Glenn Hauser logs April 10-11-12 , 2015

** CUBA [and non]. 15730, April 12 at 1302, RHC on new frequency with its official 2-week-delayed start of A-15 schedule. VG but some deep fades, during Maduro anti-American speech clip from Panamá confab. So I check which other frequencies are on air and which not:
Confirmed after 1302 also on: 15370, 15230, 13740, 11950, 11860, 9820, 9640. NOT on: 17730, 11760, 9550.
However at 1418 check, 15730 and 13740 and 11860 are off. The latter two are now scheduled to close at 1400 but 15730 supposed to be 1500*
New A-15 schedule grid indeed no longer shows 17730 in the mornings, so 15730 is a replacement for that. 11760 is no longer on the morning schedule at all, not starting until 1800, toward Chicago! I`m hearing something else on 11760 after 1300, now sked as CRI English via Kunming at 12-14. 9550 is now scheduled for RHC at 11-13 only, via Titán site to San Francisco, so it will still be colliding with CRI in Vietnamese during that same bihour. 9550 replaces 6000. 13740 replaces former usage of 11950, while 11950 replaces 11760. 
11950, Sunday April 12 at 1502.5, RHC Esperanto starts late, but on new scheduled single frequency. The other weekly airings are listed as 0700 on 6100 (extended from 0700* English), and 2230 on 15370 (instead of French Mon-Sat). No change there except we know that the 0700 could appear on any one or two of the 6 MHz channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 4790-, April 12 at 0523, JBA carrier in heavy CODAR QRM, offset on the low side. Recheck at 1037, still low, now a bit of talk modulation audible, sermon? and less CODAR. I can also tell that the carrier is wobbling slightly. According to Dave Valko, this is R. Visión, reactivated as of April 11 at 0945-1038, and measured on 4789.79. WRTH 2015 still listed it as 24 hours with 1 kW, but it`s been off for many months. 
The new DSWCI Tropical Bands Survey issued a few days previous, now needs to be updated, and no doubt will be the following month, showing this was last heard in November 2014; B means Irregular. I thought it had been off longer than that:
``B 4789.9 0.5 PRU R Visión, Distrito José 0900-0200v S/Quechua rlg // 1350 MW, ID: "Desde Chiclayo la ciudad Leornardo Ortiz, Chiclayo, de la mistad [sic] en 1350 kHz amplitud modulada transmite Radio Visión, Lambayeque Radio Visión, una radio para todos"; Iglesia Pentecostal programme NOV14`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1670, April 12 at 0527 UT, sports talk looping almost E/W, toward ENE/WSW, definitely not from NNE/SSW, which would be the usual occupant WOZN Madison WI. Besides, this IDs as Fox Sports Radio at 0530 UT and talk continues, while Madison is CBS Sports. Therefore it is either KNRO in Redding CA or WPLA Dry Branch (Macon) GA, both FSR affils. I must go with GA as far more likely here; too bad there was no echo signifying them both. Meanwhile northerly Madison is quite weakened, barely audible with this nulled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VIETNAM. 12001.26 approx., April 12 at 1324, VOV is even further off-frequency from nominal 12000, in Chinese for a few more minutes. As other Frog owners will be familiar, when tuned to the upper end of the 11-12 MHz band, the Wadley Loop birdie on 12000 makes a het with anything like this; but when tuned to the lower end of the 12-13 MHz band, there is no such birdie/het. On my FRG-7, however, the lowest 100+ kHz of any MHz band are much less sensitive than the overlap up to +055 kHz when tuned at the top of the band below; needs alignment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST
This report dispatched at 1613 UT April 12
