** CUBA. 17430, Dec 14 at 1402, JBA carrier. Checking this since Harold Frodge reported RHC here. I explain that it`s a leapfrog mixing product of 17730 over 17580 another 150 kHz beyond; so possible only when both are on the air and preferably inblasting, which they are not now: only S9 on 17580, S5 on 17730. Reverse leapfrog on 17880 not audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935, Dec 14 at 1407, good S9+10 signal in Japanese. YL turns over to OM speaking in an echoey venue. 1429 with contact info .jp, website pronounced in English but too much accent; 1430 mentions kirohertz several times, 1432 switch to different announcer for ID ``Kochirawa Shiokaze desu``. It`s the 1405-1435 relay of Furusato no Kaze on its December frequency, 300 kW, 290 degrees from JSR, Ibaragi-Koga-Yamata, JAPAN; quite better here than I have been getting for Sea Breeze itself before 1400 on 6085, whose English on Thursday I missed today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 7295, Dec 14 at 1434, S9+10 sweet song in waltz time, 1438 Japanese announcements. Per Aoki/NDXC, this is Furusato no Kaze, 1430-1500, 300 kW, 352 degrees via BaBcoCk, Paochung, TAIWAN (also same at 1330-1357, a prepeat? And Korean version before that at 1300-1330) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, Dec 14 at 2216, hard rock pirate, 2220 synthyl ID about four times, ``Welcome to Clever Name Radio`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9883 & 9717 approx., Dec 14 at 1434, big dirty spurblobs in Korean, as the VOA Tinang transmitter on 9800 is radiating these awful spurs again, but sounds OK on S9+10 fundamental. The spurs have easily matchable audio in AM mode, but not with BFO on, where one cannot pinpoint exact frequencies for them, plus and minus ~83 kHz. Scheduled at 1300-1500, 250 kW, one of the numerous 21 degree antennas from Tinang, which means it carries right on across North America (Pusan-Barrow-Sioux Lookout-Ohio-South Carolina) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1908 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday December 13 at 2200 on WBCQ, 7489.928v, fair S9-S7. By 2215 drifted down to 7489.900v. Not confirmed UT Thu Dec 14 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB: No signal (while neighbors: 9265 WINB VP, < 9370 WWRB, < 9395 WRMI).

Despite inaudibility, I am not removing the 9330 broadcasts from my schedule until and unless WBCQ inform me, directly or indirectly, that they are no longer intending to broadcast it. Still shows on sked:

** U S A. 9455, Dec 14 at 0659, 1442 and 1537 chex, this WRMI transmitter, #5, continues to be off the air; easily confirmed by comparing to 9395 & 9955 which are always on. This could impact two Tuesday and one Wednesday broadcast of World of Radio, as well as many other programs, including all those originally on still silent 15770 at 21-22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Dec 14 at 1347 UT, 1352 UT, and 1427 UT chex, KSOK Arkansas City KS is open carrier, dead air, but music finally resumed at 1511 UT check. Who cares? As long as they`ve got the paltry FM translator going, inaudible here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed Dec 13 at 1356, Slovakia in Spanish via WRMI with considerable Cuban pulse jamming, but by 1400 it has abated, but not off, as `FG Radio` is starting its long-awaited new episode; the entire program, without any Beatles breaks, is a phone interview with author Gary Powers, Jr., ``Letters from a Soviet Prison``, his multi-year project to acquire and publish writings of his father, the U2 pilot who was shot down and imprisoned for a couple of years before being exchanged at the bridge in Potsdam for a Soviet spy. He kept a journal while in custody, and was able to communicate with family (not explained why this was allowed).

Very interesting; have not seen or heard him yet on the American book-tour circuit. Maybe why: the book is a private printing of only 500, which can be ordered direct from him while available, $ 25 plus postage from Gary Powers, Jr., P O Box 1356, Midlothian VA 23113, or gpowersjr@coldwar.org. Next year it will be published commercially and available from the usual sources. The host is presumably Nathan Morley, but modestly never names himself on the air.

Further scheduled broadcasts of FG Radio on WRMI, presumably more new episodes from next week, starting Tue?:
Wed 2100 15770 > meaning 9455 [if reactivated]
Thu 0245 9955

** U S A. 9455, Dec 13 at 1054, 1435 and 1640 chex, this WRMI #5 transmitter at 285 degrees is missing, when it should be audible like 9395 & 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Dec 13 at 0701, WEWN Spanish is continually breaking up with crackle, splattering plus/minus 10 kHz. Still scratchy at 1427.

12065, Dec 13 at 1418, WEWN English in Teresa`s RCC talkshow, S9+30 with squeals, and spurblob peaks approx. plus and minus 9 kHz, and double that weaker at 18 kHz --- just like we would hear whenever 15610 arrived with a very strong fundamental signal. I.e., circa 12047, 12056, 12074, 12083. The spur field range is detectable out to plus/minus 25 kHz, 12040-12090, bad news for innocent bystations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775.150, Dec 13 at 1526, KVOH playing `Feliz Navidad` tune, JosÃ? Distorted and considerably off-frequency. Splatter field only 17765-17785, not further into the 18068+ hamband at the moment, altho fundamental is quite strong.

