We had another sudden power outage UT March 4 at 0017-0141; electric company was replacing a pole a block away without warning. So back to the porch for less noise, altho the outage only affects a few houses along our line, still on across the street and elsewhere within view.
** ARGENTINA. 15820.36-LSB, March 4 at 0041, bigsig from LTA with silly pelota game coverage; checked this after finding nothing on alternate 13363.55-LSB. Recheck at 0058, 15820+ is gone and no 13363+ either; game over?
15345.04, March 4 at 0044, R. Nacional also has VG signal on AM with discussion of violent crime, human rights in Buenos Aires province. It`s about one click on the DX-398 fine tuning above nominal, weaker at 0058 but still going unlike LTA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CLIPPERTON ISLAND. 21285-USB, March 4 at 0054 nabbed TX5K DX-pedition on its specified 15m frequency, after hearing the pileups on 21291-USB, its calling frequency. TX5K weak but enough to ID, working a JA at the moment but mostly Ws and Ks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5955, March 4 at 0112, DentroCuban Jamming Command is still attacking this frequency with pulsing where there is no sign of Radio República. Stronger than the same kind of jamming on 5890 where VOA is not on weekends (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 11635, March 4 at 0110, KBS World Radio is still here in Spanish via GUIANA FRENCH, and WHRI is still on much stronger 9605 with its own UT-Monday-only programming of gospel music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.64-AM, approx., The Crystal Ship, pirate relayed from somewhere, March 4 at 0113 with music; 0116 dogs barking? At this point I go back inside and fire up the FRG-7 on D-cells, for much better signal with the longwire, 10 over 9. 0120 song ``Jack, Do It Again``; 0125 segué to more music; 0130 IDs for Crystal Ship by kidvoice and others, ad (PSA?) for dating website ebestiality.com presumably imaginary, with animal SFX; 0132 Donner Pass barbecue recipe plug, unknown music; 0137 another ID and music. 0141 our AC comes back on and the noise level jumps immediately; 0149 I think it`s off but no, just weakening; does seem to go off by 0200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980, March 4 at 0038, mixture of at least two stations, one of which is in Chinese, the CNR1 jammer. 5990 CRI/Cuba splatter again runs a little over 0100, and CNR1 has faded, so no timesignal heard, but then 5980 clears up for R. Chaski, Spanish announcement I think addressing ``amable auditorio``. There is still general line noise level, but not splatter from further away on 49m. 0101 usual sounders; 0102 ``estás escuchando ---``, 0104 talk about Biblia, cut carrier at 0107:34* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4770-4780 approx., at 0033 March 4, huge TADIL-A bonker I had not noticed before, now totally blocking R. Tarma, 4775 and anything else around; weaker bonker is still ranging 4866-4872 or so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9898 approx., March 4 at 0037, some ute blob is cutting on and off the air. This bodes ill for the new frequency of WTWW-2, 9895, which has not yet been heard in the daytime, nor 5085 tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