** ALBANIA. 9850, April 12 at 0124, R. Tirana IS, fair signal reading 15-26 dbu on the PL-880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11815 & 11745, April 12 at 0120, crackling spurs from 11780.1v RNA/RNB, and a weaker one detectable around 11710 but no RAE to QRM on a weekend (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 15370, April 11 at 1310, no signal from RHC, nor 15730, nor 15230, but this time it`s a propagation disturbance as 19m is almost dead except for something Arabish? weak on 15620 [no, it must be VOA in Somali via BOTSWANA]. But by 1323, 15370 is starting to fade in at very poor level, and also always even weaker 15230. By 1352, 16m is still dead [WWV says K index at 12 was 4, but ``no storms``]. By 1355, the CRI relay carrier on 15700 is on at good level, but still no RHC on 15730. Guess that NF will start April 12, maybe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 9965.4, April 12 at 0055, R. Cairo with VG signal, Arab pop music, rather distorted but good modulation level, not suppressed
9315.0, April 12 at 0056, R. Cairo ``Spanish`` is open carrier/dead air but at least not off-frequency
12070+, April 12 at 0057, R. Cairo, fair with heavy flutter, dead air; only slightly on hi side, probably less than .1
11935, April 12 at 0057, LAH under RB2, Brasil, again presumed to be the other Cairo Spanish transmitter. One or both could be off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST
** OKLAHOMA. 960, April 12 at 0100-0105 UT, KGWA Enid with unexpected Fox-hole of dead air, audiblizing KGKL: See U S A 960 log (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, April 11 at 1351 UT, KLGB-LP is still open carrier/dead air; and still at 2013 UT, i.e. at least 48 hours of it. By 0327 UT April 12 check, it`s finally back modulating, but can still hear KVBN bleed during pause (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, April 12 at 0052, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, still at 0107 retune until cutoff at 0108:07* which is 8.5 seconds later than yesterday. My streetlite ignited already around 0105, which would have been later if the sky were not cloudy (and one lightning stroke later at 0124 which persuaded me to close down for now) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, April 12 at *0110:52-0111:03*, SLBC pre-test of carrier, good signal level, then from *0111:32 or so, a much weaker carrier on, steps up a little, but not to original level. I`m getting a 26-44 dbu reading on the PL-880, but the carrier cuts on and off and on. Music prélude starts at 0114:53, but shortly cuts off the air, not back on until 0115:50, having hopped past the expected mistimesignal, more carrier cuts off and on, etc. What`s going on at Trincomalee? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)
** UKRAINE. 11580, April 12 at 0048, RUI is back on WRMI, during mailbag, whew: 24 hours earlier, `Wavescan` was running instead during this semihour. An American asks if there are any Subway sandwich shops in Ukraine. Reply: subways in several cities including Kiev, but no sandwiches inside them: sandwiches may be found just outside some stations. He didn`t realize this was Subway with a capital S. Meanwhile, 5850 WRMI is relaying Slovakia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1768 monitoring: Confirmed starting at 0328.5 UT Sunday April 12 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Missouri. Vern truncates our opening to minimize the music and the billboard, and inserts own IDs, such as at 0338. Next:
Sun 2100 WRMI 15770 [NEW on schedule, but not last week; try 7570]
Sun 2300 WRMI 11580

Thu 0330 WRMI 9955 [or 1769 if ready in time]
** U S A [and non]. 9525, April 11 after 2130, just in case, I check out the frequency via UTwente, since WORLD OF RADIO appeared there via BULGARIA two weeks ago but not one week ago. And not this week either, no signal.
Are they still on the air via WRMI? 11825, Sat April 11 at 2200, Brother Scare finished, WRMI ID, Global 24 ID, and into `Feature Story News` headlines, only three of them, including Russian and American are blasting off to space station. That was on March 27, so here we have ``olds`` from more than two weeks ago.
I am checking out Global 24, since it`s been that long since there has been any new info on their website or Facebook, i.e. program schedule for March 28-30.
Still on the air, yes, but back to the routine of more and more old stuff, apparently automation playing out from archives lacking anything new. After the headlines, into `Upstate Radio Theater`, introducing oldtime radio shows, starting with ``Johnny Dollar`` episode from 11/26/61, ``The Mad Bomber Matter`` That`s exactly the same episode which was on the Global 24 schedule for March 28, but then it was at 23 UT on 5850. 
