** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 4835, March 6 at 1225, VL8A carrier is on, despite none 22.5 hours earlier. But it`s totally buried by the music sideband of 4840 WWCR. Also check 120m, and find 2325 and 2485 carriers for sibling NT stations, nothing on 2310 of course.
After WWCR 1259*, 4835 in clear with continuing talk in English not // 9580 RA. WWCR has not yet posted DST schedule effective March 13, but HFCC B-15 registration is for it to close 4840 one UT hour earlier at 1159*, which will be good for VL8A listeners (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 9525, March 6 at 1230, no signal at all from VOI. Atsunori Ishida says not heard since March 2, at http://rri.jpn.org (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KYRGYZSTAN. 4819.955, March 6 at 1300, low audible heterodyne from off-frequency station against something closer to 4820.0 --- presumed Birinchi Radio = net 1 of KTRK, 15 kW transmitter at Krasnaya Rechka (which means Red River, presumably a place rather than a literal waterway), as habitually reported off-frequency, like 4819.94 by Anker Petersen, Denmark, Feb 26 at 1730. 4820.0 would be Kolkata, Lhasa, or both (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 15460, March 6 at 1236, good signal with keyboard music, 1240 RRI says ``open studio`` and starts `Listeners Letterbox` one after another with glowing comments about Romania and RRI, taken from entries to their latest quiz contest, starting with listeners in India and Ireland.
17765, March 6 at 1249 also audible with RRI Letterbox, resuming after music break, S7-S9, over at 1252 and music fill is ``Angels have their own demons``. Closing reveals that 17765 is to Africa along with 15150, and lookup shows the fourth frequency, to Europe was 13580. For one biweek from March 13 until the A-16 shuffle, we in the Central zone will have access to this at a more waking hour, 7-8 am = 12-13 UT; then it will revert to 6-7 am CDT = 11-13 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA. 15380, March 6 at 1235, open carrier at S3-S6. Per HFCC must be BSKSA at 12-14 in Arabic, 500 kW, 310 degrees USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020 & 9545, March 6 I`m awake early at 1230, so check for SIBC: no signal on either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 15350.05, March 6 at 1234, Turkish music at S5-S8. Nice to be getting some pre-sunrise propagation on 19m, finally closing in on equinoxial/springtime conditions. This is scheduled 07-14 toward WEu and NAm beyond. But in the A-16 season will be replaced by 11955 at 06-12 redirected to 150 degrees, not much use here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1860-LSB, March 6 at 0655, another check of WA0RCR, still running ham news on AM, `Amateur Radio Newsline` at the moment, finds a 2-way ham right atop, calling CQ Contest, WB9JOX, 5-9, Illinois. Is this accidental or some kind of protest? Surely he can hear WA0RCR, closer to Wentzville than I am: ORANT, THEODORE A, WB9JOX, PALOS HEIGHTS, IL 60463 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, March 6 at 1222, S5 signal with dialog, but too brief a check to decide whether Indonesian or Bougainvillean. Maybe Ron Howard will have noted which one was on at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4760, March 6 at 1227, 60m bandscan includes many JBA carriers on Indian frequencies, including this one, not 4765 or yesterday`s 4766. 4760 could be Port Blair, Andaman & Nicobar Islands; or Leh, Kashmir, back on frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
