My blog with the videos of the listening:

https://dxlogfreitas.blogspot.com/Â;

11965 09Dec 1132 GUAM (Relay) KTWR Guam in English. OM and YL speak. The signal is weak, some fading, but constant audio. (Jorge Freitas-B)
15690 09Dec 1354 GERMANY (Relay) Radio Farda in Persian. Pop music. At 1356 ID by OM and follows music. At 1400 beep signal and YL speaks. Follows music at 1405. The signal is weak, moderate fading. Better hearing with the use of headphones. (Jorge Freitas-B)
17585 09Dec 1433 GERMANY (Relay) (PRESUMED) VOA in Tibetan. OM speaks. I did not notice any Chinese jammer. The signal in SDRs from Asia all ticked equal or smaller than mine. The signal was weak, but there was a significant improvement at 1430, until 1433, when it became very weak again. The question that remains is: is the VOA really Tibetan without any Chinese jammer? I thank the opinions of my colleagues (Jorge Freitas-B)
15550 09Dec 1514 VATICAN (Relay) Radio Tamazuj in Sudanese. OM and YL speak. It seems to answer phone calls, vignettes. The signal is weak, but clear audio with moderate fading. (Jorge Freitas-B)
17850 09Dez 1605 FRANCE (Relay) Voice of Independent Oromia in Oromo. OM speaks. The signal is weak with clear audio peaks and moderate fading. (Jorge Freitas-B)
11775 09Dec 2002 ANGUILLA (Relay) Caribbean Beacon (University Network) in English. YL with religious preaching. The signal is reasonable. (Jorge Freitas-B)
9730 09Dec 2025 VIETNAM Voice of Vietnam in German. YL speaks, right after traditional Vietnamese music. At 2030 the program starts in French. The signal is reasonable. (Jorge Freitas-B)
11905 10Dez 0214 SRI LANKA SLBC em Hindi. MÃsica local e curtas falas de YL. O sinal à fraco com picos de claro Ãudio. (Jorge Freitas-B)
9335 10Dec 0224 THAILAND (Relay) VOA in Burmese. OM and YL alternate in talking animatedly, short stretches of music. The signal is reasonable. (Jorge Freitas-B)
12140 10Dec 0238 THAILAND (Relay) Radio Azadi in Pashto. OM speaks. The signal is reasonable and is improving as the transmission passes. (Jorge Freitas-B)

Sunday, December 09 2018

Logs
** BRAZIL [non]. 6180, Dec 9 at 0133, RNA is off again, nor on 11780,
following last night`s broken signal. So CRI English via CUBA is in
the clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Dec 9 at 0149, RHC music has mix of RTTY? Some
utesound, then clear. Not sure whether this was genuine QRM or yet
more something wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Dec 9 at 0504, R. Rebelde music is overmodistorted.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. I am seldom monitoring in the 05-06 hour, but Dec 9 I
discover even more anomalies from Radio Habana Cuba: 5040 is already
in English at 0505, rather than starting at 0600. 6100 and 6060 are
also already on and in English at 0507, along with 6165 and 6000. It
does appear that RHC has reverted to summertime/DST scheduling. But
wait, there`s more:

12000, Dec 9 at 0514, RHC English on unsked frequency, fair S9,
matching synchronous 6000 and undermodulation level. So is this a
harmonic? Or a fundamental, like 12000 is earlier in Spanish. 12000 is
*still* going in English at 0637.

11840, Dec 9 at 0516, RHC English on another unsked frequency,
supposedly only in Spanish much earlier. This one is blasting in at
S9+30, and accompanied by the JBA spurs on 11830 & 11850 --- the only
frequency behaving like this, tho the same transmitter must be used on
some other frequency at other dayparts. At 0522 over to Arnie Coro,
admittedly ``on the phone``, with `Breakthrough` talk about improving
safety at Cuba`s 2000+ railroad crossings. Not rechecked until 0637
when it`s off.

