Perù: Radio Tarma tests new tx

Radio Tarma Internacional estará probando su nuevo transmisor de 2k en onda corta por los 4775 kHz banda de 60 metros. Habrá una Qsl especial para todos aquellos que envíen informes de recepción con clips de audio por e-mail: gerenciageneral@grupomonteverde.com.

Yahoo Groups is closing down and all content will be deleted

A piece of internet history is being consigned to the rubbish heap. Yahoo has announced that the once-popular Yahoo Groups service is being closed down later this month.

More than this, the huge amount of information and exchanges that have been uploaded will not be archived. Before the end of the year, all Yahoo Groups content will be permanently wiped out -- so if there's anything you want to keep, you'll have to act swiftly.

When October 28 rolls around, it will no longer be possible to upload content to Yahoo Groups. Less than two months later -- on December 14 -- Yahoo will delete all previously posted content. In making the announcement, Yahoo lists exactly what will be removed: Files, Polls, Links, Photos, Folders, Calendar, Database, Attachments, Conversations, Email Updates, Message Digest, and Message History.

There are no plans to archive content, so you'll have to manually save anything you want to keep.

Glenn Hauser logs October 14-15-16, 2019

** ANTARCTICA. 15476-, Oct 15 at 1410, JBA carrier from LRA36, so on the air this Tuesday; also reported later from Spain by Manuel Méndez at 1601 past 1835; and also Wed Oct 16 when I did not get a carrier, at *1307-1414* per MM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 15 at 1413, Trenton Military, ``time 1410 zulu``, ``no report received`` from everywhere; still distorted. So clock is also 3 minutes slow. This thing has been on autopilot for over a week; obviously no human is paying any attention to what is going into or outof it. Have they not received any complaints from genuine pilots needing to hear it?

Also Oct 16 at 1402, more NRRs, and 1403 ``Trenton Military, Out`` so maybe 1400 is a scheduled break time in its scheduling. BTW they never utter the listed CHR callsign (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 15 at 0609, RHC English is S9+20 but wasting all that power to be just barely modulated; 6165 is JBA; 6000 & 5040 are off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040.051, Oct 16 at 0209, this RHC is still off-frequency, suptorted and squealing, yet S9+10/20. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [and non]. 1090, Oct 16 at 0604 UT, colchón (mattress) ad in Spanish, but keeps going past 0609, an infomercial and mentions being a TV offer. Roughly south with KAAY nulled at first during its dead air. Anyhow, no sign of KEXS 10 kW MO daytimer which had been all-nightly for quite a while. The SS is most likely XEAU Monterrey NL, or maybe XEWL Nuevo Laredo, Tamps., but neither is supposed to be on now per sked in IRCA Mexican Log: XEAU until 0600, XEWL until 0200; even allowing for DST, Mex skeds are notoriously unreliable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNIDENTIFIED 1130

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17895, Oct 15 at 1437, Qur`an here but no signals on 17705, 17615+. However, Chris Krug, Tulsa, was hearing all three two days and an hour earlier:

``Hi Glenn, I copied Saudi Arabia on 17615, 17705 and 17895 (1340- 1352) on Oct 13, 17615 was weakest, followed by 17705 with 17895  being the best. Interesting that 17705 carried different programing than 17615 (the FT-1000mp Mk5 has 2 separate receivers making it handy to check such things). 73 Chris KC5IIE``

17895v, Oct 16 at 1404, Qur`an is JBA and today also stronger 17615+, always off-frequency+plus, but nothing on 17705. Seems sporadic operation/closing times on different frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 356 kHz, Oct 16 at 0555, ND beacon ODX, which is 25 watts from Ord, Nebraska. 293, FBY Fairbury NE also in at 0549 with 25 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Last scheduled SW airings of WORLD OF RADIO 2003: Wed Oct 16 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490v; UT Thu Oct 17 at 0100 on WRMI 7780 (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 15 at 1953, no signal from WBCQ-6, despite AW`s twit today that it would test again from 1930. However, retune 2000 now WLC is opening but only S7-S4, must be on 60 degree antenna. Retune at 2200 is off, but *2200:50 VG S9+30 another hour of Miles & Dave conversing as if they weren`t crazy. Must have just rotated antenna thisaway, not a time previewed to change it. By 2250 already playing interval vamp music of doomsday orchestral tune over and over, heavy on the `celli, straight thru with no break until 2300, another WLC hour in English, this one with preaching. 2357 vamp music again; 0001 UT Oct 16 Miles & Dave with a different hour. Not checked again until 0202 when 9330 is dead air of S9+10/S9 burning 500 kW for nothing; unknown when offturned or outfaded but inaudible by 0229.

