** EGYPT. 9965, March 9 at 0019, R. Cairo in English, somewhat distorted and with perpetual whine, but mostly readable, about International Women`s Day 8 March; this 2300-2430 broadcast is supposed to stay on 9965 in A-14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980, March 9 at 0100, usual SAH between R. Chaski and BBC UAE carriers, JBM if any; SAH quits at 0104:49.5* when Urubamba cuts off, i.e. 11.5 seconds later than one binite ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1711 monitoring: confirmed on WRMI-14, 9495, UT Sunday March 9 at 0030, not last week`s edition. This airing to stay at same UT from next week even after DST shifts elsewhere.
Then I check 5085 expecting to hear it starting too on WTWW-2, but I`m already in Ukraine near the end! After best wishes to Marie Lamb, warning that Radio Shack is closing 1,100 more stores, propagation outlook, show ends at 0031:l1, so must have started this week at 0002:13 or so. ID and right into Amateur Radio Newsline #1908 recorded March 7, which normally follows us circa 0100. Presumably from next Saturday, nominal WOR time will be 2330 UT on day frequency 9930, but like this could even start by 2302.
Next: UT Sunday March 9 0501 on WTWW-1 5830; UT Monday March 10 0300v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, Saturday March 8 at 2348 check, WRMI is running `Wavescan` --- and again at 0021 check on fair 9495, 0022 on with Philippine DX news report (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7315, UT Sunday March 9 at 0200, final edition of `DXing with Cumbre` on WHRI; was checking 5920 just before 0200 and AWOL, but now it`s on too in //, but 7315 is better. I notified the DXLD yg of this by 0204.
Marie Lamb starts with her farewell address, but oddly first 2.5 minutes have QRM from jazz music --- her favorite but surely not intentional now. Then it goes away as she reads various testimonials from names we know. She credits DXLD for the news getting out about her quitting, but it really started with Chris Lobdell, who didn`t tell us, but Artie Bigley got it, and sent on to us.
At 0208 over to Chris for his valedictory; thanx especially Bill Hassig in IL as his most reliable pirate reporter; logs including 1720 Undercover Radio, then clips of R. Tango Italia, and Powerline. As usual, need more perfect WHRI reception to get anything out of these off-air recordings. Offers special finale QSL for reports to piratingwithcumbre at aol.com. 0219 sirens and promo Pirates for Peace; nothing from some downunderite, just 0220 classical music fill, 0225 soft jazz, but no further mention of DWC nor its own theme music.
There should be more repeats on Sunday/UT Monday, and WHRI *could* keep re-running same for several weeks as they have been doing for less-than-weekly produxions until now. Were all of the scheduled times on T8WH Palau imaginary? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6950-USB, fair signal March 9 at 0003, pirate with ``What Condition My Condition Is In``, but not by Kenny Rogers; 0007 dialog mentions Beanbag the Dog, trying to find recording of SFX to play in background; 0010, lame knockoff of Stones` ``Satisfaxion``, by ``George Burns``; 0011 refers to KAAY Little Rock [which I enjoy mistranslating as ``Poca Roca``]; 0012 narrative song about an accident; recheck 0026 it`s off.
Several other logs obviously of same station here between 2257 March 8 and 0025* UT March 9, but no one else got an ID, either:
