** CHINA. Firedrake Oct 1: 1353 equally poor on 8400 and 9000 --- altho some days one is very much better than the other.
Do they keep shifting transmitters sites, azimuths, or what? At 1357 better on 10210 to fair level.
** CUBA. RHC anomaly report Oct 1: at 0554, 6140 in Spanish instead of English, perhaps due to Spanish transmitter on
6120 missing. English still on 6060, 6010, and Spanish on 6000.
13740, CRI relay in English at 1401 kiept dropping off the air, once right after asserting ``nothing but socialism``, ha2. 1402
back on at first with squeal only, then adding modulation, still hiccuping. Only the worst transmitters are reserved in Cuba
for the ChiCom comrades, but this may change soon with some newer ones being installed.
** ECUADOR. Monitored what was presumably the final broadcast of HCJB from Ecuador (except for the prolonged regional
service on 6050), UT Oct 1 on 9745; tune in around 0430 and something was being said about the finale, but nothing out of
the ordinary in the next semihour, which was the regular program `El Camino` referring to who else but JC? Mostly praise
music in Spanish, occasional announcements, including one greeting from an ALAS affiliate in Guatemala. All this was
bothered by splatter spikes from VOR Spanish via Guiana French on 9735 with an even stronger signal. Fortunately it was
off by 0459 so my recording of the HCJB QRT was less marred.
Automated ID at 0459:30 plugged the mountain peaks of Ecuador, gave frequencies as 9745 for México and 21455 for
Europa! So that frequency closed down a sesquiyear ago still survived in outdated announcements to the very end. Obviously
no one is paying attention at Quito studios, so how can they expect listeners to pay attention? Sign-off made no indication it
was the very end, but said they would be back on air at 3:30 am in Quechua, no frequency, but 6050?
0500 national anthem, one of many from Latin America I never tire of hearing; the refrain is ``gloria a ti`` which could easily be mistaken
for a religious remark rather than referring to the patria itself. Over at 0503, a few sex of open carrier, and then gone forever.
Here`s one source for lofi audio both instrumental and vocal, and linx to the lyrix, referring to Ecuador`s breast and forehead:
This one also has an English translation:
** FRANCE. RFI missing from 7265, Oct 1 at 0550. This is the frequency which had been heard with a heavy echo the past
two nights. Yet SW neighbors 7240 Portugal, 7250 Vatican, 7275 Tunisia were in with good signals, so I think RFI must really
have been off, perhaps trying to rid itself of the double audio/transmission.
** INDIA. AIR VBS, 9870, fluttery but fairly good signal, enough to enjoy the music, around 1415 UT Oct 1; still going at 1559
recheck after WRMI signed off 9955.
** INDONESIA. VOI still on 9525.9 Oct 1 at quick check 1355 before being hit by 9525.0 het de CRI prélude to Russian. In
English, and also still with sufficient modulation.
** PORTUGAL. DRM noise, 15635-15640-15645, Oct 1 at 1440, or is it Ethiopian jamming? No, DW via Sines scheduled
14-16, 90 kW at 40 degrees. ###
CHINA. Firedrake Sept 30 at 1244: poor with flutter on 8400; very much better to good level on 9000 also with some flutter.
At 1254, just barely audible on 10210, and nowhere higher.
** CUBA. 5025, R. Rebelde, at 1223-1225 Sept 30 report during Haciendo Radio show about Radio Cuba improving Rebelde
coverage in the mountains of Guantánamo province, presumably more FM and also TV relay transmitters; sounded like
Arnie Coro but apparently not.
This reminds us that Radio Cuba is in charge of all transmitter operation, no doubt including the unmentionable jammers,
spy number stations, and those used by Radio Habana Cuba, a separate agency, probably explaining the incredibly poor
communication between the two and RHC`s inability to express its own schedule accurately either in announcements or on
website. But then, it`s all owned by Castro & Castro, so what`s the difference?.
** CZECHIA [and non]. 13580, R. Praga in Spanish mentioning something about Cuba to be on this semihour, Sept 30 at
1404, but with QRM from Cuba itself, the 13780/13680 leapfrog landing on 13580, which however is always much stronger
on the upper leap, 13880.
** ECUADOR. Barely remembered to tune in 9745 at 0503 UT Sept 30, hearing last couple notes of national anthem, OC
and off. This might have been HCJB`s final broadcast on this frequency, or could come 24 hours later, when I plan to be
monitoring and taping.
The final morning broadcast on 11960 is surely today Sept 30, so I intune that too late at 1256 to hear the tail of a speech
with a heavy gringo accent in an echoey room, probably the boss in Manantiales de Colorado, about how HCJB Global
is moving into New Media; 1258 the congregation started singing HCJB`s favorite hymn, but nothing stands in the way of
automation, cut off a few sex for beam change, and faded out in time for ID at 1259:30, this one giving http://www.radiohcjb.
org ``desde el centro del mundo``, 3+1 timesignal for 1300 TUC = 8 am.
On this special occasion I monitored evey quarter hour and taped the variety of automated IDs, all giving correct frequencies
11690 and 11960.
1300 show as usual, Cruzada con Luis Palau, sermon on second of three bad things affecting LAm men: machismo, the first
being alcoolismo. I am pleased to hear machismo pronounced correctly as ignorant English-adopters tend to make it a hard k.
Says men should emulate NSJC and not cheat on their wives --- but, but, JC was allegedly a batchelor, and whatever sex
life he had was not well reported, except for the nasty rumors about Mary Magdalene.
1329:30 ID plugged Ecuador as ``el tercer exportador en el mundo de flores``, [maybe, but this table as of 1995 http://www.
shows Ecuador in 5th place with a mere 2.7% of the world market in cut flowers, while Netherlands had more than 50%]
1359:30 ID, quotation from Moody about having the Bible in your heart rather than your head or your pocket.
1400 show Gracia a Vosotros from a Grace Community Church, somewhere.
1429:30 ID faded out the BGEA address before it could finish; about 124 species of hummingbirds in Ecuador, ``el país de
los picaflores``. Interesting how the SS focus on the birds` beaksticking into flowers, rather than their sound.
