update:

``SOWT AL-SOMOOD (VOICE OF STEADFASTNESS) (EX ALSMOOD)

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 730, Feb 16 at 1342, amid Mexican music, ``La Mexicana,
107.1``. So this remnant 50 kW XEHB from Hidalgo del Parral, is not
even worth mentioning; but AM is to stay per IFT in the IRCA Mexican
Log. It`s the best/only lowband XE propagating this long after 1318
LSR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6184.992, Feb 16 at 0023, XEPPM is S8-S9 but as usual very
undermodulated with music; 0029 Spanish announcement; 0040 PSAs
including SecretarÃa de Salud, plug a concert at 5pm in the Palacio de
Bellas Artes; then some jazz. I`m rechecking it following this news
from JuliÃn Santiago DÃez de Bonilla in Mexico City, Feb 15:

``Hola Glenn, A partir de hoy, XEPPM Radio EducaciÃn onda corta 6185
kHz està haciendo pruebas con su antiguo transmisor Elcom Bauer con
capacidad de 5 kW. Al parecer su transmisor de 10 kW està averiado.
La escucho en estos momentos con un SINPO de 5. Saludos, JuliÃn
Santiago, Enviado desde mi iPad``

Says starting today it`s testing with old 5 kW transmitter. Apparently
their 10 kW is out of order. But I find that it`s no better here than
it had been before.

I had not measured 6185 precisely lately, but a sesquimonth ago it was
on the plus side per Wolfgang Bueschel: ``6185.011, upper side of the
channel now, R Educacion Mexico D.F. fluttery S=8-9 signal at 0311 UT
on Dec 29, logs from Cape Canaveral Florida state``

Unless one or both transmitters vary more than this difference of 19
Hz, that might be a way to differentiate them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.95, Feb 16 at 0657, S9+20, VON IS of fluting and
drumming, normally heard one hour earlier prior to Hausa at 0600.
Unknown if they start an hour late, or is really interval before
switching to Fulfulde or something at 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 960, Sat Feb 16 at 1323 UT, local KGWA Enid found to be
in dead air as I am doing JBA TP MW carrier bandscan, so no splatter
on 954 or 963, but nil heard there.

I also null 960 as much as possible, hearing only a trace of another
station. By 1340, KGWA remodulates. O, how I long for the good ole
days when KGWA often provided for months a ``Fox-hole``, 5 minutes of
dead air at local midnight allowing me to accumulate a number of other
960 logs from as far away as Calgary straight thru KGWA (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 6125.0, Feb 16 at 0400, VOT timesignal and manages to
modulate today! But opens with canned intro of WRONG English schedule
for A-season, which even then was not entirely correct, as I
previously noted. Poor S8-S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY [and non]. 12035.0, Feb 16 at 1403, VOT is blasted away by
rather heavy stray(?) Cuban pulse jamming during what may have been
Letterbox; gaining a bit later when only filling with music. 11815.0
Turkish is also not +0.7 kHz off-frequency today.

13685.716, Feb 16 at 1423, instead the Emirler shifter is here today
for the end of the VOT Uighur hour, JBA carrier vs no WINB QRDRM since
it`s Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1969 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov,
Bulgaria, reports: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on
6190 kHz CUSB on Feb.16
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/02/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_16.html

WOR 1969 confirmed Saturday February 16 from about 1229:53 on WRMI
9955, thus overlapping World Music fill and no ID, VG S9+10/20

Not confirmed the Sat Feb 16 1531 on HLR 9485-CUSB: as usual inaudible

** U S A. 3264.9, Feb 16 at 0020, JBA carrier from WBCQ-4? or -5?

5130.49, UT Sat Feb 16 at 0059, WBCQ concluding the ``Far Right Radio
Show`` (or was it ``Alt-Right``?), no ID and 0100 into march theme of
weapons show ``from bare hands to AR-15``, S9 and getting louder now,
``Weapons Wednesday`` is apparently the title regardless of current
DOW, with Mark & Don.

So `Allan Weiner Worldwide` will not be on here, despite being better
received than weakening VP primary 7490.18, while 9330 is inaudible,
off? and 3264.9 still JBA carrier. The latter is totally useless here
even during primetime; must be very low-powered.