Previously on 11825 Sat at 2203-2400 was `The Rock Pile`. This fortnight `Pile` starts instead at 2303, after 3 minutes of outdated news including Boehner will travel to Israel later this month (March). Not sure it`s `The Rock Pile` since started right off with ``Jump`` then another familiar classic rock tune, finally 2311 intro (or midtro) as `The Rock Pile`. Not checked again until 0051, when `Blues Radio International` is very good. That matches the old sked, when it was at 0030; and likewise `Travel with Rick Steves` after 0100 at 0110 check, discussing Cuba.
What about 5850? That`s what previously carried `Upstate Radio Theater` at 23-24 Sat. Today at 23 I at first think 5850 is not on, but it`s just too weak on the ATS-909 next to my noisy computer. Later at 2338 UT check outside, it`s `Democracy Now`, which is normally on M-F only at this time. Maybe it`s yesterday`s episode, about Cuba, but then it`s often about Cuba, and could be as old as the other shows (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** U S A. 7505+, April 12 at 0113, WRNO continues AWOL as it has been for a few nights now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 960, April 12 at 0101 UT, local KGWA Enid is in another Fox-hole! I.e. dead air during Fox newscast which we often find at local midnite 0500-0505 UT. I`ve long suspected there could be others, but have better things to do than monitor KGWA constantly. 
Anyhow, I can now hear something clearly with it nulled: GEICO ad and back to a silly baseball game, batter being some guy Hernández (ergo a multi-millionaire), finished already at 0103 (strike out?), and ID as Rangers Radio Network. That`s all I need. See affiliate map/list at:
showing the only 960 is KGKL San Angelo TX (which I also have often heard in the other Fox-hole with ABC News). The only other 960 in TX is KIMP, but not on the list, which it could have been as the Rangers do have a few Spanish affiliates too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1500, April 12 at 0104 UT, with KSTP nulled, CBS News making SAH of about 3 Hz; 0105 right into NWS automaton with local weather for ``Denison and surrounding locations``. Some nostalgic music and full sign-off by KJIM, Sherman TX, with 1000 watts power, owner and address, ``now leave the air`` until 6 am with CBS News, and ``the best songs and memories on the radio``.
Official April SS/SR for KJIM are 0100/1200 UT (May: 0115/1130), so they figure it`s OK to run 7 minutes over. As for 6 am = 1100 UT, that would be their 500-watt PSRA, which is valid only April thru July. FCC Correspondence shows KJIM also has a hefty PSSA of 5 or 6 watts during the first quarter-hour post-sunset in May-June-July only, then boost up to a hefty 16 watts for the rest of the two hours. Really? All other months, their PSSA power is 0.0 watts. My second-closest 1500, not new, but always nice to hear this good local station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0402 UT April 12
** ALBANIA. 9850-, April 11 at *0122:12, R. Tirana comes on with IS, up from the noise floor of 00-17 dbu to 10-24 dbu. During the following English to North America, Wolfgang Büschel measured it 27 Hz low (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11770-11790, April 11 at 0056, RNA/RNB 11780.1v is splattering up and down, in addition to the usual separate crackling spurs circa 11815 and 11745. The RAE Argentina IS on 11711- is also marred by the weaker one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 2749-USB, April 11 at 0102, very poor signal but YL voice, presumably marine weather; then I check 2598-USB and hear more of same, probably not //, both too weak to read --- but first time I`ve heard either in months, not all winter, so suspected the Canadian Coast Guard may have closed them, but Bill Hepburn confirmed they were still on. His listings
show these must have been, on shared frequencies, at this hour:
2749, VCO, Sydney NS, starting at 0040
2598, VCP-4, Placentia NL, starting at 0048
** CHINA [and non]. 15565, April 11 at 0051, CNR1 jammer, poor signal with low rumbling audible heterodyne, Chinese and CCI, this being the VOA via THAILAND hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6060, April 11 at 0045 UT, RHC with someone speaking ``church Spanish``, and sure `nuff, it`s the Pope`s portable voice, with official greeting to the President of Panamá, as the big-deal Seventh Summit is getting underway, seemingly live coverage. 
