** ALGERIA [non]. 9655, Sept 21 at 2156, romantic song in unknown language at S7; scheduled is TDA via FRANCE at 20-22 (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, Sept 21 at 2159, RHC in suptorted Spanish, much weaker than usual here, only S5, and plus/minus 10 parasites inaudiblized. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 7550, Sept 21 at 2152, S Asian song S5 in AM, so another day AIR GOS is not in DRM here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, Sept 22 at 0622, JBA carrier here presumed R. Kiribati. During my initial bandscan at 0606, did not hear it but a bunch of Europeans; see UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1948 monitoring: NOT confirmed Saturday Sept 22 from 1452 on 6190-CUSB Hamburger Lokalradio, the 1431 broadcast as monitored via UTwente SDR --- instead Chinese music, talk for at least rest of hour; did not notice any change in signal later, but some familiar CRI theme. Still going past 1530, conversation intonation sounding like German, but not vocabulary, until 1534 ``auf wiederhören``!? So there may have been some schedule change in China.

Alan Gale, England, reports at 1457: ``Hi Glenn, Well, I've been checking 6190 since around 1200 UT and not heard anything that sounds like them [HLR]. There is something on there at 1445, but it's very weak and it sounds like a woman's voice and music, and it's in and in AM only, so possibly PBS. Nothing at all on the Twente webSDR either, so I suspect that they're off the air for some reason. Alan``

Recently it was either WOR or no WOR, rather than anything audible from China altho PBS Xinjiang is scheduled in Mongolian long before and after our time; and in HFCC I see that NHK direct in Chinese is also on 6190 at 1430-1500, which I have also never heard via UTwente.

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite:

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Sept 22 at 0029, checked WBCQ webcast amid `Alan Weiner Worldwide` at opportune moment since he was talking with a caller about the hi-power project. The Continental 420-DM transmitter has not arrived yet, undergoing tests at the factory. Expected around November 1, and then will take another month to install. The rotatable antenna external work is completed; now under construxion are the ``internal`` dipole antennas within it. Some photos of Angela and this are now at

Caller wonders how he can hear WBCQ in DRM. Since the transmitter will be capable, Allan says they will experiment with it, but nothing definite. Also says it will be ``compatible`` so can listen in AM at same time! This is news to me as I have never heard or heard of DRM being compatible with AM, i.e. both modes on same frequency at same time. Maybe AW has it confused with hybrid IBOC? 

John H Carver, Jr, in mid-north Indiana, monitored the whole show and reports this week: 

``Listening again on 7490 this evening and show started right on time. Comments made during the opening theme suggested that the show would be political this evening with the phrase ``moon bat socialists`` being used. Allan and Angela in the studio this evening. Storms in the area and temps in the high forties in Northern Maine. Allan says summer is over. Allan opened with the statement that he is very disappointed with his generation and what they are doing in Washington. Then switched to a discussion about religion which was interrupted at 0006 with a phone call about Near Fest and looking for headphones. After that back to the discussion of religion. Allan states that there are two types of religion. One promotes peace and love and one promotes war. Implies that Muslims are Satanists.

Phone call from Freddie at 0017 with comments on pictures he's just seen of Angela. Says Allan has a beautiful wife. Talk of transmitters, WRMI and Family Radio. Allan insists that the private shortwave stations in this country are national assets. Says the transmitter for the superstation is now expected in November.

Phone call from Dave in Indiana at 0036 with signal report and talk about division in this country caused by congress. Urges that we vote out the moon bat Democrats this next election. Says he's not in love with the Republicans either but that they are better than the Democrats. Mentioned socialist communists more than once. Then into a mini rant about political and sexual correctness. Thinks the current supreme court nominee should be approved and the allegations about him ignored.

Phone call at 0050 from Ramsey. During this conversation Allan stated that he knew that he and the superstation were being investigated by the FBI. Said they were welcome to come to the station anytime they wanted and look around. Says now that the superstation won't be on the air till spring. March or May.

Reading of emails at 0056. Programming report from Robert stated that Dead Frog Radio would premier next week after AWWW with a two hour live show. A reception report from Mexico came in. Prayer at 0100. Show was off the air at 0102 followed by some fill music and station was off the air at 0105. A very subdued Angela this evening. John``

I didn`t quote John`s AWWW report last week in my own logs, but it`s in DXLD 18-38 imminently (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