AWWW starts barely audible on 7490.18v, enough to hear his first
exclamation ``No more hamburgers!`` before fadeout. Usually the last
~10 minutes contain some station info, reading and replying to e-mail,
some pirate info from FRW, so I bring up the webcast about 0150, and
glean one tidbit of use: says ``3265`` is 24/7 like 9330. What could
John H Carver hear? He mailed already at 0154:

``5130 is back to the militia. 7490 is too noisy to copy. No signal on
9330 but I find them on 3265. Noisy but able to copy; however that
quickly changes. Allan and a very animated Angela in the studio
discussing different forms of energy besides oil. Compares Elon Musk
to Thomas Edison. Sounds like Tom Barna is in the studio with them but
it's difficult to tell. Difficult to copy but they seem to be on the
same topic. Allan announces that 3265 is running 24/7 for awhile. I'm
receiving the signal at almost S3. At 0141 show becomes very difficult
to copy and I lose the signal at 0146. John, Mid-North Indiana``

Only other reports of 3265v:

``Hi Glenn, Feb 15, noted for the first time a new signal on 3264.9,
during my local morning, at 1058 & 1120, with faint music, but
extremely weak; by 1207, too weak for any audio (only carrier). Ron
Howard, California``

``USA WBCQ Monticello Maine, near New Brunswick Canada border line.
3264.912 --- x.917 unstable wandered upwards signal around 1058--1110
UT on Feb 16. Guitar pop music traced at NJ-US remote installation.
S=9+20dB at peak reception much better closer to Maine/New Brunswick-
CANADA [selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb df5sx,
wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Febr 16)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, Feb 16 at 1446, this WRMI-1 is unusually on, poor with
music. Transmission sked grid shows SMTV from 1400 only on Sundays but
this is Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265V, Feb 16 at 1435, WINB carrier is *really* wobbling
during gospel huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Feb 16 at 1440, huge S9+40/50 WWCR signal overloads my
poor R75 unless I turn off preamps: 8880, I expect usual mixture with
strongest local KCRC (7490+1390), but I also have weak // 7490 WWCR
audio on 8210, which is 720 kHz above, and there is certainly no local
signal there to mix. Possibly it`s a leapfrog over 7850-CHU, which is
halfway between, 360 kHz above and below, but not very strong and
cannot hear any timesignals on 8210 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, Sat Feb 16 at 1343 UT, ``Accentuate the Positive`` tune
playing, 1345 Bible fund-raiser talk, 1346 ``Footsteps from TWR`` with
Lauren Libby, president; says they use 230 languages, and shortwave
listening is increasing, getting back in style (?); Xmas special on
KTWR got good response from China, etc.; also plugs several-country
coverage of hi-power AM without detailing Bonaire or Central Asia.
Looping N/S, this is obviously via KMMJ Grand Island, Nebraska, 10.5
kW-limited sked. While now, and never do I hear one of my most-wanted
Okies, 220-watt daytimer 750 KSEO Durant! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 13680, Sat Feb 16 at 1401, VOH Africa weekend-only
transmission, `Your Weekend Show` with Bob Biermann musing about radio
technology. (See also his comments in next DXLD about how there is no
new crop of engineers coming along to replace those who know SW and
AM). 13680 is good and fully readable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search Feb 16 from 1318:
747-NW, 702-WSW, 693-?, 594-?, 882-?, 972-NW, 1098-W, 1188-?, 1503-?;
1566-NW at 1327, the strongest and FEBC S Korea of course. Could not
get DX-398 DF on some of the others, too weak and/or both FE and DU.
1566 seemed to have a second carrier causing very slow beat, maybe
also WSW, but a 5 kW from Victoria would be unlikely; how about 200
watts from Norfolk Island? Hi. Enid LSR today: 1318 UT, just when I
started (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

NEW ZEALAND One notices, the winter also goes to the end of the shortwave
condition in the next 2 to 3 weeks, the spread on the long path
will be over Pacific and Latin America from NZL to Europe to be close early
in our European morning.

now is at us fade-out and under the sward/threshold of the string

Subject: RE - Glenn Hauser log Feb 15 - WBCQ on 3264.9 kHz. (presumed)


USA. 3264.9 kHz, Feb 15 at 0200 UT, JBA carrier so presumably WBCQ still
testing here; has it been on every might since Monday, all night? Sked
still says "There are no scheduled transmissions on 3265 kHz at this time"
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)


Hi Glenn,
Feb 15, noted for the first time a new signal on 3264.9 kHz, during my
local morning, at 1058 & 1120 UT, with faint music, but extremely weak;
by 1207 UT, too weak for any audio (only carrier).
