Glenn Hauser logs April 24-25-26-27 , 2015

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1020-, April 27 at 0526 UT, semi-local KOKP Perry is still off the air; must be serious. As Minnesotans have been noting, there is a low audible het on frequency, so somebody else is off-channel, and to the low side. They think it`s KMMQ in NE but not I, since LAH loops ENE/WSW from here. At 0527 UT I do get a uncopied Spanish ID which is not off-frequency, and from N/S-ish, and presumably that is KMMQ. 
Then by 0534 UT CCI on 1020 grows from something in English, ad in the 412 area code, i.e. KDKA Pgh PA, but which is surely not the off-freq either, and not much of a signal. 
Once again, since there are no Mexicans in the north or west, that rather leaves the much-crippled, QRP from 50 kW KCKN Roswell NM as prime suspect. With max signal from the het, I also note that it is pulsing regularly, at the rate of 136/minute. Someone closer to KCKN should be able to check out these signatures. And KOKP is still off April 27 at 1957 UT check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. After many months of NO SIGNAL on cable 15 from Suddenlink in Enid, since must-carry(?) KXOK-LD a block away has been off the RF31 air, *suddenly* April 26 at 2230 UT I notice an old Roy Rogers movie eventually involving an airplane! So KXOK is back? NO, checking the antenna feed, still no RF 31, but the relay on RF 32 is on, still with infomercials only, and no sound most of the time, as in my last report. So what`s this on C15? It`s still labeled KXOK! 
Finally I match it up to Cable 134, still labeled as long-gone ZUUS --- but it`s still KOKH RF 24, 25.2 being relayed, i.e. now with GRIT = old movie channel. Roy Rogers color is washed out, and I don`t think brown horses should have blue highlights, so presumably colorized. It`s also miserably low-res and stretched (can`t monkey with aspect on cable channels to my sets). Another old RR movie starts at 0000 UT April 27. 
I noticed this first on analog cable 15, which I still have plugged into one monitor, as well as DTV C15 and C134 --- one little problem --- there is no sound on either 15 with this input! Just on C134, and still the case 30 hours later recheck. Why bother? BTW, ignorant online TV listings from TVG and Zap2it have continued to show imaginary programming on KXOK, probably the Retro TV sked which it once carried (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. With semester/quarter ending, it`s time for a glut of recitals, music performances by university students and faculty. The University of Oklahoma School of Music had been carrying certain concerts by live-only streaming webcasts; this year the full concerts are on YouTube, not only live but later, unknown for how long. Last one listed is the President`s Concert of April 26, which I have yet to watchear. 
Sound is usually OK, not necessarily including announcements from the stage which are often off-mike, at least not on the mike going into the cameras! Here`s access, also to other events such as lectures:

and click on View All Concert Streams
I wonder if OSU does anything like that?
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13650-13690, April 27 at 2129, VOA YDD sign-on is splattering over this range from central 13670 Greenville; 2130 opening Bambara; also on // 15120 very strong but not splattering, which had been open carrier several minutes earlier. Both are 250 kW, 94 degrees from Greenville, ideal for solid coverage of central USA off the back. Any Okie-Bambaras? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1770 monitoring: Sunday April 26 at 2100, WRMI schedule shows WOR on 15770 and it has been for a couple weeks, but this time not, nor on 7570 which is sometimes duplicative. `End Times Coming` is // on both. But WOR 1770 confirmed Sunday April 26 at 2300 on WRMI 11580. And WOR 1770 confirmed on Area 51 webcast, and presumably WBCQ 5110-CUSB, UT Monday April 27 at 0301. Next:
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 
Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v 
Thu 0330 WRMI 9955 [or 1771 if ready in time]
Thu 1130 WRMI 9955 [or 1771; new time ex-1230!]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11825, Sunday April 26 at 2338, quick check of Global 24 via WRMI: jazz, so `From the Left`, while 5850 is yet again playing an old `Democracy Now` episode (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12050, April 27 at 1340, no signal from WEWN, but 11550 is on with Vatican relay in Spanish. After transmitter switcheroo:
13830, April 27 at 2130, no signal from WEWN Spanish but 12050 is on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1030, April 27 at 1958 UT on caradio, tnx to absence of 1020 KOKP Perry semi-local, clear shot from KBUF Holcomb (Garden City) KS, ID after promo for `Southwest Kansas Focus`, Sundays at 10:05 am [1505 UT]. It`s 2.5 kW ND day; 1.2 kW night dirxional southwest when I never hear it. With a call like that, when it first appeared I guessed it was in Buffalo OK, just across the border (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. [Re DXLD 15-15:] I appreciate your webcasts for certain programs such as the 11 am block on weekdays. [1705v UT]
Including Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival --- and the Schubert Quintet is a great piece, which I am enjoying hearing again this Monday, i.e. exactly the same episode as aired two weeks ago (missed listening last week) --- then I did a bit of research and found that it was not from last year`s season, but from the 40th which was 2012!
So how come you are playing and replaying this same old episode, instead of the current series as released by WFMT? We would really like to hear a new one each week! Regards, Glenn Hauser, Enid OK (April 27, to Yellowstone Public Radio, via DXLD)
This report dispatched at 0503 UT April 28
*********************************************************************

** BRAZIL. 11745 audible, and 11710 JB audible, April 26 at 0123 crackling spurs from RNA/RNB 11780.1v; 11815 unchecked? Unlogged, anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also IRAN [and non]**
CHINA. 11910, April 26 at 1305, CRI English, poor with flutter, and a different program-hour than second-adjacent 11900 with fair signal during `China Drive` show, the latter // but not synch with 9570 via Cuba. 11910 is Beijing site, 11900 Kunming. Even the ChiCom can`t seem to keep sorted out correctly the three or four different program-hours daily of CRI English. Maybe 11910 is an anomaly, as it`s filling in for what used to be the relay of Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [non?]. 19010, April 26 at 1330, JBA signal here, during the only hour RFA Tibetan via Kuwait is scheduled, i.e. Sundays, but too weak to tell if that or the CNR1 jammer (Glenn Hasuer, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COLOMBIA [and non]. 5910, April 26 at 0129, huge ``running water`` ute owns the frequency, but when it stops, music is very poorly audible, i.e. HJDH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, April 26 at 0101, RHC English is instead open carrier/dead air, while 6165 is modulatory. Then at 0103 I find that 6000 has dumped off the air. No het/carrier from 6001 tonight. 0129 recheck, 6000 is on and modulating too, but underish.
11670, April 26 at 0123, RHC is just barely modulated here, dead air on 11840, but OK on 11760. ¿Qué más hay de nuevo? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 6080, April 26 at 0328, music from VOA BOTSWANA, poor-fair signal and no pulse jamming now, plugging VOAnews.com or Facebook. However, at 0544 recheck now there is stray/spurious pulse jamming against nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 11935, April 26 at 0125, presumed R. Cairo, good level with flutter, but JBM. The traces of talk modulation are no match to 12070 with Qur`an at the moment. But 9315, undermodulated in Spanish, is // 11935. There is no ZY het on 11935, so RB2 still off. 9965, the Arabic frequency, is not // any of them.
9315, April 26 at 0327 toward the end of the `English` sesquihour, fair signal, but JBM with only a few spikes detectable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** GREECE. 9420, April 26 at 0111, ERA is on! Increasingly rarely; Greek talk and music, VG signal here and audible on much weaker // 15630 which may also be undermodulated. Still no show on 9935: I suppose Avlis` third transmitter is totally dead after acting up a lot when they tried to employ it. Recheck 0542 April 26, 9420 still on but weaker, well into the dayside (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN [and non]. 13650, April 26 at 0326, IRIB music good with flutter, as the ``Voice of Justice`` English hour to North America is underway; 0331 YL news, 0333 about an Iranian trade mission to Oman. No QRM here but the other frequency, 11780, is a total loss, nothing but a low audible het on the low side to huge 11780.1v RNB/RNA BRAZIL at 0334 check. Wolfgang Büschel measured that on 11780.107 on April 20. VIRI is not known ever to make any mid-season adjustments, which would amount to admitting their original incompetence in frequency management: instead, waste 500 kWh every night for the duration. They`ve stupidly collided with Brasil for two or three seasons now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 11680, April 26 at 0322, VG signal with funny song in Japanese. Yes, it`s NHK, here via Nauen, GERMANY, 03-05, 250 kW, 140 degrees to CIRAF 38-40, but plenty here off the back, and no doubt // 5910 France if I had checked. Would that we could hear any English broadcast from Tokyo this well (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11510, April 26 at 0323, very good with Kurdish instrumental music. Nice to hear Denge Kurdistane this well, as no longer possible in the 13+ UT period: that`s because from that hour, the site is inferior Bulgaria. Aoki shows the site setup currently for Radyoya Denge Kurdistane; is this all still correct? --- 
03-07 MDA = PRIDNESTROVYE
07-11 ARM = Armenia
11-13 MDA (but with an antenna azimuth change at 12, why?)
