** CHINA [and non]. 17790, June 1 at 0607, Chinese with CCI, poor and with fast SAH, i.e. CNR1 jamming vs RFA Chinese via SAIPAN this hour only.
21690, June 1 at 0608, very poor in Chinese, not // 17790. This hour`s target is RFA Tibetan via UAE; ergo the Chinese on 21690 is CNR1 jamming, while the dominant signal on 17790 was really RFA.
19010, June 1 at 1348, CNR1 jammer with children`s choir, Sunday evening serious music show, good signal on the Sunday-only RFA Tibetan via Kuwait frequency at 11-12 & 13-14
16100, June 1 at 1350, CNR1 jammer, good with flutter; no 18s or 17s
15195, June 1 at 1352, FIREDRAKE jammer, fair and dominant; haven`t heard good ol` FD in quite a while; 15115 & 15265 are still with CNR1 jamming and CCI, hets
13850, June 1 at 1353, CNR1 jammer, good but with 13845 WWCR ACI; none in the 14s or 12s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15230, May 31 at 2211, RHC just barely modulated, peaks only audible, seems Portuguese as scheduled.
15370, May 31 at 2242, RHC ``ainsi ce termine le journal parlé de Radio Habane-Cuba`` the quaint French terminology for radio news as ``spoken newspaper``. Poor but better than 15230 Portuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT. 17550, May 31 at 2212, R. Kuwait, Arabic to C&W N America, good signal in drama mixed with some music; SSOB, better than 17850 Spain or 17860 Australia; after 2230 mostly music enjoyed past 2315 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LITENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. A new month, and Brother Scare must have showered some more cash upon Okeechobee, beefing up his hours on WRMI, suddenly on additional frequencies, as monitored early June 1:
11825, June 1 at 0613, VG signal on a frequency WRMI TOM`d before in the daytime. Immediately confirmed WRMI as source since it`s synchronized with 7570, and not synch with 3185 WWRB, 7365 WHRI, 5890 WWCR, nor 5085 WTWW. However, 11825 is slightly out of synch with 9955 WRMI, maybe different program feed routing. I keep bandscanning and find two more new WRMI/TOM frequencies with confirmed synchronization!
5015, June 1 at 0625, poor with BS, not especially strong and with music splash from 5025 Cuba. Jeff White had originally planned to activate WRMI on 60 meters via 5030, which would have been even worse, and we advised him against it, but did NOT suggest 5015. As of June 1, the HFCC Public schedule has not been updated since May 23, and still shows 5030 registered A-14 for ``YFR`` 24 hours in ``Spanish`` at 160 degrees, and nothing on 5015!
Ron Howard warns, ``Hi Glenn, Bad news for SIBC (Solomon Islands) on 5014.9 kHz. On June 1 Dave Valko, et al., were hearing WRMI, with Brother Stair programming, on 5015 about 0935 and 1000 UT, totally blocking SIBC. A test or a new schedule? What a terrible frequency for them to pick, especially as SIBC has been silent for a long time now on 9545, leaving 5014.9 as their only active SW frequency. Ron, Vacationing in San Francisco`` Bad, but not that bad: isn`t SIBC really on 5019.9?
5950, June 1 at 0629, yet another new frequency for BS via WRMI // synchro 5015 and 11825. 5950 is of course an ancient WYFR frequency. This one has also been registered for A-14 as 24 hours at 181 degrees,
in ``Spanish`` but not activated until now.
11825 is still going at 1347 and 1604 chex. However, I am no longer hearing WRMI BS on 9690 at 1357 or 1604, good news for INDIA if it`s really gone, unblocking the AIR GOS at 1330-1500. Still on 15770.
Nor was I hearing 15190 WRMI BS at 0613 when I discovered the bigsig on 11825; a JBA carrier however on 15190, which was beamed toward Equatorial Guinea, marginal here in the nightmiddle.
WRMI`s graphic frequency schedule is inaccessible, claiming I need to log in, but even then blocked by Google claiming I need ``permission`` to view it! So the full extent of TOM via WRMI is yet to be updated.
7365, June 1 at 0623, I happen to be checking BS on WHRI, when he is beating his chest that unlike the ``Pope of Rome or major Protestant preachers`` he is on the air 24 hours every single day on ``30 or 40 different transmitters, frequencies``. This however is an old clip, nothing new (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 9800, June 1 at 0043, upbeat ME? music, fair signal, at first suspecting R. Farda, but HFCC shows CRI Spanish via Kashgar. A bit surprised that even this 500 kW, 269 degree signal would be making it transpolarly into Briggs Auditorium at NOC, Enid on the G8 portable with whip only. Not that I had to DX instead of paying attention to the dance performance, but had just quick-checked WOR on WRMI 9495, also penetrating [BTW 9495 is no longer on the new WRMI schedule, maybe replaced by 11730?] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1723 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-2, 9930, just after 2330 UT Saturday May 31. Also confirmed on WTWW-1, 5830, just after 0400 UT Sunday June 1.
The WRMI-14 airing, UT Sunday June 1 at 0030 on 9495, also confirmed but as usual with last week`s WOR, 1722: I was checking on the G8 inside Briggs Auditorium, Northern Oklahoma College, Enid, during a dance performance. That venue is no Faraday cage. Now with half the people in the audience fiddling with their bright mobile devices during a performance, I feel less obvious tuning a hand-held radio, with a dim but adequate dial light, altho the whip does stick out.
Next WOR 1723: UT Monday 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5110v-CUSB. Tuesday 1100 & Wednesday 1315 on WRMI, 9955. Wednesday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB. Wednesday (& probably Thursday) 2100 on WBCQ, 7490 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, May 31 at 2214, WTWW-3 VG in Arabic now, dramatized Bible reading, presumably (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7385, Sat May 31 after 0500, no signal from WHRI, which Ivo Ivanov says has been registered effective May 26 for a new daily transmission at 0500-0530, 315 degrees to WNAm, external customer?
15670, also no signal Sat May 31 after 2200, but which Ivo says is supposed to be 2200-2230 M-F only, 260 degrees to Mexico, external customer? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WRMI: see SOUTH CAROLINA [non]
** U S A. 1530, June 1 at 0604 UT, not much music clearly in the mix, but 0605 UT canned ID by YL really cuts thru the QRM: ``Playing the best southern gospel music, KLBW 1530 The Light and KLBW1530.com`` as this New Boston TX 2.5 kW daytimer continues cheating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9989-USB, June 1 at 0617, Spanish 2-way (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
