** CHINA. 11640, Sunday June 17 at 1313, solo violin classical music, presumably Bach, on CNR1`s Sunday evening western cultural hour. Here to jam Taiwan, unheard. Easily recognizable, so I search for many //s, all! of them as jammers: 15110 under VOA Thailand, usual heavy mix, 15040 alone vs India, 13690 vs VOA Saipan, 11785 under VOA Philippines, 11540 vs RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, 9680 vs Taiwan, 9660 mixture with Taiwan. Clear 11640 and 15040 are best (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Slight correxion to the last time mentioned: 08 not 09 UT:

11760, June 16 at 1402, RHC is well modulated here, with plug for 13th Festival Internacional de Coros, 26-30 junio en La Habana; no, not a tribute to Arnie`s family, but choral performances with some nice classical music bits. 1403 opening `Cartas a la Redacción` which is not a mailbag: its announced times are Sat 10 am and 11 pm, Sunday 4 am always Cuban time = Sat 14, UT Sun 03 & 08, the latter when no SW transmitters should be on air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 11730, June 17 at 0556 check, NHK 0530 French relay is still modulating OK. Will report again only if we catch it re-buzzing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.5, June 17 at 1916 UT, KGVV Goltry with Jesus praise music but modulation cuts out for a split second about 23 times per minute. // 98..5, K253BC, Enid is not doing this. Both supposed to originate with ``My Praise FM``, 88.7 KLVV Ponca City, also audible here, but *not* //. With newish 14 kW from nearby Goltry, KGVV has Enid within its local coverage contour, making the translator in Enid unnecessary, but they are not about to give it up and possiblize slightly more diverse programming on the FM band (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1934 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria reports:

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

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday June 17 at 0500, WTWW-2 still on with music, ID; 0506.5 switch to network feed with dropouts, another minute of music prélude, 0507.5 opening `Southern Talk at the Midnight`, long intro to tonight`s subject: ghosts. Unlike last week, and earlier tonight, nothing now audible on 15809.9, WTWW-3 nor at 0555, so either off or has ceased to propagate with no sporadic E.

Host tends to mumble; sure thought he said ``at the``, but finally found the website as ``in the``, neither making very good sense:
which forwards to:

Dave Fluee (as really spelt) does not know the difference between CDT and CST. It starts at midnight ``CST`` or 10 pm ``PST``. Only on the sponsorship/sales page does it mention being two hours long. No physical or postal address can be found on website. Apparently has been going since at least February, but only recently added WTWW.

Motto is: ``From Science to Pseudoscience. And Conspiracies to Paranormal. SOUTHERN TALK IN THE MIDNIGHT --- Talk about: Ghosts, Hauntings, Conspiracies, Science, Area 51 and many many more topics too long to list. Conspiracy theory-themed Talk Program``

``From the great south east``, on WTWW 5085 (only) and apparently has only one other affiliate, in California, KCAA, on 1050, 102.3 and 106.5. Like, where? 1050, Loma Linda, 35 watts at night! But it webcasts. 102.3 is K272FQ in Riverside with 50 watts. 106.5 is K293CT, in Moreno Valley with 70 watts. LL is north of Riverside, MV is a suburb east.

Is there anything about this at ? --- of course not! But still displays long-outdated info as if really broadcasting on 9930 in the afternoons with Dave Ramsey M-F, Bob Heil Saturdays.

I have seen no other log reports of STITM, and I am certainly not promoting this wacky show, a waste of time, not my teacup.

15809.911, Sunday June 17 at 1748 check, WTWW-3 is back on but quite weak, much less than neighbor 15825 WWCR. Am pretty sure talk program is // 9475 SFAW as to be expected at this hour, somebody talking / preaching off-mike which does not help. 9475 is also unusually weak, only S9. But at 1758*, 15810- is off and gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Follow-up to previous report about `Rockphesy` program:

Alan Gale, England, had reported it May 21 at 0100-0130 Monday on 7780 just before WOR: ``I was curious to see what the 'Rockphesy' programme was about, mostly rock music, but with some Christian messages and quite a few adverts, not the usual 'Bible Basher' type programme, and quite listenable for a change.``

`Rockphesy` is still on the WRMI System C 9955 schedule for Sunday 9:30 pm EDT – that`s on this page: 
My previous search was on the original separate 9955 schedule at which apparently has not been updated

And it`s also still on the WRMI System D schedule for UT Monday 0130 on 7780 and 5850; adding up to a trimulcast. Have not heard it myself, but I suppose name almost rhyme with ``prophesy``, another clue, or is it ``prophecy``? But then should be spelt with a C (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re previous report about WINB in DRM on 15665-15670-15675:
   ``What *is* the spoken programming in DRM?``
Don't be surprised how it sounds: The bitrate is lower than on a standard cellphone call (Kai Ludwig, WOR iog via DXLD)

This clip is `Living the Bible`, with that Japo-Mississippian gospel huxtress, way down in a barrel (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
