1935- 4760- UNID- Unid  1935v*  Someone here daily since Dec. 23 fading
in around 1910 with man orating in unknown language; frequent short
bridges of Central Asian music featuring flutes, also exotic solo
vocals. Audio appears to be of telephone quality. S/off seems to vary
between 1930 and 1935, although the signal is so puny that it's not
always possible to be sure. This might be a clandestine or one of the
AIR stations on extended sked  or how about Afghanistan, which I seem to
recall used this freq some years ago with a s/off time of 1930. (Wishful
thinking, no doubt.) ---HILL, Littleton, MA, USA

ARMENIA - As of Dec 17, the English broadcast on 9965 was still starting
at 2115, not 2145 (Glenn Hauser, OK/ SW/DX Report 97-26, Dec 18 1997)

ARMENIA - I notice that some bulletins which ran the inaccurate V. of
Armenia sked did not think it necessary to run my previous item
correcting the English time as monitored. Here's another chance: As of
Dec 22, VOA on 9965 English was still at 2115, and still claiming to be
at 2145. BTW, sked says the "2145" broadcast is Mon-Sat only (Glenn

BOLIVIA  - 5985.0 Radio San Jose, Oruro, has celebrated its 40th
anniversary. The station was founded as Radio Combatia in Oruro, on
December 21, 1957. The shortwave outlet has been inactive for many
years, but it may be good chance to get QSL with its 40th anniversary
pennant. (TIN / RELAMPAGO DX  20/DEC/1997)

CUBA - RHC keeps coming up with new ways to shoot itself in the foot. We
could forget about hearing DXers Unlimited Tue Dec 16 at 2105 on 13715,
since it was //13680 in Spanish, but with heavy breakup on 13715,
possibly mixing syllables of English; and 13605-USB was missing (Glenn
Hauser, OK / SW/DX Report 97-26, Dec 18 1997)

ECUADOR - DX Partyline keeps lifting material of mine without credit,
although they know I object to this strongly. Latest instance is the
VOA-Liberia deathtrap item on Dec 6 DXPL, which apparently came via EDXP
where the credit properly given was deliberately deleted. There is no
doubt about this, since the words quoted came right out of my mouth in a
paraphrase. When they refuse to render common editorial courtesy, I have
no choice but to make public their transgressions (Glenn Hauser, OK /

FINLAND - Surprised to find YLE R. Finland with English news at 1303 Dec
16 on 11735, 15400; and English started over at 1330 as scheduled. Next
day at 1300 was back in Finnish as scheduled. Tape mixup? (Glenn Hauser,

GEORGIA - In a letter confirming my reception report Voice of Hope
thanks me for information about bad modulation on 6290 and say will try
to improve modulation. Few days after modulation become very good.My
opinion: they don't listen their own transmissions. In the schedule
announced from December 7  at 1355-1630 on 12120 transmission in

Hans Johnson and myself. Dec 16 at 1210, woman in Spanish with birthday

NIGERIA - [non]. V. of Free Nigeria tells me that from Dec 20, their
weekly broadcast Sat 1900-2000 moves from 11715 to 11645, because of
interference from Iran. VOFN is believed to come via Algeria (Glenn

POLAND - Further checks of PRW, English at 1300 on 9525 show that before
1300 there is a huge clash between RRI and VOA Creole, but both sign off
by 1301; however one of them usually leaves carrier on for some time,
once as late as 1315 spoiling Poland. Then PRW has been weaker than
before and seemingly with a bad rumble on its own carrier, as Dec 17, 18

SAN MARINO - RSMI likes to thank for all received e-mail reports,
specially for those received from North America. Unfortunately the
propagation were very strange this weekend. (on Sat 20. --ed) In
addition, due to a thunderstorm during night nearby our location in San
Marino, we had been forced to stop our broadcast for several hours and
to change a little the Sunday morning schedule. We heard again that the
discussions about our transmitting site are very active. Just a few
definitive words: our programmes are coming from a mobile site in the
Republic of  San Marino; in any case, if you do not believe that the
signal of RSMI is originated from San Marino, do not worry about this
and please just listen to our broadcast like any other unofficial
station from anywhere in the world, if you consider our programmes
interesting for you, independently from the country of origin !  However
we are very happy for the activation of a new country (any connection
with HAM), for all BCL and DX-er that belives in RSMI ! Till the next
transmission (probably on Sunday morning only, January 19th, 1998) all
the best from the RSMI staff. (Direct, RSMI via email)

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - [This is especially for EDXP, BC-DX and anyone
else who picked up the discussion about Dubai's English broadcast at
1330]. Bob seems to have misunderstood what I was trying to say. I was
NOT suggesting that editors must personally confirm everything they
publish; just saying that in this case I had already provided correct
info, and that subsequent incorrect info was published without referring
to the correct info. Of course the blame lies with stations which
distribute inaccurate info about their own schedule! (Glenn Hauser, OK /

U S A/HAWAII - Don't you believe all the new times publicized for DXing
with Cumbre. World Harvest Radio continues to treat the only program
worth listening to on WHRI and KWHR with disrespect, failing to
broadcast it at the times given. For instance, on Dec 13-14 it did NOT
appear as scheduled when I checked Sun 1300 on 7560, Sun 1330 on 15105,
Sun 2130 on 17555, and there have been many other instances I did not
make a note of (Glenn Hauser, OK / SW/DX Report 97-26, Dec 18 1997)

USA/HAWAII -. Replying to Joe Brashier, WHR in BC-DX: if programming was
being run manually Dec 13-14 during computer crash, why didn't they put
DXing with Cumbre on as scheduled? Hardly a week goes by without some
scheduled airing of DWC missing for no obvious reason, crash or no
crash. It's not my problem, but DWC's and WHR's (Glenn Hauser, OK/