17730, tuning around further, at 0052 UT April 11 I find this RHC frequency still on air with same, and holding up with a VG signal. Vatican spoxeman is finishing and at 0053 a childlike voice introduces the next speaker, Secretary General of the OAS, also greeting the Pan Pres & spouse. Also on 9710, 9535, 15230, 11760, 11840, 13740 at least.
This must be pre-empting regular programming, and do not be surprised if there is more of this on Saturday, even causing some frequency extensions. According to the brand-new A-15 schedule, 17730 is supposed to finish at 2300 after European service from Bauta #1, and switch to 11670 for Rio de Janeiro until 0400. 
17730 is still on at 0111 with someone speaking in English (a number of Caribbean countries are in this), but voice-over translation into Spanish, bummer.
Anyhow, RHC is doing a lot more on the Summit than we can ever expect from VOA --- and I wonder how R. Martí will be playing it, as the Cuban-Americans are none too happy about Pres. Obama meeting with Pres. Castro.
6165 meanwhile is back in whack tonight, after last night`s total disaster of huge noise blob instead of English. But it`s normal RHC programming at 0111 // 6000, not Summit-live (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT [and non]. 9315, April 11 at 0113, R. Cairo, fair signal, open carrier/dead air instead of Spanish
9965, April 11 at 0113, R. Cairo, good signal with whine, Arabic is JBM, then BM with ID at 0114
12070, April 11 at 0114, R. Cairo, fair signal and suptorted, supposedly Spanish
11935, April 11 at 0116, the LAH under RB2 BRAZIL with its frequent IDs is presumably the other Cairo frequency, nothing on 12035 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1560, April 10 at 1820 UT on caradio, KEBC Del City is once again back on its own, no longer duplicating 1520 KOKC, where rebuild of a single tower must now be complete. Instead on 1560 I am hearing Oklahoma high school sports promos (same one twice?), and Oklahoma Dept of Health PSA, 1822 UT rejoining NBC Sports Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, April 10 at 2008 UT, now it`s at least 24 hours of dead air from KLGB-LP Enid, deadline for license cancellation under gh`s proposed FCC rules. Still with bleed from 99.9 co-station. And still at 0340 UT April 11 --- make that 31 hours and counting (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 9740, April 11 at 0049, Qur`an, fair signal, presumed R. Sultanate of Oman, having failed to switch to 9500 at scheduled 0000. Registered time for 9740 is 22-24 UT only, and someone on the NASWA Flashsheet had an unID then which must have been this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, April 11 at 0046, JBA carrier from R. Chaski; autocutoff happens at 0107:58.5* which is 5.5 seconds later than last night, back to customary slippage. My streetlight RF burst and visible ignition haven`t happened yet, even tho sunset horizon is cloudy, but surely within the next few minutes when I miss it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, April 11 at *0114:10.5, carrier on from SLBC (and no pre-burst since 0111 tune-in), prélude at 0114:49.5; 2+1 pips until 0115:19, right on mis-time, opening. Signal is only poor, not the good but fluttery one it habitually achieved in Feb and Mar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1768 monitoring: confirmed Friday April 10 at 2130.5 on WRMI 7570 and still also on // 15770. 
Also confirmed at 0130 UT Saturday April 11 on new outlet Radio Free Dishnuts, webcasts via
Our other time is Tuesdays 1330. Their program schedule is outdated.

** U S A. 5109, April 10 at 0039, WBCQ is audible but weaker than before; by 0042 I can tell that it`s Brother Scare, // 7570 WRMI but not synch. At 0059, 5109 breaks for WBCQ ID, and back to BS. 
7490 meanwhile has Allan Weiner Worldwide, without AW. At 0040 VG signal, someone talking about reviving the Kennedy Space Center, and TimTron appears to be the substitute host. Goes to music around 0056, not sure if a break or program over, but by 0108 it`s BS here, about one word behind 5109. Normally during AWWW starting at 0000 UT Saturdays, both 7490 and 5109 would be carrying him. Checked 9330 and 15420 just in case, and still no signals there. 
