[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs March 21-22-23, 2017

** ANGUILLA. 6090, March 22 at 0235, no signal from TUN/CB/DGS/PMS, what a relief; but not for long, back on by 0352 recheck, usual severe modulation distortion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 6180, March 22 at 0235, RNA/RNB is totally missing for the second night, also not on 11780 at 0240 check. And third night absent from both, no 6180 March 23 at 0310, not 11780 at 0322 check. So what`s wrong this time at Parque Rodeador? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1870, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11815.03, March 22 at 0402, no 11780, but here must be R?dio Brasil Central, S5 with Brazuguese talk. I think this one must have been inactive for a while, not hit in numerous bandscans. Also JBA carrier at 0322 March 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6060, March 22 at 0236, no signal from this RHC, but a very poor carrier on the lo side, presumably Brazil. 6165 is on in English but poor; 6000 is good.
5010 & 5055, March 22 at 0349, leapfrog mixing products between 5040 RHC and 5025 Rebelde are quite audible, so must be from same site; I still see some reporting with listed sites on the fundamentals as different (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 9790, March 22 at 0358, CRI English with end-of-hour-disposable-filler Chinese lesson, back up to S9+50 level, vs JBA the night before; March 23 after 0300 I notice that the still bigsig is very undermodulated, and with noisy spurblobs about plus and minus 10 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11880, March 22 at 2156, RHC is in Spanish, not English; unchecked between 22 and 23, but at 2350 it`s in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 7615, March 23 at 0306, Station YHWH is S9 with usual somewhat suppressed modulation, about the false rapture theory of Christians, still past 0314. Walt Salmaniw, BC, heard YHWH crash-start at *0302 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 7315, March 22 at 0356, huge collision between WHRI and equally strong R. Tamazuj via VATICAN. WHRI usage varies, but registered available in B16 from 2300 to 1300 except for 0400-0430. Soon should be resolved, for in A17, same service via SMG moves to 9600 per HFCC, while WHRI may stay on 7315 at least until 0400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** UKRAINE [non]. 11580, Wed March 22 at 1336, RUI via WRMI with war stats for March 15, so a week-old show, i.e. 106 Russian attacks on eastern Ukraine, resulting in injuries to 7 Ukrainian soldiers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1869 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday March 21 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, fair; JBA carrier on 6855, presumably //. Also confirmed Tue Mar 21 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, JBA. Also confirmed Wednesday March 22 at 1328 the 1315.5 WRMI broadcast on 9955, poor at S5-S7, and JBA // 6855, vs S9 noise level. Also confirmed Wed Mar 22 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490, fair. Also confirmed Wed Mar 22 at 2350 the 2330 broadcast on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, good.

