** GUATEMALA. 4055, Oct 12 at 0554, R. Truth, S9 signal but JBM, enough to perceive that it`s an hymn in English as usual during the final hour. Listen for normal modulation level to be restored shortly by visiting engineer Ralph Borthwick, who has also assisted other missionary stations in Perú (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PHILIPPINES [non]. 11630, Oct 11 at 1427, open carrier at S3-S6, 1430 trumpet IS and music, 1431 sign-on in S Asian language, mentioning several MHz and meter-bands, and a website ending in asia.org. HFCC shows it`s R. Veritas Asia, 250 kW, 98 degrees via VATICAN, 1430-1457 in Urdu. Apparently RVA relies on better signal into Pakistan/Gulf this way than direct from Palauig (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: Not confirmed at the new time of Wed 2030 on WRMI 9955, instead back to BS on October 11. Apparently the hour carved out of BS 20-21 UT as I have been monitoring on 9955, but never published on skedgrid, has been deleted: no more R. Prague English at 2000, and no more variety including DX programs at 2030. This WOR broadcast was first monitored Sept 27 but may have started Sept 20.
WOR 1899 confirmed Wed Oct 11 at 2100 on WBCQ, 7490, fair. Also confirmed Wed Oct 11 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.00-CUSB, very poor. Next:

** U S A. 9955, Thu Oct 12 at 1345, WRMI finally with a new edition of `Viva Miami`, and since it`s in Spanish should be called “Long Live Miami“? Jeff and Thaïs are conversing about their visit to Cape Town, South Africa, for HFCC in August (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Oct 12 at 0544, WRMI just ending VOA news relay, back to Oldies; S9+20 and S9+10 respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9455 // 9395 // 7780, Thu Oct 12 at 1427, surprised to find WRMI back to Oldies tunes instead of `The Power Hour`. WRMI skedgrid http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
altho “updated Sept 28“ still shows `The Power Hour` at 13-15 UT on 7780, 9395, and 14-15 on 9455 (which were of course M-F only).
Then I check WWCR: no signal audible on 13845 altho there is a very poor one on 15825, so suspect 13845 is off the air. Huge signal on 7490 now at 1434 Oct 12 sounds like Power Hour, pushing gold & silver, especially in view of what is happening with the Girl Scouts (??? Boy Scouts co-opting them?). But WWCR pdf sked now dated October 1:
7490, M-F 9-10 am still misconverted as 15-16 UT:
“Power Talks w/ Beth & Melody in the Morning“
Power Talk was mentioned at 1448.
So it`s one of the Cedarstrom shows, not TPH. This means that TPH is not heard on any frequency at this hour. WWCR still shows `Power Hour`, Central time:
7490, M-F 7- 8 am, still misconverted as 13-14 UT;
13845, M-F 7-10 am, still misconverted as 13-16 UT [but no signal]
What`s really happening earlier on WRMI as above remains to be checked.
`Power Talks` and `Financial Survival` and any other show sponsored by gold & silver pushers to the gullible, Answer me this: if G&S are such an essential investment vs the imminent apocalypse, or at least government takeover of everything, why aren`t those who have such coins hoarding them, instead of trying to sell them in virtual transaxions, or at best, for worthless paper money? Or maybe sax & sax of cupro/nickel/zinc coins? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17775, Oct 12 at 1420, NO signal at all from KVOH, not even on 17775.115v where heard yesterday. Maybe off for repairs following my reports? Or just not propagating. Cuba is making it on 17730, and weak Saudis on 17895, 17705, 17615, but those are to the east. K-index 5 at 1500 after G1 storms.
17775.019, Oct 12 at 1607 recheck, now it`s on and blasting in at S9+20/30, only 19 Hz off-frequency, wobbling slightly, overmodulated distortion discussing marijuana en las escuelas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5830, Oct 12 at 1439, WTWW-1 is still on with PPPP instead of day frequency 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15454.88, Oct 12 at 1422, JBA carrier, much weaker than Biblis 5 kHz lower, which I measured Sept 26 at 15449.884. I`m still hearing it too with stronger signal, and the strange thing is, the higher one is at exactly the same offset/pitch with BFO step tuning to 15454.00, as to 15449.00. EiBi, NDXC/Aoki and HFCC all list nothing at all at this time on “15455“. BTW, HFCC A-17 has not been updated since Sept 27; presumably concentrating on B-17 planning instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