5109 should also carry Area 51 on UT Saturdays, but this weekend`s schedule at skips Friday night:
On-air, April 11-12, 2015
All on WBCQ 5.110 MHz and

8pm 0000 John Lightning/11L-RNI
11pm 0300 Glenn Hauser’s World of Radio 1768
1130pm 0330 Grits Radio
** U S A. 11580, UT Saturday April 11 at 0057, surprised to hear AWR Wavescan on this WRMI frequency, which had been and is still scheduled to carry R. Ukraine International daily at 0030-0100; not // 9955 yet, but at 0110 check they both air the same gospel huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15825, April 10 at 2007, no signal, not even a JBA carrier from WWCR-1, which per current sked is supposed to run until 2200. It might have been propped-out, except 15610 WEWN is very good at the same distance, different angle; and so is 13845 WWCR. Before 0100 UT April 11, I do notice WWCR-1 present on 6115 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 2660+, April 11 at 0103 UT, some music audible and slightly on the hi side, i.e. 2 x 1330 harmonic of KGLD Tyler TX. The 2 MHz band noise level is surprisingly low (see also CANADA), so I step thru the frequencies with offset BFO for possible other MW harmonics to pursue: JBA carriers on 2840, 2680, 2620, 2610, 2520, i.a. But some of these could be SW mixing products within the DX-398 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 0402 UT April 11 
** AUSTRALIA. 9580, 12085 & 12065, Friday April 10 at 1314, R. Australia amid `Keys to Music` appreciation show, discussing Chaikovsky, with some examples, guest being new conductor of the Christchurch Symphony; 1332 finally playing Francesca da Rimini complete to applause at 1359, no program outro but RA promo, 1400 news, 1406 `Conversations with Richard Fidler`, guest this time an astrophysicist/cosmologist, Alan Duffy, about colliding galaxies, etc.
Lots of stimulating talk programming on the RA schedule now, so I go thru the entire week and pick out some of them with current timings, and update three of them on DX/SWL/MEDIA programs:
`Late Night Live` is still on sked but only at 06-07 UT Tue thru Fri (when it really is late night in America at least).
`Download This Show` --- Fri 0430, Sun 1105, Mon 1730, Tue 1930
`Media Report` --- Thu 0730, 2230
`Future Tense` --- Thu 1930, Fri 0930, Sun 0130, Tue 0430
`Keys to Music` --- Fri 1305-1400, Sun 1805-1900
`Daily Planet` --- (world music) Mon thru Thu 1305-1400
Frequencies remain just: 09-21 12085, 12065, 9580; 21-09 17840, 15415, 15240 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. CNR1 jammers morning of April 10:
11500, April 10 at 1350, CNR1 jammer, very good with flutter; no 10s
11785, April 10 at 1350, CNR1 jammer, fair with flutter and close to matching 11500. This one is vs VOA via Philippines
11970, April 10 at 1350, CNR1 jammer, fair with flutter, not synch with 11500; Aoki shows 11500 vs Sound of Hope; and 11970 vs Radio Free Asia via SOH, Taiwan
12910, April 10 at 1353, CNR1 jammer, very poor with flutter
13920, April 10 at 1354, CNR1 jammer, very poor with flutter
15115, April 10 at 1355, CNR1 jammer mixing equally with VOA Thailand
15265, April 10 at 1355, CNR1 jammer with het. Aoki shows during this hour only, 15265 bears both RTI from Tainan, perpetually off-frequency; and RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan. None propagating in the 14s, 16s, 17s, 18s, 19s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6165, April 10 at 0538, RHC is *still* totally out of whack, nothing but noise blob on this `English` frequency, and blocking three channels, as first noted at 0131. At least four hours of this and nobody notices at Bauta that 100 kW transmitter #4 on antenna #10 toward Chicago needs a bit of attention!
