Logs
** ANGUILLA [and non]. 11775, Sept 24 at 2014, PMS is back, first time heard since Hurricane Irma. S7 with good modulation. But night frequency 6090 still missing Sept 25 at 0222 check; 0255, now on with open carrier. 11775 gone again at 1407 Sept 25, audiblizing VP carrier no doubt AIR GOA scheduled 1200-1430 in Tibetan, Nepali (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sept 24 at 2100, REE is gone again, inaudible not only here but no 17715, 15520; however, a very poor distorted signal on 15390, only one on air? Hardly any sigs on 19m now, except big OC on 15730 before Greenville turns off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Sept 24 at 2014, WRMI with song not // BS frequencies, presumably still R. Prague English relay during their Sunday music show. As of Sept 25, the WRMI 9955 skedgrid at
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMI9955
still claims it`s nothing but Overcomer Ministry 7-daily at +2000-2100, but for the past several days we`ve been hearing a strip of other programming. At 2055 it`s Roberto Scaglione in Italian, so Sunday at 2030 would be `Studio DX`. At 2030 there could be more DX program repeats, only to be revealed by monitoring each day.

11580, Sunday September 24 at 2015, Jeff White is intentionally recording and reporting from Qatar about media, where Al Jazeera is a local TV station, // stronger 9455; this is a `Viva Miami` slot, no doubt with many more chances to hear it. At 2055, beeps from Kim`s `Shortwave Radiogram` as scheduled from 2030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 14336-USB, Sept 24 at 2106, nothing on HWN 14325 frequency but I find a ham here, repeatedly IDing as ``Frontier Red Willow``, asking for relays, but don`t catch real callsign; some strange net? Search correlates those names to:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Willow_Dam
``Red Willow Dam (National ID # NE01076) is a dam in Frontier County, Nebraska, about ten miles northwest of McCook``. I suppose this is a county-working contest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1896 monitoring: confirmed Sunday September 24 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.8v-USB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday Sept 25 after 0300 on Area 51 webcast (and 5130.3v-AM WBCQ was also confirmed on a few minutes earlier); also confirmed UT Mon Sept 25 after 0330 on WRMI webcast (and also 9955 in well checked half a sesquihour earlier). Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 15430, Sept 25 at 1359, DW is cutting on and off, during a site/beam change? No, it`s supposed to be merely a language change from Dari to Pashto, 250 kW, 335 degrees from Trincomalee, SRI LANKA. One of the best signals on band, but far less than Cublaster 15370. Anyhow, during DW breaks until it stay on at 1401 with Merkel victory news rating S9+10/20, I am also hearing INTRUDERS, 2-way in Spanish on 15430-USB, who seem unconcerned about the TRM QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1531 UT September 25

Sunday, September 24 2017

Logs
** BRAZIL. 9664.77, Sept 24 at 0030, R. Voz MissionÃria, Camborià SC, has been knocked down below 9665 after a while almost attaining 9666, music and Brazuguese talk at S5, as measured on the JRC. Recheck at 0523 on the Icom, now I get 9664.790 during music, sermon, S2-S3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 1180, Sept 24 at 0045, vs sports station, Omaha? and KFAQ IBOC, music here is // 5025 Rebelde, but still can`t detect any talk in the mix // 7365 Radio MartÃ.

I am reliably informed that the R. Martà facility at Vaca Key survived
the recent atmospheric events with only minor damage, although not on
air as yet, but reportedly will be shortly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 24 at 0042, R. Progreso is back on at S9, but a great deal weaker than 5025, R. Rebelde at S9+35. NDXC says 4765 is 50 kW ND from Bejucal, while 5025 is 100 kW ND from Bauta (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CZECHIA [non]. 9955, Sat Sept 23 at 2000, poor signal as this WRMI goes from BS & ID to R. Prague in English, once again for at least the second day in a row at this secret time still shown on skedgrid as BS until 2100 (previous reports were filed under USA: WRMI). So RP at 20 could be 6 or even 7 days a week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 3925, Sunday September 24 at 1229, Radio Nikkei 1 is S9 in Japanese, back on air after some absence, and still better here than // 6055 or 9595; 1233 overlapping conversations, language lesson? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 770, Sept 24 at 1222, Suprema Corte de Justicia mandatory federal PSA, earthquake relief PSA, ``Grupo ChÃvez Radio``, loops SW and 1225 rock music, so that makes it XEREV Los Mochis, Sinaloa. Best XE signal holding up this late, our sunrise just now at 1221 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Sept 24 at 0018, Mighty KBC via GERMANY is S9+10/20, best yet on the third week of this new frequency; 0100 into `Giant Jukebox` half with Uncle Eric (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15390, Sept 23 at 2003, REE still on all four frequencies, this one weaker than // 15520 than // 17715 than // 17855, but 15390 is strong enough now to tell, as wb has been complaining, that the modulation is distorted and the carrier also wobbling, during a silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1896 monitoring: confirmed Saturday September 23 at 2230 on WBCQ 9330.00v-CUSB, fair-good. Also confirmed Sat Sept 23 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, very good. Not confirmed UT Sun Sept 24 at 0200 on WRMI 11580, since it`s a JBA carrier, but later discovered the R75 preamp 2 was not engaged (as I usually turn it off for MW tuning); 0229 recheck just too late to hear WOR end, but poorly audible. Also confirmed UT Sunday Sept 24 at 0330 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, fair at Somaliland item 19 minutes in, so started circa 0311.

