The usual jumbled-up situation later on Sunday morning, tnx to the sporadic Aló, Presidente relays. At 1509 found big open carrier on 13750, a frequency used only for Hugo, so they were QRX for him, but after no modulation except weak phone ringing, it finally cut off, giving up at 1540*. While 11760 was in Esperanto as scheduled at 1509, RHC Spanish frequencies were missing: 11730, 11800, and I think 13680: in skirt of CRI via Canada 13675, something there but unseemed // RHC music on 13770. Also open carrier on 11690. Nothing on other A,P channels 12010, 17750. At 1540, when 13750 went off, 11690 still open carrier. At 1545, 11760 had reverted to RHC music // 6110, but 11730 and 11800 still absent; as was 11680 which other days carries RNV during this hour. But: see VENEZUELA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 9525.9, VOI still there, Nov 29 at 1304, but just barely modulated, sounded like English but cannot be positive (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH. Nothing extracontinental making it on 60 m, but 75, 90 and 105 m had fair signals from here at 1325-1331+ Nov 29: 3985, 3912, 3480 with noise jamming against S Korean clands; 3320 and 3250 in Korean; 2850 in non // Korean (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Checking out the English programs from XEDA, Imagen, the best or only way to hear English from the DF, online: Program grid at http://www.imagen.com.mx/contenido/40/ indicates several time shifts, now updating our MONITORING REMINDERS CALENDAR:
The weekly LIVING IN MEXICO is now Sat 1300-1400 and Sun 1600-1700 UT.
IMAGEN NEWS Con Ana María Salazar: Mon-Sat 1130-1200; UT Mon, Tue 0500-0530; UT Wed-Sat 0430-0500.
Direct link to audio stream; don`t forget the final / —
If you hear Spanish at first, don`t give up: most of the commercials, PSAs within the English shows are in Spanish! I listened to Living in Mexico on Nov 29; it`s really a weekly roundup of material previously aired on the daily show. WTFK? This is a webcast-only `log`.
Also two months` audio available on demand:
Ana María Salazar`s original Facebook page is filled up to 5000 capacity, but said she has opened another, with lots of discussion.

** SPAIN [and non]. After listening to RHC`s En Contacto [see CUBA], I tuned on to 17595, and there was the tail end of REE`s DX program, Amigos de la Onda Corta on 17595, Sunday Nov 29 at 1352 with propagation outlook for December, wrapped up by 1355. This reminds us that in an incredibly stupid move, REE rescheduled that show this season so it conflicts with RHC`s DX program every Sunday morning. No excuse, since EC has been at that time forever. The only other airing left on REE, UT Saturdays 0605, is also inconvenient in Europe and the Americas, except Baja California Norte, Alta California and Yákima, where it`s 2205 local Fridays, if they can get any frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. VOA Spanish service, Sunday Nov 29 after 1300 was presenting the Billboard Top 20. Since all(?) these songs are in English, what`s the point of doing this on the Spanish service? Very good on 9885; recheck 1332 as I hit 13715, just dead air, then after a good many sex, both started playing some jazz, to fill the hour? Also on weak // 15590. VOA gets serious about real programming in Spanish only on weekdays.
VOA English is still active on 7575, Jazz Hour, fair Sunday Nov 29 at 1311. During this hour it`s TINIAN at 279 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9370, WTJC, at 1305 Nov 29 mentioning WHGT Christian Radio and its website, http://www.whgtchristianradio.org/ That`s an FBN affiliate on 1590 in Pennsylvania “operating on very low power“. NRC-AM Log 2009 shows it with 15000, 5000, 1000, 500 or 58 watts, depending (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9385, WWRB already on with Brother Scare, Nov 29 at 1306 tuneby, only fair as not yet built up to huge daytime signal. So the transition from 3185 to 9385 can occur as early as 1300, or as late as 1530, depending on when Dave gets around to it. Make that as early as 1200, the “official“ change time per FCC and HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VENEZUELA [non]. Sunday Nov 29 looking for Aló Presidente, which RHC B-09 schedule claims is on the air between 1400 and 1800 on 11690, 12010, 13680, 13750 and 17750 — see CUBA, 13750 was on with nothing but phone ringing at 1509-1540*. Did not check again until 1800 and found all five of those frequencies now running with YL speaking at the moment rather than Hugo; 13750 best by far, 12010 a distant second and the others weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