15370, April 10 at 1311, RHC is back on this frequency, which had been missing since last heard April 5. A-15 RHC sked effective tomorrow still shows 15370 as 100 kW Bauta #4, on antenna #8 toward San Francisco at 13-15; while 15730 will be new for 100 kW Bauta transmitter #1, on antenna #4 toward Rio de Janeiro at 11-15. So never mind my guess that 15730 might be a typo --- both are on the schedule. 
Also, 11950 at 15-18 UT nondirexional is labeled Esperanto Sunday only, but that would only apply to the first half hour, so not clear if it really be on daily otherwise in Spanish for the full period, but no other frequency, not even previous 11760, is shown during that midday trihour.
Sorting out the three transmitter sites, everything is Bauta, EXCEPT:
5 x 250 kW at Titán: 11-13 9550; 11-15 15230; 21-05 11840; 22-05 15230; 23-07 6000.
2 x 50 kW at Bejucal: 11-15 9640, 21-04 9710, 2230-0030 15370;
1 x 100 kW (called #9) at Bejucal: 11-15 9820, 21-05 9535
** MADAGASCAR. 13840, April 10 at 0546, NHK in French is good, and hardly any Egypt on 13850 to spur here tonight.
13765, April 10 at 0545, Vatican Radio in Portuguese is good to very good here, also via Talata. Meanwhile, R. Dabanga on 13800 & 11650 are merely via Vatican, jammed, and much weaker than these; see SUDAN [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1520, April 10 at 1320 UT, KOKC remains on air, and IDs as ``Your 50,000-watt news source, News-talk 1520, KOKC`` --- NOT HARDLY --- as we all know (but not ordinary listeners?), it`s not been 50 kW for at least a couple of years, but 12.5 and now only 10 kW. THEY LIE. Also at this hour with SAH from remnant of CRI via KYND TX. Slightly different angles allow KOKC to be minimized and KYND maximized by precise positioning of the DX-398 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, April 10 at 0548 UT, KLGB-LP, Enid is still dead air except for bleedthru from sibling station 99.9 KVBN-LP; with automated time and temp, and then at 0554 an hymnified version of 1812 Overture, of all things. Next check at 1349 UT, still dead air, etc. Ditto at 1706 UT, now in the twenty-first hour, at least, of negligence (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [and non]. 11650, April 10 at 0544, tone jammer and R. Dabanga, both poor.
13800, April 10 at 0545, 2-tone jammer very poor and R. Dabanga is JBA here. At this hour both channels are via VATICAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SWAZILAND. 15360, April 10 at 1359, TWR music box IS, poor signal, and ``Trans World Radio, Swaziland`` ID, into Urdu. This station knows where it really is, even tho in WRTH you have to find it under INDIA, and all other Manzini broadcasts under SOUTH AFRICA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5109+, April 10 at 0540, Overcomer // 5890 WWCR but not synched with it. Very slightly on hi side of 5109, nowhere near nominal 5110. Only fair in storm noise crashes. Once again this WBCQ transmitter is on late at night, but TOM sked for it unknown. Is there any ``5110`` entry in either SW schedule at the Overcomer website? Of course not! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 1620, April 10 at 0558 UT, I find that R. Rebelde, CUBA is unusually dominant, but nulling it I hear some rock music past hourtop, later non-ID by YL as ``double-play on U-93``. Therefore it`s WDND South Bend IN, which, BION, AFAIK has never been logged here before (I don`t keep a master log, but searching out my archived log reports this century). NRC AM Log shows WDND relays FM 92.9 by that name, really WNDV. 1620 is normally occupied here by news/talker WTAW TX and sportster KOZN NE, if not Cuba. Where are they? At next hourtop 0659 UT, I do pull out a WTAW ID amid the QRM, so it`s still there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 99.1, April 10 at 0553 UT, Christian rock in $tereo with K-LOVE on the DX-398 RDS, not noticed here before. WTFDA FM Database shows no Okies on 99.1, so this must be Kansas: KTLI El Dorado, 100 kW at 188 meters. El Dorado is just NE of Wichita on the Turnpike (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
