The same program is also streamed Mon‐Fri: 6:15‐7:15 UTC, Sat‐Sun: 09:00‐10:00 UTC on All Gospel Radio (http://egradio.org/egr-player).

This program carries quite interesting music and features on the lives of a group of persecuted Christians in China.

We will issue a special electronic QSL card for this broadcast, featuring our 1st QSL card printed by a local Italian artist in 1989. This card will be only available by return email.

We encourage you to listen also to our daily broadcasts on 7125 kHz from 19-20 UTC. Our electronic QSL card will also be available in exchange of all correct (verifiable) reception reports for our broadcasts on Shortwave and on streaming during the month of February.

Wolfgang Bueschel: Log of Febr 18

At 0130 UT on remote SDR unit at New Jersey-US state on east coast:

7280even UZB  TWR India, at 01.24 UT Febr 18 heard typical Himalaya area
Nepalese origin mx, S=9+10dB in NJ-US. Final TWR announcement interval
signal theme at 01.29:55 UT, and followed by RRTM RED Telecom Tashkent
Uzbekistan bcast center TX switch OFF at 01.30:07 UT.

7315even USA  Opening procedure of Voice of Vietnam, viw WHRI relay site
Furman South Carolina, English schedule 01.30-02.00 UT, S=9+20dB,
news read by 17 army force battles in 1979 year,
USSR helped Vietnam on northern border defence war. 01.34 UT on Febr 18.

7495.003 THA  VoA Radio Ashna program in Pashto language, heard powerful
S=9+30dB signal on remote SDR at Delhi India installation.
At 01.37 UT on Febr 18. Audio wideband signal of 11 kHz traced.


And now some monitoring on remote Cape Canaveral Florida state site

MEXICO  6185.007, XEPPM R Educacion from Mexico D.F.,
poor tiny S=5 at 0116 UT on Febr 10.
(wb  df5sx, Rochester NY SDR, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Febr 10)

MEXICO    6184.992 kHz, Febr 16 at 0023 UT, XEPPM is S8-S9 but as usual very
undermodulated with music; 0029 UT Spanish announcement; 0040 UT PSAs
including Secretaria de Salud, plug a concert at 5pm in the Palacio de
Bellas Artes; then some jazz. I'm rechecking it following this news from
Julian Santiago Diez de Bonilla in Mexico City, Feb 15:

"Hola Glenn, A partir de hoy, XEPPM Radio Educacion onda corta 6185 kHz esta
haciendo pruebas con su antiguo transmisor Elcom Bauer con capacidad de 5
kW. Al parecer su transmisor de 10 kW esta averiado. La escucho en estos
momentos con un SINPO de 5. Saludos, Julian Santiago, Enviado desde mi iPad"

Says starting today it's testing with old 5 kW transmitter. Apparently their
10 kW is out of order. But I find that it's no better here than it had been
before.

I had not measured 6185 precisely lately, but a sesquimonth ago it was on
the plus side per Wolfgang Bueschel: "6185.011 kHz, upper side of the
channel now, R Educacion Mexico D.F. fluttery S=8-9 signal at 0311 UT on Dec
29, logs from Cape Canaveral Florida state"
Unless one or both transmitters vary more than this difference of 19 Hz,
that might be a way to differentiate them.
(Glenn Hauser-OK-USA, dxld Febr 16)

MEX+ - and at 05.39 UT on Febr 18 from Cape Canaveral Florida state
SDR unit:

6185.003 1/2 kHz S=9+15dB excellent propagation there tonight, never (*)

(wb  df5sx, Rochester NY SDR, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Febr 10, dxld)

MEXICO 6184.992, Feb 16 at 0023 UT, XEPPM is S8-S9 but as usual very
undermodulated with music; 0029 UT Spanish announcement; 0040 UT PSAs
including Secretaria de Salud, plug a concert at 5pm in the Palacio de
Bellas Artes; then some jazz. I'm rechecking it following this news from
Julian Santiago Diez de Bonilla in Mexico City, Feb 15:

"Hola Glenn, A partir de hoy, XEPPM Radio Educacion onda corta 6185 kHz esta
haciendo pruebas con su antiguo transmisor Elcom Bauer con capacidad de 5
kW. Al parecer su transmisor de 10 kW esta averiado. La escucho en estos
momentos con un SINPO de 5. Saludos, Julian Santiago, Enviado desde mi iPad"

Says starting today it's testing with old 5 kW transmitter. Apparently their
10 kW is out of order. But I find that it's no better here than it had been
before.

