** ANGUILLA [non]. 6090, March 10 at 0535, Caribbean Beacon is off! Maybe that`s why Pastor Melissa Scott has suddenly shown up on extended KVOH 9975 transmission, confirmed at 0541 check, except it`s Dead Gene Scott at the moment, explaining about the significance of definite articles in Greek. Anguilla day frequency 11775 is also absent at 1339, 1429, 1703 March 10 chex. Could she be closing down Anguilla? Or is it kaput? But outages keep happening and then coming back.
PMS after all is a hometown girl in Los Ángeles. Strangely, the KVOH schedule does not mention The University Network or DGS, but labels the 04-07 daily block as ``Faith Center, Glendale, California`` and giveaway linking to http://www.pastormelissascott.com/

** BRAZIL. 11815 & 11745, March 10 at 0545, crackling spurs from 11780.1 RNA/RNB; also a trace on the second-order 11710 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 11645-11650, March 10 at 1345, noisy spurblob of CNR1 audio matching that on 11640 jammer against RTI, which is apparently out of order. Another CNR1 jammer on 11655 against VOA is not synchronized, but the spurs fill up the intervening space (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. Further confirmations of DST shifts in RHC transmissions:
11880, March 9 at 2305, RHC English now, ex one hour earlier (not later!), and // much weaker 5040 now in too much daylight, which is one hour earlier than before. 11880 is for Africa, and it makes no difference to RHC that this timing puts it at 11 pm, midnight, 1 or 2 am in African timezones. In fact, 22-23 UT was already too late for most of Africa.
5040, March 10 at 0532 check, RHC in Spanish, not English, and // 6060 and 6100 are also Spanish, leaving English on 6000 and 6165 only. Supposedly after 05 during DST season, all five would be in English. Confused about the clock at RadioCuba? Or deliberate change? We won`t know until RHC gets around to updating their schedule at
which is still pretending it`s on winter time scheduling; and further monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 11930, March 10 at 1342 UT, very strange! RHC Spanish is here mixing with Radio Martí, instead of noise jamming. Can this be accidental? Main noise jamming probably emanates from same site as overt RHC. Makes SAH of about 6 Hz, roughly equal levels. RHC is // 11950 & 11760 but an echo apart from them, i.e. the two different sites. 11860 RHC is also still on with usual CCI during this hour from V. of Wilderness, clandestine via Philippines to Korea North. Maybe the regular noise jamming was unavailable for some reason, so had to emergency substitute RHC as jammer instead?? Or simply feed mixup. By 1428 recheck, 11930 jamming has ``normalized`` to noise pulsing instead of RHC which on 11760 is still blabbing about Los 5 Héroes, i.e. ex-cons (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT [non]. 21540, March 10 at 1430 check, another day with no R. Kuwait, just 21505 Sa`udi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 640, March 9 at 1746 UT, KWPN Moore, IBOC is off, allowing clear reception of 20 kW 660, KSKY The Metroplex (yes, when on, and it usually is in the daytime, the Okie IBOC even messes this up 20 kHz away,); and 660 is so clear that I can now even hear Omaha underneath it, i.e. 1 kW KCRO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, March 9 at 1750 UT, KETU Catoosa/Sperry/Tulsa, dead carrier is still detectable on caradio via daytime groundwave after at least a sesquimonth, altho seems weaker than before, nominally 10 kW now, but no comparison whatsoever to 50 kW ND 1170 KFAQ.
However, pattern shows null at 310 degrees (Enid is more like 280), and another at 70; major broad lobe centered at 190 degrees, and minor at 10.
This is because site is on the north side of Tulsa --- not that any of this matters as long as they fail to modulate (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1170, March 10 circa 1315 UT, KFAQ Tulsa local far-right talk show makes excuses for rampant racism at OU fraternities, implies the video was by an infiltraitor. At least its IBOC is off at the moment; usually on 24 hours, ruining KSL 1160 and other neighbors (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1360 & 1420, March 9 at 1751 UT check on caradio, weak hets still audible on KS and OK stations, i.e. matching spurs from local 1390 KCRC Enid. Pitch on 1360 is lower than on 1420, so one or more of the three stations are slightly off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1650, March 10 at 0551 UT, `Red Eye Radio` audible and a few words ahead of // 1640 KZLS, so this confirms KYHN Sallisaw is still on the air, but it`s no longer dominant vs tri-station CCI; QRP? Or is it now really 1 kW instead of previously 10 kW day power at night? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. KVOH: see ANGUILLA [non]
** U S A. 11870, March 10 at 0543, WEWN `Dolorosa Pasión` service with that humwhine imposed, only heard on this transmitter late at night (and I don`t see how it could be from QRM) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 720, March 9 at 1741 UT on caradio, WGN is still getting here on residual skywave less than an hour before local mean noon --- appropriately, M&W discussing the OU fraternity scandal; 1745 UT WGN ID for sure. Weak but steady, and between stoplites and powerline noise sources, quite listenable. Has faded out by 1752 UT, but back again during news at 1802 UT. 670 also has signs of WSCR, something CCI to KLTT Denver (and 850 KOA is also in over Spanish from Metroplex) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 790, March 9 at 1748 UT on caradio, ad for something in Burlington CO, times as Mountain, then ``K-Triple-X`` ID. This 5 kW ND Colby KS is normally difficult due to splash from 800 KQCV OKC, allegedly only 2.5 kW, but KXXX lucks out at the moment, also vs Lubbock 790. I still can`t get its next neighbor to the west, 1 kW KLOE 730 Goodland, due to huger splash from 740 KRMG Tulsa. KXXX is on Central time, KLOE on Mountain: most of the western tier of KS counties next to CO are on MT, except the NW and SW corners (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1140, March 10 at 1316 UT, ad with 757 area code, hyper hardsell station promo for WVEL AM 1140, plug ``Testimony Tuesday`` for callers. It`s 5 kW ND daytimer from Pekin (Peoria market) IL (shouldn`t that now be Beijin?). ``Rejoice`` (?) slogan apparently applies to soul music segments (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1100, March 9 at 1749 UT on caradio, two very weak stations, one talk, one music, making fast SAH. One has to be the nearest, KKLL Webb City (Joplin) MO, at edge of groundwave range, but it`s a long way to any of the others in CO, TX, MN/ND, at midday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