1430 show, Ciudad Médica.
1444:30 ID, quotation from Albert Einstein.
1445 show, Siempre Amigas, for women, yet uses the masculine group plural in further comments.
1459:30 ID, outro theme cut off early, back on a few sex, and then plugs Ecuador as the greatest provider of cacao, which
is also its oldest product [maybe, but this table as of 2001-2002 http://www.cacaoweb.net/countries.html
shows Ecuador`s produxion is in seventh place]
Timecheck 10 am = 15 TUC, timesignal and off. Forever. The sound of silence; or rather band noise.
BTW, if VozAndes had been set up in Colombia, it might have got the callsign HJCB, leading to less cumbersome slogans
in Spanish and English.
** FRANCE [and non?]. 7265, RFI again with heavy echo at 0506 Sept 30 and whenever checked a few more times during
the hour. Longpath not an option at this hour over dayside, and nearby European signals, 7250 Vatican and 7240 Portugal
at 0537 had no such echo either.
Possibly a relay site erroneously or even deliberately is running same frequency as Issoudun, but echo level always seems
same rather than independently fading so more likely both the signals are coming out of Issoudun, double audio input or
double transmitter output, yet unsynchronized. Is anybody paying attention at the site or at Paris HQ? If it`s out of Issoudun,
the echo should be audible everywhere.
** INDIA. 9425, AIR National Channel, Bengaluru, Sept 30 at 1350, big but fluttery signal with loud but distorted Hindi talk,
even worse than WWRB 9385 or WTJC 9370.
** INDONESIA. After a sesquiweek or two of undermodulation, VOI finally jacked it up on Sept 30. Does this require major
transmitter repairs or is it must a matter of paying attention to the audio input/output level? 9525.9 at 1336 starting Music
Corner, fair signal too, but soft rock songs from the 90s(?), hardly Indonesian. We want gamelans, even in rock music! 1341
outro by YL still uncopyable and hummy. 1351 going from one song to another about friendship. 1356:30 managed to get
out www address before CRI 9525.0 carrier/het oncut. If there was anything about the latest Sumatera earthquake, must
have been in the first semihour, since it was entertainment business as usual in the second.
** ISRAEL. The wandering Jew, Galei Tsahal, on 15783.9 with music at 1410 Sept 30.
** JAPAN [non]. 16m was hopping pretty well, so checked usually dead 13m, Sept 30 at 1416 and pleasantly found NHKWRJ
in English introducing Easy Japanese lesson 50; fair and steady readable signal, less than one second ahead of 13630 via
Ramipisham UK, and only an echo apart from 11705 via Sackville, CANADA [and no echo there from Yamata direct lately].
21560 is Issoudun, FRANCE at 152 degrees; only other signal on 13m was a weak trace of Spain on 21570.
** NETHERLANDS [non]. I was expecting to hear RNW on usual 9345, but now it`s on 9350, Sept 30 at 1253 in Dutch with
``economic nieuws``, good signal. This is via IBB TINIAN, NMI, 250 kW, at 1230-1257 only, aimed 267 degrees to CIRAF
49 = Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, where there are no doubt oodles of Dutchmen, since Amsterdam is tame
compared to Bangkok.
** SAUDI ARABIA. 17895, poor and fluttery but abuzzous Qur`an, Sept 30 at 1413, i.e. BSKSA Riyadh HQS, scheduled
12-15 at 295 degrees. Someone reported this on 17900, but I doubt it.
** TURKEY. 15450, VOT fairly good as reception improves autumnally, Sept 30 at 1315 wrapping up Letterbox, mostly
music fill afterwards, but 1324 cut off closing IS before even one iteration could play.
It`s the end of September, and it dawns on me that I haven`t heard anything about a VOT essay contest this year. Normally
it runs in the spring/summer and winners are already touring Turkey by September. Was there none this year? Nothing found
on website, but here is an outdated program schedule where there used to be none at all!
I am also having trouble getting a live stream from VOT any more. Is it gone?.
** U S A. WRMI 9955 continues switching to NW antenna UT Wed & Fri at 0000-0800. Good signal at 0038 Sept 30 check
with English religionist, but plenty of jamming also audible.
On schedule as of last week later UT Wed: 0052 Viva Miami, 0100 Studio DX in Italian, 0130 World [Mexican] Baseball
Today, 0145 Acontecer Venezolano, 0200 Wire Light infomercial stuff, 0400 R. Prague, 0430 R. Praga, 0500 Wire Light,
0700 WORLD OF RADIO (from last week), 0730 Frecuencia al Día.
However, gone here by next check 0140, and no revival in further chex to 0530.
UNIDENTIFIED. 13950-13970, OTH radar pulses, presumed, Sept 30 at 1310.###
** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 29 at 1307: fair on 8400, poor on 9000.
** CUBA. RHC check Sept 29 at 0558: English service on nominal 6010, 6060, 6140, a clip of someone speaking English, but
with annoying voice-over/consecutive translation into Spanish. Outro as having been Caribbean Outlook show, announcer
named Elena Valverde.
** FRANCE [and non]. 7265, RFI in French discussion at 0551 Sept 29, with heavy quick echo, à la long/short path. Trouble
is, LP would be quite unlikely at this hour from Europe. Could be transmission problem either in audio input or running two
unsynchronized transmitters at Issoudun? Scheduled until 0600 at 185 degrees, then 204 degrees. If these are normally two
different transmitters, perhaps the second one was onturned too early.
15160 at 1328 Sept 29 with big collision causing fast subaudible heterodyne. One of them goes off at 1329* leaving the
other in Russian with guitar music, it too offgoing at 1330* leaving frequency vacant.
At 1230-1329 it`s R. Free Asia in Khmer, 73 degrees from SRI LANKA, per Aoki, while at 1300-1330 it`s RFI in Russian, 55
degrees from Issoudun. Apparently no such collision is expected within Russia or Cambodia.
