** BRAZIL. 11747 & 11813, Dec 2 at 0622, extremely distorted spurs from 11780.1 RNA/RNB are still audible.
Other Brasilians on 11765v, SRDA with wailer Miranda, and 11855v Aparecida with Rosary are fair and clear at 0623 Dec 2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 11510, Dec 2 at 1440, CNR1 jammer, good signal. Can`t // it to 12045, however, maybe because target VOA TINIAN is dominant? Aoki reveals the reason for 11510: 11512*, 1430-1500 V. of Tibet via Tajikistan since Nov 12. I don`t even notice a het from it. No other CNR1 jammers found 12-18 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COLOMBIA. 5910-, Dec 2 at 0632, music, 0636 canned ID by YL as ``La Voz de tu Conciencia`` for the third night instead of Alcaraván Radio. What has become of the latter? Tonight I am not sure the other HJDH is active on 6010. Atención, Rafael Rodríguez, ¿qué pasa con esto?
This website linx to streaming; http://fuerzadepaz.com --- of only one station, which IDs as ``La Voz de tu Conciencia, del sistema Alcaraván Radio``, while promoting a novela at 4 pm, back to music; after 1700 UT into preaching. The other website which ought to lead to radio info but does not is http://colombiaparacristo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11950, Dec 2 at 1438, RHC is still on well past 1400, also 11760, 11860. This happens all the time, so is it my ears I can`t believe, or my eyes? See
affirming that 11950 is supposed to be at 1200-1400 only, for Buenos Aires. Typical lack of conformity between own published schedule and reality (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 21800, Dec 2 at 1446, still no signal from Brother Scare via BULGARIA. Ivo Ivanov reports as of Dec 2:
``Cancelled transmissions of Brother Stair via Secretbrod:
1400-1650 on 21800 SOF 050 kW / 306 deg to WeEu English
1800-2000 on 9400vSOF 050 kW / 306 deg to EaEu [sic] English`
That would be the old Soviet transmitter from 1957y. This relay had barely started and evidently same unit trying Global 24 on 9465, Nov 22 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1749 monitoring: confirmed Monday Dec 1 after 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395. Next:
Wednesday 0401 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Wednesday 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 72265-CUSB
Wednesday 1415 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 2200 on WBCQ 7489v
Wednesday 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395

** U S A. 9395, Tuesday Dec 2 at 1355, Global 24 via WRMI now relaying KBS World Radio with a feature on food from street vendors; 1400 over to NHK relay, news, then `Focus` about a new bullet train line coming next year reducing commute time from Tokyo to some prefecture from 4 to 2.5 hours, and thus expected to boost tourism;
1425 `Manual` about NHK website: vote for favorites at ``We Love Japanese Songs``. 1430 WRN ID, and back to KBSWR! And by 1454, same feature about street food as heard an hour ago. Strange scheduling. Same thing observed last week on Tue & Wed Nov 25 & 26. Schedule grid shows neither, except Thursdays only 13-14 for KBS. After 1500 today Dec 2 unlike yesterday Dec 1, `Democracy Now` is airing. Sufficient signal thruout.
As for what azimuth G24 is really using at any given time, we can`t be sure as they are experimenting, but Wolfgang Büschel got this reply from Jeff White, Dec. 1: ``Hi Wolfy. Yes, we were experimenting with 44 degrees for Global 24 yesterday [Nov 30, as Peter Hansen reported on his visit]. We have been trying different azimuths for them including 44, 355 and 315. We have also talked about maybe using 285 and others. So there is no firm schedule yet, but the 1200-2400 on 355 and 0000-1200 on 315 is what we've been using most of the time, subject to change. Jeff`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, Dec 2 at 0630, big open carrier/dead air, must mean WTWW-2 transmitter is coming to life again; however, 5830, WTWW-1 is off at this time. Next check at 1350, 5830 is on, and by 1436 it`s moved to 9475. Still no 9930 at 1705 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 970, Dec 2 at 0702 UT, WGTK ID for information, and promo for 94.7 FM and 900 AM, ``The Spirit`` --- must be sibling stations; NRC AM Log shows 900 is WFIA Louisville KY, religious, but no listing for 94.7 FM //. Nor is there any 94.7 in KY around Louisville; instead, WFIA-FM is licensed to New Albany IN across the Ohio. Nor does WTFDA FM Database mention that it`s also on 900 AM. Altho jointly promoted, I suppose that AM & FM could be separately programmed?
Anyhow, 970 WGTK itself is licensed to Louisville KY, né WAVE, 5/5 kW U4: major lobe at night goes broadly SSW, minor NNE, with notches to the NE and NW, so some signal our way to the WSW. FCC AM Query does not facilitate finding exact transmitter sites, but this
clearly shows 970 across the river in INDIANA too, like lots of ``Louisville`` stations. All of these are now owned by Salem, purveyor of various Christian-right formats. Soon followed by a KCFO Tulsa ID in passing on 970 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
