** EGYPT. 9305, July 23 at 0455, R. Cairo recovered from superbuzz-only last night, to undermodulated Arabic, distortion and crackle, and no spurs audible on the sides (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 13570, July 23 at 1207, Brother Scare via WINB catches my ear as he is admitting to having sinned in the past year in some personal relationship, Devil made him do it, but no further juicy details in next few minutes. How is he? Says he is dying, like all of us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 15725, July 23 I am standing by July 23 from 0501 for V. of South Sudan Revolutionary Radio to come on. There`s the weak carrier at *0503:30, sign-on music of chanting & drumming barely audible from 0504:25. Would somebody please triangulate the source of this, if there is no other way to find out? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 7570, July 23 at 0457, RTI via WYFR concluding English hour which is supposed to be in Spanish, announcing the complete English transmission schedule, guess what, not including this one, just to NAm: ``02-03 5950 9680, 03-04 & 05-06 5950``. I missed checking this on UT July 22, but likely yet another instance in the current errorstring (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15730, July 23 at 1359 tuned in to open carrier for a few sex, off before 1400 arrived. Must have been VOA Somali via MADAGASCAR, 250 kW due north at 13-14 as in HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 13730, July 23 at 1212, VR wrapping up English quarter-hour via CANADA, no mention that this transmission will allegedly be canceled after July 31, unlike most of June when they kept saying English to Americas would be dropped July 1, which it wasn`t. Who knows what will really happen? They don`t (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15430, July 23 at 1401, open carrier off at 1401:15*. HFCC, Aoki and EiBi have nothing scheduled here between 12 and 15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