Latest twit today Oct 16 says again will be testing from 1930; yesterday he said, ``Transmitter on and off. Zapping bugs?``. Where`s the Arabic? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1010, Oct 15 at 1330 UT, detailed ag report, cattle auxions, Fargo mentioned? 1337 switch to another market report by same speaker, 1338 ad for something in Sterling-Brush-Fort Morgan, so this is KSIR, licensed to Brush, address in Ft Morgan CO, U4 25000/280 watts. Now day since 1300 UT (Nov: 1345). Day and night patterns from NE CO are figure-8 E/WSW, not good for here to the SE. Some 20+ years ago, KSIR was a WORLD OF RADIO affiliate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 1150, Oct 16 at 1247 UT, Spanish looping slightly CCW from E/W; Ad with 623-area code, ``Radio [two syllables]``; fast SAH with KSAL? at right angle, romantic song. 623 is one of the *five* ACs in central Arizona, so this is KCKY Coolidge, in NRC AM Log as SS:REL, Radio Casa, U4 5/1 kW. Both day and night patterns are sort of figure-8 with the side notches toward me! This is just after sunrise here so obviously well before SR there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1490, Oct 15 at 1322 UT, weather, ``Fabulous KDMO Morning Show``, ``Red Sails in the Sunset``, i.e. Carthage MO in the SW corner, briefly dominating the jungle around sunrise with NOS format (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, Oct 15 at 1315 UT, NPR Morning Edition // but not synch with delayed for IBOC 91.7 KOSU. Has to be KUAZ Tucson, 50 kW ND daytimer. Oh2, official FCC October sunrise is not until 1330 (November: 1400). Anyhow, always great to hear a public radio station on AM, of which there are vanishingly few especially around here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Awake by 1215 UT October 16 presunrise 1239, I might as well do a Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier scan, on the DX-398 for DFing, and wow, are there lots of them. Those with no direxion are too weak or more likely both NW and WSW. If a beat is detectable, (2). 

774 and 747 are strong enough to detect some talk by W voice, but will not assume Japanese, since could be during NHK language lesson.

774-NW, 765(2), 756-NW, 747-NW, 738-NW, 729-NW, 711-NW, 702-NW (2), 693-NW, 675-NW, 666-NW, 657-NW>WSW (2), 621-NW, 612-NW, 603-NW, 594-NW, 585-WSW, 567(2), 558-NW.

Now from 1226, upward from 774: 792-NW, 828-NW, 837, 846, 864-NW, 873-NW, 882-NW, 891, 918-NW, 972-NW, 981-NW, 1017-WSW, 1035-WSW&NW, 1044-NW, 1053, 1098-W&NW, 1134-NW, 1143-NW, 1197-NW, 1206-NW, 1287-NW, 1296, 1331-NW, 1413-NW, 1422, 1476, 1503-WSW, 1548-WSW, 1566-NW, until 1241.

1206 was noticeably off-frequency-minus. MWoffsets suggests:
1205.96 CHN Yanbian RGD Korean News General (Yanji/Longjing) 2000-1600
2016-08-09`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Oct 16 at 0556 UT, Spanish past 0600, nulling KWKH favors SW, but now peaking this signal at SSW rather than SW, further pointing to the new XECHAP, Chapingo EdoMex; see report of Oct 14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6120-USB, Oct 15 at 0608, 2-way in Spanish INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15182-USB, Oct 15 at 1400, 2-way in Spanish INTRUDERS despite 15180-AM signal which is getting more QRM from 15182-U than vice versa, i.e. R. Liberty, Uzbek via Woofferton (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1713 UT Oct 16

Media & Tech - 16/10/2019

LRA 36 on air again today Wednesday, but signal disappeared abruptly at 1414

ANTARCTICA, 15476, LRA 36, Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel, Base Esperanza, *1307-1414*, 16-11, open with identification in Spanish and various languages, comments by females, non stop songs. At first extremely weak, barely audible due to very weak signal and QRM from Radio Free Asia on 15470 kHz, at 1400 Radio Free Asia closed and for moments clear signal. Strong fading. At about 1414 signal disappeared abruptly.

