Logs
** CANADA. 15034-USB, May 19 at 1812, CHR, Trenton Military, with
aviation weather conditions as of 1800z for Halifax, soon Greenwood
and Gander special report as of 1808. First time in weeks heard with
any info other than ``no report received`` from any/everywhere. Still
interspersed with some NRRs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 2940+, May 19 at 0605, HJNT, Radio Huellas, Cali, as
previously IDed, carrier obviously there despite high storm noise
level here. I am surprised that there have been so few reports of this
second harmonic, in fact the only active Colombian (almost)-SW
station. Where are the DXers elsewhere in North America, let alone
Latin America? Maybe just as well, as attempts to QSL it might lead to
its demise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, May 18 at 2208, RHC Spanish suptorted; wiggle that
patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.240, May 19 at 1345, RHC auto-knocked off 13740.00 for
the second day in a row. Hope wolfie finally catch it too, having
found it non-knocked when he chex. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
But not always the same things all the time.

This is during `En Contacto` DX program, but it doesn`t finish at
1350! By then I am on 15230 hearing the RHC IS amid the show, and more
Arnie, until `En Cia del Dr` finally starts at 1357. Very unusual as
RHC Spanish programming is normally within one minute of nominal.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

[and non]. 15140 should be // 15230, but at 1355 May 19 a JBA signal
on 15140 I cannot match with traces of modulation. Something`s always
wrong at RHC. Could Oman have resumed on 15140 from 9620, where there
is also a JBA carrier? Nothing else is known on 15140 ---

Except: could it be 2 x 7570 WRMI, which is aimed right at us with
Supreme Master TV?? Next time must try to mod-match that. Harmonix
from Okeechobee are extremely rare. WRMI`s other 7 MHz which could
multiply onto 19m would be: 15460 and 15560. The latter has happened
due to mistuning, but soon repaired.

By 1425 May 19, still no RHC on 15140, and 15230 is S9 but JBM.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. With so few extracontinental SW
signals propagating well, we are indeed fortunate that RHC provide
such a rich supply of abnormalities to capture! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** DENMARK. See USA: WTWW

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun May 19 at 0009, The Mighty Farty
KBC via GERMANY, rock music finally good signal a biweek after QSY
from 5960, but S9+10/20 still not enough to overcome nearby storm
noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 18 at 2204, VOT English is on but VP vs RTTY CCI.
ANF on R75 helps. 2205 dead air for a minute at the same time RTTY
stops, S8-S5 and somewhat muffled modulation resuming at 2206 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1982 monitoring: confirmed Saturday May 18 at
2100 on WRMI 9955, S9-S7 following IS/ID loop, and upcut JIP missing
first 8 words, ``1982 ---``, automation out of alignment.

NOT confirmed UT Sun May 19 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, but something else.
This has never been a WOR time and is not on WRMI skedgrid, but WRTH
Update listed it!

Confirmed UT Sun May 19 at 0340 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, barely audible vs
storm noise level, about 27 minutes into, so started circa 0313. Had
to quickly plug in the external longwire to hear enough. Next:

** U S A. WRMI: See CUBA [and non]. 15140

** U S A. 5085, May 18 at 2212, WTWW-2 with rock music, S9/S9+10 but
not enough vs storm noise level. Wonder how long this has been on; all
day?

15810-, May 19 at 1347, WTWW-3 active for the second morning in a row,
rock music, obviously minus but not remeasured to 15809.918 like
yesterday. S9 to S9+10, about the same as neighbor 15825 WWCR-1 both
getting a sporadic-E boost.

And as expected, no sign of WMR Denmark on 15805. Stig Hartvig Nielsen
says, ``World Music Radio on 15805 kHz is probably the station on 19 m
with the lowest power - and with the most simple aerial - so obviously
that makes it a DX catch. It is not a signal you can rely on for
regular listening - tuning in and then expecting a fine signal.

Most of the time, the signal will be absent or barely audible - in the
areas where the signal propagates into (Russia, Southern Europe,
Northern Scandinavia, Brazil, North America - and even once in
Thailand). I had imagined that that would have created more interest
among DX'ers.

I have just purchased a new 3 element yagi for 15805 kHz, so hopefully
soon there will be some improvement in signal strength :-)``

