** BOLIVIA. 6155+, June 6 at 0048, no signal at all from R. Fides, unlike last night, altho 6135-, R. Santa Cruz is at least as strong with that awful Brazilian het, so assume Fides is gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 5999.6, June 5 at 0544, RNB is on, hetting 6000.0 RHC. But not at 0125 check June 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11815.04 approx., June 6 at 0057, poor signal in Brazuguese, so R. Brasil Central, Goiânia, has reactivated, slightly on the hi side; 4985, if on, totally blocked as usual by RTTY. 11815 also has splash from the 11825 WRMI BigSig (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11854.84 approx., June 6 at 0058, R. Aparecida on the lo side for a change, very poor in Brazuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. UNIDENTIFIED: Channel 2, June 5 at 1651 UT, a bit of Es reaches VHF TV after 6m map showing activity only from the northeast, where I am pointed: bug in lower right seems to have the word NEW in it, just a glimpse and gone.
Channel 2, June 5 at 1700 UT, another brief fade-in now with a bug in the upper left looking like the letter Z in a square; ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15340, June 5 at 1303 and 1343, RHC is missing for the third morning in a row, but still on 15370, which is certainly sufficient (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also BRAZIL 5999.6
** CUBA [and non]. 9490, June 6 at 0100, Cuban NA is fair over wall-of-noise jamming, just after WRMI-9 has closed 9495, but 0101 opening talk from R. República via FRANCE is buried in the jam. Could the DentroCubans have eased up jamming during the anthem shared with the gusanos? Naaaah. Looks like the Directorio is not going to move back to WRMI despite much higher signal levels into Cuba available from Okeechobee than Issoudun (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965.0, June 6 at 0102, R. Cairo is back on frequency tonight, with suppressed Arabic modulation, whine (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, slightly on the lo side, pirate with good signal, June 6 at 0103, ``All My Exes are in Texiz``, 0105 pause and next song yodeling about a muleskinner; some transmission breaks, or are they just modulation breaks? NO difference when it`s SSB. 0110 `Mountain Dew` song; 0116 another yodeling cowboy song about Texas, and finally rambling announcement: ``Hope the lyrix sound familiar --- This is W-R-R, Whisky Redneck Radio, transmitting in the name of the temple of the screaming electron. Can you hear me now? Ha, ha, ha! I`ll bet you a dollar that you can hear me now``, some reference to Sesame Street; ID again as W-R-R, says ``could have better audio but we like to have things LOUD!!!`` Whistling. ``Let`s go``, but some dead air. 0119 start a song, then cut to another one, gospel about Angel of Death, 0124 musing on dying (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, KOSU, June 5 at 2016 UT during NPR ATC, suddenly goes silent for about 3 minutes. Not the first time KOSU has had such problems since moving out of Stillwater, and this was during a report which referred to the government of Vietnam as ``tiny``! And I wanted to get who said that inanity for The Tiny Trap.
While we`re at it: another major network flub via KFOR-TV 27 OKC: on NBC Nightly News, June 5 circa 2245 UT, Brian Williams introduced a report about the Moncton shooter by explaining that New Brunswick is the Canadian province *north* of Maine! Yes, there is a sliver of NB around Edmundston which is directly north of Maine, but broadly speaking it`s eastward, certainly Moncton. I`ll bet on Canadian TV they don`t feel the need to explain that Maine is south (or west) of NB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 15355, June 6 at 0128, good signal with serious ME vocal music, so R. Sultanate of Oman has again failed to QSY at 0000 to 9500, where nothing is to be heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980+, June 6 at 0048, JBA carrier vs pulse jamming and more QubaRM from 5990 China relay splash; sharp cutoff perceived at 0113:21* which is 4 seconds later than last night`s anomaly, but 17 seconds later than three nights ago, which is more like it on the average (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7730, June 5 at 0540, Brother Scare is back on this WRMI frequency, only fair, much weaker than // 7570 beamed USward. Revised June 4 graphic schedule now shows 7730 with TOM at 22-06 on transmitter #1, 222 degrees (except RTI relay somehow involved with red Family Radio at 03-04). 7730 BS was formerly only at 22-02, IIRC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1724 monitoring: confirmed Thursday June 5 at 1230 after gh WRMI ID, on 9955; if not for local storm noise, would be sufficient signal tho beamed away. Also confirmed VG at 2100 Thursday June 5 on WTWW 9475;
AND on WBCQ 7490 webcast also at 2100 June 5, this time playing the new edition while the previous edition would have played 24 hours earlier.
Also confirmed on 5050 WWRB, UT Friday June 6 at 0328:22 after a pause, but overmodulated and distorted. Please turn it down, Dave. Sounds a little better, I find, with BFO on. Stream not working nor is the alternate one. Next:
Saturday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Saturday 2330 on WTWW 9930
UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI 9495 (maybe previous edition; not on 5015)
UT Sunday 0400 on WTWW 5830
UT Monday 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB, etc.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9495, UT Friday June 6, WRMI-9 remains active here with alternative RMI programming, i.e. `Frecuencia al Día` after 0000, and `Historias de Radio` after 0030, same episode I heard before about Radio Free Grenada (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085 & 5830, June 5 at 0545, both WTWW-2 and WTWW-1 are off. Maybe another problem with the leaky water cooling pump.
12105, June 6 at 0055, WTWW-3 is in Russian this hour, presumably about to go into English for final hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3215, June 5 at 0547, I notice that WWCR-1 is off, while 4840 and 5890 are on as usual; and neighbor WWRB 3185 also on and propagating. Quite unusual for 3215 to be absent, currently scheduled 01-09 UT but with expendable filler unpaid `Worldwide Country Radio` at 05-06 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490-, June 5 after 2300 UT, I still have the main WBCQ stream running after checking WORLD OF RADIO at 2100, and I am hearing classical music! Presumably also transmitted on 7490, instead of scheduled `World Jewish News`. I bet it`s the default filler from WHVW 950 in Hyde Park NY. Yes: At 2359, J. P. Ferraro, Allan Weiner`s old ``Pirate Joe`` pal, wraps up the Evening Concert, which is indeed on the 14+month old program schedule for 6-8 pm at http://www.whvw.net/5thpage/
5109.76 approx., UT Friday June 6 at 0059, WBCQ The Planet IS and ID loop, 0100 into another AWWW CUSB playback not on the schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7505.22 approx., June 6 at 0054, very poor carrier here, probably the WRNO exciter, such as a ham radio transmitter. Meant to remeasure after 0100 with full strength, but not done until 0300 when it`s about 7505.2, within margin of error (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6772.5-AM, June 6 at 0122, JBA carrier, presumably the spot tonight for the mysterious old-time-radio station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7500-USB, June 6 at 0052-0053, 2-way contact in non-Spanish language; vaguely reminds me of Romanian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 13870, June 5 at 0534-0536* humbuzz only, fair with flutter, seems like a broadcast carrier perhaps overrun, but nothing scheduled around here altho IBB and NHK use frequency elsewhen. Weaker than 13850 Cairo music which is not too distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
