WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST UPDATE

** BRAZIL. 11855.77V, Saturday August 24 at 2215 tune-in, during the DX program on R. Aparecida, `Encontro DX`. Immediately mentions the station a few times, but made up of several segments with very different voices. 2217 it`s a report by a slow talker from the DX Clube do Brasil about the futuro das ondas curtas. There is slight pulse jamming bleed from Cuba on 11860 until I switch to LSB tuning. 2221, report from Paraíba by Amaral(?), fast talker, full schedule of RAE relays via Okeechobee very rapidly, but I heard one incorrect frequency, 9455. 2225 Daniel Camporini mentioned, Argentine DXer. By 2229 has drifted down to 11855.73 or so and show is not over: now a RAE guy is speaking Spanish with a porteño accent, about how ma y LRA stations there are around the country. 2233 mentions DX Clube sem Fronteiras, outro this show ``Encontro DX na Rádio Aparecida, nos sábados``, finally ends at 2235, then some whistling.
The 11855+ signal rated S6, fades to S3; I then compare it to RNA on 11780: S8-S5, so ZYE954 is providing a respectable signal considering the 250:1 kW power differential --- or is one a bit less, the other a bit more? I have to look this up in a previous WRTH since the 2019 had deleted all four Aparecida SW frequencies! Finally I check the other one propagating at 2238, 9630.4 as it too is always off-frequency, rating S4 vs local high noise level.
It`s great that a Brasilian station allows such a DX program to exist. As in DXLD 19-33, a certificate is being issued for reception reports, so I am copying this to them hoping they don`t mind some English:
``BRAZIL. "Encontro DX Radio Aparecida" --- A partir del próximo sábado 10 de agosto de 2019, el programa "Encontro DX Radio Aparecida", y el SWL Brasil DX Group, otorgará un certificado de escucha, a todos los oyentes en general que reporten la escucha del programa. Puede escucharlo por
6135, 9630, y 11855 kilociclos a las 2200 UT [de los SABADOS]

** CUBA. 5025, Aug 25 at 0621, S9+10/20 of dead air from Radio Rebelde, except for some hum. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1996 monitoring: confirmed Saturday August 24 at 2100:00 on WRMI 9955, S9/S9+10 but upcut JIP as I say ``---1996``; after IS & ID loop from at least 2058, as the automation continues to be misaligned, starting playout a few seconds before switching sources; independent asynchronous clox?
Also confirmed UT Sunday August 25 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG aimed thisaway, but still fadier than co-aimed 7570 with BS, which is closer to one-hop.
Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 25 at 0336 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Missouri, S9+30 including storm noise level making copy difficult, but during item on YHWH about 17 minutes into, so started circa 0319. Next:

** U S A. 9955, UT Sunday Aug 25 at 0035-0045, WRMI with beautiful gospel harmonies in Spanish, but 0045 abruptly cut to gospel huxter `La Verdad para el Mundo` with a bit of lo-fi harmony, introducing el evangelista Philip Gray [sp? sp?], who speaks very good but not quite native Spanish. What`s the harmony show? Sked shows 0115-0145 UT Sundays is `Buscando la Verdad`, while 0145-0200 is merely `La Verdad`. Perhaps they be related; show titles are often truncated to fit in the fields (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