** CANADA. 15034-USB, March 20 at 2156, CHR, Trenton Military`s own clock is *still* 61 minutes slow, despite the shift to DST March 12. Announces current time as ``2055`` and then goes on to aviation weather conditions from Cold Lake timestamped ``2100 zulu`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15370, March 20 at 2155, RHC in Spanish music // 13740, 11840, etc., and 17730 is not heard. I am trying to locate the third airing of the weekly Sunday Esperanto semihour. Which until the DST change had been at 2130 on 15370, a few weeks before having moved from 2230 on 17730, bumping what would otherwise be a daily French service. But unfound before 2200; how about after 2230? I start monitoring again at 2226 when the ``18-minute`` (before it`s time for En Contacto to start by 2244) Filatelia show is starting on 15370, 13740, 11760, 9710, 9535-vs MWV Chinese. No Esperanto then either. So when & where is it??
11880, however, is S9 of open carrier/dead air at 2206, and still so past 2230; finally in English after 2300. That would have been a convenient place to stick in Esperanto at 2230. Different next day; read on.
While I`m at it, circa 2230 UT March 19, with two receivers, I compare which frequencies are making an echo against 15370: 15230 (but which goes into Portuguese by 2233), 9710 and 9535, indicating they are from a different site. The others mentioned above are synchronized with 15370, i.e. from same site it is (Bejucal or Bauta or Quivic?n, but which is which? Listings are not necessarily etched in stone, nor non-contradictory. Only Arnie knows for sure and he isn`t saying.)
6000, UT Monday March 20 at 0640, RHC with Arnie on `DXers Unlimited` talking about how we have zero sunspots lately, plugging his favorite T2FD antenna for SW, much like he was doing in Spanish on `En Contacto`.
You never know how the 4 or 5 English frequencies will compare from one night to the next. Tonight, both 6000 & 6100 are very undermodulated, compensated by 6060 being over-modulated! And 6165 is VG, loud and clear, much like 6100 has usually been; did they swap transmitters? 5040 is off.
11880, Monday March 21 at 2200 tune-in, RHC is *ending* the English broadcast. Have they really moved it to start at 2100 so this has been running for an hour; or a miscue? Instead of or in addition to English at 23-24? 2201 opening French at a temperature of 24 degrees, but no kHz, instead of dead air this hour yesterday; and at 2250 check in Portuguese, presumably from 2230.
It seems that RHC does not dare to announce frequencies within each language broadcast, since they risk being outdated or totally wrong due to mixups! Except Esperanto, where indeed they are all wrong. Not even in Spanish have I heard one, but maybe just missed, as they used to do so, not completely correctly, at major frequency changeover times. We never hear them in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 9690 // 15500 // 15390, March 20 at 2155, REE is frequently announcing its new schedule effective March 26, including now:
M-F 18-22 to
West Africa/South Atlantic on 15390
South America on 17715
North America on 17855
Indian Ocean/Middle East/?? somewhere else on 15520
Sat & Sun 14-18 to
West Africa/South Atlantic on 21620
Sat & Sun 18-22 to
West Africa/South Atlantic on 15390
Sat & Sun 18-22 to
South America on 17715
North America on 17855
Indian Ocean/Middle East/?? somewhere else on 15520
Note 15520 replaces 15500, altho both have been registered for A-17.
That`s a cumbersome way to organize it, but they always do so. Announcement not found on a fourth frequency, 11685, reminding us that at any given time, one or even two of the four frequencies may be AWOL. 17855 was generally very good for us all day last summer, so let`s hope despite minimal solar activity that will yet continue (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1869 monitoring: confirmed Sunday March 19 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB. Also confirmed UT Monday March 20 from 0301 on Area 51 webcast, and on WBCQ 5129.8-AM, poor at 0329 before finished. Also confirmed on WRMI 9955 webcast, UT Monday March 20 at 0345, after only a JBA carrier was audible at 0330 on 9955. Also confirmed Monday March 20 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Tuesday March 21 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, very good. Next:
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395, Sunday March 20 at 2325, this WRMI is playing end of `Wavescan`, same episode from 2300 as on 9395 earlier today after 1300. Two more to be added to the DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS schedule (but will they stick, week after week, without any published schedule?)
6855, Sunday March 19 at 2328, `In Christ We Live` seems to be program title, at closing? No full schedule for this frequency, nor is it shown on any other frequency at this or any time, but it is one of the shows listed on WRMI`s Programming page, as from Niagara Falls NY/St David`s Ont., without any time details.
