Hauser
** CHINA. 13640, April 29 at 2205, fair S7 signal in Japanese, which I figure is NHK, but HFCC says I`m wrong, it`s CRI at 22-24, 500 kW, 59 degrees also USward from Jinhua site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9455, April 29 at 2157, British accented headlines, outro as `FG Radio`, as scheduled for Sat 2145 on JBA WRMI 15770, which is duplicated on 9455 during this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9799.6, April 29 at 2155, S9+15 signal but JBM music, no doubt R. Cairo during 2115+ English sesquihour for Europe and USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** LITHUANIA [non]. 11580, Sat April 29 at 2200, `Bye, Bye, Sitkunai` special hour has just started, for the third week in a row at this time on unscheduled frequency --- and could continue for months (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6145, April 30 at 0030, The Mighty KBC with Kim`s Radiogram beeps one hour earlier than usual as `The Giant Jukebox` is one hour early, the entire transmission this week only shifted on hour early starting at 2300 April 29, in order to avoid RHC which usurped the frequency from 0100. It`s S9+10/20 at 0050 when Kraig W Krist introduces his `Forgotten Song` this week, from a Winnipeg rock band in 1965. 0054 usual end-of-show shoutouts by Uncle Eric, 0055 announcing next week will move to 9925 (and back to 0000-0200). Final music stops at 0100 sharp, but carrier stays on --- or rather it`s the RHC carrier which may have been on earlier, but not enough to be noticed vs KBC. By 0101 some JBM is audiblizing from RHC English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, April 30 at 0107, pirate music at S9+10/20; 0111 as expected, `Wolverine Radio` ID interjected. By 0148 recheck it`s off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, April 30 at 0050, still not even a JBA carrier detectable from R. Chaski. Maybe it`s habitually closing earlier than 0100v now? Claudio Galaz, Chile, was hearing it before 2400 on April 24 and 25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 29 at 2154, VOT IS is running vs RTTY on exactly same frequency, and line noise level, so the following English broadcast will be useless here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1875 monitoring: confirmed April 25 at 2254, the Saturday 2230 airing on WBCQ 9330.50v-CUSB, fair-good. Also confirmed starting after newscast at 2334 Saturday April 25 on IRN webcast, and presumably on Challenger Radio, 846 kHz, Italy, as provided by IRRS which Alfredo Cotroneo tells us is playing WOR at random times, but this seems to be a reliable one. Unfortunately, the 29-minute program can`t fit into 26 minutes, but is faded out after about 27 minutes as a YL briefly interrupts, again around 28, and then into music rather than another newscast on the hour. Also confirmed UT Sunday April 30 at 0329 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM as I am talking about the 250 kW (??) new transmitter in Liberia, which is about 17 minutes in, so started circa 0312. Next:
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.6v-CUSB, April 29 at 2158, BS via WBCQ has varied up more to the plus side than lately, fair-good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930 plus spurs 9917.1 & 9942.9, Sat April 29 at 2153, WTWW-2 is still running with radio-talk by Ted, maybe 3 hours after it should have started; S9+40 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0601 UT April 30

** ALBANIA [non]. 5850, April 28 at 2258, no signal from WRMI-12 (nor 5950, WRMI-14, both off?). 5850 does not cut on until *2301.5, joining in progress new R. Tirana relay in English. Such are the risks of being the first program on any transmission. Now I`m hearing Tirana better than I have in well over a year, before their own Shijak transmitter starting malfunxioning but still remained on air for a year.

Yet it`s far from perfect as the 5850 signal at S9+20 is not enough to overcome the S6 noise level. There is also fading, and the accent of the announcers which makes for readability of R4 at best. I make detailed log notes for this auspicious occasion, which was supposed to be yesterday but the audio file then did not come thru with modulation.

Clara with news in progress, 2304 mid-ID, Italian resort venture in Albania, Tirana mayor on 9 megaeuro to be spent on student dorms; 2308 livestock(?) exports growing. 2309 theme and next segment press review: negotiations re EU and Albania; documents re elexion standards; something about a joint operation with Montenegro police, in SELEC = Southeast Europe Law Enforcement Centre.

2314 announcement of the times for English on webcast, 7x [sic] via http://www.rtsh.al/radio-tirana-3
--- something I had not heard about before, in local time but here I convert to UT: 2200, 0130, 0600, 0830, 1130, 1600, 1800; and 1900 (also?) on SW 6005 [Kall, Germany; no mention yet of WRMI relay].

2315 `Albania and the European Integration Process` now switched to OM announcer, something about Croatia. 2317.5 introducing 4 songs of `Albanian Hits` first titled ``I Have You`` or something like that; #2 at 2321:20; #3 (or #4?) at 2325:30; 2327:50 quick sign-off and playing IS seven times and a fraxion until 2329:30 cut to Okeechobee-song ID.

