Glenn Hauser logs June 25-26-27, 2017

** ALBANIA [non]. 5850, June 26 at 2300 on caradio, R. Tirana via WRMI, music show first with ME sounds, mentions Ramadan, then quite a variety of presumed Albanian music. 2328 closing and a sesquiminute of IS before WRMI canned ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BENIN. 1566, June 26 at 0507, JBA carrier on the R75; at 0512 not on the NRD-545 or DX-398, but by 0515 detectable on the NRD, presumed TWR Parakou. Nick Hall-Patch in BC and Don Moman in Alberta were hearing this again last night with some audio, also suggesting 1296 Sudan, which is 600 kW further east so fading out earlier; not here. June 27 at quick 0311 check, no 1566 audible --- oops, that`s too early, before nominal *0315 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA [and non]. 5005.0, June 26 at 0518, JBA carrier, presumed RNGE Bata, around variable optimum morning sign-on time to hear it. Presumed Angola also JBA carrier on 4949.74, which used to have a better signal, June 26 at 0519. Maybe too much of their winter signal is getting absorbed in our summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [and non]. 7150, June 27 at 0306, JBA carrier and no jamming; 7180 JBA carrier almost buried by DRM noise jamming extending out to 7172-7188, i.e. Ethiopia vs V of Broad Masses of Eritrea`s two programs recently reactivated in the 40m hamband. Wolfgang Büschel had reported these two frequencies earlier in the Eurevenig to IARU Intruder Watch. But no signal now between 7230 and 7240 for Radio Ethiopia. Sudan, however has an S9+20 bigsig of dead air on 7205 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1883 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria found 9485 missing at the 0900 beginning of the HLR transmission on Sunday June 25, so presumably still off for WOR at 1030. Here, confirmed Sunday June 25 after 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.25v-CUSB, poor. Also confirmed starting at 0301:35 UT Monday June 26 on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5129.82, S9+10 but lots of storm noise; still going this week at 0318 recheck, ending at 0330:30 when: also confirmed UT Monday June 26 from 0330 on WRMI, 9955, S9 to S9+10, but less noise than on WBCQ. Also confirmed Monday June 26 at 2355 the 2330 airing on WBCQ, 9330.26v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Tuesday June 27 at 0038 the 0030 on WRMI, 7730, S9+30. Next:
Tue 2130   WRMI 9455 to WNW, 15770 to NE

** U S A. 7490.07, UT Monday June 26 at 0520, WBCQ ID fires at odd time, returns to The Other Side of Midnight discussing future of space exploration.

7490.10, UT Tuesday June 27 at 0310, Melody Cedarstrom on `Financial Survival` is remembering the late Joyce Riley, apparently a friend and fellow gold-enthusiast. In case you hadn`t heard, John Carver forwarded this:

``We deeply regret to announce the passing of Joyce Riley --- It is with the greatest of sadness that we deliver to you today the heartbreaking news of the death of our friend and fellow patriot Joyce Riley. Joyce died peacefully on June 25, 2017.  
Sent with love and remembrance, The Power Hour

** U S A. 7505, June 27 at 0312, WRNO is AWOL again instead of Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6755.50-USB, June 26 at 0523, 2-way QRM unseems Spanish, maybe Greek, to 6754-USB CHR Trenton Military, too close for both (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