15810-, WTWW-3 is still on with JBA carrier at 1815 May 19, and this
time I check 5085 in the daymiddle --- yes! It is also on with S7 of
country/rock music vs S6 noise level. I think there be a correlation
between these two activities of WTWW-3 and WTWW-2; meanwhile WTWW-1 is
nominal on 9475, not 5830, with SFAW, or rather as on website wtww.us
homepage, SFAWBN, which also displays a long-outdated Dave Ramsey on
9930 claim; plus contradictory times for TOITO. Searching the site for
15810 gets no hits (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** BRAZIL. 9630.453, May 18 at 0535, S5-S7 carrier, maybe unmodulated,
obviously R. Aparecida, which had been missing for some time at
nightmiddle chex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non?]. 11860v, May 18 at 0245, S9 total of open carrier
with slight het and pulse jamming. At first I wondered if Radio MartÃ
carrier were still on from Greenville long after sign-off. But one of
the 11860 sigs is the JBM +10 kHz RHC spur out of 11850, which is
S9+30; the matcher on the low side, 11840 in the clear, is S9. There
is also a slight het on the low side of 11860, which could be Saudi`s
Yemen service, as Gianni Serra, Roma, had measured it April 28 on
11859.96 --- I haven`t heard it well in ages. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, May 18 at 0254, RHC Spanish frequency is OFF. May 18 at
0526, 6060 still off and 6100 too, both now supposed too be English,
leaving only 6165 undermodulated, and 6000 S9+20 with somewhat more
modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9790, May 18 at 0537, huge open carrier at S9+40. Still at
0546 but gone at 0600 recheck. Obviously the 250 kW Habana relay of
CRI not turned off at 0500; RFI 500 kW in French is scheduled here at
0500-0700, but not a trace of it. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13739.239, May 18 at 1329, RHC again self-knocked off from
13740.000, S6-S8; while // 13700 is S9+10. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, May 18 at 1334, RHC is S9 vs storm noise; almost seems
like a fundamental, but unscheduled, really 2 x 6000 also still
audible at S9, then a dead air pause on both. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9330.1, May 17 at 2231, TOMBS via WBCQ old
transmitter, and on old 7490.1, but NOT // --- forced myself to listen
to each for a minute and no match even out of synch. At 2342, BS still
on 9330.15, S8/S9+10 replaying the bit about EMP threat, while 7490.17
now has gospel huxter at S9/S9+10. As we are approaching AAAWWW time,
no sigs detectable on 5130 or 3265, high storm noise level. More at
USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1982 monitoring: confirmed Friday
May 17 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair but fading; it was better before
2200 with VORW. By 2227, S5-S7 vs unnecessary Cuban pulse jamming;
usual overlap with next item as I conclude with ``--- next week``.
Fortunately those words are disposable, non-essential. Andy Sennitt ID
is also cut off before he can finish uttering the WRMI address, as
automation continues to be misaligned, 2230 into gospel huxter in
Spanish.

Also confirmed UT Saturday May 18 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, fair in storm
noise.

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria confirms: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio

** U S A. Continued from SOUTH CAROLINA [non}: 9330.15v & 7490.17v,
May 17 at 2357, WBCQs monitored on two receivers, smoothly merge into
same fill music following separate programming, and at 0000:00 sharp
May 18, ``William Tell Overture`` theme starts, plays complete with no
interjexions! 0003 dead air for a minute; 0004 oncomes Allan Weiner
saying it`s been a rough day, with crazy issues, but undetailed. Once
again he`s very depressed this week and says he almost didn`t want to
do the show. It`s not clear whether this is all about the project, or
the political situation, or both. Says trimulcasting on 3265, 9330,
7490. I listen to the first half on 9, then 7 is better.

I gather that the supertransmitter has not been on since last week, as
the antenna is still not ready; delays due to heavy rain for two
weeks. Funding problems, issues over money; local contractors gouging.
Invites phone calls right away but no one seems to inquire exactly
what the problems are. I keep listening hoping for some useful info.
At 0038 says they are buying an old ladder firetruck for $ 5K to reach
the antenna heights, instead of renting a ladder truck which has been
costing $ 22K per month. New transmitter is so complicated, watch out!
When working, it`s great. Now hopes to get into full-fledged operation
sometime in June. 0045 reads a few pirate items from Free Radio Weekly
just published, including, unattributed, my log of Captain Morgan SW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, May 18 at 1330, WWCR with a sporadic-E boost to
S9+10/20. Still at 1512, S9/S9+20. 6m Es map not checked until 1700
when there is not much, nor on 10m, but latter does show some golden
TE - Trans-Equatorial contacts between SE USA and deep South America
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.918, May 18 at 1512, WTWW-3 rarely on with classic
rock, distorted overmodulation, and as always offset way below
15810.000. S9+10 via my inside longwire due to storming. Still at
1551.

[non] While in the neighborhood, look for World Music Radio, Denmark,
200 watts on 15805, which SHN says is on the air this Sat & Sun at
0700-2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, May 18 at 1511, again this Saturday no signal from
KVOH when `Wavescan` is scheduled; off or not propagating? OSOB is JBA
carrier from 17815 WHRI. KVOH had come back earlier this week after
last week`s outage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, May 18 at 0533, finally no signal from the mystery
open carrier which has been on here several nights (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

U S A. 9330.1v, May 15 at 1332, WBCQ, TOM with some cribbed dialog
about EMP, not BS hoarsing, but // stronger unsynchronized 9395 WRMI.
So not now the 500 kW transmitter, nor have I heard any sign of it
past few days, nor seen any other reports of it. No pertinent twit

Compared program content against CNR1 7345 kHz powerhouse
from Beijing CHN site.
But noted also as jammer against Chinese programs on 6075, 6125, 6135 kHz.