** INDONESIA. RRI Makassar (ex-Ujung Pandang, ex-Makassar), Sulawesi (ex-Celebes), 4750, signal continues to improve
as Sept 29 at 1242 a string of hard-sell ads in Indonesian, 1246 song, fair over co-channel China or maybe Bangladesh. No
other Indos showing on 60m tho there were signs of activity on 75m. See also UNIDENTIFIED 3325.
9525.9, VOI, Sept 29 at 1301 opening English hour, still undermodulated but marginally readable amid flutter fading.
YL introduces perpetual Tuesday excursion as Exotic Indonesia, 1302 greetings from RRI Banjarmasin guy on phone
where it`s very hot, 35 degrees Celsius, or did he say 45? Canned sign-on as always gave three frequencies, only
one of which is in use for any single broadcast, but live announcer did the same at 1302. Do they really believe this
in Jakarta? Axually, I believe 9526v is the only one currently in use for any VOI broadcast, not 11785v or 15150. 1304
over to another YL for news from Jakarta.
** NEWFOUNDLAND. 6160, CKZN at 0555 Sept 29, discussion of viral mutations. Would this be Quirx & Quarx, on its
Monday night repeat? That`s at 11+ pm local, so no, too late for CKZN and too early for CKZU which would have it on an
hour later. And besides, no sign of host Bob McDonald. Therefore is `N with CBC Radio Overnight which per sked http://
www.cbc.ca/overnight/schedule.html would be Radio Australia after `2:30` am. There was a fast rippling SAH, just like old
times, presumably CKZU, but way underneath CKZN.
** SWEDEN. R. Sweden, which abandoned its morning audience in North America last year, still manages to be audible
despite their best efforts, on 15735, English at 1330 Sept 29 including reports on health care, with Germany and Netherlands
recommended as better models for USA than co-lingual Canada and UK; and on auxioning Ingmar Bergman`s stuff. Fair but
sufficient and steady signal tho 55 degrees from Hörby.
** U S A [non]. 15320, Sept 29 at 1326, weak YL spelling out Kowloon address in English. Scheduled as AWR via Nauen,
GERMANY, 250 kW at 70 degrees, 1300-1330 in Chinese on this weekday, Uighur on weekends. No jamming heard but
there were weak OTH radar pulses 15300-15330. Would the ChiCom at least jam the Adventist Uighur, or is that too esoteric
to bother with? Would Beijing axually prefer the Uighurs to be Adventists instead of Islamists? But if you Google adventist
hypodermics you get almost 80K hits.
UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Sept 29 at 1248 solo singing with pauses, still same tho weakening at 1258. Could not decide
whether it`s RRI Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan, or PNG. WRTH 2009 shows Radio Buka, Buka, Bougainville in
the PNG listing and Radio Bougainville, Kubu in the page 570 frequency list; while PWBR `2009` splits the difference
as Radio Bouganville [sic], Buka. Aoki shows Radio Buka as in Kieta. Well, it`s all one station, whatever you call it. And
would it be too much to ask for PNG and Indonesia to spread out their few remaining SW stations so none of them are
on the same frequency?.
UNIDENTIFIED. 9600.4, very weak het again audible Sept 29 at 1310 after RHC cleared frequency, but now I hear the
same pitch on 9500 and 9700. Lacking any confirmation that XEYU transmitter is running, it looks like this is something
of local origin, tho I am baffled as to what. Not sufficiently baffled to start unplugging each appliance one by one;
besides, it could be neighborly.
UNIDENTIFIED. 15300-15330, weak OTH radar pulses presumed, Sept 29 at 1325, bothering AWR on 15320. Could they
at least keep these out of the broadcast bands? They being presumably the Brits in Cyprus or the French near Paris.
** CANADA. Radio Canada Immigration, 9515, Monday Sept 28 at 1444 once again in wrong language contrary to its own
schedule for Russian until 1505: really Brazilian Portuguese, with French lesson for crianças, lecture about Québec folkloric
traditions with occasional French words interjected by child`s voice, closing referring to http://www.rcinet.ca for more info.
Recheck at 1452, more of same in Brazilian, except now it`s for English learning; 1457 woman telling story in English about
a Mother Canada Goose and her goslings wanting to fly south with her; of course, she lets them, rather than freeze (Canada
geese set a rather poor example, fleeing the country every fall; what`s with that?). Then some comments in English by
Sophie The Child, same one as in French?
I ask you: how many Brazilian child immigrants to Canada are likely to be listening to this on SW on a Monday morning
during schooltime, when the schedule says RCI is in Russian, anyway? And do young children really need something like
this to pick up English and French? Or are there classes everywhere set up to listen to this somehow if not on SW?
1504 English RCI ID plugging satellite and internet, no mention of SW. 1505 RCI news in English, 1510 The Link with what
else, stories skewed toward the vast immigrant audience, starting with latest court action from Vancouver in the case of
the Pole who was taser-killed by RCMP shortly after deplaning a couple years ago. At least that has led to redesigning the
terminal accomodations for immigrants. See also NEWFOUNDLAND
** CONGO DR [non]. 11690, R. Okapi via RSA, good Sept 28 at 0540 with hilife music, frequent interruptions by French
DJ. 0542 Okapi jingle and FM frequency, 0551 phone out to Red Cross guy about potable water issues. 25m was an allSouthern Hemisphere band at this time, nothing audible but this and NZ on 11670-11680, 11725. Okapi is scheduled 04-06,
so overlaps with RHCuba 11690 until 05.
** CUBA. RHC language check Sept 28 at 0607: Spanish on 6120, 6000; different musical programming on 6140, 6060,
6000, presumed English service. This matches the current website schedule, so must be the nominal setup, tho from night
to night languages and frequencies swap around or one frequency vanishes.
** FRANCE. After listening to Moscow evangelism in English (see RUSSIA) left receiver running on 15605, and just a
few minutes after 1600 Sept 28 there was secular music of some sort. Was not paying attention, but uplooked later,
this must have switched to RFI English service via Issoudun; music instead of news near hourtop signifies rolling
strike mode still in play. Mike Cooper reports that a court ruled today against RFI`s efforts to fire 206 employees,
which had brought on the strike.