Reception improved slightly by 2315, but unfortunately this is an all-daytime path on 5 MHz band which requires night or semi-night for best (or any) propagation. Okeechobee sunset is circa 0000 UT and edging later for a couple months more. Too bad this is not on 7 or 9 MHz band if the time must be 2300.

But it`s a start! Welcome back, Radio Tirana, to a North American audience. Now that we can hear the programming, so far it`s too heavy on ``official`` news content, i.e. government-related, but at least it`s Albanian, not bothering with world news which is available everywhere.

A complete English program schedule would be handy, but I find only one in Albanian at
https://rtsh.al/programi-radio-tirana/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6890-AM, April 28 at 2321, pirate music at S7-S8. Besides the line noise level, now there`s electric fence popping to S9 every few seconds. I have not visually sighted the fence in the neighborhood. Probably Unknown Name Radio Network which has been on various frequencies around here. Yes, see this thread:
Unknown Name Radio Network 6890 then 6880 then 6895 AM 2220 UTC 28 Apr 2017 [onwards]
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,34524.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN. 9735, April 29 at 1320, good S9 signal one of the best on band, in Japanese soon ID as ``Taiwan Hoso desu``. It`s RTI this hour, 100 kW, 45 degree beam from Paochung, also favorable for carrying way on to deep North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 28 at 2325, Turkishish music S9 with no RTTY this late, still past 2330, presumed the VOT German hour which yet again the Emirler sloppyrators have allowed to run on after English to North America finishes circa 2250. Only 9830 thing in HFCC this hour is CNR southward from Beijing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1875 monitoring: confirmed Friday April 28 at 2230 on WRMI 11580; // 5950 is JBA in noisie level; by 2258 recheck, not even a JBA carrier, off? (Anyway, this is the last week for WOR on 5950, as from May, the new relay of RAE Argentina al Mundo in Spanish will be at 2200-2300 M-F southward on 5950.) Also confirmed Friday April 28 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.95-CUSB, fair, drifting down to 9329.90 within a minute.

Storms here Saturday morning April 29, so computer off and no check of UTwente for 1431 on HLR 7265-CUSB, which I have not been able to confirm remotely anyway for some weeks. Next:
Sat 1930v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sat 2230 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Sun 0310v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND

Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1479.967, April 29 at 0537 UT, 1-kHz step bandscan with BFO finds sore-thumb off-frequency carrier here; 0610 UT ad in English with a 972-904-#### phone number, and covering ``from North Texas north to Oklahoma City``. So KBXD Dallas not with Namaste at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1700, April 29 at 0541 UT, I am paying more attention to the Spanish here from KKLF Richardson (Metroplex) TX. Slogan ID as Banda Trece plus informaciÃn y deportes, but plays music, in fact a rock song in English! 0546 UT another ID, then Spanish romantic song. 0553 UT after an ad, I clearly copy non-ID as ``Banda 13, mÃsica, informaciÃn y deportes``. So why isn`t it ``Banda Diez y Siete``?? Where does the 13 come from? Arctic Radio Club DXers were reporting this latest slogan change over a month ago, along with a verie displaying the logo.

NRC AM Log 2016-2017 had it as `Super Estelar`, Tejano format, with an address in faraway Corpus Christi. Radio-Locator currently shows even more outdated ``Kick 1700`` name. And ``no website``. O yes, there is, as a simple search reveals: Banda Trece is a ``network`` which came to 1700 at the New Year.
http://www.banda13radionetwork.com/

``Frecuencia Deportiva con Xavier Olalde is now officially on Banda 13. After broadcasting to the local Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, San Francisco and Miami markets, Xavier Olalde will have his show on Banda 13 Radio. The most popular Spanish morning sports show, Frecuencia Deportiva con Xavier Olalde, will air on Banda13.net weekdays from 7-9a Central Time. Along with the show, Banda 13 Radio will have programming for more Spanish sports shows, followed by music in the afternoon online at www.banda13.net or on 1700AM in the Dallas Fort Worth region, starting late November.

Frecuencia Deportiva con Xavier Olalde
Monday-Friday 7-9a (CT)
http://banda13.net
Banda 13 Radio``

This still doesn`t explain where the 13 comes from, maybe approx. frequency of station in one of the other markets?? Various logos imply that the name applies only to this 1700 station, so the 13 may not allude to a frequency at all. Could be it`s of some sporting significance to the SS.

