8400, at 1352, JBA with flutter
9380, at 1354, fair vs presumed DW in Chinese, not audible, not 1400+

** CUBA. RHC Sunday Jan 30 check: at 1412 the special “Aló, Presidente“ frequencies are on, 13750, 15370 and 17750, the latter strong but undermodulated with buzzes, but no separate programming, all // mainstream RHC 11690, 11730, 11760, 13780, 15120, 15230; while 12040 and 15360 are absent. Recheck at 1655: 17750, 15370 and 13750 still on and still no-show Hugazo, // others.
Gone again! Esperanto from RHC scheduled Sundays 1500-1530 on 11760, but Jan 30 at 1510, just Spanish // numerous other frequencies in filatelia show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PALAU. 9950, Jan 30 at 1451, playing music including riff from “Touch Me“ by The Doors, 1453 Japanese talk, 1457 giving URL with // pronounced “surashu, surashu“, and schedule mentioning kirohertsu several times, to 1459*. Is Furusato no Kaze, 100 kW, 345 degrees from Koror via T8WH; better signal than neighbor 9955 WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RUSSIA [and non]. 6075, R. Rossii, no motorboating and not much program audio either Jan 30 at 1359, but could hear 1400+ timesignal, mixing with Taipei ID and then more Chinese from jamming. Hard to tell when Pet/Kam carrier goes off, without the motorboating roar! No sign of 2MTL or 8GAL 6074 until 1402 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. VOT was reported to have changed frequency for English to NAm at 23-24: “Frequency changes for Voice of Turkey effective from Jan. 14: 2300-2357 NF 7335+EMR 500 kW / 310 deg to NoAm, ex 5960 English; + co-channel WHRI Angel 1/5 in English on Sat (DX Mix News, Bulgaria, Jan 18 via DXLD 11-03)“
And I finally get around to checking it on Saturday January 29 at 2330: nothing but WHRI audible on 7335, but there is something weak on 5960, seems English, bothered by much stronger and bleeding DentroCuban Jamming Command on 5955 against R. República on 5954.2v. That could certainly motivate VOT to move, but onto a frequency occupied by WHRI?!
To be sure, I listen again at 2352, and do hear the VOT IS on 5960. So the change has NOT been made, or if it was, they have gone back to 5960, or even less likely, gone back on Saturdays only, possibly the only day of week WHRI is really on 7335, altho HFCC shows 17 = Sunday and Saturday.
Yet the latest HFCC also shows TRT on 7335 as if it had been there all the time since 31 Oct! And no listing for 5960 where it really was and is. Far too many changes in HFCC are masked by showing incorrect dates in effect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1549 monitoring: Saturday Jan 29 at 1846, very poor but audible on 9955, WRN via WRMI, no jamming. Jeff White reconfirms that WRMI is on the air Sat & Sun only in the 17-22 UT period, taking a break on weekdays, all with WRN relays. And WOR is also scheduled at the same time on Sundays.
3215, WWCR at 0735 UT Sun Jan 30, WOR confirmed. 9955, WRMI at 1647 Sunday, also confirmed, with usual SAH from YFR Taiwan, but generally atop it, and no jamming unlike 9965.
Next chances on 9955: Sun 1830, Mon 1230, 2230, Tue 1630, Wed 0200, 1630; 7415 WBCQ: Tue 2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, lovely Andean music from WRMI, “Aires Andinos“ show, UT Sun Jan 30 at 0533, so I settle back to listen for the rest of the half hour: unfortunately, I just caught it at a peak, as soon obscured by Cuban jamming pulses, and then alternating peaking and troughing. Our Friend in Habana finds such innocent programming a threat to the oppressed DentroCubans — even this must be jammed. Tnx a lot, Arnie!
Some other times for “Aires Andinos“ on the WRMI schedule: Wed 1230, Thu 0100, Sat 1200. The 1200 and 1230 are probably jammed too; maybe has a chance at 01. Or give up and listen to webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 15420, Jan 29 at 1847, I am hearing nothing but BBCWS in English via SOUTH AFRICA, when normally there is a collision with WBCQ on CUSB. Global Spirit Proclamation, the androgynous anapest from Fence Lake NM, is supposedly scheduled 7 days a week at 18-22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1190, Jan 30 at 1433 UT, Spanish caught my ear, mostly atop jumble of multiple stations, talking about a trip to Mérida, Yucatán. Since it seems from WNW/ESE, and the hour is rather late, I don`t think it is an XE, and there are no Yucatecans on 1190. Maybe an infomercial. Lasted about 5 minutes before losing out. Several US stations on 1190 are Spanish, per NRC AM Log, in AZ, FL, GA, MS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7534-SSB, Jan 30 at 0618, 2-way in English, one side good, the other JBA or not at all during long pauses. The one I can hear with some engine noise in background, calls his contact Mike, mentions “lockers“, “only got one drum“; 0623 “awful big ocean here“; “not one –ck— boat in 12 miles“, “I just don`t see anything“. 0628+ nothing more heard, no IDs. Sounded like he was somewhat distressed.
What else has been reported on 7534? Searching the 31,130 posts so far on the UDXF yg, I get two hits on 7534 from 2006 and 2007y, neither relevant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