13-17 BUL
17-19 FRANCE
Yet, the latest HFCC shows nothing but Moldova for the entire span! As alleged by BRB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7375, April 26 at 0120, The Mighty KBC via Nauen, Germany, is still VG tonight, as Uncle Eric says Kraig Krist is standing by with a Forgotten Song (is that still circa 0145-0150 now that The Giant Jukebox has expanded to three hours?). But now, Peter Jones (James?) who sounds German, gets barely a minute to go over some ham DX news headlines. Circa 0130, Kim Andrew Elliott introduces some Radiogram beeps allegedly publicizing the KBC QSY to 9925 from next week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, April 26 at 0104, poor signal with pirate music; 0112 announcement mentions hfunderground and how the ads Google gives him are for Asian single women, rather than radio equipment. 0115 acknowledges contact from Bill Hassig in Chicago (a very active pirate DXer); 0116 finally IDs just before going back to music as ``Radio Free, What-ever``. Now signal is a little better (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1020, April 26 at 1339 UT, my semi-local KOKP Perry is off! Sibling station 1580 KOKB Blackwell is still on, so make that Double-Play instead of Triple-Play. In KOKP absence, I detect a JBA carrier on-frequency, likely remnant of KMMQ Nebraska. These stations are normally almost zero-beat, and I can hear the 50 kW KMMQ Spanish around SRS. Both were suspected as source of way off-frequency het heard by others starting with Todd Skaine, MN, previous night April 25 circa 1100 UT. Maybe that`s why KOKP is off now? Still off at 1730 UT April 26 recheck. 400/250 watts. Hope it`s still off tonight so can hear something more exotic like KDKA or ZP14 or some of the 52 Radio Illimani 1020s in Bolivia, hi2.
Brian Rachford, Prescott, AZ posted at 1105 UT April 25 to IRCA: ``I've got it here, although the hum is quite fade-y. It loops W-E, so maybe KMMQ? Frequency analysis on a brief recording has a wonking spike at 107 Hz. I have Spanish speaking over Spanish music so probably KTNQ [Los Ángeles] over KMMQ, which is common here. The hum decreased when the SS music became dominant for a bit. Had a "Univision" ident near TOH so the SS talk is KTNQ, and couldn't make out an ident for other station, but format consistent with KMMQ``
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1500, April 26 at 0135 UT, ad for a product from Cardinals.com so must be a St. Louis team baseball affiliate. Per
http://mlb.mlb.com/stl/schedule/tv_radio_affiliates.jsp
the only one on 1500 is KPGM Pawhuska (Bartlesville market) OK. The trouble is, it`s a 500-watt daytimer, illegal after 0100* UT in April (May: 0130*). However, sibling fulltime station 1400 KWON + FM is also on the roster. There are Cards affils in nine states, NOT including Kansas which the Royals must have sewn up. There are several more in OK, but only in the north, east, and central part of the state (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** PALAU. 9930, Sunday April 26 at 1309, T8WH with gospel huxtress in English, and not on 9965. Examining Aoki, in the 13-14 UT period, 9965 Angel 5 is daily except Sundays, and 9930 is Angel 3, Sat & Sun only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, April 26 at 0105, JBA carrier from R. Chaski until cutoff at 0109:30.5* which is 5.5 seconds later than last night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOMALILAND. 7120, April 26 at 0330-0336+, presumed R. Hargeisa attains no more than a JBA carrier. Constant AM carrier unlikely to be a ham (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, April 26 at 0114, SLBC carrier is on, poor; music starts 0114:46.5, and mistimesignal ends at 0115:19.5, right on mistime (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 9515, UT Sunday April 26 at 0322, VOT is starting `Letterbox Programme` with bouncy swing theme, and runs until 0334 with same theme and duplicate announcement serving as both intro and outro. In between, informal acknowledgments of reports from Christopher J. Campbell in Columbus OH, who has been listening since 1996y; someone from Hiroshima, among others, Glenn Lockley (spsp?), someone in Finland. Tnx to reminder from Alan Roe, who had heard mailbag circa 2220 25 April on previous broadcast, 9830. Was not on last Saturday/UT Sunday, so this confirms L`box still exists as fortnightly, tho its former alternator, `DX Corner` is long gone. Good luck finding any mention of L`box on VOT website, let alone any weekend audio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1770 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday April 26 at 0316 on WA0RCR, Wentzville MO. Now on second item about Australia, so maybe started a minute or two before 0315v. Steady signal, and audibility depends on evading local noise sources. Next:
Sun 2100 WRMI 15770 
Sun 2300 WRMI 11580
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5110v Area 51 
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 
Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v 
Thu 0330 WRMI 9955 [or 1771 if ready in time]
Thu 1130 WRMI 9955 [or 1771 if ready in time; ex-1230]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11825, Saturday April 25 at 2308, rock music, so Global 24 via WRMI is still on with `Rock Pile`; and much weaker 5850 is also on at 2308 with `Democracy Now`, no doubt old shows. Did not check during the first hour 22-23 UT.
11825 at 0047 check UT Sunday April 26 in `Blues Radio International`. At 0101 presumably FSN with Olds, i.e. about home of German suicidal/mass murdering pilot raided in Düsseldorf, gas explosion destroys buildings in East Village, NYC; Yemen president arrives in Saudi Arabia for asylum. That puts it from MARCH 26, now a month old!! 0105 Bonito Radio Jet ad, available from Universal and other vendors of high-end radio products. (But what is it? Sounded like Benito, but universal-radio.com lists lots of Bonito software, nothing named jet hit on searching.)
0105 opening `Travel with Rick Steves` and it`s the same old program too, ``leading up to Easter``, and policy changes easing American travel restrixions to Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11920, April 26 at 0124, Greek music, must be filler on WRMI instead of scheduled Fámily Radio in Spanish this hour. No, not // 9420! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, April 26 at 0118, WTWW-2 has been turned on, so Ted can ramble on a `QSO` show. I see that registration for this has been changed to start as early as 0000, so maybe will avoid 9925 KBC which moves there next Saturday night from 7375, by WTWW not using 9930 after 0000, if it is ever on at all again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** U S A. 1480, April 26 at 0534 UT, predicted low 38 from `The Big Talker, KQAM`. What??! It can`t be that cold this time of year. In fact, NWS records for Wichita shows the low this morning was 50. Therefore, KQAM is not to be trusted for weather info, probably automatically replaying long-outdated forecast. But what can you expect from a station dedicated to propagating far-right hateful wackos like Michael Savage and Laura Ingraham? No less a public disservice (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 17600, April 26 at 1351, VOA Somali is just barely modulated, suppressed, with occasional spikes, on fair-good signal. Wiggle that patchcord! Isn`t anyone at SMG paying attention to the output, or the input? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9565, April 26 at 1314, fair signal with brief tone test, otherwise open carrier, 1316 another TT. Nothing at all scheduled here around this hour. Could be Greenville checking system long before R. Martí from *2000, but not very strong; or VOA Thailand scheduled for Tibetan from *1600. No off-time Cuban jamming audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1832 UT April 26
***********************************************************************

** CHINA [and non]. 11825, April 25 at 1256, VG signal from CNR1 jammer, atop not only its intended victim, VOA Chinese via Philippines until 1300 but also Brother Scare via WRMI, another rôle reversal, the latter now scheduled 10-22, altho registered as available 24 hours.

11840, April 25 at 1256, CNR1 jammer // 11825, but not as strong. Victim here is AIR Chinese until 1315.
