TDoA Help.

See the Kiwi forum for more information. If you are getting errors check
these common problems:

* Not zoomed-in far enough. The TDoA process will run out of memory or have
problems plotting the maps.

* Not all Kiwis used for sampling have good reception of target signal. Open
a connection to each Kiwi by double clicking on its marker to check the
reception or by clicking on the speaker icon in the sampling station list.

* Don't use Kiwis that are spaced too far apart (i.e. many thousands of km).

* Use minimum IQ-mode passband. Just enough to capture the signal. Use the
"p" and "P" keys to narrow/widen the passband.
For AM broadcast signals try a narrow passband that only passes the carrier.

Once you configure this extension, and click the "Submit" button,
information is sent to the kiwisdr.com server. The server then records 30
seconds of IQ data from the two to six sampling Kiwis specified. The
frequency and passband of this Kiwi will be used for all recording. So make
sure it is set correctly before proceeding. Always use the minimum necessary
passband and make sure it is symmetrical about the carrier. The current mode
(e.g. AM) is ignored as all recording is automatically done in IQ mode.
After sampling, the TDoA process will be run on the server. After it
finishes a result map will appear.

Additional maps may be viewed with the TDoA result menu. You can pan and
zoom the resulting maps and click submit again after making any changes.
Or use the rerun button to get new maps without resampling.
The checkboxes exclude stations during a rerun.

To begin zoom into the general area of interest on the Kiwi map (note the
"quick zoom" menu). Click on the desired blue Kiwi sampling stations. If
they are not responding or have had no recent GPS solutions an error message
will appear.

Important: the position and zooming of the Kiwi map determines the same for
the resulting TDoA maps. Double click on the blue markers (or speaker icon)
to open that Kiwi in a new tab to check if it is receiving the target signal
well. You can also manually edit the sampling station list (white fields).

You can click on the green map markers to set the frequency/passband of some
well-known reference stations. The known locations of these stations will be
shown in the result maps so you can see how well it agrees with the TDoA
solution. Practice with VLF/LF references stations as their ground-wave
signals usually give good results.

Start with only two sampling stations and check the quality of the solution
before adding more.

Of course you need three or more stations to generate a localized solution.

NRK to close LW 153 kHz but to upgrade Norway's last MW station

Norway's last LW station (Ingøy, 153 kHz) to close in October. The one remaining MW station (Longyearbyen 1485 kHz, Svalbard) proposed upgraded to 3 kW.

Full report in Norwegian:


http://www.radionytt.no/r19165.php?fbclid=IwAR3R4HOU9mQxXjUN3UINwNBpeMecVjsZ2lbZ1RbsuGA6I5WBz64aTGnAKo0

(Bjarne Mjelde on DXing.info Facebook Group, 18 Sept)

Google translation from Norwegian:
Although not many people are aware of this, NRK still has broadcasts on both long and medium wave. However, today NRK has a very limited service over radio on AM. Only the long-wave transmitter at Ingøy in Finnmark is still in operation, in addition to a medium-wave transmitter in Longyearbyen on Svalbard. Here NRK P1 is distributed with extended weather reports, among other things aimed at shipping.

NRK has now considered the need to continue broadcasting on AM, according to a letter the State channel has sent to the Ministry of Culture. NRK considers the utility of the broadcasts from Ingøy to be limited. The service is, according to NRK, in low use. In April 2018, stakeholders were given the opportunity to comment on the closing of this transmitter. No one has reported any objections to the termination of the service.

The coastal fishing fleet and other smaller vessels normally stay within the 50 kilometer limit and thus have the possibility of receiving DAB as well as weather over VHF. NRK's ​​DAB network has now been developed and covers 50 km from the coast, NRK writes.

Seagoing vessels normally have the possibility of receiving radio and weather via satellite. NRK is available with weather forecasts for both Thor 5 and Sirius 4. With this in mind, NRK will close the broadcasts on the long wave from Ingøy in October 2019

NRK has a MW transmitter on AM [1485 kHz] in Longyearbyen at 1000 Watts. Feedback from the Governor and the population shows that this consignment is still used, especially at leisure and trapping cabins in parts of Svalbard. In addition, additional reception technology is desirable for emergency preparedness.

Today's facility is approaching 50 years and must be replaced if it is to continue. NRK will therefore renew and upgrade the AM plant (from 1000watt to 3000watt) on Svalbard and continue it as Norway's last AM station, the letter from NRK to the Ministry of Culture states.

