** ARGENTINA [non]. 11580, Friday June 2 at 1358, WRMI with jazz music fill after RAE French hour, 1359.5 WNYW-style ID, 1400 once again RAE Spanish for the second day at this hour, opening with its usual music downbeat, intro as ``primera edición del primero de junio``, i.e. repeat of the Thursday 2200 on 5950.
Now we see that the WRMI sked grid has been updated to show RAE Spanish at 1400-1500 Monday-Saturday on 11580. This presumably compensates for the originally planned 0000-0100 on 7730, which has not been implemented, to the relief of a variety of programs in that span.
Due to confusion last week about the timing for RAE`s DX program in English, I am listening continually UT Saturday June 3 from 0100 on WRMI 9395, VG. This week it lasts from 0114 to 0125. I seldom quote from on-air DX programs since they hardly ever have any newsworthy material not already published in DXLD/yg. But to get us started with this show, here are my complete notes about it for the record:
Opening title seems to be ``actualidaddx.com.ar``. Asks for reception reports with recordings [it`s always loud and clear here]. DX news mostly comes from Observer, Bulgaria but not credited. Clips of each item are however added, perhaps from remote receivers or online if not receivable in Argentina. Music bridges between each: Deutscher Wetterdienst, 6180 at 20 in German with 100 watts [no, 10 kW per WRTH]. V. of Oromo Liberation from Nauen to Ethiopia, Wed/Fri/Sun 1700-1730 on 15420 with 100 kW, and ``hamming`` from Ethiopia. Belarus on SW via Germany new sked, 22-24 on 3985, 1 kW. R. Xoriyo in Somali via France at 1600-1630 on 17630, 500 kW, Tue/Sat, with hamming. DP0— Seewetter, via Kall at 0730-0800 on 7130 [sic] with 1 kW; 1200-1230 on 7310 in German Mon-Fri. Mexico, XEINFO 1560-AM full ID clip, to illustrate Grupo Radio Centro which has closed its 790, 1150 and 1030 stations, consolidating programming on 690 and 1110. CNN reports ISIS claims credit for attack on TV station in Jalalabad, east Afghanistan, killing 6 [no clip]. VOV and Cuba meet at ICRT. Production by Arnaldo Slaen, edited [translated?] by name uncopied, presented by Fernando Farrías. Outro [only] refers to program as ``DXers Special``, every Saturday. [Perhaps will be repeated on UT Tuesday again, regularly?]
After music break, 0129 plugs a new program ``talking with listeners`` based on their comments to firstname.lastname@example.org but doesn`t say when it airs. This time gives frequencies only as 5850 & 7730, which apply to the 07-08 UT repeat, not now. 0131 next program is `Stories of the Bicentenary` about early racism, voiced by Mirian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 6754-USB, June 2 at 0615 check, CHR, Trenton Military is gone again, must be sporadic. 15034-USB, June 2 at 1342, day frequency is also AWOL; not due to propagation as 14670-CUSB CHU is S9.
15034-USB, June 2 at 2012, CHR is back but very poor at S2-S3, mixture of no-report-received aviation weather from Shearwater, but with reports from Greenwood, Gander, Halifax with timestamps of 2000Z! But terminal forecasts which follow for same aerodromes, are all NRR. Then ID at 2015 and correct!!!! time as 2015 zulu. Progress (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 9745, June 2 at 2007, poor S7 signal vs high noise level of Firedragon music jamming, per Aoki vs RFA in Chinese via Kuwait at 19-21. Seems the only signal from east Asia making it here at this hour, and for sure no Bahrain, which in its area may be getting a bit of bother from Kuwait if not FD! I thought the USG was on good terms with Bahrain too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11635-AM, June 2 at 1830, BST-1 caradio memory stops here, for 5-digit YL Spanish spy numbers --- and NO interruptions by digital blaaps, just voice numbers, and very little pauses between groups (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 7585-AM, June 2 at 0611, JBA carrier, then a trace of Station YHWH modulation, S7 vs S9 storm crashes. Latest I`ve ever heard this one to be on the air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-AM, June 3 at 0210, JBA carrier here from some pirate, but too much storm noise from two regions in northern Texas, not a bit of lighting in Oklahoma. A few other logs here as unID:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, June 3 at 0210, pirate music here until 0217 long announcement; too weak vs S9+10 storm noise from TX, but at times I imagine the voice could be Dick Weed of Radio Free, What-ever. What do HF Undergrounders say? Yes, RFW per lots of logs here as early as 2245 June 2:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9455, June 3 at 0226, Brother Hysterical via WRMI has dredged up yet again his rant of more than a year ago against yours truly, asserting that he doesn`t give a damn what Mr Glenn Hauser thinks; refers to a date May 13, as I had merely reported the fact that some of his frequencies were not appearing as scheduled; and also goes ballistic about the issue of whether Napoleon ever ruled Michigan, which was something Harold Frodge brought up, not me. Whoopee! Here we go again. In his extremely repetitive scheduling, could be this will now be appearing regularly at approx :25 past various hours. But this time he interrupts himself at 0228.5 to talk about imminent Pentecost, but instead of June 4, the 2017 date he has been running into the ground, he mentions live services we are invited to, the weekend of June 10-11-12! I looked it up and the last year when Pentecost was on June 12 was 2011!! That should surely confuse his already clueless psychophants (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6604-USB, June 2 at 0615, New York Radio (WSY70 the listed callsign, never announced), at least is on the air unlike 6754 Trenton, but NYR is full of ``missing`` VOLMET for Bermuda, Nassau, Orlando, Atlanta, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, UT Saturday June 3 at 0203, instead of Oldies, WRMI is running Ask WWCR, instead of Viva Miami, the one about NASB meeting discussing DRM, etc. So there will be no VOA 5-minute news inserted this quarter-hour as others have reported more than once. 0224 recheck ``greatest music of all time on 9395 and 9455 kHz, WRMI``. So the second frequency has been added, except during this hour it`s BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105 & 9930, June 2 at 2010, two-thirds of WTWWs are off, leaving only 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Correxion to this sporadic E FM DX log, May 30 UT:
``101.5, at 1816, 855-773-8634 for RPFunding.com, AETNA, CNS Health, 904-AC number, Virginia College ad, ``V1015.iheart.com``; 1818 RDS finally lox in: V_101.5__ and then with music info: / THROWBAC / BACK-HIP; 1823, ``All new V101.5`, Throwback, `Hip-Hoppin` R&B``. No fit for any FL station, so search for any such 101.5 finds:

Radio-locator.com indeed does show it well into Alabama, closer to Florence. St Joseph itself anyway: 949 km/only 590 st mi``
Your V-101.5 is more likely Brunswick, GA. Jacksonville market, 904 Area Code (Dave Bright, Sent from my iPhone, WTFDA gg via DXLD)
Tnx, Dave. O, I should have pursued the AC rather than the slogan. Who would expect more than one ``V101.5``? It all depends on punxuation. In the Slogan field of the WTFDA DB (but not the other fields!), WSOL has a hyphen: V-101.5, while searching on V 101.5 with a space and no hyphen leads only to WMXV. V101.5 with no space or hyphen leads nowhere. WSOL should be required to utter ``V hyphen 101.5``!
[WSOL-FM 101.5 BRUNSWICK GA 100.0 kW H&V, 446.0 m HAAT, 30-49-16, 81-44-14, HD, 15A7 - 'KCDR', V101.5 - Song/Artist, V101.5 - Song/Artist, Rhythm and Blues, V-101.5, CLASSIC HIP-HOP] 1622 km/1008 st mi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
WSOL --- And why haven't they changed calls to something with a "V" in it?! At least you are getting skip. I need better equipment! (Dave, WTFDA gg via DXLD)