11700, Dec 9 at 0518, RHC is S9/S9+20 in Spanish during `Sonido
Cubano` music show. Since 5040 and 6060 are already in English and
nothing heard on 31m, this is the only RHC Spanish frequency to be
heard. 11760 has a JBA carrier at 0637, surely not RHC. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. Regarding 17545, Sat at 15-16, I discovered Dec 9,
and IDed by RMI broker as ``Alsmood``, which name I found on some
disgraced FB pages, Kai Ludwig, Germany, replies to the WOR iog:

``At least at a first glance this seems to be entirely Egyptian staff.
Looks like the Facebook profile of someone in Egypt, running a relief
project which on its own Facebook profile https://www.facebook.com/pg/alsmodllaytamlltnmya
does not show activities outside Egypt either, and just being a fan of
these radio stations.

The reply from Jeff White raises another question: Who assumes the
responsibility for the content of these broadcasts? It looks like it
would indeed be his Radio Miami International. Pretty daring to put
some stuff on air without even knowing what it is. Kai``

Meanwhile I forwarded the disgraced FB stuff to Jeff, and asked,
``Does this look like the same station to you, or not?``

He replied, ``Beats me. I'm not sure what Alsmood means in Tigrinya.``

Google translate does not include Tigrinya, but I try Alsmood in
Amharic, and with some prodding it comes up with: Knowledge --- but
pronounces the script as iwik`eti ?? (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 5950, Sunday Dec 9 at 0646, RFI English.com is S9+10
on WRN via WRMI. Mentions ``Saturday is tomorrow`` confirming that
this is a playback of the Friday 14 UT broadcast, nothing more in
English to be produced over the weekend. Stops at 0649 and 0650
replaced by fill music, in French? No, unseems. Probably the WRMI
default. Same stale hour should get another playback at 06-07 UT
Monday. So don`t expect the latest yellow-vest reports here! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non?]. 9790, Dec 9, 1427-1430+, S9-S7 open carrier, but no
programming starting; 1458 recheck, maybe JBM; 1459 French talk and
music, RFI ID and into African language. This does not match any known
scheduling: HFCC has Saudi Arabia in Arabic on 9790, but that is
apparently wooden as not in EiBi or Aoki/NDXC. Starting at 1500 was
RFA Chinese via defunct Saipan, and ChiCom jamming. 9790 is an RFI
ISSoudun frequency at many other hours, not listed now (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Dec 9 at 0640, VOG with Sunday service Orthodox
chanting, lovely music, S9+10/20. Not often is this propagating any
more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, UT Sun Dec 9 at 0131, finally a decent
pirate log, S9+10 and probably Wolverine Radio with song; brief check
of other frequencies misses an ID, at 0134 SSTV; but 0136 rare live
announcement from Wolverine Radio; says he fears not everyone could
hear this broadcast so is going to repeat it in about 5 minutes on
3440, but then plays some more SSTV on 6955.

I hasten to notify the WOR iog, and when I get back at 0141, 3440-USB
is already on with music. But much inferior here, only S8 and happens
to confront blob from a local device. 0143 ``Happy Days Are Here
Again`` as tonight`s theme is songs about ``Happy``. Many more logs:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,48787.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11975, Dec 9 at 1505, talk at modulation spikes only,
unreadable; wiggle that patchcord at RRI Galbeni, 14-16 in Romanian
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3215, Dec 9 at 0654 check, WWCR-1 is off
again, as on Sunday there is no Brother Scare before 0600 to be
prolonged (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9700, Dec 9 at 0639, Turkish music and talk, S9+10 fading
to S6, as TRT is here at 04-07, 500 kW, 310 degrees for W Europe, but
also USward. MUF unusually hi tonight also propagating GREECE on 9420
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1959 monitoring: Hi Glenn, Just to
confirm that I heard WOR on Sat Dec 8 on 6190 kHz - weak, but I
couldn't mistake your voice! Also Media Network Plus heard from 0720
tune-in (Alan Roe, Teddington, UK, WOR iog via DXLD)

6190, Hamburger LokalRadio, Goehren, 0730-0800, 08-12, English, Glenn
Hauser's program "World of Radio". 15321 (Manuel MÃndez, Lugo, Spain,
Logs in Friol and Reinante, Tecsun S-8800, cable antenna, 8 meters,
WOR iog via DXLD)

WOR 1959 confirmed UT Sunday Dec 9 at 0425 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO,
about 12 minutes into show, so started circa 0413, S9+20. Next:
2130 UT Sunday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 5950 to WNW, 9395 to NNW
0400vUT Monday WBCQ *5130v Area 51 to WSW
0430 UT Monday WRMI *9955 to SSE
* also webcast; direct linx to these and many others at:

Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, UT Sun Dec 9 at 0150, lo-fi with clix, hum, etc. two
guys commenting about fake news; one says he was on C2CAM last night
(caller or guest?), S9+20 from the last remaining WWRB transmission
after Dave has destroyed most of his antennas and transmitters. Live
announcement from him at 0159 interrupts the talk show without any
outro or even name, repeatedly urging us to retune to 3185, and off
before WWCR comes up on 3215, by 0201 with Martha Garvin singing.

3185, Dec 9 from *0159:53, WWRB cuts on here (rather than 3195),
clearly a different program than before the break, mentions `Message
of the Cross` but unsure if that be the title, with Bob Martin.

Not checked further here, but Mike Newland in Morgantown KY on the WOR
iog was still hearing it much later: ``WWRB Morrison TN. December 9,
2018 0328Z 3185 kHz. Strong signal S-9 + 30 dB. Religious commentary
by male announcer. SINPO 55555`` --- an example of how good the 90m
band is for close-in coverage: only 193 km = 120 miles apart (but
259/161 if driving via I-24 thru Nashville, and I-65). Is WWRB still
active UT Mon and even UT Tue? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, Dec 9 at 0643, WRNO S9+30 in Chinese and splattering
plus/minus 12 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Dec 9 at 0645, WTWW-1 is AWOL, while neighbor 5935
WWCR is VG (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Re: ``6934.8-AM, Dec 8 at 0103, JBA carrier, my first
pirate in a sesquimonth? But no logs of it on HF Underground tonight,
just unID USBs on 6925, 6950, 6955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)``

Chris Smolinski, of HF Underground replies: ``Hi Glenn, This is the
UNID pirate from South America. Some suspect it is from Argentina, but
no one knows for sure. There are logs of it on the HF Underground on
the Latin American Pirate board:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php?board=39.0
It doesn't get logged every time it is on as it is often heard on the
east coast. Chris Smolinski, Black Cat Systems, Westminster, MD USA,
http://www.blackcatsystems.com`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

Logs
** CANADA. 413 kHz, Dec 8 at 0755 UT, beacon YHD, 250 watts from
Dryden, Ontario; must have had a dash but didn`t note it.

406, Dec 8 at 0756 UT, beacon YLJ and dash, 40 watts at Meadow Lake,
Saskatchewan.

401, Dec 8 at 0758 UT, beacon YPO and dash, 500 watts from Peawanuck,
Ontario. Got to be a new one: love these colourful placenames.

Wikipedia: ``Peawanuck is an isolated Cree community in the Kenora
District, Ontario, Canada. It is located near the confluence of the
Winisk and Shamattawa rivers, about 35 km from the Winisk River's end
in Hudson Bay. Its population is 237.`` --- that does not mean it is
anywhere near Kenora in the SW corner of the province! (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CAYMAN ISLANDS. 415 kHz, Dec 8 at 0754, beacon CBC, which is 600
watts from Cayman Brac (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non}. 11920, Dec 8 at 1500, S8-S4 news in perfect French,
RFI? but DPRK clew and stingers leading finally to 1509 ID as ``Radio
Chine Internationale``. This is 150 kW, 240 degrees via ALBANIA at 14
-16 --- the only station anywhen on 11920 per HFCC, but a 5960 could
harmonicize here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Dec 8 at 1511, RHC is S9+10 but suptorted; wiggle that
patchcord! // 15230 sounds OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. UNIDENTIFIED. 17545, Sat Dec 8 at 1546, VP carrier,
the OSOB! (as 17775 KVOH is not on yet or inaudible). Aoki/NDXC shows:

17545 R [sic, only one letter in name column!] 1500-1600 12...67
Amharic 150 122 Issoudun F 4657N 00159E RMI Eritrea b18 Dec.1-

And EiBi:
17545 1500-1600 F R.V. [sic, 2 letters!]. Eritrea Tig Issoudun 167

And HFCC:
17545 1500 1600 48NW ISS 150 122 0 227 1267 011218 300319 D 17400 Mul
F RMI TDF 17058 Eritrea

So I ask Jeff White: ``Hi Jeff, Heard a signal on 17545 this morning
(and nothing else on 16m then). It appears to be one of yours --- what
is the real name of this station; contact info? Is the 4-day-a-week
sked correct? Or 3 days as in EiBi. Tnx, Glenn``

He replies: ``Glenn: Itâs Saturday only. Itâs called Alsmood, but I
donât have a website or contact info. Jeff``

So I go a-Googling, disregarding sites about ALS:

https://www.facebook.com/alsmood.llaytam
with more than 5 megafollowers

leading to this satellite broadcast:
https://www.facebook.com/elradio9090/

and also linked to this on 88.1/88.7 FM:
https://www.facebook.com/88.7fmNews/?ref=py_c

It`s apparently based in Cairo, but nothing much ``about``
https://www.facebook.com/alsmood.llaytam/about

Nothing found about this SW broadcast, so no positive 17545 connexion
with this disgraced FB info (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 6190-USB, Sat Dec 8 at 0730 I struggle to detect Hamburger
Lokalradio when WORLD OF RADIO is scheduled, but not a trace. Would
just like for once to hear me direct on this station. Deep winter
should be the best chance, but too-low MUF and/or too-low power. No
luck either at 1531 UT Saturdays on 9485-CUSB. But it`s mainly for
Europe. And sometimes off the air without notice (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 11900, Dec 8 at 1456, gospel huxter in English at S4-S6,
not noticed before --- because it`s a Saturday-only broadcast of Bible
Voice via Nauen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1300 & 1480, Dec 8 at 1946 UT during bandscan on caradio
for daytime skywave, JBA hets on these two, i.e. ~90 kHz from 1390
KCRC local a mile or so away. The +/- ~30 kHz KCRC spurs near 1360 &
1420 are perpetual and loud enough to listen to, while the weaker ones
+/- ~60 kHz near 1330 & 1450 are also always audible; so now I
conclude KCRC spurs also spew out to the third order. BTW, the KCRC
engineer denies they exist! Despite my hearing the closer 4 anywhere
in Enid on anyradio, and the primary ones a considerable distance on
the road out of Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Some NDB DXing before I doze, tuning down, don`t even get to
400 kHz:

417, Dec 8 at 0752, IY, which is 25 watts from Charles City, Iowa

404, Dec 8 at 0757, HU, 25 watts at Hutchinson, Kansas.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) more: CANADA; CAYMAN ISLANDS

** U S A. 15580, Sat Dec 8 at 2105, VOA`s only hour via Greenville is
S9+30, blasting in during VOA One rock music, but with some IADs
(intermittent audio dropouts). Hardly any announcements past 2130 as I
continue to wish VOA had more diverse tastes in American! music (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1959 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
December 8 at 1209 on Unique Radio via WINB, 9265, as I happen to
awaken; VP S3-S4. Richard Langley, New Brunswick also reports:

``Heard very weakly using the U. Twente SDR receiver today (8
December). So weak, couldn't make out edition # nor most other
information. When WINB signal checked before leaving home at about
1200 UT, nothing could be heard. Propagation not supported to NB``

Saturday Dec 8 at 1531 on HLR 9485-CUSB: nothing audible via UTwente
SDR, possibly a trace at 1558. (See also GERMANY)

I am also wanting to confirm WOR Saturday at 1700 on WRN via WRMI
5950, but keep missing it. Did check at 1747 and could hear JBA signal
in English mentioning Chinese, so that fits for Guangdong Radio at
1730 on WRN. Next:
0400vUT Sunday WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0415], ND
0830 UT Sunday WRMI 5850 to NW, 5950 to WNW, 7730 to WNW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. John Carver`s report on this week`s `Allan Weiner
Worldwide`, UT Sat Dec 8 at 00-01 on WBCQ, had not quite yet arrived
in time for my last report, but now:

``Show started more or less on time on 7490 this evening after a bit
of dead air. Allan and Angela in the studio. Allan had a small rant
about special prosecutors, equating them with the Inquisition. Said it
was a terrible waste of time and money, achieving nothing but the
ruined lives of a few good people.

Allan stated they were also on 5130 and 9330 but there is another
program on 5130 at this time. Phone caller at 0113 points out to Allan
that there's another program on 5130 at that time. More talk between
Allan and the caller about politics, social media, cellphones etc.
Signal on 7490 starts to diminish around 0132.

Phone call at 0137 from an old listener and some talk about old shows
in the archives. Some talk with Angela about "smart" speakers and how
they can gather information on the owners.

Allan starts reading some old emails at 0148. Mr. Transistor Norm
calls at 0151 and touches base with Allan as it's been awhile since
they've talked. Back to the old emails at 0154. Prayer at 0158. Show
was off the air at 0200 as was 7490. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn
Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Dec 8 at 1453, this WRMI is off; on Saturdays is
supposed to stay on even past 1500; 9395 in well enough (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 21525, Dec 8 at 1905, Radio Africa via WRMI with good
signal, S9+10 even audiblizing some humbuzz like video mix, gospel
huxter in English. Normally it`s a JBA carrier at best, as obviously
getting a temporary winter sporadic E boost.

21610 has VP signal from WHRI, now HFCC registered at 14-19, but
Aoki/NDXC says 16-19 on weekdays, 14-19 on weekends.

Tnx to Es, I also explore the higher non-BC bands: a couple hams on
``15`` meters, 21335-USB and 21300-USB. I cannot copy their co-channel
contacts, and despite some exchanges, no IDs uttered, geez. No
activity on 12 or 10m. On 11m CB, only a hetty pileup on 27025, or
rather dominated by someone on 27024-AM.

18157.5-USB, Dec 8 at 1914, bears a ham in NC contacting someone in
HI, weaker but also audible. Quick ID from NC sounds like ``W1CP,
QRT``. That fits the ARRL lookup, not in New England at all:
PORTOUKALIAN, GEORGE, W1CP, FRANKLIN, NC 28734 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15550-USB, Dec 8 at 1916, WJHR heard for third time here,
ex-15555, now S9 tnx to sporadic E; 15610 WEWN & 15825 WWCR are also
boosted. 15555 was exclusive, but 15550 must avoid 15-16 UT, Tamazuj.

I hasten out to the field and caradio to check for DX reaching FM, but
none heard, so I mainly bandscan on MW which is possibly also affected
by Es, but lowsun now also means non-sporadic night-like E-propagation
is possible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Altho local mean noon is always 1832 UT, I don`t get around
to bandscanning for winter daytime skywave on MW until 1945 UT on
Saturday December 8. I`m on the caradio at the kitefield north side of
Enid away from power lines (but still lite buzz at highband). Nothing
much on lowband, not even WGN-720, but 1090 has something besides KEXS
KS/MO.

1480, Dec 8 at 1947, Spanish music from KBXD Dallas mixing/atop KQAM
Wichita. 1480 also suffers from KCRC-1390 +90 kHz spur; see OKLAHOMA

1510, Dec 8 at 1948, quit-smoking PSA in strong, then fadeout. Got to
be skywave, but what; 1958 Nabisco ad is atop the jumble. PSA for
USNA.edu, pause 10 seconds for ID: ``ESPN Kansas City, KCTE
Independence`` MO plus some FM translators, and back to an Army-Navy
SBG. Also an intriguing LAH (low audible heterodyne) from algo (KCTE
itself off-frequency? I think it used to be).

1560, Dec 8 at 1950 UT, Vietnamese atop CCI in English, i.e. KGOW
Bellaire/Houston already skywaving almost 500 miles.

1600, Dec 8 at 1951 UT, more Vietnamese about equal level to semi-
local KUSH Cushing OK, i.e. KRVA from The Metroplex TX. This language
tends to stand out on the MW dial!

1700, Dec 8 at 1952 UT, TexMexmx, i.e. KKLF Richardson TX inbooming.