I had not measured 6185 precisely lately, but a sesquimonth ago it was on
the plus side per Wolfgang Bueschel:
"6185.011, upper side of the channel now, R Educacion Mexico D.F. fluttery
S=8-9 signal at 0311 UT on Dec 29,
logs from Cape Canaveral Florida state"

Unless one or both transmitters vary more than this difference of 19 Hz,
that might be a way to differentiate them.

Glenn Hauser logs February 16-17, 2019

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Feb 17 at 1426, 1528, no signal from CB despite it being prime Sunday-morning time --- or not so prime yet in LACA; by 1553, dead-air carrier is on, maybe about to start at 1600, but not tracked further. Its transmissions are extremely irregular (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHAD [non]. 12050, Feb 16 at 2045, weak African music surely isn`t WEWN Spanish, rather that`s off again, opening up for R. Ndarason International via ASCENSION at 19-21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100 & 6000, Sunday February 17 at 0657, RHC English frequencies are distorted, while 6060, 6165 and 5040 are already off. But did not get back to 6100 after 0700 before outzonking to tell whether Esperanto resumed. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13779.241, Feb 17 at 1428, this RHC has again knocked way off nominal 13780. Something`s always wrong at RHC. But no spurs found on the 13 or 15 MHz bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 17 at 1430 and 1538 chex, CRI English relay very strong as usual, but extremely suptorted, i.e. only modulation spikes audible, completely unreadable. Wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Feb 17 at 0002, The Mighty Farty KBC with hard rock VG S9+20, but with a SAH --- oh2, there is CCI and I bet it`s TURKEY again overrunning after English supposed to end before 2400 (when I did not tune in in time to check before Nauen came on). Only when music diminishes and DJ talks at 0003 can I hear the understation, and yes, it`s in German, i.e. a VOT SWBC which is not supposed to exist on anyfrequency. Don`t know how long it lasted again this week, but by 0100 S9+10/20 when KBC switches to `The Giant Jukebox` with super-hyped intro, there is no QRM. Uncle Eric had said the Germans were going to get with the Turx about this after last week`s debacle. Sometimes all you can do is get away from the incompetent interferers ASAP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9765, Feb 17 at 0710, RNZI VG as usual, but on this frequency for only one hour now; at 0759-1258 since Feb 12 per sked is on 7330 to Solomon Islands and PNG, rather than general ``Pacific`` for all other non-DRM transmissions, i.e. implying that the NNW-only antenna has been expanded from 2 to 5 hours a night, bad news for North America resulting in weakened 7330 signal thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 17 at 0605, VON is already on tonight in Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4095-AM, Feb 17 at 0423 weak music S6-S8, 0449 still on with DJ live TC as ``11 before 5 o`clock`` and ID ``X-FM Shortwave``, offering QSL for e-reports. Off by next check 0556. Earlier in eve I had patrolled the three main pirate bands and found nothing: 3.4-3.5, 4.0-4.1 and 6.8-7.0 MHz. Tnx for tip on 4095 from Mike Newland in KY at 0235, then reported from across North America. Many more logs of this between 0127 and 0511*:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,51099.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 13590.056, Feb 16 a 1943, JBA carrier with talk catches my ear not only for being off-frequency, but the OSOB except for 13820 Cuban radio war. I hardly expected it to be VOA English via SAO TOME, as listed in Aoki. 13590 used by a number of IBB sites between 13 and 20 for various services: Thailand, Germany, Kuwait, the others presumably closer to nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1969 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, confirmed: ``World of Radio 1530-1600 on  9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat as scheduled B18`` (but at 1200-1400 were on 6190 instead).