5850 & 7730, Monday March 20 around 0630, jazz music with drumming, audience. Not `Jazz from the Left`, but now on sked for UT Monday 06-07 is something called `Teachers Corner`. (6855 is not // but Qur`an instead). It is found on the 9955 schedule for Monday 21-22, already replacing `Noches con Mirka`, but she remains on Wed & Fri during that hour. `Teachers Corner` is now also listed for Mon 21-22 on 15770, Mon 22-23 on 5950 (which is usually also on 11580, 6855?)
But what is it really about? Not jazz music, it seems, so maybe what I heard was not really it? There is this long writeup about it at the bottom of the Programming page, probably meaning it`s the latest addition:
``"Teachers Corner" actually started for me in 1975. No kidding! I was a thirteen year old interested in radio and communication. I listened to a lot of shortwave broadcasts from an old radio my father bought for me. Voice of America, Radio Moscow, Radio France International, etc, etc, etc, filled my log book. I guess it filled a fascination with traveling and far away places, at the time. Not to mention a mail box full of QSL cards! Well, the fascination turned into a hobby (Amateur Radio ? WB9WNW) and by the time I was sixteen years old turned into an enlistment into the military (United States Navy ? Cryptography).
My dreams of far away places turned into reality and by the old age of twenty five I had visited and or lived in 16 countries. A big constant in all the travel and meeting different people from different cultures was International Broadcasting. I enjoyed listening to the differing opinions and presentations of the radio personalities and the landscape they painted over the radio.
Sometime later in my life, I met a very interesting man from the city where I am home based (Raleigh, North Carolina). He explained that he was an International TEFL Teacher. He told me that he was teaching English in Austria and had a very rewarding career.
I was immediately interested and wondered if such a career would work for me. Teaching, travel and new experiences were the key to my interest in this TEFL stuff. It is a great fit. After being TEFL Certified in 2010 I have taught extensively in the Czech Republic (Pardubice) and China (Zhujian Province). Teaching young learners through adult age students brought me great satisfaction and enjoyment.
I really wanted to tie this occupation of TEFL Teaching and Shortwave Broadcasting together. While I was in China, I thought of a SW Program dedicated to International Teachers and Educators for entertainment and informational reasons. I really did not recognize any stations doing this type of format or programming. International Teachers and Educators can be somewhat isolated in their locations and an open medium that reaches out to them, wherever they may be, seems helpful and appropriate.
"Teachers Corner" can be a place for active listeners to be a part of a larger community than they currently know exists. Worldwide listeners active in Education and Teaching can share and exchange information from their personal experiences and knowledge as well as appreciate the entertainment value. Hopefully the concept and production of "Teachers Corner" will garnish [sic] enough interest to keep the program "On The Air" and be of benefit to all listeners, wherever they may be. Timothy Cordray / Teachers Corner
You can hear Teachers Corner on WRMI at the following times and frequencies:
* 0600-0700 UT Monday on 7730 kHz to Mexico, the Pacific and the Southwestern US
* 5:00-6:00 pm ET Monday on 9955 kHz to South America (this is 2100-2200 UT Monday until Nov. 2017)
* 2100-2200 UT Monday on 11580 kHz to Europe, Middle East, North Africa and the Eastern US [cf shown on grid as 15770 instead --- gh]
* 2200-2300 UT Monday on 5950 kHz to the Caribbean and South America``
I still ask, teaching what? English? Cryptography? Jazz? He doesn`t spell it out, but I guess TEFL means Teaching English as Foreign Language (only). Can you do that without learning the local language?
11580, March 20 at 2250 check, WRMI music sounds ``new age``, so strongly suspect Fred Moe`s `Christian New Age Radio` is still getting bonus repeats of its second broadcast from November, every Monday during this unscheduled semihour which also may be // 5950, even 6855, but too weaks to tell. Oops, `Teachers Corner` is supposed to be on 5950 now, as just above (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7200-LSB, March 20 at 2211, chicken cackling and rooster crowing, mixed with strumming music, a jhammer no doubt against some net, and then they all go silent for a bit. Perhaps such nonsense was also being referred to in this commentary Mike Terry forwarded, WTFK?
"SHOCKED AT WHAT I HEAR ON HF"
Bryan Beam (W4HLD) on February 16, 2017
http://www.eham.net/articles/38315
HF? Is he implying everything`s much nicer on VHF? Why? Also, I wonder
if CW ops bother to swear as much?
7210-LSB also checked at 2213 March 20, but some QSO in English rather than N1NR in Spanish with Cuban jhamming (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11435-USB & 11415-USB, March 20 at 1337 pileups on both by presumed Indonesian QSO pirates. On 11435, one of them is shouting ``radio`` ---- something over and over, maybe an ``ID``, but can`t understand the following word (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

  REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE :
  The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
  (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
  Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
  benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
  and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
  dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
  new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
  which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

VQ917, CHAGOS ISLANDS. Jim, ND9M (VQ96JC), from Diego Garcia Island
(AF-006) informs OPDX on March 14th, "Well, the local licensing office
came through for me again. The VQ917JC license I asked for just came
through here this afternoon." So start looking for Jim to be on the air
signing as VQ917JC. Jim told OPDX he will not make an effort on 60m at
this time. His operating hours are still limited to 1200-1600z max which
doesn't do much good for the NA/SA ops. He states that he will probably
focus on 30, 20, and 17 meters just to get VQ9 into some logs. Jim also
mentioned he did bring his satellite equipment. QSL via his home call-
sign. Look for more details to be forthcoming.

XO1, CANADA. Members of the Canam Contest Club will be active as XO1X
from Whitehorse, Yukon, throughout the year of 2017, celebrating Canada's
150th anniversary/birthday. Next big operation will take place between
March 25-27th during the CQWW WPX SSB Contest (as well as the CW WPX).
Operators mentioned are Gerry/VE1RM, Cary/VE4EA and Gene/KB7Q. QSL via
KC1CWF.

XW, LAOS. Bruce, 3W3B (HS0ZCY/XU7ADF/XW1B/AA4XR), who lives in Da Nang,
will once again be active as XW4XR from Vientiane between April 12-26th,
2017. Activity will be on 80-10 meters using CW, RTTY and JT65. QSL via
E21EIC and LoTW.

Z6, KOSOVO. The Kosovo Amateur Radio Association (SHRAK) will be active
as Z60A during the the coming CQWW WPX SSB Contest (March 25-26th). Pekka,
OH2YY, will operate this station as a Single-Op/All-Band/High-Power entry.

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs March 18, 2017

** BRAZIL. 6162, March 18 at 0621, a spur blob around here is showing up again, presumably from 6180 RNA/RNB which on fundamental is getting more distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BURUNDI [non]. 15420, Saturday March 18 at 1800 tune-in, Radio Itahuka ID right away and talk in presumed Kirundi, only S5-S9 (but good modulation this week instead of little or no mod the last two weeks; BTW, my last week`s report said ``Saturday March 12`` but it was really March 11!) Via MADAGASCAR also aimed USward, again one of the best signals on 19m band. Recheck again just before closing, still talking at 1859 and again chopped off without any closing at 1859:55*. This takes the place of the defunct Radio Munansi for Uganda on 15240 via WWRB during same timespan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, March 18 at 0623 check of RHC English frequencies: this one is suptorted; 6060 is better; 6100 is very good modulation and strength; 6165 is undermodulated but not distorted; 5040 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 15140, March 18 at 1648, my BST-1 caradio memory scan stops here for something in Russian, good signal but deep fades. 15140 is in the bank for RHC later in the day, but now it`s got to be All India Radio, Delhi-Khampur site as scheduled in Russian at 1600-1715, 250 kW, 312 degrees per HFCC, but not really starting until 1615 per Aoki (and totally missing from EiBi!). 