NRK has previously broadcast radio broadcasts at AM, including from Kløfta, Kvitsøy, Fredrikstad and Vigra. These were previously closed down due to low usage, as well as the introduction of alternative reception technologies that are more cost-effective and user-friendly. Public broadcasters such as the BBC, DR and SR have in recent years also reduced their offerings on AM. Swedish Radio has put down all its services over AM.

Media & Tech - 18/09/2019

Glenn Hauser logs September 16-17-18, 2019

** CHINA. 9155, Sept 17 at 1329, Chinese VP from CNR1 jammer; none audible in the 10s; 11460 & 11785 both JBA carriers at 1333; none in the 12s or 13s; but 13855 is S3 in Chinese at 1351, CRI in Chinese this hour only via Kashgar, East Turkistan, land of Uighur brainwashing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Comparing the two RHC 19mb frequencies, Sept 16 at 2026: 15370 in Spanish song, not // 15140 in other music vamping. At 2030, 15140 goes into Portuguese but chops off at 2032.6* during This Day in History; and 15370 continues, in choking Arabic. The foreign languages don`t dare announce what times and frequencies they are on, since, you never know when and where they will upshow. 15140 was supposed to stop at 2030 after French, altho last check Sept 13 it was in Portuguese before 2030. 

Another check Sept 17 at 2008: 15140 OK in proper French; 15370 in proper Portuguese but undermodulated with crackle on the modulation and carrier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Sept 16 at 2024 tuning across MWV hour in English, I hear two words: ``vomiting, diarrhea`` ---- and keep right on tuning! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, Sept 16 at 2026, VOA French with pronounced long/short path echo, off by 2030. Also detected Sept 17 at 2007.  Haven`t heard any like this in a long time, as propagation in general is so degraded against anything coming the long way around. Calculating the delay as I have no way of measuring it: Grimesland NC is only 1860 km from here short path, so would be 38215 km long path, using 40075 km as the equatorial circumference of Earth. At speed of light, SP takes only 0.006 second to get here, while LP takes .1275 second, so .1215 is the difference or about one eighth of a second. The azimuth toward Africa is 94 degrees, so the bulk of the 250 kW signal is radiating very close to opposite of here where we are almost due west. Normally we get only a fraxion off the back of the beam, while the LP peters out long before reaching here from the west. For this to happen of course, it also takes a frequency/band which will propagate both day and night. And the closer the source, the longer the LP echo delay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1999 monitoring: I missed it, but confirmed by Mark Coady, Selwyn, Ontario, ODXA: ``7780, USA, WRMI at 0102 with Glenn Hauser's “World of Radio” - Fair to Good at first but largely lost to deep fading by 0111 Sept 17 – The bands pretty well died off at this time with absolutely nothing from WRMI or any of the other North American broadcasters and there were only a few weak transmissions on the 80 meter ham band around 3755``.

Next we shall hear if WOR has really been canceled Wed at 2100 on WRMI 9955; last week it was replaced by `RFPI` in French, but the websked still shows WOR. Also:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 9455, Tue Sept 17 at 2125, S9/+10 of dead air, WRMI-8 must not have turned off after scheduled APS Radio music at 1900-2100 M-F. 9395 & 9955 are modulating OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sept 17 at 2121, praise music in Spanish at S9/+10, so KVOH is running overtime, supposed to close SW at 2100 Tue & Thu per own sked revised Sept. 1; http://voiceofhope.com/schedule/kvoh_program_grid.pdf
It`s the OSOB & SSOB, not even Kuwait on 17550, unless that`t the JBA carrier circa 17550.6 rather than something local (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1590, Sept 17 at 0632 UT I find a strong dominant signal with promo for Dave Ramsey on ``Smart Talk 1590, WCGO and 95-9 FM``, 0634 UT back to C2CAM. WCGO CoL is Evanston but tries to attach itself to Chicago as the name implies. It`s U2 10/2.5 kW, with night pattern aimed only NE! So for it to inboom here to the SW, it`s got to be on day pattern ND and maybe day power too. Recheck next night, Sept 18 at 0350 UT, plug a website with chicago in it, but not as dominant, losing to some Spanish from the south, see UNID.