More about station`s history of format and ownership changes:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KKLF
Not including Super Estelar, nor the original reason for the KKLF calls, to duplicate KLIF 570; and ``Banda 13`` still unexplained (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALBANIA [non]. Glenn, Thanks for putting Christian in touch re Tirana. We have worked out the technical details. Do you think 2300 UTC on 5850 would be good? (Jeff White, WRMI, April 26, WORLD OF RADIO 1875, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Jeff, If you can confirm a time and start date (daily except Sundays?), I can mention it on upcoming WOR. So that would replace the AWR Cuba broadcast?

5850 should be good as far as here, but that early in the summer, 7570 would reach further across the continent {and overcome storm noise better}. I assume we are talking about Tirana`s English broadcast only (Glenn to Jeff, via DXLD)

Well, we could start with 5850 at 2300 and then see what becomes available. Yes, it would replace AWR Cuba at that hour. I don't know which day we will start yet, but I will coordinate this with Christian. Maybe May 1. Yes, English only, Monday-Saturday (Jeff White, April 26, WORLD OF RADIO 1875, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Since R. Tirana can no longer broadcast on SW direct from Albania, glad that a relay via WRMI is being arranged, something I have been advocating since last year (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1875, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WRMI TO BEGIN RELAY OF RADIO TIRANA

Recently Radio Tirana in Albania ended its broadcasts on shortwave. Radio Tirana's programs were legendary during the years of the Cold War, when it was one of the strongest signals on the shortwave bands. Its programming is entirely different now in a free Albania, but the signal was quite poor in recent years, at least in the Americas.

Now, WRMI will be relaying Radio Tirana's daily English program Monday-Saturday at 2300 UTC on 5850 kHz to North America, beginning today, April 27, 2017 (WRMI fb via gh, DXLD)

Great, so you can bet I am tuned in to 5850 at 2259 UT April 27: after Biermann ID, dead air! 2305 can hear some barely audible music fill, then fades up, a World Music song in Spanish at 2308. By 2313 mostly DA, strength S9+5 to S9+15 vs local line noise level. As I had told Jeff, 7 MHz would be better: the BS frequencies, 7570 at S9+35, 7730 with S9+30. Still music at 2317 when I give up on 5850.

Later heard from Jeff. He`s getting the audio files uploaded by Christian Milling who has already aired them at 1900 UT on Shortwaveservice 6005 Kall, Germany. There is something wrong, or incompatible, with this mp2 audio file. I download it too and altho some modulation is showing on the Winamp meter, nothing at all can be heard. No doubt they`ll get this corrected for subsequent broadcasts.

Bruce Churchill in California reported: ``R Tirana via WRMI as monitored via Perseus SDR on 4/27 in MA at 2320 was only carrier, no audio - audio appeared suddenly at 2324 with nice signal. Heard from SDR in Edmonton AB at 2330 with S2 signal``. By :24 minutes into the broadcast, R. Tirana is normally playing music, so not clear whether he was hearing that or some WM from Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 570, April 28 at 0455, dominant signal here with choral NA early, stops at 0456 but no ID, so sign-off? Nothing further heard. Loops south, so I would expect XEBJB Monterrey NL. IRCA Mexican Log as of 2015 showed XEBJB as 24 hours, but some others going off at 0500 or 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-AM, April 27 at 2307, very poor pirate music at S9 in noise level. Next check April 28 at 0444, still/again on with music at S9+5 vs S8 QRN level. Presumably Unknown Name Radio Network which has been reported over a very long timespan in

** NORTH AMERICA. 7615-AM, April 28 at 0437, Station YHWH is on at S9, but not heard after 0500. Getting to be quite regular. More reports:

** U S A. 7490.1-AM, Thu April 27 at 2317, WBCQ with Uncle Bill playing a polka, S8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 690, April 28 at 0454 UT, outro from a network (?) called Radio One, then local weather from KGGF Coffeyville KS, axually from a YL weatherperson at NewsOnSix = KOTV-45 (for a while longer), Tulsa. I continue to lament that KGGF no longer carries Jim Bohannon at 02-05 UT, which used to be our best source, so at 0457 UT I check whether he`s still on: KWTO 560 Springfield MO, KFEQ 680 St Joseph MO --- yes, he is. KWTO is where he worked early in his career. I don`t find a network named Radio One in the list on page 271 of the NRC AM Log, nor as a station group on page 276, nor as a show on page 272.

`When Radio Was` is on the schedule at 11 pm-midnight CT M-F

** U S A. 1020, April 28 at 0500 UT, singing ID for RadiovisiÃn Cristiana (1330 NYC), so KCKN Roswell NM is currently active, and plenty to QRM KOKP Perry OK with a heavy SAH, let alone KDKA Pittsburgh PA which it is supposed to protect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