** INDONESIA. VOI, still on 9525.8v transmitter, Sept 28 at 1338 but English modulation JBA, useless. Meanwhile, no such
modulation or frequency variation problems on the RRI HS 9680 relay. As usual when checked sometime during the 14 UT
hour, CRI 9525.0 in Russian made a big almost 1 kHz het with VOI.
** IRAN [non]. 17670 at 1410 Sept 28, fair signal with Queen`s ``Another One Bites the Dust``, then mostly Persian rock, in
typical Radio Farda rotation. Dust song could have unpleasantly threatening military connotations, hee hee, tho the Queen
are about machine guns and bullets rather than bombing nuclear installations. BTW, the ugly %20s in the URL simply replace
spaces in the original URL. 1423 ID in passing. This is via Wertachtal, GERMANY, on 17670 for one standard hour only.
** NEWFOUNDLAND [and non]. After a few weeks off-frequency to 6160.88 or so, and causing a terrible het to the other
CBC station and anything else on 6160.0, CKZN is back on frequency, almost: Sept 28 at 0601 good reception, no het from
only one CBC station in news. At first I figured it must be CKZU and CKZN was off, but at 0604 already into CBC Radio
Overnight and R. Prague, so it had to be CKZN per the schedule at http://www.cbc.ca/overnight/schedule.html which shows
Prague weekdays at `3:05` am, and Overnight would not have started yet anyway in the PDT zone. However, with BFO on,
stepping 5 kHz up and down from CKZN, compared to other stations, it was clearly a smidgin on the low side now by a few
dekaHz. I wonder if CKZU was really off the air at this time, as in the nightmiddle they usually are both audible, previously
with a fast SAH before the major offset hit. But around 1325 CBC audible on 6160 and at this hour must have been CKZU.
** RUSSIA. 15605, VOR at 1550 Sept 28 going from majestic orchestral waltz to ``Voice of Russia presents the Christian
Message from Moscow``, sermon on the passage ``What God has joined together, let no man put asunder``, punxuated
by a single bell now and then. 1554 sermon already over, into outro with sacred choral music, program credits. This show
is of course, a total violation of Separation of Church and State, as post-Soviet Russia overpendulums totally in the wrong
direxion. After 1600 noted some secular music running on 15605, but that must have been FRANCE, q.v.
** SAUDI ARABIA. 15435, Sawt ul-Buzz, BSKSA Arabic with modulation barely detectable under huge buzz from defective
transmitter they blithely ignore, Sept 28 at 1536. BTW, I previously mentioned hearing a very similar but weaker sound on
21735, but now I am positive that is of local origin, since it`s steady all the time, including now.
17660 at 1543 in French punxuated by birds chirping, only fair signal with flutter but thankfully abuzzous, as BSKSA is
scheduled also from Riyadh at 14-16.
** SPAIN. Yom Kippur did not stop REE from broadcasting its weekly Sephardic/Ladino show on 15385, Monday Sept
28 opening at 1427 with judeo-español talk about Y.K. How are we to take this? Pious Israeli stations close down for the
occasion. F-P signal, closing around 1453 still claiming to be on 15325.
** TAIWAN. Sept 28 at 1341 was another occasion when RTI Japanese service on 9735 added spurs putting same-pitched
hets on CRI 9730 and BBC 9740, during song in Japanese. Most other recent dates checked, including during the 13-14
open carrier hour, hetless but they keep coming back unpredictably.
** U S A. WINB had been missing from 13570, but back on strong Sept 28 at 1525 with one of 3 or 4 daily hours by convicted
sex-offending evangelist Tony Alámo, with his usual snide Biblically-based comments. WINB carrier is still slightly unstable
if checked with BFO on. At 1526 he was blown away, all too briefly, by `running-water` ute burst, as he was mocking The
Donald. Serves the creep right, but has WINB no shame?.
UNIDENTIFIED. 9620, surprisingly strong open carrier at 0556 Sept 28, rivalling REE Costa Rica 9630, but off by a minute
later. Must have been DW Rwanda, modulation ended early, supposedly scheduled in German due south until 0557.
UNIDENTIFIED. 11789.9, intruders making another showing with intermittent SSB contacts in tonal Asian language, a
later hour than previously noted, Sept 28 at 1451, and again at 1520 when there was more broadcast QRM from 11790,
something weak in Russian, listed CRI via Urümqi, East Turkistan.
UNIDENTIFIED. 15960-15985, weak OTH radar pulses presumed, Sept 28 at 1351. Nothing from E Asia making it above
12 MHz, so likely from Cyprus or France.
** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 27: at 1307, nothing on 8400, good on 9000.
** CUBA. RHC confirmed with Esperanto on 11760 at 1516 Sunday Sept 27.
** INDONESIA. VOI, 9525.9v, very undermodulated in English at 1328 Sept 27.
** VENEZUELA [non]. No sign of the Aló, Presidente show on Sunday Sept 27 between 1545 and 1745 on usual frequencies,
especially 13750 via Cuba. I guess Hugo is busy in Africa.
UNIDENTIFIED. 15867 approx., as I tuned by heard SSB at 1329 Sept 27, American accented YL saying ``contact Air
Station Sacramento``. No time to pin down frequency but I would say within 1 kHz of this; left rx on another semihour and
no further transmission heard.
** CANADA [non]. 13810, Sat Sept 26 at 1828 giving Toronto address in English to 1829*. Per HFCC this is DTK via the doomed
Jülich site; per Aoki it is Bible Voice in Somali until 1830 on weekends only via Wertachtal. Surely GERMANY, anyway.
** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 26 at 1305: poor on 8400, good on 9000.
** CUBA [and non]. Arnie Coro`s cohorts at the DentroCuban Jamming Command are at it again, disaudiblizing another
broadcast of a fellow DX program in English, WORLD OF RADIO, now scheduled Saturdays at 1330 on WRMI 9955,
nothing but jamming roar audible here Sept 26 at 1345 check. The same likely happens to another new WOR broadcast
Thursdays at 1200. On the SSE antenna, do these make it audibly to South America?
RHC anomalies Sept 26: at 1354 absent from 13680 and 13880, but present on 13760, 13780.