NRC AM Log gives WCGO slogan ``The Talker`` instead and no FM. Per WTFDA FMDB, 95.9 is, you guessed it, a mere 250-watt translator, W240EH in Evanston, ``Chicago`s Smart Talk``. At least 1590 still gets top billing as heard. And would you believe there is *another* 95.9 translator licensed to Evanston, W240DE relaying WKTA-1330. It is however, only 80 watts, located 7 minutes, 1 second further north; 10 minutes, 29 seconds further west (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1590, Sept 18 at 0351 UT, as I just remonitored WCGO from the NE, Spanish music upfades, romantic, then tropical. I get a pretty sharp DF as due south/north, which per NRC AM Log points to KDAE Sinton TX (Corpus Christi), Radio Aleluya, U4 1000/500 with virtually no signal to the north. Other SS in TX is KMIC Houston, U2 5000/5000, Radio Libertad, at night Gulfward. Both listed as Spanish/Religious. Of course, fade down if there were any ToH ID, then back up while WCGO is in network news in English. One more possibility, XEVOZ in CDMX, which is somewhat west of south, but 20/10 kW with POP E/S format per IRCA Mexican Log. The only Mexican left on 1590. Fred Cantú`s final 2015y roster still had four (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Wikipedia: ``Island Lake is a small community in east central Manitoba, Canada. The community is on several islands in Island Lake, which is the 6th largest lake in the province. The community is located 297 kilometers (185 mi) east from Thompson, Manitoba and 610 kilometers northeast of Winnipeg`` near the Ontario border. That makes it 1965 km = 1221 miles from me.

** U S A. Larry Will explains further on the WOR iogroup Sept 16 about the Jason we heard on WBCQ:

``Jason Hill runs WBCQ 94.7 "KIXX-FM" (country format) and WXME 780 // W252DW 98.3. WXME has a talk format in the daytime and runs an album rock format at night. Jason's been working with WBCQ for over 20 years. At one point he was a board operator and did a show called "Squad 51" on WBCQ shortwave c. 2004 in the early days of the 5100/5105/5110/5130 service.

The Timtron show we ran on Saturday at 2300 on Area 51 was actually a rebroadcast from 26 January 2013 which, non-coincidentally, was Timtron at Monticello with Jason as a guest. Lw`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
09 - 15 September 2019

Solar activity was at very low levels. No spots were observed on the
visible disk. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed in available
coronagraph imagery.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was
moderate to high levels throughout the summary period due to
influence from multiple CH HSSs. A maximum flux of 8,450 pfu was
observed at 09/1745 UTC.

Geomagnetic field activity ranged from quiet to active levels. An
isolated period of active was observed on 09 Sep in response to a
positive polarity CH HSS increasing solar wind speeds to ~525 km/s.
Isolated unsettled conditions, associated with further enhancements
from multiple positive polarity CH HSSs, were observed on 12-15 Sep.
Quiet conditions were observed over the remainder of the summary
period.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
16 September - 12 October 2019

Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels over the outlook
period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to reach high levels on 16-19 Sep and 27 Sep - 12 Oct.
Moderate levels are expected from 20-26 Sep. All enhancements in
electron flux are due to elevated wind speeds from multiple,
recurrent, CH HSSs.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to range from quiet to G2
(Moderate) storm levels. G2 conditions are likely on 27-28 Sep; G1
(Minor) conditions are likely on 29 Sep; active conditions are
likely on 30 Sep and 02 Oct; unsettled conditions are likely on
16-18 Sep, 23 Sep, 26 Sep, 01 Oct, 03 Oct, 06 Oct, 10 Oct and 12
Oct. All enhancements in geomagnetic active are in response to the
anticipated influence of multiple, recurrent CH HSSs. The remainder
of the outlook period is expected to be mostly quiet under nominal
solar wind conditions.

Glenn Hauser logs September 14-15, 2019

** BONAIRE. 800, Sept 15 at 0144, without really trying in tune-across, Spanish mention of rtm.org and Bible talk in strange accent, i.e. PJB, TWR. Dominant on the E-W longwire, where`s KQCV OKC? It still dominates on the DX-398 except when nulled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 13640, Sept 14 at 2237, JBA talk of interest only because hardly anything else is audible on band --- listed as CRI Japanese bihour from Jinhua site, so probably aimed thisaway beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Re my CNR1 jammer log on unlisted 11170, Wolfgang Bueschel reminds that he found Sound of Hope nearby during his exhaustive survey: ``my trace action of 05 - 12 July, 73 wb: 11170.091 S=6 1414 UT 2150-1700 SOH Xi Wang Zhi Sheng Chi 1-7 0607 UT<<<<<<`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 9580, Sept 15 at 0120, CRI English via CUBA is splashing upon 9570, CRI English via ALBANIA, lessened by LSB tuning. Commies vs Commies vs Commies! Maybe not such a good idea to run them only 10 kHz apart, altho not synchronized with an extra satellite hop to reach Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13557, 13627, 13767, 13848 approx. centers, Sept 15 at 1333, barely detectable FM spurblobs with F# tone from RHC 13700-AM, as RHC fails to provide a useful FM service today; something`s always wrong at RHC. The one around 13627 is somewhat readable, and I notice that the F# tone is also JB audible on 13700-AM, but not on 13740-AM, at 1336 as `En Contacto` is underway. Hey Arnie, this would be a great topic for you to discuss/explain in English and/or Spanish, rather than boring QSLs-on-the-air, etc., of possible interest to only one listener. At 1426 recheck, traces of FM but no mod around 13771, 13629, as blobs shift. BTW, 13700 & FM constellation came on air late, still unthere at first check 1306 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Sept 15 at 0130, great Greek music from ERT, S9+10/20. But it will be off 24 hours later on UT Mondays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 11659.970, Sept 15 at 0124, VIRI IS, 0126 suptorted Spanish during trihour starting at 2350 from Sirjan. If Iran can`t keep its SW frequencies accurate, how can we expect them to enrich Uranium properly? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 640, Sept 15 at 1308 UT and still 1315 UT, dead air from KWPN Moore, but too much signal to let KFI thru this late; at least Okies may still hear stupid sportstalk in English now on sibling 930 WKY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1999 monitoring: confirmed Sat Sept 14 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S8-S9 after 2059 IS/ID loop, upcut joining WOR missing my first eight words, at ``1999---``.

Confirmed UT Sunday Sept 15 at 0328 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 15 minutes into so started circa 0313; VG S9+10 with some storm crashes from Iowa.

Also confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``GERMANY, World of Radio #1999 via Hamburger Lokalradio on Sept.15

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re our AAAWWW reports for Sept 14, John Carver explains: ``Glenn. Jason works for WBCQ. At present time he's working with the FM station, I believe. He's been associated with the station for years and pops up now and then on the SW. Tim usually refers to him as Jay of Son. I have no idea what his last name is.`` And at 2306 UT Sat Sept 14, John says ``TimTron is doing his Area 51 show live from the station tonight and Jason is sitting in with him again. John`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Sept 15 at 0100, WTWW-2 with rock music, not `Theatre Organ in the Ozarx` as claimed on far-outdated website; not checked this week whether at 2330 Sat when it has also been missing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Sept 15 at 1317 UT, my semi-local KSOK Arkansas City KS seems to be off; instead two weak signals: one from NE/SW with gospel huxter, not its musical format; 1319 another fades up from NW/SE with income-tax ad. 1329 first one into Lord`s Prayer and benedixion, outro as a Lutheran program, 1330 KSOK ID! and into music. So KSOK must be on power greatly reduced from 1 kW ND; axually I had already noticed it weak yesterday.

As for the perpendicular signal, could be much-wanted KPRV Poteau OK, or maybe WODT New Orleans, or KWHI Brenham TX. KBNO Denver might be more likely except it`s listed Spanish.

1280 also has hiss from adjacent IBOC: I suspect de 1270, KRXO Claremore OK, but NRC AM Log unshows it as I, rather KFLC 50 kW Benbrook (Metroplex) TX, which is still in Spanish but can`t be from defunct ESPN-D (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Sept 15 at 0117, VOV via WHRI in Vietnamese, not English as had been, while Viet was registered at 0130 when English has been running. Seems you can never depend on WHRI to play which language in which segment of the bihour relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Sept 15 circa 1250, JBA carrier again, from Bougainville or Indonesia? Ron Howard says he was not monitoring yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, Sept 15 at 0118, S9-S6 of open carrier, mystery continues altho I have not bothered to rereport it for some weeks. Possibly an RTTY station QRX for rare beepery? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

All the WOOB ones correlate with SOH/CNR1 jamming in Aoki/NDXC and EiBi, except unlisted 11170, new to both of them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CUBA. 15140, Sept 13 at 2013, RHC in Portuguese; and 15370 in French. Wires crossed? Supposed to be vice versa, per Aoki/NDXC and EiBi. RHC`s own website is still displaying B-18 schedule!
http://www.radiohc.cu/fr/interesantes/frecuencias which does not include either language on either or any frequency during this semihour! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 14 at 0525, RHC English is S9+20 of dead air; at least it is usually strongest now, while 6000 is JBM and 6165 JBA carrier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, Sept 14 at 1234, RHC fair here and better than //
fundamental 6000. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, Sept 14 at 1305, RHC fails to provide an F# FM service today, just this and 13740 on AM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 17660.018, Sept 14 at 1253, French S9+10 and somewhat undermodulated, some deep fades to S6;; off-frequency makes me think of Sa`udi like just-logged 15380.059 Qur`an, and SRI/SBA do have French on 17660 --- but not until 1355. 