Confirmed Saturday February 16 after 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3264.9, Feb 17 at 0013, WBCQ song not // 7490+, 5130+ or 9330+. 0058 enough signal to be sure it`s not // any of the others such as TimTron on 5. I wonder if the 24/7 ``burn-in`` initiation of 3265v is just plugged in to WHVW relay as others have noted at various times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775-, Feb 16 at 1940, no signal from KVOH; surely would propagate at least a trace by this hour if on; Saturday-only English is scheduled 1600-2100. Maybe downtime due to work on `new` transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENINIG DIGEST)

** U S A. 5970, Feb 17 at 0655, WEWN dead air again at S9/S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Feb 17 at 1547, gospel huxter is JBA, a notable event for WJHR to be on and propagating with its pretend-SWBC transmitter. WRTH 2019 still says it`s 250-watts run at 1 kW PEP. Last time I logged was Jan 20, altho Wolfgang Bueschel heard it Feb 1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.977, Feb 17 at 1548, S9+10 fading to S7, WTWW-3 is on after long silence, with gospel huxter // still much stronger 5085 WTWW-2 instead of rock or ham stuff, unusual, and so not // 9475- WTWW-1 SFAW. Tree of Life church, Woodland TN is finishing, 1550 odd time for WTWW ID and address break by Ted. Last time I heard it was Jan 6, on .983, and also reported by Ivo Ivanov. Today too he reports it from 1343, weak/fair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5780.000 & 5840, Feb 17 at 0005, JBA carriers while KBC 5960 is inbooming from Germany, so I wonder if QRP Europeans are showing? 5780 could be Irish pirate Radio Harmony, and 5840 Danish non-pirate World Music Radio; nothing however on 5825, the other Dane (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs February 16, 2019

** AUSTRALIA. 5055, Feb 16 at 1225, JBA carrier presumed 4KZ, but as usual nothing detectable on 5045-LSB, where WORLD OF RADIO should be running on Unique Radio this alternate Saturday; next: March 2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4885, Feb 16 at 0702, R. Clube do Pará is S9+10, as the best ZY signal on 60m is even better than usual; hyper DJ and music on ``Madrugada`` show, NOT for the dozing at 4+ am local. With BFO there always seems to be a second slightly offset undersignal, presumably the other ZY if not later Korea South.

DST in Brasil ends Feb 17; not including Pará which is on UT-3 yearound. Here`s a useful map showing DST/non-DST areas. DST observed roughly in the southern (not eastern) half: https://www.timeanddate.com/time/change/brazil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5910, Feb 16 at 0357, Chinese/English les from CRI relay, S9+20 but suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 16 at 0700, S9+10/20 of dead air, implying that this frequency missing for a couple of weeks may have been back for the 05-07 English bihour. Maybe 6100 will also succeed for Esperanto 24 hours later? 6000 carrier also still on with samehum, while 6165 & 6060 are already off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Feb 16 at 1400, I copy the complete RHC frequency announcement: now closing 11950 and 6150 (but 11950 was already off as I tuned by it); continuing until 1600 on: 15140, 11760, 9535, 9640, 13700. In that disorder, and that`s all, NOT mentioning 13780 and 15230 where it is also still running past 1506! Nor mentioning the FM and non-FM spurs out of 13700 and 15140, but not much of them today, only traces circa 14969, 15168, 15311. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. 9540, Sat Feb 16 at 0500, no signal in OK, from the new clandestine/target broadcast Radio Sinit for Eritrea, as first reported in WRTH Update, but I am getting it well via UTWente SDR, all talk so far at 0507; I remind WOR iog that it`s time for their only weekly broadcast, as first reported here:

``RADIO SINIT ERITREA (NEW ENTRY)

(WRTH Update Feb 4 via WORLD OF RADIO 1969, DXLD) Sinit --- first news of this one (gh)

FRANCE, New clandestine via TDF Issoudun - Radio Sinit Eritrea
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/02/new-clandestine-broadcast-via-tdf.html
(Ivo Ivanov, SWLDXBulgaria News Feb.7, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Viz.:

0500-0600 on  9540 ISS 250 kW / 139 deg to EaAf Tigrinya/Arabic SatПубликувано от Observer в 4:26 PM (via DXLD)``

But no one replies as having monitored it directly or indirectly, just me for the rest of the hour:

0508 OM speech; 0511 mention al-Qa`ida; 0515 HOA music and YL talk; 0517 vocal HOA music; 0525 OM talk; 0527 instrumental music; 0529 YL announcement, music, mention of Eritrea; 0530 switch to Arabic, ID, long speech; 0545 mix including several long YL IDs, 0547 song, 0551 ID and more speech; 0556 mentions Phoenix, Arizona, and many mentions of Amerikiya; 0558* cuts off air incomplete.