Vanuatu invests in boosting its shortwave radio service

In the age of social media and internet technology, shortwave may be seen as traditional technology — but it still plays an important role in reaching far-flung communities, with Vanuatu's public broadcaster now investing millions of dollars to boost its shortwave service.

The Vanuatu Broadcasting Television Corporation (VBTC) is investing AUD$12 million in upgrading its national radio service through its shortwave and and medium wave service.

VBTC chief executive officer, Francis Herman told the ABC that only 30 per cent of the country can access national radio but after the upgrade, this would increase to 100 per cent coverage across Vanuatu's 80-plus islands.

"Radio as you know is cost effective, people can pick it up on their phone, in the villages where television can not reach, radio is the companion for people," Mr Herman said.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation shutdown its shortwave service to the Pacific in 2017, in favour of a digital presence while China and New Zealand have increased their shortwave coverage.

Technology commentator Peter Marks said investing in shortwave is a great way to complement Vanuatu's national radio service.

"Shortwave comes from over the horizon it will continue to work even when local conditions are difficult like extreme weather that might knock out local FM and AM stations and internet," Mr Marks said.

Vanuatu is listed by the United Nations as one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world and regularly experiences, earthquakes, cyclones and floods.

Mr Herman said this makes having a national shortwave service even more important.

"We have general elections in March next year, we are about to head into the cyclone season beginning in November and so its important, it's crucial that the people of Vanuatu can get access to a reliable and credible broadcaster," Mr Herman said.

Along with its shortwave broadcasts, the VBTC is also looking to improve its television coverage over the next two years, with funding support from the Vanuatu government, New Zealand and China. (abc.net)

Glenn Hauser logs October 10-13-14-15, 2019

** CUBA. 5040.051, Oct 13 at 0028, RHC IS and Portuguese! undermodulated, with squeal, and splatter from super signal of 5050 WWRB which is fortunately on only two nights a week. Unusual for this or any RHC channel to be off-frequency; and supposed to be going from Creole to French at 0030. WRTH of a year ago showed Portuguese on 15730 at 0030-0100, but currently not later than 2330-2400 per EiBi and Aoki. Something`s always wrong at RHC. [Date correct: overlooked for previous report, reminded by this:]

5040.051, Oct 15 at 0123, RHC off-frequency again, remeasured exactly the same; correct language after 0100 Spanish, S9-S7, undermodulated with squeal. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Oct 15 at 0128, Radio Progreso is S9+10 but JBM vs CODAR swishes. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.1, Oct 14 at 1957 UT on caradio in western Enid, gospel rock, something new? Not usually a semi-local here adjacent to KLGB-LP 94.3. 2000 UT, multi-station ID for The House FM, starting with KJTH 89.7 Ponca City but a local signal into Enid. Full stations include call, location and frequency; translators only location and frequency --- and 94.1 is *never* mentioned for any of them.

WTFDA Database soon finds the nearest 94.1, not far WNW of Enid:
KTHM 94.1 WAYNOKA OK 9.8 9.8 122.0 122.0 36-34-55 98-52-12 VARIETY

This makes no connexion whatsoever to The House network or KJTH, but note the `TH` they try to include in all their callsigns.

Phones in 530 area code? I don`t think so: that`s the NE corner of CALIFORNIA, while Oklahoma around Enid is 580!