Ivo Ivanov reports: GERMANY, World of Radio #1896 via Hamburger Lokalradio 9485-CUSB, Sept 24
1030-1100 on 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, very weak
signalhttp://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2017/09/world-of-radio1896-via-hamburger.html

Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3250, UT Sun Sept 24 at 0020 check, no signal from this WBCQ; seems it is running, sometimes, only on UT Sats during `Allan Weiner Worldwide` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Sept 24 at 1320, logs from some donwunderite, during secret Sunday 1300 airing of `Wavescan` on WRMI, not only here but also // on JBA 7780, all of which weekdays emit `The Power Hour` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5072.1 & 5097.9, UT Sun Sept 24 at 0135, WTWW-2 as always parasitic spurs much weaker but unmistakable, from 5085 fundamental, with `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` still running late, after still no 9930 transmission at 1800 or anytime in afternoon. 5085 still running at 0517 with C&W music (but most nights, not) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1310, Sept 24 at 0049 UT, Hilltopper Sports Network, ad for TNN(?) Mobile; interview with guy from US Bank supporting this game and United Way, before kickoff, mentions Mandalay (?) Bay, then clinched by ``southern Kentucky``, ``Hilltoppers`` team, ``Bowling Green area `` mentions; so it must be WTTL Madisonville, which is west of B.G., rather than the other KY in the far east. WTTL: 1500/40 watts U1 even tho it`s after sunset, breaking format from ``Classic Hits 103.5`` translator. The Hilltoppers are at WKU in Bowling Green (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540, Sept 24 at 0054 UT, UNI Panthers volleyball, pizza ad, other local ads, ``on the Panthers Sports Network``, dominating frequency is KXEL Waterloo IA as if it`s on 50 kW ND day pattern rather than night with a null to the south. Official September sunset was 0015 UT (October: 2330). Volleyball?! Imagine that; must not have been any football game they could diffuse this Saturday night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Sept 23 at 1956, again no carrier detectable from ZBC; nor RTM Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 24 at 1206-1215: 774 from NW, 702 from WSW = two making a beat, 594 from WSW, 756 from WSW, 828 both WSW and NW i.e. can`t get a null, 1098 west, 1512 WSW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Sept 24 at 0046 UT something in Spanish here with romantic music, rough DF ENE/WSW, avoiding KWKH game. Two Mexicans at that angle are XEHN Nogales, IRCA-listed as talk, and XEMOS Los Mochis, Ãxtasis Digital. Those fit better than any SS 1130 in NRC AM Log, in CA, GA, TN, TX. However, our sunset was only 0026 UT, so probably too early for the NW Mexicans. How about WYXE Gallatin (Nashville) TN, 2.3 kW daytimer, religious? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6925-LSB, Sept 24 at 0037, 2-way in language, expecting Spanish but don`t recognize words, maybe Greek. I log this in the absence of any North American pirates on the band.

6925 is worth checking for S Americans: Claudio Galaz, Chile, reported RCW (Radio CompaÃÃa Worldwide) on 6925, Sept 19 at 2301-2340 about the Mexican quake; also heard earlier in his afternoon testing on 7565, and unID music pirate on 6970. He does not specify if any of these were not in AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11802.0-USB, Sept 24 at 0035, S2 INTRUDERS, 2-way in colloquial Spanish, laughter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