I could not make out any ID during the Tigrinya half; more familiar Arabic, something like ``huna idhaat al watan eritrea`` which google approx. translates as ``Here are the sermons of the homeland of Eritrea``; and some longer YL IDs with more words in them.

Meanwhile I try to find out more about it. Google translate does not extend to Tigrinya or even Oromo, so in case it`s similar I try Amharic for Sinit. It comes up with some words similar to sinit, but probably misleading: meaning drunkenness, seduxion, or stingy. No hits for Sinit in Arabic.

Then to the website WRTH provided. It has some English, and audio going back to their first broadcast on Dec 1, 2018, but no leads as to who`s behind it or what their mission may be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545, Sat Feb 16 at 1509, JBA music, HOA? Except for JBA 17615+ Saudi Arabia, it`s the OSOB: station I discovered a few weeks ago and rendered thus in Feb 4 WRTH Update:

``SOWT AL-SOMOOD (VOICE OF STEADFASTNESS) (EX ALSMOOD)

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 730, Feb 16 at 1342, amid Mexican music, ``La Mexicana, 107.1``. So this remnant 50 kW XEHB from Hidalgo del Parral, is not even worth mentioning; but AM is to stay per IFT in the IRCA Mexican Log. It`s the best/only lowband XE propagating this long after 1318 LSR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6184.992, Feb 16 at 0023, XEPPM is S8-S9 but as usual very undermodulated with music; 0029 Spanish announcement; 0040 PSAs including Secretaría de Salud, plug a concert at 5pm in the Palacio de Bellas Artes; then some jazz. I`m rechecking it following this news from Julián Santiago Díez de Bonilla in Mexico City, Feb 15:

``Hola Glenn, A partir de hoy, XEPPM Radio Educación onda corta 6185 kHz está haciendo pruebas con su antiguo transmisor Elcom Bauer con capacidad de 5 kW. Al parecer su transmisor de 10 kW está averiado.La escucho en estos momentos con un SINPO de 5. Saludos, Julián Santiago, Enviado desde mi iPad``

Says starting today it`s testing with old 5 kW transmitter. Apparently their 10 kW is out of order. But I find that it`s no better here than it had been before.

I had not measured 6185 precisely lately, but a sesquimonth ago it was on the plus side per Wolfgang Bueschel: ``6185.011, upper side of the channel now, R Educacion Mexico D.F. fluttery S=8-9 signal at 0311 UT on Dec 29, logs from Cape Canaveral Florida state``

Unless one or both transmitters vary more than this difference of 19 Hz, that might be a way to differentiate them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.95, Feb 16 at 0657, S9+20, VON IS of fluting and drumming, normally heard one hour earlier prior to Hausa at 0600. Unknown if they start an hour late, or is really interval before switching to Fulfulde or something at 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 960, Sat Feb 16 at 1323 UT, local KGWA Enid found to be in dead air as I am doing JBA TP MW carrier bandscan, so no splatter on 954 or 963, but nil heard there. 

I also null 960 as much as possible, hearing only a trace of another station. By 1340, KGWA remodulates. O, how I long for the good ole days when KGWA often provided for months a ``Fox-hole``, 5 minutes of dead air at local midnight allowing me to accumulate a number of other 960 logs from as far away as Calgary straight thru KGWA (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 6125.0, Feb 16 at 0400, VOT timesignal and manages to modulate today! But opens with canned intro of WRONG English schedule for A-season, which even then was not entirely correct, as I previously noted. Poor S8-S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY [and non]. 12035.0, Feb 16 at 1403, VOT is blasted away by rather heavy stray(?) Cuban pulse jamming during what may have been Letterbox; gaining a bit later when only filling with music. 11815.0 Turkish is also not +0.7 kHz off-frequency today.

13685.716, Feb 16 at 1423, instead the Emirler shifter is here today for the end of the VOT Uighur hour, JBA carrier vs no WINB QRDRM since it`s Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1969 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 kHz CUSB on Feb.16
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/02/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_16.html

WOR 1969 confirmed Saturday February 16 from about 1229:53 on WRMI 9955, thus overlapping World Music fill and no ID, VG S9+10/20

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3264.9, Feb 16 at 0020, JBA carrier from WBCQ-4? or -5?