1701 into news mentioning Bangladesh, but exotic S Asian song already at 1703. No jamming or DRM. And NO sign of Oman which is supposedly on 15140 all day in Arabic, (after 14-15 English) but has been quite sporadic lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN. 13720, March 18 at 1810, Chinese singing at S6; the SSOBOONA (strongest signal on band outside of North America = 13820 & 13845). Figure it will look up to CNR1 and/or RFA to be jammed, but not so in HFCC, Eibi, Aoki. Only listee is NHK in Japanese to South America, 85 degrees, 300 kW direct at 1655-1900 (Saudi is also supposed to be on here after 1800).
This reminds me of an unID by Mark Taylor, WI in the NASWA Flashsheet at a much earlier hour on 13720, March 12 at 1325, ``traditional Chinese vocal song``, which didn`t match listings either. Maybe there really is something new and Chinese here (Glenn hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. 5995, Saturday March 18 at *1259, RNZI sign on with Bell Bird, good signal at first; having just announced on poor 9700 that we should retune to 5995. So contrary to their own website schedule I quoted earlier and on WORLD OF RADIO 1869, they are NOT using 7355 still after 1300 on Saturdays only. So now I have another look at
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/listen
UT Sat March 18 at 1938 and it now has been corrected/changed to show:
12:59 - 17:58 5995 AM Pacific Sat
12:59 - 16:50 5995 AM Pacific Sun-Fri
RNZ news item at 1306 is another story about threats to the Tonga Broadcasting Commission (A3Z 1017 kHz + and FM network, including RNZI relays). Here are two more on the website since the last one I linked:
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/326712/pacific-watchdog-says-pohiva-should-remember-roots
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/326754/tongan-noble-says-pm-plans-are-unconstitutional
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15770, March 18 at 1834, WRMIBS is back on the air after absence yesterday, usual poor signal off the side here; oops! dumps off the air at 1837*, so still having problems.
Before then I noticed that there was some crackling as heard on AM, and quick carrier cuts or shifts as I listened with BFO, comparing it to much stronger 15710 WHRIBS, where the same thing was happening but much more severely. You risk ruining your transmitters by plugging in that horrible quality feed from Walterboro, and here I am just speaking technically. My receiver? Not happening on other nearby signals like 15500 & 15390 Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395, March 18 at 1847, Oldies on WRMI is just too weak at S3 to enjoy the music, Blue Velvet at the moment, interspersed with Bob Biermann announcements. Should put this on 13 MHz daytime for better coverage further if not closer. Maybe 9395 is stronger at prime single hop skip distance from Okee halfway to here, like the Tennesseeans on 9 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9930, Saturday March 18 at 1801, no signal from WTWW-2 for `Theater Organ/Ozarx`, and still none at 1820, but 9475 WTWW-1 is on with a ham show; nor on was WTWW-3, 12105. Staying on local time, all programs should have shifted an hour earlier, TOO to 1800 instead of 1900, but not rechecked then.
12160, Sat March 18 until 1730, WWCR`s `Talking Machine Show` which ought to be called `Singing Machine Show` has indeed shifted one real UT hour earlier not to 1700, and manages to penetrate into a restaurant on the G8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15555-USB, March 18 at 1805, WJHR gospel huxter barely audible at S3 vs noise level of S2, just to confirm it still exists and is active today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12040-12075, March 18 at 1812, 12050 WEWN is splattering across this range, while fundamental is distorted during Spanish translation of prayer in English. Mother doesn`t care. Little comfort that this dirty transmitter impacts the upper side more than the lower (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs March 15-16, 2017