As above and here note the license expires in only 2.55 years; why?
http://licensing.fcc.gov/prod/cdbs/pubacc/Auth_Files/1795010.pdf

I really don`t think 94.1 has been on air since last November, rather quite recently, so much so that HQ has not got around to adding it to their ID spiel! I soon confirm on two radios that 94.1 is // 89.7 and synchronized. ``Variety`` format seems like a cop-out, hardly does it justice; like KJTH 89.7 it`s ``Christian CHR/Rock`` 

(and they were even playing imposing that today in Enid`s last remaining Chinese buffet (also pizza, tamales, sushi), Chen Garden in the almost-vacant Oakwood Mall --- but even so far inside the struxure alee from it, KOSU penetrated quite well into our G8 and headset, overriding the PA).

Of course they have a website:
https://www.thehousefm.com/

``Listen to The House FM on 89.7 OKC to Wichita • 88.5 OKC Metro • 100.1 Wichita • 89.1 Seminole• 105.9 Stillwater • 100.1 Edmond • 105.7 Bartlesville • 89.3 Altus • 89.9 Elk City / Clinton • 94.5 Pawhuska • 94.3 Shawnee • 93.9 Ada • 101.7 Lawton • 106.1 Sulphur • 94.1 Alva • 89.7 HD1 Northern Oklahoma``

There is 94.1, attributed to Alva, a slightly larger town not too far from Waynoka. RL coverage map shows the cross right in Waynoka; Alva barely within the ``local`` contour while Enid is slightly beyond the ``fringe`` contour (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, Oct 14 at 2233, Voice of Turkey the best heard in a long time, VG S9-S7 but some fades to S4, at ``Did You Know That`` either opening or closing of program as they play the same musical intros and outros for everyshow. Some hum, no RTTY QRM now. Perhaps Turkey decided they`d better get their propaganda machine in order to support Ottoman imperialism (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WTFK? O, he mentioned it yesterday, but not today. Nothing on 9330 when bandscanning circa 2230 UT Oct 14, nor 12120 which had since been registered.

Nor on 11730, as headstart on B-19, yet another new frequency never in use, per Ivo via Richard Lemke:

But 9330.00 is certainly on at next check 0120 Oct 15, S9+30 gospel huxter in English, quoting Daniel. At 0158 WLC vamp music but now declined to only S9-S7 with deep fades; unless antenna swivel away from us, even 500 kW cannot overcome dropping MUF. 0200 quick AW legal ID, and re-opening Worlds Last Chance Radio, apocalyptic advisory and into same two flat-earth guys pretending to speak reasonably that we first heard in the initial tests many months ago. So what are the real hours and azimuths of these transmissions? Maybe AW took my advice to go ahead with 9330 even if they can`t yet comeup on higher frequencies; oops (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, Oct 15 at 0132, WRNO is S9+20/30 but just barely modulated lady gospel huxter. It`s really incredible how many SW stations think JBM is sufficient! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Typo correxion: WWBA of course, not WBAA; fixed:

820, Oct 10 at 0052 UT, WBAP still has QRM with slow SAH, somewhat audible when nulled, WWBA singing ID just before 0100, as Largo FL station is *still* obviously on 50 kW day power instead of 1 kW night. If they have a legit problem switching to night power and pattern, they should just turn it off! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2003, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

UNIDENTIFIED. 9220-USB, Oct 14 at 0118, weak 2-way in Spanish, keyword ``cambio`` literally ``change``, meaning ``over`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 1580, Oct 14 at 1438 UT, KOKB Blackwell still off the air like yesterday afternoon, uncovering two weak signals making a fast SAH -- most likely next-closest KHGG AR with KGAF Gainesville TX, or maybe KFCS Colorado Springs, 10 kW ND daytimer two hours after SR here, and well after its 1315 UT sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Now I think it must be K202BY, the 88.3 Family Radio translator for Enid, which has had all kinds of problems, off the air recently. The hum sometimes can be heard as low as 87.7 up to 88.4 at least. This disrupts reception of 88.1 KWOU. Tnx a lot, Harold! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17895.021, Oct 14 at 1432, Qur`an at S9, typical inexact frequency, but MUF is looking up. How about the other two 16m Sa`udis, 17615v and 17705? NO signals from either, but all three are supposed to be on. 17895.021 is in fact the SSOB, beyond JBA carriers on 17770 Turkey and 17605 Austria --- and no signal from 17775 KVOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2003 monitoring: confirmed Sunday October 13 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, VP S8-S5.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 14 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, JBA and undermodulated? while // 9395 has NO signal; MUF drop!