At 1354 RHC Spanish added 13720, as CRI 13740 relay carrier just came on producing leapfrog of 13760 over
it; trouble is, another SS was already being heard on 13720, REE Spain, per Aoki scheduled in the 13-14 hour on
weekends only, and now the mix.
At 1402, RHC also missing from 15120, while OK on 15360. A very poor signal of something else could be detected on
15120. Saudi Arabia`s Bengali service is the only thing scheduled.
11760 normally has decent modulation but Sept 26 at 1834 check I found it extremely distorted, modulation audible only at
spikes. 11800 JBA with its usual distortion but not as bad as 11760. / 11690 was best.
Next check at 2104: 11760 had improved greatly, unlike 11800 and OK on // 11770, all in Spanish, no English like the day
before. However, 11800 vanished at 2105, back on at 2112. At 2105 also found // 13790 but not 13760.
At 2110 also could hear Spanish on 17660, which had been scheduled as an English frequency along with 11760 at 20302130. 17660 was an echo apart from 11770 and the others. However, 17660 does not appear at all for any language in the
`updated` sked I analyzed in my last report, http://www.radiohc.cu/espanol/c_frecuencia/frecuencias.htm
BTW, don`t even look at equivalent pages presented in English and
French on the RHC website, obviously sesquiyears out of date showing such long-abandoned frequencies as 15230,
13660, etc., etc.
The sked presented in Spanish also claims that Esperanto is down to only two broadcasts a weekend, one of which is
Sunday 0000-0030 on 13790, and it comes before the one Sunday at 1500 on 11760. So that means UT Sunday 0000?
More likely UT Monday, as UT Sunday Sept 27 at 0009 I hear 13790 in French! French 13790 is in fact shown on the same
schedule for daily broadcasts 0000-0100 and 0130-0200, so Esperanto may not really be on then UT Monday either.
But nothing ever makes sense at RHC, which is totally incapable of matching what goes on the air with what appears
on any schedule.
** GABON [and non]. Haven`t had a decent listenable signal from Africa Numéro Un in months since the demise of 17630
and 15475, tho signs of the 9580 signal are often there, but enhanced African conditions on 31m brought it in UT Sept 26 at
0525 on 9580, F-G with music, 0527 ID as ``émettant de Libreville et de Moyabi, Gabon``.
Except for the very strong but very undermodulated REE Costa Rica on 9630, the strongest and only usable signals on 31m
at this time were 9580, DW Rwanda 9480 and CVC Zambia 9430.
** GERMANY [non]. 13860, Sept 26 at 1830, G signal with multiple vocalists in African music; it`s the middle of DW`s Hausa
** GUAM. 9805, Sept 26 at 1311 piano music, 1312 OM speaking in Japanese-sounding language, but not regular Japanese?
Strong but fluttery; 1320 to YL definitely in Japanese with hymn music on piano, off around 1330 but did not catch ID or signoff. Perhaps the OM was speaking a dialect peculiar to Japanese Adventist male evangelists? Listed as KSDA due NW in
daily 1300-1330 service.
** GUIANA FRENCH. 17870-17875-17880 DRM, Sat Sept 26 at 2111, presumed from TDF Montsinéry, the usual occupant
of this frequency as also heard yesterday tho not on current schedules; why? It must be something important for DRM to
be testing on a weekend.
** INDONESIA. VOI still on shifted frequency 9525.8 for the second day, Sept 26 at 1307 with W&M news in English,
some hum, flutter.
** SPAIN. REE opening English on 9665, Sat Sept 26 at 2101 with item about the San Sebastián film festival, fair signal.
Trouble is, this broadcast is supposed to be on 9650 Sat & Sun at 21-22, per WRTH A-09 update, Aoki and EiBi. 9665 is
the frequency scheduled for English on M-F when it is two hours earlier at 19-20. Did they get mixed up at Noblejas about
which one to use, or is this an intentional change?.
** TURKEY [and non]. 15285, Sept 26 at 1359 with VOT IS over CCI causing SAH, no doubt with ChiCom jamming and/or
BBC Mandarin via Singapore. 1400 accurate 5+1 timesignal from VOT before opening Arabic to NW Africa, and someone
else`s timesignal a few sex behind.
** U S A. WINB missing from 13570, Sat Sept 26 at 1828 check, just CODAR sweeping the frequency.
** U S A. WRMI, tho silent on 9955 weekdays 16-24 UT when there is nothing but WRN fill on the webcast, has business on
weekends, such as Sat Sept 26 at 2113, English preacher, no jamming audible. But latest WRMI schedule grid as of Sept
22 shows ``Maestro de Zion`` during this semihour, which I would expect to be in Spanish.
** U S A. Mostly-Kansas MW observations on a mini-DX pedition Saturday afternoon Sept 26 to a quiet rural location on
State Hwy 11a about halfway between US 64/81/60 junxion due N of Enid, and State Hwy 11 on the way to Wakita, Nissan
caradio tuning in 10-kHz steps only:
526 kHz, tuned to 530 kHz could hear weak beacon (weacon?), sending OJ over and over in code, which is in Olathe,
Johnson County KS near Kansas City, per the exhaustive list Bill Hepburn provides at http://www.dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm
No HAR or TIS audible on 530 itself.
690, KGGF Coffeyville KS heard closing a classic cowboy-music show at 1659 UT Sat, but no title heard. I will look it up on
the KGGF website: yeah, sure, can`t find any such site. Maybe starts at 1606. Altho the closing bit I heard had a religious
subtext, I want to check the show further, as I would put up with some of that to hear the ilk of the Sons of the Pioneers.
Axually, I heard this in Enid before going to the site, but 10 kW KGGF has broad semi-local coverage.
910 had IBOC noise at 1917 UT, which must have been coming from Wichita on 900 as there is nothing strong enough on 920;
and 890 has strong OK signal tho I think I could hear some IBOC noise under it. 2009-2010 NRC AM Log confirms that KSGL
900 Wichita does run IBOC. 250 watts daytime power. I had never noticed the IBOC from it with weaker signal inside Enid.
1000, KTOK OKC, IBOC has not been heard for a few weeks at occasional daytime chex, so I am beginning to think it is off
for good. But it used to be intermittent, so maybe I have just been lucky.
1280, semi-local KSOK Arkansas City KS missing! At 1919 check and still when back home at 2050. The website http://
www.ksokfm.com/ is very much alive, tho mostly about their FM on 95.9 with a link to 1280.
1600.2, off-frequency het I have been hearing for many months even in daytime against KUSH 1600 Cushing OK, was
stronger at the DXpedition site than at home in Enid, leading me to believe it is from a KS station rather than TX. That would
KMDO in Fort Scott, SE Kansas, 770 watts day, 35 night, both non-direxional. Some MetroPlex signals which reach Enid
OK, e.g. 700 and 1040, did not make it to the DX site.
1610, Kansas Turnpike Authority (KTA) HAR at 1912 UT with weather along the `pike from Kansas City to the OK border,
voiced by synthetic woman. They have multiple transmitters, mostly on 1610, and no doubt I was hearing the closest one at
South Haven. Sometimes have traces in Enid, but 1610 here daytimes is predominantly Great Salt Plains OK TIS. Yet the
DX site was closer to GSP than Enid is.
1660, KXTR classical music weakly audible at 1914, groundwave from Kansas City. .
** VIETNAM. 9635 at 1310 Sept 26 with roughly equal mix of Vietnamese and Spanish, so VOV-1 new frequency for the
East Sea service is now making it against CVC Miami via Chile; no sign of VOV on other NFs for that, 7435 and 11720.
UNIDENTIFIED. 9600.4, het still there Sept 26 at 2055 vs CRI Kashgar, East Turkistan on 9600.0. I think some audio was
making it from both, but too much mix to make anything out. I would settle for definite Spanish as a start, advancing my
theory that it could be XEYU.
Note: I last had two separate DX reports both dated just September 25. I normally intend to make clear in subject lines with different
dates or part II, not to be taken as resends or duplicates. This one has only one item concerning Sept 27, making it a two-dayer.
** ANTARCTICA. While LRA36 was at S9 level Sept 24 after 1800, not even a carrier detectable the next day, Sept 25 at
1802, 1830 and 2030 chex. Not much from LRA 15345 either. Nevertheless, solar flux for Sept 24 was still 75, and K index
at 1800 Sept 25 was still 0.
** BIAFRA [non]. 17520 signal just barely audible, Friday Sept 25 at 1900, presumed still V. of Biafra International via WHRI.
In order to reach as few SW listeners as possible, the website http://www.biafraland.com/vobi.htm still claims to be on
15280, Fridays at 2000, like it was briefly last year. Yet it has latest audio files.
** CUBA. RHC finally heard with half an English broadcast during the previously scheduled 2030-2130 UT hour! JBA carrier
on 17660, else? But Sept 25 at 2053 found sufficient open carrier on 11760, 2059 opening English, 2132 opening French.
Arabic was also back, on 11770 at 2053. Spanish on 11800 distorted, 13760 buried under Portugal 13755 with loud silly
ballgame and after 2100 RHC Spanish also on 11770.
Let`s look at RHC`s website schedule:
By golly, it has been modified since our last perusal, but it has taken then about two sesquimonths since major changes
were really made --- and it`s still wrong. It does not show any Arabic at all, nor any French at 2030!
However, the Spanish schedule does now account for the greatly extended hours we have been monitoring it since Junend,
filling the gaps 15-21 and 07-11 UT.
As a service to DX listeners, certainly not to the incompetent RHC itself, I herewith extract the Spanish schedule and
rearrange it into nonconfusing strict time order. This part looks fairly accurate compared to monitoring but we cannot vouch
for it 100%:
11-13 6180 NY
11-13 9600 Chi
11-15 15120 BA
11-15 15360 SAm

01-05 6000 NAm
05-07 6140 NAm
05-07 6060 NAm
05-07 6010 SF
NOTE that nothing is mentioned about any African targets, yet, as recently speculated for the 07+ period when English has
really been heard on some of the 6 MHz channels.
Esperanto which used to have a semi-dozen weekly airings is only, Sun:
00-0030 13790 RJ [does this really mean UT Sun now, or UT Mon?]
15-1530 11760 NCSAm
Beware of inaccuracies in the other languages which I won`t go into here.
** FRANCE [non]. RFI, 17620 via GUIANA FRENCH to Africa, Sept 25 at 2054 with nice jazzy/African bass music; owe we
this to the strike as fill, or, how is the strike going, still? But 2100 into French news, while always stronger and VG 17630
came on then in RFI Spanish. See also GUIANA FRENCH
** GUIANA FRENCH. DRM noise 17870-17880, Sept 25 at 2037 and still at 2121, surely TDF site which has used this range
many times before but not currently on the DRM DX schedule at http://www.drm-dx.de/
Montsinéry had registered +17875+ previously at 1300-2000 only, 320 degrees USward. It was last reported in the DRM DX fora last
May for a week when it was on for some event in Brasil at 17-21. So what bits of programming are they running now, and why?.
** ISRAEL. Songs at F-P level alternating with announcements in presumed Hebrew, measured on 15783.8, ergo the latest
variant of Galei Zahal, Sept 25 at 1733-1753. Will this one stay on the air right thru Yom Kippur, unlike IBA?.
** KOREA NORTH. 11710.0, classical piano music, 1727 UT Sept 25, later with orchestra, a concerto? Not recognized, but
sounds Western. Only thing that fits is VOK, Korean service to NAm, and confirmed at 1730 by // JBA in noise 9335.
** NIGERIA. 15120, Sept 25 at 2041 with very distorted music, undermodulated and muffled but not distorted YL ID as Voice
of Nigeria, Lagos. Signal was noticeably weaker than WYFR 15130 and much weaker than REE 15110, altho without such
neighbors and with decent modulation it would have been adequate.
** SPAIN. 17595, REE in Brazilian Portuguese hour, Sept 25 at 1803 with report about IMF mentioning Pitsburgo (Pittsburgho?).
