** ARGENTINA [non]. Further chex for expanded RAE relays on WRMI, May 23-24:
11580, May 23 at 2119, now RAE German has replaced R. Slovakia in English during this hour, including some tango.
11580, May 23 at 2225, this hour is still in Spanish // 5950, not Italian. RAE did upload an Italian hour to WRMI as early as May 22 along with all the other languages. (One has to be careful monitoring, as the Argentine accent in Spanish is Italian-influenced, and Italian service might include clips in real Spanish.)
7730, May 24 at 0015, still `Jazz from the Left` on WRMI, instead of RAE in Spanish, so perhaps other variety programs during this hour will also continue for a while longer.
11580, May 24 at 0146, PCJ Radio International is still running during this hour on UT Wednesday, as an additional frequency for the RAE English hour has not been implemented; remains on 9395 only.
7730, May 24 at 0610, Japanese RAE again, but 5850 is now in BS // 5890 WWCR not synched. 5850 had been running World Music mostly during this hour. The WRMI grid shows the 06-07 Japanese and 07-08 English on BOTH frequencies. With 08-09 Chinese and 09-10 Japanese on 5850 only. Really, 15-16 JST in the summer is too early to expect much propagation to Japan on 5850; and even 7730 may not be making it much that soon.
11580, May 24 at 1316 and 1351 chex, during RAE French hour as heard yesterday, off the air! Or JBA carrier possibly exciter from WRMI, as 11825 WRMIBS is S9. Or Sound of Hope 0.1 kW in Taiwan as in Aoki and/or provoking ChiComjam (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 15520, May 24 at 1400, JBA carrier; could Spain be there on Wednesday? Aoki shows VIRI in Urdu until 1420 daily, so that overlaps with Spain on weekends (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1020, May 24 at 1403 UT check, KOKP Perry is still off the air, as it has been since at least May 20. Is there any explanation at

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1878 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday May 23 at 2130 on WRMI 9455, fair, much better than very poor // 15770. Also confirmed Tue May 23 at 2348 the 2330 airing on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, very poor. Also confirmed Wed May 24 at 1315.5 on WRMI 9955, S9+10. Next:
