Best wishes and 73 (Alan Roe, Teddington, May 28, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11934.88, May 28 at 0236, JBA music, presumed Rádio Evangelizar, Curitiba, as always off-frequency-minus. In mid-April, Carlos Gonçalves, Portugal had it on 11934.9. I had not noticed it lately, maybe not always on? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6754-USB, May 28 at 0242-0255, Trenton Military has crashed again, ``no report received`` repeating over and over from everywhere: Clearwater, Greenwood, Gander, Halifax, Calgary, Cold Lake, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Comox, Victoria, Vancouver, Abbotsford ---- Modulation is also a bit rough (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 11560, May 28 at 0233, S/SW Asian music at S1-S3, but stands out as the only signal between 11520 WEWN and 11670 RHC; nothing else from Asia audible on 25m, so kudos to AIR Bengaluru for breaking thru with its 500 kW at 325 degrees, per HFCC at 0200-0345 intended for CIRAF 40E, i.e. Afghanistan (and switching to 300 degrees for more until 0530), but merely ``Multilingual``. HFCC will not be more specific, so let us check the WRTH A18 updater: at 0215-0300 Pashto; later, Dari, Farsi and Arabic (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ISRAEL. 6607-CW, May 28 at 0243, VVV DE 4XZ 4XZ 4XZ swift marker over and over, i.e. Israeli navy, Haifa. Tnx for keeping this out of the 49m SWBC band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, May 28 at 0202, pirate music at S7 vs noise level, off at 0226 recheck. Never heard any announcements, and meanwhile distracted by other pirates during another active evening. These logs say it was Radio Free, Whatever, all the way from 2252 UT May 27 to 0214* May 28:,42944.15.html 

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, pirate music S7 at 0240, 0253 S9. Never heard any announcements; unsure whether same as previous 6950 log, RFW, but HFU logs say after 0229 it was Wild 100:,42956.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, May 28 at 0202, S9 pirate with old-time standup comedy routine, screaming, and roars of audience laughter. 0204 SSTV; 0206 back to comedy about Methodist baptism sprinkling vs immersion, hee hee. Off by 0226. These logs say it was Skippy Radio, with several SSTV images:,42951.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970-AM, May 28 at 0203, JBA carrier; 0227 trace of modulation, S4 vs high storm noise level. Also unID for all these:,42955.0.html

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. The stream of KUCO-FM, our only classical music station, has been unlistenable lately, still running but with poor audio. I`d rather hear it direct on 90.1, but reception there is seldom solid noise-free, let alone during stereo music. KUCO tells me their old worn-out computer handling the streaming is going to be replaced. I also lobby for them to put a translator on in Enid. 

Meanwhile, to hear one of my favorite programs this week, `The Score` of cinemusic, I had to listen to stream from its originating station KQAC in Oregon, Saturday May 26 at 2100 UT (and repeated Sunday same time)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 9370-, continued from previous report, Sunday May 27 at 1802 recheck in presumed Luganda talk, S9+10/20, R. Munansi via WWRB, usual bad modulation, 1920 still talking; not rechecked until 2157 when it`s off. Should be back Saturday as early as 1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1931 monitoring: Ivo Ivanóv, Bulgaria reports ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 kHz CUSB May 27
1031-1100 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sun, weak/fair signal
Wrong frequency announcement: ...Hamburger Lokalradio on 7265, instead of 9485``

Just when I have about given up on 9330v from WBCQ, check at 2345 UT Sunday May 27 finds WOR is back on! And like happened at least once before, May 10, mixing with Brother Scare whose audio has not been turned off! Total loss for everyone. This was also reported by Dave N4EF Grubbs. I thanked the boardops anyway for trying to run WOR.

I missed checking the 0130 UT Monday May 28 on WRMI 5850 & 7780; and the Sunday May 27 1900 on WRMI 9395. Did anyone hear those?

Confirmed UT Monday May 28 from 0301:30 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.8v, S9 vs noise level. It was slightly late because this time Larry inserted an off-topic clip of yours truly just before WOR, something amusing from long ago. Unfortunately, I was listening to WBCQ direct rather than webcast and could not fully recognize it.

Also confirmed the UT Monday May 28 0330 on WRMI 9955 when checked at 0356, good; unfortunately the ``RAE`` webcast of WRMI had quite degraded audio when checked first at 0350, and presumably also ruined the 0400 repeat of WOR on webcast only. Next:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1932?]
Tue 2130   WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1932?]

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 7490v, UT Monday May 28 at 0205, an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback at unsked time, says he has a sore throat and chest, first about tablets being like magic. Evidently WBCQ decided to stay on the air tonight during this hour, since they have racist `Herald of Truth` [sic] coming up at 0300, and presumably had Blalock the Blaster at 0100-0200, almost every night despite never appearing on the websked. It also shows nothing at 00-01 Monday after `Le Show` until 0000, so wonder if and what was on that hour, all unchecked (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, UT Monday May 28 at 0210, WRMI with `Wavescan`, tribute to the late Teo Veras of the DR, with a clip of him. Thus confirmed still airing now despite deletion from System D websked, ditto WOR 24 hours earlier at 0200 UT Sundays. 0200 Tue-Sat remains the only time now for Ukraine relay; on beam back toward Ukraine rather than us, usual weak sidewise 7780 signal here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15760, Sunday May 27 at 1920, silly carace still going on WHRI, evidently the commercial-heavy official broadcast from the IMS, announcers incredibly excited: are they pretending? Coverage probably started at 1500; 24 hours later, no signal on 15760, back to mothballs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Monday May 28 at 0549, WTWW-2 is off, unlike 24 hours earlier with new paranoid talkshow about space aliens, `Southern Talk at Midnight`, so maybe it`s UT Sundays only, and from 0500 UT? 

15815, May 28 at 1402 and 1507, no signal from WTWW, unlike 24 hours earlier when it must have been testing for the first time on any frequency above the 12 MHz band. If on, would be propagating like neighbor 15825 WWCR at S9+10 via sporadic E (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17749.8-USB, May 28 at 1405, very poor INTRUDERS 2-way in Spanish, think I heard a ``puta`` go by; no signal yet from 17775 KVOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