** COLOMBIA. 5910.197, March 16 at 0703, Alcarav?n Radio with tropical music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5025, March 15 at 0617, R. Rebelde is now on, having been absent at last check 0106 (however, then I had a JBA carrier a smidgen above 5025.000, and I now see that Dave Valko had measured R. Quillabamba 3 Hz high, just right). At 0617, 5040 RHC is off, I guess nominally finishing English at 0600 now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 11860, March 16 at 1308, RHC Spanish talk is audible since Yemen [non] is so weak, i.e. second-order spur from 11840, along with matching -20 kHz spur on 11820, and much stronger first-order spurs on 11850 & 11830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 17750, March 15 at 1403, only RHC on 16m is a carrier here, with 17580 and 17730 already off. One can never be quite sure which of the trio will be operational at any time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [and non]. 7175-LSB, March 15 at 0600, NY0V/MM approaching Howland Island, in contact with much stronger LA8QQ/portable W4 in SC who has a good American accent despite being Norwegian. NY0V refers us to his qrz.com page and to http://nauticos.com for more info about this maritime expedition. Turns out to be concerned with search for remains of Amelia Earhart, Howland being one of the destinations on her flight. QRZ.com info:

The Eustace Earhart Discovery Expedition:
NY0V/MM: From around Feb 20 through March 2017. Look for me from some rare grids as we sail from KH6 and be on station around the vicinity of KH1. (Sorry, no landing!) We will be conducting deep water SONAR surveys at 18,000 ft/5400 m below the surface as we search for Amelia Earhart's Lockheed L10E. Check out http://www.nauticos.com  You can follow along on the expedition as we will be updating the expedition portal at: http://expeditionportal.nauticos.com/   I will add QSL info once I return.
You can listen to the story of my radio history on  "QSO Today" podcast on Eric, 4Z1UG's site:
http://www.qsotoday.com/podcasts/NY0V
This is podcast #111``
After this contact, LA8QQ calls CQDX on same frequency. Checking again March 16 at 0655, I find NY0V/MM on 7178-LSB working a ZL, both very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1869, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935, March 16 at 1306, Sea Breeze from JSR Tokyo is still here another Thursday with English, typical sounders; weak but no jamming audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. 5995, Thu March 16 at 1302, RNZI on new frequency, ex-7355, good S9+10 shortly after sunrise here, but will deteriorate quicker than 7355 did --- which is still on their schedule for Saturdays only, why? Pacific news now about PNG, Vanuatu, where telephony went out and they had to call in an Australian expert to fix it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020.0, March 16 at 0706, carrier at S7 in splash of 5025 Cuba; presumed SIBC already, no modulation detectable, and could be dead air as recently reported for hours on 9545 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** UKRAINE [non]. 11580, March 15 at 1330, RUI via WRMI, preview mentioning International Women`s Day which was March 8, so I conclude this file is from one week ago, not today. Then 1335 feature on an exhibition about 50 Ukrainian inventors, many of whom got mixed in with Russians during the Soviet era (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1868 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday March 15 at 1326, the 1315.5 airing on WRMI 9955, good; and // 6855, poor. Also confirmed Wed Mar 15 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490 webcast, but I was getting worried as Brother Scare was on just before instead of Financial Survival; and overlapped with the ID which overlapped with WOR starting. Also audible fairly on 7490 itself a few minutes later. Also confirmed Wed March 15 at 2355, the 2330 airing on WBCQ 9329.9v-CUSB, good.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 6855 // stronger 7730 // strongest 5850, Thursday March 16 at 0700, WRMI opening `Jazz for the Asking` hosted by Keith Perron.
The website http://www.pcjmedia.com dated March 8 now says:
``Stay tuned - We are rebuilding - PCJ Radio International twice weekly North American broadcasts --- We are rebuilding PCJ Media with an entirely new look for 2017 - In the meantime, Catch PCJ Radio International twice weekly to North America.
    Wednesday - 0100 UT on 11580
    Friday -    2200 UT on  9955``
So still overlooking the additional WRMI broadcasts I have already pointed out, notably this one, which on the WRMI grid still mistakenly Friday instead of Thursday, is labeled `Media Network Plus`, but all of them ought to be labeled PCJ, as one never knows exactly which PCJ program will be contained. The JFTA page http://www.pcjmedia.com/jfta does not mention carriage on WRMI or any SW station.
9580: note that WRMI has registered this ex-Radio Australia frequency for A-17, at exactly the same hours RA used it, 0900-2100 UT! When RA self-destructed at end of January, I suggested to Jeff White that WRMI should take over this frequency, either to preserve it for possible RA revival, or even to relay RA, whether ABC liked it or not. Would be very popular among North American SWLs and great PR for WRMI. But unknown yet what WRMI will really do with it: to become the daytime partner to 6855 transmitter at night on 285 azimuth, which has been running 24 hours, but pretty useless in the daytime, even more so in summer [WORLD OF RADIO 1869]
11580, March 16 at 1312, WRMI playing `Viva Miami` episode in Spanish with Tha?s & Jeff discussing HFCC visit to Jordania. This is a secret airing, Thu at 1300, since the skedgrid shows nothing but World Music. I`ll add it to DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 4840, March 16 at 0708, WWCR is dead air except for hum and lite whine of varying pitch and beating; S9+30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Replying to my previous remark that WRNO 7505VV is in Chinese daily at 0300-0400, Ron Howard says, ``Hi Glenn, Observed schedule for the Chinese language program ("Praise for Today"), after DST started, is daily 0200-0300 UT, noted on March 13 & 15. After 0302 back to English programming till about 0402* cut off. Ron``.
OK, not monitored at either time myself, but contradicts previous info he got from WRNO that it would stay at 10 pm Central, which was 0400 UT, and now 0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5125, March 15 at 0615, big buzz centered here, almost too close to WBCQ. March 16 at 0705, now an S9+30 open carrier on 5125.0. Much like the one on 5100.0 at 0105 March 15. What`s going on here? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11435-USB, March 16 at 1326, presumed Indonesian pirates singing and talking over each other; think I hear some English words, ``got you``, ``meet you`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