VG signal as if it`s still aimed at NAm, tho listed as 248 degrees from Noblejas; meanwhile, REE in Spanish on 17715 was
much weaker, tho azimuth supposedly differs by only 18 degrees at 230, both 350 kW. Something seems amiss.
** SUDAN [non]. 15650, Sept 25 at 1757 rather distorted audio on F-P signal, eventually recognized as heavily accented
English; 1758 item about the national election commission in southern Sudan; 1800 music and announcement in non?
English, off at 1801* Miraya FM as scheduled 1500-1800 via IRRS via SLOVAKIA, back to Sudan. ###
BRAZIL. 4885, romantic music and Brazilian announcements between songs, presumed R. Clube do Pará, the usual 24hour dominant here, but a long time since it overcame noise level enough and CODAR, Sept 25 at 0523-0529+.
** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 25: at 1340, equally poor but audible on 8400, 9000; nothing on 10210 or other higher frequencies,
except for the usual // mix on 12040 with CNR1 and VOA.
** CUBA. Which combination of frequencies and languages will RHC be using tonight, UT Sept 25 at 0519? 6140, 6060 and
6010 in English; 6120 and 6000 in Spanish.
** INDONESIA. 4750, RRI Makassar, best heard in quite a while, Sept 25 at 1241 lively W&M dialog in Indonesian, 1242
romantic music, sufficient signal over rumble of co-channel QRM. What a pity that China and Bangladesh have to use the
same frequency when there are plenty of openings nearby.
Nothing much else audible from Indonesia on 60m, but could hear some AM talk on 3995 at 1251, marred by insensitive
SSB hams who regard broadcast stations, even RRI Kendari as nothing but a nuisance, or at best a BFO source. See also
PAPUA NEW GUINEA.
VOI with usual low modulation during English hour, Sept 25 at 1350; no het so did not bother to measure frequency as
usual 9524.9, but at 1435 a big higher-pitched het from CRI on the lo side rather than a lo het on the hi side; ergo, VOI
has switched back to the transmitter almost one kHz high. In the clear again at 1500 when I could barely outmake a www
announcement, but off at 1501* before English could really start repeating. Ron Howard measured it on 9525.88, and during
the 10 UT broadcast this same day, Chuck Bolland reported 9525.85.
** KOREA NORTH [and non]. Juche jamming noise audible on 3985, 3912 and 3480 against the S. Korean clandestines, Sept
25 at 1252. Could make out some talk too on 3912. Same type of roar less effectively against VOA Korean on 5890 at 1255.
** PAPUA NEW GUINEA [and non]. Signs of life on PNG channels, Sept 25 at 1253: 3220 and 3385 with music; something
on 3260; 3335 with off-frequency SSB QRM; 3345 sounds like two stations, the other being RRI Ternate if active? At 1301,
3220 had a song, while at 1303, 3335 sounded like news, still with SSB QRM.
** RUSSIA. 7200 at 1310 Sept 25, Russian talk vs SSB ham on exactly same frequency. Russia is also audible on 7200 as
early as 0500 now. Per Aoki this is NVK R. Sakha-R. Rossii, 100 kW non-direxional from Yakutsk at 19-15. WRTH says it`s
250 kW, which I could easily believe. HFCC says 250 kW and 45 degrees, which I could also believe, enhancing the signal
usward. Yakutsk is at 62 north, 130 east. Sunset there today was 0909 UT per
7200 is supposed to be off-limits for broadcasters as the boundary frequency between ham and BC bands now in Regions
1 and 3, but Aoki also shows Malaysia/Sarawak and Myanmar on 7200 --- is either really active on 7200? As well as further
west, Iran and Sudan.
15510 playing songs in Italian by an OM singer with an American accent, Sept 25 at 1348 and 1355; one lyric was ``non é un'altra
donna``. What`s this? Certainly not Rai or SRI Switzerland, the Italian native-language countries which abandoned SW long ago.
What else but the VOR Pashto/Dari service, as in Aoki at 12-14, 250 kW, 110 degrees from Krasnodar, RUSSIA as also revealed
by VOR IS at 1359, smooth transition at 1400 to DW, 500 kW, 76 degrees via Rampisham, UK in Russian with Novosti.
** U S A. Further chex of WRMI 9955 on the UT Friday Sept 25 NW antenna test (see previous report) did not turn up any
audible signal between 0400 and 0530 when I upgave. Happy Station has another new time on the schedule, Friday 1300,
but just as I expected, at 1339 nothing but DentroCuban jamming audible then when WRMI is on the SSE antenna.
UNIDENTIFIED. 5000+, Sept 25 at 1246 noticed different-pitched timesignals slightly on hi side of strong WWV, definitely
not on the lo side; WWVH much weaker but also audible. The pips were slightly unsynchronized with WWV; minute markers
were also distinctly pitched compared to WWV/H; listened carefully past 1300 including during WWV voice announcements
just before minutetops, but never heard any voice (or code) IDs from this.
Propagationally, BPM in Xi`an, China most likely, but supposedly on standard frequency too of 5000.0; Taiwan, South Korea
and India are not all active on 5000, if any of them are. One reference is http://www.dxinfocentre.com/time.htm but it`s not
up-to-date enough to include PPE in Brasil on 10000.
UNIDENTIFIED. 5785-5835, weak OTH radar pulses covering this range, presumably from China, Sept 25 at 1256.
UNIDENTIFIED. 9600.4, very weak carrier detectable as het to 9600.0, Sept 25 at 0514, XEYU? But I also heard het of
exactly same pitch on 9700 against presumed DW Rwanda, don`t know whether above or below.
Quite a coincidence, raising question whether it is something of local origin, such as a long-forgotten almost-100 kHz crystal
oscillator? But my HQ-160 is long gone, sob. If so, should appear every 100 kHz, but no sign of anything like that around
9500 or 9800. And anyway, harmonix of 100 kHz if slightly off-frequency would not be precisely 100 kHz apart so the het
pitches would differ slightly. ###
** ALBANIA. Tuned in R. Tirana 13640 in English, just in time to hear them saying goodbye and brief theme music at 20262027* Sept 21, but not before I read the S-meter at 9+20, no QRM or QRN.