Also confirmed UT Monday October 14 at 0243 the 0230 on WRMI 7780, VP but a bit better than an hour before.

Also confirmed UT Monday from 0302.5 on Area 51 webcast and S8-S9 at 0305 on WBCQ 5129.98. Also a carrier about 6161, doubt WBCQ.

Also confirmed UT Monday 0330 on WRMI webcast, while 9955 remains inaudible, as well as 9455, 9395 in MUF drop -- more of which is likely this B-season; needs more lower night frequencies. Next:

UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Oct 14 at 0555 UT, ``tropical`` music from SW/NE, as KWKH Shreveport is unusually weak and easily nulled. Spanish on this frequency unusual; 0557 UT timecheck for 12:57, so in UT-5 CDT zone same as here, but no ID copied as KWKH resurges by 0600 UT.

NRC AM Log has a few US SS on 1130: KSDO San Diego but wrong timezone and SS:REL; WYXE Gallatin TN right zone but wrong direxion and SS:REL daytimer; KTMR Converse (Houston) TX, SS:REL, wrong direxion, and 25 kW daytimer; WLBA Gainesville GA, not REL but 10 kW daytimer wrong direxion; closest Mexidirexion would be XEHN Nogales, Sonora but UT -7. IRCA Mexican Log has two other iffies in Guanajuato, Michoacán, leaving the most likely, altho really more SSW than SW from here, but in correct timezone: 

``1130 XECHAP Mex Chapingo 10000 5000 Radio Chapingo EDU/CAR CP (2017) for XEUACH-1610 to move here replacing XETOL which moved to FM. Station web site 8/19 said transmissions will start on 1130 kHz (daytime only [sic] 1300-0100) on 10/4/2019`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1503.2 & 1476.8 kHz, Oct 14 at 0615 UT, slightly wandering spurblobs, 13.2v kHz above and below out of some 1490 station, now here. I can tell it`s talk modulation but far too distorted to read. Now not so sure about previous DF of WSW/ENE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
07 - 13 October 2019

Solar activity was very low. The solar disk was spotless. No
Earth-directed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) were observed.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
moderate levels on 08-13 Oct and at high levels on 07 Oct. The
maximum flux of the period was 1,930 pfu observed at 07/1745 UTC.

Geomagnetic field activity ranged from quiet to active levels. The
period started off at nominal levels with solar wind speeds in the
350-405 km/s range. by 09 Oct, total field increased to 11 nT at
09/2135 UTC followed by an increase in solar wind speed to
approximately 490 km/s as a weak negative polarity coronal hole high
speed stream (CH HSS) moved into geoeffective positon. Solar wind
speed remained enhanced through late on 11 Oct. The geomagnetic
field responded with quiet to active conditions on 09-10 Oct and
quiet to unsettled levels on 11 Oct.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
14 October - 09 November 2019

Solar activity is expected to continue at very low levels.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to reach moderate levels on 16 and 24 Oct and again on
04-09 Nov. High levels are expected on 14-15 Oct and on 25 Oct-03
Nov due to recurrent CH HSS influence.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach unsettled levels on
14-15 Oct due to possible weak CH HSS effects. Unsettled to active
levels are expected on 21 Oct and 24-28 with G1 (Minor) geomagnetic
storm levels likely on 24-25 Oct due to recurrent CH HSS effects.

Encore - Classical Music - Sunday and Friday - Channel 292 and WBCQ

Encore - Classical Music on Shortwave - Broadcast on Sunday afternoon in Europe (repeated Friday evening) and USA
 
Encore - Classical Music this weekend is being broadcast as usual by Channel 292 (Europe) on 6070 kHz at 15:00 UTC Sunday 13th October. 
And by WBCQ on 7490 kHz at 00:00 - 01:00 UTC Monday 14th October
 
There is a repeat on 6070 kHz on Friday 18th October at 19:00 UTC.
 
This week's programme starts with some Schumann piano played by Vladimir Horowitz in a live recording from 1965. Next some Rameau harpsichord music and a motet sung by the Silo de Pro choir. Something left of field after that from 1956 - early John Cage 'Radio Music' and three Britten divertimenti composed when he was in his early twenties. To end the hour - a Schubert Lieder and some of Mendelssohn's violin concerto.
 