(BTW, I have remeasured and refined the correxion factors on the R75 for precise frequency measurements to the Hz. Probably accurate to within 2 Hz) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Dec 13 at 0705, WTWW-2 is still on with S9+20 of dead air. Wonder when the music stopped? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Correcting date on this one: Dec 12, not 13; fixed:

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Dec 12 at 0701, WRMI is unusually S9+20/30 in the nightmiddle, in language, presumably Hausa, mentioning Kaduna, from Radio Herwa International. (I had not checked a bihour earlier whether Radio Biafra were audible.) OTOH, 13730 New Zealand is but a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1908, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also BIAFRA [non]

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 13 at 0511, WRMI with the R. Biafra guy in English, very poor but recognizable, so confirmed still on this 0500-0530 broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 7850-CUSB, Dec 13 at 0035, no signal from CHU, while 3330-CUSB is nominal; is 7850 off or MUF drop? Anyhow it`s reaudible at 0354 check, S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 11785, Dec 13 at 0703, CRI news in English with Canadian accent pauses to plug its newly branded website http://chinaplus.cri.cn Good S9-S5 via ALBANIA, as the 25m MUF is way up tonight, this aimed 310 degrees USward, and paired with 11855 same parameters in Chinese with het from RÃdio Aparecida on the low side circa 11854.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1908, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Dec 13 at 0031, R. Rebelde is S9+35 but suptorted; wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Dec 13 at 0350, RHC music matches English service frequencies, 6060 & 6165, at lesser levels of modulation. B17 sked as in DXLD 17-45 shows 6060 is supposed to be in Spanish at 0200-0600, then English. This anomaly happens periodically which is why I include ``6060?`` among English DX program frequencies during the span before 0600. 6060 confirmed in English tonight as ``Ed Newman`` is wrapping up the hour at 0357 from Studio 6. Meanwhile I really hear Spanish on weak 11840, 9640, 9535 and strong 5040 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Tue Dec 12 at 1445, checking WRMI at our first opportunity to hear a new episode at last from FG Radio --- but no signal --- must be a power failure at Okeechobee; next chance will be Wed at 1400 on 9955. see USA: WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1908, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11530, Dec 13 at 0701, WRMI is unusually S9+20/30 in the nightmiddle, in language, presumably Hausa, mentioning Kaduna, from Radio Herwa International. (I had not checked a bihour earlier whether Radio Biafra were audible.) OTOH, 13730 New Zealand is but a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1908, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also BIAFRA [non]

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, Dec 13 at 0023 tune-in, immediate ID by synthyl for Clever Name Radio, heavy beat music S8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960, Dec 13 at 0027, German at S9+10 with strange accent presumably TÃrkish, since it`s VOT once again overrunning the English broadcast supposed to end well before 2400. With Emirler so slipshod, I expect eventually this will happen on a UT Sunday colliding with The Mighty KBC via GERMANY which has risked using this 5960 one day a week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1907 monitoring: not confirmed UT Tuesday December 12 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: no signal detectable, as is usually the case now, and we continue to wonder whether it is on the air at all, greatly reduced power and/or just not coping with low-MUF winter propagation. BUT on this day of week, UT Tue, we have another broadcast at 0030, WRMI 7730, and as usual it is VG here, S9+20/30. Also confirmed Tue Dec 12 at 2030 on the WRMI triad: 7780 // 9455 // 11580. Also confirmed Tue Dec 12 at 2130 on 9455 only, as I could not finish new 1908 quite in time for that, but it was available to all stations and listeners by 2230.

WORLD OF RADIO 1908 contents: Anguilla, Australia, Bangladesh, Biafra non, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China non, Colombia, Cyprus non, East Turkistan , Hungary, Indonesia, Iran, Kiritimati, Korea South, Mongolia, New Zealand, Nigeria non, Oklahoma non, PerÃ, Philippines, Romania, Sa`udi Arabia, Somaliland, Taiwan non, USA, Yemen; and the propagation outlook

WORLD OF RADIO 1908 monitoring: Also not confirmed UT Wed Dec 13 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v on what should have been its first SWBC: again no trace of a signal (while neighbors are: 9265 WINB S4; 9370 WWRBS S6 and distorted; 9395 WRMIBS S9; other WBCQ 7489.8 with Alan Sane, S9). Next:

** U S A. 9955, Dec 12 at 1445, WRMI is off --- also no signal on 11580, 11825; still off at 1508, so I leave a receiver with BFO tuned to 9954, and it finally pops on at 1642 with BS in progress; but the 11s are still not back by 1648 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CYPRUS [non]

** U S A. 5830 & 9475, Dec 12 at 1405; and Dec 13 at 0025, still no signals from WTWW-1 on day or night frequency --- but Dec 13 at 0346, 5830 is finally back on after missing for at least five days whenever checked; evidently biblical citations.

5085, Dec 13 at 0346, WTWW-2 is also on with music at S9+30, flanked as always by weak parasites about 5072.1 & 5097.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540, Dec 13 at 0021 UT check, ID right away for KEDA San Antonio and TexMex music, no het from KGBC like last night about 1540.11. As I hoped, Steven Luce in Houston TX has replied Dec 12 in the DXLD yg to my log of KGBC 1540+ Galveston also referring to 1480:

``Glenn, I can confirm that KLVL and KGBC have been // at recent checks here in Houston, running oldies music and a very occasional commercial. Both are brokered time stations looking for new clients. The previous programmer on KLVL (which had moved from KYND, and before that, KJOZ) only lasted a few weeks on 1480. That group has not resurfaced anywhere.

I can hear the het on 1540 during critical hours. Nighttime at my QTH KGBC is completely lost in the co-channel pileup. No useable reception of KLVL at night, either, although day signal is good. During critical hours KLVL often clashes with skywave from KBXD [Metroplex].

Speaking of KYND 1520, the station is still running the promotional loop looking for a new programmer to lease airtime. I have noticed that the station is not signing on until 0800 local (1400 UT) so chances of it getting out during morning critical hours are reduced.

Houston has a lot of brokered time stations on AM, and we may have reached a saturation point, with not enough potential clients for all of them`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