1200, Dec 8 at 2004 UT, breaking news from WOAI.com, San Antonio
already propagating, but was not a few minutes earlier (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15359.50-USB, Dec 8 at 1513, 2-way in colloquial Spanish
INTRUDERS, just finishing as nothing further heard in next dekaminute

Logs
** BOLIVIA [non]. 6134.82, Dec 8 at 0049, no signal from R. Santa
Cruz, despite Ron Howard`s reminder that the last two years at least
on this date, they stayed on later than 0400 past usual 0230 closing,
for some mass religious festival. See:
http://lapatriaenlinea.com/?nota=91587
http://goo.gl/P96G9j
But there is a JBA carrier on 6135.13 which would be its nemesis, R.
Aparecida, BRAZIL.

At 0256 Dec 8 recheck, detect a JBA carrier circa 6134.8 even weaker
than Aparecida, and vs stray Cuban pulse jamming to boot (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6180, Dec 7 at 0114, no signal from RNA here (nor
on 11780), so CRI English relay via CUBA is in the clear yet only
poor, generally much inferior to RHC`s own frequencies on 49m.

6180.09, Dec 8 at 0051, RNA is back on with Brazuguese talk, but heavy
crackle on the modulation and breakup on the carrier, which is S9+25
and off-frequency+plus; unlistenable before the 0100 start of
CRI/Cuba, after which the collision will be worse than ever (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 7 at 0112, RHC English again on an hour early,
undermodulated, while 6165 is on but dead air. Something`s always
wrong at RHC.

5040, Dec 7 at 0126, RHC is S9+20 but JBM in Kriyol. Something`s
always wrong at RHC.

5040, Dec 8 at 0044, RHC is S9+30 but JBM and suptorted in presumed
English; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Dec 7 circa 1700 UT (noon in Cuba), R. Rebelde is still
poorly audible on caradio over a more than 2 megameter fulldaypath.
Now I need to start DXing midday skywave on MW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, 6100, 6060, 6000, 5040, Dec 7 at 0726, all RHC
frequencies are off by now; so is this wrong, or right? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9570.199, Dec 7 at 1940, S8-S5 of dead air or maybe JBM ---
I bet it`s Cairo. Yes! The German hour from Abis on ``9570`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRELAND. 3413-USB, Dec 8 at 0040, ``Shannon VOLMET`` YL ID shortly
after tune-in. Always nice to hear this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 9605, Dec 8 at 0058, surprised to hear English
until I realize it`s just a Voice of Martyrs commercial that WHRI
imposes next to its relays of secular foreign broadcasters; 0059 WHRI
ID prior to the Spanish hour of KBSWR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.931, Dec 7 at 1500, JBA carrier matching precise
frequencies heard circa *0200 and presumed to be R. Madagaskikara.
Now, it would be via longpath.

[non] 6135.000, Dec 7 at 1504 I check the other possible Mad channel,
which also has a JBA carrier but right on-frequency. Likely the 500
kW, 200 degrees from Xian CRI English at 14-16; so we may forget about
any Mad LP on 49m this season even if active (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 11815.711, Dec 7 at 1513, TRT Turkish talk is S9+10/20 and
very off-frequency today unlike 25 hours ago. When logging any VOT
broadcast be sure to check frequency for extravagance (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1959 monitoring: tnx to Richard
Lemke, Alberta for confirming an airing I missed checking:

** U S A. 5130.48, UT Sat Dec 8 at 0035, three rising tones and a
telephone intercept message; lost a live feed? But then talking about
it. 0059 more of that, WBCQ quick boing ID and 0100 start another
program, *not* Allan Weiner Worldwide any more on this frequency ---
bad news for John Carver and many more who can`t get 7490v or 9330v
well, or at all, on winter nights.

Meanwhile, Larry Will forwarded the latest 5130 schedule update, which
would soon be added to the website; so Sat 00-01 UT show is now `The

** U S A. 7490.19, UT Sat Dec 8 at 0100, after some silence, S9 but
only fair vs noise WBCQ starts ``William Tell Overture`` and Allan
Weiner`s first Worldwide interjexion is about an ``Inquisition``. Also
JBA on // 9330.1, but no longer 5130v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

-15555 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6934.8-AM, Dec 8 at 0103, JBA carrier, my first pirate