Both Channel 292 and WBCQ host live streams if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their sites with a google search.
 
Thank you for spreading the word about Encore - Classical Music on Shortwave. And thank you to everyone for letting us know how well the signal is received where you live.

Glenn Hauser logs October 12-13, 2019

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 12 at 2118, CHR **still** ``no report received`` from anywhere, and still somewhat distorted modulation; add another anomaly: ``Trenton Military``, now giving the ``time: 2115``, ``repeating aviation weather`` consisting of more no-reports-received, even from Trenton --- hey, they could have a courier hand-deliver it! Let`s hope Canadian Forces be epter in axual aviation, or godforbid, combat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 12 at 0610, RHC English, normally best frequency, now is S9+30 of dead air! 6165 is only S9 but also DA. 6000 and 6040 are off. Strikeout! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13570, Oct 12 at 1411, RHC-FM spur with F# tone is just far enough from 13565 not to impact q.v. USA K6FRC beacon; where else out of 13700-AM? 13635, 13765, 13832, 13897, 13961, 13503; closer ones broad, outer ones JBA at approx 66 kHz interval multiples. They were all late coming on, still nothing several minutes after 1300. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760 & 11850, Oct 12 at 2113, RHC Spanish is JBM on both, making it even harder to hear anything but a JBA carrier on spur 11840, and no threat at all to the jamming or RM on 11860. Something`s always wrong at RHC. At the sites, don`t they ever check the incoming programming feedline STL for anyaudio? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CUBA [non]. Oct 12 at 1257, Radio Martí plugging program `La Habana - Miami`, lunes a viernes 9 AM = 1300, soon 1400 UT, evidently rubbing in how great the gusanos have made Miami in contrast to decaying Havana; and in next hour add 13605 (which in B-19 will revert to 13820; why?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 13730, Oct 12 at *1459 carrier, 1500 music with drumming, 1501 French announcement, as the marine weather special continues for the Mini-Transat yacht racers; best I`ve heard this yet, but still unreadable. Supposed to be mixed with English. Richard Langley heard it better today via UTwente SDR despite proximity to Issoudun: ``First yachts expected to complete the first leg of the race tomorrow morning``; i.e. Tenerife, Gran Canaria. Second leg on to Caribbean is not until November? So they have to kill time in the Islas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 4890, Oct 12 at 1252, Korean VP vs building local noise level of S9+10, not on 4885; at 1308 a quick check of other EOH=VOH/VOP frequencies finds carriers or modulation, some noise-jammed, some not, on: 9105, 6600, 6350, 6250, 5995, 4450, i.e. some back on original frequencies, some not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Oct 13 at 0026, S9 of classic rock --- Ibet it`s Wolverine Radio. After ``True to Myself`` song, 0040 yes, IDWolverine Radio with echoechoecho--- and SSTV during which I hear some JBA talk under, another pirate? Or more likely fifth harmonic of my strongest local 1390 KCRC, which can sometimes be detected in absence of pirates. 0042 ID once, more music; 0047 ``White Sports Coat``, 0049 ID, 0054 `White Shade of Pale`, so the keyword must be white; 0058 ID, 0103 QRM de VFO sweeping, 0107 ID, 0112 clicking QRM, 0113 ID. Recheck at 0133 is already off. Many other logs here including good captures of the SSTV: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,59072.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SURINAME. 4990, Oct 12 at 0613, not even a JBA carrier from Radio Apintie, nor have I noticed one in quite some time in nightmiddle nor earlier. Suspect they are OFF, another SWBC country gone. The latest logs I can find were 2.5 months ago: 4990 2147-2157, 25/7. Música pop'; 24331 (Carlos Gonçalves, Portugal) 4990, Radio Apintie, Paramaribo, 0530-0540, 26-07, pop songs. 15321 (Manuel Méndez, Spain, WOR iog via DXLD) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565-CW, Oct 12 at 1410, HIFER beacon K6FRC is on a roll, audible again today. Whew, Cuban FM spur is just far enough away around 13570. This happens to be right at its local sunrise time, but of course refraxion patch halfway to here has been insolated for an hour or so. Patterson, 2010y population 20K, is still too insignificant to make it on gaisma.com`s long list of CA localities; closest bigger city is Modesto; now how about all those other HIFERs east or north of here which I never detect anymore? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17016.8-CW, Oct 12 at 2122, marker repeating loud & clear, or RST 599, starting: ``VVV VVV VVV DE KPH KPH KPH QSX ---``, but I`m in no position to QSX. Presumed regular weekend-only activity from the Marine Radio Historical Society in Point Reyes CA. Other listed frequencies which I did not remember: 12808.5 and 8642, Such markers really stand out these days with so few maritime CW stations still in service rather than historical legacies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2003 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports our first two airings via HLR; he seldom monitors the 1430:

I don`t get the computer on in time to check UTwente, but own SW gets a JBA carrier on 9490, so presumed RRI blasting into Europe unlike missing last week. Shortly Alan Gale reports from England:

``Hi Glenn, Very strange conditions on 9485 kHz today. HLR was a very good signal and no sign of splatter from 1300 to around 1432 UT, but then the signal went right down just after your segment started. I could tell you were there right up to the sign off at 1500, but the signal wasn't strong enough to read anything other than the opening part with the details of it being programme 2003. So it's back to the usually very strong IRRS broadcast on 7290 kHz [1816.5 UT] on Monday for me again then. Alan``

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1680, Oct 12 at 1235 and still at 1249 UT, dead air looping SE/NW, surely KRJO Monroe LA, the usual dominator. Initially atop some other weak modulator(s), likely remnant of WPRR MI, maybe KGED CA. The only other three 1680 Unitedstatesians never heard here, from WA, FL, NJ.

BTW a DXer in Bâton Rouge told me Oct 7 that his local pirate, Radio Retén Lo Que Tienes has reactivated but on 1690 instead of 1710; which will make it much tougher to DX. Maybe nulling WVON early evening before KDMT fade-in. See: https://www.radioretenloquetienes.com/radio-tv-live/  Pretty snazzy website. One of the slides in their show mentions 1690 AM, but I don`t see an FM frequency anywhere, ``Radio`` is 24/7 but not clear if that means 1690 and/or websteam audio/video (gh) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17850, Oct 12 at 2127, JBA carrier which I again suspect be the third harmonic of 5950 WRMI. For the next 5+ minutes I struggle to match traces of audio with 5950 on another receiver, and am almost certain that`s it: music going to Brother Scare talk. 17850 registers just S1 on the NRD-545 meter, better than the ambient noise level of S-0.5. If #5 transmitter were better modulated, that could make the difference on X3. 5950 is now TOMBS at 11-24 UT, 285 degrees, second most favorable azimuth for here at 315. Sporadic E responsible, as 15770 WRMI-9 is much stronger than usual, offside of its alleged 44 degree beam; meant to check 6m DXMap ASAP, but still at 2318 there`s one 31 MHz MUF blob over Biloxi, just about right for a skip from Okeechobee. Normally JBA 13845 & 15825 WWCR also getting a big boost from Es at 2120 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, a good idea as Jim Renfrew, NY has been reporting lots of stuff now and recently: this on the handheld DX-398 to be sure they DF approx. NE if not SW, but facing lots of splatter from those pesky North Americans on even frequencies:

612, 621, 693, 774, 783, 837, 855, 882, 936(2), 999, 1017, 1053, 1062,
1089, 1125, 1179, 1215, 1296(2), 1305, 1413, 1422, 1502, 1512. 

(I also have off-frequency-minus hets below 774 and 1548, but as previously divined, those two are harmonically related to each other and to 387-, so something local; never mind) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9557.0-USB, Oct 12 at 2109, 2-way in Spanish INTRUDERS, far enough from the Cuban radiowar on 9565. I think at yearend I may compile all these I have monitored, a lot, vs deafening lack of interest elsewhere (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17388.1-USB, Oct 12 at 2125, 2-way in Spanish, somewhat noisy background. Possibly legit ship contacts in marine band altho off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0225 UT October 13