CNR1 program heard for comparision in Seoul-KOR also at 16.19 UT on

CHINA. 11785 kHz, re my report of a special musical event on CNR1
jammer, May 15 before and after 1300 UT,
Ron Howard replies on the WOR io group:

"Hi Glenn, Here in California, I was also listening to CNR1 (6125
kHz.). Live coverage of the opening ceremony of the Conference on
Dialogue of Asian Civilizations [explained in English:]
http://bit.ly/2W9Gru6
being held in Beijing; live coverage ended at 1345. A major event, as
it was attended by Chinese President Xi Jinping. Many performers (song
Auld Lang Syne, etc.). My audio of a portion of today's coverage at
http://bit.ly/2JkBuZz
Ron"

Very good; but I fail to comprehend what "ALS" or "Nessun Dorma"
by Puccini have to do with any Asian civilisation.
Or have the ChiCom coÃpted those too as their very own?

Logs
** CANADA. 1610, May 17 at 0500 UT, music seems Spanish, and also a
second carrier making a slight beat, both looping NE/SW. CHHA Toronto,
Voces Latinas, is usual dominator here. 3-year-old program grid at
http:///chha1610am.ca merely shows `All-Night Music`, but as of last
August log, heard in Portuguese Portuguese, and could also be Punjabi
which is hardly Latin.

I would love to get XEUACH, but probably has migrated to 1130 by now.
More likely than a TIS is CHRN Montreal in almost the same direxion as
Toronto which easily bloxit. How far apart are they? MW Offsets as of
Oct 2018 showed CHRN on 1609.9987, CHHA on 1609.9995, i.e. only 0.8 Hz
difference (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, May 17 at 0530, RHC English is suptorted here at S9+40;
// 6060 modulation good as usual; 6100 less loud; 6165 & 6000 JBM.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

12200, May 17 at 0543, RHC English JBA with ``Chariots of Fire`` theme
to `Cultural Report`, // 6100 as this second harmonic beats the
nightmiddle MUF. NO signals where 2 x other frequencies would land:
12330, 12120-RTTY, 12000. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

9535, May 17 at 0538, RHC English JBA // 6060. This one is never
supposed to be in English but sometimes stays on late after Spanish to
0500. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6100, May 17 at 1149, RHC is S9+10 but JBM, while // 6000 is S9+10 and
undermodulated. Neither provides a second harmonic now; something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 6350, May 17 at 1153, romantic solo song, maybe even
in English, S8-S9 with jamming CCI; similar on 6600 but not positively
// with less QRM. 6350 is Echo of Hope, while 6600 is Voice of the
People. Both operated by the National Intelligence Service, from
different sites, and supposedly with separate programming as
clandestines into North Korea (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 610, May 17 at 1121 UT, 2 minutes before LSR, Spanish DJ
and lively music from SW, presumed XEGS Guasave, Sinaloa, slowly
losing out to KCSP, under which I can still hear a choral NA at 1132.

650, May 17 at 1121, XETNT Los Mochis, Sinaloa, with different Spanish
DJ wakeup show, 1129 ``Buenos DÃas, Yarderos --- Radio 65``, and NA,
1131 back to music. Loops same as sibling 610 station. This is
stronger and holds up longer than XEGS. XETNT callsign seldom heard
and not today. By this late at sunrise, when I would have preferred to
sleep another two hours, the only two audible XEs on the lower band
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 6170, May 17 at *1259:10, RNZI bellbird, S9,
1300 Timesignal and RNZP News, first day of new frequency to avoid
Shiokaze clash on ex-5980; as Adrian Sainsbury had informed me a few
hours before, after I notified him of the problem. No QRM now as
Pyongyang is away for the A-season.

Back on 5980 & 6040, Shiokaze manages only JBA carriers this far into
the dayside, but the collision was terrible further west as Ron Howard
had reported from California (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1160, May 17 at 1205 UT TexMexmx, with fast SAH, 1210 fade,
1212 back with slow SAH; 1213 ad for Rio Bravo Supermarket, and
finefoods.com?; another ad harder to understand by super-hype voice
actor. Loops NE/SW. The only possible SS around here (no more San
Antonio) is KCTO, CoL Cleveland MO (address in Liberty, i.e. Kansas
City market), and in fact Rio Bravo Supermarket chex out in Kansas
City KS (also Wichita). KCTO is 5 kW aiming only north, so hard to
believe I`m getting it so well, as I have a few years before (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, May 17 at 0532, mystery open carrier again, S9-S6
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15730, May 17 at 1303-1305* open carrier S7-S9, likely
Greenville-B routine transmitter check prior to VOA French at 2000-
2030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
