** CHINA. Firedrake Jan 19 at 1405: 6075 fair mixing with CNR1 jamming with ID as ``Chung-guo zhi sheng``; 6145 good with FD only, both against inaudible RTI; 9315 fair at 1410; 12045 fair at 1410, mixing with Chinese, probably more CNR1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11760, Jan 18 at 2134, RHC in Portuguese // 11880, the only frequency it`s supposed to be on with 11760 closing at 2130 after French. By 2144, 11760 has been turned off late by the slopperators at RadioCuba.
6000, Jan 19 at 0111, RHC English is very undermodulated, compared to OK // 6165.
13740, Jan 19 at 0116, no signal from RHC, so no QRM to 13745 Thailand in Thai to North America. Is RHC Spanish on the 13740 air all evening as scheduled, or not?
6140, Jan 19 at 0635, RHC English audible here very poorly, which worx out as a leapfrog of 6060 over 6100 another 40 kHz higher. First time heard here, but can`t be positive whether it`s transmitted or resulting from receiver overload.
13780, Jan 19 at 1422, RHC Spanish with distorted modulation and splattering above and below during `Amigos de Cuba`. Such deficient transmission should not gain them any friends (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965, Jan 19 at 0122, bigsig but only modulation is lo-pitched tone, from R. Cairo Arabic service; much stronger than 9720 in distorted talk, presumably Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA [non]. 17790, Jan 18 [not 19] at 1615, R. Africa Network via WRMI with three separate IDs in a row, each with a different address, boxes in Kenya, Uganda, and Zambia; spelling everything including names of countries for the woefully ignorant, yet literate. Usual lowered modulation level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 11670, Sat Jan 18 at 2137, AIR GOS with feature on the sarod, how it derives from an earlier Afghan instrument, with lots of fine music coming out of it; fair reception improves a bit as time goes on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Jan 19 at 0100, pirate music on USB; retune 0103 just in time to miss full ID, `` --- Radio, from the depths of the high desert``, but 0105 Morse code ID twice slowly as KMUD. Here`s a thread with many more reports of it:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, Jan 19 at 0057, R. Chaski carrier in the splash from 5990 CRI/Cuba. Pointless pulse jamming from Cuba continues past 0100, but Chaski cutoff abruptly at 0103:57* which is 5.5 seconds later than yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9495, Jan 19 at 0637, Brother Scare via WRMI and // much stronger 9840, but nothing audible on third scheduled 31m channel, 9955; hard to believe it`s even on the air at the moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN [non]. 7730, Jan 19 at 0350, RTI Spanish test relay via WRMI to evaluate response, whether it`s worth resuming relay via Okeechobee. Azimuth unknown, but publicized as for Mexico, Central America, Caribbean. Presumably to the west or WSW, fair signal here but nearly 100% readable, *much* weaker than WRMI BS on 7570. One more test at 03-04 UT Jan 20, and there are hints they may also test in English to North America later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN [non]. QSLs: Separate Xmas and NY design pdf QSLs from PCJ Radio International specials via WRMI 11880, Dec 22 & 29 at 1330-1430, received Jan 19 from v/s Victor Goonetilleke. After follow-up since I had sent my original report to his own e-mail address instead of email@example.com

** THAILAND. 13860, Jan 19 at 0116 tone of about 1 kHz, and off. Probably VOA Radio Ashna testing before 0130 broadcast via Udon Thani (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1704 monitoring: 7730, Sat Jan 18 at 2130 checking for WOR as carried by WRMI the past two Saturdays, but today instead it`s `Blues Radio International`, which is on the mainstream WRMI 9955 schedule at 0200-0230 UT Mondays. Usual poor signal here on this offbeam channel. Content of these hours is flexible.
Like other days, expected the other bonus hour of RMI programming at 00-01 on 9495 to repeat the 21-22 on 7730, but not today: WORLD OF RADIO is still running here at 0030 UT Sunday Jan 19, good but deep fades aimed southward, about a semi-minute later than on 5085 WTWW which started at 0029:31. WOR on 9495 is not truncated, 0059 to WYFR theme and ID before closing.
5830, UT Sunday Jan 19 from 0500:;56, WOR 1704 confirmed on WTWW-1, holding up with VG signal this week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Jan 18 at 2055, ZBC with enjoyable Ungujan music, 2100 crowd noise and pull plug at 2100:45*; was fair signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 17870, Sunday Jan 19 at 1601, no signal here unlike Saturday; also absent are 17860 VOA and 17850 Oromo Voice, silent Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