14920, April 25 at 1329, CNR1 jammer with VG signal, yet none in the OOB 15s, 16s or 17s.
13690, April 25 at 1331, CNR1 jammer, a couple seconds ahead of 14920, and with CCI from victim. Nothing shown in Aoki of April 24 to account for this, nothing anywhen on 13690, but HFCC shows an IBB Chinese transmission started April 13 at 13-14 on 13690, via Saipan. And EiBi already has both VOA and the jammer as of April 18. No CNR1s in the 12s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6100, April 25 at 0540, RHC English is instead open carrier/dead air here, while nominal on the remainder of The Cuban Five: 6165, 6060, 6000, 5040.
6000 still has a het from weak carrier on 6001, April 25 at 0541, but at least the 6000 carrier is no longer dropping off like 3+ hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT [and non]. 13850, April 25 at 0534, R. Cairo is suptorted as usual in Arabic to N America, by now having landed on correct frequency instead of transposed 13580 as noted earlier at 0218. In a rôle-reversal, 13850 has a bit of splatter from stronger 13840 NHK French via Madagascar; but it matters not, since 13850 is totally unreadable and useless anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, Saturday April 25 at 1344, KBS World Radio again with good signal to North America now that we`re past equinox and on the way to summer solstice, during mailbag segment of `Listeners Lounge`; admitting they having been getting reports of bad reception on 15575, but now it`s getting better, as evidenced by a recording that Benjamin in Cookeville TN sent them; YL & YL discuss whether it merits an O of 3, or 4. This does NOT mean KBS will ever catch on and go to a lower band in the B-seasons! At 1355, `Indian DX Report` from postal code 785001, not really DX, but partial schedules to S Asia for AIR, AWR, NHK. Thanks to good elocution I can mostly understand his Indian accent. Maybe Kevin in NM will be on next week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, April 25 at 0536, RNZ is starting a special about the centenary of Gallipoli which is to last 75 minutes until another special live event about it. Usual VG signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non non and non]. 21610, April 25 at 1328, Brother Scare on only poor signal from WHRI, and QRMed by OTH radar pulses, roughly 21608-21633, Cyprus? WHRI registers 21610 at 13-14, then 21600 from 14 onwards, why? Because Saudi Arabia is imaginary on 21600 until 1400: I`ve never heard it for years (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [and non]. 13800, April 25 at 0533, tone jamming, or rather het from carrier on hi side, marring R. Dabanga via VATICAN, but its good signal is still completely readable, the tone a mere annoyance, but how is it in Sudan? How many notch filters are on Sudanese SW radios? Is the jammer really inside Sudan? Skip distances on higher bands mean an external location would be more effective, but maybe Omdurman is far enough away from Darfur, roughly one megameter; more so on // 11650, which at 0537 has only a fair signal here but still atop its own tone jammer. HFCC registrations show that the entire 0430-0600 PNW (meaning Dabanga) transmission on 11650 is via Vatican, while 13800 switches from Madagascar to Vatican at 0530; why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 15595, April 25 at 0529, VR bells, good signal, as we are now getting into summer-mode with MUFs from Europe holding up overnight. 0530 Latin Mass with multilingual opening announcements in German, something Slavic, Polish, Hungarian, 0532 choir. This is much better than // 7250, and much2 better than useless 6070 under CFRX. 15595 is 250 kW, 107 degrees to Mideast, so directly off the back would be 287 degrees. I would not be surprised if it`s really aimed toward us, and ME gets the back (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SUDAN [and non]
This report dispatched at 1633 UT April 25
***********************************************************************


** BRAZIL [and non]. 11745, April 25 at 0223, some weak station with phone interview in unknown language is taking a direct hit from the RNA/RNB crackling spur. HFCC and Aoki show the only 11745 at any time is 02-03 RFA Tibetan via KUWAIT, and I think this is it rather than CNR1 jamming but which surely also attacks it from the other side. The matching spur on 11815 is in the clear, lucky it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CUBA: 6001
** CHINA [non]. 9580, April 25 at 0134, I notice that CRI English relay via CUBA has a barely audible weak LAH, unlike clear // 9570 ALBANIA. Still so at 0227 when CRI is in Chinese. 