5130.49, UT Sat Feb 16 at 0059, WBCQ concluding the ``Far Right Radio Show`` (or was it ``Alt-Right``?), no ID and 0100 into march theme of weapons show ``from bare hands to AR-15``, S9 and getting louder now, ``Weapons Wednesday`` is apparently the title regardless of current DOW, with Mark & Don. 

So `Allan Weiner Worldwide` will not be on here, despite being better received than weakening VP primary 7490.18, while 9330 is inaudible, off? and 3264.9 still JBA carrier. The latter is totally useless here even during primetime; must be very low-powered.

AWWW starts barely audible on 7490.18v, enough to hear his first exclamation ``No more hamburgers!`` before fadeout. Usually the last ~10 minutes contain some station info, reading and replying to e-mail, some pirate info from FRW, so I bring up the webcast about 0150, and glean one tidbit of use: says ``3265`` is 24/7 like 9330. What could John H Carver hear? He mailed already at 0154:

``5130 is back to the militia. 7490 is too noisy to copy. No signal on 9330 but I find them on 3265. Noisy but able to copy; however that quickly changes. Allan and a very animated Angela in the studio discussing different forms of energy besides oil. Compares Elon Musk to Thomas Edison. Sounds like Tom Barna is in the studio with them but it's difficult to tell. Difficult to copy but they seem to be on the same topic. Allan announces that 3265 is running 24/7 for awhile. I'm receiving the signal at almost S3. At 0141 show becomes very difficult to copy and I lose the signal at 0146. John, Mid-North Indiana`` 

Only other reports of 3265v:

``Hi Glenn, Feb 15, noted for the first time a new signal on 3264.9, during my local morning, at 1058 & 1120, with faint music, but extremely weak; by 1207, too weak for any audio (only carrier). Ron Howard, California``

``USA WBCQ Monticello Maine, near New Brunswick Canada border line. 3264.912 --- x.917 unstable wandered upwards signal around 1058--1110 UT on Feb 16. Guitar pop music traced at NJ-US remote installation.S=9+20dB at peak reception much better closer to Maine/New Brunswick-CANADA [selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Febr 16)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, Feb 16 at 1446, this WRMI-1 is unusually on, poor with music. Transmission sked grid shows SMTV from 1400 only on Sundays but this is Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265V, Feb 16 at 1435, WINB carrier is *really* wobbling during gospel huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Feb 16 at 1440, huge S9+40/50 WWCR signal overloads my poor R75 unless I turn off preamps: 8880, I expect usual mixture with strongest local KCRC (7490+1390), but I also have weak // 7490 WWCR audio on 8210, which is 720 kHz above, and there is certainly no local signal there to mix. Possibly it`s a leapfrog over 7850-CHU, which is halfway between, 360 kHz above and below, but not very strong and cannot hear any timesignals on 8210 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, Sat Feb 16 at 1343 UT, ``Accentuate the Positive`` tune playing, 1345 Bible fund-raiser talk, 1346 ``Footsteps from TWR`` with Lauren Libby, president; says they use 230 languages, and shortwave listening is increasing, getting back in style (?); Xmas special on KTWR got good response from China, etc.; also plugs several-country coverage of hi-power AM without detailing Bonaire or Central Asia. Looping N/S, this is obviously via KMMJ Grand Island, Nebraska, 10.5 kW-limited sked. While now, and never do I hear one of my most-wanted Okies, 220-watt daytimer 750 KSEO Durant! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 13680, Sat Feb 16 at 1401, VOH Africa weekend-only transmission, `Your Weekend Show` with Bob Biermann musing about radio technology. (See also his comments in next DXLD about how there is no new crop of engineers coming along to replace those who know SW and AM). 13680 is good and fully readable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search Feb 16 from 1318: 747-NW, 702-WSW, 693-?, 594-?, 882-?, 972-NW, 1098-W, 1188-?, 1503-?; 1566-NW at 1327, the strongest and FEBC S Korea of course. Could not get DX-398 DF on some of the others, too weak and/or both FE and DU. 1566 seemed to have a second carrier causing very slow beat, maybe also WSW, but a 5 kW from Victoria would be unlikely; how about 200 watts from Norfolk Island?

The K7RA Solar Update

Another week passed with no sunspots, and as of February 14 it has been over two weeks since any sunspots were observed, the last on January 30. February 7 through 13 saw average daily solar flux decline from 71.1 to 70.4, compared to the previous seven days. Geomagnetic indices were lower, with average daily planetary A index declining from 11.6 to 8.1, and average mid-latitude A index going from 8 to 6.1. Lower geomagnetic activity is generally good for HF propagation.

Predicted solar flux over the next 45 days is 70 on February 15-21, 72 on February 22-25, 71 on February 26 through March 9, 70 and 71 on March 10-11, 72 on March 12-24, and 71 on March 25-31.

Predicted planetary A index is 12 and 8 on February 14-15, 5 on February 16-18, then 12, 20, 12 and 8 on February 19-22, 5 on February 23-26, then 12, 15, 15 and 10 on February 27 through March 2, 5 on March 3-4, then 8, 5, 8, 10, 8 and 5 on March 5-10, 8 on March 11-12, 5 on March 13-17, then 12, 20, 12 and 8 on March 18-21, 5 on March 22-25, 12 on March 26, 15 on March 27-28, 10 and 5 on March 29-30.

The prediction of solar flux always at 70 or above over the next 45 days is a positive sign for HF propagation, and the spring equinox returns on March 20, indicating gradually improving HF propagation.

Geomagnetic activity forecast for the period February 15 until March 13, 2019 from F.K. Janda, OK1HH.

Geomagnetic field will be:
Quiet on February 16-17, 24-26
Quiet to unsettled on February 18, 27, March 3-4, 6-7, 10-11
Quiet to active on February 15, 23, March 5, 8-9, 13
Unsettled to active on February 19, 22, March 1-2, 12
Active to disturbed on February 20 (- 21), 28

Solar wind will intensify on February (19,) 20-21, (22, 28) March (1-3, 6-9, 13). Parenthesis means lower probability of activity enhancement.

Jon Jones, N0JK, writes to us from Lawrence, Kansas, where he operates on 6 meters with a very modest antenna and low power: "A set of rare off season 6 meter Sporadic-E openings appeared on the evening of February 7, and again the morning of February 8.

“February 7 sporadic-E appeared suddenly on 6 meters starting around 2300z from W2, W3 to W4, and W4 to WØ.

“The next morning February 8, there was strong sporadic-E on 50 MHz across the eastern United States and Canada. NØLL (EM09) worked short Es (high MUF) to W4HLR (EM56) at 1450z. The opening finished around 1845z with K9MU (EN44) working VE1JF (FN74).

“The only months with less Sporadic-E than February in North America are:  March, September and October."

NEW ZEALAND  One notices, the winter also goes to the end of the shortwave {northern} condition in the next 2 to 3 weeks, the spread on the long path will be over Pacific and Latin America from NZL to Europe to be close early in our European morning.

7330.006 kHz exact, just at 0945 UT I heard trumpet solo from Rangitaiki, now is at us fade-out and under the sward/threshold of the string only to suspect.

S=9+20dB in Cape Canaveral FL-US at 09.50 UT on febr 16.

In the afternoon, R NZi also transmits at 7330 KHz between 17 and 19 UT, but is sandwiched by two 500 kW 'sweethearts from Beijing and Urumqi China powerhouses'.

Meyerton and BBC (Re: Glenn Hauser logs February 14, 2019)

Already a year ago there had been internal announcements of upcoming cuts to radio services for Africa, to be implemented at an undefined point after summer 2018. To be cut, as announced back then, are Hausa 1400-1430 and 1930-2000 as well as Somali 1400-1500 and 1800-1830 plus weekend editions 1100-1130. These announcements concerned only the production side, so it is quite possible that reductions of shortwave transmissions will go much beyond that.

Glenn raised the question about other customers: In recent years TWR, RFI and NHK already went away. What remains are three hours of AWR and one hour here, two hours there from DW, VOA and Radio Dabanga. Nothing that would be enough to keep such a comparatively large facility busy.

Frankly, I found the mention of customers "encouraging" Sentech to continue quite bemusing. What do they expect them: Raising tariffs for other services, essential to domestic customers, to cross-subsidize an uneconomic facility for first world broadcasters? Seriously?? (The other discussed points were just wishful thinking anyway. Btw, a scenario of SABC continuing from elsewhere would pretty likely not be limited to Talata Volonondry but also involve transmitters elsewhere, like in Europe.)