At 1200-1300 it`s RFI via MADAGASCAR, which explains the good signal being T-E rather than T-A. Fluent W&M conversation about African affairs, chopped off abruptly at 1300*. Only a trace of Saudi on 17705, making RFI the SSOB and virtually the OSOB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 790-, Sept 14 at 1215, low audible het looping SW about the same as KFYO Lubbock ID, presumed XENT, La Paz BCS, as in MW Offsets:
790 789.9586 MEX XENT-AM Radio Fórmula (La Paz) 2018-11-01
790 789.9993 USA KFYO (Lubbock, TX) 2018-08-29
I.e. 40.7 Hz apart. No other station anywhere is listed that far below 790. Nominally 10000/750 watts but IRCA Mexican Log says ``night power seems much higher than 750``, and is staying on AM.

I also had a definite ID of XENT on 790-, April 11, 2018, after the frequency had been reported at 789.96 by John Wilkins, CO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 870, Sept 14 at 1208, XETAR in sign-on routine, starting late? Or just protracted in multilanguages, but several IDs heard (not XERTA as I mistyped in previous report about KFJZ, USA). In Spanish, mentions that they will be on air for 12 hours, ``iniciando doce horas de transmisión``, i.e. still a  daytimer which perhaps WWL/listeners appreciate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** OKLAHOMA. Level 2 tropo blob over central to eastern OK, Sept 14 at
1408+ UT provides a bunch of Bad DTV signals on RF: 8, 10, 11, 12, 21,
22, 26, 30, 35, 36, mostly correlating with Tulsa market, and some decodes:
20, KQCW-HD 19-1
28, Ion 44-1
31, OETA-DT 3-1 [seldom seen Eufaula KOET, with all 4 channels]
34, KMYT-TV 41-1
But none higher, not even 45, whence KOTV must have repacked by now.

Also, RF 16 KOCM-DT, Daystar Norman is Bad, failing to decode due to DX QRM, which now must be KWHB Tulsa, 26 kW repacked from 47; altho there are 7 other low-power Okies on 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 15380.059, Sept 14 at 1250, VP Qur`an, SRI/SBA Riyadh as scheduled at 06-09 & 12-13 per EiBi; more precisely as 0545-0857 & 1155-1357 per Aoki. One of few stations on band beyond Cuba, and much better than 15450 Turkey English toward Europe & North America which has been a total loss all summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1999 monitoring: confirmed first SWBC, Friday Sept 13 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S9-S6 vs Cuban pulse jamming already; but no upcut.

Confirmed at new time and frequencies, UT Saturday Sept 14 at 0130 on WRMI 5850 to the NW, S9+20/30 interrupting Bible quotation, ex-24 hours later; and also now on // 5010 to south, and still on 7780 to NE, both JBA here in HNL. At 0159 on 5850, my last few words overridden by music fill overlap!

0630-0700 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat, weak to fair``

Alan Gale, England reports: ``Hi Glenn, Nothing at all heard here on 9485 today. The Romanian station was spanning the full 10 kHz from 9485 to 9495, but I could just about see a carrier on 9485. A search of the usual webSDRs showed nothing but splatter, but this one in Mala, Sweden did reveal you briefly at around 1455 UT, so at least I can confirm that the broadcast was actually on there today: http://aspliden.mooo.com:8073/
Alan``

Confirmed via http://oh5ae.dyndns.org:8073/ SDR in Finland, not at 1445, but audible by 1452 Sat Sept 14 with huge splash from 9490 Romania. Not heard on UTwente SDR. 

Via OH5 I also check 7265 and 6190 in case HLR jumbled frequencies as Ivo suggested. At 1450, 7265 has something with music; 6190 Chinese, et al.? So neither of those would really be better for us at 1430.