So what could the understation be? Checking Aoki, we see a 9579 listing for PBS Radio ng Bayan, 500 watts in the Philippines, but this one is much closer to 9580.0, a pitch barely enough to be audible, and we`ve not seen any reports of PBS for years. What else? 
KBS World Radio direct from South Korea on 81 degree antenna toward Hawaii and S America, Japanese until 0200, then English, likely that and probably a bigger collision further south. Also after 0200 is listed PBS Xizang, Lhasa, Tibet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 6000, April 25 at 0236, RHC English dumps off the air for a second or two, maybe six times in the next minute, as I am noticing a het close to 1 kHz on the hi side. It`s too weak for any modulation, but clear during the RHC outages. 
When on, this and the other RHC English frequency, 6165, are both unreasonably weakened, undermodulated, and not enough to overcome the general storm noise level from adjacent states. The CRI relays from Cuba on 9 MHz do much better. Why does Arnie put all RHC`s English eggs in the one basket of 6 MHz? But he certainly can`t take propagational/frequency advice from me!
As for the carrier on 6001, could be: 4 kW EBC Brasília? R. Guaíba has also been reported lately on nominal 6000. 4XZ, Israeli Navy, Haifa has also shown up around here, but this is a continuous wave, not CW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 13580, April 25 at 0218, fair signal with very suptorted music, alla Qahira, but R. Cairo not scheduled here now: I`ll bet it`s a mis-punch for 13850, which is missing! Supposed to start at 0200 in Arabic to N America, and talk which follows could be Arabic. Abis does use 13580, however, for the Albanian service at 1500, on same 315 azimuth, and it`s horribly distorted too.
Checking HFCC later, I see that this will collide with BBC Hindi via Uzbekistan at 0230-0300 on 13580; ooh.
9315, April 25 at 0228, R. Cairo frequency is producing regular bursts of slightly wavering hi-pitched noise in regular pattern of 10 seconds on, 2 seconds off, way above JBM talk presumed English more audible during the pauses. A new kind of defect for miserable Misr.
9965.4, April 25 at 0230, R. Cairo, VG signal in Arabic, some distortion and whine; see also UNIDENTIFIED 9825 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, April 25 at 0230 check, no signal from ERTOpen. This is now the rule rather than exception (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, April 25 at 0108, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, until cutoff at 0109:25*. This is 31.5 seconds later than last check a pentanite ago, averaging 6.3 seconds later per. We should now be drawing close to another autotimer reset back closer to 0100*, only to start precessing again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13557, April 25 at 0215, HIFER beacon MTI is JBA. Haven`t heard him in a while: Stone Mountain, GA, 5 wpm per the LWCA list on 13557.54. Any others audible now? Yes, on the hi side of the ISM blob:
13564, April 25 at 0217, HIFER beacon GNK with much stronger signal than MTI; easy copy without strain, from Madison WI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1770 monitoring: whatever the program schedules may show appended to the WRMI graphic frequency schedule, the Friday April 24 broadcast at 2130.5 was on both 7570 and 15770, just as it had been for months, not on 7570 only, and we are glad this is so, since 7570 is sinking into the noise level, much worse than 15770. Next:
Sat 1930v WA0RCR 1860-AM
Sun 0315v WA0RCR 1860-AM
Sun 2100 WRMI 15770 
Sun 2300 WRMI 11580
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5110v Area 51 
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 
Wed 1315 WRMI 9955 
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v 
Thu 0330 WRMI 9955 [or 1771 if ready in time]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7505.4, April 25 at 0233 as I tune in, ``We`re 75-05, WRNO Worldwide`` and music. No we aren`t! Considerable distortion too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9825, April 25 at 0226, distorted whine with fading, so not a local device; like spurs we have heard before from Turkey or Egypt around here, but there are no strong signals nearby to produce it now. 9965.4 Cairo might do it, but can`t match the sound, nor is there another one +140 kHz on 10105, just CW hams, whew. Only thing scheduled on 9825 at any time is during this hour only, CRI English via Kashgar, a site not known for any such problems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0430 UT April 25