This reminds me of something the then boss of BBC World Service, Peter Horrocks, said years ago: We'll cut shortwave transmissions but we'll be back if we are needed. As if he seriously assumed that providers would keep facilities that no longer see sufficient use (something the BBC itself does not do, just remember the closure of their Seychelles transmitters in 2014). And as if he seriously expected people to keep shortwave radios at hand that no longer yield programming of interest (the "of interest" is important here; I think further explanations are unnecessary).

Glenn Hauser logs February 14-15, 2019

** CUBA. 5990 CRI relay, 6000 RHC, Feb 15 at 0051 both are suptorted, so cannot make anything out of their leapfrog on 6010; likewise suptorted is 5025 Rebelde, while 5040 & 6060 RHC are OK, presumably reflecting contrary situations at two different sites. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 15 at 1523, CRI Plus English relay is S9+20 and suptorted. This is hardly unusual, but qualifies for ``something`s always wrong at RadioCuba`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 13670, Feb 14 at 1812, MWV is back in English with `African Pathways Radio`; and also the next English hour from 2000 on 11965, rather than Arabic which occupied both hours yesterday, another of their too-frequent mixups. 2000 preview mentions opening music, and closing music, then proceeds to play the closing music now, something from their ``beloved Madagascar``. So they are mixed up even within the programs. Good signals as usual from the near-antipodes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690-, Feb 14 at 1814, VON JBA with off-frequency carrier before Spain or Madagascar collide; and also DRM noise 15115-15120-15125, presumably both in English now, and are they //? By next check at 1950, no DRM audible. Wolfgang Bueschel reported on same date:

``Wonderful English language program audio from Abuja today Febr 14 at 1745 UT on 9689.920 kHz, S=8-9 or -77dBm signal here in southern Germany. And also at 1804 UT still on 2nd Abuja unit in DRM mode on 19 meterband: S=9+10dB data block of 10 kHz broadband, 'notch snick' central visible on 15119.861 kHz exact, and a separate 'string' visible on 15120.610 kHz exact. 73 wolfie df5sx`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615.066, Feb 15 at 1410, JBA carrier from SRI, and also JBACs on not-way-off-frequencies 17705, 17895. This is notable only because these Saudisigs are almost the only signs of life on 16m after sunrise here, but even they have been inaudible lately. Always-skewed 17615.066 suffers a transmission break at 1414. By 1458 only the lowest is audible, still at 1520 when I measure it. But at 1525, much stronger SRIs on 15435, 13710. HFCC info for each:
17895 12-15 295 degrees
17705 12-15 310
17615 13-16 190
15435 15-18 320
13710 15-18 295
HFCC doesn`t care, but WRTH shows the two different programs: Qur`an on 17895, 17615 [sic], 13710; General Arabic on 17705, 15435 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7570 & 7730, Feb 15 at 0154, WRMI dead air during TOMBS, but soon resumes. Both frequencies much weaker than usual, only S9 max, propagation disturbance? 7730 is always somewhat weaker than 7570 here which is beaming right at us while 7730 is 30 degrees CCW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 4840, Feb 15 at 0710, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR when supposed to be TOMBS; may well last all-night but I`m going to sleep (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 7355, Feb 15 at 1529, B-B-C- chimes at S9, 1530 opening Korean; 5845 shortly at 1533 find VP //. Both are 250 kW, 25 degrees via SINGAPORE until 1830. 1530-1830 scheduling originated when KOREA NORTH was temporarily on half-hour time-zone. But 7355 supposedly has been extended to start at 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15770, Feb 14 at 1952, dead air from WRMI, supposed to be Supreme Master TV. I continue monitoring silence until 1959.5 WRMI ID autofires and cut off the air. 5950 is supposed to take over SMTV at 2000, and do have a JBA carrier already but can`t tell what if anything be modulating it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5130.5, VP UT Fri Feb 15 at 0059, this WBCQ is on, contrary to never-up-to-date websked showing nothing between 0330 Wed and 0100 Sat --- now ending some talk show with phone 323-2943; ID and 0100 into another show, all about guns, mentioning Wednesday, so delayed a day? 0200 abrupt cut to ID and some music; 0203 someone ``proclaiming the gospel`` from P O Box 23110(?), definitely in Bethlehem PA. Still VP signal.