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Sept 14 from 0000, WBCQ webcast with WTO opening of AAAWWW, but turns out to be TimTron subhosting, apparently on short notice as AW & AW are away at her family`s gathering in Ass-Houlton. Messes with cart machine trying to get it to eject or insert. He thinx they are ``quadricasting`` on 5 frequencies, but checking 6160v, finds it off the air; plays a tune while he goes out to try to fix it. Later says it may need a new driver tube. Also says 9330 is on but ``piss-weak``. Punxuated by belches here and there. 

By now some guy named Jason has joined him to co-host. Who`s he? Never heard his last name. He is also live-streaming video of this via his phone on FB, but never says where to find it! Tim wants to take phone calls to the usual 207-538-9180, but finds out it won`t work since that number is still set to forward to AW`s cellphone, and he doesn`t know how to change that. So Jason prompts TT to recall his adventures in radio in Maine, having known him for almost 20 years. Rest of show is about the various stations Tim has built and/or worked for until losing jobs. Jason sounds like a DJ, and they do talk about the domestic side of WBCQ, WXME, ``all-rock, AOR``, so maybe he works at that station.

Meanwhile by 0015 I have checked for the SW frequencies vs my hi local line noise level: 9330v JBA carrier, 7490.2v best; 6160v JBA carrier; 5130.3v second best; and 3265- as usual inaudible.

Here`s John Carver`s version: ``Show starts on time this evening but with TimTron as host. Says he was up there because of some problems with the superstation but never gives any details. He also stated that 6160 was down till he had a chance to fix it. He moved off mic and worked on a cart machine for a few minutes and then played some music. While the music was playing he ran out and restarted 6160. After the music finished Jason wandered into the studio and was co-host to Tim. Allan and Angela are off visiting with Angela's parents. No phone calls this evening as Tim can't remember the control codes to stop the phone from forwarding all calls to Allan's phone. Long talk between the two of them about how Tim got started working for radio stations in Maine before WBCQ existed. 6160 did not make it through the hour and was down again. Program was off the air at 0102. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 870, Sept 14 at 1158 UT, must be KFJZ Fort Worth again, gospel huxter in Spanish from the south giving phone 214-723-4520, i.e. Dallas area code. Then a song/hymn with a tropical beat frequently reuttering ``victoria`` and ``gloria``. By 1208, XETAR is on and in again from the SW, separable as KFJZ is fading (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 880, Sept 14 at 1203 UT, strong music east/west vs ~6 Hz SAH with KRVN from the north, not Arkansas, but soon ID in English as ``KHAC Tse Bonito``, and KWIM, and KTBA, ``exalting the name of Jesus across the nations``, i.e. AZ/NM reses. KHAC had been notable for suppressed LSB, carrier plus USB only, so I recheck it both on the DX-398 and R-75, finding that now it is DSB like almost all other ``AM`` stations, equally modulating on both sidebands! 

Now I am wondering why I am not simulhearing as good or better signal from 50/50 kW neighbor 660 KTNN? Because KHAC is obviously on 10 kW ND day power instead of 430 watts night, both non-direxional; despite official FCC Sept sunrise not until 1300 UT! (Oct: 1315 UT); while KTNN would still be direxional away from us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM. 12020.0, Sept 14 at 1235, carrier here, not 12019 --- can VOV finally have fixed this long-standing off-frequency? EiBi still shows 12019 including English at 1230, but no trace of a signal there, nor is anything else scheduled on 12019 or 12020. Aoki/NDXC already shows 12020, but has never been attentive to variants: almost everylisting ends in -0 or -5 whether true or not, except V of Tibet`s constantly changing 1-kHz steps around via Tajikistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Sept 14 at 1222, JBA carrier detectable, despite my high local line noise level registering S9+20 on this band, so must be good propagation. Ron Howard has been reporting NBC Bougainville, pre-independence referendum, on an extended schedule way past 1200*; but it could also be VOI via RRI Palangkaraya. Perhaps he will have noted which or both were on today. Also have a JBA carrier on 2850, no doubt the only 105-m band station, KCBS Korea North (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14325-USB, Sept 14 at 1241, checking Hurricane Watch Net for more to come; at first nothing, then a very weak K2? contacting an ON4 Belgium and DJ4CH in Germany; closest to weather discussion was remark that ``iron ore in the ground around here draws lightning``. Seems plausible, but true? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15253.50-USB, Sept 13 at 2012, S4, 2-way in Spanish, with crackle. Why am I the only one ever reporting such INTRUDERS into our SWBC bands? Does no one else care? Of course, as more and more broadcasters evacuate, such bands are more and more tempting to invade (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