** BHUTAN. 6035 in unrecognizable language, Sept 22 at 1318, bits of music, and too weak by 1330, tentatively BBS. On
same channel is PBS Yunnan, Kunming, a.k.a. Voice of Shangri-La, but the latter puts out spurs on 6028 and 6043, and I
could detect no trace of those. 1400 English for Bhutan is too late here until possibly in winter.
** CUBA. RHC is sometimes JBA on 17660, but Sept 21 before and after 2100 it was very good in Spanish instead of
RHC leads the way with another groundbreaking innovation: three transmitters within 10 kHz! Sept 22 at 0547 I found 6060 missing,
but instead on new 6006 in English, big signal like // 6010 and of course making a big het unless you tuned to one side or the other.
Furthermore, much weaker RHC Spanish was still on 6000. 6006 must be punch-up transposition error instead of 6060 and apparently
also from same site on 6006 and 6010 as they were exactly synchronized. English also on 6140, Spanish also on 6120.
If RHC stix to 6006 it will be bad news for BBCWS in English and its would-be listeners, 0300-0700 via Ascension, also
0200-0300 via Seychelles, per Aoki. Noel Green in England also heard Habana on 6006, hetting BBC.
** HONDURAS. Things are heating up again, with the return of Zelaya to the Brazilian embassy, so how about some hot
news direct from the country? Ha! 3250, presumed Radio Luz y Vida, just playing music around 1140 Sept 22. The gospel
huxters probably want to stay out of the fray, and never dealt with real-world news anyway.
** INDONESIA. 9524.9, VOI, Sept 22 at 1335 with distinctive voice of guy from RRI Banjarmasin via phoneline, also at 1352
saying bye2 at end of script but then continuing to converse with Jak YL host. G signal but with flutter, undermodulated and
hum. Another regular Tuesday co-produxion.
** JAPAN. R. Nikkei has different language lessons around 1300 UT; Tuesday Sept 22 at 1306 on 6055 was hearing lecture
in Japanese explaining various phrases in German such as ``Die Frauen sind selbst-ständingen geworden``.
** MALAYSIA. 6049.6v, Sept 22 at 1314 pop music vocoder-altered, 1315 announcement, lite het from 6050, presumably
remnant of HCJB. This off-frequency is Radio Asyik FM via RTM as often reported by Ron Howard, CA, but seldom audible
here. Still detectable at 1348.
** NIGERIA. VON, 15120, Sept 21 at 2010 in English about the end of Ramadan; clear modulation but not enough of it and
signal also significantly weaker than neighbors Spain 15110, WYFR 15130, which would occasionally splash spikes onto
15120 that Nigeria was unable to offward.
** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. Abatement of my neighborhood line noise was short-lived, again bothering the higher bands, but
not so much 90m, and several PNG signals audible Sept 22:
3385 was best at first check 1143 with island music, clear of any TADIL-A ute QRM. 1223 choral music, then talk in Pidgin.
No IDs heard from any of these, but surely R. East New Britain.
3335 was second best at 1143 but exceeded 3385 at 1228 with instrumental music; at 1253, 3335 better than 3260, vocal
music running past 1300. R. East Sepik.
3260 at 1228 with ``All of Me`` by Skeeter Davis, 1230 talk; 1235-1252 chanting and drumming reminiscent of native
American. R. Madang.
** PERU. 9720, Sept 22 at 0520 chanting, at first thought Tunisia, but not at this hour and not // 7275. Listening more closely,
includes glorias and alleluias --- so it`s Radio Victoria with wacky evangelist David Miranda. Haven`t heard this frequency
in longtime, as WYFR normally dominates from 9715, but no sign of it tonight, as `skip was long`. While the 31m channel
which used to be off-frequency is now on-, 9720.0, the 49m channel still puts a big het on CRI 6020, as it did at this time,
but enough signal from Perú to // it.
** U S A [and non]. The IBB Greenville DRM test prompted by HCJB is still ongoing, as DRM buzz reading S6 to S9+5
audible 15470-15475-15480 at 2009 Sept 21. No trace of LRA36 now, nor at earlier check 1905 when it would have been
unimpeded, even by my hi local noise level which for reasons unknown, like some neighbor unplugging a touch lamp? had
abated, while large band of T-storms from mid-MO to central OK made heavy almost continuous electrical noise as crashes
overlapped on lower bands, especially MW. Not much of a het on 15345v either.
** U S A. WRMI, 9955, Tue Sept 22 at 1153, AWR Wavescan with Bangladesh DX report, Mr Dolar spelling out contact
info, then Jeff White with some music of the world, fair signal on SSE antenna, clear of jamming --- until 1158 when the
DentroCuban Jamming Command cut on, completely blocking WRMI, as if they were expecting Radio Cuba Libre still to be
airing at 12-14. The latest program grid dated Sept 12 instead shows R. Prague/Praga.
Checked the webcast at 1355 and instead heard Frecuencia al Día with concluding item this week, report originally from
Univisión about a radio station in Washington state that broadcasts in Mexican Indian languages. So are other DX programs
axually appearing weekdays in the 12-14 UT block before WRMI becomes audible again on NW antenna from 1400 with
yesterday`s R. Prague program in English? The grid does show some variations on weekends, a new broadcast of WORLD
OF RADIO Saturdays at 1330; Wavescan Saturdays 1300; Frecuencia al Día Sundays at 1300.
UNIDENTIFIED. 7887.0 at 2018 Monday Sept 21, 5-digit YL Spanish spy number groups with some hum and very weak
Morse code audible in background. Tried to recognize a `DE CLA` ID but too much voice modulation, on huge S9+20 signal,
the strongest by far of anything below 9385, and nothing like it on 7 MHz, with CHU 7850 and WBCQ 7415 pipsqueax by
comparison. Cuban spies in the USA must use very insensitive SW radios requiring such RHC-level 250+ kW transmitters
for this. Did not notice exactly when the final, final came, but open carrier stayed running long afterwards, off at 2047*.