7490.18, UT Fri Feb 15 at 0157, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide` mentioning that `Dead Frog Radio` is coming back from next Friday for two hours following AWWW at 9 pm ET, produced by an inmate at a federal prison; how does he do it? Then e-mail from the guy who has arranged to be QSL manager for XEG-1050 Monterrey NL. I already heard this episode months ago, but random listeners to this filler might assume it`s current about DFR. Such are the drawbax of playing unedited old live episodes which do not refer to specific dates. 01-02 UT Fri on 7490 is indeed an ``available time slot``, to be followed at 02-03 by VORW --- NOT, as 7490 then goes off the air.

3264.9, Feb 15 at 0200, JBA carrier so presumably WBCQ still testing here; has it been on every might since Monday, all night? Sked still says ``There are no scheduled transmissions on 3265 KHz at this time`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5072.166, Feb 15 at 0702, WTWW-2 is running late again, all-night? with rock music, so I pin down exact frequencies of the parasitic spurs always accompanying 5085, the opposite one measured on 5097.838, i.e. 12.838 plus and 12.834 minus. So the fundamental should be slightly askew too: but measured independently as 5085.000, so within 2 Hz margins of error (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13685-13690-13695, Friday Feb 15 at 1408, no signal from WINB non-DRM carriers below 13690, nor DRM noise above 13690, supposed to run M-F at 11-17. This hugely asymmetrical transmission, unique to WINB on 13690 (& 7315 M-F at 07-09, neither registered as DRM), remains to be explained why it occur. What does it look like on dreamscreens? And was this on air in time for `SW Radiogram` at 1500 Fri? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775-, Feb 15 at 1522, still no signal from KVOH, off or not propagating? Still zilch at 1942 check. After my last report, Ray Robinson of KVOH replied, ``There are views of the KVOH antenna site, transmitter building and Harris SW100 transmitter in this month's Voice of Hope video update, here [9:36]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jG4YXoopZOM. The Harris is finally fully refurbished and all hooked up, almost ready to turn on. The RCA transmitter's days are numbered! Ray.``

Amid all the platitudes, bits of info are gleanable: Tayloe says power will be ``doubled`` --- does that mean running both transmitters? The ``new`` Harris is axually an old one from KTWR Guam, which has been ``totally rebuilt`` with ``thousands of hours of work over three years``, ``we are within weeks of signing on``; and it will be ``good for 20 years unless the Lord comes first``. Programming will also be increased on all three stations, Israel and Zambia too.

Ethan Best, KC9YDN, and I, wonder ``Will 9975 kHz be returning soon?`` No reply about that. During long inactivity, KVOH has kept imaginary registrations of it in HFCC as 00-08 UT, 100 kW and 100 degrees, like 17775 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, Feb 15 at 1535 UT, KLEY Wellington KS is still off the air; random daytime chex have not found it since last logged Dec 2, altho I wasn`t paying much attention until late January. Have they notified FCC that they are off or applied for STA? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Feb 15 at 1537 UT, 50 kW KBXD Dallas is still in Vietnamese and still propagating 2+ hours after sunrise as QRM to much closer groundwave KQAM Wichita in English, and making a slow SAH of 45/minute = 0.75 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540, Fri Feb 15 at 1540! UT, blues music with narration, loops NE/SW with some fades past 1549, suspected KXEL Waterloo IA still skywaving, best on the E-W longwire, while Spanish from Dallas dominates on the DX-398. Confirmed at: http://www.kxel.com/program-schedule/

Our American Stories with Lee Habeeb | 8-10amwhich does not link to show site, but I find it: http://www.ouramericannetwork.org/

``There's no politics at Our American Network, just stories. Daily bringing the campfire scene to your ears with our first show Our American Stories.``

And a large archive of listenable episodes, probably this one: http://www.ouramericannetwork.org/story?title=The-Fred-Davis-Blues``The Fred Davis Blues --- Howard Husock shares a story of music, friendship, and tremendous talent lost to violence.``

Seems like a worthwhile show and a much-needed respite from AM radio politix, like Redeye Radio and Rush also on the KXEL sked, which is yet somewhat diverse. Or find anotherstation:http://www.ouramericannetwork.org/find_station(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
